    The super PACs going after Donald Trump are making a "bad, bad decision," the candidate's special counsel and adviser warned Tuesday morning, saying that if the reports are true, "it changes everything." "Donald Trump wants to be treated fairly. He will demand that the GOP treat them fairly," Michael Cohen told CNN's Chris Cuomo on "New Day." If the party does treat him fairly, Trump "will honor the pledge because he’s an honorable guy," he said. But, "if they break that agreement with him, as they say, woe be on them," Cohen cautioned, referring to the loyalty agreement Trump signed,...

    Republican donors with links to several presidential candidates - as well as a prominent GOP operative - are pooling their resources in a new effort to go after Donald Trump and keep the party's presidential front-runner from winning the nomination. The most recent bid is a reported "guerrilla campaign" led by a group called Trump Card LLC and run by Liz Mair, former communications official for the Republican National Committee. The group's goal, according to The Wall Street Journal, is to collect money from anonymous donors to "defeat and destroy" Trump, who has essentially led the GOP presidential field since...

    A well-connected GOP operative alarmed by the enduring strength of Republican Donald Trump's presidential bid is planning a "guerrilla campaign" backed by secret donors to knock him out of the race. Liz Mair, former online communications director of the Republican National Committee, recently created Trump Card LLC to "defeat and destroy" the celebrity businessman's candidacy, according to a memo obtained by The Wall Street Journal. "In the absence of our efforts, Trump is exceedingly unlikely to implode or be forced out of the race," the Trump Card memo says. "The stark reality is that unless something dramatic and unconventional is...

No, Trump. -H" Clinton tweeted, quoting a New York Times reporter's tweet on Trump's comments made earlier in the morning on MSNBC.

    Sen. Marco Rubio clarified his view on the 11 million immigrants, who are in the United States illegally. The day after a presidential debate, which exposed a continuing divide in the Republican Party on immigration, Rubio told NPR on Wednesday that he favors a path to citizenship for some, though the prospect would be very distant. "If you haven't been here very long, or you're a criminal, you will be deported," Rubio told NPR's Morning Edition. "Otherwise, you will have to come forward, pass the background check, learn English, pay a fine, because you violated the law, start paying taxes,...

    The already-bitter divide between Republican presidential candidates over immigration is deepening, a struggle that’s going to keep the party in turmoil well into 2016 – and jeopardize its chances of winning the White House next year. The clash over how to deal with immigrants in the country illegally sparked the ugliest exchanges of Tuesday's debate, as the two sides showed little taste for even a hint of compromise. They may show agreement on the basic outlines of other core conservative issues, notably tax policy, but the schism on immigration shows no signs of fading. If anything, it's deepening. Monday, a...

    Events over the past few months including the rising popularity of nontraditional, anti-establishment presidential candidates, an insurgency within the House of Representatives leading to the early retirement of John Boehner, and a politically detrimental showdown with Hillary Clinton over Benghazi, have the Republican establishment visibly shaken. On the congressional front, party Golden Boy, Paul Ryan, probably sacrificed his future dreams of the Oval Office to take over the party’s highest leadership position. A move that may not be good for the party long-term, but salvaged what could be saved of the party’s leadership. Further complicating its image problem is the...

    Well, this should make the crapweasels in D.C. listen. On Monday, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals told the immigration power-grabbers in the Obama administration to stuff it. The amnesty sympathizers in the media mourned mightily. "Appeals court rules against Obama's plan to protect about 5 million people from deportation," the Associated Press spun. "Court again blocks Obama's plan to protect undocumented migrants," the left-wing U.K. Guardian decried.

    Donald Trump's campaign for president drew early mockery for being nothing more than "entertainment." Almost five months later, there's little doubt that Trump has become one of the figures most responsible for shaping policy on his signature issue: immigration. Republicans from the state to federal level have worked to enact tighter immigration laws, as the issue has gained prominence on the campaign trail. "For the the longest time we saw a lot of anti-immigrant measures happen at the federal level, or complete inaction at the federal level, and then we saw the states going in the opposite direction, and seeking...

    While Trump and other GOP presidential candidates push for a giant wall between the United States and Mexico, San Diego is literally building a bridge. In December, an international group of developers, which includes real estate magnate Sam Zell, plans to open a pedestrian walkway that bypasses the regular U.S. border crossings and directly connects San Diego to Tijuanas international airport. Meanwhile, all five members of San Diegos congressional delegation, including stalwart Republican Reps. Darrell Issa and Duncan Hunter, have successfully advocated for the $500 million in additional funds needed to expand the main border crossing. And the citys...

I do not believe that is the case with the sudden withdrawal of Scott Walker from the presidential race. Instead, it is my belief that this event -- and, specifically, why it happened the way that it did -- is a seminal moment in the history of the conservative movement, the media, and even our country. Let me first say that, while Walker was my choice...

    A battle over sanctuary cities is dividing Senate Republicans.

But its unclear whether the bill can get through the Senate and not just because of opposition from Democrats. In addition to limiting federal money for sanctuary cities, Sen. David Vitter's (R-La.) bill would increase the amount of prison time an undocumented immigrant could serve if they re-enter the United States after having previously been deported. Conservatives like his plan, but it has drawn opposition from Sens. Jeff...

But here on the Texas border some communities are engaged in activities that go beyond talk, enforcing some of the toughest rules in the country limiting the types of ID parents can show to receive copies of birth certificates. The result has been a refusal to issue birth certificates to many of the Texas-born children of immigrants here...

His command of policy, record of accomplishment in a purple state, inclusive message and refusal to pander make other contenders seem small and shallow. Bushs biggest problem, however, is that he is not always on. Bushs debate performance was solid on substance but lacked Sen. Marco Rubios eloquence and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christies pugnaciousness. He made no errors and ably defended himself on immigration reform and Common Core...

    Jeb Bushs most famous, or infamous, remark of the campaign season was that a Republican candidate must be willing to lose the primary in order to win the general election. For the most part, Bush has campaigned like he meant what he said: Hes defended his positions on immigration reform and Common Core, though theyre unpopular with much of the Republican base, and he angered conservatives on Capitol Hill by pushing for a confirmation vote on Attorney General Loretta Lynch, which some were trying to hold up at the time. But in the week leading up to the first Republican...

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has suffered from criticism that he has not fought back against those who sought to diminish his campaign. At the RedState Gathering on Saturday, Bush delivered passionate remarks and named his enemies: Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Bush went after Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for her unwillingness to take a stance on whether to construct the Keystone XL pipeline. At a town hall event on the campaign trail in New Hampshire, Clinton avoided providing a yes or no answer about whether she would support construction of the pipeline. "She can't now have an opinion...

    LITTLETON, N.H. Former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) was in his element Saturday giving hugs, posing for pictures and shaking hands beside an oversized picnic pavilion at the Veterans of Foreign Wars post here in Littleton. He was asking Granite Staters for their votes in the first-in-the-nation primary. But this time, not for himself. Lindsey Graham, hes my man! McCain declared with a chuckle,...

    Repeat after Jeb Bush: He is not angry. Not even a tiny bit. Floridas Republican former governor is happy joyful even. And campaigning throughout Orlando Monday the merriest of presidential candidates reminded supporters over and over again that he is nothing like some of his churlish counterparts in the GOP primary. Heres the deal: I dont have anger in my heart, he told about 200 people at a community center in Maitland Monday evening. We shouldnt be scolding people. We shouldnt be saying outrageous things that turns people off to the conservative message. Im not a grievance candidate, he...

    Here in the House, the peoples priorities continue to be our priorities, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) told a news conference on Wednesdayone day after the father of Kate Steinle, a murdered San Francisco woman, urged Congress to pass legisation that would take felonious illegal aliens off America's streets for good.

But on Wednesay, Boehner listed the peoples priorities as entitlement reform; human trafficking; veterans health care; free trade, EPA regulations;...

    Florida Sen. Marco Rubio says Donald Trump's comment that Sen. John McCain is not a war hero should disqualify him from the 2016 presidential race. "It's not just absurd, it's offensive. It's ridiculous. And I do think it's a disqualifier as commander-in-chief," Rubio said in an interview Sunday with CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union." The Florida senator was the latest Republican White House contender to hit Trump after the real estate mogul said Saturday that McCain "is not a war hero" because he was captured and held prisoner in Vietnam. "He is a war hero because he...

    Te 2016 gaffe wars have finally begun. Oh, there have been gaffes before now in this presidential race, but the one Jeb Bush uttered on Wednesday that in order to get our economy moving, "people need to work longer hours" may be the first of this campaign's gaffes that is being accepted by both his political opponents and the media as terribly consequential ("Jeb Bush's 'Longer Hours' Remark Will Haunt Him," reads a headline at Time magazine). I may not have a lot of love for Jeb, but even this liberal is willing to say that on this...

    Jeb Bush may have made his first notable gaffe of the 2016 presidential campaign, declaring in an interview that Americans need to work longer hours for substantial economic growth to return. The Republican presidential candidate was conducting a recorded interview with New Hampshires The Union-Leader and was answering a question about his tax plan, which he used as an opportunity to state his goals for economic growth. My aspiration for the country and I believe we can achieve it, is 4 percent growth as far as the eye can see, Bush said. Which means we have to be a lot...
