    Legal Insurrection ^ | 08/05/2016 | William A. Jacobson
    What a long, strange trip this year’s presidential election has become. The media (mainstream, liberal and conservative #NeverTrump) have swarmed all over Trump in the past two weeks. Some Republicans who did not previously oppose Trump also are breaking ranks and coming out against him. The media, by and large, has moved on from scrutiny of Hillary. For Trump supporters, it’s confirmation of bias against him and the need to tear down the establishment in its broadest sense. For Trump opponents, it’s confirmation of the reasons for their opposition. Certainly, “anything can happen.” But as of now, the polls mostly...

    "Pocahantas." For a long time I've been busting on Marco Rubio people, and the class -- Upper Middle Class College-Educated -- so enthused about him.* I've said this before, but this class, in particular, is extremely bully-able. Their class itself is is the product of liberal social cues and mores. College being one of the main prerequisites of class entry (other prerequisites: That your parents are also college-educated), this class is particularly sensitive to threats to their social status by liberals.** Any class whose credentials are monitored by a progressive/archliberal dominant cadre is going to be easily whipsawed into conformity...

    On the right, we’ve grown to pride ourselves on our greater openness to debate and ideas, on having no need to toe a Politically Correct line or crawl into a “safe space” like pampered college kids who just can’t handle hearing from anyone who disagrees with them. For myself, I am so personally dedicated to this ideal that I even perform the great personal sacrifice of reading the comments field beneath my articles. Yet somehow I wasn’t surprised to see Donald Trump supporters, those swaggering tough guys, turn one of their favorite Internet forums into a safe space where they...

    Former House Majority Leader Tom Delay told Cavuto the GOP voters need to understand that the “delegates pick the nominee.” Tom Delay: It’s not stealing the nomination. It’s the process. People need to realize that this is not an election of a president. This is the nomination of a candidate. And there’s a process and there’s rules and everybody has a fair shot at those rules. But in the end, the representatives, the delegates make the decision at the convention one way or another. And if no candidate gets to the convention with the majority of the votes then the...

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says GOP front-runner Donald Trump must decide "how serious a candidate he wants to be," after failing to correct a questioner who said President Obama was a Muslim and not a U.S. citizen. "I wouldn't have permitted that," Christie responded when asked how he would have handled the same situation. "I would correct him. I'd say that the president's a Christian and he was born in this country. Those two things are self-evident." Thursday night in New Hampshire, in front of about 3,000 fans, the first questioner told Trump, "We have a problem in this...

College graduates appeared to be the group most inclined to believe Obama’s protestations that he is a Christian; 63% took Obama at his word.

    1. CNN's format was awful. The entire effort was intended to instigate fights between and among the candidates. They wanted a brawl. The early part of the debate was the worst -- right out of the box, piling on Donald Trump. Like Trump or not, this is a Republican debate. As I've been saying for a while, when will the RNC stop turning over the GOP debates to the media? I find these debate formats demeaning of the candidates and not particularly informative. 2. Twice now Ted Cruz was treated as a third-tier candidate. He received very little time and...

    Jeb Bush revealed his intentions early in December and the money quickly poured in. Scott Walker made a big splash at a speech to social conservatives in Iowa in January. Marco Rubio jumped in the race with great fanfare in April. For the rest of the spring, the Republican primary race was the Bush-Walker-Rubio show, with the former Florida governor, the Wisconsin governor and the Florida senator dominating the polls. Each made a compelling case to the base, and each was viewed as acceptable to the party establishment. Then, on June 16, Donald Trump jumped in the race. As the...

Most importantly, this plan reestablishes the principle that American's immigration laws should serve the interests of its own citizens. For too long, 'immigration reform' plans in Washington have served the special interests at the expense of working Americans." Sessions goes on to say that Trump's plan puts "working Americans foremost" and puts an emphasis on lifting...

He labels Trump “a counterfeit Republican and no conservative.” And he argues that Trump is an affront to anyone devoted to the legacy of William F.

Just as Buckley excommunicated the John Birch Society from the conservative movement in the 1960s, so should conservatives today...

Jobs and the economy are always at the top of the list. But there was barely a mention of this on Thursday night.

Trump rejected claims that he treats females who disagree with him unfairly. “When I’m attacked, I fight back,” Trump told host Chuck Todd on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “I was attacked very viciously by those women,” he said of female opponents his detractors say he has demeaned. “What they said about me is far worse than what I said about them,” Trump added. “Am I allowed to defend myself? I want to get back to the country. We have such problems.”...

    Suffice it to say there are at least two women who support Donald Trump for president. A duo of black women — hosting a YouTube “show” called “The Viewers View” — eviscerated Fox News debate moderator Megyn Kelly for her questions related to Trump’s statements on Twitter concerning women.

    Daily Caller ^ | 08/08/2015 | Matt K. Lewis
    A while back, I urged Rush Limbaugh to use his incredible influence on the right and call out Donald Trump for his irresponsible comments. In the intervening weeks, Trump’s rhetoric only intensified. Yet, even after Thursday night’s GOP debate — when it became painfully obvious that Donald Trump is a liberal — Limbaugh continued to prop up The Donald. I don’t want to be accused of misrepresenting what he said, so I’ll simply provide the headline and link from his own website: “The Orders to Take Out Trump Must Have Gone to Fox, Not the Other Candidates.” Even if Mr....

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: It was just 24 hours ago, ladies and gentlemen -- a mere 24 hours ago -- that I was behind this very Golden EIB Microphone informing you that I had come across a bit of news. The bit of news was that big-time Republican donors had ordered to take out Donald Trump in the debate last night. We all made a mistake. We assumed that the orders went out to the candidates. But the candidates did not make one move toward taking Donald Trump out. The broadcast network did; the candidates didn't. I mean, let's review. The...

    Youtube ^ | 08 | Chris Christie
    Hi, this is New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. I saw a video today from Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that is truly disturbing. In trying to address the current controversy on whether there should be federal funding for Planned Parenthood Clinics, Secretary Clinton says that Republicans are against funding for women’s healthcare. Well nothing could be further from the truth and let me use my state, New Jersey, as an example. We generously fund federally qualified health clinics throughout New Jersey, which provides excellent care for women and men in our state who need it. Everything from cancer screenings...

    A new poll of voters likely to take part in the New Hampshire Republican primary shows Donald Trump with the biggest lead he has yet held in the GOP race. The Monmouth University poll, released Tuesday morning, has Trump at 24 percent -- double the support of the next-highest Republican, Jeb Bush, at 12 percent. Scott Walker and John Kasich are tied for third at seven percent apiece -- a significant drop for Walker from recent months and a significant advance for Kasich, who announced his candidacy on June 21. Following are Marco Rubio, at six percent; Ben Carson and...

    Donald Trump visited the Mexican border yesterday to try and mend fences with Hispanics while still looking tough on illegal immigration following his comments that Mexican illegal immigrants included 'rapists' and 'murderers'. But all the talk on Twitter was of the white baseball cap sported by the Republican candidate for president - which featured his campaign slogan 'Make America Great Again'.
