    “How do I think she should prepare? I think she should say I’m going to hold three press conferences, I’m not doing the debates. Because it’s like the third rail,” Ablow said. “I don’t know that debating Donald Trump is something you can plan for great success with. It’s like getting in the ring with Muhammad Ali. Because you got the rodeo clown and the skilled boxer in one person. In a way if I would have been advising Hillary Clinton I would say listen, say that he’s a reality TV host that’s been beyond the pale and simply don’t...

    For Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas), the decision to endorse Republican nominee Donald Trump wasn’t an easy one. Although for the former Republican presidential nominee’s supporters the decision seemed to be sudden and rash, Cruz told KTRK-TV Friday that the decision to support Trump didn’t come as a result of a political deal, but rather it came after several months of thought and prayer. “There were no deals,” Cruz told the news station. “We had been engaged in conversations. You know it’s been a decision as I said I’ve been thinking about and praying about for weeks and months, discussing it...

    President Barack Obama used a pseudonym in email communications with Hillary Clinton and others, according to FBI records made public Friday. The disclosure came as the FBI released its second batch of documents from its investigation into Clinton’s private email server during her tenure as secretary of state. The 189 pages the bureau released includes interviews with some of Clinton’s closest aides, such as Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills; senior State Department officials; and even Marcel Lazar, better known as the Romanian hacker “Guccifer.” In an April 5, 2016 interview with the FBI, Abedin was shown an email exchange between...

    Two months after he was booed off the stage at the Republican National Convention for snubbing his party’s presidential nominee, Sen. Ted Cruz endorsed Donald Trump on Friday. That declaration to vote for him, though, comes after the Texas senator openly disparaged his primary opponent repeatedly — in part responding to Trump’s attacks on his wife and father. 1. Early on, Cruz speculated that Trump’s tax returns could show a mob connection In February, Cruz offered his take on why Trump hadn’t released his tax returns in an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” suggesting that they might show “Donald's...

Wednesday night, protesters were reportedly blocking the interstate in response to the death of Keith Lamont Scott, a black man who was shot and killed by a black police officer on Tuesday. In response to the protest, Glenn Reynolds, a University of Tennessee law professor known for his blog, Instapundit, tweeted motorists should “run them down”:

    Highway express lanes provide a faster trip for carpoolers, people who drive low-emission cars, and solo travelers who are willing to pay more.ThatÂ’s the idea, anyway.But as Americans drive more miles than ever before, express lanes are facing a challenge: they are too popular. So many drivers of all kinds are using the lanes that it is increasingly difficult for transportation officials to keep them speedy.For solo drivers, the tolls in express lanes typically vary based on demand. In some places, drivers pay more during peak travel times, and in others prices go up as more cars enter the lane....

They tell me ‘I might make up my mind as I get into the voting booth.’” “They’re voting for Donald Trump,” I told him. “They just don’t want to tell you.” Maybe they are embarrassed, or just not inclined to share with others that they’re angry and want change. Maybe it’s buyer’s remorse on Obama’s “fundamental transformation” of America that insults police. They know that their...

It asks for practical input on 14 policy items, from illegal immigration to the $19 trillion federal debt. But it also seeks advice on a broader scope. Should Mr. Trump defend his agenda, attack Mrs. Clinton’s ideas or present an equal balance between the two? Here’s a few more questions from the poll, verbatim: "Do you think Trump should refer to Hillary as 'Crooked Hillary' on stage? "Should Trump call out Hillary's reluctance to say 'radical Islamic terrorism' and her underlying fear of being politically incorrect?...

    Eric Thayer/Reuters via ZUMA Press On Sunday, the Republican Party establishment officially endorsed Donald Trump's false narrative about the birther conspiracy. For five years, Trump has pushed the discredited theory that President Barack Obama was not born in the United States. Even after the White House released Obama's birth certificate in 2011, Trump continued to fan the flames of this conspiracy. He refused to admit that he was wrong until last Friday, when his role in the birther movement became an issue in the presidential election. Then, rather than admit he was wrong, Trump falsely blamed Hillary Clinton for starting...

    It seems that Americans have 'always seen ambitious women as unhealthy' #Election 2016 is just around a month and a half away but some Hillary Clinton supporters are already starting to make excuses for her increasingly likely defeat. Toward that goal, Rebecca Onion wrote a recent piece in Slate entitled “America Has Always Seen Ambitious Women as Unhealthy.” The theory is that Americans are rejecting Clinton because they think her relentless drive for the Oval Office is making her sick. The problem is that the author has had to reach back to the Edwardian age to find examples of ambitious...

Hillary Clinton says Trump’s “demagogic” popping off borders on treason and shows why he’s unfit to be commander in chief. The dueling arguments, played out on Twitter and cable news, sharply politicized the latest outbreak of domestic terror — a series of planted bombs throughout New York and New Jersey, as well as a stabbing spree at a Minnesota mall. “We don’t wanna do any profiling,” Trump bemoaned during a phone interview with “Fox and Friends” on Monday morning, before going on to...

With his endorsement in an interview this week in the Times of Israel, the former editor of Commentary magazine parts ways with the many neoconservatives who say they cannot support the Republican nominee because of his foreign policy views. Podhoretz, 86, said that any concerns he had about Trump are outweighed by his trepidation at a Hillary Clinton presidency. He cites especially her role, as secretary of state in President Barack Obama’s first term, in shaping last year’s deal in which Iran rolled back...

    States are seen as the laboratories for democracy. They can be places to cite great public policy successes and highlight the many horrible failures. As more Democratic states adopt more anti-gun policies, there are fears that the groundwork for confiscation is being set. Of all places, you would think that California, or New York, would be the place that Second Amendment rights advocates fear would be the test area for such policies. Nope. It’s actually Hawaii. The Aloha State is the first in the country that requires its gun-owning residents to enter a federal database (via NRA Hunters): Hawaii’s...

Before the rub, Fallon did sneak in a few subtle quips, like asking Trump if he knew what a coin...

Ira Mehlman of the Federation for American Immigration Reform, or FAIR, says Obama's own security people have admitted there is no way to vet the refugees for affiliation to radical Islamic groups such as ISIS. Yet the administration has announced it's raising the number of refugees that will be permitted into the U.S. to 110,000 during the coming fiscal year, which begins October 1. That's a 30-percent increase from the 85,000 permitted during the current year.

He could be a Hillary replacement and probably the best replacement. Joe Biden -- no Elizabeth Waren -- probably not Kaine promoted -- possibility Bernie Sanders -- Remote possibility Either way, if Hillary has to drop it means civil war within the Democratic party. It's going to take a light touch to consolidate that and Colin Powell might have it and can neutralize much Trumps platform.

    Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign issued a explainer condemning a cartoon frog meme for allegedly being a symbol of white supremacy. The “Donald Trump, Pepe the frog, and white supremacists” explainer includes an image shared by Republican presidential Donald Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., referencing Clinton’s “basket of deplorables” statement:
  • The Root: We Need a New National Anthem

    The self-righteous hindsight of the left exposes itself again as progressive writer Lawrence Ware suggests, “Put simply, we need a new national anthem…” In an article published by The Root on September 12, Ware urged for the rewriting of the national anthem due to the “vicious legacy of who wrote this song and what it represents.” He referenced a Counterpunch article which argues that Francis Scott Key, the author of the national anthem, was a pro-slavery, black abusing, religious nut. To ask black people to stand for the national anthem, Counterpunch argued, is comparable to asking a Jewish person to...

    Original title of the article - "I Protected Hillary Clinton In The Secret Service - Here's Why Her 'Fainting' Video Really Scares Me" I protected First Lady Hillary Clinton, President Bill Clinton, and their family while I served in the Secret Service Uniform Division as an officer from 1991-2003. By now, you have most likely seen the startling video of Hillary Clinton ‘fainting.’ Through the lens of my 29-year-career in The Service, I can see what a naked-eyed media pundit cannot: There is something seriously wrong with Mrs. Clinton.Pneumonia or overheating are highly suspect excuses and I’ll explain why.(snip) Here’s...

    In Medieval times, Kings and Queens interested in maintaining control over small, outlying geographical areas arranged a complex system of fiefdoms, vesting feudal lords with their imprimatur to tell the local serfs and vassals what to do, and granting them the “power” to extract taxes – a portion of which would be given to the royals. Despite Constitutional strictures created to insure the contrary, the United States federal government has followed pretty much the same template, albeit on a bureaucratic, rather than monarchical, level. Case in point, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which is showing once more that it is...

    A little, that is. Shadi Hamid writes in the LA Times about why Islam isn't like other faiths -- as I've long been explaining here. He explains the reason the Quran is different from the Bible in very articulate terms: Contrary to what many think, there is no Christian equivalent to Koranic "inerrancy," even among far-right evangelicals. Muslims believe the Koran is not only God's word, but God's actual speech -- in other words, every single letter and word in the Koran comes directly from God. This seemingly semantic difference has profound implications. If the Koran is God's speech, and...

    Okay, we have this nice constitution with eligibility requirements for President of the United States. Who's job is it to enforce the health issues and actually determine elibility. We have physician's statements for Hillary (and Trump), but who actually has the fiduciary responsibility and how is it done?

    Hillary Clinton suddenly exited the 9/11 anniversary ceremony in NYC today suffering from being “overheated,” according to her campaign, but the ex-Secretary of State is still coming out West to rake in some Hollywood dough on Tuesday. “Nothing has changed in the Secretary’s schedule,” a source very close to the Clinton campaign told Deadline Sunday. After flying into the Bay Area and hitting up Silicon Valley wallets on Monday, the Democratic Presidential candidate is set for big ticket Los Angeles fundraisers at Seth MacFarlane and Barry Diller’s homes on September 13. Ex-Disney boss Michael Eisner and wife Jane are among...

    I just watch Newt defend Trump on his Putin statements. I think the best argument is the statement that 0bama made prior to his re-election that once re-elected, tell Putin he'd have more flexibility.

    The New York Post ^ | September 11, 2016 | Michael Goodwin
    There is nothing more to learn about Hillary Clinton’s home-brew server, deleted e-mails, chronic cough or anything else that makes her look bad, according to The Washington Post. And The New York Times, stung by Clinton’s woeful performance at last week’s presidential forum, believes the debates are going to be a total disaster unless moderators get much, much tougher with Donald Trump. To judge from her tone, the Gray Lady finally has found somebody she wants to waterboard. Naturally, it’s a Republican, not a terrorist. America’s two most prominent newspapers used to compete for Pulitzer Prizes and readers, but now...

    Fifteen years after the 9/11 attacks, Islamophobia is on the rise in America.Anti-Muslim hate crimes are approximately five times more frequent than they were before 2001, according to the FBI. The past year has been particularly brutal, especially in the aftermath of Islamic State-claimed attacks in Europe and the San Bernardino shootings last December carried out by a Muslim husband and wife. More reports of mosque vandalism and attacks against those believed to be Muslim surfaced. Anti-Muslim rhetoric has also been given an enormous boost of pseudo-credibility and prominence by Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
