    Elderly throwback candidate enlists elderly throwback husband's elderly throwback VP. Its no secret that Hillary Clinton is throwing everything at the wall, hoping that something will stick with millennials. She desperately needs their support but, so far, theyre less enthusiastic than one of those panda bears that wont have sex to save its own species. Something has to be done, so Hillary has unveiled her secret millennial-attracting weapon.

    The mind boggles, as during her press conference in Orlando, Attorney General Loretta Lynch casually admitted that she has no idea of the location of the wife of the Orlando shooter who may well have been aware of his attack and provided material support for it. Dont believe me? "Has the shooters wife left the state of Florida?" a reporter asked Lynch during her press conference Tuesday. "Right now, I dont know exactly the answer to that," Lynch candidly replied. "I believe she was going to travel but I do not know exactly her location now."

    It feels like a bazooka and sounds like a cannon. One day after 49 people were killed in the Orlando shooting, I traveled to Philadelphia to better understand the firepower of military-style assault weapons and, hopefully, explain their appeal to gun lovers. But mostly, I was just terrified. Many gun shops turned down our request to fire and discuss the AR-15, a style of semi-automatic rifle popular with mass killers such as San Bernardino terrorist Syed Farook and similar to the Sig Sauer MCX rifle used by Orlando terrorist Omar Mateen. Killers in mass shootings used AR-15, thanks to...

    When we had the pleasure of co-hosting actress, and first time author Stacey Dash at our first author's night this year, I noted that she frequently stressed her pride in being independent-minded in interviews. As she shows in her newly published memoirs, the industry she works in has tried to stifle her independence and doesnt give her credit for having much of a mind. The powers-that-be in Hollywood are wrong on both counts. Hollywood was never a particularly conservative place nor was the industry it is famous for especially right-leaning. Yet and still, in days of yore there was a...
  • Republican party now more hated in US than it's been in 24 YEARS and Donald Trump may be to blame

    (UK) Daily Mail ^ | April 29, 2016 | James Wilkinson
    The Republican Party is now more hated than it's been in 24 years, new research shows - and it might be the fault of Donald Trump. In October, 37 percent of people polled had a favorable view of the Republican Party and 58 percent viewed it negatively. Now those numbers are 33 percent in favor and 62 percent against, according to data released by the Pew Research Center Thursday. That puts the party at its lowest point since 1992 - the latest point in a drop that has coincided with the rise of Trump.

    Sen. Ted Cruz blamed an "extreme strain of Islam" for Tuesday's terrorist attacks in Brussels, which saw at least 34 killed and 170 injured after two explosions hit the Belgian capital. Cruz also argued in a statement that the attacks are not "isolated incidents." The two attacks took place outside of the Brussels airport and the Maelbeek metro station near the European Union less than a week after Salah Abdesalah, the terrorist behind the Paris attacks in November, was captured.

    On Monday's All In, MSNBC's Joy Ann oddly asserted that "what could end up saving the Republican Party" from a Donald Trump nomination is "the snobbery of the Founding Fathers and the early proponents of the system, because the popular vote...doesn't choose the nominee. It's chosen at the state conventions. It's chosen by party insiders." Reid might have been thinking of the Electoral College system, where the voters in each state choose electors, who then vote for a specific nominee for president. [video below] Host Chris Hayes turned to Reid and Buzzfeed News's McKay Coppins for their take on the...

    (CNN)Ted Cruz argued that since he's the only candidate who has been able to beat Donald Trump, he's the candidate conservatives should turn to as the chief alternative to the businessman. "It is now apparent that the only campaign that can beat Donald Trump and that has beaten Donald Trump is our campaign," he said in an interview on "State of the Union" with CNN's Jake Tapper. Cruz argued that while Trump has "consistently managed to score in the 20s and 30s," many voters view him unfavorably and are concerned about his chances in a general election. "An awful lot...

    Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson is seeking to take control of his struggling presidential campaign, saying in an interview that his drop in the polls is the fault of his advisers and that he plans to shake up his staff in the coming days. Carson, sitting alone Wednesday in the basement of his Maryland house, said that no one's job is safe. He complained about budgetary management in a campaign that has spent millions and called some of his top staffers overpaid and ineffective in broadcasting his message.

    Polarizing is a descriptive term used by a pontificating media to disparage various elements they find antithetical to their own worldview. Generally, when the term is used it is wrongly assigned. However, in the case of Ted Cruz its unfortunately accurate. When Jason Johnson sits down to discuss his pathway to the nomination with George Will, it says more about Jason Johnson than it does about those who read Wills opinion of the aforementioned pathway. What it essentially says is theres a need to affirm something that isnt factually supported by any measure of quantifiable empirical evidence. Ted Cruz Value...

    Jeb Bush, a rumored 2016 Republican presidential candidate, just decided to publish hundreds of thousands of emails sent to him during his time as governor of Florida. On its face it seems like a great idea in the name of transparency, but there's one huge problem: neither Bush nor those who facilitated the publication of the records, including the state government, decided to redact potentially sensitive personal information from them. "In the spirit of transparency, I am posting the emails of my governorship here," a note on Bush's website says. "Some are funny; some are serious; some I wrote in...

He proceeds instead from a kind of fixed idea. President Obamas policies have from the beginning been dogged by a curious kind of obsolescence, as...
