    Do you remember last week (or so) when Trump was saying that things are worse for African-Americans in 2016 than at any time in their history? You probably laughed because it was such a ridiculous thing to say. And perhaps you wondered what kind of person says something that is so clearly false. The answer is a Master Persuader. That’s who. The recent headlines about police shootings, and Colin Kaepernick’s protests in particular, had focused the nation’s attention on the PROBLEMS that still need to be solved for African-Americans to fully enjoy the American experience. When you focus on something,...

Jenkins and Brooks made the same gesture prior to Monday’s game against the Bears. On that night, they...

    Is Hillary Clinton’s campaign pulling the plug on its hopes to win the batlleground state of battleground states: Ohio? That’s what CNN’s Jeff Zeleny wondered this morning as he noted Clinton has not been in the state since her epic Cleveland coughing fit on Labor Day.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSFZTd9PgRs “So long Ohio? It’s been 20 days Hillary Clinton has stepped foot into this class battleground state, and she’s not expected to visit it again in the month of September,” Zeleny said. But it’s not because the campaign believes she has it sewn up, but rather the opposite. “That is a nod to the...

I settled into a role as a media advisor and writer for the campaign, submitting promotional ideas, op-eds, and written material for...

    There was some discussion last week about how NBC would try to physically aid candidate Hillary Clinton’s optics with a custom designed debate platform intended to give the viewer the a false illusion of scale and scope. Well, it appears that NBC has done exactly that. A comparison of both debate podiums reflects that one is visibly larger, and taller, than the other; and a debate standing platform is evident as the stage is being set up.

    In House of Representatives v. Burwell, the House challenged the legality of subsidies the Obama administration paid to insurers. Judge Rosemary Collyer ruled that the House as an institution had standing, and that the payments were made without an appropriation. Currently, the case is on appeal to the D.C. Circuit. While the litigation has had an unexpected success in the courts, its origin was rocky. As I discuss in Chapter 23 of Unraveled, one of the most difficult aspects the case was finding an attorney to take it–or more precisely, an attorney whose law firm would allow him keep the...

"Occasionally you get a question that is just so out of left field that I answered it with: Bull----," Johnson said at the annual Texas Tribune Festival.

The bill, written behind closed doors by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, was brought to the floor late Thursday afternoon, and for the majority of Senate Republicans, represented their first opportunity to see the text. According to McConnell, senators will have four days (two of them on a weekend) to review the bill before having to cast their votes next week. As far as conservative priorities go, the bill is a failure....

Husted's office has removed 465,000 deceased voters and 1.3 million duplicate registrations from Ohio's voter rolls in recent years. His office also has a program to cancel the registrations of those who do not update their registrations or vote over six years, including three...

But what's most crazy about this story is that "Katica" was able to discover the greatest "bombshell" of the entire Hillary email scandal with just a couple of internet searches while the FBI, with unlimited access to government records, spent months "investigating" this case and missed it all. The only question now is whether the FBI "missed" this evidence because of gross...

    Hillary Clinton believes Americans need to be as worried about gun violence as they are about terrorism. "[I]t's not only terrorists we need to be worried about," Clinton said in an interview published Thursday afternoon by AARP. The Democratic nominee's remarks came as she explained she has a plan to combat both terrorism as well as the broader issue of gun violence in the U.S. Clinton was prompted by the question: "What would you do to address terrorism?"

  • Washington at Its Worst: Senate Passes Nonexistent Bill

    The Daily Signal ^ | September 21, 2016 | Rachel Bovard
    On Tuesday night, the Senate voted to proceed to the continuing resolution, a bill that will allegedly fund the government until Dec. 9. The only problem is that there isn’t actually a bill yet. There is no text. There is no agreement between Democrats and Republicans on what the bill will fund—Planned Parenthood, the Export-Import Bank, control of the internet—all of it remains a mystery. Yet the Senate voted 89-7 to proceed to this nonexistent bill. The Senate operates under complex parliamentary rules that require a series of votes in order to “proceed to” or “get onto” a bill. The...

    Ervin explained in her Facebook post that on September 19, "while in uniform, I made the conscious decision to not stand for the Star Spangled Banner because I feel like a hypocrite, singing about 'land of the free' when, I know that only applies to some Americans." Ervin said in the post that she was punished by Navy officials and that the "equipment I need to do my Naval job" was taken away.

    The explosion of racial violence in Charlotte, N.C. has led to a gun buying spree by locals worried about their safety. At Hyatt Guns, one of the nation's largest, staff arrived Thursday morning after the second night of riots and encountered a line of buyers. "First off, our prayers are with law enforcement this morning. People are afraid.

    The details on the Charlotte riots and attacks on motorists trapped on the highway and others are in our earlier post.Instapundit (law professor Glenn Reynolds) was suspended from Twitter (then later reinstated) after posting the following tweet as those riots and highway blockades were ongoing:Professor Jacobson has asked me to address whether such an act would be lawful as a justified act of self-defense. I’m on a flight now using airplane WiFi, so I’ll make this quick. (Before I go on, however, I should point out that Professor Reynolds has added some important context to his pithy tweet, and these...
