    Donald Trumps feud with GOP pollster Frank Luntz escalated Monday with Trump calling on Fox News to fire Luntz from overseeing its post-debate focus groups, and Luntz launching a profanity-laden tirade to describe the real estate showman turned renegade presidential candidate. In an interview with POLITICO, Luntz said Trump and Democratic presidential insurgent Bernie Sanders are delivering a big f- you to the elites in America. And that resonates on both sides, Luntz said. But f- you doesnt solve anything. F- you doesnt make life any better. F- you makes you feel good, but it doesnt get...

    Haven't we beaten this to death already? In my opinion neither side came out of this looking very professional and the quicker we conservatives put this behind us the better. Is Trump a conservative in the classic sense we mostly support here? Not likely. Is Kelly the conservative newscaster we hope she would be? Not as much as some of us hope. But before this debate squabble started we would have thought both of them were on our side of the spectrum and frankly if you put both on a see-saw they would both tilt right. I'm not going to...

    Thursday was the biggest night of the political year so far, for what happened on the stage at Cleveland's Quicken Loans Arena and for what happened offstage as well. The stage was the scene of the first two Republican presidential debates, hosted by Fox News, which lasted some 200 minutes between 5 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. Eastern Time. What happened there did not go unnoticed. According to overnight Nielsen ratings, the two-hour prime time debate got a rating as high as the National Basketball Finals almost triple the highest rating of a Republican debate in the 2012 cycle and...

We're told to ignore what was in front of our eyes: the Fox media elite carrying water for the Republican establishment and their own political predilections. Fox had their own agenda, and it has nothing to do with Republican voters' concerns or what our candidates have to offer America. There were winners and losers. The winner was the media conglomerate that owns Fox News and Megyn Kelly's career....

    Donald Trump offered the single best, most original policy idea in the Republican Party debate Thursday night. He also demonstrated by far the greatest understanding of a complicated area of public policy. There, I said it. People have been avoiding noticing this out of a dual aversion to Trump's brand of demagogic anti-immigrant politics and an excessive sense that deference is owed to the real professional politicians up on the stage. But while I wouldn't rank Trump as one of the great health wonks of all time, his answer to a question challenging him to defend his past praise of...

    Donald Trump may top the polls in the contest for the Republican presidential nomination, but Thursdays debate was a reminder that the party has able rivals who eventually could taken him down and who also could mount a stiff challenge to Hillary Rodham Clinton in the general election. Trump performed in typical style in the two-hour debate the same style that has helped him blow past the other candidates. But as the campaigns broke camp here Friday morning, the smiles on the faces of other candidates advisers told the fuller story of what happened on the stage at...

    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...

    Fox's GOP debate was watched by 24 million viewers on Thursday night, according to Nielsen data, making it the highest-rated primary debate in television history.

The ratings, which were delivered by Nielsen on Friday afternoon, shattered even the rosiest expectations for the beginning of debate season. The numbers from Thursday night's...

    ( - Near the end of the debate Thursday night, Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly asked conservative Republican Sen. Ted Cruz if he'd had “any word from God.” Of the hundreds of questions that could have been asked, Kelly chose “an interesting closing question” for the candidates, suggested by a Facebook user, who said, ‘I want to know if any of them have received a word from God on what they should do and take care of first.’ “Senator Cruz, start from you. Any word from God?” Kelly asked. “Well, I am blessed to receive a word from God every...

    The first GOP 2016 presidential debate was substantive, fast-paced, informative and fun, of all things. A big reason for the fun was that TV celebrity and businessman Donald Trump was on stage. He brought his normal Trump persona to the stage and was brash and occasionally funny. He started off strong, in his own way. But he followed up these flashes with some amazingly tone-deaf, illogical, stupid and bizarre statements. Here are 10 of the worst. 1) Didnt rule out a third-party run Bret Baier asked the candidates, Is there anyone on stage, and can I see hands, who is...

    Megyn Kelly demanded Trump apologize. Will Kelly ever demand the same from foul-mouthed anti-American leftist Rosie ODonnell? Here are a few of Rosies ugly attacks on Trump over the years. In one episode on The View Rosie attacked Miss USA, models, beauty pageants, and mocked Donald Trump all in the same segment. She also misrepresented his business record and lied about his wealth.

    Our culture sinks relentlessly into an abysmal preoccupation with gays, transsexuals, drug addicts, and other sundry oddities of life Seventeen GOP candidates for president of the United States paraded in front of us in Cleveland as elsewhere on August 6th. The establishment media crowed enthusiastically to the viewers about the import of this gathering to our lives as Americans. Chris Wallace and his fellow questioners milked the affair for all the drama they could squeeze from it. Unfortunately this two-tiered debate was just one more exercise in the miserable irrelevancy of the medias handling of political affairs in America today....
