    As the New Hampshire primary fast approaches, I wish to remind voters that our next commander-in-chief must be of the highest character, cut from the rare cloth of our founders. Sometimes God gives us great gifts in ugly packages. Recent attacks on Ted Cruz from both the Trump and Dr. Carson campaigns gifted Cruz an opportunity to show his character and presidential instincts.

    Hillary Clinton used misleading language in Thursday night's Democratic debate to describe the ongoing FBI investigation into her use of a private email server to conduct official government business while she was secretary of state, according to former senior FBI agents. In the New Hampshire debate with Senator Bernie Sanders, which aired on MSNBC, Clinton told moderator Chuck Todd that nothing would come of the FBI probe, "I am 100 percent confident.

    Following the Iowa caucuses, the gloves have clearly come off between Republican caucus victor Ted Cruz and runner-up Donald Trump. But of course Trump doesn't actually expect anyone to nullify Iowa's results. Continuing the tweetstorm, Trump also pointed to a much-criticized Cruz mailer mocked up to look like an official notice from election authorities and geared at shaming Iowans into voting for him. That poll found that Trump had an overwhelming national lead, 34 percent to second-place Cruz at 18 percent. 'I think some people were disappointed that I didn't go into the debate, ' Trump said.

They understand the system has morphed into a rigged fraud, and they understand that Sanders really, desperately wants to change it. As much as Idisagree with a lot of Sanders' solutions (his economic statism for example), he clearly despises the status quo, and for many of the right reasons.

    Conventional wisdom is congealing around two key factors in Trump’s loss this morning, so let me offer them to you as I think there’s merit to both. The main factor: Evangelicals came through for Cruz in the crunch. Political sites have been filled with news over the past few weeks about Trump’s surprising strength with born-again Christians, particularly given how intensely Cruz was courting those same voters. A guy who doesn’t know if he’s ever asked God’s forgiveness and who’s regularly demonstrated his unfamiliarity with Christian practices during this campaign shouldn’t be competitive with an evangelical candidate with dozens of...

That's higher than the returns for the last Republican debate, Jan. 14 on sister net Fox Business Network, and marks the No. 2 telecast in FNC history. Meanwhile, all the other cable news networks were covering Trump's competing event in Iowa, during which Trump boasted he raised $5 million for veteran's charities.

    The first Republican presidential debate of the season without front-runner Donald Trump generated smaller viewer interest than all but one of this cycle's prior GOP gatherings, according to preliminary Nielsen estimates — but still drew four times as many viewers as Trump's competing event. In the metered-market overnights, which represent 56 of the nation's largest markets, Fox News Channel's debate from Iowa averaged an 8.4 household rating. This is up vs. the 7.4 overnight rating for the most recent GOP debate, on Fox Business Network earlier this month, but it stands as the second lowest-rated of the six Republican gatherings...

The Trump at Drake's Sheslow Auditorium said not a word about the polls that are his ongoing obsession.

    Donald Trump counter-programmed Thursday's GOP primary debate on Fox with his own prime time event. So whose show scored a bigger audience? Answer: Fox's debate. But it was the second lowest rated debate of the season. So Trump is certain to take credit for hurting the channel's total viewership. Fox News Channel's Trump-less debate had an 8.4 household rating, according to early Nielsen data from so-called metered markets. This means 8.4% of American metered market homes with TV sets were watching the face-off. By comparison, two of the cable channels that showed parts of Trump's event, CNN and MSNBC, had...

    Trump taps the right's anger against Fox By Dylan Byers Des Moines, Iowa (CNN)For nearly two decades, Republican presidential candidates have run with Fox News. Now, Donald Trump is betting that he can run against it. Trump's six-month war with host Megyn Kelly, which turned nuclear when he pledged to skip the Fox News debate that she is co-moderating on Thursday, has exposed a significant shift in the political-media landscape: The growing divide between ultraconservatives and Roger Ailes' Manhattan-based network. Trump's attacks on the network -- like those he's made on Mexicans, Muslims, Sen. John McCain, and others -- are...

    If history holds true, the ranchers courageous enough to bring needed attention to land use rights being subverted by government regulation will be shackled, and the unjustifiable death of a good man will be overlooked Pathetic is the only word that could describe the skimmed over media treatment of the indiscriminate gunning down of a rancher in Oregon in favor of covering the non-news of Trump’s debate antics. A peaceful standoff in Harney County, Oregon, came to a violent end as a contingent of protesters were traveling to John Day, Oregon, to meet with the sheriff about resolving the Malheur...

    Hollow or not, Donald Trump's threat to boycott the final GOP forum before Iowa votes has complicated Ted Cruz's game plan, forcing the Texan to prepare for two different debates -- one in which he tangles directly with the front-runner and another that sets up the senator as the largest target on stage. With hours until debate time, Cruz's campaign still says it thinks Trump's pledge to skip the forum is a stunt. "Donald Trump will be at the debate," Cruz spokesman Rick Tyler Tyler predicted. "Mark my words."

    Tomorrow night, Republican front-runner Donald Trump might become the first presidential candidate ever to win a debate he didn't show up for. The other candidates will show up like they're supposed to, and they'll stand at their podiums answering questions. Some opinion writers will spin theories like, "Trump doesn't really want to win" or "This will be what finally does Trump in." Some anti-Trump Republicans will believe this is the other candidates' chance to shine. They'll talk about their first-month-in-office goals. They'll talk about their policies and tax plans. Nobody will mention that Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.) and Ohio Gov....
  • LIVE THREAD Donald Trump VETERANS Rally in Des Moines, Iowa Airing Jan 28 9:00pm EST on C-SPAN

    I’m not really sure what will happen tonight. I truly hope that Donald Trump will keep his word and follow through on his decision to not attend the debate and hold a separate forum in Des Moines, but who knows. For now, C-Span says they will cover it. Sometimes it’s best to walk away from a bad deal and not look back. It’s another opportunity for Trump to “teach us.” I guess we’ll see. Hopefully we won’t get whipsawed all day long and that the Des Moines rally is on and FR people here will participate. It seems pretty clear...
