    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) predicted victory in the New Hampshire primary tomorrow, setting expectations high for his campaign. At a rally in Nashua this evening, Marco Rubio had this to say as he wrapped up his speech in New Hampshire: “Get up early tomorrow and vote … because we’re going to do as well as we possibly can. I believe it’s going to lead to victory not just in this primary, but I believe it’s going to lead to victory in November.” Rubio arrived at 6:45 for the 6:30 rally but immediately set up for a Fox News interview, using...

    Boston Globe ^ | 1/15/2016 | MICHAEL A. COHEN
    Ever since Donald Trump entered the Republican presidential race, I've been a Trump-skeptic. I understood his appeal. I got why angry and alienated Republican rank-and-file voters have glommed onto his campaign. And I could even sketch out a scenario in which Trump could win. Yet, even as his poll numbers rose and he seemed immune from the political pitfalls that usually fell first-time candidates, I couldn't quite buy the notion that Trump, former reality star and full-time blowhard, could be the Republican nominee for president. It all just seemed too far-fetched. Surely, at some point Trump would implode. Those doubts...

    These days, people on the Right seem to be polarized: Either they think Donald Trump is a brilliant, unstoppable ball of winning or they believe he's the classiest, most luxurious demagogue to come along in decades. I have a bit of a different take. I've read and enjoyed Donald Trump's books, he was nothing but gracious to me when we met, I have friends I like and respect a great deal who work for him and I even used a picture of the two of us together on the Christmas cards I sent out this year. Moreover, Trump's willingness to...

    Jeb's dead. At least, that's the conventional wisdom, and has been for a few months. The man who would be America's third President Bush in as many decades never quite had a good night in the Republican debates. His polls numbers have continued to stagnate, and in some cases, plummet. Bush's initial blitz may have scared away Mitt Romney, but nobody else is frightened of him. Donald Trump calls him a "nice guy" in a way that seems designed to torture him. We haven't even gotten to Bush's heresies on immigration and education policy - that's how secure his rivals...

He showed a clear command of the things he would face as commander in chief, speaking confidently and sounding much like a candidate who expects to sit in the Oval Office a little more than a year from now. He even said at one point, “I want a guy (in office) who understands the issues.” That was a clear slap at Donald...

    Obama did not grow up in a religious household and became a practicing Christian as an adult. He has written more extensively about his spiritual awakening than almost any other modern president, addressing it in two books before he was elected to the White House and in more than a dozen speeches since. His faith had been central to his identity as a new kind of Democrat who would bring civility to the country's political debates by appealing to Republicans through the shared language of their Judeo-Christian values. With just one year left in his second term, Obama now holds...

The former Florida governor, whose last election campaign was in 2002, had looked rusty and hesitant in all his previous outings. On Tuesday night he made a far crisper and more assertive showing. Bush delivered the most memorable line of the debate's early stages when he said Trump was "a chaos candidate. And he'd be a chaos president." In a later exchange, he told the businessman, "You're not going to be able to insult your way to the presidency," a phrase...

    President Barack Obama says his administration will continue releasing terrorists from the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, so long as those released are less dangerous than the jihadists currently fighting against the U.S. and its interests. The bizarre argument comes in a new interview with Olivier Knox of Yahoo! News and is one of several comments in their discussion that reinforces the president's stubborn nonchalance on issues related to jihad. Obama also shrugs off concerns about recidivism of former Guantanamo detainees, suggesting that only a "handful" of former detainees have returned to the fight and claiming that only "low-level"...

According to Jan Marijnissen, the conflict between Israel and the Palestinian Arabs somehow ignited the attack on French civilians at cafes, show venues, soccer stadiums and restaurants. "Their behavior eventually is connected also to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict," claimed Marijnissen in an interview with the Dutch NPO Radio1 on Monday. ...

Let’s look at the two state Senate races where the issue played a central role: Senate District 10 in the Richmond area and Senate District 29 in Prince William County. In both races, gun safety was either the winning factor or helped tighten a race in a previously non-competitive GOP-held district. First, polling in and outside of Virginia shows more than 85 percent of Americans support common-sense firearms-violence prevention rules such as universal background checks or keeping firearms out of the hands...

Still, consider these: The white percentage of the electorate has been shrinking for decades and will be about two points smaller in 2016 than in 2012. In 2008,...

    President Barack Obama responded to a stinging defeat dealt by his own party by declaring victory.

The White House chose to highlight the fact that one part of the package passed, even though two approvals were necessary to give Obama the trade authority he needs to negotiate the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership.

The report comes just one month ahead of the June 30 deadline set for the P5+1 powers and Iran to finalize a deal over Tehran's nuclear program. News that Iran has been busily expanding its stockpiles contradicts claims by US President Barack Obama that the Islamic Republic had "frozen" its nuclear program during the last year and a half of negotiations.

    On Fox Business Networks Wednesday broadcast of Cavuto Coast to Coast, Rep. Luis Gutirrez (D-IL) disputed the possibility that the courts may strike down President Barack Obamas so-called executive amnesty. Gutirrez argued to host Neil Cavuto that despite the U.S. Fifth Circuit of Appeals injunction preventing the Obama administration from implementing the action as the courts determine whether or not the executive action is constitutional. However, in the midst of that argument, Gutirrez also predicted that next years election night will be short because in the end Republicans will lose. OK, I wont try to out-yell you, Neil, Gutirrez said....

    Monday while President Barack Obama was answering questions at a town hall with YSEALI Fellows, an exchange program for community leaders from ASEAN, The Association of Southeast Asian Nations, he said his administration has restored the Untied States as the the most respected country on earth. Obama said, People dont remember, but when I came into office, the Untied States in world opinion ranked below China and just barley above Russia, and today once again, the Untied States is the most respected country on earth. Part of that I think is because of the work we did to reengage the...

    This, at its most basic level, is disgusting and reprehensible.We know how far America and the Left in particular have strayed from religion. Its really sad, and if the trend continues, will ultimately lead to our demise.Ask yourself, why is radical Islam so strong at the moment? The answer: religion.No matter how muchradical Islamists have distorted the Quran, religion remains a main tenetof their teachings. In the U.S. today, you cant turn on a TV show anymore without seeing at least one homosexual character, no doubt because Hollywood liberals want you to believe that out of every 10...

    [ .... " Bayh, though, suggested the friction now could give way to better times soon for Democrats. I do think with a new president, potentially new leaders, certainly for Democrats in the Senate --who knows about the House -- there may be a season for governing where people might actually find more common ground,starting all over with a blank sheet of paper, Bayh said. That would be a good thing for the country.

    The letter below from Rep. Ral M. Grijalva of Arizona speaks to the worst sort of witch hunt tactics that weve seen yet. I suspect that pulling on these threads will backfire on Grijalva, as this will motivate a lot of people to join the fight against this sort of climate McCarthyism The letter is reproduced in full below, with the original PDF also available. Its like hes got Manns #kochmachine delusions ideas.

    On CNN today, host Carol Costello was discussing the President's summit on extremism and made the startling comment. Citing a DHS report, Costello claims that authorities are concerned about "right wing citizens extremists". She goes on to add that they might be more dangerous than foreign groups. She begins by echoing one of the Obama administration's frequent moral equivalencytalking points, that terror is neither unique to Islam, nor is Islam necessarily the worst offender, and then takes off from there. "ISIS isn't the only threat for Americans. According to an intelligence report by the Department of Homeland Security, authorities are...

    Jeb Bush made a series of astonishing remarks about immigration Wednesday. Actually, his comments were not so much about immigration as they were about illegal aliens. First he said he wanted to repopulate Detroit with illegal aliens. It just seems to me that maybe if you open up our doors in a fair way and unleashed the spirit of peoples' hard work, Detroit could become in really short order, one of the great American cities again," Bush said then. "Now it would look different, it wouldn't be Polish...But it would be just as powerful, just as exciting, just as dynamic....

    The Senate Democrats' wounded leader is desperate to show that he's still in charge. Harry Reid doesnt particularly like long phone calls. He is known to abruptly hang up after a quick conversation with an aide, a senator or a lobbyist.But in the aftermath of a grisly New Years Day exercise accident, which gave him four broken ribs and may leave him permanently blind in one eye, the 75-year-old Nevada Democrat has been burning up the phones with up to 50 calls per day, trying to make clear that hes still in charge.

    resident Obama sure is consistent. His State of the Union address sounded like his other speeches: What I've done is great! America is in a much better position. We've created a manufacturing sector that's adding jobs. More oil is produced at home. I cut deficits in half! Give me a break. The deficit is lower now not because of any prudence on Obama's part but merely because the $800 billion stimulus spending blowout didn't continue. All the president does is increase spending: free community college, free Obamaphones, free birth control, etc. Yes, our annual deficit is lower, but it's still...
