    Illinois Democratic Senate candidate Rep. Tammy Duckworth said on Monday that politicians are contributing to the rise of Islamic terrorists in the United States by calling for stricter immigration laws. Duckworth singled out her Republican opponent, Sen. Mark Kirk, and presidential candidate Donald Trump, as two politicians who are allegedly “play[ing] right into ISIS’s hands” and aiding the radicalization of Muslims in the United States during an interview with the Chicago Tribune editorial board. Duckworth made the comments while discussing two Iraqi refugees in Texas and California who were recently arrested on terror related charges. “In the case of those...

    "This has gotten way out of hand." So goes the oft-repeated refrain from top-tier DNC bosses to rank and file operatives who are all now scrambling to try and figure out what is an increasingly serious Bernie Sanders dilemma. The Sanders' dynamic playing out within the Democrat Party is in fact a far greater and more important story than the Donald Trump vs GOP Establishment meme that the Mainstream Media has put on a repeating loop for the last several months. As combative and boisterous as Trump can be, his views represent a significant wing of BOTH the Republican and...

Democrats have never released actual head counts in Iowa caucuses, and McGuire flatly said they would not be released this time either. On Thursday, the Register published an editorial headlined, "Something smells in the Democratic Party," denouncing state party officials for refusing to agree to an audit or release details of the voting. "What happened Monday night at the Democratic caucuses was a debacle, period," the Register wrote. "Democracy, particularly at...

The prior low was 7.8 million viewers for ABC's Democratic debate on the Saturday night before Christmas. [Snip] Thursday's two-hour session, moderated by Maddow and Chuck Todd, represented the first time Clinton and Sanders sparred head-to-head, without Martin O'Malley on stage with them. Some Twitter critics said it was the best debate of the election cycle thus far, burnishing the brands of Todd and Maddow.

In the case of ethanol they have made it mandatory in cars, even though it is proven that it does not reduce oil usage, because oil is needed for the production of ethanol. That it hurts engines. The most damaging thing that ethanol does, according to Levin is add...

    We've got an unpopular set of presidential candidates this year - Bernie Sanders is the only candidate in either party with a net-positive favorability rating - but Trump is the most unpopular of all. His favorability rating is 33 percent, as compared with an unfavorable rating of 58 percent, for a net rating of -25 percentage points. By comparison Hillary Clinton, whose favorability ratings are notoriously poor, has a 42 percent favorable rating against a 50 percent unfavorable rating, for a net of -8 points. Those are bad numbers, but nowhere near as bad as Trump's. This is not just...

The pair made a formidable team and did heavy lifting to ensure that Obama was elected in 2008 and that much of his agenda — including Obamacare — was put in place.

    When people find out I am a political reporter, they usually have only one question for me: "Donald Trump can't really win this thing, can he?" My answer is always the same these days: Absolutely he can. The reason is simple: Trump is the national front-runner, yes, but he is also ahead in a two key early states -- New Hampshire and South Carolina -- and a strong second in Iowa, the state that kicks the whole presidential process off on Feb. 1. Could he totally collapse from that position? Sure. As we know from recent history, voters in Iowa...

    Donald Trump intensified his criticism of Ted Cruz at two Iowa campaign rallies on Saturday, urging voters to reject the Texas senator by saying his Canadian birth raises serious questions about his eligibility to become president. "He was born in Canada. I guess his parents voted in Canada," Trump said at an afternoon rally in Clear Lake. "So if you were born in Canada, immediately it's a little bit of a problem." Trump added: "You cannot put somebody there that's gonna go in ... he's going to be immediately sued." Earlier Saturday, Trump said at a rally in Ottumwa that...

    NORFOLK City Treasurer and former Vice Mayor Anthony Burfoot was arrested Friday on federal political corruption charges alleging he accepted almost a half-million dollars in kickbacks while serving on the City Council. Burfoot, who was elected treasurer in November 2013 after serving on the council for more than a decade, is accused of using his influence on the council to funnel work and favors to local businessmen. He appeared in U.S. District Court on Friday afternoon wearing a light gray suit, his customary bow tie removed by federal agents as a security precaution. Burfoot was escorted into the courtroom in...

    Politics: The trouble that Hillary Clinton had distinguishing a Democrat from a socialist during an MSNBC interview was understandable. It´s like describing the difference between a dog and a canine. At the tail end of a series of beach-ball-soft questions, "Hardball" host Chris Matthews asked Clinton: "Now, Bernie (Sanders) calls himself a socialist. ... You´re a Democrat. ... What´s the difference between a socialist and a Democrat?" Clinton: "Well, I can tell you what I am. I am a progressive Democrat." Matthews: "How is that different than a socialist?" Clinton: Hamana, hamana, mumble, mumble, "we have got to get all...

    Gosh. Why is this question so hard to answer? You may recall that, a few months ago, Chris Matthews made waves by asking DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz a very simple question: “What’s the difference between a Democrat and a Socialist? After all, Bernie Sanders is a proud socialist and Dems like to claim that label doesn’t apply to them. Wasserman Schultz, unsurprisingly, couldn’t answer the question. Apparently she found it difficult to outline a difference where none exists.
  • Democrat resolution seeks to curb hate-speech wave ... and admits it's fictional

    House Democrats have moved to clamp down on a wave of anti-Muslim sentiment and crime in the United States that they concede — in the very text of their own resolution — does not actually exist. ......... Apart from the obvious dangers of U.S. lawmakers moving to demonize Americans for the things they say, the resolution goes on to confusingly cancel itself out in terms of simple logic. After declaring the importance of Muslims to the U.S. culture and economy, and that “hate speech” goes against “the Nation’s founding principles,” and that women in hijabs and headscarves are being “targeted,”...

    Media gleefully reporting al-Shabab video with Trump, IGNORES Hillary and ‘Black Lives Matter’ are in it TOO!! El Trumpo is finally being used in a terrorist training video and the media couldn’t be more happy.

    That’s odd. What could Democrats possibly see in a lifelong true conservative like Donald Trump? There’s something for everyone in Nate Cohn’s new post. If you’re a Trump fan, here’s the smoking gun that he really is a new Reagan, the guy who’s going to broaden the tent and sweep to victory in November by bringing centrist Democrats into the GOP. If you’re a Trump critic, here’s further proof that he’s the RINO of RINOs, a man who’s blended nationalism, center-left economics, and Jacksonian foreign policy into something that tastes better to members of the other party than it does...
