  • First Daughter Ivanka Trump Instagrams Her Election Day 2016 Photos

    Wednesday, Nov. 8 marks the one-year anniversary of the 2016 election. On that day, voters took to the polls to vote for their next president, and the majority picked Hillary Clinton. But because of the Electoral College, Donald Trump won in a huge shock. Well, first daughter Ivanka Trump shared some Election Day photos on Instagram this Nov. 8 to recount how she, her family, and the Trump campaign spent that historic day. (Although, technically speaking, Donald Trump was not announced as the winner of the election until Nov. 9, and yes, I'll nitpick.) In case you've blocked the day...
  • Diving into the Numbers with Essex County, NJ Clerk Chris Durkin

    Insider NJ ^ | November 7, 2017 | Edward Edwards
    Essex County Clerk Chris Durkin looked across the city of Newark on election Day and told InsiderNJ that he sees “brisk turnout” in the county with the largest raw rolls of Democratic voters among all counties. Durkin said he believes this gubernatorial election will likely reflect the largest numbers in recent gubernatorial election history. Reports out of Maplewood and Montclair reflect solid numbers. ” I see it bigger than all those elections,” Durkin said. “I think we could see the highest turnout for governor in the last 40 years in Essex, but it won’t show by percentage.” That’s because in...

    "The trip began a day before the election, and Mr. Kerry had confidently predicted a Hillary Clinton victory." Ah! It was the best of times, it was the best of times. Not a hint that anything could possibly ruin the upbeat mood of what was essentially an Election Day victory lap by Secretary of State John Kerry and his merry band of liberals to the bottom of the world. Fortunately, for the eternal amusement of posterity, New York Times science reporter Justin Gillis was on hand to record the tragicomic scene. First let us begin as he notes the jubilant visitors touring Antarctica...

    -excerpt- November 8 will be a paid holiday for workers at General Motors, Ford Motor Company, Square, Hearst Publishing, Patagonia, mattress company Casper and digital media company Thrillist. While there is no federal law requiring workers get time off to vote, state laws vary on what’s required. For instance, some offer paid leave for a set amount of time to vote. Others offer unpaid leave and some require workers give adequate notice before taking leave to vote.

  • So the Hillary Indictment Will Have to Come From Us

    It was quite the spectacle, and quite the damning litany of charges against Hillary Clinton. And after sharing them for several minutes, formerly respected FBI Director James Comey told us that “no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.” I am familiar with several reasonable prosecutors who would have been glad to do it if the lifting is a little too heavy for Comey, who started his remarks as a straight-arrow law-and-order figure and a quarter-hour later earned his card in the Hillary Clinton protection racket. To be clear, since the FBI Director seems a little fuzzy: Hillary Clinton knowingly...
  • Hopes rise for Trump rivals as South Carolina votes

    The Hill ^ | February 20, 2016 | Niall Stanage
    COLUMBIA, S.C. - Late-deciding voters may be moving away from Donald Trump and toward rivals Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio as South Carolina Republicans prepare to cast their ballots in Saturday's primary. Two new polls show a sharp drop in the business mogul's once-comfortable lead, while his rivals have endorsements and traditional organizing power on their side. It may not be enough. Almost all observers expect Trump to prevail in the end. But a narrow margin of victory would raise questions about his long-term prospects in the race. And a stronger-than-expected showing from either Cruz or Rubio could give their...
  • Blue State Leftists Destroying Red States?

    Occasionally an analysis so turns your head that you have to do your own investigation to determine whether that analysis makes any sense. When it comes from the New York Times (the daily bible of the Left), one needs to take an extra hard look. Before the mid-term election two Times reporters asserted that blue-state voters are moving to red states and making them purple. Robert Gebeloff and David Leonhardt of the Times took a look at the people flooding out of blue states and moving to red states. They assert that this population flow has been going on for...
  • Two Hidden Factors in the 2014 Campaign

    11/11/2014 9:15:33 AM PST · by Kaslin · 33 replies ^ | November 11, 2014 | Michael Barone
    Looking back on the 2014 election cycle, I see two largely unnoticed turning points that worked against Democrats and in Republicans' favor. The first came in response to the October 2013 government shutdown. This was blamed, as shutdowns usually are, on Republicans, partly because of their skepticism about big government, and partly because media professionals tend to fault the GOP in any partisan fight. The shutdown occurred because about 40 Republican House members refused to support a continuing resolution funding the government without a proviso defunding Obamacare. Texas freshman Sen. Ted Cruz had been barnstorming the country arguing that this...

    It’s Election Day on Tuesday. (Not a Calvinist holiday. People are voting in booths…) A lot of pro-life advocates are fed up with politics, especially in a state like California where it seems like the pro-life vote doesn’t matter. I have a lot of empathy with people who feel apathetic about the entire political process, but I want to offer a few reasons to stay involved. voteprolife26I spoke at a pro-life conference in Southern California recently put on by California Pro-Life Council, and Bryan Johnston asked me to spend the last part of my speech encouraging the attendees to stay...

    For six years the Democratic majority in the Senate has formed a solid bloc behind a president who betrayed every American soldier who died in Iraq by deliberately losing the war and failing to secure the peace. Obama’s anti-military, anti-American zeal has brought this country to its knees internationally.

    At a July fundraising event in Chicago, Mrs. Michelle Obama remarked, "So, yeah, there's too much money in politics. There's (sic) special interests that have too much influence." Sen. John McCain has been complaining for years that "there is too much money washing around political campaigns today." According to a 2012 Reuters poll, "Seventy-five percent of Americans feel there is too much money in politics." Let's think about money in politics, but first a few facts. During the 2012 presidential campaign, Barack Obama raised a little over $1 billion, while Mitt Romney raised a little under $1 billion. Congressional candidates...

    The Last Psychiatrist ^ | November 10, 2012
    "In the John Waters-esque sector of northwest Baltimore -- equal parts kitschy, sketchy, artsy and weird -- Gerry Mak and Sarah Magida sauntered through a small ethnic market stocked with Japanese eggplant, mint chutney and fresh turmeric. After gathering ingredients for that evening's dinner, they walked to the cash register and awaited their moments of truth." Those are two "hipsters", and the punchline is that they pay for their foodie porn with foodie stamps, which sounds like it should be a terrible thing, except it's in, which means they're going to try and tell you how it's a good...

    In his new book—The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic—nationally syndicated radio host Mark Levin, who served as chief of staff in the Reagan Justice Department, argues that the Constitution should be amended to put tax day and election day back to back. “I would move tax day to the day before election day,” Levin said in an interview on’s Online With Terry Jeffrey. “I think this is very important, because if you’ll notice, election day and tax day are about as far apart as they can get, like seven months apart,” said Levin. “So we’re voting on the...
  • The Battle Of Athens Or How Common Citizens Removed A Corrupt Government From Their County.

    Wake Up America ^ | May 20, 2013
    The Battle of Athens (sometimes called the McMinn County War) was a rebellion led by citizens in Athens and Etowah, Tennessee, United States, against the local government in August 1946. The citizens, including some World War II veterans, accused the local officials of political corruption and voter intimidation. Here is what happened: Following World War II in 1946, violence erupted when returning American soldiers discovered their Tennessee county had been taken over by political corruption. Their plan to take it back involved bullets—lots of bullets—and dynamite. Why Athens in McMinn County, Tennessee became a battleground was due to Paul Cantrell,...

    Are you ready to make a difference this Election Day? This Presidential Election is the most important in our lifetime. For conservative states like Texas and Tennessee, our work is complete in our own states. We won the US Senate race and many state legislative and down-ballot county races. Now, for November, the majority of races in Texas don’t have competitive or serious Democratic challengers in the General Election. We’ve worked hard and experienced many victories. So what do activists do now? How do we utilize our passion and experience to impact votes in the November General Election? Answer:...
