    For some years now I have been endeavoring to instruct my readers on the difference between conservatives and "neo" conservatives. (If you remain confused please read this simple description.)I have Donald Trump to thank for making that distinction quite clear. The emergence of Trump as the presumptive nominee of the Republican Party has sent the neocons into a frenzy. Meanwhile we genuine conservatives consider him a huge improvement over the prior Republican presidential nominee.

    There’s a dark cloud hanging over the progressive push to turn America into a collectivist paradise. Things are so bad in socialist Venezuela, whose economy is cratering, that even the liberal news media have taken notice. Day after day, stories emerge from the oil-rich South American nation about power outages, bankruptcies, long lines for toilet paper, urban unrest, and now even food shortages. Millions of Venezuelans, no longer smitten by the kind of envy-laden appeals that Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton dish up on a daily basis, are having big-time buyers’ remorse since approving Hugo Chavez’s socialist uprising back in...

The official United States government conclusion is that Foster committed suicide by firing a revolver into his mouth with the bullet exiting the back of his head.

    Yes, Trump Can Win By Sean Trende May 31, 2016 Throughout this primary season, I’ve had an ongoing fight with a co-worker about whether Donald Trump could win the general election. I was pretty firmly in the “if the economy collapses, maybe, but he is much more likely to drag the entire Republican field down with him” camp. To resolve this, my co-worker invited me to set up some benchmarks: what we would have to see in order to believe that Trump really could win the election – not just that he had some sort of outside shot in a...

    Bernie Sanders’ appeal among young people has increasingly focused on delivering the supposed benefits a socialist society can give them; free education, free health care, and a government-mandated ‘living wage.’ But his vision for a socialist utopia flies in the face of reason – and the saddening saga of socialism in Europe. Sanders’ latest missive accusing Senator Mitch McConnell of denying pensions to coal miners in Kentucky, West Virginia and Pennsylvania typifies a fervent belief that the government can be a cure to all ills. The coal industry has been hit hard over recent years – in particular because of...

While she adhered pretty rigorously to her prepared remarks, sometimes she deviated from the script. “I wish I could spend a whole week with you,” she declared. “I love you all...

    One remarkable element of American politics is the extent to which unthinkable developments become commonplace once they happen. Consider simply the men who have become president by defying the conventional wisdom that said they could never reach that office, because they weren’t right for the times and the times weren’t right for them. They include Abraham Lincoln, considered a western bumpkin with only a single congressional term under his belt and no discernible sophistication about him. Or Ronald Reagan, considered a failed actor, a man whose detractors felt he was simply too dumb to be president. And let’s not forget...

    The Epoch Times ^ | May 30, 2016 | Associated Presstitutes
    Donald Trump trails Hillary Clinton by months, even years, in using fast-evolving digital campaigning to win over voters, data specialists working with the GOP say. The presumptive Republican presidential nominee has dismissed the science that defines 21st century political campaigns, a tool that President Barack Obama used effectively in winning two terms and the Clinton campaign has worked on for nearly a year. And while it is too early to tell whether the late start signals trouble for Trump, it illustrates the difference between Trump’s proudly outsider campaign and the institutional knowledge within Clinton’s.

But that’s not good enough for Beck. He wrote, “Can you have any credibility when you said one thing on the campaign trail and then the opposite after. Were you lying to us then or now Marco?”

And they’ve taught me some basic rules that I keep seeing violated. First, at a certain point you have to stop reporting about the race for a party’s nomination as if it’s mainly about narrative and “momentum.” That may be true at an early stage, when candidates are competing for credibility and dollars. Eventually, however, it all becomes a simple, concrete matter of delegate counts....

    It's no surprise Democrat Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is an advocate of socialism. He's openly advocated for socialist policies on the 2016 campaign trail and back in the 1980s, Sanders argued bread lines are a sign of economic progress. "You know, it's funny. Sometimes American journalists talk about how bad a country is when people are lining up for food. That's a good thing. In other countries, people don't line up for food. The rich get the food and the poor starve to death," Sanders lamented at the time. But now that Venezuelan socialism is leading to the downfall of...

    Right-thinking Americans will be relieved to know that conservatives in the House joined the Democrat minority to kill the entire Water and Energy appropriations bill rather than allow it to pass with Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney’s transgender amendment attached to it. However, here are the 43 Republicans who voted in favor of this dastardly amendment… Remember their names. According to the American Family Association: “The amendment would legitimize President Barack Obama’s radical agenda to punish those who don’t follow his pro-LGBT agenda. “This amendment requires the federal government to follow Obama’s executive order 13672. This executive order instructs the federal...

    Earlier this year, as that unmistakable bass line of the Pretenders’ My City Was Gone faded into the background, Rush Limbaugh opened his daily three-hour broadcast with characteristic bombast. “[According to the] latest research data,” he intoned, “the audience is expanding at near geometric proportions, as people seek guidance, answers, explanations, information, and an answer to the basic question, ‘What the hell is happening out there?’" ... And yet, there are signs that all is not well in the Limbaugh radio empire. Because even as his influence is sky high and his dominance at the top of talk radio remains...

    EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Vice President Joe Biden said Rhode Island needs to invest in its transportation infrastructure after touring a dilapidated highway bridge he joked is being held up by a children's toy. "For 10 years, you've had Lincoln Logs holding the damn thing up. Go look at it," he told a crowd of local politicians and construction trade and labor leaders who gathered Friday to hear him speak.

    PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, May 30, CMC – Former attorney general Ramesh Lawrence Maharaj has called on the Keith Rowley administration to set up a three-member task force to investigate the construction of a multi-billion dollar highway that has since come to a halt when the former People’s Partnership government was defeated in the September 7 general elections last year. Maharah, who is also advocating for a Commission of Inquiry into the matter, told a news conference on Sunday that the government had an obligation to determine how the TT$7.5 billion (One TT dollar=US$0.16 cents) funds were spent on the...

    Sunday on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS,” The Wall Street Journal’s deputy editorial page editor Bret Stephens argued against presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s candidacy and said he must be “decisively rebuked” to the point that it will teach Republican voters a “lesson.” “I most certainly will not vote for Donald Trump,” Stephens said. “I will vote for the least left-wing opponent to Donald Trump and I want to make a vote to make sure that he has — that he is the biggest loser in presidential history since, I don’t know, Alf Landon or

    The first Jewish candidate to get to the homestretch of a Democratic presidential primary is making it his business to move the party formally away from its support of Israel. At least to the degree that President Obama hasn’t already done so. Senator Sanders’ nominees to the Democratic Party’s platform committee include radical environmentalist, Bill McKibben; Native American activist, Deborah Parker; and muslim congressman Keith Ellison of Minnsota. The big news, though, is that Mr. Sanders’ surrogates include pro-Palestinian activist James Zogby and leftist professor Cornel West, two of the harshest critics of Israel on the national scene. It’s not...

    On Wednesday, 43 Republican members of Congress joined the Democrats to vote for President Barack Obama’s transgender agenda. Now they’re trying to spin their vote. These 43 Republicans voted for the Maloney amendment, which ratified Obama’s 2014 executive order barring private businesses who do contract work for the government from engaging in what the government considers to be “discrimination” on the basis of “sexual orientation and gender identity” in their private employment policies. As I pointed out in an earlier Daily Signal article, “discrimination” on the basis of “gender identity” can be something as simple as having a bathroom policy...

    America got the contested convention it desired this weekend … from the Libertarians, anyway. Gary Johnson and William Weld managed to eke out majorities of delegates this weekend to become the only national party ticket with two former two-term governors on it, and both of them Republicans for that matter. Now that the circus has packed up, though, can the Libertarians compete for the first time, with both of the major parties nominating candidates with record unpopularity with voters? Politico reports that they will at least compete on funding, if nothing else. One big boost will come from the super-PAC...
