    Trump promises info on veterans fundraiser By Ben Schreckinger | 05/29/16 03:02 PM EDT Donald Trump will hold a news conference on Tuesday to unveil a full list of groups that received donations from a veterans fundraiser held in January, the businessman announced on Sunday. "We're announcing on Tuesday all of the groups that've gotten the money," Trump said during remarks at a motorcycle rally in front of the Lincoln Memorial. "We're having a big press conference and it's going to be a great day." The fundraiser has become a subject of controversy as journalists have been unable to account...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    When Donald Trump collected a few unbound delegates last week, surpassing the 1,237 needed to clinch the Republican nomination for president, expectations that the national convention could be the most dramatic in modern times evaporated. “Now, it will be the most entertaining,” said Randy Evans, a party-wise man from Georgia, with a nod to the reality TV star’s promise to “put some show biz” into the July convention in Cleveland. But there remains an important, unscripted drama yet to unfold in the tempestuous relationship between Trump and his chief rival, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas. Although Trump will arrive...

    How Hillary Loses Donald Trump can actually win if Clinton makes these four mistakes. Spoiler alert: She’s already making all of them. (Full Title) It’s a terrifying moment for Democrats: Hillary Clinton’s double-digit lead in national polls has evaporated and panic is beginning to set in. Polls now show Donald Trump ahead of Clinton, or at worst only a few points behind. During the insanity of the Republican primary, it was easy for them to believe that Trump could never be president—that in a general election, mainstream voters would regard him as an absurdity. But Clinton remains a shaky candidate...

Stephens has been one of Trump's most outspoken conservative critics, writing in March, for instance, that Trump is essentially an amplified version of Barack Obama. Both men were "epic narcissists who see themselves as singularly suited to redeem an America that is not only imperfect but fundamentally broken," he wrote. "The candidacy of Donald Trump...

They also carefully monitored the economy’s progress so as to avoid any backsliding into normalcy. And where do we get this penetrating appraisal? From the Fed economists themselves, of course.

Trump avariciously acquires property because he's a "small, insecure money-grabber," as Fauxcahontas called him this week. On the other hand, she and her husband are humanitarians, "fortunate to be in a position where they have been able to help relatives buy their homes ... to support their efforts to make a living."

    Per Twitter "Just a heads up over this holiday weekend: There will be an independent candidate--an impressive one, with a strong team and a real chance." -Bill Kristol Who is it, Mittens? This absolutely disgusts me. This fool is going to cost us the election because he and some bitter Cruz supporters didn't get their way. He knows it will split the vote and we won't win. A few things: 1)He wants to cause enough of a vote split where no candidate has the 270. Ok. Let's say he does that. He will literally be usurping the will of all...

    Libertarians on Sunday selected former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson as their party's presidential nominee, at their party convention in Orlando, Florida. "At a minimum, I think we're in the presidential debates," Johnson said to cheers. Sarwark said the party had established a "back channel" to the Koch brothers, in the hopes the wealthy libertarian-leaning funders donate to the Libertarian Party. Sarwark also said he had been speaking to Matt Kibbe, former president of conservative advocacy group Freedomworks, about supporting the party's nominee. Johnson received almost 1 percent of the general election vote in 2012 A recent national poll had...

    Progressives and others on the radical Left are not very intelligent people. This is something we should be very thankful for, because were they actually competent, they would have completely overwhelmed the spineless, feckless Republican Party and established total control decades ago. As it stands, because progressives in the United States have so little foresight and self-control, they end up damaging their own cause through their own foolish behavior and inability to moderate themselves for the sake of more broadly appealing to the masses. This was shown most recently in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where a crowd of left-wing hooligans –...

    These Trump protesters in San Diego had no problem yelling vulgarities at a young mom and her child. Until Dad intervened. Is he perpetuating the patriarchy? Let’s hope so. After the father intervened to get the plug uglies away from his wife and child, the vulgarian can be heard whining, “Help me.”

    On May 26, the Chicago Tribune published an editorial in which it claimed the NRA is exaggerating Hillary Clinton’s threat to gun rights. Focusing on the Supreme Court, the Tribune claimed there is no guarantee that Republicans would confirm Clinton’s appointees to the highest court, and even if they did, there is no guarantee those justices would revisit landmark decisions like District of Columbia v. Heller (2008) or McDonald v. Chicago (2010).
