    Jeb Bush in 2020, anyone? Sources close to Jeb Bush’s failed run at the 2016 presidency say the “low-energy” candidate has been back in touch with supporters. They believe he’s popping up to “feel them out” for another run and, according to at least one big contributor, they're in! “Bush has been quietly making telephone calls to his supporters, bundlers and donors, to talk about the state of the county and the economy, and the energy business, why would he do that?” asks one insider, who concludes “he's running in four years.” Before he was trounced by Donald Trump, Bush...

Police that the officer was patrolling the area of North and Orange when he came upon a crowd of vehicles and bystanders near the intersection of Orange and North. The CHP officer then saw a white Chevy Tahoe doing donuts and driving recklessly in the intersection. The CHP officer attempted to stop the Tahoe .

    Ted Cruz’s endorsement of Trump was the courageous right move both for Cruz’s brand and for the country. But let me digress… I participated in the Cruz for President campaign from its beginning, initially as a videographer, shooting hours of footage of Cruz and interviews with his family that was used throughout the campaign. I attended the Cruz for President branding conference, along with about 15 others, where we contributed ideas to help formulate the campaign’s marketing strategy. I settled into a role as a media advisor and writer for the campaign, submitting promotional ideas, op-eds, and written material for...

    After voting to proceed to a bill that didn’t exist earlier this week, the Senate has finally produced text of the continuing resolution, a short-term government spending bill. The bill, written behind closed doors by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, was brought to the floor late Thursday afternoon, and for the majority of Senate Republicans, represented their first opportunity to see the text. According to McConnell, senators will have four days (two of them on a weekend) to review the bill before having to cast their votes next week. As far as conservative priorities go, the bill is a failure....

    PITTSBURGH—“Running for president is a very important endeavor,” Donald Trump said. “What is more important, right?” He leaned forward on his chair, separated by a heavy black curtain in a makeshift green room from the crowd waiting to hear him speak at the Shale Insight Conference. “I am running because, number one, I think I will do a very good job. Number two, it’s really about making American great again.” He paused, as if realizing that repeating his campaign slogan might not seem genuine. “I mean that; I really do want to make America great again,” he said. “That is...

    Video Credit: YouTube California Republican Rep. Tom McClintock started a Congressional hearing by reading a Washington Post article detailing the impacts of global warming on the Arctic ecosystem. He read: “The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and some place the seals are finding the water too hot.” He then asked Obama's top climate adviser Christy Goldfuss, "Is this the crisis you're referring to?", referring to new guidance her council issued on accounting for global warming impacts. Goldfuss said, "It's a crisis we're trying to address...I'm not familiar with that report." Then McClintock nailed her saying, "Perhaps...

    Republican support for Donald Trump is at an all-time high, with GOP voters now just as unified behind Trump as Democrats are behind Hillary Clinton, according to the HuffPost Pollster polling average. Polls have shown a tightening race in recent weeks, leaving Democrats on edge and concerned that Clinton is losing the comfortable lead she held over the summer. There’s data to back up Democrats’ hand-wringing. Republican voters who had previously withheld their support for Trump have come around recently. Trump has managed to gain 6 percentage points among Republicans since mid-August, and he’s on an upward trend, according to...

When he first entered the House in 2006 the talk was of the big things the Republican majority was going to accomplish. Then he attended a GOP House conference meeting and found leadership worried. They explained that yes, the plan was to do big things. But there was “a small chance” Republicans might lose the majority. So to play it safe, the leadership wants to do small...

    A pro-immigration enforcement group is calling on Congress to block President Barack Obama's latest effort to bring more Islamic refugees into the United States. Ira Mehlman of the Federation for American Immigration Reform, or FAIR, says Obama's own security people have admitted there is no way to vet the refugees for affiliation to radical Islamic groups such as ISIS. Yet the administration has announced it's raising the number of refugees that will be permitted into the U.S. to 110,000 during the coming fiscal year, which begins October 1. That's a 30-percent increase from the 85,000 permitted during the current year.

    House Republicans reached an agreement late Wednesday to avoid a potentially divisive floor vote on impeaching IRS Commissioner John Koskinen. The deal scraps the vote on the so-called "privileged" impeachment resolution that had been expected to take place Thursday. Instead, the House Judiciary Committee will consider Koskinen's impeachment, with the IRS boss expected to testify sometime next week. The agreement makes it unlikely that any vote by the full House to impeach Koskinen will happen until after the November election, if at all. House Republican leadership had balked on moving forward on impeachment proceedings during an election season, arguing that...

But if the Koch brothers have lost the battle for conservative values in 2016, they are also quietly preparing for a long war. Their secret weapon is the Grassroots Leadership Academy: a training program dreamed up by the Americans for Prosperity Foundation, the political education arm of the Koch network, and intended to groom the next generation of conservative activists to shape the...

America cannot continue to be the dumping ground for all the world’s problems, was what the Republican candidate for president implied in his address in Phoenix, Ariz., last night. The truth is, the central issue is not the needs of the 11 million illegal immigrants or however many there may be … but whatever the number, that's never really been the central issue. It will never be a...

    Fresh after Congress and the White House scored the largest transportation spending package in a decade, both presidential candidates this year are proposing billions in funding to rebuild the nation’s infrastructure. While both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump—and the parties they represent—agree the nation’s roads, bridges, airports, rail system, and ports are in need of repair, the new proposals invite familiar questions over how the spending would be paid for, and whether the federal government is the best provider to pay for it. Those questions, and the lack of a must-pass infrastructure initiative requiring Congress’ attention in 2017, mean that...

    After Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump launched into his pitch for black America, several outlets reported the black community taking offense, though the majority of what the media found offensive in Trump’s speeches has been explicitly highlighted in the Black Lives Matter movement. The Black Lives Matter website featured an op-ed in Fall 2015 titled “11 Major Misconceptions About the Black Lives Matter Movement,” that sought to clear up misconceptions. The op-ed pointed to the exactly same issues Trump covered in his speech. “But black people are disproportionately poorer, more likely to be targeted by police and arrested, and more...

Cosmo and the Huffington Post, to their credit, mentioned Lim's employer: the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

The suggested deal rests on the assumption that Clinton is “on a glide path to the White House,” and that Republicans would do best to appease her now. The terms: Republican leaders agree to “rescind” endorsements of Trump in exchange for one Supreme Court seat; rudimentary entitlement reform (read: higher taxes); a “Gang of Eight-style immigration bill”; a federal minimum-wage increase; up-or-down votes on future Supreme Court nominees; and a few national security appointments.

    There is a repeated theme in the arguments made by “NeverTrump,” those Republicans who have sworn not to vote for the party’s nominee, Donald Trump. That theme is: “I, me, mine.” Consider the arguments made by Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) in Tuesday’s Washington Post. She does not compare Trump to Hillary Clinton. She does not discuss his policies. Instead, she offers an extensive internal monologue: “This is not a decision I make lightly”; “I had hoped”; “I have thought long and hard."

    The GOP Establishment will do anything, including openly supporting Hillary Clinton, to ensure that Mr. Trump is defeated in November. Today, an open letter signed by fifty national security officials who served in Republican administrations from Nixon to Bush 43, was released by media outlets. The letter, minus the fifty signature blocks is printed below in italics. My comments are in regular print. STATEMENT BY FORMER NATIONAL SECURITY OFFICIALS The undersigned individuals have all served in senior national security and/or foreign policy positions in Republican Administrations, from Richard Nixon to George W. Bush. We have worked directly on national security...

    It's been a little over a year now. It's been a year of spectacle and showmanship, fury and farce, demagoguery and disaster. A year in which Donald Trump's con game tricked about 35% of Republicans into voting for him, before Vichy Republican leaders meekly bowed to his will. The single worst major party nominee in modern history — a man who has no political core, lies practically every time he speaks and is patently unstable — reached this point because every leader and institution in my party, the Republican Party, has failed again and again to grapple with the grim...

    MSNBC host Joe Scarborough said Monday that an independent conservative candidate on Monday will announce a challenge to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. "It does appear that there is going to be a well-funded independent candidate," Scarborough said on "Morning Joe," without providing a name. Scarborough, a former GOP congressman from Florida, said the candidate would aim to get on 20 to 30 state ballots.

    ANDOVER (CBS) – A woman was arrested after she allegedly vandalized a resident’s Donald Trump campaign sign and nearly ran over the homeowner as she tried to speed away. Andover Police said Susan Bryant of North Reading spray painted the Trump sign on Jenkins Road early Saturday morning. One side of the sign was painted with “Putin’s (expletive),” a reference to Trump’s purported relationship with Russia’s Vladimir Putin. On the other side, Bryant allegedly painted “Gold Star Fail!” When homeowner Art Gonsalves confronted Bryant, she allegedly drove off erratically, forcing the victim to run out of the way of her...

    The RNC, the Republican Party elite, is currently dealing with the consequences of its own stupidity (which I would have used as the title, if I hadn’t used it before.) Their hatred for Donald Trump is not based on ideology, personality or even a genuine concern that Trump is the reincarnation of Adolf Hitler. It is the far more understandable sense that Trump’s success has rendered them irrelevant, that Trump has literally stolen the Republican Party from under their noses. And that is precisely what Trump has done. They are caught between a number of options, all bad for them...

    JANESVILLE, Wisconsin — “Never Trump” movement leader Bill Kristol of the Weekly Standard seemingly accidentally let the cat out of the bag about House Speaker Paul Ryan: Kristol says Ryan is secretly working against Donald Trump, the Republican nominee for president. “Trump is corrupting everyone who has supported him, or who is working for him, and even is accommodating or rationalizing,” Kristol said in an interview with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell on Thursday, one his own publication the Weekly Standard promoted online. During the interview, Kristol incredibly claimed that Indiana Gov. Mike Pence—Donald Trump’s running mate, the vice presidential nominee—does not...

    Now that Donald Trump is safely ensconced as the official Republican nominee for president, the mainstream media is running an intense around-the-clock operation to deprive him of the relatively unfiltered media exposure he needs to seal the deal with the American people. Trump being silly and playful in front of TV cameras or utilizing his sense of humor is cast as evidence of a disordered, antisocial mind. The media is focusing on minor benign details and marketing them as the evil deeds of an evil man.

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — Hoping to capitalize on the criticism battering Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton has begun portraying support for her candidacy as a patriotic duty of voters. She's broadening her message and appealing directly to Republicans to keep him out of the White House. It's a twist for a Democratic presidential candidate who has some of the highest unpopularity ratings in history. But aides believe Trump's controversial campaign and the chaos it's caused within the Republican Party offers a unique opportunity. In Ohio recently, Clinton urged Republicans "to pick country over party." She told several thousand at a union...
