    Potential Democratic presidential candidates and the Hawkish Republican hopeful were fare better among the Jewish electorate in the State of New York, then the sort of moderate Republicans, according to new poll conducted by the Siena Research. While in general, Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren on the Democratic side, and Chris Christie, Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush on the Republican side, are seen as the best choices for President, among Jewish voters, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are the most preferred candidates for president. According to the poll, if the elections were to be held today, 51 percent of registered...
  • Jeb and Hillary: Dynastic politics in America?

    Washington Examiner ^ | 12/18/2014 | Michael Barone
    Earlier this week Jeb Bush announced he was setting up a political committee to explore a presidential candidacy. Hillary Clinton has been exploring a presidential candidacy for months and perhaps years. Polls show Clinton with a wide lead for the Democratic nomination and Bush as a leading competitor for the Republican nomination. All of which leaves many people, some of them admirers of one or both potential candidates, queasy. Out of 319 million people in America, will our 45th president be the son of the 41st and brother of the 43rd or the wife of the 42nd? The United States...

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | December 17, 2014 | Andrew Stiles
    Celebrity homeowner Hillary Clinton is a terrible politician, a Free Beacon analysis has found. This is one of many reasons why some observers have concluded she will never be president. [Snip] Clinton’s favorability numbers are trending down. She can’t sell books. She can’t sell magazines. She can’t draw crowds at universities. Most worrisome for the professional public speaker is the finding that 71 percent of registered voters want the next president to “take a different approach than Barack Obama has,” compared to just 23 percent who want a similar approach. ... (Context: Hillary Clinton was a member of the Obama...

    Hillary Rodham Clinton said Tuesday she's proud to have been part of an administration that "banned illegal renditions and brutal interrogations" and said the U.S. should never be involved in torture anywhere in the world. [Snip] She declared, "yes, black lives matter," a mantra of demonstrators around the country who have been protesting recent grand jury decisions not to indict white police officers involved in the deaths of unarmed black men in Ferguson, Missouri, and in New York. She wondered what Kennedy would say about "the thousands of Americans marching in our streets demanding justice for all," and "the mothers...

    Eliana Johnson reports that Ted Cruz and his strategists see a path to the presidency that relies on turning out the conservative base and largely ignoring independents: "It’s almost conventional wisdom now that presidential candidates woo the party faithful in primary contests and tack to the middle in the general election to attract more-moderate voters. Not Cruz. As one of his advisers puts it, “winning independents has meant not winning.” The adviser says the moderate fiscal- and social-policy positions that candidates need to adopt to win independent voters have dampened base turnout." As evidence, the adviser points out that George...

    College students at Florida International University were shocked recently to discover that not only is Hillary Clinton 67 years old, but she also hasn’t driven a car since 1996. Lauren Cooley, a field representative with Turning Point USA, recently asked 20 students if they knew these fun facts about the possible 2016 Democratic presidential nominee. Of those interviewed at the public research university, home to roughly 50,000 students, only six guessed Clinton is in her 60s, but of those, they still thought she was younger than 67, Cooley told The Fix. Most thought she is in her 40s or 50s,...

    A deadly, hours-long siege of a school in northwest Pakistan ended Tuesday evening with all the Taliban militants responsible killed, at least 130 people -- most of them children -- dead and a country once again grasping for answers after a horrific attack. Six suicide bombers scaled the walls of Army Public School and Degree College in the violence-plagued city of Peshawar around 10 a.m. (midnight ET) intent on killing older students there, according to Mohammed Khurrassani, a spokesman for the Tehreek e Taliban Pakistan, or Pakistan Taliban. These Taliban had "300 to 400 people ... under their custody" at...

    There’s no good reason for her not to run. When Elizabeth Warren rallied beleaguered House liberals to push back against a bank-coddling omnibus bill and the spineless White House that enabled it, she showed us some of her dynamic appeal. Her only leverage? An implicit threat to shut down the government. Hypocrisy? Sure. Consider the agitated criticism Warren and her allies threw at Republicans not very long ago. And yes, St. Warren’s righteousness was aimed at some inconsequential riders. Still, passing trillion-dollar pieces of legislation should never be easy, and disrupting the current cozy, bipartisan environment surely can’t be a...

    Hillary Clinton, who is expected to run for president in 2016, has been criticized after saying that America should “empathize” and “show respect” to her enemies. Her speech, focused on the promotion of feminist leadership, was given at Georgetown University in Washington D.C., December 3, 2014. Her feminist approach is for America to use “every possible tool and partner” to advance ‘peace.’ She elaborated that this approach means “showing respect, even for one’s enemies; trying to understand and, insofar as psychologically possible, empathize with their perspective and point of view.” How are we supposed to understand her speech? Who are...

She didn’t win the fight she led over the weekend to have the provision weakening the Dodd-Frank law stripped out of the spending bill, but she was never going to win that vote. What she did win, though, was the ever-more intense ardor of her growing number of liberal fans. They’d march with her over hot coals. There’s...

    There has been a lot of grumbling among the leftist hordes of the Democratic Party that indicate something less than overwhelming enthusiasm for the coronation of Hillary Clinton as their standard-bearer in 2016. It is difficult to imagine why, considering her charm, effervescence, eloquence, and unquestionable past, there would be anything but unanimous support for the good lady – unless it is because none of those qualities are attributable to her. Now comes the proposition that since she has signed on for paid speaking engagements (virtually the only thing she has been successful at) until March of 2015, Hillary can...

    It’s enough to make you feel sorry for Hillary Clinton. Well, almost. Her presidential campaign of celebrity and inevitability got off to a rocky start, mostly through her own mistakes, as when she claimed they were “dead broke” when she and Bubba left the White House. But her gaffes were mere speed bumps compared to the real threat forming now. Massachusetts firebrand Sen. Elizabeth Warren emerges from Washington’s budget clash as the undisputed champion of the rising left, and will almost certainly challenge Clinton for the 2016 nomination. The polls say it’s Hillary’s turn, but I’m starting to believe 2016...

    Ready for Warren? Run Liz Run? Run Warren Run? Draft Warren? Progressive activists haven’t agreed on what to call the movement urging Elizabeth Warren to run for president, but they largely concur on this: with every recent anti-establishment move the Massachusetts senator grows more attractive as a 2016 candidate, both in her own right and as a progressive foil for Hillary Clinton. Such sentiments were on vivid display this week at RootsCamp, a gathering of some 2,000 progressive activists held in Washington, D.C. The event was held as Warren and others on the left have been denouncing the “cromnibus” spending...

    Or may have decided. We won’t know for a few months whether the Massachusetts senator will challenge Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination, but if she chooses to run, we’re going to look back at this week as a pivotal moment in Warren’s decision-making. Warren has been waging two battles against mainstream Democrats over the past month in an attempt to reduce Wall Street’s influence within the party. Both of those battles hit inflection points this week. The first is over President Barack Obama’s nominee for the under secretary for Domestic Finance, the number three position at the Treasury Department....

    The New Republic ^ | December 11, 2014 | Michael A. Cooper Jr.
    Democrats can win in Virginia and North Carolina, and at least be competitive in Georgia, Missouri, Kentucky, Arkansas, and West Virginia. The problem is turnout. November’s election saw the worst turnout since 1942, when millions of Americans were overseas fighting in the Second World War. The typical nonvoter, then, is poor and favors Democrats. So why aren’t they showing up? While nonvoters are skeptical of immigration and gay rights, social issues don’t fire them up, otherwise they’d be voting Republican. That’s why Democrats don’t have to move right on God, guns, or abortion. They need to speak to issues that...

The strange invocation that came from the Lake Worth, Florida City Commission meeting on December 2 of this year exemplifies this, only it was apparently an anti-theist that gave the invocation. Miami anti-theist Preston Smith stood and gave an utterly moronic invocation, if you can even call it that as several of the commissioners and the mayor got up and walked out before he gave the invocation. Lake Worth Mayor Pam Triolo and three other commissioners exited the area, but later returned for...

    The most immediate consequence of the Democrats’ midterm disaster was losing control of the Senate and ceding Congress to the GOP. For the next two years, Democrats will have to deal with conservative legislation, right-wing hijinks, and—in all odds—a vacancy crisis, as Republicans freeze confirmations and refuse to fill spots in the executive branch and on the federal bench. That is bad for the Democratic Party. What’s on the horizon is worse. As Amy Walter notes for the Cook Political Report, Democrats lost big at all levels of government, including the states. “Today,” she writes, “about 55 percent of all...

    Election 2016: The State Department is dragging its feet with unusual delays in releasing records pertaining to presidential contender Hillary Clinton's tenure as secretary of state. Some requests are up to four years old. It's not as if the Associated Press and others that filed the Freedom of Information Act requests were asking for Clinton's private diaries or the encryption codes used by the State Department. Among the requests are such seemingly innocuous things as schedules, appointment, travel records, where and when she traveled, and who she traveled and met with. There are items, however, that a 2016 presidential candidate...

    WASHINGTON – In a speech at the Heritage Foundation on Wednesday that sounded like the first foreign policy address of a presidential campaign, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, called for a return to the international politics of President Ronald Reagan. Cruz contrasted Reagan’s approach with the Obama-Clinton policy of not putting distance between the U.S. and traditional allies, such as Britain and Israel, in the hope of “domesticating” long-standing enemies such as Russia and Iran. “This backfired,” Cruz argued. “The end result is that Churchill is no longer welcome in the Oval Office.

    Since stepping down as secretary of state, Hillary Clinton has made hundreds of speeches for which she has been paid handsomely, but her ineffective delivery and frequent gaffes have some questioning her strength as a presidential candidate. “Given that she has been in public life since 1992, it’s a bit incongruous to consider that her speaking style is often so lacking. She has yet to master ‘the big speech,’ which is part of the toolbox of any major politician,” contends The Washington Post’s Nia-Malika Henderson.

Frank Bruni, writing in Sunday’s New York Times, suggests that the video “positions [Hillary Clinton] first and foremost as all woman. The references are incessant,” and is part of an effort by Clinton strategists to position their candidate as the woman’s candidate. Leaving...

    The likely Democratic presidential nominee needs to duplicate, or at least come close to duplicating, Obama's performance among African-Americans. It's a tall task. Mary Landrieu lost her runoff race Saturday because President Obama isn't well-liked, national Democrats abandoned her, and, statewide, Louisiana pretty much only elects Republicans. But Democrats and their likely presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, might squirm the most over her defeat for a different reason: The longtime senator couldn't get enough support from African-Americans. Like Landrieu, Clinton (or whoever becomes the party's standard-bearer) will try to win over black voters at the same rate Obama did in both...

Surely if we only empathized with the ISIS leader a bit more, they wouldn’t be slicing off as many heads or placing as many women in sexual slavery, not to mention shooting large groups after having had them dig their own mass graves, Nazi-style.

    Several people who sent me the video embedded below, from the Hillary for President campaign that is not yet officially a campaign, warned me I might barf. But actually, I found it quite interesting in a number of respects and, upon analysis, comforting. If you have just eaten or are so averse to the former co-president that you can’t bear to click play, basically it is a three-minute-and-23-second commercial with a country song about Hillary, showing pickup trucks (it really reminded me in places of the Chevy truck “like a rock” commercials), lots and lots of white people (what happened...

    WASHINGTON—In terms of Washington politics, we have entered what a lot of people like to call the “silly season.” In the months to come there will be endless speculation as to who will make a run for president in 2016. There will be plenty of interest in both major parties since President Barack Obama is barred by law from seeking a third term. This is the time for trial balloons, fits of fancy and the rather far-fetched notion that anyone of about two dozen potential White House contenders could become the next President of the United States on January 20,...

    At a speech yesterday at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., Hillary Clinton made the case for empathizing with America's enemies. "This is what we call smart power," Clinton said to a small audience at Georgetown. "Using every possible tool and partner to advance peace and security. Leaving no one on the sidelines. Showing respect even for one's enemies. Trying to understand, in so far as psychologically possible, empathize with their perspective and point of view. Helping to define the problems, determine the solutions. That is what we believe in the 21st century will change -- change the prospects for peace."

    President Barack Obama’s choice to be the next attorney general, Loretta Lynch, has asked a federal judge to impose a prison term of four and a half years on one of Hillary Clinton’s biggest fundraisers for illegal contributions made to Clinton’s 2008 campaign, according to Yahoo!’s Michael Isikoff. Hotel magnate Sant Singh Chatwal had requested leniency from prosecutors on charges that he made more than $180,000 in illegal contributions to the Clinton campaign, but Lynch made clear this week that leniency would not be granted. “The evidence in this case reveals a man who believes that either the rules do...
  • VIDEO: Hillary Cult of Personality Already In Full Swing

    After the Obama cult of personality cashed in on superfluous adoration during the 2008 and 2012 campaigns (See: “I’ve Got a Crush on Obama“), it appears Democrats will go back to that well once more for Hillary Clinton. The Washington Post notes that the Clinton campaign’s imminence is causing a bandwagon effect:

    In the world of Twitter and Facebook hashtags, the potential 2016 presidential candidates who generate the most buzz are former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and U.S. Sen.

On Twitter, both got 47 percent of mentions on the topic. And while former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush attracts plenty of media attention, he’s virtually ignored on social media, getting a lowly 3 percent of Facebook mentions and 2 percent of tweets, Politico noted. Sen. Marco...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke at the Georgetown Institute For Women, Peace and Security and it seems like hardly anyone showed up.

Update (1:40 p.m.): Georgetown spokesperson Stacy Kerr sent a statement to Business Insider noting there has been large turnout for past events at the school with Clinton. She also suggested the fact it is the last week before final...
