    Hillary Clinton cast Donald Trump as out of touch with the United States while campaigning Monday in Delaware, arguing that the Republican front-runner flies into states, gives speeches and then returns to the lap of luxury without listening to voters' problems. "Donald Trump says wages are too high in America and doesn't support raising the minimum wage and I have said, 'Come out of those towers named for yourself and actually talk and listen to people,'" Clinton said. "At some point, if you want to be president of the United States, you have to get familiar with the United States,...

    Bono understands your plight. He knows you pay a lot in taxes. He wants you to pay more: Tuesday on MSNBCs Morning Joe, U2 frontman and anti-poverty activist Bono called for the U.S. to send more assistance to Europe to shore up the European Union as it buckles under the Third World migrant crisis, even though Americans are struggling to bear their own tax burdens. I know the American taxpayer is really hurting at the moment and the same in Europe, Bono said. But I think between Europe and America there is a consensus building that, you know, the corruption...

    Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders rails against the billionaire class and has called income inequality the greatest moral issue of our time, but the senator from Vermont is not exactly a man of modest means, according to an article written by Kerri Anne Renzulli for the TIME magazine website. However, nothing about Bernies net worth devalues his progressive beliefs, stated Peter Daou, a former adviser to Hillary Clinton who responded on the Blue Nation Review website to reports that Sanders and his wife, Jane, could retire with an effective retirement nest egg valued at nearly $2 million.

But instead of making a blanket declaration that he has been faithful during the entirety of his 14-year marriage a move that would effectively end the vicious news cycle Cruz stood silently as campaign surrogate Carly Fiorina leapt in to intercept the question and change the subject.

    President Barack Obama said Tuesday he was deeply disturbed by the vulgar and divisive rhetoric directed at women and minorities as well as the violence in the 2016 presidential campaign, a swipe at Republican front-runner Donald Trump. Without mentioning the GOP candidate by name, Obama used a unity luncheon at the Capitol to express his concern with the political discourse and the protests that have escalated to attacks at the Trump rallies. The candidate has spoken of barring Muslims and deporting immigrants living here illegally.

    We hear terrible things about outsourcing jobs--how sending work outside of our companies is contributing to the demise of American businesses. But in this instance I have to take the unpopular stance that it is not always a terrible thing. I understand that outsourcing means that employees lose jobs. Because work is often outsourced to other countries, it means Americans lose jobs. In other cases, nonunion employees get the work. Losing jobs is never a good thing, but we have to look at the bigger picture. Last year, Nobel Prize-winning economist Dr. Lawrence R. Klein, the founder of Wharton Econometric...

Calderon, a conservative who was president of Mexico from 2006 to 2012, even said he thought Trump was trying to exploit the same social feelings and resentments as did Adolf Hitler. "I think his logic of exalting white supremacy isn't even acting against immigration - Donald Trump is the descendant of migrants - it is acting and speaking against immigrants who have a different...

    When Marco Rubio attacked Donald Trump on the debate stage this week for using undocumented Polish workers to build Trump Tower, the developer shrugged it off. "He brings up something from 30 years ago," Trump shot back. "It worked out very well. Everybody was happy." But a look into the history of the Trump Tower, the crown jewel of the real-estate mogul's empire, reveals the beginnings of the 68-story building were, in fact, rooted in the back-breaking labor of 150-odd Polish immigrants most working illegally, some without full pay. "It's constructed on the blood, sweat and tears of the...

    WASHINGTON -- Senate Democrats are attacking the Republican leadership for having the gall to suggest that any action to fill the Supreme Court's vacancy be put off until next year. Republicans argue that the nation is embroiled in a politically divisive presidential election. It would be an unfair end run around the will of the people to allow a lame duck president to fill the vacancy with a lifetime position that would likely turn the high court in a sharply leftist direction, perhaps for many years to come. With our nation preparing to vote in a little more than eight...

    Pope Francis refused Thursday to condemn Italy's attempts to introduce gay unions legislation, which have polarized public opinion and are being resisted by the national Catholic Church. Catholic-majority Italy is the last Western European nation with no laws on same-sex partnerships. It has been urged to change the status quo by both its constitutional court and the European Court of Human Rights. "The Pope does not meddle with Italian politics," Francis said in an in-flight press conference returning from Mexico. "Because the Pope belongs to everybody, he cannot enter the concrete, domestic politics of a country. This is not the...

    The White House said Wednesday that President Obama "regrets" his filibuster against Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito in 2006, but insisted the situation was different than Republicans' current vow to block any nominee to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia. "These are two different things," said White House press secretary Josh Earnest. "The president's objections to then-President Bush's nominee were based in substance." In 2006, then-Sen. Obama and 23 other Democrats -- including Hillary Clinton -- tried to filibuster Justice Alito's nomination. He was confirmed for the high court anyway.

Obama doesn't care about the fact that he filibustered Justice Samuel Alito's nomination in an attempt to prevent the Senate from voting to confirm him, he demanded that Republicans allow a vote on his nominee. After Scalia's death, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the Senate will not take up a vote on a replacement for deceased pro-life Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia until after the presidential election. Such a promise prevents pro-abortion President...

    Politicians tailor their messages to different audiences. Facing New Hampshire's primary, Ted Cruz talked more about "free-market principles" and a "commitment to the Constitution" and said "no one personality can right the wrongs done by Washington." Politico ran the headline "Ted Cruz, born-again libertarian." I'm skeptical. Campaigning in Iowa, Cruz had emphasized religion and social conservatism. But politicians no longer just target voters state-by-state -- they target by person. Last election, President Obama beat Mitt Romney partly by doing just that. Obama had 50 people working in data analytics. Romney had four. "The campaign manager for the Obama campaign said...

    Barack Obama might seem an unlikely investor in the firearms industry. But the U.S. president, a fierce advocate for gun regulation, has money in a pension fund that holds stock in gun and ammunition companies. Although Obama's stake is minuscule, worth no more than $30, it reflects a much larger surge of investment. The president is among millions of Americans buying into gun companies - often unwittingly - as mutual funds have increased such holdings to record levels, according to a Reuters analysis of institutional investment in firearms companies. Since Obama was elected in 2009, mutual funds have raised their...

    At the start of 2015 President Obama had a goal: use the blunt force of taxation to effectively kill 529 college savings plans. With great pride, Americans from all walks of life rely on 529 accounts to help put their kids, grandkids, nieces and nephews through college. Earnings grow tax-free and distributions are tax-free provided the funds are used for qualified college expenses. But this year Obama decided it was time to tax the earnings in 529s while pushing people toward a government program designed by his administration's best and brightest central planners. It was a spectacular failure. The public...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Here's Obama right now up on Capitol Hill, this is 150th anniversary of the 13th Amendment. What did the 13th Amendment do? Pop quiz, anybody know? (interruption) Right. So why is Obama celebrating it? The 13th Amendment abolished slavery. It ended slavery. Why is he up there honoring it? You know that he doesn't think that we've gotten rid of slavery. The Black Lives Matter crowd doesn't think we've gotten rid of it. The civil rights coalition still acts like we have slavery in this country. This is blatant hypocrisy what he's doing up here. I'm dead...

    Florida Congressman Alan Grayson told radio host Alan Colmes Wednesday that if Ted Cruz is elected president, he “will file that beautiful lawsuit saying that he's unqualified for the job” according to the Constitution.Cruz was born in Canada to a native-born American mother, making the presidential candidate a dual Canadian-American citizen. It was not until a 2013 Dallas Morning News article that Cruz acknowledged his Canadian citizenry publicly. In 2014, the senator renounced his Canadian citizenship altogether.Lamenting the “appalling choices” Republicans have to choose among, Grayson told Colmes the Republican race “resolved itself into this weird reality show.”“It's not ‘The...

    In the November 16 Presidential Debate, the Democratic candidates argued about the minimum wage. They all favored raising it, with Hillary Clinton arguing for $12 per hour. What she preaches is not what she practices, when running her own campaign. Recently, her lawyers asked the Federal Election Commission (FEC) for permission to use unpaid interns during "the spring, summer, or fall at the Campaign's headquarters office in Brooklyn." The lucky students would receive nothing from the Clinton campaign. However, Clinton wants the college to give the interns college credit. She also wants the college to pay the student $3,000. The...

    Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings has said that he is more afraid of "white men" than Syrian refugees. Despite his fear of whites, however, the mayor manages to get by living in a ritzy neighborhood that is more than 92 percent white and only 1 percent black. The former CEO of Pizza Hut, Rawlings lives in the prestigious Preston Hollow neighborhood, which D Magazine described as "almost entirely lily white" as part of a feature piece titled "Why are the Best Neighborhoods in Dallas Still Segregated?" The cushy neighborhood, which is home to former President George W. Bush, golfer Jordan Spieth,...

    President Obama discussed America's faults Friday with young Asian leaders, saying the U.S. suffers from "pitfalls" such as income inequality, a political system controlled by the wealthy and political parties divided along racial lines. Speaking at a town-hall event in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Mr. Obama said the biggest problem in the U.S. is the influence of the wealthy on the government. "It is very important to avoid any political system where money overwhelms ideas," said Mr. Obama, who raised a record $1.1 billion for his reelection campaign in 2012. "And the United States politics process has become so expensive and...

    Senator Bernie Sanders has repeatedly denounced campaigns that he says are built around their candidates attending fund-raisers. He has insisted he will not go out hustling money from the wealthiest people in the country, and declared at the first Democratic debate that he is not raising money from millionaires and billionaires. Yet Mr. Sanders was cheered at a fancy campaign fund-raiser at the Hollywood home of Syd Leibovitch, a high-end real estate agent, and his wife, Linda, on Wednesday night. Tickets for the event sold for a minimum of $250. Those who spent the maximum, $2,700, or who raised $10,000,...

    ED. NOTE: As this article is posted, Pope Francis begins his visit to the United States. In his encyclical released in June of this year, the pope singled out air conditioning as being a "harmful habit" that is a symbol of rampant capitalism that is blind to the plight of the poor and disadvantaged. These comments by Matt Michel, CEO of Service Roundtable, serve as a timely response. Since becoming pontiff, Pope Francis has repeatedly made the news for his criticism and condemnation of capitalism and free markets. Worse, in his encyclical, he singled out air conditioning as particularly...

    Jumping into the issues of the day, Pope Francis opened his visit to the United States with a strong call Wednesday for action to combat climate change, calling it a problem that can no longer be left to a future generation. President Barack Obama, in turn, hailed the pontiff as a moral force who is shaking us out of our complacency with reminders to care for the poor and the planet. The White House mustered all the pageantry it had to offer as the pope arrived at the White House before an adoring crowd of thousands and a nation that...

    I've been a Roman Catholic since 1954. I have great respect for Pope Francis. When it comes to matters of faith and morals, what he says, goes. But when it comes to politics and economics, the pope is about as far from infallible as anyone can get. For example, he was in Cuba earlier this week, meeting informally with Fidel Castro and touring the island to say Masses and meet with priests. Apparently the pope was having such a good time he forgot that for more than half a century Cuba has been a rotten communist prison camp and his...

    In a 3,404-word address, he used only 75 words on the two topics. Pope Francis touched on many topics in his speech to Congress, but conservatives may have expected him to say more about abortion and same-sex marriage. During his historic speech at a joint meeting of Congress on Thursday, Pope Francis hit upon a variety of issues that have defined the Catholic church: protecting the environment, helping the poor, addressing the plight of immigrants, abolishing the death penalty and taking a stand against the proliferation of the weapons trade, to name a few. Yet, while the pope had strong...

    Mr. Vice-President, Mr. Speaker, Honorable Members of Congress, Dear Friends, I am most grateful for your invitation to address this Joint Session of Congress in "the land of the free and the home of the brave". I would like to think that the reason for this is that I too am a son of this great continent, from which we have all received so much and toward which we share a common responsibility. Each son or daughter of a given country has a mission, a personal and social responsibility. Your own responsibility as members of Congress is to enable this...
