  • Ted Nugent Isn’t Just an Anti-Semitic Halfwit. He’s Also Bad for Guns.

    The rocker’s latest vile campaign targets Jews, but it hurts Second Amendment supporters most Mark Twain, who knew a thing or two about idiots, famously warned his readers not to argue with fools; do that, he quipped, and onlookers may not be able to tell the difference. So it's with much trepidation that I'm addressing Ted Nugent's latest outrage: having previously written a song that advocated handcuffing and raping underage girls, and having allegedly put his passion for prepubescence into practice by engaging in sexual conduct with a twelve-year-old--illegal, immoral, inconceivable to any conscientious human being--the degenerate rocker posted anti-Semitic...

    (CNN)Ted Cruz will launch his most forceful attack yet against Donald Trump in a TV ad that accuses Trump of buying political influence "in a pattern of sleaze stretching back decades." The 60-second spot, shared first with CNN, is part of a six-figure ad buy that will hit voters' TV screens across South Carolina starting as early as Thursday. It centers around Vera Coking, an elderly widow who faced the threat of losing her home in Atlantic City when the city tried to seize it through eminent domain — in order to allow Trump to build a casino parking lot....

    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...

    Reuters ^ | February 5, 2016 | Tim McLaughlin and Peter Eisler
    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...

    Donald Trump argued that radio host Glenn Beck -- who has endorsed Ted Cruz -- can't vote for Cruz in his state's primary Saturday because he is no longer a registered Republican. For Trump, this provides proof that Beck is "dumb as rock." "Word is that crying @GlennBeck left the GOP and doesn't have the right to vote in the Republican primary. Dumb as a rock," Trump tweeted Saturday. If true, this would serve as rich irony for many observers. Trump has been hit for his fleeting party affiliation history, but is, by all accounts, currently a registered Republican in...

In order to restructure his debt, Trump gave Citibank and other creditors a 49% ownership interest in the hotel.As for Goldman Sachs, Trump is himself a shareholder in Goldman Sachs, which means he has a direct financial interest in its success. One would think that would make Trump even less enthusiastic about protecting me from Goldman Sachs (whatever...

"He's being a great hypocrite, wouldn't you think?" Trump said Saturday at a Portsmouth, N.H., rally.

    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...

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.

    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...

Maybe that was a deliberate choice made by Francis, to stick to politics and universal principles before a domestic television audience with many millions of non-Christians. (He did mention Moses.)

    RUSH: Folks, get a load of this. This is Hillary Clinton. This is today, Claremont, New Hampshire, at River Valley Community College. It's a town hall campaign event, and Hillary decided that she would talk about something she's responsible for, and that is the lack of civility on the Internet. Yes, I knew that would get your attention. I knew that would get your attention! She doesn't say she's responsible for it. I'm saying she's in part largely responsible for the incivility on the Internet. I'll explain why in a moment. It should be obvious. But here's what she said......

    Hillary Clinton just spoke, along with Republican presidential contender and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, at the National Urban League Conference. She preceded Bush on stage and used the moment to seize his campaign slogan, "Right to Rise," and give it her own spin to attack the governor before he could speak. According to Clinton, "I don't think you can credibly say everyone has a right to rise and then say you're for ... repealing Obamacare. People can't rise if they can't afford health care. They can't rise if the minimum wage is too low to live on. They can't...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi wondered Thursday whether opponents of President Obamas Iran nuclear program agreement read the deal before coming out in opposition to it, and said shes certain she can keep enough Democrats in line to sustain an Obama veto and preserve his policy. Praising both Mr. Obama and former President George W. Bush, who she said began building the international coalition that first imposed sanctions and then earlier this month agreed to the deal with Iran, Mrs. Pelosi said she was confident the opponents campaign to try to defeat the deal in Congress will fail. She also...

    Just hours after Hillary Clinton unveiled her presidential campaign's push to solve global warming through an aggressive carbon-cutting plan, she sauntered up the steps of a 19-seat private jet in Des Moines, Iowa. The aircraft, a Dassault model Falcon 900B, burns 347 gallons of fuel per hour. And like all Dassault business jets, Hillary's ride was made in France. The Trump-esque transportation costs $5,850 per hour to rent, according to the website of Executive Fliteways, the company that owns it. And she has used the same plane before, including on at least one trip for speeches that brought her $500,000...

    Cass Sunstein, the former Obama administration regulatory czar, has warned the campus crusade against microaggressions could potentially be enforced by a new cadre of thought police. [] Sunstein chastises the University of California at Berkeley for its willingness to consider disciplining people for making one of a large number of statements, many or all of which most Americans would consider harmless or even correct. He also mentions another university, the University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point, has taken a stand against microaggressions by publishing a list of examples of racial microaggressions.

    Hillary Rodham Clinton said Tuesday the Confederate battle flag should not be displayed anywhere, weighing in as South Carolina lawmakers seek to remove it from the grounds of their statehouse. The Democratic presidential candidate called the deadly shootings of nine black church members in Charleston, South Carolina, an act of racist terrorism perpetrated in a house of God. Clinton called the Confederate flag a symbol of our nations racist past that has no place in our present or our future. It shouldnt fly there. It shouldnt fly anywhere.

    Hillary Clinton: I think about how many South Carolinians have served in our military and who are serving today under our flag and I believe that we should have one flag that we all pay honor to, as I know that most people in South Carolina do every single day, Clinton told The Associated Press in an interview. I personally would like to see it removed from the Statehouse grounds.

    Hillary Clinton spoke about the shooting at Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina by posing the following questions: How many innocent people in our country from little children to church members to movie theater attendees? How many people do we need to see cut down before we act? In the first question, Hillary makes obvious references to the shootings at Sandy Hook, the theater shooting in Colorado as well as both the shooting at the Sikh Temple in Wisconsin and last night's attack. Hillary speaks of little children, church members and movie theater attendees. But what about our...

    President Barack Obama on Thursday expressed profound sadness and anger at the Charleston church shooting as well as deeply personal frustration that Americas political climate makes it virtually impossible for now to tighten restrictions on who can buy firearms. We dont have all the facts, but we do know that once again, innocent people were killed in part because someone who wanted to inflict harm had no trouble getting their hands on a gun, Obama said in the White House briefing room, Vice President Joe Biden standing at his side.

    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton today rolled out a series of programs designed to reduce the youth unemployment rate, but Clinton, herself, is building out a portion of her campaign with unpaid labor. Clintons campaign is establishing a network of grassroots trainees, called Organizing Fellows, who are being signed on full-time to work for free. Some, even those who are young professionals with experience in politics, are reportedly being told they need to work without pay for at least the summer months. Some see Clintons fellowship program, which is comprised of mostly 18 to 24 year olds likely doing much...
