    Ted Cruz -- my guy -- confounded the public pollsters with his victory in Iowa, snapping up 35% of the vote in a (much too) crowded field. The comb-over candidate Donald Trump ran away with New Hampshire, as nearly everyone predicted. John Kasich, with almost 16%, came in second with Cruz, at nearly 12%, in third place.

    The Iowa Democratic caucus which I've already described as akin to the Marxist Zimbabwe Farmers-workers confabs is over, and it appears -- as Mark Steyn ably notes -- "almost certain" that Hillary Clinton did not win it. If Iowa were one of those banana republics in which the president-for-life has been prevailed upon to hold an election and Jimmy Carter and a bunch of UN observers had flown in to certify it, none of the above would pass muster. But in the Democrat Party it does:[snip] In effect, Hillary and Bernie fought Iowa to a draw. But a miss is...

    When Advisers Hate Israel The dark narrative in Hillary's emails. February 5, 2016 Joseph Klein Hillary Clinton has tried to portray herself as a steadfast friend of Israel. "I have stood with Israel my entire career," she wrote in an article appearing last November in The Forward. "As president, I will continue this fight." She promised that she would "invite the Israeli prime minister to the White House in my first month in office." Hillary Clinton's steadfast support for the disastrous nuclear deal with Iran calls into question her stated "personal commitment" to "fighting for Israel." Peace and security...

    Democratic presidential contender Bernie Sanders has tapped several critics of Israel to advise him on foreign policy, including one who has compared Israelis to “Nazis” and accused them of waging “a Holocaust.” Sanders, who is Jewish and had family members slaughtered during the Holocaust, recently disclosed that his top foreign policy advisers include J Street, a dovish Middle East advocacy group that backs some of Congress’ most vocal critics of Israel, former assistant Secretary of Defense Larry Korb, and James Zogby, an Israel detractor who heads the Arab American Institute. The inclusion of these advisers in the Sanders’ campaign, which...

    The Hillary Clinton email issue is developing into a real whodunit, complete with Clintonesque legal semantics. "I never sent or received any material marked classified," she said with respect to the discovery of classified information on her private, unclassified email server. That surface denial nearly rivals Bill Clinton's classic: "I did not have sexual relations with that woman." But this is no laughing matter. There is nothing trivial about a secretary of state having top-secret information on an unsecured computer in her home. That appears to have been the case, based on the State Department's announcement last week that 22...

In fact, Bloomberg is reportedly even studying up on past third-party runs by H. Ross Perot...

Early on Friday morning when most Americans are asleep, save second-story men, the State Department released thousands of Clinton's emails.

    Bill Kristol, editor of The Weekly Standard, made a bold pronouncement on ABC's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos" Sunday, predicting Vice President Joe Biden will get in the race for president Monday or Tuesday. "Joe Biden's going to get in, I'm quite confident. I think he'll get in tomorrow or Tuesday," Kristol said. "I think he'll go to Delaware, presumably, and he'll announce in a state he represented for so many years, and I think he'll be a strong candidate."

    CLEMSON, SC (WIS) - Vice President Joe Biden, who touts himself as Washington’s optimist, delivered an uncharacteristically stern speech on sexual assault to a packed gym of Clemson University students Tuesday morning. 'Sexual assault isnt about sex,' Biden said, 'Its about power.' Biden delivered his 30-minute address at Clemson on the first stop of his It’s On Us tour. The program raises awareness against sexual assault on college campuses, a portion of the United States that Biden says has fallen behind in the fight against rape and domestic violence. 'No means no,' Biden said. 'There are no exceptions.' Biden,...

    Without mentioning his name, US Vice President blasts new hasbarah chief Dr. Ran Baratz, over his past comments against President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry. Biden was quick to stress America's “rock-solid” commitment to Israeli security at the start of his 45-minute address before the Union for Reform Judaism's biennial in Orlando, Florida. Then, in sharp condemnation of Baratz, Biden noted that "although we won’t always agree, and this is the one thing I do want to say - We should always be respectful of one another." “There is no excuse, there should be no tolerance for...

    After Barack Obama’s totally predictable cancellation of the Keystone XL pipeline project (for now, at least) there was great celebration among the environmental brigade of the Social Justice Warriors. The evil pipeline was dead, along with all the jobs it would bring and the opportunity for us to capture and process much of Canada’s wealth of energy rather than it being shipped to China. (Which it will be anyway when the Northern Gateway Pipeline is complete, whether we get some of it or not.) But as with all things in the liberal enclaves of the country, one victory is...

Because he is the Decider.And besides, who needs energy independence now that the Decider has stabilized relations with all the oil producing companies in the Middle East? Indeed, who needs to rely on any of those disgusting fossil fuels when our Decider has paved the way for alternate energy sources like wind, solar, algae and...

    WASHINGTON, Sept. 17—     Senator Joseph R. Biden Jr., fighting to salvage his Presidential campaign, today acknowledged ''a mistake'' in his youth, when he plagiarized a law review article for a paper he wrote in his first year at law school.       Mr. Biden insisted, however, that he had done nothing ''malevolent,'' that he had simply misunderstood the need to cite sources carefully. And he asserted that another controversy, concerning recent reports of his using material from others' speeches without attribution, was ''much ado about nothing.''~snip~The plagiarized article, ''Tortious Acts as a Basis for Jurisdiction in Products Liability Cases,'' was published in the...

    Vice President Joe Biden says in a new interview that he would have run for president if he thought he could have won. Ill be very blunt. If I thought we couldve put together the campaign that that our supporters deserve and our contributors deserve, Ill I would have gone ahead and done it, Biden said on 60 Minutes late Sunday. The interview is the first the vice president has given since announcing his decision not to run for the Democratic presidential nomination last week. Biden had been mulling whether to enter the White House race for several...

Testifying to the House Select Committee on Benghazi, a composed and controlled Mrs. Clinton said she was involved in the big decisions of deploying Stevens to Libya and pressing President Obama to lead...
