  • Maryland Gerrymandering Case Against Dems Moves Forwards

    Gerrymandering is something Democrats usually whine about. It’s easy for them to do with Republicans controlling an unprecedented amount of state legislatures and gubernatorial seats in modern history – these entities deciding how congressional districts are drawn after the U.S. census is completed every ten years. However, there are undoubtedly cases of gerrymandering taking place in Democrat-controlled states. Maryland is one such example and a law school student has taken their antics to court. Steve Shapiro, an American University student, has challenged the districts drawn by former Governor Martin O’Malley and the blue legislature on first amendment grounds. The case...

    Watch her crowing about how she won and how she plans to continue onto New Hampshire standing on her record. In horse racing, the Stewards would have posted the photo sign for two horses that reached the wire together. They would not have tossed a coin. Thoroughbred racing is serious business. Money is on the line. Politics is different, especially the way Democrats play the game. Only our lives are on the line and only Hillary must win. Cheating in racing can get you suspended. Cheating in Democrat Politics can get you elected. So when six counties in Iowa finished...
  • Hillary Clinton's Internet Supporters Desperately Want This Campaign to be about Sexism

    I want to start with a few key facts, because they'll be important in a moment: 1. Among left-leaning female voters under the age of 45, Bernie Sanders holds a significant lead in the polls. 2. He's received far more donations from females than Hillary Clinton. 3. The results in Iowa showed that he won handily in the under-45 category, regardless of whether the voter was male or female. As it happens, there is absolutely a gap in support when it comes to Sanders and Clinton. But it's not a gender gap-it's an age gap. ....It's simple: Older people vote...

    Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley ended his Democratic presidential campaign Monday midway through vote-counting in the Iowa caucuses, terminating a bid that failed to gain traction against rivals Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. O'Malley's decision to drop out of the race came even before a winner had been declared but as early results showed O'Malley garnering negligible support in the first primary contest. His plans were disclosed by two people familiar with his decision, who weren't authorized to discuss the decision publicly and requested anonymity. The former two-term governor and Baltimore mayor campaigned as a can-do chief executive who had...

[Snip] "The water crisis in Flint is unconscionable. It's been going on for years, as the people of Flint repeatedly asked for help and were ignored by state government.

    Hillary Clinton revealed this morning on ABC News that she finds campaigning in Iowa "exhausting" and that "it takes a lot of concentration." Clinton made the remarks in response to a comment from ABC Robin Roberts about Clinton campaigning in all 99 Iowa counties. Clinton correct Roberts, saying in fact she hasn't visited all of Iowa, and said, "I've covered a lot of ground and I sure have met many thousands of people, and have really learned so much. That's the best part of this. It's obviously exhausting, it takes a lot of concentration, but what keeps me going are...

    Oh, what a web we weave, when we practice to deceive… Hillary’s really not very good at her main job; that of a professional liar. Every time Hillary Clinton is asked by the media about her involvement in the Email Scandal, she continually states that she did not receive or send any information marked classified at the time. When pressed on this, she comments that the information might have become classified at a later date, after it flowed through her non-secure server and into the hands of Putin, ISIS, Xi, Kim Jong-Un and the maniacal Mullahs of Teheran.

    The DNC’s planned coronation of Hillary Clinton as the Democrats’ 2016 nominee has pretty much gone off the rails at this point, with far too many voters refusing to toe the line and the pesky FBI inserting doubts in the hearts of the faithful. You may recall that, at least until now, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz has been holding the line, insisting that her paltry schedule of six debates (four before Iowa) was sufficient and would keep the voters informed. Bernie Sanders, Martin O’Malley and some big names in her base have called out the obvious ploy and been screaming...

    The campaigns of Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders have reportedly agreed to four additional debates, including one Thursday in New Hampshire before the state's Feb. 9 primary. However, both camps said the agreement was not final and that Democratic National Committee had yet to give its OK. The committee has not agreed to debates beyond the original four sanctioned ones, amid complaints from Sanders and other Democrats that Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schulz, Florida, has limited the schedule to protect the front-running Clinton. But in recent days, Clinton has urged the party to add the televised...

    2016 Elections: Democrats like to portray Republicans as out of touch. But a new poll shows that it's Democrats who are fixated on issues the public could hardly care less about, and who are too trusting of government. The poll, taken by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, asked people an open ended question: 'Which problems would you like the government to be working on in the year 2016?" Based on the campaigns of Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders and their debates so far, you'd think the answers would be things like income inequality, "taking on" Wall Street,...

    The campaign of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is raising questions about the involvement of Microsoft in the Iowa Caucuses, now just five days away, and has built a independent system to check the official results. For the first time this year, Microsoft partnered with the Iowa Democratic and Republican Parties to provide a technology platform with which the parties will run their caucuses. The software giant created separate mobile apps for each party, which officials at hundreds of caucuses across the state will use to report out results from individual precincts to party headquarters for tabulation. The arrangement has...

Investigators are meeting with the agencies and individuals to determine the classification level in the emails. The step speaks to the diligence with which the bureau is handling the investigation, despite the former secretary of state's claims that the matter boils down to a mere interagency dispute.

The Guardian has learned the party is still lacking a temporary chairman to run the caucuses in up to 300 locations across the state with just over a week to go before caucus night. These officials preside over caucuses when they first convene. Caucuses can then elect a permanent chair but invariably the temporary chair is chosen. The chair ensures the Democratic party's complex rules are followed and that an accurate vote is taken and then reported to state Democratic party. There...

    With polls showing a surge by Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump in early-voting states, billionaire Michael Bloomberg is weighing a presidential bid as an independent, third-party candidate, the New York Times reported Saturday. Bloomberg, the popular former mayor of New York City, has sent up trial balloons before. But this time he seems concerned enough about the rise of candidates on the fringes of both parties - and Hillary Clinton's weakness in Iowa and New Hampshire - to assemble advisers and set down plans. In fact, Bloomberg is reportedly even studying up on past third-party runs by H. Ross Perot...

    Every once in a while our society surprises me and that's what happened in Baltimore recently. When the first police officer in the Freddie Gray case went to court it ended in a mistrial. That was surprising enough in and of itself. I'm fairly sure that when the city, led by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and prosecutor Marilyn Mosby, decided to put the officers on trial they were fairly sure that any jury they seated would bring back a conviction. That's probably why they fought so hard against moving the case out to an area where they might find a slightly...

    Hillary Clinton on Sunday defended instructing an aide to send information to her through a "nonsecure" channel, saying the data she requested was not classified and accusing her presidential rivals of seeking to score political points over a non-issue. The State Department released more than 3,000 of Clinton's emails from her time as secretary of State on Friday. One of the emails has drawn scrutiny because in it, Clinton, who was awaiting a secure fax detailing talking points, instructed an adviser to turn the talking points into "nonpaper w no identifying heading and send nonsecure" because the fax wasn't coming...
  • Little noticed Hillary email might contain NSA intercepts

    While most of the attention on Hillary Clinton's emails dealt with a document that included instructions from Clinton to tamper with the headings of a possibly classified subject, another, even more explosive email is big news in Sudan and could potentially lead to criminal charges. The email in question is from Sid Blumenthal, close Clinton friend and ally, who was in Libya trying to drum up business with the Libyan government for some business associates. To ingratiate himself with Secretary Clinton and get the State Department to intercede with the Libyan government on his behalf, he sent her "intelligence" briefs...

    Juanita Broaddrick recently opened up on Twitter over her sexual assault by Bill Clinton and Hillary's dismissal of her suffering. If Hillary Clinton wants to champion women's rights, she should stop excusing the sexual predation of her husband, former president Bill Clinton. For someone so interested in combating the so-called War on Women, she has failed to address one of the most real issues women face-that of sexual violence. Anyone old enough to remember Clinton's presidency is aware of the scandal and eventual impeachment over his behavior and prevarications on what truth actually is during the Lewinsky affair. In the...

    The ethanol mandate, known formally as the Renewable Fuel Standard or RFS, is an object lesson in misguided government policy surviving long after its original rationales have been destroyed. The national security rationale was that oil was scarce, but now we're the world's leading oil producer and have begun exporting crude. The environmental rationale was that ethanol would reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but since a landmark study was published in Nature in 2008 we've known: "there's little doubt that ethanol is making global warming worse." Even the jobs rationale fails. Per the Congressional Budget Office: "roughly the same amount of...

    Supply-side economist Arthur Laffer is predicting Republicans will win the White House in a landslide this year, regardless of the nominee. “I would be surprised if the Republicans don’t take 45, 46, 47 states out of the 50,” Laffer told host John Catsimatidis on “The Cats Roundtable” on New York’s AM-970 on Sunday. “I mean, I think we’re going to landslide this election.” Laffer, who served in various positions in the Nixon, Ford and Reagan administrations, said he is bullish on the entire Republican primary field. “When I look at these candidates, I don’t see one of them who wouldn’t...

    Bill Ayers. Remember him?: Unrepentant terrorist, SDS riotmaker, pal and political mentor of young Barack Obama, and putative author/ghostwriter of Obama's famous 1995 memoir, Dreams of My Father. In 2011, Ayers (shown) publicly claimed authorship of Dreams (see video of Ayers here) after Dr. Jack Cashill's forensic literary analysis - in a 2008 article and his more extensive book-length analysis in 2011, Deconstructing Obama had convincingly made the case that Ayers, a talented wordsmith, had written the book for the unskilled Obama to help launch the up-and-coming young comrade's political career. During Obama's 2008 run for the White House, his...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) says attacks against former President Bill Clinton's sexual history are not fair game for politicians looking to defeat his wife and Democratic primary front-runner Hillary Clinton. "I think, you know, we have enormous problems facing this country, and I think we got more things to worry about than Bill Clinton's sexual life," Sanders said Sunday on ABC's "This Week." Republican primary front-runner Donald Trump has recently made the sexual allegations against Clinton an issue in the White House race. Sanders said Trump would be better off focusing on serious issues facing the nation, like climate change.
  • Sanders: Bill Clinton's scandals 'totally disgraceful'

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Friday called Bill Clinton's sexual scandals "totally disgraceful and unacceptable" but said he would not use the former president's infidelities against Hillary Clinton. Sanders' comments came after an Iowa town hall attendee raised Bill Clinton's affair in the White House and questioned if Hillary Clinton was qualified to be president, the Washington Post reported. "My question to you is, isn't one of the qualifications to be president to have some kind of moral authority?," the attendee asked Sanders. "I mean, how can you tell a Secret Service agent that he has to be fired for...

    FoxNews released a new poll on Friday. As I've said many times, at this stage of the game it is foolish to focus on specific numbers. Divining what the voting cohort of November 2016 will look like is virtually impossible. But what the polls, taken as a group, can show us are trends. First we'll look at the topline numbers and then try to scratch around in the seething, effervescing puddle of intergers and see what we can see. National Topline. Trump 35, Cruz 20, Rubio 13, Carson 10, Christie 2, Bush 4, Paul 2, Fiorina 3, Kasich 2, Huckabee...
