    The Liberals were right after all They told us if Trump were elected there would be violence in the streets. They were right. They just didn't tell us it was they, not Trump supporters, who would unleash violence. They said if he were elected, there would be nasty, virulent, vile, profanity-laced backlash against women. They were right. They just didn't tell us the target of these attacks would be one woman - Melania - solely due to her last name. They claimed illegal immigrants would be running scared. They were right. They just didn't tell us they'd be running from...

    Some of the remnants of Hillary Clintons rampage in the private VIP area was discovered by the HOTEL CUSTODIAL STAFF the day following the election. Early in the morning, the custodial staff were greeted by flipped-over tables as the floors were covered with expensive food, drinks, and appetizers. Broken champagne flutes and gilded silverware were also seen scattered around the would-be party room. The most telling sign of a massive meltdown was the cake. The pastry that had once proudly displayed the presidential seal, was violently flung against the walls in chunks. A broken topper from the cake in the...

She was supposed to deliver it shortly after it was apparent she had lost on Tuesday evening. She was going to speak. No, she was not ready. Then it was coming Wednesday morning. No, it would be put off for a while. She supposedly was very gracious in talking to Donald Trump later that night, but was still not ready to concede publicly until late morning Wednesday.

    An unhinged Hillary Clinton erupted on a protester at her Fort Lauderdale, Florida rally on Tuesday night after he accused her husband of being a rapist. As Clinton spoke, the protester shouted, "Bill Clinton is a rapist!" as the audience began to boo. Hillary's demeanor almost instantly changed and she became angry at the protester and screaming at him. "You know, I am sick and tired of the negative, dark, divisive vision from people who support Donald Trump," she shouted before she was drowned out by the crowd. "We are not going backwards, we are going forwards!" she yelled, continuing...

Leslie Palma, a spokesperson for Priests for Life, told The Daily Beast that Trump did not dial-in.

    President Barack Obama’s spokesman angrily lashed out at Donald Trump for proposing a ban on Muslim immigration to the United States, and accused him of 'offensive bluster' and “grotesque and offensive” language. “The fact is, that what Donald Trump said yesterday disqualifies him from serving as president,” spokesman Josh Earnest said, suggesting to reporters that his words were fundamentally anti-American. Earnest denounced Trump's “carnival barker routine” which included 'outright lies' and mocked the Republican frontrunner for having 'fake hair.' He said: The Trump campaign, for months now, has had a dustbin of history-like quality to it, from the vacuous sloganeering...

Recent developments indicate that this alternative nuclear power technology is finally making progress toward commercialization.

    Investors and financial journalists scrambling to find an explanation for the recent plunge in global stock markets have plenty of suspects. Some look abroad for scapegoats: Greece or China. Others blame Janet Yellen: the Federal Reserve she chairs is at long last on the verge of raising interest rates, if only slightly. Personally, I blame the decline in share values on Donald Trump. On immigration, Trump has made a name for himself as the restrictionist candidate. Yet scholars describe increased immigration as an engine of economic growth. The last time America slammed the immigration door shut, in 1929, with the...

The venerable political organization is about to elect as leader a man who has called Hamas and Hezb'allah "friends," whose radical economic ideas are scaring the wits out of the financial industry, and whose bombastic and aggressive style turns off most voters. In short, Labor is about to commit political suicide by electing Jeremy Corbyn as its leader and is tearing itself...

Mr. Obama told the country that the legislation would lift our economy. The statute itself declared that it would end too big to fail and promote financial stability. None of that has come to pass. Too-big-to-fail institutions have not disappeared. Big banks are bigger, small banks are fewer, and the financial system is less stable. Meanwhile, the economy remains in the doldrums. Dodd-Frank was based on the premise that the financial crisis was the...

Bushs decision to reveal his intention to explore a presidential bid in mid-December of last year indicated that he knew the 2016 field would be a crowded one and that he would have to make his case to the Republican electorate early and often. But his actions betrayed a sense of self-assuredness that indicated he did not really believe the contest would be a close one. The pathway to the...

    Washington Posts Robert Costa and Ed OKeefe have a good rundown of how presumptive GOP frontrunner Jeb Bush suddenly found himself atop a staggering campaign. Aside from organizational and message woes, they pinpoint Bushs still inexplicable failure to answer Fox News host Megyn Kellys question about the Iraq War as the moment when Bushs luck began to turn. In particular, one source told the reporters that Bushs inability to answer what should have been an expected question, which crystallize[d] some of the key concerns about Bush, spooked donors: We should have had that answer nailed down, one donor said. There...

    Jeb Bush is doing damage control days before he officially launches his bid for the Republican presidential nomination. Bush was seen as the GOP front-runner late last year, when he said he was exploring the possibility of a run. Since then, hes stumbled over questions about the Iraq War, and his poll numbers have dropped him to fifth place among Republicans in Iowa. The former Florida governors message to reporters in Germany on Wednesday is that it is far too early to be worried about the polls. He expressed frustration with reporters for asking too many questions about the horse...

    Former Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn had a blunt assessment of Jeb Bush's chances of capturing the White House: "I don't think another Bush can get elected." In an interview with the Washington Examiner Coburn said, "I think there's Bush fatigue and I think you automatically lose a large percentage of the electorate." He explained, "I like Jeb Bush. But the fact is his last name will kill 47 percent of the votes for him potential votes in this country. That's a big deal to get over."

    Former Gov. Jeb Bushs campaign is in trouble. This week alone, it has sustained a top-level campaign shake-up and reports have circulated that it may fall short of its fundraising goal. But a review of the public record shows it already fell way short of its fundraising goal, and has been behind predictions for months. Not by a few million dollars, either, but by as much as $400 million or 80 percent as the most optimistic predictions Bush loyalists have circulated. All of this campaign shuffles and fundraising shortfalls before Mr. Bush has even declared his candidacy....

    Washington Post ^ | 6/10/15 | Ed O'Keefe and Robert Costa
    When asked to pinpoint where Jeb Bushs presidential effort began running into trouble, many confidants utter a single word: Dallas. Mike Murphy, Bushs political alter ego, decided early on to hold regular senior staff meetings at an unusual location: a Hyatt hotel inside the terminal at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. The idea was that it was a central and relatively inexpensive gathering place for a team scattered from Los Angeles, where Murphy lives, to Miami, where the would-be candidate resides. It went fine at first but quickly became an awkward routine. Donors and other Republicans found the setup ungainly for...

    Jeb Bush will announce for president in five days' time. But not before a significantly less-than-ideal run-up to this long (long, long, long) awaited announcement. Consider: * The decision to install Danny Diaz as campaign manager was largely painted as a shakeup -- with Diaz stepping in after Bush boss Sally Bradshaw decided things weren't working optimally. (This Politico behind-the-scenes account of the moves and the motivations behind them is fascinating.) Campaign reorganizations are the sort of process-heavy stories that campaign work like hell to avoid. To have one before the campaign is even a real thing is remarkable --...
