The editorial board's endorsements, published online and to run in Sunday's print edition, come two days before the Iowa caucuses on Monday.

    A full two months after the incident, but on the same day as Thursday’s Fox Business debate, Jeb Bush released a 60 second ad defending New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski from Republican frontrunner Donald Trump. The ad is titled “Enough” and opens with a clip of Bush telling a (small) gathering of supporters, “I’ve got to get this off my chest — Donald Trump is a jerk.”

    Yesterday, the New York Times ran and “investigative” piece on Ted Cruz’s finances. I their story they point to an alleged failure by Ted Cruz to report a loan he received to finance his campaign: Those reports show that in the critical weeks before the May 2012 Republican primary, Mr. Cruz - currently a leading contender for his party's presidential nomination - put "personal funds" totaling $960,000 into his Senate campaign. Two months later, shortly before a scheduled runoff election, he added more, bringing the total to $1.2 million - "which is all we had saved," as Mr. Cruz described...

    David Brooks' all-out assault on Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has reached unforeseen heights today with a column in which he labels Cruz "brutal" and un-Christian for his harsh rhetoric against the left. Here's Brooks' reprehensible, religiously bigoted attack: Cruz is a stranger to most of what would generally be considered the Christian virtues: humility, mercy, compassion and grace. Cruz's behavior in the Haley case is almost the dictionary definition of pharisaism: an overzealous application of the letter of the law in a way that violates the spirit of the law, as well as fairness and mercy.

    Because Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz doesn’t properly crease his pants or favor the infanticide of partial-birth abortion, on the pages of The New York Times, columnist David Brooks (who identifies as a conservative) openly questions Cruz’s Christian faith, and does so for the sin of Cruz doing his job as solicitor general for the state of Texas. The case reveals something interesting about Cruz's character. Ted Cruz is now running strongly among evangelical voters, especially in Iowa. But in his career and public presentation Cruz is a stranger to most of what would generally be considered the Christian...

    When my wife was a student at Hillsdale College __ years ago (Nope! Not telling!), some student friends worked in a sausage factory nearby. They literally waded in hip boots in vast vats of various parts of cattle and pig carcasses headed for massive grinders. "I'll never eat sausage again!" was their common reaction. That's not to say (properly cooked) sausage isn't really safe, but it gives some idea how the saying arose that you never want to watch legislation being crafted because it's a lot like watching sausage being made. Well, it's increasingly clear that you don't want to...

If you’re a Trump critic, here’s further proof that he’s the RINO of RINOs, a man who’s blended nationalism, center-left economics, and Jacksonian foreign policy into something that tastes better to members of the other party than it does...

Less and less does anyone really care what leading figures – even those with huge and recent impacts on GOP history like George W.

After all, readers deserve to be told when a source has such vested interests.

    David Brocks war against the New York Times just went nuclear and the paper is responding with equal fury. Brock, the former right-wing journalist-turned-pro-Clinton crusader, takes aim at a top New York Times editor in a soon-to-be released book obtained by POLITICO. In the book, titled "Killing the Messenger: The Right-Wing Plot to Derail Hillary Clinton and Hijack Your Government, Brock accuses senior politics editor and former Washington bureau chief Carolyn Ryan of helping to turn the paper into a megaphone for conservative propaganda by unfairly targeting former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The founder of liberal watchdog groups...

    It's De Blasio Time. Radical leftist pro-crime mayor who decided to wage war on cops. Radical leftist pro-crime president who decided to wage war on cops. Radical leftist pro-crime media which decided to wage war on cops. Now murders are mysteriously rising for reasons they can't explain. It must be Global Warming. Or car insurance rates. Or maybe squirrels. I bet it's the squirrels causing all the murders. Now let's run another #BlackLivesMatter puff piece and more pro-crime propaganda about freeing drug dealers. Cities across the nation are seeing a startling rise in murders after years of declines, and few...

    Washington PITY Poppy. When I went down to Houston a few years ago to eat pizza with the former president, he was his usual gracious self, speaking fondly about President Obama and his new pal Bill Clinton. But there was one person who got dismissed with a brusque obscenity: Donald Trump. It was at the height of Trumps birther madness and Bush was disgusted by it. So I can only imagine 41s dismay and disbelief and acid flashbacks to spoiler Ross Perot now that Trump has popped up to block the path of the son who Poppy...

    THE Donald Trump phenomenon is a great gift to pundits because it can be analyzed and criticized in so many different ways. But two shorthands seem particularly useful. First, Trump is essentially using the Republican primary to run a third-party campaign, not a right-wing insurgency. Second, Trumps appeal is oddly like that of Franklin Roosevelt, in the sense that hes a rich, well-connected figure a rich New Yorker, at that whos campaigning as a traitor to his class. -snip- In certain ways this narrowing can be good for the republic. Elites can have wisdom that populists lack, certain...

    On Friday, The New York Times published an article clearly aimed at portraying conservative Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas as an unoriginal thinker, if not an outright plagiarist. But a closer look at the statistics cited in the piece, entitledClarence Thomas, a Supreme Court Justice of Few Words, Some Not His Own, indicates that The Times grossly overstated its case.In the article, Times reporter Adam Liptakcites threestudies that used linguistic software to measure what percentage of justices opinionsuse words cribbed from briefs submitted to the court.According to Liptak, Thomas used words from those briefs at an unusually high rate compared...

    Finally! Something from a New York Times reporter you can absolutely, positively believe: that no matter the mounting evidence, he will not condemn Hillary Clinton for her email malfeasance. On today's Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough repeatedly tried to get Jeremy Peters to state whether he agreed with the federal judge who yesterday declared that Hillary had not "followed government policy" regarding her email. After haplessly trying to do anything but answer the question, an exasperated Peters finally sputtered: "you want, you want me to indict and damn Hillary? I'm not going to do that." View the video...

    Claiming the Quran's support, the Islamic State codifies sex slavery in conquered regions of Iraq and Syria and uses the practice as a recruiting tool. QADIYA, Iraq -- In the moments before he raped the 12-year-old girl, the Islamic State fighter took the time to explain that what he was about to do was not a sin. Because the preteen girl practiced a religion other than Islam, the Quran not only gave him the right to rape her -- it condoned and encouraged it, he insisted. He bound her hands and gagged her. Then he knelt beside the bed and...

    The New York Times is playing the race card on Donald Trump. Surprise! In a front page story on Friday the so-called "paper of record" headlined the surging GOP presidential this way: "Donald Trump's Instinct for Racially Charged Rhetoric, Before His Presidential Bid." So, you might ask. What are Times readers about to discover in this latest liberal media hit piece on The Donald? We've now been through the media manufactured Trump/McCain crisis. In the aftermath his poll numbers went up, not down, as almost universally predicted by all with the solitary exception of Rush Limbaugh. Rush shrewdly understood that...
