    My office is holding its annual Summer Barbecue in a couple of weeks. Calling it a 'barbecue' is a bit extravagant, as all we do is cook hot dogs and hamburgers on a propane grill ;-) and the stars of the show are usually the wonderful side dishes that folks from many different ethnic cuisines bring to the party. This year it will be a much smaller affair, with our 'grill master' out on knee-replacement surgery, other staff leaving for new jobs, and lots of folks away for Summer. But I have to come up with a side dish! I...
  • Anti-Capitalism, Bernie Sanders, and the Democratic Party

    While interviewing Bernie Sanders on "Meet The Press" on October 11, 2015 Chuck Todd asked the following question: Are you a capitalist? Bernie answered No. Im a democratic socialist. To properly understand his answer, it is helpful to go back 104 years to the candidacy of Eugene V. Debs who, in 1912, ran for president on the Socialist Party ticket. In that election, there were four candidates for President: William Howard Taft (Republican), Theodore Roosevelt (Progressive), Woodrow Wilson (Democrat), and Eugene V. Debs (Socialist). On some of the platform planks, there was an overlap between the Socialists and the Progressives....

    American Thinker ^ | May 31, 2016 | C. Edmund Wright
    Donald Trump might have written The Art of the Deal, but the title he should peruse today is Dale Carnegies How to Win Friends and Influence People. His more vocal supporters, and by that I mean those who act out on the internet precisely as Donald does on the stump, should pick up a copy as well. Both the candidate and his hard-core supporters have missed the idea that it is the job of the winner to unite a party. Oddly the Trumpists defend their offensive and insulting demeanor by saying that neither John McCain nor Mitt Romney reached out...

    A Lexington woman is sentenced to 20 years in prison after a 15-year-old boy dies of alcohol poisoning at a party at her home. 15-year-old Nicholas Faught died at the party allegedly hosted by Tonya Moss and Justin Moore in March of 2015. At the sentencing, the victim's mother gave her testimony, the whole time choking back tears and looking straight at Moss saying she will never understand what her family is going through. The defendant also gave her testimony, claiming she did not know about the party and thought her son was only having a bonfire with a few...

After all, some neocons are already publicly and actively throwing their support behind Hillary. While this undoubtably represents a major turning point in U.S. political history, many pundits have yet to appreciate that the exact same thing is happening within the Democratic Party. Its just not completely obvious yet. While it might sound strange, a coronation of Hillary Clinton in the...

  • Paladino: Trump Absolutely Should Launch Third Party Bid If Denied Nomination

    Businessman and Republican activist Carl Paladino in a radio interview Monday said Donald Trump absolutely should launch an independent bid for president if he is denied the Republican nomination at the July convention in Cleveland. Absolutely, Paladino said in an interview with WCNYs The Capitol Pressroom. If cheated, you fight back. That would be the end of the Republican Party, by the way. Paladino, a Buffalo real-estate developer and prominent Trump supporter in New York, was the GOP nominee for governor in 2010.

    A survey has found that tens of thousands of voters, including Demi Moore and other celebrities, have mistakenly registered as members of a conservative minor political party in California in a mix-up over its name, a newspaper reported Sunday. The Los Angeles Times (http://bit.ly/23G88sX ) said that a telephone survey of 500 members of the American Independent Party found nearly 3 of 4 people did not realize they had enrolled in a political party that opposes abortion rights and same sex marriage and calls for building a fence along the U.S. border.

    Conservative Review ^ | 04/15/16 | Robert Eno
    The conventional wisdom is that Donald Trump will win the New York primary with well over 50 percent and win nearly all of the Empire States 95 delegates this upcoming Tuesday. While this is certainly a possibility, there is also a chance, and not a far-fetched one that Trump will finish with under 50 percent of the vote. If that happens, it will signal a seismic shift in the race for the Republican nomination. A look at recent polling makes it seem almost certain that Trump will finish with over 50 percent of the vote. The current New York Real...

    The IRS says it has stopped targeting the tea party but three years later, the tax agency is still holding on to the sensitive information it pried from the conservative groups through invasive questions, and officials are even vowing to make the answers public. Groups caught up in the scandal say that is proof the targeting is continuing, and they want the IRS to expunge the information or, at the very least, to make sure it is never released. Obama administration officials insist they have stopped targeting but say the groups are at fault for following the misguided IRS...

    The Republican party is not winnning friends or influencing people by saying to the Republican voters in 2016 your vote no long counts.  Think about it!  The popular vote has always been honored by the Delegates unless it was very, very close like in 1952.  We have a public election.  We have all this money being spent.  We have false advertising that say things like, “go vote”, “one man one vote”, “one woman one vote”, “every vote counts”, “you decide 2008”, “you decide 2012” and “you decide 2016”. Now because the Establishment candidates have lost in the Republican Primary....  They...

    The First Time Party Bigwigs Tried to Stop a Front-Runner From Becoming President It BackfiredBig-timeWhat the GOP can learn from the story of Andrew Jackson in 1824. America has never seen a presidential candidate like this before. Detractors point to his lack of political experience, his poor grasp of policy, his alleged autocratic leanings and his shady past. They believe this man without much of a political platform (but with interesting hair) has neither the qualifications nor the temperament to be president. Yet in defiance of conventional wisdom, he is leading his three main rivals in the race for the...

It seemed likely that the unpopular President Lyndon Johnson would suffer a great embarrassment or even a primary loss after Robert Kennedy entered the race, prompting him to declare that he would neither seek nor accept his partys nomination for another term. The Kennedy surge was cut short when he was shot and killed in a California hotel.

    Enough, Donna Brazile told White House political director David Simas the day after the midterms. Democrats are in worse shape than when President Barack Obama came into office the number of seats they have in Congress, the number of governors, a party approval rating thats fallen behind Republicans for the first time in recent history, enthusiasm, energy. The White House, Brazile said when she came to meet with Simas, has got to focus for the next two years on getting the party into better shape, and Obamas the best and most effective person to get out the message. As...

    Jon Huntsman Sr., father of former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr. and a self-described lifelong Republican, argued that the tea party has ruined the Republican Party, and that the GOP doesnt stand a chance unless someone like his son is elected. The tea party has completely captivated and ruined the Republican Party today and theyll show this in 2016, Huntsman Sr. said last week, Yahoo News reported. Unless a Jeb Bush comes in or John Huntsman Jr., the Republicans dont have a prayer. The Chinjunior Mr. Huntsman, who unsuccessfully sought the GOP nomination in 2012, now serves as the U.S....
  • The 2014 Democratic Freshman Class... And The Republicans

    Yesterday, Limbaugh said that Republicans were elected "to stop the Democrats. Republicans were not elected to govern." Democrats, on the other hand, are elected to govern. (SNIP) A quick scan of some of the newest members of the House shows just how extreme this latest crop of Tea Party Republican members of Congress truly are. From Georgia to Maine, Virginia to Wisconsin, Illinois to Iowa, extreme Tea Party Republicans have been elected to seats in the U.S. House of Representatives. (SNIP) Meanwhile, Illinois Republican Mike Bost (IL-02) once had an outburst while serving in the Illinois House over a pension...

    This week, 68,000 revelers will descend on Nevada's remote Black Rock Desert. (That is, assuming the rain lets up.) They will travel from Los Angeles, London, Melbourne, Mexico City and places you've never heard of. They will take part in the temporary city that is Burning Man, and will light a giant wooden man aflame. Despite all of this, Burning Man has somehow gotten a reputation as a "green" event. But that is simply not the case. Make no mistake: Burning Man is bad for the environment.

    British diplomats in the US have been forced to apologise after revealing they were hosting a party to celebrate the anniversary of the burning of the White House. The British Embassy in Washington held a White House barbeque yesterday to mark the two hundredth anniversary of Britain capturing the US capital and setting fire to the Presidents iconic address. The Embassy even sent a message on Twitter from its official account with a photograph of a White House cake, flanked by British and American flags and surrounded by sparkler fireworks.
  • Obama Is Seen as Frustrating His Own Party

    **SNIP** But the impression the president left with Mr. Reid was clear: Capitol Hill is not my problem. To Democrats in Congress who have worked with Mr. Obama, the indifference conveyed to Mr. Reid, one of the presidents most indispensable supporters, was frustratingly familiar. In one sense, Mr. Obamas response was a reminder of what made him such an appealing figure in the first place: his almost innate aversion to the partisan squabbles that have left Americans so jaded and disgruntled with their political system. But nearly six years into his term, with his popularity at the lowest of his...
