    Mr. Trump, why do you blame Republicans for the 2008 economic crisis when it was caused by Democrat policies, and if you don't really know what caused that crash, why should we trust you to help steer the economy in the future?
  • Navy PROSECUTING Chattanooga Hero! They should give him a MEDAL!

    Have you ever heard the phrase, "No good deed goes unpunished?" Well, leave it up to Obama's Navy to prosecute the hero of Chattanooga, rather than give him a medal. As unthinkable is it may be, after Lieutenant Commander Timothy White shot and killed Muslim Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez, keeping Mohammad from murdering more unarmed military men, he is now being punished. I guess Lieutenant Commander White didn't get the Obama memo that killing mass-murdering Muslims is taboo in the military of which he is commander in chief. This is according to Allen West, a former congressman and retired U.S. Army...

  • Why I Think Scott Walker Would Make a Great Foreign-Policy President

    National Review ^ | 2 August 2015 | Kim Holmes
    Over the past couple of months, I’ve had the opportunity to discuss foreign-policy issues with Wisconsin governor Scott Walker. Beforehand, I didn’t know him personally and so didn’t know what to expect. Well, here is what I found: Walker has the potential to be a great foreign-policy president. Here’s why. The first thing I learned is that Scott Walker is eager to talk about foreign policy. He relishes discussing the ins and outs of an issue and shows a curiosity that frankly I wish many of our senators had. He engages precisely at the level a president should, asking tough...

Hard work, honesty. Respect, a willingness to discuss differences have all fallen away. There is at the present time an elite that does not pay attention to the governed. The feeling in politics now is that we work for them, and they do not need the consent of governed to tell us how to live our live. From the Supreme Court...

The before she gets to eat it, Obama forces her to give it to someone else. She opines that it's her choice who to give ice cream to, if anyone at all. Melody also questioned why Obama would reward Iran by giving them over $100 billion in assets back, enough to build hundreds of nuclear bombs.

    Hillary Clinton talks of cracking down on the gig economy. Donald Trump speaks of telling American corporations where they can and can’t do business abroad. Bernie Sanders says we have too many deodorant choices. They all speak about immigrants as if it were 1863. What the heck are these people talking about? More and more, that’s the response many people have to the current-day political speeches and rhetoric. It’s a hotly contested election, somewhat like 2008, but this time around, public engagement is low, reports Pew. That’s no surprise, really.

Speaking to about 75 mostly Puerto Rican religious leaders in east Orange County, Florida's former governor said the island's financial crisis must be addressed. "I think we ought to have structured recasting of their debt and structured recasting of their social obligations," Bush said.

    Former President Jimmy Carter has said in an interview that he does not believe Jesus Christ would support abortion in most cases, identifying the "only conflict" he's had between his political duties and Christian faith. "I have never believed that Jesus would be in favor of abortion, unless it was the result of rape or incest, or the mother's life was in danger. That's been the only conflict I've had in my career between political duties and Christian faith," Carter told The New York Times in an interview posted on Friday. The Democrat made the comments in response to a...

    Sex might very well sell, but so does separation. America has long had a love affair with stories of divorce, breakups and infidelity. We eat it up like chocolate cake, feasting on the drama of others’ heartbreak. Nothing whets the public’s appetite like a scandalous affair, and judging by the most common tabloid headlines, you’d think that all we want is to see a couple falter and fail. We care more about cheating than loyalty — anniversaries may be sweet, but they sure don’t sell. Couples who make it are just so . . . boring. But Andy Grammer wants none of...

A lot of this stuff should have been said a long time ago by other conservative politicians and none would do so. So, why now...and by THIS guy with no real record of being a conservative? It is beginning to look like he is trying to divide the conservative electorate. The Democrats are all united behind evil causes and they stick together like glue. We could be under invasion...

    The latest media-generated "blowup" is from The Donald saying that McCain isn't a real war hero. Well, he's not folks. You don't become a war hero by being captured by the enemy. You might become one through what you did before or after that, but the act of being captured itself doesn't qualify because you don't choose that. McCain is not a war hero because there was nothing particularly valorous about his service. Moreover, and at least as important, what he did to his first wife was viperous, not valorous. Carol McCain is a war hero. She stuck with her...

    No political nice speak here, and it drives the establishment insane It started with presidential candidate Donald Trump’s comments on illegal immigration, which drew huge criticism from the Republican establishment and the media. The unfortunate murder of Kate Steinle recently by an illegal in San Francisco quieted some of the criticism, but the debate then shifted to the legality of sanctuary cities to avoid acknowledging that there was some merit to Trump’s comments. And now Donald Trump has challenged the “war hero” designation of Arizona Senator John McCain just because he was a prisoner of war. Aside from the fact...

Trump has tapped into “some anger” in the state over the conditions at the border, McCain told The New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza in an article published Thursday. “It’s very bad,” the Republican senator said. “This performance with our friend out in Phoenix is very hurtful to me,” McCain said. “Because...

    Frank Bruni, the spent New York Times op-ed columnist, doesn't care for GOP presidential candidate Scott Walker. That's his prerogative, of course, and it's a lock that he'll furrow his brow, like so many other liberals, and vote for Hillary Clinton in next year's election. (I'm discounting the euphoric "boom" for Bernie Sanders that's jazzing up "progressives" and amusing journalists this summer.) And there's no reason to expect that Bruni would write much positive about Walker: the Wisconsin governor is anti-union, anti-Obamacare, makes pitches to both mainstream and socially conservative Republicans and has a "newfound affection for ethanol" now that...

Factually, I’m as uncertain and perhaps more skeptical as the next person. However, given that Trump has actually done things he normally wouldn’t do if this was a mere publicity stunt (ie. stock divestitures, removal of conflicts etc.), for the sake of intellectual argument, I’m going to assume, cautiously yet optimistically, he’s in it to win it. Argument #1 – After all, he’s been a democrat, an independent, a Republican, and well, I have...

    The other day a white man referred to Lt Col Allen West's Conservatism as "Stockholm Syndrome." It seems that some white liberals believe a Black man cannot choose his own philosophies and therefore these particular people are the property of the Democratic party. Do you find the concept of the Liberal/"progressive"/Democratic Party owning a particular race of people disturbing? I most certainly do! I'll never be "property." I find myself disgusted by those who chose "benevolent bondage" over dangerous liberty. I feel hostility towards those who would usurp the freedom and autonomy of those who would choose liberty. “If you...

    The Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage has sent a shockwave through the Christian community. Many are wondering how it came to be that a nation built on the freedom of religion is now forcing people of faith to choose between obeying the government and following their religious convictions. For an answer to that question they need not look further than their own churches. For several decades, Christians have accepted the premise that politics has no place within the churches. Whether this is rooted in an extreme interpretation of the concept of the separation of church and state or pastors’...

In a letter to FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler, Sanders -- along with Democratic Sens.

    In 2012, the state of Michigan distributed $2.96 billion in assistance to lower income families through what is probably the government's best known welfare program — food stamps. However, the public is less aware of two small state welfare programs that distribute cash subsidies though what may seem an unlikely vehicle, the state income tax code. These are called the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and the Homestead Property Tax Credit (HPTC). According to the Michigan Department of Treasury, in 2012 the two programs redistributed a combined $245 million to individuals with very low wage income and families with limited...

    Bernie Sanders will never be president. But unless Hillary changes her strategy – and soon – he can still wind up toppling her. Something remarkable is happening in American politics. For the first time in our history, a socialist is running a close second and gaining ground on the frontrunner in a presidential race. Anyway you look at it, Senator Bernie Sanders is making history and may very well play a deciding role in who will be the next president. How real is the Sanders movement? Well, at this point in his campaign in 2007, Barack Obama had 180,000 donors...

    Conservative Review ^ | 07/07/15 | Dan Bongino
    There is No Done in Politics Recently I was hosting a show on a Washington D.C. talk radio station and a frustrated voter called and told me he was "done." The caller went through an impromptu list of terrible policy decisions by the Obama Administration in the economic, healthcare, regulatory, and spending realm – in addition to social issues and law enforcement arenas. He culminated his rant by expressing his desire to throw in the towel. The man's fear and apprehension was unmistakable, but his response deeply troubled me. The Left owns our culture, academic institutions, the entertainment industry, and...

    Is "The Donald" in for the long hall, or is he going to "Pull Out" at the last minute -- like he has done so many times before? http://www.theguardian.com/world/2011/may/16/donald-trump-us-presidential-race I don't think he has demonstrated that he is in for the long haul. Therefore I have taken the liberty to give him the handle of Trumpus Interruptus! I confess that I was excited (as was his collective base) when he announced in 2012 that he was considering a run for the republican nomination for President of the United States. I was thus willing to overlook the fact that he was...

    Trump Facebook Site ^ | July 1, 2015 | Donald Trump
    This quote is from a statement put out by Trump concerning Macy's. He nails it. "Both Macy's and NBC totally caved at the first sight of potential difficulty with special interest groups who are nothing more than professional agitators, who are not looking out for the people they purport to represent, but only for themselves. It is people like this who are actually running our country because our leaders are weak and ineffective." There is so much truth in that statement, especially the last line. Nobody stands up to those morons and the basically make policy by screaming and whining...
