    MADISON — Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker denies he's a career politician — even though he has been in elected office since he was 25 years old and first ran for office when he was 22. The 47-year-old Republican presidential contender said in an interview with CNBC, released Tuesday, that he is "just a normal guy" and rejects the career politician label despite being in politics for most of his adult life. "A career politician, in my mind, is somebody who's been in Congress for 25 years," Walker said.

    The Donald and the Demagogues Democracies that trade substance for charisma don’t last. Trump is America’s answer to Hugo Chávez. By Bret Stephens Aug. 31, 2015 7:34 p.m. ET If by now you don’t find Donald Trump appalling, you’re appalling. If you have reached physical maturity and still chuckle at Mr. Trump’s pubescent jokes about Rosie O’Donnell or Heidi Klum, you will never reach mental maturity. If you watched Mr. Trump mock fellow candidate Lindsey Graham’s low poll numbers and didn’t cringe at the lack of class, you are incapable of class. If you think we need to build new...

    In my last column, I looked at the possibility of two impossible things -- impossible things in the sense used by Alice and the Red Queen -- happening in the already turbulent 2016 presidential cycle. Here I'll look at another: the possibility that the partisan division lines that have endured with little change for two decades might suddenly shift and change. This has happened before. History teaches two lessons pointing in opposite directions: Partisan divisions can stay the same for a long time. And they can change suddenly and without much warning. There's no question that partisan divisions have shifted...

    Fake Twitter followers abound among the U.S. presidential candidates as they gear up for the election in 2016. And Hillary Clinton isn’t the only candidate with more than a million of them. GOP frontrunner Donald Trump also has well over a million fake followers. Other candidates have them, too, but not as many (in large part because they don’t have as many followers, period).

    Those who teach in higher education are relatively OK with some religious groups, according to a study based on a 2012 online national survey that drew 464 complete responses. Asked to assess religious groups on a “feeling thermometer” of 1 to 100, Jewish people, mainline Protestants and Catholics all achieved an average score of 65 or higher, researchers led by University of North Texas sociologist George Yancey reported in an online article in the journal Sociology of Religion. Next to the bottom, just slightly above fundamentalists, were Protestant evangelicals with an average score of 48. Based on the rankings and...

    LONDON -- It's remarkable how often British and American politics resemble each other; often only the accents differ. Following a disastrous defeat at the hands of Prime Minister David Cameron's Tories, the Labour Party appears ready to elect as its next leader one Jeremy Corbyn, a hardcore leftist, self-described socialist and member of Parliament, who recently compared ISIS to the U.S. military and has called the terrorist group Hamas a "friend." Corbyn also wants to renationalize some British industries and increase taxes on "the rich," who are already paying more than half their earnings in income taxes, as well as...

    The GOP is panicking. And it should be. Conservatives are sending an angry unambiguous message to the party. The message can be read not only in the rise of Donald Trump, but also in the rise of Ben Carson. Republican voters are choosing candidates who don’t talk or seem like politicians. They have lost all faith in the Republican Party. And it’s hard to blame them. Conservatives poured time, energy and money into a party that promised to counter Obama and take back America. The GOP controls both houses of Congress and conservatives have nothing to show for it. Support...

    To the courageous headline in yesterday’s “Libero” (“The Pope’s Party.

The other day Matteo Salvini* rightly noted this in the polemics he had with Monsignor Galantino. Plus, the very caustic interview with Giovanni Sartori - the king of political analysts - helped clarify it all: “For me this Vatican that utters such nonsense is a disaster.

    I get paid to listen to people (mostly politicians) talk at length while saying as little as possible. They often hide behind mind-numbing words to obscure what they really mean. When I hear a politician promise "transparency," he or she most likely means it as much as Barack Obama meant that his vaunted "most transparent administration in history" would be forthcoming and accountable. When candidates talk up "comprehensive immigration reform," they don't want to reform immigration law; they want to gut immigration law. When pols talk about leadership, they're usually telling voters exactly what they want to hear. At a...

The actual numbers do not bear this out, and police are in a position of being accused of racial discrimination no matter what they do. This week alone, a black woman tried screaming rape when pulled over, and was only found to be lying when the dash cam video showed nothing like that had occurred. This same black woman also was a professor at the local...

    PRINCETON, N.J. -- Despite the significant public attention on confrontations between black citizens and police in Missouri, Maryland and New York over the past year, blacks in 2015 express virtually the same opinions about being mistreated by police as they did in 2013. This year, 18% of adult blacks say there has been an occasion the last 30 days when they personally felt they were treated unfairly in dealings with police, which is virtually the same as the 17% recorded in 2013. This is down from as high as 25% in 2004.

    It began normally. I woke up yet one more time after a night's sleep---"sleep:" the little brother of death. I'm seventy, so, I'm always surprised anymore when I actually wake up alive. I confirmed I was still alive. I farted, long and loud. It went on forever; I felt my body shrink; I thought I might deflate like a balloon. It was an old man's relief. But, yes, it proved I was still alive: I fart; therefore I am. I managed to haul myself in a kind of situp onto the edge of the bed using both arms and my...

    Obama Hater Stole Vibrator From Orland Lover's Lane: Cops The Harvey man shoved the vibrator down his pants and left the store, police said. By Joseph Hosey (Patch Staff) August 6, 2015 An Obama-hating Harvey man shoved a vibrator down his pants and slipped outside the Orland Park Lover’s Lane, but didn’t get far before he was caught by the cops, police said. An employee of the 159th Street sex shop reportedly tipped the law to a man walking around the store with a vibrator stuffed down his pants. The cops arrived just in time to find 44-year-old Christopher Hucko...
  • New NBC Poll Shows Ted Cruz at No. 2, But the Sunday Shows Stiffed Him

    As a general matter, presidential poll numbers this far before an election, especially with a field as large as the current Republican one, do not tell us much. But the NBC News poll out this evening following the first 2016 Republican presidential debates — notably showing Sen. Ted Cruz surging to the number two spot in the field with 13 percent support among likely Republican primary voters — may reveal something worthy of interest. If you watch the Sunday shows as I do not just for Twitter fodder, but as a proxy for how the (bipartisanly progressive) political establishment sees...

    Sarah Palin, unlike many of the GOP presidential candidates who made the trip to Cleveland for the Fox News/Facebook debates, has nearly single-handedly carved a new foundation for conservative resurgence since 2009. Sure 2009 may seem like a long time ago in political seasons, but can you imagine what the state of affairs would be in local, state and national conservative political circles if Palin had not arrived on the scene to breathe life and vitality into conservatism.

    We all know that main reason 17 Republican Candidates were being showcased in the Fox News Debates was to expose the foibles of Liberal Democrats and position themselves as the best candidate to defeat them. Uh, that’s not exactly the way things turned out. For the first hour of the debates, the Fox News moderators didn’t even utter the word, Hillary or Barack. No Hillary Clinton. No Barack Obama or any other Democrat names for that matter. Watching the debates was a bit surreal almost leading the viewers to believe that the main battle is one of Republicans battling Republicans...

    Mild-mannered retired brain surgeon Ben Carson might just have had the biggest zinger in the GOP Debates. To many, his comment went under radar, but to others he showed his deep wisdom in his perspective in this Presidential race. Instead knocking fellow Republicans, he focused instead on Hillary Clinton. When asked how he felt about possibly facing big bad powerful Hillary as the Democrat nominee, he quipped, “That would be a dream come true.” Dr. Carson’s logic was unassailable and surprising no other candidate had such a brilliant answer. He said Hillary Clinton is such a train wreck that she...

    Seventeen GOP candidates for president of the United States paraded in front of us in Cleveland on August 6th. The establishment media crowed enthusiastically to the viewers about the import of this gathering to our lives as Americans. Chris Wallace and his fellow questioners milked the affair for all the drama they could squeeze from it. Unfortunately this two-tiered debate was just one more exercise in the miserable irrelevancy of the media’s handling of “political affairs” in America today. With each passing year the nation drifts deeper into economic ineptitude, a macabre government intervenes further into all the nooks and...
