  • The Early Betting Lines for 2016: What the nation’s top horse race looks like now.

    National Journal ^ | March 7, 2015 | Charlie Cook
    A question I often am asked is: "Who would you bet on to win the presidency?" Personally, I don't bet on politics, but here's my current take on the 2016 presidential race—with, of course, the caveat that we don't know which campaigns will turn out the best in terms of organization, strategy, tactics, or execution, much less which candidates will step on land mines along the way. The Democratic nomination appears fairly straightforward. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is now the prohibitive favorite. If her early stumbles during her book tour, or remarks like the one she made about...
  • David Horowitz: Democratic Party Will Disappear From the Political Scene

    NewsMax ^ | 11/19/2010 | Jim Meyers, with Kathleen Walter
    Conservative activist and best-selling author David Horowitz tells Newsmax that the Democratic Party has been “seized by a religious cult” of leftists and will go the way of the 19th-century Whig Party — disappearing from the political scene. He also declares that giving terrorist suspects the rights of American citizens and trying them in civilian courts is “a form of national suicide” and says the tea party movement is a “huge development” that will keep Republicans true to conservative principles. [Snip] Asked about the political problems the Democrats face in the wake of their poor showing in the midterm elections,...

    Breitbart Big Government ^ | January 8, 2015 | Henry Woodfin Grady II
    n the just-completed 2024 presidential election, the Republican Party has won the White House for a third consecutive time—only the third instance in a century that the GOP has managed this feat. So it’s worth pausing over the origins and causes of this political achievement—this Republican “triple play.” In particular, we might ask: What additional political force has given the GOP this newfound political muscle? After all, from 1992 to 2012, the GOP had lost four of six presidential elections—and five of six in the popular vote. And yet the Republican presidential victories of 2016, 2020, and 2024 cannot be...

    WorldNetDaily ^ | December 28, 2014 | Ellen Ratner
    I’ve compiled a list of some 2015 predictions from the staff at Talk Radio News Service. Justin Duckham is the deputy bureau chief and White House correspondent. Justin predicts a push for a progressive tea-party-like movement. Justin also says, the early seeds of the tea party were sown in 2008 by conservatives who did not have control of Congress, had a lame-duck president as the figurehead of their party and a presidential candidate that didn’t reflect their values. Democrats are now in a similar position, and it would make sense for die hard progressives to take similar steps. I also...

    The year gone by was marked by a tangle of stories involving midterm elections, grand juries and scandalous outfits worn by Sasha and Malia Obama. No need for a tedious yearend recap. Here instead is a precap of news certain to break in 2015: JAN. 1 – President Obama ushers in the New Year with a passel of executive orders. In one action likely to anger Republicans, the president announces that Mark Udall of Colorado and Kay Hagan of North Carolina, along with other defeated Democrats, will not be forced to leave the Senate for three years. “We must deal...

    Prediction: even if HealthCare.gov is fixed by the end of the month (unlikely), Obamacare is going to be repealed well in advance of next year’s election. And if the website continues to fail, the push for repeal—from endangered Democrats—will occur very rapidly. The website is a sideshow: the real action is the number of people and businesses who are losing their health plans or having to pay a lot more. Fixing the website will only delay the inevitable. It is important to remember why it was so important for Obama to promise repeatedly that “if you like your health insurance/doctor,...

    Ever since leading the Boston Red Sox to victory in the 2007 World Series, Josh Beckett had been a mainstay of the teamÂ’s pitching rotation. But when he hobbled off the mound with an ankle injury on September 5, 2011, the Red Sox faithful took the news in stride. After all, their team was the hottest in baseball. The previous winter, the Sox had acquired two of the sportÂ’s most sought-after players, outfielder Carl Crawford and first baseman Adrian Gonzalez. The acquisitions led the Boston Herald to declare the team the TOP SOX SQUAD OF ALL TIME before it had...

    Lady Margaret Thatcher was well-known throughout the free world for her fierce conservatism and her opposition to the “Evil Empire,” two noble qualities that separated her from the rest of her U.K. colleagues. But did you know that she also had some frighteningly accurate economic predictions? In her two autobiographies, “The Downing Street Years” and “The Path To Power,” she wrote about how she planned to argue against the EMU (Economic and Monetary Union), the Telegraph’s Peter Oborne notes. In her anti-EMU arguments, as pointed out by Business Insider’s Joe Weisenthal and Rob Wile point out, Thatcher “outlined the problems...

    Yup. That’s right. A landslide for Romney approaching the magnitude of Obama’s against McCain. That’s my prediction. On Sunday, we changed our clocks. On Tuesday, we’ll change our president. Romney will win the states McCain carried in 2008, plus: Florida, Indiana, Virginia, North Carolina, Colorado, Iowa, Ohio, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Minnesota. In the popular vote, Romney will win by more than 5 points. The Obama campaign made the following key mistakes: • It bet the farm on negative ads in swing states. It didn’t realize that Mitt’s convention speech and the three debates would give him the chance...

    Fundamentals usually prevail in American elections. That’s bad news for Barack Obama. True, Americans want to think well of their presidents, and many think it would be bad if Americans were perceived as rejecting the first black president. But it’s also true that most voters oppose Obama’s major policies and consider the very sluggish economic recovery unsatisfactory — Friday’s job report showed an unemployment uptick. Also, both national and target-state polls show that independents — voters who don’t identify themselves as Democrats or Republicans — break for Romney. That might not matter if Democrats outnumbered Republicans by 39 to 32...

    Some milestone moments in journalism converged 60 years ago on election night in the run between Republican Dwight D. Eisenhower and Democratic Illinois Gov. Adlai Stevenson. It was the first coast-to-coast television broadcast of a presidential election. Walter Cronkite anchored his first election night broadcast for CBS. And it was the first time computers were brought in to help predict the outcome. That event in 1952 helped usher in the computer age, but it wasn't exactly love at first sight. The 'Electronic Brain' CBS' Charles Collingwood was the reporter assigned to UNIVAC, one of the world's first commercial computers. "This...

    This past Monday, one of our research analysts - Jason Cimpl - caused quite a buzz on our Web site, as well as in our office, with a provocative article on the November presidential election.  I thought it important to follow up Jason's insights from an alternative prospective … one where speculators put their money directly at risk on election outcomes.  Let's face it, polls are meaningless. The questions are leading and the polls themselves are often commissioned by the two major political parties. Each party is motivated to put its candidates in a favorable light, so party-commissioned polls will...

LA Times: Campaign 2012 may have spent weeks stuck on discussions of Mitt Romney's taxes, Joe Biden's rant on putting "y'all in chains" and "legitimate rape" and abortion, but a pair of Colorado political scientists believe the struggling economy will still be the dominant issue and will pave the way for a Romney victory.

    Yes, there is still four months to go, and an electoral map prediction seems ill-advised and premature... But what the heck... I based my projections on a modified RCP poll average: I included only recent polls of likely voters, ignoring RV polls. I also used a more conservative version of the "incumbent rule" for the undecideds in these LV polls. Certain theory holds that 80% of undecided voters will break for the challenger. For this analysis, I was more conservative and assume that 65% of undecideds will ultimately vote for Romney. Based on these criteria and assumptions, I've arrived at...

    I’ve abstained up until now from making any predictions on how the Obamacare cases will be decided. But I’m now ready to offer my own reading of the tea leaves. Specifically, the fact that Justice Scalia read his dissent from the bench in the Arizona immigration case leads me to believe that the Court will invalidate the individual mandate by a 5-4 vote. Let me explain the logical links (and expose their potential weaknesses): 1. As I understood it when I was a law clerk for Justice Scalia twenty years ago, there was an etiquette at the Court that any...

Smeared in red atop the Huffington Post were, “Obamacare on the Brink” and “Disaster.” James Carville now claims that Democrats will “win” if the Court overturns the mandate. Conservatives, meanwhile, are practically dancing in the street at the prospect of an unconstitutional ruling, which once seemed a remote possibility....

Chuck Schumer (D) to take over helm of the party, even if Reid keeps his seat. Durbin said he promised Reid he wouldn't discuss possible changes in party leadership until after the elections. Durbin's name also is circulating as a possible choice to take Reid's place regardless of the outcome on Tuesday.

    NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- Is "all hell" about to break loose? One veteran letter thinks so -- and it predicted the Crash of 2008. Unlike almost everyone else, Arch Crawford's Crawford Perspectives had a fabulous 2008. ( See Jan. 9, 2009, column.) And when I last checked in with it in early 2010, Crawford was predicting a mid-summer massacre ( See Jan. 14 column.) Well? Now, in its monthly issue published in early July, Crawford predicts "ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE" -- beginning, as a matter of fact, on Monday July 26, 2010. Crawford means it. The letter has been 200%...

    With Europe on the verge of economic collapse, what about all those popular predictions that the European Union would become the world's political powerhouse, giving rise to the endtimes prophecies of a world dictator known to Bible students as the Antichrist? Joel Richardson, author of a bestselling book on Bible prophecy, says atheists will have a field day mocking Christians for the incorrect interpretations about the last days. When ""The Islamic Antichrist" was released last fall, it immediately zoomed to the top of the religious charts at Amazon and the No. 1 spot among all books at Scribd – an...

    (This is from the middle, but go to the link and read it all.) Get those "sudden stop" plans in place - NOW. If you're in a big city you're in big trouble. Find friends or relatives that aren't and see what you can do about a place to go where you have a reasonable shot at avoiding the worst of this. Look, all-out civil unrest (or worse) is a low-probability event but if you get trapped in a big city and the worst comes that city will go feral within hours and become a free-fire zone. What's worse, many...

    Riyadh, Saudi Arabia -- Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) attacked vital Saudi Arabian oil infrastructure today in a move analysts fear will escalate the growing conflict in the Persian Gulf and further deepen the worldwide oil crisis. Several Iranian surface-to-surface missiles struck the Saudi Arabian oil processing facility at Abqaiq at approximately 3:30 a.m. Iranian authorities claimed the strike was in retaliation for Saudi Arabia granting the Israeli Air Force (IAF) permission to cross through its airspace en route to bombing Iranian nuclear facilities two weeks ago. "They committed an act of war in aiding the Zionist attack and...

    Just over two weeks have passed since Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed into law the Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act, or SB 1070. It is otherwise known simply as Arizona’s tough new anti-illegal immigration law. The primary goal of the law is to help law enforcement officials identify and charge foreigners who are in the state of Arizona illegally (otherwise known as illegal immigrants). However, there have been some secondary effects of the law which will also benefit the state of Arizona in a way that should cause other states to emulate its provisions. In the world...
  • Hillary Clinton will be in London for State of the Union [SEASON OF THE WITCH 2012!]

    Madam Secretary sends her regrets. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton got a pass last week from President Obama to skip Wednesday night's State of the Union speech. (We had heard she begged to be excused, but apparently it didn't come to that.) Seems there's an important international meeting Wednesday in London on battling radicalization in Yemen, and then another, long-planned conference there Thursday on development and security in Afghanistan. But London does not qualify as an "undisclosed location." So this means there will be two Cabinet officers not attending the speech: Clinton and the designated holdback in case of...

    I don't know who will win the Super Bowl or the World Series.  I imagine the economy will remain flat, struggling under weighty government regulation and taxation with uncertainty added in for good measure, but I really don't know. This I do Know:  The liberal establishment will do their damnedest to splinter usIt's the only shot liberals have at stopping the conservative onslaught.  The press will shine a white hot spot spot light upon every microscopic crack and fissure within the conservative movement.  These minuscule differences will be played up into grand canyons and unbridgeable chasms.  Liberals will be driving...
