    You’ve heard of Ready for Hillary, but now there’s Ready for Warren. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., has said over and over that she will not run for president in 2016, but that isn’t stopping her fans from encouraging her to run. A group of activists has launched the Ready for Warren campaign, asking people to sign a petition urging the Massachusetts Democrat to pursue a presidential bid. “We are Ready for Elizabeth Warren to run for President in 2016,” a statement on the website reads. “Warren is the backbone that the Democratic Party too often forgets it needs. Warren has...

    A forensic profiler whose career has included work on the double-murder case against O.J. Simpson and the Natalie Holloway disappearance says Barack Obama is confessing he’s under enormous pressure and is “slipping mentally.” “Not madness such as total loss of control mentally, but more and more drastic behavior seen in disturbed traumatized leaders,” said Andrew G. Hodges, M.D., who wrote “The Obama Confession: Secret Fear, Secret Fury.” Hodges, an expert who previously suggested Obama was revealing alarming ideas about martial law and described how the president wants “total gun control,” provided to WND an analysis of some of Obama’s recent...

    The unconstrained political warfare symbolized by House Speaker John Boehner's pledge to sue President Obama for allegedly abusing his executive authority pushes this presidency farther down a rocky road that Bill Clinton and George W. Bush would painfully recognize. In one key respect, each president's tenure has followed a similar arc. Each initially sought the White House promising to bridge the nation's widening partisan divide. Clinton pledged to transcend "brain-dead policies in both parties" with his "New Democrat" agenda. Bush declared himself a "compassionate conservative" who would govern as "a uniter, not a divider." Obama emerged with his stirring 2004...

    The 38th President of the United States, Gerald R. Ford, was born on this date in 1913 in Nebraska, and was the first person to hold the office of President of the United States without receiving any electoral votes - he had been appointed to the Vice Presidency in December, 1973 following the resignation of Spiro Agnew, and assumed the Presidency in August, 1974 following Richard Nixon's resignation. An Eagle Scout and longtime congressman from Michigan, he was also the last surviving member of the Warren Commission, which investigated the assassination of President Kennedy.

    In past columns, I've mentioned some teachers and professors that I've known who bluntly said that Ronald Reagan was the nation's worst president. It has become rather common in academia to describe the Reagan years as being filled with greed, and later, with deception in the Iran-Contra matter. Ronald Reagan's "trickle down" economic policies are dismissed in many classrooms as the very "voodoo economics" they were so termed by his onetime opponent and later vice president, George H.W. Bush. And Reagan's visible decline as a result of Alzheimer's in his later years is often implied to be a fit...

When the name of a highly regarded former governor came up, the judgment was unequivocal: “He’s just so . . . boring.” That was not intended as an endorsement. It should be. Barack Obama has been anything but boring. “May you live in exciting times” may be a fake Chinese curse, but the wisdom communicated therein is real. Thought experiment: Consider the presidency of Barack Obama from the point of view of the sort of person who...

    We all have read about Hillary's legal defense of the accused child rapist and her callous interview about the case. As I saw yet another article about it today, I realized that year in which the rapist died, 1992, was the year in which Bill Clinton was running for his first term as President and conservatives' attention was drawn to the number and nature of deaths of those people who could have said things to compromise his campaign. Does anyone know how this rapist died in 1992? Was there anything mysterious or untoward about his death?

    There's no obvious reason that Scott Walker should be president. And yet. When Scott Walker won the governorship of Wisconsin in 2010, state Democrats reacted with a collective shrug, but Tim Cullen was perhaps the least concerned of all. The retired state senator had known Walker since 1993, when the two spent a series of summer evenings sitting together on concrete benches outside a Janesville hospital that was caring for both Cullen's mother and Walker's father. The men hadn't talked politics, but they'd talked plenty, and Cullen had been impressed with, and grown fond of, the easygoing rookie assemblyman. Cullen...

Cain, in a speech at the Republican Leadership Conference here, brought up the prospect of another run toward the end of his speech.

"And I trust in God.” Cain, 68, was a brief front-runner for the GOP nomination in 2011 but...

    Political analysts say Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyhau is making desperate maneuvers to try and prevent MK Reuven Rivlin (Likud-Beytenu) from being elected president in the coming weeks. The Knesset began its summer session Monday, a session that will focus on the process of electing a president, as Shimon Peres's term nears its end. Peres's term ends in July, and a successor is to be elected by the Knesset between 30 and 90 days before then. Netanyahu reportedly is still trying to bring about a six-month postponement of the election, after failing to do so until now. Sources close to him...

    Billionaire businessman Donald Trump ditched the teleprompter at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday and received huge ovations as he slammed President Barack Obama's leadership both at home and abroad. "We have so many problems — and we have so little leadership," Trump said at the session in suburban Washington. "It's all about the leadership." He cited China's move this week to devalue its currency against the American dollar, as well as Russian President Vladimir Putin's assault on Ukraine as examples of the United States' decline as a world power. "The reason why they're doing it is because our...

    Scammed, an eBook from Amazon's Kindle Store, bears an eerie resemblance to today's political scene—the author weaves the president's eligibility issues into the plot. In spite of a media blackout, a sheriff and an ex-army doctor take on the occupant of the White House. At every opportunity, the president's supporters try to present the issue as a conspiracy theory—but that is just another scam.

    On this date in 1801, the fourth presidential election in the United States' history was finally decided. Presidential electors (which at that time could vote for two candidates) had cast 73 ballots each for Thomas Jefferson and Aaron Burr. This caused the election to be decided in the House of Representatives, which cast 36 ballots in 6 days. For the first 35 ballots, Jefferson won 8 states - one short of the required 9. Finally, on the 36th ballot, representatives from Maryland and Vermont changed their votes, giving Jefferson 10 states and the win. The Constitution was amended in 1804...

    More than 200 years after Alexander Hamilton’s death, an online coupon company has given the Founding Father a historic promotion. Deal website Groupon launched a Presidents Day tie-in of $10 off when customers purchase a $40 coupon for a local business. The problem is, the promotion honors President Alexander Hamilton -- who was never president of the United States. According to MyFoxNY.com, the promo calls Hamilton "undeniably one of our greatest presidents and most widely recognized for establishing the country's financial system." Hamilton, the nation's first secretary of the Treasury, was killed by Vice President Aaron Burr in a pistol...

    U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan are now forced to fight a two-fronted war. Before each deployment, these soldiers understand fully that day after day they will do battle against relentless terrorists with shifting loyalties and unspeakable hatred. But what none of them could have foreseen was the killing field that would open from their rear: the Continental United States. Our government’s incessant tightening of already restrictive ROE (Rules of Engagement), compounded by the failed COIN (Counterinsurgency) strategy—also known as “winning hearts and minds”—has made an otherwise primitive enemy formidable. Our best and brightest come home in body bags as politicians and...

    Every conservative by now should have noticed that February has become Ronald Reagan Month for Republicans. The man’s birthday was last week, February 6, the forerunner to Lincoln’s birthday (February 12), Washington’s birthday (February 22), and President’s Day (February 17). Throughout the nation, county and statewide Republican groups have been changing their longtime annual Lincoln Day dinners into Reagan Day dinners. I’m speaking on Reagan multiple times this month, including at the Reagan Ranch Center in Santa Barbara, where we’re releasing (pardon the plug) my new book that endeavors to answer the question “What is a Reagan conservative?” Thus, this...

    Best listen to your mother, boy... It's time to give-up on the "nostolgia" of the Reagan era: "So our ideas need to be forward looking and relevant.  I felt like there was a lot of nostalgia and the  good old days in the [Republican] messaging.  I mean, it’s great, but it doesn’t draw people toward your cause"  "From the conservative side, it’s time for us to listen first,  to learn a little bit, to upgrade our message a little bit,  to not be nostalgic about the past because,  you know, things do ebb and flow..." "I don't think a...
