    A new batch of Hillary Clinton's emails made public by the State Department Monday night show her expressing interest in the presidential aspirations of Gen. David Petraeus, who ultimately took a job as CIA director in the Obama administration instead of running for president in 2012 and was then driven out of government by scandal. Clinton--who's now the frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination next year--sounded intrigued when her longtime friend Sidney Blumenthal reported to her on a Saturday morning in February 2010 that prominent Washington foreign policy blogger Steve Clemons said Petraeus was talking frankly about the possibility of...

Together they will keep the Executive Branch of Government on track! Both want to make America Great Again! They will be fighting certain elitists that have taken control of both the Democrat and Republican parties. You can call them The Trans National elite -- as they 'transcend' Nationality But, whatever name you give them, they ARE the promoters of the open borders policies, that we've been seeing for so many, many years.

I have decided in 2020 to run for president.” Hollywood Reporter reports that West hinted that he took “something” before the show, saying “I rolled up a little something. I knocked the edge off,” but he told the audience, “It ain’t about me. It’s about ideas, bro.”

    The Republican Party will continue to lose presidential elections if it comes across as mean-spirited and unwelcoming toward people of color, Donald Trump tells Newsmax. Whether intended or not, comments and policies of Mitt Romney and other Republican candidates during this election were seen by Hispanics and Asians as hostile to them, Trump says. “Republicans didn’t have anything going for them with respect to Latinos and with respect to Asians,” the billionaire developer says. “The Democrats didn’t have a policy for dealing with illegal immigrants, but what they did have going for them is they weren’t mean-spirited about it,” Trump...

    The president of the upcoming papal event in Philadelphia backed political candidates who support homosexual “marriage” and abortion, including a former Planned Parenthood director, a new report says. World Meeting of Families President Robert Ciaruffoli gave thousands of dollars to several pro-abortion and pro-homosexual candidates over the last 16 years, according to the Lepanto Institute, one that founded a Philadelphia Planned Parenthood facility and opposed restriction of interstate transportation of minors for abortion. While Ciaruffoli did contribute to a number of candidates who uphold life and marriage, the report says, his record of support for those promoting abortion and homosexuality...

The real estate and casino mogul, who is considering a run for the Republican presidential nomination, blamed China for the fact that Trump ties, Trump cufflinks and even Trump teddy bears come with a "Made in China" label.

    There have been many news stories in recent days about Donald Trump's proposed policy on H1-B visas and how that would be bad for India. Trump has advocated raising the minimum wage for H1-B visas, lowering the H1-B visa cap and generally making H1-B visas more difficult to obtain. Trump points out that his competitor Florida Senator Marco Rubio has introduced a bill to triple the H-1B visas and Trump contends that this would lower the average wage because the H1-B workers are willing to work harder for a lower wage because they want to get a green card.

    U.S. Sen. Rand Paul has transferred $250,000 to the Republican Party of Kentucky as a down payment on the presidential caucuses he has asked the party to conduct in March, he told members of the state party's central committee in an email Monday. Paul is seeking the party's help in bypassing a state law that prohibits him from running for president and for re-election to his Senate seat on the same ballot next year. He wrote to the party's state central committee, which has nearly 350 members, in an effort to quell concern about the cost of a caucus. In...

Paul took the position the government’s surveillance powers were significantly over-extended while Christie implied the senator’s views were dangerously ignorant and little more than “hot air.” Days after the confrontation between the two men it appears more voters are taking Senator Paul’s position over Christie’s as the New Jersey governor’s poll numbers continue to be stuck...

    Some political insiders have dismissed the upcoming debate for second-tier Republican presidential candidates as the "kids' table" debate. But for the low-ranking hopefuls who take part, the kids' debate might turn out to be as big an opportunity to move ahead as the first-tier faceoff scheduled for later on Thursday. For five reasons: 1) Donald Trump won't be involved. The top ten debate is in grave danger of becoming the Trump show. Even top GOP candidates' performances will be evaluated relative to Trump, making it harder for them to make a good impression on their own. 2) The second-tier debate...

    As the presidential-election season kicks off, governors from all over America are seeking the Republican nomination. Historically, voters in presidential elections have tended to favor the executive experience of governors, and it seems more likely than not that the eventual Republican nominee will be one of these gentlemen. A governor is different from other politicians in that he governs an identifiable state for an identifiable period of time, and thus can be empirically associated with an economic track record in a way that a senator or a heart surgeon cannot. Economics, however, remains an inexact science. Even if a million...

    For the first time in national history, a Rhode Island native son is running for President: Lincoln Chafee. “Stumbling” is more accurate, since shortly after declaring an exploratory committee, he fumbled into making himself a full-fledged candidate, and all the campaign finance hoopla which accompanies it. A one-term Republican US Senator, then one-term Independent Governor, Chafee entered the 2016 Presidential Election as a Democrat. Confused? Cable news program Common Sense openly derided his ambitions: “Are you kidding me?” MSNBC took his campaign seriously enough, asked him serious questions, and Chafee already looked like a deer in headlights.

Most observers are torn between the idea that Cruz is running to boost his profile, knowing full well that he can't win the nomination, and the idea that he's delusional enough to think he can win. I've actually argued that Ted Cruz has a path to the nomination. The conventional wisdom is that in Republican primaries,...

    On Tuesday, President Obama signed an agreement that equates to a $1,300 impact on every family in America — one of the largest stimulus packages in history. The only problem is that this money is not going to help put food on the table of struggling Americans. In fact, quite the opposite. This money is the $150 billion signing bonus that the Obama administration is giving Iran as part of the nuclear deal. And what is worse, National Security Adviser Susan Rice said on Wednesday’s Situation Room on CNN, “We should expect” that some of the money Iran gets as...

    Begin with the end in mind – I’m not trying to convince anyone that Donald Trump is running a campaign to actually win the GOP nomination. 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...

    Scott Walker, the political phenomenon who rose to national fame by taking on unions in one of the most blue-collar states, announced Monday that he’ll seek the Republican nomination for president, using his kick-off rally to throw red meat to his conservative supporters. “Americans want to vote for something and for someone,” Walker told the roaring crowd in Waukesha, Wisconsin. “So tonight, let me tell you what I’m for. I’m for reform, growth, safety. I’m for transferring power from Washington into the hands of hard working tax payers in all states across the country, that’s real reform.”…“I realize unlike some...

    Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker will sit down for an exclusive interview with ABC's David Muir, anchor of “World News Tonight with David Muir,” just one day before he is expected to announce his presidential campaign. Portions of the interview will air Monday on “Good Morning America,” "World News Tonight," “Nightline,” and Muir will also sit down with Walker’s wife, Tonette, and their two sons, Matt, 21, and Alex, 19. Walker, 47, first gained national notoriety in 2011, when he took steps to dramatically limit the collective bargaining powers of most of the state’s public unions, including teachers. After successfully...

    Donald Trump did not back down from controversial statements he made about immigration from Mexico, telling reporters Friday that his comments were taken out of context, and repeating his statements that Mexico is sending people to the U.S. that “Mexico doesn’t want.” Trump spoke at the Beverly Wilshire hotel in Beverly Hills after meeting with families of those killed by undocumented immigrants.“People came into the country illegally and killed their children. And it’s a very, very, sad thing what’s happening with our country … And nobody wants to talk about it,” Trump said. Trump also referenced the high-profile killing of...
  • Trump: I've got 'nothing to apologize for'

    Trump takes this MSNBC democrat operative out back and teaches her what it is when you try to take on a strong leader. He doesn't back down an inch and gives her both barrels over and over. She never stood a chance. This is how I want a President to deal with the media, which is nothing more than a propaganda machine for the Democrat party.

    One of the highest-profile Christian leaders in America, Franklin Graham of Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, is hinting that Barack Obama is deliberately setting himself up in opposition to God. On his Facebook page Tuesday, Graham, who has kept up a steady stream of comments on the “gay”-rights agenda, brought up the subject again. He noted Obama’s decision to promote homosexuality with colored lights at the White House after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled June 26 the Constitution grants same-sex couples a right to marriage. “He had the gall to disgrace the White House by lighting it...
  • New Jersey Dems will try to legislate Chris Christie out of office [Can't run for POTUS and be Gov.]

    I have to give a hat tip to Politico for coming up with the right title for this story: New Jersey Democrats troll Chris Christie. When it comes to completely frivolous legislation, New Jersey may be taking the cake. The Democrats there, apparently unhappy that Chris Christie is running for president (or just generally unhappy that he exists), are hoping to pass legislation making it illegal for him to do so and force him to resign. A pair of Democratic lawmakers, state Sens. Raymond Lesniak and Loretta Weinberg, are likely to cosponsor legislation that would require Christie and future...
