  • California seeks to move up its presidential primary

    The Washington Examiner ^ | April 11, 2017 | Sean Langille
    California's secretary of state is backing a push from state lawmakers to make its presidential nominating contest the third in the nation. Legislation offered by Democratic state lawmakers seeks to move California's from June to shortly after Iowa and New Hampshire's presidential primaries. "A state as populous and diverse as California should not be an afterthought. Moving up the California primary in 2020 makes sense and will give California voters a more significant role.
  • It’s happening, guys. Liberals gear up to primary Democratic incumbents

    I first caught wind of this story on Morning Joe today and at first it seemed too good to be true. Rumors had been swirling for a while now about some newfound bravado among the Bernie Sanders/Elizabeth Warren wing of the Democratic Party and how they had begun to fancy themselves as a new and improved version of the Tea Party movement. But would they really go so far as to begin attacking their own for a failure to toe the most liberal party line? It seems that at least some of them have decided that it’s high time...
  • Early voting is fundamentally unfair and undermines fair elections

    Conservative Review ^ | November 1, 2016 | Daniel Horowitz
    With the revelation that the FBI is re-opening its investigation into Hillary’s emails and Trump on the rise because he is keeping his mouth shut, many are wondering if Trump could pull off a major come-from-behind victory. The problem is even if his positive trajectory continues through Election Day, it might already be too late for him. Hillary might have already banked an insurmountable lead prior to the authentic Election Day set by Congress since 1845. According to the New York Times, with eight days until official Election Day, over 22 million people had already voted early. Some estimate that...

  • Wasserman Schultz: Sanders camp tried to make me the 'boogeywoman'

    Former Democratic Party chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz defended her handling of the party's presidential primary as "by the books" and criticized Bernie Sanders's campaign for attempting to peg her as the "boogeywoman". **SNIP** "So when you are under siege for that many months and every day you have people going on TV attacking your integrity and suggesting that you are rigging the outcome of an election somehow, that’s going to be expressed in private. ... Unfortunately when your emails are stolen, as in our case, it became public."

    The Coach's Team ^ | 8/7/16 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    Our friend Charles Johnson of Gotnews.com has put together a compelling argument for Speaker of the House Paul Ryan’s defeat in the Republican primary being held in the 1st Congressional District of Wisconsin on Tuesday. Whether Ryan stays on or not is to be determined by a small group of Americans who are being asked to place country over their personal aims and goals. Let us hope those who have not yet decided on which man to support will read this and vote accordingly. Ryan’s challenger is Paul Nehlen a local businessman who, in the truest tradition of our Founding...
  • Final primary spending numbers are in; see who's more embarrassed than Lindsey Graham

    Bizpac Review ^ | July 30, 2016 | Scott Morefield
    The most "inefficient" candidate? Why, Lindsey Graham, of course. I know, I know. Did ANYONE vote for Lindsey Graham? Well, 5,623 souls to be exact, or enough to fill up a Columbia 1-AA football stadium. Since Graham paid a total of $5,700,248 for all those votes, or $1,013.74 per vote, he wins the prize for electoral waste. . . In fairness to Graham and others who exited the race early, generally those who invested a ton of money in the early primaries only to fail and drop out were by far the least efficient candidates. For example, Jeb Bush spent...

    The Huffington Post ^ | June 29, 2016 | Jennifer Bendery
    WASHINGTON — Transgender women won two congressional primary races Tuesday night — and made history as the first trans people to become major candidates for the U.S. House or Senate. Utah voters chose Misty Snow (D) to run against Sen. Mike Lee (R) in November. In Colorado, voters backed Misty Plowright (D) to take on Rep. Doug Lamborn (R). It’s a long shot for either to get elected. Utah is a solidly Republican state, and Lamborn’s district in Colorado is extremely conservative. Still, it’s a positive sign that transgender candidates aren’t just out there, they can also succeed. “In what...

    The New York Times ^ | 24 May 2016 | Jeremy W. Peters
    Leaders of the Republican Party have begun internal deliberations over what would be fundamental changes to the way its presidential nominees are chosen, a recognition that the chaotic process that played out this year is seriously flawed and helped exacerbate tensions within the party. In a significant shift, Republican officials said it now seemed unlikely that the four states to vote first would all retain their cherished place on the electoral calendar, with Nevada as the most probable casualty. Party leaders are even going so far as to consider diluting the traditional status of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina...

    Democrat candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders each picked up primary wins on Tuesday in yet another demonstration of how divided the party is in the drawn-out national race to win the nomination for November's general election. Clinton narrowly defeated Sanders in Kentucky, a state where she was not expected to win. Sanders bested her in Oregon, a state that played to his strengths.

    New York Times ^ | 5/16,2016 | Pocono Pundit
    While scanning an NYT election map of Democrat primary results, the outlook appears very promising for Mr. Trump.  Here's the deal: Hillary won in Republican stronghold states of the deep South, Texas.  Those States should very easily move to the Republican side in the general. States like Florida, Nevada, and Arizona tilted to Hillary, but these are States where Trump has a special strengths: his business interests in Florida and Nevada, plus his strong anti-illegal immigration stance in Arizona. Bernie beat Hillary in the Northeast, and those are the toughest States for a Republican to win.  So Hillary is...

    Male executives at the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation earn 38 percent more than women executives, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation review of the foundation’s latest IRS tax filings. The foundation’s 2013 IRS form 990 reveals that nearly three times as many men as women occupy the executive suites at the Little Rock, Arkansas-based foundation. On average, top male executives at the foundation earn $109,000 more than the top female executives with positions in the C-suite.
