    Since House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., shocked his congressional colleagues early Thursday by withdrawing his name from consideration to replace John Boehner, R-Ohio, as Speaker of the House, Republicans have launched a relentless press aimed at convincing House Ways and Means Committee chair Paul Ryan, R-Wis., to put himself forward for the job. Fox News has learned that Boehner himself is imploring Ryan, Mitt Romney's running mate on the 2012 Republican presidential ticket, to put himself forward for the top job in the House, largely because Ryan is one of the few unifying figures in the House Republican Conference.

    Obamacare’s survival is not a given, despite claims by the Democrats and their media allies that the Supreme Court’s latest rewrite of the law means it’s here to stay. Most Americans still disapprove of it, and many of the law’s provisions are unpopular even with important Democrat constituencies. The “Cadillac tax,” for example, is so reviled by the labor unions that Hillary Clinton has been forced to call for its repeal. Yet, only one of the three leading candidates for the GOP presidential nomination has both the credibility and a serious commitment to getting rid of Obamacare — Ben Carson....

    Donald Trump's number one qualification is that he is not a politician. He reminds us everyday and it's true. People may not like what he has to say or how he says it, but America needs Donald Trump. He and Ted Cruz have a similar plan to simplify the tax code, secure the border and make America an economic engine of the world. The two can unite the Tea Party movement and Trump alone can appeal to Democrat voters to beat Hillary Clinton. Recent polls have shown Trump appealing to voters of all stripes. Trump also has a tough foreign...

    Former Secretary of State Colin Powell, who endorsed President Obama in 2008 and 2012, told the Washington Ideas Forum that there’s a special reason why he doesn’t change his party affiliation. Powell confirmed that he’s still a registered Republican. “I want to continue to be a Republican because it annoys them,” he quipped. “I think the party has shifted much further right than where the country is and it should be obvious to party leaders that they cannot keep saying and doing the things that they were doing and hope to be successful in national-level election in the future, not...

    House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy is pitching himself for the role of the next speaker of the House and says he’s the leader who will know how to pick his battles — and bring everyone to the table. McCarthy laid out his vision for the speakership Tuesday in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper on “The Lead,” saying he wouldn’t shy away from a fight, but he wouldn’t enter one that was futile. “I’m willing to fight but I want to fight to win,” McCarthy said when asked about the call by some Republicans to force a government shutdown fight...

    Nobody can predict the future. Not Nostradamus, not Karl Rove, not the Oracle at Delphi. But as primary voters, we must try. Not because we’re going to Las Vegas to bet on the election, but because every primary race is dependent on some judgment about the likely result. In November, voters only need to ask one question: •Which of the major party candidates would be better in the office? But in the primaries and caucuses, we have several questions to ask: •Which of our choices would be best in the office? •Which of our choices has the best shot in...

    It appears to be universally agreed upon that last night’s debate on CNN was Carly Fiorina’s moment to shine in the spotlight, and she did. The fight to get her as number 11 into the debate paid big dividends for her. She was poised, sometimes stern, and made a great connection between Iran and Planned Parenthood. Many have already jumped on to the Carly bandwagon, but there are still many unanswered questions about her that conservatives should demand answers for first before joining the group. Was she that great of a CEO at HP?According to her in the debate, yes...

    CNN President Jeff Zucker is wearing a big smile today. CNN pulled in about 23 million viewers last night during the second Republican debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California. From 8:15 p.m. to 11:15 p.m. EDT, CNN drew 22.9 million viewers, according to Nielsen Fast National ratings data. The network essentially matched Fox News, whose debate last month -- the first in the Republican primary race -- earned 24 million viewers. That's the kind of number that one sees on a popular network show like Fox's "Empire," which took in over 23 million viewers during...

    Seeing all of this positive news about Trump has led me to a somewhat off-the-wall line of thought - is it time to redefine the term "RINO"? Let's face it, the GOP as a party no longer has true conservative values. The party has left its conservative roots behind, and has adopted a leftist/fascist philosophy among its establishment members.Since the term "RINO" is an acronym made from "Republican In Name Only", should it still be used as a pejorative? In my opinion, RINO should be a badge of honor at this point instead of an insult to a GOP candidate...

    From the moment Donald Trump entered the presidential race, the news media and pundits predicted his political demise. Each time his poll numbers went up instead of down, they rationalized it in irrational ways. For example, the news was flooded with Trump’s supposed missteps and guffaws. But when his poll numbers went up instead of down, the pundits claimed it’s because he’d gotten so much “free publicity”—never mind that the publicity had been given with the goal of making him look bad. I’m not a political analyst. This is neither a defense nor criticism of Trump or any candidate. It’s...

In the 2012 cycle, both Rick Perry and Newt Gingrich saw similar surges into the lead, only to watch those leads recede just as rapidly a few weeks later. When we looked at this a few weeks ago, the comparison looked like this: Trump, like Perry and Gingrich, topped out at a bit above a 10-percentage-point lead. But then that lead held. Here's what that graph looks like now: We've increased the scale, because we wanted to...

    The Quinnipiac University poll, released Thursday, also shows Donald Trump smashing the GOP presidential competition garnering 28% support from registered Republican voters in the 17-member field. The real estate mogul's closest competitor is retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, who tallies 12%. Just 7% said they would vote for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, a record low since November 2013. Those results show just how far both Trump -- now the Republican front-runner -- and Bush -- the old one -- have come. Bush led national polls for much of the first half of 2015, but was quickly dislodged by Trump, after...

    The state party's executive committee voted Friday to eliminate the presidential preference poll held during the party's March caucuses. That means there will be no official count of who won that contest. The vote was unanimous and drew little attention until it was reported by The Denver Post on Tuesday. State GOP Chairman Steve House said the change was made in response to a new Republican National Committee rule that would have made the presidential preference poll binding. The executive committee decided that would bring too much formality to the caucuses, which have drawn criticism in the past for being...

And that is true. But only barely. In a recent survey conducted by Government Business Council, the research arm of Government Executive Media Group, 44 percent of respondents identified as Democrats or Democratic-leaning independents, while 40 percent identified as Republicans or Republican-leaning independents. The remaining respondents were undecided or did not identify with either party, though a plurality of them said they were “conservatives.” Top-level management...

Friends of mine who don’t dabble in politics (or sports) looked forward to this forum of A+ contenders rumbling for the spotlight, votes, and the nomination.

    It was 88 years ago this month that President Calvin Coolidge handed out strips of paper (that he cut himself) to members of the press during a brief conference with these words: I do not choose to run for President in 1928. This stunning event took place at the Summer White House in the Black Hills of South Dakota on August 2, 1927. The implications of Coolidge not actively seeking the Republican presidential nomination for 1928 reverberate to this day. While the terse phrasing appeared to leave the door open for a draft movement, the result was that Herbert Hoover...

    A skilled surgeon needs a scalpel, but killers can get by with cudgels. That is because it’s a whole lot easier to smash a skull than to separate conjoined twins. America’s abortion status quo is corrupt and callous, a regime of highly organized crime which lets abortionists legally kill an unborn child through all nine months of pregnancy for any reason, and be massively subsidized by the government to do it.

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...

    The Conservative Underground ^ | August 7, 2015 | James P. Willis
    The only big news from last night’s debate is that we can confirm that we should not trust the news media to run a Presidential debate. To begin with, this was a question and answer period, not a debate. A debate would have been more substantive and would have given people some idea about a candidate’s position on issues rather than their ability to produce a sound bite on command. The questions were controlled in a way that demonstrated the bias of the media personalities asking them, and there was no effort to even pretend to give each candidate an...

    Illinois Review ^ | August 5, 2015 A.D. | John F. Di Leo
    Reflections – and a bit of a primer – on Illinois’ next U.S. Senate race… Parties sometimes get a bum rap. Oh, not always; there’s a lot that political parties do that makes them deserve everything said about them. The Democratic Party, for example, is now so uniformly socialist that, when asked on-camera to list any differences between a modern Democrat and a socialist, DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D, FL) was unable to identify any. The Republican Party isn’t that easy to categorize. The GOP is the only major party to the right of the Democrats, so it basically...

    If any of the Republican candidates are watching, we're seeing Trump and other candidates use the phrasing approved of by the media. I think it would be very productive to "rephrase" certain words for the debate. Here are some obvious ones. abortion services, Planned Parenthood -> "baby harvesting"traditional marriage -> "biology-based marriage"minimum wage increases -> "low-skilled worker exclusion"Caitlyn Jenner -> "baritone in a dress" The last one was just for fun. Any other suggestions?

    Despite four horrific videos showing Planned Parenthood doctors potentially breaking the law to sell the body parts of aborted babies, two Republicans say they will oppose the bill next week that will de-fund Planned Parenthood and stop it from receiving taxpayer funds. After three shocking videos caught Planned Parenthood doctors discussing and arranging the sale of body parts of aborted babies, a fourth video has been released today catching a Planned Parenthood vice president discussing how Planned Parenthood how to break or get around the law to sell aborted babies. The video also shows a Planned Parenthood doctor shouting, “Another...

    From Progressives Today: “Republicans and conservatives are the enemy. They are expendable. They will be targets in the Revolution when it comes” writes Roland Windsor Vincent, in a recent post on his blog, Army Of The Revolution. The entry, entitled “Protect Animals And The Environment. Shoot Republicans“, centers around animal rights and how “active Republican and conservatives voters are enabling the Animal Holocaust” and “If we were to start shooting Republicans, we would likely not harm a single friend of animals or the environment.” You hear about something like this and you want to think of it as an anomaly....

    It’s sometimes said that you can tell a lot about a person by the friends they keep. That makes sense. Friendships are generally based on complementary personalities, shared values, and a variety of intangibles that cause people to bond. Money in politics is a similar barometer. The vast majority of Americans never donate any money to politicians or get involved in politics at all. For all of the kvetching about money in politics, there’s really not that much there. In 2012 a total of $6 billion was spent on politics. That includes spending by campaigns, outside groups, and independent organizations....
