    An "article" posted Thursday by Jeva Lange at The Week blatantly lies about Ted Cruz. And it is not the first time Lange has mischaracterized Cruz's words. The post, titled "Ted Cruz mistakenly claims Jimmy Carter endorsed Donald Trump," gives the reader the false impression that Ted Cruz said former President Jimmy Carter would vote for Donald Trump. Lange writes: ...

    Sen. Ted Cruz won the New Hampshire GOP debate. Cruz managed to stay above the hand to hand combat between the desperate governors and Sen Marco Rubio and Donald Trump. He gave great answers to the ABC News moderators, some of whom spent the night fishing for sound bites that could be used to help the Democrats' eventual nominee. Gov. Chris Christie went after Sen. Marco Rubio early and seemed to rattle him. Unfortunately Christie came across as...

    During Saturday night's ABC News debate, co-moderator Martha Raddatz, a personal friend of Barack Obama's, asked Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) an incredibly dumb gotcha question premised on the idea that Cruz is some kind of war-monger, but only when he wants to be. Cruz was first about the news that, in violation of treaty, North Korea launched fired a long-range rocket Saturday. Cruz gave an impressive and detailed answer about North Korean threat that included legitimate criticism of President Clinton's mishandling of his failed nuclear deal. Raddatz then attacked: ...

    The bipartisan Open Secrets blog reported that a small number of Americans, led by George Soros, donated $100 million to Presidential Super PACs in the second half of 2015. Federal Election Commission filings of 21 different Super PACs supporting the top 13 major party candidates show "29 individuals or organizations who gave $1 million or more" for a total of $99.4 million collected in a six-month period. Adding in the 13 campaign committees, to total raised in the second half of 2015 was $260 million. Democrat former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton pocketed the largest individual single Super PAC donation...

    Republican presidential candidate and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson's former top campaign aides think Carson's campaign botched the handling of his post-Iowa caucus trip home to Florida, the fallout of which has pervaded throughout the week. Before the caucuses began, Carson's campaign hastily said that the candidate was heading home "to get fresh clothes," amid speculation that he might be pulling the plug on his campaign. Barry Bennett, Carson's former campaign manager, and Doug Watts, his former communications director, told Business Insider that the candidate was asking for such speculation by making the announcement in the middle of the caucus fury....

    MANCHESTER, N.H. -- The New Hampshire primary is less than four days away, but the Cruz campaign is already ramping up volunteer organizing efforts in South Carolina. The campaign on Saturday sent an email asking supporters to join a "strike force" to deploy to South Carolina and aid get-out-the-vote operations, with housing provided in Greenville, S.C. -- the third "Camp Cruz" lodging operation to open, following those based in Des Moines and Manchester. Cruz sees friendlier territory in evangelical-dominated South Carolina than he does here in more moderate New Hampshire, and made it a point to stop in Greenville Tuesday...

In the hours after Sen.

Even an aide to Chris Christie reached out. But as he processed his grief over Paul's exit, Eastman already had a new candidate in mind. On...

"Where did they come from?" Trump asked as he spoke about the November terrorist attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, Calif., referencing the attackers who carried out the killings. "And then President Obama yesterday goes to a mosque and he apologizes. I mean, what's going on?" he added as the crowd booed.

The Florida senator got the support of 15% of likely GOP New Hampshire voters, leapfrogging Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, the latest University of Massachusetts-Lowell poll showed. Bombastic billionaire Donald Trump remained the front-runner in the state with a whopping 36%, while Cruz came in third with 14%. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Ohio Gov. John Kasich came in third and fourth, with 8% and 7%, respectively. No...

    Republican operatives from inside and outside New Hampshire agree: Sen. Ted Cruz is all but doomed to finish below the top tier in the Granite State. The winning coalition Cruz put together in Iowa won't work in New Hampshire, they say, pointing to the fact New Hampshire has the second-lowest rate of church attendance in the country. So the edge that Cruz had among evangelicals isn't particularly applicable there. "I would advise Cruz to skip New Hampshire and go to South Carolina. I believe you shouldn't compete anywhere where it's not a favorable battlefield to win," said Stuart Stevens, a...

The pollsters are contacting New Hampshire Republicans every day.

    GILBERT -- Lt. Gov. Henry McMaster shook up the Republican establishment -- and his close ally, Gov. Nikki Haley -- by making a move few saw coming: endorsing Donald Trump for president. "He's a man of action," McMaster said of Trump. "He speaks in words that everybody understands. It's a delightful thing to see." McMaster is the highest ranking state officer in the U.S. to endorse Trump. He's also one of South Carolina's biggest so-called "establishment" leaders, having chaired the state Republican Party for nine years. McMaster introduced Trump during his campaign rally Wednesday at the Harmon Tree Farm in...

    In what could be the biggest shock in the S.C. primary this far, Trump received an endorsement Wednesday from McMaster, the second high-ranking S.C. politician to back a 2016 hopeful. McMaster's endorsement of Trump was a surprise because the former state attorney general, U.S. attorney and S.C. GOP chairman is considered one of the top establishment members in the state party. Much of the S.C. party's establishment base has endorsed Bush in the GOP race after initially backing U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, a Seneca Republican who pulled out of the presidential race last month. Graham, the only other statewide politician...

    Donald Trump isn’t sucking up to Iowa, and it’s working. The billionaire has eschewed the traditional, door-to-door retail politics that have always been considered mandatory in the early states. Instead, Trump has preferred to hold massive rallies in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada, where he brags about his poll numbers and rails against President Obama, Hillary Clinton, his GOP opponents, and, of course, the media. From there, Trump jets off to another early primary state event and kicks off the next show. And now, despite that unusual approach, political consultants are beginning to think he could win this...

In fact, if you were to review the debate substance you'd note that candidate Rubio wasn't directly questioned about his immigration positions at all.It is not disconnected that during the 2013/2014 Gang-of-Eight immigration constructs, Fox News was an active participant in the promotion of the immigration reform proposals. In order to facilitate the congressional immigration intent Fox launched a previously unknown pro-amnesty propaganda blitz to support senate...

    South Carolina's lieutenant governor endorsed Donald Trump during the GOP front-runner's rally here Wednesday night. Lt. Gov. Henry McMaster, who was elected in November 2014, previously served as the state's attorney general and chairman of the South Carolina GOP. He is the highest-ranking South Carolina official to endorse Trump.
  • LIVE THREAD:Trump rally in Lexington, SC 7:00 pm (CST) at Harmon Tree Farm January 27, 2016.

    Lexington, SC is another small town America stop for the Trump steamer. Population 20,905. It's a fitting location after the “battle lines’ Trump and Fox have put up. Why? Let's go back to revolutionary times. The area initially was called Saxe Gotha, but the name was replaced in commemoration of the battles of Lexington and Concord in Massachusetts. Before then, this area stood up to the British in The Battle of Tarrar Springs fought nearby on November 16, 1781. I will post an interesting eye witness account of the battle below. In short, what the British did to these Patriots,...

    The FBI is going straight to the source in its investigation of classified emails that crossed Hillary Clinton's personal server, speaking with the intelligence agencies - and in some cases, the individuals - that generated the information, two intelligence sources familiar with the probe told Fox News. Investigators are meeting with the agencies and individuals to determine the classification level in the emails. The step speaks to the diligence with which the bureau is handling the investigation, despite the former secretary of state's claims that the matter boils down to a mere interagency dispute. "This is not merely a difference...

    South Carolina Barber, His Client Fatally Shoot Armed Robber During Stickup: 'I Was Thinking We Had To Keep Everybody Safe' A would-be South Carolina robber who tried to stick up a barber shop was killed Friday when the lead stylist and his client pulled out their concealed weapons and opened fire on the intruder. A second suspect is still on the lam following the raid at Next Up Barber Shop in Columbia, officials said. Store surveillance video caught the harrowing invasion -- and the resulting shooting. The shop was packed with customers -- including young children -- when two gunmen...

    The Hill ^ | 1/25 | John LeBoutillier
    It is the beginning of the end of the House of Clinton: 1. There is the stench of political death around Hillary, Bill, Chelsea and the entire House of Clinton. 2. You could feel it when Republican front-runner Donald Trump hit back — hard — over the "penchant for sexism" charge by basically calling Hillary Clinton an enabler in the former president's sexual shenanigans. 3. When have we ever seen the Clintons back off? But they did. 4. Then came further reports about an expanded FBI probe of her handling of secure information; the nexus of State Department favors for...

    Let me be clear - I am pro-life. I support that position with exceptions allowed for rape, incest or the life of the mother being at risk. I did not always hold this position, but I had a significant personal experience that brought the precious gift of life into perspective for me. My story is well documented, so I will not retell it here. However, what I will do with the remaining space is express my feelings about life, and the culture of life, as we just marked the 43rd anniversary of Roe v. Wade. I build things. There is...
  • Outraged Over GOP Establishment, Trump Supporters Prepare To Win BIG

    Word is spreading - Donald Trump supporters are outraged over his treatment by a cabal of self- appointed representatives of conservatism like Glenn Beck and Erick Erickson, among others, who utilized the National Review magazine to declare their opposition to the current GOP frontrunner in what is an unprecedented show of force by media and political establishment figures to attempt to convince voters they are incapable of making their own decision regarding who to cast their vote for. It might very well prove to the final ingredient in a Trump tsunami once Republican primary voting is underway.
