    A blizzard worse than Blizzard 2016—an icy storm of furious American voters—is descending upon Washington as voters prepare a revenge mutiny. "Revenge mutiny" is my term for throwing overboard traitors who threw you overboard first. It's happening within both the Republican and Democratic parties. We've knocked on doors. We spent weekends in drab phone banks making calls for candidates who promised the opposite of what they delivered. We're done. Rome wasn't built in a day. America will not be destroyed in a day. Ted Cruz, Donald Trump, and Bernie Sanders' surging energy—simultaneous with Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush, and Chris Christie's...

    Washington (CNN)Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is seriously considering a possible independent presidential run and is looking at making a decision sometime in March, two sources familiar with Bloomberg's thinking told CNN on Saturday. One source said aides to the three-term mayor are looking at ballot access issues, but the source refused to speak specifically about what Bloomberg, 73, asked to be done. The source added that Bloomberg sees the Republican and Democratic presidential races as becoming increasingly polarized, and neither fits Bloomberg's views. But Bloomberg, who has flirted with Oval Office aspirations in the past, is serious...

    Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg is seriously considering a third-party run for the presidency and has alerted advisers to draw up a plan for success, according to a report. Bloomberg, 73, told friends he is prepared to spend as much as $1 billion to win the White House and set a deadline of early March for making a decision, the New York Times reported Saturday.

    Ted Wade hasn't cared about politics enough to cast a vote in a U.S. presidential election for almost a quarter of a century, back when he supported Ross Perot's independent candidacy in 1992. But Republican Donald Trump's 2016 White House bid has motivated Wade to get involved and he plans to support the real estate mogul in Nevada's nominating caucus next month. Trump is a "non-politician" who can fix the "chaos" in Washington, he says. About one in 10 Americans who plan to cast a vote this election will do so for the first time in years, if ever, and...

    During the last half of 2015, a specter haunted the Republican "invisible primary" for the 2016 presidential nomination: an independent run for president by Donald Trump that would split the GOP base and send a Democrat gliding into the White House. As he consolidated a position in the polls as the GOP front-runner, Trump was maneuvered into signing a party loyalty pledge (required to get onto the ballot in South Carolina), and then ruled out an indie run at and after a December candidate debate. With a guy like Trump, an abandonment of this doubled-down oath is always possible, especially...

"Hillary Clinton should be called to account for her inept leadership that brought about the chaos in Libya, and the power vacuums that resulted in the rest of the region,” Webb wrote in a Facebook post Saturday. "While she held that office, the U.S. spent about $2 billion backing the Libyan uprising...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump and Ben Carson could dangle the possibility of independent runs for president well into the primary season next year, but they can't wait forever. State filing deadlines would give the two Republicans until about March to launch independent or third-party campaigns, experts said. That would give a well-financed campaign enough time to gather sufficient signatures on petitions so the candidate could appear on the ballot in every state. Starting next summer would be too late. "Ross Perot in 1992 didn't start petitioning until March," said Richard Winger, editor of Ballot Access News. "He was on...

During Thursday nights Fox News debate, Trump made it clear that failing to secure the GOP nomination wouldnt stop him from exploring an independent candidacy. And honestly, hed be crazy not to. Trump is very far from a Republican regular. He represents an entirely different phenomenon, one that bears little resemblance to garden-variety American conservatism. Thats why Republicans shouldnt fool themselves into believing that one lackluster debate performance will send him packing. Go to almost any European...

Conservative policies work for everyone. They make life better for us all. However, the average...

    "The Confederate Flag Is The Legacy Of Democrats, Not Republicans" was the word put out by Rush Limbaugh just hours before Republican Governor Nikki Haley appeared with Republican Senators Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott to call for removal of the Confederate Flag from the Statehouse grounds in Columbia, SC. Atlanta talk show host Erick Erickson of RedState.com also came out for flag removal. Posters here on FR have amplified their views. Much of the spin again associates Democrats with the Confederate Flag to justify the latest cave in to Leftist pressure. But I remember one such Democrat from South Carolina,...

    Donald Trump, the bombastic builder of Trump towers and Trump gambling casinos, is moving from his reality TV show to the theater of presidential elections. If he survives the first three months of mass media drubbing him and his notorious affliction of leaving no impulsive opinion behind, hes going to be trouble for the other fifteen or so Republican presidential candidates. Already the commentators have derided his massive egotitis he said I 195 times in his announcement speech, not counting the 28 times he said my or mine or the 22 mentions of me. But Trump revels in self-promotion...

    UKIP's Nigel Farage has ruled out standing down as leader of the party despite a bitter row over his future. MEP Patrick O'Flynn earlier claimed Mr. Farage had fallen under the influence of "inexperienced" advisers, which was followed by the departure of two aides. However, Mr. Farage told the BBC's Question Time he had a "phenomenal" level of support within the party. Leaving just as the PM was addressed the UK's relationship with the EU would be a "massive mistake", he said...... The UKIP leader stood down after failing to win the Kent seat of Thanet South in the general...

    Its getting pretty rough and intense on the eve of a hotly contested general election. The tactics of the big parties are squarely aimed at the smaller parties. In recent hours, Prime Minister David Cameron has made comments saying Wales and Scotland should have tax raising powers. A pitch to the nationalist parties there can be no doubt. The rise of the Scottish National Party has shocked many considering their loss in the independence referendum last year. It looks like the SNP will win 50 to 60 of Scotland's 71 seats in the House of Commons tomorrow. There have been...

    There was a "debate" between political parties in the United Kingdom Thursday night with five leaders on the stage from the leading parties that aren't in power. PM David Cameron only wanted to participate in one debate so this format was concocted by the BBC as an alternative to an all party debate. Also excluded, Cameron's partner party in government, the Liberal Democrats. Labour leader Ed Miliband was joined by UKIP leader Nigel Farage, Scottish National Party leader Nicola Sturgeon, Welsh nationalist leader Leanne Wood and Green Party leader Natalie Bennett. Sturgeon, Wood and Bennett whose main differences with Miliband...

    Just as surely as Marshal Petain capitulated to Naziism in France in 1940, Governor Mike Pence and the Republican legislative leaders of Indiana have capitulated to Corporatism in 2015. Big Business and professional sports organizations backed by the corporate elites attacked the religious freedom bill in Indiana and the Republicans caved, more evidence of a Uniparty system where corporate elites dictate policy, This adds to other issues like Amnesty and Common Core, where Big Business drives the agenda and the politicians march in lockstep. The House in Arkansas has now passed a similar religious freedom bill, but the business elites...

    My heart is broken right now realizing that harm has been done to LGBT people in this country. Much of it is real involving bullying and sexual abuse, among other things. But much of it is also imaginary leading to imaginary notions about 'enemies'. Those who have conservative religious beliefs about sexuality have been defined by activists that include major business leaders like Apple CEO Tim Cook as bigots, racists, KKK and Nazis. With that notion in their heads and with business- political-media support, one shudders to think what is happening at this moment in the attack on the Indiana...
