Monday, February 29, 2016 -- Trump & The Klan, South Carolina Results, Officer Down, Racism At MSNBC

Trump & The Klan

Last week, former KKK leader and anti-Semite David Duke announced on his radio program (I didn't know he even had one!) that he supported Donald Trump and was going to vote for him. "Voting for these people [Cruz, Rubio and Carson], voting against Donald Trump at this point, is really treason to your...

Debate Recap

The gloves came off at last night's Republican debate in Houston, Texas. Senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio were eager to knock Donald Trump off his perch as the GOP front-runner. While I am glad they went on offense, I really don't think it helps when everyone talks at the same time.

Here's how the Associated Press described the debate:

Debate Night

The remaining Republican candidates will take the stage tonight in Houston, Texas. Tonight's debate will be hosted by CNN and begins at 8:30 p.m. ET.

This could well be a make-or-break moment for the GOP contenders heading into Super Tuesday on March 1st. Twelve states are voting next week and nearly 600 delegates are up for grabs.

Wednesday, February 24, 2016 -- No Hearings, Trump Runs The Table, Obama Letting Illegals Vote

No Hearings

Kudos to the Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee!

We reported yesterday that Senator Charles Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, was holding firm in his opposition to hearings for any Obama nominee to the Supreme Court. In fact, Grassley invoked the so-called "Biden Rule." (In 1992 then-Judiciary Committee chairman Senator Joe Biden warned President...

Tuesday, February 23, 2016 -- Obama's Radical Agenda, Biden's Rules, Trump To Prosecute Hillary

Obama Presses Radical Agenda

Oh, if only we had a president who cared as much about veterans as he does about the comfort of enemy combatants. Speaking at a White House press conference this morning, President Obama announced that the Pentagon was submitting a formal plan to Congress to...

Monday, February 22, 2016 -- Saturday's Results, Reflections On Money, Evangelicals & Trump, Scalia Laid To Rest

Results: Nevada

Hillary Clinton won the Nevada Democrat caucuses Saturday by a larger than expected margin of 53% to 47%. Two recent polls showed Clinton and Sanders were tied in Nevada, and the Sanders campaign desperately wanted to prove that New Hampshire wasn't an aberration. But it just wasn't in the cards.

Reports suggest Clinton got a big boost from behind-the-...

Friday, February 19, 2016 -- Francis & Trump, Cruz Closing In, Goodbye Nino

Pope Francis -- Please Call Your Office!

By now you have heard about the controversy between Pope Francis and Donald Trump. When a reporter aboard the papal airplane baited Pope Francis with a loaded question about Donald Trump's signature issue -- building a border wall -- the pope unfortunately swallowed the hook. He responded:

"And then a person who thinks only about building walls,...

Thursday, February 18, 2016 -- Poll Position, Neutral On Israel, Supreme Chaos, Media Notice

Poll Position: The Democrats

The 2016 presidential campaign diverges this weekend with Democrats holding caucuses in Nevada while Republicans have a primary in South Carolina. In both cases, the race is wide open. I'll start with the Democrats.

After an extremely close and highly questionable win in Iowa, Hillary Clinton got trounced in New Hampshire. Her campaign and its media allies dismissed the...

Wednesday, February 17, 2016 -- Crushing The American Dream, Cook's Contempt, Left-wing Hate Crime, Trump's Truther Moment

Crushing The American Dream

In all the huge headlines of recent days, an event took place in Indianapolis that went largely unnoticed here in Washington, D.C., and in many other places. But it was a big deal to the 2,100 men and women and their families who were directly affected.

Carrier, the air conditioning manufacturer and a division of United Technologies, called...

Tuesday, February 16, 2016 -- A Supreme Battle, The Left's Spin, Your Vote, An Early Gift

A Supreme Battle

Over the course of the past year, whenever people asked who would be the next president, I often said it was hard to answer that question because the election would be determined by headlines we haven't yet seen. We know, for example, that the headlines from the Paris and San Bernardino attacks significantly impacted Dr. Ben Carson's standing in the polls.

The shocking death of...
