Thursday, March 24, 2016 -- Leadership Matters, Seven Minutes, Silencing Conservatives

Leadership Matters

In the era we're living in, it is important that more and more Americans understand the value of leadership when it comes to national security. As a former Under Secretary of Education, I know the importance of testing. So here is a pop quiz that might help to inform our response to the attacks in Belgium. Are you ready?

Question: Imagine that radical Islamists attack one of our allies....

Wednesday, March 23, 2016 -- Results, The Left Trashes Cruz, Belgium's 9/11, Bankrupting Nuns

Results: The Democrats

Senator Bernie Sanders notched two wins last night. He won Idaho 78% to 21% and carried Utah by an even larger margin -- 80% to 20%. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton carried Arizona 58% to 40%.

The delegate allocation from the three states slightly favored Sanders -- 57 to 51. But he is still a long way from catching Mrs. Clinton. In the total delegate count for the...

Big Day In D.C.

It's a big day in the nation's capital. Donald Trump is reaching out to congressional Republicans and other party insiders today. The GOP front-runner is hosting a private meeting at a law firm near Capitol Hill. Senators Jeff Sessions and Tom Cotton are expected to attend.

Friday, March 18, 2016 -- Republicans For Hillary, Kerry Sees The Obvious, House Challenges Obama, Kudos To SD, Who's Afraid Of The Dark

Republicans For Hillary?

There was a meeting in Washington yesterday of some evangelical conservatives, which I declined to attend. The purpose of the meeting, as it was pitched to me, was to form a third party if Donald Trump ends up winning the Republican presidential nomination.

That seemed like a "fool's errand" to me since 21 states and...

Thursday, March 17, 2016 -- Merrick The Moderate, All About Politics, Why It Matters, Media Notice

Merrick The Moderate? Hardly

We are learning more about President Obama's nominee to the Supreme Court, Judge Merrick Garland. The White House and its allies have attempted to spin a narrative that Garland is a moderate judge whom Republicans should be eager to confirm. But he is hardly a moderate.

Guess who showed up at the White House yesterday immediately after Garland's announcement? Cecile...

Obama's Supremely Bad Nominee

At the White House this morning, President Obama announced his nominee for the Supreme Court -- Judge Merrick Garland of the Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia.

The media are dutifully attempting to spin Garland as a "centrist" or a "consensus choice." Consider this headline from the Los Angeles Times: "...

Survival Tuesday

Voters are going to the polls today in five states: Florida, Illinois, Missouri, North Carolina and Ohio. For Democrats, 691 delegates are at stake. For Republicans, 358 delegates are up for grabs.

Some pundits have taken to calling today's round of voting "Survival Tuesday" because Republicans are entering the first round of "winner-take-all" contests,...

Monday, March 14, 2016 -- The Left Attacks, Double Standards, A Few Truths, A Brief Reminder

The Left Attacks

Of all the counterproductive things that have happened in the campaign this year, perhaps the most troubling took place Friday night. A left-wing mob organized by MoveOn.org, activists from the Black Lives Matter and Occupy Wall Street movements, and a dozen other radical groups, sent thousands of people into the streets of Chicago and inside an arena where Donald Trump was scheduled to speak. Bill...

Friday, March 11, 2016 -- Debate Recap, Islam & Hate, Iran Attacked U.S. Dam, Government Gone Wild

Debate Recap

Last night's Republican debate thankfully had a lot less vitriol and a good discussion of the issues. There were clear policy differences, but the exchanges avoided the schoolyard taunts that have dominated previous debates.

Perhaps the best example of the new-found civility came when Donald Trump tried to explain that while he was pro-Israel, he would, nevertheless, maintain a...
