Monday, March 21, 2016 -- Big Day In D.C., Talk About Chutzpah, Intolerant Left, Obama Snubbed Again

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.

Later on, he will deliver a serious, policy-oriented speech before 18,000 attendees at the American...

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...

Wednesday, March 16, 2016 -- Obama's Supremely Bad Nominee, Everything Is At Stake, Results, Going Forward

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.

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...

Wednesday, March 9, 2016 -- Results, Betrayed, Angst & Discontent, Kudos To Buzz

The Results: Democrats

Bernie Sanders stunned the pundits and proved the pollsters wrong yesterday. The last poll before the Michigan primary gave Hillary Clinton a whopping 27-point lead. But Sanders' voters ignored the polls and gave him a 50% to 48% victory over Hillary. One commentator said the Michigan polling was "among the greatest polling errors in primary history."

But Mrs. Clinton had some...

Four More Today

Republican voters in Hawaii, Idaho, Michigan and Mississippi are going to the polls today to cast their ballots in the presidential primaries. Democrats are voting today in Michigan and Mississippi.

Michigan is the biggest prize at stake for both parties. Most polls show Donald Trump holding double-digit leads over his nearest competitor, although one poll did find John Kasich narrowly...
