Republican Candidates Poll Better than Hillary

rubio The Fox headline, in my opinion, is rather biased: "FOX News Poll: Rubio does best against Clinton in 2016 ballot test." Republicans want a candidate who can beat Hillary Clinton. A new Fox News poll finds Marco Rubio performs best against the presumptive Democratic nominee. Rubio has an eight-point edge: 50 percent to Clinton’s 42 percent. This isn't inaccurate, but I think the more amazing story is that Hillary doesn't poll better than any top Republican candidate! Then again, Clinton -- Read more [...] Continue reading →

Hillary Clinton Advocates Lawlessness: No Illegal Immigrants

Hillary_Clinton_2016 Hillary Clinton could advocate a variety of positions on immigration that, while they might be wrong and dangerous, would not necessarily be lawless. But she has wholly committed herself to pretending that current laws don't exist and we must never mention that people have broken those laws. Yahoo Politics reports, "Clinton promises never to say ‘illegal immigrants’ again." Hillary Clinton addressed criticism of her use of the phrase “illegal immigrants” in a Facebook chat hosted by Read more [...] Continue reading →

Rand Paul: We Are Risking Nuclear War with Russia!

rand paul cspan As Tad Cronn has written, Barack Obama has repeatedly antagonized Russia. Where will it end? One candidate is concerned for the ultimate failure in foreign policy. Joel Gehrke writes in the National Review: "Rand Paul: Downed Russian Jet Could Lead to Nuclear War." Paul’s relatively dovish foreign-policy views have left him in a lonely political position of late, as international crises and terrorist attacks created an opening for hawkish rivals such as Senators Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) and Ted Read more [...] Continue reading →

Hillary: "Every survivor of sexual assault deserves to be ... believed"

Kennedy-and-Clinton I guess in a way, if the person is a genuine  "survivor of sexual assault" then she isn't lying. But in reality the only way to practice such a command is simply believe everyone who claims to have been sexually assaulted. According to the Daily Caller, "Backfire: Hillary Tweets All Sexual Abuse Accusers Deserve To Be ‘Believed,’ Is Reminded Of Her Husband." On the night CNN aired a controversial and, as many legal critics call it, flawed documentary on sexual assault on college campuses, Read more [...] Continue reading →

Cruz vs. White House Terror Apologists

tedCruzSuit Presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz called out President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry over their public comments this week in the wake of the Paris massacre. After Obama publicly criticized Republicans (though not the dozens of Democrats who have joined them) for seeking to temporarily block importation of Syrian refugees Cruz said, "Instead of engaging in political warfare, how about the president do his job as commander-in-chief? "He seems more upset that Republicans are calling Read more [...] Continue reading →

Hillary Goes After Comedians

Hillary-Clinton Judicial Watch reports, "Clinton Goes after Laugh Factory Comedians for Making Fun of Her." In what appears to be a first for a serious presidential contender, Hillary Clinton’s campaign is going after five comedians who made fun of the former Secretary of State in standup skits at a popular Hollywood comedy club. A video of the short performance, which is less than three minutes, is posted on the website of the renowned club, Laugh Factory, and the Clinton campaign has tried to censor it. Besides Read more [...] Continue reading →

Huma Abedin: Hillary Clinton "Easily Confused"

hillary oligarchy is a mainstream news site one wouldn't expect to cite Judicial Watch or the Hot Air blog, but yesterday they cited both: "Clinton 'Often Confused,' Aide Wrote in 2013." A newly released email about Hillary Clinton is making headlines, though it's not because of a security breach. In it, top aide Huma Abedin tells another aide that Clinton is "easily confused." The full exchange from 2013, as obtained by conservative group Judicial Watch:  Abedin to staffer Monica Hanley: "Have Read more [...] Continue reading →

No Syrian Refugees in Texas according to Governor Greg Abbott

benCarson One of the basic responsibilities of government is to protect us from foreign attack. Thus, the decision of every state governor should be a no-brainer. A Dallas Morning News blog reports, "Gov. Greg Abbott: Texas will not accept any Syrian refugees." Texas will not participate in the resettlement of Syrian refugees in the wake of the Paris terrorist attack, Gov. Greg Abbott announced on Monday. The governor wrote to President Barack Obama to express concerns about the vetting process to resettle Read more [...] Continue reading →

The Democrat Legacy: Low Wages

minimum wage Politico had an interesting headline this weekend: "The Democrats' wage problem." Democrats were gleeful this week when Donald Trump blurted out in Tuesday's debate that “wages [are] too high.” But as Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Martin O'Malley prepare to debate Saturday night, the Democrats have a wage problem of their own: American incomes have dropped during the Obama presidency. It's a vulnerability that Republicans haven't figured out how to exploit, and it's clearly one of the Read more [...] Continue reading →

The Quest for Control: Face-Scanning Political Ads

Diversity of thought Big Brother's eyes followed you across the room. But that was just an illusion to intimidate you. Real life is worse. From Raw Story: "Political billboards are now scanning your face for your reactions." 2016 presidential candidates have a new option in their quest to sway voters. “Neuropolitics” is the attempt to read your mind by scanning facial expressions and feeding them into an algorithm. Biofeedback—including heart rate, eye movements, and skin conditions—can  also be captured and Read more [...] Continue reading →

Hillary Laughs as Questioner Discusses Strangling Fiorina

HillaryClinton What's good for the gander should be good for the goose. Remember when an audience member-slash-Democrat-plant at a Trump rally called President Obama a Muslim, and The Donald had to put up with a round of media criticism for not correcting the (alleged) error? The questioner described Muslims in the United States as a "problem" and asked "When can we get rid of them?" Suddenly, Trump was an anti-Muslim zealot and "wingnut" because he didn't take some random guy to task and instead gave Read more [...] Continue reading →

Breitbart Warned Fox Will Sabotage Anti-TPP Candidates at Debate

bias Breibart editors were worried that the pro-Obamatrade debate moderators will try to trip up anti-TPP candidates: There may be trouble ahead for the top candidates at tonight’s Republican debate, sponsored by Fox Business News and the Wall Street Journal. Why? There may be a slew of new “gotcha” trade questions posed by the debate’s trio of free-trade favoring moderators, Maria Bartiromo, Neil Cavuto, and Gerard Baker. These free-trade proponents have never seen a so-called free-trade agreement Read more [...] Continue reading →
