Paul Ryan Says Obama’s Hits on Trump “Degrades the Presidency,” but Defends Haley

There is no love lost between Paul Ryan and me, but not everything about this interview was bad. In fact, while disagreeing with Trump, he explained one aspect of his rise quite well. “I think people are really nervous. I think people are really anxious. And that’s because they believe that the country as they know it, this American idea — the condition of your birth doesn’t determine the outcome of your life  … so many people are worried that’s leaving us. “People are going to say, I Read more […]

Did Anyone Else Hate Nikki Haley’s Response to… Donald Trump? Ted Cruz?

The speech above was purported to be a response to Barack Obama’s State of the Union message. Hardly. I only bothered to listen to the speech because my Facebook feed yesterday was full of attacks on Ann Coulter for the tweets about Haley’s speech. While I didn’t bother to find out what Coulter wrote (because I don’t really care), I did get curious about Haley’s speech. And, for the record, I have heard nothing but good things about Haley. I certainly liked her more than Trump and, in Read more […]

Kathleen Parker Doesn’t Understand Christianity or Ted Cruz

Unbelievable. Listen to what she says about Ted Cruz on CNN: The video was posted by Newsbusters: On the 11 January 2016 edition of CNN’s AC360, Washington Post columnist Kathleen Parker revealed her own ignorance of Christian teachings, as she targeted Senator Ted Cruz for something “astonishing” he recently said at a campaign stop: “”I don’t think there’s any chance Ted Cruz can win a general — and here’s why….He said…’It’s time for the Body of Christ to rise up and support me.’ Read more […]

Hillary Clinton Considered Causing Protests in Israel

When I first heard this news I was amazed. But then I realized that it wasn’t as bad as what we did in Ukraine. The Washington Free Beacon reports, “Clinton Considered Secret Plan to Spark Palestinian Protests.” Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton considered a secret plan created by her then-advisers to foment unrest among Palestinian citizens and spark protests in order to push the Israeli government back to the negotiating table, according to emails released as part of the investigation Read more […]

Nikki Haley Dreams the Impossible Dream: Republicans Will Cut Spending

I mentioned how Nikki Haley seemed to robotically read her teleprompter. At 5:53 comes a line I only heard at first. I Had to go back and check it on the video because I couldn’t believe she delivered it with a straight face. But she did! the robotic simile didn’t waver as she spewed nonsense all over viewers: If we held the White House, taxes would be lower for working families, and we’d put the brakes on runaway spending and debt. Seriously? The Republicans who gave Obama (and their Read more […]

Obama Touts Iran Nuclear Deal; Iran Takes 10 U.S. Sailors Captive

The real state of the union after seven years of President Obama: an international joke. While Obama tried to get America to hop on board his delusion train one last time during his State of the Union speech Tuesday, the Iranian government seized two U.S. Navy boats that entered Iranian waters and held the crews captive. The Iranian government accused the crews of “snooping” but said it will release them “promptly.” (Update: The sailors were reportedly released this morning.) Older readers Read more […]

Is Hillary Going to Even Win the Nomination?

First, it seems that Bernie Sanders is leading Hillary Clinton in Iowa: As I predicted people find Sanders more trustworthy. That combined with the news from New Hampshire makes me seriously wonder if Hillary has any chance of getting the nomination. According to CBS News, Bernie Sanders now leads Hillary Clinton by 14 points in New Hampshire, according to the latest Monmouth University Poll of likely New Hampshire voters who are likely to vote in the first-in-the-nation primary in February. Fifty-three Read more […]

Hillary Clinton Thinks the Gun Issue Can Give Her an Edge on Bernie Sanders

Hillary Clinton doesn’t seem to understand the problem she faces. The Washington Times reports, “Clinton aims to outflank Sanders on guns.” With her lead over Sen. Bernard Sanders evaporating in polls in Iowa and New Hampshire, Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton is turning to the issue of guns, hoping a spate of high-profile shootings will boost her campaign and drive a wedge between Mr. Sanders and the liberal voters he champions. Appearing on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Monday, Read more […]

This Is How Intensely Trump Is Trying to Win

In my opinion the news media is covering this wrong. Newser.com summarizes: While other candidates have made Iowa their home away from home, spending the night in hotels and motels before America’s first caucus, Donald Trump has taken a different approach. Trump flies home to Manhattan in one of his private planes or copters so he can snooze in his own bed in Trump Tower every night, reports Reuters. For instance, Trump attended eight campaign events in Iowa in November and December, and he hightailed Read more […]

Debbie Wasserman Schultz Explains Why Young Women Lack Enthusiasm for Hillary

Why would anyone want Hillary Clinton as President? Between her email scandal, her role in Benghazi, her husband, and many other factors, it is surprising that she has a chance of becoming President. Apparently, I am not the only one who feels that way. Older Democrats detect a lack of enthusiasm for Hillary among younger liberals. Debbie Wasserman Schultz was recently interviewed in the New York Times and she was asked about this issue. Do you notice a difference between young women and women Read more […]

Bernie Sanders Says His 25 Years in Congress Show He’s not a Career Politician

On ABC’s “This Week,” host Martha Raddatz interviewed Bernie Sanders. The opening exchange was breathtaking. RADDATZ: Bernie Sanders is hard at work on the campaign trail this holiday weekend. And he joins me this morning from New Hampshire. Happy new year, Senator Sanders. We noticed that today is the 25th anniversary of your first day in Congress. Twenty five years, what do you say to critics who say the country needs a president from outside Washington and not a career politician? SANDERS: Well, Read more […]

Sorry, Obama. Only 2% Believe Guns Are our Most Important Problem. More Worry about Government and the Economy.

You may have noticed that Barack Obama and the media are spending a lot of time trying to convince the American people that the availability of guns is a major issue facing the nation. According to Gallup, both have completely failed in getting us to stampede in that direction. Only 2 percent of American think guns the most important issue. What are Americans’ chief concerns? The top ones were the federal government itself (!), the economy, jobs, immigration, and healthcare. Here are the Read more […]
