They're Just Committing the Crimes Americans Won't Commit

With the San Francisco woman murdered by one of Barack Obama’s “new Americans,” we should ask: how much innocent blood will be spilled on the altar of the Left’s “fundamental transformation” of America? While callow and cowardly corporations are severing ties with Donald Trump because he dared speak a truth in an age of lies, the reality of far too many of the illegals invading our country is this: They are just committing the crimes Americans won’t commit. Some will say, of course, that Americans sometimes do such evil as well. But it’s also true that Americans do sometimes take...

America's Trump Card Trumping the Left

Catching bits of the news, my wife asked, “Did Donald Trump say something against Mexicans?” I replied, “No, Trump simply dared to state statistical facts exposing the high criminal element among the illegals flooding across our border.” I've read horrific articles about the torture, rape and murder of Mexican women and children during their illegal journey to America, not to mention the gang members and other bad people invading our homeland. The probability of getting raped is so high crossing the border illegally that women take birth control. And yet Trump was not supposed to alert the American people. The...

Dark Money group threatens Dems on opposing Iran nuclear deal (the Chicago way!)

Even as the contours of the nuclear deal with Iran remain unknown (though a total cave in is strongly suspected), a progressive “Dark Money” group, whose donors’ identities are hidden, is threatening Democrats who might oppose the deal to keep their mouths shut and vote with the administration. Adam Kredo reports in the Washington Free Beacon: A prominent progressive organization linked to the White House and claiming to work for dozens of like-minded groups is threatening to attack any congressional Democrat who objects to a final nuclear deal with Iran, even before the terms of any such agreement have been...

Donald Trump and 2015 / 2016 Considerations…

July 4, 2015Donald Trump and 2015 / 2016 Considerations… by sundance Make no mistake about it, Donald Trump can win the GOP nomination and the White House in 2016 – But it will take a herculean amount of support from ordinary Americans to do it. Like many others, I initially found myself doubtful that Donald Trump was going to actually mount a campaign. Now however, I’m increasingly and cautiously -even happily- optimistic he does actually intend to win the nomination. However, it’s going to take a huge amount of support from the body electorate to help Trump withstand what is...

A Conservative Firebrand From The Start, Ted Cruz Always Had A Plan

Boldness comes more naturally to Ted Cruz than compromise. Barely through his first year in the Senate, the Texas Republican bucked his party leaders and became the public face of a government shutdown while standing up for conservative ideals. Rewind three decades back, and you'd find Cruz selling a similar message as a teenager in Houston. You could say Cruz ran with a gang in high school. Their colors were blue jacket, white shirt, red tie. They called themselves the Constitutional Corroborators. And their leader was the head of a conservative think tank named Rolland Storey, who took them around...

Ted Cruz: ‘I Salute Donald Trump’ for Speaking Out on Immigration

Slowly but surely, some of Donald Trump‘s Republican rivals have come out to condemn his remarks about Mexican immigrant rapists and criminals. George Pataki got the ball rolling this week, and criticisms by Rick Perry, Marco Rubio, and others followed. But Ted Cruz––who defended Trump earlier this week––is still praising him. In a Meet the Press preview clip out tonight, Cruz told Chuck Todd,”I like Donald Trump. He’s bold, he’s brash.” He refused to get caught in a bout of Republican infighting. When Todd asked him if “rhetoric matters,” Cruz said, “I salute Donald Trump for focusing on the need...

Ted Cruz defends Donald Trump, slams 'Washington cartel' on immigration

Sen. Ted Cruz defended Donald Trump on immigration and called out “the Washington cartel” he says is ignoring the issue, in an interview to be broadcast Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”“I salute Donald Trump for focusing on the need to address illegal immigration,” Cruz said of his rival for the 2016 GOP nomination, adding that it “seems the favorite sport of the Washington media is to encourage some Republicans to attack other Republicans.”“I’m not interested in Republican on Republican violence,” he told host Chuck Todd, adding that “bold … brash” Trump “has a colorful way of speaking.”The Texas senator’s...

Specter Of McCain Haunts, Closed Primary Resolutions Pass

The specter of John McCain was present at a recent meeting the Arizona’s Legislative District 2, as Precinct Committeemen moved to pass a resolution to close the Republican primaries. Despite his operatives’ best efforts the resolution vehemently opposed by McCain passed. LD2 Chair Sergio Arellano, who told the group that he personally supported closed primaries, pleaded with attendees to delay the vote until Arizona GOP head Robert Graham could address the group. According to Arellano, Graham, who was in France, wanted the group to refrain from voting on the resolution until he could talk them out of it. Arellano entertained...

Donald Trump: Whose voters is he stealing?

Right now, Donald Trump is like a black hole whose stupendous gravitational pull is attracting a lot of media attention and some of the voters associated with the Republican 2016 presidential race. Which of his rivals in particular is this hurting? After all, Mr. Trump’s poll numbers have risen sharply since he said that this time, he’s actually, positively running. Polling is a zero-sum game: His rise means other folks have fallen. Let’s look at the numbers and see which of Trump’s fellow candidates they are. ((snip)) Nationally, Trump’s jump into the fray has affected Marco Rubio the most, according...

Bill and Hillary Clinton fight new demand for email server

Lawyers for former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have moved to block a conservative lawyer's effort to pry into emails stored on the Clintons' private server. In a motion filed Thursday evening in federal court in West Palm Beach, Fla., the Clintons' attorneys ask that conservative gadfly Larry Klayman be temporarily barred from demanding information in connection with a racketeering lawsuit he filed in March against the couple and the Clinton Foundation. The suit alleges that the Clintons used the private email server to frustrate Freedom of Information Act requests Klayman filed for records about...

New McLaughlin Poll: Establishment GOP Leaders Destroying GOP Brand

A just-released McLaughlin & Associates poll published in National Review has revealed a truly disastrous trend for national Republicans: one in six of all voters, 18 percent, disapproves of the job that President Obama is doing, but is not voting Republican. Right now both parties remain polarized in their vote for Congress. Republicans vote for Republicans 95 percent to 1 percent. Democrats vote for Democrats 90 percent to 5 percent. Independents are evenly split at 32 percent for each party, with 36 percent undecided. Among McLaughlin’s major findings is that a majority of Americans continue to disapprove of the job...

Lindsey Graham tears up talking about Joe Biden

Though they've butted heads on everything from the Iraq War to Obamacare to gas prices, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) got emotional when talking about his friendship with Vice President Joe Biden. In an interview with The Huffington Post published Friday, the South Carolina senator visibly choked up when talking about his relationship with Biden and the death of Biden's son Beau in June. "He's the nicest person I think I've ever met in my whole life," Graham said. "We don't agree on much, but I think he's been dealt a really gut blow," Graham said, referring to Beau's death....

Supreme Court Refusal Protects Illegal Immigrants' "Right to Vote"

Yet another rejection of constitutional principles by the Supreme Court has been overlooked in the furor over the pro-Obamacare and same-sex marriage decisions. This time, it’s not what the justices said, but what they refused to say that is noteworthy. Reuters reports that the high court’s refusal to hear an appeal of the decision in the case of Kobach, et al. v. Election Assistance Commission, et al, had the effect of upholding the ruling handed down last November by the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.

If no Black on the Ballot; what will the Black voter turnout be like in 2016? (Vanity)

I've asked this question for some time now: Without Obama, or any other Black, on the ballot for the Dems in 2016; what will the Black voter turnout be like? I say at least 5 percentage points less than in '08 and '12. The new has worn-off; the novelty is gone. They've had their Black President. I say that the Dems will NOT get Blacks to the polls this time around like they did for Obama. And even if Hillary has a Black Running Mate, I say the Black turnout will still be 5 percent less than the last two...

Brent Bozell On Scott Walker Hiring Brad Dayspring: ‘Get Rid Of This Cretin Immediately’

Media Research Center President Brent Bozell has some rather harsh words for Brad Dayspring, the former National Republican Senatorial Committee strategist who is now working for presidential hopeful Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker‘s SuperPAC. Dayspring is well-known for his hotheaded ways. His personality has even earned him a nickname in certain GOP circles: “Brad Dayscream.” As most who travel political Washington terrain know, when he departed then-House Maj. Leader Eric Cantor‘s office, he nearly came to blows with a senior staffer. Bozell, who was speaking in his capacity as Chairman of ForAmerica, is obviously not president of the Brad Dayspring Fan...

Six Senators Demand Ex-Im Bank Liquidation Plan

Ex-Im Bank supporters were wrong if they thought the bank’s opposition would trail off after the charter’s authorization expired on June 30. Six Republican senators Wednesday demanded a plan for “orderly liquidation” of the bank in a letter to Chairman Fred Hochberg. Ex-Im supporters felt modest comfort Tuesday knowing that a lapse in the charter’s authorization didn’t mean total demise, as it could still service existing accounts until Congress voted for reauthorization — if Congress voted for reauthorization. But the letter points out that one of the few allowable actions the bank can take without reauthorization is to “exercise certain...

House conservatives emboldened

A critical bloc of House conservatives has been invigorated by its victory over GOP leaders, who caved in a high-profile fight over a punished subcommittee chairman. The reinstatement of Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) is a small win for the months-old Freedom Caucus. But it could have broader implications when House Republicans pick a new leadership team after the 2016 elections. While Freedom Caucus founders insist they aren't focused on next year’s contests, the cluster of about 50 conservative rebels is gaining clout in the conference and will surely have a role to play if there's a choice presented to members....

Establishment Republicans Panic, NH Voters Respond to Trump: ‘Can’t be Bought, Won’t Back Down’

National Journal reports from New Hampshire: “[I]t’s Donald Trump whose showing in recent polls could give him center-stage status at televised debates that start in just five weeks. “Our country is honestly going to hell,” Trump said at a house party in Bedford, an upper-middle class community just outside Manchester. “The illegals are pouring into the country…. It’s far worse than anybody knows.” Trump offered a rambling monologue that stressed his ability to solve the nation’s problems because of his business acumen and his smarts – particularly compared to the “third-rate” governors and senators running in the Republican primary.”

Civil rights leaders demand Goodlatte move on Voting Rights Act reform (eliminate Voter ID)

A coalition of civil rights and other activists demanded Thursday that U.S. Rep. Bob Goodlatte take action to revive a provision of the 1965 Voting Rights Act in a downtown Roanoke rally of more than 300 people. “I’m here to tell you something, Congressman Goodlatte. Fix the Voting Rights Act!” said Priscilla Ouchida of the Japanese American Citizens League, one of more than two dozen groups represented. Organizers hope the rally — which included state activists and national figures — will ramp up public pressure on the Roanoke County Republican, who chairs the committee where efforts to update the voter...

John Boehner, GOP Establishment Targeting Ted Yoho

The Republican leadership is after U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla., but the North Florida congressman is trying to use that opposition to rally conservatives in his district. Yoho made national headlines earlier this year when he challenged U.S. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, to lead the House. While Yoho did not garner much support, other challengers to Boehner -- namely U.S. Rep. Dan Webster, R-Fla. .-- received more votes but the speaker retained the gavel. The House leadership pushed back at Yoho by cutting off travel funds, much like they did with U.S. Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, another outspoken conservative...

Are Key Republican Leaders in D.C. Being Blackmailed?

Are key Republican leaders in D.C. from the Senate, House and Supreme Court being blackmailed? Tell me you haven’t thought the exact same thing? Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in DC. Rotten like a dead fish left at the front door of a Congressmen’s office by the Obama Crime Family. Rotten like a photo of a Supreme Court Justice with his robe down at his ankles. Because what’s happening just isn’t normal. Please tell me how it’s possible that President Obama and his socialist cabal suffered the most massive and historic defeat in modern political history only 9...

Mitch McConnell Hits A New Low As Kentucky Thinks Dead Col. Sanders Would Be A Better Senator

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is so unpopular in Kentucky that the state’s voters thought KFC’s Colonel Sanders would be a better senator that McConnell. According to PPP, “In spite of KFC’s weak poll numbers Colonel Sanders remains a beloved figure, with 71% of voters seeing him favorably to only 8% with an unfavorable view. In fact they even think Colonel Sanders could be part of the solution to the problems in Washington- by a 47/27 spread voters in the state say they think Colonel Sanders would make for a better US Senator than Mitch McConnell. Too bad he’s dead.”...

Ted Cruz drops fundraising 'money bomb'

Sen. Ted Cruz is imploring supporters to donate $1 million to his presidential campaign by Tuesday, saying in a recorded email appeal that positive fundraising results are important to shaping the media narrative of the 2016 contest. The Texas Republican proved to be a surprisingly prodigious and effective fundraiser in the opening weeks of his White House bid. He raised $4 million online his first week and has told reporters that super PACs backing his candidacy have "banked" an eye-popping $37 million. Now, Cruz is asking his backers to help him close the second fundraising quarter strong to help him...
