Probing for Clues in the Iowa Caucus Numbers
Now that the results of last Monday's Iowa caucuses are in, speculation naturally turns to next Tuesday's New Hampshire primary.
White Rapper Confesses 'White Privilege'
Macklemore is the stage name of a white rapper from Seattle named Ben Haggerty. He and his publicists are currently trying to convince the hip-hop press and the music media to notice the greatness of his new nine-minute song "White Privilege II."
Conservatives Shouldn't Throw around 'Republican Obama' Label Lightly
That's the new hot attack on Sen. Marco Rubio. Ted Cruz leveled the epithet at Rubio just days before the Iowa caucuses, which is a little ironic since Cruz has been called the same thing in the past.
Ted Cruz and the Body of Christ
There is a misplaced fear -- shared, I'm sad to say, by many on the right -- that Christian conservatives are zealots, theocrats and all-around bogeymen.
An Open Letter to Jeb Bush
Dear Gov. Bush: There are many ways to express your love of country. One is to serve as president. In your case, that path seems closed. Since April, you spent the better part of $15 million in Iowa, yet you came sixth, winning just 2.8 percent of the vote and one delegate.
The GOP Did Good in Iowa
I don't know how the primaries will turn out in New Hampshire next week. But I was glad to see Republican voters in Iowa prick some of the air out of the Trump balloon Monday night and lift Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio to the top of the GOP heap.
A (Much) Better Year
On Wednesday the US media interrupted its saturation coverage of the presidential primaries to report on President Barack Obamas visit to a mosque in Maryland. The visit was Obamas first public one to a mosque in the US since entering the White House seven years ago.
Donald Trump won more votes in the Iowa caucuses than any Republican candidate in history.
Seeking a Spark in New Hampshire
Votes are stubborn little things. Votes have none of the sparkle and shine of campaign rhetoric. Votes don't soar; they sink in. Votes are precious to, and deeply felt by, the men and women who cast them, but the candidates stop catering to votes as soon as they're cast.
Ambition vs. Conviction on the Debate Stage
In the last Democratic debate before the New Hampshire primary, Hillary Clinton came up with her fourth explanation for the gluttonous speaking fees and campaign contributions that the financial sector and investment firms "Wall Street," in liberal shorthand have been showering on her for so long.
CNN's Hypocrisy Exposed
It is unfortunate that the Ted Cruz campaign and Rep. Steve King sent out misleading and even erroneous information about Dr. Ben Carsons campaign plans, for which Cruz and King have apologized. But CNN is also to blame, and its self-righteous, overly-indignant condemnation of the Cruz campaign exposes its own hypocrisy.
Obama's Mosque Speech Was a Dangerous Fantasy
For eight years now, the president has reprimanded the American people for their attitudes about Islam. And Barack Obama's big speech to the Islamic Society of Baltimore -- granted, filled with many harmless platitudes -- was no different, leaving little room for any honest dialogue about ideology or faith. Many of the president's ideas about "tolerance," in fact, are antithetical to the American experience, not something to celebrate.
Doing the Honorable Thing in New Hampshire
New Hampshire may well be the end of the campaign trail for more GOP hopefuls, as Iowa was for Rand Paul, Rick Santorum and Mike Huckabee. All three ran largely positive campaigns and comported themselves with dignity and grace when they bowed out. Unfortunately, the same can't be said for some of those hanging on by a thread in New Hampshire. Chris Christie and Jeb Bush, in particular, have decided their best chance to stay in the race is to attack other candidates.
Bernie Sanders Champions YUGE Profits for U.S. Corporations (But Only in Cahoots with Communists)
Last night a Bernie Sanders declared North Korea our biggest foreign threat. Clearly North Korea is a very strange situation because it is such an isolated country run by a handful of dictators, or maybe just one, who seems to be somewhat paranoid. And, who had nuclear weapons.
You Want Socialism? Look at the 10 Percent Jobless Rate in Europe
The legions of young voters who are flocking to Bernie Sanders' socialist banner is depressing.
Aspiring NJ Cop Finally Gets His Firearms Privileges Restored
A small but important Second Amendment victory was handed to one aspiring cop in New Jersey last week.
Cruz vs. Rubio
I have, since last September, written several times that I think the 2016 campaign comes down to a race between Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. The loss in Iowa after leading in the ten polls preceding the caucuses has taken the wind out of Donald Trump's sails. He is refusing to invest in New Hampshire and will not buy expansive data to micro-target voters.
The Bill Ayers-Dinesh D’Souza Debate: Bill Ayers Still Teaching Revolution
The Bill Ayers-Dinesh DSouza showdown on February 3, at the University of Michigan was billed as a debate about American exceptionalism. It began with Bill Ayers giving his opening statement, Every human being is of incalculable worth.
The More Republican Senators Hate Cruz the More America-Loving Voters Should Back Him
Theres a reason why nearly zero Republican Senators are rushing to the microphones to endorse Ted Cruz. Compared to his bold attempts to topple the presidents middle-class-crushing, business-squashing, government-dependency-boosting, liberty-erasing imperialism, they look like the Lollipop Guild all obediently singing to Obamas tune. So they hate Ted Cruz.
The $1 Trillion Elephant in the Room
In the midst of the election circus and pageantry, it seems once again fiscal policy issues have taken a backseat.
Muslim Women: Obama's Slap in the Face
"To Muslim womens rights activists fighting for equal access to mosques as part of a broader campaign for reform from equal education for women and girls to freedom from so-called 'honor killings', the presidents visit to a mosque that practices such blatant inequity represents a step backwards."
Medicare Fraud Is Rampant
Obamas pen is mightier than the sword. He wields it like a weapon, thats for sure
Fr. Marcel Guarnizo:
Have You Been “Trumped”?
When analyzing the true worth of a potential investment it is critical that the numbers on the balance sheet justify the valuation being given to the investment.
Heroin: Blame It On America
Any politician who claims to care about the drug overdose deaths sweeping the nation, but does not demand that we build a wall, deport illegal aliens and end the anchor baby scam, is a liar.
