Well, he may have his eyes on the campaign finance

Thu, 02/11/2016 - 19:05
Daily Caller, by Peter Hasson Posted By: Moritz55- Thu, 11 21 2016 06:21:34 GMT MSNBC’s Chris Matthews has been accused by Bernie Sanders supporters of being blatantly one'sided in favor of Hillary and against Bernie Sanders, to the point that thousands of progressives have signed a petition calling for MSNBC to suspend the host of “Hardball” “because of his constant shilling for Hillary Clinton.” The magazine Esquire sharply criticized Matthews’ recent interview with Clinton as “ahistorical and out of bounds” for his attacks on Sanders. Now, research by The Daily Caller reveals that Hillary’s biggest donors are backing Matthews’ wife — Kathleen Matthews — in her congressional race in Maryland, even though many of

Heidi Cruz Bizarrely Rants About How Ted Will Show America ‘The Face of God’

Thu, 02/11/2016 - 18:46
Mediaite, by Ken Meyer Posted By: Moritz55- Thu, 11 59 2016 05:59:10 GMT Seeing as how Ted Cruz‘s father Rafael is a preacher and that the candidate has a solid base of evangelical supporters, it shouldn’t come as any surprise that Cruz’s wife Heidi has been lobbying the religious influence while campaigning on her husband’s behalf. During a radio interview, Mrs. Cruz went all in when she promised that the Cruz campaign will show America “the face of God.” Talking with South Carolina radio host Vince Coakley Wednesday, Cruz noted that even if she weren’t married to the man, his political and faith'based credentials would be reason enough for her to work for

How Much Trouble Is Hillary Clinton In?

Thu, 02/11/2016 - 18:26
Politico Magazine, by Staff Posted By: Toledo- Thu, 11 19 2016 05:19:22 GMT After eking out a narrow victory in Iowa, Hillary Clinton just got beaten soundly—losing New Hampshire to Bernie Sanders by 22 percentage points, the biggest margin in a contested New Hampshire Democratic primary in decades. Just how much trouble is Clinton in now? She’s still leading national polls, but could this big Sanders win give the socialist senator enough momentum to pose a serious threat? We put this question to top political experts. From “this is now a real campaign” to “big trouble” for Clinton to “about what I expected,” here’s what they said about Tuesday night—and just how much damage

Rubio simply is not yet ready to lead

Thu, 02/11/2016 - 18:05
Washington Times, by Steve Deace Posted By: EddiesDad- Thu, 11 01 2016 05:01:47 GMT Too many people today have decided that when it comes to picking presidential candidates, we need to find one nicer than God. And so it is that up until now they have cast their lot with Marco Rubio, the senate wunderkind who is certain to the point of debilitating repetition that Barack Obama knows exactly what he is doing and is trying to change America. Remarkable. Even though Rubio is completely correct on that front, rarely has a presidential candidate been more wrong while trying to breathe life

Rush Limbaugh: Ted Cruz is the closest we’ve gotten to Ronald Reagan in our lifetimes

Thu, 02/11/2016 - 17:46
Hot Air, by Allahpundit Posted By: Desert Fox- Thu, 11 34 2016 04:34:00 GMT You can read his extended comments at his website. A Twitter pal tagged me this afternoon after Rush said this and claimed that he’d just endorsed Cruz; Redditors are interpreting it the same way. It does seem to follow logically that the biggest name in conservative talk radio, who’s been preaching Reagan conservatism to millions for 30 years, is dropping an endorsement when he calls a candidate the next best thing to Reagan himself. (Rush quasi'endorsed Mitt Romney in the 2008 primary in a similar way, complimenting him as the only Republican candidate who represented all three legs of the

Associated Press, by Steve Peoples Posted By: Desert Fox- Thu, 11 22 2016 04:22:16 GMT BLUFFTON, S.C. '' The best hope of the Republican establishment just a week ago, Marco Rubio suddenly faces a path to his party´s presidential nomination that could require a brokered national convention. That´s according to Rubio´s campaign manager, Terry Sullivan, who told The Associated Press that this week´s disappointing performance in New Hampshire will extend the Republican nomination fight for another three months, if not longer. It´s a worst'case scenario for Rubio and many Republican officials alike who hoped to avoid a prolonged and painful nomination fight in 2016. "We very easily could be looking at May ' or the

Super PAC plans anti'Trump blitz in SC ahead of primary

Thu, 02/11/2016 - 17:46
The State [SC], by Bristow Marchant Posted By: happywarrior- Thu, 11 45 2016 03:45:54 GMT A new super PAC headed by a former Mitt Romney campaign manager is planning an ad blitz in South Carolina in an attempt to block Donald Trump’s path to the Republican nomination. Our Principles PAC is taking credit for the real estate mogul’s second'place finish in the Iowa caucuses behind Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, after the group blanketed the state just weeks after it was formed. In a 10'day media assault, the PAC spent $2.5 million lambasting the frontrunner over the air, on the phone and in print as someone out of step with Republican voters, using his own words

Hillary´s use of the gender card isn´t working

Thu, 02/11/2016 - 17:25
Union Leader (NH), by Jonah Goldberg Posted By: Drive- Thu, 11 43 2016 03:43:14 GMT Hillary Clinton is not a woman, and that’s a triumph for feminism and a problem for Hillary. Let me clarify. Yes, technically she is female. But millions of Americans don’t think of her gender; they think of, well, Hillary Clinton. Some may think of her as a heroic liberal technocrat. Others as a deeply partisan politician. The list goes on: She’s a supportive (or enabling) wife, a great (or terrible) former secretary of state, a left'wing bully or a victim of political witch hunts. What she is not is an icon for “womanhood.” This is a significant victory for feminism, though not for

USA Today, by Elizabeth Weise Posted By: NorthernDog- Thu, 11 35 2016 03:35:35 GMT Close to 100 Intel cafeteria workers and supporters held a rally outside of the chip maker´s headquarters in Santa Clara, Calif. Wednesday afternoon to highlight the growing inability of low'wage workers to survive in an area where rents are rising to stratospheric heights. “Here in the economy in Silicon Valley, we struggle. I’m a single mom of two children. I had to move in with my ex'mother'in'law because I can’t afford to rent my own apartment,” said Nahima Aguiniga, 35. She works full time putting out coffee, washing dishes, mopping and running a cash register for Guckenheimer Enterprises, the food

What your government is up to while you’re watching football

Canada Free Press, by Judi McLeod Posted By: snowcloud- Thu, 11 32 2016 03:32:54 GMT While 111.9 million viewers, making it the third most'watched television event in U.S. history, were watching the Super Bowl—a perfect captive audience for Beyonce’s halftime political tribute to Black Lives Matter and the New Black Panthers, this is what the strong arm of the government was doing. In the U.S. government agencies were getting ready to impose solitary confinement on all 16 participants in the Oregon standoff, held in custody with no criminal charges laid against them. Even most terrorists are spared solitary confinement. But Islamic terrorists have free reign over civilians, not government officials. The same government that allows terrorists masquerading as

Breitbart London, by Chris Tomlinson Posted By: happywarrior- Thu, 11 31 2016 03:31:41 GMT Christians, homosexuals and women are fleeing asylum centres in Germany in ever growing numbers due to acts of violence, intolerance and crime perpetrated by Muslim men. According to German newspaper Die Welt, the violence toward ethnic minorities, religious minorities and women continues to skyrocket across German asylum centres. Muslim men tear up Bibles and assault Christians, sexually abuse women and children, and beat up homosexuals. The news has led to calls from human rights campaigners to say enough is enough.

The backstory behind 2016´s headlines

Thu, 02/11/2016 - 16:25
Aspen Times (CO), by Melanie Sturm Posted By: Aspenhuskerette- Thu, 11 14 2016 03:14:31 GMT In this topsy-turvy election year, wonders never cease, as Americans Think Again about how to throw the bums out, even unelected bureaucrats. The willingness to break with long-standing political norms isn’t surprising, considering voter anger, pessimism and spiking anxieties. Recent surveys of Americans show that overwhelming majorities believe the country is on the wrong track, the American Dream is unachievable, and our powerful, unaccountable government is America’s biggest threat. Consequently, political dynasties have been rendered passe, as mega-donor darlings Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton discovered en route to their coronations. Not even their powerful superPACs (funded by unlimited individual, corporate and
