5 Ways the Iranians Have Made Obama Look Like an Idiot

On Tuesday, the Iranian government test-fired ballistic missiles in violation of international agreements. When called on it, they threatened to walk away from a deal cut with the Obama administration and the G5+1 last year that freed the country of sanctions in return for commitments to stop nuclear arms development.

Debate Grades: Donald Trump Flip-Flops and Flounders, But Will It Matter?

Thursday night’s contentious, explosive, and altogether humiliating crapshow of a debate may not have any impact on the Republican nomination race. Donald Trump has a significant delegate lead; Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) trails him heavily in Florida; Ohio Governor John Kasich has precisely one state in which he matters; and Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has to wait for a consolidated field beyond Super Tuesday in order to compete with Trump nationwide.

It’s Time for Rubio to Go

On SEC Super Tuesday, Donald Trump cleaned up. He won seven states and now leads the field with 319 delegates entering a comfortable stretch for him before winner-take-all states kick in.

7 Worst Moments from the Oscars

The Oscars on Sunday night represented a perfect showcase for the self-congratulatory left. From transgenderism to Black Lives Matter, from global warming to campus sexual assault, every hot button issue for the left received a turn on camera. And when one Republican appeared, the show seemed to stop for just a moment, before continuing on in its journey to leftist utopia.

Mr. Pope, Tear Down This Wall

The Pope obviously has his priorities well in order: he says he can’t judge homosexuals who consider themselves Catholic, but he’s happy to judge anyone in favor of border control. He’ll rip capitalism – the very economic system acting as a magnet from the Marxist countries of Latin America – and jabber about global warming, but say little to nothing about the Christians and Jews being slaughtered in the Middle East by Muslims.

Three Reasons Not to Trust Republicans’ Failure Theater on Justice Scalia Replacement

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has now promised to stifle any judicial nominee President Obama makes for the Supreme Court following the death of Justice Antonin Scalia. “The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president,” he stated.

Twilight of the Gods: New Hampshire Voters Reject Clinton , Bush Dynasties in Epic Defeats

On Tuesday night, the establishment of both parties got hammered. On the Democratic side of the aisle, the most establishment candidate in American history, Hillary Rodham Clinton, got demolished by a 74-year-old loonbag socialist – she’s currently losing by more than 20 points in the state that saved her campaign in 2008, and a state she led by 56 points one year ago.

Media Pay Homage to Trayvon Martin on 21st Birthday. Here’s the Real Story.

On Friday, Trayvon Martin’s name began trending again on Twitter. It’s been four years since Martin was killed by neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida – and today was Martin’s birthday.

Exit Polls: Late Movement Hurt Donald Trump, Boosted Marco Rubio

With Ted Cruz’s come-from-behind victory in Iowa and Marco Rubio’s surge, we now move forward to New Hampshire knowing less than we did coming into Iowa. Will Donald Trump collapse? Does Rubio have any plans to win any state before mid-March? Can Cruz consolidate enough support to stop either one of the other two candidates? Iowa gave us few indicators.

Cruz Draws First Blood

The fight didn’t end tonight. It began. There are three viable candidates for the Republican nomination. But the frontrunner, at least for now, is no longer Donald Trump. It’s the best-organized, best-funded, most conservative member of the field: Cruz.

WSJ’s Stephens: Cruz Should Go Screw Himself

We’re one week out from the Iowa caucuses, and it’s becoming crystal clear that for the establishment, there’s one man who must be stopped: Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX). The latest emissary of the anti-Cruz establishment right is the Wall Street Journal’s Bret Stephens.

Is Donald Trump Conservative? Here’s the Rundown

It’s worthwhile exploring Trump’s worldview. To do that, we must separate two elements of that worldview: his current positions, and his historic positions. The first goes to supposed conservatism, and the second goes to credibility – even if he says he’s conservative today, should you believe him?

How Ted Cruz Can Win Iowa

In the aftermath of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin’s endorsement of Donald Trump, conventional wisdom says that Trump is back on top in the first primary state of Iowa after Ted Cruz jumped ahead in the state polls a few weeks ago.

5 Lies the Obama Administration Told to Defend Iran’s Humiliating Seizure of Navy Sailors

Barack Obama has a history of humiliating photo-ops associated with his full-blown Radical Islam Denial Syndrome: the burning consulate in Benghazi juxtaposed with Obama partying it up in Vegas with Beyonce; the dead bodies of ISIS-slain Parisians juxtaposed with Obama telling the world that ISIS could be fought with a climate change summit; corpses in San Bernardino juxtaposed with Obama simultaneously telling a national audience that ISIS was contained.

Obama’s SOTU: The Transformative President Triumphant

Last night featured a terrific national championship college football game, but tonight, it will be President Obama spiking the football. Obama’s State of the Union address tonight will be a triumphalist reading of his massive accomplishments.

Teary Obama Won’t Cry For Constitution

‪On Tuesday, President Obama unleashed a disgusting assault on more than half of Americans, suggesting over and over again that if they cared about dead children, they’d simply make way for his gun-control agenda.

George Will: Beating Hillary Less Important Than Stopping Trump

As the end of the year approaches, Donald Trump is solidly ensconced at the top of the Republican polls nationally. The man just behind him? Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), an establishment bugaboo. The establishment’s favorite candidate, Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), is currently running far behind in national polling, a distant third in Iowa, and in a deadlock with Cruz and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie for second in New Hampshire.

Is the Republican Party Over?

The party is over. Last one out, turn out the lights.
