Donald Trump will be the Republican nominee, if tonight’s debate mattered at all.
Donald Trump will be the Republican nominee, if tonight’s debate mattered at all.
Two weeks ago, I spoke at California State University at Los Angeles. The president of the university, William Covino, had attempted to cancel the lecture just three days in advance, after weeks of planning and activism by students.
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.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Senator Bernie Sanders (Socialist-Loonbagia) have now determined that their best strategy for defeating Republicans relies on ridiculous, overt pandering to black Americans.
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.
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.
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.
I have spoken at college campuses for well over a decade. I’ve been booed, protested, targeted for hate mail. I have never seen or experienced anything like the near-riot that occurred at California State University in Los Angeles on Thursday afternoon when I came to speak.
There’s good news for Beyonce and bad news for Beyonce.
While Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) ditched his planned speaking appearance at the Conservative Review Convention in South Carolina on Thursday, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) reportedly lit up the packed hall.
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.
Pope Francis, apparently desperate to reach out to the Catholic Church’s growing base in Latin America, spent the day slapping Americans in the face from across the US-Mexico border.
Hillary Clinton is a red-hot garbage dumpster fire of a candidate.
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.
The death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia doesn’t merely mark a tragedy for Constitutional philosophy – it may mark the death of American Constitutionalism as a whole.
Tomorrow night marks the only Republican debate scheduled before the crucial South Carolina primary.
Donald Trump has now made clear that the thrust of his campaign will not be conservatism. It will instead be populism and nationalism.
On Wednesday, the leftist humor site Funny or Die unleashed an interminably unfunny 50-minute fake biopic of Republican frontrunner Donald Trump, “The Art of The Deal.”
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.
Is Jeb! back? A new poll from Emerson College in New Hampshire — the pollsters who actually got it right in Iowa — shows Jeb Bush jumping to second in the state, behind frontrunner Donald Trump.
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. That meant that the media took the opportunity to reinforce the myth of St. Trayvon of the Blessed Hoodie, victim of brutal white racism. So, here’s the real Trayvon Martin story.
Eight years ago, Hillary Clinton watched as Barack Obama crushed her dreams, then used her body as a stepping stone to the presidency. Now, she has determined that she will become Obama. Hillary rightfully should have won the 2008 primaries
On Wednesday, President Obama, who has become the executive branch equivalent of a professional Salon.com commenter troll, took his traveling roadshow of perverse failure to the Islamic Society of Baltimore.
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.
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.
Does Donald Trump have a glass jaw?
The Republican candidates sans Donald Trump held their final debate Thursday night before the Iowa caucuses. The elephant in the room was Trump’s absence: would it hurt him? Would it help him?
So, with Donald Trump presumably out for tomorrow night’s final Republican debate before the crucial Iowa caucuses, what will that event look like?
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.
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?
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.
Hillary Clinton is one bad South Carolina poll away from a full-scale embrace of radical racial insanity.
The battle between Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Donald Trump has now divided insurgent Republicans into two camps: those who prize conservative values over all else, and those who prize slapping the establishment over all else. That, in essence, is the dividing line between the two candidates.
Republican frontrunner Donald Trump has launched into a full-scale attack on Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), the only candidate who had, until now, escaped Trump’s scorn and outrage.
The penultimate Republican debate prior to the Iowa caucuses contained plenty of fireworks, a plethora of great moments, and Governor John Kasich (R-OH) air chopping pineapples. There were winners, there were losers, and there were also-rans. It was, in short, the most telling debate thus far in the campaign.
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.
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.
For all those who revel in the fact that there are 374 days until President Obama finally gets the hell out of the White House, a cautionary note: Obama and his colleagues are rigging the bureaucracy so that their unique brand
On Friday, Texas Governor Greg Abbott provided a glimmer of hope for constitutional conservatives who want to see a restoration of balance between the massively overweening federal government and the increasingly irrelevant state governments.
Everyone knew that Barack Obama intended to infringe on American’s gun rights this week. It’s not as if Obama had been hiding it. He announced his intentions in advance, and then proceeded to drop a series of executive actions that, if implemented, would require the creation of a national gun registry.
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.
In the aftermath of Ammon Bundy’s group takeover of an empty government hut in the wilderness in response to the government’s egregious miscarriage of justice against the Hammond family, the left has given in to its ravenous, Twilight-style bloodlust.
Salon.com seems unable to understand just why so many Westerners have fears about the nature of Islam.
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.
The party is over. Last one out, turn out the lights.
This week, we’ve seen both grassroots conservatives and elitist establishment-types threaten to leave the Republican Party.
