Why Republicans Should Never Play Nice with Democrats

While Republican operatives scramble to appeal to minority voters by shifting positions, they seem to ignore the fact that the greatest obstacle to making inroads in minority communities isn’t policy but perception: the widespread perception, pushed by Democrats, that Republicans are racist, sexist, bigoted homophobes.

T Minus 49: GOP Odds of Senate Takeover Downgraded

With just over 7 weeks until the midterm elections, Republican chances to take control of the Senate have tumbled slightly. Two weeks ago, political handicapper Nate Silver estimated the GOP had a 64% chance of winning a Senate majority. On Tuesday, Silver lowered his estimate to 55%. The landscape still favors the GOP, but the trend-lines are ominous. 16 Sep 2014, 1:42 PM PDT

EPA Doubles Number of Coal Plant Closings

In the run-up to the “People’s Climate March” scheduled for September 21, the non-partisan U.S, General Accountability Office (GAO) just doubled its estimate for coal plants expected to retired to comply with the Obama Administration’s new Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) over the next decade. 16 Sep 2014, 1:06 PM PDT

Educational Materials with Common Core Stamp Selling Big

Now that Common Core seems to be taking over the curricula in states across the nation, companies furnishing educational materials are desperately trying to attract school districts and teachers to buy their materials by advertising them as aligning with Common Core standards. 16 Sep 2014, 10:48 AM PDT

Democrats Grow Antsy About Syria Vote

With the vote coming tomorrow, House Democrats said they are increasingly anxious about a proposal to authorize President Obama to arm and train Syrian rebels with the hope they will combat the Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists consolidating power in the region. 16 Sep 2014, 9:50 AM PDT

My Email Turns Republicans Into Conservatives

For the past several weeks, a group calling itself the "NRSC" has been inundating my inbox, warning that Obama was about to "grant amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants." I could combat this by donating money to ensure the Republicans win control of the Senate. Apparently, this "NRSC" is the National Republican Senatorial Committee who previously spent that past year and a half trying to pass amnesty under the guise of "comprehensive immigration reform." I must have a new email filter that turns even Republicans in Washington into conservatives. 16 Sep 2014, 8:50 AM PDT

Obama Calls For Gun Reforms That 'Respect Our Traditions'

"As we remember men and women taken from us so senselessly, we keep close their family and friends, stand with the survivors who continue to heal and pay tribute to the first responders who acted with skill and bravery," he said in a statement released on Tuesday. 16 Sep 2014, 8:40 AM PDT

Immigration Chicanery

The strategists who base their political advice on public opinion polls have just had a surprise. A new poll reports that the American people are now more likely to trust Republicans to handle immigration and less likely to trust Democratic plans to offer illegals a path to citizenship (a.k.a. amnesty). 16 Sep 2014, 7:13 AM PDT

Obama to Send 3,000 U.S. Soldiers to Fight Ebola

The Obama administration is ramping up its response to West Africa's Ebola crisis, preparing to assign 3,000 U.S. military personnel to the afflicted region to supply medical and logistical support to overwhelmed local health care systems and to boost the number of beds needed to isolate and treat victims of the epidemic. 15 Sep 2014

GOP Runs From Social Issues, Prepares For Long-Term Minority Status

On Monday, The New York Times reported that once again – for what must by, by this point, the 1,297th time – Democrats have decided to swivel to social issues for electoral purposes in advance of the 2014 election. “After a generation of campaigns in which Republicans exploited wedge issues to win close elections,” the paper reported, “Democrats are now on the offensive in the culture wars.” 15 Sep 2014

Is Keynes Misunderstood, Maligned by Critics?

In a September 11 Bloomberg article, economist Noah Smith claims that John Maynard Keynes, the architect of today’s government economic policies around the world, wasn’t a “socialist" or even a “progressive.“ He did not favor “a command economy.” 15 Sep 2014

T Minus 50: Looking For Signs of GOP Wave

The midterm elections are 50 days away. In many states, early and absentee voting will begin in the coming days. National polling numbers can hardly get worse for President Obama and the Democrats. Substantive news, whether the economy or foreign affairs, is unlikely to evolve favorably with Obama's policies. In addition, it is hard to imagine a political landscape more favorable to Republicans. Yet, with the election fast approaching, it is still an open question whether the GOP will capture the Senate. What is going on? 15 Sep 2014

Ian Paisley: The West's Religious Fanatic

Ulster unionist and Protestant minister Ian Paisley died Friday in Belfast, Northern Ireland. A polarizing political figure, Paisley's death affords partisans of all "colors" the opportunity to absorb and define his legacy. With sectarian violence again engulfing the Middle East and Africa, however, Paisley's life reminds us that the West is not as far removed from religious bigotry as we would like to believe. 15 Sep 2014

Scott Brown Also Ran on National Security in 2010

It is too easy to forget that the other issue Brown campaigned on in that election was opposition to the Obama administration’s attempts to try 9/11 mastermind Khaled Sheikh Mohammed, among other terrorists, in a federal court in New York City rather than a military tribunal in Guantanamo Bay. 15 Sep 2014

'Comeback Couple' Returns to Iowa: Hillary Teases POTUS Run, Bill Says GOP Doesn't Want Voters to Think

Still two for the price of one? After being dubbed the "comeback couple" (a reference to Bill Clinton's "comeback kid" moniker after his better-than-expected New Hampshire finish during his 1992 presidential campaign) by Sen. Tom Harkin at his final Steak Fry on Sunday, Bill and Hillary Clinton took their road show to Iowa, the state that humbled Hillary Clinton's presidential ambitions in 2008. 14 Sep 2014

'People's Climate March' Tied to International Corporations

The Climate Group, a nonprofit organization with partners like Dell, Ikea, HP, Nike, News Corp., Bloomberg and many governments and cities, is organizing the climate awareness activities. Many important figures of American and foreign governments are expected to make appearances, including President Barack Obama. 14 Sep 2014

Jim Webb: The Democrat Hillary Clinton Should Fear Most

The Democrat Hillary Clinton should fear the most has no chance of winning the party's presidential nomination. Freed from the interest groups and power brokers that he loathes and reluctantly played ball with in the Senate, Webb, who was anti-war before Howard Dean and railing against income inequality long before Elizabeth Warren, would instantly bracket Clinton from the right on cultural issues and the left on economic issues. 14 Sep 2014

NYT: 'Assault Weapons' A 'Myth' Democrats Created In 1990s

On September 13, the 20th anniversary of the signing of the federal assault weapons ban, The New York Times ran a column explaining that the very term "assault weapon" is one the "Democrats created" in the 1990s in order to ban "a politically defined category of guns." 14 Sep 2014
