After NH confab: Rubio rising,
Walker steady, Bush plodding,
Christie returning from dead

Via C-Span coverage, some thoughts on the state of the 2016 GOP primary race after the two-day Republican Leadership Summit in New Hampshire: 1) Marco Rubio is clearly enjoying a moment. He is relaxed and funny in front of crowds, flying high after a well-received campaign announcement. In addition, Rubio appears to be winning growing support among some GOP establishment figures and opinion makers — the ones who worry about Jeb Bush´s dynastic problem, fear Scott Walker is not ready for prime time, and have given up on Chris Christie. But Rubio has to convince other Republicans who worry that he

Saving a Plane That Saves Lives

WASHINGTON — WHEN American troops find themselves fighting for their lives, there is no better sound than an A-10, a plane officially nicknamed the Thunderbolt II but known affectionately by the troops as the Warthog, firing its enormous 30-millimeter gun at the enemy. It might not be pretty, but the A-10 is our most capable close air-support aircraft, and its arrival on the battlefield signals survival for our troops and annihilation for our enemies. Yet over the last two years, the Obama administration and the Air Force leadership have been working overtime to mothball our entire A-10 fleet, 13 years ahead

In Spanish Interview, Marco Rubio
Says It’s ‘Important Not To Cancel’
Obama’s Executive Amnesty

Florida U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio offered a measure of support for President Obama’s first executive amnesty program, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, during a recent interview he conducted in Spanish this week with Univision’s Jorge Ramos. Rubio’s comments mark a reversal of sorts from criticism he offered of DACA last year, and they also put him at odds with the conservative Republican base, which he will need in his corner if he hopes to win the 2016 GOP presidential nomination. “But DACA, I think it’s important not to cancel it from one moment to the next because you already have people benefiting

"They came With A Battering Ram.” Cindy Archer, one of the lead architects of Wisconsin’s Act 10 — also called the “Wisconsin Budget Repair Bill,” it limited public-employee benefits and altered collective-bargaining rules for public-employee unions — was jolted awake by yelling, loud pounding at the door, and her dogs’ frantic barking. The entire house — the windows and walls — was shaking. She looked outside to see up to a dozen police officers, yelling to open the door. They were carrying a battering ram. “I was so afraid,” she says. “I did not know what to do.” She grabbed

The New York Times reported Sunday evening that a forthcoming investigative bombshell book on Hillary and Bill Clinton will soon be the focus of major feature stories and is regarded as “the most anticipated and feared book of a presidential cycle.” For weeks, news outlets from the Washington Post to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer have alluded that the highly-anticipated May 5 release of Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich by three-time New York Times bestselling investigative journalist Peter Schweizer could be a presidential game-changer. Schweizer is President of the

Despite repeated claims to the contrary, Mayor de Blasio is positioning himself to be the leftist “progressive” alternative to Wall Street-friendly Hillary Rodham Clinton as the Democratic candidate for president, a national party operative told The Post. De Blasio’s hope, the operative said, is a “draft de Blasio’’ movement will develop among progressive activists over the next several months that will lead to the mayor being able to defeat Clinton in the primary elections next year in much the same way leftist Sen. George McGovern successfully challenged the initially front-running establishment Democratic candidate, Sen. Edmund Muskie, more than 40 years ago.

People Now Whining that
Extroverts Have ‘Social Privilege’

Social Justice Warriors have found a new thing to be upset about: the institutional oppression that introverts endure because “this culture has been built for extroverts” and that gives them “social privilege.” No. I’m not kidding. It’s a thing, and apparently such a big thing that an Everyday Feminism contributor named James St. James felt the need to write a whopping 1,700-word piece about it, titled “6 Examples of How Extroverts Benefit From Their Social Privilege.” In plain language, those six “privileges” are: 1. Not having to “forsake your basic needs” like food and going to the bathroom because your

MSNBC announced Sunday morning that Hardball host Chris Matthews would interview President Barack Obama Tuesday, focusing on “free trade and news of the day,” per the company’s statement. Matthews last interviewed Obama in December of 2013, for which he was criticized by Fox hosts for appearing like a “fanboy.” (Mathews returned the compliment last month.) Prior to that interview, Matthews had wondered on air about whether the president was avoiding him. “I enjoy just duking it out with politicians at a distance,” he said at the time. “I don’t need to beg them to come on my show. But I

The book does not hit shelves until May 5, but already the Republican Rand Paul has called its findings “big news” that will “shock people” and make voters “question” the candidacy of Hillary Rodham Clinton. “Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich,” by Peter Schweizer — a 186-page investigation of donations made to the Clinton Foundation by foreign entities — is proving the most anticipated and feared book of a presidential cycle still in its infancy. The book, a copy of which was obtained by The New York Times, asserts that foreign entities

Rubio: ‘People are born gay

Washington - Sen. Marco Rubio believes gays and lesbians are born that way– but they don’t have a fundamental right to marry. Marriage should be between one man and one woman, but states that disagree should be allowed to make their own rules, Rubio said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” Sunday. “It’s not that I’m against gay marriage,” said Rubio (R-Fla.) “I believe the definition of the institution of marriage should be between one man and one woman. States have always regulated marriage. And if a state wants to have a different definition, you should petition the state legislature and have a political debate.”

The chief spokesman for the presidential campaign of Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said in an on-record interview with Breitbart News that the senator, if elected president, would not require a secured border before he gives legislative and permanent amnesty to recipients of President Barack Obama’s first executive amnesty, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. “No,” Alex Conant said when asked if the border would need to be secured before a President Rubio’s legislative amnesty for recipients of Obama’s 2012 DACA would replace that executive amnesty. Rubio intends to, if elected to the White House—as he laid out in

A New York Times story on a new book detailing allegations of improprieties at the Clinton Foundation contained this paragraph: But “Clinton Cash” is potentially more unsettling, both because of its focused reporting and because major news organizations including The Times, The Washington Post and Fox News have exclusive agreements with the author to pursue the story lines found in the book. Outrage! screamed the Clinton machine. "The conservative author Peter Schweizer has a major credibility problem, though you wouldn´t know it, because this anti-Clinton manifesto is being peddled by some in the media who have
