It´s Time for Carson
to Look in the Mirror

In an effort to draw attention to his Kim Kardashian-style vanity campaign, Ben Carson took his contrived outrage mongering against Cruz to a new level yesterday. During one of his numerous media appearances over the past three days, which is more actual campaigning than he’s done for the past few months while he took a hiatus to sell books, Carson compared Cruz’s behavior in Iowa to Hillary following the Benghazi tragedy. Enough is enough. If Carson wants to talk about the depths of deception and dishonesty he should “start looking at the man in the mirror.” I was born and bred in Baltimore

Facebook: all in favor of freedom of speech! (Except criticism of Islam and amnesty.) The watchdog Gatestone Institute notes: It was only a few weeks ago that Facebook was forced to back down when caught permitting anti-Israel postings, but censoring equivalent anti-Palestinian postings. Now one of the most sinister stories of the past year was hardly even reported. In September, German Chancellor Angela Merkel met Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook at a UN development summit in New York. As they sat down, Chancellor Merkel´s microphone, still on, recorded Merkel asking Zuckerberg what could be done to stop anti-immigration postings being written on Facebook.

Hillary Grows Annoyed Over Questions
About Wall Street Speech Transcripts [Video]

Hillary Clinton grew perturbed on Friday when asked in an interview if she will release transcripts from speeches she gave in private settings to Wall Street patrons. Her campaign communications director Brian Fallon also dodged a question about the speeches, saying that the campaign will have to “see what transcripts exist.” “I said that I would look into that,” a visibly annoyed Clinton told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell on Friday when asked about releasing the transcripts, which was brought up in Thursday night’s debate by MSNBC co-moderator Chuck Todd. Clinton said during the prime time debate that she would “look into”

Hillary Clinton stepped out to make a statement claiming victory in the Iowa caucuses on Monday night. It wasn’t clear that she had won and it still isn’t, but appearances had to be maintained. Clinton gave a six-minute speech (video below) that almost captures her full awfulness. She lies with pathological abandon. She is a gold-plated phony. She has achieved plutocratic wealth through public service while holding herself out as a champion of the common man. She struggles to impersonate an authentic human being. Delivering remarks in a tone of voice that would make fingernails scraping against a blackboard sound attractive, she

Bernie Sanders could be the first

Bernie Sanders is poised to make history. Victory next week in New Hampshire, where he enjoys a significant lead in the polls, would break a barrier as old as the republic: The Vermont senator would be the first Jewish candidate to win a presidential nominating contest. But even with that path-breaking feat in touching distance, and attention increasingly focused on his surging campaign for the Democratic nomination, the Brooklyn-born politician´s religion received little mention on the national stage until CNN´s Anderson Cooper noted it while moderating a town hall with the Democratic presidential candidates Wednesday night. In part, that´s because

Six people found dead in a brick bungalow in Chicago´s Gage Park neighborhood have been declared homicides, with one woman killed by gunshot and the others by blunt or sharp force, police said. The bodies were found Thursday afternoon, and authorities on Friday were investigating how they were slain. It appears police discovered a grisly scene: The bodies showed signs of trauma and were found in different places throughout the single-family home, interim police Superintendent John Escalante said. One of the dead was a child, probably between 10 and 12 years old. "This is going to be an investigation that´s

The first New Hampshire primary was held on March 14, 1916, and on Tuesday the Granite State will celebrate the 100th anniversary of its nominating contest. The New Hampshire primary has long been the second major testing ground for candidates following the Iowa caucuses. So who has the best track record of predicting presidents? Let’s take a look at the contests since 1976. Republican Party -New Hampshire Republicans may not have a crystal ball, but they hold a slightly better track record than their Democratic counterparts. Since 1976, New Hampshire has given the nod to five candidates who eventually went

LACONIA, N.H. — Seven minutes. Four questions. One plum chance for Marco Rubio to lay into his top competition in the Republican presidential race. But Rubio held his fire. “I like John Kasich,” he told a group of reporters here. He said he will only hit Donald Trump hard “when the time comes.” Chris Christie’s insults earned only a three-second rebuttal. He declined to say whether he expected to finish off Jeb Bush. “I’m not running against any of the other candidates in this race,” Rubio said. “I am running for president.”

Ethan and Joel Coen´s Hail, Caesar! grossed an underwhelming $4.3 million from 2,222 theaters Friday for a projected $11.6 million debut, the lowest nationwide start of the duo´s directing career. The news is even more grim for mash-up Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. The movie may only debut to $5 million after earning $2 million on Friday from 2,931 theaters. That puts it behind the the third new movie daring to open on Super Bowl weekend, Nicholas Sparks´ film adaptation The Choice, which took in $2.6 million from 2,631 theaters Friday for a projected $5.5 million debut.

(Video) A super-PAC supporting Republican presidential hopeful Carly Fiorina on Saturday released a parody ad for the GOP debate, calling host ABC the “Anybody But Carly” network for refusing to include her in the lineup. “Saturday on ABC, the Anybody But Carly network: Tune in as we exclude Carly Fiorina, but include people she beat,” a theatrical narrator created by CARLY for America says in the spoof, accompanied by dramatic music. “On Anybody But Carly, we rig the game.” The 40-second spot points to the Feb. 1 Iowa caucuses, where Fiorina tied GOP presidential rival Jeb Bush in delegates and

The popularity of the name “Hillary” has declined among Americans since 1993, the year that Bill and Hillary Clinton entered the White House. First noted by Gawker, Hillary was the 261st most popular name for a newborn baby girl in the United States in 1993, according to data from the Social Security Administration. The popularity of the name declined sharply the following year, Hillary becoming the 566th most popular baby girl name in 1994. The name’s frequency continued to decline among Americans, becoming the 961st most popular female baby name in 2007. The year following, it ticked up slightly to

Republican Senator Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) 100% is responding to Donald Trump, who has accused Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 97% of not having friends in the U.S. Senate, by coming out and saying he is a friend of Cruz. According to the Washington Examiner: “It makes me mad when Trump says that,” Lee told the Washington Examiner this week. “Ted Cruz is my friend, so if Mr. Trump or anyone else is saying Ted Cruz doesn’t have any friends in the Senate, I can say unequivocally, that is not true. I am his friend and I don’t regard myself as alone

They say the pen is mightier than the sword, but for New Hampshire´s Kriss Blevens, the makeup brush is the most powerful tool of all. The award-winning makeup artist, who has powdered the noses of Barack Obama, Jeb Bush, Mitt Romney and Donald Trump, has worked her magic on the last five presidents and every candidate who has run in New Hampshire´s primary since 1992. Blevens famously transformed Hillary Clinton during the 2008 elections, leading viewers to speculate whether the politician had gone under the knife. With clients from both Republican and Democratic parties, Blevens insists she is bipartisan and

Sen. Marco Rubio’s surprisingly strong bronze-medal finish in Monday’s Iowa caucuses — just one point behind silver medalist Donald Trump — cheered his fans and chilled Democrats. The Florida Republican is the last candidate they want to face next fall. “When Marco Rubio speaks, young women swoon, old women faint and toilets flush themselves,” said Dan Gelber, the Florida House’s Democratic leader while Rubio was its speaker. “Rubio excites audiences that hear him,” a South Carolina Democratic strategist told Salon.com. “He’s an optimistic face on regressive policies, which makes him very dangerous.” In his recent bestseller, “Unlikeable: The Problem with Hillary,” author

Most people in Washington attribute the success of Politico’s marquee morning newsletter, Playbook, to the superhuman work ethic of its main author and Politico’s Chief White House correspondent, Mike Allen. According to several 2010 emails recently obtained by Gawker, however, Allen has employed one unusual productivity trick: letting someone he covers ghostwrite an item for him. Gawker has received the latest round of emails between reporters and Philippe Reines, the longtime Hillary Clinton confidante, former State Department spokesperson, and frequent pen pal of Mike Allen. This month’s batch contains yet another friendly email exchange between Reines and Allen whose contents belie

Next time your boss tries to convince you of the benefits of working from home, spare a thought for how that could contribute to wrecking the planet. More businesses than ever are asking employees to work remotely in a bid to cut rental costs for office space and take advantage of the growth of super-fast broadband, teleconferencing and smart phones. But working from your kitchen can actually increase the carbon dioxide emissions that cause global warming, since those who stay home usually turn up the thermostat.

Donald Trump gave an interview this week all of his potential supporters should watch. In his own words, Trump lays bare the very reasons why he would be such a disastrous choice for president. The interview with Anderson Cooper on Thursday, which can be seen here, took place in New Hampshire where Trump is campaigning for the upcoming Republican primary in New Hampshire, and the setting included a small group of ordinary New Hampshire voters. The topic turns to President Obama’s recent nuclear agreement with Iran. Trump unwittingly displays for all to see that he simply does not understand the most basic

Dear Hillary: I hope by the time you receive this letter, you find yourself well and in good spirits amidst your grueling presidential campaign.

I t doesn’t take many mental contortions to figure out whom Mitt Romney would support in a three-way race between Donald Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz, and Sen. Marco Rubio. Obviously he would support none of them, because Romney is waiting for the three to end up in a deadlocked convention from which Romney emerges the consensus nominee. Just kidding, sort of. The dude wants to endorse Rubio, and it’s only a matter of time. How about this weekend? Romney convincingly won the New Hampshire primary in 2012 and owns a proper gentleman’s lakeside estate in Wolfeboro. He remains popular in the state

UP to 70,000 Syrians are flocking to the border with Turkey to flee the civil war which has seen Aleppo bombed to obliteration. Turkey has sealed off its border with Syria for two days after intense bombing has spread into the countryside and whittled away the rebel-held city. Already 20,000 Syrians are at the Bab al-Salam border crossing and another 50,000 are on their way, an official with the Turkish disaster agency AFAD. It follows 10,000 people rushing to each northern city Azaz and Afrin, just north of Aleppo and closer to the Turkish border. Aid agencies in southern Turkey

Apparently Iowa Republicans don´t want to make America great again. And that´s just fine with the GOP elite, uttering a Monty Burnsian "excellent" over the prospect of Marco Rubio as the party´s presidential nominee. The Florida senator is attracting new attention from donors and landing key endorsements in the wake of his third-place caucus finish. A strong showing in New Hampshire would further separate him from the other candidates in the "establishment" lane — Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, and John Kasich. But given Rubio´s support from what rival Ted Cruz might derisively call the "Washington Cartel," would he be a same-old,

SALEM, N.H. — One of the most respected surveys of New Hampshire voters confirmed on Thursday that Senator Marco Rubio of Florida has quickly become the candidate to beat in the state’s primary on Tuesday, a sudden rise that has reordered the Republican primary race and unnerved his rivals. The poll by the University of New Hampshire for CNN and WMUR showed that Mr. Rubio had received a seven-point bounce here after his unexpectedly strong third-place showing in the Iowa caucuses on Monday, placing him in second place with 18 percent support. Donald J. Trump remained in first at 29 percent, unchanged

Here is the first reality of American identity politics: White progressives run the entire enterprise. Here is the second reality: That means sexual liberty trumps all, including racial equality. How else to explain the mainstream media’s gigantic yawn at the first Latino man in American history to win a major-party presidential caucus? Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio combined for 51 percent of the vote from a lily-white, conservative Iowa electorate, and no one seemed to mention race at all. Are we suddenly bored by “firsts” now? Or is there something wrong with Cruz and Rubio — something that has nothing
