Trump Has Succeeded in
Convincing Conservatives to

Since he jumped self-confidently into the political limelight, Donald Trump has been quite the upside-down man. Customarily, primary seasons permit each party’s voters to indulge in a rational process of elimination: First, they discover which candidate most closely agrees with them on policy, and then they ask themselves whether that person is capable of representing their ideas in public. This time around, however, this process has been disastrously inverted, a solid portion of the Republican party’s balloters having decided first who they want to speak on their behalf, and then, as if t’were a mere afterthought, wondered what he might

Plots ´Trump Takedown´

CNN is on the case. (And yes, full disclosure, I am now a CNN commentator.) As discussed on John King’s Inside Politics, and seen here on the CNN website, the main headline reads: GOP establishment plans Trump takedown The sub-head reads: An anti-Trump ad deluge after Labor Day? And the story says: It’s no secret the Republican establishment is unnerved by Donald Trump and his lead in national and key state polls. And now, after weeks of assuming his support would be fleeting, there is a debate about how to take aim at Trump -- and just who should finance such an effort.

In a speech in Anchorage, Alaska, on Monday President Barack Obama warned that if nations do not act to stop climate change "we will condemn our children to a planet beyond their capacity to repair." "Climate change is no longer some far-off problem," Obama said." It is happening here. It is happening now. Climate change is already disrupting our agriculture and ecosystems, our water and food supplies, our energy, our infrastructure, human health, human safety--now. Today." “If we were to abandon our course of action, if we stop trying to build a clean-energy economy and reduce carbon pollution, if we do nothing

A majority of Republican voters, 54 percent, think that President Obama is a Muslim, according to a new survey from the left-leaning Public Policy Polling (PPP). Asked whether they thought Obama is a Christian or Muslim or if they were unsure, 32 percent said they were unsure. Fourteen percent said he was a Christian. Many right-leaning voters have been deeply skeptical about Obama´s faith since before he became president. The topic arose again prominently in 2012, when Obama faced former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, a devout Mormon, in the general election. Obama rarely invokes his own faith in speeches and

On Deportation of Illegals

Immigration: When Donald Trump proposed mandatory deportation of illegal aliens, pundits and politicians on both sides of the political aisle were appalled. But on this issue it looks like Trump has the public on his side. The fire from the right was almost as fierce as that from the left. "It´s not conservative and it´s not realistic and it does not embrace American values," said Jeb Bush. Sen. Lindsey Graham called it "absolute gibberish." Conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer called the idea "crackpot" and "morally obscene." But the prize for overheated rhetoric goes to Hillary Clinton, who said Trump wants to "literally pull people out

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) says that defunding Planned Parenthood will have to wait for a new commander in chief in 2017. “The president’s made it very clear he’s not going to sign any bill that includes defunding of Planned Parenthood, so that’s another issue that awaits a new president, hopefully with a different point of view about Planned Parenthood,” McConnell said Monday on the Kentucky station WYMT’s “Issues and Answers.” Defunding Planned Parenthood has become a leading cause among some Republicans in the wake of controversial undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood officials discussing the price of fetal tissue for medical

Mitt Romney is disappointed by the Republican establishment’s inability to take out Donald Trump–which may pull him into a more active role in the 2016 presidential primary, reports Gabriel Sherman. From New York Magazine: As Donald Trump continues to dominate the Republican presidential race, frustration and panic have become high enough to make some inside the party Establishment pine for a candidate they roundly rejected as recently as January: Mitt Romney. Romney himself has become one of Trump’s most vocal detractors inside the party. “He’s someone to whom civility means a lot. The whole Trump thing really bothers him,” a close Romney

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Monday that funding the government is the top challenge facing him when he returns to the Capitol next week. The Kentucky Republican said he would work with the White House to come up with budget levels to keep the government open past Sept. 30, conceding that President Barack Obama won’t sign a measure with a rider defunding Planned Parenthood. “The Senate Democrats have a big enough number to prevent us from doing things. They prevented us from doing any of the bills that appropriate money for the government, thereby forcing a negotiation when we go back

A transgender high school student in Missouri is facing backlash from her peers after requesting to use the girls’ bathrooms and locker room. More than 100 students at Hillsboro High School, about an hour south of St Louis, walked out of class on Monday in protest. “I’m hoping this dies down,” said Lila Perry, the 17-year-old who began identifying as a girl publicly in February. “I don’t want my entire senior year to be like this.” Ms. Perry, who began feeling “more like a girl than a boy” when she was 13, said school officials gave her permission to use the girls’ facilities

President Barack Obama is painting a doomsday scenario for the Arctic and beyond if climate change isn´t dealt with fast: entire nations submerged underwater, cities abandoned and refugees fleeing in droves as conflict breaks out across the globe. It´s a harrowing image of a future that Obama insists is inevitable unless the world follows his and America´s lead by making sweeping cuts to greenhouse gases. Lest his sense of urgency get lost, Obama was to drive the message home on Tuesday by hiking a melting glacier in Alaska. Scroll down for video (Photos) Obama is counting on Alaska´s exquisite but

ST. LOUIS – People are quicker to shoot black targets with a gun than they are to shoot white targets, a new study suggests. University of Illinois researchers Yara Mekawi and Konrad Bresin compiled findings from 42 studies on trigger bias to evaluate if race affects the likelihood of a target being shot, as reported by NPR. “What we found is that it does,” Mekawi tells NPR. “In our study we found two main things: First, people were quicker to shoot black targets with a gun, relative to white targets with a gun. And… people were more trigger-happy when shooting black targets

Gov. John Kasich (R) says his immigration plan includes a wall, a guest worker program, and a pathway to citizenship for the millions of "law-abiding" people who are in the country illegally: "But for those that are law-abiding, a path to legalization is, I think, it can be accomplished, I think that is a sweet spot in terms of what the American people will accept, and I think also something that could pass the Congress of the United States." Fox News´s Greta Van Sustern asked Kasich on Monday, "What is your idea how to address the illegal immigration issue?" "In
