President Barack Obama used his weekly address on Saturday to put the reality of climate change in particularly stark terms. “Today, there’s no greater threat to our planet than climate change,” Obama said. “Climate change can no longer be denied, or ignored.” “This winter was cold in parts of our country, as some folks in Congress… Continue reading →
Sen. Marco Rubio polished off his first week as a 2016 candidate Sunday by saying Iran could face war unless it abandons all hope of developing a nuclear bomb, offering a dose of tough talk days after congressional Democrats struck a deal with Republicans to give Congress a say over an emerging deal between the Islamic… Continue reading →
It’s no deep dark secret that Scott Walker will pander to any special interest group that might support him, including the right to life groups. Hence, Walker will do whatever he can do – whether or not it’s legal or ethical – to prevent women from getting basic health care and to have the right to… Continue reading →
The First In The Nation Summit in Nashua, N.H. was a chance for Republican hopefuls to put themselves out there and prove to their party who is most electable. Contrary to what will work in a general election, these Republicans must also satisfy the fringe element that needs to be placated. New Hampshire is the first… Continue reading →
This is exactly the typical behavior of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, whenever anyone challenges him on anything he tries to bully, and talk over them, and is not really interested in hearing their point of view whatsoever. All he wants to do is put his vision of the ‘truth’ out there and ignore the arguments of others ‘This Guy is a loud mouth bully jackass that needs to go away and disappear from public view forever!
It’s April 15, and as I remind my conservative friends, it is a privilege to pay taxes in this country to support our republic and the American way of life even though there’s clearly waste and fraud in government. It depends on a engaged citizenry to weed out fraud and misused tax dollars wherever possible. And even though, what some would consider waste, others consider a solid investment (public education is a great example).Continue reading →
If Marco Rubio becomes the first Latino president, it won’t be because of the Latino vote. The Republican senator from Florida alienated many Latinos when he abandoned immigration reform in 2013, and the ones still in his corner don’t make up enough of the electorate to make a difference. Coupled with his stances against President Barack… Continue reading →
Well, he did say “almost” so there’s some wiggle room. Sen. Brown told Alan why he agreed with the GOP Senators sending the letter to Iran, how he would have done better against Sen. Elizabeth Warren if he was supported by more conservatives, and who he sees becoming the GOP nominee for President in 2016, which… Continue reading →
WASHINGTON — In is first national television appearance since he was indicted on corruption charges, U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez said Sunday he will push ahead with legislation requiring congressional review of any nuclear deal with Iran despite opposition from President Obama. “I’m not backing off,” Menendez (D-N.J.) said on “Fox News Sunday.” “We have gone from… Continue reading →
Political analyst Doug Schoen advised Bill Clinton and has good advice for Hillary about how to appeal to moderates and independents without losing the liberal base. To do so, she should focus on a few core issues: As a nod to the progressive left, Clinton should ferociously champion raising the minimum wage and reining in the… Continue reading →
It sure doesn’t seem that Rand Paul took too kindly to the fact that Savannah Guthrie was calling him out on some of his past stances that he’s taken over the years on some of the issues. Instead of lashing out at reporters during interviews, I think he better learn how to grow a thicker layer of skin if he hopes to have any chance to show the voters that he’s ready to be considered a serious contender for the 2016 GOP nomination.
Because without a doubt as the months pass along, he’s sure to find that the line of questioning on issues like Iran, and Russia and a whole host of other topics is only going to get a lot tougher. .
TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – Republican legislators in Kansas are moving to shift city and local school board elections to the fall of even-numbered years, saying the change will boost voter turnout. A plan for scrapping the tradition of holding local elections on the first Tuesday in April of odd-numbered years emerged from negotiations between the House… Continue reading →
Democrats and organized labor are gearing up for another minimum wage fight in South Dakota. The state’s voters approved an increase in the minimum wage from $7.25 to $8.50 an hour by a 55-45 margin just last fall. But in the current legislative session, Republicans passed an exemption to the law, which sets a separate minimum… Continue reading →
Let’s hope it stays this way: The U.S. Supreme Court turned away an appeal by North Carolina, declining for now to approve Republican-backed voting restrictions that may shape the 2016 election. North Carolina asked the nation’s highest court to uphold provisions that eliminate same-day voter registration and out-of-precinct voting. The Supreme Court previously let those provisions… Continue reading →
WASHINGTON — Rand Paul’s campaign slogan is “Defeat the Washington machine.” The Kentucky senator is running as an outsider, but even in this legacy-laden field, he may be the ultimate insider. It’s been less than three years — not even one full presidential election cycle — since former Rep. Ron Paul gave up his last presidential… Continue reading →
