GOP’s Platoon of Accomplished Governors Falls Flat With Voters

By Stephen Moore
steve.mooreThe Iowa caucuses may have only muddied the waters in the race for the White House, but they did almost definitively decide one thing: The next president will not be a governor. That’s an amazing revelation because, just one year ago, the smart money was betting that the next president would be a Republican governor.

The governors were supposed to be the GOP’s talent pool. Continue Reading.

Republicans Debate: Should Women Be Drafted?

By Phyllis Schlafly

PHYLLIS SCHLAFLY ReportToward the end of the eighth Republican presidential debate, the moderators introduced a new subject which has been absent from stump speeches and ignored in the seven previous debates.  ABC’s Martha Raddatz, who covered the war in Iraq, asked the candidates whether young women should be required to sign up for Selective Service if the military draft is reinstated, just as young men are required to do.

Senator Marco Rubio, whose teenage daughters were seated in the first row, was called on first.  “I have no problem whatsoever with people of either gender serving in combat,” Rubio began.  “I do believe that Selective Service should be opened up for both men and women in case a draft is ever instituted.” Continue Reading.

You Don’t Know What Obama Said at the Mosque

By Dennis Prager

dennis-prager2If you seek to understand Barack Obama and his views, the best place to go is his speeches. But you have to read them in their entirety, not rely on hearing them or on the media’s summary of them. When you do, you realize how often what Obama says is morally and intellectually confused and even untrue.

The most recent example was his speech last week at a mosque in Baltimore. In addition to reassuring Muslim Americans that they are as American as Americans of every other faith — – a point that any president, Republican or Democrat, would and should make – President Obama spoke a lot of nonsense, some of it dangerous. Continue Reading.

Condom-Nation Hits Middle Schools

By Debra J. Saunders

debra-saundersThe San Francisco Unified School District’s board is poised to expand its Condom Availability Program for high school students into middle schools. The school district no longer offers Algebra I as an eighth-grade course — Algebra I has been folded into a two-year, eighth-grade and ninth-grade class that is supposed to be more comprehensive. But the board is ready to bring a high school program to middle school by handing out condoms to sixth-graders.

What could possibly go wrong? Continue Reading.

Heroin: Blame It On America

By Ann Coulter

ann-coulter3Any politician who claims to care about the drug overdose deaths sweeping the nation, but does not demand that we build a wall, deport illegal aliens and end the anchor baby scam, is a liar.

In 2014, more people died from drug overdoses than any year in U.S. history: 47,055. That’s more than die in car accidents — and it’s not even close. Continue Reading.

Ben Carson: Now He’s a Politician

By Katie Kieffer

katie-kiefferPolitics is a full-contact sport, but it’s not OK to hit below the belt. Ben Carson, Donald Trump and Marco Rubio spent last week blaming frontrunner Sen. Ted Cruz for a problem that originated from Team Carson’s own disorganization—even after media records and Iowa exit poll data cleared Cruz. Before you vote in your primary, you deserve the truth.

“You don’t have to be a politician to tell the truth,” Carson quipped in a recent debate. No, you don’t. So let’s start telling the truth. Unless you’re now a politician. Continue Reading.

The Establishment Is Dead

By Ben Shapiro

ben-shapiroIn Monday’s Iowa caucus, Senator Ted Cruz, R-Texas, the man most hated by the Republican establishment, came from behind to nab front-runner Donald Trump. Senator Marco Rubio, R-Fla., the supposed establishment favorite, came in just a point behind Trump. According to conventional wisdom, this should set up a battle royal among anti-establishment Cruz, anti-establishment Trump and establishment Rubio. If Rubio emerges victorious, the pundits explain, the establishment will have lived to fight another day, and put those rowdy conservative grass-roots anti-establishment types in their place. Continue Reading.

Republican Debate Shows Where Comprehensive Immigration Is Headed: Nowhere

By Michael Barone

Michael-Barone1213Donald Trump was absent from Fox News’ Republican debate Thursday night, presiding at his own event seven minutes’ drive away featuring cameo appearances by the two previous Iowa Republican caucus winners exiled now to the undercard debate, Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum.

Random Thoughts

By Thomas Sowell

thomas-sowellRandom thoughts on the passing scene:

Will this November’s presidential election come down to a choice between a felon and a pied piper?

People who call Barack Obama a lame duck president seem not to have noticed that he is exercising more power than ever, and has turned the Republican Congress into a lame duck branch of government. Continue Reading.
