JEB! IS TOAST!

Posted: February 20, 2016 at 7:18 pm   /   Elections, Entertainment, Features, Politics, Top Stories

Hallelujah! Pats on the back are due all around – social media is a very powerful medium, and the American public have effectively shut down the Establishment’s first choice in just three primaries.

Posted: February 17, 2016 at 6:53 am   /   Politics

(Scott Johnson) The big political news this morning comes via Drudge in the new Quinnipiac poll that is posted here. Quinnipiac notes that it conducted its survey over the period February 10-15.

Posted: February 16, 2016 at 10:08 pm   /   Politics

(Paul Mirengoff) Today at his press conference, President Obama was asked about the battle for the Republican presidential nomination. His response could hardly have been more dishonest.
