CNN poll: Majority rejects Iran deal, 44/52
7/28/2015 10:01:56 AM  Ed Morrissey
Polling prior to the announcement of a deal with Iran showed that the American public felt conflicted on the issue. A substantial majority wanted a deal in the abstract — but a substantial majority also didn’t think a deal would stop Iran

Poll: more Americans see guns as part of the solution, not the problem
7/28/2015 9:21:52 AM  Jazz Shaw
As with every such tragedy, the recent shooting in a Lafayette, Louisiana theater has brought yet another round of calls for increased gun control measures from liberal politicians. (And, sadly, a few Republicans as well.) Gun rights advocates have had

New CMP-Planned Parenthood video: Interview with former organ harvester

“It’s a pretty sick company,” phlebotomist and former Stem Express “procurement technician” Holly O’Donnell says about her former employer. The latest video from Center for Medical Progress features O’Donnell

The inevitable "Trump raped his wife" story
7/28/2015 8:01:51 AM  Jazz Shaw
The Daily Beast took a predictable swipe at Donald Trump yesterday by generating some “breaking news” which is actually a decades old and long abandoned story from Trump’s high profile divorce from his former wife, Ivana. The

Quotes of the Day

A pile of goop should not have more rights than a human being. Period. — Lucas Neff (@RealLucasNeff) July 27, 2015 *** This is the problem with the abortion position. They're arguing "clump of cells," "pile of goop" while

Courage: Hillary dodges question on Keystone during energy speech
7/27/2015 10:11:58 PM  Mary Katharine Ham
Well, it clearly wasn’t germane. Keystone, energy, what do these have to do with one another? 500 million subsidized solar panels on the other hand… This is an instance where Clinton actually submitted herself to questions from an audience

Super: MSNBC commentator thinks FCC should fine people for "misgendering" Jenner
7/27/2015 9:31:10 PM  Mary Katharine Ham
Violence is the new tolerance. First, it was Ben Shapiro facing physical threats on the set of a live television show as retaliation for his pronouns. Now, a commentator on MSNBC would like to use the power of government to go after anyone who changes

Video: House Oversight wants Koskinen fired … or impeached
7/27/2015 8:41:24 PM  Ed Morrissey
Consider just how frustrating conducting oversight of the IRS must have been over the last two years. The previous leadership conducted politically motivated targeting of the opposition to the administration, and then the replacement leadership has done

So, Obama's really, really good at selling firearms
7/27/2015 8:01:15 PM  Matt Vespa
The fallout from attempted ammo bans for AR-15 rifles to dead on arrival gun control initiatives in Congress, which would do next to nothing to curb future mass shootings (or gun violence), has led to President Barack Obama becoming one of the greatest

Israelis surprisingly unimpressed with "insult" of Pollard release as Iran deal compensation
7/27/2015 7:21:49 PM  Ed Morrissey
Don’t get the Israelis wrong on Jonathan Pollard and his reportedly imminent release. Not only do they eagerly await the opportunity to welcome him as a hero, they remain angry that this homecoming has not yet taken place. That’s why the

North Carolina is about to change the game by moving up their primary
7/27/2015 6:41:38 PM  Jazz Shaw
North Carolina state legislators are getting ready to make a move which could add a significant new wrinkle in the 2016 primary and send some candidates scurrying south in the near future. Traditionally, in the primary race, the Tar Heels don’t go

The cost of Keystone's delay: $175 billion
7/27/2015 6:01:26 PM  Matt Vespa
The Keystone XL pipeline is an issue that Democrats are going to have to deal with sooner rather than later. Hillary Clinton has repeatedly dipped, ducked, dived, and dodged questions about her position on the project to the ire of the environmental

Attention candidates: new national poll shows voters want less ethanol in their fuel
7/27/2015 5:21:50 PM  Jazz Shaw
Here’s a quick question for you… where are most of the 2016 candidates trying to “get it right” in Iowa to score some early points in the primary but definitely getting it very, very wrong in terms of where the rest of the nation

McCarthy: Yeah, we're not taking up that Senate highway bill/Ex-Im reauthorization
7/27/2015 4:41:43 PM  Ed Morrissey
The best laid plans of mice, men, and the Senate GOP often go awry. The upper chamber’s majority leadership enraged conservatives by trying to push through a six-year highway bill that will reauthorize the Export-Import Bank while ignoring demands

Planned Parenthood's federal funding isn't going anywhere
7/27/2015 4:01:17 PM  Dustin Siggins
Sorry to crush your hopes and dreams, my fellow pro-lifers…but Congress ain’t going to defund Planned Parenthood. I know you’re all shocked — the GOP is is overpromising and underdelivering on something important to its base, the

Assad admits he's given up on defending parts of his own country
7/27/2015 3:21:28 PM  Jazz Shaw
We’ve been saying for some time now that Syria wasn’t just a mess… it’s no longer really a country. It is, sad to say, a failed state in nearly every sense of the term and the inmates are currently running the asylum. But if you

Hey, look! Jim Gilmore is getting in the race because it's such a great opportunity
7/27/2015 2:41:37 PM  Jazz Shaw
Twenty GOP candidates or bust, guys! Number seventeen officially enters the race this week to much fanfare and great anticipation. (Okay… okay… but I’m trying to give everyone a chance.) Former Virginia Governor Jim Gilmore is

Mitchell: Experts can find no reason for a private e-mail system except to thwart oversight
7/27/2015 2:01:27 PM  Ed Morrissey
The media seems ready to turn on the Hillary Clinton e-mail scandal, if one uses MSNBC as a gauge. It’s not a surprise to see Joe Scarborough, a center-right host, focusing intently and in detail on the wide range of issues and potential crimes

Politico finally asks the tough question: Is Bernie Sanders a SINO?
7/27/2015 1:21:30 PM  Ed Morrissey
You may ask yourself: What’s a SINO? Why, it’s a Socialist In Name Only, which we can add to the pantheon of -INOs during their hunting seasons, which last 365 days a year. First we had Republicans (RINOs), then conservatives (CINOs),

CNN poll: 64% of Republicans prefer securing border and deportation of illegals over legalization
7/27/2015 12:41:24 PM  Ed Morrissey
This should answer the question of why Donald Trump resonates with the Republican base. Despite having criticized Mitt Romney for being too hardline on immigration in 2012, Trump has until very recently embraced the hardline positions — and those

Black Lives Matter co-founder threatens to "shut down" GOP convention
7/27/2015 12:01:51 PM  Jazz Shaw
Who exactly is running things over at the top secret headquarters of the Black Lives Matter movement, assuming that such even exists? There seems to be some confusion on the messaging. You may recall that when Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse

Scarborough: IG report on emails "just the tip of the iceberg" for Hillary
7/27/2015 11:21:06 AM  Ed Morrissey
Ever since the New York Times’ Thursday-night exposé of the Inspectors General referrals to the Department of Justice and FBI, the Hillary Clinton campaign and its allies have been trying to attack the media that reports on it. A follow-up from the
