Quotes of the day
8/4/2015 10:41:41 PM  Allahpundit
Donald Trump (24 percent) leads a fractured Republican field in the race for the GOP nomination in the latest national CBS News Poll. Behind him are Jeb Bush (13 percent) and Scott Walker (10 percent). Trump leads among a wide array of Republican primary

Obama to head out on vacation as planned, not bother wooing Dems on Iran deal
8/4/2015 10:11:21 PM  Mary Katharine Ham
He knows they’ll give it up no matter how little respect he shows them, I suppose. Still, this is yet another instance where it strikes me we’re told again and again how this is a top-tip-toppiest of priorities for the president and he would

Video: Visitors leaving National Archives struggle with the First Amendment
8/4/2015 9:21:31 PM  Matt Vespa
The sun is shining. It's a beautiful day to visit the National Archives, until MRCTV's Dan Joseph jumps out of the bushes to ambush unsuspecting visitors leaving the building about their First Amendment rights: Congress shall make no law respecting an

Bidenmania hides a deeper problem: the Democratic bench
8/4/2015 8:41:10 PM  Ed Morrissey
August has become The Joe Biden Season — at least in the media. With Hillary Clinton faltering, news outlets have begun ramping up their coverage of the Vice President as a suddenly rational alternative to the coronation everyone has expected from

Liberal defenders of the poor still fascinated with Scott Walker's credit card debt
8/4/2015 8:01:02 PM  Jazz Shaw
I suppose Scott Walker is still polling a little too well for the comfort level of liberal commentators. If that weren’t the case, one wonders if they would still be so obsessed with the financial situation of one of the least wealthy candidates

Here we go: Senate Dems falling into line to support Obama's disastrous Iran deal
8/4/2015 7:21:07 PM  Allahpundit
Honestly, I’d much prefer a pure party-line vote in which the GOP’s bid to block the deal goes down in flames rather than some excruciating Senate kabuki where they almost — but not quite — get enough Democratic votes to reach a

Spoiler alert: Jeb Bush's campaign apparatus is PACked with cash
8/4/2015 6:41:55 PM  Matt Vespa
Last Friday, political action committees (PACs) had to file their mid-year reports, and Jeb Bush's Right to Rise PAC is doing quite well. In all, the Wall Street Journal  reports that the super PACs backing 17 presidential candidates for 2016 raised more

Breaking: Fox News to announce the 10 participants in Thursday's first GOP debate; Update: Line-up set
8/4/2015 5:58:01 PM  Allahpundit
The big reveal is coming soon on FNC, so tune in. Kos’s election analysts lay it on the line: Top 10 per polls =Trump, Jeb, Walker, Carson, Huck, Cruz, Rubio, Paul, Christie & Kasich. If that's not Fox's debate lineup, the fix is

Important news from Chris Christie: I've used birth control, and not just the rhythm method
8/4/2015 5:21:47 PM  Allahpundit
Ace is right that what Christie allegedly said today about limiting exemptions from antidiscimination laws in gay marriage cases to religious institutions is more important than this silliness, but I don’t want to hammer him for that without a

CNN to director of pro-life Planned Parenthood sting: Your critics say you're violent, you know
8/4/2015 4:41:04 PM  Allahpundit
Via Mediaite, skip to 3:00 for the big smear. So, Mr. Daleiden, when did you stop beating your wife? Actually, that’s giving CNN too much credit. Asking this guy if he beats his wife would at least be a specific charge. All Daleiden gets here from

Kelly Osbourne to Donald Trump: If you kick out all the Latinos, who's going to clean your toilet, huh?
8/4/2015 4:01:00 PM  Allahpundit
I think I speak for all of us when I say, “Who’s Kelly Osbourne?” The best part of this is an offended Rosie Perez apologizing to Osbourne after being reminded that they should focus on the Common Enemy. Perez clarified the point

TEMS Tuesday: Andrew Malcolm, Linda LeFauve, Milo Yiannopoulos
8/4/2015 3:21:24 PM  Ed Morrissey

Yesterday, Democrats voted to force you to fund baby killers
8/4/2015 2:41:48 PM  Dustin Siggins
Since Day One of the new Planned Parenthood scandal, Democrats have gone to the walls to defend the nation’s most prolific killer of human beings. For two examples from just yesterday: only two Senate Democrats voted for a bill that would shift

Federal court strikes down "ag-gag" law, protects undercover journalism
8/4/2015 2:01:49 PM  Ed Morrissey
The ACLU, PETA, and the Animal Legal Defense Fund won a major First Amendment case yesterday — and it should delight pro-life activists. The state of Idaho passed a law forbidding the use of undercover and other secret surveillance for journalistic

Video: Southern California city appoints two "undocumented immigrants" as city officials
8/4/2015 1:21:26 PM  Ed Morrissey
KCAL-9 calls this “a landmark move,” but Huntington Park residents considered it more of a political stunt. A city council meeting turned into a battle of words last night in the Los Angeles-area community, the only city in the state to

Tables turned: Trump turns cell phone number exposed by Gawker into a campaign ad
8/4/2015 12:41:53 PM  Allahpundit
Remember when he trolled Lindsey Graham by giving out Graham’s private cell phone number on live TV? The new kinder, gentler Gawker (20 percent nicer!) trolled him back yesterday by publishing Trump’s own cell number on their site. Game, set,

Reminder: Letter to LA Health Dept from Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast denied allegations corroborated in video; Update: Abbott promises to "aggressively investigate"
8/4/2015 12:01:40 PM  Ed Morrissey
When the Center for Medical Progress first began releasing videos of its undercover investigations into Planned Parenthood, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal ordered an investigation into its practices in the state. After a query to the regional Planned

Sure looks like Rick Perry's going to miss the cut-off for the first debate
8/4/2015 11:21:56 AM  Allahpundit
Today’s the day Fox News announces the finalists for Thursday’s main event. Until Kasich got in, Perry was just inside the bubble. Now he’s outside, and as Harry Enten notes, not even rounding up or down to the next percentage point
