Great news: China probably can corroborate Hillary's testimony on e-mails
8/11/2015 10:01:59 AM  Ed Morrissey
Yesterday, Hillary Clinton submitted a sworn declaration under penalty of perjury in a case involving Judicial Watch and their FOIA request to the State Department. At issue was whether the former Secretary of State had provided all of the work product

Has Obama bailed out on the pan-Pacific trade deal?
8/11/2015 9:21:11 AM  Jazz Shaw
Wouldn’t you just know it? One of the rare times when the GOP actually found common ground with Barack Obama and fought successfully against congressional Democrats may turn out to be a dud. The pan-Pacific trade negotiations (which have basically

Hillary: Let's spend $350 billion to make college … affordable?
8/11/2015 8:41:46 AM  Ed Morrissey
Perhaps Hillary Clinton has a different definition of “affordable” than most of us. A plan that spends $350 billion can be defined as many things, but affordable is not on that list. Still, Hillary’s plan raises the stakes among a

New Reuters poll confirms Trump is doomed. Only in 1st place, doubling nearest rival
8/11/2015 8:01:42 AM  Jazz Shaw
I don’t put much stock in online surveys, which is why I wasn’t exactly setting my hair on fire over samples such as that Survey Monkey poll which came out within 48 hours of the debate showing The Donald standing strong after his

Quotes of the day
8/10/2015 10:01:04 PM  Allahpundit
Bobby Jindal has a new campaign strategy, and he's being pretty upfront about it. "I realize that the best way to make news is to mention Donald Trump," the Louisiana governor and second-tier GOP presidential candidate says in a new version of his stump

Of course: Gov't recommendations on breakfast were based on basically nothing, probably wrong
8/10/2015 9:21:42 PM  Mary Katharine Ham
And, here we have another example of the federal government making recommendations on next to no scientific evidence, built mostly on a foundation of speculation and a deep desire to tell people what to do, that ends up probably having hurt the people

"True Detective" grumble thread: Fathers and sons
8/10/2015 8:41:36 PM  Allahpundit
Eight and a half hours later, what was the point? This bit from The Atlantic’s Sophie Gilbert does seem to hit on the core theme Pizzolatto and crew were going for: The underlying fear of the season—that sons will grow up and murder their

West Point historian: Of course the Civil War was about slavery
8/10/2015 8:01:25 PM  Ed Morrissey
Things seem awfully quiet these days, so perhaps it’s time for a nice academic discussion about a topic that will generate little passion on either side. Naaaaaah. Dennis Prager’s Prager University has a new lesson out today that follows up

Video: White House staffer on leave after shooting at boyfriend
8/10/2015 7:21:41 PM  Ed Morrissey
Barvetta Singletary may have more problems than unpaid leave from her job. Earlier today, NBC’s Washington affiliate reported that Singletary, a White House aide since last year who spent the previous 15 years working for Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC),

Hillary on Trump and Megyn Kelly: He's outrageous — but what Marco Rubio said about abortion is just as troubling; Update: Rubio fires back
8/10/2015 6:41:24 PM  Allahpundit
Two clips via Mediate, one of which has Hillary admitting that she attended Trump’s wedding in Florida because she thought it’d be “fun” since he was an entertainer at the time, not a candidate for office. Interesting how our

Sanders unveils hastily drafted "racial inequality" platform
8/10/2015 6:01:57 PM  Jazz Shaw
Yesterday we talked about the rather embarrassing fact that Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders was once again chased off of his own stage by the Black Lives Matter crew and how he is, at this point, effectively being held hostage by them. At the time I

Brutal new ad featuring wounded vet: Why are we making nuclear deals with a country that tried to kill me?
8/10/2015 5:21:14 PM  Allahpundit
The first in what’s bound to be an awfully tough series targeting red-state Democrats like Jon Tester and Joe Manchin. They’re the obvious place to start for the GOP in finding 67 votes in the Senate to block Obama’s Iran deal, but it

Are liberal city centers dying off politically?
8/10/2015 4:41:25 PM  Jazz Shaw
It’s a given in American politics that urban centers are essentially Democrat strongholds. There is no point in Republicans or conservatives competing there because you’re simply not going to gain any votes or find any agreement on key policy

Poll: 68% want a change of direction from Obama after next election
8/10/2015 4:01:49 PM  Ed Morrissey
So much for continuity. Recently, Barack Obama bragged that he could win a third term in office if the Constitution didn’t prohibit it, but a new Monmouth poll shows that Americans overwhelmingly want a change of direction and approach. Only 27%

Morning Consult poll: Trump's lead grows after GOP debate to 32 percent, now ahead by more than 20 points
8/10/2015 3:21:38 PM  Allahpundit
A Trumptastic start to the most interesting week of presidential polling this year so far, which should answer the question, “How much does a debate watched by 24 million people really matter?” If you’re a Trump-hater, good news: This

Just like old times: SecDef defying Obama on Gitmo releases?
8/10/2015 2:41:46 PM  Ed Morrissey
The Pentagon insists that Ashton Carter supports Barack Obama’s goal to close the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay. Earlier today, the Defense Department’s spokesman announced that the military had a plan at the ready for that purpose,

I'm with the bear. And the bull. And the shark…
8/10/2015 2:01:09 PM  Jazz Shaw
In the non-political world there was a sad story this weekend out in Yellowstone National Park. A man who was, by all accounts, an experienced hiker and outdoorsman was killed and eaten by a grizzly bear. Or so the authorities think, anyway. The victim,

Trump, Sanders and the orphans of democracy
8/10/2015 1:21:51 PM  Jazz Shaw
You probably couldn’t count on on both hands and both feet the number of mainstream media stories coming out every fifteen minutes trying to explain why Donald Trump stubbornly remains at the top of the polls in the GOP primary and, to a lesser

Peace in our time: Fox News reportedly in talks with Trump for interview in primetime tonight; Update: Tomorrow morning?
8/10/2015 12:42:06 PM  Allahpundit
Relax, relax. It’s “highly unlikely” that Megyn Kelly will be doing the interview, per CNN’s sources. I’ll leave it to you to speculate which side is insisting that she not be involved, knowing that a Trump/Kelly interview

Exclusive*: #RSG15 interview with Jeb Bush
8/10/2015 12:01:59 PM  Ed Morrissey
Immediately after his speech at the Red State Gathering on Saturday, one of four Republican presidential candidates to address the activists in Atlanta, former Governor Jeb Bush met with me for an exclusive one-on-one interview. Bush had been given a

Obama on nuke deal: I stand by my comparison of Republicans to Iranian hardliners
8/10/2015 11:21:26 AM  Allahpundit
As a young Barack Obama once said at the 2004 Democratic convention: There are no “blue states” and “red states,” there are only blue states and states that make “common cause” with anti-American fanatics. The White
