8/12/2015 10:01:59 AM  Jazz Shaw
It’s still over a month until the next GOP debate, hosted by CNN and the Reagan Library and moderated by Jake Tapper, but we are getting word that the format may be strangely familiar to viewers of the recent spectacle. The hosts have begun sending

NH voters feeling the Bern — by seven points over Hillary
8/12/2015 9:21:18 AM  Ed Morrissey

Scrubbed server, held hostage for months, to be released
8/12/2015 8:01:39 AM  Jazz Shaw
Allahpundit reported last night that the feds have the emails, but now they apparently have – or will shortly have – the server. Clinton’s team of lawyers wants everyone to know that this is all one big misunderstanding and this move of

Quotes of the day
8/11/2015 10:41:26 PM  Allahpundit

Christie vetoes NJ bill that would allow transgenders to change their birth certificates
8/11/2015 9:21:15 PM  Jazz Shaw
I’m just counting the days until this particular battle shows up at the federal level. (As you’ll see in a moment, I’m not sure if that’s even possible, but if it is, the Justice Department will figure out a way.) Legislators in

Video: We're going to post the "Star Wars" thing you've already seen because it's "Star Wars" and that's just the way it is

To cleanse the palate, there are always a few stragglers among the readership who’ve somehow managed to miss the viral sensation that everyone else saw yesterday but which we haven’t had a chance to blog until now. This one’s for you,

Walker: Why does Trump keep attacking me with debunked 'Democrat talking points'?
8/11/2015 8:01:37 PM  Guy Benson
An interesting observation from Steve Hayes on Donald Trump’s “Fox News truce” interview this morning: Trump launches unprovoked attacks on Walker, Bush — and doesn’t respond to a tough Hillary Clinton attack on him

8/11/2015 6:41:49 PM  Allahpundit
Hillary’s perp walk will be the greatest moment of live TV since the moon landing. The only question: Are we rooting for it to happen before the Democratic convention, for maximum embarrassment, or after? No, no, I kid. Elite members of our

Perry runs out of cash, but can his super-PAC ride to the rescue?
8/11/2015 6:01:53 PM  Ed Morrissey
Welcome to Campaign Finance Reform Nirvana, where presidential bids never die — they just enter limbo while supporters run a PAC. Rick Perry’s official campaign has stopped meeting payroll, in the past a sign of doom for a presidential

8/11/2015 5:21:23 PM  Jazz Shaw
Who’s ready for a good old fashioned diplomatic breakdown with our international neighbors? No.. for once I’m not talking about Mexico. There may be a lawsuit coming our way shortly from our neighbors to the north. TransCanada Corporation

"Little House" actress would like to go to Congress
8/11/2015 4:41:21 PM  Jazz Shaw
Normally when you hear about a celebrity – or simply a buffoon – running for office you expect the story to have come from Minnesota. (Sorry about that, Ed…) But it seems that the infection is spreading across the Midwest and has landed

Report: Roger Ailes offered Trump a special on Megyn Kelly's show to clear the air
8/11/2015 4:01:04 PM  Allahpundit
True or not? On the one hand, this comes from Gabriel Sherman, one of Fox’s most relentless critics in the media, a guy who published an unflattering bio of Ailes last year and who offhandedly refers to Fox’s audience as

Uh oh: Trump down nine points after debate in new Rasmussen national poll
8/11/2015 2:01:50 PM  Allahpundit
I’m not telling you these polls are correct, just like I didn’t tell you yesterday that that bombshell Morning Consult survey showing Trump rising to 32 percent after the debate was correct. We’re tracking all of the polls this week to

Rand Paul's new mission: Destroy Donald Trump
8/11/2015 1:21:07 PM  Allahpundit
Given that this is also Rick Perry’s self-appointed mission and Perry’s allegedly on the verge of running out of cash to pay his staffers, it’s … not obvious to me why Rand wants to try it too. Maybe he thinks the problem with

New Q-poll shows Big Apple voters to be warmongers, or something
8/11/2015 12:41:39 PM  Ed Morrissey
So it’s not just Chuck Schumer who’s a New York City warmonger for daring to question the Most Peaceful Peace Deal Ever That Doesn’t Require Actual Peace. That’ll be bad news to the “aggressive progressives” at

Ohio judges advised that they can't refuse to perform same sex weddings
8/11/2015 12:01:46 PM  Jazz Shaw
I think we all knew there would be more than a few of these cases reverberating around the country following the Supreme Court’s decision on gay marriage, and this time it’s popping up in Ohio. Some municipal judges are either refusing to
