Quotes of the day
8/25/2015 10:41:01 PM  Allahpundit
Chaos is Donald Trump’s best friend in his 2016 presidential bid. The more of it, the better… At its most basic, Trump’s 2016 message is this: Everything is broken.  None of the people in charge know how to fix it.  And no one will tell

Outrage of the day: People might dress up as Caitlyn Jenner for Halloween
8/25/2015 10:01:47 PM  Mary Katharine Ham
It’s true. In a country of 350 million people, some of them might dare dress up as one of the most talked-about cultural figures of the entire year with the easiest-to-execute signature outfit, and some of them might not do it with the intention of

Birth tourism from China to the U.S. actually is a problem
8/25/2015 9:21:35 PM  Taylor Millard
Jeb Bush is getting some heat for a comment he made in South Texas where he said his use of the term "anchor babies" didn’t involve Central Americans, but Asians. He’s actually right (and this is one of the few times I’ll write this).

Bad news: A Hillary-Biden primary fight will get ugly fast
8/25/2015 8:41:18 PM  Ed Morrissey
Stop snickering. The prospects of an internecine fight between Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden should have progressives worried, especially with Bernie Sanders still rising in the polls. Michael Tomasky rightly frets that a Biden entry while Hillary still

Oof: Chairman of Rick Perry's Iowa campaign quits — and joins Team Trump
8/25/2015 8:01:56 PM  Allahpundit
At this rate, it’s hard to believe he won’t be the first mid-major candidate out of the race. His fundraising has been so poor, thanks in part to Ted Cruz soaking up lots of Texas money, that Perry had to temporarily stop paying his staff two

"Go back to Univision": Trump kicks Jorge Ramos out of presser for asking questions without being called on
8/25/2015 7:39:43 PM  Allahpundit
Alternate headline: “Trump rises another 10 points in Republican polls.” When reporters first started huffing about this on Twitter, it sounded as though Trump had booted this guy out of the room for doing nothing more than asking him a

Lindsey Graham to Trump: I'll beat your brains out in South Carolina
8/25/2015 7:21:19 PM  Allahpundit
I get that he needs to show a little bravado about a state that’s elected him to the Senate three times but this is a weird boast to make when you realize that South Carolina is Trump’s strongest state so far among the early big three. He

Only you can put an end to cowbells
8/25/2015 6:41:24 PM  Jazz Shaw
As if things weren’t bad enough in Europe, now the cows are being subjugated. Or at least that’s the opinion of the German Animal Protection Federation, which is apparently a thing there. They have a beef with the farmers in the area (sorry)

GOP's new idea to stop Trump: Make candidates pledge to support the nominee in order to qualify for the ballot
8/25/2015 6:01:53 PM  Allahpundit
Dumb. You think Trump gives a crap about a pledge? He’d take the pledge, renounce it later, then laugh at what losers these Republican leaders are for ever believing that he’d keep his promise. And his fans would cheer him on. “He

Video: Obama EO required Hillary to follow classification of originating agencies
8/25/2015 5:21:41 PM  Ed Morrissey
Hillary Clinton claimed in her most recent press conference that the controversy over classified material in her e-mail is nothing more than a dispute among government agencies. “What you’re seeing now is a disagreement between

Kiss of death for Hillary? Obama reportedly gives Biden his blessing to run for president
8/25/2015 4:41:03 PM  Allahpundit
A leftover from last night that shouldn’t go unremarked upon. If it seems weird to you that Biden, the sitting VP and a guy who began serving in the Senate when Barack Obama was all of 11 years old, would need The One’s “blessing”

Surpise: EU carbon credit scheme was used to generate cash with no carbon reductions
8/25/2015 4:01:52 PM  Jazz Shaw
The European carbon credit program, developed in conjunction with the United Nations, is working out just fabulously. Well… it’s at least working out fabulously for a few people. Similar to programs being developed here in the United States

Tuesday TEMS: Andrew Malcolm, Kristina Ribali, Mickey White
8/25/2015 3:21:22 PM  Ed Morrissey
Today on The Ed Morrissey Show (4 pm ET), we have another great lineup for the news of the day! Andrew Malcolm joins us for Tuesdays with Andrew! The Prince of Twitter and I will discuss all of the hot political stories of the day. Kristina Ribali of

Ferguson judge solves nation's racial problems by vacating all arrest warrants from before 2015
8/25/2015 2:41:31 PM  Jazz Shaw
It wouldn’t be Tuesday without the next installment in our ongoing, 26,741 part series, What Could Possibly Go Wrong? In this week’s episode we find a newly installed municipal judge in riot torn Ferguson, Missouri, who has come up with a

Illinois Democrats in a civil war over race to challenge Mark Kirk
8/25/2015 2:01:32 PM  Jazz Shaw
scha·den·freu·de – ˈSHädənˌfroidə/ : noun: Schadenfreude; pleasure derived by someone from another person’s misfortune. As we’ve discussed in the past here, Senator Mark Kirk (R – Illinois) has a battle on his hands if he wants to

Obama: Opponents of the Iran deal are "the crazies," you know; Update: Opponents in general?
8/25/2015 1:21:47 PM  Ed Morrissey
Barack Obama’s sales pitch for his deal on Iran has fallen flat, and he isn’t terribly happy about it. In a pattern that has become more pronounced over the last few years, the President has reacted to the widespread and sustained criticism

Fox News staffers warn Trump to back off of Megyn Kelly after feud reignites; Update: "Unacceptable," "disturbing," says Ailes; Update: Hannity joins in; Update: Trump responds to Ailes
8/25/2015 12:42:10 PM  Allahpundit
Just flagging this so that we have an easy point of chronological reference for The Day Fox’s Trump Coverage Changed. The truce is over. I liked The Kelly File much better without @megynkelly. Perhaps she could take another eleven day unscheduled

IRS: Lois Lerner had another private e-mail account used for official business … as "Toby Miles"
8/25/2015 12:01:38 PM  Ed Morrissey
It’s amazing how these supposedly “old news” investigations keep turning up new information, no? More than three years after the exposure of IRS political targeting of administration critics, an attorney for the agency admitted in a new

Oh my: Trump 35, Kasich 11, Fiorina 10 in New Hampshire — with strength head-to-head, Update: Leads by 15 in South Carolina too
8/25/2015 11:21:12 AM  Allahpundit
If you don’t like Trump, console yourself with the fact that no other poll of New Hampshire has showed him this far ahead. However, a Gravis poll of the state taken earlier this month had similar numbers — Trump 32, Kasich 15 — so
