Karl Rove’s Advice – Don’t Attack Hillary

Fox News: Republicans warn against 2016 strategy that goes overboard on attacking Clintons’ political past   Former Bush administration adviser Karl Rove on Sunday cautioned Republicans against a 2016 presidential election strategy that focuses too much on the political history of potential Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton. Rove told “Fox News Sunday” he was uncertain whether revisiting Clinton and husband Bill Clinton’s years in the White House would help Republicans win the presidency.  “It may,” said Rove, now a “Fox News” contributor. “But the trouble for Republicans is it’s easier to say what you’re against than what you are for.” Republicans … Continue reading

Obamacare: The Law That Changes Daily

Yesterday: Steve Hayes, Kirsten Powers, and Charles Krauthammer join FNC’s Bret Baier on Special Report to weigh in with their compelling commentary in this discussion of the new Obamacare delay. Proof that even Obama believes that ObamaCare sucks. Boehner and the republicans could make political hay out of this if they actually had the stones to do it.  Time to draft articles of Impeachment if for nothing more than to highlight the lawlessness of Obama.  Of course, none of this would get past Harry Reid’s desk in the Senate but it might get the sorry excuse for a media to … Continue reading

Donations to Roves’s PACs Drop 98% after Attack on Conservatives

From Breitbart: After wasting nearly $325 million during the 2012 election cycle with nothing to show for it and then declaring war on the Tea Party, donations to Karl Rove’s three Crossroads groups decreased by 98% last year. The groups reportedly raised a paltry $6.1 million combined in 2013. Rove runs Crossroads GPS, American Crossroads, and the Conservative Victory Project Super PAC, which was formed this year to wage war against conservatives. Rove’s two groups raised $325 million in 2012 and about $70 million in 2010. As Politico notes, though, “Rove added a third group to the network in 2013, forming the Conservative Victory … Continue reading

Mitt Romney Is the 2016 Republican Front-Runner

This is not an Onion story. From the National Journal: Mitt Romney leads the Republican field among New Hampshire primary voters for 2016. Yes, you read that right. Why not make it a third run for president? That’s something that the former Republican nominee is definitely not thinking about right now. To put it in his own recent words: “Oh, no, no, no. No, no, no, no, no. No, no, no.” But that didn’t stop the Virginia-based bipartisan policy firm Purple Strategies from adding his name to a recent survey for Granite State voters, which shows Romney in the lead … Continue reading

Hillary: Benghazi ‘My Biggest Regret’

From The Hill: Hillary Clinton, on Monday, called the Benghazi terror attack the “biggest regret” of her tenure as Secretary of State, a message she’s expected to emphasize as she ponders a 2016 White House run. “My biggest, you know, regret is what happened in Benghazi,” Clinton said when asked to identify “do-overs”of her time as America’s top diplomat during her keynote appearance before the National Automobile Dealers Association in New Orleans. “It was a terrible tragedy, losing four Americans, two diplomats and now it’s public, so I can say two CIA operatives, losing an ambassador like Chris Stevens, who was one of our very … Continue reading

Rush on Scott Walker’s Budget Surplus

From  IJ Review: While the media obsesses over Justin Bieber’s next public embarrassment, Rush Limbaugh points to what he calls a “earth-shattering” conservative success that the media aren’t going to report. From the Blaze: The state of Wisconsin’s unemployment rate is “rapidly falling” and the government’s budget ended the year with a $912 million surplus, Limbaugh explained. He says the dramatic turnaround is due in large part to the conservative policies of Gov. Scott Walker. What’s even more amazing, he continued, is the fact that Walker is going to “rebate the money in the form of tax cuts to the … Continue reading

Holder: Voter ID used to Depress the Vote

  Excuse me?  How is voter photo identification used as a depression tool? We need a photo ID to drive a car, purchase prescriptions, open a bank account, rent a car, purchase an airline ticket, cash a check, write a check, return merchandise, and a host of other activities. According to Eric Holder, one can only conclude that minorities are: too stupid to get a photo id, or… do not engage in any of the activities described above, or… engaged in voter fraud and do not want to be identified. So which is it? This meme of voter id being … Continue reading

Activist Judge Strikes Down PA Voter ID Law

From FOX News: HARRISBURG, Pa. – A Pennsylvania judge on Friday struck down a requirement that nearly all of the state’s 8.2 million voters show photo identification at the polls, saying it imposes an unreasonable burden on the right to vote and that officials failed to demonstrate the need for it. “Voting laws are designed to assure a free and fair election; the Voter ID Law does not further this goal,” state Commonwealth Court Judge Bernard L. McGinley wrote in a decision that set the stage for a potential courtroom showdown before the state’s highest court. McGinley, a Democrat, said … Continue reading

15 More Benghazi Related Murders

From Freedom Outpost: Does it Matter Now Hillary? Wednesday the Senate finally made a statement about Benghazi. A bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee has found that the State Department could have likely prevented the death of  four Americans in Benghazi if they would not have ignored the intelligence reports and pleas for assistance from our diplomatic mission.  The findings are that increased security was needed. USA Today reports: Congressional Democrats for the first time joined the GOP to  condemn the State Department for refusing security measures they say could have prevented the deaths of the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans in Benghazi. The report, worked on for months and released Wednesday by a  bipartisan Senate intelligence … Continue reading

Rep. Gowdy Ready to Subpoena Hillary

From Capitalism Institute: Nearly a year and a half later, the State Department finally catches up (somewhat) with reality and released the names of the two terrorist organizations suspected for the Benghazi murders: Ansar al-Sharia in Benghazi and Ansar al-Sharia in Darnah. They pinky promise it’s not al Qaeda though, as if that makes anything any better. This must be a little awkward for the New York Times who just days ago published an “investigative report” which held on tightly to the lie that the attacks were spontaneously spurred by a YouTube video — in an effort to protect then-Secretary of … Continue reading
