Presidential Horse Race 2016: Jeb Bush, the unconvincing underdog

Jeb Bush cuts loose nearly half his campaign, tries to take on underdog role. Plus, Trump says Iowa polls are wrong – at least some of them; Ted Cruz has a Carson problem, and, Fiorina needs a big hit in the CNBC debate.

Why Benghazi Should Keep Hillary Clinton Up At Night

Ron Fournier, National Journal

Is  she a liar or a stateswoman? For the vast majority of Americans who long ago answered that question in their own minds, Hillary Rodham Clinton’s testimony on Benghazi changed nothing.

Hillary’s horrid Benghazi-hearing howlers

New York Post Editorial Board

For those who’ve followed the investigation carefully, Clinton’s hours-long testimony only provided more questions than answers about her role during and after the 2012 terror attack that left four US officials dead. That’s especially true of her flatly dishonest testimony — accompanied by icy stares of contempt and boredom — about her ongoing relationship with her family’s veteran propagandist-fixer, Sidney Blumenthal.

She Knew All Along

Kimberly A. Strassel, The Wall Street Journal

Mrs. Clinton complained in her testimony on Capitol Hill that past Congresses had never made the overseas deaths of U.S. officials a “partisan” issue. That’s because those past deaths had never inspired an administration to concoct a wild excuse for their occurrence, in an apparent attempt to avoid blame for a terror attack in a presidential re-election year.

Hillary’s Benghazi Hearing Performance

Those optimistic Republicans who thought Hillary Clinton would come before the Benghazi Committee to ask forgiveness from the families of the four Americans killed by her dereliction of duty during the attack on our consulate, and then breakdown and also cop to personally shooting Vince Foster and accepting bribes through the elaborate ruse known as Whitewater, were unfortunately disappointed by Hillary Clinton's performance at yesterday's Benghazi Committee hearing.

Benghazi and 'Untrustable' Hillary

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

The one consistent media line on Benghazi is that exploring it was "political" immediately after it happened on Sept.11, 2012, and it's still "political" to explore it in 2015 and 2016. As long as the Clintons stay active in politics, their scandals will continue, as will the damage control.

Presidential Horse Race 2016: Kneel at the feet of Hillary Clinton

With Joe Biden out, commence the coronation of Hillary. Plus, another poll shows Donald Trump way out in front; Should we be making real decisions based on shaky polls?; Romney says as traditional media fails, “insurgents” rise, and, Ben Carson’s unequivocal position on gay marriage.

Illegal immigrants could elect Hillary Clinton

Paul Goldman and Mark J. Rozell, Politico

Illegal immigrants—along with other noncitizens without the right to vote—may pick the 2016 presidential winner. Thanks to the unique math undergirding the Electoral College, the mere presence of 11-12 million illegal immigrants and other noncitizens here legally may enable them to swing the election from Republicans to Democrats.

Email woes, Sanders surge rattle Clinton's Hill backers

Burgess Everett, Politico

“It isn’t like they’re dead set against Hillary. But they find Bernie’s message to be the right message.” – Sen. Dick Durbin.

Margaret Sanger and Hillary Clinton: Trafficking in the Bodies of African - Americans

With 1,876 African – American babies being aborted every day, the revelations that Planned Parenthood is trafficking in the body parts of aborted babies shows that for Margaret Sanger’s inheritors, like Hillary Clinton, the buying and selling of African – Americans remains perfectly acceptable.

New polls: Trump can’t lose and Hillary can’t win

streiff, RedState

If the SurveyUSA poll is to be believed, Trump is succeeding in putting together a credible political presence in the black, Hispanic, and Asian communities, something that eluded both McCain and Romney. Why the GOP wouldn’t try to find out what he’s doing right is beyond me. But unless this idiocy stops the GOP will have thrown away a gimme election.

The complicated history of Hillary and Boehner

Scott Wong, The Hill

Hillary Clinton and Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) have a complicated relationship, and it’s far from warm and fuzzy. That much was obvious with the disclosure of a 2010 email to then-Secretary of State Clinton from her longtime confidant, Sidney Blumenthal, who disparaged Boehner as an “alcoholic” and “lazy” as he prepared to ascend to the Speakership.

Democrats Get It Right On Boehner And Bush

As CHQ Chairman Richard Viguerie observed in his book TAKEOVER, the stock-in-trade of Democrats and the Left is to lie to make Republican candidates look scary to various independent segments of the electorate; the non-existent war on women, alleged Republican racism and “meanness” to the underprivileged are just a few of these tactics. But what if Democrats actually told the truth about a Republican, like John Boehner or Jeb Bush?

Free College? Jeb And Hillary Looking More Alike Every Day

In their "free" college plans Bush and Clinton are competing for the same voters; millennials who made poor choices and their indulgent parents who enabled them and are now stuck with the bill. Most importantly, Bush and Clinton are competing for the support of the same corporate interests who favor Common Core and its focus on producing compliant workers, instead of citizens who have the information and thinking skills to actively participate in the civic life of a republic.

Bush and Clinton: The Fading Dynasty Candidates

Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush are fading in the polls because the momentum in this election has shifted away from rule by the political class and toward a populist majority that rejects government by a deceitful and avaricious self-selected elite. The question the election of 2016 will settle is whether the voters will choose populism on the right or populism on the left to replace the fading dynasties.

Is Huma Abedin Hillary Clinton's Alger Hiss?

A security clearance and access to the highest levels of American military and diplomatic intelligence are not constitutional rights. It is time for Ms. Abedin to be put under oath to answer questions about her associations with the Muslim Brotherhood, whether or not she lied during her security clearance process and her role in moving classified material from the secure State Department system to the unsecure Hillary Clinton email server.

The Worst Thing About Hillary’s Email Scandal

Now that classified military intelligence has been found in an unclassified email from Hillary Clinton's longtime aide Huma Abedin we wonder if any inquiry into whether Ms. Abedin’s family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood was ever conducted. Answering that question is of paramount urgency now that it has been revealed that Huma Abedin was at the heart of a breach of America’s most sensitive intelligence while she was Hillary Clinton’s deputy chief of staff at the State Department.

The Democrats have a candidate shortage

Chicago Tribune Editorial Board

Democrats, by contrast, have only five candidates. At the moment, it's really a two-person contest between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. And those two options suggest the party could be in trouble come November 2016.

Hillary sends message: Open season to attack America

Steve Guest, Daily Caller

Carly Fiorina, appearing on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday with Martha Raddatz, blasted Hillary Clinton’s handling of the Benghazi terrorist attack, saying Hillary told the world that “we can attack an embassy, murder four Americans and nothing is going to happen.”
