I first heard about this story in the car listening to Rush Limbaugh. It sounded bad.

Politico was reporting that a supposedly central part of Dr. Ben Carson’s personal narrative was fabricated, EXCLUSIVE: Ben Carson admits fabricating West Point Scholarship [link to Wayback Machine preserved version since edits made by Politico...

Jeb’s Best Hope: Win Ugly

Jeb Bush’s campaign is in trouble, there’s no doubt about that.

His debate performances have been disastrous, he hasn’t generated enthusiasm, and he’s dropped to 5th place in the polling composites.

No longer will Jeb be standing on the debate stage in the center three spots next to Trump. The symbolism of Jeb...

Cornell University isn’t paranoid, James O’Keefe really is out to get it.

When Cornell Media Relations overreacted to Jesse Watters asking students questions on campus, I wrote that it made no sense on the surface, but might reflect paranoia about James O’Keefe, who previously did a sting video at Cornell:

This is sad.

First, at the CNBC Debate, Jeb’s perfectly good but badly-timed dig at Marco Rubio about the French 3-day work week completely backfired:

This is the next battlefield, which already has arrived.

As far as the feds are concerned, it is unlawful discrimination if a school provides anything less than full, unrestricted access for male transgender students to areas previously deemed private girls-only areas, such as showers and locker rooms.

Jesse Watters of the O’Reilly Factor on Fox News visited Cornell late last month to interview students about a Cornell Daily Sun report that over 96% of faculty donations went to Democrats.

And then a funny thing happened. Cornell Media Relations shut Watters down. Which created — as I predicted — a

Unfortunately, Palestinian propaganda promises those “martyred” while killing or attempting to kill Jews an after-life of glory and paradise. This, of course, perpetuates the conflict and death on all sides.

In a twist on that theme, two Palestinians shot and killed while carrying out knifing attacks were posthumously married at a funeral...

The GOP has a long history of subjecting its candidates to abuse by debate moderators.

From George Stephanopolous to Candy Crowley, debates are a time for network journalists to earn their battle badges by damaging Republicans.

And the GOP just sucks it up and takes it.

It has long been obvious that Jeb Bush doesn’t have what it takes in this presidential election cycle.

Part of it is beyond Jeb’s control – there is little appetite outside the donor class for another Bush at the head of the ticket.

More than that, Jeb’s reaction to Donald Trump’s comments about...

On Monday night, October 26, 2015, The O’Reilly Factor ran a Watters’ World segment with student-on-the-street interviews.

The highlight of the segment was that Cornell shut down Jesse Watters on air during student interviews.

WHY? WHY? WHY?

The Cornell Daily Sun student newspaper ran an excellent article showing that over 96% of Cornell faculty political donations went to Democrats. It was simple, ahem, math.

Yours truly was quoted extensively, as we reported with mathematical precision, 97% of faculty donations at Cornell Univ. to Democrats:
