When the Vice-President of a two term President seeks to reach the highest office in the land, they usually have a built-in advantage over all other contenders: It’s pretty much a truism in American political history: If the president is not running again and the vice president wants his party’s nomination, it’s his…

We’ve got some real staffer-on-senator, Republican-on-Democrat violence brewing up in Wisconsin—and it (mercifully) has nothing at all to do with the 2016 presidential cycle. Senator Tammy Baldwin’s former Deputy State Director has officially filed an ethics complaint against the Wisconsin democrat, accusing the Senator of firing and demoting staffers in an…

College campuses are meant to be a place where students engage in new perspectives and critical reasoning. Or so they say. But by labeling conservative points of view as “extremist,” “anti-feminist,” and “racist,” feminists are shutting down the dialogue on their college campuses before it even begins. To the leftist student activists, it…
