Carly Fiorina appeared on CNN this week with Jake Tapper who asked her how she could oppose Obamacare as a cancer survivor. Tapper respectfully pointed out that she’s a survivor of breast cancer and asked about the provision which requires coverage of pre-existing conditions.

Fiorina responded by saying that while she supports...

The last time I wrote about Jon Stewart, I noted that his last show was the same night as the first Republican debate and that I looked forward to seeing a ratings comparison for that night. In case you haven’t heard, the debate won and it wasn’t even close.

The man in the video below is Sergeant Robert Bartlett who was wounded in Iraq in 2005.

Bartlett is part of a group called Veterans Against the Deal which obviously opposes the Iran Nuclear Deal. The video makes a very strong statement because you’re hearing from someone who has experienced the brutality...

As a member of Generation X, I have a very clear memory of 1970’s TV shows. In the days before cable, our choices were limited but the quality of many shows was much higher.

Every week, my entire family would sit down together to watch certain programs and one of them...

The Democratic Party recently released its primary debate schedule and compared to the prolonged schedule of 2008, it’s tiny.

Party leaders are obviously trying to protect Hillary Clinton by limiting the amount of damage that could be done to her campaign in debate soundbites and video clips, but her Democratic rivals are...

Scott Walker appeared on CBS This Morning Friday to talk about his campaign and how he did in the debate.

Oddly enough, as soon as Walker started talking about Hillary Clinton, Norah O’Donnell wanted to shift the conversation to Donald Trump and obviously wanted Walker to answer for Trump’s words...

If you’re one of the people who think it’s madness to prohibit the carrying of firearms in military workplaces, there’s some good news developing.

The U.S. Navy is planning to place armed guards at reserve centers.

While everyone has been talking about the Republican debate on Thursday night, the Democratic Party finally announced its (small) debate schedule.

It’s almost like the party wants to minimize the number of times Ms. Clinton appears in a debate with her challengers, some of whom are already complaining.

CNN reported:

It’s ironic and perhaps not accidental that tonight marks both the first Republican Primary debate on FOX News, and the final episode of the Daily Show with Jon Stewart. I look forward to a ratings comparison next week.

On Monday, Elizabeth Warren took to the senate floor and made a series of bizarre accusations about the awful series of Planned Parenthood videos. Senator Warren apparently believes this is all part of a vast right-wing conspiracy to take away women’s rights.

Maybe progressives should find a different politician to clone.

If you thought the faith progressives have in Elizabeth Warren was over the top, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

So strong is the left’s love of all things Warren, they’re now trying to create an army of political candidates just like her to run for public office.
