Trump exhibited some legal understanding of the issue, citing an op-ed written by Harvard Professor Laurence Tribe. Trump’s conclusion was that...

The video below was released last night on Facebook by former Clinton Secretary of Labor and noted liberal Robert Reich.

Reich’s argument is that Cruz actually believes his conservatism. Reich is right on a big picture basis, even if he exaggerates or distorts a couple of Cruz’s positions. Trump, by contrast, is...

This should get the holiday weekend off to a nice, quiet start.

Donald Trump, angry that negative ads are being run against him, is threatening to sue to keep Ted Cruz out of the race based on the claim that Cruz is not a “natural born Citizen” and not eligible....

An ad put out by the Ted Cruz campaign attacking Donald Trump is brilliant.

The production quality is high, it’s funny, and it goes to a core public perception of Trump as a candidate — that he is not to be treated as a serious person. Trump has the highest national negatives...

Despite studies that clearly demonstrate that women underperform and cause their entire unit to underperform in combat training, the left still seems enamored of the idea that women should be forced upon the military in these combat positions.  Indeed, now all branches of the military, including special ops, are required to...

Jimmy Carter has joined with much of the Republican establishment in expressing preference for Donald Trump over Ted Cruz because Trump will make deals.

Ted Cruz is intelligent, articulate, and well-prepared to defend and protect the Constitution as the next president of the United States.  He entered the national spotlight during his contentious 2012 run for the Senate, but it’s worth taking a look at his resume because it highlights long-standing and staunch support of...
