🌟Jim Cardoza: Why Hillary Clinton is Flashing a Devilish Smile

"Certainly, one does not need 20-20 vision to see warts on Donald Trump. They are neon. He is brash, arrogant, far too glib, frequently insulting and routinely defensive. Unlike a polished politician, he hasn’t learned to measure his words and shroud his intentions. But while he is admittedly flawed in a myriad of ways, he does present two very under-appreciated qualities in the era of FBI cover-upssecret domestic surveillance and other hidden agenda schemes."

Hillary Clinton Health Update: Now Her Eyes Are Going Crazy

As Hillary Clinton’s health continues to be an issue in the final weeks of this year’s presidential contest, there is suddenly a focus on the Democrat’s “mysterious” eye movements during a speech Monday in Philadelphia.

“Hillary’s eyes appeared not in-sync with one another, as the left eye looked to be cock-eyed and displaced, especially as she looked towards the left,” noted John Binder of the American Mirror. The ocular phenomenon even prompted the popular Drudge Report to splash a banner headline reading, “Unfocused.” It featured a black-and-white still shot from Clinton’s appearance. Clinton’s speech in Philadelphia came the same day two doctors told WND the Democratic Party nominee is suffering a serious neurological disease that should disqualify her from being president. ...

Thomas Sowell: Old Lies

We expect to hear a lot of lies during an election year, and this year is certainly no exception. What is surprising is how old some of these lies are, and how often they have been shown to be lies, years ago or even decades ago. ... MORE


Thomas Sowell: The 'Voice Of The People' Fallacy

An understanding of convenience.      We hear many fallacies in election years. The fallacy that seems to be most popular this year is that, if Donald Trump comes close to getting the 1,237 delegates required to become the Republican nominee, and that nomination goes instead to someone else, then the convention will have ignored "the voice   ...

That Weirdly Interesting Libertarian Party Debate On Fox

by Jeffrey Tucker.      Hooray for John Stossel! He has dedicated two issues of his wonderful show on Fox Business to hosting a debate between Libertarian Party aspirants to the presidency. The format is great. The questions in part one were solid. John does an excellent job. And the candidates were fascinating to watch. Within the LP itself, this    ... MORE

Anthony L. Fisher: How Distrust Of Donald Trump And Hillary Clinton Have Made the Libertarian Party Relevant

The dawning of a libertarian moment? Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, the likely presidential nominees of America’s two major political parties, would be among the best-known and most-disliked candidates in history. What better time for the Libertarian Party (LP), the only third party that will be on all 50 states’ ballots, to make its move    ... MORE

How The West Was Shunned In Primary Politics

by Froma Harrop.   There's a not-insignificant part of the United States known as the West Coast. It includes such prominent states as California, Oregon and Washington. These states have yet to hold a single presidential primary or caucus. But at 8 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on Tuesday, this population center of 50 million-plus souls was informed that the ... MORE

Walter E. Block: Libertarians For Trump

The case for Trump being the libertarians best bet.  Dr. Donald Miller (donaldwmiller@gmail.com) and I (wblock@loyno.edu) are starting up a new group to be called Libertarians for Trump. LFT has its work cut out for it in mobilizing massive support for Donald Trump within the libertarian community. For there are some libertarians who    ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: Desperate Tactics

The panic over Trump. It is desperation time for the Republican party establishment. Its extremely well financed favorite — Jeb Bush — never got anywhere with the voters in the primaries, and has already been forced out of the contest. This should at least cause some second thoughts — or perhaps first thoughts — by people who keep repeating that   ... MORE

Hans A. Von Spakovsky: The Obama Administration Wants To Make Sure Non-Citizens Vote In The Upcoming Election

Why Democrats hate voter ID.   Several well-funded organizations — including the League of Women Voters and the NAACP — are fighting efforts to prevent non-citizens from voting illegally in the upcoming presidential election. And the United States Department of Justice, under the direction of Attorney General Loretta Lynch, is helping    ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: Tragedy And Choices

Where Donald Trump may lead.     Amid the petty bickering, loud rhetoric and sordid attack ads in this year's primary election campaigns, the death of a giant — Justice Antonin Scalia — suddenly overshadows all of that. The vacancy created on the Supreme Court makes painfully clear the huge stakes involved when we choose a President of the United   ... MORE

Twitter Is Gearing Up To Interfere In The Election

by Milo Yiannopoulos.       Last week, a report from BuzzFeed claimed that Twitter was about to implement an algorithmic news feed, a departure from the chronologically-ordered tweets which users have grown accustomed to, and by which the platform is defined. CEO Jack Dorsey sought to calm users by saying they had no plans to implement  ... MORE

Andrew Napolitano: What If There Is No Difference?

What are the lovers of liberty to do?    What if all the remaining presidential candidates really want the same things? What if they all offer essentially the same ideas couched in different words? What if these primary races have become beauty pageants largely based on personality and advertising? What if our system of governance is so deep   ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: Grow Up

A narcissist with followers. Of all the many things said about Donald Trump, what was said by Roger Ailes, head of the Fox News Channel, said it all in just two words: "Grow up!" It is amazing how many people have been oblivious to this middle-aged man's spoiled brat behavior, his childish boastfulness about things he says he is going to do, and his     ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: What Are Elections For?

Donald Trump and the insight of Eric Hoffer.     After months of watching all sorts of political polls, we are finally just a few weeks away from actually beginning to see some voting in primary elections. Polls let people vent their emotions. But elections are held to actually accomplish something. The big question is whether the voters themselves   ... MORE

Stephanie Slade: Why Polls Don't Work

Election predicting hits an accuracy crisis.  On October 7, 2015, the most famous brand in public opinion polling announced it was getting out of the horse-race survey business. Henceforth, Gallup would no longer poll Americans on whom they would vote for if the next election were held today. "We believe to put our time and money and brain-power   ... MORE

Americans Are Abandoning Political Parties

by Kenneth Walsh. Both major political parties are in trouble with the American people. The latest Gallup Poll finds that loyalty to the Democrats and Republicans is at or near historic lows. In 2015, for the fifth straight year, "at least four in 10 U.S. adults identified as political independents," a Gallup spokesman said. Forty-two percent said they were       ... MORE
