Federal Government Admits Obamacare Premiums Soaring by 25%

Samsung’s exploding Galaxy Note 7 is an apt comparison to the struggling Obamacare, but not one that anyone expected President Obama to make about his signature policy achievement. “When one of these companies comes out with a new smartphone,” he said, “and it had a few bugs, what do they do? They fix it. They…

Clinton’s Coziness With Media Highlights What’s Wrong With Politics

Politicians’ questionable relationship with journalists is nothing particularly new. In fact the newspaper wars of the 1790s would put to shame any partisan politicking by today’s purported journalists, and could compete with the trollish behavior found on your average internet comment section. If Thomas Jefferson is elected as President, one federalist mouthpiece warned, “Murder, robbery,…

Paul Ryan Lays Out “The Choice Before Us”

Last spring, Paul Ryan attempted to engage in a policy conversation. For too long, he argued, Republican candidates were merely a way for voters to repudiate liberal overreach. The GOP needed to be more than that. They needed to proactively offer solutions to the enormous challenges facing this nation so that voters could vote for…

Democrats Rig the Game in Favor of Their Pal Clinton

There’s probably only one issue that Sen. Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump agree: The system is rigged. In the primary race Sen. Sanders was on the wrong end of a ruthless Democrat Party machine. He wasn’t a woman, or a minority, he was a loud, angry, white guy with tousled hair and ideas that were…

Sorry Sandernistas, Clinton’s Got You Right Where She Wants You

Not too long ago—back when Hillary Clinton was scraping and clawing to out-progressive Bernie Sanders for the Democrat nomination—the former Secretary of State literally laughed off the question of when she would release the transcripts of her paid speeches to Wall Street banks. The insinuation was clear: Never. She long ago made the political calculation…

Young Voters Still See Through Clinton’s Thin Veneer of Sincerity

Hillary Clinton asked a crowd in Orlando the question that has been plaguing Democratic insiders for month: Why isn’t she running away with this election. “Why aren’t I 50 points ahead?,’ you might ask,” before utterly refusing to answer her own question. “Well, the choice for working families has never been clearer. I need help…

Patient Pence Calmly Dismantles Kaine’s Crudeness in VP Debate

The liberal metric for judging the first debate was clear: “Anybody who complains about the microphone is not having a good night,” Hillary Clinton said after the debate. The comment came after Donald Trump pointed out that his microphone was faulty, which prevented people in the room from being able to hear him. It turned…

Clinton: The Woman of a Thousand Faces

What does Hillary Clinton stand for? And is she willing to fight for the causes that are important to young adults? Those two questions should have relatively straightforward answers, especially for a politician who has been in the public spotlight for more than thirty years. And yet, they’ve been impossible to pin down. On the…

Democrats Admit: Millennials a “Huge Problem” for Clinton

When David Plouffe speaks about campaign strategy it’s time to listen. He’s the brains behind Barack Obama’s come-from-nowhere takedown of Sen. Hillary Clinton in the Democrat primary and relatively easy victory over Sen. John McCain in the presidential race. To accomplish those feats he upended conventional campaign strategy and built a future-ready political infrastructure that…

Trump Won on the Most Important Metric: Outsider Status

There have been a lot of printed words, a lot of online polls, and a lot of cable news time devoted to trying to figure out exactly who won last night’s debate. Unsurprisingly, there is nothing resembling a consensus. Some say a prepared Hillary Clinton demolished an off-his-game Donald Trump. Others say Trump’s directness clearly…
