Stumped Trump lashes out at Hewitt for foreign-policy questions
9/4/2015 10:01:49 AM  Ed Morrissey
After a few relatively friendly appearances on the Hugh Hewitt Show, Donald Trump got put through a series of tough foreign-policy questions in Hugh’s usual style for candidates. Trump got stumped and complained during the interview about dealing

New Jersey is the latest state to buck the EPA on emission levels
9/4/2015 9:21:54 AM  Jazz Shaw
Sire! The peasants are revolting! The Environmental Protection Agency is getting kicked around quite a bit these days, with one state after another rejecting the government mandates to drastically reduce carbon emissions from power plants along with

This week on Politinerds we welcome Jim Geraghty of National Review fame, along with being a regular feature on CNN, Fox News and MSNBC. And let’s just get the big news out of the way up front… GERAGHTY ENDORSES TRUMP! Okay… not

Mills: I reviewed the ARB report on Benghazi before publication, made "suggestions" for changes
9/4/2015 8:01:33 AM  Ed Morrissey
Yesterday, the House Select Committee on Benghazi began a new phase of its probe into the collapse of America’s policy on Libya. Cheryl Mills, chief of staff to then-Secretary Hillary Clinton, appeared before the panel to detail what she knew about

Quotes of the day

Five of six deputies in the office of a Kentucky county clerk taken into custody Thursday for her refusal to issue marriage licenses after the Supreme Court allowed gays to wed say they will process the paperwork starting Friday. But Rowan County Clerk

Hillary spox: What is this 'wiping' you speak of? No idea what that means.
9/3/2015 10:01:13 PM  Mary Katharine Ham
I mean, her husband quibbled about the meaning of “is,” so it’s not terribly surprising that pretending they don’t know what “wiped” means is the tack they’re taking when it comes to Hillary Clinton’s

Hugh Hewitt to Trump: Do you know who the Quds Force is?
9/3/2015 9:21:00 PM  Allahpundit
Starts off bad, with Hewitt asking him about the Quds Force and Trump replying with an applause line about the Kurds, and progresses inexorably from there to Trump grumbling that it’s a “gotcha” to ask him if he recognizes the heads of

Democrats now own the Iran deal, lock, stock, and barrel
9/3/2015 8:41:54 PM  Ed Morrissey
To some extent, Democrats couldn’t have escaped political ownership of the Iran deal even if Congress managed to hold the line and override a veto of a rejection of the deal. Democrats backed Barack Obama’s play to treat the deal as an

Trump: "People burning the flag, I don't like them in this country"
9/3/2015 8:01:15 PM  Allahpundit
This is so far off the conservative radar right now that it practically qualifies as a palate cleanser. Still, I admire Jamie Weinstein’s spirit of mischief in quizzing Trump on it, knowing the evergreen potential for questions about flag-burning

Defense One survey: Two-thirds of national security community rejects Iran deal
9/3/2015 7:21:29 PM  Matt Vespa
To piggyback off Guy’s post showing that Americans overwhelmingly oppose Obama's Iran deal, a new survey conducted by Government Business Council and Defense One shows that 66 percent of the national security community also opposes the agreement.

Cory Booker is all in on the Iran deal
9/3/2015 6:41:23 PM  Jazz Shaw
There’s an old song which refers to “when the dam breaks.” You never know who will jump on for the ride, and in the case of the Iran deal the next Johnny Come Lately is New Jersey Senator Corey Booker. After sitting on the fence for the

Arby's apologizes to police department after employee refused to serve officer
9/3/2015 6:01:46 PM  Matt Vespa
An Arby's location in Florida was forced to apologize after an employee refused to serve a local police officer. USA Today reported that 19-year-old drive-thru clerk Kenneth Davenport at the Pembroke Pines Arby's didn't want to serve the officer, and was

Another ally of the Chevron Shakedown bails out
9/3/2015 5:21:52 PM  Jazz Shaw
Talk about persistence. The ongoing saga of the Ecuador Chevron Shakedown has been playing out for years now but it’s still not over. Even though Big Apple attorney Steven Donziger has been knocked down repeatedly in the courts and seen a judge

Breaking: Five deputy clerks in Kentucky county agree to start issuing marriage licenses tomorrow
9/3/2015 4:41:29 PM  Allahpundit
I guess this answers the question in the last post about whether they have the authority to defy Davis’s orders. Or does it? What if Davis attempts to fire her deputies for insubordination? If they could have defied her all along, why’d they

Don't rush to judgment on Texas deputies who killed man with hands up
9/3/2015 4:01:11 PM  Taylor Millard
It’s really hard not to rush to judgment on the two Texas deputies who shot and killed a man with his hands up. Long distance cell phone video of last Friday’s interaction between Gilbert Flores and the Bexar County deputies shows Flores

Trump: Okay, okay, I signed the GOP loyalty pledge
9/3/2015 3:21:16 PM  Allahpundit
Look closely at the screencap and you’ll see he listed the date mistakenly as “August 3, 2015,” which I believe makes this non-binding. TRUMP WINS AGAIN. In all seriousness, I was kind of hoping he’d walk out to the podium,

Emails reveal that Hillary Clinton helped out a for profit school that paid Bill millions
9/3/2015 2:41:51 PM  Jazz Shaw
More emerging Hillary email news from the Good Work if You Can Get It department. Among the latest batch of emails to be released we find Hillary Clinton getting right to work shortly after she took her seat at the State Department. The

Kentucky clerk who refused to issue marriage licenses after SCOTUS ruling sent to jail for contempt of court
9/3/2015 1:53:19 PM  Allahpundit
An interesting detail from BuzzFeed: Lawyers for the gay couples who want her to issue the licenses asked the court to fine her, not send her to jail. Since when do gay-rights supporters ask for leniency for a Christian who’s defying them on gay

Jeb Bush to Trump: What's wrong with speaking Spanish?
9/3/2015 1:21:25 PM  Allahpundit
Here’s another demonstration, says David Frum, that Bush is never more passionate than when he’s talking about immigration and biculturalism. The Trump/Bush debate over whether it’s appropriate to address Latino voters in Spanish is

New York rolls out Yes Means Yes plan to combat "college rape culture"
9/3/2015 12:41:03 PM  Jazz Shaw
Earlier this summer New York Governor Andrew Cuomo followed the trail blazed by California legislators and put a new “affirmative consent” law in place to combat sexual assault on college campuses. (These are commonly known as Yes Means Yes

Tom Brady beats NFL in Deflategate appeal because God hates the Jets
9/3/2015 11:21:19 AM  Allahpundit
I kid. The fact that the Jets exist at all proves that there is no God. Note that the court didn’t rule that Brady was innocent in Deflategate. The ruling was that Roger Goodell’s decision to suspend him for four games was an arbitrary
