Poll: Majority of Republicans think Obama is a Muslim

If you need further proof of the toxicity of ideology and partisanship, the power of professional talksters to instill a mindset, and the down side of Internet media which allows falsehoods to be passed off as fact and turned into political mantras, you need look no further than this poll: A majority of Republican voters, 54 percent, think that President Obama is a Muslim, according to a new survey from the left-leaning Public Policy...

Another Trump card…

Donald Trump is driving the GOP nuts. Trump’s surging campaign has pushed the party in a different direction, one that often clashes with free-market principles that have long underpinned GOP economic policy. Some establishment Republicans worry that the turn could damage the economy, and their party, for years to come. Trump criticizes government, but he shot to the top of the GOP field by rallying voters against another enemy:...

Digging a hole to build a wall

WASHINGTON — It was just a matter of time before one of the keen-eyed Republican candidates for president spotted the menace that looms over this country, threatening our national security with blasts of Arctic air and proof that socialized medicine works: Canada. Asked on “Meet the Press” whether the United States should consider building a wall to secure its northern border, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said that...

(Update) The Next War: The War on Names

Denali Predictable like the broken clock that is right twice a day, “I-am-very-rich-you-know” presidential wannabe Donald Trump is promising that when finally — and rightfully — in the Trump House he will undo President Obama’s decision to change Mount McKinley’s name to “Denali,” according to The Hill. While the idea of an upcoming “War on Names” was somewhat satirical, once again the GOP proves that (Republican) life...

Walker Walks back statement leaving open idea of U.S. Canada border wall amid Canadian and political fallout

Well, that didn’t take long. In the traditional pattern of American politics, a politician who (you’d think) should know better gives an answer that he really means that gets him hot water or that he doesn’t mean that gets him in hot water. Then, a day later, he a)distances himself from it once it becomes too controversial and can hurt him and b)tries to blame it on the press or something else when he is presumably...

Ohio’s Congressmen Need A Whaaambulance

Native Alaskans are getting back that which was taken from them, and Ohio’s congressmen are howling about it. The citizens of Alaska in general and the natives of Alaska in particular have finally received the justice long denied them. President Barack Obama is undoing the ethnic insult that took place when Alaska’s Mount Denali had its Athabaskan name taken away and replaced with the name of a white man who never set foot...

Why moderates are needed in Congress

Moderates are a vanishing breed on the edge of extinction in Congress. Moderates face electoral challenges not only from the opposing party but from within their own party as well. What have they done to incur the wrath of those inside their parties? They made the choice to cross party lines from time to time and vote for or against legislation because they believed it was in the best interests, not of their party but of the people of...

Iran and the case for realism

WASHINGTON — Foreign policy debates rarely get away from being reflections of domestic political conflicts, but they are also usually based on unstated assumptions and unacknowledged theories. That’s true of the struggle over the Iran nuclear agreement, even if raw politics is playing an exceptionally large role. There are many indications that Republican Sens. Jeff Flake and Susan Collins might in other circumstances be...

Politix Update: The Virulent Cancer That’s Eating Away At The Body Politic

DR. FRANK LUNTZ EXPLAINS HOW TRUMPOSIS SPREADS FROM A SINGLE CELL Scientists discover a new form of cancer. After further research, they conclude that it attacks a wide cross section of adult Americans. The cancer is highly virulent and threatens the body politic as it metasticizes. It is dubbed acute trumpoma carcinoma, or Trumposis for short. Scientists are unsure as to why Trumposis seems to be so contagious, but they have reached...

Scott Walker: Building a wall at the Canadian border might be “a legitimate” idea

Can someone truly, kindly explain what’s going in the Republican Party? If some of these candidates get in power and do what they’re talking about, far from having a “conservative” government, it’s increasingly clear we’d have a radical government. Donald Trump’s signature suggestion is to build a wall at the U.S. Mexico border. Now his fellow Oval Office aspirant Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker...

Update: Facing ridicule about his proposal to track foreign visitors the same way FedEx tracks packages, Gov. Christie attempted to clarify his comments by telling a Fox News Sunday interviewer who pointed out that foreigners do not have labels on their wrists, “I don’t mean people are packages, so let’s not be ridiculous,” according to Reuters. While calling Donald Trump’s plans to deport 11 million undocumented immigrants and...

Bernie Sanders and Martin O’Malley both criticized the Democratic National Committee for rules which show favoritism towards Hillary Clinton, with Sanders pointing out that this is the type of policy which has led to past loses by the Democratic Party. “I do,” Sanders reportedly responded when asked Friday whether he agrees with former Maryland Gov.

Now, for the first time since she began campaigning earlier this year, that position may be in jeopardy. A Bloomberg Politics/Des Moines Register poll released Saturday indicated Vermont Sen.

Remembering Hurricane Katrina and Our Neighbor to the South

A few days ago, an interesting 10-question quiz appeared on TMV designed to “find out which Americans are enablers [of illegal immigrants] and which aren’t.” Here is a two-question quiz to test your knowledge of the true character of our neighbors to the South. 1) Do you believe that Mexicans always cross the border to take advantage of our so-called welfare state? 2) Whether your answer to Question #1 is Yes or No, you may want to...
