Democratic Presidential Hopeful Courts Hollywood: And It’s A Man Baby!

  Hat/Tip to Tina Daunt at The Hollywood Reporter. Yep, it’s kind of a foregone conclusion that if you’re a Democrat running for POTUS, then you HAVE to woo the Hollywood Libs. *yuck* You can’t be a serious Democratic presidential hopeful these days without a fundraising base in Hollywood, which is why former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley is back in town this week to meet with a loyal cadre of industry admirers. O’Malley on Wednesday afternoon made a visit to Sony Studios, where he has longstanding relationships with a number of top executives. On Thursday evening, he’ll attend a high-wattage meet-and-greet […]

‘Everyday Americans’ In New Hampshire Refuse To Shake Hillary’s Hand

  Hat/Tip to IOTWReport.com. For this Editor, there’s not enough hand sanitizer in the WORLD…   Clinton was at Kristin’s Bakery in Keene, NH in advance of a small-business roundtable event She sat with a handful of customers and made her way to the back to greet employees But a cashier told Daily Mail Online that some of the kitchen staff ‘didn’t want to come out to meet Hillary’ because ‘they just don’t like her’ Clinton’s communications director said it’s helpful to recruit future Hillary evangelists from among Democratic activists by pre-screening them to meet Hillary in small settings as […]

James Carville Says Romney Will ‘Get Back In The Race’ After Jeb Drops Out

Hat/Tip to Karen Tumulty and Robert Costa at The Washington Post. With only Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio on the Republican side and Hillary Clinton on the Democratic side OFFICIALLY in the race for the 2016 Presidential Election, speculation still abounds. Saint Anselm College has been a required stop on the pilgrimage for presidential aspirants, going at least as far back as John F. Kennedy and Richard M. Nixon more than a half-century ago. When former Florida governor Jeb Bush (R) made his first speech here on Friday, he pointed to the historic photos on the wall. “I’m […]

Carly Fiorina Set To Run, Says She Will Take Away Hillary’s ‘I’m A Woman’ Argument

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. This is shaping up to be quite the campaign! Republican Carly Fiorina took a step closer to running for president, revealing Thursday that she is near a decision while blasting Hillary Clinton’s policies as “crushing the middle class.” “I am giving serious consideration to becoming a candidate for the presidency because I think our nation is at a pivotal point,” said the former Hewlett-Packard and one-time California Senate candidate. “I think our government has grown so large, so powerful, so costly, so complex, so corrupt in fact that we are crushing the potential for the nation,” she […]

Second Amendment? Ted Cruz Smacks Down A Reporter – Hard

Hat/Tip to Mike Miller at Doug Ross @ Journal. On the 2nd Amendment Ted Cruz Mops The Floor With Reporter’s Attempt At A “Gotcha Question.” You’ve gotta love how he so Reaganesguely deconstructs, and thus takes the power away from the typical far left ‘gotcha’ question.   At a recent event, GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz was asked the following question: “In the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting, a statistic surfaced putting support for background checks at 90%. Did you go against the want of the nation with your vote against Manchin-Toomey (a bill that would have required background […]

Hillz First Campaign Speech Tackles Free Speech – Go Figure

Hat/Tip to Andrew Malcom at Investors Business Daily. Yep, we’re not even really underway as far as the 2016 Presidential Election is concerned, but Hillz is already talking about taking away some of our rights… You may very well have missed it. But at her first 2016 campaign stop in Iowa Tuesday, wannabe president Hillary Clinton called for a constitutional amendment if necessary to limit free speech rights granted by the Supreme Court to unions, companies and organizations donating to political campaigns. Few might have expected the ex-Obama aide to kick off her second bid to infiltrate the Oval Office […]

Is Rubio Eligible To Be POTUS?

  Hat/Tip to Javier Manjarres at Breitbart. Editor’s Note: We ran a story about Marco Rubio which was written by Ken McIntyre at The Daily Signal. From the feedback of the comments, it would seem that, once again there are those who, armed with Google have their own interpretation of what the term natural born citizen means. Here, reprinted in its entirety, is an article from April of 2013 by Breitbart.com, one of the MOST Conservative websites on the planet. Conservative Hideout takes no sides on this issue, as we have ‘no dog in the fight’, so to speak. Our job […]

Both Ted Cruz And Marco Rubio Are Eligible To Be President Or Vice-President

Editor’s Note: We ran a story about Marco Rubio which was written by Ken McIntyre at The Daily Signal. From the feedback of the comments, it would seem that, once again there are those who, armed with Google have their own interpretation of what the term natural born citizen means. Here, reprinted in its entirety, is an article from September of 2013 by Diane Sori at the Tea Party Tribune, which is among the staunchest Conservative websites in the blogosphere. Conservative Hideout takes no sides on this issue, as we have ‘no dog in the fight’, so to speak. Our job is to present […]

“I Want A Woman President, Just Not You!”

Hat/Tip to the Conservative Tribune. In one of her famous opening segment monologues, Judge Jeanine Pirro ripped Hillary Clinton to shreds over her credibility, or rather lack of credibility. I wouldn’t want to be on this lady’s bad side. Very few people would ever confuse the Fox News Channel’s Judge Jeanine Pirro with a supporter of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. However, just to make sure that her views are clear as can be, the fiery judge ripped into the former Secretary of State, Senator, and first lady during her “Opening Statement” on her Saturday evening program. Judge Jeanine began by […]

Democrats Want House Back, But Don’t Want Pelosi Back

Hat/Tip to IOTWReport.com. So even the Left has a point in which someone of their own can wear out her welcome… Who’d A Thunk It? There is growing consensus in the House is that their only chance to retake the House is to move Nancy Pelosi out the door.  Not even the biggest propagandist the democrats have in the tamestream media will not predict that happening in 2016.  Even the democrats like Massachusetts Democratic Rep. Stephen Lynch, who want to dump Pelosi knows it will take more than one election to regain their power.  I agree with him but while he […]

Run Rubio, Run!: The Florida Senator Bets It All On Becoming POTUS

Hat/Tip to Ken McIntyre at The Daily Signal. Marco Rubio said that if he ran for President, that he wouldn’t seek reelection to the United States Senate. You have to admire that type of integrity. There’s a great piece at The Daily Signal, by Ken McIntyre. It’s a very thorough article, covering everything from Rubio’s family to his stance on foreign policy. Here it is, in its entirety: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Marco Rubio, little more than four years into his first term in the Senate, is back home in Miami today. The Republican is scheduled to announce for higher office again, this time […]

Irony Alert: The One Email She Didn’t Erase Announces She’s Running For President

Hat/Tip to Nickarama at Weasel Zippers. So she FINALLY produces an email, and it’s the one which says she’s running for POTUS. Go figure. Podesta sends email to Hillary 2008 alumni announcing she is in — first official announcement from the campaign. pic.twitter.com/AsOEw6Z33T — Jesse Berney (@jesseberney) April 12, 2015 .

Hillary Lays The Smack Down On The Press: Gives Them Rules On How To Cover Her Campaign

Hat/Tip to the Conservative Tribune. The audacity of the Left. But in reality, that IS the Left. They seek to control EVERYTHING except themselves. With Hillary’s announcement of her presidential candidacy expected on Sunday, conservative pundits are already locking and loading for what promises to be a long drawn out battle. Among those is Rush Limbaugh, the conservative talk show host famous for his sometimes edgy statements and reputation for telling it like it is. Yesterday, he posted a picture of Hillary on Facebook along with a quite disturbing caption, which, if true, should make us all shudder. Here it is: […]

Ted Cruz Is Serious…And So Is His Fundraising Machine

Hat/Tip to Rebecca Berg at The Washington Examiner. Maybe Senator Cruz should give a hat/tip to Jeb Bush… In his first week as a presidential candidate, the Texas senator raked in more than $4 million for his campaign account, including $1.5 million from major donors, and he has already brought in hundreds of thousands more dollars since. A herd of super PACs supporting Cruz brought in another $31 million, Bloomberg reported Wednesday — an eye-popping sum that has stunned more than a few competing Republicans. Bush, a former Florida governor whose powerful family has deep roots in Texas, has factored […]

Ted Cruz Is A Natural (Born Citizen)

Hat/Tip to The Cato Institute and Mark Levin. All of a sudden, the Libs are bothered by eligibility, along with some on the Right who seem to take great pleasure in sticking a fork in the eye of the most truly Conservative candidate to come down the pike since Ronald Reagan. But even though the naysayers like to pretend that they know what they are talking about, it just isn’t true. What was it Reagan said about the Left? “The trouble with our Liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.” […]

Law Professor Says “It’s Just Not True” To Ted Cruz Birthers

Hat/Tip to The Blaze. Okay, so the “Ted Cruz isn’t a natural born citizen” crowd are a persistent lot. But here is more proof that they are wrong. It’s hard to believe but the birthers are back. This time they’re going after Senator Ted Cruz, who announced his candidacy for President of the United States Monday morning. Robbie George, a law professor at Princeton University, joined Glenn to dispel the theories before they could spread during an interview on TheBlaze TV. Glenn: Professor Robbie George is a law professor at Princeton University, knew Senator Cruz from his time as a […]

12 Reasons Ted Cruz Is A Strong GOP 2016 Candidate

Hat/Tip to Jim Meyers at Newsmax. Ted Cruz has established himself as a rare breed of politician – in that he does in Washington DC what he promises to do on the campaign trail. Love him or hate him, you have to give him kudos for standing on principle and not wavering or succumbing to political pressure. Here is an article from Newsmax about a Ted Cruz candidacy, reprinted in its entirety: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Texas Sen. Ted Cruz announced on Monday that he is running for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016, making him the first major candidate to officially toss […]

Yes, Ted Cruz IS Eligible To Serve As President

Hat/Tip to Greg Conterio at Western Free Press. As 2016, and the end of the Obama era fades into the dustbin of history, along with all the other failed regimes of the world, we Americans look towards the peaceful transfer of power, and the next chapter in our nation’s story. In doing so, we begin to evaluate those among us who may seek to hold the highest office in our land. There are many potential contenders out there, on both sides of the aisle, so to speak. We have of course Hillary on the Democratic side, along with Elizabeth Warren, […]
