Scott Walker has a solid lead in this new Monmouth Iowa poll, in keeping with what has been the pattern for a while now and with his natural strengths there. He’s clearly the Iowa frontrunner.

The Dodd-Frank Five-Year Anniversary Is as Bad as We Thought It Would Be

We Interrupt Our Regular Trump Programming to Announce America’s Surrender to Iran and Global Governance

At the New York Times website this morning, if you dig down under stories on the Donald Trump Circus, you will find a one-line link, buried beneath several other one-line links, to a report titled, “ U.N. Vote on Iran Nuclear Deal Irks...Show More Summary
