King v. Burwell oral arguments

The Post reports: “Supreme Court justices split along ideological lines Wednesday in questioning during the latest legal battle over the Affordable Care Act, making the outcome difficult to predict. Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., who saved the act from a constitutional challenge three years ago, this time asked no questions that would betray his thoughts. If […]

Mike Huckabee on Netanyahu, wage stagnation, 2016 and more

Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee is certainly on the go. He traveled to 38 states last year to help candidates in the midterms and this week alone is in six states. Whether he runs for president or continues to work the trail for others, he certainly sees a lot of America and talks to a […]

The Rubio-Lee tax plan

Sens. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) have rolled out a tax plan they bill as pro-growth and pro-family. That in and of itself is significant in that a policy spat of sorts had broken out in the GOP between those who see economic growth as the overriding value in tax reform and those […]

Obama has already lost on Iran

The White House is not bothering to defend the concessions it has made to Iran because they are indefensible. Instead President Obama sets out to convince the media that the only alternative to his bad deal is war (more sanctions, a credible threat of military action and a new president with superior credibility are all […]

Hypocritical mainstream media enable Hillary Clinton

One strongly suspects that many in the mainstream media would dearly love for Hillary Clinton to go away. Her presence in the 2016 presidential race would make it the most boring Democratic primary since, well, 2012. After all, she is essentially running as the unopposed incumbent seeking a third term. It would also relieve liberal […]

The White House’s strange, illogical response to Netanyahu

To all those who imagined President Obama would not let Iran keep its illegal nuclear program and then get a green flag for breakout after 10 years, you were wrong. Yes, Obama actually is capitulating entirely after years of saying that negotiations would make clear Iran had to give up its nuclear ambitions. It was […]

Morning Bits

It is not like this is a new thing. “Clinton has become so powerful, so important a figure to so many, it appears that those around her either actively enable her willful flouting of the rules or lack the courage to inform her of them.” What happened to the new “regular order”? “Senate Democrats are […]

John Kasich could be a formidable candidate

“It was the first time I’d been on the floor in 15 years,” Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) told me with characteristic enthusiasm as he headed to the airport after viewing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to Congress. Kasich is 62 years old, but retains the boyish gee-whiz attitude that many recall from years in […]

Obama has the problem, not Netanyahu

The administration would desperately like to talk about Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech. That’s why House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) had a public meltdown (“I was near tears throughout the Prime Minister’s speech — saddened by the insult to the intelligence of the United States as part of the P5 +1 nations, and […]

What’s the case for Jeb Bush?

We have looked at the arguments in favor of the Republican presidential nomination for former Texas governor Rick Perry, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.). Today we look at former Florida governor Jeb Bush. There are well-known objections — the dynasty problem, the desire for a new generation of leaders and his […]

What Benjamin Netanyahu just did

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to Congress was a devastating indictment of the P5+1?s entire approach, and it reminded and reunited Democrats and Republicans, as did Sen. Robert Menendez’s speech to AIPAC Monday, on what is at stake and why the deal under contemplation can never come to pass. As a preliminary matter, it is evident […]

Chappaqua, we have a problem

Which of the following is the worst? • “Hillary Rodham Clinton exclusively used a personal email account to conduct government business as secretary of state, State Department officials said, and may have violated federal requirements that officials’ correspondence be retained as part of the agency’s record,” the New York Times reports. “Mrs. Clinton did not […]

Conservatives filing brief in favor of gay marriage

Right Turn has learned that an impressive array of Republicans and Gen. Stanley McChrystal will be filing an amicus brief on Friday in support of gay marriage with the Supreme Court in DeBoer v. Snyder. The case will decide, in the wake of cases striking down the Defense of Marriage Act, if states can restrict […]

Obama confirms worst fears

For  seven years critics of the president have claimed he is out to appease Iran, allowing it a nuclear-weapons capability and eventual entree into the nuclear weapons club. Liberals insisted this was Obama Derangement Syndrome. In fact Obama admitted in essence yesterday that his critics were right in an interview in which he declared, “If […]

A bipartisan warning in a letter to the president from the House Foreign Affairs Committee chairman and ranking member: “Should an agreement with Iran be reached, permanent sanctions relief from congressionally mandated sanctions would...Show More Summary

All in favor of no deal?

It seems inconceivable that the “P5+1? could get a deal from Iran of the type they started out trying to obtain and is required by U.N. resolutions. The goal, one can barely recall, was to deprive Iran from obtaining any recognition of the “right to enrich” — something that seems to have already been given […]

Walker is not on a collision course with any segment of the GOP

With all due respect to Byron York, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is not on a collision course with the “establishment” GOP. It is not an elites-only concern that “Walker needs to raise his game if he is going to play on the national stage.” It is a legitimate concern among Republicans who like Walker the […]

Benjamin Netanyahu at AIPAC

The greeting for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the annual AIPAC policy conference was loud and long. In a warm-up of sorts to the controversial speech tomorrow, Netanyahu did not want to use up his best lines, as it were. So he chose to do two things: damage control and put the world on notice. […]

The 2016 race shakes out

The Republican presidential campaign is five months from the first debate and 11 months from the first caucus, but the candidates serious about running are stepping out and revealing strengths and weaknesses. It is helpful to think of the candidates in groups. Polls are rather meaningless at this stage except insofar as they drive coverage […]

Ups and downs

UP: Hawks at CPAC DOWN: Isolationists at CPAC UP: Jeb Bush walking into the lion’s den DOWN: Walking out on a presidential candidate with whom one disagrees (at a university, if lefties walked out on a conservative, the right would be outraged) UP: Whoever decided questions should be asked of candidates at CPAC DOWN: Whoever […]
