Hillary Loses First Primary of 2016

Jacksonville -- Republicans scored a big win in Florida this week. Big, that is, for anybody interested in beating Hillary Clinton next year. You know the syllogism. Anybody who wants to beat Hillary in 2016 must win Florida and there are only two ways to win Florida – the Bush way and the Obama way. You can run up Republican margins in the north and pare down Democratic margins in the south. That’s how Bush won here in 2000 and 2004. Or you can run up Democratic margins in the south and pare down Republican margins in the north. That’s how Obama won in 2008 and 2012. In 2012, those pared-down GOP margins in north Florida played a big part ...

A Win for “We the People” in Maryland

On Saturday night it came to our attention that a group of Democrat activists were working to ban members of the We the People Caroll County Tea Party group from a public town hall for Rep. Chris Van Hollen who represents the 8th Congressional District in Maryland. It was reported that these Democrat activists were threatening to use law enforcement to ban the Tea Party group from the town hall under the accusation that they have displayed “violent tendencies.” Anyone who has been around the Tea Party and has seen it first-hand knows that this is an outrageous accusation – and one that would only be believed by people who get their news from ...

But with the endorsement comes other support such as money, access to party resources and manpower to help gather ballot petitions. Since ...

HEALTHCARE: Costs trouble Obamacare enrollees “More than one-third of Obamacare enrollees aren't happy with the extra out-of-pocket costs they must still pay for healthcare. Thirty-seven percent of respondents to a Kaiser Family Foundation poll released Thursday said they're "somewhat" or "very" dissatisfied with their plan's deductible — a set sum consumers must pay for some doctors visits or treatments before their insurer steps in. Those on plans that meet the new requirements under the Affordable Care Act were more likely to report problems with costs — like being unable to pay their medical bills or skipping doctors visits because of cost ...

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Tea Party Group Teams With ACLU, NAACP On Patriot Act “Growing concerns about the Patriot Act’s renewal are creating strange bedfellows. The Tea Party Patriots and the ACLU are running TV ads urging Americans to “tell Congress [to] protect our privacy.” On top of that, the executive director of Iowa’s ACLU and Tea Party Patriots’ boss Jenny Beth Martin have coauthored an op-ed in the Des Moines Register on “the need for significant reforms to curtail government surveillance authorities, like some of those included in the Patriot Act.” And even the NAACP — which hasn’t always been kind to the tea party movement ...
