Note: This post is copied from the Dana Loesch Radio website as fair use, without further editorial comment from the poster. Other than the headline, that is. Because that’s the way I roll. I have no financial interest in this show or the Trump empire as it would force me to get out of my […]
Feel free to give it up in the comment boxes: So where did Trump’s gains come from? All over the place. On the graphs below, Trump’s is the largest, hugest, classiest, most luxurious dot. He picked up 15 points with people earning under $50,000 a year, 12 points with men, 13 points with evangelicals. No […]
Donald Trump appears to have gotten under the skin of not only Democrats, but also fellow Republicans and the news media. Has that subjected Trump, a Republican presidential candidate, to unfair and/or inaccurate reporting? An article in the Washington Post today is headlined, “Trump slams McCain for being ‘captured’ in Vietnam.” Preview Open

… he can’t tell troops from the American from troops from foreign military forces. Well, to be fair (to the Democrats) at least the photos they used were of Canadian soldiers, Turkish airplanes and Russian destroyers. Even the Democrats know that using photos of the Waffen SS was a bridge too far when it comes to showing […]

During the sleepy summer months other candidates have announced their runs, sometimes to acclaim and sometimes to silence, but Wisconsin’s governor has bided his time. He has plotted, planned, and stayed out of the spotlight while overseeing the approval of his state’s budget. Monday he finally announced, in a heartland-themed ceremony outside of Milwaukee.
Introduced by his wife Tonette, Walker took the stage sans teleprompter and ticked off one conservative priority after another. It was a serious, straightforward speech delivered from — and to — middle America. It wasn’t flashy, but with his record, Walker didn’t need it to be. Think Cal Coolidge if he ate brats and rooted for the Packers.
Walker has spent one-and-a-half terms tipping sacred cows and winning three elections amidst the most toxic leftist attacks imaginable. Riots in the streets, court-ordered harassment of his allies, and threats on his family weren’t enough to make him back down. This steel makes Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) very, very nervous. The official Twitter account of the DNC has shrieked all weekend over the unassuming executive’s entry into the race.

The flagship outlet of conservative thought National Review, no small portion of which is represented here on Ricochet, is filled with articles against and about the man and are virtually universal in condemnation of the candidate and anyone who would tell a pollster they’d vote for […]
Sanders’ solutions might be ill-conceived, but at least he’s talking about a problem that the incumbent, and the front-runner, are largely happy to ignore. And though, as an aged, openly Socialist, white male, he might not have been the dream candidate, Sanders draws enthusiastic crowds who are grateful that someone is speaking to their concerns. […]

Feel free to pick out your favorite highlights in the comments. Its common these days to dismiss modern politicians as practicing “soundbite” and “talking point” politics. When someone tries to speak more extemporaneously, they are dismissed by the New York Times as “rambling”. So, take a listen to the “rambling man”. And, then, note how […]
Free advice for all you bewildered political pundits, party chairmen, chairwomen and other associated delicate flowers who, apparently, have never been involved in a street fight and wouldn’t handle Benghazi any better than the former Secretary of Cattle Futures Trader in Chief: Windbags, blowhards, and hair today, paragon tomorrow candidates who can’t button their yaps […]
