2016 Presidential Election

Ted Cruz: Crazy Like a Fox and Waiting to Inherit

Richard Brodsky | Posted 11.30.2015 | Politics
Richard Brodsky

Ted Cruz is an outsider in insider's clothing, and voters uneasy with the weirdness of Trumson are starting to move in his direction. And there may not be enough other Republicans to beat a candidate who captures the bulk of the raging outsider vote.

Yet again, the GOP leadership is hoping, perhaps even anticipating, that the voters will move away from erratic, outsider frontrunners like Donald Trump and Ben Carson.

Would the result have been different had Turkey not chosen to shoot down a Russian plane which may have veered momentarily -- and this in the Turkish version, mind you -- into its territory? We'll never know.

Claiming Power, Creating the Future

Terrorism has grown exponentially, all thanks to our efforts, while the military-industrial politicians of America still call for more of the same, more bombs, more drone strikes, more killing of insurgents -- some force has to emerge that can seriously challenge the war consensus.

Refugee Hysteria Is the Wrong Response to the Paris Attacks

Hauling up the drawbridge to the refugees is not going to stop Daesh from threatening America or change the government in Syria. Nor will it create a safer place for Americans. Instead this proclivity for panic will only heighten suspicions of the alien other (in this case, Muslim and Middle Eastern).

Anyone who understands political math knows that The Donald will never win the Republican nomination, let alone the presidency. And no one knows this more than Trump himself. Which is why, after he's done teasing, manipulating and exploiting you, he will break your hearts and abandon you.

Mr. Paul asked the Florida Senator -- who is becoming the candidate of the GOP establishment -- "How is that conservative?" Senator Paul's question has relevance for many of the candidates in this race.

'The Brain Surgeon'

Barry Levinson | Posted 11.23.2015 | Politics
Barry Levinson

I am trying to understand Dr. Ben Carson's political appeal. I don't understand it. He has never said anything that would make me immediately say, "This man must be our next president." To be honest, I've never heard anyone say, "His policies line up with my thinking." He certainly isn't a compelling speaker, certainly not a charismatic man. So what is it?

Rabbi Joshua Stanton

The idea of creating a national registry of all Muslims living in the United States is egregiously wrong and almost certainly unconstitutional. It is actually such an abysmal idea that it seems farcical - except that it's not funny at all.
