Your Tax Dollars at Work: Abandoned Quadriplegics in VA Hospitals

nationalreview.com — Higgins said the patients are left alone for about an hour each evening during a staff meeting that is attended by all hospital staff. Higgins said this contradicts hospital policy, and that even during such meetings, at least one nurse is supposed to be at the nurses' station.

The Morning Jolt

nationalreview.com — For those who think I never write anything nice about Donald Trump . . . boy, it's just delicious to watch him respond to Jorge Ramos, a Univision reporter who hadn't yet been called upon, but who decided to stand up and harangue Trump at an event in Iowa Tuesday night.

New Polling: Biden's a Stronger Candidate than Hillary

nationalreview.com — According to a Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday, if Biden was the Democratic candidate, he would beat Donald Trump by eight points (48 - 40 percent), former Florida Governor Jeb Bush by six points (45 - 39) and Senator Marco Rubio by three points (44 - 41).

The Virginia Shooting Video, Awful As It Is, Shows the Truth.

nationalreview.com — Charlie argues against repeated showing or viewing of the video of this morning's shooting. I can understand choosing to not watch it, and networks that do choose to show it should give viewers plenty of warning. (There's a special place in Hell for any news web site that puts that particular video on auto-play for anyone who visits the site.)

Joe Biden Presidential Campaign Would Be Bad News for GOP

nationalreview.com — Picture the day Vice President Joe Biden wins the Democratic nomination for president in 2016. Suddenly, the classified information Hillary Clinton stored on a private, insecure e-mail server is just grist for a juicy FBI investigation - not a defining issue in the presidential race.

Scott Walker's Chinese Flag Lapel Pin

nationalreview.com — Walker can semi-plausibly argue that the hostility of the Chinese government is even clearer now, and that their hack of the OPM records represents an intolerable provocation that warrants withdrawing the invitation. Most people understand that when a governor goes on a "trade mission," he's there to tout his home state, generate interest among investors and maybe sell a few Harley Davidson motorcycle - not to negotiate U.S.

President Obama's Strange Definition of 'Rent-Seeking'

nationalreview.com — When Obama says the Koch brothers are trying to "prevent new clean energy businesses from succeeding," he means they think that the solar investment tax credit should phase out as scheduled. The federal income tax credit is worth 30 percent of the entire installed solar system, and is scheduled to expire at the end of 2016; then it shrinks to 10 percent and only applies to commercial properties.

Ramos Makes the Immigration Debate Angry and Bitter, Too.

nationalreview.com — Between Charlie's words below and today's Morning Jolt, Donald Trump fans must feel like it's Christmas! Ramos Makes the Immigration Debate Angry and Bitter, Too. For those who think I never write anything nice about Donald Trump...

Ramos routinely uses the term “anti-immigrant” to describe illegal immigration foes. bit.ly/1JlNiC3

Ramos’ disregard for waiting his turn is a metaphor for the disregard for the law he backs. bit.ly/1JlNiC3

Trump's War With Megyn Kelly Starts Up Again

nationalreview.com — Roger Ailes issued a statement, declaring that Trump's "surprise and unprovoked" attack was "unacceptable" and "disturbing." Note that the only thing Kelly did last night... was return to the airwaves. As Baier noted, it's been nearly three weeks since the debate, and Trump is still clearly angry about her.

Why Is Trump Tweeting at Megyn Kelly Again?

nationalreview.com — Trump's instinctive combativeness - whether you find it obnoxious or merely "politically incorrect" - provides constant fodder for this never-ending hunger for perpetual drama. ( Alex Pappas reports on a Frank Luntz focus group of Trump supporters that see nothing in his past or behavior that bothers them.)
