    Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina says her campaign is in it for the long haul, and as such it’s not yet the right moment to begin a campaign ad blitz. “There will come a time for ads, but honestly, other candidates have already spent millions on ads and it’s done nothing for them. So I think the time is not yet,” she said Friday in South Carolina, according to the New York Times. Fiorina, the former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, says her focus right now is on earned media, particularly in debates. “Every time I get out on that debate stage,...

    Carly Fiorina criticized fellow GOP presidential contenders Ben Carson and Donald Trump for threatening to boycott CNBC's debate. “Well, I think apparently they’re worried about answering questions for three hours,” she told host Megyn Kelly on Fox News’ “The Kelly File” on Thursday night. “For heaven sakes, we have ten candidates on stage,” Fiorina said. "I don’t think three hours is a long time. “They also apparently asked for prepared statements,” she added of Carson and Trump. "You know, prepared statements are what politicians do. “So, honestly, here are two outsiders supposedly. Donald Trump and Ben Carson – they sound...

    Rick Perry may be out of the race for president, but the Republican field is still brimming with Texans. One of them is Carly Fiorina, who has surged into the top tier of candidates, behind only Donald Trump and Ben Carson in recent polls. Born Cara Carleton Sneed in Austin in September 1954 to Joseph Tyree Sneed III, a law professor at the University of Texas at Austin, and his wife, Madelon, her Texas residency was fleeting. She departed at age 2
  • Carly Fiorina Says Degree In Medieval History Will Help Her Defeat Isis

    For over three decades, Carly Fiorina's bachelor's degree from Stanford University in medieval history and philosophy has had little real-world application. But as she mounts a presidential bid, the Republican candidate says her degree is finally of use as she considers how she would deal with ISIS as commander-in-chief. "Finally my degree in medieval history and philosophy has come in handy," Fiorina said Sunday night, "because what ISIS wants to do is drive us back to the Middle Ages, literally." Fiorina was responding to a question from a member of the military at a town hall in Windham, New Hampshire,...

    Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina may not be a liberal, but she certainly appears to be a fan of the liberal arts. The 2016 contender said Monday that her college degree in medieval history made her uniquely qualified to combat ISIS and other terrorist groups. “My degree in medieval history and philosophy has come in handy,” Fiorina said at a town hall in Windham, N.H., “because what ISIS wants to do is drive us back to the Middle Ages, literally.”

    Carly Fiorina received a BA from Stanford in medieval history and philosophy almost 40 years ago, but she’s always ready to revisit her undergraduate glory days. Last Sunday, the Republican presidential candidate tried to burnish her national security credentials by claiming that her bachelor’s degree prepared her to fight Isis. She said: “Finally my degree in medieval history and philosophy has come in handy, because what Isis wants to do is drive us back to the Middle Ages, literally”. I’d like to state unequivocally that my years of training to become a professor of medieval history in no way make...
  • Michelle Obama made dusk visit to Great Mosque of Granada during Spanish trip [Built 2003]

    While President Barack Obama was “forcefully” endorsing the Ground Zero Mosque, Michelle Obama was paying homage with her presence to the Great Mosque at Granada, which overlooks what was once Islam’s most important outpost in Europe, the Alhambra palace in Granada. There is no doubt about the influence of the Great Mosque of Granada overlooking Alhambra. One Spanish guidebook states that the Alhambra is to Granada what St.Peter’s is to Rome or St. Mark’s Square to Venice. Michelle Obama and her nine-year-old daughter, Sasha, visited the Alhambra Mosque at dusk on the second day of her visit to Spain, one...

    <p>Back Again, After 500 Years A new mosque opens in Spain. Good news? Not necessarily.</p> <p>For the first time in six centuries the muezzin's cry echoed over Spanish Granada with the inauguration in that city of a new mosque last week. The call to prayer hadn't been heard in the old capital of Moorish civilization since the last Muslim king was expelled by Ferdinand and Isabella in 1492.</p>

    Granada, Spain – A dispenser of iced lemonade sits invitingly by the door of the newly whitewashed building — hospitality for summer visitors coming to the first mosque built in Granada in over 500 years. But looming over the freshly planted garden, seeming to quiver in the furnacelike heat, is another image: the Alhambra, a 14th-century Muslim fortress of red-tinted stone that is everything this mosque is not: ancient, battle-scarred, monumental. It seems at once a reminder of lost glories and a spur for their restoration. It may also inspire darker sentiments. For it was from the Alhambra's watchtower that...

    In the Shadows of Alhambra P.K. Abdul Ghafour • Arab News Staff JEDDAH, 17 August 2003 — After a delay of more than 500 years, Spanish Muslims have finally succeeded in once again building their own mosque in the shadow of the Alhambra, once the symbol of Islamic power in Europe. Last month, the country’s Muslim community celebrated the opening of the Granada Mosque which symbolizes the new dawn of Islam in Europe and the revival of Spain’s glorious Islamic heritage. Overlooking the historic Alhambra Palace, the beautiful redbrick building, with design references to the Cordoba Mosque as well as...
