    With apologies to Islander7, but I haven't seen an ďOccasional Birdy ThreadĒ in awhile, so I thought that I would post one. My pictures aren't as great as those posted by Islander7 or fidelis, but it's kind of like singing. All that you really need to do is to sing (or take bird pictures) well enough to entertain yourself.

    CASPER, Wyo. (Reuters) - Republican U.S. presidential hopeful Ted Cruz is expected to win most of the 14 delegates up for grabs on Saturday in Wyoming, likely besting rival Donald Trump, who made little effort to win the rural state, and further narrowing the gap in the race for the party's nomination. Cruz is trying to prevent Trump from obtaining the 1,237 delegates needed to secure the Republican nomination at the July convention in Cleveland. By continuing to rack up small wins, Cruz is gaining ground on the New York real estate mogul, who has thus far failed to shift...

    Increasingly, Iíve had people ask me, both in person and in writing (via Facebook, primarily), what I will do if faced with a decision between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in the general election. That question deserves a sober answer, and I will do my best today to achieve that. What I say wonít convince everyone, but it will be an honest response. In the manner of good writing, as I teach my students, I begin with my thesis: I will never vote for either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump in a general election. That stance will obviously raise genuine...

    Thanks for standing with me all of these years. Your steadfast support and commitment to fighting important conservative battles has meant so much to Karen and me. As you may have heard, I announced tonight that I will be ending my Presidential campaign. While the results were not what we had hoped, the experience of running for President was tremendously gratifying and something I won't soon forget. And as Karen and I discussed leaving the Presidential race, we also talked about who we should support now that I am stepping aside. There are many qualified, conservative candidates in the race...

He has had the courage of his convictions. He's taken the arrows from the left perhaps more than...

    Rick Santorum has been saying the same things for 20 years on immigration, abortion, taxes, marriage, and every other issue; his is a record you can trust. Rick Santorum, the 2012 Iowa caucus winner, may be languishing in the polls, but he remains undaunted. While most of the GOP presidential candidates were hunkered down on Thursday doing debate preparation, the former Pennsylvania senator was still working the state hard. Santorum became a household name in Iowa in 2012 when he visited all 99 counties. He wowed social conservatives and still does with his unwavering conservative stances on social issues.(snip) He...

    Frontrunner Donald Trump invited fellow GOP presidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum to attend his fundraiser for veterans, after the two expressed interest in attending to support a good cause. Trump even brought them on stage with him to discuss issues involving veterans. Trump said he had got to know both Huckabee and Santorum "on the trail, as they say." "We have Mike Huckabee sitting right here." Trump said to the crowd asking Huckabee to stand, adding he's a "great guy." "Where's Rick?" Trump then questioned. "Come up here for a second." Trump then pointed to Mrs. Huckabee and...

    Moderator Martha MacCallum twisted facts during the GOP undercard debate in Iowa when she turned to pro-life former Sen. Rick Santorum and asked, "Carly Fiorina was the only one of the GOP candidates to attend the March for Life in Washington last week. Where were you?" The premise of MacCallum's question was deceptive, at best. As Breitbart News reported, Fiorina was the only GOP presidential candidate invited to speak at the March for Life on January 22. The committee that organizes the march set the theme of "Pro-Life, Pro-Woman Go Hand-in-Hand" as a way to counter the "war on women"...

    Four years ago, the Iowa caucuses were very, very good to former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum. In a race where seemingly every Republican candidate took a turn at the head of the polls, Santorum peaked at just the right time. He won a razor-thin race in Iowa, proclaimed "game on" to a caucus-night crowd, and went on to be 2012's GOP runner-up. Things are different this time for the 2012 caucus victor With poll numbers low and consistent relegation to undercard debates, Santorum often finds himself justifying his campaign's continued existence. "People say, why are you still doing this?" Santorum...

Santorum talked about a number off issues in his 17-minute interview with the KCWI morning team, but when Meteorologist Jason Parkin asked what differentiates him from Texas Senator Ted Cruz, Santorum explained it was his view on marriage. "Marriage is probably the big thing. Ted has the position that states can do whatever they want with marriage," Santorum stated. "I don't believe that's true. Abraham Lincoln said that states don't have the right to do wrong. Santorum went on to explain his position in depth. I would offer...

    In the debate over Ted Cruz's stand that the issue of the sanctity of marriage should be strictly left up to the states, those who favor a Federal Marriage Amendment such as Governor Mike Huckabee and Senator Rick Santorum are accused of wanting to trample on states rights. The truth is neither of these gentlemen is opposed to federalism. Federalism is a great heritage of our nation. It allows different states to operate according to the dictates of each state's citizenry. Take the issue of gambling. My home state of Idaho forbids casinos but allows the lottery while our neighboring...

    With just two major Republican debates remaining before the Iowa presidential caucuses, Donald Trump has been remarkably lucky. The only major candidate who could actually inflict lasting harm on the vulgar poster child for inherited wealth, and the only one who could readily attract and hold some of Trump's blue collar constituency, is the only one banished - by the idiotic, poll-driven debate rules to which the feckless Republican National Committee acquiesced - from sharing a single stage with The Donald. For reasons both stylistic and substantive, Pennsylvania's former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum could eviscerate Trump in a direct encounter....

    The quest for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination has turned into a race with three big lanes - establishment voters and social conservatives, plus Donald Trump's coalition of blue collar GOP voters. In setting the stage for a possible three-candidate showdown for the GOP nomination, this split bodes particularly well for social conservatives, who staged strong but ultimately failed runs in past two-way races. There's a lot to be said for driving in the social conservative lane. That candidate gets a well-defined base of voters that's been there before and that turns out. Consider the last few Republican presidential fights...

    If you only watch one heart-warming, warm-and-fuzzy, inspirational, feel-good holiday movie this season, make it this one. Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors airs at 8 p.m. today on NBC and continues the tradition established by such country-themed bio-pics as Walk the Line (Johnny Cash) and Coal Miner's Daughter (Loretta Lynn). Whereas those films took a broader perspective on the lives of their country legends, this offering concentrates on a seminal period in young Dolly's life -- her hardscrabble but loving childhood in rural Tennessee that inspired the famous hit song from which the movie takes it name.

    Frank Luntz, the moderator of the Presidential Family Forum on Friday night, asked former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA) if there was ever a time he cursed God. I was surprised by the question because I thought it was deeply personal, and not exactly an aspect of one's life that a candidate would want to put on full display. Santorum gave a graceful answer to that question that I found very encouraging and inspiring. It also sheds light into the depth of his character. Here's a transcript:

Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum, both former Iowa caucus winners, just don't have it this time around, and thus, they should take the cue and get out of the Republican race for president. In the poll-driven presidential campaign that has also been overly nationalized, I completely understand why this sort of thinking is prevalent in Iowa less than three months before people will head out to caucus. While the size of the Republican field has been reduced, it's still large and cumbersome. And after watching...

    The head of Numbers USA says the Republican presidential candidate who's the strongest proponent of immigration enforcement may not be on the debate stage this week. When you listen to Rick Santorum versus the other candidates, says Roy Beck, "you want to say, Why are these other candidates not standing for the American worker and the American family?" While Donald Trump has made headlines by for pushing stronger border enforcement, it's Rick Santorum who has the highest marks at Numbers USA. In fact, the former Pennsylvania senator is the only presidential candidate of either party to score an "A" on...

    Pandering Is Hard. Suffice it to say the Wisconsin governor and 2016 hopeful has a hard time explaining his views on the subject. Itís safe to say LGBT issues are not Scott Walkerís favorite conversation topic. Questions about various aspects of the gay rights debate have frequently tripped him up on the campaign trail - most recently during an interview on CNN when he was asked whether being gay was a choice. ďOh, I mean, I think thatís -- thatís not even an issue for me to be involved in,Ē the Wisconsin governor said. ďThe bottom line is, Iím going...

    Businessman Donald Trump surged into the lead for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, with almost twice the support of his closest rival, just as he ignited a new controversy after making disparaging remarks about Sen. John McCainís Vietnam War service, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll. Support for Trump fell sharply on the one night that voters were surveyed following those comments. Telephone interviewing for the poll began Thursday, and most calls were completed before the news about the remarks was widely reported. Although the sample size for the final day was small, the decline was statistically significant....

    The latest Monmouth University Poll of Republican voters nationwide found significant bumps, both in the vote choice question and candidate favorability, for Jeb Bush and Donald Trump since they threw their hats into the rings. Bobby Jindal has made no headway since he entered the race, and Chris Christie may actually be losing ground since his announcement. Despite Trumpís surge, the poll also found that many GOP voters are not taking his candidacy seriously. When Republicans are asked who they would support for the GOP nomination for president, Jeb Bush nominally leads the pack with 15%, followed by Donald Trump...

    Presidential contender Bobby Jindal will deliver the keynote address Thursday at the National Right to Life Convention in New Orleans. According to a press release containing some of Jindalís prepared remarks, the Republican governor of Louisiana Ė which has been named as the most pro-life state in the nation Ė will blast the Republican Party ďsmart guysĒ for failing to adhere to a commitment to pro-life policies, portraying the pro-life base, instead, as a ďdistraction.Ē ďThe Republican smart guys in Washington see cultural issues such as protecting life as a side issue and a distraction,Ē Jindal plans to say. ďThey...

    Behind every great man, thereís an incredibly astonished woman. And if youíre a Republican politician, the odds are pretty good sheís not on board with everything in your agenda. Along those lines, social conservatives have a new reason to worry about Scott Walker: Tonette Walker. In an interview with the Washington Post, Wisconsinís first lady publicly distanced herself from her husband over the issue of gay marriage. What is more, itís clear that Scott Walkerís views are out of step with his entire family on the issue.

    Rick Santorum said he didn't like Donald Trump's "verbiage" when he called Mexican immigrants "rapists" in his presidential announcement speech, but said he was raising an important point by bringing up the effect that illegal immigration has on American workers. "While I don't like the verbiage he's used, I like the fact that he is focused on a very important issue for American workers and particularly, legal immigrants in this country," Santorum, the former Pennsylvania senator and presidential candidate said on CBS' "Face the Nation" Sunday. "People who are coming illegally, obviously, are coming with a bad intent, let's just...

    For many opponents of same-sex marriage, the fight has just started. While supporters of marriage equality celebrate the supreme courtís historic decision in Obergefell v Hodges, advocates for traditional marriage have redoubled their efforts to influence policymakers. But the fight takes place in an unfamiliar political landscape, one where gay marriage has become the law of the land and one of the traditional benchmarks of the social conservative cause has been rendered meaningless. No matter how ardently Republican candidates for president in 2016 proclaim that they believe marriage is between one man and one woman, the supreme court has ruled...

    WASHINGTON ó Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum admonished his competitors Thursday for their reactions to the Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex marriage, saying as president he would fight to repeal the ruling and implement a law protecting religious freedoms enshrined in the First Amendment. ďMany are moving on,Ē Santorum said of Republican reactions to the court ruling. ďWell, not me. This will not stand.Ē The former Pennsylvania senator gave the keynote speech at a gala for the National Organization for Marriage Ė a conservative organization that defines marriage as between a man and a woman Ė Thursday in Washington.
