    'They want a puppet that they can control, Donald will never be that person' Although Donald Trump has signed a pledge to support the Republican Party's nominee, that doesn't mean the party's establishment will support him, should he win the GOP presidential nod. A report by the Hill suggests the big money Republican donors are actually looking to support Hillary Clinton for commander in chief if Trump is at the top of the GOP ticket. Yes, the Democrat Hillary Clinton could be getting millions of dollars from Republicans. The website says: "In conversations over the past month, GOP establishment donors...

    n his way to visit Israel with his family, a Los Angeles businessman came upon 400 U.S. soldiers preparing to eat their paper sack dinners during a layover in Shannon, Ireland and decided he wanted to honor them with a good warm meal. As the regular passengers and friends were all dining at the various trendy restaurants, entrepreneur and philanthropist Shlomo Rechnitz approached the commander and told him that he wanted to treat the servicemen to the same. At first the commander said it was unnecessary, but Shlomo insisted, and the commander announced to all the soldiers that they could...

    Appearing on November 29th Fox News Sunday, 2016 Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina slammed President Barack Obama and his allies as “delusional” for continually pushing the notion that climate change is a chief national security threat for the United States and the world at-large.  Fiorina was asked about the issue by host Chris Wallace in context of this upcoming week’s United Nations climate change summit in Paris and the argument that addressing climate change makes the world safer and rebukes Islamic terrorists.

While seven have offered legitimate proposals, five have advanced theories, which are basically maniacal. Those proposing to abolish, or end, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) may be classified as crackpots, because, let's face it, that's never ever going to happen. With taxes of such fundamental concern, it's difficult to take anything else these kooks say seriously. Unless such candidates are willing...

Jacobs and her friend, Allie Westover, decided they were more interested in what the boys were doing. So last fall, they started participating in activities alongside a local Boy Scout troop.

In response to a series of “black-out” demonstrations last week at UCSB and college campuses nationwide calling for “solidarity with Mizzou” black students, the UCSB WSU decided to form its own antithetical “White Student Walk Out” calling for “solidarity” with white students. “Join us as we walk out of our classes at 12:30 PM to show solidarity for our brothers and sisters of European descent,” the Walk Out event description reads....

The tour–which Carson is taking so he can learn more about how to solve the refugee crisis by resettling Syrians throughout the Middle East, rather than bringing any refugees to the United States of America or placing more in Europe–means the world-leading neurosurgeon is the first 2016 GOP presidential candidate to tour refugee camps in Jordan. “I’m going to be visiting...

  • Plan A for GOP donors: Wait for Trump to fall. (There is no Plan B.)

    As the combative mogul enters his fifth month at the top of the GOP field, attempts to derail him remain anemic, underfunded and unfocused — and they are likely to stay that way until the Iowa caucuses in less than 10 weeks. Most of the party’s financiers and top strategists are sitting on the sidelines. Many are reluctant to spend money against Trump after watching others fumble as they tried to handle his counterpunches. Others, citing past elections, remain confident that the race will eventually pivot away from him early next year. -- “I’m not sure someone wouldn’t do better...

    With a world on edge after the coordinated terror attacks in Paris, and as criticism grows louder of the Obama administration’s handling of adversaries such as Iran and Syria, tough talk and defiance have become strong currencies in the presidential race. Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson’s mild-mannered, soft-spoken demeanor – which helped endear him to many voters in the first place – now appears to be working against him, while Sen. Ted Cruz’s tell-it-like-it-is, in-your-face style is now raising his stock.

The senators, led by Sens.

The letter said Democrats would keep trying to pass a gun bill, but said Obama should explore...

However, she said on CBS, "I don't think the approach is sufficient to the job." Feinstein said President Barack Obama's decision to send 50 special forces...

The conservative college news website The College Fixreported that the teach-in was “conspicuously” devoid of discussions of radical Islam, and instead “delved into topics such as how society’s notions of masculinity pressure men.” Mohammad, a freshman studying computer science at UC Merced, was found to have a printout image of the Islamic State flag alongside a handwritten manifesto with detailed...

Like everyone else, Fiorina took her shoes off as she went through the security line. No one approached her as she moved through the security check or after at the terminal's sole sit-down restaurant, Earl of Sandwich, where she ate. Her modest travel is a stark contrast as Donald Trump and Ben Carson obtain Secret Service.

    Donald Trump, the 2016 GOP frontrunner for president, lambasted Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 80% on Breitbart News Daily on SiriusXM Patriot Channel 125 on Thursday morning. "Marco Rubio is not equipped to do this job," Trump said. "Marco Rubio is a lightweight." The slam came during an exchange with host and Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon in which the men were bashing the so called "GOP smart set" a collection of Washington centric political consultants and GOP establishment favored pundits that think they're smarter than ordinary Americans, and use their public opinion leader positions to protect the Washington...

    Last week in an article titled "Ben Carson Reconsidered," destined for the November 16 print edition of The Weekly Standard, "conservative" pundit William Kristol shows just how willing he is to risk a Hillary Clinton presidency and all its concomitant damage. He's willing to risk such simply to prevent an outsider from ascending to that office. In a two (internet)-page article, Dr. Kristol excoriates Donald Trump while damning Dr. Ben Carson with faint praise. Here is his final statement: So while Carson probably won’t and likely shouldn’t be the nominee, the Republican party is better for his candidacy. And if...

    A social studies teacher at Spring View Middle School gave students an ode to Islam to sing, set to the tune of Rachel Platten‘s “Fight Song.” But instead, the chorus goes: This is their fight song Spread Islam now song Prove that they’re right song Other parts of the song declares that they “don’t really care if no Jews or [Christians] believe,” and “Islam… Allah’s on the way.” Parents were upset, to say the least. “I believe that by singing this song, the children feel comfortable believing that maybe Allah is the only god, and maybe that they should start...

    One Republican has joined eight Democrats in creating the first Transgender Equality Task Force in Congress. Created by the Congressional LGBT Equality Caucus and chaired by Rep. Mike Honda, D-CA, the task force held a hearing yesterday to discuss challenges, especially violence, that transgender advocates say are prevalent among transgendered Americans. According to the description below the Human Rights Campaign's video of the two-hour forum, the event consisted of two panels. The first was about "the lived experience of transgender victims and educating on the scope of violence experienced by transgender people." The second panel included "HRC President Chad Griffin...

    Amid heightened fears over terrorism, an Orange County teacher has found herself in trouble after ordering her class to sing a song about Islam. The teacher says she was trying to teach her seventh-grade class about the religion of Islam by using a catchy tune. Using the melody of the song “This Is My Fight Song,” the teacher applied custom lyrics, such as: “Like a sandstorm in the desert, sending camels into motion, like how a single faith can make a heart open, they might only have one god, but they can make an explosion.” The song was then presented...

    The Satanic Temple has a message for alienated U.S. Muslims: Let’s be friends. American satanists who recently tried to install a bronze Baphomet statue near a Ten Commandments monument in Oklahoma now want to ally with alienated Muslims. The organization’s offer comes less than one week after Islamic terror attacks in Paris, France, killed 129 and injured more than 350. “If there is anyone in the San Jose region who is Muslim and afraid to leave their home out of fear for some kind of backlash, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We would be glad to escort...

    The president of the UC Santa Cruz Jewish Student Union (JSU) was warned to abstain”from voting earlier this week on a pro-BDS resolution because he was “elected with a Jewish agenda.” JNS.org reports that the incident occurred prior to a vote by the council on an earlier Israel divestment bill.

In a text message sent to President Daniel Bernstein prior to that vote, the sender wrote, “You will be abstaining, as the president of...

  • Donald Trump Could Win the Republican Nomination in a Blowout

    Polling shows Trump to be dominant in New Hampshire, the first primary state of the nation. He's led every poll there since September, almost always by double digits and sometimes doubling or even tripling the support of his nearest rival. He edges Ben Carson in Iowa half a percentage point, according to the RealClearPolitics average of polls taken there in the last month--statistically insignificant, but evidence that a Trump victory in the nation's first caucus can't be ruled out--and could likely be followed by a blowout victory in New Hampshire. "Trump's got an organization in place," Tyler DeHaan, the chairman...
