  • National Review: Jeff Sessions Is a ‘Prostitute’ for Endorsing Donald Trump

    Breitbart ^ | March 1, 2016 | Matthew Boyle
    National Review, a once-venerable conservative publication, has officially gone off the rails entirely, publishing an article calling Sen. Jeff Sessions a “prostitute” for endorsing billionaire Donald Trump for the GOP presidential nomination. That abominable attack on perhaps the most revered conservative in the U.S. Senate ran in a National Review piece arguing that anyone who endorses Trump is a “rat” that is “scurrying” and is also a “sellout.”

    Donald Trump again claimed that Sen. Ted Cruz may not be a U.S. citizen, The Guardian reports. Said Trump: “He’s an anchor baby. Ted Cruz is an anchor baby in Canada, but Canada doesn’t accept anchor babies, they just waited a long time.” He added: “I think that’s one of the reasons he’s a nervous wreck. Now they’re saying, I think, his career is over, right? How about this, he’s a citizen of Canada and he’s a senator from Texas?”

    HUDSON, N.H. — Ted Cruz on Tuesday went further than ever in needling Donald Trump, suggesting Democrats are behind the billionaire's questions about his citizenship. Speaking with reporters after a rally here, the U.S. senator from Texas was asked what he thought of Trump citing Harvard law professor Laurence Tribe's analysis that Cruz might be ineligible to be president. Trump has pounced on Cruz's Canadian birth to cast doubt on whether he is a natural-born citizen.“I will say it is more than a little strange to see Donald relying on as authoritative a liberal, left-wing, judicial activist Harvard law professor who is a...

    McDonald's says some customers have complained that a talking toy included in recent Happy Meals uses curse words. The fast-food restaurant introduced a Happy Meal on July 3 with toys inspired by the movie "Minions." The Oak Brook, Illinois-based company issued a statement saying the sounds the small yellow figures make are nonsense words, nothing offensive or profane. It says that the Minion Caveman toy makes three sounds — "para la bukay," ''hahaha" and "eh eh." The statement says "a very small number of customers" have been in touch with the company about the toy. McDonald's said the promotion is...

He called his unit the day after he deserted to tell his unit he deserted… Bill, we lost 14 soldiers, killed, searching for a deserter. He left his unit in combat. It’s non-arguable… We don’t know yet if he joined the Taliban or not. But, there’s no question he deserted.

The two Allied leaders reviewed the war effort to date and exchanged thoughts on their plans for the postwar era. At one point in the discussion, FDR offered what he called "the best way to settle the Jewish question." Vice President Henry Wallace, who noted the conversation in his diary, said Roosevelt spoke approvingly of a plan (recommended by geographer and Johns Hopkins University President Isaiah Bowman)...

Financially the cost was about $17 million for Romney and his SuperPAC, almost entirely on negative ads. Of the $15 million in negative ads run by or for Romney, only one was positive, a radio ad in Spanish run only 15 times. Last night, Brit Hume described the win appropriately: “He beat Newt Gingrich by bombing him back into the stone age” with negative ads. Despite...

Instead, Obama simply has issued an internal policy not to deport illegal aliens other than those who have committed some other serious crime.

But Mrs. Obama chose to leave without him Saturday, taking their two children and the dog along with her.

In America, Abraham Lincoln entered the White House pledged to a revolutionary policy of excluding human bondage from the nation’s territories. The new machinery of freedom, though Anglo-American in design, was universal in scope. At its core was the idea, as yet imperfectly realized, that all human beings possess a fundamental dignity. This was a truth that, Abraham Lincoln believed, was “applicable...

    HILLARY DOES JESUS"FURTHER EVIDENCE WHY SHE IS ONE OF THE MOST DESPICABLE POLITICIANS OUT THERE RIGHT NOW"by Mia T, 3.26.06 From a Christian theologian: his is just further evidence of what, in my opinion, is why Hillary Clinton is one of the most despicable politicians that is out there right now in the sense that she's absolutely chameleonlike. When she is pandering to the Left, she wants nothing to do with religion. She sounds like the ACLU. When she's voting against [the banning of] partial-birth abortion, I don't see her invoking the name of Jesus there because I'm sure...

    Republican National Committee ^ | March 23, 2006 | Chairman Ken Mehlman
    From: Chairman Ken Mehlman Date: Mar 23, 2006 9:41 AM Subject: Impeachment? To: XXXXXXXXXX Dear Republican, The word is out. Their position is clear. Last week, Sen. Russ Feingold floated a reckless plan to censure the President, and some Democrat leaders have ecstatically jumped on Feingold's bandwagon. And, if they gain even more power in November, they won't stop there. Feingold says that censure actually represents "moderation" and calls the terrorist surveillance program an impeachable offense. Dick Durbin, the number two Democrat in the Senate, fails to rule out impeachment if Democrats retake Congress. Iowa Democrat Tom Harkin is talking...

    Political junkies are witnessing a true phenomenon in presidential politics: more than two years before the next presidential election cycle there's a movement to target someone considered by the news media and pundits to be a frontrunner in 2008 -- Hillary Rodham Clinton. Even with softball interviews by the likes of Katie Couric and Diane Sawyer, and with almost a daily practice by some members of the mainstream news media of publishing her press releases as if they were news, Hillary Clinton is facing tough opposition not only from Republicans but also from members of her own party. Right after...

    WASHINGTON Rep. John Murtha, a key Democratic voice who favors pulling U.S. troops from Iraq, said in remarks airing on Monday that he would not join the U.S. military today. A decorated Vietnam combat veteran who retired as a colonel after 37 years in the U.S. Marine Corps, Murtha told ABC News' "Nightline" program that Iraq "absolutely" was a wrong war for President George W. Bush to have launched. "Would you join (the military) today?," he was asked in an interview taped on Friday. "No," replied Murtha of Pennsylvania, the top Democrat on the House of Representatives subcommittee that oversees...

    Bush’s giant Right Wing Noise Machine (RWNM) loves to preach about the Bush economic miracle. In fact, the RWNM’s current thinking is Bush doesn’t spend enough time talking about his economic triumphs. If only he did, then everyone would fall in line and believe in the great Bush economic miracle. There is one problem with this argument: it’s a lie. Any way you look at the Bush economy, it comes up short. Today, I want to compare Bush’s job creation record with other economic recoveries. As usual, Bush comes up way short. The national Bureau of Economic Research has identified...

    A new low Americans are obviously split when it comes to rating the on-the-job performance of George W. Bush. The president, himself, acknowledges as much. But if there ever came a time when one stooped too low, it is now. "Demgurl" is the online pseudonym of a popular veteran contributor to the partisan Web site DemocraticUnderground.com. Last week, the Democrat disclosed that she was on her way home and encountered a minivan beside a freeway offramp. "There was a lady standing next to the van, and in her arms she held her child. I can only assume her minivan had...

    Associated Press Writer 1 hour, 31 minutes ago WASHINGTON - The Justice Department is edging into the Senate controversy over judicial nominees, writing key lawmakers after Democratic Leader Harry Reid publicly referred to an FBI file on one of President Bush's controversial appointees. "The letter expressed concern about recent remarks on the floor of the Senate which alluded to an FBI background investigation file provided by the Department of Justice to the Senate Judiciary Committee on a confidential basis in connection with a judicial nomination," a department official said Friday night. The official, who spoke only on condition of anonymity,...

    Posted on Wed, Jan. 19, 2005 U.S.: Bank intended to sway Street Prosecutors say Commerce Bank granted a loan to the then-mayoral candidate's son to gain influence. By Emilie Lounsberry, Marcia Gelbart and Craig R. McCoy Inquirer Staff Writers Commerce Bank officials arranged a loan for then-mayoral candidate John F. Street's son in an attempt to "influence" his father's actions, federal prosecutors said yesterday in a court filing. The New Jersey-based bank gave a $40,000 loan to the mayor's oldest son, Sharif Street, a Center City lawyer, in October 1999 - one month before Street was elected to his first...
