  • Trump: I support Putin 'bombing the hell' out of ISIS

    Washington Examiner ^ | 10/4/15 | Al Weaver
    Donald Trump does not trust Russian President Vladimir Putin, but he is supportive of one thing Putin is doing on the world stage. During an interview with "Meet The Press" Sunday, Trump told moderator Chuck Todd that he supports Putin going out and "bombing the hell" out of the Islamic State in Syria, despite that they are doing so to support Syrian President Bashir al-Assad. "I like that Putin is bombing the hell out of ISIS, and it's going to be ISIS. I'll tell you why — Putin has to get rid of ISIS because Putin doesn't want ISIS coming...

    City-parish president candidates Joel Robideaux and Dee Stanley navigated questions on coal-generated power, the disruption an elevated interstate might cause in Lafayette and whether the city has too many traffic signals — all posed at a Thursday evening forum sponsored by the local chapter of the Sierra Club. In a campaign season where the candidates have often found themselves repeatedly addressing the same issues in the string of debates and forums leading up to the Oct. 24 election, Stanley and Robideaux covered some new ground at the environmental group’s forum at the Lafayette Public Library downtown. Robideaux, a longtime state...

    In a Shift, Republicans Now Prefer ‘New Ideas’ to ‘Experience’ GOP Voters Now Prefer 'New Ideas' to Experience; Democrats are DividedWith four months to go before the first presidential nomination contests, Republican and Democratic voters have sharply different perspectives on their parties’ campaigns – from the qualities they value in candidates to the assessments of their presidential fields and the issues they prioritize.

Christian Pastor David Jeremiah along with television evangelist Jan Crouch, Pastor Darrell Scott, and Jews for Jesus Rabbi Kirt Schneider. While candidates have been open about sharing their faith in recent decades, true Christians act as Christians at all times… even when no one is watching. The two and a half hour meeting about faith was constructive, and all reports are that Trump asked the Lord for wisdom and...

    self-published | Sept 30, 2015 | Peter O'Donnell
    What is the fundamental reason to select Senator Ted Cruz over a field of other candidates for the Republican presidential candidate? The answer lies in the constitution -- not in some part of the document, but in the IMPORTANCE of the document. Senator Cruz has established that he understands this fundamental fact, and relies on it more than any other candidate. And he has the experience and educational background to make that understanding more effectual. Why is the Constitution so particularly important in this presidential election? Was it not always equally important? It is more important because America, like many...

    Progressive pundits increasingly envision the 2016 presidential election as a “last chance,” as one activist phrased it, to stop “climate change catastrophe.” As this agenda gets ever more radical, the prominence of climate change in the election will grow ever more obvious. The key here is that the green left increasingly does not want to limit or change the mix of fossil fuels, but eliminate them entirely, the faster the better. ...

    It’s been exactly two years since the closure of access lanes to the George Washington Bridge in New Jersey caused a traffic apocalypse – and Governor Chris Christie still seems stuck in the jam it created. After costing the jobs of multiple state functionaries, the ever-expanding scandal – inevitably nicknamed Bridgegate – claimed its biggest scalp so far on Tuesday, with the resignation of the CEO of United Airlines. The United executive, Jeff Smisek, had nothing to do with the lane closures. Instead he was caught up in a federal investigation the scandal kicked off into the dealings of the...

    Donald Trump has a better shot at the presidency than Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)80% and is just as likely to win the 2016 election as Jeb Bush, say two embarrassed political scientists. We know they’re embarrassed by their discovery because their Washington Post article buried that news far, far into their math-heavy, thumb-sucking, 20-paragraph, Sept. 25 perambulation. In their article, the two academics first did some tricks with numbers, multiplied some percentages, added a few assumptions — and then subtracted their interesting conclusion from the lede. Weird — why would they subtract their conclusion? Because they concluded that Donald Trump...

Because the one thing in which Trump is consistent is his vagueness, it is not 100 percent clear whether what he is talking about is the so-called carried-interest loophole, which is very much on the minds of people with economic-policy views similar to Trump’s — meaning Bernie Sanders and Hillary Rodham Clinton and other cookie-cutter progressives...

The only current threat to Trump was Ben Carson. Does anyone think that Carson gained last night? How about a show of hands, who thought he lost some? Carson's poll numbers will drop this week.

    Most people don't know what a socialist is. Socialist sounds too much like "social." A socialist, I suspect, for most Americans means to be "social." Who could be opposed to that? Bernie Sanders is a Socialist. In reality, he's a theft using the respectability of the United States Senate as cover for his criminal views. Like all socialists, Sanders believes it's OK to steal from people if he can get enough votes and enough support from the people he will be stealing for -- the beneficiaries of his thieving ways. Of course, Sanders isn't the only socialist in Congress. Most...

    I'm am so SICK and TIRED of being told by the GOP and the 'conservative talking heads' that I'm stupid, emotional, 'baffled', not thinking straight, having a 'tantrum', am racist, or some other ((insert insult here)) for choosing to support Trump as my candidate! The people who I have voted for, the people who *I* helped put in office, now dare to insult my choice today?! They didn't seem to have one problem with my ability to rationalize when I was sending them money and pulling the lever for *them*. Why is my judgement now questionable? The talking heads who...

    "Paul later told me he thinks he has found an approach that will separate Trump from the rest of the GOP field: eminent domain. “A hallmark of Republicans is that they respect private property. But Trump runs roughshod over it,” he said. “He is a serious abuser of taking property for his private benefit.”

    adical leftwinger Jeremy Corbyn on Saturday won the crown of Britain's main opposition Labour party in a landslide victory, becoming the nation's most left-wing political leader for over 30 years. The 66-year-old socialist, whose policies have been compared to those of Greece's Syriza and Spain's Podemos, was named leader after clinching 59.5 percent of the 422,664 votes cast by Labour party members and supporters. The newly-elected leader condemned "grotesque levels of inequality" and "an unfair welfare system" in his victory speech to party members in central London. The veteran campaigner also called for Britain's Conservative government to show more "compassion"...

    Hillary Clinton's Iowa edge is gone. Bernie Sanders leads the former secretary of state for the first time among Iowa Democrats likely to caucus in February, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll unveiled Thursday morning — the latest in a string of surveys that show a tightening race in the Hawkeye State. The Vermont senator's advantage is within the margin of error — he took 41 percent compared with Clinton's 40 percent — and another 12 percent said they would support Vice President Joe Biden, who has yet to declare his 2016 intentions. (Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley picked...
