    Jeb Bush Denounces Donald Trump’s ‘Cheering Muslims’ Claim By Candace Smith ROCK HILL, SC — Nov 24, 2015, 10:20 PM ET As GOP candidate Donald Trump doubles down on claims that he saw Americans in New Jersey cheering on 9/11, his rival, Jeb Bush strongly denounced those comments today while campaigning in South Carolina. "I don’t recall that. There was no cheering on any -- it would have been television, it would have been recorded.”

    The surviving pilot of a Russian jet downed by Turkey has said there were no warnings before they were struck out of the sky, it's reported. Captain Konstantin Murakhtin told a Russian TV station that his plane was flying over Syrian territory and did not violate Turkish airspace. Speaking for the first time since the incident yesterday, the pilot said he knew the region like the back of his hand and "couldn't possibly have flown into Turkish airspace".

    On Tuesday evening, we took a close look at the circumstances surrounding Turkey's decision to shoot down a Russian Su-24 near the Syrian border. The incident was the most meaningful escalation in the conflict to date and marks the first time a Russian or Soviet plane has been downed by NATO since 1953. The pilots ejected, one of whom was shot in his parachute by FSA-affiliated Alwiya al-Ashar militiamen who subsequently celebrated over the body. About an hour later, the FSA's 1st Coastal Brigade used a US-made TOW to destroy a Russian search and rescue helicopter, killing one Russian marine....

But that’s exactly what happened, said Godino and her family, including her mother Lauren Kelly, and they said they are trying to sort out why it is that Godino was punished for her comment, and others were not punished for the threats. “They just...

Member of the Armenian delegation Tevan Poghosyan has informed NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg about the incident and addressed a letter to James Appathurai, the Secretary General's Special Representative for the Caucasus and Central Asia and hopes to receive a response early in November. ...

    CHANDLER - A pastor was hoping to start a community conversation on racial equality when he and his predominantly white congregation installed a sign supporting the Black Lives Matter movement outside their Chandler church. Among the first people they heard from were vandals, who altered and then stole the sign. "(Congregation members) were sad, but not resigned," said the Rev. Andy Burnette of the Valley Unitarian Universalists. "To see that it's still controversial to say black lives matter saddened some of those folks." A "Black Lives Matter" banner was hung in early November with more than 100 signatures from members...

    Obama always claims he found out about scandals from the "news". He only ramps up the fight against ISIS, when the media's reporting makes it obvious that the group is still a problem. So he has an obvious solution. If the media would just stop covering ISIS, it wouldn't be a problem. “The media needs to help in this,” he said, admitting that it has been a “difficult week,” with the threat posed by ISIS becoming a primary focus in the media. “One of the things that has to happen is how we report on this has to maintain perspective,...

They are becoming just as panicked about Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100%. Now a Super Pac run by a major Rubio supporter is attacking Ted Cruz for his vote to rein in the data collection efforts by the NSA. Some conservatives have wondered whether Ted Cruz’s support for the USA Freedom Act, which curtailed the National Security Agency’s ability to collect metadata from phone records in bulk, would...

    If you've seen news reports about suspicious state contracts or chemical waste pits or officials' text messages in the Waco biker shootout, you may notice a recurring theme: government records obtained through the Texas Public Information Act. Fortunately, our state’s public information law, created in the early 1970s, presumes government records are open unless a specific exemption in the law keeps the documents off-limits. The public has a right to know. That means all citizens - not only journalists - can access government records. "It's very easy," said award-winning reporter Melissa Correa of KRGV-TV in Weslaco, recently explaining her use...

    Putin: Downing Of Jet A 'Stab In The Back' International powers call for calm as the Russian leader warns Turkey downing one of its jets will have "serious consequences". The shooting down of a Russian jet by Turkey is a "stab in the back" committed by "accomplices of terrorists", Vladimir Putin has said. The Sukhoi Su-24 was warned 10 times before being downed near the Syrian border by two Turkish F16 jets for violating the country's airspace, according to the Turkish military. A Turkish official said two Russian planes approached the Turkish border and were warned before one of them...

    Turkey should be kicked out of NATO for downing the Russian jet near the Syrian border Tuesday because the country "is trying to establish their own Ottoman Empire again," retired Army Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely told Newsmax TV. "They're moving very much to the Islamic State — and they've been no help in supporting the opposition forces against Assad," Vallely said, referring to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, on "The Steve Malzberg Show" in an interview. "They've been hitting a lot of the Kurds, as you know, up north in Syria and the northern part of Iraq." Despite the downing of...

The Republican majority in the Louisiana House would prefer one its members in the top leadership role and passed a resolution to that effect during a meeting in the State Capitol. The 61 GOP representatives in the 105-member Louisiana House met for several hours behind closed doors to discuss how to handle the incoming administration of a Democratic Party governor.

    Canada remains committed to taking in 25,000 Syrian refugees but will only welcome 10,000 of them by year's end, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's government said Tuesday, according to AFP. The Liberal government, which had pledged to take in the full number of refugees this year, said another 15,000 would now arrive in 2016, by the end of February. The delay follows criticisms that Ottawa was moving too fast amid security concerns in the aftermath of deadly attacks in Paris. "Canadians have said do this right and if it takes a little longer to do it, then take the time," Immigration...

    The answer is less than 24 hours after he was elected. John Bel Edwards tried to run an issue free campaign for governor. Instead, he made the election about David Vitter’s character. While he was busy destroying a good man, Edwards didn’t really go into his vision for Louisiana. Despite his best efforts though, he made some promises to the state. One of them was to hold two special sessions this coming year to deal with structural budget crisis the state is in. Here’s John Bel Edwards making the case via some questions posed on social media.

She tweeted, "Every survivor of sexual assault deserves to be heard, believed, and supported." It was a case of Hillary believing that accusations of rape and sexual assault were distractions before she believed that they were serious. Of course, as many people who responded to her tweet pointed out, those accusations involved her husband, former President Bill Clinton. The names of the women whom Bill Clinton is said to have assaulted...

A third of respondents used social media to either research or look for a job. Relocating job hunting to the internet is an obvious outcome,...

    Mayor de Blasio said his son Dante has been active in protests over racial issues at Yale — and they both agree the school should drop the name of a prominent defender of slavery. Dante, a freshman, is assigned to Yale’s Calhoun College, named for John C. Calhoun, a U.S. vice president and South Carolina senator who vehemently backed slavery as a “positive good” for the nation. “He’s very concerned, and he certainly notes the fact that the college he’s in, Calhoun College, is named for someone it shouldn’t be named for,” de Blasio told reporters Monday. “ That’s quite...
  • Paul: U.S. should “absolutely not” monitor mosques, create Muslim database

    Calling Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump’s stance on the topic “disqualifying,” Kentucky U.S. Sen. Rand Paul said on CBS’s ‘Face the Nation’ Sunday that he opposed government surveillance at mosques and establishing databases to track Muslims. “Yes we should follow people who are a risk,” Paul said. “Should we talk to their neighbors and friends, should we talk to their imam? Sure, all of that is legitimate, but should we target mosques and have a database of Muslims? “Absolutely not, and I think that’s disqualifying for both Donald Trump and Marco Rubio to say that we’re going to close down...

    Donald Trump's interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC's This Week (above) is a great distillation of why covering the Republican frontrunner is proving so difficult for mainstream press outlets. On the one hand, he demands coverage. He's leading the race everywhere: nationally, in Iowa, in New Hampshire, in South Carolina. And with the exception of a brief surge for Ben Carson that's quickly dissipating, Trump has been leading consistently for more than three months. So outlets like ABC and shows like This Week would, naturally, like the longstanding GOP frontrunner to appear on their programs from time to time. It...

    A man, who just two years ago was the poster boy for the Far Left media attacking the U.S. government's No-Fly list as unfairly targeting Muslims, finds himself and several family members sitting in a Turkish prison -- arrested earlier this month near the Turkey-Syria border as members of an ISIS cell. It's a long way from 2013 when Saadiq Long's cause was being championed by MSNBC's Chris Hayes, Glenn Greenwald, and Mother Jones, and was being represented by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) terror front.

    You shouldn't trust Rubio. Senator Marco Rubio is running for president but he doesn't want you to know about his past views on guns. Take a note at this research on him opposing lawful gun owning. Rubio Favored Restrictions On Florida Gun Owners In His 2000 State House Race, Rubio Supported Waiting Periods On Gun Purchases. "'Background checks are necessary and the sale of guns at shows should be limited,' Garcia said. 'Furthermore, safety locks should be required. I am also against honoring the concealed weapons permits of other states in our state.' Rubio supports 'reasonable restrictions' including background checks...

    RT spoke to Jurgen Todenhofer, the first Western journalist who was allowed to enter territory controlled by the so-called Islamic State. A year ago, he spent 10 days among the terrorists, also visiting Raqqa, the capital of the self-proclaimed caliphate. To arrange the journey, Todenhofer held Skype discussions with Islamic State (formerly ISIS/ISIL) for six months before they agreed to his visit. Finally, the jihadists gave him official guarantee safety. It was in their interest to fulfill their promises that I would come back alive and I came back alive, he said.

    Canada will accept only whole families, lone women or children in its mass resettlement of Syrian refugees while unaccompanied men – considered a security risk – will be turned away. Since the Paris attacks launched by Syria-linked jihadis, a plan by the new prime minister, Justin Trudeau, to fast-track the intake of 25,000 refugees by year’s end has faced growing criticism in Canada. Details of the plan will be announced Tuesday but Canada’s ambassador to Jordan confirmed that refugees from camps in Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey will be flown to Canada from Jordan starting 1 December. Speaking in Jordan on...
  • I live in Jersey and Trump is right: Muslims DID celebrate on 9/11 in NJ...we saw it!

    It did happen, and I saw it. Donald Trump is telling the truth about Muslims celebrating in New Jersey on September 11, 2001. I drove with family members though Patterson, N.J. that morning, after the planes hit. It's not the kind of thing you forget. We witnessed people in traditional Muslim garb dancing, jumping, shouting and celebrating like their team had won the Super Bowl, just as Trump said. "I watched when the World Trade Center came tumbling down," Trump said Saturday. "And I watched in Jersey City, N.J., where thousands and thousands of people were cheering as that building...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Now, let's look at some of the headlines here in the Trump Stack because it's recent history repeating itself. How many times in the course of this campaign since Trump has announced have the Drive-By Media and the Republican establishment believed that they had him? I can't count the number of times Trump has said something or done something that media and the Republican Party have salivated. "That's it," they say, "that's it, he just stepped in it. No recovery from this," and yet he just keeps climbing. And he's continuing to climb in the polls, and...

    onald Trump is back in the lead in Iowa. According to a new CBS News poll, 30% of Republicans in the state now support him. Ben Carson, who was tied with Trump a month ago, has slipped to third. The terrorist attacks in Paris appear to be the reason. Conservatives are looking for candidates who show the knowledge, passion, and determination to destroy ISIS. Carson, a friendly, upright man, is not a conservative powerhouse, and his knowledge and moral clarity about foreign policy does not compare with the two candidates now ahead of him. Trump is not an expert either,...
