    "I think what I'd do, as president, is I would make a phone call to whoever, to the group," he said, adding later, "I'd talk to the leader. I would talk to him and I would say, 'You gotta get out -- come see me, but you gotta get out.'" "You cannot let people take over federal property," Mr. Trump said. "You can't, because once you do that, you don't have a government anymore. I think, frankly, they've been there too long." Mr. Trump said he wasn't necessarily suggesting a large-scale military action, but that "at a certain point you...

    Pontiff's show of solidarity during visit to Mexico Pope Francis, who has spent the past several months pressing nations, including America, to embrace those fleeing the unrest in the Middle East, Africa and Asia with open arms - and open borders - is now taking that stance to a new political level and planning a solidarity stand with migrants along the U.S.-Mexico boundary. Market Watch reported Francis is due to arrive in Mexico on Friday for a six-day visit. And as part of that visit, he is planning to stand on the U.S. border, in Ciudad Juarez, and deliver a...

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | February 10, 2016 | Morgan Chalfant
    Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) directed President Obama to "stop protecting China" in order to more effectively respond to hostile actions from North Korea. Cruz, a presidential candidate, penned the letter to Obama Wednesday to express concern with his policy of "strategic patience" toward North Korea. Earlier, the Texas senator announced that he would vote in favor of legislation that would impose nuclear weapons-related sanctions in North Korea, which is expected to gain passage in the Senate. Cruz outlined several means of more effectively responding to aggressive actions from North Korea, which over the weekend launched a long-range rocket and...

    The big story coming out of New Hampshire, arguably: Ted Cruz finishing third with a financial outlay of just $580,000, which easily was the best ROI for votes for any candidate in either primary. Cruz, dismissed by the media after his Iowa victory, and his third-place finish in New Hampshire, is in the game for the duration. In a Wednesday conversation in Jacksonville with his campaign chairman, Chad Sweet, a wide range of topics came up. Among them: Cruz's strategy for Florida; how he intends to dislodge Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio, the Sunshine State's favorite suns; campaign strategy more...

    t takes a village to raise a child. Children are being raised in many Arab villages to hate from birth with the ultimate aim and honour of being a shahid – a martyr - if they kill Jews. Their schoolbooks and their media bring them up to believe this. Their teachers, their parents and their whole villages dance and celebrate when Jews are murdered by their own teenagers. It is no accident that their young people are murdering Jews. All efforts to stop this have not worked. The left has failed miserably in its integration efforts. Politicians are afraid of...

    Police have released footage showing the moment an Arab terrorist stabbed and seriously wounded an Israeli jogger in Gush Etzion, and then fled from the scene. His victim, a Jewish man in his 30s, had been running outside the town of Neve Daniel when he was stabbed and seriously injured. He managed to reach the gate of the town, where security guards called an ambulance and initiated a manhunt. Following the attack, security forces closed off the Arab village of Nahalin, where the attacker is believed to have come from and fled to, as part of efforts to track him...

    There’s an article this week over at The Last Refuge which might be worth a look if you’ve got an open mind on the subject. One of the less commented on aspects of international relations with Mexico is the volume of cash which Mexicans living in America (including illegal aliens) send home every year to their families. There’s nothing shocking about the idea at first glance. People send money home all the time. But just how much is it? This report straight out of Mexico may come as a bit of a shock.

    ... There is no other way to describe it: the Obama policy is to let the Russian/Iranian/Hezbollah axis take over Syria. That is what the current battle for Aleppo is all about. Times columnist Roger Cohen argues that "It is too late, as well as pure illusion, to expect significant change in Obama's Syria policy." But he proposes that Obama should at least increase the number of Syrian refugees taken in this year to 65,000, as opposed to his currently proposed 10,000. But letting in more refugees scares Americans who suspect that there will be terrorists among them. Such a...
  • Mandla Mandela Is a Muslim, With a New Bride, and it’s Kind of a Big Deal (Grandson of Nelson)

    Mandla Mandela, grandson of uTata Nelson Mandela, has made waves after marrying for the fourth time, this time to a Capetonian Muslim woman. And that too, after reportedly converting to Islam two months ago. But there seems to be quite a bit of curiosity about what his new religious affiliation means for his role as tribal leader. Mandela, whose full name is Nkosi Zwelivelile 'Mandla' Mandela, is the chief of the Xhosa tribe which the Mandelas are a part of, the Mveso Traditional Council. He released a statement late on Sunday saying that he was 'honoured and delighted' to announce...

    Carly Fiorina is exiting the Republican presidential race after a seventh-place showing in last night's New Hampshire primary. "While I suspend my candidacy today, I will continue to travel this country and fight for those Americans who refuse to settle for the way things are and a status quo that no longer works for them," said Fiorina in a statement. Fiorina was an unconventional candidate. Her only previous political effort had been a 10-point loss in a race for U.S. Senate in California, and her tenure at Hewlett-Packard was most notable for her being fired by the board of directors...

    The Daily Caller ^ | February 10, 2016 | Derek Hunter
    Though Bernie Sanders won the New Hampshire primary in a landslide over Hillary Clinton, he will likely receive fewer delegates than she will. Sanders won 60 percent of the vote, but thanks to the Democratic Party's nominating system, he leaves the Granite State with at least 13 delegates while she leaves with at least 15 delegates. New Hampshire has 24 "pledged" delegates, which are allotted based on the popular vote. Sanders has 13, and Clinton has 9, with 2 currently allotted to neither. But under Democratic National Committee rules, New Hampshire also has 8 "superdelegates," party officials who are free...

    Our judicial branch of government is irrevocably broken, even more so than the other two branches.

They have usurped power beyond the imagination of our Founders, even those who were skeptical of Article III. Worse, they refuse to use the Constitution as originally conceived as the guideline for determining the constitutionality of laws. Finally, even when applying the Constitution or statutes to relevant cases, they are incapable of divorcing their political views from legal arguments. ...overturning Obama's executive amnesty is the quintessential...

The attacks come as Hillary Clinton faces a defeat — perhaps a heavy one — in the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday, according to opinion polls.

    Bangkok-based Buddhist monk Maha Aphichat is among a growing group of Thai monks who feel their religion is under threat from Islam.Anti-Islamic sentiment is brewing in Thailand, spurred-on by Buddhist monks who feel that their religion is under threat from Islam. This fear mongering has been exacerbated by the ongoing political conflict within Thai Buddhism, the 12-year-old armed-insurgency in Thailand’s deep south, and the growing influence of Buddhist radicals in neighboring Myanmar. Bangkok-based Buddhist monk Maha Aphichat is unafraid of speaking his mind. The 30-year-old gained notoriety last October, after he urged Thai Buddhists on social media to burn down...

    After the ridiculously close squeaker in the Iowa caucuses, the state's Democratic Party said it couldn't release the raw vote totals for Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. That simply isn't how they do business, party officials insisted. Even after they audited the results this week, Iowa Democratic officials would say only that Clinton won 49.84 percent of the vote and Sanders 49.59 percent, reducing her margin slightly to a quarter of a point. Sanders has called for the raw vote totals to be released. The state party says that's not the way it conducts the caucuses. And the press has...

    GOP front-runner Donald Trump’s son Eric Trump cited his Father Donald’s work ethic, independence, high expectations and patriotism in making the case for the business man for President today to Breitbart News Daily host Stephen K. Bannon. “He doesn’t need this job,” said Eric Trump, “He’s doing it because America has given him everything in the world. It’s given him an amazing company. It’s given him us as a family. It’s given him great success and the country is just going down the tube.” “We’ve got nineteen trillion dollars worth of debt. We’re going bankrupt. We’ve got a nation that’s...

I believe it’s going to lead to victory not just in this primary, but I believe it’s going to lead to victory in November.” Rubio arrived at 6:45 for the 6:30 rally but immediately set up for a Fox News interview, using...

    It's going to be hard for the Republicans to field a presidential candidate as enthusiastic about the H-1B visa as U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas). Cruz, who announced his presidential bid this morning, once proposed an immediate increase in the base H-1B cap from 65,000 to 325,000. Cruz offered the H-1B increase as an amendment in 2013 to the Senate's comprehensive immigration bill. Cruz's amendment was defeated by the Senate's Judiciary Committee, which approved an 180,000 H-1B cap increase in the comprehensive immigration bill. The House never acted on this legislation. Cruz's H-1B amendment, however, proposed increasing H-1B fees from...

    (TRUNEWS) Pope Francis believes Russian President Vladimir Putin can help Christians around the world. A few days ago, TRUNEWS reported the pope’s and Russian Patriarch Kirill planned a last minute meeting, which is set for Friday.

They are expected to sign a joint declaration, and discuss the persecution of Christians in the Middle East and Africa. The Guardian has indicated the discussions could lead to...
