  • Trump Says Group of Black Clergy Was Likely Pressured Out of Endorsing Him by Black Lives Matter

    The Blaze ^ | November 30, 2015 | AP curated by Chris Enloe
    NEW YORK (AP) - Donald Trump says he thinks a group of black pastors meeting with him Monday had planned to endorse him for president but were pressured out of it because he "believes all lives matter." "Probably some of the Black Lives Matter folks called them up and said, 'Oh, you shouldn't be meeting with Trump because he believes all lives matter,'" Trump said Monday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," referring to the movement protesting against police brutality and the killing of unarmed African-Americans. Trump predicted some of the 100 black evangelical leaders would endorse him after the meeting, nonetheless....

    None of us knows how this election is going to play out, but the one thing that we can say is that this has been the most entertaining presidential primary season ever. By far the most amusing part has been the utter state of panic the GOP establishment has been in since the voters took a look at their "electability" candidate, Jeb Bush, and started laughing. Since then one nightmare has followed another. If I'd had the foresight, I could have financed my children's college expenses by selling brown trousers to the US Chamber of Commerce and the GOP Senate...

    On Meet the Press this morning, Donald Trump insisted that: he was "100 percent right" when he said he saw thousands of Muslims in Jersey City, New Jersey, cheering the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center, even though fact-checkers have debunked his assertion. In a phone interview on NBC's "Meet the Press," Trump said he has heard from "hundreds of people that agree" that there were televised Muslim celebrations of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, which he used as evidence to show his remarks were true. "I saw it. So many people saw it," said Trump, who, in the...

    In the summer of 1992, Rush Limbaugh saved me from myself. I was an 18-year-old high school graduate about to begin college, too impatient to wait for adulthood to come to me. So instead, I went in search of it the only way I knew how: by engulfing myself in presidential politics and the fascinating campaigns that summer between Bill Clinton, George Bush and Ross Perot. Like many idealistic teens, I was at first drawn to the youthful Clinton campaign and Fleetwood Mac's cheerful command to "Don't stop thinking about tomorrow." But then I started listening to Limbaugh and it...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | November 23, 2015 | Byron York
    Donald Trump says a lot of things a lot of people consider outrageous. What is he doing? The first thing to remember is that many of Trump's supporters, and a large part of the American public in general, support the very statements others consider outrageous. Deport 11 million illegal immigrants? Many Americans, including almost everyone in the media, think that's crazy. But many other Americans agree with Trump. The recent brouhaha over whether Trump did or did not suggest a federal government database of all Muslims in the United States is another example. Trump didn't actually suggest it - the...

    That might be a slight exaggeration. Hillary Clinton doesn’t lose to everyone in the latest Fox poll, released yesterday. She beats Bernie Sanders for the Democratic presidential nomination, and ties Carly Fiorina in a general-election match-up. Other than that, though, it’s a Republican blitz, as The Hill notes: Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.) would do best against Clinton, 50 to 42 percent, pollsters found.Billionaire Donald Trump, retired pediatric neurosurgeon Ben Carson, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie would also win hypothetical elections, according to the new poll, taken after more than 100...

    Many around me in the coffee shop nodded in agreement in support of welcoming Christian refugees and rejecting those of other faiths. It fits their narrative that they should help persecuted Christians. After all, despite the fact that American Christians are the most entitled and privileged people in the history of the planet, many feel persecuted.One of the more endearing customs of many of our small town Iowa churches on Sunday morning is story time. The pastor welcomes elementary and pre-school aged kids up front, where he or she sits with the children, and shares a parable. Often the pastor...

    As has been made abundantly clear by his incessant mewling and pathetically thin skin, Donald J. Trump is not in fact an unwaveringly resolute tough guy of the type you would hope to find standing next to you in the trenches, but an insecure attention seeker who cannot help but pander to his audiences' prejudices. In the past few days, Trump has been asked variously whether, if elected, he would use his power to close mosques; whether he believes that Muslims should be registered in a special government database; and whether or not it would be a good idea to...

    A market economy is a tool for securing human welfare and promoting human freedom. It may or may not be effective at those things, but either way, that's what it is: a tool. Sadly, the contemporary Republican Party has elevated that tool into a religion, bowing before it and disparaging those who don't.We need some philosophers to scrutinize that religion's dogmas, and we need some welders to help dismantle its gaudy temples. Last night, as I listened to the Republican debate, I was surprised to hear my own profession called out by name. I am a professor of philosophy. Accordingly,...

"[He is] a very good guy," Trump said when asked about the fellow presidential candidate, according to NBC News. "There could certainly be a place for him," he added when a questioner floated Christie as Trump's potential running mate in 2016. Trump was appearing in Manchester, N.H. for one of the Granite State's Politics & Eggs events. NBC News said Wednesday that the business mogul addressed a wide range of policy issues. Among the topics he discussed were education, immigration and even the...

Kasich was condescending and rude in a way Trump had not yet been to him. But Trump threw it back in Kasich's face. Trump talked about Eisenhower and immigration, pointing out that everybody liked Ike and this is what Ike did. He then dismissed Kasich's economic success as not a product of Kasich's genius, but of finding oil in the state. Kasich came unhinged. He had the irritating...

    During last night's Republican presidential debate, the Wall Street Journal's Gerard Baker made a critical mistake: He tried to pin Donald Trump down on policy specifics. In this case, it was about trade policy, a subject about which Trump evidently knows very little. Baker asked the billionaire "which particular parts" of the pending Trans-Pacific Partnership free trade deal he objected to. If he were familiar with the deal, Trump could have raised any of several issues. Instead, he continued with the same word salad about China that he has been issuing forth since long before the TPP had been negotiated...

    Republican voters in blue states have more power than Republican voters in red states. Conservative activists in the United States like to complain that there is a Republican “establishment” keeping their candidates from winning presidential nominations. Given how far to the right Republicans have veered in recent years — to the point where Mitt Romney felt he had to reinvent himself as a strong rightwinger four years ago to win the nomination — such laments may seem incredible. Turns out they have a point. FiveThirtyEight reports that Republicans in Democratic-voting states have a disproportionate influence in the party’s primary elections....

On the other hand, Hillary Clinton believes in man-induced global warming. Many of the same people criticizing Carson actually believe that gender has nothing to do with chromosomes or endocrinology or physiology. When it comes to GMOs, especially seeds...

But as the sprawling class of 2016 Republican presidential candidates tumbled out of their chaotic second debate last week, it was increasingly clear that those rule changes from limiting the number of debates to adjusting how delegates are allocated had failed to...

The governor chose Ronald Reagan's alma mater of Eureka College for a speech aimed at invigorating his flagging campaign less than a week before the second GOP debate. Walker spoke on the same stage where Reagan, as a freshman in 1928, gave a speech during a student strike, and his remarks were infused with references to the late president. Walker...

"When I am elected president, I will renegotiate with Iran right after I enable the immediate release of our American prisoners and ask Congress to...

    ~~~Sparring with ObamaOn Monday, Obama criticized Walker for his actions without naming the governor."He is bragging about how he destroyed collective bargaining rights in his state," Obama said in a Labor Day speech in Boston. "And (he) says that busting unions prepares him to fight (the terrorist group) ISIL. I didn't make that up. That's what he said."..The governor hit back Monday, saying Act 10 had saved billions of dollars through lowering the compensation packages of public workers."What we did in Wisconsin was taking the power away from the big government union bosses and put it back in the hands...

    [BIG SNIP] ....The trouble is that simple strong leadership isn't going to get the job done. Here's why. Almost everything we want the next president to do will fly in the face of liberal conventional wisdom and the liberal activist world, so everything he and his administration and Congress want to do will face determined opposition that will fill the airwaves and the public square. The next president needs to be someone like Ronald Reagan and prep himself for the presidency by broadcasting issue-a-week radio spots for years before he ran for president. He'd need to be a charmer who...

    Megachurch Pastor Paula White Marries 3rd Husband Former Journey Rocker Jonathan Cain; She's His 4th Wife Popular televangelist and megachurch pastor Paula White tied the knot for the third time with rocker Jonathan Cain last month and this time could just be the charm. White's Chicago-born husband made a name for himself in the music industry playing with the bands Bad English and Journey. He wrote Journey's mega-hit song "Don't Stop Believin.'" White, who hosts the television show "Paula White Today," which has aired on BET and TBN, shared a message with her Facebook followers celebrating the April 26 wedding....
  • Did I hear Rush Right? Don't let Trump's views bother us 'Cause RNC said Bush, McCain, Romney OK

    Did I hear Rush say that we should be willing to vote for Trump even with all of his baggage and left leaning positions and support for Democrats!? He said the RNC told us to support McCain and Romney (and I think he threw Bush in there) so we should have no trouble supporting Trump. That's some kind of rallying cry for conservatives. So would someone please tell me what Trump stands for (other than saying he'll build the fence and deport gang members), and why (other than you want to believe that he has changed) why anyone would trust...

    With all of the outrageous and downright offensive remarks that have been regurgitated by Donald Trump over the past few months, the most logical forecast made by political analysts was that his campaign would implode, sooner than later, as so many have before. Like the stock market, Trump 2016 seems to be based on a bubble of irrational emotions in this case fear and at any moment, that bubble could burst. Today, however, its looking more and more like Trumps lead in the polls is not going to burst anytime soon, and that the man who seems to...

    HIGHLAND PARK Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker brought his mild manner, shy smile and promise to wreak havoc on Washington if elected president to a century-old soda fountain in the North Texas enclave of Highland Park Wednesday, opening a three-day swing through Texas. One of the things I heard inside there and I hear from other people across the country is that Americans are looking for someone to shake things up, Walker said, speaking before a throng of reporters after spending more than an hour working his way through the crowd of folks gathered at the Highland Park Soda Fountain....

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, the frequent recipient of attacks from Donald Trump, is out with a new video compilation of the New York businessman taking liberal positions in past interviews. The video from the Bush campaign comes a day after Trumps campaign released a social media video drawing attention to Bushs past statement that illegal immigration is an act of love while showing examples of illegal immigrants who have gone on to commit violent crimes. The video which the campaign calls The Real Donald Trump shows videos from years ago of Trump taking liberal positions on abortion,...

    Donald Trump may show up to his campaign events in his own 757 aircraft emblazoned with a personal logo. But Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker may trump Mr. Trump for the flashiest ride over Labor Day. Mr. Walker plans a bodacious motorcycle ride through New Hampshire which covers considerable territory. Mark the date on your calendar! Governor Scott Walker will be riding a Harley-Davidson through all 10 counties, his campaign advises. .......Mr. Walker has released a new video message with a close focus on the Iran nuclear accord. I refuse to live with a deal that threatens our safety and that...

    As Gov. Scott Walker faced ridicule Monday for calling the building of a wall on the Canadian border a legitimate issue, his presidential campaign said he isnt pushing for the idea. Despite the attempts of some to put words in his mouth, Gov. Walker wasnt advocating for a wall along our northern border, Walker spokeswoman AshLee Strong said in a statement. The campaign responded after Walkers comment was widely mocked, from a Democratic senator calling it one of the craziest ideas of the campaign so far to fellow GOP presidential candidate Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, saying building a Canadian wall...

    Ora.TV host Jesse Ventura ripped Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) for signing an extreme anti-abortion bill into law last year, sarcastically saying it did not go far enough. If he believes that if a doctor performs this its murder, then charge the doctor with murder. And its premeditated so it would be first-degree murder, wouldnt it? he said. These guys, if they truly want to stand up for it, then they gotta go all the way with it. The bill bans the procedure after the 20-week mark of any pregnancy, and does not contain exceptions for rape and incest victims....

    Real estate mogul Donald Trump said on Sunday he is not intimidated by Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, given his fellow GOP presidential candidates handling of the Badger State. Well, Im not worried because his state is really in trouble, Trump told host George Stephanopoulos on ABCs This Week. I mean, its a fantastic place, he said. I love the people of Wisconsin, but if you look at whats going on, they have a $2.2 billion deficit. They were supposed to have a surplus of $1 billion and they have $2.2 billion. Theres tremendous divisions throughout the state, Trump added. He...

    "..................In my book, if you are pissing off liberals this much, you must be doing something right.The problem for the Left as it concerns Walker is that he is a tough cookie to crack. One Democrat in Wisconsin said that despite the situation and how dire it may seem for him, he always responds with a wink or a smile.Of course, Walker would not be the only Republican to be flirting with what they refer to as racist ethno-nationalists. Since most of their accusations and proof is rooted in code words and dog whistles, ethno-nationalist is a Leftist code word...
