    President Trump should not make any change in policy pertaining to the Jersualem’s status as the capital of Israel, a top European official warned Tuesday. “A way must be found through negotiations to resolve the status of Jerusalem as the future capital of both states so that the aspiration of both parties can be fulfilled,” Federica Mogherini, the European Union’s high representative, told reporters.

    Tawfiq catapulted to fame when he took time out of his day job as a business analyst last year to develop an anonymous messaging tool called Sarahah -- honesty in Arabic -- that subsequently topped the charts for app downloads. Initially conceived as a tool for soliciting bluntly frank workplace feedback, Sarahah has found its way into the smartphones of millennials worldwide, even as critics have raised alarm about trolling and privacy issues. it is built on the premise that stripping users of their identity promotes ruthless honesty. "Feedback is the goal -- anonymous feedback."

    Republican nominee Donald Trump enjoyed a warmer welcome from the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) in Charlotte, North Carolina than his rival Hillary Clinton received on Monday. The New York Republican told the crowd that spending time with veterans has been the “greatest honor of this campaign.” “Our veterans are the bravest and the finest people on earth,” Trump said, as he pledged to work with the VFW if elected president. “Our most basic commitment to provide health and medical care [to veterans] has been violated completely.” “The other candidate in this race, crooked Hillary Clinton, […] has a much...
  • Obama: Honesty Is ‘Absolutely Necessary’ Trait for a President

    07/24/2016 11:27:45 AM PDT · by PROCON · 78 replies ^ | July 24, 2016 | David Rutz
    President Obama said in an interview with CBS airing Sunday that honesty was “absolutely necessary” for a president in order to build trust with the American people. Obama has endorsed his former secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, to succeed him in the White House. In the wake of her private email scandal and the FBI’s revelation that she was “extremely careless” with classified material, Clinton’s honesty numbers with the public are dismal. The FBI also refuted Clinton’s constant claim that she never sent or received classified material on her server, which she has dismissed as a mere “mistake.” “FDR and...

    What's in a quote? For Joe Biden, his plagiarisation of a speech delivered by Neil Kinnock, then Labour leader, helped put pay to his own campaign to win the Democrats' presidential nomination more than 20 years ago. The speech by Mr Kinnock, as he desperately tried to remodel and rebuild the Labour Party, was widely judged to be a dramatic and powerful piece of political rhetoric - making it particularly tempting

    While interviewing Bernie Sanders on "Meet The Press" on October 11, 2015 Chuck Todd asked the following question: “Are you a capitalist?” Bernie answered “No. I’m a democratic socialist.” To properly understand his answer, it is helpful to go back 104 years to the candidacy of Eugene V. Debs who, in 1912, ran for president on the Socialist Party ticket. In that election, there were four candidates for President: William Howard Taft (Republican), Theodore Roosevelt (Progressive), Woodrow Wilson (Democrat), and Eugene V. Debs (Socialist). On some of the platform planks, there was an overlap between the Socialists and the Progressives....

    Like father, like son: Poppy Bush looked the American people square in the eye and said, "Read my lips: no new taxes." Of course, the former Director of Central Intelligence welshed, because lying is what he did for a living. Now comes his son Jeb, who raised his hand and pledged to support the eventual nominee of the Republican party in the race for president, back when he thought he had a chance. Naturally, the chip off the old block has reneged. In a Facebook post, Bush announced that he could not in good conscience vote for Donald Trump, saying...

    Employees at an Oklahoma City Krispy Kreme store are searching for an elderly man who left behind something very valuable. He dropped nearly $500 in cash while he was in their store, located at Penn and Memorial. The man dropped the money on the floor in the lobby around 4 p.m. Wednesday afternoon. “The gentleman had come in, purchased a couple of donuts. As he was putting his money away, he dropped some on the floor,” said Jason Hart with Krispy Kreme. At the time, no one noticed anything strange. About 20 minutes later, an employee was sweeping the lobby...

    ..... The Republican presidential candidate has repeatedly said that "Muslims love him" despite his provocative policies, but has so far failed to name any single individual Muslim supporter. Asked by the Telegraph to elaborate, Mr Trump again ducked the question responding: "Oh, I could give you about 20 of them."... Donald Trump Junior, Mr Trump's son, was also unable to tell the Telegraph who his father's Muslim friends were, saying only that they had "completed a lot of business deals" in the Middle East.

    I applauded when Donald Trump jumped into the Republican presidential nominating fray. Here was someone with overwhelming national recognition due to his celebrity status, as well as someone who was politically independent due to his wealth. Someone of that stature could potentially drive a stake through the heart of the Republican establishment and forcefully blunt the folly of political correctness that has inundated American society. During the early stages of his campaign Trump exceeded all expectations in both of these arenas. However,as the novelty has begun to wear thin and his speeches and talking points have become annoyingly repetitive the...
  • Pamela Geller named Woman of the Year (by WND)

    12/31/2015 3:19:42 AM PST · by RoosterRedux · 5 replies
    Backing down is not in Pamela Geller's lexicon. In May 2015, Geller hosted an art exhibit and drawing contest featuring images of the Muslim prophet Muhammad. Her aim was to stand up for free speech by showing that Muslims could not intimidate non-Muslim Americans into following Shariah blasphemy laws, which prohibit any depictions of Muhammad. Two gunmen showed up at the Garland, Texas, event and started shooting, injuring a security officer before being killed by police. Frightened into silence? Not Geller. A month later, she launched a new billboard-ad campaign featuring the winning drawing from the Muhammad art contest. The...

    WASHINGTON So you like Donald Trump? You may be reluctant to tell a live telephone pollster, a new study found. “Social desirability may be a key factor in why Donald Trump performs better in online polls than through live-telephone interviews,” according to a study released Monday by Morning Consult, which studies political trends. The group interviewed 2,397 registered Republicans and Republican-leaning independents in mid-December. People began the survey online, and one-third then answered questions about Trump and other GOP candidates online. One-third answered the questions with a live interview via telephone, and another third answered with an automated phone voice.

    The big winner was Cruz, and the big loser was Bush. See below. Just to get started on the right foot, let's state at the outset that "the moderators" could not be the winners of a national debate. They can certainly be the losers, however, if they impede, if they are biased, or if they are infantile. That describes the CNBC moderators and the first Fox News moderators, Kelly/Wallace/Baier. They were losers. But for moderators to 'win' means we have relegated the issues and the candidates to some kind of back row. Who were the real winners last night? I...

    I expect to hear it from socialist college professors and Che Guevara t-shirt wearing coffee house loiterers. But to hear it from conservatives with actual jobs is a painful reminder of the ease with which the media have convinced Americans to shut off their minds and allow pundits to do the thinking for them. “I’m worried that Ted Cruz is too extreme.”During the night, someone did a job on the word “extreme.” It ain’t what it used to be. We learned this week that the official position of Obama’s Department of Education is that men should be able to infiltrate...
