  • Jeb Bush: Kim Davis Is ‘Sworn to Uphold the Law’

    Former governor Jeb Bush said that Kim Davis, a Kentucky county clerk jailed for contempt of court after refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, doesn’t have the authority to defy the courts. “She is sworn to uphold the law, and it seems to me that there ought to be common ground, there ought to be big enough space for her to act on her conscience and — now that the law is the law of the land — for a gay couple to be married in whatever jurisdiction that is,” Bush told reporters in New Hampshire. Davis’s case...
  • Trump Now Out-polling Jeb 8-1 in Iowa (New Gravis Poll Trump-31.7% Carson-15.8% Bush-4.1%)

    Donald Trump is maintaining a commanding 2-1 lead in the latest poll of GOP caucus goers in Iowa, and his only rival in double digits is another political novice, Dr. Ben Carson. Former frontrunner FL Gov. Jeb Bush has tumbled into eighth place despite his $100-million bankroll. In a Gravis Marketing poll of 507 Iowa Republicans conducted last Friday and Saturday, Trump has 31.7 percent to Carson’s 15.8 and Bush’s 4.1 percent. A Monmouth University poll released yesterday had showed Trump and Carson running neck and neck with 23 percent – much to the excitement of the GOP establishment, including...
  • In Iowa and New Hampshire, Carly Fiorina Is Rising

    National Review ^ | 09/02/2015 | David French
    An interesting thing is happening in Iowa and New Hampshire, where the early polls matter the most. Carly Fiorina is in third place, and rising. In Iowa, she leads every current and former Republican officeholder and trails only the other insurgent candidates, Donald Trump and Ben Carson. In New Hampshire, she trails Trump and a surprising John Kasich. That’s bad news for Republican officeholders, good news for the political insurgents, and great news for Fiorina. In all likelihood, she will be the last outsider standing. Political campaigns are long and brutal, with external events often dictating the topics and media...

    Have conservatives caused the liberal media to totally crack up and reveal their utter contempt for those who disagree with them? In recent days we've seen Mike Barnicle declare that he wants to live "as far away as possible" from anti-establishment Republican voters, and Sirius host John Fugelsang contemptously call conservatives "rubes" that Fox News labors to keep in its "paddock." The cavalcade of liberal contempt for conservatives continued on Chris Hayes' MSNBC show tonight, as Esquire's Charlie Pierce described the Republican Iowa caucuses as being controlled "by a freakish minority of a freakish Republican party."

    Donald Trump still holds the top spot with 25 percent of likely Republican caucus-goers. Carson takes second with 18 percent and Bush follows at 10 percent. Carson’s rise from 6.3 percent in the April Loras poll comes just one day after a Monmouth University poll found him tied with Trump at the top of the Hawkeye State polls. The retired neurosurgeon has been steadily gaining ground over the past few weeks and has come in second to Trump in two recent national polls.

    KNOXVILLE, Iowa -- A solider kneeling at a cross at a park in Knoxville has been the topic of debate for weeks now. Earlier this month, a resident asked the city to remove the cross, but on Sunday, the majority of the community rallied together to convince the city to keep it.Close to 2,000 people protested around the display in Young’s Park. They made their stance known before the city makes its decision on whether to remove the cross.Several veterans, state politicians and residents spoke Sunday saying the cross should stay.“That’s their constitutional right to be offended, but it's also...

In May, when the Register last polled, 27 percent of likely Iowa GOP caucus-goers viewed Trump favorably while 63 percent regarded him unfavorably. In the new poll, which was released Saturday night, Trump's favorable number is at 61 percent and his unfavorable at 35 percent. Um, WHAT? Let me put it another way: W-H-A-T???

    The GOP is panicking. And it should be. Conservatives are sending an angry unambiguous message to the party. The message can be read not only in the rise of Donald Trump, but also in the rise of Ben Carson. Republican voters are choosing candidates who don’t talk or seem like politicians. They have lost all faith in the Republican Party. And it’s hard to blame them. Conservatives poured time, energy and money into a party that promised to counter Obama and take back America. The GOP controls both houses of Congress and conservatives have nothing to show for it. Support...

They're doing wonderful, that's great," Trump said, to some laughter from the crowd. "They say, 'We want deal!'"

    WASHINGTON -- Every sulfurous belch from the molten interior of the volcanic Trump phenomenon injures the chances of a Republican presidency. After Donald Trump finishes plastering a snarling face on conservatism, any Republican nominee will face a dauntingly steep climb to reach even the paltry numbers that doomed Mitt Romney. It is perhaps quixotic to try to distract Trump's supporters with facts, which their leader, who is no stickler for dignity, considers beneath him. Still, consider these: The white percentage of the electorate has been shrinking for decades and will be about 2 points smaller in 2016 than in 2012....

After watching that interview, I believe that Jorge Ramos’ actions were an embarrassment to Hispanics, immigrants, reporters and to Univision.

    Hey Jorge Ramos: I’m sure the Trump campaign wants to send you a thank you card and a fruit basket. What’s the best address? At a press conference in Iowa Tuesday night, the Univision “reporter” (quotes intended) tried his best to put Donald Trump on the spot regarding his immigration policies but guess what? It totally backfired. Look, by the now many of you have seen the video of Ramos being escorted out of the room by security after trying to ask his immigration question. Some may say that approach was unnecessary but let’s look at the facts. First of...

    85 On Wednesday, MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski said that “Just like Fox” Univision and Fusion anchor Jorge Ramos was lecturing GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, not asking him questions. After fellow co-host former Republican Congressman Joe Scarborough stated, “he gave a lecture, he wasn’t asking a question. And i don’t know what politician would have been — actually I wouldn’t have been that patient with him. I would have said, ‘You got a question?'” Brzezinski added, “Just like Fox, the debate.” Panelist Mike Barnicle added that Ramos was engaging in a “debate” with Trump, not a Q&A. Scarborough...

    “As an American I feel frustrated because people are losing sight of what Donald Trump is trying to say. What he’s saying is, people should come to this country legally. And I know about that process very well because my husband is going through it right now and it’s extremely expensive. So there’s more incentive for people to come over to this country illegally. So all he’s saying is, let’s make the process to come here easier and less expensive so there’s more incentive to do that. When people cross the border who are not supposed to be here, let’s...

  • Donald Trump kicked TV’s most influential Latino newsman out of a press conference

    Donald Trump, derider of Mexican illegal immigrants, insulter of POWs and GOP front-runner, kicked journalist Jorge Ramos out of a press conference Tuesday evening.
