    Many within the GOP establishment — including Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul — are finally waking up to an inconvenient truth. Namely, this election cycle is a season for outsiders. As Donald Trump, Carly Fiorina, and Ben Carson surge in the polls, certain candidates who enjoyed mass quantities of encouragement and support from the Republican old guard are falling by the wayside with increasing speed, like Texas Governor Rick Perry, who many Republicans viewed as a shoo-in for the nomination and who suspended his campaign two weeks ago. Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, a favorite among social...

    Ben Carson once gently questioned Donald Trump's Christian faith, but on Friday Bobby Jindal went much further. The Louisiana governor explicitly and repeatedly ridiculed Trump's faith, effectively accusing him of faking his Christianity before an evangelical conference that had heard the GOP frontrunner speak only hours earlier. Jindal, who is lagging at 0.3 percent in the national polls for the Republican presidential nominee, came onto the stage at the Values Voter Summit in Washington holding a book. Jindal joked with the audience, saying that Trump -- who on Friday morning held up what he said was his childhood Bible before...

A quarter of Iowa Republicans say it’s Jindal, a frequent visitor to their state, who is on his way out. "He's become desperate," an Iowa Republican said. "He's taken to attacking Trump (we know how that worked out for Perry and Walker) and has nothing going on here in Iowa." Added another, who like all participants was granted anonymity in order...

    Greenville, South Carolina (CNN)—Republican presidential hopefuls were split Friday amid the fallout from Donald Trump not taking issue with a man who, during a campaign event, called President Barack Obama a Muslim and said Muslims are "a problem in this country." Rick Santorum and Ted Cruz refused to criticize Trump or say whether they believe Obama is a Christian, instead slamming reporters for asking about the incident. Jindal said it wasn't a candidate's "role" to correct a questioner -- but also said he would have pointed out the U.S.'s anti-discrimination values.

Jindal argued that Trump is duping voters by seeking to present himself like former President Ronald Reagan on the campaign trail....

    You know you’re losing when Donald Trump stops responding to you on Twitter. That’s the situation facing Bobby Jindal, the Republican governor of Louisiana, who is currently tied for 10th place in the GOP presidential field. Jindal is on a desperate mission to troll Trump by whatever means possible. Television hits, interviews, speeches, social media — it’s all part of the playbook to boost Jindal’s visibility in the early states where Trump is dominating the race. As you might expect, it’s a tough climb. Jindal received only 1 percent of the vote nationwide in a new Washington Post-ABC News poll...

Since progressives control most of the media and pop culture, they set the terms of the debate. Ferguson, Missouri, has been wracked by violence for a year due to a coordinated lie accusing a racist cop of gunning down an innocent black teen with his hands up, pleading “don’t shoot!” The press lionized a Texas backbencher for bravely defending women’s health, even though Wendy Davis was blocking...

    Perhaps today will mark the beginning of a new phase in the long campaign for the GOP nomination for president in 2016. That’s possible because two of the leading candidates — Wisconsin governor Scott Walker and Florida senator Marco Rubio — have offered serious plans for replacing Obamacare in its entirety. (In Senator Rubio’s case, he reiterated in an op-ed the principles of a plan he outlined several months ago.) They, along with Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal, are now the candidates who can speak most credibly about what’s wrong with Obamacare, because they have actual plans to do something about...

A 50-state study puts Jindal’s Louisiana in second-to-last place for children’s health outcomes.

Later he shot himself, the Lafayette City Police chief Jim Craft told reporters. Jindal, who has been busy in his presidential campaign most of the week rushed to the scene to personally lead the post-shooting effort. "I'm on my way to Lafayette right...

    AMES - Moments before she would hear 10 Republican presidential candidates speak, a woman from Ames said she would like to see 16 years of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz in the White House starting in 2017. Judging by the response from the thousands who attended Saturday’s event, which was organized by Iowa’s largest Christian conservative organization, that woman is not alone. Trump — who made some particularly provoking comments — Cruz and Bobby Jindal received some of the most vociferous responses during the fourth annual Family Leader Summit, held Saturday in an auditorium on the Iowa State University campus....

    Thursday, on MSNBC’s “Hardball With Chris Matthews,” Vox’s chief political correspondent Jonathan Allen said Republican presidential candidate Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-LA) was “making a play for religious bigotry” by calling the Tennessee shooting at two military facilities by Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez that resulted in his death and the death of four Marines a consequence of “radical Islam.”

    Gov. Bobby Jindal on Tuesday announced he's directed the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals to investigate Planned Parenthood activities in the state after a video surfaced that claims the organization is selling fetal body parts... The investigation means the $4 million clinic planned for New Orleans will not be able to open because Jindal's order includes suspending the issuance of new licenses by DHH.

    Five reasons why Bush should pick Haley.The likes of Gov. Bobby Jindal, Dr. Ben Carson and Sen. Ted Cruz may seem like the face of diversity in the Republican Party; a Brown, Black and Latino all vying for a GOP nomination to run for president is a powerful enough symbol of the changing times in America. But in reality Jindal, Cruz and Carson are odd balls in the GOP, terribly out of sync with what America wants in an all-encompassing leader. They have already been ‘certified’ as ideologues who could lead the country on the dangerous path of divisiveness and...

    TRENTON — A defiant Gov. Chris Christie appeared on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" to defend his badly listing New Jersey job approval polls as the effect of incessant media attacks, rather than his true record. Asked why his job approval dropped from 70 plus percentage ratings to the current 36 percent low, Christie answered, "How 'bout nightly specials on this network, for like, five months, calling me Attila the Hun? How 'bout relentless attacks from the New York Times and the media?" However, he also acknowledged the negative effect that his decision to seek the GOP 2016 nomination was taking. "Then,"...

    Republican presidential aspirant Bobby Jindal has sought steps by the United States to take the mantel of global leadership saying even non-aligned nations like India and Vietnam are desperate and hungry for American leadership. Trashing the foreign policy of the Obama Administration, Jindal, told the Fox News, “We would work not only with our allies, like Japan and South Korea and Taiwan. We'd work with non-aligned countries like India and Vietnam that are desperate and hungry for American leadership." Jindal, who last month announced his bid for the 2016 presidential elections, was responding to questions on addressing the challenges being...

    Pataki sends letter to other GOP candidates asking them to call out Trump on comments regarding illegal immigrants.ALLENSTOWN, N.H. —Presidential candidates flocked to the Granite State during the July Fourth weekend. Former New York Gov. George Pataki and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal attended a cookout hosted by the Merrimack County Republican Committee. The event was low-key and gave both Republican candidates the chance to talk one on one with voters. Both candidates had something to say about recent comments from Republican challenger Donald Trump. “I am disappointed he (Trump) hasn’t seen that it was a stupid and wrong comment,” Pataki...

    Today we are here in a moment of unity in our state without ill will to say it is time to remove the flag from our capitol grounds,” said Haley, who is the state’s first non-white governor. WASHINGTON – Growing outrage against a slavery-era Confederate flag, artfully channeled by South Carolina’s governor Nikki Haley, nee Nimrata Randhawa, following last week’s racist-terrorist attack in Charleston, has pitch-forked the Indian-American politician into being talked up as a potential Republican vice-presidential candidate in 2016. The flag, seen by many as a symbol of the slavery-supporting confederate states that were defeated in the American...

    In the wake of Friday’s historic Supreme Court ruling on marriage equality, Republicans did not hold back their rage – but few politicians went as far as 2016 candidate Gov. Bobby Jindal. The Louisiana Republican, who launched a longshot bid for the presidency last week, suggested that the 5-4 ruling, which made same-sex marriage legal throughout the nation, was cause for disbanding the entire Supreme Court. “The Supreme Court is completely out of control, making laws on their own, and has become a public opinion poll instead of a judicial body,” Jindal said in a statement on Friday. “If we...
