    Republican presidential candidates respond to the ridiculous Democratic National Committee ad you can see here. Huckabee’s comment is most apposite, and is true not just of the DNC, but of the Obama Administration and the mainstream media — as well as much of the Republican establishment.“EXCLUSIVE: Republicans Slam DNC Ad Attacking Them for Using Term ‘Radical Islam,’” by Patrick Howley, Breitbart, November 21, 2015: WASHINGTON -Republicans are slamming the Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) new attack ad criticizing the GOP for using the term “radical Islam.”After radical Islamists carried out deadly terrorist attacks in Paris, the DNC released an ad hitting...

    Mike Huckabee might be down in the polls, but he's still up to throwing a good political punch. On this evening's MTP Daily, Chuck Todd suggested, by way of advocating the admission of Syrian refugees, that the US is better than Europe at "assimilation." Retorted Huckabee, speaking of one of the Boston bombers, "he really assimilated, until he blew up the Boston Marathon with a pressure cooker." Ouch! View the video here.

    GOP presidential candidate former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is calling on Congress to stop President Obama’s plan to bring more Syrian refugees to the U.S. in light of the recent terrorist attack in Paris by a member of ISIS who had embedded in the refugee program. “Speaker Ryan needs to step down today and let someone else lead if he will not act to stop the flow of terrorists to America,” Huckabee stated in a press release, in which he criticized President Obama’s recent comments following the massacre in Paris.

    The hard-line conservative arm of the Heritage Foundation has tough criticism for much of the 2016 field, but high praise for the Texas senator. Many of the lines in the scorecard appear destined for future attack ads.Jeb Bush, for instance, is accused of having "kowtowed to the state's environmental lobby" in Florida. Chris Christie "has shown favoritism toward well-connected real estate developers." Rand Paul's "views at times veer outside the conservative mainstream." And Donald Trump backs "massive tariffs that would damage the American economy."Cruz, by contrast, manages to emerge with barely a blemish, only softly worded critiques of his adopting...

    The conservative group American Christian Voting Guide has ranked many of the current Republican and Democrat presidential candidates according to their supposed biblical qualifications, and graded former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee an "A," while Donald Trump was given an "F." The list, put together by Rev. Steven Andrew, pastor of USA Christian Church, claimed that only four of the candidates would be biblically qualified to serve as president. Ranking the candidates on criteria such as truthfulness, hating covetousness, protecting "God-given rights," fearing God and protecting Christian religious liberty, the guide gave Ted Cruz, Ben Carson, and Rand Paul B-grades, and...

    Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee isn't letting Donald Trump and Ben Carson take all the credit for forcing CNBC to change its debate rules. The network agreed Friday to shorten the next Republican debate to two hours after the pair threatened to pull out of the forum if the network didn't agree to their demands. Huckabee says it was not just the retired neurosurgeon and billionaire businessman that were pushing for the changes. "It wasn't just the two of them. Every one of the candidates and their representatives were in a conference call. In fact, several of them. I understand...

    HOPKINTON – A casual observer could have been forgiven for mistaking the Hopkinton Fairgrounds for Iowa on Saturday. Inside an unheated, cavernous barn, more than 700 grassroots activists conducted their own presidential caucus — rounds of voting and redistributing to select a candidate who would stand up for strict conservative values. In this first-ever New Hampshire caucus, organizers hoped the new style of competition would help unify the right against establishment candidates. In the end (and in the beginning), it wasn't really close: Texas Sen. Ted Cruz cruised to the win after just three rounds of voting. Though all...

    What Kim Davis did was troubling. What Ted Cruz did was downright alarming. Davis, a county clerk in Kentucky, refused to issue marriage certificates to gay couples. She said she was operating “under God’s authority,” but she now sits in jail for ignoring federal authority. Davis, at least, is facing the consequences of her actions. Not so Cruz, senator from Texas and Republican presidential candidate. “Today, judicial lawlessness crossed into judicial tyranny,” he said. “Today, for the first time ever, the government arrested a Christian woman for living according to her faith. . . . I stand with Kim Davis. Unequivocally.” Tyranny?...

    If there is anything presidential candidates agree on this year, it's that our government and politics are not functioning to fulfill the desires of the American people. Donald Trump proclaims that "our system is broken." The phrase could be used by almost anyone in the race. "Government in Washington is dysfunctional," says Mike Huckabee. Bernie Sanders believes "the American political system has been totally corrupted." Joe Biden sounded like a candidate the other day when he lamented the "dysfunction in Washington." The premise is that most Americans want one thing and our leaders in Washington keep giving them something entirely...
  • New Labor Day Polls Show Trump Leading in GOP Favorability & Defeating Every Democrat Challenger

    Two Labor Day Polls Portend Splodey Heads For The Anti-Trump Advocates. Earlier today Gallup released a poll showing that Trump is the most heavily favored candidate (63% Approval Rating) amid Republicans. A devastating defeat for the establishment GOP (GOPe) who are seeking to push their preferred candidate Jeb Bush. Such substantive favorable opinion of candidate Trump puts the RNC/GOPe in a difficult position as they plot to begin their collective assault against the unpalatable frontrunner. But tonight the news for the Vichy Republican crowd is infinite degrees worse. As they plot the best course of Trumps annihilation national polls...

    ASHLAND, Ky. (CBSDC/AP) A defiant county clerk was sent to jail for contempt Thursday after insisting that her conscience will not allow her to follow a federal judges orders to issue marriage licenses to gay couples.

The judge said she left him with no alternative but to jail her, since fines alone would not change her mind. A deputy escorted her out of the courtroom, although...

    ROWAN COUNTY, KY, September 4, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) - Presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee will hold a rally to protest the arrest and imprisonment of a Christian county clerk who refused to issue gay "marriage" licenses to homosexuals, saying the arrest shows that Christian persecution has come to America. The rally, which he dubbed #ImWithKim, will be held in Kentucky on Tuesday, his campaign announced today. Further details will be forthcoming, as the event is still being planned. "Having Kim Davis in federal custody removes all doubt of the criminalization of Christianity in our country," Gov. Huckabee said following the arrest for...

    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, doesnt 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. Daviss case...

    While Kentucky clerk Kim Davis continues to sit in jail after refusing to give out marriage licenses to same-sex couples, Mike Huckabee plans to stand up for her. The former Arkansas governor announced Thursday that he will be heading up a "liberty rally" next Tuesday for the jailed county clerk in Kentucky. According to his campaign, Huckabee will be joined by Matt Staver, the founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, who is representing Davis in court. "This is a reckless, appalling, out-of-control decision that undermines the Constitution of the United States and our fundamental right to religious liberty," Huckabee said...

    Donald Trump has reached a new high in the race for the Republican presidential nomination. According to a Monmouth University survey released on Thursday, Trump takes 30 percent support nationally, a four-point gain over the same survey from before the first GOP debate. Ben Carson is a distant second place in the poll, taking 18 percent support. The retired neurosurgeon has risen sharply in the polls over the past month. He was at only 5 percent support in the same poll from early August. The rest of the Republican field isnt even in the same ballpark. Former Florida Gov. Jeb...

    No matter where you stand on this, can we come together for a moment and acknowledge the plain truth of this point by Dan McLaughlin? If elected Democrat Kim Davis was doing this to the death penalty, drug or immigration laws, or voter ID laws, they'd hail her as a hero.— Dan McLaughlin (@baseballcrank) September 2, 2015 It’s not that she refuses to perform her public duties that has left-wing critics exercised, it’s that she refuses to performs these specific duties. As it is, TNR’s demanding that Davis be thrown in jail — not just fined or fired, but...
