    Washington (CNN)Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz made an unusual suggestion for U.N. ambassador at a rally on Friday: "Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson. "How much would you pay to see the Russian ambassador's face when Phil says, 'What is wrong with you people?'" Cruz joked to an applauding crowd in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

    A new poll of Arizona Republican voters shows former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina as the big winner in this week's presidential debate on CNN. Summit Consulting Group surveyed 996 likely GOP voters on who they thought won the three-hour debate this week. Forty-six percent picked Fiorina, who touts her business background, as the winner. U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida was second at 18.2 percent followed by GOP frontrunner Donald Trump with 16 percent. Several online, unscientific post-debate polls were dominated by Trump supporters. ...
  • Donald Trump Demands $10 Million to Charities to Appear at CNN Debate

    Donald Trump continues his successful run of making headlines by asking questions few have thought, or would think, to speak. In fact, the Donald had a lot to say in Time magazine’s cover story, not the least of which was his suggestion that he is such a ratings draw that CNN should pay him to appear at its presidential debate on Sept. 16. “Here’s my question: So if I go to CNN and I say, Look, you’re going to have a massive audience, and if I say to them, I want $10 million for charity, nothing for myself, what happens?...

    WASHINGTON -- Donald Trump thinks the United States will not see another black president for some time because Barack Obama has "set a very poor standard," the billionaire businessman, entertainer and Republican presidential candidate told ABC News on Sunday. Trump -- who has questioned whether Obama was born in the United States and was once sued by the Justice Department because the management of his apartment complexes allegedly discriminated against black tenants -- also thinks he'll win the black vote. Trump responded to a question on the show about a tweet he sent last year saying America would not see...

    Republican senator Ted Cruz said Wednesday afternoon he is “long-term optimistic and short-term pessimistic” on the question of passing any immigration reform legislation. Speaking with Javier Palomarez, the president of the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the Texan presidential candidate said he considers himself a “proponent of immigration reform.” But, Cruz added, political leaders should focus on those aspects that have “bipartisan support.”

    After refusing to meet for drinks with the head of the Illinois Legislative Latino Caucus Foundation, the organization told the Hispanic student she was not eligible for a scholarship given she was Muslim, the young woman claims in court.

She is seeking punitive damages for breach of contract and violation of due process. Elusta, a student of UIC from 2011 to 2014 who was on track to graduate in three years with a 3.32 grade point average, claims ILLCF’s...

    The New York Police Department is receiving widespread criticism after officers injured an 84-year-old man—who doesn’t speak English and didn’t understand police orders—for the crime of jaywalking. Kang Wong committed jaywalking at an Upper West Side intersection in New York City around 5 p.m. on Sunday, according to the New York Post. He is a resident of the area. An officer soon approached him and tried to write him a ticket. But Wong, who speaks only broken English, didn’t understand what was happening, and continued walking away from the officer. When the officer tried to grab him, he pushed back....
  • Obama to Propose Massive Tax Breaks for Businesses to Invest in Growth

    09/06/2010 7:27:32 PM PDT · by Blood of Tyrants · 158 replies · 3+ views ^ | 9/6/2010 | Unknown
    President Obama, in one of his most dramatic gestures to business, will propose that companies be allowed to write off 100 percent of their new investment in plant and equipment through 2011, a plan that White House economists say would cut business taxes by nearly $200 billion over two years. The proposal, to be laid out Wednesday in a speech in Cleveland, tops a raft of announcements, from a proposed expansion of the research and experimentation tax credit to $50 billion in additional spending on roads, railways and runways. But unlike those two ideas, both familiar from Obama's 2008 campaign,...

    BOSTON – Scott Brown says he has already told Senate Republican leaders they won't always be able to count on his vote. The man who staged an upset in last week's Massachusetts Senate special election, in part by pledging to be the 41st GOP vote against President Barack Obama's health care overhaul, told The Associated Press in an interview Thursday that he staked his claim in early conversations with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Minority Whip Jon Kyl. "I already told them, you know, `I got here with the help of a close group of friends and very little...

    Journey to Rome ^ | 07/22/2009 | kevinrbranson
    The papacy is among the most misunderstood and therefore wrongly hated institutions in all the world, much like the Catholic Church. I typically cringe when a Protestant pastor or leader decides to step up and call out or denounce the Pope for no good reason, simply on Protestant principal, objecting to the office as they do more so than the man himself, or any sin on his part. Certainly the man who holds the office is not beyond sin, or legitimate criticism, but the criticisms of modern day Popes tend not to be made on the basis of his personal...

    Does anyone have the specific text of what Whoopie Goldberg said at the 'John John' fundraiser the other night? I know that Chevy Chase called President bush a liar. Jon Bon Jovi called him a thug. Whoopie compared President Bush to her anatomy. Despite the fact that the Friday New York Post and New York Times quoted the comments and how while holding a wine bottle Whoopi Goldberg made crude sexual references about the President’s last name and her “bush,” U.S. Democratic presidential candidate U.S. Senator John Kerry (news - web sites) (D-MA) (R) is joined onstage by singer Jackson...

    Disinformation Fuels Ethnic, Religious and Ideological Conflicts, Warns PopeVATICAN CITY, JAN. 24, 2003 ( In his message for World Communications Day 2003, John Paul II highlights the grave responsibility of the media to promote peace. The "media often do render courageous service to the truth, but sometimes they function as agents of propaganda and misinformation in the service of narrow interests, national, ethnic, racial and religious prejudices, material greed, and false ideologies of various kinds," the papal message states. "It is imperative that the pressures brought to bear on the media to err in such ways be resisted first of...

    The Green Leaf Party leadership was hosted by the US Embassy on Thursday to enable the embassy political staff to get to know the party's ideas and plans if it is elected to the Knesset. No. 2 on the Green Party list, Canadian born Dan Goldenblatt said he was buoyed by the invitation, since the embassy usually only invites parties that are already in Knesset. Goldenblatt said the meeting focused mainly on the party's cannabis legalization views and its environmental platform. He said the US officials were interested in knowing whether the party supports other drugs besides cannabis. Green Leaf...

    (Reuters) - President Bush delivered a New Year's Eve warning on Tuesday that any attack on the United States by Iraq or a group working on its behalf could cripple the U.S. economy. But as U.N. arms inspectors searched more suspect sites in Iraq, Bush told reporters near his ranch in Crawford, Texas that he still hoped the standoff with Baghdad could be resolved peacefully.
