    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said the United States will lose its credibility on human rights if it does not take action against Saudi Arabia after the apparent death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

    Sen. Marco Rubio said Sunday that Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin should not attend an upcoming investment conference in Saudi Arabia amid an ongoing investigation into the country's possible involvement in the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who went missing earlier this month in Turkey. "I don't think he should go," Rubio told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union," adding that he doesn't think any US officials should continue with their usual business in Saudi Arabia until Washington gets to the bottom of Khashoggi's disappearance. "I don't think any of our government officials should be going and pretending...
  • Rubio: Trump must respond with ‘more than words’ over Jamal Khashoggi

    Republican Sen. Marco Rubio said President Trump must respond with more than “just words” if Saudi Arabia is found to be behind the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi or it would undermine the United States’ reputation as a champion of human rights. “I’m glad the president didn’t tie his hands in terms of exactly what we are going to do. But it needs to be very strong and meaningful, it can’t be symbolic, it can’t just be words,” the Florida lawmaker said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.” Trump has threatened “severe consequences” against Saudi Arabia but hasn’t gone...

    They’ve appeared together enough that the jokes about them being running mates in 2020 seem a little less far-fetched and a little more plausible. For his part, Kasich said he’s not ruling anything out at this point — nor is he ruling anything in, for that matter. “It’s great to be here with my running mate,” he joked, generating laughter from the Brookings crowd. “If I was ever going to run with a Republican,” Hickenlooper countered, “He would be the one I’d run with.”

    President Donald Trump has said the US will inflict "severe punishment" on Saudi Arabia if the kingdom is found to be responsible for the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. He said he would be "very upset and angry if that were the case", but ruled out halting big military contracts. Mr. Khashoggi, a critic of the Saudi government, vanished on October 2 after visiting its consulate in Istanbul...…
  • Mitt Romney: I never led the Never Trump movement

    Hot Air ^ | October 13, 2018 | Allahpundit
    He’s asked in the clip below about having led the Never Trump movement, which he denies. And I suppose that’s fair enough: There was no formal Never Trump “leader.” But Romney, as the reigning GOP nominee and the person who delivered the most scathing anti-Trump speech by a Republican during the 2016 cycle, was the closest thing to one. In fact, I take his denial to be aimed not so much at the claim that he led Never Trumpers as at the idea that he even was a Never Trumper.
  • Now for Rent: Email Addresses and Phone Numbers for Millions of Trump Supporters

    MSN News ^ | October 13, 2018 | Kenneth P. Vogel and Maggie Haberman, The New York Times
    Early in his presidential campaign, Donald J. Trump dismissed political data as an “overrated” tool. But after he won the Republican nomination, his team began building a database that offers a pipeline into the heart of the party’s base, a comprehensive list including the email addresses and cellphone numbers of as many as 20 million supporters. Now, consultants close to the Trump campaign are ramping up efforts to put that database — by far the most sought-after in Republican politics — to use, offering it for rent to candidates, conservative groups and even businesses. It is an arrangement that has...

  • Trump’s tariffs on China are doing the exact opposite of what they’re supposed to

    Donald Trump’s tariffs on China are going great, the US president assured the world yesterday. ”Their economy has gone down very substantially,” Trump said on Fox & Friends. The numbers tell a different story. In September, Americans bought $34 billion more worth of Chinese goods than they sold, according to data from China published this morning. That’s the biggest monthly trade surplus the Middle Kingdom has ever run with the US. Please see link, for full article.

    While everyone’s eyes were on now Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s hearings and votes the Republicans grew government. Again.President Donald Trump signed into law the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018 – a law which regulates everything from airline seat sizes to whether people can make cell phone calls on flights (something Jazz wrote in favor of earlier today). The bill also defined exactly what a Lactation Area is (they can’t be in restrooms) and includes money for studies looking at the design specifics of aircraft oxygen and on allergic reactions on board airlines. There’s also a study on what...

    The Resurgent ^ | October 5, 2018 | Erick Erickson
    I have long been critical of Republicans who abandoned principles to stand with Trump and I am as critical of Republicans who abandon principles to oppose Trump. Principle should stay because people go. The Kavanaugh nomination has been clarifying in this regard. Seeing some conservatives willing to aid and abet character assassins because Trump nominated Kavanaugh is disgusting. I find myself in an odd position where, for the first time, I see myself, one of the original so-called “Never Trump conservatives,” voting for President Trump in 2020. I have inevitably concluded at times that Trump would do something to push...

    Mark Levin Okay, ill say it... 9 MINUTES AGO · PUBLIC Let’s stop pretending Susan Collins is a hero and her speech was Churchillian. Many of us were pleasantly surprised Collins did the right thing. Her speech painted Bret Kavanaugh as a bit of an activist. Let’s hope she’s wrong about that. But she came to the same conclusion as all Senate Republicans but Murkowski, i.e., Kavanaugh was the victim of a horrendous smear campaign. A sigh of relief she’s voting for his confirmation, yes. A hero, no.

    WASHINGTON -- President Trump seems convinced that he has found the formula for success in foreign policy: Bully your adversaries, sanction them, squeeze them -- and then flatter them and make a deal. Trump followed this approach with North Korea and he got a showy summit meeting in Singapore in June with Kim Jong Un and a pledge (encouraging but so far undelivered) for denuclearization. He adopted the hard-talk/sweet-talk tactics with Mexico and, eventually, after a long pout, with Canada, and he got a trade deal that's a modest but real improvement over NAFTA.
  • Abortion SCOTUS seat proves the hypocrisy of women

    Women always paint themselves as innocent helpless victims, not responsible for anything bad in their lives, all externalcthings are the cause of their woes. Usually men. All the good stuff though, they happily take credit for. But to abortion and the kavanaugh hearing, we see hypocrisy from women again. Women claim to have no power when it comes to babies. You would think if you believed them every man in the world is responsible for a woman getting an abortion, or not getting one, and they are just doing what the man tells them. In reality men have zero control....

    OTTAWA — From the get-go, the Liberal government’s goal in rewriting NAFTA was to get a “progressive” trade deal for Canada that was “free and fair.” So did it? While there are lots of ways to tally the winners — and losers — in the new United States Mexico Canada Agreement, or USMCA, one is to look at the six objectives that Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland herself articulated on the eve of the renegotiation. [photo caption] As part of the trade deal with the U.S. and Mexico, Canada will ease protections on dairy. [photo credit: CHRISTINNE MUSCHI THE NEW...

More than 350 attorneys made the request in a joint letter sent to the Republican senators, according to the Daily News-Miner.

    Subtle: POTUS Donald Trump said Tuesday he’s supportive of the current FBI probe into allegations of sexual assault leveled at his Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, and for one particular reason only our unconventional president would claim. “I think, actually, this could be a blessing in disguise. Because, having the FBI go out, do a thorough investigation – whether it’s three days or seven days – I think it’s going to be less than a week. But, having them do a thorough investigation, I actually think will be a blessing in disguise. It’ll be a good thing,” he said...

    WASHINGTON — In the days leading up to a public allegation that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh exposed himself to a college classmate, the judge and his team were communicating behind the scenes with friends to refute the claim, according to text messages obtained by NBC News. Kerry Berchem, who was at Yale with both Kavanaugh and his accuser, Deborah Ramirez, has tried to get those messages to the FBI for its newly reopened investigation into the matter but says she has yet to be contacted by the bureau. The texts between Berchem and Karen Yarasavage, both friends of Kavanaugh,...
