    During a portion of an interview set to air on Saturday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Axe Files,” former Florida Governor and 2016 presidential candidate Jeb Bush praised some of President Trump’s policies, but criticized his foreign policy approach as a “really dangerous” one that has undermined trust in the U.S. and “emboldened” its enemies.
  • Trump has made Kate Steinle’s case about immigration. It’s not.

    Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, the immigrant who entered the United States illegally and was charged with murdering California resident Kate Steinle in 2015, was found not guilty Thursday by a San Francisco jury. President Trump, who has used Steinle’s death to promote harsh immigration policies, quickly responded by calling for a border wall, adding that the “Steinle killer came back and back over the weakly protected Obama border, always committing crimes and being violent.” These claims are just not true. In reality, the case highlights how much border security has improved and how little a threat undocumented immigrants pose. From...

    Former President George W. Bush and his father, former President George H.W. Bush, both criticize President Trump in a new book to be released this month, with George W. Bush admitting that, despite Trump’s political affiliation, he’s worried “that I will be the last Republican president.” George H.W. Bush also calls Trump a “blowhard” in the book, “The Last Republicans,” by Mark K. Updegrove, which was previewed by The New York Times and CNN on Friday. "I don't like him. I don't know much about him, but I know he's a blowhard. And I'm not too excited about him being a leader,” the...

    The Sheriff’s Office in Greenville County, South Carolina, has confirmed that immigration services determined a man accused of shooting and killing a local high school girl was in the U.S. illegally. Officials arrested 19-year-old Daniel De Jesus Rangel Sherrer and charged him with the murder of 18-year-old Diana Martinez-Gonzalez, who was found shot to death last week in a patch of woods along the 400 block of Saluda Dam Road in Easley, South Carolina. Deputies said they received a call from a friend of the victim who was “frantic” over the crime, according to Fox Carolina. At a recent press...

    The man and the woman, who have not been identified, were walking on Claflin Street on the night of March 13 when they were allegedly approached by the men. One offered them a beer, while another took out a condom, officials said, according to The Metro West Daily News. Soon, officials said, the men grabbed the woman and physically detained the man. ...Ariel is accused of head-butting the boyfriend multiple times and trying to stab him with a knife to prevent him from stopping the alleged sexual assault.

  • Jeb Bush joins the Ford Edsel and New Coke as historic marketing flops

    There is an old axiom in marketing: Good advertising makes a bad product fail faster. If you doubt that, may I submit Exhibit A: The 2016 campaign for the Republican nomination for President of Jeb Bush. It now joins the likes of the Ford Edsel and Coca-Cola's "New Coke" as a bona-fide marketing flop of an enormous magnitude. In each case, be it Edsel, New Coke or Jeb!, logic dictated a winner. Research for all three concluded a marketplace that was theirs for the taking. All three were rooted in strong family brand equity and even carried the brand name...

    U.S. authorities say a Brazilian man tried to sneak into the country from Mexico by hiding in a gasoline tank. Customs and Border Protection says inspectors found the 38-year-old inside the modified tank of a 2001 Toyota Sequoia early Tuesday at a crossing in Calexico, California. An imaging device spotted anomalies in the SUV's gas tank and backseats. ...

    Republican presidential hopeful John Kasich said on Saturday that he will drop out of the race if he doesn't win his home state of Ohio. "I will beat Donald Trump in Ohio, and that will be the beginning of a new day," Kasich told a crowd in Nashville, according to the New York Times. "Some of the other candidates, if they can't win their home state, they got to get out, OK?" he added. "If I don't win my home state, I'll get out. But you know what? I'm going to win Ohio." The remark was a dig at his...

    Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, whose own quest for the GOP presidential nomination ended unsuccessfully, on Thursday called Donald Trump a "nut job" who likely will win the party's nod, but lose in November's general election. "He's just generally a loser as a person and a candidate," the South Carolina senator told reporters, adding, "You can't nominate a nut job and lose, and expect it doesn't have consequences." Asked whether he'd endorse the billionaire businessman if nominated, Graham said, "I've got a ticket on the Titanic. So I am like on the team that bought a ticket on the Titanic after...

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, once considered the Republican Party's most likely presidential nominee, is ending his campaign after a dismal showing in South Carolina's primary. "The people of Iowa and New Hampshire and South Carolina have spoken, and I really respect their decision, so tonight I am suspending my campaign," he told backers in the Palmetto State. Bush, who entered the race with great fanfare and trumpeted massive fundraising numbers early in his campaign, was ultimately weighed down by Republicans' concerns about continuing the political dynasty of his father and brother.

    Jeb Bush's brother, the former president, his sister-in-law, the former first lady, his mother, his sister, another brother, and of course his wife and children have come to South Carolina, where George W. Bush's political fortunes were made, in hopes of vaulting Jeb back into the Republican presidential race. But with poll after poll showing Bush hovering around 10 percent - fighting with John Kasich for fourth place — that looks less and less likely every hour. So it wasn't surprising that there was a big media turnout at Bush's townhall here in Columbia Thursday. Yes, there's plenty of press...

    Although the decision to inform a workforce of 1,400 employees that they'll soon be losing their jobs to Mexico is an admirable one from the standpoint of candor, it hardly makes for a good recipe for workplace morale. A cell phone video taken at Carrier Air Conditioner in Indianapolis shows the exact moment that the plant and union workers were told that the company had decided to shift production south of the border. "The best way to stay competitive and protect the business for longterm is to move production from our facility in Indianapolis to Monterrey, Mexico," says the company...

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, appearing weary of spending his interview time discussing rival Marco Rubio, told "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace he isn't privy to the meetings of the press that have declared the Florida senator a big winner in the GOP presidential race. "Chris, there is some secret squirrel meeting that you guys get to where you decide who wins and who loses," Bush said on the program Sunday morning, a day after the latest GOP debate. "Marco Rubio came in third place in Iowa, and he was coronated. I can't control that. I'm just going to...

    Jeb Bush said on Saturday that people who have a problem voting for him because of his last name "need to get therapy." The former Florida governor has struggled to gain traction in the Republican presidential race in part because many voters are leery of electing three presidents from the same family. "The Bush thing, people are just going to have to get over it, alright?" a defiant Bush said at a townhall gathering at the McKelvie Intermediate School gym here ahead of tonight's GOP debate. -snip- "I got no problems with this, and people that do, they either need...

    (CNN)--How much does Lindsey Graham dislike Ted Cruz? Count the ways. On the question of foreign policy, the Texas senator is "just as wrong as Obama, if not worse," Graham told CNN's Wolf Blitzer on Thursday. "In Ted Cruz's world, dictators do very well," he continued, comparing his colleague's foreign policy to that of Ron Paul, the former congressman, Republican presidential candidate and long-time leading libertarian. Asked why his fellow senators are reputed to have such a distaste for Cruz, Graham accused the winner of the Iowa GOP caucuses of being an "opportunist" to his core -- one who "gets...

    Barbara Bush, who has been speaking out for her son as he campaigns for President in New Hampshire ahead of Tuesday's primary, said she thinks Jeb Bush is "too polite." "He's almost too polite," she said during an interview with CBS on Thursday. "I don't advise him, but if I gave him advice: I would say, 'Why don't you interrupt like the other people do?'" Barbara Bush, who also described her son as dependable and "relatively funny," clarified that she thinks he should interrupt more during the Republican debates, which have often been dominated by Donald Trump. "I've gotten better...

    My life changed forever when I was a young man on an exchange program in León Guanajuato, Mexico. Across a plaza, I saw a girl. For me, it was love at first sight. From the moment I got to know her, I knew that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her. In the years ahead, whether I was changing baby diapers in Caracas, Venezuela, building a business in Miami or leading a state in Tallahassee, Columba has been with me, my best friend in all of life’s challenges and joys. Together, we have built a family...
