  • Mark Levin Sends Warning to Trump and Rubio

    The Right Scoop ^ | 11/13/15 | Mark Levin
    Mark Levin gave a stern warning to both Donald Trump over his recent attacks on Ben Carson and Marco Rubio for trying to smear Ted Cruz on the Gang of 8 immigration bill, telling them both that their attacks are unacceptable to him. He told Trump that if he continued these reckless personal assaults on Carson, he’d have to affirmatively oppose him. He pretty much said the same to Rubio, pointing out that he simply can’t accept Rubio’s smear attacks on Ted Cruz and that it was his decision to support the Gang of 8 and he would have to...
  • Will Donald Trump drive Miami Cuban Americans from GOP? New poll says yes

    Miami Herald ^ | PATRICIA MAZZEI
    Donald Trump is the catalyst who could force a decisive break between Miami-Dade Countys influential Cuban-American voters and the Republican Party, a new poll has found. Local Cuban Americans dislike Trump so much and are increasingly so accepting of renewed U.S.-Cuba ties pushed by Democratic President Barack Obama that Trumps likely presidential nomination might accentuate the voters political shift away from the GOP, according to the survey shared with the Miami Herald and conducted by Dario Moreno, a Coral Gables pollster and a Florida International University associate politics professor...

    Politico reported today on a Florida poll conducted for a business group in the state that shows Hillary Clinton beating Donald Trump by 13 points and Ted Cruz by nine. Why is that important? Because if Clinton wins Florida and carries the 19 states (plus D.C.) that have voted for the Democratic presidential nominee in each of the last six elections, she will be the 45th president. It's that simple. Politico reported today on a Florida poll conducted for a business group in the state that shows Hillary Clinton beating Donald Trump by 13 points and Ted Cruz by nine....

    The Hill ^ | Philip N. Diehl
    Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) has run a brilliant campaign, and if it were not for Donald Trump, he'd probably be on the verge of wrapping up the Republican nomination by now. The Texas firebrand knew long before others that the party's primary schedule and delegate allocation rules played to his advantage, not to an establishment candidate like former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. From his arrival in the Senate, Cruz has bent the political space-time continuum around himself by demonstrating GOP leaders' inability to govern effectively or deliver on their promises to conservatives.

    A black doctor who was fired for supposedly inflammatory sermons unrelated to his medical work filed a lawsuit against the state of Georgia on Wednesday, claiming religious discrimination. This is particularly ironic, considering the governor of that state recently vetoed a religious liberty bill.Dr. Eric Walsh previously served on President Obama's Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS, was a board member of the Latino Health Collaborative, and started California's first city-run dental clinic for low-income families dealing with AIDS. Nevertheless, Walsh was fired only one week after being hired by Georgia's Department of Public Health. Right before Walsh was terminated, the...

But the senator also made it clear that the issue is not one of major national importance, as far as he is concerned: All I can say is that the only bathroom I can control is in my office, and you can use the bathroom in my office without bringing your birth certificate.

    GOP front-runner Donald Trump says he'd like to bring Florida Sen. Marco Rubio into his campaign as part of his effort to unify the party. Trump already has the support of two of his vanquished foes: New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson. "Frankly, Marco I'd love to have involved," Trump said Thursday on Fox News Channel's "Hannity." "This party has to unite," Trump said. "Then you're going to have the House and Senate." Rubio dropped out of the race after losing his home state of Florida, but has yet to endorse anyone. Trump also responded to...

    Many conservatives, including me, thought nothing but the best about Dr. Ben Carson's run for the White House...until now. Recently, Dr. Carson has suggested that we need to get rid of the Electoral College because it disregards the "will of the people." Underlying this proposal is the idea that pure, national democracy is the best form of government. Dr. Carson displayed shocking ignorance of American history when he told Fox News: "When the Electoral College was put in place, a lot of people did not know what was going on. They had no idea who was running or what the...

    Florida may prove crucial to Donald Trumps presidential hopes if the Republican nomination race goes to a contested convention. Under the states GOP rules, all of the 99 delegates Trump received when he won Floridas March 15 primary must vote for him through the first three nominating ballots at a contested convention. That makes Florida unique. Thirty-one states and territories require Republican delegates to support the winner of a given primary or caucus only for the first ballot, according to the Republican National Committee. Seven require delegates to back the primary or caucus winner for the first two ballots. The...

After dropping out of the race for the Republican nomination Carson, a former neurosurgeon and promotional speaker, endorsed Trump, calling him a fellow outsider.

Lied about Ben Carson to steal a win in Iowa; lied about being the best for the GOP when polls show he cant even beat Hillary Clinton; his TV ad about John Kasich lied. Stations had to pull it off the air.If Ted Cruzs mouth is moving, hes lying, the ad continues.

Now sure, when you endorse someone, its fair that people ask you to defend that persons positions, records, public statements, etc. And Donald Trump provides plenty of material for people to ask about. But when Dr. Carson went on The View last week, he didnt get asked about anything Trump has actually done or said. Instead, Whoopi Goldberg put him on the spot by trying...

    The primary component of GOP presidential candidates health policy proposals is to repeal Obamacare. Once GOP frontrunner Trump released his plan, the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget took notice and did an analysis of the likely fiscal effects from Trumps plan. Presumably, these fiscal effects would also apply to the other Republican candidates who also support repealing Obamacare. The Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget (CRFB) is a budget watchdog group that began 35 years ago. For the past few years it has been housed with the neo-Democratic think tank, New America. The two organizations parted ways over the...

    What bothers me most is that Republicans don’t seem to be learning anything from Trumpism. Jeb Bush and Trump were the two polar opposites ‎of this election. Bush was obsessed with raising money and spent all his time pulling in dollars six figures at a time. His idea of a political rally was to go to a posh country-club home, chat with 30 to 50 donors and swoop up checks with lots of zeroes. Trump’s events attract actual voters in the tens of thousands. Bush wouldn’t have won if he’d had a billion dollars. Trump challenges Republican and conservative orthodoxy...

The businessman's remarks come a day after news emerged that Graham, a vocal opponent of Trump, would...
