  • Donald Trump Joins CNN’s Democratic Debate Via Live Tweets – Update

    Deadline Hollywood ^ | October 13, 2015 | Lisa de Moraes
    Donald Trump handed CNN a ratings gift very early this morning – and another reason to demand that CNN pay him – when he announced he will live tweet the network’s Democratic debate tonight. News of the GOP front-runner’s plans had pundits adjusting upwards their ratings forecasts for tonight’s debate. Yesterday conventional wisdom had the debate clocking in at 8-million-ish, mirroring Dem debates’ best numbers in the last presidential election cycle. This morning, the 12-15M-ish forecast yesterday by one or two media navel lint gazers...

  • Ted Cruz – The Reality of The Situation…

    10/13/2015 2:25:15 PM PDT · by 100American · 6 replies
    “Polarizing” is a descriptive term used by a pontificating media to disparage various elements they find antithetical to their own worldview. Generally, when the term is used it is wrongly assigned. However, in the case of Ted Cruz it’s unfortunately accurate. When Jason Johnson sits down to discuss his pathway to the nomination with George Will, it says more about Jason Johnson than it does about those who read Will’s opinion of the aforementioned pathway. What it essentially says is there’s a need to affirm something that isn’t factually supported by any measure of quantifiable empirical evidence. Ted Cruz Value...

You know, Ben Carson has shaken up the political structure with an answer to a question on welfare that is something you and I have known and have believed all of our lives. It's fascinating to me to watch people in public life in media on the Democrat side just react in shock and outrage that anybody thinks this kind of extreme stuff.

    The New York Times ^ | October 13, 2015 | David Brooks
    The House Republican caucus is close to ungovernable these days. How did this situation come about? This was not just the work of the Freedom Caucus or Ted Cruz or one month’s activity. The Republican Party’s capacity for effective self-governance degraded slowly, over the course of a long chain of rhetorical excesses, mental corruptions and philosophical betrayals. Basically, the party abandoned traditional conservatism for right-wing radicalism. Republicans came to see themselves as insurgents and revolutionaries, and every revolution tends toward anarchy and ends up devouring its own. By traditional definitions, conservatism stands for intellectual humility, a belief in steady, incremental...

    Say what you will about Donald Trump, but one thing is clear… he’s a leader. The American people seem to agree. A new CBS poll shows Trump rates heads and shoulders above all other candidates when it comes to strong leadership qualities. Almost two thirds, 65 percent – of Americans say Trump displays strong leadership. Joe Biden (Joe Biden?) comes in second, but a full ten points behind. Hillary Clinton is close behind at 53 percent, followed by Dr. Ben Carson at 51 percent, Carly Fiorina 44 percent and hippie socialist Bernie Sanders in last place at 39 percent. rump...

    The Insured Retirement Institute has concluded, baby boomers "face a dangerous combination of being under-saved and long-lived." The IRI found four in 10 baby boomers have nothing saved for retirement, and 37% of those who do have savings have less than $100,000 put away. This spells trouble for the average 65-year old male and female who have a 50% chance of living until at least 87 and 89, respectively. The IRI says someone who retires at the age of 65 today will need more than $1 million for retirement while someone who waits until age 70 to retire will need...

    "A big part of that stagnancy could be business development, or winning new business in general. The sales culture and sales mentality is what leads to the upper echelons of compensation and status at firms, and it could be that women aren't successfully breaking into those roles. What we can say from evidence in the study is that new adviser positions that carve out these responsibilities, such as business development officer or business development specialist, are overwhelmingly male (96% for partners and 72% for employees), which underscores the fact that these responsibilities or opportunities aren't necessarily being embraced by or...

    When House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy dropped out of the race for House Speaker, it opened it up to a new field of Republican Representatives being touted for the position. Most of the media's attention has been on former Vice Presidential candidate and Wisconsin Representative Paul Ryan. Ryan has even earned the endorsement of amnesty advocate Rep. Luis Gutierrez! Ryan's position on immigration is fairly straightforward; he supports work permits and legal status for illegal aliens and he supports massive increases in legal immigration.

In December 2014 CNN ran and episode of Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown filmed in Iran.

    A biblical worldview—the true and historically-based answer to racism It is noteworthy that the abolitionist movement came out of a Christian worldview. The great British anti-slavery advocate, William Wilberforce, believed that all men were created equal and “in the image of God”. Even though the ‘science’ of his day could not account for the similarity of all human beings (in fact, they were more likely to notice the differences), Wilberforce took a stand on the Bible. Yet this view would not be vindicated by science until many years after his death. This is a cautionary lesson for all Christians who...

The event at Western Iowa Tech was an opportunity for Cruz to preach his message, of limited government in a fairly conservative part of the state. Congressman Steve King introduced the Texas Senator, praising Cruz's stance against things like Obamacare and the Iran Deal, but stopping short of fully endorsing him. Cruz says one thing sets him...

    The Windy City is having a very violent year and according to new numbers, Chicago just wrapped up its worst September for homicides since 2002. September was Chicago's deadliest month since 2002, with 60 homicides. Through Sept. 27, homicides and shooting incidents had risen 21 percent from the year-earlier period, Police Department numbers show. Most of the City Council's black aldermen last week called for Emanuel to fire police Superintendent Garry McCarthy, but the mayor said he supports his top cop. So why the increase in violence? Mayor Rahm Emaunel is blaming police hesitation and heavy media scrutiny for criminals...

    WND EXCLUSIVE Obama's U.N. plan: Globalize cops against 'violent extremists' Conservative Christians 'becoming the targets' Published: 7 days ago Leo Hohmann President Obama’s new “Strong Cities Network,” announced with little fanfare last week at the United Nations, appears to be another effort to strip authority from local police departments and to demonize conservative Christians, say advocates of civil and religious liberties. The stated goal of the program is to connect local police departments with their peers around the world in an effort to combat “violent extremism,” according to Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who announced the program to the U.N. on...

    It turns out that American students have something in common with their Latin American counterparts: They don’t learn anything good about America either. “In Latin America children are often exposed to the negative aspects of American history but are seldom exposed to the negative aspects of their own history,” Alejandro Chafuen of the Atlas Economic Research Foundation said at the Philadelphia Society’s regional meeting in Indianapolis last weekend. Chafuen himself hails from Argentina. “In Argentina, at least before the Falklands War, we used to say that we act Italian, speak Spanish and think that we are British.” One-sixth of the...

    Turkey has warned the United States and Russia it will not tolerate Kurdish territorial gains by Kurdish militia close to its frontiers in north-western Syria, two senior officials said. "This is clear cut for us and there is no joking about it," one official said of the possibility of Syrian Kurdish militia crossing the Euphrates to extend control along Turkish borders from Iraq's Kurdistan region towards the Mediterranean coast. Turkey fears advances by Kurdish YPG militia, backed by its PYD political wing, on the Syrian side of its 900 km (560-mile) border will fuel separatist ambitions among Kurds in its...

    EXCERPT "Like many in New Hampshire, Lauren is a student at St. Anselm's who is passionate about and active in politics and attended this event on her own accord," Bush spokeswoman Allie Bradenburger said. "While this question was not sanctioned by the campaign, we can't help but notice Mr. Trump does seem to be very sensitive about being challenged by women." Bush's campaign confirmed to CNN that Batchelder has volunteered at events for the candidate but has never been paid as staff.
