  • Paul: U.S. should “absolutely not” monitor mosques, create Muslim database

    cn|2 Pure Politics ^ | 11/22/2015 | Kevin Wheatley
    Calling Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump’s stance on the topic “disqualifying,” Kentucky U.S. Sen. Rand Paul said on CBS’s ‘Face the Nation’ Sunday that he opposed government surveillance at mosques and establishing databases to track Muslims. “Yes we should follow people who are a risk,” Paul said. “Should we talk to their neighbors and friends, should we talk to their imam? Sure, all of that is legitimate, but should we target mosques and have a database of Muslims? “Absolutely not, and I think that’s disqualifying for both Donald Trump and Marco Rubio to say that we’re going to close down...
  • Tough-talking Ted Cruz flies into 2nd place in Iowa polls, largely at Ben Carson's expense

    Fox News Latino ^ | November 23, 2015
    With a world on edge after the coordinated terror attacks in Paris, and as criticism grows louder of the Obama administration’s handling of adversaries such as Iran and Syria, tough talk and defiance have become strong currencies in the presidential race. Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson’s mild-mannered, soft-spoken demeanor – which helped endear him to many voters in the first place – now appears to be working against him, while Sen. Ted Cruz’s tell-it-like-it-is, in-your-face style is now raising his stock. In the crucial state of Iowa, which holds closely-watched caucuses, the event in Paris on Nov. 13 changed many conservatives’...

    Anyone agree that the pollsters should start taking polls with a GOP Ticket VS Hillary. And do all three scenarios. Trump/Cruz, and Rubio and Carson. Odds are that any combination should give Trump and anyone an easy 10 point lead over Hillary. But the one we most want to see is a Trump/Cruz ticket VS Hillary. You all agree we could see another shellacking?

    You shouldn't trust Rubio. Senator Marco Rubio is running for president but he doesn't want you to know about his past views on guns. Take a note at this research on him opposing lawful gun owning. Rubio Favored Restrictions On Florida Gun Owners In His 2000 State House Race, Rubio Supported Waiting Periods On Gun Purchases. "'Background checks are necessary and the sale of guns at shows should be limited,' Garcia said. 'Furthermore, safety locks should be required. I am also against honoring the concealed weapons permits of other states in our state.' Rubio supports 'reasonable restrictions' including background checks...

    Trump's racism is bad for Republicans now, but the eventual wild-eyed nominee will only look moderate in comparison.Since the Donald Trump campaign kicked off with demagoguery about Mexican immigration, political watchers have been on quiet but alert fascism watch, carefully monitoring Trump to see if he steps over the line. You can feel in your bones that Trump and his supporters long for to give into the sweet oblivion of balls-out racism, rather than dealing with the tedious process of carefully measuring the lines so you can toe them without stepping so far over that liberal journalists are freed up...

    “I think it’s just reflective of what’s been going on for the past month or so and the way the race, at least in the establishment lane, has shifted. It’s really Jeb or Marco now.” Thus spoke an “anonymous” Bush donor, quoted in Politico. The edgy and unidentified Bushie inadvertently confessed that all those Establishment types really do consider Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) as one of their own. Apparently his Tea Party upset of then-GOP Establishment Governor Charlie Crist was not what it seemed. Senator Rubio has impressed many on the campaign trail. Without doubt his foreign policy concentration is...

    On November 21 a group of armed protesters surrounded a Irving, Florida, mosque to oppose the pending influx of Syrian refugees and the “Islamization of America.”Some of the protesters had AR-15 rifles slung across their shoulders while others carried bolt action rifles popular for their long range accuracy. They explained that they were not carrying the weapons for offensive purposes, but to defend themselves in the event that things went badly during the protest.According to Fox 4, protest spokesman David Wright said, “We are here protesting Syrian refugees coming to America [and] protesting the Islamization of America.” He is convinced...

    Donald Trump has re-established his commanding lead of the Republican presidential race in a new Washington Post/ABC News poll. If anything, the poll shows that Trump's surge seems to be strong and possibly getting stronger. As the Post points out, the poll comes after a "tumultuous period that has included terrorist attacks in Paris, calls for stepped-up efforts to combat Islamic State militants, a backlash against accepting refugees from Syria, and two Republican debates..." Trump's sizable lead puts him ahead of the popular but controversial Ben Carson. Trump leads the field with 32 percent support among registered Republicans and Republican-leaning...

    For all of the candidates, all of the debates and all of the unpredictability, the race for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016 has taken a clear shape over the past month or so. There is a four-candidate top tier that has separated itself from the rest of the pack. There is then a trio of “if/then” candidates who would need a major mistake or collapse from one of the top four to have a realistic chance at winning. Everyone else running has a puncher’s chance — at best — at being relevant in the nomination fight. Below are my...

    Florida's citrus harvest has plummeted 60 percent from ten years ago, because of citrus greening disease, a bacterial infection that causes trees to produce stunted fruit and eventually die. The disease has also been found in one Los Angeles area orchard, potentially putting California's citrusgroves at risk. Billions of dollars and thousands of jobs are at stake. Introduced and spread by the flying aphid-like Asian citrus psyllid, citrus greening is also called HLB, from the Mandarin word for "yellow dragon disease." It can quickly infest entire orchards, and thus far there is no cure. Infected trees must simply be destroyed....

    A well-connected GOP operative alarmed by the enduring strength of Republican Donald Trump's presidential bid is planning a "guerrilla campaign" backed by secret donors to knock him out of the race. Liz Mair, former online communications director of the Republican National Committee, recently created Trump Card LLC to "defeat and destroy" the celebrity businessman's candidacy, according to a memo obtained by The Wall Street Journal. "In the absence of our efforts, Trump is exceedingly unlikely to implode or be forced out of the race," the Trump Card memo says.

Allowing immigrants into this country when their religion/political ideology is completely hostile to, and incompatible with, the principles upon which American republican self-government is premised makes that first stated purpose totally impossible of fulfillment. As has been stated, correctly, so many times, the Constitution is not a suicide pact.

    Last week in an article titled "Ben Carson Reconsidered," destined for the November 16 print edition of The Weekly Standard, "conservative" pundit William Kristol shows just how willing he is to risk a Hillary Clinton presidency and all its concomitant damage. He's willing to risk such simply to prevent an outsider from ascending to that office. In a two (internet)-page article, Dr. Kristol excoriates Donald Trump while damning Dr. Ben Carson with faint praise. Here is his final statement: So while Carson probably won’t and likely shouldn’t be the nominee, the Republican party is better for his candidacy. And if...

He edges Ben Carson in Iowa half a percentage point, according to the RealClearPolitics average of polls taken there in the last month--statistically insignificant, but evidence that a Trump victory in the nation's first caucus can't be ruled out--and could likely be followed by a blowout victory in New Hampshire.

He's followed by retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson with 19%. In PPP's last poll from early October, Carson had 17% and Trump 27%. This is a positive development for those who want Trump to fail, but it's a far cry from the inevitable Trump collapse many experts predict. If one thing is clear, it's that he certainly has staying power. That doesn't mean he will actually win, but he certainly has a...

Bernie Sanders by 66 percent to 22 percent of the vote in that party’s nomination contest, the poll shows. The survey was conducted Sunday and Monday, in the wake of news about the terrorist attacks in Paris. Among Florida Republican registered voters surveyed, Trump leads with 36 percent, Rubio is at 18...

    Donald Trump is taking it easy on Bobby Jindal, despite being called an "egomaniacal madman" by the Louisiana governor just two months before Jindal decided to withdraw from the 2016 presidential race. "[Jindal] was, you know, a little nasty with me," Trump told CNN Wednesday, less than 24 hours after the two-term governor announced the suspension of his campaign during an appearance on Fox News. "But I think ultimately [he] was very nice," Trump added. "Everyone's nasty to me because they want to get votes."

    Former neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson is leading the race for the Republican presidential nomination among Colorado voters, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday which also finds that he is one of a number of Republicans who would soundly beat Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton in the Centennial State in a general election match-up. In the race for the Republican nomination, the poll finds Carson leads in Colorado with 25 percent of the vote, followed by Florida Sen. Marco Rubio with 19 percent, business mogul Donald Trump with 17 percent, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz with 14 percent, Carly Fiorina...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., November 17, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) - The words of Dr. Ben Carson, and the actions of Gov. Jeb Bush, disqualify them both from serving as president of the United States, a leading pro-life leader said today. "We have seen what it is like to have a president who does not value every life equally, and we certainly do not need another," said Troy Newman, the president of Operation Rescue. "In my opinion, Ben Carson's statement dismissing Terri's life as 'nothing,' and Jeb Bush's failure to take action to save Terri, has disqualified them both from the office of president."...

  • Bobby Jindal becomes the latest Republican to end presidential candidacy

    Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, who campaigned as an unstinting champion of social conservatives but found himself crowded out by other more forceful, dynamic personalities, on Tuesday abruptly ended his bid for the Republican presidential nomination. Jindal, 44, had staked out far-right territory but never gained traction during a primary that’s been dominated by outsiders with similar or more conservative views, particularly Donald Trump and Ben Carson. Jindal noted that the policy papers his campaign had unveiled in recent months, on issues such as energy and education, hadn't resonated with voters.

    Jeb Bush may be low-energy, but when it comes to Syrian refugees, he isn’t low-empathy. Unlike nearly all of his rivals for the Republican presidential nomination, Bush said Tuesday that he would not support efforts to end refugee resettlement.“The answer to this is not to ban people from coming,” Bush told Bloomberg Television’s With All Due Respect. “The answer is to lead, to resolve the problem in Syria.”Bush emphasized that he wanted any refugees resettled in the United States to be rigorously vetted — which is already standard policy in the States — but said support for refugees was “a...

    Ben Carson's remarks on foreign policy have repeatedly raised questions about his grasp of the subject, but never more seriously than in the past week, when he wrongly asserted that China had intervened militarily in Syria and then failed, on national television, to name the countries he would call on to form a coalition to fight the Islamic State. Faced with increasing scrutiny about whether Mr. Carson - who leads in some Republican presidential polls - was capable of leading American foreign policy, two of his top advisers said in interviews with The New York Times that he had struggled...

    MANATEE -- A 45-year-old woman was charged with domestic abuse after running over her ex-husband's foot after an argument about having sex in the rear of a storage unit, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.

    In the wake of the deadly terror attacks in Paris last week, Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush said the U.S. should focus on creating safe havens for Syrian refugees in the region rather than bringing them to the U.S., and that there is a "special important need" to help Syrian Christians. "There should be really thorough screening [of refugees coming to the U.S.] and we should focus on creating safe havens for refugees in Syria rather than bringing them all the way across to the United States," Bush said Monday on "CBS This Morning." "But I do think there is...

    In the aftermath of the series of protests in Paris against occupation by activists and militants, who have grievances, we bring you the French plan for peace, based on France's Mideast policies. It is the only way to solve the problem of ISIS activism in Paris. First, we all agree that territory must not be annexed by force. Therefore, we can also agree that Germany has a moral right to demand the return of Alsace-Lorraine, for the French aggression in 1945 and its consequent occupation must not be rewarded. "A full withdrawal for full peace" should operate here. Further, France...
