    In a bow to the huge U.S. Hispanic population and the Catholic Church's advocacy of immigration, Pope Francis plans to give his Washington Mass Sept. 23 in Spanish, according to Cardinal Donald William Wuerl. "The Mass is going to be in Spanish," Wuerl said Wednesday while previewing the pope's trip to reporters. "It's a recognition of how large the Hispanic population in the United States is," said Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington. "And he's coming as the first pope from the New World and the predominant language in this hemisphere is Spanish," added Wuerl of the Argentine-born pope. Francis, meanwhile, will...

    Donald Trump is "emasculating" former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush with his attacks and his performance in state and national polling, prominent Republican strategist Steve Schmidt said Monday. "Look, Jeb Bush was a very successful governor, he's a thoughtful man, he was a good, conservative governor. But every day, Donald Trump is emasculating Jeb Bush, and Republican primary voters are not going to default to the establishment candidate who is being weakened by these attacks that go unresponded to." -snip- Breaking down the results of the latest Iowa polling on MSNBC's Morning Joe, Schmidt remarked upon the strong performance of candidates...

    Alternate headline: “Trump rises 10 more points in latest GOP poll.”I’ll say this much for Jeb answering questions in Spanish. If nothing else, it’s a case of him actually following his strategy of “losing the primary to win the general,” an approach he’s moved away from as the Bush/Trump war has developed. Speaking Spanish to reporters when conservatives are screaming that he’s a pro-amnesty sellout is as clear an example of positioning for the general irrespective of primary dynamics as there is. And if, in spite of everything, he ends up winning the nomination anyway, half the people on...

    Donald Trump has taken many positions that annoy conservatives and some that infuriate conservatives; but on the issues that matter most: securing the border, making America respected and feared and stabilizing our economy, his positions are quite appealing. Therefore, with nothing left to throw at him, the GOPe’s personal choice for president, Jeb Bush, has decided that voters can be swayed away from Trump and toward him by showing us film clips of statements Trump made up to several years ago. Making believe (at least I hope so) that they don’t understand why Trump the Businessman would say things that...

    Jeb Bush considers himself to be “the most pro-life governor in modern times,” but pro-life advocates are pushing him to support a more aggressive agenda on abortion if he runs for president in 2016, with one group telling IJReview that they “don’t believe that he has gone far enough.”At the same time, the number of abortions in Florida rose during Bush’s tenure (January 5, 1999 – January 2, 2007). In 1998, the total number of abortions for the state was 82,335, according to the Florida Vital Statistics annual report. That number continued to rise until it peaked at 95,586 in...

Either NC is an outlier or the mood has changed nationally because Republicans across America now prefer him to either of those candidates — and not narrowly either. He leads Rubio by eight when voters are forced to choose between them and Walker by 14. As for Jeb Bush, gadzooks:Jeb’s got another month to turn things around before the donor class heads for the lifeboats, I think. There is one candidate tested who...

Shouldn't he be trying to pick off support from Walker, Rubio, Kasich…?— Amanda Carpenter (@amandacarpenter) September 1, 2015 Why would the establishment’s guy aim his fire at Mr. Populism now? He’s better off trying to elbow Walker, Rubio, and especially Kasich out of the race early, knowing that Republicans who hate Trump will eventually line up behind whoever’s still left in the center. Jeb thinks he can win a “Trump vs. Not Trump” race — and frankly, given the mood of voters, that may be...

While the findings at the top of the poll are what we've come to expect from the Republican field - Donald Trump and Ben Carson - securing the top spots - what is more surprising is to find beltway-favored candidates Chris Christie and Rand Paul floundering at the bottom with barely any support. The poll also shows the tea party character of the Republican Party, with strong birther views and a dubious grasp of some key...

    I have an idea for a funny TV campaign ad about Jeb Bush. Below is the script and as you can see, it is easy to produce. It is a parody of the 1984 Reagan campaign ad "The Bear" which you can see HERE. My ad is called "The Tortoise" and is based on the fact that is how Jeb Bush refers to himself. It also references Donald Trump calling Jeb "low-energy." So here goes: [We see a tortoise crawling slowly through the woods.] NARRATOR: There is a tortoise in the woods.

    Congratulations to Univision’s Jorge Ramos on winning Victim Apprentice! You succeeded in pouting and shouting your way to the spotlight. Victim Apprentice is a real reality show hosted by Donald Trump—without Trump realizing he’s hosting it. Contestants are C-level celebrities who crave attention but lack talent. Desperate for a career boost, they metaphorically throw themselves in front of Trump’s car as he cruises down the highway—forcing him to slam on the breaks and bump into them. It’s a Trump Bump. It’s akin to how Hollywood celebrities used to beg the late comedian Joan Rivers to work them into her jokes....

    Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump released a chilling video Monday attacking opponent Jeb Bush for once suggesting that undocumented immigrants entered the United States as "an act of love." The 15-second video, which Trump posted to Instagram and Twitter, begins with the text: "Jeb Bush's Thoughts on Illegal Immigration." It plays sound of Bush, a former Florida governor, saying of undocumented immigrants, "Yes, they broke the law, but it's not a felony. It's an act of love." Over the sound of Bush talking, with harrowing music playing, the Trump video flashes mug shots of Francisco Sanchez, who was charged in...

    Via William Jacobson of Legal Insurrection, who calls this “Willie Horton part two.”Trump clearly does mean to imply that murder is what Bush has in mind when he talks about “acts of love,” which of course is false. The lawbreaking that Jeb’s talking about in the ad is a reference to crossing the border because you can’t find work to feed your family back home. You can read the “act of love” comment in context here. And here’s the thing: If you do, you’ll see that Bush wanted people to notice it and remember it. “I’m going to say...

After Bush's speech, hecklers from a group called "Black Lives Matter" caused Bush to simply leave the scene. When Trump opened his question-and-answer period by pointing to someone in the audience who had a question, a Hispanic immigration activist who had not been called on simply stood up and started haranguing. Trump told the activist to sit down because someone else had been...

    govtslaves ^ | August 31 2015 | Steve Straehley
    Students in South Dakota will now graduate from high school without studying early American history, under new teaching guidelines adopted by the state. After a year of deliberations, the state Board of Education adopted new curriculum standards that no longer require instructors to teach the first 100 years of U.S. history. Such milestone events and developments as the Revolutionary War and the drafting of the U.S. Constitution could be completely ignored. Cutting out early U.S. history in 11th grade hurts the ability of students to “think historically” when they reach higher education, according to a letter sent to the state...

Jeb Bush with 22% support, followed by Scott Walker with 11%, Marco Rubio with 9% and Donald Trump a distant fourth place with 8% support. The poll was conducted from July 14-21, meaning it was well before the debate aired to record ratings on Fox News.

It guarantees citizenship to babies born in the U.S., even if their parents are in the U.S. illegally. “Donald Trump is wrong on this issue and on his views of the 14th Amendment,” Gilmore said in a statement. “I challenge Donald Trump to debate ‘mano a mano’ on this issue.

    In a challenging field of competitors, Fox News Channel’s Andrew Napolitano has a strong entry for the most laughable legal analysis of the Indiana religious-freedom law. In an April Fool’s Day op-ed that he evidently means to be taken seriously, Napolitano argues that state Religious Freedom Restoration Act laws are unconstitutional. Napolitano’s core claim is that the Supreme Court, in its 1997 ruling in Boerne v. Flores, ruled that the 1993 federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act is unconstitutional. In Boerne the Court ruled that Congress lacked the constitutional power to apply the federal RFRA against the states. Napolitano accurately summarizes...

    Real estate mogul Donald Trump is dominating polls and capturing headlines in the Republican presidential race, but rival Jeb Bush is still the favorite of traders in political prediction markets. While Bush has been eclipsed by Trump in opinion polls, the former Florida governor is riding high with online traders who give him a 40 percent chance to capture the party's presidential nomination, according to prediction market aggregator PredictWise.com. Florida Senator Marco Rubio is a distant second with a 15 percent chance, and Trump has risen to third in recent weeks with 14 percent, according to PredictWise, which aggregates about a...

    Given the opportunity to get to the White House, presidential candidate Jeb Bush would fight to grant Dreamers a path to citizenship while working to fix the broken immigration system in America. “I, as President, I would go to congress and change the law to give them not a residency but citizenship,” Bush said in Spanish during a meeting attended by this writer.

  • Donald Trump trounces GOP field, Biden leads general election match-ups (Quinnipiac)

    The Quinnipiac University poll, released Thursday, also shows Donald Trump smashing the GOP presidential competition garnering 28% support from registered Republican voters in the 17-member field. The real estate mogul's closest competitor is retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, who tallies 12%. Just 7% said they would vote for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, a record low since November 2013. Those results show just how far both Trump -- now the Republican front-runner -- and Bush -- the old one -- have come. Bush led national polls for much of the first half of 2015, but was quickly dislodged by Trump, after...
  • Exclusive: GOP Leadership Ignores Immigration Entirely in Town Hall Talking Points

    Republican legislators have gotten their messaging instructions from their top leaders: Tout unpopular free-trade measures during the August recess, ignore popular curbs on the migration that saps Americans’ wages. Breitbart News has exclusively obtained an internal August recess messaging instruction set for Republican legislators produced by Sen. John Thune (R-SD) 52% , who orchestrates the GOP Senators’ PR pitch. This 20-page messaging instruction manual seems to confirm prior reports by Breitbart News that Republican Congressional leadership has no plans to enact popular immigration reforms to curb large-scale migration. Each August, Senators and Congressmen return home to listen to constituents’ concerns...
  • Trump questions why Lehman Brothers paid Jeb Bush '$1.3 million a year for a no-show job'

    The Week ^ | August 27th, 2015 | Becca Stanek
    Donald Trump's latest comments earned him a rebuke from a Jeb Bush spokesman for "trafficking in false conspiracy theories" about the former investment bank Lehman Brothers, where Bush worked for a stint after leaving the governor's office in Florida in 2007. Amid Trump's 33 attacks against the Bush family in a 35-minute interview with The Washington Post, he managed numerous times to drop his suspicions that Bush's high salary from Lehman was a "reward for helping direct Florida state funds to the firm, whose collapse in 2008 helped kick off the Great Recession," The Post reports. "That’s a Hillary Clinton...

    To support his insane interpretation of the post-Civil War amendments as granting citizenship to the kids of illegal aliens, Fox News' Bill O'Reilly is now taking job applications for the nonexistent -- but dearly hoped-for -- Jeb! administration, live, during his show. (Apparently my debate with O'Reilly will be conducted in my column, Twitter feed and current bestselling book, Adios, America, against the highest-rated show on cable news.) Republicans have been out of the White House for seven long years, and GOP lawyers are getting impatient. So now they're popping up on Fox News' airwaves, competing to see who can...

    No one ever assumed the Republican presidential nomination was going to be smooth sailing, with 17 announced candidates ranging from all walks of public and private life vying for the prize. But the candidacy, and we use that term loosely, of Donald Trump has changed the landscape in a way few could have imagined. Trump’s presence thus far has muted the inevitability of establishment star Jeb Bush — a good thing, in our estimation, despite the insistence of some Trump supporters that our criticism of The Donald automatically means we favor the heir to the Bush Dynasty. Unfortunately, it has...

    CNN ^ | August 26 2015 | Jeff Simon,
    In a speech in Iowa on Tuesday night, Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump -- who has regularly promoted his negotiating skills as a selling point for his presidency -- used broken English to briefly impersonate Asian negotiators. "When these people walk into the room, they don't say, 'Oh hello, how's the weather? It's so beautiful outside. How are the Yankees doing? They're doing wonderful, that's great," Trump said, to some laughter from the crowd. "They say, 'We want deal!'"

    Ben Turner: Yes In the Republican Party’s "autopsy" of why they lost the 2012 presidential election, they noted a need for the party to reach out to minorities and younger voters, two groups they had limited support from. Little did they know, they would have not one but two young Hispanic candidates competing for their party’s nomination in 2016. Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are not only the same age and Hispanic — their entire biographies are remarkably similar. Both Cruz and Rubio claim Cuban ancestry, both have law degrees and both served in state politics before running for and...
