    A good looking Indian-American governor decides to run for president. He's a Rhodes scholar. He’s the first Indian-American ever to run for the nation's highest office. If he'd been a Democrat, they'd have cancelled the primaries and declared him the nominee. He'd have had so much press coverage that the national news media would have gone into full TMZ mode and the average person on the street would know that his given name is Piyush.

    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."

    "This is not my time," Jindal told Fox News' Bret Baier. "I've come to the realization that this is not my time. So I've come here to announce that I am suspending my campaign for president of the United States." Jindal, 44, was once seen as a rising star in the Republican Party and a strong contender for the White House. The Brown University graduate and Rhodes Scholar was viewed as a strong voice for a Republican Party looking to reach out to minorities and broaden its base. He rose to prominence at the start of President Barack Obama's first...

    Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal refused to back down on the existence of Muslim "no-go zones" following a speech in London Monday where he called them "startling." Fox News apologized for similar on-air claims following the attacks on the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, stating there was "no credible information to support" that "no-go zones," or areas where non-Muslims were not welcome, existed at all in London.

    Ted Cruz had a terrific night. He had a stand-out answer on immigration and wages, and made his own fortune by getting into an argument with John Kasich on bank bailouts, enunciating the anti-bailout position forcefully and repeatedly (although I don't really believe he wouldn't bail out a major financial institution in the midst of a financial panic if he were president). He was pointed, eloquent, and, of course, very conservative. Marco Rubio was very good, as well. But I thought Rubio was slightly better than Cruz last time, and that Cruz was slightly better this time. Rubio just felt...

Chris Christie showed "favoritism toward well-connected real estate developers." Donald Trump supports "massive tariffs that would damage the American economy." And Ted Cruz? Well, he came out practically unscathed in the 50-page scorecard, Politico reports. In fact, the senator received praise in many of the six categories the Heritage Foundation measures, including growth, opportunity, civil society, limited government, favoritism, and national security. His only major critique was that too often he adopted "sound policies advanced...

    I was just watching a portion of "This Week with George S", which was guest hosted today. She had Bobby Jindal on, and lobbed several tough questions at him. He hit them right out of the park. She stayed focused on being critical of Hillary, and refused to be critical of Donald Trump. He just refused to be goaded into an anti-Trump position, but was strongly for America and I was very, very impressed. Strongly for controlling immigration. Very well done, Mr. Jindal. Good job. Gotta pay more attention to Jindal.

    Bobby Jindal earned a poll surge today with a smart piece of political jujitsu. Unlike most politicos, Jindal understands that a major source of liberal power is their ability to set the narrative. Since progressives control most of the media and pop culture, they set the terms of the debate. Ferguson, Missouri, has been wracked by violence for a year due to a coordinated lie accusing a racist cop of gunning down an innocent black teen with his hands up, pleading dont shoot! The press lionized a Texas backbencher for bravely defending womens health, even though Wendy Davis was blocking...

    The Politico ^ | August 21, 2015 | Eliza Collins
    Scott Walker just cant make up his mind on birthright citizenship. Im not taking a position one way or the other, Walker said in an interview with CNBCs John Harwood. Im saying that until you secure the border and enforce the laws, any discussion about anything else is really looking past the very things we have to do. Harwood then observed that Walker seemed threatened by Donald Trumps hard-line stance on immigration, and was adjusting his rhetoric accordingly. On Sunday, Trump announced a $166 billion immigration plan that includes a nearly 2,000-mile wall across the U.S.-Mexico border, the deportation of...

    Louisiana governor and GOP presidential candidate Bobby Jindal will counter pro-Planned Parenthood protests today with a protest of his own -- in the form of a continuous video loop of the seven undercover videos showing illegal abortions and fetal harvesting by Planned Parenthood clinics. The videos, some of which include graphic footage of abortion workers sorting through the dismembered arms, legs and other body parts of aborted babies as old as 20-weeks gestation, will show on an outdoor movie theater outside the Louisiana governor's mansion. The pro-Planned Parenthood protest is set to take place at 4:30 CT. The screening of...
  • Walker, Rubio, and Jindal Lead the Way on Replacing Obamacare

    The National Review ^ | August 18, 2015 | James C. Capretta
    Perhaps today will mark the beginning of a new phase in the long campaign for the GOP nomination for president in 2016. Thats possible because two of the leading candidates Wisconsin governor Scott Walker and Florida senator Marco Rubio have offered serious plans for replacing Obamacare in its entirety. (In Senator Rubios case, he reiterated in an op-ed the principles of a plan he outlined several months ago.) They, along with Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal, are now the candidates who can speak most credibly about whats wrong with Obamacare, because they have actual plans to do something about...
  • Under assault, Planned Parenthood blames Jindal for making a shambles of health care

    During Bobby Jindals two terms as governor, his administration has blocked Medicaid expansion in Louisiana, cut public health care funding to the bone, closed mental health facilities, closed the Baton Rouge General-Mid City emergency room, closed the publicly funded Earl K. Long Medical Center in Baton Rouge, and has not adequately funded the new University Medical Center in New Orleans. A 50-state study puts Jindals Louisiana in second-to-last place for childrens health outcomes. Under Jindals tenure as governor, Louisiana has had some of the highest rates of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis and HIV/AIDS in the nation. Teen pregnancy and teen...

    RedState ^ | August 11, 2015 | Leon H. Wolf
    The major takeaway any Republican pundit should gather from the current GOP primary polling and from the reception of the crowd at the RedState Gathering is that Republican voters are looking for someone who will pick a fight. Over the course of the RedState Gathering, we were privileged to be given personal access to many of the candidates, most of whom allowed unfettered access to questions and were extremely gracious with their time. During the course of asking these questions, I attempted to prod the candidates to determine their willingness to take on an actual fight - both against Democrats,...

    Indian-origin Republican presidential aspirant Bobby Jindal on tuesday attacked Hillary Clinton, saying the Democratic frontrunner is just a single email away from prison after she signed a sworn declaration that she has turned in all of her government emails. "Hillary Clinton is already under investigation by the FBI. Now she's signed a sworn affidavit to a federal judge, under penalty of perjury, that she has handed over all of her government business emails," Mr Jindal said on his campaign trail in Iowa. "Which means that she's one email away from prison time. She'd better pray the Chinese government doesn't do...
