    I'll post two links to Leftists going insane at Sen. Cassidy's townhall on the 23rd. One shows the Libtards disrupting the chaplain's opening prayer and another shows them disrupting and refusing to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance.

    Colin Kaepernick’s decision to not stand for the national anthem has inspired two Oakland City Council members to remain seated for the pledge of allegiance. Desley Brooks and Rebecca Kaplan are the latest Oaklanders to follow Kaepernick in protesting oppression of minorities.

    Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg pledges $3bn to rid the world of all disease Marion Dakers AP 21 September 2016 • 8:22pm The Facebook founder and his wife, who  pledged to give away 99pc of their wealth to good causes following the birth of their daughter last year, said the money would be used to assist scientific work and build new research tools. The goal, which they are unlikely to live to see accomplished, is to "cure, prevent or manage all disease" in the next 80 or so years. "So if you even just assume that we'll be able to continue...

    A lot of people aren’t happy that some Republicans have broken their pledge to the GOP. One of those people is RNC head Reince Priebus. Reince is warning those who don’t support Donald Trump they’ll need to watch their backs in the future. Meaning, we’re not going to help you when your election rolls around if you turn your back on us now. Makes sense – for the most part. From Newsmax: Republican National Committee head Reince Priebus says there may be “consequences” in the future for GOP presidential primary candidates who don’t stick with their pledge to support the...

    It’s so great to be here tonight. I am honored to also be joined this evening by Governor Scott Walker, Chairman Reince Priebus, and Mayor Rudy Giuliani. We are at a decisive moment in this election. Last week, I laid out my plan to bring jobs back to our country. Yesterday, I laid out my plan to defeat Radical Islamic Terrorism. Tonight, I am going to talk about how to make our communities safe again from crime and lawlessness. Let me begin by thanking the law enforcement officers here in this city, and across this country, for their service and...

    A State Department spokesperson clarified Thursday that Hillary Clinton’s 2009 ethics pledge—to avoid conflicts of interest with the Clinton Foundation—did not extend to Clinton’s top aides at the Department. Spokesperson Elizabeth Trudeau was asked about recently revealed emails that showed top members of Hillary Clinton’s staff doing favors for Clinton Foundation associates. “I’m not going to speak to specific emails, but I think you guys know State Department officials are regularly in touch with a wide variety of outside individuals and organizations including businesses, nonprofits, NGOs, think tanks,” Trudeau replied. “You don’t feel like there was impropriety in the relationship

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Confronting a "moment of reckoning," Hillary Clinton is casting herself as a unifier for divided times and a tested, steady hand to lead in a volatile world. "We are clear-eyed about what our country is up against," she said in excerpts released ahead of her speech Thursday accepting the Democratic presidential nomination. "But we are not afraid. We will rise to the challenge, just as we always have."

    American Thinker ^ | July 21, 2016 | Howard J. Warner
    The third night of the Republican National Convention provided observers with that moment of true ethics and honor. Governor Kasich has not attended the convention and will not endorse Donald Trump. He claims to be a man of conviction, but what conviction? Or is he a sore loser? What about Governor Jeb Bush, who will not attend? Is he still upset because he was called a loser or low energy? Did he think the $100 million raised by his campaign should ensure his victory? Could they be willing to elect Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump? Would they saddle us with...

    Associated Press ^ | 6/29/16 | BRUCE SHIPKOWSKI
    TRENTON, New Jersey — Republican Gov. Chris Christie on Wednesday touted an anti-tax crusader's endorsement of a proposed 23-cent- per-gallon gasoline tax hike along with a sales tax cut, sweeping aside objections raised by Democratic leaders in the state Senate and voicing confidence that the measure would be passed in that chamber. Christie all but dared lawmakers not to act on his plan during a statehouse news conference, a day after the Assembly passed the plan to pay for a $2 billion a year transportation trust fund for eight years. The fund runs out of borrowing authority Friday, and Christie's...

    John Kasich and two other prominent Republicans said on the one-year anniversary of Donald Trump’s announcement speech that they won’t endorse him for president. Kasich, who ran against Trump in the primary, was asked on MSNBC Thursday about the pledge he signed saying he would support the eventual nominee. “It’s painful,” the Ohio governor said, NPR reports. “Look I’m sorry that this has happened. We’ll see where it ends up. I’m not making any final decision yet, but at this point, I just can’t do it.’

    Hillary Clinton laughed as the person introducing her omitted “under God” from the pledge of allegiance. Wednesday, during a campaign rally at Camden County College in New Jersey, the woman said, “Only Hillary can bring us together as one nation, indivisible with liberty and justice for all.” After the woman said “one nation,” she can be heard beginning to say under, but then caught herself. The crowd roared in approval.

    Seventeen GOP presidential contenders pledged to support the eventual nominee, but now presumptive nominee Donald Trump is calling out former establishment darling Jeb Bush for not honoring that pledge. "Jeb Bush signed a pledge and basically it says I’m gonna support the person who wins the Republican primaries right? And it said that very strongly and he signed the pledge and now he says he’s not going to honor the pledge. That’s very dishonorable. I think he should honor it. Even if he doesn’t love me. And it’s hard for him to like me. But remember this, look, I hit...

    Donald Trump’s announcement that he no longer stands by a pledge to support the GOP has thrown his hold on South Carolina’s 50 delegates in doubt. The Palmetto State was one of several that required candidates to pledge their loyalty to the party’s eventual nominee in order to secure a slot on the primary ballot. Though Trump won all of the state’s delegates in the Feb. 20 primary, anti-Trump forces are plotting to contest their binding to Trump because of his threat on the pledge Tuesday. The loyalty pledge is nothing new in South Carolina, where it has been required...

    "I don't make a habit out of supporting people who attack my wife and attack my family, and Donald Trump is not going to be the Republican nominee," Cruz told reporters Friday afternoon, his clearest suggestion yet that he could not back the billionaire if he is the GOP's standard-bearer in the general election. . . . "I want to be crystal clear: These attacks are garbage," Cruz wrote on Facebook. "For Donald J. Trump to enlist his friends at the National Enquirer and his political henchmen to do his bis bidding shows you that there is no low Donald...

    Cruz, speaking to reporters on Monday, reiterated that he would support Trump in the general election, though he qualified it by saying, “I can give you one example where I would no longer support Donald Trump. If for example, he were to go out on 5th Avenue and shoot somebody, I would not be willing to support Donald Trump.”

    The Fox News Republican debates ended where they began: with a pledge. During the first Fox-hosted Republican presidential debate in August, the candidates were asked whether they would pledge not to run as an independent if they lost the Republican nomination — a clear shot at Donald Trump, who was openly mulling the possibility. Flash forward to Thursday night. The rival Sens. Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio and Gov. John Kasich were pressed on whether they would support Trump if he secured their party's nomination. Moderators Megyn Kelly, Bret Baier, and Chris Wallace threw the candidates off their talking points....

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama will pledge to use "every single aspect of American power" to destroy Islamic State during a rare Oval Office address on Sunday in an effort to reassure Americans his administration is handling the threat of terrorism forcefully. The president will speak to Americans shortly after 8:00 p.m. EST to discuss how the government has worked to keep the country safe since the Paris attacks and, going back further, since the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on New York and Washington. Obama has come under consistent pressure from Republicans to step up his response to Islamic...
