    TAMPA, Florida, November 19, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) - Dr. Ben Carson has been in the center of a firestorm since a Florida newspaper reported that he referred to the Terri Schiavo case as "much ado about nothing." Yesterday morning, in a comment sent exclusively to LifeSiteNews, Dr. Carson said his remarks had been "taken out of context and misinterpreted." "When I used the term 'much ado about nothing,' my point was that the media tried to create the impression that the pro-life community was nutty and going way overboard with the support of the patient," Dr. Carson told LifeSiteNews yesterday.

    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."...

    Ben Carson may be a pro-life Republican presidential candidate when it comes to the issue of abortions, but new comments the doctor made over the weekend about the Terri Schiavo case are causing concerns for pro-life voters. Carson thinks the federal and state governments overreached when they attempted to protect Terri Schiavo from a painful 14-day starvation and dehydration death. Despite the best efforts of pro-life lawmakers in Congress and the Florida state legislature, where lawmakers approved pro-life laws to allow Terri’s family to take their case to federal courts and to allow then-Governor Jeb Bush to try to protect...

    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...

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is reportedly preparing a relaunch of his 2016 GOP presidential campaign message. Bush is launching a "Jeb Can Fix It" tour on Monday in Florida, according to Reuters, in coordination with a new e-book detailing his time as governor. The news service reported Monday that Bush is starting his 2016 reinvention with speech aimed at presenting himself as a problem-solver. The remarks will be a "rejection of the 'competing pessimisms' created in the [President] Obama era in favor of leadership that solves problems," a campaign aide told Reuters. Bush's new 730-page e-book, "Reply All," compiles...

The weekend gathering, once billed as a "special appreciation event" for Jeb Bush's biggest financial backers, comes at a precarious time for his White House hopes. His campaign announced Friday it was making significant cutbacks, reportedly reducing its payroll by 40 percent, trimming travel costs by 20 percent and scaling back 45 percent on some other costs.

"The guy (Cruz) that made this comment was supportive of the guy (John Roberts) he was critical of," Bush told Rep. Tim Gowdy and the audience at Bishop England High School.

Ted Cruz (R-TX), Ben Carson, etc. but noticeably excludes the one woman in the race. Thats unexpected, because Fiorina currently leads fifth-place Bush, 8.9 percent to 7.1 percent, in RCPs average of primary polls, following Fiorinas highly rated performance in the GOPs second debate. Maybe Jeb is just trying to forget the last debate?, said Sarah Isgur Flores, Fiorinas deputy campaign manager. Or maybe they cant read New Hampshire...

    Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush has snagged a top GOP operative with ties to the presidential campaigns of Mitt Romney and Rick Perry. Until recently, Austin Barbour was running a super PAC backing Perry's presidential campaign. But the former Texas governor bowed out this month, and Barbour joined Team Bush officially Monday as a senior adviser focused on finance and political operations. Barbour and campaign officials confirmed the hire, which was first reported by Politico. During the 2012 race, Barbour was a deputy to top Romney adviser Stuart Stevens and helped with fundraising and get-out-the-vote efforts in early states. More...

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush used a speech here Monday before Hispanic business leaders to chide his party over its attitude toward immigration, drawing not-so-subtle contrasts between himself and bomb-throwing billionaire Donald Trump. "This apparently is somewhat out of the mainstream temporarily in my party, but it isn't really," Bush told the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce's national convention. "A great majority of Republican believe in immigration reform." Bush, who had hardly started speaking before being interrupted by protesters, only said Trump's name once, but clearly had the GOP foe on his mind. The real estate mogul's rants against illegal...

    In my July-issue Editor's Note column released earlier today, I expressed some skepticism about National Review writer Charles C.W. Cooke's conservatarian project, partly on grounds that libertarians should be wary of a political party that keeps on coughing up government-growing Republicans with the last name "Bush." So it's only fair to point out that, according to the shrewd political Washington Examiner political columnist Byron York, Jeb Bush is floundering to the point of shaking up his campaign staff. The remedying began Monday with word that Bush has shaken up his campaign before the campaign has even been formally announced. The...

    KENNEBUNKPORT, Maine A banner in the town square says, Happy 90th Barbara Bush. Postcards read Kennebunkport: 2 presidents, 1 town. A local gift shop is already selling unofficial Jeb Bush 2016 magnets. In this coastal hamlet made famous by George H.W. Bush and his cigarette boat, it is hard to escape the Bush family but Jeb Bush is trying very hard to do so. After festivities this weekend to celebrate his mothers 90th birthday, Bush will jet overseas for a foreign-policy tour and then launch his 2016 presidential campaign 1,500 miles to the south in Miami. The iconic...

    Jeb Bush made a series of astonishing remarks about immigration Wednesday. Actually, his comments were not so much about immigration as they were about illegal aliens. First he said he wanted to repopulate Detroit with illegal aliens. It just seems to me that maybe if you open up our doors in a fair way and unleashed the spirit of peoples' hard work, Detroit could become in really short order, one of the great American cities again," Bush said then. "Now it would look different, it wouldn't be Polish...But it would be just as powerful, just as exciting, just as dynamic....

    A new profile in New York magazine underscores the idea that former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is not nearly as moderate as he may seem as he campaigns for the Republican nomination for president.News outlets have been pointing this out for months, and Jennifer Senior's article in New York is full of even more examples of Bush's record and reputation in Florida, where he served two terms as governor.The story argues that the 62-year-old is "not the Bush you think he is" and "is more ruthless than he looks, more conservative than moderates like to believe."For example, Bush likes to...

    May 29, 2015 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Around 20 percent of hospital patients condemned as "brain-dead" are misdiagnosed – that is, those patients could be conscious and likely to recover. In fact, they may be as likely to respond to questions as healthy patients – they just lack the ability to communicate with the outside world.Neurosurgeon Adrian Owen of the University of Western Ontario and his colleagues performed brain scans on hospital patients diagnosed as being in what some call a "persistent vegetative state" – i.e., completely unresponsive and lacking brain activity. They asked the patients questions, and a brain scan showed...

    NASHVILLE Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush told nearly 1,500 Tennessee Republicans Saturday night that he and the GOP can win the White House next year with a hopeful, optimistic message and by reaching out to voters beyond conservatives and Republicans. Addressing the Tennessee Republican Partys annual Statesmens Dinner, the former Florida governor and likely GOP front-runner, said the next Republican president will win if they have a hopeful, optimistic message, not one that is completely negative; if they reach out to everybody in our country, not just those that have already decided that they are conservatives and Republicans.

    He said this on a conference call hosted by the Alabama GOP, which counts as one of its most honored members the leader of the anti-amnesty caucus in the U.S. Senate. Say this for Jeb: When he promised not to pander to conservatives in the name of winning the primaries, he meant it. Imagine how well received hell be on Morning Joe after he flames out of the race and does the inevitable Huntsman-esque media tour to explain how right-wing radicals stole the party from pragmatists like him. Bush 2016: Resolute for amnesty. Theres a banner worth carrying into the...

    You blinked, you missed it. The pro-life community just switched positions; it now supports assisted suicide! In their vital fight to save Floridas Terri Schiavo from being starved to death by judicial decree, they foolishly hinged their position on the absence of a written directive. If the Hemlock Society had tried to pass a federal law legitimizing assisted suicide, pro-lifers would have stopped them. But pro-life leaders have so often compromised on Thou shall not murder, they no longer realize when theyre making concessions. They tried desperately to pass the Incapacitated Persons Legal Protection Act which, for the first time...

    He was born in Midland, Texas, and he spent a good bit of his boyhood in Houston, and he went to high school in Andover, Massachusetts, and to college in Austin, Texas, and he has lived for the last three and a half decades in Miami. But at the top of the list of the most important places in the world in the life of Jeb Bush is the central Mexican state of Guanajuato, and its conservative, old-world Catholic capital of Len. Len is why he proposed marriage in Spanish, why his three children are Mexican-American, why his favorite foods...

    EXCLUSIVE: Columba Bush's car sports bumper sticker declaring 'Viva Jeb!' and his campaign for 'Presidente 2016' (but he still won't say he's actually running) Jeb Bush has been coy about whether he will formally enter the 2016 presidential race. But his wife already has the bumper sticker. Columba Bush was photographed Tuesday in Coral Gables, Florida getting into her green Mini Cooper with a clearly visible Spanish-language message on the back-end. 'Viva Jeb! Presidente 2016,' it read. It's the first outward sign that Bush's presidential announcement is a certainty, and could come soon. The sticker includes Jeb's first name in...
