    A few days ago when asked about the couragous stand of Kim Davis, Trump essentially came out in support of gay marriage. "Its the law of the land," he said. “I hate to see her being put in jail." Well, isn't that swell Trumpy, but he added “I understand what they’re doing. It would be certainly nice if she didn’t do it." Lets get this straight, while bold leaders like Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Mike Huckabee are coming out in support of Kim Davis and her religious stand of conscious, Trump is busy kowtowing to the gay mafia, turning...

    From the moment he walked onto the Republican debate stage in Cleveland, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) has been Donald Trump's most relentless critic. He has called him a "fake conservative," a "chameleon," a man who "buys and sells politicians." Long before former Florida Jeb Bush hit Trump with a video of his most liberal statements, Paul had his campaign team on the case. Yet in a Friday interview with Michael Smerconish, first spotlighted by Mediaite's Matt Wilstein, Paul got a chance to mock Trump's stumbling "commander in chief interview" with Hugh Hewitt. He did not take it. Instead, he defended...

    RUSH: We have new polling data from CNN. The world is shocked yet again when it comes to Donald Trump. Two sound bites, one here from Ashleigh Banfield. BANFIELD: Breaking news for you. It may not sound breaking, but Donald Trump's support is surging. And that is officially breaking because just minutes ago a Monmouth University poll came out showing Trump with a commanding 30% support. That is up four points from before the first debate. That's nearly one-third of Republicans in this country supporting Donald Trump. Ben Carson is now in second place with 18%, and that is very...

    Rand Paul said he supports a county clerk from his home state for standing her ground against granting marriage licenses for same-sex couples, saying there should be room "for people to exercise their religious beliefs and not be told they have to do something they find morally objectionable." "I have never been opposed to contracts between consenting adults," Paul told Fox News' "America's Newsroom" co-host Bill Hemmer. "But I am very much sympathetic to the idea that an individual shouldn't have to sign or give their stamp of approval that they object to." There is an easy way out for...

    Talking points Memo ^ | Sept. 3, 2015 | Caitlin Cruz
    Sen. Rand Paul's (R-KY) said on Thursday it was "absurd" that Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis had been jailed for contempt after refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. "I think it’s absurd to put someone in jail for exercising their religious liberties," the GOP presidential candidate and outspoken advocate of states' rights told CNN on Thursday, shortly after Davis' fate was decided by a U.S. District Court Judge David Bunning. "This is really the problem when from on high we decide to get involved on a federal level with something that has always been a local issue," Paul...

    Donald Trump is "totally pledging" his allegiance to the GOP and promising not to mount a potentially damaging third-party bid for president. The billionaire businessman said Thursday he had signed the Republican National Committee's "Loyalty Pledge," which says he will support the eventual nominee and not run as an independent or on another party line. "I will be totally pledging my allegiance to the Republican Party and the conservative principles for which it stands," said Trump. Trump made his announcement at the Trump Towers lobby in New York City after meeting with RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. While many had expected...
