Chris Christie: Pugilistic Prevaricator

32705

Written by Laurie Higgins

Chris Christie (aka the Pot) demonstrates an arrogant, caustic delight in calling kettles black. His most recent demonstrations occurred during the Republican debate in New Hampshire and during an interview Sunday morning with Chris Wallace.

During the debate Christie, with the characteristic brutishness that Christie mistakes for leadership, accused Marco Rubio of basing a criticism of Christie on “incorrect and incomplete information.” Then shortly thereafter, he accused Rubio of “truancy” for not being present for a vote on the Hezbollah International Financing Prevention Act of 2015.… Continue Reading

Which Presidential Aspirant(s) Would Make America (And You!) Prosper?

gold-standard

Written by Ralph Benko – Senior Economic Advisor at the American Principles Project

As I recently wrote in my Forbes.com column, “Presidential elections are about, above all, just two things: our security and our prosperity.” The GOP candidates have been emphatic about our national security, about which more in a bit.

All of them strangely have been pretty quiet about our prosperity. Getting the economy moving again deserves, now, to be the top issue. Ted Cruz has offered the most Reaganesque plan for getting us robust growth.… Continue Reading

Religious Liberty: Only for Muslims?

 

Hillary Clinton

Written by Linda Harvey

Suddenly, the left defends religious liberty. They are shocked, shocked that Donald Trump proposed limits on Muslim immigration to America.

But what about all those same-sex “wedding” cakes? What about the Kleins in Oregon – who are citizens, not immigrants – facing a fine of $135,000 because they believed Americans had a right to religious freedom? Where’s the outcry over jail cells for county clerks who have conscientious objections?

In a new campaign ad, Hillary Clinton tells America she doesn’t believe Christians have a right to refuse cakes to homosexual couples.… Continue Reading

Ted Cruz Pushes Ban on Syrian Muslim Refugees; Wants Christians Given Priority

SyrianRefugees

Written by Ray Nothstine

Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz said that he will push for a ban against Syrian Muslims entering the United States, citing the Obama administration and intelligence agencies inability to identify refugees from terrorists.

“We should not be allowing Muslim refugees from countries where ISIS and al Qaeda have control of significant amounts of territory because of the inability of this administration, the inability of our intelligence sources to distinguish between who is and is not an ISIS terrorist,” Cruz told Jon Karl of ABC News.Continue Reading

GOP Media Takedown: A Recipe for Victory

Written by Selwyn Duke

It’s long been known that a leader can gain power by rallying the people against a boogeyman.

And it helps when that boogeyman is real.

When CNBC’s GOP debate moderators couldn’t help but be sanctimonious, supercilious, and self-important Wednesday night, they did more than provoke a response from their intellectual superiors. They did more than further reveal the Establishment Media as a left-wing monolith, further discredit themselves, and further cement in minds that they’re comic-book versions of journalists.… Continue Reading

Republicans’ Media Bias Claims Boosted by Scarcity of Right-Leaning Journalists

LIBERAL-MEDIA

Written by Kelly Riddell
The Washington Times

A mere 7 percent of journalists identify as Republicans, and when they do give money to political campaigns they usually donate to Democrats, lending evidence to Republican presidential candidates’ claims that they are facing a hostile audience when they deal with the press.

As Republican candidates prepare for their fourth debate of the primary season Tuesday in Milwaukee, the people doing the questioning are increasingly in the spotlight, with their motives being questioned by the campaigns, voters and even by their fellow journalists.… Continue Reading

CNBC Moderators’ Low Performance Should Be A Lesson To The RNC

 

gop1

By StacyOnTheRight

The CNBC debate is memorable for many reasons, with the complete lack of preparedness of the moderators standing out as unfortunate circumstance number one. At numerous points during the evening, candidates called out the moderators for the low quality of their questions. Becky Quick was obviously biased against the candidates and repeatedly steered the discussion to “Pay Inequality” only to be viciously rebuffed. At one point, Quick couldn’t remember where she’d heard that Donald Trump was critical of Mark Zuckerberg’s immigration stance.… Continue Reading

Fiorina Led Debate That Was All About Trump

 

Written by Chad Groening and Billy Davis

Media Research Center reports that 32 of the 73 questions questions either were directed to – or were a reference to – Donald Trump.

Dan Gainor, vice president of MRC Business, says there are several reasons for CNN’s obsession with Trump.

“One of them is ratings,” Gainor says. “Look, they’re a business. They certainly want to get good ratings.”

In fact, CNN posted its best ratings ever – for any of its shows – during the three-hour debate.… Continue Reading

Highly Religious Republicans Don’t Like Trump

Donald_trump

Written by Frank Newport

Late in August New York Times columnist Frank Bruni expressed puzzlement over what he cited as Donald Trump‘s high level of support among evangelical Republicans. A piece this week in The Christian Post similarly, albeit from a different perspective, ponders why Trump is “receiving so much support from evangelicals.” CNN carried a recent report on the battle for evangelical voters between Trump and Ben Carson. A recent report in The Wall Street Journal indicatedthat Donald Trump plans on meeting with evangelical leaders later in September in his office.… Continue Reading

Christians & The Law

Kim Davis

Written by Gary Bauer

I am pleased to report that Rowan County, Kentucky, clerk Kim Davis has been released from jail. But I have been very disappointed by the parade of leading Republicans — Donald Trump, Governor Jeb Bush, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, Governor Chris Christie and others — who are distancing themselves from Davis.

This sorry episode is yet another example of our side playing by one set of rules while the other side plays by its own.… Continue Reading
