Krauthammer: "Do You Think Attacking Trump Moved The Needle One Bit For Bush? No."

BRET BAIER: It was Bush’s land stand. He had to make an impression. Jeb Bush had to. He is standing there and had to go after the big dogs. He did. Now, my question to you is, did Bush do himself any good by doing that CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: My argument is that it would make no sense. Do you think that attacking trump moved the needle one bit for Bush? The answer is no, of course. BAIER: Did it hurt him? KRAUTHAMMER: It would have in the first debate. In the second debate when Bush was losing altitude, Trump is rising that is the time he had to stand up and defend himself. The spread now is 40% Trump, 5% for Bush… I would say he was given the biggest … Read entire article »

Rand Paul: Rubio Has More Of An Allegiance To An Open Border, Chuck Schumer Than To Conservatives

Speaking at the CNN Republican debate Tuesday night, Senators Rand Paul and Marco Rubio spar over surveillance and data collection in the fight against terror. “I think Marco gets it completely wrong,” Paul said of government surveillance. “We are not any safer through the bulk collection of all Americans’ records. In fact, I think we’re less safe. We get so distracted by all the information, we’re not spending enough time getting specific information on terrorists.” Paul claimed stricter border protection could have prevented San Bernardino and said Rubio opposes an increase in border security spending. “The other thing is, the one thing that might have stopped San Bernardino that might have stopped 9/11, was stricter controls on those who came here,” Paul claimed. “And Marco has opposed at every point increased border … Read entire article »

Jeb Bush Interrupts Trump: "How About A Taste Of Your Own Medicine?"

Jeb Bush and Donald Trump get down and dirty. JEB BUSH: This is another example of the lack of seriousness. Look, this is, this is troubling because we’re at war. They’ve declared war on us and we need to have a serious strategy to destroy ISIS. But the idea that that is a solution to this is just is just crazy. It makes no sense to suggest this. Look, two months ago donald trump said that ISIS was not our fight. Just two months ago. He said that hillary clinton would be a great negotiator with Iran. And he gets his foreign policy experience from “The Shows.” That is not a serious kind of candidate. We need someone that thinks this through. That can lead our country to safety … Read entire article »

"Chaos Candidate" Trump: "Jeb Doesn't Believe I Am Unhinged," He Only Said That Because His Campaign Failed

In response to a question about the time he called Donald Trump “unhinged,” Gov. Jeb Bush says Donald Trump’s plan to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the U.S. “will push the Muslims world away from us.” “So, Donald is great at the one-liners, but he is a chaos candidate. And he’d be a chaos president.” Trump responds, saying that “Jeb doesn’t really beleive I’m unhinged.” “He said that very simply because he has failed in this campaign; it has been a total disaster. 🚨 siren: Drudge and Coulter spotted at GOP debate pic.twitter.com/u3fwo8lV6V— Jon Passantino (@passantino) December 16, 2015 (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); … Read entire article »

Rand Paul: If We Ban Religions, Censor Internet "The Terrorists Will Have Won"

In his opening remarks at Tuesday’s Republican presidential debate hosted by CNN, candidate Sen. Rand Paul said banning religions and censoring the internet means the terrorists will have won. SEN. RAND PAUL: The question is, how do we keep America safe? The question is, what does he mean by that? Like they do in North Korea? Like they do in China? [Marco] Rubio says we should collect all Americans’ records all of the time. The constitution says otherwise. I think they’re both wrong. I think we defeat terrorism by showing them that we do not fear them. I think if we ban certain religions, if we censor the internet, I think that at that point the terrorists will have won. Regime change hasn’t won. Toppling secular dictators in the Middle East … Read entire article »

Lindsey Graham Will Support GOP Nominee: "If It Is Trump, So Be It"

South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham’s impassioned plea to the American people: LINDSEY GRAHAM: You may think this makes us safe, but it doesn’t. The good news for everybody this in this room is after 36 trips to Iraq and Afghanistan, most people over there, Wolf, are not buying what ISIL is selling. This is a religious war between radical Islam and the rest of the world. And there is only one way you will win this war. Help people in Islam who reject radical Islam to fight over there and destroy this ideology. Donald Trump has done the one single thing you cannot do. Declare war on Islam itself. ISIL would be dancing in the streets, they just don’t believe in dancing. This is a coup for them and to all … Read entire article »

Mark Levin: Donald Trump "Really Screwed Up This Week, Big Time, Trifecta"

Mark Levin scolds Donald Trump for his attacks on Ted Cruz, and other hypocrisies. MARK LEVIN: I think my friend Donald Trump really screwed up this weekend, big time, trifecta. Joining in with a leftist on CNN to twist what Antonin Scalia said during a Supreme Court hearing on affirmative action, just joining in and dumping on him. He deserves better than that, a lot better than that. Embracing ethanol subsidies. If we can’t get rid of ethanol subsidies, ladies and gentleman, how we are going to address an over $200 trillion debt. We’re not. And then we have a guy [Ted Cruz] who has stood up to Mitch McConnell, who is viciously attacked in every liberal outlet, by the establishment, who led the fight against Obamacare, and he’s referred … Read entire article »

Here’s What’s in Congress’ Spending and Tax Package

Congressional leaders announced the details of a $1.1 trillion spending bill to fund the government on Tuesday night. But with spending levels already predetermined, lawmakers were more concerned with what policy provisions were attached to the legislation. The spending legislation will be introduced with a package renewing billions of dollars in tax breaks for businesses and low-income Americans. Text of the 2,009-page spending bill was released at 2 a.m. Wednesday; the separate 233-page tax-extenders bill was released just before midnight. The result of the secretive negotiations is compromise, with both Republican leadership and Democrats claiming wins. House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., are able to brag about at least some policy provisions included in the spending bill, most significantly measures ending a 40-year-old ban on oil exports and stopping … Read entire article »

After Racial Incidents, Ithaca Students, Faculty Express ‘No Confidence’ in College President

Weeks after the University of Missouri’s president resigned in the wake of protests following racially charged events, the faculty and staff at New York’s Ithaca College have expressed no confidence in its own president because of his response to a handful of race-related incidents. The faculty at Ithaca College on Monday cast overwhelming votes of no confidence in President Tom Rochon, a vote that came just weeks after students at the college expressed similar opposition to Ithaca’s leaders. Of the 406 faculty members who voted, 316—nearly 78 percent—said they did not have confidence in Rochon, who has been criticized in recent months for his handling of racist incidents on campus, according to a tally of the votes a student provided to The Daily Signal. “People feel strongly about these issues and decided … Read entire article »
