Chris Matthews: Obama Wants To Be A "World Leader" While Trump Just Wants To Focus On America

On MSNBC Friday afternoon network host Chris Matthews said President Obama has “moved on” from the American presidency and is focused on becoming a “world leader,” like Nelson Mandela. Matthews praised Obama for playing the role of “international figure” in shifting his attention to “global issues,” while he sneered at Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, saying their major appeal is nationalism. Matthews said Obama’s international figure role is “delightful” to Europe, but unfortunately it’s “not selling at home.” “I think [the president] wants to show that he’s got something going against terrorism where it doesn’t seem to be that he does right now,” Matthews said of the administration’s plan to fight ISIS. “We don’t really understand our strategy.” “But the global thing with this president is he has moved on,” Matthews declared. “If … Read entire article »

Debbie Wasserman Schultz Defends Suspending Sanders Access To DNC Data System

DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz explains that the Sanders campaign admits a staffer accessed Clinton campaign data “during a narrow window” while the Democratic Party system was down for maintainence, which “opened the opportunity for each of the campaigns to see each others proprietary data.” The staffer responsible (who has been let go) reportedly downloaded and exported secret Clinton data. As a result, the DNC has suspended the Sanders camp’s access to the entire system of voter and donor data awaiting the results of an investigation. … Read entire article »

Bernie Sanders Campaign Manager Says "People In The Democratic Party Establishment" Are Trying To Sabotage Sanders

Jeff Weaver, Bernie Sanders’ campaign manager, is threatening to sue the DNC for suspending its access to the national voter database after party leaders accused the Sanders camp of “systematically accessing Clinton campaign data.” Weaver said the data on millions of Democratic donors and voters has been “stolen” by the DNC and threatened to bring the issue to federal court this afternoon if the DNC continues to “hold our data hostage.” JEFF WEAVER: I don’t know the motivation of every single person over at the DNC, but what I can tell you is is you look at the pattern of conduct, there is a concern about the Saturday night debate schedule, making it difficult for campaigns to get their messages out. In this case it looks like they are trying to … Read entire article »

Did Jeb Bush Just Imply That He Supports Clinton Over Trump? | Jeb: Hillary's Proposals "Aren't Much Better" Than Trump's

Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush refuses to answer CNN anchor John Berman’s questions about whether he thinks Donald Trump would be a better president than Hillary Clinton, but in his response he lets it slip that in his view, Hillary Clinton’s policy proposals “aren’t much better” than Donald Trump’s ideas. The exchange begins with Jeb Bush desrcibing the problems with Donald Trump’s foreign policy, saying his support for Putin “shows the lack of understanding of where we are in the world today.” “Would he make a better president than Hillary Clinton?” asks the CNN host. “I don’t think Hillary Clinton is going to be elected president of the U.S.,” responds Jeb. “She’s not trustworthy, and her proposals aren’t much better.” Wait? Did Jeb just say Hillary Clinton’s proposals “aren’t much better” than Donald Trump’s? Next, … Read entire article »

Scarborough on Rubio: "Where Is The Beef?"

During a discussion about Republican presidential hopeful Marco Rubio on Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, host Joe Scarborough asked, ‘Where’s the beef?’ SCARBOROUGH: I want to go back to the poll here and Jonathan [Capehart] look at a number because this story is starting to bubble up everywhere. Marco Rubio — proclaimed the savior of the Republican party by TIME magazine after he hit a triple in third grade on his tee-ball team in South Florida — sitting at 9% in a national poll and these stories are finally starting to bubble up. What Mark [Halperin] and I and other people have been saying for a long time, where’s the beef? Yeah, he can talk well on TV. Awesome. Is he doing what it takes to get elected? The New … Read entire article »

Ted Cruz: I Oppose Amnesty For Illegals, Marco Rubio Supports Amnesty

Ted Cruz appeared on the Laura Ingraham Show this morning. TED CRUZ: The Washington establishment is panicking right now, because conservatives are uniting behind our campaign… The Rubio campaign is trying to run as fast as they can away from his record of supporting amnesty and the gang of eight bill. What they’re trying to so is confuse everyone, but things are very clear. Things ae abundantly clear, is that I oppose amnesty, Marco Rubio supports citizenship, I oppose legalization, Marco Rubio supports legalization,i oppose the gang of eight, Marco Rubio authored the gang of eight… As soon as he got here he got into bed with Chuck Schumer and Barack Obama and the big money in this town, and directly violated the promises he made when he got elected. … Read entire article »

Trump: "The World Hates Us, They Truly Hate Us"

JOE SCARBOROUGH, MSNBC’S “MORNING JOE” HOST: So you’re talking about limiting America’s reach – I got to say, in much the same way that George W. Bush in 2000 before 9/11 talked about how we needed to have a more humbled foreign policy. If that’s the case, do you also think that we’ve spent too much on defense spending and that sequestration is actually a good idea and we should use that money that we’re not spending on the Pentagon to rebuild our infrastructure? DONALD TRUMP, REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: I think we have to really rebuild our military. That doesn’t mean we have to use it. I think we’ve used our military far too much on certain things and certainly we haven’t used it very well. … Read entire article »

Cruz: Rubio And I Were Both Elected Promising To Lead The Fight Against Amnesty, In 2013 "We Made Very Different Decisions"

Sen. Ted Cruz released this extensive explanation of claims that he supported the 2013 “gang of eight” amensty bill. Marco Rubio, who helped write the bipartisan compromise, claimed at Tuesday’s debate that amendments filed by Ted Cruz constituted support for the bill, and therefore their positions were the same. TED CRUZ: What Chuck Schumer and Barack Obama wanted was very simple, they wanted millions of new Democratic voters. There’s a reason why I think the new politically correct term is no longer “illegal alien,” it is now “undocumented Democrat.” That is what was going on, it was a pure partisan political game. And by introducing and amendment to block citizenship, it laid naked the partisanship, the hypocrisy and the lies behind the proponents of the Rubio-Schumer Amnesty plan. There is a reason every … Read entire article »

Mike Lee: "I Was With Ted Cruz The Entire Time," Claims He Supported Rubio's Amnesty Bill Are "100% False"

On the Sean Hannity radio show Thursday afternoon, Sen. Mike Lee clears the air over the spat between Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz about the 2013 “Gang of Eight” immigration bill. Marco Rubio and his supporters point to a series of amendments Cruz proposed for the bipartisan immigration reform bill as a sign that he supported the bill, but Lee says the situation is more complicated: ” I was there as we both drafted and presented amendments trying to make this really bad ‘Gang of Eight’ amnesty bill not as bad.” Lee, who serves on the Senate Judiciary Committee with Ted Cruz says claims that Cruz supported this bill are “100% false.” “At no time during that process – at no moment did I ever see Ted Cruz take any action that … Read entire article »

Paul Ryan: "I Feel Very Good About Where We're Going" In Budget Process

PAUL RYAN: The budget bill had some real wins for the American people in in, whether it is lifting the oil export ban, increasing military spending, or renewing healthcare for 9/11 first responders… We need to be an effective opposition party. It reigns in the IRs, stops EPA over reach, blocks several Obamacare programs, and stops the risk corridor program. When we return in January, the House will put an Obamacare repeal bill on the floor, and pass it. And put it on the president’s desk. This bill will also defund Planned Parenthood. … Read entire article »

Brzezinski to Trump: What "Positive Message" Do You Have For Muslims To Feel Welcome In This Country?

BRZEZINSKI: So Donald, I want to ask you about a topic that’s really been in the headlines now for weeks and that’s your temporary ban on Muslims coming into this country. Polls are showing that you’re really striking a chord whether or not you agree with it or not. I’m asking you if you could right now speak to the Muslim-American population and tell them what you would do or say as president to make sure they feel that they are as much a part of this country as everyone else is. TRUMP: Sure. I have many friends who are Muslim. They are great people. They’re tremendous people. But there’s something going on, I mean, whether you like it or not and I’ve seen various polls where … Read entire article »

Why This Senator Accuses Paul Ryan of ‘Blithely Dismissing’ Americans on Immigration

Speaker Paul Ryan’s honeymoon with fellow conservatives has been tested in the House over the contentious omnibus spending bill, but it’s come to a jolting halt for one member of the Senate. After the House passed the massive spending bill Friday, Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., attacked Ryan by name over permitting an expansion of the H-2B visa program for low-skilled “guest workers.” “Blithely dismissing the just concerns of the great majority of American voters, and especially Republican voters, is not a wise course for the Republican speaker,” Sessions said in a prepared statement. In question are H-2B visas designed to allow low-skilled foreign workers to take temporary blue-collar jobs in the United States.  A provision in the 2,009-page spending bill increases the program’s eligibility cap from 66,000 workers to 264,000. Sessions, a critic of … Read entire article »

Dispute Over Islam Homework Assignment Raises Questions About Public School Curriculum

A local dispute over a high school homework assignment made national headlines when parents in Virginia complained that a teacher was attempting to “indoctrinate” their children with the Islam religion. “The sheet she gave out was pure doctrine in its origin,” Kimberly Herndon, mother of a 9th grade boy at the high school, told ABC affiliate WHSV. “I will not have my children sit under a woman who indoctrinates them with the Islam religion when I am a Christian.” The controversy began at Riverside High School in Staunton, Va., when students in a world geography class were asked to copy the Islamic statement of faith as a way to give students “an idea of the artistic complexity of calligraphy.” The statement of faith translates to: “There is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is … Read entire article »

California Close Encounter Shows Why Drone Registry Will Be Ineffective

Last week, a drone and a California Highway Patrol helicopter nearly collided 700 feet above the California city of Martinez. Shortly thereafter, the reckless drone pilot was apprehended by police. The man, a Chinese exchange student, was questioned but ultimately not arrested. This is exactly the sort of situation the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is citing to justify creating a federal “drone registry” by Christmas. Requiring every drone operator to mark his or her aircraft and report it to federal authorities will, according to the FAA, decrease the number of alarming close encounters like this one, and make it easier to track illicit drones back to their owners. The FAA is wrong on both counts, and the incident in the skies over California is an excellent case study demonstrating why. Beginning on Dec. … Read entire article »
