With victories in South Carolina and Nevada, respectively, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have established themselves as the front-runners for their party nominations. But, it is not yet over.
The far-left Southern Poverty Law Center thinks a whole race of people, American Indians, are “weak.” In a bizarre rant laced with multiple factual errors, the increasingly discredited group also theorizes about and purports to expose a vast “anti-Indian” conspiracy. But it strategically omits what is arguably the story's most important fact: The target of the SPLC's vitriol is actually an American Indian herself, married to a direct descendant of Sacajawea. Oops!
Presidential candidate Donald Trump’s continued condemnations of former President George W. Bush’s decision to invade Iraq in 2003 have irritated many of his political opponents, including Bush’s younger brother and Trump’s rival for the Republican nomination, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush.
After the GOP Senate leadership and most presidential candidates voiced strong opposition to the prospect of President Obama selecting a replacement for the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, some Republicans are open to at least giving an Obama nominee a hearing.
It appears that, to the ordinary South Carolina citizen, voter, and taxpayer, Jeb Bush's record smacks too much of ties to the despised establishment, and that this citizen is willing to take a chance on Trump, Cruz, or Rubio rather than more of the same with Jeb.
Suspicions and unanswered questions surrounding the surprise weekend death of pro-Constitution U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia are swirling around the Internet and beyond. Many of the concerns center on the fact that the man who found Scalia's body, businessman and Democrat donor John Poindexter, said the late justice was discovered with “a pillow over his head.” Also sparking alarm among some commentators and suspicious citizens are reports and official statements indicating that no autopsy will be conducted, despite contradictory claims surrounding the cause of death. Even the establishment press, apparently unfamiliar with the definition of the term “conspiracy theory,” has started reporting on the concerns and questions, albeit generally with a dismissive tone. Cries for an autopsy and congressional probe are growing louder, even as the White House, Democrats, and leftists waste no time in plotting to name a successor. The atmosphere is getting very tense.
Republican senators, including Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) have begun their constitutional role to give their advice and consent to the president in selecting a replacement for the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, by advising President Obama to decline to nominate anyone.
In Saturday night's GOP debate, the punches and counterpunches flew. But amidst the accusations and denials, including the hurling of the "L" word ("Liar"), were we able to learn much about where the candidates actually stand on the issues?
