Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz accused rivals Donald Trump and Marco Rubio of using the "talking points" of President Barack Obama when calling last June's Supreme Court same-sex marriage ruling the "law of the land."
While speaking at the Carolina Values Summit co-hosted by The Reconciled Church Movement and NC Values Coalition at Winthrop University in South Carolina Thursday night, Cruz began by telling the crowd that there are "three fundamental values" that were at the "heart of the gathering" — life, marriage and religious liberty.
As South Carolina voters will cast their primary ballots next Saturday, the Texas senator encouraged conservatives not to listen to each candidate's campaign rhetoric but to instead judge them "by their fruits." more >>
As much of the media focuses on America's racial divide from the perspective of minority communities, Democratic candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders were given the opportunity Thursday night to discuss overlooked problems facing America's white population.
As the two candidates discussed how to ease the contentious race relations in the United States during the PBS Newshour debate in Wisconsin, moderator Gwen Ifill switched the conversation to a lesser discussed topic.
"Let me turn this on its head, because when we talk about race in this country, we always talk about African-Americans, people of color," Ifill, an African-American, said. "I want to talk about white people, OK?" more >>
Conservative TV personality and radio host Glenn Beck, who is a Mormon, blasted Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and suggested that the idea that he has even read the Bible is a "crock of [expletive]."
Speaking at a rally in South Carolina in support of rival presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz, Beck said that "too many people are looking at Trump and believing that man has ever opened a Bible … that's the biggest crock of [expletive] I've ever heard."
Donald Trump may authorize "chopping people's heads off" as an appropriate method of torture should he become president, the 2016 candidate said in a recent interview.
Trump made his comments in a Sunday appearance with George Stephanopoulos on "This Week," saying that if he were elected commander-in-chief, he would implement tactics that go "beyond waterboarding."
"I would absolutely authorize something beyond waterboarding. And believe me, it will be effective," Trump said on the weekend program, adding, "If we need information, George, you have our enemy cutting heads off of Christians and plenty of others, by the hundreds, by the thousands." more >>
It is unfortunate that the Ted Cruz campaign and Rep. Steve King sent out misleading and even erroneous information about Dr. Ben Carson's campaign plans, for which Cruz and King have apologized. But CNN is also to blame, and its self-righteous, overly-indignant condemnation of the Cruz campaign exposes its own hypocrisy.
Here are the salient details, all from Monday night, Feb. 1. If ever the devil was in the details, it is in what follows.
6:43 PM, CST: CNN's Chris Moody tweets: "Carson won't go to NH/SC, but instead will head home to Florida for some R&R. He'll be in DC Thursday for the National Prayer Breakfast." more >>
Republican Presidential candidate Ben Carson opened up in an interview about the prayer that led him to run for president.
Carson was asked in an interview with The Church Boys podcast to explain the divine calling that, he claims, inspired his presidential run. God gave him a "clear message" that running for president was the right move, he said.
"It was easy for me, because all the pundits, all the political experts said, 'Absolutely impossible — a political novice to run for president? There's no way you can out together an organization, there's no way you can pay for it. It's impossible,' which comforted me," Carson said in his answer. more >>
