Fifteen months out from the 2016 presidential election, the American electorate is already doubling down, considering candidates with fervor. The Republican polls show that The Donald has hit a major nerve: Americans are sick of politics as usual. We're tired of hearing lies and sick of experiencing the frustration of broken promises.
Donald Trump has capitalized on American disappointment in our leaders. He's shown a pride in America that our current president has neglected. Americans are attracted to the idea of a bold leader who is willing to say things exactly the way they are.
And yet, the candidate best able to bring America into a courageous new frontier is Texas Senator Ted Cruz. The son of a Cuban-born evangelist and of an American mother who was the first in her family to graduate college, Cruz can identify with the average American. more >>
Carly Fiorina has surged in recent polls after what many believed was a strong showing in the first of the night GOP debate in Cleveland. A former chief executive at Hewlett Packard, Fiorina lost a 2010 bid for the U.S. Senate against Democrat incumbent Barbara Boxer.
Before the Cleveland debate, Fiorina noted that only 40 percent of Republicans even knew her name, and suggested that the first step to making her more competitive and viable in the race was to change that. She is a breast cancer survivor and the first woman to head up a top 20 American company.
A former adviser to John McCain's 2008 bid for the presidency, Fiorina officially launched her own campaign for the White House in February. Fiorina was interviewed by The Christian Post in February, 2015. Below are six interesting facts about her Christian faith: more >>
Republican presidential candidate and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal stated in a campaign appearance on Tuesday that former first lady and Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton is just one email away from serving jail time, as he is one of a few Republican presidential candidates attacking Clinton over her server scandal.
As the former Secretary of State has turned over her private email server that she used while in office to the FBI for investigation, Jindal wasted no time in bashing Clinton for using her private server to send and store classified emails.
Since Clinton swore on an affidavit to a federal judge that she has given up "all" of her government business emails, Jindal told a small gathering in Iowa that all it would take for Clinton to be guilty of perjury is just one lone email slipping out that she did not hand over. more >>
Republican presidential candidate and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush blamed the rise of radical militant group Islamic State on President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Monday and urged Congress to vote against the pending Iran nuclear deal because it is "unwise and extreme."
"Despite elaborate efforts by the administration to avoid even calling it by name one of the greatest threats we face today comes from radical Islamic terrorists," said Bush in an address on foreign policy at the Reagan Library in California.
"The terrorists are possessed. The terrorists are possessed by the same violent ideology that gave us 9/11 and they are on the offensive and gaining ground. It is not true, and was wishful thinking by the administration to claim that the tide of war is receding. The reality is radical Islam has been spreading like a pandemic across the Middle East, throughout Africa, and to parts of Asia, even in the nations of the West, finding recruits in Europe and the United States," Bush added. more >>
Two bills have been introduced for the next Florida legislative session that would protect churches who refuse to perform gay weddings from potential legal action.
Filed earlier this week and scheduled to be considered during the 2016 session, the identical Senate Bill 110 and House Bill 43 offer legal protection for any church or ministry who refuses to perform a same-sex wedding.
"A church or religious organization, an organization supervised or controlled by or in connection with a church or religious organization, an individual employed by a church or religious organization while acting in the scope of that employment, or a clergy member or minister may not be required to solemnize any marriage or provide services, accommodations, facilities, goods, or privileges for a purpose related to the solemnization, formation, or celebration of any marriage if such an action would cause the church, organization, or individual to violate a sincerely held religious belief," read the bills' text. more >>
GOP Presidential candidate Donald Trump has clarified that he would only support Planned Parenthood receiving tax dollars if it ends what he called the "despicable practice" of abortion.
"While Planned Parenthood is engaging in the despicable practice of abortion — in addition to then selling aborted baby body parts to the highest bidder — the organization should receive no taxpayer dollars," Trump told Breitbart News in a statement on Tuesday evening.
"The liberal left wing always claims that Planned Parenthood isn't about abortion and that it's about other general areas of women's health. I am totally in favor of women's health and if they can put their money where their mouth is, and stop the abortion services at Planned Parenthood entirely, we can talk about government funding for many of the other aspects of the organization that do a lot of good," he added. more >>
