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 >>
The Center for Medical Progress has released its sixth video shining a light on Planned Parenthood's aborted baby parts compensation practices. The video claims that Planned Parenthood and its partner, StemExpress, are pressuring women to have abortions and are harvesting babies' body parts without the consent of their mothers.
The video, which was released by CMP Wednesday morning, is the continuation of an interview from the third web video released by CMP in July featuring Holly O'Donnell, an ex-procurement technician for StemExpress.
O'Donnell, who previously said she unknowingly took the job as a fetal tissue procurement officer when she was hired as a phlebotomist, detailed the unethical procurement processes and techniques used by StemExpress agents, as the company's various procurement officers are responsible for collecting specific fetal organs and tissues that meet certain criteria needed for research clients. more >>
Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are leading in the polls for the Republican and Democratic, respectively, presidential nominee, but those polls are not the best indicator of which candidates are currently the strongest. There are better ways to measure who has the best chance of winning the nomination.
Asking voters who they would vote for if the election were held today favors the candidates with the highest name recognition. The candidates who usually win, however, are those who are most acceptable to the broadest range of a party's factions and considered able to win the election.
There are three other measures that, this early in the race, will provide a better picture of who is actually most likely to win the nomination. more >>
