Donald Trump trolls Gawker,
publishes his own cellphone number
Politico, by Daniel Strauss    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 8/4/2015 1:58:52 PM     Post Reply
Now Donald Trump wants you to call him on his personal cellphone. A day after Gawker.com published the 2016 Republican presidential candidate and real estate mogul’s cellphone number, Trump tweeted it out. (Tweet) On Monday the cellphone had a rather generic message and went to straight to voicemail. On Tuesday the phone still went to voicemail but this time it directed callers to Trump’s campaign. “Hi this is Donald Trump and I’m running for the presidency of the United States of America,” the new voicemail message said. “With your help and support, together, we can make America truly great again.

Family of Sandra Bland
filing federal lawsuit

HOUSTON - The family of Sandra Bland says they are filing a federal lawsuit due to a lack of answers from authorities following Bland´s death. Houston attorney Cannon Lambert joined Bland´s mother and other family members at a press conference on Tuesday morning to discuss the case. Lambert says the family wants the Department of Justice to investigate Bland´s death, which authorities say was a suicide. Family members have disputed that claim, however. "This shouldn´t happen. It can´t happen. It´s gotta stop," said Lambert. Bland´s mom, Geneva Reed-Veal, brought a Bible with her to the press conference, saying it was the only thing keeping

Today’s the day Fox News announces the finalists for Thursday’s main event. Until Kasich got in, Perry was just inside the bubble. Now he’s outside, and as Harry Enten notes, not even rounding up or down to the next percentage point will help him.(Snip)Taking the margin of error into account, it’s possible that Perry’s true support is as high as three percent while Kasich’s is as low as 1.5 percent, and yet it’s Kasich who’s almost certainly in the main debate while Perry is out. In fact, as Monmouth notes, only five candidates — Trump, Bush, Walker, Cruz, and Huckabee

Special Report: State Department
watered down human trafficking report
Reuters, by Jason Szep & Matt Spetalnick    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/4/2015 1:46:25 PM     Post Reply
In the weeks leading up to a critical annual U.S. report on human trafficking that publicly shames the world’s worst offenders, human rights experts at the State Department concluded that trafficking conditions hadn’t improved in Malaysia and Cuba. And in China, they found, things had grown worse. The State Department’s senior political staff saw it differently — and they prevailed. A Reuters examination, based on interviews with more than a dozen sources in Washington and foreign capitals, shows that the government office set up to independently grade global efforts to fight human trafficking was repeatedly overruled by senior American diplomats

In the early days of Jon Stewart‘s tenure as the host of “The Daily Show,” the comedian often made viewers aware that his program was just the “fake news.” But over the past decade-and-a-half, the show weighed in on very real news stories, albeit with satirical slants. That approach led many to use the “Daily Show” as their primary source of news. When Stewart announced his departure earlier this year, it prompted some news outlets to ponder where the millennial generation will get news going forward. “The Daily Show” also spawned two other shows during the weekly nighttime slot — “The

I tried to watch a Sunday morning talk show that did not include a conversation with Donald Trump and failed miserably. If I have to listen to him, then you have to read about me listening to him. Because the few times he veers into something vaguely policy-related, he repeats the same Big Lie over and over again. On the Sunday talk shows, Trump made variations of the same argument he made in 2012 — that as president he would be able to bring back lost manufacturing jobs from China and Mexico. If there’s been a policy “theme” to Trump’s campaign

Iowa GOP Joins Trump in
Hammering Des Moines Register
Breitbart Big Government, by Matthew Boyle    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 8/4/2015 1:25:25 PM     Post Reply
Looks like the rest of the Republicans are catching up to the Donald, slowly but surely. A couple weeks ago, billionaire real estate mogul and 2016 GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump—the clear Republican frontrunner—stood alone in hammering the Des Moines Register. Now the official Iowa Republican Party is joining him in ripping the state’s biggest newspaper. What prompted the Iowa GOP to swing away at the paper is the Des Moines Register writing a scathing editorial attacking Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA). The Register wrote on Monday: U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley is apparently taking civility lessons from Donald Trump. In an

Vote; 18 Minutes to Boy Band

ABC´s Good Morning America, a two hour-long program, on Tuesday completely ignored the Senate´s vote on Planned Parenthood, yet devoted 18 minutes of air time to boy band One Direction. Only CBS This Morning bothered with the Republican effort to defund the abortion group, allowing a meager 25 seconds. Even in that scant amount of time, co-host Norah O´Donnell managed to spin the undercover footage of the organization in a friendly way. O´Donnell opined, "The health provider is under fire for the way it gives fetal tissue to medical researchers." Health provider? Not abortion provider? The group "gives" fetal tissue?

Right Turn is on vacation until August 7, but until then each day this week we will look at one of the GOP presidential candidates and examine his path to the nomination. Today we look at Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.). If Rubio wins the nomination, it will be because: 1. Hillary Clinton is the Democratic nominee, perfectly setting up his argument that the 2016 race is about the past vs. the future. 2. Rubio convinces voters that unlike then-junior Sen. Barack Obama, he has a record that demonstrates his leadership skills. 3. In the debates, Rubio throws some punches, putting to rest the idea

The pro-life advocates behind the four shocking videos exposing Planned Parenthood selling the body parts of aborted babies for research have released a 5th video today that catches a Planned Parenthood official discussing how the abortion business sells “fully intact” aborted babies. The video, which follows Senate Democrats defeating a bill to de-fund Planned Parenthood, makes it appear the Planned Parenthood abortion business may be selling the “fully intact” bodies of unborn babies purposefully born alive and left to die. Planned Parenthood could be breaking the federal law known as the Born Alive Infants Protection Act that requires abortion clinics, hospitals and

Washington --Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said Monday he believes Republicans should shut down the government rather than fund Planned Parenthood, the health services group that is facing scrutiny after undercover videos of its officials emerged. (Snip) On the vote to defund Planned Parenthood in the Senate on Thursday, opponents failed to garner the votes needed to pass a procedural hurdle, and some conservatives in both chambers have called for congressional leaders to attach overall funding of the budget to defunding the organization when the votes take place after the August recess. Trump said Monday on conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt´s

Boy, was I wrong about

Donald Trump is now doubling the rest of the Republican field in the average of the last five national polls. And polling out of early states like New Hampshire puts him in the pole position in those places too. All of which makes having written a piece on June 17 headlined, "Why no one should take Donald Trump seriously, in one very simple chart" that argued why, well, no one should take Donald Trump seriously, pretty embarrassing. Not to mention wrong. In case your detective work is at "True Detective" season 2 levels -- for non-show watchers, that means not so good

The man who was paid $50,000 to lure Cecil the lion out of a wildlife preserve so that the animal could be killed by American dentist Walter Palmer claims he did nothing wrong, according to NBC News. Theo Bronkhorst, 55, a professional Zimbabwean hunter, pleaded not guilty last week on a charge of failing to prevent an illegal hunt, the Associated Press reported. He was released on $1,000 bail and is due back in court Wednesday, according to NBC. He regrets targeting the iconic lion, but insists that his was a legal operation. “I do not feel I have done

So today Obama released the EPA’s final rule for the “Clean Power Plan” that gives the EPA the power to restructure our electric utility industry nationwide. By their own admission, full implementation of the emissions targets will avert only 0.018 degrees C of warming by the year 2100. I’m sure we’ll all notice that much change in temps! But at least now we’ve “taken action” to “save the planet.” The final rule is nearly 1,600 pages long, and the regulatory impact analysis is nearly 400 pages long, so it will take a while to figure out some of the fine points

Being national chair of a U.S. political party is usually a thankless, dead-end job. [Snip] If your party does occupy the Oval Office, all major decisions are made over there. You become a PR echo chamber and do grunt work. Barack Obama chose Debbie Wasserman Schultz not because her name sounds like a Miami law firm. But because 1) she´s a she. Also, 2) she was willing to do the gritty party/media work to build a higher political profile to suit her political ambitions. (Remember, Sen. Marco Rubio says he´s not running for re-election next year.) That profile strategy can

Why Collectors Are Holding
Off On Cuba’s Old Cars

Contrary to popular belief, car collectors will not be descending on Cuba to buy up the thousands of antique American cars still on the road in the Caribbean nation. “We just don’t see it,” said McKeel Hagerty, CEO of Hagerty Insurance, which specializes in insuring collector cars. Cuba is a bubble of anachronisms, one of the most obvious being the thousands American cars from the 1940s and 1950s, which still make up a significant form of transportation for the island nation. The time-warp feel to the place stems from the imposition of the U.S. embargo in 1962, during which American

When America is growing and happy, the country is sort of like a sprinter’s track. As Robert H. Wiebe put it in his classic book “The Segmented Society,” when things were going well the diverse country comprised “countless isolated lanes where Americans, singly or in groups, dashed like rows of racers toward their goals.” In times of scarcity and alienation, it’s more like bumper cars. Different groups feel their lanes are blocked, so they start crashing into one another. The cultural elites start feuding with the financial elites. The lower middle class starts feuding with the poor. A few decades ago the

Obama Administration Urges States
to Cut Health Insurers’ Requests
for Big Rate Increases
New York Times, by Robert Pear    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 8/4/2015 9:18:37 AM     Post Reply
Hoping to avoid another political uproar over the Affordable Care Act, the Obama administration is trying to persuade states to cut back big rate increases requested by many health insurance companies for 2016. In calling for aggressive regulation of rates, federal officials are setting up a potential clash with insurers. Some carriers said they paid out more in claims than they collected in premiums last year, so they lost money on policies sold in the new public marketplaces. After finding that new customers were sicker than expected, some health plans have sought increases of 10 percent to 40 percent or more. Administration

Why Planned Parenthood Can’t Donate
Tissue Harvested From Babies
The Federalist, by Katie Geary    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 8/4/2015 8:47:17 AM     Post Reply
If you haven’t watched the damning videos of Planned Parenthood officials discussing fetal tissue donation (or, in plain language, exchanging aborted babies’ body parts for money), you should watch them now before you read further. The first alarming question is whether Planned Parenthood illegally sells aborted fetuses’ organs and tissue. This is what Planned Parenthood and its defenders have repeatedly focused on, insisting that they are compliant with all laws. But it is what precedes that “fetal tissue donation” that needs attention. Specifically, does Planned Parenthood regularly flout the federal ban on partial-birth abortion using loopholes? How do they get away with

There´s no doubt that Democrats in the Senate are still very fond of Joe Biden. But that doesn´t mean they want him to run for president. Or that they really want to talk about it. "I love Joe!" was the refrain on Capitol Hill Monday amid speculation about his potential 2016 presidential campaign, as Biden´s former colleagues were chased down hallways and into elevators and asked about the vice president´s future. But pressed on whether Biden should actually jump into the race, a dozen Democratic members said that it would be a personal decision for the vice president, and left it at

Tomorrow around 5 p.m., Fox News executives are scheduled to gather in Roger Ailes´s second-floor conference room at the network´s midtown headquarters to decide the lineup of candidates who will participate in the first Republican debate on Thursday in Cleveland. Fox’s decision to limit the prime-time field to ten candidates has become a flash point in the GOP. Perhaps the biggest point of contention: The network’s refusal to tell campaigns which polls it will be using to select the participants for the 9 p.m. debate moderated by Megyn Kelly, Bret Baier, and Chris Wallace (the remaining seven candidates will face
