Hispanic leaders say Republican Party must condemn Trump

WASHINGTON (AP) — Hispanic leaders are warning of harm to Republican White House hopes unless the party’s presidential contenders do more to condemn Donald Trump, a businessman turned presidential candidate who’s refusing to apologize for calling Mexican immigrants rapists and drug dealers.

Trump’s comments, delivered in his announcement speech last month, have haunted the GOP for much of the last two weeks and dominated Spanish-language media. It’s bad timing for a Republican Party that has invested significantly in Hispanic outreach in recent years, given the surging influence of the minority vote.

Yet several Republican candidates have avoided the issue altogether, while those who have weighed in have declined to criticize Trump as strongly as many Hispanic leaders would like. SOURCE


Donald Trump is standing his ground and I really like that from him. As long as he sticks to his guns and doesn’t fold like Joe *YOU LIE* Wilson Trump will bring confidence and enthusiasm to Conservatives and to at least a few other candidates.

In a recent interview on Fox News, conservative firebrand Ted Cruz insisted that Trump should not apologize.

“I like Donald Trump,” said Cruz, a Texas senator who is Hispanic. “I think he’s terrific. I think he’s brash. I think he speaks the truth. And I think that NBC is engaging in political correctness that is silly and that is wrong.”

And that is why I am, at this point of the game, supporting Ted Cruz.  Continue reading

Catholic leaders press GOP to heed pope on climate, poor

Catholic leaders press GOP to heed pope on climate, poor

Virgin Mary

ANKENY, Iowa (AP) — Roman Catholic leaders in the early voting state of Iowa implored candidates for president Thursday to take up Pope Francis’ call for “profound political courage” by focusing their campaigns as much on improving the environment and income inequality as they have on opposing gay marriage and abortion in past elections.

The vocal pivot from such traditional social issues marks the first time U.S. Catholic bishops have publicly asked those seeking the White House to heed the admonitions of Francis’ June encyclical, said Bishop Richard Pates of Des Moines. SOURCE

I’m pretty sure there are *some* that will start up with all of that BS about the *separation of church and state*, and how it’s the law of the land and how “It’s in the Constitution”.

Well, it’s NOT in the Constitution, not in any way, shape, form or fashion, and I have, in public forum, challenged atheists to show me where in the United States Constitution those words are written when they wanted our City Council to stop opening meetings with a brief invocation.

Well, I was told to *look it up for myself*, so me being as prepared with facts in public as I am on this blog, I produced a pocket copy of the United States Constitution and then again challenged these people to SHOW ME exactly where these words were written or to stand in front of that forum as the uneducated and reprehensible LIARS they were.  Continue reading

Everything The White House Told You About Bowe Bergdahl Was Wrong

Everything The White House Told You About Bowe Bergdahl Was Wrong

His release was supposed to be the political masterstroke in the last days of the war. But the war is still going, and Bergdahl is going to court.

In the space of nine months, he went from being heralded at the White House to facing prison for life.

On Wednesday, the U.S. military charged Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, the former Taliban captive who was freed in exchange for five Guantanamo Bay detainees, with desertion and misbehaving before the enemy. SOURCE

Bowe Bergdahl DeserterIf Barrack Hussein Obama had a brain he would be dangerous. Bowe Bergdahl was traded back to the United States for 5 Taliban commanders, Generals if you will, and it turns out that Bergdahl is nothing more than a traitor to this nation.

That’s some jam-up intelligence work by Obama and his crew, trading off 5 Taliban commanders for one weak-minded piece of disgraceful garbage. I’m fairly sure the Libs, Dems, Progs, Commies, Socialists and Marxists that comprise the Dem Party are *wetting* themselves in glee at the political astuteness exhibited by our anti-American pResident.

The story says that if convicted Bergdahl could face life in prison.

I am of the opinion that he should face a firing squad or the gallows but in this PC world of same-sex marriage and abortion on demand that the Democrats have foisted of on us I am relatively certain that won’t happen.  Continue reading

Supreme Court says Texas abortion law on hold; clinics off the hook for now

Supreme Court says Texas abortion law on hold; clinics off the hook for now

AUSTIN—The Supreme Court issued an order Monday that means Texas abortion clinics don’t have to meet strict new standards for the time being.

The order indicates that clinics will not have to comply with new building and operating standards until the full court can weigh whether or not to take up the case on appeal.

The order follows a ruling by the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans earlier this month upholding a Texas law that would have forced more than half of the state’s remaining abortion clinics to close. SOURCE

Abortion 5Abortion stops a beating heart and is nothing short of MURDER!

I must have a different perspective than *some* males, the ones that feel that it’s OK to get a woman pregnant because there’s always the *abortion* option, but I’m not a screaming Liberal, I am a MAN that accepts responsibility.

I could never have an association of any kind with an *abortion on demand* woman, it’s just not the way I was raised, and thank God my children are responsible parents and are raising their children to become responsible adults.

Texas AG Paxton: Religious objections can be used to deny marriage license to same-sex couples

Texas AG Paxton: Religious objections can be used to deny marriage license to same-sex couples

LUBBOCK, Texas – Texas’ conservative Republican Attorney General Ken Paxton called the Supreme Court decision giving same-sex couples the right to marry a “lawless ruling” and said state workers can cite their religious objections in denying marriage licenses.

He warned in a statement Sunday that any clerk, justice of the peace or other administrator who declines to issue a license to a same-sex couple could face litigation or a fine.

But in the nonbinding legal opinion requested by Republican Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, Paxton says “numerous lawyers” stand ready to defend, free of charge, any public official refusing to grant one. SOURCE

My personal feeling is that the SCOTUS is attempting to legislate from the bench and that this is a move towards forced political correctness for all and done to appease the 3.5% of the Americans population that willfully admits that they are *different*. Yeah, different.

As always, feel free to comment as you see fit, your opinion matters, but if you come out on this blog or if you swear your everlasting affection to the SCOTUS for their decision in this matter, don’t think your position will go unchallenged. I have some highly opinionated and knowledgeable readers.

Do you agree with the Supreme Court and their ruling legalizing same-sex marriage?
