The internet exploded after news broke earlier today that a new extension for web browser Google Chrome will, when downloaded by an user, change the words pro-life to anti-choice on any web page. An extension, that as the creator who partnered with the National Institute for Reproductive Health Action Fund and who wishes to remain anonymous states, is useful in winning the war against those who stand against a women's right to choose. Arguing that the term pro-life, demonizes those who are pro-choice, "by suggesting that in their support of a woman's right to choose what is best for her own life, they also advocate for death in some way."
Calling it a powerful tool in the fight against women health rights. Instead of what it truly is, pinheaded political correctness run amok.
In historic fashion the South Carolina people have selected the next Republican nominee for president, Donald Trump. With Trump winning the state after receiving 32.5% of the vote, 10 points better than Marco Rubio who finished with 22.5% of the vote, and third place finisher Ted Cruz who finished with 22.3% of the vote. Meaning that Donald Trump now leads all Republican candidates with 67 delegates, followed by Ted Cruz with 11 delegates, and Marco Rubio with 10.
Yet, while it is true that South Carolina has successfully selected every Republican nominee in our nation's history, there are significant truths inside the remarkable results of the South Carolina primary that may suggest that this race is unlike any other in the nation's history.
News came to light late last night that Dr. Ben Carson and Senator Ted Cruz had an intimate closed door meeting inside a storage closet to discuss their now long running feud over what Carson has been calling 'dirty tricks' by Cruz during the campaign. Especially in Iowa, where Cruz took advantage of Dr. Carson's cryptic actions and CNN reporting to suggest that Carson's Iowa supporters should support Cruz instead. With the meeting by all accounts, despite lasting 30 minutes which was much longer than the agreed upon 5, not going well for Cruz who was hoping to patch up the relationship with the neurosurgeon ahead of today's South Carolina primary.
Since while feuds between political candidates are nothing new in the current political climate and are therefore normally insignificant, case and point Jeb Bush and Donald Trump, the feud between Carson and Cruz is remarkably significant for several reasons.
If it wasn't bad enough that our 2nd amendment rights were under siege from a President and a federal government that our completely out of control. Yesterday we learned that our right to free speech and privacy, rights guaranteed to us in the 1st and 4th amendments, are now under assault by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
The FBI by deciding to make their legal actions and negotiations with Apple Inc., makers of the popular iPhone, public instead of private as was their right to do. They revealed to the public their attempt to force Apple to create a backdoor in their cellphone security encryption that would enable the FBI to listen, track, record, and spy on all American citizens through their iPhones without a warrant, all in the name of national security.
This suggests that not only does the government want to bring George Orwell's monstrous fantasy world detailed in his book 1984 to life, but because Apple Inc. refused to cooperate the potential legal battle that co…
It seems that Donald Trump is deft at picking fights, but his latest opponent came as a true surprise. Thursday Pope Francis while aboard the papal jet made comments disparaging and questioning the Donald's faith. Suggesting that the Republican candidate wasn't a Christian because of his stance on the border. Stating:
"A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian."
Remarks that Trump was quick to respond to Thursday evening in his usual rancorous and entertaining style. Stating that no religious leader has a right to question another man's faith, calling the comments "disgraceful."
Yet, however disgraceful or not this exchange between the most unlikely of opponents is, it raises an interesting question for Catholics and Christians of all stripes. Namely, is it against the Christian faith to support securing the border?
It is no secret that Donald Trump and Jeb Bush hate each other. However, while this divide between the two candidates has remained largely personal, this past week it became more substantial. As the two candidates demonstrated the growing divide between Republicans on how best to understand the fundamentals of, and handle the Syrian crisis.
If you tuned into the NBA All-Star game instead, or were simply unlucky enough to miss the GOP debate this past Saturday night, you missed one of the best debates in a long long time. As all the candidates came out swinging early, hard, and often, as they made their case in the highly contentious primary state of South Carolina. Here is a look at how each candidate fared during the outstanding GOP debate, and predictions about how each candidate will fare in the South Carolina Primary.
The polls finally got one right, Sanders beat Hillary in the Democrat race by 22 points; while longtime front-runner Donald Trump scored his first election win by trumping John Kasich in New Hampshire by 19 points. Rendering the primary results for both parties in New Hampshire, predictably mundane. However, as the races shift gears to Nevada and then South Carolina there are three critical lessons that can be learned from the New Hampshire primary.
In a campaign stop in New Hampshire, one day before the state's primary elections, Ted Cruz in typical Texas fashion praised New Hampshire's gun legislation and gun control measures. While at the same time slamming President Obama for his unconstitutional attempts to tyrannically use executive orders to take away the American people's 2nd Amendment right to bear arms.
Yet, while the Texas Senator's remarks on the issue of gun control were poignant and remarkably witty, with Cruz stating:
"You know, one of the great things about the Granite State is that you all define gun control the same way we do in Texas. Hitting What you aim at."
The remarks that Senator Cruz made on the next issue he took aim at stole the headlines. As the Texas Senator lent his astonishing support to a women's right to choose.
Congratulations to the Denver Broncos for winning their 3rd Superbowl in franchise history, to Peyton Manning for cementing his place in the Football Hall of Fame, and to Von Miller who was incredible in Superbowl L and rightfully named Superbowl MVP. However, the Superbowl this year was far from simply the most amazing sporting event in the world, it also presented us with a critical lesson on character and true sportsmanship.
When the most irrelevant candidates are deemed by pundits to be the stars of the show, and the leading candidates continue to repeat their scripts over, and over, and over again, it can turn even the most crucial of debates into a feckless snooze fest; which is exactly what we got Saturday night. However, while the GOP debate Saturday night was mind numbing, all is not lost. Here is the exclusive behind the scene's look at the real debate as it unfolded in real time Saturday night, as told in each candidates own words.
With the GOP debate scheduled to begin at 8pm tonight on ABC, the attacks and the rumors have been flying between the candidates as the race begins to tighten and each state primary becomes more and more important. Yet, what Ron Paul stated about Ted Cruz late Friday night might just trump all the attacks and all the rumors currently out there in both dubiousness and impact.
CNN host Brooke Baldwin asked supporters of Bernie Sanders, a self avowed socialist, to define socialism. Socialism: The step between capitalism and communism, as progressives like Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders attempt to implement communism, not through a revolution, but through the democratic process. Listen to what Bernie Sander's supporters came up with.
As the New Hampshire primaries get closer and closer, and with the Iowa Caucuses now over, it is important to reflect on the astonishing effects of the remarkable events that transpired this past Monday for both the Republican and Democrat Parties in Iowa. Since the Iowa Caucuses highlighted surprising shifts in sentiment among both Republican and Democrat voters that the media and the polls, even up until this point, have been unable to effectively capture. So let's examine the astonishing effects that will continue to have an important impact on both party's primary races, as the primaries continue on to New Hampshire.
We were all told what the game tape was supposed to look like, for weeks now the pundits made it clear that front runners Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton were going to win handily in Iowa. After all, Hillary Clinton may have some warts but she isn't a self-avowed socialist, and Donald Trump had been leading by a healthy margin going into last night's Iowa Caucuses. Yet, despite all the information, all the polling science, and all the expertise that went into predicting the results of the Iowa Caucuses. The results were far more fascinating than any could have imagined. Its why they say: the game still has to be played, because anything can happen.
The Iowa Caucuses are now underway and with half the vote in, Hillary Clinton is showing a slight lead over Democrat Party rival Bernie Sanders. However, new details about the content of the emails found on Hillary Clinton's private server that was used during her time as Secretary of State have surfaced. Details that should make it clear to everyone that Hillary Clinton through her actions during her time as Secretary of State relinquished her right to be Commander-in-Chief, the next President of the United States of America.
Just hours before the Iowa Caucuses begin a story that could upset Trump's chances in the state has come to light. Former field organizer for the Trump campaign in Davenport, Iowa Elizabeth Mae Davidson has suggested that the reason for her recent termination was not because she broke campaign rules, but because she is a woman. A story that as Donald Trump himself admits "could damage my chances." Davidson's firing came after a Sunday news report surfaced in the New York Times suggesting that there were major flaws and problems with the senior leadership of Trump's campaign in Iowa. Davidson's claims should have everyone asking, is this simply a matter of a disgruntled employee, or is Donald Trump waging a war on women?
