NICE WORK, LI'L FALWELL: Evangelical Trump Drops F-Bomb in Major Speech With Kids in Audience

Last week, Iowa evangelical leader Robert Vander Plaats expressed surprise and confusion over the endorsement of Donald Trump by Jerry Falwell's son:

I’m just confused and flabbergasted by the endorsement. I don’t think his endorsement is going to move people. I think when people see Trump is not a conservative—he’s pro-choice. He’s not going to stand up for marriage. He’s not going to stand up to an activist court. He wants to make deals with the establishment and he’s shown judgment and temperament that people are very concerned [about].

As if to reinforce the notion that Trump is an opportunistic chameleon, today Mr. Trump dropped the F-bomb in a major speech in front of thousands of children.

Yes, Rubio's Amnesty bill provided legal status, work permits for criminals

By Jeremy Beck

Fact Check's Robert Farley looked into Ted Cruz's claim that Marco Rubio's immigration bill would have granted legal status (and work permits) to criminal aliens. Farley's piece, "Cruz Distorts Rubio's Immigration Stance," was picked up by USA Today and The Huffington Post among others.

Farley concluded that, "one could argue that Rubio’s plan would allow those convicted of some misdemeanor crimes to obtain legal residency, but Cruz’s blanket claim that Rubio “advocates amnesty for criminals who are here illegally” omits the criminal exceptions that Rubio has outlined."

U.N. TO OBAMA BFF IRAN: Hey, if you could stop raping and executing 9-year olds, that would be greaaaaaaaaat

By Russ Read

The U.N. body charged with protecting the rights of children has told the government of Iran that its laws allowing sex with girls as young as 9-years-old and capital punishment of minors must be changed.

The U.N. Committee on the Rights of the Child announced it’s condemnation of Iran’s practices Thursday after 18 experts completed a review of 14 countries, including Iran. Iran’s current law allows the state to execute minors for capital crimes, a violation of international agreements as well as the forced marriage of young girls.

We have communications back and forth to the President from Hillary Clinton's private email, we have 1300 sensitive documents, 22 classified at the highest level, this is well past anyone claiming that they didn't know.

In this case she made a choice. She made a choice to have a private server, she made a choice to use it with highly sensitive material, she made a choice to receive and re-transmit documents that should have been classified and have later been classified. These choices are what the prosecution will really be about." --Rep. Darrell Issa

HIJRAH: Why Is Small Town America Being Flooded With Islamic "Refugees"?

By Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Looks like my old stomping grounds in Montana are heating up. People there are not taking Obama’s plan to force refugees on them lying down. There was a protest in Missoula, Montana at 10 a.m. this morning over that very issue. It is just one of many battles brewing out there in small town America.

Small towns in the sparsely populated parts of America are the perfect place to relocate these refugees. Especially if your agenda includes politically terraforming the country. The West is historically conservative in their politics. Many are Republicans and Libertarians. Even the Democrats hearken back to an earlier time when they were more conservative in nature. Obama and the Democrats can’t have that. They need to have an entire country willing to submit to Marxist diktats. They need areas seeded with those who will vote Democrat and ensure that they stay in power no matter what.

VILE: Torrent of Appalling, Anti-Israel Screeds Discovered in Hillary Email Dump

Server dump reveals Clinton confidants savaging Prime Minister and plotting against Israel

Earlier this week, I wrote about Hillary Clinton’s interactions with Sid Blumenthal and her troubling praise of his son, Max Blumenthal’s anti-Israel agenda. Mr. Blumenthal, one of her most trusted advisers, sent her dozens of anti-Israel articles, ideas and advice during her time as Secretary of State. But the stream of anti-Israel advice received by Ms. Clinton was much more comprehensive. Now, we see emails between Ms. Clinton and other advisors and the results are equally appalling.

"Select, Do Not Settle"

By Dan from New York

When I was a kid growing up in NYC, a big men’s clothing store (Barney’s) used this as its tagline: “Select, Don’t Settle.” Many years later, the thought now applies to Ted Cruz. It about sums it up for me. He’s going to be a great president. The antidote to eight dismal years of Obama’s regime. And best of all...

RUBIO ON UNIVISION: I Will Keep Obama's Executive Amnesty In Place Until We Pass Amnesty

By Julia Hahn

In a little-noticed interview late last year with Univision’s Jorge Ramos, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) declared that, as President, he would keep Barack Obama’s executive amnesty for DREAMers in place until it was permanently codified through legislation.

Rubio said, in part:

QOTD: "After suppressing his inner rage at having been beaten for about 24 hours, Trump broke loose with a bizarre Twitter barrage accusing Cruz of having stolen the caucus from him. Trump’s accusation of fraud are predictably lame, bitter, and lacking in credibility. Since no one is claiming that Cruz’s people actually stole votes or falsified the results, all this amounts to is comical and childish sour grapes, especially since they come from a candidate that has spent the last six months hurling abuse at any and all rivals.

Perhaps Trump’s fans will buy into his sense of grievance, but it remains to be seen whether this sort of thing, which reflects the flip side of the confident, brash personality that voters seemed to like, will do him any good. But whether this is one more misstep by Trump in the wake of his foolish debate boycott or not, it’s pretty clear that Cruz won’t be forming any coalition with him." --Jonathan S. Tobin

GOPe FAUX CONTROVERSY #705: CNN and Rubio Campaign spread rumors that Carson was dropping out

Renee Nal, writing at Trevor Loudon's site, offers a comprehensive timeline of the rumors that spread like wildfire during the Iowa Caucus votes that Ben Carson had dropped out.

The always erudite and reasoned intellect known as Donald J. Trump, who recently likened Carson to a child molester, immediately called Cruz a cheater and demanded that Iowa re-convene their cauci.

But the facts, as Nal documents, are very different than the reality distortion field that often surrounds Mr. Trump.

"A REAL DUMMY": Mr. Trump's Impressive Talent as a Lying Bully Exposed (Chapter #633)

The tireless Jeff Dunetz has broken another intriguing scoop regarding Donald J. Trump's impressive talent as a world-class lying bully.

The backdrop of the story is simple: a political consultant named Cheri Jacobus was approached by the Trump campaign in May of 2015. A few days ago, though, the Trump campaign recounted the employment situation differently:

THE REAL MARCO RUBIO IN A SINGLE TWEET: "Legalization Comes First -- It Is Not Conditional"

Marco Rubio has spent his entire Senate career fighting tooth and nail for Amnesty.

In advancing his "Gang of Eight" immigration scheme, he collaborated with the loathsome Chuck Schumer, along with Dick Durbin, Michael Bennet, Bob ("Want some candy, little girl?") Menendez, Jeff Flake, and the same-sex senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham.

Most importantly, however, Rubio told a Spanish language television audience his real plan for legalizing the 20 million or more illegal aliens in the U.S.:

QOTD: "Love him or hate him, Cruz knows the Constitution. By high school he had memorized the thing, thanks to an after-school program run by the Free Enterprise Institute, which had the teenage Cruz studying the Federalist Papers and traveling the state with a troupe of like-minded adolescents billed as the “Constitutional Corroborators.” His undergraduate thesis, at Princeton, was about the historical and theoretical underpinnings of the Ninth and Tenth Amendments. After attending law school, at Harvard, he landed clerkships in a federal appeals court, then at the Supreme Court. And so on.

In light of his lifelong obsession with the subject, I am reasonably confident that Cruz’s diabolical plans, and thirst for world domination, are ultimately constrained by his own fealty to the supreme law of the land. What’s more, Cruz has specific expertise in the constitutional limits of the office he’s currently aiming for. His arguments against the president’s executive overreach have been backed by unique professional credentials, which actually exceed Obama’s. Both men are graduates of Harvard Law, and have been professors of constitutional law. Cruz is also the person who has successfully argued, at the Supreme Court, that an executive order issued by George W. Bush amounted to an unconstitutional violation of the separation of powers." --Erica Grieder
