    Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson defended his pro-life position this week in Iowa after facing criticism for comments he made about the pro-life movement and Terri Schiavo. “My position is that abortion should not be done,” Carson told Bloomberg Politics. “I believe that it’s murder and I don’t think that’s hateful speech. That’s just telling the truth.” As evidence of his pro-life position, Carson, a retired neurosurgeon, told people to look at his life. Carson said he is the only candidate running for president who has saved people’s lives. “I’m the only one who has ever operated on premature babies...
  • Following his father’s footsteps: the path of Jeb Bush (50 yrs of power-hungry Bushes is enough!)

    THE vice president of the United States was unhappy. In 1983, a "Conservative Digest" poll of conservatives found that 64 percent of right-leaning party leaders wanted George H.W. Bush replaced on the 1984 Reagan ticket. "Light reading," Bush scribbled across a cover sheet as he sent a copy to his friend James Baker - adding a frowning face. Reagan would have none of it - he liked and appreciated Bush. But the gulf between establishment and insurgent Republicans has only grown in the ensuing decades. The elder Bush's struggles through the years with a restive right shed light on the...

    TAMPA, Florida, November 19, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) - Dr. Ben Carson has been in the center of a firestorm since a Florida newspaper reported that he referred to the Terri Schiavo case as "much ado about nothing." Yesterday morning, in a comment sent exclusively to LifeSiteNews, Dr. Carson said his remarks had been "taken out of context and misinterpreted." "When I used the term 'much ado about nothing,' my point was that the media tried to create the impression that the pro-life community was nutty and going way overboard with the support of the patient," Dr. Carson told LifeSiteNews yesterday. Some...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., November 17, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) - The words of Dr. Ben Carson, and the actions of Gov. Jeb Bush, disqualify them both from serving as president of the United States, a leading pro-life leader said today. "We have seen what it is like to have a president who does not value every life equally, and we certainly do not need another," said Troy Newman, the president of Operation Rescue. "In my opinion, Ben Carson's statement dismissing Terri's life as 'nothing,' and Jeb Bush's failure to take action to save Terri, has disqualified them both from the office of president."...

    Ben Carson may be a pro-life Republican presidential candidate when it comes to the issue of abortions, but new comments the doctor made over the weekend about the Terri Schiavo case are causing concerns for pro-life voters. Carson thinks the federal and state governments overreached when they attempted to protect Terri Schiavo from a painful 14-day starvation and dehydration death. Despite the best efforts of pro-life lawmakers in Congress and the Florida state legislature, where lawmakers approved pro-life laws to allow Terri’s family to take their case to federal courts and to allow then-Governor Jeb Bush to try to protect...

    Jeb Bush may be low-energy, but when it comes to Syrian refugees, he isn’t low-empathy. Unlike nearly all of his rivals for the Republican presidential nomination, Bush said Tuesday that he would not support efforts to end refugee resettlement.“The answer to this is not to ban people from coming,” Bush told Bloomberg Television’s With All Due Respect. “The answer is to lead, to resolve the problem in Syria.”Bush emphasized that he wanted any refugees resettled in the United States to be rigorously vetted — which is already standard policy in the States — but said support for refugees was “a...

    Jeb Bush has fallen to eighth place in the race for the 2016 GOP nomination, according to a new national poll released Tuesday. Bush, once considered a front-runner in the race, was the first choice for President of only 3% of likely Republican voters surveyed in the University of Massachusetts survey, marking the former Florida governor's worst poll levels since he announced his candidacy earlier this year.

    Jeb Bush is promising his donors that he'll get better at debating - and he's urging any "nervous Nellies" among his supporters to "chill out" as he embarks on a reboot of his campaign. "I'm going to win New Hampshire, I just feel it," Bush told donors on a conference call Wednesday, phoning in from his campaign bus in between stops in the Granite State. "I know in my heart that we're on the right track," he added, according to an audio recording of the call obtained by NBC News. But Bush also acknowledged the drubbing he's taken in the...

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is reportedly preparing a relaunch of his 2016 GOP presidential campaign message. Bush is launching a "Jeb Can Fix It" tour on Monday in Florida, according to Reuters, in coordination with a new e-book detailing his time as governor. The news service reported Monday that Bush is starting his 2016 reinvention with speech aimed at presenting himself as a problem-solver. The remarks will be a "rejection of the 'competing pessimisms' created in the [President] Obama era in favor of leadership that solves problems," a campaign aide told Reuters. Bush's new 730-page e-book, "Reply All," compiles...

    HOUSTON Right to Rise USA, the super PAC supporting former Florida governor Jeb Bush's campaign for president, is considering deploying ground staff to key states after focusing most heavily on running television ads so far. It's a notable strategic consideration that comes as Bush's campaign for the Republican presidential nomination has struggled to gain traction in early-voting states and as it makes moves to curtail costs in what began as a sprawling operation.

    Three generations of the most famous family in Texas politics are planning to descend on Houston in the coming days to rally with major donors to Jeb Bush's presidential campaign and try to raise more money for the former Florida governor. The weekend gathering, once billed as a "special appreciation event" for Jeb Bush's biggest financial backers, comes at a precarious time for his White House hopes. His campaign announced Friday it was making significant cutbacks, reportedly reducing its payroll by 40 percent, trimming travel costs by 20 percent and scaling back 45 percent on some other costs.

    HOUSTON -- Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush went after 2016 rival Ted Cruz over the weekend at a campaign stop in Charleston, South Carolina, by portraying the Texan as hypocritical and two-faced. "The guy (Cruz) that made this comment was supportive of the guy (John Roberts) he was critical of," Bush told Rep. Tim Gowdy and the audience at Bishop England High School. He was referring to the moment in the second Republican presidential debate in Californiawhen Cruz said, "Yes, it was a mistake" for President George W. Bush to have nominated Chief Justice John Roberts to the Supreme Court....

    The long-running feud between Jeb Bush and Donald Trump escalated yet again Saturday, with the former Florida governor releasing a two-minute video on social media mocking the billionaire's fitness to be commander-in-chief. *snip* The clip is the latest salvo in the Bush-Trump rivalry, which has often been marked by bitter and personal exchanges between the two prominent Republican presidential candidates. On Friday, Trump suggested Bush's brother, former President George W. Bush, shared in the blame for the 9/11 terrorist attacks because they occurred during his presidency. Saturday's round centered on a video set to the tune of circus music that...

"While this question was not sanctioned by the campaign, we can't help but notice Mr. Trump does seem to be very sensitive about being challenged by women." Bush's campaign confirmed to CNN that Batchelder has volunteered at events for the candidate but has never been paid as staff.

    Breitbart's Big Government ^ | October 12, 2015 | Neil Munro
    A new Internet-ad by Jeb Bushs independent PAC erases fourth-place challenger Carly Fiorina from the GOPs 2016 line-up. The 15-second ad shows Bushs eight male rivals Donald Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Ben Carson, etc. but noticeably excludes the one woman in the race. Thats unexpected, because Fiorina currently leads fifth-place Bush, 8.9 percent to 7.1 percent, in RCPs average of primary polls, following Fiorinas highly rated performance in the GOPs second debate. Maybe Jeb is just trying to forget the last debate?, said Sarah Isgur Flores, Fiorinas deputy campaign manager. Or maybe they cant read New Hampshire...
