Former Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) wants the federal government to revoke the nonprofit status of abortion provider Planned Parenthood (PP), as well as its associated political action organization.
Perry and Trump have been engaged in a rhetorical battle for weeks. At the end of Perry’s speech Wednesday at the Yale Club in New York City, he was questioned about Trump’s remarks. Grinning as he listened to the question, Perry quipped, “Let’s get a pull-up bar out there and see who can do more pull-ups,” as the audience roared with cheers.
The alleged hacking followed several weeks of extremely negative press for Planned Parenthood in response to videos released by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP). Intriguingly, while PP’s website does not show any negative changes from the alleged hackers, it does display a message that many critics are challenging is a public relations stunt. Even if PP was legitimately targeted by hackers over the weekend, there are a number of indicators that at this point, their website issues have been deliberately triggered.
Republican Presidential candidate and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina will deliver a speech Monday evening at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library that will call for the United States to maintain its military supremacy, reject the Iran nuclear deal currently being debated, and “push back against rising Chinese aggression,” according to prepared remarks provided to Breitbart News by the Fiorina campaign.
Former Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) has joined the chorus of critics responding to former Gov. Mike Huckabee’s (R-AR) use of a Holocause reference regarding the Iran nuclear deal, saying that Huckabee’s “inflammatory rhetoric” was getting in the way of finding an actual solution.
Former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-FL) distanced himself from comments made by former Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-AR), his competitor in the Republican presidential primary, regarding the Obama administration’s nuclear deal with Iran, although he shares Huckabee’s criticism for the deal itself.
With Florida’s August 2016 primary still more than a year away, it would be highly unlikely for any candidate to have the race sewn up already, but this poll does settle some questions about how the race would be affected if some of the potential candidates jumped in: former Attorney General Bill McCollum (R-FL) and Rep. Gwen Graham (D-FL).
Republican Presidential candidate Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI) has cancelled his campaign events scheduled for today in order to attend the funeral of one of the five service members killed in the Chattanooga, Tennessee shooting, Breitbart News has learned.
Perry and Trump have been engaged in a weeks-long war of words. Trump has taken swipes at Perry and other Republican candidates on the issues of immigration and border security, and Perry has fired back that Trump doesn’t understand what he is talking about, and that he is unfit to be Commander-in-Chief after attacking Sen. John McCain’s (R-AZ) service record last weekend.
After Trump referred to illegal immigrants from Mexico as “rapists” in his campaign announcement speech, Perry said that Trump’s remarks “did not reflect the Republican Party.” Trump fired back by attacking Perry’s record on border security, and Perry posted a YouTube video inviting Trump to “take a trip down to Texas sometime.” Trump is reportedly going to do just that, with a visit scheduled on Thursday to Laredo, as Breitbart Texas reported.
Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina will deliver a foreign policy speech on Monday from the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Breitbart News has exclusively learned.
Carly Fiorina Criticizes Democratic Party’s ‘Absolute Deafening Silence’ on Planned Parenthood Videos
In her video, Fiorina appears with Frederick Douglass Foundation Chairman and Online for Life Outreach Director, Reverend Dean Nelson, Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser, National Black Pro-Life Coalition President Catherine Davis, Dr. Charmaine Yoest of Americans United for Life Action, and Lori Hoye and Pastor Walter Hoye of the Issues4Life Foundation, “to decry the moral depravity” shown by Planned Parenthood.
As Breitbart News reported, López-Cantera is Florida’s first Hispanic Lieutenant Governor and previously served in the Florida House of Representatives from 2004 until term limited out in 2012. During his time in the Legislature, he was Majority Whip and then Majority Leader. In 2012, he was elected Property Appraiser of Miami-Dade County.
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the running mate for Sen. John McCain’s (R-AZ) 2008 presidential campaign, weighed in on the dispute between McCain and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, posting a message on her Facebook page calling both men heroes and encouraging them to “resolve the media-driven wedge between them.”
That would be Charlie Crist, the former Florida Governor who used to be a Republican, then bailed on the party to run as an independent after Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) surged to a double-digit lead in the 2010 Senate primary. Crist’s name has become a shorthand insult whenever someone wishes to challenge a candidate’s conservative credentials, and when Rep. David Jolly (R-FL) jumped into the Florida Senate race on Monday, the Club for Growth had thrown the Crist name at him within a few hours.
Some of the harshest criticisms came, unsurprisingly, from the leading Republicans who have served in the military, former Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX), and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC).
Perry’s sharp words come after Trump attacked Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), saying that McCain was not a war hero and was only regarded as such because he had been captured and held as a prisoner of war. Trump, who has been trading insults with McCain for the past few days, continued his critical remarks about the Senator. When moderator Frank Luntz commented that McCain was a war hero, Trump, according to a report by Politico, responded, “He’s not a war hero. He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”
Former Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) had some sharp words for his fellow Republican presidential contender Donald Trump, slamming the New Yorker’s “fundamental misunderstanding of border security” and saying that Trump was not offering conservatism to primary voters, but instead “Trump-ism — a toxic mix of demagoguery and nonsense.”
Breitbart News previously reported that Rubio’s campaign had raised more than $12 million. The final figures, as reported by Politico, are $12,942,732.44 raised (including $3.2 million transferred over from Rubio’s Senate campaign account) and $3,083,666.95 spent. This resulted in a total $9,859,065.49 cash on hand and a burn rate of 18.37 percent.
Fmr. Dem. Gov. Granholm, Who Vetoed Partial Birth Abortion Bans Twice, Caught Lying on Camera About Law
A recent hidden camera investigation caught Jennifer Granholm misrepresenting the true nature of Michigan’s abortion laws, saying that they were more restrictive than they actually are in what appears to be an effort to downplay the horrors of late term abortions.
The Clinton campaign raised $47.5 million, spent $18.7 million, with a total debt of $574,000, and cash on hand of $28.85 million. This is a burn rate of nearly 40 percent, a figure that is generally considered to be high at this point in the campaign cycle.
Former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-FL) called fellow South Floridian Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) for her birthday on Wednesday, and the voicemail message he left her is getting a lot of buzz on social media.
“The video showing a Planned Parenthood employee selling the body parts of aborted children is a disturbing reminder of the organization’s penchant for profiting off the tragedy of a destroyed human life,” said Perry in a statement provided to Breitbart News. “It is because of stories like this that I signed legislation defunding Planned Parenthood in the state of Texas – to protect human life and the health and safety of Texans.”

The 159-page deal drops all financial and economic sanctions against Iran, and imposes a special dispute resolution process before the United States or European Union can impose any new sanctions. Iran agreed to limits on its nuclear enrichment activities for eight years, its stockpile of enriched uranium, and its research and development efforts.
