Top-Polling GOP Candidates Participate In First Republican Presidential Debate

Jeb! Has a Likability Problem

While certain segments of the Republican political establishment may see Jeb Bush as an obvious candidate for President, the majority of the voting public seems to have moved on. Bush’s current struggles in the polls aren’t simply a factor of the Trump phenomenon, but the inevitable result of the voters simply not liking Bush that much.

Protect America By Preserving Patent System

The ability to secure and protect a patent allows innovators the tools they need to deliver groundbreaking innovations that change the way we live and strengthen our standing in the world. It is vital that we continue to protect a patent system that has served our nation extraordinarily well since our founding. In fact, we must never forget that the only “right” actually conferred in the body of the U.S. Constitution is the “exclusive Right … of Authors and Inventors … to their respective Writings and Discoveries.”

Black Panther and Ferguson Protester Get Prison in Bomb Plot Conspiracy

A New Black Panther Party member and another Ferguson protester both received 84 months in prison for “planning and conspiring to ignite explosive devices during the Ferguson protests and procuring firearms for convicted felons,” according to the FBI. The Ferguson protests were largely pushed by protesters and organizers identifying as #BlackLivesMatter, according to The Guardian. The riots and protests occurred in response to the false claims that an innocent black man had his hands up and was shot by a white police officer. Black Lives Matter has come to represent the wider #BlackLivesMatter movement, no longer solely representing the specific Black Lives Matter group that was founded in California.

Tancredo: European Colonization, Not Refugee Resettlement

Why are the more than one million Muslim refugees so anxious to get to northern Europe and not, say, Saudi Arabia or Egypt? Why are we obligated to help them get to Amsterdam, Oslo and London? And why in the world is the United States government planning to take 66,000 Syrian refugees? The United States should follow Hungary and just say no. We do not need another 66,000 Muslim migrants added to the over one million Muslims residing here now.

Ortiz: The Cadillac Tax on Buick Health Care Plans

A good place to start reforming health care is by eliminating the so-called Cadillac tax, one of about 20 new taxes associated with the ACA. Starting in 2018, this tax imposes a 40 percent surcharge on health plans that cost more than $10,200 for an individual or $27,500 for a family. Repealing this tax enjoys bipartisan support — with unions, which traditionally have very generous health care plans, being among the tax’s fiercest opponents.

White House On Kim Davis: No Public Official Above The Rule Of Law

The White House says no public official is above the rule of law, after Kentucky County Court Clerk Kim Davis was ordered to jail for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same sex couples. It didn’t mention Obama’s history of questionable legal decisions, which critics argue are a direct affront to the Constitution. Earlier this year, Sen. Ted Cruz issued a list of 76 “lawless” actions by the administration that he argued was an abuse of executive power.
