joshh
Thursday at the White House press briefing while responding to a question about Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk who was found in contempt of court and jailed for refusing to issue any marriage licenses because of her opposition to same-sex marriages, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said that “there is no public official that is above the rule of law.” Earnest said, “On principle, the success of our democracy depends on the rule of law. And there is no public official that is above the rule of law. Certainly not the President of the United States, but neither is the Rowan County clerk. That’s a principle that is enshrined in our Constitution and in our democracy and it’s one that obviously the courts are seeking to uphold.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

Fiorina: Non-Criminal Illegals ‘Can Earn a Pathway to Legal Status’ After Border Is Secured

Screenshot
Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina stated that after the border is secured, non-criminal illegal immigrants “can earn a pathway to legal status under certain circumstances” on Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “New Day.” Fiorina discussed the GOP’s loyalty pledge and said that she plans to sign it and fellow candidate Donald Trump should sign the pledge as well because if one runs in a GOP primary, they’re declaring that they’re a Republican, and “it’s not simply a run of convenience. This is about, hopefully, some degree of principle here.” When asked about the sparring between Trump and fellow candidate former Florida Governor Jeb Bush over Jeb speaking Spanish on the trail, Fiorina stated that frontrunners are going to fight with each other, and that she admires the fact that Jeb, along with many people are multilingual, and “I also think that English is the official language of the United States.” Fiorina

Thank you for all being here. This is some turnout, my great honor. The chairman just left as you probably know, and he’s been extremely fair. The RNC has been absolutely terrific over the last two-month period.

In a press conference revealing that he will sign a pledge that he not run against the Republican Party at Trump Tower in New York City on Thursday, the GOP front-runner responded to a question about his feelings on Kanye West, who Sunday revealed he would seek the presidency in 2020. “You know what, I’ll never say bad about him,” Trump said. “You know why? Because he loves Trump. He loves Trump. He goes around saying Trump is my all-time hero. So Kanye West, I love him. He says it to everybody. Kanye West, I love him. Maybe in a few years I’ll have to run against him. I don’t know. I’ll take that back. He’s been so nice to me. You people have sort of seen – because I’ve been a counter puncher. I only hit people when they hit me. And Kanye West is so great. I would

Hillary for America Press Secretary Brian Fallon declared, “I don’t know what wiped means” when asked whether Clinton turned over the “wiped server” to the DOJ on Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Wolf.” Fallon was asked, “You said that she’s done everything to be transparent, but I personally asked her about deleting her emails, how she came to that decision, how it was executed. That was two months ago. She has — she did not answer that question when I asked, and she hasn’t answered it since. How is that transparent? Fallon responded, “I disagree with that, Brianna we’ve been pretty clear, and actually all that information is posted on our website. She’s answered it when it’s been asked on the trail. After she turned over all 55,000 pages of her emails that could have even been remotely deemed work-related, they made the decision to not retain any of her emails. That

Limbaugh: Trump, Tea Party Standing Up to Stop Dilution of What It Means to Be an American

Limbaugh58
On his Thursday radio show, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh hit back at those criticizing GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump for challenging his opponent, former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-FL), for not speaking English to a press gaggle earlier this week. Limbaugh argued that such criticism aimed at Trump signifies an effort to dilute what it means to be an American. “[T]here is no assimilation,” Limbaugh said. “There is no melding, or melting pot if you will. There is a purposeful balkanization going on brought to you by the modern-day Democrat Party and specifically Barack Hussein O. You have Mexican-Americans. You have Hispanic-Americans. We have gay Americans. We have LGBT Americans. We have Muslim-Americans. ‘Americans’ is always second. The ethnicity is always number one and the modern-day Democratic Party wants it that way because they think America needs to be punished because we’ve been too big for our britches. We’ve been too
