tedcruz
Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,”  Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) warned if his opponent Donald Trump wins the presidency, the Second Amendment could be “written out of the Constitution.” Cruz said, “We ought to make the 2016 election a referendum on the Supreme Court. I cannot wait to stand on that debate stage with Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders and talk about what the Supreme Court will look like depending on who wins. If Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders wins, or for that matter if Donald Trump wins whose record is indistinguishable from them on a great many issues, then we will see the Second Amendment written out of the Constitution. Another thing we’ll see, and this is very relevant, for conservatives in South Carolina, if Donald Trump is the nominee, or if Hillary Clinton is the president, we will see unlimited abortion on demand throughout this country. Partial birth abortion, taxpayer funding, no parental notification. And we’ll also see our religious liberty torn down, basic rights,” Cruz added, “I would note, look, how do we know Donald Trump’s record on this is going to be bad? He has supported liberals for four decades, Jimmy Carter, John Kerry,

Partial transcript as follows: BASH: Let’s talk about the debate last night, because there were a lot of extraordinary moments. But one specifically was when you turned to Senator Cruz and questioned his ability to speak Spanish. Let’s listen. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) RUBIO: I don’t know how he knows what I said on Univision because he doesn’t speak Spanish. And, second of all, the other point that I would make… SEN. TED CRUZ (R-TX), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: (SPEAKING SPANISH) (END VIDEO CLIP) BASH: Senator, were you calling into question whether or not Senator Cruz is a real Latino? RUBIO: No, I was calling into question whether he even knows what I’m saying. When he — he points to this interview on Univision in which he claims I said something different than what I say in English. He has no idea. He’s just going off what other people are telling him. And it’s false. It’s just not true. And the bottom line

Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” when asked if President George W. Bush lied about Iraq having weapons of mass destruction which was the justification for the war, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said “I think that people knew that there were no weapons of mass destruction. I think they wanted to go in there.” Partial transcript as follows: TODD: I want to go to the debate last night. Your 2008 comments about George W. Bush were brought up and this idea that you were surprised at the time that then Speaker Pelosi had ruled out impeachment. did you believe that — and I just want to clarify this, did you believe that there was enough there to bring up impeachment proceedings against George W. Bush in 2008 over Iraq? TRUMP: No. I was in the private sector, so I didn’t think about it too much. But certainly the war in Iraq was a disaster. No, not to be impeached, but the war in Iraq it was a mistake. He just made a mistake. We went into Iraq, we lost thousands of lives. TODD: But you don’t believe it’s an impeachable offense now? You were implying it might be in

MSNBC Guest: There’s ‘Intentionality’ to the Fact Black People Are in Poverty

phillips
PowerPAC+ chairman Steve Phillips discussed economic inequality in this country Saturday on MSNBC, saying “black people are not poor by accident,” but rather, there is an “intentionality” to it. “Black people are not poor by accident or by some kind of quirk of history. We were placed in slavery, developed the wealth of this country, denied access to the GI bill benefits, so there’s an intentionality to the current black situation. We have to be equally intentional to address it” Phillips stated. Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent

Exclusive — Donald Trump, Ted Cruz Campaigns Bash RNC for Stacking Audience with Pro-Amnesty Donor Class

GREENVILLE, South Carolina — Corey Lewandowski, the campaign manager for 2016 GOP frontrunner billionaire Donald Trump, bashed the Republican National Committee (RNC) for stacking the debate audience here with pro-amnesty consultant class party donor figures. Lewandowski told Breitbart News in the spin room after the debate: I think the RNC does a terrible job in allocating the tickets, to be honest with you, There’s an opportunity—there’s 2,000 seats out there, there’s six candidates on stage, they should just divide them evenly so everyone has them, but instead they just give them to the donor class, they give them to the lobbyists and to all the special interests. It’s not fair, it’s not equitable. So I think what they should do moving forward is take the total number of seats available, allocate them across the board and let the candidates bring their people in, because that’s who should be here, not the donors. Repeatedly throughout the debate, the audience cheered as former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and his protegé Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) consistently and repeatedly made the case to grant amnesty to illegal aliens, while the audience oddly booed both Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) as they made eloquent
