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

Graham on Gay Marriage: GOP Can’t Pick, Choose Which Laws to Follow Like Obama

grm
Thursday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” while discussing Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk who is refusing to issue any marriage licenses because of her opposition to same-sex marriages, Republican presidential hopeful Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said, “We can’t on the Republican side, do what Obama has been doing, pick and choose the laws we like.” Graham said, “Marbury v. Madison said it’s the job of the Supreme Court, the judiciary, to interpret the Constitution. The Supreme Court has ruled 5-1 that same-sex marriage bans imposed by states violate the 14th Amendment of the Constitution. It is the law of the land until the Supreme Court changes their decision or there’s a Constitutional Amendment overriding that decision. This clerk, I understand her concerns. I believe in traditional marriage, but she’s a public official. We can’t on the Republican side, do what Obama has been doing, pick and choose the laws we

Perry: Mexico Will ‘Salute’ That Our Border Is Secure, We Can Help Them on Their Southern Border

Republican presidential candidate and former Texas Governor Rick Perry said that Mexico is “not going to have a choice” other than to “salute” that the southern border is secure and “we can also be of assistance to them on the southern border with Mexico” on Wednesday’s “Lou Dobbs Tonight” on the Fox Business Network. Perry discussed border security, after re-iterating that border security is the most important issue that decides all the other issues pertaining to immigration, giving his plan to secure the border using personnel, strategic fencing, and aviation assets, added, “I think that’s one of the things that’s been missing all along, is the will at the White House, the will from Washington, to clearly send a message. Now, keep in mind, Mexico’s the number one trading partner for a state like Texas, they are a major importance from a trade standpoint. But the other side of it

Adam Schefter: Brady Ruling an ‘Embarrassment for the NFL’

schefter
ESPN NFL reporter Adam Schefter reacted on Thursday’s “SportsCenter” to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s four-game “Deflate-gate” suspension being uplifted by federal judge Richard Berman, calling it an “embarrassment for the NFL.” Schefter noted that the NFL set themselves up for embarrassment because they chose the court to hear the case, but refused to reach a settlement with Brady, which allowed them to fully lose their case that Brady purposefully deflated footballs for game usage. “Both sides, unwilling to compromise, the NFL refused to give ground; the [NFL Players Association] and Tom Brady refused to give ground. Both thought that they had a valid argument and ultimately, in the end, Tom Brady gets the victory over the NFL. That’s an embarrassment for the NFL. The NFL got to pick the courthouse. They chose New York.” Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent

The Bitcoin network took a hit yesterday as CoinWallet ran its “stress pre-test” for about thirty minutes resulting in a “2-day delay and a 50 MB backlog” according to CoinWallet CCO James Wilson. Reports are still coming in but it seems like most bitcoin exchanges and wallet companies were able to take the test in its stride. Wilson also told Bitcoin Magazine today that the company will be running a major stress test on the Bitcoin network on Thursday, September 10 starting at 10 a.m. GMT. The purpose of these stress tests is to see if the Bitcoin network can handle a barrage of very small transactions that will act like a DDOS attack but most observers see this as […]
