Fiorina: ‘Delusional’ for Obama to Say Climate Change Is Biggest National Security Threat

This weekend on “Fox News Sunday,” Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina discussed the Obama administration’s claim that climate change is an immediate threat to our national security and declared it “delusional.” Fiorina said, “Well, that’s delusional. It is delusional for President Obama and Hillary Clinton and anyone else to say that climate change is our near-term most severe security threat. It is ISIS, period. Followed closely by Iran and perhaps Russia. President Obama continues to think that somehow our behavior causes terrorism, so he says the Climate Change Summit is a powerful rebuke. No, it’s not. The terrorists don’t care that we’re gathering in Paris other than it provides a target. Just as he said Republicans are giving terrorist a recruiting tool because we don’t think refugees should be allowed in the country if we don’t properly vet them. President Obama is delusional about the threat, which is apparently he won’t do anything about it.” She added, “If you read the fine print of the science, what the scientists tell us, all those scientist who tell us climate change is real and man made, they say a single nation acting alone will make no difference at all. It would take

McCain: Trump’s Rhetoric Turning Muslims Against the U.S.

Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s rhetoric was turning Muslims “against the United States of America.” McCain said, “As all of our candidates bloviate about the refugees, Bashar Assad is a major cause of the refugees which are now flooding Europe and causing such consternation in the United States.” When asked specifically about Donald Trumps rhetoric McCain said, “I think it has an interesting affect of turning Muslims all over the world against the United States of America which is 99 and 44/100 percent of  people who practice honorable religion. By the way, the fact is that we can succeed here and ISIS is not that strong but the longer they say in power the more this poison spreads and metastasizes from as far away from Afghanistan, Africa, other parts of the world.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

Jeb: ‘Scary’ Trump Is ‘Misinformed,’ ‘Not a Serious Leader’

Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Republican presidential candidate and former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-FL) said his rival Donald Trump is “misinformed” at best and “scary” at times on foreign policy. Bush said, “I think he’s uninformed. He knows what he is saying He is smart. He’s playing you guys like a fiddle, the press, by saying outrageous things. and garnering attention that’s his strategy to dominate the news. He simple fact is that he has been wrong on Syria and on the refugees, pretty consistently. And no one is holding him to account. He frst said we had no interest in being involved in Syria, then let the Russians take out ISIS, let ISIS take out Assad. Back and forth it goes. The net effect, these really serious times he’s not a serious leader.” He continued, “Anybody is better than Hillary Clinton, let me be clear about that. I have great doubts about Donald Trump’s ability to be commander in chief. I really do. I wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt to see how the campaign unfolded. But you listen to him talk, it’s kind of scary to be honest with you because he’s not a serious candidate.

Planned Parenthood Official: ‘Hateful Language’ Makes People Think ‘It’s OK to Target’ Us

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains President and CEO Vicki Cowart discussed Friday’s shooting that took the lives of three people in Colorado and said the “hateful language” surrounding Planned Parenthood makes some think “it’s OK to target Planned Parenthood.” Cowart said, “We have experienced so much hateful language, hateful speech, such a negative environment has been created around the work that Planned Parenthood does, around the idea of safe and legal abortion and we have seen that across the country from all sort of speakers in the last few months. I can’t believe that this isn’t contributing to some folks mentally unwell or not, thinking it’s okay to target Planned Parenthood or to target abortion providers.” When asked “Are you talking about members of congress, politicians?,” she answered, “I think politicians have been in that conversation, and I mean, you know that the air waves are full of anti-abortion language of anti-planned parenthood accusations. Much of which is false in nature and we at Planned Parenthood are first and foremost a health care provider, we provide life-saving services to all kinds of folks, men and women across our communities. The tirades against Planned Parenthood in the last few months have really
