Kentucky Senator and Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul stated that he was “sympathetic to the idea that an individual shouldn’t have to sign or give their stamp of approval to they object to. And I think there’s an in-between on this” regarding Rowan County, KY clerk Kim Davis’ (D) refusal to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples on Thursday’s on the Fox News Channel. Rand said, “I’ve never been opposed to contracts between consenting adults. but I am very much sympathetic to the idea that an individual shouldn’t have to sign or give their stamp of approval to they object to. And I think there’s an in-between on this. Why couldn’t we just have a notary of the public put their seal on it, and then the clerk would file it. My understanding is that she will file it as a contract, she just doesn’t want to sign that, because

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

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

A BBC journalist has been forced to delete a tweet after questions were raised by Breitbart London over the improper use of a BBC-linked Twitter account. Former UKIP candidate Peter Bucklitsch tweeted about the deceased Syrian child who washed up on the shores of Turkey, and was rounded on by the political left, and BBC journalist Alex Morrison, on Twitter. Morrison, a BBC web journalist, tweeted a link to Bucklitsch’s now deleted tweet that read: “The little Syrian boy was well clothed and well fed. He died because his parents were greedy for the good life in Europe. Queue jumping costs.” Morrison’s own tweet included the judgement: “Worst human alive tweets…”   Bucklitsch’s words, though clumsy, were also those used by Conservative Party MEP Daniel Hannan just one day before, in the Guardian newspaper. The BBC confirmed to Breitbart London that Morrison’s use of his BBC-linked Twitter account was inappropriate, and that the licence

The RNC has been absolutely terrific over the last two-month period.
