Christie: Trump ‘Painfully Naive’ on Russian Airstrikes in Syria

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Republican presidential candidate Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) said Republican front-runner Donald Trump is “painfully naive” for agreeing with President Barack Obama that it is not a problem that Russian President Vladimir Putin is conducting airstrikes in Syria. Host George Stephanopoulos asked, “Let’s talk about Syria, Vladimir Putin going in aggressively this week, you heard Donald Trump say, maybe it’s okay. President Obama also this week, he believes Putin is making a mistake and it could fall into a quagmire. Are they right about that And if you were president what would you do?” Christie replied, “Well Donald should be concerned he is agreeing with Barack Obama because just when you think it can’t get worse it does. And just when you think this foreign policy can’t cost more to the American people it does. We don’t need to be friends with Vladimir Putin. And we don’t need to be worried whether he’s in quagmire. After 40 years, we allowed Russia to be back in the Middle East. America has to re-established its presence in the area. We should be the ones leading the fight on ISIS. By the way, we know Putin is not fighting

Hillary: 1990s Clinton Crime Bill Motivated By ‘Crack Babies’ Filling Our Hospitals

Sunday on MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation with Al Sharpton” Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said her husband former President Bill Clinton’s Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, which is responsible for today’s mass incarceration controversy was put in place “because there was so much crime, gangs were warring in the streets, crack houses were endemic, crack babies were filling, you know, the wards of our hospitals.” Clinton said, “You remember what we were facing in the ’80s and the early ’90s, and people of color, poor communities, lots of towns and cities, including this great city of New York, were under tremendous pressure because there was so much crime, gangs were warring in the streets, crack houses were endemic, crack babies were filling, you know, the wards of our hospitals, and so yes, we did have to take action. But let’s remember some of the things that were done that we no longer do. We had a ban on assault weapons. I want us to get back to sensible, smart gun prevention of violence. I want us to have not just universal background checks but I want us to really have the country rise up against the special interests

Feminists Call The Cops When I Show Up. Here’s Why

I’m a slut, and I have been shamed. Yesterday I rocked up to the Amber Rose Slut Walk in downtown LA, alongside Rebel Media broadcaster and libertarian political candidate Lauren Southern. Event organisers called the police when they realised we didn’t buy into their barmy conspiracy theories about patriarchy and rape culture, and we were escorted from the event by the LAPD. Southern and I represent something horrifying to the loony feminist Left: we’re not straight white males, yet we’re both relentlessly critical of hysterical, fact-free narratives about an American rape epidemic (which is just wrong), the idea that society supports rapists (also wrong, we put them in jail) and the notion that somehow western culture subtly encourages others to become rapists, sexist, and misogynists (hilariously wrong). Our opponents would like us to be angry, old, doddering, white male conservatives. Instead, they get a sassy gay shitposter and a fearless hot blonde female politician, both of whom who refuse to be drawn into the senseless victim culture that the Left has sought to construct around both our identities. We aren’t alone: young, smart, tech-savvy millennials are rapidly turning against the zany excesses of the modern progressive Left and its fear of free speech and free expression. Increasingly, it’s simply uncool

Biden: ‘There’s Homophobes Still Left — Most of Them Are Running for President’

Vice President Joe Biden speaks at a White House Champions of Change Law Enforcement and Youth meeting, Monday, Sept. 21, 2015, in the South Court Auditorium of the Eisenhower Executive Office Building (EEOB), on the White House complex in Washington.
Saturday in an address to the Human Rights Campaign National Dinner, Vice President Joe Biden took a jab at the Republican Party’s presidential field for the stance on LGBT issues, describing them as “homophobes.” “We become more of what America was meant to be,” Biden said. “All men created equal, all have a right to liberty, pursuit of happiness. We say it so often that it loses its meaning. The very fact that we finally recognize that love is not a political matter, it’s a basic human right — the fact that we’ve recognized that is because of you.” “There’s homophobes still left,” he added. “Most of them are running for president, I think.” (h/t The Hill) Follow Jeff Poor on Twitter @jeff_poor

Molly Ball: Rand Paul’s Campaign ‘Now Officially on Death Watch’

Sunday on CNN’s “Inside Politics,” The Atlantic’s Molly Ball said Republican presidential candidate Sen. Rand Paul’s (R-KY) campaign is “now officially on death watch.” Ball said, “The Rand Paul campaign, which once showed so much promise is now officially on death watch. It’s never a good look for your campaign when every interview with The Des Moines Register starts with ‘are you dropping out?’ He won’t be able to keep the pace of spending. He’s not getting very big crowds. He’s polling so low it’s a question whether he’ll make the main stage for the next Republican debate at the end of the month. a lot of nervous, well, I would say a lot of nervous donors, but there’s not lot of donors left. The big names and libertarian money he thought were going to come through for him didn’t come through. So, you know, he has said multiple times he’s still in this. He’s going to be in it when people vote but it’s looking very dicey for him.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN
