Marco Rubio Desperately Plays the Isolationist Card

Trying to defend his record of supporting such disastrous misadventures as Iraq and Libya, Marco Rubio denounced unnamed foes who he claims seek “to derail the postwar consensus about America’s role in the world.” This anonymous “they,” he added, “will never call themselves isolationists, but that is exactly what they are.” Against Ted Cruz, the likely intended target, Rubio's claim obviously is nonsense.

Trump slams Gowdy for Rubio endorsement

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Trump, in a Sunday-morning appearance on ‘Fox and Friends,’ said "I hope [Gowdy] does a better job than he did, frankly, at the Benghazi hearings, because they were a total disaster," referring to the Oct. 22 hearing in which Gowdy called Hillary Clinton to testify. "[Gowdy] did not win with those hearings. It was not good for Republicans and for the country. I hope he does a lot better for Marco than he did with the Benghazi hearings."

Why are Obama and Ryan Ignoring this Patriot?

Establishment threatens to bail if an “outsider” wins nomination

Ben Shapiro, Breitbart

It wouldn’t matter at all whether Trump were the establishment’s enemy or whether it was Senator Sen. Ted Cruz, currently the second-place finisher in national polls. So long as the frontrunner remains an outsider, the establishment will use all of its power to stop them, including the threat of a third-party run.

Trump spells trouble for Clinton

Ross Kaminsky, American Spectator

He’s done it to Jeb Bush, he’s done it to Ben Carson, he did it early on to Rick Perry and then to Scott Walker — feats that he isn’t shy to remind us about. And now his aim has turned toward Hillary Clinton. Unless she is some sort of GMP (Genetically Modified Politician) who is immune to political Roundup, she should be very worried.

It Is Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, Not Donald Trump, In An ISIS Recruiting Video

streiff, RedState

Hillary Clinton made the astonishing claim that Donald Trump was being used in ISIS recruiting videos. That resulted in a quick bit of “fact checking” by the progressive media which revealed that, no, Donald Trump wasn’t being used in ISIS recruiting videos. As it turns out, there is a prominent American featured in an ISIS recruiting video and that person is Bill Clinton.

Jeb Bush refused to answer a question over whether he’d support Donald Trump against Hillary Clinton for the presidency in an appearance on CNN Thursday night, lending further support to claims he is backing out of a pledge to back the final GOP nominee.

Trump and Cruz Won Tuesday’s GOP Debate, Establishment Candidates Clear Losers

The results left no doubt that conservatives continue to reject the old, established leadership of the GOP, looking to candidates whose words and deeds demonstrate an eagerness to overturn the radical agenda of the Obama administration rather than accommodate it.
