Next President of the United Fates of America
Rand Paul Takes A Stand

Rand Paul: Clintons ‘proud’ to incarcerate a generation of black men

Quote:Bill Clinton presided over the incarceration of an entire generation of young black men," 
Paul, a GOP presidential candidate, said Thursday on "The Wilkow Majority" on SiriusXM. 

Young black men, Paul said, are being put in jail "at a rate never before seen in history" because of the war on drugs.

"Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, they were all proud to do this, 
but now that I've been speaking out and saying that mass incarceration is the new Jim Crow, 
now all the sudden the Clintons are saying now we’re going to be back on the other side of this issue now," he said.

Paul has long emphasized criminal justice issues, 
for example co-sponsoring legislation that would reform mandatory sentencing laws.

  He pointed to poll numbers
 that showed him doing well against - or surpassing - Hillary Clinton Whip in some swing states. 
A recent Quinnipiac poll, for example, showed Paul running even with Clinton in Ohio Whip  
and ahead of her in Pennsylvania

"Someone from the DNC is listening to our radio interview now and they’re looking for ways to attack me 

because they see me as a threat to Hillary Clinton," Paul said. 
"I’m going to the south side of Chicago, 
I’m going to the inner city Philadelphia, 
I’m going to Baltimore, 
I’m going to Ferguson and I’m saying what have the Democrats done for you? 

What have they done to alleviate poverty? What have they done on crime? 
What have they done for the young men in your community and you know what it’s starting to gain traction."

More Bullwinkle's hat polls show Donald Dump closimng in on El Stupidissimo Jeb Bush


As the last days of June wane, polls are showing Donald Trump gaining on leader Jeb Bush 
in the hunt for the 2016 Republican nomination in New Hampshire.

Jeb once had a strong lead in New Hampshire, 
but now polls are showing that his lead has dwindled to a narrow margin as the GOP filed continues to expand.

Despite that he only jumped into the race a week ago, 
Donald Trump is now at 11 percent in the latest poll of New Hampshire Republicans. 
Jeb still leads but only at 16 percent. 

Next closest to The Donald is Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) <----
 at 9 percent.

He is followed by Scott Walker at 8 percent, Carly Fiorina and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)
 tied at 6 percent, and Ben Carson and Chris Christie tied at 5 percent.

Fully 75 percent say they are not settled on a candidate, and 21 percent wouldn’t even make a choice for the poll.

Trump takes top spots in several categories in the New Hampshire poll. 
Respondents said they trusted him more on economic issues–
29 percent for Trump and only 13 percent for Bush Whip
Trump also won high marks as the candidate who would best handle international trade–
27 percent for Trump and 14 percent for Bush Whip

Trump also edged Bush on who would be the best leader–17 percent to Bush’s 15 percent.

Meanwhile Rubio sinking in the polls after taking "a breather" and fund raising.
Rubio let his momentum slip ---right at the time when Bush announced his candidacy -- Hmm2
bad move
In N.H., Marco Rubio Is Pressed on Trade and Immigration

Quote:Senator Marco Rubio defended his conservative credentials on two issues that are roiling the right – immigration and trade – 
as he returned to the campaign trail on Thursday.

The Florida Republican, 
who had taken a breather from campaigning Whip 
as he crisscrossed the country on a fund-raising tour,
had not taken questions from the public since casting a decisive vote on Tuesday 
that allowed President Obama’s trade bill to advance in the Senate.

Some conservatives, 
who objected to giving Mr. Obama enhanced negotiating powers to complete a major Pacific trade accord 
and derided the legislation as “Obamatrade,” 
blamed Mr. Rubio for providing a crucial 60th vote Whip
that assured the legislation could move forward. Others accused Mr. Rubio of not even reading the bill.

In a town-hall-style meeting here on Thursday, Mr. Rubio was asked to explain himself.

“There’s been some controversy on whether or not you actually read the bill,” 
one woman pressed him. 
“Why did you vote for it?”

“First of all,” he said, “I did read the bill. 
Second of all, it’s not Obamatrade. 
It’s called free trade.” 
To further underscore his point, he invoked a conservative hero:
 “We voted on fast-track authority, which Ronald Reagan was for.”

Whether Mr. Rubio was convincing or not was unclear. 
The crowd of about 200, which applauded politely on and off during the hour-long event, 
was not particularly enthusiastic.

He was also asked to clarify his position on overhauling immigration, 
an issue that still dogs him with many on the right, 
two years after he dropped his support for a comprehensive Senate bill 
that would have provided undocumented immigrants with the opportunity to become citizens.

Mr. Rubio was unequivocal. 
He said he no longer supported one sweeping, omnibus bill, adding, 
“Anyone who insists on doing it all at once is basically out of touch with reality.”

Instead, Congress must first pass a law that provides for greater border security, 
then prove that illegal immigration is under control. 
Otherwise, he said, “the votes aren’t there — the public won’t support it.”

Many in the crowd did not seem too familiar with Mr. Rubio, 44, 
who announced his campaign for president in April and quickly shot to the top of many polls. 
Several of the questioners seemed interested in testing his conservatism.

Mr. Rubio spoke less than two hours after the Supreme Court upheld a key provision of the Affordable Care Act that allows for the federal health care exchange to provide coverage in states that have not set up their own exchanges. The decision, written by Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., an appointee of President George W. Bush, angered many conservatives.

One man in the crowd asked, 
“What are you going to do differently from the past two Republican presidents,
who gave us Souter and Roberts?” 
(David Souter, a former justice appointed by the first President Bush, often voted with the court’s liberal wing.)

Mr. Rubio responded that he would appoint 

“people that will actually interpret and apply the Constitution, not expand and redefine it.” 
He added that his understanding of the Constitution was fixed.
 “The Constitution is not a living and breathing document,” he said, 
noting that the next president could appoint as many as three Supreme Court judges

Rubio hitting the teflon slide Whip 

Bush hopes to Astroglide the public perception, but he is just a used condom.

Rand Paul is getting into full stride and not letting up.

Snidely Scott Walker Whiplash is still playing the catch me if you can game Anon

Hillary still laughing and knows that she still sets the polls standard.
