Trump took aim at Bush on Twitter for his brother's decision to invade Iraq in 2003.

Trump: "Jeb, why did your brother attack and destabilize the Middle East by attacking Iraq when there were no weapons of mass destruction? Bad info?"
Trump wrote on the social media network.

Bush, for his part, defended his brother Sunday against Trump's Sept. 11 insults, explaining that the former President simply

Jeb!: "responded to a crisis, and he did it as you would hope a President would do."

Trump: I should have Secret Service protection


NEW YORK — Donald Trump on Tuesday said the Secret Service should be giving him protection — and he suggested partisan politics might be why the agency isn’t providing it.

In a 90-minute interview with The Hill, the Republican presidential front-runner pointed out that he has attracted large crowds just like Barack Obama did eight years ago as a White House candidate and that by this point in the 2008 cycle, the Illinois senator had Secret Service protection.

Trump doesn’t, and he’s not happy about it.
“I want to put them on notice because they should have a liability,” he said. “Personally, I think if Obama were doing as well as me he would’ve had Secret Service [earlier]. I have by far the biggest crowds.”

Obama was given Secret Service protection on May 3, 2007. At the time, law enforcement officials acknowledged it was unusually early in the presidential cycle to grant a presidential candidate protection, but also said it was not based on specific threats.

Pressed on details, Trump asked one of his private security officers to describe the discussions the Secret Service has had with his campaign. The talks were described as preliminary, and the Trump camp says the Secret Service had not provided a definitive answer on when — or if — the billionaire businessman will receive government protection.

“They’re in no rush because I’m a Republican. They don’t give a shit,” Trump said jokingly.

It was an off-the-cuff remark he later clarified.

**No Donny, remember your'e rich as you remind us all the time. You said you even turn down money etc. So why don't you just hire some "people that you know" to protect you.

Wouldn't it be cool....

To have t-shirts that say... "Enuf of the damn e-mails"

Donald Trump says he will be tweeting the whole Dem. debate.


And you know he is going to tweet some crazy stuff. However , his 'people' will be there tweeting stuff for him cause he doesn't know shick.

Black Fox News Staffers Sound Off About 'Difficult' Work Environment

The staffers find it "very difficult" to work at the network, former president of the National Association of Black Journalists Bob Butler tells TheWrap.

Posted: Oct. 11 2015 3:34 PM


" 'I've talked to some folks who work there and it's very difficult, especially when you have all the hit pieces that are done on Obama,' Butler said.

"His comments come as Rupert Murdoch continues to face criticism over a controversial tweet on Wednesday that insinuated President Obama isn't 'a real black president.' Murdoch apologized on Thursday.

"But those disillusioned staffers also told Butler, 'Look, this is a job, I have to do it, and sometimes you have to just hold your nose and do what you have to do to collect a paycheck.' Butler, who served as president of the NABJ from 2013-2015, said those employees are good producers who pride themselves on covering news.

"Regarding Murdoch's comments suggesting the president isn't an authentic black president, a dumbfounded Butler wondered 'what does that even mean?'

"He's not surprised Murdoch isn't a fan of Obama judging by the editorial policies of his properties, but wouldn't call him a racist.

" 'I always stop short of saying someone is being blatantly racist,' Butler continued before saying it's troubling for Murdoch, who isn't black, to be deciding who is 'black enough. '. . ."

Gingrich open to return to Speakership

October 08, 2015, 05:27 pm
By Bradford Richardson

Newt Gingrich said he would consider taking up the Speaker’s gavel again if called upon to by House Republicans.

The former Speaker initially denied any interest in a return to Congress, but when pressed in an interview with radio show host Sean Hannity on Thursday, admitted he would consider it if he had the votes.

“If you were to say to me 218 have called you up and given you their pledge, obviously no citizen could ever turn down that kind of challenge,” Gingrich said, as first reported by the Washington Free Beacon.

He compared the scenario to George Washington coming out of retirement to become America’s first president.
“This is why George Washington came out of retirement — because there are moments you can’t avoid,” Gingrich said.

Despite his willingness to take the House’s top job, Gingrich downplayed his chances, saying he would face many of the same obstacles as House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), who abruptly dropped out of the race for Speaker on Thursday.
