But contrary to reports, the public´s mad and red flags of corruption are up. In a page-one headline, the Los Angeles Times hailed the appointment of illegal immigrants to two Huntington Park, Calif., civic commissions as a milestone that "charts a bold path for immigrants." It was booster journalism at its worst, gushing about illegals gaining participatory "rights" in U.S. public life that had supposedly been unjustly denied them. It also stood in stark contrast with the multiple local press reports, Obama Favors Anti'America Turkey Over Our Loyal Kurd Allies Tue, 04 55 2015 11:55:29 GMT 8c5e9f24b0874c99edec848a008f359b35930cb3 Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial Posted By: Desert Fox- Tue, 04 55 2015 11:55:29 GMT War On Terror: Besides Israel, no nation has helped the U.S. fight Islamist terror more than the world´s largest people without a country, the Kurds. America should stop taking them for granted. Despite its NATO membership, and its misleading image as supposedly the most Western of Muslim nations, Turkey is quite anti'American, more so than many Mideast Islamic states. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has been little help against the Islamic State. As mayor of Istanbul in 1997, celebrating the city´s Ottoman conquest, he is on record as saying: "The image of the Jews is no different from that of the Nazis."

That´s easy: The GOP base is fed up with its mealy'mouthed, impotent leaders. Republican voters see their party´s recently crowned congressional kingpins, as well as the career pols running for the White House, as all talk and no action, while Trump comes across as someone who´d actually get things done. The real estate magnate is tapping into frustration mainly over GOP Majority Leader Mitch McConnell´s and House Speaker John Boehner´s failure to deliver on promises made during the 2014 campaign.

Ted Cruz (R-TX) 96% barely edged businessman Donald Trump in July’s Breitbart Primary as Trump surged into second place, followed by Dr. Ben Carson, who grabbed the third spot. Cruz, who won June’s inaugural Breitbart Primary, was the first choice of 28.3% of the 70,566 participants last month. Trump was second with 27% of the vote.

But for the low'ranking hopefuls who take part, the kids´ debate might turn out to be as big an opportunity to move ahead as the first'tier faceoff scheduled for later on Thursday. For five reasons: 1) Donald Trump won´t be involved. The top ten debate is in grave danger of becoming the Trump show. Even top GOP candidates´ performances will be evaluated relative to Trump, making it harder for them to make a good impression on their own. 2) The second'tier debate will be Fifth Planned Parenthood Video Released '' and It Just Gets Worse Tue, 04 09 2015 11:09:44 GMT eef3bfd89590b67ad62928a07a44648a651c38c5, by Rush Limbaugh Posted By: Desert Fox- Tue, 04 09 2015 11:09:44 GMT RUSH: The latest from Planned Parenthood, these videos from the group '' Center for Medical Progress '' that´s made these videos.

Conquest surely deserves to be counted among the top five most important historians of Communism and the Soviet Union in our time. His book The Great Terror, about the Soviet purges and deliberate famine policy of the 1930s, made it impossible for anyone to deny the essential character of Stalin’s regime. But leftists tried anyway. As the Wall Street Journal explains in its new story: Mr. Conquest’s master work, “The Great Terror,” was the first detailed account of the Stalinist purges from 1937
