Santorum: Socialists ‘teaming with radical Islamists’ to spread venom

Published

on

Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum borrowed a line from Glenn Beck Friday and accused socialists and “radical Islamists” of working together to “spread their venom throughout the world.”

“There are people out there that hate us, not because of what we do, they hate us because who we are,” Santorum told a receptive audience at the Conservative Political Action Conference. “They hate us because we stand for things that they find antithetical to their world point of view. And it’s not just the radical Islamists, it’s the Bolivarian socialists in Central and South America.”

“It’s those socialists who are now teaming with the radical Islamists and creating training camps in Central and South America, not because they [don’t] like us, not because what we have done to their countries. It’s because they want us off the beat. It’s because they want to dominate the world. They want to spread their venom throughout the world and have it land up on our shores.”

He added: “If we do not have a lean-forward Reaganesque policy of fighting these folks where they are instead of waiting for them to come to our shores, ladies and gentlemen, we will be the generation that not only lost this country because of our debt, because of freedom being taken away by big government control, but we will be the country that will have allowed the world to sink into despair, and we will be and island and we will not be an island that will long survive.”

Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) gave a detailed account of the emotional meltdown that President Donald Trump had with congressional Democrats at the White House on Wednesday.

Appearing on CNN Thursday morning, Menendez broke down how Trump started raging at Democrats from the second he entered the room.

"The meeting started off with the president walking in and slamming down his files on the table," Menendez said. "It was belligerent from the get-go... you have the president of the United States, who is supposed to bring our country together, particularly in times of challenges, [calling] the Speaker a third-rate politician."

Grieving British parents react on CNN to seeing Trump’s defense of woman who killed their son

Published

On CNN Thursday, grieving British parents Tim Dunn and Charlotte Charles were shown footage of how President Donald Trump reacted to the motor vehicle death of their teenage son Harry at the hands of American diplomatic wife Anne Sacoolas.

Trump has refused to waive diplomatic immunity for Sacoolas to face punishment for her actions — and tried to defuse the situation by arranging a surprise meeting between Sacoolas and the parents which fortunately never took place.

"Radd, as you watched all of that play out, describe the mood in the room and what you left feeling after that — after that surprise," said anchor Alisyn Camerota.

MSNBC conservative goes down in flames trying to separate Trump’s incompetence from his corruption

Published

on

MSNBC conservative Noah Rothman met furious pushback when he dismissed poll numbers as insignificant showing a growing majority of Americans support the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

The "Morning Joe" contributor argued that those numbers reflected the president's approval rating and would not exert any pressure on congressional Republicans, but instead place greater pressure on Democrats to make their case for impeachment.

"It's incumbent on Democrats to make this case," Rothman said. "Right now they are presenting a united front because it's still primary season. Once we get into the general (election campaign) there will be more pressure on them to explain their position, but it's incumbent on Democrats to make the case."
