Donald Trump has enjoyed the top spot nationally for the past three months. Today that changes in a new CBS/NYTimes poll.

Out of 3 million Syrian refugees we now have a case of 1 being a terrorist. Out of 100 million gun owners in America, this year alone 325 have committed mass shootings. When you do the math, an America gun owner is almost 10 times more likely to commit a mass shooting than a refugee is of being a terrorist. Are we really concerned about safety?

Donald Trump waded into the Starbucks non-controversy over their holiday cups yesterday, saying "maybe we should boycott". All that total silliness aside, he said something else that was really troubling.  "If I become president, we're all going to be saying 'Merry Christmas' again. That I can tell you. That I can tell you!" Trump told the crowd. Last I checked Christmas was a Christian holiday and our government is forbidden from establishment of religion under the First Amendment of our Constitution. So basically Trump has just said that he won't defend the Constitution of the United States, violating an oath of office before even having a chance to take it. Hopefully he will get pressed on that tonight during the debate, but being Fox Business, I highly doubt it. 


Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama told a radio host this week he would impeach Hillary Clinton on day 1, a claim she has called "pathetic." But here's the thing. The Constitution states that impeachment can only incur if "high crimes or misdemeanors" are committed. So Mo Brooks is saying that the Democratic front runner has committed some sort of crime. Under law, when you know a crime is being/has been committed you are required to report it. Has Mo Brooks reported this alleged crime? If not, then perhaps he should be investigated by law enforcement for a failure to report. 

Well I guess he isn't such a "money maker". News just broke that he is doing drastic salary cuts for his campaign across the board. I think two words best describe this, "last throes". 

Every single time a Republican brings up a diplomatic/embassy attack from previous years, it's always one from the 90's, while Bill Clinton was President. It's as though no embassy or diplomatic station has ever been attacked during a Republican Presidency. Of course that chart above paints a different story...
