Pro-life voters in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina don’t need a translator to understand what Ted Cruz was talking about when he attacked Donald Trump and his “New York values.” Those values came through loud and clear in Trump’s praise of his pro-partial-birth abortion sister as the model for a “phenomenal” Supreme Court Justice.

Rubio Isn’t Backing Down On Support For Amnesty

Just in case you thought Marco Rubio’s conflicting statements about his support for “comprehensive immigration reform,” signaled a change in his position on amnesty for illegal aliens, Rubio’s performance on NBC’s “Meet the Press" this past Sunday settled that question once and for all.
