Chris Christie: ‘Put Me in the Ring Against Vladimir Putin’

Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ), a candidate for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, took aim at President Barack Obama for his handling of foreign policy regarding Russia and the country’s president, Vladimir Putin. According to Christie, Obama has not best represented the personality of the country, which he argued the president favors inaction and retreat. “The fact is, this president has chosen inaction over action,” Christie said. “Every place around the world, he pulls America back, he retreats and he apologizes. And that’s not who America is. That’s not who the American people are. And they’re tired of this president.” Host Sean Hannity asked about Putin, pointing out that he has most of Europe under his thumb as a supplier of energy. Christie suggested the United States should step up and export energy so that Europe isn’t as dependent on Russia. “We could counter that if we had an aggressive energy policy like the one I’ve proposed in this campaign,” Christie said. “We should lift the export ban. We should be exploring more aggressive bring in our country for oil and natural gas and partner with Mexico and Canada to say the north American continent will

Bill Clinton: ‘Ridiculous’ That Free Speech ‘the Same For a Billionaire As It Is For a Minimum-Wage Worker’

Former President Bill Clinton argued “it’s ridiculous that the freedom of speech is the same for a billionaire as it is for a minimum-wage worker” and it’s “not right” to say “the rich and poor are equally free to spend $1 billion on a secret committee on an election” on Tuesday’s broadcast of CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” Clinton said, “You know, Hillary wants to limit these…committees, like you set up four years ago. Yours was a joke, but I mean, the idea that we can have all these anonymous donors spend all this money on elections…we need to do something about that. Even if we have to try to amend the Constitution. I mean, it’s ridiculous that the freedom of speech is the same for a billionaire as it is for a minimum-wage worker. That’s like, the great French writer Victor Hugo once said he lived in a country where the rich and poor were equally free to sleep under the bridge at night, and that’s like saying the rich and poor are equally free to spend $1 billion on a secret committee on an election. That’s not right.” (h/t Andrew Johnson) Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter

Farrakhan: Trump, ISIS Are Signs God is Sending Plagues Down on America

While promoting the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March this October 10 in Washington, D.C. in a interview with “The Rock Newman Show,” Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam said that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump wanting to make America great again and the success of ISIS are both signs God is judging the Untied States and, “The battle is on and the plagues are coming down on America.” Farrakhan said, “God is present today. They need to be afraid. I’m talking to the CIA, the FBI, the IRS, the U.S. government. You need to be afraid today because the God of justice is present now. That’s why he said vengeance is mine. The battle is not yours, the battle is the Lord’s and God has come.  The battle is on and the plagues are coming down on America. I’m not afraid. But you need to be, and especially when you see what’s coming up, because as a man soweth the same shall he also reap. And when you have done the evil that you have done to us and done it to others, did you never think that there would come a day when you would have

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump stated that refugees from the Middle East and north Africa “could be the all-time great Trojan Horse” but admitted that when he was asked about admitting 3,000 of them to the US, he said he would in an interview broadcast on Tuesday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel. Trump argued that the Iraq War was the “dumbest war,” but that Vietnam was up there with Iraq in historical dumb wars fought by the US. He also argued that Russia’s Vladimir Putin would get “quagmired” in his interventions in the Middle East. When asked if he stood by his statement that he would impeach then-President George W. Bush over the Iraq War, Trump responded, “I think he was a disaster, and I think it was one of the worst decisions ever made. He has totally destabilized the Middle East. Had Saddam Hussein still be in charge, you wouldn’t have the problems that you have right now.” After Trump then turned to the refugee crisis, anchor Bret Baier stated, “you said, the US should take some refugees in.” Trump responded, “I did.” Baier continued, “but then you said you would send them back.” Trump explained, “They said would
