George W. Bush will hold fundraiser for Jeb in NYC.

Asian American advocacy groups are criticizing Republican presidential hopeful Jeb Bush after he singled them out in reviving the controversial term “anchor babies”. After losing ground to Trump in the polls following the first GOP presidential debate, Jeb Bush has gone on the attack, questioning the real estate mogul’s Republican bona fides. “Mr.One of the central challenges of Jeb Bush’s presidential campaign is finding ways to show that he’s his own man without harshly repudiating his brother, President George W. In the wake of jarring videos of the group’s leaders discussing the value of the bodies of aborted babies, the issue has been intense among Republican voters. Trump doesn’t have a proven conservative record,” Bush said at a town hall in Merrimack, N.H., on Aug. 19, 2015. “He was a Democrat longer in the last decade than he was a Republican.” We know Trump has changed his political affiliation several times over the years, but we wanted to figure out just when and how the billionaire liked to party. “The federal government right now does not deport criminals,” he said at a town hall in New Hampshire on Aug. 19. “I don’t believe that we should take people that are here in the shadows and deport them all — the cost of that would be in the hundreds of billions of dollars, it would rip up communities — it’s not appropriate.

This morning, the paper published what may be the worst editorial that has ever graced its pages, excoriating not Trump but Jeb Bush for running a lousy campaign against Trump. And by the way, I think we need to take a step back and chill out a little bit as it relates to the political correctness that somehow you have to be scolded every time you say something.” The final comment prompted widespread condemnation from advocacy groups who believe it paints a reductive portrait of the immigration system in the US. But criminals should be deported, and right now the Obama administration is not doing that.” Bush was essentially bashing GOP frontrunner Donald Trump for his immigration plans, which include deporting millions of illegal immigrants. The fundraiser marks a step-up in efforts from the former president for his brother, who has sought at times to put some distance between himself and his family on the campaign trail. “It’s no secret that President Bush is all in for Jeb, and he’s proud to help by participating in fundraisers across the country as his schedule permits,” Freddy Ford, a spokesman for George W.

Erin Oshiro, senior staff attorney for immigration and immigrant rights at Asian Americans Advancing Justice, said that any rhetoric that pits immigrants against each other distracts from reforms needed in the system. The New York billionaire quickly backed off his initial support for cutting off all of the more than $500 million the group gets from federal taxpayers each year. According to the newspaper, Bush won’t stick around the city the next day as New York marks the 14th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, instead heading back to Texas for a memorial there.

Bush’s careless response became a metaphor for the weaknesses of his presidency, has provided Jeb Bush with a powerful opportunity to portray himself as a more competent and more compassionate manager than his brother. Trump’s position that the group “has to stop with the abortions” but provides other worthwhile services could yield long-term political benefits. It isn’t the corrupting effects of money: another piece in this morning’s Times reports that Bernie Sanders, with an average donation of $31.30, is raising enough to compete on a reasonably equal basis with Hillary Clinton and her machine.

That’s because, as the Miami Herald recounts, Jeb Bush took command of Florida’s response to a series of major hurricanes during his tenure as governor: Bush’s ability to take charge in an emergency remains undisputed even among his critics, who note he left the Governor’s Mansion 15 months after the last storm with a high, 64-percent approval rating. “His popularity with Floridians is probably tethered to those moments probably more than any policy,” said Democrat Dan Gelber, a former Miami Beach state senator. Poll results from Quinnipiac University today say that stout majorities in the swing states of Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania oppose efforts to cut off federal funds.

Bush on Tuesday defended himself from earlier critics by saying that because he is married to a Mexican-American woman, he feels “bicultural” and therefore is sensitive to immigrant communities. And he backpedaled on his comments about Asian immigrants, saying that it applied to a “very narrowcasted system of fraud” in which pregnant women come to the US to take advantage of birthright laws. That “narrowcasted system” likely refers to a major federal crackdown on so-called “birth tourism” earlier this year that saw federal agents swarm a business that housed wealthy Chinese women who traveled to California to have American babies.

I’m sure you could use a lot of them about now.” “Thank you so much for your kind words,” Bush replied. “I really, really appreciate the sentiments expressed. The National Council of Asian Pacific Americans did the same, saying Bush’s comments were part of continued discrimination against the immigrant community. “We urge lawmakers to instead focus on developing humane legislative solutions to reform our broken immigration system,” the NCAPA said in a statement.

I have been truly inspired by people’s patience, courage and resolve and I have been so saddened by the suffering of so many.” The disaster-response narrative points to at least three themes that recommend Jeb Bush to voters: He’s tough and smart in a crisis, he cares about human suffering, and he’s not his brother. Among all the Republican presidential candidates, Bush unquestionably has the most generous attitude and liberal policy toward undocumented immigrants. For Donald Trump—who says he wants to re-write the Constitution and expel 11 million people—to criticize Bush for this is disgusting, but no surprise. In defending himself to reporters on Monday, Bush claimed, obviously dishonestly, that he was referring to Asian businesses that bring pregnant women in on tourist visas. The Times admits that “the phenomenon is real,” but instead of criticizing Trump for phony umbrage on behalf of both Asians and Latinos, went after Bush for giving Trump the opportunity to start “an unnecessary battle.” The Times then lectured Bush that “His campaign should get better at stage-managing press events.” This is preposterous.

It wasn’t long before Brown was removed from his role as coordinator of the federal response in New Orleans, and he ultimately resigned from the administration on September 12, 2005. Plus, while most candidates are trying to build name identification and fear establishing a negative image, Trump’s supporters already know his negatives. To the annoyance of the Clinton campaign, Biden’s allies have strategically leaked his modest, noncommittal doings to the media, which have given otherwise ho-hum confabs with Elizabeth Warren and President Obama’s former counsel Bob Bauer bombshell treatment …

Before the press and public can hone in on any particular outrage that would explode another candidate there’s another, even more incendiary controversy coming down. Red State’s Leon Wolf makes a military analogy: “Donald Trump is the political equivalent of chaff, a billion shiny objects all floating through the sky at once, ephemeral, practically without substance, serving almost exclusively to distract from more important things – yet nonetheless completely impossible to ignore.” Rightward, ho! Hillary Clinton, Democrats in her orbit tell POLITICO, is less concerned — and several top Clinton campaign officials have told associates they think a Biden bid would energize what has been a fairly lackluster performance by the candidate this far. Trump was trying to recognize another reporter and told Ramos, among other things, to “go back to Univision” and to “sit down.” Ramos kept asking, and a Trump security guard eventually escorted him from the room. But Ramos, who, in a moment of honesty about his own bias, later told CNN that “this is personal,” broke the basic rules of a formal press conference.

Reporters have different types of interaction with public officials and candidates, from casual conversations to jockey-for-position “gaggles” to candidate-behind-a-podium, reporters-in-chairs formal press conferences. Scott Walker’s, R-Wisc.] Medicaid plan could point the path forward…his proposal was one of the most detailed to be released by a candidate for office, and it added a twist: He would actually turn Medicaid into three different funding streams for three different populations.” Carly’s camp says old polls aren’t good polls – Carly Fiorina’s campaign released a statement today arguing that requirements for making the GOP September debate’s main stage are not representative of the field as it now stands. What would the reaction on the left be if a reporter from a conservative outlet started shouting questions at President Obama at a White House press conference because he hadn’t been called on?

The statement reads in part, “Despite being solidly in the top 10 by every measure, the political establishment is still rigging the game to keep Carly off the main debate stage next month.” Buffalo shows Rubio some love – TWC News: “U.S. Senator Marco Rubio left Amherst with a wave Tuesday night, not stopping to speak with media, but the presidential candidate had plenty to say to the supporters he spent the previous four hours with at a private fundraiser…Organizers wouldn’t give an exact total but said the event easily raised more than $200,000.” Rand says Trump battle not to blame for poll swoon – WaPo: “‘I think if you look closely at the poll numbers, our numbers actually shifted south before I ever attacked him,’ said Paul in a conference call before his speech in Alaska’s biggest city. ‘We probably didn’t really go after his fake conservative-ness for probably two months.’” If you love Nutella put this Turkish town on the top of your getaway list. In other Trump news from Iowa, The Donald called Secretary of State John Kerry a “schmuck.” Given the hard-line pro-Israel lean of many Jewish voters in Florida, Trump’s use of a Yiddish term to demean the face of the Iran nuclear deal seems like a pretty clever pander. Quartz writes, “Residents dispatch young children to schools named after top hazelnut-producing families, before roaming the aisles of supermarkets stacked high with hazelnut delicacies.

They pack off their college-age students to conduct hazelnut research at a nearby university, and then later retreat, hazelnuts in hand, to lounge in the waterfront park—which is dedicated, of course, to another hazelnut baron.” Originally thought to be planted as a means to prevent landslides these trees thrived in the rough terrain and poor growing climate giving the people in town much reverence to their popular produce. It’s a rare instance of foreign policy driving the debate in congressional races — in an off year, no less — and a potential preview of things to come if the Iran pact continues to generate heat into next year.

Despite the Democratic frontrunner’s dismissal of the classification of sensitive government information that passed through her private server as “a disagreement between agencies” that has “nothing to do with me” and her claim that evolved from “no classified materials” was contained in her exchanges to none that was marked, the numbers of emails that do hold secret information continues to grow. Potential violation – Fox News: “One of the emails that triggered the FBI probe into Hillary Clinton’s server contained classified intelligence from three different agencies, Fox News has learned – which could mean the State Department violated a President Obama-signed executive order by authorizing its release. Meanwhile, Sestak’s primary opponent, Katie McGinty, a former chief of staff to the Pennsylvania governor who is a formidable contender for the Democratic nomination, hasn’t taken a position. The Wall Street Journal’s Heather Haddon and Rebecca Ballhaus report that contractors in the home states of governors who are running for president are ponying up money for the federal campaigns.

Bernie toes the DNC line on debates – Time: “In the midst of ongoing pressure for more Democratic primary debates, it’s increasingly unlikely that Vermont Sen. But it is a welcome infusion of cash for a set of candidates who need it: There aren’t federal or state laws banning state contractors or recipients of business subsidies from donating to independent groups or campaigns backing presidential candidates. Bernie Sanders will flout the Democratic National Committee’s strict rules that threaten punishment for any candidate who attend more than the six official debates.

The super political-action committees can accept unlimited funds; campaigns are barred from coordinating with their affiliated super PACs. “Companies that are government contractors have First Amendment rights,” said Craig Engle, a partner at Arent Fox LLP in Washington, D.C., and former counsel to the National Republican Senatorial Committee. A six-year veteran of the force, Antoine Chambers was reassigned from his beat as a uniformed officer to desk duty after telling police officials that he would not obey a new division regulation barring officers from wearing dreadlocks, cornrows and braids. Stirewalt makes frequent appearances on the network, including “The Kelly File,” “Special Report with Bret Baier,” and “Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace.” He also provides expert political analysis for Fox News coverage of state, congressional and presidential elections.

Sanders’s fund-raising strategy will test the prevailing notion in Washington that no candidate can successfully compete on the national stage without tapping into the many millions of dollars that have poured into super PACs since the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision in 2010. Sanders said, because did not want to be beholden to “the millionaires and billionaires.” Hillary Clinton’s not the only State Department official who conducted some government business on personal email.

A 64-page inspector general’s report on the US embassy in Tokyo found that Ambassador Caroline Kennedy and the staff under her in Japan sometimes used personal email when they should have been using their federal accounts.
