Carson Calls Cruz a Cheater

GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson isn’t mincing words. He says Ted Cruz cheated on his way to winning the Iowa caucuses. Carson contends that Cruz’s campaign staff incorrectly and purposely spread the word to Iowa caucus voters that the good doctor had or was planning on suspending his campaign. “There has never been a more tainted victory in the Iowa caucuses,” said Jason Osborne, senior communications strategist for Ben Carson for America. “From the mailing denounced by the Iowa Secretary of State to his abject lies about Dr. Ben Carson, Senator Ted Cruz demonstrated he is the worst kind of Washington insider.” Carson details Cruz’s missteps on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends.”

Tie-Iowa Bad News For Hillary

Avowed socialist candidate Bernie Sanders astounded the political world by battling the more established Hillary Clinton to a virtual tie in the Iowa caucuses. So that begs the question: Is this really a good result for Clinton? Fox News host Sean Hannity welcomes contributors Doug Schoen and Monica Crowley for a spirited debate in this election-night special.

Obamacare Cratering

Fox News White House correspondent Kevin Corke reports that President Obama’s signature legislation–the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare–is buckling under unforeseen problems by the administration. And the diagnosis going forward isn’t pretty. Obama recently crowed about securing health insurance for 18 million people who didn’t have it before, failing to mention the millions more who are still uninsured and the skyrocketing premiums for those struggling with the bureaucracy of Obamacare. “The Affordable Care Act is buckling under the weight of reality,” Corke says. “That according to the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office, which says the number of new enrollees into Obamacare is cratering.” Corke explains further in this appearance on “Special Report” with Bret Baier.

Another Obama Failure

President Obama chalked up yet another foreign policy failure recently, when he abandoned the program to help arm and train rebels in the fight against Syrian dictator President Bashar al-Assad. It’s another fiasco in a long list of leadership embarrassments for President Destruct-O in the Middle East. The cowardly move drew sharp criticism from former Republican Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. “There aren’t words strong enough to describe the failure of the Obama Administration in national security and foreign policy,” he said. Listen to Gingrich elaborate to host Sean Hannity in this edition of “Hannity” on Fox News.

O’Reilly Sets the Record Straight

Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly sets the record straight on the villification of Donald Trump in an edition of his “Talking Points” editorial on The O’Reilly Factor. Armed with a surfeit of viable statistics, many of which vindicate Trump’s comments on immigration, O’Reilly breaks down the Mexican economic and social structures, assails San Francisco’s sanctuary city status and lays it on our politicians for not solving the problem. O’Reilly is dead-on in his assessment. There’s plenty of blame to go around, both political parties notwithstanding. Donald Trump’s only mistake was a poor choice of words, or word. Rest assured that in the context of his entire discourse on immigration, the truth will set him free.

TAPS a Memorial Day Blessing

As we celebrate Memorial Day and the patriots who paid the ultimate price for their country, Fox News features the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS), an organization that helps families cope with the unimaginable loss of a loved one. Host Elizabeth Prann discusses the program and its benefits with TAPS founder and president Bonnie Carroll and Amy Stoddard, whose husband was a casualty of the Afghanistan War in 2005.

The Holy War Begins

The ISIS beheadings of 21 Christians from Egypt shocked the world and has Fox News’ anchor Bill O’Reilly fuming. Meanwhile our illustrious president remains on the sidelines, reluctant to confront the terrorism head-on. O’Reilly, who now sees the Middle East disaster as the beginning of a new Holy War, points out that 57 percent of Americans disapprove of the way President Obama is handling the ISIS crisis and 47 percent favor sending ground troops to Syria and Iraq to combat the problem, according to a recent Fox News Poll. Says O’Reilly, “The utter brutality that faces the world and the country today has to be confronted, and somebody has to lead that effort.” Don’t miss the rest of O’Reilly’s commentary.

Jordanian Pilot Burned Alive

In its most horrific display of savagery to date, ISIS shocked the civilized world by making good on its threat to execute Jordanian pilot Mu’ath Al Kaseasbeh by dousing him with an accelerant in a cage and burning him to death. The Islamic savages released a video of the execution earlier today, although a closer study of the clip reveals it took place weeks earlier. ISIS had offered the swap of Kaseasbeh for a female Islamic suicide bomber involved in a fatal bombing in Jordan in 2005. When Jordan’s King Abdullah demanded proof that Kaseasbeh was still alive, ISIS refused to provide it. The cowardly ISIS act has incensed the Jordanian nation and King Abdullah is vowing absolute and immediate revenge. Early reports are Jordan will execute the suicide bomber, Rashida al-Rashawi, and two Islamic terrorists currently behind held in Jordan. Join “The Five” on Fox News for details of this horrific turn of events.

Garner Death Troubles O’Reilly

A Staten Island, New York, grand jury refused to indict a police officer in the chokehold-death of Eric Garner, a black man accused of selling “loose” cigarettes (untaxed cigarettes), putting the New York City area on alert for a Ferguson, Missouri-like incident. Interestingly, a video of the chokehold incident has surfaced, stirring the ire of O’Reilly. “Upon seeing the video and hearing Garner say he couldn’t breathe, I was extremely troubled,” O’Reilly says. “I would have loosened my grip. I desperately wish the officer would have done that.” O’Reilly elaborates in his “Talking Points” segment and speaks with radio talk show host and author Tavis Smiley about the event.

Compromise Or More Gridlock?

Fox News’ Campaign Cowboys–anchor Chris Wallace, Republican strategist Karl Rove and Democratic strategist Joe Trippi–debate what the future holds for the country in light of the GOP landslide victory in the Midterm Elections. With the Republicans firmly in control of Congress, will compromise dominate the final two years of the Obama Administration or are we buckled in for more gridlock? Join the Fox News political cowpokes as they address Obamacare, the Keystone XL Pipeline, immigration reform and tax reform.
