Bobby Jindal Just Endorsed a Candidate for President – This Is Surprising [+video]

There have been plenty of eyebrow-raising endorsements of GOP presidential candidates by unexpected people (like former VP candidate Sarah Palin backing Donald Trump), and this one from former LA Gov. Bobby Jindal might be just as unexpected.

Rubio has picked up former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum’s endorsement, earned SC Sen. Tim Scott‘s support, and also has SC Rep. Trey Gowdy on his side.

Of course, Jindal campaigned for the presidency during this current cycle, but never gained any traction in the polls nationwide.

Bobby Jindal to Attend Massive Prayer Rally for a ‘Nation in Crisis’ [+video]

A Christian group called American Renewal Project will host a major prayer meeting this Saturday at the North Charleston Coliseum to “pray and fast for America.” The six-hour event, which is being billed as “The Response SC,” will feature South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley and Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal as two of the day’s speakers.

A press release for the event states that the biblical response to a nation in crisis is “to gather in humility and repentance and ask God to intervene.” It describes the meeting as “a historic gathering of people from across the nation to pray and fast for America” that hopes to draw some 10,000 people to “worship God, seek repentance and pray for reconciliation, reformation and revival.”

The encounter, which will be live-streamed by Breitbart News, is being billed as an inter-faith meeting to pray “for those in need, for life, for strong families and just laws.”

Though some have suggested that Jindal will be using the occasion for “stumping,” organizers have insisted on the strictly spiritual nature of the meeting. Doug Stringer, a Houston minister who is helping to organize The Response SC, said the event will include music from three worship teams, but “no egos and no logos.”

Similarly, David Lane, president and founder of the American Renewal Project, said the meeting would focus on fasting and prayer to Jesus and would be non-commercial and non-political. (Read more from “Bobby Jindal to Attend Massive Prayer Rally for a ‘Nation in Crisis'” HERE)

That’s the ticket?

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, who is considering a White House run, may have narrowed his choice of running mates. During a joint appearance at a Good Friday prayer breakfast in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Jindal was asked about picking Duck Dynasty star Willie Robertson as his side man in the coming campaign.

“As a running mate? Sure, but as vice president—I assume that’s what you’re asking—not the other way around,” Jindal told reporters, adding, “He’s a great guy, I think he’d be a great running mate. It’d be a huge pay cut for him, so I’m not sure he’d be willing to do it.”

Jindal has made no secret of his admiration for Robertson and the rest of the Duck Dynasty clan. His header photo on Twitter, for example, features a gathering of the Jindal and Robertson clans.

Bobby Jindal Slams Republican Party Changes to Primary System

By Jon Ward. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal on Monday morning dismissed the Republican National Committee’s efforts to reduce the number of debates in the Republican presidential primary, and to shorten the primary process, calling the RNC’s changes “futile.”

Jindal also made clear he has no plans – if he runs for the nomination – to abide by the RNC’s attempt to keep candidates from participating in debates that are not sanctioned by the party committee.

“I know there is a lot of concern, especially in this town among Republican party leaders,” Jindal said. “There’s this ideal of theirs, this idealistic belief, that if we could just have fewer debates, if we could have a gentler, kinder nominating process, that would be good for the party and good for the nominee. Well you know what? Democracy is messy.”

“And the donors, the political leaders, the establishment, the pundits, they don’t get to pick our nominee,” Jindal said at a breakfast with reporters hosted by the Christian Science Monitor.

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus has made clear over the past two years that he believes the 2012 Republican primary was a mess, which dragged on for too long and allowed for too many debates, leading to constant intraparty fighting and exhausting the candidates. The RNC currently says it will sanction nine Republican debates, with an option to add three more. (Read more from “Bobby Jindal Slams Republican Party” HERE)


Bobby Jindal Hammers Common Core in DC

By Eric Pianin. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal was in Washington on Monday to promote his new education initiatives and to lash out at the Common Core national education standards that have been warmly embraced by former Florida governor Jeb Bush, one of Jindal’s potential rivals for the 2016 GOP presidential campaign. . .

Jindal yesterday sought to focus attention on his “K-12 Education Reform: A Roadmap,” which he reportedly believes will set him apart from Bush and other potential rivals should he enter the 2016 presidential field. “America is stuck in a rut on education, and has been for half a century,” Jindal’s document declares. He promotes the ideas of parental choice, limited government and educator freedom as the key to success, while dismissing Common Core as a monopoly government-provided education system.

But it was a rocky visit for Jindal who was repeatedly asked by reporters about Louisiana’s dire financial straits, including a $1.6 billion budget deficit, the deepest per-student cuts in higher education of any state in the country and negative credit ratings by Moody’s.

‘They Can Rot in Hell’: Arkansas Senator Says Send More Terrorists to Guantanamo Bay [+videos]

By Fox News Insider. Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) made some impassioned remarks about Guantanamo Bay at today’s Senate Armed Services Committee hearing.

Cotton, an Iraq War veteran, pushed back against the idea that leaving the prison open is a recruitment tool for terrorists around the world.

He argued that the prison did not exist when terrorists attacked the USS Cole in 2000 and then struck on 9/11.

“In my opinion, the only problem with Guantanamo Bay is that there are too many empty beds and cells there right now. We should be sending more terrorists there for further interrogation to keep this country safe. As far as I’m concerned, every last one of them can rot in hell. But as long as they don’t do that, they can rot in Guantanamo Bay,” said Cotton, during an exchange with Brian P. McKeon, Principal Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Policy.

Governor Bobby Jindal: Muslim Leaders Have Responsibility to Say Terrorists are ‘Going Straight to Hell’

By Lauretta Brown. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal (R) told a gathering in Washington on Thursday that Muslim leaders have a responsibility to say that terrorists are “going straight to hell.”

“Individual Muslim leaders have a responsibility,” said Jindal, “to denounce not just the acts of violence but these individuals, to say they are not going to enjoy a reward in the afterlife, but rather they’re going straight to Hell for these awful, barbaric acts they continue to commit–killing school children, killing teenagers who are watching soccer, burning a man alive, killing cartoonists because they don’t like their products.”

Speaking at the American Principles Project (APP) State Lunch, Jindal also said the leaders of the Western world “have a responsibility to insist on assimilation and integration for those that want to come and live in our societies. (Read more from this story HERE)

Watch Gov. Bobby Jindal’s Shocking Statement About Muslims

By David Brody. Hey John McCain: Move over. You have a “straight talk” partner. His name is Gov. Bobby Jindal. Watch below.

This is what he said today in London, England, about Islamic terrorists who think they’re going to heaven.

Gov. Bobby Jindal: Muslim leaders must make clear that these individuals are not going to enjoy the afterlife, they’re not going to be martyrs but rather they’re going to hell.

There’s not enough left to be said other than, “Preach it, brother!” (Read more about Bobby Jindal’s statement about Muslims HERE)


Muslim Population Growing in America

By Carol Brown. Even when Muslims are a minority population they can and do transform whole cultures and societies. And not for the better.

Why? Because their holy book is a totalitarian ideology founded on submission and world domination. And toward that end, Islam is on the march. Meanwhile, the West remains mired in cowardice and complicity. Nowhere can this be seen more clearly than in Europe, which is on the fast track to join the Caliphate.

Not to be outdone by Europe’s madness, the United States is traveling down the same bloody path, importing large numbers of Muslims from Islamic countries thanks to the Islamophile sitting in the Oval Office and a nation full of dhimmis.

Estimates on the number of Muslims living in the US vary, ranging from 3 million to 7 million. Whatever the precise number, it’s already outdated as it rises with each passing nanosecond. (Read more from this story HERE)

Teacher union threatens to sue private schools if they accept gov’t vouchers

A Louisiana teachers union is threatening private schools with legal action if they accept money from a new voucher program – and the threat has already forced at least one school to put its participation in the program on hold.

The demand was sent a few weeks ago by law firm representing the Louisiana Association of Educators and several other interests, and it argues the state-approved program is illegal because participating schools would be receiving an unconstitutional payment of public funds.

The two-page letter further states if schools don’t agree, then the law firm has “no alternative” than to take legal action.

“Our clients have directed us to take whatever means necessary to prevent the unconstitutional transfer of public money,” wrote Brian Blackwell, of the firm Blackwell & Associates.

The Louisiana program was initiated by Gov. Bobby Jindal, a Republican, and expands on one started in 2008. The state legislature approved the proposal in April, now making the program essentially open to students in kindergarten through grade 12.

Romney’s VP pick narrowed to these pro-lifers

Speculation about which vice-presidential candidate Republican hopeful Mitt Romney will select to run with him against pro-abortion President Barack Obama has reached a fever pitch in recent weeks.

A new report from Reuters claims three pro-life elected officials top the Romney list, despite the fact that campaign officials say no decision has been made and that political pundits are making cases for other possible selections. As Reuters reports:

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney appears to be in the final stages of deciding who to pick as his vice presidential running mate, with speculation growing that he has narrowed his choice down to a short-list of three.

Ohio Senator Rob Portman, former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty and Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal all offer various strengths to Romney should he decide to pick one of them to join his battle to unseat President Barack Obama and his vice president, Joe Biden, in the November 6 election.

“No decision has been made. An announcement could happen any time between now and the convention, but it will only happen after a decision has been made and no decision has been made,” said Romney campaign senior adviser Eric Fehrnstrom.
