  • Riot police confront Donald Trump protesters outside California rally

    05/28/2016 6:36:15 PM PDT · by 2ndDivisionVet · 12 replies
    Police officers in riot gear declared a protest against Donald Trump unlawful as they made around dozen arrests outside a rally in California. The presumptive Republican nominee was speaking to an enthusiastic crowd of supporters in San Diego's convention centre. But outside around 1,000 people demonstrated against the billionaire tycoon, in tense scenes which included police pepper spraying some of the protesters. Police arrested one man who climbed a railing separating protesters from officers. His arrest led demonstrators to spray water and throw empty plastic bottles at officers. In another tense exchange, police shoved back demonstrators to separate them from...

    It's been about eight years since the Great Recession, but California voters still rank jobs and the economy as the most important issue heading into the presidential primary election. That's one of the findings of a new Field Poll released Thursday, just 12 days before the June 7 runoff. Seven out of 10 likely voters across the political spectrum rated the economy as a top concern, according to results from the Field Poll conducted for the USC Schwarzenegger Institute for State and Global Policy.

    Dozens of people fanned out Saturday to continue looking for a 15-year-old California girl who was abducted by a 19-year-old man, later shot dead by police. Search teams are focusing on an area near the Northern California town of Jenner. It's about 65 miles from where a witness saw Pearl Pinson abducted at gunpoint from a pedestrian bridge near her home in the Bay Area community of Vallejo on Wednesday morning. "She was forced into that car," Rose Pinson said through tears Friday, desperate to find her younger sister.

    It was 6:30 a.m. at the United States Military Academy, the sun was rising over the Hudson River, and Paula Broadwell was in athletic gear. With a half-dozen women, she rotated between sprints and burpees. Sweating onto the pavement, the group was perched atop an overlook called Trophy Point, in the shadow of a 46-foot battle monument memorializing those killed in the Civil War. There is a female statue in bronze at the top, arms outstretched regally, who is said to represent “fame.” Ms. Broadwell was here in April for a 40th anniversary celebration for the academy’s first class of...

    Scandal: Which is worse — keeping classified information in a personal journal at home or doing government business and transmitting classified data on a private email account managed from the Clinton family home? This adds a new level of premeditated secrecy and deceit to the actions of the presumptive 2016 Democratic presidential nominee. It also adds a new level of hypocrisy to the most transparent administration in history's pursuit of former CIA Director and commander of American forces in Iraq and Afghanistan, Gen. David Petraeus. Petraeus, who had an extramarital affair with biographer Paula Broadwell, pleaded guilty, after a lengthy...

We’re busy getting ready for the convention in Cleveland and the pieces are pretty much set up on the board, yet it seems that the winner of the 2012 GOP primary can’t bring himself to step back and let somebody else get on message. This pattern of behavior was on display yet again this week when Mitt let everyone know...

"I think that would be a terrible, terrible idea," Sanders said Friday in an interview with The Young Turks, a pro-Sanders online news show. "That would say to the millions of people who have supported us, that have worked with us, that would say all of your energy, all of your votes, all of your beliefs are irrelevant.

More: One poster referenced Trump’s wife, who immigrated to the United States from Slovenia: “The Art of the Deal. Deport Melania. Legalize 11 million.” Another: “Trump, Shame of America.” Another: “Jesus would not vote for Trump.” And: “Racist, go home.” As the rally progressed inside, a few protesters — including two women...

    I was blown away at Walmart today when I came upon a Trump coloring book. Has anyone else seen it? It was quite amazing. It has Trump in many famous renderings such as him as The Statue of Liberty, Abe Lincoln, his head on Mt. Rushmore, superman, and many other famous characters. The book was actually a little scary. It reminded me of something that the anti Christ might have disseminated about himself, but it was a lot of fun. Too bad Obama, this wasn't and couldn't have been about you. You have been Trumped!

    Donald Trump’s best ally in winning over skeptical Republicans is turning out to be Hillary Clinton. Having overcome a multimillion-dollar “Never Trump” campaign aimed at blocking him from the Republican nomination, he’s now benefiting from a wave of GOP donors, party leaders, voters and conservative groups that are uniting under a new banner: “Never Hillary.” “Nothing unites Republicans better than a Clinton,” says Scott Reed, a political strategist for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce who has advised previous GOP campaigns. While Reed says there remain “many unknowns” about Trump, he adds that “the knowns about Hillary are very powerful motivators...

Trump has been throwing compliments Bernie Sanders‘ way recently, saying he has some good ideas and the Democrats are being unfair to him and he should consider going third party, while at a rally yesterday Trump went back to trashing “Lyin’ Ted” Cruz. And that really pissed off Levin, who wondered, “Does he talk about Bernie Sanders this way? He treats Bernie Sanders with an odd respect.” He mocked the way Trump fans...

    Hillary Clinton’s email headache is about to get even worse. A scathing inspector general’s report this week was just the first in what is likely to be a series of official actions related to her private server stemming from the FBI, a federal courthouse and Capitol Hill. Clinton’s presidential campaign has failed to quiet the furor over the issue, which has dogged her for more than a year. In the next few weeks — just as the likely Democratic presidential nominee hopes to pivot towards a general election — it will face its toughest scrutiny yet. “All of that feeds...

    Towards the end of April and into early May, several news outlets ran reports (citing anonymous sources) that the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail was expected to be wrapped in the coming weeks. However, a few weeks later, FBI Director James Comey met with reporters and indicated the Bureau had no set timeline for completing the investigation. He even stated that the upcoming political conventions and general election would not factor into when the investigation would be completed. So, lets take Comey at his word and imagine this scenario: It is Friday, January 20, 2017...

Miller told the packed crowd that Bill and Hillary Clinton’s long-established global scheme of trading political favors for financial kickbacks is “documented in Clinton Cash—which everybody should get a copy of–and it documents a simple premiss of how government operates under Hillary.” “Give money to Bill, get favors from Hill,” Miller said, while holding up a copy of the book and laughing along with the cheering crowd...

    Democrats could hardly believe their good fortune last month when it became clear that Hillary Clinton was headed to a general election showdown with Donald J. Trump. Mr. Trump carried so much baggage and had insulted so many voting blocs that some Clinton supporters began to imagine a landslide. But early optimism that this would be an easy race is evaporating. In the corridors of Congress, on airplane shuttles between New York and Washington, at donor gatherings and on conference calls, anxiety is spreading through the Democratic Party that Mrs. Clinton is struggling to find her footing.

In this case, two young anti-Trump protesters in San Diego yesterday were holding the Mexican flag upside down and the Telemundo cameraman gave them directions on the proper way to hold the flag. This is followed by a really nasty attitude by one of the protesters including spitting in the direction of Marcus. But, hey, that behavior is understandable...

Donald Trump first shared his analysis of the climate crisis in a now infamous 2012 tweet-rant: “The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive,” he claimed. The Republican presidential hopeful has since dialed back the rhetoric, calling that earlier claim a joke. But — as in other areas of critical domestic and international concern —...

    That much of the world (in partnership with U.S. “elites”) treats the hapless American taxpayer about like Mr Haney treated Oliver Douglas, Bernie Maddoff treated his clients and the world treats Rodney Dangerfield has become a campaign theme of enormous popularity and consequence. I think you know for which campaigner.Well, there’s one issue one which the American taxpayer can look across the oceans, touch his nose with his thumb, extend his hand, and fan his fingers while snickering “NEENER!...NEENER!...NEENER!--You SUCKERS!” You see, amigos: the taxpayers of nations from France to Spain to Germany, from South Korea to Japan and from...

    Jesse Hughes – lead vocalist of the rock band Eagles of Death Metal, which was performing at the Bataclan theatre in Paris when terrorists attacked and killed 89 fans and 130 people overall last November – believes the fear of offending Muslims is making the West vulnerable. And the fear of offending Muslims, he says in an interview with Taki's Magazine, is a by-product of the culture of liberalism and political correctness being propagated by Western countries. Asked during the interview if he thought political correctness was "killing our natural instincts and making us vulnerable" in light of the terrorist...

  • Reporter Claims She’s Offended by Trump Calling Elizabeth Warren ‘Pocahontas’ (VIDEO)

    At a recent press briefing where Trump referred to Elizabeth Warren as Pocahontas, a freelance journalist named Nicole Robertson claimed she found the comment offensive. Like Elizabeth Warren, Robertson claims to be a Native American. You would think she’d be more offended by Elizabeth Warren lying about such a thing than Trump calling her out for it. Furthermore, Warren has been shooting her mouth off and insulting Trump for weeks now. What is he supposed to do, just take it and not push back at all? This is just further proof that the media is made up almost entirely of...

    Donald Trump has a simple formula to get America's energy industry back on its feet: regulate less and start drilling a lot more for oil and gas. In his first in-depth speech about energy policy, Trump on Thursday promised to make American energy "dominance" a strategic economic and foreign policy goal of the U.S. "America's incredible energy potential remains untapped. It's a wound that is totally self-inflected," Trump said during a speech at a North Dakota oil industry conference.

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Donald Trump's in Fresno, California. He is doing an event as we speak, and he's on another one of his rolls. You know, Trump is a circumstantial, situational guy. He is not an ideologue. He's not. You know, he's out there making a speech today, and his ideology has nothing to do with what he's talking about. He's reacting to circumstances that happened today -- the newsfeed, if you will. He's responding to what's in the news today, and he's talking about it. He's reacting to somebody. 'Cause somebody said that he's actually close with the guy...

    Rubio is on board, saying that he plans to attend the Republican convention in Cleveland and that he would be “honored” to help Trump however he can. “I want to be helpful. I don’t want to be harmful, because I don’t want Hillary Clinton to be president,” Rubio said in a CNN interview that will be aired Sunday. Long a star of the mainstream conservative movement, Rubio is one of the starkest symbols of the GOP’s rapid capitulation to Trump. Nearly every prominent Republican — from lawmakers to governors to former White House officials — has acquiesced as polling shows...

    Amid speculation he is on the short list, Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions told The Daily Caller on Friday that he “would consider” an offer to be Donald Trump’s running mate, “like any other citizen should,” if offered. It’s the farthest Sessions has gone in publicly acknowledging interest in serving in a potential Trump administration. During an half-hour interview in his Capitol Hill office about a wide-range of topics — including immigration, trade, national security and the 2016 campaign— The DC asked Sessions if he is open to being Trump’s running mate. “If I could help him in some way —...

    Applications for U.S. citizenship soared in the first three months of the year compared with 2015, appearing to confirm the predictions of several Democratic-leaning groups that the numbers would climb in response to the presidential campaign of Republican Donald Trump.
