    SANTA MONICA, California — During an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, former Mexican President Vicente Fox apologized Wednesday for the vulgar language he has used regarding GOP frontrunner Donald Trump’s proposal to build a wall along the southern border and invited the likely Republican nominee to Mexico to see the border from the other side.

    If those of us in the Republican party cannot let go of the personal animosity that exists against each other and unite against the Democratic party, then the 2016 election will be the last election in American history. What I mean by this is if Hillary Clinton becomes our next President then America will enter the longest period of uninterrupted Democrat rule since the days of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Meaning, as Daniel Greenfield of Front Page Mag writes, “it will be the single greatest opportunity for the left to transform America since the days of the New Deal”. Furthermore, Greenfield...

    Even before Donald Trump became the presumptive Republican nominee on Tuesday, Democrat presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton was looking toward the general election and planning to use executive action “go further than Obama” on gun control. In fact, implementing more gun control is “at the top of her to-do list.”

    Hillary Clinton claims to be Christian. Barack Obama claims to be a Christian. And I am claiming to be a brain surgeon! Any takers? You see just saying, "I am a brain surgeon," doesn't mean I can perform brain surgery. I would need to back it up with a diploma and years of training. In the same way, no American will get elected president claiming, "The Bible is outdated, it's just a bunch of stories. I am a humanistic socialist at heart!" Sure the left will have no problem with that, but you can't win without independents. So the candidates...

    Presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump is optimistic about his chances of winning a general election match-up versus Hillary Clinton because she hasn’t been vetted before, spokeswoman Katrina Pierson said Wednesday. “Oh, absolutely,” Pierson said in response to a question about Trump’s enthusiasm for facing Clinton in November. “Mainly because Hillary Clinton has never been truly vetted before. Particularly by the media,” she said to MSNBC’s Tamron Hall. “How many times has Hillary Clinton been asked about the specific role in Benghazi outside of the testimony?” Pierson asked.

    A huge wildfire in Fort McMurray, Alta., destroyed an entire neighbourhood and burned homes and businesses in several others Tuesday, and continues to rage out of control. By late afternoon, the entire city of 60,000 had been ordered evacuated. Residents by the thousands fled the fire and for hours caused gridlock on Highway 63, even overwhelming oilsands work camps, where beds and meals were offered. Police were patrolling the highway with cans of gas, after fuel supplies ran out in Fort McMurray, Wandering River and Grasslands.

    British Prime Minister David Cameron should apologise for his disparaging remarks about Donald Trump – who is now almost certain to become the Republican Presidential candidate after a crushing defeat of his main rival Ted Cruz last night – according to a key Trump campaign advisor. Mr. Cameron has called the Republican candidate “divisive stupid and wrong” for remarks about restricting Muslim immigration to the United States, something which Trump advisor George Papadopoulos thinks warrants an apology. Mr. Papadopoulos also blasted President Obama’s intervention in the EU referendum campaign, and stressed that Britain’s relationship with the U.S. would flourish, Brexit...

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, abruptly suspending his Republican presidential campaign Tuesday night after another crushing primary defeat to Donald Trump, assured emotional supporters in Indiana that they helped grow an “extraordinary” movement – declaring his team “left it all on the field” in their final push. ADVERTISEMENT "It appears that path [to victory] has been foreclosed," Cruz told supporters in Indianapolis. "Together, we left it all on the field of Indiana. We gave it everything we've got, but the voters chose another path, and so with a heavy heart but with boundless optimism for the long-term future of our nation,...

    BURLINGTON, Vt. – U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders’ campaign manager, Jeff Weaver, on Monday criticized a Hillary Clinton campaign fundraising scheme that state party leaders told Politico has been used as a self-serving “money-laundering” conduit. Despite Clinton’s pledges to rebuild state parties, Politico found that less than 1 percent of the $61 million raised by the Victory Fund has stayed in the state parties’ coffers. “Secretary Clinton is looting funds meant for the state parties to skirt fundraising limits on her presidential campaign,” Weaver said. “We think the Clinton campaign should let the state parties keep their fair share of the...

    The Hillary Clinton campaign made multiple payments to a company that specializes in hard drive and document destruction, campaign finance records show. The payments, which were recorded in February and March of 2016, went to the Nevada-based American Document Destruction, Inc., which claims expertise in destroying hard drives or "anything else that a hard drive can come from." "Our hard drive destruction procedures take place either at your site or at our secure facility in Sparks, NV," the company’s website states. “This decision is yours to decide based on cost and convenience to you.

  • Trump, Sanders lead in West Virginia (Trump leads 61% to 22% for Cruz)

    05/03/2016 12:06:23 PM PDT · by No Dems 2016 · 80 replies
    PPP's new West Virginia poll finds it's likely to just keep Donald Trump's recent streak of dominant victories right on going. Trump leads in the state with 61% to 22% for Ted Cruz and 14% for John Kasich. Trump, with a 67/24 favorability rating, is the only candidate GOP voters in the state even like. Both Kasich (32/50) and Cruz (32/53) come in with negative favorability ratings. Adding Carly Fiorina to the ticket has done little to help Cruz. Only 12% of voters say picking her as his running mate makes them more likely to vote for Cruz, compared to...

    For months, Ohio Gov. John Kasich has been arguing that he should be the Republican nominee for president because polls show he would defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton in the general election while front-runner Donald Trump would lose. Sen. Ted Cruz has made similar arguments, contending that to nominate Trump is to vote for Clinton. They may want to develop a new argument. A new Rasmussen poll shows Trump in the lead in a face-off with Clinton.

U.S. advisers had arrived on Monday morning to assist the Kurdish forces, known as peshmerga, in the northern city of Mosul, checking on “their morale and defenses,” the official said. The U.S. forces were as many as 3 miles from the frontlines when the ISIS fighters attacked, the official said. ISIS fighters “appeared to penetrate the forward line” and began attacking the peshmerga. A U.S. service...

"No, it won't, although Donald may do everything he can to encourage riots," he said. "You know, overthrow is such a loaded spin word as ... to bring nothing...

    Donald Trump holds a 15-point lead over Ted Cruz in the potentially decisive May 3 presidential primary race in Indiana, according to results from a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll. Trump gets support from 49 percent of likely Republican primary voters — followed by Cruz at 34 percent and John Kasich at 13 percent. If that margin in Indiana holds on Tuesday, Trump would be on a glide path towards obtaining the 1,237 delegates he needs to win the Republican nomination on a first ballot at the GOP convention in July.

There was a time when newspapers (print), billboards, lawn signs, buttons, radio and TV ruled in winning a political campaign. Those days are history. Classic media is still relevant, but no longer primary. It is no longer the question "should we add social media to our campaign budget?" But - "should we add newspaper, TV and radio to our campaign budget". The reason is called "instant", "feature" and "cost effective". One need...
