Asked on CBS' "Face the Nation" if he was concerned about the possibility of violence if he were able to "overthrow" Trump with the delegates in Cleveland, Cruz insisted there wouldn't but said that Trump might try to fan the flames.

    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 ó 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.

    By Joel Leyden United States News AgencyNew York --- August 23, 2015 ... Social media is no longer the bastard son of the media. It is the media. 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...

The culmination of four years strategic planning (2011 Ė 2015) from Wall Street -via legislative priorities- are enmeshed within the outcome. The financiers have spent hundreds of millions on the construction. Anyone with even moderate research skills could assemble the same data if they had: a.) time, and b.) inclination. Sometimes, like the ďsplitter strategyď, conspiracies are not theory. The behavior inherent within the visible activity is simply just an outcome of a mutually beneficial...

    Donald Trumpís damage to the Republican Party, although already extensive, has barely begun. Republican quislings will multiply, slinking into support of the most anti-conservative presidential aspirant in their partyís history. These collaborationists will render themselves ineligible to participate in the partyís reconstruction. Ted Cruzís announcement of his preferred running mate has enhanced the nomination process by giving voters pertinent information. They already know the only important thing about Trumpís choice: His running mate will be unqualified for high office because he or she will think Trump is qualified.

The unsigned order from the justices did not explain their reasoning, or whether there was any opposition. While it is a temporary decision, it could affect enforcement of similar laws in other states during a hotly contested presidential election year. A lawsuit challenging the Texas law known as SB 14 is still pending in a federal court, and the immediate issue...

Ted Cruz was mathematically eliminated on Tuesday night. There are fewer delegates remaining than we originally projected because the delegates in Wyoming, Colorado and North Dakota were allocated in corrupt voter-less elections. But our April 2nd projections for Trump and Cruz were very, very close. Trump was awarded another 40 Pennsylvania delegates on Wednesday which brings his total to 987.

    Democratic strategist Dave "Mudcat" Saunders believes Donald Trump will beat Hillary Clinton like a "baby seal," and that working class whites who haven't already left the Democratic Party for cultural reasons will due so now for economic ones. "I know a ton of Democrats - male, female, black and white - here [in southern Virginia] who are going to vote for Trump. It's all because of economic reasons. It's because of his populist message," Mudcat told The Daily Caller Wednesday. [Snip] "Hillary hasnít been shot at yet. I hear on TV people taking about Bernie Sanders being negative, he ainít...

    Cruz's decision Wednesday to add former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina (and one-time GOP presidential candidate herself) as his running mate if he wins the nomination, may make his newly found H-1B beliefs a hard sell. At HP, Fiorina was a prominent supporter of the offshore outsourcing model, said Ron Hira, an associate professor of public policy at Howard University, who wrote about Fiorina's approaches in his book, Outsourcing America. "To pump up profits, she was an early adopter of the practice, which given HP's status as a leading Silicon Valley firm, pushed other firms to adopt offshoring," said Hira. "It...

    CHICAGO óA federal judge on Wednesday sentenced former House speaker J. Dennis Hastert to 15 months in federal prison ó a term above what even prosecutors had recommended and one that clearly takes into account the sexual abuse allegations that generated the criminal case against the Illinois Republican. The sentencing marked an ignominious moment in the life of a man who was once a revered high school teacher and wrestling coach in Illinois and who ascended into the highest ranks of American politics. Even before the hearing, prosecutors had revealed in court filings how Hastert allegedly had molested or inappropriately...
