    BURLINGAME, Calif. — Ted Cruz is speaking confidently about knocking off Donald Trump to take the GOP nomination, but his top staffers admit they’re getting nervous. In interviews, several aides, speaking on the condition of anonymity, expressed growing alarm that Cruz would lose Indiana’s primary on Tuesday — an outcome that would be a major blow to his hopes of holding Trump below the 1,237 delegates needed to clinch the GOP nomination on the party convention’s first ballot. The aides concede that, without a win in an Indiana primary where 57 delegates are at stake, Cruz’s shot at the nomination...

If passed and signed into law, California would be the first state in the nation to request illegal immigrants be covered through a state exchange, the Los Angeles Times reported. It is against the law for California to allow illegal immigrants to enroll in Covered California, the state’s Obamacare health insurance exchange, Sally C. Pipes, president and CEO of the pro-free-market Pacific Research Institute, told The Daily Signal in an emailed response.

    The protests outside Donald Trump's rally in Costa Mesa on Thursday night appear to point to an upcoming month of activism by Latinos and others as the GOP front-runner tries to seal the presidential nomination in the state. While the billionaire businessman has faced protests elsewhere, California could prove to be potent ground for demonstrators because of its large Latino population and Trump's negative comments about immigrants in this country illegally. A USC/Times poll found that 77% of Latinos in California have a negative view of Trump. Yet among Republicans, Trump is ahead in that poll and several others. Although...

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...

The culmination of four years strategic planning (2011 – 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 “splitter strategy“, conspiracies are not theory. The behavior inherent within the visible activity is simply just an outcome of a mutually beneficial...

    California politicians have voted down a proposal to designate May 26 - the actor's birthday - as John Wayne Day. The idea was rejected after some said Wayne had made racist comments against blacks and Native Americans. The resolution for John Wayne Day was submitted by Assemblyman Matthew Harper, who described Wayne as the "prototypical American Hero, symbolizing such traits as self-reliance, grace under pressure, resolve and patriotism." But Harper's colleague Lorena Gonzalez said Wayne's movies showed a lot of Native Americans being killed and that they sanctioned the white occupation of the continent.

    BROWNSVILLE – The number of people crossing the border illegally is on the rise. The Border Patrol chief said the number of people coming across is consistent with the surge two years ago. Chief Patrol Agent and Commander of the South Texas Corridor Manuel Padilla Jr. insisted this time, his agents are better prepared and border security isn’t in jeopardy. However, some people don’t agree. More than 80,000 people crossed the border illegally since October. It includes more unaccompanied children and family members from Central America and Mexico. It’s about the same as during the immigration crisis of 2014.

    BURLINGAME, Calif. — Donald J. Trump got a taste on Friday of what his next month of campaigning in California could be like. He was forced to exit his motorcade and walk through a field, climbing an embankment with Secret Service agents helping him, to avoid angry demonstrators on the street. “We went under a fence and through a fence, and oh, boy, it felt like I was crossing the border, actually,” Mr. Trump said when he finally made it to a ballroom to speak at California’s Republican Party convention. For the next 25 minutes, though, Mr. Trump spoke little...

    Last night, anti-Trump protesters rioted in Costa Mesa, California. Yes, rioted. That’s what you call it when “demonstrations” turn into this: [video of rioters trying to turn over police car] Or this: [photo of bloody Trump supporter] Just imagine for a moment the shrieking outrage if Trump supporters had tried to flip a car outside a Hillary Clinton rally. Imagine the fury at the sight of a bloody man wearing a Hillary shirt. So how did the mainstream media cover the anti-Trump riot? Hot Air’s Larry O’Connor has the details: Check out the LA Times headline: Protests rage outside Trump...

    Burlingame, California (CNN) — Hundreds of demonstrators descended on the California Republican Convention Friday to protest Donald Trump ahead of his speech there. Protesters -- some of whom wore bandanas over their faces and carried Mexican flags -- blocked off the road in front of the Hyatt Regency here, forcing the GOP front-runner's motorcade to pull over along a concrete median outside the hotel's back entrance. Trump and his entourage got out and walked into the building. At one point, about two dozen protesters tried to rush barriers near the hotel. Police officers then rushed to the building's doors, successfully...

    Fox News host Meghan McCain argued on Thursday that GOP hopeful Ted Cruz had been smart to choose Carly Fiorina as his runningmate because she “warms up” the Texas senator. “I love Carly Fiorina,” McCain explained on the Thursday edition of Fox’s Outnumbered. “She has gone after Hillary Clinton the hardest. She rips out her jugular and serves it to me on a platter, which is what I want coming up in the election.” “What I like about Carly Fiorina is she warms up Ted Cruz,” she continued. “She’s going to reach out in Indiana to moms to women. How...
