  • Nothing Changed Yesterday—And Trump Is Still Not on the Path to Nomination

    National Review ^ | 04/20/2016 | Jeremy Carl
    Before we begin debunking, let’s start with the obvious: It was undoubtedly a good night for Trump and unsurprisingly so, as NR’s Henry Olsen predicted on election eve. Trump looks to have taken 90 delegates and 60 percent of the vote, somewhat better than projections, although most election-eve forecasts had him taking at least 85 or so of New York’s 95 delegates (Olsen had him pegged for 87). But despite his victory, Trump got only a very modest bump from New York last night. And despite the breathless TV and print commentary from our New York–centered media, he still faces...

    In 2010 Vice President Joe Biden said Iraq was going to be one of the Obama administration’s great accomplishments. “I’m very optimistic about Iraq and it’s going to be one of the great achievements of this administration.” (Video) Biden was able to make these comments after the Bush surge resulted in enormous reduction in violence, an increase in GDP, peak oil production, increased electricity rates, a free press and democratic elections. But that all changed after Barack Obama withdrew US troops from Iraq in 2011. Since then, ISIS took over one-third of the country and initiated a genocide of Iraqi...

    U.S. Vice President Biden told Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in a call on Friday that the United States is prepared to move forward with a third loan guarantee agreement to support reforms against corruption, the White House said. The United States promised the third $1 billion loan guarantee in November, but it was contingent on progress on reforms and fighting corruption. Biden also welcomed the appointment of a new prosecutor general in Ukraine as "an important first step to bringing much needed reform," to the prosecutor general office. Ukrainian lawmakers on Thursday appointed Yuriy Lutsenko, a close ally of Poroshenko,...

    Vice President Joe Biden says he “would have been the best president” if he had mounted a successful campaign in the 2016 election, but that forgoing the race was the right decision for his family. Speaking with “Good Morning America” co-anchor Robin Roberts in an exclusive interview that aired today, Biden said he had planned to run but changed course only after his eldest son Beau died last May. “No one should ever seek the presidency unless they're able to devote their whole heart and soul and passion into just doing that,” he said. “And, Beau was my soul.

    Joe Biden is in Los Angeles this week, but someone ought to tell him that he shouldn’t expect to be recognized by too many of the locals. During his ABC show Monday, late night host Jimmy Kimmel aired a rather funny video of one of his staff asking Angelenos to identify Biden. Not a single one of those interviewed (which, in fairness, was slightly less than the entire population of Los Angeles) knew Biden was the Vice President of the United States. We’re not sure if the segment is a testament to deceptive film-making, the irrelevance of Biden, the stupidity...

Yet, those lessons are still not put into practice in most places in this country, so please forgive me for praising innovation in applying a rudimentary understanding of human nature to government policies regarding the poor. The first cliché to be cited is the old one about federalism constituting the laboratory of democracy.

    Donald Trump’s extraordinary Tuesday evening in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Delaware got me thinking: if this GOP presidential process were a prizefight, the referee would have stopped it last night. The announcer would have exclaimed, “ Donald Trump, winner by knockout.” The impressiveness of Donald Trump’s clean sweep of the “Acela Primary States” on Tuesday isn’t in the victories themselves. Everyone knew that Trump would do well on Tuesday in the more moderate northeast. It’s the margin that’s notable. This was a shellacking. The knock on Trump was that he had a ceiling or that when other candidates...

    There wasn’t any mystery about how Tuesday night’s five Republican presidential primaries would end up: in Donald Trump’s win column. The only thing to watch were his margins: Could he close out against John Kasich in certain highly educated, suburban congressional districts in Connecticut and Maryland, and could he break a 50 percent statewide winner-take-all threshold in Connecticut? Yes, he could! He could do all of that, and he did. He won every state by double digits and cruised in every congressional district awarding bound delegates. He made a joke of his competition and the #NeverTrump cause, just as he...

The Clintons and their family foundation have at least five shell companies registered to the address 1209 North Orange Street in Wilmington, Delaware — which is also home to some 280,000 other companies who use the location to take advantage of the state's low taxes, limited disclosure requirements, and other business incentives. Two of the five are tied to Bill and Hillary Clinton specifically. One, WJC, LLC, is used by the former president to collect his consulting fees. The other, ZFS Holdings, LLC, was used by the former secretary of state to process her $5.5 million...

The Vice President went on to excoriate Israel over a host of issues. Despite a partial freeze on construction in Jewish...

Biden, in a speech to the advocacy group J Street, offered a grim outlook for peace efforts, reflecting dim hopes for progress during the remainder of the Obama administration. Although he said both Israelis and Palestinians shared blame for undermining trust and shirking responsibility, he was emphatic in his critique of Netanyahu’s government, suggested his approach raised “profound questions” about how...

A day later, the entity dropped $1 million into a super PAC with ties to Jersey City, N.J., Mayor Steven Fulop, a Democrat considering a gubernatorial bid. The trust, whose owner remains unknown, is part of a growing cadre of mystery outfits financing big-money super PACs. Many were formed just days or weeks before making six- or ­seven-figure contributions — an arrangement that election law experts say violates a long-standing federal ban on straw donors....

    After the GOP Debate ended, Drudge Report opened up its polls to get the consensus on who people think won the 12th Republican Debate. However, it has been reported that the poll was hacked and the numbers on Senator Ted Cruz were just generated by a bot.

The report allegedly had more than 44,000 users in favor of Ted Cruz, while only 140 users voted for Donald Trump. Overall, 99.65 percent users...

    An Israeli-Arab was attacked by a lynch mob on Thursday in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Beit Hanina. His offense? Speaking Hebrew. Muhammad Abed Abu Rahman, a 24-year-old resident of the Israeli Arab town of Abu Ghosh near Jerusalem, recalled a harrowing experience in the capital on Thursday while driving through an Arab neighborhood. While speaking on the phone in Hebrew, locals surrounded his car and began threatening him for “daring” to speak Hebrew near the home of Abu Khder, the 16-year-old murdered in a revenge attack following the killings of three abducted Israeli teens in 2014. “Someone came up to...

Biden's staff denied the report, but a Biden super PAC aired its first ad on network...
