  • Mocking Critics, Donald Trump Says He Can Win Without Republican Unity

    New York Times ^ | April 29, 2016 | JONATHAN MARTIN and ADAM NAGOURNEY
    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...

    Some other FR posts are misrepresenting what Rick Perry said on The View on Wednesday. Here is the video. He endorsed Cruz at the 6:36 mark ("Listen, I'm for Ted Cruz") and says Cruz has a path to Victory. Later around the 10:30 mark, he says he will back Trump if it comes down to Hillary and Donald. He did not endorse Donald. Perry is a Conservative.
  • Battle of The Rallies: Massive Movement Trump vs Dyin’ Ted

    TruthFeed ^ | 4/29/2016 | Amy Moreno
    It was a battle of the rallies yesterday and if the crowds are any indication, Lyin’ Ted, and his pretend ticket are on life support. While Trump hosted a rowdy crowd of thirty-thousand Patriots yesterday in Costa Mesa, California, Ted and Carly were barely able to fill a small auditorium. The mainstream media won’t report on the low-turnout crowds for Cruz – which are getting smaller by the day. Meanwhile, Team Trump continues to grow and gain momentum with crowds averaging 15, 20 and 30k strong. As we head into the final leg of the GOP nomination race, it’s clear...

    Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, seems to be going all in on Indiana. With the state's primary just days away, Cruz declared in an interview with NBC's Chuck Todd, "The entire country is looking to Indiana. And I think the country is really depending on Indiana to choose the direction of this race." While stressing the importance of the Hoosier state, Cruz refused to say he would drop out of the race if he loses there Tuesday. "Indiana is an important state, we are competing hard," Cruz said. Cruz is behind in multiple polls out of Indiana, but he hopes to...

    Republican front-runner Donald Trump, campaigning in California following fresh primary victories, called for party unity during an address at the state’s GOP convention while protesters denounced him and clashed with police outside. At the lunchtime gathering, Mr. Trump said he was best positioned to beat Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton in a general election matchup. He said he would put into play New York, Florida, Michigan and Pennsylvania in November, states that have backed the Democratic nominee in most recent presidential elections. “The Republican Party, in a presidential sense, doesn’t win anymore,” Mr. Trump said. “You pick your standard cookie-cutters…I am...

    I give Clinton a 50% chance of making it to November with sufficiently good health to be considered a viable president. Judging from her performance on the campaign trail, she is managing her health effectively to get the job done. But I would think most people who run for president end up sacrificing their health in some measure. The big question is how much buffer she has left.

    Indiana Gov. Mike Pence opened up his big endorsement of Sen. Ted Cruz by praising Donald Trump at length in a radio interview. He told WIBC in Indianapolis that he "particularly" wanted "to commend Donald Trump, who I think has given voice to the frustration of millions of working Americans." Pence also voiced his pleasure with Trump's focus on Carrier, which has announced controversial plans to move many jobs in its Indiana plant to Mexico. The Indiana governor then announced his endorsement of Cruz.

    But it does revolve around the conceit that the 40th president had no knowledge of where he was or what he was doing throughout his entire second term. The protagonist is Frank Corden, a low-level White House aide with a sweetly idealized view of American democracy. The first clues that Reagan is not in his right mind come early on: As Frank prepares coffee for Reagan re-election staffers, he overhears Treasury Secretary Don Regan (depicted as a stern, mentor-like figure) in a heated phone conversation with Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger (cartoonishly abusive, he's described as "all Brylcreem and forehead...

    Donald Trump’s 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 party’s history. These collaborationists will render themselves ineligible to participate in the party’s reconstruction. Ted Cruz’s announcement of his preferred running mate has enhanced the nomination process by giving voters pertinent information. They already know the only important thing about Trump’s choice: His running mate will be unqualified for high office because he or she will think Trump is qualified. Hillary Clinton’s optimal running mate might be Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio,...

    Former Texas governor, Rick Perry denounced his colleague Ted Cruz and officially sided with Donald Trump. Perry appeared on ABC’s The View and shocked the country when he did not side with Cruz who hails from his state. Texas loyalty has helped the Cruz campaign for some time and this change is a massive defeat for Lyin’ Ted. At first, Perry seemed reluctant to fully praise Donald. He specified that some of Trump’s brash insults worry him and he wishes Donald could adopt a more “serious” tone. However, Trump’s positives clearly outweigh his occasional outbursts because Perry formally told reporters...

    Republican presidential candidate seeks help from governors and former rivals to stop Donald Trump in Indiana’s primary. Sen. Ted Cruz, in a last-ditch effort to derail Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump, is trying to marshal support from governors, former rivals and other anti-Trump Republicans in advance of the make-or-break primary in Indiana Tuesday. With polls showing him lagging behind the New York businessman in the Hoosier state, the Texas senator talked up the somewhat equivocal support he received from Indiana Gov. Mike Pence on Friday. Mr. Pence said on an Indianapolis talk-radio show that he would vote for Mr. Cruz...

    With Donald Trump's path to the nomination looking wider by the day, a number of top Republicans are signaling their willingness to support his candidacy — even some who have fiercely criticized him in the past. This softening opposition indicates that the GOP establishment is reaching the "acceptance stage" of the grieving process, even as Sen. Ted Cruz and his new running mate Carly Fiorina try to mount a last stand in Indiana. The shift reflects the intensity of loathing for Cruz among elements of the party as much as it does their begrudging acceptance of Trump.

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...

Boxer effectively used Fiorina’s HP tenure against her, criticizing the former CEO for laying off thousands at the California-based company and moving many jobs overseas.

    Indiana Gov. Mike Pence endorsed Ted Cruz Friday, just days before a primary that could make or break the Texas senator's chances of halting Donald Trump's march to the Republican presidential nomination. But Pence was quick to praise Trump, too, and encouraged Hoosier voters to "make up their own minds." "I'm not against anybody, but I will be voting for Ted Cruz in the Republican primary," Pence said in an interview with WIBC's Greg Garrison. He praised Cruz's "knowledge of the Constitution" and his willingness to "take on the leadership" of his own party.

    It has been over one month since advocates for the families of victims killed by illegal immigrants issued an open letter to the Republican presidential candidates. The letter seeks their support for a new program which would provide aid to the families suffering from the loss of their loved ones. So far, only one candidate has responded. Maria Espinoza, co-founder and director of the advocacy group, The Remembrance Project, tells Hannity.com that Donald Trump is the only candidate whose office has responded to their open letter and that the candidate will support a national program to assist families of victims...

  • Nancy Pelosi: Donald Trump is playing the joker's card

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Friday that Donald Trump might be playing "the joker's card" when he has said Hillary Clinton is playing "the woman's card" as a presidential candidate. "I don't know what card he is playing, I mean what, the joker's card? That doesn't even count in a deck of cards," Pelosi told reporters at her weekly press conference when asked to react to Trump's latest remarks. Pelosi said candidates for elected office shouldn't campaign on their gender. "It's not a winning message. The winning message is 'I think you should support me because I think I...
  • Don’t kill the candidate

    I would like to conclude my week of blogging with a call to action. If no candidate wins a majority in the electoral college, the House of Representatives will choose our next president in a “contingent election,” from among the top three candidates. This is a much less remote possibility than usual this year. As I explained on Monday, there is no way to replace a candidate who dies in a contingent election. This would disenfranchise an entire side of the election, so it provides an unfortunately heightened incentive for assassins. We don’t award assassins this prize at any other...

    Thursday on Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show,” Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Judith Miller said Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is so disliked in the Senate,” because “he was not a man of his word,” and would “stab you in the back.” Miller said, “Cruz was so disliked in the Senate, and Boehner was a charter member of that club. So, you could just see the politicians hated Cruz for reasons, by the way, that still have yet to be fully reported.”
