  • Many experienced GOP strategists unwilling to work for Trump (Some of Cruz's Crew)

    Washington Post ^ | June 25, 2016 | Steve Peoples
    WASHINGTON — Donald Trump has finally acknowledged that to best compete against Hillary Clinton he needs more than the bare-bones campaign team that led him to primary success. But many of the most experienced Republican political advisers aren’t willing to work for him. (Snip) While there are exceptions, many strategists who best understand the mechanics of presidential politics fear that taking a Trump paycheck might stain their resumes, spook other clients and even cause problems at home. They also are reluctant to devote months to a divisive candidate whose campaign has been plagued by infighting and disorganization. “Right now I...
  • Top Trump policy adviser was a 'controversial figure' for college writings

    In recent weeks, after a series of failures to pick up delegates and embarrassing distractions arising from the behavior of his top campaign aide, Donald Trump has attempted to restructure his senior campaign team. But Trump's senior policy adviser, Stephen Miller, may be bringing his own baggage to Trump Tower, in the form of more than two dozen columns he wrote for his college newspaper a decade ago. Miller, who attended Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, has been a member of the billionaire Republican frontrunner's team since January, when he left the office of Alabama senator Jeff Sessions to...

    Newsmax ^ | 24-June-2016 | David A. Patten
    Watch any of the TV news talk shows Friday and almost all have ignored one important fact: the Brexit 'Leave' victory was another humiliating loss for President Barack Obama. In fact, some British polls even showed that voter sentiment moved decidedly in favor of Brexit after Obama traveled to Britain and urged a "no" vote. British voters delivered a stinging rebuke to Obama on Thursday when they opted to leave the EU by a 52 percent to 48 percent margin. So strong was the backlash to Obama's blatant attempt to influence the Brexit vote – polls following his April visit...
  • REFUGEES SENDING 'SUITCASES OF WELFARE CASH' HOME TO SOMALIA

    WND ^ | May 18 2016 | LEO HOHMANN
    Men and women pulling “suitcases full of cash” started showing up at Seattle’s Sea-Tac Airport last year holding tickets for international flights bound for Africa. Transporting large amounts of cash overseas is perfectly legal. But it was who was carrying the money … and where it was going that caught the attention of law enforcement, according to a report by KING 5, the local NBC affiliate for western Washington. Those hauling the cash-laden cases were Somali-Americans who’d come to this country as refugees. They routinely send money back to Somalia. And many of the greenbacks headed to the jihadist-infested East...
  • A Born-Again Donald Trump? Believe It, Evangelical Leader Says

    The New York Times ^ | 6/25/16 | TRIP GABRIEL and MICHAEL LUO
    Has Donald J. Trump become a born-again Christian? That is the suggestion of James C. Dobson, one of America’s leading evangelicals, who said Mr. Trump had recently come “to accept a relationship with Christ” and was now “a baby Christian.” Dr. Dobson, the founder of Focus on the Family and one of the country’s most prominent social conservatives, gave his account at a meeting Mr. Trump had in New York on Tuesday with hundreds of Christian conservatives. In an interview recorded at the event by a Pennsylvania pastor, the Rev. Michael Anthony, Dr. Dobson said he knew the person who...

    New York Post ^ | 06/25/2016 | Michael Walsh
    To hear the media tell it, Donald Trump was finished last week. For calling a first-generation judge of Mexican heritage a “Mexican,” he had injected racism into the campaign. For firing his strong-arm campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, he admitted his insurgency was adrift. For not raising as much cash as a woman who’s effectively been running for president since 1992, he was a hopeless, incompetent amateur. And, oh yes — he was down in the polls. In sum, for not playing by the rules laid down by consultants and political journalists, Trump was derailed, wrecked, finished. And then things changed....

    They shouldn't have tried to scare us. It is a sign of how little the Remainers understand or know about Britain, and above all about England, that they thought would work. I do sometimes wonder if these odd denaturated shiny types, who actively prefer foreign rule to their own, ever visit their own country. Confined to multicultural London neighbourhoods for most of the year, they then hurry abroad....... The Remainers' snobbery was their own undoing. They believed they were superior to their fellow countrymen and women, when they just luckier and richer. Judging from their response to the referendum result,...
  • More Polling Tricks=> New Reuters Poll EXTREMELY SKEWED – Reality Shows Trump Tied Up with Hillary

    Reuters interviews 1201 respondents. 626 Democrats (52% of total) 423 Republicans (35% of total) 122 independents 30 other party. That’s nearly 33 percent more Democrats than Republicans. In reality Gallup reported in March that 46 percent of Americans are Democrats, and 40 percent are Republicans. Reuters freighted their poll with 20 percent more Democrats than Republicans. Since the Reuters poll sampled more Democrats than all the others combined, we can safely say that Trump appears to be in much better shape than the poll suggests and could likely be headed to a landslide victory in November.

    The economic story of the past quarter-century was the rapid advance of globalization, the unleashing of trade and commerce among countries rich and poor - a McDonald’s in every European capital, “Made in China” labels throughout Toys R Us. The Brexit vote on Thursday ends that story, at least in its current volume. Voters will soon tell us what sort of sequel they’d prefer. A slowdown in trade growth has already gripped the globe over the past several years, according to data from the World Trade Organization. Prospects now look bleak for completion of major new trade agreements, including the...

    Until recently the progressive mind has been resolutely closed and stubbornly frozen in place against all things Trump. But cracks are appearing in the ice. With increasing frequency over the last few months some of the most thoughtful left and progressive figures have begun to speak favorably of aspects of Trump's foreign policy. Let us hear from these heretics, among them William Greider, Glen Ford, John Pilger,Jean Bricmont, Stephen F. Cohen and William Blum. Their words are not to be construed as "endorsements," but rather an acknowledgement of Trump's anti-interventionist views, the impact those views are having and the alternative...

While I maintain many of my original reservations, after Tuesday’s meeting, and as I told CBN News in an interview immediately following the event, I can now count myself among other Christian leaders in attendance who have moved from the “Never Trump” camp, to the...

    Paul Krugman may understand the Democratic Party better than most Democrats do. The New York Times editorial writer describes Democrats as a “coalition of social groups, from teachers’ unions to Planned Parenthood, seeking specific benefits from government action.” More often than not, what these groups want from government is at someone else’s expense.That isn’t just a characteristic of the party. That’s what the Democratic Party is.There are also groups that support Republicans: gun owners, small business owners, evangelicals, etc. But Republican groups tend to not want anything from government. More often than not they just want to be left alone....

    Donald Trump welcomed Rupert Murdoch and his wife Jerry Hall for dinner at his luxurious golf course in northeast Scotland on Saturday, the final event of a two-day tour of his properties there. Murdoch, 80, arrived at around 5:15 with wife Jerry Hall, 59, a former model who was previously married to Rolling Stone rocker Mick Jagger. The pair rode up the road to the clubhouse in an SUV with Trump himself. The MacLeod House, a restored 15th Century mansion on the grounds of the Trump International Golf Links Scotland, was the site of the meal. After a visit to...

Instead, he offered up Democrats' presumptive presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, as the country's best alternative to Trump, encouraging his GOP colleagues to consider her when casting their ballot.

    A petition calling for a second EU referendum has topped TWO MILLION signatures - more than doubling the highest signed in parliamentary history. The popular petition, which was started just one day ago, attracted so many signatures when it first opened that the government's website crashed. The enormous surge followed the initial 100,000 signatures which were created in a bid to get London Mayor Sadiq Khan to declare the capital as independent. Protesters are hoping that Khan will call for London to be classed separately from the UK and therefore be able to apply to join the European Union.

    It’s not only illegal aliens who are escaping enforcement of the nation’s immigration laws. Under the Obama administration’s expansive interpretation of executive authority, legal immigrants seeking citizenship through the nation’s Naturalization process are now exempt from a key part of the Oath of Allegiance. Immigrants seeking to become citizens no longer have to pledge to “bear arms on behalf of the United States.” They can opt out of that part of the Oath. Nor do they have to cite any specific religious belief that forbids them to perform military service. ----------------------------------------------- This radical change was announced a year ago, in...

But that charter has become part of an important, iconic, political myth that the deal between an unpopular king and rebellious barons marked the beginning of individual English freedoms, personal liberties, and due-process protection of individuals under the law. Magna Carta has also been cited as providing the essential foundation for the contemporary powers of Parliament and legal principles such as habeas corpus.

    Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) called it "outrageous" that House Democrats would grab microphones and prevent fellow lawmakers from conducting business in violation of House rules, all to make a point about gun control, which is really beside the point, he said: "And when people go on for 12 hours, saying things, 'It's about guns,' then that means Boston was about a pressure cooker. It wasn't. Both of them were about radical Islam," Gohmert told Fox News's Charles Payne. "And the reason people died unnecessarily is because this FBI, this Justice Department, this Homeland Security has purged their training materials, so...

    The original Magna Carta was a charter agreed to by King John of England in 1215. It just celebrated its 801st anniversary. So no, I wasn’t there. But that charter has become part of an important, iconic, political myth that the deal between an unpopular king and rebellious barons marked the beginning of individual English freedoms, personal liberties, and due-process protection of individuals under the law. Magna Carta has also been cited as providing the essential foundation for the contemporary powers of Parliament and legal principles such as habeas corpus. That’s the mythology, and it’s an important one. So while...

    Donald Trump is campaigning like it’s 1884. That’s a good thing. His speech on Wednesday sliced open new wounds in the Clinton campaign. He has spent weeks calling Hillary Clinton “Crooked Hillary,” but for the first time since the mid-1990s, someone went after the Clintons for their cronyism and corruption. This is only the beginning, and if Trump were smart—he has proven to be adept at finding the oppositions weak points and relentlessly pulverizing them—he would adopt the 1884 playbook from the Democratic Party and call himself “Donald the Good”, with a pledge to clean up corruption in Washington, D.C....

    It’s not surprising that Donald Trump has been riding the Brexit bandwagon. In the days before Thursday’s referendum on Britain’s continued membership in the European Union – the results of which have been roiling global markets since the “leave” camp pulled a stunning victory – Trump had been saying that he would vote to leave. He’s not British, so he couldn’t – but that didn’t stop him from claiming his piece of the victory. On Friday, during a visit to Scotland to inaugurate a newly renovated golf course at the Trump Turnberry Resort, he took to his favorite medium to...

    If Donald Trump beats Hillary Clinton, it’ll be because he speaks directly to the voters — without the poll-driven, focus-grouped blandifying filter Hillary never leaves home without. The contrast was there again Wednesday. •He delivered a thumping speech full of applause lines that spoke directly to what regular Americans see as the nation’s problems. Lines like: “We will never be able to fix a rigged system by counting on the same people who rigged it in the first place.” And: “We reward companies for offshoring, and we punish companies for doing business in America and keeping our workers employed. This...

    Washington (CNN)A group of Republicans pushing for delegates to be able to vote for and nominate someone other than Donald Trump at the convention this July is going up with a television ad nationally this weekend, the first such foray into TV. The ad from Delegates Unbound, shared first with CNN, splices together clips of Republican icon President Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump. In one such juxtaposition, Reagan says, "Use of force is always and only a last resort," while Trump says "I would bomb the s--- out of them," a statement he made referring to ISIS.
