  • Ward Clobbers McCain in AZGOP Straw Poll

    05/05/2016 5:50:52 AM PDT · by mac_truck · 36 replies
    Kelli Ward Campaign ^ | 5/4/2016 | Press Release
    Dr. Kelli Ward clobbered 30 year incumbent John McCain 75% to 11% in the straw poll sponsored by the Maricopa County Young Republican Professionals at Saturday’s Arizona Republican State Convention. The poll was not paid for or conducted in coordination with any campaign. McCain has previously been censured by the Arizona Republican Party for abandoning conservative values and being “eerily silent against Liberals,” while publicly reprimanding conservatives in his own party. After 34 years, Arizona Republicans can see right through his six year cycle of campaign conservatism. They’ve had enough of his broken promises and the constant compromise and capitulation...

    Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said Wednesday that he was open to raising the federal minimum wage, breaking with the prevailing view of his party. “I’m actually looking at that because I am very different from most Republicans,” Mr. Trump said in an interview on CNN’s. “You have to have something that you can live on.”

    Frontpagemagazine ^ | May 5, 2016 | Bruce Thornton
    Why the presumptive Republican presidential nominee may defy the conventional wisdom once again. After the departure of Ted Cruz and John Kasich, Donald Trump is now the Republican candidate for president. For many in the party, this will be the “Trumpacolypse,” as a Twitter hashtag has it. His unfavorable ratings are at 65%––70% with women, and up to 80% with blacks and Hispanics. With those numbers, a Clinton victory is assured, according to three-quarters of Republican “political insiders” polled by Politico. Such hysteria six months out from the general election is premature. Much of it reflects the Republican political class’s...

    - The jury has begun deliberations in the murder trial of accused "Grim Sleeper" serial killer Lonnie Franklin, even as new information was disclosed Wednesday about the defendant's record out of the jury's presence. In a hearing held while the jury was behind closed doors, prosecutor Beth Silverman disclosed that Franklin has a conviction for a sex crime outside the United States on his record - a gang rape in Germany when he was in the Army. Silverman told the court that Franklin and two friends borrowed a car, drove to a nearby village, dragged a woman to the car...

    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Wednesday warned that Donald Trump is a “loose cannon” and said the United States should not take a risk on an unreliable candidate, according to Reuters. "He is a loose cannon, and loose cannons tend to misfire," she said in an interview with CNN, citing Trump stances including a claim that climate change was a Chinese hoax. The comments came as Trump appears to be the Republican presidential nominee, especially after his opponents Ted Cruz and John Kasich both stepped down following Trump’s victory in the Indiana primary. Clinton said in the interview that...

President Joko Widodo’s administration has pledged to resume executions by firing squad at a prison on Nusakambangan Island, despite criticism from rights groups and foreign governments. “We have had a warning since last month to prepare the place,” said Central Java provincial police spokesman Aloysius Lilik Darmanto.

    Today the Obama Justice Department warned North Carolina state officials that their state stands to lose millions of dollars in federal funds unless they change a measure limiting access to bathrooms for transgender people. In a letter to Gov. Pat McCrory, DOJ contends that they and North Carolina would be in violation of federal civil rights law if the bill passes. According to the Justice Department, the state law violates federal law under Title VII of the U.S. Civil Rights Act, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex. The Obama administration says that with the passage of House Bill...

    Well, so much for suspense. The networks called Indiana for Donald Trump about five seconds after the polls closed, and within two hours Ted Cruz announced he was suspending his campaign. Trump is winning a majority of the vote and will likely win all 57 delegates. Even if a few delegates stray back across the line, this win clinched the nomination for Trump. He will now have well over 1,000 bound delegates, which is less than 200 from what he needs to make it a lock. And that's without the unbound delegates he definitely has in Pennsylvania and is sure...

    The Justice Department’s Office of Justice Programs is eschewing the terms “felon” and “convict” when officials refer to individuals convicted of crimes, opting instead for less “disparaging labels,” Assistant Attorney General Karol Mason announced Wednesday. The Office of Justice Programs plans to substitute terminology such as “person who committed a crime” and “individual who was incarcerated” in speeches and other communications as part of an effort to remove barriers that officials say hinder progress of those who re-enter society after completing their prison sentences. “I have come to believe that we have a responsibility to reduce not only the physical...

    When the leader of Germany’s Jews spoke out against the flow of Muslim migrants to Europe, a rabbinical student denounced his views as racist — and ignited a debate over whether Jews are right to fear unprecedented levels of immigration from Muslim lands traditionally hostile to Israel. The student, Armin Langer, was kicked out of the Abraham Geiger College in Potsdam after he wrote that the leader of Germany’s Central Council of Jews was wrong to seek a cap on Muslim immigration. Langer, a founder of an inter-faith group called Salaam-Shalom committed to fostering dialogue between Muslims and Jews, said...

King Salman has made a habit of attending all his sons' graduation ceremonies, a sign of the importance the king places on education. Before the ardha (sword dance) ceremony, Prince Rakan presented a sword to his father, which caused the King to get emotional seeing his last son...

One of the leaders of the organization said that in return, Israel had undertaken upon itself not to conduct operations inside Gaza. Hamas leader Mousa Abu Marzouk, commenting on Facebook on the understandings, said they had been reached with Egyptian mediation. “What happened on the Gaza border was a Zionist attempt to apply a new reality on the border. This required Hamas to rise up in order to prevent the tools of the...

    There are mounting concerns about how the state processes food stamps. State workers say their bosses ordered them to falsify records, which left the poorest New Mexicans without the help they need. One state whistleblower who testified in federal court spoke with the 4 Investigates team about claims of a cover-up. Angela Dominguez works for the Human Services Department as a case processor for food stamps, and she and other case workers from all across the state say they were ordered to find ways to make emergency food stamp cases into non-emergencies. “Whatever it would take to not make the...

Particularly by the media,” she said to MSNBC’s Tamron Hall. “How many times has Hillary Clinton been asked about the specific role in Benghazi outside of the testimony?” Pierson asked.

James Mattis and press him into service yet again as a third-party candidate. Mattis is the former commander of Central Command, which includes the strife-afflicted conflict zones of the Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asia, and has developed a reputation among troops as a general...

    The historic Manhattan cathedral that was gutted in a massive fire was one of four Christian Orthodox churches to go up in flames on Orthodox Easter Sunday — sparking fears of a coordinated attack on the religion. While FDNY officials said the blaze at the Serbian Orthodox Cathedral of St. Sava on West 25th Street does not appear suspicious, members of the Orthodox community have doubts. They are worried that the blaze — along with church fires in Australia and Russia — were set in retaliation for the religion’s role in blocking the canonization of Croatian Nazi supporter Cardinal Aloysius...

    Statistician and FiveThirtyEight founder Nate Silver famously used “big data” and his mathematical models to predict all 50 state outcomes in the 2012 general election, somehow besting his mark of 49 during the 2008 cycle. The one he got wrong that year: Indiana, which went to Barack Obama by a 0.1 percent margin. For all the numbers and polls and graphs that likely passed Silver’s desk in the weeks prior to that November, the famed prognosticator needed only to focus on a 403-square mile plot of land along the road between Indianapolis and St. Louis. There, the roughly 108,000 citizens...

Kennedy. “His father was with Lee Harvey Oswald prior to Oswald’s being, you know, shot,” Trump told Fox News over the phone. “I mean, the whole thing is ridiculous.

A public Virginia university, GMU received a $30,000,000 pledge to rename the law school. However, the George Mason faculty senate -- which is not a law school body -- passed a resolution opposing the name change. The reasons the GMU faculty senate opposed the well-funded name change included the following: The memorializing of a Supreme Court Justice who was a significant contributor to the polarized climate in this country that runs counter to...

    Ted Cruz -- attempting to hold on to the narrowing possibility that he can wrest the GOP nomination away from front-runner Donald Trump -- faces a crucial Indiana primary on Tuesday. Meanwhile, and perhaps ominously for Cruz, he has run into headwinds among Republicans at the national level. His image has essentially nosedived over the past week or two, while Trump's image has become more positive. Republicans' views of Cruz are now the worst in Gallup's history of tracking the Texas senator. His image among Republicans and Republican-leaning independents is at 39% favorable and 45% unfavorable, based on April 24-30...

    Greenpeace charged on Monday that a massive US-EU trade deal would place corporate interests above the environment and consumer safety, as it released classified documents from the negotiations. […] Greenpeace said the papers show, for example, that the US wants to be able to scrap existing EU rules in areas such as food labeling or approval of dangerous chemicals if it they spell barriers to free trade. “TTIP is about a huge transfer of power from people to big business,” the group argued, having also projected an image of a classified text passage onto the façade of Berlin’s parliament building....

    Authorities have announced that customs investigators, along with the Israel Security Authority (ISA, also known as the Shin Bet or Shabak), recently prevented an attempt to smuggle four tons of ammonium chloride into Gaza. The chemical, which is used in the production of weapons, was hidden in bags of salt. Four tons would have allowed Hamas or other terror groups to create hundreds of long-range rockets. About a week before Passover, a shipment labeled as 40 tons of salt reached the Nitzana crossing, which is used for transporting goods between Egypt and both Israel and Gaza. An extensive search of...

    Colorado's six-time Olympic gold medal winning swimmer Amy Van Dyken-Rouen says agents with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) humiliated her. She took to social media Sunday to detail her experience getting through security at Denver International Airport. She said agents made her go through a full body search even though she has Pre check. "They go around your breasts, they basically go under your butt and the just grab things, not grab, they touch things that are not appropriate and it's really embarrassing," said Van Dyken-Rouen. Van Dyken-Rouen said as much as she and husband Tom travel all over the...

    There is something a bit unsettling about watching violent, foul-mouthed protesters waving the Mexican flag on American soil. Over the weekend, Hispanic children lined the streets in Fort Wayne, Indiana – hurling filthy insults at Donald Trump supporters. “F*** you,” the youngsters shouted as they flipped off passerby. “F*** you.” Video captured images of the angry protesters wearing sombreros and holding signs that read, “Brown Pride.”

    The Shooter's Log ^ | 4/27/2016 | Dave Dolbee
    There is no chance of burying the lead in this story. Hillary Clinton has vowed to support legislation to kill the gun industry. I am not here to advocate for one political party over another or one particular politician for President. The Shooter’s Log is about firearms, survival/prepping, hunting, etc. However, if you believe in the Second Amendment, hunting, and firearms, you really need to step up and pay attention to Hillary Clinton’s latest proclamation against your rights. Hillary is the Democratic frontrunner and in all likelihood going to be the Democratic Nominee. Recently, on her website, she proudly stated,...

    The radical Islamist organization Hizb ut-Tahrir, which has pursued an Islamic Caliphate since 1953, held a massive conference in Ramallah on Saturday, calling upon the armies of Jordan and Egypt to intervene directly and “free Palestine." Thousands participated in the event, which was billed as “Tent of Believers: the Caliphate Through the Path of the Prophet, and the Tent of Hypocrites, Heretics, and Imperialists." Black-and-white flags bearing the pledge of allegiance to Allah and Mohammed were waved while participants chanted slogans calling for the “liberation” of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem. “Officers and soldiers, break down the borders [of Israel],"...
