    Ted Cruz Sent "Voter Shaming Letter" To Iowa Professor of Political Science and the recipient eviscerates Cruz's campaign claim in an article via the New Yorker: One of the targeted voters of Ted Cruz's campaign shaming letters is a political scientist in Iowa. He was none to happy with the message, or the data of himself and his neighbors. In Iowa, although voter registration information is free and available to the public, voter history is not. That information is maintained by the secretary of state, which licenses it to campaigns, super PACs, polling firms, and any other entity that might...

    Ted Cruz helps his daughter with her math homework. He makes time for tea with his elderly mother. He remembers birthdays, brings his wife flowers, packs her suitcase even when he‘s tired. Humanizing the candidate is supposed to be a campaign‘s building block, not its closing argument. But with just days until voting begins in the presidential race, Cruz is suddenly under siege. So the Texas Senator trotted out a special surrogate Friday to squash the storylines that may be blunting his momentum. Without Trump onstage Thursday night, Cruz had his worst debate of the cycle. On Friday, he awoke...

    President Obama on Wednesday said movies will be better if they represent everyone's stories, for the first time weighing in on the lack of black nominees at the Oscars. "I think that California is an example of the incredible diversity of this country," Obama said during a series of interviews with local news stations. "That's a strength. I think that when everyone's story is told then that makes for better art." "It makes for better entertainment it makes everybody feel part of one American family, so I think as a whole the industry should do what every other industry should...

    Senator Ted Cruz seems to express disgust and outrage against the tactics deployed by what he calls the “DC Machine”. Cruz states that their conduct in the Mississippi runoff was "incredibly disappointing" etc. However, we now know - from specific documentation provided by internal research into the activity around the Mississippi campaign - that the National Republican Senatorial Campaign, the NRSC, was the financier for the attack ads against Chris McDaniel. So who is the "DC Machine", this "leadership of the NRSC", that Senator Ted Cruz is so incredibly disappointed in? Whoopsie - Yes it would appear that Ted Cruz...

    I called it a coming attack in the headline but maybe it’s already here. I noticed Cruz attacking Trump as a fake conservative over the weekend but didn’t notice him drilling down on Trump as a fake populist. Did I miss it? If it hasn’t happened yet, don’t worry. It will soon. What got me thinking about this was Stephanopoulos asking Trump at the start of the clip I posted earlier whether it’s now a two-man race between him and Cruz. Trump’s answer: No, which is surprising given that he had talked about a developing two-man race less than a...

    When Pope Francis was elected, I was entirely positive about the new pontificate, focusing in my commentary on the new Pope’s apparent devotion to the Blessed Virgin and his respect for the Fatima event, as shown by his request to the Patriarch of Portugal to consecrate his entire pontificate to Our Lady of Fatima. But I confess that at the time I knew next to nothing about the former Cardinal Mario Bergoglio. I did not know, for example, that he was “famous for his inconsistency.” After two-and-a-half years of experience with this pontificate, however, I was not the least surprised...

    One number was more than double the real one. Local officials from China's key Northeast region have reportedly admitted that they faked economic data over the past few years when the real numbers were much lower. Several officials have said they've significantly overstated data ranging from fiscal revenue and household income to GDP, and that this was a reason why the drop in the figures appears to have been so dramatic this year, reported China Daily while citing further reports from China's state-run Xinhua News Agency. "If the past data had not been inflated, the current growth figures would not...

    Washington, DC — President Barack Obama held a press conference today to announce his decision which will make the month of December ‘National Muslim Appreciation Month’. “The Muslim community deserves our full acceptance and respect,” Obama told reporters. “We have disrespected these innocent and peaceful people in so many ways. We have killed millions of Muslims overseas since the September 11th attacks. They are not all bad. In fact most of them are good. So from now on, December will be a month to celebrate the Muslim people, the Sunnah and the Quran.”

This is is tyranny. His illegally seized power cannot usurp our first amendment and the rights of the freedom of the press.

    Sophie Cruz's encounter with the pope during a parade in Washington this week looked to be one of those spontaneous, once-in-a-lifetime-moments Francis has become known for. But for 5-year-old Sophie, the chance to wrap her arm around the pope's neck as he offered a hug, kiss and a blessing unfolded as perfectly as it was scripted by members of a coalition of Los Angeles-based immigration rights groups. For nearly a year the group had been preparing the young girl from suburban Los Angeles to make a dash for the popemobile to deliver a message about the plight of immigrant parents...

While Pope Francis paraded on his popemobile toward the National Mall in Washington, D.C., Sept. 23, Cruz, 5, jumped a security barrier and was soon stopped by security agents.

The report, which outlets including The Daily Caller News Foundation reported at face value, claimed to expose a secret memo. It purportedly described Russian government compensation to the families of 2,000 soldiers who had died in Ukraines civil war. The story, which Forbes first broke in English, understandably attracted significant Western media attention and was promoted online by several prominent figures, including former Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt and ex-U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul.

The Delta man eventually acknowledged faking the harassment, Dekker said. Brett Tolman, an attorney for Jones, said the reports were a cry for help initially directed toward people close to him, and Jones didn't realize how much attention they would get.

    It was revealed today that Hillary's server was cleaned and I started wondering more and more about 9-11-12. We still do not know where she, Obama, the CIA Director, or the Secretary of Defense were during the "riot". We still do not know who really gave the stand-down order that resulted in the deaths of Woods and Doherty. And we don't know how Chris Stevens really died and if he was sexually assaulted. Which has led me to a question--Could his family have asked to see the body?

    It turns out that the person who has been posting "whites only" stickers around Austin, Texas is actually a liberal "social justice warrior" looking to bring attention to the racism of whites. These stickers had been posted around stores in Austin: For days no one knew who had posted them and why could only be speculated. The answer has been solved today: the stickers were posted by Austin lawyer Adam Reposa who did it to point out the "gentrification" of Austin and the displacement of minorities. Theyre getting pushed out, and pretty quick. This area of town is turning into...

    WASHINGTON Stung by accusations that it cannot adequately protect the White House, the Secret Service wants to spend $8 million to build another White House in Beltsville, Md. In prepared testimony before the House Appropriations Committee, Joseph P. Clancy, the director of the Secret Service, on Tuesday will urge lawmakers to give him money to build a detailed replica of the White House to aid in training officers and agents to protect the real thing. Beltsville, about 20 miles from the real White House at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, is the site of a 500-acre Secret Service training site in...

    The recent cave in by Speaker Boehner in funding Obama's amnesty executive order has brought attention to a PAC that calls itself the ''American Action Network'' and claims to be ''center right''. The PAC is headed by moderate liberal former GOP establishment US Senator Norm Coleman and run by a board consisting of close allies of John Boehner and Mitch McConnell. It had been involved in the GOP primary in NC's 7th Congressional District last year, where it ran some particularly nasty and dishonest attack ads against the more conservative primary candidate, former State Senator Woody White. With Boehner's cave...

    Her bizarre New Age views on topics such as reincarnation and UFOs have often left the public baffled. Now Shirley MacLaine has provoked widespread fury by claiming the victims of the Holocaust may have brought their fate upon themselves. The veteran Hollywood actress suggests the six million Jews and millions of others systematically murdered in Hitlers death camps in the 1940s were balancing their karma for crimes committed in past lives. She also suggests that cosmologist Professor Stephen Hawking may have subconsciously given himself his debilitating motor neurone disease.
