  • Sen. Joni Ernst makes one list as a possible VP for Donald Trump

    KYIV.com ^ | 30 Apr 2016
    The Washington Post published an article listing five candidates likely to be considered to be Trump's vice president. U.S. Senator Joni Ernst of Iowa is on that list. Ernst is Iowa's first female U.S. Senator. Ernst was not well known When she ran for the senate seat vacated by the retiring Tom Harkin. KWWL-TV caught up with Ernst and asked if she would consider serving as Donald Trump's vice president. "I would say, 'did my mother pay you to say that?', Ernst said. "But, no. I would have to consider it, but I love what I do in the United...

    The Hill ^ | 4/30/16 | Christina Marcos
    Female Republican lawmakers are making the case for Donald Trump to choose a woman as his running mate. Picking a female vice presidential candidate could help mitigate the damage Trump caused with women voters in the primary, they say, as well as counter Hillary Clinton if she is the Democratic nominee. Rep. Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo.) offered the idea, somewhat unprompted, at a Capitol Hill event hosted by the Heritage Foundation this week. When a reporter asked a panel of conservative House Republicans who Trump should choose as his running mate, most lawmakers demurred. But Lummis, the only woman on the...

    Washington Post ^ | 4/29 | Chris Cilliza
    Which begs the question: Who is he going to pick as his vice presidential nominee? The short answer: No one knows. Trump relishes being unpredictable so trying to game out how this most unconventional of politicians will make his mind up is a bit of a guessing game. Add to that the fact that Trump's inner circle remains, largely, devoid of establishment types and you quickly get into a situation where the people talking don't know much and the people who do know aren't talking.

    For the past month, a media narrative has taken hold that something must be done to reform, simplify, streamline, and democratize the delegate selection system of the Republican presidential nomination process. Is our GOP presidential primary system rigged, meaning it is corrupt because it favors the establishment? Is it convoluted, arbitrary, arcane...and too often "voteless"? Is it wrong to allow "Trojan horse" delegates to change their vote on the second ballot of the national convention? Why do we have a separate election for delegates after we vote for candidates? The system is not rigged, convoluted, arbitrary, arcane, or voteless. It...

    Pro-abortion legislators in Iowa narrowly managed to kill a measure on Friday that would have stopped tax dollars from going to the abortion industry. [Iowa state] Senator Ken Rozenbooms amendment to defund the abortion industry failed today on a tie vote, Jenifer Bowen, executive director of Iowa Right to Life, said in an email. We had bipartisan support, but needed one more vote. The defunding measure was part of a health and human services budget bill, which passed the Iowa House earlier this week. The state Senate removed the language to stop tax dollars from going to abortion groups like...

    There are several resident status classifications in the United States: natural born citizen, naturalized citizen, diplomatic immunity, temporary resident (on a visa), lawful permanent resident (green card holder), and illegal alien. Ted Cruz isn't the child of diplomats, and he was never naturalized as a citizen. So either he is an illegal alien or a natural born citizen. There is no middle ground. If you don't believe he is a natural born citizen, then you believe there is an illegal alien serving in the U.S. Senate. There is no middle ground. You should immediately call for his deportation.

Along with other farmers in this vast agricultural region, he has upped his vigilance ever since Mo Hailong and six other Chinese nationals were accused by U.S. authorities in 2013 of digging up seeds from Iowa farms and planning to send them back to China. The case, in which Mo pleaded guilty in January, has laid bare the value -- and vulnerability -- of advanced...

Two days after the Panthers sunk that miracle buzzer-beater from half-court, Northern Iowa got sunk by the greatest-slash-most-horrifying comeback in the history of March Madness and probably in the history of college basketball.

Legislators in several other states have proposed similar legislation. The bill would ban the trafficking and sale of aborted babies body parts, but it would allow women to donate tissue from stillborn or miscarried babies, as well as umbilical cord blood, placenta and amniotic...

The sentence also calls for three years of supervision after release and a $60,000 fine. During the hearing the judge repeatedly scolded Aossey for committing perjury during his trial in court last year. Aosseys conviction originally called for a 9 to11 year sentence. The judge cut the sentence due to Aosseys age of 74 and the unlikeliness that he would commit another offense. Aossey was convicted by a...

But with less than three weeks to go until the GOP caucus, Cruz now has real reason to worry. The latest sign Iowa could come down to the wire between him and Donald Trump comes via a new Des Moines Register/Bloomberg state poll, which shows the fiery Texas senator's lead on the loud-mouthed tycoon shrinking from 10 points to 3...

The Nevada Republican Party reported Wednesday morning that more than 75,000 voters participated in the contest.

Hatch is one of the highest ranking Republicans in Congress, and he is third in the line of the succession to the U.S. presidency as president pro tempore of the United States Senate. The six-term senator had previously endorsed Jeb Bush and sought the Republican presidential nomination in 2000. Hatch's endorsement could be interpreted as a sign of the party's governing class rallying to Rubio.

    Following Donald Trump’s victory in the South Carolina GOP primary, talk radio host Glenn Beck urged his Facebook followers to join him and his family “in a fast for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), our country and the Nevada caucus.” “I would like to ask you to join me and my family Monday in a fast for Ted Cruz, our country and the Nevada caucus,” Beck wrote on his Facebook page after the South Carolina election results showed a decisive double-digit victory for Trump, whose candidacy Beck has been staunchly opposed to.

    I had a look at Liz Mair's twitter. She's the idiot that wanted Scott Walker to run a suicidal open borders campaign. Then they parted ways. This was the story that broke it all. http://www.mofopolitics.com/2015/02/01/scott-walker-once-employed-liberal-feminazi-liz-mair/ Why is The Mair of RINO feminazis retweeting this creep? I though the Trump-hater consultant types were sick of Trump's crude attacks on people. I assume Liz Mair is following this guy on twitter. Wilson said nasty things about Ann Coulter. He also threatened certain things about Trump. https://twitter.com/lizmair https://twitter.com/TheRickWilson/status/701226786793910274 Liz Mair Retweeted Rick Wilson ‏@TheRickWilson 7h7 hours ago Also, @jebbush could never ask for...

    In a twist on the typically shadowy world of super PACS, a new anti-Donald Trump group is openly seeking donations for an ad that would flog the New York businessman for drawing and accepting praise from Russian President Vladimir Putin. Make America Awesome is also offering to pay commissions to people who bring in big donors. The size of the commissions is not disclosed in the appeal circulated early Friday by Republican operative Liz Mair, and she did not immediately respond to a request for details.

    Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump took on the press and his most recently vanquished opponent at a rally in Grand Rapids, Michigan Monday night, telling the crowd he hates the press, but would never kill them like Russian President Vladimir Putin has been accused. Trump said again that he was not offended that Putin praised him, even though he has been accused of killing journalists. "I don't like that. I'm totally against that," Trump said. "By the way, I hate some of these people but I'd never kill them." He pretended to reconsider, saying , "Let's see. No, I wouldn't....

    A Republican operative who is organizing an effort to torpedo Donald Trump’s presidential campaign says she is starting a super PAC that could collect unlimited funds from individual donors.

The anti-Trump effort is focusing on the two states hosting the earliest nominating contests, Iowa and New Hampshire. In an e-mail to supporters, Ms. Mair said the group has reached out to 150 churches in Iowa, 50 community leaders in New Hampshire and media outlets in both states. She...
