    In March, Ted Cruz called John Kasich a spoiler and said his remaining in the race just doesnt make sense. When asked why hes Kasich is staying in, Cruz suggested he may be auditioning to be Trumps Vice President. If you look at where the field is now there are only two of us that can get to 1,237. Now on my end as you noted I need about 80%. Now that sounds like a high threshold but its actually not nearly as daunting as it sounds Were seeing Republicans uniting behind our campaign We are seeing Republicans uniting behind...

    Document Release Raises New Questions about States FOIA Responses, Court Statements(Washington, DC) Judicial Watch announced today it has obtained new documents from the Department of State containing the telephone transcripts from the evening of September 11, 2012, in which then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton informs then-Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Kandil that the deadly terrorist attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi had nothing to do with the film. The documents include previously unreleased telephone transcripts with world leaders about the Benghazi attack.

    Ah, I remember that speech well. It was high-five material on conservative blogs for days, back when Cruz was still a populist hero to Trump fans rather than “Lyin’ Ted.” He delivered it last July, a month after Trump declared his candidacy, with the Trump/Cruz bromance still in full flower. Cruz was eager to impress Trump’s supporters in the belief that they’d soon stampede towards him as Trump inevitably collapsed in the polls. Fast-forward eight months and here we are: Sixty-three percent of Trump’s supporters say that if he earns more delegates than the other candidates but does not become...

    Hillary Clintons claim that Vermont is a key culprit in New York gun crime is misleading at best, federal data show, and even some of Clintons own supporters Tuesday turned on the former first lady and said her argument doesnt hold water. Mrs. Clinton made the charge Monday night at a roundtable discussion on gun violence in New York and used it as ammunition in making the case her primary opponent, Sen. Bernard Sanders of Vermont, is far too weak on gun laws. She cited ATF figures showing that, when adjusting for population, more guns from Vermont were found at...

They charge us more to do our blouses than guys shirts. We women are tired of being taken to the cleaners. Pass Paycheck Fairness, Mikulski said.

    In a mass e-mail sent out to supporters by the Democrat Party, Obama admits for the first time that he lied to voters repeatedly about his views on marriage. In fact, if his latest claims are to be believed, Obama has actually been lying to voters for decades, going all the way back to when he launched his political career in the home of Castro-backed communist terrorist Bill Ayers. Despite proudly lying to voters all those years when he claimed to believe in the sacredness of what is today called traditional marriage, Obama admitted that one of the reasons he...

I would rather pick somebody from the phone book. In case the US did not get the message, Craig Mazin now a scriptwriter...

Subzero readings were even observed near the Canadian border in northern Michigan, northern New York and northern Maine Tuesday morning. More record cold is possible on Wednesday morning in the Northeast. Then the cold will become more expansive late this week due to yet another southward dip in the jet stream which will allow more arctic air to push south from Canada.

President Obama has been consistently criticized for a 2014 comment to the New Yorker magazine that the Islamic State, as it invaded Iraq from Syria, was merely the jayvee. In other words, it was not to be taken seriously. Months later, the terror army controlled large swaths of Iraq and Syria, forcing Mr. Obama to ordered a new war.

    For years, conservatives have told themselves the pretty bedtime story that they represent a silent majority in America -- that most Americans want smaller government, individual rights and personal responsibility. We've suggested that if only we nominated precisely the right guy who says the right words -- some illegally grown Ronald Reagan clone, perhaps -- we'd win. Donald Trump's impending nomination puts all of that to bed. There can be no doubt: The Republican Party has successful killed the legacy of Ronald Reagan. By consistently moving to the left in every presidential election, by granting the left its general premise...

Speaking to reporters at a local Republican dinner outside Chicago, where Mr. Trump had just canceled a rally amid fierce confrontations between his supporters and protesters, Mr. Cruz began by saying that the protesters who took violence into their own hands were responsible for the episode. But in any campaign, responsibility starts at the top, Mr. Cruz continued. And when you have a campaign that disrespects the voters, when you have a campaign that affirmatively encourages...

Politico speculated that the choice is part of a Wall Street campaign to stop Donald Trump.  Merco Press claimed the choice "shows just how willing Rubio is to risk voter backlash in order to continue raising money for his campaign march."

    There are some things to like about Trump. But, it looks to me like these are the possible outcomes with this guy: 1. He is truly a conservative leader, i.e. will appoint truly conservative judges, will stand against abortion and Planned Parenthood, against gay marriage (and for religious liberty), against any form of federally mandated healthcare, will balance the budget, and will defend the Constitution in total--and he will be elected President. 2. He is truly a conservative, but will lose to Hillary--primarily because his negatives are so SKY HIGH that millions will absolutely NEVER vote for Trump, including an...

Current and former intelligence officials say it is standard practice to suspend a clearance pending the outcome of an investigation. Yet in the case of Cheryl Mills, Clinton's former chief of staff at the State Department, two letters indicate this practice is not being followed - even as the Clinton email system remains the subject of an FBI investigation....

    We believe Clinton is the clear choice over Sanders for heart and head alike. A force on the national landscape for more than 30 years, Clinton has distinguished herself in foreign and domestic policy in ways that make her well-suited to represent the party in November. President Obama has said his biggest regret was his inability to breach the divide between Democrats and Republicans. The next president must demonstrate some capacity for working with opponents, for seeking reasonable compromise, while remaining committed to a firm set of values. Clinton has done so throughout her career.

He also said that “we will have to rule that out now, at least.” If he ever becomes president, let’s hope...

    "Consistent. Conservative. Trusted." That's Ted Cruz's campaign slogan. It suggests, among other things, that Mr. Cruz is honest, a man with a moral compass. Campaign slogans are platitudinousness by definition - everyone gets that. But, generally speaking, they communicate something simple and true about the candidate. In Cruz's case, however, the irony is overwhelming. The Texas senator has developed a reputation in Washington as a grandstanding huckster, someone who reliably puts himself above the party. Which is why he's arguably less popular among his Republican colleagues than among the Democrats. It appears that Cruz's reptilian tactics are starting to backfire....

The two reports are the first formal declarations by U.S. spy agencies detailing how they believe Clinton violated government rules when highly classified information in at least 22 email messages passed through her unsecured home server. Two sources said some of the top secret material was related to the CIA's campaign of drone strikes against...

    Gallup released a fascinating bit of data Tuesday that speaks to Clinton’s trust problem. They asked people to offer up the first word or phrase that came to mind when the name “Hillary Clinton” was mentioned. One in five people — unprompted by the poll taker — offered up some version of Clinton as "dishonest" or a "liar." That's somewhat remarkable given that these open-ended questions typically produce a gigantic muddle of something like 25 words or phrases — all of which garner somewhere between 5 and 8 percent support.

    A 2002 interview with Howard Stern shows Trump saying that he did, in fact, support the invasion. "Yeah, I guess so," Trump told the radio host when asked directly. "I wish the first time it was done correctly." https://soundcloud.com/buzzfeedandrew/trump-on-the-howard-stern-show-on-sept-11-2002 The Stern interview is in direct contrast with what Trump has been saying on the campaign trail, where he's been touting his early opposition to the war as an example of his foreign policy "vision." He didn't deny the comments. "I could have said that," Trump said, later saying that he "may have" made that statement.

    Rancho Mirage (United States) (AFP) - US President Barack Obama has hammered home his belief that Republican White House hopeful Donald Trump would not be elected, knocking his reality show past and penchant for drawing media attention. Obama did not limit his criticism to the billionaire real estate tycoon, hitting out at "troubling" statements from the entire GOP field of candidates seeking to replace him. But he reserved his toughest remarks for Trump, offering a scathing assessment of why he thinks the American people will not elect him. "I continue to believe that Mr Trump will not be president.

    Donald Trump and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz continued to joust for primacy heading into the South Carolina primary next weekend, foregoing policy differences for name-calling and insults. Trump called Cruz "nuts," "dishonest" and "an unstable person," while Cruz questioned both Trump's conservative credentials and whether he had the temperament to be president. Cruz is trying to weaken Trump's standing among South Carolina's social conservatives and evangelical Christians, a key voting bloc in Saturday's contest. "The people of South Carolina want a consistent conservative they can trust," Cruz told reporters before his rally in Aiken. About the same time at a...

According to Beck’s theory, Bush knows there is no path to the nomination but is convinced that someone has to stop his biggest rival and No. 1 critic, fellow Republican hopeful Donald Trump. “This would make Jeb one of the most honorable men you could ever imagine. He’s going through...
