    The Washington Post's Post Politics ^ | May 22, 2016 | Abby Phillip
    Hillary Clinton says she welcomes businessman and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban's interest in potentially becoming her vice presidential running mate. In an interview that aired Sunday, Clinton opened the door wide open to Cuban and other business leaders, who could serve to counter the likely Republican nominee, real estate mogul Donald Trump. "I think we should look widely and broadly. It's not just people in elected office. It is successful businesspeople," Clinton told NBC News's Chuck Todd on "Meet the Press." "I am very interested in that." "And I appreciate his openness to it," she added of Cuban's comments....

    During a May 14 commencement address to Old Miss graduates, retired news anchor and journalist Tom Brokaw said, “more guns … will mean more homegrown acts of terror.” Tom Brokaw lamented the continuing expansion of gun ownership and the success of gun rights organizations that support that expansion. According to The Commercial Appeal, Brokaw referenced the homicide rate in Democrat-run Memphis, Tennessee, then said: I’m appalled by the determination of organizations and individuals to arm more people without any appreciation of the consequence of evermore lethal weapons in our midst. More guns and more firearm tolerance will mean more homegrown...

    Libertarian Party presidential candidate Gary Johnson has agreed to join forces with former Massachusetts Governor William Weld for the Libertarian Party's nomination. Weld will run for the party's vice presidential slot, possibly bolstering the third party's appeal to general election voters. Weld was a popular governor in the 1990s with crossover appeal and could boost the legitimacy of a third-party option for voters disgruntled by presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump and likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. "It brings an enormous amount of credibility to what it is I'm doing," Johnson, the former governor of New Mexico, said in a statement....

    It wasn't quite the Red Wedding, but Thursday brought viewers news of more than a dozen prime-time shows being axed to make room for new programs next season. ABC took the sword to seven series (including country music drama "Nashville" and veteran whodunit "Castle") while Fox is sacrificing five freshman shows, including comedies starring aging pretty boys Rob Lowe and John Stamos. Meanwhile, CBS is deleting "CSI: Cyber" after this, its sophomore season, thus laying to rest the "CSI" dynasty that encompassed four series during a 16-year span.

Pat Boone is calling out NBC and Saturday Night Live for allegedly being anti-Semitic, anti-Christian, cowardly, “diabolical” and even demonic for a skit over the weekend that parodied God’s Not Dead 2, the actor-singer’s latest movie.

"It's very telling that's Ted Cruz tonight is not in Brooklyn or Manhattan or any of the boroughs or state. He's in Pennsylvania," reported Jackson. "He'll be in Philly for his watch party tonight," Jackson said. "That's indicative of where he and his campaign see this race going, to Pennsylvania, where they are looking to...

On April 13, ABC’s World News Tonight correspondent Tom Llamas devoted most of that night’s report to chilling death threats against the Colorado state Republican party chairman, angered at how Donald Trump failed to win any delegates at the weekend party convention. Besides that one report, and two minor mentions (one on ABC’s Good Morning America and on Thursday’s CBS Evening News, that’s all the broadcast news attention given to reports of actual death threats in...

    On Tuesday, New Jersey Administrative law Judge Jeff Masin ruled against a lawsuit claiming that Senator Ted Cruz is not eligible to become president because he is not a “natural born citizen.” The plaintiffs claimed that Cruz is ineligible because, although he is the son of a US citizen, he was born in Canada (where his parents were living at the time). Judge Masin’s opinion is notable for its detailed analysis of the evidence on the original meaning of the “natural born citizen” and recent scholarship on the subject. I think the opinion is well-reasoned and very persuasive. Judge Masin...

"Unlike the other people running, he has a real track record," Romney said of Kasich. "He has the kind of record that you want in Washington, and that's why I'm convinced that you're going to do the right thing tomorrow." Today, however, Romney's voice appears on robocalls in Arizona and Utah, telling these voters to side with Ted Cruz -- and...

    We used to go crazy because of Obama's birth in Kenya to a foreign father and American mother. How is Ted Cruz different? Would a child born here to foreigners be any different? That's Marco's plight. I'm interested in seeing how the poo flings and also if instead of Marco or Ted, the child's first name was Mohammed twenty years from now with massive immigration and amnesty.
  • The Big 2016 Story Out of the Nevada GOP Caucus? Turnout.

    While Donald Trump won a sweeping victory in Nevada on Tuesday night - his third victory in a row - the biggest story out of the Silver State may actually be the record-breaking turnout Republicans saw at the evening's caucus gatherings. The Nevada Republican Party reported Wednesday morning that more than 75,000 voters participated in the contest. While that might not seem like a stunning number in a state with a population of somewhere around three million, that turnout absolutely demolished the participation record from 2012, when only about 33,000 Republican voters showed up to caucus. In fact, Donald Trump...

    The U.S. Constitution prohibits anyone except a "natural born citizen" from becoming President, though legal experts disagree as to whether or not that means they need to be born in the United States or simply be an American citizen at birth. Though they may quibble on the definition, most Americans don't think this long-standing rule should be changed to allow naturalized citizens to inhabit the Oval Office. According to a CBS News poll released Sunday, while 21% of Americans would favor changing the Constitution to allow people who aren't natural born U.S. citizens to become President, 75% would oppose such...

    Well then, you must like losing your job to someone in Mexico who will make $3/hour. Union leaders at an air conditioner factory in Indianapolis threatened with losing 1,400 jobs to Mexico said on Tuesday the plants owner expects to pay Mexican workers $3 an hour compared to an average of more than $20 an hour for the U.S. workers. "We have not given up the fight yet," said Chuck Jones, president of the United Steelworkers union local that represents workers at the Carrier Corp plant. "But Carrier has pretty well indicated that the wage differential is too great and...

    The problem: the meaning of "natural-born citizen" Here is what the Constitution says about who can be president: No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States. The problem is the Constitution doesn't define "natural born Citizen." Neither does any current law. And no one has...
  • Illinois judge agrees to hear lawsuit filed against Ted Cruz stating he should NOT be eligible (tr)

    The question of whether or not Ted Cruz can serve as president of the United States is heading to court. A judge has agreed to hear a lawsuit filed against the presidential hopeful by Illinois voter Lawrence Joyce.

Cruz has stated before that he is an American citizen despite being born in Canada and having a Cuban father because...

    Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who was mayor during the horrific 9/11 Islamic terrorist attacks that brought down the World Trade Center — the twin towers — and resulted in the tragic death of over 3,000 Americans, says that Donald Trump calling George W. Bush a liar over the matter is “absolutely wrong.”Giuliani, appearing on FOX & Friends Wednesday morning, said that while he may turn out to be a supporter of Trump’s, perhaps even during the primary and even considers him a friend, his blame of President Bush for 9/11 is way out of bounds.“What he said...

    A new weekly national tracking poll from NBC News shows Donald Trump adding to his lead over the Republican field, while Hillary Clinton's lead over Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT)16% narrows slightly. Trump has the support of 38 percent of Republicans nationally, 20 points higher than his nearest rival Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)97% , with 18 percent. Hillary Clinton leads Sanders by 10 points, 50-40. The poll was conducted last week, Monday through Sunday, so it mostly doesn't reflect changes from Saturday's GOP Presidential debate. According to the survey, however, Trump gained three points over the week, while Cruz dropped two...
