  • Antonin Scalia’s death should strengthen Ted Cruz’s case for the GOP nomination

    The Washington Post's The Fix ^ | February 14, 2016 | Chris Cillizza
    The stunning death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia -- announced just hours before the six remaining Republican presidential candidates gathered Saturday in South Carolina for a debate -- immediately ups the ante in the GOP primary and could well cement the base's commitment to nominating a "true" conservative along the lines of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. "We ought to make the 2016 election a referendum on the Supreme Court," Cruz told NBC's Chuck Todd on "Meet the Press" Sunday. "I cannot wait to stand on that debate stage with Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders and talk about what the...
  • Joe Scarborough-Donald Trump friendship increasing source of discomfort at NBC

    Last November, MSNBC's Joe Scarborough sat on stage at the 92nd Street Y in New York and recounted the various times he had given Donald Trump political advice. "I've actually called him up and said, 'Donald, listen, you need to speak in complete sentences at debates," Scarborough said. "After the second debate ... I walked into his office, I said, 'Donald, do you know how to read? ... I said, 'You should read before a debate! ... Read a paragraph on Syria, read a paragraph on education reform!'"

    The Market Ticker ^ | 02/08/2016 | Karl Denninger
    There's a clean question on the table regarding dual citizenship for persons born in Canada prior to 1977 (when they changed their law to officially recognize dual nationality.) Prior to that date, with few exceptions, you could not hold dual nationality with Canada. In other words the very act of "renouncing" Canadian Citizenship means that Cruz never held US citizenship at birth because his parents had to declare his nationality at the time he was born. There may be exceptions that were available at the time but the law now is immaterial. The only material fact is what the law...

    Saturday Night Live did not just take aim at Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz. The NBC comedy show also mocked his daughter, Catherine. (VIDEO-AT-LINK) In last night's cold open skit last night, an actor playing Cruz said, "First, my family, I would be nothing without the love and support of my incredible family like my daughter Catherine here." "Come here, sweetie," says the fake Cruz. "How about a hug for daddy?" "No," says the actress, clearly much older than the real life Catherine Cruz. "Come on, now, give daddy a hug for the camera?" "No." "Come here, sweetie. How about...

    The concluding statement in the article: "The introduction to this Article posed a question: “in the eyes of early Americans, would someone born in a foreign country of American parents be a ‘natural born citizen’ and therefore eligible to be President of the United States?” The pertinent historical materials lead to only one conclusion: aside from children born to U.S. ambassadors or soldiers in hostile armies, the answer is “no.”"

    Renew America ^ | February 05, 2016 | Tim Dunkin
    A lot of sound and fury has been generated in the past month concerning the natural born citizenship requirement found in the Constitution as a requirement for holding the office of the presidency. The issue has been around since Obama's first run for that office, though it was largely ignored at the time by the media and the political establishment. More recently, Donald Trump stumbled (quite by accident, I presume) into actually mentioning the Constitution when he raised the issue with regard to his competitor for the nomination, Ted Cruz. Now, the purpose of this present essay is not to...

"It's time for Ted Cruz to either settle his problem with the FACT that he was born in Canada and was a citizen of Canada, or get out of race," Trump tweeted Monday morning, on the heels of Fox News polls released over the weekend that showed him with double-digit leads over Cruz in both Iowa and New Hampshire.

    If Ted Cruz is a “natural-born citizen,” eligible to be president, what was all the fuss about Obama being born in Kenya? No one disputed that Obama’s mother was a U.S. citizen.Cruz was born in Canada to an American citizen mother and an alien father. If he’s eligible to be president, then so was Obama — even if he’d been born in Kenya.As with most constitutional arguments, whether or not Cruz is a “natural-born citizen” under the Constitution apparently comes down to whether you support Cruz for president. (Or, for liberals, whether you think U.S. citizenship is a worthless thing...

    Sunday night's NBC face-off between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders was watched by 10.2 million viewers, making it the most-watched Democratic primary debate since October. The ratings were an improvement over the other two Democratic debates on broadcast networks this election season. CBS's Democratic debate on a Saturday night in November averaged 8.5 million viewers. The ABC debate on the Saturday before Christmas in December had 7.8 million. NBC had an advantage over ABC and CBS, since Sunday nights have heavier TV viewership. Still, NBC's debate -- the fourth of the Democratic cycle -- didn't come close to matching the...

The Debate Committee for the RNC met via conference call and after hearing updates from RNC chairman Reince Priebus officially voted to cancel the partnership with NBC, according to sources on the call. The vote was unanimous. After the October debate hosted by NBC partner CNBC—in which co-moderator John Harwood was roundly criticized for a poor performance—the RNC suspended its relationship with NBC News over that upcoming Houston...

Ted Cruz (R-TX)97% would not be considered a "natural born citizen" under an originalist view of the Constitution. From the LA Times: Under either a textualist or a "living Constitution" theory, Cruz is a "natural born Citizen," eligible to be president; under an originalist view, however, he isn't. It's the conservative theory that would exclude the conservative Cruz from presidential eligibility. To an originalist, a "natural born Citizen" is a person who is a citizen of the United...

    What if the biggest mystery surrounding Col. Moammar Gadhafi had nothing to do with his long, brutal reign as the world's most eccentric and violent leader turned pariah? And what if a long-lost letter from a Catholic cardinal who knew Gadhafi's true identity was evidence that could have solved the mystery? To many Libyan people, the biggest question mark about Gadhafi does not involve his repressive and dictatorial rule, delusional statements or brazen lies. Behind closed doors, for years, they've wondered if he is Jewish. Last week the issue came out in the open, as NBC's Richard Engel reported from...

The Wiz is a product of that period in the 1970s when Broadway was producing “all-black” versions of everything. It is an urban, African-American version of The Wizard of Oz. The show gave us the popular song “Ease On Down the Road”. In a nice casting touch, Stephanie Mills, who originated the role of Dorothy in the 1975 Broadway cast, will be playing Auntie Em. The production will also feature Queen Latifah as the first female Wiz. By now, the plot should...

Representatives from ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox and CNN discussed how embeds and reporters from outlets are being treated, including being pushed into media "pens." The Washington Post was first to report on the conference call. It's unlikely a formal unified message will be sent to the Trump campaign unless all the networks agree on...

    Sunday on NBC’s “Meet The Press,” the deputy national security adviser for strategic communication for President Barack Obama Ben Rhodes said the president is not worried about America taking Syrian refugees despite reports that at least one man linked to the Paris attacks registered as refugee in Greece. Host Chuck Todd said, “If anything, ISIS looks like they’re more ambitious than ever.” Rhodes replied, “Well clearly, Chuck, they’ll have to be an intensification of our efforts, to look at what has worked in the application of the strategy and what hasn’t. What we see works, getting equipment arms directly to...

    On Thursday night and Friday morning, NBC News tried their best to go after Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson by attempting to make a mountain out of a molehill of his relationship with a man who was convicted nearly a decade ago of insurance fraud while ignoring the ongoing investigation of Hillary Clinton over her private e-mail server. Even though competitors ABC and CBS didn’t cover this story, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt hyped on Thursday that “Republican frontrunner Ben Carson is facing new questions about his friendship with a convicted felon.

    The two pistols shown above were misidentified as "submachine guns" by both the New York Police Department and nbcnewyork.com.

Even though the correct models of the pistols are given in the story, they are still misidentified as submachine guns. When the officers opened the bag, police say they found an Intratec Model AB-10 submachine gun and a Calico Model M-9 submachine gun. With all the scorn that has been heaped on media outlets for their ignorance about guns over the...

    The United States presidential election of 1980 was the 49th quadrennial presidential election. It was held on Tuesday, November 4, 1980. The contest was between incumbent Democratic President Jimmy Carter and his Republican opponent, former California Governor Ronald Reagan, as well as Republican Congressman John B. Anderson, who ran as an independent. Reagan, aided by the Iran hostage crisis and a worsening economy at home marked by high unemployment and inflation, won the election in a landslide, receiving the highest number of electoral votes ever won by a non-incumbent presidential candidate.
