  • With a Slur for Ted Cruz, Donald Trump Further Splits Voters

    New York Times ^ | February 12, 2016 | JONATHAN MARTIN and MAGGIE HABERMAN
    ... [I]n a campaign that has seemingly tested every political rule, Mr. Trump’s opponents hope his latest provocation will be too much for well-mannered voters in this heavily evangelical Christian state to bear: his use of a pungently vulgar word this week to describe one of his rivals, Senator Ted Cruz. Mr. Trump’s raunchy language has become unsurprising at his rallies. And the slur against Mr. Cruz was largely overshadowed by the coverage of the next day’s New Hampshire primary. But in voicing the crude term, Mr. Trump has further polarized a Republican Party already deeply divided about his candidacy,...

    "...[Pastor Mark Burns] repeated four times: "Donald Trump is pro-faith. He is pro-faith. He is pro-faith. He is pro-faith." But an attendee called out loudly that Trump is "profane" - presumably referring to Trump's use of the word "pussy" on stage to mock opponent Sen. Ted Cruz and other such statements over the course of the campaign. Burns responded by admitting that Trump's language is profane. "Let me tell you one thing, I'm grateful you said that, that Donald Trump is profane, and that's what you're saying," he said. "Donald Trump is profane, but guess what? ... I don't know...

    Obama now rules by fear and intimidation. That is why the GOP keeps betraying conservatives. It isn't just a change in law. The atmosphere of persecution and intimidation has entered our souls. You and I have internalized it. This is why we desperately need a truth-teller, to show how flimsy the left's power really is. Every other GOP candidate has had to kowtow to Obama's Marxist-Leninist style of governance. The nuclear surrender to Iran is just another betrayal by the most radical and destructive president in history. Our weak response to ISIS is another one. Even the Russians are shocked...

    Ms. Abedin, a longtime Clinton confidante, served as Secretary Clinton’s deputy chief-of-staff at the State Department and is now vice chairwoman of Mrs. Clinton’s 2016 campaign for the presidency. For about a half-year toward the end of Abedin’s tenure at the State Department, which coincided with Secretary Clinton’s own departure from the State Department in February 2013, Abedin was given a highly unusual and ethically dubious arrangement. She was permitted to work simultaneously for the State Department, Teneo, the Clinton Foundation, and even in a personal capacity for Mrs. Clinton in order to manage the secretary’s transition back to the...

    Feminism is the hydra-headed monster stalking Hillary Clinton's campaign for president. She once thought her appeal to women, as the first of her "gender" to get a real crack at the presidency, was straightforward, unambiguous and unstoppable, but now she can't hear the cheers for the cacophony of squabbling female voices. The first wave of feminism, in the 19th and early 20th centuries, appealed to a new version of womanhood. But after winning the vote with the 19th Amendment, most of the "new women" retired to the hearth and nursery to look and act a lot like their grandmothers. Women...

Trump was railing against "political hacks," when he stopped short of using a worse term. "I won't use foul language," he said to the crowd. "I'm just not going to do it, I'm not going to do it." They're all saying, ‘Do it, do it.' No," Trump said. "I'm not. That's better, right?" "Even if it's not a bad word, if it's a little bit off they kill me, so I won't do it.

    A new poll of Latino GOPers puts Trump ahead. Way ahead. And yes, there's an explanation, in the fault lines within the Latino community. Latinos for Trump? Oh yeah, that's a thing. Keep in mind three points. First, you have to understand that we're talking here primarily about Latino Republicans, many of whom might live in red states such as Arizona or Texas. Those Latinos who are Democrats (as about 80 percent of them are, according to surveys) are busy dividing up their support between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, with most of it going to Clinton.

Cain, the former Republican presidential candidate, says the "Trump phenomenon" is so powerful that black women are leaving the Democratic Party to support Trump, a current Republican presidential candidate.

    A would-be robbery victim got some street justice on Friday when a man held him up at gunpoint - and he sped away so fast, it ripped the gunman's arm off, police sources said. The pair met through Craigslist, where they had arranged to exchange a pair of Air Jordan sneakers near East 86th Street and Avenue M in Canarsie. But instead, the 17-year-old would-be robber pulled a gun on the 39-year-old man, who was sitting in his car, sources said. The victim then stomped on the gas to get away, dragging the crook, whose arm was ripped off, law...

The Vatican said the Pope will present the language decree when he celebrates a special service for indigenous people in Chiapas state next Monday. It is hoped this and other moves in Mexico will go some way to healing the hurt left by centuries of pain and conflict, some of which is certain to emerge during the visit. The Supreme Indigenous Council of Michoacan, Mexico, has already...

    Pontiff's show of solidarity during visit to Mexico Pope Francis, who has spent the past several months pressing nations, including America, to embrace those fleeing the unrest in the Middle East, Africa and Asia with open arms - and open borders - is now taking that stance to a new political level and planning a solidarity stand with migrants along the U.S.-Mexico boundary. Market Watch reported Francis is due to arrive in Mexico on Friday for a six-day visit. And as part of that visit, he is planning to stand on the U.S. border, in Ciudad Juarez, and deliver a...

    Conservative website Newsmax has pledged a very large donation to the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation, a new report in the Wall Street Journal states. "Newsmax, a conservative news organization, last year pledged $1 million to the Clinton Foundation over a five-year period, according to a spokesman for Chris Ruddy, the organizations CEO. Mr. Ruddy has been friends with the Clintons since 2007," reports the Journal. "Through a spokesman, he said the donation wasn't tantamount to an endorsement of Mrs. Clintons potential campaign, though he thinks she would 'make a great presidential candidate.'" Ruddy himself has even written a...

    "Trump won, the exit polls were right," Limbaugh continued. "Trump won men. He won women. He won every age group. He won every ideology. Liberal, conservative, moderate, Libertarian. Every group Trump won a majority of voters. He won among people who had gone to college and people who hadn't. He won among people who only had a high school education; he won among people who did not have a high school education. He won every single age bracket. He won those groups by huge margins. He won men 3-to-1 over second place finisher. Women he won 2-to-1. Voters under 30...

    QUEENS, N.Y. -- The ROTC program at St. John's University here seems perfectly placed for an Army that's desperate for officers who are bilingual and comfortable in foreign lands. About 40 of the 120 students speak second languages, including Turkish, Korean, Mandarin, Hindi, Albanian, and Gujarati. "I had never even heard of Gujarati until I learned I had a cadet who spoke it," says Lt. Col. Timothy Walter, who heads the program. But instead of being hailed as a model for the Army's future, the St. John's Reserve Officer Training Corps program is a lonely outpost of diversity. In the...

    St. Johns University's so-called Dean of Mean, Cecilia Chang, was found dead of an apparent suicide inside her Queens home this morning, a day after melting down on the witness stand. Chang was on trial for allegedly embezzling $1 million from St. John's and using foreign students as her personal, indentured servants. Chang hung herself and cops found her body at 7:38 a.m. inside the disgraced administrator's Jamaica Estates home, according to federal and local law enforcement sources.

    Another St. Valentines Day Massacre Feminists on thirty-four American Catholic Universities are planning a new St. Valentines Day Massacre, aimed at the Churchs traditional moral teaching, by organizing showings of the infamous lewd play, The V***** Monologues in the weeks surrounding St. Valentines Day. The choice of St. Valentines Day particularly offensive, since it is a feast day of the Church instituted to honor three martyrs who died to defend the Church. According to the Cardinal Newman Societys website (www.cardinalnewmansociety.org), the play is a conglomeration of vulgarities, obscenities and explicit discussions of sexuality and sexual encounters including lesbian activity and...
