  • Will Wisconsin Be Trump's Waterloo?

    RealClearPolitics ^ | April 3, 2016 | Salena Zito
    What rich irony, if one of the most calculating politicians in modern American politics miscalculated the will of Wisconsin's Republican voters, something Democrats have done repeatedly since 2010. If Donald Trump loses Wisconsin's primary on Tuesday, it will not be because of the uproar over his comments about Ted Cruz's wife, Heidi. Or his reaction to the confrontation with a female reporter that led to an arrest summons for his campaign manager. Or even his suggestion that women who get abortions should face “some form of punishment” if Roe v. Wade is overturned. Instead, it will be his misunderstanding of...

    One pastor in Iowa recently suggested that despite, or rather, because of the bitter rancor among Evangelical Christians over Donald Trump that one particular running mate could persuade naysayers to actually support Trump. Who is this Hawkeye pastor and why should anyone care about his opinion? In 2012, conservative commentator, Iowan Steve Deace, a #NeverTrump and Cruz supporter, identified the most effective “super-operatives” in Iowan politics. One, he wrote was an “unassuming pastor” of Walnut Creek Church, who “could very well be the most powerful man you’ve never heard of.” “He could easily mean the difference between victory and defeat...

    (RNS) More than 50 conservative Catholic activists and political leaders have come out in support of Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz in an effort to shore up Catholic backing for Cruz as an alternative to Donald Trump. Among them is a priest from South Carolina who may be skirting the edges of his own church’s policies against clerics becoming involved in politics. Trump is currently leading the three-man GOP field and has drawn strong primary support from Catholic voters despite his controversial rhetoric and past stands on key issues like abortion rights, which he once supported. The Catholics endorsing Cruz,...

    In the race for the Republican presidential nomination, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas has won more states than anyone other than Donald Trump and runs second in delegates won. But is that enough to persuade the anti-Trump forces that the rebellious outsider is now their best hope of blocking the New York billionaire? Cruz told supporters at his post-election rally Tuesday night in Houston that only he and Trump have a viable strategy to assemble the delegates needed to capture the nomination. That assertion is based on the campaign’s internal data analysis of the contests ahead, Cruz’s confidence in the...

    If Kasich wins Ohio, we will see a Trump/Kasich ticket. Why Kasich? 1) If he can carry Ohio in a significant fashion it will be extremely helpful for the electoral politics in which the GOP is disadvantaged. 2) Trump will want to balance the ticket with experience and someone like him who believes they can work with Dems as necessary to make progress. (Not every time like the GOPe) 3) Kasich brings a sense of quiet and calmness to the ticket which will get some who are nervous about Trump onboard. 4) Kasich is a conservative and has decent real...

    When this election started in what seems like a lifetime ago, I was contacted by the Bush people. After all, I had been a supporter of Bush 43 and one of his appointees. I expressed my concern that I thought it was bad for the country to have another election between a Clinton and a Bush. The world has changed dramatically since then to say the least. We now are facing a presidential election between a congenital liar and an egomaniacal opportunist. The person who can stop that is Ted Cruz by getting out of the race now. A Ted...
  • Abortion Access Rapidly Declining (162 clinics shut down)

    Arkansas Times ^ | February 24, 2016 | Esmé E Deprez
    Abortion access in the U.S. has been vanishing at the fastest annual pace on record, propelled by Republican state lawmakers’ push to legislate the industry out of existence. Since 2011, at least 162 abortion providers have shut or stopped offering the procedure, while just 21 opened. At no time since before 1973, when the U.S. Supreme Court legalized abortion, has a woman’s ability to terminate a pregnancy been more dependent on her zip code or financial resources to travel. The drop-off in providers—more than one every two weeks—occurred in 35 states, in both small towns and big cities that are...

    Watching the Sunday talk shows, if I didn't "know" that Jeb Bush was considered washed up, I would have thought the other campaigns saw him as a real force in Tuesday's balloting. On ABC's "This Week," both Donald Trump and Marco Rubio laid into Jeb. Trump countered Bush scoring points on him in a Saturday night debate exchange on eminent domain. Rubio, meanwhile, felt the need to get to the right of Bush on abortions during "crisis pregnancy" scenarios. Bush has been left for dead by pundits in recent weeks and months. The seeming front runner status he enjoyed early...

Located in Tokyo Bay, an inlet southeast of the city proper, the plan - dubbed Next Tokyo - wouldn't just be a single massive building, but if approved would emerge as a mini city designed to combat climate change. Envisioned as part of Tokyo's effort to protect itself from rising tides, Next Tokyo would feature a chain of man-made,...

    In 1973, Major League Baseball changed forever. Following a year when the American League recorded a batting average of .239, the AL instituted the designated hitter rule, allowing a team to place a hitter in the batting order instead of forcing the team’s pitcher to step up to the plate. Since that season, there has been an imbalance between the AL and the National League — which still requires a spot in the batting order for the team’s pitcher. Now, more than 40 years later, talks of making the two leagues consistent have begun to heat up once again. “It’s...

A lot of us longtime Cosby fans have been at a loss for words ever since long-simmering rumors boiled over in recent weeks that Cosby allegedly drugged and sexually assaulted women...

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) says he will decide on a potential 2016 presidential run "in the coming weeks." He'll do so without the help of a pro-amnesty adviser and former chief of staff who has left his office. "For me, the decision is made based on the following: I have my agenda that I have talked about for more than 4 years, and the decision that I have to make is where is the best place to advance this agenda—as a presidential candidate or continue at the majority in the Senate—that is a decision I will make in the coming...

    AUSTIN - With the formalities of a lightly contested election almost out of the way, the stage is all but set for the arrival of the most anticipated political newcomer in recent Texas history. The George P. Bush era appears ready to begin. About a quarter-century after first speaking at the Republican National Convention, and two years after filing paperwork to run for a then-unspecified state position, the 38-year-old grandson and nephew of presidents is expected to easily be elected land commissioner Tuesday. And while he has maintained a relatively low profile this year, holding few public events and focusing...

    Jeb Bush Talks 2016 Run With Donors By Peter Hamby,October 23, 2014 Jeb Bush wrestles with 2016 decision Jeb Bush met with South Carolina donors and business leaders Thursday Bush said he was seriously considering a presidential run in 2016 Washington (CNN) -- Jeb Bush was blitzed with questions Thursday about his presidential ambitions in a private session with top South Carolina donors and business leaders, multiple sources at the meeting told CNN. Bush was politely non-committal, as he is in public, but said he was seriously considering the possibility and would make a decision after the holiday season. Bush,...

    Run, Mitt, run. Yes, run far, far away from the Republican primary season that starts in 2015. You may be a fine man, but you are not going to be president, and you are not the answer for the Republicans in 2016. You could have/should have been both perhaps, but you blew it. Now, I hate to even think about the 2016 election with the 2014 mid terms still weeks away, but this nightmarish Groundhog Day idea of Romney 2016 just will not go away. Most recently, the Washington Post chronicled how campaign events for Joni Ernst in Iowa and...

    Whatever rights the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Human Rights Commission is safeguarding, the right to engage in commerce doesn’t seem to be among them — not if you’re a believing Christian, anyway. In a shocking decision, a commission examiner made a recommended ruling last Monday that a Christian businessman violated a local ordinance against sexual-orientation discrimination by refusing to print T-shirts with a pro-homosexual message. As Fox News’ Todd Starnes reported, “The examiner concluded that Blaine Adamson of Hands On Originals broke the law in 2012 by declining to print shirts promoting the Lexington Pride Festival. The Gay and Lesbian Services...

According to Politico, Bush is laying the groundwork for a bid with private prep work on key international issues and visits to top Senate races across the country to campaign.

    After a long, unapologetic effort to defeat Tea Party candidates in GOP primaries, the Washington establishment will likely need Tea Party voters in November to help swing several tight Senate races and win control of the upper chamber. The National Republican Senatorial Committee on Friday dismissed the notion that party voters are not united behind their candidates. “Can you point to a race … ? It’s a false narrative,” Kevin Broughton, spokesman for the Tea Party Patriots singled out a few races, particularly in Kansas and Mississippi, but suggested his troops will rally for the general election. Broughton said they...
