  • Unstereotyped: Why this black pastor supports Donald Trump

    CNN Money ^ | May 25, 2016 | Tanzina Vega
    Warning: This story contains language some may find offensive. It should come as no surprise that Donald Trump has earned scant support among black voters. Black protesters have been heckled and kicked out of Trump rallies and a black man was sucker punched by a white man as he was leaving another event in North Carolina. Trump has also gained the support of white supremacists including David Duke, the former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan (Trump later disavowed Duke, but only after many public stumbles and increasing pressure to do so.) But James Davis, a black conservative pastor...

    A federal court ruling Tuesday declaring Ohio GOP lawmakers' voting restrictions unconstitutional could easily wind up before the U.S. Supreme Court — and generate a 4-4 split decision, a voting-rights expert says. [ ] Judge Michael H. Watson of U.S. District Court in Columbus said the Republican-dominated Ohio legislature violated the federal constitution and Voting Rights Act in 2014 when it reduced the state's early voting period from 35 to 28 days. The move also eliminated the so-called Golden Week in which eligible residents could register to vote and cast an absentee ballot at the same time. [ ] The...

    Add Harry Reid to the list of troubles dogging Hillary Clinton as she stumbles toward the Democratic nomination for president. The powerful Senate minority leader delivered an unusual warning to Clinton on selecting a running mate, vowing to "do whatever I can" to stop her from choosing a Democratic senator from a state led by a Republican governor. “If we have a Republican governor in any of those states, the answer is not only no, but hell no and I would do whatever I can, and I think most of my Democratic colleagues here would say the same thing," Reid,...

    A federal judge temporarily stopped the Ohio Department of Health from stripping more than $1 million from Planned Parenthood. A law, passed by mostly GOP legislators and signed by Republican Gov. John Kasich, would divert about $1.4 million in taxpayer money from Planned Parenthood to health departments for programs like HIV testing and sex education.

    This is not violence,” an angry abortion advocate screams while physically attacking a Created Equal team member. Last week a Columbus, OH resident roughed up one of our outreach team members even before he had an opportunity to dialogue with his intended audience. It seems increasingly common for abortion advocates not only to dissent to our message but also to resort to violence. In defending the violence of abortion, abortion advocates use violence to intimidate preborn defenders. But this call for protectionism isn’t just for abortion advocates or unbelievers anymore, but we now see it cropping up among Christians, especially...

The race is “unmistakably moving in Mitt Romney's direction, the memo said. But the claims proved wildly off the mark, a fact embarrassingly underscored when the high-tech voter turnout system that Romney himself called “state of the art” crashed at the worst moment, on Election Day.

    Donald Trump may be the last Republican standing in the 2016 race, but that doesn't mean everyone in his party is happy about it. At the Washington state Republican convention this weekend, 40 of the state's 41 elected GOP delegates went not to Trump but to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Trump's primary challenger in the race. The Seattle Times reports that even Trump's state campaign chairman in Washington, state Sen. Don Benton, didn't snag a delegate slot in the anti-Trump crowd. Cruz's state campaign manager, Saul Gamoran, said many Washington state Republicans are "taking a wait-and-see attitude" to Trump's candidacy....

    Nowadays, the “smoke-filled room” is mostly just a metaphor—but there was a real room that started it all. Well, sort of. The compelling image of the smoke-filled room, a “place of political intrigue and chicanery, where candidates were selected by party bosses in cigar-chewing session,” per William Safire, arose during the 1920 Republican convention. That year, Sen. Warren G. Harding of Ohio was the come-from-behind nominee for president, selected after ten ballots. According to historian David Pietrusza, author of 1920: The Year of the Six Presidents, the room in question is often credited with the phrase “because the people who...

    ATHENS, Ohio (April 15, 2010) – A new study led by Ohio University scientists suggests that early Native Americans left a bigger carbon footprint than previously thought, providing more evidence that humans impacted global climate long before the modern industrial era. Chemical analysis of a stalagmite found in the mountainous Buckeye Creek basin of West Virginia suggests that native people contributed a significant level of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere through land use practices. The early Native Americans burned trees to actively manage the forests to yield the nuts and fruit that were a large part of their diets. “They...

    INDIANAPOLIS — Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz is ending his campaign after suffering a devastating loss to frontrunner Donald Trump in the Indiana primary, campaign manager Jeff Roe told the Texas Tribune. With about 43 percent of the vote in, Trump was projected to beat Cruz by about 2o points, 54 percent to 35 percent. Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who had struck a deal with Cruz to effectively concede the Hoosier State, was winning less than 10 percent of the vote. Trump was on track to win most — if not all — of Indiana's 57 delegates, significantly easing his...

    John Kasich is staying in the Republican presidential race, his campaign said Tuesday. After finishing a distant third in Tuesday's Indiana primary, the Kasich campaign's chief strategist, John Weaver, sent out a memo announcing the Ohio governor will remain in the race until Trump secures the GOP nomination. "Tonight's results are not going to alter Gov. Kasich's campaign plans," Weaver wrote in the memo. "Our strategy has been and continues to be one that involves winning the nomination at an open convention."

    The Cruz campaign was hoping to score an upset after their dismal month where Donald Trump won nearly every county in six Eastern states. Ted Cruz finished third place in five of the six contests. But the Cruz campaign told FOX News today they expect Donald Trump to win Indiana in a landslide. The Cruz campaign would not be surprised if Trump walks away with three-fourths of the Indiana delegates.

    Upset that Donald Trump received just a handful of statewide delegates during an electronic vote, his Arizona campaign manager is threatening to sue the Arizona Republican Party. "This stinks to high heaven!" Jeff DeWit shouted at reporters, decrying the results of the at-large delegates. He suggested the website Arizona Republicans used to choose delegates for this summer's national GOP convention, NeverHillary.SimplyVoting.com, was rigged. He offered proof in terms of a screen shot that suggests statewide delegates clicked on a slate supporting Trump. "People clicked the trump button more than any other and we got hosed," he said. Former governor Jan Brewer, a national...

    Donald Trump won the Arizona Republican primary with 47% of the vote to second place Ted Cruz with 25%. But that didn’t stop the Cruz campaign and GOP elites from coming in and poaching all of the delegates at today’s state convention. The Cruz camp and GOP elites call this a “good ground game.” Even former Governor Jan Brewer, an outspoken Trump supporter, had her name removed from the online ballot and did not make the cut.

    PHOENIX — Texas Sen. Ted Cruz pulled out a strategic victory at the Arizona Republican Party convention, nailing down a large majority of delegates to the national convention amid cheating accusations from backers of businessman Donald Trump. The Cruz slate won virtually all of the 28 at-large national delegates and roughly split the 27 delegates selected by congressional district.

    (ARIZONA Op-Ed) If you are in Arizona, mark April 30th on your calendar and plan to attend because Arizona GOP elite says Trump voters don’t matter. This is why the Arizona Cruz supporters and the GOP establishment elite have entered into an unholy alliance to “stack the deck to steal the national delegates” from Mr. Trump at the Arizona GOP State Convention scheduled for April 30 in Mesa. A delegation of 1,251 state delegates elected from 40 Arizona Legislative and County Caucuses will descend on Mesa on April 30. Unfortunately, many of these state delegates are Cruz supporters led by...
