  • Andrea Tantaros Told To Take Some Time Off From Fox News (Suggests Cause is Support for Trump)

    div class="the-content">Andrea Tantaros, popular Fox News co-host of Outnumbered, will not be on the show for a little while.Here’s why…From BPR: There’s going to be a glaring absence on Fox News Channel’s “Outnumbered” — at least for the time being. After TVNewser received a tip that Tantaros would be absent for a while, the publication reached out to the network, which replied that there were some contract issues that needed working out.“Issues have arisen regarding Andrea’s contract, and Fox News Channel has determined it best that she take some time off,” FNC wrote. “She is still under contract with the network.”...

    This time it really is the end of Trump. Really. That was the title of the E.J. Dionne's column in the April 3 Washington Post. It was so spectacularlywrong in its prognostications that it really does deserve an award. Really. If only Dionne's column had been published two days earlier he could at least save some face by claiming it was just an April Fools joke. Unfortunately for Dionne, he doesn't have that out and will forever be known for perhaps the most hilariously wrong political predictions now and forever unto the end of time. It wouldn't be sobad for...

    Its time to go back to where we began: not only that Donald Trump will lose the Republican presidential nomination, but also that he could be so weakened by the end of the primaries that his party will not even have to worry about choosing someone else. I feel your skepticism. Hasnt Trump so far defied all predictions of his demise? Absolutely. Hasnt every claim that now hes gone too far been wrong? Of course.

    Our convoluted primary system evolved to allow voters a more direct voice in choosing a candidate who can win a general election. Voters dont always choose wisely -- after all, one party always loses. Its a shame then -- in what should be a Republican year -- that GOP primary voters appear to want to lose the presidency once again.If the candidate at the top of the ticket is roundly defeated, the toll could also take down many Republicans running for the House and the Senate.The latest polls show that only one Republican candidate has a sure chance of...

    Not so fast, everybody. To paraphrase Winston Churchill, Wisconsin will not be the end of Donald Trump. It will not even be the beginning of the end. But it might be the end of the beginning. To be sure, Trump had a terrible, horrible, atrocious week. But imagine the worst-case scenario for him: He wins none of Wisconsins 42 convention delegates in Tuesdays primary, while his nearest rival, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), wins them all. Even with that improbable result, Trump would have a huge lead over Cruz in the delegate race, 736 to 505. A Wisconsin shutout would make...

    Donald Trump’s criticisms of Megyn Kelly have been weak, sexist, thin-skinned. His decision to back out of Thursday night’s debate is childish and reflects a fear of having to debate his competitors on issues facing the country. All that said, this dispute is turning into a spectacle with two losers. Fox News unwisely sent out a statement yesterday designed to mock the Republican front-runner for his decision to launch a Twitter poll on whether he should participate in the debate. Here’s what that statement said: We learned from a secret back channel that the Ayatollah and Putin both intend to...

He liked that last line so much, he asked his readers to repeat it with him: "Let's say that once again: A gun-free society." Bliss, he thinks.

    WASHINGTON Republicans won't win the presidency in 2016 without making inroads in the Midwest. Happily for the GOP, two Midwestern governors are running for their party's nomination. Both won re-election in 2014. The one from the state with more electoral votes won with 64 percent of the vote with wide appeal to Democrats and independents. The one from the smaller state got just 52 percent of the vote after a divisive campaign. The former fought to have his state accept the Affordable Care Act's Medicaid expansion.

    There is a rule in American politics: Hope and optimism nearly always defeat fear and pessimism. The Republican Party faces a long-term challenge in presidential elections because it is defining itself as a gloomy enclave, a collection of pessimists who fear what our country is becoming and where it is going. The partys hope deficit helps explain why theres a boomlet for Jeb Bush, a man who dares to use the word love in a paragraph about illegal immigrants. The flurry doesnt mean that the former Florida governor is even running for president, let alone that he can win. But...

After nearly two decades in which established opinion insisted that it would never again be possible to pass sensible regulations of firearms, the unthinkable is on the verge of happening. This week, Sen. Patrick Leahy, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, is expected to announce plans to start marking up gun bills to send to the Senate floor, proposals that will include ideas put before the country by President Obama and Vice President Biden.

    In an astonishing display of hypocrisy, NBC News repeatedly decried Mitt Romney using celebrity businessman Donald Trump to fundraise for his campaign. This is the same Donald Trump who hosts NBC reality shows The Apprentice and The Celebrity Apprentice and who routinely appears on the Today show to promote those programs, including just last week. On Tuesday's Today, correspondent Peter Alexander declared that Trump "causes heartburn for some in the Republican Party because of his insistence on renewing questions about where the President was born." He later wrapped up his report by parroting Obama campaign talking points: "The Obama campaign...

    Can a nation remain a superpower if its internal politics are incorrigibly stupid? Start with taxes. In every other serious democracy, conservative political parties feel at least some obligation to match their tax policies with their spending plans. David Cameron, the new Conservative prime minister in Britain, is a leading example. He recently offered a rather brutal budget that includes severe cutbacks. I have doubts about some of them, but at least Cameron cared enough about reducing his country's deficit that alongside the cuts he also proposed an increase in the value-added tax, from 17.5 percent to 20 percent.

Is our GOP presidential primary system rigged, meaning it is corrupt because it favors the establishment? Is it convoluted, arbitrary, arcane...and too often "voteless"? Is it wrong to allow "Trojan horse" delegates to change their vote on the second ballot of the national convention? Why do we have a separate election for delegates after we vote for candidates?

Here's one delegate's story of how it all went down. Q: Who won the district? If Trump won it, why didn't pro-Trump delegates win at the meeting? A: The primary dictates how the delegates are to vote on the first ballot. It doesn't dictate who the people are that are elected to represent the convention body at the RNC. Q: Did...

Most Americans see slavery as an artifact of the distant past that has no bearing on the nations present. And even people who are sympathetic to the reparations idea and who acknowledge the continued imprint of slavery on society have often argued that there is no way to distinguish descendants who have provable claims to compensation from those who do not, partly because enslaved people usually went...

Now that he is nearing the Republican nomination, he says he will become more presidential. After winning the New York primary, he referred to Senator Cruz instead of Lyin Ted. You can expect multitudes of office-seekers and sycophants to follow Chris Christies craven path to believing, or pretending to believe, in a presidential Trump. So it is important to remember.

    Over the weekend, Bernie Sanders supporters staked out Hillary Clintons George Clooney-hosted fundraiser in San Francisco and threw actual dollar bills at her motorcade as she drove by. They did so to decry the corrupting force of money in politics, but Clintons campaign has actively painted it as a misogynistic attempt to liken her to a whore. This narrative likely stems from a comment made by Sanders supporter and prominent healthcare activist Dr. Paul Song at a recent rally.

The conveniently timed Tax Simplification Act of 2016 would direct the IRS to develop a free, online tax preparation and filing service, using tax information the IRS already has, which Americans could choose to use to have their taxes filed directly with the government, instead of using a third-party service, such as TurboTax.

However, only one week earlier, on MSNBC’s Morning Joe,Wallace condemned Trump’s opposition within the party as “illegitimate.” On Today, Wallace told co-host Savannah Guthrie: “I mean, the whole notion that Republicans waited until the last 48 hours to say the things they're saying about Trump. As much responsibility lies with the folks running against Trump as lies with the Trump campaign this morning for where we are.”Nicolle Wallace Labels Anti-Trump Effort...

    Bernie Sanders couldnt have made Hillary Clinton look any more Wall Street if the split screen during last nights CNN debate showed her lighting stogies with $100 bills at a Delmonicos table festooned with Baked Alaska and snifters full of brandy, alongside cronies J.P. Morgan and Gordon Gekko.

    Whenever Donald Trump and his followers are confronted with his evidence of hisabysmally terrible polling numbers on personal favorability and versus Hillary Clinton, they typically respond with a pair of deflections. First, they say that Trump "hasn't even started" attacking Hillary yet. Setting aside the fact that Trump has taken many hard jabs at Mrs. Clinton over a span of months, this line of thinking requires a logical leap: That once he does train virtually all of his fire on her, it will both hurt her andhelp him. American voters have been subjected to endlessTrump coverage since last spring, over...

    Strong headwinds of unpopularity continue to hobble leading Republicans Donald Trump and Ted Cruz with the public at-large, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll. By contrast, most Republicans see Trump and Cruz in a favorable light - 56 and 58 percent, respectively - while John Kasich is less popular among fellow partisans (47 percent) despite receiving the best ratings among the broader electorate. The poll finds Trump suffering little damage from recent controversies over punishments for women who have abortions and the arrest of his campaign manager, though the real-estate moguls ratings are still in the doldrums. Thirty-one...

    When asked about Trump as the GOP nominee in November instead of Cruz, registered voters are split between Clinton and Trump, though the race is tighter: Thirty-eight percent would vote for Clinton and 36 percent would vote for Trump. Another 16 percent would vote for a third party candidate and 8 percent would abstain from voting.

    Sometimes I wonder. This political season has given us much entertainment from both major parties. Hillary and Bernie for the Democrats, and Trump and Cruz turning in banner performances for the Republicans. Great entertainment, but very little leadership or hope for Americas future. Aside from her history as one of Americas most corrupt, dishonest and despicable politicians in American history, Hillary will now be widely remembered more for barking like a dog for the whole world to see. That image, one of the most hilarious and entertaining images ever on display in a national political contest will surely come back...

    photo ops can suddenly turn on a politician and bite their South Side in front of the same leering cameras. Ask Hillary Clinton after her awkward Thursday experience attempting to enter the New York City subway. Clintons had Secret Service chauffeurs for 23 years now. She hasnt driven a car this century. She prohibits traveling press from photographing her boarding chartered private jets. But with the New York primary just 11 days away and another elderly ex-New Yorker undermining her sure-fire, now lame nomination campaign by winning six of the last seven contests, millionairess Clinton wanted to look like...
  • Cruz uses party rules to pursue delegates. Heres what Trump thinks of that.

    Donald Trump used his first campaign rally in western New York to attack Sen. Ted Cruz for something the Texan happily boasts about: mastering party rules to elect his delegate slates to the Republican National Convention. Theyre trying to subvert the movement, Trump said to thousands of voters crammed into a frigid airplane hangar Sunday. They cant do it with bodies, so theyre trying to subvert the movement with crooked shenanigans. The Rochester rally was only Trumps second in the 14-day New York campaign, and his first since Cruz swept Colorados 34 available delegates in a series of conventions. Trumps...

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is blasting the way the country chooses presidential party nominees as corrupt and crooked as he grapples with the potential of a brokered convention that he risks losing. Speaking to thousands packed in a frigid airport hangar in western New York on Sunday, Trump ripped the byzantine fight over delegates at the heart of his partys nominating process. He argued anew that the person who wins the most votes in the primary process should automatically be the GOP nominee. What theyre trying to do is subvert the movement with crooked shenanigans, said Trump, comparing his...

    To his credit, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas admits he is not a warm and fuzzy guy. In the town hall before Wisconsin's primary, he acknowledged, What I will say is I'm a pretty driven guy. That has pros and cons. I have always been a very driven guy. In a GOP debate in October, he offered, If you want someone to grab a beer with, I may not be that guy. But if you want someone to drive you home, I will get the job done and I will get you home. Now it is true that the most...

    ESPN host Bomani Jones wore a "Caucasians" t-shirt mocking the Cleveland Indians' "Chief Wahoo" logo during the "Mike & Mike" show on Thursday. The shirt includes the word "Caucasians" in the Indians' font, with a character based on "Chief Wahoo" that has white skin (instead of red), a basic nose (instead of a large, hooked nose), blonde hair (instead of dark hair parted, and held down by a head band), and a dollar sign (instead of a feather). Here are the two logos side-by-side:
