    "Donald Trump's Secret Service detail and private bodyguards had the last laugh on Friday as hundreds of protesters swarmed at the front of a San Francisco airport hotel trying to block him from coming in for a speech at the state Republican Party's annual convention. Instead of partnering with uniformed police in riot shields trying to push the hordes back, they did a law-enforcement head fake leading the billionaire across a grass highway median and in a back-door loading dock at the Hyatt Regency hotel in the suburb of Burlingame. The move left Trump feeling like he was crossing...

    Raucous crowds of protesters took to the streets late Thursday in California as Donald Trump brought his Republican presidential campaign to conservative Orange County after sweeping the Northeast GOP primaries. Dozens of protesters were mostly peaceful as Trump gave his speech inside the Pacific Amphitheater. After the event, however, the demonstration grew rowdy and spilled into the streets. At least four people were arrested and one Trump supporter had his face bloodied in a scuffle as he tried to drive out of the arena. One man jumped on a police car, leaving its front and rear windows smashed and the...

One unhinged lunatic tried to storm the stage at a rally in Dayton, Ohio. He was stopped by Secret Service agents. Heaven only knows what he wouldve done had he gotten a hold of Mr. Trump. To be clear what happened over the weekend was not just an attack on Mr. Trump. It was an attack on the First Amendment.

    Rumors about Trump's visit started flying around the UIC campus Friday evening. Students were not happy. On Monday night, there was a meeting. The lecture hall, meant to hold 100 students, overflowed with representatives of student groups from the Black Student Union to Fearless and Undocumented. They decided they would march outside the rally to protest. "He's marginalized and dehumanized a lot of different groups, and they all come together," said Juan Rojas, one of the student organizers. A Facebook page was started to promote the protest. By the night of the Trump rally, more than 11,600 people had RSVP'd...

Protesters from both sides gathered in front of the U.S. Supreme Court building for oral arguments in a potential landmark abortion case, Whole Womans Health v. Hellerstedt.

    Hypocrisy is one of the most overused words in the English language. Most people think it refers to any failure to act in accordance with ones expressed beliefs. But thats simply inaccurate. Failure to live up to ones beliefs is called being a human. Being a hypocrite is when a person behaves in ways that are inconsistent with his expressed beliefs because he doesnt actually believe the things he is saying. At the core of true hypocrisy there usually lies one motive: Power. To put it another way, when people tell you things they dont actually believe, they are usually...

He meant, first, that Trump can draw huge crowds like candidate Barack Obama did in 2008. On Monday night, Trump rallied in a cavernous convention space in the Westgate hotel-casino complex; he filled about half the room, which given its size meant that thousands of people were there. Why not hold it in the Trump International Hotel 10 minutes away? Not enough room,...
