    The Orange County Register ^ | May 1, 2016 | Carl M. Cannon
    With the pivotal Indiana presidential primary only two days away, and the decisive California contest still six weeks off, many Republican officials are already privately writing off 2016. Amid the wreckage of the turbulent 2016 nominating season, they still have a challenge in front of them: handicapping which of the two flawed finalists will cause the least long-term harm to their Grand Old Party. The conventional wisdom has been that Donald Trump is the bigger menace than Ted Cruz. Certainly, several swing-state Republican senators up for re-election in November worry about The Donald at the top of the GOP ticket...

    Machiavellianism is "the employment of cunning and duplicity in statecraft or in general conduct". The word comes from the Italian Renaissance diplomat and writer Niccolo Machiavelli, who wrote Il Principe (The Prince), among other works. In Psychology In modern psychology, Machiavellianism is one of the dark triad personalities, characterized by a duplicitous interpersonal style, a cynical disregard for morality and a focus on self-interest and personal gain. Machiavellianism is also a term that some social and personality psychologists use to describe a person's tendency to be unemotional, and therefore able to detach him or herself from conventional morality and...

    Texas Senator and Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz has placed a lot of electoral eggs in the basket that is Indiana, and so it was that Cruz found himself gamely pressing the flesh with voters outside the Pie Pan restaurant in Evansville this weekend. Pool cameras caught most of what was a truly impressive display of retail politicking by Cruz, who dutifully posed for photos and chatted up voters, and even managed to find a couple of eight year-old girls who weren’t terrified of him. All this was done to periodic bursts of song from Cruz body man Bruce Redden:...

    INDIANAPOLIS — It’s no fluke that Texas Sen. Ted Cruz stopped by Lucchese’s Italian restaurant outside Elkhart on a barnstorming tour of Indiana this past week. The family-owned eatery is a local landmark. Located on a busy county road, it was started more than 30 years ago by a firefighter who'd learned how to cook for his firehouse crew. It's now managed by his son, a Republican county commissioner, and frequented by conservative GOP Congresswoman Jackie Walorksi when she’s in town. Owner Frank Lucchese confessed to being a John Kasich fan in the presidential primary race, but he understood why...

    BURLINGAME, Calif. — Ted Cruz is speaking confidently about knocking off Donald Trump to take the GOP nomination, but his top staffers admit they’re getting nervous. In interviews, several aides, speaking on the condition of anonymity, expressed growing alarm that Cruz would lose Indiana’s primary on Tuesday — an outcome that would be a major blow to his hopes of holding Trump below the 1,237 delegates needed to clinch the GOP nomination on the party convention’s first ballot. The aides concede that, without a win in an Indiana primary where 57 delegates are at stake, Cruz’s shot at the nomination...

    John Kasich on Friday was pressed by a man in California to answer whether or not he believed people are born gay. "Do you believe that some people are born gay?" asked Kelly Bryan, 62, of San Francisco, who attended the Commonwealth Club of California event where Kasich was the featured guest. He later described himself as a Democrat who plans to vote for Hillary Clinton. "Please respond without prayer being an answer." Kasich first tried to dodge an answer. "I'm not gonna get into all the analysis of this or that, I'm not gonna do that," he said. As...

    Republican turnout this primary season is up 64% over 2012 levels, new data show, with participation accelerating in recent months as voters in big states got a rare shot to play a meaningful role. The rise in GOP turnout had been calculated at about 57% in the aggregate for states that voted through early April. The subsequent boost in what was already high GOP turnout comes as voters in New York, Pennsylvania and several other populous states had the rare opportunity this year in helping to choose the party’s nominee. Rarely has the contest lasted long enough for the outcome...

    Former Texas governor, Rick Perry denounced his colleague Ted Cruz and officially sided with Donald Trump. Perry appeared on ABC’s The View and shocked the country when he did not side with Cruz who hails from his state. Texas loyalty has helped the Cruz campaign for some time and this change is a massive defeat for Lyin’ Ted. At first, Perry seemed reluctant to fully praise Donald. He specified that some of Trump’s brash insults worry him and he wishes Donald could adopt a more “serious” tone. However, Trump’s positives clearly outweigh his occasional outbursts because Perry formally told reporters...

    Cruz also told reporters gathered in Fort Wayne, Indiana that he’d only met Boehner “two or three times.” Which, in terms of actual numbers, may or may not be true, but the depth of these meetings was far greater than Cruz’s statements suggested.

    Former House Speaker John Boehner ripped into Sen. Ted Cruz in a memorable fashion during a Wednesday appearance, prompting Cruz to say he "doesn't know" Boehner. "I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life," Boehner said, dubbing Cruz "Lucifer in the flesh." But a closer look at their history reveals the two weren't always enemies. In fact, long before Boehner saw Cruz as Lucifer, the 2016 Republican presidential candidate was actually his lawyer.

    In both his March New York Times interview and his more recent foreign policy speech at the Mayflower Hotel, presidential candidate Donald J. Trump has created tremors within America’s stodgy, utterly complacent foreign policy elite. He has alarmed those self-anointed Mandarins regarding several issues, including his comments that under certain circumstances he would not object to Japan and South Korea acquiring independent nuclear deterrents. But his comments about NATO have probably caused the most consternation. Trump’s own preference appears to be for greater burden-sharing within the alliance—a unicorn that American politicians, policymakers, and pundits have been chasing for more than...

In fact, the discussion quickly went back to Pence's decision to support any nominee that is decided upon by the Republican Convention. It was a marginal show of support for Cruz. Appreciation for Trump actually was the beginning of Pence's...

    Someone showed up at a Ted Cruz event in Elkhart, Indiana today with a copy of the Communist Manifesto. According to a reporter for the Texas Tribune, the kid, who looked like he could be a college student, asked Cruz to sign his “economic textbook.” A young man asks Ted Cruz to sign his "economic textbook." "That… would be the Communist Manifesto," Cruz says, realizing the prank.— Patrick Svitek (@PatrickSvitek) April 28, 2016 Video of the encounter published by WSBT22 shows Cruz paused and said, “You know what, I’ll sign it as well.” The college kid replied, “Ah, you...

    Not only will Burlingame be the center of the Republican political universe for three days starting Friday, when White House presidential hopefuls Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and John Kasich speak at the state Republican Convention, but some Democrats are taking advantage of the media spotlight shining on California, too. Billionaire San Francisco environmental activist Tom Steyer launched an 30-second ad Thursday ripping Cruz and Trump for their dubious attitudes toward climate change and urging people to vote against them. On Monday, the former hedge fund manager has announced his NextGen Climate Action super PAC would spend $25 million this year...

    On Wednesday, after his , Ted Cruz announced Carly Fiorina would be his running mate. According to our latest predictions, Carly may be the shortest termed VP candidate in US history. On Thursday, Cruz sycophant admitted the VP choice was a “desperate move” and a “last call” to save the campaign. RWW reported: Since Glenn Beck has transformed his daily radio program into little more than an arm of Cruz’s presidential operation, it was entirely predictable that he would kick off today’s program by conducting a softball interview with Fiorina, which he introduced by admitting that the campaign’s unusual move...

    In the space of just 7 minutes here on Thursday, Ted Cruz reminded fellow Republicans that he has few friends in the party. First he tangled with former House speaker John A. Boehner, a longtime foe who so dislikes Cruz that he labeled him “Lucifer in the flesh.” Then Cruz undercut another Republican, fellow presidential candidate John Kasich, who had entered into an alliance with him to stop GOP front-runner Donald Trump. “There is no alliance,” Cruz told reporters on Thursday, acting as if a pact announced by his own campaign days before had never happened. Minutes later, Kasich strategist...

    I’m glad he said this because the only proper way for this campaign to end is with Kasich deciding, out of pure pique, to compete hard in Indiana and try to spoil Cruz’s last chance there even though Kasich needs a brokered convention as much as Cruz does. It’d be a perfect microcosm of the wider party’s impotence and strategic idiocy all year long in failing to stop Trump. Burn it all down, John. Cleanse it with fire. “I recognize that the media is all eager to talk about an alliance. There is no alliance,” Mr. Cruz said. “Kasich and...

    NEW YORK – After negative reporting of his religious views, the Christian evangelist father of Ted Cruz has returned to the campaign trail in an effort to win evangelical voters in Indiana, whose primary Tuesday is regarded by many as the Texas senator’s last hope to keep his bid for the Republican presidential nomination alive. While the national media largely has been silent about Rafael Cruz’s re-emergence, local reporters in Indiana have covered his various appearances. WSBT-TV in Mishawaka, Indiana, reported Rafael Cruz created “a lot of excitement” by showing up as a guest of Indiana Republican Gov. Mike Pence...

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.”...
