    Gateway Pundit ^ | 02/04/16 | Kristinn Taylor
    Donald Trump is drawing a huge crowd for his campaign rally in Exeter, New Hampshire at noon Thursday. The rally is being held at the historic Exeter Town Hall. CBS News reporter Jacqueline Alemany posted a photo to Twitter showing a long line of parked cars of rally attendees on a street that extended out of town. "Squeezing a Trump rally into the Exeter Town Hall is a sight to behold. Crowded, steamy, and scores of disappointed Trumpeters locked out." A photo posted to Twitter by the Cook Report's Dave Wasserman shows Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace and crew...

    Breitbart Twitter ^ | 02/04/2016 | Twitter
    Two days ago Breitbart's Milo Yiannopoulos and Allum Bokhari (the latter's twitter page linked up above) began teasing an "Explosive" Cruz scandal that was supposed to post imminently on Breitbart.com. According to Allum Bokhari, it would reveal the 'true face' of Ted Cruz and would be "much worse" than the Ben Carson-fraud fiasco currently ongoing. When asked if it would destroy the Cruz campaign, Allum replied he "couldn't say for sure." When asked about the initial delay, he replied that Breitbart is being very careful with the information due to its seriousness, but that the "wait was worth it." At...

    Ted Cruz unloaded on his rival Donald Trump after the real estate mogul accused him of voter fraud over Twitter. "I wake up every day and laugh at the latest thing Donald has tweeted," said Cruz, calling Wednesday’s outburst a "Trumpertantrum" brought on by Trump's inability to "debate the substance." On Wednesday morning, Trump sent out a series of tweets demanding the caucus results in Iowa be nullified due to what he claimed was voter fraud perpetrated by the Cruz campaign. In particular, Trump singled out reports that the Cruz campaign told voters during the caucus Dr. Ben Carson had...

    Rep. Steve King is taking heat for what he posted on Twitter during the caucuses Monday night about Ben Carson. King, the Cruz campaigns national co-chair, retweeted CNNs Chris Moody about Carson’s break from the campaign trail before New Hampshire’s primary. Carson looks like he is out. Iowans need to know before they vote. Most will go to Cruz, I hope, King tweeted. In another tweet, the congressman said Carson’s next steps were equivalent of suspending.

    Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump unleashed a slew of Twitter attacks on Iowa evangelical leader Bob Vander Plaats Sunday morning, the second time he has done so in less than a week. Trump says that Vander Plaats, head of the Iowa-based Family Leader, asked him to stay in his hotels for free and also requested he speak at an event while seeking $100,000 for himself. He made the same statements on Tuesday in a similar Twitter storm. At that time, Vander Plaats said he and his family stayed for free in Trump's hotels because Trump insisted he do so in...

    Republican front-runner Donald Trump has broken just about every rule of conventional US presidential campaigning. Short on a long-term political vision to help shape the destiny of the nation, he has gleefully insulted Muslims, Mexicans, women and virtually all of his opponents. A Trump-in-the-White-House scenario poses high stakes for the Gulf region. Gulf Arabs could pull billion in investment money from the US if Trump, who triggered a global outrage when he advocated a temporary ban on all Muslims entering the US, wins the presidency later this year, prominent UAE businessman Khalaf al-Habtoor said.

    Germany said on Tuesday that Facebook, Google and Twitter have agreed to delete hate speech from their websites within 24 hours, a new step in the fight against rising online racism following the refugee crisis. The government has been trying to get social platforms to crack down on the rise in anti-foreigner comments in German on the web as the country struggles to cope with an influx of more than 1 million refugees this year. The new agreement makes it easier for users and anti-racism groups to report hate speech to specialist teams at the three companies, German Justice Minister...

    A lot of differences in these polls are based on how tightly polls are screening voters. Looser screens help Bernie & Trump. For instance, the CNN poll implies a turnout of about 320K in the Iowa GOP caucus, versus ~120K in 2012. There are sometimes reasons to prefer looser screens. It can be hard to predict who will vote. Also, self-selection in who responds to poll.

    Juanita Broaddrick recently opened up on Twitter over her sexual assault by Bill Clinton and Hillary's dismissal of her suffering. If Hillary Clinton wants to champion women's rights, she should stop excusing the sexual predation of her husband, former president Bill Clinton. For someone so interested in combating the so-called War on Women, she has failed to address one of the most real issues women face-that of sexual violence. Anyone old enough to remember Clinton's presidency is aware of the scandal and eventual impeachment over his behavior and prevarications on what truth actually is during the Lewinsky affair.

    Many of you may be stunned by that question. After all you may be thinking what Donald Trump may have to do with John F. Kennedy, other than one wants to be president and one was president. The only other thing may be that in Trump's mind that his looks are as enduring as JFK's. But there is one way the respective presidential campaigns of the two men have something in common. You may remember not many people took seriously Kennedy's campaign for the 1960 nomination. He was the junior senator from Massachusetts who, for seven years prior to running,...

    Last week, Iyad El-Baghdadi, a human rights activist born in the United Arab Emirates, tweeted out portions of a call-to-action to Muslims worldwide by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, leader of the Islamic State. He asked people to "rise up" and join the extremist group in their fight. Muslims on Twitter found the request hilarious, and took the opportunity to have a little fun. In an American political sphere that occasionally posits Muslims — not some Muslims, not a very, very small number of extremists — as uniform threats to national security, Twitter's collective response to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi's request speaks to...

    With a view towards curbing abusive posts, Twitter has established new, stricter guidelines, stating, "We do not tolerate behavior that crosses the line into abuse, including behavior that harasses, intimidates, or uses fear to silence another user's voice." So far, so good. I can't imagine that anyone thinks we need more incivility and hatred and incitement on social media, and I can understand why Twitter CEO Dick Costolo feels "ashamed" at how poorly his company has handled abusers. With that in mind, Twitter's guidelines are understandable, stating, "You may not promote violence against or directly attack or threaten other people...

Most of that debate has centered on whether police had real reason to fear for their lives, as the grand jury believed.

Capitalizing on the Star Wars: The Force Awakens opening weekend, abortion giant Planned Parenthood promoted its cause with a series of light-hearted tweets using phrases and images from the beloved series to push for something serious: its agenda.
