    CNN ^ | June 2, 2016
    An Iraq war veteran claims she was fired by Trump University because she needed two days a month off in order to serve in the Army Reserve. Corrine Sommers, who worked for Trump University for five months, sued Trump University after she was dismissed in October 2007. She reached a confidential settlement in that case. But she later alleged that she was fired because of her military service in a November 2012 deposition she gave in a federal class action suit that accused the school of fraud. That deposition was unsealed this week. Sommers alleged that a supervisor at the...

    For seven months, Republicans -- myself included -- have argued against the data. The data showed that Donald Trump would be a viable candidate. Many of us presumed he would eventually fade. Many of us presumed he would eventually burn out his supporters with his gaffes, waffling and walk backs. What many of us misunderstood was Republican voter anger. There are a lot of angry people out there and they are flocking to Donald Trump. They have good reason to be angry. Washington politicians, particularly Republicans, have broken promise after promise. People in Washington seem to be doing quite well...

    Hartford Tea Party co-founder endorses Ted Cruz and denounces Donald Trump. As one of the co-founders of the Hartford Tea Party in 2009, I was appalled to read the statement of Debbie Dooley, claiming that Donald Trump was the choice of someone who once claimed membership in a genuine grass roots organization dedicated to upholding the Constitution, reducing the size of government, eliminating government health care and opposing high government spending. In her endorsement for Donald Trump, she claimed the following:"I have been an activist fighting for conservative principles since 1976, so I reject individuals and publications that try to...

Trump has denied having a personal relationship with Robert LiButti, who was banned in 1991 from New Jersey casinos for his ties to the late Mafia boss John Gotti, Michael Isikoff, chief investigative correspondent at Yahoo News reports. That same year, Trump's hotel casino in Atlantic City, the Trump Plaza, was fined $200,000 by New Jersey regulators for violating anti-discrimination laws involving complaints linked...

    This election is the Republican Altamont, where conservatives got knifed by the Hells Angels. Its our own fault too the GOP teased its base, looked down upon it, lied to it, and when it turned out it wasnt playing games and pulled a blade the establishment wasnt ready. I spent the last few days at CPAC, surrounded by conservatives, and there was a clear preference for focusing on the symptom Donald Trump and his myriad failings rather than the disease. Our problem is not this digitally-challenged, bizarrely phallocentric clown; its our failure to represent the people left...

    Is that why he refuses to release his tax returns? After it was revealed this summer that Planned Parenthood was selling the organs and body parts of aborted human beings to biotech companies, Donald Trump said he wasn't sure if the organization should lose its federal funding. He even went out of his way to praise Planned Parenthood's good work. Meet the Press host Chuck Todd found Trump's stance interesting, so he asked Trump if he had ever been a Planned Parenthood donor. "It's possible," Trump replied. TODD: You were pretty--you were somewhat defending Planned Parenthood earlier this week. It...

What a country. Here are some details: In court filings last Friday, lawyers for both sides in a long-running civil lawsuit over the now defunct Trump University named Trump on their witness lists.

    Ben Carson finished dead last in South Carolina last night, as the polls predicted that he would. He did not finish last due to lack of effort, or because he was focusing on some other state where he had a better chance. By Carson's own admission, South Carolina was a state where he should have done well, and where the large evangelical population should have given him a decent chance to post a good showing. Instead, he finished behind John Kasich, a guy who spent significant portions of the last week campaigning in far flung places like Michigan. He finished...

    Is Donald Trump in trouble? After facing hostile questions from Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski Wednesday night--they comprehensively laid out his flip-flops, presented him with damning videotape, and asked him to explain the inconsistencies in detail--Trump was confronted by hostile audience members at MSNBC's televised town-hall forum. When a Muslim questioner got up to ask why he had said such bigoted things about minorities, Trump seemed to struggle while Scarborough forced him to respond. The candidate looked uncomfortable, unhappy, and somewhat lost. It could be a turning point. If only. Of course, none of this actually occurred Wednesday night, just...

Any regular reader of mine knows my obsession with money in American politics. Money may not be the root of all evil, but it is the catalyst that produces the most evil in American politics! However my gut tells me to process anything coming from The Donald’s mouth with a healthy dose of skepticism. On face value I mistrust Trump. He looks slimy to me and has a history of being...

    The Iowa caucuses have solidified Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders as two of the leading candidates in this cycle: Sanders is the democratic socialist channeling liberal disenchantment with the Goldman Sachs wing of the party, while Trump represents the frustration of Republican blue-collar, white, middle-class voters with global competition and immigration. Both of them are leading a revolt against their respective party elites. The similarities don't end there. You might think the two candidates have wildly different views on the signature domestic issue of the last six years: health care reform. But you'd be wrong. Sanders' plan, to the extent...

    Five days from the New Hampshire primary, Ben Carson has yet to set foot in this state since his fourth-place finish in Iowa. His detour to Florida for a fresh set of clothes has become a running joke online. The candidate is, by all indications, consumed by what he calls the "dirty tricks" of Ted Cruz's campaign.

It's people who smile in his face, shake his hand, go out to dinner with...

Wasatch County prosecutor Mckay King said the charges are appropriate, based on the allegations against Eckersley.

    Donald Trump should bounce back in New Hampshire on Tuesday. His loss in Iowa at the hands of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz was a setback, although it actually could have done Trump some good. But Trump cannot afford two losses in a row. You can always learn something from defeat. And a little humility never hurt anyone, and Trump, who is not used to losing, sure could use some. And he surprisingly flashed a little of it when he graciously congratulated Cruz, the man he had called a liar, on his first-place finish. But Trump still could not help himself...

Cruz did indeed support John Roberts' nomination. But Roberts was confirmed in 2005, years before Cruz was elected to the Senate. Cruz spokesman Rick Tyler says, "Trump's claim is ridiculous, especially considering that he has advocated and supported a single-payer health care...

    CNN's broadside of Ted Cruz is wrong. The network has denied that it bears any responsibility for Cruz's camp spreading rumors that Ben Carson might be quitting the presidential race. CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin even went so far as to call Cruz's explanation "BS" on the air. Yet the network's claim can be true only in the most deceptive - in other words, the most Clintonian - sense. Instead of what the meaning of the word is is, CNN is parsing what the word indicate means. Somewhat ironically, the network rests much of its case on tweets rather than on-air...

    Not defeat, but rather how one responds to it, determines “winners” and “losers.” Winners say, “Congratulations.” Losers affirm their designation by barking, “You cheated.” Donald Trump, after uncharacteristic graciousness in defeat Monday night, emerged as himself by accusing Ted Cruz of stealing the Iowa caucuses from him. At least Al Gore could claim he won the popular vote. The Donald lost convincingly to a man down five in the polls entering the contest. But he’s convinced he didn’t lose. Trump, using his preferred means of discourse, tweeted: “The State of Iowa should disqualify Ted Cruz from the most recent election...

    f I asked you what most defines Donald Trump supporters, what would you say? They’re white? They’re poor? They’re uneducated? You’d be wrong. In fact, I’ve found a single statistically significant variable predicts whether a voter supports Trump—and it’s not race, income or education levels: It’s authoritarianism. That’s right, Trump’s electoral strength—and his staying power—have been buoyed, above all, by Americans with authoritarian inclinations. And because of the prevalence of authoritarians in the American electorate, among Democrats as well as Republicans, it’s very possible that Trump’s fan base will continue to grow. My finding is the result of a national...

"My position has been clear throughout this campaign," Romney said. "I'm in favor of abortion being legal in the case of rape and incest, and the health and life of the mother." The Republican Party is gathering in Tampa, Fla., this week for its national convention, where in addition to nominating Romney for president, the party will officially adopt its national platform.

    Is the tea party changing the Republican Party from the inside -- or selling out to the GOP? As Republicans prepare to officially roll out Mitt Romney as their party's presidential nominee at the Republican National Convention this week, major tea party groups and figures have descended on Tampa, Florida, to schmooze with party bigwigs and rally for Romney. But Romney's conservative credentials have long been viewed with suspicion by the movement. So it came as a surprise when, before at least one event, tea party organizers committed what some activists would consider heresy: seeking approval from establishment Republicans to...

The party platform was drafted by a 112-member committee and will be unveiled early this week. Existing obscenity laws not only prohibit distribution of hardcore pornography on the Internet but also on hotel/motel TV, on...

    I was riding around in the car, listening to XM Radio and had FOX News with Megan Kelly's show on. She was interviewing some guy and said (paraphrase) she's hearing from people in the know who are discussing this behind closed doors that Obama will be re-elected for sure and gee, how would four more years of Obama affect the crapola you and I are talking about? What are we to think about this statement by Ms. Kelly? Complete rubbish?

    WASHINGTON (AP) - President Bush, described as very upset about a Muslim leader being ordered out of the White House, issued an apology Friday for the incident. ``The president is very concerned that an action was taken that was wrong, inappropriate and the president apologizes for it on behalf of the White House,'' press secretary Ari Fleischer said. A group of Muslim leaders walked out of a White House meeting Thursday, angered when a uniformed Secret Service officer ordered one of them - Abdullah Alarian, a congressional intern - out of the building. Secret Service spokesman Jim Mackin later said...

    Earlier today, The Washington Post reported on a hunting camp connected to presidential candidate Rick Perry bearing in its title a racial slur. On This Week earlier, fellow candidate Herman Cain reacted negatively to the news, criticizing Perry for going there so frequently.

Cain wasted no time in sharing his candid thoughts on the matter: That is very insensitive. There are some words that do not...

    This is the email I am attempting to send to Boehner's email: I am stunned that you caved into the radical leftists that have hijacked our republic, especially after the 2010 election results. The Tea Party principles are the majority view of the working slaves that fund your excesses. You are now part of the problem. An income tax is immoral. A tax on spending, called the Fair Tax, which actually taxes wealth, the underground economy and criminals is the moral way to fund the federal government. Repeal the 16th amendment, dismantle the Department of Education, Energy, Fannie and Freddie...
