    An explosion at a bar in the southern German city of Ansbach, near Nuremberg, has killed one person and injured several others, reports say. The cause is unclear although the city's mayor is quoted as saying it was an "explosive device". Police have sealed off the area around Eugene's Wine Bar, the Nuernberger Nachrichten newspaper reported. The incident comes amid tension following other bloody events in Germany over the past week.

  • Blame Minimum Wage, Not Carls Jr. CEO, For Automated Restaurants

    Investor's Business Daily ^ | 3/18/2016 | Editorial
    Overregulation: Carls Jr. and Hardees CEO Andy Puzder has people all in a huff over his idea to automate restaurants. But why be upset with Puzder? This is an inevitable consequence of massive minimum wage hikes by the government. With government driving up the cost of labor, its driving down the number of jobs, said Puzder. Youre going to see automation not just in airports and grocery stores, but in restaurants. Hes right. Thats why whenever the minimum wage rises above the market-set prevailing wage, jobs are destroyed. Who would pay someone $15 an hour to do a job thats...

    Veteran DJ Lewis in Wisconsin claims he was 5 feet away from RNC chairman Reince Priebus when he overheard that the GOP's voting machine had been purposely rigged to keep Donald Trump under 50 percent. Lewis said he recorded the chairman's conversation, but the mainstream media is refusing to run the story. "Already have tried 8 different places. I even taped his conversation and they tell me that is illegal," wrote Lewis. Lewis said he warned others that the voting machines in Wisconsin would be rigged.

    Despite Donald Trump winning Virginia on Super Tuesday, two of three delegates elected in the first district convention here are supporters of rival Ted Cruz which could matter if a second ballot were to take place at the national convention.

GOP delegates from Virginia are required to vote as allocated by voters in the primary in the first ballot at the national convention, but are able...

    The only defense that he and his supporters can muster is that he has "evolved" on his beliefs of nearly seven decades. This is awfully convenient, of course, considering that his new talking points match the narrative that is required to stir up what psychologists are calling the "authoritarian wing" of the Republican party. These are the Republicans who are angry about what the government is doing and who want someone strong to tell them what to think and how to act. It's the daddy-issues wing of the party - those who know enough to want change but who don't...

    WASHINGTON Ted Cruz, tagged as "Canadian" by a needling Donald Trump since the GOP race tightened in January, rejects any idea of being ineligible to be U.S. president. While Trump hasn't followed up on his threat to sue Calgary-born Cruz over what he says is the Texas senator not meeting the constitutional requirement of being a "natural-born citizen," plenty of other people have. Trump has warned that Democrats will disrupt the electoral process by suing if Cruz is the nominee. And that's caused Cruz a bit of trouble. He has had to lawyer up to fight the more than half-dozen...

"I'm so much into this, into New Hampshire, that I just — I don't care about that anymore," Trump said in an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper in Manchester, just five days out from next Tuesday's primary contest here. "This is the place I'm focused on now." These comments, made at Theo's, a popular local pizza joint that serves up specialty Italian and Greek dishes, were in stark contrast to a tirade of...

    Ted Cruz‘s wife, Heidi, was once so depressed that a police officer wrote: "I believed that she was a danger to herself." The incident happened in 2005 shortly after Heidi quit her high-powered job at the White House and moved to Austin, Texas, to be with her husband, who was state solicitor general. Police responded to a 911 call about a woman in a pink shirt sitting next to an expressway and found Mrs. Cruz sitting on the ground ten feet from speeding traffic with her head in her hands.

In an interview with “Morning Joe” Friday, Trump said he was pleased to be praised by Putin. “Sure, when people call you brilliant it’s always good, especially when the person heads up Russia,” he said.” Putin had called Trump “bright and talented” and all-but-endorsed his campaign this week.
