    The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday denied a request from a lawyer who once represented a woman known as the "DC Madam" to release records from her famous escort service. Those records include such sensitive information as customer names, Social Security numbers and addresses— information the lawyer, Montgomery Blair Sibley, has said could affect the 2016 presidential election. The so-called DC Madam Deborah Jeane Palfrey ran a high-priced escort service in the Washington D.C.-area for a number of years before her eventual conviction. She died in 2008. Sibley wanted the Supreme Court to lift a lower court order, in place...
  • Could RNC delegates be bought? Legally, maybe (LEGAL BRIBERY)

    WASHINGTON (CNN) —Buying votes is illegal. But, it turns out, buying delegates might not be. This summer's Republican National Convention is shaping up to be an all-out brawl for every delegate's vote -- and legally, that could mean plying some of them with gifts, experts say. There are federal and state laws prohibiting bribery of elected officials -- and restrictions on campaigns themselves -- but there isn't much on the books governing what private citizens serving as delegates at their parties' conventions can take in exchange for their votes on a nominating ballot. And in a fight between Donald Trump,...

    03/31/2016 8:20:36 PM PDT · by BagCamAddict · 186 replies
    FoxNews ^ | 03/31/16 | Eric Bolling
    In case anyone is unaware: All this talk about "1237 delegates means Trump is the nominee" is BUNK. That so-called "rule" is a temporary rule that can be changed at the convention. Therefore, Trump is not guaranteed the nomination even if he gets 1237, or 1400, or even 2000 delegates. They can change the rule to suit their #NeverTrump plan, and make the requirement 1 delegate more than however many Trump has. On the O'Reilly Factor tonight, Eric Bolling confirmed this. There are 42 convention rules in the rule book. Rules #26 through #42 are Temporary Rules that are written...

    Let it be understood that if Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz, John Kasich, Mitt Romney and the Republican Party power brokers steal the Republican nomination from Donald Trump at the convention -- when Trump is the clear leader -- we will walk out of the Republican party and not support its nominee. Trump’s support transcends his personality and is a movement that if the Republican Party was open, would welcome and leverage to the country’s advantage, instead of impeding, obstructing and destroying. Further, we will not return to the Republican Party but will go about the task of consolidating Trump’s political...

Stuart Varney: "Since 2010, 124 illegal immigrants were arrested, then released, and each of those 124 illegal immigrants went on to murder someone."

Cain, in an appearance on CBS' "Face the Nation," said that a "responsible Commander in Chief" would have consulted military commanders on the ground and asked, "Should we continue with this or should we modify it?"
