The Republican presidential front-runner listed for the first time five of the individuals who are part of a team, chaired by Sen. Jeff Sessions (Ala.), counseling him on foreign affairs and helping to shape his policies.

    Toronoto Sun ^ | 3-20-2016 | Crystal Wright
    To the American news media and Republican Party’s dismay, Donald Trump continues to be the 250-kilogram gorilla of a frontrunner in the 2016 presidential election. Trump is by far and wide the heir apparent to the GOP nomination. Yet, reading the Wall Street Journal’s editorial the day after March 15, when Trump won another round of contests, except Ohio, one was left with the impression that Trump was the biggest loser. Kasich finally won Ohio, the only contest he’s won so far.

    The Northern Marianas are a collection of 15 islands in the Pacific Ocean, located at about the focal point of the Pacific Rim. It's a United States territory, 179 square miles of land -- an area smaller than New York City -- that happens to jut out above the surface of the water. And on Tuesday morning, before you even woke up, it made Donald Trump the first man to qualify for the Republican presidential nomination.

    A Republican National Committee Standing Rules Committee member told the membership Friday that convention delegates are not bound to cast their votes at the convention according to primary vote results in the first round of voting. Curly Haugland of North Dakota, a long time member of the RNC Standing Rules Committee, sent a letter to the RNC membership at large about this issue. He explained how he came to the conclusion that all Republican delegates who participate in the 2016 Republican National Convention are unbound on each ballot round, including the first. Read more:

    A close finish for second place in South Carolina means nobody leaves. Just as importantly, Marco Rubio's decision to cut up Cruz personally, suggesting that Cruz is a nefarious crook and brutal manipulator, means that Cruz will never drop out and endorse Rubio; Rubio obviously won't do that for Cruz, either. ... Which spells a Trump nomination.

    The X Factor Gloria Steinem, in her September 4th editorial in the Los Angeles Times, came out strongly against Governor Palin claiming the only thing women have in common with Palin is an X chromosome. I respectfully disagree. Governor Palin knows what it is like to be a woman, a mother, a daughter, a sister - things the two men on the Democratic ticket can never fully understand. She knows what it is like to grow up invisible in an incredibly sexist society, to be stared at, groped, and sexually harassed. She knows what it is like to be smaller...

    Rudolph the Red Cell Terrorist: Mysterious White-Bearded "Bomber" Downed by US Air Force Over the Dakotas COLORADO SPRINGS, CO— Air Force officials working out of the Cheyenne Mountain facility confirmed today that American F-15E fighters engaged and shot down a suspected terrorist aircraft. Powered by eight reindeer, the sled-like contraption entered American airspace via Canada, and refused to flash its IFF code, a radio signal that identifies aircraft to ground controllers. "It was a tough call," Air Force Colonel and F-15 pilot John Maser said while describing what happened. "There we were: an unidentified flying object had entered our defense ...

    BEIT SHEMESH (December 25) - The organization that administers Orot school in Beit Shemesh issued an apology yesterday for publicly burning a copy of the New Testament a student received from Christian missionaries. "Everybody knows we made a mistake," said Jordana Klein, spokeswoman for Sha'alei Torah. "We wouldn't do it again. We don't think it's the right thing to do." The book-burning took place in the school courtyard the week before Hanukka, after a teacher in the boys' school found that one of his sixth-grade students had brought in a Hebrew copy of the New Testament. The student received it ...

The caption on the bottom of the poster reads, "What You See Is What You Get." A closer examination of the picture reveals that it is actually a mosaic composed of thousands of little photographs depicting terrorist attack scenes. The poster, according to ynet, is being distributed to pro-Israel organizations, both Jewish and non-Jewish, in North America and Europe. Officials in Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs claim they are "not involved in distributing the poster." Diplomatic sources told ynet that ...
