    While the tactics of chief Donald Trump rival Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)97% to win delegates without voters come under intense scrutiny, a quiet, thus-far-little-focused-on development has occurred that could provide a ray of hope for the Trump team fighting political insiders on their home turf. Paul Manafort, Trumps new Republican National Convention manager, just delivered not only a big win in Michigans delegate game: He undercut Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) by throwing a separate victory to Ohio Gov. John Kasich. CNN reported on Saturday evening: Ted Cruz suffered a rare convention loss Saturday after delegates backing John Kasich and Donald...

    In the latest shock for the GOP, which in recent weeks some have speculated is willing to scuttle the entire republican presidential campaign if it means not having Trump as the candidate, according to a just released Reuters poll, one third of Republican voters who support Donald Trump could turn their backs on their party in November's presidential election if he is denied the nomination in a contested convention. Or, as The Hill puts it, "blocking Donald Trump from the Republican presidential nomination with a contested convention would spell disaster for the GOP" because instead Trump supporters would vote Democrat,...

For this, the band's outraged lead singer Tom Morello recently took to the pages of Rolling Stone magazine to denounce Ryan as "clueless." Rage Against the Machine honor Che Guevara as their icon and fifth band member. " We've considered Che a fifth band member for a long time now," gushed Tom Morello, "for the simple reason that he exemplifies the integrity and revolutionary ideals to which we aspire."...

Since then, its no-compromise positions on deep budget cuts set the parameters of high-profile fiscal fights on Capitol Hill.... continued

    (CBS News) Just before Christmas, American workers got a rare gift from Washington politicians - the current payroll tax cut would be extended for two more months. At the time, both President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner lauded the move to avoid a tax increase for millions of working Americans. But there's something the politicians weren't bragging about - the fact that they're paying for the two-month tax cut with what has turned into a brand new fee on home buyers. The new fee is a minimum of one-tenth of 1 percent on Fannie Mae- and Freddie Mac-backed...

    * SNIP * Governor Christie is a very scripted "conservative." It doesn't come naturally to him. He's been able to sell his shtick based on his dislike of school teachers and public employee unions. And he's sold it successfully while appointing leftists like Paula Dow as Attorney General and sexologist Janet Rosenzweig as Commissioner of Children & Families; maintaining New Jersey's own Cap & Trade program; and establishing ObamaCare in the state. In his remarks, Christie admonished those who would "play politics" and unfairly "paint Islam with a brush of radical Muslim extremists." This is rather funny coming from a...

    HOUSTON -- The days leading up to "The Response," Texas Gov. Rick Perry's prayer rally at Reliant Stadium, had looked a little grim for the governor and the event's organizers. Only about 7,000 people had confirmed that they would attend a venue that seats 71,500, and the controversial roster of sponsors -- including the American Family Association, which is labeled a "hate group" by the Southern Poverty Law Center -- drew as much attention as the event's stated purpose of praying and fasting for the nation's improvement. - SNIP - I thought the day's shrewdest political insight came from Dr....

    The talking points prevailing in the wake of the debt ceiling debacle would have you believe that this deal had been a compromise, and the best for which conservatives and Tea Party ought to have hoped possible. At the end of the debates lies a truth concealed by all the fluff: There was no compromise in this debate; one side prevailed, but it wasnt the Tea Party. In a betrayal reminiscent of the movie Braveheart, when the Scottish nobility deserted the field, abandoning William Wallace to defeat, Republican leaders likewise abandoned the Tea Party, not for compromise, but in infamy...

    <p>As we survey the political landscape, things dont look so good for President Obama. Unemployment remains high (over 9%), fuel prices remain high (Obama said get used to it), we are still in Libya (days not weeks), and Americans who cant afford to go on vacation are increasingly sickened by Obamas never ending vacations and 70-plus trips to the golf course.</p>
