    Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Wednesday started selling T-shirts featuring the slogan "I'm With You" to help fund his campaign. attempt to turn presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton's "I'm With Her" slogan against her. She believes shes entitled to the office. Her campaign slogan is, 'I'm with her,'" Trump said during a speech Wednesday in which he attacked Clinton in an attempt to cast her as a corrupt figure. You know what my response to that is? Im with you, the American people. She thinks its all about her. I know its all about you. Earlier Wednesday, Trump...

    <p>'The Last Ship' delays season premiere; plot involved a nightclub shooting June 12 NEW YORK TNT is postponing the season three premiere of "The Last Ship" because the drama's storyline bears some similarities to Sunday's mass shooting in Orlando, Florida. The episode was supposed to debut on Sunday night. But "as a result of the shootings this weekend in Orlando," it "has been postponed," TNT said in a statement.

    Its easy to laugh at a grown man in a rubber dog suit chewing on a squeaky toy. Maybe too easy, in fact, because to laugh is to dismiss it, denigrate it ignore the fact that many of us have found comfort and joy in pretending to be animals at some point in our lives. Secret Life of the Human Pups is a sympathetic look at the world of pup play, a movement that grew out of the BDSM community and has exploded in the last 15 years as the internet made it easier to reach out to likeminded...
  • AUDIO: Glenn Beck, Brad Thor discuss a patriot taking out Donald Trump

    Talk radio host Glenn Beck and best-selling author Brad Thor believe the only way to get a President Trump out of office is for a patriot to apparently kill him. Appearing on Becks radio program this morning, Thor said: I am about to suggest something very bad. It is a hypothetical I am going to ask as a thriller writer. With the feckless, spineless Congress we have, who will stand in the way of Donald Trump overstepping his constitutional authority as President? If Congress wont remove him from office, what patriot will step up and do that if, if, he...

    Donald J. Trump plans to throw Bill Clintons infidelities in Hillary Clintons face on live television during the presidential debates this fall, questioning whether she enabled his behavior and sought to discredit the women involved. Mr. Trump will try to hold her accountable for security lapses at the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, and for the death of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens there. And he intends to portray Mrs. Clinton as fundamentally corrupt, invoking everything from her cattle futures trades in the late 1970s to the federal investigation into her email practices as secretary of state. Drawing on psychological warfare...

"I have some concerns with him. He scares me to death; so does Hillary Clinton . There is no easy choice right now."

    Something is terribly amiss within the Hillary Clinton campaign these days. They know it. Their supporters in the Mainstream Media know it. The DNC knows it. And so too does Hillary Clinton herself know it. With the General Election race not yet officially underway, Team Hillary is dealing with an increasingly unpopular candidate with a very weak base of support upon which to build a national campaign and despite hundreds of millions of dollars at the ready to make her more appealing, voters so far appear reluctant to give her much attention and even less respect. Mrs. Clinton is looking...

The congressman on Monday denied profiting from information gleaned from the meeting on 18 September 2008 when Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke, then treasury secretary Hank Paulson and others outlined their fears for the banking sector.

    Most of the storylines on NFL Draft night are typically about players realizing their lifelong dreams of playing professional football. But even though he was selected 13th overall by the Miami Dolphins, offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil found himself at the center of headlines for all the wrong reasons.

    Arizona State Senator Kelli Ward, challenging U.S. Senator Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), leads the five-term Washington insider for the first time in a poll. Her lead stands at nine percent. Ward was the choice of 45 percent of the registered Arizona voters polled, while McCain only garnered 36 percent. 1,271 of the more than 1,400 voters polled say they intend to vote in the 2016 primary election. Approximately one fifth remained undecided at this early stage of the race. Independent polling company Gravis Marketing conducted the August 15 poll. It surveyed 844 Republican primary voters and 427 Democratic.

    Business Insider ^ | Josh Barro
    If Donald Trump arrives at the Republican National Convention with less than a majority of delegates bound to him, his message will be simple: I got way more votes than anyone else, and party insiders are conspiring against me to give the nomination to somebody else. This complaint will be true, it will be valid, and anti-Trump Republicans will dismiss it at their peril. There has been a weird epidemic of short-sighted schadenfreude among Republican insiders over the last week, as they have watched Trump's campaign blunder through the intricacies of delegate selection. It is true that Trump's campaign is...

    It's now likely Republicans are headed toward a contested convention in July. But they might be headed toward more than that the party could be on its way to an internal version of the 2000 election, the race in which the candidate who lost the popular vote won the presidency, leaving injured feelings and diminished faith in the legitimacy of the electoral system.* And it could be worse than that. The 2000 winner of the popular vote, Al Gore, lost the presidency because of the constitutional structure under which electors, not popular vote totals, determine who enters the White...

    Bill Clinton was impeached for two causes -- perjury and obstruction of justice. But the charges concerned a matter of personal conduct and were not deemed serious enough for Clinton to be removed from office, although he was disbarred by the state of Arkansas. Richard Nixon resigned from the presidency before almost certain impeachment over his coverup of the Watergate break-in, a farcically useless burglary of Democratic headquarters in an election that the Republicans were already winning by a landslide. Neither of these misdeeds, bad as they were, even remotely approach the magnitude of crimes for which Hillary Clinton is...

I think if its an open convention, its very likely it would be someone whos not currently running, Walker said. I mean, who knows. The one thing I qualify its like the qualifications you see on those ads you see for car dealerships. I think any of us who comment on this election have to qualify that almost every predictions been off, so its hard to predict anything, Walker added. Walkers own run...

  • Donald Trumps Working-Class Appeal Is Starting To Freak Out Labor Unions

    Over the course of five weeks, Working America, the non-union affiliate of the AFL-CIO labor federation, did extensive canvassing in union-dense, blue-collar areas of Pittsburgh and Cleveland. They called it a front porch focus group. The idea was simply to listen to let likely 2016 voters sound off about their thoughts and concerns headed into the presidential election. What they discovered, among other things, was a lot of support for Donald Trump, the GOP front-runner. For months, this enthusiastic backing of the obnoxious billionaire had generally baffled the chattering class not to mention the GOP and Democratic establishment....
  • Breaking Rubio allies drop lawsuit keeping Kasich from Pennsylvania presidential primary ballot

    03/16/2016 2:13:12 PM PDT · by Sybeck1 · 27 replies
    Despite the John Kasich campaign admitting they did not provide enough signatures to give Kasich legal access to the Pennsylvania primary ballot, the state law only keeps the candidate off the ballot if it is legally challenged. Previously, team Rubio in Pennsylvania filed such a challenge and Kasich was legally kept off ballot. Today the Rubio allies withdrew their petition (legal challenge). As a consequence Ohio Governor John Kasich will be allowed on the PA ballot despite not having met the signature threshold for placement.

    Townhall ^ | 3/16/16 | Guy Benson
    First, a few thoughts on last night's results, followed by a look at Cruz's remarks. Super Tuesday 3.0's big winner was Hillary Clinton. She dominated the delegate count, swept the night, and used her (grating, shouty) victory speech to focus her attention on Republican frontrunner Donald Trump -- the one Republican who's most likely to help solve some of her problems on the Left and among the so-called Obama coalition. She also witnessed the exit of Marco Rubio, who boasted some of the strongest general election fundamentals and head-to-head numbers of anyone in the race. His potential threat has been...

    Daily Caller ^ | 3/15/16 | Alex Pfeiffer
    An analysis released Tuesday by two think tanks shows how Donald Trump could win The White House with a single-digit increase in the share of the white vote. If the non-white vote for Democrats remains the same and Trump gains four more percent of the white vote, he would flip eight states that President Barack Obama carried in 2012, The New York Times reports. The study was done jointly by the Brookings Institution and The American Enterprise Institute. The Republican Partys autopsy after the 2012 election showed that the GOP presidential nominee should moderate his tone on immigration and social...

    If Donald Trump wins the Republican Party nomination, his path to the White House will run through this working-class city with a knack for picking presidents. No Republican has ever won the White House without Ohio. And nowhere better reflects the challenges and opportunities Trump faces in his 2016 presidential quest than Canton, a once-booming industrial city that, like Ohio and the rest of Americas rust belt, is going through profound economic and demographic change. Canton, a gritty northeastern Ohio city where the once-dominant steel industry has been in decline for 20 years, is the heart of Stark County, a...

    Contest after contest has shown Hillary Clinton has the overwhelming support of black voters in the 2016 Democratic primary but up against Donald Trump, the general election might be a different story. To be sure, nobody expects Trump or any GOP presidential candidate to win the majority of the black vote, which has been with Democrats since the mid-1930s. Clinton has every reason to believe most black voters sticking with her in the primary against Bernie Sanders would do so in a general election as well. However, analysts suggest that to consider the black vote a monolith for Clinton...

Specifically, Norpoth predicts that Trump has a 97 percent chance of beating Hillary Clinton and a 99 percent chance of beating Bernie Sanders. The predictions assume Trump will actually become the 2016 presidential nominee...

At the time of this writing, the two men added together don't equal the Trump vote in Nevada -- and that's even assuming their voters would hold, which...

    The headline reflects the moment my previous support for Ted Cruz (2011/2012), which evolved to concern about Senator Ted Cruz (2013/2014), turned to admitting Ted Cruz was a phoney. The date was Saturday, July 19th, 2014 – I remember it vividly because I noted in my journal “last straw in providing Cruz any benefit of doubt – done“. The week leading up to that weekend DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson appeared before an emergency congressional committee and stated he needed $4,000,000,000 (billion) in emergency appropriations to deal with the enormous “humanitarian crisis at the border“.
