    I awoke at 4 a.m. I looked at the ceiling and said to myself, “Did I really see that? Did he really win?”   Being on the Left Coast it was easy to stay up to see Donald Trump declared President-Elect of the United States.  Ms. Clinton had called and conceded and Pennsylvania had been universally declared as another brick gone from the blue wall. I am writing this on an airplane en route out of the country on Wednesday morning. My wife and I are on a mini-vacation to serve two purposes.  First, to relax after this brutal election. ...

    Believe, people! If the Cubbies can break a 108 year curse, Trump can break the eight year curse of Obama. To paraphrase carolann from last night: Brexit, the Cubs, Trump – three events people said would never happen...but they did…and will!And this year might also end the 25 year curse of the Clintons. NO REALLY, I’M SERIOUS THIS TIME! New evidence regarding the collusion between Clinton Inc., the Department of Justice and the Department of State continues to pour in. And apparently it pours out as well: Sources say 99% chance foreign intel agencies accessed Clinton’s private server. CTH There...

    RUSH: This is from America's Newsroom this morning on Fox. They had a sports reporter there by the name of Jared Max. He was talking about the World Series. Question: "The series has gotten an enormous amount of hype as being historic and exciting for the entire Midwest and the rest of the country. How do you think it's looking for so far on that measure," Jared? MAX: We're talking so much every week about numbers down to the NFL. You know, several years ago people said, "America's pastime? No, the NFL rules the league." Well, NFL ratings are down...

    If the Cubbies can shake off a 71 year old curse and an onslaught of naysayers to win the National League pennant to advance to the World Series than Donald J Trump can win the presidency!Sure, the real battle is still ahead for both of them, butt at the beginning of the season nobody thought either of them had chance of making it to the big dance. And yet here they are, improbables both, battling for a yuge win for their long suffering fans. The Chicago Cubs will do battle with the Indians (!?!) and Trump will fight against Hillary,...

    Waterfalls have stopped falling, the sun rose in the south and pigs are taking to the air. The world is no longer recognizable. Why do I say that? Because the Chicago Cubs are the best baseball team on earth, and the St. Louis Cardinals are watching the postseason from their Barcaloungers. It's not natural, it's not explainable and, in my mind, it's not welcome. Despite living for the past 36 years in the Chicago area, despite working for a company that once owned the Cubs and despite being surrounded by Cubs fans, I just can't root for them -- or...

    So Conor Gillaspie in 2016 is Marco Scutaro from 2012 or Travis Ishikawa from 2014 or Cody Ross from 2010, at least for one enormous Wild-Card game and that means it could go on and on again… And Madison Bumgarner in 2016 is… Madison Bumgarner, the perpetual postseason legend. That’s a two-paragraph summary of the Giants’ scintillating 3-0 Wild-Card victory over the Mets tonight, and yes, obviously, the patterns and connections from the previous three Giants postseason trips are impossible to ignore. You know who probably understands this better than anybody? That’d be the Cubs, who now face the Giants...

    RNC Meeting Spring News 2016 and super PAC research | April 24, 2016 | Self - RNC spring convention observation
    In addition to "grass-roots" campaign workers, there are at least eight Super PACs backed by 'shadow elites' who are driven to defeat Donald Trump and they are banking on Ted Cruz. At least one of these super PAC leaders, Katie Packer of OPP, met behind closed doors at the RNC Spring Meeting this week in Florida. Packer states that a republican candidate should "uphold orthodox GOP ideology." This smacks of irony given her past allegiance with Romney/Ryan and Ryan's inability to uphold GOP principles as Speaker of the House. The super PACs are calling, texting, emailing, lobbying, and all-out wining...

    Speaker of the House Paul Ryan is heading up a National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) fundraiser in New York on April 25th. However, the venue of the fundraiser is raising some eyebrows: For those who might not know, the “Ricketts Family” are the primary donors to a Super-PAC specifically created to block Donald Trump from winning the GOP nomination. Billionaire family Joe and Marlene Ricketts, owners of the Chicago Cubs, have recently given $5,000,000.oo to Katie Packer who heads “Our Principles PAC“, an organization created exclusively to defeat Donald Trump. Katie Packer recently outlined what they are doing with the...

    Thanks to the candidacy of Donald Trump the financial intersection of money and political opinion, as guided by the monetary motives therein, has brought some amazing revelations to the surface. These financial/media relationships have largely, and historically, remained hidden. They have damned sure never been publicly, clearly, and regularly stated so the consuming audience would know the presentation was fraught with financial conflict.

    Thanks to the candidacy of Donald Trump the financial intersection of money and political opinion, as guided by the monetary motives therein, has brought some amazing revelations to the surface. These financial/media relationships have largely, and historically, remained hidden. They have damned sure never been publicly, clearly, and regularly stated so the consuming audience would know the presentation was fraught with financial conflict. So it perhaps shouldn’t come as a surprise to find out that Eric Errickson’s media venture “The Resurgent“, is taking Super-PAC money from the (formerly Scott Walker advocates and financial backers) Ricketts family of Wisconsin who fund...

    Late at night this month, the pastor’s phone beeped with a text message from an anguished parishioner. Andre Taylor, the church member’s great-nephew, had been shot and killed. “Dre had just turned 16,” the message on the Rev. Ira Acree’s phone read. “I think that it’s time to call for action and solicit help, have the National Guard to take over and patrol the Chicago streets.” Four days earlier, another text had appeared. A different parishioner’s granddaughter, Daysha Wright, a 21-year-old nursing student, had been shot to death in a car, leaving a 2-year-old son. At his desk at Greater...

    WATCH: New Bush/Romney Operatives Ad Features Women Reading Controversial Trump Quotes A new video created by the ‘Our Principles PAC’ features a number of female actors reading controversial quotes from U.S. Republican front runner Donald Trump, timed to coincide with voting in ‘Super Tuesday 2’, where millions of Americans will cast their votes across the states of Florida, Illinois, Missouri, North Carolina and Ohio. The advertisement, which was first shown on CNN last night, features quotes from Mr. Trump such as jokes from the Howard Stern show, as well as times that he has called individual women “bimbos”, “dogs” and...

    The Anti Trump "War on Women" ad, being given tons of free air time by all the cable news channels, is from "Our Principles Pac", a Pac tied to Mitt Romney, and funded primarily by Marlene Ricketts. Marlene Ricketts is the owner of the Chicago Cubs, and mother of the current Nebraska Governor, Pete Ricketts. Her Husband, Joe Ricketts, is the founder of TD Ameritrade. http://www.inquisitr.com/2817315/marlene-ricketts-mystery-anti-donald-trump-donor-revealed-as-chicago-cubs-owner/ https://ballotpedia.org/Our_Principles_PAC

    John Kasich on Tuesday said he's "very concerned" by Donald Trump’s rhetoric toward women — a comment that comes a day after an anti-Trump super PAC released an ad that shows a series of women using the New York billionaire’s words against him. "I just saw a commercial, I guess, last night of these comments that were made about women," Kasich told reporters after voting for himself at a precinct in Westerville, Ohio. "I have two daughters. They see this stuff. What do you think they think? We'll have more to say about that."

    The media obsession with “dirty tricks” by Sen. Ted Cruz stands in stark contrast to the benign neglect of the slash and burn tactics of GOP frontrunner Donald Trump. The media seems to be treating Trump’s slanders and threats the way they coddled Vice President Joe Biden, with the chattering class seemingly uttering in unison, “Oh, that’s just The Donald.” As Sean Hannity noted on his Twitter feed, Trump tweeted recently a version of his “don’t mess with me” mantra, summing up his modus operandi very concisely: “I’m very proud of this record. Wouldn’t this be good to have for...
