    ‘His views are against ours’ Ted Cruz came to New York Wednesday talking about education, but he’s the one who got schooled. The lesson came from a group of Bronx high school students who told the Republican presidential candidate to stay away. Cruz was scheduled to speak at Bronx Lighthouse College Preparatory Academy until students wrote a letter to the principal asking her not to let Cruz come, prompting staffers to cancel the appearance. "We told her if he came here, we would schedule a walkout," said Destiny Domeneck, 16. "Most of us are immigrants or come from immigrant backgrounds....

    A Nebraska judge ruled Wednesday that the state violated its constitution when it allowed the governor to approve the route of the controversial Keystone XL pipeline, a decision that could significantly delay the $5.3 billion project. District Court judge Stephanie F. Stacy blocked Gov. Dave Heineman (R) and other defendants “from taking any action on the governor’s January 22, 2013 approval of the Keystone XL Pipeline route,” such as allowing land to be acquired by eminent domain for the project. Stacy concluded that the state legislature’s decision to take the siting power away from its Public Service Commission and give...

    Boston Suspects' Background Threatens To Derail Immigration Bill Some Republicans voice second thoughts about immigration reform legislation in light of the revelation that the Boston bombing suspects are ethnic Chechens who came to the U.S. from Russia. “Given the events of this week, it's important for us to understand the gaps and loopholes in our immigration system,” Sen. Charles E. Grassley of Iowa, the top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said at a hearing on the immigration reform bill. By Lisa Mascaro April 19, 2013 WASHINGTON — The background of the Boston bombing suspects quickly emerged Friday as a...
  • The Cain Train Last Stop

    Even before he dropped out of the race on Saturday (12/3), there was a gaggle of pundits predicting the demise of Herman Cain as a presidential candidate. ”He was never going to be the nominee anyway,” claimed Cokie Roberts of ABC news. I saw some unknown lib spinster on FOX Friday afternoon saying the same thing. He was the sole front-runner for a time. Why would allegedly intelligent people say such things? A couple of reasons: 1. They can’t be proven wrong now that scandal has sent him running and 2. They know darn well he had great conservative ideas...
