    Good luck getting back into the convention through the security lines! Dane Waters, the co-founder of a group demanding that delegates have the right to unbind themselves from the results of the primaries, tells MSNBC’s Jacob Soboroff that Delegates Unbound plan to stage protests from the convention floor next week in Cleveland. They may even walk out of the convention, although that sounds like much of the rest of the Trump opposition planning — a gesture without a real plan: [VIDEO] “There will be some form of protest,” Waters tells Soboroff, which isn’t exactly a surprise. Some of the delegates...

    Kate McKinnon's character in Ghostbusters is gay, the film's director has confirmed. Speaking to The Daily Beast, director Paul Feig played it coy, before admitting the comedian's character was a lesbian. The actress - who is the first openly gay female SNL star - plays wacky inventor Jillian Holtzmann in the highly-anticipated reboot, which opened on Friday and also stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig and Leslie Jones. Asked if Kate's flirty character was gay, Paul answered: 'What do you think?' before nodding yes, the website reports. 'I hate to be coy about it,' the 53-year-old said. 'But when you're dealing...

    Republican presidential contender Ted Cruz has tapped former technology executive Carly Fiorina as his running mate in the race for the White House. The Texas senator plans to formally unveil his pick for vice president Wednesday afternoon in Indianapolis. That's according to a Republican with direct knowledge of the plan, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized speak before the official announcement. Cruz is trying to generate momentum for his struggling campaign. GOP front-runner Donald Trump swept primaries in five Northeastern states on Tuesday. Cruz has been mathematically eliminated from winning enough delegates to clinch the Republican...

    U.S. Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz said he will make a major announcement at 4 p.m. on Wednesday but gave no other details. Cruz's campaign has begun hinting that he could name a vice presidential running mate as soon as this week, a move that would seek to consolidate more Republican support and create an image that he will be the nominee. Former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, who made a failed presidential bid, is among the potential picks being vetted. Donald Trump, pressing his point that he views the nominating race as essentially finished, criticized that as a potential...

    At a campaign rally on the eve of the New York primary, Donald Trump read aloud an emotional testimonial on what he considers "New York values" and mistakenly said 7-Eleven instead of 9/11. "I wrote this out, and it's very close to my heart--because I was down there, and I watched our police and our firemen down on 7-Eleven, down at the World Trade Center, right after it came down, and I saw the greatest people I've ever seen in action," Trump said at a rally near the Buffalo waterfront on Monday evening, without stopping to correct himself. "I saw...

    The Republican establishment is sending in the cavalry for Ted Cruz, the latest unexpected twist in a presidential race that has defied all expectations. Many prominent members of the GOP establishment intensely dislike Cruz. But they now acknowledge that he is the best option — perhaps the only option — to deny Donald Trumptheir party’s nomination. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush jumped on the bandwagon on Wednesday with a surprise endorsement of Cruz, describing the Texas senator as “a consistent, principled conservative” in a Facebook post. Bush’s admiration for Cruz was noticeably lacking during the Floridian’s own run for the...

    Vladimir Lenin said, “There are no morals in politics; there is only expedience. A scoundrel may be of use to us just because he is a scoundrel.” I can’t think of a better description of Ted Cruz’s relationship with the DC-Wall Street Establishment – Cruz being the scoundrel of course. Cruz’s claim of not being a tool of the political elite is like Bill Clinton telling the world, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.” Webster’s definition of a scoundrel is a dishonest or unscrupulous person, and Cruz has become quite adroit at saying one thing while his...

    Donald Trump: “I like the mandate.” Donald Trump has often promised to repeal the “disaster” that is Obamacare and he’s right, it is a disaster.But at Thursday night’s CNN Republican Presidential Town Hall in South Carolina, Donald Trump embraced what is easily the worst part of Obamacare, the anti-free market “individual mandate” which forces Americans to buy only government-approved health care insurance, whether they want to or not.To justify his support for the Obamacare mandate, Donald Trump uses leftist talking points of not wanting people to “die in the streets,” as if they has ever happened in America — before...

    MANCHESTER, N.H. - Donald Trump may have come out of New Hampshire with the victory, but Sen. Ted Cruz has emerged as the Republican front-runner. Though Trump's victory in New Hampshire was no doubt impressive, the electorate of independent voters and super high turnout was tailor-made for him, whereas Cruz didn't put substantial effort into winning the state - where very conservative candidates don't typically do as well. He is currently in position to win third here, with votes still outstanding. As the race moves to South Carolina, however, Cruz has a ground game in place and the electorate is...

    Tea Party-backed Senate candidate Ted Cruz points with pride to the army of small conservative donors supporting him. But his largest longtime contributor is a gay billionaire who supports same-sex marriage and marijuana legalization, campaign finance filings show. Peter Thiel, a German-born hedge fund manager and founder of the online payment system PayPal, gave Cruz $251,000 in 2009 for his aborted run for attorney general. The money represented 19 percent of the total raised for that campaign, which Cruz ended after Attorney General Greg Abbott decided to run for re-election. Thiel’s political and financial support for gay rights and legal...

Ted Cruz (R-TX) 97%, one of the participants in last night debate, for his stated on reasoning for his eligibility to run for president of the United States. According to Tribe, Cruz applies a double standard to his interpretation of the Constitution, to which he deemed Cruz to be a "constitutional opportunist" and a "hypocrite." "I've done a lot of historical research on it, and so have a lot of other people, and the best evidence seems to be that what they meant...

    Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz was born in Canada; he is not a "natural born citizen," and he is not eligible to be president. And this is an issue that isn't going away, contrary to The Sacramento Bee's assertion, ("Trump's 'birther' lunacy, the sequel," Editorials, Jan. 7) The Constitution is very precise: "No person except a natural born citizen ... shall be eligible to the office of President." The founders knew what they meant. John Jay, later the first chief justice of the United States, wrote: "the commander in chief of the American army shall not be given to, nor...

    History will remember 2015 as the year when The Republican Party As We Knew It was destroyed by Donald Trump. An entity called the GOP will survive — but can never be the same. Am I overstating Trump's impact, given that not a single vote has been cast? Hardly. I'm not sure it's possible to exaggerate how the Trump phenomenon has torn the party apart, revealing a chasm between establishment and base that is far too wide to bridge with stale Reagan-era rhetoric. Can you picture the Trump legions meekly falling in line behind Jeb Bush or Sen. Marco Rubio...

    With five debates down, the GOP primary continues to excite. Donald Trump has finally committed to the GOP, Ted Cruz is moving up quickly, Marco Rubio is holding steady, and the Iowa caucus six weeks away. But the contest has so far failed to identify a real frontrunner. Here's why. Contrary to media stereotyping, the GOP is indeed a big tent. It draws together three distinct views of America, public policy, and the role of government: 1) nationalist, 2) globalist, and 3) moralist. Each of these factions is conducting its own primary, with an aggregate effect that is confounding pundits...

    Even at the center of the Beltway’s echo chamber, the preoccupation with a presidential election almost two years away is starting to sound a bit crazy. So maybe the best antidote is to start talking about an important political occasion more than five years in the future. It’s the next census, on April Fools’ Day 2020. Just a handful of the numbers will have a significant effect on the congressional power structure, most importantly whether Democrats gain a better shot in the next decade at controlling the House.

    Well before the Ebola virus was brought to the U.S. by a man traveling from Liberia, it was wreaking havoc in the West African country, where nearly 2,000 people have died during the worst Ebola outbreak in history. Now, some doctors in that country are trying new ways of treating Ebola-infected patients. Gorbee Logan, a doctor in rural Liberia, has given at least 15 Ebola patients lamivudine, which is considered a long-term and effective drug to treat HIV patients. All but two of them survived, Logan told CNN last week. Since that interview, Logan has been in contact with Anthony...

As a radio host, McDaniel had once joked about a candidate "using her boobies" to run for office. Allies of Sen. Thad Cochran found this potentially offensive enough to move votes; I pedantically pointed out that the candidate in question, 2006 Alabama Libertarian Party hopeful Loretta Nall, literally did talk about her endowments on the trail and in earned media. One lost primary later, one week before the decisive runoff, Thad Cochran's campaign is returning to the well. After...

But he said his younger staff members found it funny, prompting him to release the video. The...

    The Obamacare recriminations are underway. Stuck with an unpopular law whose launch has been an unmitigated disaster, the Democratic Party has morphed from a ruthless, unified political machine to a frantic, zig-zagging tornado of blame. The White House would like you to know that the Department of Health and Human Services was chiefly responsible for the implementation process. HHS counters that the White House ultimately runs the show, and that Sec. Kathleen Sebelius' hands were effectively tied by her relative lack of power. Some Democrats are blaming the private sector contractors who were brought in to help craft healthcare.gov (conveniently...

Three days later, the Register endorsed Mitt Romney — the first Republican the paper has backed in 40 years.

To understand why, let's count the ways in which Windows 8 is best.1. Tablet-laptop convergence Laptops and tablets are converging. And only Microsoft has an OS that's fit for that coming unification of devices.Apple has no convergence strategy at this time. That's because it fiercely guards product-specific profit streams and just doesn't go in for making things that cannibalise its own sales.So, Mac Mini is hobbled...

It’s common knowledge that Mitt Romney joined the Salt Lake City Olympic Committee in 1999. The story of Romney’s ultimately successful efforts to turn that Olympics around, avoiding disaster and finishing strong with a gangbusters winter games in 2000, forms the backbone of Romney’s fix-it man resume.

Gingrich aides hope forming a predetermined ticket with Perry will unite the evangelical, Tea Party and very conservative voters that make up the core of the GOP. As discussions got underway, two senior aides to Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who dropped out of the race and endorsed Gingrich, had not heard of the potential ticket and seemed dismissive.

    MIAMI — Facing the unthinkable here just seven days ago — a second loss in a row to Newt Gingrich — Mitt Romney’s campaign team hatched a two-part plan to win in Florida: make Newt mad and Mitt meaner. [snip] If Mr. Romney does win here on Tuesday, it will have been through a blistering and unrelenting series of attacks. His campaign has pressed everything at its disposal into service to eviscerate Mr. Gingrich, painting him as an erratic, unreliable Washington insider in mailings and television advertisements, at two critical debates here (where his team made sure Mr. Romney had...

    It’s now a three-way race before voting begins for the Republican presidential nomination. as either Newt Gringrich, Mitt Romney, or Rick Perry will be the GOP standard-bearer to challenge President Obama. The same pundits that have confidently miscalled the GOP race all along are now declaring it’s a two-way race between former Speaker Newt Gingrich and former Governor Mitt Romney. They’re wrong. Either man might be the nominee, but not necessarily. Romney is the former frontrunner. He’s educated, polished, and has tremendous private-sector success and some high-level public experience. He even has a picturesque family. But a majority of Republican...
  • Revealed: Cain describes hand gesture that led to harassment claim

    "Cain told van Susteren that he remembered one woman who was a writer in the Association’s communications department. “I can’t even remember her name, but I do remember the formal allegation she made in terms of sexual harassment,” Cain said. “I turned it over to my general counsel and one of the ladies that worked for me, the woman in charge of human resources. They did investigate…and it was found to be baseless.” "Van Susteren asked Cain how often he saw the woman. “I might see her in the office because her office was on the same floor as my...

    At the same time that the Obama campaign has doubled down in its efforts to woo millennials, the president himself has made a point to pander to loan-burdened college graduates. He first announced his plans to help students pay off their loans as a part of his budget proposals — but, in the furor of the Occupy Wall Street protests, he’s seen fit to promote them more intentionally.Right now, graduates enrolled in the federal government’s student loan Income-Based Repayment Plan make monthly payments of 15 percent of their discretionary income — and all debt is forgiven after 25 years. Congress...

    On Friday Rick Perry delivers his first major policy address, unveiling an aggressive energy and jobs plan. It will no doubt be good. It will no doubt address serious problems. It will no doubt be ignored. That's because, unfortunately for Mr. Perry, drilling isn't the energy topic du jour. The buzz is the bankrupt Solyndra, which is why the only energy question that came to Mr. Perry at Tuesday's New Hampshire debate was this: How, exactly, is his state's vaunted "Emerging Technology Fund"—which has dumped some 200 million taxpayer dollars into private companies—any different from Obama programs that subsidized the...

    Reporting from Costa Mesa— Michele Bachmann, struggling to regain her footing in the GOP presidential contest, Friday assailed rival Rick Perry, saying he abused his power as governor of Texas and rewarded political donors in a manner similar to President Obama. (snip) She compared it to the federal controversy unfolding around Solyndra, a solar equipment maker that received a $535-million federal loan guarantee and which went bankrupt last month. Republicans have suggested that the guarantee was pushed by the White House to reward a major campaign donor with ties to Solyndra's biggest shareholder, a charge the Obama administration denies. Bachmann...

    Full text of Michele Bachmann’s remarks, as provided by her office, in response to President Obama’s speech tonight: Unfortunately, it seems, every time the President speaks, his policies have cost the American people jobs and future prosperity. Tonight the President under the veil of one of the most sacred deliberative forums, a joint session of Congress, delivered another political speech where he doubled down on more of the same policies that are killing the economy. Mr. President, what among your proposals was new? What here hasn’t already been tried and failed before? While the President’s speech comes on the heels...
