  • Trump Thumps Merkel On Migrant Madness: ‘It’s The End Of Europe’

    02/11/2016 3:06:16 AM PST · by TigerClaws · 8 replies
    REUTERS – U.S. Republican presidential contender Donald Trump said German Chancellor Angela Merkel was wrong to let in thousands of migrants into Germany and that the refugee crisis could trigger revolutions and even the end of Europe. “I think Angela Merkel made a tragic mistake with the migrants,” Trump told French conservative weekly Valeurs Actuelles, which said it was the billionaire’s first in-depth campaign interview with European media. “If you don’t treat the situation competently and firmly, yes, it’s the end of Europe. You could face real revolutions,” Trump was quoted as saying, according to the French translation. The 69-year-old...

  • After Sanders' Big Win in New Hampshire, Establishment Figures Want to Scare You with Superdelegates

    02/11/2016 2:56:43 AM PST · by TigerClaws · 6 replies
    Bernie Sanders’ win in the New Hampshire primary Tuesday night came with some pretty impressive footnotes: 1. His margin of victory was the highest for a non-incumbent candidate in any state since JFK. 2. He won almost every demographic group—male, female, young, old, moderate, liberal, college educated, high school-educated—with the exception of voters making more than $200,000 per year. 3. He became the first Jewish candidate to win a state primary in U.S. history. 4. He became the first non-Christian candidate to win a state primary in U.S. history. Sanders isn’t one to emphasize his religious affiliation—his political beliefs make...

    The advertisement opens with Mr. Trump giving a thumbs-up, "approving this message," but becomes very critical very fast. A raspy voice alleges Mr. Cruz "talks from both sides of his mouth on amnesty" for undocumented immigrants, as a photograph of Mr. Cruz zooms to the foreground and an interview with Fox News plays in the background. "Cruz Challenged on Immigration Flip-Flop," the ad proclaims in white text, citing Fox News.

    Washington Post ^ | February 10, 2016
    THE STUNNINGLY handy wins by two anti-establishment candidates in the New Hampshire primary Tuesday are prompting conversation about similarities between New York businessman Donald Trump, the Republican victor, and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, the socialist victor on the Democratic side. The similarities are important - but the differences are more so. Both have positioned themselves as outsiders appealing to voters who believe the system, and the leaders of the two major parties, have failed them. The grievances they speak to are real: a sense that the economy has left too many people behind, that globalization and technological change are helping...

    The best hope of the Republican establishment just a week ago, Marco Rubio suddenly faces a path to his party's presidential nomination that could require a brokered national convention. That's according to Rubio's campaign manager, Terry Sullivan, who told The Associated Press that this week's disappointing performance in New Hampshire will extend the Republican nomination fight for another three months, if not longer. It's a worst-case scenario for Rubio and many Republican officials alike "We very easily could be looking at May -- or the convention," Sullivan said aboard Rubio's jet from New Hampshire to South Carolina Wednesday. "I would...

Wednesday during a town hall event in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, Bush claimed, “And Peyton Manning in the NFL I guess is adult in the room, right? So I kind of like that position these days, I never thought I would be the adult in the room.” “Now we just saw the Super Bowl, I know that you all probably, maybe had some leanings to Carolina,” Bush said. “I was for Denver...

    "This, more than his ideology, is why Trump genuinely scares me. There are places where I think his instincts are an improvement on the Republican field. He seems more dovish than neoconservatives like Marco Rubio, and less dismissive of the social safety net than libertarians like Rand Paul. But those candidates are checked by institutions and incentives that hold no sway over Trump; his temperament is so immature, his narcissism so clear, his political base so unique, his reactions so strange, that I honestly have no idea what he would do - or what he wouldn't do."

But we do now have some clue how many myths one of those candidates, Senator Ted Cruz, can fit into an eight-minute diatribe. At least six. When asked about climate change at recent hustings, Cruz has been delivering a stock set of answers from the Little Book of Climate Change Denial (not a real book). At one such event in New Hampshire, the representative from Texas...

    (CNN)The national spokesman for Ted Cruz's presidential campaign is calling the Donald Trump campaign "the Seinfeld candidacy," because as he puts it, "The whole campaign is about nothing." Rick Tyler told CNN's Erin Burnett that Trump says "nothing about immigration, nothing about job creation, nothing about what's going on in North Korea, nothing about ISIS. I mean this is amazing." Tyler said Cruz is running a campaign about conservative issues and that Trump fails to discuss the issues because he isn't a true conservative.

    Heidi Cruz misstated her husband's vote on a key and controversial trade provision last year in a radio interview this week. The issue of trade has become a hot one for both parties this cycle. Donald Trump's made the case that the United States is getting screwed on free trade -- that U.S. policies have ruined the wages for the American worker. In a radio interview on South Carolina's Vince Coakley Radio Program, Heidi Cruz argued free trade is a powerfully good force and that presidents should have increased powers to negotiate trade deals -- a policy that has become...

"The American military, it's the most advanced!" he exclaims. "NATO depends on the U.S. military. There's no need to believe the American military is getting weaker.

    Bernie Sanders delivered the second-biggest rout in New Hampshire Democratic primary history last night, besting Hillary Clinton by 22 percentage points. That's important, because it hands him a crushing victory, lots of momentum and money to help him staff up for a potentially long fight against Clinton. And with that huge win, one might think that Sanders would end up with the majority of delegates. But Clinton may very well wind up with more of them (or at least be closer in the delegate count than the proportion of the vote total). Here's why: There were 24 delegates to...

So the people have an obvious interest in restraining rulers who start acting destructively…that function now seems out of reach. Public life has largely been nationalized and internationalized, and discussion has—in spite of sniping and occasional guerilla attacks—been captured and pacified by mainstream scholars, pundits, and journalists.

    Remittances sent home by Mexicans working outside the country surpassed petroleum revenues in 2015 for the first time. There was a 4.75% increase in money sent from abroad, most of which comes from the U.S., to total US $24.8 billion last year, up from $23.6 billion in 2014, said the Bank of Mexico. An important factor in the increase in remittances is the jobs created by economic recovery in the U.S. Some 11 million Mexicans are believed to be living in the U.S. and many work in construction. Remittances, 97% of which are sent electronically, averaged $292 last year. We...

    02/10/2016 5:42:19 PM PST · by BlackFemaleArmyCaptain · 101 replies
    One of the cornerstones of Donald Trump's campaign has been the fact that millions of jobs have been lost to overseas industries because it is often too expensive to do business in America anymore. Many liberals have criticized Trump for these statements, but the Wall Street Journal recently reported that Ford's latest production move showed that Trump was exactly right. Ford planned to build a new assembly plant in Mexico in order to produce 500,000 more vehicles in Mexico than it currently does. Last year Ford's Mexican output was 433,000 vehicles, which translates to about 14 percent of its total...

    Huckabee also called Cruz's tactics "below the belt." Mike Huckabee is no longer running for president, but he is still criticizing Ted Cruz -- this time attacking Cruz's campaign for spreading a report on the night of the Iowa caucuses suggesting Ben Carson would be dropping out of the presidential race. "Ted Cruz apologized for his campaign spreading a false story that Ben Carson had dropped out of the race but he deflected blame to CNN," Huckabee said on his pay-per-view podcast this week.
