    Boy, the leaks just keep on coming. Seems that Rocky Top kicked over a rock and all sorts of noxious secrets are now slithering out from underneath. The Rocky Top Tipsters (www.rtptipline.com) have given us so much inside information, we are having to line up the stories like planes at the Atlanta airport. Here’s the latest: Unable to refute the facts of their conflicts and insider dealing, the state party staff and some officials have resorted to ad hominem attacks and threats. Their only defense has been to fall back on a narrow and dubious interpretation of the party by-laws....

Rick Sanchez argues with Republican Strategist Boris Epshteyn on the fallout (RIOT) following Donald Trump's Costa Mesa Rally last night. Contributor Dagen McDowell and the others condemn the rioter's violence, unequivocally. Sanchez twists Trump's words on immigration in a lame defense of La Raza instilled mob violence. (surprise-Not.) The news team believes that the out-of-control latino rioters will inspire even more Trump support.
  • GOP Elites Reaching 'Acceptance Phase' for Donald Trump

    NBC News ^ | Apr. 29, 2016 | Benjy Sarlin
    With Donald Trump's path to the nomination looking wider by the day, a number of top Republicans are signaling their willingness to support his candidacy — even some who have fiercely criticized him in the past. This softening opposition indicates that the GOP establishment is reaching the "acceptance stage" of the grieving process, even as Sen. Ted Cruz and his new running mate Carly Fiorina try to mount a last stand in Indiana. The shift reflects the intensity of loathing for Cruz among elements of the party as much as it does their begrudging acceptance of Trump.

I told myself that previous elections hadn’t necessarily been rigged—but then found evidence proving me wrong. I convinced myself that it didn’t mean this Democratic nomination was rigged — until I uncovered the truth. I am an ardent skeptic turned fervent believer. Over the course of this article, I will demonstrate that electoral fraud was committed favoring Hillary Clinton with a plethora of sources: exit poll data, statistics,...

    Burlingame, California (CNN) — Hundreds of demonstrators descended on the California Republican Convention Friday to protest Donald Trump ahead of his speech there. Protesters -- some of whom wore bandanas over their faces and carried Mexican flags -- blocked off the road in front of the Hyatt Regency here, forcing the GOP front-runner's motorcade to pull over along a concrete median outside the hotel's back entrance. Trump and his entourage got out and walked into the building. At one point, about two dozen protesters tried to rush barriers near the hotel. Police officers then rushed to the building's doors, successfully...

    U.S. Rep. Marlin Stutzman has said Republicans have a clear choice for their U.S. Senate candidate. U.S. Rep. Todd Young, Stutzman’s opponent in the May 3 primary election, is more than happy to go down that road. The candidates, their supporters and surrogates have spent recent months highlighting the differences between the two. Stutzman, R-3rd, is a farmer; Young, R-9th, is a former Marine. Stutzman is portrayed as fighting a broken system on Capitol Hill; Young is depicted as working within the system to advance legislation. Stutzman receives higher ratings from conservative advocacy groups; Young already has defeated Democratic Senate...

    (Delavan, WI) - "The revelation that Paul Ryan took $10,000 in campaign cash from Abbott Labs provides more strong evidence that the Speaker's votes in Congress are on the auction block and available to the highest bidder," said insurgent candidate Paul Nehlen early this morning of the 18-year incumbent he is challenging in Wisconsin's 1st Congressional District. Abbott Labs has been a strong proponent for further expansion of the H1B visa program.

    Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) criticized Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz for selecting former Hewlett-Packard executive Carly Fiorina as his running mate, arguing the pick shows the Texas senator has “no judgment whatsoever.” Fiorina challenged Boxer for her Senate seat in 2010, and lost the election by 10 points. Boxer effectively used Fiorina’s HP tenure against her, criticizing the former CEO for laying off thousands at the California-based company and moving many jobs overseas. The failed Senate campaign loomed large over Fiorina’s foray into the 2016 presidential race, which ended shortly after underwhelming performances in the Iowa caucus and New Hampshire...

This would disenfranchise an entire side of the election, so it provides an unfortunately heightened incentive for assassins. We don’t award assassins this prize at any other...

    Truncated title. Full title: Camille Paglia: Hillary Clinton’s Brand of Feminism ‘Defines Women as Perpetual Victims’ Could Cost Her Election Feminist provocateur Camille Paglia says Hillary Clinton’s adoption of a “blame-men-first” brand of feminism that “defines women as perpetual victims” who need protection and salvation from the government could be costly to her campaign. Writing at Salon, Paglia – the author of Glittering Images: A Journey Through Art from Egypt to Star Wars – asserts that Clinton adopted the “second-wave” brand of feminism – propagated by the “telegenic” Gloria Steinem, who stated, “A woman needs a man like a fish...

    Donald Trump would be “a danger to the United States and to the world” if elected president, according to Indiana’s largest newspaper, The Indianapolis Star. In an editorial published on Thursday, the newspaper widely condemned the Republican front-runner’s “simplistic proposals,” arguing he is unfit to occupy the Oval Office. “Trump has demonstrated repeatedly during the months-long campaign that he is wholly unsuited to serve as president,” the editorial states. “He’s offered simplistic proposals on national security, job creation, immigration, international trade and foreign affairs. He has sounded off with appalling comments about women and others. He’s appealed to voters’ worst...

    The protests outside Donald Trump's rally in Costa Mesa on Thursday night appear to point to an upcoming month of activism by Latinos and others as the GOP front-runner tries to seal the presidential nomination in the state. While the billionaire businessman has faced protests elsewhere, California could prove to be potent ground for demonstrators because of its large Latino population and Trump's negative comments about immigrants in this country illegally. A USC/Times poll found that 77% of Latinos in California have a negative view of Trump. Yet among Republicans, Trump is ahead in that poll and several others. Although...

    Hundreds of demonstrators filled the street outside the Orange County amphitheater where Donald Trump held a rally Thursday night, stomping on cars, hurling rocks at motorists and forcefully declaring their opposition to the Republican presidential candidate. Traffic came to a halt as a boisterous crowd walked in the roadway, some waving American and Mexican flags. Protesters smashed a window on at least one police cruiser, punctured the tires of a police sport utility vehicle, and at one point tried to flip a police car. About five police cars were damaged in total, police said, adding that some will require thousands...

    Real estate mogul Donald Trump has run an outsider's juggernaut campaign, the likes of which nobody has seen in modern politics. Democrats publicly say they are thrilled to face him in the general election. But, privately, they fret that the master marketer and media maestro is so unpredictable and so original and so fearless that they just might regret getting the match-up they had hoped for.

    On Wednesday, after his , Ted Cruz announced Carly Fiorina would be his running mate. According to our latest predictions, Carly may be the shortest termed VP candidate in US history. On Thursday, Cruz sycophant admitted the VP choice was a “desperate move” and a “last call” to save the campaign. RWW reported: Since Glenn Beck has transformed his daily radio program into little more than an arm of Cruz’s presidential operation, it was entirely predictable that he would kick off today’s program by conducting a softball interview with Fiorina, which he introduced by admitting that the campaign’s unusual move...
