  • Let The Speculation Begin Donald Trumps Vice-President

    The Conservative Treehouse ^ | 5-5-2016 | sundance
    Many people kept asking for an opinion on possibilities for a Trump VP, and/or discussion about a potential Trump VP. We’ve been very reluctant to even engage on the topic; and I still am. There is an almost exponential myriad of qualifications and needs given the current status of the presidential contest.Candidate Donald Trump has mentioned he would prefer to bring on a partner who is familiar with legislative constructs and pathways. With little to go on, and accepting the choice will be intensely vetted by Donald Trump, here’s a gut sense about the “type of person” who might...

    AND THEN THERE WAS THE ONE May 4, 2016 A guy just won the Republican nomination for president by spending no money, hiring no pollsters, running virtually no TV ads, and just saying what he truly believed no matter how many times people told him he couldn't say that. I always hoped I'd see this once before I died. It's like to going to Mecca, for Americans. Pay attention, because it's the last time we're going to see it in our lifetimes.

  • Whistleblower Speaks Out About Food Stamp Fraud

    KOB4 ^ | 05/02/2016 | Ryan Luby
    There are mounting concerns about how the state processes food stamps. State workers say their bosses ordered them to falsify records, which left the poorest New Mexicans without the help they need. One state whistleblower who testified in federal court spoke with the 4 Investigates team about claims of a cover-up. Angela Dominguez works for the Human Services Department as a case processor for food stamps, and she and other case workers from all across the state say they were ordered to find ways to make emergency food stamp cases into non-emergencies. Whatever it would take to not make the...

    Presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump is optimistic about his chances of winning a general election match-up versus Hillary Clinton because she hasnt been vetted before, spokeswoman Katrina Pierson said Wednesday. Oh, absolutely, Pierson said in response to a question about Trumps enthusiasm for facing Clinton in November. Mainly because Hillary Clinton has never been truly vetted before. Particularly by the media, she said to MSNBCs Tamron Hall. How many times has Hillary Clinton been asked about the specific role in Benghazi outside of the testimony? Pierson asked.

    An anonymous group of conservative billionaires is ready to place their bets on a man dubbed Mad Dog, hoping to draft him into the presidential race to confront Donald Trump. Think of it as a Plan B should Trump be nominated by the Republican Party in Cleveland: swing behind retired U.S. Marine Corps Gen. James Mattis and press him into service yet again as a third-party candidate. Mattis is the former commander of Central Command, which includes the strife-afflicted conflict zones of the Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asia, and has developed a reputation among troops as a general...

The lessons learned will effect the way politicians run their campaigns for decades.

    The historic Manhattan cathedral that was gutted in a massive fire was one of four Christian Orthodox churches to go up in flames on Orthodox Easter Sunday sparking fears of a coordinated attack on the religion. While FDNY officials said the blaze at the Serbian Orthodox Cathedral of St. Sava on West 25th Street does not appear suspicious, members of the Orthodox community have doubts. They are worried that the blaze along with church fires in Australia and Russia were set in retaliation for the religions role in blocking the canonization of Croatian Nazi supporter Cardinal Aloysius...

He places American nationalism first which I think we desperately need. Im tired of being told we have to phony agreements and phony efforts...

    Statistician and FiveThirtyEight founder Nate Silver famously used big data and his mathematical models to predict all 50 state outcomes in the 2012 general election, somehow besting his mark of 49 during the 2008 cycle. The one he got wrong that year: Indiana, which went to Barack Obama by a 0.1 percent margin. For all the numbers and polls and graphs that likely passed Silvers desk in the weeks prior to that November, the famed prognosticator needed only to focus on a 403-square mile plot of land along the road between Indianapolis and St. Louis. There, the roughly 108,000 citizens...

    As Donald Trump reminded the world Tuesday morning, the Republican Party is on the verge of nominating a conspiracy theorist who regularly uses debunked Internet and tabloid rumors to smear his enemies. In the latest case, Trump seized on a ludicrously thin-sourced National Enquirer story to insinuate Sen. Ted Cruzs father, Rafael Cruz, was involved in the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy. His father was with Lee Harvey Oswald prior to Oswalds being, you know, shot, Trump told Fox News over the phone. I mean, the whole thing is ridiculous.

    A group of undergraduate professors at George Mason University are leading the charge to oppose renaming the law school after late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. A public Virginia university, GMU received a $30,000,000 pledge to rename the law school. However, the George Mason faculty senate -- which is not a law school body -- passed a resolution opposing the name change. The reasons the GMU faculty senate opposed the well-funded name change included the following: The memorializing of a Supreme Court Justice who was a significant contributor to the polarized climate in this country that runs counter to...

    Ted Cruz -- attempting to hold on to the narrowing possibility that he can wrest the GOP nomination away from front-runner Donald Trump -- faces a crucial Indiana primary on Tuesday. Meanwhile, and perhaps ominously for Cruz, he has run into headwinds among Republicans at the national level. His image has essentially nosedived over the past week or two, while Trump's image has become more positive. Republicans' views of Cruz are now the worst in Gallup's history of tracking the Texas senator. His image among Republicans and Republican-leaning independents is at 39% favorable and 45% unfavorable, based on April 24-30...

The chemical, which is used in the production of weapons, was hidden in bags of salt. Four tons would have allowed Hamas or other terror groups to create hundreds of long-range rockets. About a week before Passover, a shipment labeled as 40 tons of salt reached the Nitzana crossing, which is used for transporting goods between Egypt and both Israel and Gaza.

    Politicians should take careful note of the discontent in the street, as one woman from Dimona has as much voting power as the Prime Minister himself. She now represents many of the populations feelings about how a young soldier has been dealt with. Those who wish to stay in power and those who wish to head a motivated army should have their ears to the ground instead of blaming extremist right-wing organisations and "twisted ideology.". A walk down the street in one of Israels major cities turned up the following comments voiced loudly in plain hearing range of everyone around:...

    IA Director John Brennan said Sunday that releasing the 28 classified pages from the 9/11 Commission report would be a mistake because they contain inaccurate, un-vetted information that could be used to tie Saudi Arabia to the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.

He said information in the 28 pages hasn't been vetted or corroborated, adding that releasing the information would give ammunition to those who want to tie the terror...

Gone, too, are the mocking references to 'Putie.' And gone are the judgments about others' patriotism." Schultz's show, "now features Putin-friendly discussions about the failings of U.S. policy in the Middle East, America's 'bloated' defense budget and the futility of NATO strategy," his report added.peaking at various points on RT in recent months, Schultz has said that Trump...

    Summary Targets bathroom policy is scaring away many customers. Over 1 million people have signed a pledge not to shop at Target. This is likely to have a negative impact on sales and the stock price. I think Target's (NYSE:TGT) bathroom policy is a serious mistake from a business standpoint. The policy is scaring away customers, which is likely to lead to sales declines and a falling stock price. Target recently went public with its bathroom policy which states:
