    Attacks On Trump Didn't Slow Him Down In The Primaries. America's Another Story By David Lauter Last night, after his triumphs in more GOP primaries, Donald Trump reveled in the ineffectiveness of the attacks against him. “I don’t think I’ve ever had so many horrible, horrible things said about me in one week … but that’s OK,” Trump said in his news conference from his Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter, Fla. “I want to thank the special interests and the lobbyists, because they obviously did something to drive these numbers.” There's no question that he's right about the primaries...

    If you want to disbelieve this because it’s coming from HuffPo, feel free. I’m inclined to disbelieve it — not because of the source but because it cannot possibly be true that the competition failed to take Trump seriously even after his poll lead persisted throughout the fall and winter. Yet the evidence is compelling. As Sam Stein notes, you’re more likely to find basic oppo stuff on Trump, like his dubious “opposition” to the Iraq war and his sex chats with Howard Stern, on BuzzFeed than you are in a Cruz or Rubio campaign ad. If Republicans had that...

    From now on, if you want to hear how Cruz is an unlikable illegal immigrant from Canada with a nasty disposition who cheated Ben Carson, has run wild like a “maniac” in the Senate, is on the take from Goldman Sachs, and, by the way, is a “pussy,” you’ll have to settle for watching Trump’s rallies or one of his 35 interviews a day on cable news. When it comes to ads, he’s all about positivity. On Tuesday, Donald J. Trump's campaign started running a negative ad in South Carolina against Senator Ted Cruz that was searing, describing the winner...

    Here’s an astonishing statistic; more than 30pc of all government debt in the eurozone – around €2 trillion of securities in total – is trading on a negative interest rate. With the advent of European Central Bank quantitative easing, what began four months ago when 10-year Swiss yields turned negative for the first time has snowballed into a veritable avalanche of negative rates across European government bond markets. In the hunt for apparently “safe assets”, investors have thrown caution to the wind, and collectively determined to pay governments for the privilege of lending to them. On a country by country...

RBC TO CHARGE NEGATIVE INTEREST ON EURO-DENOMINATED BALANCES — Russian Market (@russian_market) January 21, 2015 Opinion: Think negative interest rates can’t happen here? Think again In the last week, the markets have had to get used to the idea of the negative interest rate, where you actually get charged for keeping money in the bank rather than going out and spending it. So far, that is restricted to two relatively small economies, both of which are struggling with the likely launch of a massive program of quantitative easing this week in the eurozone. But what...

    Investors are so nervous that they are basically willing to lose money when they buy some government bonds. It's part of the latest fad in finance that's all the rage: "going negative." The yields on government bonds in Europe and Japan have dipped into the uncharted waters of negative territory. That means buyers of those bonds are essentially taking a loss just to hold onto those assets. They think their money is better off losing a few cents than putting it elsewhere. "It's basically a fee for fear," said Nicholas Colas, chief market strategist at ConvergEx. "Fear of deflation, fear...

    COLUMBUS, Ohio - Columbus Public Health confirms a person is undergoing testing and has been quarantined for the deadly Ebola virus. A spokesperson says they’re working with the CDC to learn the preliminary results of those tests. CPH says the person recently traveled to West Africa, where an outbreak has left nearly 900 people dead. The virus can be transmitted through close contact with the blood, secretions, organs or other bodily fluids of infected animals. According to the CDC, symptoms include sudden onset of fever, intense weakness, muscle pain, headache and sore throat. This is followed by vomiting, diarrhea, rash,...

    How bad is Europe’s economic climate? Switzerland, Germany and Denmark have negative 2 year sovereign yields. This means that investors are paying the governments to store their funds! Switzerland has been in negative territory for a while. Note the red line that is off the chart! Germany, the European “Big Dog,” has recently joined the negative yield club. And the Netherlands, where they serve mayonnaise on their french fries (I tried it), has also recently joined the negative yield club. And these are NOMINAL yields.

    One thing about Twitter is that it lends itself to quantitative analysis. Over a short time, it can convey a snapshot of how a thin but important slice of the public is reacting to events. It seems especially noteworthy that Barack Obama, who famously marshaled social media in support of his 2008 campaign, has now become something of a laughingstock on Twitter. The Hill does the math with respect to Obama’s recent bus trip through the Midwest: Obama’s Midwest tour last week prompted more criticism and ridicule than support on Twitter, according to this week’s Hill Hexagon. … An analysis...

    The U.S. Treasury Department on Monday sold securities that fetched a negative yield for the first time, implying investors are willing to pay the government to own its debt. This is a milestone in the current rock-bottom interest rate environment, as the Federal Reserve is widely expected next week to announce it will buy more Treasuries to jump-start a sluggish economy. Typically, investors buy a new Treasury bond at "par" or $100. At Monday's $10 billion auction of five-year Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS), they paid more than $105

    Early on in life, kids are taught the concepts of positive and negative in science. They learn about positive and negative poles on magnets and positive and negative terminals on batteries. By junior high school, kids are introduced to positive and negative numbers in mathematics. Unfortunately, few schools teach the concepts of positive and negative as they pertain to civics and government. Understanding positive and negative law and government is the most life-impacting positive/negative polarity of all. It is the fundamental difference between oppression and freedom. Negative law tells us what we may not do; positive law tells us what...

The old happy warrior side of Mr. McCain has been eclipsed a bit lately by a much more aggressive, and more negative, Mr. McCain who hammers Mr. Obama repeatedly on policy differences, experience and trustworthiness. By doing so, Mr. McCain is clearly trying to sow doubts about his younger opponent, and bring him down a...

Hillary Clinton knew what had been printed in the bulletin at Obama's church, and Obama knew the details of Bill Clinton's pardons. As Sen. Obama defended himself against elitism charges, he was clever enough to sneak in a reference to Hillary Clinton's famous 1992 line about how she didn't much bake cookies. This to prove that Yale-educated lawyers have just as much out-of-touch snob baggage as Harvard-educated lawyers do. Neither candidate had read up on the D.C. gun ban before the Supreme Court—because that way, they...

    A new public opinion poll indicates Americans are becoming increasingly dissatisfied with the course of the war in Iraq. In a poll conducted by CNN, USA Today, and the Gallup organization, one-third of those surveyed said the United States should withdraw all troops from Iraq. That is the highest percentage calling for a full withdrawal since Gallup began asking the question in August 2003. The poll of 1004 adults, taken Friday through Sunday, also found that 57 percent of Americans feel the war has made them "less safe" from terrorism. Fifty-four percent of those surveyed said the United States made...

Without embarrassment, their speeches and writings bounce around with the day's headlines. Who cares? They're just a bunch of talking heads anyway. And, with the expansion of choices in media, people are able to choose which ones reinforce their own dispositions. Surveys show that supporters tend to watch Fox, and opponents tend to watch CNN.

    A bitter-sounding Sen. John Kerry dismissed the historic Iraqi election on Sunday, warning Americans not to "overhype" the watershed event. "No one in the United States should try to overhype this election," Kerry told NBC's "Meet the Press." The failed presidential candidate questioned the historic referendum's legitimacy, saying, "It's hard to say that something is legitimate when a whole portion of the country can't vote and doesn't vote." Kerry also pooh-poohed reports of a surprisingly high 72 percent turnout by Iraqi voters, insisting instead that the election has "gone as expected." Asked if he thought Iraq was now less of...

    As Americans pick a president, one key criterion is how the war on terror is going. Is President Bush correct in his positive view or Senator Kerry in his negative one?This same debate, interestingly, is also taking place within conservative circles, where analysts sharing the same basic outlook - that Americans are fighting for their very existence - come to dramatically different conclusions. Consider the contrasting views of two important voices on the right, Mark Helprin and Tod Lindberg.Mr. Helprin, author of such powerful novels as A Soldier of the Great War and Winter's Tale, writes a despairing analysis in...

    NEGATIVE campaigning works: People respond to it, because in most elections your most realistic bet is to vote not for a candidate who represents your every yearning but for the lesser of two evils. … Kerry-Edwards … is taking negative campaigning into uncharted territory. … the last six days … the Democratic campaign has hammered home: * Dick Cheney has a lesbian daughter, who is (says Kerry campaign manager Mary Beth Cahill) "fair game" for discussion. * President Bush is secretly planning to institute a draft. * Bush is deliberately going to destroy Social Security in order — why else?...

    WASHINGTON - While politicians decry negative advertising and personal attacks, the bottom line is that such tactics often work. People may not quite recall the specific controversy, but negative campaigning can still raise a question mark in voters' minds about a candidate and prove hard to overcome. Attack campaigns, such as those by outside groups in the current presidential campaign, "are bad for the system," President Bush (news - web sites) said on Monday, including a television commercial questioning rival John Kerry (news - web sites)'s military service in Vietnam. No matter that Kerry and his supporters have claimed the...

    You wanted campaign finance reform. You got campaign finance reform. McCain-Feingold promised to take the money out of politics. If you believed that, you deserve what you got. And what you got is an avalanche of money into politics this year as George Soros, Democratic big shots and, to a lesser extent, Republican moneymen (Republicans are slower on the uptake) get into the business of "independent" political expenditures. All that McCain-Feingold did was make it impossible to make huge personal contributions to political parties. But if you have far more money than you can ever hope to spend, what to...
