    buffalonews.com ^ | April 29, 2016 | Tom Precious
    ALBANY – Hours after his office received a subpoena as part of a criminal probe of the Buffalo Billion program, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo on Friday ordered a review of his own signature economic development program, which is anchored by the massive SolarCity project along the Buffalo River. The governor’s counsel, Alphonso David, said Friday that the investigation begun last year by U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara has “recently raised questions of improper lobbying and undisclosed conflicts of interest by some individuals” that may involve cases in which the state was “defrauded.” The revelation by Cuomo comes after months in which...

    Riding on a string of big victories in the presidential primaries, Donald Trump has not only extended his lead against his GOP rivals, but also he has gained ground against Hillary Clinton, according to the latest IBD/TIPP Poll. ------------------------------------------------ The poll finds that Trump now leads Ted Cruz by 19 points — 48% to 29% — which is more than double his lead last month. At the same time, Hillary’s lead over Trump is now just seven points (47% to 40%), down from 12 points last month. What’s more, 65% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents now pick Trump as either...

    John Kasich on Friday was pressed by a man in California to answer whether or not he believed people are born gay. "Do you believe that some people are born gay?" asked Kelly Bryan, 62, of San Francisco, who attended the Commonwealth Club of California event where Kasich was the featured guest. He later described himself as a Democrat who plans to vote for Hillary Clinton. "Please respond without prayer being an answer." Kasich first tried to dodge an answer. "I'm not gonna get into all the analysis of this or that, I'm not gonna do that," he said. As...

    Speculation abounds as Fox News talking head Andrea Tantaros is no longer appearing on air. In response to a query from TV Newser, Fox issued a terse statement: “Issues have arisen regarding Andrea’s contract, and Fox News Channel has determined it best that she take some time off. She is still under contract with the network.” That opens the question of what could have changed regarding her contract all of a sudden. The Examiner opens a few doors on what might (or might not) be at issue with Tantaros and the network: While not cited by FNC as a reason...

    A 2-year investigation has resulted in the indictments of 29 people and 86 criminal charges relating to a cartel connected-human smuggling operation in South Texas. The investigation which began in Atascosa County, Texas, tied in a suspected human smuggling operation that stretched from the border to as far as San Antonio and Houston. Atascosa County, located around the town of Pleasanton about 40 miles south of San Antonio, became the focal point of the investigation as authorities uncovered a stash house where up to 250 illegal immigrants per month were being smuggled, information provided to Breitbart Texas by Atascosa County...

    Republican turnout this primary season is up 64% over 2012 levels, new data show, with participation accelerating in recent months as voters in big states got a rare shot to play a meaningful role. The rise in GOP turnout had been calculated at about 57% in the aggregate for states that voted through early April. The subsequent boost in what was already high GOP turnout comes as voters in New York, Pennsylvania and several other populous states had the rare opportunity this year in helping to choose the party’s nominee. Rarely has the contest lasted long enough for the outcome...

"Do the Republicans actually think that they can win an election by scaring every Hispanic in this country to death?"

    Donald Trump supporters are a generally happy bunch... The Cruz campaign in Indiana is in a state of collapse and freefall. By the end of the weekend you can expect the narrative to shift, and the campaign will be pointing fingers toward California (June 7th) because their impending defeat is looming ever more dangerous. Before getting to a recent poll, lets take a look at the current landscape. Senator Ted Cruz and Carly Fiorina spoke at a campaign rally in South Bend Indiana.

    For decades, American political math has revolved around the Northeast – once a bastion of moderate Republicanism – being monolithically Democratic. Donald Trump's nationalist platform is forcing a political realignment the likes of which hasn't been seen since the 1980's. For all their chest-pounding and back-patting about living in “the capital of the world,” New Yorkers themselves are pretty irrelevant on the national political scene. The Empire State hasn’t produced a major politician since Franklin Roosevelt; no, carpetbaggers like Hillary Clinton and Bobby Kennedy don’t count. Air conditioning and high taxation has sent middle-class New Yorkers fleeing to warmer, cheaper...

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...

    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...

He was forced to exit his motorcade and walk through a field, climbing an embankment with Secret Service agents helping him, to avoid angry demonstrators on the street. “We went under a fence and through a fence, and oh, boy, it felt like I was crossing the border, actually,” Mr. Trump said when he finally made it to a ballroom to speak at California’s Republican Party convention.

    Donald Trump’s damage to the Republican Party, although already extensive, has barely begun. Republican quislings will multiply, slinking into support of the most anti-conservative presidential aspirant in their party’s history. These collaborationists will render themselves ineligible to participate in the party’s reconstruction. Ted Cruz’s announcement of his preferred running mate has enhanced the nomination process by giving voters pertinent information. They already know the only important thing about Trump’s choice: His running mate will be unqualified for high office because he or she will think Trump is qualified. Hillary Clinton’s optimal running mate might be Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio,...

    Texas' controversial voter identification law will remain in effect, possibly through November's elections, after the Supreme Court on Friday denied an emergency request from a coalition of Latino advocacy groups and Democratic lawmakers who say the measure is discriminatory. The unsigned order from the justices did not explain their reasoning, or whether there was any opposition. While it is a temporary decision, it could affect enforcement of similar laws in other states during a hotly contested presidential election year. A lawsuit challenging the Texas law known as SB 14 is still pending in a federal court, and the immediate issue...

    From October 2013 forward we have discussed the presidential election of 2016 and foretold/warned what was to come. There are trillions of dollars at stake. The culmination of four years strategic planning (2011 – 2015) from Wall Street -via legislative priorities- are enmeshed within the outcome. The financiers have spent hundreds of millions on the construction. Anyone with even moderate research skills could assemble the same data if they had: a.) time, and b.) inclination. Sometimes, like the “splitter strategy“, conspiracies are not theory. The behavior inherent within the visible activity is simply just an outcome of a mutually beneficial...

The most noteworthy leader of the “America First Committee” was Charles Lindbergh, who sympathized with the Nazis and whose rhetoric was characterized by anti-Semitism and offensive stereotypes, including assertions that Jews posed a threat to the U.S. because of their influence in motion pictures, radio, the...

    Raucous crowds of protesters took to the streets late Thursday in California as Donald Trump brought his Republican presidential campaign to conservative Orange County after sweeping the Northeast GOP primaries. Dozens of protesters were mostly peaceful as Trump gave his speech inside the Pacific Amphitheater. After the event, however, the demonstration grew rowdy and spilled into the streets. At least four people were arrested and one Trump supporter had his face bloodied in a scuffle as he tried to drive out of the arena. One man jumped on a police car, leaving its front and rear windows smashed and the...

    Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said Thursday that “recalcitrant countries” that refuse to take criminal aliens that are being deported should not get federal aid from the U.S. and the U.S. should not give those countries more visas. “They should not be getting federal aid, and we shouldn’t be giving them visas so that more people from those countries can come to the United States,” said Chaffetz during a hearing on illegal immigration crime.

    BROWNSVILLE – The number of people crossing the border illegally is on the rise. The Border Patrol chief said the number of people coming across is consistent with the surge two years ago. Chief Patrol Agent and Commander of the South Texas Corridor Manuel Padilla Jr. insisted this time, his agents are better prepared and border security isn’t in jeopardy. However, some people don’t agree. More than 80,000 people crossed the border illegally since October. It includes more unaccompanied children and family members from Central America and Mexico. It’s about the same as during the immigration crisis of 2014.

    For years, California politicians and educators – who are sometimes the same – have talked about the “achievement gap” that separates poor and “English-learner” students from more advantaged classmates.

    A group of hackers linked to Islamic State has posted online a list of thousands of New York residents and urged followers of the militant group to target them, according to a source with knowledge of the matter. Federal agents and New York City police officers have been contacting the individuals on the list to inform them of the posting, but the source said law enforcement does not believe there is any credible threat. In a statement, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said, "While our standard practice is to decline comment on specific operational and investigative matters, the FBI routinely...

    Marco Rubio appears to be warming up to Donald Trump, saying Friday his “performance has improved significantly." Rubio has also continued to withhold an endorsement of Ted Cruz, even though he previously praised him as the conservative in the race. Last Sunday on Univision Rubio said it appeared Trump will lock down the nomination. "If he keeps winning delegates like he did the other night in New York, I think he's going to reach that number," Rubio said on Al Punto Florida. "But let's see. There are still other states to go." And Rubio, who continues to hold onto more...

    From the outset, and particularly since the ridiculous “Never Trump” campaign began, we have outlined the most damaging aspect to Senator Ted Cruz’s presidential bid is his continued visibility. The reasoning is simple: the more people see and hear Cruz, the more the average electorate are turned off by Cruz. He’s just not a likeable man. A CNN article today points out the internal polling within Indiana is following this consistent pattern: Cruz allies and people close to the campaign describe a budding sense of gloom, with internal polls diving as Trump mounted even stronger than expected showings in his...

    Lebanese academic Walid Phares, who is the foreign policy advisor to US presidential candidate Donald Trump, claimed Thursday Trump would surprise Arabs with a conciliatory speech to be delivered this week. In an interview with the pan-Arab Al-Hayat newspaper, Phares said Trump “is certainly not a racist” and blamed his “lack of expertise in politics” for making comments that are interpreted as racist and fascist towards Arabs and Muslims. “He is certainly not a racist and nothing on a personal level shows that he is,” Phares said of Trump. “The opposite is true, a number large of the employees in...

  • Barbara Boxer: Carly Fiorina Pick Shows Ted Cruz ‘Has No Judgment Whatsoever’

    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...
