  • Joe Paterno Was Told Of Child Abuse By Jerry Sandusky In 1976 Per Report

    Joe Paterno was told as early as 1976 that former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky had sexually molested young boys according to a new report. A child apparently reported to Paterno that he was sexually abused by Sandusky in 1976. This came to light via a court order during a related insurance coverage case involving Penn State. The line in the court order says the following: ďin 1976, a child allegedly reported to PSUís Head Coach Joseph Paterno that he (the child) was sexually molested by Sandusky.Ē The court order also cites references to incidents in 1987 and 1988 in which...

    The West Virginia Coal Association is putting its weight behind Donald Trump for president. Members of the group, which represents companies in coal mining and related industries, voted Thursday to endorse the presumptive Republican nominee, days before West Virginiaís presidential primary. ďTrump has said he will reverse the Democratic regulatory assault that has cost the coal industry more than 40 percent of our production and jobs since 2008,Ē Bill Raney, the groupís president, said in a statement. ďIn contrast, Hillary Clintonís proposals essentially double-down on the job killing Obama policies,Ē he said. ďWest Virginia canít afford that and neither can...

    During his victory speech Tuesday night after the Indiana primary, Donald Trump emphasized a region that could be ground zero for support: Appalachia. ďThe miners in West Virginia and Pennsylvania, Ohio and all over, theyíre going to start to work again,Ē Trump said. ďWe are not going to be like Hillary Clinton,Ē he said, taking aim at her ill-timed remarks last more for which she ultimately apologized. Once upon a time in coal country -- states stretching along the Appalachian Mountains and the Marcellus Shale, a formation rich in underground resources like natural gas and coal -- the Clinton...

    Well, so much for suspense. The networks called Indiana for Donald Trump about five seconds after the polls closed, and within two hours Ted Cruz announced he was suspending his campaign. Trump is winning a majority of the vote and will likely win all 57 delegates. Even if a few delegates stray back across the line, this win clinched the nomination for Trump. He will now have well over 1,000 bound delegates, which is less than 200 from what he needs to make it a lock. And that's without the unbound delegates he definitely has in Pennsylvania and is sure...

The pilot of American Eagle flight 4801 from Richmond, Virginia, operated by Piedmont Airlines, reported smoke in the cockpit just before the plane's regularly scheduled arrival, according to Victoria Lupic, a spokeswoman for American Airlines Group Inc whose American Eagle brand uses regional airlines to operate short and medium haul feeder flights.

    Santorum Downplays Romney's Endorsement Haul, Compares Rival To McCain April 01, 2012 Rick Santorum fought Sunday to downplay Mitt Romney's growing list of endorsements from Republican Party figures, dismissing the support as the work of an "establishment" pushing the party to nominate another "moderate" just like John McCain in 2008. The former Pennsylvania senator, who bills himself as the true conservative in the race, urged the party to draw lessons from the 2008 race. He said the protracted primary between then-Sen. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton resulted in the "best candidate" for the Democrats, while Republicans decided, "We've got to...

    For the last month or so, Donald Trumpís path to 1,237 delegates has been clear: Win Indiana and California. But after his strong showings in the Northeast, Indiana no longer seems to be a must-win state to capture the Republican nomination. Sure, winning the state would be very helpful toward gaining a majority of delegates. Without Indiana, he would struggle to get the 1,237 bound delegates needed to wrap up the nomination heading into the convention. But thereís now a credible path to winning on the first ballot without it. The main reason is Mr. Trumpís success on Tuesday among...

Indeed, Cruz's Keystone power was supposedly why he was spending the evening of April 19 in that state rather than personally witnessing his drubbing in New York that night.

    Donald Trump won a sweeping victory in the Pennsylvania primary and, more importantly, he dominated the fight for the state's 54 unbound delegates to the GOP convention -- making his path to obtaining the 1,237 delegates needed to secure the nomination much easier. NBC News reached out to all 54 delegate winners after the polls closed Tuesday night. Interviews reveal that as of Wednesday afternoon 35 said they intend to support Trump on the first ballot at the convention -- a number that could rise north of 40 when the final ten delegates are reached.

The hard push for support from individual delegates is a shift for Trump who has been outmaneuvered by rival Sen. Ted Cruz, but one that has proven necessary as if he is to ensure he has the support of delegates at the Republican nominating convention in July....

    A retired middle school principal was so moved by Donald Trump that he switched his Democratic Party registration so he can vote for him in Tuesdayís Republican presidential primary.

Thatís a big deal given how...

The predicament of these GOP senators comes into clearer focus in the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, completed just last week, which helps crystallize three big complications they...
