Trump becomes de facto GOP nominee
as Cruz exits after crushing Indiana loss
Washington Post [US], by Philip Rucker, Anne Gearan    Original Article

Donald Trump, the celebrity mogul whose brash and un­or­tho­dox presidential bid was counted out time and again, became the de facto Republican nominee Tuesday night after a runaway victory in Indiana’s primary forced his chief rival, Ted Cruz, to quit the race. Trump overcame a spirited last stand by Cruz — and a patchwork movement of Republicans working desperately to derail him in fear that his polarizing politics could doom the party — to gallop to the nomination. Indiana’s results positioned him to easily accumulate the 1,237 delegates required to avert a contested convention. Even as Ohio Gov. John Kasich vowed

Convicted rapist who changed name

Cops nabbed a Portland creep — who changed his name to Avril Lavigne — after the convicted rapist allegedly failed to register as a sex offender. The 30-year-old formerly known as Romany Yves Mesina was most recently stalking young women with a camera and posting their photos to social media, police Sgt. Peter Simpson said in a statement. In 2014, a judge approved Lavigne’s request to change his name to match the Canadian singer-songwriter, whose hits include “Complicated” and “Sk8er Boi.” Jail records show he was booked into Multnomah County Detention Center under his birth name — not Lavigne — on Monday night.

Ted Cruz quit the caustic Republican primary race Tuesday after getting routed by Donald Trump in Indiana and deciding there was no way he could stop the bombastic real estate mogul from seizing the party´s nomination. ‘From the beginning, I’ve said that I would continue on as long as there was a viable path to victory,´ the Texas senator told a crowd of stunned supporters Tuesday night, as the full magnitude of his loss was still being realized. ´Tonight, I’m sorry to say … it appears that path has been foreclosed,’ Cruz continued, to shouts of ‘No!’ from his supporters.´ ´And so with

A groundbreaking trial to see if it is possible to regenerate the brains of dead people, has won approval from health watchdogs. A biotech company in the US has been granted ethical permission to recruit 20 patients who have been declared clinically dead from a traumatic brain injury, to test whether parts of their central nervous system can be brought back to life. Scientists will use a combination of therapies, which include injecting the brain with stem cells and a cocktail of peptides, as well as deploying lasers

"Donald Trump is the presumptive @GOP nominee," she tweeted on Tuesday night. "Chip in now if you agree we can´t let him become president."

NEW YORK- Sheldon Silver, longtime Democratic politician and former speaker of the New York State Assembly, was sentenced to 12 years in prison for corruption by a federal judge on Tuesday. Silver was also ordered to pay $1.75 million in fines. The 72-year-old lawyer and longtime representative of Lower Manhattan was found guilty last November of fraud, extortion and money laundering. In addition to trading favors with local real estate developers, it was determined that Silver found jobs for two women he had extramarital affairs with. U.S. District Judge Valerie Caproni said she hoped the harsh sentence would send a

INDIANAPOLIS – Ted Cruz ended his presidential campaign Tuesday night after a rout in Indiana, unable to gain traction against a rival he calls a pathological liar. Donald Trump is still about 200 delegates shy of the magic number needed to clinch the Republican nomination. Cruz’s decision will make it far easier for the New York mogul to collect the 1,237 delegate majority needed to avert a contested convention, leaving the anti-Trump effort demoralized and struggling. Campaign manager Jeff Roe confirmed that Cruz is suspending his campaign. The concession of defeat came on one of the most vitriol-filled days of

The Hillary Clinton campaign made multiple payments to a company that specializes in hard drive and document destruction, campaign finance records show. The payments, which were recorded in February and March of 2016, went to the Nevada-based American Document Destruction, Inc., which claims expertise in destroying hard drives or “anything else that a hard drive can come from.” “Our hard drive destruction procedures take place either at your site or at our secure facility in Sparks, NV,” the company’s website states. “This decision is yours to decide based on cost and convenience to you.

Donald J. Trump won Indiana’s Republican primary on Tuesday, moving him closer to claiming the party’s presidential nomination and delivering a devastating blow to Senator Ted Cruz and other Republicans hoping to stop him. Mr. Cruz had pinned his hopes on Indiana, which seemed to offer one of his best chances to deny Mr. Trump the delegates needed to secure the nomination before the party convention in July. But Mr. Trump, after obliterating his rivals in five states in the Northeast last week, held a strong polling lead in the state, which had 57 delegates up for grabs. His victory put him

A former U.S. special operations forces member is lashing out at the Obama White House, accusing the administration of instilling a culture of conformity within the U.S. military, which has led to a generation of apologists and a dearth of leadership among the services’ top brass. Former Navy SEAL Carl Higbie recounted his firsthand experience with this new breed of military leadership during an interview Tuesday on Tim Constantine’s “Capitol Hill Show.” (To hear the full interview, click HERE.)

Hillary Clinton´s hopes of shutting Bernie Sanders down by beating him in Indiana could be dashed tonight. With more than 17 percent of the vote in, the former secretary of state and the U.S. senator were tied, 50-50, after a running start from Clinton quickly turned into a sputter. Polls closed at 6pm across the state that is split into two time zones and the Democratic race remained too close to call even as the Republican winner-take-all primary easily went to Trump. Delegates will be distributed proportionally on the Democratic side, but Sanders needs a decisive win tonight to fulfill his

To make public-sector jobs more accessible to convicts, President Obama has issued a new order prohibiting federal agencies from asking candidates about criminal history when applying for positions. It’s part of the commander-in-chief’s mission to reduce barriers to reentry and employment for incarcerated individuals once they leave jail. The new measure, announced in a Friday media dump, will affect tens of thousands of federal government positions funded with taxpayer dollars. Government often tries to escape fallout by burying controversial or bad news right before the weekend, but it’s difficult to keep this outrageous development below the radar. At the president’s

DEVELOPING: Polls have now closed in all counties in Indiana, where Fox News can project that New York businessman Donald Trump will beat Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in the Hoosier state’s Republican presidential primary, according to Fox exit polls and early vote tallies. The victory significantly improves Trump’s chances of amassing the 1,237 delegates needed to clinch the Republican presidential nomination this summer in Cleveland. With just nine states remaining in the nominating process, the stop-Trump wing of the Republican Party appears to be rapidly running out of options. On the Democratic side, it is too early to project a

President Obama is poised to declare the first-ever national monument recognizing the struggle for gay rights, singling out a sliver of green space and part of the surrounding Greenwich Village neighborhood as the birthplace of America’s modern gay liberation movement. While most national monuments have highlighted iconic wild landscapes or historic sites from centuries ago, this reflects the country’s diversity of terrain and peoples in a different vein: It would be the first national monument anchored by a dive bar and surrounded by a warren of narrow streets that long has been regarded the historic center of gay cultural life in

The Obama administration is preparing to create the nation’s first monument dedicated to the gay rights movement, The Washington Post reported on Tuesday. The monument would be located in New York City’s Greenwich Village, commemorating the epicenter of the nation’s LGBT rights movement. The spot was the site of the 1969 Stonewall riots, which came in the wake of a police raid on the Stonewall Inn, a bar popular among gay men. “We must ensure that we never forget the legacy of Stonewall, the history of discrimination against the LGBT community, or the impassioned individuals who have fought to overcome

ASHLAND, Ky. -- When President Bill Clinton rolled into the small Appalachian town of Ashland, Kentucky, in 1996, cheering crowds lined the streets. Local boy-turned-country music star Billy Ray Cyrus performed a special version of his hit, "Achy Breaky Heart" before nearly 20,000 supporters at a riverfront re-election rally. Back then, this was Clinton country. Today, it looks an awful lot more like Trump town. Hillary Clinton was met in Ashland on Monday by just a handful of supporters and a lone heckler, who shouted: "Go home, Hillary!" Later on, hundreds of protesters stood in pouring rain, waved Donald Trump

Toward the end of the 19 minute 11 second exchange during the 12 p.m. ET hour, Mitchell raised the topic as an afterthought: “Now, I’ve got to just ask you whether since you last mentioned this to my colleague, Chuck Todd, in April, have you been contacted – or your representatives contacted – by the FBI to set up an interview?” Clinton offered a one-word reply: “No.” Mitchell pressed: “No contacts
