(Video) Conservative columnist and commentator George Will announced that he is no longer a registered Republican after changing his Maryland registration from the GOP to "unaffiliated." "I´m an unaffiliated voter in the state of Maryland," Will told PJ Media in an interview. "This is not my party," Will said during a speech beforehand to the Federalist Society. He also reportedly said that House Speaker Paul Ryan´s decision to endorse Trump was part of why he left the party. Will said he isn´t sure whether he´ll vote for Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson. And he offered up a plan for conservatives to
Donald Trump should put his money where his mouth is. The real-estate mogul says he’s worth “in excess” of $10 billion. I think he’s lying, as does pretty much every expert and financial journalist who has looked into the question. Forbes has put his net worth at $4.5 billion. Bloomberg says it’s below $3 billion. Billionaire Mark Cuban has cast doubt on whether Trump is even a billionaire at all. I’ve read the analyses, but common sense always told me he was full of it. Actual multi-billionaires tend not to waste their time recording videos hawking steaks in the Sharper
Hey, Texplainer: Britain voted to leave the European Union. Can Texas secede from the United States? In the wake of Britain’s historic vote to leave the European Union — nicknamed the "Brexit" — speculation of a Texit on the horizon has cropped up once again. The secessionist movement has a long history in the Lone Star State. Delegates for the Texas Republican Party even recently debated adding secessionist language to the party´s platform. But is it actually legal for Texas to leave the United States? Simply put, the answer is no. Historical and legal precedents make it clear that Texas could not
President Obama went on a tear against Donald Trump last night, expressing his frustrations with the GOP candidate dividing the country, “looking for scapegoats [and] ignoring the evidence.” The president preached a message of unity and told people not to get cynical, especially at the voting booth. (The fact that Great Britain voted to leave the EU despite him coming out against that may have left him feeling a little sour.) (Video) Obama said it’s important for all Americans to “assume the best in each other and not the worst,” and then said this: “We don’t have time for charlatans
Next to the propagation of the big lie, one of the most elementary and common devices in manufacturing propaganda is the notion that the truth is something you are not being told. From conspiracy theorists to those selling patent medicine on the Internet, everyone who whispers the words “secret” and “mystery” is using this device. But what happens when you already know you’re not being told the truth? The psychological impact is that much greater. Your normal inclination to be taken in by conspiracy theorists is all the more heightened when you know you are not being told the truth.
One of Virginia´s delegates to the Republican National Convention has filed a federal lawsuit in an effort to avoid voting for Donald Trump at the party convention next month. The delegate, Carroll Correll Jr. of Winchester, Virginia, argues in the suit that being forced to vote against his conscience is a violation of his constitutional rights. Correll says he will not vote for Trump, the presumptive nominee, because he believes the billionaire businessman is unfit to serve as president. Correll´s suit maintains that state law imposes criminal penalties on delegates who don´t vote on the first ballot for the winner of the state´s
