After all, Donald Trump has built a winning presidential campaign — and made the media pay for it. Mr. Trump’s second place finish in Iowa gave respite to the legions of media pundits and establishment flunkies who suffer the worst forms of Donald Trump Derangement Syndrome. They braced for a huge blow'out win in the Corn State.

The Stanford University Libraries’ dataset of mass shootings (“Stanford Mass Shootings in America, courtesy of the Stanford Geospatial Center and Stanford Libraries”) was analyzed for mass shootings over the past 14 years.

Jack Markell attempted to heal wounds left by Delaware’s legacy of racial oppression by signing a resolution Wednesday formally apologizing for slavery and Jim Crow era laws. The signing – a long'awaited symbolic gesture aimed at reconciliation – took place at the Delaware Public Archives in Dover and coincided with the celebration of Black History Month and the unveiling of an exhibit commemorating the 125th anniversary of Delaware State University. Before signing the resolution, Markell said the “egregious sin” of slavery should never be forgotten and should not be separated from the state’s current racial justice challenges.“It is Fiorina calls it quits, suspends campaign for president Wed, 10 05 2016 09:05:18 GMT 760d69e6e2a209d475e22f11b53003d29f57293b Fox News, by Staff Posted By: Desert Fox- Wed, 10 05 2016 09:05:18 GMT Former HP executive Carly Fiorina ended her bid Wednesday for the Republican nomination for president. Fiorina, who was the only female GOP candidate in the 2016 running, called it quits after failing to crack the top five in the New Hampshire primary Tuesday night. “While I suspend my candidacy today, I will continue to travel this country and fight for those Americans who refuse to settle for the way things are and a status quo that no longer works for them,” Fiorina said in a written statement.

And black people love Hillary—or so it seems. Black politicians have lined up in droves to endorse her, eager to prove their loyalty to the Clintons in the hopes that their faithfulness will be remembered and rewarded. Black pastors are opening their church doors, and the Clintons are making themselves comfortably at home once again, engaging effortlessly in all the usual rituals associated with “courting the black vote,” a pursuit that typically begins and ends with Democratic politicians making black people feel liked and taken seriously.

One is that Sanders has captured the prevailing sentiment among Democrats, a fervent desire for political revolution to unmake a corrupt system, and he will ride this desire all the way to the nomination. Another is that yesterday’s result was a function of some idiosyncratic features of that primary, particularly New Hampshire’s demographic homogeneity and the fact that independents are allowed to vote in the party primary; now that the race moves to states that better represent the Democratic Party, Clinton’s strength among Ta'Nehisi Coates: ´I Will Be Voting for Senator Sanders´ Wed, 10 00 2016 09:00:32 GMT 1f0130aa5141d650a9111a46076e0791f02413d9 Weekly Standard, by Chris Deaton Posted By: JoniTx- Wed, 10 00 2016 09:00:32 GMT The Atlantic´s Ta'Nehisi Coates said in an interview with Democracy Now! that he would vote for Bernie Sanders in this year´s Democratic primary. Coates is a favorite writer of President Barack Obama. "I will be voting for Senator Sanders. I´ve tried to avoid this question, but yes, I will be voting for Senator Sanders," he said, noting that he doesn´t think much is accomplished by trying to separate his personal preferences from his public life. Coates added that he is "thrilled" a candidate such as Sanders has found popularity in the party, and that he can reconcile his disagreement with The Titanic sails again: Inside the lavish £300million replica of doomed ocean liner, which is due to set sail in 2018 Wed, 10 58 2016 08:58:00 GMT 0d7e65ff04ea933651df189cf3e81ffacbf557e4 Daily Mail [UK], by Chris Kitching Posted By: happywarrior- Wed, 10 58 2016 08:58:00 GMT If this replica of the RMS Titanic ever sets sail, it will look eerily similar to the ill'fated ocean liner that remains the most famous ship of all time.These captivating side'by'side images show how the planned Titanic II will stick to the incredible detail of the original ship that sank in the Atlantic Ocean more than 100 years ago.

Today, the US Supreme Court made that promise more of a maybe. In a late'day announcement, the country’s highest court said it will not enforce the Clean Power Plan—the EPA rule that forces massive cuts to coal power plants—until a lower court resolves legal challenges against the rule.

Though polar opposites with very different ideological starting points, both Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders would have set the Framers´ hair – or wigs – on fire. They designed the Constitution to moderate the people at home while preparing a president to act quickly to counter emergencies, crises, and war abroad. Instead, the Republicans have a demagogue and the Democrats have an economic radical who promise swift, extreme change.

He beat Hillary Clinton by a solid twenty points, in every single demographic. He made it next to impossible for Hillary Clinton to say that she´s won the "hearts" or "minds" of New Englanders, and while he´s definitely had home court advantage, he performed better than even he could have reasonably expected. But while Bernie may have earned all the accolades, Hillary Clinton - not Bernie Sanders - will come away with most of New Hampshire´s delegates. And you thought politics was fair? Shame on you.

Norwood Thomas, 93, flew from Virginia to Australia to meet Joyce Morris, who´s now 88. Morris was a 17'year'old British girl and Thomas was a 21'year'old paratrooper when they first met in London shortly before D'Day. After the war, he returned to the U.S. The two wrote letters to each other, and Thomas asked Morris to come to the U.S. to marry him. But somehow Morris misunderstood and thought he´d found someone else, so she stopped writing.

Cruz had said “bronze was the new gold.” But after coming off his own third'place finish in New Hampshire, Cruz took a jab at Fox News for its coverage of third'place finishers by seemingly mocking it as he said he was looking forward to their coverage of his third'place finish. “I’m looking forward to a wall'to'wall coverage of Fox Official: Top Clinton aides also handled ‘top secret’ intel on server Wed, 10 13 2016 08:13:18 GMT a508b9fcf7f8d2675a16f4d2af824e4e3aeb490c Fox News, by Catherine Herridge & Pamela K.

The official said the accounts include not only Clinton’s but those of top aides – including Cheryl Mills, Huma Abedin, Jake Sullivan and Philippe Reines – as well as State Department Under Secretary for Management Patrick Kennedy and others. A second source not authorized to speak on the record said the number of accounts involved could be as high as 30 and Is Rubio done?

During his tenure as Florida Governor Bush initiated the largest eminent domain private property confiscation in the history of the Sunshine State. Bush’s action is now costing the State of Florida hundreds of millions in lawsuits and legal fees. During a period from mid-2000 to January 2006 the Florida Department of Agriculture, at the direction of Governor Jeb Bush, began a program to seize and destroy citrus trees from Florida residents.

The last presidential hopeful to make good on Sununu’s words: his old boss, George H.W. Bush. That was all the way back in 1988 – three years before Peyton Manning first took the field . . . for his high-school team. Maybe Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders, New Hampshire’s two big winners, will make Sununu look good. Time will tell. In theory, the first two stops on the campaign trail embody two traits: clarity and attrition.

In a speech on the Senate floor Tuesday, Mr. McCain criticized the GOP presidential hopefuls, without directly naming businessman Donald Trump or Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas), for suggesting the U.S. might bring back the use of waterboarding during their most recent debate Saturday night in New Hampshire. “It might be easy to dismiss this bluster as cheap campaign rhetoric,” Mr. McCain said before detailing his objections to the technique, which came under New Cruz ad: Kids play dolls with Trump action figure Wed, 10 45 2016 07:45:09 GMT 3c2979e2e62c27723d467bf450154511e9581e16 Washington Examiner, by Curt Mills Posted By: JoniTx- Wed, 10 45 2016 07:45:09 GMT (Video) Ted Cruz released a new ad Tuesday portraying Donald Trump as an action figure who likes to pretend he´s a Republican, and take people´s houses with eminent domain. "Look, I´ve got the Trump action figure," a child actor says in the spot, "Playing Trump." "No way, that´s yuge," another kid replies. One kid asks the other what the Trump action figure does, and the first kid says, "He pretends to be a Republican." A child voices the Trump doll, "I like bailouts for the banks."
