I find it nothing short of hilarious how so many seasoned political journalists (including many of my colleagues — and betters – at Fox) are visibly shocked and appalled by what Cruz did last night. Ever since I was a kid, the political press – left, right and center – has whined that there’s no drama at conventions any more. It’s all scripted. It’s just an infomercial. It’s just such a shame. Well here comes Ted Cruz providing exactly the sort of drama they yearned for and many of these same voices are aghast at Ted Cruz’s effrontery. The word

The U.S. Capitol Police have offered to provide additional security protection for Texas Senator Ted Cruz following angry confrontations on the floor of the GOP convention in Cleveland, a law enforcement source tells DailyMail.com. The offer of extra protection came hours after Cruz left the Quicken Loans Arena Wednesday night being subjected to taunts and boos after he refused to endorse Donald Trump and instead urged Americans to vote their ´conscience.´ His wife, Heidi Cruz, had to be hustled out of the arena by a Cruz supporter fearful for her security. Cruz addressed Texas delegates Thursday morning and got furious blowback from Trump

Philadelphia’s police union is blasting Hillary Clinton for inviting relatives of victims of police shootings to speak at the Democratic National Convention next week, but failing to include relatives of slain police officers. “The Fraternal Order of Police is insulted and will not soon forget that the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton are excluding the widows and other family members of police officers killed in the line of duty who were victims of explicit and not implied racism. The Clinton campaign has scheduled (snip)relatives of black men killed by police such as Eric Garner of New York and Michael Brown

We need to eat less meat.

Meat consumption in the United States — and across much of the Western world — has reached a level that is unsustainable, both for our planet and for our health. We owe it to ourselves to make a change. Our politicians owe it to us to enable that change. The average American eats three times as much meat as experts deem healthy, the average European around twice as much. And the emerging economies are quickly catching up: by 2050, global consumption is expected to rise a further 76 percent. Excessive meat-eating is partly responsible for an epidemic of obesity — now one

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump used his remarks to campaign staffers and volunteers Friday to revive conspiracy theories linking Ted Cruz’s father with Lee Harvey Oswald, the man who killed President John F. Kennedy. “I don’t know his father. I met him once. I think he’s a lovely guy,” Trump said the day after accepting the presidential nomination in Cleveland. “All I did is point out the fact that on the cover of the National Enquirer there was a picture of him and crazy Lee Harvey Oswald having breakfast.” In May, the National Enquirer published a story claiming that Rafael

After Megyn Kelly was slammed for donning a spaghetti-strapped dress during the Republican National Convention on Wednesday, it appears she opted for a more modest outfit Thursday night. While covering the fourth and final night of the GOP convention in Cleveland, Ohio tonight, the Fox News star was seen wearing a more formal black dress featuring an asymmetrical neckline. The shoulder straps were noticeably thicker than the ones seen on last night´s form-fitting dress, with one strap featuring a cut-out, baring part of her left shoulder, while the other featured an overlay of white fabric. Her more modest look comes on the

Donald Trump needed to give the speech of his life–he did that, and much more. He laid out an inspiring American Manifesto for our troubled times.And he did it his way.Not surprisingly, from start to finish, it is muscular and bold, leavened only by appeals to racial harmony and pledges of compassion for all. It offers a prominent nod to Bernie Sanders’ supporters in a bid to get some to jump the Democratic ship. Most important, it keeps faith with his campaign themes of putting forgotten Americans first. In contrasting his view with his opponent’s, the Republican nominee put it this

Conventions have multiple purposes, but the part that is televised in prime time has only one: to reinforce the themes and competitive advantages of the presidential candidate. That requires highlighting his strengths, minimizing his weaknesses and damaging his opponent. Three days of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland have produced a slightly different effect, leaving the rationales for Donald Trump´s candidacy in tatters. Consider. Trump the CEO. Trump´s never been much of a manager, as my Trump-authority colleague

Time Will Vindicate Ted Cruz

The fullness of time will vindicate Ted Cruz´s actions at the National Convention this week, and as a bonus, the reaction has exposed that Donald Trump has indeed jumped in between the sheets with the Republican Establishment. On the second point, let´s not quibble over who seduced whom. I know that the conventional wisdom is that Cruz committed suicide. Good. Let´s check the scorecard of conventional wisdom. Almost everyone thought it was crazy in the fall of 2013 to say Cruz´s Obamacare filibuster would actually help Republicans in 2014 and that it would help Cruz´s career.

Ted Cruz puts his political career ahead

CLEVELAND — In the end it was all about Ted Cruz. Delivering an un-vetted speech before the GOP convention Wednesday night, Ted Cruz — as is always his custom — carefully calculated just how to do it so it would benefit himself the most. And it backfired. He uttered the name of his party’s nominee — the man who invited him to speak — just once, only to congratulate him on the nomination. Quite pointedly, the Texas Senator refused to endorse Donald Trump. As if to punctuate his own bitter whining over losing, Cruz actually told conventioneers that New York

President Barack Obama said at the White House Summit on Global Development yesterday that “we are living in the most peaceful” era in human history and that “the world has never been less violent.” According to the White House schedule, the president used the summit to “bring together development leaders, public and private sector financing partners, civil society, diplomats, and entrepreneurs to mark our global progress and catalyze further development efforts.” “So it is worth reminding ourselves of how lucky we are to be living in the most peaceful, most prosperous, most progressive era in human history,” Obama said in

They didn’t riot in the streets of Cleveland, as Donald Trump said his supporters would do had things not gone his way. But you saw the raw essence of a riot, the madness and loss of reason, on display in four days of chaos at the Republican National Convention. For a campaign now devoted to “law and order,” the launch was mob rule: in spirit, in tone, in words. Long after we’ve forgotten Trump’s closing speech — that paean to self, that nightmare portrait of an America where the lights have gone out — we will remember the savagery just below
