Three numbers from Tuesday´s
primaries that should worry Trump

Washington — Tuesday was pretty good for Donald Trump. He swept five states and edged closer to the magic number of 1,237 delegates needed to win the Republican presidential nomination. His winning numbers were impressive, ranging from 54 percent of the GOP primary vote in Maryland to 64 percent in Rhode Island. It sure looks like he’s no longer a plurality candidate winning split fields by less than majority vote. (Snip) TURNOUT. Yes, Trump won big on Tuesday. But he did so with a relatively small GOP turnout. In the six northeastern states that voted during the last eight days,

‘Winning’ — They Want Heads to Roll

There will be blood. On Tuesday night, Donald Trump swept the “Acela Corridor” primaries — Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and Rhode Island — and made it more likely than ever that he will be the Republican nominee. Next week’s Indiana primary is now truly a must-win contest for Ted Cruz. (It’s never a good sign when an event is being touted as your “Alamo.”) And even if Cruz can keep Trump from winning the nomination outright, taking the nomination from him at a contested convention is now far more difficult. But on Wednesday morning, Trump fans had pitchforks poised. Early

Former Speaker Boehner Calls
Cruz ´Lucifer in the Flesh´

John Boehner is not a big fan of Ted Cruz. So much so, in fact, that the former Republican House Speaker told an audience at Stanford University Wednesday that the Texas senator is "Lucifer in the flesh" and a "miserable son of a b***h." Asked about the 2016 presidential candidate at a forum hosted by Stanford in Government (SIG) and the Stanford Speakers Bureau, Boehner drew laughter for making a face of disgust, according to the Stanford Daily. "Lucifer in the flesh," Boehner said, according to the paper. "I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone, but I

Sen. Ted Cruz tapped former GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina as his running mate Wednesday at an Indianapolis rally where he attempted to undercut front-runner Donald Trump’s momentum the day after he swept contests in five states. Cruz said among the "most solemn choices" a presidential candidate makes is selecting a running mate. He also acknowledged the unusual timing of the announcement and that some might ask — "why now?" While acknowledging the early selection was “unusual,” Cruz said so was this year’s campaign.

The most remarkable aspect of Donald Trump’s foreign policy speech was that someone actually wrote it out and put it in the teleprompter. It was so filled with internal contradictions, falsehoods and genuinely crazy assertions that one would have thought Trump was speaking extemporaneously. It was a vivid display as to why he is thoroughly unprepared to become commander in chief. If anything comes of it, one hopes that a third candidate, sickened to his stomach, will have watched this, jumped from his seat and declared himself ready to rescue the country from the possibility that Trump might be president.

"[Cruz] has got no path to victory and he´s naming a VP candidate. I guess that´s cute..." @realDonaldTrumphttps://t.co/DfxhobcGlr — FOX & Friends (@foxandfriends) April 27, 2016 Donald Trump early Wednesday bashed speculation that Republican presidential rival Ted Cruz will name former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina as his running mate before several upcoming primaries are undecided. "I think it hurts him. I can´t imagine he does it. First of all, he shouldn´t be naming anybody because he doesn´t even have a chance," Trump said during a phone interview on "Fox and Friends." "He´s millions of votes behind, he´s hundreds of delegates behind ... he´s got

GOP front-runner Donald Trump on Wednesday vowed to put US security “above all else” if elected president and offered a vision of a non-interventionist, America-first foreign policy. “’America first’ will be the major and overriding theme of my administration,” Trump said during his first foreign policy speech in Washington, DC. “I will be America’s greatest defender and most loyal champion. No American citizen will ever feel that their needs come second to a citizen of a foreign country,” he said, echoing a familiar theme but in a far more serious tone than on the campaign trail. “Our goal is peace and prosperity, not

Hopefully he’s planning to announce he’s now learned that a “basketball ring” is commonly referred to as a hoop. Good lord, man. Only two possibilities for what the announcement might be. One is that he’s finally landed Mike Pence’s endorsement. That would be nice counterprogramming to today’s “it’s all over now, baby blue” media narrative but I don’t think it’s happening. Why would Pence, who’s been reluctant to endorse for fear that it’ll alienate some key faction of Republicans he needs this fall, suddenly change his mind the day after Cruz has taken the most hellacious beating of the campaign?

Team Obama raising tobacco prices at
U.S. military bases to curb smoking

The Pentagon is looking to raise the price of cigarettes and smokeless tobacco sold on U.S. military installations worldwide, in an attempt to ween U.S. service members from tobacco use. Defense Secretary Ash Carter codified the policy in an April 8th department-wide memorandum, which also expanded smoke-free areas on American military bases, according to Reuters. The new tobacco policy would increase prices on cigarettes and smokeless tobacco sold at U.S. military commissaries and post exchanges to match the price of tobacco products sold off base, which are subject to state and local taxes. Currently, tobacco products sold on U.S. bases

I’ve endorsed Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). I was a contributor to National Review’s Against Trump symposium at the beginning of the year. Sarah Palin, Ben Carson, Mike Huckabee and Phyllis Schlafly—you are friends and allies, serious men and women for whom I have great respect. You and other conservatives disagreed. I pen this open letter to you. [Snip] Let’s look at Mr. Trump’s record during this campaign. He’s declared his support for single-payer healthcare. That puts him to the left of Obamacare. He’s re-declared his support for Planned Parenthood. He’s re-supporting tax increases. He’s supported crony capitalism. He’s endorsed “touchback”

Retailers are weighing in on the question of transgender rights as momentum builds against Target, whose stance on which bathroom transgender customers and employees can use in stores has sparked major backlash from customers who say they´re going to stop shopping there. Starbucks, Hudson´s Bay Co. — parent company to Lord & Taylor and Saks Fifth Avenue — and Barnes & Noble all told USA TODAY that employees and customers in their stores are welcome to use the bathroom of the gender they identify with. Starbucks spokeswoman Jaime Riley said the company is "looking into additional opportunities to have more

Are Bill Clinton and his team the

Several weeks ago, I wrote a column titled “Is Bill Clinton in the FBI crosshairs?” That question appears to be increasingly relevant because of the emergence of another, more central one: Was Hillary Clinton’s unsecure, private email server set up by her husband’s top political operative in order to turbocharge their own political and financial interests? Justin Cooper may hold the answer. Mr. Cooper is a central player in the shadowy worlds of Bill and Hillary Clinton — serving as Mr. Clinton’s top aide since 2015, when his predecessor, former right-hand man and “surrogate son” Doug Band, resigned from the Clinton Foundation —
