John Kasich on Mitt Romney: ‘It’s always good to have the standard-bearer come in’

Ohio Gov. John Kasich says 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who is scheduled to campaign with Mr. Kasich Monday, should help him in the Buckeye State.

“Well look, he [was] the standard-bearer four years ago. It’s always good to have the standard-bearer come in,” Mr. Kasich said Monday on Fox News. “He’ll help us in the state.”

Mr. Kasich also pointed out that he personally has nearly an 80 percent approval rating among Republicans in Ohio, but that he’s not taking anything for granted. The latest Real Clear Politics polling average gives Mr. Kasich a slight edge in the state over GOP front-runner Donald Trump.

Carson: Protesters’ ‘Alinsky-ite Tactics’ Could Contribute to Further Escalation

Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson said Monday that if protesters at Donald Trump rallies continue their “Alinsky-ite tactics,” there could be further escalation in the future.

“I think, certainly, if the protesters continue with their Alinksy-ite tactics, there is a real possibility of escalation, because those who are the victims of them have two choices: They can submit to them and meekly just do whatever those protesters want them to do, or they can fight back,” Mr. Carson said on NBC’s “Today” program. “And if they decide to fight back, there could be an escalation.”

“The problem is that there are those who are being taught that if someone disagrees with you, you have the right to interfere with their First Amendment rights, their ability to express themselves, their freedom of speech,” he said. “That’s where the emphasis needs to be.”

“Now, when people do things wrong such as that, it causes other people to react in a way that is negative, and therefore you see that reaction,” said Mr. Carson, a former 2016 GOP presidential candidate who officially endorsed Mr. Trump on Friday.

Where Is Islam’s Martin Luther?

Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s Heretic, now out in paperback, is a provocative and ambitious book that aims to reform the second largest religion in the world. Hirsi Ali, a Somali born, Dutch raised, naturalized American most famous (or infamous) for the condemnations of Islam in her previous books, Infidel and Nomad, begins her current work with a brash maxim: “Islam is not a religion of peace.” By this she does not mean that Islamic belief makes Muslims violent, only that “the call to violence and the justification for it are explicitly stated in the sacred texts of Islam.” This is the fundamental point from which all else in Heretic flows.

But before Hirsi Ali discusses the nature of Islam, she takes pains to identify three groups of Muslims at whom the book is directed:Medina Muslims, the fundamentalists of the faith; Mecca Muslims, the devout, who are not inclined to practice violence, and comprise the majority of Muslims; and Modifying Muslims, or, the dissidents. Heretic, we learn, was conceived as a way to engage with Mecca Muslims, the precarious middle group Hirsi Ali contends is teetering between departing the faith and joining the extremists.

So how does one go about implementing a modern-day doctrinal reformation?

Hirsi Ali proposes five emendations to the faith.

U.S. Says North Korea Rhetoric a,Prelude to Attack

Escalating threats from North Korea’s communist regime are indicators of a future military attack or another nuclear test in the coming days, according to a recent U.S. intelligence assessment.

Intelligence agencies issued the assessment last week warning that threatening rhetoric from Pyongyang in response to large-scale U.S.-South Korean military exercises and new U.N. sanctions had reached the highest level in years.

The unclassified assessment circulated within government states that the intense language suggests North Korea is preparing for a surprise military strike or a demonstration of strategic capability, such as a new long-range missile test or underground nuclear blast, according to U.S. officials familiar with the report.

On Sunday, North Korean state news media warned its missiles could destroy New York City in a thermonuclear attack.

“Our hydrogen bomb is much bigger than the one developed by the Soviet Union,” the outlet DPRK Today stated.

“If this H-bomb were to be mounted on an inter-continental ballistic missile and fall on Manhattan in New York City, all the people there would be killed immediately and the city would burn down to ashes,” the report said.

Such threatening rhetoric from Pyongyang is typical of the communist regime’s propaganda. However, in the past several weeks the tone and level of threats has been unusually harsh, according to the officials, and that is increasing fears among intelligence analysts that the stepped-up threats are a prelude to military action or nuclear and long-range missile tests.

Subject: How Gut Bacteria Are Shaking Up Cancer Research

Top scientists at Roche Holding AG and AstraZeneca Plc are sizing up potential allies in the fight against cancer: the trillions of bacteria that live in the human body.

"Five years ago, if you had asked me about bacteria in your gut playing an important role in your systemic immune response, I probably would have laughed it off," Daniel Chen, head of cancer immunotherapy research at Roche’s Genentech division, said in a phone interview. "Most of us immunologists now believe that there really is an important interaction there."

Two recent studies published in the journal Science have intrigued Chen and others who are developing medicines called immunotherapies that stimulate the body’s ability to fight tumors.

In November, University of Chicago researchers wrote that giving mice Bifidobacterium, which normally resides in the gastrointestinal tract, was as effective as an immunotherapy in controlling the growth of skin cancer. Combining the two practically eliminated tumor growth. In the second study, scientists in France found that some bacterial species activated a response to immunotherapy, which didn’t occur without the microbes.

BREAKING: MARCO RUBIO SUSPENDS 2016 PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN AFTER FLORIDA LOSS


Congratulates Donald Trump on Florida victory.

Hogan Watches Media Closely, Doesn’t Hold Back In Emails

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — While the Maryland General Assembly’s presiding officers rely on staff to read and respond to email on their state accounts, Gov. Larry Hogan is in the driver’s seat of his. The 59-year-old Republican is blunt with his staffers when it comes to defending his administration and protecting his image.

The Associated Press obtained hundreds of pages of emails from the governor and leading lawmakers over a week’s time in a PublicInformation Act request as part of a Sunshine Week initiative. From complaints about editorials to how he looks in a photograph, Hogan doesn’t hold back when he reads something he doesn’t like.

“What idiots,” Hogan wrote, after complaining to his deputy director ofcommunications about a reporter’s story on a budget matter on Feb. 5 and asking the staffer to correct him.

DONALD TRUMP VS THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA

by RAHEEM KASSAM How the ‘Hitlerizing’ Media Have Painted A Target Over Trump

I’ve been saying it for a while now, the mainstream media, alongside the politicians running against Donald Trump on both sides, are creating the conditions in which it would be totally “understandable” if there were an attempt on Trump’s life. Seriously.

Think about it. First, they made Donald Trump the enemy of this race, albeit the butt of the jokes. Then the joke got unfunny. Mr. Trump started attracting serious support. And the primary victories came. And the other candidates dropped out. And now we’re down to just four. Three in reality. Subtract Rubio or Kasich at your discretion. Maybe you deduct both. We’re down to two.

Now Donald Trump is Adolf Hitler. Because people raise their hands at his rallies. THEY RAISED THEIR HANDS WHEN ASKED TO. That must make them Nazis. Forget that Mrs. Clinton’s supporters have done the same thing. Forget it. He’s Hitler. Heute America, morgen die Welt!

Serbia: Missiles on Flight to US From Lebanon Intercepted

Authorities in Serbia intercepted guided missiles with explosive warheads on a flight to the U.S. and are now investigating the cargo in which the American-made weapons were found.

Television network N1 said authorities were alerted to the AGM-114 Hellfire missiles by bomb-sniffing dogs after the Air Serbia flight, which originated in Beirut, landed in Belgrade, according to The Associated Press. Officials said the cargo was bound for Portland, Oregon.

The Portland division of the FBI told the Huffington Post that it did not have additional information on the report but was aware of it. Serbia media was quoted by the Post as saying that the FBI was helping with the investigation of the missiles.

BREAKING: Trump Team Up?

Reports are emerging that a Trump-Cruz teamup may be in the works after tonight. It's known that there has been some coordination between the Kasich and Rubio campaign, and that Cruz has been left out. Well, it seems like the Texas Senator may have found a friend, according to Newt Gingrich:

Regardless of Kasich and Rubio — whom many are calling mere spoilers at this point in the race — former House Speaker Newt Gingrich thinks that if Trump wins big in Florida today, the party “won’t be able to stop him.” And even if that prediction doesn’t surprise you, Gingrich’s prediction about a Trump and Cruz alliance might.

Via Breitbart:

“If Trump gets big numbers in Florida, you’re not going to be able to stop him. You’ll just tear the party apart,” he said.

“If Trump wins Florida by the margin anticipated, then [Sen. Marco] Rubio could stay in just to affect the numbers, but he won’t be a serious candidate anymore,” Gingrich said.

One point to keep in mind here, is that Trump has typically underperformed the polls — and more so in closed primary states, such as Florida. So Gingrich’s “if Trump wins Florida by the margin anticipated,” is at this point still a big “IF.”

Subject: ICE: 124 Illegals Freed From Jail Later Charged in 138 Murder Cases

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has revealed that 124 illegal immigrant criminals released from jail by the Obama administration since 2010 have been subsequently charged with murder.

A Center for Immigration Studies report on the data from ICE to the Senate Judiciary Committee added that the committee is not releasing the names of the murder suspects.

"The criminal aliens released by ICE in these years — who had already been convicted of thousands of crimes — are responsible for a significant crime spree in American communities, including 124 new homicides. Inexplicably, ICE is choosing to release some criminal aliens multiple times," said the report written by CIS's respected director of policy studies, Jessica M. Vaughan.

She added that 75 percent were released due to court orders or because their countries wouldn't take them back.

What's more, her report said that in 2014, ICE released 30,558 criminal aliens who had been convicted of 92,347 crimes. Only 3 percent have been deported.

Her analysis is the latest shocking review of Obama's open-border immigration policy. And despite the high number of illegal immigrants charged with murder, the list doesn't include those released by over 300 so-called "sanctuary cities" and those ICE declined to take into custody.

Customer With Concealed Carry Permit Shoots Ax-wielding Attacker

A customer at a 7-Eleven store outside Seattle shot and killed a masked man who attacked a clerk with an ax early Sunday.

Investigators said the shooting happened at the store in White Center at approximately 5:45 a.m. local time. Witnesses said the man entered the store and swung a hatchet toward the customer before turning his attention to the clerk.

As the assailant attacked, the customer pulled out a pistol and fired, hitting the suspect. The clerk suffered minor injuries to his stomach and the suspect was pronounced dead at the scene.

The customer who shot the suspect is described as a 60-year-old Seattle man who visits the store every morning to get coffee. His name was not immediately released.

Authorities said the man who shot the attacker had a concealed carry permit and likely would not face charges as a result of his action.

A beautiful true story

This Candidate Tells the Truth About Democrats

Ted Cruz has a theory about why the Democrats want to keep illegal immigrants in this country:
John Hayward ‎@Doc_0

Cruz: Democrats support illegal immigration because they view illegal aliens as potential voters; GOP interests view them as cheap labor

As Townhall notes:

At Wednesday’s Democratic debate on Univision, Clinton and Sanders promisedpermanent homes to illegals currently in the country.

Taking a much different tone on Thursday, Cruz pledged to end federal funding to any sanctuary cities - cities where illegal immigrants do not have to be reported to authorities - as well as put an end to welfare benefits that are being funneled to illegals.

The writing is on the wall. Which ever Republican candidate you support, get out and vote. It's clear what's at stake.

Is a Key US Ally on the Brink of Nuclear War?

Americans are rightly concerned about the spread of ISIS in the Middle East and the lack of security on our southern border. But as of now, those should be the least of our concerns, as tensions between North and South Korea are now a threat to bubble over and start a nuclear war:

U.S. and South Korean troops staged a big amphibious landing exercise on Saturday, storming simulated North Korean beach defenses amid heightened tension and threats by the North to annihilate its enemies.

The landing and assault drills on South Korea's east coast were part of eight weeks of joint exercises between the allies which the South has said are the largest ever. The North has denounced the exercises as "nuclear war moves" and threatened to respond with an all-out offensive.

Tension on the Korean peninsula has been high since the North conducted its fourth nuclear test in January and followed that with a long-range rocket launch last month, triggering new U.N. sanctions.

About 55 U.S. marine aircraft and 30 U.S. and South Korean ships, including the USS Bonhomme Richard and USS Boxer, which carry AV-8B Harrier attack jets and V-22 Osprey aircrafts, took part in the assault on beaches near Pohang city, the U.S. navy said.

Team Trump vs. #BlackLivesMatter: Round 1

Donald Trump canceled his Chicago campaign event Friday amid safety concerns as hundreds of protesters clashed with supporters at the event, which was held on the campus of University of Illinois at Chicago Pavilion.

The Trump campaign issued a statement at around 6:40 p.m. local time.

“Mr. Trump just arrived in Chicago and after meeting with law enforcement has determined that for the safety of all of the tens of thousands of people that have gathered in and around the arena, tonight’s rally will be postponed to another date. Thank you very much for your attendance and please go in peace,” the campaign said.

The cancellation led to cheers among the protesters, many of whom were chanting out the name of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.
by Trump’s supporters responded with chants of “USA! USA!,” according to The Daily Caller’s Eric Owens, who was on scene at the event.

We Warned You: Chicago Trump Shutdown Is Just the Beginning

For the astute readers of Breitbart News, last night’s battle in Chicago may come as a shock, but it should come as no surprise.

No other news organization has documented the rise and origins of the groups behind Friday night’s madhouse as thoroughly as the team at Breitbart News. From its origins being exposed in the film Occupy Unmasked before the election cycle to covering and exposing every aspect of the new Black Lives Matter incarnation, we’ve given readers the intellectual ammunition to understand the dangerous rise of the new American left in the Obama era.

Just this week, we published two 2,500 word expos├ęs that laid bare not just the history of deception and media collusion that made last night’s rout of Donald Trump’s rally in the Windy City possible, but we also examined the 50 years of progressive hatred that caused such an outpouring of bile on social media after the death of former first lady Nancy Reagan.

We believe that those who don’t know history are condemned to repeat it, and as we pointed out in January in a definitive piece, we both illuminated the past and predicted the future.:

Should either Cruz or Trump be the nominee, expect Black Lives Matter’s army to take to the streets and try to shut them down at every opportunity.

For that reason, the current political season is set to be even more divisive than either of the last two election cycles, which had already set a very high bar for vitriol.

We also pointed out that Donald Trump would be the main focus of this ire, but that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) or any other GOP nominee would be next on the radicals’ hit list.

This is one of the reasons that Donald Trump, more than any other political candidate on the scene right now, has incurred so much of the wrath and anger of Black Lives Matter. They are keenly aware that he simply will not play their game. The other current frontrunner for the Republican nomination is Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who has already demonstrated that he is no cupcake either.

Soros-Funded MoveOn.org Takes Credit for Violence in Chicago

Ilya Sheyman, a failed Illinois contender for Congress and the executive director of MoveOn.org Political Action, has taken credit for the violence at a cancelled Trump event last night in Chicago. He promised similar violence and disruption will occur at future Trump political events leading up to the election.

“Mr. Trump and the Republican leaders who support him and his hate-filled rhetoric should be on notice after tonight’s events,” on the George Soros funded MoveOn web page. “To all of those who took to the streets of Chicago, we say thank you for standing up and saying enough is enough. To Donald Trump, and the GOP, we say, welcome to the general election.”

MoveOn has consistently functioned as a lobby group for the policies of the Obama administration, including the disaster of Obamacare and the continuation of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and the escalation of the war on terror that has turned America into a police and surveillance state. In 2007 it backed a bill trotted out by then Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to continue financing the occupation of Iraq.

It was founded with the help of the financier George Soros who donated $1.46 million to get the organization rolling. Linda Pritzker of the Hyatt hotel family gave the group a $4 million donation.

The violent demonstration in Chicago on Friday may represent a precursor to the sort of activity the organization will engage in as it tries to “shut down” its political enemies and elect either Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders.

On Friday night many of the protesters shouted “Bernie!” and held placards announcing their support for the socialist Democrat.

Huckabee to Newsmax: Trump Is Leading a 'Revolution'

Donald Trump's predominance in the GOP primary reflects "nothing less" than the "peaceful overthrow" of the government in a "revolution" against the "ruling class," former 2016 presidential aspirant Mike Huckabee declared on Newsmax TV Saturday.

During a hard-hitting and candid interview with "Battleground Florida: Fight for the Primary" hosts J.D. Hayworth, John Bachman, and Miranda Khan, the former Arkansas governor argued that Trump has repeatedly proved the resonance of his message with American voters.

"Here is a guy who has said some very inflammatory, very intemperate things and rather than it hurt him, it has actually propelled him because that's how people feel," Huckabee said.

"People are angry. I think we're seeing nothing less than the overthrow of our government… It's a peaceful overthrow so far. We're going to do it by ballots, not bullets, thank God, but this is a revolution. The people are that upset with the ruling class and frankly, they ought to be."

Huckabee added that he felt "nothing would be better for this country than to have an utter disruption of the ruling class in Washington."

It's Trump's unapologetic stances that have earned him voters' admiration, Huckabee says.

"He has been the Teddy Roosevelt who's charging up San Juan Hill and there is no retreat," Huckabee adds. "Win or lose, he's going to dig in and he's not going to ever pull the troops back."

That's what voters want, Huckabee contends.

College reporter accidentally calls Hillary “Monica”- but what he said next was even better! Read more: http://rightwingnews.com/#ixzz42t74exEe

College reporter gets close enough to ask questions to Hillary Clinton, but gaffes and accidentally calls Hillary Clinton “Monica.”To preface this story, moments before seeing Hillary, the reporter was talking to another woman whose actual name is Monica. His brain slipped, big time, and when Hillary was close enough to talk to, the reporter hilariously, and accidentally, called Hillary by the name of the woman who got a little too close to Bill Clinton.

Finally after waiting for much longer than anticipated Hillary came out to greet the press, I was towards the end and she walked down the line shaking hands of the small few that were left, walking in front of her was the woman who was in charge of media for the campaign shaking hands as well thanking people for staying.

At some point her head of media must have stepped back to do something because without looking I reached out and shook the hand coming towards me, looking to my side and saying “it’s nice meeting you, Monica” as a farewell to the MSNBC correspondent next to me.

I then realized the face the arm was attached to was in fact not the head of media, but the former Secretary of State.

To be frank, I have NO idea why my instant response was what it was. I freaked out because it was my first time meeting a presidential candidate hopeful face to face. Right after I looked up to see that it was Secretary Clinton holding my hand, and recollecting that her husbands accused mistress’ name was Monica I instantly went into blabber mode.

“Oh I meant her… not Lewinsky.”

Subject: Voters Slam Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio for Blaming Chicago Rally Shutdown on Donald Trump

Supporters of Sens. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) took to social media to slam the freshman senators for blaming leftists shutting down a Trump Chicago rally on GOP frontrunner Donald Trump.

“I think a campaign bears responsibility for creating an environment, when the candidate urges supporters to engage in physical violence — to punch people in the face. The predictable consequence of that is that it escalates and today is unlikely to be the last such instance. We earlier today in St. Louis over thirty arrested. That’s not how our politics should occur,” Cruz said Friday. “You know, the City of Chicago in 1968 saw some ugly days when politics descended into hatred and incivility and even violence and it is my hope that in 2016 that we can appeal to our better angels and avoid going down that road once again.”

Cruz supporters, incensed by the Texas senator’s blame game, stormed social media to express their anger. Top comments on a Friday Facebook post promoting a Cruz “victory fund” drew furious responses (comments quoted here are unedited):

Jerry Shalow: Cruz you lost my vote for using this protest for your political game. Rubio also. Trump has my vote. How about the violations of the 1st amendment TED!!!!!!! Condone the violence what you just did.

Pappy Beagles: I’m a Texan, I voted for you for the senate, and was supporting you for president, up until you blamed Trump for the savage behavior of Hillary and Bernie supporters in Chicago. I just sent a $100.00 contribution to a billionaire, and i’m retired on a fixed income, so guess this is goodbye to you, and I am now firmly on the Trump wagon.

Gayle Natale: Mr. Cruz, I just listened to your response regarding the protestors who caused Mr. Trump to cancel his rally in Chicago. You did not mention the violation of the first amendment once during your speech. I am extremely disappointed in you...

UN Green Climate Fund Increases Staffing By 150% After Obama Contributes $500 Million Of Taxpayer Money Read more: http://rightwingnews.com/#ixzz42t6VUoWb

One of the problems with many organizations, be that environmental or about helping people, is that they spend a huge amount of their “budget”, said budget which usually comes from donations, fundraising, and/or taxpayer money, on staffing, fundraising, and other things instead of the causes and people it was meant to support. If you’ve ever read Michael Crichton’s State Of Fear, this is what so many environmental groups do. There are certain groups which always show up during disasters that I refuse to donate too, because only a small percentage of the money I donate makes it to those in need. Which is despicable.

When Obama gave away $500 million in taxpayer money to the GCF, I wrote of the plan to increase staffing

So, instead of being spent on ‘climate change’ initiatives, a goodly chunk will simply go towards paying for administration. Will the UN provide all the details on how the money is spent? Doubtful.

And here’s the answer

(CNS News) The U.N. Green Climate Fund’s governing board has approved a proposal to hike the number of permanent staff at the body’s secretariat by 150 percent by the end of next year – from the current 56 positions to 140.

The decision, made at a meeting at the GCF’s headquarters in Songdo, South Korea last week, came days after the Obama administration confirmed payment of the first $500,000 of a $3-billion, four-year pledge to the fund, whose aim is to help developing countries reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to phenomena blamed on climate change.

The staff will make a nice bit of moola, instead of working for peanuts, “paying their fair share”, to use liberal talking points

The GCF’s administration budget for 2016, agreed at the last board meeting four months ago, is $29.157 million. The breakdown is $3.64 million for the board, $24.64 million for the secretariat, and $0.87 million for the trustee – the entity responsible for the receipt, investment and transfer of financial contributions.

How Twitter Is Ruining Your Life

There are approximately 20 televisions in the open office where I work, which means that for the past nine months everything I have done has been watched over by 20 Donald J. Trumps, leering at me from all corners of the room. Your articles are a mess, they shout. Sad!

I share this space with approximately 20 coworkers, all young, all rambunctious, all driven mad, like me, by the orange billionaire insulting them from every angle. I keep Twitter open at all times, which connects me to a personalized list of 800 other journalists, writers, and experts offloading their content on the world. I keep Gmail open in another tab so I can listen attentively for a ping heralding the arrival of an article for me to edit.

I had long suspected that this work environment was not doing wonders for my productivity. My suspicion has been confirmed by Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World, a book by Cal Newport that should be read by everyone who labors with his brain for a living.

Newport’s view of how most people use technology does not belong to the regressive, burn-it-all-down school of modern critique. He does not, to my knowledge, live on a farm or wear capes or pine for the days of trade guilds and craftsmanship and getting back to nature. To the contrary, he is an associate professor of computer science at Georgetown University whose work includes such riveting articles as “A Disruption-Resistant MAC Layer for Multichannel Wireless Networks” and “Making Wireless Algorithm Theory More Useful.” An ardent foe of technology he is not.

Newport contends that most people use network tools, particularly social media, to shirk the hard work of thinking and building that require feats of concentration he calls “deep work.” Deep work, Newport writes, is “performed in a state of distraction-free concentration that push your cognitive capacities to their limit.”

Should The GOP Choose Another Nominee If Trump Doesn’t Have 1,237 Delegates By The Convention?

POLITICAL parties are mentioned nowhere in the Constitution, and the party nominating process offers few of the protections associated with the ideal of “one man one vote.” Voters in early states have far more influence than voters in later ones. Votes in hard-to-attend caucuses effectively count more than votes in high-turnout primaries. Some primaries are open to party loyalists; others to all comers. The rules that assign convention delegates are byzantine, the delegate selection process is various, and a few states rely on conventions and cut the voters out entirely.

As Donald Trump attempts to clamber to the Republican nomination over a still-divided opposition, there will be a lot of talk about how all these rules and quirks and complexities are just a way for insiders to steal the nomination away from him, in a kind of establishment coup against his otherwise inevitable victory.

….The weird rigors of this process have not always protected the parties from politically disastrous nominees, like Barry Goldwater or George McGovern. But Goldwater and McGovern were both men of principle and experience and civic virtue, leading factions that had not yet come to full maturity. This made them political losers; it did not make them demagogues.

Trump, though, is cut from a very different cloth. He’s an authoritarian, not an ideologue, and his antecedents aren’t Goldwater or McGovern; they’re figures like George Wallace and Huey Long, with a side of the fictional Buzz Windrip from Sinclair Lewis’s “It Can’t Happen Here.” No modern political party has nominated a candidate like this; no serious political party ever should.

Subject: Obama: Candidates should stop provoking violence

In a clear message to Donald Trump Saturday, President Obama told presidential candidates to stop provoking violence.

"They should speak out against violence, and reject efforts to spread fear or turn us against one another," Obama told a group of Democratic supporters in Austin, Texas on Saturday. "And if they refuse to do that, they don't deserve our support."

"The best leaders, the leaders who are worthy of our votes, remind us that even in a country as big and diverse and inclusive as ours, what we've got in common is far more important than what divides any of us," the president said.

Tilting Toward Fun: A Museum For Pinball Wizards To Come And Play

When most people want to play a game, the first thing they reach for is likely a smartphone or tablet. Actual pinball machines have become quaint curiosities, but a father-son duo in California is keeping these old-school games alive in a museum.

The Museum of Pinball is hidden away in an old industrial building, just off Interstate 10 and about 90 miles east of Los Angeles in Banning, Calif. It's pretty quiet when the rows upon rows of pinball machines are not turned on. But once the switch is flipped, it gets loud.

"I built this collection picking them up one by one, and I put them in my house," says John Weeks, who founded the museum together with his son, Johnathan Weeks. "I'd fill up buildings with them, storage units."

Their collection is huge. There are 650 games ranging from vintage 1950s-era machines all the way up to ones based on current TV shows such as The Walking Dead. John began amassing the games in the early 1980s.

Kasich, Rubio waver on Trump support

Republican presidential contenders, John Kasich and Marco Rubio, began backpeddling support Saturday for Donald Trump becoming the party's nominee.

Gov. Kasich of Ohio, facing a primary election in his home state on Tuesday, told reporters that Trump is "getting close" to being disqualified from being the Republican nominee.

"He's got to tone it down, because pitting one group against another is toxic and divisive," Kasich said.

"There is no place for a national leader to prey on the fears of people who live in our great country," he said earlier.

The governor's comments came after a day of Trump rallies in the Buckeye State, where the boisterous presidential contender from New York managed to attack just about everyone from Kasich and Rubio, to Sen. Ted Cruz and Hillary Clinton.

Sen. Rubio also wavered Saturday on his pledge to support Trump for president if he wins the Republican nomination in July.

"It is getting harder every day," Rubio told reporters.

excited to be recognized for achieving national standards that foster effectiveness and promote continuous quality improvement,” said Lori Brewster, Health Officer of the Wicomico County Health Department. “The accreditation process helps to ensure that the programs and services we provide are as responsive as possible to the needs of our community. With accreditation, the Health Department is demonstrating increased accountability and credibility to the public, funders, elected officials and partner organizations with which we work.”

To receive accreditation, a health department must undergo a rigorous, multi-faceted, peer reviewed assessment process to ensure it meets or exceeds a set of quality standards and measures. Public health departments play a critical role in protecting and improving the health of people and communities. “The Wicomico County Health Department is honored to serve our community through a range of programs and services that address many concerns faced by county residents,” Brewster said. These include promoting
healthy behaviors; preventing diseases and injuries; ensuring access to safe food, water, clean air, and life-saving immunizations; and preparing for and responding to public health emergencies.

No remorse from administrators in Duke lacrosse rape hoax

It's been nearly 10 years since members of the Duke University lacrosse team held the party that would destroy their lives due to a false accusation of rape.

None of the campus administrators who branded the young men as rapists before the evidence was collected ever faced consequences, and it appears they have no remorse for their actions.

Richard Brodhead is still president of Duke, and in an interview with the Duke Chronicle, said he was "certainly at ease in my conscience" regarding the way he and his administration treated the innocent students who were falsely accused. Brodhead also said "I don't spend my time looking back on this" and said the whole incident "was distracting."

K.C. Johnson, who co-wrote the book on the case, pointed to a statement Brodhead made in 2006, in the heat of the accusation, where he presumed the guilt of his own students and blamed them for possibly being falsely accused.

"If our students did what is alleged, it is appalling to the worst degree," Brodhead said back then. "If they didn't do it, whatever they did is bad enough."

This is victim-blaming, yet those who perpetuate the belief that rape is rampant on college campuses won't admit that the falsely accused are victims, too.

HILLARY GAFFE: WE 'DIDN'T LOSE A SINGLE PERSON IN LIBYA' She forgets 4 Americans killed

Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton committed her second gaffe in as many days on the campaign trail Monday night, claiming that the U.S. "didn't lose a single person" in Libya during her time as secretary of state.

Clinton made the comment defending her push for regime change in the war-torn North African nation at an Illinois town hall hosted by MSNBC.

"Now, is Libya perfect? It isn't," Clinton said. After contrasting her approach toward Libya with the ongoing bloodshed in Syria's civil war, Clinton said "Libya was a different kind of calculation and we didn't lose a single person ... We didn’t have a problem in supporting our European and Arab allies in working with NATO."

Clinton made no mention of the Sept. 11, 2012 terror attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya that killed four Americans: U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, information officer Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.

George Soros Funds Ferguson Protests, Hopes to Spur Civil Action

There’s a solitary man at the financial center of the Ferguson protest movement. No, it’s not victim Michael Brown or Officer Darren Wilson. It’s not even the Rev. Al Sharpton, despite his ubiquitous campaign on TV and the streets.

Rather, it’s liberal billionaire George Soros, who has built a business empire that dominates across the ocean in Europe while forging a political machine powered by nonprofit foundations that impacts American politics and policy, not unlike what he did with MoveOn.org.

Mr. Soros spurred the Ferguson protest movement through years of funding and mobilizing groups across the U.S., according to interviews with key players and financial records reviewed by The Washington Times.

In all, Mr. Soros gave at least $33 million in one year to support already-established groups that emboldened the grass-roots, on-the-ground activists in Ferguson, according to the most recent tax filings of his nonprofit Open Society Foundations.

Soros-sponsored organizations helped mobilize protests in Ferguson, building grass-roots coalitions on the ground backed by a nationwide online and social media campaign.

Other Soros-funded groups made it their job to remotely monitor and exploit anything related to the incident that they could portray as a conservative misstep, and to develop academic research and editorials to disseminate to the news media to keep the story alive.

Anti-Semitism Spikes at Top U.S. Colleges

Top colleges throughout the United States are experiencing an unprecedented rise in anti-Semitic incidents and anti-Jewish behavior, according to a study that determined the behavior is being fueled by a rise in the number of campus organizations promoting inflammatory anti-Israel propaganda.

The survey, which focused on 113 U.S. campuses with large Jewish populations, concluded that at least 70 percent of those schools surveyed experienced “one or more kinds of anti-Semitic activity” in the past year.

There were more than 300 anti-Semitic incidents in total at these schools in 2015 alone, according to the report, which was compiled and released Monday by the AMCHA Initiative, a non-profit organization that monitors anti-Semitism on campus.

The rise in the number and severity of these incidents is directly related to anti-Israel activities coordinated by a pro-Palestinian organizations that support the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement, or BDS, which seeks to delegitimize the Jewish state.

The study marks the first time that a statistical analysis has empirically tied these anti-Israel organizations to the sharp rise in anti-Semitic behavior on campus.

At least “99 percent” of schools with one or more active anti-Zionist groups had one or more incidents of anti-Semitic activity, whereas only 16 percent of schools with no active anti-Zionist student group had incidents of overall anti-Semitic activity,” the study found.

Is Bill Clinton in the FBI crosshairs too?

In the unfolding political and legal drama surrounding Hillary Clinton and her private server, one name has been conspicuously missing.

Bill Clinton.

There has been scant mention of the former president’s possible role and potential exposure in the server/classified material controversy, which now represents an existential threat to Mrs. Clinton’s presidential ambitions. But perhaps his role may be more central that we’ve been led to believe.

Rather than simply focusing on Mrs. Clinton’s actions as secretary of state, the FBI investigation may be proceeding along two tracks: his and hers. So far, two areas of focus have been mentioned.

One is the possible abuse of highly sensitive information by Mrs. Clinton through her use of a private, unsecured server. The other involves possible violations of public corruption law: whether she and Mr. Clinton used her position as secretary of state to further the interests of the Clinton Foundation. When these two apparently separate tracks are looked at conjointly, two major questions arise concerning Mr. Clinton.

First, did Mr. Clinton, in fact, own, pay for and house on his property the server used by Mrs. Clinton while she was secretary of state? And second, did he touch, read, see and/or use any of the classified documents that appeared on that server, and if so, did he have the appropriate clearances and approval?

Let’s take a step back.

Subject: Trump Request: ‘Please Do Not Touch or Harm the Protester’

TAMPA, Florida — Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has again begun warning those at his rallies not to get into fights with protesters, even issuing instructions on how to handle interruptions by telling supporters not to “touch or harm the protester.”

In Tampa on Monday afternoon, before Mr. Trump was scheduled to take the stage, an announcer issued strict instructions saying that while the rally is private and the GOP presidential hopeful can kick people out, it’s up to police, not Trump supporters.

“Some people have taken advantage of Mr. Trump’s hospitality by choosing to disrupt his rallies by using them as an opportunity to promote their own political messages. While they certainly have the right to free speech, this is a private event paid for by Mr. Trump. We have provided a safe protest area outside the venue for all protesters,” the announcer said.

“If a protester starts demonstrating in the area around you, please do not touch or harm the protester.."

No-Drill Dentistry: Fluoride Treatments Can Prevent Cavities In Adults

If the high-pitched whirr of a dentist's drill as it bores into your molar terrifies you, good news! There could be fewer fillings in your future. A painless way to prevent cavities in adults is gaining traction.

"OK, Alice, we are going to put the fluoride varnish on your teeth," says Marion Manski, director of the Dental Hygiene Program at the University of Maryland School of Dentistry. Fluoride varnish is standard practice for children's teeth, but Manski's patient, Alice Clash, is 91 years old. Like many older patients, Clash is taking medications that cause dry mouth, which puts her at high risk for cavities.

So Manski takes a skinny brush and a little pot of yellowish liquid and paints the varnish on Clash's teeth. "We know that saliva helps us wash away bacteria and food in the mouth," Manski says. "The fluoride varnish will help that."

Meet the Nut Who Attacked Trump

The man who rushed the stage the other day in what appears to be an attempt to attack Donald Trump has been identified. In news that should be absolutely shocking to no one, he's a Bernie supporter! As the Daily Caller notes:

Tommy DiMassimo, the man who was tackled by Secret Service trying to rush the stage at a Trump rally, told CNN he did it because “Donald Trump is a bully.”

DiMassimo, 22, a Bernie Sanders supporter, is a senior at Wright State University. He’s also now facing a court date Wednesday on charges of disorderly conduct and inducing panic.

He thought he would be able to make it on stage and “take his podium away from him and take his mic away from him and send a message to all people out in the country who wouldn’t consider themselves racist, who wouldn’t consider themselves approving of what type of violence Donald Trump is allowing in his rallies, and send them a message that we can be strong, that we can find our strength and we can stand up against Donald Trump and against this new wave he’s ushering in of truly just violent white supremacist ideas.”

Another day, another college student who doesn't understand the meaning of free speech.

Subject: Hillary: World Leaders Asking to Endorse Me to Stop Trump

World leaders are calling her privately to ask if they can endorse her presidential campaign in hopes of stopping Donald Trump, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Sunday.

A Trump presidency would hurt America's standing in the world, Clinton argued.

"I am already receiving messages from leaders, and I am having foreign leaders ask if they can endorse me to stop Donald Trump," Clinton said during a CNN Democratic forum. "And I am like, 'No, this is up to Americans, thank you very much."

When asked by forum moderator Jake Tapper if she'd liked to identify any of the leaders who have endorsed her, Clinton declined.

Majority of Palestinians Support Ongoing Violence, New Poll Shows

TEL AVIV – Nearly 60% of Palestinians support the current so-called wave of terror attacks against Israelis, according to a new survey published Sunday.

Just 41% of those polled oppose the violence.

The survey found a sharp contrast between Gaza and the West Bank, with 79% of Gazans backing the attacks, compared to 51% of Palestinians in the West Bank.

The survey was conducted by the Palestinian research institute, the Jerusalem Media and Communications Center (JMCC) earlier this month, and covered some 1,200 Palestinians from the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, with a margin of error of three percentage points.

The two-state solution still remains the most acceptable resolution to the conflict, with an overwhelming majority of nearly 70% opposing any change in the official policy of the Palestinian Authority.

Only 24% of respondents supported a change in policy demanding a one-state solution with Arabs and Jews living side by side.

ACORN: Obama Campaign Voter Registrations Removed Prior to Ohio Primary

HOUSTON, Texas — Election integrity and voters’ rights organization True the Vote announced that it successfully worked with officials in Ohio to remove duplicate voter registrations prior to the Ohio primary. These registrations were originally submitted by left-leaning and Democrat organizations, including ACORN.

Approximately 30 percent of voters registered twice in the Cleveland area and they did so with falsified birth dates, social security numbers, and other identification. These were submitted not only by ACORN, but by Field Works, The Strategy Network, Organizing for America, and other left-of-center organizations, says True the Vote (TTV) in a statement obtained by Breitbart Texas.

Upon receipt of True the Vote’s research, 711 duplicate voter registrations were removed in Cuyahoga County and 465 sets were processed in Franklin County. TTV says it has been notified that thousands of duplicate voter registrations have also been removed in North Carolina.

“Because of Ohio’s consistent role as a decisive swing state in America’s elections, it has a duty to ensure that its voter records are in the best shape possible,” True the Vote Founder Catherine Engelbrecht said. “Having duplicate voters in Ohio’s poll books not only creates confusion at the polling place, but raises the possibility of fraudulent double voting. The Buckeye State has recently seen first-hand just how far some are willing to go to see their candidate or cause win.”

Iraq’s Coming Apocalypse

No, it’s not ISIS or rampaging Shi’a militias. It’s the Mosul Dam, Iraq’s largest, and its possible collapse, perhaps leading to millions of deaths. Those in the know worry catastrophe could strike this spring, as snows melt and build an uncontrollable water pressure.

Hastily built in wartime for the dictator Saddam Hussein by a German-Italian consortium, the Mosul Dam was located where it is because one of Hussein’s cronies came from the area and used his pull, despite the fact that engineers knew from the start that its porous gypsum base could not sustain such a huge structure.

What was then called the Saddam Dam opened in 1984 and within two years needed constant grouting, that is, day and night infusions of microfine cement, lots of it — 200 million pounds over the decades — to keep it from collapsing. The grouting keeps the foundational problem from worsening but does not solve it.

The years went by; fortunately, there was no disaster on the American watch. Then, during a fateful 10-day period, Aug. 7-17, 2014, the Islamic State (ISIS) seized control of the dam. While the group neither sabotaged nor blew up the structure, grouting stopped for six weeks and the whole repair regime — especially the skilled workers and the supply of cement — henceforth became less consistent.

As a result, the dam has steadily weakened over the past 19 months, to the point that experts worry that a surge of spring waters will overwhelm it and cause its collapse.

Napolitano: Clinton's Answer to Indictment Question Demonstrates Ignorance and Deceit

CBS Using Children To Attack Donald Trump

You know you are hitting an all time low when you have to spend your longest morning segment interviewing children on why they wouldn't vote for Donald Trump.

You know, the Main Stream Media is always brainwashing everyone on how honest, fair and trustworthy they are because they claim to be fair and balanced. Really? Then where are the kids that say they would vote for Donald Trump. 

The Main Stream Media is their own kind of Mafia Hit Men, (Soldiers) who assassinate  whomever they don't like or agree with. It's no wonder Blogs are tearing them apart. Viewers can voice their opinion anonymously without fear of retaliation. 

It's a shame the Unites States of America is proving, (media wise) we are no different from Russia, China and Cuba.

Putin Orders The Start Of Russian Troop Withdrawal From Syria

Russian President Vladimir Putin said Monday he has ordered the withdrawal of the majority of Russian troops from Syria. The pullout, which he said was coordinated with Syrian President Bashar Assad, is slated to begin Tuesday.

Speaking in a meeting with Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, Putin said the objective of Russia's intervention — disrupting ISIS and other terror groups — had "been fulfilled," and had laid the groundwork for more intense peace talks.

"I believe that the task put before the defence ministry and Russian armed forces has, on the whole, been fulfilled," Putin said, according to the Guardian. "With the participation of the Russian military ... the Syrian armed forces and patriotic Syrian forces have been able to achieve a fundamental turnaround in the fight against international terrorism and have taken the initiative in almost all respects."

Ted Cruz on the Attack

Ted Cruz won the Wyoming primary yesterday, and is now within 90 delegates of Donald Trump. On Friday, Cruz joined Sean Hannity to talk about the importance of cutting government. The conversation immediately shifted to Donald Trump, and Cruz let loose. As RedState notes:

HANNITY: How do you get Washington to spend less. I’ve always liked the “penny plan.” Because it’s simple. You cut one cent of of each dollar for six years and you get to a balanced budget. But that’s part of it. What would you do?

CRUZ: The only way you can do it with, one, strong conservative leadership in the White House backed up by the people. You know, one of the striking things last night, in the entire course of the debate it became very evident that Donald Trump has no solutions to any of these problems.

HANNITY: [unintelligible] But I think the question most Americans want to know is how do you get to a balanced budget. But…eliminate baseline budgeting…

CRUZ: All of that matters but the most import piece, if you want to turn around the deficit and the debt, is economic growth. If we stay at 1 and 2 percent economic growth…

HANNITY: …can’t do it…

CRUZ: …the math doesn’t work. You can’t cut enough and Donald, at the end of the day, doesn’t understand where growth comes from. Because Donld, he’s said a lot of times, you know, nobody knows the system better than he does. And he may well be right. Because Donald is the system, he is Washington, and notice his perspective, Donald’s perspective is government is the answer to everything. That whatever the problem is, we need more government. And to every issue he doesn’t really disagree with Hillary and Obama on substance, he just says they’re not doing a good enough job, he’ll negotiate a better deal with socialize health care and ObamaCare. And here’s the key, if you want economic growth you know two words that never come out of Donald’s mouth: small business. Because to Donald’s perspective the economy is about giant corporations, New York billionaires, sitting down with politicians, whether it’s Hillary Clinton or John Boehner and suckling off government and getting rich at the expense of the working men and women. Listen, to heck with big business. The focus of growth has got to be small business.

Cruz's tactic- of asking Trump for specific policy proposals and getting him to articulate specifics seems to be the most effective strategy offered so far.

Trump vs. Bernie?

As the Daily Caller has pointed out, Donald Trump's rallies have been disrupted by an organized campaign of left-wing groups. The majority of these groups support an agenda so far left it would make Hillary Clinton blush. Donald Trump, perhaps sensing this, has issued a challenge to their favorite candidate- Bernie Sanders. Trump challenged Bernie today, and we're anxious to see how it goes. If this emboldens protesters, we could be looking at the most violent election since 1968.

Bernie Sanders is lying when he says his disruptors aren't told to go to my events. Be careful Bernie, or my supporters will go to yours!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 13, 2016

You Know, I Really Have To Agree!


Please Make America Great Again Mr. Trump


I'm Ready


Uh Huh


THE TIME IS NOW!

This was the theme of the CPAC conference this past weekend. There was great satisfaction (and relief!) to be surrounded by 10,000 people who hold your beliefs and philosophies concerning government and the Constitution. After six years of battling to get our message out, I know I am worn and weary, but this weekend convinced me we have almost won! Now is not the time to get discouraged or step away. We are THIS close to getting our message across!

This election season has Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, two antiestablishment candidates, as the first two choices with the most electoral votes so far. Americans are tired of electing candidates who break their promises and vote for what the lobbyists want. They are tired of gargantuan bills that pass Congress BEFORE being read. They are just tired…. and the Washington Establishment is literally running scared.

We have seven weeks to our Maryland Primary and eight months until the November Election to continue waking up our electorate and getting the vote out. Our message is loud and clear; smaller government, less taxes and an end to massive regulations written and approved by unelected government workers to name a few. The tide is in our favor.

To all of you who have diligently worked and helped our Worcester County Tea Party over the years, it hasn’t been in vain! For those who have been watching from the sidelines, JOIN US NOW at our monthly meetings; help us contact elected officials on various bills; help us rally and get our message out. Our time is now. If we lose this election, this chance may never come again in our lifetimes.

Thursday, March 24th is our next meeting at 7 pm at the Ocean Pines Library. Come meet a Maryland Senate candidate and then hear the most powerful message to come out of CPAC. I am so looking forward to seeing you there!
