Liberal Idiot Whoopi Goldberg Tries to Humiliate Trump… BAD Idea!

In an effort to save their ratings that have been in a nosedive, the hosts of “The View” decided they would call Donald Trump and ask him a few questions…what they didn’t expect, was that he would have the answers… silly them.

After asking Trump what his Iran deal would have looked like, Whoopi quickly turns the topic of discussion to immigration pointing out that Trump’s own wife is an immigrant of Eastern Europe.

“Your stance on immigration is a little testy for folks,” Goldberg told Trump. “Not all Mexican immigrants are murderers and rapists, I just want to straighten that up.”

But then Behar went too far when she asked Trump if he is a “Democrat at heart.”

“I used to be a Democrat,” Trump admitted, saying that he switched parties just like Ronald Reagan did. “And now I’m a Republican, a conservative Republican, but with a very big heart.”

No matter how hard Whoopi and Behar tried, they couldn’t knock Trump down. Instead, he won over the liberal audience by saying how much he respects women.

RECALL ALERT: This Popular Dog Food Is Getting Pulled For Lack Of Nutrition

For those dog lovers among us, this will likely be irritating news. It seems that lots of Purina’s wet dog food brands are coming off the shelves for scoring badly on nutritional value

Nestlé-Purina has issued a voluntary recall of many of their wet dog food tubs. The company discovered that the items do not contain the recommended amount of vitamins and minerals. The recall affects Beneful Prepared Meals, Beneful Chopped Blends, and Pro Plan Savory Meals.

In a press release, the company states:

Although most of the recalled product contains all of the vitamins and minerals your dog needs, we recommend that you discard any of the affected product you may have, and we’ll issue you a refund.

They also state that the lack of proper vitamins and minerals could pose an issue for dogs who eat these products as their only meal source for more than several weeks. If this is the case for your pup, you may want to consult your veterinarian.

History, Politics and Pride: Why Small Cities, Counties Rarely Merge

Three times in 40 years — in the 1950s, in the ’70s and in the ’90s — the Township and the Borough of Princeton, New Jersey, tried unsuccessfully to merge. The two finally combined into the new Municipality of Princeton a few years ago, allowing them to cut out redundant services and save millions on policing, snow removal and trash pickup.

Across the country, advocates of consolidation, including governors like New Jersey’s Chris Christie and Illinois’ Bruce Rauner, both Republicans, tout the municipal combinations as a way to streamline services and save taxpayers money.

An Illinois report released in December sparked a conversation in that state and in others. It found that living in an area with too many layers of government increases property taxes on residents (the report didn’t break out business taxes) and makes it all but impossible to remember which governmental entity governs what.

But the Municipality of Princeton, formed in 2013, is an exception. Consolidations have often been discussed and studied, but the mergers rarely take place.

More Time for Dads? States Weigh Changes to Custody Laws

It’s been about 40 years since the majority of moms stayed home, and married dads in the 21st century spend twice as much time caring for their children as they did back then.

Yet when parents divorce or separate, custody arrangements are more likely to reflect life as it was in 1975, with the mother as the primary caretaker and the father working to help support a child he seldom sees.

As fathers become more vocal about what they see as inequities in custody cases — and as more research shows how important it is for fathers to be present in their children’s lives — states are considering changing their custody laws.

Five states — Colorado, Florida, Maryland, Massachusetts and Missouri — are looking at proposals that would require judges to presume that it’s best for children to split their time as evenly as possible between their two parents. Utah enacted a similar law last year.

Court Reminds Us All: You Have No Right To Sue Your Phone Company

If you don’t like your wireless company’s service, or your current rate plan, you’re free to change providers. But if you think your wireless provider is breaking the law, you can’t sue the company; and it doesn’t matter which of the four major carriers you have, because they all strip their customers’ of their legal rights.

AT&T wireless customers in California recently tried to sue the telecom giant in federal court over the company’s controversial former policy of throttling “unlimited” data customers’ data speeds after they reached an arbitrary monthly threshold. But recently, the judge in the case reminded the plaintiffs that they had all signed away their right to sue AT&T when they became customers.

Not only does AT&T have a mandatory arbitration clause in itsterms and conditions — requiring that all customers resolve disputes either in small claims court or through the byzantine process of binding arbitration — but in 2011 AT&T convinced the U.S. Supreme Court that it was legal to force customers into such an agreement by inserting a few paragraphs into a 20,000-word contract that the customer has no authority or ability to negotiate.

Cancer And Arthritis Drugs Drive Up Spending On Medicines

Spending on prescription drugs in the U.S. rose 5.2 percent in 2015, driven mostly by increased costs of expensive specialty medications to treat conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, according to data from the largest manager of employers' drug benefits.

Spending on specialty medications rose 18 percent, while spending on standard prescription drugs rose less than one percent, according to a new report by Express Scripts. The report is based on the prescription drug spending for the company's 80 million covered patients.

The measure — called "drug trend" in pharmaceutical industry parlance — includes increases in the use of medications and price hikes.

A $22M Haul for Jerry Seinfeld's Car Collection

Jerry Seinfeld unloaded a collection of 17 cars at an auction over the weekend. The total haul: $22.2 million.

Seinfeld, an avid car collector and Porsche fan, sent 18 of his cars to Gooding & Co.’s auction on Amelia Island, Fla. He sold all but one, a 2000 Porsche Carrera GT prototype that will remain in his collection for now.

The largest price tag went to a 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder, which was purchased for $5.3 million. It was one of the most expensive cars sold during the entire auction, second only to a 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California SWB Spider that drew a winning bid of $17.1 million.

Fight For Freedom Or Humbly Accept Submission

Submission to the state is a time-honoured tradition, a concept supported by governing bodies since time immemorial.
In days of yore, men submitted to whichever member of the tribe was the mightiest in battle. By doing so, they stood a better chance of succeeding in battle, thereby diminishing the likelihood of their own death or enslavement.

Later on, as tribes became more tied to the land and communities sprang up, the idea of a strong leader still made sense. Not only might he do the best job of leading the protection of the town or village, he might also travel outside the community to attack other communities, bringing back spoils for all to benefit from. (Not too civilised, maybe, but still, the reasoning behind submission to the leader made sense.)

Later, settlements grew larger and, increasingly, many villages and towns would find themselves joined together collectively, under a national banner, with a single army to protect them. And, again, the leader would most likely be a fierce and formidable warrior. But a significant change was taking place. Whilst the warrior leader was away (sometimes for years), invading other communities, it was necessary to have leadership at home – administrative leadership. Predictably, this leadership also sought the loyalty and submission of the people.

CNN GIVES AIRTIME TO GUY WHO ADMITTED HE WANTED TO MURDER TRUMP

CNN interviewed the guy who attempted to jump Donald Trump in Dayton, Ohio last week – giving him a platform to throw insults at the GOP frontrunner, despite the fact that he admitted he wanted to kill Trump.

Thomas Dimassimo, the guy who jumped the security fence and got close to Trump before being apprehended, had declared on Twitter that he wanted to “be a martyr” and posted an emoji of gun.

Scientists may have just made a huge breakthrough in explaining the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle

Scientists may have solved an enduring mystery that has plagued us since records began in 1851.

Scientists believe methane gas explosions may be linked to the mystery of the disappearance of around 8,127 people in the Bermuda Triangle.

The mythical, triangular stretch of ocean, roughly encompassing Puerto Rico, the island of Bermuda, and Miami has been called the Devil's Triangle and more commonly called the Bermuda Triangle.

For the past 165 years, according to the International Business Times, numerous ships and airplanes have disappeared in the area, usually under mysterious circumstances, taking the lives of over 8,000 souls. But new research from scientists at Arctic University in Norway suggests that multiple giant craters on the floor of the Barents Sea may help to explain what's going on in the Bermuda Triangle.

The craters surrounding the seabed on the coast of Norway mark area's where massive explosions of methane gas may have exploded. The study of these craters, some of them are actually chasms 150-feet deep and half-a-mile wide, could have been caused by gas leaking from oil and gas deposits buried deep in the sea floor.

A Republican strategy from September to stop Trump is backfiring in a major way

The pledge that Republican candidates signed early in the presidential primary season, promising to support the eventual nominee if they lose, looks increasingly likes a suicide pact.

The three remaining candidates for the Republican presidential nomination who are not named Donald Trump have inched up to the line suggesting that the mercurial billionaire is so wildly unsuited to be president that they would not support him in a general election.

But so far, none has been willing to step over. Instead, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Ohio Gov. John Kasich have all condemned Trump’s inflammatory rhetoric and the violence on display at his rallies. They’ve called on Trump to dial back his language and said that his call for supporters to pledge allegiance to him with a gesture reminiscent of the Nazi salute is “troubling.”

But over the weekend, even as stories of violence between protesters and Trump supporters were everywhere, even as Trump said he was considering paying the legal costs of a supporter who assaulted a protester, all three stuck to their pledge — reiterated in the most recent GOP debate last week — that they would reluctantly support the billionaire against whomever the Democrats nominate.

Cruz, speaking to reporters on Monday, reiterated that he would support Trump in the general election, though he qualified it by saying, “I can give you one example where I would no longer support Donald Trump. If for example, he were to go out on 5th Avenue and shoot somebody, I would not be willing to support Donald Trump.”

Politico Asks: ‘What’s Wrong with Hillary?’

The establishment news organization Politico ran a frontpage article Monday headlined “What’s Wrong With Hillary?”

The hand-wringing article underscores the reality that Democrats are worried about their frontrunner, amid dropping voter turnout in the Democratic primaries, an FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email use, and the continuing threat of socialist challenger Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Jeff Greenfield writes:

But there are other factors that make Hillary Clinton look more vulnerable than venerable, and that should give her party cause to pause. Consider the much-chewed-over finding that nearly six in 10 Americans do not consider Clinton honest and trustworthy. In last Wednesday’s debate, panelist Karen Tumulty cut through Clinton’s first explanation — it’s all that right-wing Fox News noise — to note that these doubts were held by the broader public, and by many in her own party…

A look at Clinton’s political career provides a tougher explanation. Those younger voters who doubt her trustworthiness likely have no memory, or even casual acquaintance with, a 25-year history that includes cattle-futures trading, law firm billing records, muddled sniper fire recollections and the countless other charges of widely varying credibility aimed at her. They may even have suspended judgment about whether her e-mail use was a matter of bad judgment or worse.

But when you look at the positions she has taken on some of the most significant public policy questions of her time, you cannot escape noticing one key pattern: She has always embraced the politically popular stand — indeed, she has gone out of her way to reinforce that stand — and she has shifted her ground in a way that perfectly correlates with the shifts in public opinion.

Greenfield is right to have doubts.

Obama Calls on Tech Industry to Allow Backdoor Access to Smartphones at SXSW

Echoing recent FBI sentiments, President Barack Obama is strongly urging Apple to open up backdoor access to their smartphones so that the government can reveal potentially critical information about criminal activity.

The president, speaking at the SXSW conference in Austin, Texas, urged the tech industry to work with the government so that smartphones don’t become “black boxes” with information stored on them that is inaccessible to government, even when a warrant has been issued.

“You cannot take an absolutist view on this. If your argument is strong encryption no matter what, and we can and should create black boxes, that I think does not strike the kind of balance we have lived with for 200, 300 years, and it’s fetishizing our phones above every other value,” he argued.

Chicago Cop: Anti-Trump Mob More Aggressive and Destructive than Reported

The protests launched by militant leftists who shut down Donald Trump’s Chicago rally were far more aggressive and destructive than reported, says a Chicago Police officer.

“It seems the [media] aren’t broadcasting footage of the debris being thrown across Harrison by Sanders/Hillary supporters at Trump fans,” the officer wrote shortly after the canceled Trump event.

The officer, who posed anonymously on the Second City Cop blog, also noted the media didn’t report that protesters were running through parking lots and breaking windows of cars with Trump stickers on them, or that the department called out emergency Incident Teams to cope with the anti-Trump riot at the University of Illinois in Chicago.

Later that same day the officer posted a second, much longer post, to detail the failures of the police leaders to plan for and respond to the protests.

The officer insisted there was “pretty much zero in terms of a unified Command Post” for the event, and that officers had no central command to report to or coordinate response from.

Chicagoland (Political) Thuggery Masks Far Left’s Fear

WHAT THE PROTESTS AGAINST DONALD TRUMP ARE REALLY ABOUT

There are two competing narratives coming from the debacle that was GOP frontrunner Donald Trump‘s visit to Chicago on Friday evening – in which liberal activists stormed an arena where Trump was scheduled to speech and clashed (at times violently) with his supporters and with police.

The ensuing chaos prompted Trump to cancel his event.

The first narrative? That Trump had this coming … that he has been egging on protesters for months and finally got what he deserved. This view is being advanced (shocker) by the liberal Washington Post, which gleefully rejoiced in Trump’s rude reception in the windy city.

“For months, Trump has been able to control – and often use to his advantage – the hundreds of protesters who show up to his rallies to oppose rhetoric they consider divisive, racist and hateful,” reporter Jenna Johnson noted. “In the past two weeks, these interruptions have increasingly eaten away at Trump’s speaking time and have often become violent, with police in North Carolina charging a Trump supporter who punched a protester at a rally on Wednesday.”

The second narrative being advanced is that the liberal activist horde – which included avowed communist and former domestic terrorist Bill Ayers – denied Trump his First Amendment rights.

“Liberals love the first amendment until you say something they don’t agree with,” Trump’s son tweeted in the aftermath of the melee.

KKK Leader Gets Behind This Democratic Candidate

Will Quigg, a grand dragon of the Klan’s California chapter and responsible for recruitment in the western United States, is less keen to give Mr Trump the dubious benefit of his support.

“We want Hillary Clinton to win,” Mr Quigg told The Telegraph. “She is telling everybody one thing, but she has a hidden agenda. She’s telling everybody what they want to hear so she can get elected, because she’s Bill Clinton’s wife, she’s close to the Bushes. [But] once she’s in the presidency, she’s going to come out and her true colours are going to show.

Liberal Leaders Call For 'Massive' Anti-Trump Campaign

'This is a five-alarm fire for our democracy,' reads the letter signed by top officials of groups like MoveOn.org and the Services Employees International Union.

CHICAGO —
Leaders of more than 20 leading liberal groups supporting both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are set to release a scathing letter on Tuesday that serves as a progressive call to arms against Donald Trump, imploring Americans to undertake a unified set of concrete steps to oppose the Republican front-runner — from protesting to organizing large-scale voter turnout efforts.

“This is a five-alarm fire for our democracy. A hate-peddling bigot who openly incites violence is the likely presidential nominee of one of our nation’s two major parties. It is alarming and dangerous. Donald Trump’s candidacy is a threat to the America we love, and we must respond to him and what he is stoking as such,” reads the letter, which was obtained first by POLITICO. It is signed by top officials of Sanders-backing groups like MoveOn.org and Clinton-backing organizations including the Services Employees International Union.

“Today we are calling for a massive nonviolent mobilization of working people, students, immigrants, children of immigrants, great-great-grandchildren of immigrants, people of color and white people, the unemployed and under-employed, people of faith, retirees, veterans, women, and men — anyone who opposes bigotry and hate and loves freedom and justice — to stand up to Trump’s bullying and bigotry,” the note continues.

Anticipating the possibility that the billionaire real estate developer essentially locks up the Republican nomination on Tuesday — and that he subsequently pivots to a more widely-acceptable message — the letter lists multiple examples of Trump encouraging violence at his rallies. To fight back, the group proposes a three-pronged response ahead of November’s general election, regardless of the Democratic nominee.

Kurdish Rebels Capture American Traitor

A Muslim American born in Alexandria Virginia betrayed his country, siding with filthy terrrorist savages instead. Now he's in the hands of Kurdish Peshmerga forces. As Townhall reports:

According to the Kurdish media service Rudaw, a man from Alexandria, Virginia has been captured by Peshmerga military forces in Iraqi Kurdistan after mistaking the territory for Turkey.

Muhammad Jamal Amin is a Virginia-born American citizen from a Palestinian father and Iraqi mother from Mosul.

The Peshmerga commander said that Amin had entered Syria from Turkey two months ago from where he had traveled to Mosul.

What should happen to him next? Let us know in the comments.

Narco Marco: I Think I Know What Went Wrong With Marco Rubio’s Campaign

If you hear a plaintive wailing emanating from Florida today, it isn’t the senator I’m calling “Narco Marco” trying and failing to reach his rumoured prescription meds off a high shelf with hisEZ Grabber reaching aid.

It is instead the gibbering GOP establishment watching the campaign of their handpicked golden boy collapsing faster than a handful of grandmas fleeing a Jeb Bush event (That would actually be quite slow, but you get the idea.) Yeah, in case you hadn’t heard: Little Marco is out.

Rubio took a drubbing last week in important states like Michigan. No doubt he spent the weekend consoling himself with Pet Shop Boys albums and a strongly mixed chocolatini, readying for the big fight in his home state of Florida. Marco is obviously in the closet about his inability to gain traction anywhere besides Minnesota.

No one’s surprised Rubio got schlonged in Florida today — least of all regular dog-walkers at Miami’s Alice C. Wainwright Park.

Bernie Sanders’s Socialist Allies Helped Shut Down Donald Trump’s Chicago Event

One of the radical groups that helped to shut down Donald Trump’s Chicago rally has long maintained a close relationship with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

In fact, Sanders raised funds for the group, the Democratic Socialists of America, or DSA, and himself helped to recruit new members to the socialist organization.

Sanders further was a key player in helping to elect DSA-supported candidates to Congress and was involved in an effort to rebrand and incorporate that socialist-oriented legislative axis within the Congressional Progressive Caucus, or CPC.

The DSA in turn was critical in organizing early support for Sanders’ national political career and Sanders has since maintained close working ties to the organization.

Sanders was one of six founding members of the CPC. It was also founded in 1991 by Reps. Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-OR), D-Ore., Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), D-Calif., and Ron Dellums, D-Calif.

The story of Sanders, the CPC and the DSA spotlights the largely forgotten but entirely public role the DSA played in founding the CPC, the largest membership organization within the House Democratic Caucus, currently boasting seventy-five members.

Besides the DSA, the George Soros-backed, pro-Sanders MoveOn.org played a prominent role in organizing the anti-Trump activism.

Kasich Vows to Take Fight to Convention After Winning Ohio

Standing in a high school gymnasium in his suburban Columbus hometown hours before the polls opened on Monday, Governor John Kasich asked his fellow Ohioans to vote for him “so I can continue to run for president of the United States.” They did.

Kasich defeated Republican front-runner Donald Trump in Ohio on Tuesday, hurting the billionaire’s ability to win enough delegates for the party’s nomination and allowing the governor to stay in a race that he now thinks will be reset in his favor.

“We are going go all the way to Cleveland and secure the Republican nomination,” Kasich said during a victory event on Tuesday night in Berea in suburban Cleveland, where the Republican Party will meet in about four months to select its nominee.

The Silent Majority Is Mad As Hell

Violence broke out over the weekend at several Donald Trump campaign rallies. Left-wing thugs battled with police in Chicago and St. Louis.

One unhinged lunatic tried to storm the stage at a rally in Dayton, Ohio. He was stopped by Secret Service agents. Heaven only knows what he would’ve done had he gotten hold of Mr. Trump.

To be clear – what happened over the weekend was not just an attack on Mr. Trump. It was an attack on the First Amendment.

But instead of condemning the professional hooligans -- the political chattering class condemned Mr. Trump.

A despondent Senator Marco Rubio went so far as to liken Mr. Trump to a third world strong man.

He’s come under fierce attack for suggesting that his supporters physically manhandle protesters. In February he told an audience that he wanted to punch one of the protesters in the face.

That sort of language has no place in any political campaign.

But that’s not what brought about the weekend violence.

The person responsible for fomenting political unrest and creating this toxic environment is not Donald Trump -- it's President Obama.

For the past seven and a half years this man has been stoking division and discord.

Chinese Make STUNNING Statement That Proves Trump Was Right All Along

Aside from talk of a border wall and immigration, a key component of billionaire businessman Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has been a frank discussion of the U.S. trade imbalance with China.

Trump has repeatedly exposed Chines currency manipulation, which can at times play havoc with our own economy, and has decried the American tax policies that seemingly chase jobs out of the United States and into China and other foreign markets.

He has also spoken at length about bringing those jobs back to America and fueling a resurgence of U.S. manufacturing to bolster the economy and level the global market playing field, a highly popular notion with not just Americans, but the Chinese as well, according to Forbes.

WHAT AMERICANS SHOULD BE WORRIED ABOUT

HINT: IT’S NOT GOP FRONTRUNNER DONALD TRUMP OR A BUNCH OF RADICAL PROGRESSIVE PROTESTERS

After what happened in Chicago between supporters of GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump and a rabble of far left agitators, Americans of varying ideological stripes are expressing profound disenchantment with their nation’s political process.

That’s a good thing … they should be upset. But do they know why they should be upset? In predictable politically-correct fashion, we’ve heard a lot of hand-wringing from the liberal mainstream media about Trump’s “angry words” and “divisive rhetoric” – or from the conservative media about the protesters “assault on the First Amendment.”

Look: We don’t disagree that the 2016 election has “jumped the shark.” It clearly has. But Trump saying “mean things” and a few hundred losers infiltrating one of his rallies and showing their asses – that’s not what we should be worried about in America right now.

Here is what we should be worried about in America right now …

New Poll: Gov. Hogan’s Highest Approval Rating Comes From Democrats Under 35

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ) – Maryland Governor Larry Hogan is getting support from some unexpected places.

The new Baltimore Sun-University of Baltimore poll finds that his highest approval among democrats comes from young people and African Americans.

Political reporter Pat Warren has reaction from the governor.

At a non-partisan Maryland pro-business group luncheon Governor Hogan greets folks who would seem likely to support him, democrats as well as republicans.

Surprise, young people and African American democrats do too.

“Well it’s really exciting that we’re reaching out to various constituencies that people wouldn’t expect to be supportive,” said Hogan.

Independent Consultants Find It Easier To Balance Career And Family

Finding the right balance between career and home life continues to be a significant issue for parents of young children.

According to a recent Pew Research Center survey, more than half of American women believe that children are better off when a parent stays home to concentrate on family. But at the same time, 51 percent of women with children younger than 18 have told Pew that being a working parent made it harder to advance in their job or career.

While women may be concerned that temporarily becoming a stay-at-home mother hampers their career aspirations, many professionals are discovering a new way to achieve both professional and personal goals: independent consulting.

“It’s possible to keep a foot in both camps and be very successful,” says Aaron Zwas, an independent consultant and author of “Transition to Independence” (www.t2iplan.com).

Is This GOP State Senator Feeling the Bern?

An Arizona State Senator is pursuing a strange, populist course of action that puts her in camp with Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren- the sort of interest rate voodoo that helped create the financial crisis:

Arizona State Senator Kimberly Yee is not making any new friends among the free-market Republican crowd in Arizona. In a recent Senate hearing, Yee, who has been touted as a rising star in the party, held her fire after a long debate until the voting opened on a financial services bill in her committee. She then unloaded with full ammunition on the financial services industry and their free market principles.

"This bill just doesn't feel right," Yee proclaimed. "I am standing with the poor," while attacking the well-funded groups who were supportive and their consultant class.

Politico reports that Boehner, speaking at a conference in Boca Raton, Florida, said: “If we don’t have a nominee who can win on the first ballot, I’m for none of the above. They all had a chance to win. None of them won. So I’m for none of the above. I’m for Paul Ryan to be our nominee.”

Backyard Buffers Program

University of Maryland Extension is partnering with Maryland DNR Forest Service and the Wicomico and Dorchester County Forestry Boards to offer free trees in celebration of Earth Day. Free trees will be given to all in attendance, but special tree packets will be given to landowners wishing to plant trees near water. The Backyard Buffers Program is designed to assist homeowners (with less than 5 acres of land) who have a stream or other waterway on or adjacent to their property in order to create a streamside buffer of native trees and shrubs.

The Backyard Buffers Program provides a free “buffer in a bag” to help get homeowners started in buffering their streamside. The buffer in a bag includes 25 native hardwood tree and shrub bare-root seedlings, approximately 1 to 2 feet in height, of various species that are well suited to streamside conditions.

Wicomico County Residents Pick up Location:
Date: Saturday, April 16, 2016
Time: 10:00am to 12:00pm
Location: University of Maryland Extension Office, 28647 Old Quantico Road, Salisbury, MD

"The difference between [socialism and fascism] is superficial and purely formal, but it is significant psychologically: it brings the authoritarian nature of a planned economy crudely into the open. The main characteristic of socialism (and of communism) is public ownership of the means of production, and, therefore, the abolition of private property. The right to property is the right of use and disposal. Under fascism, men retain the semblance or pretense of private property, but the government holds total power over its use and disposal."

Sheriff: Attending Trump Rally Was 'Selfish'

CINCINNATI — Hamilton County Sheriff Jim Neil publicly apologized and distanced himself from Donald Trump Monday, a day after the Democratic sheriff attended a West Chester rally for the Republican presidential candidate.

During a Monday news conference outside the Hamilton County Justice Center, Neil apologized to Hamilton County residents and the local Democratic party, saying "it was selfish," and might have damaged local Democratic party election efforts by alienating supporters.

Neil repeatedly said Monday he attended the Trump rally to show appreciation for Trump's support of law enforcement. "I’m a public servant … public safety is my priority.”

From Hamilton County Democratic Party Chairman Tim Burke to a Cincinnati city councilman, local Democrats widely criticized Neil's appearance at the Sunday rally. Neil said Monday he understood the criticism.

From the very first picture of Neil front in center at Sunday's rally in West Chester, there was an outcry from party members, said Burke.

"I thought it sent entirely the wrong message," Burke said. "This was a terrible mistake. It hurt a lot of people who have been fans of Jim's. A great many people are confused by his decision."
