No mass shooting incident today, but moments ago BNO news reported that the stuiod of Fox 45, also known as FOX Baltimore, has been evacuated after a man dressed in a hedgehog suit entered the building and claimed to have a bomb strapped to his chest.
The simple answer is — and the courts have ruled — that they can and it’s legal. They claim that it is part of free speech and that the responsibility is on the public to be informed as to whether the information is true or not. Therein lies the problem. The American public has been lulled into watching the evening news and thinking they are being informed. They aren’t. They’re being manipulated.
A new fox poll was released yesterday, and it shows Donald Trump jumping out to a commanding 18 point lead over Ted Cruz in the Republican race for the nomination. As Fox News notes, Trump's best numbers are coming from voters without a college degree (54%), and who describe themselves as "very conservative (50%).
As Hillary and Bernie launch this evening's "critical", according to CNN, debate in Brooklyn, the tide has shifted somewhat for both candidates and especially for Hillary the news is not good. According to newly released favorability ratings from Gallup, Hillary's image is at an all time low. And in even worse news for Hillary, the latest Fox News poll shows Clinton's national lead imploding and after having a comfortable +13 digit lead in March, she is effectively tied with the socialist, as her lead in April has plunged to just 2 points, a 48%-46% split which falls within the margin of error.
Both Cruz and Sanders win Wisconsin, in line with what the polls had predicted.
As of this moment, Donald Trump has 736 delegates and is (mostly) smoothly sailing to the nomination with Ted Cruz almost 273 behind him at 463. However, there is suddenly an all too real chance that 273 difference can melt to as little as 173 with Trump's delegate count dropping by 50 as a result of what happened during this week's CNN townhall meeting when as previously reported, Trump reneged on his pledge to support the GOP candidate. The reason is that by doing so, he may have jeopardized his hold on South Carolina’s 50 delegates.
According to a number of recent polls, Donald Trump has a problem with women. Specifically, they don't seem to like him very much. But is the renewed focus on Trump's misogynistic rhetoric merely an attempt by his political rivals to capitalize on the billionaire's highly public wife spat with Ted Cruz, or will comments he made in the past represent a stumbling block in the national election?
As this reality-check data shows, we never really had any sort of meaningful “economic recovery”, and now we have entered the early phases of the next major downturn. So where do we go from here? Unfortunately, our debt-fueled prosperity has provided us with a massively inflated standard of living that is not even close to sustainable. As this bubble bursts, the economic pain is going to be absolutely unprecedented.
"Waterboarding would be fine and if they could expand the laws, I would do a lot more than waterboarding, You have to get the information and you have to get it rapidly." -- Trump"
"Our country's most experienced and bravest military leaders will tell you that torture is not effective." -- Clinton
Bottom line – the economy is due for a recession and the indicators suggest that one may already be in the works. But if you listen to SF Fed's Williams (for example), the narrative goes something like this: "Everything's awesome. Stop asking questions." What if The Fed is wrong (again) - Today, interest rates are at 0.25%... next to nothing. That means that even if the next (i.e. current) recession is extremely mild, interest rates are practically guaranteed to go below zero... And from there, it’s a very short road to capital controls.
After a weekend full of chaos for Trump rallies in Ohio, where violence broke out during several rallies and Trump was even rushed by an protester, moments ago the GOP presidential frontrunner started his daily rally in Hickory, North Carolina with Chris Christie by his side ahead of the all important primaries in Ohio and Florida.
What we see at Sea Island is that, despite all their babble about bringing the blessings of “democracy” to the world’s benighted, AEI, Neocon Central, believes less in democracy than in perpetual control of the American nation by the ruling Beltway elites. If an outsider like Trump imperils that control, democracy be damned. The elites will come together to bring him down, because, behind party ties, they are soul brothers in the pursuit of power.
"Bryan Pagliano is a devastating witness and, as the webmaster, knows exactly who had access to [Clinton's] computer and devices at specific times. His importance to this case cannot be over-emphasized..." according to an intelligence source.
If there was still any doubt whether the Trump juggernaut can be stopped before, if not so much after the Michigan primary earlier this week, it can be laid to rest now because shortly after Trump received the endorsement of Chris Christie, the real estate mogul has now secured his second highest profile backing, that of Ben Carson who according to the Washington Post will endorse Trump officially on Friday morning.
But no matter what happens on the Republican side from this point forward, it is going to take a miracle of epic proportions to keep Hillary Clinton from winning the presidency. Every plausible scenario ends with her in the White House, and that is a truly horrible thing to imagine.
