Comments made by Bernie Sanders this week may just have blindsided and disillusioned swathes of his support base. Some of those with higher expectations of the ‘peacenik’ candidate breathed a collective sigh of disappointment after he endorsed Obama’s extrajudicial drone assassination program.
Unless you’ve been living in a cave, you’ll know that New Yorkers go to the primary voting booths on April 19th. Unfortunately, only a small sliver of the population will actually be able to vote.
"We The People" don’t choose our presidents; they are hand-picked by a powerful group of political party insiders - parties that have long since sold out to the highest bidders. What we have on our hands in America is a rigged oligarchy, and that’s not a conspiracy theory - it’s fact. Now, however, millions of Americans are becoming aware of it thanks to the populist campaigns of Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump. America’s elections are controlled by a big club, but unfortunately, "you ain’t in it!"
Who will lead the Democratic Party in the general election is a political question, not a mathematical one. If Sanders’s momentum continues to grow, the superdelegates would ignore that fact at their peril.
"Paris, San Bernardino, and now Brussels?! We need to stop letting dangerous people in."

Just days after the manhunt for Salah Abdeslam ended with the Paris fugitive’s capture in the Muslim enclave of Molenbeek, another frantic search is underway in Belgium.

It’s actually pretty easy. At an apt moment very soon, Trump should offer Governor Kasich the VP slot and Senator Cruz the vacant Supreme Court seat. Such a grand bargain would not only clear the primary field and quash any backroom hijacking of the nomination by the Washington GOP establishment; it would also permit each man to play his highest and best role at this great inflection point in the nation’s history.
“We’re at a turning point. It’s a fork in the road — a political fork.”
“I’m soul-searching right now."
"Is this who we want" asked Trump yesterday in his first attack ad showcasing a barking Hillary; "It this who we want" asks Hillary in an ad mocking trump less than 24 hours later.
Despite the stern protests of such legal luminaries as Cruz and Rubio, Clinton and Sanders, Romney and MSNBC, that "clearly" trump was guilty of inciting violence at his rallies, moments ago BuzzFeed reported that Sheriff’s officials in North Carolina said that Donald Trump will not face charges for possibly inciting riot-like conditions at a rally where one of his supporters punched a protester.
