President Obama left the Pukes speechless

Obama ask the republicans one simple question in a sit down at the White House...

Even though nothing ended up being accomplished by having the face to face chat in Obama’s office, the president tried his best to get Republicans to “do their job” of helping him pick Justice Scalia’s replacement when he asked the GOP’s top brass if they had any recommendations. By asking them this one simple question: “Who do you have in mind?” the Republicans went speechless. They didn’t have any. They couldn’t produce one single name. And – it’s sad.

The truth is, they don’t want to produce a name. Their entire focus up to this point has been to obstruct, dodge, obstruct, and then do some more dodging. Mcconnell has already driven the point home publicly that he won’t even consider a nominee in Obama’s final year in office. A face to face meeting surely wasn’t going to change that, even if the president bended over backwards for them – which he did.

This is leaving President Obama with very little options since he’s getting no help from Republicans. He was even forced to highlight the relevant part of the U.S. constitution on Tuesday and show it to Republicans, reminding them that it’s their job to help.

How hard is that? Just do your damn job. If the president is willing to let you have a say in who he will nominate, take advantage of it. Show your base that you’re at least fighting to get who you want on the court. Don’t tell America you’re not reasonable, which is really the only point they’re driving home.

Secretive group of Hollywood conservatives suddenly dissolves

The announcement by the Friends of Abe fueled speculation that infighting over Donald Trump’s candidacy had drained commitment

The Friends of Abe has acted as a clandestine club for Hollywood conservatives for more than a decade, hosting secret events where they could vent rightwing views and hear speeches from visiting Tea Party luminaries.

But on Thursday the organisation – which counts Jon Voight, Jerry Bruckheimer and Kelsey Grammer among its 1,500 members – made an abrupt announcement: it was dissolving.

“Effective immediately, we are going to begin to wind down the 501 c3 organization, bring the Sustaining Membership dues to an end, and do away with the costly infrastructure and the abespal.com website,” the executive director, Jeremy Boreing, told members in an email, a copy of which the Guardian has seen.

A massive financial scandal is unfolding in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom

Two developers who brought foreign investment to an impoverished part of Vermont are now accused of misusing hundreds of millions of dollars. The money came from more than 700 foreign investors hoping to get a special visa through the federal EB-5 program.

Now everything's come to a crashing halt. Locals are angry and Vermont state officials who backed the project are feeling betrayed.

To appreciate how a dramatic a turn things have taken, go back in time to 2008. The Great Recession had descended across northern Vermont. Back then, two American businessmen behind the project, Bill Stenger and Ariel Quiros made big promises to bring a huge infusion of investment, paid for by foreign investors.

“The vision was originally for about $800 million worth of projects that would have completely changed a very small town up on the Canadian border,” says Anne Galloway, a reporter for Vermont Digger, an online news site about state politics in Vermont. “It was designed to re-develop two ski resorts in the Northeast Kingdom, which is this region of northern Vermont. They also wanted to build a biotech center and the idea was to create thousands of jobs, as many as 11,000 altogether, and they were going to infuse cash in the region through investments from foreigners who want green cards.”

Thanks for nothing Bernie Sanders - Trump now using his campaign slogan

Trump on Clinton: 'Now I'm going to say she's not qualified'

Donald Trump on Thursday picked up a recent spat between the Democratic candidates and said he thinks Hillary Clinton is not qualified for the presidency.

At a rally in Harrisburg, Pa., Trump said he would like Bernie Sanders to continue his battle with Clinton over the Democratic presidential nomination.

“He’s been tough on her,” he said. "In fact, I’d like him to keep going. The longer he goes the more I’m going to like it.”

Trump then rehashed a recent clash between the two Democrats over qualifications, first saying that he thinks Clinton is qualified for the job and then switching posiitons. "[Sanders] said she suffers from bad judgement and she said – now I don’t know, I think she’s qualified, I guess. But that doesn’t mean she’s good," Trump said. "He said she’s not qualified to be president. Now what he meant is because her judgement is so bad– so Bernie Sanders, not me, said she’s not qualified. So now I’m going to say: She’s not qualified, OK?"

“We have all of the mistakes Hillary made as secretary of State," Trump continued. "We have a mess. The war in Iraq has been devastating. We have probably spent $4 trillion in the Middle East.”

But Trump said he would prefer facing Clinton in a general election because of her past political subterfuge.


Trump is going to pick up where BS left off with the BS.

Trump: 9/11 Way Worse Than Pearl Harbor Cuz ‘Great People’ Were Killed, Not Just Soldiers

Trump: 9/11 Way Worse Than Pearl Harbor Cuz ‘Great People’ Were Killed, Not Just Soldier

On Monday, Donald Trump made a quick stop in Buffalo to get one last dig in at veterans before the New York primary. In a speech meant to pander to what he referred to as “New York values,” Trump declared that 9/11 was the worst attack in our nations history (and he remembered not to call it 7/11 this time).

Still, it wouldn’t be a Donald Trump speech without him finding the most callous and horrible way to say something. So he was quick to clarify that 9/11 was worse than Pearl Harbor because civilians died, not just military.

“This was the worst hit that our country has ever taken, worse than Pearl Harbor, because when they attacked Pearl Harbor at least it was military. This was civilians. These were great people. Everybody in this room practically knew somebody that died or somebody that was horribly injured during that terrible day.”

Democratic Primary is the process of the Democratic Party selecting its candidates

It is the process of the party, not the state, selecting its candidates for the General Election.

The party could just hold a convention without giving the larger population of "The Democratic Party" a vote.

If you want to vote in the Democratic Party Primary, you should have joined the party by registering as a Democrat by the deadline, and according to the RULES which were set out long before this contest date was set.

If BS can't win, cheat!

Unbelievable how the BS campaign is trying to corrupt this election process because so many of them were too busy on-line to register properly.
