GOP urged to confirm Supreme Court nominee after Trump win

Greg Nash, The Hill

A top conservative blog is urging Senate Republicans to confirm President Obama’s Supreme Court pick after Donald Trump’s win in Indiana’s GOP presidential primary. “Now that Donald Trump is the presumptive nominee, this is not even a close call. There is absolutely no reason to drag this out any longer. [Merrick] Garland is not a great choice, but he is not a terrible one, either,” Leon H. Wolf, the managing editor of the conservative website RedState, wrote Wednesday. The comments come after Trump victory Tuesday night, forcing Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) out of the GOP race and securing a spot…

Bernie Sanders acknowledges ‘uphill’ struggle but believes win is possible

Bernie Sanders is not ready to discuss his campaign in the past tense. “I am not into legacy,” he told the Guardian on Sunday when asked to sum up his lasting achievements after a year of insurgency. “I hope my legacy will be that I was a very good president of the United States.” To critics, the defiance that marked the campaign’s first anniversary this weekend may smack of hubris bordering on the delusional. After Hillary Clinton stretched her delegate lead again last week with strong wins on the east coast, many Democrats are calling for reconciliation instead. Live Trump…

Workers fight for dignity in Trump’s Las Vegas hotel: ‘You don’t talk to the boss’

Maricella Olvera encounters Donald Trump on occasion, but she’s careful not to say a word. The 47-year-old cleans the penthouse at the Trump International Hotel Las Vegas, where Trump, his family, and celebrity guests often come to stay. She cleans around them in silence. Trump is always uninterested. “The policy is: you don’t talk to the boss,” she said at her small one-bedroom home, on the joyously named Sing Song Way in the city’s northern suburbs. While Olvera may be silent at work, she and a collective of cleaners, bar workers, and kitchen staff at the Trump hotel have been…

The Trump effect: Koch-linked groups abandon GOP primary for Senate races

TheGuardian

Billionaire Charles Koch said earlier this year he was unimpressed with the anti-Muslim rhetoric used by Donald Trump. Photograph: Paul Sancya/AP   Key conservative groups backed by the billionaire Koch brothers and their network of rich allies are plowing millions into Senate races after becoming frustrated by the overheated rhetoric and policies of leading Republican presidential candidates – especially frontrunner Donald Trump – and opting to stay out of the primaries. Three leading groups – Americans for Prosperity, Freedom Partners Chamber of Commerce, and Concerned Veterans for America – supported by the Koch donor network spent almost $4m on ads in just…

Cruz’s Bronx school visit canceled after student walkout threat

Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz‘s planned visit to a school in the Bronx was canceled after students threatened a walkout if the Texas senator came, the New York Daily News reported. Cruz was scheduled to speak at Bronx Lighthouse College Preparatory Academy, but students at the school wrote a letter to the principal asking that she not allow Cruz to come.   “We told her if he came here, we would schedule a walkout,” said Destiny Domeneck, 16. “Most of us are immigrants or come from immigrant backgrounds. Ted Cruz goes against everything our school stands for.” The letter explained that a…

Trump would seek to block money transfers to force Mexico to fund border wall

Donald Trump says he will force Mexico to pay for a border wall as president by threatening to cut off the flow of billions of dollars in payments that immigrants send home to the country, an idea that could decimate the Mexican economy and set up an unprecedented showdown between the United States and a key diplomatic ally. In a two-page memo to The Washington Post, Trump outlined for the first time how he would seek to force Mexico to pay for his 1,000-mile border fence, which Trump has made a cornerstone of his presidential campaign and which has been repeatedly scoffed…

The United States Needs to Focus on Its Own Hemisphere

The National Interest

The United States remains the leading power in the Western Hemisphere by a wide margin. Much of the speculation, so prevalent a few years ago, about the rise of new major powers in the world as diplomatic, economic and even strategic competitors to Washington has justifiably faded. That is especially true of the so-called BRICS nations—Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa—that were supposedly poised to become decisive economic and diplomatic actors. Speculation about Brazil’s new status and role especially proved to be both premature and excessive. That country, along with the other BRICS, encountered a variety of domestic limitations…

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has a massive lead over Bernie Sanders in South Carolina, according to a new poll. Clinton has 64 percent support in the Palmetto State, with Sanders at 14 percent, a Clemson University survey found Thursday. The state’s Democratic primary is Saturday. “After a razor-thin victory by Clinton in Iowa, a blowout by Sanders in the New Hampshire primary and a small margin by Clinton in the Nevada caucuses, Clinton is perched on the cusp of her own significant primary victory in the Palmetto State,” Bruce Ransom, a Clemson political science professor, said in a statement. Clinton has maintained huge leads in the…
