Glenn Beck: If Trump Wins The 1,237 Or Wins In The First, Second, or Third Ballot, Nomination Must Go To Him

Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd challenges The Blaze founder Glenn Beck on the possibility Ted Cruz or Donald Trump go into a contested convention and neither one is chosen as the Republican party’s presidential nominee. “If the G.O.P. doesn’t find its principles, this isn’t about a candidate coming up with some utopian future for us. This is really about finding our principles. And if they don’t find their principles, the G.O.P. is going to be over. And disenfranchising people who have worked hard and gone out and campaigned for some of these people, I think would be a really bad mistake,” Beck said. Beck said while he is a #NeverTrump guy, selecting a nominee who is not Cruz or Trump would “disenfranchise” the voter. Beck told Todd while Trump is … Read entire article »

Trump: "It's A Very Arcane System," But I Won Many More States, More Votes Than Cruz

DONALD TRUMP: It’s a very arcane system. I mean I thought when I started –I’ve never done this before– I’ve only been a politician for eight months, nine or ten months. But I was winning the states — and I guess I do win. I won 22 states against perhaps 9 or 10 or something like that. And I’ve been winning the vote; million over [Cruz]. Go to Louisiana, I’ll give you an example. Louisiana I won, in the vote, everybody says great, television is on, everyone is happy. And then through some underhanded, arcane, rules the one that lost gets more delegates than the one that won. Tell me, is that fair? Forgetting about the rules, is that fair? They have these things, like landmines, all over the place, it is … Read entire article »

Sanders Warns: Clintons "About To Become Very Negative… About To Beat Us Up"

Bernie Sanders responds to charges of sexism from Bill Clinton. BERNIE SANDERS: Well I appreciate Bill Clinton being my psychoanalyst. It’s always nice. But the reality is that ever since Wisconsin, when that became the sixth out of seven states that we have won in either caucuses or primaries, I think the Clinton campaign has made it public, basically, they told the media, that here in New York they’re about to become very negative, about to beat us up. I just want them to understand that we have tried to run an issue-oriented campaign. But that we are not going to be attacked every single day. Our record is not going to be distorted. … Read entire article »

Tucker Carlson: Trump Is "Better Positioned Within His Party" Than Hillary In Hers

Fox & Friends comments on brand new polls out Sunday morning showing Donald Trump with a commanding lead in New York’s Republican primary, with Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton closer neck-and-neck in the Democratic primary. TUCKER CARLSON: What is so interesting about these polls when you dig into it, Donald Trump is actually better positioned within his party than Hillary Clinton is within hers. Trump is winning every democgraphic category, age, gender, also educational attainment — while on the Democratic side, Hillary is winning… but she is losing men and voters under 45 by a lot… It is certainly my fault too, but we pay all this attention to the Republican side –this fracture– that’s real, but the Democratic side, I think we have underplayed it. I have anyway. … Read entire article »

National Review's Ponnuru on GOP Delegate Battle: "Only Cruz's People Showing Up To Interview In A Suit And Tie"

National Review columnist Ramesh Ponnuru comments on the Trump campaign’s efforts to secure 1,237 delegates at the Republican National Convention. RAMESH PONNURU: I don’t think majority rule is all that difficult or arcane for people to understand… He’s got to do three things. Get as many bound delegates as he can through the voting, second, actually compete in this delegate selection process, where so far Sen. Cruz’s people have been the only ones actually showing up to the interview in a suit and a tie. And third he’s got to actually organize an effort to sway supporters of the other campaigns on a second ballot, which we’ve heard nothing about from the Trump campaign. … Read entire article »

Trump Delegate Manager Paul Manafort: Cruz Using "Gestapo Tactics" To Obtain Delegates

Paul Manafort charged the Ted Cruz campaign with using “Gestapo tactics” to pick up delegates. Chuck Todd confronts Manafort with threats from Roger Stone and asks what is “fair game” to win a delegate. “You go to these county conventions, and you see the tactics, Gestapo tactics, the scorched-earth tactics,” Manafort said on Sunday’s broadcast of NBC’s Meet the Press. Manafort also elaborated on his increasing role in the Trump campaign. “There’s a transition. It’s a natural transition. Trump was doing very well on a model that made sense. But now that the campaign has gotten to the end stages, a more traditional campaign has to take place,” Manafort said. Transcript, via NBC News: CHUCK TODD: What is fair game to win a delegate? Is threatening a fair game? Is threats a fair game? PAUL MANAFORT: … Read entire article »

Podesta: Sanders Voted For Now-Controversial 1994 Crime Bill; Bragged About It As Late As 2006

On This Week With George Stephanopoulos, Clinton campaign manager John Podesta fires back at Bernie Sanders for demanding an apology from Bill Clinton over the 1994 crime sentencing reform bill he signed. “I think the president got a little hot,” he said about Bill Clinton’s confrontation with protesters about the subject this week. “[But Bernie Sanders] voted for this bill. He doesn’t regret it. He, in 2006, he campaigned for the Senate, saying I’m tough on crime.” STEPHANOPOULOS: You saw Senator Sanders not backing down on that call for President Clinton to apologize for that engagement with the protester — PODESTA: Yes, I think the president got a little hot. But I think that the charge is misled, because I think what the president has done has said that there were unintended … Read entire article »

Sanders: I Am Strongest Candidate To Defeat Trump Or Cruz

SANDERS: Here’s the point, George. In the last three and a half weeks, we have reduced her margin by a third. I think the proper number is about 220 delegates or so that we are now behind. We’re moving to New York State. We’re moving to Pennsylvania. We’re heading out west to California, Oregon, a lot of big states out there. We believe that we have the momentum. Well — we believe that the polling is showing that we’re closing the gap. Actually, as you may have noticed, of the last three national polls out there, we have defeated Secretary Clinton in two of them. So there’s no question I think the momentum is with us. We have come a really, really long way and I think we can win this. STEPHANOPOULOS: … Read entire article »

Woodward: Obama Commenting on Clinton Investigation "Proves We're In A Political Situation Now"

Bob Woodward on Hillary Clinton’s private server and President Obama weighing in on the Justice Department probe in an interview with Chris Wallace on this week’s FOX News Sunday. Woodward said Obama not only touched a hot stove, “he put his arms around it” with his defense of Hillary Clinton in commenting on an ongoing investigation. BOB WOODWARD: He is anticipating the defense where he said it is unintentional to establish that there was a crime here. One of the elements is intent. And as best I can tell no one is saying she intentionally put out this material. Also President Obama said, look this is carelessness. I understand that what they’re going to be able to say is no crime because there was no intent. You have the system and … Read entire article »

Tom Bevan: Five Most Likely Outcomes For GOP Convention

RCP co-founder Tom Bevan spoke to Fox News Channel’s Megyn Kelly on Friday about the five most likely outcomes for the Repubican primary: TOM BEVAN: If you look at scenario #1, I’d rate this at about 25% –a one-in-four chance that Trump acutally gets outright 1,237 delegates. That will become a lot clearer after New York in about 11 days. If he can stay above 50% and sweep up a lot of those delegates that will boost him going into the other East coast primaries. The other state to watch is Indiana, that is being sort of overlooked. If Trump can win in Indiana, that’ll set him up for a pretty good position in California… He’s not going to get there by much, it is going to come down to just … Read entire article »

George Will Defends Cruz: There Are "New York Political Values" Not Shared By The Rest Of The Country

GEORGE WILL: I don’t think the New York values hurts him in New York because he’s really not trying to win New York, either now or in November. He’s trying to pick up delegates. That’s why he went to a Dominican-Chinese restaurant, you have to love this country, Dominican-Chinese restaurant at the most Democratic district in the country in the Bronx where Mitt Romney got 3% of the vote last time. Why did he go there? Because each of the 27 districts in New York gets three delegates. He can pick them up along the way and hold Mr. Trump below 75 delegates and have a success. About New York Values, he was not saying New York firemen are any less brave than New Mexico firemen. That is not the … Read entire article »

#BlackLivesMatter Supporter Questions Bernie Sanders About "Zionist Jews" Controlling Wall Street

At a town hall event in Harlem Saturday night, Bernie Sanders responds to an angry question from John Prince, who came to the event wearing a Black Lives Matter pin about his Jewish background, time he spent in Israel, and the role of “Zionist Jews” in controlling the Federal Reserve and Wall Street banks. “You grew up 18 years as a Jewish man in Brooklyn,” the man said. “What is your affiliation to your Jewish community? That’s all I’m asking.” QUESTION: You have mentioned earlier that your Jewish faith, like most of us, makes our morals, our values, and our beliefs, right? You grew up 18 years as a Jewish man in Brooklyn, and I read on Wikipedia, this might be wrong, you actually studied in Israel for a year… As you … Read entire article »

Sanders: President Clinton Owes Us An Apology For "Defending Indefensible" Use Of The Term "Super-Predator"

At a town hall event in Harlem Saturday night, Bernie Sanders expounds on the debate over Hillary Clinton’s use of the term “super-predators” to refer to young black criminals in support of the 1994 crime sentencing reform bill which her husband signed into law. Related Video: Hillary Clinton: “Over-Incarceration” Is A Consequence Of 1994 Crime Bill QUESTION: Let’s start with the term: “Super-predators.” Earlier this week, Bill Clinton made some very disturbing comments, trying to defend Sec.Clinton’s now-infamous super-predators comment to disparage the #BlackLivesMatter activists. What are your thoughts about what he said? BERNIE SANDERS: Unacceptable. I think we all know what that term meant. AUDIENCE MEMBER: Yes. BERNIE SANDERS: In the context that it was said. We know who they were talking about. AUDIENCE MEMBER: Right, black people. BERNIE SANDERS: … Read entire article »
