Now that Donald Trump has acquired the number of delegates needed to clinch the Republican nomination, he still has another hurdle to clear. Some conservatives are still saying #NeverTrump and Bill Kristol of the Weekly Standard is still pushing for another candidate.

Former Facebook employees have told Gizmodo that the company regularly told them to stamp out conservative news even if it trended on the website.

From Gizmodo:

Several former Facebook “news curators,” as they were known internally, also told Gizmodo that they were instructed to artificially “inject” selected stories into the trending news module,...

Donald Trump in VT

Is Donald Trump the Republican nominee?

Not *technically,* but it is much, much more likely than a day ago. There is an ever so slight possibility that Trump could be denied 1237 delegates going into the convention. I hope Cruz fights on. [Update – not to be, Cruz suspends campaign.]

The long-running underground Hollywood conservative group, Friends of Abe, is no more.

FOA announced yesterday that with the group’s growth came an unsustainable infrastructure; one too cumbersome to continue without a substantive overhaul.

One has to wonder if the increasing conservative attacks are the reason why Donald Trump dropped out of his CPAC appearance at the last minute.

At least the Twitter chatter I’ve seen the past day from people at the conference was pretty hostile. And let’s face it, Ted Cruz took him to the...

Hannity and Trump 2

One of the most fascinating aspects of the Republican side of the 2016 election has been the sharp divide among conservatives over Donald Trump. People tend to fall into one of three camps; love him, hate him or will support him if he’s the nominee.

On one side, you’ve got multiple conservative...

Iran Side Deal

It started yesterday, when conservative Republicans in the House expressed strong disagreement with the GOP leadership over whether to proceed with the vote of disapproval on the Iran deal. The conservative wing aimed to force Obama to first live up to the terms of Corker-Menendez and disclose the still-secret side...

Those who were around during the Vietnam War protest days remember all those marches on Washington. I attended one, and it was absolutely huge and very impressive.
