Of course, it’s mathematically possible that Donald Trump will obtain a majority of delegates through the primary and caucus process, in which case all the talk about an open or contested convention is moot.

But the math is at least as likely to have Trump fall short, with only...

Say what you want about Donald Trump, but he has an instinctive knack for zeroing in on an opponent’s inherent weakness.

With Jeb, it was “low energy.” That term exploited a key perception problem of Jeb, and one he couldn’t shake. So too did “Little Marco,” which may have ended not only...

Tunnel warfare was a key to Hamas surviving the 2014 Gaza War.

Hamas used an extensive tunnel system to hide under civilian structures, to move terrorists, and to launch raids into Israel.

Tunnel entrances usually were within civilian homes in Gaza:

Shutting down major highways as a protest tactic is extremely dangerous.

Not only does it create the possibility of car accidents, it also traps motorists behind the road blockage, making it impossible for emergency vehicles or vehicles with people in distress to pass.

This tactic was used by anti-Israel protesters who hijacked a...

There are many reasons and ways to oppose Donald Trump. Policy, temperament, qualifications are all in play.

But leftists have come up with some very left-wing ways to protest.

One of the left-wing ways is to shout-down and disrupt his rallies:

To all the Trump supporters out there, and to The Donald, don’t get your hopes up about Trump defeating Hillary in New York State in a general election.

It’s delusion. Trump does have a strong base of support in Upstate NY, the vast area north and west of New York City.

The American Association of University Professors (AAUP) serves as a de facto authority on academic freedom, having published the guidelines by which most higher education institutions agree to abide, at least in principle if not legally.

AAUP, however, has no legal power to enforce its guidelines. The most it can do is...

There was supposed to be a Fox News Republican Debate Monday night. That was until Donald Trump did well last night, and decided he didn’t need another debate.

Trump says he didn’t even know about the debate, even though everyone else did, and won’t participate because he is speaking before AIPAC:

Donald Trump had a good night, but he’s still far from what it takes to win what is required — a majority of all delegates.

Here is the delegate count as of approximately 11:45 p.m. Eastern tonight. It will change somewhat because the delegate allocation calculations are not simple.

At one level, you could put this post in the “tell me something I don’t already know” category.

For several years I have been documenting anti-Israel activity on campus, typically part of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement and carried out by groups like Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP).

I haven’t covered this before, but there was a movement at Harvard Law School to remove three sheaths of wheat from its shield, because the sheaths of wheat represent the family crest of the slave-owning Royall Family.

I’ve probably seen the shield a million times, and never once until this controversy associated...

Rebel Pundit was at the Chicago anti-Trump protest, where he waded into the crowds and got some great footage of who the protesters really are and what they want.

He also found Bill Ayers and interviewed him.

It’s going to be a longer video, but here is a trailer of things to come.
