‘Get ready to eat it’: As Trump clinches the
nomination, it’s time to dine on my words
Washington Post, by Dana Milbank    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 5/5/2016 4:33:55 AM     Post Reply
The tweets and emails started immediately after Donald Trump’s victory Tuesday night: “You’ve got a promise to keep, bub.” “Get ready to eat it.” “EAT IT!!!” To them, I say: Con gusto. Seven months ago I said I would eat an entire column, newsprint and ink, if Trump won the nomination, calculating that Republican voters were better than Trump. The Republican voters let me down: Though a majority didn’t support him, enough did, and no viable alternative arose. But you, the reader, have revived my faith in America. I put out a call for recipes and you responded, via Twitter, Facebook, email and the comments section.

Bonfire of the Inanities: Pyromaniac Pols, Polities

The dictionary definition of “inane” stresses the adjectives “silly” and “stupid.” A better pair of descriptors could not be found for what the 2016 campaign has given us. Voter Tunnel Vision Voters have a long history in the open primary era of supporting candidates without regard to electability, leading Fred Barnes to call electability “the worst primary argument” in a recent article. Voters begin by conveniently presuming their preferred choice electable. Only during the general election campaign do these voters factor in electability. And that is how a party can come to be buried in an epic landslide. Compartmentalized Candidates Donald Trump lives in

War by any other name: A SEAL´s
death shows US involvement in
Iraq is more than just advisory

Navy SEAL Charlie Keating IV — an adviser to Kurdish troops in Mosul, Iraq — was killed Tuesday in an encounter with Islamic State militants. Keating, 31, born and raised in Phoenix, was a track star at Indiana University before joining the Navy after 9/11. Technically, Keating was not a combatant. He was an “adviser” who died in a firefight, rescuing other advisers under attack. Which is exactly as he should be remembered — as an American serviceman of high skill and valor, not because a grandfather of the same name had been a notable figure in the 1990s savings-and-loan crisis.

A bashful Bill Clinton took the stage in California Wednesday while campaigning for his wife, telling an admiring audience member that it had been a long time since a female had complimented him on his appearance. "You look great!" an audience member told Clinton, when he said he felt young. Clinton exhaled into his microphone and said that a young woman hadn´t flattered him on his looks in a while. "It´s been a long time since a girl said that to me," he said and laughed. The former president then lamented the inevitable aging process. "I usually get, ´you look good for a man your

They don´t have college degrees. They have few job prospects. They feel left behind. Nearly one-quarter of white men with only a high school diploma aren´t working. Many of these men, age 25 to 64, aren´t just unemployed ... they aren´t even looking for a job, according to federal data. Their college-educated peers, however, have fared much better. Only about one in 10 isn´t working. The plight of these blue collar workers is now in the national spotlight. The 2016 presidential election has awakened their political power and reshaped the course of the campaign. Their anger -- which has brought

Trump: I’m open to Cruz as VP

Donald Trump on Wednesday said that he would consider making Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) his running mate. “I respect Ted,” he told host Bill O’Reilly on Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor." "He was a very strong competitor. He really competed hard and tough." “He’s certainly a capable guy,” the presumptive GOP presidential nominee added. "It’s something we can think about." Trump defeated Cruz in Tuesday’s Indiana GOP presidential primary, making him the presumptive nominee. Cruz suspended his Oval Office bid shortly afterward, saying that his results in the Hoosier State “foreclose” his path to the Republican presidential nomination. Trump on

San Andreas fault ´locked,

big earthquake, expert says

Southern California’s section of the San Andreas fault is “locked, loaded and ready to roll,” a leading earthquake scientist said Wednesday at the National Earthquake Conference in Long Beach. The San Andreas fault is one of California’s most dangerous, and is the state’s longest fault. Yet for Southern California, the last big earthquake to strike the southern San Andreas was in 1857, when a magnitude 7.9 earthquake ruptured an astonishing 185 miles between Monterey County and the San Gabriel Mountains near Los Angeles. It has been quiet since then — too quiet, said Thomas Jordan, director of the Southern California



Obama Blames Flint Water Crisis on

During a speech to residents of Flint, Michigan, whose drinking water was contaminated with lead, President Obama appeared to partly blame "a preference for small government" for the crisis. Bloomberg: In a speech to about 1,000 residents, Obama urged them to resist assumptions that their children have been permanently harmed by consuming water with lead, and blamed "a mindset that believes that less government is the highest good, no matter what." He didn’t mention Michigan’s Republican governor, Rick Snyder, who addressed the audience earlier and professes the virtues of smaller government. Snyder has borne much of the blame for the contamination. "I do

With the news that Gov. John Kasich (R-OH) will suspend his fruitless campaign for president Wednesday at 5PM it’s worth asking the obvious question: Why now? Kasich lost every single caucus and primary over the past several months except for his home state of Ohio. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) has more delegates for the nomination than Kasich and he’s been out of the race for weeks. So why stay in as long as he did just to drop out when the race finally comes down to just two candidates? Let’s focus on a few key moments of the past several weeks that

Donald Trump is unfit to be president. He’s a braggart and a liar. And a serial adulterer. He’s behaved shamefully during the primary campaign. He wouldn’t recognize the Constitution if he tripped over it in the street. He doesn’t know even the Cliff Notes version of any policy issue. The idea that the party of Lincoln and Reagan, Coolidge and Eisenhower, Justice Harlan and Senator Taft has nominated Trump is appalling. And I’m going to vote for him anyway. I condemn no one for deciding otherwise. There are plausible arguments for not voting for him in November – to repudiate

Ted Cruz donor sat on
$9 million in super PAC

Toby Neugebauer made headlines last year by donating $10 million to a pro-Ted Cruz super PAC. He´s taking $9 million of it back. The Texas energy investor and son of retiring Rep. Randy Neugebauer ran Keep the Promise II, one of several pro-Cruz super PACs under the Keep the Promise umbrella. But despite pleas from fellow Cruz backers throughout the campaign, he never followed through with big spending to help the Texas senator against Donald Trump, only spending $1 million of his $10 million investment. Although Cruz, who ended his presidential hopes Tuesday, was never short on campaign or super PAC cash, Neugebauer´s

Hepatitis C now kills more people in the United States than every other infectious disease combined, according to new government data. The report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that deaths associated with hepatitis C reached an all-time high of 19,659 in 2014, surpassing the total combined number of deaths from 60 other infectious diseases reported to CDC, including HIV, pneumococcal disease, and tuberculosis. "This is a very alarming trend," Dr. John W. Ward, director of CDC´s Division of Viral Hepatitis, told CBS News.

Donald Trump is now the all-but-inevitable Republican nominee and he’s started his first day by announcing he will renege on one of the core tenants of his campaign. He announced this morning on "Good Morning America" that he would accept “small contributions,” and he is now telling the Wall Street Journal that he won’t be entirely self-funding his campaign. “I’ll be putting up money, but won’t be completely self-funding, as I did during the primaries,” Trump told the WSJ. A campaign official confirmed to ABC News, as first reported by the WSJ, that Trump will tap into his vast personal Rolodex

RAMADI, Iraq -- This is what victory looks like in the Iraqi city of Ramadi: In the once thriving Haji Ziad Square, not a single structure still stands. Turning in every direction yields a picture of devastation. A building that housed a pool hall and ice cream shops - reduced to rubble. A row of money changers and motorcycle repair garages - obliterated, a giant bomb crater in its place. The square´s Haji Ziad Restaurant, beloved for years by Ramadi residents for its grilled meats - flattened. The restaurant was so popular its owner built a larger, fancier branch across the

The Republican Jewish Coalition congratulated Donald Trump on becoming the presumptive Republican nominee, but otherwise withheld praise for the candidate. “The Republican Jewish Coalition congratulates Donald Trump on being the presumptive Presidential nominee of the Republican Party,” said the statement from the group issued Wednesday, a day after it became clear that the real estate magnate had secured the party’s nomination with a crushing primary win in Indiana. Much of the rest of the statement focused on why the RJC continues to believe Hillary Clinton is “the worst possible choice for a commander in chief.” It did not otherwise mention Trump, unusual for

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Wednesday warned that Donald Trump is a “loose cannon” and said the United States should not take a risk on an unreliable candidate, according to Reuters. "He is a loose cannon, and loose cannons tend to misfire," she said in an interview with CNN, citing Trump stances including a claim that climate change was a Chinese hoax. The comments came as Trump appears to be the Republican presidential nominee, especially after his opponents Ted Cruz and John Kasich both stepped down following Trump’s victory in the Indiana primary. Clinton said in the interview that Trump would have

Is Hillary Clinton ready to run against presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump this fall? "Oh absolutely," she told CNN´s Anderson Cooper in her first interview since Trump became the last man standing on the Republican side. Clinton previewed her attacks against Trump, saying he´s a "loose cannon" who´s short on substance and heavy on "blustering, bullying" remarks. "I think it´s time to get serious: the man is the presumptive nominee," Clinton said.

David Cameron is prepared to meet Donald Trump if the US Presidential candidate visits Britain this Summer but has "no intention" of apologising for calling him "stupid and wrong". Mr Trump yesterday became the only candidate for the Republican presidential nomination after John Kasich, his last remaining opponent, announced that he was leaving the contest. The Prime Minister now faces the difficult task of rebuilding relations with Mr Trump after launching a scathing personal attack on the billionaire for proposing that Muslims should be barred from the US.

My God is that good,” Matthews said of Donald Trump’s wife during the network´s live coverage of Indiana’s primary on Tuesday night. “I could watch that runway show,” he added, seemingly unaware that he was being recorded. Following the “Hardball” host’s comments, co-anchor Brian Williams quickly moved to a commercial.

Child migration is surging again. The number of families and unaccompanied children apprehended on the southern border has skyrocketed this year, according to new figures from the Obama administration. The numbers, compiled by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), reveal that child migration is on par with 2014 levels, when a wave of kids –– thousands of them unaccompanied –– arrived at the southern border. The surge of illegal immigration quickly swamped border authorities, immigration courts and health and humanitarian workers, while sparking a political battle on Capitol Hill over the cause and proper response to the crisis.
