Trump wins South Carolina, beating Nikki Haley in her home state

Trump wins SC primaryDonald Trump easily defeated Nikki Haley in South Carolina's Republican contest on Saturday, extending his winning streak as he marches toward a third consecutive presidential nomination and a rematch with Democratic President Joe Biden.
The former president had been widely favored to win the Southern state, despite his litany of criminal charges and Haley's status as a native of South Carolina who won two terms as governor.
The big win will bolster calls from Trump's allies that Haley, Trump's last remaining challenger, should drop out of the race. But Haley, who appeared to have outperformed expectations based on opinion polls, again defiantly insisted she would fight on at least through "Super Tuesday" on March 5, when Republicans in 15 states and one U.S. territory will cast ballots.

Black leaders, DNC blast Trump for ‘racist’ comments

Trump racist commentsBlack leaders are condemning former President Trump’s recent comments about Black voters as “racist.”

Speaking at the Black Conservative Federation (BCF) annual gala in South Carolina on Friday, Trump said his legal woes have earned him the support of Black voters around the country.

“I got indicted for nothing, for something that is nothing,” Trump told the crowd. “And a lot of people said that’s why the Black people like me, because they have been hurt so badly and discriminated against, and they actually viewed me as I’m being discriminated against. It’s been pretty amazing but possibly, maybe, there’s something there.”

The former president added that Black Americans also “embraced” his mugshot and that he knows Black people because they built his buildings.


Jan. 6 rioter who assaulted police calls for 'accountability' for 2020 election lies

Brian Christopher MockA Minnesota man convicted of assaulting multiple officers during the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol called for "accountability" for politicians who spread lies about the 2020 election during his sentencing hearing on Thursday.

Brian Mock was sentenced to 33 months in federal prison, a fraction of the nine years in federal prison that prosecutors had sought. A government sentencing memo noted Mock's repeated assaults on law enforcement and the "multiple false statements" he made at trial. With credit for time he's already served, Mock will end up serving less than two years of additional time behind bars.


Bewildered Conservatives Greet a Fallen British Prime Minister

Half empty CPAC hosts bewildered ex UK PMOn Thursday, an ousted world leader went to a far-right political conference in the United States to rage about how they and the conservative movement were betrayed by enemies within.

No, it wasn’t Donald Trump. It was Liz Truss.

The former British prime minister who lasted just seven weeks in office spoke in a hotel conference room that was less than half full, sandwiched between a social conservative activist who insisted “there is no such thing” as transgender children and a far-right author who insists that the January 6 attack on the Capitol was “the biggest instance of police brutality” in the United States since the Civil Rights movement.
