Clinton beats back strong challenge from Sanders in Nevada caucuses

Clinton wins NevadaDemocratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton beat back a strong challenge from Bernie Sanders in the Nevada caucuses on Saturday, a result that could help calm worries among supporters about the strength of her campaign.

Clinton's victory denied Sanders the breakthrough win he sought in a state with a heavy minority population, but his ability to close a one-time double-digit polling lead for Clinton suggested the Democratic nominating race would be long and hard fought.


Supreme Court denies North Carolina redistricting delay, primary election date moved

SC debies NC redistricting delayThe U.S. Supreme Court won't stop a North Carolina court's decision that state legislators redraw the congressional electoral map, a move that will delay for months the state's House primary elections.

The order issued 10 p.m. Friday means the primary is being moved from the originally scheduled March date to June and denies the state's request for the Supreme Court to intervene after accusations of racially charged gerrymandering. The decision was the first major action taken by the court since the death of Justice Antonin Scalia.


Trump hails torture, mass killings with ‘pigs blood’ ammo in SC

Trump hails tortureDonald Trump closed his South Carolina campaign on Friday with a rambling speech highlighted by a giddy, almost childlike, enthusiasm for torturing and summarily executing the suspected enemies of America in the name of safety.

Trump was in free-association mode ahead of Saturday’s primary, dwelling for an extended time on one topic, like heroin in New Hampshire or Japan’s monetary policy, and then jumping to another.

“I’m really good at the trade,” the billionaire told a crowd of thousands. “I’m really good at the borders.”


Obama: I Intend To Nominate A 'Very Well Qualified Candidate' To Supreme Court

Obama to nominate 'qualified' SC JusticePresident Obama said Tuesday that despite Republican vows to block him, he will nominate a successor to Justice Antonin Scalia, who died suddenly on Saturday.

Obama spoke during a news conference after a summit with leaders from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations in Rancho Mirage, Calif., but the first questions from reporters were about filling the empty Supreme Court seat.


Marco Rubio ad mistakes Canada's Vancouver for US city

Vancouver skylineA new campaign advert for US presidential candidate Marco Rubio is promising a return to "morning in America," but the ad has the sun rising over the Canadian city of Vancouver.

The city's skyline shows prominently in the ad, which recalls Ronald Reagan's successful 1984 campaign slogan.

In its opening moments, a tugboat bearing the Canadian flag passes through Vancouver's harbour.


Donald Trump’s Trolls Unleash Hell on Veterans

Trump and fake supportersVeterans who have passed on being the GOP frontrunner’s props have found themselves targeted by his legion of trolls.

Veterans groups who stood up to Donald Trump’s pandering to their ranks are now routinely bombarded with nasty messages from the mogul’s supporters, who want to punish them for daring to challenge their leader.  

Paul Rieckhoff, the CEO of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, learned this first-hand when he stood up to the Republican presidential frontrunner in late January, saying he would decline any donations from Trump’s charitable foundation if offered.


President Obama's Supreme Court short list

Obama's short list for SC nominationThe unexpected passing of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia immediately set lawyers and politicians talking about who would get the nod from President Barack Obama to fill Scalia's slot.

However, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's vow to not confirm any nominee during the remainder of Obama's term creates an awkward dynamic around any potential pick.

Whoever is nominated will have to consider the possibility of being in limbo for a year or more, if the Senate fails to act during the election year. However, that person might also have a leg up on being nominated by Hillary Clinton, if she wins the nomination and the general election in November.
