Cruz picked up a valuable endorsement from Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, but its impact was blunted when Pence spent much of his time praising Donald Trump before endorsing Cruz.
In case you weren’t keeping up with the outrageous behavior of anti-Trump protesters in California, here is a handy blow-by-blow recap in photos of their actions outside the state convention, complete with burning American flag. This followed the rioting outside a Trump rally in Orange County Thursday, where protesters blocked streets, smashed police cars and waved Mexican flags. Nobody is trying to deny their right to protest, but this was not “peaceful assembly,” it was violent confrontation in an attempt to suppress their opposition’s right to free speech.
This week, Lena Dunham vowed to leave America if Donald Trump is elected, and former House Speaker John Boehner called Ted Cruz “Lucifer in the flesh.” I’m still trying to decide which of those two stories constitutes the more valuable endorsement with conservative voters.
The last movie Will Ferrell made, “Zoolander 2,” was so excruciatingly unfunny that film critic Leonard Maltin left halfway through. He wrote that in half a century of reviewing movies, this was the first time he’d ever walked out on one. It seems almost impossible to top that.
Even after nearly eight years of trying, President Obama has not been able to enact the strict gun control laws he’s wanted, largely because Americans kept asking the question gun control advocates have never been able to answer: “How, exactly, would this law actually prevent violent crime?” We know that most criminals obtain guns illegally, so gun laws mostly just disarm the law-abiding.

Voters Send A Message

April 27, 2016

First of all, polls show a large majority of Republicans, including non-Trump supporters, think that whoever has the majority of delegates should be the nominee.

Give Kasich A Break

April 26, 2016

The Cruz-Kasich alliance to deny delegates to Trump lasted all of one weekend. Who would’ve imagined these two would have trouble getting along with others? Comic Jimmy Kimmel said, “It’s a crazy plan, but as long as they did it three months ago, it just might work.”

Donald Trump not only blasted Cruz and Kasich for “colluding” against him, he also riffed on the “disgusting” way John Kasich eats food on the campaign trail. This is the type of both-barrels bluster his fans love, but that critics call vulgar and unpresidential. Personally, I think the Donald should get back to talking about the pocketbook issues that got his base fired up in the first place and cool the personal mockery. With the poll and delegate lead he has over Kasich, it just looks like he’s punching down.

Besides that, I feel a little sympathy for Kasich. When you’re campaigning, people hand you all kinds of foods they expect you to eat, and it can be awkward to try to oblige, especially when you’re in a hurry and it’s some messy and unfamiliar dish. For instance, this year marks the 40th anniversary of then-President Gerald Ford visiting the Alamo, being handed a tamale, and trying to eat it with the corn husk still on. It wasn’t his fault that nobody told him you have to take the wrapper off. Yet it’s 40 years later, and here we are still talking about it. I wonder which one we’ll remember longer: the Alamo or the Great Tamale Blunder?

According to Bernie Sanders, one big reason he’s losing to Hillary Clinton is that the poor who are his natural constituency just aren’t turning out to vote. But even low income Americans who did vote weren’t feelin’ the Bern.

Amtrak Primary Today

April 26, 2016

Today, five states vote in what’s known as the “Amtrak primary,” and that’s not because a couple of campaigns are likely to go off the rails today.
Today’s Huck’s Hero salute goes out to Alabama A&M student Rodney Smith Jr., who exemplifies Christ’s command to “Love thy neighbor,” especially the elderly and disabled. Read the story to be inspired. Maybe you’ll even be inspired to help his unusual crusade. Or to ask yourself, "Am I my brother's groundskeeper?"

Obama and Veterans

April 25, 2016

Maybe a better solution would be to concentrate on getting the private sector economy revved back up and once again creating good-paying jobs. Then veterans wouldn’t need to land government jobs. They could work in the private sector, where being efficient and goal-oriented are actually considered positives.

Of course, I was always surprised to be invited to be part of the channel the first time, and even more surprised and delighted they’d still have me back!
Let’s all offer a big Huck’s Hero salute to Cumberland County, North Carolina District Court Judge Lou Olivera. Judge Olivera stepped up to help a fellow vet even when standing by his side meant spending a night in jail with him. In a time when so many government officials whose job is to help our wounded warriors have shamefully let them down and really deserve to see the inside of a jail, Judge Olivera showed them what “leaving no soldier behind” looks like.

Buy-cott God's Not Dead 2

April 20, 2016

I am urging believers across America to buy a ticket to God’s Not Dead 2 while it’s in the theaters. The more successful a film like this is, the more insignificant...
