H of Rep has 435 seats in total, presently Republicans holds 246 seats, Democrats hold 188 seats, and there is 1 vacant seat (John Boehner's seat from Ohio). Republicans hold 58 more seats. For Democrats to take control that would be quite a turn-a-round. Go Trump go!

Lots and lots of polls out today and look at Sanders

The Gov of Utah has publicized that 3 Utah missionaries were injured in the European airport bomb blasts this morning. Although all 3 GOP candidates have spoken out on the violence, Trump may benefit at the polls today as he tends to get a bit more support at such times.

So with 3 states (2 for the GOP) in play this evening, we can probably expect coverage as follows:

CNN - Clinton can do no wrong, and who is Sanders again?

Fox - the Republican cadidates aren't right-wing enough

MSNBC (hosted by Rachel Maddow) might actually have a bit of analysis 

And add that to the violence in Europe today

John…you didn’t have to get me anything!

Today, John Kasich gives the first of a series of gifts to Donald Trump. What’s inside the box? Maybe 58 delegates – from Arizona, which is winner-take-all.

A World War Has  Begun. Break The Silence - John Pilger

https://www.rt.com/op-edge/336785-world-war-break-silence/

"...The Obama administration has built more nuclear warheads, more nuclear delivery systems, more nuclear factories. Nuclear warhead spending along rise higher under Obama than under any American presidency. The cost over thirty years is more than $1 trillion.

A mini nuclear bomb is planned. It is known as the B61 Model 12. There has never been anything like it. General James Cartwright, a former Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, has said, 'Going smaller [makes this nuclear] weapon more thinkable.'

In the last 18 months, the greatest build-up of military forces since World War II - led by the United States - is taking place along Russia's western frontier. Not since Hitler invaded the Soviet Union have foreign troops presented such a demonstrable threat to Russia.

Ukraine, once part of the Soviet Union - has become a CIA theme park. Having orchestrated a coup in Kiev, Washington effectively controls a regime that is next door and hostile to Russia: a regime rotten with Nazis, literally.

Prominent parliamentary figures in Ukraine are the political descendants of the notorious OUN and UPA fascists. They openly praise Hitler and call for the persecution and expulsion of the Russian speaking minority.

This is seldom news in the West, or it is inverted to suppress the truth. [Or the Western citizenry is so brainwashed and Russophobic, as in Canada, that even  social democrats line up to shake the hands of visiting Ukrainian Nazi dignitaries. There are few complaints by 'progressives'. Anyone that does is accused of 'Putinism']

In Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia - next door to Russia - the US military is deploying combat troops, tanks, heavy weapons. This extreme provocation of the world's second nuclear power is met with silence in the West.

What makes the prospect of nuclear war, even more dangerous is a parallel campaign against China.

 

In the circus known as the American presidential campaign, Donald Trump is being presented as a lunatic, a fascist. He is certainly odious, but he is also a media hate figure. That alone should arouse our suspicions. The danger to the rest of us is not Trump, but Hillary Clinton.

Bernie Sanders has promised to support Clinton, if or when she's nominated....

Should Sanders win the nomination, Gabbard could very well be his choice for VP.  Although she would be barely old enough to qualify.  That she was born in American Somoa, and is a Hindu, would make the Trumpites heads spin.

CrossTalk: Trump vs Clinton

https://youtu.be/KOk1Hp08YDU

"The foreign policy establishment vs the novice - Hillary Clinton vs Donald Trump. Identified as a liberal interventionist, Clinton's views are hardly distinguishable from those of the neocons. Trump on the other hand, holds a number of unconventional - even controversial - foreign policy views. For better or rose, voters just may have a meaningful choice when they cast their ballots in November."

Whoever wins, we can be certain that Canada will be there to brown-nose them and do their bidding, while Canadians pretend to avoid all the awful implications of our ugly complicity and collaboration with the latest monster in the White House.

NorthReport

Sanders narrowed the delegate count with Clinton last nite by a bit and is expected to do well in the next few states. Somehow though Sanders needs to seriously up his game.

No wonder Cruz won Utah - can't wait for the convention where the GOP big boys steal the nomination from Trump  Laughing

Who is actually going to be the nominee Romney or Ryan?

Romney. but there'll still be riots ;)

Trump and Cruz are sure adding fuel to the flames of the recent violence in Europe but can either one win the GOP nomination?

Trump needs 60% of the remaining delegates, and Cruz thankfully needs 95%

The GOP establishment are desperately trying to get a brokered convention where both these losers will get the boot.

And it appears so far at least that Trump only has about 49% of the GOP delegates.

States like New Jersey and Pennsylvania are WTA. He wins those and he'll have a majority. Not to mention that he's expected to get the lion's share of the New York delegates.

Arizona: Hillary Clinton’s Election Fraud Masterpiece

The Clinton machine used brazen voter suppression and election fraud to steal Arizona

Rudy Panko

 

 

josh

That's baloney. It was the Republicans who created the long lines by cutting money for polling stations.

NorthReport

Including even SCOTUS I thought.

josh, is it the state that determines the number of polling stations, etc even for the primaries and caucuses?

 

 

josh

Yes, the federal government doesn't determine the number of polling stations. However, voting rights lawsuits can force states and localities to provide more stations.

NorthReport

How did that online voting experiment was it the GOP in Utah, go, as it appears that online voting is the answer.

...there are some pretty serious preasumptions here that I must challenge!
What difference does it make who make have created this process!
As if the Republicans and Democrats are in conflict...In this election it´s between the bankster candidates and the unknown uncontrollables, Trump and Sanders and .....vs. Clinton and ? the rest who may now all be out. Another assumption here is that the Parties somehow are in control, rather than the moneyed interests behind the scene!
The point of the story is that the ordinary and first timers didn´t vote, people who may have considered a so called alternative like Sanders!

It makes a difference if someone is accused of something they didn't do.
