Super Tuesday Results: Trump Wins 5, Cruz 2

Tuesday, March 1st, 2016

According to early returns, Donald Trump has won five states on Super Tuesday: Alabama, Georgia, Massachusetts, Tennessee, and Virginia, while Ted Cruz has won Texas and Oklahoma. In states not called yet, it also appears that Trump will win Vermont (over John Kasich) and Arkansas, while Marco Rubio has a very early lead in Minnesota.

I suppose I should be encouraged that Trump didn’t break 50% in any of those races, but it’s obvious that Cruz can’t win against Trump unless Rubio, Kasich and Carson drop out…and possibly not even then.

On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton won everything but Bernie Sanders’ home state of Vermont and Oklahoma. Sanders has a small lead in Colorado and Clinton a small lead in Massachusetts and a slightly larger lead in Minnesota.

If Cruz can’t win in Georgia and Alabama, it’s hard to see where he stops Trump with Rubio and Kasich still on the ballot.

If Sanders can’t win in Massachusetts and Minnesota, it’s simply over for him.

We’re slowly slouching toward a Clinton-Trump Presidential election.

God help us all.

Update: Both Rubio and Sanders win Minnesota.

This Week in Jihad for March 10, 2011

Thursday, March 10th, 2011

Another week of Jihad news from the usual sources:

  • Multiculturalism is a failure in France, Germany, and the UK.
  • Egypt has sent special forces into Libya to help topple Gadhafi.
  • Turkey cracks down on critics of the Islamic government.
  • Alabama latest state to have law introduced banning Sharia.
  • Death penalty suggested for Ft. Hood shooter Nidal Hasan. Given that the shooting happened all the way back in 2009, isn’t this a little slow even for the usual wheels of American justice? Maybe if we’re lucky, the actual trial will occur in the home stretch of the 2012 election…
  • France recognizes the rebel government in Libya.
  • What’s the best way to protect the rights of women worldwide? Obviously, appoint the Islamic Republic of Iran to the UN Commission on the Status of Women.
  • Iran is arming the Taliban with rockets.
  • Zimbabwe to sell uranium to Iran. Chalk up another victory to the Axis of Assholes…
  • Fire a disc jockey for expressing reservations about Islam? WMAL decides to Gopher it.
  • Rep. Peter King (R-NY) to hold hearings on the radicalization of American Muslims.
  • Cops agree with King that they don’t get enough tips from the Muslim community.
  • Mark Steyn thinks that if we are going to be doing nation-building, we shouldn’t do such a half-assed job of it.
  • C.) The Jews.
  • You’ve probably seen the news that another James O’Keefe sting caught the director of NPR on camera bashing Republicans, Christians, and Zionists.

  • Today brought followup news that O’Keefe caught another NPR promising to shield members of the group from a government audit.
  • Even NPR staffers are offended. Or at least pretending to be, in order to prevent that sweet, sweet taxpayer teat from being turned off.
