In this most unpredictable of all presidential campaign seasons, there is at least one thing that can be counted on to hold true.

California remains a reliable stronghold for the Democratic Party, in general — and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, specifically.

That assumption is based on recent polling in the Golden State, including a well-respected USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times poll released today.

The 2016 campaign for the U.S. presidency will likely always be remembered as the first time (and, let’s hope, the last) that a candidate’s genitals became an issue.

Anonymous Isn’t April Foolin’ About War on Trump

The hacking group Anonymous is again threatening to make life harder on Donald Trump.

Here’s one more Anonymous video explaining why the group is going after Trump.

A protester briefly sabotaged a Trump rally yesterday by switching off the stage lights. Caught in the dark in mid-rant on the stage, Trump went first addressed the situation with sarcasm and then went into a rage — displaying the sort of seemingly erratic behavior that disqualified at least one candidate in the past.
