I will update the count above periodically. Here’s a link that is updating continuously.
9:31 Hillary loses the vagina vote. Sweet!
9:27 Kasich declared to have 2nd locked up, Cruz beginning to pull away from Jeb for third.
8:44 Hillary is getting pounded and handed her hat:
Hillary is now losing by at least 14 points. 56 to 42 Hillary is gonna plotz!
8:00 Sanders 51.4 40.3, Trump 33.1 Kasich 16.8 Bush 11.9 Rubio 10.2 Cruz 10.1. They just called the race for Trump with only 4%, I guess they can tell from the entrance and exit polls already.
7:48 Trump 34 Kasich 15 Bush 11 Cruz 10
So far with only about 1% in, Trump has 41% of vote, Cruz is second with 11%, trailed by Kasich and Bush at 10%.
With three counties in, Sanders is beating Clinton, 58 to 38.
CNN: 41% of Democrats want the policies of Barack Obama to continue.
Gee, didn’t know they thought that about Bernie…
The Huffington Post had announced last month that each of its stories on Trump would feature an editor’s note calling the candidate a “liar,” “racist” and “xenophobe.”
Small wonder she’s trying to hide them.
NEW YORK — When Hillary Clinton spoke to Goldman Sachs executives and technology titans at a summit in Arizona in October of 2013, she spoke glowingly of the work the bank was doing raising capital and helping create jobs, according to people who saw her remarks.
Clinton, who received $225,000 for her appearance, praised the diversity of Goldman’s workforce and the prominent roles played by women at the blue-chip investment bank and the tech firms present at the event. She spent no time criticizing Goldman or Wall Street more broadly for its role in the 2008 financial crisis.
“It was pretty glowing about us,” one person who watched the event said. “It’s so far from what she sounds like as a candidate now. It was like a rah-rah speech. She sounded more like a Goldman Sachs managing director.”
Obviously he was bacon to get in, but they didn’t go for the hammy attempt.
Here he is chasing the police who wouldn’t let him in.
That’s what stands out about the emails, the cosy relationship to dictating the press.
An email obtained by a Gawker via FOIA request details how a reporter for The Atlantic agreed to a write an article that was tailored to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton‘s specific demands.
In 2009, The Atlantic‘s Marc Ambinder emailed Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines asking for the text of a foreign policy speech Clinton was set to deliver later that day. “On two conditions,” Reines replied.
Ambinder agreed to the conditions before hearing what they were, responding “Ok.” Reines then laid out the conditions (“three, actually”):
Republicans likely to be the first ‘trolls’ banned.

Twitter is reaching out for help to curb abuse and harassment on its social network.
The company is forming what it’s dubbed the Twitter Trust & Safety Council, a group of safety advocates, academics and community groups focused on maintaining open dialogue on Twitter while preventing bullying and abuse.
Taking on harrassment and bullying has been a challenge for Twitter.
Just a year ago, Dick Costolo, who was CEO of Twitter at the time, said the company was struggling to take on harassing and abusive tweets, writing in a memo, “We suck at dealing with abuse and trolls on the platform and we’ve sucked at it for years.”
All Democrat town to blame Republicans for their misery.

A special counsel appointed to investigate the lead contamination of Flint’s water says the harshest criminal charge could include involuntary manslaughter.
Todd Flood suggested manslaughter as a possibility during a meeting with reporters Tuesday. He says government officials might face that charge if they were grossly negligent in breaching a duty.
Flood and others appointed by Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette remain in the early stages of their probe into the potential violation of civil or criminal laws. Flint’s water is contaminated from lead pipes, and experts have suggested a link between the city’s water switch and a Legionnaires’ disease outbreak in which some people died.
Really, truly, story is not a croc….
Joshua James has been arrested after allegedly tossing a 3-and-a-half-foot alligator into a Wendy’s drive-thru window. The Jupiter, Fla., resident pulled up to the drive-thru, received a drink from an employee and then threw the reptile into the restaurant, according to a report from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The incident occurred in October, but the suspect was only recently taken into custody by U.S. Marshals.
James, who admitted to having picked up the alligator along the side of a road, has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, illegally killing, possessing or capturing an alligator, and second-degree larceny petit theft, according to the Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office.
All apparently because of a mistake by the Justice Department.
A hacker, who wishes to remain anonymous, plans to dump the apparent names, job titles, email addresses and phone numbers of over 20,000 supposed Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) employees, as well as over 9,000 alleged Department of Homeland Security (DHS) employees, Motherboard has learned.
The hacker also claims to have downloaded hundreds of gigabytes of data from a Department of Justice (DOJ) computer, although that data has not been published.
On Sunday, Motherboard obtained the supposedly soon-to-be-leaked data and called a large selection of random numbers in both the DHS and FBI databases. Many of the calls went through to their respective voicemail boxes, and the names for their supposed owners matched with those in the database. At one point, Motherboard reached the operations center of the FBI, according to the person on the other end.
One alleged FBI intelligence analyst did pick up the phone, and identified herself as the same name as listed in the database. A DHS employee did the same, but did not feel comfortable confirming his job title, he said.
A decrepit socialist groveling for a decrepit race pimp’s endorsement would make for some good entertainment.
