Trump haters, Canada has a gun-free, pro-choice, ultra-diverse haven for you. A proud native of a sparsely populated Canadian island is begging Americans to move to his homeland as bombastic billionaire Donald Trump continues his campaign for the White House. “Hi Americans! Donald Trump may become the President of your country! If that happens, and you decide to get the hell out of there, might I suggest moving to Cape Breton Island,” website "Cape Breton if Donald Trump Wins" declared. Hundreds of Americans have sent inquiries since the cheeky site launched, creator Rob Calabrese, a Canadian radio announcer, told the Globe and Mail. “I’m in disbelief,” he said referencing the flood of emails. “I wish everyone from Cape Breton could read them because they really make you proud of living here.” While Cape Breton’s government is not affiliated with the site, the Nova Scotia island’s tourism department has seen a surge … [Read more...] about Canadian island ready to take in Americans if Donald Trump becomes President: ‘We need people.

Count John Kasich as a cautious supporter of #NeverTrump. The Ohio governor and former presidential candidate says "it may not be possible" for him to support Donald Trump for President because of his willingness to "run people into the ditch." "Unless I see a fundamental change in that approach, it's really hard for me to do a merger," he told the Columbus Dispatch. "Think of it as a merger of two companies. If the values are not somewhat similar, if the culture is not somewhat similar, it's pretty hard to do a merger," he continued. Kasich only won his home-state primary, but was the final candidate running against Trump in the GOP primary. And while his national reach is limited, he remains popular in his home state — a must-win swing state for Trump if he hopes to become President. … [Read more...] about John Kasich says supporting Donald Trump for President ‘may not be possible’

Conventional … [Read more...] about Death of a salesman: If Donald Trump becomes President, his supporters will soon experience epic disillusionment
The way Jennifer Lawrence sees it, a prospective President Trump wouldn’t even have a country to preside over. “If Donald Trump becomes President, that will be the end of the world,” the “Hunger Games” star told Entertainment Weekly in an interview published Thursday about the 2016 Republican front-runner. “I genuinely believe that reality television has reached the ultimate place where now even things like this might just be for entertainment,” the actress said. “I was watching him on the campaign trail and one guy said, ‘I love Donald Trump because he’s saying everything I’m thinking and I just can’t say it because of the PC factor.” “And I’m thinking, ‘You are absolutely right. That’s who I want representing my country, somebody politically incorrect. That will just be perfect,’” she added. Trump remains in first place in the race for the … [Read more...] about Jennifer Lawrence says if Donald Trump becomes President the world will end

But surprisingly, it has nothing to do with my health. It has to do with my freedom.I know what you are thinking — your humble narrator continues to be unabashed in his assailing of crooked law enforcement, bias-filled bigots and corrupt politicians.

Expect a dramatic reduction in emphasis on combating climate change, more fossil fuel mining and drilling and less environmental regulation generally under a Donald Trump presidency.That's the consensus of academics and environmental advocates as they rush to read the tea leaves of Trump's campaign rhetoric and his transition team moves to discern how he will act on environmental issues following the Republican businessman's upset victory in Tuesday's presidential election."We're going to see everything driven, essentially, by economics," said Mark Barteau, director of the University of Michigan Energy Institute."Wind and solar (energy) will get support only to the extent they are economically competitive." ►Related: UAW seeks to join Trump in effort to dismantle NAFTAAccepting any politician's campaign rhetoric as gospel for how he or she will govern is unwise.

Donald Trump may be the second Republican reality-show star to throw his name into the presidential ring. But not quite yet, he told a crowd at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C., on Thursday. "I wish there was a candidate that I saw that would be fantastic because I love what I'm doing," Trump said to boos at the annual conference. "In fact, I have a great club that's 15 minutes away." Those boos quickly turned to a mix of boos and cheers when he leaned in and added: "By the way, Ron Paul can't get elected, I'm sorry to tell you." A C-SPAN camera zoomed in on audience members holding up signs that read "Ron Paul for President," but Trump seemed unfazed. "I think he's a good guy," Trump continued, "but honestly, he just has zero chance of getting elected. You have to win an election." If Trump does make the run, he said, his plans will include putting a 25% tariff on all imports from China to help cut America's $38.7 billion trade deficit. … [Read more...] about Donald Trump for President?
