The Latest: Trial begins for Virginia voter ID law challenge

ID LawA lawyer for the Democratic Party of Virginia told a federal judge that the state's voter ID law was enacted by Republicans to suppress voting by minorities and young people.

Donald Trump Fires Up Birther Conspiracy About Marco Rubio

Trump fires up birther charge against RubioFirst it was President Barack Obama. Then it was Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas). Now, Donald Trump isn't sure whether Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) is eligible to be president.

Rubio was born in Miami to immigrant parents. He is eligible to be president.

"It was a retweet. ... I'm not really that familiar with Marco's circumstances," Trump said.

The decision was the first major action taken by the court since the death of Justice Antonin Scalia.


Trump hails torture, mass killings with ‘pigs blood’ ammo in SC

Trump hails tortureDonald Trump closed his South Carolina campaign on Friday with a rambling speech highlighted by a giddy, almost childlike, enthusiasm for torturing and summarily executing the suspected enemies of America in the name of safety.

Trump was in free-association mode ahead of Saturday’s primary, dwelling for an extended time on one topic, like heroin in New Hampshire or Japan’s monetary policy, and then jumping to another.

“I’m really good at the trade,” the billionaire told a crowd of thousands. “I’m really good at the borders.”
