SON MISSES CASH’S LAUGH John Carter Cash, 45, tells [email protected] what it was like being the son of legendary singer Johnny Cash, who died in 2003. “I miss his laugh. That is one thing that is overlooked about him,” he said. “My father was a funny man. Laughter was always first with him and he was full of laughter.” The Nashville native said his father also never forgot where he came from. “He carried that everywhere he went his entire life. It was easy to appreciate him.” Carter Cash, the singer's only son with June Carter Cash, has made a documentary on his father called “Johnny Cash: American Rebel,” which premieres Sept. 12.

Huckabee Predicts Trump Will Win & It Won’t Be as Close as People Think

Donald Trump will win the presidential election by a significant margin, Mike Huckabee predicted on Outnumbered today. With just four days to go, Hillary Clinton leads Trump by three points in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll. Trump led by one in the poll earlier this week. The former Arkansas governor, however, says all the momentum is on Trump's side right now. "I think Donald Trump wins Tuesday night and I think it's gonna be a significant win. I don't think it's gonna be as close as everybody thinks," he said. Huckabee said he believes that there is a lot of hidden support for Trump among people who won't say they're going to vote for him out of fear of being seen as a racist, a bigot or a xenophobe. "I hear it from every kind of person I talk to as I travel across this country. From flight attendants, to servers in restaurants, to cab drivers, to bellman in hotels [and] people that don't normally vote for a Republican," said Huckabee, calling out Pennsylvania as the state that could unexpectedly swing to Trump. Meghan McCain said some of her female friends in Arizona - who don't pay much attention to politics - have been swayed by recent headlines involving Anthony Weiner.One report - based on WikiLeaks - indicated that Clinton's staff knew Weiner was 'sexting' an underage girl as early as 2011, but didn't act."A really good friend of mine was like, 'they can say whatever they want about Donald Trump saying things [but] you're talking about condoning pedophilia,'" said McCain.Watch the full discussion above and don't miss a special edition of Outnumbered on Sunday at noon ET on Fox News Channel!

Does ‘Brexit’ vote mean Trump will win?

Shocked at the United Kingdom's decision to leave the European Union, American political observers can't help but wonder: Will this help Donald Trump?Trump certainly thinks so.Saying "people want to take their country back," the Republican presidential candidate told a news conference Friday in Scotland, "I really do see a parallel between what's happening in the United States and what's happening here."Although there are good signs for Trump in the "Brexit" vote, there are also signs it won't make much difference."Nobody really knows," Trump himself acknowledged. Among the good signs for Trump in the wake of the Brexit:• It shows what potent issues immigration and free trade have become for voters who are struggling economically; these issues are at the heart of  the Brexit and the  Trump campaign.• British politics have been known to presage developments in their former colony. Nearly four decades ago, conservative leader Margaret Thatcher overturned the British political establishment by becoming prime minister in 1979 — one year before Ronald Reagan did much the same thing by winning the American presidency.• Nationalism has re-emerged as a major political force in politics worldwide, and that bodes well for a candidate whose slogan is "Make America Great Again."• Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and President Obama supported British membership in the European Union; are they misreading the American political mood as well? There are also signs the Brexit won't matter in the USA in November:• This was an election unique to Europe, with few ramifications for the USA.• Markets in the USA and other countries are likely to take an economic hit over the Brexit, at least in the short term, and there will be other unforeseen consequences; the blowback could hurt Trump-style politics.• Elections are about individuals, and Continue Reading

Could the Electoral College elect Hillary Clinton instead of Donald Trump?

Can the Electoral College elect Hillary Clinton on Dec. 19?Yes, it may be constitutionally possible; but no, it will not happen, according to election experts. FULL ANSWERA Change.org petition, now signed by more than 4.3 million people, encourages members of the Electoral College to cast their votes for Hillary Clinton when the college meets on Dec. 19. The petition argues that Donald Trump is “unfit to serve” and that “Secretary Clinton WON THE POPULAR VOTE and should be President.”“If they all vote the way their states voted, Donald Trump will win,” the petition states. “However, they can vote for Hillary Clinton if they choose. Even in states where that is not allowed, their vote would still be counted, they would simply pay a small fine – which we can be sure Clinton supporters will be glad to pay! We are calling on the Electors to ignore their states’ votes and cast their ballots for Secretary Clinton.”A number of our readers reached out to us by phone and email and asked if it was true that members of the Electoral College are not bound to vote for the candidate who won a majority of votes in their state, and specifically whether the Electoral College could actually give the presidency to Clinton over Trump.Let’s back up a bit and explain how the Electoral College works, and why — an issue we addressed in 2008 in an article that has gotten a lot of views recently.As we explained then, when U.S. citizens go to the polls to “elect” a president, they are in fact voting for a particular slate of electors. The electors, selected based on which party’s candidate wins the most votes in a state, meet in their respective states 41 days after the popular election. There, they cast a ballot for president and a second for vice president. In every state but Maine and Nebraska, the candidate who wins the most votes (that is, a plurality) in the state is supposed Continue Reading

Tennessee Republicans hail Donald Trump’s win

WASHINGTON – Tennessee Republicans in Congress are congratulating President-elect Donald Trump on his victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton."The American people and the citizens of Tennessee have spoken in a remarkable and resounding way, and I congratulate President-elect Trump on his hard-earned win," Sen. Bob Corker said. "The real work now begins as we address the many challenges facing our great country, and I am looking forward to working with President Trump and the rest of the Congress to move our country forward."U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tennessee, who had stopped short of formally endorsing Trump’s candidacy during the campaign but backed the GOP nominee, called Trump’s win “the biggest political upset in my lifetime and maybe the biggest one ever.”“The election belongs to the people and the people voted for change and Donald Trump is the change agent,” Alexander told reporters Wednesday in Nashville as he congratulated Trump.“I think that means that the president-elect and those of us in Congress need to respond to what we heard yesterday,” he said. “To me, that means less Washington involvement in our lives. It means making it easier to buy lower-cost health insurance and get a job and making a system fair. I think it’s important we put the election behind us. The best way to make the kind of changes the country wants is for us to work together.”Just one month ago, Alexander said that Trump had driven the presidential campaign to a “new low” after Trump’s decade-old comments about groping women were exposed by the media.On Wednesday, Alexander said that he thought “he and Hillary Clinton” ran campaigns that brought the campaign to a low level but expressed confidence in Trump to unite the country.“That’s behind us,” Alexander said. “I think it’s time now to bring out the best in us. I think he’s perfectly capable Continue Reading

In Wisconsin visit Tuesday, Donald Trump will tout apprenticeships to close skills gap

WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump will visit Waukesha County Technical College on Tuesday as part of his push to expand the nation’s use of apprenticeships to fill unmet labor needs, White House officials said.Trump will tour the school with his daughter and adviser Ivanka Trump, Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta and Gov. Scott Walker. The president will headline a political fundraiser afterward for Walker, who is up for re-election next year.The White House is using its visit to the school to publicize its goal to vastly “scale up” the use of apprenticeship programs to close a skills gap that is making it hard to fill many jobs in manufacturing and other sectors.A four-year college degree “is not the right path for everyone,” said Ivanka Trump, who has visited and hailed Germany’s famed apprenticeship system as a model for the U.S. She said apprenticeships were a key to making sure “the next generation of the American worker is trained in the skills of the future.”White House aide Reed Cordish said the visit to WCTC would highlight the “marriage” between businesses and community colleges and technical schools when it comes to training workers to fill jobs that are locally available and in demand.Wisconsin is an example of a blue-collar state with a relatively strong tradition, by U.S. standards, of apprenticeships.

Robb: Trump will win in 2020 if the left keeps calling him a racist

Way too early for this kind of stuff, but I had been thinking that there was no way Donald Trump would be re-elected.He was elected to shake up Washington, and he’s certainly done that. But nothing is getting done and his superficial leadership is much to blame. After four years of having a Tweeter-in-Chief, surely the American people would want some stability from their president.My anticipated scenario went like this: After three years, Trump declares victory. Announces that America is now great again, and his job is finished. Lesser mortals, such as Mike Pence, can take it from here.So, he’s not running for re-election.Of late, however, I’ve revised my outlook. I now believe that the left will re-elect Trump. The ruction over NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem illustrates the point.The left has talked itself into believing that Trump’s alleged appeals to white racism were what put him over the top.More astute psephologists have pointed out that the actual difference was made by people in industrial states who previously had voted for Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012, but switched to Trump over Hillary Clinton in 2016. Hard to attribute those decisions to white racism.Nevertheless, the left now interprets all of Trump’s actions through the prism of perceived appeals to white racism. If Trump were to tweet, “It’s a lovely day in Washington,” the left would denounce it as a dog whistle to white supremacists.Which brings us to the NFL ruction. Players began kneeling during the national anthem reportedly to protest what they regard as racial injustice in the United States. Trump denounced them in Trumpian fashion.According to the left, since the players were protesting racial injustice, Trump was endorsing racial injustice by criticizing them. There goes that dog whistle!To most Americans, that’s nuts.I’m not much of a flag waver. And I’ve never really understood why sporting events begin Continue Reading

Donald Trump will not run for President in 2012 after toying with possible Republican candidacy

Donald Trump won't be throwing his hair into the ring. The mogul and reality TV star announced Monday he won't be running for President after all, pulling the rug out from under GOP fans in Iowa but allowing pundits everywhere to crow "I told you so." Trump, who has danced around running twice before, had insisted that he was really serious this time - and even started coming in tops among Republicans in some early polling. "I will not be running for president - as much as I'd like to," Trump said at a meeting of TV execs in New York. "Business is my greatest passion and I am not ready to leave the private sector." His trademark bluster was inctact. "I maintain the strong conviction that if I were to run, I would be able to win the primary and ultimately, the general election," Trump said. Amid a weak GOP field, Trump galvanized primary voters by repeatedly hammering President Obama for a copy of his long-form birth certificate, playing into conspiracy theories about the President's legitimacy. Critics had widely agreed that Trump's presidential patter was actually a head fake designed to drum up ratings for his TV show. To make a serious bid, Trump would have had to quit his TV show and release his tax returns, finally revealing the true extent of his wealth.Trump officially ended his flirtation with the presidency at a gathering of NBS execs in New York, where it was announced that "Celebrity Apprentice" was renewed for another season.Trump had promised to make an announcement about his candidacy on the season finale of the show next month, vowing people would be "very surprised."In bowing out, Trump promised his fans: "I will continue to voice my opinions loudly and help to shape our politician's thoughts."My ability to bring important economic and foreign policy issues to the forefront of the national dialogue is perhaps my greatest asset and one of the most valuable services I can provide to this country."Trump's Continue Reading
