Huckabee on Fox News: I'll Make An Announcement About a 2016 Run on May 5th in Hope, Arkansas (VIDEO)

'Probably a pretty good chance he's in the race if he's making the announcement in Hope, Arkansas.
Huckabee lays out a possible path to the nomination here on Special Report-


If I had to bet, I'd say Mike Huckabee will not be the Republican nominee in 2016. Outside of Iowa, and maybe South Carolina, what states can he win? The evangelical vote will only get him so far and it will be much tougher for him this time around. Not only will Rick Santorum be competing for those votes, but Senator Ted Cruz and Governor Scott Walker, both of them are the son of a Pastor.

Also, Huckabee left the Governor's office in January of 2007, over 8 years ago.  I don't see Huckabee's path to the nomination.

Laura Ingraham agrees: The idea that Mike Huckabee is going to be President of the United States? That's not going to happen


"I like Mike (Huckabee) a lot, I think he’s really strong. But he would probably do better serving conservatism if he had run for one of the two open Senate seats in Arkansas over the last several years. He decided not to do that, and had a great show on Fox. But the idea that Mike Huckabee is going to be President of the United States? I’ll predict that that’s not going to happen”

Car Bomb Kills 3 At U.S. Consulate in Iraq (VIDEO)





Reuters
A car bomb killed three people on Friday outside the U.S. consulate in Erbil, the capital of Iraq's Kurdistan region, a ally of Washington in the war against Islamic State, which claimed the attack.

No U.S. personnel were hurt in the blast, according to the U.S. State Department, which said a "vehicle-borne improvised explosive device" exploded right outside the entrance to the heavily fortified compound.

Kurdistan is an important partner for the U.S.-led coalition in its campaign to "degrade and destroy" the Islamic State group, which overran large parts of Iraq last summer and threatened to reach Erbil.

A Reuters witness heard the blast, which was followed by gunfire and a column of black smoke high above the Ankawa district, a predominantly Christian neighbourhood packed with cafes popular with foreigners.

Iraqi Commander in Ramadi: We've Been Sending ISIS Coordinate Positions To The Joint Command Center, But There Have Been NO Significant Airstrikes


"We need coalition support"

If you think we're not really hitting ISIS with all we could in Iraq, you are right. Just listen to what this commander says.

CNN's Arwa Damon talks to Major Aref al-Janabi on the edge of the city of Ramadi, He says he regularly provides the joint command center with coordinates for ISIS positions, but so far there have been no significant air strikes or reinforcements.

He shows the CNN reporter the ISIS location, he points, right over there, beyond the tree lines. 1 Kilometer away he says, (little over 1/2 mile). But there's been no help from the coalition.

Watch this report-
There is no question, the Iraqis fleeing Ramadi are on their own

Scott Walker Trails Hillary Clinton by Double-Digits in Wisconsin


This is the stuff that gives me a headache. Here you have a proven, strong leader, Governor Scott Walker, who won statewide in Wisconsin 3 times, 2010, 2012, and 2104, in a head-to-head against Hillary Clinton, a calculating power-hungry deceiver who is a bigger phony than her husband. And he's trailing her in his home state by 12 points. I just don't get it.


latimes
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who has enjoyed several months of good news in his prospective quest for the Republican presidential nomination, hit a bump Thursday with a new poll showing a sharp drop in his popularity at home..

Walker's job approval has fallen to 41%, with 56% disapproving, according to the latest Marquette Law School poll, which has been Wisconsin's leading survey. That's the lowest approval figure for Walker in several years of Marquette's surveys.


The one piece of good news for Walker, who has not officially declared his candidacy, is that he has a healthy early lead over other Republican hopefuls in the state's presidential primary. Walker is the first choice of 40% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents, the survey showed, followed by Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky at 10% and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush at 8%.

Clinton had support of 58% of Democrats and independents who lean Democratic, followed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts at 14% and Vice President Joe Biden at 12%. Two Democrats who have indicated they might run against Clinton, former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley and former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb, each had 1%.

In a head-to-head contest, Clinton beat Walker, 52% to 40%.



 

ESPN Reporter Britt McHenry Suspended After Berating Parking Attendant in Leaked Video



Total temper tantrum. ESPN reporter Britt McHenry was suspended by the network on Thursday, April 16, after a video of her berating a parking attendant was leaked online.

The clip, posted to LiveLeak on Thursday, shows a disgruntled McHenry waiting to retrieve her car from an Arlington, Va., compound after it was towed. The scene takes an ugly turn when the reporter calls out the staffer's looks, education, and socioeconomic status.

“I'm in the news, sweetheart," the D.C. sports reporter says menacingly to the employee. "I will f--king sue this place."
