N.C. Gov. Pat McCrory makes remarks during an interview at the governor’s mansion in Raleigh, N.C., on April 12, 2016. North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory continues to defend the controversial “bathroom bill” he signed into law last month – rousing anger and boycotts by LGBT activists. In an appearance on “The Kelly File” Thursday night, the much-maligned governor argued that the primary purpose of House Bill 2 (HB2) is to protect the privacy of children in locker rooms, showers and bathrooms.
It was all about the quarterbacks before Laremy Tunsil's bizarre tumble down the board at the NFL draft.

|The GOP has split into Trump and Ryan wings||Suspended Marlin Dee Gordon says he unknowingly took PEDs (Yahoo Sports)|
The day after Donald Trump swept five primaries this week and tightened his grip on the Republican nomination for president, both he and the other most prominent Republican politician in the country were speaking the language of populism. “We’re going to get rid of these politicians,” Trump said in his opening remarks during an hourlong appearance on Fox News on Wednesday in which Greta Van Susteren and a studio audience in Indianapolis lavished him with praise, sometimes in the form of questions. House Speaker Paul D. Ryan, R-Wis., sounded a similar note.
Reigning NL batting champion Dee Gordon of the Miami Marlins says he unknowingly took the performance-enhancing drugs that led to his 80-game suspension, but he'll accept the penalty.

MLB said Gordon tested positive for exogenous testosterone and clostebol.

Former US House speaker John Boehner has let fly with a stunning critique of fellow Republican and 2016 presidential hopeful Ted Cruz, labeling him the devil incarnate. "Lucifer in the flesh" is how the ever-blunt Republican heavyweight -- who stepped down as speaker last year -- described the Texas senator, who is struggling to block billionaire Donald Trump's march to the Republican presidential nomination, according to the Stanford Daily newspaper. "I have Democrat friends and Republican friends," Boehner said.
Mississippi will investigate former offensive lineman Laremy Tunsil's comments that he accepted money from a member of the football staff while playing at the school. After Tunsil was selected 13th overall Thursday night in the NFL draft by the Miami Dolphins, he initially denied taking money while at Ole Miss. The question arose after a post on his Instagram showed an alleged text message exchange between the offensive lineman and an Ole Miss football staff member that included Tunsil's request for money for bills.

Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One
Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nation’s military, the mind’s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagon’s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.
Living Wages Are A Global Problem
The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed.

In a Five to Four Decision, Voting Just Got Harder
In a five to four decision along party lines, the Supreme Court ruled on the controversial Shelby County v. Holder case.

Coup Or Civil War In Egypt
The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
