INC. 217 W COTA ST SHELTON WA 98582263 ~,~,~*i THE iTALIAN-AMERICAN VOICE OF MASSACHUSETTS m __1 (Formerly LA GAZZETTA del MASSACHUSETTS) VOL. 120 - NO. 17 BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, APRIL 22, 2016 $.35 A COPY % by Sal Gi~i Rachel Maddow Playing Bad Game of Class Warfare I rarely watch MSNBC, and I almost never listen to that "mad cow," but Rachel Maddow was taking on the New York Republican Party bash at the Grand Hyatt in midtown Manhattan on April 15~. Maddow just kept bashing NY GOP State Chairman Ed Cox, showing old clips of his White House wedding to Tricia Nixon years ago. When she wasn't class bashing, she was poking fun at President Nixon during Watergate. What any of this has to do with this year's campaign evaded me. Her snickering was insulting. It demeans her, and makes me glad I don't listen to her trash-talk on a regular basis. You Can't Say the Word "Gestapo" Anymore? The speech police at CNN just took on two top Trump hires. One for using the term "gestapo" in describing the Cruz campaign's bullying tactics and the other for not walking back from that word. Meanwhile, Democrats can compare Donald Trump's campaign to Mussolini and Hitler. Right here in the Bay State, U.S. Rep. Seth Moulton reportedly linked Trump to Hitler and the liberal media let Moulton off scot-free over that insulting comparison. What gives here? Camus Once Said ... "Nobody realizes that some people expend tremen- : dous energy merely to be normal." Case in point, wasn't Camus thinking about guys like Gov. John Kasich who was caught campaigning in New York and eating a pizza with a fork? Most politicians are the furthest thing from normal. They go off script and their brains blow up at many of those TV debates we all have endured.

His kind of town, New York is not Ted Cruz's kind of town or state. ~ Howie Carr Donald Trump apparently owns New York and the results of the New York primary made that a reality on Tuesday, April 19th. When all the votes were counted, it was Trump on top with 60 percent of the vote, Ohio Gov. John Kasich a distant second with 25 percent, and Ted Cruz at the bottom with 15 percent of the vote. No wonder Ted had already moved on to Pennsylvania and next week's primaries. After Trump's New York vic- tory, it is now clear that Ted Cruz can only win the nomina- tion on the second ballot, and that appears to be his strategy of late. Only Trump can win on the first ballot. As for Kasich, he is hanging in there only to STOP TRUMP. Kasich has won one state, his own, Ohio. He's got a few delegates here or there, but his only hope appears to be a thirtt'ballot, or maybe fourth or dream, but it's the American pipe dream to be exact. When it comes to Hillary Clinton and the Democrats, the fake New Yorker beat the real New Yorker Bernie Sanders. She received 58 percent of the votes to Bernie's 42 percent. Not a good showing for a guy from Brooklyn, is it? Next week, there are more primaries. Connecticut, Dela- ware, Maryland, Pennsylva- nia and Rhode Island. Trump Country in the GOP. Not Ted's. And if Kasich flounders again, I wouldn't be surprised. As far as the Democrats go, Hillary could finish off Bernie and end ~the Bern" next week. More and more, it appears that next November the Ameri- can people will probably be facing Donald Trump versus Hillary Clinton. While Ted Cruz and the Democrats say it will be a Democratic landslide; I have fifth. He is living the American not written offTrump. He wasn't even supposed to be in this race at this point according to all the experts, but here he is. I remember Lyndon Johnson versus Barry Goldwater back when I was 16 years old. This isn't 1964. Donald Trump's campaign is much smarter than Goldwater's camp 52 years ago. I think the 2016 Presidential Campaign will actually be good for America. We are at the cor- ner of prosperity and disaster. We are at a tipping point when it comes to our values and cul- ture, We need to vote this year like never before. We cannot be sunshine patriots anymore. Government is our business. Either we run it or it runs us. Our choice is clear. Either we are a government that values liberty or we are a government that just wants free stuff. Vote on Election Day, Tues- day, November 8th. It could be the most ~mportant vote of your life.
