    While speaking at a UN meeting in Switzerland, Mexico’s Foreign Minister said it was as easy to buy a gun in the U.S. as it is to purchase a “liter of milk or a box cereal.” Foreign Minister Claudia Ruiz Massieu made the remarks to the Second Conference of States Parties to the Arms Trade Treaty of the United Nations in Geneva on Monday. She advocated for greater controls by each government on the transfer of arms as well as increased accountability. In her speech, she held that Mexico is a peaceful nation committed to an effective, realistic and sensible...

The hand grenade was a common weapon in Israel during the Crusader era, which began in the 11th century and lasted until the 13th century, according to the Israel Antiquities Authority. Grenades were also used 12th and 13th century Ayyubid period and the Mamluk era, which ran from the 13th to the 16th century, experts say.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, a Democrat whose daughter relies on EpiPen, urged the Senate Judiciary Committee to investigate the price increase of the medication, calling it "unjustified."

    Five states and a group of religiously-affiliated hospitals and physicians are suing the Obama administration over a federal mandate that forces doctors to perform gender transition procedures on adults and children against their medical judgment. The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in a Texas federal court, attempts to roll back a rule imposed by the Department of Health and Human Services in May that expanded the interpretation of “sex” under the Affordable Care Act to include “gender identity.” In doing so, the Obama administration added transgender people to the list of protected classes under the Affordable Care Act, which states that individuals...

    Under a revamped Obama administration program intended to encourage greater cooperation from local law enforcement agencies in helping deport illegal immigrants who the government considers “a danger” to public safety, fewer people are being taken into custody for eventual removal from the country. In November 2014, the administration introduced the Priority Enforcement Program (PEP), a less demanding version of a previous system that had been accused of violating immigrants’ civil rights, and did not differentiate between low-level and serious offenders. The old program, called Secure Communities, influenced a number of local jurisdictions — known as “sanctuary cities” — to not...

    The media and much of the Republican establishment have caught on to only part of a story about a shady deal that the Obama administration made with the Islamic Republic of Iran, a deal that took a rather labyrinthine and bizarre form. What they are talking about is bad enough, which involves paying a ransom for hostages, opening up Americans to kidnappings and imprisonment whenever they travel abroad. The part of the story that they are missing, however, is that what the administration did was highly illegal, according to statutes we still have on our books. On August 3rd, a...

    Earlier this month, an outbreak of anthrax in northern Russia caused the death of a 12-year-old boy and his grandmother and put 90 people in the hospital. These deadly spores – which had not been seen in the Arctic since 1941 – also spread to 2,300 caribou. Russian troops trained in biological warfare were dispatched to the Yamalo-Nenets region to evacuate hundreds of the indigenous, nomadic people and quarantine the disease. Americans are likely to associate anthrax with the mysterious white powder that was mailed to news media and US Senate offices in the weeks following 11 September 2001....

Like Clinton, Trump has released minimal information, most notably in the form of a December 2015 letter of a few paragraphs from his personal physician, a gastroenterologist, that described his blood pressure and lab results as "astonishingly excellent" while suggesting a President Trump would be the "healthiest individual ever elected."

    Full Title HuffPo’s Stein: Clinton Foundation ‘Definitely’ Needs To Be Shut Down, It Did Influence Foreign Policy Because Donors Got Access On Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Huffington Post Senior Politics Editor Sam Stein stated that the Clinton Foundation “definitely” needs to be shut down or transferred to another foundation because there’s too much “ethical murkiness” and that the foundation did influence US foreign policy because donors to it gained access. Stein said, “[T]hey definitely need to shut this thing down or transfer it to the — to some other foundation. … I mean, can you imagine, the people...

    Donald Trump has a 2-point lead over Hillary Clinton in the battleground state of Florida, a new poll finds. A new Florida Atlantic University survey released on Wednesday shows the Republican presidential nominee leading his Democratic counterpart 43 percent to 41 percent, which is within the survey’s margin of error. Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson captures 8 percent, and 5 percent are undecided. This is the first poll showing Trump leading Clinton in the Sunshine State since early July, according to RealClearPolitics polling....

    Hillary Clinton’s national finance director has emerged in newly released emails as what one watchdog called the “middle” man between her State Department and family foundation, sharing donor information with a top Clinton confidante when he was working at the foundation. Dennis Cheng, before joining the campaign, worked for over three years as the foundation’s director of development and before that as deputy chief of protocol in Clinton’s State Department.

    Acres of shiny new Chevrolet Camaros temporarily parked outside a Lansing auto plant: temporarily because they’re being snapped up by customers almost as fast as the state-of-the-art facility can ship them out. The image may sum up the evidence assembled in a new study from the respected Fraser Institute in Canada. Called “Ontario Versus Michigan: Lessons from the Wolverine State,” the report examines how the neighboring state and province have done economically before and after the dramatic business climate changes enacted in Michigan beginning in 2011. A state economic resurgence has followed in the wake of the reforms, which included...

    AUSTIN, TX (KXAN) — Donald Trump’s campaign stop in Austin will come with a big price tag. Austin police officers along with Travis County Sheriff’s Deputies helped direct traffic and provided security. Travis County’s motorcycle unit escorted Trump from one location to the next. As far as how many APD officers were used, a spokesperson says that information can’t be released just yet, because of safety concerns given how long Trump was in town. Republican Texas Congressman Lamar Smith says security during these campaign stops is vital. “We want to protect them, we want to make sure their lives aren’t...

    You know those polls where they ask people if the country is heading in the right direction? One problem with that question is that it lacks context or detail. What makes us say yes or no? ItÂ’s generally a gut reaction that often has little to do with any actual evidence.And letÂ’s face it. ItÂ’s ridiculous to assume that everything is going one way or the other. At any given time, some things are going well, and others arenÂ’t.Besides, not everything is of equal weight. Think of the various warnings you get from the dashboard of your car. Needing to...

    Puzzled — and upset. That’s how some women working in the Islamic fashion industry view the furor in France over burkinis, the body-concealing swimsuit that has been banned in a growing number of seaside towns. “I am quite upset to say the least. Wearing a burkini is not a political statement, rather a choice of dress,” said Rabia Zargarpur, a Dubai-based designer who markets her Rabia Z label of so-called modest fashions online. “For Muslim women, burkinis are a symbol of liberation, not repression. Muslim women who were uncomfortable or unable to swim in mixed pools or beaches are now...

    Republican presidential candidate continued to appeal to minority voters by promising them they won't 'get shot' if he is elected president, as he prepares to meet with minorities at Trump Tower in New York. Speaking to a few thousand people in Tampa Wednesday, Trump called African Americans 'great people' and promised to address their concerns by addressing failing schools and lost jobs. 'To the African American voter – great people. To the Hispanic voter who have been absolutely treated terribly, I say: What do you have to lose? What?' Trump said. 'I will fix it. I’ll be able to make...
