    Ayotte Leads Hassan in InsideSources/NH Journal Poll/Trump Takes 9-Point Lead Over Clinton in Granite State: An InsideSources/NH Journal poll finds that incumbent U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte is gaining momentum in her race against New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan. Ayotte leads Hassan 49 percent to 41.4 percent, with 9.6 percent undecided. Meanwhile, days after officially receiving the Republican nomination in Cleveland, the poll shows businessman Donald Trump leads former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton 47.9 percent to 38.5 percent in New Hampshire, with 13.6 percent undecided. InsideSources tested a negative message for each of the major party’s candidates for Senate. When...
  • Scarborough: Michelle Obama Speech ‘Reminded Me of Reagan’

    Today’s opening segment of Morning Joe was one—long—gush-fest over First Lady Michelle Obama’s speech to the DNC last night. The apotheosis of adulation came from Joe Scarborough, who said that the speech “reminded me of Ronald Reagan.” Scarborough also had an “America love it or leave it” message for those who think our country needs to be made great again: “we are the last best hope for a dying world. If you can’t get behind that message as a Republican or a Democrat, then let me buy you a ticket to another country.” Wonder if Joe offered Michelle a ticket...
  • RNC is right that no Democratic speaker mentioned ISIS on convention's first night

    Night one of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia had barely ended when the Republican National Committee sent a blast email to reporters attacking the Democrats for ignoring the threat of terrorism when speaking at the podium. "61: Number Of Speeches At The DNC Tonight," the Republican National Committee wrote. "0: Mentions Of The Global Terrorist Threat Posed By ISIS." Was the Democratic discussion of ISIS and Islamic terrorism that thin? Basically, yes. It’s worth noting that the first night was not intended to have a specific focus on foreign policy, leaving the Democrats with three days left to discuss...

    PHILADELPHIA — The 2016 Democratic National Convention is underway, and the factual inaccuracies on the first night focused on income, college tuition and something the Republican ticket had said or done. Pennsylvania Sen. Bob Casey said Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump “would cut taxes for the richest Americans at the expense of the middle class.” But all income levels would get some tax relief under Trump’s plan. Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy wrongly claimed that Mike Pence, the GOP vice presidential nominee, “signed a law that would have forced women to hold funerals for fetuses.” The law said aborted or miscarried...

    President Barack Obama signed an executive order in 2010 applying the Hyde Amendment, which bans taxpayer funding of most abortions, to Obamacare. Five years later, the White House referred to the Hyde Amendment while defending taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood. Now, the Democrats’ party platform is calling for repeal of the measure. According to a new poll, Americans are solidly opposed to public funding of abortion, including nearly half of voters who support abortion rights, and at least four out of 10 Democrats.

The 12 female waitresses and male manager had defected en masse from a North Korean-run restaurant in China to South Korea.

    "To obtain an inheritance which is . . . reserved in heaven for you, who are protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time" (1 Pet. 1:4-5). Your eternal inheritance is doubly secure: it is reserved for you, and you are reserved for it. When Peter wrote his first epistle, attitudes toward Christians in the Roman Empire were not at all favorable. Because they would not worship the emperor as a god, or enter into other sinful pagan practices, Christians were looked upon with suspicion and disdain. In addition,...

    “And in your godliness, brotherly kindness . . .” (2 Peter 1:7). Real Christian discipleship will include practical brotherly love. A genuine love for God will invariably lead to a love for others. That’s what Jesus said of the two great commandments (Matt. 22:36-40) that summarize the Ten Commandments. The apostle John also related love for God and love for others: “If someone says, ‘I love God,’ and hates his brother, he is a liar; for the one who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen” (1 John 4:20).

    PHILADELPHIA — Leaked emails show the Democratic National Committee scrambled this spring to conceal the details of a joint fundraising arrangement with Hillary Clinton that funneled money through state Democratic parties. During the three-month period when the DNC was working to spin the situation, state parties kept less than one half of one percent of the $82 million raised through the arrangement — validating concerns raised by campaign finance watchdogs, state party allies and Bernie Sanders supporters. The arrangement, called the Hillary Victory Fund, allowed the Clinton campaign to seek contributions of hundreds of thousands of dollars to attend extravagant...

    "Make America One Again." That was the stated theme of the last night of the Republican National Convention. In the welter of analysis of Donald Trump's acceptance speech, few have commented on it, but it's worth taking it seriously. Liberal commentators have dwelled repeatedly on Trump's "dark" and "dystopian" view of America. Apparently, you're not supposed to think badly of our nation when we have a black Democratic president. This is mostly just partisan spin. The candidate of the out party invariably takes a dim view of the way things are going. Yes, they usually add more uplift than Trump...

Yeni Safak, a Turkish tabloid known as friendly to the increasingly authoritarian regime in Ankara, hit newsstands Monday with a front-page blaring in Turkish “This man led the coup,” alongside a picture of U.S. Army Gen.

You might think that the decision about whether Medarva moves a couple of operating rooms ought to be up to Medarva, and you would be right about that—in theory.In Virginia, however, such decisions require the state's approval, because the state maintains a Certificate of Public Need (COPN) law. Congress forced states to adopt such laws to address problems created by federal cost-plus reimbursement...

It appeared the priest's throat was slit, the source told the Reuters news agency. Two men, both armed with knives, took five hostages in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray in Rouen. Note: Details are still sketchy, but it appears that the four other hostages who witnessed the priest's murder were nuns.

    As many as 1.65 million women in Latin America could be infected with Zika while pregnant, meaning tens of thousands of pregnancies could be at risk, researchers said Monday. It's the first real estimate of just how many actual pregnancies are at real risk, based on birth rates in each country and other factors. Brazil's likely to be the worst affected, the team at the University of Notre Dame and Britain's University of Southampton found. The team calculated the subset of women who get pregnant every year and who go on to have a baby -- many pregnancies end in...

    When it comes to the connection between Islam and violence against non-Muslims, one fact must be embraced: the majority of those in positions of leadership and authority in the West are either liars or fools, or both. No other alternative exists. The reason for this uncharitable assertion is simple: If Islam was once a faraway, exotic religion, today we hear calls for, and see acts of, violence committed in its name—or the name of its deity “Allahu Akbar!”—practically every day. And many of us still have “ears that hear and eyes that see.” It’s no secret: Muslims from all around...

    Who’s your daddy? An unknown hominin species that bred with early human ancestors when they migrated from Africa to Australasia has been identified through genome mapping of living humans. The genome analysis also questions previous findings that modern humans populated Asia in two waves from their origin in Africa, finding instead a common origin for all populations in the Asia-Pacific region, dating back to a single out-of-Africa migration event. Modern humans first left Africa about 60,000 years ago, with some heading west towards Europe, and others flowing east into the Asia-Pacific region. Previous research looking at the genomes of people...

    You won't need an astrologer to see the future if Hillary Clinton becomes president. You can just take the anger, backstabbing and blame-gaming at the Democratic Convention and repeat - for four years. Another email scandal, another FBI investigation, all laced with wild conspiracy theories about Russian hackers helping Donald Trump and with a victim card always at the ready. Hillary played one early, telling "60 Minutes" that she's widely distrusted only because lots and lots of bad people say untrue things about her. Where to begin with that one? Ah, it's the Clintons, and only the details are new,...
