    Since Hillary Clinton’s unexpected loss to Donald Trump, her donors have strategized with Democratic leadership about how to revive the failing party. Billionaire George Soros held a closed door conference with wealthy donors in November 2016 that addressed how to “take back power” and was attended by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. On the weekend of Trump’s inauguration, David Brock hosted a retreat for the most prolific Democratic donors to figure out how to “kick Donald Trump’s a--.” On July 15, Page Six reported that Sen. Kamala Harris, a potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, met with top Clinton donors in the Hamptons. Many figures in Clinton’s inner circle attended, including Clinton’s...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on Sen. John McCain as he recovers from surgery (all times local): 6:15 p.m. Sen. John McCain’s best pal in the Senate says he’s “sounding strong” after surgery to remove a blood clot above his eye. Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina tells reporters that he has spoken to McCain, who is recuperating at his home in Arizona. Graham says “it looks like everything is going to be A-OK.” He says McCain needs to wait a week before returning to Washington because doctors won’t allow him to board an airplane. Graham says McCain “wants...

    Elliott was one of 20 to 30 members of the motorcycle group, Ruthless Ryderz, who were riding on the northbound 15 Freeway near Weirick Road just before 10 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol. The group was causing traffic woes on the freeway as members slowed and blocked motorists so that riders “could perform illegal stunts on the freeway,” CHP Sgt. Nathan Baer said in a statement. As the group slowed traffic for their stunt show, Elliott stood up onto the seat of his 2014 Kawasaki motorcycle, the sergeant said. Elliott, who was not holding onto the handlebars, lost...

    ABC News ^ | 17 July 2017
    The European Union is allowing members to restrict sales of inflatable boats and outboard motors to Libya in an effort to stop dangerous migrant smuggling across the Mediterranean. EU foreign ministers agreed Monday to allow member countries to ban such export or supply "where there are reasonable grounds to believe that they will be used by people smugglers and human traffickers." A statement said the measure will also apply to boats and motors transiting through the EU, but not to fishermen or others with legitimate need for them. The foreign ministers also agreed to extend a border aid mission in...

    Vatican gay sex stings are symptoms of the homoheresy The scandal of homosexual clerics preying on young males and the latest gay sex stings in the Vatican are but symptoms of the homoheresy. The depraved lifestyle of gay priests expresses their rejection of Church teaching on the intrinsic evil of homosexual relations. In 2007, Newsweek ran a story by Vaticanista Ed Pentin on Msgr. Tommaso Stenico, videotaped soliciting a male youth in Rome for sex. The young man related telling the monsignor he was "about to commit something with me that is a sin in the eyes of God." The...

    BUCKHORN , ONTARIO — Outside Dave and Ann Bowen’s cottage at Six Foot Bay, Buckhorn Lake shimmers in the early morning sunlight. It has rained so hard in the past four days that some of the docks — in front of each of the 16 cottages that line the shore — are immersed. The Bowens have just finished celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday alongside their adult children and nine grandchildren — all spread out between three adjacent cottages. Dave is a recently retired school teacher and principal, and Ann is a recently retired nurse. Although they love their country deeply, they...

    The neocons, who have influenced U.S. foreign policy since the 1980s, inflicting grave damage on U.S. interests and the world, are reinventing themselves as soldiers in the anti-Trump #Resistance In these summer dog days of the Trump presidency, good news is hard to come by, but in late June it was reported that the successor institution to William Kristol’s Project for a New American Century, the Foreign Policy Initiative (FPI), was shutting its doors for good. FPI was founded in 2009 to give the displaced neocons who had worked for President George W. Bush a platform from which to endlessly...

    RUSH: We just told you about Jody Allard, the feminist writer who compares her own sons to rapists. They’re teenagers. She says they’re not safe because they have penises, and because they have penises they are prone to rape women, and she writes about them this way. And they’ve gotten old enough now that they’re able to find out that she’s writing this way about them, and they don’t like their mother. And she thinks that’s their problem. Washington Post yesterday, Sunday edition, Kristine Phillips, headline: “Why These Professors Are Warning Against Promoting the Work of Straight, White Men.” So...

    ---SNIP--- It’s too easy for the drugs to reach their ultimate destination. LegitScript, a digital consulting company conducted an experiment in which it made 29 orders of synthetic opioids to be sent to its office in the United States. None of the test deliveries were seized by authorities. The Postal Service should follow the lead of private mail carriers handling overseas packages by electronically tracking basic information, including the sender’s name, address, and contents of the package. That would provide enough information to help spot suspect mail so U.S. Customs agents wouldn’t have to sift through vats of packages manually.

    Walmart was apologizing on Monday after an appalling description of a product by a third-party vendor made its way onto the retail giant’s website. The retailer was slammed early Monday after the color of a netting weave cap — used as a protective layer between a person’s hair and sewn-in hair extensions — on its site was described as the color “N— Brown.” “Hey @Walmart what are you doing,” Twitter user Kwani Lunis tweeted with a screenshot of the problematic product listing. New York Times best-selling author Roxane Gay condemned the retail chain, tweeting that dropping the N-bomb on their...

    Poor baby Charlie Gard and his parents are caught in the old battle between compassionless medical traditionalists who are satisfied with existing medical knowledge and the experimentalists who are trying to advance medical knowledge to reduce the number of disorders that cannot be successfully treated. Traditionalists who don't know how to treat disorders tend to deny the possibility that patients like Charlie whom they don't know how to treat can be treated by anyone. They are like selfish little children who don't want to let other children play with toys they aren't playing with at the time. Traditionalists would rather...

    The Donald Trump administration is pushing Congress for the authority to build new “temporary” facilities in Iraq and Syria as part of the US-led campaign against the Islamic State. In a policy statement released Tuesday night, the White House argues that US troops are hamstrung by legal restrictions on their ability to expand US military infrastructure “in both Iraq and Syria.” The administration wants lawmakers to extend existing authorities that only cover the “repair and renovation” of facilities to also encompass “temporary intermediate staging facilities, ammunition supply points, and assembly areas that have adequate force protection.” “These facilities, supply points,...
