  • FOX News Starting to Change?

    July 29, 2016 | Vanity
    Now that FOX News is under a new, more liberal management, has it begun to show signs of a drift in reporting. For the second consecutive day, Carl Cameron has been far too critical of Donald Trump. DT said on one occasion that he didn't really know Putin. On another occasion DT said they met briefly in the 60 minutes green room. Cameron makes this a near scandal saying that it's a discrepancy that the Trump team simply must clarify. This is such a petty thing; I expect more from FOX News.

    Chelsea Manning may face charges relating to a suicide attempt this year, which could lead to indefinite solitary confinement or transferral to a maximum-security facility, according to a civil rights group. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) announced on Thursday that Manning, who is serving a 35-year sentence in military custody for leaking state secrets to the whistleblowing site WikiLeaks, was under investigation for three charges related to her 5 July suicide attempt: “resisting the force cell move team”, “prohibited property”, and “conduct which threatens”. Manning confirmed through her lawyers in July that she was receiving medical care after having...

    When is Hillary Clinton going to hold that long-awaited news conference — the first of 2016? Whenever she feels like it. This has always been true, of course. The media can't force her into one. But the Democratic presidential nominee's campaign hasn't been quite so blunt about it. Until now. "We'll have a press conference when we want to have a press conference," Clinton pollster Joel Benenson said on ABC News on Thursday evening.

    Well, Hillary Clinton took the stage after four days of Democratic triumph — the party staged what was even to these conservative eyes and ears the best, tightest, most interesting convention of our time — and pretty much stunk up the joint. Her speech was a Jell-O mold of a sort my Aunt Millie used to make — blandly gelatinous in flavor and texture with little pieces of boilerplate left-liberal policy suspended in it like peach chunks from a three-week-old can. I can’t think of another one of these events when the presidential candidate’s acceptance address ended up solidly in...

    In 2007, India began an official tender process for 126 multi-role, medium-range combat aircraft (MMRCA) with Paris-based Dassault at a cost of about $11 billion. It was the world’s largest fighter jet deal at the time. Since then the deal has unraveled. Negotiations stalled over price and quality and, ultimately, Prime Minister Narendra Modi opted to purchase only 36 “ready to fly” aircraft from Dassault. Even this more modest version of deal has yet to fully fructify. Since the original bid, the Modi government has added a “made in India” component as part of all future acquisitions. Amidst the French...

Windshields and house windows smashed, roads flooded with rain and hailstones, police were asking everyone to stay indoors. I live on the southwest side of town and was aware of the violence of the storms, but didn't get much here.

    A US aircraft carrying out an observation flight over Russia was forced to make an emergency landing at Khabarovsk's airport due to an apparent landing gear malfunction. The aircraft took off from Ulan-Ude, a city to the east of Lake Baikal, and was heading to the Russian city of Yakutsk. However, one of the plane’s landing gears had apparently malfunctioned and failed to retract after takeoff, so the crew decided to make a forced landing in Khabarovsk, RIA Novosti reports. The Khabarovsk airport administration also confirmed that an aircraft with a stuck landing gear made an unscheduled landing there. "A...

Hillary Clinton talks about unity, about E Pluribus Unum, but her globalist agenda denies American citizens the protections to which they are all entitled – tearing us apart. Her radical amnesty plan will take jobs, resources and benefits from the most vulnerable citizens of the United States and give them to the citizens of other countries.

The White House said earlier the FBI had not disclosed any information about who was behind the hack.

The emails were released by the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks on the eve of...

    Donald Trump has gotten a significant boost from his party’s nominating convention last week; now, Hillary Clinton will try for her own. Clinton and her supporters won’t know for several days how much Thursday’s acceptance speech will improve her standing with voters — polls lag behind the events they measure because gathering accurate data takes time. In Trump’s case, the post-convention bounce started to show up in a significant way on Sunday in the USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times Daybreak tracking poll of the presidential race. The boost continued to build for several days and Trump now holds a 7-percentage-point lead,...
