    Silicon Valley certainly loves Hillary Clinton. And why wouldn’t it? They can get all of the government contracts, special privileges and any other cronyist idea you can think of. According to the latest numbers from the Wall Street Journal, donations from Big Tech total $30.7 million through June 2016. With so many tech executives hosting political fundraisers for Clinton, that number will likely skyrocket in the coming months ahead of the November election.

    If Republican nominee and real estate billionaire mogul Donald Trump pulls out an impossible victory against Hillary Clinton in November then prepare yourself for a global recession. This is the latest warning from Citigroup. The financial institution believes that markets would enter into chaos and the global economy would collapse because of policy uncertainty. Here is what Citi Chief Economist Willem Buiter opines (courtesy of Bloomberg): “A Trump victory in particular could prolong and perhaps exacerbate policy uncertainty and deliver a shock (though perhaps short-lived) to financial markets. Tightening financial conditions and further rises in uncertainty could trigger a significant...

    The Surprising Reason Why More Americans Are Not Going To ChurchThe standard narrative of American religious decline goes something like this: A few hundred years ago, European and American intellectuals began doubting the validity of God as an explanatory mechanism for natural life. As science became a more widely accepted method for investigating and understanding the physical world, religion became a less viable way of thinking—not just about medicine and mechanics, but also culture and politics and economics and every other sphere of public life. As the United States became more secular, people slowly began drifting away from faith.Of course,...

    Hillary Clinton has been taking heat for her relationship with the Clinton Foundation. Did individuals and firms making large donations to the Foundation, or paying large speaking or consulting fees to Bill Clinton, get preferred access to Ms. Clinton as Secretary of State? Is there a revolving door between the Clinton campaign and the FoundationÂ’s fundraising staff? Are these relationships the subject of the emails she deleted from her private server? These questions point to a more basic issue about the role of money in politics. What, exactly, do large corporations get in exchange for their payments to candidates and...

    The Forbes list of the world’s richest actresses provides a heaven-sent opportunity to slaver over photos of beautiful women and very large sums of money: solemnly recorded figures that can really be no more than intelligent guesswork. In pretty much the same spirit, Forbes regularly provides an enjoyable ranking of the richest fictional people, from Jay Gatsby to Smaug, complete with estimated dollar amounts. This year, Jennifer Lawrence is top of the actress list, with a supposed pre-tax income of $46m. Melissa McCarthy comes in second with a putative $33m and Scarlett Johansson gets bronze with what could plausibly be...

    Rep. Pete King shot back on Sunday. "Colin Kaepernick's refusal to stand for the national anthem is entirely wrong," King, a Republican Representative from the second district, said in an email statement. "It is also an indicator of how low our cultural standards have been degraded that anyone is actually supporting this behavior. ". . . Having an NFL quarterback insult our flag by refusing to stand during the playing of the 'Star Spangled Banner,' adds neither honesty nor intelligence to that debate." King added Kaepernick's claims of black oppression are overstated and, more controversially, self-inflicted. "Kaepernick charges that America...

Julio Macias Gonzalez started having convulsions at the dinner table with his family in Mexico City after spending an evening with his girlfriend. Paramedics were dispatched to the scene but the 17-year-old could not be saved.

    As I watch Hillary Clinton wish away the fallout of the Clinton Foundation’s unseemly ties with the State Department during her tenure as Secretary of State, I can’t help but think that her self-inflicted wound just bleeds and bleeds and bleeds. Every day that she fails to seriously address the rotten consequences of her poor judgment, Clinton further erodes the already lacking public trust in her. By avoiding a sincere display of contrition, she risks her candidacy and the foundation her family built. The numbers on the alleged pay-to-play are damning: as reported by the Associated Press, of 154 non-official...

    FARMING will need to shift towards indoor vertical farms and precision techniques that could make use of drones. Just as important will be the planting of drought-resistant crops and even printing meat to secure food production globally. This is according to Ernst Janovsky, senior agricultural economist at Absa, who emphasised that technology will need to be incorporated into farming practices in order to keep up with costs and supply. Speaking at an Absa Agribusiness roundtable in Centurion on Tuesday, Janovsky said population growth would create more demand for food, water and land. By 2050, the global population is expected to...

Duterte, who has seen about two thousand people killed since he was elected in May, made the remarks late Friday as he shrugged off the United Nations' concerns over human rights in his country. "Crime against humanity? In the first place, I’d like to be frank with you: are they humans? What is your definition of a human being?" he told soldiers while visiting an army camp, according to transcripts...

    A flag desecration charge was dropped Monday for a man who protested a crude oil pipeline that crosses his property by hanging an American flag upside down at his home, online court records show. Homer Martz, 63, was charged Friday under a state law that makes it illegal to defile, cast contempt upon, satirize or deride a flag. That law, however, was declared unconstitutional by a federal judge in December 2014 and state prosecutors were told not to enforce it. The law, which lawmakers have not removed from the books, says law enforcement officers have a duty "to enforce the...

Albert Breer of MMQB became the latest national reporter to weigh in on Kaepernick Thursday morning. “Colin Kaepernick’s injury history, combined with the heavy injury guarantees in his contract, would be a motivator to put him on ice for the year if the team isn’t sold he’ll rebound in Chip Kelly’s offense,” Breer wrote. “The Redskins pulled something similar last year—they knew Robert Griffin...

Like a Vonnegut satire, we find Venezuela to be a country without food on its grocery store shelves, folks desperately searching for scarce medicine and toilet paper, hundreds of thousands clogging border crossings. And yet, the elected-president-become-dictator just announced — to glorious fanfare and by the supreme generosity of the national government — that the 87 Venezuelan...

Republicans have only won Iowa once since Ronald Reagan – in 2004, when George Bush eked out a win by 10,000 of more than 1.5 million votes. And yet, among the traditional battleground states, Iowa has become perhaps Trump’s best hope of a win.

    Opponents of California's death penalty have been highly successful at thwarting executions since the state resumed executions in 1992 after a 20-year hiatus. Their latest ploy is Proposition 62, which would repeal the death penalty and resentence death row inmates to life without parole. Measure sponsors argue that capital punishment presents the risk of executing an innocent person, but also state that California's death penalty is "simply unworkable." That's a cheeky stand, coming from the corner that has been throwing monkey wrenches into the criminal justice system to subvert death penalty law. Over the years, appellate attorneys have introduced endless...

    A new poll by the Pew Research Center shows that 67 percent of Americans think illegal immigrants are more likely than citizens to commit serious crimes, data that may hearten Donald Trump given the Republican presidential nominee’s tough stance on illegal immigration. The Republican National Convention in Cleveland earlier this summer featured speeches by parents whose children were killed by illegal immigrants. But while two-thirds of respondents nationwide think illegal immigrants are more likely to commit serious crimes, 61 percent oppose building a wall along the U.S-Mexico border, which Trump has endorsed throughout his presidential campaign. A plurality, 45 percent,...

    Persecution on a wide scale basis is knocking at the doorstep of every true believer, and the frequency and intensity of the knocking has exponentially increased. Just 8 years ago, no one was confused about which bathroom to use...and now, you can be expelled from West Virginia University for not properly using the correct invented pronoun to address anyone who is in a state of "transition" (read: Confusion). There has been a swing in the societal pendulum from common sense to delusion, and the argument can be made that the momentum has significantly increased over the course of the past...
