    Gateway Pundit ^ | Aug 27th, 2016 9:48 am | Jim Hoft
    Donald Trump is up 4 points on Hillary Clinton is the latest Mason-Dixon Florida poll. And, Donald Trump leads Hillary by 14 points with independent voters. Conservative Treehouse reported: A non-media poll by Mason Dixon of central Florida Voters (I-4 Corridor) finds Donald Trump leading overall: 46% Trump to 42% for Clinton. More interestingly, and many would say more importantly, Donald Trump is leading Hillary Clinton by 14 points with independent voters: Trump 44%, Clinton 30% This tracks with the previous outline we shared discussing voter registration, voter intent, voter engagement, and voter analysis within Florida. All of the previous...
  • Trump's Weirdo Doctor Uses Windows XP, Which Could Be a Violation of HIPAA

    NBC News has a new article about Donald Trump’s doctor of 35 years, Dr. Harold Bornstein—the guy who claimed that Trump, if elected, would be “the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.” The dude looks like a character from a bad 70s porno flick, but Deadspin’s Tim Burke spotted something weirder: Dr. Bornstein is using Windows XP. Why does it matter if Dr. Bornstein is using an outdated operating system? Well, it could be a violation of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Microsoft stopped supporting Windows XP back in 2014 and HIPAA requires doctors to make...

    This week I am going to do something unusual. I am going to enter into a conversation with another columnist. Doing so was not so unusual a few decades back. Bill Buckley and James Jackson Kilpatrick did it when provoked and it was always interesting. Yet today a columnist is a godlike figure. Today’s columnist communicates solely with Olympus, and the result is often a bit tedious. I propose to address the New York Post’s Michael Goodwin and congratulate him on noting that mainstream media (MSM) have passed yet another milepost in their decline. Michael wrote in his column this...

    Claressa Shields made history in Rio as the first U.S. boxer to win back-to-back gold medals. But while the major media outlets praised her historic win, they forgot about her most important personal win. On Monday, the 21-year-old credited God for her success on Good Morning America after ABC anchor Amy Robach referenced her “difficult childhood.” How Shields’ past was difficult, Robach didn’t say. But it’s a story well worth telling. Shields grew up in Flint, Michigan with a father in jail and a mother with drug problems and male “acquaintances” who, Shields said, raped and sexually molested her. Her...

    And again he says, “Here am I, and the children God has given me.” Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil—and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death. For surely it is not angels he helps, but Abraham’s descendants. For this reason he had to be made like his brothers in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service...

    The relationship between the Clinton Foundation and her State Department is proving to be a significant problem for Hillary Clinton The Clinton family’s history of pay-for-play while Hillary was secretary of state is blatant, willful, and indisputable. The latest chapter in the Clintons’ quid pro quo scheme was brought to light by the Associated Press. But many in the media have quickly moved past this story, even insisting that the AP was cherry-picking their data to make Mrs. Clinton look bad. Some news organizations, such as CNN, reported the latest revelations as being pounced on by the Trump campaign—rather than...

    Army General. Roberts Abrams said Wednesday that there was no outside influence regarding his decision to send accused deserter Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s case to a general court-martial. Bergdahl’s lawyers believed that the general was influenced by comments made by Sen. John McCain and Donald Trump. Gen. Abrams, head of Army Forces Command at Fort Bragg decided to forward the case to a general court-martial rather than a lower-level tribunal. Bergdahl faces charges of desertion and misbehavior before the enemy, the latter charge carrying up to a life sentence. Bergdahl, 30, of Hailey, Idaho walked off his post in Afghanistan in...

    Trump wants her to come out and fight because that’s when she becomes vulnerable. Now, get ready for the counter-punch With her ‘alt-right’ conspiracy speech in Reno, Hillary Clinton has served notice she’s ditching her ‘run-out-the-clock’ strategy’ in favor of smearing Donald Trump and his core of ‘radical’ followers as dark, dangerous bigots. The question is why the change in tactics. Just this week, the Politico quoted Clinton insiders as saying “they can ride out” the latest email and Clinton Foundation controversy by running out the clock until the election. They see the poll numbers and have decided it’s over....

    Facebook has fired its Trending News team, responsible for curating the social media network’s “Trending News” list, after Breitbart Tech began to reveal their progressive biases last month. The team is set to be replaced by a team of engineers managing an algorithm. Facebook’s Trending News feature is supposed to present users with the most popular news topics being discussed across the platform. But a Gizmodo exposé in May revealed that Trending News operated much like a traditional newsroom, with a team of “curators” selecting stories they considered newsworthy. It was later revealed that the team artificially injected stories that...

    Forty-five years to the month after making its New England debut, pioneering heavy metal band Black Sabbath took to the stage at the Xfinity Center in Mansfield to bid the road farewell. From the perfect weather to a deep-cut-rich set list, it was a best-case concert scenario that highlighted the massive place in musical culture the band has occupied for the better part of five decades. The audience ranged in age from fired-up retirees to one particularly enthusiastic preschooler in hot-pink ear protection. Families galore sang along with every word, and more than a few friendships on display predated the...

    There seems to be sufficient evidence that anyone contributing substantially to the Clinton Foundation believes or believed that there was a 'pay for play' element to the donation. There seems to be equally sufficient evidence that Donald Trump has admitted that he made his political contributions over decades to insure that he had access to politicians where he was 'paying to play'. A great pair to draw to: alleged payee and alleged payor. Let's put the 'pay to play' issue aside for a moment and focus on the potential nightmare that the Clinton Foundation needs to avoid. That nightmare is...

Just above the horizon, Venus and Jupiter will appear so close to each other that, from some locations, the two planets will almost seem to touch. The next time Venus and Jupiter will get this close will be in November 2065. In addition to keeping a look out for this planetary conjunction, look higher up in the sky to see three other planets on parade: Saturn, Mercury and Mars.

    Davidson said advertisers and political campaigns can also search and sort based on demographics and geography. In searching the city of Seattle, for example, Facebook estimates a potential reach of more than 800,000 likely, liberal leaning individuals, compared to more than 50,000 likely conservatives. Davidson explained campaigns are primarily focused on targeting “persuadable voters,” who are likely to be found in the moderate or basic liberal or conservative groupings, as opposed to the extreme categories on either side. Targeting can then be further narrowed based on profile information such as age, gender, even estimated income and lifestyle. “If you have...

    It has been 265 days since the Democrat Party presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, held a news conference. This type of press stonewalling is unprecedented for a presidential candidate in modern American political history. The American people have a right to know where presidential candidates stand on important issues and how they respond to various controversies. While her GOP opponent, Donald Trump, has held numerous and extensive news conferences in recent months, Hillary Clinton has employed a hide and go seek strategy with the press. Sadly, she has refused to engage the national news media in an open and honest manner...

    For starters, to call a planet “Earth-like” generally means that it is similar in composition to Earth. This is where the term “terrestrial” really comes into play, as it refers to a rocky planet that is composed primarily of silicate rock and metals which are differentiated between a metal core and a silicate mantle and crust. ... What this does not mean, at least not automatically, is that the planet is habitable in the way Earth is. Simply being terrestrial in nature is not an indication that the planet has a suitable atmosphere or a warm enough climate to support...

As they held up these signs, hordes of protesters around them spit, swore and physically pushed Trump supporters -- including women and children – as they walked in and out of the event. The irony is that these protestors that are so quick to cast...

Expansion of ports off China, construction of luxury resorts off Dubai or land reclamation in the Netherlands were among causes of coastal expansion, according to a study by Dutch research group Deltares. Using satellite data with Google Earth, Deltares said coastal regions had gained a net 13,565 square kilometers (5,237 square miles) of land since 1985, roughly the size of Jamaica or the U.S. state of Connecticut.

Kaepernick did not stand for the national anthem before the 49ers preseason game at Levi's Stadium, although the move went unnoticed by most at the time. ProFootballTalk.com reported the story more than an hour after the game, and no reporters asked Kaepernick about it following the 49ers 21-10 loss to the Packers.But Kaepernick's action prompted the 49ers to issue a statement acknowledging that he sat during the anthem, and defending...

A democracy can endure deflation policies for only so long. The attrition has wasted the French centre-right and the centre-left by turns, and now threatens the Fifth Republic itself. The maturing crisis has echoes of 1936, when the French people tired of 'deflation decrees' and turned to the once unthinkable Front Populaire, smashing what remained of the Gold Standard. Former Gaulliste president Nicolas Sarkozy has caught the headlines this week, launching a come-back bid...

Most of those details are buried in the 30,000 deleted emails which are most likely hacked by some very dangerous people both foreign and domestic. When you hear of a hacking every day you know someone was trolling the Secretary of State’s home account. Grandma Clinton most likely had no idea how to send an email off her...

    Some people in the United States have already filed their 2015 income tax returns — not because they are super-law-abiding, but because they want to get a check from Uncle Sam in the mail. Some savvy illegal aliens, since they can get substantial tax breaks, will have filed by now. The first day that IRS accepted returns was January 19 this year — the deadline is two and a half months away, the usual April 15. This year there is yet another tax break for illegals in the tax system. Unlike citizen and green card workers who are not participating...

    Responses come in to Supreme Court's decision to block voters' opinion on remapping SPRINGFIELD - Friday, Illinois lawmakers from all over the state expressed their dismay with the Illinois Supreme Court Democrat majority's decision to block voters from expressing their opinion on a proposed November referendum. Senate Minority Leader Christine Radogno (R-Lemont) released the following statement Friday: Illinois residents, as Illinois Supreme Court Justice Robert Thomas writes, have had their voices ‘muzzled’ after the Illinois Supreme Court ruled yesterday that only politicians, and not the people, have the power to draw legislative district maps. We cannot disenfranchise the will of...

    After Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump launched into his pitch for black America, several outlets reported the black community taking offense, though the majority of what the media found offensive in Trump’s speeches has been explicitly highlighted in the Black Lives Matter movement. The Black Lives Matter website featured an op-ed in Fall 2015 titled “11 Major Misconceptions About the Black Lives Matter Movement,” that sought to clear up misconceptions. The op-ed pointed to the exactly same issues Trump covered in his speech. “But black people are disproportionately poorer, more likely to be targeted by police and arrested, and more...

    An ex-wife of Donald Trump's new campaign CEO, Stephen Bannon, said Bannon made anti-Semitic remarks when the two battled over sending their daughters to private school nearly a decade ago, according to court papers reviewed Friday by The Associated Press. That revelation came a day after reports emerged that domestic violence charges were filed 20 years ago against Bannon following an altercation with his then-wife, Mary Louise Piccard.

    Nearly two years have passed since sheriff’s Deputies Danny Oliver and Michael Davis Jr. were killed in a bloody, two-county rampage, and now the trial of the suspect in their deaths is likely to be delayed by election-year politics.

    Yes, both candidates make personal attacks on their rivals, but there is no parity in how the two parties stigmatize opponents. Democrat vitriol is liberally applied not just to Trump, but to all his supporters. Chatting with a California man who had biked across America, I remarked that it must have been interesting to talk with people across the country. His answer? "Are you crazy? I didn't talk to anyone. They're all rednecks." Character assassination is the liberal weapon of choice against ordinary people. Democrats bully everyone to obey their rules on what we may think and say and do....

    Joseph Heller coined the term “Catch-22” in a novel about bomber crews in World War II. It described a set of Army Air Force regulations that exempted crazy people from flying combat missions. The catch was you had to apply for the exemption. And trying to get out of combat proved you weren’t crazy. In the last 55 years the term has become a catchy way to describe any double bind – which is a logical dilemma that requires someone to correctly answer two questions. And, a correct answer to either one automatically means a wrong answer to the other....
