    A unanimous three-judge panel of the First U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston ruled that New Hampshire authorities furnished no evidence that ballot selfies encouraged vote buying or voter coercion. They failed, as a result, to justify the 2014 laws curbs on an increasingly popular form of speech. ... Since at least 1979 it has been illegal in New Hampshire for a voter to show his ballot to someone else with the intention of disclosing how he plans to vote.

    During the Commander-in-Chief forum held in New York City on Sept. 7, close-up photos of Hillary Clinton's left ear showed she had some sort of earpiece in it, prompting concerns she was receiving on-the-fly coaching from her campaign while taking questions. Now, a Reuters photo of Clinton shows she may have had the same type of device in her ear again on Monday evening during the first presidential debate with Donald Trump. Was she getting instructions from her campaign team while she was engaged in the debate? The earpiece used Sept. 7 was a pearl color. The object in her...

    Reuters has taken some heat in recent months for "tweaking" their polling methodology seemingly every time the data reveals "inconvenient" results for Hillary (see our previous posts on the topic here and here). But the latest Reuters/Ipsos polling "tweak" is truly amazing. Having run out of options for slyly "tweaking" questions and categories to sway respondents in their preferred direction, Reuters has apparnetly resorted to blatant poll tampering by altering their polling samples to include a disproportionate number of democrats. In their latest poll, released just two days ago, Reuters found Hillary to have a 6 point lead in a...

    Lawmakers are venting outrage over high prescription drug costs, but if Congress is looking for culprits, it might want to look in the mirror. Republican- and Democratic-controlled Congresses, and presidents of both parties, may have set the stage for the startling prices that have consumers on edge. In the last 13 years, Congress passed major legislation that expanded taxpayer-financed coverage for prescription drugs but lacked explicit mechanisms for dealing with costs, instead relying mainly on market forces. [] The history we see over and over again is that when the government steps in as a guaranteed payer without regard to...

California Highway Patrol officers could retire at 50 and receive as much as 90% of their peak pay for as long as they lived.

The findings are important for controlling Zika virus in Florida and preventing...

    The woman who struggles with confusion in everything she attempts addressed the House members. She said, It is important as this Congress begins to deal with the confusion of the continuing resolution that it be noted that we have not addressed the question of gun violence, ending gun violence, closing the loop hole that is so important in a background check. She complains that those who are on the terror watch list have random access to buying guns.

Roughly 45 percent of people that enroll in college ultimately drop out without ever...

Clinton's running mate, Tim Kaine, spent two days in the state last week, holding a Houston rally in which he declared that he and Clinton "take Texas very seriously." . .

    Why not turn the internet over to the UN? Just because Al Gore invented it doesnt mean it belongs to us.So why should the U.S. remain the protector of the open Internet? Weve had it long enough, lets give others a chance to play. Lets let other countries, many of which want a closed, censored internet, take charge for awhile and see how that works out.Lets let Sharia run the internet for awhileAnd since everybody knows the UN is a great body working selfishly towards world peace, better race relations and Green energy, what could possiblygo wrong?
