    Dish Network Corp. lost a record number of TV subscribers in the second quarter as programming blackouts and price increases drove customers to seek cheaper online alternatives, reviving industrywide concerns about “cord-cutting.” Dish shed 281,000 pay-TV customers in the quarter, compared with a loss of 81,000 a year earlier, according to a statement from the Englewood, Colorado-based company Thursday. That marks the biggest loss of TV subscribers in any quarter. The rate of monthly customer defections, or churn, rose to 1.96 percent from 1.71 percent a year earlier, Dish said in a separate filing.

    Donna Rachel Edmunds23 Jul 20161 Islamic State and their supporters have been celebrating the Munich gun attack as though they orchestrated the event, although no links have been found between the killer and Islamist organisations. Following the news that an 18-year-old Iranian-German had opened fire in a McDonalds restaurant and mall in Munich, killing nine and injuring 21 others, Twitter accounts run by supporters of Islamic state claimed that the organisation is “expanding into Europe,” while one of Islamic State’s main propaganda channels claimed the “Whole Europe [sic] is now under our terrorism.”(snip)

    A Syrian refugee wielding a machete has killed a woman and injured two other people in Germany before being arrested by police. The attack happened in the south western city of Reutlingen near a doner kebab stand at Listplatz Square. German media have been reporting that the motive for the attack in the city south of Stuttgart was unclear. Pictures from the scene appear to show the knifeman lying on the ground with blood on his face. Armed police officers can be seen pinning him down to the ground before binding his hands behind his back. . One eyewitness told...

    Based on traditional campaign markers and guideposts, experts predict Trump will go down in humiliating defeat to Hillary Clinton. I think they are wrong, folks. Michael Jackson said, “I'm not like other guys.” I say Donald Trump is not like other politicians. When Trump announced his bid for the White House, snooty political elites laughed, “Look at this idiot.” They had no idea that millions of Americans at home watching were saying, “Yeah! Right on! I like this guy!” Polls continue to tighten between Trump and Hillary. I suspect some of Hillary's lead is due to voters lying to pollsters...

    (CNN) — Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz will not speak at or preside over the party's convention this week, a decision reached by party officials Saturday after emails surfaced that raised questions about the committee's impartiality during the Democratic primary. The DNC Rules Committee on Saturday named Rep. Marcia Fudge, D-Ohio, as permanent chair of the convention, according to a DNC source. She will gavel each session to order and will gavel each session closed.

    I’m one of those rare few who don’t believe in paying for television or radio, so most of my updates on the RNC convention came via network news, public television, public radio and a smattering of Liberal-leaning websites. Since it’s unlikely that most here frequent these “news” sources, I thought that I would share my takeaway from the Left’s point of view this week: Monday – Apparently nobody gave speeches on Monday if you get your news from the Left. Coverage revolved around all the people carrying guns and all the police in and around the convention center. Since the...

    Most pundits consider Tim Kaine a safe, if boring, vice presidential running mate for Hillary Clinton. For those who truly understand the frontrunner, Kaine is an apt pick. Like Mike Pence, he is not exceptionally attention-grabbing. Neither of them has to be. The two top dogs in the race already have all the deep-throated growl they need. Kaine has been operating in the political arena for over 22 years. He has an all too familiar "insider" résumé that tracks his career moves through various levels of state, party, and federal government. He is being touted by Democrats as someone who...

Someone should have whispered in his ear these words from Omar Khayyam: " “The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ, Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line, Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it.” Some say his phrase “vote your conscience” was just a call to support the entire ticket.

    FBI director's assessment that Clinton was extremely careless is 'disqualifying' A former White House counsel believes Hillary Clinton should have her security clearance revoked due to the FBI’s assessment that she was “extremely careless” with classified information as secretary of state. C. Boyden Gray, who worked in the White House as legal counsel for both President Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, said that Clinton should no longer receive daily intelligence briefings after FBI Director James Comey revealed the agency’s finding from its investigation that she was “extremely careless” with “very sensitive, highly classified information.” “I don’t recall ever giving...

    MSNBC host Chris Matthews slammed the Republican National Convention speech Monday by the mother of one of the four killed in Benghazi, saying he didn’t "care what that woman up there, the mother, has felt." While he praised the RNC address by "Lone Survivor" Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell, he sharply criticized the remarks by Patricia Smith calling Hillary Clinton a liar who deserved to be in prison. Her son Sean Smith perished in the 2012 terrorist attack, and Clinton’s handling of the ordeal and subsequent deceit about its causes as secretary of state have plagued her ever since. "This gross...

Stein’s comments come in the wake of a massive leak of emails from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) this weekend that revealed party officials' plans to undermine Sanders's presidential campaign. In one such email, the DNC press secretary discussed planting a narrative to the...

Citations have increased by 28% over the last two years. The top five offenses include unaccounted for absences, failure to follow instructions, improper screening & security, neglect of duty, and disruptive behavior. TSA Administrator Peter Neffenger sought to downplay the issue by pointing out that “despite unmanned posts, inappropriate groping petty theft, and abusive behavior by our employees no flights have been hijacked on my watch..

    Donald Trump isn’t a simpleton, he just talks like one. If you were to market Donald Trump’s vocabulary as a toy, it would resemble a small box of Lincoln Logs. Trump resists multisyllabic words and complex, writerly sentence constructions when speaking extemporaneously in a debate, at a news conference or in an interview. He prefers to link short, blocky words into other short, blocky words to create short, blocky sentences that he then stacks into short, blocky paragraphs.

    With new flags on the Parkway, new lights on the boathouses, and new efforts to shelter the homeless, the Democrats who have run Philadelphia for more than half a century have cleaned up the city for the Democratic National Convention. If only they could clean up themselves. Given its historic resonance, continuing revival, and convenient location in a politically important state, Philadelphia is a fine place for a convention. The city's chief flaw as a backdrop for the Democrats is, well, the Democrats. In just the past three years, Philadelphia Democrats have seen a congressman, a state senator, five state...

    Three Teachings from the Lord on Prayer Msgr. Charles Pope • July 23, 2016 • Photo by Michael Hoyt for the Catholic StandardLast week’s Gospel featured the Lord insisting that prayer was “the one thing necessary.” This week, we see the disciples’ request that the Lord teach them on prayer. In answer, the Lord gives three basic teachings or prescriptions for prayer.Let’s look at these three prescriptions. I. Pattern of Prayer – The Gospel opens as follows: Jesus was praying in a certain place, and when he had finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us...

    If there has been any constant in the Republican worldview over decades, it's that American strength, resolve and credibility are essential in foreign affairs, and weakness and uncertainty lead straight to disaster. The GOP legions regard Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton as failures because they have been insufficiently willing to challenge our adversaries and stand with our friends. "Our allies don't trust us, and our enemies don't fear us" is a claim made by one Republican after another. But the Cleveland convention was a study in dissonance between the bedrock convictions of just about every loyal Republican and the opinions...

    Hillary remains a rich vein of commentary, so much so that I could (and might) spend from now to November writing about her peccadilloes. The one part of her march to the presidency that baffles me is that anyone who runs a business would support her campaign. The woman has no history in business, no understanding of how business operates, and the only laurel on which she relies is that during her husband’s terms business did fairly well. Yet many businesses have paid a pretty penny to hear her sage advice. Ms. Clinton has recently been supporting new restrictions on...

    An Associated Press (AP) poll released July 23 shows that 59 percent of Americans disapprove of President Obama’s handling of gun laws, and an even greater majority, 62 percent, believe owning a gun makes people safer by “preventing them from becoming victims of crime.” The poll also shows that 53 percent of Americans support national reciprocity for concealed carry permits. National reciprocity renders a concealed carry permit issued in one state valid in every state. An overwhelming majority of respondents also said a “high priority” for law enforcement should be “cracking down on people who own guns illegally” and “cracking...

    Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) is on Hillary Clinton’s short list of potential vice presidential nominees. He’s also actively pushing bank deregulation this week as he campaigns for the job. Kaine signed two letters on Monday urging federal regulators to go easy on banks ― one to help big banks dodge risk management rules, and another to help small banks avoid consumer protection standards. Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's ... pick is widely viewed in Washington as a sign of her governing intentions.
  • BREAKING (Since April): Government Of Kenya Has Released Obama's Authentic Birth Certificate

    BREAKING: Government Of Kenya Has Released Obama's Authentic Birth Certificate ⋆ US Herald Bob Amoroso "There is something on that birth certificate that he doesn't like." That was one of the many quotes from frontrunner and Presidential Candidate Donald Trump, about Obama’s mysterious and sketchy past and of course where this guy was actually born, and those persistent rumors of two different identities and Social Security numbers. Perhaps after almost 8-years in office the answer as to who the man sitting in the Oval Office is, may actually be revealed. According to reports, the Office of the Principal Register of...

    Even in the week that he is nominated by the Republican party for the presidency of the United States, intelligent people fail in droves to understand what Donald Trump has accomplished It was disappointing the editorial in this newspaper on Tuesday that “a Trump presidency would be a descent into the uncertainties of anger, bitterness, and division … a recipe for disaster.” This is a widespread view, but it is bunk. Senator Marco Rubio observed as he left the race, having been bombed by almost a million votes in his home state by Trump (who, remember, had no “ground game”),...
  • Clinton's campaign manager: Russia helping Trump

    Hillary Clinton's campaign manager is alleging that Russian hackers are leaking Democratic National Committee emails critical of Bernie Sanders in an effort to help Donald Trump win the election in November. It comes on the heels of "changes to the Republican platform to make it more pro-Russian," Robby Mook told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union" Sunday. "I don't think it's coincidental that these emails were released on the eve of our convention here, and I think that's disturbing," he said. The DNC has previously had its files hacked by an individual named "Guccifer 2.0" that may have...
