The FBI is currently investigating 900 cases in all 50 states including active cases here.

    Presidential candidate Jill Stein fired back at Bay State U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren for claiming that a vote for the Green Party nominee could only help Donald Trump.

    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Voters not in tune with everything politics may not even know what the Green Party is. That's the party Dr. Jill Stein represents. It's the party that is based on principles like social justice and protecting the environment. The trouble for Stein? She's not well-known. She represents the party that hardly gets any airtime, the party that does not spend millions on ad campaigns, the party hidden behind the big two candidates from the two big parties. But there is a market for Stein, one with plenty of devout supporters.

    A gun buyback event at two Minneapolis fire stations has been so popular Saturday that both stations are now closed. The city teamed up with Pillsbury United Communities for the gun buyback event. The event began at 10 a.m. Saturday and was supposed to run until 6 p.m. at Stations 14 and 17 in Minneapolis, but the Visa gift cards that were being handed out in exchange for the guns have run out. An estimated 150 guns were dropped off during the event, according to Minneapolis police.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced this week it will purchase the nearly 11 million pounds of cheese for "private inventories." Before you get too excited about government-funded grilled cheese sandwiches, that means the cheese will go to food banks and charity groups around the country.

    In 2016, pretty much everyone is used to heated political debates. But one North Texas couple believes they're under attack because of their political preference. Matt Steadman says he was unfazed when a Hillary Clinton yard sign was stolen off his lawn, then it happened again. The third time, someone left a note under his doormat reading, "Hillary for Prison 2016." That's when things took a dark turn. The next day his SUV wouldn't start. It was sabotaged beyond repair. "I smelled the inside of my gas tank and there was bleach," Steadman said.

    If somebody asked you to list all the insects you liked, you could probably give an honest answer in the same breath it takes you to violently exhale after being asked such a ridiculous question. Because unless you’re an entomologist, the answer is always the same: butterflies, dragonflies, and ladybugs—pretty and harmless, and infinitely unlikely to burrow under your skin while you sleep. But give a dragonfly a chance to grow three feet long, and suddenly they don’t seem quite so harmless. In fact, if the Meganeura, or giant dragonflies, of prehistory were still around, they might be in charge...

    Black Republicans generally praise Donald Trump's newfound outreach for African-American votes that typically go to a Democratic presidential nominee. But they say Trump shouldn't just make the appeal at his rallies, which have nearly all-white audiences and often are held in majority white communities. Instead, they say Trump must go to the inner cities he's started mentioning in his campaign speeches. Meanwhile, many other black voters say the New York billionaire's outreach is misguided or even offensive, and they say they still plan to back Democrat Hillary Clinton.

If Donald Trump doesn’t win the White House in November, Christie does not go to Washington. He’s already putting one child through college, with two more due to start when he leaves office. A reporter asked him about a couple recent appearances as a substitute sports talk host on New York radio.

    I feel sorry for the Venezuelan people, but I’m perversely glad that the country is collapsing. That’s because it’s nice to have proof that Margaret Thatcher was right when she famously warned that the problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money. To be sure, we already had proof from Greece, France, the Soviet Union, Brazil, and many other places. But it’s still nice to have another piece of evidence that big government eventually produces very dire results.

    With the resignation of campaign chairman Paul Manafort, the Trump campaign is now without a single senior figure who has ever run a campaign. Donald Trump's team has always been a lean operation fueled by the candidate himself rather than the organization around him, but from the very beginning the Trump campaign included people who had at least some experience running political campaigns. But now the top ranks of the team include family members, conservative media executive Stephen Bannon and Republican pollster Kellyanne Conway, the new campaign manager.
