    *snip* While talking to the media, she (Corrine Brown) was surrounded by people holding up signs that said things such as “Corrine Matters!” and “Stop the Witch Hunt on Black Leaders in Jacksonville, Fla.” After Brown left the circus and sped off in an SUV, one supporter began collecting the signs. He pulled a wad of cash out of his pocket. And as people handed him signs, he handed them bills. Maybe their support was genuine. I got that sense from talking to a few of them. I also got the sense, in some cases, it was more a matter...

She says that as waves crashed over her, she felt Bhatia's hands all over her body. Another victim says she was in the wave pool when Bhatia grabbed her waist from behind. She was able to break loose from his grasp, but he grabbed her again. Four others reported similar incidents to authorities.

    How many times do we let ourselves get into terrible situations because we don't say "I forgot"? Let's say you're on trial for armed robbery. You say to the judge, "I forgot armed robbery was illegal." Let's suppose he says back to you, "You have committed a foul crime. you have stolen hundreds and thousands of dollars from people at random, and you say, 'I forgot'?" Two simple words: Excuuuuuse me!!"

    A South American airline issued a memo to its employees Monday to be on the lookout for a former Guantanamo Bay detainee who was resettled in Uruguay after being freed by the U.S. and has since vanished. *snip* The alert about Syrian native Abu Wa’el Dhiab adds to a growing mystery about his whereabouts. The Uruguayan authorities have insisted for weeks that he’s visiting neighboring Brazil and that as a refugee he is entitled to leave Uruguay. However, Brazilian authorities have said there is no record of Dhiab entering the country.

    "We came, we saw, he died," Secretary of State Hillary Clinton joked on a CBS interview when told about the death of Libyan Dictator Muammar Qaddafi on October 20, 2011. Prior to the overthrow of the Gaddafi government, Muslim women in Libya were the beneficiaries of gender sensitive policies encouraging advanced education and entrepreneurism through small business loans. These western-focused policies were created to give Libyan women equal access to economic resources, such as finance and land ownership.

    FBI agents are "livid" about Attorney General Loretta Lynch's meeting with Bill Clinton, Fox News chief intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge reported today on Outnumbered. Herridge said that, according to a well-placed FBI source, the agents are not just upset about the poor optics of the meeting. She explained that Bill Clinton is a potential witness because the FBI is separately investigating corruption allegations against the Clinton Foundation.

    French President François Hollande endorsed Hillary Clinton in a newspaper article published Thursday, likening Republican Donald Trump’s nativist bombast to anti-immigrant movements across Europe. Hollande said “the best thing the Democrats can do is to get Hillary Clinton elected” in the article, published Thursday in France’s Les Echos newspaper. The socialist president also said electing Trump “would complicate relations between Europe and the U.S." and agreed with the notion that it would be dangerous.

    A majority of British voters said Thursday that the United Kingdom should leave the European Union, launching markets into turmoil as investors tried to digest what the referendum means for the U.K. and the European bloc as a whole. Although concern for the future of the EU may seem like hyperbole, nearly every member state has a political contingent in favor of leaving the union, and the successful Brexit vote may have just politically legitimized — and energized — those movements.

War Plan Red discussed the potential for fighting a war with Britain and its Empire and outlined those steps necessary to defend the Atlantic coast against any attempted mainland invasion of the United States

    Hillary Clinton has claimed from the very beginning of the email scandal that nothing she sent or received was marked classified at the time. *snip* Unfortunately for Hillary, the State Department today released an email from 2012 that totally contradicts her "fact." According to Catherine Herridge at Fox News, the email carries "a classified code known as a 'portion marking' - and that marking was on the email when it was sent directly to Clinton’s account."

    Obama formally endorsed Hillary today. If Obama thought that an indictment was even remotely possible, why would he endorse her now? He'd instead make some excuse, and then hold off his endorsement until the convention. Obama does not like to be embarrassed by events. So I must conclude that the fix is in.

    Trade is a hot issue in the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign. But correspondence from Hillary Clinton and her top State Department aides about a controversial 12-nation trade deal will not be available for public review — at least not until after the election. The Obama administration abruptly blocked the release of Clinton’s State Department correspondence about the so-called Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), after first saying it expected to produce the emails this spring.

    Perry Lutz says his struggle to survive as a small businessman became a lot harder after California voters reduced theft penalties 1½ years ago. About a half-dozen times this year, shoplifters have stolen expensive drones or another of the remote-controlled toys he sells (...). "It's just pretty much open season," Lutz said. "They'll pick the $800 unit and just grab it and run out the door." Anything below $950 keeps the crime a misdemeanor — and likely means the thieves face no pursuit and no punishment, say retailers and law enforcement officials.

So should Cruz be the GOP nominee, Joe will vote as the media - or his family tradition - tells him to. Cruz will lose in a landslide, just as Goldwater did.

    The Obama administration plans to forgive $7.7 billion in federal student loans held by nearly 400,000 permanently disabled Americans. By law, anyone with a severe disability is eligible to have the government discharge their federal student loans. The administration took steps four years ago to make the process easier by letting people who are totally and permanently disabled use their Social Security designation to apply for a discharge, but few took advantage.
