    I noticed on Thursday, one Khizr Khan is going to speak before the former White House dog Chelsea speaks. Why does this party embrace Muslimism even tho Muslims wanna kill those the Democrat Party claims to protect, like gays, atheists, women, etc?? Now, we've seen the story of what Tim Kaine hired a decade ago, a virulent Islamist and Israel-hater (tho both are really the same thing). I'd bet this Khan character is similar. I think something is going on...let's look into it.

    For U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, there aren't enough characters on Twitter to describe Republican nominee Donald Trump, so instead she took to the stage at the National Council of La Raza conference in Orlando, unleashing a burning indictment of the businessman to about 300 people. Calling Trump a "loud-mouthed fraud," "thin-skinned" and "a man with cash in his hand and hate in his heart," Warren says presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and her running mate Tim Kaine must be the next president and vice president respectively. "Trump will never be president of the United States," she says to the cheering...

    Hillary Clinton exchanged nearly two-dozen top secret emails from her unsecured, private server with three senior aides, the State Department revealed in documents released to VICE News late Friday. The 22 emails were sent and received by Clinton in 2011 and 2012. Clinton discussed classified information with her deputy chief of staff, Jacob Sullivan, her chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, and Deputy Secretary of State William Burns. A majority of the top secret emails are email chains between Sullivan and Clinton. This is the first time the State Department has revealed the identities of the officials who exchanged classified information...

A Florida cop who wounded an unarmed black therapist was actually trying to shoot the man’s patient, a union official said Thursday. The unidentified North Miami police officer thought Charles Kinsey — who was lying on his back with his arms in the air — was in danger, his union chief said. The patient, who escaped from MACtown Inc., a nearby group home where Kinsey works, had a toy in his hand. “All he has is a toy truck, a toy truck,” Kinsey told the cop Monday, according...

By Friday evening, it vanished completely from the site's "trending" bar for at least 20 minutes. It returned as "#DNCLeak" after users erupted, though it was too late to quell their rage.

The incidence of guns being very bad has incresed 10% over the last year, and 27% since 1968. This study also shows that the qualititive level of badness in each gun has gone from "Bad" to "Horrifically Bad" in that same time period. The study also suggests...

Nearly two-thirds of respondents expressed support for stricter laws, with majorities favoring nationwide bans on the sale of semi-automatic assault weapons such as the AR-15 and on the sale of high-capacity magazines holding 10 or more bullets.
