    Democratic candidates lead by 15 points in a hypothetical matchup for the 2018 midterm elections, according to a new Fox News poll. In the survey, 50 percent of respondents said that if the election for Congress were held today, they would vote for the Democratic candidate. Only 35 percent said they would vote for a Republican. About a year ago, the same question showed voters evenly split, with 45 percent saying they would vote for a Democrat, and 45 percent saying they would vote Republican.
  • Rosie O'Donnell Breaks Her Silence on Donald Trump: "I Seriously Worry Whether I Will Be Able to[tr]

    As someone who's always been outspoken and especially so about her politics, it’s been an unexpectedly quiet year for Rosie O’Donnell. Donald Trump has publicly feuded with and bullied O’Donnell since December 2006, when she called him a “snake oil salesman” during a segment on The View, on which she had a brief run as co-host. For years, Trump called O’Donnell a “loser” and other epithets, bringing up O’Donnell’s appearance as fodder in the primary debates during the 2016 presidential campaign. (snip) I haven’t done any interviews since he’s been elected. Today’s the first day of doing interviews. I haven’t...

    I hope he wins, but it was a mistake for him to say what he said yesterday, for two reasons: 1. As a general rule, you never get in the way of your opponents destroying themselves. 2. At least temporarily, it united them (and the media, same thing) in a spasm of indignation against him, smoothing over their divisions and directing all ire against him. Even if it is a distraction from her coronation, it has put him on the defensive and given people who are still undecided (not us here, but out in the non-political world) one more reason...

    The Times of India ^ | June 19, 2016 | Swaminathan S Anklesaria Aiyar
    When Donald Trump started his zany campaign —laced with racism, xenophobia, nasty remarks about women, and endless falsehoods — most analysts said he could not possibly win the Republican primaries. Yet he did so easily. So, the very analysts who once derided his chances now wonder if he will win the presidential poll. He may be morally terrible, but is good at winning elections. His political incorrectness and willingness to speak his mind have made his rabid populism an electoral advantage, not disadvantage. He has antagonized not just the intelligentsia but the entire Republican establishment. He has violated many basic...
  • Rubio: I still believe Trump can't be trusted with the nuclear codes

    The Politico ^ | June 9, 2016 | Bianca Padró Ocasio
    Sen. Marco Rubio is sticking by his former attack line that Donald Trump can't be trusted with the nuclear codes, despite having previously come around to support Trump as the nominee. In an interview with The Weekly Standard, Rubio reaffirmed his statement from February — when he was still in the throes of a nasty primary battle — that America can't give "the nuclear codes of the United States to an erratic individual." "I stand by everything I said during the campaign," Rubio said on Thursday. Rubio's wobbly support of Trump comes after the presumptive Republican nominee's comments about Judge...

    The FBI is ready to indict Hillary Clinton and if its recommendation isn't followed by the U.S. attorney general, the agency's investigators plan to blow the whistle and go public with their findings, former U.S. House Majority leader Tom DeLay tells Newsmax TV. "I have friends that are in the FBI and they tell me they're ready to indict," DeLay said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show." "They're ready to recommend an indictment and they also say that if the attorney general does not indict, they're going public."

    BONN, Germany (Reuters) - Almost 80 percent of people worldwide are perturbed about global warming and most want tough action to fix the problem, according to a new study that the United Nations touted as a spur to an international climate deal later this year. The report, based on consultations with 10,000 people in 75 nations from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, also showed that 66 percent viewed measures to tackle warming, such as more wind or solar energy, as a chance to improve their quality of life. Christiana Figueres, head of the U.N. Climate Change Secretariat, said the findings were "important...

    UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon appealed Sunday for restraint to avoid an escalation in the Syrian conflict, expressing "grave concern" over Israeli air strikes, AFP reported. "The secretary-general calls on all sides to exercise maximum calm and restraint, and to act with a sense of responsibility to prevent an escalation of what is already a devastating and highly dangerous conflict," his spokesman Martin Nesirky said. Nesirky said the United Nations was unable to independently verify the Israeli strikes, and had no details about them, but Ban "expresses grave concern over reports of air strikes in Syria by the Israeli Air...

  • H1N1 "super flu" plague in Ukraine sparks concern, conspiracy theories about origins

    (NaturalNews) Here's what we know with some degree of certainty about the H1N1 virus in Ukraine right now: nearly 300 people have died from the viral strain, and over 65,000 people have been hospitalized (the actual numbers are increasing by the hour). The virus appears to be either a highly aggressive mutation of the globally-circulating H1N1 strain, or a combination of three different influenza strains now circulating in Ukraine. Some observers suspect this new "super flu" might be labeled viral hemorrhagic pneumonia (meaning it destroys lung tissue until your lungs bleed so much that you drown in your own fluid),...

    Will someone tell me I have no reason for concern? Please! I, as have we all, been informed of the day by day, hour by hour, and lately, minute by minute events and arrangements for the events of the inauguration of President-Elect Barack Hussein Obama. The media has informed us that Obama tailored the inauguration to mimic President-Elect Abraham Lincoln’s Republican ascension to the presidency. It is interesting to learn so much about Abraham Lincoln’s inauguration that I didn’t know. Abraham Lincoln arrived in Washington D.C. on February 23, 1861 and virtually had to sneak into town disguised. Abraham Lincoln’s...

    Please forgive the vanity, but I and others have noticed that wideawake hasn't posted anything for over three weeks. I have contacted the mods and he hasn't been banned or suspended. And I must admit that I have been very concerned for some time. In addition to being perhaps my only ally on a wide range of issues wideawake is one of the most intelligent people on this forum (his IQ has got to be something!). I can't help but think it isn't like him to just disappear for so long without telling someone here. Yet he has and, so...
  • Reports concern Muslims (Alleged checks on San Diego, L.A. mosques spark calls for hearings)

    LA Times ^ | 5/29/08 | H.G. Reza
    A report that mosques in Los Angeles and San Diego are under federal surveillance has resurrected fears in the Muslim community about government monitoring and led two civil rights groups Wednesday to call for congressional hearings. The request for public hearings followed a newspaper article last week that cited FBI and Defense Department files pertaining to surveillance of mosques and Muslims in Southern California. Corey Saylor, Washington spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said the article in the San Diego Union-Tribune "has again raised concerns that our community is being watched." "We've heard about this in the past, but...

    MOSUL — Soldiers assigned to 1st Battalion, 8th Infantry Regiment in Mosul are working to assess and help improve services for basic needs such as schools, healthcare and security. “Essentially we go out and speak with key people at schools, neighborhood healthcare clinics, shopkeepers and local leaders,” said 1st Lt. Larry Gwinn, a platoon leader with the Regiment. “We get to know the people and what their needs are; this will help up us as we enter the rebuilding phase.” Gwinn said sanitation workers were already hired through the local government and were making a difference in the community.

    BEIJING - China said Tuesday it expressed "grave concern" over the USS Kitty Hawk's passage through the politically sensitive Taiwan Strait on its return to Japan. The U.S. aircraft carrier had been barred by China from entering Hong Kong for a Thanksgiving port call. Mainland Chinese authorities reversed their decision, but by then the ships were too far out to sea and did not turn back. "U.S. officials informed China at that time that it took the route because of a storm," Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said at a briefing. "China expressed grave concern to the U.S. and requested...

    WASHINGTON, Oct. 11, 2007 – Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates today expressed concern over the state of U.S.-Turkey relations, a day after Congress passed a symbolic measure that considers Turkey guilty of waging a genocide campaign against Armenians in World War I. Despite appeals from President Bush and other top U.S. officials to reject the measure, the U.S. House of Representatives’ Foreign Affairs Committee yesterday voted 27 to 21 in favor of a nonbinding resolution that characterized the mass killings of some 1.5 million Armenians, which began in 1915, as genocide. “This is a very sensitive subject for a close...

    AP on Yahoo ^ | 7/21/07 | Todd Lewan - ap, a provider of surveillance equipment, attracted little notice itself — until a year ago, when two of its employees had glass-encapsulated microchips with miniature antennas embedded in their forearms. The "chipping" of two workers with RFIDs — radio frequency identification tags as long as two grains of rice, as thick as a toothpick — was merely a way of restricting access to vaults that held sensitive data and images for police departments, a layer of security beyond key cards and clearance codes, the company said. "To protect high-end secure data, you use more sophisticated techniques," Sean Darks, chief executive...
