Included in the most recent dump is a November 2015 confidential memorandum to Democratic National Campaign Committee (DCCC) staff with the subject line, ďRE: Black Lives Matter Movement (Internal Use Only).Ē...

    Iranian television has broadcast what some say is purported footage of the $400 million pallets of cash that officials claim was part of the ďexpensive priceĒ paid by the Obama administration to free several U.S. hostages. The footage, which could not be independently verified, shows images of large stacks of hard currency and features claims that the Obama administration sent this money over as part of an effort to free several U.S. hostages. The White House vehemently denied these claims this week following new reports about the cash exchange. BBC Persian reporter Hadi Nili posted the footage on Twitter and...

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- With mothers of police violence victims on the stage and anti-gun protesters in the streets, Hillary Clinton and Democrats are giving gun control and efforts to curb police violence a starring role at their summer convention. "They're too easily accessible to everyone, even children. You can go out on the street and get a gun," said Terrez McCleary of Philadelphia, who lost her 21-year-old daughter to gun violence in 2009 and was among a few hundred people held a rally against gun violence Tuesday in Philadelphia's Logan Square.

    Perhaps it will turn out that the latest assassination of police officers, this time in Baton Rouge, is unrelated to the hatred fomented by the Black Lives Matter movement. Perhaps the gunmen were members of militia groups aggrieved by federal overreach, say. But the overwhelming odds are that this most recent assault on law and order, taking the lives of three officers and wounding at least three more, is the direct outcome of the political and media frenzy that followed the police shootings of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge and Philando Castile in Falcon Heights, Minnesota, less than two weeks...

    Congress will introduce legislation to ban all State Department officials from using private email accounts and servers to conduct any official business, the Free Beacon has learned. The legislation, to be introduced Tuesday by Sen. David Perdue (R., Ga.) and viewed by the Free Beacon, comes in direct response to the repeated disclosure of sensitive classified materials as a result of Democratic presidential frontrunner and former Secretary of State Hillary Clintonís private email server. U.S. officials familiar with the legislation characterized it as a sweeping reform effort meant to ensure that U.S. officials never again jeopardize national security through the...

    Hillary Clinton spent yesterday doing damage control after the release of the Inspector General report on her use of a secret e-mail server exposed her continuous stream of lies over the last 15 months on the topic. As part of that effort, Hillary called into Meet the Press Daily, where Chuck Todd took a skeptical view of the spin coming from Team Hillary, as Leah Barkoukis notes at Townhall. Todd zeroed in on one statement from the IG report in which Hillary refused to use an official State Department e-mail. Until yesterday, Hillary claimed she wanted one system for ďconvenience,Ē...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders defeated Hillary Clinton by 12 points in last Tuesday's Oregon Democratic primary. It was an unusual victory in that Clinton's nomination is already a done deal. Sanders has no hope of catching the Democratic establishment's chosen champion. Even he knows superdelegates, party guardians of the status quo, are not going to defect from a candidate who has the most votes and earned delegates. Yet not only did Oregon reject Clinton at this late stage, but Kentucky, viewed by most as a relatively safe state for her, very nearly went to Sanders as well. Her 1,900-vote, 0.5 percentage-point...

    Even while embroiled in a series of heated exchanges with the main rival in her own party, Hillary Clinton said she found the tenor of the Republican candidates' words to be "deeply distressing." "In my analysis, and I think it's fair, Donald Trump agrees with Republicans on many of the hot button issues," she told TODAY's Matt Lauer in a sit-down interview that aired Friday. "What he said about abortion, for example, his absolute insulting action toward immigrants, calling them rapists and criminals, he is expressing, maybe in more colorful language, what Republicans believe."

    If Donald Trump were the GOP nominee, he would cause the highest voter turnout, relative to any other Republican hopeful. John Kasich, on the other hand, would keep people at home. No matter what party affiliation you consider, Trump brings them out. Republicans, Democrats and independents are all most likely to show up if Trump is on the ballot. (In our analysis, we assumed a constant variable: the Democrats nominating Hillary Clinton.) Not only do they show up to vote, but they vote for Trump. He's got the highest percentage of voters - across both parties and independents.

At the same time, the media's obsession with politicized fundamentalism distracts public attention from the changing role of religion in political life today. In particular,...

    America's two major political parties have a difficult task: amassing a 51 percent coalition in a nation that has always been -- not just now, but from the beginning -- regionally, religiously, racially and ethnically diverse. George W. Bush's Republicans in 2006 and 2008 were not able to hold together the 51 percent coalition that re-elected him in 2004. Barack Obama's Democrats in 2014 were not able to hold together the 51 percent coalition that re-elected him in 2012. And, while the media and the voters are transfixed by the antics of Donald Trump, and speculating on possible damage to...
