  • Clinton’s ‘Chelsea Test’ Not a Reality for Most Families

    US News & World Report ^ | 6/28/2016 | Lauren Camera
    Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is sometimes portrayed as not fully understanding the realities struggling families face. And to some extent, her perceived lack of empathy has undercut a campaign in which she has struggled to convince voters that she is working in their interests. The issue re-emerged Tuesday, when the former secretary of state, speaking during a visit to a technology company in Denver, briefly talked about the schools she visited during her two-plus decades in politics.She outlined a "test" for the quality of the classrooms she saw – one that few parents might be in a position...

    I believe Mr. Will has a genuine distaste for what may become Trump Conservatism. Trump represents a kind of happy warrior style of American politician, similar to Harry Truman and Rough Rider Teddy Roosevelt. It's obviously too low-class for Will, Romney and Jeb Bush, who are all too delicate for the political blood sport that the Left has imposed on our politics. Nothing is too low for the Left. Literally nothing. The national GOP has been in decline for years, running decrepit candidates like Bob Dole, John McCain, and Mitt Romney -- who actually did flinch in the last debate...

    Washington Post ^ | June 27, 2016 | Michelle Boorstein
    Monday’s Supreme Court ruling tossing Texas abortion restrictions puts a massive spotlight on the new debate pressing evangelicals: Which is a worse sin, racism or abortion? For decades, abortion has been the mother of all deciding issues for evangelicals, who make up about a quarter of the U.S. population and are strongly opposed. But in the 2016 race, with Donald Trump’s unusually incendiary comments about race, culture and religion, this second issue is becoming increasingly sacred. This question of how to deal with Hillary Clinton’s robust support for abortion rights along with Trump’s challenging of the place of minorities is...

A section of the report obtained by POLITICO says the so-called Accountability Review Board did not act independently, as it was supposed to do, and was consistently influenced by Mills. Mills, the report says, helped select members of the panel, gave at least one other State Department official permission to talk to the reviewers, oversaw the production of some documents...

In command of the greatest military in the world, yet officials sat back in Washington’s comfort, not allowing our troops to do their job to protect fellow Americans.

    Congressman Charles Rangel was swift-footed and savvy enough to stay ahead of demographic and geographic shifts in his district during his 46 years in the House of Representatives—but in the end, he just didn’t have enough juice to anoint an heir. Harlem Assemblyman Keith Wright lost his bid to replace his retiring 86-year-old mentor to State Senator Adriano Espaillat, who challenged Rangel in 2012 and 2014 but fell short. After a bitter Democratic primary campaign—one with heavy ethnic overtones—the Dominican Republic-born Espaillat beat the African-American Wright in the upper Manhattan-based district by approximately 1,300 votes. Former White House aide Clyde...

    MONESSEN, Pa. (AP) -- Donald Trump called for a new era of economic "Americanism" Tuesday, promising to restore millions of lost factory jobs by backing away from decades of U.S. policy that encouraged trade with other nations - a move that could undermine the country's place as the dominant player in the global economy. The speech marked a significant break from years of Republican Party advocacy for unencumbered trade between nations, and drew immediate condemnation from GOP business leaders.

    Battleground state polls show Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton locked in a tight race for the White House with just more than four months to go before Election Day. Clinton has so far failed to pull away in the 10 states likely to determine the outcome of the 2016 election, even as Trump has suffered through what some political observers describe as the worst stretch they’ve seen a major presidential candidate endure. Trump in the last few weeks has fired his campaign manager, seen Republicans flee from his campaign and released embarrassingly low fundraising figures. Yet he is running competitively...

    California voters will decide whether to legalize recreational marijuana after Secretary of State Alex Padilla said Tuesday that initiative proponents turned in more than enough signatures to place the question on the November ballot. A successful vote in California would mean one in every six Americans lives in a state with legal marijuana sales, including the entire West Coast. The initiative is promoted by a well-funded and politically connected coalition spearheaded by former Facebook president Sean Parker. It asks voters to allow people 21 and older to buy an ounce of marijuana and marijuana-infused products at licensed retail outlets and...

The ECFR report blamed Europe’s fear of Turkey joining the EU and the German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s “refugees welcome” policy as major reasons behind a rapid rise in support for both right-wing and far-left, anti-EU parties and...

Presently, the Federal Communications Commission reports 10 percent of Americans, roughly 34 million people, do not have access to broadband Internet. The vast majority of them are people living in rural areas, where tech companies have declined to install the infrastructure necessary to bring high-speed Internet to a small number customers due to the cost.

Dr. Mudar Zahran, a Muslim refugee living in Europe, warned in an interview last October that Muslim migrants should be kept out of Europe. Nor is it close to the most extreme idea recently voiced; that title belongs to a Samoan proposal to ban Islam itself. And now it’s clear that it’s also a mainstream idea in the United States, with polls showing that Americans have come to favor a temporary ban on Muslim immigration. While Trump’s proposal has long been a winner with GOP primary voters, it...

    Dear Trump supporters,A recent ABC/Washington Post poll of “registered voters” purports to show that Donald Trump lags 12 points behind Hillary Clinton in a national head-to-head contest. In case you’re inclined to accept this at face value—don’t. First, this poll does indeed purport to gauge preferences nationally. Ultimately, what’s going to matter is how the candidates fare in the battleground states. For example, a Pew Poll from just last week showed Trump beating Clinton by two points in North Carolina (a state that Barack Obama won in 2008).Secondly, it is June. The election isn’t until November. Thirdly, this poll focuses...

    WARREN: When Donald Trump says he'll make America great, he means make it even greater for rich guys just like Donald Trump. FOLLOWERS: (grumbling) WARREN: Great for the guys who don't care how much they've already squeezed from everyone else. Great for the guys who always want more. Because that's who Donald Trump is, the guy who wants it all for himself. And watch out, because he will crush you into the dirt to get whatever he wants. FOLLOWERS: (angry cheers) WARREN: That's who he is: A small, insecure money-grubber who fights for no one but himself! RUSH: You know,...

    American Latinos for Donald Trump expressed outrage on Monday against the mainstream media for coverage given to Hispanics who support Trump – specifically pointing to a Politico article published on Sunday titled, “The lonely lives of Latinos for Trump.” Mark F., who wishes to leave his last name anonymous, was interviewed by Politico and briefly mentioned in the article because he produced many videos for a group on Twitter, “Latinos for Trump.” He said he thought it was unfair that Politico portrayed Latinos as lonely. “I am not ‘Lonely.’ My whole family is voting for Trump. I am very vocal...

    The final Benghazi Report is out, and it is a revealing and thorough indictment of the actions of President Obama, Secretary Clinton, and many within the Obama administration... Of course, we now know that Obama administration repeatedly lied to and misled the American public about the Benghazi attack. Then, four years later, the Orlando massacre happens, and the Islamic apologists within the Obama administration again attempt to cover-up what really happened when a radical Islamist kills 49 inside a nightclub. As if it needed to be said again, liberals simply cannot be trusted when it comes to Islam, radical Islam,...

    In a 5-3 decision on Monday, the United States Supreme Court struck down parts of a Texas law that substantially restricted abortion access. Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton praised the decision, saying the highest court in the land "upheld every woman's right" to "safe and legal" abortion. But if silence can be deafening, it is one word she didn't use that might have echoed loudest. Missing from her comments on Monday, was a third adjective she once routinely used to describe her preference for abortions in America: "rare."

    Democrats have been making a dramatic scene in the House this week by staging a “sit-in” with hopes to force a vote on further gun control laws, spurred by Omar Mateen’s attack on a gay nightclub in Orlando. But even politicians get a little hungry when they are busy sitting on the floor, so they decided to call for some delivery—and conservatives will probably get a kick out of what they ordered. TMZ caught interns bringing in a big cart of Chick-fil-A for the famished protesters.
