    NEW YORK (AP) -- Donald Trump says he took the moral high ground at the first presidential debate by not mentioning the infidelities of former President Bill Clinton. But he hinted at them, talked about them immediately afterward and then sent his campaign's top backers out to do the same."An impeachment for lying," Trump said Thursday at a campaign rally in New Hampshire, referring to the effort to remove Bill Clinton from office for lying about his affair with Monica Lewinsky. "Remember that? Impeach."The Republican nominee's decision to dredge up the former president's sexual history is a risky move in...

    It’s a good thing for labor unions that Antonin Scalia died earlier this year, Tom Perez, President Obama’s Labor Secretary, said on Thursday. Perez, a progressive whom Hillary Clinton considered choosing as her running mate, was answering questions during a session at the Washington Ideas Forum when he was asked about strategies to increase labor union membership. “Well, I think you have all these — there’s an unmitigated assault on labor unions across a number of states and there was a case that went before the Supreme Court recently, and frankly if Justice Scalia had not passed away it would...

    US Army Accidentally Tweets 'Trump Lies' Military.com | Sep 29, 2016 | by Brendan McGarry The U.S. Army called the Republican presidential candidate a liar in an errant tweet. The service issued an apology after accidentally tweeting, "Trump Lies Once Every 3 Minutes, 15 Seconds." The message linked to an article on a website called www.thenewcivilrightsmovement.com, founded to advance civil rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. The tweet was swiftly taken down from the Army's Twitter page, but had already circulated on social media, including on a Facebook page called "U.S Army W.T.F! Moments," whose curator on Tuesday...

During his knife attack, Adan demanded to know if his victims were Muslim before stabbing them but made the fatal mistake of threatening an armed off-duty cop, Jason Falconer, who shot him dead. Rahami who came to the U.S. with his family as part of an Afghan asylum program, was arrested in 2014...

Nothing outstanding. He gave me very unfair questions at...

    Hillary Clinton's damn emails will continue to be a campaign issue leading right up into the presidential election. Late Wednesday, the State Department agreed to post to its website by November 3 as many as 1,850 pages of emails that Clinton failed to turn over originally. The FBI recovered the emails during the bureau's investigation into Clinton's email practices. The deal was hammered out between VICE News and the State and Justice departments in response to our ongoing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits against the agencies. We sued State in January 2015 for all of Clinton's emails, two months...

    Do you know what the real purpose of NBC's Saturday Night Live is? If you thought comedy, you would be wrong according to Politico. No, the main purpose of SNL is to act in a completely partisan manner in order to TAKE DOWN TRUMP. Got that? As Politico on Thursday makes clear, Saturday Night Live will be going after Donald Trump leading into the election starting with this weekend's episode. To make sure of this, politically unhinged Alec Baldwin will be portraying Trump. Perhaps Darrell Hammond is not partisan enough and plays it for that old fashioned thing called laughs.

During a 40 minute speech, Trump blasted his democratic rival Hillary Clinton on a number of issues, focusing on her ties to Wall Street, special interest groups and big money donors. “These special interests totally control Hillary Clinton, she’s their chosen representative. You can disregard anything she says, and just remember that phrase, follow the money. She’s there for only one reason, to protect her donors and collect money,” Trump said. He...

    One would think there is protocol in place for when a presidential nominee falls ill, but surprisingly there is no official guideline. In fact, until the Twenty-Fifth Amendment was passed after the Wilson presidency, there was no clear definition of what being “unable to fulfill the duties of President” meant. With Hillary Clinton’s recent health issues, we have to consider the very real possibility that our next president might fall ill, which poses the question: “What happens next?” For that answer we must look to history, and the most obvious example is Woodrow Wilson. President Wilson suffered a massive stroke...

The league has kept quiet, likely fearful that talking about the situation would lend credence to the dynamic, possibly causing other fans who are still watching the games to say, “Maybe I should stop, too.” The decline has become a mystery, for the media and surely for the NFL.

During an interview on "The Kelly File" Wednesday night, Conway complained the Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton focused too much on Trump's history with women. Conway said Trump's opinion was that "it's not nice that you're running hundreds of millions of dollars in negative ads against me, and he has a point."

That could be by a foreign power. Actually, that’s rather easy to do, so it could be by a bunch of high school kids here or anywhere in the world.

    In 2012, President Obama won re-election by almost 5 million votes, but about 47 million eligible white voters without a college degree — including 24 million men — didn’t bother to vote. In 2016, these nonvoters are part of the demographic that is most strongly in favor of Donald Trump. If Trump rouses even a fraction of these notoriously disaffected Americans — like this grease-smudged, 61-year-old first-time voter in western Pennsylvania — he could surge to victory. There’s just one catch: If we’re on the cusp of a blue-collar Great Awakening, it’s not yet showing up in the registration data....

It was all designed to make her look warm and wonderful. As the saying goes, if you can fake sincerity, you can fake anything. Trump did best when he didn't focus on himself and this is the pattern he should follow in the next two debates. As a seasoned debater, who has taken on professors and liberal thinkers on campuses...

    After Bill and Hillary Clinton’s daughter attacked GOP nominee Donald Trump for daring to mention her father’s sexual “transgressions” this week, Juanita Broaddrick – who famously accused former President Bill Clinton of raping her – took to Twitter Wednesday to deliver the bad news to Chelsea Clinton: “Your parents are not good people,” and “Your father was, and probably still is, a sexual predator.” A series of six tweets came from Broaddrick, who says Clinton raped her in a hotel room 38 years ago.

    Reuters has taken some heat in recent months for "tweaking" their polling methodology seemingly every time the data reveals "inconvenient" results for Hillary (see our previous posts on the topic here and here). But the latest Reuters/Ipsos polling "tweak" is truly amazing. Having run out of options for slyly "tweaking" questions and categories to sway respondents in their preferred direction, Reuters has apparnetly resorted to blatant poll tampering by altering their polling samples to include a disproportionate number of democrats. In their latest poll, released just two days ago, Reuters found Hillary to have a 6 point lead in a...

    American Greatness ^ | 09/28/2016 | Bill Bennett & Others
    When 56 men signed the Declaration of Independence they declared their “reliance upon divine Providence” and pledged to each their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor. Today, 125 scholars and writers have pledged to support Donald Trump for president. While we too rely upon divine Providence today, it is because of those risks taken by those men that we live in a republic where declaring support for a candidate does not imperil life or limb. But fortunes and sacred honor are always at stake, rarely more so than in a contentious election that will decide the future of this republic. We...

    Earlier during our initial review of the debate we identified something that looked entirely suspicious because it is only evidenced for one specific candidate, and one specific lectern. We initially drew attention to it as “The Cleaner”: Well, this intrigue just got a whole lot more interesting. See “The Cleaner” at work here immediately following the debate: https://twitter.com/gigi2my4/status/781122139696930816 The Cleaner has been identified as George Lewis, a former member of NBC staff: 🐸PepeTrump @fige1000 Remember the guy that took the notepad from Hillary's podium at the debate?
