    BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Thomas Edwin Blanton Jr. was a young Ku Klux Klansman with a reputation for hating blacks in 1963, when a bomb ripped a hole in the side of 16th Street Baptist Church, killing four black girls during the civil rights movement. Today, Blanton is old and imprisoned, the last survivor among three one-time KKK members convicted of murder in the bombing. Soon, Alabama’s parole board will decide whether Blanton deserves to be free after serving 15 years of a life term for murder. The board has scheduled a hearing for Wednesday to consider parole for...

    Hillary and the federal government are determined to ensure a "fair" and "open" election this November and will stop at nothing to reverse discrimination against "oppressed" segments of the American electorate, well at least if you live in a large swing state. This morning, the WSJ reported that the Fourth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia struck down North Carolina's voter ID law just days after we wrote about Virginia's similar effort to register 200,000 "oppressed" felons. The ruling asserts that North Carolina's law violated the Voting Rights Act by discriminating against low-income and minority voters, saying: “In...

    On Friday, July 22, just as members of his party were gathering in Philadelphia to coronate Hillary Clinton as their presidential nominee, the Obama Administration once again released a sweeping gun control measure by executive fiat. This time the bad news came via the U.S. State Department’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC), which is primarily responsible for administering the Arms Export Control Act (AECA) and its implementing rules, the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). The upshot is that DDTC is labeling commercial gunsmiths as “manufacturers” for performing relatively simple work such as threading a barrel or fabricating a...

Speaking live from Kenya on British TV, Malik Obama also spoke about his relationship with Barack and claimed he has to make appointments to see him. And he told Good Morning Britain hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid that the US leader has issues with attitude. He said: "[Barack] has this attitude like 'I'm the president, I've made it, I'm the star here'. I do understand that but I'm just expressing my opinion and how I feel."

    SAO PAULO (Reuters) - Brazil's former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva and the former chief executive of investment bank Grupo BTG Pactual SA will stand trial for obstruction of justice, documents from a federal court in Brasilia showed on Friday. Lula was previously under investigation in various jurisdictions in a sprawling corruption probe focused on state-run oil company Petroleo Brasileiro SA (Petrobras) but is now officially a defendant. The case dates to last November, when former Senator Delcidio do Amaral and Andre Esteves, the founder and former CEO of BTG Pactual, were arrested for allegedly trying to stop a...

    Despite public admonishment of his Asian trade deal by some Democrats at the party’s convention this week, President Barack Obama continues to keep pushing for its approval. “No,” Eric Schultz , principal deputy White House press secretary, responded flatly Friday when asked if the Democratic National Convention jeers had convinced Obama to drop his efforts to get floor votes on his Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) after the Nov. 8 elections. The president still “believes it is good policy for American businesses and American workers,” Schultz said, adding Obama “absolutely” still wants both chambers to sign off on the proposed pact “this...

    According to preliminary ratings from Nielsen, Hillary Clinton‘s Thursday DNC address was less-watched than Donald Trump‘s RNC speech a week earlier… but not by much. In total, 30 million viewers watched Trump speak, while 28 million watched Clinton. Trump got better ratings on the Big Three networks by a slim margin (4.587 mil to 4.52 mil for NBC, 3.861 mil to 3.85 mil for ABC, and 3.80 mil to 3.65 mil for CBS). On cable networks the gap was much larger. Clinton beat Trump by roughly two million viewers on both MSNBC and CNN. But that deficit was more than...

The proof is in the numbers. Let’s compare. As of now, Hillary’s Speech on the CNN YouTube Channel only has an unbelievably pathetic 4,905 views. Compare this to Donald Trump’s Speech on the Fox News YouTube Channel , which currently has 321,030 views, 65 times more than Hillary. The bottom line is Trump is exciting and interesting to watch. He is leading a political revolution to put America first again. In contrast,...

    The property tax bill on Jeff and Roberta Price's Lincoln Park home was about $400 in 1977, the first year they lived there. It's been going up ever since but rarely with the jolt of this year's 63 percent increase. The increase, from $8,652 to $14,104, has the couple re-considering their plan to retire in the Kenmore Avenue home, where they raised their kids. They're looking at homes in Indiana "as a backup plan" for the time when Roberta retires in a few years, said Jeff, who is already retired. "We have lived in our home for almost 39 years...

    International human rights activists are complaining that new laws have introduced forced labour in Venezuela. "A new decree establishing that any employee in Venezuela can be effectively made to work in the country's fields as a way to fight the current food crisis is unlawful and effectively amounts to forced labor," Amnesty International said in a statement released on Thursday. President Nicolás Maduro signed a decree at the end of last week that gives powers to the labor ministry to order "all workers from the public and private sector with enough physical capabilities and technical know-how" to join a government...

    In hopes of promoting the narrative of a US housing recovery, one recurring thesis has been that as Millennials get older and start families, they will eventually leave their parents' basement and buy a house or shift from renting to owning. So far the facts have refused to corroborate this, and according to the latest "Housing Vacancies and Homeownership" report released on Thursday, the dream of owning a home just became even more distant. The reason: after staging a feeble rebound in late 2015, the US homeownership rate just tumbled from 63.5% to 62.9%, tied for the lowest print going...

Germany has been rattled by four attacks in the past two weeks, three of which authorities say have been carried out by asylum seekers or refugees with inspiration from Islamist extremism. The attacks have given way to mockery by some Germans as well as foreigners, who have dubbed the recent weeks of bloodshed on social media as #MerkelSommer,...

He spoke of his time in office, how the presidency has physically aged him, but how his daughters euphemistically note he now looks more "mature."

Tim Huelskamp, a Cruz ally and tea party favorite who has long been a thorn in the side of the party establishment. Cruz has rushed to Huelskamp’s aid, providing him with a valuable endorsement just weeks before the Aug. 2 primary. But members of the Texas senator’s political team are working aggressively to defeat the embattled congressman. Two of the pillars of Cruz’s political operation, the consulting firms Axiom...

    If a recent gathering in a Merced park is any sign, playing “Pokémon Go” and lamenting over the presidential candidate options for the November election are part of the life of a millennial. And that matters because millennials, which the Pew Research Center defines as people born between 1981 and 1998, hold a particularly powerful deck of cards this election. Many of them say they are exasperated with their options for president in 2016. Aaron Lequia of Merced, who plays the mobile game in local parks, said he’s struggling with how to cast his vote in November. Ever since he...

    London is on the next list of target cities for twisted jihadis, it has been claimed. Images threatening attacks in London and other major world capitals have been posted on messaging app Telegram, according to analysts at SITE Intelligence Group. One picture chillingly shows New York’s Statue of Liberty engulfed in flames but with the caption “Washington soon” - referring to the US capital 225 miles away. The threat comes as security at British churches is being ramped up amid a new terror alert after ISIS knifemen forced a French priest to kneel before slitting his throat on camera.

    I hate to be the one to rain – or even sprinkle – all over the merry Tim Kaine parade. But someone has to. It’s time to shake off the he’s-so-much-nicer-than-Hillary-and-he-speaks-Spanish euphoria to ask Kaine to explain his conduct during his final days in Virginia’s governor’s mansion. The issue concerns a convicted murderer serving life in prison and Kaine’s last-minute move to quietly spring him. We’re going to talk about Jens Soering today. Members of the national press corps ought to be asking Kaine about the Soering matter every day – at least until the veep hopeful from Virginia comes...

  • Flashback: When the Clintons Loved Russia Enough to Sell Them Our Uranium

    BREITBART ^ | July 25, 2016 | John Hayward
    The Democrats’ newfound paranoia about Russian influence on American affairs was certainly nowhere to be found when Hillary Clinton was cheerfully selling them a huge chunk of America’s uranium stockpile, right after a Russian bank paid Bill Clinton $500,000 for a speech. The Uranium One story is among the incidents detailed in Peter Schweizer’s Clinton Cash. A quick recap: Uranium One was originally a Canadian company, bought out by Russia’s state atomic energy agency, Rosatom.

  • Defend Milo Yiannopoulos Even If You Don't Want To

    I don't like Milo Yiannopoulos. The "alt-right" bad boy's menagerie of outrageous and often toxic sentiments reveal a careless attention-seeker rather than thoughtful provocateur, one seemingly not concerned with the damages caused, smugly delighted to push biased buttons and stoke hate as long as he sounds cool while doing it. Ya, I don't like Milo Yiannopoulos. All the more reason to be very careful about shutting him down. x This week Milo, or @Nero, was permanently kicked off Twitter after a barrage of racist and misogynist hate-tweets were sent to Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones. She is black, she is a...
