    Media in the West, especially those in the United States, has been recently focusing coverage on one other American female politician: Huma Abedin, the director of Hillary Clinton's campaign. A Muslim woman of Indian origins, she’s been accused of her affiliations to the “Muslim Brotherhood” group. In 1976, she was born in Kalamazoo city, Michigan. Her father Syed Zaynul Abedin – an Indian –and mother Saleha – a Pakistani had just immigrated to the US and then moved to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia for several years. Her parents then moved back to the US again. Dr. Abedin founded the Institute of...

    Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) delivers a speech during the opening of the second day of the Republican National Convention on July 19, 2016 at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio. An estimated 50,000 people are expected in Cleveland, including hundreds of protesters and members of the media. The four-day Republican National Convention kicked off on July 18. Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions is going after a top immigration official who earlier admitted the U.S. government has invited future terrorists into American communities, the Obama administration’s much-touted “vetting process” aside. “The fact is—anybody that understands the challenge they face to...

    A middle school counselor is being hailed as a hero after talking a student at Sycamore Middle School from shooting other students. Molly Hudgens spoke with the 14-year-old student who entered the building for about 45 minutes before the student gave her the gun. "She was an amazingly brave person to be in there that long with this young man," said Cheatham County Sheriff Mike Breedlove at a press conference on Thursday. "She was able to diffuse the whole situation." Breedlove praised the training that school employees receive to ending the situation. "Through her training, she was able to get...

    The reports to the police had one thing in common with the circus act involving an improbable number of clowns emerging from a small car. They just kept coming, and coming, and coming, across multiple states. Clowns in vans. Clowns in the woods. Clowns lurking in the shadows. Clowns chasing people or doing crimes. But in recent weeks, steady police work has turned the news around, with 12 people facing charges of making false reports or threats, or chasing people, the authorities said. Other cases seem attributable to children with overactive imaginations, teenagers pulling pranks and others with their own...

    The Republican National Committee wants to know why Bill Clinton’s former adviser purchased the house in California that Bill Clinton’s black sheep half-brother Roger lives in. An RNC memo from chief strategist Sean Spicer spells out the mystery: Justin Cooper owns an almost $900,000 home in the lush hills of an upscale Los Angeles suburb. But interestingly enough, he doesn’t live there. Roger Clinton does. Cooper is Bill Clinton’s body man turned wheeler-dealer. He’s gone from making a modest salary working in the White House to setting up an LLC just to buy a home for the president’s brother to...

    Hurricane Matthew is big, bad and just downright scary, and we await the long anticipated sharp turn northward. Jamaica is completing final storm preparations. All interests in the Eastern U.S. and Bahamas should be carefully watching the track of Mighty Matthew. Ripped straight from the NHC Discussion page: Matthew remains south of a low-to mid-level ridge over the western Atlantic. The dynamical models forecast this ridge to weaken over the next 72 hours as a mid- to upper-level trough develops over the Gulf of Mexico. This evolution should cause Matthew to turn northwestward after 24 hours and northward by 48-72...

    It's been months since the passing of conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, but Democrats are still seemingly celebrating his death because it paves the way for their political purposes. At The Atlantic’s Washington Ideas Forum on Thursday, Labor Secretary Tom Perez casually noted that Scalia's death helped pave the way for union membership across the country. ... Unfortunately, Perez's comments are not isolated. In August, Ohio Senate Candidate Ted Strickland actually said “the death of Scalia saved labor” at an AFL-CIO event.

    Since Monday night’s presidential debate, Donald Trump’s alleged sexism has predictably become a focal point of the Hillary Clinton campaign. The former secretary of state accused Mr. Trump of being a sexist fat-shamer whose acts have disqualified him from holding the highest office in the land. Trump, politicking horrifically, only deepened the wound by vocalizing Hillary’s claim in his and his surrogates’ subsequent interviews.But, unlike Trump was able to point out, Hillary is no “saint girl” either. Mrs. Clinton has been accused of threatening, smearing and targeting women her husband has sexually assaulted or carried out consensual affairs with. 1. Hillary...

Before answering, a quick note on why providing clarity around a relatively simple question: It's rare that cooler heads can prevail in this media world we live in. Lines in the sand have never been drawn between blue and red media as vividly as they are now. And as a result, simple logic and lucidity is supplied less and less to drawing a verdict on whether a story is true or not. Exhibit A today is the aforementioned question: Did Trump — as he insists — oppose the Iraq War?...

Laura Parson, a student in the university’s education department, reviewed eight science class syllabi at a “Midwest public university” and said she discovered in them a hidden hostility to women...

In 1975, Clinton served as the defense lawyer for Thomas Alfred Taylor, a 41-year-old factory worker accused of raping Shelton after luring her to his car. Taylor pleaded down to 'unlawful fondling of a minor' and served less than a year in prison after Clinton was able to block the admission of forensic evidence that linked her client to the crime. Shelton said Clinton accused her during the case of 'seeking out older men', and demanded that...

    A grand jury on Thursday accused former state Senate candidate Carlos Villanueva of illegally applying for absentee ballots in the names of three dead people in 2014. In an interview, Villanueva said he didn’t break the law and will plead not guilty. He was simply testing the election system, he said, to make sure safeguards were in place to prevent people from voting under the names of dead people. Election officials should have flagged the requests and refused to mail the ballots, he said. “I would never do anything criminal,” Villanueva said. “That is not me.”

As The New York Times reported Monday, until relatively recently it was rare to hear people referred to as "globalists" but the label is more common now. And while many globalists claim to have the interests of the entire world at heart, the irony is that they have become a tribe of sorts; and they are a...

His mutinous discussion then concluded, sounding very Trumpian, by noting that The Fed "shouldn't be afraid a recession might come," exclaiming "there's a real problem here" with The Fed.

    TEHRAN, Iran — Before being elected president of Iran in June 2013, Hassan Rouhani was known as a close friend and constant companion of Expediency Council Chairman Ayatollah Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani. Rouhani’s management of the initial round of nuclear negotiations with the West — the failed engagement with Britain, France and Germany over 2003-2005 — earned him the nickname “the Diplomat Sheikh.” However, throughout his career, including when he was secretary of the Supreme National Security Council during the presidency of Mohammad Khatami, when he was removed from this post by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and finally when he started...

    Saudi ministers will see a drop in their salaries of 20 percent, while members of Shura council’s wages are to be 15 percent less.

During its meeting the Saudi cabinet also agreed to cancel the payment of bonuses, allowances, rewards and financial benefits. According to statistics, a minister’s salary amounts to 51,750 Saudi Riyals (SAR) – that’s nearly $13,800. But with the wage cut this figure will be reduced to 41,400SAR ($11,034). There are 143 Ministers, with a...
