    Just days after his supporters and motorcade were attacked by protesters in Minneapolis at a GOP fundraiser, the Minnesota Republican party has not submitted the names of GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump and his vice presidential nominee Mike Pence to the secretary of state’s office for the November election, it was reported Wednesday night. A check of the sample ballot listed at the website for the Minnesota secretary of state shows the tickets of Democrat Farm-Labor Hillary Clinton, Libertarian Gary Johnson, Green Jill Stein, anti-Trumper Evan McMullin and others with Socialist, Marijuana and other parties–but no Donald Trump. A check...

    The Obama administration does not believe that a special prosecutor is necessary to investigate the Clinton Foundation, according to White House press secretary Josh Earnest. He suggested that those who were calling for a special prosecutor were impugning the character of the F.B.I. and the Justice Department. “I just think it’s hard for anybody to make a very persuasive case that somehow there hasn’t been enough investigating,” Earnest said during the White House press conference today. President Barack Obama, he said, had “complete confidence” in the independent career prosecutors of the Justice Department and the F.B.I.

    The “keep it in the ground” fossil-fuel strategy described by Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton as a “done deal” would kill more than 380,000 jobs and deliver a $70 billion annual hit to the economy, according to a report released Wednesday. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Institute for 21st Century Energy found that banning fossil fuel production on public lands and offshore waters would result in a loss of $70 billion in annual GDP as well as $11.3 billion in royalties, along with massive direct and indirect job losses.

Despite plans announced earlier this week to reorganize the foundation if Hillary Clinton wins the White House in November, USA Today said the global charity must close for the Democratic presidential candidate to avoid any appearance of unethical ties.

    A liberal Court could end long-term solitary confinement. It could mandate better prison conditions in general, making it more costly to maintain mass incarceration. It could conceivably end the death penalty. It could uphold tough state campaign finance rules and start to move away from Citizens United. It could start to develop a robust right to vote and limit gerrymandering. It could strengthen abortion rights, moving toward viewing abortion rights as a matter of equal protection for women. If Donald Trump wins in November, this is all moot. But if he loses, as polls increasingly indicate, the dawn of a...

The intrusions, detected in recent months, are under investigation by the FBI and other US security agencies. Investigators so far believe that Russian intelligence is likely behind the attacks and that Russian hackers are targeting news organizations as part of a broader series of hacks that also have focused on Democratic Party organizations, the officials said.

Trump said Monday that the Department of Justice had “acted unethically” in probing Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server. He also said the Justice Department and the FBI “can’t be trusted” to investigate the foundation after declining to prosecute Clinton over the email scandal. He criticized Attorney General Loretta Lynch for meeting privately with former President Bill Clinton as the department’s probe was underway.

Lawyers for the department told a federal judge Monday that they anticipate processing and releasing the first batch of these new emails in mid-October. That raises the prospect that the new messages could become public just before November's presidential election. The department says it does not yet know what portion of the emails is related to Clinton's tenure as secretary of state.

A total of 9,144 Syrian refugees have now been resettled in FY 2016. Of these, 9,077 are Muslims.

    U.S. television star Larry King received $225,000 from Ukraine’s disgraced former ruling Party of Regions, Ukrainian journalist and politician Serhiy Leshchenko has claimed. Speaking at a press conference on Friday, Leshchenko said that he had uncovered evidence which proved that the Party of Regions had paid King using shadow assets. The longtime CNN host received the money in return for a 2011 interview with former Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov, said Sevgil Musaeva-Borovyk, the chief editor of the Ukrainskaya Pravda news website. Yanukovych fled to Russia in February 2014 following months of anti-government protests.

    The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) has been tied to HAMAS, a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization. CAIR has also been named a terrorist organization itself by US ally the United Arab Emirates (UAE) due to the fact that it is a wing of the Muslim Brotherhood, the granddaddy of all modern Sunni Jihadist organizations. Now, CAIR is conducting “outreach” to conservative groups and a major Tea Party organization in the state of Georgia. In view of this development, we thought it important to detail CAIR’s disturbing history, members, officers and ties ahead of more of its “outreach” efforts in...

    Sunday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends Weekend,” Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) pushed back on Buzzfeed report a day earlier that said Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump may have reversed course on his immigration policy proposals.

I wasn’t there, but he had a good discussion. He listened to all the different views. Look, we need a lawful system of...

    Donald Trump's recent overtures to African-Americans has been met with skepticism by many voters. (snip) Even though many voters are suspect of his comments, some African-Americans welcome his words and are supporting his presidential candidacy. "It is time to wake up, African Americans -- wake up," Trump supporter Carl Nichols, who is African-American, told ABC News at the rally in Fredericksburg Saturday. "Life in Detroit, where I am from, looks like a warzone, because of the Democrats who have been there for 50 years. It's a big mess. Let's give the man a chance. You have tried out Obama, but...

    Donald Trump is heading to November like a certain zeppelin heading to New Jersey, in a darkening sky that crackles with electricity. He is fighting crosswinds and trying new tacks — hiring the head of Breitbart News to run his campaign, trying on a new emotion (regret) in a speech on Thursday night, promising to talk more this week about immigration, his prime subject. There’s still no telling what will happen when the gasbag reaches the mooring.It could be that the polls are right, and Mr. Trump will go down in flames. But while that will solve an immediate problem,...

On Thursday, the United States sent fighter jets to head off air strikes conducted by regime planes and to protect coalition advisers, but the Syrian planes had left by...
