    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will have quite the illustrious rooting section at Monday’s presidential debate, if new reporting from Buzzfeed bears out. After Trump tweeted that he might invite “Jennifer Flowers” to sit in the front row next to Mark Cuban, an assistant to Ms. Gennifer Flowers reached out to Buzzfeed to say that the offer had been extended and accepted: An assistant to Flowers told BuzzFeed News in the past she had declined such invitations, not wanting to be a “sideshow,” but said she would forward the invite to Flowers. In an email to BuzzFeed News, Judy Stell,...

    Police pleaded with the public for help identifying a gunman who fled after killing four women and a man at a Washington state mall Friday night. As authorities determine a motive, they said Saturday that there was no immediate evidence the attack was terror-related. The suspect, dressed in a black T-shirt and black shorts, was seen on surveillance footage at the Cascade Mall in Burlington, about 65 miles north of Seattle, where he opened fire inside a Macy's department store. Authorities don't know his whereabouts or identity, but believe he is a Hispanic man in his 20s or 30s. "Hopefully...

    The American Thinker ^ | September 24, 2016 | Bruce Walker
    ~snips~ Americans will be watching the presidential debates closely not for policies or ideas, but for images and demeanor. This creates a clear opening for Donald Trump. Hillary has hidden behind flacks and party hacks and pandering and controlled media. Trump has behaved exactly the opposite way, speaking for himself, attacking party machines, and acting often unscripted. If Hillary was elected, she would be the fattest president since William Howard Taft, the shortest president since James Madison, and the second oldest president in American history. These very visible factors will quietly blend into the evaluation voters will make of...

Gen. Saad al-Harbea, the head of west Baghdad operations, said. Hundreds more have massed around the checkpoints that block the city's entrance to await the multiple security approvals required to re-enter Fallujah, which lies 40 miles (65 kilometers) west of the Iraqi capital. But the vast majority of the 300,000 people that made up the city's prewar population remain scattered across the country.

    It is common practice in Swiss schools that students shake their teachers hands at the beginning and end of each day. Two Muslim teen brothers created an uproar in April when they refused, citing their religion, to shake the hands of their female teachers. At first, school officials attempted to reach a compromise with Amer Salhani and his older brother by allowing them to refuse to shake any teacher's hand be it male or female. However, this decision was met with huge backlash in Switzerland and the international community. The decision to accommodate was eventually rescinded and now the...

Cruz has held out on the grounds that Trump is insufficiently conservative, and because Trump attacked his wife and father down the stretch of their heated battle for the Republican nomination. The senator even took the extraordinary step of declining to endorse Trump during...

    Hungarys prime minister has called for the EU to round up illegal immigrants and deport them to guarded camps on an island or North Africa. The comments are likely to further inflame tensions with other EU governments who say Budapests ultra-hard line on migration flouts both international law and fundamental European values. Viktor Orban made the comments as he lashed out at Angela Merkels refugee policy, saying it was unfair for Berlin to try to distribute migrants across EU member states. This could be an island, it could be a coastal area in North Africa, but the security and supplies...

    The third leg of the world's intractable depression is yet to come. If trade economists at the United Nations are right, the next traumatic episode may entail the greatest debt jubilee in history. It may also prove to be the definitive crisis of globalized capitalism, the demise of the liberal free-market orthodoxies promoted for almost forty years by the Bretton Woods institutions, the OECD, and the Davos fraternity. "Alarm bells have been ringing over the explosion of corporate debt levels in emerging economies, which now exceed $25 trillion. Damaging deflationary spirals cannot be ruled out," said the annual report of...

    Before dinner on July 29, 3-year-old Carter Roberts of Chesterfield, Va., seemed perfectly healthy. That evening, he vomited. When he woke up the next morning with a slight fever of 99 degrees, his mother, Robin Roberts, figured that he was coming down with a cold. The next morning, she found him collapsed on his bedroom floor. Mommy, she recalls him saying. Help me, help me. Carter could barely stand when she picked him up, and his neck was arched backward. What was most alarming, she said, is he had no control over his right arm whatsoever. In the hospital, Carter...

After the announcement of Adnanis death, Rita Katz, of Site Intelligence group, tweeted that ISIS supporters calling for lone wolf attacks cite Adnani more than any other terrorist. In his last public speech, Adnani...

    Texas, which has taken in more refugees than any state in the nation over the past year, is threatening to leave the federal refugee program if the Obama administration does not meet its security demands. The dispute comes as the Obama administration has announced a new goal of resettling 110,000 refugees in the United States in the coming year, including an unspecified increase in the number from Syria. In a letter Wednesday to Robert Carey, director of the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement, the Texas Health and Human Services Commission said that unless Washington "unconditionally" approves the state's new plan...

    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said Wednesday that he was troubled by the controversial shooting of Terence Crutcher, 40, by Tulsa police officer Betty Shelby last Friday because he looked like he did "everything he was supposed to do" but was killed anyway.

That man went to the car, hands up, put his hands on the car, I mean to me it looked like he did everything he was supposed to do," said Trump in remarks at a town hall style event...

    Hillary Clinton made a very problematic and insultingly othering joke about homeless on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. The host handed his guest a brown paper bag full of props to set up his jokes, and Clinton observed that the bag was pretty beat up and looks like a homeless persons. No. She. Didnt. [VIDEO AT LINK] Social media users were not impressed with multimillionaire (and multiple home-owner) Hillary Clintons condescending attitude toward real estate-challenged Americans. Sarmo @jordansarmo It's like a homeless persons bag? Wow... Go home Hillary #NeverHillary https://twitter.com/roark__/status/778241472739024896 10:52 AM - 20 Sep 2016
