    Leaked emails show the Democratic National Committee scrambled this spring to conceal the details of a joint fundraising arrangement with Hillary Clinton that funneled money through state Democratic parties. During the three-month period when the DNC was working to spin the situation, state parties kept less than one half of one percent of the $82 million raised through the arrangement — validating concerns raised by campaign finance watchdogs, state party allies and Bernie Sanders supporters.

    It's common for presidential candidates to get a bump from their conventions, and two new polls Monday suggest Donald Trump did indeed get that. But the new polls don't just show Trump's stock rising (however temporarily that may be); they also have some very bad news for Hillary Clinton and her already-declining personal image. Indeed, politically, she's doing as bad as she ever has — if not worse.

    Philadelphia — A new Clinton administration would pursue a bill to legalize illegal immigrants in “the first 100 days” of her tenure, vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine told Spanish-language network Telemundo in an interview Monday, presenting a deep contrast with Republicans. Mr. Kaine also predicted that House Republicans, who stopped President Obama’s last bid for legalization in 2013, will reverse themselves next year and said House Speaker Paul D. Ryan will lead the GOP to embrace legalization. “Paul Ryan and the other leaders of his party are going to understand that if they want a future for their party they

Thus, according to the law, the DNC twice violated Section 8 U.S. Code 1324. At 8:04pm local time, the DNC invited an illegal alien to accompany her daughter to tout Hillary Clinton for president.

    Instead, Obama has ignored the people of Iran, a population friendly to the United States and its ideals. His administration even declared the 2009 Green Movement - a popular protest against a probably-rigged presidential election - an internal affair of Iran that warranted no American input. He has failed to do anything for the Iranians, and has even tacitly betrayed them by negotiating with and legitimizing their theocratic government. The catastrophic nuclear deal with the rulers of Iran represented the latest in Obama's long series of failures in relation to the country. While it is true that the economic sanctions...

    The U.S. news media has been almost completely entranced by the pontificating and posturing at the conventions of its two major political parties the past week or so.

    (CNN)The bounce is back. Donald Trump comes out of his convention ahead of Hillary Clinton in the race for the White House, topping her 44% to 39% in a four-way matchup including Gary Johnson (9%) and Jill Stein (3%) and by three points in a two-way head-to-head, 48% to 45%. That latter finding represents a 6-point convention bounce for Trump, which are traditionally measured in two-way matchups.

Based on history rather than polls or demographics, he insists Donald Trump will win the presidential race—and win easily. History is an argument not often heard in presidential elections except in one case: the likelihood that after one party holds the White House for eight years, that party probably won't win four more years. The one exception in the past half-century was the election of George H.W. Bush...

    The deeply pessimistic outlook that Donald Trump offered at this week's Republican National Convention doesn't match reality, President Barack Obama insisted on Friday. Noting he didn't watch Trump's prime-time acceptance speech on Thursday -- "I've got a lot of stuff to do" -- Obama said he read news coverage of the remarks. And he said they didn't match most Americans' experiences. "This idea that America is somehow on the verge of collapse, this vision of violence and chaos everywhere, doesn't really jibe with the experience of most people," Obama said during a press conference in the White House East Room...

    Russian warplanes reportedly bombed a secret military base in Syria used by elite American and British forces last month. The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that the Russian strike on the CIA-linked site was part of a campaign by Russia to pressure the White House to agree to closer cooperation in the Syrian skies, U.S. military and intelligence officials said. Despite the fact that some forces could have been killed and the bombing dampened relations between Russia and the Pentagon and CIA, the White House and State Department still persued a compromise. The U.S. and Russia agreed to a pact...

    On the final night of a convention filled with mishaps -- of the plagiarism, non-endorsement varieties -- Donald Trump painted a bleak picture of America, even as he officially accepted the Republican party's nomination for presidency. His name was stamped in bold font across the convention hall jumbotron as he walked on stage. "I humbly and gratefully accept your nomination for the presidency of the United States," Trump began his speech. He paused for a moment before departing from his prepared remarks to join the audience in chanting: "USA! USA! USA!" At this point, Trump couldn't help but gloat a...

    The three networks on Thursday night immediately derided Donald Trump’s “dark speech” as one coming from a “vengeful” “demagogue.” On NBC, Tom Brokaw allowed that “some” will see Trump as on a “white horse who will lead them to some kind of sanctuary and then pull the drawbridge up.” But he sneered, “Others looking in are going to see someone they will only think as a demagogue of some kind.”

    Donald Trump accepted the nomination of the Republican Party’s 2016 presidential race by pledging to bring America “Peace, prosperity, law and order.” We will be a country of generosity and warmth,” he said. “But we will also be a country of law and order.” Trump said attacks on police and terrorism at home and abroad “threaten our very way of life. Any politicians who does not grasp this danger is not fit to lead our country.” “I have a message for all of you: the crime and violence that today afflicts our nation will soon come to an end,” he...
