    Even with all the big names onstage last night, convention-to-convention, the combined rating of the DNC stumbled against Donald Trump and the RNC. Day 3 in Philadelphia was down 18% in the fast affiliates key demo from the drama of Day 3 in Cleveland when Ted Cruz refused to endorse the candidate and running mate Mike Pence spoke.
  • The Biggest Threat To Oil Prices Is The Dollar, Not A Supply Glut

    07/28/2016 9:14:52 AM PDT · by bananaman22 · 3 replies
    The glut of gasoline and other refined products has taken center stage for the oil markets, threatening to initiate a new bear market and push oil prices down below $40 per barrel for the first time in months. But while a surplus of refined products is weighing on crude prices, there could be another culprit that does not get as much publicity. Goldman Sachs says that a strong dollar deserves more blame for an oil price downturn, and further strengthening of the greenback looms as a much larger threat to prices than the gasoline glut. The U.S. Federal Reserve could...

    What a way to begin the Democratic National Committee's convention in Philadelphia. And where to start with the WikiLeaks leak of nearly 20,000 DNC emails? The emails by and between members of the DNC could us show that, no, Bernie Sanders was not paranoid when he insisted that DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and her organization, engineered and manipulated the campaign to ensure the victory of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The eruption by the Sanders supporters over her obvious bias forced Wasserman Shultz to tender her resignation a day before their convention opened, to be replaced by interim...

    Islamic supremacy is arriving in medical settings using stealth means, or what is often referred to as creeping sharia. Common themes include Muslim health care workers refusing to uphold infection control protocols, Muslim medical students refusing to study topics they deem forbidden according to Islamic law, Muslim visitors in hospitals ignoring hygiene guidelines to protect patients, and hospitals bending over backwards (or is it forwards?) to accommodate Muslim demands above and beyond anything done for members of any other religious or demographic group. Also covered are outright acts of violence perpetrated by Muslim men who attack hospital personnel. Islamic supremacy...

    Fifty animals have died of hunger in one of Venezuela's main zoos because of a chronic shortage of food. The fatalities at the Caricuao zoo in Caracas include Vietnamese pigs, tapirs, rabbits and birds, some of whom had not been fed for two weeks. In other cities in the country, zoos are reported to be in a worse situation, forced to ask for donations of fruit, vegetables and meat from local businesses. The South American nation is in the grip of a severe economic crisis which has led to food shortages and looting in some areas.

    A LEOPARD has been scared to death after a mob of villagers hunted the wild animal down and beat it with sticks. The leopard mauled ten people when a mob of villagers cornered the animal and beat it with sticks. The wild animal fought back against the locals and soon chased after dozens of other villagers. The ensuing chaos saw the leopard attack a young child while hundreds of others fled in fear. Onlookers filmed the dramatic footage as the animal attacked locals at Khajuri Pandya village in India.

The Alexandria Police Department said one of the restaurant's cooks refused to serve her while she was wearing a uniform. As the officer was standing in line at the Noodles & Company location on Duke Street in Alexandria, the department says a female cook came out from the back and told the cashier, 'You better pull me off the line, because I'm not serving that,' gesturing at the officer.

On Wednesday, Mosby announced that charges against three officers still facing trial were being dropped. Mosby gave only a statement, but had to leave without taking questions because five of the officers in the case have filed lawsuits against her. Officers Garrett Miller, Edward Nero and William Porter as well as Sgt. Alicia White and Lt. Brian Rice are suing Mosby and Maj. Samuel Cogen of the Baltimore Sheriff's Office. Cogen was the law enforcement officer who...

    Apparently conventions don’t mean much. The major party nominees remain deadlocked in our latest weekly White House Watch survey. A new Rasmussen Reports telephone and online survey finds Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton with 43% support to Republican nominee Donald Trump’s 42%. Ten percent (10%) like some other candidate, while four percent (4%) remain undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.) This is a reversal from last week when Trump had an equally insignificant 43% to 42% lead. This is, however, the first time Clinton has edged ahead of Trump in a month. The race has been neck-and-neck in Rasmussen...

    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...

Consider who Kaine is and you will understand this glaring omission. Just weeks after the September 11, 2001 sneak attack by Muslim terrorists that killed 3000 Americans, Kaine stood on a stage with Jamal Barzinji, a man named by Global Muslim Brotherhood Watch as a “founding father of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.” Between 2003 and 2005 Barzinji’s organization directly donated $43,050 to Kaines campaign for governor of Virginia....

    The Knesset passed a controversial bill that allows local Orthodox rabbinates to bar non-Orthodox Jewish conversion ceremonies in publicly funded mikvahs. The bill, which was introduced by the haredi Orthodox United Torah Judaism party and opposed by many North American Jewish leaders, was passed Monday night in a 41-35 vote, The Jerusalem Post reported. The new law will be implemented in nine months. Under the law, the municipal rabbinates can determine who may use the mikvahs, or Jewish ritual baths, in their purview. Immersion in the mikvah is part of most conversion ceremonies. The measure aims to override an Israeli...

Han Song Ryol, director-general of the U.S. affairs department at the North's Foreign Ministry, said in an interview that recent U.S. actions have put the situation on the Korean Peninsula on a war footing.

    (Some people in Murfreesboro TN need to get out more) A woman's husband said she was sexually assaulted when she was squirted with water from a toy at a hibachi restaurant. The woman, Isabelle Lassiter, and her husband, James Lassiter, called the police but refused to file charges when they arrived Monday. "It was a sexual-style assault on my wife," James Lassiter said Tuesday. The toy, used during the cook's show at Wasabi Japanese Steakhouse, was made to look like a little boy, and it shoots water when its plastic pants are pulled down. Isabelle Lassiter said she thinks the...

She said: “I think we must finally set a deadline for the EU or all EU governments: if we don’t achieve any radical reforms in five years, then the question will also be raised in Germany.” Ms Petry’s party...

    It’s hard to believe it has been almost fifty years since the infamous Tate-LaBianca murders of 1969. Unfortunately, we are reminded of these murders on too regular a basis. They were again in the news recently when Gov. Brown overruled the parole board’s recommendation to release Leslie Van Houten, one of several Manson Family members convicted of murder. Good call -- she is where she belongs. If you lived in southern California at the time, you likely have strong memories of those events. It was an unusually hot August that year, when the Tate murders hit the news. Six people...

Elmore County District Attorney Randall Houston says Ashley's last memory of her mother, Melissa Wright, was at 14-months-old. “Evidence showed that Melissa removed the racks out of the oven, turned it to broil and waited for it to heat up and then put Ashley head first into that oven,” Houston said.

    In the early 1900's French gangsters used a weapon called an Apache Revolver that functioned as a revolver, a knife and brass knuckles. The Apache operates on the principle of a pepperbox revolver using a pinfire cartridge and incorporates a fold-over knuckle duster forming the grip and also a rudimentary foldout, dual-edged knife. Due to the lack of a barrel, the revolver’s effective range is very limited, but since all of its component parts can be folded inward towards the cylinder, it was easily concealable inside a pocket. It was common to leave an empty chamber with no cartridge under...

Would it come as any surprise then that in 2016 the younger, angrier, true-believing progressives outside the Democratic National Convention would literally burn that wretched sign of “Zionist imperialism” that is the Israeli flag? In fact, such anti-Semitism masquerading as anti-Zionism represents the quintessential act of a progressive movement dedicated to...

Even Democrats acknowledge Clinton’s chances of beating GOP nominee Donald Trump in the Palmetto State are slim. But as Clinton celebrates her presidential nomination in Philadelphia, some within the party hold out hope she could pull off a historic upset. “She has a chance,”...

    For most of 2016, astronomers have been viewing a ball of hot gas billions of light years away that is radiating the energy of hundreds of billions of suns. At its heart is an object a little larger than 10 miles across. And astronomers are not entirely sure what it is. If, as they suspect, the gas ball is the result of a supernova, then it’s the most powerful supernova ever seen. Most astronomers today believe that one of the plausible reasons we have yet to detect intelligent life in the universe is due to the deadly effects of local...
  • This is what Bill Clinton wants to be called in the White House

    If Hillary Clinton wins the presidency in November, America could get its first “first laddy!” Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton said her dad is sweet on the Irish-themed title should mom Hillary become the nation’s first female president, making hubby Bill Clinton the first male White House spouse. “He likes to harken back to his Irish roots so I think he’d love to be called `first laddy,’ ” Chelsea told NBC’s “Today” show in an interview aired Thursday morning, hours ahead of her big speech for Hillary in Philadelphia. She added: “We have talked about it partly because we’ve all...

    The president plans to campaign aggressively for Mrs. Clinton this fall. Aides have largely cleared his calendar in October, and barring new crises, the White House expects Mr. Obama to be on the campaign trail almost daily leading up to Election Day. Based on what he has said, Mr. Trump would probably use the power of the Oval Office to quickly overturn Mr. Obama’s immigration actions, try to unravel the Affordable Care Act, order the Environmental Protection Agency to lift regulations on coal plants established under Mr. Obama, reimpose abortion restrictions at home and abroad, shift the focus of American...

    A former Fox News correspondent has been arrested in Virginia on charges of rape and forcible sodomy. Orlando 'Orly' Salinas, 55, who had spent 12 years reporting for Fox News in Miami, was taken into custody on Tuesday in Montgomery County, Virginia, after being indicted on charges stemming from an incident that took place in January. Court documents in the case indicate that the alleged victim was not Salinas' wife, but another woman. While the indictments, cited by The Roanoke Times, offer scant details regarding Salinas' alleged offenses, they state that the former reporter took actions against the victim by...

    Beatrix Potter was a writer of strong contradictions. A keen business woman, the first author to license fictional characters to a range of toys and household objects still on sale today, she allowed herself to be short-changed over her royalties for years. She was an expert in natural history, boiling down animal corpses to extract their skeletons so she could understand their anatomy well enough to draw them, yet she wrote stories in which rabbits wear blue jackets and hedgehogs pinafores. A huge success, she turned her back on her literary achievements in middle age to pursue a career as...

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Thursday described recent attacks in the country and across Europe as "shocking, depressing and terrifying," but she refused to back down on her open-door refugee policy that has attracted fierce criticism following recent assaults in the country. 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,...
