Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson holds 9% of the popular vote, and the Green Party’s Jill Stein gets 2%.

    A U.S. Court of Appeals on Friday blocked an effort by Alabama, Georgia and Kansas for voters to furnish proof of citizenship when registering at the polls, which opponents say disenfranchises voters, especially minorities. The decision effectively strikes down a rule that requires voters in the three states to provide proof they are United States citizens. Elsewhere, voters only need swear that they are citizens in order to cast a ballot. "With just weeks to go before a critical presidential election, we are grateful to the court of appeals for stopping this thinly veiled discrimination in its tracks," Chris Carson,...

    By now, there’s little doubt in anyone’s mind that smoking is dangerous both to smokers and those around them, though that doesn’t stop 40 million American adults from lighting up almost every day. Banning cigarettes outright might encourage people to kick the habit, but a blanket prohibition on smoking seems unlikely to happen any time soon. Rather than focusing on banning cigarettes themselves, states (along with cities and the federal government) have passed various tobacco laws making it more difficult for people to smoke. They’ve raised taxes on tobacco, banned smoking in many public and private spaces, and required warning...

The 91-year-old Carter spoke with The Associated Press on the site of a Habitat for Humanity construction project in Memphis. Carter, considered a worldwide ambassador for Habitat for Humanity, said he doesn’t like to advocate for particular issues because he works equally with Republicans, Democrats and people of many religious beliefs in his role with the home building charity. But he did say that “everybody knows that I’m a Democrat, and...

    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...

From 1980 through 2004, with two notable exceptions – Jimmy Carter’s home state of Georgia in 1980 and a few states during southern-boy Bill Clinton’s two runs – Republicans enjoyed complete dominance in the swath of states from Virginia to Texas That may be changing.

    Another day – another blatant example of the media manipulating polls to discourage Trump voters. Reuters was caught red-handed changing poll results to erase a Trump lead last week. Now the Atlanta Journal Constitution does the same pretending that Hillary is going to win Georgia. Polling firms contact registered voters. The number of voters who answer the phone and agree to the survey are put into a number called the “unweighted base.” The polling firm then applies their own “formula” based on who they think is going to vote. In the example below, 278 Republicans in Georgia answered the phone...

    The complaint came in July, from a man who said he drove by a Georgia home and spotted the flag flying out front. It was a Confederate flag, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported, and a Roswell Police Department officer lived at the home. “It is very difficult to explain to my daughter that we should trust our police,” the man wrote in an email, according to the newspaper. “But in the same sentiment if I were to ever be pulled over or some situation where my family needs the police to protect and serve, my first thought/fear is that it may...

This time, Johnson is under fire for his comments on Jewish settlers in Israel. “There has been a steady, almost like termites can get into a residence and eat before you know that you’ve been eaten up and you fall in on yourself, there has been settlement activity that has marched forward with impunity and at an ever increasing rate to the...
