    Daily Mail (U.K.) ^ | July 26, 2016 | Clemence Michallon
    Anthony Weiner has sworn he would come back into politics if Donald Trump Jr ever ran for New York mayor - a pledge met with an acerbic tweet on Trump Jr's part. The former congressman is currently in Philadelphia for the Democratic National Convention. He flew there hours after calling the elder Trump a 'xenophobic, narcissistic, racist anti-Semite' on Stephen Colbert's Late Show. Weiner ended his political career after losing his seat at the US House Of Representative and the 2013 New York mayoral election to two sexting scandals. But the former congressman, whose wife Huma Abeddin is one of...
  • Old Glory’s Old News To The New Democrats As The Palestinian Flag Flies At The DNC

    Breitbart ^ | RAHEEM KASSAM
    The flag of pan-Arab nationalism, born out of violent rebellion and struggle (or jihad), was flown today on the floor of the Democratic National Convention. What it means that the flag of “Palestine” can be spotted in Philadelphia, with not an Old Glory in sight, is that the Democratic Party of America is taking a hard-left turn. Bernie Sanders delegate Ali Akın Kurnaz is being credited on Twitter with raising the flag which represents a violent struggle against the only functioning democracy in the region, Israel. This is the only reasonable interpretation of what hard-left activists attempt to dress up...

    President Barack Obama signed an executive order in 2010 applying the Hyde Amendment, which bans taxpayer funding of most abortions, to Obamacare. Five years later, the White House referred to the Hyde Amendment while defending taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood. Now, the Democrats’ party platform is calling for repeal of the measure. According to a new poll, Americans are solidly opposed to public funding of abortion, including nearly half of voters who support abortion rights, and at least four out of 10 Democrats.

"I look forward to campaigning with Debbie in Florida and helping her in her re-election bid — because as president, I will need fighters like Debbie in Congress who are ready on day one to get to work for the American people," Clinton wrote....

    THESE ARE anxious times in America. Despite a steadily, if slowly, growing economy and the absence of a major war, people remain troubled by a sense of national underperformance and myriad social ills, most recently the surge in racially tinged fatal shootings committed by law enforcement officers and against them. A new Gallup poll reports that only 17 percent of Americans feel satisfied with the way things are going, the lowest percentage since October 2013 — and down 12 points in just the past month. For many, of course, a cause of concern is Donald Trump, who accepted the Republican...

Whoopi began by asking the panel what they thought about Giuliani’s speech. Behar bluntly said, to laughter and applause, “I think he stole that speech from Mussolini.” Not to be outdone, Hostin had...

    In a far corner of southern Italy, transactions in fake currency are not only accepted by local shopkeepers, they are positively encouraged. The small Calabrian town of Gioiosa Ionica, population 7,000, is currently home to a group of asylum seekers, who are given the imitation bank notes, or "tickets" as they are known, as part of a voucher system. The refugees can spend the cash on whatever they like, but only in the town, so that local businesses benefit. Rather than featuring European architectural gems, they bear the likenesses of a collection of communists and leftist leaders - Che Guevara...

    If Mike Pence is chosen, he must drop out of the Indiana governor’s race. Indiana law does not allow a candidate’s name to appear on both the gubernatorial ballot and vice presidential ballot. To do that, either Pence or his lawyer must deliver that paperwork to the Secretary of State’s office by noon on Friday. Then, anyone else who wants to run for the governor’s seat will have the same Friday noon deadline to formally add their name. The Republican Party Committee then has 30 days to name a replacement candidate for the governor's race. A 12-vote majority of the...

Sörman, a self-described socialist and a feminist, made the observation in response to what she claimed was excessive media focus on the fact that most of the rapes in Sweden are committed by immigrants. She explained that Swedish men are brought up in a society that believes in gender equality and therefore should be...

    On average, Democrats (that’s my team*) use guns for shooting the innocent. We call that crime. On average, Republicans use guns for sporting purposes and self-defense. If you don’t believe me, you can check the statistics on the Internet that don’t exist. At least I couldn’t find any that looked credible. But we do know that race and poverty are correlated. And we know that poverty and crime are correlated. And we know that race and political affiliation are correlated. Therefore, my team (Clinton) is more likely to use guns to shoot innocent people, whereas the other team (Trump) is...

    A slot at the GOP convention used to be a career-maker — a chance to make your name on the big stage and to catch the eye of the Republican donors and activists who make or break campaigns. In the year of Trump: Not so much. With the convention less than a month away, POLITICO contacted more than 50 prominent governors, senators, and House members to gauge their interest in speaking. Only a few said they were open to it — and everyone else said they either weren’t planning on it, didn’t want to, weren’t going to Cleveland at all,...

    Former CBS News anchor Dan Rather on Sunday had some words of advice — and caution — for journalists covering presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump. Rather criticized cable news networks’ wall-to-wall coverage of the real estate mogul and warned that they may have been “complicit” in Trump’s rise to the top of the GOP field. “What I worry about is, in a way, the media is a political partner, a business partner of Donald Trump,” Rather said on CNN’s “Reliable Sources.”

    Emotions are running high in this campaign. And that—not any candidate’s policies—is the real threat to your portfolio. Here’s how to drown out the noise. Stocks will plunge if Donald Trump is elected President. And the bond market could capsize if Trump goes ahead with plans to renegotiate the national debt. Yeah, but if Hillary Clinton wins the White House, she’ll cripple the economy by hiking taxes by $1 trillion. And oh, by the way, her foreign policy will end up destroying the world. As these are actual statements made by famous investors—like billionaire Mark Cuban and Swiss investment adviser...

    UK voters shocked just about everyone when they voted Thursday to leave the European Union. The Brexit shows the weakness not only of the EU and globalization — but also of polling. And doesn’t Donald Trump love that! Wall Street too was caught completely off guard because it appeared that firms did independent polling that they believed showed the "remain" votes would win, traded the pound sterling up on that notion and then got crushed when the news came out the other way. It really was a rejection of the British establishment by the voters, with a great deal of...
