  • Trump retaliates on ‘predator’ Clinton with devastating video

    If you come after Donald Trump, he’ll come right back at you — only twice as hard. That rule was confirmed in spades Friday when the Republican presidential nominee responded to Hillary Clinton’s claim that he’s a racist and white supremacist, and he used her own words to do it. He put together a video montage of the former secretary of state and posted it to his Facebook page under the heading, “The Clinton’s are the real predators…”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukTrbi5SmkQ The video ad centers on Clinton’s use of the term “super-predators” in 1993, the first year she served as first lady.

    Jeb Bush hammered Donald Trump Thursday after the Republican presidential nominee appeared open to major shifts on his immigration platform -- several of which echoed the former Florida governor's during the GOP primary fight. "All the things that Donald Trump railed against, he seems to be morphing into," Bush said in a radio interview with Rita Cosby of WABC. "It's kind of disturbing." When the two men were competing in the Republican presidential primary, Trump advocated for deporting millions of undocumented immigrants and blasted politicians like Bush who wanted to allow some to stay and seek legal status as long...

    Actress Lindsay Lohan has demanded a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin and nearly a million dollars to appear on the popular Russian talk show Let Them Talk. The 'Mean Girls' actress’ lawyers sent a contract to the talk show’s network demanding a one-time fee of $860,000, “full and effective security” and a “fully paid suite at the Ritz Carlton” hotel, according to a report from The Hollywood Reporter. In response to Lohan’s demands, Let Them Talk host Andrei Malakhov said he hopes Lohan reconsiders and comes up with more reasonable ones.

    Instead of flying between New York and Washington, DC, like a common traveler, Hillary Clinton wanted the Air Force to fly her — because she didn’t feel well enough to fly commercial, newly released emails show. An exchange from May 4, 2009, between Clinton and her closest aide, Huma Abedin, show the former secretary of state trying to figure out how to avoid the “burdensome” shuttle. The shuttle refers to hourly commercial plane service between New York and Washington, DC. “Do you think we could get a plane for Westchester flight back tonight?” Clinton wrote in an email released this...

    More than half the people outside the government who met with Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state gave money - either personally or through companies or groups - to the Clinton Foundation. It's an extraordinary proportion indicating her possible ethics challenges if elected president. At least 85 of 154 people from private interests who met or had phone conversations scheduled with Clinton while she led the State Department donated to her family charity or pledged commitments to its international programs, according to a review of State Department calendars released so far to The Associated Press. Combined, the 85...

    Who would have thought that Donald Trump, of all people, would be addressing the fact that the black community suffers the most from a breakdown of law and order? But sanity on racial issues is sufficiently rare that it must be welcomed, from whatever source it comes.When establishment Republicans have addressed the problems of blacks at all, it has too often been in terms of what earmarked benefits can be offered in exchange for their votes. And there was very little that Republicans could offer to compete with the Democrats' whole universe of welfare state earmarks.Law and order, however, is...

    After a controversial bronze medal wrestling match in Rio, Mongolian coaches protested their disappointing result by stripping off their clothes. The 65 kilograms freestyle wrestling match between Mongolia's Mandakhnaran Ganzorig and Uzbekistan's Ikhtiyor Navruzov initially ended with a score of 7-6 in favor of Ganzorig on Sunday. Unfortunately, Mongolia ended up losing the hard-fought bronze medal after the decision was challenged by Navruzov, citing that the Mongolian athlete began celebrating with about 10 seconds left in the match rather than continuing the match with his opponent. Judges ended up ruling in favor of Uzbekistan, who took home the bronze instead....

    Hillary Clinton's campaign is having trouble finding an individual who can effectively mimic her Republican opponent as she prepares for the upcoming presidential debates, according to Campaign Manager Robby Mook. "It's very hard to find someone to mimic the reckless temperament and the hateful instincts and divisive instincts of Donald Trump," Mook told CNN's Dana Bash on Sunday. "Preparing for a debate with him is a challenging task, but Secretary Clinton is looking forward to the debate," Mook added. He suggested the debates will give Americans an opportunity to see how Clinton's "steady leadership" compares with Trump's "very reckless temperament."...

The poll of more than 800 registered voters asked which of six options made them feel the most threatened. The only option that came back with a higher percentage than Trump was radical Islamic extremism, which topped the list at 61 percent.

    YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) -- Donald Trump sparked bipartisan backlash after the Republican attacked the bereaved parents of a Muslim U.S. Army captain who spoke at the Democratic convention last week. Critics from both parties on Saturday questioned whether Trump had the empathy and understanding to be president, particularly after he questioned why mourning mother Ghazala Khan stayed silent during her husband's Thursday night address. "He was kind of trying to turn that into some kind of ridicule," Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine said after a campaign event in Pittsburgh. "It just demonstrates again kind of a temperamental unfitness. If...

    The Daily Wire ^ | July 29, 2016 | ROBERT KRAYCHIK JULY 29, 2016 Observers of Hillary Clinton over the past six months or so will have
    Observers of Hillary Clinton over the past six months or so will have noticed an incessant coughing and clearing of her throat that has plagued the former first lady across that time frame. During her headline speech on Thursday at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Clinton noticeably cleared her throat twenty-two times. In and of itself, it could be written off as temporarily being under the weather. Given its persistence, however, questions arise about the Democrats' presidential nominee. She seemed to have deliberately timed her throat clearing during manufactured applause directed by her audience managers. Watch a montage of...

    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...

    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.
