  • Jeb Bush: Donald Trump’s shift on immigration ‘abhorrent’

    08/31/2016 12:48:18 PM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 79 replies
    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush says Donald Trump is turning into a typical politician with his recent comments on illegal immigration, saying Mr. Trump is correct to try to reach out to new constituencies but that it’s anyone’s guess what he might actually believe. “This is all a game,” Mr. Bush said Thursday in a radio interview with WABC’s Rita Cosby. “His views will change based on the feedback he gets from a crowd, or, you know, what he thinks he has to do.” Mr. Bush, who Mr. Trump repeatedly mocked as “low energy” during the GOP presidential primary contest,...

As the former chief engineer of Boeing’s 747, Sutter is credited with leading the birth of the first widebody airliner, which ushered in the globe-shrinking age of mass air travel.

    Anthony Weiner didn’t just send his latest sexting partner a crotch shot selfie with his young son curled up next to him in bed — he boasted to the woman about using his child as a “chick magnet.” The stray-at-home dad’s stunning admission followed his repeated gripes about a lack of action in his marital bed, at one point complaining he was only having sex once every two months, according to screenshots obtained by The Post. Weiner told the woman he had dropped off the tyke “at grandpas after school,” but bellyached that the free baby-sitting “only bought me a...

    CAMBRIDGE - Four protestors who identify themselves as members of Black Lives Matter/Cambridge have chained themselves the front door of Cambridge City Hall Wednesday morning, according to Cambridge police. On social media, the protestors say they are members of Black Lives Matter/Cambridge who are protesting the lack of affordable housing in the city. About two dozen people gathered in front of City Hall, chanting several slogans, including “the people united will never be defeated’’ and “brick by brick, wall by wall, racist systems have to fall.’’ Two protestors, both women, have connected themselves to each other using U-shaped bike locks...

    Many environmental groups have come out against an initiative in Washington state that would impose the first carbon tax in the nation because it is revenue neutral.Environmental activists in Washington State running a campaign called “Carbon Washington“ successfully obtained the required number of signatures to get ballot initiative 732 (I-732) on the November ballot. I-732 would impose a carbon-dioxide tax of $25 per metric ton on fossil fuels consumed in Washington State. If the voters approve the initiative, Washington would become the first state in the nation to impose a tax on carbon-dioxide emissions from fossil fuels. The initiative aims...

    This is a little bit perplexing. Many might point to this as evidence of a deteriorating health condition. Hillary Clinton is the first and only nominee for President who never held a press conference during the entire Democrat primary race. Yet, somehow she still won the Democrat presidential nomination. Quite a remarkable feat considering the lack of engagement. Then again, she appears to have multiple advocates in the media running cover. Additionally interesting is that Secretary Clinton appears to be following the same strategy, and even, well, ‘stunningly‘, expanding the intentional lack of engagement, for the general election.

The website had previously released 2,500 internal Open Society Foundation (OSF) documents in order to “shed light on one of the most influential networks operating worldwide.” OSF is one of Soros’ networks of organizations. The leaked documents had resulted in several damaging reports about the organization. OSF had previously confirmed that the documents were legitimate.

The entire interview, plus questions asked by viewers is present at the network's Facebook page. That interview without the Facebook questions was also broadcast on PBS's NewsHour — but not quite all of it. For some reason, key portions of Stein's answer to Woodruff's final question about whether "literally ... Hillary Clinton is every bit as bad for the country as Donald Trump" are not present. Based on what was edited out, it would appear that the cutouts, at...

Movie critic Ann Hornaday won the prize for the biggest gush, comparing Obama to young Abe Lincoln: Like the warm summer day it chronicles, Southside With You possesses a mellow, languorous vibe, an infectious easygoing charm that insinuates itself gently, then seductively, as the couple at its center experiences the stirrings of what might be true love. That the two young people in question are named Barack Obama and Michelle Robinson almost feels like an afterthought in Richard Tanne’s modest but enormously...

The nominee and his campaign aides are now talking openly about requiring illegal immigrants to pay back taxes and potentially allowing those without criminal records to stay in the country — lines that Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida repeatedly used in the GOP presidential primary. Trump also says that any...

    Donald Trump called Hillary Clinton a “bigot” on Wednesday: “Hillary Clinton is a bigot who sees people of color only as votes, not as human beings worthy of a better future,” he said. The mainstream media are reacting with shock, horror, and outrage. CNN, for example, could not come up with a substantive response to the accusation, so it played a video of a woman in the audience, interpreting her facial expression as criticism of Trump. To the brainwashed, it is easier to laugh at an inconvenient truth than to think about it.

    Forget the establishment media, the rigged polls and the anti-Trump talking heads. The dirty secret of this election is that Donald Trump can win — and in a landslide. The reason is simple: America does not want a third Obama term. The only poll that truly matters is the one showing nearly 75 percent of Americans believe the country is on the wrong track. Leave aside Hillary Clinton’s fatal weaknesses and rampant criminal behavior — covertly arming and supporting ISIL, the disastrous war in Libya, Benghazi, the Clinton Foundation, pay-for-play (which got former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich 14 years in...
  • Sen. Lindsey Graham says Trump could ‘actually win

    COLUMBIA — U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham praised his former GOP presidential primary opponent, Republican nominee Donald Trump, for an improved showing this week, saying he could turn the tide on Hillary Clinton amid the email scandal that continues to plague the Democrat. “Trump is doing better in the last week,” Graham said Wednesday. “Her email scandal with the Clinton Foundation I think is a game-changer. If he could overcome his image of not having the temperament and judgments for the job, he would actually win.” Graham made the comment after he and fellow South Carolina congressional delegation members U.S. Reps....

  • Commercial flights are too ‘burdensome’ for Clinton

    08/24/2016 8:48:24 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 47 replies
    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...

    From zebra stripes to a honeycomb lattice, nature features breathtaking patterns. Now, physicists based in China have found a way to recreate these natural motifs in 3-D — using just a little electricity. Their new device discharges plasma — air and argon gas charged with electricity — or the same stuff found in neon lights. Using different voltages, the researchers were able to create various 3-D shapes in the plasma. “To experts, this work could advance the development of plasma physics,” co-inventor Lifang Dong of Hebei University told the NewsHour. “But to non-experts, it could explain a whole range of...
