    Nikki Johnson-Huston: This election cycle I can tell you I’ve spoken with many black voters who say they are going to vote for Donald Trump. I can tell you in 2012 and 2008 I didn’t meet one African-American who said they would. Bill O’Reilly: So you think he will do better than Romney did? Nikki Johnson-Huston: Absolutely. Absolutely… I think the dirty little secret people aren’t talking about is the concerns of the working class, the white working class are also the same concerns the black working class have. Good jobs. Being able to take care of your family. Opportunity...

    Extremely distressing news from the Guardian by Luke Harding about the great Vladimir Bukovsky (above): The Russian dissident Vladimir Bukovsky has been on hunger strike at his home in Cambridge for more than a week in protest at what he calls the “Kafkaesque” British judicial system. Bukovsky was charged last year with child pornography offences. He strenuously denies the allegations. In August he took the unusual step of suing the Crown Prosecution Service for libel: he is seeking £100,000 in damages and claims the CPS has “falsely and maliciously” hurt his reputation. Jenny Hopkins, the CPS’s chief crown prosecutor for...

    Latino activists said they expect more large protests as Donald Trump moves his presidential campaign into California. Trump faced large and hostile demonstrations outside a rally Thursday night in Costa Mesa and at the Burlingame hotel where he delivered a speech to the California Republican Convention on Friday. “I think it’s going to get worse if he gets the nomination and is the front-runner. I think it’s going to escalate,” said Luis Serrano, an organizer with California Immigration Youth Justice Alliance. “We’re going to keep showing up and standing against the actions and the hate Donald Trump is creating.

    Two black students at Salisbury University drew a stick figure hanging from a noose on a whiteboard in the taxpayer-funded school’s library, police say. The image also featured the word “Nigger!” (with the exclamation point) and the hashtag #WhitePower. The hoax incident caused great calamity on the 8,657-student campus in Salisbury, Md. The Salisbury University Police Department initiated a hate-crime investigation. However, upon learning that the unidentified students are black, authorities chose to file no charges, reports The Daily Times, a local newspaper. The racist image appeared inside Blackwell Library on April 10, around the time of the school’s eighth...

    The Mexican government's pledge to tackle graft suffered a setback on Friday when Congress entered its summer recess having failed to pass anti-corruption legislation that has been stuck in political limbo for months. Harried by accusations of corruption, President Enrique Pena Nieto's government last May passed a reform to tighten oversight of public officials, and create a special anti-graft prosecutor. Those changes were dependent on secondary legislation meant to pass in a year, yet by the end of April, his centrist Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) had only submitted proposals for five of the seven laws the package comprises. The opposition...

"This is unacceptable," Ajaccio mayor Laurent Marcangeli told iTELE newschannel. "Those sites are not sufficiently protected." In late December, the island was rocked by days of racial tension after firemen in Ajaccio were attacked on a housing estate with a large immigrant...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has badly underperformed in 2016 compared with her first run for president in 2008, a new data analysis done exclusively by Breitbart News shows. It’s particularly telling that she’s gotten fewer votes in 2016 than she did in 2008, especially because of the fact that the 2008 race was a three-way race for some time between Clinton, now President Barack Obama, and ex-Sen. John Edwards. She was, despite being the frontrunner for some time, the ultimate loser of that race—and she got more votes that year in a much more competitive primary that she...

    This mild, short winter means most of Minnesota's tick population survived. Even though it's only early March, the disease-carry blacklegged ticks, also known as deer ticks, are already out and active. "We know they can be active when the temperatures are in the mid -to upper-30s, so that could be today," University of Minnesota Entomologist Jeff Hahn said. "They are out there, and we have already seen them looking for hosts," he said. Blacklegged ticks are becoming more of a problem here in the Twin Cities metro. As a result, the number of reported cases of Lyme disease are on...

    Israel: Trump Is A Global Security ThreatBy Herb Brandon Israel News AgencyJerusalem, Israel — April 29, 2016 … Security analysts in Israel have long believed that Donald Trump’s candidacy was not real. It was started and restarted in recent years. Perhaps an excellent marketing campaign to brand his real estate properties. But as Trump now allocates more of his own money (actually not his, but being loaned to Trump with online donations) his demeanor as an aggressive, serious candidate is now transparent. His lack of seriousness in addressing both domestic and foreign issues is anything but serious. “Most alarming is...

The infection, caused by the Elizabethkingia anophelis bacteria, has killed 17 people in Wisconsin since November and just claimed a life in Michigan, the Detroit News reports. Elizabethkingia is often found in water and soil, but – until now – has seldom caused infections. So far, 54 Wisconsin residents have contracted the infection, CNN reports.

"If you were seeing someone else getting abused, wouldn't you want to step in?" Hughes said.

    Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) officials have accumulated at least $6.3 billion in more than 1,300 obscure spending accounts akin to slush funds that are essentially beyond congressional, media and public scrutiny. The accounts – which were created through EPA’s Superfund program – are not technically secret because the agency officially acknowledges their existence. But getting concrete details about deposits and expenditures is extremely difficult. The EPA deposited more than $6.3 billion into an estimated 1,308 special accounts between 1990 and 2015, according to the agency’s website, and has spent more than half of the total. The agency doesn’t publicly report...

In response to a query from TV Newser, Fox issued a terse statement: “Issues have arisen regarding Andrea’s contract, and Fox News Channel has determined it best that she take some time off. She is still under contract with the network.” That opens the question of what could have changed regarding her contract all of a sudden.

It is against the law for California to allow illegal immigrants to enroll in Covered California, the state’s Obamacare health insurance exchange, Sally C. Pipes, president and CEO of the pro-free-market Pacific Research Institute, told The Daily Signal in an emailed response.

    For decades, American political math has revolved around the Northeast – once a bastion of moderate Republicanism – being monolithically Democratic. Donald Trump's nationalist platform is forcing a political realignment the likes of which hasn't been seen since the 1980's. For all their chest-pounding and back-patting about living in “the capital of the world,” New Yorkers themselves are pretty irrelevant on the national political scene. The Empire State hasn’t produced a major politician since Franklin Roosevelt; no, carpetbaggers like Hillary Clinton and Bobby Kennedy don’t count.

A 'TICKING TIME BOMB' On any ranked list of nasty diseases transmitted by mosquitoes, ticks and fleas in the Western world, Borrelia burgdorferi, would have to lie near the top. These bacteria cause Lyme disease, which was first recognised in the US in the early 1970s among patients in Lyme, Connecticut. However, the oldest known case was the Ötzi the Tyrolean Iceman - a 5,300-year-old Copper-age mummified individual - discovered in the Italian Alps.

    But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: Ephesians 4:15 KJV Rush you made this conflict yourself by teaching your listeners to think for themselves and they are. You have circled the wagons for Ted Cruz with the rest of the conservative media while a majority of your listeners have chosen Donald Trump. They have heard all of your arguments for your preferred candidate and have logically decided he is not as good a choice as Trump. The disappointing part is after your fans have stuck through thick...

    Donald Trump supporters are a generally happy bunch... The Cruz campaign in Indiana is in a state of collapse and freefall. By the end of the weekend you can expect the narrative to shift, and the campaign will be pointing fingers toward California (June 7th) because their impending defeat is looming ever more dangerous. Before getting to a recent poll, lets take a look at the current landscape. Senator Ted Cruz and Carly Fiorina spoke at a campaign rally in South Bend Indiana. In a venue capable of holding more than 2,000 only a few hundred showed up... That’s the...

    "What have you been smoking?” said a partner in a New York law firm to me in early January after I asserted in front of a room full of Upper East Side liberals that “Trump would win the nomination.” Others hooted me for holding that “closeted Trump supporters” exist in the disaffected corners of American life and that Trump would enjoy a reverse Bradley effect. Last Christmas I ran into Newt Gingrich after Mass in Washington, D.C., and for the heck of it said to him, “So what job do you want in the Trump administration?” He looked at me...

    Two Congressmen elected in the Tea Party wave election of 2010 are battling to be the Republican nominee for the US Senate in Indiana. Congressman Rep. Marlin Stutzman and Congressman Rep. Todd Young have taken two very different courses since joining the House of Representatives nearly six years ago. Congressman Stutzman has been a standout member of conservative Congressman Rep. Jim Jordan’s House Freedom Caucus and is endorsed by bulwark conservatives like Senator Sen. Rand Paul and Senator Sen. Mike Lee. Congressman Young, on the other hand, is part of the “No Labels” group and is being supported by Senate...

    California politicians have voted down a proposal to designate May 26 - the actor's birthday - as John Wayne Day. The idea was rejected after some said Wayne had made racist comments against blacks and Native Americans. The resolution for John Wayne Day was submitted by Assemblyman Matthew Harper, who described Wayne as the "prototypical American Hero, symbolizing such traits as self-reliance, grace under pressure, resolve and patriotism." But Harper's colleague Lorena Gonzalez said Wayne's movies showed a lot of Native Americans being killed and that they sanctioned the white occupation of the continent. Assemblyman Luis Alejo also complained that...

    Sympathy and money for the Rhodens dried up as soon as it was revealed they were selling marijuana. Even worse, most have ignored victim Hannah Gilley and her own family. PIKETON, Ohio — A family murdered for no apparent reason evokes a lot of sympathy from a community. Unless that family was dealing drugs. Drugs are so prevalent in this rural swath of the country that highway signs provide drivers with a number to report impaired—not drunk—drivers. So less than a week after this community rallied to support the families of the eight people shot to death in their beds...

    A Russian official has criticized Washington's lack of authorization from Syria to deploy troops. The UN warned Damascus and Moscow of increased violence against civilians after a hospital was bombed, leaving 30 dead. Moscow sees the deployment of an additional 250 US military personnel in Syria as an affront to Damascus' territorial sovereignty, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov told Russia's state-owned TASS news agency on Friday. "If we are talking from the position of the foreign minister, we - of course - cannot not be concerned over the fact that the US carries out such actions without coordination with...

    If it were possible to squeeze a bit more respect into an already overflowing perspective therein, well this just does the trick. The moonbat protesters block the streets leading to the California venue where Donald Trump was giving a keynote address. Undeterred, he gets out of the vehicle, hops a fence, and walks in. Like a boss.

    Iraqi officials have reportedly revoked the broadcaster's license, marking the third time Al Jazeera has been banned in Iraq. The news organization says it was told it had violated codes of conduct and other rules. The Qatar-based news organization on Wednesday said its bureau in Baghdad had been shut down after the government accused it of violating laws. According to the pan-Arab broadcaster, Iraq's Communications and Media Commission (CMC) accused the company of "violations of the official codes of conduct and broadcasting rules and regulations." Those rules and regulations were issued in 2014 to regulate media coverage of the "war...
