  • Wire: Little Public Support for Hillary Clinton — in Liberal Brooklyn Neighborhood

    (REUTERS) One would expect voters from the heavily Democratic Brooklyn neighborhood of Cobble Hill to pick presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in the Nov. 8 general election. Just don’t expect them to advertise it. Like lawns and windowsills in liberal pockets across the country, much of the neighborhood is bereft of pro-Clinton signage in the final weeks before the election. It’s a stark contrast to the 2012 and 2008 campaigns, when President Barack Obama whipped up a frenzy of support from Democrats and his signature “Hope” and “Forward” signs were ubiquitous. The scarcity of lawn and window signs is an indication...

    The tombstone will reportedly be displayed on a raised platform along with a photo from Central Park and a gravestone rubbing. “The exhibit feels like an opportunity for pro-Trump people to come and cause trouble, so we’ll have security,” Whiteley told the paper. The Christopher Stout Gallery is opening its second year of programming with the Trump tombstone exhibit. The gallery describes itself as a “contemporary art gallery showing subversive and difficult work by New York City artists.”

    PITTSBURGH—“Running for president is a very important endeavor,” Donald Trump said. “What is more important, right?” He leaned forward on his chair, separated by a heavy black curtain in a makeshift green room from the crowd waiting to hear him speak at the Shale Insight Conference. “I am running because, number one, I think I will do a very good job. Number two, it’s really about making American great again.” He paused, as if realizing that repeating his campaign slogan might not seem genuine. “I mean that; I really do want to make America great again,” he said. “That is...

He said afterward he knew nothing about the allegations in advance.

    Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Friday criticized President Obama's veto of legislation allowing families of 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia in U.S. courts, predicting Congress will quickly overturn the decision. “This is a disappointing decision that will be swiftly and soundly overturned in Congress," Schumer, expected to be the next Senate Democratic leader, said in a statement Friday. "I believe both parties will come together next week to make JASTA the law of the land." Schumer — echoing a familiar line from supporters of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA) — added that "if the Saudis did...

Istvan awards the big hat to the player or players who best represented team spirit on the field after a game. This practice has displeased some members of MEChA de Cornell, a Mexican student group.

    Last month, while his wife was at work, and his 4-year-old son Jordan Zain slept beside him, Anthony Weiner, aka Carlos Danger, spent the evening sexting a picture of his engorged manhood to a shapely Trump supporter. Weiner got sloppy and got caught. Recently, the world’s most famous sexter was caught again. For months, while his wife Huma was busy administering CPR to Hillary Clinton, Weiner, with too much free time on his hands, was sending lewd messages to a school-aged girl. This time, the object of the sext addict’s on-line attention was a 15-year-old teenager from North Carolina.

A family friend of Ahmad Khan Rahami, the alleged perpetrator of the bombings in N.Y. and N.J., says Rahami attended the Muslim Community of New Jersey mosque and was there two weeks ago, but his overall attendance was “inconsistent.” The imam of the mosque is an official with an Islamist group named the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA).

An hour later, a rampaging Muslim terrorist began stabbing people inside a Macy’s, asking them if they were Muslim and shouting the name of “Allah,” the genocidal Islamic deity of mass murder. And that was one Saturday, two Muslim refugees and a wave of national terror 1,200 miles apart. What did Elizabeth, New Jersey and St. Cloud, Minnesota have in common?
