    JACKSONVILLE — Across from a Popeyes on the crowded, flat University Boulevard, a half-dozen protesters in suspenders and straw hats cluster by a bus stop. They clutch rosaries and tilt posters toward drivers headed for the powder blue building with tinted windows. We are praying for you. Pregnant? Let us help you. The parking lot at A Woman’s Choice of Jacksonville is private, set back, removed from the whoosh of passing cars and the evangelism of strangers. Still, sometimes women walk up the steps crying about the pictures of fetuses. Six days a week, they enter the quiet cool of...
  • Look Out, Democrats: Trump Surges to All-Time High in Latest WaPo/ABC Poll, And That's Not All...

    President Trump's job approval rating has jumped to 47 percent in a new poll from the Washington Post and ABC News, his highest-ever mark in the series. He is only three points underwater (47/50) among registered voters, according to the numbers. As usual, there are red flags for Team Trump peppered throughout the data -- but some of the top lines suggest that if the US economy remains in strong shape one year from now, the incumbent will be formidable, in spite of his perennially mediocre-to-poor public approval levels. In this snapshot, Trump's standing is essentially the same as Barack...
  • Massive Bitcoin Whale Triggered BTC Surge With $100 Million Order, Says Crypto Investment Firm CEO

    The CEO of cryptocurrency firm BCB Group says Bitcoin’s massive pump was triggered by a single Bitcoin whale, in a coordinated effort to buy nearly $100 million worth of BTC across three crypto exchanges. Oliver von Landsberg-Sadie told Reuters a 20,000 BTC buying spree executed simultaneously on Coinbase, Kraken and Bitstamp is largely responsible for the surge, which briefly boosted the price of BTC above $5,000.“There has been a single order that has been algorithmically-managed across these three venues, of around 20,000 BTC. If you look at the volumes on each of those three exchanges – there were in-concert, synchronized, units of...

    Sen. John McCain in his new memoir makes the confession that the Iraq War was a "mistake" and says he shoulders part of the blame, Vox reported Friday. He explained the Iraq War "can't be judged as anything other than a mistake, a very serious one, and I have to accept my share of the blame for it." McCain was a steadfast supporter of the initiative to go to war with Iraq during the administration of former President George W. Bush. "I came out of the Vietnam War convinced that frankly we could have won, and we had it won,"...

    Turkey says it is facing a new wave of refugees with the arrival in the country of 30,000 Afghans in the last three months. Some 7000 have been forced to return home, an act criticised by some human rights groups, but Turkey says if the trend continues there could be the double of last year's nearly 50,000 Afghans needing aid and shelter. "I will go to Sivas and work there if there is a job. I have to care about our house back home, I have to look after my parents There is a war in Afghanistan, and fighting, but...

    Britain’s factories are growing at their fastest pace in more than three years, helped by the fall in the value of the pound after the Brexit vote and a recovery in core markets in Europe, a survey showed on Monday. The survey, by manufacturing lobby group EEF and consultancy BDO, added to signs that British factories are enjoying a growth spurt, something that Brexit supporters said would be one of the early benefits of leaving the European Union. […] “The post-referendum wobble that defined UK manufacturing’s performance in the second half of 2016 has been left firmly behind with manufacturers...
  • 'Obama's Favorite General' Stripped Of Security Clearance Amid Leak Investigation

    Retired Marine Gen. James "Hoss" Cartwright has reportedly lost his security clearance as an investigation into his involvement in national security leaks continues, Foreign Policy reports. Cartwright, a retired four-star general who served for 40 years and last served on the Joint Chiefs, has been the subject of an ongoing investigation into an alleged leak of classified information of the "Stuxnet" virus that targeted and temporarily disabled Iran's nuclear facilities in 2010. The general's legal team has called that assertion "preposterous." Gordon Lubold of FP reports that multiple current and former administration sources said Cartwright lost his clearance earlier this...

    Newsbusters ^ | 5/1/14 | staff
    MRC president Brent Bozell appeared on “The Kelly File” with substitute host Martha MacCallum to discuss new e-mails about Benghazi and Fox News coverage of Benghazi. The e-mails are between State Department PR operative Victoria Nuland and friendly Associated Press reporter Matt Lee, discussing the alleged “BS” on Fox during “The O’Reilly Factor” on September 13, 2012, two days after the consulate attacks. Bozell thought the Obama publicist and the AP reporter sounded way too much like each other. (Video, transcript below)

    The southwest border has cracked open over the last year as illegal immigrants into the U.S. spiked some 23 percent, according to the latest Homeland Security numbers released Monday. Nearly 409,000 illegal immigrants were nabbed at the border in fiscal 2016 — up from about 331,000 a year earlier — and Homeland Security officials say the increased arrests also means an increase in the number that are sneaking by them. Worse yet, the number of illegal immigrants traveling as families, fleeing rough conditions in Central America and enticed by the promise of lax enforcement in the U.S., reached a record...

    In his first public appearance after the Presidential debate at Hofstra University on Monday, Donald Trump was welcomed by tens of thousands of enthusiastic supporters to a Florida airplane hanger. Trump’s supporters waited in long lines in the rain and lightning for hours to cheer on Trump. Even after the hanger had filled up, it took more than six minutes to video the whole line.

    Yesterday, we highlighted Hillary's growing "Millennial Problem" pointing out that her support among young voters seemingly collapsed at the same time she took her 9/11 "stumble" off the sidewalk (see: "Hillary's Growing "Millennial Problem" Forces A Reset"). In fact, the collapse is reflected in the Real Clear Politics average of national polls, which shows Clinton's lead has now been reduced to the smallest margin since the DNC. But, according to the latest polling data from the USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times daily tracking poll, Millennial voters aren't the only demographic hurting Clinton. First, the overall daily poll, which tracks 3,000 U.S....

    When Trump was supposedly low in the polls, the establishment was laying low like their ill candidate, Hillary Clinton. Why upset the applecart? Trump has surged. Many of us believed it was much closer before than was being reported, but we also believe Trump has surged. Those who considered him leading would now see him beyond the margin of error out front. Is there proof of this beyond the demographically challenged polls? Yes! There is. The rope-a-dope strategy of the establishment has been set aside and they have renewed their attack with a vengeance. From every corner we're seeing again...

    The Trump Bump has arrived. After wrapping up an acutely fractious primary in which Donald Trump and his opponents lobbed scores of personal, playground insults at one another, the presumptive GOP nominee has quickly unified the vast majority of Republican voters around one goal: defeating Hillary Clinton, his prospective Democratic opponent. Entering the general election trailing by about 7 points, Trump has rapidly erased most of that gap: As of Friday, Clinton’s advantage was down to roughly 2 points, according to the HuffPost Pollster average. And some polls, like a Fox News survey out on Wednesday, show Trump inching ahead...

    In 2010 Vice President Joe Biden said Iraq was going to be one of the Obama administration’s great accomplishments. “I’m very optimistic about Iraq and it’s going to be one of the great achievements of this administration.” (Video) Biden was able to make these comments after the Bush surge resulted in enormous reduction in violence, an increase in GDP, peak oil production, increased electricity rates, a free press and democratic elections. But that all changed after Barack Obama withdrew US troops from Iraq in 2011. Since then, ISIS took over one-third of the country and initiated a genocide of Iraqi...

    AMMAN, Jordan — The first Syrian family to be resettled in the U.S. under a speeded-up "surge operation" for refugees left Jordan on Wednesday for Kansas City, Missouri, to start a new life. Ahmad al-Abboud, who is being resettled with his wife and five children, said he is thankful to Jordan, where he has lived for three years after fleeing Syria's civil war. But the 45-year-old from Homs, Syria, said he was ready to build a better life in the U.S.

    -snip- John Kasich? Tending in New Hampshire? Is that true? And if so, how does this clarify or cloud the crystal ball? The graph in that tweet is confusing. Another way to look at it is over a longer time period. On Google's proprietary scale of search interest, which runs from 0 to 100, this is how the post-Iowa search traffic in New Hampshire has looked for the five Republicans doing best in the polls. (We're mostly only interested in the candidate who will come in second, since we assume Trump will win easily.) In the past day or so,...

    In a book just released, The Story: A Reporter's Journey, Judith Miller, a key witness in the Libby prosecution, states that Patrick Fitzgerald had offered repeatedly to drop all charges against Lewis Libby if he would "deliver" Vice President Cheney to him. In addition, she charges that Fitzgerald manipulated her into incorrectly testifying about a critical conversation she had with Libby and withheld exculpatory evidence from both her and the defense in order to induce her mistaken testimony – testimony the prosecution knew was made because she was acting under a false belief....[must read snip]....Rizzo, of course, is focused only...

    A new Fox News poll of Iowa shows Donald Trump surging to a strong 11-point lead in the caucuses taking place next week. With just one week until the first votes of the 2016 primary are cast, Trump leads second-place Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 97% 34-23 percent. The last two Fox News polls of Iowa, conducted in early January and early December, has Ted Cruz with a slim lead over the GOP frontrunner. In the last two weeks, according to the poll, Trump has gained 11 points and Cruz has lost 4 points. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 79% remains...
