    Cullman County residents took to the fair this month to cast their support for Republican candidates for president, and billionaire Donald Trump won by a landslide. The Cullman County Republican Party conducted an unofficial poll of candidates; visitors stopped by the booth and dropped a bean in each respective candidates bowl. Trump came away with around 49 percent of the total beans cast, followed by pediatric neurosurgeon Ben Carson with 27 percent. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee received 6 percent, followed by former business executive Carly Fiorina and U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio tied with 5 percent and U.S. Sen. Ted...

    Part 254 of 252 in the series Wisconsin's Secret War MADISON, Wisconsin — A Waukesha County judge has ordered the state Government Accountability Board to turn over communications it had with liberal political groups. The GAB last month had argued against the release to the conservative targets of the unconstitutional John Doe investigation. But Waukesha County Judge Lee Dreyfus Jr. on Friday declared the GAB’s communications to and from the left-leaning groups, although shielded from public consumption at this point, must be turned over to the conservative plaintiffs in a lawsuit against the agency. Long-time political activist Eric O’Keefe and...

    CNA ^ | 10/5/15
    After months of debate and strong opposition, California governor Jerry Brown on Monday signed into a law a bill enabling doctors to prescribe drugs that will end the lives of terminally ill patients. “This is a dark day for California and for the Brown legacy,” said Californians against Assisted Suicide. The group warned in an Oct. 5 statement that people and families in the state could be harmed “by giving doctors the power to prescribe lethal overdoses to patients.” With the passage of the law, California will become the fifth state allowing ill patients to end their lives. Montana, Oregon,...

    The head of Poland’s bishops has given a lengthy and hard-hitting interview in which he upholds the Church’s teaching on marriage and the family, voices his opposition to Church decentralization, and calls gender ideology worse than Communism. In the interview broadcast on EWTN Germany, Archbishop Stanisław Gądecki said that the Church “can’t sing with 100 different voices as postmodernity would like it to.” “If the Church were to teach 10 or 100 doctrines,” he added, “she would break apart into 100 churches, but the Church is one, catholic and apostolic.” The archbishop, who is one of three Polish bishops attending...

    New Hampshire Republican Kelly Ayotte is facing a tough challenge from Governor Maggie Hassan. Polls show that the two are virtually tied. The question I need you to help me with is...should we care? Polls have showed the popular Hassan running close with Ayotte in early matchups; Ayotte had a 3-point lead in an NBC News/Marist poll in early September. But Ayotte starts with a $5 million head start: The Republican will have raised $1.6 million in the third quarter, according to a campaign source. That's a slight uptick from the $1.4 million Ayotte raised in the second quarter. "Unfortunately,...

The State Department has said Kerry was involved in some kind of conference call or video conference with the White House. OK, let’s call that plausible. What about Power? Rick Grenell, for years the spokesman at the US Mission to the UN and a very well-informed observer, tweeted yesterday that Power was instructed to stay away. Think of how petty that instruction, which can only have come from the White...

Her painful journey began when she was lured by a job promise that ended up with her becoming a sex slave in Tanzania. “Our job,” she told AsiaNews, "was to dance and satisfy the sexual desires of the customers who came to the club and picked us. We could not tell our families what was happening. The owner always carried a loaded pistol, ready to shoot if we told...

In an interview last week with a Hungarian Catholic newspaper, His Eminence said, "The majority is of the conviction that, according to the Church's law, whoever lives in an invalid marriage may not then go to Holy Communion." While he said he believes the Synod will clarify the Church's teaching on marriage, Cdl. Erdö also said the Church must show pastoral care for people who live...

    With just two weeks left in the federal election campaign, the Conservatives are now the top choice for voters, according to a new Ipsos poll conducted for Global News. But their lead is about as small as it can get-just one percentage point ahead of the Liberals. The poll, conducted between Oct. 2 and Oct. 5, surveyed 1,441 people online and found that 33 percent of decided voters would vote for the Conservative Party, while 32 percent would vote for the Liberal Party.....

    Explanation: What would it look like to fly past Pluto? The robotic New Horizons spacecraft did just this in late July and continues to return stunning pictures of the dwarf planet. Some well-chosen flyby images have now been digitally sequenced to create the featured video. The animation begins by showing New Horizon's approach to the Pluto system, with Pluto and its largest moon Charon orbiting a common center of mass. As the spacecraft bears down on Pluto uniquely, surprising surface features are nearly resolved that, unfortunately, quickly rotate out of view. New Horizons then passes just above and near a...

    Russia has sent its crack special troops into Syria to back up ­ President Bashar al-Assad’s bid to wipe out his opposition. Vladimir Putin’s feared Spetsnaz unit and a covert para battalion ghosted into the war-torn country and are preparing for an all-out assault on rebels fighting the regime – including moderate units such as the western-backed Free Syrian Army. A military source said: “Putin’s marines are there to guard the airbases they are using against ­sabotage by rebels. "But Spetsnaz and air-assault troops are not there to provide security to static objects, they are extremely aggressive and highly trained....

    The legality of Vermont's all-payer claims database At issue in Gobeille v. Liberty Mutual Insurance Company is whether or not the federal Employee Retirement Income Security Act supersedes Vermont's law that requires insurers to report data to its all-payer claims database. Liberty Mutual argues that it does, and thus refused to provide that state with the information that its law required. The Supreme Court agreed June 29 to hear the case, according to the Court's list of cases set to be argued in the term starting in October. Oral arguments have not yet been scheduled for the case, but recently,...

    President Barack Obama’s recent trip to Alaska helped draw attention to global climate change — and to the national-security tensions that could result from a warming Arctic region. Surveyors believe that the seabed under Arctic waters could contain hundreds of billions of barrels of untapped oil. As the North Pole becomes more accessible, and so more valuable, Arctic countries — each with its own and in some cases overlapping territorial claims — are getting ready for some serious competition. The United States and Russia are geopolitical rivals and uneasy Arctic neighbors. More and more Russian and U.S. military forces are...

Congress will have the chance early next year to vote on the trade deal, but the accord already looms large in the race to replace President Obama.

    What if U.S. citizens could Asia? A new proposal from Russia would see the country connected to the U.S. by highway bridge as part of a massive superhighway crossing the length of Russia, ultimately linking New York and London. Called the Trans-Eurasian Belt Development (TEPR). the ambitious project was proposed by Russian Railways head Vladimir Yakunin earlier this month, according to CNN. The route would include some pre-existing roads to reach London and New York, but would still require thousands of miles of tarmac across the width of Russia. This would be laid alongside the existing Trans-Siberian Railway—the longest...

    Watch out NRA, Hillary Clinton’s coming for you! During a meeting with her supporters at Broward College in Florida today, a visibly angry Hillary Clinton promised “new effective gun control measures” if elected president — whatever that means — and a “national movement” to take on Republicans who “put the NRA ahead of families.” And we do mean Hillary was angry. Here’s the video along with excerpts she tweeted out. But check out the bro-for-Hillary at the 1:43 mark.

    The Hill ^ | October 5th, 2015 | By Jonathan Easley
    Hillary Clinton on Monday ripped Republicans for politicizing the Benghazi terror attack and declared herself the front-runner in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, displaying some of the fire Democrats believe has so far been lacking from her campaign. In a nationally televised New Hampshire town hall event broadcast on NBC’s “Today,” Clinton accused Republicans of exploiting the deaths of four Americans in the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, to score political points against her, crowed about her national and early-voting state polling leads and made impassioned liberal arguments for gun control and income equality. Clinton’s...

    NASHVILLE, Tennessee — Movie trailers about Bennet Omalu have already hit theatres promoting the film Concussion. And Dr Omalu will be in the spotlight again this weekend at the College of American Pathologists 2015 Meeting, when he recounts the winding road that took him from a coroner's office, to the discovery of a new neuropathology, and on to Hollywood. The attention and bright lights are new to Dr Omalu, who remembers a solitary Saturday alone in the Allegheny County medical examiner's office where his journey began. Fresh out of his fellowship training in neuropathology, Dr Omalu found himself looking down...

    Windows 10 looks to have won about seven per cent of the world's desktop operating system market. That's The Reg's back-of-the-spreadsheet calculation after running our eye over September’s data from Netmarketshare and StatCounter, the two services we regularly eyeball to see what's going down on the desktop. Remember that Windows 10 launched on July 29th. With that in mind we can see that August saw plenty of growth, but things slowed rather markedly in September. The losers are Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, as the graphs below show both have dipped markedly since Windows 10's debut. When we crunch the...
  • Drive-By Narrative: Trump to Drop Out When He Falls in the Polls

    RUSH: The Drive-By Media's got it in its head that it's over, Trump's finished, and he's gonna drop out at some point. Even though he's still leading in every poll, they've assumed a position here that there is an inevitability to Trump dropping out. It's just gonna happen. They thought it would happen by now. They've tried to make it happen by now and before today, but it hasn't. So they're just assuming that it hasn't happened, and that has become the narrative surrounding the Trump campaign. In fact, they're even getting Trump to talk about it. You know, Trump...

    This is gross. And also sad. Progressivism continues its inevitable descent into complete parody. According to Right Wing News, a few n’er do wellers on 4chan had a brilliant idea: see if they could convince feminists to, “publicly piss/sh*t their pants in the name of ‘Equality?'” For these types of things to work, pranksters start a hashtag usually by attaching it to other well trafficked ones, then the intended marks take it from there. #PissForEquality is not first outlandish hashtag used to successfully troll self-described feminists. Last year, 4chan started the #EndFathersDay hashtag, but with even better trollistic success. Professor...
