    Cooler weather and the threat of rain didn’t deter dozens of people from showing their support for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump at a support rally in Saginaw Township Tuesday, Sep. 27. Between 4:00-6:30 p.m. people held signs, listened to music and enjoyed brats and hot dogs in the festive atmosphere at the GOP headquarters at 3039 Bay Rd. People honked their horns as they passed by to encourage those gathered. Trump’s Saginaw County campaign director Debra Mantey says the event was to show people it’s possible to shift the state in Trump’s favor. “This is just the second round...

    After all my years in public life I am sickened by the intellectual dishonesty, arrogance, and smugness of what Nassim Taleb calls the Intellectual Yet Idiots. The IYI's showed up immediately after the debate. They stacked the deck against Trump with Lester Holt's one-sided questions and interventions. The Holt-Clinton team was glib, articulate, and self-congratulatory. However, they lost. Trump wins strategically because in a blunt, clear style, he is saying things most Americans believe. Trump's opponents, including Holt and Clinton, felt good after the debate because their side was glib, articulate, and said things they and their friends believe to...

    Moments after news of Shimon Peres’s death emerged early Wednesday morning, eulogies began pouring in from world leaders from across the globe. “There are few people who we share this world with who change the course of human history, not just through their role in human events, but because they expand our moral imagination and force us to expect more of ourselves. My friend Shimon was one of those people,” US President Barack Obama, who is expected to attend the late president’s funeral Friday, said in a statement.

  • ANALYSIS: @HillaryClinton’s #AliciaMachado Definitely Had Anchor Baby With Mexican Drug Kingpin

    GotNews ^ | 9/27/16 | Charles Johnson
    GotNews has already exposed Hillary Clinton’s Alicia Machado as a lying attempted murderess and porn star with a Mexican drug kingpin’s anchor baby. The Mexican Attorney General and GotNews’ unnamed federal law enforcement source both agree that Machado’s baby daddy is locked-up drug trafficker Gerardo Alvarez-Velazquez. Alicia Machado herself has variously claimed it’s her “best friend” Rafael Hernandez Linares and that “she’s kept quite about his identity because he isn’t involved in the entertainment world and she’d like to respect his privacy.” Does Alicia Machado’s daughter Dinorah look like she could be the drug kingpin’s kid? Yep.

    A lexicographer with Merriam-Webster says Donald Trump isn’t making up words — he’s just using them all wrong. One of the stranger moments in Monday night’s presidential debate came when Donald Trump looked Hillary Clinton in the eye to make an important point about taxation. “I’m going to cut taxes bigly. And you’re going to raise taxes bigly.” And then Twitter had a minor explosion — smaller than the sniffling but maybe bigger than the 400-pound hacker. People wondered aloud if the Republican candidate, so often critiqued for being flexible with facts, had just made up a word. But lexicographer...

    Islamophobia is all about faking it.You may have seen the headlines claiming that “hate crimes” against Muslims have soared to levels not seen since 9/11. According to this controversial study, hate crimes had increased 78%. All the media had to do was fill in the boilerplate language blaming Trump and Islamophobic discourse by conservatives. These numbers come from the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University San Bernardino. It’s conveniently located around 11 miles from the site of the Muslim massacre in San Bernardino. One of its authors, Kevin Grisham, was the former director of...

    Leaked document reveals the staggering breadth of domestic terrorist activity -- and the administration's cover-up.The Obama administration has been concealing the staggering breadth of terrorist activity in the United States – quantified as close to 8,000 terrorist encounters in a recent year -- a leaked government report suggests. There are disturbing parallels between the Obama administration’s ongoing cover-up of the true extent of terrorist operations in the U.S. and its election season cover-up four years ago of the real causes of the Benghazi, Libya terrorist attack on Sept. 11, 2012. Remember that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton publicly lied four...

    Sweden may be descending into a crisis as a new report suggests 80 per cent of police officers are considering switching careers due to the danger they face in the field. The criminal situation in Sweden may be heading for an even worse turn as a new report has shown that the vast majority of the Swedish police force is so unhappy they are looking into other careers. Sweden has been rocked by increasing levels of criminality from sex attacks at music festivals, hand grenade attacks and violence toward the police in areas populated mostly by migrants.

    From a charred Hebrew scroll, researchers resurrected one of the earliest known versions of the Old Testament using a new digital reconstruction technique that may prove invaluable in revealing words from other previously unreadable finds, said scientists who plan to make the imaging software freely available. In research published in Science Advances Wednesday, computer analysts at the University of Kentucky in Lexington detailed the technology they used to reveal text within a roll of parchment reduced to charcoal in a burning synagogue 1,500 years ago, “virtually unwrapping” the scroll without ever actually touching the artifact. While important to archaeologists, the...

    Al Arabiya ^ | Tuesday, 27 September
    Saudi ministers will see a drop in their salaries of 20 percent, while members of Shura council’s wages are to be 15 percent less. The move follows a royal decree and Cabinet statement released Monday, in which the Saudi government announced the suspension of wage increases. During its meeting the Saudi cabinet also agreed to cancel the payment of bonuses, allowances, rewards and financial benefits. According to statistics, a minister’s salary amounts to 51,750 Saudi Riyals (SAR) – that’s nearly $13,800. But with the wage cut this figure will be reduced to 41,400SAR ($11,034). There are 143 Ministers, with a...

    When several Donald Trump campaign signs went missing from Charlie Tulumello’s front yard, he assumed it was just neighborhood kids playing a prank. Never did he think the thief was a former administrator at a local college, and a PhD in his 60s. After the thief struck twice, Tulumello decided to place a pair of trail cameras on trees in his front yard to catch any overnight action. Three times, a man — and twice with his dog — walked onto Tulumello’s property and ripped a total of seven signs out of the ground. ... Dr. Norman Muir, the former...

    Entrepreneur Elon Musk unveiled his contrarian vision for sending humans to Mars in roughly the next decade, and ultimately setting up colonies there, relying on bold moves by private enterprise, instead of more-gradual steps previously proposed by Washington. Mr. Musk—who in 14 years transformed his closely held rocket company, Space Exploration Technologies Corp., into a global presence—envisions hosts of giant, reusable rockets standing more than 300 feet tall eventually launching fleets of carbon-fiber spacecraft into orbit. The boosters would return to Earth, blast off again into the heavens with “tanker” spaceships capable of refueling the initial vehicles, and then send...

The implications of this move range from control by an international bureaucracy to totalitarian regimes locking up entire portions of the Internet, according to experts. At issue is US control over the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). “ICANN is arguably the single most powerful institution in the world as it relates to the global economy and communication. It has oversight authority over 300 million domain names, which number is increasing every day”, states Internet pioneer, Jeff Baron.

For most Utahns, this date is not a cause for celebration. It’s a source of anger toward what many see as an out-of-touch and overbearing federal government Infamously, the Clinton administration failed to notify the people of Utah prior to announcing the monument designation—probably because the administration knew that nearly everyone in the state was opposed to the idea. Utah’s congressional delegation, state and county leaders, and local residents all warned that a...

    The lifetime of Shimon Peres, who died Tuesday at age 93 after suffering a stroke on Sept. 13, spans the lifetime of the state of Israel. Born in Belarus, his family moved to Tel Aviv when he was 11, more than a decade before the country was founded. He lived on a kibbutz, when those communal settlements and a utopian, leftist ideology defined the nascent state. He also served in the pre-independence militia that became the Israeli Defense Forces, the institution that would ultimately define Israeli society. A hawk in the early decades of the country’s existence, Peres was a...

    Skyscrapers in the City of London could soon be built by robots rather than by people, according to the boss of one of the UK’s biggest construction firms. The result would be huge productivity gains as more work could be done by fewer people – but also mass layoffs as traditionally labour-intensive construction projects hire fewer and fewer staff. “We’re ,” said Alison Carnwath, the chairman of Land Securities, the £8.2bn FTSE 100 construction company. Speaking at the Institute of Directors’ annual convention, the veteran businesswoman said the pace of technological change has taken her by surprise.
  • WikiLeaks CONFIRMS Hillary Sold Weapons to ISIS… Then Drops Another Bomb

    Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, is a controversial character. But there’s no denying the emails he has picked up from inside the Democrat Party are real, and he’s willing to expose Hillary Clinton. Now, he’s announcing that Hillary Clinton and her State Department were actively arming Islamic jihadists, which includes the Islamic State (ISIS) in Syria. Clinton has repeatedly denied these claims, including during multiple statements while under oath in front of the United States Senate.

    So the first presidential debate is over. I didn't watch it, as I cannot stand listening to Hillary for even 5 seconds. But I was out and about today. I noticed a lot of Trump signs on lawns. Those signs weren't there last week. I live in a NE rust-belt state. Make of all that what you will.

    Archaeologists have uncovered a forgotten 200-year-old pub beneath the city of Manchester, England. And the best part? It still has full, untouched bottles of brandy inside, The Independent reports. Archaeologists discovered the underground pub — once known as the Astley Arms — when they were brought in to inspect the site of a future skyscraper. During the excavation, they found pottery belonging to Thomas Evans, who was the landlord of Astley Arms in 1821. "It's brilliant because you can suddenly connect it to the local people in the area. We looked online about [Evans'] family history and one of his...

  • Did ICE endorse Trump? No, but a union of 5,000 immigration agents did.

    Republican candidate Donald Trump said, incorrectly, during Monday night's presidential debate that the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, a federal law enforcement agency, had just endorsed him. Since government agencies cannot issue endorsements, Mr. Trump was likely referring to the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council, a union representing some 5,000 immigration officers, which backed Trump in a campaign announcement Monday morning. The latest show of support adds to Trump's endorsements from other law enforcement unions, including the National Border Patrol Council, which represents some 16,500 immigration officers, and the Fraternal Order of Police, which represents about 330,000 officers nationwide.

    Several Afghan nationals undergoing military training in the United States disappeared from U.S. military bases this month, according to Pentagon and Homeland Security officials. “During the month of September, seven Afghan students were considered absent without leave (AWOL) during international military student programs,” Pentagon spokesman Cmdr. Patrick L. Evans said. Three of the Afghan military trainees fled from a Pentagon training program two weekends ago during the bombing spree in New York and New Jersey by Afghan-born bombing suspect Ahmad Rahami, raising concerns among security officials that the missing Afghan students may be linked to terrorism or plans for attacks...

    PROVIDENCE, R.I. — The Rev. Francesco Francese kept his Sunday homily at St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church on Broadway short as he encouraged worshipers to “be gentle” with people who stray from the path of God. “It’s our Christian duty to, if we can, to make up for mistakes, and try to help those who are also victims in one way or another,” said Father Francese. “God wants us to give others their due, to never be unjust to them.” As he closed his Bible the sanctuary fell silent. The rousing blend of voices, piano harmonies, and bongo drums associated...

    Microsoft’s self-installing Windows 10 operating system has reached the 400 million mark, the firm announced at its Ignite conference in Atlanta this week, up from the previous high of 350 million in August. This adoption rate means the firm’s self-imposed target of a billion devices by mid-2018 looks increasingly unlikely, but the Redmond giant can take some consolation in the fact that business enthusiasm seems to be growing. The latest version of Windows hit its one-year anniversary on July 29, a date that also marked the ending of the free upgrade offer period for users of Windows 7 and Windows...
