    "If there are any little girls out there who stayed up late to watch, let me just say: I may become the first woman president, but one of you is next," Hillary Clinton told the Democratic National Convention audience via satellite Tuesday night. This remark, said in a tone one might use to talk to babies, was the cherry on top of a slate of speakers who lauded Clinton’s landmark accomplishment as the country’s first female presidential nominee of a major party. The word “historic” was on everyone’s lips as Democrats claimed moral superiority for their support of a woman...

    Right now, prisoner #47042-083, Abdurahman Alamoudi, sits in his cell in a federal prison in Ashland, Kentucky. It's a long way down from being one of Hillary Clinton's favorite colleagues. Alamoudi organized White House events during the Bill Clinton administration. Under Hillary's supervision, he held official positions: Alamoudi was strategically placed at the White House, the Pentagon, and the State Department. That is, until he was arrested and convicted in a bizarre Libyan intelligence/al-Qaeda assassination plot to kill the Saudi crown prince. Later, he was identified by the Treasury Department as an Al-Qaeda fundraiser who had operated inside the United...

    This mom was focused on getting her baby to say 'mama', by repeating the word over and over. The family dog sat by and wimpered until it turned into words where he can be heard mimicking the mother as he's saying 'mama'. It could be safe to say that the dog's motivation of imitating the sound was his desire for the food being waived infront of his face. Jealous of his quick studies, the baby pushes the dog away, still unable to say 'mama'.

Gold’s pleading message to Clinton, which included a promise to ask Donald Trump about Russia, reads like the DNC emails exposed by Wikileaks showing media collusion with the Democrats. The press knows that Clinton is looking bad in comparison to Donald Trump by her not having held a formal press conference in nearly eight months–235 days is the reported number. Trump held yet another press conference Wednesday morning in which he went after Clinton for not holding press conferences. Gold’s tone with...
