    YOUNGSTOWN, Pa. (AP) — They come in droves, cameras and smartphones in hand, to see Leslie Baum Rossi’s shrine to presidential candidate Donald Trump. It’s hard to miss “the Trump House,” as visitors call the attraction near the village of Youngstown. As soon as motorists veer off Route 30 onto Route 982, a massive “Trump 2016” sign on the corner of Rossi’s property can be seen before the house’s wrap-around red, white and blue paint job....

    (CNN)Former Republican Secretary of State Colin Powell said Tuesday he'll vote for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, a high-profile snub of his party's standard-bearer, Donald Trump. Powell, who also served in the Reagan and George H.W. Bush administrations, backed President Barack Obama in both the 2008 and 2012 campaigns. He announced his plan to a Long Island group during a luncheon. The announcement was confirmed by Powell's chief of staff, Peggy Cifrino. Aides informed Clinton of Powell's support after her early voting rally Tuesday afternoon in Florida. She is grateful for his support, one aide said. Later, Clinton's campaign tweeted, "Proud...

    Awful Announcing ^ | October 24, 2016 | David J. Halberstam
    Full title: The year Vin Scully was unhappy about his reduced role on network television coverage of the World Series In the early years of network television, the participating World Series teams each nominated one of their announcers to broadcast the games on NBC. The two men would usually split the play-by-play. This practice gave national viewers the opportunity each year to sample legendary local voices like Russ Hodges, Mel Allen, Red Barber, Bob Prince, Jack Brickhouse, and Harry Caray. With this setup in place, Vin Scully correctly assumed that he would announce the World Series on network television in...

    Cue to 2:45 for the first question to Perot. Trump is in many aspects giving Americans the chance to reset this country 25 years. I was not a fan of Perot at the time, mostly because at the time, I still believed that the system worked and that Republicans were not like Democrats, but damn if Trump doesn't sound just like Perot here. I often wish that Trump could bring out Perot for a rally or two. Perot was 100% right about NAFTA and Americans need to be remimded of the big giant sucking sound of our jobs going to...

    San Jose Mercury News ^ | October 25, 2016 | Robert Salonga
    Officer Mike Roberson helped save Mary Ellen Cancilla’s life. Then he helped rebuild it. It was due in part to Roberson’s persistence that officers this past summer found the 68-year-old Cancilla, weakened by radiation therapy, collapsed on her bedroom floor. But as he looked around her cluttered, under-kept home, Roberson, a 17-year San Jose Police Department member, Air Force veteran, and long-active community volunteer, felt the need to do more. He observed a home that had fallen far behind in upkeep, filled with decades of no-longer-used belongings and other accumulated items dating back to when Cancilla’s family moved into the...

    Can we at least agree that a Lutheran cannot be pope? HERE Francis yesterday continued his twisting of the One True Faith by demonstrating, once again, that Calvinist/Lutheran theology is at the core of his own false religion. All the “mercy” that Francis talks about is NOT the mercy of God, but rather a false mercy, because it is grounded in this false idea of Total Depravity. You absolutely MUST understand Total Depravity, and why it is false, if you want to make sense of how Francis operates. First, here are the comments from yesterday: HERE “Behind an attitude of...

    A Syrian Christian mother shared her story of escaping the Islamic State terrorist group in a suburb of Damascus while losing her son, George, after he refused to identify himself to the terrorists by a Muslim name. The woman, Alice Assaf, said that she had heard that her son, who was beaten and shot to death, was spared a much worse fate: being baked in the ovens of the local bakery or “kneaded” to death in the bakery’s industrial-sized mixer.

    Gehad El-Haddad, the now-imprisoned former spokesman for the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood's so-called "Freedom and Justice Party," was effectively the "Baghdad Bob" of the Arab Spring. Educated in the UK and the son of a top Muslim Brotherhood leader, Gehad served as the special advisor on foreign policy to deposed Muslim Brotherhood president Mohamed Morsi. Gehad incited violence, justified the torture of protesters, recycled fake news stories, and staged fake scenes of confrontation during the 2013 Rabaa protests. He was arrested in September 2013 after the fall of Morsi and the bloody confrontations during the breakup of the Muslim Brotherhood's protest...

In a lead-up event at the Vatican on October 13, the Pope received a group of 1,000 Lutherans and Catholics from Germany in the Vatican’s Paul VI hall and addressed them from the stage where a statue of Luther was erected. The sight came as a shock to many Catholics because Luther was excommunicated and his theses...

    America is a two-party system and after party conventions select the nominees, we have two choices and only two choices. Both nominees have demonstrated serious character flaws. The current spotlight is on lewd, vulgar comments from Donald Trump that cannot be defended. Nevertheless, his words could never be used to justify a vote for Hillary Clinton and her leftist agenda. Those morally pure conservatives who believe they cannot in good conscience vote for Mr. Trump but don’t like Mrs. Clinton need to define what outcome they are seeking by voting third party or not at all.

Mark Lucian Feigin, 40, was taken into custody last week. On Sept. 19, the suspect left at the center a voicemail filled with hate and profanity. The next day he called again and threatened to kill Muslims, according to the Los Angeles Police Department. Police said they found at least nine guns, modified high-capacity magazines and 250 pounds of ammunition in the 40-year-old suspect’s home. “People make threats of this nature and they have the means to carry out...

    Zika has left a puzzling and distinctly uneven pattern of damage across the Americas. According to the latest U.N. figures, of the 2,175 babies born in the past year with undersize heads or other congenital neurological damage linked to Zika, more than 75 percent have been clustered in a single region: northeastern Brazil. The pattern is so confounding that health officials and scientists have turned their attention back to northeastern ­Brazil to understand why Zika’s toll has been so much heavier there. They suspect that other, underlying causes may be to blame, such as the presence of another ­mosquito-borne virus...

    The Drive ^ | October 25, 2016 | Tyler Rogoway
    During the Cold War, Russia’s navy prioritized moving huge numbers of cruise missiles around the globe, threatening the power-projection capabilities of American Carrier Battle Groups. In the 1950s and 1960s, aircraft carriers were seen by Soviet military elites as imperialist tools of aggression, and any initiative by the USSR to build one of their own was shot down by the powers that be. Eventually this began to change, but only gradually. The Kiev class that was launched in the 1970s was a puzzling cross-breed compromise between a heavy missile cruiser and a helicopter and VTOL (Yak-38) tactical jet carrier. Eventually...

On Monday,, the federal marketplace serving 39 states, pulled back the curtains to allow consumers to window shop for 2017 plans. As it did so, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued a report analyzing the premiums consumers will have to pay for 2017 marketplace coverage and the coverage choices they will have available. The HHS report documents what has already been widely reported -- that after two years of moderate premium increases (2% for 2015 and...

The court threw out that move saying they did it without offering a public comment period. Senator Ben Sasse issued the following statement: “Nebraska farmers and ranchers didn’t elect any of the bureaucrats at OSHA. That’s why this ruling is an encouraging step to restore common sense and the separation of powers.”

    More Democrats are casting their ballots early but the lead may not hold. The Democrats' early lead in early voting in battleground states is a strong indication that Hillary Clinton will become the nation's 45th president. Unless it isn't. Early voting has begun in 37 states and the District of Columbia (three of those states have an all-mail election) and tabulations so far show that there are more ballots delivered or returned by registered Democrats than Republicans in key states. That's good news for the Clinton campaign, but not necessary definitive, experts say, since the early numbers are as much...

    ABOUT 100 more Calais children have arrived in Britain but the Home Office has installed a massive screen outside the London processing centre so no members of the public can assess their ages. Three coaches carrying migrants with no links to the UK arrived yesterday at the Home Office building in Croydon. Last week, the Home Office came under fire after welcoming adults apparently pretending to be ‘vulnerable children’ to get fast-track asylum treatment. Now a 15ft screen has been installed outside Lunar House where the migrants are processed by officials. The Home Office says the screen was to protect...

    A great interview with Nigel Farage the day after he spoke at the Trump rally in Mississippi back in August. Farage speaks about the polls regarding the Brexit vote and how, right up to the morning of the vote, all the polls had Brexit losing by at least 10 points. Farage reminds Trump supporters to ignore the polls and vote. Watch the video and pass it around to those who are getting worried about the BS polls. It is the best 6 minutes you'll spend these last few days before the election. Nigel Farage on Varney
