    A Florida man was arrested Monday and is facing charges for allegedly attempting to steal a snake from a Saint Petersburg pet store. Pinellas County deputies said the suspect, identified as Travis Treder, walked into an Animal House Pet Center and stuffed a baby python down his pants. Employees of the pet center saw Treder attempting to steal the snake and tried to stop him from leaving the building. Police say Treder shoved a pet store worker to the ground. Pet store staff were, eventually, able to restrain the suspect, pinning him to the ground and tying him up with...

    Former U.S. Sen. Bob Bennett, of Utah, who shied away from the spotlight but earned a reputation as someone who knew how to get things done in Washington, has died. He was 82. Bennett assistant Tara Tanner said he died Wednesday from complications of pancreatic cancer and a recent stroke. The Republican was first elected in 1992 and was widely seen at home as politically moderate, which at times put him at odds with Utah’s highly conservative Republican base. His middle-of-the-road reputation led to his ouster in 2010 at the state convention by delegates fueled by tea party anger. …

    President Barack Obama on Wednesday urged Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders to fight bigotry and to press Congress to update U.S. immigration policy. Obama said America’s tradition is to welcome newcomers because it was founded by immigrants. He said that tradition also makes difficult to understand why some people are blocking efforts to overhaul U.S. immigration laws. “We don’t simply welcome new immigrants. We are born of immigrants,” Obama told hundreds attending the Asian Pacific American Institute of Congressional Studies’ annual awards dinner. The nonpartisan, nonprofit organization promotes Asian-American and Pacific Islander participation and representation in politics. …

    Just a few months ago, Mexico looked like the poster country for soda tax advocates.“One of the world’s highest soda taxes appears to be working. After just one year, purchases of sugary drinks in Mexico are down 12 percent, a new study shows,” crowed the Bloomberg editorial board in January. “Public health authorities hailed the findings as the first hard evidence that a nationwide tax could spur behavioral changes that might help to chip away at high obesity rates,” reported The New York Times.But now new data shows a different outcome.While Mexico’s roughly 10 percent tax (or 1 peso per...

    The southeastern United States has been hit by a series of strange unexplained quakes - most recently, the 2011 magnitude-5.8 earthquake near Mineral, Virginia that shook the nation's capital. Researchers have been baffled, believing the areas should be relatively quiet in terms of seismic activity, as it is located in the interior of the North American Plate, far away from plate boundaries where earthquakes usually occur. Now, they believe the quakes could be caused by pieces of the Earth's mantle breaking off and sinking into the planet.

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee’s campaign has been using Rolling Stones music — he played a recording of the song “Start Me Up” at a speech late last month and again Tuesday night — and the band isn’t happy about it. The 54-year-old group has requested Trump stop using Stones music.

    President Obama on Wednesday took a jab at Republican presidential candidate Donald Trumpover his harsh rhetoric about immigrants. Speaking at an event honoring Asian-American and Pacific Islander students and leaders, Obama called on them to vote to push back against a “rising tide of bigotry” against immigrants. “If you doubt what’s at stake, you obviously haven’t been reading the papers,” Obama said at the Asian Pacific American Institute of Congressional Studies gala in Washington. The president said if Asian-Americans exercise their political power, they can help the country “move beyond today’s anti-immigrant sentiment” just like past generations did. “We’ve got...

    TV commentators often talk about Trump’s preternatural power to indelibly “brand” his opponents, from “low-energy” Jeb to “Little” Marco and “lying” Ted. No matter how crude and simplistic the labels, they always seems to stick, dumbfounding old-school political observers who are used to candidates competing for the “high road.” The strategy of GOP bigwigs appears to be: “lose badly, but remain virtuous.” The power of Trump’s branding is partly down to the media’s hunger for drama, and partly thanks to his business acumen — but it’s also in large part due to his internet supporters, who have an uncanny ability...

Nearly two-thirds of the homeless people tallied countywide, or 28,000, were in the city of Los Angeles, representing an 11% jump in January from a year earlier, a report from the agency stated.

    While the Republican field has now been cleared for Donald Trump, the road ahead is still messy for the front-runner to become the official nominee at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, in July. Currently, Trump has 1,012 bound delegates, plus an additional 43 unbound delegates who are free agents -- though they have told ABC News they support Trump. Most likely, Trump will hit and far surpass the needed 1,237 in total delegates on June 7, when delegate-rich states like New Jersey and California cast their ballots. He is predicted to take most of the 228 delegates up for...

    A study of labrador DNA revealed more than a fifth of the dogs carry a genetic variation which could predispose them to food-seeking and weight gain. Labrador dogs are well known for being fond of their food, but new research suggests their greedy nature could be down to genetic mutation. Labrador retrievers are top dog in the UK, with 32,507 animals newly registered with the Kennel Club in 2015 alone. But the breed is well known for its tendency to develop a portly form, a concern given the variety of health problems - from diabetes to heart disease - linked...

    Child migration is surging again. The number of families and unaccompanied children apprehended on the southern border has skyrocketed this year, according to new figures from the Obama administration. The numbers, compiled by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), reveal that child migration is on par with 2014 levels, when a wave of kids –– thousands of them unaccompanied –– arrived at the southern border. The surge of illegal immigration quickly swamped border authorities, immigration courts and health and humanitarian workers, while sparking a political battle on Capitol Hill over the cause and proper response to the crisis.

Don't comfort yourself too much by looking at the horse race polls. Those are about Donald Trump's weakness, not Clinton's strength. A fresh Washington Post poll shows that only 37 percent of American voters trust her, and the number is dropping -- even before her well-fed opponents have begun to pound the airwaves with slimy attack ads on her.

Jacqueline Walker is a vice-chair of the movement’s national steering committee and activist in south-east England. Labour suspended Ms Walker from the party after the JC brought her comments to the party’s attention. She has repeatedly claimed the ongoing allegations of Jew-hate against party members are part of a “witch-hunt” against Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. Describing herself as an anti-Zionist, Ms Walker responded to a critic who asked her about the Holocaust on Facebook in February by writing...
  • Donald Trump Won’t Self-Fund General-Election Campaign

    Donald Trump won’t self-fund his general-election campaign, and will instead create a “world-class finance organization,” the presumptive Republican nominee said in an interview on Wednesday. For a campaign expected to cost more than $1 billion, “I’ll be putting up money, but won’t be completely self-funding, as I did during the primaries,” Mr. Trump said on Wednesday. The New York businessman, who did receive some mostly small unsolicited donations, lent his campaign $36 million of the $47 million he spent through March. That plan represents a shift for Mr. Trump, who has for months portrayed his Republican opponents as “puppets” for...

    A shocking new report indicates scientists have found a way for human embryos to live outside the womb for 14 days, which is a record, so they can be experimented on for a longer period of time. Leading pro-life advocates are outraged that scientists would specifically create unique human beings to purposefully experiment on and later destroy just for research. They are worried scientists will continue creating more unborn human people who will be subjected to research for a longer duration of their embryonic life.

According to Operation Rescue, a pro-lifer discovered papers blowing down the sidewalk from one of the Hillcrest Clinic’s dumpsters in Baltimore. Upon closer inspection, the woman saw that on the documents were patients’ “names, addresses, and even a copy of a woman’s photo identification card – all blowing down the sidewalk...

    Don't expect Oscar De La Hoya to be supporting Donald Trump's presidential campaign any time soon. The former boxing champion is making some serious claims and taking a shot at Trump's golfing integrity, saying he cheated on his own golf course. "It shows something about his character," De La Hoya told The Associated Press. "Golf is a gentleman's sport. You don't lie about your score, you don't lie about moving your ball. It goes to show what we're dealing with."

    The Romanian hacker known as “Guccifer” who hacked into Hillary Clinton’s private email server told Fox News that “it was easy.” “For me, it was easy … easy for me, for everybody,” Marcel Lehel Lazar, also know as “Guccifer,” told Fox News’ Catherine Herridge in a phone interview. Lazar said that he first hacked into Sidney Blumenthal’s AOL account in March of 2013 and used it to get into Clinton’s server that he says he accessed twice. He explained that he did research on the internet and then guessed the answers to Blumenthal’s security questions. Lazar said that the security...

    Kansas defunded Planned Parenthood this week, and in doing so expanded access to healthcare for poor women. Kansas Senate Bill 436 reallocates money from the abortion provider to full-service healthcare clinics that serve women in need, but the abortion giant is crying foul. Gov. Sam Brownback, who vowed to defund the abortion giant during a State of the State speech in January, made the following statement: “The time has come to finish the job. We must keep working to protect our most innocent Kansans, the unborn. Every year since I became governor we have enacted pro-life legislation. We have come...

    UnitedHealthcare’s decision to not offer Affordable Care Act exchange plans next year in “at least 26 of the 34 states where it sold 2016 coverage” may soon be followed by similar announcements from other health care insurers. At least that is one implication that can be drawn from the findings reported in a new paper analyzing the performance of insurers that offered exchange coverage in 2014.

    Child migration is surging again. The number of families and unaccompanied children apprehended on the southern border has skyrocketed this year, according to new figures from the Obama administration. The numbers, compiled by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), reveal that child migration is on par with 2014 levels, when a wave of kids –– thousands of them unaccompanied –– arrived at the southern border. The surge of illegal immigration quickly swamped border authorities, immigration courts and health and humanitarian workers, while sparking a political battle on Capitol Hill over the cause and proper response to the crisis. The...

    Prior to his remarks about Obama’s final days in office, Savage told his listeners he believed Trump would defeat Clinton in a landslide, describing the former secretary of state, senator and first lady as “Fidel Castro in a dress.” If Donald Trump wins the Republican nomination and defeats likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in November, President Obama will sabotage the economy in his final months in office, predicts talk-radio host Michael Savage. “If Trump wins – and I think he will – there will be an economic crash,” Savage told listeners of his nationally syndicated show, “The Savage Nation,” Monday....

    The Justice Department’s Office of Justice Programs is eschewing the terms “felon” and “convict” when officials refer to individuals convicted of crimes, opting instead for less “disparaging labels,” Assistant Attorney General Karol Mason announced Wednesday. The Office of Justice Programs plans to substitute terminology such as “person who committed a crime” and “individual who was incarcerated” in speeches and other communications as part of an effort to remove barriers that officials say hinder progress of those who re-enter society after completing their prison sentences. “I have come to believe that we have a responsibility to reduce not only the physical...
