    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump posted a two-point lead over his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Tuesday, the first time he has been ahead since early May. Trump's gains came as he accepted his party's nomination to the Nov. 8 ballot at the four-day Republican National Convention in Cleveland last week, and as Clinton's nomination in Philadelphia this week was marred by party divisions and the resignation of a top party official.
  • Racially charged feud over Senate race in California spills into Democratic convention

    California’s racially charged all-Democrat Senate race has spilled onto the Democratic National Convention as the candidates continued to feud over President Obama’s endorsement of one over the other. Attorney General Kamala Harris, the recipient of Mr. Obama’s blessing, said Monday that she thought Rep. Loretta Sanchez should apologize to the president for suggesting that race played a role in the endorsement. Ms. Harris is black and Ms. Sanchez Hispanic. “I find it very troubling, and I think that that is not the voice or perspective of a leader,” Ms. Harris told Fox11 in Los Angeles. “Especially in these times, where...

    A new study finds that a commonly used insecticide kills much of the sperm created by male drone honey bees, one reason why the bees are dwindling. The class of insecticide called neonicotinoids didn’t kill the drones. But bees that ate treated pollen produced 39 percent less live sperm than those that didn’t, according to a controlled experiment by Swiss researchers published Wednesday in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B. It essentially acted as an accidental contraceptive on the drones, whose main job is to mate with the queen — but not one that prevented complete reproduction, just...

    Will Hillary Clinton's campaign be destroyed by her own party? The hits keep coming for Hillary Clinton. As the DNC email leaks continued this week, it was revealed that Democrat staffers used homophobic slurs and secretly funneled money for the presumptive nominee! Amid the thousands of private emails released by Wikileaks in the latest batch, was one that might be the most offensive yet.

    President Obama’s trip to the 13-day Paris Climate Change Conference last fall cost taxpayers at least $4,165,068.40, according to information obtained by the government watchdog organization Judicial Watch. “Obama’s Paris junket is another example of wasteful and unnecessary presidential travel that abuses the taxpayers, the military, and the U.S. Secret Service,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Bernie Sanders loyalists protested inside and outside the Democratic National Convention site and clashed with police on Tuesday after Hillary Clinton won the party's presidential nomination. Despite Sanders' calls for them to support Clinton, thousands of activists have taken to the streets during the convention this week to voice support for the liberal Vermont U.S. senator and his progressive agenda. Moments after Clinton became the first woman to be nominated for president by a major U.S. political party, a large group of Sanders delegates and supporters exited the Philadelphia convention site to hold a sit-in inside a...

    Die-hard Bernie Sanders supporters aren’t too concerned over whether or not Russia and Vladimir Putin leaked the DNC’s emails. PHILADELPHIA — Bernie Sanders’ most ardent supporters couldn’t care less about Vladimir Putin’s alleged role in the hack of Democratic National Committee emails that suggest the primary was rigged in favor of Hillary Clinton. They’re fuming over the content of the emails, but seem unconcerned about how they were released to the public—apparently through an insidious Russian information operation to influence the American elections. The revelations in the emails are a scandal, to be sure. But the broader scandal is that...

Brown, who arrived in Philadelphia on Tuesday, said recent polls show the race between Clinton and Donald Trump, the GOP presidential nominee, is “very tight, very tight.” When asked if Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, should be nervous about her sagging numbers, Brown said, “Of course.” “You think she isn’t? It’s very uncertain at this point and very threatening,” he told The Hill. “Full alert is what I would say.” Clinton’s campaign has signaled that it is concerned...

He thinks he has enough Neanderthal DNA that he can “reconstruct” the whole DNA strand. Would that mean filling the little gaps with, say, frog DNA? It worked in Jurassic Park. Professor George Church of Harvard Medical School believes he can reconstruct Neanderthal DNA and resurrect the species which became extinct 33,000 years ago. His scheme is reminiscent of Jurassic Park but, while in the film dinosaurs...

    In 2001, Arlis on FreeRepublic posted an article "Don't fight the last war" by Barry Rubin from the Jerusalem Post dated 28 Sep 2001. This is currently the only source for the article that I can find, and it's worth reviewing. Hillary Clinton in debate last year said that "We are not at war with Islam" but with radical terrorism. Unfortunately for her and for us, Islam is at war with us, and has been for 1400 years, with many pauses and hiatuses for regrouping, reconsidering, and re-arming. In the current nominating convention acclaiming her candidacy for President, there has...

Assange was speaking in a CNN interview following the release of nearly 20,000 emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee by suspected Russian hackers. However, Assange refused to confirm or deny a Russian origin for the mass email leak, saying Wikileaks tries to create ambiguity to protect all its sources.

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration opened the door on Tuesday to a change in its blood donor deferral recommendations, which currently prohibit donations from gay men for a year following their last sexual encounter in order to reduce the risk of transmitting HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. In December the FDA overturned a 30-year ban on all blood donations from men who have sex with men, saying the change was based on science showing an indefinite ban was not necessary to prevent transmission of the human immunodeficiency virus. The FDA is now signaling it may go further. Gay...

"Daisy, Debbie, Denise and Diana," says Sinclair, a developmental biologist at the University of Nottingham in England. The sheep are just four of 13 clones that Sinclair shepherds, but they're the most famous because of their relation to Dolly, the sheep that made headlines two decades ago as the first successfully cloned mammal. " 'Sister clones' probably best describes them," Sinclair says. "They actually come from the exactly the same batch of cells that Dolly came from." Recently, Sinclair and his colleagues celebrated the sister clones'...

This marks the 49th State’s third credit decline from leading global credit rating agencies, that includes downgrades by Standard and Poor’s Rating Services and Fitch Ratings. ... In addition, Moody’s downgraded Alaska’s lease-appropriation bonds to Aa3 from Aa2, along with its moral obligation bonds to A1 from Aa3. These two bonds are consistently ranked one to two grades lower than the...
  • 'We're in this together': Local police officers overwhelmed by donations after Dallas tragedy

    Cookies, cupcakes, handwritten notes, Gatorade and even Tang. Those are some of the ways citizens have chosen to show their support and appreciation for area law enforcement in the weeks since a sniper murdered five police officers in Dallas in the wake of the fatal officer-involved shootings of black men in Louisiana and Minnesota. “You get to where you feel like you’re kind of on an island, and you’re all by yourself, and so the support from the community is fantastic because we’re in this together,” said Capt. Todd Enzbrenner with the Sand Springs Police Department. Since the shooting, he...

    Pope Francis is set to arrive Wednesday in Poland, but the homeland of Saint Pope John Paul II – Francis’ most popular modern-day predecessor -- is not rolling out the red carpet for the pontiff whose social agenda has alienated many in the conservative nation. Francis will be in Krakow to celebrate World Youth Day, the event initiated more than 30 years ago by Pope John Paul II in which hundreds of thousands of young people from all over the world gather. But unlike the favorite son the Eastern European nation sent to the Vatican, Francis has received a chilly...

    Peter Schweizer, a Hoover Institution research fellow, has just written a new book, "Reagan's War: The Epic Story of His Forty-Year Struggle and Final Triumph Over Communism." Schweizer, after scouring once-classified KGB, East German Stasi and Soviet Communist Party files, discovered incontrovertible evidence that the Soviets not only played footsie with high-ranking Democrats, they also worked behind the scenes to influence American elections. Soviet diplomatic accounts and material from the archives show that in January 1984 former President Jimmy Carter dropped by Soviet Ambassador Anatoly Dobrynin's residence for a private meeting. Carter expressed his concern about and opposition to Reagan's...
  • Ansbach bombing: MPs call for faster migrant deportations (Germany)

    MPs say the deportation of failed asylum seekers must be sped up following the Ansbach suicide bombing. The Syrian man who detonated an explosive-packed rucksack had been refused permission to stay in Germany. Although German Chancellor Angela Merkel last year proudly declared a “welcoming culture” for refugees, Armin Schuster, the Christian Democrats homeland expert in the Bundestag, warned the country needs a “farewell culture” too. Schuster told the Stuttgarter Zeitung and the Stuttgarter Nachrichten newspapers Tuesday that Germany had failed to enforce the deportation of rejected asylum seekers. More than 200,000 failed claimants were still in the country, he said....

    PHILADELPHIA – I'll say this for Hillary Clinton. She certainly attracts a high-quality sort of protester. The people who showed up to protest Donald Trump last week in Cleveland were a self-centered bunch of attention-seekers. That chant that ended "five, six, seven, eight, America was never great!" was not intended to score political points with either side in this contest. But the Bernie Sanders supporters who showed up at the City of Brotherly Love have, coincidentally enough, shown a lot of brotherly love. Unlike in Cleveland, where the convention was held in a crowded downtown, this is being held in...

    A radical mosque known for breeding terrorists has been granted special privileges by the city of Bloomington, Minnesota, which allows its members to take over a public park and treat it as their own, to the exclusion of other residents, according to complaints filed by a citizens group. The Friends of Smith Park started a petition drive and took its case to the Bloomington City Council with a formal complaint Monday night. At issue is the Dar al-Farooq mosque, which WND has previously reported has a record of turning Somali refugees into jihadists for ISIS and other terror groups.
