    Secretary of State John Kerry predicted on Thursday that nine in 10 Americans would back President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran once it has been in place for a year or more. “The fact is, a lot of polls show that the country actually supports it, and that’s a fairly even divide,” Kerry said of enthusiasm for the agreement now, according to The Huffington Post. “I think that’s pretty good, considering the amount of money that’s spent with myths being promulgated.” “If Iran destroys its Arak plutonium reactor core, filing it with cement, and it exists no longer, and Arak...

    Syria: Bashar al-Assad ready to share power, says Vladimir Putin By Tom Porter September 4, 2015 14:05 BST Russian President Vladimir Putin said Syria's President Bashar Al-Assad is ready to share power and even could hold snap parliamentary elections. Russia has been Assad's main international ally during the four-year civil war that has caused millions to flee the country and cost more than 200,000 lives. Moscow has repeatedly resisted calls for Assad to step aside, and Putin said the West should work with Assad's regime to combat jihadist organisation Islamic State, which now controls more than half of Syria. "We...

The government has now officially declared war on Christianity and against individual Christians. Kim Davis is the first casualty who was actually jailed, but will not be the last.

    In a Spanish-language address, Bush declared, “El hombre no es conservador,” which–in English–translates to, “The man [i.e. Trump] is not conservative.” Trump replied by asserting that if Bush wants to be a leader, “he should really set the example by speaking English while in the United States.” ... Trump’s call for language patriotism, however, received a stinging rebuke from the ethnic advocacy group La Raza. “Every time Donald Trump opens his mouth he widens the gulf between the Republican Party and Latino voters. Today is no exception,” said La Raza spokesperson Lisa Navarrette.

    From Mike Allen writing at Politico: A close associate tells POLITICO that Donald Trump plans to sign a loyalty pledge Thursday that would bind him to endorse the Republican nominee, and would preclude a third-party run. Trump made the stunning decision, which he has long resisted, to avoid complications in getting listed on primary ballots, and to take away an attack line in the next debate, the associate said.

Solomon reports the information was likely summarized from a secure site and sent in unclassified systems up the chain to Clinton. “One of the most serious potential breaches of national security identified so far by the intelligence community inside Hillary Rodham Clinton’s private emails involves the relaying of classified information concerning the movement of North Korean nuclear assets, which was obtained from spy satellites. “Multiple intelligence sources...

    Immigration: When Donald Trump proposed mandatory deportation of illegal aliens, pundits and politicians on both sides of the political aisle were appalled. But on this issue it looks like Trump has the public on his side. The fire from the right was almost as fierce as that from the left. "It's not conservative and it's not realistic and it does not embrace American values," said Jeb Bush. Sen. Lindsey Graham called it "absolute gibberish." Conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer called the idea "crackpot" and "morally obscene." But the prize for overheated rhetoric goes to Hillary Clinton, who said Trump wants to...

Trump won with 52 percent of the vote, CNN reports. It was not immediately clear how many of the 16 others seeking the nomination were on the ballot. In his morning speech, the billionaire businessman praised the tea party's efforts to hold the federal government accountable and discussed how the group has been discredited by the Republican establishment. "You have not been treated fairly," Trump said, according to CNN. "People talk about...

There are different versions of what transpired. The Florida-based fundraising consultants — Kris Money, Trey McCarley, and Debbie Alexander — have said that they voluntarily quit the campaign and were still working with Bush's super PAC, Right to Rise Super PAC. Others said the three, who worked under the same contract, were let go because they were no longer needed for the current phase of the campaign. None of the three...

    The Quinnipiac University poll, released Thursday, also shows Donald Trump smashing the GOP presidential competition garnering 28% support from registered Republican voters in the 17-member field. The real estate mogul's closest competitor is retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, who tallies 12%. Just 7% said they would vote for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, a record low since November 2013. Those results show just how far both Trump -- now the Republican front-runner -- and Bush -- the old one -- have come. Bush led national polls for much of the first half of 2015, but was quickly dislodged by Trump, after...

    Birthright citizenship has exploded into the national discourse. The issue is generating a lot of heat on the Republican side of the aisle in particular, because it threatens to expose the long-standing rift between the party’s base and its pro-crony-capitalism establishment. Unfortunately, in arguing that the 14th Amendment requires citizenship for the children of illegal immigrants, some of the more prominent interlocutors are promoting an incorrect understanding of history. The Wall Street Journal’s recent editorial on the matter is a case in point, and my good friend John Yoo’s NR essay repeats one of the same basic flaws. The first...

These concerns saw the benchmark Shanghai Composite (Shanghai Stock Exchange: .SSEC) index notch up its biggest one-day percentage loss since 2007 on Monday, closing down 8.5 percent . Panic spread to European markets, with the pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 (FTSE International: .FTEU3) as much as 3 percent in early London trading. All major bourses were off a similar amount.
