    An email exchange between Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and John Anzalone of Anzalone Liszt Grove Research shows the former apparently condemning the Iran deal. In the email Anzalone shares a 2015 BuzzFeed article about the Iran nuclear deal in which Sen. Mark Kirk is quoted predicting that the agreement will lead to nuclear war in the Middle East. Anzalone emailed Podesta the link to the article along with Kirk’s quote: “This agreement condemns the next generation to cleaning up a nuclear war in the Persian Gulf… This is the greatest appeasement since Chamberlain gave Czechoslovakia to Hitler.” “Yup,” Podesta...

    Russia currently has S-400 and S-300 air-defense systems deployed to protect its troops stationed at the Tartus naval supply base and the Khmeimim airbase. The radius of the weapons reach may be “a surprise” to all unidentified flying objects, Russian Defense Ministry spokesperson General Igor Konashenkov said. According to the Russian Defense Ministry, any airstrike or missile hitting targets in territory controlled by the Syrian government would put Russian personnel in danger. The defense official said that members of the Russian Reconciliation Center in Syria are working “on the ground” delivering aid and communicating with a large number of communities...

    The election cycle has gotten so out of hand this year, all we can do is collectively ban together and get drunk pretend none of it’s happening. To that end I suggest turning on one of the Hillary Clinton Apologist Networks like CNN or MSNBC and play the “Power Through” Talking Point drinking game. The way it works is this: every time a blank-faced Stepford-wife of a Clinton surrogate comes on smiling like a maniac and talking about what happened this past weekend and says the phrase “powered through” you have to take a shot of whiskey. Cheap whiskey. Don’t...

    Before the coup attempt last week, the pupils, aged between 14 and 17, were made to dress up in camouflage and were handed guns with empty magazines, according to their lawyers. The children have been taken to prison and not allowed to speak to their parents as they were accused of treason against the Turkish State. The mum of a 15-year-old boy caught up in the arrest, Emre, while waiting for news outside Istanbul’s Maltepe Prison said: “Our child has never held a gun before. “They were used, they were forced to do this.” The incarcerated kids families and lawyers...

    If today’s Western leaders possess one general trait, it’s a genius for self-deception. Insisting that Islamist terror has nothing to do with Islam, or that religion has no strategic impact, or that all human beings want freedom and democracy, amounts to declaring that up is down, right is left and night is day. And midnight is coming for millions in Turkey, even as we insist that a dying flashlight is the sun. (...)

    Miss Turkey 2006 has been found guilty for sharing a poem that insulted Turkish President Erdogan. Erdogan’s dictatorship continues to crack down on potential threats to the Turkish state. This time, the dangerous Miss Turkey 2006 (27-year-old Merve Buyuksarac) has been found guilty for sharing a poem that insulted Sultan Erdogan. The Istanbul court gave Miss Turkey a suspended sentence of 14 months for “publicly insulting” President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, on condition that she does not insult the Sultan again within the next five years. Merve Buyuksarac is the latest of over 2,000 defamation cases President Erdogan has filed in...

    Turkey has said it will suspend the European Convention on Human Rights during a state of emergency declared in the aftermath of last weekend’s coup attempt. “Turkey will suspend the European Convention on Human Rights insofar as it does not conflict with its international obligations,” the deputy prime minister, Numan Kurtulmus, was quoted as saying by the state-run Anadolu news agency. The state of emergency will allow the government to rule by decree, passing bills that have the force of the rule of law unless they are overturned by parliament, where the majority of MPs belong to the ruling Justice...

    Azerbaijan, a strategic ally of Turkey, has suspended a national TV station that reportedly planned to broadcast an interview with Fethullah Gülen, the Pennsylvania-based imam who Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan blames for instigating a failed coup. In a July 19 statement, Azerbaijan’s National Council for Television and Radio announced that it would suspend for one month the privately run ANS TV’s broadcasts “to prevent the provocation aimed at undermining the strategic cooperation relations between Turkey and Azerbaijan, and not to allow the open propaganda of terrorism,” Trend news agency reported.

As reporter Brianna Keilar was appearing live from Hillary’s speech in Springfield, Illinois — and critiquing her record — the feed was mysteriously lost.

The screen suddenly went black with only the graphics — referring to...

Today, critiquing any other religion besides Christianity is considered a sin while mocking Christianity is applauded. I argue that anyone who tries to combat anything without using biblical concepts is an idiot no mater how ‘brilliant’ society thinks they are. A Christian will always be attacked no matter what they say. I as a Christian could type any sentence and instant objections will arise. I could even publish a single line article that says: “Mankind does good and evil” and someone will object....

    The Week ^ | April 18, 2016 | Pascal-Emmanuel Gobry
    Science is broken. That's the thesis of a must-read article in First Things magazine, in which William A. Wilson accumulates evidence that a lot of published research is false. But that's not even the worst part. Advocates of the existing scientific research paradigm usually smugly declare that while some published conclusions are surely false, the scientific method has "self-correcting mechanisms" that ensure that, eventually, the truth will prevail. Unfortunately for all of us, Wilson makes a convincing argument that those self-correcting mechanisms are broken. For starters, there's a "replication crisis" in science. This is particularly true in the field of...

    The drug cartel in the Mexican state of Guerrero demanded from Coca-Cola one million dollars to keep their distribution center in the region. Coca-Cola refused to pay the money. The cartel retaliated and began to burn down Coca-Cola trucks. The violence got so severe that Coca-Cola removed its distribution center. This story signifies just how powerful the narco state of Mexico is becoming, even to the point of driving out major American industries. To learn more about this story, and the political significance behind it, I spoke with Jorge Vazquez Valencia, the spokesperson for the Autodefensas, a self-defense group that...

    Just when it seemed that cooler heads might prevail, when it seemed that the tension fueled by allegations of a racially motivated attack at the University at Albany might subside, along comes the attorney for Asha Burwell with a phrase that's gasoline for the fire. Academic lynching. Yes, Frederick Brewington went there. That's how the attorney described the UAlbany process being used to determine the potential on-campus punishment for Burwell and the two other black students who said a pack of white passengers beat them on a CDTA bus while yelling racial slurs. UAlbany now believes Burwell, Ariel Agudio, and...

The ruling is final and the period of extradition could not exceed 18 months. (...)

That alert comes less than a year after Mexico had an almost identical case where authorities throughout most of southern Mexico spent days searching for the missing material. The warning was issued on Sunday evening by Mexico’s Secretariat of the Interior, just one day after the theft of a commercial pickup that had been transporting industrial material, including a yellow container with a rod of Iridium-192.

The videos also contain no audible racial slurs — though the audio quality is often "bad" and sometimes nonexistent, said Common Council President Carolyn McLaughlin and Alice Green, a longtime social justice activist in the city. But Green and McLaughlin, both leaders in the city's African- American community, stopped short of questioning the women's...

    The online world has been rocked this week by news that a group of hackers obtained the names of registrants on Ashley Madison, a website where people can find partners for extramarital affairs. Needless to say this probably has users of the site more than a little bit worried. The information reportedly lives on the “dark web,” a hard-to-find corner of the internet. The company has gotten some sites to take the data down, but lookup services, based on third parties rather than the actual hacking, remain. In a statement, the cheating site’s owner, Avid Life Media, said the incursion...

    ALBANY — Gov. Cuomo made it clear Wednesday why he has recently bypassed the Legislature on different issues like raising the minimum wage for fast-food workers. "I run the government," Cuomo said. "I am the executive and therefore I use executive power. And that’s why the executive is given the power," Cuomo said during an appearance on upstate public radio’s “The Capitol Pressroom.” Cuomo dismissed criticism that his actions represent a major power grab by going around the Legislature. In addition to creating a board that has recommended raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour for fast food workers,...

Officer Nathan Baker stopped Adam Rupeka back on May 16. At the time, Rupeka had just passed the officer and flashed the obscene gesture. He also had multiple cameras rolling. When the officer asked for license and registration, Rupeka demanded to know what law had been broken. After a back-and-forth of about 30 seconds, he was pepper-sprayed.

Reps for the inspector general's office, Cuomo and the Thruway Authority had no comment. Billionaire developer Howard Milstein recently resigned as Thruway Authority chairman. One source said Milstein, a big-time donor to Gov. Cuomo, to avoid getting caught up in the controversy once the IG report is released....

    THE UNITED NATIONS, June 27. /ITAR-TASS/. The US plans to spend $500 million for training and outfitting Syrian rebels is a step in the wrong direction, Russian Permanent Ambassador to the UN Vitaly Churkin said on Thursday. In his words, 500 million dollars is “a very big sum of money.” “I am sure that it is possible to spend it for something more useful,” he told a news conference at the Russian Permanent Mission at the UN. “They (the United States) put the situation on the wrong track,” the diplomat said. He said with regret that the US “adds fuel...

    The swiftness of the Sunni insurgency in Iraq has raised fears that it could spill into neighbouring Jordan, which has always struggled to contain its own home-grown jihadists. In the latest developments, militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isis) seized the Turaibil crossing with Jordan along with the al-Walid crossing with Syria after government forces pulled out. On the Jordan/Iraq border, a reporter from the German news agency DPA reported sighting a mobilisation of troops, tanks and missiles. In a video released on YouTube, five of the group's Mujahideen pledged to take the holy war to...

    ISIS fighters are ordering terrified families in Iraq to hand over their daughters for sex. Leaflets in the captured cities of Mosul and Tikrit claim the women – virgins or not – must join jihad, or Holy war, and cleanse themselves by sleeping with militants. Those that refuse to do so are violating God’s will, it is claimed, and will be beaten or killed. ISIS fighters have been taking women captive in Syria since last year when a Saudi-based cleric issued a fatwa – religious order telling them to. Now the sick practise is happening to Iraq. (...)

    A U.S. Navy sailor from Washington State is currently serving on a submarine thousands of miles away in the Pacific Ocean, but a judge has ordered him into an impossible custody scenario: Appear in a Michigan courtroom Monday or risk losing custody of his 6-year-old daughter. Navy submariner Matthew Hindes was given permanent custody of his daughter Kaylee in 2010, after she was reportedly removed from the home of his ex-wife, Angela, by child protective services. But now a judge has ordered him to appear in court Monday, or risk losing his daughter to his ex-wife in addition to a...

When the app is downloaded, Isis is able to post tweets automatically on behalf of all those who have signed up. The app has already been downloaded hundreds of times,...

    Let's play a game. Let's say you've done something wrong and will therefore be punished. Here's your punishment: You must retire from your job. You will receive a full pension. Your days will be free for whatever your heart desires. Hey, stop smiling. You're being punished! In the real world, of course, retirement is generally seen as a good thing, especially if the retiree will be financially comfortable. But when a cop misbehaves, retirement is treated like the guillotine. Consider the plea deal for Schenectady Detective John Hotaling. His road-rage charges will be essentially dropped if he trades his badge...
