    It is a binary choice ó that is obvious at least to every active duty member of the American military. Either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump will be their commander in chief. Either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump will select the secretary of defense. Either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump will select the secretaries of the Army, Air Force and Navy, the service chiefs, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the nine heads of the Combatant Commands. ---------------------------------------------- Civilians, it seems to me, shouldn't sit out an election because they don't like the choices, not while American...

    Billymark's is the most working-class bar in Chelsea, if not all of Manhattan. On a Thursday afternoon in early March, union guys play darts as both TVs air a CBS report on the early days of Syria's fragile cease-fire. A few minutes after five, Guy, 22, and Hristo, 23, walk in and we grab a booth next to a group of day-drunk FIT students. The minute we sit down, it's clear something is different. The two men are vibrating with excitement. "You need a punch?" Guy asks me, as he always does at such meetings. He's asking if I need...

    Government has a right to regulate the Second Amendment, Hillary Clinton said in an interview on the June 5 airing of This Week With George Stephanopoulos, Clinton contended that Americans have historically recognized the governmentís ďrightĒ to regulate the bearing of arms, suggesting that it was not until District of Columbia v Heller (2008) that anyone thought otherwise. Stephanopoulos asked, ďDo you believe an individualís right to bear arms is a constitutional right? That itís not linked to the service in the militia?Ē

    Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders said he understands the anger against Donald Trump that fueled violence at a Thursday rally but denounced the protesters that harassed and assaulted Trump supporters. "I understand how reprehensible and disgraceful Donald Trumpís positions are, how ignorant they are, how much he is appealingó and I can understand the anger, I surely can," Sanders said at a press conference in Berkeley, Calif., Friday. "The bigotry that is coming from his mouth, the insults to the Mexican community, the Latino community and the Muslim community, and women, and African-Americans, and veterans.

    A group of Senate Republicans wants to remove a controversial provision from the Senate's annual defense policy bill that would require women to register for the draft. Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) has filed an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that would remove the provision and block any court, including the Supreme Court, from hearing cases about who must register with the Selective Service System. The debate over requiring women to take part has split Congressional Republicans, and opponents argue that Congress needs to spend more time studying the issue. Leeís amendment would add a section into the...

    The leader of America's most prominent communist party credits Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders with helping usher socialism into the political mainstream, but says it's essential to back Hillary Clinton if she defeats Sanders in the Democratic presidential primary. John Bachtell, national chairman of the Communist Party USA, says he cast a ballot for Sanders in the Illinois primary in March, but that the self-styled democratic socialist's loyal backers should temper their criticism of Clinton as a warmongering Wall Street puppet. "The most important thing is keeping our eye on this extreme right-wing danger and really hoping that all political organizations...

    Harvest should be the time for celebrations, weddings and full bellies in southern Malawi. But Christopher Witimani, Lilian Matafle and their seven children and four grandchildren had nothing to celebrate last week as they picked their meagre maize crop. Last yearís drought, followed by erratic rains, hit the village of Nkhotakota hard. But this year the rains never came and, for a second year running, the family grain store is empty. If they manage their savings carefully and eat just one small meal a day, they may just have enough food for two more months. By August, said Irish charity...

    The conflagration that is the collapse of a socilaist utopia continues to escalate in Venezuela today. With morgues overflowing, medicines running out, and apocalyptic scenes playing out across the nation, Venezuelans took to the streets of Caracas today - at the behest of the opposition - demanding a recall referendum to end Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro's socialist rule. The troubled nations leader was not happy and security forces fired tear gas and shut subway stations to block the thousands of protesters. Over the last two weeks, several provinces have hosted scenes of looting in pharmacies, shopping malls, supermarkets, and food...

    Progressives have long been hostile to the idea of the words "under God" being included in the Pledge of Allegiance. Atheist groups, for example, have long sought to eliminate the two words from public places through the U.S. court system. At a recent campaign stop at Camden County College in New Jersey, Hillary Clinton didn't appear to be unsympathetic to the anti-under God crowd. When being introduced at the event, the person introducing her seems to purposefully leave out "under God" when reciting part of the pledge of allegiance. Hillary's response? She laughed.

    By Thursday last week, South African blacks in the countryís northern Limpopo province had destroyed 23 schools, of which 19 were set alight. The burning of schools has always been seen as a legitimate form of protest in South Africa and until the ANC-SA Communist Party takeover in 1994 it was encouraged by liberals. The burning of a school or a university is usually described as an ďuprisingĒ which is considered a positive ďrevolutionary deedĒ. A few weeks ago a lecture hall at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg was also set alight.

    The Black Lies Matter movement has brought the challenges facing black America to the fore, and introduced racially conscious quality-of-life questions into the national debate. How are black residents in America's cities faring? And how are those cities doing in meeting the aspirations of their black residents, judged especially by the ultimate barometer: whether blacks choose to move to these cities, or stay in them? Though results vary to some extent, the broad trend is clear: West Coast progressive enclaves are either seeing an exodus of blacks or are failing to attract them. Midwestern and Northeastern urban areas are attracting...

    Los Angeles was once the epicenter of apparel manufacturing, attracting buyers from across the world to its clothing factories, sample rooms and design studios. But over the years, cheap overseas labor lured many apparel makers to outsource to foreign competitors in far-flung places such as China and Vietnam. Now, Los Angeles firms are facing another big hurdle ó California's minimum wage hitting $15 an hour by 2022 ó which could spur more garment makers to exit the state. Last week American Apparel, the biggest clothing maker in Los Angeles, said it might outsource the making of some garments to another...

    Iím not a socialist. I could just leave my argument there but this article has to be at least 500 words so I will provide specific examples. 1. College shouldnít be free. College is a privilege, not an entitlement. It should be an investment by the student for his or her future. Making college free for everyone will cheapen its value and make a masterís degree essential to be competitive in the job market. Are we going to make graduate degrees free as well? Stop being ridiculous. This is the point where Bernie supporters usually start to attack me during...

    The context of the amazing outpouring and response to Bernie Sanders campaign is the uprising underway for a more just society. Across the country, pressure is mounting and social movements are building for a livable wage, to end racist attacks and police brutality, to stop fast track for TPP in the interest of jobs, the environment and democratic rights over corporate rule, to expand Social Security and end student debt. Bernie Sanders is attracting thousands at each event because he presents a specific program squarely on the side of the 99%, challenging income inequality and financial domination of the country...
  • WATCH: Cruz Demonstrates How Trump is Bold-Face Lying on Healthcare

    Either Donald Trump suffers from memory loss or he is completely lying about his healthcare plans. During Thursday night's debate Ted Cruz simply asked Trump, "True or false, you said the government should pay for everyone's healthcare?" Trump emphatically denied, claiming the accusation was completely false. To those watching who have been keeping up with this election cycle, the claim seemed dubious. After the debate, Cruz's campaign helped Trump and the rest of America understand the truth behind the spar: ...

    The U.S.'s largest nurses union has accused Hillary Clinton campaigners of deceiving Democratic voters in Nevada at Saturday's caucuses by wearing red t-shirts that people typically identify with their union. Now the union is suggesting that Senator Bernie Sanders, who it endorsed for president, request U.N. election observers. Union spokesperson Chuck Idelson said that the red tees were not a first for Clinton supporters and that when nurses attending the caucuses pointed out the Clinton people to the press, they immediately changed back into Clinton campaign blue tees.

    Maybe the pope should read the Catechism. Or the Bible. Both speak of the value of obeying the law, and both sanction those who judge the faith of another. Yesterday, as he flew above America in his opulent jet, the supposed vicar of Christ said that those who build walls are not Christian. He said it in response to a question about Donald Trump and in reference to a Trump campaign proposal to build a barrier along the U.S.-Mexico border. If you want to build a wall, the pope said, you are not Christian. Which must come as a surprise...

    Pope Francis, apparently desperate to reach out to the Catholic Church‚Äôs growing base in Latin America, spent the day slapping Americans in the face from across the US-Mexico border. In Ciudad Juarez, one of the most violent cities in the Western Hemisphere thanks to the drug cartels, the pope walked up a ramp covered in flowers toward a cross ‚Äúerected‚Ķ in memory of migrants who have perished trying to reach the United States just a stone‚Äôs throw away,‚ÄĚ according to Reuters. Funny, he never did that while visiting Cuba to pay tribute to those who died attempting to escape that...
  • China calls Ted Cruz bill a 'political farce' (Chicoms very upset!)

    Washington (CNN)Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz drew fire from a new quarter Tuesday, when the Chinese government tore into the Texas senator for a bill he pushed through the Senate last week. The legislation would rename a part of the street across from China's embassy after a pro-democracy activist jailed by Beijing. It would effectively change the embassy's address to "1 Liu Xiaobo Plaza," after the Nobel Peace Prize winner serving an 11-year sentence in part for publishing an anti-Communist manifesto calling for political freedoms. China's Foreign Ministry blasted Cruz's bill as a "political farce" and warned that it would...
  • Milo Yiannopoulos: ‚ÄėOutright Terrifying‚Äô That Facebook Teamed Up with Government to Censor Users

    Yiannopoulos discussed the current business turmoil at Twitter and how, instead of trying to right the ship, the social platform is trying to flex its political muscle with moves that will marginalize right-wing voices. More disturbingly, he said, is the more financially stable Facebook and its coordination with government censorship: It‚Äôs not just Facebook we‚Äôre talking about. They own WhatsApp and they own Instagram. And WhatsApp and Instagram are two of the companies that are winning the short messaging war‚Äďthat are winning the war for Millennial attention and for Millennial users. Twitter lost that war. Twitter only really appeals to...
