    What kind of political party forgets the American flag? Seriously. How can you gather to nominate a candidate for president of the United States, in the city of our nation’s birth, and forget the American flag? I’m talking about the Democratic National Convention. On Monday, as Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren spoke, as amnesty for illegal aliens was demanded, there was no American flag. As Cory Booker quoted the words of the Pledge of Allegiance, it took Republicans watching at home to notice – and care – that the symbol of our Union and nation was absent. It’s in every...

  • 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...

The truth could be much, MUCH MORE SINISTER.. Seth Rich, the 27 year old DNC staffer who was murdered 'execution style' JUST TWO WEEKS AGO in Washington DC is the likely culprit.

    Truncated title. Full title: Special delivery! Democrats procure flags for convention stage after embarrassing oversight leaves Old Glory missing from Monday night's festivities After slogging through a boisterous convention on the floor, Democrats were forced to make a last-minute adjustment to the on-stage decor, after a report pointed out there were no American flags present. Democrats unveiled a sleek stage to the nation Monday, after the convention had been in the works for months. As speaker after speaker took the stage, screens behind them produced stunning scenery of the country and cool grey backgrounds.

    Many of those inspired by Sen. Bernie Sanders' insurgent campaign are now unwilling or reluctant to fall into line with his pleas to support Clinton. Chants of "Bernie!", and boos whenever Hillary Clinton’s name was mentioned, filled the opening hours of the Democratic National Convention, with delegates supporting Sen. Bernie Sanders (I) of Vermont repeatedly drowning out other speakers with their vocal dissent. Never mind that after the weekend’s Wikileaks scandal revealed bias against Senator Sanders, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) issued a formal apology, forced the resignation of DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and moved Senator Sanders’ speech to...

    After watching Republicans invoke Hillary Clinton’s name almost 300 times in just four days last week at their convention, Democrats returned the favor on day one of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. The terms “Donald,” “Trump” or “Donald Trump” appeared in an ABC News transcript of the DNC 138 times unique times on Monday, including references to the Republican nominee as well as buildings, the university named for Trump and even the businessman’s line of steaks. Among notable speakers during the evening session of the convention, Trump was extremely popular. Major speakers such as New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker...

Breitbart News has learned that some groups of delegates are considering nominating a vice presidential challenger to Clinton’s pick Tim Kaine. Others are discussing a potential walkout by Sanders delegates. But Sanders’ speech Monday afternoon urging people to vote for Clinton seems to have damaged the plans, prompting some pro-Bernie delegates...

Another email scandal, another FBI investigation, all laced with wild conspiracy theories about Russian hackers helping Donald Trump and with a victim card always at the ready. Hillary played one early, telling "60 Minutes" that she's widely distrusted only because lots and lots of bad people say untrue things about her. Where to begin with that one? Ah, it's the Clintons, and only the details are new,...

    It's common for presidential candidates to get a bump from their conventions, and two new polls Monday suggest Donald Trump did indeed get that. But the new polls don't just show Trump's stock rising (however temporarily that may be); they also have some very bad news for Hillary Clinton and her already-declining personal image. Indeed, politically, she's doing as bad as she ever has — if not worse.
