    A moment's silence for slain police officers was interrupted by chants of 'Black Lives Matter' during the Democratic convention. Dallas Sheriff Lupe Valdez was on stage paying a stirring tribute to the 5 officers gunned down in her city on July 7. She then asked the crowd to remember all officers who had fallen in the line of duty and said, 'Please help me to honor ALL of America's fallen officers with a moment of silence.' Then members of the crowd shouted the controversial slogan, and it was heard all around Philadelphia's Wells Fargo Center.
  • DNC Fashion: Hillary Clinton looked presidential in an all-white pansuit

    Hillary Clinton took the Democratic National Convention stage in a crisp, white and well-fitted pantsuit. Her perfect Florence Henderson hair was freshly cut, frosted, styled and feathered. Her pearls sparkled. She seemed happy. She sounded excited. She appeared hopeful. And that was all reflected in her clothes. And most importantly, Hillary Rodham Clinton, the first woman nominated to vie for the position of America's commander in chief by a major political party, looked presidential.

    GIBSONTON — After the impact, after the airbag blew up in his face, Isaac Velez felt panic and dread. Did I just hit someone? Velez had been driving west on Gibsonton Drive about 6 a.m. Wednesday to drop off his 4-year-old daughter at day care before heading to his job as a mechanic. He crossed East Bay Drive and then into a patch of darkness, he said, so he didn't see anything before he heard and felt the boom. Velez, 36, pulled his Nissan Altima to the shoulder and, lacking a working cellphone, knocked on the door of a nearby...

    While the anti-police rhetoric of protesters is covered extensively by news outlets across the nation, cops are facing increased backlash from the public in less apparent ways. Reports of restaurant employees either tampering with orders placed by officers or refusing to serve law enforcement entirely have become more frequent of late, capped off most recently by the account of an officer in Alexandria, Va. When the cop entered a local Noodles & Company location, she said one cook working at the time flatly refused to prepare her food. “You better pull me off the line,” the employee reportedly asserted, “because...

    Some will react to that threat by unwittingly accepting the terrorists’ agenda, as the archbishop of Rouen appeared to do when he described the killing of Father Hamel as an “assassination” — as though a provincial priest would be a target. But others reject the Islamic State narrative. “This is not a war of religions,” said a Parisian churchgoer. “It’s not a Muslim who killed a Catholic. It is simply evil.” Father Hamel may be a martyr in the eyes of the church, but his attackers are also martyrs in the eyes of jihadists. There is, of course, an egregious...

But this year was different, and not just because Hillary Clinton became the first woman to be nominated for president by a major party.

He told me he wanted to shoot a cop,” Pugh told The Post. “I didn’t believe him. Then he showed me the gun.”

The U.S. senator from New Jersey gave a well-received address to the convention earlier this week. On Wednesday morning he was similarly well received when he spoke to Iowa Democrats.

    The battle over Michigan State University’s women-only lounge began with a rival school’s male professor. Mark Perry, who teaches economics at the University of Michigan’s Flint campus, had stumbled upon a news story about the 91-year-old room in MSU’s sprawling student union. “They’d written about what a great space this is for women,” Perry said. “They can go in and take a nap and not be worried about being bothered.” He figured it couldn’t be legal. Banning men from a taxpayer-funded study area, Perry thought, could violate Title IX, a federal law meant to protect gender equality on college campuses....

With the spate of mass shootings around the country and polls that reflect support for restrictions, Democrats appear to be emboldened to make gun control a linchpin issue without fear of reprisal.

Some enrollees have complained about quality, cost and feelings of disenchantment. Now lets compare this to big education run by liberals, and millions of students lured into programs with worthless degrees taught by Liberals with triple figure salaries to run their academic machines. Programs where students thought they would be getting high quality jobs after taking out tens of thousands of dollars in student loans leave many students poor and unemployed. How worthless...

    After rising just over a decade ago to its highest level ever, the nation's home ownership rate fell to match its all-time low and could drop even further in the months to come. In the second quarter of this year, the rate fell to 62.9 percent, not seasonally adjusted, which is the same as it was in 1965, when the U.S. Census started tracking the metric. During the epic housing boom in the mid-2000s, the rate soared as high as 69.2 percent. That was when politicians touted the so-called "ownership society."

    Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby is going from prosecutor to civil defendant in connection with the case of the death of Freddie Gray. On Wednesday, Mosby announced that charges against three officers still facing trial were being dropped. Mosby gave only a statement, but had to leave without taking questions because five of the officers in the case have filed lawsuits against her. Officers Garrett Miller, Edward Nero and William Porter as well as Sgt. Alicia White and Lt. Brian Rice are suing Mosby and Maj. Samuel Cogen of the Baltimore Sheriff's Office. Cogen was the law enforcement officer who...
  • US Homeownership Rate Crashes To Lowest Since 1965

    In hopes of promoting the narrative of a US housing recovery, one recurring thesis has been that as Millennials get older and start families, they will eventually leave their parents' basement and buy a house or shift from renting to owning. So far the facts have refused to corroborate this, and according to the latest "Housing Vacancies and Homeownership" report released on Thursday, the dream of owning a home just became even more distant. The reason: after staging a feeble rebound in late 2015, the US homeownership rate just tumbled from 63.5% to 62.9%, tied for the lowest print going...

    Have you lost that loving feeling? If so, the United States federal government might just be able to help. Before you swipe right on Tinder or update that eHarmony account, consider instead taking a quick trip out of the country. Because on your way back home into the Land of the Free, US Customs and Border Protection will have agents standing by ready with heaps of government stimulus. It happened to a Jane Doe (the name has been withheld to protect what little remains of her dignity), a 54-year old US citizen who had recently been on a trip to...

    I’ve been watching the Democratic National Convention and wondering if this will be the first time in history that we see a candidate’s poll numbers plunge after a convention. ... But if you’re an undecided voter, and male, you’re seeing something different. You’re seeing a celebration that your role in society is permanently diminished.

    In a pro- instead of reactive move that many will say was long overdue, if quite ironic considering it was Germany's lax immigration policy for most of 2015 that is the reason for Europe's soaring "radical Islam" crisis, overnight German police and special forces raided a mosque and eight apartments in Hildesheim, said to be a hotbed of a radical Salafist community, the interior minister of the northern state of Lower Saxony said on Thursday. Interior Minister Boris Pistorius said in a statement that up to 400 police - including mobile squads and a special forces police commando - were...

    If Hillary Clinton wins the presidency in November, America could get its first “first laddy!” Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton said her dad is sweet on the Irish-themed title should mom Hillary become the nation’s first female president, making hubby Bill Clinton the first male White House spouse. “He likes to harken back to his Irish roots so I think he’d love to be called `first laddy,’ ” Chelsea told NBC’s “Today” show in an interview aired Thursday morning, hours ahead of her big speech for Hillary in Philadelphia. She added: “We have talked about it partly because we’ve all...
