Trump mentioned LAX in the context of a statement about the national debt, saying that it might be understandable to have $20 trillion in debt and outstanding public infrastructure, but that the poor state of Americaís transportation network underscored the governmentís waste of money.
  • The Truth About Cops

    It's time for all the cop bashers out there to learn the truth about police work. The short explanation is that while forensics and science play a large part in modern criminal investigations, being a police officer itself is not a science. It's imperfect people doing their best to enforce imperfect laws, in an often times very difficult environment, and being forced to make split second, sometimes life and death decisions, most of the time with little if any information to base their decisions on. You want perfection, it only exists in the movies. Try 'Robocop', it's entertaining, but it's...

    ELIZABETH, N.J. Ė Authorities said they apprehended Ahmad Khan Rahami, the 28-year-old wanted in connection with weekend bombings in Manhattan and Seaside Park, N.J., after a shootout Monday with police officers. The bloody incident capped off a frantic 72-hour period in this region and beyond, marked by the dual bombings, a stabbing spree in Minnesota and then, Sunday night, the discovery of still more explosive devices at a train station here. Even as the widening probe into the bombings continued across this region, authorities sought to reassure residents that the the bombings and additional explosives appeared to be the work...

    No matter where you look, if you're watching the MSM or a NeverTrumper is on the screen, you will hear the statement that Trump needs to win Pennsylvania. NeverTrumper Glenn Beck pushes this notion on his show regularly. The reason they do this is to put all the focus on Pennsylvania, where it is always an uphill fight for a Republican and the polls often look tough. Glenn knows that he has Trump supporters in his audience and his goal is to demoralize them. Unfortunately, he often distorts the truth or simply misstates it, to accomplish this goal. Trump absolutely...

    Tyler DurdenSeptember 12, 2016 In all the confusion surrounding yesterday's Hillary health scare, the WaPo reported originally, and then revised, that none other than the Secret Service "broke its own protocol" in the confused, stunned context of Hillary Clinton's early departure from Ground Zero on Sunday. The Wapo brought attention to the widely circulated video of the Democratic presidential nominee's departure from the ceremony, in which Clinton can be seen leaning against a security bollard and then buckling and stumbling as her security detail helps her into a black van. Citing two former Secret Service agents who reviewed the video,...

    A little, that is. Shadi Hamid writes in the LA Times about why Islam isn't like other faiths -- as I've long been explaining here. He explains the reason the Quran is different from the Bible in very articulate terms: Contrary to what many think, there is no Christian equivalent to Koranic "inerrancy," even among far-right evangelicals. Muslims believe the Koran is not only God's word, but God's actual speech -- in other words, every single letter and word in the Koran comes directly from God. This seemingly semantic difference has profound implications. If the Koran is God's speech, and...
  • Buzz about a 'bud': Clinton camp denies claims she wore earpiece at forum

    While Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump each generated headlines about comments made Wednesday night at a candidatesí forum, the buzz Thursday morning was more about a report claiming Clinton relied on a ďmicroĒ earbud as she fielded questions about national security ó a claim her campaign vigorously denied. The website True Pundit quoted unnamed New York police sources saying Clinton was wearing an ďinductive earpieceĒ during the NBC forum hosted by Matt Lauer. The website described the unit as the kind of tech used by stage actors in need of prompting to recite forgotten lines. Two senior campaign aides, though,...

    Colin Kaepernick has gone through a lot changes this offseason -- he grew out his hair, he lost weight and he's now a vegan, just to name a few of those changes. However, one change he didn't go through is a change of his religion. During his weekly press conference on Wednesday, the quarterback debunked the internet rumors that claimed his girlfriend had convinced him to convert to Islam and become a Muslim.
