    Sabine Durden had almost lost hope. Her son Dominic, a dispatcher with the Moreno Valley Sheriff's Department, was killed by an illegal immigrant who was an unregistered driver with two previous DUIs. Yet, NOBODY in Washington would listen to her. "A week BEFORE (Donald Trump) announced his candidacy, I was so depressed," Durden told Breitbart. "No one cared about our stories, no one talked about my permanently separated family. I had no more family here, and I contemplated suicide. Donald Trump saved my life." That's why the mother went to last Wednesday's Trump rally in Anaheim, California, with a picture...

During a press conference at Trump Tower, the presumptive Republican nominee said he's raised $5.6 million and more is coming in. He rattled off the list of charities and the amounts they received, while taking scathing and sometimes-personal shots at the media for pressuring him to disclose the information. “I have never received such bad publicity for doing such a good job,” Trump...

Washington's support of Kurdish fighters in Syria in the fight against Islamic State (ISIS) jihadists has angered Ankara, especially after AFP pictures last week revealed US commandos wearing patches of the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) outlawed by Turkey.

Some illiterate anti-Semites have picked up on the phrase without understanding it.

    While millions of Republican primary voters have chosen Donald Trump as the party’s nominee, Bill Kristol and a small but well-heeled group of Washington insiders are preparing a third party effort to block Trump’s path to the White House. Their plan is to run a candidate who could win three states and enough votes in the electoral college to deny both parties the needed majority. This would throw the election into the House of Representatives, which would then elect a candidate the Kristol group found acceptable. The fact that this would nullify the largest vote ever registered for a Republican...

    Donald Trump's campaign has alerted Senate Republicans that he won't have much money to spend fending off attacks from Hillary Clinton over the next couple months. The notice came when Paul Manafort, Trump's senior advisor, met with a group of Senate Republican chiefs of staff for lunch last week, sources familiar with the meeting told the Washington Examiner. The admission suggests that Trump will be far more dependent on the GOP brass for money than he has led voters to believe, but it's consistent with his reliance on the Republican National Committee to provide a ground game in battleground states....

For about a decade, the Massachusetts-based nonprofit has provided free software that lets activists and political dissidents visit websites and exchange messages outside the scrutiny of oppressive governments. But the same software HAS ALLOWED HIDDEN MARKETS FOR CHILD PORNOGRAPHY, GUNS, ILLEGAL DRUGS AND STOLEN CREDIT CARD INFORMATION TO FLOURISH, while heightening U.S. intelligence agencies' worries about technology providing an unbreakable wall...

    Indonesia has toughened its punishments for child rapists to include the death penalty and chemical castration. It follows outrage over several recent violent crimes, including the gang-rape and murder of a 14-year-old girl. President Joko Widodo said the regulation was "intended to overcome the crisis caused by sexual violence against children". Previously, the maximum sentence for rape, of either an adult or a child, was 14 years in jail. People jailed for sexual offences against children may also now be made to wear electronic monitoring devices after their release.

The ministry said the delegation decided to return to Tehran without signing the final agreement despite two days of extensive talks. “The Iranian Organization of Hajj and Visit will be held responsible before God and the people of Iran for the inability of its pilgrims to perform Hajj this year,” the ministry said in a statement carried by the Saudi Press Agency. The ministry said it offered...

    Securing pilot Nadiya Savchenko's release from Russian captivity was a PR coup for Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko but the outspoken woman feted as the nation's "Joan of Arc" may ultimately prove a thorn in his side. While in jail, Savchenko was named a lawmaker in what is now the main opposition party at a time of growing disillusion with the slow pace of reforms and tackling corruption. She has also condemned a key plank of Poroshenko's ceasefire deal with pro-Russian separatists granting them autonomy in eastern Ukraine. "She may just ask all those who are now in power - what...

    Jesse Hughes – lead vocalist of the rock band Eagles of Death Metal, which was performing at the Bataclan theatre in Paris when terrorists attacked and killed 89 fans and 130 people overall last November – believes the fear of offending Muslims is making the West vulnerable. And the fear of offending Muslims, he says in an interview with Taki's Magazine, is a by-product of the culture of liberalism and political correctness being propagated by Western countries. Asked during the interview if he thought political correctness was "killing our natural instincts and making us vulnerable" in light of the terrorist...
  • Harry Truman Saved My Life, But Barack Obama Doesn’t Approve

    It’s an incontrovertible fact that millions of lives were saved because President Harry Truman dropped the bomb on Hiroshima. I know because I’m one of them. My father enlisted in the U.S. Navy the day he turned 18 in 1945. He finished his basic training as the Allies were preparing for “Operation Downfall” – the code name for the invasion of the Japanese mainland. Experts predicted it would be ten times bloodier than Iwo Jima. Casualty estimates ran into the millions – for both sides. Lest we forget, Imperial Japan was a ruthless warrior culture whose war crimes rivaled the...

    Homeland Security has discovered more three-year amnesty applications it approved in defiance of a federal judge’s firm injunction, lawyers told the court late Wednesday — less than a week after the judge delivered a vicious spanking to the administration for repeatedly bungling the case. Leon Rodriguez, director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, said as they were preparing for their latest update to the court, they discovered three more three-year amnesties they had sent out, after Judge Andrew Hanen had ordered them not to. Mr. Rodriguez blamed “human error” and said the permits, known specifically as employment authorization documents or...

  • Korean Air Plane Catches Fire at Tokyo Airport, Hundreds of Passengers Evacuated

    About 300 passengers and crew members have been evacuated from a Korean Air Boeing 777 at Tokyo's Haneda airport in dramatic scenes after one of the engines caught fire. TV footage from the airport showed the plane, which was bound for South Korea's Gimpo International, surrounded by red fire trucks and with the area around its left wing doused in foam. The plane's inflatable emergency evacuation slides had all been deployed. "The flight had a fire on Engine No.1," a Korean Air spokesman said.

    At the RoboUniverse expo in New York City, robots of all shapes and sizes were being put to work. Companies showed off automated machines designed to perform tasks that many humans would consider less than desirable. “There are certain tasks in our society… that will stay on and not be attractive for humans to do. And we cannot get rid of them if we want to live our lives in the usual fashion,” said Preben Hjørnet, founder and CEO of robotics startup Blue Workforce. “Robots have no conscience, no self-awareness, so they’ll never be social,” Hjørnet added, “But they don’t...
  • Why Is Jake Tapper Afraid to Ask Hillary Clinton About ‘Clinton Cash’?

    CNN anchor Jake Tapper has interviewed Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on at least four separate occasions since she announced her White House bid last June — but has yet to ask the former Secretary of State a single question concerning the alarming allegations laid out in meticulous detail in the New York Times best-selling book Clinton Cash, written by Government Accountability Institute President and Breitbart Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer. Tapper, an alumnus of ABC News and Salon.com, interviewed Clinton last October, once in February, again in April, and earlier this month. Each time, he failed to ask the Democratic...
  • Twitter Abuse - '50% of Misogynistic Tweets From Women'

    Half of all misogynistic tweets posted on Twitter come from women, a study suggests. Over a three-week period, think tank counted the number of uses of two particular words as indicators of misogyny. It found evidence of large-scale misogyny, with 6,500 unique users targeted by 10,000 abusive tweets in the UK alone. Twitter boss Jack Dorsey has said that tackling abuse is a priority. The research comes as UK MPs - Yvette Cooper, Maria Miller, Stella Creasy, Jess Philips - alongside former Liberal Democrat minister Jo Swinson, launch their Reclaim the Internet campaign, in response to growing public concern about...
