    The nine-second video of two federal bureaucrats the White House posted on its blog last week was notable for something it omitted. That something was very big -- and putting it on display might not have fit with the apparent propaganda purpose of the video. The video itself starred EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy and Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx, who sat side-by-side at a table. The video starts with McCarthy and Foxx simultaneously scratching their signatures onto separate and apparently singular sheets of paper. Eight seconds into the nine-second clip, when McCarthy has finished signing her name, she looks up and...

    Donald Trump laid out new details in a pre-taped interview that aired Wednesday about the border wall he has called to be built on the U.S.-Mexico border. "I think the height could be 35 to 45 feet. That's a good height. That's a good height. Anywhere in that neighborhood. Could be higher," Trump told Fox News' Sean Hannity during the second part of an Austin, Texas, town hall. The Republican nominee said he plans to install a fence along 1,000 miles of the 2,000-mile border because only that portion needs to be reinforced. Trump said the current border allows drug...

    West Virginia Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin’s daughter, Mylan CEO Heather Bresch, who has come under fire for her company’s widely-slammed decision to raise the cost of the EpiPen by 461 Percent since 2007, raised her salary by a whopping 671 percent during her tenure at the pharmaceutical giant. Bresch’s annual income jumped from $2,453,456 in 2007 to $18,931,068 in 2015, coinciding with the astounding price increase on the life-saving emergency allergy shot, The Chicago Tribune reports. In addition to her astoundingly high salary, Bresch reportedly took advantage of a number of unprecedented perks, including personal use of the company’s aircraft....

The same day the hostages were released. On August 4th President Obama held a press conference to discuss the controversy and denied it was a “ransom payment” (see video).

    There's nothing like knowing Arabic – that is, being privy to the Muslim world's internal conversations on a daily basis – to disabuse oneself of the supposed differences between so-called "moderate" and "radical" Muslims. Consider the case of Egypt's Dr. Ahmed al-Tayeb. Hardly one to be dismissed as a fanatic who is ignorant of the true tenets of Islam, Tayeb's credentials and career are impressive: he holds a Ph.D. in Islamic philosophy from the Paris-Sorbonne University; formerly served as grand imam of Egypt, meaning he was the supreme interpreter of Islamic law; and since 2003 has been president of Al-Azhar...

    FORT HUACHUCA — The Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation is facing a more than $500,000 cut to recreation programs starting Oct. 1. As a result, DFMWR had to make tough and potentially unpopular decisions to rebalance its assets and make every dollar count. Up to this point, some recreation programs have been subsidized. This is no longer possible and passing along the costs associated with these services is prohibitive, especially within Outdoor Recreation. Outdoor Recreation and the Sportsman's Center will continue all services with the exception of arms rental and ammunition sales, which will end Aug. 28.

In one cable sent to Clinton, U.S. officials in Brussels warned Russia was about to strongarm U.S. ally Ukraine into a deal for "long-term supply of nuclear fuel" that could "shut" the U.S. company Westinghouse out of the market and extend Moscow's influence over Europe.

But they say Trump shouldn't just make the appeal at his rallies, which have nearly all-white audiences and often are held in majority white communities. Instead, they say Trump must go to the inner cities he's started mentioning in his campaign speeches. Meanwhile, many other black voters say the New York billionaire's outreach is misguided or even offensive, and they say they still plan to back Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Two more states, North Carolina and Kansas, are close to having only one Obamacare insurer, health policy experts note. Alabama will be down to a single insurance company next year because Humana and UnitedHealthcare announced their departure. Aetna and UnitedHealthcare exited South Carolina.

    On Tuesday’s NBC Today, Al Roker used an 8 a.m. ET hour weather report to mount his climate change soapbox and issue a dire warning to viewers: “Well, it has been a really hot year and it just continues. 15 consecutive months of record warmth, global temperatures....But look what happens if we project out to 2050, look at how much further you start to see that deep red of 50-plus days above 100.” The weather map on screen displayed statistics from the climate change activist group Climate Central. Roker continued with the doomsday predictions: “And by 2100, New York City...

    U.S. Traffic Fatalities Continued to Surge in First Half of 2016 Deaths rose 9%, extending a trend that began two years ago as the economy improved and travel increased Traffic fatalities were up 9% in the first six months of this year compared with the same period last year. By Beckie Strum Traffic fatalities rose 9% in the first six months of 2016, compared with a year earlier, as a stronger economy and falling gas prices encouraged Americans to spend more time behind the wheel, the National Safety Council said on Tuesday. Traffic fatalities have been trending upward since 2014,...

    A new analysis of how the United States "vets" immigrants reveals that written visa and citizenship surveys ask if applicants are World War II Nazi veterans or sympathizers, but not members of ISIS, al Qaeda or other Islamic terror groups at war with America. While State Department and the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service branch of the Department of Homeland Security do ask if immigrants have been involved in terrorism, the most well known of over a dozen terrorist groups aren't listed in applications, according to the analysis from homeland security expert Mark A. Sauter.

    The Obama administration is stonewalling Congress by refusing to cooperate with congressional inquiries into how $1.3 billion was sent to Iran as part of the deal to release our hostages. We already know that $400 million in cash was delivered as part of a $1.7-billion settlement of an outstanding debt owed to Iran. But how the rest of that money was delivered and whom it was delivered to remains a mystery. The question is important, if only to show that the Obama administration lied about why it was necessary to make a cash payment to the Islamic Republic. They insist...

    The Heroin Task Force formed by Seattle Mayor Ed Murray and King County Executive Dow Constantine has endorsed opening safe-consumption sites for addicts, which would be a first in the U.S. But some say getting homeless addicts off the streets requires an even bolder move.

    West Virginia University (WVU) has told its 29,000 students that they are breaking federal law if don’t agree to use the pronouns — including ‘he’ or ‘she,’ ‘zir’ or ‘hir’ etc. — preferred by each person who claims to be transgender. That policy means if a biological man — for example, famous transgender athlete Bruce Jenner — says he “identifies” his gender as female, then all other students must refer to the man as a “she,” or else be treated as a law-breaker.

    The Democratic Party often warns us that mixing big money and politics will corrupt democracy. They must have nominated Hillary Clinton to prove it. The Clinton Foundation was ostensibly set up to solve the world’s most pressing problems. Though it’s done some fine work, its most fruitful program has been leveraging Clinton’s position in the State Department to enrich her family, friends and cronies. It’s against federal law for charities to act in the interests of private business or individuals. Yet the Clinton Foundation secured high-paying gigs for its namesakes and helped for-profit corporations with family ties set up lucrative...

    It’s a good thing for Hillary Clinton that Michael Bloomberg decided against running for president this year. If America’s self-appointed uber-Nanny had thrown his hat in the ring, he would have made Clinton work overtime to retain her title as the least trusted presidential candidate in American history. As the Washington Post reported on July 25, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump “now has a large lead on Clinton when it comes to honesty and trustworthiness.” Bloomberg would also trail Trump in terms of honestly presenting the facts if he were judged on the basis of the claims that his anti-gun...
