    The number of gun-related background checks performed in July far exceeded those of any previous July, newly released numbers from the FBI show. The National Instant Criminal Background Check System, or NICS, processed nearly 2.2 million checks last month. That represents an increase of almost 600,000 checks over the previous record set last year. It is also an increase of more than a million checks over July 2011. The July record is the latest in a string of 15 record-setting months for firearm background checks. July also saw an increase over June’s numbers as the gun industry’s seasonal lull comes...

    Following in the footsteps of the record-setting cool air mass in mid-July, a second blast of air with polar origins will invade the eastern U.S. to close July. Like the original, the sequel will be glorious. This taste of September may not be quite as strong mid-July’s version, but should produce temperatures 10-20 degrees below normal across a large swath of the eastern U.S. by early Tuesday.

    Treasury reports $1.09T deficit through JulyBy Erik Wasson - 08/10/11 03:13 PM ET The Treasury Department on Wednesday reported the nation has run a $1.099 trillion budget deficit through July. The deficit is about $70 billion less than last year's budget deficit at this point in the fiscal year. The reason is higher government revenues, the Treasury statement said.

    Sarah Palin, left, poses with celebrity impersonator Cecilia Thompson in Boston last week, Source: AP ~snips~ Reporters were reduced to begging for a hint of what time she might be leaving and then jumping red lights just to keep up. "Even we don't know where we're going the next day," said her father, Chuck Heath. "It's been fun, sneaking out the back of hotels, leaving at midnight." It was a chance for revenge on the media, which was not kind to Palin when she was chosen as John McCain's running mate in the 2008 presidential election. "Three years ago, it...

    Reuters ^ | 08/04/2010 | Caroline Valetkevitch
    Private sector employment rose slightly more than expected in July, easing some concerns about labor market weakness ahead of a key government jobs report later this week. Private employers added 42,000 jobs in July, compared with a revised gain of 19,000 in June, the report by a payrolls processor ADP Employer Services showed on Wednesday. The rise in hiring was slightly higher than an estimate from economists surveyed by Reuters for a gain of 40,000 private-sector jobs. The June ADP figure originally was reported as a gain of 13,000 jobs. However, while above market expectations the gains still show the...

    A group of Republican senators has written to top immigration officials in the Obama administration asking them to reveal whether large-scale plans are under way to provide a so-called non-legislative version of amnesty. The lawmakers cite an 11-page draft document written by staff to the director of the Citizenship and Immigration Service that says they are reviewing several executive orders and other mechanisms that effectively would serve as a substitute for comprehensive immigration reforms.  The objective would be to promote “family unity, foster economic growth … and reduce the threat of removal for certain individuals present in the United States...
