    Democratic pollster Patrick Caddell told Breitbart News: “Trump is closing everywhere and states that have not been in play are coming into play, like Minnesota.” Caddell said those states that had been considered battleground states are not moving as fast, but all are inside the margin of error. In the battleground states, the Clinton campaign has built the infrastructure and made the investments, so they have the ability to fight there what is becoming a national tide, he said. “Part of that is because the Clinton campaign, well both campaigns, but particularly the Clinton campaign has spent so much of...

    Tomorrow night we’ll see the much-awaited matchup one-on-one “debate” between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Her staff is working with the debate commission to erase height and stamina advantages of her opponent. They asked that the debate be by seated opponents which was refused as was their effort to allow her to stand on a hidden stool. Her podium will be lowered though so when the camera sweeps from candidate to candidate viewers might not notice he is considerably taller than she. Outside of the debate hall in Charlotte, North Carolina, another drama is taking place. Apparently "Black Lives Matters"...

    Am retired DC lawyer. Old friend at ABC bureau there says NBC is strongly suspected of paying $35,000 for Charlotte shooting. Source says they received some inquiring calls from perp's family lawyer regarding ABC's possible "interest" in obtaining video, but when "The Suits" called him back, they were effectively told "the deal is already done." Only a rumor, but remember, DC lives on rumors, 95% are usually true, and this is from a usually very reliable source.

    Keith Scott was killed in an officer-involved shooting this week and since then, the media has worked feverishly to paint a narrative that the police are racist (even though the officer who shot Scott was black) and that Scott was an innocent man, sitting in his car reading a book. But there’s more to this story than the media wants you to know about. First, it has been reported that Scott was armed and defied the officer’s orders, which led to his death. Second, his criminal background sheds a great deal of light on the situation. Christian Times Newspaper reported...

    Shortened title. Full title: Why are out-of-state Charlotte rioters not being prosecuted for crossing state lines to engage in destruction and rioting? The non-enforcement of the law has become sport in the past eight years. Hidden under gimmicks such as “prosecutorial discretion” and other feigns, the Department of Justice and other such entities have seemed to turn their backs when full frontal execution of the law was required. A curious disinterest for certain laws is in play. We receive a constant dose of stories revealing the non-enforcement of immigration law. In lockstep is the complete disregard for the laws on...

    But remember these are "peaceful" protests. You can tell, because Charlotte hasn't been entirely burned to the ground. The racist subtext is also readily apparent. Once you criminalize the term, "All Lives Matter", then some people's lives clearly don't matter. And it's not hard to guess which way that cuts. Here are two of the videos spotlighted by Blue Lives Matter. Here's some of the context. In the video, a group of predominantly black men approach what appears to a white man on his knees with his hands in the air. At one point the person shooting the video spins...

He had been convicted of assault with a deadly weapon in two different states and convicted of assault in three states. He had been hit with “assault with intent to kill” charges in the 90s. His record of virtue included “assault on a child under 12” and “assault on a female.” The media spin; “Family and neighbors call Scott a quiet ‘family man.’” Nothing says “quiet” like “assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill”...

    In moments of social unrest featuring violence and crime, one would expect the only proper role of the taxpayer-funded federal government is to quash the disturbance. However, a unit of progressive attorneys within the Department of Justice has been at the center of every significant riot during the Obama administration, and this unit -- the Community Relations Service, or CRS -- was not at those scenes to protect the safety of all citizens. In fact, the CRS was caught encouraging the chaos. Not only did CRS side only with the protesters and not with law enforcement, they actively facilitated...

On Friday, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, a 40-year-old black man named Terence Crutcher had car troubles. The police approached him. Crutcher responded by putting his hands in the air. The Tulsa police used a Taser on Crutcher. A Tulsa police officer, Betty Shelby, then shot him dead. They left him bleeding in the street for almost a minute before rendering any...

    It all started this week with the decisions by the NCAA and the ACC to move their championship games out of North Carolina in protest of HB 2, commonly known as “the bathroom bill.” Shortly after that, the Christian Action League began to hear rumors that some lawmakers were talking about either amending the law or fully repealing it. Those dreaded rumors were confirmed when lawmakers that had previously supported HB 2 started telling the Press the issue should be revisited. The latest news is very disturbing! The Raleigh News and Observer (N&O) is now reporting that the North Carolina...

    Witnesses corroborate, and no book was found anywhere -- Police Chief: Officers Warned Scott to Drop Gun Not that there is ever a good reason to have a riot, but the Charlotte rioters might be interested to know they bought a line of crap from the media, which just sent 23 people to the hospital and unleashed hours of chaos in the streets for no reason whatsoever. White-cops-shoot-unarmed-black-man? Don’t think so. As the video below demonstrates, the media caused all this. More than 1,000 people heard on the news that a guy holding a book was shot by police, and...

    Public Policy Polling (PPP) ^ | 09/21/2016 | Staff
    The Presidential race in North Carolina is about as tight as it can be, and it's also becoming increasingly clear who will end up deciding the winner in the state: voters who would like to continue the direction of President Obama's leadership, but who also strongly dislike Hillary Clinton. Donald Trump leads the race in the state with 45% to 43% for Hillary Clinton and 6% for Gary Johnson. But when Johnson voters and undecideds are asked who they would pick if they had to choose between Clinton and Trump, the contest moves into a tie at 47%.

    Religious leaders in Charlotte, North Carolina are no longer condemning violent protests, but instead are warning that if things do not change between the government and African-Americans, more violence will ensue. One pastor also called for an economic boycott throughout the city. "We are watching a modern day lynching," he said. "If we don't get justice, this is what you see (referring to the violent protests Tuesday night) and you are going to see more of that. And we are not going to tell are brothers and sisters to stop."

Raw emotion captured as veteran confronts Charlotte riot police: ‘I don’t hate you, man!’ But facts have become irrelevant in President Barack Obama’s post-racial America, as we see in...

Scott's family had said he was reading a book in his car when he was shot. Putney also said that while witnesses and evidence indicate Scott had a handgun when he was shot, Putney could not say for certain Wednesday whether Scott was pointing the gun at officers.
