    NEW YORK (AP) -- Donald Trump says he took the moral high ground at the first presidential debate by not mentioning the infidelities of former President Bill Clinton. But he hinted at them, talked about them immediately afterward and then sent his campaign's top backers out to do the same."An impeachment for lying," Trump said Thursday at a campaign rally in New Hampshire, referring to the effort to remove Bill Clinton from office for lying about his affair with Monica Lewinsky. "Remember that? Impeach."The Republican nominee's decision to dredge up the former president's sexual history is a risky move in...

    This poll is gonna be updated from here on out daily at 830a. Last week same poll had Trump up by 5. These are the first post debate #'s. Since its been up since 830a I'm surprised to be first to post this today. Trump has to stick to his Vision during debate, and not try to get caught up in her stupid data bombs. His vision on immigration, economics, and everything else is so much letter and he needs to stay focused on conveying such, and bring up her scandals at the same time.

    It’s a good thing for labor unions that Antonin Scalia died earlier this year, Tom Perez, President Obama’s Labor Secretary, said on Thursday. Perez, a progressive whom Hillary Clinton considered choosing as her running mate, was answering questions during a session at the Washington Ideas Forum when he was asked about strategies to increase labor union membership. “Well, I think you have all these — there’s an unmitigated assault on labor unions across a number of states and there was a case that went before the Supreme Court recently, and frankly if Justice Scalia had not passed away it would...

Faram and Sam Fellman, September 29, 2016 he Navy deep-sixed all of its 91 enlisted ratings titles Thursday, marking the beginning of an overhaul of the rigid career structure that has existed since the Continental Navy in a radical shift sure to reverberate through the fleet and the veterans community beyond. Sailors will no longer be identified by their job title, say, Fire Controlman 1st Class Joe Sailor, effective immediately. Instead, that would be Petty Officer 1st Class Joe Sailor.

    Israeli archaeologists have unearthed a 2,900-year-old gate-shrine they say confirms the biblical story of King Hezekiah, who mandated the worship of God and the rejection of all other deities. The gate-shrine in Tel Lachish National Park was uncovered decades ago, but a new excavation has completely exposed the gate, which is the largest one known from the First Temple period. "The size of the gate is consistent with the historical and archaeological knowledge we possess, whereby Lachish was a major city and the most important one after Jerusalem," said excavation director Sa'ar Ganor. According to the Book of Kings, he...

    As was expected, Monday night’s presidential debate moderator, Lester Holt couldn’t exactly hide his bias towards Hillary Clinton…. The Daily Caller points out, “Holt interrupted Trump a whopping 41 times, either to “fact-check” the Republican nominee, or to ask a follow-up question. Clinton was only interrupted seven times during the course of the 90-minute debate.” The so-called NBC journalist interrupted Trump 10 times during an exchange about the GOP nominee’s position on the Iraq war, and demanded at least 5 times why Trump thought he had better judgment than Clinton. A Breitbart analysis of the debate transcript notes that Lester...

Conservatives have a slight advantage where these issues are the only ones considered by people when deciding how to vote. If they could redirect their efforts to keeping government out of the kitchen they might have something. Uncle Sam has decided what we eat and drink is somehow his business.

To make sure of this, politically unhinged Alec Baldwin will be portraying Trump. Perhaps Darrell Hammond is not partisan enough and plays it for that old fashioned thing called laughs.

    One would think there is protocol in place for when a presidential nominee falls ill, but surprisingly there is no official guideline. In fact, until the Twenty-Fifth Amendment was passed after the Wilson presidency, there was no clear definition of what being “unable to fulfill the duties of President” meant. With Hillary Clinton’s recent health issues, we have to consider the very real possibility that our next president might fall ill, which poses the question: “What happens next?” For that answer we must look to history, and the most obvious example is Woodrow Wilson. President Wilson suffered a massive stroke...

    A report by a United Nations organization calls for the international body to seize control of information shared over the Internet should the governments of member nations fail to pass sufficient cybersecurity regulations.In the document, called “Trends in Telecommunication Reform: Smart Regulation in a Broadband World,” the UN’s International Telecommunication Union (ITU) points to the specter of an attack on the cyber infrastructure of a country as justification for the world body’s assumption of regulation and monitoring of traffic on the information superhighway.That frightening prospect was first reported by the News Limited Network out of Australia. Paola Totaro and Claire...

    Fewer people are watching the NFL on TV, and no one really knows why. The NFL Players Association admits that the trend is an obvious concern. The league has kept quiet, likely fearful that talking about the situation would lend credence to the dynamic, possibly causing other fans who are still watching the games to say, “Maybe I should stop, too.” The decline has become a mystery, for the media and surely for the NFL.

    Republican nominee Donald Trump's remarks on women haven't gone unnoticed by Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly, who had a fiery exchange with Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway over her dismissing accusations of misogyny made against her candidate. During an interview on "The Kelly File" Wednesday night, Conway complained the Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton focused too much on Trump's history with women. Conway said Trump's opinion was that "it's not nice that you're running hundreds of millions of dollars in negative ads against me, and he has a point."

    President Barack Obama’s drive to hand off control of Internet domains to a foreign multi-national operation will give some very unpleasant regimes equal say over the future of online speech and commerce. In fact, they are likely to have much more influence than America, because they will collectively push hard for a more tightly controlled Internet, and they are known for aggressively using political and economic pressure to get what they want.
