    Donald Trump still holds the top spot with 25 percent of likely Republican caucus-goers. Carson takes second with 18 percent and Bush follows at 10 percent. Carson’s rise from 6.3 percent in the April Loras poll comes just one day after a Monmouth University poll found him tied with Trump at the top of the Hawkeye State polls. The retired neurosurgeon has been steadily gaining ground over the past few weeks and has come in second to Trump in two recent national polls.

Obama said that he promised Goforth’s widow that he would continue to praise bravery of police officers who served their communities.

The woman explains that although there are many things young people do well, parallel parking isn’t one of them. She then gives two options: “Either take the bus or get Liberty Mutual insurance,” because...

     Drones can now legally fight criminals in the United States with non-lethal weapons thanks to a recently amended bill in North Dakota. The law’s author, Representative Rick Becker, originally wanted to require police to secure a warrant for drone surveillance.But, then local law enforcement managed to sneak in the right to equip drones with tasers or rubber bullets by amending the original prohibition against lethal and non-lethal force to just limiting lethal weapons. Becker worries that this new franken-bill will have dramatic unintended consequences.“I think it’s important to maintain the humanity in making decisions to deploy weapons against another individual,” he...

    A federal judge has ordered Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis and her deputies to appear in his courtroom Thursday and explain why Davis should not be held in contempt of court for refusing to issue marriage licenses. Shortly after opening her doors Tuesday, Davis told two same-sex couples who asked for marriage licenses that she would not issue them, despite a federal court injunction ordering her to do so. In a brief but tense encounter between Davis and a couple dozen marriage-equality demonstrators who crowded into her office, the clerk repeatedly refused to comply with the court order.

The firm will also trim about 1,000 core contractors from its workforce. Beaudo said ConocoPhillips has informed employees, city and state agencies that more than 500 of the firm’s...

    Russia formally staked its claim Tuesday to a large portion of the Arctic Ocean that includes the North Pole, even planting a flag on the floor of the ocean below the area to exercise its control. If the United Nations committee that arbitrates sea boundaries accepts Russia’s claim, the waters will be subject to Moscow’s oversight on economic matters, including fishing and oil and gas drilling, though Russia will not have full sovereignty. Under a 1982 United Nations convention, the Law of the Sea, a nation may claim an exclusive economic zone over the continental shelf abutting its shores. If...

The four emails originally were marked classified after a review by career officials at the State Department. But...

    Washington (CNN) CNN is amending the criteria for its Republican presidential debate on September 16, possibly opening the door for Carly Fiorina to join the other top-tier candidates on the stage. The cause: a lack of national public polling following the August 6 debate has so far provided only three new polls to determine the lineup for the Reagan Presidential Debate, according to a CNN statement. As a result, CNN reevaluated its criteria and decided to add a provision that better reflects the state of the race since the first Republican presidential debate in August, the network announced Tuesday.

    Monday night at the GLACIER Conference in Anchorage, AK, President Barack Obama attempted to isolate those who question whether climate change is man-made saying they are “on their own shrinking island.” Obama said, “We know human activity is changing the climate that is beyond dispute. Everything else is politics.” [Snip] "The time to plead ignorance is surely past.”

    A quarter of likely Democratic primary voters unsure of whom to vote for in 2016 have a favorable view of Hillary Clinton as the former secretary of state disputes controversy surrounding her private email system. In contrast, 57 percent of undecided Democratic voters hold an unfavorable view of Clinton, according to a Public Policy Polling survey released Tuesday. Among all likely Democratic primary voters, Clinton is enjoying a favorable/unfavorable rating of 63/26 percent, her worst to date. Clinton fairs particularly poorly among voters who support her competitors. Eighty percent of Democrats who plan to vote for former Rhode Island Gov....

    Packed trains have arrived in Austria and Germany after Hungarian police suddenly allowed migrants camped around Budapest rail stations to leave the country without visa checks. Frustrated refugees, entering Hungary at a rate of more than 2,000 a day during August, have set up ever-growing makeshift camps outside the two main stations in Budapest. “Germany Yes! Hungary No! Let us leave!” chanted hundreds of mostly Syrians during weekend protests, demanding that a recent easing of asylum rules by Berlin meant they could finally go. The Schengen agreement requires refugees to seek asylum in the first country they enter under the...

    Austrian and Hungarian efforts to stem a growing tide of migrants sowed chaos along their frontier on Monday as Germany’s chancellor warned that Europe’s open-border policy was in danger unless it united in its response to the crisis. In Austria, police toughened controls on the border, triggering miles of traffic jams as they checked cars and trucks for evidence of people smuggling. They said they were compelled to conduct the highway searches after discovering the decomposed bodies of 71 people, most of them believed to be Syrian refugees, in an abandoned truck last week. Authorities also stopped and boarded several...

    Ooouuuch. My sides are still aching after last week's comical announcement by GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush that he had snagged the coveted endorsement of notorious electoral reject Eric Cantor, the former House majority leader kicked to the curb by disgusted voters in Virginia's 2014 primary election. Newsflash to GOP elites: Getting Cantor's support is not like landing a prized marlin. It's like hooking one of those hideous bottom-feeding blobfish named the world's ugliest creature. Inside the Beltway, The Washington Post reported, "Cantor remains well-liked and respected in the Virginia business community and among the Republican donor class in the...

    “Planned Parenthood is using virtually every tool in its lobbying arsenal to defend against attacks from conservatives and anti-abortion activists,” a story in the Washington Post begins. “Planned Parenthood’s counter-offensive is widespread and varied and is unfolding inside and outside the Beltway.” A huge part of that was rolled out last week when Planned Parenthood had allies in the media publicize a report it had commissioned and paid for from not just any Democratic opposition research firm, but one known for being particularly partisan and hostile to social conservatives. The Democratic opposition research team’s report said that undercover videos revealing...

    Baier even had a "nuclear option" at the ready for Trump...[The script] took a page from Trump's "Celebrity Apprentice" TV show. It went like this: "Mr. Trump, in your business you have rules. You follow rules. We have rules on this stage. We don't want to have to escort you to the elevator outside this boardroom." "We're hoping we don't have to use it," Baier said later. "[But] we're locked and loaded."

    ·In the U.S., a gauge on factory activity from the Institute for Supply Management saw a bigger-than-expected drop in August to 51.1 from 52.7 in July. Wall Street anticipated a shallower drop to 52.6. The reading, though still in expansion territory, was the lowest since May 2013. The global picture wasn’t much better, and is what helped drive the selloff in world markets. Overnight, data from China showed the nation’s manufacturing sector slipped to a three-year low and back into contraction territory for the first time in six months, though mostly in-line with expectations, while the services sector also showed...

    GOP presidential candidate Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) on Tuesday continued to push back against front-runner Donald Trump's campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again,” instead of going after the billionaire businessman himself. “There’s one other candidate running, he says he’s going to make America great again,” Rubio told about 200 people gathered in a community center in Nevada, according to The New York Times. “I understand what he means by that. I don’t mean that as a slight," the Florida senator insisted, according to the newspaper. “I would remind everyone America is great,” Rubio continued. “There’s no nation on earth I would...
