    Security has been stepped up in the German city of Dresden, following two bomb attacks on a mosque and a conference center Monday evening. No one was injured in the attacks, which included two homemade devices, according to police. The bombings come ahead of next weekend's German Unity Day celebrations, which German Chancellor Angela Merkel is expected to attend. The celebrations mark the 26th anniversary of the reunification of East and West Germany. The explosions -- first at the mosque and then at the International Congress Center -- happened within minutes of each other, leading police to believe they're related....

    In his first public appearance after the Presidential debate at Hofstra University on Monday, Donald Trump was welcomed by tens of thousands of enthusiastic supporters to a Florida airplane hanger. Trump’s supporters waited in long lines in the rain and lightning for hours to cheer on Trump. Even after the hanger had filled up, it took more than six minutes to video the whole line.

    TEHRAN, Iran — Before being elected president of Iran in June 2013, Hassan Rouhani was known as a close friend and constant companion of Expediency Council Chairman Ayatollah Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani. Rouhani’s management of the initial round of nuclear negotiations with the West — the failed engagement with Britain, France and Germany over 2003-2005 — earned him the nickname “the Diplomat Sheikh.” However, throughout his career, including when he was secretary of the Supreme National Security Council during the presidency of Mohammad Khatami, when he was removed from this post by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and finally when he started...

    After all my years in public life I am sickened by the intellectual dishonesty, arrogance, and smugness of what Nassim Taleb calls the Intellectual Yet Idiots. The IYI's showed up immediately after the debate. They stacked the deck against Trump with Lester Holt's one-sided questions and interventions. The Holt-Clinton team was glib, articulate, and self-congratulatory. However, they lost. Trump wins strategically because in a blunt, clear style, he is saying things most Americans believe. Trump's opponents, including Holt and Clinton, felt good after the debate because their side was glib, articulate, and said things they and their friends believe to...

    From a charred Hebrew scroll, researchers resurrected one of the earliest known versions of the Old Testament using a new digital reconstruction technique that may prove invaluable in revealing words from other previously unreadable finds, said scientists who plan to make the imaging software freely available. In research published in Science Advances Wednesday, computer analysts at the University of Kentucky in Lexington detailed the technology they used to reveal text within a roll of parchment reduced to charcoal in a burning synagogue 1,500 years ago, “virtually unwrapping” the scroll without ever actually touching the artifact. While important to archaeologists, the...

She even said "Trump is not a good person, the person you see now is not who he really is. I tell my story and I hope to change minds." This woman is an utter shill.I wouldn't doubt she is getting paid heavily by the Hillary campaign for this. She has apparently held a 19,20 year grudge...

  • Saudi Ministers’ Reduced Salary Levels Revealed

    Al Arabiya ^ | Tuesday, 27 September
    Saudi ministers will see a drop in their salaries of 20 percent, while members of Shura council’s wages are to be 15 percent less. The move follows a royal decree and Cabinet statement released Monday, in which the Saudi government announced the suspension of wage increases. During its meeting the Saudi cabinet also agreed to cancel the payment of bonuses, allowances, rewards and financial benefits. According to statistics, a minister’s salary amounts to 51,750 Saudi Riyals (SAR) – that’s nearly $13,800. But with the wage cut this figure will be reduced to 41,400SAR ($11,034). There are 143 Ministers, with a...

    When several Donald Trump campaign signs went missing from Charlie Tulumello’s front yard, he assumed it was just neighborhood kids playing a prank. Never did he think the thief was a former administrator at a local college, and a PhD in his 60s. After the thief struck twice, Tulumello decided to place a pair of trail cameras on trees in his front yard to catch any overnight action. Three times, a man — and twice with his dog — walked onto Tulumello’s property and ripped a total of seven signs out of the ground. ... Dr. Norman Muir, the former...

    Entrepreneur Elon Musk unveiled his contrarian vision for sending humans to Mars in roughly the next decade, and ultimately setting up colonies there, relying on bold moves by private enterprise, instead of more-gradual steps previously proposed by Washington. Mr. Musk—who in 14 years transformed his closely held rocket company, Space Exploration Technologies Corp., into a global presence—envisions hosts of giant, reusable rockets standing more than 300 feet tall eventually launching fleets of carbon-fiber spacecraft into orbit. The boosters would return to Earth, blast off again into the heavens with “tanker” spaceships capable of refueling the initial vehicles, and then send...

    The Obama administration is planning to relinquish American control over a central portion of Internet governance. The implications of this move range from control by an international bureaucracy to totalitarian regimes locking up entire portions of the Internet, according to experts. At issue is US control over the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). “ICANN is arguably the single most powerful institution in the world as it relates to the global economy and communication. It has oversight authority over 300 million domain names, which number is increasing every day”, states Internet pioneer, Jeff Baron.

Nine percent (9%) were undecided on the question of who won the debate. Among those who were undecided (5%) before the debate, 31% changed their mind and now say they’ll support the New York businessman. By comparison, only 11% of previously undecided voters said...

For most Utahns, this date is not a cause for celebration. It’s a source of anger toward what many see as an out-of-touch and overbearing federal government Infamously, the Clinton administration failed to notify the people of Utah prior to announcing the monument designation—probably because the administration knew that nearly everyone in the state was opposed to the idea. Utah’s congressional delegation, state and county leaders, and local residents all warned that a...

    The lifetime of Shimon Peres, who died Tuesday at age 93 after suffering a stroke on Sept. 13, spans the lifetime of the state of Israel. Born in Belarus, his family moved to Tel Aviv when he was 11, more than a decade before the country was founded. He lived on a kibbutz, when those communal settlements and a utopian, leftist ideology defined the nascent state. He also served in the pre-independence militia that became the Israeli Defense Forces, the institution that would ultimately define Israeli society. A hawk in the early decades of the country’s existence, Peres was a...

    Republican candidate Donald Trump said, incorrectly, during Monday night's presidential debate that the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, a federal law enforcement agency, had just endorsed him. Since government agencies cannot issue endorsements, Mr. Trump was likely referring to the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council, a union representing some 5,000 immigration officers, which backed Trump in a campaign announcement Monday morning. The latest show of support adds to Trump's endorsements from other law enforcement unions, including the National Border Patrol Council, which represents some 16,500 immigration officers, and the Fraternal Order of Police, which represents about 330,000 officers nationwide.

    At last night’s presidential debate Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton made all kinds of attacks on each other. But on one notable issue, they were in complete agreement: they both think people on the federal government’s “no fly list” should be categorically denied their right buy guns under the Second Amendment. Both candidates have repeatedly said so for months. Trump’s stance on this issue should be deeply troubling to those who care about gun rights – and also to people concerned about constitutional rights generally, even if they don’t care much about this one.

Of the small number of people who did, Trump ended up with a slight advantage among undecideds to him. But more importantly,” continued Caddell, “and this is what does matter long-term in debates, is how you deal with the challenges and impressions you have.” Caddell said based on the polling, Trump “actually topped Hillary Clinton” on who was seen as plausible as president. “That was his great test,” said Caddell, “that he stand there...

    TRENTON — Gov. Chris Christie on Tuesday maintained he has told "the absolute truth" about his knowledge of the 2013 lane closures on the George Washington Bridge, as two of his former allies stand trial in Newark for their roles in the scandal.
