    It’s not every day that a senior United Nations official reprimands the U.S. for its race relations, saying the country is “struggling to live up to its ideals” on equality, that “blunt discrimination” by police against black Americans has reached “crisis levels,” and that Congress is “dysfunctional” in how it responds to problems.

    Russia is pressing Turkey for ­access to a key airbase used by the US as it tries to extend its ­influence in the Middle East. The American-built Incirlik base, about 100km from the ­Syrian border, is used by NATO and has about 50 US tactical ­nuclear warheads stored on site. A senior Russian politician said allowing Russian jets and bombers to use it would be a “logical continuation” of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s efforts to rebuild Turkey’s relations with the Kremlin. “It just remains to come to an agreement with Erdogan that we get the NATO base Incirlik as our...

    Malaysia has decided it would rather not host the 67th FIFA Congress next year, as it means hosting an Israeli delegation as part of it. Malaysia was scheduled to host the Congress in its capital city of Kuala Lumpur on May 11-12, 2017. It refused to issue visas to Israeli delegates, and therefore had to relinquish the hosting rights. Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister Zahid Hamidi said his country could not provide visas to Israeli officials because of the lack of diplomatic ties with Israel and because "local sensitivities" might be riled up. "Some of the conditions of hosting the event...

    According to the government's official data, the number of unemployed black Americans is at its lowest since 2007 seemingly confirming President Obama's narrative that "everything is awesome." So, we wondered, if everything's awesome and everyone's got a job, why are black Americans rioting in Milwaukee? Here is the answer in one chart and one short sentence from a Milwaukee protester... Jobs are not fungible... Since President Obama was elected, black Americans may have seen their joblessness decline - but since President Obama was elected, income inequality for black Americans has soared...

    The health insurance exchanges that are the beating heart of Obamacare are on the edge of collapse, with premiums rising sharply for ever narrower provider networks, non-profit health co-ops shuttering their doors, and even the biggest insurance companies heading for the exits amid mounting losses.

Three states — Alaska, Alabama, and Wyoming — are already down to just a single insurance company, as are large parts of several other states, totaling at least 664 counties.

Iran retains “a substantial inventory of missiles capable of reaching targets throughout the region, including U.S. military bases and Israel,” the Pentagon announced in its annual report to Congress on Iran’s military might. Since the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action was agreed upon, Iran has “been testing to see what kind of activities it can get away with without jeopardizing sanctions relief and foreign investment,” Michael Eisenstadt,...

"You have tapes that they were hiding that show that millions of dollars were given to Clinton Foundation, and the State Department did favors for those people that they knew had given millions of dollars," Giuliani said. "That’s called illegal, it's called criminal." He said that's "classic pay-to-play," declaring the Clinton Foundation a "corrupt organization."...

Russian-Turkish relations soured last November when Turkey shot down a Russian bomber on the Syrian border. The visit comes as Turkey’s ties with the West have cooled over criticism of Mr. Erdogan’s purge of alleged coup-plotters. …

    As contenders scramble for the White House this fall, thoughts have naturally turned to President Obama’s legacy, and particularly his environmental legacy. As taxpayers consider the lessons of that legacy they would do well to consider past support and use of taxpayer dollars for favored industries and companies. One of those once favored companies is the now defunct renewable energy company Solyndra. During the late 2000s, the Obama administration deployed its political capital to cultivate an environmentally friendly image for the president. In a quest for renewable energy as part of the stimulus package and at the urging of the...

The first 112 years of America : 25 Presidents. The first 25 Presidents : 1262 executive orders. Theodore Roosevelt : 1081 executive orders. Keep in mind, Roosevelt didn't even serve two full terms, he was in for 7.5 years. And yes, many of these executive orders were explicitly to do an end-run around congressional authority, just like Obama does. Just like Obama. In which...

    President Obama wrote an open letter to the nation's police officers Monday night to say "we have your backs," after two separate shootings in which eight police officers were killed in Dallas and Baton Rouge. His letter was addressed to the "brave members of our law enforcement community" and was posted on the Fraternal Order of Police's Facebook page. Obama offered his unwavering support to police as they "do their difficult, dangerous jobs." "I want you to know that the American people see it, too," the president wrote. "We recognize it, we respect it, we appreciate it, and we depend...

    by Tyler Durden Jul 18, 2016 Howard Kunstler I was in the streets of Chicago in 1968 during the Democratic Convention. It was only a few months after Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King were shot to death. The “establishment,” as we called it back then, was all set to nominate Vice-president Hubert Humphrey who had started out in Washington as a Midwestern progressive firebrand but was now was broadly perceived by America’s hippie youth as a stooge and a sell-out to the evil forces running the Vietnam War. I wasn’t exactly a protester, more like a proto-journalist, there to...

    By continuing to cast aspersions on police in general even as they're being gunned down, Obama fans the flames of this madness and gets blood on his own hands I do not make this statement lightly. I thought about it a lot. I used to roll my eyes at liberals who blamed Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush for everything under the sun - including things that clearly had nothing to do with them. I don’t want to behave in the same silly way now just because we have a liberal president and my political bias makes me want to...

  • Thank Al Sharpton/Jesse Jackson for Baton Rouge Police killings today

    Clearly the words of Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson probably lead to the shooting of 7 police officers today in Baton Rouge. They both spoke at the funeral of Alton Sterling. Apparently, they have been a calming influence on our nation. Of course, it is unclear what roles #BlackLivesMatter and the New Black Panther Party had. The shooter today in Baton Rouge was dressed in all black as is the custom of the New Black Panthers.
