    Washington - Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump today hit out at his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton and her running mate Tim Kaine, saying they "do not look presidential" as he claimed that enemies like ISIS are "drooling" over their nomination. "Just saw crooked Hillary and Tim Kaine together. ISIS and our other enemies are drooling. They don't look presidential to me!" Trump said on twitter as he posted a series of tweets wherein he described Kaine as a job killer. "Tim Kaine has been praising the Trans Pacific Partnership and has been pushing hard to get it approved. Job killer!"...

    Brazil's federal police today arrested 10 people and smashed a network allied to ISIS that was preparing 'acts of terrorism' at next month's Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. President Michel Temer has called an emergency cabinet meeting and Justice Minister Alexandre de Moraes said the operation spanned nine states across Brazil, although the arrests were made in the southern states of Sao Paulo and Parana. A court in Parana said there were indications the group was planning to use weapons to launch attacks similar to the Paris atrocities in November last year. Earlier this month Mr Moraes said a jihadist...

Some of you are going to vote for Hillary because she is the presumptive Democrat nominee. You have voted Democrat all your life and you are not going to change now, even if you do not think she can lead this country.

    WASHINGTON – Congress voted Friday to put limits on the expense accounts ex-presidents get from American taxpayers. The bill, which cleared the House by voice vote, is heading to President Barack Obama's desk. The legislation sets an annual allowance of $200,000 a year for travel, staff and office costs that have become a standard part of life after the Oval Office. For former presidents who make money through books, speaking fees and other ventures, the allowance is reduced for every dollar in outside income in excess of $400,000. Both Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, like other former presidents before...

Murphy has been perhaps the most passionate gun safety advocate since the Sandy Hook shooting occurred in his home state in 2012. Over the past few hours, Sen. Murphy has been joined by a number of his colleagues including Pat Toomey. Pennsylvania’s junior Senator has been one of the few Republican members to advocate in favor of gun safety measures. “I’m of the view that it’s time to get something done here,” Toomey began. “We’ve done a lot of talking.” Sen....

The article bears the headline, "How to Get Trump Elected When He’s Wrecking Everything You Built." “Five, 10 years from now — different party. You’re going to have a...

    US House blocks aid to duplicitous Pakistan The US House of Representatives' decision to incorporate stringent requirements for the release of American aid to Pakistan, even in the face of opposition from the White House, is indicative of a gradual change of heart in Washington, DC, towards what was once its frontline ally in the war on terror. It comes days after the US Congress objected to the sale of American F-16s, which have little value in fighting insurgents but help Pakistan build parity with India. This is not to suggest that the US is anywhere close to changing its...

    A band of exasperated Republicans — including 2012 presidential nominee Mitt Romney, a handful of veteran consultants and members of the conservative intelligentsia — is actively plotting to draft an independent presidential candidate who could keep Donald Trump from the White House. Those involved concede that an independent campaign at this late stage is probably futile, and they think they have only a couple of weeks to launch a credible bid. But these Republicans — including commentators William Kristol and Erick Erickson and strategists Mike Murphy, Stuart Stevens and Rick Wilson — are so repulsed by the prospect of Trump...

    Recently, on the MSNBC "Morning Joe" show, presumptive Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump reiterated his desire to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the United States. Why this fear of Islam and Muslims? Liberal talk show host Bill Maher recently said that the more a person knows about Islam, the more he fears Islam. The essence of Islam is to subjugate, oppress, forcibly convert or kill Kafirs (non-Muslims). This follows from the Islamic scriptures, the Koran, The Hadith (sayings and deeds of Mohammed), and the Sira (the biography of Mohammed). The Koran calls on Muslims to emulate Mohammed: the short paperback...

    Former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers spoke at the International Monetary Fund on Wednesday, warning against austerity measures amid a tepid economy. Yahoo Finance sat down with him to get little more color on the economy and to find out what keeps him up most at night. “I think the prospect of Donald Trump being President would be the gravest threat to our prosperity, our security, and our freedom in my adult lifetime,” Summers said. “That's the thing I would worry most about.”

    If I was asked to introduce Donald Trump, after I had had a child lead us in the Pledge of Allegiance and asked all the veterans to stand for a round of applause, this is what I would say: Ladies and gentlemen, I am proud of you. I am proud of you for working jobs and paying taxes and raising families. I am proud of your love of this country, and proud of the fact that you are willing to stand up and be heard. I'm proud of you for supporting Donald J. Trump as he takes a baseball bat...

    You're not qualified. NO, YOU!! It’s rare that Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders can unite Republicans in universal agreement. Usually, we point out the flaws in their beliefs, ridicule their terrible policies, and do our best to expose their incoherence. Not today. Today, we applaud their clarity. First, Hillary accused Bernie of campaigning on issues he doesn’t understand and making promises he can’t keep. She was pressed on whether Bernie is qualified. She didn’t specifically say that she thought Sanders was unqualified, but she also refused to say that he was. Instead, she argued that the core issue of his...

    Steve Miller spoke this morning at the Donald Trump town hall in Racine, Wisconsin. Miller destroyed Ted Cruz on the senator’s immigration and trade record. Miller pointed out that Ted Cruz supported the Trans-Pacific Trade Deal that will cost the US millions of jobs. Cruz also pushed to expand Muslim immigration into America. This is despite the fact that Obama has issued 68o,000 green cards to immigrants from Muslim countries in the last five years. The Cruz amendment would have doubled the number of Muslim immigrants to America to up to 1.35 million. Steve Miller added, “Why is it that...

    Ted Cruz, "Today radical Islamic terrorists targeted the men and women of Brussels as they went to work on a spring morning. In a series of co-ordinated attacks they murdered and maimed dozens of innocent commuters at subway stations and travelers at the airport. For the terrorists, the identities of the victims were irrelevant. They – we — are all part of an intolerable culture that they have vowed to destroy. For years, the west has tried to deny this enemy exists out of a combination of political correctness and fear. We can no longer afford either. Our European allies...
