    The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe aims to send 500 international observers to observe November's U.S. presidential election, a tenfold increase from the number the group deployed in 2012. A coalition of more than 200 U.S. civil rights groups urged the OSCE in a letter released on Tuesday to provide even more than the 500 observers the OSCE requested based on an assessment it conducted in May. The actual observers will be dispatched by the international security and rights organization's 57 participating states. The letter from the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights said the OSCE's role...
  • Hillary drafts illegal 'Dreamers' to get immigrants to vote

    Hillary Clinton's campaign on Sunday announced a program to recruit undocumented "Dreamers" into a voter registration army even though they are not allowed to vote. Celebrating the four-year anniversary of President Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, Clinton launched "Mi Sueno, Tu Voto" (My Dream, Your Vote), to rally and "secure commitments" from immigrants who can vote. The DACA program created so-called "Dreamers," the children of illegal immigrants who the president has offered renewable two-year work visas and deportation deferral. The goal for many in the program is amnesty. "We may not have the right to vote, but 'Mi...

Iran - the primary financial supporter of global terrorism - poses an existential danger to Western values, culture and life. Israel opposes that mortal threat to Jews and the West.

Only 12 percent of those surveyed by polling institute TNS Sofres said they thought Hollande was doing a good job. It is the worst score of any French president since such surveys were first conducted more than three decades ago.

There’s a good chance that you know someone, maybe even yourself, who is secretly voting for Trump. The statements that Trump makes — the name-calling, the personal attacks — have an effect on how voters both for and against Trump perceive the candidate. Some Trump voters are fine with it and think it’s all part of the show. Others find it appalling but perhaps necessary. Washington is pretty messed up. Maybe it deserves Trump.

Yet along the Texas-Mexico border, Trump enjoys a well of support among Hispanic Americans that some might find surprising. Texas has the second largest Latino population in the nation, including nearly five million eligible Hispanic voters. In the Texas Republican primary March 1, Trump came in a distant second, winning just six of the state's 254...

    Five voting districts are being investigated in Austria over postal vote irregularities in the close-run presidential election, the interior minister has announced. Allegations of fraud arose from the far-right Freedom party (FPÖ) of defeated candidate Norbert Hofer, after the Green candidate Alexander Van der Bellen just scrapped ahead with 31,000 votes when the postal ballot was counted. The Villach branch of FPÖ lodged a complaint with the country’s corruption prosecutor over the Carinthia council counting votes on Sunday and not Monday like in the rest of the country. Speaking on Austrian TV, Freedom Party leader Heinz Christan Strache said, “The...

    As the days go by, the results of the Austrian presidential election get more suspicious. According to the official results, the far-left candidate Alexander Van der Bellen defeated Norbert Hofer from the Freedom Party of Austria by just 31,000 votes, 50.35% to 49.65%. The lights were already blinking red on the day the results were being released. Writing for Breitbart soon thereafter, James Delingpole didn't mince words and called the election a sham: We were continually assured by the left-liberal media how awful it would be if the (supposed) "far-right" candidate Norbert Hofer won. But actually the victory of Green...

    So I just saw little article about leftist 60s guy Neil Young who said Donald Trump couldn't use one of his songs...same thing with Aerosmith.... So, it just kind of struck me: Artist "Y" created something and THEN Trump purchases the CD/Music File/Record, whatever the material is upon which the recording is made...and then uses it for his OWN pleasure. Artist Y hates Trump and says that even though the record can be bought and purchased, Trump cannot play it publicly. And that wish is respected. Baker "J" creates cakes. Or photographer "G" creates stunning pictures. Can THEY not restrict...

    A federal lawsuit alleging widespread confusion over California's presidential primary rules asks that voter registration be extended past Monday's deadline until the day of the state's primary election on June 7. "Mistakes are being made," said William Simpich, an Oakland civil rights attorney who filed the lawsuit. At issue is whether voters understand the rules for the presidential primary, which differ from those governing other elections in California. Unlike statewide primaries -- where voters now choose any candidate, no matter the political party -- the presidential contests are controlled by the parties themselves. Democrats have opened up their primary to...
