It is important for the Supreme Court not only to base its decisions on the Constitution but to issue opinions that address the questions of everyday Americans, a relaxed Clarence Thomas said Wednesday night as an honored guest speaker at The Heritage Foundation. In a deep, resonant voice, Thomas talked early in the hourlong program about the wisdom of writing opinions in plain language, of making the Constitution “accessible.” “I think we hide it from them when we write in language that is inaccessible,” Thomas said. “We owe it to people to present to them their Constitution in a way
More Americans are afraid of clowns than of climate change, terrorism, and dying. Two polls which surveyed Americans also found that the greatest fear among Americans is corrupt government. The polls were conducted by Chapman University and Vox / Morning Consult. The Chapman survey found that 42 per cent of respondents said that they were scared of clowns, compared to just 32 per cent who said they were frightened by climate change. The poll ranked the fears which included terror attacks (41 per cent), infringement of gun rights (38 per cent), death of a loved one (38 per cent), economic
(Video) Tensions escalated quickly Wednesday when the adult daughter of an Army veteran expressed her outrage over anti-Donald Trump protesters who defaced an American flag outside the grand opening of the Republican presidential nominee´s new D.C. hotel. "My father fought for this country in the Army, this is a disgrace," the unidentified Florida woman shouted at protesters holding an American flag written over with quotes from Trump´s infamous hot mic video talking about women. A younger anti-Trump protester told her she did not understand history and that America was not "God-given" but "taken," and the sacrifices of American soldiers were
Megyn Kelly is shooting to earn over $20 million every year from Fox News, according to a report on her contract negotiations from the Wall Street Journal (both FNC and WSJ are owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp). From the Wall Street Journal: Fox News star Megyn Kelly has changed agents and publicity teams since last year. Now the question is if she will change TV networks. Host of “The Kelly File,” one of the cable-news channel’s most popular shows, Ms. Kelly is in active talks over her contract, which expires next July. Her profile has been rising during the
If you had any idea the scope of the people who don’t want this information out it would blow your mind. We have shared this information before, however if you have family in a battleground state where the John Allen commercial is being run on TV share this information. When you read this, sip slowly, dust off the way-back machine, and think about those who have surfaced visibly to support Hillary Clinton. Including “retired” U.S. General John Allen (retired in 2012), who was previously brought out of retirement to lead President Obama’s fight against ISIS in 2014. In order to understand the
Donald Trump claims he could teach the former dean of the Army War College ´a couple of things´ after the military expert said the billionaire ´doesn´t know a damn thing about military strategy.´ The Republican candidate tweeted on Sunday that the ongoing operation against ISIS in the terrorist stronghold of Mosul in northern Iraq was a ´total disaster.´ ´We gave them months of notice. U.S. is looking so dumb. VOTE TRUMP and WIN AGAIN!´ he tweeted. Jeff McCausland, the former dean of the Army War College, had criticized Trump after the tweet claiming it showed that the real estate mogul´s
A close aide to Bill Clinton said he arranged for $50 million in payments for the former president, part of a complicated mingling of lucrative business deals and charity work of the Clinton Foundation mapped out in a memo released by WikiLeaks on Wednesday. The report was written by Doug Band, who has transitioned from his job as a Clinton aide to a partner in Teneo Consulting, a firm whose client roster now includes some of the biggest companies in the world. Along the way, Band wrote, he also pushed his clients and contacts to donate millions of dollars to the
NEW YORK — Hillary Clinton appears on the cusp of a potentially commanding victory over Donald Trump, fueled by solid Democratic turnout in early voting, massive operational advantages and increasing enthusiasm among her supporters. A new Associated Press-GfK poll released Wednesday finds the Democratic nominee has grabbed significant advantages over her Republican rival with just 12 days left before Election Day. Among them: consolidating the support of her party and even winning some Republicans. "I´m going to pick Hillary at the top and pick Republican straight down the line," said poll respondent William Goldstein, a 71-year-old from Long Island, New

Disgraced Democratic operative Robert Creamer participated in daily calls with the Hillary Clinton campaign, and worked directly with President Barack Obama to organize “issue campaigns.” Creamer makes the admissions in the latest undercover video release from James O’Keefe and Project Veritas, which captured Creamer describing his activities. O’Keefe also reports that Creamer accepted a foreign donation for a Democratic super PAC. (Video) In the video, Creamer explains to a Project Veritas journalist that he works for the Clinton campaign and is in charge of “overseeing” activities at the Trump rallies: “I mean frankly I spend most of my time overseeing
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton says she loves having rich people support her. “You know I love having the support of real billionaires,” Clinton said, during a speech in Florida. “Um…” she paused, as the crowd applauded hesitantly. Clinton praised the billionaires that were supporting her for president, claiming Donald Trump “gives a bad name to billionaires.” She pointed out that Warren Buffett has repeatedly urged the government to raise his taxes and that Mark Cuban shared his profits with all of his employees. Clinton cited billionaire Michael Bloomberg who’s called Trump a “con artist.” “We’re going to raise taxes
It’s not every day an American presidential candidate flatly says his opponent will cause World War Three. But Donald Trump did just that yesterday, accusing Hillary Clinton of recklessly seeking confrontation with Russia over Syria—where, he claims, the Democratic nominee is insufficiently worried about the Islamic State. “What we should do is focus on ISIS. We should not be focusing on Syria,” Trump stated in Florida at his Trump National Doral golf resort. “You’re going to end up in World War Three over Syria if we listen to Hillary Clinton.” He then hinted at possible nuclear Armageddon caused by Hillary’s recklessness. That’s
A Russian missile design company has unveiled the first image of a new weapon in Russia´s arsenal: the Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile, nicknamed "Satan 2." The RS-28 Sarmat rocket "is capable of wiping out parts of the earth the size of Texas or France," Russian state news outlet Sputnik reported in May. The image was published by the Makeyev Rocket Design Bureau on its website. Russian Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borsiov said the Sarmat warhead was capable of destroying targets flying across both North and South Poles, Russian state news agency TASS reported Tuesday.
A cheerful Megyn Kelly was photographed heading out of her apartment and into a waiting car on her way in to work on Wednesday afternoon. The popular host of The Kelly File is set to tape her first show since Newt Gingrich attacked her on Tuesday night´s program, shouting at one point that Kelly was ´fascinated with sex.´ Also seen leaving the apartment on Wednesday was Kelly´s husband, novelist Douglas Brunt. Kelly was later seen arriving at Fox News headquarters, where she was quickly escorted inside by security. Hours earlier, Donald Trump very publicly showed his support for Gingrich while
Bill Weld wants you to know that he really, really, really doesn´t like Donald Trump. The Libertarian Party vice presidential nominee, who started off his ticket´s media campaign by expressing an open preference for his "old friend" Hillary Clinton over the Republican nominee, and then spent the intervening months trying to walk back that sentiment and batting down persistent rumors that he was going to drop out or "exclusively" criticize Trump, took the unusual step yesterday of releasing a prepared statement "regarding the final weeks of this election." "I would not have stepped out of the swirl of the campaign to
Moms in the United States illegally gave birth to 275,000 babies in 2014, enough birthright U.S. citizens to fill a city the size of Orlando, Florida, according to an analysis of data from the National Center for Health Statistics. The data showed that newborns to illegals accounted for 7 percent of all births in 2014, according to the analysis from the Pew Research Center. "In 2014, about 275,000 babies were born to unauthorized-immigrant parents in the U.S., accounting for about 7 percent of all U.S. births, and 32 percent of all U.S. births to foreign-born mothers," said Pew´s newly released report.
I was watching Fox News live last night when Megyn Kelly conducted her already infamous interview with Newt Gingrich about the Trump campaign. It began as a good, combative exchange between two feisty, intelligent, politically savvy people. Then it took a bizarre twist when Kelly began a sentence with the words ‘If Trump is a sexual predator….’ Gingrich reacted like he’d been shot in the backside with an AR-15. ‘HE’S NOT A SEXUAL PREDATOR!’ he screamed. ‘You could not defend that statement. I’m sick and tired of people like you using language that’s inflammatory…that’s not true.’ Kelly, as I expected
The woman behind National Geographic photographer Steve McCurry’s famous ‘Afghan Girl’ portrait has been arrested in Peshawar, Pakistan for possessing falsified documents. Pakistan’s Federal Investigation Agency arrested Sharbat Gula at her home on Wednesday for having a forged Computerised National Identity Card. Gula’s ID cards for both Pakistan and Afghanistan were taken from her. She faces up to 14 years in prison if convicted. The arrests coincides with a Pakistani crackdown on undocumented immigrants.
LAKEPORT, Calif. – The Clearlake man who authorities say started the Clayton fire and 15 other blazes around Lake County was in court on Tuesday for the setting of his preliminary hearing, which will take place next year. Damin Anthony Pashilk, 40, made the brief appearance in Lake County Superior Court. Chief Deputy District Attorney Richard Hinchcliff, who is handling the case, said Pashilk´s preliminary hearing has been set for April 26. Hinchcliff said the hearing was scheduled that far out for reasons including the need for the District Attorney´s Office to continue working on the followup investigation that´s part
With their candidate lagging in most of the major polls, Donald Trump´s supporters are hoping the election holds a surprise akin to June´s Brexit vote. Goldman Sachs, though, believes the chances of a Nov. 8 surprise in the U.S. are remote. The two races differ in several key ways, Goldman economist Alec Phillips said, diminishing the possibility of a repeat where polling incorrectly suggested that Britons would vote to stay in the European Union. "We think the situation is different for two reasons. First, and most importantly, while both situations represented an opportunity for voters to endorse a change in the status quo,
Bill Clinton is a sex-addicted ´monster´ who mocked Hillary Clinton by calling her ´The Warden´ in front of friends and privately boasted about his high notch count, according to his long-time mistress and childhood friend Dolly Kyle. Kyle, now 68, says she had a decades-long affair with the former president before and during his marriage and had a front-row seat to Bill´s salacious double-life in the 1970s and ´80s. (Snip) ´Now, he did not say Hillary is a lesbian,´ she added. ´Billy didn´t have to spell out what that meant… Everybody in Little Rock knew the same rumors
Two more powerful earthquakes - measuring 5.9 and 6.1 - have hit northern Italy, hours after a tremor caused panic in the area, which is prone to seismic activity. Earlier a quake measuring 5.4 shook buildings as far away as the capital, Rome, 80 miles away. Some buildings have collapsed, a motorway has been closed and many people in the countryside were plunged into darkness as the power was knocked out but there have been no reports of casualties. But one Twitter user in Italy, Sofia, wrote: ´I´m so scared of these earthquakes don´t think i´ll sleep tonight #Terremoto.´ The
Michael Moore thinks Donald Trump will win the 2016 election. In Trumpland, Moore’s latest documentary, the Oscar-winner explains that Trump’s supporters aren’t really the racists and bigots Hillary Clinton’s campaign portrays them as. Instead, his supporters — like autoworkers in Ohio who have seen their jobs sent to Mexico — are made up of Americans whose lives have been destroyed by the ruling elites in America. (VIDEO) “Whether Trump means [what he says] or not is kind of irrelevant because he’s saying the things to people who are hurting,” he explained. “It’s why every beaten down, worthless, forgotten working stiff who used
A mother overdosed at the wheel of her car while her baby son sat in the backseat. Erika Hurt was pictured by police as they found her on Saturday shortly after 2pm in Hope, Indiana, still clutching a syringe in her floppy left hand. The 25-year-old´s 10-month-old son was crying in the backseat. They were parked outside a Dollar General Store. Hurt was revived and taken to hospital. She was later charged with child neglect and possession of drug paraphernalia. Town Marshal Matthew Tallent shared the image to highlight America´s drug epidemic which he said was ´leaking into small town USA´.
(Via Project Veritas) In the effort to prove the credibility of the undercover donor featured in the videos and to keep the investigation going, Project Veritas Action made the decision to donate twenty thousand dollars to Robert Creamer’s effort. Project Veritas Action had determined that the benefit of this investigation outweighed the cost. And it did. (Video) In an unexpected twist, AUFC president Brad Woodhouse, the recipient of the $20,000, heard that Project Veritas Action was releasing undercover videos exposing AUFC’s activities. He told a journalist that AUFC was going to return the twenty thousand dollars. Woodhouse said it was because
Elizabeth — Elizabeth could soon become the latest New Jersey municipality to offer local identification cards to unauthorized immigrants, homeless people and others. An ordinance to make photo ID cards available to people who may not have any other form of identification was approved on first reading Tuesday and a final vote is expected next month. "The ID campaign came out of their experience of facing real barriers to accessing everyday services, from picking your kid up from school and being required to present ID, to filling a prescription, to making a return at a store," said Sara Cullinane, state
