Meanwhile, an estimated 32.2 million people watched Donald Trump give his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland last Thursday. (An additional 2.65 million viewers watched Trump’s speech on PBS, while Clinton’s PBS numbers are still unknown.)

Activist, author and investigative journalist James O’Keefe from Project Veritas went undercover as a Hillary supporter this week at the DNC Convention in Philadelphia. What transpired was shocking. James was dressed as a Hillary Clinton supporter and walked through the Bernie supporters outside the Wells Fargo Convention Center. The Bernie supporters REALLY do not like Hillary. (Photo) (Snip) At one point a group of black protesters went off on James, the Hillary supporter, and Democrat party. “What the hell does the glass ceiling mean?

ANKARA, Turkey — Turkey´s president slammed the United States on Friday, claiming it was not standing firmly against a failed military coup and accused it of harboring the plot´s alleged mastermind, as a government crackdown in the coup´s aftermath strained Turkey´s ties with key allies. Turkey has demanded the United States extradite Fethullah Gulen, a cleric living in self-imposed exile in Pennsylvania whom it accuses of being behind the violent July 15 coup attempt that left 290 people dead. It is accusing Western nations of not extending sufficient support to its efforts to counter further threats from followers of the



Court strikes down North

A federal appeals court has struck down North Carolina’s voter identification law, holding that it was “passed with racially discriminatory intent.” The ruling also invalidated limits the same state law placed in 2013 on early voting, same-day registration, out-of-precinct voting, and preregistration. The three judges assigned to the case — all Democratic appointees — were unanimous that the Republican-controlled North Carolina legislature violated the U.S. Constitution

Orlando, Fla. — Florida’s governor says the state has concluded that four mysterious Zika infections likely came from mosquitoes in the Miami area. Gov. Rick Scott said Friday that no mosquitoes in the state have tested positive for Zika. But he says one woman and three men in Miami-Dade and Broward counties likely contracted the virus through mosquito bites. More than 1,650 Zika infections have been reported in the U.S., but the four patients in Florida would be the first not linked to travel outside the U.S. mainland. Scott says health officials believe the infections occurred in a small area just north of

On the night Hillary Clinton accepted her party’s nomination for president, Clinton and other Democrats played loose with some facts: Clinton misrepresented Donald Trump’s “I alone can fix it” line, suggesting he said he could fix everything by himself. Trump was referring to a “rigged” system, and went on to talk about working with others. Clinton said that “we’re going to pay for every single one” of the initiatives she has proposed. We can’t predict the future, but a nonpartisan analysis found her proposals would add to the national debt. Clinton said “90 percent” of income gains “have gone to

“Why do I have to get involved with Putin? I have nothing to do with Putin. I’ve never spoken to him. I don’t know anything about him other than he will respect me. He doesn’t respect our president. And if it is Russia—which it’s probably not, nobody knows who it is—but if it is Russia, it’s really bad for a different reason, because it shows how little respect they have for our country, when they would hack into a major party and get everything. But it would be interesting to see—I will tell you this—Russia, if you’re listening, I hope

PHILADELPHIA – If you watched the final night of the Democratic Convention on television at home or at a watch party, it might have seemed like everything went pretty well for Hillary Clinton and the Democrats. She gave a decent speech, hit all the points she need to hit, there were some strong speeches earlier in the night, and despite some disruptions from protesters earlier in the week the convention ended up being more or less the media spectacle party officials hoped it would be. But not everything was quite as it seemed. Inside the convention hall, hundreds of Bernie

The Democratic National Convention, which wrapped with party nominee Hillary Clinton’s speech Thursday night, was a highly choreographed affair. But a final display after Clinton’s speech, relying on the thousands-strong audience in the Wells Fargo Center, went poorly despite detailed directions: a card stunt that on national television seemed to befuddle both those in Philadelphia and viewers at home. The plan for the card stunt unfolded Thursday night before Clinton took the stage, as an announcer directed listeners through an instructional video on the arena’s screens to find red, white or blue cards left on their seats. “Each card is

Obama´s Economic Growth
Gap Now Tops $2.2 Trillion
Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff    Original Article

Economists were surprised Friday when the Commerce Department reported that growth in the second quarter of this year was a mere 1.2%. But the real surprise is that anyone is surprised when the economy underperforms, since that´s what it has been doing for the past seven years. There has not been a single year in the past seven when the economy did better than President Obama promised, or that most economists expected. Indeed, the real problem isn´t the tepid growth in the second quarter, after an equally tepid first quarter. The real problem is that under President Obama´s economic stewardship, the economy

PHILADELPHIA—Have you ever been to summer camp? My whole class went for a week when I was in seventh grade. I remember a feeling we all had towards the end, on the second-to-last day, of bleak and overwhelming melancholy. Something had happened. We didn’t know why, but what had begun with yearning and exhilaration on the first night in the cabins—the joyous conversation about girls and activities to come, unpacking all the underwear and towels nicely folded by Mom, ghost stories—ended with ennui and even dread. That week seemed to encompass years, even decades, of human experience. Covering the Republican

Last week, Ed Morrissey reminds us solemnly over at The Fiscal Times, the last maker of VCRs threw in the towel and stopped making the thing. "After nearly 60 years," writes Morrissey (whose main gig is as a honcho at Hot Air), "and 40-plus years as a mass-produced consumer product, the last manufacturer could not ignore its obsolescence any longer, created by innovation and open-market principles." Before we move into the meat of Morrissey´s column, let´s reflect briefly on just how great an invention the VCR was. If you´re old enough (say 40-plus), it radically transformed your cultural life by

Acting more like a doorman than a journalist during PBS coverage of the Democratic National Convention Thursday night, CBS This Morning co-host Charlie Rose invited former Attorney General Eric Holder to blast Donald Trump: “You also said that Donald Trump, you questioned his gray matter. You mean he’s not smart enough to be president?” Holder replied: “Yeah, I wonder. You know, I sometimes think that he hides behind a certain bravado to hide a lack of substance that he has....he seems to me to be a very shallow man.” Rather challenge the nasty personal attack or lecture Holder to tone

PHILADELPHIA — Hillary Clinton officially accepted the Democratic nomination for president amid a series of boos and catcalls Thursday night at the Democratic National Convention. As soon as the roars of applause died down and Clinton began her speech, loud boos erupted in several parts of the arena, disrupting an otherwise weighty moment. Scattered shouting continued through the first few minutes of her speech, although the audience tried to drown them out by chanting “Hillary! Hillary!” The loud chanting drowned out some of the calls and some protesters were reportedly ejected from the arena, but the spontaneous chanting and continuing

An ancient 15-pound lobster named Larry was saved from becoming dinner at a Florida seafood restaurant last week but has died in transit to the Maine State Aquarium, the Miami Herald reported. When Joe Melluso, the owner of Tin Fish restaurant in Sunrise, Fla., first got the call about a massive lobster from his seafood supplier, he thought Larry could be 115 years old. After a picture of the lobster was broadcast on a local TV station, business owners and animal activists rallied to save him. They named him Larry and said he should live out his golden years in

She begins with a rally in Philadelphia. It was originally planned to be an an outdoor event with sweeping views of the city´s historic Independence Mall. But rain forced the event indoors to a Temple University hall. As she heads west, Clinton will hold events in Hatfield and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, making her way to battleground Ohio.

The FBI is investigating another hack at Democratic Party headquarters after it emerged that donors may have had their personal details stolen from a campaign fundraising database. Sources believe the attack on the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) may have been used to gather information about party backers, rather than to steal their money. Cyber attackers set up a fake website for donations from what appears to have been a Russian IP address and then harvested donors´ details, sources said. The hack is another embarrassment for the party after internal emails and voicemails obtained by WikiLeaks revealed how senior officials and powerful donors

Today is the final day for the Democrat Coronation of Hillary Clinton. Candidate Donald Trump released the following campaign message:At Hillary Clinton’s convention this week, Democrats have been speaking about a world that doesn’t exist. A world where America has full employment, where there’s no such thing as radical Islamic terrorism, where the border is totally secured, and where thousands of innocent Americans have not suffered from rising crime in cities like Baltimore and Chicago. In the Democrats’ fantasy world, there is no problem with Hillary Clinton maintaining an illegal, exposed server full of classified information that could have been hacked

Bill Clinton apparently fell asleep during Hillary Clinton’s speech Thursday at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. Sitting in between Tim Kaine and Chelsea Clinton, Bill grabbed some quick shut eye while Hillary Clinton talked about ISIS. The former secretary of state was saying, “We will disrupt their efforts online to reach and radicalize young people in our country. It won’t be easy or quick, but make no mistake – we will prevail.” Apparently, Bill Clinton did not prevail over the desire to sleep.

Some Philadelphia police officers say they were barred from patrolling in uniform on the floor of the convention while it was in session — spurring claims that Democrats are anti-law enforcement. Rudy Giuliani on Thursday first raised the issue of uniformed cops not being allowed to mingle with delegates on the floor. “Philadelphia police officers are not in the convention hall. They’re not allowed in uniform,” said Giuliani, a Donald Trump adviser who was monitoring the Democratic convention. “I would say it’s because the Democratic Party delegates are anti-police, anti-law enforcement. They hate the police. Republicans are not embarrassed by police officers,” Giuliani

PHILADELPHIA America’s about to endure the closest, nastiest, most unpredictable presidential election in more than three decades. Not since Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan ran against each other in 1980 has the choice been so stark, the warnings from each candidate about the other so dire, the likely outcome so murky. As this year’s political conventions end, there’s no clear favorite. But watch the polls next week. The leader in the first polls conducted entirely after the convention ends has won the White House every time since 1948. “That’s when the dust settles. That is the person who ends up taking the oath of
