The liberal wing of the Democratic Party is gaining strength, and asserting its power. When Hillary Clinton formally claims the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination this summer in Philadelphia, she will inherit a party in the throes of a revolution — one in which her side seems likely to lose in the long term. The upheaval has been decades in the making, as the party has evolved from choosing relative centrist nominees such as Bill Clinton, Al Gore and John Kerry over more liberal contenders, to Barack Obama, who positioned himself to the left of Hillary Clinton in 2008. Now, even

Obama Gives Kitchen Sink Away to Vietnam

On the subject of Vietnam, many folks still have very definitive thoughts about that communist country. I for one have a personal reflection in that my older brother served there as a Marine Infantryman in Charlie Company, 1st Battalion, 26th Marine Regiment, and was wounded at Khe Sahn. My father-in-law also served in Vietnam as an Army Infantryman in the 23d American Division. So I was kinda paying close attention to President Obama’s visit to another communist country — too bad they don’t play baseball there (or dance the tango). And of course, Obama made a point of taking pictures

A New York City concert by Bernie Sanders supporter T.I. turned violent before the rapper even got on stage as gunshots killed one and injured three, according to reports. The incident started backstage where the rappers performing in acts before T.I. were gathered but spread onto the main stage causing panic at the concert venue, according to the New York Post. The carnage began in the green room of the Union Square venue at about 10 p.m. while the opening act — rappers Maino and Uncle Murda — were performing, according to law-enforcement sources. The gunplay then spilled into the

While The Donald hits the hustings talking, yea, bellowing, about the jobs America has lost, academia has actually added to its payrolls, but kept mum about who is picking up the tab. “The number of jobs in higher education expanded in Q1 2016 at the highest growth rate for the first quarter in three years,” according to Higher Ed Jobs.com. Two emerging professions servicing the academic community are Title IX advisors and diversity consultants.

Here is the bottom line about the U.S. Department of State’s Office of Inspector General’s Report regarding the use of email by the Secretary of State’s Office: It does not look good for Hillary. Not just in the political sense, but in the legal sense as well. The pundits seem concerned that Clinton refused to be interviewed by OIG investigators. Sure it’s troubling, but she’s involved in a FBI investigation, and her attorneys likely advised her not to talk. That’s not the issue. In addition, conservatives have said over and over again that the difference between Clinton’s email usage and

Just when you thought the 2016 election was starting to get a little predictable, a big wrench has been thrown into the works. A Donald Trump vs. Bernie Sanders debate in the coming days before the June 7th California primary is getting closer to becoming a reality. If this happens, it will likely be a huge boost for Sanders, a mild aid to Trump, and -- to borrow the key buzz word of this election so far – a YUGE pain in the neck for Hillary Clinton. For Sanders, this entire election has been a "nothing to lose" proposition. He

(Video) President Obama snapped at a reporter during a Thursday press conference in Japan after being asked about Hillary Clinton´s use of a private email system at the State Department, an act that the department´s inspector general said violated the rules. Obama had just offered to answer one additional question from reporters, but then bristled when the question was about Clinton´s emails. "You know I take it back – I´m not taking another question," he said. "We´re in Japan, don´t you have something to do with Asia that we want to talk about?

Release of Damaging E-Mail Report

The US State Department’s Inspector General released a report Wednesday that was highly damaging to presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. The report found that Clinton did not receive any approval to host a private server whatsoever and there were two known attempted hackings. But you may not have learned the true severity of the situation if you were watching NBC’s and ABC’s evening news programs. NBC News tried to play it down, first by reporting on it after leading the night with the riots at Donald Trump’s rallies in New Mexico and California. “An independent government report is breathing new life

Gen. Raymond Odierno said he believes the Islamic State’s creation was avoidable during an interview on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. Host Joe Scarborough asked Odierno, who commanded the Multi-National Forces in Iraq for about two years, if ISIS and the current state of Iraq were avoidable when the United States ended formal combat operations there. “Did it ever have to begin? Was ISIS avoidable?” Scarborough asked. “I think it is, and I’m not one for revisionist history,” Odierno said. “Actually, I was, on 1 September 2010, that’s when I gave up command in Iraq and that was the end of, we declared that was

TALMAGE — Chancy Smith was tailing a massive tornado Wednesday night as it roared through Dickinson County, threatening towns and reducing homes to rubble. “I was swearing it was going to destroy Talmage. I was right behind it,” said Smith, director of Dickinson County Emergency Management, after the tornado ravaged 20 to 25 homes. “It came into the county north of Solomon, in the 2700 block, and went straight east, taking no prisoners,” Smith said. “It was a quarter-mile wide when it crossed Fair Road.” The tornado crossed Interstate Highway 70, dipped south of Abilene and was taking aim at Chapman, Smith

Donald Trump on Thursday reached the number of delegates needed to clinch the Republican nomination for president, completing an unlikely rise that has upended the political landscape and sets the stage for a bitter fall campaign. Trump was put over the top in the Associated Press delegate count by a small number of the party´s unbound delegates who told the AP they would support him at the convention. Among them is Oklahoma GOP chairwoman Pam Pollard. (Snip) It takes 1,237 delegates to win the Republican nomination for president. Trump has reached 1,238.

This developing story has been updated. Sitting in his office last November, surrounded by football regalia and ornaments featuring Bible passages, Kenneth Starr, the president of Baylor University, defended his institution’s handling of sexual assault and domestic violence. “If you look at the way we approach the issue of interpersonal violence,” Starr said, “I believe a fair-minded judge would say, ‘You’re doing everything that you can.’” Baylor’s Board of Regents seemingly would disagree. After months of allegations that the world’s largest Baptist university has continuously mishandled -- and sought to suppress public discourse about -- sexual assaults committed by its football players, the

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) sued a private business for sex discrimination and harassment after a male employee — who announced he was switching genders to become a woman — was barred from using the women’s restroom and was referred to with male pronouns by his coworkers. Deluxe Financial Services, a Minnesota-based company that helps small businesses with marketing, denied that it violated any anti-discrimination laws but agreed to settle the case for $115,000 in order to avoid further costs of litigation, according to the settlement agreement.

JINHUA, China: There´s no masking the facts. One Chinese factory is expecting Donald Trump to beat his likely U.S. presidential rival Hilary Clinton in the popularity stakes. At the Jinhua Partytime Latex Art and Crafts Factory, a Halloween and party supply business that produces thousands of rubber and plastic masks of everyone from Osama Bin Laden to Spiderman, masks of Donald Trump and Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton faces are being churned out.

Paul Ryan is in another fight he doesn’t

House Speaker Paul D. Ryan finds himself in the middle of yet another Republican civil war as the battle over LGBT rights has come to Congress, threatening to divide an already fractured GOP. It is a fight the speaker does not want to have — especially in a competitive election year in which presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s candidacy is already tearing the party apart. Democrats won an opening salvo late Wednesday night, when the House approved on a vote of 223 to 195, a measure by Rep. Sean Maloney (D-N.Y.) to deny payment to federal contractors who discriminate against LGBT

Maybe they use the ´80s flick "War Games" as a training film, too. The U.S. Defense Department is still using — after several decades — 8-inch floppy disks in a computer system that coordinates the operational functions of the nation´s nuclear forces, a jaw-dropping new report reveals. The Defense Department´s 1970s-era IBM Series/1 Computer and long-outdated floppy disks handle functions related to intercontinental ballistic missiles, nuclear bombers and tanker support aircraft, according to the new Government Accountability Office report. The department´s outdated "Strategic Automated Command and Control System" is one of the 10 oldest information technology investments or systems detailed

Milo Yiannopoulos’ event at DePaul University had to be cut short Tuesday night after protesters stormed the stage, blew whistles, grabbed the microphone out of the interviewer’s hand, and threatened to punch Yiannopoulos in the face. Yiannopoulos attempted to continue the event, but protesters refused to leave the stage and the group of security guards (which DePaul forced both the organisers and Breitbart to pay for) refused to intervene. The male ringleader continued to pace along the stage with his whistle, refusing to let Yiannopoulos speak for extended amounts of time, while the female ringleader forcibly snatched the microphone from

Americans have become accustomed to student activism. Progressive Boomer parents and grandparents fondly remember their days in the quad, protesting the Vietnam War. My generation’s liberal activists built their anti-apartheid shantytowns and rallied for more faculty diversity. (Snip) This isn’t a philosophy, it’s a temper tantrum — but one that is connected with a raw will to power that renders the movement exceedingly dangerous. These “delicate” activists have proven that they can quickly convert their hurt feelings into civil unrest, and the attempt to impose law and order itself becomes yet another act of oppression.

We are constantly bombarded by MSM punditry who claim Donald Trump cannot win the Latino vote, or the Women vote, or the Black vote, or the (___Fill_In_The_Blank___) vote. However, few people stop to reset their references when absorbing the pundit speak. The reference position from the Liberal MSM pundit opining is from their own social neighborhood world-view. Example: The Latino voters they reference are not Latino voters, they are Latino Liberal voters. The reason they might not consider Trump is not because they are Latino, but rather because they are Liberal. The same framework is exhibited with all of their other “check-box” demographics.

Professional Republicans in the #NeverTrump movement continue to oppose the presumptive nominee selected by the GOP electorate and are now floating strategies to throw the election to Hillary Clinton. However, an examination of Clinton’s campaign promises reveals that Republicans who are willing to thwart Trump in favor of Clinton will be complicit in electing a President who would seek to bring about the complete and, possibly irreversible, dissolution of our nation’s borders. A review of Clinton’s stated positions on the issue suggests she is perhaps the most extreme candidate on immigration ever to run for the office of the U.S. Presidency. Her

For more than a year, Hillary Clinton has traveled the country talking to voters about her policy plans. She vowed to improve infrastructure in her first 100 days in office, promised to increase funding for Alzheimer’s research and proposed a $10 billion plan to combat drug and alcohol addiction. But as the Democratic primary contest comes to a close, any hopes Mrs. Clinton had of running a high-minded, policy-focused campaign have collided with a more visceral problem. Voters just don’t trust her. The Clinton campaign had hoped to use the coming weeks to do everything they could to shed that image and convince

The winters are cold in Amherst, Massachusetts, where the state university relies on a modern central heating plant that burns natural gas most of the time, switching to fuel oil when gas is not available. But no matter. Now that spring is here, the heat is coming from students who are horrified at the university´s financial investments in fossil fuels. Following protests (and student arrests) last month, the UMass System announced on Wednesday that it is the first major public university in the United States to fully divest from the fossil fuel industry.

She acknowledged “there are so many inconsistencies.” A damning report from the State Department Inspector General Wednesday condemned Clinton’s email practices as secretary of state, showing she violated clear rules about records-keeping. As MSNBC reported, the IG served to “directly contradict” repeated claims by Clinton that her email conduct was permitted
