The former Miss Universe at the center of a bitter exchange in Monday´s presidential debate was accused of aiding a would-be murderer and threatening to kill a judge, it has emerged. Alicia Machado was named by Hillary Clinton as having been shamed for her weight in 1996 by Donald Trump, when she was Miss Universe and he bought the beauty contest, by being called ´Miss Piggy´ when she gained weight. The then Miss Venezuela was photographed with Trump at a gym as he spoke about how she ´loves to eat´, and she also claimed he mocked her Latino accent, calling

California Democrats introduced legislation earlier this year that would have expanded the California Coastal National Monument some 6,261 acres covering five coastal sites. The bill did not advance, and in February those lawmakers urged President Barack Obama to use his authority under the Antiquities Act to make the land off limits for everything except tourism. Last week, Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), and Reps. Lois Capps (D-Calif.), Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.) and Jared Huffman (D-Calif.) courted the director of the Bureau of Land Management, hoping to gain momentum on their protected land expansion. “The iconic scenery of the California coast is beloved by millions

Three Democratic Senators have written a letter to Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter to “request that the Department of Defense (DOD) bolster contraception education and access” to service members. Sens. Patty Murray (D-Wash.), Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.), and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) sent a letter saying that military women "may not have access to the most effective or preferred methods of contaception" and that the DOD should do more to stop unwanted pregnancies. “We write today to request that the Department of Defense bolster contraception education and access for servicemembers and their families,” the letter dated Sept. 2



Heather Mac Donald Fact-Checks
Hillary Clinton on Systemic
Bias and Stop-and-Frisk
National Review Online, by Andrew C. McCarthy    Original Article

At City Journal, Heather Mac Donald dismantles Hillary Clinton’s debate claims that the criminal justice system is infected with racism and that stop-and-frisk (which Trump has called for reviving) is unconstitutional and ineffective. As with anything Heather writes, the whole thing is worth your time. But I’ll home in on two points so I can make a couple of points of my own. First, she explains the elephant in the room that no one (including Donald Trump last night) wants to confront: Mrs. Clinton’s “systemic bias” libel ignores that the statistical overrepresentation of blacks in the prison population (compared to

Sens. David Vitter and Chuck Grassley pressed the Justice Department Tuesday on why the State Department, under the leadership of Hillary Clinton, refused to designate Boko Haram as a terrorist organization. "For two years, Boko Haram grew as Secretary Clinton and her Department of State refused official requests to designate Boko Haram" as a terror group, the Republican lawmakers wrote in a letter to the Attorney General Loretta Lynch on Tuesday. (Snip) Vitter has in the past raised the possibility that Clinton´s proximity to Gilbert Chagoury, one of Nigeria´s most prominent businessmen, was related to the delay. The agency has stonewalled

Ratings in: Most-watched
presidential debate ever
Washington Examiner, by Jason Russell    Original Article

Monday´s presidential debate set records as the most-watched presidential debate in American history. The debate averaged 80.9 million viewers, according to Nielsen, across the 12 channels that carried it live. That barely beats the previous record, 80.6 million viewers, set by the only debate in 1980 between Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan. For the 2016 debate, 80.9 million viewers translates to roughly one in four Americans. In 1980, 80.6 million viewers would have been more than one in three Americans. No other debate comes within 10 million viewers of the new record. There have been 26 presidential debates from 1976

A transgender teenager who was hospitalized for suicidal depression — and later killed himself — faced discrimination from medical staff who kept calling the boy a girl, a new lawsuit says. A federal civil suit filed Monday says Kyler Prescott, a 14-year-old transgender boy, left San Diego’s Rady Children´s Hospital in April 2015 feeling “shocked, angry, humiliated, anxious and depressed” from discrimination during his brief stay. (Snip) According to a civil complaint, Kyler Prescott was assigned the female gender at birth, but started living as boy as early as 10. By the time he was 14, Prescott had come out to

From racing to breast pump in between speeches, to last minute speech practice in an empty locker room, Chelsea Clinton certainly had her hands full at the Democratic National Conference. Juggling looking after a newborn with almost any other responsibility can be incredibly tough, as any new parent will testify. But new mom Chelsea has described the difficulty of not only having to care for her six-week-old son, but to prepare to address millions in a historic speech to introduce the first Democratic female candidate. In a lengthy interview with MarieClaire, the mother-of-two described how she prepared for weeks with

A month ago, just after Colin Kaepernick´s protest against racial injustice hit the mainstream, the 49ers quarterback was told by Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump to leave the country. Clearly, Trump did not approve of Kaepernick´s decision to kneel during the national anthem. On Tuesday, a day after the first presidential debate between Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, Kaepernick responded to those remarks. He called Trump´s comment "ignorant" and criticized Trump´s campaign slogan, "Make America great again." According to Kaepernick, that slogan should read, "Let´s make America great for the first time." "That´s a very ignorant statement that if you

KYIV - Former NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen claimed in an interview with independent Ukrainian broadcaster Hromadske that Russian President Vladimir Putin was a pro-Western politician when he first came to power in late 1999, but later soured on his relationship with the West. “The first time we saw each other was in May 2002. At that time, he was a very pro-Western and pro-European president. I had met him under different circumstances in later years, and each time his attitude become increasingly negative. All this because of the color revolutions in Georgia and Ukraine. He was convinced that the revolutions

As the victim tried to run, the attacker continued hitting him with the hatchet’s handle, police said. It appears to be a random attack, said Officer Giselle Talkoff, a spokeswoman for the San Francisco Police Department. A short distance away, the man fell to the ground,

HILLARY CLINTON spoke about how her father printed curtains for a living in the first US presidential debate last night. But who was her dad Hugh Rodham? Mrs Clinton said that her upbringing in a hardworking family made her the strongest candidate to slash unemployment and put millions of Americans in work. During the televised debate last night, she told the audience: “My father was a small-businessman. “He worked really hard. He printed drapery fabrics on long tables, where he pulled out those fabrics and he went down with a silkscreen and dumped the paint in and took the squeegee and

The White House on Tuesday ridiculed Donald Trump’s assertion that Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen is playing politics in her management of the central bank by keeping interest rates low during President Obama’s tenure. “The charge, of course, is preposterous, and it is baseless,” said White House press secretary Josh Earnest. “There has been no evidence to marshal to support it.” In the first presidential debate Monday night, Mr. Trump said the Fed under Ms. Yellen’s leadership “is being more political than Hillary Clinton.” “We have a Fed that’s doing a political thing — this Janet Yellen of the Fed

President Obama on Tuesday argued that Donald Trump shouldn´t have his finger on the nuclear button because he doesn´t have the "preparation, the temperament or the core values" to be president. Obama phoned in to Ryan Seacrest´s radio show the morning after this first debate between Trump and Hillary Clinton to talk about the importance of voter registration. But he also readily offered his thoughts on the debate, according to a CNN report of the on-air discussion.

Back in the 1960s, as large numbers of black students were entering a certain Ivy League university for the first time, someone asked a chemistry professor -- off the record -- what his response to them was. He said, "I give them all A´s and B´s. To hell with them." Since many of those students were admitted with lower academic qualifications than other students, he knew that honest grades in a tough subject like chemistry could lead to lots of failing grades, and that in turn would lead to lots of time-wasting hassles -- not just from the students, but

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -Kae Roberts and Jay Eardly were leaning toward Hillary Clinton before Monday night’s debate. By the end, they had both pulled away. John Kokos and Hank Federal were undecided going in, potential Clinton backers. By the end, they’d ruled her out. Indeed, while polls found that Clinton had won the first general-election debate with Donald Trump on Monday, she may not have won actual votes. And she may even have lost some, at least in the battleground state of North Carolina. In a focus group of 21 voters from around Charlotte conducted by McClatchy and The Charlotte Observer,

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.- Constant interruption. A condescending tone. Eye-rolling. For many women, the presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump was a case study in deja vu. For more than 90 minutes on a national stage, they said Tuesday, Trump subjected the first female presidential candidate from a major party to indignities they experience from men daily, in the workplace and beyond. Tweeted Chicago-based writer Britt Julious: "Thoughts & prayers to every woman watching the #debates & getting painful flashbacks to dudes talking over them at work, school, home, etc." "The sad thing," said Christina Emery, an author from

In two recent cases, he noted the FBI is looking over its past investigation of the Orlando nightclub shooter -- and the bureau´s prior interactions with the father of Ahmad Rahami, who was charged last
