Mike Pence laced into Hillary Clinton and her running mate on Sunday for trying to tie Donald Trump and his supporters to white supremacist groups and brand the Republican presidential nominee as racist. "Sen. [Tim] Kaine´s comments [and] Hillary Clinton´s comments on Thursday night sound desperate to me," Pence, the GOP vice presidential nominee, told CNN´s Jake Tapper.

His mother, Alison, never heard the call. Welles left a short message. “Mom ... this is Welles. I ... I want you to know that I’m OK.” The time was 9:12 a.m. They were the last words his family would ever hear him speak. Some details of what happened next remain a mystery. But through determination, careful questioning and a single clue, Welles’ parents uncovered a story of heroism that would touch ´Challenging night´ leaves two dead, two injured Sun, 28 07 2016 06:07:02 GMT 5eb84ee8a432473dfa3b75311dbeb569f849cb6e Boston Herald (MA), by Kathleen McKiernan Posted By: JoniTx- Sun, 28 07 2016 06:07:02 GMT A deadly surge in street ?violence that left two people dead and two others wounded in four separate overnight shootings — three of which police say appear to be tied to parties ahead of the Caribbean Carnival — sent shock waves through the Hub and has city officials turning to the public for help.Police say the bloodshed began about 9:15 p.m. Friday, when a man shot on Standard Street in Mattapan was left with non'life'threatening injuries. Four hours later, a man in his mid'20s was gunned down on Westville Street in Dorchester, where police Commissioner William B.

She does have the presidential debates scheduled but there are no more Clinton campaign rallies scheduled anytime in the future. It is really no wonder. Hillary’s ‘Racist Pepe’ speech in Reno was horrible for all involved. For starters, it almost didn’t start – it was actually 2 hours late in starting. It is unknown if Hillary was ill or whether she was waiting for more people to show up. Finally, someone had the courage to tell her that the show must go on.

We hiked through meadows dotted with wildflowers, slept beneath snow'draped peaks and met plenty of other hikers: the dad and son whose Green Bay Packers caps sparked a conversation about our mutual ties to Wisconsin; scientists from UC Santa Cruz studying flowers and rock formations; five recent college grads from Kentucky who were hiking the John Muir Trail before they scattered to begin their adult lives. But as the days passed, I grew increasingly troubled by the people we didn’t meet.

The 74'year'old actress, a lifelong Democrat who endorses Hilary Clinton in the US election, made the admission during an interview with 60 Minutes. Barbra told Sydney'based journalist Michael Usher on Sunday she would consider relocating to Australia or Canada in the event of a Trump presidency.

The resettlement program has emerged as an issue in the U.S. presidential campaign, with Republican nominee Donald Trump alleging displaced Syrians pose a potential security threat. Alice Wells, the U.S. ambassador to Jordan, said Sunday that keeping Americans safe and taking in some of the world´s most vulnerable people are not mutually exclusive.

Joni Ernst, the first woman combat veteran elected to the U.S. Senate, railed against Hillary Clinton during her second annual Roast and Ride on Saturday. “She has failed us,” Ernst stated. “She has failed members of our military. She is not fit to be our Commander in Chief.” “It’s all about her when it should be all about you,” Ernst declared to more than 1,800 Republican supporters. Several Hawkeye state women who attended Ernst’s event told Breitbart News the reason they can’t support Clinton — the first female presidential candidate from a major party — is because Morning Consult Poll: Clinton Lead Drops From 9 Pts To 3 In Just THREE Weeks Sun, 28 35 2016 04:35:06 GMT 57eec86d5945d2cadc36f0d077247591a80c7688 Breitbart Presidential Race, by Breitbart News Posted By: earlybird- Sun, 28 35 2016 04:35:06 GMT A new poll from Morning Consult Intelligence has revealed that U.S. Republican candidate Donald Trump has closed the gap between him and Democrat hopeful Hillary Clinton, being just 3 points behind in data released on Sunday morning. According to the intelligence and campaigns firm, 43 per cent of registered voters say they will vote for Mrs. Clinton, while 40 per cent claim they’ll opt for Mr. Trump. “The matchup hasn’t been this close since late July, when Morning Consult’s poll showed a 3'point Clinton lead over Trump, 43 percent to 40 percent.” Seven ways the Clinton Foundation failed to meet its transparency promises Sun, 28 27 2016 04:27:40 GMT 413d530203ec966e3c54868e95751b44c031f70f The Hill, by Jonathan Swan Posted By: earlybird- Sun, 28 27 2016 04:27:40 GMT Hillary Clinton made sweeping promises about transparency at her family’s foundation before she was confirmed in 2009 as President Obama’s secretary of State. At the time, Clinton was under pressure from senators in both parties and even the White House to agree to be transparent given the potential for ethical concerns with the Clinton Foundation, which has accepted donations or entered into charitable partnerships with foreign and corporate interests. During her confirmation hearing, the Clinton Foundation was mentioned 62 times as senators worried that foreign governments could use donations to the foundation to curry favor with the Clinton State Department. ´You should never play in the NFL again.

McCall Posted By: KarenJ1- Sun, 28 14 2016 04:14:40 GMT Polls in 1948 indicated Harry Truman had no chance to win the election. He ignored the ominous polls, took off on his whistle'stop tour and won the election anyway. Pollsters and pundits were shocked. Americans today would be wise to follow Truman’s lead and disregard the swarm of polls dominating the media landscape this year. Every major broadcast and cable network, and many major newspapers, feel compelled to sponsor their own political polls. But the polling conducted today by news outlets and universities does little to serve the public interest. The polls do, however, serve the branding and marketing interests of Trump Campaign Manager Conway: We Are Planning to Hold Minority Outreach Events in Inner Cities Sun, 28 14 2016 04:14:38 GMT 98f6fc4bf4ba79166147e213d83dc6714938ea3d Breitbart Video, by Pam Key Posted By: earlybird- Sun, 28 14 2016 04:14:38 GMT (Video)On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway pledged the campaign will be doing minority outreach events in inner cities.

In his first victory since the European Grand Prix at Baku, Rosberg controlled the event from the front for his sixth win of the season. But while his race was serene, there was pandemonium behind – starting when the Ferraris collided with Red Bull’s Max Verstappen at the first corner. Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo had nothing for Rosberg, but he did have an answer for Hamilton’s burn from the stern to finish second. Hamilton surged through from the back of the grid, after taking 55-places of grid penalties, Two brothers charged in shooting death of Dwyane Wade´s cousin Sun, 28 09 2016 04:09:30 GMT e036f898d4147d9966f2d5e6e7753e351206ca73 Chicago Tribune, by Tony Briscoe and Dawn Rhodes Posted By: NorthernDog- Sun, 28 09 2016 04:09:30 GMT Two brothers have been arrested in the shooting death of a cousin of Chicago Bull Dwyane Wade, Chicago police announced Sunday morning. Derren Sorrells, 22, and Darwin Sorrells Jr., 26, were charged with first'degree murder and attempted murder in connection with the homicide of Nykea Aldridge, according to Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi.

Almost a year on he may win the Hawkeye State in the presidential election. Republicans have only won Iowa once since Ronald Reagan – in 2004, when George Bush eked out a win by 10,000 of more than 1.5 million votes. And yet, among the traditional battleground states, Iowa has become perhaps Trump’s best hope of a win. While national polls show the Republican far behind his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, recent Iowa polls Making freshmen read ‘Between the World and Me’ is a mistake Sun, 28 22 2016 03:22:57 GMT 88a8c9605127a64c6fb55dee739113c2fa4e755b New York Post, by Robert Cherry Posted By: PageTurner- Sun, 28 22 2016 03:22:57 GMT Dozens of US colleges, including NYU and my Brooklyn College, have chosen Ta'Nehisi Coates’ “Between the World and Me” as their common freshman reading. It’s a terrible mistake — and does the students a great disservice. The book documents Coates’ fear and loathing of police and white political structures. Published last year, it won the National Book Award for nonfiction and Coates was awarded a MacArthur so'called genius grant. The book has become the intellectual and emotional voice of the Black Lives Matter movement. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor referenced it in her dissenting opinion on a criminal case.

Tim Kaine for vice president, the federal abortion funding limit called the Hyde Amendment has been much in the news. That is because the amendment, which restricts federal funding for abortion to instances of rape and incest or where the life of the mother would be endangered if the baby were carried to term, has been a fixture of national policy since 1976. Now Democrats want to change that.

The media´s liberal bias that benefits her campaign has been on display for months. After her coast'to'coast fundraising whirl last week, Clinton´s war chest is overflowing. She "is pushing the boundaries of fundraising further than any presidential nominee ever has," Evan Halper wrote in the Los Angeles Times. She is also backed by Barack Obama, the sitting president. Okay, Obama may hurt more than he helps in some ways, but he´s good for fundraising. That´s not all. Clinton has other advantages that have largely escaped the media´s focus.

The murder of the middle class is not a theory. It’s not an opinion. It’s not a figgment of my imagination. It’s a proven fact. Three studies were published backing up what I’m saying. Sometimes, timing isn’t important—it’s everything. A definitive study was released by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center. Yes, Pew is the same research group mentioned earlier who studied and identified the dominant percentage of whites versus minorities among the middle class.

But, new emails from WikiLeaks’ hack into Clinton’s private email server show she openly bragged about having a “critical voice” in the invasion of Libya, which ultimately led to the rise of the Islamic State and the Syrian refugee crisis.

Their sample size is solid, and while the demos might seem a bit curious they remain consistent.

Hugo Chávez — at least on the small screen. Cash'strapped Venezuela announced this week that it’s making a movie and a television series based on the life of late President Chávez to compete against commercial projects already in the works. In May, California'based Sony Pictures Television said it was making “El Comandante,” a series based on the controversial leader who succumbed to cancer in 2013.
