Clinton’s support drops 16%

David Bowie sang of the lure of the “Young American,” but the Hillary Clinton campaign has been losing favorability among America’s youth, with the Democratic candidate’s popularity dropping 16 percent from a year ago, according to the latest Gallup poll. Gallup tracked the presidential candidate’s appeal over the month of July and found that only 31 percent of 18-to-29-year-old Americans had a favorable view of Hillary Clinton. That is a drop of 16 percentage points from a year ago, when the same age group gave her a 47 percent favorability rating, which was higher than that given by other age groups. “Clinton’s popularity

For anyone who’s ever had the urge to pee on Donald Trump, one Irish pub has got you covered. Adelphi pub in Dublin recently unveiled a new urinal that allows patrons to cover The Donald’s face in urine. It’s proving quite popular. So much so, the pub is even considering something similar for the ladies’ bathroom. Funnily, the idea of peeing on Trump’s face isn’t a new one. The Atlas Ballroom in Indiana installed Trump urinal cakes in February. In Canada, the District Stop nightclub in Winnipeg made a mural of Trump with a urinal where his mouth should be. The mural,

Hundreds of soldiers detained in the fallout of the July 15 coup attempt have been released, Turkish state media reported. As many as 758 of the 989 soldiers held after that failed power grab were freed Saturday, on the recommendation of a judge in Istanbul after the soldiers provided testimony on their involvement in the execution of the plot to oust President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The judge called the detention of the soldiers, including military students, unnecessary. However, 231 soldiers remain behind bars. Suspects can be detained for up to 30 days without charge under a new presidential decree issued in

GOP voters for picking Trump

The Democratic National Committee Saturday launched a "100 Days Fund," noting there are just 100 days until the election and mocking Republican voters for picking exactly the type of candidate the Republican Party vowed to ignore after losing in 2012. "No matter how they hide their bigotry or rephrase their bad ideas, [Donald] Trump and [Mike] Pence are simply unfit to lead. We´re all that´s standing between them and the Oval Office, and as of tomorrow we´ll have just 100 days left to stop them — that´s where the 100 Days Fund comes in," said the DNC.

Incredible aerial photos have captured the devastation left behind after colossal wildfires have wiped out forests in Antelope Island in the Great Salt Lake and destroyed at least 60 homes in California´s Big Sur coast. The deadly blaze, which has already threatened hundreds more homes and spurred mass evacuations, could widen more than five times its current size, authorities said Saturday. The so-called Soberanes Fire, which started on July 22 and is burning just south of the oceanside town of Carmel-by-the-Sea, has roared through nearly 32,000 acres (13,000 hectares) of drought-parched chaparral, grass and timber in the Los Padres National

COLORADO SPRINGS — Billionaire industrialist Charles Koch on Saturday chastised the political class, saying that those seeking public office were offering "frightening" answers and largely failing to promote a society that provides opportunity for all. “Our goal is to unite people from all walks of life to work for what we call a free and open society — a society of opportunity, of free speech, free exchange, and what we call permissionless innovation,” Koch told conservative donors assembled in a hotel ballroom here for the opening reception of his political network’s semiannual retreat. “This would be a society where people

COLORADO SPRINGS — The Koch political network, which has steadfastly refused to engage in the 2016 presidential contest, plans to invoke Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in paid messages to voters as part of its campaigns supporting GOP Senate candidates, top officials said Saturday. “We are going to tie the Democrat candidates to Hillary Clinton and the failed policies that she supports, and highlight the differences with the Republican candidates that we favor and that we’re supporting,” said Mark Holden, chairman of the board of Freedom Partners Chamber of Commerce, the network’s funding arm. In Ohio, for example, Koch-backed groups

Donald Trump has promised not only to be the voice of the American people but also to take decisive, immediate action. As president, he has said he would move fast to destroy the Islamic State, scrap bad trade deals, build that wall, “stop the gangs and the violence,” and “stop the drugs from pouring into our communities.” He would “immediately suspend immigration” from countries where terrorism is rampant. He might even defy treaty obligations and decline to aid NATO allies. The Republican nominee has led some to conclude that he intends a sweeping expansion of presidential authority. His rhetoric implies

Every now and again, when politics reaches an unbearable fever-pitch of idiocy, one is tempted to trade the eternal push and pull of democratic consensus for that perfect mixture of wisdom and power found in the person of Plato’s un-democratic Philosopher-King. Plato’s paradox—that the just, happy city will elude us until kings learn to philosophize or philosophers become kings—is meant to sober our expectations of earthly governance. If we set our sights somewhat lower, maybe the best to be hoped for are philosophers or the philosophically inclined to find their way to the halls of power, ready to serve those

With 100 days to go until the United States decides who will be its next commander-in-chief, Donald Trump´s Republican campaign is preparing to launch an attack on five main fronts that he believes will help him win the White House. As the clock to the November 8 election starts ticking, Mr Trump will travel to key states, seeking to recruit disaffected Bernie Sanders supporters, exploit anger among white working class men, fire up America´s huge gun-owning population, capitalise on post-Brexit fervour, and promise jobs. Hillary Clinton set out her stall last week as the reliable, experienced candidate at the Democratic convention

It was inevitable. Forget the way Roger Ailes departed from Fox News.

This would be called “mortality.” And it knocks on the door of every human being, even for the creators of Fox News. Fox News has met The Transition.

Amazon´s founder and CEO Jeff Bezos has surpassed Warren Buffett as the third richest person in the world. Buffett now sits at the fourth rank with a net worth of $65 billion, while Bezos passed him Thursday and is currently worth $66.5 billion, according to Bloomberg´s Billionaires Index. This comes as American tech billionaires are reshaping global wealth ranking and race one another to the top - a trend that became clearer as companies published their second-quarter earnings this past week. The founders of Facebook, Amazon and Google´s parent company Alphabet have added a combined $5.6 billion to their fortunes

Turkey has sent police to surround the Incirlik air base it operates with the United States — and where a large stockpile of NATO nuclear weapons is held — ahead of a visit by a senior US official tomorrow. Unconfirmed reports out of Turkey suggest all entrances to the air base have been blocked by heavy vehicles and police sent to secure its peremiter. The unusual nigh-time move sparked rumours of a second coup attempt on Turkish social media, with concerned citizens rushing to the air base to join the blockade. The move comes less than a week after a top US Army general was accused by Turkish media of ‘leading’ the uprising

Why NASA still believes

The day Gil Levin says he detected life on Mars, he was waiting in his lab at NASA´s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, watching a piece of paper inch out of a printer. Levin snatched the sheet and scrutinized the freshly inked graph. A thin line measuring radioactive carbon crept steadily upward, just as it always did when Levin performed the test with microbes on Earth. But this data came from tens of millions of miles away, where NASA´s Viking lander was — for the first time in history — conducting an experiment on the surface of Mars. "Gil, that's life," his co-investigator, Patricia Straat, exclaimed when she saw the first results come in.

Champaign County State´s Attorney Julia Rietz had just finished walking in a July 4th parade when her assistant told her a central Illinois man had been arrested on suspicion of burning an American flag. Rietz said she knew "immediately" that the Urbana Police Department needed to release Bryton Mellott, who posted a video of the act on Facebook and whom police initially said they arrested to protect from threats. The state law used to jail him, though clear in its prohibition of desecrating either the U.S. or state flags, is unconstitutional. An Associated Press analysis shows at least 40 states

Muslims have refused to bury one of the terrorists who murdered a French Catholic priest this week as he celebrated Mass. Community leaders in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray, Normandy said they did not want to "taint" Islam by having any association with Adel Kermiche, the 19-year-old jihadist who killed Father Jacques Hamel in his hometown in northern France. Mohammed Karabila, president of the local Muslim cultural association and imam of one of the town´s mosques, told Le Parisien newspaper: "We´re not going to taint Islam with this person. We won´t participate in preparing the body or the burial."

The Eurobarometer poll found that more than half – 51 per cent – of French and Germans were “totally pessimistic” about the EU’s future. This compared to 46 per cent of Britons, who voted to leave the European Union on June 23, three weeks after the study, which was conducted between May 21 and May 31. More than half of respondents in Greece (70 per cent), Cyprus (54 per cent) and Hungary (52 per cent) were also totally pessimistic about the future of the EU. It means that the EU’s so-called “index of optimism” has reached its lowest level since spring 2013

Less than a week before the 2016 Rio Olympics are set to start, the Brazil Ministry of Justice terminated its contract with a private firm that was supposed to provide security for the games. The ministry cited “incompetence and irresponsibility” from the Rio de Janeiro-based firm Artel, and moved to strip them of their duties. It’s not hard to see why the Ministry of Justice reacted so harshly. With only a few days left until the first venues are set to open, Artel admitted that they have only hired 500 security personnel. They were supposed to hire 3,400. These staff

60 years ago today, President Dwight Eisenhower signed legislation officially making “In God We Trust” our national motto. In 1955, Eisenhower signed a bill that mandated all U.S. currency and coins bear the inscription "In God We Trust," but it wasn´t officially adopted as the national motto until one year later. Before that, there was no official motto in the U.S. "Even though the motto was not officially adopted until 1956, it is interwoven into the fabric of this nation, from our founding documents, to our currency, to inscriptions on our government buildings," Sen.

Speaking exclusively to Breitbart News, political polling pioneer Pat Caddell said the Reuters news service was guilty of an unprecedented act of professional malpractice after it announced Friday it has dropped the “Neither” option from their presidential campaign tracking polls and then went back and reconfigured previously released polls to present different results with a reinterpretation of the “Neither” responses in those polls. “This comes as close as I have ever seen to cooking the results,” said the legendary pollster and political consultant. “I suppose you can get away with it in polling because there are no laws.

Nearly one in 10 superdelegates who voted in the Democratic presidential primaries were registered lobbyists, according to a new report, adding some support to Bernie Sanders´s claim that "the system is rigged." At least 63 of 712 superdelegates were registered at some point as lobbyists on the state or federal level, according to an analysis conducted this year by the nonpartisan, nonprofit Sunlight Foundation. These individuals represented interests that span across big banks, healthcare insurers, the telecommunications industry and unions, including Goldman Sachs and Planned Parenthood. The list includes former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, who is currently registered for

Donald Trump says the fall debate schedule is "unacceptable," raising the specter that he may try to skip them. In a tweet on Friday night, Trump incorrectly said that Hillary Clinton and the Democrats are "trying to rig the debates." In fact, the fall debate schedule was determined almost a year ago by the nonpartisan Commission on Presidential Debates, a private group made up of both Republicans and Democrats. RNC chief strategist Sean Spicer invoked criticism of the commission on CNN Saturday morning, saying "The entire system needs to be relooked at." The commission responded to Trump on Saturday by
