Economic Growth Stalls At

The truth is, those looking overseas for growth opportunities are the smart ones, because if we have another four years like President Barack Obama´s past eight, you´d have to be an idiot to invest in America with this assault on growth by Washington, D.C." That was Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning´s shooting-from-the-hip response to the latest revision to the gross domestic product by the Bureau of Economic Analysis in the second quarter. The number was revised downward from a tepid, inflation-adjusted 1.2% annualized to 1.1%. Basically put, that stinks. As Manning noted, "Combined with the really bad 0.8% in the

Hillary Clinton: You Must Pay

Ever since the Democratic National Convention concluded, and especially since Hillary Clinton chose Virginia Sen. 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. In past years, the Democratic platform vaguely referenced public funding, saying access to abortion should be legally

Hillary Clinton has built-in advantages in the presidential race. 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. She is blanketed by

The destruction, the annihilation, the conspiracy to destroy the middle class is real. 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. Pew’s latest research reports that between 1999 and 2014 more than four-fifths of

WikiLeaks drops Hillary email

When Hillary Clinton is asked about her plan to invade Libya while she was secretary of state, she often passes the buck to President Obama, saying he ultimately had to make the final decision. 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. Take a look: (Snip for graphic of email)Just a few days ago, conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh made a big prediction about Clinton’s involvement in Libya and

Morning Consult: Trump closes

We’ve been tracking the polls from Morning Consult since the general election officially got underway as something of a trends benchmark, if not a hard snapshot from week to week. Their sample size is solid, and while the demos might seem a bit curious they remain consistent. This week’s results were just released and there are some eye opening numbers which seem to fly in the face of the constant drumbeat of headlines about how terrible things are going for Donald Trump and the Republicans. Last week we discussed how MC was showing some improvements for Trump, but their analysts

A family of six Congolese refugees arrived in Missoula last week to begin their new life far from the Tanzanian refugee camp where they had lived for many years.Good for them. Unfortunately, too many voices, including two Montana newspapers, have tried to vilify everyday Americans who insist that our own safety and well-being must come first — yes, even before the interests of refugees.Both the Missoulian and the Bozeman Chronicle ran editorials last week that chastised GOP gubernatorial candidate Greg Gianforte for sending out a campaign mailer that proclaims “Montana security first” and chides Gov.

Hugo Chávez vs. Hugo Chávez:
Venezuela in race to put leader´s life on film

BOGOTA, COLOMBIA It’s socialism v. capitalism, north v. south, Hugo Chávez v. 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. The starring role in the Spanish-language production has gone to Andres Parra, who’s best known for playing Colombian cocaine don Pablo Escobar in the series “El

An article in the Muslim journal where Huma Abedin was assistant editor claimed Bill Clinton bombed Saddam Hussein to deflect from his Monica Lewinsky affair. The claim made made in an article published in the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs, where Abedin was a member of the editorial board - the group of people who decide what is published in the academic journal. It is the latest bombshell to emerge from the archives of the journal, whose editor-in-chief is Abedin´s mother, Saleha Mahmood Abedin, an academic in Saudi Arabia. Abedin, who is not an academic, has been Hillary Clinton´s closest aide since spending

On August 3, the flying monkeys in the press received their daily orders from Team Clinton. Let´s see if readers can pick up on this. From Politico: "Trump´s nuclear nightmare. His loose talk on the ultimate weapon isn´t so different from official doctrine, but it plays into Clinton´s attacks on his temperament, nonetheless." From the New York Times: "Donald J. Trump’s remarks on nuclear weapons have brought him, at times, to a question: Why should he be constrained from ever using them?” (Snip)At one point during his second term, Secret Service agents tell me, President Clinton managed to lose the plastic authenticator

A controversy has erupted today because San Francisco 49er’s Quarterback Colin Kaepernick refused to stand up during the playing of the national anthem. “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.” ~ Colin Kaepernick So what exactly is going on.

This is a little bit funny and a little bit perplexing. Many might point to this as evidence of a deteriorating health condition. Hillary Clinton is the first and only nominee for President who never held a press conference during the entire Democrat primary race. Yet, somehow she still won the Democrat presidential nomination. Quite a remarkable feat considering the lack of engagement. Then again, she appears to have multiple advocates in the media running cover.Additionally interesting is that Secretary Clinton appears to be following the same strategy, and even, well, ‘stunningly‘, expanding the intentional lack of engagement, for the

It was the first firefight for his six-man reconnaissance unit from SEAL Team 6, and it was outnumbered, outgunned and taking casualties on an Afghan mountaintop.A half-dozen feet or so to his right, John Chapman, an Air Force technical sergeant acting as the unit’s radioman, lay wounded in the snow.

COLLEYVILLE Jon Farr admits there was a moment, as the garage door came rattling down, when he thought spending the night in the home of his father’s alleged killer might not be such a good idea. Farr drove down from Kansas City in March to meet with Cullen Davis, believed by many to be the infamous “man in black” responsible for gunning down four people at his Fort Worth mansion 40 years ago. Four people were shot and two were killed, a 12-year-old girl and Farr’s dad, former TCU basketball player Stan Farr. “I came into the garage, bag in hand, and

This may go down in history as the presidential election that made everyone angry. That, at least, would offer some hope that Americans´ taste in presidential candidates might be redeemable. For now, though, all is bleak. The crook keeps proving more unabashedly crooked and the flake just keeps getting flakier. There´s no new lesson to learn from plumbing the depths of Hillary Clinton´s corruption or marveling at the heights of her mendacity. She´s as dirty as the day is long, and has been since the day she wriggled out of the Arkansas mud to become a public figure. This we knew. All



What About the Alt-Left?

Secretary of State Clinton’s decision to play the racism card against Donald Trump strikes us as lacking in credibility — given the source. There is no doubt that the Republican nominee has stirred up the xenophobes with his harsh rhetoric in respect of immigration and is being cheered on by the racist David Duke and his ilk. The New York Sun wants no part of them and neither does the GOP. But the Democratic Party has its own fringe for which to answer before Mrs. Clinton has any standing to make a megillah of the “alt-right.” What about the alt-left? This

Why Is Obama Stonewalling on Details

‘Confidentiality”? Yes, that’s the State Department’s story on why the Obama administration is stonewalling the American people regarding the president’s illegal and increasingly suspicious Iransom payoff. The administration refuses to divulge any further information about the $1.7 billion the president acknowledges paying the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism. Grilled on Wednesday about how Obama managed to pay the final $1.3 billion installment — particularly given the president’s claim that it is not possible to send Tehran a check or wire-transfer — State Department spokesman Mark Toner decreed that the administration would continue “withholding this information” in order “to protect

Now, a few clicks and there we have what we had remembered but not saved. It will come as no surprise to regular readers of the Washington Post to learn that one of their oped writers Ruth Marcus is easily exposed as a partisan spinner in a quick check of a comparison of her treatment of Hillary Clinton and former Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell.

According to most polls taken since last month’s party conventions, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton enjoys an insurmountable lead over Republican nominee Donald Trump. Consequently, a number of commentators on both sides of the partisan divide have declared the race over. Clinton, they say, has won. There are several problems with this conclusion. First of all, the “official campaign,” won’t begin until September 26, when Clinton and Trump face off in their first presidential debate. Clinton is not a stellar debater and Trump, a seasoned entertainer, excels in these formats. Second, recent polls indicate that Trump is closing the gap.

One of the top guardians of American freedoms just entered the fight against the Obama administration’s insane excesses in the name of “trans rights.” The Department of Health and Human Services recently issued rules telling doctors they can’t decline to perform gender-reassignment surgery on kids if it’s recommended by a “mental health professional.” Refusal could be a career-ender. How crazy is the rule? Well, for starters, most trans teens identify differently later in life — yet reassignment surgery is often irreversible, and even less-radical procedures can be harmful, as HHS’ own medical experts note. Not to mention that the Hippocratic

KUALA LUMPUR - Malaysian protesters staged a rally in Kuala Lumpur on Saturday (Aug 27), calling on authorities to take action against an official linked to the corruption scandal surrounding the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) state fund. The "#TangkapMO1" rally was called to urge authorities to arrest “Malaysian Official 1”, an unidentified high ranking official mentioned in the United States Department of Justice’s (DoJ) civil lawsuit last month. The lawsuit had alleged that the official had received US$700 million (S$S$951 million) of the money laundered out of the state fund, which is overseen by Prime Minister Najib Razak.

Gabon has voted in presidential elections to decide whether President Ali Bongo will be unseated by a career diplomat and associate of his late father. Unrest and economic anxiety have risen as oil prices slump. Gabon´s electorate lined up at polling stations Saturday tasked with a decision on whether to extend the 49-year rule of the Bongo family. President Ali Bongo, 57, has been in office since his father Omar - who ruled from 1967 - died in 2009. Ali Bongo has been challenged 73-year-old Jean Ping, an ex-African Union Commission chief who has worked under the elder Bongo. The incumbent has

DHAKA: Bangladesh security forces killed three militants on Saturday (Aug 27) including a Bangladesh-born Canadian citizen alleged to have masterminded an attack on a cafe in Dhaka last month in which 22 people, mostly foreigners, were killed, police said. The militants were cornered in a hideout on the outskirts of the capital and, having refused to surrender, were killed in the ensuing gunbattle, Monirul Islam, the head of the Dhaka police counterterrorism unit, told Reuters. He initially said four militants had been killed but later revised the number to three. The success notched up by the security forces came ahead of a visit
