Donald Trump lashed out at a fire marshal who directed crowds of people into another room after an auditorium at the University of Colorado where he was speaking reached maximum capacity. Trump said Brett Lacey, a 23-year veteran fire marshal in Colorado Springs, was ´probably a Democrat´ who didn´t know what he was doing before spiraling to the conclusion: ´That´s why we´re going to hell.´ Lacey, who was recognized in February for his service after a 2015 shooting at a Planned Parenthood clinic, said he was merely concerned with public safety. Trump spoke for nearly an hour at the Gallogly Events Center
PHILADELPHIA – The Democratic National Convention was almost literally a disaster area. Bernie Sanders suspended all party rules on the floor of the convention to personally nominate Hillary Clinton by a voice vote. Left-wing protesters rampaged in the streets. Pro-Bernie delegates walked off the convention floor in protest. Agitators seized the mainstream media’s control center against an outnumbered police force. Speakers were booed. Green Party candidate Jill Stein crashed the event and emerged as the new Bernie Sanders in the general election. A man set himself on fire stomping on a burning American flag. America now has a real two-party
Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump on Sunday enter the final 100 days of an extraordinary presidential campaign, with the former on a methodical march to energize the Obama coalition and appeal to the broad mainstream and the latter charting an unconventional path driven by a message of wholesale change. With their conventions behind them, the two nominees and their running mates will spend August in predictable ways: fleshing out their ideas for governing and mobilizing voters in battlegrounds such as Ohio and Pennsylvania, where Clinton campaigned over the weekend and where Trump will be Monday.
Gov. Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican nominee, recently admitted Donald Trump could win the 2016 election, after aggressively opposing the billionaire during the GOP primaries. “To be honest, it’s very possible in my view that Trump wins,” Romney stated during a recent “Radio Free GOP” interview, reported by BuzzFeed. He added: I wouldn’t think it’d be by a landslide, but I think he could win. I think he could lose, I think he could lose by a landslide. But, I don’t know which it’s going to be, and a lot of that depends on what happens to Hillary Clinton. Is there a meltdown moment, or some implosion of some kind?
A hot air balloon has caught fire and crashed in the US state of Texas, probably killing everyone on board, the local sheriff says. Aviation officials said at least 16 people were on board the balloon which came down near Lockhart, south of the city of Austin. Caldwell County sheriff Daniel Law said there did not appear to be survivors. A Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) statement said the balloon came down in a field at about 07:40 (12:40 GMT). The sheriff´s statement said that when emergency crews arrived, the basket of the hot air balloon was on fire. FAA investigators
For decades, the Harris Poll has gauged how much, or how little, people feel their interests are heard and addressed by those with power and influence. The latest survey found that 82 percent of Americans believe that the people running the country don’t really care what happens to them. Another 78 percent say the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer while 70 percent believe that most people in power try to take advantage of people like them. The survey also found that 68 percent believe that what they think doesn’t count very much anymore while 40
Merkel´s premiership is hanging by a thread today as thousands gathered to call for her resignation while a key political ally dramatically withdrew his support over immigration policy. More than 5,000 protested in Berlin and thousands more throughout Germany over the ´open-door´ policy that many have blamed for four brutal terrorist attacks that left 13 dead over the last month. The Chancellor faced a fresh wave of fury after it emerged that two recent terror attacks and a third killing were carried out by men who entered the country as refugees.
Hillary Clinton´s position on public charter schools has been fairly ambiguous since her presidential campaign began, but at least one teachers´ union leader says Clinton is on board with their view. "Hillary Clinton is on the exact same page as we are," Lily Eskelsen Garcia, president of the National Education Association, told the American Prospect´s Rachel Cohen. "[She] says there are some innovative charter schools that were designed to impact the system, to try something creative. But if a charter has any other reason for existing, like making someone money, then she does not support those, and neither do we.
All 16 people on board a hot air balloon that caught fire and crashed in Texas were killed, local officials have said. A blaze is believed to have broken out in the basket section of the balloon mid-flight before it came down in Lockhart, around 30 miles from Austin. The Caldwell County Sheriff´s Office told local media there were ´no survivors´. (Photos) ´The Balloon was occupied and it does not appear at this time that there were any survivors of the crash,´ the sheriff´s office said in a statement. Investigators are now determining the identities of victims. It is not
Philadelphia, embellished with fifty-seven fiberglass donkeys and a colorful mural, ´´went all out´´ for the Democratic National Convention and offered such dem-treats as Obama-inspired art (´´Dreams of my brother´´) and a ´´bringing together´´ party thrown by the Arab American Institute. The left has definitely ´´smashed four olds´´ by waving all kind of flags -- including the ol´ Soviet and the Palestinian ones, but forgetting about stars and stripes. The Old Glory was invited to DNC only after international press commented on ´´the embarrassing oversight.´´ Analogously, the speakers who mentioned varieties of communities, tended to skip Caucasians and Native Americans.

A Shawnee County judge has ruled that 17,500 voters can have their votes counted in state and local races as well as federal ones in Tuesday’s Kansas primary election. “Losing one’s vote is an irreparable harm in my opinion,” Judge Larry Hendricks said in his ruling Friday. A state board approved a rule earlier this month to allow people to vote only in federal elections – not state and local ones – if they registered at DMV offices but failed to provide proof of citizenship as required by Kansas law. The rule, crafted by Secretary of State Kris Kobach, was
Saturday, on the Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Breitbart editor at large Peter Schweizer, executive producer of the documentary based on his bestselling book “Clinton Cash,” stated that the Clinton Foundation’s large overseas donors “have histories of corruption, or being involved in bribery scandals.” Schweizer said that there’s no reason for an authoritarian government to give to the Clinton Foundation other than buying influence, and that the large overseas donors to the foundation “have histories of corruption, or being involved in bribery scandals.” He added, “Just because it’s a charity doesn’t mean that it’s

Donald J. Trump was in my hometown of Toledo, Ohio on Wednesday night, speaking to a crowd of working class Americans who have been watching their jobs go overseas. His success with these voters has been recognized by, of all people, the left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore, who suggested in an article titled “Five Reasons Why Trump Will Win” that Trump has found the key to victory in November. Moore declared, “I believe Trump is going to focus much of his attention on the four blue states in the rustbelt of the upper Great Lakes—Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.”
Training teachers to spot potential terrorists among their pupils will increase racism in Scotland, the country’s biggest teaching union has warned. Prevent is a new government-ordered scheme which requires teachers to report extremist behaviour or radicalised beliefs to authorities. The programme is designed to stop vulnerable children on the pathway to becoming violent terrorists. But the Educational Institute of Scotland (EIS) has spoken out against the scheme – claiming it will increase racist incidents at schools and that it is rooted in Islamophobia. (Snip) Case studies and training materials provided to teachers, she said, also focus on black and ethnic minority
Hillary Clinton has become the first female nominated for President of the United States but, should she win the election, she will not be the first female to occupy and control the Oval Office (insert Monica Lewinsky joke here). That honor arguably goes to Valerie Jarrett, currently Senior Adviser to President Obama. Jarrett, born in Iran to American parents, has been with the Obamas since her days as Deputy Chief of Staff in the office of Chicago Mayor Richard Daley, the elder. She hired Michelle Obama, them Michelle Robinson to fill an opening in the mayor’s office. As Wiikileaks describes the
Let’s be blunt about this. Not only did Democrats on the floor of the convention interrupt a moment of silence for fallen police officers. The official, mainstream, establishment leadership of the Democratic National Committee celebrated, by inviting his mother onstage, a man who actually attempted to kill a police officer. Honored along with other mothers of blacks killed by white police officers, in an event titled “Mothers of the movement,” was Lezley McSpadden, whose son Michael Brown was shot in August 2014 by Darren Wilson, a white Ferguson, Mo., police officer. McSpadden is second from the right in the video from
House Speaker Paul Ryan’s challenger for his seat in the U.S. House of Representatives Paul Nehlen said Thursday on Fox Business Network’s “Lou Dobbs Tonight” that the “Angel Moms” tried to present Ryan with a letter outside of his mansion only to for him to be whisked away, leaving them in the dust. (Snip) “Those ‘Angel Moms’ tried to contact Paul Ryan before. Those ‘Angel Moms’ are American mothers who came from around the country. They tried to contact Speaker Ryan before they came up there, but he wouldn’t listen to them so they came up and they spoke outside
Turkish President Recep Erdogan has cancelled 50,000 passports as his post-coup crackdown continues amid criticism from western states. Some 60,000 people have been arrested, removed from their jobs or suspended in the two weeks following the botched putsch. Dismissing the criticism, Erdogan has warned Western leaders to mind their own business as he strengthens his grip on the nation. He even intimated that the United States could have been supporting the plot. Speaking last night to hundreds of supporters in the presidential palace in Ankara, he said: ´The attitude of many countries and their officials over the coup attempt in Turkey is
Remember the 1950 movie, All About Eve? In that classic tale of ambition and treachery which won six Oscars, an ambitious Broadway wannabe, Eve Harrington, played by Anne Baxter, connives to push aside and replace an established star, Margo Channing, played by the legendary Bette Davis. In the film, Eve is described, cuttingly and accurately, as having “contempt for humanity… [an] inability to love and be loved, insatiable ambition,” and, yes, “talent.” So what does that have to do, you might be asking, with Megyn Kelly? At Breitbart News, we’ve been following, with dread fascination, Kelly’s relentless rise, and rise, and rise.
Kenosha, WI — Paul Nehlen’s campaign has launched a one-minute television ad featuring one of the American victims of House Speaker Paul Ryan’s open borders immigration agenda. (Video)The ad contains footage from a Saturday press conference that four “angel moms,” whose children were murdered by illegal aliens, held in front of Ryan’s personal border wall. During the press event, the mothers endorsed Nehlen in his August 9 primary election to unseat Ryan. The television ad, entitled “Lost Son,” features Julie Golvach, whose 25 year-old son, Spencer, was shot in the head by an illegal criminal alien. Her son’s killer had previously been
Republican nominee for President Donald Trump did not wait long to retaliate against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, in what is the opening salvo in a war of words and insults that is sure to accompany the campaign leading to the US Presidential election in November. Clinton spoke Thursday night at the Democratic National Convention, and attacked what she portrayed as Trump´s divisiveness, saying that the Republican nominee "wants us to fear each other." Utilizing Twitter to attack with short comments, as is his wont, Trump opened by criticizing Clinton for not mentioning the term "Radical Islam" in her speech:
Ret. Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn appeared on The Kelly File last night to respond to Ret. Gen. John Allen´s speech at the DNC Thursday where he denounced Donald Trump and expressed his support for Hillary Clinton. "I honestly don´t know how John Allen can look at himself in the mirror and say why he supports Hillary Clinton," Flynn said. (Snip)Flynn said Allen, who was in charge of U.S. strategy against ISIS, "failed" at his job to contain and destroy them. Flynn said ISIS and radical Islam "exponentially grew" under the watch of Gen. Allen. "General Allen, as a retired officer, was
The former US secretary of state who has been scorched over her Middle Eastern policy says a "full review" of the issue will be the "first key task" of her presidency. Mrs Clinton, who has been facing an FBI investigation into the hacking of her email by activists, announced her plans yesterday via her former chief of staff on security. The UK and US Governments have thus far refused to get involved in a full-on conflict in the country that has been destroyed by civil war since 2011. Now it seems that despite President Assad´s relationship with Russian president Vladimir
