But the vote dramatically split the Republican Party, a sign that GOP leaders are once again angering conservatives who want a more thoughtful process when it comes to spending. Many conservatives were also opposed to language in the bill that didn´t go as far as they wanted toward blocking funds for clinics associated with Planned Parenthood.

Ipsos spoke to 570 Republicans for the poll. That’s 33 percent of the total. That’s media fraud. Prepare for the landslide. Enabler or family defender?

Now, her Republican opponent Donald Trump and his surrogates have signaled that he may bring up the subject in the next presidential debate, treacherous territory, given his own infidelities and treatment of women. Clinton’s friends say they have seen her deal with Bill Clinton’s conduct before, bristling at threats and countering them with steely determination.

The bill extends current government funding levels until early December, giving appropriators time to negotiate 2017 spending measures. It also provides year'long funding for veterans programs, $1.1 billion to address the Zika virus and $500 million in emergency flood relief for Louisiana and other states. The House approved the bill in a 342'85 late'night vote, hours after senators voted 77'21 to pass the measure.

Donald Trump raced to the front of the GOP pack by focusing on illegal immigration. For months, liberals inside and outside of the press denounced Trump’s immigration views, accusing him of being a bigot, etc. But immigration has now disappeared from the news. In the first Clinton'Trump debate, moderator Leslie Holt never mentioned the subject. Why? Democrats understand that most voters side with Trump. Likewise with trade.

Tebow’s imitation of “The Natural” came Wednesday in Port St. Lucie, where he blasted an opposite'field home run on the first pitch he saw in a Mets instructional league game. Tebow, 29, was playing in his first competitive game since his junior year of high school — in 2005. “It’s fun to be back out there playing a game, playing a game I love and haven’t played in awhile, and getting to go Obama Statement on Shimon Peres: But Enough About Me Thu, 29 10 2016 02:10:34 GMT 67fe1aeb0d13cb7646abb03800a09a29df48278a White House Dossier, by Keith Koffler Posted By: Tianne- Thu, 29 10 2016 02:10:34 GMT President Obama last night issued a name'dropping, self'referential statement about Israeli President Shimon Peres, who died Tuesday at 93, noting three times that he and Shimon were “friends.” “My friend Shimon” “Our dear friend Shimon Peres” “I will always be grateful that I was able to call Shimon my friend.” Like, what kind of friends? As in, Hey Shimon, I’m calling because you’ll never guess what happened to me today!” They weren’t friends. I doubt if Peres, whose personality was seared in the struggle for the birth and preservation of Israel, had much respect for this man who rose to power through charm and little 1997 Video of Donald Trump and Alicia Machado – Miss Universe Press Event… Thu, 29 25 2016 01:25:52 GMT 2d830c9f30ac7811689b2c034a817fa7ab0cae39 Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance Posted By: PageTurner- Thu, 29 25 2016 01:25:52 GMT Here is the video Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Campaign are selling as intensely controversial. The video is from 20'years'ago in 1997 where Donald Trump and 1996 Miss Universe Alicia Machado appeared together at a joint press event: Team Clinton are manufacturing an outrage, and the water'carrying media is intent on pushing their narrative.

Rawlings'Blake told reporters Wednesday that State´s Attorney Marilyn Mosby rushed to prosecute six police officers in the death of a young black man whose neck was broken in the back of a transport wagon. (Snip) The mayor´s comments were in response to a profile of Mosby in The New York Times Magazine in which she said the mayor disseminated false information about the investigation into Gray´s death. In the story Mosby recalled "screaming" at Rawlings'Blake and blaming Mount Barujari: 1,000 tourists evacuated in Indonesia after volcano eruption Thu, 29 16 2016 01:16:40 GMT f8db86328687a5335c914d966ff2ee3c7de6d4e4 Christian Science Monitor, by Rowena Lindsay Posted By: PageTurner- Thu, 29 16 2016 01:16:40 GMT Indonesia´s Search and Rescue Agency has evacuated approximately 1,000 tourists after a volcano on the Indonesian island of Lombok erupted unexpectedly on Tuesday, shooting a 6,560'foot column of ash into the sky. No injuries have been reported from the eruption that took place on Mount Barujari, a small mountain within Mount Rinjani, one of the most active volcanoes in the region. Approximately 50 climbers are yet to be accounted for, but they are believed to be safe.

And perhaps initially those were his intentions. But when the results of open and closed primaries showed overwhelming support for Trump from participating voters, it became clear he was the Republican candidate to beat. Sen. Ted Cruz (TX), also considered anti'status quo and rebellious, came out second. Understandably, the people who represent and benefit from the political, business, and media interests that are constantly under attack by Trump continually try to highlight his Alec Baldwin to Play Donald Trump on ‘Saturday Night Live’ (Video) Thu, 29 55 2016 12:55:49 GMT 2506d9e16b2f8ed50ffe7061ff2064cf74f30fc1 Breitbart Big Hollywood, by Daniel Nussbaum Posted By: JoniTx- Thu, 29 55 2016 12:55:49 GMT (Photo) Alec Baldwin will play Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on the upcoming 42nd season of Saturday Night Live, with a promotional video released Wednesday offering viewers the first chance to see the actor take on the role. The short promo video shows Baldwin and SNL cast member Kate McKinnon (who just picked up a Supporting Actress Emmy for her role on the show) getting into character as Trump and Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, respectively.

Gaffney recalled a discussion with Congressman Mike Pompeo of Kansas, in which Pompeo told him: Hillary Clinton made the case – I think pretty well, actually – for more of the same, and if you really want more of the same, whether it’s in immigration, whether it’s in trade policy, whether it’s in Hillary’s Talk of ‘Implicit Bias’ Should Scare Every American Thu, 29 44 2016 12:44:15 GMT 876006f8234f808a6622ea7025e1fe074e4cb16d National Review, by David French Posted By: Tianne- Thu, 29 44 2016 12:44:15 GMT You’re guilty and you don’t know it. Sure, you think you’re a decent person who treats people fairly, judging them on the content of their character and not the color of the skin. But let’s face it: You’re deluded. Especially if you happen to be white, you’re biased and you don’t even know it. You’re unaware of your own privilege, and of the extent to which your beliefs, speech, and even mannerisms oppress people of color. It’s time to confess. It’s time to be re'educated. It’s time to rid yourself of your false consciousness.

Trump boasted after the debate that he could have gone there on Bill Clinton, but didn’t want to with his daughter in the room. Well, she responded to that in an interview with Cosmopolitan after the debate. Clinton said, “It’s a distraction from his inability to talk about what’s actually at stake in this election and to offer concrete, comprehensive proposals about the economy, or our public school system, or debt'free college, or keeping our country Fewer than one in five State Dept employees with security clearance completed classified info training Thu, 29 27 2016 12:27:40 GMT dd0faa3f1b1fbbc71830ba8b5a2263204cfcb608 Fox News, by Catherine Herridge Posted By: KarenJ1- Thu, 29 27 2016 12:27:40 GMT Fewer than one in five employees with a security clearance at the State Department has completed the mandated training for handling classified information as required by a 2009 Executive Order signed by President Obama, according to a new report from the government watchdog with oversight. (Snip) The report was commissioned after a 2013 review found severe deficiencies at the department when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state. “When Department employees and contractors are unaware of classification standards and no mechanism is in place to enforce training requirements, there is an increased risk that information could be incorrectly marked, misclassified, and/or ´All My Children´ Creator Agnes Nixon Has Died Thu, 29 22 2016 12:22:55 GMT 062257528abe8662b6eb1b8e314865879a9f87ac ABC News, by Jason Nathanson & Shane Lou Posted By: JoniTx- Thu, 29 22 2016 12:22:55 GMT Agnes Nixon, who created such soap operas as "All My Children" and "One Life to Live," has died, her daughter Cathy Chicos told ABC News. Chicos said the TV producer died on Thursday morning as a result of her battle with Parkinson’s disease and a recent stroke. She was 93. "One Life to Live" and "All My Children," both set in fictional Pennsylvania suburbs, enjoyed lengthy runs on ABC.

The Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA) will allow the families of 9/11 victims to seek restitution by suing Saudi Arabia, where the vast majority of the hijackers hailed from. It passed Congress unanimously, but Obama had expressed his intention to veto it, which he did on Friday. The Senate voted Wednesday 97'1 to override Obama’s veto, and the House voted likewise 348'77, effectively passing the bill into The Construct of the White Working'Class Zombies Thu, 29 21 2016 12:21:12 GMT f3537c1f73c0cd3a55da8094ff7af087cb4dc13c National Review, by Victor Davis Hanson Posted By: Tianne- Thu, 29 21 2016 12:21:12 GMT One of the strangest transformations in the era of Obama has been the overt and often gratuitous stereotyping of so'called white people — most often the white working classes who have become constructed into veritable unthinking and unrecognizable zombies. For progressives especially these were not the sympathetic old foundation of the Democratic party, who were once romanticized as the “people” pitted against the industrialists and the bluestockings, but rather have become monstrous caricatures of all sorts of incorrect race/class/and gender behavior and speech.

According to Americans for Limited Government’s senior editor Robert Romano, opposition to this Internet giveaway has united Republicans such as Senator Ted Cruz (R'TX) and presidential candidate Donald Trump. But questions remain as to whether or not the Republicans will unite sufficiently to insist language is included in a continuing resolution that will forbid the transfer of control. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R'KY) actually stripped out this language from the continuing resolution, and Union leaders struggle to turn members against Trump Wed, 28 58 2016 11:58:07 GMT 260b635cfce7d120446d35f2999f5140dd455497 Washington Examiner, by Sean Higgins Posted By: KarenJ1- Wed, 28 58 2016 11:58:07 GMT Every four years, the AFL'CIO labor federation engages in a quixotic mission: to attempt to dissuade many of its own members from voting for their first choice for president, the Republican candidate. Between one'quarter and one'third pull the lever for the GOP, anyway. The labor leaders´ efforts have taken an added urgency this year because the Republican nominee, Donald Trump, may have the strongest appeal in decades of any GOP candidate to the union rank'and'file.

Trump said in Miami this month that he would reverse President Barack Obama´s executive orders loosening the U.S. trade embargo on the island unless Cuba meets demands including "religious and political freedom for the Cuban people and the freeing of political prisoners." Gustavo Machin, Cuba´s deputy director of U.S. affairs, said Cuba would never be pressured into making internal reforms, and he said whoever is the next U.S. president should respect Cuba´s right to self'determination.

Kaepernick was not impressed with either candidate. “It was embarrassing to watch that these are our two candidates,” Kaepernick said. “Both are proven liars and it almost seems like they’re trying to debate who’s less racist.
