Don’t be fooled, Democrats/the press (but I repeat myself) don’t care about government spending UNLESS it is spending on investigations in to Hillary Clinton…
They are with her.
Mike Tyson is a rapist.
Mike Tyson is a friend of Donald Trump.
Trump has boasted in the past about his endorsement by Tyson, who has re-emerged in popular culture in recent years with roles in popular movies like “Hangover” and the publishing of a well-received memoir.
“Mike Tyson endorsed me, I love it,” Trump said in April in Indiana. “You know, all the tough guys endorse me. I like that.”
Following the Indiana rally, Trump was criticized for touting the endorsement of the former boxer, who had served three years in prison after being convicted in the state for raping a beauty pageant contestant.
No way this happens.
This will be a big deal.
The media will ignore that they, until now, love Tyson too.
Then there is this…
His campaign is putting the finishing touches on a policy memo that would change his proposed ban on Muslim immigration to the United States. Instead of focusing the ban on Muslims, Trump would ban immigrants coming from countries with known terrorism links, training and equipment.Meanwhile, he’s eased off his hardline language calling for deporting all undocumented immigrants living in the U.S.
Had you known this, would it have mattered?
She is terrible and they know it.
Hillary Clinton holds a sizable lead over Donald Trump in national polls, and is the clear front-runner for the presidency. But despite the GOP’s Trump disruption, the battle for the Senate is shaping up to be much more competitive, with Republicans holding a credible chance to maintain their majority even if they lose the White House.
Right now, it’s looking like Democrats will net between three and five Senate seats—on the cutting edge of winning back the majority or falling just short. They need a net gain of at least four seats if Clinton wins the presidency. If she picks a running mate who’s a Democratic senator from a state with a GOP governor, she’d need to win five Senate seats for her party to regain control of the upper chamber.
Three recent developments are contributing to the GOP’s competitive standing in the battle for the Senate. Most of the key battlegrounds are in the Rust Belt, where Trump’s populist message is resonating to a greater degree than in more diverse states. Democratic candidates such as Ohio’s Ted Strickland and Pennsylvania’s Katie McGinty will have to demonstrate their working-class bona fides as much as Republicans will need to prove they can win over both Trump diehards and anti-Trump Republicans. Neither task is easy. But Democrats’ deepening rifts with blue-collar voters will be magnified in these states’ manufacturing-heavy hubs.
The second development was Sen. Marco Rubio’s decision to run for reelection in Florida. Before Rubio’s abrupt change of heart, the race was slipping away from Republicans. None of the GOP candidates looked like they had the political profile or fundraising capability to compete in an expensive, diverse state with Trump at the top of the ticket. But Rubio’s candidacy—assuming he wins the GOP nomination against businessman Carlos Beruff—changes the dynamic. If Rubio were running against a brand-name Democrat, the race would still be a pure toss-up. But Democrats will either be nominating a 33-year-old congressman who falsified parts of his resume (Patrick Murphy) or a progressive pugilist who isloathed by Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (Alan Grayson). The race is now Rubio’s to lose.
The third encouraging sign for Republican senators is that so far, Trump’s toxicity hasn’t rubbed off on them. This month’s NBC/Wall Street Journal poll shows Republicans and Democrats tied on the congressional generic ballot at 46 percent—with Republicans gaining ground in the past month even as Trump’s campaign lost altitude. Swing-state polls show most of the pivotal races statistically tied, with targeted GOP senators holding solid favorability ratings. While the impact of Trump’s nomination on down-ballot Republicans remains uncertain, it now looks like Republican senators will be able to triangulate from Trump without serious consequences. They would benefit from the working-class turnout that Trump brings to the table, while relying on dependable Republicans to show up to back GOP Senate candidates.
This is why a risk-averse Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell doesn’t want to deny Trump the nomination at the convention. He worries that if the party splits, the bottom could fall out for Senate Republicans.
Liberals around the world show disdain for the people… again…
DOJ fighting another school district in Alabama, out of control…
The charges against an elderly Scottsboro man accused of roughly “disciplining” his grandchildren in McDonald’s will be dropped if he can stay out of trouble for the next year.
A clerk in the Scottsboro Municipal Court confirmed to AL.com that the two domestic violence charges against 73-year-old James Chapman on Monday were continued for a year. If Chapman does not have any more arrests in that time, the charges will be dismissed.
Chapman made national headlines last month when he was arrested after disciplining his adopted grandchildren inside the fast food restaurant. Another patron called police and investigators said that multiple eyewitnesses claimed the discipline was excessive.
Chapman’s lawyer argued that parents and grandparents have the right to discipline their children.
The kids were not taken to the hospital for treatment after the incident.
The absolute worst place to live in the United States is Miami, Florida.
That’s what a recent ranking by 24/7 Wall Street found, citing Miami’s high housing costs, low median household income, high poverty rate and incidents of violent crime. Those were among the factors examined by the website as it ranked the 50 worst places to live in the U.S. You can see the complete methodology here.
Alabama didn’t escape unscathed. Birmingham, the state’s largest city, landed at number six on the list of worst places to live. Here’s why:
“Birmingham’s median home value of $84,400 is roughly $100,000 less than the national median home value. Low home values are often indicative of a poor population and a weak economy, and indeed, many area residents are struggling financially. The typical Birmingham household earns only $30,043 a year, and the city’s poverty rate of 30.5 percent is nearly double the national poverty rate.
