Article by WN.Com Correspondent Dallas Darling Political experts say polls don’t lie, but liars poll. Unless it’s your own internal pollsters that show you are losing voters in swing states and there’s little you can do lest you change course. But this is only one reason why President Donald Trump attacked the four congresswomen known as “The Squad,” belittling their race, sex, age and politics. His pollsters discovered something else. Supporters still had a fixated preoccupation with their

Article by WN.Com Correspondent Dallas Darling If you don’t know who right-wing computer scientist and hedge-fund billionaire Robert Mercer is, you should. Not only was he more instrumental in swinging the 2016 election for Donald Trump than Russia’s Internet Research Agency and Russian trolls, but he plans to do the same in 2020. In addition to funding more voter suppression laws and manipulating search engine algorithms, he knows just how vulnerable electronic voting machines are. Meanwhile,

CHICAGO (AP) - This time, the Minnesota Twins bashed their way to a runaway win. The slumping Chicago White Sox were no match for Nelson Cruz and company. Cruz hit three of Minnesota's five homers and finished with five RBIs, helping the AL Central leaders beat the White Sox 10-3 on Thursday night.

Police said the victim and the suspect had "known each other previously" and that they had evidence the event was not a hate crime as some had believed but did not name the suspect.

The European Commission referred Hungary to the Court of Justice on Thursday over "legislation that criminalizes activities in support of asylum applications and further restricts the right to request asylum," according to Politico Europe.

The EU first began an "infringement procedure" against Hungary over its increasingly hostile asylum laws in December 2015, but

BEIRUT - In a bustling district of the Lebanese capital, a government inspector issues a fine to the manager of a popular restaurant for hiring 17 Syrian refugees without work permits. In a country brimming with foreign workers, the labour ministry is clamping down on businesses employing foreigners without the required papers. But activists have condemned the crackdown, saying it is a pretext to pressure Syrian refugees to return to their war-torn homeland. After a long argument with the

SpaceX's Starhopper – a prototype of the rocket it hopes will one day fly around the solar system – had a failed launch test that ended with it being surrounded by flames.

But as the test began, the rocket failed…

Previous Next Brits now have, just like America, a polarizing figure as their political leader. The choice of Boris Johnson by just over 92,000 Conservative Party members surprised nobody. Since Theresa May was forced out in a bloodless coup, the Etonian has always been in the lead due to the simple reason there wasn't really a serious challenger. Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, who ran a distant second, may be deemed more capable, but his character is as dull as watching wet paint dry…

After spending Wednesday morning testifying in front of the House Judiciary Committee to discuss the allegations of obstruction of justice by President Donald Trump, former special counsel Robert Mueller spent the afternoon discussing Russian efforts to meddle in the 2016 presidential election with the House Intelligence Committee, according to The Guardian. Throughout the day, Mueller was fairly tight-lipped for questions from both Democrats and Republicans. But he did tell Rep. Sean Maloney

Former special counsel Robert Mueller was a man of few words on Wednesday before the House Judiciary Committee's hearing, but he did push back against President Donald Trump's claims of his probe as a "witch hunt," according to USA Today. “The president was not exculpated for the acts that he allegedly committed,” Mueller said before adding Trump could face charges over that after he leaves office. “We did not address ‘collusion,’ which is not a legal term,” Mueller said. “Rather, we focused on

China said the investigation into former military official Qian Weiping was not related to espionage claims as initially reported by a Hong Kong-based newspaper on Wednesday, but is for suspected discipline violations and duty-related crimes, according to The South China Morning Post.

Former special counsel Robert Mueller was blunt but straightforward in many of his answers to the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday as Republicans attempted to damage the credibility of his report, according to Yahoo News. During his opening remarks, Mueller said the investigation he oversaw uncovered a "serious" threat of Russian election interference. "This deserves the attention of every American," Mueller said of the ongoing interference attempts to influence American elections. But

By Emmarie Huetteman | Kaiser Health News When Washington returned from its winter holiday break in January, it seemed everyone was talking about lowering drug prices. Energized by a new class of freshmen and a few weeks away from the office, members of Congress were ready to wag their fingers at drug company executives and pitch their fixes. President Donald Trump had unveiled some of his solutions to a problem he said was a top priority, and more would follow. Now it’s July…

Article by WN.Com Correspondent Dallas Darling Political scientists agree there are two things authoritarians must do to erode democracy and gain power. The first is develop a culture of fear. The second, attack solemn and independent institutions. Consequently, some warn this is exactly what Donald Trump is doing. Backed by Fox News and talk radio, he’s convinced millions of followers of a Deep State plot to overthrow him and, in the words of Fox News’ Sean Hannity, who repeatedly reminds his

British Airways said a planned pilot strike for later this summer could cost the airline up to $50 million a day on Tuesday, in a lawsuit that was dismissed after trying to halt the walkout, according to The Independent.

BALPA, the pilots' union, can call strike dates within two weeks' notice, but said…

Many animals are unable to adapt to the speed of climate change, which is posing a threat to common species such as deer, magpies, and sparrows. Alexandre Courtiol and Stephanie Kramer-Schadt supervised the work which was conducted across a number of researchers and scientists who said
