GOP frontrunner Donald Trump took up for the Tea Party to a Left-leaning crowd at the No Labels Convention in New Hampshire Monday morning. “I love the Tea Party,” Trump responded when an audience member asked about his thoughts on the Tea Party and the House Freedom Caucus, as well as the possibility of a government shutdown over defunding Planned Parenthood. “These are people in all fairness, these are people that love this country. They do love this country and they want the country to be great,” Trump defended. “They don’t want Planned Parenthood funded… I understand that.” The crowd booed, but Trump didn’t budge. He said he agreed with the Tea Party.

Expanding the search for oil is necessary to pay for the damage caused by climate change, the Governor of Alaska has told the BBC. The state is suffering significant climate impacts from rising seas forcing the relocation of remote villages. Governor Bill Walker says that coping with these changes is hugely expensive. He wants to “urgently” drill in the protected lands of the Arctic National Wilderness Refuge to fund them. Alaska has been severely hit by the dramatic drop in the price of oil over the past two years.
Peter Sutherland (shown), the United Nations special representative of the secretary-general for international migration, is hopping from one pulpit to the next, preaching the message that the refugee tsunami proves national sovereignty is an “illusion,” a mere shibboleth” that must be done away with. Moreover, says Sutherland, the United States and the European Union “have not merely a moral but a legal obligation to protect refugees.”
The events unfolding in Syria have led professional political observers to one grievous conclusion, that the American political elite “is not just supporting terrorists but creating these groups as well, not just recently but, as we will show, 16 years before 9/11,” US Marine combat veteran of the Vietnam War and senior editor of Veterans Today Gordon Duff notes. And these are not some “bizarre conspiracy theories.” “The world increasingly recognizes that America has lost her mind, at least the majority of public figures quoted in the mainstream media. Hillary Clinton wants a no-fly zone over Syria with US jets shooting down Russian planes. Zbigniew Brzezinski wants the US to “disarm” the Russian navy and “arrest” Russian forces in Syria for “resisting” America’s plans for conquest,” Duff emphasized in his article for New Eastern Outlook.

“They have a whole race of indigenous people on reservations, concentration camps. They’re out there killing the indigenous people spiritually,” she said. The woman followed a speech from Chief Ernie Longwalker of the Red Wind Nation who seemingly was unhappy about his time on stage being cut short. “They’re telling me to stop,” he said. “We’ve given you 500 years. You only give us about five minutes.” Thousands of black people and other minorities descended on the nation’s capital with banners and flags for the “Justice or Else!” rally — the 20th anniversary of the first Million Man March. Watch the Native American woman’s speech and rally cry here.
Ben Carson refuses to be muzzled. Republican presidential hopeful Carson told The Hill in a Monday interview that he has no intention of reining in his rhetoric, despite having attracted weeks of sensational headlines for remarks on everything from guns to religion to the Holocaust. “I want people to see me as an honest person, a person who is actually willing to express what they believe” Carson said. “The way I look at it, if people don’t like that, I’d rather not be in office. I don’t want to be in office under false pretenses, just saying things people want to hear so I can get elected.”
Terminal 5 was beset with hundreds of would-be vampires Friday night for a classic Blood Rave—inspired by Wesley Snipes’ 1998 film Blade.

“It was a big surprise to find that the fault scarps don’t have random orientations,” Watters said. Instead, “there is a pattern in the orientations of the thousands of faults, and it suggests something else is influencing their formation, something that’s also acting on a global scale,” Watters said in a statement. “That something is the Earth’s gravitational pull.”

WASHINGTON — Hillary Clinton’s biggest opponent Tuesday night in the Democrats’ first presidential debate of the season may well be … Hillary Clinton. Former Secretary Clinton’s challenge isn’t her declining lead against her top adversaries for the Democratic nomination – namely, Bernie Sanders and the as-yet unannounced Joe Biden. She’s still the odds-on favorite to win her party’s nomination, more so if Vice President Biden doesn’t run.
A shift in the weather pattern across North America may bring the coolest air mass so far this fall to parts of the Midwest and East. It looks like the cooler pattern will develop from the upper-Mississippi Valley to the Great Lakes, Ohio Valley and parts of the Northeast by this weekend. In fact, some locations may see their frost and/or freeze of the season. A coating of snow is also not out of the question for the higher elevations of the interior Northeast depending on the timing of the cool air and how much moisture is available.
California’s Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a compelled speech plan into law that orders faith-based organizations to refer women to abortionists – even though the same idea was tried earlier in New York – and failed. Brown’s signature on AB 775 just days ago already has triggered a series of lawsuits, because it forces religious pregnancy clinics to tell women and girls that California has public programs to provide immediate – and free or low-cost – abortions. Officials with the Pacific Justice Institute announced on Monday the filing of lawsuits in both southern and northern California on behalf of clinics.
