Trending: Science is Settled

The FBI asked the Department of Justice to open a case into the Clinton Family Foundation… but the DOJ declined.

BuzzFeed has proof that Twitter has been censoring conservatives and defending liberals.

Gold medal American gymnast Aly Raisman is earning praise for her tribute to the Israeli victims of the “Munich Massacre” from 40 years ago. While the IOC was too cowardly to pay their respect to those martyred by Muslim terrorists, Raisman bravely and loudly honored them.

The next president will have a very big mess to clean up as Obamacare continues its disastrous collapse.

Apparently the supposed “Russian hack” of the DNC was far more widespread than we first believed. As many as 100 Democrat Party officials may have been hacked, and the FBI has just begun to notify the political operatives on their list.

The RNC has officially warned Donald Trump that if he cannot begin to turn around his campaign, they will stop spending money to support him and instead attempt to salvage the “down ballot” races. Donald Trump responded by telling CNBC that he’ll either win by using the same tactics he’s already been using or he’ll enjoy a “very, very nice long vacation.”

Mr. Trump is once again reversing himself on the campaign trail. He had once warned of borrowing more money while we are so far in debt, but he now says that interest rates are so low that we have to be borrowing money.

“This is the time to borrow,” the Republican candidate said in an interview on CNBC Thursday morning. “Normally, you would say you want to reduce your debt, and I would like to reduce debt too,” Trump said, before explaining that “the problem is you have a military problem, you have an infrastructure problem — a tremendous infrastructure problem, and you have other problems. And also, the asset is your rates are so low.”

Mr. Trump once believed that he had Ohio “in the bag” but now his campaign team is “scrambling” to win over a section of SW Ohio.

The Washington Post reports some troubling statistics that show “men who love Trump are a lot less likely to vote than the women who love Clinton.”

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
