CIA Director Says Istanbul Attack Should Serve as Warning to U.S.


By Free Beacon, June 29, 2016 

CIA Director John Brennan said that the suicide bombings in Istanbul, Turkey bore the signs of ISIS and should serve as a warning to Americans that the terrorist group is aiming to carry out similar attacks in the U.S.

“I’d be surprised if [ISIS] is not trying to carry out that kind of attack in the United States,” Brennan told Yahoo News Tuesday evening.

Although no organization has claimed responsibility for the bombings at Istanbul Ataturk Airport Tuesday night, Brennan said the method of attack fits the profile of the terror group.

Three suicide attackers wearing explosive vests opened fire and blew themselves up in the airport’s arrival hall and a nearby parking lot, killing 41 people and wounding 239. The coordinated massacre echoed the ISIS bombings at Brussels Airport three months earlier.

By AP, June 30, 2016 

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin said in a legal proceeding that Clinton did not want the private emails that she mixed in with State Department emails on her private computer server to be accessible to "anybody," according to transcripts released Wednesday.

Abedin's comments provided new insight into the highly unusual decision by the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate to operate a private email server in her basement to conduct government business when she served as secretary of state.

Clinton’s Private E-Mail Use Said to Frustrate Top Aide Huma Abedin


By Bloomberg, June 29, 2016 

A top aide to Hillary Clinton said the former secretary of state’s use of a private e-mail server to conduct government business on at least one occasion got in the way of Clinton’s work and left the aide frustrated, according to a transcript of the aide’s deposition released Wednesday.

Huma Abedin, Clinton’s deputy chief of staff and now the vice chair of her presidential campaign, was being deposed about the context of a November 2010 e-mail she sent Clinton that they “should talk about putting you on state email or releasing your email address to the department so you are not going to spam.” Prompting the note, according to the e-mail chain released last week by the State Department under the Freedom of Information Act, was a missed scheduled phone call, one of a number of communications mishaps detailed in Clinton's 55,000-page e-mail record.

Al Qaeda Praises Orlando Attack, Calls for More


By Free Beacon, June 28, 2016 

President Obama said Thursday the Supreme Court’s decision in U.S. v. Texas dealt a disappointing blow to the country’s “broken” immigration system.

“For more than two decades now — everybody acknowledges — our immigration system has been broken,” Obama said. “And the fact that the Supreme Court wasn’t able to reach a decision today doesn’t just set the system back even further it takes us further from the country we aspire to be.”

By Madison, June 27, 2016

Almost eight years after electing a black president, vast majorities of blacks and Hispanics think President Barack Obama at least tried to make race relations in the United States better, according to a poll released Monday.

Republicans Aren't Alone In Worrying About A Convention Coup

By MSNBC, June 28, 2016

A delegate to the Republican National Convention filed a class action lawsuit in federal court late last week, “challenging a state law that binds delegates to support the primary winner at the nominating convention.” Around the same time, a group called “Delegates Unbound” launched a new television commercial, intended to rally support for Republican convention delegates to vote their conscience when they meet next month in Cleveland.

The point of this is plainly obvious: there are more than a few Republican delegates who still hope to deny Donald Trump the party’s presidential nomination, and they’re looking for any possible, last-gasp, Hail-Mary solutions in the hopes of preventing the inevitable.

For Marcia Clark, No Mystery Behind Renewed Interest in OJ Simpson Trial


By Chicago Tonight, June 28, 2016 

It's been more than 20 years since Los Angeles police arrested and charged O.J. Simpson with the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman. But his trial has been catapulted back into the cultural zeitgeist this year with the critically acclaimed FX miniseries "The People v. O.J. Simpson" and the ABC/ESPN documentary series “O.J.: Made in America.”

The reasons behind the renewed fascination are no mystery for Marcia Clark, the former L.A. prosecutor tasked with laying out the case against Simpson in 1995. In a one-on-one interview with host Phil Ponce, Clark says Simpson’s trial brought to the forefront questions about race and the criminal justice system that are still being raised today, with police shootings of young black men like Michael Brown and Laquan McDonald that have grabbed national headlines.

CIA And Saudi Weapons For Syrian Rebels Fueled Black Market Arms Trafficking, Report Says


By salon, June 28, 2016 
Millions of dollars worth of weapons the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency and Saudi Arabia sent to Syrian rebels have been “systematically” stolen and sold to arms traffickers on the black market, according to an explosive joint investigation by The New York Times and Al Jazeera.

U.S. and Jordanian investigators do not know where most of the arms went, reviving fears that the deadly military-grade black market weapons could have ended up in the hands of criminal networks and extremist groups outside the country.

Actress Kelly McGillis Receives Concealed Carry Permit Within Days


By WLOS, June 28, 2016 

In the past, News 13 has reported on a backlog for concealed carry permits. One gun dealer said it can take as long as six months for some people to receive theirs.

McGillis was able to get her permit so quickly because North Carolina law gives sheriffs the right to issue them in an emergency situation.

Suspect Laurence Dorn and alleged victim McGillis sat in the courtroom just feet from each other Tuesday morning. At the time, both declined to comment.

By Gazette, June 28, 2016 

Lawyers for a Schriever Air Force Base colonel argued Monday that a half-dozen adultery charges against him should be thrown out because the military's law banning extramarital sex discriminates against heterosexuals.

Col. Eugene Marcus Caughey is headed for an August court-martial on charges of rape, assault, taking a dirty selfie and the adultery counts. He was in court Monday for a formal reading of the charges and to argue pretrial motions.

Survey Finds Excess Health Problems In Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals


By Yahoo, June 28, 2016 

Gay, lesbian and bisexual individuals reported more health problems than straight men and women, in a large U.S. survey.

For the first time since its launch in 1957, the National Health Interview Survey in 2013 and 2014 included a question about sexual orientation.

With nearly 69,000 participants, the survey revealed that lesbian, gay and bisexual adults "were more likely to report impaired physical and mental health, heavy alcohol consumption, and heavy cigarette use, potentially due to the stressors that (they) experience as a result of interpersonal and structural discrimination," researchers wrote online June 28 in JAMA Internal Medicine.

TV Ratings: Fox News Having Best Year Ever So Far; Tops Basic Cable This Quarter


By Dead Line, June 28, 2016 

Fox News Channel first hit the air on October 7, 1996, and this is looking like it might be the best birthday year yet for the cable news network.
 
With unprecedented interest in Presidential politics pumping up the numbers by double digits, the nearly 20-year old Fox News is currently in the No. 1 primetime spot for all of cable with 2.2 million viewers. For its most-watched year ever so far, that’s a jump from the No. 5 spot it held at this point in 2015. Now, all cable news nets see a rise in election years, but for Fox News the result is a little sweeter. The Roger Ailes-run channel is second in all of cable primetime for Q2 2016 behind the NBA playoffs-fueled TNT. The latter averaged 2.05 million viewers to FNC’s 1.97 million for the quarter.
