Email-Gate Blowback: Trump Takes Lead Over Clinton In 3 Key Swing States

With the majority of Americans disapproving of FBI Director Comey's (and implicitly Loretta Lynch's) decision to let Hillary off, it is perhaps not surprising that in the first major poll following the email-gate debacle, Donald Trump has taken the lead in three key swing states and narrowed Clinton's lead overall to just 3 points.

A very recently published Harvard study on racial bias in police use of force finds that, as the mainstream narrative proffers, black men and women are treated differently in the hands of law enforcement. However, in what the (African-American) author of the study calls "the most surprising result of my career," when it comes to the most lethal form of force - police shootings - the study finds no racial bias, contradicting the mental image of police shootings that many Americans hold.

The Curse Of Socialist Highways - How Government Ruins July 4th Travel

Unfortunately the travel before and after the 4th of July is a different story, with it widely considered one of the worst travel days of the year. While the desire to take advantage of the holiday to enjoy friends and family is a natural product of humans being inherently social creatures, the degree to which this congestion leads to headache and misery rests solely with the institution responsible for them during the rest of the year – the government.

During a discussion at the Aspen Ideas Festival in Colorado, Singer told CNBC that "the most impactful of the economic policies that I recall him coming out for are these anti-trade policies," Singer said "And I think if he actually stuck to those policies and gets elected president, it's close to a guarantee of a global depression, widespread global depression."

Hillary Superpac Has Taken $200,000 In Banned Donations

These past few weeks have been quite interesting for Hillary Clinton. We learned that Clinton omitted one key email from the State Department, that Hillary's official State Department calendar is missing a lot of entries, and we were reminded that it can be quite lucrative to be a friend of Hillary.

Said otherwise, the super-PAC is engaged in a pay-to-play deal.
