Donald Trump makes a plea for the black and poor vote at a campaign rally Friday night in Dimondale, Michigan [lcoated in Windsor Charter Township] following a tour of the devastation of flood-ravaged Louisiana earlier in the day.
Declaring "the war on our police must end and it must end now," Trump blamed decades of Democratic leadership for crime and poverty in major cities. He called Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton anti-police and held up as a model the tough-on-crime approach of former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who was one of the speakers who introduced Trump.
Dan Fedderly of the Wisconsin County Highway Association points to a decade of stagnant road funding from the state that's left locals with little choice. "We just simply need to address what has been a pending dilemma for many years and has got to the point where it is in crisis mode for many local units of government across the state," Fedderly said.
In this episode, Sassy Trump just can’t help admitting to the crowd that he lies to them.
The conservancy is spearheading efforts to get 10 of Wright’s masterpieces in seven states added to the World Heritage List of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. Best known to Pittsburghers is Fallingwater, built in 1936 for department store owner Edgar Kauffman Sr. The others represent other high points in Wright’s career and breakthroughs in design.
The World Heritage site listing was initiated in 1972 under an international treaty for natural site conservation and cultural site preservation. The list now includes more than 1,000 sites in 161 countries, including Stonehenge in England, the Taj Mahal in India, the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, and, in the U.S., Yellowstone National Park, the Statue of Liberty and Independence Hall, the only listing in Pennsylvania.
Former U.S. Senator Al Simpson makes a huge leap in logic. “This time she had eight opponents. She took them head-on. They threw some heavy artillery against her, and she handled it. Which is why she’ll be good.”
And what a bizarre view this window provides. The four-minute video — released under the open records law — was aimed at motivating employees at the Department of Corrections, which has struggled to fill all its job openings and keep them filled. It also provides a window into the thinking of the agency’s top officials in the weeks before a troubled juvenile prison was raided by law enforcement amid allegations of prisoner abuse.
The Journal Sentinel reported this May that the Department of Corrections had not checked Peterson’s work history when it hired her as education director in 2011. If it had, it would have found she resigned as an associate dean at Northcentral Technical College two weeks after she was demoted and had her pay cut by more than $14,000 “due to deficiencies in leadership communication.”
Joseph, a 35-year-old materials handler from Oregon making his first political bid, seemed like an odd fit for a Dem primary from the start. He was endorsed by Wisconsin Right to Life's PAC, supports letting people carry concealed weapons without the requirement of a government permit or training, and said he would not back Hillary Clinton for president this fall.
This poll is not included at RCP. Donald Trump only has a 53% favorable rating with Republicans in Texas. A majority of Republicans in the state who claimed to be supporting Trump (55%) said that their vote was really a vote against Hillary. Only 45% of Texas Republicans are voting in support of Trump.
Some of those communities, including parts of the Town of Berry, in northwest Dane County, are still stuck on dial-up-modem internet service, considered very slow by today’s standards.
Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump said Monday it's time to "chart a new course" in the battle against "radical Islamic terrorism," though much of what he proposed is similar to the course already set by President Obama.
At this point in time, 25 of 37 statements fact-checked by WaPo were awarded 4 Pinocchios. But, astonishingly, television hosts rarely challenge Trump when he makes a claim that already has been found to be false. For instance, Trump says he was against the 2003 invasion of Iraq, but research by BuzzFeed found that he did express support for an attack. He said the White House even sent a delegation to tell him to tone down his statements —and we found that also to be false.33 of 52 by July 15.
Immediately after the announcement, Liz Mair, a digital strategist for Walker's bid who was fired for tweeting negatively about Iowa, began spouting her thoughts about why Walker's campaign failed to attract enough money and momentum to keep it afloat.
