July 26, 2016 by legitgov

Hundreds of leads on possible terrorists among refugees - German police | 26 July 2016 | Germany's Federal Criminal Police says hundreds of refugees in the country might be linked to terrorism.

According to the outlet, the criminal police have 410 leads on possible terrorists among asylum seekers in Germany, with investigations launched in 60 cases.

Democrats Nominate Hillary Clinton, Despite Sharp Divisions | 26 July 2016 | Democrats formally nominated Hillary Clinton for president on Tuesday, looking to move beyond the lingering anger that has brought protests and dissension to their convention as they unite behind the first female candidate to represent a major American political party. Mrs. Clinton officially became the party's standard-bearer in a roll-call vote of delegates on the floor of the convention. During the voting, Senator Bernie Sanders, who rallied millions of voters to his side in his battle against Mrs. Clinton, could be seen tearing up with his wife, Jane, sitting by his side. Despite the show of unity, there were signs on Tuesday that the discord that marked the first two days of the convention could persist.

Trump: Claim That Russia Hacked DNC to Help Him Is a 'Joke'

July 25, 2016 by legitgov

Trump: Claim That Russia Hacked DNC to Help Him Is a 'Joke' | 25 July 2016 | Donald Trump said Monday that any suggestion the Russians hacked and leaked Democratic Party emails on his behalf is a "joke." The timing of the embarrassing leak on the eve of the Democratic National Convention put fresh attention on relations between Trump and Russian president Vladimir Putin, who have praised each other, and on close ties between key members of Trump's inner circle and Russian businesses and officials. Hillary Clinton's campaign manager alleged over the weekend that the leak was designed to help Trump after his campaign operatives [thankfully] pushed changes to the Republican convention platform "to make it more pro-Russian" - reportedly removing language in support of sanctions for Russia and new weapons for [the Nazis running] Ukraine. In a tweet, Trump scoffed at the notion, writing, "The new joke in town is that Russia leaked the disastrous DNC e-mails, which should never have been written (stupid), because Putin likes me."

Others at the meeting cheered and clapped for Wasserman Schultz, who is stepping down over the email controversy.

It was threatening a string of small communities near Santa Clarita, just outside the Angeles National Forest, the Los Angeles county sheriff's department said.

They've been under seal for years, as AE92 in the USS Cole case and as AE52 in the 9/11 case.

The parade set off from City Hall led by a banner proclaiming, "Help End Establishment Politics, Vote No on Hillary." Despite 97-degree heat, more than 1,000 people from as far as Seattle and Florida participated in the first of what are expected to be many rallies in support of Mr. Sanders, a Vermont senator. It was far larger than any of the protest marches last week in Cleveland during the Republican National Convention, though there were no signs of confrontations early on between demonstrators and either supporters of Donald J. Trump or the police, who maintained a low-key, even casual presence.
