The half-brother of U.S. President Barack Obama has revealed that he is planning on voting for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, and said that he supports Trump's proposed plan for a temporary ban on Muslims coming to America.
BBC News reported that Malik Obama, who is a Muslim Kenyan with U.S. citizenship, believes that Trump "comes across as a straightforward guy."
"He appeals to me and also I think that he is down to earth and he speaks from the heart and he is not trying to be politically correct. He's just straight-forward," the man said. more >>
Former President Bill Clinton painted his wife, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, as the "best darn change-maker I have ever known" and the only "real" choice for president Tuesday night at the Democratic National Convention.
In perhaps the longest speech yet of the convention being held at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Clinton ignited passionate support for his wife among delegates when he recalled her experience as a public servant who spent much of her career working to help the disenfranchised and promoting social justice — a concept she was introduced to, he said, by her Methodist youth minister during the early stages of her career.
And all the while as she did much of this work she was also juggling motherhood and marriage. more >>

The NBA free agency period this year was filled with controversies and surprises. Now that it is on its way of cooling down, early predictions about the 2016-17 Western and Eastern Conference playoffs started to surface.
A Rematch Between Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors?
Broderick Turner of Los Angeles Times projected that the Warriors will once again rule the Western Conference playoffs because of its 73-9 record last season. Aside from the Warriors' impressive performance, the franchise has also added strong players to its solid roster. Last season's MVP, Stephen Curry, and three-point bomber, Klay Thompson, are expected to elevate the Warriors' performance with newly signed teammates Kevin Durant, Damian Jones, ZaZa Pachulia, David West and Patrick McCaw. more >>
I don't know about you, but the constant barrage of negativity and gloomy reports in the news tends to beat me down. Polls show only a paltry 21% of American voters believe we're headed in the right direction.
Terrorism, polarization, deception, economic stagnation, political corruption, racial agitation and ongoing moral deterioration are widespread and escalating. Let's be honest, things are not getting better no matter what our President tells us.
Now don't check out just yet. There is some good news! more >>
C.S. Lewis once wrote: "Every time you make a choice you are turning the central part of you … into something a little different from what it was before. And taking your life as a whole … you are slowly turning this central thing either into a heavenly creature or into a hellish creature: either into a creature that is in harmony with God, and with other creatures, and with itself, or else into one that is in a state of war and hatred with God, and with its fellow creatures, and with itself."
Last night when I hit the "send" button on my computer, and sent my column thousands of miles away to my editor, the "central part of me" turned a little in the wrong direction, because I chose to send a column which was neither fair nor balanced.
And if I'd left it that way, that small choice would've helped "turn that central part of me" into "something a little different from what it was before," as Lewis wrote. So I did the right thing and asked my editor to grant me some time to make things right. more >>
