America needs regime change — not in the essential form of Constitutional government, but departure from the contemporary regime of power that dominates American politics.
Rather than violent overthrow or foreign invasion, America needs regime change from within as specified by the Declaration of Independence: "Whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends (i.e., the "unalienable Rights" of "Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness") it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government."
The regime of power that has dominated American politics for decades is as old as the presidency of Republican Theodore Roosevelt and as recent as that of Democrat Barack Obama. A Hillary Clinton presidency would most certainly continue it. more >>
Seven in 10 white evangelicals have their minds "made up" in support of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, a new CNN/ORC International poll released Monday morning shows.
The poll also shows Trump has a small lead over presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
The day after appearing alongside Hillary Clinton as her running mate for the first time, Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine was in his Richmond Catholic church Sunday to seek prayers and also sang the Communion hymn. Kaine spoke to journalists after the service about his involvement in the mostly black church.
"You saw what a special community that is," Kaine, who was with his wife, Virginia Secretary of Education Anne Holton, at St. Elizabeth Catholic Church on Sunday, told reporters, according to ABC News. "We needed some prayers today and we got some prayers and we got support and it really feels good."
The former Virginia governor and Anne got married at the same church in November 1984. more >>
Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, the vice-presidential pick of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, has been accused of supporting abortion rights by pro-life groups despite his expressed Roman Catholic faith and church attendance.
National Right to Life president Carol Tobias said that Kaine has voted against the pro-life position throughout his political career, including his recent co-sponsorship of the "Women's Health Protection Act" (S.217), which takes down state limitations on abortions.
"Like Hillary Clinton, Sen. Tim Kaine supports the current policy of abortion on demand," Tobias said. more >>
Secretary of State John Kerry has insisted that although some people have a hard time believing it, dangerous chemicals found in refrigerators and air conditioners pose as big of a threat as the Islamic State terror group to the world.
"Yesterday, I met in Washington with 45 nations — defense ministers and foreign ministers — as we were working together on the challenge of [the Islamic State], and terrorism," Kerry said on Friday during climate deal negotiations in Vienna, according to The Washington Examiner.
"It's hard for some people to grasp it, but what we — you — are doing here right now is of equal importance because it has the ability to literally save life on the planet itself." more >>
A leaked email shows that Democratic National Committee CFO Brad Marshall told DNC's Communications Director Luis Miranda and others in May that the party should "get someone to ask" about Bernie Sanders' religious beliefs to undermine his presidential campaign. Sanders has responded by stating he's "not an atheist."
"First of all, I am not an atheist," Sanders said on CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday, responding to Marshall's leaked email released by Wikileaks Friday.
"… Can we get someone to ask his belief. Does he believe in a God," reads the email, according to The Intercept. "He had skated on saying he has a Jewish heritage. I think I read he is an atheist. This could make several points difference with my peeps. My Southern Baptist peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and an atheist," added the email. more >>
