Donald Trump ahead in one new national poll and closing in on Clinton in another
Now that the Republicans have their nominee, but the Democratic race presses on, polls are showing a very tight race in November between Donald Trump and likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
Moody’s Analytics predicts Clinton will win in the fall, but of the two major national polls that dropped today she’s behind in one of them and ahead of Trump, but within the poll’s margin of error, in the other survey.
The FBI’s secret biometrics database
The Department of Justice has come up with a proposal to exempt the biometric database from public disclosure.

There’s an explanation for Islamic terrorism that’s never proffered: Insanity and Stupidity

The Gathering Storm In Philadelphia
The media narrative for the last six months has been about how the Republican convention in Cleveland was going to be a fight, a mess, a second “mistake by the lake.” Journalists reveled in the prospect of a GOP floor fight and protests in the streets.

Mexican Officials Take Steps to Counter ‘the Trump Emergency’
Mr. Fox said in a telephone interview from his home in Guanajuato State that he was motivated to attack Mr. Trump by what he called “pure love for that great nation, the United States.”

Clinton to Trayvon Martin Foundation: Trump’s ‘dangerous’ pro-gun policies ‘way out there’

Isis official calls for ‘lone wolf’ attacks in US and Europe during Ramadan
Abu Mohammed al-Adnani, a close aide and a possible successor to leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, said lone wolf attacks in the US and Europe were “dearer to us than the biggest action by us” in Iraq and Syria.
“Ramadan, the month of conquest and jihad,” Adnani said. “Get prepared, be ready … to make it a month of calamity everywhere for the non-believers … especially for the fighters and supporters of the caliphate in Europe and America.
Smart TVs with Webcams Vulnerable to Online Peeping Toms
…when you introduce the Internet into an area that has previously been offline, you make that item vulnerable to outside attacks.

One Million U.K. Child Victims of Muslim Rape Gangs?
In a gut-wrenching development, it may turn out that last year’s report detailing a decade-and-a-half of sexual exploitation inflicted on at least 1,400 children from Rotherham, England—and the PC-driven effort to cover it up–may represent the proverbial tip of the iceberg. The city’s Labor MP Sarah Champion believes as many as one million children may have been victimized, describing it as a “national disaster” that requires the establishment of a task force to deal with the “horror.”
‘We are like a bomb’: food riots show Venezuela crisis has gone beyond politics
Perhaps it was not surprising that the mood outside the supermarket quickly turned ugly: frustration turned to despair, anger to violence. Before long, the incident on Tuesday had escalated.
The unrest soon spread throughout this city of 200,000 just outside the capital, Caracas. Protesters shouted “We want food” as they blocked intersections with burning tyres and clashed with security forces.

Obama Braces for Donald Trump Questions From World Leaders
Officially, the top world leaders who gather Thursday at the Group of 7 summit meeting will talk about shared concerns, like global trade or the Islamic State. But their private discussions are likely to cover a topic that is not on the agenda: Donald J. Trump.
Mr. Obama’s Japanese hosts are particularly alarmed at the prospect of a Trump presidency because the real estate developer has been bashing Japan for decades. Mr. Trump’s criticisms have a distinctly 1980s flavor, when Japanese cars were flooding American markets and Japanese businesses were buying premier American properties like Rockefeller Center in New York.
“You have to see the trade imbalance between Japan and the United States — it’s unbelievable,” Mr. Trump said in a recent interview. “They sell to us, and we practically give them back nothing by comparison.”
