Just Days Before The Republican National Convention is expected to formally nominate him for president, Donald Trump has taken his largest lead yet over Hillary Clinton. The latest Rasmussen Reports weekly White House Watch survey of Likely U.S. Voters finds Trump with 44% support to Clinton’s 37%. Thirteen percent (13%) favor some other candidate, and six percent (6%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.) This is the third week in a row that Trump has held the lead, although last week he was ahead by a statistically insignificant 42% to 40%. This week’s findings represent Trump’s highest level of support in surveys since last October and show Clinton continuing to lose ground.

AAAARC Chairman Rev Clyde Bowen: There has been a rash of shootings and violence against police officers. I'm going to tell you the reasons. Some you know, some you suspect and some you will find controversial and hard to believe. I have "Cred" & credentials to state my truths. Raised in a section of Boston, I was trained in local history. I went to the same school as Ben Franklin, one of the four signers of the Declaration. My dad was an abuser, me a violent street gang thug. My section of Roxbury was mean, drugs, violence, and rage. I was raised with MalcolmX & Louie Farakhan, preachers of a certain Black "reality". Then and now. Crack a book, I did. I was also a combat military police officer for 10 yrs. I have also studied this race thing in America for over 60 years! Black Belief: White Lives Matter! When this country was formed, during and after slavery, up till now a Democrat driven agenda has broken Black's self-esteem, pride and for the future. Like Trump says - talk, talk, talk. Obama talk, talking heads, SOS-new day. Black on Black crime. Oh, well, Blacks are "not good enough" right? Crying, "acting out". Somebody's gonna get a whipping. After eight cops dead, now law & order. Complicated! Black's are desperate for Republican leadership not scorn, they get that in the mirror. Blacks won't/can't directly tell you. Denial is not just a river in Egypt. I tell you their/our problem. Me, I'm reborn, I'm an American. You?

Lyle J. Rapacki, Ph.D. - Sentinel Intelligence Services, LLC: As I send this message, I am fully aware sadness prevails across our country upon the death of three Servant Heroes gunned-down in Baton Rouge, Louisiana earlier today.  Another Servant Hero who wore a badge also died today in Milwaukee.  Heroes each…servants without a doubt.  In the days to come many words will be shared about their lives, and about their service to their communities and fellow citizens.  These memorials will be filled with words and songs and more words giving honor to those who ran toward gun fire, not away like so many people, but towards the danger and the unknowing.  Bag pipes and muffled drums most likely will sound notes that will touch you deep inside and pervade your spirit hopefully so you will never forget the sacrifice they made, and would make again today if they could.  Something else died today…actually has been dying over the past eight or so years; the ability to laugh and joke and laugh some more without malice.  Americans historically have laughed.  We seem to be forgetting how to anymore.  So I decided to take a risk, to go against theon current, to send a commentary dealing with laughter.  Cops laugh.  They laugh more than most citizens know, and maybe, in part, because they witness so much that is not funny, not laughable.  Cops laugh…and in some squads and stations, they are known to play a joke or two on their fellow officers but in a good-natured sort of way…because cops laugh, they value the sound, they tuck away the smile to draw upon at times when there are no sounds of laughter only the sounds of the bag pipes and muffled drums.  The Servant Heroes we honor today would understand, they would encourage you to find again the ability to laugh.  We need this quickly fading gift in our country maybe even more at this time then last year.
