"(Hillary Clinton) has taken these very hawkish positions both before she ran for president and then as secretary of state. She adopted many of the more aggressive positions, often going against President Obama, who was more reluctant to expand or to continue some of these military adventures."

– Robert Parry, author, investigative journalist and editor of Consortium News, on how Hillary Clinton has won the support of many key neocons, some of whom have abandoned the Republican party

Ahead in the Polls, Hillary Clinton Embraces GOP Neocon War Hawks

MP3 Interview with Robert Parry, author, investigative journalist and editor of Consortium News, conducted by Scott Harris

neocon

After weeks of multiple gaffes and a continuing string of offensive statements, Donald Trump is fading in public opinion polls. Hillary Clinton, despite her own controversies, has been the beneficiary, with voter surveys finding that she's widening her lead in key battleground states and among many demographic groups. Trump's provocative positions have also had the effect of triggering disaffection among many Republicans. While a growing number of big-name Republicans have refused to support Trump, many have also taken the additional step of pledging their support to Clinton.  Story continues

West Virginia Asks for Health Study to Determine Health Impact of Mountaintop Coal Mining

MP3 Interview with Michael Hendryx, professor, School of Public Health, at Indiana University, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

coalmining

It was recently announced that the National Academy of Sciences will undertake a study of the health impacts of surface coal mining in West Virginia, with a focus on mountaintop removal, in which the tops of mountain ridges are blasted off to extract the coal seams beneath. Residents of communities near mountaintop removal mining sites have long complained about air and water pollution, resulting in what they say are severe health impacts such as increased risk of cancer, birth defects and premature death. Area citizens have been organizing support for a federal law called the Appalachia Community Health Emergency Act, or ACHE Act, which would end the permitting of new mountaintop removal sites until thorough health studies could be conducted to provide evidence that the mining practice doesn't threaten public health.  Story continues

On Aug. 11, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and Florida GOP Sen. Marco Rubio attended an event sponsored by the group, American Renewal Project, that featured some of the nation's most extreme anti-gay conservative Christian activists. The event titled, "Rediscovering God in America," took place in Orlando, Florida on the eve of the second month anniversary of the Pulse LGBT nightclub massacre, where a lone gunman shot and killed 49 people and wounded 53 others.  Story continues
