The percentage of adults who believe God played a role in creating the first humans reached a 40-year low in Gallup polling released Monday.

Among those responding to the polling company’s latest survey, 37% said God alone created human beings fully evolved within the past 10,000 years. That’s a new low since Gallup first surveyed the issue in 1982, down 1 percentage point from 2017.

Gallup described participants holding this view, which is common among conservative Protestants without a college education, as “creationist purists.”

Another 24% of respondents embraced the strict evolutionary view that humans evolved from less advanced life forms over millions of years without God’s involvement. That’s up 2 percentage points to a new high since the company last surveyed the issue in 2019.

Kamala Harris is quickly taking over from Joe Biden after he was deposed as the Democrats’ presumptive presidential nominee on Sunday. As Biden remained incommunicado at his Rehoboth Beach, Delaware beach house while recovering from COVID, Harris presided over a White House ceremony honoring NCAA athletes. Harris also posted she would visit the Wilmington, Delaware campaign headquarters of the former Biden campaign, now the Harris campaign, to say “hello” to staff. Harris did not say whether she will meet with Biden.

In the upload, which was shared to state her intention to step away from the platform to focus on ‘loves, life, desires and missions’, Melanie revealed her claimed experiences. ‘I’ve heard people in power at the BBC talk about the audience as the great unwashed,’ she alleged. ‘That’s how much they respect you, literally zero, just so you know, turn out is s**t for people they don’t give a f**k about.’

Coronation or open convention?

Democrats have less than one week to decide whether they will proceed with a virtual roll call to elect Vice President Kamala Harris as the Democratic nominee after President Biden’s campaign suspension just four months before the November election – but that hasn’t stopped them from taking their sweet time.

As late as Friday, the DNC rules committee was forging ahead with plans for a virtual roll call on Aug. 7 to avoid any legal challenges from Republicans on state ballot to nominate Biden as the nominee before the convention begins on Aug. 17.

The rules committee is next slated to meet on Wednesday – but their final decision isn’t due until Friday.

The remote call would mitigate issues coming from state ballot deadlines. Ohio’s state ballot deadline to name a nominee comes in the first week of August, and the convention will be too late to put Harris or another candidate on the ballot without legal risk.

Webmaster addition: So, in addition to telling millions of Democratic voters their primary votes don't count, now the DNC is going to block all potential convention challengers by anointing her highnessness ahead of time.

Remind me again who is a threat to Democracy?

Delta Air Lines canceled more than 600 flights on Monday, as the U.S. air carrier continued to struggle to restore operations after last week's global cyber outage, even as other airlines were recovering from the incident.

About 16% of Delta's flights had been canceled as of 7:00 a.m. ET, according to data from FlightAware, out of roughly 1,100 flights to or from the United States overall, the website said.

The issue has stranded thousands of Delta travelers across the United States, with some having to rent cars to drive hundreds of miles while others could have to wait days for new flights or cancel trips altogether.

Newsom had been named as a potential Democratic nominee or running mate, along with Govs. Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan, Andy Beshear of Kentucky, Josh Shapiro of Pennsylvania, and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg.

There’s just one problem for a potential Vice President Newsom: the 12th Amendment.

The amendment outlines how presidential electors in the Electoral College cast ballots for the presidential ticket.

It states’ electors “vote by ballot for President and Vice-President, one of whom, at least, shall not be an inhabitant of the same state with themselves.”

While Harris lives at the vice president’s residency at Washington, D.C.’s Naval Observatory, she maintains official residency and is registered to vote in California.

That means a ticket with two California residents would essentially void the state’s 54 electoral votes, according to legal experts.

Searches for “Willie Brown” surged on Google following Kamala Harris’s emergence as the presumptive front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, Headline USA has learned.

Brown is widely recognized as a key figure in Harris’s political rise, having appointed her to two California commissions in the early 1990s.

The two had an extramarital relationship while Brown was married to Blanche Vitero. Vitero and Brown were separated at the time.

In a 2019 op-ed for the San Francisco Chronicle, Brown acknowledged his influence on Harris’s career. “Sure, I dated Kamala Harris. So what?” he wrote in the headline.

“Yes, we dated. It was more than 20 years ago,” Brown wrote. “And I certainly helped with her first race for district attorney in San Francisco.”

Vice President Kamala Harris's ex-lover has a bright idea.

Why wait for 2024? Kamala should be president – right now!

Former San Francisco mayor and notorious playboy, Willie Brown, 90, who is 31 years Harris's senior and dated her in the 1990s, summoned local reporters for an impromptu news conference on Sunday.

Speaking outside John's Grill, where he holds court with the city's political elite, just moments after President Joe Biden's surprise announcement that he'd suspended his campaign, Brown told journalists that the president shouldn't just cede the Democratic nomination to Kamala, but he should make her commander-in-chief immediately.

Secret Service Director Kimberly Cheatle enraged lawmakers Monday as she awkwardly danced around questions from Congress trying to explain how a 20-year-old was able to shoot Donald Trump

Thomas Crooks, 20, climbed to the roof of a building roughly 140 yards away from the stage of a Trump rally in Butler, Pennsylvania, on July 13 before opening fire, shooting the former president and others, leaving one dead.

The tragedy has thrust Cheatle into the hot seat over how such an oversight, leading to the near-death of a former president and current presidential candidate, could happen under her watch.

On Monday morning, Cheatle testified before the House Oversight Committee that her agency is still actively investigating the assassination attempt on Trump that occurred nine days ago, and thus she is unable to answer many questions.

In light of the Israeli strike in Yemen, senior Houthi official Mohammed Ali al-Houthi issued a veiled threat to Israel on his X, formerly Twitter, account on Sunday evening, following reports from the terrorist organization of launches towards Israel.

Former IDF major-general Israel Ziv spoke with Anat Davidov and Udi Segal on 103FM and shared his insights on the Yemeni arena."The Houthis are not exactly Hezbollah," Ziv began. "Their distance and capabilities are fundamentally different. On one hand, it can't be underestimated because they do have considerable capabilities. We know how to handle most of the fire, but that's not the problem. The problem is we're entering a multi-front situation. The head of the octopus is sitting behind, and I think he's quite pleased with this. You can't defeat the Yemenis."Strike on Hodeidah port hurt the Houthis, but they have nothing to lose

Ziv continued, "I think that from the get-go, we took most of them down. This body has been fighting for years from caves. The strike on the port really hurts them, but they have nothing to lose. It didn't finish them off. It just made this front line more personal for them. What exactly will this lead to? Time will tell. It won't look like the North against Hezbollah. The story is they're in the process of expanding to other places while trying to harm freedom of navigation. If you want to influence the Houthis, it's not through direct attacks, but through Iran.

"Later, Ziv also referred to Biden's withdrawal from the US presidential race."I think Biden will continue until January," he said. "In theory, the same policies should continue, but on the other hand, stepping down from the presidency reduces the pressure on him, and he can make more personal decisions. This is more about other matters than Israel. There are many things where he's a lame duck. Regarding Israel, I'm very concerned about what Netanyahu is going to do in Congress. He could show us what happens when you anger the President of the United States. We don't live according to the US election cycle. We need them in this half-year."

Claire's Observations:  In light of the fact that Israel has been doing targeted assassinations on senior Iranian military personnel for several years, I have to wonder just HOW Retired General Ziv would suggest "dealing with Iran" right now; would that perchance be a "tactical nuclear strike" on Tehran to take out its leadership?!? 

I would  like to politely suggest  to General Ziv, that Russia and Iran now have a very deep "military relationship" https://www.stimson.org/2024/iran-and-russia-enter-a-new-level-of-military-cooperation/    Were I the General, or any other reasonable Israeli military planner, I would be very concerned about what the "quid pro quo" would be for highly sophisticated Russian weaponry in Iranian hands right now.

Joe Biden dropped from the 2024 presidential race on Sunday in a post on ‘X’ formerly known as Twitter.

The Biden White House staff later stated that they learned about the announcement only a minute after it was posted on X.

What is also odd is that the announcement was not written on official letterhead.

Internet have pointed out that the signature on the document does not appear to match Joe Biden’s usual signature.
