Unemployment rises to 9.6% -
while 67,000 jobs were added last month in the private sector, it was not enough to keep pace with those looking for work. Expect unemployment to inch closer to 10% by the time the November 2 General Election is held.

This is more bad news for Democrats and the Obama administration as the economy remains the number one issue to voters. has more here.


Steele Set to begin 48 state bus tour -
the embattled RNC chair will begin the bus tour on September 15 and end on October 30. He plans to highlight vulnerable Democrats along the way and hopes to energize Republican voters.

Already under fire for his many gaffes and the fact the RNC has only 5 million cash on hand with over 2 million debt, Republican critics are criticizing his spending money on a bus tour instead of television ads. has more here.


Justice Department Sues Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio -
seems the Arizona Sheriff, who has increased in name recognition due to his stand against undocumented workers, has refused for the past year to cooperate with the Justice Department on a civil rights investigation. As they receive federal funds, they are required to cooperate with federal investigations. Expect the immigration debate to be ratcheted up as a result. has more here.


Israel-Palestine agree to continue Peace Talks every two weeks -
after participating in talks yesterday, brokered by the U.S., Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas will meet again in two weeks in Egypt. U.S. Middle East Envoy George Mitchell says the talks could take up to a year as the two leaders work to reach agreement on a multitude of issues. has more here.
