CBS News reports that federal officials have notified authorities in New York, Texas, and Virginia about a possible, “low-level” terror threat for Election Day, Tuesday, November 8. These reports go on to say that polling stations may be targets for “lone-wolf” assailants.

It’s important to note that this threat came from unconfirmed, anonymous sources that officials are still investigating.

"Texans should go about their daily lives as usual,” said Texas Governor Greg Abbott. “But remain vigilant over the next several days and report any suspicious activity.”

“We are doing everything we can to keep Virginians safe,” said Brian Coy, Communications Director to Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe. “We're confident they are going to be able to vote safely on Election Day.”

The FBI has yet to confirm or comment on the details of the report.

Like a 60-year-old man who forgot his Hotmail password, the FBI is once again trying to get into Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's email server, reopening its investigation. This time, however, there's a new player on the field: Anthony Weiner. That's right, the man who can't figure out a DM has found has found himself at the heart of yet another high-profile tech-related scandal.

After the FBI seized electronics belonging to Clinton-aide and Weiner's wife, Huma Abedin, new emails regarding the investigation were uncovered.

The New York Times reports: "The F.B.I. told Congress that it had uncovered new emails related to the closed investigation into whether Mrs. Clinton or her aides had mishandled classified information, potentially reigniting an issue that has weighed on the presidential campaign and offering a lifeline to Donald J. Trump less than two weeks before the election.

In a letter to Congress, the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, said that emails had surfaced in an unrelated case, and that they 'appear to be pertinent to the investigation.'"

Last September, Comey cleared Clinton of any criminal wrongdoing but referred to her actions as "extremely careless." Now we get to relive the magic of this story all over again.

Buckle up, dear readers, this election is going to last the rest of our lives.

It seems Donald Trump's VP nominee--the super-religious, anti-woman, Indiana Governor Mike Pence--used to draw cartoons called "Law School Daze" for the school newspaper back during his own law school days at Indiana University's Robert H. McKinney School of Law.

The boring cartoons may just give us more insight into his future policies now that he's on the national stage, so let's analyze them and see what makes him tick!

Here we see his future plans for underfunding education:

His idolization of ass-kissing and why he is psyched to be Trump's right-hand man:

...and his ability to plan for the future of our Country:

Pence IRL is just as forgettable as his drawings, though he's been a dick for most of his political life.

Here's to hoping we can see some of this behavior in a VP debate come Fall:

As always, the Brits troll it with style.

Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn, recently lied about there being no empty seats on a pretty-empty Virgin train despite walking passed a ton of 'em. He is now getting hard-trolled by the Liberal Democrats party as the new pic of their 404-Error page.

Well, that's what you get for pissing off pretty much everyone in Britain...

To have some fun with it yourself, go here.
