  • Hacked Audio Reveals Hillary Clinton Sees Herself Occupying “Center-Left to Center-Right”

    In the hacked recording of a private conversation with campaign donors in February, Hillary Clinton distanced herself from progressive goals like “free college, free healthcare” and described her place on the political spectrum as spanning from the center-left to the center-right. Clinton has been inconsistent in the past about espousing political labels. She has at times touted herself as stalwart liberal. For instance, she said last July: “I take a backseat to no one when you look at my record in standing up and fighting for progressive values.” But a few months later, she told a group in Ohio: “You...

    Secretary of State Kerry, said he had lost the argument within Obama to back up diplomatic efforts to end the bloodshed in Syria with the threat of using military force. The NewYork Times, said it had obtained an audio recording of the 40-minute discussion that took place at the Dutch Mission to the United Nations on Sept. 22. (with) Syrian groups that provide education, rescue and medical services in rebel-held areas and diplomats from three or four countries, the Times said. The meeting took place days after a cease-fire Kerry had negotiated with Russia had collapsed and rebel-held areas of...

    Ok, folks, I've had enough of Ted Cruz and a handful of others trying to fundraise on the back of the Internet handover issue.First, this is not a surprise nor something Obama cooked up in the dead of night.  The expiration of the existing arrangement has been known for literal years and the timing of same has been known for the same amount of time.  If the US Congress wanted to intervene it has had years to do so and has intentionally not done so.  So to Ted Cruz and others (Jim DeMint anyone?) who is now claiming "emergency", go perform an anatomically-impossible act; if you...

    FBI Director James Comey admitted in his testimony before the House Judiciary Committee that they found "some" classified emails on the computers of longtime Hillary Clinton confidante Cheryl Mills and another top aide. Both aides, however, were given immunity in the case, which conveniently protects them from being prosecuted from anything found on their computers. When asked if these classified emails constituted a crime, Comey first dodged the question asking “if what was a crime,” and then offered a somewhat roundabout response: “you’d have to know what were the circumstances... [and] the intention around it.” But House Republicans charge that...

    For more than a decade, Suleiman Anwar Bengharsa has served as a Muslim cleric in Maryland, working as a prison chaplain and as an imam at mosques in Annapolis and outside Baltimore. He gave a two-week course in 2011 on Islamic teachings on marriage at the Islamic Society of Baltimore, where President Obama made a much-publicized visit this year. But in the last two years, Imam Bengharsa’s public pronouncements have taken a dark turn. On Facebook, he has openly endorsed the Islamic State, posted gruesome videos showing ISIS fighters beheading and burning alive their enemies and praised terrorist attacks overseas....

    The government threat to Deutsche Bank’s safety and soundness began on Sept. 15. That’s when the Journal reported that Justice was demanding an eye-watering $14 billion to resolve an investigation of the bank’s sale of mortgage-backed securities prior to the 2008 financial panic. Deutsche Bank then had to acknowledge the size of this government stick-up as its stock price proceeded to drop more than 20% in a fortnight. The lack of exuberance among investors was entirely rational. Washington’s proposed withdrawal represented most of the bank’s market capitalization.

    Hillary Clinton has gained ground on Donald Trump, who has slipped in key measures of the presidential race after the first debate. First, the horserace. Clinton is ahead of Trump by three percentage points: 43-40 percent in the four-way matchup, according to a new Fox News Poll of likely voters. Her advantage is within the poll’s margin of sampling error. Two weeks ago, Clinton was up by one (41-40 percent). Third-party candidates Gary Johnson (8 percent) and Jill Stein (4 percent) remain in single digits. In the two-candidate head-to-head, Clinton tops Trump by five: 49-44 percent.

He has no legislative voting record or executive political decision-making record. In fact, like all private citizens, again like most of us, he can change and has the right to change his mind on issues, political parties, and how he has made private life decisions with regard to his family, business, and personal ideals,...

    Ape shall never kill ape. The primate society in the 1973 film “Battle for the Planet of the Apes,” the fifth installment in the Planet of the Apes franchise, was governed by this central rule. It was a pleasant sentiment even when chanted from beneath a rubber mask. But such niceties never seem to last, particularly not in post-apocalyptic fiction. We hate to rock Dr. Zaius‘s world, but that rule does not exist in real-life mammal societies, either. As a new study published in the journal Nature demonstrated, not only does ape kill ape, but the mammalian world is full...

    Just as we were beginning to think that the worst was behind Samsung regarding the Galaxy Note 7 battery fiasco, Chinese state broadcaster CCTV has lambasted Samsung for discriminating against Chinese consumers when it comes to the terms of the recall. A commentary posted to the broadcaster’s website on Thursday calls out Samsung’s handling of the recall as “full of arrogance” and suggests that Samsung has discriminated against Chinese consumers by insisting that phones in the country do not need replacing. China has not been included in the global Note 7 recall, so customers are not entitled to replacements...

On this basis, the initial intensity has been increased to 140 kt, making Matthew a Category 5 on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale.

    Whether you think there has been a housing “recovery” or not is a matter of perspective. Sales are indeed up 117% since the 2010 low, but that low was literally the worst level in the history of this data (since 1963) as a percentage of population growth. It was the Great Depression of Housing, the only possible result of the greatest housing bubble since the 1920s, if not in history. While sales have rebounded since that low, the current sales rate has barely recovered to the levels seen at the recession lows of 1991 and 1982. This rebound is little...

    With just 39 days to go in the 2016 presidential race, there is seemingly little that cable news networks and pro-Democrat media “watchdogs” can do to stop the momentum of Donald Trump’s campaign. Media outlets and “fact checkers” have pored over every nook and cranny of Trump’s businesses and campaign since last July; they’ve waited with bated breath for Trump to say something unforgivable at a rally or a fundraiser. But seemingly none of it has worked. While the race remains nail-bitingly close in several battleground states, Friday’s Los Angeles Times tracking poll has Trump up six points on Clinton...

    Besides Gary Johnson, he means, right? Doesn’t he? Or was Carl Bernstein right that Weld, a Massachusetts centrist, would end up defecting from the ticket and trying to help Clinton down the stretch if he got spooked that a Trump presidency is a real possibility? He’s much more complimentary of Johnson in the clip below than the headline above would suggest, as you’ll see (the key line about Hillary comes near the very end), but it’s odd nonetheless for a candidate in one party to say that no one’s more qualified than a candidate from another. It’s not the only...

    MEMPHIS, Tennessee, September 29, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — An all-boys Catholic high school in Memphis, Tennessee, is being sued for $1 million by a former student who claims the school caused him “severe injuries and damages” by refusing to allow him to bring his same-sex date to a homecoming dance last year. The suit, filed Sept. 20 in Circuit Court on behalf of Lance Sanderson, states that Christian Brothers High School (CBHS) caused the teenage boy who identifies as “gay” to “suffer severe injuries and damages which include, but are not limited to disability, past and future emotional distress, past and...

    PUEBLO, Colo. – Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump will campaign in Pueblo Monday ahead of his already-announced stop in Loveland. Trump will rally at the Pueblo Convention Center at 3 p.m. Monday, Oct. 3. Doors to the event will open at noon. He will head up to Loveland afterward, where he is likely to speak around 5 or 6 p.m. Doors for that event, which will be held at the Budweiser Events Center, open at 3 p.m. His campaign has recently dumped about $2 million in new advertising into Colorado after recent polls began to show the lead Democratic rival...

    Donald Trump’s middle-of-the-night tweets about a beauty queen sex tape are frustrating Republican supporters, who worry once again that their candidate’s lack of discipline will hamper his campaign. They say Trump needs to keep his focus on Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, prepare for their second debate, on Oct. 9 in St. Louis, and quit taking the bait from Democrats. “It’s unlikely the Miss Universe flap is hurting Trump with current supporters, but it’s hard to see how it helps grow our vote,” said one GOP lawmaker who supports Trump. “Maybe it's quaint conventional wisdom. But it seems he would help...

    The aging-boomer hippie magazine Rolling Stone still enjoys mocking their percieved bad taste of Flyover Country. This week, they made a list of the "12 Worst TV Shows of All Time" and topped hit list of "cream of the crud" with Duck Dynasty. Rob Sheffield asked: "Too much quality TV got you down? All that art and introspection making you pine for the long-gone age of junk?" The headline singled out "bottom-feeding reality shows." That apparently includes both the Bible-toting Robertsons and Ozzy Osbourne's clan in MTV's Osbournes Reloaded. Duck Dynasty was rated worse than the 1970s sitcom spinoffs on...

    At about 2 min. into the video Hillary's left eye begins to jump around eratically and you can tell that she is becoming distressed by it. She is becoming concerned that her usual head-bob is not concealing it. The eye is going every which way completely out of control. It goes on for several minutes and ends only when Bernies announces it is time for her to spead. I haven't seen this picked up elsewhere. FReepers please feel free to provide links if it has! It could be isolated and blown up for medical professionals to analyze.
