    Rep. Paul Mitchell’s district, which includes northern Macomb County and parts of other counties in Michigan’s thumb, voted two-to-one for Trump over Clinton. Mitchell did only slightly worse, beating his Democratic opponent 63 percent to 32 percent Both Trump and Mitchell appealed to voters here because they’re straight-talking businessmen who promised to bring back jobs lost to trade, cut taxes, and address Michigan’s crumbling infrastructure The Democrats have lost touch with Macomb County values, Mitchell said. Their preoccupation with gender and race “doesn’t sell” here. “I guess the best way to view it is elitist East Coast, West Coast values...

    “Forget about the white men’s vote! But I think I myself could have perhaps done a better job in reaching out and reassuring women and white voters in general, and I think I was on my way to winning as I say in the book, until Jim Comey’s letter, aided and abetted by the Russian WikiLeaks information weaponisation,” Clinton told The Economist Asks.

    It's increasingly obvious that it's the British, rather than the Russians, who are meddling in American politics. The British are once again using "fake intelligence" to influence American politics. After the 9/11 attack the British used fake intelligence about WMD in Iraq to get President George W. Bush to help them invade Iraq. The British treated rumors about WMD as if they were proven facts. Now they are using fake intelligence to undermine President Donald Trump. Patrick Cockburn in the "London Independent" says the charges about Trump's alleged association with the Russians are based on information that is at least...

    The special counsel investigating whether Russia tried to sway the 2016 U.S. election has taken over FBI inquiries into a former British spy’s dossier of allegations of Russian financial and personal links to President Trump’s campaign and associates, sources familiar with the inquiry told Reuters. A report compiled by former MI6 officer Christopher Steele identified Russian businessmen and others whom U.S. intelligence analysts have concluded are Russian intelligence officers or working on behalf of the Russian government. Trump was told by former FBI director James Comey that Steele’s report contained salacious material about the businessman-turned-president. In a report published in...

    Hollywood movie mogul Harvey Weinstein will be hosting a star-studded fundraiser for Hillary Clinton on Monday night in New York City. The Democratic donor, who owns the Hamptons house next door to the $50,000-a-week vacation home the Clintons rented last summer, has already maxed out to Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign and contributed up to $250,000 to the Clinton Foundation. His latest favor for his Hamptons pal will be hosting the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Sarah Jessica Parker, Matthew Broderick, and climate change hero Leonardo DiCaprio at his Manhattan home for a fundraiser benefitting the Hillary Victory Fund, according to the...

    Facebook, Google, and Twitter all directly advised campaigns on how to influence voters — and the help may have been decisive. Facebook’s role during the 2016 presidential election has come under extraordinary scrutiny in recent weeks. Most notably, attention has swirled around a Kremlin-backed troll farm’s purchase of $100,000 worth of ads on the platform during the election cycle. This came on the heels of controversies over the proliferation of "fake news" during the campaign. But our research shows another, less discussed aspect of Facebook’s political influence was far more consequential in terms of the election outcome. The entirely routine...

    Emails show strategizing over 2016 presidential race! Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and COO Sheryl Sandberg colluded with Hillary Clinton’s 2016 election campaign, charges WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Assange tweeted links to email exchanges between Clinton’s former campaign chairman, John Podesta, and Sandberg, demonstrating Sandberg used her position at the leading social networking site to promote Clinton’s candidacy. “I still want HRC to win badly. I am still here to help as I can. She came over and was magical with my kids,” Sandberg wrote in an email to Podesta. In another email, Podesta thanked Sandberg for assisting the Clinton campaign....

    Jeh Johnson told lawmakers Thursday he's unaware of any evidence showing cyberattacks affected voting in the 2016 presidential election. But, the former secretary of homeland security said it's a concerning possibility. "The integrity of our election outcomes on a national level dances on the head of a pin," he told an election security task force assembled by congressional Democrats. "If writers of the TV series ‘House of Cards' can figure that out, then a lot of other people can do the same."

    Clinton, in an interview airing Saturday promoting her 2016 election memoir What Happened, told MSNBC host Joy Reid she made the "original mistake" with the server at the State Department, but the media bore the blame for its coverage. "What do you say to reporters who say, ‘Well, the email scandal was not the media's fault, it was your fault,'" Reid asked. "Oh, I made the original mistake, but people running for office make all kinds of mistakes," Clinton said. "I mean, Trump had a million mistakes that he made before he ever ran and that he made once he...

    AUGUSTA, Georgia (CNN) — Among the possible evidence in the government's case against former federal contractor Reality Winner is a notebook with information handwritten in Farsi, prosecutors said in court Tuesday. The writing is being translated, federal prosecutors told a judge at a hearing. Winner, who is accused on one count of taking classified information home from work and leaking it to a media outlet, remains in jail awaiting an anticipated October 23 trial. She has pleaded not guilty. Winner was a linguist while in the US Air Force from 2010 to 2016 and speaks Farsi, Dari and Pashto, her...

    The federal government on Friday told election officials in 21 states that hackers targeted their systems before last year’s presidential election. The notification came roughly a year after U.S. Department of Homeland Security officials first said states were targeted by hacking efforts possibly connected to Russia. The states that told The Associated Press they had been targeted included some key political battlegrounds, such as Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin. The AP contacted every state election office to determine which ones had been informed that their election systems had been targeted. The others confirming were Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado,...

    The Democratic Party is looking at Donald Trump’s approval ratings and sees an opening. Maybe they can ride a blue wave and retake Congress, except it’s already off to a bumpy start. For starters, the Democratic Party has no message, no leader, and no agenda. Yes, that “better deal” was pitched, but it’s vanished largely forgotten by voters and for good reason. It was a carbon copy of Hillary Clinton’s failed 2016 campaign platform. Democrats need 24 seats to flip the House and they’re viewing GOP districts in which Hillary won as their road to victory. Yet, that’s the issue....

    Samantha Power, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, was 'unmasking' at such a rapid pace in the final months of the Obama administration that she averaged more than one request for every working day in 2016 – and even sought information in the days leading up to President Trump’s inauguration, multiple sources close to the matter told Fox News.

    The Coach's Team ^ | 9/20/17 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    The following article was originally posted on The Coach's Team on April 12th, 2016. The author was a pretty sharp cookie! The “experts” are using “reliable” polls to say Hillary Clinton would bury Donald Trump in a general election. The “experts” are conveniently disregarding the dynamic scoring factor for obvious reasons. We usually only see dynamic scoring in the disastrous results of Democrat legislatures raising taxes without regard for what social dynamic factors will do to their “projected” revenue yields. As this faulty logic goes; if they get $100.00 in tax money from the sale of an item, it stands...

    Washington (CNN)US investigators wiretapped former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort under secret court orders before and after the election, sources tell CNN, an extraordinary step involving a high-ranking campaign official now at the center of the Russia meddling probe. The government snooping continued into early this year, including a period when Manafort was known to talk to President Donald Trump. Some of the intelligence collected includes communications that sparked concerns among investigators that Manafort had encouraged the Russians to help with the campaign, according to three sources familiar with the investigation. Two of these sources, however, cautioned that the evidence...

    Well, it looks like Hillary Clinton is moving onto the latest offensive in her rampage against those who she feels contributed to her defeat in the 2016 election: the media. At Recode in May, a tech conference in California, she said that the media covered her emails like it was Pearl Harbor. She also says that the press didn’t do their jobs last year, and that they “can’t bear to face their own role in helping elect Trump, from providing him free airtime to giving my emails three times more coverage that all the issues affecting people’s lives combined.”Seriously, lady—weren’t...

    Hillary Clinton said she wouldn’t rule out challenging the legitimacy of the 2016 presidential election if Russian interference turned out to be deeper than previously thought. “No, I wouldn't rule it out,” she said in an interview with NPR published Monday. The defeated Democratic nominee stressed, however, that she does not believe there is a means to officially challenge the election’s outcome.
