  • [EXTREME BARF ALERT] On Nov. 9, Let's Forget Donald Trump Happened

    10/23/2016 2:25:01 PM PDT · by bryan999 · 45 replies
    By Noah Feldman With Donald Trump’s chances of winning the White House narrowing, it’s not too soon to ask: If Hillary Clinton wins the presidency in November, what attitude should Democrats and Republicans alike take toward Trump voters? It will be tempting to excoriate or patronize them, or to woo them to your cause. But all of these approaches would be mistaken. A much better strategy -- for both parties -- is to engage in selective memory, and to treat Trump voters as though the whole sorry episode of his candidacy never occurred.
  • Bloomberg eyed Sec'y of State position in Clinton's cabinet, latest release of hacked emails reveals

    The New York Daily News ^ | October 15, 2016 | Laura Bult
    Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg had his sights set on being Hillary Clinton’s Secretary of State, emails from the latest WikiLeaks release reveal. WikiLeaks published a new batch of hacked Clinton campaign emails on Saturday which includes a June 3 exchange between Bloomberg aide Howard Wolfson and Clinton surrogate Neera Tanden about whether the former mayor would launch a presidential bid. Tanden, president of the Center for American Progress, emailed Wolfson a Twitter link to an article titled “NY Dems push Bloomberg to run for president” and asked him “What is up.” Wolfson quickly shut down hearsay that Bloomberg would launch...

    Las Vegas Sun ^ | Stavros Anthony
    In a recent editorial (“NRA’s wailing doesn’t drown out facts on background checks,” Sept. 4-10 edition), The Sunday claims the Question 1 gun-control ballot initiative is an “attempt at reasonable gun control” and portrays opponents as “fear-mongering.” But in the same breath, The Sunday acknowledges expanded background checks would will not solve gun violence and adds, “it is a step in the right direction.” That means that if the state were to adopt Question 1, which would criminalize virtually all private firearms transfers, gun-control supporters would immediately be calling for even more gun-control laws. That is exactly how it has...

    Shouldn’t journalists who want to tackle the issues related to illegal use of guns in America, and thereby help us find real solutions to violent crime in places like Chicago’s South Side, start by being honest? John Lott thinks so. It is this principled position that caused him to agree, despite his prior experiences, to be interviewed for Katie Couric’s film “Under The Gun.” As an expert on these issues, he hoped to offer some perspective and balance. Although he says he went into the interview like a person readying himself to be grilled by a prosecutor, even he was...

    Is Hillary Clinton squashing Donald Trump into oblivion in the polls? Or is her lead over him perilously shrinking? One thing we know is: there are countless ways to spin a poll. Consider the case of selective reporting on the most recent Bloomberg national poll.  On Aug. 10, Bloomberg reported “Clinton up 6 on Trump in Two Way Race.” But looking at the actual poll, Trump has moved so close to Clinton, the results are within the margin of error.In the most recent poll, the spread between Clinton and Trump in a two-person race was down to just 3 percentage points, Clinton at 45%...

It was the thrust of the argument made on the national stage by a respected politician that there’s nothing wrong with marrying a prostitute.Let me say at the outset that I have long believed that prostitution should be legalized. How do our laws state that pornography and massages are legal but prostitution is not? Why do we allow people to marry for money? Why do women’s rights groups fight for women to be...

After the December 2012 shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., she created the “One Million Moms for Gun Control” Facebook page. It later became “Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.” We should have noted that Watts has a background in corporate communications. From 1998 to mid-2012, she was a corporate communications executive or consultant at such companies as Monsanto and FleishmanHillard. Before that, Watts had what she says was a...

    Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) is working with former New York mayor and vocal gun-control advocate Michael Bloomberg’s organization to attempt to come up with a measure to keep terrorists from acquiring guns. A spokeswoman from Bloomberg’s organization, Everytown for Gun Safety, said Wednesday that the group was “working with Toomey’s office on the terror gap,” referring to a quirk in the laws that makes it legal for people on the government’s terrorist watch lists to purchase firearms. Toomey’s office would not comment Wednesday. It’s unclear if the effort will result in the actual drafting of a bill or is a...

    Michael Bloomberg, the billionaire former mayor of New York City, confirmed on Monday that he is actively considering running for president as an independent. In a dramatic interview, the 73-year-old said he was 'looking at all the options' and expressed disgust at the current state of the White House race. Bloomberg would be the richest candidate in American political history with a fortune of $36 billion, dwarfing the resources of Republican Donald Trump and enabling him to self-fund a campaign many times over.

    The pursuit of happiness is to enter into obedience and not leave. Many of My children are doing their own thing which truly has nothing to do with My Kingdom or The Father's will and in such manner have heaped upon themselves coals of futility weighing themselves down with yokes of bondage. However where My Spirit is there is freedom and in this place you will find My Vessels filled from My Spring of Life within them for there is a well flowing freely that need not be dug again. . . 2 Corinthians 3:17 17 Now the Lord is...

    Veteran GOP pollster Frank Luntz says there is much more than a political lane available for former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg (I) to join the presidential race as an independent candidate. Luntz's reasoning came from a nationwide poll of 900 likely voters conducted by his firm, Luntz Global Partners. The survey found that 29% of Americans would support Bloomberg in a theoretical three-way race between the former mayor, GOP front-runner Donald Trump, and Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton. Trump would receive 37% of the vote, while Clinton would emerge with 33%. In a three-way race with Sen. Ted Cruz...

    Rupert Murdoch is urging former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg to throw his hat in the ring and run for president. "This is Bloomberg's last chance," the billionaire media mogul tweeted Wednesday morning. "You never know until your hat is in the ring!" Murdoch added, in what may be a veiled reference to Donald Trump's planned boycott of Thursday's GOP presidential debate on his Fox News Channel: "Events change everything, especially during elections."
  • Does Mike Bloomberg Know Something We Don’t About the Clinton FBI Probe?

    Another explanation is that he sees trouble ahead for Hillary Clinton. Because of his close relationship with former NYC police Chief Ray Kelly and others in the law enforcement community, he might have the inside track on the FBI investigation into the former Secretary of State’s handling of classified documents and questionable foundation-related activities. Democrats have done a fine job of completely dismissing the FBI inquiry, but the possibility that Clinton could face serious legal hurdles may be encouraging Bloomberg’s ambitions. The probe is not, as some Hillary backers have claimed, scandal-mongering by right-wing zealots. It is a serious investigation,...

    Rupert Murdoch broke his three-day Twitter silence Wednesday morning to urge former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg to join the 2016 White House race amid an ongoing feud with Republican front-runner — and fellow New York billionaire — Donald Trump. "This is Bloomberg's last chance,” Murdoch tweeted. "You never know until your hat is in the ring!” "Events change everything,” the News Corp. boss added, cryptically, "especially during elections.” Murdoch’s Fox News is currently engaged in a rapidly escalating war of words with Trump, who has vowed to skip Thursday night’s Republican debate, which is being hosted by the...
