    Roy Moore has a nearly 20-point lead over Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.), the candidate backed by President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) in Alabama's Senate special election, according to a new poll. The survey conducted by JMC Analytics and Polling found the former chief justice of Alabama's Supreme Court with 51 percent support, compared to 32 percent for Strange. The two will face one another in a runoff election to be the GOP nominee on Sept. 26. (R-Ala.) fell out of the contest, taking 19 percent of the vote. Whoever wins the GOP nomination will be the...
  • Obama 2.0 in 2020

    Not surprisingly, Deval Patrick has been ordained by the Obama camp as the favorite for 2020. As Obama 2.0, the former Massachusetts governor would bring the same failed policies as his mentor. The danger is that by 2020, much of the electorate will have forgotten just how flawed those policies were. And so a brief reminder: First, Obama was fortunate enough to have inherited an economy that had begun to recover by the time he entered the White House in January 2009. The economy would have recovered no matter who was president. Obama's contribution was to make it the slowest...
  • What if the DNC Russian “hack” was really a leak after all? (Salon swallows the red pill)

    Last week the respected left-liberal magazine The Nation published an explosive article that details in great depth the findings of a new report — authored in large part by former U.S. intelligence officers — which claims to present forensic evidence that the Democratic National Committee was not hacked by the Russians in July 2016. Instead, the report alleges, the DNC suffered an insider leak, conducted in the Eastern time zone of the United States by someone with physical access to a DNC computer. This report also claims there is no apparent evidence that the hacker known as Guccifer 2.0 —...
  • Clinton’s Pastor Says Hillary’s Loss Worst Injustice Since Christ’s Crucifixion [semi-satire]

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 13 August 2017 | John Semmens
    Methodist minister Bill Shillady compared Hillary Clinton’s loss to Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and concluded that “it was the second worst instance of injustice in human history. In both cases we saw exemplary paragons of virtue punished for the sins of others.” Shillady predicted “a Hell on Earth under the demon that is Donald Trump,” but offered a ray of hope that “the forces of righteousness will triumph in the end. Right now, true believers are working assiduously to unseat the unholy Trump and clear the way for the ascension of...

    Remember when the Russians hacked the DNC email and records system last year? Yeah, about that… Cyber experts have been digging through all of the available material for over a year now trying to pin down exactly what happened but the answers to date have been less than satisfying. This isn’t the first time, but now another report has come out saying that the standard explanation we’ve been given (Russia, Russia Russia) doesn’t appear to hold water. The interesting aspect here is that this one isn’t coming from some right wing source with an ax to grind against Hillary Clinton,...

    RUSH: Folks, get this, there are, today, three separate, huge exposes/stories on the entire Russia/Trump collusion bit. One of them is in The Nation.

    Media Bias: Journalists rushed to the defense of two reporters after President Trump accused them of being "reluctant to cover" the scandalous tarmac meeting between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton. But a review of the entire cache of email exchanges inside the Justice Department at the time shows that Trump has it right. Trump was referring to email exchanges between Justice public affairs officials and reporters from The New York Times and the Washington Post. The emails were among the 400-plus pages of internal emails that flew around at Justice soon after a local Phoenix reporter happened to...

    On August 4, the American Center for Law and Justice obtained over 400 pages of documents related to Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s infamous tarmac meeting with Former President Bill Clinton last summer. When the original Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Request was filed under the Obama Administration, the Federal Bureau of Investigation had denied that any such records existed; now, approximately 413 pages of documents have been made available to the public. The ACLJ explains: "First, the Comey FBI lied to us. Last July, we sent FOIA requests to both the Comey FBI and the Lynch DOJ asking for any...

    **SNIP** "I am not ashamed to admit I am more afraid than ever,” writes novelist Meredith Russo. For novelist Mira Jacob, the moment evoked the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001: “At four [a.m.], I bolted awake with a surge of fear I have not felt for fifteen years.” And writer Nicole Chung recalls how, that evening, she and her husband “would remain up for hours, alternately swearing and reaching for each other’s hands in bleary and increasing panic.” Stanford University scholar Jeff Chang emphasizes how Trump capitalizes on such emotions — “fear is the lubricant of demagoguery,” he says —...
  • Republican Shadow Campaign for 2020 Takes Shape as Trump Doubts Grow

    Senators Tom Cotton and Ben Sasse have already been to Iowa this year, Gov. John Kasich is eyeing a return visit to New Hampshire, and Mike Pence’s schedule is so full of political events that Republicans joke that he is acting more like a second-term vice president hoping to clear the field than a No. 2 sworn in a little over six months ago. President Trump’s first term is ostensibly just warming up, but luminaries in his own party have begun what amounts to a shadow campaign for 2020 — as if the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue weren’t...

    The National Security Agency and Federal Bureau of Investigation violated specific civil liberty protections during the Obama years by improperly searching and disseminating raw intelligence on Americans or failing to promptly delete unauthorized intercepts, according to newly declassified memos that provide some of the richest detail to date on the spy agencies’ ability to obey their own rules. The memos reviewed by The Hill were publicly released on July 11 through Freedom of Information Act litigation by the American Civil Liberties Union.
