  • Clinton Campaign & Obama Administration Pushing Election Cyber Hacking Story

    dc whispers ^ | August 30, 2016
    There were two relatively minor incidents that took place earlier this summer which are now being used by both the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Obama administration to call for increased federal control over the election process – as well as a possible means of delegitimizing an election outcome should that outcome declare Donald Trump the winner. NBC, CNN, and the New York Times have led the recent magnification of the election hacking story based upon a months-old hack of a board of election site, and a failed hack of another. That is not to say such a hack does...

    The Daily Signal ^ | August 26, 2016 | Josh Siegel
    Fresh after Congress and the White House scored the largest transportation spending package in a decade, both presidential candidates this year are proposing billions in funding to rebuild the nation’s infrastructure. While both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump—and the parties they represent—agree the nation’s roads, bridges, airports, rail system, and ports are in need of repair, the new proposals invite familiar questions over how the spending would be paid for, and whether the federal government is the best provider to pay for it. Those questions, and the lack of a must-pass infrastructure initiative requiring Congress’ attention in 2017, mean that...

At a glance, the two websites look virtually indistinguishable. Both feature a photo of Donald Trump, in a suit and red tie, in front of a giant American flag. Both seemingly offer a chance for two to win dinner with Donald Trump. One is at donaldjtrump.com; the other is at dinnerwithtrump.org. The first belongs to Trump’s campaign.

    The FBI has uncovered evidence that foreign hackers penetrated two state election databases in recent weeks, prompting the bureau to warn election officials across the country to take new steps to enhance the security of their computer systems, according to federal and state law enforcement officials. The FBI warning, contained in a “flash” alert from the FBI’s Cyber Division, a copy of which was obtained by Yahoo News, comes amid heightened concerns among U.S. intelligence officials about the possibility of cyberintrusions, potentially by Russian state-sponsored hackers, aimed at disrupting the November elections. Those concerns prompted Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson...

    For more than a year, Donald Trump took the hardest line on immigration — vowing to deport 11 million illegal immigrants en masse and pillorying his GOP primary rivals as favoring “amnesty.” But 11 weeks before the election, Trump is suddenly sounding a lot like the opponents he repeatedly ridiculed. The nominee and his campaign aides are now talking openly about requiring illegal immigrants to pay back taxes and potentially allowing those without criminal records to stay in the country — lines that Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida repeatedly used in the GOP presidential primary. Trump also says that any...

[ ] Voting 2-1, a panel of the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals held that the General Assembly’s law shortening the early vote calendar does not discriminate against particular blocs of voters.

According to the Advocate, Ross said Obama’s speech wrongly switched the emphasis from the threat of radical Islam to a plea for more gun control for law-abiding citizens.

    All the pomp and circumstance has passed. The balloons have fallen, and the conventions are over and through. Expect to see a bounce for Secretary Clinton that essentially wipes away the bump Donald Trump received in the hours and days following his Cleveland closeout. Yes, now is the time in the presidential election cycle for the proverbial pivot - the shift to full campaign mode in which each side bunkers down and prepares for the onslaught of war. The team that makes the fewest mistakes in this episode wins.I love these times. They test the political mettle of a candidate....

    Donald J. Trump, confronting a daunting electoral map and a significant financial disadvantage, is preparing to fall back from an expansive national campaign and concentrate the bulk of his time and money on just three or four states that his campaign believes he must sweep in order to win the presidency. Even as Mr. Trump has ticked up in national polls in recent weeks, senior Republicans say his path to the 270 Electoral College votes needed for election has remained narrow — and may have grown even more precarious. It now looks exceedingly difficult for him to assemble even the...

    Charles Koch warns politicians are offering ‘frightening’ answers to improve society By Matea Gold July 30 at 9:06 PM COLORADO SPRINGS — Billionaire industrialist Charles Koch on Saturday chastised the political class, saying that those seeking public office were offering "frightening" answers and largely failing to promote a society that provides opportunity for all. “Our goal is to unite people from all walks of life to work for what we call a free and open society — a society of opportunity, of free speech, free exchange, and what we call permissionless innovation,” Koch told conservative donors assembled in a hotel...

    Jennifer Lim was presented to the DNC Convention audience as the co-founder of Republican women for Hillary. What the DNC did not tell the audience was Lim’s day job as a lobbyist for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Both the Democrats and Republicans are unified under a globalist, financial, Wall Street, umbrella. There is no difference between the Democrats and Republicans – they are the UniParty. The UniParty has two wings, Democrats and Republicans, but the overriding goals –and the...
