  • (Vanity) FBI Agent's Wife Received Over $1 million and Paid it to a Priorities USA Bendor

    Props to the redditor who busted this: Okay people... follow the money! The Clinton's friends gave a lot more than $467,500. They actually gave over $1,000,000.00 as I've shown here: BUT then all that money went back to Shorr Johnson Magnus as media buys. This important because Shorr Johnson Magnus only works with Superpacs and large Federal elections, not small state elections. They are the media consultants for Priorities USA which as we know works closely with Hillary Clinton. So the Clinton's give her one million dollars (via friends) then take it all back using Shorr Johnson Magnus....

    "Dating back to Richard Nixon's presidential run, the candidate whose Halloween mask sells the most is far more likely to win the election. If that trend continues, Election Day could be frightening for Hillary Clinton voters. According Savers/Value Village, Donald Trump masks are outselling Clinton masks by 7 percentage points, as the Deluxe Trump mask's sell-through is at 76 percent while the Deluxe Clinton masks are selling at 69 percent."

In the email thread, dated October 4, 2015, a “speech draft” was passed around “on behalf of Megan Rooney.” The email contained “talking points” for Clinton to use to discuss guns in Manchester.

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Premiums will go up sharply next year under President Barack Obama's health care law, and many consumers will be down to just one insurer, the administration confirmed Monday. That will stoke another "Obamacare" controversy days before a presidential election. Before taxpayer-provided subsidies, premiums for a midlevel benchmark plan will increase an average of 25 percent across the 39 states served by the federally run online market, according to a report from the Department of Health and Human Services. Some states will see much bigger jumps, others less. Moreover, about 1 in 5 consumers will only have plans...

    The Pentagon is seeking to recover decade-old reenlistment bonuses paid to thousands of California Army National Guard soldiers to go fight in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Los Angeles Times (link) reported that nearly 10,000 soldiers, many of whom completed multiple combat tours, have been ordered to repay the cash bonuses after audits revealed widespread overpayments by California Guard officials. The soldiers say the military is reneging on old agreements and imposing severe financial hardship on those whose only mistake was to accept the bonuses, which amounted to $15,000 or more.

The ball kept veering to the same corner of her living room. Those were the first signs for residents of the sleek, mirrored high-rise that something was wrong. The 58-story building has gained notoriety in recent weeks as the "leaning tower of San Francisco." But it's not just leaning. It's sinking, too. And engineers hired to assess the problem say it shows no immediate sign of stopping. "What concerns me most is the tilting," says...

Hillary’s breathtaking lack of concrete achievements or even minimal initiatives over her long public career doesn’t faze her admirers a whit.
