    It was a long wait. Today’s blockbuster report from the Associated Press about Hillary Clinton’s meetings with Clinton Foundation donors during her time as Secretary of State contained the following nugget: “The AP sought Clinton’s calendar and schedules three years ago, but delays led the AP to sue the State Department last year in federal court for those materials and other records.”

    Donald Trump‘s new campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, was in the tank for Ted Cruz throughout the primary season. Prior to boarding the Trump Train, Conway spoke out against political name-calling, so tonight on Fox News, Megyn Kelly asked how she can work for a campaign that is notorious for, well, name-calling. Kelly even brought up the fact that Trump called MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski “neurotic” just today: Conway said that he won’t call someone a name without being attacked first, so Kelly asked if that is really an excuse. Kelly then took a quick dig at MSNBC, saying that Morning Joe...

  • BREAKING: Wiki Leak Email Found Showing Secret Memo To Obama From ISIS

    Assange Promises To Prove She Funded And Equipped ISIS In “October Surprise” Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton continue to act clueless when it comes to ISIS. They act clueless about when they formed, where they are today, and how can we defeat them. They are lazy, but they are also severely incompetent. Last week, Donald Trump asserted that Hillary Clinton and Obama “founded ISIS.” Trump didn’t literally mean they sat down and discussed how to create this group from scratch–or did he? Trump’s statement is 100% accurate, and a leaked memo from the State Department proves it to...

    Despite a historic opportunity for third parties to do well this presidential election, Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson seems determined to blow it. In the equivalent of shooting himself in the political foot, Johnson announced support for a deeply unpopular tax on emissions of carbon dioxide, or CO2, to stop alleged “climate change.” And he sought to deceive voters while doing it. While the former New Mexico governor framed the tax scheme as a “fee” and a “free-market approach,” even libertarians blasted the deception.The “fee,” as Johnson referred to his proposed tax in a perfect emulation of ObamaCare-style semantic deception,...

    The theory that Donald Trump is preparing for a defeat at the polls in November by planning to launch a media company is really picking up momentum. The rumors started swirling earlier this summer. After a few op-eds came out about the idea last week, CNN tackled it this weekend. Now that Fox News’ Sean Hannity has revealed himself to be informally advising Trump, The Young Turks took it on, too: Cenk Uygur mentioned in a broadcast that Hannity, Steve Bannon, and Roger Ailes, all of whom have been rumored — with varying levels of confirmation — are big in...

Now that Trump is the nominee and Rubio is running for re-election, his tone is different. He is no longer criticizing Trump, but he isn't exactly gushing praise.

When a reporter asked the Democratic presidential candidate about the story’s staying power as she walked away from a terse news conference in August 2015, the politician threw up her hands in exasperation. “Nobody talks to me about it other than you guys,” she hollered back. But a year later — and with just over three months until the election — Clinton is still being plagued by her decision to use a personal email account for work during her tenure as secretary of state....

His criticism of Clinton goes beyond "Crooked Hillary," and complaints about her use of a private email server as secretary of state and her foreign policy decisions.

    It’s true that on some of the most pressing of issues—immigration, trade, and foreign policy—Donald Trump’s “America First” positions are more align with traditional conservatism than are those of any other candidate. That is, they clash with the neoconservatism, the faux “conservatism,” that the GOP Establishment and its media apologists have promoted for decades as the genuine article. Yet this being said, in Trump’s nearly 70 years, until very recently, he has done little to nothing to indicate that he has so much as an awareness of the classical conservative tradition, much less a commitment to it. Even if he...

    As we enter the home stretch of the 2016 presidential race, there are a number of things the Republican nominee Donald Trump can do to help him bring home the gold, to use an Olympics analogy. During the past week he seems to have gotten back on track, and is putting behind him some of his previous missteps. But there’s still more he needs to do in order to win over some of the groups he’s ‘gotten out of sync’ with during his campaign. Trump has an uphill struggle to win over the women’s vote, which will be critical in...

    Congressional investigators have requested information on a lucrative, multi-million dollar federal contract awarded to Democratic campaign operatives connected to Hillary Clinton that raises questions of cronyism but also if the purported purpose of the spending is even legal.The $12.5 million advertising contract to GMMB, Inc., the firm that produced Barack Obama's campaign ads in 2008 and 2012 and is doing so for Hillary Clinton this cycle, drew notice last month when the Wall Street Journal reported the agency paying for the work, the Consumer Financial Protection Agency, is spending a greater portion of its budget on advertising than any other federal agency. Officials from...

    As the fall semester begins, parents, students, taxpayers and donors should be made aware of official college practices that should disgust us all. Hampshire College will offer some of its students what the school euphemistically calls "identity-based housing." That's segregated housing for students who — because of their race, culture, gender or sexual orientation — have "historically experienced oppression." I'd bet the rent money that Hampshire College will not offer Jewish, Irish, Polish, Chinese or Catholic students segregated housing. Because there is no group of people who have not faced oppression, Hampshire College is guilty of religious and ethnic discrimination...

    I've heard a lot from the Never Trumpers inside the GOP who say that Trump violates their “conservative values.” Most of them were Bush and Kasich supporters. So I have a question: Isn’t keeping your word a “conservative value”? Jeb Bush and Kasich and many of the other candidates took a solemn pledge to support the Republican nominee — and they did so in front of millions of Republican voters. Then they broke their word. Then they wonder why Americans are so angry and distrustful of careerist politicians. The Bush brigades are the worst...The people who gave us the Medicare...

    Hillary Clinton’s top campaign aide, and the woman who might be the future White House chief of staff to the first female US president, for a decade edited a radical Muslim publication that opposed women’s rights and blamed the US for 9/11. One of Clinton’s biggest accomplishments listed on her campaign website is her support for the UN women’s conference in Bejing in 1995, when she famously declared, “Women’s rights are human rights.” Her speech has emerged as a focal point of her campaign, featured prominently in last month’s Morgan Freeman-narrated convention video introducing her as the Democratic nominee. However,...

    Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Democratic strategist and long-time Clinton booster James Carville criticized those who call into question the dealing of the Clinton Foundation under Bill and Hillary Clinton because of potential conflicts of interest. Carville argued the pros outweighed the cons when it came to the Clinton Foundation raising money given the Clintons’ circumstances. “Look, the good would be that we wouldn’t be gabbing about it here,” Carville said. “The bad would be that we would be out hundreds of millions of dollars that are doing good. What the Clinton Foundation does is it takes money from rich...

    Donald Trump is ramping up outreach to blacks and Hispanics as he seeks to close a massive gap with Hillary Clinton among the minority voters who have shunned his campaign. In speeches and at rallies, the Republican presidential nominee is directly appealing to African-Americans for the first time, making the case that Democratic policies have harmed the black community. Trump is also reaching out to Hispanic voters, convening meetings with leaders in the community as he mulls making changes to what has been a hard-line stance on immigration that has been focused on building a wall on the Mexican border...
