  • MANY [HALF] DONORS TO CLINTON FOUNDATION MET WITH HER AT STATE

    AP ^ | 23 August 2016 | STEPHEN BRAUN AND EILEEN SULLIVAN
    More than half the people outside the government who met with Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state gave money - either personally or through companies or groups - to the Clinton Foundation. It's an extraordinary proportion indicating her possible ethics challenges if elected president. At least 85 of 154 people from private interests who met or had phone conversations scheduled with Clinton while she led the State Department donated to her family charity or pledged commitments to its international programs, according to a review of State Department calendars released so far to The Associated Press. Combined, the 85...

    Edward-Isaac Dovere writes in Politico that President Obama is eschewing any appearance at the final annual meeting of the scandal-plagued Clinton Global Initiative. The Clinton Global Initiative is shutting down, but President Barack Obama won’t be there to say farewell. Though Obama will be in New York the week in mid-September, he’s skipping an appearance at the annual— and final — meeting of Bill Clinton’s post-presidential project, which brought together business and world leaders for the last 12 years. Obama attended for either a speech or other event every year for the first six of his presidency until 2015, following...

    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...

To McAllister, a former Marine staff sergeant and scout sniper instructor, the war he fought was a harebrained mission planned by Republicans, rubber-stamped by Democrats and, in the end, lost to al-Qaeda’s brutal successor. The foreign policy establishment of both parties got his friends killed for no reason, he said, so come Election Day, he is voting for the man he believes answers to...

    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump urged for the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton's involvement with the Clinton Foundation during her tenure as US secretary of state during a rally in Akron, Ohio, on Monday. Trump accused his Democratic rival of corruption, claiming that donors of the foundation were given preferential treatment and awarded with special favors. He went on to say that the investigation calls for special circumstances, as the US Department of Justice "has proven itself to be a political arm of the White House." "After the FBI and Department of Justice whitewash of the...

We are going to force the conversation to issues, because the issues favor Donald Trump."Conway may just have what it will take to win that war. Two decades of...

    The latest in the email scandal plaguing the campaign of Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has provided proof of what many on the right have known all along — that then-Secretary of State Clinton left Americans to die in Benghazi. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta gave testimony in 2013 stating that there was no time to get help to Benghazi, Libya on Sept. 11, 2012, where four Americans died. An email obtained by Judicial Watch and recently released appears to be in direct contradiction of this claim. Fox News reported that an urgent email from Panetta’s Chief of Staff Jeremy Bash...

    Under the guise of providing increased “security” for “critical infrastructure,” the Obama administration is plotting to insert itself and the federal government into the American elections process. While voting is constitutionally the responsibility of state and local officials, Obama's Homeland Security Secretary, Jeh Johnson, pointed to the alleged threat of cyberattacks to justify the latest proposed usurpation of power. The controversial scheme was floated amid growing national concerns, fueled in part by GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump's warnings of a “rigged” election, that America's electoral system might be vulnerable to major manipulation. Critics and experts, though, warned that the White...

But his campaign team wouldn't release a photo he took with police officers who joined him at the shooting range, and individual officers weren't allowed to shoot their own pictures with the presidential candidate, an officer told DailyMail.com.

    Republican Donald Trump is surging with African American voters and gaining more support from Latino voters than Mitt Romney and John McCain. The latest LA Times Daybreak poll has Hillary up by just six-tenths of a point. Trump is surging with black voters and doing better with Latino voters than Romney or McCain. In the last ten presidential election cycles the highest black vote share for a Republican was 12% for Bob Dole in 1996. Trump has 14.6% of the black vote in today’s LA Times poll. If Donald Trump captured 25 percent of the African American vote he would...
  • Tim Kaine Once Said Cheating Politicians Should Resign—Including Bill Clinton

    The Democratic vice presidential candidate is pretty much part of the Clinton family at this point. But in 2002, he said Bill Clinton should have stepped down in the wake of his affair with a White House intern. Bill Clinton should have resigned over the Monica Lewinsky scandal—at least, that’s a view Tim Kaine once held. Kaine’s remark—reported 14 years ago in the Richmond Times-Dispatch in the aftermath of a state-level sex scandal—hasn’t drawn any attention thus far in the 2016 presidential cycle. But it suggests Hillary Clinton’s running mate at one point harbored reservations about the integrity of the...

    "Today, Mr. Trump convened a meeting of some of the top foreign policy and national security experts in the country to discuss how to win the war against Radical Islamic Terrorism. The participants talked about improving immigration screening and standards to keep out radicals, working with moderate Muslims to foster reforms, and partnering with friendly regimes in the Middle East to stamp out ISIS. This is a stark contrast to Hillary Clinton who wants to bring in 620,000 refugees with no way to screen them, who refuses to say radical Islam, and who bears direct responsibility for the rise of...
  • Obama Accepts "Surge" Of 8,000 Syrian Refugees - More Than All Of Europe (And Hillary Wants More)

    Despite "heroic" promises to accept 160,000 Syrian refugees, European Union member states have only accepted 6,000 to date while the US alone has already admitted 8,000 of the 10,000 promised. So in light of recent terrorist attacks this begs the question is the U.S. being honorable or just dumb? According to Nayla Rush of the Center for Immigration Studies the answer might just be the latter (although she's far more polite than we are): excerpt at source Given the inability to properly vet refugees, even the New York Times has questioned Obama's logic after a number of refugees have been...

  • Clinton Looks to Dreamers To Destroy Trump’s Wall

    It’s no secret that Democrats really want to dominate with the Hispanic demographic. It contributed to their victory over Mitt Romney in 2012, and with Trump proudly declaring he’ll build a wall to keep out illegal immigrants—they view winning these folks again to be a cakewalk. There’s also a bit of trolling going on, especially since Hillary Clinton tapped an illegal alien to assist in Hispanic voter outreach. She’s also reaching out to “Dreamers,” children brought over into the United States illegally, along with their parents (via Associated Press): The 730,000 young people brought to the U.S. as children without...
  • How Bloomberg Spun its Own Poll Data to Make Hillary Clinton Seem Inevitable

    Liberty Blitzkrieg ^ | 08/16/16 | Michael Krieger
    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%...

    Freefall Remember when Democrats, still in the midst of shoving ObamaCare down the throats of an unwilling nation, argued that it would actually be “market-based”? Democrats don’t know anything about how truly free markets work, of course, but their argument was that the ObamaCare exchanges were basically competitive marketplaces in which consumers could shop for the insurance that would make sense for them. OK, granted, it’s a marketplace operating under the artificially imposed and completely insane parameters imposed by the government. And OK, what we commonly call health “insurance” isn’t really anything like a real insurance product. And OK, the...
