    Donald Trump said Thursday he doesn't want the support of white supremacists amid accusations from rival Hillary Clinton that he's allowing hate to go "mainstream." "Do you want white supremacists to vote for you?" New Hampshire's WMUR asked the GOP presidential nominee in Manchester, where Trump held an event Thursday. "No, I don't at all, not at all," Trump responded, as highlighted by a CNN reporter. "This is not about hate, this is about love," Trump continued. "We love our country. We want our country to come back. We want our country to be strong again." Clinton launched into an...
  • Outside Haim Saban fundraiser for Hillary Clinton, Black Lives Matter protests for Palestinians

    08/25/2016 4:49:07 PM PDT · by 2ndDivisionVet · 3 replies
    Black Lives Matters reportedly was among several groups protesting on behalf of Palestinian rights outside a fundraiser for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton hosted by the Israeli-American billionaire Haim Saban and his wife, Cheryl. Monday’s event in Southern California at the Beverly Park home of the entertainment mogul brought in $5 million, the Jewish Insider reported, citing CNN. Some 80 people attended the fundraiser, paying $100,000 per couple, according to Variety. Saban has been one of Clinton’s principal backers for several years. The Sabans have already contributed nearly $10 million to super PACs supporting Clinton’s candidacy, according to the Jewish...

    A national poll out Thursday shows Hillary Clinton ahead of Donald Trump by double-digits. The poll also breaks down support by religion and finds that white Protestants are Trump’s most supportive demographic. The Public Religion Research Institute found that Clinton leads nationwide among registered voters with 48 percent, Trump follows with 35 percent and two percent backed Libertarian Gary Johnson. This poll, unlike others, broke down support for each candidate by registered voters’ religious preferences. Trump’s support is strongest among white evangelical Protestants. Sixty-two percent of them back Trump and 23 percent support Clinton. Trump also leads among white mainline...

    As a growing tide of Republicans distance themselves from their party’s presidential nominee, at least one Democratic candidate is doing the same thing to Hillary Clinton. West Virginia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jim Justice said “I cannot be a supporter of Hillary Clinton” during an appearance Monday on the state’s MetroNews radio network. Justice, a billionaire whose business interests include coal mining and West Virginia’s famed Greenbrier Resort, said he will not support the former secretary of state over her proposed energy policy. “The reason I can’t be is her position on coal is diametrically, completely wrong in many, many different...

Nor is the campaign setting up the kind of war room employed last year to discredit a book that aimed to expose a quid-pro-quo relationship between Clinton Foundation donors and State Department officials. With 75 days until Election Day and new emails once again casting a pall over her campaign, Hillary Clinton aims to “run out the clock,” confidants say, on the latest chapters of...

Yet the polls still show Clinton the favorite to win the White House. “Clinton’s chance of winning is more than 95 percent,” Reuters proclaimed Wednesday, citing a weekly Ipsos poll of 15,000 Americans and giving the Democrat a victory margin of anywhere from 90 to 108 votes in the Electoral College....

A new Florida Atlantic University survey released on Wednesday shows the Republican presidential nominee leading his Democratic counterpart 43 percent to 41 percent, which is within the survey’s margin of error. Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson captures 8 percent, and 5 percent are undecided. This is the first poll showing Trump leading Clinton in the Sunshine State since early July, according to RealClearPolitics polling....

Speaking to a few thousand people in Tampa Wednesday, Trump called African Americans 'great people' and promised to address their concerns by addressing failing schools and lost jobs. 'To the African American voter – great people. To the Hispanic voter who have been absolutely treated terribly, I say: What do you have to lose? What?' Trump said. 'I will fix it.

"The State Department said that they have to release 15,000 emails by — the deadline is a couple of days before the debate," Kimmel said. "Are you concerned about that?" "No," Clinton responded.

During an interview on "Newsmax Prime," Zogby told host J.D. Hayworth the race for the White House is "very, very close."

    Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, an adviser for Donald Trump's campaign, renewed rumors that something is wrong with Hillary Clinton's health. Talking to Shannon Bream on 'Fox News Sunday,' Giuliani suggested that the media was covering up 'several signs of illness' that he believed the former secretary of state was displaying. 'All you have to do is go online,' Giuliani said. 'Go online and put down "Hillary Clinton's illness." Take a look at the videos for yourself.' Giuliani was referring to a number of right-wing conspiratorial videos that suggest the 68-year-old Clinton is plagued by a number of...

    A federal judge is ordering Hillary Clinton to respond to questions in writing from the conservative legal watchdog Judicial Watch about the private email server she used as secretary of State. Judicial Watch, which has filed a lawsuit against Clinton over her email use, has sought to force Clinton to answer questions in person, which would have allowed attorneys to ask follow-up questions. U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan turned that request aside, however, ruling "less burdensome" efforts were required. "Judicial Watch’s argument that a deposition is preferable in this case because of the ability to ask follow-up questions is not...

Guys on the assembly line, whose jobs are either being stolen by the Chinese or strangled to death by Obama’s regulations. If globalization has put your livelihood in jeopardy, Trump wants you on his side. And given his sky-high popularity among white men without a college degree, I’d argue this pitch is gaining traction. But here’s the weird thing: Folks in hard-hit industrial towns aren’t voting for Trump. When Michigan Republicans went to the polls in March, economists expected to see huge...

A day earlier Louisiana’s governor, John Bel Edwards, had warned Trump not to show up in Louisiana “for a photo op”. Instead, he said, Trump should volunteer and make donations.

But, the spokesperson took a swipe at Trump, saying he didn’t want him to show up with cameras and not actually help victims. “Donald Trump hasn’t called the governor to inform him of his visit,” Edwards’ spokesman said. “We welcome him to LA but not for a...

First, it was said that he got into the race simply to garner publicity, to burnish his "brand." He himself, it was said, was surprised that he did so well in the primaries. When it became clear that he was poised to win the nomination, the story changed slightly. Now, he was said to be playing the buffoon because...

    The conventional wisdom doesn’t apply to such an unconventional nominee.Donald Trump won the Republican presidential nomination in part because his primary campaign message was far more in tune with an angry electorate than that of his rivals. However, Trump’s winning campaign was also helped mightily by a “Fatal Eight” set of miscalculations made by the opposition. These key mistakes included treating Trump as a mere celebrity rather than a serious candidate, failing to strategically attack the fledgling Trump candidacy in its crib, refusing to recognize that a candidate with a solid base can win in a crowded field even with...

The Mercers, who previously put $13.5 million into a super-PAC supporting Ted Cruz's bid against Trump, have recently converted the group into the Defeat Crooked Hillary PAC, targeting Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Robert Mercer has reportedly made a “substantial” additional investment of at least...

The Trump campaign, by comparison, has spent zero dollars. Even the two third-party presidential candidates, Green Party nominee Jill Stein and Libertarian Party nominee Gary...

    Parents of two Benghazi victims have sued Hillary Clinton, arguing that she caused the death of their sons and later defamed them in statements made to the media, according to court documents. “During her campaign for President, Defendant Clinton has negligently, recklessly, and/or maliciously defamed Plaintiffs by either directly calling them liars, or by strongly implying that they are liars, in order to protect and enhance her public image and intimidate and emotionally harm and silence them not to speak up about the Benghazi attack on at least four separate occasions,” Larry Klayman, an attorney for the families, wrote in...

    It’s a 100% photoshopped image (link) assembling multiple rally crowd pictures to give the impression of Hillary Clinton in St. Petersburg. Hillary is holding a rally at the St. Pete Colliseum in down town St. Petersburg. Located at 353 4th Ave North, the Coliseum venue holds approximately 4,000 people. Hillary Clinton didn’t come close to filling it:

    Nationally syndicated radio and HLN television host Dr. Drew Pinsky said he’s concerned about the “sophistication” of the healthcare that Democrat frontrunner Hillary Clinton is receiving. “Why is somebody who’s running for the President of the United States getting such shoddy care?” Drew stressed on KABC’s Midday Live. “My problem is the quality of the overall care she is getting,” he added.

    The RNC, the Republican Party elite, is currently dealing with the consequences of its own stupidity (which I would have used as the title, if I hadn’t used it before.) Their hatred for Donald Trump is not based on ideology, personality or even a genuine concern that Trump is the reincarnation of Adolf Hitler. It is the far more understandable sense that Trump’s success has rendered them irrelevant, that Trump has literally stolen the Republican Party from under their noses. And that is precisely what Trump has done. They are caught between a number of options, all bad for them...

    Johnson and one of his rivals, presumptive Green Party nominee Jill Stein, sued the commission last September, alleging violations of antitrust law and the First Amendment. Johnson and Stein are seeking spots on the all-important presidential debate stage this fall. But federal judge Rosemary M. Collyer threw out the lawsuit on Friday. In mid-September, the commission will add up five national polls and invite the candidates who are averaging at least 15% support. The first debate is scheduled to take place on Monday, September 26.
  • (VANITY) Another Reason To Be Wary Of Polls.Some Only Poll Hundreds And Hillary Leads?

    Let's take the state of Pennsylvania for example.A recent poll there gave Hillary a ten/twelve point lead.But did anyone observe that only about 800 to 900 people were polled out of about 6 Million potential voters? This is just one reason we are all suspicious of all these new polls giving Hillary a commanding lead. CNN? NBC? Really? We all know they generally over sample Democrats. Something just isn't right about these latest polls. Trump has always had at least 45%, no way he has dropped to 39%.

    Donald Trump and his team have upped their game to win the race for the White House by hiring the company that got the Brexit message to millions, resulting in the split of Great Britain from the European Union. Cambridge Analytica is a marketing film that targets voters (and potential donors) based on their unconscious psychological biases.

    A FEW OBSERVATIONS: Trump endorsed Paul Ryan, John McCain and Senator Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire. I guess even a Non-Political Politician has to play the Game somewhat, if he or she hopes to win. And if this is part of the Game Trump has to play to get these two Political creatures (Ryan and McCain) off his back – SO BE IT. But personally, I wouldn’t have endorsed either of them. But I’m not about to join the crowd of Trump Second Guessers. As you all know, who read this BLOG regularly, I have ZERO regard for John McCain,...

    "A message from Devan Cierra Ebert, who other attendees confirmed to be the mother at the Ashburn rally, was shared on Facebook. In her statement, she said, “Mr. Trump NEVER kicked me or my child out of the Briar Woods High School, Trump rally.” “The media has severely blown this out of proportion and made it out to be something that it wasn’t and is clearly using this as political gain for the Democratic Party. I hope this message sheds light to what really happened,” she said. No one from the press spoke with the mother before running their stories,...
