Thankfully, we donít have to go too far back in time. How about just last week as Clinton appeared with Al Gore in Miami, FL.

    Among all the recent WikiLeaks email dumps, perhaps the most important one of all has been overlooked by the mainstream media. In it, Neera Tanden, Hillary Clintonís longtime political guru, warned campaign manager John Podesta not to raise the question of primary opponent Bernie Sandersí health because it would draw unwanted attention to the hidden truth about Hillaryís health. [SNIP] Among Hillaryís friends, it is common knowledge that she suffers from tension headaches, sits with her feet elevated, nods off to sleep while studying her speeches, gets dizzy and has frequently stumbled and fallen at her home in Chappaqua.

    Half a dozen news outlets skipped posting snap polls after the second 2016 presidential debate on Sunday ó most likely because Donald Trump touted his dominance of their polls after the first debate in September. The first presidential debate was a tough one for Republican presidential candidate Trump, but he publicly declared victory by citing a slew of unscientific online polls where respondents said he beat his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton. The Daily Mail rounded up the results of many of these snap polls, as well, with a headline blaring ďTrump won debate by a landslide.Ē

    The season of ďthe October surpriseĒ is hard upon us, but this year weíre getting the October surprise on the installment plan. Thereís a medium-sized surprise with the morning paper every day. The New York Times delivered what it thought would be the A-bomb late last week, with the news that Donald Trump had used the tax laws to count losses against tax liabilities to defer paying $916 million in taxes. This October surprise was apparently meant to suggest that the Donald was either an incompetent businessman and couldnít be the rich man he says he is, to run up...

    Hillary Clinton is facing new questions over whether she brought her personal doctor, Lisa Bardack, to the 9/11 memorial where she collapsed. The Democratic candidate had a woman at her side throughout her time there - and as she was escorted away, the woman appeared to check Clinton's pulse. She also held Clinton's hand in a way which it has been suggested may have been some sort of neurological test.

    The Daily Caller ^ | December 30, 2015 | Stewart Lawrence
    For years Democrats have claimed a "gender gap" advantage over the GOP because women tend to support their party's candidates in disproportionately high numbers. The last two presidential elections clearly illustrate this pattern. In 2008, Obama ran nearly even with John McCain among men but captured female voters by a whopping 14 point margin. And in 2012, while losing male voters to Mitt Romney by 8 points, Obama's 12-point margin with women guaranteed his re-election. But it turns out that Republicans have their own version of the gender gap. The basic idea is to substantially out-perform the Democrats among men...

    An unusual time-lapse video made by a Washington, D.C. nonprofit fundraiser and his friends shows former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton aging from her teen years to the present. Clinton, 67, is the presumptive Democratic White House front-runner and would be 69 years and 86 days old if she were to become president after the 2016 elections.

    Last week raised important questions about whether Barack Obama is strong enough to be president. On the domestic political front, he showed incredible weakness in dealing with the Clintons, while on foreign and defense questions, he betrayed a lack of strength and resolve in standing up to Russiaís invasion of Georgia. This two-dimensional portrait of weakness underscores fears that Obama might, indeed, be a latter-day Jimmy Carter. Consider first the domestic and political. Bill and Hillary Clinton have no leverage over Obama. Hillary canít win the nomination. She doesnít control any committees. If she or her supporters tried to disrupt...

    Barack Obama made an impassioned appeal to voters last night to end Hillary Clinton's dreams of another comeback in the race for the White House. The Illinois senator told Democrat voters heading to the polls today in Indiana and North Carolina: "I need help." With less than a month to go before the state-by-state vote ends, the Obama camp is desperate to finish off Mrs Clinton's campaign to become the Democrat's presidential nominee. Barack Obama is desperate to beat Hillary Clinton, so much so that he is counting on support from celebrities including Tom Hanks. Mr Obama, 46, also broke...

    The Massachusetts Democratic primary, along with nearly two dozen other primaries and caucuses, was held on Feb. 5.

    The Rev. Jeremiah Wright couldn't have done more damage to Barack Obama's campaign if he had tried. And you have to wonder if that's just what one friend of Wright wanted. Shortly before he rose to deliver his rambling, angry, sarcastic remarks at the National Press Club Monday, Wright sat next to, and chatted with, Barbara Reynolds. A former editorial board member at USA Today, she runs something called Reynolds News Services and teaches ministry at the Howard University School of Divinity. (She is an ordained minister). It also turns out that Reynolds - introduced Monday as a member of...
