The planning has evolved away from a focus solely on a more caustic rival, according to reporting from NBC's Kelly O'Donnell. Sources say, "We are betting now that most of our preparations are into dealing with the possible curve-ball that Trump comes out being more subdued."

    Breitbart ^ | September 25, 2016
    Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton gingerly navigated stairs and a curb as she slowly left a building to enter a vehicle in Manhattan Sunday afternoon, with several staffers and her security detail closely monitoring her progress. In a video taken by an ABC News reporter, Clinton emerges from the building, holding onto the door frame while two aides hold the door open — one above her, one below her. She then takes a sideways step towards the metal railing and slowly makes her way down the stairs with an apparent Secret Service agent behind her.

    Ah, there's nothing like a referendum or two to set the emotions swirling and stir up political havoc. Add a nasty election to the mix, and you have a savoury stew of rancid, small-state nationalism along Europe's southern flank. Let's start with the referendum vote in Republika Srpska, which took place on Sunday. This entity has a violent and sordid history. Officially it is part of Bosnia, and once it was part of Yugoslavia. Yugoslavia cracked apart into warring pieces in 1991. On Jan. 9, 1992 the self-declared Republika Srpska, made up almost entirely of Bosnian Serbs, asserted its "independence"...

    I grew up with guns. Along with my boyhood pals, I grew up coveting, collecting and running wild with guns. "Let's play guns!" was our sham battle cry during those innocent years, the 1940s and '50s. While girls were jumping rope and playing jacks, we boys were shooting up the neighborhood. Depending on the season, we were just as likely to have been playing baseball, basketball or football. But "guns" was our sport for all seasons, fair weather and foul, indoors and out. From prekindergarten years until adolescence, guns had a powerful grip on our imaginations and our sporting lives,...

    Is Hillary Clinton’s campaign pulling the plug on its hopes to win the batlleground state of battleground states: Ohio? That’s what CNN’s Jeff Zeleny wondered this morning as he noted Clinton has not been in the state since her epic Cleveland coughing fit on Labor Day.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSFZTd9PgRs “So long Ohio? It’s been 20 days Hillary Clinton has stepped foot into this class battleground state, and she’s not expected to visit it again in the month of September,” Zeleny said. But it’s not because the campaign believes she has it sewn up, but rather the opposite. “That is a nod to the...

Well, it appears that NBC has done exactly that. A comparison of both debate podiums reflects that one is visibly larger, and taller, than the other; and a debate standing platform is evident as the stage is being set up.

"If dopey Mark Cuban of failed Benefactor fame wants to sit in the front row, perhaps I will put Jennifer (sic) Flowers right alongside of him!" the GOP nominee tweeted Saturday. Within hours, Flowers announced that she would be happy to be there. The move by the Trump team appears to indicate that Trump will be bringing up former Pres.

The gun later was determined to be a BB gun. King’s death is highlighted in the letter from the NAACP, along with other Columbus police officer-involved shootings....

    They wrote that in a fair and just world, “there would be no pets at all, no fields full of sheep, and no barns full of pigs, cows and egg-laying hens. There would be no aquaria and no zoos.” “If animals matter morally, we must recalibrate all aspects of our relationship with them. The issue we must confront is not whether our exploitation of them is ‘humane’ — with all of the concomitant tinkering with the practices of animal-use industries — but rather whether we can justify using them at all,” they concluded.

    Colonial pipeline is investigating what caused a pipeline to leak nearly 336,000 gallons of gasoline into a man-made retention pond. That leak was discovered back on September 9th near Helena, Alabama after state workers noticed a strong smell of gas. The shutdown pipeline caused rising fuel prices amid gas shortages across the South. Investigators say the broke portion, built in 1963, has since been repaired. A preliminary report does not identify the cause of the break as the federal investigation continues.
