  • The case against Hillary Clinton

    NY Daily News ^ | 11/03/2016 | LISA SCHIFFREN
    By now, Hillary Clinton is as polished as politicians come. At 69, her hair is perfectly coiffed and colored, her makeup is subtle and her clothes are expensive. A trained debater, educated at Wellesley and Yale Law School, with decades of public life, she speaks well. In an election that she has framed around temperamental fitness for the presidency, her deliberate comments and careful parsing of words suggest that she possesses the steadiness and judgment required. That is the image we saw when she stood on a debate stage with the far less controlled, more hot-tempered Donald Trump. Clintons public...

    Its time for God to stop blessing America during the seventh-inning stretch. Welcome to the July 4 holiday weekend when once again, baseball fans will be assaulted by the saccharine-sweet non-anthem God Bless America at stadia all over this great land. But no matter which home team you root, root, root for, God Bless America should be sent permanently to the bench.

    But Frank Stelmach of Double Tap Shooting Range and Gun Shop invited me, videographer Michael Sheridan and reporter Adam Shrier to come down. Stelmach is not like many gun lovers. He admires his weaponry, yes, and has difficulty explaining why law-abiding citizens need a gun that can empty a 40-round magazine in a few seconds. But he also hates the idea that bad people get a hold of a gun like this and use it to kill without difficulty. There should be expanded background checks extending into your family, friends and associates, he said. And there should be a...

    It feels like a bazooka and sounds like a cannon. One day after 49 people were killed in the Orlando shooting, I traveled to Philadelphia to better understand the firepower of military-style assault weapons and, hopefully, explain their appeal to gun lovers. But mostly, I was just terrified. Many gun shops turned down our request to fire and discuss the AR-15, a style of semi-automatic rifle popular with mass killers such as San Bernardino terrorist Syed Farook and similar to the Sig Sauer MCX rifle used by Orlando terrorist Omar Mateen. Killers in mass shootings used AR-15, thanks to...

    There is no politician in recent memory who seems more a product of her handlers than Hillary Clinton. But her handlers in 2008 did hardly anything for her, and now you wonder if the reinforcements shes brought in this time are doing any better, or giving her better advice. Because all she continues to do is serve this whole thing up for Donald Trump. The other day she said that she was going to ask Bill Clinton to help her with the economy. She did this in a political season when Trump has sold himself two ways, apart from walls...

    Last Sunday, Krystal Lake, a 22-year-old Home Depot employee on Staten Island, was photographed wearing a hat that says, America Was Never Great. It's in the same font and style of Trump's campaign slogan of "Make America Great Again." Of course, death threats and hate mail targeting her have come pouring in which, if you think about it, lends itself to her feeling like she was right to wear the hat in the first place. About two months ago, I wrote a column about the word "again" in Trump's slogan. I think it's a racist dog whistle and it...

    For four decades, the National Rifle Association has pumped millions of dollars into federal elections, supporting both Republican and Democratic candidates who voted in accordance with the gun groups strict view of the Second Amendment. That era is over. During the last federal election cycle, in 2014, the gun groups spending on behalf of Democrats dwindled to virtually nothing, even as its overall election-related spending soared to more than $32 million, an analysis by the Daily News and The Trace found.

    It's been over a week since Bernie Sanders -- in an interview with the New York Daily News -- made arguably the most defamatory factual error of campaign 2016 by drastically inflating Gazan casualties in the 2014 Hamas-Israel war with a figure of "over 10,000 innocent people" allegedly killed by Israel. That number dwarfed those reported by the UN and even (amazingly) Hamas itself. Here's the transcript: Sanders: Look, why don't I support a million things in the world?

"We support the intent of the Executive Order, but to forcibly remove all homeless individuals in freezing weather, as the Governor has ordered, will require him to pass state law," de Blasio spokeswoman Karen Hinton said as Cuomo inked the order requiring people to go to shelters when temperatures are below 32 degrees.

    During these hectic weeks between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, many of us think a lot not only about family, but about food. As we gather around tables to talk, so many of our holiday rituals centers around eating: cranberry sauce at Thanksgiving, applesauce for Chanukah latkes, honey-glazed ham for Christmas and — especially in the South — black-eyed peas and greens for good luck on New Year’s Day. Kwanzaa literally translates to “first fruits.” Yet many of these holiday favorites are endangered, because the bees they depend upon are dying by the millions. You may have heard about this...

    There’s something the chattering classes along the Acela Corridor don’t want to say about Donald Trump: He’s the overwhelming favorite to win the Republican presidential nomination. For the Republican Party’s conservative — in more ways than one — establishment, it’s as if admitting that will make it come true. So instead, they squabble over who the “real” front-runner is, whether it’s Marco Rubio or Ted Cruz. Perhaps, the parlor wisdom holds, a dark horse like Chris Christie can overtake the field at the New Hampshire turn. For the first few months, the Trump deniers — loud on national television, insistent...

It was also a development, according to mob experts, that ultimately speeded up the demise of the five mob families in New York City.

    A security video showing a mob of students brutally beating two high schoolers in a Philadelphia subway station on Tuesday is being investigated by the citys transportation officers. Its an outrageous event. This is so dangerous, its not even funny, Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority Police Chief Thomas J. Nestel III told Philly.com. We have operating trains down there. There are passengers waiting for the train ... its horrendous. The video, which was time-stamped around 3:15 p.m., shows about a dozen teenagers either participating in a one-minute assault on two male students, or cheering it on. One of the assailants falls...

    Officers in Framingham, Mass. swarmed a home Tuesday morning with guns drawn, shouted for its residents to come out, searched inside and then realized the bust was a bust. This home was the latest victim of "swatting," a prank where an anonymous caller tricks police into sending a heavy presence to a quiet home that has no crime happening inside. In this case, Framingham resident Irandi Waighe and her 96-year-old mother-in-law who is a double amputee in a wheelchair were the ones awakened to a false alarm. The call came in around 8 a.m. from a blocked...

    He's the hero Baltimore deserves and, for better or worse, the one it needs right now. A man built like a brick house, wearing a surgical mask and wielding a machete, has been dubbed the "Baltimore Batman" for taking justice into his own hands when chaos came over Baltimore during protests over the death of Freddie Gray. Brian Woodyard who has the same initials as Bruce Wayne said he'd warded off dozens of rioters from The Old Clubhouse, a bar where he works, fittingly, as a bouncer.

    Konstantin Sivkov has previously spoken about expecting to see American society "decay" and has elaborate plans for how that could happen.What would happen if the Russians tried to launch nuclear bombs onto American soil, aiming to trigger a giant tsunami or the eruption of a supervolcano? That was precisely the plan one Russian military analyst laid out to combat the West, and it's fit for a Superman comic book or an Eisnehower-era James Bond caper. "The consequences will be catastrophic for the United States a country just disappears," Konstantin Sivkov, director of the Academy of Geopolitical Problems in Moscow,...

    George Zimmerman's Twitter trolling has reached a new low. Days after retweeting an image of Trayvon Martin's corpse, Zimmerman went on a depraved Twitter tirade Monday afternoon, spewing racist rants and boasting about "mocking all you trolls." The man who shot and killed Martin three years ago also gave out an apparent stranger's phone number, referring "all media inquiries" to the unsuspecting man.

    Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura thinks he and presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders would make a good tag team Former Minnesota Governor and retired pro wrestler Jesse (The Body) Ventura is into Bernie Sanders. Ventura stirred up controversy last month by hinting he might be interested in serving as Donald Trumps vice president, but the fiercely independent rabble rouser told Confidenti@l that a Sanders/Ventura ticket might be a better fit. Would I run with Bernie? Sure, Id give him consideration, Ventura tells Confidenti@l, reasoning that Sanders, quickly gaining traction, is the candidate most likely to bring our troops back from the...

    At age 60 and weighing 130, the once-rotund Sharpton is almost underweight, and he says he's never hungry. His 'secret': Less food, more exercise. He hasnt had any sweets in years. He hasnt had dinner in years, either. Call it the Al Sharpton Diet, but this once-rotund reverend has dropped from 305 pounds to exactly 129.6 pounds. The precise weight was recorded this week on Sharptons bedroom scale at 5 a.m., when the man of the (much less) cloth begins his day. Sharpton has shed 60% of his much-mocked weight and he did it without surgery, diet pills or...

    The brouhahas over billionaire Donald Trump show how broadcasters favor easy, juicy stories about powerful peoples bad words over harder, less sexy ones about their bad deeds. This is a teachable moment for the mass media. Failing to take Trump seriously could set a dangerous precedent for future candidates with fresh ideas, looking to shake up the controlling status quo. The Huffington Post, which carries my column, announced that it is excluding Trump from its political coverage and instead filing all stories about the man leading the Republican field, according to the most recent polls, under entertainment. If they existed...

    NEW YORK (AP) NBC News has assigned the head of its own investigative unit to look into statements that anchor Brian Williams made about his reporting in Iraq a dozen years ago, an episode that's ballooned into a full-blown credibility crisis for the network. NBC News President Deborah Turness announced the probe in an internal memo on Friday. Williams has apologized for falsely saying on the air that he was in a helicopter hit by a rocket-propelled grenade while in Iraq in 2003, and Turness said Friday the anchor expressed his regrets to his colleagues for the impact the...

    The leftwing New York Daily News blasted President Obama on its cover Thursday morning. Referring to the federal government's appallingly incompetent response to the American Ebola outbreak, the front page headline next to the president's photo read, "For God's Sake, Get a Grip." After three weeks of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) happy talking its Ebola preparedness and wrist-flicking the potential threat, 3 people in America have been infected with Ebola, two nurses and the man they cared for -- who died last week.
