    Heading into tonight’s debates the theme for the evening has already been set by the media, along with everyone else who has been hoping that a giant sinkhole would open up and swallow Donald Trump like some sort of low rent Mothra in a budget Godzilla film. This narrative rests on the assumption that the video of Trump’s now infamous Bus Ride with Billy was the straw that broke the camel’s back and “everyone is fleeing the sinking ship.” Over at The Hill they’re keeping a running WHIP list of politicians who are pulling their support for the nominee.

    So…….Let’s review the bidding. At the first presidential debate, Hillary Clinton “pulled a Harry Reid.” As Reid did with Mitt Romney, Hillary used a softball question from the “moderator” Lester Holt to speculate on Donald Trump’s tax returns. In particular, Clinton hypothesized that Trump paid little or no income taxes. But unlike with Harry Reid presto! Within a week, the New York Times reveals a “news flash” that, based on huge losses of over $912 million reported in 1995 on what appears to be an illegally leaked tax return, Trump may have applied those losses in a way that resulted...

    BERLIN — WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is promising “significant” disclosures on subjects including the U.S. election and Google in the coming weeks as the organization marks its 10th anniversary. Assange, speaking by video link to an anniversary news conference in Berlin, said Tuesday that WikiLeaks plans to start a series of publications this week, but wouldn’t specify the timing and subject. He says the group hopes “to be publishing every week for the next 10 weeks” and the leaks include “significant material” on war, arms, oil, Google and the U.S. election.

The reason for the shift in location and the fact that Assange will not appear live? “Specific information,” presumably about a credible threat. Assange has been hinting for some time that the proverbial “October surprise” for Hillary would have a huge impact on the viability of her presidential campaign. He appeared on Fox News last...

    WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will no longer deliver the highly-anticipated “October surprise” announcement from the balcony of the Ecuadorian embassy in London because of “security concerns,” NBC News’ Jesse Rodriguez first reported. Instead, the 45-year-old whistleblower may unveil the details of the political revelation--which he hinted could prove “devastating” to the Clinton campaign-- during a video press conference from Berlin Tuesday morning. Before the venue change, Trump surrogate Roger Stone tweeted on Sunday that Hillary Clinton would be “done” on Wednesday following the disclosure of the WikiLeak findings.

So it was striking that on today’s Morning Joe, Halperin, with some prodding from Joe Scarborough, suggested that Donald Trump might be planning a big October surprise in the nature of a “revelation” about Hillary Clinton. One sensed that Halperin had some inside knowledge of the situation, though all he mentioned in support of his theory is that Trump is surrounded by...

That gambit is known as the “pay-to-play” scandal. Give the foundation a big fat donation, and Hillary will open whatever door you need opened. In fact, as secretary, she approved a now-famous deal that granted the Russians control over 20 percent of uranium production here in the United States. Despite all of this, Hillary, as usual, got off scot-free. But while she may think...

But based on past U.S. handling of foreign-sponsored cyberassaults, it could take months or even years to mount such a response — action that could encompass anything from public shaming or economic sanctions to indictments or retaliatory hacking. Even the most optimistic timeline, according to interviews with former security and law enforcement officials, could delay a forceful U.S....

    Next year will be the most consequential presidential election in two generations.

On the other hand, Democrats had a good chance to win in 1988, taking on an uninspiring successor to a twice-victorious incumbent. Indeed, the Democratic nominee was ahead in the polls into the summer of 1988. But that nominee was Michael Dukakis. Are we sure the GOP isn't on course to nominating their very own Dukakis?
