    Donald Trump might not have been his first choice, but former House Speaker John Boehner says he will be voting for the Republican presidential nominee come November. “He is not a conservative. He’s barely a Republican,” Boehner said in an interview with Vice News, previewed Tuesday. “He kind of became a Republican in order to run.” Although Boehner contends that Trump lacks sufficient Republican bonafides, the former Ohio congressman said Trump’s ideas are more appealing to him than those of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton....

    Former Republican Attorney General Michael Mukasey has been one of the most vocal critics of Hillary Clinton over her email use, but he says Donald Trump’s threat to possibly jail her “is something that we don’t do here.” Mukasey, who served as the nation’s top law enforcement officer under President George W. Bush, told the Washington Post in an interview Monday that “it would be like a banana republic” if Trump followed through on his threat at Sunday night’s debate. …

    Male makeup gurus are having a moment, and James Charles Dickinson is adding another. The 17-year-old YouTube sensation, known simply as James Charles on social media, boasts more than 70,000 subscribers, which comparatively isn’t as much as some other major male beauty YouTubers, like Manny Gutierrez (Manny Mua) and Patrick Starrr (both nearing 2 million each). Still, it’s more than enough for CoverGirl, which announced Charles as its latest ambassador — and the first young man to receive such an honor.

    Newton, Iowa (CNN)Indiana Gov. Mike Pence dissuaded a female supporter Tuesday from starting a revolution in the wake of a Hillary Clinton victory in a passionate exchange here in Iowa during a town hall. The woman, who identified herself as Rhonda, expressed concern about voter fraud in the upcoming elections saying that she was scared of the outcomes. "Our lives depend on this election. Our kids' futures depend on this election and I will tell you just for me, and I don't want this to happen but I will tell you for me personally if Hillary Clinton gets in, I...
  • [SEPTEMBER 12, 2016] THE GEORGE W. BUSH WHITE HOUSE ‘LOST’ 22 MILLION EMAILS

    Clinton’s email habits look positively transparent when compared with the subpoena-dodging, email-hiding, private-server-using George W. Bush administration. Between 2003 and 2009, the Bush White House “lost” 22 million emails. Like Clinton, the Bush White House used a private email server—its was owned by the Republican National Committee. And the Bush administration failed to store its emails, as required by law, and then refused to comply with a congressional subpoena seeking some of those emails. “It’s about as amazing a double standard as you can get,” says Eric Boehlert, who works with the pro-Clinton group Media Matters. “If you look at...
  • The War Against Public Educaton (Education)

    These are dark days for public education in America. In many corners of the United States public education in our colleges and universities is under attack. Know-nothing state legislators, most of them of the Republican persuasion, seem bent on dismantling our public education system. Our system of public education has been the envy of the world. In recent times, though, many legislators, governors, and corporate administrators have demonstrated little or no respect for those of us who labor in the classrooms of our public schools. These folks don’t seem to care if our young adults learn how to read with...

    The Washington Times ^ | Tuesday, October 11, 2016 | Seth McLaughlin
    Donald Trump unleashed the fury of his Twitter account on his GOP critics Tuesday, accusing them of being fair-weather backers and insisting that he's better off without their "shackles," and he can now run the kind of campaign he wants. At first glance, though, the new Mr. Trump looked a lot like the old Mr. Trump -- with House Speaker Paul D. Ryan and Sen. John McCain targeted... "Disloyal R's are far more difficult than Crooked Hillary," he said in another tweet. "They come at you from all sides. They don't know how to win -- I will teach them!"...

More than a dozen local cops were sporting the red hats during their motorcycle escort of the Republican nominee to and from San Antonio International Airport, according to a video Trump posted on Twitter.

    Several “Think Different” posters portraying a rainbow Apple logo with a silhouette of Donald Trump’s face on it have appeared around San Francisco, including near both Twitter and Hillary Clinton’s campaign offices on National Coming Out Day today. The posters resemble colored versions of the black and white prints that were spotted in Hollywood, Los Angeles, last month, and appear to be the doing of the “Art Wing Conspiracy” group, who displayed their poster design at Lucian Wintrich’s pro-Trump art show, #DaddyWillSaveUs, last Saturday.

    MIAMI—Former Vice President Al Gore on Tuesday returned to the campaign trail in Florida, where his 537-vote loss cost him the White House in 2000, presenting himself as “exhibit A” on the importance of voting. “Please take it from me: Every single vote counts,” he told 1,600 people at a rally here with Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton. Mr. Gore reminded younger people in the audience that his loss to Republican George W. Bush was “very close”—so close that many Democrats believe the outcome would have been different if the Supreme Court hadn’t halted a recount of ballots.
  • Will next governor pave the way for more public-private partnerships?

    The Indiana Lawyer ^ | October 11, 2016 | Hayleigh Colombo, IBJ Staff
    The controversial 2006 lease of the Indiana Toll Road paved the way for highway projects funded by public-private partnerships in Indiana — including the relatively smooth and nearly finished building of a bridge over the Ohio River at Louisville and the beleaguered construction of a 21-mile stretch of Interstate 69 from Bloomington to Martinsville. Indiana’s next governor — whose road-funding agenda will likely shape discussions at next year’s budget session of the Indiana General Assembly — will have a major role in crafting future deals to fund projects and maintain the state’s infrastructure. The question is whether the state will...

    Oh anti-Catholicism. You’re always in vogue. And just what we needed to add to this wonderful election journey. Today, the anti-secrecy and disclosure site WikiLeaks released more than 1,000 emails as part of an ongoing leak of the hacked emails of John Podesta, chairman of Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Previously, Podesta worked as the President for the Center for American Progress, or CAP, and the Chief of Staff to President Bill Clinton. Within these leaked emails was a 2011 email thread titled “Conservative Catholicism” sent by CAP Senior Fellow John Halpin to Podesta and to Hillary for America Communications Director Jennifer...

    Britain wanted to create a formal task force to work with Norway on a post-Brexit free trade agreement, but the Norwegian rejected the overture according to a new report. Business daily Dagens Næringsliv reported that the UK’s international trade secretary, Liam Fox, lobbied his Norwegian counterpart, Minister of Trade and Industry Monica Mæland, for Norway to join the United Kingdom in establishing a task force to prepare a new trade agreement for when the Brits formally leave the EU. But when Fox’s request was relayed to the Norwegian Foreign Ministry, it was rejected. According to Dagens Næringsliv, the ministry’s director...

  • The next ‘deplorables’? Clinton campaign rips ‘backwards’ Catholic beliefs in leaked e-mails

    WASHINGTON, D.C., October 11, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – “Conservative Catholics” are the latest Americans to be smeared by members of Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s campaign, leaked emails revealed on Tuesday show. Catholic beliefs are bashed as “backwards” and conservative Catholics are termed responsible for “an amazing bastardization of the faith” in one of the more than 1,000 hacked emails from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta released Tuesday afternoon by WikiLeaks. “I imagine they think it is the most socially acceptable politically conservative religion,” writes Clinton campaign Director of Communications Jennifer Palmieri. “Their rich friends wouldn't understand if they became evangelicals.”...

    SAN ANTONIO — Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, speaking at a Tuesday fundraiser here, continued to call out members of his own party for not being fully supportive of him, including U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan, whom he accused of "total disloyalty to the party." Trump promised to "fight like hell" until Nov. 8 but expressed frustration with resistance in his own party — especially from Ryan, who announced Monday he would focus on down-ballot races in the home stretch to Election Day. Trump sharply contrasted his approach to the final weeks with that of the last GOP presidential ticket...

    Nearly 10,000 voters chanted “CNN sucks” during a campaign rally for Donald Trump in Pennsylvania Monday night. “I’m telling you, they are so dishonest. Without the media, Hillary Clinton couldn’t be elected dog catcher,” Trump stated. “CNN is a disgrace.” The Republican nominee then alleged that CNN turned off its camera as he was criticizing the network. “I love WikiLeaks,” Trump proclaimed, while bashing his opponent Hillary Clinton during the campaign rally in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania with nearly 10,000 people, according to Fox News, at the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza. WikiLeaks has been slowly revealing controversial emails from Clinton’s...
