Until this summer, Arctic sea ice prevented luxury cruise ships from using the famed Northwest Passage. The sea route, which connects the northern Pacific and the Northern Atlantic via the Arctic Ocean across the north coast of the North American Continent, was known for centuries to explorers seeking a possible trade route.

The Arctic ice pack, however, prevented any use of the route for trade or other purposes until 2009, when marine shipping began to be possible due to the rapid melting of Arctic sea ice. This melting has been one of the most dramatic and obvious impacts of runaway anthropogenic climate disruption (ACD).

The best way to protect Hillary from criminal prosecution is to give every one in her inner circle immunity from prosecution allowing them to willfully lie and obstruct without fear of repercussions; they are immunized.

FBI Gave Immunity to 5 Clinton Aides Who Lied

This is how it works in a rigged system where law enforcement are obligated to the politicians that they were appointed/hired by.  Americans were led to believe that the FBI was conducting and objective/impartial investigation of Hillary and friends which now turns out to have been another fabrication by the political Establishment to obstruct justice and allow Hillary to avoid prosecution;

Elizabeth Warren has asked the Obama White House to explain why not one banker has gone to jail under his watch?

The Clinton Foundation has taken large sums from Wells Fargo.

Last year, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that the Wells Fargo Foundation had given between $100,000 and $250,000 to the Clinton Foundation. The Huffington Post adds:

Wells Fargo, both the bank and its foundation, have given generously to the Clinton Foundation over the years. The bank has given between $10,001 and $25,000, and the foundation has given between $100,001 To $250,000. In 2011, former President Bill Clinton gave a speech to Wells Fargo for $200,000.

“This is classic Hillary Clinton: publicly criticizing a company because it’s good politics while the Clinton Foundation quietly accepts hundreds of thousands of dollars from that same company,” said Jeff Bechdel, communications director of the conservative America Rising PAC. “If Clinton truly meant what she wrote, her letter would have been accompanied by a check from her family foundation returning the money from the company she is hypocritically complaining about.”

Thus far, there is no indication that the Clintons intend to return the money to Wells Fargo.

Clinton’s rival during the primary campaign, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), pressed her to release the transcripts of her speeches to other Wall Street banks. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has reiterated that call. Clinton has not complied.

At worse Trump portrays and projects the attitudes and beliefs of a large number of Americans; many of them women who are Democrats supporting Hillary.


The fact that the U.S. government regularly posts guidelines for a healthy body mass index (BMI) based on the principle that chronic diseases associated with being overweight contribute to high health care costs The government conspires in perpetuating the idea that weight-related illnesses could be prevented if only the obese would just stop eating so much and become more active. The element of choice, then, is a significant factor to some, in the perception that overweight people deserve whatever negative treatment they get.

However, becoming overweight is a state that people do not necessarily choose or even want to change, and like age, people may become the targets of their own discrimination. When they do, they’re in the same predicament as are older adults except that now it’s because of something others believe they did rather than because they simply existed on the planet for more years than others.

Negative attitudes toward people whose BMI runs on the high side becomes a matter of concern for the people who fit this description as well as the people who fit the very opposite characterization. Preoccupation with having an ideal body type, which in our society is thin for women and muscular for men, can in extreme cases lead people to develop an eating disorder or to become “exercise-aholics” who can’t stop working out.

It’s interesting to ponder the question of why our body’s shape and size carry so much social meaning, but it seems to be an inevitable feature of the human condition. If it weren’t there would be no explanation for why we spend so much and work so hard tomaintain our appearance. Whatever the cause, the fact that external appearance becomes so important in swaying our self-esteem makes us highly vulnerable to treatment that belittles the way we look.

That they “choose” to weigh more than they “should” is one element of the discrimination against the overweight. Whey they eat too much becomes another crucial element. Their lack of control over the eating habits that produce their large shape ties in to the social belief that they are morally deficient, prey to the deadly sin of gluttony.

“Fat” jokes may still be around, then, because their targets seem to be fair game. Yet, not everyone either tells those jokes or finds them funny. According to the disposition theory of humor (Zillmann & Cantor, 1972), people find are more likely to laugh at jokes about a group toward which they discriminate. On top of this, the theory of downward social comparison suggests that we can make ourselves feel better by comparing ourselves to someone of lower status. In our weight-obsessed society, this causes us to look down on the overweight.

Social psychologists Jacob Burmeister and Robert Carels, of Bowling Green State University (2015) believe that the influences of anti-fat attitudes on seeing fat jokes as funny are similar to the sexist influences on jokes about women. When you put gendertogether with weight status, the jokes can become even more vicious because they combine these two potent sources of discrimination.

TV and movies disproportionately target overweight adults, according to the review of studies by Burmeister and Carels. Even YouTube videos, they note, commonly target the overweight, as do the comments made by viewers to these videos. To determine what factors influence the perceptions of weight-related jokes, the Bowling Green psychologists measured whether people with anti-fat attitudes would find such humor funnier. They also tested the opposite reaction of being disgusted at or offended by such jokes.

Obama claims allowing American citizens who were victimized by a foreign country to sue them and take it to court is bad for America.

What he fails to say is that it's only bad for some Americans, not America.  And who would they be? Anyone from Main Street? Doubtful.

The people who are worried this could backfire on them by allowing foreign countries to sue in kind are probably needing to be sued.

To deprive Americans who have been victimized just to protect special interests of the privileged few is what's bad for America and Obama should be the first to admit it rather than trying to avoid it.

JASTA would allow the families of victims of the 9/11 attacks to sue Saudi Arabia for its role in supporting plotters in the lead-up to the attack. President Obama vetoed the bill Friday, claiming other nations could reciprocate and that it would open taxpayers up to lawsuits for America’s own misdeeds internationally.

Carter’s opposition to JASTA took a different tack, arguing that a lawsuit against Saudi Arabia over 9/11 would lead to “an intrusive discovery process,” and ultimately lead to the public disclosure of “American secrets,” potentially damaging the terror war.

While this is in keeping with the administration’s obsession to keep myriad secrets (after all, the 28 pages disclosure on Saudi involvement in 9/11 only became public in a heavily redacted form after a protracted effort), it also seems to amount to an admission that America has more secrets that would be relevant in the case against the Saudis.

Exactly what that would be, or even where it would come from, is unclear, as while there were considerable redactions within the 28 pages, none of them gave the appearance of providing any US ties to any of the pre-9/11 shenanigans.

Why is Anthony Weiner not in jail?

Even though this guy is wantonly sexually abusing children; first his toddler son and then a 15 yr old teen age girl, the best we get is that he is being "investigated and/or needs help" which sounds more like everyone in the Hillary political establishment is pushing for stalling and avoiding so as to not taint Hillary's inner circle.

The reality is there are people (children) who have been sexually abused by what is obviously a "disturbed" individual who, up till now, has been allowed to roam free and possibly end up abusing and damaging others; both children and adults.

Any other average American citizen would have long ago been picked up and charged with sex crimes given what is know about Weiners actions documented in photos, videos, and texts an corroborated by the victim(s).

It's time for Hillary, Cuomo, and de Blasio to step aside and let the wheels of justice turn.

Here's where the moderator ultimately fell way short. First, a clear disclaimer:

Asking Trump about releasing his tax returns or about the "birther" issue are legitimate issues to ask, and Holt was right to do so.
However, for the moderator to ignore any questions about the Clinton Foundation — which has been very much in the news lately for all the wrong reasons — and any direct inquiries about destroying evidence and deleting tens of thousands of emails, calls into questions what his aim was here. And these aren't periphery topics, the kind you can take-or-leave on such a stage. If they were ignored, it was done so purposely.

NBC's Lester Holt emerges from debate bruised and partisan | TheHill


Immunity from prosecution and taking the 5th when testifying was the rule, not the exception in the Hillary email server investigation.

Yet, Americans are asked to believe that no crimes or obstruction of justice  were found in the FBI investigation of Hillary and her minions.

First and foremost even someone of average intelligence knows that people that refuse to answer questions under oath by "pleading the 5th" are doing so because they do not want to incriminate themselves after doing something illegal.

Second, we also know that people who ask for "immunity from prosecution" are doing so because they know they did something illegal which if found out, might land them in jail.

When everything is on the up and up as the FBI claims neither of these 2 conditions are necessary.

We were also told that Hillary was more than willing to be interviewed by the FBI but failed to mention that she brought an army of attorneys along with her that people who are so willing to cooperate usually don't do.

An FBI report released earlier this month showed five attorneys accompanied Clinton to her interview, Mills, David Kendall, Kathleen Turner, and Heather Samuelson, who was also interviewed as a witness in the email probe.

POLITICO has learned that the fifth lawyer, whose name was redacted from the report, is a colleague of Kendall and Turner at Williams & Connolly, Amy Saharia. It's unclear why her her name was deleted from the report, since her representation of Clinton in federal court litigation related to the email matter has been a matter of public record since July.

Trump lies and distorts the facts, but he does not commit crimes. 

Taking the 5th, asking for immunity, all ad up to lies, lies, and more lies. People that have nothing to hide, as Hillary claims, don't take the 5th, or ask for immunity. That only happens when "crimes" have been committed. 

Crimes perpetuated by Hillary and now being covered up by her minions who will at some point in time be prosecuted and convicted, and then pardoned by Hillary if elected. That's how it works in a "rigged" system.

Wells Fargo's Predatory Practices Are More Than Petty Frauds

Big banks like Wells Fargo will continue to behave badly so long as they are allowed to quietly settle such "massive frauds" by paying fines that sound huge to ordinary people but in actuality are trivial to the banks.

Wells Fargo is not the only big bank plagued by scandals. Other leading banks, such as JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, Citigroup and HSBC have also racked up a long list of banking crimes.

Driven by greed and unethical practices, most of the big banking scandals have been settled through multibillion-dollar fines. Wells Fargo's recent scandal showed how traditional fraudulent activities that originated five years back can result in loss of trust and faith of millions of customers. This month's scandal at Wells Fargo shows that big banks continue to get away with such acts by paying fines, often leaving the general public clueless as to what happened.


What Trump bashers have not figured out yet is that the more they thump on him the more popular he gets with Main Street (the voters).



Main Street Americans are pissed off and do not trust Establishment politicians, the Main Stream Media, and the majority of the so-called "experts" who push the  worn out message that they know what's best for America.  Establishment media giants like the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times just came out and endorsed Hillary which is another blow (not boost) to her failing campaign. East and West coast elitists don't play well on "mainland" Main Street.

The "bubble has popped" and Trump was the pin that made it happen.

THE WOMAN THAT WOULD BE POTUS; but for all the wrong reasons

Hillary is not a person of the "people."

She panders to the wealthy and connected and devotes her time and energy to making money peddling influence.

She obsesses on concealing the "person" in exchange for marketing the "persona."

Hillary is her own worse enemy.

Where Hillary Clinton is losing ground


It's highly unlikely since her predecessor (Obama) has a miserable track record when it comes to prosecuting anyone connected to Wall Street (banks).

It's also likely that Obama will end up on the payroll of Wall Street banks much like Hillary has been; raking up to $200,000  per pep talk (speeches) in the pay for play game she and husband Bill so like to play.

The banks are America's 21st Century version of the Mafia. It's unfettered organized crime.

Senator Elizabeth Warren Requests Formal Investigation About Why The Obama Administration Did Not Prosecute Wall Street

Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren on Thursday requested a formal investigation into why the Obama administration did not bring criminal charges individuals and corporation involved in the 2007-2008 financial crisis.

In a letter sent Thursday to Michael E. Horowitz, the Inspector General of the Department of Justice, Warren said her staff had found that members of the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission (FCIC) had referred 25 cases to the Justice Department for potential prosecution. None of those referrals were pursued.

“The Department has failed to hold the individuals and companies... accountable,” Warren wrote. “This failure requires an explanation.” Warren also wrote to the head of the FBI, James Comey, and asked him to release records of FBI investigations into financial misdeeds in the wake of the crisis, to further illuminate why the Obama administration decided not to prosecute firms linked to the financial crisis.

The FCIC was a 10 member investigatory body tasked by Congress in 2009 to look into the root causes of the economic collapse. In 2011, the FCIC turned over a mountain of evidence to the Justice Department -- including whistleblower testimony, and internal bank documents.

Though the FCIC wasn’t allowed to launch criminal investigations, it did make prosecutorial suggestions to the Department of Justice.

Phil Angelides, who chaired the FCIC, applauded Warren’s demand for an investigation into why the referrals were not followed up.

“This is in the public interest,” he told International Business Times. “We need to see if there was a fair investigation into what was happening on Wall Street.”

In her letter, Warren said her U.S. Senate staff reviewed thousands of documents from the FCIC and found that the Justice Department failed to pursue criminal charges against both individual executives, and corporation -- even in cases where the Commission found “serious indications of violation[s]" of the law. The cases flagged by Warren include: potential fraud in loan underwriting at UBS, accounting fraud at Fannie Mae, mortgage fraud at Citigroup, and securities fraud at Goldman Sachs.

Warren also singled out the Justice Department’s failure to hold individual Wall Street executives criminally accountable for the corporate wrongdoing -- even though the FCIC found strong evidence for prosecutions.

“Nine individuals were implicated in these referrals,” Warren wrote. “The DOJ has not filed any criminal prosecutions against any of the nine individuals. Not one of the nine has gone to prison or been convicted of a criminal offense. Not a single one has even been indicted or brought to trial.”

Cheryl Mills, Hillary Clinton’s State Department chief of staff and her personal attorney, received immunity from the Justice Department in order to cooperate with the FBI’s investigation into the former secretary of state’s email practices.

Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz, the chair of the House Oversight Committee, told the wire service that Mills, who served as Clinton’s chief of staff, granted federal investigators access to her laptop on the condition that nothing found on the computer could be used against her.

Two other former State Department officials also received immunity, Chaffetz said. Heather Samuelson, a former State Department official who now works as a lawyer for Clinton, received immunity. So did John Bentel, a former State Department official who managed the agency’s IT systems. 

GOP lawmaker: FBI gave immunity to top Clinton aide

Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, told The Associated Press on Friday that Mills gave federal investigators access to her laptop on the condition that what they found couldn't be used against her.

Democrats on the committee said Friday the immunity agreements were limited in scope and did not cover statements made to investigators or to potential testimony before Congress.

Still, Chaffetz said he was "absolutely stunned" that the FBI would cut a deal with someone as close to the investigation as Mills. By including the emails recovered from the laptops in the immunity agreements, the Justice Department exempted key physical evidence from any potential criminal case against the aides.

"No wonder they couldn't prosecute a case," said Chaffetz, R-Utah. "They were handing out immunity deals like candy."

Copies of the immunity agreements were provided to the House oversight committee by the Justice Department this week under seal.

Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon accused House Republicans of "trying to make something out of nothing by rummaging through the files of a Justice Department investigation that was closed months ago without any charges whatsoever, and leaking selective details three days before the first presidential debate."

"Congressman Chaffetz continues to abuse his office by wasting taxpayer dollars to try to second-guess the FBI in what amounts to a desperate attempt to boost Donald Trump's chances against Hillary Clinton," Fallon said.

A yearlong investigation by the FBI focused on whether the Democratic presidential nominee sent or received classified information using the private server located in the basement of her New York home, which was not authorized for such messages.

FBI Director James Comey said in July that his agents hadn't found evidence to support any criminal charge or direct evidence that Clinton's private server had been hacked. He suggested that hackers working for a foreign government may have been so sophisticated they wouldn't have left behind any evidence of a break-in.

Chaffetz said in addition to Mills, others granted immunity include John Bentel, then-director of the State Department's Office of Information Resources Management, and Heather Samuelson, Clinton's executive assistant.

Beth Wilkinson, the lawyer representing Mills and Samuelson, said the text of the immunity agreements show investigators considered her clients "to be witnesses and nothing more." Her office declined to provide copies of the agreements to AP.

"The Justice Department assured us that they believed my clients did nothing wrong," Wilkinson said. "At all points my clients cooperated with the government's investigation, including voluntarily participating in interviews with the FBI and DOJ."

The latest revelation brings the total number of people who were granted immunity as part of the FBI's investigation to at least five.

It had previously been reported immunity had been granted to Bryan Pagliano, a tech expert who set up Clinton's email server, as well as Paul Combetta, a computer specialist for a private firm that later maintained Clinton's email setup.

Chaffetz said he is looking forward to asking Comey questions about the immunity deals when Comey testifies Wednesday before the House Judiciary Committee. Chaffetz is also a member of that panel.

Mills, who was among Clinton's closest confidants, voluntarily appeared last year for a lengthy interview as part of the House GOP's investigation into the 2012 attack on a U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, that left three Americans dead.

Pagliano and Combetta, however, have refused to testify before Congress by invoking their Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination. On Thursday, the GOP-led House oversight committee voted along party lines to hold Pagliano in contempt of Congress for failing to comply with its subpoena.

Disappointed the FBI didn't recommend criminal charges, congressional Republicans are seeking to keep the issue of Clinton's email use alive through the November election. Clinton has called her use of the private server a mistake.

Congressional Democrats accused Republicans of playing politics.

"The facts are that Ms. Mills cooperated fully with the Justice Department and Congress, the FBI concluded that there was no basis for any criminal prosecution," said Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, the ranking Democrat on the oversight committee.

In a statement, the campaign of the Republican presidential nominee criticized both Clinton and the Justice Department.

"No one with judgment this bad should be allowed to serve as president of the United States or hold any public office," Trump spokesman Jason Miller. "What has become abundantly clear is that the Obama Administration is protecting Hillary Clinton from accountability at all costs because she will keep the rigged system in Washington in place."


Democrats are so hell bent on bringing down Trump that they fail to realize that what we have now is an unwritten (but real) policy of "stop and shoot" and a Democratic president's Department of Justice that has failed miserably in doing anything definitive about it.

Welcome to the Terrordome: “Stop-and-Frisk” and Donald Trump’s promise of a police state for black people -


Drug manufacturer Mylan’s CEO Heather Bresch, whose name became well-known last month after revelations that her company had jacked the price of its life-saving EpiPens 600 percent over the last nine years, went to Capitol Hill on Wednesday to answer questions from the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee about the price hike.

It did not go well for her.

Granted, one reason that Bresch earned poor reviews for her performance is that members of the committee were sometimes more concerned with grandstanding and badgering while not seeming to understand her answers, like Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT). But Bresch’s father is Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV), who has been an elected politician at one level or another since 1982. So presumably she had some idea what she was in for.

Chaffetz was not the only member of the committee to get in some licks. Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) also had some harsh words for Bresch, and the general consensus afterwards was that lawmakers on both sides of the aisle had been very tough on her. This came on the heels of the grilling that Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf took on Tuesday from members of both parties in a Senate committee hearing over recently uncovered fraud affecting millions of customers of the bank. Bipartisanship!

I am nowhere close to being optimistic that this signals a new comity on Capitol Hill which will result in addressing, say, the underlying flaws in the nation’s healthcare system that result in drug-company CEOs getting obscenely rich on the backs of the middle class, or other issues such as the federal budget. But maybe I’m wrong and there is reason to be hopef…oh wait, no, we are still on track for a government shutdown at the end of the month because the parties in Congress can’t agree on a bill to keep it funded and operating.

But the major reason that the hearing went poorly for Bresch is because there is simply no justifying the extreme price hike for the EpiPen. Not when the increase has helped your company go from net profits of $184 million in 2008 to an estimated $1.1 billion in 2016. Not when your total salary and compensation have gone from around $2.5 million when you were the company president nine years ago to almost $19 million as the CEO in 2015. Not when you guided your company through a corporate inversion, that neat loophole that allowed you to re-incorporate your entire company in the Netherlands to dodge paying U.S. taxes, even though your entire infrastructure remained here.

In a vacuum, there is nothing wrong with a company making profits, of course. But those profits came at the expense of Mylan’s customers, the middle and lower-class citizens who have struggled for years to keep up with the rising cost of the EpiPen. Since the device delivers a dose of epinephrine to patients suffering life-threatening allergic reactions, and since such a reaction can happen without warning, going without an EpiPen nearby is not a viable option. Additionally, since epinephrine degrades quickly, people have to replace unused pens every year.

It is a neat monopoly the company has carved out for itself, especially since competitors developing generic versions of the drug have for one reason or another been forced out of the market.

As a sop, Bresch announced that Mylan is putting out its own generic EpiPen that lowers the wholesale acquisition cost from $600 to $300 per two-pack of the product. (EpiPens come almost exclusively in two-packs.) If 85 percent of EpiPen sales shift to the generic, as Mylan estimates, this change could lead to as much as a 35 percent reduction in EpiPen revenue for the company.

That would be a notable drop. But it is up to Mylan to decide just how much of the generic they put out into the market and there is no enforcement mechanism if the company decides to shortchange consumers on this one, save dragging Bresch back up to Capitol Hill for another grilling.

As MarketWatch points out, despite all the back-slapping and self-congratulation from Congress over the tough questioning of Bresch, fundamental underlying questions about the EpiPen situation remain unaddressed. For example, one of the reasons for the price hike of both EpiPens and other drugs remains high-deductible health insurance plans, which help shift costs of both treatment and medications from employers to consumers.

The problem of high-deductible plans could theoretically be addressed with changes to the Affordable Care Act, including the long-hoped-for public option insurance plan. But we know how Republicans – and some moderate Democrats – feel about that.

In other words, while lawmakers may be on the same side as far as anger about drug-price hikes and consumer bank fraud are concerned, right now it appears to be all talk. And that seems to be about all we can expect for the foreseeable future.

Recipe for ripoffs: Pricing drugs by their 'value' to sick people - LA Times

Heather Bresch, chief executive of pharmaceutical heavyweight Mylan, testified before lawmakers Wednesday that her company acted ethically and fairly when it jacked up the price of life-saving EpiPens by more than 500%.

While saying she was troubled “that the EpiPen product has become a source of controversy,” Bresch told skeptical members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform that “price and access exist in a balance, and we believe we have struck that balance.”

That’s a bold stance considering that each $300 EpiPen contains about a dollar’s worth of epinephrine and Mylan didn’t even invent the plastic injector that delivers the drug. It purchased rights to manufacture and sell EpiPens in 2007 as part of a $6.6-billion acquisition of Merck’s generic-drug operations.

At the time of the merger, people were able to buy EpiPens for about $50 each. Mylan now sells EpiPens in packs of two for more than $600.

Hillary Clinton: "Why aren't I 50 points ahead of Trump?"

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is scolding voters again. Previously, she called “half” of GOP nominee Donald Trump’s supporters a “basket of deplorables” that were “irredeemable.” Now, in a new video making the rounds on social media, Clinton angrily explains why she isn’t running away with the election.

Clinton appeared in a video conference for the Laborers’ International Union of North America, which was holding a gathering in Las Vegas. A clip of the segment is making the media rounds.

In the clip, Clinton stops talking about policy and becomes visibly agitated as she asks, “Now, having said all this, ‘Why aren’t I 50 points ahead?’ you might ask.”

The answer, according to Clinton, is predictably not that she’s a terrible candidate who is historically disliked (second only to Trump) and has numerous scandals and questions of trustworthiness and transparency following her around. No, the answer is that her supporters aren’t doing enough to help her. Oh, and Trump supporters need some sort of “intervention,” like they’re on drugs.

“Well, the choice for working families has never been clearer. I need your help to get Donald Trump’s record out to everybody. Nobody should be fooled.”

In a portion of the video conference not being circulated, Clinton allegedly told her union backers to “stage an intervention” for anyone they know who is voting for Trump, according to The Washington Post.

“Try to talk some sense into them. Lay out the facts. The facts are on our side, about what I’ve done versus what he’s done,” Clinton said. “Remember, friends don’t let friends vote for Trump.”

Appearing visibly irritated and hostile toward the question many have been asking (especially her supporters in the media) about why she isn’t running away with the election will do Clinton no favors.

For weeks, bad news and bad polls have plagued the Clinton campaign, while Trump largely remained unscathed (that has changed recently with his birther comments, his son Donald Jr.’s tweet about skittles and refugees and a report that he used money from his charity to settle legal issues).

Polls now appear to be bouncing back for Clinton. A new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, for example, showed Clinton up six points on Trump. The sober data analysis website FiveThirtyEight, however, cautions against judging this as a Clinton rebound.

“In only three of the 16 polls [released in the past three days] has the race shifted in Clinton’s direction,” FiveThirtyEight’s Harry Enten wrote. “It’s moved toward Trump in 10. Indeed, the average poll has moved 2.8 percentage points toward Trump.”

Weeks of bad polls have brought Clinton’s chance of winning the general election down to 59 percent with FiveThirtyEight’s polls-only forecast, and 58 percent with their polls-plus model. Obviously, that’s still a good chance of winning the election. But this, Enten wrote, doesn’t mean that Trump will continue on an upward trajectory next week, but that Clinton supporters shouldn’t get excited about a rebound just yet.

And videos where she appears angry at supporters and voters for her not doing better in the polls won’t help.

Huma Abedin Talked About What A Good Dad Anthony Weiner Is | The Daily Caller | WINDS.OF.CHANGE


If she did she would be demanding that people in her inner circle cooperate fully with government investigations and obey the law.

Oversight and Government Reform (HOGR) members voted along party lines Thursday to recommend holding former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton technology aide Bryan Pagliano in contempt of Congress after he defied a congressional subpoena to testify for the second time in two weeks.

“Subpoenas are not optional,” HOGR Chairman Jason Chaffetz said to the chair from which Pagliano — the sole invited witness in an HOGR hearing on Clinton’s use of private email servers at the Department of State — was supposed to testify.

House panel holds Clinton IT aide in contempt | Washington Examiner


It looks like if your'e "connected" to powerful people like the Clinton's you are pretty much immune from the law and can get away with crimes that; for the average person, would land you in jail before you could say jail.

After his first sexting scandal forced Weiner to resign from Congress, Abedin was so rock steady that just two years later he was leading the polls in his comeback candidacy for mayor of New York City. Those hopes ended when he was caught again, but he still had Abedin. And her steadfast presence reinforced our general willingness to give somebody a second or even a third chance.

Weiner began writing for a newspaper and appearing on television news shows. He was not greatly exaggerating when he texted somebody: “I’m a big wheel in this town.”

Unfortunately, those words appear to have been part of a chat that veered into more sexting, including a selfie of Weiner’s famous “package.” The difference this time was that Weiner apparently took the photo while he was in bed with his toddler son.

Huma Abedin, the Good Wife, Reaches Her Limit With Anthony Weiner - The Daily Beast


One question. Why is the Weiner not in jail? Or at the least arrested and charged with several counts of child abuse.

Any "average" person would have been picked up long ago but this guy has been allowed to roam around free and continue to commit more crimes that law enforcement has still to pick him up for.

As disgusting as it is it appears as if Weiner is getting free passes because he is part of the Clinton inner circle which can provide him with political clout.

It's also curious that no one has bothered to even bring up the subject with Hillary given Weiner's close relationship to the Clintons and the caampaign via his wife Uma who Hillary see's as a "second" daughter.

Justice Department attorneys said Wednesday that the FBI handed over two discs of Hillary Clinton's emails in late July: one that stored the roughly 15,000 deleted emails that agents are presently reviewing for release, and another previously undisclosed disc that stored an unidentified number of classified records.

The revelation came in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by Jason Leopold of Vice News, the same case that already forced the release of the 30,000 emails Clinton submitted in late 2014.

Government lawyers did not specify whether the classified emails provided by the FBI were included in the original 30,000 records or were among those Clinton and her lawyers deleted.

But the revelation seems to indicate that the classified emails are a new batch of records that hadn't been disclosed before, as they were provided alongside other records that the former secretary of state scrubbed from her server.

Raising prices on healthcare products to enrich executives and stockholders takes priority over the well being of those in need; and there's nothing anyone can do about it.

Mylan CEO Heather Bresch delivered a defiant performance before a group of hostile lawmakers upset over the company's EpiPen's price hike, as she called the current $600 price tag "fair."

Bresch refused to apologize before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Wednesday for raising the price by more than 400 percent since the generic drug maker acquired the allergy treatment in 2007. She said in her opening statement that Mylan regrets not anticipating the magnitude of a "growing minority of patients who may have ended up paying the full [wholesale acquisition cost] price and more."

However, Bresch stood by the company's decision to charge $600.

"We believe it was a fair price and we just now lowered that price by half," Bresch said in response to a question from Rep. Scott DesJarlais, R-Tenn., on whether Mylan was charging too much. She was referring to a new $300 generic version Mylan has offered.

Report: Latest Anthony Weiner Scandal Involves 15-YEAR-OLD Girl |


All the huffing and puffing and eloquent vitriol from politicians doesn't do anything about putting a stop to what's going on in the world of Wall Street. 

The criminal activity is rampant yet no one even mentions anyone going to jail or giving the millions of dollars they personally pocketed.

The trouble at Wells Fargo & Co. started small, with a few employees at branches opening bogus accounts as they tried to meet aggressive sales goals and keep their jobs.

Now, after an incendiary hearing during which U.S. senators told the bank’s chief executive he should resign and face criminal charges, it’s morphed into a widening scandal that has at least temporarily united Democrats and Republicans in Washington -- and could spread well beyond Wells Fargo.

Wells Fargo CEO faces bipartisan wrath during fiery Senate panel hearing - LA Times

Since 2009, Wall Street has paid $204,000,000,000 in fines and settlements. This is the equivalent to writing a $640 check to every man, woman and child in America including all undocumented residents. It's hard to imagine an industry running up such a liability unless the basic business model was deeply flawed.

The unlawful acts include the facilitation of money laundering for drug cartels and rogue nations, illegally evicting homeowners, selling fraudulent mortgages and mortgage backed securities, manipulating vital interest rates, insider trading, and facilitating off-shore tax evasion.

The damage done to homeowners and those who lost their jobs during the Great Recession is arguably far worse than the problems caused by drug trafficking. Yet millions, especially people of color, have been arrested, fined, convicted and jailed through the failed war on drugs, while not one of Wall Street's top banking executives has gone to jail or even paid a fine. (Conveniently, $204 billion has been paid by the companies, not by the top executives.)

Here we are in 2016 and nothing much has changed. 

The politicians are ranting but still pandering to Wall Street for campaign cash; less we forget that not so long ago one of our presidential candidates (Hillary Clinton) was on the payroll of many Wall Street banks, including Wells Fargo.

Hillary and banks; including Wells Fargo, have been in the "pay for play" game for years and this latest debacle involving Wells Fargo is another warning sign that, if elected POTUS, the game will go on.

The "too big to fail or jail" banks are at it again and it again looks like the consequences will be nothing more than a "slap on the wrist" fine that's a few dollars more than the exit bonus the bank paid to the bankster in charge of the operation.

When it comes to banks and the wealthy people who run them the term "rule of law." is just that; words.

If anything more is going to happen it will be up to the people who patronize this illegal operation and the best way to hit back is to just stop doing business with Wells Fargo.

They call it "clawing back" and appropriately so.

7 Hard Rounds of Questions for John Stumpf, Wells Fargo CEO

Monday, September 19, 2016


8 years ago Obama said Hillary was not qualified to be POTUS; he was.

Today he says Hillary is even more qualified than he is/was.

Will the real Obama please stand up?

Exactly what has Hillary Clinton done to appeal to young black voters, except call them names years ago, disrespect them as Black Lives Matter movement protesters, and then rely on certain black surrogates such as yourself to do her leg work for her?

No, President Obama, I don't think we owe you anything. Our debt to you, if we ever had one, is more than paid in full. We stood in line for hours during two elections to ensure that you became, and stayed, a resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

We continued to have your back when other people, to include Hillary Clinton, threw you under the bus.

Truth be told, there are a few executive orders you should be throwing OUR way! Let me know when you're ready to have that discussion! Your debt to the black community is still outstanding. Pardoning some inmates is great and all, but it seems to me there should be at least one or two executive orders directed toward the black community you could have done.

I think you getting out on the campaign trail for Hillary is great. I think using the line that black people not voting for her is an insult to you is the wrong approach.

Social media lit up like a Christmas tree Saturday after Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's subdued, even sleepy response to a bomb that went off in midtown Manhattan, injuring more than two dozen New Yorkers.
Was she drugged? Is there something wrong with this picture? You be the judge. Watch the video here or at the end of this story, recorded aboard her plane Saturday night.IS
The Twitter thread reported on F2 E-Business News was brutal but typical of public reaction:
  • "Is she drunk or did she have a stroke the other day when she collapsed?"
  • "That's old and tired, not drunk."
  • (Response) "What difference does it make?"
  • "Looks like they threw a Clean Diaper on her and told her to make a statement."
  • "This is what she looks like on 12 hours sleep instead of 18 hours sleep."
One commenter on The Gateway Pundit wrote, "Hillary delivered one speech today to the Black Caucus members in Washington DC. ... Donald Trump held four events in three states: Texas, Oklahoma and Colorado. ... And the media is downplaying the blast to protect Hillary."
Gateway Facebook comments include these:
  • Larry Hutchinson, owner of Kimcor Trucking: "You can tell that she has that ear piece in and they are telling her what to say."
  • Wren Graham, Calloway County, Kent.: "She looks sick, and sounds heavily medicated."
  • Lateef Robinson, Daytona State College: "Well she is recovering from pneumonia and she's doped on all kinds of drugs this ain't surprising."
  • (Response) Larry Hutchinson: "Sounds like excuses to me. I think she is slow to respond because she is repeating what they tell her in the ear piece."
  • Elaine Koop, Grand Rapids, Mich.: "They had to put her out there!! She is sick & tired & has to be in bed with 2 gin & tonics by 8:00PM!! Prop her up & send her out & hope it changes the "script"!!"
  • David J. Excell Sr., Utica, N.Y.: "Looks like she is going to throw up again."
Various online sources have reported anywhere from 600,000 to 800,000 people around the world speculated in social media on Hillary's "condition" during the Saturday night interview.
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, like Hillary Clinton, called the attack "a bombing" -- though Clinton, when prompted, later said she would rather wait for responders to finish their investigation before categorizing it. 
Trump had just arrived in Colorado for a Saturday evening rally when he learned about the incident. 
"I must tell you that just before I got off the plane, a bomb went off in New York and nobody knows exactly what's going on," he said. "But boy, we are living in a time -- we better get very tough folks, we better get very, very tough. ... 
"Just happened, so we'll find out, but it's a terrible thing that's going on in our world and in our country and we are going to get tough and smart and vigilant and we're gonna end it. We're gonna end it.'

Unless, of course, they have thousands of dollars to throw at them.

Clinton Foundation officials confirmed that the fundraiser is the final one planned before the Nov. 8 election, and that Bill Clinton planned to attend.

Hillary Clinton, who is recovering from a highly scrutinized case of pneumonia, is not planning to attend the party, her campaign said.

Foundation officials also would not say how much money has been raised for the Rainbow Room fundraiser or from whom.

But they pointed out that former President Clinton had parties marking past milestone birthdays that also doubled as fundraisers for his foundation, which raised $12.6 million from his 60th birthday bash, and said everyone set to attend Friday’s party was aware that it was a fundraiser for the foundation.

The foundation has pledged to enact a series of reforms if Hillary Clinton wins the presidency, including having Bill Clinton step down from the board, and no longer accepting foreign or corporate donations.

The reforms are part of an effort to tamp down concerns about potential conflicts of interest that have dogged Clinton during her presidential campaign. Her campaign has spent considerable time responding to questions about whether foundation donors got special access to the State Department when she was secretary of state.

And those questions are sure to be raised anew in the coming days.

Not only are major foundation donors gathering at the Rainbow Room on Friday, but on Monday, they’ll convene again five blocks away for the final three-day gathering of the Clinton Global Initiative, which typically concludes with a gala dinner.

Some Clinton supporters have been grumbling for months that it was politically unwise to hold a CGI meeting seven weeks before the election, but they at least conceded that it was a justifiable sendoff for a program that engaged global business leaders in noble humanitarian pursuits.

The Rainbow Room party, on the other hand, induced cringes among some Clinton supporters, who cast it as an unnecessary show of excess at a sensitive time in the presidential race. Clinton’s campaign is scrambling to deal with questions about her health, her transparency, the efficacy of the foundation reforms and her declaration — for which she has since apologized — that half of the supporters of her GOP rival Donald Trump are “deplorables.”

The Rainbow Room party is a “bad idea,” said one Clinton supporter who has worked with the foundation, who predicted that the fundraiser would call even more attention to the Clintons relationships with their donors.

The Clinton Foundation has no plans to reveal who is paying for a lavish birthday party Friday for former President Bill Clinton, a spokesman said just hours after Donna Shalala, president of the foundation, indicated that it would.

Bill’s glitzy birthday bash raises money for Clinton Foundation - POLITICO

Even as the Clintons are touting plans to distance themselves from their foundation and limit its fundraising if Hillary Clinton is elected president, they’re planning one last glitzy fundraising bash on Friday to belatedly celebrate Bill Clinton’s 70th birthday.

The fundraiser is being held at the Rainbow Room, a fine-dining restaurant on the 65th floor of a Manhattan skyscraper. Plans called for performances by Wynton Marsalis, Jon Bon Jovi and Barbra Streisand, according to people briefed on the planning. They said that major donors are being asked to give $250,000 to be listed as a chair for the party, $100,000 to be listed a co-chair and $50,000 to be listed as a vice-chair.

Clinton Foundation officials confirmed that the fundraiser is the final one planned before the Nov. 8 election, and that Bill Clinton planned to attend.

Hillary Clinton, who is recovering from a highly scrutinized case of pneumonia, is not planning to attend the party, her campaign said.

Foundation officials also would not say how much money has been raised for the Rainbow Room fundraiser or from whom.

But they pointed out that former President Clinton had parties marking past milestone birthdays that also doubled as fundraisers for his foundation, which raised $12.6 million from his 60th birthday bash, and said everyone set to attend Friday’s party was aware that it was a fundraiser for the foundation.


Hillary is once again dodging the truth and trying to not get caught in a "lie" trap she created.

Had she been truthful at the onset she would not need "more time" to answer 25 written questions about her email server.

The truth doesn't need attorneys  or revisions.

Hillary Clinton has requested more time to answer a set of 25 written questions about her private email server after a federal judge ordered her to have them completed by the end of the month.

The questionnaire, which she was ordered to complete through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by conservative-leaning Judicial Watch, was designed to clear up inconsistencies in her past statements to the FBI and to Congress about her personal email network. Her answers will be considered sworn testimony.

But Clinton's legal team asked Judicial Watch last week for a two-week extension to address the inquiries, citing "the unavailability of counsel and the press of campaign business, among other reasons," the group announced Wednesday.

Clinton had been facing a Sept. 29 deadline; she must now submit her responses by Oct. 13.
Clinton postpones email questions due to 'campaign business' | Washington Examiner


It's not easy catching Hillary when she's actually saying something truthful.  In this instance it was just pure luck since she has  let the press near her at only 6 of 330  fund raisers she has done with the "snooty" donors she panders to.

Clinton would have been on firmer footing if she had stuck to the kinds of careful caveats used in her speech about the alt-right. As recently as Thursday, Clinton used the "basket" analogy. And on Sunday, Politico wrote about the analogy, noting Clinton's attempts to appeal to Republicans — in the other basket:

"Former California gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman even introduced Clinton at multiple closed-door August fundraisers in California. There, the candidate explained her approach to Republicans interested in Trump, according to one Bay Area attendee. Clinton divides Trump voters into two baskets, she said: the everyday Republicans — her targets — and what she called 'the deplorables' — the 'alt-right' crowd she excoriates and has no hope of wooing."

Neither instance received much attention, because of her wording. Note the lack of "half."

Clinton's latest remark comes at a time when Clinton was beginning to open up with the press more and planning to speak in more personal terms around issues, in an effort to reduce her near-record unfavorable ratings. (Only Donald Trump has worse ratings for a presidential candidate).

She took questions from reporters at length three separate times this past week. And the reason reporters know what Clinton said Friday night is because it was one of just sixfundraisers that has been open to the press out of more than 330 she's done in this campaign.

Instead of firing the person in charge of the ripoff Wells Fargo is sending her on her way with millions in bonuses.

Instead of the government filing "criminal" against Wells Fargo and the people who orchestrated this ripoff, the bank is being let off with a slap on the wrist and a fine almost equal to the bonuses they handed to the perps while not even mentioning those involved in the criminal activity.

In America they call this justice as doled out in a country that adheres to the rule of law.

It's not surprising the US has lost it's moral standing in the world.

Months ago, CEO John Stumpf praised the executive in hot water as “a standard-bearer” for the bank.

Wells Fargo & Co’s  “sandbagger”-in-chief is leaving the giant bank with an enormous pay day—$124.6 million.

In fact, despite beefed-up “clawback” provisions instituted by the bank shortly after the financial crisis, and the recent revelations of massive misconduct, it does not appear that Wells Fargo is requiring Carrie Tolstedt, the Wells Fargo executive who was in charge of the unit where employees opened more than 2 million largely unauthorized customer accounts—a seemingly routine practice that employees internally referred to as “sandbagging”—to give back any of her nine-figure pay.

On Thursday, Wells Fargo agreed to pay $185 million, including the largest penalty ever imposed by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, to settle claims that that it defrauded its customers. The bank’s shareholders will ultimately have to swallow the cost of that settlement. 

The bank also said it had fired 5,300 employees (except the person in charge) over five years related to the bad behavior.

Wells Fargo Exec Who Headed Phony Accounts Unit Collected $125 Million


If there's "just smoke and no fire" as Hillary says then why are the people surrounding her taking the 5th when asked to testify in public and/or granted immunity by the FBI and DOJ?

That kind of behavior usually indicates there are crimes involved.

A computer specialist who deleted Hillary Clinton’s emails despite orders from Congress to preserve them was given immunity by the Justice Department during its investigation into her personal email account, according to a law enforcement official and others briefed on the investigation.

Republicans have called for the department to investigate the deletions, but the immunity deal with the specialist, Paul Combetta, makes it unlikely that the request will go far. Representative Jason Chaffetz of Utah, the top Republican on the House oversight committee, asked the Justice Department on Tuesday to investigate whether Mrs. Clinton, her lawyers or the specialist obstructed justice when the emails were deleted in March 2015.

Mr. Combetta is one of at least two people who were given immunity by the Justice Department as part of the investigation. The other was Bryan Pagliano, a former campaign staff member for Mrs. Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, who was granted immunity in exchange for answering questions about how he set up a server in Mrs. Clinton’s home in Chappaqua, N.Y., around the time she became secretary of state in 2009.

The F.B.I. described the deletions by Mr. Combetta in a summary of its investigation into Mrs. Clinton’s account that was released last Friday. The documents blacked out the specialist’s name, but the law enforcement official and others familiar with the case identified the employee as Mr. Combetta. They spoke on the condition of anonymity because they did not want to be identified discussing matters that were supposed to remain confidential.

Trump Calls On Clinton To Drop Out For Not Retracting “Deplorables” Comment“If Hillary Clinton will not retract her comments in full, I don’t see how she can credibly campaign any further,” Trump said.
Bad mouthing is common in politics; but only when it comes to taking on your opponent(s).

What any savvy politician knows is that you don't bad mouth the voters (American people).

Romney learned the hard way by getting caught badmouthing Obama supporters while speaking at one of those $50,000.00 a plate gathering of the 1% crowd.

Now, it's Hillary's turn in the barrel. She was caught at a "big money" donor gathering badmouthing people who support Trump and there is a price to be paid.

76% Want Four-Person Debates, Why Are Establishment Elites Preventing It - NationofChange | Progressive Change Through Positive Action

Libertarian Gary Johnson did not reach the 15% threshold for inclusion in presidential debates in the latest Suffolk University/USA TODAY national poll. This is a disappointment to voters, 76% of whom believe that third-party candidates like Johnson and Green Party nominee Jill Stein should be able to share the stage with Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump this fall.

The large majority of voters said that a third-party candidate who is certified on a majority of state ballots should be included in the national political conversation, 17% said they should not be included in the debates, and 7% were undecided. It’s clear that the voting public would like to welcome — with open arms — serious third-party candidates. Johnson claims he’ll be on all 50 state ballots, and it appears Stein will be on more than 80% when all of the legal challenges and appeals have concluded.

For the record, the poll showed that, in a four-way presidential ballot test that included Johnson and Stein, Clinton (42%) led Trump (35%), with Johnson receiving 9%, Stein 4% and 10% undecided. That 9% was a credible finding for Johnson but far below the 15% threshold he must show to get by the national TV debate gatekeepers.

Although he trails the front-runners in nearly every category, Johnson did break into the double-digit column in some demographics. Among men, he’s polling at 13%, and he is favored by 12% of voters in Western states, perhaps not surprising given that his home state is New Mexico. Fourteen percent of those who feel the U.S. economy is in stagnation prefer Johnson. Among voters ages 18-34 he polls at 18%, and he polls at 19%, well above the 15% threshold, among independents.

If the way Hillary was feeling today was "great" I would hate to see her when she's not feeling so good.

Here again, being truthful; which would probably go a long way in making her more likable, is just not in her genes.

Had a video of her being carried into a van not appeared the public would again be left with another load of BS to mull over trying to figure out who the real Hillary is.

Hillary Clinton fell ill during a New York memorial service marking the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, and video of her unexpectedly early departure showed her buckling and stumbling as she got into her van.

The video, circulated on Twitter, appeared to show the Democratic presidential nominee leaving the commemoration at Ground Zero. Flanked by several Secret Service agents who are regulars on her detail, Clinton can be seen leaning against a security bollard while agents prepare to help her into a black van. As she steps forward, Clinton can be seen falling as agents help lift her into the van.

A campaign spokesman confirmed that Clinton had suffered from overheating and left the ceremony early.

"Secretary Clinton attended the September 11th Commemoration Ceremony for just an hour and thirty minutes this morning to pay her respects and greet some of the families of the fallen," spokesman Nick Merrill said. "During the ceremony, she felt overheated, so departed to go to her daughter's apartment and is feeling much better."

The incident quickly renewed attention to Clinton's health. Her rival, Republican Donald Trump, has for more than nine months questioned her condition, saying that she doesn't have the "strength" or "stamina" for the presidency and accusing her of being "exhausted" and sleeping too much.

Neither Trump nor his aides responded immediately for requests for comment Sunday. But the attacks have intensified in the past month as unverified and often debunked theories about Clinton's health have floated around the Internet. And Sunday's incident prompted an avalanche of speculation on social media.

One individual familiar with the incident confirmed that Clinton felt ill and wobbly at the event.

And a former agent said that the detail’s movements show they had not planned for her to leave that early and had to make up some rushed security plans on the fly. The detail leader, normally in charge of sticking by her side at all times, had to leave her momentarily to open the door of her van.

"However, all details were reporting heat related matters/issues," the first individual said. "This is actually common and anticipated for events such as this."

"Overheating" is code for "sick" while "Short circuiting is code for "lying."

Hillary must think people are dumb and can't figure that out but then she does believe there's a "basket of deplorable s" out there who are a waste of her time.

Truth be told there is good reason for Hillary not feeling very well given the amount of energy it takes to avoid reality and pretend as if everything is OK.

Hillary Clinton leaves 9/11 event in New York after feeling unwell - LA Times

Video emerged Sunday of Hillary Clinton struggling to stand and needing help to get into her vehicle as questions swirled about the Democratic presidential nominee’s health after she abruptly left a 9/11 ceremony in New York City.

In the 19-second video, a woman is seen clutching Clinton’s left arm as her vehicle approaches, and then two men grab both of her arms and help her into the vehicle as her knees appear to buckle.

Clinton was attending a 9/11 ceremony when she left around 9:30 a.m. because she felt “overheated,” according to campaign spokesman Nick Merrill.

“Secretary Clinton attended the September 11th Commemoration Ceremony for just an hour and thirty minutes this morning to pay her respects and greet some of the families of the fallen,” Merrill said in a statement. “During the ceremony, she felt overheated so departed to go to her daughter's apartment, and is feeling much better.”

Shortly before noon, Clinton left Chelsea Clinton’s apartment, wearing sunglasses and waving to diners at a nearby restaurant.

"I'm feeling great, it's a beautiful day in New York," Clinton said, before heading to her home in Chappaqua.

Republicans have focused on Clinton’s health on the campaign trail, with GOP nominee Donald Trump repeatedly questioning her strength and stamina.

Sunday’s incident will only amplify these questions, in part because of the abrupt nature of her departure from the ceremony and the lack of details about what occurred from her campaign. The reporters who were traveling with Clinton were not told about her condition or her whereabouts for 90 minutes after she left the ceremony.

Forty percent of likely voters support Donald Trump and 39 percent backing Hillary Clinton, says the latest Reuters/Ipsos national tracking poll released Friday.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has pulled into an effective tie with Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, erasing a substantial deficit as he consolidated support among his party's likely voters in recent weeks, according to the latest Reuters/Ipsos national tracking poll released Friday.

The poll showed 40 percent of likely voters supporting Trump and 39 percent backing Clinton for the week of Aug. 26 to Sept. 1. Clinton's support has dropped steadily in the weekly tracking pollsince Aug. 25, eliminating what had been a eight-point lead for her.

Speaking at a fundraiser in New York City on Friday, Clinton declared, “You know to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,” she added: “…the racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, you name it.”

Following her comment, the Democratic nominee has faced backlash on Twitter, with #BasketofDeplorables being the top trending hashtag for hours.

Her statement of regret comes after her spokesman Nick Merrill tried to clarify her comments earlier on Saturday and after Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway called for an apology.

Media Matters founder David Brock is demanding that the Commission on Presidential Debates remove Fox News anchor Chris Wallace as moderator of the final presidential debate in October.

Brock, a staunch ally of Hillary Clinton who also founded pro-Clinton Super PACs Correct the Record and American Bridge 21st Century, argues that Wallace has a conflict of interest because of his relationship to former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes. Ailes is reportedly informally advising Donald Trump and helping him prepare for the debates.

Ailes is also still technically advising 21st Century Fox executive co-chairman and acting Fox News CEO Rupert Murdoch through 2018, according to his separation agreement.

"It is a glaring conflict of interest that Roger Ailes, who resigned from Fox News in July, simultaneously provides advice to Donald Trump while serving as a paid adviser to Fox News chief Rupert Murdoch—debate moderator Chris Wallace’s boss,” Brock writes in the letter.

5,300 Wells Fargo employees fired over 2 million phony accounts - Sep. 8, 2016

Thursday, September 8, 2016


 At the NBC News “Commander in Chief” forum on Wednesday night aboard the U.S.S. Intrepid in New York, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton invented a new alibi for her mis-handling of classified information, telling host Matt Lauer that she used a secure server when she needed to send classified information.

In July, FBI director James Comey revealed that Clinton not only withheld and deleted work-related emails, but also sent classified emails — many marked as such — on her private, non-secure email server.

Clinton told Lauer on Wednesday evening:

I communicated about classified material on a wholly separate system. I took it very seriously. When I traveled, I went into one of those little tents that I’m sure you’ve seen around the world because we didn’t want there to be any potential for someone to have embedded a camera to try to see whatever it is that I was seeing that was designated, marked, and headed as classified.

In fact, the FBI report released last week confirmed that Clinton declined to use a email account, and defied her own department’s policy to use an “authorized information system” for official business. She had no computer in her office, which was a secure environment, nor did she use a computer inside the secured area in her homes. (In her FBIinterview, she said she could not recall receiving any advice about email policies.)

The report implies that the only time Clinton used a secure system for sending email was when she was traveling abroad — when State Department career staff, not her personal entourage, were responsible for setting up her communications.


Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton at a town hall forum Wednesday tried to assure voters that she was careful in her handling of classified information as secretary of state.

Clinton said, "I did exactly what I should have done and I take it very seriously. Always have, always will."

Clinton was asked by a veteran during a "commander in chief forum" hosted by NBC how she could be trusted, given her use of a private email server as secretary of state.

Clinton insisted she never used an insecure system to handle classified material designated and marked with clear headers.

She said that she "communicated about classified material on a wholly separate system" and "took it very seriously."

Clinton said none of the emails she sent or received had a header that clearly marked "top secret."

She noted that she has years of experience dealing with classified material dating back to her time as a senator. Classified material usually has a heading marked "top secret," she said.

She insisted that none of the messages sent or received on her private server had such a heading.

Clinton conceded that some of the messages included references to the covert drone program. But she said there was no discussion of "covert actions" that were being considered in the messages.

She also said there was no evidence her email server was hacked.
