    In a post to Twitter Wednesday, Politico reporter Hadas Gold begged Hillary Clinton to hold a press conference. Gold’s pleading message to Clinton, which included a promise to ask Donald Trump about Russia, reads like the DNC emails exposed by Wikileaks showing media collusion with the Democrats. The press knows that Clinton is looking bad in comparison to Donald Trump by her not having held a formal press conference in nearly eight months–235 days is the reported number. Trump held yet another press conference Wednesday morning in which he went after Clinton for not holding press conferences. Gold’s tone with...

    "This has gone from being a curiosity, and a matter of politics, to being a national security issue." JULY 27, 2016 By Sean Davis After taunting Hillary Clinton by asking Russian hackers to release 30,000 e-mails she deleted, Donald Trump finally forced Clinton’s campaign to admit that her unsanctioned e-mail server scheme was a “national security issue.” Clinton camp responds to Trump calling on Russia to release emails Donald J.

    Old and busted: Most transparent administration ever! New hotness: The system is rigged, and not just in the Democratic primaries. The campaign-finance watchdog site Open Secrets reports that DNC e-mails published by Wikileaks show DNC officials apparently coordinating with the Obama administration to reward donors with appointments to boards and commissions: Email exchanges involving top officials at theDemocratic National Committee released along with private documents by WikiLeaks show that DNC officials hoped to reward top donors and insiders with appointments to federal boards and commissions in coordination with the White House.

    Although the public know what is going on, the media seems loath to find any connection between these events. Indeed, the same papers that blame an exaggerated spike in ‘hate crime’ on everyone who voted for Brexit seem unwilling to put the blame for these real and violent attacks on the individuals carrying them out. As Reuters went on: ‘A 27-year-old Syrian man who had been denied asylum in Germany a year ago died on Sunday when a bomb he was carrying exploded outside a music festival.’ How terrible for him to lose his bomb in such a way.

    Editor’s Note: Erick Erickson gushed over Bill Clinton’s speech at the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday night, which was universally panned. The party of family values has just nominated a man on his third wife with numerous affairs and they are pitting him against a woman whose husband routinely cheated on her, but they kept their marriage together. Republicans are prone to cast aspersions on the Clinton marriage. “They did it for power” or “she stuck to him for her own benefit” are the most common ones. But in a day and age where marriages crumble and kids wind up...

    Former U.S. officials who worked on Russia policy with Clinton say that Putin was personally stung by Clinton’s December 2011 condemnation of Russia’s parliamentary elections, and had his anger communicated directly to President Barack Obama. They say Putin and his advisers are also keenly aware that, even as she executed Obama’s “reset” policy with Russia, Clinton took a harder line toward Moscow than others in the administration. And they say Putin sees Clinton as a forceful proponent of “regime change” policies that the Russian leader considers a grave threat to his own survival. “He was very upset [with Clinton] and...

    A Morning Consult survey taken over the course of six weeks from June through July showed only about 36 percent of women supported Trump. However, a post-convention poll taken last weekend following the Republican National Convention (RNC) gave Trump a bump with females. Support from women jumped to 42 percent for the billionaire. Prior to the RNC, independent women supported Hillary Clinton over Trump 33 percent to 31 percent. After the convention, independent women support Trump over Clinton 37 percent to 30 percent.

    PHILADELPHIA — Democrats are alarmed over a cluster of new polls showing Donald Trump enjoying a healthy bounce in support after the Republican National Convention. Worried Democrats say they thought some of the “dark” themes that Trump and his allies raised in Cleveland wouldn’t gain traction in modern-day America. Yet a flurry of polls have suggested that the GOP presidential nominee is ahead or in a dead heat with presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Some Democrats can’t believe they are in a close race. “It shouldn’t be this close. I don’t think there’s any question that the closeness of this...

    To be clear, not every Sanders supporter feels that way. In fact, the vast majority of them tell pollsters they plan to vote for Clinton this fall. But there is without doubt a vocal group here in Philadelphia unwilling to roll over and play nice with the presumptive nominee — no matter what Sanders says they should do. That is an issue for Clinton — and for Sanders. A vocal minority in the context of, say, Sanders's speech to the convention tonight could be a major problem for party strategists doing everything they can to present a united front. Anything...

    1) Sell the merits of Clinton as a person The most important part of her challenge will be to sell Hillary Clinton the person. Despite all the time that she has spent on the national stage, many voters still don't seem to feel they have a good grasp of who she is. Her opponents in both parties have portrayed her as a ruthlessly ambitious politician who has no heart and soul -- that she will do and say anything to achieve power. This convention is the best chance that she has ever had to persuade Americans otherwise. 2) Counter doom...

    Trump has begun to appoint high profile people, including former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, to commissions and task forces to advise him. That's smart because it makes him appear more willing to listen to others, and to lead by consensus. It could also give cover to modify his policies if he needs to. Let's be honest: Many people see Donald Trump as a bit of a bully. But if lower middle-class workers — the old Reagan Democrats — come to think of him as their bully, Trump can win this election. The more Trump can get other people...

    The end of Debbie Wasserman Schultz’ plans to make gavel-in appearances looks all but certain after the disaster with the Florida delegation. I put the over/under on an announcement at an hour earlier this morning, but so far the Democratic Party is still not grasping the sheer idiocy of putting the now-resigned DNC chair on stage: Allies of Hillary Clinton think Debbie Wasserman Schultz should remove herself completely from the Democratic National Convention, fearing that even the minor role she is set to play has become too much of a distraction. Wasserman Schultz abruptly resigned as chairwoman of the Democratic...

Since the topic for discussion had to do with Clinton NBC reporter Andrea Mitchell got very excited and began to prattle on, “Well, what they are going to do is— they’re going to have gauzy films, the same kind of films you saw in 1992, the same producers.” She did the same thing when gushing about a staged photo-op for Clinton and President Obama on July 3. “They will have...

    Donald J.

She has been a fixture on the American political scene for a generation, subjected to endless attacks, examination and analysis. She is a proxy in debates over feminism and political power and a recurring subject of parody on “Saturday Night Live.” Views about her — particularly on issues of trust after the F.B.I. investigation into her handling of emails as secretary of...

Tim Kaine. "I often feel like there's the Hillary standard and then there's the standard for everybody else," the presumptive Democratic nominee said in the interview on CBS News' "60 Minutes." Clinton explained that there has been a "concerted effort" by Republicans to portray her in a negative light, and described the double standard she believes is set for her as “unfounded, inaccurate, mean-spirited attacks with no...

    The Democratic convention begins tomorrow in Philadelphia, with the party’s leaders scrambling to fend off a series of negative stories and present a unified front. The Wikileaks dump of 20,000 DNC emails has exacerbated divisions within the party .In order to placate the Sanders forces, the Democrats have announced that party chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s speaking slot has been canceled. Wasserman-Schultz was the chief anti-Sanders schemer, so canceling her speech may not be enough: this morning, Sanders demanded that she resign as party chairwoman. My guess is that the Democrats will throw her all the way under the bus in a...

    For these post-Reagan Republicans, conservative was passé. They needed to be “compassionate conservatives,” as if there were something vaguely inhumane about the liberty enterprise. Government was no longer the “necessary evil” envisioned by the Framers, the butt of the Gipper’s aforementioned quip. It was our beneficent guardian who “has got to move” whenever “somebody hurts.” These Republicans doubled the national debt before Obama came along to double it again. The new and improved GOP swelled the size and scope of government; created new entitlements even as the existing ones were bankrupting us; enacted “campaign-finance reform” well aware that it flouted...

Many others on fixed incomes, especially the elderly, have watched helplessly as the cruel tax of inflation wasted away their purchasing power.

    You know what the trouble is, Brucey? We used to make [things] in this country, build [things]. Now we just put our hand in the next guy’s pocket. —Frank Sobotka, “The Wire,” Season 2 Leave it to a Baltimore native to quote HBO’s “The Wire” to understand the 2016 election.

    Carl Bernstein talks the power of the Drudge Report and the influence the eponymous editor had in the Republican primary race during a CNN panel discussion about Roger Ailes and the future of FOX News. Bernstein said FOX has driven Trump's candidacy less than Matt Drudge and called the website "an influence unequalled."

    Donald Trump – the Republican presidential candidate who often boasts to be “really rich” – is leading Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton among American voters making the most from their jobs.

He also leads Clinton by 3 points, 44 percent to 41 percent, among voters who make between $50,000 and $100,000. But Clinton has a larger lead over Trump among the less wealthy and...

Nehlen is running on a pro-America platform arguing, in contrast to Ryan, that the needs of American citizens should be a Congressman’s first priority. If elected, Nehlen would likely join the pro-America wing of the GOP Congress led by Sen. Jeff Sessions and Congressman Dave Brat. By contrast, Speaker Ryan is the ideological leader of the globalist wing of the Republican Party. Ryan emphasizes that the needs of foreign citizens are equal...

Four Months until the Election 7. Extremism Trump seems extremist in speech, but as the campaign wears on, Hillary may confirm that she is more extremist in fact. 8. Polls 9. Converts and Apostates 10.

At least three drivers and two bridge workers were injured, the Journal News reported. None of their injuries are life-threatening. South Nyack-Grand View Police Chief Brent Newbury told the...
