  • Boston Globe: The truth about Clinton's health (MSM desperation alert)

    Boston Globe ^ | August 26, 2016 | Scot Lehigh
    In Hillary Clinton’s inner circle, it’s common knowledge that there are times she's so low-energy that she blanks out for hours. When that happens, she is given to strange mental spells during which she has little or no control over what she says and does. She sometimes mutters things no one can understand. My colleagues in the mainstream media are covering all this up, but the time has come to speak out. We simply can't elect a president subject to such mysterious health issues. [Snip] Here's what I've learned: Clinton suffers from weird seizures, psychotic facial tics, and strange lesions...

    South Carolina Representative Trey Gowdy appeared on Fox News today and disclosed new details about the Clinton email scandal that seem to indicate intent to destroy evidence. Per the clip below, Gowdy reveals that Clinton used "BleachBit" to erase the "personal" emails from her private server. For those not familiar with the software, BleachBit is intended to help users delete files in a way to "prevent recovery" and "hide traces of files deleted." Per the BleachBit website: Beyond simply deleting files, BleachBit includes advanced features such as shredding files to prevent recovery, wiping free disk space to hide traces of...

    Two Orlando-area hospitals are waiving the medical bills of victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting, praising the community response and saying they want to contribute. [Snip] Orlando Regional Medical Center has treated 44 victims of the shooting - more than any other hospital. The center's parent company, Orlando Health, says it will not charge victims for their treatment, reports Abe Aboraya of member station WMFE. "Instead, the hospital will look at federal and state funds, victims' funds like the One Orlando fund, and private funds raised for victims," Aboraya reports for our Newscast unit. "The hospital will bill insurance if...

    "Referring to Hillary as 'Mrs. Clinton' diminishes her accomplishments by specifically attaching her to Bill and subtly diverting attention to her famous husband and his administration ... it makes her appear as if she retired after serving as First Lady and retreated to Arkansas to stereotypically sip sweet tea on her front porch, instead of then becoming a [U.S.] Senator and Secretary of State."

    As Donald Trump and his allies attempt to raise dubious questions over Hillary Clinton's health, the Republican nominee has invited new scrutiny into his own medical history. Like Clinton, Trump has released minimal information, most notably in the form of a December 2015 letter of a few paragraphs from his personal physician, a gastroenterologist, that described his blood pressure and lab results as "astonishingly excellent" while suggesting a President Trump would be the "healthiest individual ever elected." Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN's chief medical correspondent, found much of that language surprising and, in some cases, almost comically lacking in objective data....

    <p>The new movie "Southside With You," which opens Friday, is a feature film about Barack and Michelle Obama's first date in 1989. It's perhaps best described as a "Before Sunrise" for political wonks: The story spans a single day as the future first couple catch a movie, visit an art museum, and talk about their hopes and dreams while meandering through Chicago. On a more meta level, the movie is about the creation of the Obamas' private-life narrative - a shaping of how the public will understand them in the future and an acknowledgment of how it sees them now.</p>

    Vince Foster was a mentor to Hillary when they worked together at the Rose Law Firm in Little Rock, Arkansas. When Bill was confirmed as the 42nd President of the United States on January 20, 1993, Foster took a role as his Deputy White House Counsel. 6 months later, to the day, Foster was found dead in Fort Marcy Park, along the Potomac River, of an apparent "suicide" resulting from a gun shot from a .38 caliber revolver. Like a lot of things surrounding the Clintons, Foster's "suicide" has always been shrouded in mystery. A few months ago, The...

    Donald Trump and his Republican allies say Hillary Clinton is weak, lacks stamina and doesn't look presidential. Intent on undermining his Democratic rival, Trump and GOP backers are increasingly relying on rhetoric that academics and even some Republican strategists say has an undeniable edge focused on gender. His criticism of Clinton goes beyond "Crooked Hillary," and complaints about her use of a private email server as secretary of state and her foreign policy decisions.

    From Donald Trump and his top surrogates to the right-wing media and its engine rooms of outrage in the blogosphere, Hillary Clinton's opponents are ramping up efforts to sow doubt over the candidate's health. The campaign -- which goes back years -- has escalated to shouting over the summer, as Trump spiraled in the polls while mostly failing to connect with voters outside his base demographic. Now, as the race enters a crucial phase, there has been a growing push to fundamentally undermine Clinton's candidacy. Much in the way "birthers" (Trump was among the most prominent) sought similar ends by...

In the note, Mrs. Brandy Young says, "After much research this summer, I am trying something new. Homework will only consist of work that your student did not finish during the school day. There will be no formally assigned homework this year." [Snip] The note ends: "Research has been unable to prove that homework improves student performance. Rather, I ask that you spend your evenings doing things that are proven to correlate with student success....

So with every breath I take I feel like I have a new lease on life," Clinton quipped to Kimmel, according to CNN and other reports. "I don't know why they are saying this.

    It took just a few hours, after Donald J. Trump announced a major staff shake-up last week, for Hillary Clinton's campaign team to settle on a new buzzword. "He peddles conspiracy theories," her campaign manager, Robby Mook, said of Mr. Trump on MSNBC. "We hear rehashed conspiracy theories," he added moments later. [Snip] And as Mr. Trump has raised questions about Mrs. Clinton’s health, saying she "lacks the mental and physical stamina" to fight terrorism, Breitbart has amplified those claims. "Bizarre behavior, seizure allegations raise doubts about Hillary Clinton's health," read one headline last week. "Clinton crash," began another, with...

    Despite his fall from prominence due to serial lying and removal from the anchor desk of NBC Nightly News, current MSNBC breaking news anchor Brian Williams will be given another chance to rein over a daily news program when, according to CNN’s Brian Stelter, MSNBC awards him a half-hour show at 11:00 p.m. at a date to be determined. Stelter reported late Monday night that Williams's program will be slated to run from Labor Day to Election Day and last for only a half-hour "wrapping up the day's campaign news, the sources said."

    Hillary Clinton is maintaining a sizable lead over Donald Trump, even though most Democrats don't see her as a trustworthy candidate. According to a new NBC News|SurveyMonkey Weekly Election Tracking poll, the Democratic presidential nominee leads Trump 50-41 50 among registered voters. That's virtually changed from last week when she had a 10-point lead. But a majority of voters still have negative feelings about Clinton - 59 percent of voters view her negatively, compared to 64 percent who view the GOP nominee in a bad light. When broken down by party, just 12 percent of Democrats say Clinton is honest...

So, we wondered, if everything's awesome and everyone's got a job, why are black Americans rioting in Milwaukee? Here is the answer in one chart and one short sentence from a Milwaukee protester... Jobs are not fungible... Since President Obama was elected, black Americans may have seen their joblessness decline - but since President Obama was elected, income inequality for black Americans has soared...

But the joke was on the horndog pol, whose wife, Huma Abedin, is a top aide and close confidante of Hillary Clinton. The target of his online affection was really a dude.

The poll found that 66 percent of registered Latinos would head to the ballot box to vote for Clinton and her running mate, Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, compared to only 20 percent who would pick the ticket of Trump and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence.

    Two media companies have asked a judge to make public Donald Trump’s 1990 divorce records, contending they're "directly relevant" to the presidential campaign, USA Today reports. After 14 years of marriage, Ivana Trump cited "cruel and inhuman treatment" when filing for divorce. Though Donald Trump's lawyer at the time told the New York Times the cruelty stemmed from his public appearances with Marla Maples, news of a divorce deposition in which Ivana alleged she had been sexually assaulted by her husband surfaced a few years later and again bubbled up during the campaign.

At least nine people were killed on Monday alone, the deadliest day in Chicago in 13 years, according to Tribune data.

    One of the 10 or 15,000 Donald Trump subdramas heading into the fall is the question of whether the Republican presidential nominee will participate in all three scheduled debates. It's usually taken for granted that major-party candidates will agree to the Commission on Presidential Debates' schedule, but there’s no law requiring it, and Trump has never seen a political norm he hasn't considered razing and building something gaudy over. And over the past couple of weeks, he’s laid the groundwork for not participating in the debates by suggesting that they are, in some nebulous way, a trap he can't agree...

    The conditions of John Hinckley Jr.'s full-time release from a psychiatric hospital after a three-decade long commitment are a laundry list of dos and don'ts meant to help him assimilate into society — he can’t own a gun, he must work or volunteer three days a week, and he can't have any overnight guests while staying alone at his mother’s home in Williamsburg, Virginia. But one privilege that won’t be curtailed any longer is his right to vote - meaning that come November, the only living man to have shot a U.S. president could register to be among the millions...

    After a disastrous week of feuds and plummeting poll numbers, Republican leaders have concluded that Donald J. Trump is a threat to the party’s fortunes and have begun discussing how soon their endangered candidates should explicitly distance themselves from the presidential nominee. For Republicans in close races, top strategists say, the issue is no longer in doubt. One House Republican has already started airing an ad vowing to stand up to Mr. Trump if he is elected president, and others are expected to press similar themes in the weeks ahead. In the world of Republican "super PACs," strategists are going...

    Contentious as it might sound, there are significant similarities between the Islamic State terrorist organization, ISIS, and the National Rifle Association (NRA). Of course there are differences as well, but examining issues of congruence adds another dimension to the gun violence controversy. The most important parallels between ISIS and the NRA are: Institutionally, both organizations are remorseless about the deaths of victims Both use fear and intimidation to obtain their objectives Both assume their ideology is superior to the wishes of the majority of citizens Both have intensely loyal followers Both recruit and indoctrinate members who are ignorant of the...

    In the past five years ESPN has lost 11,346,000 subscribers according to Nielsen data. If you combine that with ESPN2 and ESPNU subscriber losses this means that ESPN has lost over a billion dollars in cable and satellite revenue just in the past five years, an average of $200 million each year. That total of a billion dollars hits ESPN in the pocketbook not just on a yearly basis, but for every year going forward. It's gone forever. That's not just bad, this is downright cataclysmic. And it's getting worse. In the past year ESPN lost 4.159 million subscribers, that's...

Donald Trump, the unsinkable candidate who seemed immune to political consequences while winning Republican presidential primaries month after month, now finds himself with an ailing campaign and a bad case of personal toxicity. Cable TV and other news media are obsessed with fallout within Team Trump and dissension in the Republican Party.

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus was described as "very frustrated" with and deeply disturbed by Trump's behavior over the past week, having run out of excuses to make on the nominee’s behalf to donors and other party leaders, according to multiple people familiar with the events.

Wasserman Schultz had ridden off into the sunset, "honorary" chair of the Clinton campaign, nothing left for her to do but ensure that Hillary Clinton becomes the next President of the United States. Her reward for loyal servitude to the queen–extending back to time spent with the Clinton campaign prior to becoming DNC Chair–would in due time be delivered. Then came word from the Sanders campaign. Its staff would be...

    Observers of Hillary Clinton over the past six months or so will have noticed an incessant coughing and clearing of her throat that has plagued the former first lady across that time frame. During her headline speech on Thursday at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Clinton noticeably cleared her throat twenty-two times. In and of itself, it could be written off as temporarily being under the weather. Given its persistence, however, questions arise about the Democrats' presidential nominee. She seemed to have deliberately timed her throat clearing during manufactured applause directed by her audience managers. Watch a montage of...

    Former Los Angeles mayor and potential California gubernatorial candidate Antonio Villaraigosa told the Democratic National Convention the party "must stand up and fight for these 11 million" illegal aliens in the United States, "for we are our brother's keeper." "These 11 million people have no credentials to this hall," Villaraigosa said, "they don't even have a vote."
  • A Democrat finally calls for defeating ISIS - and gets booed

    On the third night of the Democratic convention, a speaker finally brought up defeating ISIS and other terrorists — only to be met with boos from the crowd. "These murderers must be stopped," declared former Secretary of Defense and CIA Director Leon Panetta. Cue the deafening chorus of boos, plus chants of "No more war!" from convention delegates. [Snip] [This] helps explain why no speaker brought up the terrorist threat - or groups like Boko Haram and ISIS - on the first two nights. This is the Democratic base that Hillary Clinton must deal with in the fall campaign. And...

    Hillary Clinton’s big night — a moment the former first lady and secretary of state has worked decades to achieve — could be a stormy affair, as disgruntled Bernie Sanders supporters threaten to disrupt her acceptance of the Democratic nomination for president, at the same time a vicious storm threatens to hit Philadelphia. A severe thunderstorm watch was put in place for Philadelphia late Thursday, and the rain already is coming down as convention-goers stream into the Wells Fargo Center. The convention all week had been blanketed by 90-degree heat and oppressive humidity -- broken when thunder clapped over the...

    After days of endorsements from celebrities, elected leaders and passionate supporters, Hillary Clinton will be introduced Thursday night by the woman who knows her simply as mom. [Snip] It's part of a campaign effort to show the softer side of the former first lady, senator and secretary of state. And it's hardly a new role for 36-year-old Chelsea, who works for the Clinton Foundation and recently gave birth to her second child. She has been active in the campaign, as with her mother’s past campaigns. She was at the convention Wednesday night, as her father called her birth "the greatest...

    Donald Trump, perhaps unsurprisingly, was among the first to criticize former President Bill Clinton's speech at the Democratic National Convention last night, saying he left out "the most interesting chapter." As The Hill reports, it was a reference to Clinton's affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, and other 1990s scandals that drew headlines during the Clinton administration. "Even the story told by her husband last night, he left out the most interesting chapter. I won't get into that," Trump said Wednesday during a press conference at his Miami-area hotel of President Clinton's speech. "The chapter that I really waited...

    Donald Trump says all kinds of crazy things on the campaign trail. But this one could open him up to prosecution—if the Department of Justice was really willing to go there. Did Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump just call for a felony to be committed? On Wednesday, he urged a foreign government to hack an American citizen and release personal emails. "Russia, if you're listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing" from emails that Hillary Clinton turned over to the State Department, Trump said in a lengthy press conference in Doral, Fla. "I think...

    If Hillary Clinton wins the presidency, Bill Clinton will not become a regular at cabinet meetings, his wife's advisers say. He will not be invited into the Situation Room. He will step away from his family's foundation work and may not even have an office in the West Wing, given the undesirable optics of a former president and husband looking over the shoulder of the first female commander in chief. But the steps Clinton aides are planning to shape his new life do little to address a potentially thornier problem: Historically, when Mr. Clinton does not have a job to...

    Many of those inspired by Sen. Bernie Sanders' insurgent campaign are now unwilling or reluctant to fall into line with his pleas to support Clinton. Chants of "Bernie!", and boos whenever Hillary Clinton’s name was mentioned, filled the opening hours of the Democratic National Convention, with delegates supporting Sen. Bernie Sanders (I) of Vermont repeatedly drowning out other speakers with their vocal dissent. Never mind that after the weekend’s Wikileaks scandal revealed bias against Senator Sanders, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) issued a formal apology, forced the resignation of DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and moved Senator Sanders’ speech to...

    Bernie Sanders has endorsed Hillary Clinton, but that doesn’t mean he trusts her. Speaking at a Bloomberg Politics forum Tuesday, Sanders was asked if Clinton could be trusted to enact the left-leaning Democratic platform. "Sorry, I'm not going to get into the trusted or not. Hillary Clinton, you know, as I just said a moment ago, (you asked me to) characterize somebody in a way I’m not going to. Hillary Clinton is a very, very intelligent person … I’ve known her for 25 years."
