    arly last August, an envelope with extraordinary handling restrictions arrived at the White House. Sent by courier from the CIA, it carried “eyes only” instructions that its contents be shown to just four people: President Barack Obama and three senior aides. Inside was an intelligence bombshell, a report drawn from sourcing deep inside the Russian government that detailed Russian President Vladi­mir Putin’s direct involvement in a cyber campaign to disrupt and discredit the U.S. presidential race.

    Video about the possible use of seat-fillers at the 2016 Democrat Convention in Philadelphia. Normal seeming people, including a DNC delegate, talk on camera making the case that huge numbers of delegates left the convention. Empty seats were filled with paid actors. One delegate asserts that people present in the convention hall are portrayed as Bernie delegates but are again, paid actors. He notes he does not recognize these "new" people and doesn't believe they are delegates. Another man notes that the hall was extremely empty until paid actors showed up en masse and films the empty seats on his...

    Aszterbaum: ....The media mostly complied with the DNC in order to silence dissent. Bernie delegates were denied access to the convention floor until Hillary's operatives had taken up the seats closest to the stage, blocking dissenters from being heard or seen. White noise machines were installed over the Bernie delegates. Hillary delegates were given large signs and American flags and given instructions to block Bernie delegates from view, and to issue loud shouts of "Hillary!" and "USA!" whenever Bernie Delegates tried to bring important issues into the discussion on the convention floor using signs and three targeted chants: "No More...

    But, First… The reason we have to elect Donald Trump is because we need to numb the American people to the distortion and lies of the media and politicians. The more of this hysteria we experience, the tougher our emotional skin will become. Trump commented on Tuesday in a campaign rally that he could essentially find the cure for a terminal disease and the reaction from the media and his opponents would be negative. Essentially, there is no accountability for lies in our culture and very little incentive for the truth any longer. Sensationalism sells. Even worse, the distortion of...

    Khizr Khan is the father of a U.S. soldier who died in Iraq who spoke poignantly of the loss of his son and then used that platform to attack Donald Trump. On Sunday he tweeted further disparaging remarks about Melania. Google shows this for his law practice: Khan, Khizr M.

But, when one American flag began falling behind Hillary aide Huma Abedin, the staff around Clinton hardly blinked an eye at the sight. Check out the lack of respect here:

    Environmentalists should be pleased with Hillary Clinton's acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention Thursday night, because it was largely recycled talking points we have heard for decades. Putting aside the theatrics designed to make Hillary Clinton appear to be something she is not -- the white pantsuit was a nice touch, as white is traditionally the color of purity and also the color of the suffragettes -- we've heard it all before. First there was the charge that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump cannot be trusted with the nuclear codes. The same was said about Ronald Reagan in 1980....

    Hillary Clinton made history by being the first woman nominated by a major party for president of the United States. She delivered a speech that laid out a progressive vision for AmericaÂ’s future, along with assurances that she is the person who will bring certainty and resolve in our foreign policy, especially in the war on terror. It was a brief bit in her speech, but it was said nonetheless. The problem, of course, is that Clinton left our state secrets vulnerable to foreign actors through her private email system that wasnÂ’t approved by the State Department. Yet, letÂ’s lay...

USA!" to stop because it's a "Trump chant." Crowd chanting "USA! USA!" Delegate in front of me stands up and yells, "Stop that!

    After a week of raucous protests that some had hoped and others had feared would disrupt the city and the Democratic National Convention, Thursday saw emptying streets, packing protesters, and the dying flame of their clamor. Across the city, smatterings of protesters held out - and one group planned a final march from South Philadelphia to the Wells Fargo Center Thursday night, a last chance to rally with delegates in the arena. But the demonstrations that had filled Philadelphia's streets day and night began fizzling on the convention's last day as severe thunderstorms rumbled into the city and exhaustion reigned....

    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...

    Well, well, well it seems that requiring voter I.D. to actually cast a VOTE in an election is racist, but requiring one to get into the DNC Convention somehow isn’t? Something as IMPORTANT as voting, where people need to know their vote counts, shouldn’t require identification according to Democrats, but the hypocrites require I.D. for their left wing loon convention?

    …but this isn’t the first time Democrats have practiced to deceive. In fact, the Clintons, Obama, Biden, Reid, and Pelosi have had quite a bit of practice over the past two presidential terms, haven’t they? The DNC display in Philadelphia has been impressive to be sure. Because establishment Democrats rigged the game for Hillary, they were ready for a showy if shallow unity frosted over by descriptions of a world only their Kool Aid believers wish to see. First Lady Michelle Obama—a powerful and effective speaker in her own right—told us she and her husband knew their time in the...

    I’m in Philadelphia, sweating to death in the climate change (which used to be called “summer”) and learning just how horrible this country is. Who knew? My takeaway from the Democratic National Convention so far is that we’re a sexist, racist, homophobic country full of monsters hunting young black men, sex traffickers, and greedy people … and those last two weren’t a reference to Bill Clinton. The worst part is it’s “systemic,” meaning it is part of the fabric of our nation, according to these progressives. It’s part of the foundation upon which this country was built, and if the...

    Summary PHILADELPHIA — The president headlined the night’s speeches, and a few of his boasts of his record headline our fact-checking report: President Barack Obama claimed that under his administration, “we finally began to wean ourselves off foreign oil,” but dependency on imported oil had begun to drop years before he took office. The president repeated a frequent boast that the U.S. “doubled our production of clean energy” during his tenure. Monthly renewable energy production has gone up 40 percent. Obama said deficits have “come down” under his administration. That’s true, but they are expected to rise again soon under...

    Hundreds of Sen. Bernie Sanders' most devoted followers vowed Wednesday to keep their political revolution alive, returning to the streets with renewed energy on the third day of the Democratic National Convention. For more than six hours at a plaza near City Hall, speakers including dozens of Sanders delegates yelled out to a crowd that swelled to more than 400 people. Despite pleas for unity, including one from Sanders himself, many said they would not fall in line. "This revolution will not end after the DNC!" shouted Gary Frazier, Philadelphia coordinator for the advocacy group Black Men for Bernie, which...

    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...
