  • Joy Reid Shuts Down Conservative Latino Who Brings up Hillary's Praise of Eugenicist Sanger

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    On Joy Reid’s MSNBC show today, conservative Latino Alfonso Aguilar cited Hillary Clinton’s praise of the eugenicist Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood. Hillary has said that she “admire[s] Margaret Sanger enormously.” Reid responded by saying Sanger was not a legitimate issue because she is a “dead person.” Even worse, when Aguilar tried to make that point that a majority of abortions performed by Planned Parenthood are on minority women, Reid shut Aguilar down, calling his statement “incredibly offensive. I think that smear of Planned Parenthood cannot go forward and we’re not going to continue with that line of...
  • Nervous Nellies regarding the borders, but willing to dive into the abyss with Hillary

    08/27/2016 11:59:49 AM PDT · by Jim Robinson · 5 replies
    The recent argument regarding softer tones on the border issue is driving me nuts. Trump is going to build the wall and enforce the law and deport as many illegal aliens as he possibly can! And end sanctuary cities. And try to end anchor babies. Just enforcing the law alone will cause millions of illegal aliens to leave. For crying out loud, when is the last time we had a president of EITHER PARTY willing to do anything at all about the borders? I think you'd have to go all the way back to Eisenhower. Other than that: There is...

    Dear Freepers, are any of you volunteering for Team Trump in your state? I did that here in California for the primaries, now I have been invited by Team Trump to volunteer for the general. I am just a bit confused as to the script or template the Team is using. If any of you are also volunteers, is it clear to you how to make the calls and what to ask the caller? It would be great to chat with another volunteer.
  • Absentee ballot returns show spike in unlikely voters weighing in on Florida’s primary

    Miami Herald ^ | August 25th, 2016 | By ADAM C. SMITH
    The political team at the Florida Chamber of Commerce has come across a remarkable trend this campaign season: A huge spike in mail voting by people who rarely vote in primary elections. Almost half of the mail ballots returned so far for Tuesday’s primary election have come from Floridians who voted in either one or zero of the past four primary elections. That means a big, decisive chunk of the vote will come from people who have not been polled, and potentially not courted, targeted or accounted for by countless campaigns across the state. “This is huge,” said Marian Johnson,...

    Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham may play the role of Hillary Clinton in Donald Trump’s prerpation for the upcoming presidential debates, according to the Washington Post. Trump is meeting with Ingraham, former Fox News Channel chairman Roger Ailes, and former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani to talk over possible debate preparation strategies, the Post reported. Some top officials within the campaign have hinted at an unconventional debate prep strategy. “He’s an unconventional candidate, so debate prep in the classic sense doesn’t apply to him,” campaign manager Kellyanne Conway told the Post. “That applies to the accoutrements that are usually associated...

    In what some are calling his “worst tweet yet,” Donald Trump weighed in on the Chicago shooting death of Nykea Aldridge on Saturday. Aldridge, 32, is the cousin of NBA star Dwyane Wade. She was pushing her baby in a stroller down a Chicago street on Friday when, according to a family spokesman, she was caught in the crossfire of a gun fight between two men. Aldridge was struck in the head and arm and killed. The baby was unharmed. Trump took the shooting as an opportunity to reach out to black voters, tweeting “Dwayne Wade’s cousin was just shot...

    I wondered how a comparatively neutral search engine, not like Google, Bing or Yahoo, would trend "Clinton Body Count" vs. "Trump Body Count". Trump is about as old as Clinton, presumably he's had civil conflicts with people in his business life, I thought there might be SOMETHING about his ordering a hit on some unfavored associate. But aside from The Daily Beast screaming something about "Donald Trump Makes Worst Mass Shooting in U.S. History All About Him", I can't find any trend about "Trump Body Count" that doesn't immediately jump track over to Clinton.

    Hillary Clinton spent Saturday morning at an FBI facility near her New York home meeting with staffers from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence who briefed her on major threats and emerging concerns around the world. Clinton arrived at the office in White Plains, New York, which is roughly 20 minutes from her Chappaqua home, about 9 a.m. The meeting lasted over two hours and she attended it alone, a campaign aide said. The briefing comes 10 days after her main rival, Donald Trump, received his first classified briefing as the Republican Party’s nominee. Trump took two top...

    In her first national media interview in nearly a month, Hillary Clinton on Tuesday night defended herself from accusations that she gave special access to Clinton Foundation donors while serving as Secretary of State. Speaking to CNN's Anderson Cooper, Clinton said her work at the State Department was never influenced by any outside forces. "I made policy decisions based on what I thought was right to keep Americans safe and protect U.S. interests abroad," she said. Clinton's comments came in response to an Associated Press story asserting more than half of the meetings Clinton took with representatives of non-governmental interests...

    Donald Trump's outreach to black voters was predictably met with unbridled, laughably over-the-top scorn and derision from Democrats and their media allies – media allies who at this point are so blatantly unfair that one might think they would no longer even have the audacity to object to being mocked as Clinton shills. Gripped by fear that Donald Trump's efforts might peel black votes from Democrats in key battleground states, the Clinton campaign has embraced the lowest brand of gutter politics: tying Donald Trump to the KKK and other white supremacist groups. While slandering Republicans as racists has been a...

    (CNN)It's the most deceptive sign in politics. Every four years, a presidential candidate gazes out over a vast crowd and convinces themselves the White House is there for the taking. In 2016, the general election candidate drawing the biggest and loudest crowds is Donald Trump. "We got to Oklahoma, we have 25,000 people. We had 21,000 people in Dallas, we had 35,000 people in Mobile, Alabama. We get these massive crowds," Trump said in Florida earlier this month. "Look, if she had 500 people I would be surprised," he added, poking fun at Hillary Clinton's more intimate events.During the primaries,...

    American Thinker ^ | August 27, 2016 | William F. Marshall
    Perhaps the most interesting development in this most interesting of presidential election seasons has been the convergence of the power of the Freedom of Information Act with the power of the Internet. The impact of these conjoined forces may well determine the political fate of one of our presidential candidates. The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) was signed into law, fittingly, on July 4, 1966. This piece of legislation, which has been amended and strengthened numerous times since its inception, is a testament to that unique "American exceptionalism" of which Barack Obama was so famously dismissive at a NATO summit...

    Facebook has fired its Trending News team, responsible for curating the social media network’s “Trending News” list, after Breitbart Tech began to reveal their progressive biases last month. The team is set to be replaced by a team of engineers managing an algorithm. Facebook’s Trending News feature is supposed to present users with the most popular news topics being discussed across the platform. But a Gizmodo exposé in May revealed that Trending News operated much like a traditional newsroom, with a team of “curators” selecting stories they considered newsworthy. It was later revealed that the team artificially injected stories that...

    It has been 265 days since the Democrat Party presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, held a news conference. This type of press stonewalling is unprecedented for a presidential candidate in modern American political history. The American people have a right to know where presidential candidates stand on important issues and how they respond to various controversies. While her GOP opponent, Donald Trump, has held numerous and extensive news conferences in recent months, Hillary Clinton has employed a hide and go seek strategy with the press. Sadly, she has refused to engage the national news media in an open and honest manner...

Pretty compelling stuff, right? Not if it involves leftist billionaire George Soros. In this case, the mainstream press couldn't care less.

As they held up these signs, hordes of protesters around them spit, swore and physically pushed Trump supporters -- including women and children – as they walked in and out of the event. The irony is that these protestors that are so quick to cast...

    TRENTON — Donald Trump's apparent pivot away from his calls for mass deportations of millions of undocumented immigrants is partially the result of prodding by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, according to former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani. And, Giuliani says, even more Christie-inspired changes to Trump's immigration stance will be forthcoming, like his call for tracking immigrant visas like Fedex packages, and using the E-Verify system to reduce illegal labor. In an interview with NJ Advance Media on Thursday, Giuliani, a top adviser to the Republican presidential nominee, said Trump's recent reversal on immigration policy came after his inner...

Is there nothing that can be said about Trump that is positive? I think there is. Since his nomination by the Republican Party, Donald Trump has made a number of serious policy speeches. In each case he is saying things that no other Republican presidential candidate has said. What he is saying is worth listening to. On foreign policy, he has basically noted that our entire approach, from NATO to military bases, is based on...

Following the California primary, the NY Times reported on State Department diplomats issuing an internal memo “urging the United States to carry out military strikes against the government of President Bashar al Assad.” In early August Dennis Ross and Andrew Tabler opined in the NY Times about “The Case for (Finally) Bombing Assad”....

"I try to get four or five lines down as fast as possible so that they would be happy," he told NBC News, explaining that he penned the note as he waited for a limo to...

    Jeb Bush hammered Donald Trump Thursday after the Republican presidential nominee appeared open to major shifts on his immigration platform -- several of which echoed the former Florida governor's during the GOP primary fight. "All the things that Donald Trump railed against, he seems to be morphing into," Bush said in a radio interview with Rita Cosby of WABC. "It's kind of disturbing." When the two men were competing in the Republican presidential primary, Trump advocated for deporting millions of undocumented immigrants and blasted politicians like Bush who wanted to allow some to stay and seek legal status as long...

    As Hillary Clinton assailed Donald J. Trump on Thursday for fanning the flames of racism embraced by the “alt-right,” the community of activists that tends to lurk anonymously in the internet’s dark corners could hardly contain its glee. Mrs. Clinton’s speech was intended to link Mr. Trump to a fringe ideology of conspiracies and hate, but for the leaders of the alt-right, the attention from the Democratic presidential nominee was a moment in the political spotlight that offered a new level of credibility. It also provided a valuable opportunity for fund-raising and recruiting.
