    The South Carolina Republican, who previously went on record to say he's not voting for Trump nor Clinton, has now put himself in a position to play pundit and he used his time onstage to explain the strengths and weaknesses of the two major party candidates. But first, as he started a Q&A with Bloomberg's Margaret Carlson, he told a joke. 'I have the sniffles and I'm not using cocaine. I promise you,' Graham said.

    Breitbart ^ | 29 Sep 2016 | MICHAEL PATRICK LEAHY
    Donald Trump addressed a packed house at a rally in Bedford, New Hampshire Thursday afternoon where he blasted Hillary Clinton, whom he said is “there for only one reason: to protect her donors and take their money.” “Hillary Clinton is an insider fighting only for herself and her donors. I’m an outsider fighting for you,” Trump said, contrasting himself with his rival for the presidency. “Follow the money,” he continued, hitting on a theme that has been central to his criticism of Clinton. “The large corporations who support terrible trade deals… they’re donating to Hillary Clinton. It’s called follow the...

    For me, it will be difficult to view USA Today from now on as the newspaper it once was. After all, when an editorial board admits this sort of bias, it’s reasonable to suspect they’ll see fit to deviate from other normal editorial policies, slanting their news coverage in subtle if not overt ways.

    It is time for the Trump campaign to embrace new language regarding the MSM`s clear disregard for nuetrality It is no longer accurate or effective to refer to it as media bias. Not only is media bias an innacurate term, it`s a term that is used so often, that people tune it out. The truth of the matter is much worse than simply media bias.The new language Trump needs to use in the debates is to call it a conspiracy. We are dealing with a conspiracy to keep pertinent information from the voting public.If he faces the same lopsided questioning...

"I thought it was a little inappropriate for a person to overhear a frail, 92-year-old man in a private setting at a reception for the Points of Light Foundation, which focuses on volunteerism, to hear this and then immediately go on Facebook and put it on there, and go on national television and not even show up at the board meeting," Bush told NBC News' Jordan Frasier Thursday evening.

    LA Times ^ | Sept. 29, 2016 | LAT editorial
    USA Today broke its 34-year tradition of not endorsing in a presidential race, publishing a scathing argument against voting for Donald Trump. The editorial board unanimously found Trump "unfit for the presidency" and the editorial, published Thursday, goes on to list the reasons why, among them: his "erratic" behavior and his "checkered" business past. The anti-Trump sentiment does not translate into an enthusiastic Clinton endorsement. The piece notes that although some editorial board members admire her record, others have "serious reservations about Clinton’s sense of entitlement, her lack of candor and her extreme carelessness in handling classified information."

    Kathy Shelton was just 12 years old when a 41-year-old drifter raped her on the side of a desolate Arkansas road in 1975. In 1975, Clinton served as the defense lawyer for Thomas Alfred Taylor, a 41-year-old factory worker accused of raping Shelton after luring her to his car. Taylor pleaded down to 'unlawful fondling of a minor' and served less than a year in prison after Clinton was able to block the admission of forensic evidence that linked her client to the crime. Shelton said Clinton accused her during the case of 'seeking out older men', and demanded that...

During a press availability on her plane after landing in Chicago, Clinton took a range of questions including one about third party candidate Gary Johnson who, on MSNBC Wednesday night, was unable to name a single foreign leader when asked by Chris Matthews who his favorite foreign leader was. When Clinton was asked the same question, she joked sarcastically, "Oh, let me...

As Politico on Thursday makes clear, Saturday Night Live will be going after Donald Trump leading into the election starting with this weekend's episode. To make sure of this, politically unhinged Alec Baldwin will be portraying Trump. Perhaps Darrell Hammond is not partisan enough and plays it for that old fashioned thing called laughs.

    One would think there is protocol in place for when a presidential nominee falls ill, but surprisingly there is no official guideline. In fact, until the Twenty-Fifth Amendment was passed after the Wilson presidency, there was no clear definition of what being “unable to fulfill the duties of President” meant. With Hillary Clinton’s recent health issues, we have to consider the very real possibility that our next president might fall ill, which poses the question: “What happens next?” For that answer we must look to history, and the most obvious example is Woodrow Wilson. President Wilson suffered a massive stroke...

    Fewer people are watching the NFL on TV, and no one really knows why. The NFL Players Association admits that the trend is an obvious concern. The league has kept quiet, likely fearful that talking about the situation would lend credence to the dynamic, possibly causing other fans who are still watching the games to say, “Maybe I should stop, too.” The decline has become a mystery, for the media and surely for the NFL.

    Republican nominee Donald Trump's remarks on women haven't gone unnoticed by Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly, who had a fiery exchange with Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway over her dismissing accusations of misogyny made against her candidate. During an interview on "The Kelly File" Wednesday night, Conway complained the Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton focused too much on Trump's history with women. Conway said Trump's opinion was that "it's not nice that you're running hundreds of millions of dollars in negative ads against me, and he has a point."

    In my neck of the woods Hillary is running an ad that starts with an audio of Trump saying something about a woman's figure (maybe from a beauty pageant, who knows?). The ad then asks, is the role model you want for your daughters? The ad ends with pictures of little girls looking sad. Trump needs to counter this. Let soccer moms hear that audio of Hillary laughing as she talks about how she successfully defended a child rapist. Get it on TV. Get it on Facebook.
