    DEMOCRAT HILLARY CLINTON and Republican Donald Trump will debate on national television for the first time Monday night, and the stakes could not be higher. The presidency and, by extension, the country's future - maybe the world's - could hinge on what they say and how they say it. Or so we have been told - in breathless pre-event speculation about everything from whether the moderator, NBC's Lester Holt, will intervene to correct a candidate who strays from the truth, to whether one candidate or the other will be able to goad his or her opponent into a campaign-altering gaffe...

    The only way to talk someone out of voting for Trump is to stop trying to talk them out of voting for Trump. To all my fellow progressives who’ve been busily browbeating supporters of this dangerous demagogue, you’re invited to become an early adopter of a far more rewarding, non-adversarial approach called “powerful non-defensive communication.” According to most commentators, the prototypical Trump supporter is an uneducated, narrow-minded bigot with legitimate grievances against the faltering economy which Trump has skillfully alchemized into violent rage toward non-whites, Muslims and successful women. The Trump voter is a patriarchal authoritarian primed since early childhood...

    American Thinker ^ | September 26, 2016 | Jonathan F. Keiler
    We now know that the Justice Department granted immunity to at least five of Hillary Clinton's close aides during the FBI's investigation of her email scam. However, it's hard to understand, in light of the ultimate disposition of the case, why Justice gave these people immunity. Representative Jason Chaffetz, whose committee has the herculean task of cleaning the Augean Clinton State Department stables, revealed the previously unpublicized immunity deals. He was quoted as saying of them, "[N]o wonder they couldn't prosecute a case" referring to the FBI and Justice Department. In fact, in normal circumstances, Chaffetz is exactly wrong. Immunity...

    Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will meet Monday at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y., for their first presidential debate — the face-to-face culmination of months of fierce political battle. They will bring their own aims and political baggage, their own styles and quirks. The clash between Clinton, the Democratic nominee, and Trump, the Republican nominee, represents the most dramatic showdown yet in an already raucous election season, as well as an opportunity for these universally known personalities to reintroduce themselves to voters that have deep reservations or remain undecided.
  • CNN/ORC polls: Trump, Clinton deadlocked in Colorado, Pennsylvania

    (CNN)Just one point separates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in two states that are critical to both candidates' chances of becoming president, according to new CNN/ORC polls in Pennsylvania and Colorado. In Colorado, likely voters break 42% for Trump, 41% for Clinton, 13% for Libertarian Gary Johnson and 3% for Green Party candidate Jill Stein. Pennsylvania's likely voters split 45% for Clinton, 44% for Trump, 6% for Johnson and 3% for Stein. Those divides are well within each poll's 3.5-point margin of sampling error.

A comparison like that would be an empty exercise in a race where one candidate — our choice, Hillary Clinton — has a record of service and a raft of pragmatic ideas, and the other, Donald Trump, discloses nothing concrete about himself or his plans while promising the moon and offering the stars on layaway.

    Donna Brazile has been a fixture for years on talking-head shows. This Insurrectionist has always thought of her as an affable but relatively reserved soul. Reserved? There’s another side to Donna that I was obviously missing! Right from the beginning of her Morning Joe appearance today, in which she swayed gracefully in her seat while greeting “brother Ben” Ginsburg, Brazile was a one-woman show of expressive gestures and phrases. Just sit back, roll the video, and appreciate Donna’s very animated performance, which ends with her telling Joe Scarborough “I love you—thank you boo.” View the video here.

In a campaign that has featured many unexpected blockbuster developments, here comes a massive moment that has been expected all along: the first actual debate between the two major party nominees. From the time it became clear that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton would be the two candidates on this stage, the narrative has been that it was her election to lose, and that Trump would need a stellar performance to have the remotest shot at beating her November 8. Then real voters, and real events, intervened. Plenty of real Republican voters have shed their NeverTrump...

According to her, this worship of strength reflects the instability and the crisis of the Arab world, a crisis which is...

It’s been 20 days Hillary Clinton has stepped foot into this class battleground state, and she’s not expected to visit it again in the month of September,” Zeleny said.

She's guilty of both. Her revised tax plan‎ would raise the estate tax to as high as 65% -- up from 40% today. She would also apply the hated death tax to as many as twice the number of estates. It's one of her dumbest ideas...

Sanders, the runner-up in the Democratic primaries, consistently outperformed Clinton among young voters.

    Entire Title: "Hillary Clinton to use larger podium than Donald Trump at first debate to make up for height disadvantage: report" Hillary Clinton says that we’re “stronger together,” but even she can’t deny Donald Trump is taller. The Democratic nominee, who is 5-foot-4, has apparently enlisted the help of a raised podium for the first presidential debate against Donald Trump, who is 6-foot-3, Monday night, photos of the two podiums show. According to WABC’s Rita Cosby, one of the two podiums inside the debate hall at Hofstra University, in Hempstead, N.Y., is larger than the other. It is believed that...

    In Sarasota Florida, “Barnicle Bill’s Seafood” owner William Davis, changed the restaurant’s marquee now reading, “NRA member, concealed carry OK, I am a deplorable, vote Trump.” Naturally, Democrats were outraged and decided to plan a protest. Trump supporters heard the protest was happening and set up a counter protest and it wasn’t even close. Hundreds of Trump supporters showed up to show support for the restaurant owner while just a few Hillary supporters attended their planned protest. The media covered this quite well and there wasn’t any spin. Embarrassing moment for Florida Democrats.

    When, after the 2012 election, it was discovered that there were oddities in the voting, such as the 59 different Philadelphia voting divisions where Mitt Romeny got zero votes, to Barack Obama’s 19,605, WND reported on the Big List of vote fraud reports. Including reports like that from a poll watcher in Pennsylvania who told WND up to 10 percent of the ballots cast at a polling station there reverted to a default, which gave Barack Obama a vote no matter who the voter had selected. Or the report from Chicago elections worker Steve Pickrum who told WND as an...

    Ever since Donald Trump first announced his candidacy, and yard signs for his primary run began to be placed in supporter's yards, there have been numerous cases of vandalism/theft of those signs. In addition to signs being stolen, reports have also surfaced of people's cars being vandalized for having Trump bumper stickers supporting the Republican presidential candidate. In fact, one voter even set booby traps around his Trump signs because they were constantly being stolen. The latest theft comes from an employee of WOW Pool & Lawn, a company that offers home care services in Naples, Florida, who apparently on...

    Just weeks before the Nov. 8 election, a federal appeals court has ruled that Ohio’s method of purging names of inactive voters from voter rolls is unconstitutional. Ohio, a battleground state in the presidential race, removed the names of tens of thousands of registered voters under what it calls its “supplemental process." Under this controversial method, voters were taken off the registration rolls after six years of not voting, regardless of whether they remained eligible to vote. ......

    NEW YORK CITY, New York — Republican nominee for president Donald J. Trump has taken the lead in Colorado and maintains his lead in Ohio, two new Breitbart News Network/Gravis Marketing polls released on Sunday show. The promising polls for Trump come just before the all-important debate an hour from here on Monday night, at Hofstra University on Long Island. In Colorado, a swing state with 9 electoral votes, Trump leads Democratic nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton by 4 points—outside the survey’s 3.5 percent margin of error. Trump, at 41 percent, leads Clinton—who has just 37 percent. Libertarian Gary Johnson takes...

    Clinton Campaign Accepting The Loss of Ohio…. Facing continually diminishing poll results in Ohio CNN’s Jeff Zeleny reports the Clinton team is essentially ceding the state to save resources. Michigan could be the next to drop. Additionally, Team Clinton are relying almost exclusively on Philadelphia, and to a lesser extent Pittsburgh, to fend off a similar situation in Pennsylvania. Donald Trump’s economic message and outlined ‘America-First’ policy agenda is most effective in the states where Clinton/Bush/Obama… and now candidate Clinton, policies have been the most disastrous for the middle class workers.
