    Media Trackers ^ | August 29, 2016 | Brian Sikma
    When Dan Backer sets up a conservative group, rest assured that high priced vendors and consultants are about to make a boatload of money off of unsuspecting donors. Far from being a true believer intent on building up conservative ideas and conservative candidates, Backer uses a vast array of allegedly conservative organizations to beg money from donors and then use the majority of those funds to line the pockets of well connected insiders. Operating out of his firm’s office in Alexandria, Virginia, Backer has established himself as the king of the “scam PAC,” a type of political group that promises...

    Hillary Clinton has announced that she is dropping out of Free Republic, the online website for conservative discussion. Known by her handle, hilLIARy, Clinton has braved the heat at Free Republic up until this recent freep-a-thon. "I couldn't take it, anymore." She said. "People just kept giving and giving, donating and donating, and I was there to troll them into not donating. It was so disheartening." Asked about accomplices, Hillary pointed to a solid cadre of Republicans who are siding with her in the nevertrump and antitrump movement. "They've been my friends for years.

Campaign manager Kellyanne Conway told Fox News the two would discuss illegal immigration, trade and drugs. Trump running mate Mike Pence also said they would begin a conversation about a proposed border wall, along with other issues.

    The Asian American Coalition for Education lodged a complaint with Department of Education last Wednesday, accusing Cornell and Columbia University of discriminating against an Asian student in the admissions process.

Still, it would surprise no one if Mr. Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping were to announce the ratification of the sweeping climate change agreement before the Sunday opening of the Group of 20 summit in Hangzhou, Zhejiang. White House senior adviser Brian Deese said the president has the legal authority to ratify the accord without the two-thirds Senate vote required...

And as they prepare to mark the 'feast of sacrifice' there are concerns among the Muslim community that people will misinterpret the festivities as a celebration of the attacks, which saw terrorists flying hijacked jets into...

Moreover, Barillas added that the Department of Justice feels that to ask migrant workers for more work authorization forms could constitute a violation of a provision within the Immigration and Nationality Act that says employers cannot give excessive demands: The Justice Department released a video this week encouraging companies not to terminate immigrants after their employment authorization expires, and indicated that doing so is a form of discrimination. […]The video then tells viewers that the federal government has extended employment authorization...

    When you combine Hillary Clinton’s lack of appeal with her alleged ethically questionable dealings regarding paid access at the Clinton Foundation, you’re going to take a hit in the polls. In fact, in the past three days, Clinton has dropped seven points against Donald Trump. Nationally, she still leads by five, but that’s still within striking distance of the Republican nominee. That says more about her than Trump. Both are widely unpopular standard bearers for their respective political parties, but Clinton just seems incapable of breaking 50 percent. There is some silver linings for the Clinton campaign. They’re still leading...

When four candidates are included in the poll — taking in Green Party candidate Jill Stein and Libertarian Gary Johnson — Clinton’s lead narrows to just 3 points, 39%-36% — a statistical dead heat, given the poll’s margin of error of 3 points. The poll was taken Aug. 22-25, over a period where Clinton accused Trump of aligning with the Ku...

The recommendation, which must now be considered by prosecutors before becoming formal charges, was made in a filing seen by AFP. A judge would still have to decide whether to accept the charges. The development comes as Lula's successor and protege Dilma Rousseff fights an impeachment trial in the Senate.

    “Donald Trump is tied with Hillary Clinton in Ohio, and that was before we found out that she put the secretary of state’s office up for sale like the Lincoln Bedroom was when Bill Clinton was president,” Scott said in an emailed statement. “This poll shows that independent voters are looking for an outsider like Donald Trump who is working for them – not special interests. Our ads are working to pull the cover back on Hillary’s legacy of corruption, and that means more and more voters will support Donald Trump.” ... Scott is the head of the Rebuilding America...

Judicial Watch said the new cache includes previously unreleased email exchanges in which former Abedin “provided influential Clinton Foundation donors special, expedited access to the secretary of state.” Judicial Watch added that in many...
