  • Outside Haim Saban fundraiser for Hillary Clinton, Black Lives Matter protests for Palestinians

    08/25/2016 4:49:07 PM PDT · by 2ndDivisionVet · 1 replies
    Black Lives Matters reportedly was among several groups protesting on behalf of Palestinian rights outside a fundraiser for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton hosted by the Israeli-American billionaire Haim Saban and his wife, Cheryl. Monday’s event in Southern California at the Beverly Park home of the entertainment mogul brought in $5 million, the Jewish Insider reported, citing CNN. Some 80 people attended the fundraiser, paying $100,000 per couple, according to Variety. Saban has been one of Clinton’s principal backers for several years. The Sabans have already contributed nearly $10 million to super PACs supporting Clinton’s candidacy, according to the Jewish...

    They operate heavy machinery. They Uber. They gush over the Olympics. Their friends are Bernie Sanders supporters. They’re on the local baseball team. Yes, they want to make America great again, but Donald Trump’s supporters contain multitudes. They are not, on the whole, the white-devil, frothing Confederate fanatics baffled columnists have made them out to be. So who is Team Trump, really? We met up with locals waiting in line to attend a Trump rally in Altoona, Pa., where the population is 93.8 percent white (as opposed to the national proportion of 77.1 percent), and discussed the colony at Jamestown,...

    Republican presidential candidate continued to appeal to minority voters by promising them they won't 'get shot' if he is elected president, as he prepares to meet with minorities at Trump Tower in New York. Speaking to a few thousand people in Tampa Wednesday, Trump called African Americans 'great people' and promised to address their concerns by addressing failing schools and lost jobs. 'To the African American voter – great people. To the Hispanic voter who have been absolutely treated terribly, I say: What do you have to lose? What?' Trump said. 'I will fix it. I’ll be able to make...

    I asked a successful businessman the other day what he thought about Donald Trump. He turned his thumb down. Wow. "Are you going to vote for Hillary?" I asked with trepidation. "Of course not," he replied, almost insulted by the question. "I understand the concept of a binary decision." I got a similar response when I asked oil magnate T. Boone Pickens whether he would vote for Trump. He looked at me with a quizzical expression and replied: "Well, who else is there to vote for?" Right. Who else is there? Yet, amazingly, a caucus of lifelong Republican politicos in...

    Hillary Clinton took on two controversial topics in an interview on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on Monday. First, Kimmel quizzed the Democratic presidential candidate about news that broke earlier in the day of the release of additional emails from the time she served as secretary of state. "The State Department said that they have to release 15,000 emails by — the deadline is a couple of days before the debate," Kimmel said. "Are you concerned about that?" "No," Clinton responded. "Jimmy, my emails are so boring. And I'm embarrassed about that. They're so boring. So we've already released, I don't...

    Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, an adviser for Donald Trump's campaign, renewed rumors that something is wrong with Hillary Clinton's health. Talking to Shannon Bream on 'Fox News Sunday,' Giuliani suggested that the media was covering up 'several signs of illness' that he believed the former secretary of state was displaying. 'All you have to do is go online,' Giuliani said. 'Go online and put down "Hillary Clinton's illness." Take a look at the videos for yourself.' Giuliani was referring to a number of right-wing conspiratorial videos that suggest the 68-year-old Clinton is plagued by a number of...

    It’s pretty clear who Donald Trump wants to help, because he names them at every rally. Miners. Steelworkers. Guys on the assembly line, whose jobs are either being stolen by the Chinese or strangled to death by Obama’s regulations. If globalization has put your livelihood in jeopardy, Trump wants you on his side. And given his sky-high popularity among white men without a college degree, I’d argue this pitch is gaining traction. But here’s the weird thing: Folks in hard-hit industrial towns aren’t voting for Trump. When Michigan Republicans went to the polls in March, economists expected to see huge...

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and running mate Mike Pence will visit flood-damaged areas of Baton Rouge, La. Friday. Record flooding across Louisiana has killed at least 13 people. Over 85,000 people have registered for federal disaster assistance, more than 30,000 have been rescued, and an estimated 40,000 homes have been damaged. Trump addressed the flooding at a rally in Charlotte, N.C. Thursday night, calling Louisiana “a state that is very, very special to me.”

    The conventional wisdom doesn’t apply to such an unconventional nominee.Donald Trump won the Republican presidential nomination in part because his primary campaign message was far more in tune with an angry electorate than that of his rivals. However, Trump’s winning campaign was also helped mightily by a “Fatal Eight” set of miscalculations made by the opposition. These key mistakes included treating Trump as a mere celebrity rather than a serious candidate, failing to strategically attack the fledgling Trump candidacy in its crib, refusing to recognize that a candidate with a solid base can win in a crowded field even with...

For hackers to resort to such tactics would be highly unusual, but security specialists say it’s a realistic extension of Moscow’s robust information warfare efforts. This story is entirely self-serving for Democrats. It lays the groundwork for them to suggest anything embarrassing that turns up in...

    The RNC, the Republican Party elite, is currently dealing with the consequences of its own stupidity (which I would have used as the title, if I hadn’t used it before.) Their hatred for Donald Trump is not based on ideology, personality or even a genuine concern that Trump is the reincarnation of Adolf Hitler. It is the far more understandable sense that Trump’s success has rendered them irrelevant, that Trump has literally stolen the Republican Party from under their noses. And that is precisely what Trump has done. They are caught between a number of options, all bad for them...

The Federal Election Commission, which considered legal action against former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee for joking about fundraising, won’t punish Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid for admitting to violating an election law. The reason: It’s not worth the effort. The agency voted 4-0 against pursuing action after FEC lawyers wrote a four-page memo that said Reid’s fundraising committee admitted to failing to comply with an election law requirement, but that it wasn’t worth the time or money to prosecute.

Liberals and conservative Trump critics saw his comments, particularly his call for Russia to hack and release Hillary Clinton’s personal emails, as disastrous and disqualifying. Some argued that the Republican nominee felt the need to act out because the media was so focused on the Democrats. “Trump’s statement is impossible to defend on the merits,” wrote Dara Lind of Vox. “But it’s actually really easy to understand why he made it: Donald Trump hasn’t been in the news yet all week.”...

The 70-year-old real estate billionaire and TV personality delivered a speech that clocked in at 1 hour and 16 minutes, laying out his plans on issues like immigration, national security and job creation. “People who work hard but no longer have a voice — I am your voice,” Trump said, promising to repair Americans’ faith in government leadership.

    Black and white Americans have profoundly different views on racial equality, and a new survey finds they also differ on the extent to which a person’s race can be a burden or a benefit. For blacks, the answer is clear: 65% say “it is a lot more difficult to be black in this country than it is to be white.” Fewer than half as many whites (27%) agree. The racial gap in perceptions of white advantages is even starker: 62% of blacks say “white people benefit a great deal from advantages in society that black people do not have.” Just...

    The horrifying slayings of eight law enforcement officers in the past 10 days may come back to haunt Democrats funding protests against police behind the scenes in hopes of energizing black voters in November. Instead of juicing turnout for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, the unrest may wind up backfiring by whipping up public sympathy for police and creating an opportunity for Republicans to run on a law-and-order message, analysts say. “The proof of that will be on Election Day. But I would say the problem with the strategy is that it has contributed to a climate of support...

    Less than a week before the Republican National Convention kicks off, the GOP platform committee was racing into the night Tuesday to finish its work on a policy blueprint. A quadrennial exercise that occurs before each general election, a 112-member subset of the delegation gathers to hammer together the Republican Party’s official vision, a platform for the presidential nominee to campaign on. Construction of this year’s platform has taken on increased significance than documents drafted in past years. The party’s presumed presidential nominee, Donald Trump, has strayed from some traditional Republican positions.

Before the Grand Old Party picks its presidential nominee formally, a select set of delegates on the platform committee will spend the week staking out Republican positions on everything from domestic to international issues definitively.

    Like a game of whack-a-mole, Hillary Clinton's secret email server scandal continues this week as the former secretary of state has just one more day to explain to a federal court why she shouldn't have to testify under oath about the system. On Friday, the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch submitted a request for permission to depose Clinton, along with two other current and former government officials, as part of the ongoing Freedom of Information Act lawsuit looking into aide Huma Abedin's special employment arrangement with the State Department. 'As the primary driving force behind and principal user of the...

    Every so often, history dishes up an awful convergence of events that leave great nations with horrific leaders — who then go on to create even worse crises. If you think Donald Trump is too bizarre, too reckless, too racist, too ignorant, or too contradictory to get elected, think again. By the usual rules of politics, Trump should be lagging Hillary Clinton by twenty points. But he is down by less than five, depending on which poll you read. Clinton just had a terrible week, and so did America. Collisions of racial catastrophe should not play into the hands of...

    It’s the Donald Trump veep sweepstakes! Step right up and take your pick . . . The Morning Joe crew had fun playing the game this morning.

Mika Brzezinski, without naming names, pushed hard for someone with foreign policy experience. Finally, Joe Scarborough made the case for Chris Christie, as a tough, reliable campaigner: someone who is...

    Oklahoma’s governor, Mary Fallin, said Donald Trump was “trying to campaign as a racial healer”, as the presumptive Republican nominee tried to paint himself as a unifying force in a country feeling fractured over race, violence and policing. “I think that has been part of his message, if you watched what he said this week,” Fallin told CNN on Sunday, alluding to police shootings of two black men in Louisiana and Minnesota, and the murder of five officers in Dallas, Texas. “He talked about how devastating this was for Dallas, how we have to respect our law enforcement and we...
