    In an interview with Vice’s Shawna Thomas, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), the former chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, hit back at critics suggesting she tilted her party’s primary process in favor of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). “I will be frank with you,” she said. “If I was trying to rig the outcome of the primary, trust me, I could have — there are so many things that we, not I, we could have done to enhance the campaign of one candidate over another.”

    Current and past leaders of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) say they had no knowledge that the national party was helping to fund a dossier compiled by a British spy that contained scandalous accusations about President Trump. The Washington Post reported Tuesday that Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the DNC paid millions to the law firm Perkins Coie, where Democratic lawyer Marc Elias worked with the opposition research firm Fusion GPS to construct the memo, which was compiled by British spy Christopher Steele. The memo is at the center of several investigations into Russian meddling and it may have been used...
  • Debbie Wasserman Schultz Accused Of Florida Election Fraud

    Tim Canova has slammed Debbie Wasserman Schultz as a “corporate stooge” and refused to concede the Florida primary election to her amid claims of voting irregularities and possible election fraud. When asked by reporters if he had made the traditional concession phone call to Wasserman Shultz, Canova indicated that he would not congratulate her because he does not believe she has won a fair fight. “I’ll concede that Debbie Wasserman Schultz is a corporate stooge,” the Bernie Sanders backed candidate told reporters, according to the Sun Sentinel. “We’re fighting for American democracy,” said Canova, who got to 43 percent of...
  • Experts Find Evidence of Electronic "Vote-Flipping" in Tim Canova Loss to Wasserman-Schultz (tr)

    Weeks after Bernie Sanders protégé Tim Canova went down in defeat in a strong primary challenge to US Representative Debbie-Wasserman-Schultz, professional statisticians say they have uncovered the same kind of statistically unlikely voting pattern which was found in the 2016 Democratic primary between Hilary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. They are calling for a visual inspection of some or all of the actual ballots in order to rule out the presence of electronic "vote-flipping." Because the two counties involved both use vote-scanning machines which create digital images of the ballots, visual inspection of the ballots could consist of obtaining the digital...

    Even Debbie Wasserman-Schultz knows Hillary Clinton will need to be carried to the finish line. While trying to whip up a lethargic crowd in Coral Springs, Florida on Friday, the woman who paved the way at the DNC for Clinton’s nomination, said her supporters will have to carry Hillary on their shoulders to the White House. “Let’s get this place wound up!” Schultz yelled, trying to fire up the crowd. “I want to hear my people down here in south Florida,” she said. “I know you have a little more adrenaline than I’m feeling in this room right now, don’t...

    (CNSNews.com) - During the House floor debate on the Protect Life Act last week, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D- Texas) defended abortion as a “needed action” and referred to the heartbeat of a fetus as a “sound”. Voicing her opposition to the measure on Thursday, Jackson Lee referenced a previous Texas law, “Just as the courts ruled unconstitutional and upheld the provision of the Texas law that required a doctor to talk first to a woman seeking an abortion and to allow or force them both to listen, uh, to sounds that, uh, might discourage this needed action, this is...

The meaning ascribed to a comet's appearance is comprised of many factors, including the mythological story of the constellation that the comet's path highlights. This past autumn (2007), a remarkable comet, Holmes, appeared in the nightime sky, as a huge blue sphere (larger than the diameter of our sun). It's path of maximal brightness carried it through the constellation of Perseus, crossing in front of two of that constellation's stars in particular-...

    Helen Thomas, the Hearst columnist and long-time scourge of Republican presidents as UPI White House correspondent, was "miffed" at Doonesbury cartoonist Garry Trudeau because he joked that the rumors were that she was Harry Truman's lover: "I wished he said I was Jack Kennedy's lover." If that makes Thomas sound like a liberated woman, that would be in line with her recent Planned Parenthood luncheon speech in Iowa, where she claimed conservatives would love to deny women even their right to vote: "It seems now, more than ever, the Supreme Court is prepared to put Americans -- especially women --...

    MEXICO CITY - Demonstrators stormed a Wal-Mart on the outskirts of Mexico City on Tuesday, accusing the U.S.-based retailer of selling low-cost goods at the expense of workers, farmers and public markets. About 250 protesters chanted "Out! Out!" in front of Wal-Mart's corporate headquarters before entering the adjacent store, where they blocked aisles for about 30 minutes before leaving. There were no immediate reports of arrests, injuries or damage. Ruben Garcia, a Mexican citizen who works with San Francisco-based activist group Global Exchange, said the discount chain's low prices take business away from the country's traditional public markets and depress...

    KANDAHAR, Afghanistan (CP) - Bibi Sagima took a humiliating seat on a busy downtown street Friday, putting out her hand to beg for food with her eight-year-old son while clinging to faded hopes that her husband is still alive. Sagima and her boy, Ghami, are two of the thousands of refugees who poured from the Panjwaii district after the Canadian army led an offensive there to root out Taliban insurgents. Local officials estimate some 1,500 families left Panjwaii and surrounding areas to avoid fighting and intense bombardment by Canadian and NATO forces backing the assault. Sagima took refuge with a...

    PANJWAII, Afghanistan (CP) - Insurgents have been using an unguarded route to slip through the Canadian-led siege of this Taliban stronghold and join the fight, a key local leader and ally of international forces said Wednesday. While NATO has claimed 700 Taliban are trapped in the area, locals say there is an easy escape route to the west that has gone unguarded by Canadian and Afghan troops and allowed insurgents to resupply. Far from fleeing, an unknown number of insurgents are joining the battle against Canadian troops and their allies, according to Haji Kheerdin, the Zhari District elder. "One side...

    PANJWAI DISTRICT, AFGHANISTAN — Canadian troops pushed deep into the warren of fields in Panjwai district Wednesday morning, hunting Taliban under bright moonlight after enduring hours of co-ordinated attacks by the insurgents. The soldiers crept forward on foot, into terrain so difficult that armoured vehicles could not advance for fear of getting stuck in the rutted fields, irrigation trenches and dry canals. It was the first major incursion by either side in the past 24 hours, in the continuing struggle for control of Panjwai district. Operation Medusa, launched four days ago to control the volatile region southwest of Kandahar city,...

    PANJWAII, Afghanistan (CP) - Tracer rounds and exploding rockets lit up the sky Tuesday as Taliban insurgents launched brazen, co-ordinated attacks on Canadian armoured vehicles, wounding five soldiers in a battlefield west of Kandahar. A volley of eight to 10 rockets or mortars landed near a light armoured vehicle in the Panjwaii area, just north of the Arghandab River, where Canadians have fought dug-in Taliban insurgents. The five injured soldiers were evacuated to Kandahar Airfield, hours after five colleagues who died in weekend fighting were loaded onto a cargo plane destined for Canada. The injured men were all expected to...

    PANJWAII, Afghanistan - Five Canadian soldiers have been wounded in new battles west of Kandahar but their injuries are not considered serious. The soldiers were injured when Canadian light armoured vehicles came under mortar attack around 6:30 p.m. local time. The Canadians returned fire and called in NATO air strikes. Several buildings were seen in flames. Hours earlier, Canadian soldiers came under rifle fire. In the clash that followed, one suspected Taliban militant was shot dead by Canadian troops. Three suspected insurgents were detained. The clashes came after earlier battles and a friendly-fire incident left five Canadians dead and dozens...
