  • Hillary’s Acceptance Speech Was True To Her—And That’s the Bad News

    Politico ^ | July 29, 2016 | Jeff Greenfield
    As Donald Rumsfeld might have put it, “You go with the nominee you have, not with the nominee you might want.” Based on the speech she delivered Thursday night—the biggest of her life—Hillary Clinton and her campaign have decided that she will win or lose based on the strengths and weaknesses that have characterized her for decades. In the end, Clinton failed to transcend that issue. You, the voters, she seemed to say, simply have to accept me as I am in all my pedestrian earnestness—especially if the choice is between me and Donald Trump. The question leading up to...

    (Washington Examiner) – In the strongest criticism yet of Hillary Clinton’s open-border and amnesty plan, the National Border Patrol CouncilThursday warned that the Democrat’s plan endangers Americans and that drug cartels and Islamic extremists are eager for her to win so they can invade the U.S. “Clinton’s call for amnesty in her first 100 days and expanding these dangerous policies demonstrates her deeply alarming willingness to sell out the security of American families to advance her political or financial interests. Her immigration plan is not only dangerous for all American families, but previews an administration that will once again defy...

    Hillary Clinton devoted part of her speech Thursday night to guns, telling the Democrat National Convention, “If we’re serious about keeping our country safe, we…can’t afford to have a president who's in the pocket of the gun lobby.” “I’m not here to repeal the Second Amendment. I’m not here to take away your guns. I just don’t want you to be shot by someone who shouldn’t have a gun in the first place,” Clinton said. She once again called for “common-sense reforms” to “keep guns out of the hands of criminals, terrorists and all other who would do us harm,”...

Her pearls sparkled. She seemed happy. She sounded excited. She appeared hopeful. And that was all reflected in her clothes. And most importantly, Hillary Rodham Clinton, the first woman nominated to vie for the position of America's commander in chief by a major political party, looked presidential.

The Oregon State graduate supports Bernie Sanders, not the party's presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton. So do many of Oregon's delegates. McKelvey said tension over that difference of opinion hit new heights Wednesday when the arena cut the lights over the Oregon delegation as they chanted, "No More War," during former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta's speech.

But the Democratic presidential nominee's campaign hasn't been quite so blunt about it. Until now. "We'll have a press conference when we want to have a press conference," Clinton pollster Joel Benenson said on ABC News on Thursday evening.

    In 2007, India began an official tender process for 126 multi-role, medium-range combat aircraft (MMRCA) with Paris-based Dassault at a cost of about $11 billion. It was the world’s largest fighter jet deal at the time. Since then the deal has unraveled. Negotiations stalled over price and quality and, ultimately, Prime Minister Narendra Modi opted to purchase only 36 “ready to fly” aircraft from Dassault. Even this more modest version of deal has yet to fully fructify. Since the original bid, the Modi government has added a “made in India” component as part of all future acquisitions. Amidst the French...

The aircraft took off from Ulan-Ude, a city to the east of Lake Baikal, and was heading to the Russian city of Yakutsk. However, one of the plane’s landing gears had apparently malfunctioned and failed to retract after takeoff, so the crew decided to make a forced landing in Khabarovsk, RIA Novosti reports. The Khabarovsk airport administration also confirmed that an aircraft with a stuck landing gear made an unscheduled landing there. "A...

Hillary Clinton talks about unity, about E Pluribus Unum, but her globalist agenda denies American citizens the protections to which they are all entitled – tearing us apart. Her radical amnesty plan will take jobs, resources and benefits from the most vulnerable citizens of the United States and give them to the citizens of other countries.

Even when he was corrected by a reporter, Earnest insisted Reagan did not get at least 50 percent of the vote twice. "I don’t think it's a coincidence that President Obama is actually the first president since President Eisenhower to win two national elections back-to-back, earning a majority vote from the American people," Earnest said.

Nancy Kissel earned her nickname in 2003, when she killed hubby Robert Kissel, a senior executive for Merrill Lynch, in their Hong Kong apartment — bludgeoning him to death after serving him a strawberry milkshake spiked with sedatives. After a dramatic, well-publicized trial, Kissel, now 51, was convicted of murder in 2005 and sentenced to life in prison at Hong Kong’s maximum security Tai Lam Centre for Women.
