    Typical network news report on the election I'm listening to the radio top of the hour news. ABC news. First story is about Trump. Frank Lutz says Trump should be polling better at this time and would be if he'd appealed to disaffected independents. That was the Trump report. Next up was the Hillary report. A new batch of Wikileaks is out about how in 2015 her campaign was discussing how to address the e-mail scandal. The main anchor says, "more from our reporter". They cut to her and I am thinking that the more detailed follow-up by the reporter...

    Police officers shot at a drone operated by activists during Sunday’s North Dakota pipeline protest after the aircraft flew near a police helicopter, leaving passengers “in fear of their lives.” The drone “flew at a helicopter in a threatening manner” above a protest at a Dakota Access pipeline construction site, prompting officers to fire “less-than-lethal” ammunition at the drone, which then was landed by its operator, according to the Morton County Sheriff’s Department. “A sheriff on board the helicopter reported to law enforcement on the ground that the helicopter pilot and passengers were ‘in fear of their lives,’ and that...

    In the final sprint of the general election season, Donald Trump’s presidential campaign is acknowledging that it’s playing catch-up to Hillary Clinton, just as a new national poll shows the Republican nominee trailing his opponent by double digits. When asked on NBC News how she saw the state of the race, Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s campaign manager, replied that “We are behind.” “She has some advantages, like $66 million in ad buys just in the month of September, thereby doubling her ad buys from August,” Conway pointed out. “Now, most of those ads are negative against Donald Trump, classic politics, personal...

    After we have been insulted by another faked poll we have to keep in mind that Wikileaks just released an email from the Clinton camp discussing ways to use over sampling to build a fake narrative that Hillary Clinton is pulling away. Donald Trump’s support among Catholics is at a record high level; and Hillary Clinton’s support among Catholics is at a record low. We know this because of a survey done by the Washington Post. The latest Washington Post ABC News poll of Catholic likely voters said Trump is leading 50/34. So where is the lie? On October...

So charge investigators who have been delving into the murky — and very alarming — dealings of Secretary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation with a company known as Uranium One, and various “private” Russian companies and official Russian agencies. Moreover, her critics accuse Hillary and Bill Clinton of raking in a huge fortune (over $130 million) from the American, Canadian, and Russian investors who helped arrange for these Russian companies — under the control, ultimately, of Vladimir Putin — to...

This week a Burnet County jury found the mother guilty, and District Judge Evan Stubbs sentenced Misty Hopkins, 49, to five stacked life sentences. Her husband, who was a pastor of a church in Kingsland that no longer exists, would likely be going to prison, but he died in 2012 before one of their children decided to break their silence and tell police about the abuse. It was their middle child, Holly Hopkins, who originally...

The videos were largely dismissed as "cooky alt-right conspiracy theories" and didn't get much attention outside of those spheres. But, when similar abnormalities surfaced on Hillary's podium in the third debate, combined with the fact that she spent an awkward amount of time during her answers peering...

Partisan divisions are 36-27-31 percent, Democrats-Republicans-independents.” GOP primary turnout was up 62% this year while Democrat primary turnout was down 21% this year.

    Florida Republican Gov. Rick Scott and the U.S. Justice Department are locked in a heated battle over the state's efforts to remove suspected illegal immigrants from voter rolls. The drive is aimed, the state says, at countering voter fraud. Last month, Florida election officials announced that by cross-referencing voter rolls with driver's licenses and other materials, they believed 2,600 registered voters were in fact not U.S. citizens, and that they were looking into the records of another 180,000 registered voters. Suspected noncitizens were then sent letters requiring them to confirm their citizenship in order to retain their voter rights. Critics...
