    The Hill ^ | May 26, 2016, 09:49 am | Mark Hensch
    MSNBC host Joe Scarborough on Thursday slammed Hillary Clinton, calling on the Democratic presidential front-runner to "stop lying" about her personal email account. “It’s pretty remarkable,” he said on "Morning Joe" of Clinton’s response to a watchdog report that found Clinton and her top aides did not comply with policy while she served as secretary of State. “I don’t understand why you put out a statement like that,” Scarborough added. "Stop lying, stop digging. “'I screwed up. I’m terribly sorry,'" he offered as alternate responses. "'I hope the American people will forgive me and I hope they will let us...

    About 6,000 delegates and alternates are coming to Philadelphia for the 2016 Democratic National Convention from July 25 to 28, 2016. Fifty-seven state delegations were assigned to 26 hotels in Philadelphia and Valley Forge. State delegations use their hotels as a base of operations during the convention week. Each delegation begins its day by hosting breakfast at their respective hotels to preview the day’s convention activities. In addition, delegates use their hotels to host receptions and conduct official business, including meetings and press conferences. The delegations will be bused to the Wells Fargo Center during the convention hours. After a...

    The news on Donald Trump and veterans hasn’t been very flattering this week, but recent Morning Consult surveys show that members of the military and their families largely back the presumptive GOP nominee in the race for the White House. Almost half of veterans and voters who belong to veteran households (47 percent) picked Donald Trump as their presidential nominee in surveys taken from May 13 through May 24. Of the 1,668 military voters polled, only 38 percent support former Secretary of State and first lady Hillary Clinton, the likely Democratic nominee. Fourteen percent of military voters remain undecided....

    After the latest State Department announcement that Hillary Clinton violated government rules, Judge Andrew Napolitano definitively says there is now ample evidence to indict. Sadly, he is much less certain on whether or not the indictment will actually come. Here is Napolitano's case as he laid it out to Bill O'reilly: "Today is a big deal for a couple of reasons. First, it directly refutes a statement she has made dozens of times, 'it was allowed', we now know that it was not allowed. She never even asked." "She signed a two page statement under oath on her first day...

    A personal aide to former President Bill Clinton with no security clearance maintained Hillary Clinton's private email account and server — greatly jeopardizing national security, political strategist Dick Morris told Newsmax TV on Thursday. The aide, Justin Cooper, served the Clinton Foundation while working for a private consulting firm, Teneo Holdings and Decision Sciences Corp., that served foreign dictators, Morris told "The Steve Malzberg Show" in an interview. "He has no security clearance — and he had access to every single email either sent by or received by the secretary of state of the United States for four years," Morris...

    A substantial number of voters think they’ve been cut out of America’s implicit economic deal. The “anger” hypothesis for explaining the rise of Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders has become the conventional one, and this is a rare occasion when I believe the conventional view is right. Recent news stories show why the Trump-Sanders phenomenon will not be fleeting. The Fed reported on Wednesday that nearly half of Americans would have trouble meeting an unexpected $400 expense. In addition, about one-fifth of Americans were working two or more jobs simultaneously last year, and about one-third have no retirement savings or...

    President Obama brusquely cut off a reporter’s question Thursday about Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email system at the State Department. At a press conference in Japan, the president said he would take one more question from reporters. But when the question turned out to be about Mrs. Clinton’s emails that violated State Department rules, he quickly changed his mind. “You know I take it back — I’m not taking another question,” Mr. Obama said. “We’re in Japan, don’t you have something to do with Asia that we want to talk about?

The report "seemed to contradict many of the things you've said about the emails," Todd said, before asking Clinton if she accepts everything the report said as fact. Clinton argued that the report made clear that personal email use was allowed under State Department rules, though she acknowledged she realized people have "concerns." Snip...

Trump obtained delegate No. 1,237 in the Midwest state, meaning he will be the GOP's definitive candidate in the November general election to run against whomever the Democratic Party nominates -- almost certainly Hillary Clinton.

    Donald Trump returned to the campaign trail with a force Tuesday, veering away from his recent calls for party unity to attack New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez, a rising star Republican and frequent critic of his campaign, as a poor leader who hasn’t done enough to stem economic problems in her state. “You’ve got to get your governor to do a better job. She’s not doing her job,” Trump said at a convention center here, at one point joking that “maybe” he should run for New Mexico governor. The presumptive Republican presidential nominee also argued Martinez has put her state...

    Elizabeth Warren, who has railed against predatory banks and heartless foreclosures, took part in about a dozen Oklahoma real estate deals that netted her and her family hefty profits through maneuvers such as “flipping” properties, records show. A Herald review has found that the Democratic U.S. Senate candidate rapidly bought and sold homes herself, loaned money at high interest rates to relatives and purchased foreclosed properties at bargain prices. Land records from Warren’s native Oklahoma City show the Harvard professor was active in the often topsy-turvy real estate market in the 1990s, including: • Purchasing a foreclosed home at 2725...

    Previously there were possible real-world scenarios which justified the continuing anti-Trump position: 1. A dark horse white knight makes an 11th hour entry and runs third party. This is now virtually impossible, and soon will be entirely impossible. By the way, the application to get on the ballot in Texas has already passed -- so, um, good luck with this one. 2. Trump would prove so toxic in the polls that it would cause the party to do whatever was necessary to install a new candidate, even at the expense of blowing up the party to do it. I thought...

    So I just saw little article about leftist 60s guy Neil Young who said Donald Trump couldn't use one of his songs...same thing with Aerosmith.... So, it just kind of struck me: Artist "Y" created something and THEN Trump purchases the CD/Music File/Record, whatever the material is upon which the recording is made...and then uses it for his OWN pleasure. Artist Y hates Trump and says that even though the record can be bought and purchased, Trump cannot play it publicly. And that wish is respected. Baker "J" creates cakes. Or photographer "G" creates stunning pictures. Can THEY not restrict...

    Update: Joan Walsh response to this blog post is featured below. Outside of a Trump rally Tuesday night in Albuquerque New Mexico, anti-Trump protesters showed up and became violent, throwing rocks, smashing doors, jumping on cop cars and setting Trump flags on fire. For a couple of hours, police tried to control the protesters and find a way to let the hundreds of people who attended the rally, trapped inside, out safely. An NBC reporter was even knocked down off camera as he reported on the scene. Yet his colleagues at sister network MSNBC were less than shocked by the...
