    One of the emails contained in the Wikileaks’ Podesta email release shows that Hillary Clinton had gun control supporters planted in a town hall audience in Manchester, New Hampshire. The town hall occurred on October 5, 2015; just four days after a man opened fire on Umpqua Community College campus in Oregon.
  • VIDEO "Bill Clinton is a Rapist" Shouted during Clinton's speech in Keene (N.H.)

    10/18/2016 3:34:58 PM PDT · by Beautiful_Gracious_Skies · 14 replies ^ | October 18, 2016
    Apparently conspiracy talk show host Alex Jones has offered $5,000 to people who can get on television for shouting “Bill Clinton is a Rapist”. Yesterday, it happened in Keene during the Bill Clinton speech: Jones’ challenge appears to be working, as the Keene Sentinel,... The two men who interrupted Clinton’s speech by repeatedly shouting the phrase, went on to discuss some of the sexual assault allegations against him. Kudos to the brave, unknown activists who smartly shouted out near the media riser, so it was easy for the cameramen covering the speech to focus on their interruption.

    Donald Trump’s presidential campaign is finally spending more money than Hillary Clinton’s. Trump’s campaign will spend almost $11.7 million on television ads set to run in eleven states this week, topping Clinton’s spending on ads for the first time. The Clinton campaign is spending $10.5 million on advertising in seven states.

    Crain's Chicago Business ^ | July 28, 2016 | Dennis Rodkin
    The property tax bill on Jeff and Roberta Price's Lincoln Park home was about $400 in 1977, the first year they lived there. It's been going up ever since but rarely with the jolt of this year's 63 percent increase. The increase, from $8,652 to $14,104, has the couple re-considering their plan to retire in the Kenmore Avenue home, where they raised their kids. They're looking at homes in Indiana "as a backup plan" for the time when Roberta retires in a few years, said Jeff, who is already retired. "We have lived in our home for almost 39 years...

    Pardess Mitchell is watching her community crumble. She and her husband have lived in Lake County for 16 years. They pay more in property taxes than they do on their mortgage. The tax bill is $15,000 a year on a house they bought for $227,000 in 2013. “They’re taxing us out of the neighborhood. They’re pushing us out. They’re pushing us out of our homes and communities,” she said. “If it continues this way we’ll have to leave.” A Paul Simon Public Policy Institute poll released Oct. 10 revealed nearly half of registered Illinois voters said they would leave the...

    a new WBUR poll (topline, crosstabs) finds the race in New Hampshire is very close. Democrat Hillary Clinton leads Republican Donald Trump by just 3 points — 41 to 38 percent. That's within the poll's 4.4 percentage point margin of error. New Hampshire is bucking a national trend. The race there is getting tighter, whereas nationally, Clinton has in recent weeks been widening her lead over Trump. The results are surprising to Steve Koczela, the president of MassINC Polling Group, which conducted the survey for WBUR."In the last couple [of election] cycles, the margin in New Hampshire has been about the same as...

Morning Joe began the canonization process today, beatifying the First Lady for her speech trashing Donald Trump over the stories about his personal behavior that have recently emerged. All the ongoing glorification of Mrs. Obama on the Morning Joe set was leavened with some unintentional humor from Joe Scarborough, who said of the First Lady’s speech that “there was nothing calculated about it.

    Endorsements may not move the needle with most voters, even when A-listers like Ted Cruz make them. When it comes to John H. Sununu, former governor of New Hampshire and one-time RNC chair, it would normally matter less, except for his ties to the Bush family, who haven’t exactly tripped over themselves to support Donald Trump. Like Cruz, Sununu didn’t hold back his criticism of the Republican nominee, at least until today. The morning after the debate, the Trump campaign released this statement from George H. W. Bush’s former chief of staff: “Donald Trump is the only candidate in this...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders plans to join Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton this week at an event in New Hampshire where they will pitch a joint plan to make college more affordable -- part of a continuing effort to sell the party’s ticket to wary millennials. Sanders, the runner-up in the Democratic primaries, consistently outperformed Clinton among young voters. As he prepared to exit the race in July, he worked with Clinton to incorporate parts of his college plan into hers. The result is a proposal to make public colleges and universities tuition-free for families with income up to $125,000 a...

Trump publicly mocked his own traveling press corps for showing up late, a turn of events that his own campaign staff caused.

    Election 2014 displayed one of the most incredible switches of U.S. Senate control in recent memory. The Republicans did not just take back the upper chamber—they wiped the floor with the Democrats. They bested some of their pettiest political tricks, including three different Democratic candidates in Montana, plus three-way races in other states. Nothing can top Election Day 1980, which produced a Republican majority with 12 Senate wins. Election Day 2014 produced nine seats, but could have been 11 if not for the intense infighting in Republican primaries. So, will 2016 turn into an epic landslide of the Democrats and...
