"Thanks, Dennis. Can you talk this morning?" that's all Clinton wrote in one of the classified-as-Secret emails she sent from her server. Don't believe me? See for yourself here on Wikileaks. OK, here's how that works, and how pretty much all 81 classified email chains went down:
In short, the CIA, NSA, FBI sent unmarked classified emails from their unclassified servers to Clinton—to reach her quickly. She used her server properly. It's all in the FBI report. [Read more...]
[Older, longer, more documentation] The Weiner emails are completely irrelevant, and Comey knows it. He explained to the House committee why Clinton did not break the law—she had no criminal intent to damage national security. Not even the worst Republicans claim she did.
Does he think Clinton passed Secrets to Weiner so he'd give them to the Russians?! Find out who else mishandled classified info in this case: the CIA, NSA, ... without criminal intent. [Read more...]
Five million Sanders supporters still say they will vote for Gary Johanson. Probably because he says he is 73% aligned with Sanders. Bernie's a socialist and cares most about inequality. Libertarians care nothing about inequality. Johnson's not quite a pure libertarian, but he still hates every one of Bernie's economic policies.
Hillary Clinton’s pneumonia and her resulting September 11th stumble has the press fretting about her health, her campaign and her reputation for a lack of transparency. Taken together with other steps, however, the Clinton campaign must turn this political and literal misstep into an opportunity.
Here’s why: The Great Debate Expectations Game. Heading [Read more...]
Today Trump refused to tell the Washington Post if he believe Obama was born in the USA. Later Clinton called him out on his five years of insinuations saying, "When will he stop this ugliness, this bigotry?" Shortly thereafter, Trump's campaign issued an admission for him. [Read more...]
Donald Trump directed his foundation to give at least $100,000 to the Clinton Foundation. "No, he was not paying to play," said his campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, "The Clinton Foundation does a lot of good work. [Aug 2016]" Ivanka gave at least $5,000 and her father-in-law, at least a quarter million.
This is not so surprising; the Clinton Foundation scores better than the Red Cross, [Read more...]
Ajuma Baraka, Jill Stein's pick for VP thinks Bernie Sanders has a commitment to "normalized white supremacy" and his supporters form an "ideological prop [for a] capitalist-imperialist settler state." The Russian Green Party considers Jill Stein herself to be Putin's "accomplice" in the repression of domestic human rights. She has celebrated Putin's propaganda network in both Moscow and New York.
Of course, Putin loves Stein because [Read more...]
Should you trust Hillary? A lot of people say they don't. Does this reflect media mythology or reality? Well, this may be the answer: People who know her or investigate her are surprised and agree: she’s honest and caring. In fact, they find the press has perpetuated a false picture, manufactured mostly by the GOP but with a little help from Democrats and independents. These skeptical progressives, Republicans, and a famous investigative reporter now say she's "fundamentally honest." [Read more...]
It was "Bob," the chief of the nearby CIA base who gave the order that Trump & Geist blame on Clinton. The CIA's so-called "Quick Reaction Force" was supposed to protect Amb. Stevens, less than a mile away. But Bob made them wait, and wait some more. Click here to watch Tiegen say this at Trump's convention.
That caused such a delay that the CIA Quick Reaction Force blames CIA Bob for Amb. Stevens' death and three others. [Read more...]
The book, "13 Hours: What Really Happened in Benghazi," now a “major motion picture” and DVD, has gone viral with Trump’s base. Trump hired the two CIA-agent heroes of 13 Hours for his main act on Day-1 of his convention. You might think the book involves Rambo-style heroes fighting off evil attackers despite a spineless government official who tries to hold them back. You’d be right on target.
You might think that spineless official was Hillary Clinton—especially after when CIA agent Geist, standing on Trump’s stage, wraps up their performance with this:
You would be dead wrong. [Read more...]
Why is the "real" Hillary Clinton so hard to know? Is charisma the most important quality for a President? How do we define leadership? Rebecca Traiser answers these questions—and more—in this insightful article.
The idea that, at this point, there is some version of Hillary Clinton that we haven’t seen before feels implausible. Often, it feels like we know too much about her. She has been around for so long — her story, [Read more...]
It's a little confusing. The Bernie-or-Busters (BoBers) have gone bust. Bernie's with Hillary, and they're basically ghosts—no longer part of the real world. But as in Ghostbusters, they can still wreak havoc, and even threaten the world, thanks to their partners in crime flooding out of Trump's "portal" in Cleveland.
Don't get me wrong. Most Bernie supporters are terrific. But the BoBers have gone over to the darkside with Darth Nader. So who ya gonna call?. [Read more...]
This piece by Karoli Kuns, managing editor of Crooks and Liars, is one of the most shared pieces about Hillary on the web.
I have a confession to make: In 2008, I was one of the most ardent Hillary Clinton haters on the planet. I was ferocious about how much I didn’t want her to win the primaries, and I rejoiced the day she gave her concession speech. It was not until President Obama nominated Hillary Clinton as his Secretary of State ... [Read more...]
Prior to June 7, Hillary had won 28% more popular votes than Bernie. On June 7, she won 33% more than Bernie.* She's now ahead of him by more than 3.5 million (and this counts all the popular votes in all the caucus states.)
She has only won 21% more elected delegates than Bernie, because the caucuses are stacked against her. They suppress 75% of the voters than would vote in a primary, and these [Read more...]

June 7, 2016. “In 2008 after Hillary lost North Carolina [back on May 6], she made it clear that our days of attacking Obama were behind us and that we were not to do anything that would make it more difficult for Obama to win a general election.” — Geoff Garin of Clinton’s 2008 campaign team.
Unfortunately, this year’s runner up, has announced he will continue attacking her till the convention, in spite of having no real chance. That’s why Hillary still needs your vote.
Exactly eight years ago, on June 7, 2008, [Read more...]
