The NYT exhibits a serious lack of knowledge in a piece that is supposed to ridicule a politician for his lack of knowledge.Read more
It’s very common for political factions to believe that they’re persecuted and victimized. Even with the overwhelming bulk of the national media so openly aligned against Trump – with an endless array of investigative stories showing Trump to be an unscrupulous con artist and pathological liar – Clinton supporters seem to genuinely believe that the media is actually biased against their candidate.
The reality is that large, pro-Clinton liberal media platforms – such as Vox, and the Huffington Post, and prime-time MSNBC programs, and the columnists and editorialists of the New York Times and the Washington Post, and most major New York-based weekly magazines – have been openly campaigning for Hillary Clinton.Read more
“The past eight years have been very lonely. There has not been much activism against the wars at all,” Cindy Sheehan lamented.
“Obama has continued to expand George Bush’s war of terror against the world, and there has been very little opposition to it,” she added.
More than 12 years ago, Sheehan’s son, a soldier in the U.S. Army, was killed in Iraq. The tragic loss transformed her. She was politicized, and plunged into anti-war activism. Sheehan soon became one of the most vociferous critics of then-President George W. Bush….
Salon spoke with Sheehan to discuss the recent controversy with Donald Trump and Khizr Khan, the 2016 presidential election and the ongoing wars waged by the U.S.
In the interview, Sheehan condemned Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, the two-party system and the corporate media.Read more
Overall, Clinton’s speech could have been given by a conventional Republican hawk, and some of the lines could have been lifted from the speeches of some of this year’s Republican presidential contenders… Clinton insisted that “America must lead” and conjured up a vision of the vacuums that would be created if the U.S. did not do this. This is a standard hawkish line that implies that the U.S. always has to be involved in conflict and crises no matter how little the U.S. has at stake in them.Read more
Hillary Clinton’s unpopularity reached a new high in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll, putting her on par with Donald Trump among registered voters.
The latest findings solidify their positions as the two most unpopular presidential candidates in polling dating back more than 30 years….
Clinton’s and Trump’s historic low scores raise uncertainties about voter turnout in the November election. The open question is whether they can motivate their supporters to show up at the polls on Election Day. The high unfavorable ratings may mean that voters will be more motivated by their opposition to the candidate they dislike the most rather than their support of any candidate.Read more
This week Bernie Sanders started moonlighting as a traveling used car salesman. A month ago, the neophyte salesman volunteered to handle the problematic Clinton account, featuring the Hillary model, which, like the Edsel of old, had previously gone unsold during its initial rollout in 2008.Read more
Hillary Clinton will speak about – as her press office put it – “Donald Trump and his advisors’ embrace of the disturbing ‘alt-right’ political philosophy.” Whether or not that speech helps Clinton’s presidential bid, it will almost certainly help the alt-right.Read more
FBI agents’ reports of interviews documenting that Hillary Clinton’s stinging humiliation of her friend and mentor Vince Foster in front of White House aides triggered his suicide a week later are missing from where they should be filed at the National Archives, Daily Mail Online has learned exclusively.

…Monday night, Trump appeared on Fox News’ O’Reilly Factor to cite President Obama – who Trump has previously accused of ruining the United States with an “open borders” immigration policy – as an example of someone who takes the right approach to deportations. The transcript:
“…What people don’t know is that Obama got tremendous numbers of people out of the country. Bush the same thing. Lots of people were brought out of the country with the existing laws. I’m going to to do the same thing and I said that.”Read more
