The Unrelenting Pundit-Led Effort to Delegitimize All Negative Reporting About Hillary Clinton

The Unrelenting Pundit-Led Effort to Delegitimize All Negative Reporting About Hillary Clinton:

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.

Make America (Realize It’s) Safe Again

Make America (Realize It’s) Safe Again:

Donald Trump keeps insisting we live in dangerous times…. And most Americans agree with him. In June 71% of Americans said they expected further terrorist attacks in the United States over the next several weeks. And 53% recently said they worry a great deal about crime while 70% believe that there is more crime in the United States than there was a year ago.

It may have been smart politics for Trump to use Make America Safe Again as the theme for the opening day of the Republican National Convention. The facts, however, suggest Americans are already quite safe.

Cindy Sheehan on Khizr Khan, Clinton’s Hawkishness, and Why She Votes Third Party

Cindy Sheehan on Khizr Khan, Clinton’s Hawkishness, and Why She Votes Third Party:

“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.

Why are There Not Taco Trucks on Every Corner?

Why are There Not Taco Trucks on Every Corner?:

When Marco Gutierrez, a founder and spokesman for the little-known and sparsely populated advocacy group “Latinos for Trump” recently tried to warn America of the grave dangers of open borders and free migration with the image of “taco trucks on every corner,” most views, Latino and Anglo alike, seem to have experienced a vision of a possible new utopia….

What people do not know is how hard government has worked for years to prevent this from happening. The War on Street Food been going on for more than 100 years.

Trump Still Most Unpopular Candidate Ever But Clinton Closing the Gap

Trump Still Most Unpopular Candidate Ever But Clinton Closing the Gap:

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.

Donald Trump’s History With George Soros

Donald Trump’s History With George Soros:

Over the years, the two billionaires have had tabloid-friendly professional dealings, teaming up to build one of North America’s most recognizable skyscrapers – and shared billing on a lawsuit over the sale of the most expensive building in New York City.

The two billionaires even palled around one Christmas Eve….

The pair’s relationship goes back more than a decade. In 2004, Soros lent Trump a cool $160 million to help with the construction of Trump International Hotel & Tower in Chicago…

A few years later, another skyscraper brought Trump and Soros back together… On Sept. 10, 2008, real estate developer Leslie Dick Worldwide Ltd. named both of them in a lawsuit over the sale of the General Motors Building in Manhattan…

Leslie Dick Worldwide alleged that the defendants engaged in a conspiracy of money laundering, bankruptcy fraud, and bid rigging when Trump and Conseco Finance contracted to sell the building… The developer said Soros masterminded a scheme to keep it from buying the building, even though it outbid the eventual purchaser…

A few months later, the pair were together again. This time, it was at a Christmas Eve party hosted by economist Nouriel Roubini…

And Trump even once encouraged conservatives to lay off the billionaire.

“Oh, forget Soros, leave him alone, he’s got enough problems,” Trump said at a 2011 Tea Party rally…

Trump even nabbed a Team Soros alum for his finance team. His national finance chairman, Steven Mnuchin, has worked for the Soros-backed SFM Capital Management…
