Clinton ally gave $500K to Wife of FBI Agent on Email Probe

From NYPOST by Daniel Halper --  

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a longtime Clinton confidant, helped steer $675,000 to the election campaign of the wife of an FBI official who went on to lead the probe into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email system, according to a report.

The political action committee of McAuliffe, the Clinton loyalist, gave $467,500 to the state Senate campaign of the wife of Andrew McCabe, who is now deputy director of the FBI, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Jill McCabe received an additional $207,788 from the Virginia Democratic Party, the report states, which is heavily influenced by McAuliffe.

Watergate's Bob Woodward: "Clinton Foundation Is Corrupt, It's A Scandal"

At ZeroHedge by Tyler Durden  --

It's one thing for the right-wing press to accuse the Clinton foundation of cronyism, corruption, and scandal (especially if the facts, and internal admissions by affiliated employees, confirm as much) - it tends to be generally ignored by the broader, if left-leaning, media. But when the Watergate scandal's Bob Woodward, associate editor at the liberal Washington Post, says very much the same, Hillary Clinton's campaign has no choice but to notice. This is precisely what happened today when journalist Bob Woodward told a Fox News Sunday panel that the Clinton Foundation is "corrupt" and that Hillary Clinton has not answered for it.

Here, courtesy of RealClearPolitics, is the transcript of today's exchange:

CHRIS WALLACE, FOX NEWS SUNDAY: Then there are the allegations about the Clinton Foundation and pay to play, which I asked Secretary Clinton about in the debate, and she turned into an attack on the Trump Foundation.

But, Bob, I want to go back to the conversation I was having with Robby Mook before. When -- when you see what seems to be clear evidence that Clinton Foundation donors were being treated differently than non-donors in terms of access, when you see this new -- new revelations about the $12 million deal between Hillary Clinton, the foundation, and the king of Morocco, are voters right to be troubled by this?


Team Trump ready to point finger at Paul Ryan if Donald loses


From NYPOST  Editorial Board --

Team Trump has begun to hint that, if The Donald loses, a big reason will be the “betrayal” by House Speaker Paul Ryan. That gets things exactly backward.

The Trumpers’ venom could have widespread repercussions — further dividing the party, hurting down-ballot candidates and even threatening Ryan’s reelection as speaker if the GOP holds the House.

Which would be a disaster for both Republicans and the entire country.

Trump has long accused Ryan of disloyalty, especially after the speaker said he’d no longer defend the nominee once the “locker room” tape leaked. That’s been echoed by such high-profile allies as Fox News’ Sean Hannity.

Here’s the thing: It was Trump’s job to unite the party behind him — by being a nominee all Republicans could support. He was pulling it off in the weeks before the first debate, but he’s wasted much of his fire since then on irrelevant digressions.

Unalienable rights for a sovereign 21st century America

Da Tech Guy  

As an originalist at heart, I’m always skeptical of any form of “modernization” that anyone attempts to institute on government functions, ideas, or philosophies. That’s not to say that I want the world to work strictly from rules made in the 18th century, but human nature in general and progressive nature in particular tend to corrupt through modernization rather than improve.

One exception that should be discussed would be the modernization of the unalienable rights set forth in the Declaration of Independence. Unlike the Constitution or the Amendments that should only be tampered with through the prescribed amendment powers given to the federal government as well as the states, the Declaration of Independence should be examined for the sake of its 21st century validity. We are no longer under the rule of England. We have a nation that is sovereign, a government system that is tested, and a people that are empowered. By examining the unalienable rights as they apply today, it’s possible to bring them back into a focus in a way that is more applicable today.


WikiLeaks: Hillary Ally Spoke with Campaign About Intimidating Justice Roberts on Obamacare


At Daily Wire by Frank Camp --

The ongoing release of hacked emails allegedly from the account of John Podesta, Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman, has led to a number of high-profile stories about the former Secretary of State. These stories are incredibly important. However, a recently released email chain in which a Clinton ally voices her desire to intimidate SCOTUS Chief Justice John Roberts should set off alarm bells.

In June of 2015, Neera Tanden, president and CEO of the liberal Center for American Progress, sent an email to Clinton aide Jake Sullivan, Director of Communications Jennifer Palmieri, and John Podesta, about the possibility of pressuring Justice Roberts on the court's second major Obamacare decision:

THE REAL QUESTION: Will Hillary (and the Democrats) Accept the Results When She Loses?


At Doug Ross@Journal By Daniel Greenfield

The headlines are in. Trump is the “anti-Democratic” candidate because he refuses to rule out challenging the results of an election that has yet to take place. Such a course of action is “beyond the pale”. It’s a threat to democracy. And it is utterly and thoroughly unacceptable.

Except when Democrats do it.

It was the day after the election. While the Democratic Party faithful waited in the rain in Nashville, William Daley strode out and announced, “Our campaign continues”. Al Gore had called George W. Bush to withdraw his concession. “Are you saying what I think you’re saying?" a baffled Bush asked. “You don’t have to be snippy about it," Gore retorted snippily.

Gore did eventually concede. Though years later he would attempt to retract his concession a second time. But his political movement never did concede. It remained a widespread belief in left-wing circles that President Bush was illegitimately elected and that President Gore was the real winner.

Effort to Defeat Hillary Clinton in Florida ‘Don’t Vote for the Lying Witch’

At Conservative Read by Chris  -- 

Jen Lawrence & Dustin Stockton,

Republican presidential nominee Donald J. Trump’s unorthodox campaign in Florida is still neck-and-neck with Democratic rival Hillary Clinton in the latest polls, despite being outmatched in spending in this critical battleground state. The race remains close in large part thanks to the “movement” he often references from the stage at his rallies nationwide.

Over the past several weeks, Breitbart News has spent time with a variety of Trump backers in Florida—ranging from his campaign’s state co-chairman and Florida GOP vice chairman Joe Gruters to grassroots activists and die hard supporters—to figure out what exactly is driving Trump’s appeal in a state with 29 electoral votes critical to either candidate’s White House chances.

Trump Up 2 Points Nationwide, While Clinton Campaigns As If The Race Is Already Won — IBD/TIPP Poll

 IBD by John Merline --

With 16 days to go until November 8, Donald Trump leads Hillary Clinton by 2 percentage points — 43% to 41% — in a four-way race, according to the latest IBD/TIPP presidential tracking poll.
Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson saw his support held steady at 7%, while the Green Party's Jill Stein dipped to 3%.

Unrounded, Trump leads 42.6% to 40.8% — a 1.8-point edge — with Johnson at 7.2% and Stein at 3.3%.

Trump also holds a nearly one-point lead in a two-way matchup — 43.2% to 42.3%.

The IBD/TIPP poll results continue to show a much closer race than most other nationwide polls. Only the Rasmussen poll shows Trump ahead in a four-way contest (by two points). The Real Clear Politics average has Clinton up by 5.3 points. And Clinton leads by an average 6.1 points in the latest two-way matchup polls.

Schweizer: WikiLeaks Show How Clinton Campaign Chair John Podesta Became ‘Business Partners with Vladimir Putin’

At Breitbart by Jerome Hudson --

Breitbart News Editor-at-Large, Clinton Cash author, and Government Accountability Institute president Peter Schweizer told Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Matthew Boyle on Saturday, “The Podesta emails show stunning facts that are very troubling and that show that pay-to-play was widespread in the Clinton Foundation.”

Schweizer said one of the most stunning revelations uncovered by the WikiLeaks email dumps was that found in the internal review of the Clinton Foundation, ordered by Chelsea Clinton, in which auditors noted that “some interviewees reported conflicts of those raising funds or donors, some of whom may have an expectation of quid pro quo benefits in return for gifts.”

Meet The Man Who Can Expose "The Real Hillary Clinton Scandal"

At Zero Hedge by Tyler Durden,

We have written frequently about the internal Clinton Foundation power struggle between Chelsea Clinton and Doug Band over the previous couple of weeks (see here, here and here).  It all started back in 2011 when, as Chelsea started to take a more senior role at the Clinton Foundation, she became increasingly concerned about an internal audit that exposed glaring conflicts of interest throughout the Foundation with an emphasis on Doug Band and his company, Teneo, who she thought had inappropriately sought favors from the State Department during Hillary's tenure as Secretary of State.  A Politico article from March 2015, summarized Chelsea's rise at the Foundation and how it threatened some long-time Clinton allies who had grown quite accustomed to the status quo. 
But Chelsea Clinton’s rise at times has seemed to threaten some veteran Clinton aides who had carved out influential—and lucrative—positions after long service with her parents. She is blamed in some quarters for marginalizing both Lindsey and Doug Band, who rose from the president’s body man to build and help run the foundation’s Clinton Global Initiative. A third Clinton veteran, Ira Magaziner, saw his portfolio at the foundation diminished during Braverman’s tenure, and sources say Magaziner’s role remains under scrutiny.

Trump Leading in Poll that has Best Track Record over last 3 elections

At NYPOST by Mary Kay Linge:

The poll with the best track record over the last three presidential elections gave Donald Trump a 2-percentage-point edge over Hillary Clinton on Saturday.

The Investor’s Business Daily/TIPP tracking poll has Trump with 42.1 percent and Clinton at 39.7 percent.

The IBD/TIPP survey, which includes 791 likely voters and carries a margin of error of 3.6 percentage points, was the most accurate predictor of the final results in the last three presidential elections — calling the outcomes within 0.9 percent of the actual tally in 2004, 2008, and 2012.

Trump pounced on the poll results. “Great new poll this morning, thank you. Lets #DrainTheSwamp and #MakeAmer­icaGreatAgain!” he tweeted.

Clinton has a 95 percent chance of winning, according to a Reuters/Ipsos electoral-vote analysis from last week.

The New York Times abandoned its integrity just to bash Donald Trump

At NYPOST by Micheal Goodwin:

There is apparently nothing wrong with America that can’t be blamed on Donald Trump. He is single-handedly destroying the Republican Party, trashing presidential debates and spoiling the reputation of locker-room talk.

And — breaking news alert! — Trump is even changing journalism. His habit of saying things that nobody ever said before is forcing reporters to unleash their partisan views instead of just giving the facts.

Some of these charges may be true, but the one about Trump changing journalism is demonstrably false. All the more so because it comes from the editor of the New York Times, who happens to be the actual guilty party.

Dean Baquet, the Gray Lady’s boss for two years, recently claimed that Trump’s campaign had forced the paper into a new way of covering politics.

Wow! Voting machine in Chicago switches Republican votes into Democratic votes


From FoxNews: 

Early voting in Illinois got off to a rocky start Monday, as votes being cast for Republican candidates were transformed into votes for Democrats.

Republican state representative candidate Jim Moynihan went to vote Monday at the Schaumburg Public Library.

 “I tried to cast a vote for myself and instead it cast the vote for my opponent,” Moynihan said. “You could imagine my surprise as the same thing happened with a number of races when I tried to vote for a Republican and the machine registered a vote for a Democrat.”

Truthbomb from Rasmussen: More Americans Want Hillary Indicted Than Elected

At DCClothesline by Dean Garrison  --

Aren’t you a little sick of the fake polling numbers, internet censorship of anti-Hillary stories and media collusion in the attempt to force this vile woman down our throats?
You don’t have to answer that question.

I am sick of it and I know those of you with more than a few functioning brain cells are as well.

According to WikiPedia, Rasmussen Reports is an American polling company, founded in 2003.[2] The company engages in the collection, publication, and distribution of public opinion polling information. Rasmussen Reports conducts nightly tracking, at national and state levels, of elections, politics, current events, consumer confidence, business topics, and the president’s job approval ratings.

It may also be one of the few remaining semi-honest polling companies in America.
