VIDEO--Hannity 6/30/16 | Donald Trump Sean Hannity interview on Hillary Clinton, Obama & Media's attack

Donald Trump said he's "flabbergasted" that Attorney General Loretta Lynch met privately with former President Bill Clinton while the Justice Department conducts a criminal investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's emails.

Trump said when he first heard about the meeting, which took place at Phoenix airport Monday aboard Lynch's plane, he thought it was a joke. "I said 'No way, [there's] just no way that’s going to happen. And it happened."

 He continued: "I am just... I’m flabbergasted by it. I think it’s amazing, I’ve never seen anything like that before."

Odd battle: Presumptive GOP nominee Trump vs. Chamber of Commerce


AT USA TODAY by David M Jackson, 

Among the more unusual sights of this unusual campaign: A Republican presidential candidate at odds with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Donald Trump is attacking the chamber for its criticism of his trade policies, saying the pro-GOP group is more interested in job-killing trade deals than helping the middle class.

"For reasons only they can explain, the @USChamber wants to continue our bad trade deals rather than renegotiating and making them better," Trump tweeted.

During a Wednesday appearance in Maine, Trump — rejecting traditional Republican support for free trade policies — accused the chamber of being "totally controlled by the special interest groups" that want to keep free trade deals they support.

Feds ask for 27-month delay in release of Clinton staff emails

At THE HILL by Julian Hattem,

The Obama administration on Thursday asked a federal court to delay until October 2018 the release of 14,000 pages of emails from aides to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

In a court filing on Wednesday, administration lawyers said the State Department miscalculated the amount of material it would need to process the documents as part of a lawsuit with the conservative organization Citizens United.

As a result, the government asked for a 27-month delay to release the emails, which were originally due out on July 21.
“State deeply regrets these errors, and is working diligently to correct them as quickly as possible,” the lawyers said.

Citizens United has sued for emails between a handful of State Department officials and people at the Clinton Foundation and a consulting firm, Teneo Consulting, which has ties to the Clintons.

Among other errors, State officials said than an initial test looking at just 300 emails, which was used to calculate the amount of time necessary to process the emails, neglected to include keyword searches of the messages. Instead, they only searched the “To” and “From” lines of the messages, which failed to catch many emails.

Trump floats idea of using NATO in fight against Islamic State


Republican Donald Trump said on Thursday that if elected president Nov. 8 he would be open to drawing NATO forces into the fight against Islamic State militants in a new mission for an alliance he has called obsolete.

Trump made the comments in an interview with ABC News. The presumptive Republican presidential nominee has for months raised questions about the money the United States pours into NATO, which he says needs to be reconfigured to take account of today’s threats.

“I like the idea of using NATO and also neighbors that aren’t in NATO and take them out. You gotta take them out,” Trump said.

Under President Barack Obama, the United States has relied heavily on U.S. airstrikes to attack Islamic State targets in Syria and Iraq. Republicans have criticized this policy as not enough to stop the militants.

Anti-Trump Neocons Push Outdated Cold War Fears

By Chris 

Wayne Madsen,

Military-industrial complex thinks Putin is USSR.
American propagandists have dusted off their old Cold War training manuals and are engaged in a renewed propaganda war with primarily Russia, but also with other foes of American neo-imperialism, including China and Venezuela.

Unlike the Cold War years, the Obama administration has resorted to childish disinformation tactics against Russia, including one that Russian President Vladimir Putin personally ordered one of his intelligence agents to break into the home of a U.S. diplomat and defecated on his carpet.

Tales of Russian “phantom shitters” and Russian agents shooting the dogs of American diplomats are being spun from whole cloth by “secret” State Department memos being leaked to The Washington Post and “confirmed” by ex-diplomats like former U.S. ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul, a notorious neocon, and former U.S. ambassador to the Czech Republic Norman Eisen, who claims he only heard about the incidents in Russia.

As far as Eisen’s credibility is concerned. he was the Assistant Director of the Los Angeles office of the Anti-Defamation League, a well-known spinner of what was allegedly found on the carpets of U.S. diplomats in Russia.

Why Trump Is Routing the Free Traders


By Patrick J. Buchanan

In Tuesday’s indictment of free trade as virtual economic treason, The Donald has really set the cat down among the pigeons.

For, in denouncing NAFTA, the WTO, MFN for China and the Trans-Pacific Partnership, all backed by Bush I and II, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, Trump is all but calling his own party leaders dunderheads and losers.

And he seems to be winning the argument.

As he calls for the repudiation of “globalism” and a return to “Americanism,” a Republican Congress renders itself mute on whether it will even vote on the TPP this year.

White House Watch: Poll Trump 43%, Clinton 39%

The tables have turned in this week’s White House Watch. After trailing Hillary Clinton by five points for the prior two weeks, Donald Trump has now taken a four-point lead.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey of Likely U.S. Voters finds Trump with 43% of the vote, while Clinton earns 39%. Twelve percent (12%) still like another candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Last week at this time, it was Clinton 44%, Trump 39%. This is Trump’s highest level of support in Rasmussen Reports’ matchups with Clinton since last October. His support has been hovering around the 40% mark since April, but it remains to be seen whether he’s just having a good week or this actually represents a real move forward among voters.

Trump now earns 75% support among his fellow Republicans and picks up 14% of the Democratic vote. Seventy-six percent (76%) of Democrats like Clinton, as do 10% of GOP voters. Both candidates face a sizable number of potential defections because of unhappiness with them in their own parties.

Trump's trade plans attacked by business, labor and GOP


At USA TODAY by David m Jackson,

Donald Trump's high-profile trade speech Tuesday drew criticism from an unusual pair of opponents: the AFL-CIO and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Other conservative Republicans are also questioning Trump's proposal to re-negotiate or even rip up multilateral trade deals long supported by GOP leaders and allied business interests.
"Good-paying jobs and sustained economic growth relies on an outward-facing U.S. economy, not inward isolation," tweeted the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in responding to Trump.

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, meanwhile, cited a Trump business history that includes past support for free trade. The labor leader tweeted at one point, "if @realDonaldTrump trade policies look anything like his business policies, working ppl will be collecting pink slips instead of pay checks."


SHAW  CIO s Trumpka may have a poor view of Donald Trump's business practices but the rank and file unionists know how big trade deals have taken their jobs and will vote Trump.

Obama goes on "RANT" about Donald Trump's populism

At CBSNEWS by Rebecca Shabad

President Obama went off on his own rant Wednesday at a trilateral press conference in which he disputed the idea that Donald Trump is a populist and that the presumptive GOP nominee instead promotes "nativism" or "xenophobia."

After reporters asked a series of questions of Mr. Obama, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Mr. Obama decided he had something else to say in Ottawa -- he addressed the common theme of populism raised during the event.

"I'm not prepared to concede the notion that some of the rhetoric that's been popping up is populist," Mr. Obama said, referring to Trump.


SHAW: No one expects Obama to concede he is completely wrong about the voters desire for Populism, American first. Obama has put Americans last for eight years.

Who Speaks for the Party?


From Weekly Standard: by Jay Cost,

Our Constitution distributes power broadly across three branches of government, and the federal, state, and local levels. Yet during presidential campaigns, candidates for offices across the country unite behind their party’s presidential nominee.

This person becomes the representative of the entire coalition, and it is his or her responsibility to explain to voters what the party stands for.

Hillary Clinton may have many limitations as a candidate, but there's no doubt she's an able messenger for the Democrats.

The GOP, by contrast, has selected Donald Trump, who lacks the capacity to make an argument on behalf of the conservative movement. Trump has effectively shifted this rhetorical burden to Republican officeholders, who lack the prominence to make a forceful, unified case for the party. As such, the two sides are grossly mismatched, with the Democrats holding a substantial advantage.

SHAW: The reason Trump doesn't make strong arguments for the Conservatives is because most GOP voters are more interested in Nationalism not the GOPs' brand of globalist Conservatism.
The masses want An America First candidate. The GOPe wanted a globalist, change America

But Trump beat those candidates in the primaries.

Wisconsin: Paul Ryan’s Challenger Unveils Anti-Jihad Immigration Billboard

AT CREEPING SHARIA: House Speaker Paul Ryan’s primary challenger, Wisconsin businessman Paul Nehlen, seems to have taken a page from the playbook of the U.K. Independence Party (UKIP) with the launch of a new billboard campaign.

On Friday morning, Nehlen’s campaign went live with a new billboard in Ryan’s hometown of Janesville, Wisconsin that is reminiscent of the distinctive UKIP-style campaign.

The ad reads: “Radical Islam Kills Americans. Vote YES for Immigration Control. Vote NO for Paul Ryan.”

The billboard then directs viewers to Nehlen’s campaign website,

“This is the first of many billboards our campaign will be launching to inform the voters about what’s at stake on August 9th,” Nehlen told Breitbart.

As Nehlen’s billboard suggests, Paul Ryan has a two-decade long history of pushing for open border immigration policies – including his 2015 effort to fund President Obama’s expansion to the U.S. refugee resettlement operation.

CIA boss ‘worried’ ISIS is planning a major attack in US

AT NYPOST by Jamie Schram,

CIA Director John Brennan warned Americans hours after Tuesday’s deadly Istanbul terror attack that he fears ISIS is planning similar large-scale offensives inside the United States.

In an interview with Yahoo News, the nation’s top spy said he’s “worried” that a copycat attack will be carried out within our borders by the radical jihadist network, which is believed to be behind the suicide bombings at Ataturk Airport that claimed 41 lives and injured scores more.
“I am worried from the standpoint of an intelligence professional who looks at the capabilities of (ISIS) … and their determination to kill as many as people as possible and to carry out attacks abroad,” Brennan told Yahoo News, adding, “I’d be surprised if (ISIS) is not trying to carry out that kind of attack in the United States.”

Brennan then turned up the scare factor by talking about how easy it would be to “construct” a suicide vest.

The Federal Election Commission voted in secret to punish Fox News'

Fox targeted by FEC Dems in first-ever vote to punish debate sponsorship

This is almost funny as Fox in the pres debates was nastier than the other networks to Donlad Trump. It Cost Fox many viewers.

If Benghazi was your 'worst mistake,' Mr. President, take it seriously



The House Select Committee on Benghazi has published its final report on the terrorist attack there in September 2012, and the news media are determined to minimize its importance.
True, it contains no shocking new revelation beyond all the shocking things that had been revealed already.

The public already had an inkling of the clumsy, election-related White House and State Department coverup after the attack. They knew, if they kept up on the issue, about the casual neglect of adequate security measures by the State Department. They suspected a failure by the military to do all it could; no personnel or equipment was deployed in that direction.

(It might not have saved lives, but that's something that could not have been known in advance, so failure to lift a finger was a terrible failure indeed).
