At this point, anybody who can still support Hillary Clinton has the same mental problems as a woman who stays with a wife beater. Hillary and her rapist husband are criminals who should already be in jail!

No wonder Clinton was encouraging people to vote early. She knows there are many more shoes to drop.

The police forces appear to have acted with arrogance, if not professional misconduct, to half mention that some of Clinton’s e-mails are on this guy’s server. I would guess that these e-mails are overlapping and already known, a fact that the FBI director should have mentioned. He seems disgustingly inept. If he wants publicity, I’m sure he’s gonna get it now.
If we are comparing apples to apples here, Trump’s issues vs. Clinton’s, anyone should half expect there to be some fast and loose overlapping interests between Bill’s wallet, Hillary’s Sec. of State position, and the politics of the law. Trump, however, should have been disqualified because of his festering caustic open sore shrewdness that subjected Obama to the Birther issue. We could have all been saved the trouble of hearing is bigoted fear mongering about Mexicans at least. Apples to apples I’ll take Hillary’s ignorance about using a private server and her other issues vs. Trump’s toying with the intelligence of the average American.
…On page 3 of their 11-page report, the agents detail how they showed Abedin a classified paper on Pakistan sent from a State Department source which she, in turn, inexplicably forwarded to her personal Yahoo email account — an obviously unclassified, unencrypted, unsecured and unauthorized system. The breach of security was not an isolated event but a common practice with Abedin.
“She routinely forwarded emails from her state.gov account to either her clintonemail.com or her yahoo.com account,” the agents wrote. Why? “So she could print them” at home and not at her State Department office.
Abedin contended that she “would typically print the documents without reading them” and “was unaware of the classification.” Uh-huh.
The FBI also pointed out that “the only person at DoS (Department of State) to receive an email account on the (clintonemail.com) domain was Abedin.”
“Multiple State employees” told the FBI that they considered emailing Abedin “the equivalent of e-mailing Clinton.” Another close Clinton aide told the FBI that “Abedin may have kept emails that Clinton did not.”
In her April interview with the FBI, Abedin incredulously maintained that she “did not know that Clinton had a private server until about a year and a half ago, when it became public knowledge.” The clintonemail.com server was set up in the basement of the Clinton family residence in Chappaqua.
…By forwarding classified emails to her personal email account and printing them out at home, Abedin appears to have violated a Classified Information NonDisclosure Agreement she signed at the State Department on Jan. 30, 2009, in which she agreed to keep all classified material under the control of the US government.
Let’s see if Comey puts the screws to Abedin and leverages her for information on her boss. If he agrees to cut another immunity deal, we’ll know the fix is still in.
Which brings up two more critical questions: i) when she was questioned by the FBI over the summer, did Huma reveal and admit the existence of these “thousands” of emails located on a personal, home computer, and ii) will the FBI be able to comb through everything in the next 10 days ahead of the election? If the answer to the second question is no, will the US presidential election really take place with one candidate currently under FBI investigation, one which could potentially lead to impeachment proceedings within weeks or days of her being elected president?
Still, the biggest irony in this latest debacle is that it was largely predicted by Donald Trump himself back in August of 2015.
The emails also show a fondness among Clinton’s staff for her strengths and genuine enthusiasm when she did well in interviews or other public appearances. After Clinton appeared on “Face the Nation” in September 2015, an ally wrote to Podesta to praise her appearance. “Thought she was really good. Really good,” he wrote, before adding: “She sometimes laughs a little too hard at jokes that aren’t that funny. Other than that.”
Podesta responded with humor: “Laughing too hard,” he wrote, “is her authentic weirdness.”
David Harsanyi commentary: Like Trump, Clinton also tells some whoppers
Monday October 24, 2016 5:00 AM
The third and mercifully final presidential debate also turned out to be the most conventional. Fox News’ Chris Wallace did a solid job pressing the candidates on issues in Las Vegas, giving them space to spar but not enough space to get out of control.
Of course, not even a strong moderator will deter candidates from misleading, lying and prevaricating all night. And since we know Trump’s performance will be comprehensively fact-checked by the entire media, let’s talk about three of Clinton’s biggest whoppers.
First, when pressed by Wallace to explain her opposition to the 2008 landmark District of Columbia v. Heller decision, Clinton went through a checklist of platitudes before saying, ”You mentioned the Heller decision, and what I was saying that you reference, Chris, was that I disagreed with the way the court applied the Second Amendment in that case because what the District of Columbia was trying to do was protect toddlers from guns.”
Clinton brought up ”toddlers” a few more times because little children are mostly adorable and no one wants to see them shot. The thing is, the Heller case revolves around Richard Heller, the then-66-year-old police officer in Washington, D.C., who was allowed to carry a gun in a federal office building to protect politicians and strangers but not in his home to protect himself, his family or his property. Also of note, the Heller decision had nothing to do with toddlers or saving toddlers’ lives or toddler gun safety or toddlers shooting at one another.
After she was done fearmongering, Clinton went on to say, ”there’s no doubt that I respect the Second Amendment, that I also believe there’s an individual right to bear arms.”
No, she does not. Heller ended the ”total ban on handguns” in Washington, D.C. It codified the Second Amendment as an individual right to keep and bear arms for self-defense. Clinton admits she supports an effective ban on all handguns (for the toddlers), which is what instigated Heller. What application of the decision does she oppose, if not the individual’s right to own a gun?
Let’s move to the only constitutional ”right” Clinton believes shouldn’t have any constraints: abortion. Last night, Clinton reiterated her support for legal abortion on demand for any reason throughout the entire pregnancy. Although Clinton is free to hold this position, she’s not free to make stuff up.
For starters, the idea that Clinton — the woman who, in 2008, argued that President Obama’s health care plans were too modest — wants to keep government out of health-care decisions is worthy of 8,000 Pinocchios. Clinton’s insinuation that most late-term abortions are to save the life of the mother is not backed up by evidence.
Dr. Leroy Carhart, nationally known for performing late-term abortions, was taped admitting that he often performs elective late-term abortions at 26 weeks ”or more.” Dr. Martin Haskell, the pioneer of partial-birth abortion, was once taped acknowledging that 80 percent of partial-birth abortions are ”purely elective.”
Though Clinton acknowledges that Roe v. Wade allows for some limits on abortion, she has never supported a single one. Today, the health exemption is being used to end the life of a viable fetus for nearly any reason at all.
These kinds of deceits have long been a part of the culture wars. But I was a bit taken aback by Clinton’s, dare I say, Trumpian dishonesty on economics. For instance, she said, word for word, ”I also will not add a penny to the debt.”
Clinton could tax the wealthy at a 90 percent top-marginal rate, raise rates on corporations and enact every other trickle-down tax on consumers she desires, and there’s still no way she would not add to the national debt. If she failed to enact her agenda and did absolutely nothing as president, Clinton would still add to the debt. The Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, which accepts her economic plan on its face, estimates that her policies would cost $200 billion and cause public debt to rise from over $14 trillion to more than $23 trillion over the next decade.
Like me, you might find this estimate implausibly low. But even in the fantastical world of contemporary progressive economics, $200 billion is a lot more than a ”penny.” Like many of the contentions we heard in Las Vegas, it was a lie peddled for political purposes.
“F*** off!” Hillary told him and his fellow bodyguards. “It’s enough I have to see you s***-kickers every day! I’m not going to talk to you, too! Just do your goddam job and keep your mouth shut.”
Inside ‘Bill Clinton Inc.’: Hacked memo reveals intersection of charity and personal income
The 2011 document, written by a top Bill Clinton aide, was disclosed by WikiLeaks.
The memo, made public Wednesday by the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks, lays out the aggressive strategy behind lining up the consulting contracts and paid speaking engagements for Bill Clinton that added tens of millions of dollars to the family’s fortune, including during the years that Hillary Clinton led the State Department. It describes how Band helped run what he called “Bill Clinton Inc.,” obtaining “in-kind services for the President and his family — for personal travel, hospitality, vacation and the like.”
