Vet who used a bow and arrow to kill a 'feral' cat - has her license suspended

A vet who used a bow and arrow to kill a neighbor's cat which had wandered onto her home and then boasted about it online has been suspended.

Beneath a shocking image of her holding the dead animal, still with an arrow in her head, Kristen Lindsey wrote: 'My first bow kill... lol. The only good feral tomcat is one with an arrow through it's (sic) head. Vet of the year award... gladly accepted.'

She was judged by the Texas Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners to have been cruel to the animal, named Tiger, and was banned from practicing for a year.

The Atlantic’s Ball: FBI Docs, Speech Transcripts 'Play Right Into Voters Distrust' of Hillary

Monday on CNN’s “Wolf,” while discussing the latest reports of the State Department pressuring the FBI to mark some of then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton emails asunclassified, The Atlantic’s Molly Ball said, “So many of these leaks and these revelations play right into this distrust voters have for Hillary Clinton.”

Ball said, “Well the Clinton campaign of course says nothing to see here. They point out the alleged quid pro quo in the emails, not to get too far into the weeds, never occurred. What was proposed to have the classification change didn’t actually happen. But I think beyond that there’s a lot of stuff in these transcripts and in the FBI documents that we can expect Secretary Clinton to be asked about in the third presidential debate on Wednesday—and has had a hard time answering a lot of these questions previously. I think it’s part of what’s keeping the race close is that so many of these leaks and these revelations play right into this distrust voters have for Hillary Clinton.”

Florida man with half a head arrested for attempted murder, arson

MIAMI (CBS12) —Officers of the Miami Police Department say a man with a deformed skull is charged with arson and attempted murder after setting a mattress on fire.

The incident happened just after 2:30 p.m. Monday, according to officers, who identified the suspect as 31-year-old Carlos Rodriguez.

In the arrest report, officers say they responded along with firefighters to 266 NW 61st Avenue to Rodriguez’s home after someone called 911 and reported a mattress set on fire.

The report also says that Rodriguez’s home is a duplex, owned by his mother Anicia. Officers say there were two tenants that lived in the duplex connected to Rodriguez’s unit.

State Dept. won't fire top official in latest email scandal

The State Department rejected calls from Congress to fire a top official for his role in an apparent scheme to downplay the classified information found on Hillary Clinton's private email server, and instead accused the FBI of getting its facts wrong.

According to FBI notes released Monday, Patrick Kennedy, the undersecretary for management at the department, offered a trade with the FBI in order to get the FBI to declassify a classified email. In return, the FBI suggested that the State Department back more FBI officials in Iraq.

The deal was never done, but the discussion of it prompted GOP lawmakers to say Kennedy needs to be fired. But spokesman Mark Toner said Monday that Kennedy wasn't going anywhere.

"Well, that's their prerogative, but I can say that Pat Kennedy is going to remain at his job, and he has the full confidence of the secretary of state," he said.

WikiLeaks: Politico Reporter Offered Clinton Camp Chance to Edit Story

ANSWER To Earlier Quiz

Who am I?

My name is Jimmy Walker and I was the  Democrat Mayor of New York City from in office from January1,1926 to September 1, 1932. A real slickster, I also served as a NY Senator before becoming mayor. I was deep in politics most of my adult life as you'll see from my bio link!

I was quite the swinger in my day. I was audacious and all of New York loved me, even the corrupt machines in the city's underbelly.

I disappeared in the dark of night after being busted for several counts of corruption during the Tammany Hall days in New York. See, I was in cahoots with William "Boss" Tweed, which unfortunately, led to my downfall.

After my escape, I toured Europe with my Ziegfeld gal pal (who I eventually married) to avoid prosecution - with New York taxpayers' money no less.

As you can see, I do have a lot in common with Hillary Clinton, but in my dishonest and corrupted opinion, she's far worse!

By George, 10:54AM You were the FIRST to guess who I am. Congrats goes out to Contestant 1054A!

It never hurts to learn some history, it just might save your future.

Podesta To Mills: 'Think We Should Hold Emails To And From Potus?'

A March 4, 2015 email from Hillary Clinton's friend and later campaign chairman John Podesta to Cheryl Mills queried as to whether to withhold email exchanges sent through Clinton’s private email server to President Obama.

The email was seemingly triggered by the House Benghazi Committee telling Clinton on March 1 to preserve and hand over all her emails. As CNSNews reports, “The FBI report on Clinton's emailsnotes on Page 18 that on March 3, 2015, the United States House Select Committee on Benghazi provided a letter to the law firm Williams & Connolly requesting the preservation and production of all documents and media related to the email addresses hdr22@clintonemail.com and hrcl7@clintonemail.com.”

How retailers can respond to minimum wage and overtime pressures

Retailers already facing minimum wage increases across the country are now also facing new federal overtime rules that may further affect their labor costs.

As if cultural shifts in consumer preferences and buying habits are not enough to deal with on the top line, the new labor policies pose additional challenges on the bottom line.

Currently, salaried workers who make $23,660 or less are eligible for time-and-a-half overtime pay if they exceed 40 hours a week. Starting Dec. 1, 2016, the salary threshold will nearly double as workers who make $47,476 a year or less will be eligible.

Specialty retailers in traditionally low-cost areas, such as the South and Midwest, will be affected the most as their assistant managers and managers will likely qualify for overtime. These retailers typically have smaller store footprints and lower volume, and their assistant managers and managers often make below the new threshold.

Tonight At 8pm

ABC will be airing It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown tonight at 8pm (before the debate at 9pm)

A Vote For Treason

It has taken several months and a number of email dumps from Wikileaks to finally figure out what this presidential election is all about. There are only two ways to vote, for Donald Trump or for Hillary Clinton. But neither of those are what one would be voting for.

A vote for Donald Trump is a vote to resist the massive corruption of government, a vote against globalism, against "global warming" or "climate change" theology; it is a vote against media collusion and interference in politics. A vote for Donald Trump is not a vote for the person at all, that is why despite the media onslaught of negative stories about him as a person carries no weight with those who support him, because they don't support him at all, they support what he represents, which is a chance to hold Hillary Clinton responsible for her crimes and therefore all of the crooked politicians of 2012 who coerced votes out of their Republican base only to turn on them the next day.

Likewise, a vote for Hillary Clinton is a vote for a transformed America, a quasi-police state where the government intervenes in business and forces some out of business while subsidizing other businesses that could not possibly sustain themselves without massive graft and media brainwashing. All of those businesses would be held hostage to a criminal organization originating from the White House. It would be a vote to end forever the concept of individual rights. Hillary Clinton would do no less than continue the work of the Obama Administration to destroy individual rights and nearly half of the nation is in favor of just that. It would be a continued replacement of the voters who value the principles of the founding of this nation with those who have no like expectation. It is a vote for the sudden disappearance of websites like this one.

Marriott Plans New $600-Million Office and Hotel Complex in Montgomery County, Maryland


New state-of-the-art facility in downtown Bethesda will house about 3,500 corporate jobs, and solidify iconic company’s presence in state for decades

ANNAPOLIS, MD – Marriott International, Inc., the world’s leading hotel company, announced today plans to relocate its global corporate office to a state-of-the-art, build-to-suit $600-million facility to be located in downtown Bethesda in Montgomery County. The county has been Marriott’s home for more than 60 years. The new complex will house more than 3,500 employees in approximately 700,000 square feet of leased office space. The company is continuing its consideration of several sites in downtown Bethesda, and is expected to select a final site in the first half of 2017. Marriott plans to occupy the new space before the expiration of its current lease at 10400 Fernwood Road in late 2022. Marriott also announced that a 200+ room, Marriott-branded hotel will be built on the site.

As part of the announcement, Marriott President and CEO Arne Sorenson said, “Marriott has been headquartered in Montgomery County, Maryland for more than 60 years and we intend to remain close to our roots. Our goal is to provide a cutting-edge workspace for our associates that offers state-of-the-art technology, modern amenities, and access to a range of transportation options.” Sorenson added, “We also plan to manage a new 200+ room Marriott-branded hotel to be built on the site, which will be a significant economic driver for the community. After a comprehensive review of many excellent options in Washington, D.C., as well as Arlington and Fairfax counties in Northern Virginia, and North Bethesda, we have narrowed our search to downtown Bethesda, an area which offers multiple sites that meet our priority needs.”

Trump demands resignation of State Dept. undersecretary at the center of FBI firestorm about 'quid pro quo' proposal to bury Benghazi email

Donald Trump told a screaming crowd of supporters in Green Bay, Wisconsin on Monday night that electing him is the best way to end the 'corruption' exhibited in the Hillary Clinton investigative documents released by the FBI earlier in the day.

And he called for the ouster of Patrick Kennedy, the State Department undersecretary at the center of Monday's firestorm.

Calling Clinton-related corruption 'magnitudes worse than Watergate,' Trump castigated Kennedy for trying to persuade the bureau to declassify one of Hillary Clinton's emails related to the 2012 Benghazi, Libya terror attack.

'Kennedy illegally pressured the FBI to un-classify emails from Hillary's illegal server,' he said. 'That's a lot of illegality in that one statement!'

'In other words, the State Department was trying to cover up Hillary’s crimes of sending classified information on a server our enemies could easily access, by trying to reverse the classification,' Trump said.

Riding in Cars With Huma: Hillary Clinton Snubbed Diplomats to Stay Near Aide

Hillary Clinton “blatantly” disregarded security and diplomatic protocols as Secretary of State and frequently insulted U.S. ambassadors by refusing to ride with them to diplomatic events abroad, a former U.S. diplomatic security officer told FBI agents investigating Clinton’s private email server.

According to FBI interview notes released Monday, the former security officer described the “stark difference” between Hillary Clinton’s conduct as secretary of state and the conduct of her predecessor Condoleezza Rice, who closely adhered to the appropriate protocols. Hillary’s “abundant” protocol breaches, on the other hand, were widely known in the diplomatic security community.

One area of particular concern was Hillary’s refusal to follow “standard security and diplomatic” protocol by riding with local U.S. ambassadors in an armored limousine to diplomatic events abroad. It was standard procedure for the secretary of state and the ambassador to arrive together at these events, but Hillary refused, and insisted on riding with her top aide Huma Abedin.

According to the FBI notes, “This frequently resulted in complaints by ambassadors who were insulted and embarrassed by this breach of protocol.”

Donald Trump can win despite biased media, Republican traitors

LAS VEGAS — Donald Trump is still in this race, and he can still win it.

Obviously, he has had a rough couple of weeks. Democrats and the Clinton campaign — by which I mean the media — have thrown more slime and dirt at the Republican presidential nominee than any other politician in the history of television.

Yet, Mr. Trump is still standing.

Down in the polls, perhaps. But nowhere near where a lesser candidate or a weaker man would be if he had endured all that Mr. Trump has.

Other jurisdictions affected are California, District of Columbia, Illinois, Louisiana, Missouri, New Jersey, Oregon, Washington and Wisconsin.

Its website includes a flow-chart that describes how the company has contributed to elections in the U.S. from 2006-2015 with “57,000 voting and counting machines deployed” and “35 million voters assisted.”

In 2005, Smartmatic bought-out California-based Sequoia Voting Systems and entered the world of U.S. elections.

According to Smarmatic’s website, “In less than one year Smartmatic tripled Sequoia’s market share” and “has offered technology and support services to the Electoral Commissions of 307 counties in 16 States.”

Vandals throw bricks through windows at Delaware County Republican Party office

DELAWARE COUNTY, Ind. – The Delaware County Republican Party said vandals struck at their office last week.

Someone threw two landscaping bricks through a window on Oct. 8. Signs for Donald Trump and Todd Young were hanging on the window at the time, according to the group’s Facebook page.

Officials said it would cost about $1,200 to replace the broken window and said anyone interested in helping cover the cost could donate online.

This week, Delaware County Sheriff Ray Dudley said his office has received reports of campaign signs being taken from yards in the Yorktown and Mount Pleasant Township area.

Dudley said the reports were being taken seriously and that removing signs without the authority to do so may be criminal conversion under Indiana’s criminal code.

The Missing "Oh Shit" Link Revealed: Hillary Admits "I Asked That They Be Deleted"

Back in September we wrote about the circumstances leading up to the "Oh Shit" moment when Paul Combetta of Platte River Networks deleted Hillary's 30,000 "personal emails" (the full notes is here: "The "Oh Shit" Moment: Hillary Wiped Her Server With BleachBit Despite Subpoena"). Within the original FBI interview notes, Hillary "stated she never deleted, nor did she instruct anyone to delete, her e-mails to avoid complying with FOIA, State, or FBI requests for information." Moreover, just last week, in sworn testimony provided to Judicial Watch, Hillary also denied asking for the emails to be deleted. That said, a new email discovered in the latest WikiLeaks dump seems to offer a direct contradiction to what Hillary previously told both the FBI and Judicial Watch.

So which version is true?

- FBI Notes: "Clinton stated she was also unaware of the March 2015 e-mail deletions by PRN."

- Judicial Watch Testimony: "She believes that her personal e-mails were not kept, and she does not have any personal knowledge about the details of that process."

- Private Talking Points (WikiLeaks): "As I said in March, I chose not to keep the personal ones. I asked that they be deleted."

Before getting into the details, here is the background from the FBI notes on how Hillary's personal emails came to be deleted.

Shortly after providing the data dump to the State Department, in "December 2014 or January 2015," both Heather Samuelson and Cheryl Mills requested that all emails be removed from their computers using "a program called BleachBit to delete the e-mail-related files so they could not be recovered."

For her part, "Clinton stated she never deleted, nor did she instruct anyone to delete, her e-mails to avoid complying with FOIA, State or FBI requests for information" though the following notes suggest she did agree to change her email retention policy to 60 days.

Trump attacks Joe Biden and highlights his 'long history of groping'

Still battered by accusations that he made unwanted advances on women and touched them without consent, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is pointing to vice president Joe Biden's 'long history of groping.'

Trump Monday morning retweeted a video posted by New York broadcaster Mark Simone titled, 'Watch Joe Biden's Long History Of Grabbing, Kissing and Groping Women Who Are Cringing.'

The video, set to mood music that might be found in a 1970s skin flick, stitches together footage of Biden, known as a back-slapping politician when he was in the Senate, touching, massaging, and whispering to a number of women during televised swearing-in ceremonies there.

Podesta's Iran Deal Admission Exposes Tragic Results Of AP's 2013 Treachery

A search at the Associated Press's main national site on "Podesta Iran" (not in quotes) returns no items relating to a Wikileaks-released email exposing how Hillary Clinton 2016 campaign manager John Podesta agreed with a Republican senator in July 2015 that the deal which had been "negotiated" by the Obama administration with Iran would lead to "a nuclear war in the Persian Gulf." (The word "negotiated" is in quotes because, other than releasing hostages it never should have captured or held, Iran appears not to have given up anything.)

There's a reason beyond the routine journalistic negligence for which AP is so well-known why it has ignored this (excuse the pun) bombshell. The AP's own self-congratulatory actions contributed to the situation Podesta tersely acknowledged.

In 2013, the AP hid what it knew about the existence of secret discussions between the Obama administration and Iran concerning the latter country's possession and use of nuclear materials. The Obama administration asked a journalist at another outlet and the AP to keep quiet about what they knew — and they did.

The AP's Julie Pace went on national TV in November 2013 to revel in how the wire service had kept talks between the U.S. and Iran secret for eight months, leading to what was described then as "The Geneva deal."

Clinton Treatment of State Dept. Security 'Contemptuous'

Hillary Clinton’s treatment of State Department security personnel was “so contemptuous” that many left the agency or requested a reassignment during her tenure as secretary of state, according to FBI documents released Monday.

“Prior to CLINTON’s tenure, being an agent on the Secretary of State’s protective detail was seen as an honor and privilege reserved for senior agents. However, by the end of CLINTON’s tenure, it was staffed largely with new agents because it was difficult to find senior agents willing to work for her,” an FBI interview summary reads, the New York Post reported.

The FBI interviewed an unnamed Homeland Security official who previously worked for the State Department as part of the bureau’s investigation into Clinton’s handling of classified information while heading the department.

The unnamed official told investigators that Secret Service agents also had a difficult time working under Clinton. The official said the Democratic nominee demanded a window in her armored vehicle be opened during a trip to Palestine despite security warnings from the driver.

The document also detailed Clinton’s insistence to go on with a photo opportunity in an area in Jakarta, Indonesia, that security personnel had deemed too dangerous.

Police Officers’ Lawsuit Against Freddie Gray Prosecutor Marilyn Mosby Could Strip Her of Immunity

The lawsuits filed against Marilyn Mosby, the Baltimore District Attorney who tried unsuccessfully to prosecute six Baltimore police officers for the death of Freddie Gray, could have far-reaching consequences.

Warren Alperstein, a legal analyst, told the local CBS affiliate that if the lawsuits filed by the officers are allowed to continue, Mosby could lose her immunity and her compulsion to testify in the case could cause major rifts in the state’s attorney office.

“You can bet that the officers and the attorneys are champing at the bit to get Mrs. Mosby under oath,” Alperstein told CBS.

Alperstein noted that the highly political decisions Mosby made by her failed attempts to prosecute the officers for the death of Freddie Gray could force her to testify and eliminate her immunity.

“In a civil case like this, you as a defendant don’t have that right. You must testify or be held in contempt of court,” said Alperstein. “It is unprecedented. It is unheard of.”

The lawsuits were filed starting in April just before every officer Mosby tried to prosecute for the suspect’s death was thrown out of court.

Statue of naked Hillary Clinton leads to tussle in NYC

NEW YORK -- A statue of a topless, hoofed Hillary Clinton appeared outside a subway station Tuesday, prompting a tussle after one woman purposely knocked it down and sat on it to prevent others from picking it back up.

The display marked the second time a life-size, exaggerated depiction of a naked presidential nominee has surfaced outside a Manhattan subway stop during the general election campaign. In August, an artist’s statue of an unclothed Donald Trump was eventually hauled away by city workers.

But the crowd’s reaction to the naked Clinton was markedly different from that to the Trump statue, when a largely jovial group of onlookers took photos of it and posed for selfies. Some parts of the portly Trump’s genitalia were visible in that statue.

On Tuesday, a woman can be seen on video taken by a reporter for the New York Daily News dragging the life-size structure of the Democratic presidential nominee to the ground, stomping on it and even sitting on top of it to prevent a man from standing it back up again.

FBI Notes: Clinton Routinely Breached Security And Diplomatic Protocol

As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton routinely breached security and diplomatic protocol, according to an FBI interview with a professional who served on Clinton’s protective detail.

The agent worked for both Clinton and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and described to the FBI a “stark difference” between the two when it came to obeying protocol.

“Rice observed strict adherence to State Department security and diplomatic protocols while Clinton frequently and ‘blatantly’ disregarded them,” the interview notes read.

Some examples:

Riding With Huma –

Clinton frequently refused to arrive at foreign diplomatic functions with the local ambassador, choosing her chief of staff Huma Abedin to ride in the vehicle with her instead.

“This frequently resulted in complaints by ambassadors who were insulted and embarrassed by this breach of protocol,” the report read.

The report noted that Abedin possessed “much more power” over Clinton’s schedule.

Lawmakers’ wives urge voters to look past Donald Trump’s offensive remarks, focus on policies

As the presidential race sank into R-rated territory, the wives of three sitting congressmen urged a dozen women sipping iced tea at Darryl’s Wood-Fired Grill last week to rise above the fray and get out the vote — for Donald Trump.

Citing issues such as border security and the future of the Supreme Court, they said the Republican nominee’s vision for the country far outweighed the torrent of bad press the mogul had been receiving for his words and purported actions against women.

“Place your trust in him. He deserves it,” said Lolita Zinke, the wife of Rep. Ryan K. Zinke, a Montana Republican and former Navy SEAL.

For these women, the calculus is straightforward: Mr. Trump may be a cad, but Mrs. Clinton, the Democratic nominee, has done things they abhor, including failing to secure the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, and promising to let more Syrian refugees into the U.S. amid questions about the vetting process.

“Donald Trump’s character is not actually what we’re voting on. We’re voting on his vision, his policy and his concerns,” said Debbie Meadows, the wife of Rep. Mark Meadows, North Carolina Republican. “What we share are his concerns — for national security, for changing the direction of this nation. And that hasn’t changed.”

They also rejected the idea that Mrs. Clinton’s historic run as a female candidate should make them natural allies.

“It’s an insult to think I would vote for anyone based on the fact we share the same anatomy,” said LeeAnn Johnson, the wife of Rep. Bill Johnson, Ohio Republican.

Video Sting Exposes ‘Bird-Dogging’ — Democrats’ Effort to Incite Violence at Trump Rallies

Democrats have used trained provocateurs to instigate violence at Republican events nationwide throughout the 2016 election cycle, including at several Donald Trump rallies, using a tactic called “bird-dogging,” according to a new video investigation released Monday by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas.

The goal of “bird-dogging”: to create a sense of “anarchy” around Donald Trump that would undermine his political support. Often, the tactic uses the most vulnerable people — including the elderly and disabled — to maximize shock value.

O’Keefe’s extensive video investigation reveals that the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) are involved in “bird-dogging” and other provocative tactics through a web of consultants led by Robert Creamer, a veteran Chicago activist and convicted felon who is thought to have planned Democrats’ political strategy during the push for Obamacare in 2009 and 2010.

Creamer is also the co-founder of Democracy Partners, a consulting group that, according to Project Veritas videos, apparently contracts directly with the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC, and that works with an array of super PACs and consultants to organize, film and publicize their provocations.

BREAKING NOW: Elderly Woman Exposes Hillary’s Massive Voter Fraud Scheme in Florida

Democrats have long asserted that voter fraud is nearly non-existent, which is exactly what you would say if you were engaging in voter fraud. A recently uncovered scandal in Florida, however, is exposing the real intent of the Democratic party, and some insight into how they plan to win the election for Hillary Clinton in November.

A liberal political action group that has registered nearly 6,000 new Democratic voters in a single Florida county likely thought they had an easy mark in Marina Agosto, an 83-year-old Hispanic woman. What they didn’t realize was that Agosto was a life-long Republican who was determined tofind out who was trying to steal her vote. In doing so, she exposed a massive voter fraud scheme meant to benefit Hillary Clinton.

WFLA in Florida broke the story that could shift the balance of power not just in Florida, but in the Oval Office. Even more amazing than the massive voter fraud that appears to be taking place is the indifferent response from county election officials who don’t seem to care about the situation. From WFLA:

When 83-year-old lifelong Republican Marina Agosto received a new voter ID card that told her she was now a registered Democrat, she and her daughter Minerva headed to the Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections office to find out why.

She is outraged that someone would use her name to commit voter registration fraud here in a swing state, where every single vote is so important. She is even more bothered that the Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections office wasn’t taking her seriously.

“They insisted that she had done it and that you must have forgotten. ‘You must haveforgotten.’ And she was very irate,” Minerva said.

Special Treatment Gave Vanessa Kerry $9M In Contracts

Peace Corps officials directed Department of State funds to a nonprofit run by Secretary of State John Kerry’s daughter by disqualifying other potential applicants through half-hearted analysis.

“We’ll never know, but this market research seems like an effort to steer this deal to Kerry’s group, which might not have been in the government’s best interest,” Project On Government Oversight (POGO) General Counsel Scott Amey told The Daily Caller News Foundation. POGO is a nonprofit watchdog that has extensively investigated government contracts among other oversight issues.

The State Department funneled more than $9 million through the Peace Corps to Seed Global Health – a nonprofit run by Kerry’s daughter, Dr. Vanessa Kerry, TheDCNF previously revealed. Seed received the money through Peace Corps contracts for the Global Health Service Partnership (GHSP), which were awarded without competition.

“The sole source deal looks a bit fishy,” Amey told TheDCNF.

Eastern Shore fire company collects donations for Hurricane Matthew relief

KENT ISLAND, Md. - People are still cleaning up from the effects of Hurricane Matthew, and some fire companies are helping with the cleanup effort.

Justin Davis, with the Grasonville Fire Department, has been in contact with Northwood Fire and Rescue in Lumberton, North Carolina. First responders in North Carolina say they are still in bad shape.

So Davis, with the help of Ferndale Fire Department in Anne Arundel County, is trying to get an 18-wheeler full of supplies to help those in need.

"The main thing is blankets. The chief did tell us a lot of people in the shelters are still in the clother they were rescued in," Davis said.

Davis was hoping to leave Tuesday, but the fire chief in North Carolina told them they're still experiencing difficulties from Matthew.

A WORD ABOUT DONALD TRUMP

Hi everybody.

I just wanted to take a moment to clarify my position on Donald Trump, as well as Steve Green’s and Scott Ott’s.

We have all three been critical of Mr. Trump; sometimes deeply critical of him. Over the years the three of us have more or less settled into what we feel is the classic, small-government, pro-individual and pro-freedom philosophy that we call modern conservatism. Donald Trump shares some of these values and rejects others. None of us believe him to be a racist, a xenophobe, a misogynist or any of the other slanders leveled at him by the mainstream media. That said, we have seen on a number of occasions examples where Mr. Trump seemed more concerned about defending some small point of personal attack than hammering Hillary Clinton where she is vulnerable, and she is vulnerableeverywhere. Our criticisms of him and his campaign reflect a desire to learn from an examination of missed opportunities, and no team, or army, or cause, can be successful if they are not willing to examine themselves tirelessly and sometimes ruthlessly.

I say all of that simply to say this. I will be voting for Donald Trump. I am also encouraging others to vote for him, and my next Firewall will attempt to be the definitive argument for Trump and against Clinton. Steve Green will be voting for him as well.

How Some Viewers Watch The Debates...


Millennials Pretty Cool With Socialism

A report released Monday reveals a growing acceptance of socialist and Marxist viewpoints among younger Americans born after the Cold War.

Nearly half—45 percent—of those aged between 16 and 20 years old said they would vote for a socialist, while one in five responded they would vote for a communist, the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation found.

Reasons for the widespread backing Bernie Sanders garnered among millennials during the primary election were also evident in the survey, with younger generations expressing greater support for remarks made by the Vermont senator than quotes from the Bible or free market economist Milton Friedman.

This trend, dubbed the Bernie Sanders “bounce,” was also evident in findings that less than half of young Americans viewed capitalism favorably. Nearly three in four millennials favored policies promoted by Sanders versus just over half who preferred those put forward by Friedman.

Marion Smith, executive director of the organization, said in a statement the study confirms the group’s fears that “an emerging generation of Americans have little understanding of the collectivist system and its dark history.”

This sentiment is particularly notable in the lack of knowledge among young Americans of communist leaders.

One in four Americans believe more people were killed under former President George W. Bush than under former Soviet Union dictator Joseph Stalin, whose regime slaughtered some 20 million people between 1924 and 1953..

General Cartwright is paying the price for Hillary Clinton’s sins

The Obama administration Justice Department has investigated three senior officials for mishandling classified information over the past two years but only one faces a felony conviction, possible jail time and a humiliation that will ruin his career: former Joint Chiefs of Staff vice chairman General James E. Cartwright. The FBI’s handling of the case stands in stark contrast to its treatment of Hillary Clinton and retired General David Petraeus — and it reeks of political considerations.

Monday marked a stunning fall from grace for Cartwright, the man once known as “Obama’s favorite general,” who pleaded guilty to the felony charge of lying to the FBI during its investigation into the leaking of classified information about covert operations against Iran to two journalists. His lawyer Greg Craig said in a statement that Cartwright spoke with David Sanger of the New York Times and Dan Klaidman of Newsweek as a confirming source for stories they had already reported, in an effort to prevent the publication of harmful national security secrets.

Under his plea deal, Cartwright could face up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Last year, Petraeus cut a deal with the Justice Department after admitting he had lied to the FBI and passed hundreds of highly classified documents to his biographer and mistress Paula Broadwell. He pleaded guilty to a single misdemeanor of mishandling classified information and was sentenced to two years probation and a $100,000 fine.

Clinton was not charged at all for what FBI Director James B. Comey called“extremely careless” handling of “very sensitive, highly classified information.” Comey said that although there was “evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information,” the FBI’s judgment was that no reasonable prosecutor would have filed charges against Clinton or her associates.

Obama's Brother Will Be at Tomorrow's Debate, Cheering On Donald Trump

Not everyone in the Obama family believes that Republican nominee Donald Trump is unfit to be president of the United States.

At tomorrow night's presidential debate in Las Vegas, Trump will be joined by Barack Obama's half-brother Malik Obama, who supports the New York businessman. Malik, an American citizen who lives in Washington, D.C. when he's not in Kenya, says he will be a guest of Trump.

“I’m excited to be at the debate. Trump can make America great again,” Malik told The Post.

“I look very much forward to meeting and being with Malik,” Trump said. “He gets it far better than his brother.”

Customers Accuse Comcast Of Using “Broadcast TV” & “Regional Sports” Fees To Illegally Hike Rates

As we showed in our recent line-by-line breakdowns of charges on your cable bills, many pay-TV providers charge fees that have the effect of raising the customers’ monthly bill but without affecting the base rate the cable company advertises. Now, Comcast subscribers in seven different states are claiming that these fees are “illegal and deceptive” that have netted the cable giant billions of dollars.

The complaint [PDF], filed Oct. 15 in a federal court in California, involves two specific fees charged by Comcast: The “Broadcast TV Fee” and the “Regional Sports Fee.”

Land Of The Fee

Comcast first announced the Broadcast TV Fee in 2013, as a way to recover some of what the cable provider pays to carry the over-the-air networks. That presumably includes NBC, which is owned by Comcast.

[Ed. Note: After obtaining and then reading through this complaint, we noticed that our 2013 story on this fee is actually quoted in the lawsuit. Small world, huh.]

This fee started out at $1.50 but in our 2015 review of cable bills, it had already jumped up to $5.00. With some 20 million pay-TV customers nationwide, that’s around $100 million per month that Comcast is bringing in from this one fee alone.

Some of What WikiLeaks Has Taught Us So Far...



Hospital Employees Rally Together To Fill Brooke’s Toy Closet


SALISBURY – Peninsula Regional Medical Center employees came to work Monday with toys in hand in an effort to fill Brooke’s Toy Closet for its third year.

The “Bring a Toy to Work Day” honored Brooke Mulford, an 11-year-old Delmarva native who has battled neuroblastoma since 2009.

Mulford began the closet in 2014 with the help of her classmates at Salisbury Christian School. The donations have since gone to children in the hospital’s emergency room and pediatrics unit.

Mulford, who now resides in New Jersey for more accessible treatment at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, was in attendance with her mother Amy for the day’s collection.

USAID is leaving Ecuador

Publishers Notes: This report is from 30 September. Looking at the timeline, events leading up to Kerry's threats to bomb Ecuador were already in the works when he said it.

BOGOTA, Colombia — Under pressure from Ecuador’s left-wing government, the United States Agency for International Development is shutting down its operations in the South American nation after 53 years.

In a telephone interview with GlobalPost, Adam Namm, the US ambassador to Ecuador, called the decision “very disappointing.”

But it was no surprise. The government in Quito had refused to allow Washington's aid agency to renew its programs or start any new activity in the country.

President Rafael Correa is a fierce US critic who has already pulled the plug on US counter-narcotics operations at a Pacific coast base and expelled Namm’s predecessor as well as 14 US military advisers, whom he claimed were infiltrating Ecuador’s security forces.

Analysts say that the closure of the Agency for International Development, the US government foreign aid wing known as USAID, is part of a broader effort by Correa to stifle criticism of his administration and to halt what he views as outside meddling in Ecuador.

HILLARY BUS CAUGHT ILLEGALLY DUMPING POOP IN STREET

'Toilet paper was scattered everywhere, and there was a foul smell'

It looks like properly disposing of No. 2 is not Hillary Clinton’s No. 1 priority.

A Clinton campaign “Forward Together” bus has been caught dumping foul-smelling human waste into the street and down a storm drain in Lawrenceville, Georgia, according to several reports.

“Police say when they arrived on the scene, toilet paper was scattered everywhere and there was a foul smell,” reported Atlanta’s WGCL-TV 46.

Democratic strategist Robert Creamer steps down from post after video surfaced

Senior Democratic strategist resigns after video surfaces showing his staff planning to incite violence at Trump rallies and discussing paying mentally-ill people to disrupt GOP events

A Democratic operative campaigning for Hilary Clinton has resigned and another has been fired after a video surfaced purportedly showing members of their organization discussing ways to incite violence at Donald Trump rallies.

Robert Creamer — the husband of Democratic Rep. Jan Schakowsky of Illinois — said he was 'stepping back' from his role after conservative activist James O'Keefe released footage appearing to show senior staffers plotting ways to undermined the Republican candidate's campaign events.

In the video, Creamer and other strategists appear to advise protesters to get into situations where they would be captured on camera, producing footage that could be used at later stages of the race for the White House.

Sheriff Clarke: It Is 'Pitchforks and Torches' Time in America

Monday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Milwaukee Co., WI Sheriff David Clarke explained what he meant by a tweet last week declaring “pitchforks and torches time.”

Clarke didn’t back off of it and told Fox News his sentiments conveyed in the statement were similar to those of Frederick Douglass, Barack Obama and Bernie Sanders.

“I meant the same thing Frederick Douglass, the abolitionist, said, when he said the institution of slavery is an institution of brute force and it must be fought with its own weapons,” Clarke said. “I meant the same thing when Barack Obama in 2008 – in July of 2008 at a fundraiser in talking about how he would deal with Republicans when he said, ‘When they pull a knife, we’ll pull a gun.’ I said the same thing during the entire summer when we had to listen to Bernie Sanders the need for a revolution in America and the leftist media, Fox not included – Fox News, the leftist media had no problem with that.”

Clinton Foundation's "Backstabbing, Spoiled Brat" Chelsea Lists Her Grievances Against Doug Band And Justin Cooper

With each new WikiLeaks dump, the rabbit hole in the feud between Chelsea Clinton and Doug Band seems to grow a little deeper. The most recent disclosures included a November 11, 2011 email from Chelsea to John Podesta, Cheryl Mills and the Clinton Foundation lawyers at Simpson Thacher in which Chelsea clearly lists out her issues with Clinton aides Doug Band, Justin Cooper and someone referred to only as "Hannah," which is presumably Hannah Deletto, Director of Membership at the Clinton Foundation. Among other things, the email alleges that Justin Cooper installed spyware on Bill Clinton's computer in order to monitor his email traffic, that both Justin Cooper and Hannah Deletto stole "significant sums of money" from the Clintons and that Doug Band / Teneo "hustled business at CGI."

Chelsea's list of complaints from her email:

- today that Doug reached out to someone at Harry Walker (who represents my father on all speaking arrangements), to ask for a full list of all his speeches, how much he was paid for each speech, and told the contact person at Harry Walker that all speeches should now go through him, not Terry Krinivic (the scheduler)

- that Ilya physically saw/caught Justin a couple of days ago reading his bberry and loading the same spyware onto his computer that he loaded onto Bari's computer

- a secret service agent told Marc (my husband) that Justin had asked another secret service agent to lie about the parking pass absurdity [we can talk about this really ridiculous anecdote offline]

- multiple people shared with me how upset they were at hearing how Justin referred to my father in the last week - in very derogatory ways widely sadly

- Oscar told my father he knows Justin reads his emails

- my father was told today of explicit examples at CGI of Doug/ Teneo pushing for - and receiving - free memberships - and of multiple examples of Teneo 'hustling' business at CGI - and of people now having quit at CGI

- that Doug told Jon Davidson he was never going to forgive him for not reporting that Dad met with John (ie you John) on Sunday and that how could Jon forget who he really worked for

- Doug told Terry Krinivic she would never work again in this town if she didn't back him up on everything

- Ilya believes Hannah and Justin have taken significant sums of money from my parents personally - some in expenses - cars, etc. - and others directly

FBI docs: Clinton 'contemptuous' of security agents, put team at risk for photo op

Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was "contemptuous" toward security agents and even put officials traveling with her in “unnecessary danger” by pursuing a photo op for her "election campaign" in a risky area of Jakarta during a 2009 visit, according to a security agent interviewed by the FBI.

The allegations surfaced in documents released Monday by the FBI in connection with the investigation into Clinton's private email practices. Much of the documents center on internal disputes over email classification levels, but the interview with the unnamed diplomatic security agent offers a window into how her own detail viewed her actions early in her tenure.

The official, who was tasked with protecting Clinton, claimed agents had the perception she was using her position to campaign for president and were unhappy about her alleged disregard for security protocol.

'Take the money!' How Clinton campaign gleefully accepted cash from lobbyists for foreigners

Aides to Hillary Clinton considered a ban on bundling from lobbyists representing foreign interests, decided against it and forgot to tell the candidate.

Senior staff decided to bar lobbyists registered under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, FARA, from raising money for the campaign in a leaked email chain that began the day after Clinton announced her presidential bid.

They were persuaded to reverse their position after members of the finance team and a campaign lawyer pointed out how much money was at stake.

Hillary So Unpleasant Agents Didn't Want To Protect Her

Department of State security officers found then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton so unpleasant they refused to work on her security detail, a former agent claims in newly-released FBI documents.

The FBI Monday released 100 pages of documents relating to its investigation of Clinton’s private email server. The documents incorporate summaries of several interviews the FBI conducted, including one with a woman who served as an agent with the State Department’s Bureau of Diplomatic Security (DS) during Clinton’s time as secretary of state.

During her interview, the agent said Clinton treated agents rudely and with contempt, and was so unpleasant that senior agents typically avoided being on her security detail.

“[Redacted] explained that CLINTON’s treatment of DS agents on her protective detail was so contemptuous that many of them sought reassignment or employment elsewhere,” the interview summary says. “Prior to CLINTON’s tenure, being an agent on the Secretary of State’s protective detail was seen as an honor and privilege reserved for senior agents.

Is the system rigged? You betcha

Pat Buchanan: 'Big Media is the power that sustains the forces of globalism'

WASHINGTON –
“Remember, it’s a rigged system. It’s a rigged election,” said Donald Trump in New Hampshire on Saturday.

The stunned recoil in this city suggests this bunker buster went right down the chimney. As the French put it, “Il n’y a que la verite qui blesse.” It is only the truth that hurts.

In what sense is the system rigged?

Consider Big Media – the elite columnists and commentators, the dominant national press, and the national and cable networks, save Fox. Not in this writer’s lifetime has there been such blanket hatred and hostility of a presidential candidate of a major party.

“So what?” They reply. “We have a free press!”

But in this election, Big Media have burst out of the closet as an adjunct of the regime and the attack arm of the Clinton campaign, aiming to bring Trump down.

Half a century ago, Theodore White wrote of the power and bias of the “adversary press” that sought to bring down Richard Nixon.

“The power of the press in America,” wrote Teddy, “is a primordial one. It sets the agenda of public discussion; and this sweeping power is unrestrained by any law. It determines what people will talk about and think about – an authority that in other nations is reserved for tyrants, priests, parties and mandarins.”

EMAIL: Delay interviews until Hillary in 'right head space'

Did Hillary Clinton’s staff provide more proof that there is something wrong with her head?

In the 10th round of John Podesta emails released by Wikileaks, one shows Clinton communications advisors sought to delay interviews with the candidate so she could have more time “to be in the right head space.”

Advisors wanted to put out a statement acknowledging developments related to Clinton’s personal email server investigation.

On August 8, 2015, Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri wrote to her colleagues:

Friends – I have an update and a new idea to share.

First, I spoke with David and the earliest we could put out a statement about the thumb drive and server is later this afternoon. He has a 2 pm call to resolve remaining issues.

I think our best course now is to hold our staff statement till Sunday afternoon (past Sunday shows), have Brian and I do a lot of tv on Monday to air some of the issues out and then not have HRC do an interview until Tuesday. She would, however, have to do a media avail on Monday. Two benefits of this revised plan – we have a better sense of press reactions before having her sit down and it is more time for her to be in right head space. Given where she is now, I don’t think it is realistic to expect that an interview on Monday would go well. Do also think there is a value in having staff take first round of questions on this.

FBI Agents: Comey ‘Stood In The Way’ Of Clinton Investigation

FBI agents say the bureau is alarmed over Director James Comey’s decision to not suggest that the Justice Department prosecute Hillary Clinton over her mishandling of classified information.

According to an interview transcript given to The Daily Caller, provided by an intermediary who spoke to two federal agents with the bureau last Friday, agents are frustrated by Comey’s leadership.

“This is a textbook case where a grand jury should have been convened, but was not. That is appalling,” an FBI special agent who has worked public corruption and criminal cases said of the decision. “We talk about it in the office and don’t know how Comey can keep going.”

The agent was also surprised that the bureau did not bother to search Clinton’s house during the investigation.

Hillary Clinton accused of stealing furniture from the State Department by an FBI agent

Hillary Clinton has been accused of stealing furniture from the State Department and using it in her home, according to recently released FBI records.

The claim came from an ex-agent with the Bureau of Diplomatic Security who served as part of her security detail while in office.

A 100-page dossier also provides evidence of claims that Clinton's staff tried to convince the FBI to downgrade the classification of some emails on her private server in return for more special agents stationed abroad.

The dossier, which is redacted, does not show who initiated the discussion about altering the classification of the emails.

Wikileaks: Journalists Dined at Top Clinton Staffers' Homes Days Before Hillary's Campaign Launch

Several top journalists and TV news anchors RSVPed “yes” to attend a private, off-the-record gathering at the New York home of Joel Benenson, the chief campaign strategist for Hillary Clinton, two days before she announced her candidacy in 2015, according to emails Wikileaks has published from John Podesta’s purported accounts.

The guest list for an earlier event at the home of John Podesta was limited to reporters who were expected to cover Clinton on the campaign trail.

The email thread starts with Jesse Ferguson, the campaign’s Deputy National Press Secretary and Senior Spokesman, describing the venues and target audience of each gathering:

We wanted to make sure everyone on this email had the latest information on the two upcoming dinners with reporters. Both are off-the-record.

1) Thursday night, April 9th at 7:00p.m. Dinner at the Home of John Podesta… This will be with about 20 reporters who will closely cover the campaign (aka the bus).

2) Friday night, April 10th at 6:30p.m. Cocktails and Hors D’oeuvre at the Home of Joel Benenson… This is with a broader universe of New York reporters.

The “broader universe of New York reporters” includes several top news anchors for network and cable channels, many of whom are listed as a “yes” for the appearance:

Key Members For The Commission On Presidential Debates Are In Bed With Hillary Clinton

Chief members of the Commission on Presidential Debates have historically donated to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and to the Democratic party overall.

The Commission on Presidential Debates was founded in 1987 to ensure that debates are nonpartisan and provide the general public the best possible information. It is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation that has sponsored all debates since 1988.

Co-Chairman Michael D. McCurry donated to Hillary Clinton campaigns from 2000 to 2008, giving her a total of $5,650 over eight years. In 2006, during her first push for the White House, McCurry gave Clinton $2,100. There is even a Federal Elections Commission lawsuit that alleges McCurry gave $7,500 to Hillary Clinton from 2008 to 2012.

Richard D. Parsons, member of the board of directors for the commission since 2011, gave $7,900 to Hillary Clinton while she ran in 2008, and contributed again during the 2016 cycle. Interestingly, Parsons was invited to speak at the Clinton Global Initiative in 2007, just one year before his first large donation to Clinton in 2008.

Hillary Clinton, while advocating for U.S.-led strikes against Iranian nuclear facilities in transcripts of paid speeches made behind closed doors, acknowledged Iran’s ability to terrorize the United States through Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) operatives and other proxies in Latin and North America.

She admitted that even without the nuclear program, the presence of Iran, the IRGC, and its proxies, which include the Shiite narco-terrorist group Hezbollah, would still pose a threat to the United States.

President Obama himself and some military officials acknowledged some of the billions of dollars Iran has received as part of the nuclear deal would be used to fund terrorism.

Clinton Campaign Tried to Limit Damage From Classified Info on Email Server

Documents from Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign show researchers justified leaks of top secret data on drone strikes and North Korea’s nuclear program found on her private email server by highlighting similar disclosures.

The documents were among thousands of hacked emails obtained from Podesta’s Gmail account and posted last week on Wikileaks. The U.S. intelligence community has accused Russia of orchestrating the hack in order to influence the U.S. presidential election.

Trump vows to fight for congressional term limits if elected

Donald Trump added a new proposal to his recently unveiled ethics reforms package on Tuesday, promising to pursue a constitutional amendment that would impose term limits on members of Congress should he win the election on Nov. 8.

"If I'm elected president, I will push for a constitutional amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress," the Republican presidential hopeful told supporters at his afternoon rally in Colorado Springs, Colo. "Decades of failure in Washington and decades of special interest dealings must and will come to an end."

Establishing term limits at the federal level would help "break the cycle of corruption" that has plagued Washington and "give new voices to change so that we can have a government that works again and can function properly," Trump argued.

"The time for congressional term limits has finally arrived," he added to applause. "Not only will it end our government corruption but it will end the economic stagnation that we are in right now — no growth."
