Hillary Vows To Stop Importing Dossiers From Russia. WASHINGTON, D.C. —Beloved feminist icon and 2024 presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton has announced she will be joining efforts to halt Russian aggression. Starting this week, she has promised to stop importing dossiers from Russia. "For a long time, I have relied on Russian intelligence as a prime source for phony dirt on my political opponents," said Clinton as she adjusted the scope on her high-powered sniper rifle. "Starting today, I will refuse to import my disinformation or even my hitmen from Russian sources—that is, unless it's absolutely necessary.

" Sources in Russia say this will cost the Russian economy over 3,000 jobs, which were previously filled with people working full-time writing phony dossiers for Hillary Clinton. In a statement, President Putin said he was sad to see his close, longtime relationship with Clinton going south. For the time being, the Clintons have committed to buying their disinformation only from domestic sources like The Washington Post. Dear God, Hillary Clinton. Please, Just Go. After months of staying silent amid an avalanche of attacks by President Trump and his team, Hunter Biden, son of the former vice president, is set to make his first public comments in an interview Tuesday morning just about 12 hours before his father takes the debate stage Tuesday night. For the majority of the Democrats running for president, and even one notable surrogate to Joe Biden himself, there is a sense of confusion as to why Hunter is choosing now to finally speak up about the extent of his business ties in Ukraine and China.

“I wouldn’t have put Hunter on the air,” former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, a top surrogate for Biden, told The Daily Beast. “I think the more you respond, the more you’re playing into Donald Trump.” Rendell, who said was not involved in any discussions about the matter, wondered aloud about the thinking behind it, before doubling down.

“How, when and the substance of this came directly from Hunter,” a source familiar told The Daily Beast. Politics.theonion. How the Russia Spin Got So Much Torque. A new book about Hillary Clinton’s last campaign for president – Shattered, by journalists Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes – has gotten a lot of publicity since it appeared two weeks ago. But major media have ignored a revealing passage near the end of the book. Soon after Clinton’s defeat, top strategists decided where to place the blame. “Within 24 hours of her concession speech,” the authors report, campaign manager Robby Mook and campaign chair John Podesta “assembled her communications team at the Brooklyn headquarters to engineer the case that the election wasn’t entirely on the up-and-up.

For a couple of hours, with Shake Shack containers littering the room, they went over the script they would pitch to the press and the public. Already, Russian hacking was the centerpiece of the argument.” Six months later, that centerpiece of the argument is rampant — with claims often lurching from unsubstantiated overreach to outright demagoguery.

It was a quiet moment after a devastating loss that likely marked the end of her political career.

WikiLeaks' 10 Most Damning Clinton Emails that Prove Mainstream Media is Scripted & Controlled. Washington, D.C. – With information coming out of WikiLeaks at a fast and furious pace, it’s difficult for the average person to keep up with the many bombshell revelations being exposed. This is happening so much that the most damning evidence is ending up as background noise in the 24-hour election news cycle without ever making it into the mainstream news.

On October 7th, 2016, WikiLeaks publish thousands of emails belonging to John Podesta’s private email archives. More emails have been released in the days that followed. Podesta is Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign Chairman. The Podesta emails give insight into why there has been such little fanfare in the mainstream media regarding many of the most damning allegations against Clinton. Essentially, the media has been weaponized as a means of controlling public opinion by propagandizing the American people. Chomsky forwarded the idea of what he called a “propaganda model.” 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Understanding Hillary: The Clinton America sees isn’t the Clinton colleagues know. Why are they so different?

This is not a profile of Hillary Clinton. It is not a review of her career or an assessment of her campaign. You won’t find any shocking revelations on her emails, on Benghazi, on Whitewater, or even on her health care plan. This is an effort to answer a question I’ve been struggling with since at least 2008: Why is the Hillary Clinton described to me by her staff, her colleagues, and even her foes so different from the one I see on the campaign trail?

I’ve come to call it “the Gap.” There is the Hillary Clinton I watch on the nightly news and that I read described in the press. She is careful, calculated, cautious. The Iraq War mars her record, and the private email server and the Goldman Sachs paydays frustrate even her admirers. Clinton rally, Raleigh, North Carolina, June 2016. And then there is the Hillary Clinton described to me by people who have worked with her, people I admire, people who understand Washington in ways I never will.

Trump to be their president – maybe even a majority, according to an analysis from Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight in late July.

Many people – Democrats and Republicans alike – find this shocking. Trump made his name as the “You’re fired” guy. He has never held political office, has arguably failed to generate concrete or realistic policy proposals, regularly changes his positions on issues and consistently gets the facts wrong. This stands in sharp contrast to Hillary Clinton, who has served as secretary of state, senator from New York and first lady of the United States. In his endorsement of her, Barack Obama described Clinton as the most qualified presidential nominee in U.S. history.

How to build trust Research, including new work from our Human Cooperation Laboratory at Yale, suggests Trump may be successful precisely because of his hotheadedness and lack of carefully thought-out proposals.

The Arkansas Years In 1977, after her husband Bill Clinton was elected Arkansas’ attorney general, Hillary Rodham, as she then was known, joined the Rose Law Firm.

She was advised by a top Arkansas lawyer and close friend who also was the primary attorney for Tyson Foods Inc., the biggest poultry company in the country, which benefited from some of Gov.

Hillary Clinton’s 6-point lead over Donald Trump in last month’s CBS News poll has now evaporated. As of mid-July (even before Trump enjoys a predictable post-convention bump in the polls) she is tied with him. Each garners the support of 40 percent of voters. This is astounding, given that Trump’s campaign is in shambles while hers is a well-oiled machine; that he’s done almost no advertising while she began the month spending $500,000 a day on ads; and that Republican leaders are deserting him while Democrats are lining up behind her.

The near tie is particularly astonishing given that Trump has no experience and offers no coherent set of policies or practical ideas but only venomous bigotry and mindless xenophobia, while Hillary Clinton has a boatload of experience, a storehouse of carefully-crafted policies, and a deep understanding of what the nation must do in order to come together and lead the world.

What was Bill Clinton up to with his visit to Loretta Lynch? Three theories to explain his audacious gambit. Now that the FBI has announced that it will not recommend bringing criminal charges against Hillary Clinton for her handling of State Department emails, the mystery of Bill Clinton’s behavior on the campaign trail has only deepened.

Clinton is both a very smart and a very politically savvy man. It follows that one theory regarding why he chose to board Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s plane last week to hold a private meeting with her is completely implausible. That would be the idea that he was merely being thoughtless and naïve, and didn’t realize how terrible the meeting would look, given that it’s Lynch’s job to make the ultimate decision regarding whether to charge his wife over the email imbroglio. Clinton knew exactly what he was doing, and he was well aware that his behavior would set off a firestorm of criticism.

Alex Garland On Saturday, 23-year-old Sarra Tekola was visiting family in Los Angeles. At a restaurant in Watts, Tekola ran into former president Bill Clinton, who was campaigning for his wife. She promptly cursed him out for the 1994 crime bill, which helped establish America's racist mass incarceration system. Tekola was making good on the name of the organization she belongs to: Women of Color Speak Out. Tekola studied climate science at UW and is about to enter a Ph.D. program at Arizona State University. "I would have stayed if I had more time," she said of her moment with Clinton.

Tekola speaks for a generation of young people (among them, the students who launched a sit-in at Seattle University) who believe strongly in anti-racism and don't feel an allegiance to major liberal institutions. Zombie time at campaign Hillary: Camille Paglia on Trump’s real strength and Clinton’s fatal sleepwalking. It’s zombie time at campaign Hillary. Behold the dead men walking! It was with strangely slow, narcotized numbness that the candidate and her phalanx of minions and mouthpieces responded to last week’s punishing report by the State Department’s Inspector General about her email security lapses. Do they truly believe, in the rosy alternate universe of Hillaryland, that they can lie their way out of this?

Of course, they’re relying as usual on the increasingly restive mainstream media to do their dirty work for them. If it were a Republican in the crosshairs, Hillary’s shocking refusal to meet with the Inspector General (who interviewed all four of the other living Secretaries of State of the past two decades) would have been the lead item flagged in screaming headlines from coast to coast.
