History Repeats: A Nixonian Cover-Up In Stretch Of The Election


By National Review, Oct 30, 2016 

Richard Nixon’s 1972 campaign for president involved trying to conceal the truth about Watergate until after voters went to the polls. “The early part of the Watergate cover-up was actually successful,” noted a report from the National Constitution Center. Running against a gaffe-ridden, disorganized challenger whom he was able to vastly outspend, Nixon pulled out a victory, but the cover-up unraveled and the country went through two years of turmoil. If Hillary wins, will her cover-up unravel and leave her a weakened president hounded by critics?

Facebook Advertisers Can Exclude Racial Groups In Housing Ads


By USA Today, Oct 30, 2016 

SAN FRANCISCO — Facebook advertisers can exclude specific racial and ethnic groups when placing housing ads in potential violation of federal anti-discrimination housing laws, according to a Pro Publica report.

Using a designation called "Ethnic Affinities," Facebook lets advertisers target and exclude certain groups of Facebook users when placing ads for a new apartment or a house for sale. Pro Publica says it placed an ad for a housing-related event that excluded African Americans, Asian Americans, and Hispanics.

There Is No Particular Risk In Allowing Concealed Carry on Campus


By Washington Post, Oct 27, 2016 

In their Oct. 23 Sunday Opinion essay, “Guns on campus only invite tragedies,” Daniel Webster and Ronald Daniels claimed that letting college students carry guns for protection is a “recipe for tragedy.”

Permit holders commit firearms-related violations at a lower rate than even the very low rate for police officers. The rate is in the thousandths of a percentage point, and data for Michigan, Nevada and Texas show that the rate is just as low for college-age permit holders. But instead of looking at how young permit holders actually behave, Mr. Daniels and Mr. Webster simply point out that “violence, alcohol abuse and reckless behavior are elevated among college-age youths.”

Attorney General Lynch 'Pleads Fifth' on Secret Iran 'Ransom' Payments


By Free Beacon, Oct 28, 2016 

Attorney General Loretta Lynch is declining to comply with an investigation by leading members of Congress about the Obama administration’s secret efforts to send Iran $1.7 billion in cash earlier this year, prompting accusations that Lynch has “pleaded the Fifth” Amendment to avoid incriminating herself over these payments, according to lawmakers and communications exclusively obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) and Rep. Mike Pompeo (R., Kan.) initially presented Lynch in October with a series of questions about how the cash payment to Iran was approved and delivered.

Computer Seized In Weiner Probe Prompts FBI To Take New Steps In Clinton Email Inquiry


By Philly, Oct 28, 2016 

WASHINGTON - Newly discovered emails found on a computer seized during an investigation of disgraced former congressman Anthony Weiner thrust the controversy over Hillary Clinton's use of a private server back into the presidential campaign less than two weeks before the election.

Officials said the discovery prompted a surprise announcement Friday by FBI Director James Comey that the agency would once again be examining emails related to Clinton's time as secretary of state.

Democrats Turn On Comey After He Reopens Clinton Email Wound


By Politico, Oct 28, 2016 

Democrats have soured on James Comey.

In July, they praised the FBI director's decision not to recommend charges against Hillary Clinton over her use of a private email server while serving as secretary of state. But on Friday, top party officials turned on Comey — ripping him not only for taking new steps into an investigation they hoped was over, but also for the way he announced them.

Bill Maher--Who Joked About Palin's Disabled Son, Called Palin a "c--t" and Bachmann "dumb t--t"--Books Obama, Who Is "Offended" By Trump's Vulgarity


By Dealine, Oct 28, 2016 

Maher made the announcement on his show tonight, joking that it only took eight years of trying. Actually, more like one year: Last January, Maher announced on his HBO show that he’d posted a petition at the White House website to convince Obama to appear on the show. Addressing Obama, Maher said at the time, “You’ve done everything but Ultimate Fights and amateur porn,” adding, “If you went any lower you’d be on Fox and Friends.”

The petition quickly garnered the 100,000 signatures needed to secure a White House response, though that response merely said the invitation was under consideration.

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, Oct. 28, 2016 (Gephardt Daily) — Famed attorney Gloria Allred has agreed to represent former Miss Utah Temple Taggart in the case that Donald Trump follows through with his threat to sue all the women who have accused him of non-consensual and inappropriate sexual behavior.

9 ‘Major Scandals’ Obama Forgot to Mention


By Daily Signal, Oct 24, 2016 

President Barack Obama discarded eight years of controversies surrounding his administration, including the targeting of conservative groups, veterans lacking health care, the administration’s response to a terrorist attack weeks before the 2012 election, and a botched gun sting.

During a Democratic fundraising event in San Diego Sunday, Obama attacked Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., the former chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, for the various investigations into the administration.

New Yorker: Comey Defied Lynch In Sending Letter To Congress


By Hot Air, Oct 29, 2016 

Count Loretta Lynch among the Democrats steamed at James Comey yesterday. The New Yorker’s Jane Mayer reported early this morning that the Attorney General had told Comey not to notify Congress of his decision to reopen the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server, telling the FBI director that he should stick to the usual practice of not commenting on ongoing investigations. Mayer’s source? “A well-informed administration official.”

Clearly, there are a few Democrats in the White House cheesed off at Comey now, too:

ABC Tracking Poll "Mysteriously" Shows 10 Point Shift Toward Trump In One Week


By Hot Air, Oct 29, 2016 

I recorded an interview with News Talk 103.7FM in Pennsylvania earlier this week which is airing today and I really wished I’d known about the new ABC tracking poll which just came out when I did it. During the interview I was asked how much faith I was putting in the polls at this late stage of the race and the fact that a few days ago most of them were already refocusing election coverage on what color drapes Hillary Clinton would be installing in the Oval Office. The question seemed designed to see if I would bite on the current conspiracy theories which hold that major polling outlets are stacking the deck with the intent of depressing the turnout of Donald Trump voters.
