Foreign Affairs magazine analyzed Twitter users’ comments and interviewed people who recruit for the militant group also known as ISIS and found they overwhelmingly believe a Trump White House will help their cause.
Christie defended Trump’s statements on immigration and deportation, insisting that the Republican presidential nominee has been consistent in his messaging despite rhetoric that suggests a waffling on his hardline stance.
Simply pointing out the obvious alternatives to demonstrably failed policy does not sound policy make. Whether a President Trump supports Russia in Syria or not, Russia will remain there until its policy objectives—not America’s—are met.
In Hillary Clinton’s powerful speech in Reno Thursday night, she called out the alt-right movement, and its “racist,” “race-baiting,” “anti-Muslim,” “anti-immigrant” and “anti-woman” tenets. The speech was intended to highlight the strong ties between Donald Trump and this group of nationalists, and paint the picture of a bleak future under a Trump presidency.
Bahrain’s 2005 Clinton Global Initiative commitment doesn’t fit any sane definition of “pay to play.” But it does reveal the deception behind those screaming press releases from Judicial Watch, an outfit whose claims deserve to be treated like anthrax by any journalist with integrity.
Bill Clinton was the best president in my life, a bringer of peace and prosperity in the 1990s. Many enjoyed his sunny exuberance, his talents in the same class as Republican Theodore Roosevelt. Now I’m going there, a place that plunges me into angst: Why couldn’t Clinton run for president again and perhaps again?
The alt-right has long cheered Trump, but his ties to the movement intensified with his latest campaign shake-up. Stephen K. Bannon, who led the right-wing website Breitbart News, is now running Trump’s campaign.
In a speech planned for a Thursday campaign stop in Nevada, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton plans to hit Donald Trump on his campaign’s ties to the “alternative right,” or “alt-right,” a specific sect of conservatism in the States associated with racism, sexism, bigotry and nativism.
But take a moment away from pawing through the tens of thousands of her personal and professional emails now on public view and consider the long list of elected and appointed Republicans who have done exactly the same thing as Clinton—and worse.
Clinton isn’t tapping the brakes. She is instead on an extended tour through the nation’s elite enclaves — from Laguna Beach, Calif., to the Hamptons, Martha’s Vineyard to Magic Johnson’s house in Los Angeles — in an unrestrained fundraising blitz that makes even some supporters chafe.
The Washington Post yesterday reported that on three occasions Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin was contacted by donors to the Clinton Foundation asking for favors. The outcome of one was a meeting. The outcome of the others was nothing. That’s it.
With just over two months leading up to the national election, the candidates strategies have diverged dramatically, due largely to the tone each of their campaigns has struck with voters thus far.
The fun began in 1999, when the then-First Lady was contemplating running for the U.S. Senate from New York. She made the mistake of going on the “Today Show” and telling Katie Couric she’d always been a Yankees fan. The host objected.
Clinton’s latest lead represents a stronger level of support than polls indicated over the past few weeks. Earlier in August, she lead over Trump ranged from 3 to 9 percentage points in the poll.
Did Colin Powell suggest that Hillary Clinton should use her private email account as secretary of state—as he had admittedly done in that same job several years earlier?
“As a human being I think the foundation does an enormous amount of good, but from strictly political standpoint…”
It all depends, Stanley Greenberg says, on how Democrats characterize not just Donald Trump, but other Republicans down-ballot. He thinks Democrats need to paint Trump as indicative of the larger problem of extremist Republican politics.
It would take more pages than there are minutes in the day, of course, to document fully the ways Paul Ryan Republicanism—“regular” Republicanism—should not in any way, shape, or form be considered “normal.”
According to a new aggregation of polls by The Huffington Post this week, the GOP will have a difficult time keeping its control of the Senate in the upcoming election cycle. HuffPost’s Senate model shows a 55 percent chance that Senate control will flip to Democrats.
This is hardly the first baseless conspiracy theory to bubble into official Trump Campaign rhetoric. And while Stephen Bannon, the Breitbart executive and current Trump campaign “CEO,” may be encouraging surrogates to turn up their attacks, the real blame lies with Trump confidant and “dirty trickster” Roger Stone.
The Aug. 14-18 survey showed 42 percent of Americans supported Clinton ahead of the Nov. 8 general election. That compares with 34 percent support for Trump. Another 23 percent of likely voters would not pick either candidate.
In a new article published in The New York Times today, the publication reports that Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton stated to investigators that Colin Powell, former Secretary of State, told her to use a personal email account.
“This is a time to stand up and be counted — just like supporters of the civil rights movement once chose to do,” says my newly liberal friend, cut free after an agonizing journey.
The political media thrives on a boiling pot. Clinton’s widening lead in the polls drains some drama from the big story. The political punditry needs to drum up conflict, so why not revisit the alleged schism between Clinton and archliberals?
Regardless their and Scientific American’s steps against the Trump campaign are unusual forays into the political for two prominent science and technology publications. Guns and Ammo and National Geographic have 81 days to let the public know where they stand.
