ABC: How Trump's Remarks About Clinton Email Probe Mirror Birtherism:
During a campaign rally in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Monday, Donald Trump said he was "sure" that what's contained in the emails at the center of the FBI's renewed probe into Hillary Clinton's use of a private server is "absolutely devastating."

Those emails are under review by the FBI, and their content has not been released publicly, but Trump appears certain in his pronouncement despite a lack of evidence.

His trading on uncertainty without proof may seem familiar: His talk of the renewed probe mirrors his years-long perpetuation of the birther movement.
The comparison, as they say, is at the link.

Whoa... :shock: a long'ish read but this explains so much about the ugliness coming out of the NY FBI office & its incestuous dynamic. It also provides a good idea why Trump isn't investigated as vigorously (if at all) by the FBI.

Further down in that collection of Beast articles is one by a Middle Eastern comic, Nemr. He wrote:
When Donald Trump controversially confirmed his bid for the presidency, I knew he had a real shot at being the next president. I was in Los Angeles and everyone thought I was mad. “Trump?! No way!” But what nobody picked up on is we no longer live in an America where people look up to anyone; we look down—at our phones, and our selfies, staring back at us.

In the Middle East we have no one to choose from; in America, we’ve chosen no one.
There are a few Americans to whom I do look up. The Obamas are in my list. Joe Biden is. At one time John McCain was. Hillary is in many ways; Bill, very much less so. Many TFB people are recipients of my semi-anonymous admiration. But I keep asking my question: who is up and coming in the Democratic Party? I see the bench as very thin. To whom will we look up in 2024?

I want to see more of Jason Kandar. Of course, he has to defeat GOP Senator Blunt first. I was very impressed by his background and the tone he used in his now famous ad. I have watched it many times and recommended to other people who were also impressed. I was listening to NPR this afternoon and they were talking about how the ad came about. He got it in the first take. He's a natural.

New York Times November 3, 2016 Donald Trump’s Income Isn’t Always What He Says It Is, Records Suggest
On the financial disclosure forms that Donald J. Trump has pointed to as proof of his tremendous success, no venture looks more gold-plated than his golf resort in Doral, Fla., where he reported revenues of $50 million in 2014. That figure accounted for the biggest share of what he described as his income for the year.

But this summer, a considerably different picture emerged in an austere government hearing room in Miami, where Mr. Trump’s company was challenging the resort’s property tax bill.

Mr. Trump’s lawyer handed the magistrate an income and expense statement showing that the gross revenue had indeed been $50 million. But after paying operating costs, the resort had actually lost $2.4 million.

Mr. Trump has repeatedly held out his financial disclosures as a justification for breaking with tradition and refusing to release his personal tax returns. “You don’t learn that much from tax returns,” he said in September during his first debate with Hillary Clinton. “You learn a lot from financial disclosure. And you should go down and take a look at that.”

But an examination of his tax appeals on several properties, and other documents obtained by The New York Times through Freedom of Information requests, shows that what Mr. Trump has reported on those forms is nowhere near a complete picture of his financial state.

From the article:

"The Obama administration threw Donald Trump a regulatory curve ball as he makes his final pitch to working-class voters.

The NLRB's decision orders Trump Ruffin Commercial LLC to recognize and bargain with the workers, who are represented by Nevada's powerful Culinary Workers Union Local 226, an affiliate of UNITE HERE. The NLRB also ordered the company, owned by Trump and casino owner Phillip Ruffin, to post notices to hotel employees about the violation.
"Mr. Trump is breaking federal law and Trump Hotel Las Vegas is operating illegally," said Culinary Union Secretary-Treasurer Geoconda Arguello-Kline. "Mr. Trump should accept the federal government’s order to negotiate and treat his workers with respect.”"

Of those you mention all are awesome but Elizabeth Warren and Sherrod Brown, as much as I love them, are too old to be leaders for the future. Both are in their 60s. Not that there is anything wrong with great people in their 60s, but if we're looking for someone for 2020 nd 2024, not them.

Trump transition team pulls out the stops
Emboldened by the polls, GOP policy wonks finish plans to dismantle Barack Obama's legacy.
By ANDREW RESTUCCIA and NANCY COOK 11/03/16 05:27 AM EDT

Donald Trump’s presidential transition team has kicked into higher gear as the race for the White House tightens, with a team of conservative Washington policy wonks fleshing out plans to dismantle President Barack Obama’s legacy.

What once seemed like a futile exercise in preparing for a government that might never be is suddenly becoming very real for the 100-plus Republicans on Trump’s transition team. The group — made up of an unlikely hodgepodge of conservative think-tank fellows, former Mitt Romney advisers and die-hard Trump supporters — has been working at a frenzied pace to put the finishing touches on a road map for the nominee’s first 100 days.
http://www.politico.com/story/2016/11/t ... ops-230666
Several sources said the team has focused heavily on how a President Trump might use executive authority, both as a way to quickly put his stamp on the federal government, as well as to undo hundreds of Obama’s regulations on energy, taxes and health care.

“That’s been a big focus of their effort, so they’re in a position on Day One to repeal things and replace things with the stroke of a pen,” said one person close to the transition team.

Those close to the transition team said they expect a President Trump to concentrate on immigration and repealing Obamacare as key issues to tackle early. The group has also prepared detailed agency-by-agency guides for a potential Trump administration that include recommendations on personnel, new regulations and executive orders.

I wonder how much the Trump team is preparing for the international backlash on January 21, 2017, when Russia finally annects the eastern section of the Ukraine and China finally clamps down on the South China Sea as its possession.

Just watched The Sociopath. Gives a history of the rise of the Tea Party & exploiting it for his own gain. Lots of Never Trump conservative commentary that points out his vile rhetoric. Unfortunately (as usual) none mention their own contributions as conservative media, pundits, etc. for failing to rebuke the precursor to Trump rhetoric, the Tea Party or GOP leaders.

If you have an extra 45 minutes to spare it's still worth watching.

There is one aspect of the Jane Doe rape story that rings true to me. The claim is that a "Tiffany Doe" was a party planner who was charged with finding adolescent girls to bring to the pedophile Epstein's house and that she recruited Jane Doe at the Port Authority Bus Terminal. At that time that is exactly where this would have been done in midtown Manhattan.

Casting notice goes out for new 'up-and-coming' conservative news network


The notice goes on to say the on-air talent the network wants "must be knowledgeable about conservative viewpoints, current events and the presidential election," adding applicants must also "look upscale and intelligent," and should be "outspoken and energetic."

Auditions are being held at an undisclosed New York City studio on Nov. 7, the eve of Election Day.

While the casting call doesn't identify any specific employer, it does suggest initial programming will be streamed on the internet, infrastructure the Trump campaign has already set up through its Facebook live feed where aides have been broadcasting events and counter news programming.

Just a thought á propos nothing:
I think he's going to fade away, fast-like, from the political arena after he (hopefully) looses the election.
He is not a 'political' person, he doesn't give a sh*t about politics, he knows next to absolutely nothing about politics,
he has no desire whatsoever to work ( as in; WORK ) for political changes.
I really do not think he has a political 'agenda' AT ALL... his masters at DeadBreibart certainly have , but not him.
Look at the way he's changed just about every single 'political' position he had just a couple of years back,
simply to please the crowds of idiots he depends on to get attention.
He's in this as a way of feeding his deranged narcissistic hunger .. nothing else.
He'll night-fart-twitter for a while , and then fade away . He does not run a 'movement', he wouldn't know how to, he's too lazy and
he will never again travel around a scream nonsense to 'big' crowds.

.. and hopefully he'll go broke and end his days in poverty

India:Hindu-nationalist group celebrate Trump election "victory"

NEW DELHI The Hindu Sena group on Friday celebrated the "victory" of U.S. presidential contender Donald Trump, hailing his friendship with diaspora Indians and backing his call to ban immigration by Muslims from countries hit by Islamic militancy. With drums banging and speakers blaring, the Hindu Sena, or Hindu Army, gathered at Jantar Mantar to proclaim to a knot of TV crew."Trump's victory is confirmed early, due to his thoughts against Islamic terrorism and love for India and Hindus,"

I guess his polling firm wasn't doing a good enough job, so he's refusing to pay them 3/4 of a million bucks. His campaign just says that there are "internal issues" The polling firm better get its lawsuit in fast, as there will be a long line off people screaming for their money in a few weeks, win or lose.
