Clinton Health Questions: Off-Limits Or Legitimate Issue?

Hillary Clinton is 68 years old. She's been diagnosed with cerebral venous thrombosis; head trauma, pregnancy, cancer, brain infection, autoimmune diseases and inborn clotting abnormalities are all predisposing factors, per the Washington Post. She's currently taking blood thinners. Four years ago, Clinton fainted, hit her head and suffered a concussion. But lately many in the media have become outraged that Clinton's health is being broached at all.

Just How Bad Is (Social) Media Bias In This Election?

They take away the hashtag that has negative tweets for Clinton and replace it with something that doesn’t so the average person doesn’t see what was really trending... This happens every day.”

Michael Hudson: Obama Said Hillary Will Continue His Legacy – And Indeed She Will!

Trump is right in saying that there has not really been a recovery for the Rust Belt or for the 99%. Hillary brazens it out by claiming Obama's neoliberal economics have helped wage-earners, despite the debt deflation blocking recovery. She promises to continue his policies (backed by his same campaign funders). That would seem to be a losing strategy for this year's election – unless the Democrats gain control of the electronic voting machines, especially in Ohio.

Democrats Question "Loyalty To US" Of "Treasonous, Traitor" Trump

In a full court propaganda press, enabling by a liberal media that can read polling data as well as anyone else, the 'wild conspiracy theory' that Donald Trump coordinated with Putin to hack and expose DNC emails (that prove the level of rigging and collusion that is too much to bear for many democracy-seeking citizens) has now become confirmed fact... entirely lacking any actual facts. In a desperate bid to regain the narrative, as any convention bounce is erased for Hillary Clinton, her surrogates, as The Hill reports, have now stepped it up, calling Trump "treasonous" and a "traitor," questioning "his loyalty to America."

We're Sorry! - DNC Apologizes To Bernie For "Inexcusable Remarks"

Facing an already rambunctious crowd - chanting 'Bernie' at every mention of Clinton - The DNC has been forced to issue a formal apology to Bernie Sanders (and presumably his supporters).... "the inexcusable remarks... do not reflect the value of the DNC or our steadfast commitment to neutrality during the nominating process."

China Bans Websites From Original Reporting

According to The Paper, major internet portals in China including Sina, Sohu, Netease and Ifeng.com have shut down some of their original reporting operations after receiving “harsh criticism” from country’s top industry regulator. As Bloomberg adds, the Cyberspace Administration of China has cited portals for violating China’s internet regulations by carrying plenty of news content obtained through original reporting.

The Unique Evil Of The Left

Is it too much to say that since the French Revolution, the left has been the source of virtually all political evils, and continues to be so in our day?

Anti-Trump Dissidents Disrupt Convention, Fail To Stop Nomination

In a brief period of excitement (especially for completely unbiased John Harwood), Republican factions trying to stop Donald Trump's nomination noisily disrupted a vote on party convention rules. But, as The Hill reports, the Republican National Committee ignored the outcry from the angry delegates and adopted the convention's rules by a voice vote, rebuffing shouts by those looking to mount a last-ditch effort to sink Donald Trump. FOX reports the Trump camp is said to be "livid" at the revived push.

Nomi Prins: Trump Wins (Even If He Loses)

Early on in his presidential bid, Donald Trump began touting his anti-establishment credentials. When it worked, he ran with it. It was a posture that proved pure gold in the Republican primaries, and was even, in one sense, true. After all, he’d never been part of the political establishment nor held public office, nor had any of his family members or wives. His actual relationship to the establishment is, however, complex in an opportunistic way.
