The highly-anticipated first presidential debate of 2016 is finally upon us and here are all the things that you need to know but are likely too lazy or simply not interested enough to track down on your own
Are you ready for the most anticipated presidential debate in decades? There will likely be quite a few questions about the economy, and without a doubt this is an area where Trump and Clinton have some very sharp differences. The mainstream media would have us believe that the U.S. economy is in pretty good shape, and if that was true that would seem to favor Clinton. But is it actually true?
Citi said that its "base case is for a Clinton victory and mostly continuity in policies, which would leave U.S. and global growth expectations relatively unchanged,” while describing the U.S. contest as “increasingly bizarre.” Bizarre or not, earlier this morning Morgan Stanley, whose base case is still a Clinton victory has presented several "contingency planning" scenarios in case Trump does win.
When Dr. Lisa Bardack was asked to become Hillary Clinton’s personal physician in 2001, it had to have been a crowning moment in the career of the Mt. Kisco internist. Dr. Bardack could have anticipated little downside... Unfortunately, Hillary Clinton corrupts everyone who serves her.
In 2015, President Obama told CNN that 99.9 Percent of Muslims Reject Radical Islam. He made the comments in response to a question about the White House avoiding using the phrase “Islamic terrorists.” Hillary Clinton says “Let’s be clear: Islam is not our adversary.

According to the latest WaPo/ABC News poll, Hillary and Trump are set to meet for their first debate "in a virtual dead heat in the race for the White House."

Two short weeks ago, we exposed the gaping difference between Amazon reader reviews of Hillary Clinton's "Stronger Together" book (14% 5-Stars) and Donald Trump's "Great Again" book (74% 5-Stars) as The New York Times describedClinton's propaganda as a "flop." So, as with everything else in this 'new normal rigged' world, something had to be done and WaPo-owner Jeff Bezos' Amazon reviews appear to have been 'tweaked' - more than doubling Hillary's top reviews.
"How is this not classified?" Clinton aide Huma Abedin exclaimed once informed that the sender of an email to Hillary Clinton was believed to be pseudonym used by the president,.

American University Professor, Allan Lichtman, studied every election cycle from 1860 through 1980 to develop a system that has accurately predicted every U.S. presidential election since 1984. Here's why he's now calling the 2016 race for Trump.
It has been a day of Friday afternoon surprises: just one hour after Ted Cruz pretended to endorse Donald Trump when he really meant don't vote for Hillary, president Obama denied what all American citizens demanded - and got - after both chambers unanimously passed the Sept 11 law several weeks ago, when he decided to veto the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act bill.
"Our country is in crisis. Hillary Clinton is manifestly unfit to be president, and her policies would harm millions of Americans. And Donald Trump is the only thing standing in her way. A year ago, I pledged to endorse the Republican nominee, and I am honoring that commitment. And if you don’t want to see a Hillary Clinton presidency, I encourage you to vote for him" - Ted Cruz
While Goldman is best known for creating the revolving door, where it either soaks up SEC "regulators", spawns central bankers and/or Treasury Secretaries like Hank Paulson, a new function was revealed today: providing sabbaticals for the spouses of presidential candidates.
