Obama announces another special amnesty for hurricane victims

Judicial WatchNever missing an opportunity to offer illegal immigrants reprieve, the Obama administration has repeatedly used inclement weather, a virus, natural disasters and tainted water in a U.S. city to extend the perk in the last few years. This month the administration announced yet another special amnesty for victims of Hurricane Matthew.

This is complete bullshit. Just another excuse to let in more illegal Democrat voters.

Violent anti-Trump protests were orchestrated by activist on Hillary's payroll

Daily CallerAn activist who bragged about disrupting multiple Donald Trump campaign events in a recent Project Veritas video was on Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign payroll, a search of Federal Election Commission (FEC) records reveals.

“So, [Aaron Black] and I did the Chicago Trump event where we shut down like all the yeah,” Rodriguez says in the video. Rodriguez also takes credit for an Arizona protest, also in March, that shut down a major highway outside a Trump event.

Notably, a search of FEC records reveals that Rodriguez was paid by the Clinton campaign shortly before she disrupted the Chicago rally. The campaign paid her $1,610.34 as a “payroll” expense, and also gave her a $30 payment that is described only as “phone.”

The Clinton campaign had an activist who orchestrated violent shutdowns of at least two Trump events on payroll.

More on the FBI quid pro quo

PowerLineWe have here a clear pattern of corruption that makes Watergate look like child’s play. Hillary’s aide, Patrick Kennedy, tried to bribe the FBI to change the classification of a Benghazi document so as to enable Hillary’s false claim that she didn’t send or receive classified information on her illegal home server. The FBI, to its credit, refused. (James Comey wasn’t involved at that stage.)

Hillary’s aide then asked whether the FBI would be saying anything publicly about the classification issue. Once assured that the FBI would be silent, Hillary took the stage and alleged publicly, and falsely, that she never used her illegal home server to send or receive classified information. One wonders, too, how many critically important documents have been “archive[d] … in the basement of DoS [the State Department] never to be seen again,” based on bogus FOIA exemptions.

Hillary's stellar record of honesty shines through. As long as she knows the FBI won't comment publicly to contradict her, she's willing to lie through her teeth to the whole country.

Wikileaks internet access cut off to protect Hillary

McClatchyDCWikileaks said Tuesday that Secretary of State John Kerry asked Ecuador to stop WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, from publishing leaked emails that could disrupt peace negotiations with a guerrilla group in Colombia.

Assange, who has been in refuge in Ecuador’s embassy in London for more than four years, saw his access to the internet cut over the weekend.

The "peace negotiations" are the excuse. The election is the reason. Those emails would damage Clinton's chances.

A professional desperately in need of a mirror

The Washington Post writes at length about how the press are being booed at Trump rallies and they are starting to feel threatened. I wonder how they think the people they character-assassinate for asking debate questions feel? Or the gun owners whose property they want to confiscate? And the WaPo story goes on to claim that journalists aren't part of some conspiracy like Trump has described. What about the journalists who donated to Hillary at a 96% rate, compared to 4% for Trump? The journalists who fed Hillary debate questions? The journalists who cleared stories with Clinton campaign operatives? The journalists who ignore stories with hard evidence proving Clinton's criminal corruption and carelessness while frantically reporting on Trump's 11-year-old locker room braggadocio?

Clinton campaign denies rigging the system

The Hill"That is what losers do. We're not even going to give it any credit by amplifying it. It's not true. The system is not rigged. This is probably going to be the easiest, most accessible election in our history."

When you are reduced to denying that the system is rigged, despite the clear evidence showing that you rigged the system, it's like denying that you are a crook when you are clearly a crook.

Did Hillary provide classified documents to Blumenthal -- and his hackers?

Commentary Magazine"The search uncovered hundreds of files that the witness believed to be from Sidney Blumenthal’s server on a server in Romania,” reported LawNewz’s Chris White, citing FBI documents. “These files included Microsoft Word, Excel, and other documents, but no emails. Blumenthal’s email account was breached by the Romanian hacker Guccifer.”

According to the source who spoke with the FBI, the documents housed on a foreign server contained one “sensitive” file listing the names of potentially active Islamist insurgents in Libya. The FBI’s source said the document did not originate with Blumenthal’s end and “contained a reference to an IP address range that included the IP address of Clinton’s server.”

We know Blumenthal was hacked. We know he corresponded with Hillary. We know he wasn't trusted by the Obama administration and wasn't supposed to have classified information... even though he did. And now, we know that at least one classified document was found on Blumenthal's server, apparently from an IP associated with Clinton's server.

Was he receiving classified documents from Hillary or her aides?

Did the person who hacked Blumenthal use his access to Hillary's server to hack her server too?

Court orders IRS to proceed on remaining Tea Party applications within 30 days

American Center for Law and JusticeThree years after we filed a lawsuit on their behalf, and for some, nearly seven years after they submitted their applications for tax-exempt status, the grassroots conservative groups that were targeted by the IRS for their political views are finally receiving some of the relief to which they have long been entitled—determinations on those applications.

Of course, it doesn't matter now; the Tea Party has faded into irrelevancy, a successful political hit job.

Hillary's contempt for secret service agents protecting her

Patterico quoting FBI document dumpHillary Clinton was so abusive toward her diplomatic security staff that many quit or sought reassignment during her tenure as secretary of state, a former agent told FBI investigators, according to documents released Monday.

Clinton’s treatment of the diplomatic security agents assigned to protect her “was so contemptuous that many of them sought reassignment or employment elsewhere,” according to an FBI summary of its interview with the unnamed former security official.

And that's not all:

HeatStThe former security official also described the feelings of resentment agents felt toward Clinton, who would routinely violate the security protocols and regulations the agents themselves were required to follow.

She would routinely violate the security protocols and regulations. Why, that's exactly what the FBI was investigating her for! And yet no charges?

About that media bias that doesn't exist...

Instapundit quoting Washington ExaminerOf the 430 people CPI identified as “journalists, reporters, news editors or television news anchors ­— as well as other donors known to be working in journalism,” 96 percent gave money to Clinton, according to federal campaign finance filings. Those 430 journalists gave $382,000 to Clinton and just $14,000 to GOP nominee Donald Trump. CPI identified just 50 journalists who gave to Trump (meaning 380 gave to Clinton.)

I'm sure that 96%-4% ratio results in perfectly balanced coverage.

Supporting the second amendment, but...

I recently found myself going through a sample ballot with survey answers that happened to include a question on gun control. The answers from the two candidates running were very illuminating:

Tony DaleI believe that the 2nd Amendment is an individual right and the right to defend oneself is fundamental. The majority of the shooting fatalities in the US are due to suicide. I have a track record of supporting funding for mental health and am committed to ensuring access for our veterans.

OK, that's a simple and straightfoward statement in support of the 2nd Amendment and gun rights, with a nod towards mental health funding emphasizing veterans. If I was a veteran I might be a little offended by the implication that veterans are nuts who need mental health treatment in case they shoot people, but generally, it's a good answer.

Paul R GordonI support the second amendment and responsible gun ownership. I support laws that track large-scale ammunition purchases, ban assault weapons, ban large capacity magazines, and require background and mental health checks of commercial gun sales no matter where sold. I support repeal of campus carry.

In other words, Paul supports the 2nd Amendment... and every single gun control proposal out there, including gun bans. "I support the 2nd Amendment" is truly a meaningless phrase in his mouth. I'm surprised he even bothered, but it is Texas, after all.

Vote fraud in the Florida spanish-speaking community

DaTechGuyStep 1: Go door to door in the spanish community for the purpose of getting signatures on a form pledging the non english reading voters for Hillary Clinton with the name and address and an authentic signature

Step 2: Submit absentee ballots in the name of the above person for Hillary Clinton.

Read the whole thing for the story of how that form was delivered and misrepresented.

Huma says Hillary is still not right in the head... in 2015

Instapundit quoting New York PostTop aide Huma Abedin warned the Clinton campaign team in a 2015 e-mail that Hillary was “still not perfect in her head” and would have to “stick to notes” during an event.

Still not perfect in her head, but fit to serve in the highest office our nation has? An office where lives depend on making good decisions quickly under stress?

Let's face it. Even if you're a fan of Hillary pre-collapse, pre-concussion, pre-Parkinsons, pre-stroke... at this point if you vote for her you're voting for a puppet run by her "body people" who can just about hold it together well enough to recite her lines from written notes.

As Glenn puts it, this woman is who we want standing up to Putin?

Texas voting machines rigged?

ZeroHedgeThe following report also surfaced in Arlington, Texas from a person who voted a straight republican tickets only to find just before submitting her ballot that her presidential choice had been switched to Clinton/Kaine. After reporting the error to polling officials, the voter was told that these errors "had been happening."

I could believe an occasional calibration error on a touchscreen device that misregistered a press. Or, to be honest, user error in that situation.

But voting "straight ticket Republican" and having your vote display for Hillary? I don't see how that can be a simple calibration error. It might be a configuration error of a different type, I suppose -- malicious or not -- but it seems like it would be something that should absolutely be checked during testing of the configuration and, if it leaked into the actual election, be corrected immediately.

Note that it has, in fact, leaked into the actual election (early voting). So I'll be keeping an eye out for any reports of an explanation and correction. Or, I suppose, conviction.

In the meantime, Texas voters should carefully check their ballots and insist on any errors being corrected.

UPDATE: Dallas News says no official complaints lodged.

The described problems don't sound like user error or calibration problems to me, but without more details, the only thing that can be done is double-check your ballot.

Violence in politics

ObserverCreamer resigned as an official consultant because Part One and Part Two exposed him. His operation, however, remains active and continues to do damage. The election rigging scheme he commanded relies on street thuggery. That means physical fear—terror—is a core component of Americans United for Change’s crooked enterprise. Street thuggery is very low-level terrorism, but it is a type of terrorism nonetheless and it is wrong to call it otherwise. Hardboy muscle, bottles and two by fours are street thuggery’s kinetics. Bottles and baseball bats are not Al Qaeda’s high explosives—but they incite fear and when they crack heads they cause casualties. People bleed. Street thuggery as an arm of politics is violent, criminalized politics on an ugly downward slope to much worse, the worse including lynchings and pogroms. If you don’t think street thuggery is terror then consider Kristalnacht.

Creamer and his despicable compadres haven’t killed anyone, not yet. But this year Creamer and his operatives have used the terror of actual physical attack and a supporting suite of provocation tactics (threat tactics) to successfully shatter several lawful political rallies held by Republican candidates. Creamer’s media component insures that the violence committed by Creamer thugs and the violence they provoked generates sensational violent imagery and sensational reports of violence for dissemination by other media. The result is sensational propaganda benefiting the Democratic Party and its fawning media. See those Republicans? See the violence??!!

And Robert Creamer has visited the White House 340 times, 45 of those visits including a meeting with Obama.

And remember, Creamer is not just a convicted felon and thuggish political operative. The felonies he was convicted of included millions of dollars in bank fraud.

Obama knew about Hillary's private email server...

And when Hillary's team found out that Obama had claimed he "heard about it on the news", they decided to "clean it up"... with BleachBit. Implicated: Cheryl Mills, John Podesta.

Remember when it wasn't the crime but the cover up that mattered?

Judicial Watch publishes Hillary's email interrogatory responses

The responses are here. There are a number of general objections, most notably one that seeks to narrow the scope of the questions to (one of several of Hillary's email addresses on her server) rather than focusing on the whole server or even all of Hillary's addresses on that server. That particular evasion seems to be the one with the broadest potential for abuse. There are also broad objections based on various forms of privilege, including attorney-client and immunity.

I'm going to pull a few noteworthy examples out of the response below the fold.

Clinton-tied politician donated $675K to campaign of FBI official's wife at start of email investigation

Instapundit quoting Wall Street JournalThe political organization of Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, an influential Democrat with longstanding ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton, gave nearly $500,000 to the election campaign of the wife of an official at the Federal Bureau of Investigation who later helped oversee the investigation into Mrs. Clinton’s email use.

Campaign finance records show Mr. McAuliffe’s political-action committee donated $467,500 to the 2015 state Senate campaign of Dr. Jill McCabe, who is married to Andrew McCabe, now the deputy director of the FBI.

The Virginia Democratic Party, over which Mr. McAuliffe exerts considerable control, donated an additional $207,788 worth of support to Dr. McCabe’s campaign in the form of mailers, according to the records. That adds up to slightly more than $675,000 to her candidacy from entities either directly under Mr. McAuliffe’s control or strongly influenced by him. The figure represents more than a third of all the campaign funds Dr. McCabe raised in the effort.

Glenn also calls out the interesting timing of the bribe.... excuse me, donation.

The term of this is obstruction of justice. Official corruption.

About the election that isn't rigged...

PattericoCritics will argue that even if Trump fans are goaded into committing violence, they are legally and morally responsible if they start the violence. Even if that’s true, the protestors are, by the operatives’ own admission, going to the events for the express purpose of getting Trumpers to start violence...

Furthermore, the operatives are promoting the protests as spontaneous and unconnected with the DNC, and they are neither. They are scripted and absolutely directed by Hillary’s and the DNC’s henchmen.

Note well: these folks concede in the video that Hillary was aware of the work they do. And they don’t seem to think they are operating legally or morally; indeed, Foval discounts the idea of following what the “legal and ethics people say” — saying that “we need to win this motherf**ker.”

The Democrats are the party of dirty tricks. It's long past time the Republicans learned to ignore them and vote anyway.
