    C-Span is now actively engaged in political voyeurism for making such statements, or posting it from a third party.

    “Hillary Clinton Rally at the University of North Carolina Some of the audience and their cell phones look strange at this Hillary Clinton rally in Greensboro, NC.”

    Good morning, TOD! Just waking up again; seems I have a lot of catching up to do…

    Love this VoteVets vid; no nonsense, straightforward — Blunt should be very afraid…

    “Jason Kander could have gone anywhere after law school. He chose Afghanistan.
    Roy Blunt lied to his constituents about Vietnam draft deferments and voted against increasing benefits for veterans who actually served.”

    Glad the FBI caught the guy they suspected in the recent bombing cases in NYC/NJ. Sorry he has a Muslim name. Will fuel Trump’s ugly fire. Since President Obama and so many other world leaders are in NYC for UN Assembly, this is a relief. Remains to be seen what the backstory is, as Clinton said.

      My problem with asking Donald J. Trump to reply with his business financial ties is how could we ever believe anything he says? He is a pathological liar. His facts are fashioned to fit his proposed goal. He has crews of lawyers looking for loopholes and ways around things using lawyer language that is not understandable. Once Donald gives his false answer the heat will come off of him and he could get away with it.

      GA Linda, excellent point!

      The only mention I’ve seen today on twitter re: Christie is about what #Bridgegate prosecutors have to say, or about his position as Trump transition chief.

      Have MSM forgotten he’s the frigging GOVERNOR of NJ where most of this activity has taken place??? I’ve seen Governor Cuomo, but no Christie!?!?

      Another yuge MSM and Christie #fail.

    I left all media after this morning’s post and come back to find the world has turned again. First, so glad to see that Dudette checked in is on the road to recovery and is up to celebrating her birthday (Hi, precious one).
    The bomber has been captured (alive, so we know that this IS possible, but not if you are a Black child or adult).
    The Secret Service is locked, loaded, and armed to here and beyond like they are ready for war to protect, POTUS and FLOTUS while they are in New York (that photo that they released is badass).
    Hillary is hitting all of the right notes (she will make a very good president; living in hope that she will have the chance beginning 1/20/2017.
    Not bad for a Monday.

    “MANHATTAN — Leave the bomb, take the bag. In two separate cases, thieves snatching bags from city streets and train stations inadvertently helped law enforcement get the upper hand in an ongoing bomb spree that’s hurt dozens of people and spans both sides of the Hudson River, sources said. The day Ahmad Khan Rahami allegedly planted two bombs in Chelsea — one of which detonated on West 23rd Street — two thieves accidentally helped to disable his second pressure cooker bomb left inside a rolling suitcase on West 27th Street, sources said. The young men, who sources described as being well-dressed, opened the bag and took the bomb out, sources said, before placing the explosive into a garbage bag and walking away with the rolling suitcase. In doing so, investigators believe they inadvertently disabled the explosive, sources said. That allowed investigators to examine the cellphone attached to the bomb intact and discover that it was connected to the family of Rahami….

    …”Who in this world finds a pressure cooker with a phone and just takes the bag?” a law enforcement source said. The two men are not believed to be involved in the terror plot, but investigators still want to speak to them. Then, on Sunday night, two would-be thieves snatched a backpack resting atop a trash can near a train station in Elizabeth, N.J., according to reports. They started rooting through the bag and found five explosives that officials say are tied to Rahami, prompting them to immediately drop the bag in the middle of the street and call police, according to reports and the New Jersey State Police….continued”

    I long for the day when I can turn on my computer without having DT’s bloated face, his words or his actions showing up first thing. The best revenge on this carnival barker and those who enabled him is to send them into obscurity never to be heard from again. He and his band of deplorables are all about being seen and being made to feel important. My hope and prayer is that there will be a mighty rising on 11/8/2016 that will show them that they are not. It would also be nice to see real men (like PBO) who are not afraid of name-calling, in the media and in politicis, who will stand up and do their real jobs.

    • September 19, 2016 at 4:42 pm

      My thoughts exactly CEB! I can’t stand seeing DT’s bloated face and everything he does being the first and last thing you see in the media. It’s becoming too much. Even MSNBC can’t help themselves, they show DT’s every move, every tweet, every speech. I’m watching a lot of House Hunters and Beachfront Properties!

      It is amazing that with a city of millions people in New York and New Jersey that law enforcement were able to find the people that did the bombing.

        They were able to identify perp so quickly because pretty much all of MANHATTAN and relates areas are under 24 hour surveillance. They also use highly sophisticated facial recognition software. But they knew who he was well before the media knew they knew.

          Well I already posted why I feel this is like Sept 2012 when they tried to use a terrorist attack to elect Romney. Now the GOP is doing it again. TRUMP proved through a tweet he knew about the attacks in advance. There were no deaths which suggest the goal was to generate fear among whites to garner a larger share of white votes to get Trump in WH

    • September 19, 2016 at 2:50 pm

      I’m not picking on Andrea Mitchell at random. It’s just that she keep forcing the question each time she appears in MSNBC or NBC News. This week, when Donald Trump and his surrogates began floating the desperate and thoroughly evidence-free suggestion that Hillary Clinton’s health might somehow be a problem, even the most controversy-loving cable news pundits all shot it down. Except for Mitchell, who decided to go ahead and speculate that Hillary might indeed have some unspecified health issue, while not bothering to back it up with anything. And this is pretty much all she ever does.

      Yes, I had serious conversations with my cousins in rural Georgia about everyone voting. And since they were for Hillary against Barack, this should be a slam dunk for them…at least…I think so.

      I have tried using my grassroots perspective to explain to people what seems to be going on in Ohio;

      but many do not seem to be ready to listen to alternatives to the media narrative;

      … so I have decided on just putting my head down and continuing to organize.

      Both sides – the media ALWAYS has to say both sides. They might as well just endorse the republican because regardless of how revolting, how bad, how incompetent and how much of a disaster for the country, the US media thinks the GOP has the right to rule.
