Hillary Clinton's allies blocked an amendment to the Democratic Party platform that would have stated formal opposition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership, despite her refusal to back the trade agreement on the campaign trail.
"Hillary is against the TPP. Bernie is against the TPP. Let's not be bureaucrats — let's be leaders," Ben Jealous, a former leader of the NAACP and an ally of Sen. Bernie Sanders, said during a debate over the platform.
That argument failed, sparing President Obama the discomfort of a platform plank that specifically opposes a major item on his agenda. It's a snag in Clinton's efforts to appeal to Sanders' supporters by letting his proposals shape the platform, however, and might undermine her claims to oppose the agreement.
Let us know when you post with facts again....
we must have missed all the others.
I for one would never turn on James Comey.....
he affectively ended Hillary's political aspirations
once and for all, if you cared to listen closely to his entire damning presentation.
BTW when did you become a Megyn Kelly fan Jessica?
There may be hope for you yet. (but probably not)
I don't believe that the cop woke up that morning
with the intention of killing anyone (black or white).
Whatever possessed him into pulling the trigger, hopefully
will be clarified, one way or another after a full investigation.
Maybe it was made to look like a witch hunt after
Obama and Hillary tried to pull the wool over America's
eyes instead of being straightforward from the beginning.
“If someone goes in a building and assassinates five police officers, they are a terrorist by any definition. They are a terrorist, and they are not part of the Black Lives Matter movement. What their motivations were, the criminal justice system and law enforcement will figure that out,” Butterfield said.
Members of the House Select Committee on Benghazi voted to adopt and release the final version of their report Friday amid a battle with the White House over portions that remain classified.
Four of the committee's five Democrats voted against adopting the report, but were overruled by the unanimous vote of the panel's Republican members.
After a draft of the report was made public last week, Democrats attempted to downplay its findings by arguing the two-year probe had highlighted few new facts.
But the report issued a detailed and scathing indictment of the administration's handling of the September 2012 terror attack in Benghazi that claimed four American lives.
26 police killed so far in 2016, up 44% from 2015
The number of police officers shot and killed in the USA is 44% higher than at this time last year following the Dallas ambush Thursday night that left five officers dead, according to data from the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.
The deaths of four Dallas police officers and one Dallas transit officer from sniper fire during a protest in the city Thursday raised the national total of firearm deaths among police to 26. This compares with 18 at this point in time in 2015, said Nick Breul, director of research for the fund in Washington, D.C.
Breul said it was also the latest of 11 ambushes of police officers so far this year across the country, already outpacing the eight ambushes of law enforcement that occurred last year.
A South Carolina man is facing multiple attempted murder charges after he opened fire on a crowd gathering outside a nightclub early Sunday, police said.
Deputies with Spartanburg County said 32-year-old Jody Ray Thompson pulled out an illegally carried firearm during an argument with another man and fired several rounds toward a crowd outside Playoffz nightclub in Lyman, a local NBC News affiliate reported.
“His rounds struck 3 victims, and almost struck a fourth victim, who in self-defense, pulled his own weapon and fired, striking Thompson in the leg,” Lt. Kevin Bobo said.
Lt. Bobo said the man who shot Mr. Thompson, who has not been identified, has a valid concealed weapons permit and will not face any charges.
TR Roosevelt, Abe Lincoln???...You need to know your left from your right before posting in public.
The Republicans have never had an extreme left wing
where you certainly would identify, based on all your historic postings. IMPOSTER!
Comey validated today in Congressional hearings that e-mails on her server were most likely hacked
by foreign governments, but said he couldn't go any further, not wanting to disclose to the hackers exactly
what the FBI knew about them.
How very depressing for you to have to defend Hillary
these days....our sympathies Jessica.
When the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, said on Tuesday that his investigators had no “direct evidence” that Hillary Clinton’s email account had been “successfully hacked,” both private experts and federal investigators immediately understood his meaning: It very likely had been breached, but the intruders were far too skilled to leave evidence of their work.
Mr. Comey described, in fairly blistering terms, a set of email practices that left Mrs. Clinton’s systems wide open to Russian and Chinese hackers, and an array of others. She had no full-time cybersecurity professional monitoring her system. She took her BlackBerry everywhere she went, “sending and receiving work-related emails in the territory of sophisticated adversaries.” Her use of “a personal email domain was both known by a large number of people and readily apparent.”
In the end, the risks created by Mrs. Clinton’s insistence on keeping her communications on a private server may prove to be a larger issue than the relatively small amount of classified information investigators said they found on her system. But the central mystery — who got into the system, if anyone — may never be resolved.
A Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey – taken last night - finds that 37% of Likely U.S. Voters agree with the FBI’s decision. But 54% disagree and believe the FBI should have sought a criminal indictment of Clinton. Ten percent (10%) are undecided.
The same Republican who gave her a "get out of jail free" card.
Educate yourself and read the article from Time Maqgazine
which was quoted here.
You are correct on one account.....yes Hillary is a witch!
At the same time Republicans will celebrate that Comey
exposed Hillary for what she really is...A LYING MORON!
For all the world to wittness....especially the American electorate.
