Donald Trump Calls Hillary Clinton “Trigger Happy” as She Courts Neocons



Donald Trump derided Hillary Clinton’s hawkish foreign policy record over the weekend, a glimpse into a potential general election strategy of casting Clinton as the more likely of the two to take the nation to war.

Just moments after maligning Syrian refugees at a rally in Lynden, Washington, Trump pivoted into a tirade against Clinton as a warmonger.

“On foreign policy, Hillary is trigger happy,” Trump told the crowd. “She is, she’s trigger happy. She’s got a bad temperament,” he said. “Her decisions in Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Libya have cost trillions of dollars, thousands of lives and have totally unleashed ISIS.”

And he expressed a rarely heard appreciation for the “other side to this story,” noting: “Thousands of lives yes, for us, but probably millions of lives in all fairness, folks” for the people of the Middle East.

Trump implied that casualties inflicted by the U.S. military were far higher than reported. “They bomb a city” and “it’s obliterated, obliterated,” he said. “They’ll say nobody was killed. I’ll bet you thousands and thousands of people were killed every time you see that television set.”

“If we would’ve done nothing,” Trump argued, “we would’ve been in much better shape.”

Cleveland isn't the hot spot it once was.

For many prominent Republicans, a contested GOP national convention was the last hope for a nominee other than Donald Trump, and they were maneuvering to have a front-row seat to the gamesmanship.

But with Trump now the presumptive nominee, a number of would-be delegates are quietly giving up their tickets to Ohio.

Art Pope, a conservative donor and former backer of Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, decided not to pursue a delegate spot after Trump won.

"This morning, I withdrew my name from the nominating slate for the North Carolina Republican State Convention," Pope, a former state official, told CNN the day after Trump won Indiana. "At this point in time I do not plan to actively support Donald Trump, that's why I'm not going to the Republican National Convention."

The dropouts come as the GOP is split over having Trump as its standard-bearer, with some Republicans questioning his temperament, conservative credentials and ability to defeat Hillary Clinton in November.

Filipinos love an action man, not just in the movies but in politics too. And you can't get more of an action man than politician Rodrigo Duterte.

His hometown, Davao City, was once a violent no-go area overrun by criminals. But he turned it around when he became mayor, wielding brutal tactics including, allegedly, death squads.

Now the hard man of city hall wants to take on the presidency and despite - or maybe because of - his fearsome approach, this outspoken statesman has a real chance of winning the top seat.

101 East joins him on the road as he campaigns for the Philippines' presidency.

Andrew Williams doesn’t think violent threats are the right way to persuade Washington’s Democratic superdelegates to back Bernie Sanders for president.

The Gig Harbor attorney wants to sway those high-ranking elected officials by threatening something else: Their re-election campaigns.

It’s the latest way Sanders’ supporters in Washington are looking to pressure the state’s superdelegates — who include Gov. Jay Inslee and the state’s congressional delegation — to support Sanders over Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination.

This makes Washington the second state I know of working to change the superdelegates system for later contest. Have other states done anything as well?

*Also first post so if there are any mistakes let me know and I'll fix them.
Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., called on an audience of business and political elites earlier this week to respond to populist anger by lobbying harder for a deficit-reduction package that would reduce corporate tax rates and cut public retirement programs such as Social Security.

Although a dominant populist sentiment is that the system is already rigged in favor of the rich, Warner suggested that the “business community” needs to get more involved in politics or face unpleasant repercussions.

“If you don’t think the frustration of Americans with our overall system, — not just our political system, but our business system, our tax code — is at the boiling point, then Katy bar the door!,” he said. “The walls that are gonna have to be built, may not be at borders, they may be around neighborhoods the way they are in many Third World countries around the world,” Warner warned.

That's the Dem Party some people are so ride or die for... often just as fucked up as the Republicans but with much better P.R.

She’d be a status-quo president at a time when both left and right are desperate for change.

Hillary Clinton’s all-but-insurmountable delegate lead in the Democratic race, and her strong numbers against any probable Republican opponent in the fall, now pose a paradox: She might win the presidency but lose the country.

The reason is that Clinton lacks a big, new animating idea in a year when voters in both parties are so discontented they have embraced some pretty bad ones. Like them or loathe them, Donald Trump's and Bernie Sanders’ messages are crystal clear and call for dramatic change, while Clinton’s remains spread softly all over the map. And her agenda promises less change than continuation—of the centrist Democratic Party policies that her husband pursued and which Barack Obama has largely followed. It’s no surprise that one of Clinton’s biggest campaign themes is to praise both her predecessor Democratic presidents—the one she married and the one she went to work for—effusively.

In her New York primary victory speech recently, Clinton delivered a laundry list worthy of a State of the Union address, declaring her support for “civil rights, voting rights, workers’ rights, women’s rights, LGBT rights, and rights for people with disabilities,” and pledging to fight for “places that have been left out and left behind, from inner cities to coal country to Indian country.”

The twist is that Clinton almost certainly has the best chance in the field to deliver such a speech as president, yet she might still face a hellish four or eight years in office without a crisper organizing theme that pledges fundamental change, because so many voters in the opposition party—and her own—will be nursing bitter disappointments from Day One. She’s already in danger of pre-alienating the Democratic base, with many Sanders supporters vowing never to support her.

I think this article plays it safe but it touches the surface of what I think will happen if/when Hillary is elected tbqh.
Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign is dismissing claims from a Romanian hacker known as “Guccifer” that he managed to gain access to the private server where Clinton stored her emails while secretary of state.

Hacker Marcel Lehel Lazar, who was extradited to the U.S. in March to face computer crime charges, told NBC News and Fox News in jailhouse interviews that he looked at information on Clinton’s server after obtaining details about the set-up from emails Clinton exchanged with Clinton outside adviser Sidney Blumenthal. The interview is set to air Sunday.

“It was like an open orchid on the Internet,” Lazar told NBC, claiming there were “hundreds of folders.”

“For me, it was easy. It was easy for me, for everybody” to get into the system, he told Fox.

Lazar told Fox he only looked at that server roughly twice because it was not interesting to him. “I was not paying attention. For me, it was not like the Hillary Clinton server, it was like an email server she and others were using with political voting stuff,” he said.

Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon said Lazar is untrustworthy and his assertions defied logic in light of the fact that Blumenthal’s emails were published online several years ago in a hack attributed to Guccifer. He is now under indictment over that hack and others, including one that involved a family member of Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush.

Final attempt to save Spain from second election in six months fails as socialist leader tells king he cannot form government.

A last-ditch attempt to save Spain from going to the polls for the second time in six months failed after the leader of the Socialist Workers’ party (PSOE), Pedro Sánchez, told the king that he could not muster enough seats, saying, “I cannot and should not submit myself for investiture”.

After a second round of meetings with party leaders failed to produce an agreement, King Felipe VI decided that no political party has enough support to form a government and confirmed that elections would be held on 26 June.

The general election held on 20 December resulted in no one party having a majority. Nor could an alliance of the right between the People’s party (PP) and Ciudadanos, or of the left between the Socialist Workers and Podemos, reach the magic number of 176 seats.
