Live: Bernie Rally with Hillary

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 15:18:39 -0400

Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are rallying together in New Hampshire on Wednesday beginning at at 2:15 p.m. EST, taking the stage at the University of New Hampshire in Durham to talk about college affordability. Sanders, a Vermont senator, did well in neighboring New Hampshire during the primaries, and Clinton will seek to capture many of those voters in the general election. The rally comes two days after a strong debate performance for Clinton, which she will try to leverage into bigger leads against Donald Trump in battleground states like New Hampshire.(image)



Senate Overrides Obama's Veto of Sue-Saudi Bill

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 14:55:08 -0400

The Senate voted Wednesday to override President Barack Obama's veto of a bill that would allow victims and families of 9/11 to sue Saudi Arabia for its alleged role in the terrorist attack 15 years ago. The 97-1 vote easily surpassed the 67 votes required to override a presidential veto. It now goes to the House where a similar outcome is expected later Wednesday, meaning Obama will suffer his first veto override in his nearly 8 years in office and the bill will become law despite his opposition.(image)



Alicia Machado: Trump's Insults Gave Me Eating Disorder

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 14:29:54 -0400

Hillary Clinton brought up former Miss Universe winner Alicia Machado in her debate against Donald Trump on Monday night, then released an ad with Machado talking about how Trump's insults and comments about her weight humiliated and shamed her. Trump repeated his criticism of Machado's weight on Fox and Friends Tuesday morning. Megyn Kelly interviewed Machado telling her, "The Trump campaign can't really deny that he harassed you over your weight, because it's on camera -- many times." After saying that Trump's insults caused her to suffer an eating disorder, Machado said, "I'm here because I know this person, and he is not a good person -- that is the point. The point is, no more abuse for us. No more abuse for the girls."(image)



Mylan EpiPen Profits 60% More Than It Told Congress

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 13:27:39 -0400

Lawmakers were skeptical last week when Mylan chief executive Heather Bresch said that the company made only $100 in profit for a two-pack of EpiPens. During a House hearing, Bresch repeatedly referred to a poster board showing how little of the $608 list price trickled back to the company. The incredulity was warranted: The profits Bresch told Congress about were calculated after factoring in the 37.5 percent U.S. tax rate, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission first reported by the Wall Street Journal. That tax rate is more than five times the overall tax rate the company actually paid last year and much higher than its actual U.S. tax rate, which tax specialists have pegged at close to zero.(image)



Gerson: Out of His Depth, Trump Clings to Deception

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 11:08:32 -0400

Michael Gerson, Washington Post: It is not surprising that [Donald] Trump inhabits his own factual universe, in which truth is determined by usefulness and lies become credible through repetition. What made the first presidential debate extraordinary -- really unprecedented -- was not the charges that Trump denied, but the ones he confirmed. When Hillary Clinton claimed he didn't pay any federal income taxes in a couple of years, Trump said: "That makes me smart." When Clinton accused Trump of defrauding a contractor out of money he was owed, Trump responded: "Maybe he didn't do a good job and I was unsatisfied with his work." When Clinton criticized Trump for casual misogyny and for calling women "pigs," Trump brought up Rosie O'Donnell and said, "She deserves it." When Clinton recalled a Justice Department lawsuit suit against Trump alleging housing discrimination, he dismissed it as "just one of those things."(image)



Trump Claims He Won Non-Existent CBS Poll

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 10:10:36 -0400

Donald Trump is misleading people by citing unscientific, unrepresentative Internet polls that portray him as the "winner" of Monday's debate. "We won every poll. Virtually every poll," he told supporters Tuesday afternoon, challenging the media consensus that Hillary Clinton prevailed. Trump also promoted eleven of these so-called polls in a tweet, calling his wins in them "such a great honor." In one case on Tuesday, Trump even cited a poll that did not exist. "I won CBS," he said on Fox & Friends. CBS correspondent Major Garrett took to Twitter to clarify: "We did not conduct a post-debate poll."(image)



Israel Statesman Shimon Peres Dies

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 08:32:20 -0400

The last surviving leader of Israel's founding generation, Shimon Peres was a three-time prime minister, the architect of the country's secretive nuclear program and a winner of the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to make peace with the Palestinians. Peres, who died Tuesday at 93 according to Israeli officials, was at the center of recurring Middle East dramas throughout his more than six decades of public life. Still in his mid-20s, Peres was put in charge of securing weapons for the main paramilitary in Israel's 1948 war of independence, and he remained in prominent roles until he stepped down as the country's president in 2014, at age 90.(image)



Arizona Republic Endorses First Democrat Ever

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 08:28:26 -0400

Since the Arizona Republic began publication in 1890, we have never endorsed a Democrat over a Republican for president. Never. This reflects a deep philosophical appreciation for conservative ideals and Republican principles. This year is different. The 2016 Republican candidate is not conservative and he is not qualified. That's why, for the first time in our history, the Arizona Republic will support a Democrat for president ... The Arizona Republic endorses Hillary Clinton for president. ... America needs to look ahead and build a new era of prosperity for the working class. This is Hillary Clinton's opportunity. She can reach out to those who feel left behind. She can make it clear that America sees them and will address their concerns. She can move us beyond rancor and incivility.(image)



Giuliani: I'd Skip Next Debates If I Were Trump

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 21:09:39 -0400

Donald Trump should skip the next two debates unless he gets special guarantees from the moderators, former New York mayor and top Trump adviser Rudy Giuliani told reporters after the debate. "If I were Donald Trump I wouldn't participate in another debate unless I was promised that the journalist would act like a journalist and not an incorrect, ignorant fact checker," Giuliani said. "If you wonder why Donald Trump thinks that the press is a left-wing basically oriented group, Lester Holt proved it tonight."(image)



Honky-Tonk Yodeler Jean Shepard Dies

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 21:07:53 -0400

Jean Shepard, a mainstay of the Grand Ole Opry whose feisty honky-tonk songs of the 1950s and '60s paved the way for the brash, assertive style of singers like Loretta Lynn, died on Sunday in Gallatin, Tennesee. She was 82. The cause was complications of Parkinson's and heart disease. Shepard, who grew up on the country blues of Jimmie Rodgers and the western swing of Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys, brought a freewheeling, cheeky style to the eternal themes of heartache, cheating and marital discord, planting the flag for independent women. "Stand by your man" became "call out your man" in songs like "The Root of All Evil (Is a Man)" and "Many Happy Hangovers to You." She suggested she might be ready for a little adventure herself in "Twice the Lovin' in Half the Time" and dared speak up for women on the wrong side of a love affair in "The Other Woman."(image)



Trump Supporters Flooded Online Polls

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 21:03:59 -0400

Daily Dot: You may be getting trolled right now without even knowing it. Donald Trump supporters artificially manipulated the results of online polls to create a false narrative that the Republican nominee won the first presidential debate on Monday night. The efforts originated from users of the pro-Trump Reddit community r/The_Donald and 4chan messaged boards, which bombarded around 70 polls, including those launched by Time, Fortune, and CNBC. Polls that were not open to public voting consistently put Clinton ahead of Trump. In a flash poll by Public Policy Polling, Clinton led Trump 51 to 40. A CNN/ORC poll conducted immediately following the debate found significantly stronger support for Clinton, who topped Trump 62 to 27.(image)



Bridgegate Witness: Christie Backed Lane Closures

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 16:47:50 -0400

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was aware of and supported a plan to close lanes at the George Washington Bridge in 2013 in an act of political payback, a key prosecution witness testified Tuesday at the criminal trial of two former Christie associates. David Wildstein, a former executive at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, told jurors in Newark federal court that he and Bill Baroni, another Port Authority executive, discussed the lane closure with Christie. "Mr. Baroni said, 'Governor, I have to tell you, there's a tremendous amount of traffic in Fort Lee this morning,'" Wildstein testified, adding that Baroni's tone was sarcastic. The testimony marked the first time federal prosecutors have presented specific evidence to back their contention that the Republican governor knew about the scandal(image)



Glenn Beck Grills Cruz Over His Trump Flop

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 13:32:01 -0400

On Friday, Ted Cruz officially endorsed Donald Trump and the news did not sit well with Glenn Beck, who had campaigned for Cruz during the Republican primaries on the grounds that he had been anointed by God to save America, and who has vowed never to support Trump. Cruz appeared on Beck's radio show today to try and justify his decision and it did not go well for Cruz. "I'm asking you for new information," Beck said. "Why now?"(image)



Kevin Hart New King of Comedy, Dethrones Seinfeld

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 13:03:49 -0400

Since 2006, Jerry Seinfeld has seemed the the insurmountable King of Comedy. His combined pretax earnings over the last 10 years top $900 million, and year after year he has claimed the top spot on our list of the world's highest-paid comedians. No longer: For the first time since Forbes started delving into the money of the funny business, someone other than Seinfeld has taken the title of the top-earning joker. Between June 2015 and June 2016, Kevin Hart made $87.5 million -- over $30 million more than Seinfeld's $43.5 million.(image)
