9. What gets me is that it's the government

military precisely that told Hollywood to stop it that had nothing to do with our plight, but because The African-American press had enjoyed pointing out that Adolf Hitler admired America’s discriminatory policies, and as the next great conflict got under way, there was a widespread effort to keep such evidence from view... Though it continued its segregated practice but needed to promote the pretense of integration to the world

And The African-American press, again, also used the saying to critique the contours of the privileges being asserted. Leftist critics at these papers saw the expression as another tool of capitalist oppression. “As the distance between the poor whites and the rich whites widens,” the Philadelphia Tribune noted in 1930, the former will have “nothing to look forward to in life save the dubious satisfaction of being free, white, and twenty-one,” a privilege that is “considerable when there is no other” but nonetheless serves primarily to keep them from growing “restive under exploitation.” ‘I’m free, white, and twenty-one.’ Such arrogant assumptions on the part of a minority in world status is bound to bring reprisals, and Russia has seized upon this weakness in our democracy to exploit it.”

27. Was he ever ON the Hillary Bus to begin with?

He's the one who does that show for the Russia Today network, right? Hmmm... I question his judgement and motives.

RT, originally Russia Today, is a Russian government-funded television network that runs cable and satellite television channels directed to audiences outside of Russia as well as providing Internet content in various languages, including Russian.

RT has been called a propaganda outlet for the Russian government[10][11][12] and its foreign policy[10][12][13][14] by news reporters,[15] including former RT reporters.[16][17][18] RT has also been accused of spreading disinformation.[19][20][21][22] The United Kingdom media regulator, Ofcom, has repeatedly found RT to have breached rules on impartiality, and of broadcasting "materially misleading" content.[23][24][25] RT states that it offers a Russian perspective on global events.[3]

24. Trump reportedly called Putin first,

but Putin told him he didn't think U.S. elections laws would swing it for a Russian guy to be on the ticket. So he told Putin he would "bomb the shit out of Russia" and hung up.

You can't always get what you want, according to the Stones.

Trump will sit at his terrific desk and use his terrific phone to call some more potential terrific veep noms later today.

Ordinarily, it would be difficult for Trump to find someone as horrendous a citizen as he is, but luckily at this point in its history, the GOP bench is very deep indeed with horrendous citizens. They got binders full of horrendous citizens.

Pretty sure he could secure a veep nom before 3:30 Eastern this afternoon.

79. Rumor has it the Russians have many of them

Can you imagine them doing a public dump of her email, say... October 21st or thereabouts?

Anybody who has copies of those has an incredible amount of blackmail power of her. Disqualifying in and of itself.

Leveymg review of Hillary Clinton's exposure to risk 2016

SNIP/ F.B.I. is also trying to determine whether foreign powers, especially China or Russia, gained access to Mrs. Clinton’s private server, although at this point, any security breaches are speculation.

Behold this amazing mural of Vladimir Putin kissing Donald Trump on the lips

Photo by JeffreyW source http://www.flickr.com/photos/jeffreyww/4975375328/?quality=80&strip=all&w=3200

A burger restaurant in Lithuania has become internet-famous for a brilliant piece of political graffiti. Keulė Rūkė, a casual eatery in the capital city of Vilnius, has decorated its storefront with a mural of Russian president Vladimir Putin kissing Donald Trump.

It’s a nod to a famous photograph from 1979, of the Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev kissing his communist ally Erich Honecker, which was later graffitied on the Berlin Wall.

This one is very long so I just posted SNIP to do with Russia & Guccifer:

Kindly STOP Disrespecting the Intelligence Community in defense
They can't say whether Russia or China have copies of all of Hillary's emails, or only the ones Guccifer posted when he hacked into Blumenthal's account. We know Blumenthal had stuff he had no business having, and names were named. We know conversations were repeated when only a handful of people were in the room, and the people there increased their chances of figuring out "who was passing information to the Americans" just from emails on Wikileaks.

2. Here's the DCLeaks About page

DCleaks is a new level project aimed to analyze and publish a large amount of emails from top-ranking officials and their influence agents all over the world.

The project was launched by the American hacktivists who respect and appreciate freedom of speech, human rights and government of the people. We believe that our politicians have forgotten that in a democracy the people are the highest form of political authority so our citizens have the right to participate in governing our nation. The authorities are just lobbying interests of Wall Street fat cats, industrial barons and multinational corporations’ representatives who swallow up all resources and subjugate all markets.

We believe U.S. citizens have the right to know how domestic and foreign policies of the United States are shaped and who the real policy maker is.

Our aim is to find out and tell you the truth about U.S. decision-making process as well as about the key elements of American political life.

There are no borders or censorship for DCleaks. We are open for cooperation and ready to get valuable information, check its validity and to make it available to the public.

Best Donald Trump Jokes

"While they were in the DNC cyber matrix, the Russians apparently stole opposition research on Donald Trump. Russia, what are you doing? If you want damaging information about Donald Trump, just wait for him to talk." –Stephen Colbert

Trump: 'I have zero investments in Russia'

Source: The Hill

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Tuesday disputed claims that he has financial ties to Russia.

"In order to try and deflect the horror and stupidity of the Wikileakes disaster, the Dems said maybe it is Russia dealing with Trump. Crazy!" he tweeted.

"For the record, I have ZERO investments in Russia."
