Trump Campaign Melts Down As They Realize Hillary Clinton Is Beating Them On The Ground

The Trump campaign has melted down just days before the first presidential debate as they are low on cash and realizing that Hillary Clinton is out organizing them and winning on the ground.

The Trump campaign has melted down just days before the first presidential debate as they are low on cash and realizing that Hillary Clinton is out organizing them and winning on the ground.
Politico reported:

Frustration is growing within Donald Trump’s campaign over the Republican nominee’s yawning money gap with Democratic rival Hillary Clinton — just as the presidential race heads into its final fall stretch.

Trump’s top advisers have held a series of tense conversations in recent days about how to close a fundraising hole that’s grown to over $200 million – a deficit that’s led Trump to essentially cede the TV airwaves to his Democratic rival. The discussions, which were relayed by more than a half-dozen sources, have veered into finger pointing, with some participants pinning the blame on the Republican National Committee or on Steven Mnuchin, Trump’s national finance chairman and a newcomer to the political scene.


The flare-up comes at a critical juncture in the campaign, as both sides turn their attention to voter turnout. Clinton has used her formidable financial advantage to significantly out-organize Trump, investing seven times the amount of money on TV ads and opening up dozens more swing-state field offices than her Republican opponent.

Winning campaigns aren’t plagued by finger-pointing and infighting. Bitter internal fights ar

White ‘Black Lives Matter’ Protesters Walk Free After Shutting Down London Airport

More :TheRoot


Nine Black Lives Matter protesters in the United Kingdom will not serve any jail time nor pay any fines after shutting down London City Airport on September 6 to raise awareness about environmental racism—specifically air pollution emitted from the airport and its detrimental effects on black people in the surrounding neighborhoods of Newham, the Daily Mail UK reports.

Most UK media outlets report that all nine protesters are white; however, the Daily Mail reports that only eight of them are white.

Natalie Fiennes, 25, cousin of actors Ralph and Joseph Fiennes; Ben Tippet, 24; William Pettifer, 27; Esme Waldron, 23; Alex Etchart, 26; Richard Collett-White, 23; Deborah Francis-Grayson, 31; Sama Baka, 27; and Sam Lund-Harket, 32, were all arrested on charges of “suspicion of aggravated trespass, being unlawfully airside and breaching London City Airport bylaws,” BBC.com reports.

The London Metropolitan Police (Met) reported that the protesters had “erected a tripod and … locked themselves together on the runway” after reportedly using a rubber dinghy or swimming across the River Thames to reach the airport’s single runway. Hundreds of flights were canceled or delayed over the course of the six-hour protest. Flights resumed at approximately 12:00 p.m. the same afternoon.

Clinton aides claim Obama photo wasn't intended as a smear

Barack Obama's campaign team today accused Hillary Clinton's beleaguered staff of mounting a desperate dirty tricks operation by circulating a picture of him in African dress, feeding into false claims on US websites that he is a Muslim.

Obama's campaign manager, David Plouffe, described it as "the most shameful, offensive fear-mongering we've seen from either party in this election". Obama has had to spend much of the campaign stressing he is a Christian not a Muslim and did not study at a madrassa.

Seattle Seahawks Are Planning Some Sort Of National Anthem Protest

Two weeks after San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s national anthem sitdown grabbed headlines, the Seattle Seahawks could be ready to join him.

Seahawks defensive back Jeremy Lane has already done so. Lane sat down during the national anthem before Seattle’s final preseason game against the Oakland Raiders last week. But now, it seems the entire Seahawks team is planning something during their season opener against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. What that something is, though, remains unclear.

The first sign that more Seahawks players may join Lane and Kaepernick came from veteran wide receiver Doug Baldwin, who told the Seattle Times on Wednesday that he has considered sitting through the anthem.

“I have [considered it],” Baldwin said. “I want to make sure I get all of my ducks in a row before I do so.’’

Linebacker Bruce Wagner told the Times that whatever the team decides to do, “it’s not going to be individual. It’s going to be a team thing. That’s what the world needs to see. The world needs to see people coming together versus being individuals.”

Wagner added that it would be “a big surprise.”

On Thursday afternoon, Baldwin posted a cryptic tweet about the team’s plans:

Colin Kaepernick’s Jersey Sales Have Skyrocketed Since He Began His Protest



Some fans have set fire to Colin Kaepernick’s 49ers jersey, while others have only attempted to set fire to it. These protests of a protest doesn’t seem to be doing much good since, for every burnt jersey, there are plenty more being purchased.

Before Kaep began his protest against police brutality and racial inequality by sitting (and later kneeling out of respect for the military) during the national anthem, he had the 20th-best selling jersey on the 49ers team site. Considering the site still sells Joe Montana, Steve Young, Jerry Rice and Ronnie Lott jerseys, this isn’t completely unimpressive, but it still puts his lack of popularity as a player in the bay area into perspective.

However, his protest has turned heads, and it seems like a silent majority are agreeing with Kaepernick’s stance, and are helping make his promised upcoming million-dollar donation to various charities a little easier on his wallet. His jersey is now third in the 49ers store.
