Proof that Democrat/Liberal supporters hear only what they want to hear.

That should alone be enough for the charge of tampering with evidence, even though she has not been charged with a crime, this should be a criminal investigation, as it has been found that secret information was stored and included within a number of emails.

Clinton thinks she is above the law, that should be obvious to everyone. Queen Hillary should consider abdicating.

If she had nothing to hide, why did she "wipe" the server? If the data can't be retrieved, it's obstruction of justice in the investigation of her handling of classified information.

7 ( +10 / -3 )

Didn't it come out weeks ago that the server was scrubbed ? She (or her lawyers) has said that she provided all documents related to the Benghazi attacks that were under subpoena and that the only data which was erased were personal emails.

-5 ( +3 / -8 )

Lawyers for presidents.....don't they advise clients to deny guilt even when caught with a hand in the cookie jar? Not a very honerable profession to be proud clearing known criminals of guilt.

Hillary fits the mold, has for decades.

She's in big trouble for sure. This scandal has slowed her campaign down significantly, because ALL the focus is NOT on her, but what she has...let's say allegedly done. But the evidence is overwhelming and now we find out that there are servers in Colorado that were found in some office closet holding Top Secret governmental information. This is bad stuff. Her likability, down, her unpopularity up, She has problems being authentic, she is a horrible speaker unlike her husband who for whatever you think about Bill, he can speak, he can convince people of anything. Hillary is NOT that kind of person, she always looks as though she has a chip on her shoulder, her smile is not genuine, she just doesn't have it and I'm sure she is probably pulling her hair out, she probably thought her staff erased all of her HD permanently and probably to her astonishment that they even saved a lot of the info on back up disks, Not a good thing for her. She's pretty much done and anyone at the WH, Carville and Davis can spin all they want, absolutely NO ONE is buying her story this time.

Too bad Bass, I was waiting to see her struggle in debates. She would have certainly chocked there so long as a biased coach like Candy Crowly wouldn't help out.

She's pretty much done. It's going to be next to impossible for her to come back. And the Dems would be foolish to make her the nominee by default. She's the Mitt Romney of 215. Amazing, just a few months ago it was inconceivable that Trump could win possibly the GOP nomination and impossible that Clinton could possibly loss the nomination. Life is so interesting.

The young and vicious Hillary Rodham (Clinton) was one of the lawyer for Dems. during Watergate scandal. Now, it starts to smell like Watergate scandal all over again. Hillary will be toasted along with few of her inner circle, and Obama seems ready for presidential pardon on stand by. No one is above the law in U.S. including her. Many liberals are looking for the alternative as Hillary continues to spin without shame.

2 ( +6 / -4 )

She wasn't supposed to be using her private email servers for official government related directives. So to say that she said she gave all the info she needed and only wiped her private emails is being really naive if you believe it. She also had it professionally wiped. But we could always just go with the Hillary logic "what difference does it make?"

This is rumored to clear the path for Biden. Let's wait and see what he is requested to do.

As for me, this looks really bad for Hillary. The Clintons have slithered out of numerous 'indesretions' for decades though.

I like this and need to share... http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/08/18/report-republicans-have-happier-marriages-than-democrats/

It seems to me there is a larger problem here. The U.S. government has way too much classified material for America to be called a free democratic country. The U.S. government keeps secrets like WWII was still raging. The U.S. government keeps secrets like the Chinese government. I have to wonder how any high level government employee can get anything done with all these protocols, or keep anything straight in their mind without having a brain the size of Walmart. What was classified? What wasn't? What can I put in an email on this portal? What must go in the other portal? How many mail addresses do I need to keep all this separate? What are my passwords? Oops. Made a mistake? Will it go away? Or will I need to cover my tracks?

1 ( +5 / -4 )

I hope this sinks her. As somebody pointed out above, over the years Bill and Hillary have been given more than one free pass on political scandals which would have sunk other politicians, both Democrats and Republicans. Furthermore, with Clinton on one side of the aisle and Trump on the other, you have to worry about the political future of the United States. Where have the mainstream electable candidates gone? The current crop of contenders (on both sides) is more than a little scary.

5 ( +8 / -3 )

This will be a very interesting nomination and election. I thought Trump would have fizzled by now, he's gaining steam! No doubt anyone against Trump has tried to dig up his skeletons by now.

I presumed Hillary wouldn't be the nominee knowing she is terrible under pressure.

the current GOP lineup has many potentials, if only I could combine some platforms I like from them them into a super candidate!

-3 ( +1 / -4 )

Hillary, when asked about wiping the disc clean.."What, do you mean like with a cloth?" She can't even take it that serious.

I just can't stand this person. Even back in 2007/8. Watching her talk, she just screams out desperation. I'll never understand what others see in her. But I'm glad the truth is coming out. Sanders would by FAR be a better president than Hillary if the Democrats were to win.

2 ( +6 / -4 )

I hope this sinks her. As somebody pointed out above, over the years Bill and Hillary have been given more than one free pass on political scandals which would have sunk other politicians, both Democrats and Republicans.

I agree. The Clinton's are one of the most corrupted politicians that have gotten away with virtually everything as you said, would either sink a politician or get them landed in prison and the reason why Bill never got caught is because for number one as a lawyer, unlike his wife, he is smart, shrewd and cunning, eloquent and has the finesse to get out of literally any situation, Hillary just doesn't possess that craft. She thought she did and if Holder were still head of the DOJ, perhaps she might still have been able to avoid the axe. But Lynch obviously NOT as partisan as predecessor was is looking into this and taking this very seriously and good on her for doing her job without being politically bias.

But we could always just go with the Hillary logic "what difference does it make?"

Hillary has made a series of demonstrably false statements (and now jokes...l) regarding the issue. She wasn't supposed to have destroyed her Blackberries either, I'm not defending that on the merits just wondering why this is news today.

But we could always just go with the Hillary logic "what difference does it make?"

From the looks of it, that line just won't do it this time around. Im sure she's beyond pissed off at some of her staff for being so incompetent of backing up all that information SHE thought was wiped clean. I'm sure she's kicking herself in the rear for that. Maybe they thought she would need it at a later date. Talk about Schadenfreude....

-1 ( +5 / -6 )

If anyone else had mis-handled sensitive, possibly top-secret, information like this, they would be in prison for treason by now. Instead, Mrs. Bill Clinton is the democratic front runner for U.S. President.

Says a lot about the morality -- or, rather the lack of it -- of the entire Democrat Party. . . .

3 ( +9 / -6 )

Screw both parties. Lets put in an independent president. I don't want to see a Clinton (Hillary) or a Bush (Jeb shudder) in office.

9 ( +10 / -1 )

Mrs. Bill Clinton is following the standard steps of all liberals use when confronted with the truth:

Act like it isn't there;

Offer up conflicting and nonsense reasoning;

Lie;

Get really angry and try to shout it away by saying the issue was already dealt with;

Berate the messenger and ignor the message;

Pretend the whole thing is a joke and doesn't really matter

The last step is the most annoying tactic of them all. All liberals do this when the facts have them utterly surrounded.

That is not actually correct is it? Remember the name "Scooter" Libby?

The ability of sleazy politicians and other officials to avoid prosecution/jail time is a bipartisan issue, both sides do it. Nixon should have gone to prison for Watergate, and Clinton should have been held to account for any number of irregularities (White Water, Lewinsky, etc.). Hillary has also sailed way too close to the wind for years.

As I have said previously, perhaps it is time that America tear away the mask that is its myth of democracy and instead admit that certain "patrician" families run the joint.

I'm not giving her a pass, but ask anyone for their private email server, and there's gonna be a lot of wiping going on..

I'm not sure if they had enough of a reason to demand it in the first place. A Fox News report that said a couple classified emails weren't marked classified? Really?

Either way, I was leaning toward Bernie anyway.

Clinton's lawyer says her email server was wiped clean

On whose authority, and on whose authority was a private email server (and account(s) used for government business) maintained in the first place?

3 ( +3 / -0 )

Probably not much will come of this except for some sensational GOP sound bites.

The FBI was investigating the security structure of the hard drive to see how secure it was. They were not tasked with checking the emails and whatever is or is not on the server is meaningless to them. The quote about getting deleted information is not related to what they are doing even though the reporter put it in the next line. He's just saying that it's possible to retrieve lost data.

As for the emails themselves, a vast majority of them would be on Washington servers since Clinton would have been interacting with those people. When she sends an email they will have a record of it in the receiver's box, and when they send an email to her they will have a copy of that as well. It would be difficult if not impossible for Clinton to hide anything that is business related.

The only "evidence" of classified information is a few emails that have since been changed to unclassified, and there's no direct evidence that they were actually sent. The GOP can choose their words carefully in an attempt to trick independents, but I think the media will help to keep them in check.

As for the wiping itself, it was the lesser of two evils. Obviously the GOP would go through each email looking for political ammunition regardless if it was related to the investigation or not. That's guaranteed. The fact we are here is because of the never-ending Benghazi hunt, which, strangely enough, hasn't even been mentioned by anyone here. That sure did go away quickly.

Will it hurt her? Probably, at least in the short term, but she hasn't presented herself yet. The debates haven't started and that will have the most impact. For now most of the exposure people have is through these articles. I'm still waiting to hear what some of her policy proposals are but generally speaking I'd rather have an alternative to take a serious look at.

Yeah, right. This time, that argument won't work and ANYONE even believing that nonesense is a bigger fool than she is.

They were not tasked with checking the emails and whatever is or is not on the server is meaningless to them. The quote about getting deleted information is not related to what they are doing even though the reporter put it in the next line. He's just saying that it's possible to retrieve lost data.

Her campaign is pretty much at this point, on life support.

As for the emails themselves, a vast majority of them would be on Washington servers since Clinton would have been interacting with those people. When she sends an email they will have a record of it in the receiver's box, and when they send an email to her they will have a copy of that as well. It would be difficult if not impossible for Clinton to hide anything that is business related.

But we're not talking that the servers that all government employee use, we are talking about the private servers she had on her personal possession. Problem is, the servers that were discovered in Colorado. If they can with forensics even find something that was of highly classified top secret info on those drives and find that they were kept in an insecure location and were passed off to or through other individuals without a classified clearance or any of the for-mentioned, she's through, her campaign is pretty much done as it is, but digging in her heels and thinking that the people will overlook this, she's beyond stupid if she thinks that. Personally, I don't feel a shred of sorrow for that woman.

The only "evidence" of classified information is a few emails that have since been changed to unclassified, and there's no direct evidence that they were actually sent. The GOP can choose their words carefully in an attempt to trick independents, but I think the media will help to keep them in check.

Super, she already lied-period. That was her first mistake, so we are already beyond that and it's an established fact. On that point alone, she's already in hot water.

As for the wiping itself, it was the lesser of two evils. Obviously the GOP would go through each email looking for political ammunition regardless if it was related to the investigation or not. That's guaranteed.

And why not, if the shoe was on the other foot, they would do the same.

The fact we are here is because of the never-ending Benghazi hunt, which, strangely enough, hasn't even been mentioned by anyone here. That sure did go away quickly.

Then she should have never lied about Benghazi, still the families don't know what's going on. The president promised to call them, none got a call back from the WH. They are avoiding the families and that's justice, that's acceptable? Of course that issue won't go away until they get some answers. The families have the absolute right to know. If your loved one died and you got dissed the way the families did by Barack and Hillary, you'd expect answers as well.

Will it hurt her? Probably, at least in the short term, but she hasn't presented herself yet.

She's pretty much done and about ready to be served up.

The debates haven't started and that will have the most impact. For now most of the exposure people have is through these articles. I'm still waiting to hear what some of her policy proposals are but generally speaking I'd rather have an alternative to take a serious look at.

At this point, her dreams of taking over the WH and expecting a coronation is pretty much over. That train left.

-5 ( +2 / -7 )

Bass, I'm sorry, but the GOP will have to have some kind of change if they want to win the WH. Hillary or no Hillary, that fact will not go away on it's own. You are pinning your hopes and dreams on a Democratic scandal that will make a Republican president while still alienating Latinos and women.

Not impossible, but it's a long shot.

Sanders, a chance. Trump, I don't see him winning the nomination. And who would be his VP selection IF he does?

While I'm all in favor of a non groomed politician in office so not to get more of the same Trumps not my first choice. Ben Carson is a smart common sense man. The liberals have called home numerous insulting adjectives here and U.S. mainstream news outlets but they are far from the truth as common sense can see. Paul who is more a Libertarian. Cruz is a smart man, Rubio has mature quite a bit in the last three years. Carly Fiorina gave an impressive debate! The GOP has wonderful choices. Definitely can't say the same for the Democrats.

To me that shows a severe lack of party qualifications. With Hillary all but out of the race I am confident a democrat will not reside in the WH in 2017! Amen to that!!

Actually that is not entirely true. Dems do have mostly the single women, but the majority of married women do vote more conservatively. That's not to say that many were pleased with Trump's dust up with Megyn, but they do agree with his message and in this general election this time around you will see more White people coming out to vote even if they don't have a huge chunk of the latin vote it won't make that much of a difference....yet at least. The people are tired and angry at Congress and the president, the people want REAL change and they feel like they are not getting that from Washington, now on the liberal side, you have Bernie and supporters that feel we need MORE socialism and bigger entitlement spending. At least you have Trump who is serious about stopping illegal immigration and for building a wall, he is saying things that NONE of the other would ever dream of doing. As far as Hillary is concerned, I really doubt she'll make it. She looks tired, pissed, not bringing in the crowds

Not impossible, but it's a long shot.

You never know

-2 ( +2 / -4 )

Oh the real election process hasn't even started yet. This fall is going to shake a lot of things out.

Sanders is a great addition since he asks a lot of the questions that the middle class is already asking themselves. Why do we have to go bankrupt when we get sick? Why do we have such a widening income gap? Why is college tuition up 1200% in the last 35 years? Why aren't workers wages rising? He has a lot of momentum right now but he will have to perform in the debates on the other issues like foreign policy. That will be his test. He's also showing that you can be a "straight talker" without the baggage of racism and misogyny that Trump embodies.

At about the same time you're going to have the next budget war, and it looks like the GOP will push to shut down the government over Planned Parenthood. That will be an important question in the debates and people will see some of the GOP candidates lobbying to cut medical services to women because of the abortion debacle. I don't see how they will be able to satisfy their base without alienating some independents. Cruz will most likely lead the charge and sabotage any Republicans who go against him.

The Clinton investigation will continue since it's a professional, political investigation. The GOP's best hope will be some kind of fuzzy "perhaps she did something wrong" since it gives them the ability to speculate endlessly and opens the door to a 12th and 13th Benghazi investigation. This will be playing out right in the middle of the debates and the government shutdown. Clinton needs to play her cards right to avoid the minefield.

And, of course, there's Trump, who will no doubt continue to entertain us with his racism and sexism. He's also going to throw a few curve balls into the debates and can decide where the attention goes which can go either way for the GOP.

It's going to be a fun election season to say the least.

Clinton's Lawyer Says Her Email Server Was Wiped Clean - article

HEY! Just like the conscience of the GOP-Tea. "Yeah, that whole AWOL Bush disaster? Yeah, never heard of it." - GOP-Tea

"Republican senators on both committees are pressing to see whether any emails sent or received by Clinton on the private server while she was secretary of state contained any secret information that should have been only exchanged on secured, encrypted government communications portals." - article

The GOP-Tea just can't get off their Merry-Go-Round of disasters. Once they open their mouths they are immediately setting the standard for examination of their own e-mails and private servers. (And perhaps why their Blackwater Erik Prince is now working for the Chinese in Africa, but that can wait for their next lapse of conscience?)

Madame Clinton didn't set computer security policy as Secretary of State and the staff assigned to those responsibilities can easily answer the GOP-Tea witch hunt's ponderous and sudden interest in security. (note: Madame Clinton left office February 1, 2013 and the GOP-Tea is falling all over themselves over two years later and one election away from rejection by the electorate.)

Obviously the GOP-Tea members of Congress haven't anything better to do to protect Americans from Madame Clinton.

Then he should answer: because of failed liberal policies that have stifled economic growth.

He has a lot of momentum right now but he will have to perform in the debates on the other issues like foreign policy. That will be his test. He's also showing that you can be a "straight talker" without the baggage of racism and misogyny that Trump embodies.

If Trump is to be the nominee, there is No way Sanders would win. He's got growing support, I'll give him that, but mostly from people that are for big time income redistribution. The majority of Americans don't want MORE things taken away from them, we have been through that for the last 7 years and Sanders is doubling on that??? Hillary is it and if she stays, still she would be a challenge, but NOT at all an impossible person to beat. She has been so wounded with her lies and scandals, not to mention, she's leading Trump by on 6 points or so, that gap is closing fast. That is definitely bad news for Hillary and for the Democratic party. Personally, I wish the Dems would nominate Sanders, but even THEY KNOW that although he is getting a lot of support from the socialist crowds, overall, he pretty much would be destroyed by Trump.

At about the same time you're going to have the next budget war, and it looks like the GOP will push to shut down the government over Planned Parenthood. That will be an important question in the debates and people will see some of the GOP candidates lobbying to cut medical services to women because of the abortion debacle.

As they should. If chop shops like PP want to keep doing the vile thing they do with fetuses, let them be privately funded. At least then none of us tax payers have to be complicit in what they do.

I don't see how they will be able to satisfy their base without alienating some independents. Cruz will most likely lead the charge and sabotage any Republicans who go against him.

Hardly, both Trump and Sanders have a lot of independent support-BOTH, but This time around, you have a lot of White people, young and old and especially married White women that are beyond angry, feeling like second class citizens and taking a backseat to overwhelming PC that is choking the country. Take your pick: from the open border, to accommodating illegals, giving them licenses, social services, work benefits, the H1N1 Visa is a huge problem for Americans, the crime rate rising from a lot of illegals, forcing Americans to learn Spanish. These people are coming out in droves and they are angry, now I will say, nothing is for sure or guaranteed and anything is possible, but Trump's polls are rising, Bush is doing horribly, the rest except for Carson and Fiorino are doing miserably.

The Clinton investigation will continue since it's a professional, political investigation.

Smith, the woman lied. That's not political, that's a fact. She made it a political scandal by NOT telling the truth when she was asked some questions, that is what got her in trouble, the same thing that got her husband in trouble and the same thing that got Nixon in trouble. If you don't want ANY trouble, don't lie. Pure and simple. It's NOT Rocket Science.

The GOP's best hope will be some kind of fuzzy "perhaps she did something wrong" since it gives them the ability to speculate endlessly and opens the door to a 12th and 13th Benghazi investigation. This will be playing out right in the middle of the debates and the government shutdown. Clinton needs to play her cards right to avoid the minefield.

The GOP doesn't have to try anything, just watch the buzzards pick away at Hillary's political carcass

And, of course, there's Trump, who will no doubt continue to entertain us with his racism and sexism.

Funny how libs call Trump a racist when the Dems run with the race card and the sexist card all the time. Once again, it stinks of liberal hypocrisy.....

He's also going to throw a few curve balls into the debates and can decide where the attention goes which can go either way for the GOP.

As would the Democrats, that's politics.

It's going to be a fun election season to say the least.

I agree!

HEY! Just like the conscience of the GOP-Tea. "Yeah, that whole AWOL Bush disaster? Yeah, never heard of it." - GOP-Tea

Yawwwwn, Bush has nothing to do with Hillary's problems.

"Republican senators on both committees are pressing to see whether any emails sent or received by Clinton on the private server while she was secretary of state contained any secret information that should have been only exchanged on secured, encrypted government communications portals." - article

Yeah, that's what ONE article was saying, so now the investigation can end. Desperation at its worst.

The GOP-Tea just can't get off their Merry-Go-Round of disasters. Once they open their mouths they are immediately setting the standard for examination of their own e-mails and private servers. (And perhaps why their Blackwater Erik Prince is now working for the Chinese in Africa, but that can wait for their next lapse of conscience?)

Did you know Trump is now leading in all three swing states?

Madame

Clinton didn't set computer security policy as Secretary of State and the staff assigned to those responsibilities can easily answer the GOP-Tea witch hunt's ponderous and sudden interest in security.

Sorry, but the woman is pretty much done.

But really? "Liberal Policies are to blame for AWOL Bush's destruction of the Clinton Surplus handed to Bush to squander in his wars based on lies?"

It is uncertain that this is what the GOP-Tea is pursuing in their email debacle from two years ago, but, why else ignore their complete abdication of responsibilities to the American People?

If failed liberal policies are creating the income gap then the super rich must really love liberal policies.

Please don't change your view. Others will be talking about the fact that abortion is a small part of what they do, yet the GOP is going to nuke the entire organization and create a lot of collateral damage in the process. But I really want the GOP candidates to say exactly what you said.

but This time around, you have a lot of White people, young and old and especially married White women that are beyond angry, feeling like second class citizens and taking a backseat to overwhelming PC that is choking the country.

Someone is telling you that the GOP stands a chance because of the silent majority of angry white women who are going to vote for the GOP because of their anger with political correctness? WTF?

No, but I know a few people that did.

I don't know, if Trump weren't in the picture, Dr. Ben Carson pull in ahead, but he's second after Trump. People seemed fine with him. He's not White, but a loooot of White people like him and where he stands on the issues. Here we go again, the left trying desperately to make it seem Conservatives don't care and this time, it's not working.

Clearly, this article is about the witch hunt GOP-Tea operatives in Congress are waging to pillory Madame Clinton as a purely political farce.

So who's being partisan? The FBI? Obama's admin. DOJ that has appointed a prosecutor to investigate the allegations, are they also on a witch hunt? How about the inspector general of the Department of State? Are they being partisan or part of a witch hunt? Or how about from the intelligence comity or some of the Top leading Democrats? Hillary, the liar has finally stepped too deep into it and this time, the Republicans don't have to do really anything, the buzzards are circling her carcass, remember that and NO amount of blaming the GOP will get her off, but then again, you could blame Bush for her demise. ROFL!

It is uncertain that this is what the GOP-Tea is pursuing in their email debacle from two years ago, but, why else ignore their complete abdication of responsibilities to the American People?

How?? They weren't in power, but after 7 long winded and exhaustive years, this lack of responsibility this guy has shown to the American people shows once again that Dems are good for one thing... Humanitarian causes, that's about it.

If failed liberal policies are creating the income gap then the super rich must really love liberal policies

True, but we are not the majority, so for them, hardly.

Please don't change your view. Others will be talking about the fact that abortion is a small part of what they do,

Ok, you keep telling yourself that, Sup.

yet the GOP is going to nuke the entire organization and create a lot of collateral damage in the process. But I really want the GOP candidates to say exactly what you said.

I want them to completely defund PP from tax payer government funded money. If they can raise the money from private donors, well, I guess they can keep their chop shops up and running. I'm sure George Soros would invest heavily into it. Let the prince of the night fund it and least without my money I don't need to be complicit in their sick schemes.

Someone is telling you that the GOP stands a chance because of the silent majority of angry white women who are going to vote for the GOP because of their anger with political correctness? WTF

No, the polls. I know it kills you libs to see that a GOP could possibly retake the WH. But once again, Obama had a chance to be a good president, but instead, he turned out to be a charlatan. Can't wait until this guy leaves for the last time On that helicopter.

You say that a lot. :)

Hey, if the shoe fits....

Awesome. Planned Parenthood provides crucial medical services to women, abortion being a tiny portion of that. They also provide cancer screening, STD prevention and education, contraception, and a lot of other things. I want you to stand up and say that your ideological position against abortion will strip these other services away from women, and I want you to make it very clear that you are conservative and caucus with Republicans. That should help reinforce the GOP's image as being at war with women.

And if you could shut the government down because you so want to strip women of these services, then please do that as well. Stand up and fight for what you believe in and don't listen to anyone who says anything different.

Planned Parenthood’s latest report states that it performed “11 million services during nearly five million clinical visits.” So, now their abortion number jumps to 6.6 percent of clinic visits were for abortions. That’s right 6.6 percent of all visits to Planned Parenthood result in an abortion.

According to Planned Parenthood’s own apologist, Media Matters, its “total revenue from abortion services was approximately $164,154,000,” a year. Accordingly, over 51 percent of Planned Parenthood’s clinic income comes from abortion.

Keep telling yourself that. This time, NO ONE believes that.

But back to Hillary and the Dems in general, there was a new poll that came out the other day about the president and it doesn't look good about his foreign policy handling (what would you expect?) Dems are putting themselves in the crosshairs of people completely marginalized and are now in the exact same position as how the GOP was back in 2008, but Dems for some strange reasons just double down on pushing the people into thinking that they are right and that we need more social programs, more big government and more spending stagnant wages and the majority of people are fed up with it and want it all to stop! Hillary seems to be going further left each time, even the libs aren't buying it, add to this latest scandal. She is seriously damaged goods.

I just don't think she can come back, but the Dems are just marching her through because they have invested a lot of time in her and they are just going to juggernaut this through and remember she is NOW only leading Trump by 6 points, that gap is closing fast on her. Either way, NOW it won't be a shoe-in for Hillary.

I think you mean 'shoo-in', but I guess you're not in professional journalist mode now.

But you're right. Things do not look so great for Clinton. (And I don't mind to see her forced to make a little effort.) Then again, things don't look good for the Republicans either.

I usually am.

Don't know about that. Trump is speaking to a crowd of about 40,000 people. That's pretty impressive and they just keep getting bigger. When Obama was campaigning he was the underdog at first and then the crowds grew in size, so I'm not so sure you're right on that point....

0 ( +1 / -1 )

Remember when you said that Trump was only supported by fringe nut jobs in the GOP? Now you are saying how impressive his crowds are. Looks like we should bump the fringe number up.

As for Planned Parenthood, please, please continue. Find astage somewhere and tell people that you will be a patriotic American and end millions of cancer screenings for women.

bass, I'm going to assume you talked yourself into a corner when you said that the 24% of people who support Trump are fringe nut jobs in the GOP, and now you're kinda stuck since you were boasting that his support numbers are increasing. Your answers on this topic from this point on will most likely be off-topic nonsense so let's consider it a bassism and move on.

No, just the abortion chop shops!

GOP plans do not include only shutting down the abortion part of their services. They are very clear that they want the entire organization, including things like cancer screenings, taken away from women. Do you disagree with the majority of GOP candidates and supporters?

Yes, that's what I though at first, but now I see a huge wave of people that are discontent and dissatisfied with the social economic status of this country, how our politicians have failed them, congress, the president has been governing as a unilateralist Tyrant. People are angry and Trump has tapped into that anger, he is not a politician and not part of the Washington establishment. He's not ashamed to say he's rich and that making money is not a sin, he's definitely for business. Small business people love him, so I do slowly see the phenomenon and I'm rethinking that maybe I was wrong. As on the Left, you have a lot of libs that see something in Sanders. They want more government, a bigger social net, talk about fringe. Either way, no matter where you stand on the political fence, the people are angry and they want serious change.

and now you're kinda stuck since you were boasting that his support numbers are increasing. Your answers on this topic from this point on will most likely be off-topic nonsense so let's consider it a bassism and move on.

Sup, Seriously, that's it? I know, it's all just killing you guys. LOL I'm not a Trump supporter, but if Trump can really change America and get it out of the ditch that it's in and become the great country that it once was...he would get my vote.

GOP plans do not include only shutting down the abortion part of their services.

The Dems would do the same thing if given the chance. Remember how they filibustered to defunding executive amnesty. Please stop playing that game, if Dems can stop the government for a cause they believe in, they'll do it as well, but remember, they too, are subject to the Nuclear option, that Reid instituted to congress.

They are very clear that they want the entire organization, including things like cancer screenings, taken away from women. Do you disagree with the majority of GOP candidates and supporters?

Vehemently disagree. Sup, in all honesty, NO one in the GOP and no matter how the libs are trying to spin their way out of this, that is not, was not the central issue for publicly wanting to defund PP and you guys know it. More asinine, nauseating talk from the far left. The issue is the brutal practice of harvesting fetus organs for sale and profit, that's the issue and nothing else and the public has a right to know. 99% of women don't even know that this is going on when they go in to terminate a pregnancy with PP. Again, if the evil snake George Soros wants to fund it or other Hollywood or Silicon elite want to provide and support the organization privately, so be it, they would survive, but the rest of the tax payers don't have to be complicit in their chop shop activities.

So your official position is that you are not a Trump supporter, but will promote his policies and defend him. Kind of like talking out of both sides of your mouth, no?

And check up on the position of the GOP candidates. Fiorina, Huckabee, Jindal, Cruz, Walker, Bush. They want to get rid of Planned Parenthood in its entirety. Your position seems more in line with Trump or the Democrats. Welcome aboard.

I agreed on many of his policies that he's advocating before he even jumped in the race. Nice try, Sup.

Because there are other facilities that are more regulated, meaning: they don't chop up babies, but provide women with the necessary care and help they need.

Not at all with the Democratic machine that couldn't care less about destroying fetuses. Maybe Hillary is for it and if she is, she must've done a huge backflip on the issue. They want PP funded and I want it defended.

If you liked many of his policies, what differentiation did you make between his "nut job" fans as you called them, and yourself?

Can you point me to GOP plans to increase funding for these "other facilities" that you speak of? Otherwise it sounds more like lip service.

You defend it? Nice reporting.

Why did she wipe the server? If I had to turn over a server with pe3rsonal and business emails to people who are not looking to judge fairly but are looking for anything to use then I would clean all personal email off the server as well. Trust the witch Hunt and you will wind up being a log on the fire.

Yes, due to the Affordable Care Act.

So anyway, back to the topic...

Clinton wasn't supposed to be using a personal email account for SoS business. She did.

Clinton claimed none of her emails contained classified information. If true, then she wasn't doing her job.

Clinton claimed at first that she only deleted her personal emails. By "personal", does she mean the negotiations with major donors to her "charity" about federal government policies they wanted her to influence?

No matter how she tries to redefine "personal", "classified", or even "is", the fact remains that she deleted evidence in an FBI investigation.

Have you wandered "why" Obama is staying out of all this?

This is the best distraction at least for now from his agenda for change which looks more and more like a supporting movement for Muslim awakening (not an Arab awakening) throughout the world.

And Clinton has her own agenda for change which is autocratic and extremely selfish for sure but still undefined.

But of course! "Someone cleaned my server!" "I did not inhale!"
