    2016 Election Tag

    During the 2016 campaign, there had been a lot of social media speculation about Hillary Clinton's health. That speculation was ridiculed as conspiracy theories and fake news. But when Hillary stumbled and almost fell during the 9/11 memorial, the conspiracy theories didn't seem so conspiratorial anymore. We all remember the infamous video, Clinton Collapse: Hillary rushed away from 9-11 ceremony:

    It's hard to find an apt comparison in U.S. media for the role that Haaretz plays in Israeli media. Haaretz is "far-left" in its opinion content, but also has some excellent straight news reporting, particularly on security issues. And when I say "far-left," I emphasize "far" in that equation. Reading some of Haaretz's opinion columnists makes it hard to distinguish the paper from anti-Israel Islamist polemicists. Haaretz has little readership in Israel precisely because it has tied its fortunes to the marginalized Israeli left. But Haaretz's English language website has outsized influence in the West, particularly among left-wing Jews in the U.S., who must imagine Haaretz represents a sustantial portion of the Israeli electorate.

    Failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton appeared on NPR's Fresh Air to plug her memoir What Happened. She told host Terry Gross that would not rule out questioning the legitimacy of the 2016 presidential election if more proof comes out that Russia did meddle in the election. Former FBI James Comey also comes up in the conversation and yes, Hillary pointed the finger at him...again.

    Music to our ears! Failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton told CBS Sunday Morning that she is through with being a candidate:
    Clinton says her career as an active politician is over but says she will stay involved politically. "I am done with being a candidate. But I am not done with politics because I literally believe that our country's future is at stake," she said.

    People have leaked excerpts from failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's memoir What Happened, which will be released on September 12. In these excerpts, Hillary lashes out at her primary opponent Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for his actions, which she claims caused "lasting damage" to the party due to his numerous attacks on her.

    A report from Politico shows that national security officials warned former President Barack Obama of Russian interference in Western political systems, including the United States. Politico reported:
    As early as 2014, the administration received a report that quoted a well-connected Russian source as saying that the Kremlin was building a disinformation arm that could be used to interfere in Western democracies. The report, according to an official familiar with it, included a quote from the Russian source telling U.S. officials in Moscow, "You have no idea how extensive these networks are in Europe ... and in the U.S., Russia has penetrated media organizations, lobbying firms, political parties, governments and militaries in all of these places."

    I appeared this morning on the Sandy Rios in the Morning on American Family Radio. I've appeared on Sandy's show before, and I appreciate that she gives me plenty of time. The segment is 30 minutes long. We talked about several topics, all surrounding Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and Trump's related frustration with Attorney General Jeff Sessions for recusing himself from anything related to Russia. Trump's continuing Twitter dressing down of Sessions and rumors Sessions and/or Mueller would be fired, were discussed. In the course of the discussion we touched on the following posts of mine:
