FBI Says It Takes Risk of Hackers Swaying Election Seriously – Bloomberg Politics

The two players in this game of Espionage are China and Russia. Donald Trump owes Millions to China and has some weird love affair with President Putin in Russia. So if there’s going to be some raking of the election it’s going to be in Donald Trump favor. I’m not a conspiracy theorist but when the FBI says they’re worried I get worried. I think that Trump has been stoking the fire bring the elections so that when it happens he will look less likely to be a culprit.

‘It was just chaos’: Broken machines, incomplete voter rolls leave some wondering whether their ballots will count – LA Times

I wrote about my own experiences voting yesterday in the California primary. I received a lot of blow back from what I had written. One person actually wrote that what I wrote was BS. I kind of feel Vindicated by the story in the Los Angeles Times. It was a mess for me and my neighbors who voted in our Precinct. It seems that for some reason there was some computer glitch that made us all mail-in only voters. I had to vote provisionally, the first time I’ve ever voted that way.
As some of you may know I ran unsuccessfully for neighborhood Council. Two close friends of mine called me the day after the election to tell me they had just received their credentials. They emailed me the notification from the Department of Elections of Los Angeles County. I’m working with others to put a plan together to present to Los Angeles County because this cannot go on.

Donald Trump’s Campaign Stumbles as It Tries to Go Big – NYTimes

So far, Trump has been as good at running presidential campaign as he has been in his so many failed and bankrupt businesses. To this day he does not have a communications director. He just fired one of his top aides because they had a disagreement about how the campaign was being run. He has yet to Pivot to what one would call a presidential persona and is still inciting people to hurt demonstrators in his rallies. I don’t think he understands that he’s running for the president of all the United States and it’s supposed to be representing everyone’s ideas. He only thinks about Trump , as any good narcissist would do. The RNC is worried about what he’s going to do to the 6,000 down ticket candidates running as Republicans in
Down ticket from him in November.
I do not think that this man has the temperament order personality to be the president of the United States.

Rachel Maddow explains what it took for Hillary Clinton to be in compliance with State Department email rules

Along with the news that I’m sure you’ve already heard saying that Hillary Clinton did not meet the requirements for email storage after she left office there is something that Rachel Maddow points out.
Here is how it works.
For every email that the Secretary of State since she was to print it and put it in a box. For every email that the Secretary of State received she was supposed to print it and put it in a box. As you can imagine this creates a lot of paper. In this photo Rachel shows the paper produced in 3 days of emails that were received and sent by her. And she is not the Secretary of State.

If you were asked to do this at your job you would say no. And you did not have to travel to  157 countries over the course of 4 years, unless John Kerry is reading this. The state department admits that it’s system is Antiquated and has actually produced 3000 boxes of unfiled emails to and from the various Secretary of States since 1997. Now I understand that these emails are not in any way sorted. There is no index and there’s no way to search through them. The state department says that by the end of this year they will have an off-the-shelf product that will back up the emails. But until that happens this weird system which only Rachel Maddow had the journalistic Integrity to report is what has caused all these issues for Hillary Clinton. They are fabricated issues and I hope more journalists take Rachel’s lead and tells the story The Way It Is.
A lot of people on television and in opinion pieces have said that Hillary Clinton has taken a blase attitude about this email situation. If I were in her shoes I would be so tired of this stupid rule of her having to print out every email she received and sent out I would to be rolling my eyes the way she does.

State Dept. says it has no emails from ex-Clinton staffer – The Washington Post

This information comes from a court filing in a lawsuit that the RNC brought against the state department. It turns out that her age only sent her one email which said happy birthday Madam secretary. She did not reply directly instead asked that a staffer please respond. Of course Republican heads are blowing up everywhere about this.
Enough about the servers and the emails and let’s get on with getting her in the White House.

Hillary Clinton is going to be exonerated on the email controversy. It won’t matter. Washington Post

Secretaries of State Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice and Madeleine Albright, to name a few, all have had personal email servers in their homes. It was standard practice until someone heard that Hillary Clinton did it and all the sudden it became a major crime. Even our current Secretary of Defense admitted last month that he had a email server at home and because of the brouhaha over Hillary Clinton’s servers he took his out. Witch hunts are witch hunts.

The GOP Gets What It Deserves

If one were to believe his hype Donald J Trump invented America first. In fact a rampant anti-semite named Lindberg, yes the guy who flew across the ocean, started the movement in the 19 thirties to bolster Hitler’s regime and make sure that the United States would not go into war defending England and France. Lindbergh later said that he saw no reason why America should go and try to save Jews that were being massacred during the Holocaust. So America first is a slogan that Rings badly in my ears. And the more Trump says it the more he becomes the Neo-Nazi I know he is.

It Will Be Easy To Establish Democratic Party Unity

As much as Bernie Sanders supporters will say that they will never vote for Hillary Clinton in the end they will. Comparing the Democrats the Republicans is like comparing apples and bananas. There is going to be a decisive winner of the democratic nomination not so much on the Republican side. You add in the fact that the three candidates and I include John Kasich in this have draconian views of how to run our country. Lower the taxes for the rich and take away as many of the safety net programs for the poor is how they look at our country in the future.
The Democrats will keep on the path that President Obama has started and continue our economies flourishing. So in the end there will be no choice but to vote for Hillary Clinton. Sitting out the election after listening to what the Republican nominee will say during debates and commercials will be impossible for Bernie Sanders supporters.
I have said this repeatedly, I would vote for whomever the Democratic party nominates.

Hillary Clinton will consider picking another woman for VP. Could it be Elizabeth Warren? – The Washington Post

If Secretary of State Clinton pics Elizabeth Warren to be her running mate it will make it difficult for Bernie Sanders supporters not to vote for this ticket. This would be a stroke of Genius and I hope that it is one of the options that the Secretary of State is considering. Sources within her campaign have said that she is seriously considering another woman to be her running mate.
