Black Brooklyn teen shot by cops in 2013 was surrendering (video)

It may not have been a justified shooting after all.

The police shooting of a Brooklyn teen nearly three years ago is now being compared with that of Tamir Rice — after surveillance video reveals the 15-year-old posed no threat at the time.

McConnell Comment on TPP Ends Obama’s Chance to Close Deal

This is being done to help out Donald Trump’s chances in the Fall. TPP is unpopular with the American people. That’s why both Trump and Clinton have said they are against it, right now. But you can expect either candidate to flip-flop on the issue and support it once they come into office. That’s what happened to Obama. He denounced free trade agreements back in 2008. But has been pushing for TPP with great vigor throughout his presidency.

The Senate will not vote on the Trans-Pacific Partnership this year because of “serious flaws” in the agreement, Majority LeaderMitch McConnell told a farm group, effectively ending President Barack Obama’s drive for congressional approval before he leaves office in January.Obama has touted the 12-nation agreement as an ambitious undertaking that he hoped would be the centerpiece of his trade legacy.

Clinton Campaign Desperately Attacks Press after Clinton Foundation Revelations

Hillary is feeling the heat. So she and her henchmen have turned to attacking the press for reporting on the Clinton Foundation scandal. The problem is that the press will not pursue this story they way they’ve pursued Donald Trump. This is a scandal that should have been reported on years ago. The Clinton Foundation is an illegal money laundering operation. So even when the press is not 100% fawning over the Clintons they are attacked by people who have lots to hide. It’s up to the people’s press (including Wikileaks) to keep the pressure on the Clinton crime machine. This will force the mainstream press to do it’s job.

Trump, Clinton ‘Have Not Earned Our Vote,’ says Jill Stein

“People are being thrown under the bus and they’re tired of it,” Stein said. “They’re tired of a rigged economy, and they’re tired of a rigged political system.”

…”All the reasons people were told to vote for the lesser evil, because you didn’t want the offshoring of our jobs, you didn’t want the massive bailouts for Wall Street. You didn’t want the endless expanding wars, the attack on immigrants. That’s actually what we’ve gotten,” she said.

Firms Paid Bill Clinton Millions As They Lobbied Hillary Clinton

Former President Bill Clinton accepted more than $2.5 million in speaking fees from 13 major corporations and trade associations that lobbied the U.S. State Department while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, an International Business Times investigation has found. The fees were paid directly to the former president, and not directed to his philanthropic foundation.

Hillary Clinton’s ‘Colin Powell did it’ defense of her email practices is just plain wrong

The attempt to — again — equate what Powell did with what Clinton did is yet more evidence that either the candidate, her senior advisers or both simply don’t get it. No, Clinton wasn’t indicted by the Justice Department for her email setup. But she was badly reprimanded by FBI Director James Comey for her email practices; it was an unequivocal condemnation of her conduct in relation to her approach to electronic communications while serving as the country’s top diplomat.

For whatever reason — and despite the fact that Clinton has said on several occasions that she knows she made a mistake — she seems incapable of accepting that responsibility and moving on. No secretary of state — up to and including Colin Powell — handled their email setup like Clinton. That’s a fact.

Judge orders Clinton to answer questions on email use

A federal judge has ordered Hillary Clinton to answer questions in writing from a conservative legal advocacy group about her use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state. U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan issued the order Friday as part of a long-running public records lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch. The judge’s decision is only a partial victory for the group, which had sought to question the Democratic presidential nominee in person and under oath.
