Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton's Medical History

Hillary Clinton's Medical History

 

Trump supporters have been pushing a meme recently that Hillary Clinton has epilepsy, Alzheimer's, or some similar disease.  Rudy Giuliani promoted these medical rumors when he said,  “Go online and put down ‘Hillary Clinton illness,’ take a look at the videos for yourself.”  

That's an interesting way of diagnosing Hillary's medical condition.  Just for fun, go to Google and type in "Rudy Giuliani child molestor" and see what comes up.

Donald Trump: On assassination, incitement, and loose tongues

By now you've probably heard about how Trump apparently called for Hillary Clinton's assassination if she appoints Supreme Court Justices who favor gun control.

Did Donald Trump Blackmail Roger Ailes?

Gretchen Carlson is suing Fox News Director Roger Ailes for quid pro quo sexual harassment.  She claims that he fired her because she refused to sleep with him.    Unfortunately for Ailes, New York Magazine columnist Gabriel Sherman wrote that at least 6 more women have stepped forward  accusing him of sexual harassment or attempted rape.

An Open Letter to Cornel West, James Zogby, and the Democratic National Convention Platform Committee

Dear Drs. West and Zogby,

Thank you for your magnificent job in trying to convince your fellow platform writers to embrace a more balanced approach to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Unfortunately, your arguments did not persuade your fellow committee members and the national security of both Israel and the U.S. are endangered by their failure to heed your advice.  While your questions were powerful and accurate, there were a number of points that you did not raise that should be considered when deciding whether to acknowledge that Palestinians live under occupation. I therefore provide the following analysis in the hopes that it will help you convince your fellow platform committee members to modify the current draft recommendations on Israel and Palestine and to take a more balanced approach.  

Donald Trump's Achilles' Heel

Donald Trump's Achilles' heel is this: He is not worth nearly as much as he claims to be. I've been thinking about this for a while. It explains why he is such a charity cheapskate.

Did Sheldon Adelson buy Donald Trump???

Do you remember when Donald Trump said he was so rich he can't be bought?

This was a great point of pride for Trump when he announced in June 2015 that he was running for President.

I don't need anybody's money. It's nice. I don't need anybody's money.

I'm using my own money. I'm not using the lobbyists. I'm not using donors. I don't care. I'm really rich. 

Most Moral Army In the World???: The Death of a "Terrorist"

An Israeli solder shot and killed Abed Fatah al Sharif, a Palestinian "terrorist" last week in Hebron.  (The soldier's name has been kept secret under a gag order within Israel, but he has been identified in the Western media as Elor Azarya) That a soldier shot a "terrorist" in the West Bank is hardly news.  But this shooting was different.  It was caught on high definition video, and the "terrorist" was helpless  at the time he was shot.  See for yourself.

On Israel, Free Speech, and UN Censorship

Those who read this blog probably know I'm not a big fan of Israel or its propaganda (hasbara).  I despise the settlements and the apartheid regime in the West Bank.  I dislike that Palestinians are treated like second class citizens even within the Green Line.  And I loathe how Israel and its supporters tried to sucker us into an unnecessary war with Iran by doing everything they could to sabotage the nuclear deal.
