The Three Dangers of WikiLeaks

Submitted by Robin Messing on Thu, 10/27/2016 - 6:14pm

There is no doubt that the WikiLeaks  release of stolen emails have damaged Hillary Clinton's campaign.  She may be leading Trump in the polls despite the leaks, but she would have a much greater lead had the DNC not been hacked.

But just how much should we rely on the WikiLeaks emails in evaluating whether Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump should become president? There are three points to consider when evaluating the email dumps.

Tom Reed vs. John Plumb: Who has the better plan for fighting ISIS?

Submitted by Robin Messing on Wed, 10/19/2016 - 5:04pm

I wrote a column last August for the Ithaca Journal calling on Congressman Tom Reed to rescind his endorsement of Donald Trump.  I pointed out that Reed had repeatedly criticized his opponent, John Plumb, and President Obama for being soft on Russia and that he could not logically maintain his endorsement of Trump while insisting we resist Russia's aggression in Ukraine.  Reed has yet to rescind his endorsement despite this inconsistency with respect to Russia and despite Trump's bragging about grabbing women by the pussy.

Donald Trump Is An Existential Threat To American Democracy

Donald Trump is an existential threat to our democratic system.  A vote for Donald Trump is a vote for the death of America.  I don't make this claim lightly. Let me explain.

Donald Trump, taxes, and fiduciary responsibility

Submitted by Robin Messing on Sun, 10/02/2016 - 3:17pm

Donald Trump seems to be almost as good at dodging taxes as he was at dodging the draft.  We already knew that Trump paid no federal income taxes in 1978, 1979, and 1984. We also knew that Trump paid $0 or close to $0 in federal income tax in 1991 and 1993.  We should have sympathy for Trump in the early 1990's--he was was having tough times during those years as his casinos were going bankrupt and his creditors forced him to live on only $450,000 a month income.  (That’s right. That’s not a typo.)

Someone, I'll call him "Bill", wrote that he was not sure who was the worse candidate--Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.  I told him:

For God's sake, read some of the stories on my list. They will help you figure out which candidate poses the greater danger. Our country will live through four years of Hillary Clinton. Donald Trump is an existential threat to our country.

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.
