Hillary Clinton promises steady hand in dangerous world | 28 July 2016 | Promising Americans a steady hand, Hillary Clinton cast herself Thursday night as a unifier for divided times, an experienced leader steeled for a volatile world. She aggressively challenged Republican Donald Trump's ability to do the same. Clinton took the stage to roaring applause from flag-waving delegates on the final night of the Democratic convention, relishing her nomination as the first woman to lead a major U.S. political party. Clinton's four-day convention began with efforts to shore up liberals who backed Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary and it ended with an outstretched hand to Republicans and independents unnerved by Trump.

July 28, 2016 by walden9

Donald Trump Calls on Russia to Find Hillary Clinton's Missing Emails | 27 July 2016 | If Mr. Trump is serious in his call for Russian hacking or exposing Mrs. Clinton's emails, he would be urging a power often hostile to the United States to violate American law by breaking into a private computer network. He would also be contradicting the Republican platform, adopted last week in Cleveland, saying that cyberespionage "will not be tolerated," and promising to "respond in kind and in greater magnitude" to all Chinese and Russian cyberattacks.

Sanders supporters to mount silent protest against Obama over his trade deal during his DNC speech instead of shouting him down over concerns it would come off as racially charged | 27 July 2016 | Bernie Sanders supporters will silently protest the president's trade deal corporate takeover tonight during his speech at the Democratic National Convention. Sanders supporters told DailyMail.com that they would hold up signs indicating their displeasure with the Trans-Pacific Partnership during President Barack Obama's remarks. They also plan to repurpose the inflatables - the letter 'O' of Obama - that are being distributed for use during the president's speech to display anti-TPP messages. A plan to shout down the president over the trade agreement that Sanders pegged as 'disastrous' was scrapped by three delegations amid concerns the protest would be viewed through a racial prism.

Julian Assange: 'A lot more material' coming on US elections | 26 July 2016 | WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said Tuesday his whistleblowing website might release "a lot more material" relevant to the US electoral campaign.

Trump: Claim That Russia Hacked DNC to Help Him Is a 'Joke'

Trump: Claim That Russia Hacked DNC to Help Him Is a 'Joke' | 25 July 2016 | Donald Trump said Monday that any suggestion the Russians hacked and leaked Democratic Party emails on his behalf is a "joke." The timing of the embarrassing leak on the eve of the Democratic National Convention put fresh attention on relations between Trump and Russian president Vladimir Putin, who have praised each other, and on close ties between key members of Trump's inner circle and Russian businesses and officials. Hillary Clinton's campaign manager alleged over the weekend that the leak was designed to help Trump after his campaign operatives [thankfully] pushed changes to the Republican convention platform "to make it more pro-Russian" - reportedly removing language in support of sanctions for Russia and new weapons for [the Nazis running] Ukraine. In a tweet, Trump scoffed at the notion, writing, "The new joke in town is that Russia leaked the disastrous DNC e-mails, which should never have been written (stupid), because Putin likes me."
