Wasserman Schultz announced her resignation in a statement Sunday afternoon, saying she remains committed to seeing Clinton elected president.

Clinton's campaign manager: Russia helping Trump | 24 July 2016 | Hillary Clinton's campaign manager is alleging that Russian hackers are leaking Democratic National Committee emails critical of Bernie Sanders in an effort to help Donald Trump win the election in November. It comes on the heels of "changes to the Republican platform to make it more pro-Russian," Robby Mook told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union" Sunday. "I don't think it's coincidental that these emails were released on the eve of our convention here, and I think that's disturbing," he said.

DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz under pressure to resign | 24 July 2016 | Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz will not have a major speaking role or preside over daily convention proceedings this week, a decision reached by party officials Saturday after emails surfaced raising questions about the committee's impartiality during the Democratic primary.

She will gavel each session to order and will gavel each session closed. "She's been quarantined," another top Democrat said of Wasserman Schultz, following a meeting Saturday night. Wasserman Schultz faced intense pressure Sunday to resign her post as head of the Democratic National Committee, several party leaders told CNN, urging her to quell a growing controversy threatening to disrupt Hillary Clinton's nominating convention.

The Death of Wilson: How the Academic Left Created Donald Trump | 18 July 2016 | Why should a minimum wage retail worker think they somehow immorally benefit by dint of blue eyes and pale skin? Why should they listen to some bohemian asshole who’s both morally and intellectually self-righteous? Why shouldn’t they feel aggrieved on all sides, economically and culturally disenfranchised?

DNC chair won't speak at Dem convention following WikiLeaks fallout | 23 July 2016 | The head of the Democratic National Committee [Debbie Wasserman Schultz] will not speak at the party's convention next week, a decision reached by party officials Saturday after emails surfaced that raised questions about the committee's impartiality during the Democratic primary.

One email appears to show DNC staffers asking how they can reference Bernie Sanders's faith to weaken him in the eyes of Southern voters. Another seems to depict an attorney advising the committee on how to defend Hillary Clinton against an accusation by the Sanders campaign of not living up to a joint fundraising agreement.

Munich shooting: Attacker researched rampage killings, police say | 23 July 2016 | The teen gunman who killed nine people in a shooting rampage in Munich on Friday was a mentally troubled individual who had extensively researched spree killings and had no apparent links to ISIS, police said.

Rather, investigators searching his belongings found numerous documents on rampage killings, including a book entitled "Rampage in My Mind -- Why Students Kill," said Robert Heimberger, president of the Bavarian State Criminal Police Office.

Mexican President SLAMS Trump, Compares Him to Hitler and Mussolini | 29 June 2016 | Sometimes, it seems like the who world is out to get Donald Trump - and that's why so many Americans like him in the first place. Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto compared Donald Trump to Hitler and Mussolini today at the North American Leaders Summit Meeting in Ottawa, Canada. Nieto does not like Trump's promise to build a wall and clamp down on illegal immigrants and his announcement yesterday that Trump would renegotiate NAFTA.

Ex-New York Official Rejects Trump's Golf Course Claim: 'It's Simply Not True'

July 23, 2016 by walden9

Ex-New York Official Rejects Trump's Golf Course Claim: 'It's Simply Not True' | 22 July 2016 | Just before Donald J. Trump took the stage at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland on Thursday night, the actor Jon Voight narrated a breezy video biography of the candidate highlighting his can-do abilities. "He took over another city project tied up in red tape since 1978," Mr. Voight says with none of the charm or the menace of his character on Showtime's "Ray Donovan" series. "Donald transformed a landfill into a championship public golf course and saved the city millions." But it was a shot into the rough for Mr. Voight and Mr. Trump's oft-told creation myth of the Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point in the Bronx.

MH370 Pilot Flew a Suicide Route on His Home Simulator Closely Matching Final Flight | 22 July 2016 | New York has obtained a confidential document from the Malaysian police investigation into the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 that shows that the plane's captain, Zaharie Ahmad Shah, conducted a simulated flight deep into the remote southern Indian Ocean less than a month before the plane vanished under uncannily similar circumstances. The revelation, which Malaysia withheld from a lengthy public report on the investigation, is the strongest evidence yet that Zaharie made off with the plane in a premeditated act of mass murder-suicide. The document presents the findings of the Malaysian police's investigation into Zaharie.

Clinton Picks TPP Supporter Kaine as VP in Move Toward Center for Election | 22 July 2016 | Hillary Clinton named Virginia Senator Tim Kaine as her running mate for the Democratic presidential ticket, a widely-anticipated choice that may say more about how she wants to govern than how she plans to win in November. Clinton made the announcement Friday in a text message to supporters. Kaine, 58, a white Catholic from a battleground state who's fluent in Spanish, is a safe choice for the woman who will this week become the first-ever female presidential nominee of a major U.S. political party. He's also a supporter of free trade, including the Trans-Pacific Partnership [corporate takeover] that President Barack Obama's administration negotiated with 11 other nations, and which awaits ratification in Congress.

At Least 9 Dead in 'Possible Terror Attack' at Munich Mall, Suspect Believed Dead | 22 July 2016 |  At least nine people are dead and at least 10 are injured, following what police have described as a "possible terror attack" at the Olympia-Einkaufszentrum shopping mall in Munich, Germany. The Munich Police said in tweets that they've found someone connected to the attack who killed himself and there’s a high probability he acted alone. Earlier, police said that witnesses called to report three people with guns on a nearby street who later moved toward the mall. They also said earlier that they found the ninth body about a half-mile from the mall, but it is unclear whether it is that of an attacker mentioned in the most recent tweet.

July 22, 2016 by legitgov

Virginia court invalidates Gov. Terry McAuliffe's order restoring felon voting rights | 22 July 2016 | The Supreme Court of Virginia has ruled against Gov. Terry McAuliffe's order restoring voting rights to more than 200,000 felons who completed their sentences, a decision that dealt a major blow to the Democratic governor and has implications for the November presidential race in the crucial swing state. In a 4-3 ruling issued Friday, the court ruled that McAuliffe overstepped his clemency powers under the state constitution by issuing a sweeping order in April restoring rights to all ex-offenders who are no longer incarcerated or on probation or parole. The court agreed with state Republicans who challenge McAuliffe's order, arguing voting rights should be restored on a case-by-case basis.

The officers in charge of beach first-aid centres and their deputies will now carry guns in sand-proof holsters, specially designed for use with beachwear.

Tim Kaine, Outspoken Advocate of the TPP, Seems Likely for Hillary Clinton's No. 2 | 21 July 2016 | Democrats close to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign signaled strongly Thursday that she would choose Senator Tim Kaine of Virginia as her running mate, rounding out the ticket with a popular politician from a battleground state...Liberals say they are concerned about Mr. Kaine's positions on global trade deals and Wall Street regulation. He has been an outspoken advocate of free trade and has defended the North American Free Trade Agreement, which many voters in Rust Belt states blame for the loss of manufacturing jobs to Mexico.

Two others under consideration, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and Labor Secretary Thomas E.

Hours Before Hillary Clinton's VP Decision, Likely Pick Tim Kaine Praises the TPP

July 22, 2016 by legitgov

Hours Before Hillary Clinton's VP Decision, Likely Pick Tim Kaine Praises the TPP | 21 July 2016 | Hillary Clinton's rumored vice presidential pick Sen. Tim Kaine defended his vote for fast-tracking the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) on Thursday. Kaine, who spoke to The Intercept after an event at a Northern Virginia mosque, praised the agreement as an improvement of the status quo, but maintained that he had not yet decided how to vote on final approval of the agreement. By contrast, Hillary Clinton has qualified her previous encouragement of the agreement, and now says she opposes it. Kaine's measured praise of the agreement could signal one of two things. Either he is out of the running for the vice presidential spot, as his position on this major issue stands in opposition to hers. Or, by picking him, Clinton is signaling that her newly declared opposition to the agreement is not sincere.

His Tone Dark, Donald Trump Takes G.O.P. Mantle | 21 July 2016 | Donald John Trump accepted the Republican presidential nomination on Thursday night with an unusually vehement appeal to Americans who feel that their country is spiraling out of control and yearn for a leader who will take aggressive, even extreme, actions to protect them. Mr. Trump, 70, a New York real estate developer and reality television star who leveraged his fame and forceful persona to become the rare political outsider to lead the ticket of a major party, drew exuberant cheers from Republican convention delegates as he strode onto the stage of the Quicken Loans Arena and delivered a speech as fiery as his candidacy.  Mr. Trump also challenged Republican orthodoxy as he promised to end multilateral trade deals and limit American intervention in global crises. He denounced "15 years of wars in the Middle East" -- a rebuke of his party's last president [sic], George W. Bush -- and pledged to help union members, coal miners and other low-wage Americans who have historically supported Democrats.

Melania Trump's Speechwriter Comes Forward to Apologize | 20 July 2016 | An in-house writer and longtime friend of the Trump family has stepped forward with an apology for her involvement in the preparation of Melania Trump's address at the Republican National Convention Monday night, which bore similarities to a 2008 Michelle Obama speech. Staffer Meredith McIver said she submitted her resignation Tuesday but the Trump family rejected it. "A person she [Melania] has always liked is Michelle Obama. Over the phone, she read me some passages from Mrs. Obama’s speech as examples. I wrote them down and later included some of the phrasing in the draft that ultimately became the final speech," McIver said in a statement, released this afternoon and written under Trump Organization letterhead. "This was my mistake, and I feel terrible for the chaos I have caused Melania and the Trumps, as well as Mrs. Obama..."
