Clinton, from the debate: "And yes, the economy is rigged in favor of those at the top."

Hillary Clinton’s net worth is $31.3 million.
Our Hillary Clinton net worth number comes from analyzing her 2015 U.S. Public Financial Disclosure Reports.
Bill Clinton has an estimated net worth of $80 million.
That gives a combined Bill and Hillary Clinton net worth of $111 million dollars.

U.S. presidential candidates aren’t required to reveal their exact net worth, so Hillary Clinton’s net worth is only available within a range.
That means learning Hillary Clinton’s net worth can only be done by averaging out her reported min and max figures.

In May of 2015, Hillary Clinton reported net worth assets of at least $10,830,007 and at most $51.7 million.
Mrs. Clinton did not report any real estate or debts.
If the Clintons do own property or debts, it’s all in Bill Clinton’s name.
Placing assets and liabilities in Bill’s name would mean they wouldn’t be reported as part of Hillary Clinton’s net worth.

Hillary Clinton net worth vs Bernie Sanders net worth: 59 times larger.

Roh-oh...Clinton Foundation received subpoena from State Department investigators

Investigators with the State Department issued a subpoena to the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation last fall seeking documents about the charity’s projects that may have required approval from the federal government during Hillary Clinton’s term as secretary of state, according to people familiar with the subpoena and written correspondence about it.

The subpoena also asked for records related to Huma Abedin, a longtime Clinton aide who for six months in 2012 was employed simultaneously by the State Department, the foundation, Clinton’s personal office, and a private consulting firm with ties to the Clintons.

I have been really curious about that last bit about Abedin, but until now had to no idea he was doing FOUR Clinton related jobs all at the same time.


Sounds horrible......"Firefox can deliver on-screen notifications even when that site isn’t loaded"

Why would I want this feature ???

Starting with version 44, Firefox can deliver on-screen notifications even when that site isn’t loaded. Using the Push API, a W3C standard, Firefox receives a push message and can show notifications (if permitted by the user) at any time.

Sites can also use Push to update data in the background even without showing you a notification.

If you already gave permission to a site to send notifications, the site will also be able to use the Push API.

You can choose whether or not to give permission for a site to send you notifications by following these instructions:

City of Cleveland says Tamir Rice died because he failed "to exercise due care to avoid injury."

then sends grieving family the bill for the ambulance that the police called.

First, a Cleveland police officer shot and killed 12-year-old Tamir Rice as he played with a toy pellet gun in a public park.

Then the city said the boy's death was his own fault.

And now Cleveland has charged the Rice family for his final ambulance ride.

That latest development, coming on Wednesday nearly 15 months after Tamir's death, stirred up fresh outrage -- not just from his family, but from the Cleveland police union that's fought them tooth and nail to clear the officers involved in the shooting.

"Subodh Chandra and I have never agreed on anything until now," police union President Steve Loomis told CNN affiliate WJW, referring to the Rice family's lawyer. "It is unconscionable that the city of Cleveland would send that bill to the Rice family.

Pretty impressive credentials in producer and screenwriter.

Clinton allies forming group to protect, register voters

This is the entire story:


MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Allies of Hillary Clinton are forming a new $25 million political organization that aims to expand voter protection and drive turnout and registration among Latino and black voters. Those voters will be essential to her Democratic presidential campaign.

The new group is called Every Citizen Counts. It's beginning its work as Clinton faces a stronger-than-expected challenge from Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who won an overwhelming victory in Tuesday's New Hampshire primary. Sanders is hoping to build support among black and Hispanic voters who have been loyal to Clinton.

Organizers say the group will not be involved in the primaries. It will be advised by Guy Cecil, a former Clinton campaign staffer who runs Democratic super PAC Priorities USA Action. Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, a Clinton supporter, is also involved.

Martin Shkreli has a new problem: Artist sues over portraits on $2-million Wu-Tang Clan album

The former drug company executive’s one-of-a-kind, US$2 million Wu-Tang Clan album includes nine portraits of the rap group’s founding members used without permission, according to a complaint filed Tuesday in Manhattan federal court.
The artist, Jason Koza, has sued Shkreli, record producers Robert “RZA” Diggs and Tarik “Cilvaringz” Azzougarh, and Paddle8, the online auction startup hired to sell the album.

Koza, an artist and musician in Copiague, New York, claims he created portraits of each of the group’s founders for the fan website WuDisciples.blogspot.com in late 2013 and early 2014 but never agreed to their use in the 174-page book that accompanied the album, “Once Upon a Time in Shaolin.”

He says that on Jan. 29 he saw an article published by Vice.com including photos of three of his Wu-Tang Clan portraits: “Raekwon-Koza,” “Inspecta Deck-Koza” and “Ol’ Dirty B–tard-Koza.” He claims he applied for registration with the U.S. Copyright Office on Feb. 1, and that Shkreli infringed his rights by allowing the three portraits to be publicly displayed.

Koza is seeking unspecified damages from Diggs, Azzougarh, Paddle8 and Shkreli for infringing copyright and from Diggs, Azzougarh and Paddle8 for violating an implied contract with the artist. .

Cruz may not be legally a Senator, much less a Pres. candidate.

Canada did not recognize dual citizenship in 1970 when Cruz was born in Alberta.

The only way Cruz could have been a US citizen was if his mother had filed a document called a Consular Report of Birth Abroad.
Cruz has never admitted to having that document.
This is the legal equivalent of a US Birth Certificate and Cruz either has one from the time of his birth or he does not.
If he does not then he is not a US Citizen as he was never naturalized by his own admission
and at birth the nation in which he was born did not recognize dual nationality.

With 2 Canadian parents, and being born in Canada in 1970 when Canada did not recognize dual citizen citizenship, he was born Canadian and is not a natural born citizen.

In order to run for US Senate, you have to be a US citizen for 9 years.
Cruz ran for US Senate in 2012.
In 2014, he renounced his Canadian citizenship.thus admitting he WAS a Canadian citizen when he was born.

UPDATE:
I have edited to reflect that his father was a citizen of Cuba until 1973, when he became a Canadian citizen ( and later an American citizen in 2005)
and his mother's available voting record was from 1974 BUT the Canadian process for being on the voting registration requires a person to affirm they ARE citizens of Canada, which is then checked by the Voting Registrar.
