Email Leak Reveals Clinton Ignored Calls for aid From Nigerian Prince


WASHINGTON DC – The latest round of emails released by WikiLeaks reveals that as US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton blatantly ignored a desperate request for aid from a foreign head of state.

In the email, Prince Waseem Attah of Nigeria called Clinton a “DEPENDABLE AND TRUST WORDY FOREIGN PARTNER” and requested assistance in arranging a legal transfer of funds from his country to a US bank account. Server logs show the email was deleted just seconds after being opened.

Congressional leaders were quick to criticize Clinton for the slight. “The Secretary of State is our ambassador to the world”, said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, “Such disrespect for the leaders of other countries weakens our international alliances and strengthens our enemies’ resolve.”

When contacted by email for a comment on Clinton’s handling of the incident, Prince Attah said “SHARING SHALL BE 25% FOR YOU, 85% FOR ME. PLEASE HASTEN UP TO MAKE PROVISIONS” adding “SEND TO ME YOUR TELEPHONE AND FAX NUMBERS TO DISCUSS FURTHER.”

Morning Joke this am! Dean says Trump sniffing because he's on coke!

No link, but offered up during the first 30 minutes this morning. They want Dean to come on and repeat his comment?

Does Dean really know something? Wild speculation? CT?


One thing that could improve...

Obama has said often that globalization started before NAFTA and has continued after NAFTA. Trade agreements are AGREEMENTS...no one country can dictate all the rules. The reasons for loss of jobs is not because of trade agreements, and no trade agreement will "fix" the issues to favor the US simply by putting something on paper.

Hillary (and Tim Kaine this morning) don't seem to be able to discuss international trade as well as Obama even though Trump will continue to bring it up and blame Democrats.

Hillary's plan to deal with companies who voluntarily move out is a good one, but she is not making it a center piece of her message.

Hopefully, there will be time to focus on the "loss of jobs" issue before the next debate. To the Archie Bunker types, they are not interested in details or economic theory...and Trump makes grand claims that are stupid, but they believe him.

I like Obama's discussions of this issue.



HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (The Borowitz Report)—CNN launched an urgent manhunt Monday after Lester Holt, the moderator of the first Presidential debate of the 2016 general election, mysteriously vanished two minutes into the contest.

CNN immediately notified law enforcement, who started searching the environs of Hofstra University, all while Clinton and Trump continued barking at each other unabated.

Jeff Zucker, the president of CNN, issued an impassioned plea to Holt to return to the debate venue at Hofstra as soon as possible. “You don’t even have to moderate the debate,” Zucker said. “We just want to know you’re O.K.”

Do we need a "group" for Trump (and family) scandals and crimes?

Honestly, I can't keep up!

- Malania's illegal immigration and imaginary speech writer
- Killing leopards, elephants, etc. (oh my)
- Bribes to attorney generals
- Foundations that are covers for more bribes
- Trump University
- 13 year old rape victims
- Nobody gets paid if you work for Trump, contract with Trump, or loan money to Trump

...and who knows what I've missed. These are all on top of insanely stupid comments relevant to a political campaign about walls, Iraq, bad generals, Putin, military assaults, birth certificates, tax returns, nutty doctor letters, etc.

If anyone in the US actually votes for this fruitcake they should be locked up with him. It seems like the media is overwhelmed even trying to look into so many "events" at once. I really, really hope Trump regrets the day he ever thought about running for President.

Rick Scott and Pam Bondi are for sale...and always have been...

If the rest of the world are just now discovering it, that's good. Some of us have watched these payoffs for years. The donation from Trump to Bondi was the tip of the iceberg. Who knows how much she really got from the fundraiser that Trump threw for her.

Bondi is exactly the kind of person Trump would put in his administration. No ethics.


Trump Held Fundraiser For Pam Bondi At Mar-a-Lago After She Dropped Investigation
The Republican Party of Florida paid much less for the venue than Trump’s own campaign has paid.

WASHINGTON ― In March 2014, Donald Trump opened his 126-room Palm Beach resort, Mar-a-Lago, for a $3,000-per-person fundraiser for Pam Bondi. The Florida attorney general, who was facing a tough re-election campaign, had recently decided not to investigate Trump University.

Trump did not write a check to the attorney general that night. The previous fall, his personal foundation had given $25,000 to a pro-Bondi PAC. But by hosting her fundraiser at Mar-a-Lago and bringing in some of his own star power, Trump provided Bondi’s campaign with a nice financial boost.

Since he began his run for the White House, Trump has repeatedly claimed that Bondi is merely someone he has supported politically. But his fundraising efforts for her were extensive and varied: In addition to the $25,000 donation from his foundation and the star-studded Mar-a-Lago event, Trump and his daughter Ivanka each gave $500 to Bondi’s campaign in the fall of 2013. The following spring, Ivanka and her father donated another $125,000 to the Republican Party of Florida ― Bondi’s single biggest source of campaign funds.

Florida after the hurricane...
