Hollywood Helps Fuel Election Mischief


Some big-name Hollywood celebrities along with political pouters of all persuasions recently joined forces with 2016’s Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in hopes of pulling off an election redo.

Although President-elect Donald Trump won a decisive victory in the 2016 presidential election, many of Hillary’s supporters and those in her Hollywood fan base are stubbornly refusing to accept the election results.

However, prior to the election Trump was actually derided by his opponent as well as those on the left who thought he might be the one to contest the election results or fail to come to terms with what was believed by the mainstream media and a majority of the Democrats to be an inevitable Hillary win.

Democrats Begin All-out Assault on James Comey

In December of 1996, James Carville, who was the campaign manager for then-President Bill Clinton, announced plans to launch an all-out media war against Kenneth Starr.

Starr was the independent counsel looking into, among other things, Clinton’s sexual involvement with a 22-year-old White House intern and his sworn testimony provided during a deposition in the Paula Jones lawsuit.

The investigation headed by Starr led to the eventual impeachment of the 42nd President of the United States.

Amid the heat of the political drama, Carville, as well as various other White House staffers, took to the broadcast and cable news airwaves to personally denounce Starr.

Social Media Involvement Hits Record Highs in Second Presidential Debate

The presidential election campaign of 2016 is certainly one for the record books, and as it turns out so too is social media’s involvement in the second presidential debate.

Sunday’s second of three debates between Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was co-moderated by ABC’s Martha Raddatz and CNN’s Anderson Cooper and took place in a town hall format.

In addition to questions emanating from the moderators, queries for the candidates came from individuals in social media circles as well as citizen participants (selected by the Gallup organization).

Social Media Will Pick the Presidential Debate Winner


Here is the unvarnished truth: Social media is set to play an unprecedented role in the upcoming presidential debates between Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and Republican candidate Donald Trump.

The televised political match-ups will undoubtedly reach an audience the size of which has never been seen before in the history of presidential debates.

Trump has already proven to be a ratings magnet in the GOP primary debates and fifteen million people tuned in to the “Commander in Chief Forum” hosted by Matt Lauer, which was, in effect a “preseason” debate event.

Latest FBI Document Dump Poses Danger for the Clinton Campaign


The recently released FBI report, which provided more details on Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server and email malpractice, looks more and more as if it will ultimately spell trouble for the Democratic presidential nominee.

In still yet another apparent attempt to avoid media coverage, a document dump took place on the Friday evening that preceded the long Labor Day weekend. Mixed in with the report’s scandalous jigsaw puzzle pieces was a document detailing the agency’s July interview with the former secretary of state.

Hacker Door Opened Wide by Hillary


Reports circulating in recent days indicate that the computers of 3 Democratic Party institutions have been hacked: the Democratic National Committee (DNC), the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), and the campaign files of Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

The said cyber-attacks relate to the unprecedented political scandal in which Hillary has been embroiled throughout her primary campaign; that being, the violation of federal law through the use of an unsecured private server that contained classified information.

Hillary’s use of an unprotected home server essentially opened wide a portal for digital thieves to surreptitiously cart away massive amounts of data, which were housed in various computers that existed to service Democratic Party institutions and affiliated individuals.

More Headaches for Hillary


The pressure is on big-time this week for Hillary Clinton and all of her political, media, and special interest cohorts.

As the Democratic National Committee readies itself to lower its opening gavel at the 2016 Democratic National Convention, WikiLeaks, the controversial organization that routinely publishes tidbits of previously undisclosed information, is priming the anti-establishment pump.

The convention is set to take place July 25-28 at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA.

Interestingly, while party officials, public speakers, and event planners were working overtime, WikiLeaks was living up to its name. Just last Friday the group let 20,000 emails dribble out. The digital communications purportedly had DNC origins.

The Democrat Wall of Hypocrisy


One of the key issues that Donald Trump has brought to light during his presidential campaign run is the need for a wall at the southern border in order to bolster national security and ensure the safety and welfare of our country’s people.

That a nation must have in place a framework with which it can regulate the ingress and egress of individuals across its territorial boundaries is fundamental to the notion of sovereignty and has traditionally been a sound practice of virtually every country in the world.

Matt Damon and Susan Sarandon Play Polar Opposites


It would be hard to dispute that both Matt Damon and Susan Sarandon are bona fide members of the Hollywood left.

However, the political leanings of the movie stars are presently going in two sharply different directions.

Damon has made it clear that he stands solidly behind Hillary Clinton’s candidacy for president, while Sarandon is a passionate supporter of Bernie Sanders’s presidential run.

The divergent views of the two celebrities illustrate the very real and expanding rift that now exists within the predominantly liberal Hollywood community and the current base of the Democratic Party.

Bernie Sanders Slams Hillary for Clooney Fundraiser


The Bernie Sanders campaign has found a new wedge issue in the head to head contest with Hillary Clinton for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination: the massive amounts of cash that Hillary receives from Hollywood’s biggest bundlers and donors.

After the Sanders campaign derided the Vermont senator’s opponent for fundraisers that the Clinton campaign has scheduled, which feature George Clooney, Sanders himself appeared on CNN and said that bundlers such as Clooney represent “the problem with American politics.”

Sanders gave a nod to Clooney’s acting skills but then suggested that the use of Clooney for extravagant Hollywood fundraising activity is unseemly.
