2016-08-28_1729 Julian Assange2016 ELECTION

Julian Assange: ‘I will bring Hillary down before the debate stage on September 26’ – Ok, Julian, if whatever you’ve got is of such vital and urgent importance, then why the wait to release it? Just get it out there already. The stuff he’s released so far has had about zero effect on anything, and I do not believe that anything else coming our way is going to change the inevitable outcome of this election. The whole world knows Mrs. Clinton is corrupt, and has known it for a long, long time, and yet she is well on track to be elected president. Is this Assange character doing this for the right reasons, or for his own ego’s sake? Something seems shady about the guy to me, though I can’t quite put my finger on what exactly that is. He also, rather half-heartedly, told Bill Maher a couple weeks back that he is working on information about Trump’s tax returns. As reprehensible as these two candidates are, do we really wish for a foreigner with indeterminate intentions to attempt to cause major chaos in our elections? Well, we’ll see what he has got, but I’m not holding my breath expecting it’s going to make much of any difference …

Francis Wilkinson: Trump never had an immigration policy – Conman. Excerpt: ‘Donald Trump made a seemingly momentous announcement on Monday, jettisoning a presidential campaign’s worth of assertions that he would deport millions of undocumented immigrants and close what he has repeatedly called an “open” border. Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly, who interviewed Trump, was obviously stunned. After telling Trump that the news media is “running wild with this,” he asked Trump point blank: “Are you really rethinking your mass deportation strategy?” Trump’s response ought to be devastating to a candidate who made deportation and a border wall the centerpiece of his candidacy. “I just want to follow the law,” he said. “What I’m doing is following the law.” The law, of course, has no funding for mass deportation. And the Obama administration’s interpretation of that law enables millions of undocumented immigrants to stay in the U.S. while authorities focus enforcement resources on apprehending and deporting criminal aliens.’

Stephen Bannon’s ex-wife alleged the Trump campaign CEO objected to daughters attending academy because he ‘didn’t want the girls going to school with Jews’ – An example of the latent (and sometimes not-so-latent) anti-Jewish sentiment deep in the heart of every ‘alt right’ adherent. The same sort of people who were so easily compelled into supporting Nazism …

Latest Pew poll: More Americans giving up on religion and faith

Former Fox News host Andrea Tantaros accuses former Sen. Scott Brown – among others – of sexual harassment – Yup, he’s a sleazeball, and I regret voting for him in 2010, for all the good it did in the long run. She is a babe, to be sure, but treat her with some respect …

Studies prove that these drugs make your brain stop working – Benadryl, Dramamine, and all other forms of over-the-counter anticholinergic drugs will rot your brain! And I can back this up with personal experience: In my desperation get some sleep, I used to take Tylenol PM like it was candy, wrongly believing it was harmless. And, at first, they were. Over time, though, even just one of those pills would mess me up for a day or longer, and I stopped using them. Quite literally, I would be in a horrific daze every time out, but I still wasn’t fully aware of what they were doing to my brain. Combined with my former abuse of alcohol, I do believe my cognitive abilities were harmed as a result. My worst vice currently is that I smoke cigarettes, and I do know at some point those are going to have to go. So, even though I’m far from being a health and exercise nut, I do hope and pray each and everyone reading this will heed the warning presented here …
