Rev. Franklin Graham: The Media Do Not Want the Political Corruption To Change!

CNS NEWS ^ | October 26, 2016 | Michael W. Chapman 

Commenting on the "incredible" media bias this election year, evangelical Pastor Franklin Graham said the "corruption" in both political parties is "unbelieveable" and the media, "along with many politicians from both parties, doesn't want any of this to change."

"Isn't the media bias incredible -- especially relating to political candidates?" said Rev. Graham in an Oct. 24 post on Facebook. "Geraldo Rivera said last night that it’s like nothing he’s ever seen."
"They spin story after story against the candidates they don’t like and in favor of the candidates they support," he said. "I hope and pray that Christians are not deceived by the media's bias, but will give prayerful consideration as they go to the polls and vote."
"Our political system in this country is broken," said Rev. Graham. "The corruption is in both parties and is unbelievable. The media, along with many politicians from both parties, doesn’t want any of this to change."
"As I went to all 50 states this year and stood on the capitol steps with Christians from every state, we prayed and confessed our sins to God," he said. "We asked His forgiveness and asked Him to heal this land. My prayer is that you will continue to pray, and that you will vote."
Source: Facebook "America needs the Christian voice at the ballot box," said Rev. Graham. "We can’t be silent. The church needs to take a stand for God’s truth and His righteousness."
In conclusion, Rev. Graham said, "At the end of the day the most critical issue in this election is the Supreme Court. We’ve already seen the influence and impact this court has on the direction of our nation. You have to decide which presidential candidate you trust to appoint the next justices to serve lifetime terms and then vote for them. May God bless America again!"
Franklin Graham, 64, is the son of world-renowned evangelist Billy Graham, arguably the most effective Christian preacher o fhte last 60 years. Franklin Graham is married, has five children, and lives in Boone, N.C. He frequently comments of current affairs on radio, television, and on the Internet.

Signs of Monster Voters Appear in Minnesota CD8 – Trump Beating Clinton by 12 Points!

Conservative Treehouse ^ | 10/27/2016 | Sundance 

Yesterday’s significant example was in Butler County Ohio where requests for republican ballots have increased by a whopping 40% over 2012. Today, another VERY significant indication surfaces -albeit quietly- Minnesota’s deep blue CD-8.

Trump thumbs up MINNESOTA – The eighth Congressional District of Minnesota is a working class area in Eastern Minnesota. It has voted for a Democrat in the last four Presidential elections. It has a Democrat Congressman and will likely be the most expensive Congressional race this year.
Usually, a Democrat Presidential candidate would win. But a recent poll held a shock:
Trump is beating Hillary by 12 points: “Our poll shows Republican Donald Trump with a 12-point lead over Clinton, 47 percent to 35 percent“ Trump is winning with women: “leading Clinton 41 percent to 39 percent.”
Dems are crossing over: “the number of Democrats dropped from 34 percent in 2014 to 27 percent in 2016. The number of independents jumped from 31 percent two years ago to 41 percent this year.“ (keep reading) And signs of the Monster Votes doesn’t stop there.

Morning Joe Hosts Rip Into ‘Morally Defecit,’ ‘Sleazy’ Clinton Foundation

Mediaite ^ | 10/27/2016 | Alex Griswold 

The hosts of MSNBC’s Morning Joe devoted nearly twenty minutes Thursday morning to tearing into the Clinton Foundation after new emails revealed the extent to which the Clintons used their charity to personally enrich themselves.

In one new email, Bill Clinton aide Doug Band spoke openly about how he negotiated for big donors to give $50 million to Clinton personally as part of their deals to donate to the Clinton Foundation in exchange for access to the former president, which he called “Clinton Inc.” In another, Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin made it clear she had to meet with the Moroccan government after they gave the Foundation $12 million. “She created this mess and she knows it,” Abdein said.

“The people around her are well aware of the problem…” host Willie Geist said. “Those closest to Hillary Clinton know– and Hillary Clinton must know on some level– that all these things will not look good going into a presidential election. At best, they’re unethical.”

Co-host Mika Brzezinski agreed that the Foundation looked scandalous in a “kind of morally deficit kind of way, a sleazy way.”

Trump leads Clinton 50%-36% in Florida among voters who plan to vote on election day!

FAU ^ | 26 Oct 2016 | FAU Poll 

FAU Poll Shows Trump Closing to Within Three Points of Clinton in ‘Must-Win’ State of Florida Rubio and Murphy in Tight Senate Race; Medical Marijuana Likely to Pass
BOCA RATON, Fla. (October 26, 2016) – Donald Trump has closed to within three points of Hillary Clinton in what the Republican nominee has called the “must-win” state of Florida, according to a poll of 500 likely Florida voters conducted by the Florida Atlantic University Business and Economics Polling Initiative (FAU BEPI).
Trump has cut in half Clinton’s six-point lead from FAU’s poll just two weeks earlier. Among likely voters in Florida, Clinton leads Trump 46 percent to 43 percent with 6 percent undecided.
As expected, Trump has a 17-point lead among white voters, 53 to 36 percent. Clinton has a 49-point lead among African Americans, 73 to 24 percent, and leads with Hispanics, 68 to 19 percent. Clinton is winning with Independents 50 to 34 percent.
Trump enjoys strong support in northern Florida, where he leads Clinton 56 to 32 percent, as well as in the central part of the state, which is breaking 49 to 38 percent in his favor. Clinton is winning overwhelmingly in south Florida 68 to 26 percent. In a sign of the Clinton campaign’s organizational strength, she leads among the 26 percent of respondents who said they already voted, 54 percent to 41 percent for Trump. Clinton also leads 49 to 40 percent among women voters. Trump leads among those who plan to vote on Election Day, however, 50 to 36 percent.

Hillary Admits In Leaked Email That Clinton Donors Are Funding ISIS

Anti Media ^ | 26 August 2016 | Alice Salles 

In an email between Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and her campaign chairman, John Podesta, the former first lady and secretary of state cites “Western intelligence, US intelligence and sources in the region” to accuse Qatar and Saudi Arabia of “providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL [or ISIS] and other radical Sunni groups in the region.”
Citing the need to “use our diplomatic and more traditional intelligence assets,” the candidate told Podesta the current developments in the Middle East were “important to the U.S. for reasons that often differ from country to country.” In the same email, Clinton seemed to claim Turkey needed to be reassured of America’s willingness to “take serious actions,” an effort that “[could] be sustained to protect our national interests” in the region.
In another piece of correspondence from 2012, the Director of Foreign Policy at the Clinton Foundation, Amitabh Desai, claimed the Ambassador from Qatar would “like to see [Bill Clinton] ‘for five minutes’ in NYC, to present $1 million check that Qatar promised for [his] birthday in 2011,” adding that the small but rich nation occupying the Qatar Peninsula would “welcome [the Clinton Foundation’s] suggestions for investments in Haiti — particularly on education and health.” Desai added that while Qatar had already “allocated most of their $20 million … [they were] happy to consider projects we suggest.”
Al Jazeera, a Qatar-based, state-funded news organization, recently ran a list of “revealing, juicy and quirky emails” leaked by WikiLeaks. In its list, the news organization went over the “pay-for-play” scheme involving the Clinton Foundation, going so far as to mention an email confirming the king of Morocco offered $12m “for the endowment” — as long as Clinton was willing to take part in a meeting.
Nevertheless, the state-funded broadcaster failed to bring up the Qatar connection. Unfortunately for the organization, Wikileaks promptly noticed the omission.

Clinton Campaign Chairman Had Multiple Dinners With DOJ Official During Email Investigation!

Daily Caller ^ | 25 October 2016 | Chuck Ross 

The day after Hillary Clinton testified in front of the House Select Committee on Benghazi last October, John Podesta, the Democrat’s campaign chairman, met for dinner with a small group of well-connected friends, including Peter Kadzik, a top official at the Justice Department.
The dinner arrangement, revealed in hacked Podesta emails released by WikiLeaks, is just the latest example of an apparent conflict of interest between the Clinton campaign and the federal agency charged with investigating the former secretary of state’s email practices.
Podesta and Kadzik, the assistant attorney general for legislative affairs, were in frequent contact, other emails show. In one email from January, Kadzik and Podesta, who were classmates at Georgetown Law School in the 1970s, discussed plans to celebrate Podesta’s birthday. And in another sent last May, Kadzik’s son emailed Podesta asking for a job on the Clinton campaign.
The exchanges are another example of the Clinton campaign’s “cozy relationship” with the Obama Justice Department, one former U.S. Attorney tells The Daily Caller.

Health Law Tax Penalty? I’ll Take It, Millions Say

New York Times ^ | OCT. 26, 2016 | ROBERT PEAR 

The architects of the Affordable Care Act thought they had a blunt instrument to force people — even young and healthy ones — to buy insurance through the law’s online marketplaces: a tax penalty for those who remain uninsured.
It has not worked all that well, and that is at least partly to blame for soaring premiums next year on some of the health law’s insurance exchanges.
The full weight of the penalty will not be felt until April, when those who have avoided buying insurance will face penalties of around $700 a person or more. But even then that might not be enough: For the young and healthy who are badly needed to make the exchanges work, it is sometimes cheaper to pay the Internal Revenue Service than an insurance company charging large premiums, with huge deductibles.
“In my experience, the penalty has not been large enough to motivate people to sign up for insurance,” said Christine Speidel, a tax lawyer at Vermont Legal Aid.
Some people do sign up, especially those with low incomes who receive the most generous subsidies, Ms. Speidel said. But others, she said, find that they cannot afford insurance, even with subsidies, so “they grudgingly take the penalty.”
The I.R.S. says that 8.1 million returns included penalty payments for people who went without insurance in 2014, the first year in which most people were required to have coverage. A preliminary report on the latest tax-filing season, tabulating data through April, said that 5.6 million returns included penalties averaging $442 a return for people uninsured in 2015.
With the health law’s fourth open-enrollment season beginning Tuesday, consumers are anxiously weighing their options.

Why Trump Will Win

American Thinker ^ | October 27, 2016 | Michael Finch 

Donald Trump is going to win on November 8th and the moment when this election turned from seeming defeat to certain victory will be the least expected and one of the most derisively attacked moments of his campaign. During the third debate when Trump said on being asked if he would accept the election results, "I will look at it at the time" the election was his. The uproar on both sides of the political spectrum has been an avalanche of criticism; this was Trump at his worst, the dooming moment of a quixotic and egomaniacal campaign. Or was it?
Decisiveness and boldness don’t always result in a victory on the field of battle but indecisiveness and hesitation, in the moment of crisis, most assuredly will result in inglorious defeat. Trump has been called a lot of things, probably the most flattering among, even his allies, is that he is a good “entertainer.” For political acumen, he might be given a 2, and that would be the score given by his friends. But too many have all missed something that Trump as seen since the beginning.
Trump is reading something different, a mood and frustration in this country that is not just confined to some 32%. The country is heading in the wrong direction, we on the right know that, but in fact, almost 70% of Americans overall sense that. And that is not just an indictment of the Obama years; it is an indictment of the entire bipartisan political class.
This election is not being run for the pundits, the media, the conservative gadflies and hangers on, the consultants and wise thinkers who tut-tut continually on television about how Trump, “just can’t do it this way,” he must pivot and be “presidential” and discuss nothing but the issues.
