Acclaimed singer Barbra Streisand is joining the list of disgruntled celebrities threatening to leave America if Donald Trump is elected president. She made the comments during an interview with Sydney-based journalist Michael Usher during an Australian news program broadcast on Sunday. “He has no facts. I don’t know, I can’t believe it,” Streisand said, referring to Trump. “I’m either coming to your country [Australia], if you’ll let me in, or Canada.” A “thrilled” Hillary Clinton supporter, Streisand has spent the last few weeks campaigning for her preferred candidate. "I´m spending an evening campaigning with Hillary in New York City next week, and
Last week saw one of the most remarkable moments of this most remarkable political season. A major politician defended the conservative movement and the Republican party from guilt-by-association with a fringe group of racists, anti-Semites, and conspiracy theorists who have jumped enthusiastically on the Donald Trump train: the so-called alt-right. “This is not conservatism as we have known it,” the politician said. “This is not Republicanism as we have known it.” The politician was Hillary Clinton, and that’s what’s astonishing. Clinton is normally comfortable unjustly condemning conservatism and the GOP for the sins of bigotry and prejudice, not exonerating it.
Donald Trump has confirmed he will head to Mexico to meet with its billionaire president on Wednesday. He tweeted to his 11million followers on Tuesday: ´I have accepted the invitation of President Enrique Pena Nieto, of Mexico, and look very much forward to meeting him tomorrow.´ The meeting would have to be a brief affair - sandwiched between a California fundraiser in the morning and a night time address in Phoenix where Trump is expected to give a campaign-defining speech on immigration. Nieto´s office said he invited both Trump and Hillary Clinton to meet with him but The Donald´s campaign refused to
Speaking from Bangladesh Tuesday morning, Secretary of State John Kerry suggested members of the media stop covering (Islamic) terrorism so people won´t "know what´s going on." Kerry attempted to preempt his statement by implying media coverage creates copy cats and promotes more terrorism. "If you decide one day you’re going to be a terrorist and you’re willing to kill yourself, you can go out and kill some people. You can make some noise...perhaps the media would do us all a service if they didn’t cover it quite as much. People wouldn’t know what’s going on," Kerry said. While the copy
Hillary Clinton today used her first public event in nearly a week to bash Donald Trump for “dropping in” on Mexico, saying building relationships takes more than “a photo op.” "You don´t build a coalition by insulting our friends or acting like a loose cannon. You do it by putting in the slow, hard work of building relationships," the Democratic presidential nominee and former secretary of state said during remarks at the American Legion´s national convention in Cincinnati, referring to her Republican opponent. "Getting countries working together was my job every day as your secretary of state. It´s more than
The Obama White House may designate certain state voting systems as "pieces of critical infrastructure," which would give federal technology experts "more of a role in assisting the administrators of those networks as they deter intrusions," White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters on Monday. "That´s something that´s being discussed by senior members of the president´s National Security team," Earnest added. (Snip) "We certainly will continue to work in coordination with state and local officials, even short of that (critical infrastructure) designation to offer them advice and assistance, at their request, to ensure that they are protecting their systems," Earnest said
139 shares 156 View comments The State Department says about 30 emails that may be related to the 2012 attack on U.S. compounds in Benghazi, Libya, are among the thousands of Hillary Clinton emails recovered during the FBI´s recently closed investigation into her use of a private server. Government lawyers told U.S. District Court Judge Amit P. Mehta Tuesday that an undetermined number of the emails among the 30 were not included in the 55,000 pages previously provided by Clinton. The State Department´s lawyer said it would need until the end of September to review the emails and redact potentially classified information before they are released. Donald
PHOENIX — Sen. John McCain beat back a primary challenge Tuesday from a Republican tea party activist to win the right to seek a sixth term in November in a race that has been inundated with questions about GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump. The 2008 GOP presidential nominee easily defeated former state Sen. Kelli Ward and two other Republicans. He faces a tough Democratic challenge in the November general election from U.S. Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick. She advanced Tuesday after facing only a write-in opponent in the primary. McCain vowed to not take the primary for granted, and he campaigned hard until the end.
Donald Trump´s perfomance at his dual statement cum brief press conference with Mexican President Enrique Nieto on Wednesday should put shivers in the Hillary Clinton camp even more than the new L.A. Times poll numbers showing a sudden bounce for Trump. Trump was a hundred percent presidential in his performance, showing that he was not about to put his foot in his mouth on the global stage as easily as Hillary´s supporters are hoping. All this is occurring with her email/foundation metastasizing. This election is not over. Trump had a five-point plan for the border, including the building of the
A sad, sordid tale apparently came to an end Monday, at least until the next swim in the muck, with graphic evidence that former Rep. (and now former Daily News occasional columnist) Anthony Weiner was caught in the pathetic act of sexting a virtual stranger once again. We leave it to the couple, their friends and family — and Donald Trump — to analyze the decision of Weiner and Huma Abedin, his wife and a top Hillary Clinton aide, to separate. We leave it to psychologists to determine precisely what sick thing it says about the onetime mayoral aspirant that, after a
Even before the FBI identified new cyber attacks on two separate state election boards, the Department of Homeland Security began considering declaring the election a "critical infrastructure," giving it the same control over security it has over Wall Street and and the electric power grid. The latest admissions of attacks could speed up that effort possibly including the upcoming presidential election, according to officials."We should carefully consider whether our election system, our election process, is critical infrastructure
Whenever I hear someone complain that Donald Trump is “not presidential,” I reply, “Compared to whom? Which president are we talking about? How ‘presidential’ was Barack Obama in 2008 when he said of the Republicans, ‘If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun’?” And just what are the qualities that really matter in a president? The overwhelming majority of Mr. Trump’s detractors have never sat across the table from him to hammer out a multimillion-dollar business deal. I have. So I think I’m in a better position than they are to judge his effectiveness as a top-level
