With sagging polls and lagging enthusiasm, Hillary's Campaign is attacking Comey and the FBI investigation of her E-mails more than her opponent Trump

The Clinton Campaign, most senior Democrats, and their allies in the mainstream media have turned their strongest attacks on FBI Director James Comey  ---  and the very FBI investigation that they so-often quoted as exonerating Hillary Clinton for months up to now


That all shows you what is really terrifying Hillary and the Democrats between now and election day ---  and what they are trying hardest to turn around, right now  


For the pro-Hillary crowd, it's suddenly issue number one ---  as everybody begins the last week of the 2016 presidential campaign


The latest brouhaha caused by Comey's ripping-off of whatever clot had formed on Hillary's scabrous E-mails scandal is now four days old and still counting


HRC'S CAMPAIGN IS NOW WORKING VERY HARD TO SHOW THAT THE FBI & COMEY APPLIED A "DOUBLE STANDARD"



According to today's reporting in the Boston Globe, "The Hillary Clinton campaign Monday escalated its efforts to discredit FBI Director James Comey’s disclosure of a revived e-mail investigation, accusing him of applying a double standard for refusing to publicly discuss investigations of Russian meddling in the presidential election....   Comey has come under intense fire for his unusual disclosure to Congress Friday about the discovery of e-mails that the FBI planned to review, a statement that departed from Department of Justice policies to avoid investigative pronouncements shortly before elections....   The Department of Justice sent a letter to Congress Monday saying it would work with the FBI to “expeditiously’’ conduct a review. But it was uncertain that the law enforcement officials would conclude the revived probe of thousands of e-mails before the Nov. 8 election, and the cloud of innuendo created by Comey appeared likely to hang over Clinton’s bid throughout the final week of the campaign....   With polls showing a tightening race amid a damaging controversy, Clinton and her campaign officials rolled out fresh tactics Monday....   ‘'There is no case here,' Clinton said of the FBI review Monday, while campaigning in Ohio at Kent State University. She said the FBI 'jumped into an election with no evidence of any wrongdoing.'..."  (See  "Clinton campaign escalates effort to discredit FBI probe" by Victoria McGrane, 11/1/16, The Boston Globe/ Politics

The Boston  Globe article by Victoria McGrane went on to state that ---  "....  Clinton’s campaign officials sought to turn the tables more aggressively on Comey, seizing on a report by CNBC. The cable TV channel cited an anonymous source Monday contending that sometime before Oct. 7 Comey had privately argued against US government agencies’ publicly fingering Russia for hacking efforts aimed at meddling in the election. Comey had reportedly argued that it was too close to Election Day to raise the accusation...."

In case you missed it, yesterday FBI Director James Comey BLEW-UP Hillary Clinton's Campaign --- and all the kings horses and all the kings men are trying to put it together again


The Obama Administration,  Hillary Clinton’s Campaign and the Mainstream Media are in a melt-down  ---   They are trying to move heaven and earth and UN-RING the FBI Director’s clanging bell of a letter supplementing his prior testimony about the investigation of Hillary Clinton's E-mails


HOW BIG IS IT  ???   WELL,  COMEY DEFIED HIGHER-UPS IN THE DOJ TO PUT IT OUT THERE  ---  AND  ---  FOR THEIR PART, THE DOJ AND THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION THOUGHT IT WAS IMPORTANT ENOUGH TO LET THE WHOLE WORLD KNOW THAT THE U.S. ATTRONEY GENERAL, THE DOJ  AND THE FBI DIRECTOR WERE NOT ON THE SAME PAGE ABOUT ALL OF THIS AND/OR POSSIBLY ANY OF THIS


Even Watergate Carl Bernstein says this has to be  “…a real BOMBSHELL” for Comey to bring it up now, 11 days before the 2016 election for president



On  Friday,  October 28, 2016,  with only 11 days until Election Day, the news broke that FBI Director James Comey had sent a letter to congressional leaders and relevant committee chairmen that in the course of investigating “an unrelated case,” the FBI found new emails that “appear to be pertinent” to the FBI’s case on then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s unsecured private email server. As a result, the FBI is reopening its investigation of Hillary…..   HMMMM !!!

THE LETTER TO CONGRESS  ---  SUPPLEMENTING HIS PRIOR CONGRESSIONAL TESTIMONY

Here's the letter FBI Director James Comey sent to certain congressional leaders concerning the various matters discussed therein:

“[Direct Addrssee Chairmen Senators and Members of Congress]….

Dear Messrs Chairmen:

In previous congressional testimony, l referred to the fact that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) had completed its investigation of former Secretary Clinton’s personal email server. Due to recent developments, I am writing to supplement my previous testimony.

In connection with an unrelated case, the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation. I am writing to inform you that the investigative team briefed me on this yesterday, and I agreed that the FBI should take appropriate investigative steps designed to allow investigators to review these emails to determine whether they contain classified information, as well as to assess their importance to our investigation.

Although the FBI cannot yet assess whether or not this material may be significant, and I cannot predict how long it will take us to complete this additional work, I believe it is important to update your Committees about our efforts in light of my previous testimony.

Sincerely yours,
James B. Comey
Director


[CC recipient ranking Senators and Members of Congress]….”


FBI DIRECTOR COMEY’S OTHER LETTER TO HIS FBI AGENTS AND OTHER EMPLOYEES

Here’s something else that FBI Director Comey sent out inside the FBI:

“To all:

This morning I sent a letter to Congress in connection with the Secretary Clinton email investigation. Yesterday, the investigative team briefed me on their recommendation with respect to seeking access to emails that have recently been found in an unrelated case. Because those emails appear to be pertinent to our investigation, I agreed that we should take appropriate steps to obtain and review them.

Of course, we don’t ordinarily tell Congress about ongoing investigations, but here I feel an obligation to do so given that I testified repeatedly in recent months that our investigation was completed. I also think it would be misleading to the American people were we not to supplement the record.  At the same time, however, given that we don’t know the significance of this newly discovered collection of emails, I don’t want to create a misleading impression. In trying to strike that balance, in a brief letter and in the middle of an election season, there is significant risk of being misunderstood, but I wanted you to hear directly from me about it.

Jim Comey”

ONE OF THE MAIN WATERGATE JOURNALISTS, CARL BERNSTEIN HAD THIS TO SAY ABOUT THE COMEY BROUHAHA

“Well, there’s no question that the e-mails have always been the greatest threat to [Hillary Clinton’s] candidacy for president, that her conduct in regard to the e-mails is really indefensible and  --  the one thing  --  actually that could really perhaps affect this election.

We don’t know what this [Comey letter to Congressional Leaders] means yet except that it’s a real bombshell. And it is unthinkable that the Director of the FBI would take this action lightly . . . unless it was something requiring serious investigation  --  I want to add here that in the last, oh, 36, 48 hours, there has been an undercurrent of kind of speculative discussion among some national security people that something might surface in the next few days about e-mails  --  [I]t’s very possible that some members of congress very quickly are going to get an idea of what these e-mails are, and what this is all about, and for whatever purpose put some information out there.”


THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION AND DOJ

Pretty much, they all say that they told FBI Director Comey not to press the button to blow-up Hillary Clinton's campaign.....  But, that he did it anyway and that's a bad thing to do....

THE NYS GOP APPEARS TO JOIN IN MARTY GOLDEN’S ATTEMPT TO LAUNCH ANOTHER RUMP BOOKLYN GOP CONVENTION


THE FOLKS SCHEDULING A “KINGS COUNTY REPUBLICAN  CONVENTION” FOR NOVEMBER 4th ARE VIOLATING LOCAL AND STATE GOP RULES,  ---  AND  ---  A NEW YORK STATE SUPREME COURT ORDER


 There are at least some reports (news media and from some of my individual sources inside the undisputed duly-elected Kings County Republican Party Organization)  indicating that there is some kind of unlawful conspiracy between Brooklyn GOP State Senator Marty Golden, his handpicked gunzel to be Brooklyn GOP County Leader, lawyer Theodore Ghorra, the Staten Island GOP Chairman John Antoniello and NYS Republican Chairman Edward Cox to schedule another one of Marty Golden’s  rump-style Republican conventions.  Right off the bat, calling this gathering to order as a Kings County Convention is in violation of the Brooklyn Republican County rules, the New York State Republican Party Rules (sorry folks, even as recently amended) and the current binding order of New York State Supreme Court Justice Edgar Walker.   The main and most open act of that unlawful conspiracy,  another of Marty Golden' swag Brooklyn GOP conventions, appears to be scheduled for November 4th  (See e.g.,  Brooklyn GOP Day Of Reorganizational Reckoning Is At Hand”   by  Staff Writer, 10/26/16,  Kings County Politics (Blog)/ Brooklyn Politics  [http://www.kingscountypolitics.com/brooklyn-gop-reorganizational-meeting-set-nov-4/]).

According to the  “Kings County Politics” report, cited above  ---  Fireworks between Brooklyn’s fractured Republican Party members will be flying hotter than the fourth of July come Friday, Nov. 4….   That’s the day New York State Republican Party Chair Edward F. Cox set for the Kings County Republican Party Committee organizational meeting to elect officers including a Chair, Secretary and Treasurer….  Cox also ordered Richmond County Republican Chair John Antoniello, to preside over the meeting….   Cox set the meeting on the order and decision of Kings County Supreme Court Judge Edgar G. Walker, who ruled for a do over of the September 30, 2015 Brooklyn GOP reorganizational convention to elect a county chair and members of its Executive Committee….”

My sources have indicated to me that there are some real problems with some of what that report says.   Even though Golden, Ghorra, Cox and Antoniello might be trying to set up a meeting,  it is not being conducted pursuant to either the Brooklyn or State Republican Party rules.   More important, it appears to be in complete violation of an order issued by the Supreme Court Justice with jurisdiction over the disputed Brooklyn Republican Convention(s), Edgar Walker, JSC.  

Thus, not only is Ed Cox’s attempt to take over the Brooklyn process an ultra vires act in the performance of his duties as the New York State Republican Chairman, it is in apparent violation of an existing NYS Supreme Court Order governing all the matters at hand,  including things like who is supposed to be conducting the upcoming Brooklyn GOP convention.

The November 4th gathering of some elected members of the GOP County Committee AND OTHERS at the Baron DeKalb K of C Hall will probably only attract the Marty Golden faction of the Brooklyn GOP and Golden's allied officious interlopers. ---  Everybody else that I spoke to, who are now undisputed elected members of the Kings County Republican Committee, indicated that they will most likely treat the Golden-Cox-Antoniello meeting as a nullity and take any business purportedly conducted there back to Justice Walker in due course.

FLASH NEWS EVENT:  THE ”TRUMP MANIFESTO FOR A NEW AMERICAN REVOLUTION” EDITION


COUCHED AS A PLAN FOR HIS FIRST 100 DAYS IN OFFICE  ---   DONALD TRUMP UNVEILS HIS PLAN FOR A NEW AMERICAN REVOLUTION  ---  PREPARED TO TAKE ON THE ENTRENCHED REPUBLICAN ESTABLISHEMENT ALONG WITH THE REST OF THE WASHINGTON,  D.C.  “SWAMP,”  THE SAME PLAN WOULD BE AN EXCELLENT PLATFORM TO MAKE THE OLD GOP INTO A NEW REPUBLICAN PARTY


TRUMP SHOWS THAT HE IS READY TO LEAD BOTH THE NATION AND THE REPUBLICAN PARTY  ---  WHETHER HE WINS THE 2016 ELECTION OR NOT 


According to the  Newsmax report on Donald Trump’s Gettysburg speech  ---  GOP nominee Donald Trump Saturday outlined an ambitious plan for his first 100 days in office, saying on the first day alone he has several steps he plans to take to end Washington's corruption….  ‘One thing we all know is that we will never solve our problems by relying on the same politicians who created these problems in the first place,’ Trump said to a supportive, cheering audience in historic Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.  ‘Hillary Clinton is not running against me, she's running against change. And she's running against all of the American people and all of the American voters.’…  It's time to for Americans to ‘dream big’ once again, said Trump, outlining in what he called a ‘contract between Donald J. Trump and the American voter,’  that begins with  ‘bringing honesty, accountability and change to Washington, D.C.’…  The first six measures, Trump said, will be  ‘immediately’  pursued on his first day of his first term in office to  ‘clean up the corruption and special interests collusion in Washington.’   "   (See “The first six measures, Trump said, will be "immediately" pursued on his first day of his first term in office to "clean up the corruption and special interests collusion in Washington"  by Sandy Fitzgerald, 10/22/16,  Newsmax/ Breaking News [http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/Trump-Plan-First-Days/2016/10/22/id/754831/]).

Finally Newsmax noted that  ---  “Trump outlined his plans after opening the speech by railing against what he calls a ‘rigged’ election system, and by demanding how rival Hillary Clinton should be allowed to run for office, given her activities in connection with her use of a secret email server while secretary of State.”

A NEW AMERICAN REVOLUTION & A NEW REPUBLICAN PARTY 

That is a much too narrow view of what Donald Trump’s Gettysburg speech was all about.   It doesn’t take a lot of imagination to see that Donald Trump is throwing down against the entrenched establishment  ---  both in the short run and long term.

Taking the longer view,  one can easily perceive today’s speech  as Donald Trump’s  MANIFESTO  for a SECOND AMERICAN REVOLUTION,  whether or not he wins on election day.   Part of that revolution would be Trump’s take-over of the Republican Party and  a complete purge of all establishment types from the GOP leadership, who would be expected to resist Trump’s reforms.

“OBAMA: Trump's refusal to commit to accepting election results 'dangerous' rhetoric….”


WHY IS BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA GETTING SO PERSONALLY INVOLVED WITH A ONE-LINER BY DONALD TRUMP NEAR THE END OF HIS DEBATE WITH HILLARY CLINTON  ?????  ---   MAYBE, IT HAS TO DO WITH OBAMA’S OWN POSSIBLY-ILLIGITIMATE CURRENT PRESIDENCY 


Donald Trump was one of the main actors in putting the “BIRTHER” questions to the possibly-Kenyan POTUS 

---  Maybe, in raising questions about HRC's possible theft of votes and use of swag voters, Trump might show how Obama did it to Romney in 2012


MAYBE POTUS OBAMA IS WORRIED ABOUT SOME FUTURE  LYNCH MOB SHOUTING A CHANT  ---  “...OBAMA & CLINTON, LOCK ‘EM UP...”



According to a recent report in the “Business Insider”  ---  President Barack Obama admonished Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Thursday for refusing to say whether he will accept the outcome of the November elections….  ‘That is not a joking matter,’ Obama said. ‘No, no, no. I want everyone to pay attention here.’…   Obama added: ‘That is dangerous.’…  The president… said that ‘when you try to sow the seeds of doubt in people’s minds about the legitimacy of our elections, that undermines our democracy.’… ‘Then you are doing the work of our adversaries for them,’ Obama argued. ‘Because our democracy depends on people knowing their vote matters.’…”    (See “OBAMA: Trump's refusal to commit to accepting election results 'dangerous' rhetoric” by Oliver D’Arcy, 10/20/16, The Business Insider/ Politics   [http://www.businessinsider.com/obama-trump-election-results-2016-10]).

Why does president Obama suddenly have so much skin in the game on this particular issue  ?????

Maybe,  the MSM is missing the real story here.   Barack Obama might feel that if Trump’s refusal  “accept the outcome of the November elections…” people might look back into the legitimacy of the 2008 and 2012 elections that at those times put Obama on his high horse.   After all there was plenty of talk before the 2012 election about the Obama crowd possibly stealing the election from Mitt Romney.  And there was some post-election evidence that there very likely had been some shenanigans here and there.

How comfortable could a a president and a president-elect feel if up to 47% of Republicans with pitchforks and shotguns were to show up on Pennsylvania Avenue,  along with some other Second Amendment fanatics & militia-types with some real firepower,  and all of them were shouting,  “Lock ‘em up !!!   Lock ‘em up !!!"   as they marched from Trump's Post Office building toward the White House.

Now, that really would be   >>>   " ...having skin in the game...."  ---  AND  ---  who knows what POTUS Obama knows about, thinks and feels about any or all of this stuff.

In case you missed it: Trump announced that if Hillary Clinton and the Establishment try to steal this election from the people, they'll be in for a fight


TRUMP MAKES HIS BIGGEST "PUSH-BACK" AGAINST THE ESTABLISHMENT SO FAR


Trump's refusal to commit to accepting the 2016 election results throws the MSM and the rest of the "Establishment" into a  >>> TIZZY <<<


TRUMP SIGNALS THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND THE WORLD THAT HE IS SERIOUS ABOUT HIS CHARGE THAT THIS ELECTION  >>> IS  RIGGED <<<  AND THAT HE WILL WAIT TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS ON ELECTION DAY BEFORE MAKING ANY COMMITTMENT  TO ACCEPT THE RESULTS


EVERYBODY ON THE OTHER SIDE SUDDENLY FORGETS "GORE V. BUSH" ---  AFTER DONALD TRUMP INDICATES THAT HE MIGHT TAKE THE SELECTION OF THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE U.S. BEYOND THE COUNTING OF THE VOTE IN THE 2016 ELECTION


MAYBE, THIS THE BEGINNING OF A "[COUNTER-] REVOLUTION"

---  FOR THE PEOPLE 

--  AND  --  FROM THE RIGHT




In a memorable third pre-election debate performance, Donald Trump proved yet again that the 2016 campaign IS really all about   >>>   HOW DONALD TRUMP INTENDS TO LEAD THE COUNTRY AFTER ELECTION DAY   <<<

In other words, Trump announced that he is ready to question the validity and legitimacy of any win by Hillary Clinton that looks like it resulted from any "rigged" process.

Wait and see  ---  whether the Trump "movement" is evolving into a "revolt" or even a "revolution"  ---   FROM THE RIGHT & FOR THE PEOPLE.....

FLASH UPDATE: THE "VERY SIGNIFICANT POLLING RESULT" EDITION

***  FORTY-ONE PERCENT (41%) OF THOSE POLLED BELIEVE THAT THIS ELECTION MIGHT BE >>>  STOLEN  <<<  FROM DONALD TRUMP  ***

---   IF THE FOCUS SHIFTS TO "REPUBLICANS" THEN THE PERCENTAGE GROWS TO SEVENTY-THREE (73%) [THAT'S ALMOST THREE-OUT-OF-FOUR SELF-IDENTIFIED "REPUBLICANS" DOUBTING THE VALIDITY OF THE NEXT NATIONAL ELECTION]


IF THAT POLLING NUMBER ACTUALLY REFLECTS THE BELIEFS OF SUCH A REAL PERCENTAGE OF AMERICANS AND SELF-IDENTIFIED "REPUBLICANS,"  THEN THE NATION'S FAITH IN OUR ELECTORAL SYSTEM AND THE UNDERLYING VALIDITY OF OUR DEMOCRATIC-REPUBLIC IS BEGINNING TO UNWIND ---  IT SOON MIGHT CRACK AND WE WOULD THEN BE ENTERING A NEW REBELLIOUS AND REVOLUTIONARY PHASE OF OUR POLITICS AND GOVERNANCE



According to an on-line report on the Time Magazine web,  "Though his support is slipping, Republican nominee Donald Trump’s claims that the election could be stolen from him are starting to set in with voters, according to a new poll....  Some 41% of voters surveyed for a new Politico/Morning Consult poll agreed with Trump’s statement that the election could be 'stolen' from him as a result of 'widespread voter fraud.' Among Republicans, nearly three-fourths of voters agree the election could be rigged against Trump, while only 17% of Democrats were in agreement....  The majority of Americans, 60%, believe it’s “necessary” to raise questions about election results because a foreign government or fraudulent voters could compromise the election...." (See "41% Believe Election Might Be Stolen from Donald Trump, Poll Finds" by Maya Rhodan, 10/17/16, Time Magazine [http://time.com/4533059/donald-trump-election-poll-hillary-clinton/]).

Here's what the folks from Politico say:  "The American electorate has turned deeply skeptical about the integrity of the nation's election apparatus, with 41 percent of voters saying November's election could be "stolen" from Donald Trump due to widespread voter fraud....  The new POLITICO/ Morning Consult poll -- conducted among 1,999 registered voters Oct. 13 through Oct. 15 -- shows that Trump’s repeated warnings about a “rigged” election are having effect: 73 percent of Republicans think the election could be swiped from him. Just 17 percent of Democrats agree with the prospect of massive fraud at the ballot box...  The public sentiment is beginning to reflect Trump's campaign message. Over the last week, the GOP nominee has intensified his criticism of the U.S. electoral system, much to the chagrin of elected Republicans, who think it threatens the peaceful transfer of power. Trump calls the process rigged, and has said the media is colluding with Hillary Clinton to throw the presidential race in her favor...."

Bay Ridge-Dyker Heights-Bath Beach Council Candidate Bob  Capano and his Campaign Chairman Curtis Sliwa participate in Saturday HOMELESS protest event for their Greenwood-Sunset Park neighbors


Capano & Sliwa support local communities’ protest in a nearby Brooklyn neighborhood  ---  lending their presence reacting to this plea:  “ATTENTION SUNSET PARK RESIDENTS: OUR TOWN NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT”


Candidate Capano unveils his own evolving homeless policy positions in response to Mayor de Blasio’s panicked & unlawful "Homeless Hotels" response to the recent explosion of homelessness throughout NYC



Southwest Brooklyn City Council Candidate Bob Capano and one of his better-known Campaign Co-chairmen appeared on Saturday at an anti-shelter protest  --  but pro-homeless event  --  in the Sunset Park-Greenwood neighborhoods including  the blocks near24th Street and 4th Avenue,  formerly known as South Brooklyn.   The protest-event was hosted by several local Sunset Park groups like The Village of Sunset Park, along with the Maspeth-Middle Village Task Force  Citizens United and Citizens Defending Libraries.   Featured at the protest-event were members of the Queens-based Juniper Park Civic Association based in Middle Village and Maspeth Queens. 


One speaker was Bob Holden, who’s  the President of the Juniper Park Civic Assn.,  now leading a movement throughout the city after de Blasio proposed turning a hotel into a homeless shelter in Maspeth with no local community notification or input.  He is taking these rallies/protests around the city to places like 24th Street and 4th Avenue, where NYC is now housing the homeless in one of the  new hotels, that have been built there recently.   

Holden  brought his folks to Sunset Park because de Blasio and the City homeless authorities have done much the same at the Sunset Park-Greenwood sight as had been done in Maspeth, Queens. Holden’s  message was balanced and well-reasoned ---  “We are not opposed to finding housing for the Homeless -- [BUT] -- we are opposed to the[ir] being warehoused in hotels with no community input or notification….” 


PRIOR RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN CURTIS SLIWA AND EVENT'S CITY-WIDE  ORGANIZERS  ---   CAPANO INTRODUCED AND STANDS SHOULDER TO SHOULDER WITH SLIWA AT EVENT


Sliwa has had Holden on his radio show on this issue several times.   Sliwa met with Capano when he arrived;  and along with Bob,  discussed the local nuances of the City’s unannounced dumping of the homeless in Brooklyn neighborhoods with several of the event organizers and participants.

CAPANO TALKS ABOUT HIS POSITONS INVOLVING THE HOMELESS


According to Bob Capano  ---   “ Brooklyn Community Board 7, which covers Sunset Park and Windsor Terrace, got no notification of the City’s plan to house the homeless in many of the hotels in South Brooklyn. These hotel rooms cost an extraordinary amount for taxpayers and as we heard directly Saturday from someone actually living in one of these facilities….” 


Capano then started to explain what might be the beginnings of his own  “homeless policy “  ---  “[N]o city services are being offered to help these individuals get on their feet. They are literally just being warehoused. They need to be re-integrated and again become a part of the communities where they have lived for years…”  --    and  --  “ [T]hat can only happen if the mayor and his administration works with the community, not just them showing up in the middle of the night with bunches of homeless people on buses….”


Capano then noted how, when he was Director of Community Boards under Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz, COUNCILMAN Bill de Blasio always spoke about community notification and input when it came to anything Mayor Bloomberg's administration tried to do, now as Mayor he ignores his own words. "He is a hypocrite," said Capano referring to de Blasio, while noting that "... chants of  ---   'One Term Mayor' --- were prominent..."  at the Sunset Park-Greenwood protest-event.

FLASH BACKFILL: RUSSIAN FOREIGN MINISTER SAYS AMERICAN HAS "PUSSIES" RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT --- ON ALL SIDES

In a patent demonstration of disdain and disrespect for the U.S.A., Russia's  >>> FOREIGN MINISTER <<<  uses vulgar term referring to both of our presidential candidates


Russia is laughing it's ass off about how it is screwing around with our presidential election -- while it runs rings around us militarily and diplomatically in the rest of the world


According to CNN ---  "Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has dismissed claims that his country is interfering in the US presidential election as 'ridiculous'....   In an interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour in Moscow, Lavrov said it was 'flattering' that American officials think Russia is meddling in the election, but the accusations were baseless. [And later in CNN's Lavrov report was this:]  ....   Lavrov was also asked about the furor over a video that emerged last week in which Trump talked about women in lewd terms....  After pointing out that English was not his first language and that he was unsure if he would sound 'decent,' Lavrov said: 'There are so many pussies around the presidential campaign on both sides that I prefer not to comment.'..."  (See  "Lavrov denies Russian influence over US election" by

Tonight, BOB CAPANO announced the names of the four co-chairs of his 2017 City Council Campaign Committee  --  They are Craig Eaton, John Catsimatidis, Bob Turner and Curtis Sliwa


Each of Capano’s Chairmen is, in his own right, a political heavy-weight in Brooklyn and/or NYC Republican politics  


Although the specific organizational aspects of Capano’s Committee won’t be finalized for a little while, Bobby C.  did indicate to me that all four would be equals as “Honorary Chairmen”


---  However  ---  probably  one would actually perform all of the functions of a “Chairman”; and another would certainly be functioning as Capano's “Finance Chairman” 


---  The remaining two would also have significant functions largely involving outreach and public relations 


---  AND  ---  all four would perform all types of across the board liaison(s) with the various Republican City-wide campaigns in 2017



Tonight on the “Vito & Vito” weekly podcast  (See .”The Vito & Vito Show” with Vito DiGiovanni and Vito Palmeri, 1013/16 [http://www.vitoandvito.com/p/listen-live.html]),  Bob Capano  announced  the Co-Chairmen of his 2017  Campaign Committee,  “ Bob Capano – City Council – New Leadership.”  ---  The named co-chairmen are Craig Eaton, John Catsimatidis, Bob Turner and Curtis Sliwa.

BOB WENT TO HIS LONG TERM GOP CONTACTS


No doubt, Bob Capano used his long-time contacts and good will inside the Brooklyn and NYC GOP to come up with this Blue Ribbon panel of GOP luminaries.  It had long been expected that Craig Eaton and John Catsimatidis would be intrinsic to any run by Bob in 2016 or 2017.  Capano, Eaton and Catsimatidis all worked closely on “The Cat’s” 2013 run for mayor, during which John Catsimatidis almost won the Republican primary.


The others were also well-known to have had long-term associations with Mr. Capano.  Bob Capano ran an office for Bob Turner during Mr. Turner’s tenure as a U.S. Congressman from Brooklyn and Queens until his district was wiped out by the NYS Legislature (including the GOP controlled State Senate).  Curtis Sliwa’s relationship with Bob might actually be the most longstanding, going back to Bob’s days as President of the Brooklyn Young Republican Club, and Sliwa’s own quest for political office in the day.


Also on tonight’s  “Vito & Vito  Show,”  Capano discussed  his new campaign website and various topics that he has been dealing with lately ---  like his personal and on-line opposition to the proposed NYC-paid-for sanitary heroin shooting galleries;  and the now-suddenly-upon-us “bag tax” at supermarkets.

UNTITLED JOTS ABOUT THE LATEST ANTI-TRUMP MSM FRENZY

Maybe,  some or all of Donald Trump's recent female accusers are telling the truth; then again, maybe not..... 

---  HOWEVER, one thing they all do have in common is this:  there's little in the way of hard evidence, corroboration of the facts alleged, contemporaneous reporting-of or complaints-about any of the events to anybody with a duty to take a report or receive a complaint, and/or even very good detail so as to enable anybody to reconstruct exactly when, where and under what circumstances these alleged acts precisely might have occurred.


Interestingly, most of these accusers' reports track pretty closely to what was in the Billy Bush-Donald Trump tape ---  AND  ---  the beauty pageant accuser's versions appear to track with what's in a Howard Stern-Donald Trump tape 


Maybe, more details will be forthcoming today or in the near future  ---  HOWEVER, so far, the current MSM frenzy is based on very, very little..... 


Lastly, for now, why would any of these woman  have ANY REASON not to be telling the truth  ???

---  HMMMM !!!!!  Well, it's not like any of them are actively supporting Hillary Clinton's campaign, or anything like that.....  

---  OOPS !!! It's been disclosed that some of them are.... 


Also, CNN reported that there might be eleven (11) accusers, but I don't know where that number came from and/or how/why CNN believes it to be so

The Sun is Setting on Bay Ridge --- OR --- It looks like it's "Getting Late Early" Below 75th Street

---  Shootings on 73rd Street  ! ! !


---  A woman found beaten in Owl's Head Park ! ! !


---  Anything in "Bay Ridge" below Bay Ridge Parkway sure seems like it has become Sunset Park South  ---  Time to change the name of 69th Street to "South Sunset Park Avenue"


---  It's time to merge the 68th Pct. with the 72nd,  because the cops need to get ahead of this & the bunch in the 68th just don't look like they're up to the necessary "Community Policing" to keep Bay Ridge safe


Forget the headlines.  Just walk on Third or Fifth Avenues below 75th Street.

You know what, start your tour at State Senator Marty Golden's District Office  ---  that's right about the spot where the "Old Neighborhood" becomes a real  >>>  SHIT HOUSE <<<

No wonder Marty Golden wasn't at the OLA Anniversary Mass  ---  he knows that there's nothing left to celebrate there.  BTW, wasn't that joint supposed to be shut down by now ?

The Mainstream Media focuses on the shiny thing of Trump’s eleven year old rowdy & bawdy remarks; pays secondary interest to Assange's Wiki-Leaks drop ---- but the MSM COMPLETELY IGNORES the Russian strategic move of nuclear-capable missiles onto NATO’s doorstep


Major uptick in Russian nuclear brinksmanship should top-off today’s news and the candidates should immediately address it in their 2016 presidential campaigns  ---  NOT Trump’s more-than-ten-year-old lewd remarks on tape from a ‘hot mike”  --  OR  --  even the Assange document drop about Hillary-related material on many fronts 

According to a report in “The Guardian”  ---  “Reports of Iskander-M missiles being moved to outpost between Poland and Lithuania fuels fears that Russia is seeking to expand control of Baltic Sea"


That report goes on to say that “….   Estonian officials have said that Russia appears to be moving powerful, nuclear capable missiles into Kaliningrad, a Russian outpost province sandwiched between Poland and Lithuania along the Baltic coast….   The Iskander-M missiles, which have a range of over 500km, are reportedly being transported by ship from the St Petersburg area. It had previously been reported that the Russians might seek to place the Iskander-M missiles in Kaliningrad but not until 2018-19….   If confirmed, the move would be seen by western governments as another sign that Russia is seeking to establish facts on the ground, from eastern Europe  to the Middle East, before a new US president takes office in January….   Estonian officials said they were monitoring the ship and its contents. The ship, called the Ambal, was due to dock on Friday; reports of the cargo came from Estonian government sources….   An Estonian defence expert said: ‘This weapon is highly sophisticated and there is no comparable weapon in western armoury. It can carry nuclear weapons, change direction mid-flight and fly distances of up to 500km. As such it is capable of threatening Poland, including the US missile defence installations there. You would not change the date of the delivery of a system such as this on a whim. The intention is to make a strong strategic point.’…”   (See “Russia moving nuclear-capable missiles into Kaliningrad, says Estonia” by Patrick Wintour, 10/7/16, The Guardian  [https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/oct/07/russia-moving-nuclear-capable-missiles-into-kaliningrad-says-estonia?CMP=Share_AndroidApp_Add_to_Buffer]).

How is it that this story didn't make the cut for anybody in the US MSM on Friday ???

FLASH UPDATE: THE " 'CAN'T WE JUST DRONE THIS GUY ?' " EDITION

WIKILEAKS GINS UP INTEREST IN PROMISED HILLARY CLINTON-RELATED DATA DROP BY CHANGING SCHEDULED LIVE EVENT AT LONDON EMBASSY TO A TAPED EXPOSITION IN BERLIN  >>>  EARLY ON TUESDAY <<< 

---  BECAUSE OF A SPECIFIC CREDIBLE ASSASSINATION THREAT TO JULIAN ASSANGE


POSSIBLY, ALSO PART OF ITS BUILDUP WAS A WIKILEAKS TWEET ALLEGEDLY QUOTING SEC/STATE HILLARY CLINTON'S PREVIOUSLY SUGGESTING A "DRONE STRIKE" AGAINST JULIAN ASSANGE  ---  NOTING THAT HIS SANCTUARY LOCATION IN LONDON WAS A "SOFT TARGET"


Possibly as part of a possible dramatic buildup to its promised drop by WikiLeaks of some significant material detrimental to Hillary Clinton,  the WikiLeaks folks backed up their claim that Julian Assange was the subject of a specific assassination threat by unnamed conspirators.  However, as part of the backup material, there was certain alleged material, including an HRC quote ---,  which was attribute attributed by a named secondary source to HRC and her U.S. State Department during past deliberations.

Here's the recent Tweet from the folks at WikiLeaks:

"WikiLeaks@wikileaks 14 hours ago
...."

I,  for one,  sure am glad that Hillary Clinton has the "...necessary temperament to be president..."; otherwise, she might do or say something that is really crazy.....

In the middle of the 2016 Campaign for President, are we now going to have a necessary interlude that’s “All About Sex” and Bill Clinton ? ? ?


How many more new “Monicas” have been giving Bill Clinton massages at Bill Clinton’s apartment at the Clinton Library and Museum lately  ???


NY Post article by Ed Klein's opening paragraphs take excerpts from his new anti-Hillary Clinton book,  “Guilty as Sin” and shows the goings-on at Bill's Library and Museum "apartment"


QUERY  ---  What’s Hillary going to do or say about this current crop of  >>> Bill’s “Bimbos” <<<  ? ? ?   --- Certainly as important,  what will Trump do or say about it  ? ? ? 


Today, the NY Post began a feature by Ed Klein with this editorial introduction:   In his new book, "Guilty As Sin," journalist Edward Klein peeks behind the curtain of Bill Clinton’s private penthouse in the presidential library in Little Rock, Ark. Klein claims the ex-president continues his cozy relationships with interns, muses about naked pool parties on the roof, and discusses with advisers how his wife — already scornful of his counsel — should deal with the escalating scandal over her unsecured private e-mail server [italics removed]….” (SeeMassages, red wine, and other secrets from a Bill Clinton intern” by Edward Klein, 10?2/16, NY Post/ News/ Exclusive  [http://nypost.com/2016/10/02/inside-the-penthouse-shenanigans-at-bill-clintons-presidential-library/]).


Ed Klein’s text opens with this”   “….  Bill Clinton was getting a foot massage….   Bill Clinton was getting a foot massage….   “We were on the terrace of his apartment,” recalled the 20-something intern at the William J. Clinton Presidential Library and Museum who was massaging Bill’s feet. “We had a meal served from 42 [the restaurant in the Little Rock library] — ­vegan stuff like kale salad….”  


Then there were a few more paragraphs to provide detail and context, with Klein continuing to quote the young intern masseuse, as follows:   “….  ‘He often invites girls like me who work at the library to his apartment for a glass of red wine and a massage,’ the intern said in an interview for this book. ‘He likes his neck and shoulders massaged because he gets knots in his muscles. But what he really likes is to have his feet massaged. He just kicks off his loafers and socks and puts his feet on the coffee table. That really makes him happy….   ‘Bill is always flirting with the women at the library. He knows everybody by their first name and is incredibly kind and generous. When he talks to you, it’s like you are the only person in the world. I always called him Mr. President, naturally, but one day he looked at me with this horny look and said, ‘Call me Bill.’ I sort of knew then that I was in….   ‘I know what people would say if they knew I gave him a foot massage. But, hey, if it makes him happy, I’m happy to do it. The idea of touching the president of the United States that way is incredibly exciting to me.’…”


‘I know what people would say if they knew I gave him a foot massage. But, hey, if it makes him happy, I’m happy to do it. The idea of touching the president of the United States that way is incredibly exciting to me.’…”


The article then swung over to more mundane matters like Bill Clinton’s phone calls and advice about HRC’s E-mail problems and VIPs that came by to visit WJC at his Presidential Library & Museum bachelor pad and what happened at some of those meetings.
