Trump playing golf
Donald Trump loves to play golf. He has been known to play a round or two almost every day that he can. Even when he was on the campaign trail, he was known to take a quick break to play a few holes. And, now that he’s the President of the United States, he seems to be playing even more.
In fact, just last week, Trump played golf four times in four days. That’s right, four rounds of golf in four days. He played at his private club in Bedminster, New Jersey, and then at his club in Sterling, Virginia. And, on Saturday, he even played a round of golf with Tiger Woods.
Needless to say, Trump loves golf. And, he’s not afraid to show it. In fact, he often tweets about golf, and he even posts pictures and videos of himself playing.
So, if you’re a fan of golf, or of Donald Trump, then you’ll definitely want to keep an eye on his Twitter account. Who knows, you might even get to see him play a round or two in person!
Donald Trump loves golf. He loves to play it, he loves to watch it, and he loves to talk about it. He even wrote a book about it. But there’s one thing that Trump doesn’t love about golf: the rules.
Trump has a long history of breaking the rules of golf. He once hit a ball into a crowd of people and then claimed that he didn’t see them. He has also been known to take more than the allotted number of shots on a hole, and he has even been caught cheating.
But Trump’s love of golf doesn’t just stop at playing by his own rules. He also loves to make up his own rules. In 2015, Trump proposed a new rule for the sport of golf. He suggested that players should be able to move their ball to a more favorable position after it has landed in a water hazard.
Needless to say, Trump’s proposal was met with a lot of criticism from the golf community. But that didn’t stop Trump from making another proposal in 2016. This time, he suggested that the sport of golf should do away with the 18-hole course and instead be played on a nine-hole course.
Once again, Trump’s proposal was met with a lot of criticism. But that didn’t deter him from making yet another proposal in 2017. This time, Trump suggested that the game of golf should be played with a smaller ball.
Trump’s constant proposals to change the game of golf have led many to believe that he doesn’t really understand the game. But Trump has insisted that he does understand the game, and he even claimed that he could beat Tiger Woods in a game of golf.
Whether you love him or hate him, there’s no denying that Donald Trump is a controversial figure. But one thing is for sure: Trump loves golf.…
Eleven Things You Should Know About Hillary Clinton
Secretary Clinton helped restore America’s leadership and stature in the world during a time of global challenges and transitions. Secretary Clinton worked relentlessly to renew American diplomacy and develop partnerships by flying nearly a million miles for hundreds of talks with foreign leaders in 112 countries. As America’s senior diplomat, Secretary Clinton understood the significance of engaging the public and took diplomacy directly to people throughout the world. Just as she was as a senator, Secretary Clinton was a workhorse, often taking on difficult topics and confronting them personally across the world.
Secretary Clinton forged and maintained a coalition to enact the strongest sanctions in Iran’s history. Secretary Clinton helped impose the strongest sanctions in Iran’s history by getting Russia and China on board. Clinton “certainly went out all the stops to get Russia and particularly China…on board.” For the first time since President Obama took office, “Hillary Clinton ramped up sanctions that actually pushed the Iranians come to the table.”
The New START Treaty with Russia was a major accomplishment for Secretary Clinton. Secretary Clinton had an active role in achieving a missile limitation agreement with Russia, trying to drive it through the Senate and winning more than the requisite two-thirds majority. She signed the deal with her Russian counterpart in Munich. Because of the treaty’s passage, the number of nuclear missile launchers will be reduced. To put it another way, the globe is a safer place.
The raid that brought Osama bin Laden to justice was backed by Secretary Clinton. Pentagon chief Robert Gates proposed an airstrike with no troops on the ground, according to Brian Williams of NBC. Both CIA Director Panetta and Secretary of State Clinton endorsed a Special Forces raid.”
By brokering an end to hostilities between Israel and the Palestinians in Gaza, Secretary Clinton prevented a full-scale conflict. After eight days of fighting, Secretary Clinton and Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi agreed to a ceasefire in Gaza. Politico said that “Secretary of State Hillary Clinton got a Gaza cease-fire right at the time hope appeared dead for a speedy halt to the fighting,” in an article headed “Hillary Clinton achieves Gaza cease fire success.”
Clinton played an important part in ending one war and helping to arrange the conclusion of another. With the agreement of all NATO members to set up a post-withdrawal assistance plan, Secretary Clinton worked closely with colleagues in the Department of Defense and was a member of President Obama’s national security team. “It’s all a result of the wonderful job that Hillary and her staff performed, and the State Department did in concert with our national security team,” President Obama told CBS’ 60 Minutes in 2009.
The “pivot to Asia” strategy of the United States relied heavily on Secretary Clinton. “The ‘pivot’ to East Asia will undoubtedly be Obama’s most lasting geopolitical triumph… [but] it is Clinton’s also,” writes Martin Indyk of the Brookings Institute in Foreign Policy. At the key moment of July 2010, she arrived in Vietnam to reaffirm …
Tricks and Lies: RNC Continues Campaign of Desperation…Sound Familiar?
The right wing continued their campaign of desperation and dirty tricks today, the latest in a run of attacks by Republicans, who are so terrified about a hypothetical Hillary Clinton candidacy that they will say and do anything it takes.
LIES: This week, Republican political operators tried to circulate a vicious rumour that Hillary Clinton has brain damage as a result of an injury that they previously accused her of fake. They just can’t keep their lies straight.
TRICKS: With the release of a new research memo titled “Reliving Hillary’s History: DNC Fundraising Scandals During The Clinton Presidency,” the Republicans are trying to trick the public into believing that this attack from the ‘90s is new – but the American people are smarter than the Republicans think and refuse to fall for their tricks.
TRUTH: This is old news that, unlike the paper it’s printed on, can’t merely be recycled and made fresh again. It was much ado about nothing when it was news two decades ago, and it’s surely not news anymore.
The hearings investigating 1996 funding were placed “on indefinite pause because of a lack of public and political support and a lack of critical witnesses and evidence, according to [former Senator Fred] Thompson. ‘I will not be convening hearings merely for the sake of having hearings,’ Thompson added. ” Republicans sought “to use the hearings to ruin Clinton, Gore and the Democratic Party.” [The Houston Chronicle, 11/01/97].
Sound familiar? The Republicans are adopting those same dirty techniques today. They evidently have nothing better in their armoury to deploy, or else they wouldn’t have to resort to these desperate, dirty techniques and lies.

Correct The Records Formation
Correct the Record was spun out from American Bridge in May of this year and is now a separate legal business. After being allegedly hacked by Russian intelligence operatives, Clinton campaign lawyer Marc Elias prepared a document expressing confidence that Correct the Record and the Clinton campaign could lawfully coordinate. The memo was made public after it was purportedly leaked by the hackers. Campaigns are prohibited from working with super PACs under FEC laws.
Coordination could be allowed under FEC regulations because Correct the Record’s messages aren’t “public communications,” the committee said. Campaign and super PAC were able to work together after all because of the FEC’s final decision.
An accusation of campaign financing law violations was brought against Correct the Record in 2016 by the left-wing Campaign Legal Center. It’s a “brazen attempt to undercut the campaign finance laws,” an attorney with the organisation said. Correct the Record personnel were also accused of doing opposition research, training surrogates, pitching stories to journalists, and leading “quick reaction” activities on behalf of the Clinton campaign, according to the article…………………………………… The accusations were refuted by Correct the Record.
Correct the Record has gotten away with breaking campaign financing regulations before. Correct the Record was able to secure free airtime for an anti-Donald Trump video in May of that year on cable news channels around the country. It produced videos, but exclusively shared them on its own website and social media pages, never anywhere else. This was a “charade,” according to Campaign Legal Center attorney Paul S. Ryan, who said the committee’s actions were “illegal” and “absurd” since they took advantage of the internet exemption designed specifically for campaign volunteers and bloggers.
Federal Election Commission (FEC) has been sued by conservative nonprofit Patriots Foundation on August 13, 2020, for failing to act on an earlier complaint it had made against political strategist David Brock and four of his organisations in April. It was also alleged that David Brock had illegally coordinated with Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign through the employment of Correct the Record, American Bridge 21st Century, and the American Bridge Foundation.
In an email obtained by WikiLeaks, Clinton press secretary Nick Merrill discusses utilising Correct the Record (CtR) and Media Matters for America (MMFA) to counter a Vanity Fair piece criticizm of Clinton vice chair Huma Abedin. As stated in the email, “We have MMFA, CtR, and core surrogates lined up, which we can expand on tomorrow……” Shortly thereafter, Media Matters penned an essay in response to Vanity Fair’s indictment.
The pro-Clinton group, Hillary for America, contributed $275,615 of the $8.5 million in donations collected by Correct the Record during the 2016 election campaign. Correct the Record believes it may escape the coordination restriction by relying on a 2006 FEC regulation that defined anything put online for free, like as blogs, to be exempt from regulation.”
“The ‘Internet exemption’ declared that such free postings do not constitute campaign expenditures, allowing independent groups to engage with candidates about the information they post …
Bernie Sanders Brushes Off Clinton Super PAC Attacks
In the face of a well-oiled political machine bent on disseminating false information about him to the media, Vermont senator Bernie Sanders did what he does best: he sniffed and turned to the moral of the story.
As Sanders explains in an interview for this week’s cover story, “that’s what negative campaigning is all about,” he says in response to an attack on him by a Hillary Clinton-affiliated super PAC, Correct the Record.
Surrogates for Hillary Clinton unleashed a barrage of attacks on Bernie Sanders this week, connecting him to the socialist dictatorial president of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez, in opposition research supplied to a reporter. Sanders told TIME that Vermont was the sixth state to acquire subsidised Venezuelan heating oil under a deal he arranged with the Venezuelan government.
In Sanders’ perspective, it’s “preposterous” to link that to all of Chavez’s views or deeds. This is the kind of politics I’m trying to change, I think it’s quite bad.”
Candidates who don’t play politics like their rivals are likely to provide this response. Sanders abhors the dominant brand, which he describes as “barbed attacks, research supplied to favoured reporters in private emails, well-funded research machines”. Only a small crew at his headquarters in Vermont has the manpower to dig up dirt on his rivals, so he lacks the resources to do so. Sanders doesn’t know how to use this tactic. “Soap opera,” Sanders mocks, dismissively.
His would be a losing position in a conventional election year. There is no such thing as a “normal” year when it comes to politics. As a result of his above-the-belt strategy, Sanders has drawn crowds as large as 28,000 in Oregon and 11,000 in Arizona, reflecting the integrity of the movement he is working to establish. Bernie Sanders’ “political revolution”—a far-left programme that includes universal healthcare, free tuition at public colleges, a $15 minimum salary, and thorough campaign finance reform—doesn’t dwell on personal slights long.
Dozens of thousands of people have asked Bernie Sanders for advice on how to get involved in his campaign, from setting up tables at farmers’ markets to canvassing door-to-door. New Hampshire palliative care doctor Bob Friedlander and Tennessee food truck owner Corbin Trent are just two of the many Bernie Sanders supporters who have given up their jobs to devote themselves to the campaign.
There is a consensus that Sanders’ credentials as a longtime activist and his progressive vision of universal healthcare and a trillion-dollar jobs programme appeal to these voters.
If he fails to break the stranglehold of Hillary Clinton on the African-American vote, most experts believe that Sanders’ cause is doomed to fail.
Bernie Sanders claims that he is engaged in this fight to put Washington’s interests in jeopardy. An issue-based campaign to rally millions of people is at the heart of his vision. The billionaires’ “greed is what we’re against,” he tells TIME. As a result, “and they’re going to fight back hard,” he says. Millions of people must stand up and decide to participate if …
All About Democratic/Pro-Hillary Clinton Super PAC
“Strategic research and rapid reaction team created to defend Hillary Clinton from unfounded attacks,” Correct the Record said on its website. The group’s first election cycle as a super PAC is underway.
Correct the Record is a “Carey committee,” or “hybrid PAC,” according to the Center for Responsive Politics. That means it can “keep two different accounts; one for contributions to federal candidates and parties, and the other for independent expenditures, to which limitless contributions can be made,” says the center.
Correct the Record was founded by David Brock, the lefty website Media Matters’ creator. American Bridge 21st Century, a leftist political action committee (PAC), had been Correct the Record’s parent organization until May 2015, when Correct the Record announced that it was breaking away from its parent organization to become its own PAC. After announcing that American Bridge President Brad Woodhouse would take a leave of absence to become president of Correct the Record, Brock also revealed that Kathleen Kennedy Townsend would head the PAC’s Board of Directors.
Correct the Record intends to cooperate closely with the Clinton campaign, in contrast to other independent-expenditure-only super PACs that are forbidden by the Federal Election Commission from coordinating with candidates or political parties. That’s because, according to the group, they don’t intend to spend any money on advertising. It would instead utilize its website and social media tools to rebut charges made against Clinton.
Adrienne Watson, a Correct the Record spokeswoman, told the Washington Post: “The FEC rules clearly allow some activities — in particular, activity on an organization’s website, through email, and on social media — to be lawfully coordinated with candidates and political parties. “. Non-federal entities have relied on this exclusion innumerable times. Correct the Record’s only distinction is that it makes the names of its donors and expenditures public.
An American Priorities ’16 fundraising organization was announced in July by the New York Times and Priorities USA Action, two pro-Clinton super PACs. A total of 20% of the funds earned through American Priorities ’16 will go to Correct the Record, with gifts of up to $1 million going to Priorities USA, per the agreement. Donors who give $1 million or more will see $200,000 go to Correct the Record and the rest to Priorities USA, the Times reports.
According to the Center for Responsive Politics, Correct the Record was one of the two largest “Carey committees” in terms of fundraising in 2015. According to the FEC’s mid-year filing, the super PAC raised over $1.4 million from 13 major donors and spent approximately $334,000 as of the end of June 2015. (You can find all of its FEC filings here.)
Former San Francisco Symphony President John D. Goldman and his wife Marcia, who together donated $250,000, were among the PAC’s top donors this election year. Colorado millionaire philanthropist Patricia Stryker also donated $250,000. $150,000 was provided by Barbara Lee, the founder of the Barbara Lee Family Foundation, which aims to promote “women’s equality and representation” in the arts …
Fighting Hillary Clinton’s Online Trolls for $1 Million Is No Small Task
Hillary Clinton has a reputation as a thief and a liar on the dark web. The former first lady and current Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton is the target of several hateful Facebook groups, including “Stop Hillary in 2016,” “Americans Against Hillary Clinton.” Hashtags like #NeverClinton, #NeverHillary, and #CrookedHillary are being used by Twitter users to express their disgust.
Clinton supporters aren’t just sitting on the sidelines waiting for someone else to take action. Correct the Record, a pro-Hillary super PAC, stated in April that it will invest more than $1 million in staff and infrastructure for a digital task force to combat internet attacks against Clinton and her allies. The group, dubbed Barrier Breakers 2016, will “engage in online messaging for Secretary Clinton and strike back against assailants on social media,” according to a news release announcing the endeavour. What’s the worst that might happen?
As a result of this, Clinton’s alleged inability to inspire support was given credence for the first time. She and her friends’ willingness to spend enormous sums of money to thwart her opponents was revealed. Laughter and sarcasm erupted. According to progressive web series The Young Turks, “They’ll pay $1 million to go out there and attack average folks who support Bernie Sanders” when the news first came, John Iadarola mused.
Correct the Record was eager to clarify that it has no plans to launch its own attacks. A spokesman for the super PAC, Elizabeth Shappell, told The Daily Beast in April that the group’s focus is on spreading messages in support of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. No sponsored public communications, Correct the Record maintains, and it can lawfully collaborate with the Clinton campaign. Staying positive, it claimed, was the best way to combat internet attacks on Clinton and her supporters. But how precisely is the super PAC seeking to accomplish this—and will it succeed?
