Hillary Calls Love Of Her Life, Huma Abedin, "One of My Staffers"

Or, maybe "staffers" is an admission that Huma uses the Strap-on on Hillary.

I would have thought it was the other way around, but ...


Huma Abedin Hasn’t Been On Clinton’s Campaign Plane For Three Days

And, by the way, if you think it is an overstatement for me to call Huma the love of Hillary's life, listne to what the CNN correspondent says of Huma's relationship to Hillary:

"The point that you (the anchorwoman) make about her being a second daughter is right. People have talked for a couple of days trying to get at the connection here. I DON'T THINK YOU CAN OVERSTATE HOW CLOSE THESE TWO ARE. And second daughter is just one aspect. Her official role is HIllary Clinton's right hand woman. But it's not just hand. It's arm, it's brain, it's EVERYTHING. She is the person who thinks what Hillary Clinton is going to think before she thinks it. She the person who makes things happen. That's how close they are and have been for years and years."

White House: Obama Doesn’t Believe Comey Is Trying To Influence The Election

I've always thought Obama hated Hillary.

And, I have always believed that, when it came right down to it, Obama would throw Hillary under the biggest bus of them all: PRISON.

From Politico:
The White House said on Monday that President Barack Obama does not believe that FBI Director James Comey is trying to influence the election with his decision to review new evidence in the probe into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state. 
“The president’s assessment of his integrity and his character has not changed,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters during the daily briefing. 
“The president does not believe that Director Comey is intentionally trying to influence the outcome of an election. The president does not believe that he is secretly strategizing to benefit one candidate or one political party.”

Free Trade, Borders, and The Destruction of the American Economy

"Free Trade" depends upon perfect labor mobility: people must be able to move to where jobs are. There's just one problem: We have national and cultural boundaries that will not go away. In practice this means "Free Trade" destroys the wealth of first world nations, with the middle class destroyed first.

Trump Called It A Year Ago, Predicted Anthony Weiner Would “Tell The World” About Hillary Clinton’s Emails

The reason Trump can predict something like this is because he has the tremendously successful man's understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of people.

From the Daily Mail:
GOP nominee tweeted about Huma Abedin's 'PR husband' in August 2015 
Anthony Weiner had just begun a two-month stint at PR firm MWW 
Trump said that month that Abedin would tell Weiner 'all these secrets' 
FBI announced Friday it would investigate more Clinton emails uncovered during Weiner probe 
Donald Trump once predicted that Anthony Weiner would ‘tell the world’ about Hillary Clinton’s emails – a statement that has found renewed accuracy in light of the FBI’s latest probe. 
The GOP nominee tweeted in August last year: 
‘It came out that Huma Abedin knows all about Hillary’s private illegal emails. Huma’s PR husband, Anthony Weiner, will tell the world.’ 
Weiner at the time had just begun what turned out to be a two-month stint at PR firm MWW. That was after Weiner’s second sex scandal and failed run for New York City mayor. 
The disgraced congressman did not ‘tell the world’ about Clinton’s emails – but his laptop prompted the FBI to further investigate her handling of classified information. 
Investigators found emails belonging to Abedin on Weiner’s laptop, which they had seized as part of an investigation into Weiner. 
They were looking into allegations that Weiner exchanged explicit messages and photos with a 15-year-old girl. 
Trump in July last year previously bashed Abedin during a news conference. 
‘I don’t like Huma going home at night and telling Anthony Weiner all of these secrets,’ he said. 
Trump, who has abundantly trashed Weiner on Twitter throughout his repeated scandals, wrote in September 2013: ‘Huma should dump the sicko Weiner. He is a calamity that is bringing her down with him.’ 
Abedin left Weiner in August after it emerged he had sent an explicit photo of his crotch to another woman with his now four-year-old son.

Hitler Finds Out Hillary Is Under Renewed Investigation By the FBI

#Doug Schoen has just renounced his support of Hillary Clinton due to the Email scandal - FEARS CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS

This is good.

But, although Schoen has worked for Hillary's campaign in the past, he is more of an old-fashioned Democrat (like Epa and I) not your standard Democrat:
Schoen said that President Obama should not seek reelection in 2012. He has stated that the President has divided the country along partisan lines, and said that the Affordable Care Act had been a "disaster" for the Democratic Party.
Schoen has been critical of the Occupy Wall Street protest movement. In a Wall Street Journal op-ed, he wrote, "President Obama and the Democratic leadership are making a critical error in embracing the Occupy Wall Street movement—and it may cost them the 2012 election." 
He believes that the protesters represent "an unrepresentative segment of the electorate that believes in radical redistribution of wealth, civil disobedience and, in some instances, violence," and that their common bond is "a deep commitment to left-wing policies." 
Schoen believes that the Democratic Party should not appeal to voters who support taxing oil companies and the rich, but rather to voters in the middle who want lower taxes.
Truthfully, it is almost impossible for a man like him to support the modern day Democrat Party.

Warrant Granted To FBI To Search Huma Abedin's Emails

The FBI already had the emails in their possession. They had been waiting for the Justice Department to grant a warrant so they could read them. Warrant granted.

Democrats, including Hillary herself, are saying Comey is violating the Hatch Act - that he is interfering with the Election - by announcing an investigation just days before we vote.

Nickarama at Weasel Zippers explains the particulars:
Comey having testified before Congress in their investigations concerning Hillary’s emails had a continuing obligation to update his testimony, that is that the investigation was re-ignited or continuing, after he had told them it was closed. 
Had he not done so, he could have been accused of lying to Congress and charged with contempt of Congress. 
Had he done so and then brought this up after the election, he would have been accused of hiding the information to protect Hillary. 
That’s why it’s fundamentally different from talking about another case, such as the alleged case into Trump’s Russian ties, because he had no testimony about that before Congress, so no requirement to inform them. 
It’s also probably not a Hatch Act violation because Comey is an appointee of the President, with approval of the Senate responsible for federal policy. That would mean he was exempt from the Hatch Act. 
But even if it were ruled that it applied, they would still have to show an intentional violation, and doing ones job in an investigation would not be a violation. Obama cabinet secretaries who were deemed to have violated the spirit of the Hatch Act, Kathleen Sebelius and Joaquin Castro, both of whom blatantly politicked for Hillary Clinton, were simply told, ‘don’t do it again’.

Former FBI Official: FBI Has An ‘Intensive Investigation’ Ongoing Into Clinton Foundation


EXCLUSIVE: Resignation letters piling up from disaffected FBI agents, his wife urging him to admit he was wrong: Why Director Comey jumped at the chance to reopen Hillary investigation

From the Daily Mail:
James Comey revived the investigation of Clinton's email server as he could no longer resist mounting pressure by mutinous agents, sources say 
The atmosphere at the FBI has been toxic ever since Jim announced last July that he wouldn't recommend an indictment against Hillary 
He told his wife that he was depressed by the stack of resignation letters piling up on his desk from disaffected agents 
Comey was also worried that Republicans would accuse him of granting Hillary political favoritism after the presidential election 
When new emails allegedly linked to Hillary's personal server turned up in Abedin and Anthony Weiner's computer, Comey jumped at the excuse

Breaking: Anthony Weiner is said to be cooperating with the FBI investigation


Catherine Herridge just reported that it’s not a laptop. It is a desktop, that Huma and Weiner shared.


From the Washington Examiner:
Former Democratic congressman Anthony Weiner is cooperating with authorities in the FBI investigation of his laptop that contains emails that prompted the Federal Bureau of Investigation to reopen its probe into Hillary Clinton’s use of an unauthorized email server. 
The news that Weiner is cooperating, reported by Fox News’ Bret Baier on Sunday, would help law enforcement with the investigation, since officials didn’t yet have a warrant to read through the material found on the device. 
Though FBI Director James Comey told lawmakers Friday his agency found emails related to Hillary Clinton’s private email server, he didn’t yet have a warrant to read them. 
As of Saturday night, the FBI had not received a search warrant from the Justice Department, an unnamed agency official told Yahoo News, but the agency was in talks to get one. 
When Comey wrote the letter, “he had no idea what was in the content of the emails,” said one official.

Doug Band and the Ruse of the Century

This FBI email probe is a ruse and nothing more. 
The real story is with the Doug Band memo, 
because the Doug Band memo is where the money is! 
Always follow the money!

AMAZING: FBI Diverts Attention From Doug Band Memo, Reopens HRC Email Probe 
Here we go again folks…the ruse has begun! Yesterday on October 28, 2016 the FBI released a letter to Congress stating that Jim Comey and crew have decided to open the Hillary Clinton email investigation once again. The MSM has directed all of its smoke and mirrors at this new turn of events. 
But what does this mean? Let’s stop for a minute and take a look around, let’s use our logic and look at these six major facts. 
1. In February of 2016 the FBI officially admits its investigations into HRC email server. 
2. In September of 2016 Congress begin hearings into HRC email usage. 
3. In September of 2016 the FBI closed the HRC email case WITHOUT electing to prosecute. 
4. In October of 2016 Wikileaks begins public disclosure of hacked Podesta emails. 
5. On the morning of October 27, 2016 Wikileaks releases the Doug Band Memo. 
6. On the evening of October 28, 2016 with only 11 days until the general election the FBI reopens the HRC email case. 
Now before we go any further let’s take a look at the headlines leading up to the FBI announcing the reopening of the HRC email probe. 
On October 27, 2016 a hacked Podesta email produced a 12 page memo written by a man named Doug Band. Who is Doug Band and why does this matter? 
Doug Band is a cofounder of the Clinton Foundation (CGI) and longtime friend and business partner of the Clintons. Doug Band’s relationship is summed up pretty well in an article released by “The Atlantic” the morning of October 28, 2016:
“He helped launch the Clinton Foundation, came up with the idea for the Clinton Global Initiative, brokered deals for paid speeches that enriched Clinton, and then started a private consulting firm called Teneo that made the Foundation, Bill Clinton, and Band himself even wealthier.”   
Notice the time frame? On October 27, 2016 and the morning of October 28, 2016 the headlines were filled with revelations about the Doug Band memo, even the MSM were on to the story. 
But, by 3:00PM EST on the same date Comey and the Keystone FBI sends a letter to the U.S. Congress that they are reopening the HRC email probe? 
Are you kidding me? 
Not only that, but the FBI and its sources leak that the reason for reopening the HRC email probe is due to new emails found on electronic devices owned by Huma Abideen and Anthony Weiner. OMG, are we buying this?

Doug Band and CGI On Morning Joe "It doesn't smell doesn't smell good at all!"

Let’s stop for a minute put on our aluminum foil logic hats and ask an important question… 
when did the FBI get Huma and Anthony’s devices? 
The FBI began investigating Weiner on September 27, 2016. You mean to tell me it took a full month before the FBI got the devices that supposedly have these new emails? 
A full month to realize that these devices have new emails that may or may not involve HRC? REALLY??? A MONTH!!! Are you kidding me? My keen logical mind doesn’t buy it! 
But seriously folks, let’s turn our attention back to the Doug Band memo. What does this 12 page memo written by Doug Band tell us? It tells a lot folks. It’s the smoking gun into the Clinton financial dealings with huge corporations, government and political elites. 
The memo is the blueprint and playbook that outlines the twisted and corrupt dealings of the global power elite explaining at the highest level the inner workings of CGI and its relationship to the entities that run and control this country and the world. The memo, a front page headline and major revelation on October 27, 2016 will now be a back page also ran on October 28, 2016, as the news of the FBI email probe gains momentum. 
We are being diverted and distracted once again by the MSM and those in power. This FBI email probe is a ruse and nothing more. The real story is with the Doug Band memo, because the Doug Band memo is where the money is! Always follow the money! 
C’mon people, the FBI reopens the HRC email probe 11 days before the election? 11 days? Are we awake at all? This “11” symbolism in and of itself should tell us that the global elite are behind this ruse. Let’s not forget the FBI should have prosecuted HRC for her email usage months ago. Jim Comey said there wasn’t enough evidence to prove intent…really? 
This same FBI who, even after admitting that HRC deleted 33,000 emails after the emails were subpoenaed by the U.S. Congress, admitted that she sent and received classified emails using an unsecured personal server, admitted she lied to the U.S. Congress and to the American people refused to move forward with a prosecution. And, our U.S. Congress let this decision stand!!! Now, the same FBI Keystone Cops and Jim Comey are reopening the case because of new emails that have been found on electronic devices that were never in Clinton’s possession? I’m not surprised!!! 
This whole thing sinks of Alinsky! It is a complete farce and meant as nothing more than a diversion to the real story, which is the Doug Band revelation…this is where the corruption is, follow the money!!! 
Let’s look at who is implicated in the Doug Band memo. Companies implicated directly by the memo include Coke-a-Cola and Dow Chemical, UBS Global Wealth Management, Ericson, BHP Billiton, and Barclays to name a few. 
How many more companies had dealings with CGI and their corruption and were not directly implicated in the memo? Will we ever find out now? We are talking about some pretty heavy hitters here! We are talking about the world’s power elite! We are also talking about some pretty typical diversion tactics here as well. I think what we are seeing here is a sacrifice of mega proportions by the global elite. I think the global elite are sacrificing Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin to save themselves. 
It’s a fact that Huma Abedin is a Saudi spy, no logical mind can deny this fact.  It’s also a fact that Huma and Hillary are in a homosexual relationship. Hillary is a pervert just like Bill, and the elites have always had the dirt on her. She is a tool of the elite and she is expendable! 
I think what we are seeing here is an attempt by the global elite to stall or even stop any further investigation into the Doug Band revelation, I think there are some pretty scared elites out there and they are willing to sacrifice Hillary and Huma even if it means Hillary loses the election! I think we are getting to the point that the elites feel that this nationalist movement here in America lead by Trump needs to be appeased…that appeasement is the severed heads of Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin! 
We’ll see in the coming days!!!

Theory: Hillary and Huma Were Using Anthony Weiner's Email Address As a "Digital Drop Box" In Order To Hide Communicate Information Between Each Other, Yet Ensure It's Secrecy

Weasel Zippers reports the following:

Wildly Conflicting Information About What FBI Has Actually Found In Renewed Hillary Probe…

Here is an idea given to me by Tammy Swofford.

There's one Theory which could accommodate all of the above statements, under which all of those statements above could all be true at the same time.

Hillary and Huma Abedin could have been using Anthony Weiner's email address - or, even better, a fake "Anthony Weiner" email address only they have access to - as a Digital Drop Box.

A Digital Drop Box is a way for two or more people to communicate with each other, by sharing an email account which all could log onto periodically in order to send and retrieve information.

In a sense, a Digital Drop Box serves as a Virtual Private Network between multiple people.

One can simply write an email - NOT SEND IT - and just let it sit in the Draft File. Then the second person comes along and opens the emails in the Draft File and reads them - they add their two own communication to the Draft, and then the first person can come back and read what the second person had to say.

And such a Digital Drop Box is not limited to two people. It is accessible by as many people as have access to the email password.

Jihadist use these types of Digital Drop Boxes to hide communication from the CIA and other intelligence operations.

An entire office full of people - say the Hillary Clinton State Dept. office for instance - could communicate entirely offline - entirely without using official channels -  by using such a Digital Drop Box.

If Hillary and Huma Abedin were using such a Digital Drop Box built off of Anthony Weiner's private email address - or even a email address that was created to look as if it belonged to Anthony Weiner - then all of the above statements would be true.

--- the emails would not be - technically - to or from Hillary Clinton or Huma Abedin ...

and yet

--- the correspondence would be to and from Hillary and Huma Abedin

--- the emails would not necessarily have been "from Hillary Clinton's server"

--- the emails could be found stored on a computer belonging to Anthony Weiner  ....

All these statements would be true at the same time.

I think Tammy's theory is correct.

Anyone else have any input?

Not A Game Changer? Hillary Said She Had "Factored In" The Issue of The Missing Emails

Last week there was a weeklong anticipation of some video Project Veritas was going to drop "last" Monday which would force Donna Brazile to resign. The PV video WAS explosive, but not as anticipated. There was also hints of another hacker from Australia dumping 33K missing emails "last week". By mid-day Friday, we saw a steady roll out of WikiLeaks continue - damning Progressives well enough, but the anticipated drop from another hacker, had not materialized. 
Then, Comey makes his surprise announcement that the FBI has reopened Hillary's e-mail case. 
What makes MR's suggestion plausible is Hillary's response to Comey's shift...during the Q&A she stated that the Clinton Campaign had "factored in" the issue of the missing emails.
Any question about media complicity vanishes with today's headlines:

Ay Yi Yi: No Mas "rrrRemittances"?!??!??!?

MEXICAN PESO CRASHES Following News on FBI Reopening Hillary Investigation

STROKING GUN: "Tens of Thousands" of Hillary Emails Found On Anthony Weiner's "Device" - Was Weiner Serving as an Email Launderer?

From the New York Times:
WASHINGTON — A new trove of emails that appear pertinent to the now-closed investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server was discovered after the F.B.I. seized at least one electronic device shared by Anthony D. Weiner and his estranged wife, Huma Abedin, a top aide to Mrs. Clinton, federal law enforcement officials said Friday. 
The F.B.I. is investigating illicit text messages that Mr. Weiner, a former Democratic congressman from New York, sent to a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina. 
The bureau told Congress on Friday that it had uncovered new emails related to the Clinton case — one federal official said they numbered in the tens of thousands. 
In a letter to Congress, the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, said that emails had surfaced in an unrelated case, and that they “appear to be pertinent to the investigation.” 
Mr. Comey said the F.B.I. was taking steps to “determine whether they contain classified information, as well as to assess their importance to our investigation.” 
He said he did not know how long it would take to review the emails, or whether the new information was significant. 
"Tens of Thousands" of emails? Was Anthony Weiner serving as a Email Launderer for Clinton?

In other words, were Hillary and Huma - and possibly others - sending information to Anthony Weiner, so that it would be off the radar, before forwarding it on to their originally intended target?

Looks like Trump was already suspicious:


FBI Director Comey Announces The FBI Is Reopening The Criminal Investigation Into Hillary's Private Email Use!!!


FBI probing new Clinton emails

The FBI is probing new emails related to Hillary Clinton, FBI Director James Comey said in a Friday letter.
"In previous congressional testimony, I 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," Comey wrote.
"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," he added.
"Although the FBI cannot yet assess whether or not this material may be signifcant, 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," Comey concluded.
Stocks turned negative after the report of the new probe. Many analysts have said that markets were pricing in a Clinton victory in November.
The letter was addressed to several lawmakers who chaired committees relevant to the FBI investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server.


Ace of Spades reports:
Is this what this is all about? 
Three days ago Paul Sperry reported that the Platte River employee who BleachBitted Hillary's emails only did so to the file that he gave to Hillary and her lawyers -- he might have a "transfer file" that he didn't perform that operation on. 
Which could mean the FBI can now look at them.
In a May interview with FBI agents, an executive with the Denver contractor that maintained Clinton’s private server revealed that an underling didn’t bleach-clean all her subpoenaed emails, just ones he stored in a data file he used to transfer the emails from the server to Clinton’s aides, who in turn sorted them for delivery to Congress. 
The Platte River Networks executive, whose name was redacted from the interview report, said PRN tech Paul Combetta “created a ‘vehicle’ to transfer email files from the live mailboxes of [Clinton Executive Services Corp.] email accounts [and] then later used BleachBit software to shred the ‘vehicle,’ but the email content still existed in the live email accounts.” 
Unless one of Clinton’s aides had the capability to log in to the PRN server as an administrator and remove a mailbox, her archived mailboxes more than likely still reside somewhere in that system. And they may also materialize on an internal “shared drive” that PRN created to control access to the Clinton email accounts among PRN employees.  
PRN has been under FBI order to preserve all emails and other evidence since the start of its investigation last year. Clinton’s missing “personal” emails may also be captured on a Google server. 
According to FBI notes, Combetta “transferred all of the Clinton email content to a personal Google email address he created.” 
Only the FBI never subpoenaed Google to find out. 
The FBI documents also reveal that Hillary’s server was mirrored on a cloud server in Pennsylvania maintained by Datto Inc., a tech firm that performs cloud-to-cloud data protection. When PRN contracted with Datto, it requested that Hillary’s server be backed up locally and privately. But the techs forgot to order the private node, and they sent the server backup data “remotely to Datto’s secure cloud and not to a local private node.” The FBI never subpoenaed Datto’s server, either.

Obama Administration Refusing to Comply With Investigation Into $1.7 Billion in Cash Payments to Iran

From The Free Beacon:
Attorney General Loretta Lynch is declining to comply with an investigation by leading members of Congress about the Obama administration’s secret efforts to send Iran $1.7 billion in cash earlier this year, prompting accusations that Lynch has “pleaded the Fifth” Amendment to avoid incriminating herself over these payments, according to lawmakers and communications exclusively obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. 
Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) and Rep. Mike Pompeo (R., Kan.) initially presented Lynch in October with a series of questions about how the cash payment to Iran was approved and delivered. 
In an Oct. 24 response, Assistant Attorney General Peter Kadzik responded on Lynch’s behalf, refusing to answer the questions and informing the lawmakers that they are barred from publicly disclosing any details about the cash payment, which was bound up in a ransom deal aimed at freeing several American hostages from Iran.

How Target's Bathroom Policy Killed TGT Stock

From Cabot Investing:
I was incredulous at Target’s bathroom policy. Announced in April, the company said that it would begin to allow men to use the women's bathrooms in its stores. I immediately knew that Target’s revenue would drop, because its customer base would become disenfranchised. 
How did Target’s management team not know this? Was there an executive meeting wherein the CEO and the marketing department discussed the pros and cons of this pending decision? Or did the decision solidify during a Kum ba yah moment between martinis at an executive retreat? 
We all know the "pros" of Target’s bathroom policy: people want an ideal world where everybody is safe and feels good about themselves. But lots of us foresaw the "cons": if you allow men into women’s bathrooms, there will be an increase in crime against women and children, who happen to be Target’s customer base. 
This is a no-brainer. 
Inevitably, lots of consumers felt threatened that a major American institution—Target Corp.—was announcing open season on their loved ones’ safety. And they reacted by boycotting Target. 
This wasn’t a tiny boycott. It was national in scope, with 1.4 million people signing a pledge to boycott the stores. I live in Colorado, where "men in women's bathrooms" became law in May 2008. 
That was the day I realized that I could no longer send my daughters into public restrooms alone. So I understood the public's outrage over Target’s bathroom policy. However, Target’s subsequent quarterly sales weakness took investors by surprise, because Wall Street didn’t cover the boycott in their research reports. 
Even today, in the three analyst reports on Target that I reviewed from three major research sources, there was not a word about the boycott. Again, Kum ba yah. 
When Research Reports Avoid Uncomfortable Truths 
A stock analyst’s job is to report what’s happening with a company, and make estimates as to how it will affect a company’s bottom line and its share price. But if Wall Street analysts won’t do it, I will. Because when research reports dodge uncomfortable truths, investors can’t make well-informed buy and sell decisions. 
The boycott has been in place since April, and Target got burned. For the second consecutive quarter, sales were down. 
"In the second quarter, our No. 1 challenge was traffic, which affected sales in all of our merchandise categories," said Target CEO Brian Cornell. 
Total in-store customer traffic, which fell 2.2% in the recent quarter, hasn’t been this low since the company’s data breach in the fall of 2013—yet another infamous corporate fail. Target’s same-store sales fell 1.1% in the second quarter, while Wal-Mart’s (WMT) comps rose 1.6%. 
What’s more, Target forecasts a continued drop in sales comps during the remainder of fiscal 2017 (January year-end). 
Did Wal-Mart’s sales surge because their low prices enticed customers away from Target, as widely reported this month, or did Wal-Mart’s sales increase because of Target’s bathroom policy? If you take 1.4 million people's consumer dollars away from Target, and direct most of those dollars toward their obvious rival, Wal-Mart, then yes, Wal-Mart is going to have an upside surprise in quarterly sales while Target’s numbers disappoint. 
But the news gets worse. 
Target execs had a long-term goal of 3% growth in comparable store sales, a goal that’s looking like a pipe dream. As the company makes downward revisions on its sales goals, that can only hurt the stock price further. 
In an attempt to woo those customers back, Target offered a 10% discount on everything in its stores and online on Sunday, August 28. The one-day sale event was called #TargetRunDay. Good luck with that. 
As a mom, and as a woman who has encountered armed criminals in public places, my family’s safety considerations rank higher than feel-good corporate policies. My mantra is, "First, do no harm." And anybody who knows me knows that I’m vigilant against people and organizations that aim to harm my fellow citizens. Bottom line: If a retailer makes a decision that increases danger to my family, I’m going to shop somewhere else. 
My recommendation is that shareholders sell TGT stock and reinvest their capital into stock of a company with strong earnings growth, low P/E, low debt levels and a bullish chart. I routinely feature such value and growth stocks in Cabot Undervalued Stocks Advisor. Join me for better stock investing ideas!

AI Predicts Trump Landslide – More Popular Than Obama in 2008

From CNBC:
An artificial intelligence (AI) system that correctly predicted the last three U.S. presidential elections puts Republican nominee Donald Trump ahead of Democrat rival Hillary Clinton in the race to the White House. 
MogIA was developed by Sanjiv Rai, the founder of Indian start-up It takes in 20 million data points from public platforms including Google, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube in the U.S. and then analyzes the information to create predictions. 
The AI system was created in 2004, so it has been getting smarter all the time. It had already correctly predicted the results of the Democrat and Republican Primaries. 
Data such as engagement with tweets or Facebook Live videos have been taken into account. 
The result is that Trump has overtaken the engagement numbers of Barack Obama’s peak in 2008 – the year he came into power – by 25 percent.
I also note that

Trump has halved Clinton's lead in the ABC Tracking Poll in the past two days. 

Man Fucks With "IRS" Tele-Phone-Scammer (Pakistani Muslim), Muslim , ASKS FOR TARGET GIFT CARD FOR IRS PAYMENT, Threatens Man With 9/11-Style Retribution

They ask for payment via a Target Gift Card. I'm pretty sure that means these "IRS" Phone Scammers have breached the Target computer systems, somehow.

Certainly, I can think of no way to take money off your Target Gift Card. I could imagine a way to hack Target and get into their Gift Card system and steal money. But I could not actually do it, because I am not a hacker.

Now, surely Target knows that IRS Phone Scammers are requesting payment via a Target Gift Card.

This means that, despite the fact that people are, indeed, getting scammed -having their money stolen -Target is not releasing the information to the public.

Target is not choosing to share this information to protect it's customers.

What do you call a company who knows it's customers are being scammed through the medium of their Gift Cards?

I call that a company that doesn't care about it's customers.

And while we're at it, has Target let the Police, FBI, and Interpol know of how these Pakistani scammers are using their Gift Cards as a medium of theft?

One can only wonder. Certainly the public has not been notified by the appropriate authorities.

What do you call it when a person knows about a crime being committed but refuses to report it to the Police?

You call that person an accomplice.

Does this mean

Muslim Fulani Herdsmen Slaughter Dozens of Christians in Nigerian Village

The Muslims Are Restless

From CNS:
Muslim Fulani herdsmen attacked villagers in the village of Godogodo, Nigeria on October 15 with guns and machetes, burning down homes, killing more than 40 people and injuring dozens more. It was the second attack on the predominantly Christian village in as many months. 
The Morning Star News’ field reporter in Nigeria, Obed Minchakpu, spoke with villagers who survived the brutal attack. He confirmed to that the attackers were Muslim Fulani herdsmen who have been targeting Christians for more than two years. 
Rev. Thomas Akut, pastor of the Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) Good News Church in Godogodo, told Morning Star News that he and his family barely escaped the massacre. 
Reverend Akut added that the attacks have left all 245 members of his congregation homeless, including himself and his family. 
“This is a jihad,” Akut said. “It is an Islamic holy war against Christians in the southern part of Kaduna state.” 
“They shot and killed my four children,” survivor Peter Atangi told WorldWatch Monitor. “As we ran for our dear lives, they also set our homes on fire. Many of us have been rendered homeless.” 
During a previous attack on Godogodo in September, eight men were killed and eight others were wounded by gunshot and machete cuts, village leaders said. 
According to World Watch , “a total of more than 300, mainly Christians, have been killed in repeated attacks by Fulani herdsmen in the past five months, while over 5,000 people have been displaced.” 
A total of 1,229 people lost their lives in 2014 due to violence by the Fulani herdsmen, which makes them the world’s fourth deadliest militant group in the world, after the Islamic State (ISIL), the Taliban, and Boko Haram, according to the 2015 Global Terrorist Index. 
The Index also ranked Nigeria third in the world for suffering “the highest impact of terrorism.”
Some may wonder, why does Pastorius post the same "joke" over and over? Why "The Muslims Are Restless" over and over?

Sure, MAYBE it was funny once or twice. But surely Pastorius can not believe it's still funny? Or really that it was ever funny.

After all, the phrase, "The Natives Are Restless", is an old racist trope from bad movies and TV shows.

Is Pastorius a racist? Does he want to resurrect the old days when such racist banter was the common fare of popular culture, when such casual hatred was an accepted form of humor and discourse across our culture?

No. I do not. I hate racism.

Islam is not a race.

I hate Islam.

Why do I hate Islam?

Because Islam is an ideology which promotes hatred, sometimes even racist hatred.

Islam is, first, an Arab Supremacist ideology. Second, Islam is an Islam Supremacist ideology.

If you are an Arab Muslim, you are a top tier Muslim. A non-Arab Muslim is a second-tier Muslim.

This is demonstrated by the realities of the Sudanese Genocide, in which the Arab Supremacist government of Sudan uses a Arab-centric Militia, called the "Janjaweed" (which means "evil on horseback"), to extend it's Arab Supremacist ideology:
The Sudanese government has unleashed African Arabs, called the Janjaweed, to wipe out tribal blacks. The name "Sudan," ironically, is Arabic, meaning "land of the blacks." But the Janjaweed is rewriting that history in blood. Janjaweed, by the way, has a translation, too. It means "evil on horseback." 
John Prendergast, who was director of African Affairs at the National Security Council for the Clinton White House, says that these tribal blacks have "been subjected to one of the most brutal campaigns of ethnic cleansing that Africa has ever seen." 
Prendergast is now with the International Crisis Group, a human rights organization documenting the disaster in Sudan and neighboring Chad. "A government-made hurricane hit Darfur ... using these Janjaweed militias," Prendergast says. 
"And the human debris has washed up on the shores of Chad." The refugees are from Sudan's western province, Darfur, which is about the size of Texas. Prendergast says the survivors lucky — many of them were chased across the desert border into Chad by the Janjaweed. 
"The Janjaweed are like a grotesque mixture of the mafia and the Ku Klux Klan," says Prendergast. 
"These guys have a racist ideology that sees the Arab population as the supreme population that would like to see the subjugation of non-Arab peoples. They're criminal racketeers that have been supported very directly by the government to wage the war against the people of Darfur."
Muslims will kill non-Muslims because the Koran tells them to slay the Infidels. But if Muslims have no Infidels to kill, they will set to killing each other; non-Arabs first.

Racism takes a back seat to Jihad.

Whether it is Racism or Jihad, however, it is animalistic, inhuman behavior, and it deserves to be ridiculed.

If that means resurrecting an old racist trope, then so be it. All the better to depict the truly evil nature of Muslims who kill non-Muslims for the flimsiest of reasons.

For instance, why did these herdsman kill these Christians? No reason is given. I'm sure there is a excuse. There always is. The Christians were probably creating mischief in the land.
Quran (5:33) - "The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement"
Whatever it was, however, some group of Muslims decided that some group of Christians needed to be killed, and they were able to find able support for taking that action in both the Koran and among their fellow Muslims.

That is not to say there are no Muslims who will oppose their actions. Sure there are. But there are not enough to put an end to such murder.

Islam has bloody borders, wherever it meets up with non-Muslims.

In 2010, there was a survey of all the ongoing campaigns of violence in the world. At that time, 21 our of the 22 involved Islam.

That's 95%.

That's Islam.

The Muslims Are Restless.
