Former secretary of state Henry Kissinger jeopardized US efforts to stop mass killings by Argentina’s 1976-83 military dictatorship by congratulating the country’s military leaders for “wiping out” terrorism, according to a large trove of newly declassified state department files.
TIME: It’s been a difficult stretch for your campaign over the last two weeks. What’s going on in the polls?
Trump: Well, I think we’re doing well. We have tremendous crowds. We have the same level of enthusiasm that we’ve had, if not more. Some of the polls are down a little bit. We have some polls that are not down very much. But I think we’re moving along. I think we’re doing fine.
A reminder how Hillary gets smeared time and again:
So for example, I'm the only candidate which has a policy about how to bring economic opportunity using clean renewable energy as the key into coal country. Because we're going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business, right?
And we're going to make it clear that we don't want to forget those people. Those people labored in those mines for generations, losing their health, often losing their lives to turn on our lights and power our factories.
Now we've got to move away from coal and all the other fossil fuels, but I don't want to move away from the people who did the best they could to produce the energy that we relied on.
So rather than the media and opposition claiming Hillary's bragging about shutting down coal miners, she's actually talking about supporting these people during the difficult transition.
But that's not what the papers will say, and the conversation about losing West Virginia ignores this and the big inroads she made into Appalachia in 2008 (when she was accused of being racist for focusing on whites).
We'll see whether she regains control of the message.
Cheryl Lankford, the widow of a veteran who died in combat, used death benefits to apply to Trump University. She lost 35K in the scam. A court has ruled that lawsuits filed against Trump University. Cheryl spoke on the first day of the DNC. She pleads that the country not let Trump do the the country what he did to her. Donald Trump is a con artist.
With its own version of a powerful troika of cross-state networks combining policy research, legislative orchestration, and public advocacy across dozens of states, the American left would become much more able to elect and support progressive politicians at all levels of government. As the US right well understands, that sort of combined clout across the states is what it takes to move the needle in American politics and public policy. As liberals continue to relearn through hard experience, capturing the presidency and operating in Washington, DC — is simply not enough.

Bernie's 'Our Revolution' is supposed to be a 504c organization to help elect progressives, but key staff quit as they are mad at Bernie, don't like the Director, are afraid of getting money from billionaires, Bernie is doing it all wrong..etc etc. "The group’s entire organizing department quit this week, along with people working in digital and data positions." The Revolution sputtering out before the current election? What about the midterms? Hello?
“Terrorism is a real threat,” Biden said, “but it’s not an existential threat to the existence of the democratic country of the United States of America. Terrorism can cause real problems. It can undermine confidence. It can kill relatively large numbers of people. But terrorism is not an existential threat.” If Biden were running for the presidency, this piece of the Biden Doctrine—what he calls “proportionality”—would no doubt be red meat for many who place terrorism at the heart of America’s challenges today.
