Donald Trump appears to have donated $100,000 to the Clinton Foundation - Business Insider
The Clinton Foundation's website shows "Donald J. Trump" under a list of individuals and organizations that donated between $100,000 and $250,000 to the foundation.

The foundation recently came under fire after Trump accused his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, of running a "pay-to-play scheme" during her time as secretary of state that allegedly awarded donors with special treatment.

Despite Hillary Clinton going on the record and denouncing any accusations of misconduct, Trump has called for an independent investigation into the matter in addition to demanding that the foundation be shut down entirely.

The Data That Turned the World Upside Down - Motherboard
Pretty much every message that Trump put out was data-driven," Alexander Nix remembers. On the day of the third presidential debate between Trump and Clinton, Trump's team tested 175,000 different ad variations for his arguments, in order to find the right versions above all via Facebook. The messages differed for the most part only in microscopic details, in order to target the recipients in the optimal psychological way: different headings, colors, captions, with a photo or video. This fine-tuning reaches all the way down to the smallest groups, Nix explained in an interview with us. "We can address villages or apartment blocks in a targeted way. Even individuals."

In the Miami district of Little Haiti, for instance, Trump's campaign provided inhabitants with news about the failure of the Clinton Foundation following the earthquake in Haiti, in order to keep them from voting for Hillary Clinton. This was one of the goals: to keep potential Clinton voters (which include wavering left-wingers, African-Americans, and young women) away from the ballot box, to "suppress" their vote, as one senior campaign official told Bloomberg in the weeks before the election. These "dark posts"—sponsored news-feed-style ads in Facebook timelines that can only be seen by users with specific profiles—included videos aimed at African-Americans in which Hillary Clinton refers to black men as predators, for example.

Nix finishes his lecture at the Concordia Summit by stating that traditional blanket advertising is dead

Here Is Juanita Broaddrick's Affidavit That Destroys Trump's Attack On Hillary Clinton
Trump’s media (Breitbart) reports angrily on how this woman was raped and abused by the Clintons, as if Breitbart hasn’t been justifying and enabling abuse of women — including their own reporter who was assaulted by Trump’s then campaign manager. Donald Trump even retweeted an unverified Twitter account claiming to be Broaddrick Saturday night.

Except she denied these accusations under oath, when she could be held accountable for her claims. It’s also not relevant because again, Bill Clinton isn’t running for president. If accusations are gospel to Trump et al, then the many women who are currently accusing Donald Trump of rape and/or sexual assault and/or rape of a minor would be treated very differently by Republicans and Breitbart.

The Clinton BS Files: Who is Chelsea Clinton’s real dad? A mystery spun out of nothing -
This Hillary-Clinton-is-the-real-sexist gambit comes from the twisted brain of right-wing ratfucker and close Trump friend Roger Stone, who published a book called “The Clintons’ War on Women” last year.

VIDEOClinton has worked through previous health episodes, Bill Clinton says

The book is a wonderland of bullshit about the Clintons, including conspiracy theories about Waco and about Hillary Clinton’s relationship to Huma Abedin. But there’s also a lengthy digression into the topic of this week’s Clinton BS File — who the “real” father of Chelsea Clinton is.

The obvious answer, to normal people, is “Bill Clinton.” He is her legal father and the husband of her mother and, if you have eyeballs in your skull, you can see that Chelsea looks quite a bit like her father.

Fox News Shocks America & Admits Benghazi Investigation Was Complete Hoax (DETAILS) By Kinsley Ryan - July 3, 2016
Upon receiving the latest Benghazi reports, Fox host Shepard Smith announced,

‘The House committee investigating the deadly terror attack in Benghazi today released its report. After a two-year, $7 million investigation the eighth investigation to date, the authors of the report make no new accusations and provide no new evidence of wrongdoing against the former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.’

Two years and $7 Million later, there is still no evidence to back up accusations of Hillary Clinton’s wrong-doings in the Benghazi attacks. This investigation comes after a series of  other investigations that also found no evidence that Hillary Clinton could have stopped or made the attacks less fatal.

Smith continues with a quote from the investigation report,

‘Despite President Obama and Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta’s clear orders to deploy military assets, nothing was sent to Benghazi and nothing was en route to Libya at the time the last two Americans were killed almost eight hours after the attack began,’

He concludes with,

‘ They say the military could not have done anything differently to save the lives of the four Americans killed in the attack.’

This clip is all you need to know about the so-called "marked" emails sent to Hillary Clinton.

Francesca Vivanti If they have charged Hillary, they would have had to charge Condoleezza Rice and Colin Powell - both prior Secretaries of State whom stated that, in error, during their terms they had sent sensitive material using their own private e-mail line rather than the secured Statement Department's line. Are the GOP pushing for inquiries about Condi and Colin's e-mails? No? Didn't think so.

Laine Thorhalla Gulack If Hillary Clinton broke the law, as some Republicans are claiming, then Colin Powell also broke the law.

Gary La Forest Within the scope of governmental agencies and private corporations' hacks numbered in the millions of illegal download, three questionable download, which we found out today, were not illegal according to State, there can be no other conclusion we can arrive at: this emergency hearing -- this is a Republican woman-hating, Salem-style, witch-hunt by a congressional committee. Hooray for the Dems on that committee!

FBI findings tear holes in Hillary Clinton's email defense | PolitiFact (update says politifact was wrong)
Comey testified before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on July 7. Comey said he believes three emails on Clinton's server contained information labeled classified at the time they were sent. This information was not properly marked in that the emails did not have a classification header, even though a "(c)" immediately preceded text in the body of the emails, designating confidential information. Without the clear classification header, it's reasonable to infer that Clinton did not realize these three emails contained classified information, he said.

A Brief History of Taylor Swift’s ‘Special Place in Hell’ Quote -- The Cut
Vanity Fair asked how she felt about Tina Fey and Amy Poehler joking about her love life. She credited it to Katie Couric, who told Swift "she had heard a quote that she loved, that said, 'there's a special place in hell for women who don't help other women.'" That quote is generally attributed to Madeleine Albright, who repeats it often during discussions on female leadership and workplace dynamics. When she said it during a Wellesley panel in 2004, the room broke into cheers. (An alumni organization now sells T-shirts with the quote.) She said it at a WNBA luncheon in 2006. She said it to Time magazine in 2008, the same year that the quote appeared on Starbucks cups, drawing attention from none other than Sarah Palin: 

Palin had recounted a "providential" moment she experienced on Saturday: "I'm reading on my Starbucks mocha cup, okay? The quote of the day... It was Madeleine Albright, former Secretary of State [crowd boos] and UN ambassador. ... Now she said it, I didn't. She said, 'There's a place in Hell reserved for women who don't support other women.'"

The debate over “Bernie Bros” isn’t about Bernie Sanders at all - Vox
A number of leftist (male) writers, pundits, and rank-and-file Sanders fans have thrown themselves wholeheartedly into changing the zero minds who believe that Sanders shouldn’t get to be president because they read on the internet that his supporters are an all-male strike force of online misogyny.

Back in October, Matt Bruenig took the nascent Bernie Bro gender critique seriously, rolling out a series of charts in Jacobin to prove that the real divide among Democratic primary voters is about age, not gender. He has stayed on the case ever since. Freddie deBoer, writing on his personal blog, assured Sanders supporters that they shouldn't worry that "a few dozen people on Twitter" could really be a problem for the candidacy of a Jewish socialist from Vermont. And now, of course, there is Greenwald warning of the false-flag operation by Clintonista journalists.

I am here to tell them that they can stand down: There’s no need to defend Sanders’s campaign against such charges or to attack Clinton's for secretly fomenting them. This isn't going to hurt Sanders, because that was never what this was about in the first place.

The kerfuffle over harassment by Sanders supporters isn’t about Bernie. Nor is it about who gets to be president or whose supporters are better. Rather, it’s about the way the Democratic primary — from TV media coverage to online debates that are only tangentially related — is just one more thing that tells American women the depressing truth about what’s it’s like to be a woman trying to do things in America today.

Shakesville: "Inappropriate" Doesn't Begin to Cover It
Instead, all Sanders could muster was: "Every campaign has statements come out which are inappropriate. That was inappropriate. Clearly, I have a lot of respect for Secretary Clinton."

Actually, Senator, that's not very clear at all. Especially when you refuse to name what's happening here as misogyny, substituting instead a lesser, vague categorization of the comments as "inappropriate."

Yes, those comments were inappropriate. But the reason they were inappropriate is because they were sexist.

Jeff Weaver, Sanders' campaign manager and the man who made the shitty comments, wouldn't even acknowledge they were inappropriate. Instead, he offered: "It certainly, I think, could be interpreted as edgy or snarky but nothing more."

Edgy? Really? He went there. The tired defense of the most odious comics, trading in ancient stereotypes and calling it cutting edge humor.

And he didn't stop there. He then victim-blamed Clinton, laying the responsibility for his own misogyny at her feet, and at the feet of feminists who defend her against misogynistic attacks:

New James O’Keefe video sting catches Clinton campaign being kind to a Canadian - The Washington Post
Conservative undercover journalist James O'Keefe has released the second in an ongoing series of videos inside Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign. The latest from Project Veritas Action accuses the Democratic frontrunner's director of marketing and FEC compliance director of breaking the law, and allowing a Canadian tourist to launder money for campaign swag.

There are just two catches. One: No one's ever thrown the book at an American for purchasing merchandise from a campaign, then giving it to a foreigner as a gift. Two: The person who takes the Canadian's money and gives it to the Clinton campaign is the Project Veritas Action journalist. The Clinton campaign, which has leaked evidence of other PVA stings to journalists, is gleefully brushing this one off.

The video, which will be unveiled by O'Keefe at a press conference today, reports on what happened when an undercover PVA reporter went to the merchandise line at Hillary Clinton's campaign launch. According to O'Keefe, the reporter simply happened to be near a woman from Montreal who encountered a problem when trying to buy some trinkets.

Martin O'Malley's Presidential Strategy: Try, Try, Try Again - BuzzFeed News
At first, O’Malley tapped his knee along with the chant. But the protesters continued on, bringing the event to a stand-still. O’Malley leaned back and sighed. Vargas didn’t know what to do. When one of the activists mounted the stage, he handed her the microphone.
O’Malley stood off to the side, waiting.
Cullors, the Black Lives Matter co-founder, joined her colleague on stage. “We don’t like shutting shit down.” But we have to, she told the crowd. “We are in a stage of emergency.”
Given the chance to respond, O’Malley fumbled.
When he promised to roll out a “criminal justice reform package,” an activist shouted back, “Don’t generalize that shit.” And when he mentioned his push as governor of Maryland to repeal the state death penalty — telling the protesters that “black lives matter, white lives matter, all lives matter” — the group boomed back in anger. “We already know white lives matter,” one man yelled. “We don’t want to hear that shit!”
Then Vargas cut the event off. “Oh, man,” O’Malley said. “We just started.” He walked off, quietly chanting along with the crowd. “Black. Lives. Matter… Black. Lives. Matter.”
