Hillary Clinton Suffers Coughing Spell

Hillary Clinton Suffers Coughing Spell in Howard Stern Interview

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton coughs during a Labor Day rally September 5, 2016 in Cleveland, Ohio. Hillary Clinton launched the home stretch of her US presidential bid aiming to solidify her advantages over rival Donald Trump, with both candidates converging on working-class Ohio as ground zero of their 2016 …

Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton suffered a lengthy coughing spell Wednesday in an interview with Sirius/XM radio talk show host Howard Stern.
After discussing the 2020 campaign race, and the difficulties of social media, Clinton started coughing as Stern continued speaking.
As she continued coughing, Stern paused and said, “I feel like I need to give you a cough drop or something … you OK?”
“I got one,” Clinton croaked.
Stern recalled her coughing was also the subject of speculation during the campaign, leading people to speculate about her health.
“I was dying,” Clinton said in a sarcastic raspy voice as she kept coughing, joking, “I thought I would come on and cough some more.”
The coughing spell lasted about three minutes, as she continued.
At another point in the interview, Clinton struggled again with a coughing fit.
“You want some water?” Stern asked.
“I got some water, yeah,” she replied.

War on men?

Aldermen who voted with Mayor Rahm Emanuel got support from a super PAC created to re-elect Emanuel and boost his City Council majority. Now, Lightfoot is following suit — and will have plenty of money to throw around.

Former Chicago alderman running for top county prosecutor, why?
A former Chicago alderman who twice ran unsuccessfully for mayor of Chicago and then president of the Cook County Board has joined the ranks of candidates running against Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx.

CHICAGO - A former Chicago alderman who twice ran unsuccessfully for mayor of Chicago has joined the ranks of candidates running against Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Bob Fioretti formally announced on Monday his bid to unseat the top prosecutor in the county that includes Chicago. He joins a field that includes two former prosecutors and a former county judge.

Foxx and her office have been criticized for how the investigation of former “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett’s report that he was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack was handled. After her communication with a relative of Smollett prompted Foxx to recuse herself from the case, the actor was charged with staging the attack before Foxx’s office abruptly dropped the charges. Now, a special prosecutor is investigating the decision to drop the charges

Election Fraud on a National Scale?
win through any means necessary 


Dallas patriots Kevin Freeman, host of the Economic War Room on BlazeTV and Russ Ramsland, a voter fraud and election expert, have released detailed findings from a cyber/forensic investigation into election fraud utilizing compromised voting machines in 2018 (and quite probably, in the governor’s race in 2019 in Kentucky).

In summary terms, Freeman’s “Episode #70” reveals that (1) security protections in voting machines were disabled, (2) penetration and manipulation of actual vote tabulations was and is possible, and (3) evidence already exists that votes were surreptitiously, electronically manipulated to change election results.

This is the 21st century version of Stalin’s ruthless observation, “it’s not the people who vote that count, it’s the people who count the votes.” Only today’s Stalins can do it all by online penetration of unsecure ‘voting machines’ to count and alter votes, and leave almost no IT fingerprints.

Elites’ contempt for America’s white middle class

In early March 2016, three months before the last Republican Party primary elections that sealed Trump’s ascendancy as the party’s presidential nominee, Politico Magazine contributing editor Michael Lind called Trump “the Perfect Populist”—”one with broader appeal to the right and the center than his predecessors in recent American political history—so much so it could put him in the White House”.
Lind was unusual among pundits in predicting Trump’s electoral victory, as according to polling data he did not have even an outside chance of winning. What catapulted Trump to the White House, to the enduring shock and disbelief of the Democratic Party, was his message of what Victor Davis Hanson in his book The Case for Trump identified as “middle-class populism”—a populism of “less government, doubt over overseas military commitments, fears of redistribution and globalization, and distrust of cultural elites.” Their distrust, Hanson maintains, fundamentally was a reaction, not a catalyst, to the elites’ contempt for the white middle class:
[S]corn for the white middle class . . . was widespread among many elites, and it ignited a

Ex-Clinton strategist: Don't rule out Hillary run, amidst news of Bloomberg's entrance

By Nick Givas | Fox News


Former Hillary Clinton 2008 presidential campaign chief strategist Mark Penn says that Joe Biden is a weak front-runner candidate.

There is still time for Hillary Clinton and Michael Bloomberg to enter the 2020 presidentialrace, as a field of weak candidates continues to fuel speculation of a dark horse savior, said former Clinton strategist Mark Penn on Sunday.

"There’s still a couple of days here," he said on "Sunday Morning Futures." I don’t know whether [Clinton will] look at the Michael Bloomberg thing and say, 'the field's too crowded now. I missed my opportunity,' or the opposite.


"'Wow the field's weak, I could come in. I could get 165,000 donors, I’m tied with [Joe] Biden in some

Pritzker bars state officials from City Club events after federal raid

While he waits to see if he is going to be indicted for real estate tax fraud, the governor wants to make sure nobody else gets into legal hot-water.

Gov. J.B. Pritzker wants his agency heads to avoid the civic group that drew scrutiny from federal investigators earlier this year as part of a sweeping government corruption probe.
