The Daily Caller: “The Justice Department granted immunity to Hillary Clinton lawyer Cheryl Mills in order to gain access to a laptop computer that would have otherwise been tied up in litigation for years, FBI Director James Comey testified Tuesday.

“Having done this for many, many years, a grand jury subpoena for a lawyer’s laptop would likely entangled us in litigation over privilege for a very long time,” Comey told Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse during a Senate Homeland Security Committee hearing.

“And so by June of this year I wanted that laptop, our investigators wanted that laptop, and the best way to get it was through negotiation.”

Opinion: FBI Chief James Comey who was/is clear that no charges would be or should be filed against the former Secretary of State or her staff, and that there is absolutely nothing unusual about granting immunity in order to obtain evidence from innocent staffers who are somewhat reluctant to say anything but:

“On the advice of counsel, I invoke my Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination, and decline to answer.”

Since the list of people connected with the investigation has continued to grow, we would be remiss if we didn’t keep a list of the Clinton staffers who have received immunity from prosecution and refuse to talk anyway:

  • Bryan Pagliano: Former Clinton IT staffer who set up her server
  • Paul (bleach-bit) Combetta: Clinton computer technician who erased emails
  • Cheryl Mills: Former State Department Chief of Staff
  • Heather Samuelson: Clinton aide and lawyer
  • John Bentel: Former State Department’s information resources management office
  • Seamus, Tally and Maisie: Current Clinton canine pets

caution

Breitbart: “Leaked documents with sensitive FBI data exclusively obtained by Breitbart Texas reveal that 7,712 terrorist encounters occurred within the United States in one year and that many of those encounters occurred near the U.S.-Mexico border.

The incidents are characterized as “Known or Suspected Terrorist Encounters.”

Some of the encounters occurred near the U.S.-Mexico border at ports-of-entry and some occurred in between, indicating that persons known or reasonably suspected of being terrorists attempted to sneak into the U.S. across the border. In all, the encounters occurred in higher numbers in border states.”

Opinion: In the progressive left world of Obama/Clinton, that is reason enough to ramp-up immigration from Islamic nations.

debate

Breitbart: Trump v. Clinton

  • No Discussion of Clinton Foundation
  • No Discussion of Immigration
  • No Discussion of Private Server
  • Birther Issue Takes Center Stage

Zero Hedge: Debate Post-Mortem: Rematch Required As Commentators Split On Debate Winner, Markets give Hillary nod.

Drudge Report: Trump 81.72% – Clinton 18.28% (at 7 AM)

  • Lester Holt the Third Debater
  • Fact Checking Becomes Opinion Journalism
  • Clinton Trump Battle Fiercely over Taxes, Race, Terror

Politico: The first 20 minutes of the long-awaited showdown between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton appeared to be a draw. It was only later, when Clinton began a barrage of possible explanations for Trump’s failure to release his tax returns and then sat back as he squirmed his way through an explanation of his history of birtherism, that her victory became clear.

Times of Israel: Left out of debate Trump’s Muslim ban goes from profane to mundane.

Jobs, Islamic State, tax returns, hackers and even a Miss Universe contestant were discussed during the presidential face-off, but what may speak the most about this roller coaster of a campaign year may be what was left unsaid.

CNBC: Markets declare Hillary the winner.

Opinion: Stock markets around the world are reacting positively to a Hillary win because she would maintain the status quo. Wall Street hates indecision and loves Janet Yellen’s Fed who is keeping the wealth flowing.

Donald Trump became the Republican nominee for president because of the border wall that Mexico will pay for, a suspension on Muslim immigration, the worst economic recovery since World War II, the Clinton foundation wealth from Middle East governments, and a Democrat challenger who destroyed 30,000 emails from a private/illegal server and was caught in plethora of lies by Congress and the FBI.

None of that was discussed in detail last night:

  • Trump spoke in broad strokes similar to his campaign stops where there is no opponent
  • The moderator Lester Holt became a third debater on the side of Hillary
  • Clinton was rehearsed and ready
  • Trump was not

Advantage Clinton – God help us.

Trump meets Netanyahu

Arutz Sheva: “Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump told Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu that if elected president, he would recognize Jerusalem as the “undivided capital” of Israel, ending a long-standing US policy which has kept the American embassy in Tel Aviv.

The two met for over an hour in Trump’s private residence in Trump Tower in Manhattan on Sunday.

Among the topics of discussion were the Iran nuclear deal and the regional turmoil caused by the rise of the ISIS terror organization.”

Opinion: Great idea that would bring blessings to our nation, but there has been a long line of presidents from both parties who had promised they would move the embassy, including Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama.

There is also no shortage of presidential hopefuls who said the same: Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney and Ted Cruz, but Donald Trump added that if elected this November, he would recognize the entire city of Jerusalem as Israel’s undivided capital.

With Trump the idea of a two-state solution within Israel would end, and with it, the ridiculous notion that Edomites would ever make peace with Jacob.

Until technological advances, like fracking, made the US energy independent, the need for Arab oil outweighed any move of the US embassy. Mr. Trump recognizes that is no longer the case.

There are two wars prophesied for the last days before the return of Jesus Christ. A US embassy in Jerusalem just might start one of them.

(See Bible Prophecy 101, chapter 6 for Pre-Tribulation Wars and Conflicts)

payer

Investors Business Daily Op-Ed: “Health Care: For decades, liberal Democrats have been advocating a single-payer health care system where government pays all the bills. The public has never supported this idea, but it looks like the country is headed there anyway, slowly but surely.

The latest data from the Census Bureau show that just since President Obama took office, the number of Americans getting health care through a government program — Medicare, Medicaid, the VA, etc. — shot up by 32 million (an increase of more than 32%).

In contrast, the number of people getting coverage from private insurers has gone up 11.6 million (a gain of less than 6%).”

Opinion: Our post from October 28, 2013: “Once the gov.com website is long forgotten, and US citizens find themselves with either terrible healthcare or none at all, single-payer or Medicare for all will sound like a great solution. Death panels and all.”

We are almost there. Obamacare was designed to fail. Senator Obama is on record as being for single payer and said so in this 2008 video we may not get there immediately:
