    Speaking of, if anyone is interested, Pod Save America is doing an interview with Clinton, I think it will be posted up on Tuesday.

    So pretty bad fact check.
    Few and far between, for the most part the only one talking about Clinton was Trump.

    AL Franken got the same level of attention for his book that Hillary Clinton is getting for hers. He went on pretty much the same book tour, was interviewed by many of the same pundits and Journalists. The only difference is that Clinton Audiobooked hers and clips of that have been coming out, and also people are curious about what she has to say.

    This will probably only last a month or two, as most book tours do, then it's back to talking all about Trump again.

    It's possible to be liberal or progressive & dislike Hillary.

    The two reasons I didn't vote for her was her dishonesty & her health (ironically, two things that Trump also has), and I still stand by voting for Gary Johnson.

    At least I voted for a real candidate & not some dead gorilla.

    Her health?

    Also, Gary Johnson seemed like a nice enough guy with good intentions, but any time he was given the opportunity to speak about whatever issue, I just could not imagine that guy being president, at all. I mean, I'd rather him than Trump, but man. A lot of that was his seeming complete ignorance of anything regarding foreign matters. So maybe as a local politician I can get it.

    Congratulations, you have been successfully manipulated.

    This may shock you: Hillary Clinton is fundamentally honest

    I think think Gary Johnson's main selling point was that he wasn't Jill Stein.
    It was a weird election.

    The title should read: The case for Trump-Russia collusion: We’ve still got very, very little
    That article offers no new actual news and offers partisan hate for Trump. Empty opinion piece. Anne Applebaum seems to think she's running the investigation.

    Check all the independent fact checking sites.

    Hillary did better than both Trump and Sanders.

    So, yeah, I am pretty sure I am on the right side of this argument.


    Matter of fact, I feel good all over.

    Considering she was a stroke victim, I figured the stress could trigger another event.

    On this date in 2014, 2015, as well as 2016, "Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day" published profiles of former Arizona Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the man who has embodied a bigoted, corrupt, and aberrant image of "justice" for Maricopa County for decades. During his lengthy tenure, Arpaio has overseen a prolific amount of inmate deaths in Arizona’s prisons, looked the other way and not investigated hundreds of rapes and child molestation cases in the town of El Mirage, buddied up to xenophobic militia groups and illegal immigrant patrols (traveling down to the border and far outside his jurisdiction to do so) and has been investigated by the Department of Justice and been discovered to have pervasive racism throughout his department. The self-proclaimed “America’s Toughest Sheriff” prides himself on cruelty, bigotry, and ignorance, trying to overcome the $140 million in lawsuits (you read that right, $140 MILLION) that have been filed against him, including for letting actor Steven Seagal drive a SWAT tank into a residence on a reality TV show and killing the homeowners’ puppy, through publicity stunts to appease his more racist constituents, like an “investigation” into President Barack Obama’s birth certificate. His persona of being "tough on crime" is more important to him than actually serving and protecting the populace he his elected to, and he has vindictively battled against any political figure who has even dared to suggest that more oversight or transparency into his department is needed (he won't disclose what taxpayer dollars are actually spent on in the MCSO). Arpaio was found guilty of racial profiling after the Department of Justice investigation into his department, had deputies testify that he ordered them to defy the orders of federal judges and continue racist policies, and after being found guilty, was caught during the appeal process hiring private investigators to shadow the judge’s wife and try to find something he might be able to blackmail him with. He admitted doing this under oath but Sheriff Joe had the audacity to try and declare that now the judge was “biased” and should be taken off the case a month later. Shortly after Donald Trump made his announcement for president and said that Mexicans coming across the U.S. border were “criminals and rapists”, Joe Arpaio came to his defense, and said that criticism of Trump amounted to “violating his First Amendment rights”… which isn't how freedom of speech works, Sheriff, but hey, what can you expect from a man who once arrested the publishers of the Phoenix New Times for writing stories about corruption in his department that he didn’t like?

    Now, some people might have wondered why CSGOPOTD has focused on a county sheriff on a yearly basis. Well, let's put it this way... not only has Arpaio been a bane on civil rights, and embraced racial profiling as standard policy during his tenure... he's been hailed a conservative hero for it, primarily because his target is often non-whites. Is he influential in Arizona politics? Absolutely, every GOP candidate in the state seeks his endorsement to claim they're "Tough on immigration". And it's not just Arizona. This dithering xenophobic methuselah endorsed Donald Trump for president, and was granted a speaking slot at the 2016 Republican National Convention while it was still being considered whether or not Sheriff Arpaio would face criminal charges for contempt of court. His remarks were delivered only a day after a federal judge stripped Arpaio of having oversight over his own Internal Affairs Department.

    And nobody ever batted an eye about the fact that he's a county sheriff with an election war chest of $11.3 MILLION dollars. Stop and think about that... being an 85 year old openly racist, criminal, overtly fascist, taxpayer-paying lawsuit-magnet is not enough to have stopped Republicans from donating $11.3 million in money to his re-election. There was at least, good news since our last update on Arpaio. Democrats maanged to have retired Phoenix police officer Paul Penzone elected as County Sheriff, ending a quarter-century of racial bigotry from law enforcement in Arizona’s most populous county. The news would get even better…

    On July 31st, 2017, Joe Arpaio was found guilty upon appeal. He was scheduled to be sentenced on October 5th, 2017, and while his sentence could have carried up to a six month jail sentence, the most common belief was that he would get house arrest for his crimes, because… well, cops don’t do well in prison if they’re sent there. There’s no way an 85 year old man who spent decades tormenting his own constituents would manage to avoid harassment from fellow inmates, right?

    Well, long story short, Donald Trump is an ***hole. After a poorly-attended rally in Phoenix, Arizona, where roughly 4,000 people came to see him speak, and 10,000 protesters showed up… Donald Trump followed up his heinous response to Charlottesville that White Nationalists interpreted as his blessing by talking about a pardon for a man who ignored the Constitutional rights of minorities for 24 years. His rabid supporters applauded, and that was enough for Trump to give a pardon to Arpaio as Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas, because you have to prioritize helping out fellow racist fascists over saving people from flooding the likes of which the nation has never seen. And he did it before Arpaio was EVER SENTENCED.

    Now, Donald Trump hates… HATES Arizona’s U.S. Senators. Not just John McCain, but in particular, Jeff Flake, who he promised in 2016 he would sponsor a primary challenger against. Most thought Trump was going to back former Arizona State Senator Kelli Ward, a former CSGOPOTD who once hosted a town hall on Chemtrails and pals around with people who talk about black helicopters doing all sorts of government conspiracies to the good people… but now, Joe Arpaio has intimated he might run for U.S. Senate against Flake. On the date of the GOP Primary in 2018, he’ll be 86 years old, and still REALLY racist. All we know is, we can only hope all of the candidates in that GOP Primary tear each other to pieces, and leave one of Arizona’s Senate seats able to be flipped blue for the first time since 1994… only two years after Joe Arpaio got elected sheriff.

    Wow ... there's more meat in that piece than all the Hillary slam pieces put together.

    Gotta love the shade:
    During an appearance on CBS’s “Late Show With Stephen Colbert,” Sanders dismissed that criticism of lasting damage:
    “Look, Secretary Clinton ran against the most unpopular candidate in the history of this country, and she lost and she was upset about it and I understand that,” Sanders said. “But our job is really not to go backwards. It is to go forwards.”
