When George Soros’s Open Society Foundations (OSF) was accused last year of funding Black Lives Matter (BLM), Ken Zimmerman, the director of U.S. programs at OSF, flatly denied it and claimed it was a fantastic rumor. “I can’t really speculate on what leads to rumors, but it is wrong,” he said, “I don’t even know where one begins to reconstruct something like that.” Early this week, hackers published documents that show that two months before Zimmerman’s denial, the OSF board approved $650,000 to BLM.
Donald Trump announced the addition of Stephen Bannon to his campaign and the promotion of Kellyanne Conway to a new position on his staff, explaining, “I want to win. That’s why I’m bringing on fantastic people who know how to win and love to win.”
The Hillary Clinton campaign is launching a program to recruit so-called “DREAMers” (illegal alien youth who were granted amnesty) into a voter-registration army.
Trump told a Newsmax TV host, “We want a moderator that’s going to be fair. If we have a fair moderator, then it’s going to be wonderful.” Trump’s caution concerning just who will be the debate moderator appears to be warranted, as it is clear that the mainstream media dislikes Trump.

Echoing past statements on the subject, Republican Party presidential candidate Donald Trump called President Obama and Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton the “founders” of the Islamic State, or ISIS, in Thursday speeches. The Obama administration and the Clinton camp immediately fired back. But while “co-founders” might have been a better term — they did not act alone and had many allies — official documents, top administration officials including Vice President Joe Biden, and vast amounts of evidence show that the Obama administration and Obama's misnamed “anti-ISIS” coalition were actually responsible for arming, training, and funding ISIS.
What started as news articles reporting potential danger to American elections from Russian hackers has quickly morphed into a call for a federal agency to protect our elections from those alleged Russian hackers. But many of the threats cited have nothing to do with the Internet, and giving blanket protective authority to a federal agency would grant broad powers far in excess of what the U.S. Constitution allows.
Even more neocons, globalists, and warmongers representing the establishment wing of the Republican Party attacked GOP presidential contender Donald Trump in an open letter this week, suggesting he would be “dangerous.” But Trump quickly turned the tables, thanking the neocon bureaucrats for exposing themselves publicly, and blaming them for turning America and the world into the dangerous mess that they have become.
Liberal Republican Senator Susan Collins of Maine wrote an op-ed piece for the Washington Post explaining why she will not support Donald Trump for president.
In this particularly strange election year could new gun owners, especially women and minorities, make a difference in November?
