Wikileaks expected to release another blast against Hillary this last week of the campaign.
Update on Comey.
Yes, that would be the Republican establishment, actually.
I hope Wolffe is right and Comey has not successfully rigged the election for The Duce.
But I truly fear he is wrong.
The Trump campaign has been saying for weeks there would be an October surprise.
Was it Comey's email letter?
Did they plot that with him?
He violated a longstanding practice of no public announcements about politically sensitive investigations within 60 days of an election.
He ignored objections to going public from the AG and Assistant AG.
None of the emails were on Hillary's server, none were to or from her.
Now this is how you rig, fix, or steal an election, right out in plain sight.
The race baiting, lying outrage that there is no black racism because hostility toward those of another race is racism only if felt by the powerful toward the weak - because only then is it seriously dangerous - is very annoying, I agree.
But the underlying fact remains.
Donald Trump, nearly openly running as a white "race man," poses a credible threat to American minorities that Barack Obama, with all his own racial baggage, never posed or meant to pose to America's white majority.
As a human being and as fit for the presidency, he has been and remains so very strikingly Trump's superior.
And is now doing more.
This is not a political movement but a personality cult.
It's worth considering that he is more harmful to the stability, integrity, and national power of America than George Wallace ever was.
The Republican Party has been worshipping crackpots, off and on, for at least half a century.
Goldwater was, well, Goldwater.
Reagan said Medicare was Communism and its passage would cause the destruction of America.
More and more people are beginning to realize the Republican Party is for crackpots, racists, and ideological boobs who want to smash what America actually is, what America has become, the actually existing America, for some deluded and stupid idealization of what was actually an awful past.
The real defenders, protectors, and strengtheners of the real America - the real conservatives - are the Democrats.
This guy seems to be serious.
And what do you know?
Another conservative - this one a libertarian plutocrat, quelle surprise - who thinks the massive and unshakable rejection of his politics by the voters proves there's something wrong with democracy.
The report of the Warren Commission on the assassination of President Kennedy.
Or the story that Bill Clinton drove to an airport to meet with the AG on her jet for nearly an hour and in private, just before the Department of Justice was to decide whether to prosecute Hillary, in order to chat about their grandchildren.
Since conservatives want to repeal a century of progressivism and Democrats want to defend and expand its achievements, I have all along thought Hillary the less dangerous toward, or more favorable toward, Social Security and Medicare for retirees, compared to The Duce.
But that could be wrong.
In order to shore up Obamacare and open up Medicare for all, and to count time as an unemployed care-giver as time worked for purposes of calculating Social Security benefits though such care-givers pay nothing to support the Social Security fund during all those years, she might well tolerate reductions in SS benefits or increased costs associated with Medicare for some or all retirees.
Means testing, for example.
And that's perhaps only the tip of the iceberg.
And The Duce, not fully aligned with the reactionary, anti-progressive agenda of the misnamed American conservative movement, has promised - though maybe not much lately and never very credibly - to retain and strengthen Social Security and Medicare for at least people already retired, though that does not at all suit the druthers of Republican office-holders from DC to East Podunk, or of the ideologists of the party and American conservatism.
