How To Explain Hillary Clinton’s Fundraiser With Failed Theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes

"So, that happened. Elizabeth Holmes is the young, fresh-faced CEO of Theranos, a medical device startup that promised to revolutionize the science of blood testing with cutting-edge technology. But there’s a problem. Last October, the Wall Street Journal reported that Theranos wasn’t delivering anything close to what it promised. In the months since, the company has become synonymous with corporate excess — serial violators of lab standards and federal regulations that posed “immediate jeopardy to patient health and safety.”

So, why is Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton having a fundraiser with Holmes next week? The choice seems inexplicable — unless you’ve read Thomas Frank’s new book, Listen Liberal: or Whatever Happened To The Party of the People. Frank joined the “So That Happened” podcast to discuss his new tome."


New pro-Hillary Clinton ad bites back at Donald Trump’s video that showed her ‘barking'

Could be better but not bad.


Here's why you shouldn't trust the media frenzy around Clinton's big wins

An interesting read that breaks down a lot of info



"IF THERE WAS anything surprising about Hillary Clinton’s defense of capital punishment when questioned by an Ohio death row exoneree Sunday night, it was only that she was not better prepared to deliver it. This was no gotcha question, no unscripted ambush like the one carried out last month by Black Lives Matter protesters who confronted Clinton at a fundraiser with her ’90s-era rhetoric about “superpredators.” Although the CNN-sponsored Democratic town hall dictated that candidates do not receive questions in advance, the Clinton campaign almost certainly knew that Ricky Jackson, who spent an incomprehensible 39 years in prison as an innocent man, would be in the audience — and that if called upon, he would probably ask Clinton to justify her support for a policy that sent him to die for a crime he did not commit.

Yet, face to face with an emotional Jackson, who had to pause to regain his composure as he described how he came “perilously close” to execution, Clinton could only repeat a line that Jackson himself later described as “canned.”"

This is a very progressive position for Hillary to take lol!


Iowa Police Frustrated With Clinton Over Bills

"Police in Iowa say that they are becoming increasingly frustrated with Democratic presidential hopeful Hilary Clinton's campaign over unpaid bills.

The Des Moines Police Department is still be waiting to reimburshed for the services they provided during a Katy Perry concert in October and the Marshalltown Police Department is dealing with a similar issue, according to WHO-TV.

Former President Bill Clinton was in Marshalltown on Jan. 15, and he requested and received security assistance from the department, while Hillary Clinton held a much larger campaign event in Marshalltown a few weeks later on Jan. 26.

"We have requested reimbursement from the Clinton campaign. We haven't received that payment yet," Marshalltown Police Chief Michael Tupper told the news station.

After not receiving any response from the campaign after several tries, Tupper sent a bill for both events on March 11 for expenses totaling just under $2,700."

They can't even get a return phone call from the Clinton campaign lol! I guess they don't need there help anymore.

Scans of King Tut's Tomb Reveal Hidden Rooms, Egypt's Antiquities Ministry Says

Source: NBC news

CAIRO — Radar scans of King Tut's tomb have revealed two spaces on the north and east chambers of the pharaonic mausoleum that could contain the "discovery of the century," Egypt's antiquities ministry said Thursday.

Antiquities Minister Mamdouh al-Damaty told a press conference that metal and organic masses were revealed by the scans, signaling that the rooms could possibly contain funerary objects.

"It could be the discovery of the century. It's very important for Egyptian history and the history of the world," he said, adding that the chambers may well have belonged to a king or queen. Further tests will be done on March 31 to discover more about the newly-discovered spaces, he added

One prominent Egyptologist has theorized that Queen Nefertiti, whose regal beauty was immortalized in a bust on display in a Berlin museum, could be buried in the walls of Tut's 3,300-year-old pharaonic mausoleum.

I've always been fascinated with ancient Africa and this story has the potential to be groundbreaking.


Clinton to attend fundraiser hosted by exploiter of prison labor

"As part of an eight-day blitz of fundraisers, Clinton will attend an event hosted by Lyndon Rive, the CEO of SolarCity. SolarCity, which makes and installs solar energy panels, portrays itself as a progressive, “green” business, but the reality is quite different.

In 2012, SolarCity made a deal with the University of Oregon to build two large solar energy installations. As part of the deal, the company received a nearly 12 million dollar subsidy in the form of tax credits from the Oregon Department of Energy.

After taking the public money, SolarCity had the job subcontracted to prison labor. Prisoners were paid less than a dollar an hour – effectively slavery. Normal pay for workers who are not imprisoned range from $27-$70 an hour.


Super Delegates.... To the Rescue

I seen this a bit ago and with all the talk of superdelegates lately I'd thought this would be fun.

Personally I'm against the idea that someone should get more than one vote. That said, I realized a while ago that neither Bernie or Hillary have a chance to reach the magic number with out them so it was smart for Bernie not to demonize the process.

I dig the sly love they give Carter
