    Assange: WikiLeaks did not receive Clinton emails from Russian government | RT News

    Quote:

    In a John Pilger Special, to be exclusively broadcast by RT on Saturday courtesy of Dartmouth Films, whistleblower Julian Assange categorically denied that the troves of US Democratic Party and Clinton work and staff emails released this year have come from the Russian government.

    “The Clinton camp has been able to project a neo-McCarthyist hysteria that Russia is responsible for everything. Hillary Clinton has stated multiple times, falsely, that 17 US intelligence agencies had assessed that Russia was the source of our publications. That’s false – we can say that the Russian government is not the source,” Assange told the veteran Australian broadcaster as part of a 25-minute John Pilger Special, courtesy of Dartmouth Films.

    Assange: Clinton & ISIS funded by same money, Trump won’t be allowed to win | RT News

    Quote:

    In the second excerpt from the John Pilger Special, to be exclusively broadcast by RT on Saturday, courtesy of Dartmouth Films, Julian Assange accuses Hillary Clinton of misleading Americans about the true scope of Islamic State’s support from Washington’s Middle East allies.

    In a 2014 email made public by Assange’s WikiLeaks last month, Hillary Clinton, who had served as secretary of state until the year before, urges John Podesta, then an advisor to Barack Obama, to “bring pressure” on Qatar and Saudi Arabia, “which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL [Islamic State, IS, ISIS] and other radical Sunni groups.”

    “I think this is the most significant email in the whole collection,” Assange, whose whistleblowing site released three tranches of Clinton-related emails over the past year, told Pilger.

    “All serious analysts know, and even the US government has agreed, that some Saudi figures have been supporting ISIS and funding ISIS, but the dodge has always been that it is some “rogue” princes using their oil money to do whatever they like, but actually the government disapproves. But that email says that it is the government of Saudi Arabia, and the government of Qatar that have been funding ISIS.”

    Assange and Pilger, who sat down for their 25-minute interview at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, where the whistleblower has been a refugee since 2012, then talk about the conflict of interest between Clinton’s official post, which held throughout Obama’s first term, her husband’s nonprofit, and the Middle East officials, whose stated desire to fight terrorism may not have been sincere.

    John Pilger: The Saudis, the Qataris, the Moroccans, the Bahrainis, particularly the first two, are giving all this money to the Clinton Foundation, while Hillary Clinton is secretary of state, and the State Department is approving massive arms sales, particularly Saudi Arabia.

    Julian Assange: Under Hillary Clinton – and the Clinton emails reveal a significant discussion of it – the biggest-ever arms deal in the world was made with Saudi Arabia: more than $80 billion. During her tenure, the total arms exports from the US doubled in dollar value.

    JP: Of course, the consequence of that is that this notorious jihadist group, called ISIL or ISIS, is created largely with money from people who are giving money to the Clinton Foundation?

    JA: Yes.

    Pilger also questioned Assange over increasingly frequent accusations from the Clinton camp, and Western media, that WikiLeaks is looking to swing next week’s US presidential election in favor of Donald Trump – perhaps at Russia’s behest.

    But Assange dismissed the prospect of Trump, who is behind in the polls, winning as unlikely – and not necessarily due to his standing with the electorate.

    “My analysis is that Trump would not be permitted to win. Why do I say that? Because he has had every establishment off his side. Trump does not have one establishment, maybe with the exception of the Evangelicals, if you can call them an establishment,” said Assange. “Banks, intelligence, arms companies, foreign money, etc. are all united behind Hillary Clinton. And the media as well. Media owners, and the journalists themselves.”

    Donald Trump's Las Vegas Hotel Is Breaking The Law | Huffington Post

    Five days ahead of the election, federal officials had to order the Trump International Hotel to start bargaining with its workers’ union.

    Quote:

    Donald Trump may fashion himself the world’s toughest negotiator, but federal officials are having to drag him to the bargaining table to face off with some housekeepers.

    After months of stonewalling from Trump and his partners, the National Labor Relations Board ruled Thursday that Trump’s Las Vegas hotel was breaking the law by refusing to recognize its workers’ labor union. The board ordered Trump to cease and desist and start bargaining toward a contract.

    Workers at the Trump International on the Vegas strip voted in favor of unionizing with the Culinary Workers Union last year, by a count of 238 to 209. Trump’s team claimed that the union unfairly influenced the results, but officials found no merit in those allegations and certified the election results.

    The hotel has nonetheless refused to acknowledge the union. Now the labor board has to force it to.

    Many of the workers at the hotel are Latino and Filipino immigrants working in housekeeping and food service jobs. According to the Culinary Workers Union, the Trump workers on average earn roughly $3 less per hour than other unionized workers on the strip.

    In a statement Thursday, Geoconda Arguello-Kline, the union’s secretary treasurer, called on Trump to sit down at the bargaining table.

    “The National Labor Relations Board has consistently told Donald Trump and his company that the union election wasn’t rigged and that he must sit down and negotiate with the Culinary Union,” Arguello-Kline said. “Mr. Trump is breaking federal law and Trump Hotel Las Vegas is operating illegally. Mr. Trump should accept the federal government’s order to negotiate and treat his workers with respect.”

    Unlike most Republican presidential nominees, Trump has pitched himself as a candidate for union workers. He boasts of having “great relationships” with labor unions, and claims he can raise wages and bring high-paying manufacturing jobs back from overseas.

    His dispute in Las Vegas has complicated that pitch, to say the least. As The Huffington Post first reported earlier this year, Trump and his partners there spent more than half a million dollars on high-priced consultants whose job is to dissuade workers from unionizing. Workers voted in favor of the union anyway.

    The Vegas workers have accused hotel management of illegally retaliating against them during the union organizing drive and pressuring them to vote down the union. The labor board’s general counsel, who acts as a quasi-prosecutor, found merit in several of those claims.

    The hotel’s refusal to bargain has led the union to take the rare step of calling for a boycott of Trump properties. At a protest in Washington last week, union member Joshua Armstead told HuffPost that he couldn’t in good conscience patronize a Trump hotel while Trump refused to bargain with his employees.

    “If you want to be president of the United States, and you want to make America great again, you as an employer have an obligation to sit down with your employees,” Armstead said. “If he refuses to do that, he has no business being president of the United States.”

    I never imagined someone from the Russian government would send Wikileaks the leaks. Cozy Bear is far too clever for that. They are masters of useful idiot tech.

    As I understand, the claim was that Cozy Bear and Fancy Bear were in the DNC and state dept systems for a year or so prior to the leaks.

    Pointing out the problems with Trump is not fun. I do it because I'm worried and kind of stunned.

    Trump is a con. He seems to be at the mercy of Russian criminals who have a stake in him. They played this same game in Ukraine and it did not go well for Ukrainians.

    I read that "Jane Doe" had to drop her case before because she has no money for lawyers. If some Clinton supporters gave her money so she could proceed, that does not mean she's hoaxing us.
    What has happened to Assange? He did not used to say such embarrassing things.

  20. IANAL but it was my understanding that personal injury lawyers and many others who do civil cases work on contingency - for a win or settlement - when they agree to take your case as a plaintiff.

    She should have been able to find good representation with or without Clinton money if she had a good case, which she seems to have with the witness. I have no confirmation that she took Clinton money or not, I am just responding to the allegations here based on my knowledge.

    I wish this case were getting more coverage, because this is both the worst and most credible of the sexual allegations against Trump if it's true that there's a direct witness. It's also the one that has advanced the furthest through the legal system. It is shocking how little coverage this case has received compared to, for example, those of the woman on the plane or the People reporter.

    The "there's no proof!" Is the usual for pedophile cases. The proof is had to get, doesn't mean it didn't happen, it often depends on evidence for people who were there i.e. Implicated or victims who face the same repression. "Why did she wait to come forward!?" Because she was scared of a rich litigious man.
    http://www.politico.com/blogs/under...n-jeffrey-epstein-underage-sex-lawsuit-210065

    There was solid evidence against Epstein and hopefully, in spite of the agreement to not pursue investigation against others, the cases can use that info. Epstein did the usual creepy pervert enticing and the usual - gathering evidence against the men who were using his sex slaves. He wouldn't want $$, he would trade the info for power or protection. That information is probably why he got such a sweet deal with essentially a gag placed on investigators.

    We May Have Unlocked the Mystery of Trump's Orange Skin | Mother Jones

    Quote:

    Why is Donald Trump so orange? This has been one of the mysteries of the 2016 presidential campaign. The internet is full of speculation, but the consensus is that Trump is an aficionado of bad spray tans or the tanning booth. (The white goggle lines are a dead giveaway.) He hasn't always been this shade. Fifteen years ago, Trump's pallor was almost normal. But something changed about 10 years ago and the internet hasn't fully explained why. There might be a strong clue: Trump's longtime friendship with the former CEO of a tanning company.

    For nearly 20 years, Trump has had a close personal and business relationship with an Indiana businessman named Steve Hilbert, who in 2006 became CEO of New Sunshine, a maker of tanning beds, spray booths, and Kardashian-branded tanning lotions and bronzers.

    Hilbert and Trump have much in common. Both men are 70, have made and lost fortunes, and have cycled through multiple marriages. They enjoy outsize lifestyles and indulge garish decorating tastes. And they share a similar orange skin tone that can result from the use — or overuse — of certain tanning products.

    National Enquirer Shielded Donald Trump From Playboy Model’s Affair Allegation | Wall Street Journal

    Tabloid owner American Media agreed to pay $150,000 for story from 1998 Playmate of the Year, but hasn’t published her account

    Quote:

    The company that owns the National Enquirer, a backer of Donald Trump, agreed to pay $150,000 to a former Playboy centerfold model for her story of an affair a decade ago with the Republican presidential nominee, but then didn’t publish it, according to documents reviewed by The Wall Street Journal and people familiar with the matter.

    The tabloid-newspaper publisher reached an agreement in early August with Karen McDougal, the 1998 Playmate of the Year. American Media Inc., which owns the Enquirer, hasn’t published anything about what she has told friends was a consensual romantic relationship she had with Mr. Trump in 2006. At the time, Mr. Trump was married to his current wife, Melania.

    Quashing stories that way is known in the tabloid world as “catch and kill.”

    In a written statement, the company said it wasn’t buying Ms. McDougal’s story for $150,000, but rather two years’ worth of her fitness columns and magazine covers as well as exclusive life rights to any relationship she has had with a then-married man. “AMI has not paid people to kill damaging stories about Mr. Trump,” the statement said.

    Dumping on Bronx kids, Donald style

    By David MacEnulty, Schoolhouse Voices, Medium

    Quote:

    For eight glorious years, I had the pleasure of teaching chess to children in grades K-5, in the poorest congressional district in the country and straddling the two highest crime precincts in the Bronx. These years were the toughest, most demanding, draining and difficult time of my life. They were also the most rewarding.

    Chess offers students an opportunity to stretch their minds and challenge their social-emotional skills in remarkable ways. Children who have successfully embraced the world of tournament chess —  culminating in city, state and national championships  —  will fear no challenge in the years ahead.

    People say chess is an inexpensive program: All you need are a room, tables, chairs and chess sets, and you are ready to go. Yes, but go where?

    Our school had a 97 percent poverty rate. The only way we could pay for entry fees, travel expenses and outside coaching was through donations. Patronage has always oiled the wheels of culture; without patronage, our team would go nowhere.

    So it was with great anticipation that we looked forward to Donald Trump coming to our school as “Principal for a Day,” a great program from PENCIL, a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing business leaders into the world of education.

    Surely this billionaire’s visit would be the catalyst for something special. After all, that was the point of the program. We had heard that an executive from a major computing company had given his school a full computer lab. Our school was buzzing with excitement.

    By coincidence, Trump’s visit coincided with a bake sale our chess team held every Tuesday to raise money to play in the local tournaments. On his tour through the building, Trump stopped at our bake sale and, having been told that we were raising money for the chess team, handed the parents running the sale a $1 million bill. It was fake.

    The parents were dumbfounded. It was one of those horribly awkward moments. Mr. Trump then gave the parents two $100 bills.

    Later, he met with our fifth-graders in the auditorium. We had 10 classes on a grade level. His big contribution to our school was that he would hold a lottery. He would take the winning class to the Nike store in Trump Tower to get new sneakers. His view of our students’ hopes and aspirations was clearly mired in a ghetto stereotype. As our (real) principal sardonically said later: “Why didn’t he just bring the watermelon?”

    One would think that before accepting the role of educational leader, Trump would have sent someone out for a little background research. Clearly that did not happen. He was winging it all the way, and he was in an environment he simply did not understand. Nor, it appeared, did he care to.

    There was a major disconnect between the person, the mission and the place. Recently, a lot has come out about Trump’s appeals to racist thought. From our interaction that day, I have to say, that part of his character has been in place for a long time. The amazing thing is, he thought he put on a great performance. The man is truly clueless.

    Editor’s note: Read the Washington Post’s article on Trump’s charity giving, which mentions his visit to MacEnulty’s school.

    David MacEnulty is an award-winning chess teacher and coach whose chess teams have won numerous city, state and national championships. He currently teaches at The Dalton School in New York.

    Woman who accused Donald Trump of raping her at 13 drops lawsuit | The Guardian

    Quote;

    A woman who had accused Donald Trump of raping her when she was a 13-year-old dropped her lawsuit against the Republican nominee on Friday.

    One of the accuser’s attorneys, Thomas Meagher, filed a one-page voluntary dismissal in district court in New York late Friday. Neither he nor a second attorney listed immediately responded to questions about the document.

    The woman, who had filed suit earlier this year under the pseudonym Jane Doe, had alleged that Trump and billionaire Jeffrey Epstein had raped her in 1994, when she was a 13-year-old aspiring model.

    This week she abruptly canceled a plan to speak publicly about the allegations, and another attorney, Lisa Bloom, cited “numerous threats” against her client.

    <snipped>

    A virtually identical lawsuit was filed in April in California and dismissed for technical errors. An investigation linked the lawsuits to Norm Lubow, a former television producer with a history of disputed allegations against celebrities. Both suits named Epstein, a financier who was convicted of soliciting sex from an underage girl in 2008.

    The court order to Trump and Epstein’s attorneys gave no details of Doe’s complaint, but the original suit alleged that Trump assaulted her at Epstein’s home in Manhattan and at parties hosted by the financier.

    Melania Trump modeled in US prior to getting work visa | The Associated Press

    Quote:

    Melania Trump was paid for 10 modeling jobs in the United States worth $20,056 that occurred in the seven weeks before she had legal permission to work in the country, according to detailed accounting ledgers, contracts and related documents from 20 years ago provided to The Associated Press.

    The details of Mrs. Trump's early paid modeling work in the U.S. emerged in the final days of a bitter presidential campaign in which her husband, Donald Trump, has taken a hard line on immigration laws and those who violate them. Trump has proposed broader use of the government's E-verify system allowing employers to check whether job applicants are authorized to work. He has noted that federal law prohibits illegally paying immigrants.

    Mrs. Trump, who received a green card in March 2001 and became a U.S. citizen in 2006, has always maintained that she arrived in the country legally and never violated the terms of her immigration status. During the presidential campaign, she has cited her story to defend her husband's hard line on immigration.

    The wife of the GOP presidential nominee, who sometimes worked as a model under just her first name, has said through an attorney that she first came to the U.S. from Slovenia on Aug. 27, 1996, on a B1/B2 visitor visa and then obtained an H-1B work visa on Oct. 18, 1996.

    The documents obtained by the AP show she was paid for 10 modeling assignments between Sept. 10 and Oct. 15, during a time when her visa allowed her generally to be in the U.S. and look for work but not perform paid work in the country. The documents examined by the AP indicate that the modeling assignments would have been outside the bounds of her visa.

    <snipped>

    Some ledgers obtained by the AP identify Mrs. Trump by her professional name and detail her involvement with the modeling agency from July 18, 1996, through Sept. 26, 1997. Other documents from the same accounting ledgers identify Mrs. Trump as Melanija Knaus and list $20,526 in gross earnings for the period before she was granted her work visa on Oct. 18, 1996. The documents also show the modeling company paid for her rent, lent her money and paid for her pager.

    Why Vladimir Putin’s Russia Is Backing Donald Trump | Newsweek

    Quote:

    In phone calls, meetings and cables, America’s European allies have expressed alarm to one another about Donald Trump’s public statements denying Moscow’s role in cyberattacks designed to interfere with the U.S. election. They fear the Republican nominee for president has emboldened the Kremlin in its unprecedented cybercampaign to disrupt elections in multiple countries in hopes of weakening Western alliances, according to intelligence, law enforcement and other government officials in the United States and Europe.

    While American intelligence officers have privately briefed Trump about Russia’s attempts to influence the U.S. election, he has publicly dismissed that information as unreliable, instead saying this hacking of incredible sophistication and technical complexity could have been done by some 400-pound “guy sitting on their bed” or even a child.

    Officials from two European countries tell Newsweek that Trump’s comments about Russia’s hacking have alarmed several NATO partners because it suggests he either does not believe the information he receives in intelligence briefings, does not pay attention to it, does not understand it or is misleading the American public for unknown reasons. One British official says members of that government who are aware of the scope of Russia’s cyberattacks both in Western Europe and America found Trump’s comments “quite disturbing” because they fear that, if elected, the Republican presidential nominee would continue to ignore information gathered by intelligence services in the formulation of U.S. foreign policy.

    Trump’s behavior, however, has at times concerned the Russians, leading them to revise their hacking and disinformation strategy. For example, when Trump launched into an inexplicable attack on the parents of a Muslim-American soldier who died in combat, the Kremlin assumed the Republican nominee was showing himself psychologically unfit to be president and would be forced by his party to withdraw from the race. As a result, Moscow put its hacking campaign temporarily on hold, ending the distribution of documents until Trump stabilized, both personally and in the polls, according to reports provided to Western intelligence.

    America’s European partners are also troubled by the actions of several people close to Trump’s campaign and company. Trump has been surrounded by advisers and associates with economic and familial links to Russia. The publicized connections and contacts between former campaign manager Paul Manafort with Ukraine have raised concerns. Former Trump adviser Carter Page is being probed by American and European intelligence on allegations that he engaged in back-channel discussions with Russian government officials over the summer. Page did travel to Moscow, but he denies any inappropriate contact with Russian officials. The allies are also uneasy about retired Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, a Trump adviser who was reportedly considered a possible running mate for the GOP nominee. Last December, Flynn attended a dinner at the Metropol Hotel in honor of the 10th anniversary of RT, a Russian news agency that has been publicly identified by American intelligence as a primary outlet for Moscow’s disinformation campaigns. Flynn, who was two seats away from Russian President Vladimir Putin at the dinner, has frequently appeared on RT, despite public warnings by American intelligence that the news agency is used for Russian propaganda.

    Western intelligence has also obtained reports that a Trump associate met with a pro-Putin member of Russian parliament at a building in Eastern Europe maintained by Rossotrudnichestvo, an agency under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs that is charged with administering language, education and support programs for civilians. While the purpose of that meeting is unclear, and there is no evidence that Trump was aware it took place, it has become another fact that has alarmed officials from at least one NATO ally. Finally, Trump’s repeated glowing statements about Putin throughout the campaign — and his shocking comment that the Russians were not in Crimea — have perplexed some foreign officials, who fear that under a Trump presidency, the United States would no longer stand with Western Europe in regard to Moscow.

    Trump and his campaign have also spread propaganda created as part of the Kremlin's effort, relying on bogus information generated through traditional Russian disinformation techniques. In one instance, a manipulated document was put out onto the internet anonymously by propagandists working with Russia; within hours, Trump was reciting that false information at a campaign rally. The Trump campaign has also spread claims from Sputnik, another news outlet identified by American intelligence as part of the Russian disinformation campaign. For example, almost immediately after the posting of an article by Sputnik attacking this Newsweek reporter, the Trump campaign emailed a link to the piece to American reporters, urging them to pursue the same story.
