U.S. 'sponsors of terrorism' bill could fuel extremism: Saudi adviser
"(The bill risks) triggering chaos and instability in international relations and might contribute to supporting extremism, which is under intellectual siege, as the new legislation offers extremists a new pretext to lure youths to their extremist thoughts," al-Sheikh added without elaborating.
Look SFH here we differ ok? I don't care what contract you sign - in blood with the devil or WHATEVER - you do what is right. Full stop, the end. Otherwise you end up shooting people you don't know for no good reason because you signed a contract somewhere and now you find yourself in a country which you are told is the 'enemy'. And, me, I find that totally unacceptable. You do what is right. ALWAYS. And damn the consequence, the small print and the social pressure.
But then I'm someone who is always prepared to rock the boat. I don't go along to get along and I have been considered a 'loose cannon'. Well too bad. Tough luck. I live with that.
FWIW here's Dilbert's take on the Clinton episode.
If you sign not to tell anyone secrets then you don't.....if you're honest that is...
Not judging the morality of what the US govt say or do but if you join the govt agency and sign a secrecy agreement then either adhere to it or resign and campaign against it..Definition of patriot is somewhat different in my dictionary
Well I disagree with you there and FWIW I think Trump has a right to his opinion - with or without the Liberace voice. Here from Snowden:
"This argument proposes that someone at some point could become a criminal, therefore we should watch and monitor everyone... Perhaps we want to make that decision but we should be conscious of what it is that we are agreeing to. It would be a world in which not only are we completely incapable of resisting government, should they choose to interfere with our resistance because, of course, how do you coordinate, how do you organise, how do you protest, when the government has every detail about the life of everyone who could be or is or perhaps might one day be in the opposition. It’s a fundamental disempowerment of the citizenry relative to the state..."
Trump Soars In Latest Polls: Sees 5 Point Lead In Ohio And Latest LA Times National Poll
Bloomberg reported this morning that Donald Trump leads Hillary Clinton by 5% points in a Bloomberg Politics poll of Ohio, a key battleground state that has backed the winning presidential candidate in every election since 1964. The gap "underscores the Democrat’s challenges in critical Rust Belt states after one of the roughest stretches of her campaign."
The Republican nominee leads Clinton 48 percent to 43 percent among likely voters in a two-way contest and 44 percent to 39 percent when third-party candidates are included.
but if Hillary slips and.a Trump presidency gains traction becomes a factor seeing as Markets assume Hillary wins. With Trump more uncertainty... thus politicals become possible "surprising, sudden, intense, and large" trading theme and a tradeable issue

Having worked as a software developer for 40 years there is a difference between backup and retention policies. Cutting the backups to every 30 days is just poor judgement ( and if she did not get told that then it was bad IT advice ). The email sounds more like I want to cover my butt because I don't know if there is a problem ( after all they did not read the emails ) and I don't want to be the scape goat ( been there ). This not a smoking gun and this not the political forum.

Three people appeared before the House Oversight & Government Reform Committee this morning to testify in regards to their involvement in the Hillary email scandal. Two of those individuals, Paul Combetta (the "oh shiet" guy) and Bill Thornton, were from Platte River Networks, the Denver-based IT business chosen to maintain Hillary's email server after she resigned as Secretary of State. The third individual was Justin Cooper, the Bill Clinton aide who originally set up Hillary's private email address.
Both of the Platte River Networks executives took the 5th but only after Committee Chairman, Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), asked about the following email exchange between Combetta and another undisclosed PRN staff member which was sent on 8/19/15:
"Wondering how we can sneak an email in now, after the fact, asking them [the Clinton camp] when they told us to cut the backups and have them confirm it for our records. Starting to think this whole thing is really covering up some shady censored. I just think if we have it in writing that they told us to cut the backups then we can go public with our statement saying we've had the backup since day one when we were told to trim to 30 days would make us look a whole lot better."
We assume the "30-days" reference was made in regards to Hillary's decision to cut her email retention policy after providing "all" of her "work-related" emails to the State Department.

I believe Trump was institutionalized in a mental hospital for a nervous breakdown in 1990, which is why he won't release medical records.

Bennet Omalu, the forensic pathologist who has made the NFL so uncomfortable with his discovery of chronic traumatic encephalopathy in the brains of deceased players, suggests that Hillary Clinton’s campaign be checked for possible poisons after her collapse Sunday in New York.
Omalu, whose story was famously told in the movie “Concussion,” made the suggestion on Twitter, writing that he advised campaign officials to “perform toxicologic analysis of Ms. Clinton’s blood.”
Omalu, whose credentials and tenacity are well known. He wasn’t giving up on Twitter, adding that his reasoning is that he does not trust Russian President Vladimir Putin or Donald Trump, the Republican presidential nominee who has expressed admiration for Putin.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The No. 3 Senate Democrat is disclosing that he was diagnosed with pneumonia.
Senator Chuck Schumer was diagnosed several weeks ago. His disclosure Monday comes amid furor over Hillary Clinton’s own pneumonia diagnosis.
In response to questions from The Associated Press, Schumer spokesman Matt House says in a statement that Schumer was diagnosed with pneumonia and took antibiotics per doctor’s order, and also kept a lighter schedule. House says, “His doctor has pronounced him all cleared up and he’s feeling much better.”
Pneumonia Bug That Struck Hillary Clinton Also Seriously Sickened Several Members of Her Staff
At the end of August, two weeks before Clinton was diagnosed with pneumonia, a debilitating bug was making the rounds among staff at her headquarters and campaign aides who travel with Clinton, a source tells PEOPLE.
At least half a dozen senior staff were felled, including campaign manager Robby Mook. Two top advisers even needed emergency medical treatment, the source says. One top adviser diagnosed at a Brooklyn urgent-care center with a respiratory infection was being treated with antibiotics in the days before Clinton's diagnosis. Another top adviser was taken by ambulance to the ER by ambulance after collapsing from what turned out to be severe dehydration, the source said
One way or another the Dems and the Repub need to drag Hillary across the finish line, with her declared as winner on Nov 9.
After that it dosen't matter, if she can't make it to the Inaug, Kaine will take her place as Pres. and they'll work out another VP.
This will keep the Establishment in power.

There was a burst of righteous populist anger anger last week, when it emerged that Wells Fargo had engaged in pervasive, "massive" fraud since at least 2011, including opening credit cards secretly without a customer’s consent, creating fake email accounts to sign up customers for online banking services, and forcing customers to accumulate late fees on accounts they never even knew they had. For this criminal conduct, Wells was fined $185 million
As "punishment" Wells Fargo told CNN that it had fired 5,300 employees related to the shady behavior over the last few years
What Wells did not disclose publicly to anyone is that the head of the group responsible for Wells' biggest consumer fraud scandal in years, is quietly leaving the bank with a $125 million bonus, a bonus which as Fortune's Stephen Gandel writes today will not see even one cent clawed back as part of the dramatic revelations.
