Clinton up by double digits after Trump tape’s release
Hillary Clinton has opened up a double-digit lead on Donald Trump in a new poll conducted entirely after the release of video in which the Republican nominee talks about groping women without their consent.
If there was one resonant moment, it was Anderson Cooper getting Trump to say he had never acted on the behavior he described on The Tape.
“Thank you for providing the tape we’ll run after the next allegation.”
The Left condemns the GOP candidate even as it celebrates crudity and sexual exhibitionism throughout the culture.
Trump’s truest believers start to worry: “You could easily lose this election”

Our nation has reached a critical juncture in our body politic. There is no escaping the message of the black swans
Re-elect Ron Johnson
Ron Johnson’s victory over Russ Feingold in 2010 was probably the highlight of that election night for me. Unlike in Illinois, the victorious Republican was a strong conservative. Unlike in Pennsylvania, the Republican defeated an entrenched incumbent and one of the most left-wing members of the Senate.
Trump bounces back, but back to where?
My view is that Donald Trump won tonight’s debate. He dominated the stage and landed shot after shot on Hillary Clinton. Hillary, meanwhile, struggled to say much that will connect with voters except perhaps Muslim-Americans.
Panicky GOP Leaders Should Come Home after Trump Wins Debate #2
I was disturbed so many Republican leaders deserted Donald Trump within hours of the publication of the now infamous 2005 video, though I wasn’t surprised. Most politicians are cowards, prone to panic. But they didn’t stop to think.

Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg shared research with key members of the Clinton campaign, newly released emails show.
NYC election official claims voter fraud in minority neighborhoods in new James O’Keefe video
Quite a score for Project Veritas. The difficulty in creating an effective sting video, I’d guess, is that the prominence of the target and their willingness to speak candidly to strangers are usually inversely proportional.
DNC Chief Donna Brazile Leaked Sanders Info to Clinton Campaign
WikiLeaks hack reveals DNC’s favoritism as Clinton staff in damage control over Hillary’s support for DOMA
Hillary In Leaked Email: Saudi Arabia And Qatar Are Funding ISIS

Brazile denies giving Clinton camp advance notice on CNN town hall question

Physically Attacked by Donald Trump – a PEOPLE Writer’s Own Harrowing Story
In December 2005, PEOPLE writer Natasha Stoynoff went to Mar-a-Lago to interview Donald and Melania Trump. What she says happened next left her badly shaken.

According to Twitter, he is blocked from accessing his account for twelve hours, at which point they reserve the right to make him pass additional hurdles to access his account.
Podesta e-mails: Conservative Catholicism an “an amazing bastardization of the faith”
The Wikileaks hack of the e-mail system of Hillary Clinton campaign manager John Podesta has produced plenty of strange moments, but perhaps none stranger than a 2011 discussion of Catholicism in which Podesta himself played no part. The brief exchange between Jennifer Palmieri, now Hillary’s comms director but at the time working at the Center for American Progress, and CAP fellow John Halpin sounds so bitter and offers such silly arguments about Catholicism that it looks fake. If legit, these hacked e-mails provide a rather disturbing look into the minds of Hillary’s brain trust when it comes to Catholics, especially conservative Catholics.
Will Hillary explain her dream of “open borders”?
Just as America was tossed — or did we eagerly jump — into the sexual political gutter with Bill and Hillary and Donald, there was other news breaking.

White Whale: How Pennsylvania Explains Republicans’ Predicament

Are the next 26 days the last act in an American tragedy?
You know what those of us who are not opera fans really hate about opera? We hate the fact that, after the heroine has been dealt the fatal blow, it still takes her another half hour of frantic soprano singing before she dies. I suspect that the attenuated operatic death scene will be an apt metaphor for the last 27 days of America’s 2016 election cycle. Trump and his supporters are still singing as loudly and as strongly as they can, but the death-blow has already been dealt.

Has the tide turned yet again in the volatile presidential race? In New Hampshire, even before the cascade of October surprises that have battered the Donald Trump campaign, Hillary Clinton appeared well on her way to an easy win in the WBUR poll series. Today, though, the four-way race has gone back to a near-virtual tie, thanks in part to a bleedout from Gary Johnson to Trump

Get ready for a photo finish in Wisconsin. Incumbent Ron Johnson had trailed by significant margins in his attempt to defeat Russ Feingold in a rematch of their 2010 Senate race, at times by double digits.

Clinton Operatives Brag They “Scared Off” Chief Justice
In one of the more remarkable Wikileaks exchanges, Clinton operatives Neera Tanden and Jennifer Palmieri took credit for “scaring off” Chief Justice John Roberts by threatening to make the Supreme Court’s decision in the first Obamacare case, NFIB v.

#2A victory: Bushmaster granted immunity in Sandy Hook case
Back in April I wrote about the ongoing lawsuit against Bushmaster which looked to hold the company accountable for the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The judge in that case, Barbara Bellis, had heard a motion from the defendants to have the suit dismissed because it would have violated the protections given to gun manufacturers under the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA).

Coming next in ObamaCare: Insurance rationing?
For Minnesotans, coming next is meant literally. In order to keep insurers from fleeing the Mnsure ObamaCare exchange, Commerce Commissioner Mark Rothman and Governor Mark Dayton had to agree to massive rate increases across the board, which have garnered most of the headlines and discussion in this state and around the nation. Another less-discussed concession, though, might have even worse portents for the unaffordable Affordable Care Act. Rothman and Dayton have allowed insurers to cap enrollments in order to limit their losses – an act of rationing that may set precedent for negotiations in other states.

WikiLeaks Exposes Workings of an American “Nomenklatura”
The nomenklatura (literally “name list”) was one of the indispensable components of the former Soviet Union.

Racism at the Yale Bowl? Hardly
Dartmouth and Yale have been playing football against one another for a long time. Last Saturday, when they played at the Yale Bowl, was the 100th meeting of the teams.

Given that long history, someone at Yale thought it would be fun to produce a program that featured a collection of vintage programs from past years.

Why I oppose gay marriage.
Australian parliament is consumed with the agonizing decision of whether or not they should hold a national plebiscite on gay marriage. The left is resoundingly against a plebiscite because it will cost money to do so, which is somewhat surprising when you consider that they normally spend other people’s money like a drunken sailor in a bar with hookers. The real reason they are against a plebiscite is because they are unsure of the result, particularly as the dirt people have been making surprising moves this year such as voting for things like Brexit.

The Norman Conquest was a disaster for England. We should celebrate Naseby, not Hastings
The Norman Conquest was a cataclysm for the English people. After 1066, the country was clenched in a mailed fist. Castles, until then a rarity, sprang up everywhere. Many still stand, handsome and crenelated, their geographical situation advertising their grim purpose. For these were not defences against a foreign foe, but instruments of internal repression, from whose arrow-slits new proprietors peered out at a beaten people.
The Tocsin is Sounding
I’m not in a good mood. This happens. Partly this is because I was caught by a cold in the middle of a downward spiral (downward spirals happen. They’re fairly normal, I know how to correct for them, and most people can’t tell I’m in one. It’s just human interaction becomes a little more difficult and I become more of an hermit. Also, at a party, you might notice me in a corner, more. I’ve been dealing with this since I was seven or eight. I manage it so that chemicals don’t need to manage it for me. In this case it was responsible for my catching a cold, because I’ve been so isolated from human contact going to a diner made me catch a cold.)
I’m getting really tired of the creepy clowns.
