On Friday (October 7), WikiLeaks said it had obtained almost 50,000 emails from the inbox of John Podesta, aide to Hillary Clinton. Allegedly, the emails dealt with statements Clinton had made to and about Wall Street.

Senator Bernie Sanders, who battled Clinton in the primary, kept bugging her to release what she told Wall Street in secret speeches for which she was paid huge sums. She would not comply.

According to Reader Supported News, she said to a law firm audience, "I represented and worked with so many talented, principled people who made their living in finance."

Allegedly, that statement was made in a 2014 speech sponsored by Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd, a San Diego law firm. Robbins Geller is a firm that tends to represent investors who have been fleeced by financial rascals, including some on Wall Street.

Sorry, Donnie, but your pal Rocky's not going to be president.

petezanko: No San Diego journalist has slammed Roque De La Fuente as I have. I got the scoop on his attempt to run for president. When I revealed it, I made note of the fact that Roque and I have long had a very rocky -- er, uh -- relationship.

I get a kick out of your hostility, but you are really off base on this one. Best, Don Bauder

I would not mind if both political parties threw out their standard bearers and gave the the voters more credible candidates.....

Regardless of which one is elected, we can only hope that neither has the influence to damage the nation. And maybe we can hope that the choice is removed from office by constitutional methods, given the sleaze that either one would bring to the office.

Visduh; Trump said tonight (Sunday) in the debate that if elected, he would have the Attorney General look into possible crimes by Hillary. Then he said she belongs in jail. Are we a banana republic? Or Russia? Best, Don Bauder

with Trump what we see is what we get, with Hillary, its what we don't see that we will get ( stuck with)

Murphyjunk: I understand that there is much more to come out on Trump's past. This complicates your statement. Best, Don Bauder

What Trump said is flat out illegal...according to legal experts and unprecedented. The President cannot direct the AG to persecute/prosecute his enemies and opponents...Last person to try that was Nixon...whose Attorney General Mitchell went to Federal Prison to be followed by his boss Nixon...only Nixon was saved by a Pardon by Ford....Historians still debate whether Ford made a "deal" with Nixon for the Presidency..

SportsFan0000: Trump repeated the threat again today (Wednesday). He doesn't seem to care that this step would be illegal in the U.S. (not in the Congo).This is what we are up against. Best, Don Bauder

While neither of the main candidates really can't be the "best" America has to offer, the question is will America thrive under four more years of the same or similar policies in place today. The strength of the Republic is its ability to change, or not change, based on the will of "the people".

I am amused by this spectacle. The Republicans want to abolish the Environmental Protection Agency. It was Richard Nixon that established the EPA.

The final presidential debate will be in Las Vegas. If I were Hillary, I would ask Donald "that everyone knows the house always wins.... why Donald, did yours always lose?"

Three bankrupt casinos in Atlantic City. It can be attributed to risk taking, but also incredibly poor judgment.

Ponzi: Yes, several Trump casinos went bankrupt in Atlantic City, but Trump didn't get bruised. His bondholders got clobbered. Best, Don Bauder

I wish we had a true third party so that no majority could win the House or Senate which would force the Congress to work together to get anything passed. Most people I know have conservative views on some issues, liberal views on others and somewhere in between on others. Most people are slightly right or left of center yet our elected officials seem to represent only the extreme of their party.

AlexClarke: There are geographic reasons for the phenomenon you cite. To a great extent, the radical right is based in the South. Best, Don Bauder

SportsFan0000 Oct. 10, 2016 @ 1:23 p.m.

The "Radical Right" as you call it consists of Old Confederate sympathizers in the Old Confederate States...Right wing Talk Radio and TV get their biggest ratings in the Old Confederate States....Still pining for "the good old days" of Slavery, plantations, Jim Crow laws, women barefoot, pregnant and in the kitchen and not voting etc.. It was all part of "Nixon's Southern Strategy" to unite conservatives, old confederates, old segregationists, old racists from the Confederacy into a solid Republican block always voting Republican. The Republican Party has not won a National Election since Nixon without using the "Southern Strategy" dividing and conquering people on RACE issues....Voting Rights, Civil Rights, Jim Crow Laws, Busing, Black on White Crime (Willie Horton ads), the Confederate Flag (Bush Jr. won his S. Carolina Primary and the Republican nomination defending the flag of Treason, Racism and Slavery the Stars and Bars....You wonder if he was running for Pres of the US or Pres of the Old Confederacy?!) the list goes on and on...

Progressive Republicans Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt must be rolling over in their graves to see what their Republican Party has become.

SportsFan0000: Nixon wasn't the first modern-day Republican with a Southern strategy. Goldwater opposed the civil rights bill and said states should set their own policies on race. He won some of the Southern states but, of course, got slaughtered overall. However, I don't think any Republican could have won that election. The nation was still grieving the Kennedy assassination. Best, Don Bauder

But what, pray, doth the stink conceal?

Don Bauder Oct. 13, 2016 @ 7:01 p.m.

Flapper: That's always the question, particularly with Trump. What else will come out? These sexual misdeeds are concealing any look at his taxes.

I am a member of the press, and loyal to it. But in re Trump, I keep wondering: why are we hearing about this outrage NOW? The things he said to Howard Stern alone should have been used against him in the Republican primaries. But the media were getting rich off Trump. Ditto his bankruptcies. Best, Don Bauder
