Experts say white supremacists see Trump as ‘last stand’

  • ASSOCIATED PRESS

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks during a campaign rally at the BB&T Center, Wednesday, Aug. 10, 2016, in Sunrise, Fla.

WASHINGTON >> Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and his campaign are expressing ideas similar to those espoused by white supremacists, legal, media and civil rights experts say.

In addition, the experts said Wednesday, white supremacists are using the 2016 presidential elections to attempt to control the culture of politics.

“Many white supremacists see this as their last stand for controlling the country,” Heidi Beirich, head of the Intelligence Project at the Southern Poverty Law Center, said on a conference call with reporters.

Representatives of Trump’s campaign and the Republican National Committee did not return calls seeking comment.

Beirich said Trump has flirted with these groups and their ideals through some of his campaign statements and platforms, including building a wall between the U.S.-Mexico border; a proposed ban on Muslims entering the country; planning to join Marco Rubio at what they consider an anti-LGBT event in Orlando on the two-month anniversary of the Pulse massacre; as the failure to immediately denounce the endorsement of David Duke, former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.

Angelo Carusone, executive vice president of Media Matters for America, a liberal advocacy group, noted that Trump has retweeted posts from white supremacist accounts on Twitter.

Twitter is Trump’s biggest microphone, and his rhetoric correlates with some of the beliefs of white supremacy organizations and communities, Carusone said.

Sophie Bjork-James, a Vanderbilt University lecturer and expert in white supremacist social movements, said white nationalists are attempting to increase their numbers through Trump’s campaign.

“They are organizing online to rebrand to respectable politics,” she said. “Instead of being racist, they try to be respectable, but they are also using conspiracy theories to control the media through their social media handles for white nationalist ideas.”

  • Donald Trump is the hero of racists, imbeciles and white supremacists. Just read comments on this website. Anyone with a working brain can see that he’s a violent, ignorant racist who plays to the cowardice and fear of failed, poorly educated white men.

    His supporters should be ashamed of themselves. But they have no shame. It’s a national disgrace.

    Trump is going to suffer a spectacular loss in November. Good riddance to him.

      • And a pedophile former congressman Mark Foley was seen immediately behind Mr. Trump at one of his rallies. Not Mr. Foley’s father.

        I’m sure you had some kind of point in mind. Didn’t you?

        • I heard that too. And Hillary’s serial sexual predator husband accompanies her and speaks for her. I’m sure you had some kind of point in mind. Didn’t you?

        • I think she did, following the style of argument that you introduced in your initial comment.

        • Oh me, oh my.

          Whatever in the world would we do without “experts”?

          The silly, the trivial, and the easily deluded depend on them so. Otherwise they would have to think for themselves, an unreasonable demand placed upon these credulous ninnies whose only recourse is to regurgitate the pap from the talking points conjured up by so called “experts”.

        • klastri..you’re an expert as are the “experts” of nothing. You are simply in your own world…that revolves around you! lol

        • well said thos…so called “experts” who may or may not be factual, may or may not be truthful despite any claims of being learned and studied individuals, who foist their agenda upon the gullible and unsuspecting.

        • A set of newly disclosed emails released this week by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch came from a search of computer files from Hillary Clinton’s longtime aide Huma Abedin, the group’s executive, Tom Fitton, revealed Wednesday.
          “The State Department got these emails last year,” Fitton told Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” program. “They’ve shown repeatedly that we’re getting these batches of emails that include emails Mrs. Clinton never turned over to the State Department, despite her promises to Congress and despite telling a court under oath under penalty of perjury that as far as she knew, everything was turned over. Obviously that’s not the case.” – via Newsmax

        • Not so fast, Klastri. Former U.S. Rep. Mark Foley was accused of sending sexually suggestive messages to House pages, but the Florida Department of Law closed a sex-criminal probe against him without filing charges because there was insufficient evidence to pursue criminal charges. Did you get that, Counselor? You should be ashamed of yourself for the false accusation.

        • Ronin006 – Can’t you ever get anything right? I wrote, correctly, that Mr. Foley is a pedophile. The evidence presented and disclosed – the text messages he sent – proved that beyond any doubt whatever, and prompted the investigation into his conduct. He admitting sending them, so that conduct was so and not just alleged.

          I did not write that he was convicted of any crime. The mere fact that someone is a pedophile does not suggest criminal activity.

          You need to learn how to read, or to stop playing lawyer.

        • Ronin: Yes, Foley was never charged with any crimes but based on the available evidence do you deny Foley is a pedophile? If Foley was innocent of all accusations, why did he resign from Congress? If Foley was innocent he should have NEVER resigned.

        • Klastri, Inverse, it may surprise you to know that in the U.S., people are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. You seem to think otherwise. In what court of law was Foley found guilty of being a pedophile or sex offender of any kind?

        • Foley always has said he did nothing illegal and that he never had sexual contact with teens. FBI and state investigations were closed without criminal charges.

        • Ronin006 – I did not write that he was convicted of a crime, nor did I accuse him of being guilty of a crime, so you’re making things up again.

          You might consider having a literate friend read to you my comments. They are correct and I stand by them.

        • Yes, Klastri, you did not say Foley was convicted of a crime. What you did was call him a pedophile which is akin to saying he is a criminal.

        • Ronin006 – You’re wrong and you are unable to admit that. Either that or you are deliberately lying. The word pedophile in no way suggests a crime or conviction.

          I choose words carefully. You can’t, because you don’t know what words mean. And rather than do 5 minutes of research, you write ridiculous and incorrect things.

          You should stop playing attorney. You’re lousy at it.

      • shame on you Tita: that is such an ignorant comment. Hillary is a vicious hawk whose bloody attacks on ISIS and the Taliban have long been noted. If anything, she is too much the militarist and “tough guy” when it comes to terrorism. I wish she were less warlike. She was always more hawkish than Obama. Trump is manipulating you.

        • @allie.. I’m not the one who had a Taliban supporter at my rally. She and her people should have been more aware and sensitive about who was sitting in her audience.

        • Tita Girl – I’m sorry that you don’t seem to know how rallies work. There are no advance background checks made of people who attend. They show up, pass a Secret Service screening, and sit down.

          You learn something new from me every day. You’re welcome.

        • Trump panders to the gullible, easily led, Tea Party folk, Neo Nazis, White Supremacists, and bible thumpers, and other herds of sheep

        • True democrat leftist, Saul Alinsky tactic. Keep calling the opponent names and accusing them of everything under the sun. They spend most of their time trying to disprove the allegations. and in the mean time No one talks about the actual troubles she is having in multiple areas. Don’t look at these emails!. Trump is a Racist. We’ll get the guy that did this video!. Trump is a racist. never mind the Clinton Foundation actually did a deal with the Nigerian war lord! Trump is a racist. Folks better wake up and smell what Hillary is got cooking. The Dems have quite a long history of racism going back to slavery. and all the way up to the most recent member of congress that was in the KKK. Do they not teach history any more? Are we so blind no to see who is pulling the strings of these puppets? One world? Open Boarders? It’s not racism to build a wall unless you are selling drugs and feel that it might cut into your business.

        • Yep, Trump is no racist, just look at the diversity of his audience. Every one of those white people look different.

        • berrygood: when being a racist leader puts you in the same boat as people like Hitler and Saddam Hussein, It’s kind of a big deal and maybe more important than all of the emails on her server or anything else she’s been accused of. You say “do they not teach history anymore” – well, you could be right about that… or, you obviously ignored all the chapters on racist dictators because that is what you are doing now… and you and your Trump supporters do it while patting yourselves on the back for somehow being smarter than everyone else for pointing out a few trees in Clinton’s past while ignoring the racist forest of Trump’s present.

        • Trump doesn’t cherry pick the supporters who get tv exposure like Crooked Hillary does. 10 blacks, 10 Asians, 10 taliban, 3 White’s, 2 native Americans. 2 gays, 2 lesbians, etc.

        • Sarge: using breitbart as a source for a conservative argument won’t get you any points with anyone. You were better off cherry-picking portions of WSJ articles and drawing unfounded conclusions from them. Fail again…

        • aaron–Try this one if you don’t like Breitbart….A new batch of State Department e-mails released Tuesday showed the close and sometimes overlapping interests between the Clinton Foundation and the State Department when Hillary Clinton served as secretary of state.
          The documents raised new questions about whether the charitable foundation worked to reward its donors with access and influence at the State Department, a charge that Clinton has faced in the past and has always denied. – via The Boston Globe

        • Newly released emails have shown again the troublesome interconnections between the Clinton Foundation and the Hillary Clinton-led State Department.
          The conservative accountability group Judicial Watch released Tuesday night a tranche of nearly 300 emails it obtained through a lawsuit, and they paint a picture of some of the conflicts of interest created by a situation in which Hillary Clinton ran U.S. foreign policy as her husband’s foundation acted around the globe. – via The Atlantic

      • It’s not a rumor that he supports the Taliban. The evidence are the You Tube videos he made . It’s not a rumor that he is supporting Hillary. He was interviewed by WPTV and happily showed off a sign he made supporting Clinton. In light of what his mass murdering son did, the Clinton campaign should have been more aware and sensitive of who was sitting in her audience.
        Denying the truth makes You look dumb here.

        http://www.wptv.com/news/state/orlando-shooters-father-attends-hillary-clinton-rally-in-kissimmee

        • You’re making up the fact that I’m denying something. Mr. Mateen was obviously in the audience at Mrs. Clinton’s rally. Just as Mr. Foley was in the audience at Mr. Trump’s rally. Perhaps his campaign should have been more aware that a pedophile was seen sitting behind Mr. Trump.

          You are apparently trying to say, incorrectly, that a candidate supports everything believed by every person who attends a debate. That’s wrong, of course, but you can develop any fantasy you choose. And you develop plenty.

        • That Hillary Clinton rally was open to all. She cannot be held responsible for everyone who shows up. Fox News and other right-wing media is once again telling it’s viewers something other than the truth.

        • OldDiver – Of course that’s true. The Fox News business model relies on low information voters.

        • FOX NEWS the number one rated cable news network. Doing a great job providing real news versus the stuff put out by ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC and the rest of the MSM that attack Mr Trump on a daily basis. The Clinton Foundation and Classified emails will do HiLIARy in. Wiki Wiki

        • Hillary is a strong ally of Israel and is heavily supported by the powerful Israeli lobbies in America. She has won their money and support for her militarist responses to terrorism and Iran. Israel fears any country with nuclear weapons that will check their power or expansion. ASs a result, the media keeps up a non-stop harrange against Iran. It all works well for Israel but poorly for the USA. Yes, Hillary is their candidate. Not the confused, silly entertainer called Trump

        • Sarge22: Foxnews ratings are tanking and I think CNN beat them in the last ratings. Now that the head of the snake perv CEO got canned and 3 of the most notable female anchors, Gretchen Carlson, Megyn Kelly and now Andrea Tantaros have all accused Ailes of workplace sexual harassment. I stopped watching when they yanked Tantaros off of the air and now that Ailes (aka “raw hamburger meat”) is gone, they are rudderless, boring and nothing more than an impotent mouthpiece trying to prop up Trump. Outnumbered has become BORING without Tantaros although some of the women try to compensate by wearing really short skirts like Tantaros but it has also become BORING. I now watch mainly CNN because I cannot stand the relentless pro-Trump propaganda on FoxNews. I cannot stand Don Lemon but Brooke Baldwin is pretty good. Maybe Tantaros can get a job at CNN like former FoxNews employees Alison Camerota, Kyrn Chetry, Bob Beckel and many others.

        • Fox is still doing okay and Fox Business with Lou Dobbs Tonight is an enjoyable show. Good thing Roger is gone and now they can straighten things out. I do miss Andrea. CNN Clinton News Network is getting a little better but MSNBC is just ridiculous…. Fox News Channel finished No. 1 in all of basic cable in both primetime and total day viewers for the week of Aug. 1, while MSNBC beat CNN for the 11th time in 2016.

          Fox News has been the highest-rated network during primetime in eight of the past nine weeks and has won the total-day crown for six straight weeks. The network averaged 2.3 million viewers in primetime and 1.3 million viewers in total day last week.

          MSNBC finished No. 6 in primetime and No. 8 in total day, while CNN finished No. 9 in primetime and No. 10 in total day. MSNBC’s second-place finish is notable, as CNN won the primetime demo for the entire month of July. Last week, MSNBC averaged 1.22 million primetime viewers compared to 986,000 for CNN.

        • It’s not very often a self absorbed, narcissist know it all troll like Klastri comes along but you all should know better than to feed it.

        • Ronin006 – Like usual, you’re wrong.

          Mr. Foley’s text messages with boys were released during the investigation. Here’s just a short excerpt of only one. Mr. Folet is Maf54. The boy’s screen name was redacted.

          You’re wrong, and I’m not responding again to your ridiculous comments on this subject. Find someone else to educate you.

    • The Hillary Clinton campaign is sounding the alarm over rival Donald Trump’s sudden fundraising surge, alerting donors in an internal memo that his $80 million July haul was “far more” than expected and should serve as a “wake up call.
      Klastri, send money now. Don’t be a cheapskate.

    • With Trumps goal of making America White again, seems like all of the hate groups have come out from the cracks and are not re-energized to rise up, starting with former KKK grand wizard David Duke. Trump is the perfect champion for these groups, and I bet Donald is doing this all on purpose to out every politician out there with hate still boiling in their veins.

    • agree with klastri. As trump said months ago, he loves uneducated people since they are easy to manipulate. He is offering poor, uneducated white people nothing at all. Look carefully at his proposals: They serve the rich and do nothing for the middle class or poor. Trump loves to distract the media and his base by saying silly, outrageous things and starting phony controversies that mask his real purpose./

    • HOPE HE DIES OF A HEART ATTACK ALONG W/ HIS BUDDY FORMER KKK LEADER DAVID DUKE & THE SOONER THE BETTER … NO PLACE IN THIS COUNTRY FOR RACIST … ALSO JUST WHAT WE NEED A FIRST LADY WHOSE TAKEN NUDE PHOTOS … REAL CLASS !!!!!

    • Klastri, and the false concept of having white supremacist supported by Mr. Trump is being pushed by Liberal Progressives as the Southern Poverty Law Center, Media Matters, Geo Soros, the Tide Foundation, Intelligence Project and Report, etc. I guess it’s the only way the Liberal Progressives can stop Mr. Trump, by making up lies about him.

  • Liberal hit piece written to demonize Trump. What is so bad about this “article” is that it is in the “news” section of SA. It is such a shining example of “media bias” it is laughable if not a sad criticism of how corrupt the Democrat Machine has infiltrated the press.

  • Experts say old lady Clinton used a private server as Sec’y of State to steer “donations” to the Clinton Global Initiative. If you’re waiting for that headline in the SA I hope you have a lot of time on your hands. “Many white supremacists see this as their last stand for controlling the country,” Are these people on LSD?

    • I’ll answer my own question. No these people are not on LSD. They are counting on the ignorance, willful or not, of hand-wringing bed-wetting liberals. They quote the most left wing organizations in the political spectrum and package it as a news story in order to rally the faithful.

      • White supremacists, racists, xenophobes and imbeciles are supporting Trump. He has those voting blocks all wrapped up.

        The AP doesn’t need to “rally the faithful.” Mr. Trump is losing in a landslide. Don’t you read?

        • White supremacists are ignorant in thinking whites are the most advanced race. Oriental-white supremacists are lacking in the picture. A look at all the racially mixed societies in the world shows that race plays a slight role in the success of a person independent of discrimination. In mixed race racial differences are blurred. Trump has nothing to do with all this.

        • sarge22 – Other than the fact that Trump supporters are the ones who are afraid of their own shadows. The Republicans – as emphasized over and over again during the RNC convention – are the ones who display disgraceful cowardice and fear. They are bowing to the wishes of Bin Laden. It’s pathetic.

    • CEI, you do know when they left the White House they were “dead broke” and in debt. They had to fund their future somehow. What’s a little pay to play amongst frenemies? What’s a donation for if not for access into the State Dept.? The Clinton Foundation is so they don’t have to start a GoFundMe page. Don’t be heartless. Have some compa$$ion for the Clintons. Donate today.

  • The demographics are going towards Hispanic-black majority nation , so even a white supremacist president cannot reverse the future. The future will show if this will improve our standard of living. Looking at other countries as examples … well we shall see.

  • In most national polls, Trump appears on track to match or exceed the 62 percent support among white voters without a college education that Mitt Romney, according to exit polls, captured in 2012. Some Trump advisers believe he could blow past that elevated level to reach the two-thirds that Reagan won in 1984; the key may be reinforcing his position among blue-collar white women, who appear considerably more ambivalent about him than their male counterparts.

    Conversely, Trump seems at risk of losing even more ground among non-white voters, who already preferred Obama to Romney in 2012 by a resounding combined margin of 80-17 in the exit polls. Recent polls in Pennsylvania and Ohio found Trump drawing literally no support from African Americans. And although the samples of Latino voters in many media polls are too small to measure reliably, larger recent surveys released by the two major Spanish-language television networks (Telemundo and Univision) each showed Trump attracting fewer than one-in-five Hispanics, a significant drop even from Romney’s meager 27 percent.

    That leaves college-educated whites as the campaign’s most closely contested … major constituency.
    That leaves college-educated whites as the campaign’s most closely contested—and conflicted—major constituency. National surveys released this week by CNN, NBC/Wall Street Journal and ABC/Washington Post all showed the same result, with Trump leading Clinton among those white-collar whites by a single percentage point. Polls consistently show Clinton leading with college-educated white women (who narrowly titled against Obama last time) and usually have Trump leading among college-educated white men, though not by as much as Republicans typically do.

    This isn’t nearly enough for Trump. Even if he grows among blue-collar whites to Reagan ’84 levels, his struggles among non-whites means he likely can’t win without capturing either slightly below or just above 60 percent of college-educated whites, depending on how large a share of the vote they comprise. For comparison, the exit polls showed Romney winning 56 percent of white-collar whites last time.

    So far, the swing-state advertising blitz from Priorities USA, the super PAC supporting Clinton, has focused principally on preventing Trump from getting anywhere near that level. With ads like “Grace”—the arresting spot in which two white professional-looking suburban parents of a daughter with spina bifida express outrage at Trump mocking a disabled reporter—the PAC is “going for college whites right now,” said the veteran Democratic strategist. “The ceiling [on his overall support] is put in place by limiting his growth among college whites.”

    Trump is indeed facing mountainous skepticism among those well-educated whites. In the ABC/Post poll, 60 percent of them said he’s not qualified to be president. (Nearly as many said Clinton was qualified.) Half of college-educated whites in that survey said they believed Trump was biased against minorities and women. In other surveys, white-collar whites strongly prefer Clinton for handling foreign policy, race relations, and domestic social issues like abortion.

    Polls have also shown college-educated whites are much more positive than their blue-collar counterparts toward trade, immigration, and America’s growing racial diversity—all of which makes them a difficult audience for Trump’s insular agenda of defensive nationalism. With “all of these big exciting changes in society … there are people who have benefited and people who haven’t,” says the Republican pollster Kristen Soltis Anderson. “And if you have a college degree, you are more likely to [believe] those changes … have benefited you.”

    Also, he is trailing horribly in white educated females….you know the group that uneducated unemployed white male could never get,….

    • You’ve never dealt with love in the real world have you?

      It’s surprising how emotions can “cloud” an “educated” persons feelings about someone else.

        • You won’t see this story on the MSM>>>>>>It’s easy to see why Hillary Clinton wanted to keep her emails secret.
          The latest batch revealed by Judicial Watch – including 44 emails Clinton failed to hand over to the State Department, in violation of what was once known as “the law” – reveal what the New York Post calls a “shocking pay-for-play scheme.”

          The only quibble is that none of this is really “shocking” to anyone but dead-end Clinton supporters, and they’ll simply ignore it. The emails show that Clinton’s State Department worked exactly the way every reader of Clinton Cash would expect.

          VIDEO: OPINION JOURNAL: JUDGING HILLARY’S EMAIL SCANDAL
          As the New York Post puts it:

          Hillary Clinton put the State Department up for sale, with top aides pulling strings and doing favors for fat-cat donors to the Clinton Foundation — including a shady billionaire, according to smoking-gun emails released Tuesday.

          The stunning revelations include how wealthy contributors seeking influence or prestigious government gigs could fork over piles of cash to get access to Clinton’s inner circle, including top aides Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills.

        • Just providing a service that the one newspaper state doesn’t. The news with a different point of view. Experts say white supremacists see Trump as ‘last stand’ for equality. Who are the experts and who are the white supremacists? Just another hit piece on Mr Trump.

        • It’s the only paper in town. Rather odd that they haven’t hit on Djou this time around. Caldwell must be really crooked. Should be interesting on Saturday.

    • Interesting analysis.

      I read that twice as many women as men are graduating from college, which makes the demographics you quote even worse.

      As for

      “Also, he is trailing horribly in white educated females….you know the group that uneducated unemployed white male could never get,….”

      The second part of the sentence seems a little strong. I assume that you mean “college-educated”.

      It is not unknown for successful college educated females to marry non-college educated males.

      • While everything has an outlier, how many yard guys you know that are dating a CPA or a drywaller seeing a psychotherapist?

        A study published in the journal American Sociological Review , found that couples married between 2000 and 2004 in which both individuals had the same level of education were about one-third less likely to divorce than those in which men had more academic qualifications.

        Other related studies further conclude that higher education levels in women has a direct effect on union formation.

    • Is it true, Ike From Eli, that people these days go to places like Yale to learn how to be stupid?

      Judging from the tenor of your remarks ~~ ah, but in the spirit of boundless charity for which yours truly is famed, one need not finish that thought, eh?

      • If you mean by stupid, as in multiple Presidents of the US, US Supreme Court Justices, Putlitzer Award winners, Oscar Winners, Super Bowl Champions, Head of Investment firms, Presidents of too many universities to count, Deans of Law schools (Yale Law School is the most represented school within current law school deans) songwriters, directors, actors, etc………yes,,a very stupid bunch.

        • Do you know any other spoiled kids with rich parents besides those you mentioned? The majority were born on third base.

        • Please, comment on topics that you are actual knowledgeable. The Yale of today has a total need policy. That is to say, there are NO loans, and all aid is via grants. So, at 85k annual family income and below, you would pay literally nothing on room/board and tuition, which comes out to about 64k annually. Including RT airfare home twice a year and a MAC computer. Over 55% of matriculating students receive this type of aid. In most instances, it would be cheaper to attend Yale (provided you had the grades and scores) than any state university.

    • Keep walking further and further out over the water on this plank with the pointy end of the sword prodding your backside. That way you can make a huge splash when you read in your favorite “news” outlet of the success of President-Elect Trump a few months from now.

      Q: And then what of the “experts” we hear so much about these days?

      A: Oh how the mighty are fallen!

  • Could the disgustingly corrupt media possibly dump any more manure on Trump? Dislike the guy, but our “journalist” are so kind to Ms. Clinton, tip toeing around her dishonesty, incompetence, and corruption. No, the pathetic excuse for a news media is all Trump, all the time, 24/7. A disgusting display of yet another corrupt, destructive American institution.

    • Our so called “news” media folk became w h o r e s who went all out to prevent the public from learning the truth about their degenerate, gutless ‘Camelot’ hero, JFK more than half a century ago.

      And ever since, they have abandoned any hint of journalistic integrity in order to push an extremist political narrative in the misguided belief their job is to “comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable”.

      Don’t expect that to change anytime soon.

        • Like others have written you’re off your hinges. To not be able to even acknowledge Clinton’s corruption, dishonesty, and failures as Sec State requires a special kind of blindness to fact. Is that the kind of liberal fact you’re talking about?

          Journalism? To paraphrase the movie bandits, “we don’t need no stinkin’ journalism”.

          An even better description of the current state of “journalism” in the US: “Journalism is about covering important stories. With a pillow, until they stop moving.”

    • The Chump is bringing all this attention to himself. He can’t help himself. His lies and ignorant remarks is a big bullseye for the media. As long as he continues his stupid talk, Hilliary is a shoo in as POTUS.

      • Donald Trump’s campaign released a statement last night calling the emails from Band “more evidence that Hillary Clinton lacks the judgment, character, stability and temperament to be within 1,000 miles of public power.” Clinton, it continued, “views public office as nothing more than a means to personal enrichment,” calling her “corrupt.”

  • The most important decision when selecting a candidate to vote for is to assess their personal moral compass. It is certainly not about digesting the advertising propaganda that money assaults our senses with.

  • The mayor of Fairfax City, Virginia, who supports Hillary Clinton, was arrested Thursday for allegedly giving methamphetamine to an undercover detective in exchange for sex, according to Fairfax County police.

    Richard “Scott” Silverthorne, 50, was nabbed in the parking lot of the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Tysons Corner. He was charged with felony distribution of methamphetamine and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

    The mayor, who has held office in the Washington, D.C. suburb since 2012, was allegedly trading meth for sex on a website used to set up male-on-male sexual encounters.

  • Kathy Shelton was just 12 years old when a 41-year-old drifter raped her on the side of a desolate Arkansas road in 1975.

    Now, four decades later, she has agreed to be named and pictured for the first time in this Daily Mail Online exclusive because she is furious that her rapist’s defense attorney – Hillary Clinton – has been portraying herself as a lifelong advocate of women and girls on the campaign trail.

    3700A7B300000578-3729466-Clinton_pictured_in_1974_as_a_lawyer_for_the_Rodino_Committee_se-m-20_1470665299323

    In a lengthy interview with the Daily Mail Online, Shelton said Clinton is ‘lying’ when she claims to be a lifelong defender of women and girls.

    Shelton said Clinton accused her during the case of ‘seeking out older men’, and demanded that the 12-year-old undergo a grueling court-ordered psychiatric examination to determine whether she was ‘mentally unstable’.

    ‘I don’t think [Clinton’s] for women or girls. I think she’s lying, I think she said anything she can to get in the campaign and win,’ Shelton said. ‘If she was [an advocate for women and children], she wouldn’t have done that to me at 12 years old.’

  • Five Devastating Facts About Hillary Clinton’s Foreign Funder, Gilbert Chagoury

    The release of nearly 300 pages of emails belonging to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, which shine a spotlight on the crony connections Clinton facilitated between the State Department and her family foundation, highlights a particularly damning Clinton Foundation donor named Gilbert Chagoury.

  • As the Republican Party shrivels away to its inevitable demographic demise, along comes Donald Trump to put the invalid on a crash diet that brings its racist skeleton into high relief.

    • The release of nearly 300 pages of emails belonging to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, which shine a spotlight on the crony connections Clinton facilitated between the State Department and her family foundation, highlights a particularly damning Clinton Foundation donor named Gilbert Chagoury.

      • Wishful thinking from the party of Jim Beam and Japanese sushi. While the party of cupcakes drinks the kool aid provided by the infamous Clinton Foundation.

      • Hmmm. If I recall, it was Democrat Roosevelt that issued the executive order that resulted in the internment of 120,000 innocent folks. Yes, the same Democrat who had loudly proclaimed “There is nothing to fear but fear itself”. What a hypocrite.

  • this article confirms what I stated 3 month ago about trumpy is using the race card to get elected – catering to white supremacists. many of his policies, deporting immigrants, building a wall, not allowing muslims to immigrate to US, etc. all are reflections of white supremacists ideals. these folks want to make America white again, feeling that it became dark with Obama during the past 8 years and fear that under Hillary, many of obamas policies will continue. also believe that trumpy is a white supremacists too, otherwise, he would not campaign under the white supremacists ideals. he is truly a idiotic bigot and a tax cheat.

  • I think Custer would be a great nickname for Donald . . . And I kind of like Bonnie for Hillary’s . . . But above all I think that Gary would make a great president!

  • So far 70 Republicans, including nearly 20 former RNC staffers, have signed an open letter to the RNC chairman, saying “We believe that Donald Trump’s divisiveness, recklessness, incompetence, and record-breaking unpopularity risk turning this election into a Democratic landslide, and only the immediate shift of all available RNC resources to vulnerable Senate and House races will prevent the GOP from drowning with a Trump-emblazoned anchor around its neck…This should not be a difficult decision, as Donald Trump’s chances of being elected president are evaporating by the day.”

  • Let’s not forget.
    1-State Department releases emails tying Clinton to Foundation while Secretary of State. Pay for Play.
    2-Iran Scientist executed. Clinton implicated
    3-No comment on $400 million ransom payment.
    4-Siddique Mateen endorses Crooked Hilliary Clinton.
    5-Mayor of Fairfax, VA accused of meth for sex endorses Crooked Hilliary.
    6-Parents of Benghazi killed file suit against Clinton for defamation,
    7-Top economists proclaim Crooked Hilliary speech 8 more years of Obama recession.
    8-Crooked Hilliary smears 12 yr. old rape victim.

  • I cannot wait for Hillary to kick his okole. He cannot win without the white color whites, Afriacna Americans, Asian Americans, Mormons, Muslim Americans and Hispanic Americans. He leads with uneducated White Men. Let’s see him get votes outside of the idots that voted for him in the primary.

      • Its a fact. I didn’t start the groups. That’s how its being catogorized. The fact is that the country is already going brown. The people who are running scared are the ones that see their lifestyle eroding.The white majority is quickly beingreplaced with Hispanic and Asian Americans. When Trump plays to the feras of some of these citizens, you get alot of hate and anger. When you want to keep your dominant status intact, you will try to eliminate your opposition.

        • The country is already going brown due to that darned Global Warming. Where’s “Fat Albert” Gore? People have to stay in the shade and use that sun screen.

  • WOW what polit-bureau drivel. Lets give a parallel for DownHILL+ supporters:
    1.Racist Violent Black Panthers support Hillary
    2.Racist, hate speech” kill all police” group “black lives matter” backs Hillary”
    3.Leftist/Socialist George Soros backs Hillary
    4.Bernie, betrayer of his young supporters who is socialist/communist back Hillary
    etc. etc.
    And lets find a negative pict of her drooling to go into the SA, too.

    • Mayor Silverthorne, meth for sex , Siddique Mateen, father of Omar endorses Clinton, George Chahoury, Lebanese businessman pays for play, more corruption to come.
      All her dirt attacks aren’t working. Polls at 4%. Democrats crossing over to Trump. Just can’t stand the stink with a straight face.
      It is time to give the White House a good whitewash.

  • I am not a white supremacist nor am I white. Far from it. I have no bones about allowing refugees into our country….AFTER the war with terrorism is a done deal and AFTER we take care of our own AMERICANS at home. News media spreading propaganda again to suit their own personal agendas.

  • Drip, drip, drip, Klastr.

    “Top Justice Department officials pushed for a public corruption probe of the Clinton Foundation earlier this year, but were overruled by their colleagues after a bank alerted the FBI to the “suspicious activity” of a foreign donor to the charity.”

    These little Clinton bombs are likely to keep going off as the election nears. Going to be fun waiting for Hillary’s October surprises.

  • And it continues: the stark and unambiguous repudiation of a Trump. What’s so interesting, is that it’s more and more pure Republicans not just leaving, but running from Trump.

    The letter comes as a number of Republican senators and high-profile GOP national security officials have come forward saying they cannot vote for Trump.

    “We believe that Donald Trump’s divisiveness, recklessness, incompetence, and record-breaking unpopularity risk turning this election into a Democratic landslide, and only the immediate shift of all available RNC resources to vulnerable Senate and House races will prevent the GOP from drowning with a Trump-emblazoned anchor around its neck,” states a draft of the letter obtained by POLITICO. “This should not be a difficult decision, as Donald Trump’s chances of being elected president are evaporating by the day.”

    Former Sen. Gordon Humphrey of New Hampshire and former Reps. Chris Shays of Connecticut, Tom Coleman of Missouri and Vin Weber of Minnesota are among the Republicans lending their name to the letter. Close to 20 of the co-signers are former RNC staffers, including Mindy Finn (former RNC chief digital strategist), Christine Iverson Gunderson (former RNC press secretary), Virginia Hume Onufer (former RNC deputy press secretary), Beth Miller (former RNC field communications division director), Heather Layman (former deputy press secretary), B. Jay Cooper (former RNC communications director under four chairmen) and Patrick Ruffini (former RNC ecampaign director).
    Republican Andrew Weinstein, a vocal anti-Trump Republican, is one of the operatives organizing the letter, which began circulating earlier this week and is expected to be sent next week. Weinstein served as director of media relations for the Dole/Kemp presidential campaign and was deputy press secretary to then-House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

    Weinstein said that the letter is coming from “People who want the party to protect its majorities in the Senate and the House. It’s not an endorsement of anybody.”
    A spokesman for the RNC did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    The letter ticks off a series of Trump actions that they believe have “alienated millions of voters of all parties,” including, attacking Gold Star families, positive comments about violent foreign leaders and encouraging Russia to find Clinton’s lost emails.

    “Those recent outrages have built on his campaign of anger and exclusion, during which he has mocked and offended millions of voters, including the disabled, women, Muslims, immigrants, and minorities,” the letter states. “He also has shown dangerous authoritarian tendencies, including threats to ban an entire religion from entering the country, order the military to break the law by torturing prisoners, kill the families of suspected terrorists, track law-abiding Muslim citizens in databases, and use executive orders to implement other illegal and unconstitutional measures.”

    Buahahahahahahahah. Crickets, crickets…….eternal awkward silence.

    • Holmes, your message is getting lost in all the unnecessary rambling verbiage. Try being a little more concise in your goofball comments so those who read it can do so while they are still young.

      • The full article is posted to provide the cite and the full context of the subject. Goofball comments,,huh.,these are articles from the following: The National Review, Poltico, The Atlantic Magazine, Wall Street Journal and the NYT. Hardly goofball publications.

        Now if the material is too deep and complex for you, let me now, and I’ll take the time to water it down a bit and provide the 7th grade version.

        • Honest, I thought you gave up on Crooked Hilliary. They’ve thrown everything and the kitchen sink at Trump but he’s still answering the bell. They call that perseverance. Any other Republican would have folded.
          Those Republicans who are having problems in their respective races means they weren’t doing the job. That’s why we have elections. Hillary hasn’t been doing the job is why Trump will spank that big fat okole.

    • All this time I thought you were above average in aptitude. Trump’s strategy is all or nothing. He’s got nothing to lose. He’s got to destroy Crooked Hillary and Obama or be destroyed. You get it?

    • Again just reaffirming that you are a racist. It’s about time to realize that you will be overwhelmed come November. The smart ones are leaving in large numbers and could give a sh-t about those who are in denial mode. It literally is every person for themselves.
