Because her lips were moving: Why Hillary lost the debate
There was a popular saying among intelligence officers during the Iran-contra affair: How do you know an Iranian is lying? Because his lips are moving.
It was applied to Manucher Ghorbanifar, the mercurial intermediary; and to his boss, the so-called "moderate" Parliament speaker, Akbar Hashemi-Rafsanjani, who told Ghorbanifar he wanted to make a deal with America all the while he helped organize hostage-takings and terrorist attacks against Americans.
Hillary Clinton's debate performance reminded me of that saying, because every time she opened her mouth to lay out her opposition research on Donald Trump, she lied or misrepresented the truth to such an extent it became unrecognizable.
American voters aren't quite as stupid as Clinton (or the "insiders" at Politico) think, and as a slew of after-event polls showed, they weren't falling for her lies about Trump, her phony statistics, or her breath-taking claim that life in America's inner-cities has improved over the past twenty years. Or that her plan to raise taxes on the middle class and businesses will help the middle class and create jobs.
They recognized her slick talking points for what they were: carefully crafted attacks, scripted by pollsters and political consultants, aimed at appealing to specific demographics she felt were "must win" for her flailing and divisive campaign.
Need to increase her share of the "women's vote?" Why, call Trump a sexist because of his comments about Rosie O'Donnell's pig-like appearance and behavior. (As Trump acknowledged, most people who have watched Rosie O'Donnell agree with him).
Need to increase her share of the "black vote?" Why, call out Trump for inventing "the racist lie that our first black president was not an American."
Trump garnered nation-wide attention for being the only Republican who persisted in demanding that Obama release his long-form birth certificate to put the "birther racist lie" (Clinton's term) to rest. Unlike Clinton � who launched the "birther" movement during her 2008 primary campaign against Obama then conveniently forgot about it after Obama beat her � Trump succeeded.
Need to get the "union vote?" Why, claim without batting an eyelash that you believe in "smart, fair trade deals" when Clinton called the Trans Pacific Partnerships the "gold standard of trade deals" and has never called for modifying NAFTA which her husband signed into law, to correct its enormous flaws. (Even the normally left-wing PolitiFact concluded in its 'Truth-o-meter:' "Trump is right, Clinton flip-flopped on TPP.")
Trump is a boxer, not a politician. And by jabbing at his opponents, countering their every blow, he put away sixteen skilled politicians in the GOP primary. And he put away Clinton last night.
Clinton clearly thought she could deflect his jabs and land a knock-out punch near the end, by countering Trump's critique of the failed Iran deal she helped to craft as secretary of state.
In a set piece clearly written ahead of time by consultants, she pretended to address America's friends and allies abroad as a statesman, speaking on behalf of her country. "I know this [i.e. Trump's] campaign has caused some questioning and some worries with many leaders around the globe. I know. I've talked with a number of them. But I want to, on behalf of myself and I think on the behalf of a majority of the American people, say that our word is good."
Sounds great. I'm sure her consultants told her (and keep telling her now), it was a "presidential" moment.
But once again, Trump the boxer hit back. "All of the things she is talking about could have been taken care of in the last ten years when she had power. And if she comes to power, she won't take care of them."
And again: "Hillary, she's got experience, but it's bad experience ... This country can't afford to have another four years of this bad experience."
So, programmatic politician, versus the boxer. The emperor in her birthday suit of lies, versus the boy in the street proclaiming her nakedness.
Anyone who was expecting Donald Trump to lay out programs and statistics and proposals on Monday night understands nothing about this candidate, or about the movement he incarnates.
That would have been to behave as a traditional politician � like Clinton. Instead, Trump remained Trump and spoke the truth. And because he remains a truth-teller, he will win big in November. The American people are fed up with

Hillary Supporter Mark Cuban Admits He's Bigoted: Is Afraid of 'Black Kids In Hoodies'
Mark Cuban, a vocal Hillary Clinton supporter, admits he's "bigoted" and "prejudiced" and is so afraid of black teens that he crosses the street whenever he sees "a black kid in a hoodie."
Hillary, the self-proclaimed champion of African-American and minority voters, has not disavowed Mark Cuban's endorsement or his racist remarks.
Cuban made the "black kid in hoodies" comment in 2014 while denouncing the racism of Donald Sterling, the former owner of the Los Angeles Clippers basketball team.
"I know I'm prejudiced, and I know I'm bigoted in a lot of different ways," said Mark (see video).
The 6-foot-3 Cuban continued: "If I see a black kid in a hoodie on my side of the street, I'll move to the other side of the street."

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump picked up the endorsement on Monday of the union representing 5,000 federal immigration officers, a boost of support for his immigration policy ahead of his first debate with Democrat Hillary Clinton.
Trump has laid out a hardline position on illegal immigration, proposing to build a wall along the U.S. southern border with Mexico and take other steps to crack down on the flow of undocumented people crossing into the United States.
With immigration likely to be discussed at the debate, the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council, a union representing 5,000 federal immigration officers and law enforcement support staff, announced it would support Trump, in what was described as its first endorsement of a candidate for elected office.
The union's president, Chris Crane, outlined in a statement why his group is backing Trump, saying his union members are "the last line of defense for American communities" and that his members "are prevented from enforcing the most basic immigration laws."

EXCLUSIVE: FBI Used Agents As Pawns To Insulate Hillary, Aides & Clinton Foundation From Prosecutions ******* September 25, 2016 * by admin * True Pundit
In mid-summer a wave of panic and despair began to wash over key rank-and-file FBI agents who were doggedly working the Hillary Clinton investigations. Agents reluctantly pondered a potential, brutal reality that was creeping into the fabric of the high-profile case. What if their collective work wasn't meant to bring this case to a grand jury for indictments and justice? What if they themselves, FBI agents sworn to uphold the law, were being used as intelligence pawns by superiors and higher powers to actually shield Clinton and her inner circle from ever seeing a pair of handcuffs and a jail cell?
"I got a pit in my stomach," a FBI insider said. "That empty, sinking feeling you get in your gut. I thought we may have unknowingly been parties to this entire mess. It's a blow to the ego. We're supposed to see these things coming."
We say Clinton investigations, plural, because there were really two parallel inquiries that unfolded during the year-long FBI probe. There was the public email and home server investigation but agents were also building a pay-for-play criminal case involving Clinton, the Clinton Foundation and her husband, former President Bill Clinton. And that case was growing serious wings.
The FBI case agents and support personnel are forbidden to "go public" or comment on the record to share their frustrations and dismay because they each signed an unprecedented confidentiality agreement prior to signing onto work the Clinton investigation. Violating that agreement would likely cost them their careers and pensions. Regardless, True Pundit conducted interviews with FBI assets and support personnel who collectively painted a dark insiders' portrait of the Clinton criminal probe which was commissioned to determine how Clinton and her aides handled, maintained, stored and ultimately botched some of the most sensitive information ever breached in the country's 240-year history. True Pundit's interviews and intelligence gathering on the Clinton investigation found:
Allegations of pay-for-play involving the Clinton Foundation were not properly vetted, ultimately white washed
*FBI agents were blocked from serving search warrants to retrieve key evidence
*Attempts to secure Clinton's medical records to confirm her head injury were sabotaged by FBI Director James Comey
* FBI agents were not allowed to interrogate witnesses and targets without warning
* Clinton and aides were provided special VIP accommodations during interviews
* FBI suspended standard investigative tactics employed in other probes
* FBI agents efforts were often blocked, suppressed by FBI, DOJ brass
* Agents lost faith that their superiors and DOJ wanted to see the case reach a grand jury

Computer Specialist Who Deleted Clinton Emails May Have Asked Reddit for Tips
By Steven Nelson | Staff Writer Sept. 19, 2016, at 3:11 p.m.
An army of reddit users believes it has found evidence that former Hillary Clinton computer specialist Paul Combetta solicited free advice regarding Clinton's private email server from users of the popular web forum.
A collaborative investigation showed a reddit user with the username stonetear requested help in relation to retaining and purging email messages after 60 days, and requested advice on how to remove a "VERY VIP" individual's email address from archived content.
The requests match neatly with publicly known dates related to Clinton's use of a private email server while secretary of state.
Stonetear has deleted the posts, but before doing so, the pages were archived by other individuals.
The evidence connecting Combetta to the account is circumstantial, but also voluminous. The inactive website combetta.com is registered to the email address email@example.com, a search of domain registration information using the service whois.com indicates. An account for a person named Paul Combetta on the web bazaar Etsy also has the username stonetear.
And, perhaps most <snip>ingly, there are the dates....
September 19, 2016, 3:14 pmHillary's lies...
Hillary Clinton tells us she is recovering from a mild case of pneumonia, but less than half of American voters believe her belated explanation of why she appeared to faint leaving a 9/11 commemoration. If she wants to understand why, she can find the answer in a children's poem.
In his 1907 classic, "Matilda Who told Lies, and was Burned to Death," Hilaire Belloc tells the story of a young girl who "told such Dreadful Lies, It made one Gasp and Stretch one's Eyes." One day Matilda calls in a false alarm to London's fire brigade, and as punishment is left home alone while her aunt goes to the theater:

A noticeably drowsy and frail-looking Hillary Clinton addressed the media aboard her campaign plane Saturday evening, and it raises new questions about whether she'd be prepared for that "3 a.m. call" as she claimed in 2008.
Clinton � low energy, with her voice flatter than normal and eyes half open � referred to the two explosion incidents in New Jersey and New York on Saturday as "bombings" � then proceeded to imply criticism of Donald Trump for saying the acts involved a "bomb."
