**********

To Vietnam Veteran re Capt. Kahn. Even though Trump blames his death on Obama and Clinton, Kahn died in 2004, four years before Obama was elected. It's unfortunate that Trump's lies take hold with so little checking.

**********

Bernie sanders run a independent campaign would split the dem vote jst like R. Nader did and Trump would win. Bernie knew that. Really that's politics 101.

**********

It appears that Sen. Browne has again taken action to benefit the city of Allentown and his wife's employer. Is there any hope that the people of the neglected suburbs will vote the bastard out?

**********

The 412 widening project is thankfully within range of completion. However, the timing of the lights at Lynn Ave and Emery Street are awful. Way too frequent and lengthy greens for the traffic coming onto 412. Leads to big backups on northbound 412. Sounds about right since I've never seen a Penndot vehicle on that project. And when are they ( city?) doing to do something with the Lynn Ave bridge? Just let it sit there and rot?

It's become apparent that Express Times/ LVL has upgraded the security of the LVL site after receiving dirt cheap rent from the Savior of Easton, known as Mulligan, the heir to the throne after the Switlyk rennaissance. Numerous attempts with different ISP's, names, email addresses have banished me forever from the LVL kingdom. However, I still abhor Mezzacrazy, manslab, Panto, and people who are still stuckineaston. PS- Ed From Jersey is a homo, ask Roger!

Blogger's Reply: I don't know Ed or Roger, nor do I give a shit about their sexual orientation.

You only get better, you offered sports and now the comics. Keep up the good work.

G. John Bryant, Jr.

Blogger's Reply: John, I am sure many disagree.

**********

The Columbus statute in Easton should come down. Any thoughts?

Blogger's Reply: He was a monster who deserves no respect. Read The People's History of the United States or this HuffPo article. Unfortunately, many Italian Americans will misinterpret an attack at Columbus as an attack on their ethnicity. I would much rather honor the Italian American immigrant than Columbus.

**********

Every single day Hillary and her minions in the media find new krap to throw at trump to distract the voters from Hillary

But then, what else can they do? Shay can't tout any of her accomplishments, and in her "economic speech" she recycled Obama's promises from 2008 as her "economic plan"

Hint Democrats, not everyone is road-worker. We don't all lift shovels doing manual labor and pour concrete.

"He was a monster who deserves no respect."

Agree completely re: Columbus. You could also be describing Woodrow Wilson, Democratic Party icon, namesake of a local borough, and guy so resentful of the Civil War's outcome he re-segregated the military and federal government. When his era's black leaders complained, he dismissed them and told them they should have voted more wisely. In a time when confederate flag wavers are rightly disdained and marginalized, it's remarkable that little is said of the historical stain that is Wilson's legacy.

Did you read the article in the Express regarding the college professor that has open charges regarding dealing heroin and her alledged 3rd dui offense. I must say I am extremely disappointed in President Judge Baratta. Last week the allegations that he pushed the Court Administrator out of her position and this week the stupid comments and decision regarding a bail revocation hearing. This heroin allegedly sold by the college professor already got someone killed. Now she has two positive drug tests while out on bail. His logic and remedy for not revoking her bail is absurd. He has had a bad few weeks. I hope this isn't a tread. Am I making this bigger than it is?

Sen. Browne will continue to get away with it until the rest of the Lehigh Valley legislative delegation steps to the plate and protects their districts. I understand that numerous municipalities have passed legislation condemning the hotel tax grab and call for the legislature to remove that section of the recently enacted fiscal code. Browne needs to be stopped!

Hillary Clinton made her tax return public yesterday, in an attempt to bait Donald Trump into turning over his. They showed that she made over $10 million dollars, primarily for giving speeches. From that $10 million, she gave over $1 million to charity.

Now that's quite a bit of money for someone running for President to receive for speeches. It kind of looks like she was taking payoffs for future considerations if she wins the election.

Also, the $1 million she gave to charity, went to the Clinton Foundation. Which is like giving charitable contributions to herself. The Clinton Foundation, by the way, is on a charitable watch list, with very little money being given to people in need. Most of the money it collects either goes to the Clintons or her friends.

Bernie O'Hare said...

She made her tax returns available bc that is what presidential candidates have done since 1976, not to bait anyone. Since Trump has refused to supply his at all, I see no reason why anyone should address your unfair and obviously partisan concerns.

Anonymous said...

Tax returns of that size and scope have very little meaning to mere mortals reading this blog. Clinton and Trump don't sit down at the kitchen table and prepare any of this. They add a signature.

Either way, each candidate is ultimately responsible for his/her return. That's the law. I don't put much into these disclosures. We would need to sit hours and hours with a CPA at our side to really evaluate what they truly represent.

There is no comparison between Columbus, who really was a monster, and Wilson, who was a bigot. Your attempt to do so diminishes the severity of what Columbus did.

That's why it would be good if an Italian American organization led the effort to take down the statue. This is not really a matter of opinion, as Panto stated. It is fact. Columbus very clearly engaged in genocide, slavery, monstrous mistreatment and torture. The statue needs to come down, just like Confederate flags.

Donald Trump was targeted for a tax audit by Lois Leherner's/Barack Obama's IRS. He was advised by his attorneys not to release his tax returns.

If Trump's taxes are being audited, why aren't Hillary Clintons ?

"After Newsweek asked for a copy of the IRS audit letter sent to Trump, a campaign spokesperson last week pointed to the campaign’s website and the letter that was released by Trump’s attorneys at the Washington, D.C., firm Morgan, Lewis & Bockius. A follow-up query to the campaign asking for a copy of the actual IRS audit letter itself has gone unanswered. Newsweek offered to accept a redaction of any personal information that might be in the letter, such as a Social Security number, although generally audit letters contain just a name and address, which in Trump’s case is well known to be Trump Tower.

In lieu of producing the audit letter, there’s really no proof that Trump is being audited"

The Pennsylvania Attorney General's Charitable Trusts and Organizations Section said it had no record of such a charity. When asked again, Shoebat said it was registered under a different name, but that he was not aware of the Foundation's registered name, nor any other details, which were known only to his manager"

Too little people too little equipment working on that job everyday for years. The 412 project should have been done years ago. I bet if someone would have denied a certificate of occupancy to the casino until the road work was done... I bet a million bucks the project would have been completed.

"The correct number for the Clinton Foundation alone--was just over 80 percent in 2013"

"To offer some context, spending 88 percent of expenses on charitable programs, as the Clinton foundation says it does, would actually be pretty good by industry standards. Parsons said the average reported across all organizations in the National Center for Charitable Statistics is 81 percent -- equal to the Clinton Foundation’s rate on its own -- and the Better Business Bureau’s Wise Giving Alliance suggests a minimum of 65 percent. "The foundation exceeds that," Parsons said."

Don't want to stir up a hornets nest but truth be told, just about everyone of any importance and every nation, tribe, horde... were "monsters" in the 15th century. Think the natives Columbus wiped out were any less monstrous to each other than he was to them? Think again and crack a history book to read the truth about slaughter, ritual torture,murder, cannibalism, and genocide that was practiced by the Caraibes(the ruling tribe Columbus encountered). Think the Europeans treated each other any better than they treated the "natives" they found in their various travels? Again; think again and bother to educate yourself on the European man's inhumanity to his fellow European man.
Terror as a weapon of conquest was routine throughout history. Killing innocents was actually viewed as a "humane way" to shorten conflicts". If you want to get a real understanding of how our ancestors thought and acted read Bernard Bailyn's "The Barbarous Years" . It is depressing but eye opening. You will begin to see people like Columbus as men of their times,monsters yes, but you will be wise enough to understand; aren't we all.

It's the law that foreign nationals and governments are prohibited from making any donations related to our elections. Yet, the Clinton Foundation has accepted hundreds of millions of dollars in donations from foreign sources. Including foreign governments. These foreign sources make up a third of those who have given more than $1 Million dollars to the Clinton foundation since 2001. The Clinton Foundation has accepted tens of millions from a dozen foreign governments around the world.

However, the Clinton Foundation failed to disclose donations from a number of countries until 2015 when they were pressed on the issue. And in one instance, a $500,000 donation from Algeria in 2010 wasn't properly disclosed to Hillary Clinton's State Department. Even the foundation was forced to admit it should have sought approval for the donation from Algeria. All of this creates great concern of pay-to-play. Something which Mrs. Clinton was harshly criticized about.

You know, the Clintons are really quite something. And there is every indication in all they've done that they have contrived and attempted to hide that they constructed through their foundation an organization designed for subterfuge.

It's clear that Hillary Clinton acted to circumvent our laws. And in doing so, she has disqualified herself from high office. This is the belief among those of us who still care about values as integrity, honesty and honor. These are the values that my husband and I teach our fifteen-year-old daughter.

Jamie Kelton, When Trump discloses his tax returns and subjects himself to the same scrutiny you have imposed on Hillary, your rants will then be worth consideration.

Hillary Clinton is simply a lousy choice to be President. She has built an entire career on having married a guy who went on the be President of the United States. As Barack Obama would say "You didn't build that!"

Hillary has an extensive list of questionable dealings, her health appears to be declining rapidly. She is a frequent liar, and by many accounts, a vindictive, nasty person to be around.

If our state run news media would challenge Hillary with the same vigor they call into question every aspect of Trump's private life, she would not be her party's nominee right now. She's protected, kept under wraps. Why? Maybe she know too much about the dark operations of this government.

Loyal, hardcore Democrats are not so particular when choosing their politicians. If there's a (D) after your name, you're good to go. They are also masters of psychological projection.

Trump will need some help over the coming 2 months, if he is to penetrate "politics as usual." Someone will have do it SOON, or America is going down hard.

A black convict with a criminal record a mile long was shot in Milwaukee last night after the police ordered him to drop his gun. He didn't and was killed. Then the blacks in Milwaukee rioted, burning and looting several businesses.

Case closed, done deal, reason enough right there for the police to defend themselves. What are they supposed to do? Wait for the perp to fire first? These incidents have common themes, someone resisting the police and almost always breaking the law. The goal is to deter anyone from joining the police force and move to a national law enforcement.

There is a difference between making statements, that turn out to be untrue because of being misinformed, and bold faced lies to cover up lawbreaking, and everyone including the Hillary supporters know the difference. I don't know that Donald Trump has been accused of any lawbreaking. Then we always hear how we need to have a conversation about race, about immigration etc. and if the conversation is not politically correct or the view of the Marxist, socialist elite,then the labels of racist, xenophobic, islamophobic, sexist are brought out to silence differing views. This is never more evident than on college campuses, where the Marxist ideology of the 60's has become the established view. And anything that opposes it is not to be tolerated. Parents should be giving all universities a litmus test of allowing opposing views or don't spend your money there. It is also about time to list the sponsors of the DNC press and those that oppose their bias should refuse to buy their products or services. This is the quickest way to get their attention.

Trump has said I'm not running against crooked Hillary, I'm running against the crooked media. He has the knack for focusing on and stating the issue.

For example, on illegal immigration he said the obvious which is to build a wall on the southern border and to enforce our immigration laws.

On terrorism, he said we have to temporarily suspend immigration from Muslim countries.

On the economy, he said we have to cut tax rates and reduce the regulations.

On “free trade,” he said we have to review each trade deal so that American made goods can compete in our country with foreign made goods.

On Hillary Clinton he summed up her career and character as “Crooked Hillary.” What else is there to say about Hillary once you say “Crooked Hillary.”

Now he said that he is running against the media which he termed the Crooked Media. Again, what else is there to say?

"Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on,"

then
"“It’s a temporary ban. It hasn’t been called for yet, nobody’s done it,” he says on Fox News Radio. “This is just a suggestion until we find out what’s going on.”


then
"“I called for a ban after San Bernardino and was met with great scorn and anger."

then
"At one point Trump tells reporters that he’d be fine with Muslims from Scotland or the U.K. coming to the U.S."
then
"Trump later takes to Twitter to offer a clarification: “We must suspend immigration from regions linked with terrorism until a proven vetting method is in place.”

so somehow a total ban of all Muslims becomes suspend from regions linked to terrorism.

3.47, So you point is that we need to have unlimited immigration. without vetting or an ability of the country to assimilate people in an orderly way.

10.22 absolutely, Chick-fil-lay has been doing quite well by the way, lets get it on, since the courts deny the right of every voter referendum in the country, that may be the best approach. Lets have every business and corporation let it be known their position, what they support, and lets see how the free market will work. I bet it would not be long till we see how much courage they have.

If that's the poster's point, we only need to look at the destruction open border policies have done in Europe. What a mess those counties find themselves in by trying to create a globalist form of government in their region of the planet.

It is very interesting , how everyone wants to criticize Trumps positions. but is unwilling to state their position, and put their name to it. Put a sandwich sign and walk around and state that you want unlimited, unrestricted immigration, That Islamic civilization is equal to or superior to Christian Civilization. It is interesting how the left doesn't really have any ideas that are not part of the failed experiments of the past. Whether it is Communism , socialism, and even 12th century Islamism

All, the different takes on trumps position are the same, he has not changed his position. The language may be a little different but the position is the same. Of course it is interesting how democratic talking points are always identical, when voiced by NBC,CBS,ABC, and all the surrogates, even those on this sight. Not an original idea among them.

It is sad to read the qwords of the Trump fanatics on this blog. They are like Manson family members. Their hatred of Clinton is so intense they would throw the country into the fires of Hell rather than logically examine the man they champion as their savior. Maybe a better example is Jim Jones.

The Clintons like other former Presidential families have made lots of money out of office. I don't condone it but is it illegal? That said many wish she was not the nominee. Many,many Democrats would have preferred the Clintons just retiring to their private lives. However as most of you say there is only a choice between two people to be President.
Trump would only have to act sane to have won a huge victory, instead the man is acting like a lunatic. The Press has to do nothing but repeat his words. Rather than focus on Clintons specific issues he is unable to focus on much of anything but his comedy routine.

Your paranoia and now the suggestion that if he losses the election it was the result of a conspiracy makes the point that Trump and sadly many of his followers are not corrupt but crazy and that is more scary than corrupt.

Democrats have routinely voted for many Republicans, if they didn't the R's would never get elected, It is also true Republicans will never vote for a Democrat so if you want to scream about lemmings you should note that. We have had crooked politicians for decades we should do better. However, unstable megalomaniacs with rabid followers that threaten civil war if he loses and are spurred on by right wing extremist blogs, websites, radio and TV are a major concern to or Republic.

You need to sober up and take a reality check on yourselves. Trump has turned out to be a major disappointment. Your own fellow Republican presidential candidates warned you of this in the primary but you are so driven by blind hatred, you have left reason at the door.

or walk around with a sign claiming Mexicans are rapists or a slightly longer message

Let's look at the historical facts and drop the hyperbole.

In 2002, Senator Clinton voted for giving President Bush the authority for use of Military force in Iraq

In 2011, Secretary of State Clinton facilitated the sale of new F-15S fighter/bombers to Saudi Arabia, which were subsequently used to bomb civilian targets in South Yemen.

In 2011, Secretary of State along with President Obama sided with Libyan rebels against Muammar Gaddafi in the Libyan Civil war, and she subsequently bragged about tilling him. De-stabilizing the country, and it becoming a failed, terrorist state.

in 2012, against the advise of the Central Intelligence Agency, Secretary of State Clinton pushed for a policy of arming and equipping Syrian "rebels", using stocks of weapons in Libya. However, the weapons flowed to jihadists, later known as ISIS. These same weapons were used to attack our consulate in Benghazi, killing our ambassador along with several members of his staff. Those embassy staff members were possibly operatives of the CIA who were directing the flow of the weapons that Secretary of State Clinton had authorized transfer from Libya to Syria.

In 2016, Presidential Candidate Clinton blames Donald Trump for ISIS recruitment.

Although mrs Clinton has health problems, possibly blood clots in the brain which she takes Coumadin (Warfrin) for, something seems very odd about her last statement, given her past actions.

Bernie O'Hare said...

6:06, What you've posted makes her look tougher than I thought, so you aren't exactly helping your cause. Also, your needless shot about her health does nothing but make normal people more inclined to support her.

@6:06 "Although mrs Clinton has health problems, possibly blood clots in the brain which she takes Coumadin (Warfrin) for,"

This is something that is never in the media. Donald Trump has released his physical and for a 70-year old man, he is in excellent physical condition. He makes several campaign appearances each day, is on television constantly being interviewed, and is a very active campaigner.

Hillary Clinton makes a campaign appearance every few days, usually 2 or 3 days between teach other. Bill Clinton appears for her a lot on the campaign trail. Is this because her health is not very well? She has not released any medical records and now we see photos of her in the media of her needing help climbing steps.

Is Hillary Clinton physically fit and healthy enough for the job as President ? This is important, I remember John McCzin's health records being a campaign issue in 2002. Why are Hillary Clinton's not also scrutinized like McCain's were ?

The3 "health" issue is the latest straw to be grasped by the huge ring wing conspiracy(just kidding). Any candidate can have his doctor put out a careful report telling you the candidate is in better shape than an 18 year old marathon runner, so what? It means nothing since It may be bullshit. Is it a lie if a physician down plays or doesn't write everything down?

The entire idea of health is kind of strange since many pol's including FDR, Ike and JFK to name but a few have had health problems. People suspect Reagan already was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in his second term. So what?

They all did a pretty good job. I am less concerned with physical attributes as I am with someone's "demonstrated" mental health. We all are emotional creatures and we all can be afflicted with various emotional conditions at different times Hell, Lincoln suffered from depression but he still did quite a job.

So the "warfarin" offense is the latest and again desperate tactic by the whacko wingnuts. Back to the hate media with all of you.

What happens if Clinton wins? Do we have another statement by Mitch McConnell telling us the main responsibility for Republicans is to make sure she doesn't get a second term. Or will the house waste more millions and try to get articles of impeachment for the next four years. I think the republican establishment needs to consider the backlash by stable citizens if this nonsense starts all over again.

7:46, not really many Democrats were thinking of voting for McCain due to his vast more experience than Obama. However, they were more concerned with the dingbat he picked as his VP. As an elderly man with some health issue the thought of that loony near the button sealed the deal for Obama.

Then they land and encounter a lot of armed warriors, they need food, rest , water, they are probably as scared as the natives, but they know they will need to gain respect or they are going to be slaughtered, so they do what they have to do to survive, and now we have a bunch of arm chair historians judging them by a standard that did not exist then and may not even exist now, except in the minds of the out of touch and out of reality. If they were slaughtered who would have written about it. What a bunch of feeble hypocrites.

$40 million is nothing the Clintons make that in a couple of speeches. don't worry about the money , it will all be defaulted on sooner or later.

There is no question that the health of the candidates should be an important campaign issue. It is obvious that Hillary has trouble keeping a rigorous schedule and Trump thrives on it.

Clinton disappears for hours and days and Trump isn't out of the public eye for more than a few hours at most. Who best to respond to the 3 AM emergency call, a marginally healthy person that takes many medications for day to day living? Or a robust non-drinker who functions on limited sleep?

8:02, I don't honor sadists who was viewed with revulsion by his contemporaries. He enslaved the Arawaks, had the females sold into sexual slaver, cut off the hands of slaves who did not do their work, cut off noses and ears, refused to baptize them and give them the protection of the church.His men, who were not men as you claim but cowards pulled from the prisons, tested their blades on children.In the end,there were no Arawaks left torture. He wiped out an entire people. He was a monster. He was no man and you are in no position to speak about real men bc you don't even sign your name.

Just as the Confederate flag is an insult to human rights, so is that Columbus statue. But I would want this move to come from Easton's Italian American community.

You people are unreal. The photo is from February, when Clinton campaigned in South Carolina,and yes, it can get cold there, too. Rather than condemn the dishonesty of using that February photo now, you idiotically try to cast doubt on the weather. People like you are simply not rational.

Where is the 'dishonesty' in the photo? They're taken by Getty images, a well-known and respected photographic service.

They show Hillary Clinton struggling to make it up a short fight of outside stairs, either as a result of her fragile body or perhaps because her well-documented brain injuries make it harder for her to transport herself through daily life activities.

What other disabilities does she have ?
