Hillary Clinton thought she was being “slick” when she gave Mark Cuban a front-row seat to Monday night’s debate.

Cuban, being the desperate and sad “media whore” that he is, taunted Trump.

Trump responded with an epic tweet.

Now, Gennifer has responded, and it probably has Hillary wishing she’d never started this mess.

Obama opens new African American Museum amid national racial strife…

Washington (AFP) – President Barack Obama hailed Saturday the opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture, a long-awaited institution dedicated to the many threads of black suffering and triumph in the United States.

The first black president of the United States cut the ribbon to inaugurate the striking 400,000-square-foot (37,000-square-meter) bronze-clad edifice before thousands of spectators gathered in the US capital to witness the historic opening, at a time of growing racial friction.

“Beyond the majesty of the building, what makes this occasion so special is the larger story it contains,” said Obama — just a few months before he leaves office — at the star-studded public ceremony that included the likes of Stevie Wonder and Oprah Winfrey.

“African-American history is not somehow separate from our larger American story. It’s not the underside of the American story,” he said. “It is central to the American story.”

The Smithsonian’s 19th addition to its sprawling museum and research complex is the first national museum tasked with documenting the uncomfortable truths of the country’s systematic oppression of black people, while also honoring the integral role of African-American culture.

“A clear-eyed view of history can make us uncomfortable,” Obama said. “It is precisely of that discomfort that we learn and grow and harness our collective power to make this nation more perfect. That’s the American story that this museum tells.”

Guests of honor on stage included four generations of a black family called the Bonners, led by 99-year-old great-grandmother Ruth, the daughter of a slave who went on to graduate from medical school.

After Obama declared the museum “open to the world,” it was she — stooped in stature but smiling broadly — who tugged on a rope to ring an antique bell from an historic black church, sealing the inauguration.

“I feel a sense of pride and a sense of humbleness because of all the sacrifices that so many people made to make this happen,” said audience member Karmello Colman, who trekked halfway across the country for the ceremony from Kansas City, Missouri.

“I feel honored because it is highlighting the accomplishments of my ancestors, who were probably slaves, and those of so many others.”

– Deteriorating race relations –

Elected in a wave of optimism in 2008, Obama pledged to unify, often repeating that he is not the president of black Americans but of all Americans.

But as his presidential mandate ends polls show that the overwhelming majority of Americans see US race relations as “generally bad.”

The recent fatal police shootings of black men in Tulsa, Oklahoma and Charlotte, North Carolina laid bare yet again the country’s racial disquiet.

Obama delivered his Saturday address amid these ever-heightening tensions, as national outrage grows over the spate of deaths of black men at the hands of police, prompting mass protests.

The president emphasized that a museum alone cannot solve the ills of a country still struggling to overcome a dark legacy of slavery and racial prejudice, but said it “provides context for the debate of our times.”

“Perhaps it can help a white visitor understand the pain and anger of demonstrators and places like Ferguson and Charlotte,” Obama said.

“It can also help black visitors appreciate the fact that not only is this younger generation carrying on traditions of the past, but within the white communities, across the nation, we see the sincerity of law enforcement officers and officials who, in fits and starts, are struggling to understand.”

“And are trying to do the right thing,” he said.

– ‘Hallowed ground’ –

The dramatic building — set in a prime location near the White House and the Washington Monument — features three inverted-pyramid tiers sheathed in bronze-painted filigree panels that house more than 34,000 objects, nearly half of them donated.

Obama noted that the building reaches 70 feet below ground — “its roots spreading far wider and deeper than any tree on this mall” — a crypt of historical galleries that wind from slavery to civil rights to Black Lives Matter, ascending into upper floors that include testaments to African-American cultural contributions.

“I’m so happy to see that so many people of color are coming out together just to celebrate themselves and one another,” said 50-year-old Derek Jones, who ventured from New York to attend Saturday’s celebration that included music, poetry and dancing.

“It’s amazing to get this opened by the end of Obama’s eight years,” Jones said, adding that he is “proud that he’s still president during the opening — it’s really profound.”

Ringing up to $540 million — half of which was raised from private donations — the museum shows “that this country born of change, this country born of revolution, this country of we the people, this country can get better,” Obama said.

“It is a monument, no less than the others on this mall, to the deep and abiding love for this country and the ideals upon which it is founded. For we, too, are American.”

Dead people voting…

Local officials in Colorado acknowledged “very serious” voter fraud after learning of votes cast in multiple elections under the named of recently-deceased residents.

A local media outlet uncovered the fraud by comparing voting history databases in the state with federal government death records. “Somebody was able to cast a vote that was not theirs to cast,” El Paso County Clerk and Recorder Chuck Broerman told CBS4 while discussing what he called a “very serious” pattern of people mailing in ballots on behalf of the dead.

It’s not clear how many fraudulent ballots have been submitted in recent years. CBS4 reported that it “found multiple cases” of dead people voting around the state, revelations that have provoked state criminal investigations.

“We do believe there were several instances of potential vote fraud that occurred,” said Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams. “It shows there is the potential for fraud.”

Colorado is a perennial battleground state in presidential battleground states. President Obama beat Republican nominee Mitt Romney by 51-46 in 2012. Clinton leads Trump by 2.5 points in the RealClearPolitics polling average, although there is wide variance in the three most recent surveys. One shows Trump leading by four, another shows them tied, and the third shows Clinton up nine points.

Williams plans to pursue criminal charges in the incidents uncovered by CBS4, such as the case of an El Paso County woman who died in 2009 but had ballots cast in her name in 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014. It’s difficult to prove that any particular person committed the fraud, however. “If our laws are not strong enough to prosecute this case, I don’t know what can be prosecuted,” Broerman told the Denver Post.

Voter fraud is a perpetual concern among Republican politicians, often scoffed at by Democrats. Some studies show that it is not a widespread problem, but certain high-profile incidences have kept the concern alive on the right.

It’s not clear how many fraudulent ballots have been submitted in recent years. CBS4 reported that it “found multiple cases” of dead people voting around the state, revelations that have provoked state criminal investigations. The Milwaukee (Wis.) Police Departmentreported in 2008 that there was an “illegal organized attempt to influence the outcome of [the 2004] election in the state of Wisconsin.” There were more votes counted than the number of voters who officially cast ballots, according to the report — about 5,000 more, in a presidential battleground decided by 12,000 votes.

El Paso County officials found 78 deceased people on their voter rolls after the CBS4 report was published, according to the Post, but they have previously removed 448 people from the registered voter list since 2012.

Williams suggested that the system would be more effective if state lawmakers give the secretary of State’s office more discretion in deciding that the name of someone who died matches the name of someone listed as an active voter.

“Our office is working to ensure all such incidents are prosecuted and that laws and rules are adjusted to make vote fraud as difficult as possible,” he told the Post. “[D]oes it make sense to broaden criteria to allow us to make a decision even if the name may be different?”

PENTAGON DEMANDS NO-FLY ZONE FOR RUSSIA OVER SYRIA

Obama administration continues to protect its ISIS proxy army

BY JAMIE WHITE

Pentagon officials have called for a ‘no-fly’ zone in Syria – except that it would only apply to Russian and Syrian aircraft.

*
Speaking to the Senate Armed Services Committee following the recent humanitarian atrocities by airstrikes that occurred in Syria over the past week, Defense Secretary Ash Carter and General Joseph Dunford have proposed that a no-fly zone be enforced, with the exception of American aircraft.

*
“I would not agree that coalition aircraft ought to be grounded,” Joint Chief of Staff Chairman Joseph Dunford stated. “I do agree that Syrian regime aircraft and Russian aircraft should be grounded.”

The two Pentagon officials were quick to blame Russia despite having no evidence to back the claim.

*
“I don’t have the facts,” said Dunford. “There’s no doubt in my mind that the Russians are responsible. It was either the Russians or the [Syrian] regime.”

*
Carter explained Dunford’s logic, saying that “the Russians are responsible for this strike whether they conducted it or not, because they took responsibility for the conduct of the Syrians by associating themselves with the Syrian regime.”

*
“To be clear, we are not cooperating with Russia,” Carter continued. “We do not align ourselves more broadly with their military actions because instead of singularly attacking ISIL – as they said they were going to do – they are primarily attacking the Syrian opposition.”

*
As we’ve previously reported, the Syrian opposition is virtually indistinguishable in ideology and methodology to ISIS and Al-Qaeda, which hasn’t stopped the U.S. and Gulf States from aiding them with over $100 million in arms and equipment.

*
The U.S. is more interested in unseating Syrian President Assad from power than defeating ISIS, as toppling Assad would allow them unfettered regional control while simultaneously removing a key ally of Russia, a country the globalists detest because of its strong nationalist and Christian values.

*
Secretary of State John Kerry had initially proposed the no-fly zone at the recent UN Security Council meeting after trading blame with Russia for who was responsible for the airstrike that targeted a humanitarian convoy that killed twenty people.

*
“It has to be achieved through a genuine and sustained reduction in violence, as well as unfettered humanitarian access that is unmistakable to everyone,” Kerry stated.
“Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but you’re not entitled to your own facts,” he said to Russian officials.

*
Kerry also told Russian officials that “everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but you’re not entitled to your own facts”.

*
“This attack has dealt a very heavy blow to our efforts to bring peace to Syria and it raises a profound doubt about whether Russia and the Assad regime can or will live up to the obligations that they agreed to in Geneva,” Kerry said.

*
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov rebuked Kerry’s proposal, stating that the U.S. needed to take action to prevent terrorist groups like ISIS from using political impasses like the failing ceasefire to their advantage.

*
The failure of the U.S. and Russia to reach a cease-fire agreement only showcases that their interests are in stark contrast to each other: the neocons want to fund terrorism and remove regimes, while Russia seeks only to preserve its national security and protect its regional ally.

GUNMAN ON RUN AFTER KILLING 5 AT MACY’S

Victims apparently random – similar to other attacks over past year

CBS SeattleSEPTEMBER 24, 2016

UPDATE 8:32 a.m. (PT): Authorities say they have recovered a rifle at the scene of the Cascade Mall shooting. The suspect is still at large, and a manhunt is underway. At this time, police do not have a name or positive identification on the suspect. Early descriptions based on witness accounts described the suspect as “Hispanic”; however, the race of the suspected gunman has not been confirmed by authorities.

Police say the suspect appeared to enter the mall without a weapon, and walked into a Macy’s approximately ten minutes later with a rifle. There, the suspect fired multiple times and killed four women at the scene (one man died of his injuries at Harborview Medical Center).

The victims’ ages range from “teenager to senior [citizen].”

At this time, authorities do not believe there is evidence to support that this is an act of terrorism.

Police ask that those with tips or information on the suspect call (360) 428-3211 or email scinv@co.skagit.wa.us

An earlier version of this story is below.

SEATTLE (CBS/AP) — Police searched Saturday for a gunman authorities said opened fire in the makeup department of a Macy’s store at a mall north of Seattle, killing five people before fleeing toward an interstate on foot.

People fled, customers hid in dressing rooms and employees locked the doors of nearby stores after gunshots rang out just after 7 p.m. Friday at the Cascade Mall. A helicopter, search teams and K-9 units scoured the area for a rifle-carrying man.

“We are still actively looking for the shooter,” Washington State Patrol spokesman Sgt. Mark Francis said at a news conference. “Stay indoors, stay secure.”

Francis said police were seeking a Hispanic man wearing black and armed with a “hunting-type” rifle last seen walking toward Interstate 5.

Authorities say the motive was unknown for the shooting about 60 miles (97 kilometers) north of Seattle.

The FBI was assisting local authorities as dozens of police officers searched for the suspect. The FBI’s Seattle office said on Twitter that it “has no information to suggest additional attacks planned” in Washington state but did not elaborate.

A male victim died early Saturday at a Seattle hospital; authorities had previously announced the deaths of four females. No other details about the victims were provided, including their ages.

Tari Caswell told the Skagit Valley Herald she was in the Macy’s women’s dressing room when she heard “what sounded like four balloons popping.”

“Then I heard seven or eight more, and I just stayed quiet in the dressing room because it just didn’t feel right. And it got very quiet. And then I heard a lady yelling for help, and a man came and got me and another lady, and we ran out of the store,” Caswell told the newspaper.

Stephanie Bose, an assistant general manager at Johnny Carino’s Italian restaurant near the Macy’s store at the mall, said she immediately locked the doors to the restaurant after hearing about the shooting from an employee’s boyfriend.

“He was trying to go to the mall and people were screaming,” she told The Associated Press. “It was frantic.”

She said he could see police at the doors with assault rifles and said they were no longer guarding the doors as of 9:30 p.m.

Francis said at about 8:30 p.m. that the mall had been evacuated and emergency medical personnel were cleared to enter. Francis said authorities were still doing a “final clear” of the 434,000-square-foot (40,319-square-meter) mall late Friday night. He said 11 search teams and two K9 units were involved.

The parking lot was closed and emergency management officials told people they would be able to retrieve vehicles Saturday, though the mall said it would be closed for the day.

Gov. Jay Inslee said tragedy had struck the state.

“We urge residents to heed all safety and detour warnings. Stay close to your friends and loved ones as we await more information and, hopefully, news of the suspect’s capture,” Inslee said in a statement.

The Cascade Mall is an enclosed shopping mall that opened in 1990, according to the mall’s website. It features J.C. Penney, TJ Maxx, and Macy’s stores, among other stores, restaurants and a movie theater.

On Sept. 17 a man stabbed 10 people at a Minnesota mall before being shot and killed by an off-duty police officer. Authorities say Dahir Ahmed Adan, 20, stabbed the people at the Crossroads Center in St. Cloud, Minnesota.
