Hillary Clinton To Hold At Least Two Fundraisers In Hamptons In August

The right is focusing on Hillary because we hold these truths to be self evident. She's incompetent and has accomplished nothing. Yes, what Huckabee said was perfectly okay. Nothing he said was personalized toward any individual. It was a manner of communicating the seriousness of the deal with Iran (who by the way has sworn to destroy its enemies - "kill all Jews and annihilate Israel" to quote the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei).

"...everything you say is false has the statistics to back it up."

Funny thing about statistics...

“There are three types of lies -- lies, damn lies, and statistics.”
― Benjamin Disraeli" Aug 25, 15 9:40 PM

That's a rather regressive reaction for a Progressive. Mark Levin is dead on.

The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve notes the declining validity of M data - "Over recent decades, however, the relationships between various measures of the money supply and variables such as GDP growth and inflation in the United States have been quite unstable. As a result, the importance of the money supply as a guide for the conduct of monetary policy in the United States has diminished over time." " Aug 27, 15 6:15 PM

Well Z, even by your very own acknowledgement the Federal Reserve itself is discounting the value of the monetary supply in establishing policy. So this pretty much destroys your original attack on Mark Levin for his alleged ignoring of monetary policy in his book - it's a zero sub gain.

If the same Federal Reserve policy has existed under EVERY administration since 1990 as you say, that would then in FACT give credence to Mark Levin and his conclusions for it takes the Fed policy off the table from an analysis standpoint." Aug 27, 15 7:39 PM

"The original post was a royal condemnation of the president, Democrats, and anyone considered a RINO"

But yet your original response focused on the seemingly unrelated topic of the M2. I'm shocked! " Aug 28, 15 9:45 AM

Now it makes sense Mr. Z. You haven’t read “Plunder and Deceit.”

I don't disagree with what Joe aptly points out. But it would seem on the topic of the monetary supply, the Federal Reserve disagrees with your take on its relevance in determining policy which once again, was your singular complaint and criticism of Mark Levin’s “Plunder and Deceit” and the fact remains, "Plunder and Deceit" by design takes a decidedly different focus than the discussion of monetary supply – that being society being devoured by an ever encroaching federal government which you seem to support.

"You may want to try"... I've actually read several of the books you recommend and have no general disagreement. I would however recommend that you read “Plunder and Deceit” for you may connect the dots on the abuse and failure of government and its complicit role not only in society but in likely the books you recommend. Until one makes this connection that government has the ultimate accountability and responsibility history will inevitably repeat itself, and as someone once noted: “You're being used and you're not even smart enough to know it.”

What I personally find most fascinating about those who assertively attempt to impart their “wisdom" on others is their complete inability to read people and the false conclusions they make as a result of topic drift.
" Aug 28, 15 11:53 PM

Z, you appear to not be able to see the forest for the trees by embracing and yet dismissing the so-called cherry picked statistics (see earlier reference to Benjamin Disraeli and his quote "There are three types of lies -- lies, damn lies, and statistics.”)

Levin's very accurate conclusion are a critique of the damage done by the Washington establishment and it's strangle hold it places on future generations. This is undeniable except by those with their own ideologue agenda - to include K. Scott Schaeffer (clearly evident by his other writings).

If Obama had gone to Paris, the Republicans would have attacked him for going, because foreign leaders didn't do a march for us after 9/11. Or they would have attacked him for putting on a show at the taxpayers' expense, when there are other problems to be resolved. Or they would have attacked him for going to Paris as part of his plan for world domination, like Hitler did!" Aug 30, 15 12:30 PM

You should very well know that muckraking is nothing new to politics. To associate it with one party speaks to why Washington has been (allowed to be) out of control for forty years.

Lacks objectivity? What part of a republic in decline and big governments exploitation of young people and the future lacks objectivity? You can't seriously say the future looks as bright for future generations as those in the past.

If you don't like the message, just say so. But clearly the decline of the republic that Mark Levin speaks of has become more rapid under the Obama administration. It seems like yesterday Obama was calling W irresponsible and unpatriotic for his spending. Looking at spending alone during presidential terms, Reagan added $1.86 trillion to the debt to Obama's current $6.167 trillion as of the FY 2014 budget.

No, the flip side is it is the all too typical divisive message we see from certain elements of society, right up to the cop rolling up behind. Some would believe it to be just the opposite where society is gracious and charitable, and those people are intolerantly labeled as simple minded, uninformed and even a jack*** for having a different interpretation. Understandably it's just a video but it IS open to interpretation. Tolerantly come to grips with that.

I'm just happy to hear that ONLY SOME the money ("That's not to say that none of the money released will be used by Iran to fund its homicidal agenda...") will be used to kill us. I'm feeling better about this deal all time, especially now that we know (hear again the talking point) that Iran will be "LESS ABLE" to embroil us in another Republican (approved also by most Democrats) Middle East war.

It all seems very logical and reasonable to draw that feel good conclusion. Arming our enemies has always served the US well. " Sep 13, 15 9:29 AM

Southampton High School Assistant Principal Stars In Music Video

You're familiar with the phrase "guilt by association" yes?

A school administrator associating herself with the content and language in the video in any respect is appalling. The lyrics drop the P bomb, B bomb, S bomb, N bomb, F bomb.... and then there is the general content and theme of the video.

Misogyny (/mɪˈsɒdʒɪni/) is the hatred or dislike of women or girls. Misogyny can be manifested in numerous ways, including sexual discrimination, belittling of women, violence against women, and sexual objectification of women.[1][2]" Sep 20, 15 10:34 AM

Literally, misogyny is manifested in many ways and sexual objectification is one of them. Sexual objectification defined is the act of treating a person as an instrument of sexual pleasure. Objectification more broadly means treating a person as a commodity or an object, without regard to their personality or dignity. Taking that a step further, female sexual objectification by a male involves a woman being viewed primarily as an object of male sexual desire, rather than as a whole person... aka misogyny.

I would suggest that there was nothing "free" about the video and most certainly nothing about "love." " Sep 21, 15 9:41 AM

“With regards to Iraq, you and I agreed, I believe, that there should be a status of forces agreement,” Romney told Obama as the two convened in Boca Raton, Fla., that October. “That’s not true,” Obama interjected. “Oh, you didn’t want a status of forces agreement?” Romney asked as an argument ensued. “No,” Obama said. “What I would not have done is left 10,000 troops in Iraq that would tie us down. That certainly would not help us in the Middle East.”

Last I checked highhat, Susan Rice works for "the Obama administration" as clearly stated in y post and joe hampton accurately referred to "The people around him." You miss the mark again.

Regardless of what the findings and court martial recommend as punishment (if any), any nincompoop can deduce that Bergdahl didn't serve with honor and distinction just from the mere fact that he left his post - or is that in question as well?

If "Fair-minded Americans will await the outcome of the court martial" as you claim, why is it that Susan Rice can make such a claim of Berdahl serving with "honor and distinction" well prior to any decision?

Rep. Lee Zeldin Announces Over $990K in Funding for The Suffolk County Fatherhood Initiative October 3, 2015 Press Release

Hauppauge, NY– Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, C – Shirley) today announced $999,999 in funding for The Suffolk County Fatherhood Initiative, a program run by The Retreat Inc., which is based in East Hampton.

The Suffolk County Fatherhood Initiative, based in Hauppauge, seeks to provide assistance to low-income and at-risk fathers in an effort to prevent incidents of family or domestic violence, and empower these individuals to form and maintain healthy relationships, effectively parent their children, and provide them with the tools they need to support themselves and their families, both emotionally and financially. The Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Family Assistance and the generosity of private donors throughout the community fund the program.

Congressman Zeldin said, “I am proud to announce that The Suffolk County Fatherhood Initiative will receive the funding they need to continue their great work in Suffolk County. Providing those in need with the tools necessary to better themselves and their families is an important initiative that is indicative of the character of our Long Island community; and I am confident that The Suffolk County Fatherhood Initiative will continue their great work for Long Island.”

Karen Lombri, Program Director, said, "I am grateful for the opportunity to be able to continue this important work with fathers in Suffolk County. This funding will allow us to help fathers to be better able to care for their children both financially and emotionally and participate in violence-free healthy and mutually supportive relationships.”

The funding was secured through The Administration for Children and Families, which is part of the Department of Health & Human Services, and supports the economic and social well-being of individuals and families across the nation." Oct 11, 15 9:57 PM

Well at least we now know your position on low-income families, domestic violence and the family unit.

But again... he is doing everything within his power and authority on important East End and District 1 initiatives. " Apr 25, 17 10:55 AM

No discourteousness intended nor portrayed hat, I've purposely avoided that level contrary to taunts of such. The facts speak clearly on their own merit. I understand you don't like Mr. Zeldin, and that's fine. But to say he "hasn't done a thing for the East End?" is simply not factual. And yes, I believe he is taking every opportunity to do everything within his power and authority on important East End and District 1 initiatives. Whether that supports your naked BELIEF is yes, you guessed it, another story. I've cited example after example of ACTION taken by Mr. Zeldin. You've cited nothing by ideologue hyperbole. " Apr 25, 17 1:04 PM

Hogwash! Securing funding is not.... ineffectual. Being engaged in issues is not... ineffectual. Actively lobbying and promoting action is not.... ineffectual. HA... some would say that if mother nature wanted the Atlantic Ocean to roll over on us it will do so, and there isn't a darn thing you, me, Mr. Zeldin or he predecessor could do about it. If you want to halt the rise of the oceans, I'd suggest the former President Obama as your ideal District 1 candidate for that's what he promised to do.

" Apr 26, 17 9:09 AM

I'm not surprised you'd misrepresent my reference to "some people" as the position of Mr.Zeldin hat. The "some people" I was referring to were other posters in the thread where you chastised the SHP for the Zeldin "puff piece" which essentially lauded his work and support for coastal erosion - you know, the very initiatives you've repeatedly said he "hasn't done a thing for"." Apr 26, 17 10:28 PM

Clearly no inference to the Honorable Mr. Zeldin hat, poorly written on my part is debatable. Crystal clear however is that you chose to infer a linkage from the reference "some would say that if mother nature...". Perhaps it is preconceived beliefs on your part that could be at issue hat. Mr. Zeldin has not even remotely subscribed to any of the issues as being unsolvable nor unimportant given his arduous efforts and results in securing funding on many fronts. In fact he has continuously led efforts, one such example, Co-Chair of the Long Island Sound Caucus and founding member of the bipartisan Congressional Estuary Caucus. In fact, he has secured funding, $1.16 Billion to be exact for District 1. Bravo Mr. Zeldin!" Apr 27, 17 10:49 AM

If you're counting hat, count accurately. It's the 6th? time you've ignored factual evidence which refutes the bogus claim that the Honorable Mr/Zeldin "hasn't done a thing for the East End."

Here's the latest from today:Washington, DC – Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1) announced today that he has just reintroduced his bipartisan bill in the House of Representatives to prevent the sale of Plum Island by the federal government to the highest bidder. " Apr 27, 17 11:19 PM

Congratulations, Po Boy! - - - At last!
You finally found a topic in which The Honorable Lee has expressed interest that is uniquely important to East Enders as well (rather than to Nutmeggers, NYCityites, Nassau residents, and The Honorable Lee’s preferred up-island constituents [in descending order of emolument.])" May 1, 17 8:10 AM

"The rest of us wish that he would have asked the feds for money for (Water Mill's) beach renourishment."

Last I checked hat, Water Mill fell somewhere between Fire Island and Montauk, and was considered in current Army Corp of Engineers prioritization of needs as part of the Fire Island to Montauk Stabilization Project to which Mr. Zeldin successfully increased funding by 48%. This effort went toward beach and waterfront nourishment on the Great South Bay, Moriches Inlet, Fire Island, and Westhampton barrier islands, among other locations. It also includes dredging of Shinnecock Inlet (on the East End if you were wondering) and local management plan of Georgica Pond, and continued erosion protection along Potato Road and Downtown Montauk. Water Mill was likely a lower priority given it was part of a 2014 replenishment effort.

" May 2, 17 8:05 AM

I would disagree hat your assertion that water pollution and quality, legislation providing resources for Long Island Sound Restoration; commercial fishing, and tourism, the National Estuary Program established by the Clean Water Act and which promote water quality and wetland restoration and Fire Island to Montauk Point dredging, erosion, beach nourishment and shoreline projects are not unique interest to the East End." May 3, 17 8:02 AM

Come on hat, Mr. Zeldin secured a 48% increase is beach restoration type work to the tune of $1.16 billion for beach and waterfront nourishment on the Great South Bay, Moriches Inlet, Fire Island, and Westhampton barrier islands, among other locations. If you want to talk Montauk specifically, look to the continued erosion protection along Potato Road and Downtown Montauk. If you want details, they are included in the Army Corp General Reevaluation Report." May 3, 17 11:36 AM

"Baseless and unfounded".... yup!" May 4, 17 10:54 AM

Mr. Zeldin "hasn't done a thing for the East End." From just the recent Consolidated Appropriations Act (H.R. 244) to fund the federal government for the remainder of Fiscal Year 2017.

$8 million in funding for the Long Island Sound Program, an increase of $4 million in funding, $26.7 million in funding for the National Estuary Program, and $72.5 million in funding for Sea Grant. " May 8, 17 8:10 AM

Once again, you ignore the obvious. They most certainly do pertain to the East End. Just more examples of the work Mr. Zeldin is doing for the remainder of the year and these projects alone. " May 8, 17 1:03 PM

Zeldin Says No Special Prosecutor Needed After FBI Director Fired

Let's start at the beginning. What's the crime? Months of inquiry has led to zilch and statements by those in the know that support no wrong doing." May 16, 17 12:28 PM

Hmmm what?" May 16, 17 12:39 PM

A few thoughts johnj on another fine example of there's nothing about nothing in the accusations.... there is nothing less than a covert coup transpiring to unseat a duly-elected President of the United States by a leftist ideologue political base and corrupt media (but I repeat myself) that have a tingle up there legs to recreate their Watergate heyday. The real story here is people at the highest levels of government are leaking information to the news media about President Trump's discussions. That's potentially a serious crime." May 17, 17 7:38 AM

Yes zilch. Easily explainable in the light of continuous fake news." May 17, 17 11:44 AM

Mr. Z, you fail to acknowledge the testimony of former Deputy Assistant Secretary Of State for International Programs For Diplomatic Security Charlene Lamb before The House Select Committee On Benghazi on December 15, 2015 and in 2012. In 2012 she testified that she told Eric Nordstrom, a Regional Security Officer In Libya, that if he submitted a request for more security, she would not support it. HOUSE OVERSIGHT AND REFORM COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN DARRELL ISSA (R-CA): "Ms. Lamb, yesterday you told us in testimony that you received from Mr. Nordstrom a recommendation but not a request for more security. And you admitted that, in fact, you had previously said that if he submitted a request, you would not support it. Is that correct?" LAMB. "Sir, after our meeting last night, I went back and-at the time-" ISSA: "Well, first answer the question, then I will let you expand. Did you say that yesterday, that you would not support it if he gave you the request?" LAMB: "Under the current conditions, yes." ("The Security Failures Of Benghazi," Committee On Oversight And Government Reform, U.S. House Of Representatives, Hearing, 10/10/12. p.52). Benghazi Accountability Review Board: "Board Members Found A Pervasive Realization Among Personnel Who Served In Benghazi That The Special Mission Was Not A High Priority For Washington When It Came To Security-Related Requests." "Overall, the number of Bureau of Diplomatic Security (DS) security staff in Benghazi on the day of the attack and in the months and weeks leading up to it was inadequate, despite repeated requests from Special Mission Benghazi and Embassy Tripoli for additional staffing. Board members found a pervasive realization among personnel who served in Benghazi that the Special Mission was not a high priority for Washington when it came to security-related requests, especially those relating to staffing." (U.S. Department Of State, Accountability Review Board Report, 12/18/12, p. 5). In 2012, Lamb Testified That Budget Cuts Had Nothing To Do With Security Decisions In Benghazi. ROHRABACHER: "It has been suggested the budget cuts are responsible for lack of security in Benghazi, and I'd like to ask Ms. Lamb, you made this decision personally, was there any budget consideration and lack of budget that led you not to increase the number of people in the security force there?" LAMB: "No, sir." (Committee On Oversight And Government Reform, U.S. House Of Representatives, Hearing, 10/10/12)." May 19, 17 8:32 AM

Politics aside if that is possible, budget cuts were NOT the reason why three Americans died in Benghazi. They died because of on-the-ground decisions related to what we now know to be inadequate security - and decisions made by State Department leadership to NOT consider improvements to inadequate security to which there was no nexus to funding. Those decisions boiled down to deciding inadequate security was not a priority." May 20, 17 9:32 PM

Yeah, all that energy and effort Making America Great Again can be exhausting." May 21, 17 6:29 PM

The real question, is the Left Islamaphobic or Misogynist? Hillary Clinton tried to pass herself off as a champion of women, but the leaders of Islamic countries easily bought her silence on their poor treatment of women by donating many millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation. With marked contrast to Hillary Clinton's silence, Ivanka Trump is actually stepping up and doing something positive for women in the Mid East, much to Leftist dismay. " May 21, 17 8:58 PM

Jeanne d'Arc as you say hat? Not really. Just a simple unselfish act. " May 22, 17 9:09 AM

Good for Flynn. As we saw during the Obama administration and parade of officials who plead the fifth, it doesn't equate to guilt or misconduct or so the story would go. " May 22, 17 9:47 PM

Arnold, Google my friend, it's not classified information and to most who are paying attention, it's common knowledge - the count is somewhere around 10 - at least - and that's considering a corrupt media that is incapable of doing its job when a Democrat is in office. " May 23, 17 12:02 AM

More like wishful thinking. Declared unproven by Snopes on May 15th. As you know, an indictment indicates being charged with a crime. No crime has been identified as being committed. At best for those cheering for an indictment, precedent would dictate a sitting president would have to be fully impeached before being charged with a crime. It seems unlikely federal prosecutors would contradict the Department of Justice. " May 23, 17 8:47 AM

Conflating issues is what the Left does best. Should we vet all Brits now you say June B and perhaps Mr. Z? That statement misrepresents what the the executive orders are on its face value. The executive order has two major components. It temporarily suspended entry of all refugees - those who want to resettle in the United States - for 120 days and barred refugees from Syria indefinitely. It also prohibits nearly all citizens from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen from entering the United States for 90 days. No where are Brits mentioned. But yes, IF Brits or anyone for that matter are coming to the US to live, they should go through certain vetting which (GASP!!!) may look at travel and associates from the 7 countries identified as terrorism hotbeds (Abedi visited Libya and Syria), and certainly those who come onto the radar as having indications of being radicalized as Salman Abedi had been identified as having become by his parents." May 24, 17 9:12 AM

Here's what we know. 1) Either a leak occurred on a alleged conversation between Trump and Coates/Rogers to the WP - possibly a crime or it is a fabrication - also a crime. 2) two current and two former officials, made the statement to the WP. 3) The administration denied such a conversation took place. 4) Coates refused to corroborate the conversation took place. WTF are we even talking about here? NOTHING! It's unsubstantiated BS." May 24, 17 9:36 PM

Ahh. Good catch hat t/y, not that it changes anything as the whole thing remains as I stated before in my bottom line... UNSUBSTANTIATED. Washington Post May 22 By Adam Entous and Ellen Nakashima “The White House does not confirm or deny unsubstantiated claims based on illegal leaks from anonymous individuals,” a White House spokesman said. “The president will continue to focus on his agenda that he was elected to pursue by the American people.” UNSUBSTANTIATED.

I suppose you're looking for evidence to support an incident that questionably ever took place? I see how this works. Guilty until proven innocent is the new Leftist credo. " May 25, 17 3:49 PM

Oh good, hat is making predictions! We know what that means if the election results are any indication. Accused "Right-Wingers" are the hoot (wait for the pattern!), yet Leftists have called for Trump to be impeached — despite having never seen any actual evidence against him and despite the fact Comey was required by law to report any potential obstruction of justice to federal authorities, which he didn’t do. See a pattern by our leftist friends? If they aren't in deny deny deny mode, it's attack attack attack - all despite the evidence, or in this case, without ANY substantiated evidence. " May 26, 17 9:21 AM

"The Donald FIRED Comey while he was in the midst of investigating Trump..." Wrong hat!

HE (Comey) was not investigating Trump. This is a misrepresentation of facts. HE (Comey) does not investigate... the FBI investigates. Second, Trump is not under investigation. Circumstances of possible Russian involvement in the election is being investigated. Not Trump. There remains no evidence indicating collusion. This is a Leftist pipe dream. Something that has no evidence... isn't and shouldn't be the source of an investigation. But it would seem, this is the police state tactics the Lefists have deployed. " May 31, 17 9:42 AM

So someone you know, was told something by someone they know about an issue, in which the details are unknown. Hmmm. Ok, got it." May 31, 17 1:59 PM
