Trump Just Blasted Hillary With A 2-Sentence Uppercut So Hard Bill Probably Felt It

As Hillary Clinton seeks to find a new defense in her ongoing email scandal, Donald Trump cut to the core of the issue.

“Clinton may go to jail but is still running for president? 99% of people would be in jail for what she did,” Trump tweeted Sunday.

Unlike Clinton, whose statements on the issue have changed over time, Trump has consistently emphasized that laws were broken through Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was Secretary of State.

“She committed a crime,” the Republican presidential candidate said in August.

“The fact is that what she has done is criminal,” he said in July.

On Monday, Clinton was confronted by NBC’s Savannah Guthrie over the scandal.

During the Today show, Guthrie reminded Clinton that the Democratic presidential candidate had accused Republicans of blowing the scandal out of proportion, while also offering varying levels of apology.

“Which is it?” Guthrie pointedly asked. “If you’re blaming the Republicans, some might wonder how genuine is that apology?”

Clinton’s response walked a verbal tightrope.

“Well, actually it’s both,” Clinton said. “I mean, I’m sorry that I made a choice that has resulted in this kind of situation, and I’ve said I’ve made a mistake. Obviously if I had to do it over again, I wouldn’t. It was allowed and everybody has confirmed that. But it’s also, as we now know very clearly, the way that the Republicans are trying to bring my– as they admit– poll numbers down.”

Last week, Trump said that if he is elected, the investigation into Clinton’s emails would continue.

“What will be interesting is if a Republican gets in — and ultimately it’s going to be Trump — if a Republican gets in. You know, you have a six year statute of limitation on this,” Trump said. “Would they go after her because then you would have somebody who would be actually very fair, that they’d look at it fairly? And would that happen? She may very well have to win the presidency, because she may have bigger problems if she doesn’t.”

Trump said a Democratic administration would protect Clinton.

“I think they probably won’t indict her,” Trump said. “And it’s very unfair to Gen. (David) Petraeus and other people who have been indicted for far less than what she’s done.”

She Was Critically Injured In Oregon Massacre- What She’s Saying About Guns Now Shocks Many

The devastating school shooting in Oregon has prompted many anti-gun responses, including one’s from President Obama. There are many, however, who believe that revoking our Second Amendment rights is not the solution, including someone who was personally involved in the attack. Umpqua College student, Chayenne Fitzgerald, was shot in the back by the perpetrator, but even so she still supports the right to keep and bear arms. She is currently in the hospital recovering, needing surgery to have a kidney removed. 

Jesse Fitzgerald, the brother of Cheyanne, in words that would surprise proponents of gun control, stated: “We’re pro-Second Amendment, pro-guns. My sister, my mother, my whole family are all in favor. We were talking about it in the hospital and none of us have changed our minds.”

Jesse suggested other possible solutions to the school gun violence problem: “We should have teachers trained in non-lethal ways to take people down. There is surely a way to defend kids at school. Armed guards on campuses maybe.”

Jesse has been at his sister’s side during her stay in the hospital. “It’s hard for her to move right now. It’s painful for her to move around and she can’t sit up by herself. She’s also pretty disoriented from the medication,” he said.

The family has set up a GoFundMe project, hoping to help cover the cost of Cheyanne’s care.

A family member of Quinn Cooper, a victim who didn’t not survive the attack, also released a statement in support of gun-rights:

We are hearing so many people talk about gun control and taking people’s guns away.

If the public couldn’t have guns it wouldn’t help since sick people like this will always be able to get their hands on a gun.

We need to be able to protect ourselves as a community and as a nation. Please don’t let this horrible act of insanity become about who should or shouldn’t have a gun.

Please remember the victims and their families. Please remember Quinn.

Palestinian Violence Continues To Escalate As Israel Braces For New Terror War

Less than four days after Fatah terrorists murdered an Israeli couple in front of their four young children, it is becoming clear that the Palestinians want another Intifada.

On Saturday, a 19-year-old Palestinian Arab from the Palestinian town of El-Bireh near Ramallah murdered two Israeli men and wounded a woman and a baby with a knife in the Old City of Jerusalem.

The terrorist, Muhammad Halabi, was shot and killed by Israeli police officers after he grabbed the gun of one of his victims and fired at the security forces who had arrived at the scene of the attack. The day before he embarked on his murderous mission he wrote on his Facebook page “The Third Intifada is here.”

He appeared to be influenced by the incitement campaign about the supposed Israeli threats against the Al-Aqsa mosque on the Temple Mount. Halabi, who was a student at Jerusalem’s Al-Quds University wrote the following on his FB page:

According to what I see, the Third Intifada has erupted. What is happening to al-Aqsa (Mosque) is what is happening to our holy sites, and what is happening to the women of al-Aqsa is what is happening to our mothers and women. I don’t believe that our people will succumb to humiliation. The people will indeed rise up.

Halabi’s remarks about the Palestinian women on the Temple Mount was in reference to the Israeli ban of the Islamist female group, Murabitat, who used to harass Jewish visitors to the Mount.

Shortly after the deadly stabbing attack, more Palestinian violence was reported in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem. The light rail in Jerusalem was once again stoned by Arabs in the Shuafat neighborhood in northeast Jerusalem and a second stabbing attack by an Arab terrorist wounded a 15-year-old Jewish boy in the Mamilla mall.

An Israeli Arab was attacked and wounded in the vicinity of Kiryat Arab by a mob of Palestinian Arabs who took him for a Jew. The ambulance that took the Israeli to a hospital was stoned and an IDF army jeep that chased after the rock-throwers was attacked with a fire bomb and went up in flames.

At the same time, Palestinian Arabs fired at an IDF checkpoint near Beth El in Samaria and several other shooting attacks were reported in the Israeli city of Lod, Jerusalem, Ma’aleh Adumim and Cochav Ya’acov. Two Israeli minors were reportedly injured in these attacks.

The stabbing attack in the Old City drew a response from groups of Jews in downtown Jerusalem. An Arab taxi driver was attacked by a group Jews who chanted “Death to the Arabs” and violent clashes between groups of Jews and Arabs broke out in the Mamilla pedestrian mall outside the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem. In the area of Neve Tzuv and the Palestinian city, Nablus cars belonging to Palestinian Arabs were stoned, likely by Jews.

After three days of silence, the Palestinian Authority finally responded to the deadly terror attacks on Thursday and Saturday. The PA called upon the world to intervene because of Israel’s “policy of escalation” and “the killing of two young men in occupied Jerusalem and the series of incursions into cities and villages in the West Bank.” The “two young men” the PA mentioned in its statement were the two terrorists that were shot dead after the murders of the Henkin family and the deadly stabbing in Jerusalem.

WAFA, the official Palestinian news agency, published the statement by PA spokesman Ihab Bseiso, who did not mention the terror attacks that killed four Israelis and wounded at least six others but again claimed that Israel tries to “divide the Al-Aqsa mosque.”

The Arab language website of WAFA manipulated the news about the deadly stabbing attack in Jerusalem. The WAFA reported that the “occupation army” (IDF) killed a young Palestinian “who allegedly was involved in a stabbing attack in occupied Jerusalem.” The English web page told a different story: “a Palestinian, 19-year-old Mohannad Halabi from Ramallah, was shot dead after he stabbed and killed two Jewish extremists in Jerusalem’s Old City.”

Earlier WAFA and other Palestinian media spread a false report about the death of a six-year-old Palestinian boy near the city of Qalqilyah. The Palestinian media reported that a “Jewish settler” had shot and killed the boy, but both the IDF and Israeli media reported that he had died because he and his brother were playing with a loaded gun.

Jordanian journalist Mudar Zahran presented further evidence that the Palestinian Authority is not only fanning the flames in the escalation of violence but is in fact the organizing force behind what Yediot Acharonot, Israel’s leading newspaper, calls the Third Intifada.

Zahran tweeted a link to the Facebook page of Amiri, a Palestinian refugee camp, that showed that PA security forces were actively involved in organizing violent riots.

Intifada 3

The incitement that played a large part in the escalating violence since the riots at the Temple Mount on the eve of Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) was also responsible for massive stone throwing that occurred on Route 60 between Jerusalem and Hebron on Sunday morning.

A source in the Israeli security forces in the area of Al-Arub and Beit Umar, two Palestinian villages along Route 60 in Judea, told Western Journalism that muezzin of the central mosque in Beit Umar broadcasted an audio recording of the fatal stabbing attack in Jerusalem during the morning prayers. A Jewish woman, probably the wounded mother, could be heard screaming “Please save us.” Shortly afterward the massive rock-throwing on Route 60 began.

Arabs in the same area had earlier celebrated the death of the Henkin couple who were murdered by Palestinian terrorists in front of their four little children on Thursday. They handed out sweets and shot fireworks. The murder on Nehemia Lavi (41) and Aharon Benneth (21) on Saturday was celebrated too. Arabs set up a Facebook page in honor of Muhammad Halabi, the terrorist who stabbed the two Jews to death. The page gained more than 2000 likes in 24 hours.

Meanwhile, the IDF has started a crackdown on Palestinian terrorists. The elite unit, Duvdevan, arrested scores of Palestinian suspects during early-morning raids in the Palestinian cities Nablus and Jenin in Samaria. The IDF has also reinforced its presence in Judea and Samaria and is reportedly preparing incursions in villages and cities that are known to be hotbeds of terrorism.

Other measures taken by Israel include a ban on prayer in the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem for Muslims younger than 50 years and a partly closure of the Old City in Jerusalem for Muslims. Buses with Muslim worshippers that were on their way to the Al-Aqsa mosque were stopped by Israeli police and sent back to where they departed.

Watch: Hillary Blindsided By Tough Questions From NBC- Can Only Repeat Same 3-Word Defense

Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign continues to be plagued with questions regarding her use of a private email server while Secretary of State. When confronted by an NBC news anchor about her email scandal, Hillary Clinton kept repeating the three-word defense: “It was allowed.”

Anchor Savannah Guthrie reminded Clinton “how bad it looks” to the average American.

Guthrie also pressed Clinton regarding her seeming inconsistency regarding who is to blame for the controversy: “I guess my question to you is, which is it? If you’re blaming the Republicans, some might wonder how genuine is that apology?”

Clinton attempted to take responsibility for the issue, while simultaneously blaming Republicans for it becoming such a scandal:

I mean, I’m sorry that I made a choice that has resulted in this kind of situation, and I’ve said I’ve made a mistake. Obviously if I had to do it over again, I wouldn’t. It was allowed and everybody has confirmed that. But it’s also, as we now know very clearly, the way that the Republicans are trying to bring my– as they admit– poll numbers down.

Guthrie then asked: “Do you get how bad it looks?”

Clinton again responded: “It was allowed.”

Clinton’s email scandal has had a dramatic effect on her campaign for President. An NBC/WSJ poll shows her trailing Bernie Sanders by 14 points in New Hampshire, when Joe Biden is included in the equation.

Watch: Journalist Brilliantly Blows Up MSNBC’s Anti-Gun Argument With One Perfect Question

National Review’s Charles C. W. Cooke appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Friday responding to President Obama and other anti-gun liberals who are calling for gun-control legislation in the wake of Thursday’s campus shooting in Oregon. 

In statements made Thursday night after the shooting, Obama said: “This is something we should politicize,” adding that it is “a political choice that we make to allow [these shootings] to happen every few months in America.”

Cooke responded to these comments made by the President and others like him: “The way they talk is as if they have the answer and there are these recalcitrant forces in the country that say ‘no, no, no,’ even though deep down they know their legislation will work. That’s simply not the case. It’s far more complicated than that.”

In response, Time journalist Mark Halperin said that there must be “passion to try to come up with solutions.” 

After a back and forth with Halperin and Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski, Cooke asked the question that quieted both:

“What is it you’re proposing?” [emphasis added.]

Former Vermont governor and DNC Chairman Howard Dean jumped into the conversation, suggesting universal background checks and holding gun dealers responsible, if they sell guns to those with a mental illness.

Cooke responded that now they could at least have a debate whether those proposals would actually address the problem of mass shootings.

He continued by critiquing President Obama’s reaction to the shooting: “before any details were known here, before they knew who the shooter was, what gun he used, where he had got the gun, the president came out…and said you know what we need to do? These three things we always talk about. Once again, those three things didn’t even intersect with this shooting.”
