A total of around 100 people armed with bats and pipes were involved in the clashes in front of a local migrant center. Finns reportedly attacked the migrants first on Tuesday evening, according to media reports. The latest clashes come amid a growing number of fights between the locals and the migrants over a new migrant center that was built in Forssa.

It’s far easier for the media to go after an outgoing president than the women most hope will replace him. Definitely don’t want to tarnish her. What’s more, she is out in California taking money from Hollywood celebrities while not even bothering to stop by the scene of any of the massive, destructive fires that consumed sections of that state.

With dozens injured, some critically, and an unknown number trapped under rubble, the death toll from the pre'dawn quake was expected to rise further, officials warned. The quake razed mountain homes and buckled roads in a cluster of communities some 140km east of Rome.

The activists will be part of a Republican Leadership Initiative, a Republican Party effort to get interns involved in political campaigns to take back the White House, from Trump´s home borough of Queens. ´This is part of his Hispanic outreach, and I think he wanted to explain where he is and why he is a benefit to the Hispanic community, Representative Bob Turner, who is Politics Foundation controversy forces Clinton campaign to play defense Thu, 25 53 2016 03:53:46 GMT http://www.Lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=884807 5f801e96c10d8c1470721d5e7c923c2ecd49b70e Washington Post, by Abby Phillip Posted By: Dreadnought- Thu, 25 53 2016 03:53:46 GMT Questions about Hillary Clinton’s handling of Clinton Foundation donors during her time as secretary of state have put her on the defense after weeks of quietly allowing Donald Trump and his controversies to dominate the headlines. The Clinton campaign moved aggressively Wednesday to address negative story lines related to her use of a private email server and handling of her family’s foundation and redirect the attention back to Trump. In television appearances, in rapid'fire tweets, on the radio and in countless news releases, Clinton’s allies moved quickly to discredit news reports that suggest she improperly gave access to Clinton Foundation Trump ‘softening’ on immigration? Many of his supporters don’t seem to mind.

The answer: When it’s a negative story about Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. This familiar phenomenon has unfolded in the last 48 hours following a new Associated Press investigation which revealed that over half of Mrs. Clinton’s visitors when she was secretary of state turned out to be donors to the Clinton Foundation. The revelation bolstered credence to Republican claims that Mrs. Clinton favored “pay'to'play” schemes in global affairs and elsewhere. In the immediate aftermath, major broadcast networks soft'pedaled the findings, and were quick to showcase the outrage Donald Trump’s backslide on immigration angers base, does no good with Hispanics Thu, 25 42 2016 03:42:11 GMT http://www.Lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=884803 92743184ab7b47ce6386ca414b426af28ba74b5f Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan Posted By: Dreadnought- Thu, 25 42 2016 03:42:11 GMT Donald Trump was supposed to deliver a major address on immigration Thursday, laying out a plan that would win over swing voters while reassuring his base that he is serious about enforcing the law. Instead, he has postponed the speech, sent staggeringly conflicting messages about his plans and managed to anger Hispanic activists, who say there is little he can do to appease them at this point, and die'hard supporters, who say any backsliding on his strict deportation message will expose him as a pandering politician. The wounds are self'inflicted. Mr. Trump has talked tough yet promised the possibility of Hillary Clinton haunted by her own ‘pay'to'play’ attacks against Obama Thu, 25 39 2016 03:39:24 GMT http://www.Lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=884802 f252d956b03172cb7224f50ea5b8c91a05e08248 Washington Times, by David Sherfinski Posted By: Dreadnought- Thu, 25 39 2016 03:39:24 GMT Eight years ago, it was Hillary Clinton who was accusing candidate Barack Obama of being swayed by his financial backers, including his connections with Tony Rezko, a fundraiser who was imprisoned for his role in “pay'to'play” schemes involving former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich. Mrs. Clinton now finds herself in the crosshairs of those same accusations but insists there is no fire behind all the smoke rising from the Clinton Foundation. Her campaign says it’s ridiculous to think donations to the Clinton family’s massive charity were enough to earn access to the secretary in the State Department. Campaign finance analysts and Hillary Clinton’s run'out'the'clock strategy Thu, 25 30 2016 03:30:03 GMT http://www.Lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=884801 3cea2b3f4f55777478ae536ad7a77be3b6b6ba57 Politico, by Annie Karni Posted By: Dreadnought- Thu, 25 30 2016 03:30:03 GMT She is not planning on sitting for another televised armchair confessional to rehash regrets about a private email server. Nor is the campaign setting up the kind of war room employed last year to discredit a book that aimed to expose a quid'pro'quo relationship between Clinton Foundation donors and State Department officials. With 75 days until Election Day and new emails once again casting a pall over her campaign, Hillary Clinton aims to “run out the clock,” confidants say, on the latest chapters of the overlapping controversies that have dogged her campaign since the start.

Becket Adams Posted By: JoniTx- Thu, 25 28 2016 03:28:52 GMT (Video) Hillary Clinton should go on avoiding press conferences because reporters don´t treat her fairly, longtime Clinton backer and former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean claimed Wednesday. "She has no reason to trust the press corps, and the so'called email scandal is one of the reasons," he said in an interview on MSNBC. His remarks come on the heels of a Tuesday Associated Press story showing that Clinton scheduled meetings with more than 80 Clinton Foundation donors when she served at the State Department, which accounted for more than half of her meetings with non'government officials in the first two years she Establishment Republicans Blast Never' Trumpers for ‘Moral Preening’ Thu, 25 23 2016 03:23:07 GMT http://www.Lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=884799 619d9615e5acd6243ecec505308534763a72b0ee Breitbart News, by Staff Posted By: JoniTx- Thu, 25 23 2016 03:23:07 GMT The Huffington Post’s Ryan Grim explains why some Republicans think Never'Trumpers are missing the point – and why they should keep their “commercial self'interest masquerading as ideological purity” to themselves. From The Huffington Post: Every day of the Donald Trump campaign seems to bring with it a new article about an establishment Republican whose conscience can’t bear to back the reality TV star.

'' Donald Trump has spent the week calling for African'Americans to uproot voter trends, reject "the bigotry" of Hillary Clinton, and vote for him in November. But Wednesday night, Trump escalated the line of attack and labeled Clinton herself a "bigot." "Hillary Clinton is a bigot who sees people of color only as votes, not as human beings worthy of a better future," Trump said, reading from prepared remarks. Unlike past lines that have drawn scrutiny, including Monday´s comments in Ohio about African Americans not being able to walk the street without being shot, this one was not a Trump Veteran Kills Himself in Parking Lot of V.A.

Peter A. Kaisen, of Islip, was pronounced dead after he shot himself outside Building 92, the nursing home at the medical center. The hospital is part of the Veterans Affairs medical system, the nation’s largest integrated health care organization, which has been under scrutiny since 2014, when the department confirmed that numerous patients had died awaiting treatment at a V.A. hospital in Phoenix.

The criticism, which comes from civil rights leaders as well as Mrs. Clinton, has dogged Mr. Trump almost from the start of his campaign, but the barbs sharpened last week after the Republican presidential candidate tapped Breitbart News chief Stephen K. Bannon to be campaign CEO.

Instead of spending the end of August storming through battleground states, Clinton is on a money'raising marathon to pay for her fall fight with Donald Trump. However, Clinton’s absence from the trail has kept her from turning the page on controversies surrounding her emails and the Clinton Foundation, which has raised $2 billion to promote global health and economic development. Instead, she has opened herself up to attacks.

Mr. Farage – who led his party (UKIP) to victory in the 2014 European Parliamentary elections, to a whopping 4m votes in the 2015 UK general election, and mostly importantly, to Britain voting to leave the European Union in 2016 – has used the “People’s Army” moniker to describe his party’s supporters for years.
