Hillary’s Campaign Grows Noticeably More Aggressive

from The Daily Bell:
Hillary, beset by rumors about her health and ethics, is becoming more aggressive with her critics. She is hiring groups to fight back in chat rooms and on websites against criticism, (here).
Additionally, she is moving ahead with her campaign as she prefers – and apparently without fear of what her opponents will think – taking a jet for only 20 miles to attend a Rothschild fundraiser in Nantucket at $100,000 a plate, (here).
She will be making few formal appearances or speeches during the rest of August, even though her campaign reportedly sent out a panicked fund-raising memo to supporters.

Questioning Hillary’s Health is Not Conspiracy Theory

by Michael Krieger, Liberty Blitzkrieg:
Ever since alternative media sources made Hillary Clinton’s health a legitimate campaign issue, much of the mainstream media has been comically and instinctively rallying around her, smugly proclaiming that anyone who questions Her Highness’ physical or mental fitness for office to be a deranged rightwing conspiracy theorist.
What’s so amusing about the tactics of these self-important pundits is their willingness to do the exact same thing they demonize “fringe bloggers” of doing: playing doctor. Most of those rushing out to confidently ensure the public that everything is just fine and dandy with Hillary Clinton’s health lack any medical credentials. They’re just journalists and pundits who have decided Hillary is fine based on a two-page letter from internist Dr. Lisa Bardack. Does writing for the Washington Post or CNN make them the authority on Hillary Clinton’s health? Of course not.

Trump Campaign Reveals Secret Weapon: ‘Undercover Trump Voters’

“The hidden Trump vote in this country is a very significant proposition”
by Adan Salazar, Infowars:
“Undercover Trump voters” could help pull off a decisive victory in November, Trump’s campaign manager suggested in a recent interview.
Speaking to the UK’s Channel 4 in a report entitled “Could Trump win?”, Kellyanne Conway said polls showing Trump losing to Hillary are manufactured by the media and do not reflect the actual public sentiment.
“The polling numbers for Donald Trump are looking pretty bad now, aren’t they at the moment?” reporter Matt Frei asked.
“Not all of them, no. Just the cherry-picked polling numbers that are put out by media outlets that are also bent on his destruction,” Conway responded, adding that online polling consistently shows something much different.
