Former DNC chairman calls for Clinton contingency plan

September 12, 2016 by legitgov

Former DNC chairman calls for Clinton contingency plan | 12 Sept 2016 | A former Democratic National Committee chairman says President Barack Obama and the party's congressional leaders should immediately come up with a process to identify a potential successor candidate for Hillary Clinton for the off-chance a health emergency forces her out of the race. "I think the plan should be developed by 6 o’clock this afternoon," said Don Fowler, who helmed the DNC from 1995 to 1997, during Bill Clinton’s presidency, and has backed Hillary Clinton since her 2008 presidential bid. Fowler said he expects Clinton to fully recover from her bout with pneumonia, which forced her to leave a Sept. 11 memorial event early and cancel an early-week fundraising swing. But he said the Democratic Party would be mistaken to proceed without a contingency plan.

Trigger Warnings, Safe Spaces, Bias Reporting: The New Micro-techniques of Surveillance and Control

September 12, 2016 by legitgov

CLG Exclusive: Trigger Warnings, Safe Spaces, Bias Reporting: The New Micro-techniques of Surveillance and Control By Michael Rectenwald, Ph.D. www.legitgov.org | 12 Sept 2016 | A singular orthodoxy has infiltrated the discursive parameters of U.S. and other universities and colleges. This orthodoxy now constitutes the ethical vocabulary of academia. Adopted from feminism, anti-racism, and LGBTQ theory and practice, the language, doctrines, and mechanisms of this orthodoxy now dominate academia's policies, procedures and handbooks...While innumerable articles have appeared on one or another of these topics (mostly on trigger warnings and safe spaces), no one has explained the structural provenance nor analysed the probable effects of these developments as a whole. Nor has anyone provided a theoretical or historical framework with which to understand them.

Secret Service followed atypical protocol with Clinton's early departure from Sunday 9/11 event | 11 Sept 2016 | The U.S. Secret Service followed atypical protocol with Hillary Clinton's early departure from Sunday's commemoration of the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks at Ground Zero. In a widely circulated video of the Democratic presidential nominee's departure from the ceremony, Clinton can be seen leaning against a security bollard and then buckling and stumbling as her security detail helps her into a black van. According to two former Secret Service agents who reviewed the video, the detail clearly had to rush and did not expect Clinton to leave at that time...The incident also raised questions about Clinton's traveling group of reporters, which she left behind at Ground Zero when she departed unexpectedly, leaving the press with no knowledge of her whereabouts or condition for about 90 minutes.

Video of Clinton's hurried departure from the Ground Zero memorial showed her buckling and stumbling as she got into her van. Clinton's campaign issued a statement from her doctor later Sunday revealing that she had been diagnosed with pneumonia two days earlier. The video, circulated on Twitter, appeared to show Clinton, 68, flanked by several Secret Service agents who are regulars on her detail, leaning against a security bollard while agents prepare to help her into a black van. As she steps forward, Clinton can be seen falling as agents help lift her into the van.

Drill-gone-live: On 9/11, StratCom leaders were practicing for a fictional threat when real, unprecedented catastrophe struck | 08 Sept 2016 | Even before terrorists crashed hijacked jets into the World Trade Center towers and Pentagon [?] out of a blue September sky, Al Buckles was getting ready for Armageddon.
