    While deleting e-mails this morning, I found something interesting I had missed. I got this a couple of weeks ago from a former associate who works for WORC (Western Organization of Resource Councils).

    Some good info, therein.

    We need to hear more bout this in the MSM and from Dem candidates. Yes the American Muslim community is helping us track potential terrorists. Trump, as usual, is a liar.

  3. The Clinton Campaign has apparently been given enough of a nod to go about the business of moving the party into general election mode.

    Her first order of business? Appointing someone to run the DNC. Although Debbie Wasserman-Schultz will remain tiitular head of the party, SEIU Political Director Brandon Davis will be taking over the day-to-day operations of the party as Clinton takes her place as presumptive nominee. One has to assume that Sanders was okay with this – and why shouldn't he be, since it gets DWS out of the way and puts a labor figure in at the top?

    Cookie asked for an update on the question of how Independent voters really vote.   Here's one from the nation: they are actually partisans in most cases.

    Donald "Smokin' Hole" Trump is having trouble keeping his own campaign from shattering, much less able to work with outsiders, like the RNC:

    Trump’s relationship with RNC sours

    Tensions flare as the party hires a fired Trump aide and uses vendors linked to #NeverTrump, while fundraising flags.

     

    Donald Trump is relying heavily on the Republican Party to bolster his skeletal operation, but his campaign’s relationship with the Republican National Committee is increasingly plagued by distrust, power struggles and strategic differences, according to sources in both camps.

     

    Several Trump allies said their distrust spiked this week when they learned that Rick Wiley, who was fired from the campaign last month, had been spotted in the RNC’s Capitol Hill offices and had participated in a Tuesday RNC conference call.
     

    On Wednesday, the RNC told The Washington Post that it had retained Wiley as a consultant to help run its national field program — a move it said was done with the blessing of the Trump campaign.

    However, three operatives in and around the campaign suggested Wiley’s hiring at the RNC may have been blessed by one faction of the campaign, but that it’s not going over well with many staffers.
