Clinton focuses on helping the disabled: No Trump in Speech


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Hillary Clinton’s concern now is  about policy. Hopefully, there will be less ofTrump. She immediately starts with that and ignores Trump.

Philippine President

Clinton strongly explains her agenda of  giving people with disabilities an equal chance at success. She made it clear that the opportunity for the disabled  is a vital aspect of her presidency.

The speech is in contrast with Trump

She has the chance to criticize Trump who mocked New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski, in the past. His arthrogryposis impairs the movements in his arms. But Clinton chose to  ignore Trump’s deed and continued her 30-minute speech.
It was Clinton’s fourth in a series of addresses where she attempts to talk more about her values and proposals.  Hardly not mentioning Trump.

Stronger Together

Clinton’s past “Stronger Together” speeches on faith, community service and children and families have been far more focused on Trump.  The latest speech lived up to what Clinton’s aides had hoped the series of speeches would be: More policy than politics.
Clinton said people with disabilities are “invisible, overlooked and undervalued” The United States is “falling short” in protecting their rights.

Face problems and do Better

for everyone’s sake,” Clinton said. “Because this really does go to the heart of who we are as Americans.”
Clinton added that as president, she would do away with the subminimum wage. She will urge Congress to ratify the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Then launch a program to help with autism in the workplace.

No Isolation for the Disabled

“People with disabilities shouldn’t be isolated. They should be given the chance to work with everyone else. And we’re going to eliminate the subminimum wage, which is a vestige from an ugly, ignorant past,” Clinton said.  She refers to laws that allow employers to pay people with disabilities less than the minimum wage. Some advocates for the disabled, however, have feared that the elimination of the subminimum wage would diminish hiring of disabled workers.

Speech Attracts Supporters

Jennifer Mizrahi, the president of Respect Ability, an advocacy organization for people with disabilities, said the speech was the first time a presidential candidate has dedicated an entire campaign event to the disabled.

Poorest of the Poor

People with disabilities are usually the “poorest of the poor,” Mizrahi said, noting that around 400,000 disabled people work in “sheltered work shops where they can pay subminimum wages, as little as 20 cents an hour.”
The activist also suggested the Clinton’s struggles would be helped by focusing on people with disabilities.
“We span every demographic,” she said. “A lot of white people with disabilities.”

Clinton Strong with the Latino-Americans

Clinton is beating Trump with Latino and African-American voters, but lagging behind the Republicans with white voters, especially those without a college degree.

Trump loyal Christie calls Clinton a ‘disgrace’ over mixed Info


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

New Jersey governor and Donald Trump surrogate Chris Christie called Hillary Clinton “a disgrace”. This is  after she connected recent police shootings to “systematic racism”. This has happened hours after the GOP nominee said he was “very troubled” by a recent incident in Oklahoma.

Philippine President

“She’s a disgrace. She’s a disgrace and those comments are a disgrace,” Christie said Wednesday on “The Laura Ingraham Show.” “It’s typical of Hillary Clinton. She knows nothing but the mouth never stops.”

Not Different from Rival Trump

Trump, however, has also displayed a tendency to speak about events before all the facts are made clear. He was noted calling the explosion in New York City  a “bomb” 30 minutes after the incident. Despite  not knowing the exact facts.

The Steve Harvey Show

Ingraham played comments Clinton made Tuesday on “The Steve Harvey Show” following the shooting of Terence Crutcher. He is  a 40-year-old unarmed black man shot dead by police in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

“And we’ve got to tackle systemic racism — this horrible shooting again,” Clinton said. “How many times do we have to see this in our country? In Tulsa, an unarmed man with his hands in the air? I mean, this is just unbearable, and it needs to be intolerable. And so maybe I can, by speaking directly to white people, say, look, this is not who we are.”

Synonymous with Trump

Trump, speaking Wednesday in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, at a minority voter outreach event, also expressed concern about the shooting.

“I must tell you, I watched the shooting, in particular in Tulsa, and that man was hands up, that man went to the car — hands up — put his hand on the car. To me, it looked like he did everything you’re supposed to do,” Trump said. “And he looked like a really good man — and maybe I’m a little clouded because I saw his family talking about him after the fact … but he looked like somebody who was doing what they were asking him to do.”

Keith Lamont Scott

Christie — speaking hours after Clinton condemned the shooting death of Keith Lamont Scott in Charlotte, North Carolina — said the former secretary of state doesn’t know enough about policing to draw any conclusions.

“The fact is she has no idea what happened in North Carolina,” he said. “The same way, as you very aptly pointed out Laura, people jumped to conclusions in Ferguson, which caused riot conditions in Ferguson, because of politicians dumping gasoline on a fire.”

National Best Practice for Clinton’s Campaign

The Clinton campaign has said she hopes to develop national best practices for police to help them manage situations like those in Tulsa and Charlotte. But Christie, a former federal prosecutor, said Clinton had “no experience in law enforcement except for being interviewed by them.”

“I’m just appalled, and as someone who spent seven years in law enforcement, she’s exactly the kind of politician that law enforcement loathes, loathes her,” Christie added. “Because she jumps to conclusions for political gain and doesn’t care what careers or lives she ruins in the process.”

US Election: Clinton’s pneumonia not a big deal


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

As U.S. election day is fast approaching, there’s no stopping Hillary Clinton. She has not rested after being diagnosed with pneumonia. She’s back on the campaign trail – thus showing signs of weakness. Is it worth it? Here’s CNN’s coverage:

Pneumonia not a big deal

Hillary Clinton said Monday night she’s “met a high standard of transparency” about her health and didn’t think the pneumonia was “going to be that big a deal.”

Clinton said she felt dizzy and lost her balance Sunday, but did not lose consciousness, and is now “feeling so much better.”
“I was supposed to rest five days — that’s what they told me on Friday — and I didn’t follow that very wise advice,” Clinton told CNN’s Anderson Cooper in a phone interview.

“So I just want to get this over and done with and get back on the trail as soon as possible,” she said.

Clinton appeared wobbly and stumbled Sunday as she left a 9/11 commemoration ceremony in New York. Her campaign later revealed she’d been diagnosed Friday with pneumonia — a disclosure that fueled arguments that the Democratic nominee isn’t sufficiently forthcoming about important details. But during her interview Monday, Clinton sought to turn criticism of her secrecy over her illness into an attack on Republican rival Donald Trump.
“Compare everything you know about me with my opponent. I think it’s time he met the same level of disclosure that I have for years,” Clinton told Cooper.

“It’s really past time for him to be held to the same standards, not just as me, but as anybody else who has sought this job,” she said.
Clinton had a cough last week, and chalked it up to allergies — joking at an event that she was allergic to Trump.

She said Monday night she’d thought at the time it was allergies, because she experienced a similar cough in the spring and fall due to seasonal allergies.

“What happened this time, though, was it didn’t dissipate, and that’s why when I got off the road on Friday, I did go to see my doctor, and that’s when I was diagnosed with pneumonia,” Clinton said.
She said her campaign didn’t publicly reveal her diagnosis because “I just didn’t think it was going to be that big of a deal.”

“Obviously I should have gotten some rest sooner — I probably would have been better off if I just pulled down my schedule on Friday, but like a lot of people, I thought that I could just keep going forward and power through it. And obviously that didn’t work out so well,” she said.

Rody Duterte is as Careless as Hillary Clinton

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Hillary Clinton already apologized and taking full responsibility for her carelessness in using her private email while handling highly confidential matters while serving as secretary of state under the Obama administration.

However President Rodrigo “Rody” Duterte has yet to realize that his “shoot to kill” order for suspected drug criminals when jeopardizing the lives of arresting policemen would be used in favor of the real big-time drug lords. Now, conniving police officers can freely shoot those whom they think have links to the illegal drugs bosses.

President Rody Duterte himself uncovered the 5 generals suspected to be drug lord coddlers earlier. It is not far from reality that many policemen loyal to them if guilty would use their new power to further protect their masters. This is why almost every corners of the city is not anymore safe from the shooting spree of the police – and what’s pathetic is that; they are protected by the new President despite not admitting into it – just simple common sense.
