Re: “Editor's Note

While Betts has done many good things, she has also:

1. Publically endorsed a campaign with Holocaust-denier [ADL] Norman Finkelstein.

2. Participated in an event using the IPMN "Steadfast Hope" curriculum. Dexter Van Zile from Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA) reported extensively on the "Steadfast Hope Curriculum" as full of lies, and supportive of terror. The JCPA (nationwide umbrella organization for bi-partisan Jewish Community Relations Councils) condemned the IPMN as antisemitic. The JCPA's Ethan Felson conducted a training in Tucson showing the IPMN to regularly invoke racist, antisemitic, tropes.

3. Publically expressed solidarity with John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt, authors who allege that the US government is controlled by pro-Israel lobbyists.

4. Picketed The Jewish Festival at the Tucson Jewish Community Center, demonizing Jews and Israel and frightening preschool children. (I was the staff photographer who took photos of her picketing.)

5. Self-identified as a member of Women In Black, an organization that is viewed by many as crossing the line between being anti-occupation and demonizing Israel and holding Israel disproportionately responsible for the conflict.

George S that begs the question, can Hillary be more disappointing than Barack Obama?

Re: “Editor's Note

How truly disappointing da coach.

Why not settle the Russian controversy? Podesta could turn his computer and all emails over to Congress, or even Comey's FBI. Let's see if the Russians actually changed or forged them. I would bet they are verbatim. The DNC tried to lie their way out of it last night.

Try lying to the IRS on YOUR taxes.

I also watched Hillary last night and I lost even more respect for her. Either way we are going to be greatly troubled with the outcome.

Do we deserve this?

Re: “Editor's Note

Let's not be naïve. Politics is, by its very nature, corrupt. It always has been and always will be. The most effective President will be the one who can best game the system.

Re: “Editor's Note

Hillary must have been born under a lucky star. Handed the opportunity to run against the single most preposterous Republican candidate in our history, it looks as if she might scrape through to victory on the reality behind the reality star, Trump is Mencken's imbecile and a deviant to boot.

Watching the final debate last night I watched Clinton repeatedly freeze when questioned or attacked on her dismal performance as Secretary of State and on the family profiteering under the auspices of the Bonnie and Clyde Global Initiative. And no, I haven't forgotten about the "damn emails." With every new leak I realize exactly how corrupt she and her gang truly are but I guess that's what the meaning of "quid pro quo" is (sort of like what the meaning of "is" is).

Re: “Editor's Note

It has nothing to do with the fact that HRC is a woman. It has to do with the fact that she is a better (although not the greatest) choice than an egotistical, xenophobic, racist, misogynist, accused child raping hothead.

It's already a fact though. Chump's gonna lose. Stock up on the Blue Bunny and facial tissue, because you and all the other Chump lovers are gonna need it.

Crying shame. (Not really.)

Re: “Editor's Note

Said like a true confusionist. Hillary has dedicated her life to public service? She has dedicated her life to her bank account from cattle futures to the Clinton Foundation. She consistently lies and cheats. Without repurcussion.

But hey, she's a woman. Maybe next time we can raise our standards but for now we will drag the bottom of the barrel. If she wins can she avoid prosecution for four years? Hard to say.

Methinks the editor needs a copy editor.

Re: “Editor's Note

Don't try to figure those like/dislike things. I have seen great comments disliked, and deplorable cursing liked. I think it's the prevalent drug culture in Tucson.

Bringing back News of the Weird should be top priority over anything else. Savage and ¡Mexican! could disappear for good and it wouldn't mean jack.

Re: “Editor's Note

All if the Bernie supporters should show their support for the voting system and write in Bernie cast a vote of conscience.

This is now the time since the majority of Democrats had their primary votes thrown out in 2008 & 20016 like they didn't matter. Now is the time to let your vote count write in " Bernie"
