Hillary’s presidential bid was doomed from the beginning

In December 2014, Hillary Clinton made up her mind to run for president. But even as her team geared up in early 2015 for the formal announcement in April, the campaign was beset by problems: press leaks, the burgeoning email server scandal, competing speechwriters, divided staffers, leaderless advisers and a meddling Bill Clinton. Yet the most alarming issue of all, authors Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes reveal in this exclusive excerpt from their new book, “Shattered,” was the candidate’s inability to convey a clear vision or message.

Hillary Clinton lost because Obama voters went to Donald Trump

WASHINGTON —

A select group of top Democratic Party strategists have used new data about last year’s presidential election to reach a startling conclusion about why Hillary Clinton lost. Now they just need to persuade the rest of the party they’re right.

Many Democrats have a shorthand explanation for Clinton’s defeat: Her base didn’t turn out, Donald Trump’s did and the difference was too much to overcome.

But new information shows that Clinton had a much bigger problem with voters who had supported President Barack Obama in 2012 but backed Trump four years later.

Spending bill language omits border wall funding, sanctuary cities crackdown

Republican and Democratic lawmakers forged a $1.07 trillion spending package that would fund the government through the end of September, but does not include some of President Trump’s cornerstone promises including funding for a border wall or funding cuts to sanctuary cities.

The proposed legislation has no funding for Trump’s oft-promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, but does set aside $1.5 billion for border security measures such as additional detention beds. It does give Trump a $12.5 billion down payment on his request to strengthen the military, a figure which could rise to $15 billion should Trump present Congress with a plan for fighting the Islamic State terror group. The proposed $15 billion amounts to half of Trump’s original $30 billion request.

Billionaire Robert Mercer did Trump a huge favor. Will he get a payback?

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service is demanding a whopping $7 billion or more in back taxes from the world’s most profitable hedge fund, whose boss’s wealth and cyber savvy helped Donald Trump pole-vault into the White House.

Suddenly, the government’s seven-year pursuit of Renaissance Technologies LLC is blanketed in political intrigue, now that the hedge fund’s reclusive, anti-establishment co-chief executive, Robert Mercer, has morphed into a political force who might be owed a big presidential favor.

Organizers cancel 82nd Avenue of Roses Parade, after protesters threaten to shut it down

A threatening email has derailed one of the Portland Rose Festival’s signature events, and spurred new debate about the ongoing political protests in Portland.

Organizers of the 82 nd Avenue of Roses Parade announced Tuesday that the event will be canceled, for fear that the east Portland parade could be disrupted by “the type of riots which happen in downtown Portland.”

Originally scheduled this Saturday, April 29, the parade is meant to highlight the local community and businesses along Southeast 82 nd Avenue, aiming to turn around the negative perception many people have of the area. It started in 2007 and has since become a popular event on the Rose Festival calendar.
