Hillary Clinton Interviewed at Code Conference

On Wednesday, Hillary Clinton was interviewed at the Code Conference in Ranchos Palos Verdes, California. Clinton was interviewed at the annual event by veteran tech journalists, and Recode co-founders, Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher. During their conversation, Clinton discussed losing the 2016 election, which she took the blame for. She did also place part of the blame on a number of other factors including the alleged hacking of the DNC and John Podesta by Russia, the letter sent to Congress by FBI Director James Comey, and incorrect data provided by the DNC. Clinton was also critical of the Democratic Party’s digital strategy saying that the party needed to get better at outreach. When asked whether she would remain active in politics, Clinton said, “I’m not going anywhere. I have a big stake in what happened in this country. I am very unbowed and unbroken about what happened because I don’t want it to happen to anybody else.” The full video of Clinton’s interview is below.

Clinton Speaks about Diversity in Silicon Valley

Hillary Clinton returned to political form on Tuesday when she spoke at the Professional Business Women of California Conference in San Francisco, California. Clinton spoke to a crowd of over 3,500 before sitting down for a conversation with Susie Tompkins Buell. During her speech, Clinton spoke about the need for all Americans to resist the rhetoric of President Donald Trump and his administration. She also urged everyone to continue to fight against the repeal of the Affordable Care Act and contact Congress. She said, “Resist, insist, persist, enlist.”

The majority of her speech focused on diversity in the workplace and the need for equal pay for women and paid family leave. She urged the business leaders in the room, most of them from Silicon Valley, to lead the way forward in granting employees paid family leave and maternity leave. Clinton criticized the Trump administration and Congress for attempting to roll back health care coverage for women. She said that when the Republican health bill failed last week it “was a victory for all Americans.” But Clinton warned “the other side never quits. Soon or later they’ll try again, and we will need to fight back twice as hard.” Watch a video from the event below.

Statement From Hillary Clinton On California National Guard Scandal

hillary-logo-jpg-crop-thumbnail-small

Monday, Hillary Clinton released the following statement in response to the disturbing report from the Los Angeles Times that soldiers are being told to repay thousands in old enlistment bonuses:

“I am appalled that National Guard officials are attempting to recoup money from soldiers who accepted bonuses a decade ago – with the active encouragement of government officials and through no fault of their own – for bravely enlisting to serve our country during a time of war. These troops deserve our support and our deepest gratitude; they served admirably and upheld their part of the bargain. It is unacceptable to now subject them and their families to undue financial burdens thanks to to mismanagement from the California National Guard and rigid bureaucracy on the part of the Pentagon.

I am calling on Congress to swiftly pass legislation to right this wrong. In the meantime, we should assist these families in identifying and applying for relief as well establishing an expedited review process. We simply cannot allow this type of mistreatment of veterans, for any reason.”

screen-shot-2016-10-22-at-6-33-17-pm

Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine campaigned together in Pennsylvania on Saturday. Their first event was in Pittsburgh where Kaine began by speaking about Clinton and their vision for the future. When Clinton took the stage, she had a populist tone speaking about a number of her key platform points including her plans to create jobs, invest in manufacturing jobs, raise the minimum wage, and her pledge to not raise taxes on middle class families. While she admitted that the campaign between her and Republican Donald Trump has been anything by calm, she hoped that everyone can come together after the election because we all have a stake in America’s future. “You probably know people who are thinking about voting for Donald Trump. I want you to tell them that I understand that they need a president who cares about them … and I want to be their president. Whether you vote for me or against me, I believe we can disagree without being disagreeable,” she added later. A video from the event is below.

Clinton and Kaine then traveled to Philadelphia where he spoke first about Clinton saying that despite what Trump says, he thinks that Clinton “looks damn presidential.” She then spoke to a crowd of over 7,000 supporters on a cool evening about the importance of the 2016 election and voting a Clinton-Kaine ticket to the White House, but she also stressed the importance of other down ballot races, especially the Pennsylvania race for Senate. She spoke about Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Katie McGinty and how she will work for Pennsylvanians in Congress. Clinton then urged everyone to vote on November 8th adding, “Friends don’t let friends vote Donald Trump.” A video from the rally is below.

Clinton and Kaine also spoke to reporters on board their plane between the events in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. They spoke about their focus during the last two weeks of the debate, and they react to a speech from Trump earlier in the day. Watch a video of the press briefing below.

1094034_723426-20161013_chelsea_048

Today, Bill Clinton continued his bus tour in Iowa with stops in Mount Vernon and Davenport. At his first event in Mount Vernon, Bill spoke with supporters on the campus of Cornell College. He focused on the issues saying that we, as a country, can do better than Donald Trump, and that his message is divisive at a time when we need more unity. Bill continued saying that the “us versus them” mentality is not productive. He urged everyone to vote on November 8th because this election will set the tone for the country for the next four years. A video from the event will be posted when/if available.

Bill wrapped up his bus tour in Iowa at an event in Davenport. During the event, Bill was interrupted by protestors and Trump supporters that were removed by local police. He responded to the protests by criticizing Trump’s message saying, “If you serve poison for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for a year and a half, somebody’s going to drink it and give it back.” Bill then continued with his usual campaign speech in which he outlined Hillary’s platform points and an optimistic view of the future. “You want to elect somebody President who believes everybody’s got a story. Everybody deserves human dignity. Everybody deserves a chance to live their dreams. We all do better when we work together,” he said. Videos from the events will be posted when/if available.

Chelsea Clinton spoke with supporters at an organizing event on the campus of the University of Maine in Orono, Maine. Chelsea outlined her mother’s plan for the United States and her focus on economic equality. She said that she understands the anger with the current political system, but that Hillary will fight for those who need a voice. “I’m really proud that she does sweat the details, even though her opponent criticizes her for being too prepared. Because if it’s your child or your family or the future of our planet those are (important) details, so I’m so proud of my mom and of her campaign and even more her life of work and advocacy, because this election is about our future but it’s ultimately about our values.” A video of Chelsea’s speech is below.

In Cleveland, Ohio, Mothers of the Movement held a local community discussion. Full coverage from the event will be posted when/if available.

Meanwhile, two fundraisers were held on behalf of Hillary for America today. The first was in San Francisco, California and featured a conversation with Hillary Clinton.

Review: Newspapers Endorsing Hillary Clinton

Hillary_for_America_2016_logo.svg

Hillary for America released the following rundown of all the newspapers from across the country that have endorsed Hillary Clinton for president.

As Republicans abandon Donald Trump in an act of self-preservation – coming to the long overdue conclusion they could have made months ago – newspapers across the country continue to show near-unanimous agreement in endorsing Hillary Clinton for President. One newspaper, The Columbus Dispatch, is endorsing a Democrat for the first time in 100 years.

From Florida and Pennsylvania to Colorado and Ohio, editorial boards continued to weigh in this week to make the affirmative case that Hillary Clinton is, by far, the best choice for President.

A selection of this week’s endorsements include:

FLORIDA

Tampa Bay Times: Times Recommends: Hillary Clinton for President

October 6, 2016

Excerpt: Hillary Clinton is the only candidate for president with the values, experience and knowledge to meet the challenges at home and abroad. Donald Trump is stunningly unprepared and temperamentally unfit for the presidency, and he has played upon our deepest fears and worst impulses with reckless rhetoric, wild promises and flagrant disregard for the truth. His bombast makes for entertaining television, but it is not suited for the Oval Office.

Sun Sentinel: Sun Sentinel Editorial Board Endorses Hillary Clinton for President

September 30, 2016

Excerpt: The very bottom line? Trump is not qualified. Hillary is fully qualified to serve as president of the United States. Use your vote to swing this swing state to Hillary.

IOWA

The Hawk Eye: Our Endorsement – Hillary Clinton

October 9, 2016

Excerpt: Hillary Clinton should be — and we believe will be — the next president of the United States. It will be as historic an election — the first woman to be elected president — as it was in 2008 when Barack Obama became the first black American to win the presidency.

Clinton Herald: Why Hillary Clinton is Best Choice for President

October 8, 2016

Excerpt: Hillary Clinton’s record of public service and detailed knowledge of the complex and imposing issues the nation will confront in the next four years make her the superior choice to become the next president.

OHIO

The Columbus Dispatch: For President | Trump unfit, Clinton is qualified

October 9, 2016

Excerpt: For us, the choice between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump is not pleasant, but it isn’t difficult. Republican candidate Donald Trump is unfit to be president of the United States. Democrat Hillary Clinton, despite her flaws, is well-equipped for the job.

Cleveland Plain Dealer: In the Matter of Our Endorsement for the President of the United States of America…

October 9, 2016

  • Elizabeth Sullivan: “In a head-to-head, it’s evident despite her flaws that she understands diplomacy, she knows how to work the room on Capitol Hill, she understands the power of words and how to use them and – most important of all – she will not be reckless. Let me repeat that: Hillary Clinton will not be reckless. Trump will, it’s guaranteed. There is only one choice this year to keep Donald Trump out of the White House and to ensure a rational, non catastrophic next four years. That is a vote for Hillary.”
  • Sharon Broussard: “If you could stomach it, Trump would be great entertainment on a political reality show. But the Oval Office is the real deal and he should be nowhere near it. Vote for Clinton.”
  • Thomas Suddes: “You don’t have to like Hillary Clinton or for that matter to loathe Donald Trump to consider Clinton the better presidential prospect. She is. Demonstrably.”
  • Mark Vosburgh: “But the words he has used during the campaign are what mark him as unfit for public office, or even a stool at a respectable tavern. His utterances are the most reckless, untruthful and hateful of any major-party presidential candidate in the 44 years that I have been of voting age. […] So, by default, I voted to endorse Clinton and will mark by ballot accordingly.”

PENNSYLVANIA

The Tribune Democrat: Hillary Clinton the Only Choice for President

October 9, 2016

Excerpt: For all his rhetoric and brash statements, Trump has provided no specific plans for making America “great again” – his campaign pledge – nothing to generate confidence in how he would operate in the White House. […] The job of president requires resolve, refinement, vision and a dose of humility – none of which Trump has displayed during the campaign. The Democratic nominee is the only viable candidate for president.

Penn Live: For President, the Only Choice is Hillary Clinton

October 6, 2016

Excerpt: Our endorsement here, then, is based on an examination of the challenges facing the nation and the candidate best-suited to address them. That candidate, hands down, is Hillary Clinton.

NEVADA

Las Vegas Sun: We Endorse Clinton for President and Implore Voters to be Responsible

October 9, 2016

Excerpt: With absolute confidence in her abilities and our nation’s bright future, we enthusiastically endorse Hillary Clinton for president.

NORTH CAROLINA

Raleigh News & Observer: For President: Hillary Clinton

October 8, 2016

Excerpt: As a candidate, Clinton will not win by dividing and offering hollow promises of huge tax cuts and restoring some mythical former America. She will win on knowledge, competence and grit. On the campaign trail, she connects with crowds by acknowledging their needs and raising their hopes. Trump says America is in decline. Clinton sees it rising into the promise of a new century. No candidate has ever been more qualified. She will be an excellent president. Vote for Hillary Clinton.

The Charlotte Observer: For president: A Flawed, But Capable, Clinton

October 1, 2016

Excerpt: But the sum of Clinton’s flaws adds up to far less than the danger of Donald Trump. The Republican nominee is a man unfit for the presidency, and one who would steer our country toward peril. For that reason alone – although there are others – we endorse Hillary Clinton for president.

ALABAMA

AL.com: Endorsement: We’re with Hillary Clinton. Frankly, Donald Trump’s dangerous.

October 9, 2016

Excerpt: Donald Trump must not be president.

The Cullman Times: Clinton Only Choice for President

October 7, 2016

Excerpt: Trump shows little understanding of the complexities of domestic and international challenges. His thin skin, impulsiveness and temperament make him a high risk in tense situations. He of- fers no ideas on how to address increasing racial unrest in urban cities. He cavalierly promises to destroy ISIS with military power and illegal torture. He talks of abandoning NATO and terminating longstanding defense agreements with Japan and South Korea. If elected, there is a strong possibility he might isolate the United States from the world no matter the dire consequences.

CALIFORNIA

The Fresno Bee: Clinton Will Give More Americans an Opportunity to Succeed

October 7, 2016

Excerpt: Based on her positions on the big issues of our time – the economy, taxes, immigration, the global war on terrorism, policing, gun control and climate change – and her huge edge in public service experience and temperament over her chief rival, we recommend Hillary Clinton as the strong, steady and compassionate leader America needs in the White House.

Ventura County Star: Hillary Clinton Should Be Our Next President

October 7, 2016

Excerpt: When you vote for president, the Ventura County Star Editorial Board strongly urges you to select Hillary Clinton. Donald Trump does not have the personal qualities, experience, temperament or values to be president of the United States. More than that, we believe a Trump presidency could be dangerous for the future of this nation, domestically and particularly in our relations with the world.

COLORADO

The Denver Post: It’s an Easy Call: Hillary Clinton for President

October 7, 2016

Excerpt: Democrat Hillary Clinton, the first woman ever to win a major-party nomination, is without question the most qualified candidate in the race for president and an easy call to make when considering the challenges confronting the nation. Her nearly 40 years in public life have instilled in her the temperament she needs to face the many challenges that await.

CONNECTICUT

The Day: Hillary Clinton is the Candidate Ready to Lead

October 9, 2016

Excerpt: Americans must reject promises that industrial jobs can suddenly be restored by renegotiating trade deals, a tactic that instead invites economically damaging trade wars. They must reject a huckster who says he can quickly dispatch of our enemies with a secret plan. They must reject the un-American notions of rounding up millions of people for mass deportation or banning, because of irrational fears, members of a specific religious group from entering our country.  They must reject a candidate who ignores the scientific evidence of man-made climate change and who would roll back hard-won reproductive rights for women. Instead they should elect the candidate who has demonstrated she is ready for the job. The Day endorses Hillary Clinton for president.

The Hartford Courant: The Courant Endorses Hillary Clinton

October 7, 2016

Excerpt: America needs a president who will lead with reason, not instinct; who will unite, not divide. Mrs. Clinton has, as President Barack Obama said, the compassion and the heart for the job.

GEORGIA

The Daily Citizen: Hillary Clinton is Our Choice for President

October 7, 2016

Excerpt: We believe Democrat Hillary Clinton’s policies, plans and ambitions offer more balance and reliability for the nation than gambling on the risky promises of Republican Donald Trump. She has the political leadership competencies to steer a steady course in a time of increasing turmoil at home and around the world.

ILLINOIS

Effingham Daily News: Our View: Effingham Daily News Endorses Clinton

October 6, 2016

Excerpt: Trump is not qualified to lead and should not be elected. Agreeing are high-ranking members of the party he has usurped with bombastic appeals to fear and intolerance. We question his competence to lead anything, much less this nation. He is a man so full of insecurities, paranoia and outright bigotry that his only accomplishment during an unlikely run for the presidency has been to divide this country even more than it already was – something we thought impossible a year ago.

INDIANA

Tribune Star: For presidency, Clinton the Clear Choice

October 9, 2016

Excerpt: Hillary Clinton is clearly the better choice to serve as America’s 45th president in a complex world. Her skill set and experience match the deep and broad demands of that difficult office. Trump, through his immature actions and statements, has conclusively proven that he represents a threat to the republic and the values upon which its foundation was built.

Kokomo Tribune: Hillary Clinton for President

October 9, 2016

Excerpt: He has a disturbing self-heralded history of womanizing. He battled with one of our nation’s Gold Star families. He boasts he was “smart” to avoid paying federal income taxes and uses business debt for self-enrichment. He doesn’t share the values important to Hoosiers: generosity, humility and servanthood. We know who we are. We know Hillary Clinton’s record of public service and intricate knowledge of domestic and foreign policy make her the best choice for president.

MAINE

Bangor Daily News: Hillary Clinton Has the Vision, Experience and Temperament to Serve as Our Next President

October 7, 2016

Excerpt: For us, the choice isn’t between the proverbial lesser of two evils. The choice is between voting for someone committed to a life of public service who has the experience, the intelligence and the temperament to lead the nation versus someone who is committed only to himself, who lies constantly and who regularly displays a lack of self-control.

MASSACHUSETTS

The Boston Globe: Hillary Clinton for President

October 8, 2016

Excerpt: This election isn’t a close call. Only one candidate on the ballot Nov. 8 belongs anywhere near the White House, and it’s Hillary Clinton. The Globe enthusiastically endorses her candidacy, and urges voters to run, not walk, to their nearest polling place when early voting begins in Massachusetts on Oct. 24.

MISSOURI

The Joplin Globe: Our View: A Nation at Risk

October 9, 2016

Excerpt: When it comes to the future security of America — the most important issue of our time — Clinton is the candidate who makes the most sense.

St. Louis Post Dispatch: Hillary Clinton for President

October 9, 2016

Excerpt: The presidency is the most revered office in the land and America’s most precious possession. In Donald Trump’s hands, it would be a plaything. Clinton understands what an awesome responsibility it is to lead a nation because she has spent the bulk of her adult life participating in that very endeavor. That’s why she remains: America’s only choice.

NEW YORK

Press Republican: Why We Support Clinton for President

October 9, 2016

Excerpt: Clinton is a smart, strong woman who has the experience, wisdom, restraint and intricate knowledge needed to deal with war, terrorism, nuclear threats and the many other challenges America faces in dangerous times.

Niagara Gazette: We Endorse Hillary Clinton for President

October 9, 2016

Excerpt: In this year’s presidential race, only one candidate has any idea what it means to serve something greater than self or the proven ability to do so, and that candidate is Hillary Clinton. Clinton has significant experience as a public servant, including eight years as First Lady, eight as a U.S. Senator and four as Secretary of State. She is smart, diplomatic, poised and worldly. She has a clear-eyed take on the universe and her place in it. She is an adult.

OKLAHOMA

McAlester News-Capital: MC-C Endorses Hillary Clinton

October 9, 2016

Excerpt: Simply put, Clinton is the one candidate who presents the opportunity for steady, reliable leadership abroad and here at home. Trump’s policies, meanwhile, represent a dark, dangerous direction for the nation if implemented. As America struggles with political and racial division, the president of this country needs to have a calm, reasoned approach and be a unifier — not a divider. Trump’s comments and positions on immigration are inflammatory and insulting to a huge swath of Americans.

Enid News & Eagle: Hillary Clinton is Our Choice for Commander in Chief

October 8, 2016

Excerpt: Realistically, we have only two candidates for president, Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, though other names will appear on the ballot. As has been demonstrated time and again in recent months, Trump does not have the skills, experience or temperament to hold office. For voters, Clinton is the only reasonable choice.

SOUTH CAROLINA

Myrtle Beach Sun News: Clinton By Far the Better Choice for President

October 9, 2016

Excerpt: Clinton is the better choice for president because of her knowledge and command of critical issues and policy, domestic and foreign, her experience and long service to people, and her temperament. She has served as secretary of state, U.S. senator and First Lady. We understand that many people do not trust Clinton; we do not fully understand why so many who resent or fear her simply accept Trump’s many shortcomings as a potential president.

WASHINGTON

The Olympian: Clinton for President? In a heartbeat

October 9, 2016

Excerpt: This election needs to be over. Our country needs Hillary Clinton. It’s time.

The Seattle Times: The Times Recommends: Hillary Clinton, the Only for President

October 7, 2016

Excerpt: Clinton has demonstrated courage, strength and resilience — the traits we especially value in a president. She does this not by tweets and talking tough but through unflagging public service through personal and political crises that would crumble an ordinary person.

WEST VIRGINIA

The Register Herald: Trump Video is the Final Straw: We Are With Her

October 9, 2016

Excerpt: She has the temperament, the ability and the experience to lead this nation.

Trump does not. At the end of the day, this is an easy call. Hillary Clinton is the candidate better positioned by a country mile to lead our country.

Bluefield Daily Telegraph: Endorsement: Hillary Clinton is Best Prepared for the Presidency

October 8, 2016

Excerpt: Hillary Clinton has the credentials, political knowledge and battle-tested competence to deal with the consequential issues the nation will confront in the next four years. She is qualified to become our 45th president.

Other recent endorsements include:

The Atlantic: Against Donald Trump

October 5, 2016

Excerpt: In its founding statement, The Atlantic promised that it would be “the organ of no party or clique,” and our interest here is not to advance the prospects of the Democratic Party, nor to damage those of the Republican Party. If Hillary Clinton were facing Mitt Romney, or John McCain, or George W. Bush, or, for that matter, any of the leading candidates Trump vanquished in the Republican primaries, we would not have contemplated making this endorsement. We believe in American democracy, in which individuals from various parties of different ideological stripes can advance their ideas and compete for the affection of voters. But Trump is not a man of ideas. He is a demagogue, a xenophobe, a sexist, a know-nothing, and a liar. He is spectacularly unfit for office, and voters—the statesmen and thinkers of the ballot box—should act in defense of American democracy and elect his opponent.

Senator Sanders Campaigns in Michigan, Chelsea in Minnesota

6ca13500f93a323a

Senator Bernie Sanders campaigned on behalf of Hillary Clinton in Michigan today. His first event was held in Dearborn where he spoke to a crowd of supporters at the local UAW hall. During his speech, Sanders spoke about a number of Hillary’s platform points including her plan to create jobs and her support of labor unions. He also went after Donald Trump for avoiding to pay income taxes. Overall, however, Sanders offered a populist tone saying, “This campaign is not about Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton — it is about you and your families. We’re not voting for class president of our high school … we are fighting for the survival of the middle class.” A video from the event is below.

Sanders then traveled to Ann Arbor where he spoke to an enthusiastic crowd on the campus of the University of Michigan. During the event, Sanders spoke about the importance of voting, particularly young people, and urged them to get out and vote in November. He spoke about a number of Hillary’s platform points and specifically focused on her plans to reduce the cost of higher education. He said, “What she said is, I should tell the American people that in the first 100 days of her administration she will roll out a very specific plan to make public colleges and universities tuition free for all families earning less than $125,000 a year. And have an aggressive approach to reducing student debt.” Watch a video of Sanders’ speech below.

In Lansing, Sanders spoke to a crowd of students and supporters on the campus of Michigan State University. Sanders continued to speak about a number of Hillary’s platform points while going after Trump for his policies. Focusing on the economy and the struggle of the middle class, he said, “We have come a long way in fighting racism, sexism, homophobia. But today we have one huge struggle in front of us, and that is the economic struggle. And that means that we should not be living in a nation which has more wealth and income inequality than any other major country on earth.” A video of Sanders speech is below.

Sanders’ final event of the day was a rally in Grand Rapids. During the event, Sanders continued with his populist tone talking about the local economy and how a number Hillary’s proposals will be beneficial to the area. He spoke about raising the minimum wage and creating new good paying jobs in the area by reinvesting in manufacturing and clean energy. A video from the event will be posted when/if available.

Chelsea Clinton meanwhile was in Minneapolis, Minnesota where she spoke about Hillary’s plans to help mothers and families. During the event, Chelsea highlighted a number of Hillary’s platform points including her plans to cap the out of pocket costs of childcare, ensure that women are paid equally, raise the minimum wage, and create new jobs by investing in infrastructure and clean energy. Chelsea also spoke about the public perception of her mother saying, “I don’t understand the caricature of my mom. I wish more people could see the huggable, lovable, hilarious side of her that I see now when we are together, with my children, and that I have known my whole life.” Chelsea closed out the event by answering questions from those in attendance. A video from the event will be added when/if available.

In Los Angeles, California, a fundraiser was held on behalf of Hillary for America. The event featured a conversation with Senator Al Franken.
