But Drumpf and his campaign team clearly did not do their homework on Malik Obama, because despite Drumpf's claims that he will be tough on terrorism, Drumpf's guest is allegedly a supporter of Hamas, an anti-Israel group that denies the Holocaust and commits acts of terrorism to achieve their ultimate goal of wiping Israel off the map.
The Times of Israel reports,
In January 2014 the Daily Mail uncovered a photograph showing Malik Obama with a traditional Arab headscarf decorated with slogans of the Palestinian terror group Hamas.
The scarf, called a keffiyeh, was draped around Obama's neck and carried the Arabic phrases for "Jerusalem is ours we are coming" and "From the river to the sea," both popular Hamas chants.
On inviting Malik Obama to the debate, Drumpf has said "I look very much forward to meeting and being with Malik. He gets it far better than his brother."
This will leave a mark: the pro-Hillary Clinton Super PAC Priorities USA has gone back to the vast reserve of damaging Donald Drumpf statements for a new ad titled "I love war." And yes, that's a Drumpf line used in the ad.
Drumpf's words run over images of the Vietnam War, of Islamic militants, of a mushroom cloud.
"I'm really good at war, I love war, in a certain way."
" -- including with nukes. Yes, including with nukes."
"I know more about ISIS than the generals do, believe me."
"Nuclear, just the power, the devastation, is very important to me."
"I want to be unpredictable."
On 11 October 2016, the Facebook page "Sustainable Business Network NZ" posted a photograph of a clipping from the 14 August 1912 edition of the Rodney and Otamatea Times, Waitemata and Kaipara Gazette that included a brief item headlined "Coal Consumption Affecting Climate":
The furnaces of the world are now burning about 2,000,000,000 tons of coal a year. When this is burned, uniting with oxygen, it adds about 7,000,000,000 tons of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere yearly. This tends to make the air a more effective blanket for the earth and to raise its temperature. The effect may be considerable in a few centuries.
Further attesting to its authenticity (and perhaps its role as a bit of stock news used to fill space) is that an identical story had appeared in an Australian newspaper a month prior, in the 17 July 1912, issue of The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal, as found in the digital archives of the National Library of Australia. read more
Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain said Donald Trump is not necessarily a better candidate than Hillary Clinton when it comes to appointing Supreme Court justices and said Republicans wouldn't approve any Clinton nominee to the Supreme Court. "I promise you that we will be united against any Supreme Court nominee that Hillary Clinton, if she were president, would put up," McCain said Monday. "I promise you. This is where we need the majority." McCain said he didn't know if Trump would be the advocate conservative voters need to fill the late Justice Antonin Scalia's empty seat on the court. "I don't know because I hear [Trump] saying a lot of different things," McCain said.
