Hillary Clinton on stage at UC Davis talks Trump, Comey, fake news

By David Caraccio dcaraccio@sacbee.com

Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took the stage at the Mondavi Center Monday at UC Davis as part of her nationwide book tour.

Clinton’s upcoming book, “What Happened,” went on sale Sept. 12 and details her upset loss to Republican Donald Trump last fall.

At the Mondavi Center, Clinton talked about the James Comey letter to Congress that surfaced during the 2016 presidential campaign that mentioned the reopening of an investigation into Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server. She also had a message for women and girls, talked about President Donald Trump, “the new cold war” and more.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Tuesday said wildfires are made worse by climate change, and research says she’s right, according to a report in The Washington Post.

“It’s been a tough couple of weeks with hurricanes and earthquakes and now these terrible fires,” she said during a speech Monday at the University of California Davis, according to Sacramento’s KXTV. “So, in addition to expressing our sympathy, we need to really come together to try to work to prevent and mitigate, and that starts with acknowledging climate change and the role that it plays in exacerbating such events.”

Wildfires have devastated Northern California in one of the deadliest outbreaks in history, claiming at least 15 lives and 1,500 homes and commercial buildings, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.

When Hillary Clinton is not in front of cameras, some seem to think she is “home” and “sleeping.”  Or maybe she is “hiding”, the truth is that in order to sleep she usually takes the medication available here, if not she won;t be bale to get any sleep. A lot of Hillary’s work does require closed doors, briefings and discussions, and deep thought.  Her words, when she is in front of cameras, reflect the homework that she and her staff do out of the public eye.

With that as a given, here is some of what Hillary Clinton was up to today.  She was up and down, in the air and on the ground, attending fundraisers in California.  She also found time to host a tele-town hall with small business owners.  So, no she was not on her sickbed or her deathbed.  She was not sleeping after her energetic appearance with Jimmy Kimmel last night.  She was hard at work.

In Small Business Tele-Town Hall, Hillary Clinton Contrasts Her Policy Agenda with Donald Trump’s Record of Putting Himself First, Leaving Small Businesses Hanging

Hillary Clinton hosted a tele-town hall today with small business owners where she discussed her new comprehensive plan to jumpstart small business startup and strengthen small business growth.

“I believe when you succeed, families thrive and our nation prospers,” said Hillary Clinton. “But I also know that in lots of ways, the odds are stacked against too many of you too many times. It’s clear that big corporations get a lot of the breaks. It’s much harder for you to get a loan, to file taxes, to offer health care to your workers. And from everything I’ve heard and know, you aren’t looking for special breaks. You want commonsense policies that will make life a little bit easier, and that’s why I am releasing our plan today.”

Clinton’s plan is a comprehensive, job-creating package of reforms and innovations to jumpstart small business startups, and strengthen small business growth.

On the call, Clinton highlighted Trump’s record of putting himself first and leaving small businesses hanging. Excerpts of the transcript are included below:

Hillary Clinton: “Donald Trump has made a career of stiffing small businesses, driving some of them actually out of business. He refused to pay them for the work they’d already done – not because he couldn’t pay them, but because he chose not to pay them. “ 

Hillary Clinton: “Even his new campaign manager said that Trump, and I quote, “built a lot of his businesses on the backs of the little guy.”

  • Kellyanne Conway:“[Donald Trump] says he’s for the little guy, but he’s actually built a lot of his business on the backs of the little guy.” [Kellyanne Conway interview on CNN Newsroom, 2/10/16]

Hillary Clinton: “In fact, according to an independent analysis, Trump’s ideas would result in a prolonged recession that would cost 3.4 million jobs. That same analyst analyzed my plan and found that the economy would create more than 10 million new jobs. “

Hillary visited a senior center in Compton, California today and held a press gaggle in the process.  Asked about clinching, she said she wanted to “wait and see where we are after tomorrow.”  She did respond to a question about the history.

Many times she said, she has seen women in tears upon or just after meeting her.  We have seen accounts at the Facebook groups, too, from women who have been to her events and recount breaking down as Hillary left and seeing others around them also weeping.  Hillary is very aware of the history factor. She knows, but she does not want to claim the history prematurely.  That will not stop me from picking up some champagne on the way home from the polls tomorrow.  I have been ready for her to do this for a very long time.

Just one day past one of the saddest anniversaries of my life when I lost my candidate who held so much promise on June 6, 1968, I will see the only candidate who has ever replaced him in my heart clinch the nomination.  Yes, I probably will shed a tear, and I will be ready to toast her and us!  I think Bobby Kennedy will be looking down and smiling. Sláinte!

On the eighth anniversary of Hillary Clinton’s suspension speech, voters in New Jersey and five western states, including the behemoth, California, will go to the polls.  Given her weekend territorial victories, Hillary is certain to clinch in New Jersey before the western polls close.

Some points to remember:

  1. Every victory above and beyond NJ ensures more delegates for Hillary. So if you are in MT, ND, SD, NM, and CA please vote even if you have heard that she has clinched and even if there are lines. What we learned last night is that the lines in Puerto Rico were due to the Sanders campaign asking to have polling places closed due to a lack of volunteers to monitor the original number of polling locations.  Voters were reassigned to new polling locations causing overloads. If this happens where you are, please stay the course and cast your vote.
  2. Some are saying that undeclared special delegates (Super Ds) may rush to declare perhaps today.  John King at CNN has said that it is unlikely that they will do that before Tuesday so that the voters can bring Hillary over the hump rather than the Super Ds.
  3. It is also important to remember that the target total of delegates, 2383, includes Super Ds.  So when the Sanders campaign posits that she has not reached that number in pledged delegates, it is not pledged delegates alone that comprise that target.
  4. All ballots are not created equal. Access your sample ballot, if it has not been sent to you, via your local board of elections and study it before you go.

Here is a scan of the NJ ballot in my district.  Notice that it is not necessary for Democratic voters to vote separately for the delegates (as it is for Republican voters). Be sure that if you must vote separately for the delegates, you do so. Finally, make sure to vote all the way across for the down-ticket candidates on your ballot.

Let’s all do a bang-up job for Hillary tomorrow and bring home a huge delegate count for Hillary.  The more delegates she has, the stronger she is for all of us.

Here are a few things you can do even as late as today to help out: donate, volunteer to canvass and to make calls.
