LBN- Special Report- Monday


Data obtained by the DRUDGE REPORT shows presidential underdog Donald Trump outperforming Republican 2012 election results in Florida. Mitt Romney went into Election Day down 161,000 in absentee ballots and early voting. He ended up losing the state by 74,000. This time, in a dramatic surprise twist, Trump is only down 32,500! And Republicans tend to outvote Democrats on Election Day in Florida.

*Emails Warrant No New Action Against Hillary Clinton, F.B.I. Director Says:

The F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, told Congress on Sunday that he had seen no evidence in a recently discovered trove of emails to change his conclusion that Hillary Clinton should face no charges over her handling of classified information. Mr. Comey’s announcement, just two days before the election, was an effort to clear the cloud of suspicion he had publicly placed over her presidential campaign late last month when he alerted Congress that the F.B.I. would examine the emails.

*Markets Jump After FBI Clears Clinton:

U.S. stock futures climbed, the Mexican peso gained new life, and markets in Asia rallied overnight after news came that the FBI again concluded Hillary Clinton should not face criminal liability over her email use. FBI Director James Comey’s Oct. 28 announcement about new emails sent stocks plummeting and markets tumbling amid fears Donald Trump would win the presidency. That all changed Sunday, however, with an upturn in S&P 500 futures and a surge in U.S. equity index futures as Clinton was cleared of wrongdoing. In New York early Monday, Dow Jones Industrial Average futures indicated the benchmark was set to jump more than 200 points at its opening. Foreign markets also rallied at the news, with the Mexican peso jumping 2.1 percent.

*Trump: FBI Won’t Let Clinton ‘Get Away With Terrible Crimes’:

Donald Trump did not take kindly to FBI Director James Comey’s announcement that investigators’ newly discovered emails do not incriminate Hillary Clinton. At a Sunday night rally in Michigan, the Republican nominee told a crowd of supporters that the FBI would not let Clinton “get away with her terrible crimes,” dismissing Comey’s conclusion. He expressed skepticism about the FBI’s investigation, hinting that the short time frame is a sign of foul play. “You can’t review 650,000 emails in eight days. You can’t do it, folks,” he said, to cheers of “lock her up” from the crowd. “Right now she is being protected by a rigged system. It’s a totally rigged system,” he said.

*Janet Reno, Attorney General Under Bill Clinton, Dies:

The first woman to serve as America’s attorney general, Janet Reno, died early Monday at the age of 78. She passed away in her Miami home after a long battle with Parkinson’s disease. Reno served in the White House under Bill Clinton from 1993 to 2001. During her tenure, she oversaw the conviction of Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman, who bombed for the World Trade Center in 1993. She also oversaw the prosecutions of Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols for their parts in the Oklahoma City federal building bombing in 1995.


*LBN-INVESTIGATES: Approximately one third of the deaths associated with cocaine use are caused by the direct pharmacological effects of the drug itself. The vast majority of deaths related to cocaine are caused by homicide, suicide, and motor vehicle collisions as a result of the drug’s mind-altering properties.

*Obama Mocks Trump Twitter Ban:

President Barack Obama took a jab at Donald Trump on Sunday after reports the Republican nominee had been barred from using his own Twitter account. “Apparently his campaign has taken away his Twitter,” he told a crowd at a Florida rally, referring to a New York Times report released Sunday. According to the report, Trump’s aides took complete control of his Twitter just days before Election Day. “In the last two days, they had so little confidence in his self-control, they said: ‘We’re just going to take away your Twitter.’ Now, if somebody can’t handle a Twitter account, they can’t handle the nuclear codes,” Obama said. “If somebody starts tweeting at three in the morning because SNL made fun of you, then you can’t handle the nuclear codes.” Throughout his campaign, Trump has frequently drawn scrutiny for his unfettered Twitter rants, which often resort to all-caps and reflect angry outbursts over things irrelevant to the presidential campaign.

*LBN-BUSINESS INSIDER:   ***Wall Street bonuses are expected to decline for the third consecutive year, reflecting a period of busted mergers, limited trading activity and muted hedge fund returns. The payouts are projected to be from 5 to 10 percent lower this year, according to an annual report to be released on Monday by Johnson Associates, a compensation consulting firm. Bonuses fell about the same amount last year from 2014. The projection confirms a report last month by the New York State comptroller that said firms set aside 7 percent less for bonuses through the first half of this year compared with last year.

*LBN-HOLLYWOOD INSIDER:   ***Behind the beige walls that enclose the Warner Bros. lot here, Kevin Tsujihara has been ruminating on perception versus reality — a classic Hollywood subject onscreen, but one that the studio is now experiencing in real life. Mr. Tsujihara, the Warner Bros. chief executive, is on track to deliver record operating profit this year, with film leading the way. Last week, Time Warner said his division — home to Batman, Clint Eastwood, Bugs Bunny, “The Middle” and — had income of $433 million, a 12 percent increase from a year earlier. Its corporate sibling HBO, by comparison, with $530 million in profit, grew 2 percent. Yet many people consider Warner Bros. a troubled operation, a notion that Mr. Tsujihara thinks is rooted in an under appreciation of the studio’s wide-ranging businesses and the lingering effect of film pipeline problems that it has moved past.

*LBN-COMMENTARY by Thomas Sowell:   ***There seem to be fewer bumper stickers this year than in previous presidential election years. People may decide to vote for one of these candidates, but apparently they are not proud of their choice.   ***It is astonishing that some people think that the answer to the problems of ObamaCare is to go to a “single payer” system. But”single payer” is just another way of saying “government monopoly.” Does anyone pay attention to how government monopolies operate — from the local DMV to Veterans Administration hospitals?   ***Politics has turned the lofty ideal of equality into the ugly reality of resentments of other people’s achievements — and a feeling that the world owes you something, while you owe nobody anything, not even common decency.   ***Why should the fate of the economy depend on the guesswork of the Federal Reserve — and the guesswork of the stock market about what the Federal Reserve will guess?

Sources caught the Titanic-sized TV cook at a White House dinner, where shocked eyewitnesses reported that she struggled to make it up the stairs into President Obama’s recent state dinner.
