    "Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump...came to the stage at Hofstra University sharing the burden of being the best-known and least liked candidates to run for the White House" as reported by Janet Hook, Peter Nicholas and Reid J. Epstein in the Wall Street Journal. The WSJ article also reported that Mrs. Clinton has a 1.5 percentage point lead over Trump and that Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson is at 7.2% and that Green Party candidate Jill Stein is at 2.3%.
     As pointed out previously in this paper, among the distinguishing features of the Hillary vs. Donald contest is that, related to the reality that most Americans can't stand them, is the ironic fact that, when they accuse each other of lying, which is often, they are telling the truth. Donald lies about his taxes, about his history of discriminating against African-Americans seeking to rent apartments in buildings owned by him and or his father, about "Trump University" etc., etc. Hillary continues to lie about her decision to privatize much of her email correspondence when she was Secretary of State. Among the few compelling points made by Trump in the "debate" was his reference to Hillary's complaints about alleged foreign government (Russia?) hacking into Democratic National Committee emails. Trump correctly pointed out that what was really upsetting to Mrs. Clinton is that the hacked DNC emails documented the Clinton machine machinations to make certain that the Democratic National Convention did not nominate Bernie Sanders for president. Mrs. Clinton claimed that her decision to set up a private email account for State Department correspondence was a "mistake". Previous U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell, understandably angry over Mrs. Clinton's claims that she had gotten some sort of email privatizing okay from Powell, has claimed that he had advise her to the contrary. .
    Among the patterns employed by politicians who tend to lie is to avoid lying all the time, and, in that regard, telling the truth at times. Persistent lying renders the perpetrator predictable, diminishing his or her credibility with the voters. And so some reporters compare Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Trump in quantitative terms, i.e. who has told more lies. It appears to be Trump.
   With Hillary Clinton and me, however, it's both political and personal. The Clintons' attacks on me actually began in December, 1992 after I managed to get the facts of the Chinese Communist Genocide in the formerly independent nation of Tibet to President-elect Bill Clinton via my telephone conversations with - and faxed articles to - Bill Clinton's secretary Betty M. Currie (some years later involuntarily very famous during the Monica Lewinsky drama). Bill Clinton, his Secretary of State Warren Christopher and his Communications Chief George Stephanopoulos responded by burying the documents, including several UP FRONT News articles describing some of the gruesome tortures inflicted by the Chinese Communists on Tibetan monks and nuns. And when I was invited to attend (and presumably testify at) the January 19, 1993 hearing of the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations on President-elect Bill Clinton's nomination of Mr. Christopher to be Secretary of State I was arrested. Bill Clinton & Co., already beholden to the mega-corporations of the China Lobby who extract gazillions in profits from their investments in China, were not about to let the facts of China's Genocide in Tibet become public - e.g. with my testimony before the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations.
  The Clinton Administration attempted to buy me off by offering me a plea bargain if I would admit that I broke the law by coming to the Committee hearing. Citing my Constitutional my rights, I turned down the plea bargain offer and went to trial and on July 26, 1993 I was acquitted (Case # 1993 CMD 000772) by a jury before Judge Leo Satterfield in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia, Criminal Division.
  Hillary Clinton continued the attacks on me when she became a U.S. Senator. She refused me constituent assistance, had an aide send a defamatory letter about me to my brother Jim and placed me under surveillance. Her political vassals in Staten Island such as NYS Assemblymember Matthew Titone refused to assist me on constituent matters. And when, in consideration of the Clintons silence on the Tibet Genocide issue and Mrs. Clinton's unsatisfactory legislative record on issues relating to the poor and homeless, I announced my U.S. Federal Elections Commission-registered Democratic write-in candidacy for the U.S. Senate against Mrs. Clinton, the response was intimidating.
  Among Hillary's pals in the Democratic Party machine-run North Shore Staten Island is the very powerful NYS Senator Diane Savino (D.-S.I./Bklyn.) Ms. Savino's Chief of Staff was - and is - Robert Cataldo. Because of a serious constituent matter warranting Ms. Savino's intervention I contacted her office and was given an appointment with Mr. Cataldo, whom I had never met but who certainly knew about my already media-reported candidacy for the U.S. Senate against Hillary Clinton.
  Inasmuch as literally thousands of people, in Staten Island and beyond, and plenty of reporters (especially at the multi-billionaire Donald Newhouse's Staten Island Advance) know the details of what occurred at the appointment I will only summarize here. During the several minutes I was with Robert Cataldo in Ms. Savino's Staten Island district office, Cataldo went berserk. He backed me up against a wall, bellowing threats of violence and arrest, accusing me of incest and necrophilia, i.e. having sexual relations with my late mother, and spit at me. This psychosis went on for several minutes before I was able to escape without physical injury.
  The entire attack took place without witnesses - inasmuch as Cataldo, anticipating my scheduled arrival, had emptied Ms. Savino's office of all staff. Mafia tactics!
  Savino's response, when I subsequently spoke to her on the phone, was to say, "Oh. don't worry about Cataldo." She has been protecting this psychopath ever since.
  And when the then politically controlled 120th precinct refused to take my complaint against Cataldo, I contacted an honest cop I know, Sgt. Det. Al Fiore, who in his capacity then with the NYPD's intelligence unit, knows me and knows politics, who, at my request, came to S.I. and filed what is NYPD complaint #2006-120-8244 for me.
  And when Staten Island Democratic Party official (and Council of Jewish Organizations President) Mendy Mirocznik on April 23, 2015 told me that Robert Cataldo had committed a similar crime against another victim and added that "Robert Cataldo is a member of the Sicilian mob", it made it necessary for me to contact the FBI. I had already contacted the U.S. Department of Justice via then U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District Loretta Lynch by phone, pursuant to a detailed telephone conversation with Ms. Lynch's assistant, sent her a report by email. Following my conversation with Mendy Mirocznik, while I was in Washington, I contacted the FBI and spoke by phone with a staffer in the D.C. office and sent the requested report by email. The FBI replied, advising me that, inasmuch as the incident occurred in New York, I should contact that NYC office. I did so and a detailed report has been sent there by email.
 In the 1930's much of the American political establishment, including folks in FDR's Democratic Party, covered up the developing Nazi Genocide against the Jews. The Nazis had plenty of corporate friends in America, who saw Adolf Hitler as a bulwark against the Soviet Communists.
 Genocides and corruption survive thrive via coverups. The Savino/Cataldo/Mafia NYPD complaint #2006-120-8244 coverup includes at least one "house of worship", St. Philips ("No Apostrophe") Baptist Church, in Staten Island, where the Pastor Rev. Tony Baker, who knows all the details, is a pal of Ms. Savino and Robert Cataldo and who, along with one of his deacons, John McBeth, has harassed me on several occasions
 The Dalai Lama has said that over one million Tibetans have died as a direct consequence of the Chinese occupation.
 That is Genocide!
  I don't expect Hillary, with her ties to the China Lobby, to call for self-determination for Tibet (as Bernie Sanders announced in his May 21, 2015 email to me).
  Donald Trump often criticizes China's trade war against the U.S. With his words of praise for dictators, e.g. Saddam Hussein and Vladimir Putin , I don't anticipate Trump calling for independence for Tibet from totalitarian-ruled China.
  The Green Party Press Secretary has sent me a copy of the Party's platform, which calls for "national self determination."
  He has assured me that the Tibet issue, involving both self-determination and Genocide will be considered by the Green Party's Platform Committee.
  There are lots of Tibetan-Americans registered to vote. Most, if not all of them, want China out of Tibet.
   If and when Jill Stein confirms what I assume to be her uncompromising opposition to governments that practice Genocide and calls for self-determination for Tibet, which I will of course report in UP FRONT News, her poll numbers will rise.
