Hillary's debate performance has paid off in the form of very positive new polls.
Is this Trump's real strategy in hinting that he may bring up Bill Clinton's infidelities in the next debates?

Looks like this is the end for Next Magazine, a staple in gay publishing in NYC for as long as I've been here. (I was bummed when HX disappeared years and years ago, and still sometimes slip and call Next by that name.)
Next is one of the last in a long short tradition of gay publications, stretching back to Bob Mizer's Physique Pictorial and being heavily influenced by such '70s magazines like After Dark and Michael's Thing.
How long will gay print magazines last? 1951 through ... ? Out and The Advocate, as well as Attitude, have had their ups and downs. The death of Next—L.A.'s outstanding Frontiers and other publications are also caught up in this—is just another step toward the end.
It's already been well-established that Donald Trump trucked with dictators and despots, and admires tyrants like Vladimir Putin. He views totalitarianism as strength in leadership.
Now, Newsweek's Kurt Eichenwald is exposing Trump's ties to Fidel Castro. It's a friendly working relationship at least some people, especially in Florida, might find troubling.
It was also blatantly illegal, since his business dealings in Cuba were in defiance of U.S. law:
A company controlled by Donald Trump, the Republican nominee for president, secretly conducted business in Communist Cuba during Fidel Castro’s presidency despite strict American trade bans that made such undertakings illegal, according to interviews with former Trump executives, internal company records and court filings.
Documents show that the Trump company spent a minimum of $68,000 for its 1998 foray into Cuba at a time when the corporate expenditure of even a penny in the Caribbean country was prohibited without U.S. government approval. But the company did not spend the money directly. Instead, with Trump’s knowledge, executives funneled the cash for the Cuba trip through an American consulting firm called Seven Arrows Investment and Development Corp. Once the business consultants traveled to the island and incurred the expenses for the venture, Seven Arrows instructed senior officers with Trump’s company—then called Trump Hotels & Casino Resorts—how to make it appear legal by linking it after the fact to a charitable effort.
The payment by Trump Hotels came just before the New York business mogul launched his first bid for the White House, seeking the nomination of the Reform Party. On his first day of the campaign, he traveled to Miami, where he spoke to a group of Cuban-Americans, a critical voting bloc in the swing state. Trump vowed to maintain the embargo and never spend his or his companies’ money in Cuba until Fidel Castro was removed from power.
There's plenty of impeachable stuff on Trump already waiting or set in motion. He wins, it's President Pence within a year.
