Sencillamente porque López Bolaños protagonizó miles de programas de “humor blanco” sin malas palabras, ni violencia, porque supo llegar al corazón de los niños como pocos lo han hecho. Un narrador de UNIVISIÓN dijo que mucha gente interpretó las solemnes ceremonias como “un bálsamo reparador” que pudiera sanar la tragedia de la violencia y la muerte que azota al pueblo mexicano. Aún siguen desaparecidos los 43 estudiantes normalistas en el Estado de Guerrero.En su reciente visita a Turquía el papa Francisco meditó en la Mezquita Azul de Estambul en su afán de acercar el cristianismo y el islamismo. Durante su visita se detuvo unos minutos en la histórica basílica de Santa Sofía que otros tiempos fue una de las iglesias más grandes y poderosas del mundo. Esta iglesia fue convertida en mezquita tras la toma de Constantinopla por los turcos otomanos en 1453 y se transformó en museo en 1934 durante el régimen de Kemal Ataturk. Francisco también se reunió con Bartolomé I patriarca de la Iglesia Ortodoxa y en un gesto de compañerismo cristiano éste le besó la cabeza al papa.Se dice que el poder no sólo corrompe, sino que también desgasta. Cuando Michelle Bachelet asumió la presidencia de Chile hace 8 meses un 76 por ciento de los chilenos tenía una buena imagen de ella.

La inmigración puertorriqueña se caracteriza por tener gente joven, dinámica, profesionales y pequeños empresarios. En este año más de un millón de puertorriqueños se han establecido en el centro y norte de la península de la Florida. Los puertorriqueños por ley federal no necesitan visas para visitar o residir en Estados Unidos.A pesar de las leyes que regulan los viajes de los ciudadanos de Estados Unidos para ir a Cuba, recientemente el crucero académico “M.V. Explorer” ha visitado la isla por cinco días llevando más de 600 estudiantes procedentes de 17 países. Durante su estadía en la isla, los universitarios tuvieron la oportunidad de visitar lugares históricos, centros educativos, y participar de conferencias y conciertos. Una encuesta general entre los visitantes reveló que la mayoría está a favor de normalizar las relaciones diplomáticas y levantar el embargo económico de Estados Unidos contra Cuba vigente desde 1962. En Miami varios comentaristas han criticado el viaje diciendo que ha sido una oportunidad para la propaganda oficial del régimen cubano.La situación económica de España está marcada por el creciente número de personas sin trabajo y el poco crecimiento económico del país. Recientemente miles de españoles salieron a las calles de Madrid y otras ciudades en una marcha “por la dignidad” nacional. Los participantes, en su mayoría jóvenes, dijeron que “la austeridad y la corrupción” tienen asfixiado al país. En Madrid cientos de manifestantes se dirigieron a la emblemática Puerta del Sol agitando banderas republicanas.María Corina Machado, diputada venezolana y una de las voces más críticas del gobierno de Nicolás Maduro, ha dicho que responderá a las preguntas que le hagan los fiscales chavistas pese a que puede ser arrestada el día de su comparecencia. María Corina tiene 47 años y es miembro de la Coalición Opositora Mesa de Unidad Democrática y hace pocos meses fue destituida de su asiento en la Asamblea Nacional. Durante las protestas que tuvieron lugar entre febrero y mayo 43 personas perdieron sus vidas. “Este gobierno es ilegítimo y tendrá que salir”, dijo la ex diputada en una demostración reciente.En Kano una ciudad del norte de Nigeria un ataque terrorista en una mezquita durante la oración de los viernes arrojó un saldo de 120 personas muertas.

Et à la fin de l’émission, le combat de Rowan Williams et Justin Welby contre l’esclavage moderne.[Episcopal News Service – Stone Town, Zanzibar] La Cathédrale anglicane Christ Church est un symbole de la commémoration des hommes, femmes et enfants enlevés en Afrique de l’Est et vendus en esclavage. Structure imposante en pierre juste à l’extérieur des rues et coursives étroites de la cité historique, la cathédrale rappelle aussi le rôle de l’Église anglicane dans l’abolition de la traite des esclaves et sa contribution à la diffusion du christianisme en Afrique.Désignée Site du patrimoine mondial par l’UNESCO en 2000, Stone Town accueille plus de 100 000 visiteurs chaque année, dont la plupart visitent la cathédrale où des guides proposent des visites de l’édifice construit sur l’ancien marché aux esclaves.A l’automne 2013, le Diocèse anglican de Zanzibar qui fait partie de l’Église anglicane de Tanzanie, a démarré, en partenariat avec le World Monuments Fund-Britain, un projet visant à préserver la cathédrale et à créer un centre de commémoration de l’abolition de l’esclavage ainsi qu’à éduquer le public sur l’esclavage dans ses formes modernes.« Le projet préservera un monument hautement significatif et favorisera l’accès à l’un des endroits les plus importants du patrimoine d’Afrique de l’Est » a déclaré l’Évêque de Zanzibar Michael Hafidh, dans un message électronique. « Raconter le récit de ce sombre chapitre de l’histoire de la région d’une manière ouverte et factuelle aidera à combler les écarts sociaux et ethniques et à promouvoir la tolérance, la réconciliation et une société inclusive ».Le Centre du Patrimoine a ouvert le 15 juin avec l’exposition sur le commerce des esclaves en Afrique de l’Est. Photo : Dan Barlow/Diocèse de ZanzibarLe Centre du patrimoine racontera l’histoire de la traite des esclaves en Afrique de l’Est, en anglais et en swahili, afin de favoriser le dialogue interconfessionnel, d’éduquer les touristes, de combler les écarts sociaux et ethniques et d’enseigner aux enfants la tolérance et la réconciliation visant à promouvoir une société inclusive.« Le projet de création du centre du patrimoine… en le rendant accessible aux écoliers, qui sont les futurs leaders du pays, favorisera le dialogue et la compréhension interconfessionnelle et intercommunale » nous écrit l’Évêque Hafidh dont la mère était chrétienne et le père musulman.Le Diocèse de Zanzibar doit encore lever des fonds pour rénover la flèche. Photo : Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceL’Union européenne et le Fonds des États-Unis pour la préservation culturelle, entre autres donateurs, grands ou petits, ont apporté une aide financière pour le projet de restauration de la cathédrale. Exception faite de la flèche, la restauration est achevée.Le centre du patrimoine a ouvert le 15 juin. Avec une exposition sur le traite des esclaves en Afrique de l’Est qui retrace l’histoire de l’esclavage et de la traite des esclaves, en commençant par la capture dans des lieux comme le Congo, le Kenya, le Tanganyika, en passant par le transport, les acheteurs et les vendeurs, le labeur dans les plantations d’épices et le voyage à l’étranger, jusqu’à la liberté et les séquelles de l’esclavage qui demeurent à Zanzibar, archipel d’îles de 1,3 million d’habitants, la majorité d’entre eux musulmans.« Zanzibar était un important point de transbordement pour les esclaves venant du continent qui étaient vendus sur le marché aux esclaves de Zanzibar aux propriétaires de plantations arabes ou swahilis pour travailler dans les plantations d’épices sur l’île de Zanzibar ou sur l’île voisine de Pemba » nous dit Derek Peterson, professeur d’histoire et d’études africaines à l’Université du Michigan et membre de l’Église épiscopale St. Andrew à Ann Arbor. « Ou parfois ils étaient également vendus en grand nombre aux trafiquants qui les emmenaient autour du Cap de Bonne-Espérance jusqu’au Brésil ».La traite des esclaves passa en Afrique de l’Est après que le parlement britannique eut voté de mettre fin à la traite des esclaves en Afrique de l’Ouest et eut ultérieurement positionné des escadres de la Navy pour intercepter les navires d’esclaves en chemin vers le Nouveau Monde, faisant monter le prix des esclaves, poursuit Derek Peterson, qui a précédemment enseigné à l’Université de Cambridge en Angleterre. La demande pour le travail des esclaves était élevée aux Caraïbes et au Brésil, pays qui n’a supprimé l’esclavage qu’à la fin du 19ème siècle.En plus de la partie à la mémoire des esclaves qui étaient amenés sur le marché, la cathédrale commémore également le travail de l’explorateur et missionnaire écossais David Livingstone et ses efforts pour abolir la traite des esclaves.« La cathédrale elle-même s’érige comme monument en faveur de l’abolition de l’esclavage ; l’Église anglicane de Zanzibar est issue d’une longue campagne contre la traite des esclaves en Afrique de l’Est inspirée par les prises de position de David Livingstone » nous confie Derek Peterson.« Il [Livingstone] se rend à Cambridge et fait un discours célèbre à la Regent House au cours duquel il invite une génération de jeunes Britanniques à aller en Afrique centrale sauver les Africains des dégradations causées par les trafiquants d’esclaves arabes et swahilis » nous apprend Derek Peterson.Statues d’esclaves enchaînés les uns aux autres par le cou servent de rappel des atrocités subies par les hommes, les femmes et les enfants qui ont été capturés et vendus en esclavage en Afrique de l’Est. Photo : Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News Service« Le discours idéaliste de David Livingstone fait naître toute une mission au sein de l’UMCA peuplée d’étudiants anglicans entreprenants à l’âme noble d’Oxford et Cambridge et d’autres universités britanniques qui y adhèrent et créent cette mission « Universities Mission to Central Africa » dont la vocation première est de tracer une voie pour le christianisme et le commerce, qui est ce que David Livingstone voulait promouvoir ».À la suite du discours de David Livingstone des années 1870, la mission UMCA fut lancée à Zanzibar et à l’intérieur du pays qui est aujourd’hui le Malawi, où les missionnaires ouvrirent des postes pour accueillir les esclaves affranchis, certains rachetés par eux et d’autres qu’ils avaient secourus.« Ils forment les premières congrégations missionnaires anglicanes d’évangélisation et deviennent plus tard d’importants émissaires du christianisme dans d’autres parties de l’Afrique de l’Est et des agents de la mission anglicane qui prêchent, traduisent et travaillent au côté des missionnaires britanniques à l’évangélisation » poursuit-il.Les anglicans d’aujourd’hui à Zanzibar retrouvent leurs racines dans ces derniers esclaves affranchis et émancipés, nous confie James Kaleza, secrétaire diocésain auxiliaire, pendant une entrevue à Stone Town en avril.« La plupart des anglicans d’Afrique sont des descendants d’esclaves car leurs ancêtres sont ceux qui furent amenés ici pour y être vendus et qui se retrouvèrent à la mission » nous dit James Kaleza. « Ils sont devenus les premiers anglicans, la plupart sont des autochtones avec des racines qui remontent jusqu’à la traite des esclaves ».Les missionnaires anglicans ont non seulement apporté l’Évangile à Zanzibar et sur le continent, où il a commencé à se développer rapidement, mais ils ont construit des hôpitaux et des écoles où ont été formés des médecins, des infirmières, des professeurs et des prêtres, ajoute-t-il.Le maître-autel de la Cathédrale anglicane Christ Church marque l’emplacement où se tenait autrefois un pilori. Photo : Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceL’Anglicanisme a continué à se développer lentement à Zanzibar jusqu’à la révolution de 1964 lorsque le Sultan de Zanzibar fut évincé du pouvoir et que le nouveau gouvernement reprit les écoles, l’hôpital et le siège central. C’est alors que l’église ferma ses écoles et hôpitaux et déplaça son siège sur le continent. La présence de l’église sur l’île s’affaiblit et ses bâtiments, y compris la cathédrale, tombèrent en ruine, poursuit James Kaleza.« Cela resta ainsi jusque dans les années 1990, lorsque le gouvernement changea de politique et annonça que le secteur privé pouvait continuer à enseigner » dit-il, ajoutant que le Diocèse de Zanzibar restitua son autorité à l’île. « Le diocèse fut réinauguré en 2001 ».La reconsécration de la Cathédrale anglicane Christ Church aura lieu à la fin de cette année ou début 2017.Aujourd’hui, plus de 95 % des habitants de Zanzibar sont musulmans. Parmi les minorités religieuses figurent des païens, des hindous et des chrétiens, 2,5 à 3 %, dont des catholiques romains, des anglicans, des luthériens et des pentecôtistes. Et en dépit de ce que l’on entend habituellement, les arabes n’étaient pas les seuls propriétaires d’esclaves. Il était possible pour des africains noirs de gravir l’échelle sociale et de posséder eux-mêmes des esclaves.L’esclavage en Afrique de l’Est n’était pas semblable au type d’esclavage à grande échelle des plantations des États-Unis, où les gens étaient contraints et forcés de travailler dans des conditions inhumaines, nous dit Derek Peterson.« Les esclaves d’Afrique de l’Est pouvaient également être des artisans, ils pouvaient être des hommes d’affaires, ils pouvaient prendre des emplois de leur propre chef et remettre une partie de leurs bénéfices à leur propriétaire. Mais ils pouvaient être très entreprenants dans leur travail » dit-il, ajoutant que ce genre d’esclavage continua à exister pendant tout le 19ème siècle.La St. Monica Lodge est une pension située dans l’enceinte de la cathédrale qui peut accueillir des groupes. Photo : Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceLe Parlement britannique adopta la Loi d’abolition de l’esclavage en 1833, abolissant la pratique de l’esclavage dans tous les territoires britanniques ; Zanzibar demeura un protectorat britannique gouverné par un sultanat omanais jusqu’à plus d’un siècle plus tard. En 1963, la Grande-Bretagne accorda à Zanzibar sa liberté et une révolution se produisit en janvier 1964. (Plus tard cette année-là, le Tanganyika, ancienne colonie anglaise et allemande, et Zanzibar s’unirent pour former la Tanzanie.)« En 1964, le Sultanat fut renversé par un groupe de militants politiques populistes qui se faisaient appeler les « Africains noirs »… disaient livrer un combat racial et qu’ils renversaient une aristocratie arabe islamique qui avait opprimé les africains noirs » nous explique Derek Peterson. « C’est ainsi que la révolution de 1964 se joua principalement en termes raciaux… et c’est pourquoi aujourd’hui lorsque vous posez des questions sur la traite des esclaves, – à Zanzibar – c’est toujours considéré comme un problème racial ».« Les africains noirs pouvaient et devinrent eux-même des propriétaires d’esclaves en devenant musulmans, s’associant la civilisation et la hiérarchie sur la côte et gravirent l’échelle sociale qui n’était pas répartie par race mais plutôt par progrès de la de civilisation » poursuit Derek Peterson.« La capacité de parler le swahili, de maîtriser les signes de la civilisation, de s’habiller de la façon appropriée… l’économie de l’esclavage en Afrique de l’Est était quelque chose de très complexe où il n’y avait pas une classe de propriétaires d’esclaves clairement définie, pas plus qu’il n’y avait une classe clairement définie d’esclaves. C’était une économie beaucoup plus ouverte et les négociations auxquelles tout un chacun participait formait un groupe social dynamique ».Le centre du patrimoine vise, d’une certaine façon à rétablir les faits et à promouvoir la réconciliation.À Zanzibar, l’histoire de la traite des esclaves a été enseigné d’une manière qui blâme les Arabes et par association l’Islam, nous dit le Rév. Nuhu Sallanya, directeur du Centre de patrimoine culturel, dans un message électronique.« La vérité est qu’en Afrique de l’Est participaient à la traite des esclaves des arabes, des indiens, des africains et des chefs locaux » ajouta-t-il. « Raconter le récit de ce sombre chapitre de l’histoire de la région d’une manière ouverte et factuelle aidera à combler les écarts sociaux et ethniques et à promouvoir la tolérance, la réconciliation et une société inclusive ».– Lynette Wilson est rédacteur et journaliste de l’Episcopal News Service.

Huge All Black defense rocks the Wallabies

first_imgMonday Feb 18, 2008 Huge All Black defense rocks the Wallabies There have been countless times in the past that spectacular, bone-jarring tackles have won matches. When such moments occur at the right time, they can lift a team to hang in there for a vital few more minutes or, if you look at it from the other perspective, big tackles can demoralize the opposition completely.Even more demoralizing however, is when a big tackle is followed by another big tackle, and then another, and then another. When going backwards while on attack your options quickly narrow down to kicking the ball away.Thankfully for the Australians, the kick is a good one, but nothing can take away from a truly tenacious All Black defensive display, as seen here in the Bledisloe Cup a couple of seasons back.

Wallabies snatch second Test victory to level the Lions series

first_imgSaturday Jun 29, 2013 Wallabies snatch second Test victory to level the Lions series The Wallabies came from behind to score a late try and give Christian Leali’ifano a match winning shot at goal with just minutes left in the second Test against the Lions. The Brumbies playmaker calmly slotted the conversion, giving the hosts a 16-15 win.Leai’ifano was knocked out just seconds into the first Test, but today he showed how valuable he may have been last weekend, handly the big game pressure with aplomb to seal the win.In what was somewhat of a reverse of what happened last week, the Lions had a last minute opportunity to kick at goal to win the game, but it was just outside of Leigh Halfpenny’s range.Not quite up there with the thrilling nature of the Brisbane Test, the game was tense and tight with many errors from both sides, but the Lions edged it at halftime, leading 12-9.Another Halfpenny penalty gave them a 15-9 lead and with less than ten minutes left and the Wallabies hot on attack, a penalty was awarded but James Horwill and Will Genia made the big call to go for a scrum close to the line, rather than take the three points.What followed was a famous try for Adam Ashley-Cooper, as the Lions defence finally parted and the first and only try of the game was scored with just a few minutes left on the clock.“It was really important to retain that belief we’ve been working on for so many years. Six points down, there was a lot of frustration out there because possession was letting us down in terms of ball security,” said the Wallabies’ Mr dependable, Ashley-Cooper. “In the end, Test match football is about grinding it out and going to the 80th minute. Fortunately for us, we were able to get the points. The key messages were possession and ball security.“We had to get in the Lions half, hold onto the ball and build pressure. We had to get over the gain line and we knew points would come through penalties or through space.”For neutrals, the series is set up perfectly as it’s now 1-1 with the decider to come next week.“It’s really going to make for a cracking final next week in Sydney,” added Ashley-Cooper.What are your thoughts on the game, and after watching today, how do you see things panning out in Sydney next weekend?  Time: 15:01Credit: ttrugbyvidsADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error British & Irish Lions 2013 Related Articles 235 WEEKS AGO Warren Gatland confirms British & Irish Lions… 399 WEEKS AGO Brian O’Driscoll’s incredible skill at training… 413 WEEKS AGO Montage of Amazing Lions Test series in Australia,… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Electorate still very volatile and undecided – Noonan

For second last seats and last seats I don’t think the polls are accurate predictors yet but they may be if they keep polling into midweek.”Asked if he would you be in agreement with his party colleague and European election candidate Sean Kelly, that it was a mistake to run three Fine Gael candidates in Ireland south, the Minister said he was not involved in the decision making process.“Well I never knew Sean had that view, but Sean and I know that being good soldiers that neither of us will have a say and that management in Dublin will decide these issues at the National Executive and you run with the ticket that’s put around you,” he explained.Asked about the threat posed by Sinn Fein with indications the party could take seats in three constituencies, the Minister said that polls had indicated that for the last year.“Why should anybody be surprised because for 12 months now the national polls are showing Sinn Fein in the high teens and once you get into the high teens you are a contender. Now I don’t know what will happen on the day because these are elections where we haven’t seen these kind of trends before so it may be a different result on Friday – maybe the volatility in the electorate will continue to actually marking the ballot paper or maybe there will be a differential turnout. Maybe what is being polled as support won’t actually turn up and poll on the day, but it is certainly going to be a very interesting election and it will be a small industry analysing the results.”Also speaking in Limerick this week, Sean Kelly said that he has been working very hard on the campaigns and has been “very encouraged by what the Minister had to say that he thinks those who have worked hard are being well received.Speaking on the national party strategy, Mr Kelly echoed the comments of the Minister saying that “strategy is not for us. People would have said that maybe two candidates would have been easier for canvassers but that’s the strategy and we want to get two seats and you jump the fences in front of you and get on with it.” Linkedinlast_img read more

VIDEO PUTS DEMOCRATS ON DEFENSIVE ABOUT DIRTY TRICKS

first_imgVIDEO PUTS DEMOCRATS ON DEFENSIVE ABOUT DIRTY TRICKSBy STEVE EDER and JONATHAN MARTINA Democratic operative, wearing a checkered blue shirt and a tie, spoke calmly, explaining exactly how agents could infiltrate the rallies of Donald J. Trump and cause mayhem among the Republican’s nominee team, his security staff and supporters.Creating an explosive reaction, said the operative, Scott Foval, was “the whole point of it.”Mr. Foval and Robert Creamer, another operative working for the Democratic National Committee, were the unwitting stars of an undercover video released this week in which they and others were captured discussing unseemly tactics like instigating violence at Mr. Trump’s rallies and arranging for fraudulent voting.Sign Up For NYT Now’s Morning Briefing NewsletterHillary Clinton’s campaign and the party committee moved to distance themselves from the behavior described in the videos, and the committee said the two men were no longer assisting it. The party also cast doubt on the veracity of the released video, which was produced by Project Veritas, a conservative group led by the activist James O’Keefe that has been heavily criticized as using deceptive editing.Still, the videos were an embarrassment for Mrs. Clinton at a moment when she is trying to frame Mr. Trump’s claims of a rigged election as nothing more than the fevered dreams of a conspiracy theorist. During Wednesday’s debate Mr. Trump referred to the videos, which together have been viewed more than eight million times on YouTube, as proof of unfair play.And just months after the Democratic chairwoman, Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, was forced out of her post after hacked emails revealed party officials discussing how to damage Senator Bernie Sanders’s presidential bid, the Clinton campaign was again forced on the defensive because of the actions of the party.Campaign finance records show that the Democratic committee made two payments, one in July and another in August, totaling about $64,000 to Mobilize Inc., a Chicago-based firm connected to Mr. Creamer, for “communications consulting.”The committee said that Mr. Creamer was brought on for something relatively tame: “bracketing,” the industry term for when one party holds a dueling event, like a news conference, to draw attention from an opposition event.But in the Project Veritas videos, the tactics described went far beyond mere distraction.Mr. Creamer is not seen on the Project Veritas videos approving or endorsing plans to instigate fights at Trump rallies, but his underling, Mr. Foval, is shown boasting about using unseemly methods, like planting people at the gatherings to agitate the crowd.“Sometimes the crazies bite,” Mr. Foval said. “Sometimes the crazies don’t bite.”Both men and others in the video are seen discussing — or at least nodding along when their undercover interviewers broach the idea — how people could illegally vote. Among the practices described are moving voters across state lines by using cars with the destination state’s plates, and using pay stubs to make illegal immigrants appear to be citizens for voter registration purposes.While the 2016 race has been remarkable for its ugly tone, there is a rich political history of campaigns pushing ethical and legal boundaries to undermine the opposition. In 1972, supporters of Richard M. Nixon, who was even better positioned to win than Mrs. Clinton, unleashed an organized campaign of sabotage: forging letters, disrupting rallies and even flying an airplane over the Democratic National Convention that year with a banner that read “Peace Pot Promiscuity — Vote McGovern.”And during the Florida presidential recount in 2000, George W. Bush’s backers, including the longtime Trump confidant Roger J. Stone, staged the “Brooks Brothers Riot,” when young Republicans were flown into South Florida to disrupt the recount.But it was unclear from the Project Veritas videos whether any of the elaborate plans had been carried out.“We do not believe, or have any evidence to suggest, that the activities articulated in the video actually occurred,” said Donna Brazile, the interim Democratic chairwoman. The Clinton campaign similarly denounced the tactics, while chiding Project Veritas, saying it has “been known to offering misleading video out of context.”Mr. Creamer said in a statement on Wednesday that the “unprofessional and careless hypothetical conversations” caught on hidden camera were regrettable, and he denied that any of the “schemes described” had ever taken place.He told The Chicago Sun-Times that one interviewer had posed as a potential donor and another as a niece of the donor, raising the possibility that people captured in the videos were merely engaging in puffery to pry some money loose.Mr. Foval did not respond to a message seeking comment on Thursday.Mr. Creamer is a longtime Democratic strategist from Chicago, and was a consultant during President Obama’s 2008 and 2012 campaigns. According to White House guest logs, he has been a frequent visitor, usually as part of groups of Democratic activists or while accompanying his wife, Jan Schakowsky, a Democratic congresswoman from Illinois, to social events.The hacked emails of the party committee and of John Podesta, the Clinton campaign chairman, have shown an occasional lack of coordination between the party and Mrs. Clinton’s campaign. They also give a glimpse of Mr. Creamer’s role in party strategy.During the final days of the 2012 campaign, Mr. Creamer co-hosted a call with the Democratic committee’s communications director at the time, Brad Woodhouse, for supporters about the “state of play” in battleground states, according to Mr. Podesta’s emails made public by WikiLeaks.In the late spring of this year, Mr. Creamer was included and referred to on a series of internal Democratic committee emails also published by WikiLeaks. In one email, the party officials discussed having a presence with signs outside the Republican National Committee when Mr. Trump met there with Speaker Paul D. Ryan in May.“Discussed with Creamer, et. al today,” wrote Eric Walker, a communications staff member.Trump rallies were a particularly ripe target, gatherings that have sometimes been marked by violence, as Mr. Trump revved up his supporters with tough talk and protesters tried to disrupt the events.A seasoned field operative who had worked with People for the American Way and Americans United for Change, Mr. Foval and others in the videos claimed credit for orchestrating some high-profile incidents, including when protesters heckled Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin, then a presidential candidate, at the 2015 Iowa State Fair.Mr. Foval appeared to claim that his group had trained a 68-year-old woman who breathes with the help of an oxygen tank and was knocked to the ground during a confrontation at a Trump rally in North Carolina last month.But in a phone interview Thursday, the woman, Shirley Teter, said she attended the rally, which was near her home, on her own accord and had not received any protest training.“The last thing in the world I want to see is Trump getting elected to be our president,” Ms. Teter said. “It is the first time in years that my heart actually ached, and I felt I had to do it.”Find out what you need to know about the 2016 presidential race today, and get politics news updates via Facebook, Twitter and the First Draft newsletter.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
