Commentary on Hillary's Emails

State Department Inspector General’s report demolishes Hillary’s excuses about her private email server  "The 83 page State Department Inspector General’s report on Hillary Clinton’s private email server puts the lie to many of Hillary Clinton’s repeated claims about her unprecedented private email server. No, it was not permitted, and she never asked. And if she had asked, she would have been told it was not permitted. Even the Washington Post editorial board is appalled, publishing a collective rebuke titled, “Clinton’s inexcusable, willful disregard for the rules.” . . .
. . . "As Roger L. Simon notes this morning, the person who could realty move this issue forward is Bernie Sanders, who is on record as being sick and tired of the “damn emails.' ” . . .
Only sexist pigs would dare find fault with her actions 
"Still, Democrats hold to the official party line that no matter how disappointing their presumptive nominee’s negatives appear to be, Donald Trump’s are worse. " 

Hanging Hillary with her own ugly words   "Donald Trump would do himself and this country a huge favor if he would do to Hillary what the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth did to John Kerry in the 2004 election: bring together the people from her past who know the off-stage, off-camera, hard-focus Hillary, and let them share with America their experiences with this woman who would be queen." . . . 

. . .Hillary, angered over the time it was taking the children to find the eggs, reportedly stormed up to a state trooper and raged, "When are they going to get those f****** ree-tards out of here?!"
And the article refers to her general character with this: 
Sorry for the crude language in this piece, but it is necessary, just as those troopers and Secret Service agents accurately quoting the foul-mouthed Hillary Clinton is, to show how the woman is simply too profane, hateful, angry, and unseemly to occupy the Oval Office.

Tom Cotton Verbally Dismembers Harry Reid On The Senate Floor

The Hayride  "If you haven’t seen the video of the tongue-lashing that Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) delivered to Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid after the passage of the National Defense Authorization Act, we have it for you.

"Cotton starts off talking about how, as a junior senator who gets some of the lousy jobs in the body, he has to preside over the senate in the early mornings and he doesn’t have a problem doing so other than that he’s forced to hear Reid deliver his speeches – “I am forced to listen to the bitter, vulgar, incoherent ramblings of the minority leader.”

"It doesn’t get any nicer from there. This is serious drop-the-mic stuff."

"And here was Harry Reid’s response, which is a bit understated for him – you almost get the impression that his head is spinning after the rhetorical beatdown Cotton laid down on him…"

American Silliness 5/25/2016

New York City Lets You Choose From 31 Different Gender Identities
. . . "The city does not provide definitions of the various gender identities, but TheDC was able to define several of them from glossaries provided online by the University of Wisconsin and the University of California Berkeley.
"Someone who identifies as “genderqueer,” for example, is a “person whose gender identity is neither man nor woman, is between or beyond genders, or is some combination of genders.” The list does go on. . . 
. . . 
"If someone is “pangender,” their “gender identity is comprised of all or many gender expressions.”
"The full list of gender identities can be viewed online in a document provided by the city’s Commission on Human Rights."

Dingler Cross memorial for fallen veterans back up after public outcry  "The 79 white, handmade crosses posted on public property along state Highway 92 in Hiram, Ga., were meant to represent the 79 Paulding County residents who died in America’s wars, according to town officials. 
"But the crosses were abruptly taken down last Friday after someone called Hiram City Hall questioning whether the soldiers were all Christian."  Hat tip to Lucianne for several of these posts.

Bathroom Wars: Target boycott has directly cost company $9.2 billion in market cap to date

Sierra Rayne  "There is some confusion and denial in the mainstream media over the real impacts of the ongoing boycott of Target (TGT) because of its controversial bathroom policies allowing men into women's rooms and vice versa, which came into force April 19.
"The left-of-center Associated Press released a superficial report last week on the causes of Target's current financial situation:. . . 
. . . "The likely impact of the consumer boycott against Target can be determined by comparing its market cap performance for equal periods before and after the transgender policy came into force against that of its competitors.  As the graph below shows, Target's normalized market cap has declined far more than any of its competitors since April 19." 

Is this fight a silly cause?  . . . "As society “evolves,” there comes the call for an ever increasing suppression of moral laws, limits, and now restrictive identities.

"That is why the bathroom wars are so very important.  “Transgenderism” has nothing to do with “rights” and everything to do with changing the very concept of man.  If this battle isn’t important, why is the government (and the media) doing everything possible to force anti-moral bathroom diktats down the throats of Americans?  If this battle is of such little consequence, then why are the candidates doing everything possible to exclude these issues from the debate narrative?  The ruthless ferocity of the war only confirms that moral issues are powerful forces to be reckoned with inside society." . . .


Ann Coulter  "In a campaign season with lots of surprises, how's this for a wild prediction? It would never happen, of course, but pull up a chair and indulge me. 

"My premise is, President Obama hates Hillary Clinton and always has. Why? 
(1) Because everyone hates Hillary; (2) Obama has special reasons for hating her based on the things she has done and said; (3) His senior adviser, Valerie Jarrett, also hates Hillary, so, if by some accident, Obama wakes up one day not hating Hillary, Jarrett is there to say, Oh yes you do! (4) Obama adores his vice president, Joe Biden; (5) He knows that Hillary can't beat Trump. 

"Obama must be having withdrawal symptoms as his second term draws to a close. If he were Reagan, he'd just want to go home and chop wood. But he's not Reagan. The most powerful man in the universe is about to become just some schmuck in an airport. And he's got Valerie Jarrett chirping in his ear, You need to protect your legacy! 

"Who more perfectly encapsulates white privilege than Hillary Clinton? Hers was a charmed political life. She rose to political power in the draft of her husband, was given infinite breaks, then ruthlessly fought Obama for the nomination, long after it was clear she was not the Democrats' choice in 2008. 

"Obama resented her campaign and resented Bill Clinton's not-so-coded racism. " . . .

Obamas lease $4.3 million home in tony DC neighborhood - with nine bedrooms, an exercise room, and even a butler's pantry . . .

UK Daily Mail

Distinguished address: The home in Kalorama puts the Obamas in one of the capital's most upscale neighborhoods

"President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama have leased a spectacular 8,200 square-foot home in one of DC's most elegant neighborhoods as their first post-White House dwelling.

"The $4.3 million home features plenty of room for the Obamas to stretch out – with separate dressing rooms and his and her bathrooms, entertaining space, and a tranquil garden.

"The home was built in 1928 and features nine bedrooms and eight and a half baths, according to Politico, which first reported the address.

"The Obama's area leasing the house from Joe Lockhart, who served as press secretary to Bill Clinton.

. . . 
"The Obamas have made the unusual decision to stay in the capital because they do not want to interrupt their younger daughter Sasha’s time at high school.

"The 14-year-old is a student at Sidwell Friends School, where fees are $39,360 a year. Her elder sister will be in the middle of a year off when they leave the White House. She is then going to study at Harvard.

"Obama said earlier this year: 'Transferring someone in the middle of high school - tough.' " Videos

Father And Son About To Be Beheaded, Then ‘Angel Of Death’ Reigns Down Hell

US Herald
“Through binoculars, the soldiers could see that the crowd were terrified and many were in tears…”

"Such was the case at an ISIS execution of a father and son in a Syria-Turkey border town. The ISIS was there to “cleanse” the community of Shiites, and anybody else who would not kowtow to their sick whim.
"The crowd stood there as the leader of the ISIS group called for the man and his 8-year old son to be brought before him.
“ 'He began addressing the crowd and slapping the father and his son around the head and kicking them onto the floor.” The ISIS animal had already taken out, and was brandishing, his beheading knife and preparing to get to work at decapitating the father.
"That is when the executioner was dropped. “Everyone just stared in confusion,” reported a witness to the event.
"Next the ISIS animal’s two armed guards were dropped. A British Special Air Service Sniper had been positioned to stop this display of animalistic behavior by ISIS—“three kills with three bullets. It was a good day’s work.”
"Amazingly, ISIS is still running around the desert alive and well. With all the air power and military might of the United States, we can’t manage to stop this bloodthirsty gang of thugs.
"Oh, that’s right! President Obama doesn’t want to stop ISIS. He wants to import them here."

Hillary’s Sputtering Campaign


"It is difficult to imagine quite how the former secretary of state could use the war on terror, Russian reset, Syria, or Benghazi to reassure the public."

Victor Davis Hanson  "This year was supposed to be Hillary Clinton’s “turn,” after her humiliating loss in 2008 to Barack Obama. She has paid her dues as secretary of state for Obama. And the apparent Republican presidential nominee, Donald J. Trump, is written off by most pundits as a buffoon without a chance in the general election. Yet, Clinton’s campaign continues to be dismal, and is getting worse — to the point where the socialist Bernie Sanders polls better against Trump than does Hillary Clinton. How can that be? 

"At least eight reasons come to mind — several of them relating to Clinton’s innate character flaws and past scandals." . . .

In Hillary’s case, she does not seem to want to run on Ben Rhodes’s foreign policy, Jonathan Gruber’s Obamacare, Lois Lerner’s IRS, Lisa Jackson’s EPA, Eric Holder’s Justice Department, or Barack Obama’s racial healing. And yet she needs Obama’s hard-left base. So far she has rejected her 2008 Annie Oakley, Reagan-Democrat schtick, gambling that her Black Lives (alone) Matter and transgenderism pandering can ensure that she will match Obama’s historic share of the minority vote. But so far it seems just as likely that she will lose more voters among the white working class than she can lease from Obama’s core. 

Congressman: Iran’s Treatment of U.S. Sailors Much Worse Than Reported

NiceDeb  . . . "Rep. Randy Forbes (R., Va.) told the Washington Free Beacon that the classified details are currently being withheld by the Obama administration and it could be awhile before the American public gets a full accounting of the incident.
“I’ve had a full classified briefing” from military officials, Forbes told the Free Beacon. “It could be as long as a year before we actually get that released.”
Details of the abduction are likely to start an uproar in the nation and call into question the Obama administration’s handling of the incident, which many experts say violated international and maritime law.
“I think that when the details actually come out, most Americans are going to be kind of taken aback by the entire incident, both how Iran handled it and how we handled it,” Forbes disclosed. “I think that’s going to be huge cause for concern for most Americans. That’s why I’ve encouraged members of Congress to get that briefing so they do know exactly what did take place.”

American Silliness: Transgender Teacher Gets $60,000 After Co-Workers Wouldn’t Call Her ‘They’

"Well, if you can identify as a man or a woman, can you identify as multiple people or genders at the same time? Is there any end to how one might extend the stupidity?
A “transmasculine” teacher at an Oregon elementary school has been awarded $60,000 by her school district as compensation for harassment she claims to have suffered on the job, including being referred to by the wrong pronoun.
According to The Oregonian, Leo Soell was born a woman, but now prefers to identify as “transmasculine” and “genderqueer,” meaning she does not consider herself to be male or female. After getting breast cancer in late 2014, she had her breasts amputated to create a more masculine appearance and changed her name to Leo. Once she returned from medical school in May, 2015, Soell was fully public with her gender-neutral identity.

'I'm not with her': why women are wary of Hillary Clinton

As a whole, women support Clinton over Trump and Sanders, but 49% of women from across the political spectrum give her an unfavorable rating

The Guardian

Hillary Clinton

. . . “ 'Some women I encounter act as if I’ve betrayed some kind of secret society,” says Changa. “I reject this brand of feminism. I’m not only voting for my gender, I’m voting for other issues.”
"For the first time in its history, America is close to electing a female president, yet many women from across the political spectrum don’t like Clinton.
"It’s true that, as a whole, women support her more than both Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders, but that support is not nearly as overwhelming as black voter support was for Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012. Millennial women, for example,prefer Sanders to Clinton and 49% of American women give the secretary of state an unfavorable rating." . . .
