Hillary is a congenital liar

Politico: "Why Can’t Hillary Stop Fudging the Truth? - Email-gate is only the latest instance in a 25-year habit of dissembling."
Consider just one brief, recent revelatory exchange with Charlie Rose, in which Rose noted (correctly) that FBI Director James Comey had called her “careless,” and Clinton replied with a flurry of non-responsive words: “Well, I would hope that you like many others would also look at what he said when he testified before Congress, because when he did, he clarified much of what he had said in his press conference.”

“But he said it was sloppy,” Rose persisted.

“No,” Clinton insisted, “he did not.”

Yes, he did, too. Asked to explain what he had intended by the world careless, Comey explained that it was a commonsense term, meant to convey “real sloppiness.”
In Hillary's mind, I'm sure, because he didn't use the actual word "sloppy" he didn't say "sloppy."

Destroy Bernie

Red State: "Busted: 19,252 Emails From DNC Leaked By Wikileaks, And Oh MAN Are They Great!"

The big reveal is that the DNC did all they could to kneecap Bernie Sanders, that atheist.

Extra - So you won't be coming to Knoxville?

Another true believer

"The less justified a man is in claiming excellence for his own self, the more ready he is to claim all excellence for his nation, his religion, his race or his holy cause." - Eric Hoffer, The True Believer

Daily Mail: "Munich maniac was mentally ill loner obsessed with shooting sprees".  He called himself "German" but then there's this detail:
But just a week after another teenager attacker launched an ISIS-inspired axe attack on a German train, witnesses in McDonald's described hearing the attacker shouting 'Allahu Akbar' - or 'God is Great' - a cry used by Islamist terrorists during previous attacks. And ISIS supporters took to social media in the hours after yesterday's atrocity to celebrate the killings.
And just like that, you're famous.

This speech is not bad

I wasn't going to watch Donald Trump tonight but this advance copy (leaked?) of his acceptance speech is pretty good.  Obama seems to be a target just as much as Hillary.  It's a law and order speech that's going to resonate with a lot of Americans.

Update - Not so great on delivery, though.  Shouting.

The Left hates free speech, a continuing series

Breitbart: "Breitbart confronts 'The Daily Show' at Milo's 'Gays for Trump' party."
The episode is merely the latest example of the American Left’s newest fetish for destroying free speech.
The video is pretty remarkable: a bunch of "Daily Show" shavers tried to convince a Breitbart editor that he could not film them on a public street.  They got millennium-pissy, then lied, then packed up their equipment and fled the scene, all because they didn't want somebody fact-checking their slice-and-dice editing.

Hillary is sorry...for you

Last month, I noted that when Hillary says that her private email server was a "mistake" she actually accepts no blame whatsoever.  And now - finally - somebody in the media has cornered Hillary on this matter.  Via Power Line, here's "Hillary Clinton Has No Answers To Charlie Rose’s Many Tough Questions."
In one of the more revealing moments, Clinton even admits that she only regrets using a private email server because she was caught, saying “it was wrong because, look at what it has generated”.
And there it is.  The "mistake" is that it caused a controversy due to your misunderstanding, America, and that has hurt Hillary.

Sham Iranian nuclear deal gets shammier

Hot Air: "AP: Secret side agreement will allow Iran to accelerate nuke production in 11 years."
Remember when we compared the Barack Obama/John Kerry nuclear deal with Iran to Neville Chamberlain and Munich? That turned out to be far too harsh … to Neville Chamberlain.
Also, ICYMI: "Iran makes fourth attempt to launch new ballistic missile' since signing historic nuclear accord last year."  They're not barred from missile test by the toothless, unenforceable nuclear deal but by U.N. resolutions, for what that's worth.

Chaos in Turkey

Everything is spinning out of control.  Fox News: "Military coup underway in Turkey."

IIRC, the Turkey military is charged with keeping the government secular and, in the past, they have stepped in when they believe the government is turning too religious.  This might be one of those times.

Terrorism in France, again

Live news feed at Reddit.  76 dead at this writing, 15 more in critical condition.

Flashback - Gateway Pundit: "ISIS Announces It Has Covert Units in France and Turkey."

I can't believe this happened again, especially after John Kerry brought James Taylor to sing "You've got a friend."
