Politico: “Why Can’t Hillary Stop Fudging the Truth?”

Fudging the truth? The Politico writer eventually calls it lying but the headline and the sub-headline use softer words. Still, they are addressing her penchant for lying. But I wonder. Do the people who read Politico consider lying to be wrong? The writer asks the question, recounts some of her more blatant lies and then becomes sympathetic to her.

“Email-gate is only the latest instance in a 25-year habit of dissembling.”

Twenty-five years? She is 69 years old.

hillary shades

What is it with Hillary Clinton? What is it about this brilliant and accomplished woman–described by Barack Obama as possibly “more qualified” to be president than anyone in history–that makes so many people certain she is an incurable liar?

[…]

Moreover, dissembling is not always a bad trait in a president. Some of the greatest, most notably Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who enjoyed playing his aides off against each other by letting each think he’d sided with them on a given issue, have been masters of the art.

[…]

Clinton’s resilience – her ability to slog on in the face of the worst possible reverses – is the trait that has helped her get within reach of the biggest prize of her life. The flipside is that her capacity for a level of defensiveness and denial that sometimes seems to border on magical thinking might yet keep the ultimate goal out of her grasp.”

So, the obvious conclusion to be reached by reading this is that progressives don’t consider lying to be a bad thing unless it gets in the way of victory.

Does Hillary Clinton Support America’s Police?

Does she want racial healing in our country?

No. To both questions. She has invited Michael Brown’s mother Lesley McSpadden to speak at the Democrat National Convention. By doing this she will reignite the racial discord and the anger against the nation’s police officers the broke out in Ferguson, Missouri and in other places. It is still manifesting itself today. Cops are being hunted down and murdered by young black men as a result.

This is a big, fat spit in the eye to law-abiding Americans. It is evil but evil is what we expect from Hillary Rodham Clinton.

We already know that Democrat convention kicking off on July 25 will be a heinous pagan spectacle where the attendees will, as they’ve done in the past, cry out in rebellion against God and truth, and cheer as they hand the nomination to a lying crook who hates this country and everyone who lives here. That much we must expect. It’s hard to imagine that any specific moment will stand out as more debased or diabolical than the next, but I have an early candidate for that distinction: the headlining speech to be delivered by Lezley McSpadden, the mother of Michael Brown.

We’ve grown so accustomed to blatant race baiting and mob incitement on the part of the Democrats that this move may not seem extraordinary. Indeed, there appear to be very few people making a big deal out of it. And I admit it’s not necessarily surprising that today’s Democrat Party would honor the mother of a violent brute on such an important stage. But that doesn’t make it any less disgusting, especially considering the current climate.”

You May Have Missed This

Congressman Steve King, from Iowa, asks this MSNBC panel just why we should honor minorities that have added little or nothing to western civilization. No one has ever talked to them like that before.

The discussion began with someone expressing his opinion that old white people are losing their hold on the Republican party and then saying that the old white people he saw are fired up and ready to act.

Fellow panelist Charlie Pierce, of Esquire, had said on Monday: “If you’re really optimistic, you can say that this is the last time that old white people will command the Republican Party’s attention, its platform, its public face,” adding, “That hall is wired by loud, unhappy, dissatisfied white people.”
“Now, that’s disparaging a group of people, and ‘old white people’ — can you trade that language out by adding any other group in there as an adjective?” King said Wednesday. “And by the way, I am wise enough not to even do that for people, because then it blows the whole Twittersphere up again. But he was disparaging a group of people, a subgroup of people, ‘old white people,’ and saying they’re going to be out of the politics of the Republican Party. That’s gotta be answered….

“And so, yes, any civilization, you can look down through that and say these are things that we’re not proud of. I could go back and give you that list,” King acknowledged. “But the sum total that’s been contributed by Western civilization, it surpasses any other culture or civilization, partly because we borrowed from them along the way, and we’re flexible enough to do that. And so I don’t think we should apologize for our success. And the idea of multiculturalism, in that every culture is equal — that’s not objectively true. And we’ve been fed that information for the last 25 years in this country, and we’re not going to continue to become a greater nation if we don’t look at this objectively.”

Whining leftists are demanding that King back away from his remark. Do you think he will?

“Massachusetts Attorney General Unilaterally Rewrites the State’s Gun Laws”

glenda ar15

Without the legislature, without the governor, and without any form of public consultation, the attorney general of Massachusetts has today rewritten the state’s 1998 Gun Control Act. In an edict sent out this morning, AG Maura Healey explained that the law no longer meant what it had meant since 1998, but instead would mean what she wanted it to mean. Writing in the Boston Globe, Healey outlined the changes:

The Massachusetts assault weapons ban mirrors the federal ban Congress allowed to expire in 2004. It prohibits the sale of specific weapons like the Colt AR-15 and AK-47 and explicitly bans “copies or duplicates” of those weapons.”

NIMBY: “Oh, Nooo. A Mormon!”

People in places like Texas and Alaska can identify with the negative reactions of the people who just moved in. People are fleeing places like California and Illinois because of the way local ordinances restrict their rights to be different. They don’t just want to be different. They also want things to stay the same as they were when they moved in.

In many, if not most, cases they moved where they did to enjoy the low cost of living that happens in poor communities. That is what they could afford.

The trouble is that the newbies bring with them the same prejudices they had where they came from.

This man is willing to spend his own money to buy land for his dream. The people who sold to him are happy but their neighbors are not. They don’t want anything to interrupt their rural lifestyle. But their way of living is fleeting. The history of the world includes primitive people being overrun by others with superior force or more money.

They want what they want. No amount of reasoning will change their minds. It seems to me that their dreams would be better served by moving to Venezuela.

“A Mormon Tycoon Wants to Build Joseph Smith’s Mega-Utopia in Vermont”

feat_utopia31-1b

David Hall is snapping up farmland to bring his vision of a sustainable high-density community to life. The neighbors are horrified.

Nicole Antal, a 30-year-old librarian in Sharon, Vermont, was putting together a town report in late January when she stumbled upon a series of odd land purchases: In just three months, a Utah-based foundation had quietly bought more than 900 acres of nearby farmland, an area larger than Central Park. All of the land was either adjacent or close to the birthplace and memorial of Joseph Smith, founder of the Mormon Church. “I’ve always loved mysteries,” says Antal. “And this seemed like a good one.”

That evening, when Antal got home to the 450-square-foot house she’s building with her husband, she strapped on a headlamp. The house doesn’t yet have electricity and she needed to prepare dinner for her 5-year-old son, Robin. She also wanted to poke around online. Standing next to her wood-burning stove, Antal flipped open her precharged laptop and Googled the name of the Utah organization: NewVistas. “This strange website popped up,” she says. “It had all these architectural models with fake people walking around. I didn’t know what to think.”

NewVistas, Antal soon discovered, was started by a wealthy Mormon engineer named David Hall, who wants to build sustainable, high-tech, high-density communities all across the globe. From the looks of things, he hoped to build one right in her backyard, in rural Vermont.

[…]

Out in Provo, Utah, Hall began arranging a series of trips to meet with angry Vermonters.

Hall’s opponents have put up signs on the streets of Sharon.

Hall’s opponents have put up signs on the streets of Sharon.

Two days later, Antal is making crepes in her tiny house, which sits on 47 acres of farmland. She and her husband, a computer engineer for Dartmouth College, say they chose to build small only because it was what they could afford. Outside, they’ve dug a well, built and hand-painted a chicken coop, and planted sprawling vegetable gardens. Inside, jars of maple syrup line a windowsill. Robin watches The Lion King in French on a laptop.

The couple moved to Vermont five years ago, oddly enough, from Salt Lake City. The previous night, Antal had invited Hall over for a simple dinner of bread, cheese, and salad. She’d showed him her petite house, and they’d talked, off the record, for more than two hours. “He’s a really nice guy,” Antal says. “Part of me feels bad for exposing his plan, because I think he means well.” One of Hall’s mistakes, she suspects, may be that he’s an engineer who tries to solve everything as if it were a math or physics problem without factoring in human emotion. “He’s nerdy, and I love that,” she says. “He sees these issues in the world, and he’s trying to find a way.”

CNN’s Don Lemon Tries To Steer The Narrative

Sheriff Clarke is having none of it. He tries to make the point that black lives do not matter to the Black Lives Matter movement because they don’t care about the police and they don’t care about the black lives that are taken by other black people. Lemon tries to shut him up and eventually does.

Lemon spouts the moonbat line. Clarke has the law and order line.

From Moonbattery here are the words to Ice T’s 1992 hit, ‘Cop Killer’. The hatred for police has been orchestrated for a long time.
Sheriff Clarke has seen it coming.

Cop killer, f*** police brutality!
Cop killer, I know your family’s grieving
(F*** ’em!)
Cop killer, but tonight we get even, ha ha

I got my brain on hype
Tonight’ll be your night
I got this long-assed knife
And your neck looks just right
My adrenaline’s pumpin’
I got my stereo bumpin’

A pig stopped me for nuthin’!

Another Lesson: If You See Something Keep Your Mouth Shut

Yep. Americans are learning how to behave properly. Here is another page in the lesson plan:

“Hotel Clerk in Trouble After Calling 911 on Muslim Man Asking Odd Questions About Room Near RNC”

Fairfield-Inn-Suites.sized-770x415xc

Three weeks before the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio, a Muslim man in traditional attire asked multiple questions about booking a hotel for a month and refused to leave the hotel despite learning that it was booked for the time he wanted. A hotel clerk, disturbed by his actions, asked her family to call 911. The police responded immediately, because the clerk’s sister said the man had mentioned the Islamic State (ISIS).

The clerk was fired in less than a week, and now the police may charge her, thus setting a dangerous precedent that if you point out a potential threat, you yourself will land in jail.”

Some Are Saying The Cleveland Police Have Gotten A ‘Stand-Down Order’ For RNC Convention

“Cleveland Police have Issued “Stand Down” Order at RNC.” From here.

cleveland map

That idea may have some merit. Cleveland’s Fox8 tells us that they have gotten new rules:

“I-Team: New Cleveland police rules for crowd management during the RNC”

CLEVELAND – The Fox 8 I-Team has obtained a new Cleveland Police 28-page order titled “Crowd Management And The Protection Of Constitutional Rights”.

[…]

In the section labeled “PURPOSE”, the document refers to “guidance on safely and effectively managing crowds that assemble for the purposes of carrying out Constitutionally protected activities of free speech and assembly…”.

The order also says, police should make “reasonable efforts to employ ‘non-arrest’ methods of crowd management…”. And arrests should be made in a “fair and efficient manner…”.

The order outlines detailed rules for how to engage crowds and how to disperse them. And there are specific rules for when and how to use pepper spray or tear gas including the chain of command for approving that.

Finally, the order also includes how officers should make mass arrests, if necessary.”

I have seen other warnings about the ‘Stand-down order’ but they all refer back to the link at the top of this page.

A large group of patriotic motorcycle enthusiasts will be among the visitors to Cleveland Ohio next week for the Republican National Committee meeting that will nominate business mogul Donald Trump to be the Republican nominee for President of the United States.

Bikers for Trump aren’t going to Cleveland looking to cause trouble but will be on hand to counter thousands of professional leftwing agitators planning to disrupt the Republican nominating convention.

“We will be there to make sure that the delegates are allowed to exercise their right to peacefully assemble,” Bikers for Trump organizer Chris Cox told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview. “We’ve seen how these paid agitators have thrown eggs and gotten violent at other Trump events around the country and we’re not going to put up with it.”

The Inevitable Result Of Socialism Is Failure Like This:

“Venezuela Now a Military Dictatorship”

Venezuela’s Marxist President Nicolás Maduro and defense minister, Vladimir Padrino López

Venezuela’s Marxist President Nicolás Maduro and defense minister, Vladimir Padrino López

Venezuela’s Marxist President Nicolás Maduro (shown, above) closed the loop on Monday night, declaring under powers granted to himself by his “emergency decree” announced in January (later to be declared “constitutional” by his hand-picked Supreme Court) that his new Great Sovereign Supply Mission would be run by the country’s defense minister, Vladimir Padrino López (shown, right).

Maduro put everything that moves into the hands of Padrino: “All the ministries, all the ministers, all the state institutions are at the service [of] and in absolute subordination [to the new mission].”

Padrino, the head of Venezuela’s armed forces, now will be in charge of transporting and distributing what’s left of products supplied by the crippled economy, enforcing price controls, and “stimulating” the economy.

A former head of the armed forces commission in the now emasculated congress, Luis Manuel Esculpí, said, “This is now a completely militarized government. The army is Maduro’s [sole] source of authority.”

“Police Officer Picks Up the Tab for Couple That Refused to Sit Next to Him”

HT_check_paid1_ml_160712_v4x3_12x5_992

A Pennsylvania police officer picked up the tab for a couple that refused to sit next to him and his fellow officers at a local diner, and a post about his encounter on social media has garnered attention at a time of strained police-community relations.

Officer Chuck Thomas of the Homestead Police Department told ABC News today that he and three other officers sat down for dinner at the Eat n’ Park restaurant last Friday, the day after a shooter in Dallas killed five police officers and injured 11 other people.

“A male and female were going to be seated across from us, and he said, ‘I don’t want to sit there,'” Thomas said, “which drew my attention, and we made eye contact, and his body language just told me that he wanted nothing to do with police.”

“I looked over at him and said, ‘You don’t have to worry about it. We won’t hurt you,'” Thomas said. “He said, ‘No, I’m good. I don’t want to sit there.'”

Here Is What Happens When You Falsely Accuse Police Of Murder

This follows as surely as wet follows rain. Hateful politicians accuse police officers of wrongdoing in the death of Freddy Gray. Police stop patrolling and many quit the force. What happens then is that the criminals take advantage of the lack of policing. Robberies, shootings, and deaths increase.

Mayor Rawlings-Blake and State’s Attorney Mosby decided to charge six cops with the unlawful death of Gray. Juries and judges have been saying that the charges were not warranted. They are finding the officers innocent.

This is how Detroit was destroyed. Baltimore is right at that city’s heels.

Jermaine Schofield was gunned down in Baltimore on Sunday, one of three murder victims in the city that day. Today, Schofield’s family held a vigil for him.

During the vigil, a gunman fired at attendees. Five were hit. Thankfully, all are expected to survive.

These events are not an aberration. Baltimore has descended into chaos since, in the aftermath of Freddy Gray’s death, the city failed to back its police force.

[…]

Meanwhile, Baltimore’s police force is shrinking dramatically. According to Blake Neff of the Daily Caller, at the beginning of 2015, Baltimore had 2,805 police officers. By the end of the year, the force was down to 2,634 officers, a drop of 6.1 percent. In June of this year, there were only 2,445 officers in the force, a decline of 6.8 percent since January.”

You Don’t Threaten A Cop’s Family

“Off-duty police officer fatally shoots home intruder who had argued with him about Black Lives Matter on Facebook”

broken glass door

An off-duty police officer fatally shot a man who was trying to enter his St. Louis-area home late Saturday afternoon, Missouri officials say.

According to police, 20-year-old Tyler Gebhard rang the doorbell at the officer’s Lakeshire, Mo., home shortly before 6 p.m. When the officer’s wife answered the door and refused entry, police said, Gebhard, a former high school football star, threw a 50-pound concrete planter through a rear window and attempted to enter.

St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said Gebhard was shot twice in the chest by the officer, whose name was not released. Gebhard, who was known to the officer’s family, was rushed to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

[…]

Belmar said the officer’s wife, mother-in-law, a toddler and an infant were in the home at the time of the incident and that the family members heard the officer tell the intruder to “get down” before shots were fired.”

Expect our President to say the police, “Acted stupidly”.
