    "I I hope you realize the irony of what she’s doing,” Paul Czisny, a Wisconsin delegate for Bernie, said, nodding his head backward at a young woman standing in the stands, a piece of white tape across her mouth that said in stark black letters SILENCED. Periodically, she stood up and photographers rushed over, camera shutters whirring, to snap her admittedly very dramatic portrait. “She’s able to vote, she’s able to get elected as a delegate, she’s able to come here,” Czisny rolled his eyes. He’s as pissed off as anyone about the business of the DNC emails—“it just feeds...
  • DNC sought to hide details of Clinton funding deal

    Politico ^ | July 26, 2016 | KENNETH P. VOGEL and ISAAC ARNSDORF
    PHILADELPHIA — Leaked emails show the Democratic National Committee scrambled this spring to conceal the details of a joint fundraising arrangement with Hillary Clinton that funneled money through state Democratic parties. During the three-month period when the DNC was working to spin the situation, state parties kept less than one half of one percent of the $82 million raised through the arrangement — validating concerns raised by campaign finance watchdogs, state party allies and Bernie Sanders supporters. The arrangement, called the Hillary Victory Fund, allowed the Clinton campaign to seek contributions of hundreds of thousands of dollars to attend extravagant...

    A tumultuous first day of the Democratic National Convention is in the books. I watched, tweeted and, candidly, ate and drank. (I mean, it was a long day.) My take on the best and worst of the night that was is below. Winners * Michelle Obama: An absolute home run. Period. It will be difficult for anyone in the next three days to deliver a better speech than the first lady did on Monday night. She used her personal story of raising two young African American girls in the White House to tie her husband's history-making presidency to the history-making...

    A priest who was taken hostage by two armed men with knives at a church in northern France has been killed, a police source says. It appeared the priest's throat was slit, the source told the Reuters news agency. Two men, both armed with knives, took five hostages in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray in Rouen. Note: Details are still sketchy, but it appears that the four other hostages who witnessed the priest's murder were nuns.

    When it comes to the connection between Islam and violence against non-Muslims, one fact must be embraced: the majority of those in positions of leadership and authority in the West are either liars or fools, or both. No other alternative exists. The reason for this uncharitable assertion is simple: If Islam was once a faraway, exotic religion, today we hear calls for, and see acts of, violence committed in its name—or the name of its deity “Allahu Akbar!”—practically every day. And many of us still have “ears that hear and eyes that see.” It’s no secret: Muslims from all around...

    The rash of Islamic terrorist attacks is forcing the media to scramble to make up new excuses for each attacker. The latest Islamic suicide bomber in Germany was supposed to have been upset over not getting asylum. It was unclear if he even wanted to kill anyone. "We don't know if this man planned on suicide or if he had the intention of killing others," Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann said. Surprisingly, it turns out that he did. The Syrian suicide bomber who injured 15 people in a Sunday night attack on a music festival in Ansbach, Germany, left behind...

The 26-year-old man later turned himself in at a police station, admitting to officers: "I did it." He reportedly also said: "The disabled should all disappear." Authorities identified the attacker as Satoshi Uematsu and said he had worked at the facility in Sagamihara, a city of more than 700,000 people west of Tokyo, until February.

For a year, 74-year-old socialist Bernie Sanders has been saying that, under DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the party has been undercutting his campaign and hauling water for Hillary Clinton. From the 19,200 emails dumped the weekend before Clinton’s coronation, it appears...

His latest documentary, “Hillary’s America,” was recently released and has attracted significant interest from voters hoping to learn more about the former first lady’s sordid past. If one Democratic state committeeman has his way, though, it might be impossible for some locals to catch this film at their neighborhood cinema. Joseph Flynn has sent a request to a chain of theaters operating in Sumter County, Fla., to remove D’Souza’s film from...

    President Obama is standing by his decision to ramp up the admission of Syrian refugees to the United States even after three refugees from Islamic countries attacked people in Germany over the last week. The 10,000 Syrian refugees the president wants to admit by October are subjected to more thorough screening and vetting than anyone trying to enter the United States, White House spokesman Josh Earnest stressed Monday. "That's why the president has confidence ramping up the number of refugees admitted to the United States," Earnest told reporters during his daily briefing.

Hitlery Campaign Manager, Robby Mook, is claiming that Putin is leaking the emails in an effort to help Donald Trump win the election. Is that any worse than the DNC conspiring to screw Bernie Sanders out of the nomination? I think not, pardon my digression. Of course, Putin denies it, and the Trump campaign, in the person of Paul Manafort, labels the charge "absurd." But is it? There is no question that Putin...

    PHILADELPHIA -- Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the embattled outgoing chair of the Democratic National Committee, was forcibly driven out of her own state delegation's breakfast Monday amid vocal and unwieldy protests by Bernie Sanders' supporters. Schultz, who announced Sunday she would resign her chairmanship after emails showed top staffers at the Democratic National Committee worked to undermine Sanders' primary campaign against Hillary Clinton, attempted to talk over a chorus of heckles and boos at a downtown hotel hosting the Florida Democratic Party. But the Florida congresswoman, who faces a newly emboldened primary challenge in her home state, could barely be heard...

    To be clear, not every Sanders supporter feels that way. In fact, the vast majority of them tell pollsters they plan to vote for Clinton this fall. But there is without doubt a vocal group here in Philadelphia unwilling to roll over and play nice with the presumptive nominee — no matter what Sanders says they should do. That is an issue for Clinton — and for Sanders. A vocal minority in the context of, say, Sanders's speech to the convention tonight could be a major problem for party strategists doing everything they can to present a united front. Anything...

    Black votes matter. If Republicans could get 20 percent of black votes, the Democrats would be ruined. This is highly unlikely, given the approach used by Republicans. However, the point is that Democrats must not only continue to get nine-tenths of black votes, they also need to get a high turnout of black voters on election day. People who expected the election of President Barack Obama to lead to racial healing and a post-racial society failed to take account of the political reality that racial healing and a post-racial society would, at a minimum, reduce black voter turnout.

The Modern Police Force was established to solve minor crimes among a highly civilized, self-governing, and self-policing people. When policing was established, police officers did not carry guns, but carried a wooden baton and a whistle. In those days, it was the civilians who had guns, because the British people lived in a libertarian society that had very few restrictions on gun ownership. Police officers in Britain are called Bobbies, in memory of Sir Robert Peel. An ethical police...

Bernie Sanders. Meanwhile, throngs of Sanders supporters marched and pounded on drums, chanting “Hell no, DNC — we won’t vote for Hillary” in the...
