Seriously, condolences to the family. But it kind of reminds me of the obit I once read in the San Antonio paper. A guy got shot by the cops after a standoff and his obit in the paper a few days later read that he had died "following a brief illness." Yeah, like acute lead poisioning.

Chuck Ross also remembers Rodham’s latest scandal that involved GreenTech Automotive, Chinese investors, special visa deals… Another investor: Terry McAuliffe. Whoever said “thick as thieves” knew what he was talking about.

I was preparing to post my comments when I remembered what G. Gordon Liddy said about Bill Clinton; his comment will suffice: "My mother always said that if you can't say anything nice about someone, don't say anything at all. So, let's just say the evidence suggests he's heterosexual, and let it go at that."

He was a total dirt bag up to his eyeballs in his dreadful sister Hillary's corruption crimes and treasonous schemes against our Country. Her mind is flooded with memories sez Hillary! The only thing her mind is flooded with is hate and booze. Say hello to Ted Kennedy when you arrive in hell, Tony and start polishing your sister's seat next to Satan so it will be ready for her when she arrives.

It’s hard to keep track of crooked Rodham-Clinton little brothers. It was either Bill or Hillary’s brother who somehow grabbed control of the gold mine in Haiti following the Earthquake there. Bill’s brother was the cocaine addict (along with Bubba himself). Agree with #9. 65 is pretty young these days to die of heart disease. Too much substance abuse. That said, I knew three former college wrestlers who died of heart problems. I suspect adrenalin and weight loss regimens had a big part.

This interview is interesting from a few aspects. First, Carter Page states he was a long-standing source of information for the intelligence apparatus, specifically for the CIA for decades.

If it’s true that “natural right is dynamite,” as political philosopher Leo Strauss wrote, then Justice Clarence Thomas just went nuclear on the abortion debate. (Snip) his deepening of the judicial and, hence, the political debate over abortion demands further elaboration. His reply to the leading threat to the principles of the Declaration of Independence is his latest attempt in a career of restoring its authority. Thomas had argued, “this [Indiana] law and other laws like it promote a State’s compelling interest in preventing abortion from becoming a tool of modern-day eugenics.”

More flagrant lies of omission have been discovered in the Robert Mueller Report (which debunked the media’s Russia Collusion Hoax and cleared Trump of obstruction), reports the Hill. “In a key finding of the Mueller report, Ukrainian businessman Konstantin Kilimnik, who worked for Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, is tied to Russian intelligence,” writes John Solomon. Solomon adds: But hundreds of pages of government documents — which special counsel Robert Mueller possessed since 2018 — describe Kilimnik as a “sensitive” intelligence source for the U.S. State Department who informed on Ukrainian and Russian matters.

Naturally, the outlet also attacks President Trump over his own Vietnam-era deferment, but comparing Trump to Biden in this regard, as you will see, is like comparing a gun to a tomato. According the report, after he graduated college in 1968, Biden became eligible for the draft, which could have landed him in combat in Vietnam. What saved him, what earned him a 1-Y draft deferment, was asthma… Asthma, y’all.

The 2020 election is lurching toward us like a malfunctioning robot, and I think we must ask ourselves: Can we risk nominating a man for president? Men selected as major-party nominees for president have failed to win the popular vote 50 percent of the time. Contrast that to the 100 percent of the time that a female nominee for president has won the popular vote. More importantly, are Americans ready to withstand another four years of male presidency? It is unpleasant to traffic in stereotypes, and many men are in no way like this, but recent experience teaches that for usually 31 days a month (sometimes 30, occasionally 28),

The deal to avert tariffs that President Trump announced with great fanfare on Friday night consists largely of actions that Mexico had already promised to take in prior discussions with the United States over the past several months, according to officials from both countries who are familiar with the negotiations. Friday’s joint declaration says Mexico agreed to the “deployment of its National Guard throughout Mexico, giving priority to its southern border.” But the Mexican government had already pledged to do that in March during secret talks in Miami between Kirstjen Nielsen, then the secretary of homeland security, and Olga Sanchez, the Mexican secretary of the interior, the officials said.

In rote fashion, they repeated Abrams’s charges that the outcome was determined by “voter suppression” conducted by Kemp, who

The insurer that covers Oberlin College for liability, Lexington Insurance Company, filed documents with court last month indicating that its umbrella liability policy would not cover costs of any judgment for the plaintiffs. That means that if, after the appeals process has run its course, the plaintiffs move to collect the $11 million a jury just awarded them (plus whatever punitive damages – up to $22 more – are awarded next week), Lexington likely won’t pay and Oberlin would have to sue for reimbursement.
