“We Should Have the Courage to Tell Them You Can Vote Again…”

Until you get it RIGHT, he means. Nigel Farage has a message for those guys:

The Foundation is on Solid Ground

…as far as certain DONORS are concerned.
Now go away.

Exclusive: Clinton charities ignore law requiring them to disclose millions from foreign donors
AG who could force transparency chooses not to

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has the power to force the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton Health Access Initiative to publicly disclose the names of foreign governments and the millions they donate each year to the charities but he’s not doing it, a Scripps News investigation has found.

Schneiderman’s failure to require compliance with New York law and written instructions from his own office keeps the public in the dark about whether the foreign governments that gave money to the Clinton charities also had special access to Hillary Clinton when she was secretary of state, experts in private foundation law say. New York state has long required more transparency from non-profits operating within its borders than many other regulators.

A Scripps Washington Bureau review of tax returns and regulatory filings found that year after year the Clinton charities have ignored New York law and related instructions. However, the office of Attorney General Schneiderman, a Democrat whom Hillary Clinton named to her campaign’s “leadership council” in New York, did not respond to Scripps’ questions about the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI), which has never publicly disclosed in New York filings the identity of its foreign government contributors or the amounts they give each year. Scripps also discovered CHAI did not report hundreds of millions of dollars in foreign government donations to the state.

However, Schneiderman’s office said it considers the Clinton Foundation, which is a separate charity, “in step” with state rules.

QUIT WORRYING YOUR PRETTY HEADS ABOUT HILLARY’S HEALTH

The Associated Press was kind enough to remind us this morning that she’s not “SICK“.
She’s a HERO

Clinton has history of ignoring health _ and paying a price

The White House was submerged in scandal. Democrats faced tough midterm elections. And Hillary Clinton, far more popular than her embattled husband, had become a one-woman campaign machine.

But the nonstop travel in 1998 took a toll. Clinton developed a blood clot behind her right knee, prompting the White House doctor to recommend hospitalization and a week of bedrest.

Determined to stay on the campaign trail, Clinton settled on an alternative: A nurse would travel with her to administer the medicine needed to monitor her health. She kept her condition a secret from nearly everyone but her Secret Service detail, alerted only because an injury could have been life-threatening.

“Very few people knew about it at the time,” recalled Dr. Connie Mariano in her autobiography. “Her staff thought she had pulled a muscle exercising.”

I’m not going to be able to catch a wink of sleep tonight, with the guilt washing over me in repetitive waves.

YOU should be sleepless as well. BASTARDS.

They’re Holding her Upright on the Curb

…like the corpse in Weekend at Bernie’s.

UPDATE: CNN is thoughtfully passing on the Clinton campaign spin with their headline:

Hillary Clinton not feeling well, leaves 9/11 event early

NOT FEELING WELL“?

So that’s what we’re now calling a FACEPLANT INTO YOUR LIMO, is it?

Duly noted.

Hillary Seems to Have Had an “Incident”

…during the ceremony at Ground Zero this morning.

CNBC is reporting she fainted…

Update: the campaign is saying she “felt overheated.” #AllBetter

A Couple HEART FELT Messages From Mrs. Clinton

…who just used the inclusive phrase basket of deplorables” to describe Trump supporters.

To just be grossly generalistic, you can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,” Clinton said at a fundraiser in New York City. “Right? Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, you name it.

Because #civility.

Presidential Empathy Update

Remember when it wasn’t ENOUGH that President Bush cut a vacation short and flew over Katrina ravaged New Orleans on his way back to the White House? How he should have BEEN there?
Good times, good times.

UNTIL what amounts to a CRISIS forced his hand (from the club shaft):

OBAMA INTERRUPTING VACATION TO CAMPAIGN FOR CLINTON

EDGARTOWN, Mass. (AP) — Golf, afternoons at the beach and … political campaigning?

President Barack Obama is interrupting what so far has been a leisurely vacation to help raise money for Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee. Obama has said there’s never been anyone more qualified than Clinton, who was his rival in the 2008 presidential contest and his first-term secretary of state, to be president.

Good to know SOMEBODY can count on him!

Remember When David Duke SAID Something Nice About Trump & ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE

…until Trump firmly (re: to liberal/pundit/mob media satisfaction) “disavowed” Duke’s despicableness? REMEMBER?

Ah, good times, good times.

I’m waiting on the Democrats, media and ESPECIALLY LGBT howls of outrage about the picture of this smiling fellow, SITTING DIRECTLY BEHIND HILLARY CLINTON last night at her rally.

Seats behind the party nominee at rallies are reserved for special folks, you know?

“Wooden Pallets Packed With Euros”

Maybe THAT’S Obama’s secret plan to destroy the Mullahs right there!

U.S. Sent Cash to Iran as Americans Were Freed
Obama administration insists there was no quid pro quo, but critics charge payment amounted to ransom

The Obama administration secretly organized an airlift of $400 million worth of cash to Iran that coincided with the January release of four Americans detained in Tehran, according to U.S. and European officials and congressional staff briefed on the operation afterward.

Wooden pallets stacked with euros, Swiss francs and other currencies were flown into Iran on an unmarked cargo plane, according to these officials. The U.S. procured the money from the central banks of the Netherlands and Switzerland, they said.

Everybody KNOWS Euros aren’t worth shit!

Temperament Unsuited

A Very Good Article On The State Of Our Union

And by “good” I of course mean sad

Haunting this year’s presidential contest is the sense that the U.S. government no longer belongs to the people and no longer represents them. And this uneasy feeling is not misplaced. It reflects the real state of affairs.

We have lost the government we learned about in civics class, with its democratic election of representatives to do the voters’ will in framing laws, which the president vows to execute faithfully, unless the Supreme Court rules them unconstitutional. That small government of limited powers that the Founders designed, hedged with checks and balances, hasn’t operated for a century. All its parts still have their old names and appear to be carrying out their old functions. But in fact, a new kind of government has grown up inside the old structure, like those parasites hatched in another organism that grow by eating up their host from within, until the adult creature bursts out of the host’s carcass. This transformation is not an evolution but a usurpation.

What has now largely displaced the Founders’ government is what’s called the Administrative State—a transformation premeditated by its main architect, Woodrow Wilson. The thin-skinned, self-righteous college-professor president, who thought himself enlightened far beyond the citizenry, dismissed the Declaration of Independence’s inalienable rights as so much outmoded “nonsense,” and he rejected the Founders’ clunky constitutional machinery as obsolete. (See “It’s Not Your Founding Fathers’ Republic Any More,” Summer 2014.) What a modern country needed, he said, was a “living constitution” that would keep pace with the fast-changing times by continual, Darwinian adaptation, as he called it, effected by federal courts acting as a permanent constitutional convention.

read the whole thing and have a depressing weekend.

We Can Relate

What we seeing play out now in the Brexit post-mortem is the exact kind of over-educated, arrogant dismissal of the will of the proletariat that got them where they are. When it was all heading in REMAIN’s direction, no one really heard anything about education, income class, AGE… But now that things have gone so horribly awry for the so horribly better situated in their plans for controlling lives not their own, in an effort to delegitimize the entire process, all these patronizing denigrations of the electorate who chose LEAVE have started. When you drill down into the post-polling data, they sniff and look disgustedly Heavenward, you see UNEDUCATED (by which they mean: no sheepskin), UNWASHED, MENIAL JOBS, LOWER MIDDLE CLASS, LOVELY FILTH OVER HERE, DENNIS! Ergo, this entire process is tainted, denying the flower of UK 20 somethings the future of THEIR choice (“I’m NOT British, I’m EUROPEAN” read one sweet young thing’s sign), as these selfish, “patriotic” OLD FUCKERS who are going to DIE SOON ANYWAY indulged themselves in one last fantasy round of Rule Britannia.

As David Brooks said last night, he understood LEAVE’s anger, he just wished they’d embraced a “more cosmopolitan form of patriotism.” WTF does that even MEAN?

It’s an ageist AND uneducated themed run at…your everyday, regular Brit.
The enraged, ever-so-clevers are manipulating this momentous ROAR of a formerly mewling British lion into:

Toothless, rag-selling, dung covered Alzheimer patients ruin youths’ bright future.

Taliban use ‘honey trap’ boys to kill Afghan police

Anuj Chopra
•June 16, 2016

The Taliban are using child sex slaves to mount crippling insider attacks on police in southern Afghanistan, exploiting the pervasive practice of “bacha bazi” — paedophilic boy play — to infiltrate security ranks, multiple officials and survivors of such assaults told AFP.

The ancient custom is prevalent across Afghanistan, but nowhere does it seem as entrenched as in the province of Uruzgan, where “bacha bereesh” — or boys without beards — widely become objects of lustful attraction for powerful police commanders.

The Taliban over nearly two years have used them to mount a wave of Trojan Horse attacks — at least six between January and April alone — that have killed hundreds of policemen, according to security and judicial officials in the province.

“The Taliban are sending boys — beautiful boys, handsome boys — to penetrate checkpoints and kill, drug and poison policemen,” said Ghulam Sakhi Rogh Lewanai, who was Uruzgan’s police chief until he was removed in a security reshuffle in April amid worsening violence.

“They have figured out the biggest weakness of police forces — bacha bazi,” he told AFP.

Excuse me while I go vomit.

It Would Appear There Isn’t Anything Hillary Can’t Vamoose


…including herself:

Hillary deletes more than emails as the latest edition of her memoir removes all her cheerleading for controversial Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal

*Hillary Clinton’s publisher removed a section of her memoir dealing with the Trans-Pacific Partnership from the book’s paperback version

*The controversial trade deal makes regular appearances in Donald Trump’s speeches, and Hillary Clinton was for it before she was against it

*She changed course last October when Bernie Sanders and Martin O’Malley clobbered her about the Obama administration’s position

*Clinton boasted in her 2014 book ‘Hard Choices’ that she had encouraged nations in the Americas to join the TPP agreement, but a paragraph about that cheerleading has disappeared from the paperback edition

*Simon & Schuster included a brief but vague acknowledgement that part of the book were zapped ‘to accommodate a shorter length’

“Scared of Women and Children” Update

Düsseldorf terror plot ‘bigger than previously realized’
The Isis plot to attacks the capital of North Rhine-Westphalia was bigger than previously assumed, with ten terrorists supposed to murder people with bombs and guns, local media report.

…On Thursday three men were arrested in Düsseldorf, after a fourth plot member had turned himself in to authorities in Paris in February.

Three of the men, all of them Syrian nationals are alleged to have arrived in Germany in 2015 along the Balkan route, the route taken by refugees fleeing the Syrian civil war.

The six additional members of the plot were supposed to join them at a later point, Saleh A. who is in custody in Paris told investigators.

According to his account, two of the group were supposed to blow themselves up in the Altstadt district, the other men were then to attack more civilians with guns and explosives.

You’ll notice the article is careful to say they arrived “ALONG the Balkan route/taken by refugees” and not that these guys WERE “refugees.”

That makes it all better, n’est pas?
