It’s only news when white folks put crazy to paper and lose their mind
Via PJ Media:
Two days ago, ABC News reported that Vester Flanagan, the murderer of two WDBJ employees, sent a 23-page faxed manifesto to ABC News. ABC reported bits and pieces of the manifesto.
Yet we still haven’t seen the full document. ABC hasn’t made it available. Why?
John Nolte and others have been busy hammering away at the racial hypocrisy of many in the media after treating Flanagan’s crimes very differently from Dylann Roof’s. Unquestionably, they were both racially motivated.
But you’d never know that from reading the headlines in the Washington Post or other mouthpieces that enable the (one way) racial grievance industry.
Arab money goes a long way.
As Hillary Clinton’s campaign seeks to project dominance in a field that could soon include Vice President Joe Biden, her top advisers are touting a decisive edge on a little-discussed metric: superdelegate commitments.
At the Democratic National Committee meeting in Minneapolis, where she will speak Friday, senior Clinton campaign officials are claiming that she has already secured one-fifth of the pledges needed to win the Democratic presidential nomination. They come from current and former elected officials, committee officeholders, and other party dignitaries.
Narrative implodes on itself.
Via Washington Times:
The White House conceded Friday that new gun regulations probably wouldn’t have prevented the gunman who murdered two television journalists in southwestern Virginia this week.
White House press secretary Josh Earnest said it appears that a proposal championed by President Obama to require background checks on purchases at gun shows “would not have applied in this particular case.”
Law enforcement officials said gunman Vester Flanagan used a Glock handgun in Wednesday’s shooting, one of two that he bought last month. He legally bought two Glock model 19 handguns from a Virginia dealer.
Mr. Earnest said the White House has never suggested that one piece of gun legislation would prevent all gun violence in the U.S. But Mr. Earnest said the proposal on background checks, which failed in the Senate in 2013, would prevent other shooting deaths around the country every day.
Natural causes or did he take himself out?
Via Irish Times:
The Holy See has announced that the controversial former papal nuncio, Archbishop Josef Wesolowski (67), on trial in the Vatican on charges of paedophile crime, was found dead in his lodgings this morning.
The Holy See said first indications suggested the Polish archbishop had died of natural causes. It added, however, that the promoter of justice (attorney general) had called for an immediate autopsy, the results of which will be made known “as soon as possible”.
Via Fox News:
An FBI “A-team” is leading the “extremely serious” investigation into Hillary Clinton’s server and the focus includes a provision of the law pertaining to “gathering, transmitting or losing defense information,” an intelligence source told Fox News.
The section of the Espionage Act is known as 18 US Code 793.
A separate source, who also was not authorized to speak on the record, said the FBI will further determine whether Clinton should have known, based on the quality and detail of the material, that emails passing through her server contained classified information regardless of the markings.
The campaign’s standard defense and that of Clinton is that she “never sent nor received any email that was marked classified” at the time.
Oh, yeah, she’s totally jazzed about it, isn’t she? Either that, or she looks like she’s hungover.
NY Times Pens Story On Clarence Thomas Suggesting He Asks No Questions And Plagiarizes Other People’s Thoughts
Disgusting, even now, they’re still after him. Opinions are traditionally written by clerks of the justices, and often contain parts of the briefs submitted by attorneys as a natural course of the discussion, no plagiarism about it.
Via NY Times:
Justice Clarence Thomas has not asked a question from the Supreme Court bench since 2006. His majority opinions tend to be brisk, efficient and dutiful.
Now, studies using linguistic software have discovered another Thomas trait: Those opinions contain language from briefs submitted to the court at unusually high rates.
The findings that the taciturn justice’s opinions appear to rely heavily on the words of others do not suggest misconduct — legal writing often tracks source materials — but they do illuminate his distinctive role on the court.
Obama continues to sink her…
Ten days after the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attacks, the top foreign policy adviser at the Clinton Foundation had a potentially lucrative proposal on which to seek guidance from Hillary Clinton’s aides at the State Department.
The email from Amitabh Desai to Cheryl Mills, chief of staff to then-Secretary of State Clinton, describes a pitch by Stella O’Leary, a Democratic donor active in Irish American causes.
O’Leary, according to Desai’s email, said Clinton had “firmly instructed” her to set up a not-for-profit organization — one that qualifies for 501(c)3 status under U.S. tax laws — called Friends of the Clinton Centre.
In his email, Desai says: “I also asked if the new org could be flexible so that any funding raised could be used in whatever manner WJC” — the initials of former President Bill Clinton — “and HRC wish in Ireland and Northern Ireland, and not restricted to support only the current iteration of the Clinton Centre in Enniskillen.”
Diversity seems pretty closed-minded.
Holier-than-thou liberals on the Denver city council are waging war on Chick-fil-A in the name of tolerance and diversity. Now, let me tell you what the squawking is really all about: It’s a distraction, a feint, a mile-high smokescreen.
Spiteful Democrats claim they are upholding progressive “Denver values” by delaying approval of an airport concession contract with the Christian-owned restaurant chain.
But the politically correct storm over same-sex marriage (which Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy personally opposes) is convenient cover for the local government’s serial mismanagement, bloated spending and shady contracting practices.
Conservative Author Brad Thor Challenges Donald Trump To A Debate, Vows To Donate $100,000 If He Accepts
As a true conservative, I allege that @realDonaldTrump is anything but, and publicly challenge him to a one-on-one, open and public debate.

Via The Blaze:
New York Times best-selling author Brad Thor publicly challenged Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to a debate on Thursday, vowing to donate $100,000 to Young America’s Foundation if the billionaire accepts the challenge.
Thor claims Trump is not a “true conservative” and he would go as far as “formally declaring my candidacy” to get on a stage to debate Trump on the issues.
Stepping out of the storm.

The CEO of adultery website Ashley Madison is stepping down in the wake of the massive breach of the company’s computer systems and outing of millions of its members.
Avid Life Media Inc., Ashley Madison’s parent company, says Noel Biderman’s departure was a mutual decision and in the best interest of the company.
Hackers originally breached Avid Life’s systems in July and then posted the information online a month later after the company didn’t comply with their demands to shut down.

A California man could lose his hand after being bitten by a rattlesnake he was holding and taking pictures with, family members said Thursday.
Alex Gomez found the 4-foot long snake behind his home on Monday and decided to pick it up. The 36-year-old could be seen holding the snake and even wrapping it around his neck in photographs provided to KTLA.
At some point after the photos were taken, the rattlesnake attacked Gomez, biting him in the hand.
“I was terrified and I said ‘What a fool, stupid, you could die,’” his mother Debra Gomez said.
Democrats do this seeking to pander. But the video shows then what they are endorsing, ‘Burn everything down’. This video is from their disruption at Netroots Nation, an action lead by the very leaders named by the DNC in this resolution.
The Democratic National Committee is expected on Friday to adopt a resolution expressing its support for the Black Lives Matter movement, a DNC official said.
The resolution, the language of which was made available to BuzzFeed News, will be voted on by the full body during the general session on Friday at the DNC’s summer meetings in Minneapolis.
The draft of the resolution mentions by name Patrisse Cullors, Opal Tometi, and Alicia Garza, the founders of the Black Lives Matter organization. They are from “a generation of young African-Americans who feel totally dismissed and unheard as they are crushed between unlawful street violence and unjust police violence,” the draft reads.
The DNC said it resolves “that the DNC joins with Americans across the country in affirming ‘Black lives matter’ and the ‘say her name’ efforts to make visible the pain of our fellow and sister Americans as they condemn extrajudicial killings of unarmed African-American men, women, and children.”
So wait, a man who took the electorate so for granted that he lost his own election wants to endorse another who does the same? Oh, that will do well…
(CNN)Former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor endorsed presidential candidate Jeb Bush on Thursday.
“Governor Bush is a true conservative leader with a long-term vision for this country and the practical know-how to implement it,” Cantor said in a statement. “After eight years of anemic growth and declining international relevance, America needs a president that can re-energize our nation and recapture our greatness — Jeb Bush is that man. I look forward to working closely with the governor and his team as they chart a course to the White House.”
Cantor also tweeted his support, using the hashtag #AllInForJeb.

Whatever you say, Ana.
“Ana” is a highly educated business woman in her 40s who is finalizing a divorce with her husband.
She stayed up late Thursday rapidly texting eight married men with whom she had relationships after finding them on Ashley Madison.
She said the men are all worried their wives will use search tools now available online to find the email addresses they used to sign up for the cheating site.
Meanwhile, Ana is concerned about her job in finance. Her clients are couples and small businesses. These are highly personal relationships. If they plug in her email address into any of the available Ashley Madison searches, she’ll be exposed. And maybe even fired.
“I would lose business, contracts… I’m not even sure if my contract with my employer has a morality clause,” she told CNNMoney on Friday. “It could be very damaging.”
Ana claims to have had more than 50 encounters — everything ranging from “a benign flirtatious lunch” to “three days in a hotel room and ordering room service.” To her, Ashley Madison was a playground.
“Honey, I devoured them,” she said.
