A new document released by the FBI in this week’s “Friday document dump” adds another damning piece of evidence to the inexplicably closed Clinton email case. Obama now implicated as a co-conspirtator.
Roger Simon says Hillary’s scandal makes Watergate look like a kerfulle at a sewing circle.
The seriousness of this crime/coverup—involving the national security of our country—makes Watergate seem like a minor kerfuffle at a sewing circle. If the mainstream media does not investigate this thoroughly, they are unquestionably the court eunuchs many of us have accused them of being. Worse, they are the enablers of the decline of Western civilization. Without a free and honest press — some of it anyway — not to mention adherence to the rule of law, such a civilization cannot survive. And the decline can come remarkably swiftly. We have plenty of examples of that from twentieth century Europe.
40 years ago when the national media had a monopoly on news reporting we wouldn’t know about any of this. That same media will be working hard to give aid and comfort to this cover-up (the New York Times just endorsed Hillary for President) but they won’t be able to do a complete job because there are competing sources for information now. We could still use a new “deep Throat.”
A Wyoming Highway Patrol Trooper survived this head-on crash with a 23-year old man driving the wrong way on Interstate 90 near Sheridan. The man driving the wrong way was dead at the scene. Don’t know the trooper’s condition, just that he’s stable. I wish him a speedy recovery.
How does one get going the wrong way on an interstate? This seems to happen a lot in Wyoming. Well, maybe not. Colorado has its share of these.
Don’t know yet whether the wrong way driver was drunk or drugged up.
He does not hold grudges, he does not nurse animosity toward those who don’t like him. He gives as good as he gets, that’s for sure, but when it’s over, it’s over. That’s a good quality.
Here is the latest example I’ve seen of this. Republican Senator Mike Lee of Utah has campaigned for other candidates, and he has severely criticized Trump in the past. Lee endorsed Ted Cruz during the primaries. He still has not endorsed Trump.
Trump is going to release a second list of potential Supreme Court nominees sometime today. Guess who is on that list? Senator Mike Lee of Utah. I almost shed a tear of joy. Not just because Mike Lee would make an excellent replacement of Antonin Scalia. Lee clerked for Justice Samuel Alito, right now the one of the two best Justices on the Supreme Court, the other being Justice Clarence Thomas. I am also moved by the fact that Trump is showing that he considers the integrity of the Supreme Court to be essential and foremost, outweighing any personal conflict he may have with Senator Lee.
That is so refreshing, given the vengeful politics of the Left that has been forced upon the America people over the last 8 years.
Senator Lee’s brother, Thomas Lee, is a justice of the Utah Supreme Court.
Trump is also now working with Ted Cruz in an effort to get the Republican weak horses like Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan to stand up to Obama on his effort to transfer control of internet away from the United States, where it presently resides, to an international body. That transfer, if it happens, will make it easy for corrupt governments to censor the internet.
Trump’s willingness to work with Ted Cruz on keeping control of the internet in America and his willingness to consider Senator Mike Lee for the Supreme Court looks very “presidential” to me. I’m elated.
There’s also a highly qualified woman on Trumps’s second list, Margaret Ryan who was a law clerk to Justice Clarence Thomas. A Trump victory on November 8th is critically important to maintaining a Supreme Court that will save and protect the Constitution of the United States.
After the mass stabbing at a shopping mall in St. Cloud, Minnesota last week the owner of an ice cream shop put up a sign saying “Muslims Get Out.” Trevor Noah, host of The Daily Show takes the ice cream shop owner to task and unwittingly destroys the Left-Wing argument for gun control:
Thanks, Trevor Noah, for acknowledging what we’ve known all along but the Left denies when it suits them, that signs do not stop evil doers from doing what they do. So can we expect the Left to stop telling us that creating gun free zones will prevent gun violence? No, of course not. The Left will remain perfectly willing to make nonsensical arguments whenever it suits them.

Here is the one fact you need to know to push back the frontiers of poltical ignorance and begin to understand American politics. Five of the 6 richest counties in the United States are within a stone’s throw of the Washington D.C. beltway. From the 2012 American Community Survey:
The $15 minimum wage is being proposed and debated all around the state legislatures and city councils these days. The proponents are engaged in emotional thinking and going against the well established first rule of economics: If you raise the price of something, including unskilled labor jobs, there will be less of it.
The real minimum wage is always zero, because that is the wage that thousands, possibly millions of workers will receive following a government-mandated $15 minimum wage, because they will either lose their jobs or fail to find jobs when they enter the labor force. That’s a very cruel public policy … a cruelty that will inflict the most harm on the most vulnerable and disadvantaged among us. — Mark Perry, American Enterprise Institute
This issue hits home with me because even though my family never needed welfare (my mother would have died before ever accepting it anyway) it was important for me to contribute to my own support as soon as I was able. My mother didn’t have any money to give me much of an allowance so if I wanted money to spend I needed to earn it. I was fortunately able to do that because unskilled minimum wage jobs were plentiful when the minimum wage was set at a number actually lower than what most employers were paying for a kid like me. Thus, at age 15 I could get a job sacking groceries that gave me spending money. Later I got better paying jobs, but that came only after I had job experience to show that I was worth hiring.
An important lesson I learned was that getting a job is a lot easier if you already have a job of some kind. Mark Perry is right, the proposed $15 minimum wage will do the opposite of what the do-gooders and the politicians claim it will do. It will condemn a lot of teenagers from poor families to a marginal existence. It’s cruelty sold as love. It’s not tough love at all, it’s condemnation to a tougher life. Even if the politicians are well meaning, and that’s not at all certain, they are harming the most vulnerable among us.
