Time for Truth: Focus of Russia Probe Should Be on Clinton Conrad Black, NY Sun
Excerpt: To shake Mr. Podesta out of his own company, and incite rumors in the Democratic press that the Podestas are being investigated (Tony Podesta’s brother, John Podesta, was Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager), means that Mr. Mueller is already much closer to lifting the rock all the way on the Clintons and President Obama than he is to finding anything vulnerable around President Trump or his campaign.
Mr. Mueller is at the bifurcation of the road. After more than a year, there is not much more to try to find about the Trump campaign and Russia, since nothing happened and Russia’s contribution was to release a number of emails it had illegally hacked, which embarrassed but did not convict any Democrat, and to contribute $6,500 in Facebook advertisements decrying chaos in the country without supporting a candidate, in an election where the two main candidates spent $1,850,000,000 between them.
So, here's the real question. Will Robert Muller actually act with integrity and pursue the Obama/Clinton/DNC investigation to its conclusion, or since we already know he was at least complicit in the Uranium 1 conspiracy, will he throw the kitchen sink at the three he's indicted and call it a day? I'd like to believe that we're still a country that believes in the rule of law with equitable treatment under it but with the Clintons and all associates still free and despite legally submitted documents that prove illegal activities were committed by them - I'm skeptical at best. I'd love a faith restoring moment.
We're Becoming Numb to Terrorism. That Might Be a Good Thing Sean Illing, Vox
This is important for all of the wrong reasons. If you missed my piece on this topic yesterday I implore you to take it in today: https://wjno.iheart.com/featured/brian-mudd/content/2017-11-02-its-sad-that-we-were-only-sad-about-the-nyc-terror-attack/
If we embrace that narrative. That this is acceptable it's over for this country as we knew it. We'll become no different than the Islamic world that's victimized near daily. This is still about Islam. It is evil when practiced under Sharia. If you think evil being accepted as normal is a good thing - you're complicit in evil. You're complicit in Islamic terrorism.
Democrats' Suicidal Addiction to Racial Identity Politics Ed Rogers, Washington Post
Excerpt: It is easy to see that liberals’ insistence on politically correct identity politics isn’t just idiotic. In the past 24 hours, we are reminded that it is also dangerous.
Even though it is mostly an inside-the-Beltway story, the Democrats’ latest example of racially tinged hypocrisy is revealing. According to its website, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) “is an equal opportunity employer” — except when it’s not. Here’s an example. According to recent reports, a DNC official wrote in an email to her Democrat colleagues that she would prefer to exclude “cisgender straight white males” from consideration for jobs with the DNC’s technology department “since they’re already in the majority.” It says a lot that in response to this email, an anonymous DNC source told the Daily Wire: “Clearly the DNC is doubling down on a failed strategy that has alienated staffers and voters alike. We want to be judged based on the quality of our work, not on identity politics. How can we trust the leadership of the DNC if they don’t even trust us?” And that’s from a Democrat. I couldn’t have said it better myself.
I cannot emphasize enough the need to stand up with truth and integrity in the face of these bigots. Racism and bigotry is on display daily by the left. This is just the latest example. Imagine for a moment this were the RNC & it fit the false narrative stereo-type. You haven't heard about this because the GSS protect racism and bigotry among its political allies on the left. Just as they protected sexual predators in Hollywood. It's not about people. It's about political outcomes.
