Welcome To The Communist Party, U.S.A. – Daniel Greenfield
.

.
Wearing a white pantsuit, Hillary Clinton plodded out on stage to accept the nomination that she had schemed, plotted, lied, cheated, rigged and eventually fixed a series of elections to obtain.

Then she claimed that she was accepting the nomination of a race she had rigged with “humility”.

Humility is not the first word that comes to mind when thinking of Hillary Clinton. It is not even the last word. It is not in the Hillary dictionary at all. But this convention was a desperate effort to humanize Hillary. Everyone, including her philandering husband and dilettante daughter, down to assorted people she had met at one point, were brought up on stage to testify that she really is a very nice person…

Russia And China To Hold Joint Naval Drills In Contested South China Sea – Zero Hedge

When on July 12 we described the symbolic, if utterly meaningless ruling by the Hague’s Permanent Court of Arbitration on July 12, according to which China had no legal claim on most of the South China Sea (obviously, a ruling that China said repeatedly both before and after it would ignore), we said that “Ironically, in attempting to stem China’s territorial expansions in the region, the tribunal will likely just provoke Beijing even more.”

Just over two weeks later we got the first official confirmation that this is precisely what has happened, when overnight China’s Defense Ministry announced that China and Russia would hold “routine” naval exercises in the contested area in the South China Sea this coming September, “adding that the drills were aimed at strengthening their cooperation and were not aimed at any other country.”

Translation: the drills are aimed at the US, whose diplomatic relationship with “uber hacker” Russia is the worst it has been since the cold war, and whose ties with China have been deteriorating over the past several years, and culminating with July’s ruling which clearly pinpointed the biggest geopolitical tension point – the South China Sea.

As Reuters trivially adds, “the exercises come at a time of heightened tension in the contested waters after an arbitration court in The Hague ruled this month that China did not have historic rights to the South China Sea and criticized its environmental destruction there. China rejected the ruling and refused to participate in the case.”

“This is a routine exercise between the two armed forces, aimed at strengthening the developing China-Russia strategic cooperative partnership,” China’s defense ministry spokesman Yang Yujun told a regular monthly news conference.

“The exercise is not directed against third parties.”

Of course, it isn’t…

Media Silent On Bill Clinton Double Rape Bombshell – Breitbart

The U.S. news media has entirely ignored the newsworthy confirmation from Juanita Broaddrick that she was allegedly raped not once but twice by Bill Clinton during the same infamous encounter in 1978.

The story was splashed as the main banner of the Drudge Report for much of the day on Wednesday, after Bill Clinton brandished Hillary’s purported credentials as a champion of women on Tuesday night at the Democratic National Convention here.

In addition to its massive general readership, the Drudge Report is read widely throughout the day as a tip sheet of sorts by many in the news industry…

DOJ Knew About IRS Scandal 2 Years Before Congress But Did Nothing – Daily Signal

Recently unearthed documents reveal that the FBI knew the IRS was unfairly targeting groups because of their conservative politics two years before Congress even heard about the agency’s misconduct.

The revelation has already added fodder to the conservative case to impeach the current IRS Commissioner John Koskinen.

Almost 300 pages of documents released Thursday and obtained by Judicial Watch through the Freedom of Information Act confirm that the IRS subjected conservative groups to increased scrutiny beginning in 2011.

Even though the FBI uncovered the scandal in 2011, the documents show, the Department of Justice chose not to act.

In interviews with FBI agents, IRS officials said that a Cincinnati branch of their agency targeted conservative groups.

“Cincinnati was categorizing cases based on name and ideology, not just activity,” Nancy Marks, a senior official at the IRS, told the FBI. That was in the summer of 2011. The public wouldn’t learn of the scandal until May 2013…

DNC Paid Actors To Show Up At Convention & Cheer For Hillary After Hundreds Of Bernie Supporters Walked Out – Mad World News

Democrats want you to believe that they’ve worked out all of their unity issues and the convention is packed with adoring Hillary Clinton fans. However, there’s one big problem, and they just got busted.

Democrats found themselves with quite the problem when half of the convention-goers walked out in protest, leaving the Hillary campaign desperate. Now, because of Hillary’s big speech tonight, the Democratic National Committee is going to drastic lengths to make sure she has adoring fans in every seat at the convention.

Hillary’s big speech tonight is the one moment that the Democratic National Committee doesn’t want to get wrong, but now that almost half the delegates, being Bernie Sanders supporters, have walked out, panic set in. To add to their issue, most of the California delegation left completely, and their seats are up close to the stage…

Bill Clinton Falls Asleep During Hillary’s Convention Speech – Daily Caller

Bill Clinton apparently fell asleep during Hillary Clinton’s speech Thursday at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

Sitting in between Tim Kaine and Chelsea Clinton, Bill grabbed some quick shut eye while Hillary Clinton talked about ISIS.

The former secretary of state was saying, “We will disrupt their efforts online to reach and radicalize young people in our country. It won’t be easy or quick, but make no mistake – we will prevail.”

Apparently, Bill Clinton did not prevail over the desire to sleep.

Migrant Sex Criminal: I Hate Sweden, I’m Just Here To F#ck Swedish Girls – Breitbart

The victim of a man who allegedly sexually harassed four women has told a local newspaper that the migrant told them that he hates Sweden and is only there so that he can “f*** Swedish girls”.

In a central square in Vimmerby, in the early hours of Sunday morning, four women were approached by a migrant shouting abuse, who then pulled his trousers down in front of them.

The man started to follow the young women and when they asked him to stop, telling him they felt uncomfortable with his behaviour, the 27 year old became aggressive. One of the women told the Dagens Vimmerby that, after becoming agitated, the migrant then began screaming that he hates Sweden and telling them that he’s only in the country to “f*** Swedish girls” and spend their money.

The migrant then spat at the women, undressed in front of them and proceeded to urinate on a bench in the square. Police found the 27 year old in a side street shortly afterwards and arrested him on the spot for indecent exposure and sexual harassment.

It was later found that the suspect had previously received a deportation order, because his request for asylum was rejected as invalid. The man has now been transferred to Skåne province, where he is in custody waiting for the expulsion to be enforced. Calle Persson, one of the policemen on duty in Vimmerby that night, warned however that criminal cases against migrants can delay their deportation…

Charges Dismissed Against Remaining Officers In Freddie Gray Case – ABC News

Prosecutors in Baltimore dropped all charges against the three remaining Baltimore police officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray despite holding firm in their belief that Gray’s death was a homicide.

“We do not believe that Gray killed himself. We stand by the medical examiner’s determination that Freddie Gray’s death was a homicide,” Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby told reporters this morning, delivering a strong defense for her decision to prosecute six officers involved in Gray’s death.

At the motion’s hearing for State v Garrett Miller this morning, prosecutors announced they would not pursue the remaining cases related to the arrest and death of Gray, bringing to an end one of the most closely watched police prosecutions in the country. The gag order against all parties involved, including prosecutors and defense attorneys and their clients, has also been rescinded.

“After much thought and prayer it has become clear that without being able to work with an independent investigatory agency from the very start, without having a say in the election of whether cases proceed in front of a judge or jury, without communal oversight of police in this community, without substantive reforms to the current criminal justice system, we could try this case 100 times and cases just like it and we would still end up with the same result,” Mosby said, standing across the street from the location where Gray was arrested in April 2015.

Mosby charged six officers last year for their role in the arrest and death of Gray, a 25-year-old black man who died while in police custody after he suffered a fatal spinal injury while being transported in the back of a police transport van. Prosecutors aimed to show that the officers were criminally liable for failing to secure Gray with a seat belt after he was loaded into a police transport van…

Obama Spends $4 Million In Taxpayer Money To Hype Global Warming Alarm – WorldNetDaily

President Obama traveled late last year to Paris for an international conference so he could hype alarm over global warming.

He suggested at the time such an event was a “fitting response to the terrorist attacks that cost the lives of 130 people in and around Paris on Nov. 13,” the New York Times reported.

That’s even though the campaign against global warming has morphed into a campaign against “climate change” because there isn’t any more warming, and a new movie charges the entire effort is a “hustle” to redistribute the free world’s wealth.

The message Obama delivered cost American taxpayers more than $4 million.

The Washington watchdog Judicial Watch said it had obtained records from the Secret Service, the Air Force and others “detailing the costs of Obama’s trip to attend the 2015 Paris Climate Change Conference.”

Secret Service charges for Obama and his staff cost taxpayers $1,324,171.60 and flight expenses were $2,840,896.80, totaling at least $4,165,068.40 for the trip.

“To date, Obama’s known travel expenses total $83,795,502.33,” Judicial Watch said…

Sanders Delegates Walk Out Of Convention In Protest – Breitbart

Hundreds of delegates for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) walked out of the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday evening and staged a sit-in inside the media center in protest against a “rigged” election.

The delegates waited until the roll call vote to nominate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was complete, with Sanders himself closing the process. Then they donned black gags, raised protest signs, held their fists high, and walked out en masse.

Hundreds of delegates managed to enter the media center and sat down in the center of the first of three large tents inside the convention perimeter. Some chanted: “This is what democracy looks like!” Most were silent, and deferred media questions.

Police quickly closed the doors to the media center and prevented further protesters from entering. They also formed a cordon around the delegates on the floor. Some explained to police that they intended to be peaceful. The mood was tense but quiet.

Breitbart News spoke with one Sanders delegate, Theresa Haas of Texas, who explained that the party had done little to reach out to Sanders supporters, and that Hillary Clinton alienated them by choosing Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) as her running mate. As for whether she would consider voting for Donald Trump, she said: “That’s a decision that many people in here are going to have to make in November.” Others told Breitbart News that they intended to vote for Jill Stein of the Green Party…

Department Of Labor Admits It Destroyed Records After Six-Year FOIA Stonewall – Daily Caller

Leaked Emails Show How Hillary Lied To States And Robbed Them Blind – Conservative Tribune

The political world was stunned, though not particularly surprised, when Wikileaks published nearly 20,000 hacked documents from the Democrat National Committee just days before the start of its national convention.

The full extent of the fallout was not immediately known, as journalists continued to sift through the hugely incriminating data dump searching for interesting tidbits of embarrassing information regarding the collusion between the DNC and presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

One rather remarkable revelation was recently addressed by Politico, and it more or less confirmed suspicions raised months ago by the campaign of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and state-level Democrat party operatives.

At issue was the Hillary Victory Fund, a joint fundraising venture between the DNC and the Clinton campaign that seemingly funneled money through the state parties into the DNC, and from there into the Clinton campaign’s Hillary For America coffers.

Of the roughly $82 million raised through this effort, which would purportedly have been split between the campaign and the states, the state parties kept less than 1 percent of the total – a whopping $800,000, according to Federal Election Commission records…

Ted Cruz Favorability Rating Collapse Confirmed In National And Ohio Post-Convention Polls – Gateway Pundit

Ted Cruz’s failure to endorse rival Donald Trump for president at last week’s Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio has apparently caused his favorability rating among GOP voters to collapse, according to a national survey and an Ohio poll.

An NBC News/Survey Monkey nationwide poll released Tuesday and a PPP survey of Ohio Republicans released Monday confirms the shocking collapse in Cruz’ favorability rating among Republican voters following the convention seen in a CNN/ORC poll released Monday.

CNN/ORC:

“Cruz’s move, however, appears to have backfired. While 60% of Republican voters had a positive impression of the former presidential candidate before the convention, just 33% have one now.”

NBC News/Survey Monkey:

“Ted Cruz, who scored a strong round of boos when he declined to endorse Trump in his speech to the RNC, was not viewed kindly by Republicans voters. Though Cruz finished second in the GOP primary race, just 28 percent of members of his own party now view him favorably; 68 percent now view him unfavorably. Clearly, his performance at the GOP convention was not received well by his party.”

PPP Ohio:

“The biggest loser from the convention is Ted Cruz though. He has an 18/65 favorability rating with Ohio voters, making him by far and away the least popular figure in our poll. Even among Republicans he’s at just 23/61. We asked GOP voters who they would support in a hypothetical primary contest between Trump and Cruz, and Trump wins out 61-19.”…

DNC ‘Interfaith’ Prayer Space Has No Sign Of Any Religion Except Islam – Daily Caller

The Democratic National Convention has curtained off several “interfaith” spaces for prayer, but the only sign of religion in any of the spaces is Islam.

Convention goers looking to get in touch with the god of their choice can visit the “Interfaith Prayer Room” on the first floor of the Wells Fargo Center, which consists of a series of spaces sectioned off by curtains. A sign hangs over the first space, which is simply an empty room.

The second area has a few chairs and some prayer mats. A third large space is set up to accommodate Muslims, with a mat set up on the floor presumably facing Mecca and a sanitizing station so Muslims can wash before they pray.

A fourth space is another large empty room. Aside from Islam, no sign of any other religion was present.

Kind of surprising for a so-called interfaith prayer area. If they can set up a huge hand sanitizing station and figure out which way is Mecca, seems like grabbing a copy of a bible or a crucifix wouldn’t be a huge deal. Or a drum for the new age types. Or even some incense to help out Hindu believers. How about a pen and paper for believers who prefer to journal their prayers? Or a Jewish prayer book?

The spaces were also devoid of praying people, with the exception of one woman wearing Birkenstocks and a Bernie Sanders T-shirt plopped on the floor next to some chairs, casually swiping through her iPhone…

Boo Time: Hillary Gets Ugly Surprise At Chaotic DNC – WorldNetDaily

Democrats planned to make this week a show of strong unity in contrast to the divisions that appeared among Republicans last week, but instead they opened their national convention Monday afternoon with their national chairwoman resigning in scandal, Bernie Sanders supporters refusing to back the nominee and a litany of embarrassing correspondence.

The upheaval stems from from nearly 20,000 emails from the Democratic National Committee that were hacked and released Friday by Wikileaks.

While the emails are being examined, the exchanges already reveal the DNC actively supporting Hillary Clinton during the Democratic Party primaries and even hiring young people to argue with Bernie Sanders supporters on social media. The emails also show the DNC demanding things from liberal media outlets and personalities, referring to Latino outreach as “taco bowl outreach,” belittling donors behind their backs and orchestrating anti-Trump protests.

In response, DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz announced she would step down after the convention, but that timing got moved up after she was roundly booed by her own Florida delegation Monday morning in Philadelphia.

It’s exactly the start to the convention that the Democrats didn’t want.

“Given the cracks that appeared in the Republican convention last week, one of the things that the Democrats wanted to do in Philadelphia would be to contrast what they would say was Republican disarray with a smooth-running convention in Philadelphia,” said former Republican National Committee Deputy Chairman Frank Donatelli, who also served as political director in the Reagan administration…

The Democrats Manage To Violate Federal Immigration Law Yet Again At Their Convention – Hot Air

At this point, stories about Democrats breaking the law are quickly falling into the Dog Bites Man category, but this one is still worthy of note because of the national (and indeed international) platform where it was featured. There was a lengthy list of speakers at the DNC yesterday, each offering up red meat to the progressive base and pleas for unity with the disaffected supporters of Bernie Sanders, but one individual is receiving attention for precisely the wrong reasons.

Well before the headliners took the stage, the convention was addressed by Francisca Ortiz and her daughter Karla. She was addressing the subject of immigration – always a winner at Democratic gatherings – but Francisca comes to the subject from a background of specific expertise. She’s currently in the country illegally and is ignoring a standing deportation order. (In case Donna Brazil hasn’t heard, that’s still against the law.)

At Liberty Unyielding, J.E. Dyer highlights some of her background.

With the Democrats having put the first day of their national convention to bed, Dennis Michael Lynch notes that they’ve racked up two violations of Section 8 U.S. Code 1324.

What did they do to accomplish that? They knowingly hosted two adult illegal aliens as featured speakers at the convention.

One is a woman named Francisca (no last name given), who appeared at the speaker’s podium with her young daughter Karla. Francisca is currently ignoring a deportation order from the U.S. Government. Francisca and Karla are likely to be the pair featured in this June 2016 article in the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

The other is a young woman named Astrid Silva, who came to the U.S. illegally at the age of 4. Now in her mid-20s, Silva has been working on a bachelor’s degree at Nevada State College…

Race Baiters gonna race bait!

Kevin Blackistone used to write sports columns for years. Every column, no matter the subject, was turned into some commentary on racism by Blackistone. Looks like he is still suffering from Racial Obsession syndrome

During the Monday broadcast of “Around the Horn” on ESPN, Washington Post sports columnist and frequent ESPN panelist Kevin Blackistone reacted to NBA great Michael Jordan’s statementregarding the tension between African-Americans and law enforcement. In the statement, Jordan said he donated $1 million each to International Association of Chiefs of Police’s newly established Institute for Community-Police Relations and the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.

Blackistone does not think the NBA legend should have donated money to a police organization, reasoning that police departments would have more money if they “policed their communities a lot better and treated black people a lot more humanely.”

Kevin Blackistone could see something racist in ordering a salad. So, a police fund to help relations between police and Black Americans is awful somehow? Apparently so, I guess Blackistone just wants to be bitter

Your Self-Defense Story of the Day

The Cult of Gun Control dismisses the idea that Americans, hundreds of thousands, if not millions use firearms in self-defense every year. They recoil in horror at the very thought of parents teaching children how to shoot, and yes, how to use guns in self-defense. This story, via Bearing Arms, will drive these Cultists to drink

Kirk Puckett, a spokesperson for the Alamance County Sheriff’s Office, said a pair of young sisters from North Carolina stopped a home invasion when one of the girls armed herselfwith a rifle for protection.

It was around 12 p.m. Thursday when the 12 and 13-year-old girls, who were in their Snow Camp home on Lambe Road alone, heard someone knocking on the front door.

Peering outside, the girls saw three strange men standing outside – that’s when the older sister grabbed her dad’s rifle.

After they didn’t get an answer at the front door, the suspects went to the rear of the home and broke in through the back door.

Puckett said the 13-year-old was ready, and simply pointed the rifle at them when they entered the home.

Faced with an armed teenager, the trio immediately fled the scene.

Thankfully, these two girls were educated in what to do if someone broke in their home.

Japan knife attack leaves 15 dead, 45 wounded

Evil will always find a weapon, and will always target the most defenseless

Japanese police have arrested a man in connection with a deadly stabbing spree at a facility for the disabled, west of Tokyo, according to Japanese state broadcaster NHK.

The report, citing police, said 15 people are confirmed dead and 45 injured in Sagamihara.
The man told police that he was a former employee of the facility, according to the report.
