Bill’s desperate bid to humanize Hillary shows fear she might lose
Here’s a fact to chew on: Much of Day Two at the convention was spent trying to humanize Hillary Clinton. After 25 years in public life, she feels the need to tell us she cares.

This being a coronation, the circumstances grew in grandeur with each telling, until they made her sound like Mother Teresa. She’s so profoundly kind and tireless and honest and so full of grace, “she defies gravity.”
That Jihad Attack on the Orlando Gay Nightclub Never Happened, Says President Obama

Terror expert: Europe can survive ISIS without electing nutjobs
Europe is not new to terrorism, we’ve had much worse. If you look at the Algerian-inspired terrorism in the 1980’s and 1990s, the IRA in the UK, the Baader-Meinhof gang in Germany or the Red Brigades in Italy – these were groups that were challenging the order of countries and had significant backing from parts of the population.
And Europe survived without electing total nutjobs to powerful positions. We can manage terror without turning to the extreme right wing.

‘Every single migrant poses a public security and terror risk’ Migration is ‘poison’ for Europe, says Hungary PM
“Hungary does not need a single migrant for the economy to work, or the population to sustain itself, or for the country to have a future,” he told a joint press conference in Budapest with Austrian Chancellor Christian Kern.

Flashback: Michelle Obama Tells Black Grads That White People Make Life Tough
Michelle Obama has made numerous racially-charged statements in the past, but none so atrocious as her commencement speech at Alabama’s Tuskegee University on Saturday.
The historically black school welcomed the First Lady’s obscene comments, cheering as she implied over and over again that they will always judged by the color of their skin by their white colleagues.
Indeed, it appears as though FLOTUS is completely letting down her guard now that her husband is not up for another election. If you thought she was bad before, you’re bound to be appalled by the nauseating pandering she did this weekend.

Reparations. There is something you can do.
What if you actually did something meaningful for someone before the end of the year?
