Shaming the Democrats Back in Line

Atlantic, by Alex Wagner Posted By: garnet- Wed, 27 13 2016 12:13:29 GMT On the heels of a Republican National Convention characterized by plagiarism, treason, and chaos, one might have thought that this week would be a layup for Democrats eager to trade on competence and cohesion. So far, it hasn’t been. The first half of the first day of the Democratic convention was characterized by a nasty and very public bout of party indigestion. Amid loud booing and generally very bad vibes, soon’to’be’resigned Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz relinquished her last vestige of authority and ceded her gavel to Democratic National Convention Secretary Stephanie Rawlings’Blake to officially begin the proceedings. Several hours

Daily Mail [UK], by Paul Thompson* Posted By: Attercliffe- Wed, 27 29 2016 12:29:18 GMT A second hostage who was savagely attacked by ISIS ´soldiers´ at a Normandy church survived the ordeal after playing dead on the floor, it has emerged. Fanatics ordered the 87-year-old, named as ‘Guy’, to video the brutal killing of Father Jacques Hamel on a phone. The pensioner was then knifed in the neck, arms and back next to the altar, according to his wife, whose life was spared. The shocking new details emerged as it was revealed one of the ISIS priest killers was awaiting trial on terror charges and on house arrest with an electronic tag that let him free in

After Bill´s speech — is it ´change maker´ Hillary or ´steady´ Hillary?

Washington Examiner, by Byron York Posted By: drive- Wed, 27 30 2016 12:30:13 GMT PHILADELPHIA — The staff at the Democratic National Convention is very good at handing out props. Is Michelle Obama about to speak? Hand out the big cardboard sticks with MICHELLE in vertical letters. Is Meryl Streep about to congratulate the audience on making history? Make sure everybody has a HISTORY sign. Did anyone say STRONGER TOGETHER? Of course there´s a sign for that. And is Bill Clinton about to attempt to sell his wife, in national office or the national spotlight for a quarter’century, as a “change maker”? Distribute the CHANGE MAKER signs. But convincing voters that Hillary Clinton is a

How To Ditch A Media That Vets Its Stories With The DNC

The Federalist, by Leslie Loftis Posted By: garnet- Wed, 27 37 2016 12:37:08 GMT Disillusion with the two main parties is high. Even a casual consumer of political news can feel that. The Republicans just put on Mourning in America,* and while no one is sure how many once’reliable Republican voters are now repelled by demands for unity, it is likely more than those who put their faith in Donald Trump anticipate. The Democratic convention has arrived. If they only go positive, they can get a bigger bounce than the small one it looks like Republicans got. That’s before considering their news media advantages, which the WikiLeaks emails in last week prove are just as

As ISIS Attacks Mount, Dems Target The Real Threats: Refrigerators And The Rich

Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff Posted By: RockyTCB- Wed, 27 37 2016 12:37:48 GMT As ISIS and its acolytes are busy carrying out more terrorist attacks, Democrats are busy minimizing the alarming threat that the terror group poses, when they aren´t ignoring it altogether. In the past 12 months, ISIS launched or inspired nearly 40 terrorist attacks around the world that have claimed more than 1,600 lives. Almost a third of those deaths occurred in this month alone. The latest includes the murder of a Catholic priest in Normandy, France, on Tuesday by two ISIS terrorists. Two days earlier, a Syrian suicide bomber ” who´d pledged allegiance to ISIS ” attacked a music festival in Ansbach,

Why Are ´Progressives´ Fighting Against Uber and Airbnb?

Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff Posted By: RockyTCB- Wed, 27 39 2016 12:39:00 GMT Recently, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, one of the most liberal Democrats around, declared war on start’up companies that are helping middle’class families make ends meet and are providing a great new service to millions of customers. Why? Because they challenge the liberal status quo. In her keynote speech at the Democratic National Convention on Monday, Warren talked about how Democrats are always fighting for the middle class. “Try to do something, anything, for working people, and you´ll have a fight on your hands,” she said. What Warren didn´t say is that it´s liberals like herself who are often picking the fight. Take Airbnb as

For Democrats, Is It ´Great America´ Or ´Hate America´?

Investor´s Business Daily, by Terry Jones Posted By: RockyTCB- Wed, 27 40 2016 12:40:41 GMT PHILADELPHIA — In recent days, Democrats at the convention have repeatedly said “America is already great,” an obvious rejoinder to Donald Trump´s now’famous catchphrase, “make America great again.” Fair enough. But if those attending this convention think America is great, they have a funny way of showing it. No American flags. Little visible appreciation for the blessings our country confers on all who are born here. Just resentment, anger, and a surprising number of flags of foreign tyrannies, like Cuba and Nicaragua. And if Democrats think America is already great, why are they seeking to change it to its very roots? By the
