SHE LIED! Hillary’s Tearjerker About Handicapped Girl in Wheelchair in DNC Speech WAS ALL A LIE!

SHE LIED! Hillary’s Tearjerker About Handicapped Girl in Wheelchair in DNC Speech WAS ALL A LIE!

On Thursday night Hillary Clinton delivered her acceptance speech at the DNC Convention in Philadelphia.
The transcript was posted at the LA Times.

hillary socialist

Hillary told the crowd about a poor suffering handicapped girl in a wheelchair in New Bedford, Massachusetts who could not go to school because of her disability. Hillary said she helped the girl get to school.

Hillary told the crowd about how she helped that girl get to school.

“My mother, Dorothy, was abandoned by her parents as a young girl. She ended up on her own at 14, working as a housemaid. She was saved by the kindness of others.

Her first-grade teacher saw she had nothing to eat at lunch and brought extra food to share the entire year. The lesson she passed on to me, years later, stuck with me: No one gets through life alone. We have to look out for each other and lift each other up.

And she made sure I learned the words from our Methodist faith: “Do all the good you can, for all the people you can, in all the ways you can, as long as ever you can.”

“So, I went to work for the Children’s Defense Fund, going door-to-door in New Bedford, Mass., on behalf of children with disabilities who were denied the chance to go to school.

I remember meeting a young girl in a wheelchair on the small back porch of her house. She told me how badly she wanted to go to school — it just didn’t seem possible in those days. And I couldn’t stop thinking of my mother and what she’d gone through as a child.

It became clear to me that simply caring is not enough. To drive real progress, you have to change both hearts and laws. You need both understanding and action.

So we gathered facts. We built a coalition. And our work helped convince Congress to ensure access to education for all students with disabilities.”

But it was ALL A LIE.

Wasserman Schultz’s problems aren’t over yet

Wasserman Schultz’s problems aren’t over yet
By Lisa Hagen - 07-31-16 10:30 AM EDT

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz's political troubles aren't over yet.

The Florida Democrat is facing the toughest political race of her life after ending her controversial tenure as leader of the Democratic National Committee (DNC).

Her House seat is on the line in a primary race against well-funded challenger Tim Canova, and the battle is heating up amid the fallout from her resignation following the leak of hacked emails that showed DNC officials plotting to undermine Sen. Bernie Sanders's (I-Vt.) presidential campaign in the Democratic primary.

Some think the race has changed after the former chairwoman's tough week.

"I think this has really shifted the race," said Kathryn DePalo, a political science professor at Florida International University. "I think she's going to have a tough fight. I think she's probably going to win, but it'll be close."

She added that a Canova victory would not be a surprise. "I think that's how devastating these email leaks have been," DePalo said.

Wasserman Schultz was booed off the stage by Sanders supporters at the Florida delegation breakfast on the first day of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia last week.

"The constant refrain that I heard is she can eke it out," said Susan MacManus, a political science professor at University of South Florida in Tampa.

But MacManus said it won't be without a fight.

"She's got to come home and work her constituency," she said. "She hasn't had to for years."

State Sen. Eleanor Sobel, a Clinton delegate whose district overlaps with Wasserman Schultz's congressional district, also attended the breakfast and brushed off the prospect that this will hurt Wasserman Schultz's reelection bid.

"Most people understand Debbie as someone who is very caring," Sobel said. "She's part of the fabric of our community."

Canova has been trying to build momentum.

He's already raised an eye-popping $2.3 million since entering the race in January, and his alignment with Sanders has won him attention and an endorsement from the senator himself.

Canova said he's been nonstop campaigning for the past eight months as he criss-crosses the district to meet as many constituents as possible. The DNC leak exudes her "bad judgment" and has rallied more people to his campaign, he said.

"We're seeing a lot of energy come our way," Canova told The Hill. "We built a very good field operation to ride the wave that's come in now."

A political consulting firm run by top aides to the Sanders campaign has joined Canova. The firm, run by Tad Devine, Julian Mulvey and Mark Longabaugh, was tasked with handling advertising as well as advising Sanders during the primary.

One big question is whether Sanders will campaign for Canova in Florida.

Canova said he spoke to Sanders's campaign manager before the convention and that talks will continue, but no plans have been confirmed.

Wasserman Schultz, the state's first Jewish congresswoman, is a well-known fixture in her predominantly Jewish district. Her campaign did not return a request for comment.

She also appears to have an advantage in that her constituents voted overwhelmingly for Clinton in the March primary.

Those who live in her district describe her as a tireless campaigner who's well liked and well known.

Some observers are skeptical Canova can win in a summer primary that will likely have low turnout.

"While I'm sure that there is some impact, I don't think that we should overstate the impacts because I think that the folks in her home district are the ones that know her the most," said Ashley Walker, a Florida Democratic strategist.

Wasserman Schultz's main priority will be to engage with constituents and have a constant presence in her district. Her campaign will also have a bit of catching up to do: Canova's campaign has been running TV and radio ads for the past three weeks.

"I think she needs to get out there face-to-face, get out to the groups all over the district," DePalo said. "That's the way I think she can turn things around is being out there."

Even with all eyes suddenly drawn to the race, it's still difficult to predict the outcome with no polling currently available. But if someone is able to unseat Wasserman Schultz, observers say it's Canova.

"If anyone's going to beat her, it's a Democrat from her left with $2 million," said Kevin Hill, a political science professor at Florida International University.

Study: Law-Abiding Firearm Owners Really Don't Commit Gun Crimes (Which Is What We've Been Telling You All Along)

Matt Vespa

Well, what do you know? It looks like what we’ve been saying about gun crimes being committed mostly by people who shouldn’t have them turns out not to be NRA-backed propaganda, but…the facts. For what seems like millennia, the pro-Second Amendment crowd has said ad nauseum that the vast majority of gun owners are law-abiding, and that the vast majority of gun crimes are committed by people who shouldn’t firearms to begin with. It’s not a radical concept, nor is the notion that more gun control laws would only harm the honest gun owners, while having zero impact on the criminal element in this country. 

In a new study by the University of Pittsburgh, it was discovered that law-abiding gun owners were responsible for less than a fifth of all gun crimes (via WaPo):

In the study, led by epidemiologist Anthony Fabio of Pittsburgh's Graduate School of Public Health, researchers partnered with the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police to trace the origins of all 893 firearms that police recovered from crime scenes in the year 2008.

They found that in approximately 8 out of 10 cases, the perpetrator was not a lawful gun owner but rather in illegal possession of a weapon that belonged to someone else. The researchers were primarily interested in how these guns made their way from a legal purchase — at a firearm dealer or via a private sale — to the scene of the crime.

"All guns start out as legal guns," Fabio said in an interview. But a "huge number of them" move into illegal hands. "As a public-health person, I'd like to be able to figure out that path," he added.

More than 30 percent of the guns that ended up at crime scenes had been stolen, according to Fabio's research. But more than 40 percent of those stolen guns weren't reported by the owners as stolen until after police contacted them when the gun was used in a crime.

One of the more concerning findings in the study was that for the majority of guns recovered (62 percent), "the place where the owner lost possession of the firearm was unknown."

Christopher Ingraham, who wrote the article, added that straw purchases are also a major factor in guns getting into the wrong hands. As evidence to that fact, he mentioned that 44 percent of gun owners identified in the 2008 study did not return calls from law enforcement. Yet, the rate and lack of initiative on behalf of gun owners reporting their firearms stolen, or approaching law enforcement, is a bit disconcerting. Maybe here the federal and state government could lend a hand in incentivizing making sure more people safely store their firearms. I’m not saying that gun owners are irresponsible, but maybe here is where federal and state governments could pass laws that incentivize more secure storage: allow gun owners to write gun safes off their taxes.

The Secure Firearms Act was proposed in 2013, but died at the end of the session. It offered a $1,200 deduction to any citizen for the cost of a gun safe. Maybe double or triple that amount—do something that could incentivize more Americans to participate in gun safe buying. First of all, who wouldn’t want he chance to get a $1,200 deduction in the first place? I bet you could get a lot more if that figure were increased a bit. Granted, this is just one piece of policy that could be debated. Frankly, the best ways to effectively stress properly storage is have the National Shooting Sports Foundation, The National Rifle Association, and other pro-gun rights groups conduct public service campaigns of their own to stress the issue, but we all know that anti-gun liberals are going to protest, whine, or go indiscriminately insane if these groups start talking about gun safety. 

In fact, there’s an almost 100 percent chance the talk about proper storage in this context would be hijacked by gun control crowd’s incessant need to discuss expanded background checks. Nevertheless, it’s the right thing to do if this were to happen. Yet, the real issue here is that gun owners are law-abiding, and criminals don’t obtain their firearms legally. But I know all we will get from the anti-gun Left is a big eyeroll.

Key coalition partner rejects Merkel’s stance on refugees

(Paul Mirengoff)

Undeterred by recent murders committed by Muslim refugees, Angela Merkel stands fully behind her decision to admit more than 1 million Syrian refugees. She made this clear in a recent press conference the theme of which was “we can still do this.”

But Merkel’s key coalition partner, Horst Seehofer the premier of Bavaria, today rejected this view. “‘We can do this’ – I cannot, with the best will, adopt this phrase as my own,” Seehofer said following a meeting of his Christian Social Union party, the Bavarian counterpart of Merkel’s party. 

Seehofer explained:

The problem is too big for that and the attempts at a solution thus far too unsatisfactory. Restrictions on immigration are a condition for security in this country.”

Bavaria has been hard hit by immigration-related violence. The killing spree by the Iranian-German took place at a shopping center in Munich. Bavaria was also the site of the attack by a Syrian asylum seeker at a music festival in Ansbach and the ax and knife attack by an Afghan asylum seeker that occurred on a train.

It wasn’t until the day after the Munich attack that Merkel got around to talking about it. President Obama beat her by 17 hours.

Merkel seems tone deaf and out of touch on this issue. In her recent statement, she insisted:

Despite the great unease these events inspire, fear can’t be the guide for political decisions. It is my deep conviction that we cannot let our way of life be destroyed.

But Germans are coming to realize that mass immigration from Muslim countries threatens their way of life. Perhaps the best evidence of this can be found not in the recent killings as horrifying as they are, but rather in the spate of sexual assaults, most notably the spree that took place in Cologne on New Year’s Eve.

The Daily Mail claims that Merkel’s premiership is now “hanging by a thread.” I don’t know whether that is so, but her popularity — which had plummeted only to revive following the Brexit — is sure to take a hit given the recent violence. 

The Daily Mail cites a poll in which 83 per cent of Germans saw immigration as their nation’s biggest challenge – twice as many as a year ago. Surely a big portion of that 83 percent agrees with Merkel’s Bavarian ally that her “solution thus far [is] too unsatisfactory.”

Indeed, Internet pollster YouGov foundthat 48 percent of Germans do “not agree at all” that Germany can manage the refugee influx and another 18 percent said they “slightly disagree.” Taken together, that’s two-thirds of Germans. Less than a quarter of respondents had confidence in Merkel’s “we can do this” mantra.

Merkel has always seemed pragmatic and clear-headed. Why did she commit Germany to taking in such a vast number of Syrian refugees?

Last year, I tried to answer the question this way:

I don’t doubt that there is a humanitarian component to Merkel’s decision, and in some respects her willingness to take in so many refugees is a feel good story. But keep in mind that Germany has an economic interest in bringing in young workers, and that this interest isn’t mirrored in many other EU member states.

Germany faces a severe labor shortage, both short-term and long-term. A study by the Robert Bosch foundation suggested that Germany’s workforce could shrink by about 6 million by 2030.

I also wonder whether Merkel really grasped what the sudden influx of a million or more Muslim refugees would mean for Germany. It’s fair to ask whether Merkel understands Islamism. Perhaps her model was based on the Turkish immigrants of the past. But they came from a basically secular nation at a time when Islamist extremism wasn’t nearly the force it has become.

Jens Spahn, deputy finance minister and a senior member of Merkel’s conservatives, seemed to confirm this explanation.  He admits: “My impression is that we all underestimated a year ago what would come upon us with this big refugee and migration movement.”

But not “all” did. In his comments today, Seehofer said that ““all our predictions [about the impact of Merkel’s policies] have been proven right.”

In all likelihood, Seehofer’s assessment that Merkel’s government continues to “underestimate” what’s in store will also be proven right.

Koch Brothers’ Network: We’re not Helping Trump or Clinton

In this May 22, 2012 file photo, Charles Koch speaks in his office at Koch Industries in Wichita, Kansas. Billionaire industrialist and conservative benefactor Koch is hosting hundreds of the nation's most powerful political donors this weekend in Colorado. The exclusive gathering at the foot of the Rocky Mountains is open to donors who promise to give at least $100,000 each year to Koch-approved groups.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- From a luxury hotel on the edge of the Rocky Mountains, some of the nation’s most powerful Republican donors are rebelling against Donald Trump.

Billionaire industrialist Charles Koch, host of the exclusive weekend retreat, did not mention Trump by name as he warned that political leaders are giving “frightening” answers to America’s challenges. One of his chief lieutenants was more direct as he made clear that Koch’s expansive political network would not use its tremendous resources to help Trump win this fall.

“We’re focused on the Senate,” said Mark Holden, general counsel and senior vice president of Koch Industries.

He noted that none of the presidential candidates are aligned with the Koch network “from a values, and beliefs and policy perspective.” Trump’s dire warnings of growing crime in America, Holden said, simply aren’t accurate.

“We’re much safer,” Holden said. “That’s what the data shows.”

Koch described the 2016 “political situation” this way: “We don’t really, in some cases, don’t really have good options.”

The comments came Saturday, the first of a three-day gathering for donors who promise to give at least $100,000 each year to the various groups backed by the Koch brothers’ Freedom Partners -- a network of education, policy and political entities that aim to promote a smaller, less intrusive government.

The ambitious Koch network has invested hundreds of millions of dollars to influence politics and public policy over the last decade, but don’t plan to spend anything to help Trump, even if some of the 400 or so deep-pocketed donors gathered in Colorado Springs this weekend think it should.

Trump thumbed his nose at the gathering from Twitter.

“I turned down a meeting with Charles and David Koch,” the New York billionaire tweeted. “Much better for them to meet with the puppets of politics, they will do much better!”

The weekend’s agenda for the estimated 400 donors gathered in Colorado Springs featured a series of policy discussions and appearances from at least three governors, four senators and four members of the House of Representatives, including House Speaker Paul Ryan.

Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin and Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey talked up policy successes in their states on Saturday night, avoiding discussion of the 2016 presidential contest altogether. When it was his turn, Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner touched on the race for the White House, although he did not mention Trump’s name.

“Forty years worth of Supreme Court justices are going to be determined this November,” Gardner told donors, a reference to the next president’s ability to fill at least one existing vacancy on the high court.

Those yet to appear include Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Texas Sen. John Cornyn, South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, Utah Sen. Mike Lee, Rep. Mike Pompeo of Kansas. Rep Jason Chaffetz of Utah and Rep. Mike Coffman of Colorado.

Koch later told his guests that America’s frustrated electorate is looking at the wrong place -- politicians -- for answers.

“And to me, the answers they’re getting are frightening,” he said without naming any politicians, “because by and large, these answers will make matters worse.”

Charles and David Koch have hosted such gatherings of donors and politicians for years, but usually in private. The weekend’s event includes a small number of reporters, including one from The Associated Press.

Koch has put the network’s budget at roughly $750 million through the end of 2016.

A significant portion was supposed to be directed at electing a Republican to the White House. It will instead go to helping Republican Senate candidates in at least five states: Ohio, Pennsylvania, Nevada, Wisconsin and Florida, Holden said, noting that the network has dedicated $42 million so far to television and digital advertising to benefit Republican Senate candidates.

In some cases, the network may try to link Democratic Senate candidates to Clinton, he added, but there are no plans to go after her exclusively in paid advertising. The organization may invest in a handful of races for governor and House of Representatives as well.

And while the network will not be a Trump ally, it won’t necessarily be a Trump adversary either.

“We have no intention to go after Donald Trump,” Holden said.

Pope Visits Auschwitz, Begs God to Forgive ‘So Much Cruelty’

OSWIECIM, Poland (AP) -- Choosing silence to convey his sorrow, Pope Francis visited the former Nazi death factory at Auschwitz and Birkenau on Friday, meeting with concentration camp survivors as well as aging saviors who helped Jews escape certain doom. In a guest book entry he made an anguished plea: “Lord, forgiveness for so much cruelty!”

Wearing unadorned white robes, Francis entered Auschwitz on foot, passing through the gate that bears the cynical words “Arbeit Macht Frei” -- Work Sets You Free.

One by one, he greeted 11 survivors, among them 101-year-old Helena Dunicz Niwinska, who played the violin in a death camp orchestra, and two other centenarians. One survivor, Valentina Nikodem, helped deliver babies born to Auschwitz inmates.

Elzbieta Sobczynska, who was 10 when she was brought to Auschwitz in 1944 from the Warsaw ghetto, said that in his silence, Francis spoke volumes.

“You don’t need words. Prayer was enough,” Sobczynska said, speaking to Poland’s TVN24.

Francis, she said, “came here with humility, he came here to find the shadows of those who were stripped of the most precious thing -- life.”

The pope then traveled to nearby Birkenau, a sprawling complex where people were murdered in factory-like fashion in its gas chambers.

There he greeted 25 Holocaust rescuers, including Anna Bando, who as a child helped her mother smuggle bread hidden in their handbags to Jews forced by Nazi occupiers to stay in Warsaw’s ghetto.

Francis’ visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau, where Adolf Hitler’s forces put to death more than 1 million people, most of them Jews, came on the third day of a five-day trip to Poland that included meetings with young Catholic pilgrims gathering in Krakow for World Youth Day, a global celebration of faith.

Except for the brief exchange with the survivors and rescuers, Francis spent his nearly two hours at the death camps in quiet prayer and reflection.

The pope wanted an “atmosphere of silence, silent compassion, silent prayer,” said Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi.

His only public words were in a guest-book entry, where he wrote in his native Spanish: “Lord, have mercy on your people! Lord, forgiveness for so much cruelty!” He then signed his name in Latin, “Franciscus.”

Later, however, Francis spoke with passion about his Auschwitz visit to a crowd of young people gathered outside the archbishop’s residence where he was staying for the night.

“How much pain! How much cruelty! Is it possible that we humans created in God’s image are capable of doing these things?” the pontiff said of the atrocities 70 years ago.

Then he added: “I don’t want to make you bitter, but I have to say the truth. Cruelty did not end in Auschwitz, in Birkenau. Even today … people are being tortured. Many prisoners are tortured, just to make them talk.”

“Today in many parts of the world where there is war the same thing is happening.”

Francis is the first pope to visit Auschwitz who did not himself live through the brutality of World War II on Europe’s soil.

Unlike his predecessors, St. John Paul II and Benedict XVI, who were young men during the Nazi rule and occupation of much of Europe and had a personal or historical connection to the site, Francis was a toddler when World War II broke out far away from his Argentine homeland.

John Paul, who visited in 1979, witnessed the unspeakable suffering inflicted on his native Poland during the German occupation. His visit, the first ever by a pontiff, was part of his overall efforts aimed at healing centuries of bitterness between the Vatican and Jews.

His successor, Pope Benedict XVI, who visited in 2006, was a German who served in the Hitler Youth for a time as a teenager.

At Auschwitz, Francis prayed silently for more than 15 minutes before speaking individually to the survivors, shaking their hands and kissing them on the cheeks. He then carried a large white candle to the Death Wall, where prisoners at Auschwitz were executed.

At the dark underground prison cell that once housed St. Maximilian Kolbe, a Polish friar who sacrificed his life to save a fellow prisoner who had a family, Francis prayed again. A few shafts from a tiny window were the only light cast on the pontiff.

He then traveled two miles (three kilometers) to Birkenau, where Christian Poles who saved Jews during the war and other guests stood in respect as the pope arrived, his vehicle driving alongside the rail tracks once used to transport victims to their deaths there.

At the Birkenau ceremony, Poland’s chief rabbi, Michael Schudrich, recited, in Hebrew Psalm 130, beginning with the words: “From the depths I have cried out to you, Oh Lord.”

Friday’s theme exploring suffering included a Way of the Cross procession that drew 800,000 young Catholics to a Krakow meadow.

Now That The DNC’s Over, Let’s Look at the Most Absurd Elements of Their Hacked Email Leak

In this July 28, 2016 photo, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton reacts after speaking during the final day of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. For eight summer nights, there were two starkly different visions of America at the Republican and Democratic political conventions.  (AP Photo/John Locher)

Wikileaks released nearly 20,000 emails from Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffers just days before the convention kicked off.

The leaks, dating from January 2015 to May 2016, reveal Democratic staffers colluding with certain media outlets and discussing how to best undermine Sen. Bernie Sanders, among other embarrassing revelations. Despite the magnitude of the hack and its consequences for DNC leadership, there is certainly some humor to be found in the emails.

In the spirit of an election that feels more like a reality show than a formal bid for president, we've rounded up some of the funniest -- and most ridiculous -- emails from the DNC email leak.

The White House vetoed having Ariana Grande perform at the presidential gala because of a video of her licking donuts.

"Can we also vet Arianna Grande?" DNC Finance Chair Zachary Allen wrote in an email, misspelling the famous pop singer's name. What followed was a back-and-forth email exchange vividly discussing a video of Grande licking donuts and saying she hates America (with DNC staffers continuing to misspell her name).

The vetting email summarizes, "Ariana Butera -- video caught her licking other peoples' donuts while saying she hates America; Republican Congressman used this video and said it was a double standard that liberals were not upset with her like they are with Trump who criticized Mexicans." White House employee Bobby Schmuck abruptly shot down the performance request, writing back, "Nope, sorry."

Literally no one ever took John Kasich seriously

The DNC created fake, sexist ads from the Trump campaign

Deputy communications director Christina Freundlich proposed the Democrats impersonate the Trump Organization on Craigslist. In an email to fellow DNC staffers Mark Paustenbach and Luis Miranda, Freundlich asks for their approval for the fake ad, which seeks "hot women" who "must be open to public humiliation" and "should be proficient in lying about age if the boss thinks you're too old."

DNC2 - 500


DNC staffers mocked a (now accurate) Buzzfeed report that suggests both the DNC and RNC had weak cybersecurity

"The dumbest thing I've ever read," reads the subject line of a May email sent from DNC spokesman Eric Walker to an email list. The subject includes the headline to the Buzzfeed story, "These Experts Think The DNC And RNC Are Both Horrible At Cybersecurity," which the staffers go on to mock in the body of the email.

One DNC official casually suggested using Sanders' religion to undermine his credibility

In a May 2016 email, Chief Financial Officer Brad Marshall suggests that the DNC "gets someone" to question Sanders' faith at speeches in Kentucky and West Virginia. "Does he believe in God. He had skated on saying he has Jewish heritage," Marshall asked. "This could make several points difference with my peeps. My Southern Baptist peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and an atheist," he added.

Staffer Amy K. Dacey responded to that message with: "AMEN."

DNC party officials entertained the conspiracy theory that Cruz's dad killed JFK

Luis Miranda, the DNC communications director, gives some credit to Trump's conspiracy theory that Ted Cruz's father killed JFK. "It would not be unusual for [his father] to be caught up in the ugly web of Cuban militants with questionable histories," he notes in the May email.

DNC staffers actually used the phrase "Bernie Bro"

DNC3 - 500



Miranda and other staffers used the term several times in response to an interview request from Mark Thompson, a radio host for Sirius XM and a Sanders fan. The term "Bernie Bro" refers to outspoken, aggressive white males who support Bernie Sanders.

Many involved in the emails have not yet issued public statements -- including Ariana Grande, whose donut-licking video will likely haunt her forever after she realizes it cost her a White House performance.
