Final Word On Benghazi: No New Evidence Of Wrongdoing By Hillary Clinton Comments (0)

The committee allegedly charged with seeking answers in the Benghazi attack has come up empty, failing to do what it was really trying to do all along—provide evidence that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was asleep at the wheel and therefore somehow to blame. (Trump mouthpiece tweeted that Hillary quote unquote murdered an ambassador. Good to know.)

While they do use the report to claim Hillary should've realized the situation was dangerous (you mean as in ignoring a memo entitled BIN LADIN DETERMINED TO STRIKE IN U.S.?), there's nothing to see here, folks, except more evidence that this entire inquiry was a witch hunt.

And the “witch” escaped, so move on.

*widget boy cultureIn other news, Hillary's PUSH bio included a reference to Monica Lewinsky! It's being written off as a staffer's “brain freeze.” Don't cut-and-paste from Wikipedia.

*widget boy cultureSanders' backers are, by and large, rallying to Hillary. Maybe. Except in Texas.

This'll Make Your Gay Blood Boil: Pastor Wishes Wounded Orlando Victims Would Die Comments (0)

Fort Worth pastor Donnie Romero is yet another alleged man of God who is cheering the Orlando mass shooting.

I guess queer-hating trumps Muslim-hating.

Romero was quoted saying of the tragedy:

These 50 Sodomites were all perverts and pedophiles and they are the scum of the earth and the earth is a little bit better place now, and I’ll even take it a little further I heard on the news today that there are still several dozen of these queers in ICU and I will pray that God will finish the job that that man started.

He further said:

The Bible teaches they are predators, and I believe that every Sodomite is a pedophile and is a predator ... Just like if there was a building that had a bunch of rapists or a bunch of evil murderous people, and the building collapsed on them, or something happened where they were all killed, I don't think that's something we should mourn over, because they're evil people.

It's hate speech, plain and simple. I'm not sure I support this as free speech; it seems designed to dehumanize and to encourage violence. It's also just damn un-American.

This Is Why Booing Was Invented Comments (0)

The anti-LGBT mayor of San Antonio, Texas, Ivy Taylor, tried to suck up some brownie points by offering to pray for the victims in Orlando at a vigil, but her constituents—who are well aware of her stances—shot her down with their voices.

Shockingly, some of the people at the event defended Taylor with the old people-can-disagree argument. Make no mistake: If someone is anti-LGBT rights, he or she is a part of the problem and is not your friend, not before, not during and not after an event that claims the lives of LGBT people.

You can't have disregard for LGBT lives and then pretend to be saddened by LGBT deaths.

Trump U Is The Donald's Watergate Comments (0)

The Attorneys General of Florida and Texas are both dirty when it comes to the Trump University fraud lawsuit.

Florida's outrageously partisan, incompetent AG Pam Bondi wasn't even slick about it:

Florida's attorney general personally solicited a political contribution from Donald Trump around the same time her office deliberated joining an investigation of alleged fraud at Trump University and its affiliates

The new disclosure from Attorney General Pam Bondi's spokesman to the Associated Press on Monday provides additional details around the unusual circumstances of Trump's $25,000 donation to Bondi.

The money came from a Trump family foundation in apparent violation of rules surrounding political activities by charities. A political group backing Bondi's re-election, called And Justice for All, reported receiving the check Sept. 17, 2013 — four days after Bondi's office publicly announced she was considering joining a New York state probe of Trump University's activities. 

After the check came in, Bondi's office nixed suing Trump, citing insufficient grounds to proceed.

When it comes to Texas, where everything—including corruption—is bigger, then-AG Greg Abbott dropped the suit against Trump U ... and Trump magically supported Abbott for governor. He won:

“The decision not to sue him was political,” John Owens told the Dallas Morning News. “Had [Trump] not been involved in politics to the extent he was at the time, we would have gotten approval. Had he been just some other scam artist, we would have sued him.”

People who feign deep concern that Hillary Clinton is untrustworthy and on the take over ridiculous things like regrettably using a private e-mail server (thus breaking the rules that every other SOS had been breaking, plus one new one) or like GASP accepting pay to speak at financial institutions are just anti-Democratic or anti-Hillary. The shit Trump has gotten up to is straight-up corruption and graft.

It's not a case of Hillary being less corrupt, it's a case of viewing Hillary's ever move through a prism of corruption and accepting Trump's many shady maneuvers as if it were business as usual.
