There will be no epiphany on the road to Damascus

It is without meaning, other than to waste lives and wreck the place.

Third Way Dems are colonists from the Rockefeller wing of the GOP

They arrived with Reagan and enough money to take over the Democratic Party for two decades. Like the Republicans, they remain essentially dynastic and protective of property rights - according to the iron law of inheritance, the Presidency now belongs to Hillary.

They know that some of us can now see them for what they are, but remain confident in their mission of planetary conquest.

Clinton's lawyers didn't read the 30K emails they deleted. They just hit a button.

No Congressional committee or court of justice will be able to call witnesses who actually screened the more than 30,000 emails Clinton's lawyers characterize as "private." That's because the screeners don't exist; nobody reviewed the former Secretary of State's email before approximately half were deleted a few months ago.

As reported in yesterday's TIME Magazine, when Hillary Clinton's lawyers separated the Clintonemail.com account for public matter material, no human being actually read her emails before deleting what was deemed "private" messages. It was all done automatically on the basis of a key-word search: http://time.com/3741847/the-clinton-way/

She commissioned a review of the 62,320 messages in her account only after the department–spurred by the congressional investigation–asked her to do so. And this review did not involve opening and reading each email; instead, Clinton’s lawyers created a list of names and keywords related to her work and searched for those. Slightly more than half the total cache–31,830 emails–did not contain any of the search terms, according to Clinton’s staff, so they were deemed to be “private, personal records.”


When Mrs. Clinton addressed the assembled press corps earlier in the week, her explanation of the criteria for determining private material was rather different. These were merely “private personal emails,” Clinton claimed, as Time quoted her, the deleted

“emails (were) about planning Chelsea’s wedding or my mother’s funeral arrangements, condolence notes to friends as well as yoga routines, family vacations, the other things you typically find in inboxes.”

After she finished taking questions, Clinton’s staff disclosed that no one actually read through those 30,000-odd documents before she “chose not to keep” them.

GOPer invites Hillary Clinton to sign Iran letter

Source: CNN.com

Washington (CNN)Sen. Tom Cotton said Tuesday he'd "welcome" presidential candidates to join the 47 Senate Republicans who signed a controversial letter to Iran warning the country's leaders that a lasting nuclear deal would have to be approved by Congress.

And Cotton said he would welcome "even Hillary Clinton," the presumptive Democratic presidential frontrunner, to join the effort.

"I suspect she might have reservations about this ill-fated nuclear deal with Iran as well," Cotton said on CNN's New Day.

Several potential GOP presidential candidates have already signed onto the letter. Sens. Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul and Lindsey Graham are among the 46 Republicans who signed onto Cotton's letter "to the Leaders of the Islamic Republic of Iran." President Barack Obama slammed the letter on Monday, accusing the GOP of making "common cause with the hard-liners in Iran" by attempting to undercut ongoing negotiations that face a first deadline for a framework agreement at the end of the month.

So far, she has said nothing about the letter, despite being invited to sign it. As former Secretary of State, she's almost duty-bound to stand up with the President. If she doesn't speak out forcefully against the 47, she's complicit with the bipartisan war party. Again.

If she does take the opportunity during her 1:30pm statement today -- and is very clear in her statement that she supports the President's diplomatic efforts, and condemns this effort to hijack and spoil the talks with Iran -- my estimation of her can only rise, and I will thank her.
