…that even Bill Clinton has been reduced to spewing argle-bargle like “best darn change-maker”.
“The theme tonight, with this group that’s going to get up and speak is compassion for criminals. Every one of these individuals, nearly every one of these individuals whose mother will speak was engaged in questionable lifestyle choices. Mike Brown was a criminal who tried to disarm a law enforcement officer. Eric Garner resisted arrest, Freddie Gray resisted arrest.”
“We know what the true Hillary Clinton is, not the one all made up in a blue suit on asking for black people to vote and saying she has hot sauce in her pocketbook.”
But the outraged crowd shouts down the chants. This video is being censored by the German media, but we Americans have Breitbart.
Actual Old York Times headline: “Attack on Church in France Kills Priest, and ISIS is Blamed”
These “attacks” should be in jail. And why is poor, innocent ISIS being blamed anyway?
Naturally, the story contains no mention of the fact that, to use the passive voice again, an Islamic sermon was preached at the church altar. Pity the Times chose not to highlight this. After all, the church became an “interfaith prayer room!”
UPDATE: They fixed the headline somewhat, but they’re still censoring the facts.
Terrified Democrats are losing their cool.
Paul Mirengoff of PowerLine has a list of DNC booees, and wonders who else will end up on that list:
I expect [delegates] to be raucous tonight, especially during the roll call vote, which Sanders says he’s looking forward to. I expect them to be raucous on Wednesday night, especially when Tim Kaine, their new bete noire, speaks.
Will they still be raucous on Thursday night when it’s Hillary’s turn? That’s a question that should be keeping the nominee up at night.
“Francisca,” one of the illegal aliens who disgraced the convention stage, has been ordered deported by a court of law. She is simply ignoring the order and flaunting her lawlessness on national TV.
I hope President Trump starts enforcing our immigration laws by arresting and deporting her, and prosecuting DNC organizers for aiding and abetting an illegal-alien scofflaw.

PolitiFact, which desperately tries to bury this fact in spin:
Based on our searches of C-SPAN closed-captioning text, Congressional Quarterly transcripts and other video archiving services, we couldn’t find any speaker who mentioned “ISIS,” “Islamic” “terror,” “terrorist,” or “terrorism” during the first day of the convention.
For decades, Republicans had a simple line of attack against Democrats: They’re too liberal. That line of attack finally failed against Bill Clinton in 1992 because his rhetoric and positions differentiated him from liberal Democrats.
Similarly, Democrats have a standard line of attack against Republicans: They’re stooges for rich people. That line worked particularly well against Mitt Romney, allowing the unpopular Barack Obama to become the only president re-elected by a smaller margin of victory than in his first term.
Trump doesn’t fit the uncaring-rich-guy stereotype. Yes, he’s rich. And arguably uncaring. But he’s built his campaign on representing the people against the elites. Warren’s criticism will thus bounce off Trump, the way critiques of Bill Clinton as liberal bounced off Slick Willie.
Instead, Warren comes off as the epitome of the politically-correct liberals who are persecuting working-class people because they hold the “wrong” views on illegal immigration, guns, gays, air conditioning, Syrian refugees, BLM, bathrooms, and whatever other causes hipsters use to make themselves feel superior.
That’ll play well in Massachusetts, with Warren-like eggheads, and in the 2020 Democrat primaries. But it won’t win Hillary many new votes this year.
In fact all of Warren’s polemics against Washington will hurt Hillary, the icon of Washington insiderism, and help Trump, the definition of a Washington outsider.
“Stupid wall?” Thank you, Pocahontas!
