White House Secret Server

150818-secret-server

Hillary may have had over 300 classified documents on her secret server in a bathroom closet in Denver. She turned a server over to the FBI that had been wiped clean. Bob Woodward compared her email issues to Richard Nixon’s tapes. His tapes only contained an 18 minute  gap.

Update:

Former CIA director John Deutch also stored classified information on his home brew hard drive.

He was pardoned in the final hours of the last Clinton administration. Marc Thiessen has details here.

Trump/Sanders Dream Ticket

150817-dream-ticketA 72 year old Vermont socialist from Brooklyn draws huge crowds for speeches. The Donald insults Megyn and Mexicans and still leads a strong Republican field in the polls.

Glenn Reynolds, in USA TODAY says the voters are fed up with the ruling class in both parties:

The rise — and, for that matter, the fall, if fall it is — of Trump is an indictment of the GOP establishment and, for that matter, of the American political establishment in general.

On many issues, ranging from immigration reform, which many critics view as tantamount to open borders, to bailouts for bankers, the Republican and Democratic establishments agree, while a large number (quite possibly a majority) of Americans across the political spectrum feel otherwise.

Dream Ticket

Is Trump/Sanders a third party dream ticket for frustrated voters?

They both say the government’s unemployment numbers are a “crock“. The official 5.3% rate doesn’t take into account the 90 million who have given up looking for work. Sanders says the real unemployment number is north of 10%. Trump places it at 20%. Nick Gillespie, in a Daily Beast piece titled “The Pissed Off Primary”, notes they both hate Immigration and China, but in the end they’re more demagogues than candidates.

EPA Spill

EPA chief Gina McCarthy says the Animas River is cleaning itself. The EPA spilled 3 million gallons of toxic waste into the river when one of its contractors pulled the plug to the abandoned Gold King mine. The agency took 24 to alert officials of the spill.

Hillary’s Secret

150812-hillary-secret

Hillary is turning her home brew email server over to the FBI. They say it contained top secret emails. The documents weren’t encrypted. If the FBI really wanted to know what was on Hillary’s server all they had to do was ask the Chinese.

 

Megyn vs The Donald

15081-megyn-vs-The-Donald

Donald Trump bitched about Megyn Kelly’s debate questions by way of saying she “had blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever”.

That comment took me back to 1979 BP (Before Political-correctness) when Dan Akroyd debated Jane Curtin on SNL.
