Threat to American Democracy

Here’s what William McGurn has to say in the WSJ about the strange reasoning of some anti-Trump elites:

Threat to American Democracy

The people aren’t stupid. The 63 million Americans who voted for Mr. Trump—some as an unappealing but better alternative to Mrs. Clinton, but many with gusto—recognize that what is going on here is a concerted effort to overturn the results of a legitimate presidential election. Is it really unreasonable to ask whether this might be as much of a threat to American democracy as anything Mr. Trump has said or done?

First They Came for Your Guns, Now They Want Your Cutlery

The UK is experiencing a crime wave – murder by knife. So now there’s a call for reasonable knife control measures. And London Mayor Sadiq Khan stands ready to enforce them.

Knife Control

The mayor says, “there is never a reason to carry a knife.”  Not only that, “Anyone who does will be caught, and they will feel the full force of the law.”

Candor Man

Andrew McCabe showed a “lack of candor” when answering questions about the Clinton Foundation investigation. That’s according to the Justice Department inspector general. So Jeff Sessions fired him. Just days before he would have received his pension.

Candor

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has also been known for  a lack of candor. But he was offering the “least untruthful” answer possible. And he kept his pension.

Stormy White House

The WSJ says, President Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, paid $130,000 to porn star Stephanie Clifford, aka Stormy Daniels. Stormy says the payment was part of an agreement to keep quiet about an “encounter” between the two in 2006.

Better Offer for Stormy?

But now she wants out of the deal because she says Trump never signed it.

The Washington Post reported Hillary Clinton’s campaign hid payments through a lawyer too. The campaign’s law firm Perkins Coi paid Fusion GPS to make noise by digging dirt on Trump before the election. Fusion GPS in turn hired the British spy Christopher Steel who produced the “salacious” dossier used to gain FISA court permission to spy on Trump associates.

According to a new book, Russian Roulette, by Michael Isikoff and David Corn, Hillary was following in big footsteps. The Obama campaign had hired the same firm to dig dirt on Mitt Romney.

 

Lions Don’t Care about Opinions of Sheep

You can see something and say something, but Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel isn’t listening.

But he is talking.

He will tell you he provides “amazing leadership.”  And that “lions don’t care about the opinions of sheep.”
