Clinton Meeting with Lynch Pays Off

The media is late covering this enormously suspicious meeting (CBS News). Lynch insisted “Our conversation was a great deal about his grandchildren. It was primarily social and about our travels” (USA Today).  CNN wrote it off as “incredibly bad judgment “ (CNN).  Then comes this:  Department of Justice officials filed a motion in federal court late Wednesday seeking a 27-month delay in producing correspondence between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s four top aides and officials with the Clinton Foundation and Teneo Holdings, a closely allied public relations firm that Bill Clinton helped launch. If the court permits the delay, the public won’t be able to read the communications until October 2018, about 22 months into her prospective first term as President (Red State).  Is it fair Hillary has such a bad reputation?  In a word, yes (National Review).

Without Hesitation, Democrats Go After Guns

Using a terrorist attack to push for a quick passage of pet gun laws (Reuters).  Hillary, as expected, joined them (CNN).   Her campaign manager showed a remarkable lack of class (Daily Caller).   Some newspapers completely shed their attempt to feign objectivity (San Francisco Chronicle).  At the same time, some are urging the gay community to arm themselves (AOL).  From David French:  The gun-control debate is nothing more than a destructive distraction. Is there a single viable gun-control proposal of the last decade that would keep a committed jihadist from arming himself? Indeed, the gun-control debate keeps us from focusing on the true danger: a terrorist movement that’s learning how to attack a free society. It keeps us from focusing on the terrorists’ capabilities and motivations. It keeps us from asking the very hard questions about how to defeat a movement that’s based not just in a jihadist army that takes and holds territory but also in an ancient religious idea that has never gone away (National Review).
