Hillary Camp Wants Help from Debate Moderators

Calling it “unfair” that Hillary should have to “make sure” Trump’s “lies are corrected” (Washington Times).  More members of Camp Hillary are making demands (Washington Examiner).  One story claims she’s getting help from a podium designed to make her look taller (NY Daily News).  The format (NBC News).  A look at the moderator’s challenge (USA Today).  Voters are still having trouble trusting either candidate (Gallup).  From ABC News:  The race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump has narrowed to essentially a dead heat nationally in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll, raising the stakes dramatically for the first presidential debate Monday night (ABC News).

Florida Sheriff’s Office Refuses to Escort NFL’s Dolphins Until They Stand for Anthem

From the story:  “I didn’t want to believe that it was really happening,” he said. “But when he stepped on the flag – I just thought about all these men and women who fought for that flag that he just walked on – all these men and women who’ve come home with that flag draped over their coffin.” So Alex grabbed his phone and snapped a photo – a photo that would eventually go viral on Facebook. Then, the teenager rose from his seat, picked up the flag and took the defiled banner to the principal’s office. “We are extremely proud of him,” Alex’s mother told me. “He did the right thing.” However, doing the right thing could land the brave, young patriot in hot water.

Mr. Francis told me Alex “broke the law” and should be punished. “I believe that child does need to be punished in some way – absolutely,” the teacher told me. “I can’t take a picture of them and in turn they cannot do the same of me.”

Charlotte Erupts Again, Hillary Fuels the Fire

The governor declared a state of emergency.  More officers were attacked.  At least one person was shot (Fox News).  Multiple civilians were shot according to this story, not by police (RCP). ABC News called the rioters “who threw bottles at police, blocked an interstate, threw objects at passing cars, jumped on vehicles, looted businesses, vandalized a Hyatt hotel and attacked its employees” mere “demonstrators” (ABC News).  Hillary tweeted anger at the police (Gateway Pundit).  And yet, a story notes “A Charlotte, North Carolina news station says it has confirmed with sources that there is dash camera video that shows Keith Scott getting out of a car and coming at police officers with a gun in his hand” (KWCH).  From another: “Officers approached Scott and gave him multiple warnings to drop the weapon, Putney said. Scott then attempted to get out of the vehicle with the gun in his hand, which is when he was shot by Officer Brentley Vinson, who is black and has been placed on administrative leave, as is standard procedure in such cases. Vinson has been with the department for two years” (CBS News).  More on the Charlotte shooting (CNN).  Meanwhile, a more detailed look at the shooting of Terence Crutcher (ABC News).  Trump had a more sensitive answer to the difficult Tulsa shooting (RCP).

CNN Host: Clinton Health Coverage Sexist

From the regularly silly Christiane Amanpour (Fox News).  Where was she as Cosmopolitan harassed Ivanka Trump over her father’s generous maternity leave plans? (CNN).  From Amy Otto:  Cosmopolitan is rabidly pro-abortion, which might be why they have zero staff who understand what maternity leave is. The interviewer’s main objection to Trump’s maternity leave proposal is that it focuses on women, who give birth (The Federalist).

Hillary Backs NCAA’s Attack on North Carolina

She tweeted “The @NCAA is right to pull tournament games from North Carolina because of the anti-LGBT HB2 law. Discrimination has no place in America. –H” (The Pulse).  From David French:  Is the trend now that major sporting events can only occur in progressive-approved locations? Will we now be subject to a parade of progressive-approved (and only progressive-approved) player demonstrations? And spare me any argument that our sporting culture is opening itself up to free expression. I’m glad neither the NFL nor the San Francisco 49ers are punishing Colin Kaepernick, but just ask Curt Schilling how much the progressive sports elite values dissent from the social-justice orthodoxy. I don’t mind if individual players or owners express themselves, so long as it is clearly understood that all viewpoints are welcome. I mind, however, when the sporting elite decides to turn professional and college athletics into a sweatier version of a progressive college campus, speech codes and all. I mind when social-justice warriors try to wield the awesome economic power of sports — built via the pocketbooks of all Americans — to punish conservatives, especially Christian conservatives (National Review).
