A Beautiful Story

A year ago, Christian satellite television channel SAT-7 KIDS first filmed and aired an interview with Myriam in a Christmas special from Northern Iraq. When the station then published the clip of her interview on the Internet and social media, millions of viewers around the globe were inspired by her faith and forgiveness.

Despite losing her home, her school and her friends after ISIS drove her family out of their hometown of Qaraqosh, she said that God loves ISIS, she forgives them and prays that God forgives them too.

See Something, Ignore it.

 It is both amusing and saddening that when Bloomberg and MSNBC "reporters" Mark Halperin and John Heilemann learned of the secret meeting between Bill Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch at an Arizona runway, their response was "Well, Bill Clinton is a friendly guy."  Such is the state of American journalism today. Although it was a one day story, the MSM really didn't ask that many questions about it.

More Routine Demo Corruption

The political organization of Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, an influential Democrat with longstanding ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton, gave nearly $500,000 to the election campaign of the wife of an official at the Federal Bureau of Investigation who later helped oversee the investigation into Mrs. Clinton’s email use.

Campaign finance records show Mr. McAuliffe’s political-action committee donated $467,500 to the 2015 state Senate campaign of Dr. Jill McCabe, who is married to Andrew McCabe, now the deputy director of the FBI.

The Virginia Democratic Party, over which Mr. McAuliffe exerts considerable control, donated an additional $207,788 worth of support to Dr. McCabe’s campaign in the form of mailers, according to the records. That adds up to slightly more than $675,000 to her candidacy from entities either directly under Mr. McAuliffe’s control or strongly influenced by him. The figure represents more than a third of all the campaign funds Dr. McCabe raised in the effort.

Change, But Not for the Better

Columnist George Will notes the radical leftists have changed acadmeia but it's not for the better.

That purpose, as Hanna Holborn Gray, a former president of the University of Chicago, once said, is not to make young adults comfortable, it is to make them think. Since 1975, however, universities have embraced the doctrine that speec#mce_temp_url#h that offends people actually harms them, mentally and even physically.

Our Gangster Government

 In the Obama era, we have seen the remorseless merging of the party and the state - in the IRS, in the Justice Department and elsewhere. Whatever one feels about, say, Scandinavia, they at least come to their statism and socialism more or less honestly. Not so the United States.

e IBD/TIPP poll — a collaboration between Investor's Business Daily (IBD) and TechnoMetrica Market Intelligence (TIPP) — has been the most accurate in recent presidential elections, has Trump in a one-point lead against Clinton.

(Polls can be biased and they can be wrong. With its recent track record, the IBD/TIPP deserves some credibility. It might still be wrong, but it's not biased)

Real News Story From Washington Post

The Obama administration Justice Department has investigated three senior officials for mishandling classified information over the past two years but only one faces a felony conviction, possible jail time and a humiliation that will ruin his career: former Joint Chiefs of Staff vice chairman General James E. Cartwright. The FBI’s handling of the case stands in stark contrast to its treatment of Hillary Clinton and retired General David Petraeus — and it reeks of political considerations.
