Greg Corombos of Radio America and Ian Tuttle of National Review preview the vice presidential debate and point out these candidates are better than the presidential nominees and that we’ll actually see one conservative on stage this fall.  They also groan that conservatives are largely depending on Julian Assange to defeat Hillary Clinton.  And they discuss the latest invasion of political correctness into the U.S. military.

    The following information is from wikipedia so take it with a grain of salt. But Harvey Milk’s treatment of Oliver Sipple makes his character suspect. Oliver Sipple was a Marine who fought in Vietnam who was gay.

    Though he was known to be homosexual among members of the gay community, and had even participated in Gay Pride events, Sipple’s sexual orientation was a secret from his family. He asked the press to keep such personal information off the record, making it clear that neither his mother nor his employer knew he was gay. The national spotlight was on him immediately, andHarvey Milk responded. While discussing whether the truth about Sipple’s sexuality should be disclosed, Milk told a friend: “It’s too good an opportunity. For once we can show that gays do heroic things, not just all that caca about molesting children and hanging out in bathrooms.”[10] Milk reportedly outed Sipple as a “gay hero” to San Francisco Chronicle‘s columnist Herb Caen in hopes to “break the stereotype of homosexuals” of being “timid, weak and unheroic figures”.[3][4][6]

    Several days later Caen wrote of Sipple as a gay man and a friend of Milk speculating Ford offered praise “quietly” because of Sipple’s sexual orientation. Sipple was besieged by reporters, as was his family. His mother refused to speak to him.

    I heard on radio that Assange was threatened and that’s why he didn’t do the docu-dump, but it is forthcoming next week? There is a lot of serious material coming out from other than Assange against Clintons – the more I hear, the more I shudder, like Bill’s LLC………that there was money from Russia? All kinds of craziness – I hope the truth comes out before election.
