Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America applaud Mark Hemingway of “The Weekly Standard” for shredding the ridiculous notion that the Obama administration has been scandal-free. They also unload on the FBI for doing nothing after the man who later became the Ft. Lauderdale airport terrorist came to them and said his mind was being controlled by U.S. intelligence agencies. And they highlight the FBI revelation that the Democratic National Committee refused to allow agents to inspect their servers after they suspected they had been hacked.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America react to a Washington Post report suggesting the 2018 Senate map gives the Republicans a chance to hold a 60-seat majority. They also shudder as German authorities confirm they’re looking for a Tunisian asylum seeker as the one responsible for the Berlin terrorist attack. And they scratch their heads over the reasons some Democrats are giving for opposing Keith Ellison as the next DNC chairman, instead of the really glaring reasons he would be a terrible choice.

Just about every Sunday morning talk show discussed fake news, but not a single example was cited (correct me if I missed some). I do wish to think that the DNC and Hillary camp are punking the media. But we all know the media is just doing the DNC’s PR dirty work, spewing negative propaganda […]

An acquaintance of my family is running for office this year. I only knew him as a kid, so can’t verify much other than that he has long operated a respectable business and has taken good care of his family. But I heard he’s running as a conservative Democrat and so looked up his platform […]

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are pleased to see millennials far less excited about Hillary Clinton than they were about Barack Obama. They also shudder as many states reveal the massive Obamacare premium hikes in store for the coming year. They react to a DNC bus pouring human waste into a Georgia storm sewer. And they mark six years of the Three Martini Lunch with a look back at two of this year’s funniest moments.

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. More DNC Purges Following Email Hack

 

Via the WSJ:

WASHINGTON—Three more top Democratic National Committee officials plan to leave the organization, including the chief executive and the finance head, as fallout from an email-hacking scandal further shook the party’s leadership ranks. CEO Amy Dacey, communications director Luis Miranda and Chief Financial Officer Brad Marshall will be leaving the DNC, the committee said Tuesday. Their departures follow on the heels of Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who resigned last month after hacked emails that appeared to show staffers at the DNC conspiring against Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in the late days of his Democratic primary race against Hillary Clinton.

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. WikiLeaks Scandal Sends More DNC Leaders to the Exits

 

Donna BrazileThe WikiLeaks email scandal that embroiled the Democrats just before their convention caused DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz to step down. Now it appears that hers was only the first of several heads to roll. The DNC’s CEO Amy Dacey resigned in disgrace earlier today, along with two lieutenants. From Politico:

Also out are Communications Director Luis Miranda and Chief Financial Officer Brad Marshall. Marshall has been heavily criticized after a mass hack of DNC emails revealed he had suggested questioning Sen. Bernie Sanders’ religion during his primary contest with Hillary Clinton.

Last night was the third night of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. We could tell you about the minor figures who strode the dais: Sigourney Weaver, Chris Murphy, Leon Panetta, Joe Biden, Governor Moonbeam, the latter proudly declared “Hillary Clinton does stuff!” (And yes, we just called Joe Biden a minor figure. Sorry, Joe. The truth hurts.) But there were three important speeches Wednesday night: Michael Bloomberg, Tim Kaine, and President Obama.

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. DNC panel actually doesn’t know whether men can have abortions?

 

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

The Atlantic and Refinery29 hosted a panel discussion entitled “Young Women Rising: America’s Next Top Voter?” during the Democratic National Convention, Tuesday evening. Following a 30-minute conversation on “intersectionality” and millennial feminism, a reporter asked the panel for its thoughts on reproductive rights and women’s health issues for men who ascribe to a female gender identity. Ayanna Pressley, a Boston city councilor at-large, said the issue of men who identify as women getting abortions is all about “elevated consciousness.”

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. #SomeMothersMatter

 

I have a fairly high tolerance when it comes to grieving parents: It may be a cliché, but it’s likely true that none of us can understand the anguish and sorrow of losing one’s child without having gone through it. However, I have a very low tolerance for those who enable parents to present thugs and thieves as victims and martyrs. Whatever one’s other feelings about police shootings and #BlackLivesMatter, justice and decency should have demanded that Lezley McSpadden — the mother of Michael Brown, pictured below in the blue dress — not be featured on a stage of victims at the DNC. But as you can see, she was.

Monday was the first day of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. Not unlike the Republican convention, which had a theme each night, the Democrats had a theme too. As near as we can figure, last night’s theme was “Angry Yelling.”

What? What are talking about? Bernie won. Bernie won decisively! Bernie won overwhelmingly! Well, not exactly.

For all the mudslinging in the GOP primary, the Democrats’ problems are so much worse. Think about it: the leading Democrat candidates both qualify for Social Security, both have been in politics forever, and have woeful empty resumes. Regardless of who wins the nomination, the Vice President selections are as equally lacking. More
