Clinton E-mail Scandal: 5 More Lies Uncovered By Report

A must-read editorial at Investor's Business Daily on Hillary Clinton's inability to speak the truth:

What does it say about Hillary Clinton that she was so determined to shield herself from public disclosure laws that she was willing to break every rule in the book, and then with a straight face tell the public that she did nothing wrong?
However low the public’s view of Hillary’s trustworthiness is, it isn’t low enough.

NYT campaign columnist: Hillary Clinton 'could conceivably lose'

NYT campaign columnist: Clinton 'could conceivably lose': Thomas Edsall, who writes on demographics and campaign strategy for the New York Times, said it's possible Hillary Clinton could lose the general election in a matchup with Donald Trump and that there are signs it's already happening.
Still, as we near the close of the primary season, Hillary Clinton has somehow succeeded in turning the election into a close contest that she could conceivably lose, Edsall wrote Wednesday. She retains key advantages in areas where Trump is vulnerable, but she has also ceded ground to him on the visceral terrain of nativism and anti-immigrant fervor, of a yearning for a return to the days of America's unquestioned global pre-eminence.
Clinton and Trump are effectively tied in national support, according to the RealClearPolitics average of recent polls. Though Clinton is viewed as untrustworthy by a majority of voters, largely due to her reliance on a private email server while serving as secretary of state, Edsall said it is attacks from both Republicans and her Democratic rival Bernie Sanders that are responsible for her low popularity.

The Shameless New York Times

Bozell & Graham Column: The Shameless New York Times: The New York Times proclaimed the results of their six-week “investigation” on the front page of the Sunday paper. They discovered that Donald Trump is kind of sleazy around women. They want us to know this right now – not six months ago – when it’s clear he’s the Republican nominee against Mrs. Bill Clinton. No Republican is surprised. Their shameless partisanship knows no bounds.

ESPN Panel Incensed That Native Americans Too Dumb to Be Offended by Redskins: The Washington Post released a poll on Thursday, which showed that 90% of Native Americans do not take offense to the word, Redskins. The sports media responded to this poll by apologizing for decades of fear-mongering, race-baiting, and trying to make a national crisis out of something that is not even a crisis in the Indian community. Just kidding. They freaked out.

Would-be pundit George Clooney should worry about his sagging film career

Who is the most overated actor in Hollywood?

Far-left activist and part-time actor George Clooney, who recently hosted a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton, is spending a lot of time weighing in on politics. His most recent comment came at Cannes during the premiere of his latest box-office dud, "Monster Money." Clooney made a point of saying Donald Trump would never be president.

This coming from the "star" of a string of mega-flops, including "Hail Caesar!" "Tomorrowland" "The Monuments Men" "The Ides of March" "The Men Who Stare at Goats" "Burn After Reading" "Leatherheads" and "Syriana"

Let's face it. If it wasn't for his cameo in the Sandra Bullock move "Gravity" and those "Ocean's" remakes from 10 years ago, Clooney would be hard-pressed to hold down a job in Hollywood.

Perhaps he should spend more time picking his film roles than telling us who to vote for in November.

States strike a blow against corporate welfare

States strike a blow against corporate welfare: Lawmakers in state capitols across the country have sown some seeds of progress in reining in corporate welfare. This is an important shift. Corporate welfare fundamentally undermines a free and flourishing economy. It is an insidious use of government power to create special privileges for the well connected few.
Florida had one of the year's biggest successes. Just before adjourning, the state's legislators ended a multi-million dollar corporate welfare program in existence since 1996. They did this by simply denying the $250 million in funding Gov. Rick Scott requested for Enterprise Florida. Scott and other Florida leaders rightfully want to compete for new businesses and win — there's nothing wrong with that. But state legislators recognized that funneling tax dollars to politically favored industries and companies — something many states do — is the wrong way to do it.

Poll: Trump within 3 points of Clinton nationally

Poll: Trump within 3 points of Clinton nationally: Donald Trump is inching closer to Hillary Clinton's lead nationally, according to a new poll.
The 5-point advantage Clinton held least week is now down to just 3 points, according to a national NBC News|SurveyMonkey poll released Tuesday. She leads Trump 48 percent to 45 percent.
Among minority voters, Clinton dominates. The former secretary of state leads Trump by a 75-point margin among black voters, 84-9 percent, and she holds a 37-point advantage among Hispanic voters, 65-28 percent.
She also leads him among female voters by 15 points, while Trump leads among men (11 points) and white voters (15 points).
Trump leads Clinton by 8 points among independent voters, 44-36, the poll found.
In the Democratic primary, Clinton leads Bernie Sanders nationally by 14 points, 54-40, according to the poll. Yet the Vermont senator beats Trump in a hypothetical head-to-head by a wider margin, 53-41.
