Yes, Trump lies and flip flops and says what he feels he needs to in the moment. But if honesty is your defining issue this year, it really doesn’t matter which way you go.
It’s good that the Left has taken over education, with the search for “the best” answer as opposed to “the right” answer and other modern techniques that focus less on information and more on learning how to learn, or whatever. Fox News’ Jesse Watters interviews some of the fallout.
President Obama is trying to ensure that the federal government is steering things. That should definitely fix the problem.
Below are some moving scenes from President Obama’s visit to Hiroshima Friday.
He didn’t apologize, although his very presence suggested something of a mea culpa. But unfortunately, his visit inadvertently revealed the passivity of his approach to nuclear weapons.
Obama called for the world to look within itself and achieve some kind of advanced thinking that will cause it to reject nuclear weapons. He asked for, “A future in which Hiroshima and Nagasaki are known not for the bomb of atomic warfare but as the start of our own moral awakening.”
Fat chance. History doesn’t teach that waiting for humans to ascend to some moral plane that the Obamas of the world think they inhabit is a good way to grapple with danger. Obama has bet our future on the notion that the Iranians will cast aside their religious fanaticism and, with it, the nuclear weapons that he has permitted them to have. That won’t happen. Like George W. Bush before him, Obama thinks others want the same things we want. They don’t.
By failing to take forceful action against Iran – yes, even through war as a last resort – to prevent the Mullahbomb, Obama has placed future generations of Americans in mortal danger. These fanatics will build their weapons, and their missiles, and one day either use them or give them to someone else who will. Feel-good moments in Hiroshima notwithstanding.

Donald Trump said he would “love to debate” Bernie Sander in order to raise $10 million to $15 million, “maybe for women’s health issues or something.”
What is this, like one of those celebrity tennis tournaments. And what does Trump mean by “women’s health issues?” Talk about pandering.
The Obama administration’s own State Department inspector general has exposed a variety of lies told by Hillary Clinton in defense of her email use.
Contrary to what she has been saying, Clinton did not have permission to use her own email account. Agency officials “did not — and would not — approve her exclusive reliance on a personal email account to conduct Department business, because of the restrictions … and the security risks in doing so,” the report states.
As the Washington Times notes, “Inspector General Steve Linick, appointed by President Obama, said he couldn’t find any evidence that Mrs. Clinton received approval for her odd email arrangement, and when lower-level staffers pressed the issue, saying she was skirting open-records laws, they were ordered ‘never to speak of the secretary’s personal email system again.'”
Clinton said she would cooperate with any investigation, but refused to cooperate with a probe by her own State Department.
She said what she did wasn’t against the rules, but “Secretary Clinton should have preserved any federal records she created and received on her personal account by printing and filing those records,” according to the report.
She said she turned over all her work-related emails, but “the inspector general highlighted gaps in Clinton’s emails that suggested some official communications did not make it into the batch of 55,000 pages of records Clinton gave the agency,” notes the Washington Examiner.
She said her server was safe from hackers, but as the Washington Times notes, there were several hacking attempts, and it’s not clear if they were successful. Clinton responding to possible hacks, revealed the true reason for her separate account, which was, as everyone knows, to prevent anyone from seeing what she was writing.
From the Times:
In one instance in 2011, Mrs. Clinton’s tech guru thought the server was being hacked and shut it down for a few minutes. Months later, Mrs. Clinton feared yet another hack attack was underway — yet never reported the incident to the department, in another breach of department rules.
In the 2010 exchange, top personal aide Huma Abedin suggested that it was time to look into getting an official state.gov email address because Mrs. Clinton’s messages from her clintonemail.com account were landing in staffers’ spam folders.
Alternatively, Ms. Abedin said, Mrs. Clinton could release her secret address to the department so she could be designated as a verified account, keeping her messages out of spam folders.
Mrs. Clinton refused, saying she didn’t “want any risk of the personal being accessible.”
Mrs. Clinton has lied repeatedly about a very important matter. I am not sure how the Obama administration is going to justify not indicting her if the FBI recommends it.
Maybe that’s why Vice President Biden appeared last week in Ohio to announce an important new worker overtime rule Obama put out, instead of Obama doing it himself. They want to keep Biden viable in case he has to replace Hillary
