Front Page Mag: “Not even other Democrats like her.

Hillary Clinton has ruthlessly clawed her way to power. She has supporters, but no friends. After decades of victimizing women on behalf of a career sexual predator, she brought that predator up on stage to tell the world how much she loves families and children.

The best thing that can be said about the convention is that, like the rest of the Clinton campaign, it’s unremarkable. It’s bland and it’s boring. It’s full of the expected politicians and celebrities saying all the expected things about Hillary. But that’s what alibis look like. And that’s what this convention is. An alibi.

The Clintons are criminals who pretend to be activists. They’re greedy thieves who claim to want to make things better. They maintain a thin facade of normalcy as an alibi. It fooled some people a few decades ago. But it’s fooling fewer and fewer people. Even fewer and fewer Democrats.”

Opinion: I have to admit that Bill Clinton’s speech was more than I could take. I kept switching channels with each righteous platitude, all the while mumbling this cannot be happening again.

So in an effort to be accurate I tried to read the text this morning, but once again I couldn’t get very far.

“In the spring of 1971, I met a girl. The first time I saw her, we were, appropriately enough, in a class on political and civil rights. She had thick blond hair, big glasses. Wore no makeup. And she exuded this strength of self-possession I found magnetic.

After the class, I followed her out, intending to introduce myself. I got close enough to touch her back, but I couldn’t do it. Somehow, I knew this would not be just another tap on the shoulder, that I might be starting something I couldn’t stop.”

Had enough? Now you know why I switched channels.

YNet News: “French media reported that one hostage had been killed after two men armed with blades took several people hostage in a church in France’s northern Normandy region on Tuesday.

The victim who was killed was a priest according to a source in the police who spoke to Reuters. The source said that the attackers yelled “for ISIS” as they slit the priest’s throat.

Police and elite forces surrounded the church in a suburb of Rouen, the capital of the Normandy region and eventually managed to kill the two assaliants.”

Opinion: Details to follow as they come in …

  • Priest, Father Jacques Hamel, 86, was ‘beheaded’ by two ISIS knifemen shouting ‘Daesh’ 
  • Terrorists took nuns and worshippers hostage at French church
  • Police shoot both attackers dead then search for bombs
  • ISIS claims responsibility
  • One attacker lived locally and had electronic tag having been jailed in France for trying to travel to Syria in 2015
  • The church was one of a number of Catholic churches on a terrorist ‘hit list’ found on a suspected ISIS extremist last April
