Bernie Could and Should Pounce on the New OIG Report on Hillary’s Deceitfulness but He Hasn’t and He Wont

by Scott Creighton (just a rant)

So what does that tell you?

At a juncture in the campaign when Hillary Clinton is on the ropes, Bernie Sanders has elected to feign his own KO off a weak, limp, flailing swat of a ghost punch from perpetual liar, Hillary Clinton.

As far as I can tell having suffered through a couple of his now completely standard, rote campaign speeches from yesterday in California, Bernie has remained mum on the subject of the Office of Inspector General of the Department of State’s report on email records management and cybersecurity requirements .

Yesterday I wrote about the significance of the report in terms of just how deceitful Hillary’s tenure in the State Department really was and just how selfish she is in the face of the very real threat her illegal use of that private email server was.

In terms of this report exposing her character or lack thereof, it couldn’t be more scathing. She is absolutely not qualified for office and as one writer put it, this report would certainly keep her from being appointed to any position in any administration because she couldn’t get past a confirmation hearing. And yet here we are, seriously considering her as the presumptive nominee of the hacked and rigged Democrat Party primary.

The fact that Bernie is performing some amazing feats of mental gymnastics in order to avoid even mentioning the report is depressing too say the least. The fact that he hasn’t seized on it as his primary campaign tool at this most critical moment in the contest is a bit… shall we say… suspicious?

Unfortunately, it’s not the first time Bernie has been less than enthusiastic about exposing the stolen Democratic Party primary recently.

US Troops Seen Wearing Patch of Kurdish YPG Death Squads in Syria (that’s SYRIA… not “Rojava”)

by Scott Creighton (H/T Penny)

Kurds generally consider Rojava to be one of the four parts of a greater Kurdistan, which also includes parts of eastern and southeastern Turkey (Northern Kurdistan), northern Iraq (Southern Kurdistan), and northwestern Iran (Eastern Kurdistan).[20]

Just a quick note:

It’s being reported that some of our Special Operations troops in Syria who are assisting the Kurds in their effort to bust off a piece of the country for their own, are now wearing arm patches of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), a group that Amnesty International accused of committing ethnic cleansing campaigns throughout northern Syria.

Here is a pic of the YPG flag.

Rudaw, Kurdish publication, reports the news this way:

At least one of the US special forces soldiers advising the Kurdish-led Syrian alliance fighting the Islamic State (ISIS) was photographed wearing the insignia of the Kurdish Protection Units (YPG), which the Pentagon says is common practice under such circumstances. 

“Special operations forces, when they operate in certain areas, do what they can to, if you will, blend in with the community to enhance their own protection, their own security,” explained Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook on Thursday.” Rudaw

What Rudaw wont tell you is this: the YPG are vicious death squads who are actively ethnically cleansing northern Syria making ready their new nation, built by Barack Obama, Greater Kurdistan.

And now apparently we are making our troops wear YPG patches on their arms. Sometimes I’m glad my father didn’t live to see this shit.

Hillary Clinton, Drowning in Email

New York Times editorial board

…Across the years of the Clintons’ ascendancy, the public has seen that Mrs. Clinton can be fiercely protective of her role and prerogatives — at times grudging in admitting error and, during Bill Clinton’s presidency, blaming a “vast right-wing conspiracy” for allegations against her and her husband that began early in his tenure and continued on through the impeachment scandal. (The right wing was definitely on his case, but hardly alone in its doubts about Mr. Clinton’s personal conduct.)

This defensive posture seems at play in the email controversy, as well as her refusal, for that matter, to release the lucrative speeches she made to Wall Street audiences. The reflex she is revealing again now — to hunker down when challenged — is likely to make her seem less personable to many voters, and it will surely inflame critics’ charges of an underlying arrogance

Judge Seals All Video Depositions In Clinton Email Case

(According to the story, evidence of Hillary Clinton’s corruption could be “used for political purposes”)

A U.S. judge on Thursday ordered that all videotaped depositions in a lawsuit over Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton’s private email server remain sealed, The Hill newspaper reported.

In a brief order on Thursday evening, Judge Emmet Sullivan granted the request of lawyers for Clinton’s ex-chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, who had worried that video clips of her interview could be used for political purposes, according to The Hill.
