WikiLeaks Emails: DNC Approved Fake Trump Ads For ‘Hot Women’ Comfortable With ‘Gropes Under The Meeting Table’



The WikiLeaks cache of 19,000 emails from the Democratic National Committee has only been online for a couple of hours, and already it’s revealing some of the party’s dirty tricks.
In an email dated May 18, 2016, Christina Freundlich, Deputy Communications Director at the DNC proposed that the Democrats impersonate the Trump Organization on Craigslist, placing a fake ad for “hot women” aimed at making the Republican candidate look as sexist as possible.

The email, which can be read (at the link), contains the full text of the fake ad. It includes requirements for employees to “not gain weight on the job,” to “evaluate other women’s hotness,” and be comfortable with a range of illegal workplace sexual harassment including allowing the boss to “grope you under the meeting table.”

The fake ad closes by calling on interested applicants to send their cover letters to “jobs@trump.com.”

This is just one of the 19,000-plus Democratic National Committee email files released by WikiLeaks earlier today. ◼ The full archive of emails can be browsed at WikiLeaks’ site.











"What if, when Mrs. Clinton suggested to the president that the United States wage a secret, undeclared war against Libya, the president went along with it as a no-lose proposition? What if he assumed that if her secret war succeeded he’d..."



Judge Andrew Napolitano has put together a compelling case that a massive cover-up took place in the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton’s emails. He writes it cleverly, with each sentence beginning, “What if…?” so as to be able to present hypotheses.

It really deserves to be read in its entirety at The Washington Times. But here is a sample:



"What if Mrs. Clinton’s secret war in Libya was a disaster? What if she succeeded in toppling the Libyan leader, Col. Moammar Gadhafi, only to have him replaced by feuding warlords who control anti-Western terrorist groups that not only failed to produce democracy but instead produced destruction, chaos, terror, torture and death?

What if Mrs. Clinton managed her Libyan disaster using a non-secure email system even though she regularly sent and received state secrets? What if she sent many emails containing state secrets about her Libyan war to her friend Sid Blumenthal? What if Mr. Blumenthal had been turned down for a State Department job by the president himself?

What if Mr. Blumenthal did not have a government security clearance to receive lawfully any state secrets? What if Mrs. Clinton knew that? What if the FBI found that Mr. Blumenthal’s emails had been hacked by intelligence services of foreign governments that are hostile to America?

What if there were terrible secrets that Mrs. Clinton wanted to keep from the public and for that reason she used private servers and nongovernment-issued mobile devices? What if those terrible secrets involved her enabling the unlawful behavior of her husband and his shoddy, unlawful foundation? What if Mrs. Clinton made decisions as secretary of state that were intended to enrich her husband and herself, and she needed to keep emails about those decisions away from the public?

What if the president recognized all this and authorized the FBI to conduct criminal investigations of Mrs. Clinton?

What if, after the ascendancy of Donald Trump in the Republican presidential primaries, the president warmed up to his former rival? ..."

...As part of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Kaine questioned Clinton in 2013 about her response to the 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Kaine's question was in part a compliment of her leadership as then-secretary of state.

"I think the country is at its strongest when we balance military strength with diplomatic strength, economic strength, and strength of our moral example. I cannot think of a person who exemplifies that balance in a public service career as well as you do," Kaine started off....

#DNCleaks: Constructing an anti-'Bernie narrative' - How the Democrat National Committee planned to attack Bernie Sanders























"Wondering if there's a good Bernie narrative for a story, which is that Bernie never ever had his act together, that his campaign was a mess.

Specifically, DWS had to call Bernie directly in order to get the campaign to do things because they'd either ignored or forgotten to something critical.

She had to call Bernie after the data breach to make his staff to respond to our concerns. Even then they didn't get back to us, which is why we had to shut off their access in order to get them to finally let us know exactly how they snooped around HFA's data.

Same was true with the standing committee appointments. They never got back to us with their names (HFA and even O'Malley got there's in six weeks earlier) for the committees. So, again, the chair had to call Bernie personally for his staff to finally get us critical information. So, they gave us an awful list just a few days before we had to make the announcements.

It's not a DNC conspiracy, it's because they never had their act together."

The Left in Fever Pitch After RNC Convention















Ivanka Trump is the Anti-Bill Clinton



Two featured family members paint the convention choice between new and inspiring, old and tired

Ivanka Trump’s most striking quality is her boldness. Last night, at the GOP convention, she stood in front of thousands of Republican delegates — many of them hardcore partisans — and told them she isn’t “categorically Republican or Democrat.” Then, she delivered a speech that didn’t sound categorically Republican at all — there were no familiar talking points or conservative buzz words. She talked about equal pay and child care and she was cheered.

She looks like a Disney princess, speaks with pro-level poise, and is as smart as they come. She’s a successful business woman and a feminist — not a Clintonian, live-like-I-tell-you-to feminist but a life, liberty, pursuit of happiness feminist. The kind of feminist who doesn’t believe that feminism is a collectivist endeavor with rules that trickle down from the top but an individual endeavor, self-realized and self-regulated.

She’s a millennial, but she doesn’t fit the stereotype we’re getting used to. Her speech left people feeling optimistic about the future, and her talent did not go unnoticed:

Time Magazine tweeted an article declaring “Ivanka Trump steals the show.”...

In Ivanka's speech, she spoke about her father's "strong ethical compass." It's hard to imagine anyone uttering these words about Hillary Clinton, whose malfunctioning ethical compass was recently exposed by the FBI. It's even harder to imagine Bill Clinton being the one to utter them, given his many ethical failings. The Clinton's seem to find their way out of everything, but the compass they use has nothing to do with ethics.

Tuesday: Make America Work Again

The Obama years have delivered anemic economic growth, the lowest labor-force participation rate in 38 years, and job-killing regulations and legislation like Obamacare.

Donald Trump is a successful businessman with a solid record of creating jobs and the experience we need to get America's economy up and running … and get Americans working again.

All of Secular Society Under Attack in Turkey



Turkey's President Tayyip Erdogan wants to reinstitute the death penalty to deal with coup participants, and you have to wonder just how many he wants to execute.

Erdogan vastly expanded his purge today, including university deans and professors, as well as more judges and prosecutors in an apparent wholesale assault on secular society. The total number of arrests and firings is now over 50,000....

Uri Friedman in The Atlantic says that Erdogan "could soon become the most powerful Turkish leader since Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, who founded modern Turkey, and arguably the most powerful leader “since the collapse of the Ottoman Empire” in 1923."

Ataturk used that power to modernize and secularize Turkey. Erdogan is using his newfound clout to bring Turkey back to the dark ages where the rule of law is gone, replaced by the rule of one man.
