[FOXNEWS] The State Department revealed Monday that it has identified "multiple security incidents" involving current or former employees' handling of Crooked Hillary Clinton's ...former first lady, former secretary of state, former presidential candidate, Conqueror of Benghazi, Heroine of Tuzla, formerly described by her supporters as the smartest woman in the world, usually described by the rest of us as The Thing That Wouldn't Go Away... emails, and that 23 "violations" and seven "infractions" have been issued as part of the department's ongoing investigation.
The information came in a letter to Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley, who is responsible for overseeing the security review.
"To this point, the Department has assessed culpability to 15 individuals, some of whom were culpable in multiple security incidents," Mary Elizabeth Taylor, the State Department's Assistant Secretary in the Bureau of Legislative Affairs, wrote to Grassley. "DS has issued 23 violations and 7 infractions incidents. ... This number will likely change as the review progresses."
A plume, boredom, foredoom, Profumo:
"No 'who, what, where, when, and to whom!'
Oh, I'd much rather die
Than inquire as to 'why'
Or do something so dire
As pursue smoke to fire
Or consume low amusement. Ewww, sumo!
Call me kooky, Yuki, but I like kabuki."
"Except he's a Tory."
"Ahem. Well. Woohoo, what a story!"
Enter the Donald, stomping (it was kind of a weird dream).

The Broadway production of a play about Bill and Hillary Clinton talking frankly about her 2008 presidential campaign will close a month ahead of schedule, due to low ticket sales.
Starring Laurie Metcalf and John Lithgow, Hillary and Clinton was set to close on July 21 but will instead close June 23. It cost $4.2 million to produce.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, "Hillary and Clinton is not based on the real Clintons, but instead characters with the same name in an alternate universe," and its early closing is linked to "underwhelming ticket sales." Set in a New Hampshire hotel room during that state's 2008 Democratic primary, it touches on marriage and sexism in politics.
A New York Times review mournfully noted that Lucas Hnath's 90-minute play was "asking us to see the world through the eyes of a woman who ostensibly has all the right stuff to be president and yet is never allowed to win."
As a current a current Amazon employee, I can assure you that many Amazon Fulfillment center employees show no signs of starvation! If there was there would be no need for an Amazon weight loss challenge,
But he's right Skidmark. You don't have to know ANYTHING about her, but you see her face...
Personally I think something people unconsciously recognize within her eyes that turn's the switch on in the head. Doesn't make it right, or even rational. That's why we're civilized, we control our impulses.

Somehow all this discussion of Trump's comments seem to have forgotten Khan's unprovoked attacks on Trump before and during his visit and the Trump balloon.
It seems Khan can dish out idiotic criticism but cannot take it.
[REALCLEARPOLITICS] I’m not going to be buying Ace Newshound Jim Acosta ...CNN's showboating White House correspondent... ’s new book. I’ve already been snookered by a slick carnival barker once, back when I was a young man at the Feast of San Gennaro. No need to pay money twice for the same old sleight of hand.
The grifter’s trick is to show you one thing while making you think you’re seeing another. Acosta is pitching a book called "The Enemy of the People" and he wants you to think he is "the people." He isn’t. Is he "The Enemy of the People"? That’s giving him too much credit, but he is the enemy of the truth.
I’ve already written about Acosta numerous times, and included in my book "The Media Matrix" an essay titled "Jim Acosta and the Hubris of Celebrity Journalism" that first appeared at RealClearPolitics. The premise is simple ‐ that news hounds like Acosta have an entitlement mentality. In other words, they have made the mistake of reading their own positive press and thinking they are indispensable. Actually they are just insufferable.
That was on full display in the excerpt CNN published from Acosta’s book last week. What you get is one part self-righteousness, one part self-serving quotes from anonymous sources, one part presumption of Trump’s guilt, and one part hysteria.
[Daily Mail, Where America Gets Its News] Democrats are plotting a new strategy to get witnesses before Congress in their investigation of President Donald Trump ...Perhaps no man has ever had as much fun being president of the US...
They will call Trump associates who have never worked in the White House, which would circumvent the president's claim of executive privilege
The new witness list could include Corey Lewandowski, Chris Christie, Paul Manafort, and Rick Gates
All four played prominent roles in both the 2016 Trump campaign and appeared in special counsel Robert Mueller's report
But the White House is arguing executive privilege applies to all Trump advisers and not just those aides who worked in the administration
[DAILYWIRE] A new poll from inside socialist Rep. Alexandria Boom Boom Ocasio-Cortez Dem represntative from da Bronx in Noo Yawk and leader of the Mean Girl Caucus in Congress. One of the Great Minds of the 21st Century, she is known as much for her innaleck as for her dance moves. She is all in favor of socialism, even though she's fuzzy on the details... 's (D-NY) 14th congressional district has found that among registered voters, the far-left congresswoman is deeply unpopular.
The door-to-door poll from Stop The AOC PAC yielded the following key results:
They don’t like her. She has a more than 2:1 ratio of unfavorable (50.88%) to favorable (21.37%) in public opinion.
They don’t trust her. Only 10.75% thought she had their best interests in mind in quashing the Amazon deal – 32.60% said she didn’t.
They don’t want her. 33.44% are ready to vote against her, and only 13.30% would vote for her.
[DAILYWIRE] In a new man-on-the-street video, Campus Reform's Cabot Phillips asks a few pro-Joe Foreign Policy Whiz Kid Biden ...The former Senator-for-Life from Delaware, an example of the kind of top-notch Washington intellect to be found in the World's Greatest Deliberative Body... college students to guess which presidential candidate ‐ Donald Trump ...Oh, noze!... or Biden ‐ was the source of some racially charged quotes, all of which were infamously stated by Biden. Phillips finds that even though some of the lines have been widely reported, the students all guess Trump for each quote. When they are informed that in fact Biden said all of the "pretty racist" comments, the students express genuine surprise and say the revelation will likely impact their support for the former vice president.
Well, age is the least of our problems. Younger politicians? I give you AOC and mayor Butt-gig. Established politicians? Looking at you, Amy K. and Kamala-ala-ding-dong. Old? that speaks for itself.

Fifteenth Amendment: Section 1. The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.
Section 2. The Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.
The 15th A doesn't say anything about not regulating boneheads contaminating the voting process. The Voting Rights Act of 1965 probably does speak to testing the voters for qualifying knowledge to vote. When does this come up for renewal again?
