Two knife-wielding attackers who had pledged allegiance to ISIS, shouting “Allahu Akbar,” slit the throat of an 84-year-old priest and critically wounded at least one other person during a Tuesday morning terror attack on a Catholic church near the Normandy city of Rouen, officials said.
The terrorists were later shot and killed by police. ISIS’ Amaq news agency said the France attack was carried out by two Islamic State “soldiers,” Reuters reported.
In the past eleven days, we’ve seen five terrorist attacks in Europe: a truck attack in Nice, a suicide bomber in Ansbach, an attack with an axe on a train in Wuerzburg, a machete attack in Reutlingen, and a priest’s throat slit in Rouen, France.
Not one speaker addressed ISIS or Islamist terrorism last night. Democrats formulate their governing plans in a happier, peaceful, imaginary world.
It turns out that Team Hillary! was treating national security information with all the care it gave its own sensitive emails:
Democratic National Committee documents recently released by WikiLeaks include spreadsheets and emails that appear to show party officials planning which donors and prominent fundraisers to provide with appointments to federal boards and commissions.
The documents, which were circulated among top DNC officials in April, could raise legal questions for the party, says Ken Boehm, the chairman of the National Legal and Policy Center, a government watchdog group.
Perhaps “could answer legal questions” might be more accurate. This is pay for play.
Most of the donors listed on the spreadsheet have given to Clinton’s campaign. None gave to Sanders.
That will make it harder for herself to dodge this.
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus on Sunday said that Donald Trump wasn’t claiming to be passing on “factual information” when he linked Sen. Ted Cruz’s dad to President Kennedy assassin Lee Harvey Oswald a day after accepting the Republican presidential nomination.
“He’s got a right to talk about whatever he wants to talk about, however, I don’t think he was ever saying this was some sort of factual information,” Priebus said at a press conference on the eve of the Democratic National Convention. “It was something he referred to. He’s talked about it, he’s gotten off from it. As far as I’m concerned, we can move on from it.”
He got off it in May before he got back on it last week. We can move on, but will we be moving back again? Or moving on to something equally offensive and ridiculous?
On the off chance that far-left Dem congressman Keith Ellison is on your holiday shopping list, we have the perfect gift suggestion: a good biography of George Wallace. On today’s This Week, Ellison claimed that Donald Trump was “the worst Republican nominee since George Wallace.”
Just one small problem, of course. As Republican Rep. Tom Cole pointed out, Wallace was a Democrat who sought the Dem presidential nomination [multiple times] and even addressed the Democratic National Convention [in 1972.] Ruh-roh!
All of Obama’s promises, they say, come with an expiration date. Look who’s joining him:
Don’t look now, but Donald Trump is quietly changing his mind on taxes.
Less than 24 hours after he officially became the Republican party’s nominee, Trump’s team revealed that their tax plan would be the subject of some “tweaks.” Specifically, Trump is looking to abandon seven trillion dollars in tax cuts, fully two thirds of the benefit to taxpayers that he had originally proposed. In scale, this is akin to Trump’s abandoning his promise of a wall with Mexico and proposing a little more funding for border security in its place.
