Perhaps English isn’t her first language and she doesn’t understand the meaning of “uniform.” Can you picture her with this ugly bag on her head marching in a formation like the one above at the Citadel? Make no mistake. this sharia-compliance campaign is being sponsored by designated terrorist group CAIR, whose only intent is to […]
This is the real “hate speech” that the EU, Twitter and Facebook should be targeting: “The documentary showed hidden camera footage of imams in Danish mosques advocating the corporal punishment of children, stoning and whipping unfaithful spouses and requiring women to have sex with violent spouses.” Instead, however, it is much more likely that they […]
Author’s note: Yesterday Jihad Watch posted an AP article about how Pope Francis is considering dropping the Catholic Church’s Just War doctrine. The article’s author, Maria J. Stephan, attended the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy with me, where she was a noted advocate of nonviolence. She sent an email to the school community in […]
What else could it possibly be? Incompetence? My latest in FrontPage: May 31, 2016: An article in The Islamic Monthly explains at wrist-slitting length how Muslim professor Joseph Lumbard was denied tenure at Brandeis University because of “Islamophobia” among administrators there. I can’t imagine that anyone beyond Lumbard’s mom would care to read in such […]
The problem with both Jourova’s and White’s statements below, and with this whole initiative, is that they assume that “hate speech” is an entity that can be identified objectively, when actually it is a subjective judgment based on one’s own political preconceptions. And given the years-long insistence from Leftists and Islamic supremacists that any honest […]
Um, not so much.
From Clinton’s E-Mail Shenanigans Sure Don’t Look Like an Honest Mistake of the situation (emphases mine):
…The State Department’s Office of Inspector General has released its report about Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server while she was secretary of state. The report does not uncover any smoking guns — no records of Clinton saying “Heh, heh, heh, they’ll never FOIA my e-mails NOW!!!!” — what it does lay out is deeply troubling. Even though her supporters have already begun the proclamations of “nothing to see here, move along.”
It lays to rest the longtime Clinton defense that this use of a private server was somehow normal and allowed by government rules: It was not normal, and was not allowed by the government rules in place at the time “The Department’s current policy, implemented in 2005, is that normal day-to-day operations should be conducted on an authorized Automated Information System (AIS), which “has the proper level of security control to … ensure confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the resident information.”
It also shreds the defense that “Well, Colin Powell did it too” into very fine dust, and then neatly disposes of the dust. As the report makes very clear, there are substantial differences between what Powell did and what Clinton did…
It’s really hard to come away from reading this report thinking “Yup, just an honest mistake.” Or indeed, “just a mistake, no big deal.” Or even “no worse than others have done.” I worked in bank IT for several years before I went to business school, and when this story first broke, I enjoyed an amusing hour or so envisioning what regulators would have said if we’d tried any of these sorts of excuses on them. Since then, I’ve had several such conversations with folks who are still laboring in the trenches of the securities industry, and their bitter laughter still rings in my ears. Why is Clinton being held to a lower standard?…
