Three questions “they” should ask Hillary Clinton.

Here are three questions it would be great to ask Hillary Clinton.

  1. Do you agree never to do a Friday afternoon document dump?
  2. Will you guarantee that you’ll appoint a nonpartisan, apolitical Commissioner of Internal Revenue?
  3. Will you agree to appoint an independent, forensic IT professional to  guarantee the documentary integrity of all your emails?

It would be nice to see her torch her own campaign by weasel-wording these questions.

Unlike the living answer to Hillary’s dictum — “What difference at this point does it make?” — President Barack “Test Signal” Obama, voting present most of the time, no matter how dangerous it gets at Fardu دو  or Zahedan, and unlike someone with a clear conscience, Hillary, who represents the past and is so polarizing, calculating, disingenuous, insincere, ambitious, overconfident, secretive, who considers herself inevitable and entitled to the White House and who will do anything to win, though out of touch, will not be able to handle these questions.  Even refusing to answer will not help.

Why did Belichick suddenly hold another press conference?

Nice.  Good.  Fine.  Belichick claims innocence.

But it does not make sense.  Sure everything sounds scientific, thorough and on the surface, plausible.  But who is going to believe him?  Maybe fans in Boston, but that is about it.  How does that help him?  I cannot see it.  Nobody is going to put the cheating scandal on the spike because of this press conference.  He is walking right into the land of “the lady doth protest too much.”

So why did Belichick suddenly hold a second press conference?

Is there something cooking behind the scene that compelled him to hold another press conference?  Is Robert Kraft, the team owner, pushing him out there again?  Why?

And there is another question: Why hasn’t Kraft said anything publicly?  The NFL is not talking much, which makes sense, but I could see Kraft saying something.  He hasn’t.  Why is that?

The untold story, inquiring minds want to know!

Confession is always a place of victory.

Lovely article about the faithful priest and confession, always a place of victory.

According to Christian Science Monitor, Mr. Obama is going to encode his will for border disintegrity in a few weeks, using an executive order.

Obama will take executive action on immigration after summer, adviser says.

It seems an unwise move, but his nature seems to be aligned to sacrificing other people to his will, regardless of the cost.

It reminds me of the pharaoh of Egypt.

Then the Lord said to Moses, “Go in to Pharaoh; for I have hardened his heart and the heart of his servants…”
Exodus 10:1

A wise scholar known as Ramban taught that the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, so that Pharaoh could freely choose to let Israel go or to retain them as slaves. Had the Lord not hardened Pharaoh’s heart, the plagues of trouble laid down on Egypt might have compelled Pharaoh to let the Israelites to go: not a freely chosen decision. And in the end, Pharaoh’s heart was so hard that he did send his chariots and charioteers after the Israelites.

Back to 2014 and the USA/Mexico border…

It was Pharaoh’s will to keep a foreign people, the Israelites, inside the Egyptian border as slaves, while Mr. Obama wants to sucker people from other lands through our border, into the USA, not as slaves per se but as easy-to-exploit workers.

Unwise for Pharaoh, unwise for Mr. Obama.

Happiness

Lots to think about, especially in times of trouble.
