Still Digesting the IG Report on

No, we still haven't got the State Department IG report damning Hillary's email use full digested:

Did the Clinton Email Server Have an Internet-Based Printer? Apparently so. An wireless internet printer broadcasts requires that everything sent to it be broadcast by radio where it can be intercepted by anyone clever enough to set up the antenna. Was Hillary's encrypted? Given her technical sophistication, I doubt it.

AP factcheck: Yes, Hillary lied about her e-mail server Ya think? Morning Joe on Clinton’s response to IG report: ‘That was mind-boggling’ If you're boggled when Ms. Clinton lies, cheats and steals, you'll be constantly boggled.

The system Clinton cheated exists because world is a dangerous place
Jonah compares Hillary unfavorably to Trump: All of Hillary Clinton’s Lies Are Premeditated
Unlike Donald Trump’s lies, which he usually vomits up spontaneously like a vesuvian geyser, Clinton’s were carefully prepared, typed up, and repeated for all the world to hear over and over again.
More on the comparison between Hillary Clinton's crimes and the fate of Petty Officer First Class Kristian Saucier whi inadvertently put secrets at risk by taking photos inside a nuclear sub with a cell phone:
Unlike Clinton’s private server, which we know was targeting for hacking on multiple occasions, there is no evidence anyone was aware of Petty Officer Saucier’s cell phone pics or ever tried to get access to them. Saucier’s former co-worker tells Politico his friend is getting very different treatment than the likely Democratic nominee. . .
The Navy says the photos are classified “confidential,” which is the lowest tier of protection for classified information and is designated for information that could cause some damage to national security but not “serious” or “exceptionally grave” damage.
Intelligence agencies claim that Clinton’s account contained 65 messages with information considered “Secret” and 22 classified at the “Top Secret” level. Some messages contained data under an even more restrictive “special access program” designation.
Nevertheless, the State Department is resisting attempt by Judicial Watch to have Hillary testify under oath at a deposition. Given the family's penchant for lying under oath, I can see where they might not want to see that happen here. It makes the State Dept. look bad worse.

Ace has an Obligatory If-Hillary-Is-Indicted-Yadda-Yadda-Yadda Post, which links to: If Clinton Implodes, Democrats May Turn to Biden and Warren. Eeeew, just eeeew. An idiot and a fake Redskin. Die-Hard Bernie Sanders Backers See F.B.I. as Answer to Their Prayers heh!

Althouse notes "The populist uprisings on her left and her right seem almost designed to draw from Clinton a defense of the country itself..." The only thing Hillary will ever defend is herself, and maybe Chelsea. All else can be jettisoned at need.

Some Clinton supporters feel intimidated by all the Bernie Bros: Why Some Clinton Supporters Are Not 'Really Ready To Go Public' Now they should imagine being conservative.

Hillary Clinton Won’t Say How Much Goldman Sachs CEO Invested With Her Son-in-Law Remember those bad Greek hedge funds that Chelsea's husband managed? Follow the money.
The decision for Blankfein to invest in Hillary Clinton’s son-in-law’s company is just one of many ways Goldman Sachs has used its wealth to forge a tight bond with the Clinton family. The company paid Hillary Clinton $675,000 in personal speaking fees, paid Bill Clinton $1,550,000 in personal speaking fees, and donated between $250,000 and $500,000 to the Clinton Foundation. At a time when Goldman Sachs directly lobbied Hillary Clinton’s State Department, the company routinely partnered with the Clinton Foundation for events, even convening a donor meeting for the foundation at the Goldman Sachs headquarters in Manhattan.
Intapundit endorses "Crooked Hillary" label:
I saw CNN tonight, where Wolf Blitzer was forced to read Trump’s statement that he would debate the Democratic nominee, who would probably be “Crooked Hillary.”
Nobody uses the media like the Donald.

Where have we heard that name before? Jonathan Gruber’s latest research undercuts Hillary Clinton’s policy agenda:
MIT economist Jonathan Gruber (yes, that Jonathan Gruber) is the co-author of a paper which finds there were long-term negative effects for some children after the introduction of a universal child care program in Quebec. The Christian Post reports:
In a paper recently published by the National Bureau of Economic Research, Gruber et al. studied increased childcare access in Quebec and found it to be detrimental to child development.
“We first confirm earlier findings showing reduced contemporaneous non-cognitive development following the program introduction in Quebec, with little impact on cognitive test scores,” reads the abstract for the study.“We then show these non-cognitive deficits persisted to school ages, and also that cohorts with increased child care access subsequently had worse health, lower life satisfaction, and higher crime rates later in life. The impacts on criminal activity are concentrated in boys.”
But the point of universal child care is not to help the children, it's to help the politicians. (Gruber is the MIT economist caught saying that people had to be tricked into accepting Obamacare, and was one of it's chief designers).

Intapundit on the on again off again debate between Bernie and the Donald:

Not to mention, a great practice bout for October’s debates with Hillary.
Dan Riehl has a different take: Trump Keeping the wind in Bernies sails
“think chess not checkers. It’s a thing of beauty, he’s now saying he won’t debate Bernie but he sure elevated him.” It should certainly put a little wind in Bernie’s sails for the last phase of the far left’s internecine version of 2008’s “Operation Chaos.”
Robots for Trump (and Clinton)
No matter what happens in November, one big winner has already emerged from the ruins of America’s 2016 election: the robot. Both major candidates have embraced policies that will ensure the accelerating replacement of low-wage workers with no-wage workers.

Under President Donald Trump, illegal immigrants and possibly even legal migrants will have a harder time finding work, meaning the businesses that now rely on their labor will turn to machines. Under President Hillary Clinton, a big increase in the minimum wage is certainly in the cards, in which case get used to ordering your Big Mac on a touch screen.
Politico on How Hillary Loses:
Donald Trump can actually win if Clinton makes these four mistakes. Spoiler alert: She’s already making all of them. . .
