Absolute Moral Authority at

Ashe Schow has Five Lingering Questions From Clinton’s Email Scandal
1. What’s the difference between “extremely careless” and “gross negligence?”
2. Why weren’t Clinton’s aides indicted?
3. Why didn’t Comey push for a special prosecutor?
4. Why is it okay for Clinton to get off the hook over “convenience?”
5. Why did Clinton lie repeatedly if she did nothing wrong?
Liberal commentators are decrying the call to imprison Hillary at the RNC convention outrageous. Here's Why RNC Calls To ‘Lock Her Up’ Are Entirely Reasonable. Did any of them complain when democrates called for Bush and Chaney to be arrested? Stacy McCain on  how The GOP convention exposes the reality of media bias. ANALYSIS: TRUE:
The media is spending more time doing a forensic analysis of Melania's speech than the FBI spent on Hillary's emails.

Remember when Hillary Clinton Accused Obama of Plagiarism?- No. of course, not. The media didn't make an issue out of it. They wanted Obama to win.

Even a casual listener can hear the lack of experience every time Hillary Clinton or other Democrats start talking about the economy or business. They talk about how they will force businesses to share profits with employees. They talk about how unions are essential to the growth of the middle class. They talk about how employers should pay a higher minimum wage. They are happy to stick their hands in companies’ profits. Yet they speak from having absolutely no experience ever having run a company. They have never had to meet a payroll or make business decisions. They view businesses as bottomless pots of money they can simply raid to provide more goodies for one favored group or another.

Remember how Maureen Dowd talked about Patricia Smith’s ‘absolute moral authority?’

No, I don’t remember that either.

Because it didn’t happen.

Instead, Patricia Smith is being relentlessly ‘fact-checked’ this morning. By PolitiFact. By The Washington Post. And probably many more.

The crux of Patricia Smith’s argument is that Hillary is a liar who told her, more-or-less over the body of her dead son, that the ‘video’ was responsible for the Benghazi attacks. Mrs Smith believes that Hillary knew, at the time, that the Benghazi attacks were organized terrorism. And there is strong evidence to indicate that she did know that. Including an inconveniently discovered email to her own daughter, sent on the night of the attack.

Just as there is strong evidence to indicate that, for days afterwards, Hillary, along with the rest of the Obama administration, was telling lots of people, and even foreign governments, that the video was responsible for the attack.

So, why is it so hard to believe that she would have told Patricia Smith the same thing?
Thus far, the best the Patricia Smith ‘fact checkers’ have been able to come up with is “there’s no conclusive evidence,” that Hillary mentioned the video to Smith, that other family members at the ceremony say that Clinton didn’t mention the video to them (so, absence of evidence is suddenly proof?), or that Smith’s story has changed over time (although her fundamental assertion has not).

I believe Patricia Smith.

Because the moral authority of parents who bury children killed in Benghazi is absolute.

  1. Interesting, piss and moan about something occurring at the RNC, something the Dems refuse to do for themselves. Same people who proclaimed they didn't need Reps or got a pen and a phone not needing Congress. Nobody but Dems matter.
