YES: Darth Vader Delivered A 3D Printed Arm To Boy In Need

So awesome: “‘Downton Abbey”s Dowager Countess delivers epic rant against government-run healthcare.” Libertarian fans of Downton Abbey got a special treat Sunday night when Violet, the Dowager Countess of Grantham, let loose with an excoriation of statism right out of John Stuart Mill. 

“the candidacy of Donald Trump is something that could not happen in a nation that could read. This is the full flower of post-literate politics.”

Anyone else would go to jail for this, but not Obama’s friends.

The FBI is investigating whether members of Hillary Clinton’s inner circle “cut and pasted” material from the government’s classified network so that it could be sent to her private email address, former State Department security officials say. Clinton and her top aides had access to a Pentagon-run classified network that goes up to the Secret level, as well as a separate system used for Top Secret communications.

The two systems — the Secret Internet Protocol Router Network (SIPRNet) and the Joint Worldwide Intelligence Communications System (JWICS) — are not connected to the unclassified system, known as the Non-Classified Internet Protocol Router Network (NIPRNet). You cannot email from one system to the other, though you can use NIPRNet to send ­emails outside the government.

Somehow, highly classified information from SIPRNet, as well as even the super-secure JWICS, jumped from those closed systems to the open system and turned up in at least 1,340 of Clinton’s home emails — including several the CIA earlier this month flagged as containing ultra-secret Sensitive Compartmented Information and Special Access Programs, a subset of SCI. SAP includes “dark projects,” such as drone operations, while SCI protects intelligence sources and methods.

Yeah, I’ve tried this one too. The “point out that Trump is the enemy of the working people he claims to love” strategy sounds good, but it doesn’t work either. Nothing works.

The RNC just booted National Review from its debate because they criticized a guy who retweets neo-Nazis.

“He compares the months he spent finishing the painting (of Trump) to Michelangelo’s work on the Sistine Chapel”

This is glorious. Number 4 is my favorite.

This is the second time he’s done this. First time it was Nazis.

Trump on video: “When I get to DC, I’m Going to Become Part of the Establishment so I can Make Deals With Democrats”

“Me? I’m just going to continue to support the greatest tool of liberty and decency in American political life: gridlock.”
