What follows is everything you need to know about the latest batch of Hillary Clinton emails released by the State Department.
The Free Beacon has obtained exclusive copies of several emails the State Department is planning to release late Tuesday evening, the timing of which the administration insists was chosen due to its profound commitment to transparency. Like previously disclosed correspondence, the emails shed more light on the relationship between then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her “old friend” Sidney Blumenthal. The emails, which Hillary has said were “unsolicited,” show that the secretary of state was eager to accept Blumenthal’s counsel on a range of issues.
Hillary Clinton will attend in a fundraiser in New York on Tuesday hosted by Facebook millionaire and New Republic caretaker Chris Hughes, who recently described himself in a Vanity Fair profile as “the Antichrist, or something pretty close to it.”
I’m generally of the opinion that the federal government shouldn’t be spending very much money on just about anything* because the federal government is a garbage entity run by both self-interested bureaucrats who care little about freedom and also politicians who care more about giving goodies to their supporters than anything else. But I’m willing to put aside my ideological hesitance on the issue of wasteful spending in order to (probably) waste money on defending the planet against the threat of life-ending asteroids.
“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to work for free.”
The Hillary Clinton campaign likes to brag about its frugal ways, but this austere philosophy is not always applied consistently. Campaign manager John Podesta may take the bus every now and then, but the Clinton campaign is more than happy to pick up the rent tab for Hillary’s personal office in Manhattan, and to shell out for a private jet to make sure Hillary doesn’t have to interact with any commoners before giving a speech on social inequality.
Thugs, theocrats, and dictators, take note: among your most important strategic assets is the ability to persuade America’s liberal elites that your raw grabs for power and territory are insignificant, in moral terms, when compared to what they see as the U.S.’s own record of aggression and wrongdoing. Your position will be even stronger if you can get a critical mass of State Department diplomats, writers for the New Yorker, and members of Congress believing that your hand has been forced by U.S. policy. You started a nuclear weapons program/invaded a European country/claimed a huge chunk of the Pacific ocean for yourself because America drove you to it! You’re depraved on account you’re deprived.
