EXCLUSIVE: New Emails Shed Light on Hillary Clinton’s Relationship with Sidney Blumenthal

"Pls print."

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.

After reading Phil Corbett’s response to questions about the tastefulness of running images in the paper of a “portrait” of Pope Benedict XVI made from condoms, I’m beginning to wonder.

One Thing the Federal Government SHOULD Be Wasting Money On

Liberal elites would rather fund cowboy poetry than save the planet, smdh / AP

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.

Hillary Clinton Lives the High Life While Unpaid Staffers Struggle to Survive

Clinterns.

“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to work for free.”

—Hillary Clinton

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.

Iran, The New Yorker, and the Moral High Ground

AP

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.

Supreme Court to Tackle Thorny Pop Culture Issues

AP

I have to say, I’m always interested to see which rights the Supreme Court will read into existence by divining the entrails of the Constitution. After their succinct and excellent explanations it all becomes so clear: You’re telling me that after their expert rulings you don’t see a clear cut right to abortion and gay marriage in the language of our founding documents? Wow. I bet James Madison would like to have a word with you.

Anyway, given that the Supreme Court has an essentially unlimited ability to alter the nation as it sees fit, I have to wonder why we, the long-abused fans of popular culture, have not tried to use the court of last resort to reshape the world in ways that we want. In the future I envision, things will be much better.

Non-White Politicians Are Running for President and Liberals Can’t Stand It

The 2016 Republican field is young and racially diverse, especially compared to the Democratic side, which is comprised almost exclusively of elderly whites. Liberals find this upsetting, and have vented their anger by questioning the racial authenticity of GOP minority candidates.

Marvel Needs to Make a Movie About Silver Sable

Silver Sable comes in many styles. Not sure which I prefer tbh.

Over at Pajiba, they’re very concerned that we’re getting another movie about Spider-Man instead of a movie about a female superhero. Now, it’s not rocket science why that’s the case—seriously, look at the list they’ve put together and explain to me how you convince a studio to spend $100 million on a character named Echo whose only real qualification seems to be that she checks off a couple of identity politics boxes rather than $100 million on a superhero that the whole world knows—but I understand the impulse. The Marvel Universe has a giant stable of heroes to choose from and the world doesn’t really need another Spider-Man origin story.
