Last night was Hillary’s big night. Finally, FINALLY it was her turn! Last night was the night to tie all previous theme nights into a giant bow…er crown.

United Together: Protests, Bernie tossing himself under the bus, illegal immigrants and Michelle Obama were given center stage. Yay?

Fight for Families and Children: We were treated to a litany of celebrity twits and mothers whose adult children, criminals all, made fatal choices – but lets give ’em a pass because cops are BAD. The night finished with a weirdly folksy “I met this girl” speech from former President Bill Clinton. Missing from his speech was failing the bar exam multiple times, fired from Watergate, Whitewater, failing at healthcare, taking money from foreign donors, and more. But yeah, it was such a darling speech.

Working Together: Uh huh…Wednesday was more of ‘lets say all sorts of nice things about someone we really don’t like.’ But you know, she’s great at the big challenges and getting people to work together. Saving Israel, Palestine, Turkey, Libya (except for Benghazi), and just generally being Wonder Woman in a pantsuit with Blackberry in hand.

President Obama, who referred to himself 119 times during the speech, figuratively passed the torch complete with laughs, waves to crowd… [click to continue…]

The Democratic Party really has its collective panties in a bunch over Donald Trump’s comment that the Russians should hack and leak Hillary Clinton’s missing emails.

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) thinks that Trump may have violated the Logan Act, which prohibits citizens from negotiating with hostile foreign nations, and should be investigated.

John Podesta, the chairman of Hillary’s campaign, wants to get assurances that Trump would not leak information to the Russkies before providing him with intelligence briefings. “And I think they’ll have to find a way to negotiate with him and with his campaign to get … more than assurances ― sort of some proof that they can be able to hold on to that information,” the peeved Podesta said in an interview with the Huffington Post.

Senator Harry Reid wants to go even farther. He wants to give Trump fake briefings.

Reid, who certainly could write volumes on his own corruption and title the opus, “My Fondest Memories of the Senate,” also told the HuffPo: “How would the CIA and the other intelligence agencies brief this guy? How could they do that? I would suggest to the intelligence agencies, if you’re forced to brief this guy, don’t tell him anything, just fake it, because this man is dangerous. Fake it, pretend you’re doing a briefing, but you can’t give the guy any information.”

Dangerous! Dangerous, I say!

It is certainly true that Trump has a bald-faced lack of any sort of verbal filter. His ardent fans love that about him. As for me — I wince. But Trump seemed to set the record straight Thursday morning when he sat down for an interview with Fox News host Brian Kilmeade. And yes, he was joking about the Russia email thing.

Trump-kilmeade-1

Trump and Brian Kilmeade.

“Of course I was being sarcastic. …I didn’t encourage anybody. First of all, said with sarcasm, second of all it didn’t encourage anybody. They may have them, who knows who has them. They don’t know. They have no idea. And it’s pretty sad when a foreign country, whether it’s them (Russia) , or China or anybody else disrespects us so much that they would even do a thing like that.”

Furthermore, the outrage just might backfire on the Dems.

Something is noticeably absent from the DNC narrative this week. Several somethings in fact. National Security for one. Terrorism for another. ISIS for a third. The attacks in Germany and France mentioned? Not. One. Bit. Yet many rational thinking Americans know and fully understand that Europe’s refugee terrorist problem is here, its real, and its going to get worse. Heck, even Chancellor Angela Merkel admits it!

The German leader, who cut short her summer holiday to speak after a string of Islamist attacks rocked the country, said the entire continent was being “ravaged” by terrorism.

She described recent attacks in Ansbach, Wurzburg and Munich as “horrifying and depressing”

So this means that Germany plans to step back and reassess their wide-open door policy regarding these “refugees” right?

angela-merkel-speech

Not. So. Much.

In the wake of the killings, Mrs Merkel said Germany now needed a better “early warning system” to spot radicalised Muslims among the newly-arrived migrants.

She said the central government would “redouble its efforts” against the threat, increasing staff numbers and resources for security services.

She said: “The terrorists want to make us lose sight of what is important to us, break down our cohesion and sense of community as well as inhibiting our way of life, our openness and our willingness take in people who are in need.

“They see hatred and fear between cultures and they see hatred and fear between religions.

“We stand decisively against that.”

She added that Germany would “stick to our principles” and “give shelter to those who deserve it”.

I really want to go to a political convention once. Just because it looks kind of fun from my couch. Of course the issue of being somewhere between indifferent and disgusted about the candidates for president might be a minor problem.

This year, the RNC and DNC look more like a coronation. Both have all sorts of pageantry (and behind the scenes drama). Here is a list of five things that are all but identical about Trump and Clinton (or for Potterheads Voldemort and Umbridge).

Five similar things from the RNC and DNC

#DemsInPhilly: Obama and Clinton Trumped

July 28, 2016

To be clear, Donald J. Trump was not my first choice to be the Republican nominee for President in 2016. He was my number 16 choice. Governor John Kasich from my birth state of Ohio was my number 17 choice. However, what’s done is done. My husband worked in Midtown Manhattan for many years and […]

We here at Victory Girls care about our readers. I took one for the team last night and watched the #DNCInPhilly. I couldn’t bring myself to do it the night before.

Nice, Munich, Ansbach, Wurzbur, Reutlingen, Garde-Columbe. What do they all have in common? Every single one of those killed or injured is a victim of a terrorist attack. Every. Single. One. And now, we must add another horrific attack to the list. Two men claiming allegiance to Islamic State killed a priest and gravely injured […]

#DNCinPHL: Dem Convention Day One Brings Protests, Boos & Bernie Sanders [VIDEOS]

July 26, 2016

No, it was protests and boos, both inside and outside the auditorium. Let’s start with what happened outside the barrier-encircled auditorium (a wall, if you will) where Bernie Sanders supporters […]
