If there is one thing Hillary Clinton has shown that she excels at, it is building a complex, integrated platform.  As the planks in this campaign’s platform continue to join together into one smooth surface,  appropriately,  Hillary spent part of her day at the Carpenters International Training Center in Las Vegas.   She spoke with with Doug McCarron, president of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America, and Bill Irwin Jr., Executive Director of the Carpenters International Training Center.   The women carpenters looked especially pleased to meet her.  Nice to see sisters entering the brotherhood!

On CNN this afternoon, political director,  David Chalian blamed Hillary Clinton for making her server and emails political.  Apparently he missed the July 15 letter from Democrats on the Select Committee on Benghazi.

Select Committee Dems Call Out Republicans for Turning Political Turrets on Hillary Clinton

July 15, 2015

Read more >>>>

As Hillary said at the Iowa Wing Ding dinner this past weekend, it is not she who has turned this issue into a political football.

Not only is Hillary not the one who turned tragedy into a political issue, the ones who have done so have changed  the focus of the investigation from physical security in regions at risk to communications security inside the government.   From the beginning, Hillary has promised to cooperate fully, to provide the documents requested, to testify publicly, and to answer all questions.  Proactively, she provided 55,000 pages of work-related email to the State Department and asked the department to release the emails to the public.

Her focus all along has been the American public, her former and, she hopes, future employers.  Dogged by a whiny, overwrought press corps since before she announced her run, she has consistently kept American voters and their concerns central to her campaign from the moment she asked us to hire her.

You really cannot blame Hillary for distrusting the media which long has been critical and adversarial on all things Clinton.  The recent smear effort by the New York Times attests that Hillary-hatred is alive and well in so called “newsrooms.”

Blah blah + (Hillary) Clinton + Blah blah + Criminal = Header Formula

NYT: Strong on the Hillary Attack – Feeble on the Walk-Back

July 25, 2015

NYTimes Washing its Hands and Dryig them in the Dust on Botched Implication of Hillary Clinton

July 28, 2015

CNN has joined the ranks of Hillary bashers.  Netting the first exclusive interview with the candidate since the campaign launch appeared to be a feather in their cap at first.  But Brianna Keilar abused the opportunity to launch her own campaign – against Hillary.

KEILAR:  I’m wondering if you can address a vulnerability that we’ve seen you dealing with recently.  We see in our recent poll that nearly six in 10 Americans say they don’t believe that you’re honest and trustworthy.

Do you understand why they feel that way?

CLINTON:  Well, I think when you are subjected to the kind of constant barrage of attacks that are largely fomented by and coming from the Right and –

KEILAR:  But do you bear any responsibility for that?

It is a mean season.  Megyn Kelly is apparently at fault for her own abuse from the mouth of Donald Trump.   And Hillary is … what?  Responsible for attacks on her?  Blaming the victim, especially when the victim is a woman, has been going on for millennia.  So CNN’s new posture on Hillary is to blame her for attitudes promulgated by the media in the media.

CNN should be very careful taking a page out of the New York Times manual, however.  It did not turn out so well for the Times when their story was shown to be fiction.  Chalian is wrong as the July 15 letter attests,  and Hillary is right when she says that the Select Committee has altered its purpose and done so for political purposes.

They would also be well-advised to think twice about trying to victimize Hillary Clinton.  Another of their anchors, Kate Bolduan, won an interview and plane tour with Philippe Reines back in January 2013 as Hillary was recovering from a scary blood clot.

Philippe Reines: “I felt sorry for the blood clot.”

Statement

Hillary and I were deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Julian Bond, and our hearts go out to Pamela and his children. Julian lived his life at the center of the fight for civil rights, equality, and justice. As a leader of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and the Southern Poverty Law Center, member of the Georgia Legislature, Chairman of the NAACP, and as a professor, Julian lived by and advanced the ideals that led him to the civil rights movement as a young man.

I treasured every conversation I’ve had over several decades and marveled that as his hair turned grey, his brilliant mind, sharp wit, and gifts of speech retained their youthful vitality and intensity.

Julian helped us to become a more perfect union and always pushed us to do better. We will miss him.

From NYT

U.S.

Julian Bond, Former N.A.A.C.P. Chairman and Civil Rights Leader, Dies at 75

Julian Bond, a charismatic figure of the 1960s civil rights movement, a lightning rod of the anti-Vietnam War campaign and a lifelong champion of equal rights for minorities, notably as chairman of the N.A.A.C.P., died on Saturday night in Fort Walton Beach, Fla. He was 75.

He died after a brief illness, the Southern Poverty Law Center said in a statement Sunday morning.

Mr. Bond was one of the original leaders of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee while he was a student at Morehouse College in Atlanta. He was the committee’s communications director for five years and deftly guided the national news media toward stories of violence and discrimination as the committee challenged legal segregation in the South’s public facilities.

Come ye from the hills! Come ye from the mills! Come ye everywhere! There’s a fair!  Almost all of the presidential candidates are there!

In Iowa, it is a skin game all about rubbing shoulders, glad-handing, soap-boxing, and eating strange foods or normal foods in strange ways.  Hillary opted for a pork chop on a stick eaten in an Elizabethan manner – held in hand  – do not try this at the dinner table unless you enjoy scornful glances.  But all is fair at the Iowa State Fair.

Neither Hillary nor her opposition front runner climbed the soap box today.  Both she and The Teflon Donald chose other venues.  In a shady spot near a corral where little heifers were being shown by 4-H kids, former Senator Tom Harkin  introduced Hillary with a resounding endorsement citing chapter and verse of her service with him in the Senate.

Before going off for a stroll on the fair grounds and casual meet-ups with supporters and voters in general, Hillary took a few questions from the press.  She was cool, calm, composed, and responded patiently, thoroughly, consistently with what she has been saying all along, and all with her dazzling smile,

She called out the Republicans for making a partisan political issue out of the Benghazi tragedy and faulted the Select Committee for retrofitting its original purpose, preventing another such tragedy, to serve as a witch hunt in an election cycle.

Here is a longer video from C-SPAN.
