Secret Service agent says Hillary is unstable and violent

We may have a president who is being described as “volcanic, impulsive, enabled by sycophants, and disdainful of the rules set for everyone else.”  No, not Donald Trump.  Hillary Clinton.  A former White House secret service agent, Gary Byrne,  has written a book soon to be released entitled  “Crisis of Character: A White House Secret Service Officer Discloses his Firsthand Experience with Hillary, Bill, and How They Operate.”

It reportedly gives shocking accounts of what went on behind closed doors in the Clinton White House, including Hillary physically assaulting her husband, leaving him bruised and bleeding, and her violent tirades against staff and the agents sworn to protect her.  The book won’t be released until June 28, but it is already the #1 bestseller on Amazon.  After the jump, details from the publisher’s advance release material.

So now both presidential candidates are said to be “temperamentally unsuited” for the job!

Islamic exceptionalism

We keep hearing, “All religions are essentially the same.”  But no they aren’t!  That sentiment is particularly unhelpful when trying to understand the different religions.  So it’s refreshing to read a Muslim scholar explaining, in Time Magazine, no less, How Islam Is Different From Other Religions.

Shadi Hamid, the author of Islamic Exceptionalism, shows how and why Islam ties together religion and government and is so resistant to secularism. [Read more…]

Lutheran school investigated for LGBT discrimination

St. John’s Lutheran School in Baraboo, Wisconsin, is under federal investigation for discriminating against gay or transgender children.  Not that it discriminated against any of its students but because the principal sent a letter to parents asking them to affirm that they and their child support the school’s handbook when it comes to sinful behavior and to send a copy of the child’s birth certificate to show his or her gender.

The Freedom from Religion Foundation filed a complaint against the Wisconsin Synod school, arguing that since it accepts some federal funding (for school lunches, busing, and a No Child Left Behind program), it is subject to the civil rights provisions of Title IX and so is guilty of discrimination.

Secret Laws

A new study has found that over the last three decades the number of “secret laws” has been surging.  These include classified bills passed by Congress, directives of the Intelligence Court, and Executive Orders from the president.

Secret laws are inherently unjust, since those subject to them are unaware that they exist, do not know that they need to obey them, and yet are punished if they violate them. [Read more…]

Why did Clinton set up her own e-mail account?

Hillary Clinton is in legal trouble for using her own private e-mail server for State Department business, which is against the law.  Her hackable server may have also endangered national security.  So why did she do this?  Carl Bernstein, the investigative reporter who helped break the Watergate scandal, gives the answer.  See why she did it after the jump.

Those religious-extremist Anglicans

Yes, American foreign policy is a laughing-stock abroad, but that means at least some of the reaction is funny.  British commentator Douglas Murray discusses the new American counter-terrorism strategy, which, in its written form, never mentions “Islam.”  Terrorist-inspiring religious extremism is a problem, says Secretary of State John Kerry, for all religions.  Which has Mr. Murray worried about what’s going on with those Anglicans.
