Hillary Shreds The Truth, Khan & The Constitution, Growing Leftwing/Big Tech Alliance

Hillary Clinton Shreds the Truth
by Gary Bauer, Contributing Author: Hillary Shreds the Truth - Hillary Clinton agreed to be interviewed on Fox News last Sunday. Apparently she was under the impression she was actually on CNN, or some other liberal network. How else can one explain why she thought she could get away with a truly bizarre claim that FBI Director James Comey "said my answers were truthful, and what I've said is consistent with what I have told the American people."

Even the Washington Post could not stomach this lie on top of a lie. It "awarded" Hillary the dreaded "Four Pinocchios" rating reserved only for HUGE falsehoods.

In a July 7, 2016 hearing on Capitol Hill, South Carolina Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy had this exchange with FBI Director Comey:"Secretary Clinton said there was nothing marked classified on her emails, either sent or received. Was that true?" Gowdy asked.

"That's not true," Comey replied.

"Secretary Clinton said, 'I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email. There is no classified material.' Was that true?" Gowdy continued.

"There was classified material emailed," said Comey.
So, Director Comey actually said the exact opposite of what Hillary is claiming. Not a nuanced difference - the exact opposite! The Clintons are corrupt. They have lied their entire political lives. If Hillary wins this November, the corruption she will bring to government will break the few remaining bonds of trust in our institutions.

Khan And The Constitution - An important point that has been lost in all the controversy over Khizr Khan's speech at the Democratic National Convention and Donald Trump's response to it is that Khan's main point was shockingly wrong. He suggested that Trump's proposal to temporarily halt Muslim immigration is unconstitutional. He even brandished a pocket copy of the Constitution to punctuate his point and accused Trump of never having read it.

It was an amazing moment. Does Mr. Khan not realize that he was speaking at the nominating convention of Hillary Clinton, who has endorsed unconstitutional restrictions on religious liberty and promised to severely curtail the First Amendment right to free speech, to appoint judges that would gut the Second Amendment's right to bear arms and to sign more constitutionally dubious executive orders than President Obama? Apparently not.

Khan's suggestion that it is unconstitutional to limit immigration based on religion may be taken for granted by Democratic convention goers and liberal journalists, but it's incorrect. The response often heard last week in the wake of the speech was that the Constitution says religious tests are not permissible. The religious tests provision appears in Article VI of the Constitution. It states that no office holder or government employee can be required to adhere to a particular religion.

That provision has been misinterpreted in several ways, including to suggest that a voter may not take religion into account when choosing whom to vote for. But that's not what the article says. It says that the government cannot take religion into account, but voters certainly can. More to the point, the provision says nothing about whether lawmakers can take religion into account when deciding who may enter the country.

For example, during the Iranian hostage crisis, the U.S. banned Iranians from entering the country unless they opposed the Shiite Islamist regime. Who issued the order? Oh yeah, it was that radical right-wing demagogue Jimmy Carter.

It is amazing that liberals now seem so concerned with the Constitution, a document they have long dismissed. (Can anyone forget Nancy Pelosi's response - "Are you serious? Are you serious?" - when asked by a reporter about the constitutionality of Obamacare's individual mandate?)

It is also amazing how much of the left's strategy is based on distorting the Constitution. Sadly, they know they can get away with it because so few Americans are familiar with what the Constitution actually says.

The Growing Leftwing/Big Tech Alliance - It seems a day doesn't go by without another billionaire endorsing Hillary Clinton for president. It's surprising given that she regularly rails against the one percent. Her ultra-rich endorsers must think she's lying about all the business regulation and tax hikes she's promising.

The latest example is Warren Buffett, CEO of Berkshire Hathaway. Individuals in this country can endorse whomever they wish, thank goodness. What's more troubling is the increasing efforts by big tech to stifle conservative viewpoints. You'll remember Mozilla Firefox, a search engine whose CEO was forced out of the company for donating to Proposition 8, California's marriage amendment.

Here's the latest example. You may have heard of Siri, a computer program that acts as a personal assistant on iPhones. Ask Siri a question, and she will give you an answer. She can tell you where you can find a cheap meal in your area or who ran for president in 1952. She knows a lot, but she apparently doesn't know where the movie "Hillary's America" is playing. The film by Dinesh D'Souza examines the history of the Democratic Party and what he thinks are the true motivations of Hillary Clinton. It doesn't portray Hillary in a positive light, as you can imagine. If you ask Siri where the film is playing, she says she's sorry but she doesn't know. It seems she's never heard of the film.

Another example: When conservative talk show host Michael Savage took to Facebook to express his views on the link between illegal immigration and crime, he was blocked from doing so. He was told his post violated Facebook's policies.

You may recall that this spring, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg met with a group of conservatives worried that their viewpoints were getting suppressed. Facebook assured them that changes would be made. Similar complaints have been made against other tech companies, including YouTube. Meanwhile, when it's conservatives or Jews who are being attacked, nothing happens.

This shouldn't surprise us. After all, most tech CEOs are Democrats, and so are their employees. One recent study found that more than 80 percent of donations in the 2016 campaign by workers at Amazon, Google, Facebook and Apple went to Democrats.

Houston, We've Got A Problem - Speaking of Facebook, shortly after the shooting in Dallas in which five police officers were killed, a student at the University of Houston took to Facebook and posted, "Forget #BlackLivesMatter; more like AllLivesMatter."

As you might expect, the roof caved in on her. The student was an officer in the student government at the school. She was suspended from student government for 50 days and forced to attend sensitivity training and several other culturally approved events. Her suspension likely means she will forfeit the $750 stipend she gets as part of her work in the student government.

This is absurd. One of the primary missions of higher education is to teach children about the nature of liberty and free debate. Universities are not supposed to be "safe spaces" that protect fragile snowflakes from every perceived slight or micro-aggression. Rather, the entire point of higher ed. is that students should be exposed to ideas that may challenge them and even make them uncomfortable.

ACTION ITEM: I urge you to call the University of Houston's president, Renu Khator. According to the university's website she can be reached at: 713-743-8820. Ask for the office of the president and firmly but politely remind her that as a university president she should be working to ensure that students are taught to debate and listen to other viewpoints, not suppress them. If you'd prefer to email, you can do so here.
