Ivanka Trump hinted at a different sort of Republican National Convention.

“We’re putting together the lineup of speakers now and the interest is incredible,” she told radio host John Fredericks Wednesday, as first reported by BuzzFeed.

“I think it will be a convention unlike any we’ve ever seen. It will be substantive. It will be interesting. It will be different. It’s not going to be a ho-hum lineup of, you know, the typical politicians.

It’s going to be a great combination of our great politicians, but also great American businessmen and women and leaders across industry and leaders across really all sectors, from athletes to coaches and everything in between.”

America, you cannot say you were not warned.

If eight years of a Clinton presidency were not enough to teach you about the slow-rolling train wreck soap opera of dazzling indifference, monumental selfishness, convoluted lies and shameless coverups, then just maybe you deserve to live with yet another monstrous mistake.

Lady Hillary Clinton’s orchestration of a sprawling and fantastically dishonest cover-up of the terrorist attack on her State Department consulate in Benghazi on the anniversary of 9/11 is a clear reminder of just how totally indifferent the Clintons are when it comes to their responsibility to the voters they serve, the people they command and the country they represent.

It is only when — due to their own ineptitude and recklessness — they find their own personal fannies in a pinch that they become truly engaged. And then they become supreme maestros of fantastic coverups designed to skirt (no pun intended, Bubba) their own responsibility and lay waste to anyone and everyone who dares to pursue the truth or question the Clintons or their motives.

Gregory Hicks, deputy chief of mission in Tripoli at the time of the organized terrorist attack in Benghazi, watched in horror as the Clinton machine kicked into hyper-speed whitewashing the attack in which four Americans were killed.

“My jaw hit the floor as I watched this,” Hicks told House investigators, describing UN Ambassador Susan Rice’s wall-to-wall appearances on Sunday political shows.

House Benghazi Report Slams Administration Response to Attacks

Breaking News:  House Panel Investigating Benghazi Attacks in which 4 Americans were killed faults Obama Administration Response—-Finds Clinton knowingly mislead public

A damning report authored by the Republican-led House committee probing the Benghazi terror attacks faulted the Obama administration for a range of missteps before, during and after the fatal 2012 attacks – saying top administration officials huddled to craft their public response while military assets waited hours to deploy to Libya.

The report released Tuesday pointedly blamed a “rusty bureaucratic process” for the slow-moving response the night of the attack. The report said despite orders from President Obama and then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta to deploy, the first military force did not do so until more than 13 hours after the attack started.

The report said one anti-terrorism security team known as the FAST unit sat waiting for three hours in Rota, Spain, as Marines changed “in and out of their uniforms four times,” and even debated whether they should carry personal weapons, according to one witness. All together, the report said, “it would take nearly 18 hours” for that team to move.

Only Thing Transparent About Hillary is Her Dishonesty

By: Post Editorial Board

Buried by last week’s Brexit furor was fresh news of Hillary Clinton’s efforts to cover up her abuses of power at the State Department. Two distinct Associated Press scoops show her concealing evidence.

One is just a single email that she chose not to hand over in her supposedly complete dump of her work correspondence. It’s far from the first one recovered from other sources, but it’s telling because she opted to delete just the one email in a long exchange with top aide Huma Abedin.

And because it’s a clear acknowledgment that Clinton’s reliance on her homebrew server posed risks.

It was November 2010, and Abedin had urged the secretary to get onto the state.gov email system or look at “releasing your email address to the department” because State’s spam filter was blocking messages from clintonemail.com.

No, came Clinton’s reply: “Let’s get separate address or device but I don’t want any risk of the personal being accessible” — almost certainly meaning, accessible to Freedom of Information Act requests.

And it directly contradicts her repeated claims that she relied on the private account purely to avoid having to use more than one device.

Obama’s credibility takes a beating after Brexit vote

By Daniel Halper

President Obama ate a serving of humble pie Friday after Britain ignored his advice and voted to leave the European Union.

“Yesterday’s vote speaks to the ongoing changes and challenges raised by globalization,” Obama said while attending a tech conference in Silicon Valley.

“The world has shrunk. It is interconnected . . . It promises to bring extraordinary benefits, but it also has challenges,” Obama said.

One of those challenges is to the president’s credibility, which is taking a beating after he heavily advocated for the Brits to remain in the EU.

Conor McCann, a Dublin-based political-affairs analyst, wondered if Obama’s lost Europe.

“Obama, with his great status in Europe — if he couldn’t sway it, it’s an indication things have changed,” McCann told Bloomberg News.

In April, Obama traveled to the UK in part to advocate that it remain in the EU. He even threatened the UK directly, saying it would have to go to the “back of the queue” in trade negotiations with the United States because the EU is so much bigger.

Top IT official: Disabling security for Clinton server laid out ‘welcome mat’ for hackers

A 2010 decision temporarily disabling State Department security features to accommodate Hillary Clinton’s private server effectively laid out a “welcome mat” for hackers and foreign intelligence services, a leading IT official who oversaw computer security at the Defense Intelligence Agency told Fox News.

“You’re putting not just the Clinton server at risk but the entire Department of State emails at risk,” said Bob Gourley, former chief technology officer (CTO) for the DIA. “When you turn off your defensive mechanisms and you’re connected to the Internet, you’re almost laying out the welcome mat for anyone to intrude and attack and steal your secrets.”

He was referring to revelations from new court-released documents in a lawsuit by conservative watchdog Judicial Watch. They show the State Department temporarily turned off security features in 2010 so that emails from then-Secretary of State Clinton’s personal server would stop going to the department’s spam folders.

Gourley, who has more than two decades of cybersecurity experience and is now a partner with strategic consulting and engineering firm Cognitio, noted the Russians did breach the State Department system at some point – though it’s unclear when, and whether disabling the security functions in 2010 played a role.

He said, though, that when the Russian presence was detected in 2014, there were indications “they had been there for quite a while … [and] also hacked into unclassified systems in the White House.” He said the Russians would have tried “everything possible to get in.”

Gourley said: “A professionally run system is going to keep their defenses up all the time to at least make it hard on them.”

The curse of Hillaryism: In a change election, Clinton is asking voters to choose more of the same

Hillary

By: Charles Krauthammer

“I believe in an America always moving toward the future.”

This was not the most important line in Clinton’s Ohio economic policy speech on Tuesday, only the most amazing. Surely there cannot be a more vacuous, meaningless piece of political rhetoric. Every terrestrial entity from nematode to the United States of America moves forward into the future quite on its own, thank you. Where else is there to go?

To be fair, however, spouting emptiness is tempting when you have the impossible task of running as the de facto incumbent in a ragingly “change” year. Clinton is trapped by circumstance. She’s the status quo candidate, Barack Obama’s heir, running essentially on more of the same when, after two terms and glaring failures both at home and abroad, Americans are hardly clamoring for four more years.

Historically speaking, they almost invariably do not. Which is why for the last 60 years, with only one exception, whenever one party has held the White House for two terms, it’s been unceremoniously turned out. (Exception: 1988, when Ronald Reagan was rewarded with a third term to be served by George H.W. Bush.)

How little does Clinton have to offer? In her recent speeches, amid paragraph upon paragraph of attacks on Donald Trump, she lists the usual “investments” in clean energy and small business, in school construction and the power grid, and of course more infrastructure.

That’s about as tired a cliché as taking the country into the future. Ever heard a candidate come out against infrastructure? Even Trump waxes poetic about the roads and bridges he will rebuild, plus erecting that beautiful wall.

Haven’t we been here before? All those shovel-ready infrastructure projects to be funded by Obama’s $830 billion stimulus? Where did the money go? Yet the one area of agreement among all candidates of all parties is that our infrastructure is crumbling still.
