Hillary Clinton is one of those people who should have resolved a long time ago never to lie. She's absolutely awful at it. Aside from violating the Federal Records Act, there's also the question of National Security. Unless Mrs. Clinton spent a great deal of money encrypting her private server to government standards, her illegal account was an open invitation to foreign governments or even private hackers to gain access to her account and spy on what she insists were 'mostly private e-mails' that had nothing to do with government affairs, something I think we all pretty much know is horse manure.
No matter how you slice it, this is a gross violation of federal law, something Hillary Clinton had full knowledge of when she did it.
Me, I still want to know what happened to that $6 billion in State Department funding that mysteriously 'disappeared' while she was Secretary of State, and about those mysterious donations from foreign countries like Algeria to the Clinton Foundation.
Welcome to the Watcher's Council, a blogging group consisting of some of the most incisive blogs in the 'sphere, and the longest running group of its kind in existence. Every week, the members nominate two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council.Then we vote on the best two posts, with the results appearing on Friday morning.
This week, Simply Jews, Seraphic Secret, Maggie's Notebook and The Gates of Vienna earned honorable mention status with some great articles.
You can, too! Want to see your work appear on the Watcher’s Council homepage in our weekly contest listing? Didn’t get nominated by a Council member? No worries.
To bring something to my attention, simply head over to Joshuapundit and post the title and a link to the piece you want considered along with an e-mail address (mandatory, but of course it won't be published) in the comments section no later than Monday 6PM PST in order to be considered for our honorable mention category. Then return the favor by creating a post on your site linking to the Watcher’s Council contest for the week when it comes out on Wednesday morning
It's a great way of exposing your best work to Watcher’s Council readers and Council members while grabbing the increased traffic and notoriety. And how good is that, eh?
