NY Times' Dishonest Attack on Clarence Thomas

Alex Griswold, Mediaite
The New York Times had quite the bombshell Friday with a piece alleging that conservative Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has a habit of simply borrowing the language of briefs submitted to the Court, rather than coming up with his own ideas.Here’s the lede paragraphs to the piece, written by Adam Liptak and entitled "Clarence Thomas, a Supreme Court Justice of Few Words, Some Not His Own."Justice Clarence Thomas has not asked a question from the Supreme Court bench since 2006.

Hillary's Emails: How The Russians, The Chinese . . . And The White House, Have Benefited

The past couple of weeks have seen a steady drip drip drip of stories about Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server for official business as Secretary of State, and a steady stream of revelations, each of which further undermine her claims that she did not mishandle classified information and which undermine her veracity in general. Hillary’s comments at her Friday press conference just repeated the behavioral patterns that the Clintons have long been known for - a non-apology apology and carefully parsed denials that do nothing to dispel the broadly-held view that this scandal is merely further evidence, if any were needed after nearly a quarter century of seeing Hillary’s pattern of behavior in public life, that Hillary (like her husband) has a pronounced penchant for dishonesty and dislikes playing by everyone else’s rules. Despite her campaign’s near desperate attempts to spin the story in as favorable a light as possible, a skill set that the Clintons, and all those surrounding the Clintons, have mastered along ago, it appears increasingly likely that Donald Trump’s statement during the GOP primary debate is right - that Hillary is not likely to be the Democratic nominee, conventional wisdom notwithstanding. The scandal has reminded everyone that the Clintons’ proclivity for dishonesty colors everything they do. And without going into all of the legal details, it also appears that David Kendall and Huma Abedin, and possibly others in Hillary’s inner circle, in all likelihood also violated federal law related to the handling of classified materials.
