The Buck starts here

Fox News recently listed 40+ reasons Hillary has given as to why she lost the election. In summary, It was anyone’s fault but her’s.

Peggy Noonan at the Wall Street Journal doesn’t agree:

Hillary Lacks the Remorse of Conscience

“But wow. Her [Hillary’s] public statements since defeat have been malignant little masterpieces of victimhood-claiming, blame-shifting and unhelpful accusation. They deserve censure.” ……..

“What is true is that throughout her career Mrs. Clinton has shown herself to be largely incapable of honest self-reflection, of pointing the finger, for even a moment, at herself. She is not capable of what in Middle English was called ‘agenbite of inwit’—remorse of conscience, the self-indictment and implicit growth, that come of taking a serious personal inventory. People are always doing bad things to her, she never does bad things to them. They operate in bad faith, she only in good. They lie and exaggerate, she doesn’t. They are low and partisan, not her. There’s no vast left-wing conspiracy only a right-wing one.”

“People can see this. It’s part of why she lost.”

Elephant in the Islamic living room

I was watching an old episode of the “West Wing” the other day. While speaking to a gathering of high school kids, Sam Seaborne made the following comparison of Islamic extremism to mainstream Islam: He said, “Islamic extremism is to Islam as the Ku Klux Klan is to Christianity.”

While that’s essentially true, speaking out against the maniacal murderers that makeup Islamic extremist groups can be worth one’s life. And that’s why the comments an English Muslim woman made after the Manchester terrorist attack were so remarkable and courageous.

British Muslim Woman Gets Real on National TV: ‘Terrorism Is…Being Imported Right Under Our Noses’

A British Muslim woman drew applause from her fellow audience members when she said during a BBC talk show that all Saudi-financed mosques in England should be temporarily shut down — and then added that “terrorism is also being imported right under our noses.”

The woman’s comments during BBC Question Time on Thursday came just days after a deadly terrorist attack took at least 22 lives outside a Manchester concert hall and for which the Islamic State has claimed responsibility.

“I am a British Muslim, and I am very proud of my heritage, but I am also a realist and there is an elephant in the room here and unfortunately … there is an issue with regards to radicalization and extremism that does exist within our community,” the woman said, adding that it’s something “we have to deal with.”

Collateral damage

6-year-old Lennox is acceptable collateral damage to sanctuary city administrators and judges, and it’s just too high a price to pay so that a few liberal left-wing politicians and functionaries can feel good about themselves and their policies that protect illegals ahead of our legitimate citizens.

This is the sort of crime that sanctuary cities go out of their way to protect. And these are the innocents who pay the price for sanctuary cities policies that put illegal aliens ahead of Americans.

Catholic Church back in the (crime) news

In its endeavor to remain current with the times, the Catholic Church has upped the ante from pedophilia to murder.

Decades after a nun was slain, police exhume a priest’s body. This cold case is Netflix’s latest mystery.*

The body of a Catholic priest from Baltimore, whose sexual assaults on teenage girls in the 1960s and 1970s caused the Archdiocese of Baltimore to pay out a dozen settlements last year, has been exhumed by Baltimore County police still trying to solve the 1969 slaying of Sister Catherine Ann Cesnik, police said Thursday.

Madam Pelosi in the middle of under-age prostitution scandal

Queen Pelosi really stepped in it this time.

Democrats have entirely relinquished whatever tiny piece of the moral high-ground they may have achieved by accepting campaign donations from pimps.

We’ll likely hear little about it from MSM liberal sycophants, since the Democrats’ whore-house-cash-cow closed down last January.

Nancy Pelosi Just Got Caught Up in a Major Scandal and It’s Blowing Up in Her Face

“Democrats believe they are on track to score a major victory in the 2018 midterms.

They are counting on big money donors to fuel a political wave that will sweep them into power.

However, it’s been revealed that the Nancy Pelosi affiliated House Majority PAC accepted donations from someone who is co-owner of a website alleged to be involved in child prostitution.”

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

“A political action committee that is backed by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) took funds from the co-owner of a website that is linked to underage prostitution.

“The House Majority PAC, an Alexandria, Virginia-based Super PAC created in 2011 to “answer the barrage of GOP outside spending” and help Democrats regain seats in the House of Representatives, accepted a $10,000 contribution last year from James Larkin, the co-owner of the Backpage.com, a website linked to underage trafficking and prostitution.”

Arrest of CEO and corporate officers

“On October 6, 2016, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and California Attorney General Kamala Harris announced that Texas authorities had raided the Dallas headquarters of Backpage.com and arrested CEO Carl Ferrer at the George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston on felony charges of pimping a minor, pimping, and conspiracy to commit pimping. The California arrest warrant alleged that 99% of Backpage’s revenue was directly attributable to prostitution-related ads, and many of the ads involved victims of sex trafficking, including children under the age of 18. The State of Texas was also considering a money laundering charge pending its investigation. Arrest warrants were also issued against former Backpage owners and founders Michael Lacey and James Larkin. Lacey and Larkin were charged with conspiracy to commit pimping.”
