QOTD: "We’re hearing the first hints, some of them not so subtle, that the FBI is investigating more than a security situation, defined as a simple matter of learning whether classified information leaked from the State Department when she was the secretary of State, and if so, who it was leaked to. National Public Radio, which usually feeds only the bluebirds of Democratic happiness, reports that it learned from “two lawyers familiar with the inquiry” that a formal criminal investigation is under consideration, presumably at the Justice Department, and it could happen “soon.”

Hillary might not be the first target. She can always find somebody else to throw under the bus or feed to the alligators.

The lady has been saying for weeks that nothing on her email server was classified, and recently she revised and extended that to “nothing was classified at the time it was put it on the server.” Now she revises and extends still further, arguing that the security classifications are confusing and subject to interpretation. “She was at worst a passive recipient of unwitting information that subsequently became classified,” a spokesman “splains.” This may be the first time in her life that Hillary, who has been called many things, has been called “passive.”" --Wesley Pruden

Jon Stewart has retired. Why is John Oliver getting a free pass? Have you seen his last few programs?

Two weeks ago, John Oliver took on Televangelism. No, it's not 1988, It's 2015. Televangelism! Not the Federal Reserve, now that the stock market is crumbling. Not the Trans-Pacific Parnership, now being negotiated. Not the forced vaccination laws of California and Rhode Island,and not the holistic doctors that are being murdered, possibly by Big Pharma. Not immigration and anchor babies, as Donald Trump and Mark Levin have taken on the MSM. Not Windows 10, where you have to sign a release that allows you to be spied on. Not Planned Parenthood, with the horrifying videos that the entire public (not just a handful of us) needs to see.

John Oliver's burning issue was televangelism.

This week, it's LBGT rights. Oliver already discussed gay marriage recently, and Oliver also discussed sex education this month. (He wants standardized government sex education.)

Oliver joked that the Christian baker from Colorado puts sperm in his wedding cakes. Oliver said that he wrote to the Republican presidential candidates on Thursday and only one replied for his Sunday show. (I've written to politicians and government agencies and have waited 25 years for replies.) Oliver says that we need a sweeping Big Government law to protect us once again; state laws aren't good enough.

John Oliver has done a lot of outstanding work on many issues--civil forfeiture, for example. However, it's clear that his show has an agenda. The disgusting "jokes" in the last video need to responded to. Take a look for yourself.

If someone would handle the technical aspects, I'd do the "Last Week Tonight-Counterpoint" videos myself.

"LGBT"-- sorry for the typo. See this, from Twitter:

Generally, I find John Oliver's humor ranging from enjoyable and pointed to "meh". His "masturbating baker" joke actually annoyed me.
