Today seems to be a day to present select videos rather than to bloviate. Pat Smith, still waiting for answers from Hillary Clinton and still thankfully being a thorn in that mendacious woman’s side:
Someday, perhaps, Ms. Smith will see justice. God rest her son’s soul, as well as the souls of his colleagues. May she eventually find peace. Our hearts are with her.
We’re hearing that a small part of Melania Trump’s speech last night bore some resemblance to certain words spoken by Michelle Obama in 2008. But in her own speech, Ms. Obama spoke words from Saul Alinsky, but attributed them, not to Alinsky, but to her husband:
Barack stood up that day, and spoke words that have stayed with me ever since. He talked about “The world as it is” and “The world as it should be.”
Guess she didn’t read Alinsky’s book. Guess also that Barack didn’t tell her he didn’t write those words.
Teachers use software to root out plagiarism. If you run the speeches of both Obamas through that software, you’ll probably turn up some plagiarism. It’s a habit with that administration.
Without that plagiarism-finding software, I noticed a similarity between the ending of Ms. Obama’s 2008 speech and the ending of the second inaugural address of Abraham Lincoln.
Ms. Obama: “… let us devote ourselves to finishing their work …”
Lincoln: “… let us strive on to finish the work …”
Ms. Trump is said to have written her own speech, but with help from speechwriters. Putting aside the possibility that hired writers (stealth Democrats or GOPe plants) may have deliberately sandbagged the lady, it’s interesting to note that the media seem to have missed this other more blatant act of plagiarism by an actual candidate for office:
The media also seem to have missed this:
I like it! I like Melania Trump, too.
