  2. Great article. Bonhoeffer is one of my heroes of the faith – and I think the author nailed Hillary quite well. When someone who consistently lies suddenly tells the truth, it’s wise to look for the motives behind it.

  3. Speaking of congenital liars

    Mr. Clinton …pledged to make public future donors [to his foundation] if Mrs. Clinton was elected president. While disclosure is not legally required, failure to do so, Mr. Clinton said, would raise “all these questions about whether people would try to win favor with her by giving money to me.”

    Even so, past donors should remain private, he insisted, “unless there is some conflict of which I am aware, and there is not.”

    Lie down with dogs, you’re gonna get fleas.
