CNBC: Hillary is the favorite among millionaire voters
Via Drudge. I guess we can shelve that perception the GOP is the party of the rich, huh Dems? [rdbrewer]

Quinnipiac: Walker Leading in Iowa
By 9 points at 21 percent. Jeb is at 5 percent. Via Drudge. [rdbrewer]

Peter Cook (Slublog): The Left Brings The Culture War To Boxing
"Upon their recent boxing match, the Left proclaimed Floyd Mayweather’s girlfriend-beating equal to Manny Pacquiao’s public speaking. It’s part of a bigger strategy." [rdbrewer]
I'm about to totally mind-screw you and you won't be the same for the rest of the day. Courtesy of Jeff, this entirely new brand of cray-cray. Some people just don't know how to win graciously. - NDH
"Clinton Cash" by Peter Schweizer: a brief review. Got it today, read it all the way through -- it's a lot worse (for the Clintons) than what you've seen in the media so far. I'd like to think that this would kill Hillary's candidacy, but the Dems have no real alternative and the Clintons (with cause) don't believe normal rules apply to them. [Fritzworth]

Sonny Bunch: Subjecting free speech to the assassin’s veto
"[W]e make the world a more dangerous place each time we cede a sliver of speech to killers." [rdbrewer]

Patrick Pool: EXCLUSIVE: FBI, DHS Assessed Terror Attack Threat to Texas ‘Draw Muhammad’ Contest as ‘UNLIKELY’
Via @EdDriscoll. [rdbrewer]

Fox News: EMP threat to the electrical grid is 'the greatest threat' our nation faces
Not only from a nuclear blast (electromagnetic pulse, "EMP"), but also a large solar flare (coronal mass ejection, "CME"). And the cost of installing surge protectors (resistors) in transformer ground connections is relatively cheap, about two-billion dollars, according to the expert at the link--or it would cost customers about twenty cents per home per month, according to James Woolsey. (I think it would cost less than both figures, FWIW. I mean, resistors, yo.) Imagine having no electricity for a year. More from WSJ. [rdbrewer]

Forgotten 60's mystery click
A nice practical joke dedication for militant feminists. [rdbrewer]

Ashe Schow: Lawsuit spells out 'nightmare' for California man accused without evidence
"Judge Margaret Morrow dismissed his claim based on prosecutors' arguments that they enjoy absolute immunity...." Absolute immunity for prosecutors is something created by judges, not statutory law, and it's obviously a flawed notion. Glenn Reynolds talked about it here. More from Paul Jossey at The Federalist. Some legislatures like this one are looking to limit it. [rdbrewer]

Ken White: Unusually Stupid McClatchy Column Gets Free Speech Wrong
"I expected that in the wake of the attempted terrorist assault on a 'draw Muhammad' event in Texas, people would write dumb things about speech. American journalists have not disappointed me." [rdbrewer]

Jim Geraghty, Morning Jolt: Bill Clinton Stretches His Old Lying Muscles
"Bill Clinton declared, 'There’s one set of rules for us and another set for everybody else' and actually believes he and his wife are held up to harder scrutiny and tougher rules than everyone else." [rdbrewer]

NBC Anchor: Geller Caused Texas Shooting Herself, by Setting Muslim ‘Mousetrap’ [rdbrewer]

Mitchell Blatt: Hamas Can Promote Genocide But Don’t Quote Them
"New York City bus ads quote a Hamas music video that calls killing Jews ‘worship.’ Outrage ensues, but not against Hamas." They've decided not to think about Hamas in a negative way, and they don't like being reminded of facts that challenge their perception. [rdbrewer]

Michael T. Hamilton: How The Iran Bill Weakens Senate Oversight While Trying To Preserve It
"If the Corker-Menendez bill passes as is, the president could execute the same weak Iran agreement that he was going to enter unilaterally—while now claiming legitimacy." [rdbrewer]

Jon Gabriel: Feminists Chase Avengers Director off Twitter
SJW's chased Joss Whedon off twitter. [rdbrewer]
Fox News Alert: Fox News team witnesses "protester" being shot by Baltimore police; he reached into his pants, and there is currently a "beat up old" revolver lying on the street where he had been shot down.
Meanwhile, other "protesters" are claiming this was murder because that's what they do
POLICE: Reports that the man was shot are "not true." This possibly agrees with what were apparently conflicting reports: The police saying the man's gun was dropped and fired when it hit the ground, and a reporter's report that only a single shot rang out... it appears likely that the police did not in fact shoot him.
But we got to see Baltimore "protesters" spin false claims in real time.
Military Strategy: What are the optimal siege tactics for taking Magic Kingdom's Cinderella Castle? "***Secondary Objective: While in Fantasyland we will have the opportunity to take down the menace of all parents everywhere. The "It's a Small World" ride will be within our reach. Our secondary objective is to eliminate the ride with extreme prejudice. This isn't a capture mission like the castle, but one of complete annihilation. Expect heavy casualties as their adorable repetitiveness burns into your skulls like white phosphorous in the jungle. Our sacrifices will be great, but our suffering is in the name of protecting others." [Weirddave]
