Hillary Clinton's upcoming book: Make way for the pity party

- The Washington Times

Hillary Clinton, of "I Should've Won the White House!" fame, apparently isn't content to deliver 10- and 20-second talking points from her national podium about the dang Russians who worked with President Donald Trump to give him that presidential title. She's gotta write a book about it, too.

Psychiatrists agree: It's OK to smear Trump

- The Washington Times

A noted psychiatrists' association put out a memo to members to suggest it's quite OK for them to publicly comment on President Donald Trump's mental state -- the heck with a longstanding "Goldwater rule" prohibiting such opining. And the circle of sharks about Trump's White House grows wider.

Human microchips -- coming to Wisconsin company near you

- The Washington Times

A Wisconsin company is asking employees if they want to get a microchip implanted in their hands, in the space between the thumb and forefinger. Welcome to the next era -- a creepier, more intrusive, less private era where the lines between constitutional and not grow fuzzy and the opportunity for unintended consequences to grow seems unlimited.

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, speaks to reporters in reaction to news that Donald Trump Jr. revealed emails that show him discussing plans to hear damaging information on Hillary Clinton, and that the Russian government was behind the information on Clinton, his father's opponent in the presidential election, on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, July 11, 2017.

And they're off -- that's the tenor of Monday's politics, as Jared Kushner headed to the Senate Intelligence Committee to testify that he did not collude with Russia to sway U.S. elections. And everybody's got an opinion -- but the most surprising so far is from Sen. Chuck Schumer.

Jeb Bush rallies Republicans to scold Trump on Russia

- The Washington Times

Jeb Bush, former Florida governor, former presidential hopeful and former loud critic of President Donald Trump, has stepped back into the political arena to call out his fellow Republicans as hypocrites -- for not publicly condemning Trump.

Scaramucci, you go: Fire the leakers

Anthony Scaramucci, new White House communications director, apparently ain't playing. When asked by CBS "Face the Nation" host John Dickerson what would happen to leakers and whistleblowers under Scaramucci's watch, the newbie fired off this reply: "They're going to get fired." Good.

John McCain: In cancer, he unites

- The Washington Times

Now, even those who can't stand his politics -- who've fought him tooth and nail over policy, legislation, RINO-ism and globalism -- wish him well, hope for the best and send him prayers. This is how God works: through struggles, a light.
