München Madness Update: Lone Gunman? Son of Iranian immigrants...

Who is responsible for this shooting in Munich? Is it Islamists or not?  As AoSHQ notes, there are mixed reportsOne of the shooters committed suicide. It appears to be a coordinated terror attack with three shooters. It is not far from where that Muslim Afghan "migrant" assaulted train passengers with an ax.

Ivanka and Donald Trump Finale to the GOP Convention

Ivanka was exceptionally well spoken. Ivanka is a real talent. For those who saw it, her introduction had to help her father a lot.


Don Surber: Ivanka's speech more important than her father's (I concur with that assessment)

Victory Girls: Ivanka wins the night (in a $138 dress from her own label, that's a nice touch) More here from Trooper York at Lem's Place.

As for Donald Trump's speech, I thought it was solid. It spoke mostly to his base, and I am pretty sure to that extent it was effective. Trump tried to reach out to black and gay voters.  I doubt one speech will do that, but it's a start.

I doubt this speech will change the minds of many #NeverTrumpers or dedicated Hillary supporters, but to undecided it might resonate. I also suspect his attacks on Hillary are leaving a mark.

I praised CNN for being fair earlier this week. I noticed the tone got way more critical of Donald Trump post his speech tonight.  Was that justified or just over reaction to the fear Trump gained some traction tonight?  Van Jones was especially critical. It was a marked change. From what I saw, it was intentional.
