Judith Miller joined the panel on Maria Bartiromo's Sunday Morning Futures, on the Fox "News" network. She appeared with chess champion and President of the Human Rights Foundation, Gary Kasparov and Jim Grant of Grant's Interest Rate Observer. Mr. Grant's purpose today is to inform us of the Clinton's financial worth (roughly $50 million). Because the philanthropic couple has money, this undoubtedly means that they can't possibly understand income inequality. Kasparov used his time later in the show to denounce Putin, despite the GOP's love affair with the Russian President.

Maria began the segment with the enabler of the Bush Crime Family, and "Pulitzer Prize Winner," Judy Miller. She asked her what she thinks is Hillary's biggest challenge.

I think that she's going to have a huge problem overcoming the bubble factor, not the Bubba factor, she's been just coddled for so long by the media, she's been such a star. How to reconnect with voters, this is not an easy task, it's really not, as well known as she is, she seems removed, she seems to play by different rules than any one else, as seen with the email "scandal." This is not what you want going into a campaign. Can she get out of this? She's a superb veteran, I bet she will, it will not be a coronation, not at all.

This 'journalist' still stands by her fallacious claim that no one made her write the NY Times article which helped her war criminal buddies launch the disastrous Iraq invasion. She made these claims as recently as earlier this month.

Miller writes that both she and the Bush team acted in good faith out of an honest belief that Hussein had a functioning WMD program based on faulty intelligence and misleading sourcing. US soldiers who began to search the country after the March 2003 invasion of Baghdad discovered that no such program existed.

“No senior official spoon-fed me a line about WMD,” Miller writes in the Journal. “... The CIA repeatedly assured President Bush that Saddam Hussein still had WMD. Foreign intelligence agencies, even those whose nations opposed war, shared this view. And so did Congress.”

In arguing that Bush was a victim of faulty intelligence analysis, Miller ignores extensive reporting showing that the Bush administration was making plans for an Iraq invasion before the advent of intelligence used to justify it.

Many unsuspecting readers believed what she reported, damaging the iconic newspaper's credibility ad infinitum.

Miller has jumped into the welcoming arms of the Republican warmongerers at Fox News, so she no longer has to pretend to be a journalist. She continued assailing the biggest threat to the GOP nominee.

Fatigue is the big problem, people think they know her, she's been around forever, they're tired of her and the campaign has just begun.

Bartiromo falsely asserts again that there are different rules for the Clintons because of the email non-scandal. I think we are a little more tired of liars who can't stop praising the Bush/Cheney Administration than we are of the distinguished former Secretary of State and N.Y. Senator. Surprisingly, no one brought up the other GOP obsession, Benghazi. There's a one faux scandal at a time quota at Fox "News."
