We Have One Day in Which to Decide America’s Future: Who Do You Trust With It?

Money and corruption are ruining the land, crooked politicians betray the working man, pocketing the profits and treating us like sheep, and we’re tired of hearing promises that we know they’ll never keep. – Ray Davies

Tomorrow, Americans will choose the person who will lead our country for the next four years. That journey will either be one which will restore the luster of “The Shining City on a Hill” or complete its transformation into the Socialist Utopia of a Third World Barrio.

That being said, the question that I have for you today, boys and girls, is

Who do you trust?

KAKE, an ABC Affiliate relates the following report from CNN…

STERLING HEIGHTS, Michigan (CNN) — Donald Trump urged voters Sunday to “deliver justice at the ballot box” on Election Day, hours after the FBI announced that its review of newly discovered emails did not change its earlier conclusion to not recommend charges against Hillary Clinton.

Trump, speaking at a rally here, did not directly refer to FBI Director James Comey’s announcement. But his remarks amounted to his first public response to the decision, and the Republican nominee argued that Clinton is “guilty” of federal crimes and said a “rigged” system was protecting Clinton.

“Hillary Clinton is guilty. She knows it, the FBI knows it, the people know it, and now it’s up to the American people to deliver justice at the ballot box on November 8,” Trump said. “Unbelievable. Unbelievable how she gets away with it.”

Trump also cast doubt on Comey’s conclusions, just over a week after the Republican nominee praised the FBI director for announcing the review of the emails, which were discovered as part of the bureau’s investigation into Anthony Weiner’s sexting.

“Right now, she is being protected by a rigged system. It’s a totally rigged system. You can’t review 650,000 emails in eight days. You can’t do it folks,” Trump said, mischaracterizing the number of emails the FBI was reviewing for connections into the private server Clinton used as secretary of state.

The FBI took custody of electronic devices containing 650,000 emails in its investigation into Weiner, the estranged husband of Clinton aide Huma Abedin, but identified a smaller subset of those emails as linked to Clinton.

The FBI announced Sunday that its review of those emails had not changed the conclusions it reached over the summer, when Comey recommended no charges be filed after a year-long investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server, even though he called her handling of classified information “extremely careless.”

Still, even as the FBI cleared Clinton for the second time, Trump argued that “the investigations into her crimes will go on for a long time.”

“The rank-and-file special agents at the FBI won’t let her get away with her terrible crimes,” Trump said.

Trump served up his first response to the FBI’s announcement on Sunday before a packed and rowdy crowd of supporters at an amphitheater in this Detroit suburb, where supporters cheered loudly and belted a raucous cry of “Lock her up! Lock her up!” as Trump addressed his rival’s email controversy.

Trump will return to Michigan — which hasn’t voted for a Republican presidential nominee since 1988 — once more before voters head to the polls on Tuesday, holding his final campaign rally in the state on Monday night.

Trump is trailing in the polls here, but advisers to the billionaire’s campaign have argued that they see an opening to make inroads.

Former President Bill Clinton stumped in the state on Sunday as Democrats look to protect the state from falling in the Republican column, and the Democratic nominee herself will also hold a rally in Michigan on Monday.

What Americans have witnessed during the FBI’s lackadaisical investigation of Hillary Clinton’s Scandal, known as E-mailgate, is an unequal application of the rule of law as applies to Professional Politicians in general and, in this case, specifically, a former member of the Obama Administration.

Recently, the CBS Morning News presented a poll in which 60% of Americans believed that Clinton lied about her mishandling of emails containing top secret information which could have potentially put the lives of our military and covert operatives at risk.

Now, that was a CBS poll, which of course is weighted heavily in favor of Liberals, so you can imagine how folks like you and me out here in Flyover Country feel about the situation.

Our government was never meant to be a feudal system. America remains a Constitutional Republic.

American  Politicians were never meant to be Lords, who would remain in power in perpetuity. Our Founding Fathers envisioned Citizen Statesman, who after serving their country and their communities for a short period of time, would return to their homes, to their families, and to their trades.

What has happened during the investigation of this breach of our National Security is a prime example of why our Founders set up the System of Checks and Balances that they did when they were constructing our system of government.

Obama, the Department of Justice, and the Clintons circumvented that system with a series of maneuvers carried out between the White House, the Campaign Staff, and a private jet idling on a Tarmac at an airport.

Simply put, Hillary Rodham Clinton cannot be trusted with the Office of the Presidency of the United States of America.

On Jan. 8, 1996, in a still-relevant commentary titled“Blizzard of Lies,” New York Times columnist William Safire described Hillary Clinton as “a congenital liar.”

Americans of all political persuasions are coming to the sad realization that our First Lady — a woman of undoubted talents who was a role model for many in her generation — is a congenital liar. Drip by drip, like Whitewater torture, the case is being made that she is compelled to mislead, and to ensnare her subordinates and friends in a web of deceit.

1. Remember the story she told about studying The Wall Street Journal to explain her 10,000 percent profit in 1979 commodity trading? We now know that was a lie told to turn aside accusations that as the Governor’s wife she profited corruptly, her account being run by a lawyer for state poultry interests through a disreputable broker.

She lied for good reason: To admit otherwise would be to confess taking, and paying taxes on, what some think amounted to a $100,000 bribe.

2. The abuse of Presidential power known as Travelgate elicited another series of lies. She induced a White House lawyer to assert flatly to investigators that Mrs. Clinton did not order the firing of White House travel aides, who were then harassed by the F.B.I. and Justice Department to justify patronage replacement by Mrs. Clinton’s cronies.

Now we know, from a memo long concealed from investigators, that there would be “hell to pay” if the furious First Lady’s desires were scorned. The career of the lawyer who transmitted Hillary’s lie to authorities is now in jeopardy. Again, she lied with good reason: to avoid being identified as a vindictive political power player who used the F.B.I. to ruin the lives of people standing in the way of juicy patronage.

3. In the aftermath of the apparent suicide of her former partner and closest confidant, White House Deputy Counsel Vincent Foster, she ordered the overturn of an agreement to allow the Justice Department to examine the files in the dead man’s office. Her closest friends and aides, under oath, have been blatantly disremembering this likely obstruction of justice, and may have to pay for supporting Hillary’s lie with jail terms.

Again, the lying was not irrational. Investigators believe that damning records from the Rose Law Firm, wrongfully kept in Vincent Foster’s White House office, were spirited out in the dead of night and hidden from the law for two years — in Hillary’s closet, in Web Hubbell’s basement before his felony conviction, in the President’s secretary’s personal files — before some were forced out last week.

Why the White House concealment? For good reason: The records show Hillary Clinton was lying when she denied actively representing a criminal enterprise known as the Madison S.& L., and indicate she may have conspired with Web Hubbell’s father-in-law to make a sham land deal that cost taxpayers $3 million.

Why the belated release of some of the incriminating evidence? Not because it mysteriously turned up in offices previously searched. Certainly not because Hillary Clinton and her new hang-tough White House counsel want to respond fully to lawful subpoenas.

One reason for the Friday-night dribble of evidence from the White House is the discovery by the F.B.I. of copies of some of those records elsewhere. When Clinton witnesses are asked about specific items in “lost” records — which investigators have — the White House “finds” its copy and releases it. By concealing the Madison billing records two days beyond the statute of limitations, Hillary evaded a civil suit by bamboozled bank regulators.

Another reason for recent revelations is the imminent turning of former aides and partners of Hillary against her; they were willing to cover her lying when it advanced their careers, but are inclined to listen to their own lawyers when faced with perjury indictments.

Therefore, ask not “Why didn’t she just come clean at the beginning?” She had good reasons to lie; she is in the longtime habit of lying; and she has never been called to account for lying herself or in suborning lying in her aides and friends.

No wonder the President is fearful of holding a prime-time press conference. Having been separately deposed by the independent counsel at least twice, the President and First Lady would be well advised to retain separate defense counsel.

The late, great William Safire was a prophet.

Even though the Clintons have always appeared to be above the law, and skip past every scandal  like a fried egg in those Teflon Skillet commercials, with this November’s Presidential Election, an example must be set, so that the America’s secrets and the safety of our Military and Intelligence Operatives acting covertly in foreign lands, will be protected for the continued sovereignty of our nation.

A President of the United States must be trustworthy, not only for the reassurance of its citizens that they will do the right thing when a crisis occurs, but also for the assurance of our overseas allies, that we will have their backs in case of a crisis in their nation.

Americans have watched all of Clinton’s scandals…and we’re angry.

Anger has played an important part in the forging of this great country, which will be lucky to survive Obama’s final year in office.

It was anger that formed our country….an anger over being held captive to “Taxation Without Representation”…an anger which, as a prime example of history repeating itself, Americans are experiencing, even as I type this blog.

It is this anger, aimed at Professional Politicians and the Washingtonian Status has propelled Donald J. Trump and those who prefer that things remain the same, know it.

The indisputable fact of the matter is that, in “Open” Primaries, Trump did even better than he did in those primaries in which only Republicans could vote.

Americans are fed up with the Washingtonian Status Quo.

We are tired of professional politicians’ empty promises and their failure to properly address the issues facing America, in any way, except a self-serving one.

Hillary Clinton is a Professional Politician.

From the time that she spent behind the scenes of her husband’s political career in Arkansas to the days she occupied the White House as “Co-President” to her days as Senator from the State of New York to this very moment, Hillary Clinton has engaged in political activities involving corruption and downright criminality that would make Machiavelli blush.

America has endured enough duplicity and political chicanery in the last 7 years to last us for centuries. The deleterious effect of the Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama has left a stain of incompetent leadership and out-of-control political correctness which will take years to wash away.

America and the rest of the Free World cannot afford the devastating effects of a Hillary Clinton Presidency.

One Week To Go: Democrats Implement Emergency Strategy of “Desperate Hypocrisy”

November 1, 2016

weiner-surpriseLast night, as I was with friends from my church, handing out hot dogs and candy to Trick or Treaters at our Small Group Leader’s House, you can probably guess what the topic of discussion was.

Basically, what those I talked to were wondering, with a week to go before the 2016 presidential Election, was:

What is going to happen next?

It was interesting to note, that as we stood around in that average American Front Yard on the Average America Street in Northwest Mississippi, that there was not a soul there that was going to vote for Hillary Clinton.

What American, in their right mind, could?

From her disdain of average Americans to her lack of ethics and morality to her intentional endangering of American Lives through her use of Private E-mail Servers to pass Top Secret Information , Hillary Clinton has proven herself time and time again to be unfit to hold the office of President of the United States of America.

In 2016, the name Hillary Rodham Clinton has already become synonymous with the untrustworthy nature of professional politicians.

A President of the United States must be trustworthy, not only for the reassurance of its citizens that they will do the right thing when a crisis occurs, but also for the assurance of our overseas allies, that we will have their backs in case of a crisis in their nation.

Whether the revelation of “the gift” of massive quantities of Uranium to the Russians or the formation of an Iranian Connection, as a result of money given to the Clinton Foundation,  as was previously  reported in 2015, or the revelation involving “dual-staffer” Cheryl Mills, the Clinton Foundation Scandal is not just a scandal involving money and unscrupulous political ladder-climbing through the peddling of “favors”, the actions of Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State crossed the line into the abhorrent abyss of a Conflict of Interest involving possible Treason.

Time and time again, from Watergate to Travelgate to Benghazigate, and now to Emailgate and Foundationgate, Hillary Clinton has proven to be a ruthless, untrustworthy, Machiavellian professional politician, who only cares about herself and her ascension to the Presidency of the United States of America.

Even during the Mythical “Co-Presidency” of the Clintons, slovenly adored by their minions in the Democrat Party and the Main Stream Media there was, as the late, great Paul Harvey used to say, “a rest of the story”.

Bill Clinton was inaugurated as the 42nd President of the United States of America on January 20, 1993.  Standing right behind him…and pushing hard was Hillary Rodham Clinton, by now widely acknowledged to be the more-driven, and politically ambitious one of the couple.

Billed as “the New Camelot” by the Main Stream Media, the Clintons strode arm-in-arm into their castle to preside over their new kingdom, where Progressivism in the name of “Moderation” would be the Law of the Land.

However, just as the reign of Arthur and Guinevere ended badly, into the Clintons’ storybook “Co-Presidency”, “a little rain” fell in the form of scandals and quite a few “Bimbo Eruptions” which brought about an inglorious end to all of their “peace and harmony”.

The raw, unmitigated corruption involving Hillary Clinton and her Foundation, revealed over the past year, along with these new revelations contained in the material released yesterday by Julian Assange, is breath-taking in its size and scope, as more and more unscrupulous details are being revealed.

And now, with 650,000 more e-mails having been discovered on Disgraced Former Congressman and Pedophile Anthony Weiner’s personal E-mail Server, which could include not only State Secrets, but more evidence of Pay-For-Play involving the Clintons and their Foundation, it is no wonder that my friends were asking last night,

What’s next?

Well, we received our answer this morning.

As I started preparing this morning’s post, the Main Headline on The Drudge Report read,

THE LONGEST WEEK
MEDIA MELTS DOWN: DONALD AND THE RUSSIANS
DONALD AND THE TAXES [AGAIN]

The first headline refers to a story from the Daily Mail, detailing everything that is going on during this last week of campaigning before next Tuesday’s election.

The next headlines, however, are both from The Former Bastion of Professional Journalism, The New York Times, who has degenerated over the past several decades into a Propaganda Rag for the Democratic Party and their Far left Political Agenda, including the election of their Presidential Candidate, Hillary Clinton.

The story concerning Trump and the Russians was the continuation of a fable, originated by Democratic Operatives, which has yet to be proven, that somehow the Republican Presidential Candidate is working with the Russians to rig our Presidential Election.

Unfortunately for The Times, even they had to admit in the article that there is no “there” there.

The story concerning Trump’s Business Taxes has been repeated ad infinitum by Liberal Propaganda Posters from Newspapers to Facebook Political Pages, seeking to pin a Badge of Dishonesty on Trump and failing miserably in their attempts.

You see, boys and girls, the reason Trump paid minimal Federal Taxes, is because he took advantage of LEGAL TAX BREAKS offered by our Tax System.

THE SAME TAX BREAKS THAT WEALTHY LIBERALS TAKE ADVANTAGE OF.

Both stories were written and published as acts of desperation.

The Main Stream Media  positively reeks of Liberal Hypocritical Desperation.

While their Candidate, Hillary Clinton, is being proven to be more and more corrupt daily, they are still desperately searching for anything to pin on Donald Trump, to try to salvage what is now looking like a Political Tsunami next Tuesday, despite what the Democrat-weighted National Push Polls have been rigged to show.

In fact, the authors of those polls have been forced to tighten them, in order to hold onto a sliver of credibility.

Yesterday, Rush Limbaugh made the following observation on his nationally syndicated radio program…

…I’m just telling you, my considered opinion is that there are people all over this country in the Democrat Party who are literally upside down with fright and panic over what Comey did Friday. But more than that, it’s not just what Comey did.  I think the truth is that most of them know she did it.  She did something that’s not kosher.  She did something that’s wrong, and so did Obama. 

They know Obama lied about her server and when he knew about it. They know he lied about not using it. They know he made up a fake name to communicate with her on it. They know he lied about Obamacare. They know how unpopular that is.  If they’re actually telling themselves that they’re sitting at the top of the of the heap and this country cannot wait to elect Hillary Clinton, they are in a state of denial.  So we move forward to audio sound bite number nine.  Pat Caddell was on the Fox report last night on the Fox News Channel, being interviewed by Harris Faulkner.  Here’s how it went.

CADDELL:  I think we’re already seeing signs that this could be like 1980, which is the previously — and I was on the wrong side of that one — the only election which went in close and came out big because events started pushing the boat, and I believe, given the structure of attitudes against what’s been going on overall in the country, that helps.

RUSH:  Okay.  Let’s go back to 1980.  We dug up even more sound bites from 1980. Back to NBC, November 4th, election night, 1980, John Chancellor and he’s talking about Helen Thomas, ’cause they’re in a state of shock.  They expected Carter to win.  All the polls had Carter up by nine, and Reagan has won a landslide.  They announced it an hour and 10 minutes after going on the air.  At 8:10 p.m.  California still had almost two hours left to vote, three hours left to vote.  And they’d already called it a landslide, so now they’re talking about what the hell happened.

CHANCELLOR:  Well, let me tell you what Helen Thomas of the UP reported tonight.  She’s learned that the president was informed Monday night that samplings taken by pollster Pat Caddell showed it was “all over,” in those quotes.

RUSH:  Pat Caddell was Carter’s pollster, and they knew the weekend before the election that it was all over.  But Pat Caddell didn’t tell John Chancellor.  They didn’t tell anybody else.  But Helen Thomas of UPI found out about it.  And then Brokaw and Judy Woodruff discussed it but I have to take a break here.  We’ll get to them when we get back.

…RUSH: Here’s Tom Brokaw, Judy Woodruff discussing Reagan coming out of nowhere, ostensibly, and beating Jimmy Carter in 1980, and they’re referring to Pat Caddell, who says that he is beginning to sense this election has the same feel that he had in 1980 when Reagan came out of nowhere to beat Carter.  Here’s Woodruff and Brokaw.

BROKAW:  Pat Caddell was saying that it broke bad for them over the weekend, that the Iranian hostage situation was the final undoing.  They can’t believe it was only that, though, do they?

WOODRUFF:  Well, that is what Pat Caddell is saying.  I’m sure you’re aware there are other pollsters who will have other points of view on that.  I know that Bob Teeter, who has done some polling for the Republicans, has said that the trend was obvious early last week when the undecided voters started breaking toward Reagan, most of them toward Reagan and not toward Carter. 

And that was exactly what the Carter campaign had been counting on all along.  The very heavily negative Reagan speeches the president was making, the commercials on television they were running were anti-Reagan, anti-Reagan, and they hoped that that would, in the end, put the pressure on, bring the undecided voters and the Anderson supporters back to the president.  It didn’t happen.  They’ve gone to Reagan.

RUSH:  That’s why Caddell seems to feel it’s somewhat — look, nobody’s predicting 1980 is gonna take place here.  It’s just Pat Caddell was there, he’s a Carterite and he says he’s getting the same kind of feeling.  Back in 1980, with all these negative ads running in the last week against Reagan — and I remember them.  And, folks, the Democrats’ strategy hasn’t changed.  Reagan was yesterday’s racist, sexist, bigot, homophobe, no business being in politics, a B-rated movie actor.  Yeah, he was governor of California, but that didn’t count for anything.  Reagan was a slow thinking, plodding, amiable dunce kind of thing, never, ever took him seriously. 

And it dovetails with the same tactics that Hillary and the Democrats are using about Trump.  No business being in politics, this guy’s a reality TV star, hotels and casinos.  He’s got in business being in politics.  He’s a reprobate, doesn’t know what he’s doing.  And yet there are people daily now moving into the Trump camp.  So it is what it is, and nobody knows yet how this is gonna end up.  Let’s be clear and remind everybody of that again.  

So,

What’s next?

A week of out-of-control Democratic Operative Hypocritical Desperation followed by a repeat of the Presidential Election of 1980, perhaps?

Are we one week away from a fresh, new “Morning in America”?

Lord, I hope so.

Until He Comes,

Eric Erikson Calls Christian Trump Voters “Hypocrites”. This “Christian American Conservative” Rebukes Him.

October 31, 2016

untitled-110Erick Erickson is a politically conservative American blogger who hosts radio show Atlanta’s Evening News with Erick Erickson, broadcast on 750 WSB. He previously served as an editor-in-chief of the conservative political blog RedState and was a political contributor for CNN.  Now, he runs an online political magazine titled “TheResurgent.com” and appears on Fox News as a contributor.

Also, in the past, he has been privileged to be one of the Guest Hosts who fill in for the Godfather of Talk Radio, Rush Limbaugh, on his nationally syndicated radio program.

He has not had that privilege lately.

There may be a reason why.

Yesterday, Mr. Erickson tweeted the following…

The people who cheered on Comey months ago suddenly attack him. As intellectually dishonest as Christians defending Trump.

You guessed it, boys and girls.

Mr. Erickson, if you have not heard of him before, is one of those who considers themselves “TRUE Conservatives”

That’s right. he’s a #NeverTrumper.

Mr. Erickson’s generalization of “Christian American Conservatives” who are voting for Trump as “hypocrites”, got this Southern Man’s dander up…because as the sub-title on my blog states:

I AM ONE. (Praise God.)

That being said…

I believe that Trump is not as Conservative on some issues as I am. However, while I do disagree with Trump every now and then, I also believe that

  1. He genuinely loves this country and cares about the American People.
  2. He is not a Hillary Clinton plant, simply running to secure the election for her.
  3. He is not a part of the plot by the Illuminati to destroy America.

…Or, any other cockamamie “theory” that the “TRUE Conservatives” on the Internet have vomited forth about him, in order to justify their America-endangering ongoing temper tantrum, caused by Ted Cruz’s failure to win the Republican Primary.

I am a member of a Contemporary Evangelical Church, which I attend regularly, when I am not working on Sunday.

My faith is not marginal. I stand on The Solid Rock, not shifting sands.

America is a Constitutional Republic, not a Theocracy. And, as such, Americans, including the 75% of us who declare that Jesus Christ is our Personal Savior, must each make our own individual choice as to whom would best represent us as the Leader of the Free World, based upon both logic and the Spiritual Gift of Discernment.

Logic dictates that I vote for someone who will keep my family, my friends, and my country safe from the murderous barbarians that are at our gates. It also drives me to keep Hillary Clinton out of the White House as the representative of the political party whose sitting President has driven this Sovereign Nation straight down the Highway to Hell, over the last seven years.

Judging from the Republican Primaries’ outcome, and the overflowing crowds at his Campaign Rallies that the MSM, with eight days to go until Election Day, and with the possibility of a Federal indictment of Hillary Clinton looming, still refuses to acknowledge, the overwhelming majority of voters believe that candidate to be Donald J. Trump.

During the Republican Primary Season, I was called everything but “a Child of God”, simply because I wrote factual posts about Donald J. Trump and stated that I would pencil in the bubble beside his name as my choice to fill the Office of President of the United States of America.

According to “TRUE Conservatives” like Eric Erickson and the amateurish self-proclaimed “TRUE Conservative” Political Pundits who hang out on Facebook Political Pages, spamming them ad infinitum, you are not truly a Christian, nor a “True Conservative”, if you are willing to make that choice.

However, I beg to differ.

#NeverTrumpers are so consumed with their hatred for Trump and their disappointment over the results of the Republican Primary Elections, that they simply do not care was sort of damage they can do to the quest of average Americans to keep the Queen of mean, Hillary Clinton, from succeeding President Barack Hussein Obama.

Their hatred  over Trump’s political success has eradicated their rationality.

What caused the spectacular collapse of the campaign of their candidate of choice, Senator Ted Cruz, which has now led to Citizen Statesman Donald J. Trump being on the cusp of being elected our next President?

A while back, I wrote that, in the case of Senator Ted Cruz, his image of not being just another politician, was tarnished by the actions of those working for him, in regards to the political shenanigans that were being played against Donald J. Trump.

Also, instead of trying to reach out to other parts of the voting base, as Trump did, Cruz instead reached out to fellow politicians, seeking their support. However, upon reflection, I believe there is even more to the story of the collapse of the Cruz Campaign.

As I have documented before, the success of Donald J. Trump and his Campaign, is one of a visceral and palpable anger, that is presently held by Americans for Professional Politicians.

I believe that this anger has not only been caused by the blatant self-serving interests of those we have elected to serve us in Washington, DC, but also by
the realization by average Americans that our country is under attack by enemies, both foreign and domestic.

Average Americans, like you and me, love our country.

We are tired of being told by the present Administration and their Liberal Minions in the Main Stream Media, that America is “just another country”, when we have been raised to believe, by those who exemplified it, in American Exceptionalism.

Our ancestors, relatives, and friends have died in the defense of our nation and our Traditional American Values.

And, our love and respect for those who have gone before us, simply will not allow us to stand idly by, and watch the continued degradation and purposeful destruction of a nation that was built through their sacrifices.

Modern American Liberals call this attitude “Nationalism” and/or “Jingoism”.

Those of us here in America’s Heartland, simply call it “being an American.”

The bold and brash nature of Trump and his “Political Correctness be d*mned” way of speaking, continues to strike a resonant chord in the hearts of average Americans, who, quite simply, are fed up with being told that we’re wrong for believing in these Traditional American Values.

What the Liberals, to this day,  do not seem to understand, is the more that they send paid protesters out to stop Trump from speaking and the more baseless propaganda that the Main Stream Media attempts to force-feed us every day on local and national newscasts, the more average Americans will support him, because, despite all of their best efforts to turn America into a Democratic Socialist Nation , we remain the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.

If this was any other time in the history of presidential elections, Senator Ted Cruz would probably be faring better.

Unfortunately for Senator Ted Cruz, thanks to his own bad choices and the contempt of the American Voting Public for professional politicians at this time, Trump sailed to victory in the Republican Primary.

One of those bad choices was forging an alliance with Radio Talk Show Host Glenn Beck.

Imperceptible at first, Beck slowly, over a span of years, changed from being an analyzer of the news, to a maker of it. He changed from being a commentator to being a self-appointed prophet.

Now, with the very real possibility of Donald J. Trump becoming the next President of the United States , Beck, whose severe case of Trump Derangement Syndrome, has made his once-entertaining radio program unlistenable, has turned into an Old Testament Prophet, shaming those Christians who may even be thinking about voting for Trump.

I do believe that Beck’s Holy Garments have ridden up into a dark and lonely place.

Once one of my favorite radio show hosts to listen to, Beck has, in the last couple of years, become unlistenable.

Quoting Conservative Radio Talk Show Host Laura Ingraham, from an article written for her website, Lifezette.com,

…a Donald Trump administration that would face real checks and balances, or a Hillary Clinton administration that would face almost none. Under these circumstances, it seems obvious that the prudent thing for a skeptical conservative to do is work with the Trump supporters to defeat Hillary Clinton — she is the much greater, and much more immediate, threat. I believe that a lot of conservatives realize these facts, but are troubled with the notion that by voting for Trump, they would be personally endorsing everything he says and does. But that is simply not true. We are talking about a temporary political alliance to keep Hillary Clinton out of the White House. No one seriously believes that John Adams supported slavery because he worked with slaveholders to throw the British out of Massachusetts. No one seriously believes that Churchill supported communism because he worked with Stalin to defeat Hitler. No one seriously believes that Hamilton and Madison agreed on everything because they cooperated on the Federalist Papers. There’s a reason we say that “politics makes strange bedfellows” — because political crises sometimes force people to form alliances with people they would otherwise oppose. For some conservatives, the 2016 election is plainly one of those times.

In short, when you apply the Cruz test to this election, it is clear that conservatives of good conscience can and should support Donald Trump. Indeed, failure to do so will put our entire political system — with all of the civil liberties we hold dear — at risk. I urge those conservatives who are concerned about Trump to think very, very carefully about this election, and work with the rest of us to defeat Hillary Clinton.

According to those “TRUE Conservatives”, like Eric Erickson, who believe that they are more “principled” than those of us Christian Conservatives who are going to vote for Trump, you are not truly a Christian or a “Principled Conservative”, if you are willing to support and vote for the Republican Presidential Candidate.

However, I beg to differ, and I stand with the Reverend Franklin Graham on this issue.

In  a  Facebook Post, written during the Republican Primaries, Rev. Graham wrote:

Trump Madness—It’s “trumping” everything in the news, even March Madness. Do you believe protesters blocking the road to his rally to stop people from getting there today? There are those who passionately support him and others who are adamantly against him. He’s a political phenomenon like our country hasn’t seen before. I don’t think America has ever had a presidential candidate opposed by both establishments, Republican and Democratic, as well as the sitting president. I just hope that as a result of this unforgettable campaign season, politicians on all sides will get the message loud and clear that Americans are tired of the status quo and the corruption that has gripped Washington. Join me in praying for the 2016 elections and for the future of this nation.

That being said, Rev. Graham, in a previous interview, done with CBN, stated that  “a left movement within the evangelical community that are telling people, ‘If so-and-so wins or this person wins don’t vote.’ ” Rev. Graham went on to add, “I’m just saying, I don’t care who wins and who’s out there, you have to vote.”

If Hillary Clinton wins the presidency, how does that prove your Christianity or prove you to be a person of principle? All it proves is that you stood by and let the country go to hell in a hand-basket.

I do not believe that Jesus would be a part of the Social Justice Movement, which is so popular among Liberal Churches, today. His was and is a soul-saving movement. One that still brings hundreds of thousand of people to individual salvation on this terrestrial ball every day. A movement that, in fact, was embraced by the founders of this cherished land.

Now is not the time to be pressing Christian Americans to make a “collective” choice to not support Trump, to move as “a Body”, if you will.

That being said, allow me to also state that I believe that American Evangelicals must excise their Spiritual Gift of Discernment in choosing between Donald J. Trump and Hillary Clinton for the job of President.

When Mitt Romney was the Republican Candidate for President in 2012, a lot of Americans stayed home, rather than vote for Romney.

That may have helped those individuals feel better about themselves, but it also helped to bring them and their fellow citizens four more years of economic suffering under the Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm).

Just as a Christian’s Salvation is not manifested as a Collective Experience, but a Personal one, so is a Christian American’s Voting Rights a Personal Experience.

I had somebody tell me during the Primaries, that they would “pray for me” to make the “right” choice, in the upcoming Presidential Election.

While the prayers of others are always appreciated, that hit me as if it was “The Church Lady” saying,

Well, bless your heart.

That’s an old Southern insult, in case you didn’t know.

My support of Donald  J. Trump, through the articles that I write, is my individual choice, made through a detailed study of facts and with a heart-felt reverence toward this Sacred Land and the One who brought our Forefathers here.

Can you vote for Donald J. Trump and still be a Christian?

Certainly you can.

Your Salvation is not determined by your vote…but, by God’s Grace.

And…

As Christians we are instructed to individually listen to that “Still Small Voice” inside us.

While Christians, in church and outside of it, represent the corporate Body of Christ, according to scripture, we each possess the Spiritual Gifts of Free Will and Discernment.

These gifts are used by each of us on a daily basis, including aiding in our decision to support a Presidential Candidate in the Election of 2016.

Unlike Liberals and Marxists (but, I may be repeating myself), we do not vote as a collective, nor should we.

There are no Saints who will be running as for the President of the United States of America, on either side. Just men and a woman…a very mean and evil woman.

And, America’s Christian Churches are not a Shrine for Saints. They are a Hospital for Sinners.

I’m just sayin’.

Each of us must decide for ourselves, whom we will vote for.

Since the “Shot Heard ‘Round The World” was fired on that fateful morning of April 19, 1775, this country has been built by Christian Americans making individual choices.

While we can not know what the actual future of America under either candidate would bring,  what is known , is that there was only one Perfect Man.

What is also known, is that there are only two legitimate choices for President in this election. And, staying home or voting stupidly is what got us Barack Hussein Obama.

America cannot afford to elect Hillary Clinton. God does not call upon us to destroy the very nation which he created through the hard work and sacrifice of Christian men and women.

There is a great difference between being “principled” and being hurt, angry, and hardheaded because your favorite political candidate did not win the Republican Primary Election.

Just as mistakes are made in our local churches by believing that the wishes of man are the Will of God, the choice you make to not vote or to vote stupidly is your choice alone, made through God’s Gift of Free Will.

As I said earlier in this post, our Individual Salvation is not determined by whom we vote for…but, by God’s Grace.

However, the much-needed Reclamation of America most certainly will be.

And, that is why this Christian American Conservative is voting for Donald J. Trump.

In closing, to those self-identified “True Conservative Facebook Political Pundits” out there, who seem to be suffering from a “logic impaction” (i.e., their head is presently lodged in a very dark and lonely place):

If your own personal , emotional, visceral temper tantrum-inducing hatred of Donald Trump precludes you from exercising your right to vote or causes you to think that a “protest vote” for a non-viable candidate is the correct action to take in this crucial election which will determine America’s Future…

…perhaps it is YOU who is not a “TRUE CONSERVATIVE”.

It Takes a Radical: The Very Political Life of Hillary Rodham Clinton-2016 Presidential Election Edition (An Unauthorized KJ Biographical Analysis)

October 30, 2016

corruptopus-600-liPROLOGUE:  I researched the follow­ing infor­ma­tion and record­ed it as a 4 part series about the 2016 presump­tive Democ­ra­t­ic Presi­den­tial Candi­date, Hillary Rodham Clinton. I am offer­ing it today, because, as her dream of becoming the President is hopefully coming to an end, I feel that it is imper­a­tive to share this infor­ma­tion in a form where it will be easy for you , gentle readers, to share with your friends and family. 

Buoyed by the complicity of the Main Stream Media and bought and paid for Democratic Operatives, over the years she has constantly presented herself as a “Moder­ate” Democ­rat, and “Woman of the People”, as a  linch­pin of her Campaign Strat­e­gy. However, the story of her life reveals someone quite differ­ent.


Hillary Clinton 1On October 26, 1947, Hillary Diane Rodham entered this world in Chicago, Illinois.Hillary Rodham, the oldest daugh­ter of Hugh Rodham, a prosper­ous fabric store owner, and Dorothy Emma Howell Rodham, was raised in Park Ridge, Illinois, a quaint little suburb locat­ed 15 miles north­west of downtown Chicago. Hillary has two younger broth­ers, Hugh Jr. (born 1950) and Antho­ny (born 1954).In her youth, the future Democ­rat was active in young Repub­li­can groups, even campaign­ing for the 1964 Repub­li­can Presi­den­tial Nominee, Barry Goldwater.According to Hil, she was inspired to work in some form of public service after hearing the Reverend Martin Luther King speak in Chicago. She became a Democ­rat in 1968.The young ingénue attend­ed Welles­ley College, where she was active in student politics, being elect­ed Senior Class Presi­dent before she gradu­at­ed in 1969.After that, Hilary enrolled in Yale Law School, where she met Bill “Bubba” Clinton.  Afer gradu­at­ing with honors in 1973, she then enrolled at Yale Child Study Center, where she took cours­es on children and medicine and complet­ed one post-graduate year of study, which explains her whole “It takes a village” philosophy.While a college student, Hillary worked sever­al summer jobs. In 1971, she arrived in Washing­ton, D.C. to work on U.S. Senator Walter Mondale’s sub-committee on migrant workers. The next summer found her out west, working for the campaign of Democ­ra­t­ic presi­den­tial nominee George McGovern.Then, in the spring of 1974, Rodham became a member of the presi­den­tial impeach­ment inquiry staff, advis­ing the Judicia­ry Commit­tee of the House of Repre­sen­ta­tives during the Water­gate Scandal.Her boss back then, Jerry Zeifman, now-retired gener­al counsel and chief of staff of the House Judicia­ry Commit­tee, tells a very reveal­ing story concern­ing her work there.According to Zeifman, a lifelong Democ­rat, Hillary got a job working on the inves­ti­ga­tion at the behest of her former Yale Law Profes­sor, Burke Marshall, also Sen. Ted Kennedy’s chief counsel in the Chappaquid­dick affair.When the Water­gate Inves­ti­ga­tion was over, Zeifman fired Hillary from the commit­tee staff and refused to give her a letter of recom­men­da­tion. That made the Future First Lady and Secre­tary of State one of only three people who earned that badge of dishon­or in Zeifman’s 17-year career.Why?Accord­ing to Zeifman,

Because she was a liar. She was an uneth­i­cal, dishon­est lawyer. She conspired to violate the Consti­tu­tion, the rules of the House, the rules of the commit­tee and the rules of confi­den­tial­i­ty.

Zeifman claims that she was one of sever­al individ­u­als includ­ing Marshall, Special Counsel John Doar, and Senior Associate Special Counsel (and future Clinton White House Counsel) Bernard Nussbaum, who plotted to deny Richard Nixon the right to counsel during the inves­ti­ga­tion.

Zeifman believes  that they were death­ly afraid of putting the break-in’s master­mind E. Howard Hunt on the stand to be cross-examined by Counsel to the Presi­dent.  The reason being, Hunt had the goods regard­ing some dirty dealings  in the Kennedy Admin­is­tra­tion that would have made Water­gate look like a kid busting open his Piggy Bank…dealings which purport­ed­ly includ­ed Kennedy’s complic­i­ty in the attempt­ed assas­si­na­tion of Fidel Castro.

Hillary and her associates were acting direct­ly again­st the decision of top Democ­rats, up to and includ­ing then-House Major­i­ty Leader Tip O’Neill, who all believed that Nixon clear­ly had the right to counsel.

The reason that Hillary and the rest came up with the scheme is because they believed that they could gain enough votes on the Judicia­ry Commit­tee to change House rules and deny counsel to Nixon.

In order to pull off this scheme, Zeifman says Hillary wrote a fraud­u­lent legal brief, and confis­cat­ed public documents to hide her decep­tion.

Hillary wanted to present in her brief that there was no right to repre­sen­ta­tion by counsel during an impeach­ment proceed­ing. Zeifman told Hillary about the case of Supre­me Court Justice William O. Douglas, who faced an impeach­ment attempt in 1970….

As soon as the impeach­ment resolu­tions were intro­duced by (then-House Minor­i­ty Leader Gerald) Ford, and they were referred to the House Judicia­ry Commit­tee, the first thing Douglas did was hire himself a lawyer.

Douglas was allowed to keep counsel by the Judicial Commit­tee in place at the time, which clear­ly estab­lished a prece­dent. Zeifman told Hillary that all the documents estab­lish­ing this fact were in the Judicia­ry Committee’s public files.

That was  a mistake, per Zeifman…

Hillary then removed all the Douglas files to the offices where she was locat­ed, which at that time was secured and inacces­si­ble to the public.

Hillary then wrote a legal brief which argued that there was no prece­dent for the right to repre­sen­ta­tion by counsel during an impeach­ment proceeding…ignoring the Douglas case complete­ly.

The brief was so laugh­ing­ly fraud­u­lent, Zeifman believes Hillary would have been disbarred if she had ever actual­ly submit­ted it to a judge.

Zeifman says that if Hillary and her associates had succeed­ed, members of the House Judicia­ry Commit­tee would have also been denied the right to cross-examine witness­es, and denied the oppor­tu­ni­ty to even be a part of the draft­ing of articles of impeach­ment again­st Nixon.

After Presi­dent Richard M. Nixon resigned in August, render­ing the matter of her decep­tion moot, Hillary became a facul­ty member of the Univer­si­ty of Arkansas Law School in Fayet­teville, where her Yale Law School class­mate and boyfriend Bill Clinton was also teach­ing.

Hillary Rodham married Bill Clinton on October 11, 1975, at their home in Fayet­teville. Before he proposed, Bubba had secret­ly purchased a small house that Hillary had previ­ous­ly said that she liked. When she accept­ed his marriage propos­al, he revealed that they owned the house.

Hillary Clinton #2After she married Bill in 1975, Hillary Rodham Clinton worked on Jimmy Carter’s success­ful campaign for presi­den­ti in1976, while Bill got elect­ed Attor­ney Gener­al of the state of Arkansas.

Hillary joined the Rose Law Firm in Little Rock after Bill became Attor­ney Gener­al, and made partner only after he was elect­ed gover­nor, accord­ing to Former Clinton Confi­dan­te Dick Morris.

That event occurred in 1978.

Presi­dent Carter appoint­ed Mrs. Clinton to the board of the Legal Services Corpo­ra­tion (LSC) in 1978. This was a feder­al­ly funded nonprof­it organi­za­tion which was designed as a way to expand the social welfare state and grow social welfare spend­ing. Accord­ing to Dick Morris, the appoint­ment was in exchange for Bill’s support for Carter in his 1980 prima­ry again­st Ted Kennedy. Hillary went on to become board chair­man in a coup in which she won a major­i­ty away from Carter’s choice to be chair­man.

Hillary more than tripled LSC’s annual budget, from $90 million to $321 million, in taxpay­er funds (OUR money). LSC used these funds in sever­al differ­ent ways, most notable among them, the print­ing of polit­i­cal train­ing manuals showing “how commu­ni­ty organi­za­tions and public inter­est groups can win polit­i­cal power and resources,” and the financ­ing of train­ing programs that taught polit­i­cal activists how to harass their opposi­tion.

While Hillary was running the LSC board, the Corpo­ra­tion also

1. Worked to defeat a Califor­nia refer­en­dum that would have cut state income taxes in half

2. Called for the U.S. govern­ment to give two-thirds of the state of Maine to Ameri­can Indians

3.  Paid Marxist orators and folk singers to wage a campaign again­st the Louisiana Wildlife Commis­sion

4.  Joined a Michi­gan initia­tive to recog­nize “Black English” as an official language;

5.  Sought to force the New York City Transit Author­i­ty to hire former heroin addicts so as to avoid “discriminat[ing]” again­st “minori­ties” who were “handi­capped.”

When it became clear that Ronald Reagan was on the verge of beating Democ­rat Presi­dent Jimmy Carter in 1980, LSC redirect­ed massive amounts of its public funding into an anti-Reagan letter-writing campaign by indigent clients. After Reagan was elect­ed in Novem­ber 1980, LSC immedi­ate­ly laundered its assets — some $260 million — into state-level agencies and private groups so as to keep the funds away from the board that Reagan would eventu­al­ly appoint. Hillary Clinton left LSC in 1981.

While Bubba was  Gover­nor of Arkansas from 1978 to 1980, and again from 1982 to 1992, Hillary was very active “behind the scenes”.

During these years, she contin­ued her legal practice as a partner in the Rose Law Firm. In 1978 she also became a board member of the Children’s Defense Fund (CDF), and from 1986 to 1992 she served as chair of the CDF Board.

From 1982 to 1988, Hillary also chaired the New World Founda­tion (NWF), which had helped to launch CDF in 1973. While running the NWF, the Founda­tion made grants to such organi­za­tions as the Nation­al Lawyers Guild, the Insti­tute for Policy Studies, the Chris­tic Insti­tute, Grass­roots Inter­na­tion­al, the Commit­tees in Solidar­i­ty with the People of El Salvador (which sought to foment a Commu­nist revolu­tion in Central Ameri­ca), and groups with ties to the most extreme elements of the African Nation­al Congress.

Accord­ing to Dick Morris, when Clinton was consid­er­ing not running for anoth­er term as Gover­nor of Arkansas in 1990, Hillary said she would run if he didn’t. She and Bill even had Morris take two surveys to assess her chances of winning. The conclu­sion was that she couldn’t win because people would just see her as a seat warmer for when Bill came back licking his wounds after losing for presi­dent. So she didn’t run. Bill did and won. But there is no question she had her eye on public office, as opposed to service, long ago.

So, while Bill was the Front Man, Hil worked “the Back of the House”, in prepa­ra­tion for her “moment in the spotlight”.

During the Clintons’ time in Arkansas, they also both became involved in a little matter which later became known as “The White­wa­ter Scandal”.

In 1978, while Bubba was Attor­ney Gener­al of Arkansas, Hil and he partnered with James and Susan McDougal in a purchase 220 acres of land that would evolve into the White­wa­ter Devel­op­ment Corpo­ra­tion. The real estate venture tanked, costing the Clintons a report­ed $40,000 in losses. After that James McDougal went into the banking indus­try, forming Madis­on Guaran­ty Savings and Loan.

In 1986, feder­al regula­tors inves­ti­gat­ed anoth­er real estate invest­ment backed by James McDougal. The inves­ti­ga­tion led to McDougal’s resig­na­tion from Madis­on Guaran­ty and the eventu­al collapse of the bank. Questions surround­ing the Clintons’ involve­ment in the White­wa­ter deal grew during Presi­dent Clinton’s first term in office and an inves­ti­ga­tion into the legal­i­ty of the White­wa­ter trans­ac­tions was launched.

All subse­quent inquiries into the White­wa­ter land deal yield­ed insuf­fi­cient evidence to charge the Clintons with crimi­nal conduct. Howev­er, sever­al of their associates were convict­ed as a result the inves­ti­ga­tions.

In July 1992, William Jeffer­son Clinton was nominat­ed by the Democ­ra­t­ic Party as their Candi­date for the Presi­den­cy of the United States.

In August of that year, Daniel Watten­berg wrote the follow­ing prophet­ic state­ment in the opening of an article for “The Ameri­can Specta­tor” titled, “The Lady Macbeth of Little Rock”…

Hillary Clinton has been likened to Eva Peron, but it’s a bad analo­gy. Evita was worshipped by the “shirt­less ones,” the working class, while Hillary’s charms elude most outside of an élite cohort of left-liberal, baby–boom feminists-the type who thought Anita Hill should be canon­ized and Thelma and Louise was the best movie since Easy Rider. Hillary reckons herself the next Eleanor Roosevelt. But, stand­ing well to the left of her husband and enjoy­ing an indepen­dent power base within his coali­tion, Hillary is best thought of as the Winnie Mande­la of Ameri­can politics. She has likened the Ameri­can family to slavery, thinks kids should be able to sue their parents to resolve family arguments, and during her tenure as a founda­tion officer gave away millions (much of it in no-strings-attached grants) to the left-including sizable sums to hard-left organiz­ers. She is going to cause her husband no end of polit­i­cal embar­rass­ment between now and November-and who knows how long after­ward.

Mr. Watten­berg nailed that one, huh?

Hillary Clinton #3Bill Clinton was inaugu­rat­ed as the 42nd Presi­dent of the United States of Ameri­ca on January 20, 1993.  Stand­ing right behind him…and pushing hard was Hillary Rodham Clinton, by now widely known as the more-driven, and polit­i­cal­ly ambitious one of the couple.

Billed as “the New Camelot” by the Main Stream Media, the Clintons strode arm-in-arm into their castle to preside over their new kingdom, where Progres­sivism in the name of “Moder­a­tion” would be the Law of the Land.

Howev­er, just as the reign of Arthur and Guinev­ere ended badly, into the Clintons’ story­book “Co-Presidency”, “a little rain” fell in the form of scandals and quite a few “Bimbo Eruptions” which brought about an inglo­ri­ous end to all of their “peace and harmony”.

Rose Law Firm Billing – As I wrote previ­ous­ly, in 1978, while Bubba was Attor­ney Gener­al of Arkansas, Hil and he partnered with James and Susan McDougal in a purchase 220 acres of land that would evolve into the White­wa­ter Devel­op­ment Corpo­ra­tion. The real estate venture tanked, costing the Clintons a report­ed $40,000 in losses. After that James McDougal went into the banking indus­try, forming Madis­on Guaran­ty Savings and Loan.

In 1986, feder­al regula­tors inves­ti­gat­ed anoth­er real estate invest­ment backed by James McDougal. The inves­ti­ga­tion led to McDougal’s resig­na­tion from Madis­on Guaran­ty and the eventu­al collapse of the bank. Questions surround­ing the Clintons’ involve­ment in the White­wa­ter deal grew during Presi­dent Clinton’s first term in office and an inves­ti­ga­tion into the legal­i­ty of the White­wa­ter trans­ac­tions was launched.

After nearly two years of search­es and subpoe­nas, the White House announced on the evening of January 6, 1996, that it had unexpect­ed­lydiscov­ered copies of missing documents from the Rose Law Firm that describe Hillary Rodham Clinton’s work for a failing savings and loan associ­a­tion in the 1980′s.

Feder­al and Congres­sion­al inves­ti­ga­tors had issued subpoe­nas for the documents since 1994, and the White House claimed not have them. The origi­nals disap­peared from the Rose Law Firm, short­ly before Bill Clinton was inaugu­rat­ed as Presi­dent.

The newly discov­ered documents were copies of billing records from the Rose firm. The origi­nals were found under the Clintons’ bed in the White House, short­ly after the statute of limita­tions ran out.

All subse­quent inquiries into the White­wa­ter land deal yield­ed insuf­fi­cient evidence to charge the Clintons with crimi­nal conduct. Howev­er, sever­al of their associates were convict­ed as a result of the inves­ti­ga­tions.

Death of Vince Foster – On July 20, 1993, Vincent W. Foster Jr., the deputy counsel to the presi­dent of the United States, and former partner with Hillary, in The Rose Law Firm, was found lying neatly face-up on a steep embank­ment in Marcy Park with his feet point­ing down, dressed in expen­sive trousers and a white dress shirt, less than eight miles from the White House, with a single gun-shot wound to the head. Dead. Some of the blood on Foster’s face was still wet, but start­ing to dry. A trail of blood flowed upwards from his nose to above his ear. The man who found his body said there was no gun, but after he left to notify police, a gun appeared in Foster’s hand. Presi­dent William Jeffer­son Clinton’s Arkansas child­hood friend, First Lady Hillary Clinton’s Rose Law Firm partner, and White House confidante’s death was to become the subject of contro­ver­sy.

Due to Foster’s involve­ment in White­wa­ter, both at Rose and in the White House, the Senate White­wa­ter Commit­tee investigation’s conclu­sion revealed that there was “a concert­ed effort by senior White House officials to block career law enforce­ment inves­ti­ga­tors from conduct­ing a thorough inves­ti­ga­tion” into Foster’s death, and recom­mend­ed “that steps be taken to insure that such misuse of the White House counsel’s office does not recur in this, or any future, admin­is­tra­tion.”

So, was Vince Foster murdered? And, why?

In 1999, a book titled, “Bill and Hillary: The Marriage”, caused a lot of conster­na­tion among the Clintons and their support­ers.

The author, Christo­pher Ander­sen, claimed that in 1977 she began an intense­ly passion­ate affair with Vince Foster.

The affair suppos­ed­ly took place when the two were lawyers at The Rose Law Firm in Little Rock, Arkansas, while Bubba was gover­nor.

Rumors of an affair first start­ed buzzing around after Foster was found in Marcy Park. The book did not say when the relation­ship ended.

To this day, the circum­stances surround­ing the death of Vince Foster, remain a topic for conjec­ture.

 Travel­gate – In early summer of 1993, 6 employ­ees of the White House Travel Office were fired, after Hil and Bubba deter­mined that the Travel Office workers, who served at the pleasure of the presi­dent, could be fired and that the Travel Office business, and the commis­sions that came along with it, Coulée be taken over by a cousin of Presi­dent Clinton’s, Cather­ine Cornelius, who already owned her own travel agency.

Howev­er, they could not just go ahead and hand over a govern­men­tal office to a relative, without a backlash, so the Clintons made up a story, claim­ing that the Travel Office was rife with corrup­tion and the workers there had to be fired. An audit of the Travel Office ensued, and while the record-keeping at the office was found to have been pretty inade­quate, no corrup­tion or embez­zle­ment were found. That did not matter to the Clintons, so they went ahead and pressured the FBI to make arrests, and the local US Attor­ney was given instruc­tions to prose­cute the employ­ees for corrup­tion.

Of course, the Clintons denied being behind any sort of scheme in the matter. Howev­er, leaks by those involved, led to a firestorm of media criti­cism. Most of the Travel Office employ­ees were eventu­al­ly given other govern­ment jobs or retired and the trial for corrup­tion of the head of the Travel Office, Billy Dale, ended in a verdict of “NOT GUILTY”.

Clinton’s cousin was subse­quent­ly removed as new head of the Travel Office.

After­ward, Indepen­dent Counsel Robert Ray wrote a report that conclud­ed that, while she did not make any knowingly-false state­ments under oath, First Lady Hillary Clinton had made a number of inaccu­rate state­ments concern­ing the firings and her role in them.

Bimbo Eruptions – Back in the Bill Clinton era, White House advisor Betsey Wright coined the term “bimbo eruptions” to describe a long list of presi­den­tial gal pals.

BIll “Bubba” Clinton’s Bimbo List” includ­ed, but is not limit­ed to (I’m sure) Jennifer Flowers, Former Miss Ameri­ca Eliza­beth Ward, Paul Corbin Jones, and, of course, Monica Lewin­sky.

The Lewin­sky scandal was a sensa­tion that enveloped the presi­den­cy of Bill Clinton in 1998–99, leading to his impeach­ment by the U.S. House of Repre­sen­ta­tives and acquit­tal by the Senate.

Paula Corbin Jones, a former Arkansas state worker who claimed that Bill Clinton had accost­ed her sexual­ly in 1991 when he was gover­nor of Arkansas, had brought a sexual harass­ment lawsuit again­st the presi­dent. In order to show a pattern of behav­ior on Clinton’s part, Jones’s lawyers questioned sever­al women believed to have been engag­ing in sex  with him. On Jan. 17, 1998, Bubba took the stand, becom­ing the first sitting presi­dent to testi­fy as a civil defen­dant.

During this testi­mony, Clinton denied having had an affair with Monica S. Lewin­sky, an unpaid intern and later a paid staffer at the White House who worked in the White House from 1995–96. Lewin­sky had earlier, in a deposi­tion in the same case, also denied having such a relation­ship. Kenneth Starr, the indepen­dent counsel in the White­wa­ter case, had already received tape record­ings made by Linda R. Tripp (a former cowork­er of Lewinsky’s) of telephone conver­sa­tions in which Lewin­sky described her involve­ment with the presi­dent. Assert­ing that there was a “pattern of decep­tion,” Starr obtained from Attor­ney Gener­al Janet Reno permis­sion to inves­ti­gate the matter.

The presi­dent publicly denied having had a relation­ship with Lewin­sky and charges of cover­ing it up. His advis­er, Vernon Jordan, denied having counseled Lewin­sky to lie in the Jones case, or having arranged a job for her outside Washing­ton, to help cover up the affair. Hillary Clinton claimed that a “vast right-wing conspir­a­cy” was trying to destroy her husband, while Repub­li­cans and conser­v­a­tives portrayed him as immoral and a liar.

In March, Jordan and others testi­fied before Starr’s grand jury, and lawyers for Paula Jones released papers reveal­ing, among other things, that Clinton, in his January deposi­tion, had admit­ted to a sexual relation­ship in the 1980s with Arkansas enter­tain­er Gennifer Flowers, a charge he had long denied. In April, howev­er, Arkansas feder­al judge Susan Webber Wright dismissed the Jones suit, ruling that Jones’s story, if true, showed that she had been exposed to “boorish” behav­ior but not sexual harass­ment; Jones appealed.

In July, Starr grant­ed Lewin­sky immuni­ty from perjury charges, and Clinton agreed to testi­fy before the grand jury. He did so on Aug. 17, then went on televi­sion to admit the affair with Lewin­sky and ask for forgive­ness. In Septem­ber, Starr sent a 445-page report to the House of Repre­sen­ta­tives, recom­mend­ing four possi­ble grounds for impeach­ment: perjury, obstruc­tion of justice, witness tamper­ing, and abuse of author­i­ty.

On Dec. 19, Clinton became the second presi­dent (after Andrew Johnson) to be impeached, on two charges: perjury—in his Aug., 1998, testimony—and obstruc­tion of justice. The vote in the House was large­ly along party lines.

In Jan., 1999, the trial began in the Senate. On Feb. 12, after a trial in which testi­mony relat­ing to the charges was limit­ed, the Senate reject­ed both counts of impeach­ment. The perjury charge lost, 55–45, with 10 Repub­li­cans joining all 45 Democ­rats in voting again­st it; the obstruc­tion charge drew a 50–50 vote. Subse­quent­ly, on Apr. 12, Judge Wright, who had dismissed the Jones case, found the presi­dent in contempt for lying in his Jan., 1998, testi­mony, when he denied the Lewin­sky affair. In July, Judge Wright ordered the presi­dent to pay nearly $90,000 to Ms. Jones’s lawyers. On Jan. 19, 2001, the day before he left office, Presi­dent Clinton agreed to admit to giving false testi­mony in the Jones case and to accept a five-year suspen­sion of his law license and a $25,000 fine in return for an agree­ment by the indepen­dent counsel, Robert W. Ray (Starr’s succes­sor), to end the inves­ti­ga­tion and not prose­cute him.

In a later inter­view, Hillary claimed that Bill suffered child­hood abuse which may have caused him to philan­der­er and experi­ence “bimbo eruptions” later in life. She described her philan­der­ing husband as “a hard dog to keep on the porch”.

The Clinton Co-Presidency ended with the Inaugu­ra­tion of Presi­dent George W. Bush on January 20, 2001.

Howev­er, Hillary Clinton’s “time in the Spotlight” was just begin­ning.

Hillary Clinton #4On Novem­ber 6, 2000, Former First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton was elect­ed Democ­ra­t­ic Senator for the State of New York, serving unremark­ably until leaving Office on January 21, 2009.

During her undis­tin­guished career in the U.S. Senate, Hillary Clinton voted on a variety of key pieces of legis­la­tion as follows:

  • in favor of a 2003 bill to ban oil explo­ration in the Arctic Nation­al Wildlife Refuge
  • in favor of an October 2002 joint resolu­tion to autho­rize the use of the U.S. Armed Forces again­st Iraq
  • again­st major tax-cut propos­als in 2001 and 2003
  • in favor of a 2007 propos­al to end the use of a point-based immigra­tion system, (i.e., a system that seeks to ensure that people with skills that society needs are given prefer­ence for entry into the United States)
  • again­st a 2007 amend­ment desig­nat­ing English as the language of “sole legal author­i­ty” for the business of the feder­al govern­ment, and declar­ing that no person has a right to require officials of the U.S. govern­ment to use a language other than English
  • again­st a 2008 bill urging an expan­sion of the zero-tolerance prose­cu­tion policy for illegal aliens; calling for the comple­tion of 700 miles of pedes­tri­an fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border; allow­ing for the deploy­ment of up to 6,000 Nation­al Guard members to the U.S. south­ern border; and encour­ag­ing the identi­fi­ca­tion and depor­ta­tion of illegal immigrants current­ly in the Ameri­can prison system
  • in favor of the Campaign Finance Reform Act of 2002 (McCain-Feingold Act), which put restric­tions on paid adver­tis­ing during the weeks just prior to polit­i­cal elections, and tight­ly regulat­ed the amount of money which polit­i­cal parties and candi­dates could accept from donors
  • again­st separate propos­als (in 2004 and 2005) to ban lawsuits again­st gun manufac­tur­ers, distrib­u­tors, dealers, and importers for damages result­ing from the misuse of their products by others
  • again­st a 2003 propos­al to ban the late-term proce­dure common­ly known as “partial-birth abortion”
  • again­st a 2004 propos­al to make it an added crimi­nal offense for someone to injure or kill a fetus while carry­ing out a crime again­st a pregnant woman
  • again­st a 2006 bill making it illegal to knowing­ly trans­port a pregnant minor across state lines in order to obtain an abortion, as a way to escape state laws requir­ing parental consent

One week after Barack Hussein Obama was elect­ed Presi­dent of the United States, on Novem­ber 4, 2008, he called Hillary and offered her the job of Secre­tary of State, despite the fact that she had no Foreign Policy experi­ence. It was a suspi­cious choice at best, consid­er­ing that fact that when they were running again­st each other in the Democ­ra­t­ic Primaries,Obama had specif­i­cal­ly criti­cized Clinton’s Foreign Policy creden­tials and the initial idea of him appoint­ing her had been so unexpect­ed that she had told one of her own aides, “Not in a million years.”

The fact that she had campaigned unreserved­ly for Obama after he defeat­ed her for the Democ­ra­t­ic Nomina­tion, led to specu­la­tion that the Secre­tary of State job was a “reward for her loyal­ty”.

Hillary accept­ed the position, and now, even as her campaign for the Leadership of the Free World is apparently going down in flames, even the Main Stream Media is hard-pressed to come up with anything she accom­plished as Obama’s First Secre­tary of State.

So, how did she do?

On January 26, 2013, after Hillary had stepped down as Secre­tary of State and was replaced by Senator John Kerry, the follow­ing conver­sa­tion took place between Fox News Anchor Chris Wallace and Fox News Senior Polit­i­cal Analyst Brit Hume…

WALLACE: Yeah, I want to pick up on that, Brit, because during the hearing, what struck me was the Repub­li­cans were tough on Hillary, on Benghazi and the Democ­rats weren’t. But, both sides kept on saying what a great secre­tary of state she had been and to praise her service. And here’s some of the points that have been brought up, some of her accom­plish­ments. She helped assem­ble the bombing campaign in Libya to topple Muammar Qaddafi. She helped assem­bly the coali­tion that imposed the tough­est sanctions ever on Iran. And, she estab­lished diplo­mat­ic ties with Burma.

Question, Brit, how do you rate Hillary Clinton’s perfor­mance, record as our top diplo­mat?

HUME: I think those examples you cited would add up to a case for her compe­tence. They do not add up to a case for great­ness, after all, the ground­work on Burma had been done by the previ­ous admin­is­tra­tion. And the admin­is­tra­tion proper­ly followed through on it. You look across the world, now at the major issues. Are Arabs and Israelis closer to peace? How about Iran and North Korea and their nuclear programs? Have they been halted or serious­ly set back? Has the reset with Russia, which she so famous­ly intro­duced with the photo-op in Moscow with the reset button, has they lead to a new and more coöper­a­tive relation­ship? Is there a Clinton doctrine that we can identi­fy that she has artic­u­lat­ed and formed as secre­tary of state? Are there major treaties that she has under­tak­en and negoti­at­ed through to a success­ful conclu­sion? I think the answer to all those questions is that she has not. And those are the kinds of things that might mark her as a great secre­tary of state.

She has certain­ly been indus­tri­ous. She has visit­ed 112 countries. Her conduct as secre­tary of state has been highly digni­fied. She does her homework. There have been no gaffes or blunders. So I think she has been a capable and hard-working secre­tary of state, but I think the case for her being a great secre­tary of state is exceed­ing­ly weak.

Brit was being gracious. Here are seven Foreign Policy Disas­ters, which happened under Hillary’s watch as the Archi­tect of “Smart Power!”, in no partic­u­lar order:

The decision to overthrow Presi­dent Gaddafi in Libya – The short-sighted, ill-conceived action not only under­mined an ally in the (now defunct) “global war on terror,” it also served to throw gasoline on the bonfire known as “Arab Spring.

The Afghanistan “surge”- A military campaign that fails to result in a desired polit­i­cal outcome is con only be consid­ered a failure. What exact­ly was Obama and Hillary’s desired outcome when they called for this?
It is a fait d’accompli that the Karzai Govern­ment will be able to survive long once the U.S. completes its withdrawal of its combat forces from the country in 2014. This is can only be consid­ered a failure, A failure which cost too many of our Bright­est and Best.

Grant­i­ng Afghanistan major non-NATO U.S. ally status – Why did Barry and Hill decide to grant Afghanistan the status of a major non-NATO ally? When we pull out, our enemied will pour in. And, with “friends” like these, you don’t need enemies.

Maintain­ing the status quo with Pakistan – Pakistan has a long histo­ry of sponsor­ing Sunni jihadists of various stripes. Follow­ing the 2001 attacks on the United States, they did an about-face, becom­ing a chief partner in the U.S. military campaign in Afghanistan as well as its “global war on terror.”
10 years later, follow­ing the success­ful May 2011 raid in Abbot­tabad, Pakistan that result­ed in the death of Al-Qaeda founder Osama bin Laden, Pakistan prompt­ly denounced the U.S. and closed its vital supply routes to NATO-bound shipments to Afghanistan.
Hil and Barry got “played”.

The East Asia “pivot” – Strict­ly an exercise in containment,attempts at contain­ing China will only fuel Chine­se fears of foreign encir­clement, that will encour­age Chine­se assertive­ness, that will further encour­age contain­ment.
This pivot is only a bluff on behalf of the feckless purvey­ors of “Smart Power” to begin with.

As shown by the contin­ued drawing of “Red Lines”, they will not stand up to our enemies.

Arab Spring – The Arab Spring was a series of protests and upris­ings in the Middle East that began with unrest in Tunisia in late 2010. The Arab Spring has brought down regimes in some Arab countries, sparked mass violence in others, while some govern­ments managed to delay the trouble with a mix of repres­sion, promise of reform and state largesse.
Through this all Hillary and Obama have back the Muslim Broth­er­hood, the Godfa­ther of Muslim Terror­ist Organi­za­tions, in depos­ing Moder­ate Muslim Leaders.
Doesn’t make a while lot of sense, does it?

Benghazi­Gate – On Septem­ber 11, 2012, Muslim Terror­ists stormed the US Embassy Compound in Benghazi, Libya, slaugh­tered 4 brave Ameri­cans, includ­ing US Ambas­sador Chris Stephens, whose lifeless, sexual­ly assault­ed body they drug through the streets, while taking cell phone pictures of his corpse.
I have written sever­al blogs about the Administration’s Cover-up of this atroc­i­ty, but the seminal moment, regard­ing Hillary Clinton came in January of 2013, during an exchange between her and Sen. Ron Johnson of Wiscon­sin at a Foreign Relations Commit­tee hearing.
Johnson asked her about the administration’s conflict­ing expla­na­tions for the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, which killed the ambas­sador and three other Ameri­cans. Hillary, as we say down here in Dixie, “got on her high keys” and said,

With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Ameri­cans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night decid­ed to go kill some Ameri­cans? What differ­ence at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do every­thing we can to prevent it from ever happen­ing again, Senator.

And, now, as the 2016 Presidential Election approaches, more and more of the magnitude of Clinton’s corruption has been revealed through…

The Clinton Foundation Scandal, WikiLeaks, and E-mailgate – As more and more information concerning the unimaginable corruption of Hillary Clinton, Former President Bill Clinton and their Political Operatives, including John Podesta and Huma Abedin is presented to the American Public on a daily basis, it becomes more and more apparent that the Clintons  and their Political Machine have always considered themselves to be ABOVE THE LAW.

Unfortunately, for her, unlike New York’s Boss Tweed or Memphis’ Boss Crump, who both ruled their Political Empires in much the same way that Hillary has ruled her’s, Hillary inadvertently left an digital “paper trail”.

This trail has exposed the Pay-For-Play Money Laundering Schemes which arose from The Clinton Foundation, and which in turn were used to fund Hillary’s Political Ambitions, and which caused the Clintons to go from being “destitute” when they left the White House, to now being wealthy beyond imagination.

This Digital “paper Trail” has also revealed a cold, calculating Modern-day Female Machiavelli, who built her Political Empire unrestrained by those things which “shackle” us “commoners”.  Things such as ETHICS AND MORALITY.

It is the height of irony, that a creature such as Clinton Aide Humana Abedin’s estranged Husband, Former Congressman Anthony Weiner, a Serial “Sexter” seemingly void of any concept of ethics and morality himself, will wind up being the unwitting instrument of Hillary Clinton’s Political Demise.

Summary – Even though the Clintons have always appeared to be above the law, and skip past every scandal  like a fried egg in those Teflon Skillet commercials, an example must be set, so that the America’s secrets and the safety of our Military and Intelligence Operatives acting covertly in foreign lands, will be protected for the continued sovereignty of our nation.

A President of the United States must be trustworthy, not only for the reassurance of its citizens that they will do the right thing when a crisis occurs, but also for the assurance of our overseas allies, that we will have their backs in case of a crisis in their nation.

Time and time again, from Watergate to Travelgate to Benghazigate, and now to The Clinton Foundation Scandal, WikiLeaks, and E-mailgate, Hillary Clinton has proven to be a ruthless, untrustworthy, Machiavellian professional politician, who only cares about herself and her ascension to the Presidency of the United States of America.

Every successful person is ambitious. Donald J Trump is an ambitious man. However, judging from his track record and the charitible things that he has done for Americans behind the scenes,  for which he neither sought nor received any publicity for, and his public accomplishments, along with his stated love for this country and his wish for us to prosper economically and once again resume our place as Leader of the Free World, as an average American, I will be voting for him in November of 2016 to become our next President.

America has endured enough duplicity and political chicanery in the last 7 years to last us for centuries. The deleterious effect of the Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama has left a stain of incompetent leadership and out-of-control political correctness which will take years to wash away.

America and the rest of the Free World cannot afford the devastating effects of a Hillary Clinton Presidency.

Just like the Broadcast Networks have ended just about all of their soap operas which aired on their channels on a daily basis, Americans need to pull the plug on the failed leadership and the legacy which Barack Hussein Obama is leaving behind.

…including the unfathomable corruption which is the Political Legacy of Hillary Clinton.

Indeed, it is time to make America great again.

Until He Comes,

The Long and Short of It: A Reopened FBI Case, A Heated Hillary, A Hiding Huma, and An Exposed Weiner

October 29, 2016

The year was 1974, and producer Michael Phillips had a good view of the stage during the 46th Academy Awards ceremony. He was nominated for Best Picture, and he was anxiously waiting for Elizabeth Taylor to appear and announce the winner. Suddenly a thin, dark-haired naked man came streaking out from stage left waving a two-fingered peace sign.

In the ensuing uproar, it fell to co-host David Niven, a debonair Brit best known for his portrayal of Phileas Fogg in Around the World in 80 Days, to keep things moving along. As the streaker flashed the audience one last time before disappearing, Niven quipped, “Isn’t it fascinating to think that probably the only laugh that man will ever get in life is by stripping off and showing his shortcomings?” – **courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter**

The streaking incident became a part of Hollywood Legend overnight and even now is widely cited as one of the Oscar’s most memorable moments.

In an example of history repeating itself, Hillary Clinton’s Presidential Campaign had been stopped dead in its tracks by another schmuck “stripping off and showing his shortcomings”.

Yahoonews.com reports that

WASHINGTON/NEW YORK (Reuters) – The FBI is investigating more emails as part of a probe into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email system, it said on Friday, in a new twist that could damage the Democratic candidate in the 2016 presidential race.

Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey said in a letter to senior lawmakers that the agency would determine whether the additional emails contained classified information, adding that he did not know “how long it will take us to complete this additional work.”

The announcement came as Clinton and Republican opponent Donald Trump enter the final stretch of campaigning ahead of the Nov. 8 election.

In a news conference late on Friday in Des Moines, Iowa, Clinton urged Comey to release more details about what the FBI was looking for in the newly discovered emails.

She leads Trump in opinion polls after a bruising campaign in which she has struggled to convince voters that she is trustworthy and honest. Fresh revelations about her use of email are unlikely to assuage those concerns, and questions around the FBI investigation will now likely dog her in the coming days as she campaigns across battleground states.

U.S. stocks immediately fell sharply on the news, but went on to partially recover.

The FBI spent about a year investigating Clinton’s use of the unauthorized server at her home in Chappaqua, New York, while she was U.S. secretary of state after classified government secrets were found in some of her emails.

Comey said in July that while “there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.”

Although Comey recommended no criminal charges be brought against Clinton, Trump has repeatedly said her email practices are criminal and should disqualify her for office. He seized on Friday’s development at rallies in Maine and New Hampshire.

“This is the biggest political scandal since Watergate, and I’m sure it will be properly handled from this point forward,” Trump told a crowd in Lisbon, Maine.

“We hope that all, all justice will be fully served,” he said. Supporters cheered his words and chanted, “Lock her up.”

Clinton said she had learned of the newly discovered emails from news reports.

“I’m confident whatever they are will not change the conclusion reached in July,” she said. “That’s why it’s incumbent upon the FBI to tell us what’s going on.”

WEINER

Two sources close to the investigation said the latest emails were discovered not during an investigation into Clinton, but rather as part of a separate probe into Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

The FBI has been investigating illicit text messages allegedly sent from Weiner to a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina, and found the Clinton emails on a device related to that investigation, the sources said.

Abedin told federal investigators in April that she used several email accounts for her work, including a Yahoo email, according to a summary of the interview released by the FBI in September. She said it was difficult to print from the State Department’s email system so she routinely forwarded documents to her private accounts when she needed to print them out, according to the summary.

Abedin announced her separation from Weiner in August after a sex scandal similar to an earlier incident that led him to resign from the U.S. Congress.

Lawyers representing Abedin did not respond to questions sent by email on Friday. Weiner did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment, and he did not respond to phone calls.

Hank Sheinkopf, a Democratic strategist who had previously advised former President Bill Clinton but has no role with Hillary Clinton’s campaign, said the linking of Clinton’s email woes with Weiner’s sex scandals made it harder for her campaign to distinguish itself from Trump’s sex scandals.

“The whole campaign is now smeared with sex, corruption and scandal,” he said. “Nobody remembers the beginning of something, they only remember the end. What are they going to remember? They’re all the same: sex, scandal, corruption, emails. People are going to have trouble sorting out all this information.”

“EXTRAORDINARY”

Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, said it was “extraordinary” for the FBI to release the letter so close to the end of a hotly contested election.

“The Director owes it to the American people to immediately provide the full details of what he is now examining,” Podesta said in a statement. “We are confident this will not produce any conclusions different from the one the FBI reached in July.”

Clinton has repeatedly apologized for using the private email server in her home instead of a government email account for her work as secretary of state from 2009 to 2013. She has said she did not knowingly send or receive classified information.

While the FBI probe of new emails will likely prove a distraction to Clinton in the coming days, it was unclear what impact it would have when Americans go to the polls. Election experts say about 20 percent of ballots have already been cast, as more Americans vote by mail or go to the polls early.

“A lot of concern about the emails has already been baked into this electoral cake I think,” said Linda Fowler, a professor of government at Dartmouth College. “They know she did it, they know it was inappropriate and, failing some sensational revelation on Nov. 6, it’s hard to see that it’s going to make that big a difference.”

Still, Republican lawmakers, who are facing a difficult fight to keep their majorities in both the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives, leaped to condemn Clinton.

House Speaker Paul Ryan reiterated his call that the Democratic nominee be barred from briefings involving classified information until the investigation is over. Reince Priebus, the head of the Republican National Committee, said the FBI’s decision to look into the emails shows “how serious this discovery must be.”

Clinton did not respond to reporters’ shouted questions about the news when she left her plane for a campaign stop in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

What is revealed  in this new batch of e-mails about Huma Abedin’s role in this whole boondoggle known as Clinton’s Term as Secretary of State that has caused her to go into hiding after being interviewed by the FBI once already?

It is no secret that Huma Abedin is Hillary’s closet confidant.  Mrs. Anthony Weiner has been with the Former Secretary of State. as her Aide-De-Camp, for a quite a while.

For those of you who are not aware of Ms. Abedin’s troubling past and familial connections, here are some bullet points, courtesy of discoverthenetworks.org

  • Huma Abedin was born in 1976 in Kalamazoo, Michigan.[She is the] Daughter of Saleha Mahmood Abedin, a pro-Sharia sociologist with ties to numerous Islamist organizations including the Muslim Brotherhood
  • Longtime assistant to Hillary Clinton 
  • Longtime former employee of the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs, which shares the Muslim Brotherhood’s goal of establishing Islamic supremacy and Sharia Law worldwide.
  • …From 1997 until sometime before early 1999, Abedin, while still interning at the White House, was an executive board member of George Washington University’s (GWU) Muslim Students Association (MSA), heading the organization’s “Social Committee.”
  • It is noteworthy that in 2001-02, soon after Abedin left that executive board, the chaplain and “spritual guide” of GWU’s MSA was Anwar al-Awlaki, the al Qaeda operative who ministered to some of the men who were among the 9/11 hijackers. Another chaplain at GWU’s MSA (from at least October 1999 through April 2002) was Mohamed Omeish, who headed the International Islamic Relief Organization, which has been tied to the funding of al Qaeda.
  • From 1996-2008, Abedin was employed by the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs (IMMA) as the assistant editor of its in-house publication, the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs (JMMA). At least the first seven of those years overlapped with the al Qaeda-affiliated Abdullah Omar Naseef’s active presence at IMMA. Abedin’s last six years at the Institute (2002-2008) were spent as a JMMA editorial board member; for one of those years, 2003, Naseef and Abedin served together on that board.
  • Abedin went on maternity leave after giving birth to a baby boy in early December 2011. When she returned to work in June 2012, the State Department granted her an arrangement that allowed her to do outside consulting work as a “special government employee,” even as she remained a top advisor in the Department. Abedin did not disclose on her financial report either the arrangement or the$135,000 she earned from it, in violation of a law mandating that public officials disclose significant sources of income.
  • Abedin’s outside clients included the U.S. State Department, Hillary Clinton, the William Jefferson Clinton Foundation, and Teneo (a firm co-founded by Doug Band, a former counselor for Bill Clinton). Good-government groups warned of the potential conflict-of-interest inherent in an arangement where a government employee maintains private clients.
  • On February 1, 2013—Hillary Clinton’s final day as Secretary of State—Abedin resigned her post as Mrs. Clinton’s deputy chief of staff. Yet she would continue to serve as a close aide to Clinton.
  • On March 1, 2013, Abedin was tapped to run Clinton’s post-State Department transition team, comprised of a six-person “transition office” located in Washington.
  • Huma Abedin’s brother, Hassan Abedin, has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and is currently an associate editor with the JMMA. Hassan was once a fellow at the Oxford Center for Islamic Studies, at a time when the Center’s board included such Brotherhood-affiliated figures as Yusuf al-Qaradawi and Abdullah Omar Naseef.
  • Huma’s sister, Heba Abedin (formerly known as “Heba A. Khaled”), is an assistant editor with JMMA, where she served alongside Huma prior to the latter’s departure.

Speaking straight from the heart, as an American Citizen, I find it beyond the pale that, during the time of Hillary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State, someone with direct ties to our sworn enemies, the Muslim Brotherhood, had access to the highest level of Top Secret Information contained in our State Department, being sent to her over Secretary Clinton’s own unsecured e-mail Server.

And, the thing is, she not only had access through her job as Assistant to Secretary of State Clinton, she also had access to government information through pillow talk with her husband, then-Congressman and “Professional Sexter” Anthony Weiner.

Being the “proud Muslim” that she has proclaimed herself to be, it is not beyond the realm of possibility that this information found its way to her “troubling Familial Affiliations”?

Which brings up a troubling question: Considering her familial ties, how deeply was Ms. Abedin involved in “BenghaziGate”?

When I first considered the reality of Hillary Clinton running for President, a great many thoughts entered my head…some of them even repeatable.

In fact, there are a lot of images that race through my mind, right now, on the morning of “Super Tuesday”, as I sit here at my computer.

I remember the image of a lone terrorist, brandishing a machine gun, standing in front of the burning Benghazi Consulate.

I also remember the image of Benghazi Barbarians dragging a murdered Ambassador Chris Stevens through the streets, taking pictures every few yards, with their cell phones.

My mind envisions the image of two brave Americans, up on a roof holding off 100 Muslim Terrorists, trying desperately to hold out for help which was denied to them, until finally the overwhelming numbers which comprise the horde of barbarians, murdered them as well.

I can imagine Ambassador Stevens’ elderly mother, making the trip from the West Coast to the East Coast to pick up the lifeless body of her abused and murdered son, whom she and her entire family were so proud of.

Finally, I remember the show of hypocrisy involving members of this anti-American Administration, including then-Secretary of State Clinton, solemnly welcoming the bodies of those brave Americans home.

Former Secretary Clinton…the truth makes a big difference…even after all this time, to the families of those that were so savagely murdered that fateful night…and to the millions of Americans who still believe in this “Shining City on a Hill”.

Americans deserve the truth.

What if Huma is in hiding because  these e-mails involve her, her family, and possible ties to what happened that horrible September Night at the US Embassy Compound in Benghazi, Libya?

We may never know everything that happened behind the scenes of Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State.

Mrs. Clinton, you should be ashamed to be running for the office of President of the United States.

…But, you’re not.

Now, it appears that all of your Machiavellian Political Machinations are coming back to bit you in your ample hindquarters.

No scheming politician ever deserved it more.

When you prepared to attack American Businessman and Entrepreneur, Donald J. Trump, by manufacturing a “Bimbo Eruption” you should have remembered that

People who live in Glass Houses should not throw stones.

Especially, when your Glass House resembled the Ice Palace in the Disney Animated Movie, “Frozen”.

You should have considered following the advice of the popular song in that movie and “Let It Go”.

Because, as you have now found out, The Lord has a sense of humor.

And, Karma is a…well…YOU should know.

Trump Vs. the Activist Media: Newt Lays a Verbal Smackdown on Megyn Kelly

October 26, 2016

14731251_10205385959927806_8491863673114560831_n

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I remember when the Fox News Channel first burst on the scene on October 7, 1996, setting the Liberal Establishment and the Main Stream Media on their heels, by offering “Fair and Balanced” News Reporting.

Nowadays, it appears that at least one of their Evening “Anchors” has joined the ranks of the Main Stream Media, and has gone from reporting the news, to attempting to shape it.

Breitbart.com reports that

Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File,” former House Speaker Newt Gingrich took on host Megyn Kelly for what Gingrich described to be a fascination with sex and that she didn’t care about policy.

Exchange as follows:

NEWT GINGRICH: Let me point out something to you: The three major networks spent 23 minutes attacking Donald Trump that night, and 57 seconds on Hillary Clinton’s secret speeches. You don’t think that is a scale of bias worthy of Pravda?

(CROSSTALK)

MEGYN KELLY: If Trump is a sexual predator, that is–

GINGRICH: He’s not a sexual predator. You can’t say that. You could not defend that statement.

 
KELLY: I have not taken a position on it.

GINGRICH: I’m sick and tired of people like you using inflammatory language that is not true.

KELLY: Excuse me, Mr. Speaker, you have no idea whether it is true or not. What we know–

GINGRICH: Neither do you.

KELLY: I’m not taking a position on it.

GINGRICH: Yes you are. When you used the words, you took a position. It is very unfair of you to do that, Megyn.

KELLY: Incorrect.

GINGRICH: That is exactly the bias people are upset by.

KELLY: I think that your defensiveness on this speaks volumes, sir.

GINGRICH: Let me suggest to you —

KELLY: No let me make my point. What I said if if Trump is a sexual predator, than it is a big story. And what we saw on that tape was Trump himself saying he liked to grab women by the genitals, and kiss them against their will. Then we saw 10 women come forward after he denied it at a debate … He denies it all, which is his right. We don’t know what the truth is. My point to you is, as a media story, we don’t get to say the 10 women are liars. We have to cover that story.

GINGRICH: Sure, so it took 23 minutes for the networks to cover that story. And Hillary Clinton had a secret speech in Brazil to a bank that pays her $225,000 saying that her dream is an open border where 600 million people could come to America, that is not worth covering?

Do you want me to go back to the tapes of your show recently? You are fascinated with sex and you don’t care about public policy.

KELLY: Me, really?

GINGRICH: That’s what I get out of watching you tonight.

KELLY: You know what, Mr. Speaker? I’m not fascinated by sex, but I am fascinated by the protection of women and understanding what we’re getting in the Oval Office.

GINGRICH: And therefore, we’re going to send Bill Clinton back to the East Wing, because you are worried about a sexual predator. Do you want to comment on whether the Clinton ticket has a relationship to a sexual predator?

KELLY: We on ‘The Kelly File’ have covered that story as well, sir.

GINGRICH: I want to hear you say the word. Say “Bill Clinton is a sexual predator.” I dare you. Say “Bill Clinton, sexual predator.”

KELLY: Mr. Speaker, we have covered that. We on “The Kelly File” have covered the Bill Clinton story as well. We’ve hosted Kathleen Willey. But he is not on the ticket.
Kelly ended the segment by telling Gingrich he needed to take his “anger issues” and “spend some time working on them.”

Ms. Kelly is not alone in her quest to bring down the Republican Candidate for President.

According to newsbusters.org,

In the twelve weeks since the party conventions concluded in late July, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has received significantly more broadcast network news coverage than his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, but nearly all of that coverage (91%) has been hostile, according to a new study by the Media Research Center (MRC).

In addition, the networks spent far more airtime focusing on the personal controversies involving Trump (440 minutes) than about similar controversies involving Clinton (185 minutes). Donald Trump’s treatment of women was given 102 minutes of evening news airtime, more than that allocated to discussing Clinton’s e-mail scandal (53 minutes) and the Clinton Foundation pay-for-play scandals (40 minutes) combined.

For this study, the MRC analyzed all 588 evening news stories that either discussed or mentioned the presidential campaign on the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts from July 29 through October 20 (including weekends). The networks devoted 1,191 minutes to the presidential campaign during this period, or nearly 29 percent of all news coverage.

Our measure of campaign spin was designed to isolate the networks’ own slant, not the back-and-forth of the campaign trail. Thus, our analysts ignored soundbites which merely showcased the traditional party line (Republicans supporting Trump and bashing Clinton, and vice versa), and instead tallied evaluative statements which imparted a clear positive or negative tone to the story. Such statements may have been presented as quotes from non-partisan talking heads such as experts or voters, quotes from partisans who broke ranks (Republicans attacking Trump or Democrats criticizing Clinton), or opinionated statements from the reporter themselves.

Additionally, we separated personal evaluations of each candidate from statements about their prospects in the campaign horse race (i.e., standings in the polls, chances to win, etc.). While such comments can have an effect on voters (creating a bandwagon effect for those seen as winning, or demoralizing the supports of those portrayed as losing), they are not “good press” or “bad press” as understood by media scholars as far back as Michael Robinson’s groundbreaking research on the 1980 presidential campaign.

The results show neither candidate was celebrated by the media (as Obama was in 2008), but network reporters went out of their way to hammer Trump day after day, while Clinton was largely out of their line of fire.

Our analysts found 184 opinionated statements about Hillary Clinton, split between 39 positive statements (21%) vs. 145 negative (79%). Those same broadcasts included more than three times as many opinionated statements about Trump, 91 percent of which (623) were negative vs. just nine percent positive (63).

Even when they were critical of Hillary Clinton — for concealing her pneumonia, for example, or mischaracterizing the FBI investigation of her e-mail server — network reporters always maintained a respectful tone in their coverage.

This was not the case with Trump, who was slammed as embodying “the politics of fear,” or a “dangerous” and “vulgar” “misogynistic bully” who had insulted vast swaths of the American electorate. Reporters also bluntly called out Trump for lying in his public remarks in a way they never did with Clinton, despite her own robust record of false statements.

As for those “horse race” assessments that we excluded from our “good press/bad press” measure, those were decidedly anti-Trump as well. Out of 569 such statements about the health or prospects of Trump’s campaign, 85% (486) were negative, vs. 15% (83) that were positive. For Clinton, the spin was reversed: out of 432 assessments of her status in the race, 62% (268) were positive, vs. just 38% (164) that were negative.

Thus, judging by their own coverage, network reporters have consistently painted Clinton as the most likely to win, but they have inexplicably spent most of their time trying to dismantle the underdog in the race while giving the frontrunner much lighter scrutiny.

Overall, the networks spent about 40 percent more airtime covering Trump (785 minutes) than they did on Clinton (478 minutes). Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson received just over nine minutes of coverage, while Green candidate Jill Stein and independent conservative candidate Evan McMullin each received less than one minute of airtime.

As noted above, more than half of Trump’s coverage (440 minutes, or 56%) focused on the various controversies surrounding his candidacy, while only about 38 percent of Clinton’s airtime was spent on her controversies (185 minutes).By far, the top topic since the party conventions has been the issue of Donald Trump’s treatment of women, especially the 2005 Access Hollywood tape (which received nearly 50 minutes of evening news coverage) and the unproven allegations from several women that he engaged in inappropriate conduct in the past (26 minutes).

Add it all up, and Trump’s alleged sexist behavior or rhetoric has totaled 102 minutes of news coverage since the conventions. In contrast, references to Bill Clinton’s past treatment of women, and Hillary Clinton’s role in covering up her husband’s wrongdoing, amounted to less than seven minutes of coverage during this same period, a roughly 15-to-1 disparity.

Other Trump controversies were given robust coverage: the issue of his tax returns (33 minutes), his concern that the November election could be “rigged” (27 minutes), and suggestions that Trump and his aides are too close to Putin’s Russia (22 minutes).

In contrast, controversies involving Hillary Clinton received far less attention. Her “basket of deplorables” comment received just seven minutes of total coverage, while barely two minutes (134 seconds) was spent talking about her handling of the 2012 attack in Benghazi when she was Secretary of State.

Bill Clinton’s crack that ObamaCare was a “crazy system” was limited to just 140 seconds of evening news coverage, even though it signaled the kind of intra-party split that would surely have received far more coverage if it had been a Republican vs. a Republican.

Just last week, a Quinnipiac poll found that more than half of all voters (55%) thought the media’s coverage had been biased against Trump. With coverage like this, the question is, what are the other 45 percent thinking?

Evidently, they’re not paying attention.

For years, the Main Stream Media has been in bed with corrupt politicians and those who walk roam the Halls of Power with impunity (Mr. Soros to the Courtesy Desk, please.)

While touting objectivity, they have often fallen way short of that goal.

The Media really came into its own during the 80’s, with the advent of Cable Television, the Iranian Hostage Crisis, and the ascension and election of President Ronald Wilson Reagan.

The advocacy of all things Liberal by every Cable News Channel, became very apparent, as they attacked the greatest president of this generation, mercilessly, giving no quarter.

I believe that Reagan’s election was a wake up call to the MSM. They realized that, if left to their own devices, the American Public would elect a Conservative as President, every time. And, they just couldn’t have that. They were already in too deep to their Democratic, Progressive Masters.

So, America’s Media forsook their objectivity, choosing to help to shape current events, instead of just reporting on them, in an effort to produce outcomes which would be most beneficial to the Progressive Cause.

The Fox News Channel filled a void that had been created by the Main Stream Media’s own biased hubris.

Later, after propping up Barack Hussein Obama and getting him re-elected, this hubris gave the Main Stream Media an exaggerated sense of self-importance, as to their role in our society.

Their Achilles’ Heel , the before-mentioned hubris, blinded them to the potential of the New Media…and, that has been their undoing.

As has been affirmed to me lately, during my surfing of the web, including Facebook Political Pages and websites, Modern American Liberals, including those in the Main Stream Media, constantly live in a state of denial.

They respond as if you have told them that you shot Ol’ Yeller, when you inform them that Liberalism is still the minority political belief in America, even (and especially) after the 7 1/2 year reign of King Barack The First.

This salient fact explains why CNN and MSNBC constantly trail Fox News in the television ratings polls.

It also explains their ongoing massive propping up through the use of blatant propaganda of the Presidential Campaign of Hillary Clinton.

Just like the cockamamie idea to allow biological men in women’s public restrooms, the idea of allowing a morally and ethically challenged congenital liar with obvious serious health issues, who is as far removed philosophically from the overwhelming majority of Americans, that she might as well be the President of China, XI Jinping’s Handmaiden, makes average Americas out here in America’s Heartland want to hurl.

Which, by the way, is quite evident when you compare actual images of the size of Donald J. Trump’s overflowing Campaign Rallies , numbering in the thousands, compared to the under-attended ones of Hillary Clinton, which are lucky to draw one hundred.

Principled reporters, such as the late Andrew Breitbart and Michelle Malkin, now working for Conservative Review, turned up the heat on the MSM, by providing an alternative source through which Americans can receive news, unfiltered by those in the Halls of Power.

Unfortunately for the MSM , as the last several months have shown, and as I have documented, Americans have become our own “reporters” thanks to the “New Media”. Americans are now living in a  time when the Main Stream Media’s blatant propaganda is no longer believed at face value, as the evidence which refutes it is appearing in the live videos and photographs being shared on Facebook and other Social Media.

And, like the little Dutch Boy, the MSM does not know which hole to plug, in the leaking dam, first.

In their frenzied desperate attempt to stop what now appears (judging from the size of his Campaign Rallies and the information gleaned from Early Voting across the country) to be the inevitability of a Trump Victory in November, the Main Stream Media has chosen to verify blatantly false Liberal Opinions as being “Facts”.

Megyn Kelly, since the Political Ascension of Donald J. Trump, has chosen to eschew the “Fair and Balanced” Reporting that vaulted Fox to the top of the Cable News Ratings, instead, opting to join the baying “newshounds” of the Main Stream Media in their quest to bring down the Republican Candidate by any means necessary.

Unfortunately for Ms. Kelly, her strategy has backfired on her miserably, costing her rating points and allowing Sean Hannity to take over the lead among Fox News’ Evening Programs.

Just like the Internet Trolls, who invade Facebook Political Pages and Political Websites, in order to disrupt conversation and call attention to themselves, the MSM, including Ms. Kelly as well, through the creation of their own facts, have permanently damaged their own credibility, quite probably beyond all repair.

Because, to put it quite simply, once you torque off the American Public, you never get them back.

Just ask the Dixie Chicks.

Campaign 2016: Of Campaign Rallies, Kindness, and Character

October 25, 2016

mini-trump-3

Yesterday was my “Saturday”, as I work at my present job from Wednesday – Sunday.

While I was off, I was following on Facebook the live video of the thousands of Americans lining up to get in to be a part of Republican Presidential Candidate Donald J. Trump’s Campaign Rally, held last night in Tampa, Florida.

That got me to thinking…about the image of Trump as a horrible human being that the Main Stream Media has been desperately trying to portray, in collusion with Democrat Candidate Hillary Clinton’s Campaign Staff and the Democratic Party, a sickening propaganda plot that the WikiLeaks E-mail Leaks has made public.

At the same time that Trump and his VP Candidate, Mike Pence, are drawing tens of thousands to their Campaign Rallies, Clinton and her VP Candidate, Tim Kaine, are having difficulty filling high school gymnasiums.

It has been documented that Kaine only drew 30 people to a Campaign Rally yesterday.

Why is that?

There is an old adage that states that

Beauty is only skin deep, but ugly goes to the bone.

In the case of the Democratic Presidential Candidate, that old adage is an understatement.

Deroy Murdock writes for National Review Online that

Hillary routinely bullied her bodyguards — and with the worst language possible.

Hillary Clinton’s “treatment of DS [Department of State] agents on her protective detail was so contemptuous that many of them sought reassignment or employment elsewhere,” according to a just-released summary of an FBI interview with a former State Department official. “Prior to CLINTON’s tenure, being an agent on the Secretary of State’s protective detail was seen as an honor and privilege reserved for senior agents. However, by the end of CLINTON’s tenure, it was staffed largely with new agents because it was difficult to find senior agents willing to work for her.”

Clinton’s State Department agents are hardly the first to complain about her bullying.

She derives pleasure from lording over other people who cannot do anything about it and who are less powerful than she is,” author Ronald Kessler told Newsmax TV’s J. D. Hayworth.

In fact, Clinton’s well-documented history of profane, unhinged outbursts against those who work for her spans decades.

While Clinton’s vulgarity is presented here in relatively family-friendly form, fill in the blanks and imagine the pain that this woman inflicted when she uttered these words.

 “I’m not voting for Clinton,” Air Force Staff Sergeant Eric Bonner posted on Facebook in July.

“It’s because she actually talked to me once. Almost a sentence,” wrote the Air Force K-9 handler. “I got to do a few details involving Distinguished Visitors.”

“One of my last details was for Hillary when she was Secretary of State,” Bonner continued. “I helped with sweeps of her DV quarters and staff vehicles. Her words to me?”

According to Bonner, Clinton told him, “Get that f***ing dog away from me.”

“Then she turns to her security detail and berates them up and down about why that animal was in her quarters,” Bonner added. “For the next 20 minutes, while I sit there waiting to be released, she lays into her detail, slamming the door in their faces when she’s done. The Detail lead walks over, apologizes, and releases me. I apologize to him for getting him in trouble. His words, ‘Happens every day, Brother.’”

“Hillary doesn’t care about anyone but Hillary.”

“Stay the f*** back, stay the f*** away from me!” the then-–First Lady screamed at her Secret Service agents. “Don’t come within ten yards of me, or else! Just f***ing do as I say, okay!!?” Clinton demanded, according to former FBI agent Gary Aldrich’s Unlimited Access, page 139.

“If you want to remain on this detail, get your f***ing ass over here and grab those bags!” Hillary yelled at a Secret Service agent, as Joyce Milton reported in The First Partner, page 259. The officer explained in vain that he preferred to keep his hands free, in case a threat arose.

“Good morning, ma’am,” a uniformed Secret Service officer once greeted Hillary Clinton. “F*** off!” she replied, as Ronald Kessler documented in First Family Detail, page 16.

“Put this back on the ground!” Hillary Clinton screamed at the pilot of presidential helicopter Marine One. “I left my sunglasses in the limo. I need my sunglasses! We need to go back!” Clinton so abused the chopper’s crew that they christened it Broomstick One.

Also in Dereliction of Duty, its author — Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Robert “Buzz” Patterson (Ret.), who carried the “nuclear football” — recalled hearing “volleys of expletives” erupting from Hillary’s mouth. He also lamented “the Nazi-like edge that emerged when she was around.”

“Where is the goddam f***ing flag? I want the goddam f***ing flag up every f***ing morning at f***ing sunrise,” Hillary snapped at state trooper Larry Patterson at the Arkansas governor’s mansion on Labor Day 1991, according to Ronald Kessler’s Inside the White House, page 246.

“Good morning,” an Arkansas state trooper said to Clinton, according to American Evita, by Christopher Andersen, a former contributing editor with Time magazine.

“F*** off!” Hillary told him and his fellow bodyguards. “It’s enough I have to see you s***-kickers every day! I’m not going to talk to you, too! Just do your goddam job and keep your mouth shut.”

If this is how Hillary Clinton handles those who have stood ready to take bullets for her, how would she treat 325 million everyday Americans?

Good Question.

I can hear the cries of the MSM-believing Hillary Sycophants now:

But…but Trump is the monster!!! He assaults women, maims puppies, and pulls wings off of flies!

Yeah, right.

They don’t refer to Pajama Boy and his family as “Low Information Voters” for nothing.

In November of 2015, the Independent Journal Review posted the following article…

Since Donald Trump announced he was running for president, he has seen no shortage of the media spotlight.
But one thing that fails to receive coverage: how Trump has touched the lives of others.

Here are 5 acts of kindness that reveal there’s more to the billionaire than just his big celebrity persona.

1. The time he gave sanctuary to Grammy Award winning singer Jennifer Hudson after three of her family members were murdered:
When Hudson’s mother, brother and nephew were gunned down in Chicago, she put everything on hold for a while. She stayed at Trump Tower to grieve, where The Donald didn’t charge her a dime and also provided security for her and a few of her family members.

2. Airlines wouldn’t accommodate a boy who had serious medical issues, so Trump offered his jet to help:
Three-year-old Andrew Ten needed to go to New York to receive some special medical attention. But there was one big problem: The airlines refused to board him because Ten required several different pieces of medical equipment on the flight. Ten’s parents put in a call to Trump, who then dispatched his private jet to meet their pressing needs.

Ten’s father said of Trump:

“He is a good man. He has three children of his own and he knows what being a parent is all about.”

3. He helped save a family’s working farm that was going into foreclosure:
In 1986, Annabell Hill was in danger of losing her family farm. On top of that, her husband had just committed suicide hoping that his life insurance policy would cover the remaining balance that they owed. When Trump saw her tragic story, he decided to do something about it.

According to the New York Times:

Donald Trump, the New York real estate tycoon, helped prevent foreclosure today on a family farm whose owner had committed suicide to try to save his land.

Mrs. Hill proposed to bank officials that the land be sold privately so she could keep some of the 705 acres. Parts of the farm have been in the Hill family for three generations.

4. After Sergeant Andrew Tahmooressi was released from a prison in Mexico, The Donald sent him a big check to help get him back on his feet:
Tahmooressi spent seven months in a Mexican prison. During that time, he was beaten and even chained to a bed. When he was released, Trump sent him a check for twenty five thousand dollars.

5. What Trump did for a bus driver who helped save a woman from jumping off a bridge:
Darnell Barton was driving his bus across a bridge when he spotted a woman on the other side of railing, staring down at the traffic below. Barton stopped the bus and approached the woman. After one of his passengers explained they didn’t want to “see someone die,” he managed to put his arm around her and she agreed to come to the other side of the bridge.

After hearing about what Barton did, The Donald sent him ten thousand dollars.

Trump said:

“I thought that was so beautiful to see. I think he is a great guy with an amazing heart and I said that man should be rewarded.

Clearly, Donald Trump isn’t just a good businessman, he’s a Good Samaritan, too.

There are several other stories of Trump’s kindness that have been showcased on Facebook and the rest of the “New Media” during this campaign, just as the truth concerning the abhorrent personality of Hillary Clinton has become very familiar to average Americans.

As the WikiLeaks E-mails have confirmed, the attacks that have been launched against Trump over the past several months, were patiently and meticulously planned months in advance by Clinton, her Campaign Manager John Podesta, Democratic Party Operatives, and the sycophantic Main Stream Media, in an effort to overcome Trump’s natural charisma and Clinton’s horrible personality.

However, “the best laid plans of mice and men oft’ times go awry.”

Their manufactured Bimbo Eruption has not changed the minds of average American Voters

Neither have their manufactured National Push Polls, which intentionally include a bigger polling sample of Democrats than Republicans.

Why?

There is a famous quote that states (and I paraphrase) that

“Character” is what you do when no one is watching.”

Yes, Trump can be rude.

But, I agree with a voter who said in a Yahoo News Comments Section after watching one of the Presidential Debates that Trump reminded him of a doctor with no bedside manner. He tells you that you need to lose 100 pounds and stop smoking. You’re offended, you’re angry, you come up with 10 reasons why he’s crazy…and then you finally realize that he’s the only one telling you the truth.

And, boys and girls, that is why Trump is surging and Hillary is tanking.

You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.-  Abraham Lincoln

Filed Under “I Hate It When I’m Right”: New Wikileak Podesta E-mail Reveals Clinton Campaign Behind Democrat-Weighted National Push Polls

October 24, 2016

1984-2016-600-a-ci

It was reported this weekend by the folks over at the Zero Hedge Blog, that the current batch of Wikileak E-mails by Clinton Campaign Manager and Supreme Lackey John Podesta, contained a very interesting e-mail from the Atlas Project, suggesting how to “maximize” the campaign’s polling.

What is “The Atlas Project”, you ask?

Well…per discoverthenetworks.org,

Founded in 2007 by Steve Rosenthal, Mary Beth Cahill, and Michael Whouley, the Atlas Project (AP) describes itself as a private consulting firm “committed to the success of the progressive movement.” In an effort to help leftist political candidates win their respective elections, AP “conducts in-depth analysis of collected and preserved campaign-related information in key states” to enable its clients – mostly Democrats – to “make better informed data-driven decisions.” AP works in partnership with the National Committee for an Effective Congress (NCEC), which furnishes the Atlas staff with much of the information upon which its analyses and recommendations are based.

To plan a successful campaign for each of its clients, AP considers such variables as:

  • the degree of cable and satellite TV penetration in the area where political advertising will be run

  • what type of direct-mail pieces will most effectively influence voters in the targeted area

  • the findings of public and internal polling on issues important to votersdemographics of the targeted population (race, ethnicity, age, occupation, income, level of education, political affiliations, etc.)

  • how state and local elected officials, labor leaders, and political operatives might be able to help promote AP’s candidate

  • how to register as many voters as possible prior to registration deadlines in the targeted area

  • how to take advantage of absentee- and early-voting options, where applicableAtlas Project clients include not only individual candidates for political office, but also some of the most prominent and powerful leftist organizations in the United States.

Here is the e-mail in question…

Hey, when can we meet? I also want to get your Atlas folks to recommend oversamples for our polling before we start in February. By market, regions, etc. I want to get this all compiled into one set of recommendations so we can maximize what we get out of our media polling. -Tom [***courtesy of wikileaks.org] 

If you are like me, you grew up hearing that there are 3 types of lies in this world.

Little White Lies: I have always believed that these are “plain, old” lies, like those told in the heat of the moment to protect yourself when you are caught red-handed or, you can’t think of anything else to buttress your argument. I have been trying to think of some examples of just a plain, old lie.

I suppose that a good example of a lie would be : “Sarah Palin said ‘I can see Russia from my house.”

That was, unfortunately, a pretty effective lie. It was actually, now irrelevant, comedienne Tina Fey, of Saturday Night Live and 30 rock mediocre fame, who uttered those words, during a SNL Skit. I say former, because her attempts at being a movie star have both bombed bigger than Hiroshima. Payback’s a …well…you know.

Ms. Fey’s impersonation was grabbed by the Democratic Party, and all of its minions, and used to further their meme that Gov. Palin was nothing by a stupid Alaskan Snowbilly.

Of course, informed Americans know that the Left’s stereotype of the Arctic Fox is about as far from the truth as Michael Moore is from the Jenny Craig Diet Plan. Unfortunately though, low information voters (You know…pookie and ‘dem) lapped the false meme up like a kitten laps up a bowl of milk, thanks to the 24/7 barrage of propaganda supplied by the Main Stream Media, and Vichy Republicans, who did not like her because she was an outsider from Flyover Country. It never mattered that she ran the largest state in the nation, and actually ran it in the black. Oh, no. That information was never emphasized by Obama’s Propaganda Platoon: the Main Stream Media, Organizing for Obama,and Hollyweird.

This little lie, as they always do, led to bigger lies, once Obama ascended to the Throne of the Regime.

Bald-faced lies: These are lies, which a professional prevaricator, like Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm) can speak without blinking an eye, while smiling at the camera with all the warmth and sincerity of Robert Young in Father Knows Best. (Look it up, kids)

Here are some of the lies which The Lightbringer and his Administrative Angels have laid on us:

If the Supreme Court throws out the federal health care law, it “would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress.”

“For the first time since 1990, American manufacturers are creating new jobs.”“Preventive care … saves money, for families, for businesses, for government, for everybody.”

“Thirty million Americans, including a lot of people in Florida, are going to be able to get healthcare next year because of that law.”

Obama- “I made a bunch of these promises during the campaign. … We’ve got about 60 percent done in three years.”

Obama Admin.- Under President Barack Obama, the United States has “doubled our exports.”

The president’s proposed budget “will help reduce the deficit by $400 billion over the next decade to the lowest level since Dwight Eisenhower was president.”

About the Sequester:

“If the sequester hits, federal prosecutors will have to “let criminals go.”

“Federally assisted programs like Meals on Wheels would be able to serve 4 million fewer meals to seniors.”

“There are literally teachers now who are getting pink slips” because of sequestration.

“70,000 young children would be kicked off Head Start” –

“Up to 70,000 children would lose access to Head Start and early Head Start services.”

This list only includes the lies that Barack Hussein Obama told up to 2013. If I had listed all of his lies to date , this would not simply be an article anymore, it would rival the Encyclopedia Britannica in terms of depth and volume.

Statistics: Back during the Clinton Administration, Bubba never made a decision without checking the poll numbers on the subject beforehand. During Obama’s First and now, Second Terms, the Pollsters are blatantly weighting their poll samples, both ideologically and geographically, to make sure they reflect the results that this Administration, the Democratic Party, and their puppet masters, like Mr. Soros, want to hear.And, to ensure that Hillary Clinton wins the presidency.

A great example of that strategy is “gay marriage”. If you looked at all the Polls, and listen to all of the Liberal Talking Heads on the cable news channels discussing them, you would think that America is 99.98% behind LeRoy and Festus gettin’ hitched. However, when you take a look at a map showing the results of state referendums on the subject, you see that while 9 Northern States approved it, 30 other states stood firmly against changing the definition of marriage, refusing to treat a sexual preference as a civil right.

Polls are one of the ways in which Liberals and reality travel on two divergent paths. Too much weed during their wonder years is another reason, but, that’s a subject for another blog.

Scheming Progressives figured out a long time ago that because low information voters tend to believe every poll they see, and they do not take the time to look at the sampling, polls are a very effective tool with which to sway the uninformed masses.

Notice that the breakdown of the political parties of those registered voters involved in National Polls conducted by Liberal Organizations and the Main Stream Media (but, I repeat myself) is always left out.

As has been demonstrated in the past with a detailed sampling of other national polls, and now substantiated by the above e-mail, the accepted practice  in modern poll conducting is to oversample national polls with Democrats, in order to discourage average Americans from voting.

That being said, I, among the overwhelming majority of average Americans here in the Heartland believe Trump is actually ahead, despite what Liberals and their minions in the Main Stream Media want us to believe.

However, Trump still needs all Americans with a conscience on board, in order to secure a victory on November 8 and to defeat a candidate who will most surely continue Barack Hussein Obama’s Presidency, which has taken this nations straight to the edge of a bottomless abyss.

So, there you have it.

One of America’s two main political parties, powered by, as Gallup Polls continue to show, the minority political ideology known as Progressivism or Liberalism, has been engaged for decades in a political strategy to radically change American values and culture, through a propaganda campaign of lies, one more outrageous than the last, spoken and spread, until citizens believe them to be the truth.

Wow. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it? What was that guy’s name? You know…the one with the funny mustache.

The Final Debate: Trump’s “Election Results” Answer…Why He Was Right

October 20, 2016

th-78Judging from the reaction of average Americans on the “New (Social) Media” this morning, Donald J. Trump won last night’s Final Presidential Debate, at times driving his opponent, Hillary Clinton, to the verge of having a good old-fashioned hissy fit (as we refer to an “out-of-body experience” down here in Dixie).

However, all that you are going to hear from Hillary’s Fan Base, the Main Stream Media, today is that Trump said that he may not accept the Election Results on the night of November 8th at face value.

ABC News reports that

When Donald Trump was asked at the third and final presidential debate if he will accept the outcome of the election, and if he loses, concede to the winner, the real estate mogul refused to say.”I will tell you at the time,” said Trump, who has frequently discussed voter fraud and a “rigged” system.

“I’ll keep you in suspense, okay?” Trump told moderator Chris Wallace.

Hillary Clinton responded, “That’s horrifying.”

Trump had just earlier called the election “rigged.”

“She’s guilty of a very, very serious crime,” Trump said of Clinton. “She should not be allowed to run. And just in that respect I say it’s rigged.”

Clinton said, “Every time Donald thinks things are not going in his direction, he claims whatever it is, is rigged against him… There was even a time when he didn’t get an Emmy for his TV program three years in a row and he started tweeting that the Emmys were rigged.”

Trump responded, “Should have gotten it.”

After the debate, Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway said of Trump refusing to say whether he would accept the results, “He said he’s going to take a look at the results.”

“Remember, Al Gore did concede,” Conway told ABC News’ Tom Llamas. “He conceded to Governor George W. Bush and then called and rejected the concession and went on to contest the results. It went all the way to the Supreme Court. Election day was early November. Maybe November 6 that year. And that case was decided on December 12.”

When Llamas asked Conway if she thought that was responsible for the democracy, she responded, “I think the most responsible thing that Donald Trump has done for democracy, frankly, was to run in the first place.”

“And I credit him tremendously for making that sacrifice, he and his family. Because a lot of people have run in politics, Tom, for fame or fortune or status, prestige. He had all of that,” Conway said. “And he sacrificed a great deal of that to do this. And the greatest gift he’s given to democracy is really to show people who have begged for years to have an outsider to disrupt the system to have somebody just come and turn the tables over completely. He was willing to do it.”

Sean Spicer, the Republican National Committee’s communications director, told ABC News after the debate that Trump will “accept the results of the election. One hundred percent.”

“I think right now he’s very concerned about the bias that exists in the media,” Spicer said. “I think he wants to make sure people … are focused on the election. But he will accept the results. No question about it.”

“He’s going to win this election soundly,” Spicer said, “And this won’t be an issue.”

Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta said after the debate that Trump “made a tremendous mistake” by refusing to say if he’d accept the outcome.

As my precocious 8-year old Grandson would say,

REALLY, Grandpa?

Trump has every right to be wary.

In a post that I wrote back on July 7, 2015, titled, “Hillary Goes on the Warpath Against Voter ID. Dead Voter Bloc Applauds.”, I cited the following story from Newsmax.com, involving last night’s Presidential Debate Loser, Hillary Clinton…

Ohio Gov. John Kasich accused Hillary Clinton of “demagoguery” Friday over a lawsuit filed against his state’s voting rules, saying she should pick on another state, such as her own, where voters have far fewer days to cast a ballot.

“If she wants to sue somebody, let them sue New York,” Kasich told Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” program. “We have 27 days of voting. In New York, the only voting that occurs is on Election Day. What is she talking about?”

On Thursday in Houston, Clinton accused potential Republican presidential rivals Jeb Bush, Scott Walker, Chris Christie and Rick Perry of being governors in states that have passed laws making it more difficult for Americans to vote.

She called them members of a GOP group that have cut the numbers of days set aside for early voting and have demanded voter ID laws.

Kasich’s state of Ohio, meanwhile, was named along with Walker’s Wisconsin by Democrats in a legal challenge over voting changes. While Clinton’s campaign is not officially involved in the lawsuits, one of the attorneys involved is Marc Elias, her campaign’s general counsel.

Kasich said Friday that he likes Clinton personally, as she has been kind to him, “but the idea that we are going to divide Americans and use demagoguery, I don’t like it.”

He further called the idea of coming into Ohio and saying the state is trying to suppress the vote “silliness.”

“Don’t be running around the country dividing Americans,” said Kasich. “Don’t come in and say we are trying to keep people from voting when her own state has less opportunity for voting. She is going to sue my state? That’s just silly.”

Ohio has multiple days for voting, Kasich again pointed out, adding: “In New York, where she is from, they have one day. Why don’t you take care of business at home before you run around the country using these demagogic statement that we don’t want people to vote?”

Since April of 2010, when I began my daily cathartic exercise of chronicling American Politics, Social Issues, and our Culture, I have documented numerous instances of chicanery involving our elections, both local and national, from the rise and fall of ACORN, the corrupt entity responsible for the “ground game” during the 2008 election of Barack Hussein Obama to abnormalities found in the aftermath of his re-election in 2012, where several Democratically controlled counties’ populations voted 100% for “The Lightbringer.

I know that I have not been alone in noticing the out-of-control voter fraud that has been the rule rather than the exception in recent national elections, and which has been the exclusive stock in trade of the Democratic Party.

Rather than roll over and play dead (which will be the status of some of the Democratic Voters “casting their votes” on November 8th), as the “genteel” Vichy Republicans have in the past, Trump instead last night, chose to issue an overt warning that he will be watching the polls for the Political Chicanery that has become second nature to the Modern Far left Democratic Party.

I personally don’t care if the worshipers of the Washingtonian Status Quo on both sides of the Political Aisle were offended by Trump’s reluctance to accept the Election Results at face value.

As proven in National Surveys, the vast majority of average Americans don’t trust “Crooked Hillary”, either.

Last Chance in Vegas: The Final 2016 Presidential Debate (A KJ Analysis)

October 19, 2016

scorched-earth-nrd-600

Tonight, the two political candidates who actually have a chance to win the Presidency of the United States of America will participate in one final debate to be held in the city of Las Vegas, Nevada.

This morning, the following assessment of that debate appeared in the Las Vegas Review Journal, written by Ben Botkin…

The final round for Hillary Clinton vs. Donald Trump will unfold in Las Vegas, a city known for high-stakes wagers.

The third of three presidential debates will be the last chance for either candidate to deliver a knockout blow in front of a large prime-time audience before the Nov. 8 election.

Wednesday’s 90-minute debate at UNLV, if it’s anything like the first two, will be a no-holds-barred event that takes the definition of political blood sport to a new level.

It will give Trump, the Republican nominee, a chance to try turning around his political fortunes, particularly in key battleground states such as Nevada.

It will give Clinton, the Democratic nominee, a chance to further solidify her lead in national polls.

RAUCOUS, WILD EXPECTATIONS

In the second debate, Trump called Clinton the “devil” and warned that a Trump-led White House could lead to her going to jail. Clinton supporters expect more of the same Wednesday.

“The first two debates were just warm-ups for what might be the most raucous and wild debate in American history,” said Jake Thompson, an associate professor and debate coach at UNLV.

Thompson said Trump didn’t appear prepared in the first two debates, and Clinton “faces a very difficult challenge in debating Donald Trump in that he’s an unpredictable candidate to debate against.”

Trump will enter the stage without the support of some prominent GOP leaders who have distanced themselves from the real estate mogul.

“He has adopted a scorched-earth strategy,” said Erik Hertzik, chairman of the political science department at the University of Nevada, Reno. “Unrepentant, in your face, willing to take on anybody, and that includes the elected GOP leadership. He’s gone big-time after (House Speaker) Paul Ryan and the Republican establishment.

“I think he’ll come out guns blazing against Bill Clinton and his infidelity,” Herzik said. “I don’t think that will be very effective.”

It’s an approach that endears Trump to his base of support but runs the risk of alienating undecided voters in Nevada and across the nation, political observers say.

 
“‘I’m going to lock you up’ is an applause line for his base,” Herzik said, referring to Trump’s warning to Clinton that she risks jail if he’s elected. “But for many that watch, this includes Republicans and independents and Democrats, it’s like wait a minute, that’s what third-world countries do.”

Trump’s supporters are confident the debate can showcase their candidate favorably.

Michael McDonald, chairman of the Nevada Republican Party, said the debate moderator, Chris Wallace of Fox News, will ensure the debate is fair.

“There’s a lot at stake here in Nevada,” McDonald said. “I think that both candidates will be at the top of their game. I know for a fact Mr. Trump is preparing.”

McDonald said Trump can prevail in a debate that’s focused on issues, such as national security and bringing jobs to the U.S. rather than on tabloid-style news.

“I think when you get down to it, you either have an intelligent debate or you have a National Enquirer debate,” McDonald said, invoking the name of a tabloid known for salacious news stories.

DEMOCRATS: LOOK FOR SUBSTANCE

Roberta Lange, chairwoman of the Nevada State Democratic Party, said the debate will help build enthusiasm in advance of early voting, which starts Saturday in Nevada.

Clinton will be able to talk about her experience, plans for job creation and immigration reform, Lange said.

“If you want substance,” Lange said, “you should be looking to Hillary Clinton because she will be bringing substance to the floor.”

The debate’s tentative list of topics includes fitness for president, immigration, the economy, debt and entitlements, the Supreme Court and foreign hot spots.

With almost three weeks to go before Election Day, it’s difficult to make predictions.

The election is volatile, and plenty still could happen to turn the tide in either direction, said Barry Jackson, a strategic adviser at Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, a national law firm. Jackson’s career includes stints as a director of strategic initiatives in the White House during the George W. Bush administration and chief of staff for Republican former House Speaker John Boehner.

“None of us know how this is going to turn out,” said Jackson.

Jackson plans to participate in a panel discussion in Las Vegas on Thursday after the debate with a colleague at the firm, former U.S. Sen. Mark Begich, D-Alaska.

“I think both candidates need to come knowing they’re going after the 10, 12, 13 percent” of voters who are undecided, Begich said.

In Clinton’s case, she needs to show compassion and connect with people, he said. In Trump’s case, the GOP nominee needs to demonstrate substance, he said.

If anything, the debate will be unconventional. Part of that is because Trump isn’t an elected official with a policy record to scrutinize. That leaves reporters with his personal life, business dealings and comments he has made on “The Howard Stern Show” in the 1990s.

HOPE AMONG DEBATERS

The strangeness of the election gives debate professionals hope that future presidential debates — beyond 2016 — will reflect the values of their trade.

“My earnest hope is that this is not the new normal,” Thompson said. “I think that in this election cycle we have a very odd election cycle.”

For a university debate team, competitors are expected to show proper decorum, Thompson said.

“We have rules on my debate team, and those rules call for respecting opponents and treating the institution of debate with respect, and it appears there is a distinct lack of respect between these two candidates,” Thompson said.

Threats to jail Clinton and assertions that the election is rigged all run counter to the American value of a peaceful transition of power, Thompson said.

That doesn’t mean, however, that the solution is to have fewer presidential debates.

“The only way to repudiate claims that the election is rigged or other silliness like that is a strong and ringing endorsement of our democratic traditions,” Thompson said.

Actually, “Perfesser”, we’re a Constitutional Republic.

Evidently, the “Perfesser” has not been paying attention to the news, or else he would see that evidence of planned voter fraud is already showing up in several states.

Also, about that “proper decorum” thingy…

The “Perfesser” must not have been watching the Vice-Presidential Debate in 2012, When “Crazy Uncle” Joe Biden acted like a madman, talking over Paul Ryan and showing his posterior for the entire debate.

Also, “Perfesser”, is it proper decorum to have someone associated with your “Foundation” come forward after 30 years to accuse your opponent of “improper sexual behavior”?

But, I digress…

This election has boiled down to a choice between The Queen of Mean, Hillary Clinton, the wife of a Former President, who believes that she MUST be elected President, simply because it is HER TURN and Donald J. Trump, an American Entrepreneur, Billionaire, and Citizen Statesman, who genuinely LOVES America and her people, instead of viewing us all as racist, misogynist, xenophobes.

And, therein lies the secret of Donald J. Trump’s successful campaign for the Republican Presidential Nomination and, despite what the Democrat-weighted national polls say, being a hair’s breath away from becoming President of the United States of America.

What Trump did, with his refusal earlier in the campaign to “act more presidential”, was to implement a strategy.

Trump has always been a “people person”.

That is the reason that, when he was still a contributor to Fox News, he would speak to everyone in the building, from the maintenance crew, on up the ladder.

As Sam Walton, the Founder of Walmart, knew, you don’t inspire people by acting imperious and above it all.

“Mr. Sam”, until his health would no longer allow him to do so, would travel to Walmart Stores in his old pickup truck, with a tie and a baseball cap on, visiting the employees, in order to find out how his stores were doing.

He knew that the only was to be successful and to stay in touch with the public, was to be out among them, and speak to them honestly and directly, as one would speak to a friend.

The Political Establishment, of both parties, lost that concept, a long time ago.

Bypassing the borders to communication, historically determined by both political parties and the Main Stream Media, is a concept which I first witnessed being employed by a Presidential Candidate in the 1980 Presidential Election, named Ronald Wilson Reagan.

While I am not comparing the two, I am noting that this strategy has proved and is proving effective, in the case of both Presidential Candidates.

As the polls show, and will continue to show, Trump has struck a resonant chord in the hearts of Average Americans, living here in the part of America, which the snobbish Political Elites refer to as “Flyover Country”, but which we refer to as “America’s Heartland”, or, quite simply, “HOME”.

Why is Donald J. Trump so popular with average Americans?

The reason is very simple: WE’RE ANGRY.

Our palpable anger is one which has been building since January of 2009, when a Lightweight, who has as much in common with average Americans as a Martian would, was inaugurated as President of the United States of America.

That anger, a result of his anti-American actions and resulting policies, which have affected Americans’ daily lives, has been exacerbated by the Republican Elite, who, in their desire to “reach across the aisle” and “go along to get along”, have distanced themselves from those who elected them to Congress in the first place.

Meanwhile, average Americans, like you and me, remain mired up to our necks in an abysmal swamp of bills and taxes, living paycheck-to-paycheck, afraid to make a move, for fearing of drowning in an ocean of debt.

Seemingly forgotten, in all of the forgotten promises, made by Barack Hussein Obama, are the almost 95 million Americans, who are no longer, largely through no fault of their own, participating in our Workforce.

You want to talk about anger and frustration?

Try looking for work, when you are over 55 years of age.

Anger has played an important part in the forging of this great country, which will be lucky to survive Obama’s final year in office.

It was anger that formed our country….an anger over being held captive to “Taxation Without Representation”…an anger which, as a prime example of history repeating itself, Americans are experiencing, even as I type this blog.

It is this anger, which has propelled Donald J. Trump to this moment…and those who prefer the Washingtonian Status Quo know it.

That is why the Republican Establishment, at least some of them, have hitched a ride on “The Trump Train”.

If they had not accepted the reality of his Primary Victory, and the fact that Americans are angry, they would have gone down to defeat again in 2016.

They would have never achieved victory by once again trying to push the Jello of “Liberal Moderation” up a hill.

Hence, the failed campaign of Jeb! Bush.

In summation, the American people are tired of Political Correctness and anti-American political expediencies being forced down our throats by both political parties and trumpeted by their lackeys in the Main Stream Media.

Donald Trump, for all of his brashness and braggadocio, is a breath of free air and, quite frankly an anomaly. He’s not a professional politician. He is a businessman who wants to become a public servant.

Does Donald J. Trump need to “tone it down” in this Final Debate, in terms of speaking “truth to power”?

Judging from the water cooler talk here in Realityville, after he cleaned Hillary’s clock in the last debate , NO.

Only if he wants to sound like a Professional Politician.

The stark reality is the fact that the reason that he will once again take the National Stage in a Presidential Debate tonight is that Americans have had our fill of Professional Politicians, their aloofness, failed promises, and their poor performance in office.

Just like Hillary Clinton’s.

Until He Comes,
