The Republican Baseball Team Practice Shooting and The Consequences of Hateful Rhetoric, Propaganda, and Fake News

June 15, 2017

shot-gop-scalise

When I woke up yesterday morning, it seemed as if it was going to be just another day.

Then I turned on Fox and Friends.

Unfolding before my eyes was the unthinkable…

There had been a mass shooting at the practice field of the Republican Congressional Baseball Team, as they got ready for the annual Congressional Baseball Game benefitting the Boys and Girls Clubs of America.

At first, I thought that it was another “Lone Wolf Homegrown Radical Islamic Terrorist”.

Boy, was I wrong.

Last night, after getting home from work, I found out additional details about the horrible attack and the fact that Representative Steve Scalise remained in critical condition.

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise remains in critical condition and needs further surgery after he was shot Wednesday during a GOP baseball practice in Alexandria, Va., according to the hospital where he is being treated. 

MedStar Washington Hospital said in a statement late Wednesday that Scalise was shot once in the left hip. 

“The bullet travelled across his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs, and causing severe bleeding,” the statement said. “He underwent immediate surgery, and an additional procedure to stop bleeding. He has received multiple units of blood transfusion.”

Scalise was one of four people shot by James T. Hodgkinson as they prepared for Thursday’s Congressional Baseball Game between the Republicans and Democrats.

“I’ve seen him a couple of times like in the Superdome and I often wondered, ‘Well, why in the hell did he have all those security people with him?” Louisiana Senate President John Alario said.

“I see why now,” Alario added. “It was an abundance of caution. I’m glad they did it.”

The psychopath who did this was not Islamic, nor was he some sort of “gun nut” from the Heartland.

He was a Liberal.

Per thesmokinggun.com

The gunman who opened fire this morning (Wednesday) on Republican congressmen and staffers recently declared in a Facebook post that, “It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co.”The accused shooter, James T. Hodgkinson, 66, posted a link to a Change.org petition in late-March that included the notation that, “Trump is a Traitor. Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy. It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co.”

Hodgkinson’s Facebook page includes numerous photos of Senator Bernie Sanders, whom Hodgkinson appears to have strongly supported during the 2016 Democratic presidential primary. In posts last August, Hodgkinson wrote, “I want Bernie to Win the White House” and “Bernie is a Progressive, while Hillary is Republican Lite.”

In a statement, Sanders said that he had been informed that Hodgkinson “apparently volunteered on my presidential campaign,” adding that, “I am sickened by this despicable act…Violence of any kind is unacceptable in our society and I condemn this action in the strongest possible terms.”

According to Hodgkinson’s Facebook page, he is a member of numerous left-leaning online groups, including The Road To Hell Is Paved With Republicans; Rachel Maddow For President 2020; Sanders For President 2020; Terminate The Republican Party; and Donald Trump is not my President.

Hodgkinson, a Belleville, Illinois resident, was killed when police returned fire this morning.

Even since Donald J. Trump was elected President, there has been an outpouring of anger, rage, and all-consuming hatred by the American Left that has dwarfed any political reaction that I have ever borne witness to in my 58 years on God’s Green Earth.

Some of it has indeed been staged in “Astroturf” protests, funded by George Soros and his Open Society Institute.

The rest of the over-the-top hatred can been found on the Internet, in the comment sections of Political Websites and on Facebook in individual Newsfeeds and on Political Pages, such as the ones mentioned in the Smoking Gun article.

There is a total divided, rancid political atmosphere in America, which has been steadily growing in strength and oppression for several decades.

Perhaps it is due to a coarsening in our society.

Perhaps it is due to children not receiving instruction “in the way in which they should go”.

Or, just perhaps, it is the fault of a political ideology which has foresworn the patriotism of their forefathers in order to embrace the radical socialism of Marx and Alinsky.

Now, most of the Far Left nut jobs that you run into on the Internet and on Facebook Political Pages would not go out and shoot someone. That would require them to be motivated enough to leave their Mom’s Basement and actually stand up to someone in the real world.

However, this Liberal nut job was different.

He actually had worked for a living.

However, like those Internet Trolls which I have been speaking of, this psychopath became totally immersed in the anti-Trump hatred being championed and disseminated through not only the Main Stream Media, but the Social Media, as well.

Being an unstable person to begin with, all of this hateful rhetoric led him to take violent action, doing irreparable harm.

Liberals cannot blame Booosh! for the horrors of yesterday morning. Nor can they lay the blame on inanimate automatic weapons.

They cannot even blame the shootings on President Trump.

What we have been seeing on Facebook Political Pages and Twitter has now been taken to the next step. This is on the out- of-control Left.

However, don’t expect the Liberal Elite to take any responsibility for it.

That would require ethics, morals…and a conscience.

Which, as evidenced by some of their reactions yesterday…are no longer a Liberal priority.

WikiLeaks Reveals Romantic Triangle: Millinneals Loved Bernie, Bernie Loved Hillary, Bernie Sold Out Millennials

November 6, 2016

Politics has become so expensive that it takes a lot of money even to be defeated. – Will Rogers

Foxnews.com reports that

AMES, Iowa –  Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders narrowly finished second this winter in the state’s Democratic caucuses, then left Iowa in a February snowstorm as a contender. He returned Saturday on a warm autumn day to Iowa State University as a surrogate, offering his young, fervent supporters a more difficult pitch — vote for Hillary Clinton.  

Some of his devotees remain unconvinced, even those the Clinton campaign selected to speak at this Clinton campaign event.

“She doesn’t care about us. Voting for a lesser of two evils, there’s no point,” Kaleb Van Fosson, a sophomore and Sanders supporter, said to the small crowd.

After drawing light applause, Clinton campaign staff quickly escorted Van Fosson from the stage, as he criticized Clinton for her ties to financial institutions.

“I got a call the other day asking me if I wanted to speak for Hillary, basically they wanted to use me like a puppet,” Van Fosson told Fox News. “Trump’s not any better, but Hillary Clinton is still terrible.”

Others in attendance agreed with Van Fosson, though most in the crowd appeared supportive of the Democratic nominee.

“He’s made it evidently clear that Hillary Clinton is the right choice and over the summer,” said Devon Graham, a local Sanders supporter.  “I went fully behind Hillary and I’m really excited for her as a candidate but also excited that Bernie is supporting her as well.”

Sanders used much of his speech to bring attention to his signature issues — corporate oversight, climate change and income inequality. In endorsing Clinton, he acknowledged those who dislike both nominees.

“Get beyond personality,” he told the crowd. “Alright, you don’t like Hillary Clinton, you don’t like Donald Trump fine. You like yourselves. I hope so, if that means taking a hard look at the issues the candidates stand for. We’re not running here for class president of the local high school. This is not a popularity contest. We are electing the most powerful individual in the world.”

Yet many still see Clinton’s positions as too centrist and her remarks to Wall Street firms, provided by WikiLeaks, too deferential to financial firms’ interests.

“This is home of rural populism and it manifests in very different ways on theft and the right,” said Rachel Caufield, an associate professor of political science at Drake University in Des Moines. 

“On the left if manifests as a distrust of corporations and economic power. And Hillary Clinton’s message isn’t resonating with those folks in the same way that say Barack Obama’s did.  You still have a lot of those folks who were diehard Bernie supporters who will continue to be Bernie supporters and they’re not sure that Hillary Clinton embraces some of the ideological positions that they want to see in their Democratic Party.”

Clinton trails Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, in Iowa by less than 3 percentage points, according to an average of polls provided by Real Clear Politics.

The latest state-provided returns show Iowa Democrats and Republicans have submitted fewer absentee ballots than they did by the same point in 2012. Thus far, Republicans have returned a larger share of ballots, and Democrats a smaller percentage than they did in the last presidential election year. 

As of Friday, 238,029 Democrats and 196,611 Republicans had submitted ballots, according to the Iowa secretary of state. 

While the Clinton campaign relies on surrogates such as Sanders and the Obamas to coax their supporters to the polls, Clinton herself maintains a stead attack on her opponent.

“Among most Democrats, the strongest case she’s making right now is that she’s not Donald Trump,” Caufield said.

Nor is she Sanders. 

“I’ve been to eight of his last 12 events, and the Bernie merchandise sells a lot better than the Hillary,” said Daniel Richards, a campaign merchandise salesman from Springfield Illinois, as he unloaded a stack of Sanders T-shirts from his van. 

“This was the number one seller at the Democratic convention,” Richards also said as he presented a green “It’s always Bernie in Philadelphia” shirt.

Speaking of selling …Bernie Sanders sold his sycophants out.

According to heatstreet.com,

Emails published by WikiLeaks suggest that Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders had a secret “agreement” during the Democratic primary.

In a May 2015 email exchange, top Clinton campaign aides discussed “Sanders criticism” after Hillary’s primary opponent attacked the Clintons over their extreme wealth by suggesting that they “hustle money.”

When asked about the Clintons’ wealth during an interview with CNBC, Sanders had some harsh words:

Theoretically you can be a multibillionaire and in fact be very concerned about the issues of working people. Theoretically that’s true. When you hustle money like that, you don’t sit in restaurants like this. You sit in restaurants where you spend, I don’t know what they spend, hundreds of dollars for dinner and so forth. That’s the world you are accustomed to. And that’s the worldview that you adopt. I’m not going to condemn Hillary and Bill Clinton because they’ve made a lot of money. That type of wealth has the potential to isolate you from the reality of the world.

Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook emailed campaign chairman John Podesta to express his displeasure with Sanders’ remarks, and suggested that Sanders had violated an “agreement” of some kind between the campaigns.

“This isn’t in keep [with] the agreement,” Mook wrote. “Since we clearly have some leverage, would be good to flag this for him. I could send a signal via Welch–or did you establish a direct line [with] him?”

The “Welch” referred to here is presumably Rep. Peter Welch (D., Vt.), one of the first Democratic lawmakers to publicly endorse Sanders.

For the past 7 years, Barack Hussein Obama has been promising “Hope and change”, through his unceasing rhetoric of Class Warfare, Racial Animus, and “Sharing the Wealth”.

His promises have proven to be as empty as our pocketbooks.

Almost 95,000,000 Americans are now out of our workforce, having given up ever being able to find a job.

And, then, you have those Americans who never wanted to work for their money in the first place.

Bernie Sanders, “Evangelist” of the failed political ideology of Marxism, member of the rapidly-tanking American Political Party known as “Democrats”,  basically appealed to the collegiate and “slacker” vote, the MTV Generation, still living in Mom’s Basement, who salivate over the vision of “money for nothing and their chicks for free”.

The Socialist Paradise, which Bernie Sanders offered Millennials, is nothing new.

Ask the countries of Venezuela and Greece, as they burn to the ground, their hopes and dreams piled on top of a “Democratic Socialist” Pyre of their own making.

As we enter the last two days before the most important Presidential Election in our lifetime, it would be wise for those voters who still want to “#FeelTheBern” to remember the words of a great World Leader, Sir Winston Churchill, who, as Prime Minister, led Great Britain though the Fight Against Fascism during World War II, when he said,

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. 

What Bernie’s collective hive-mind of group-thinking followers never seemed to grasp was the reality that Marxism has NEVER worked, anywhere that it has been tried.

Man’s own greed and corruption, as in the case of the old Russian Politboro, and Bernie Sanders, himself, always gets in the way of their dream for a Socialist Utopia.

That is the reason that Marxism remains a THEORY…and a failed one, at that.

The news potentially isn’t all bad for ol’ Bernie are the Democratic Party goes down in flame next Tuesday, though.

Perhaps, they will make a remake of “Back to the Future”.

He’s a dead ringer for Doc Emmett Brown.

2016 Presidential Election “Crunch Time”: Liberal “Concern” Vs. Actual Reality

October 2, 2016

mud-wrestling-600-ci-2

Can you feel the “Liberal Concern” in the air on this Blessed American Sunday Morning, boys and girls?

Foxnews.com reports that

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump stepped up his personal attacks on Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton Saturday night, telling supporters in Pennsylvania that Clinton “should be in prison” over her use of a private email server while secretary of state.

Trump made the apparently unscripted statement as chants of “Lock her up!” rang out at the rally in Manheim, Pa. Trump himself has avoided using such language in the past. But this time, he joined in.

The real estate mogul also made an apparent reference to former President Bill Clinton’s sexual indiscretions, saying that Hillary Clinton’s “only loyalty is to her financial contributors and to herself.”

“I don’t think she’s even loyal to Bill if you want to know the truth,” Trump added. “Why should she be, right? Why should she be?”

Trump previously highlighted the 42nd president’s infidelities in a New York Times interview published Friday.

“Hillary was an enabler,” Trump told the paper. “And she attacked the women who Bill Clinton mistreated afterward. I think it’s a serious problem for them, and it’s something that I’m considering talking about more in the near future.”

When asked by The Times about his affair with Marla Maples while married to his first wife, Ivana during the late 1980s, Trump said “I wasn’t president of the United States. … I don’t talk about it.”

Completing a trifecta of personal attacks against the former first lady, Trump also questioned Clinton’s phsyical stamina, referencing her fainting episode while attending a Sept. 11 memorial service last month.

Rattling off a list of world problems, Trump told the audience, “She’s supposed to fight all of these things and she can’t make it 15 feet to her car. Give me a break.” At that point, Trump imitated Clinton’s stumble that was recorded by a bystander as she tried to leave the event.

“Folks, we need stamina, we need energy, we need people who are going to turn deals around.”

For the second straight evening, Trump questioned the integrity of the nation’s voting system, recalling his warning earlier this summer that the election result would be “rigged”.

“You gotta get out, get your friends, go watch your polling booth,” Trump said Saturday. “I’ve seen too many bad stories especially here in Pennsylvania.

“We can’t lose an election because of, you know what I’m talking about,” the real estate mogul added. “A lot of bad things happen. I don’t want to lose for that reason.”

Trump spoke hours before The New York Times reported that it had obtained documents showing that Trump had claimed a $916 million loss on his 1995 tax returns, an amount so large it may have allowed him to avoid paying income tax for 18 years.

Clinton campaign press secretary Brian Fallon called Trump’s rally remarks unhinged in a Twitter post and speculated that they were an effort to distract from the Times report.

After I read this story this morning, I pictured in my mind’s eye thousands of Liberal News Reporters and Internet Trolls scampering in their footie pajamas to their desktop computers and their iPads, searching for toothless attack stories and ignorant, false memes to post about the Republican Presidential Candidate in retaliation for his attacking their precious Hillary last night…with the truth.

It is a sure thing that these fanboys and hairy-armpitted girls will be attacking Trump all day long today out of heartfelt “concern” for and “righteous rage” in defense of the Queen of Mean.

Some of them might even continue pushing their stupid “Beauty Queen Fat-Shaming Story” that has been beaten into oblivion by the actual facts.

However, you will neither see nor read a mumblin’ word out of Hillary’s minions concerning her recorded attack of Bernie Sander’s’ Followers, in which she accused them of all being “children of the Great Recession” who are “living in their parents’ basement.”

For you see, boys and girls, the hallmark of Modern American Liberal Political Pundits, both paid and unpaid, is HYPOCRISY.

They are not bound by traditional morality and ethics. They consider them to be antiquated and passe.

They believe that their feelings are more substantive than reality and that their biased opinions are the TRUTH.

With a little over a month remaining before the election, these Modern American Liberal “Political Pundits” realize all too well that Donald J. Trump is poised to become the next President of the United States.

This fast-approaching  reality will bring a barrage of attack stories and memes littered across both the Main Stream and Social Medias, like flyers for a local business across a Walmart Parking Lot.

And, they should be discarded in the same manner as those flyers.

Since I became active in Internet Politics before the election of Barack Hussein Obma (mm mmm mmmm), I have borne witness to the fact that while actual Moderates (not Liberals masquerading as such) and Conservatives tend to debate politics based on factual reality, Liberals “debate” by insisting that their own feelings, opinions, and hateful obsessions are reality-driven facts.

Let’s face it, boys and girls…

The weekly Supermarket Tabloid, “The Weekly World News”, contains more facts than a Liberal Internet Rant or one of their Homemade Memes.

The Modern American Liberal Political Pundits’ visceral hatred for Donald J. Trump all streams from the reality of his achievement of the American Dream, which is playing no small part in his upcoming victory in the 2016 Presidential Election.

Trump is about to thwart their plans to finish the job that Obama started of turning the “Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave” into the “Land of Pajama Boys and Caitlin Jenners”.

Thank God.

Until He Comes,

DNC 2016: Promises, Propaganda, and Protesting

July 27, 2016

DNC-Sell-Job-NRD-600

Last week, the Main Stream Media attempted to paint the Repubicans, as they held their 2016 National Convention, as being “split wide open” and the optimistic Acceptance Speech of Donald J. Trump as somehow being “dark”.

As foreboding as they attempted to make last week’s convention sound, the Democrat’s gathering this week has exceeded the chaotic  picture painted by their sycophants in the MSM…and then some.

The Associated Press reports that

Bernie Sanders loyalists protested inside and outside the Democratic National Convention site and clashed with police on Tuesday after Hillary Clinton won the party’s presidential nomination.Despite Sanders’ calls for them to support Clinton, thousands of activists have taken to the streets during the convention this week to voice support for the liberal Vermont U.S. senator and his progressive agenda.

Moments after Clinton became the first woman to be nominated for president by a major U.S. political party, a large group of Sanders delegates and supporters exited the Philadelphia convention site to hold a sit-in inside a media tent. Some had their mouths taped shut. A few spontaneously sang the chorus of the folk song “This Land is Your Land,” and a banner read “we the people.” They said they were holding a peaceful protest to complain about being shut out by the Democratic Party.

“This was not a convention. This was a four-day Hillary party. And we weren’t welcome,” said Liz Maratea, a New Jersey delegate at the media tent protest. “We were treated like lepers.”

In the streets outside, Sanders supporters who had spent the day protesting began facing off with police. Protesters began scaling 8-foot walls blocking off the secure zone around the arena parking lot, and several were detained. An officer sprayed one of the protesters.

The protests continued into the night with Sanders supporters and anti-police brutality protesters joining together. They marched in the street outside of the Wells Fargo Center. Later, someone set an Israeli flag on fire while people chanted “long live the intifada.”

Others then came together for a candlelight vigil.

Unmoved by Sanders’ plea for party unity, the Bernie or Bust protesters walked miles in the stifling heat again Tuesday to make their case for him. They held a midday rally at City Hall, then made their way down Broad Street to the convention site. By early evening, a large crowd had formed outside the subway station closest to the arena.

“We all have this unrealistic dream that democracy is alive in America,” said Debra Dilks, of Boonville, Missouri, who said she wasn’t sure she’ll vote in November. “Hillary didn’t get the nomination. The nomination was stolen.”

The crowd consisted of an assortment of protesters espousing a variety of causes, but mostly Sanders supporters and other Clinton foes on the left. College student Cory James said he expects the Democratic Party to split over the nomination.

“I suspect we are witnessing an event that will fundamentally change American politics,” said James, of Flint, Michigan.

Earlier in the day, participants at the rally charged that Sanders was cheated out of the nomination, and they said they weren’t swayed by his Monday plea to his supporters to fall in line behind Clinton for the good of the country.

“He persuaded no one to vote for Hillary,” said Greg Gregg, a retired nurse from Salem, Oregon, who intends to cast his ballot in November for Green Party candidate Jill Stein.

The longstanding bitterness between Sanders’ supporters and Clinton’s seemed to grow worse over the past few days after a trove of hacked emails showed that officials at the Democratic National Committee played favorites during the primaries and worked to undermine Sanders’ campaign.

Black Men for Bernie founder Bruce Carter said Monday’s speeches from Sanders and Massachusetts U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren didn’t persuade him to support Clinton.

“They really agitate people more every time they stand up and do the Hillary Clinton hoo-rah hoo-rah,” he said.

Carter, a Dallas resident, said he doesn’t fear a Republican Donald Trump presidency.

With temperatures climbing again toward the mid-90s, Chris Scully, an engineer from Troy, New York, held a “Jill Before Hill” sign outside City Hall and said he opposes Clinton because of her war record as U.S. secretary of state.

As Scully spoke, a passer-by called out: “That’s a vote for Trump!”

In a separate protest, against police brutality and racial injustice, about 500 people marched down Broad Street to City Hall. Protest leader Erica Mines told the crowd it was an “anti-police rally” and a “black and brown resistance march” and instructed all white people to move to the back.

March participant Tiara Willis, of Philadelphia, said she subscribes to the slogan “I’m with her … I guess.” She said she won’t back Trump and called Clinton “the lesser of two evils.”

So, while the DNC was scrambling to find some American Flags to put on view inside the convention hall, after Americans noticed that they were purposefully left out of the proceedings, and Millennial Icon Bernie Sanders was selling out to “the Establishment Democrats that he had promised to fight “for the people”, on the other side of the “security fence”, the “peasants” were revolting.

Their reason?

After months of campaigning on the promising of usher in an eras of more “FREE STUFF’, both Self-Proclaimed Socialist Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and the Queen of Mean and now-Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton are embracing the illusion of the Democratic Party being “Moderate” in their Political Ideology, while trying to sucker those on the Far Left into believing that they still matter in the scheme of things.

Instead, the peasants are not being fooled and they are revolting.

(Yeah. They stink on ice. – Mel Brooks, “The History of the World, Part I”)

Unrequited love is so sad, isn’t it?

Why are Far Left Democrats (which nowadays describes the overwhelming majority of the Party) so enamored of Socialist Politicians?

Merriam-webster.com defines socialism as:

…any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods

…a : a system of society or group living in which there is no private property b : a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state

…a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done

The desensitization and placating of the Middle Class, as it was in classic Marxist Theory, is a key element of the Present and Future Platform of the Democrat Party, as it has been during the Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama.

By taking the ambition of the Middle Class away, by offering a “safe and comfortable” cradle-to-grave Nanny-State, “Uncle Sugar” Federal Government, the Democrat Party, ever since the launch of LBJ’s “Great Society”, have bought the loyalty of  American voters by giving them bribes of “free” money and “benefits”.

Unfortunately, as Mitt Romney alluded to during his failed bid for the Presidency, there is a great percentage of American voters who will buy and be content with this “Mother’s milk”, instead of yearning for the thrill and the challenge of the hunt for American Individual Success and Freedom.

The Marxist Ideal of

From each according to his ability, to each according to his need

has become the mantra of the Modern Democratic Party, which has become extremely adept at promising the Moon and handing out free stuff to its voting base, in order to maintain their Seats of Power and to continue to grow the Politboro, or Central Government.

Norman Matoon Thomas (1884-1968) was a six-time Presidential Candidate,  representing the Socialist Party of America.  In a campaign interview in 1948, he said the following:

The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.

However, just like the Marxists before them, today’s Marxists can be bought off.

According to rumors, Bernie Sanders was co-opted into publicly supporting Monica Lewinsky’s boyfriend’s wife through the offer of his own airplane.

That makes sense.  That and the fact that he does not wish to be the victim of a “mysterious death” in his future.

Thanks to a highly politicized, propaganda-filled Department of Education, which has “dumbed down” a generation of voters, the “easy money” solution to poverty, promised by Socialists such as Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton, “tickles the ears” of low information voters, the same voting bloc who continue to support Barack Hussein Obama and his failed Presidency.

Hence, the Democrats’ claim of supporting Black Lives Matter and Bernie Sanders and his Wannabe-Socialist Millennials.

Not to mention the Police Line-up of  guest speakers representing the “downtrodden” and ‘marginalized” that they hand-picked to show that the millionaire Hillary Clinton is “down with the struggle”.

Just like the Politboro before them, this wannabe “New Politboro”, like their sitting President, Barack Hussein Obama,  is quite adept at using human beings for stage props for propaganda purposes.

They bring dishonesty to a level not seen since Kurt Russell played Used Car Salesman Extraordinaire Rudy Russo in the movie, “Used Cars”.

The thing is, even after the debacle that has been this week’s Democratic National Convention, highlighted by the releasing of e-mails by WikiLeaks, not to mention the long history of corruption of Hillary Clinton, Republican Candidate Donald J. Trump will have to work hard to win the Office of President of the United States of America.

Can he do it? Sure, he can.

After all, he wrote “The Art of the Deal”.

Get your popcorn ready.

Until He Comes,

KJ

 

 

 

 

NYT Foreign Bureau Chief Covering DNC: “Trump Supporters ‘Less-Educated White People'”

July 26, 2016

thEUAUOVRK

Well, the trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant, but that they know so much that isn’t so.- Ronald Reagan.

Declan Walsh is the Cairo Bureau Chief for The New York Times.

The former leader in American Journalism decided that it would be a great idea to send Walsh to Philadelphia to cover to Democratic National Convention as a foreign correspondent in much the same way he would cover an overseas event.

His summary of yesterday’s debacle of the first day of the DNC, proves one thing: The only individual snottier and more condescending than an  American Liberal Reporter…is a Foreign Liberal Reporter.

Pay attention to how he describes supporters of Republican Presidential Candidate Donald J. Trump.

My first sight of this week’s Democratic convention had nothing to do with the party’s nominee for president, Hillary Clinton. 

At a bus stop in Philadelphia on Sunday night I passed people clutching placards for Mrs. Clinton’s vanquished rival, Senator Bernie Sanders — a sign of the bubbling passions that have animated every argument in this extraordinary election year.

By Monday morning, those passions had erupted into open divisions, even before the convention had officially started, when Mr. Sanders’s supporters jeered and booed Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee who organized this convention and who has promised to resign.

It was not the start that Mrs. Clinton wanted. In the wake of last week’s bitterly divided Republican convention in Cleveland, chuckling Democrats promised that their own meeting would be a paragon of party discipline and unity. “I can tell you we’re going to have a very different kind of convention,” Mrs. Clinton told supporters on Monday. 

But the publication of 20,000 Democratic National Committee emails by WikiLeaks this weekend provided a disastrous prelude to the convention. The emails revealed concerted efforts by senior party leaders, including Ms. Wasserman Schultz, to undermine Mr. Sanders’s campaign, reopening the wounds from the primary contest.

Come Monday afternoon, Mr. Sanders’s supporters amassed outside the convention hall, shouting, “Hell no, D.N.C., we won’t vote for Hillary!” Inside, they booed at every mention of Mrs. Clinton’s name. And Ms. Wasserman Schultz had announced that she would not, as tradition dictates, strike the gavel to open the convention later that day. 

It is a sign of the fevered change roiling American politics that the normally staid party conventions have become spectacles of confrontation and division where insurgent forces are on display, often to the dismay of traditional party leaders.

It started during last week’s Republican convention, a four-day spectacle of red-meat, hard-core conservative politics in Cleveland where delegates openly clashed over the candidacy of the billionaire Donald J. Trump. On the final night, Mr. Trump delivered a dystopian address that presented America as a fearful place, surrounded by darkness and besieged by enemies. The atmosphere in the hall was strange and electrifying, punctuated by chants of “U-S-A!”

This is my first time covering a campaign in America, and a far cry from those I remember as a child in Ireland, where my father was active in local politics for Fianna Fail, then the governing party. At home, political reporting involved a tour of what was sardonically known as the “chicken-and-chips circuit,” named for the dominant catering choice at campaign events across the country.

In Cleveland, news organizations and tech firms rented out restaurants near the convention arena, providing open bars and free food to journalists, political operatives and corporate types. The Washington Post, CNN and Twitter had their own hospitality setups at restaurants on East Fourth Street, a pedestrian walkway thronged by people and hawkers selling campaign paraphernalia: T-shirts that read “Hot Chicks for Trump,” and pins denigrating Mrs. Clinton.

The media circus also offered an irresistible opportunity for other Americans, of every persuasion, to push their own causes. In front of the NBC studio, which overlooked the street, people waving signs jostled for space, trying to edge into the shot during a live panel discussion. One evangelist held a sign that read “REPENT: Fear him who has the power to cast you into hell” while another yelled into a bullhorn. A mustachioed young man was promoting a T-shirt company. And a diminutive woman, standing on her tiptoes, held a sign warning of the dangers of something call gadolinium.

 “The world’s watching,” she said. “I can’t allow another person to die.”

It felt like more like street theater than politics. But the more salient issues of the American campaign were never far. The shooting of three police officers in Baton Rouge, La., on the eve of the Republican convention highlighted the heady mix of guns, race and policing that has played prominently in the presidential race.

In Philadelphia, America’s wider malaise is playing big. Sanders supporters are overwhelmingly young and, like their Trump counterparts, angry at the traditional establishment of their party. The weekend email dump by WikiLeaks seemed to confirm their suspicions that the party establishment was allied against them.

The difference is that the Democrats hope to unite their warring factions by reaching for more optimistic notes. In a speech on Saturday, Mrs. Clinton’s running mate, Senator Tim Kaine, garnered some rave reviews for his sunny and measured tone.

Apart from chicken and chips (that’s French fries to American readers), Ireland of the 1970s produced its own controversial political figure in the form of Charles J. Haughey, the leader of Fianna Fail. Mr. Haughey divided the Irish between those who saw him as a champion of the people, and those who viewed him as a self-enriching scoundrel. His lavish lifestyle — including a yacht, a mansion on an island and money stashed in offshore tax havens — was eventually exposed in the 1990s.

Mr. Haughey’s wealth was a drop compared to Mr. Trump’s, who boasts that his financial success qualifies him to run the United States, and is unashamed – and, thus far, politically undamaged – by some of his more questionable business dealings. His only fear, it seems, is being out of the news for long, which raises the question of how he will manage during this week’s Democratic convention.

The Cleveland convention, with its baying calls for Mrs. Clinton to be jailed and for the abnegation of civil rights movements, did Mr. Trump no harm. The latest poll published Sunday gives him a small ratings bump, and a modest one-point lead over Mrs. Clinton.

But pollsters and political veterans are skeptical he can maintain this advantage, and the efficacy of polls at this point in the campaign is questionable.

Mr. Trump’s support base — less-educated white people — is too narrow, the analysts say, and he faces too much opposition inside the Republican Party. In the heat of a hard-fought campaign, they argue, his improvised campaign will wilt under pressure from the well-oiled Democratic machine, which already enjoys majority support in key demographics: African-Americans, Hispanics, women and young people.

Last week Stuart Stevens, a Republican operative, likened Mr. Trump’s blustering confidence about his chances to that of a man who has jumped from a 100-story building. “He’s at floor 50, and he thinks he knows how to fly,” Mr. Stevens said.

Mr. Trump has defied the experts many times before — less than a year ago, one prominent expert gave him a 2 percent chance of capturing the Republican nomination. As he breaks and reinvents the political rules, Mr. Trump seems to have shown that it doesn’t matter what the experts say or what the story is — what matters is being in the middle of it.

This week, as the Democrats ready themselves for an unprecedented presidential race, Mrs. Clinton will try to show that she is the best story in town.

“Less – educated white people?”

You mean like Dr. Ben Carson?

Oh, wait.

Liberals overestimate the popular of their restrictive and hypocritical political ideology and myopic world view.

If you believed the avalanche of lies spewed forth in the first day of the DNC alone, you would believe that theirs is the largest political ideology in America and that the Queen of Mean, Hillary Clinton, is America’s version of Mother Teresa.

According to a Gallup Poll, published on January 16th of this year, Conservatives are still the leading Political Ideology in America at 37%, followed closely by “self-described” Moderates at 35%. Liberals remain the Minority Political Ideology in America, comprising only 24% of our population.

That is why I call the actions of these insufferable idiots, like the ones on full display in Philadelphia, ignoring their own scandalous behavior in their desperation to prevent Donald J. Trump from becoming the next President of the United States of America, “The Tyranny of the Minority”.

So, anyway, here we are…with a bunch of paid and unpaid “useful idiots”, American and of Foreign Origin, telling all of us normal Americans, living out here in the Heartland, how stupid and intolerant we are, for actually holding on to Traditional American Values and wanting to “Make America Great Again”

I have heard this garbage before.

Back in 2011, I got into a discussion on Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government website with some Cheetos-munching, Mom’s basement-dwelling Lib with no home training, who proceeded to tell me that he would be proud to defecate on the American Flag.

If I could have reached through my computer monitor and throttled that useless, ungrateful spoiled brat, I would have.

That “dude” was yet another example of the useful idiots of this present generation, such as Miley Cyrus, that seem to be garnering a lot of national attention for their outrageous, disrespectful…and, yes, intolerant, behavior.

What we are witnessing at this year’s Democratic National Convention Mirrors what  we have been bearing witness for the last couple of years, through the glorification of thugs and the vilifying of our local police departments by the Obama Administration and the local “communities” which they lay their lives on the line for, every day they put on their uniforms, the effects of LBJ’s “Great Society” on American Culture and the Black Family Unit, so are we witnessing, through the egocentric behavior of this present generation, what happens when children are left to “their own devices”, instead of being raised “in the way in which they should go”.

These “spoiled brats”, like their imperious President, do not care about the “Will of the People”, but, rather, they are intent on implementing and enforcing their Far Left Political Ideology, resulting in a “Tyranny of the Minority”, which we are seeing play out, as they attempt to hold on to their “FREE STUFF” bestowed upon them by the “benevolent masters” of the Democrat Party, whom as found out through WikiLeaks, encouraged and helped to bring about staged protests, in a failed attempt to try to block Donald J. Trump’s pathway to the Presidency.

The use of Karl Marx/Saul Alinsky-inspired “Class War Politics”, including “Racial Rhetoric”, and Barack Hussein Obama’s own petulant, belligerent personality of a 12-year-old, has inspired these “protestors”, leading to a divided nation, the likes of which has not been seen since “The War of Northern Aggression”.

When our Founding Fathers sat down to provide form and substance to the laws and procedures for governing this new country, which they had fought and won a bloody war over, by pledging their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor, they were very aware of the price of tyranny.

They determined that this new nation would be a Constitutional Republic, having had their fill of monarchies.

And, that Sacred Document, our United States Constitution, gives each of us the right, including Trump, to speak our minds and be heard.

It gives the protestors at Donald  J. Trump’s Campaign Appearances that right, too…but, not at the expense of others, by strong-arming their way into Political Rallies, or by blocking access to them, for the expressed purpose of denying someone their First Amendment Rights.

And, it also gives the Liberals/Progressives/Alinsky-ites/Marxists who control the Modern Democratic Party the right to present themselves as a prevaricating, America-hating, disorganized bunch of idiots, like they did yesterday.

In conclusion, Liberals and newspaper reports (but, I repeat myself) have the same rgiths as we do under our Constitution.

However, to label supporters of the Republican Candidate as “less-educated white people”, when there is no evidence that they are, in order to try to cover for the rapidly-imploding Democratic Party and their rapidly-tanking Presumptive Presidential Candidate in order to keep Donald J. Trump from becoming the next President…is pathetic.

That is not “journalism”. That is “opinion”.

And, here in America’s Heartland, we call that “INTOLERANCE”.

Crooked President Endorses “Crooked Hillary”. Socialist VP Candidate in the Wings?

June 10, 2016

screen%20shot%202016-06-09%20at%202.01.03%20pmYesterday was a very busy day in the World of American Politics.

In fact. it was so busy that it left my head spinning.

Or, it could be nausea.

The Washington Post reports that

President Obama offered his formal endorsement of Hillary Clinton with a video Thursday and plans to campaign with the former secretary of state in Wisconsin next week, efforts aimed at speeding the Democratic Party’s unification around its presumed presidential nominee.

“I know how hard this job can be, that’s why I know Hillary will be so good at it,” Obama says in the video. “In fact I don’t think there’s ever been someone so qualified to hold this office. She’s got the courage, the compassion and the heart to get this job done.”

The swift endorsement came after the president met with Sen. Bernie Sanders at the White House earlier Thursday and the senator from Vermont indicated he is preparing to exit the Democratic nominating battle.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) will offer her own endorsement later Thursday on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show, a person close to Warren confirmed on condition of anonymity. The only Democratic woman in the Senate who had not yet endorsed Clinton, Warren’s support is expected to help bring Sanders supporters and the left generally in line behind the presumptive nominee.

Sanders has been under pressure to stand down and help unify the party after a long and contentious contest with Clinton for the nomination.

One of Obama’s tasks will be to try to rally those who have backed Sanders behind Clinton’s candidacy.

The short video provides a preview of the central theme Obama is likely to hammer away at for months to come: that Clinton’s experience, toughness and values make her more qualified to lead the country than a real estate magnate who’s never held public office.“And from the decision we made in the Situation Room to get bin Laden, to our pursuit of diplomacy in capitals around the world, I have seen her judgment, I’ve seen her toughness,” the president said. “I’ve seen her commitment to our values up close.”

Clinton and Obama will campaign together in Green Bay, Wis., her campaign confirmed.

In an interview with Bloomberg News, timed to correspond with the video’s release, Clinton welcomed the Obama endorsement.

“It just means so much to have a strong, substantive endorsement from the president. Obviously I value his opinion a great deal personally,” Clinton said. “It’s just such a treat because over the years of knowing each other, we’ve gone from fierce competitors to true friends.”

Sanders told reporters after his White House meeting he is looking forward to working with Clinton to defeat Trump in the fall.

“Needless to say, I’m going to do everything in my power, and I’m going to work as hard as I can, to make sure that Donald Trump does not become president of the United States,” he told reporters, as his wife, Jane, stood behind him.

Trump, meanwhile, offered his thoughts in a tweet: “Obama just endorsed Crooked Hillary. He wants four more years of Obama — but nobody else does!”

Sanders said he still plans to compete in Tuesday’s final Democratic primary in the District, but he added that “in the near future” he hopes to meet with Clinton — who this week clinched the Democratic nomination — to talk about ways they can work together.

His comments suggested that Sanders is preparing to exit the long and grueling presidential race so long as leading Democrats make a genuine effort to incorporate his policy ideas into their broader agenda.

The hour-long meeting with Obama came on a busy day for Sanders in Washington, where he also met on Capitol Hill with Senate Minority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.); Reid has sought to play the role of peace broker at the end of a contentious nominating contest between Sanders and Clinton.

An afternoon meeting with Vice President Biden was also added to Sanders’s schedule for Thursday. The two are set to meet at the vice president’s residence at the Naval Observatory, said Sanders spokesman Michael Briggs.

“He is seeking out the counsel of people he admires and respects,” Briggs said of Sanders.

Increasingly, Sanders’s aim seems to be using the leverage that he and his millions of loyal followers now have to ensure that his campaign agenda — anchored around issues of income and wealth inequality — has a central place in the Democratic Party’s platform and general-election strategy.

Meanwhile, the plot sickens…per Fox News:

White House press secretary Josh Earnest on Thursday called the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton a “criminal investigation.”

Fox News reporter James Rosen said to Earnest, “So when a career prosecutor or an FBI agent working on the Clinton investigation hears this President speak openly about how he wants Hillary Clinton to succeed him, you don’t think that that career prosecutor or that FBI agent takes that as some indication as to how the president wants to see this case resolved?”

I have spent a lot of time the last couple of years writing about the Washingtonian Status Quo and the tone-deaf nature of the REplublican Establishment, or “Vichy” Republicans, as I dubbed them, for their predilection to sell out and acquiesce to the political schemes of the other side of the Political Aisle, the members of the Democratic Party.

Now, unless the Socialist Senator from Vermont decides to launch an ill-fated Third Party Campaign for the Presidency, Bernie Sanders’ Supporters, including all of those mush-minded millennials, who thought that Uncle Bernie was going to become President and give them all “free stuff”, are about to “Feel the Bern” alright…in the same region as Jack did when he jumped over the candle stick.

Depending on whether the Far Left Advocates, who now control the Democratic Party, will decide to completely drop their mask dyring Hillary’s Presidential Campaign and proudly proclaim their Marxism or not, Sanders, the “Doc Emmett Brown look-alike, could be asked to be Hillary’s Vice-Presidential Candidate, in order to attempt to secure the much-needed vote of the easily-led millennials.

That would solve one problem that the Democrat Hieracrchy faces.

However, they face an even bigger one:

Their Presidential Candidate is as crooked as a dog’s hind leg.

Obama’s endorsement will not whitewash this fact.

Neither will his blocking the FBI from seeking an indictment of Hillary Clinton, is that is his plan, which I am certain that it is.

The Democrats are calling the Upcoming Nomination and Campaign of Hillary Clinton for the Presidency of the United States, a “Seminal Moment in American History”. All of this adulation is not because she is all that and a bag of chips. They are lauding her candidacy, simply because she is a woman.

Well, it’s a Seminal Moment in American History, alright. But, not for that reason. Other women, as you can read all over Facebook, have run for the Office of President before.

This moment is unique in American History because a Sitting President has endorsed a Former Secretary of State, who is facing CRIMINAL CHARGES for her ability to safeguard America’s Foreign Policy Top Secret Plans and Strategies, which contained acts which quite probably endangered American lives.

To summarize, you have a Machiavellian Sitting President, who has deliberately split this nation along Racial, Moral, Ethical, and Socio-Economic Lines, endorsing as his potential successor a woman, whose biggest professional accomplishment was the mishandling of Top Secret Foreign Policy E-mails, and who might choose a full-blown Marxist as her Vice-Presidential Candidate.

Doesn’t this give you the “warm fuzzies”?

It does me. Although, as I mentioned at the beginning of this post, it is probably nausea.

All of these Democratic Political Machinations should not surprise you.

After all, when it comes to the Sitting President and his Former Secretary of State, it has been proven time and time again that

One lies and the other swears to it.

Now, please excuse, I have to go hurl.

Until He Comes,

Hillary is Lauded For “Historic” Victory. Trump Answers With a “Reality Check”.

June 8, 2016

untitled (69)Now that the lauding of Democrat Candidate Hillary Clinton’s becoming the first EVAH Female United States of America Presidential Candidate has subsided, the reality of the problems that she faces in the General Election is starting to sink in among her supporters in the Main Stream Media.

According to the Washington Post,

One of the things that has worried some Democrats is the question of how a by-the-book candidate like Clinton would deal with someone as wildly unconventional as Trump.

When violence broke out ahead of a Trump rally in Chicago in March, forcing him to cancel, he took to television to encourage his fans to blame Sanders’s supporters.

Clinton remained silent for hours, and her initial response was tepid. It was not until the next day that she accused Trump of setting the tone that encouraged the melee. “If you play with matches, you’re going to start a fire you can’t control,” she said in St. Louis.

But she found her footing more quickly the night of the Pennsylvania primary.

Trump, with the GOP nomination in hand, had been vowing to recalibrate his style and become more presidential. His chief strategist, Paul Manafort, had assured members of the Republican National Committee in a closed-door briefing that the real estate mogul had merely been playing a part in the primary, that Trump would begin “evolving into the part that you’ve been expecting. The negatives will come down, the image is going to change.”

That was exactly what Clinton and her team expected as well — and it worried them. But so far, those fears haven’t been realized.

In the car on the way to the airport in Philadelphia,

they heard of Trump’s latest fusillade.“Frankly, if Hillary Clinton were a man, I don’t think she’d get 5 percent of the vote. The only thing she’s got going is the woman’s card,” Trump said. “And the beautiful thing is, women don’t like her. Look how well I did with women tonight.”

On the short flight to Teterboro, N.J., they deliberated what to do. Should she express outrage? Should she dispute the fairness of what he had said?

As it happened, the campaign’s digital staff had already prepared a video of one of Clinton’s often-used lines, which she had repeated that night: “If fighting for women’s health care and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the woman card, then deal me in.”

“That,” communications director Jennifer Palmieri told the others on the plane, “is our only response.”

In retrospect, Palmieri said, “that was the night he became the Republican nominee. It was important to freeze that moment in time.” The next two days saw the biggest online fundraising of the entire campaign.

In San Diego last week, Clinton eviscerated Trump in a speech billed as a foreign policy address. Her technique was to use Trump’s own words to make the case against him.

Her allies cheered.

“It put a lot of Democratic bed-wetting on pause,” said one campaign official. “Now they can visualize how we will take the fight to him.”

Campaign officials said they are already planning a similar speech focused on the economy.

But they also insist that they cannot count on the Republican nominee to be his own undoing.

“We can’t go into it thinking our opponent will excite our base. We have to give people a reason to vote for us, too,” Marshall said. “We have an opportunity to go out there and earn it.”

Clinton has already made history by locking up the nomination. And she has shown that she can learn from her own mistakes. Now comes the biggest chance of all, and this time, there will be no margin for error.

The Clinton Campaign has bigger problems than the Washington Post and the rest of the Democrats care to admit.

She is untrustworthy.

Fifty-seven percent of the American people do not believe Hillary Clinton is trustworthy according to an ABC-Washington Post poll conducted in March.  The fog of Clinton scandals has eroded public trust in the former Secretary of State and it is the latest one which I find the most appalling.  The State Department Office of Inspector General (OIG) provided another reminder of Secretary Clinton’s lack of honesty last week by issuing a scathing report detailing her illegal use of a private email server to conduct official government business.   Even the liberal Huffington Post was prompted to run a piece titled “State Department Report Justifies Indictments for Hillary Clinton.  Democrats Need Bernie Sanders.”

Then there’s the matter of the millennials and other wannabe-socialists who “Felt The Bern”.

The are feeling another kind of “burn”, now. Per politico.com,

One out of every four Bernie Sanders supporters said they will not support Hillary Clinton in the general election if she is the Democratic Party’s standard bearer, according to the results of a McClatchy-Marist poll out Wednesday.

While 25 percent of Sanders backers said they would not support Clinton in November, 69 percent said they would vote for the former secretary of state.

Among Clinton supporters, just 14 percent said they would steer clear of voting for Sanders should he become the party’s nominee, with 79 percent saying they would get behind the Vermont senator.

Overall, the national survey released on the heels of Sanders’ resounding victory in Wisconsin found him leading Clinton 49 percent to 47 percent nationally, with Sanders holding wide advantages among those younger than 30, Latinos, political independents, unmarried people and those identifying as liberals. Clinton, meanwhile, leads by significant margins among those 60 and older, among African Americans, married people and those identifying as Democrats.

Marist conducted the survey from March 29-31, surveying 1,066 registered voters, including 497 Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents. For that subsample, the margin of error is plus or minus 4.4 percentage points.

After all the shenanigans, involving the Super Delegates and other assorted political chicanery designed by the Democrats to secure the victory for Hillary, Bernie supporters have every right to be angry and disillusioned.

The Democrat Elite want to hold onto the Washingtonian Status Quo just as much as the Vichy Republicans do.

The final problem that Hillary faces, as the Washington Post noted, is Donald J. Trump, himself.

Trump does not play by “the rules” of Washington Politics.

He fights back, as he stated during his victory speech last night after wrapping up the Republican Primaries.

Now, I know some people say I’m too much of a fighter. My preference is always peace, however. And I’ve shown that. I’ve shown that for a long time. I’ve built an extraordinary business on relationships and deals that benefit all parties involved. Always. My goal is always, again, to bring people together. But if I’m forced to fight for something I really care about, I will never, ever back down. And our country will never, ever back down.

I’ve fought for my family, I’ve fought for more business, I’ve fought for my employees. And now, I’m going to fight for you, the American people. Like nobody has ever fought before. And I’m not a politician fighting, I’m me. You’re going to see some real good things happen. Just remember this, I’m going to be your champion.

I’m going to be America’s champion. Because you see, this election isn’t about Republican or Democrat, it’s about who runs this country. The special interests or the people, and I mean, American people. Every election year, politicians promise change. Obama promised change and it didn’t work out too well. And every year, they fail to deliver.

Why would politicians want to change a system that’s totally rigged in order to keep them in power? That’s what they’re doing, folks. Why would politicians want to change a system that’s made them and their friends very, very wealthy? I beat a rigged system, by winning with overwhelming support. The only way you could have done it. Landslides all over the country, with every demographic on track to win 37 primary caucus victories in a field that began with 17 very talented people.

After years of disappointment, there’s one thing we all have learned. We can’t fix the rigged system by relying on — and I mean this so, so strongly — the very people who rigged it. And they rigged it. And do not ever think anything differently. We can’t solve our problems by counting on the politicians who created our problems.

The Clintons have turned the politics of personal enrichment into an art form for themselves. They’ve made hundreds of millions of dollars selling access, selling favors, selling government contracts, and I mean hundreds of millions of dollars.

Secretary Clinton even did all of the work on a totally illegal private server. Something that how she’s getting away with nobody understands. Designed to keep her corrupt dealings out of the public record, putting the security of the entire country at risk, and a president in a corrupt system is totally protecting her. Not right.

I am going to give a major speech on probably Monday of next week and we’re going to be discussing all of the things that have taken place with the Clintons. I think you’re going to find it very informative and very, very interesting. I wonder if the press will want to attend. Who knows.

Hillary Clinton turned the State Department into her private hedge fund. The Russians, the Saudis, the Chinese, all gave money to bill and Hillary and got favorable treatment in return. It’s a sad day in America when foreign governments with deep pockets have more influence in our own country than our great citizens.

I didn’t need to do this. It’s not easy, believe me. I didn’t need to do it, but I felt I had to give back to our wonderful country, which has been so good to me and to my family.

I’ve traveled to many of our states and seen the suffering in people’s eyes. I’ve visited communities in new York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Indiana, and Ohio, whose manufacturing jobs, literally, these jobs have virtually disappeared. An embarrassment to our country and it’s horrible.

I’ve embraced the victims of illegal immigration, moms and dads who have had to bury their own children, because of people who shouldn’t have been in the country. Remember it, folks. Remember it. I’ve visited the crumbling cities and the struggling schools. I’ve seen our dilapidated airports, highways, bridges, and I’ve compared them to other countries where we see facilities so far superior to ours. It’s really not to be believed.

Hard to imagine what’s happened to our country. America is being taken apart piece by piece, auctioned off and just rapidly, auctioned off to the highest bidder. We’re broke. We’re broke. We are $19 trillion, going quickly to $21 trillion. Our infrastructure is a disaster. Our schools are failing. Crime is rising. People are scared. The last thing we need is Hillary Clinton in the White House or an extension of the Obama disaster.

One of the secrets to Donald Trump’s Political Success, is, in fact, his masterful manipulation of the scavenging vultures that comprise the Main Stream Media.

Trump has played the media like Charlie Daniels plays the fiddle, with outstanding expertise and unerring accuracy.

Additionally, the ability to speak truth to power, to relate to average Americans, and to communicate in a fashion that gets his message across to the American Public, is exactly the reason that Trump continues to be steadily gaining popularity among the American Public.

Trump’s willingness to strike back at the Clinton Campaign and the Main Stream Media, when they malign him and publish false stories about him, has tapped into the American Public’s feelings about both the MSM and the Washingtonian Status Quo.

Americans are viewing Trump as someone who is not afraid to fight, for himself or for Americans.

One thing is for sure: unlike Crooked Hillary, Trump is not in it for the money.

So far, every hit piece in the Media, or things that his political opponents, including Hillary, has backfired in spectacular fashion.

Regarding his upcoming battle in the General Election with the “Queen of Mean” herself, Hillary Clinton…

Unfortunately for both the Democrats and the “Eeyores” and “Prophets of Doom” in the “#NeverTrump” Crowd, as Rush alluded to, the American people have her figured out, as her long and bloody Political History is there for everyone to see.

Lying comes as naturally to The Former First Lady as breathing in and out.

As I have written, from the time she was fired from the Watergate Investigative Committee to wiping her private e-mail server, Hillary Rodham Clinton has been as crooked as a dog’s hind leg.

Machiavellian in political ambition and armed with a vocabulary that would make the legendary Gong Show Judge, Jaye P. Morgan, blush (look her up, kids), “the Hildebeast” has cut a wide swatch in her path to Political Power.

It should be obvious to Americans by now, that she believes that morality and ethics are for “the little people” (i.e., you and me).

We already have a congenital liar in the White House.

We certainly do not need another one.

So, my Prediction for the upcoming Presidential Campaign, leading up to the election of Donald J. Trump, as the 45th President of the United States of America?

Grab your popcorn, boys and girls, this is gonna be fun.

Oh…and Ambassador Christopher Stevens remains unavailable for comment.

Hillary to Hire Internet Trolls to Attack Bernie Supporters. Get Your Popcorn Here.

May 13, 2016

internet-trollIf you don’t believe that the Clinton Campaign is concerned about the unexpected success of the Presidential Campaign of Bernie Sanders, check this out:

Breitbart.com reports that

Correct the Record, a pro-Hillary Clinton political action committee (PAC), is spending over $1 million on online trolls in order to ‘correct’ Bernie Sanders supporters on social media sites.

The PAC this week launched an initiative called “Barrier Breakers 2016,” which is composed of a “task force” that will debate ‘Bernie Bros,’ presumably supporters of the Senator Sanders’s campaign, as referred to by their official press release.

According to Correct the Record, the task force will “combat online political harassment,” boasting that it has already “addressed more than 5,000 individuals who have personally attacked Secretary Clinton on Twitter.”

“The task force will provide a presence and space online where Clinton supporters can organize and engage with one another and are able to obtain graphics, videos, gifs, and messaging to use in their own social spaces,” the group states.

“Additionally, the Barrier Breakers 2016 task force hopes to embrace the creativity of Hillary Clinton’s supporters by sharing their efforts and content with other groups,” it continues.

“Barrier Breakers 2016 is focused on pushing out positive content to Hillary supporters online to counter negative attacks and false narratives,” Correct the Record’s communications director, Elizabeth Shappell, told The Daily Beast. “The expanded task force was established in anticipation of the general election.”

According to Campaign Legal Center lawyer Paul Ryan, Correct the Record is “creating new ways to undermine campaign regulation.” However, it is understood the Federal Electoral Commission will not be investigating the matter.

Those of us who are Political Junkies, who hang out on the Social Media, have witnessed the phenomenon known as “Paid Internet Trolls”, since the Presidency of George W. Bush.

It’s amazing how websites are a reflection of our Political Reality.

Every website and Facebook Page, where there is political discussion, unless they are just Pro-one-way-or-the-other, puts out a plea for civil discourse in the discussions that happen between commenters on their site.

Unfortunately, though, that never seems to happen. And, why is that?

If you are an Internet – Surfing Political Junkie like me, at some time or another, you have no doubt run into an aggravating, bitter, whiney individual, commonly referred to as an “Internet Troll”.

In America, most Internet Trolls belong to the Liberal Political Ideology (whether they admit it, or not).

And, as the above article proves, a lot of them are getting paid for eating Cheetos and commenting on Political Facebook Pages and Websites all day.

In our American Culture today, the art of civil discourse has degenerated into a shouting match. This wouldn’t be so bad, if both sides had the right to shout equally as loud as the other side.

The problem is, for some reason, Conservatives are expected to mind our manners, be meek and mild, and follow the Marquis of Queensberry rules, while Liberals, libertarians, and self-identified “Moderates” (Liberals who won’t admit to being one) call us everything but a child of God.

However, this doesn’t just happen on the Internet, this happens in the Real World as well… and it all starts with the President of the United States and trickles down from there.

Before Obama became President, in a private fund raiser in Pennsylvania, he referred to us American Conservatives as bitter clingers, clinging to our guns and Bibles. Then, the Main Stream Media, totally in love with their new messiah, told everyone who would listen, that if you did not vote for Barack Hussein Obama as President, you are a racist.

When Conservatives started to dig up historical facts about Obama, we are told by those whom I identified to sit down, shut up, and know “our role” or “stay in our lane”.

After Obama was elected, and the country started to find out just exactly who he was, Conservatives started to speak out again. Again, we were told to sit down, shut up, and know our “role”(stay in our lane).

Finally, we had enough and began a groundswell, which led to the formation of what has become known as the Tea Party.

The rise of the Tea Party movement and America’s return to Conservatism, which resulted in the political massacre known as the 2010 Midterm Elections, was such a surprise to them. In their self-imposed isolation, they actually thought that the America people wanted them to continue their deal-making, soul-selling, business-as-usual politics.

They were in shock when American Conservatives stood up on their hind legs and gave the House of Representatives back to the Republican Party.

And, you know what happened afterwards?

The Liberal Establishment and their minions, the Internet Trolls, began a relentless Social Media Campaign designed to make American Conservatives, once again, the “Silent Majority”, calling us “racists” for speaking the truth about Barack Hussein Obama, and telling us, once again, to sit down, shut up, know our “role”/”stay in our lane”.

Then, after the overwhelming Political Massacre that transpired on November 6, 2014, with Republicans gaining control of both Houses of Congress, thanks, once again, to the Conservative Base, and, the national resentment of the growing Liberal use of the Rhetoric of Class and Racial Warfare, spurred on by their Petulant President, the Internet Trolls started whining louder than the Civil Defense Siren at Noon on Saturday.

And now, on the cusp of the Presidency of Donald J. Trump, the reformation of the Republican Party, and the  apparent abject failure of the Presidential Campaign of Hillary Clinton, Internet Trolls are poised to once again attempt to shut down Free Speech and reshape the very fabric of reality.

Are you beginning to see a pattern, boys and girls?

Liberal Trolls and their activity on the Internet are simply an extension of our culture at large.

Liberalism has always been a failed political ideology. It has never been embraced by the majority of Americans.

So, in order for Liberals to “get their way”, since their ideas are never excepted by the majority of Americans, they must resort to the facilitation of Culture Change through intimidation, rule by fiat, and via Executive Orders, if they have a President in the White House, who will do their bidding…which has certainly been the case since January 21, 2009.

In other words, Liberal Activists, especially Internet Trolls, are dirty, manipulative, little cowards, who overestimate their power….and, their own intelligence…as this “Inter-Party War” between Clinton and Sanders will clearly demonstrate.

Each side will expect the other to acquiesce and surrender to their “superior intellect” and unceasing Internet insults and propaganda.

Normally, Liberal Democrats, including the “Trolling” variety, both paid and unpaid, attack average Conservative Americans, expecting us to behave like a dog who has been whipped too much, go cower in a corner and allow them to insult and walk all over us in our online “discussions”.

Their expectation of Conservative Behavior is predicated on the fact that they know that we were raised right, usually by two parents, and that the majority of us are Christians, and are reluctant to have an out-of-body experience on an Internet Chat Board or Political Facebook Page, telling them where to go and the temperature when they get there.

Therefore, Liberal Democrats feel as if they can take advantage of the good nature of American Conservatives, and walk all over us.

They have found out differently over the past several years, as they frequently get their hindquarters handed to them.

In the scenario described by article at the beginning of this post, it will be Liberal insulting Liberal, in a scene reminiscent of two Professional Wresting “Heels” beating the snot out of each other.

Grab your popcorn, boys and girls.

This should be fun to watch.

WV Coal Miners Exact Their Revenge on Clinton. Democrats Shocked That Their Con Job Didn’t Work.

May 11, 2016

th120T42JDAlmost Heaven, West Virginia…

Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River.

Hil got beat there,

Beat there like a drum.

The Democrats are puzzled,

But I’m sure having fun.

USA Today reports that

While Clinton’s loss will probably matter little in her battle with Sanders given her large overall delegate lead, it is a powerful reminder of her challenges in a general election match-up with Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee.
Clinton’s performance in West Virginia — a state she won by a wide margin in the 2008 primaries — could point to problems with a critical voting bloc that supported her husband during the more economically prosperous 1990s.

These same voters now feel left behind as manufacturing jobs have disappeared and the coal industry has declined amid a shift to cleaner sources of energy.  Trump is vowing to bring coal and manufacturing jobs back to depressed pockets of Appalachia by slapping tariffs on China and reworking trade deals.

 Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders speaks at a campaign rally in Stockton, Calif., on May 10, 2016.

“West Virginia is a working-class state, and like many other states in this country, including Oregon, working people are hurting,” he said. “And what the people of West Virginia said tonight, and I believe the people of Oregon and Kentucky will say next week, is that we need an economy that works for all of us, not just the one percent.”

Oregon and Kentucky each hold Democratic primaries next Tuesday. Given the Democratic Party’s proportional allocation system, Sanders stood to only modestly boost his delegate total with his West Virginia win.

While Clinton’s loss will probably matter little in her battle with Sanders given her large overall delegate lead, it is a powerful reminder of her challenges in a general election match-up with Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee.

These same voters now feel left behind as manufacturing jobs have disappeared and the coal industry has declined amid a shift to cleaner sources of energy.  Trump is vowing to bring coal and manufacturing jobs back to depressed pockets of Appalachia by slapping tariffs on China and reworking trade deals.

Alternatively, Clinton’s vision is to move these communities to a new generation of jobs, acknowledging a coal industry renaissance is not in the cards.

In a speech at a brewery in southeastern Ohio last week, Clinton said coal is still a part of the nation’s energy supply, but even big coal-consuming nations like China are starting to burn less. “No matter what some politicians tell you, these trends are here to stay,” she said in Athens, Ohio.

It’s not a message they seem to want to hear. Trump is ahead of Clinton by 27 points in West Virginia, according to a recent Public Policy Polling survey.

His performance in West Virginia with white, working-class voters also explains why he’s picking up steam in more critical Midwestern swing states that Clinton has to carry in November.

Democrats have assumed Clinton would beat Trump in states like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Michigan, which voted twice for Barack Obama and are populated by the blue-collar, union households that have been the Democratic Party’s lifeblood for generations.

Yet a new Quinnipiac University Swing State Poll shows Clinton and Trump in a dead heat in two of them: Ohio and Pennsylvania.

Since Hillary was a part of a Presidential Administration, who placed an unproven “science” above American Jobs, it was only fitting that West Vergina Democrat Voters, those “Blue-collar” folks that the Democrats erroneously claim that they love, did their dead-level best to make sure that she will NOT be hired, come this November.

Speaking of her Former Boss, President Barack Hussein Obama, have you ever wondered why he continues to try to force Americans to accept “forms of Alternative Energy”, when they have all failed economically, at the expense of American Jobs?

And, why does he continue to push the disproven pseudo-science of “Global Warming…errr…Climate Change”?

The Chicago Climate Exchange was North America’s only voluntary, legally binding greenhouse gas reduction and trading system for emission sources and offset projects in North America and Brazil.

It all began with the Joyce Foundation.  This foundation started as the financial back-up plan of a widow whose family had made millions in the lumber industry.

After her death, it was run by philanthropic people who increasingly dedicated their giving to Liberal causes, including gun control, environmentalism and school changes.  It has grown over the years until it is now bigger than the TIDES Foundation and actually funds it.

The Joyce Foundation in 2000 and 2001 provided the capitol outlay to start the Chicago Climate Exchange. It started trading in 2003, and what it traded was, believe it or not, air.

Barack Obama served on the board of the Joyce Foundation from 1994 to 2002 . What a coincidence, that, as president, pushing cap-and-trade was one of his highest priorities, huh?

Back on 6/29/09, canadafreepress.com reported that

If we follow the time line on where Obama was during the funding of the Chicago Climate Exchange, he was still a lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School teaching constitutional law, with his law license becoming inactive a year later in 2002.

It may be interesting to note that the Chicago Climate Exchange in spite of its hype, is a veritable rat’s nest of cronyism. The largest shareholder in the Exchange is Goldman Sachs. Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley is its honorary chairman, The Joyce Foundation, which funded the Exchange also funded money for John Ayers’ Chicago School Initiatives. John is the brother of William Ayers.

What a flap when it was discovered that the senator from Chicago had nursed on Saul Alinsky’s milk, had his political career launched at a coffee party held by domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, and sat for 20 years, uncomplaining in front of the “God-dam-America pulpit of resentment-challenged Jeremiah Wright.

Folk were naturally outraged that the empty suit who would go on to become TOTUS was spawned from such anti-American activism.

But the media should have been hollering, “Stop Thief!” instead.

The same Chicago Climate Exchange promoting public rip-off was funded by Obama before he was POTUS.

Even as man-made global warming is being exposed as a money-generating hoax, Obama is working feverishly to push the controversial cap-and-trade carbon reduction scheme through Congress.

Fortunately for our nation, Obama’s Cap and Trade Bill failed to leave the Senate in July of 2010, leading the Chicago Climate Exchange to close up shop in November of 2010.

However, as I stated earlier, to this very day, Obama is still relentlessly pursuing “Climate Change”, which the majority of Americans, in poll after poll, have stated is not a National Priority.

And, a group of Investors, among whose number are friends and benefactors of Obama, have formed another group, for the stated purpose of “Duty and Humanity”, in order to, as the Chicago Climate Exchange was going to, “assist in the fight against Climate Change”.

The Business Insider reported a short while back, that

Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos, and a roster of other high-profile tech figures are launching a new organisation designed to invest in renewable energy technologies. 

It is called the Breakthrough Energy Coalition, and says its aim is to create “a network of private capital committed to building a structure that will allow informed decisions to help accelerate the change to the advanced energy future our planet needs.”

Announced ahead of a major UN climate change conference in Paris this week, the coalition’s members say that enough isn’t being done from established organisations to drive forward research and investment into clean energy.

Writing on Facebook late Sunday night, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that “solving the clean energy problem is an essential part of building a better world … yet progress towards a sustainable energy system is too slow, and the current system doesn’t encourage the kind of innovation that will get us there faster.”

Likewise, the Coalition’s website says that “the existing system of basic research, clean energy investment, regulatory frameworks, and subsidies fails to sufficiently mobilize investment in truly transformative energy solutions for the future. We can’t wait for the system to change through normal cycles.”

In short: Established investors are moving much too slowly towards the renewable energy, and it’s too important to wait for that to sort itself out naturally.

Among the other “Investors” in this new “coalition” were the Puppetmaster himself, George Soros and fellow “Billionaire Philanthropist” Tom Steyer.

Which is interesting, because Breitbart.com’s Steve Milloy reported back on August 17th that

U.S. Securities and Exchange Act filings indicate that Soros has purchased an initial 1 million shares of Peabody Energy and 553,200 shares of Arch Coal, the two largest publicly traded U.S. coal companies. As pointed out last week, both companies have been driven perilously close to bankruptcy by the combination of President Obama’s “war on coal” and inexpensive natural gas brought on by the hydrofracturing revolution.

Under the hypothesis that not even socialists would leave trillions of dollars worth of a perfectly safe and clean energy source in the ground for the sake of the imaginary “climate crisis,” I posited that once the existing coal industry ownership was wiped out by President Obama’s regulatory onslaught, a new politically correct ownership would rehabilitate the fuel by contributing to Democrats.

Enter George Soros, a hardball investor and philanthropist to myriad left-wing causes, including the activist and “clean energy” rent-seeking movements that have helped take down the coal industry. In 2009, for example, Soros announced he would spend $1 billion in “clean energy” technology and create a San Francisco-based advocacy organization called the Climate Policy Initiative.

Less than a year ago the Soros’ Climate Policy Initiative issued a major report concluding that the world could save $1.8 trillion over the next two decades by transitioning away from coal. The report referred to coal reserves as “stranded assets” that were losing value as they were no longer needed.

Meanwhile, both Professional and Self-Proclaimed Political Pundits can not understand why Hillary Clinton is tanking so bady, whilt the “Rank Outsider”, Donald J. Trump’s Popularity continues to rise.

Y’know, it’s hard to run a Political Carnival Game on us “suckers”, once we have figured out what your “left hand” is doing.

In the case of the Democrats and their Presumptive Presidential Nominee, Hillary Clinton, the West Virginia Coal Miners sent those “Carnival Barkers” a message, load and clear:

IT’S THE ECONOMY, STUPID!

…AND YOU’RE RESPONSIBLE FOR IT!

The Sanders and Cruz Campaigns: Of Viability and Desperation

April 28, 2016

As the Primary Election Season gets closer to its end, signs of desperation are becoming apparent and newsworthy on both sides of the Political Aisle.

Cnn.com reports that

 

Bernie Sanders’ campaign is laying off more than 200 workers, campaign manager Jeff Weaver said Wednesday.

The campaign is downsizing from its current 550-member team to between 325 to 350 workers, said Weaver, who added that at one point the Sanders’ staff numbered more than 1,000.

The decision follows a bad night for Sanders, in which he lost four out of five East Coast states that voted on Tuesday.

“The calendar is coming closer to the end and there are not that many states going forward … it’s the natural evolution of every campaign,” Weaver told CNN.
Sanders announced the layoffs in an interview with The New York Times.
“It will be hundreds of staff members,” Sanders told the Times. “We have had a very large staff, which was designed to deal with 50 states in this country; 40 of the states are now behind us. So we have had a great staff, great people.”

 

When someone is let go from the World Wrestling Entertainment Corporation, what Bernie just did to his staffers is known as being “future endeavored”.

As in,

 

We wish them well in their future endeavors.

 

Evidently, America is not”Feeling the Bern.”

Meanwhile, on the other side of the Political Aisle…

CBS’ New York Local Affiliate reports that

 

Despite being mathematically eliminated from clinching the Republican nomination, Sen. Ted Cruz has picked a running mate.

Cruz tapped former technology executive Carly Fiorina to run as his vice presidential nominee.

The Texas senator unveiled his decision Wednesday afternoon in Indianapolis, calling Fiorina an “extraordinary leader.”

“It is unusual to make the announcement as early as we’re doing so now,” Cruz said.

He continued, “Why now? No one is getting to 1,237 delegates. We must unite.”

Already Wednesday, Fiorina seemed comfortable playing the traditional vice presidential campaign role of attacker, CBS2’s Tony Aiello reported.

“Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton both will be disastrous for this nation,” she said.

Cruz praised Fiorina’s path from secretary to chief executive officer and her past willingness to challenge GOP front-runner Donald Trump.

“Carly isn’t intimidated by bullies, because she’s faced challenges a lot worse than someone bellowing and yelling and insulting her face,” he said.

The remark was a reference to a Trump magazine interview where the frontrunner said of Fiorina, “Look at that face – would anyone vote for that?”

In lauding Fiorina, Cruz added, “Over and over again, Carly has shattered glass ceilings.”

Fiorina actually started singing on stage after accepting Cruz’s offer.

 

Funny, I thought it was the fat lady who was supposed to sing.

Ted Cruz’s actions in naming a vice presidential running mate, when he has not even gained the Republican nomination as their presidential candidate, is not only unprecedented , but is also a classic case of putting the cart before the horse

It is a move of desperation.

Make no mistake, Senator Cruz’s move is designed to not only generate buzz, is also designed to try to generate some momentum in a failing and flailing political campaign. The problem with this maneuver is the fact that, just as Johnny Mathis sang all those years ago, it is

 

Too much, Too little, Too late.

 

Both Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz, at this point in their campaigns, did not have a chance of becoming the Presidential Candidate of either of their political parties.

In Sanders case, he had several things going up against him. While most of his fellow Democrats do not have the guts to overtly call themselves Socialists, even though they are, Sanders went ahead and did it. By doing so, he limited his voter base to millennials, a generation of Americans who have not seem to grasp the concept that Socialism, in Marxist theory, is the step before Communism.

In fact, the only part of Bernie Sanders’ Political Platform that they appeared to have grasped, is his promise to provide Free College Tuition and to bestow upon them other free stuff from the largesse of a Nanny State Central Government, bought for with the money of Americans who actually work for a living.

Sanders’ Campaign was doomed from the start, as the powers-that-be had already chosen Hillary Clinton as the Democratic Presidential Candidate and had placed a political system within the Primaries to ensure that it happened.

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 is done, Cruz instead reached out to fellow politicians, seeking their support.

So now, as the chance to secure their respective political parties presidential nominations is an impossibility, these two Professional Politicians have chosen to try to remain, at least in their minds, viable candidates.

Unfortunately, for both of them, it appears that their campaigns are over, even if they don’t realize it.

The Political Primary Parade has passed both of them by. All that is left, is for the street sweeper is to clean up the mess.

Until He Comes,
