DNC 2016 Wraps Up With Hillary Lauding Her National Security Bona Fides. History is Embarrassed.

July 29, 2016

Hill-ISIS-LI

The ideas which now pass for brilliant innovations and advances are in fact mere revivals of ancient errors, and a further proof of the dictum that those who are ignorant of the past are condemned to repeat it.- Henry Hazlitt

Foxnews.com reports that

Hillary Clinton, declaring the country at a “moment of reckoning,” sealed her status in American history Thursday night as the first woman to top a major-party ticket, officially taking the torch from President Obama as the Democratic nominee for president — while delivering a blistering attack against Republican nominee Donald Trump, that challenged his fitness to occupy the Oval Office and set the tone for what promises to be a bruising three-month campaign. “The choice is clear,” she said in Philadelphia.  

The former secretary of state, senator and first lady used her convention address to pitch an optimistic message, even accusing Trump of taking his party from “Morning in America” to “Midnight in America.”

On the sidelines, Trump accused Democrats of creating a “fantasy world” at their convention and spreading a false message that “everything is wonderful.”

And he bashed Clinton’s address on Twitter: 

But Clinton said, “He wants us to fear the future and fear each other,” later announcing she accepts the nomination with “humility, determination and boundless confidence in America’s promise.”

At the same time, she warned Trump does not have the temperament to lead in dangerous times.

“He loses his cool at the slightest provocation,” Clinton said. “Imagine, if you dare, imagine … him in the Oval Office facing a real crisis. A man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons.”

After a primary campaign – and convention week – riven by party clashes, Clinton also used the address to reach out to Bernie Sanders supporters, telling them, “I want you to know, I’ve heard you. Your cause is our cause.”

The speech was still interrupted many times by noisy protests, which were soon drowned out by Clinton loyalists chanting, “Hillary!”

Meanwhile, gearing up for a cross-country campaign against Trump for every last vote, she openly reached out to disaffected Republicans and independents, as she vowed to fight for working people. 

“I will be a president for Democrats, Republicans, independents, for the struggling, the striving, the successful … for all Americans together,” she said.

A day after embracing Obama on the convention stage in Philadelphia, Clinton on Thursday also defended the sitting president’s record and suggested she’d build upon it — a move that could rally the divided base, but also make it easier for Trump to brand her campaign as representing four more years of the status quo. 

GOP boss Reince Priebus said in a statement after her address, “Hillary Clinton is the ultimate Washington insider at a time when Americans are eager to break with eight years of a Democrat status quo, and there’s no doubt her longtime pattern of shady conduct and double standards will continue if she is elected president.”

But Clinton said Thursday that Trump does not offer “real change.”

Clinton, even as she reached out to Republicans and independents, laid out a largely liberal agenda that at times echoed themes from Sanders’ campaign that have weaved their way into the party platform, on issues ranging from taxes to the minimum wage to immigration to health care.

She also took up one of Sanders’ marquee agenda items and vowed to work with her former primary rival to “make college tuition-free for the middle class and debt-free for all.”

Her address capped a dramatic week in Philadelphia that started with the abrupt resignation of party Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz amid yet another email scandal and ended with an all-hands-on-deck push for unity meant to ease unrest among Sanders supporters and others who spent the convention railing against the Democratic establishment.

Even on the final day, protesters organized events to encourage voters to de-register from the party. And as delegates streamed past the perimeter for the speeches, a contingent of anti-Clinton protesters shouted at the gates, “Hell no, DNC, we won’t vote for Hillary!”

The big question going forward is whether Democrats’ divisions are more damaging for their chances in November than are the Republican fractures for the GOP. While Trump rival Ted Cruz infamously did not endorse him in Cleveland, and Sanders did endorse Clinton, the Vermont senator’s supporters have been far less willing to forgive and forget and rally behind their party’s nominee. Also unclear is whether Clinton will enjoy a bump in popularity out of her convention, as several recent polls have shown Trump climbing after Cleveland.

Despite some suggestions by leading Democrats that the Philadelphia affair would stay positive, the week was equal parts Clinton advertisement and Trump take-down. Speakers brazenly ridiculed and caricatured Trump throughout as a selfish businessman who has no actual plan to execute his campaign promises.

Clinton ally and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo accused Trump of using “fear and anxiety to drive his ratings.”

Chelsea Clinton, though, the former first daughter and an important surrogate on the campaign trail, offered a pause from the attacks as she described childhood moments and painted a personal picture of Hillary the mother and grandmother.

“Every single memory I have of my mom is that regardless of what is happening in her life, she was always, always there for me,” she said, describing how her mother will now “drop everything” for a few minutes of FaceTime with her grandkids.

Chelsea filled in the biographical details for her mother the way Ivanka Trump did for her father at last week’s convention.

For his part, Donald Trump, who has held his own events and stayed in the headlines throughout the Philadelphia gathering, weighed in again Thursday, just hours before her speech. At a rally in Davenport, Iowa, he said Democratic convention-goers are telling “lies” and spreading a false message that “everything is wonderful.”  

“At Hillary Clinton’s convention this week, Democrats have been speaking about a world that doesn’t exist. A world where America has full employment, where there’s no such thing as radical Islamic terrorism, where the border is totally secured, and where thousands of innocent Americans have not suffered from rising crime in cities like Baltimore and Chicago,” Trump said in a written statement.

The Democrats’ closing convention night, though, included a sharper security focus than earlier in the week. Retired Marine Gen. John Allen, who led troops in Afghanistan, vouched Thursday for Clinton as the candidate who can keep the country “safe and free.”

“America will defeat ISIS,” he vowed, naming the terror enemy that seemingly was glossed over by earlier convention speakers. As he spoke, competing chants of “USA” and “No More War” broke out in the audience. 

There is a reason that ISIS was not spoken of at the 2016 Democratic National Convention.

The Democrat Establishment knew that, if they brought up the Muslim Terrorist Group, born during Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State, that it would give the Media carte blanche, even if the majority of them are all Liberal sycophants, to discuss all of  Monica Lewinsky’s boyfriend’s wife’s “Smart Power!” Failures as Secretary of State.

The list is long…and embarrassing.

Let’s talk about what a bang-up job that Former Secretary of State Clinton did in preserving our “National Security” during her tenure in that position, shall we?

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”.

President Ronald Reagan had a missile fired into Gaddafi’s bedroom, resulting in him keeping quiet for 25 years. Just sayin’…

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 enemies 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 just a bunch of regular 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.

When I first sat down to write today’s article, I considered the ironic Bizarro-World suspension of reality of  Failed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her minions criticizing Republican Presidential Candidate Donald J. Trump’s lack of experience in the field of National Security.

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, as I sit here at my computer.

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

I also remembered 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 envisioned 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 imagined 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 remembered 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.

Candidate 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.

You and your lackeys have no room to criticize anyone concerning their National Security “Bona Fides”.

Like the current occupant of the Oval Office, you will sell out Americans in a heartbeat, if it means furthering your own self-serving political agenda.

That is one reason why , according to a CBS Poll (Yes, CBS!) taken after the RNC last week, 67% of those responding still believe you to be untrustworthy..

Given your recorded history of self-serving, unethical ineptitude during your tenure as Secretary of State (the records that you did not shred), you should be ashamed to be running for the office of President of the United States of America.

But, your Machiavellian Ego and sense of entitlement will not allow you to be.

Luckily, as we head toward the Presidential Election in November, unlike your enablers in the Democratic Party and the Main Stream Media, we have a Republican Candidate who is not afraid to call you on it.

Anti-Trumpers Attempt Coup at RNC Last Night. Epic Failure Ensues.

July 19, 2016

All-Aboard-600-LAThe 2016 Republican National Convention kicked off in Cleveland last night in epic fashion, with dynamic speakers and an optimistic hopefulness that America will be “healed’ of this petulant malaise that we have been suffering under since January 21st of 2009.

The convention promises to be a celebration of massive proportions.

However, Opening Night proved the old adage that “Every party must have a pooper”.

In this case, there were a bunch of them.

According to Bloomberg Politics,

Republican factions trying to stop Donald Trump’s presidential nomination and change party guidelines noisily disrupted a vote on convention rules, putting on full display the fissures in the party on the first day of its national gathering.

Delegates from Colorado were seen walking out of the convention hall, and former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli was spotted angrily throwing his convention credentials to the floor after an effort to seek a roll-call vote on convention rules was cut
The disruption on Monday came as Trump and party officials were opening what is supposed to be a rallying point for Republicans leading into the general election. After the ruckus, the convention went into recess until a schedule of prime-time events and speakers, including the presumptive nominee’s appearance in the hall Monday night to introduce his wife, Melania. It was unclear whether there would be further protests.

 What should have been a procedural vote erupted in chanting and exchanges of angry words among delegates gathered in Cleveland.

Senator Mike Lee of Utah, who like Cuccinelli supported Texas Senator Ted Cruz in the nomination campaign, told reporters on the floor of the arena where the convention’s being held that he was still trying to trying to get an answer to why party officials blocked a roll-call vote on the rules that would govern the convention and set guidelines for nominating process.

“This is not about Mr. Trump,” he said. “This is about having a fair rules process.”

Delegate Joel Mattila, wearing a Trump “Make America Great” hat, yelled “sour grapes” to Lee.

“Is it sour grapes to ask for a roll call vote?” Lee replied.

The anti-Trump delegates were seeking changes that would give them the ability to vote for someone other than Trump as well as altering other rules, such as limiting participation in future presidential primaries and caucuses to only registered Republicans.

While it was unlikely to stop Trump, who won far more delegates than he needs for the nomination, a roll call vote on the rules would have given anti-Trump delegates more opportunity to voice their disapproval. It potentially also could have caused an embarrassing delay in the schedule for the convention’s prime-time lineup on its opening day.

Representative Steve Womack of Arkansas, sitting as temporary chairman of the convention, asked for a voice vote to approve the rules, even as delegates who wanted a roll call began shouting their disapproval.

Despite notable shouts of “nay” from the floor, Womack declared the panel’s report had been approved and left the stage. There was a roar from delegates shouting and chanting “roll call vote!”

Several minutes later, Womack returned and said the measure had passed. Nine states had originally asked the chairman’s decision be subject to a roll call vote, he said, but since three states had withdrawn their support, the six remaining didn’t meet the requirement of eight needed to force a roll call.

“The chair has found insufficient support for the request for a record vote,” Womack said, ruling out the possibility of a roll call.

Supporters of the roll-call vote were left fuming.

Manette Merrill, a delegate from Washington, said microphones were turned off to avoid protesting.

“They want to shut us down,” she said.

Former Senator Gordon Humphrey said he filed requisite signatures to force a roll-call vote. Humphrey, a New Hampshire delegate who backed Ohio Governor John Kasich, said he wasn’t confident that RNC staff had the “courage” or “independence” to “stand up” to pressure from the Trump organization to disallow or ignore petitions.

In an interview with MSNBC, he called the presumptive nominee’s supporters “brown shirts”  who “act like fascists.”

 “They rolled through. They cheated. That’s what you just saw — them violate their own rules,” Cuccinelli told MSNBC.

Less than an hour after the display of disunity on the floor, delegates were asked to look to the back of the arena to pose for a sort of family photo documenting their gathering in Cleveland.

Delegates opposed to Trump tried to change party rules last week to block his nomination by allowing delegates to vote their consciences regardless of how their state voted earlier this year in primaries and caucuses.

Trump argued that millions of Republicans have spoken in the primary elections and caucuses earlier this year and selected him to be their standard-bearer in a race against presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in November.

The billionaire was scheduled to accept the nomination in a formal speech on Thursday.

As a Christian American Conservative, I can understand some Conservatives’ reluctance to support Donald J.Trump.

That being said, at this late stage, the unrealistic expectation of “launching a coup” on the Opening Night of the Republican National Convention, through which, somehow, to steal the Republican Presidential Nomination from Trump or the victory in the General Election from Trump, simply because the Primary Elections, due to the will of the American people, had not gone the way that you envisioned it, amounts to nothing more than a willful act of sabotage, which could have enabled the loathsome Hillary Clinton to become President.

The failure of Senator Ted Cruz’s campaign to become the Republican nominee, is attributable to no one except his Campaign Advisors and the Senator, himself.

Instead of attempting to form a coalition, as Trump has, as exhibited last night by the wonderful Opening Night Speakers, the Cruz Campaign, along with the unsolicited help of Radio Talk Show Host and Real-Life Elmer Gantry , Glenn Beck, positioned themselves, whether accidentally or on purpose, to resemble an old fashioned Tent Revival, at times, reminiscent of the old Neil Diamond song, “Brother Love’s Traveling Salvation Show”.

While I am also extremely concerned about the social issues which face this country and the slippery slope that we seem to be traveling on, at this time, that is not what is foremost on the minds of the American Voting public.

Americans are living paycheck-to-paycheck, while more and more of us, through no fault of our own, are being expunged from the American Workforce, with that number now being well over 94, 400, 000.

Meanwhile, up on Capitol Hill, those whom we have voted into office to represent us, are more intent on reaching across the aisle, fulfilling the interests of a small minority of Americans, who would radically change this nation into something unrecognizable, turning The Shining City Upon the Hill into the World’s Piggy Bank and Doormat.

Hillary Clinton must not be given the chance to continue the failed policies of Barack Hussein Obama, facilitating an accelerated Ascent of America into an abyss that we may never be able to climb out of.

Certain members of the Republican establishment have already announced that they will not support Trump, even if he is the Republican Nominee.

It would have been the height of irony and a disservice to American Conservatives who have gone before, if last night’s last-ditch attempt by a group of “Conservatives”, to launch a coup at the convention, undid all of the hard work of those who have tried to prevent this country’s destruction by an out-of-control Federal Government which panders to Special Interest Groups, instead of the American voters, while aligning themselves with the Establishment, or Vichy, Republicans, whose disdain for average Americans, was the impetus for Donald J’ Trump’s victory in the Republican Primaries.

If Republican Voters did not want Donald J. Trump as their Republican Presiden6tial Candidate, they would not have voted for himin record numbers in the Rpublican Primary Elections.

Now is not the time for temper tantrums, now is the time for unity…and maturity.

It is time to begin the process of taking America back.

Emailgate, The Rule of Law, and the “NeverTrumpers”

July 7, 2016

Cut-Off-600-nrdUp on Capitol Hill this morning, those who are supposed to be our Public Servants will put on a Dog and Pony Show, which promises to be interesting, but not impactful.

I hope that I am wrong.

Foxnews.com reports that

FBI Director James Comey will explain Thursday to House lawmakers his bombshell decision not to recommend criminal charges against Hillary Clinton over her handling of sensitive emails.

Comey, who took no questions after announcing his decision Tuesday, agreed to go before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee after several lawmakers sought an explanation. In saying he would not press the Justice Department to pursue an indictment against the likely Democrat nominee for president, Comey nonetheless laid out a strong case that she had violated laws regulating government employees’ safeguarding of sensitive emails.

“The FBI’s recommendation is surprising and confusing,” Committee Chairman Jason Chaffee, R-Utah, said. “The fact pattern presented by Director Comey makes clear Secretary Clinton violated the law. Individuals who intentionally skirt the law must be held accountable. Congress and the American people have a right to understand the depth and breadth of the FBI’s investigation.”

Comey said 110 emails in 52 email chains discovered on Clinton’s unauthorized server were classified at the time they were sent or received, including some that were “top secret.” He also said that while the probe did not prove Clinton’s server was hacked, it may have been – and he pointedly noted that she used unsecure devices while visiting countries hostile to the U.S.

In addition to Chaffee, Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., and Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., wrote the FBI director demanding to know how he justified his decision.

House and Senate judiciary committees could also seek testimony from Comey and his boss, Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

Lynch was already slated to testify next Tuesday at a House Oversight Committee hearing where Fox News has learned she will be questioned about the email investigation, and possibly her secret meeting with former President Bill Clinton just days before her department dropped the email case against the former first lady.

Coney’s decision was seen in many quarters as a punt. By branding Clinton’s use of unauthorized servers to send and receive sensitive — and in some cases top secret — information as “extremely careless,” Comey gave Clinton’s critics plenty of ammunition.

Rush Limbaugh made the following observations during his nationally syndicated Radio Program, yesterday…

Now, obviously criminal types have no respect for it, by definition.  But we’re not talking about criminals.  We’re talking about people in public life.  We’re talking about elected officials who campaign and seek our votes for all kinds of reasons.  And one of the things that is paramount in every election is the attempt to elect people who are of impeccable character, who are honest, who have integrity, who will thus respect the rule of law.  They run for president, they run for vice president, Senate, House, mayor, whatever, there is a United States Constitution, there are state constitutions, there is the oath of office.  It all matters.

We assume that the people who seek votes, who want to hold these high offices, we have always been able to assume they were people, we might disagree with politically or ideologically, but they had a common acceptance and reverence and respect for the governing documents that held the country together and defined it.  That’s what we’re losing here.  You can see it in the fight over the Second Amendment.  You can see it in any number of ways that the Democrats feel like they’re hamstrung by it.

To them, the Constitution is unfair, it’s too limiting, it’s is antiquated, it’s outdated, and it’s so insignificant now, you don’t even have to go through the legal process of amending it.  You can just ignore it because these are modern times, and it was written so long ago, and the Founders couldn’t possibly have anticipated what life would be like today.  Therefore, what they wrote should not be automatically applicable to life today.  That is the absence of respect for the rule of law.  And it’s exactly what’s happening.

Liberalism scares me, folks.  I come across here as adamantly opposed to it, but I do so because it scares me.  Liberalism, socialism, communism, they scare me. They frighten me because of what they portend life to become should they become dominant governmental mandates, should it become the way our government is operating.  Because it all equals the loss of liberty.

No matter how you slice it, the advent of liberalism, the spread of liberalism must, in order to spread, in order to grow, people have to lose freedom, people have to lose liberty, because liberalism is the amassing of power at the government level and as much as they can get.  And in order for them to have it, they have to take it.

As I was thinking about where to go at this point in this post, in regards to the chances of Presumptive Republican Candidate, Donald J. Trump, my mind (such as it is) began to analyze what Trump has said in the past.

If he had “played by the rules”, regarding upholding the Washingtonian Status Quo, he would not be where he is.

He continues to fight, not only those on the Democrat Side of the aisle, who are determined to make the Queen of Mean, Hillary Clinton, our next President, but, also those Republicans, and self-proclaimed “True Conservatives”, who want to keep Trump from becoming President of the United States of America at all costs, even if it means sacrificing our children’s and grandchildren’s future to do it.

You have either watched them on television, encountered them on Facebook Political Pages, or attempted to have a conversation with them in person.

They are the #NeverTrumpers.

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

The times that I have tuned in, during the course of the Republican Primaries, it sounded like Beck was possessed with the spirit of the late, great Ricardo Montalban, in his scene-stealing role as Khan in “Star Trek II”. I still fully expect to hear him say at one point:

[quoting from Melville’s Moby Dick] To the last, I will grapple with thee… from Hell’s heart, I stab at thee! For hate’s sake, I spit my last breath at thee!

As the spot-on cartoon that I used for the blog this morning, courtesy of the creative genius of Antonio F. Branco, illustrates, the #NeverTrumpers’ selfish obsession hurts themselves, as well as the country.

Holding one’s breath until they turn blue, or telling a Christian American Conservative that they are somehow condemned to Hell and are Unpatriotic, for voting for and supporting Donald J. Trump in his quest to become the next President of the United States of America, is not going to change the reality of the situation.

Neither will staying at home and not voting this November.

That’s been tried before.

That is how we got stuck with Petulant President Pantywaist.

Finally, if these “NeverTrumpers”, who claim to be Republicans, like Political Pundits Bill Kristol and George Will,  decide to pull a last-minute double-cross and have a Brokered Convention, or form a “Third Party”, nominating their own Moderate Milksop of a Presidential Candidate, America will be swearing-in Crooked Hillary as President next January.

Quite frankly…

If you hate Donald J. Trump so much, that you are willing to sacrifice America’s Future to get your “revenge”, seek professional help.

Or…change your last name to Khan…or Ahab.

We must never have someone who believes that they are above the law sitting behind the desk in the Oval Office in the most powerful position in the Free World.

Bubba and Loretta: Everybody Sing…”We’re Meetin’ on a Jet Plane…”

June 30, 2016

Yesterday, average Americans witnessed what was either one of the dumbest moves in political campaign history or one of the shrewdest moves ever made by a sitting Attorney General.

Politico.Com reports that

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest praised Attorney Gen. Loretta Lynch for her direct answer to questions about her tarmac summit with former President Bill Clinton.

The same could not be said of Earnest’s own answers to questions about its propriety.

Repeatedly, reporters on Thursday asked Earnest whether President Barack Obama approved of Clinton’s social visit with Lynch and her husband as her plane sat at the Phoenix airport on Tuesday even as her Justice Department investigates Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server in the midst of a presidential campaign. Repeatedly, Earnest deflected, instead stressing Obama’s insistence that the investigation should be conducted without political interference – and Lynch’s record on upholding that principle.

“I wasn’t there for the meeting,” Earnest said when pressed on whether the White House was concerned not simply about how the meeting might affect the underlying investigation but rather how the mere fact of it could create the appearance of political influence. “But the attorney general was, she was asked a direct question about it, and she answered it. Again, I think that was consistent with everybody’s expectations.”

Lynch told reporters Tuesday that her conversation with Clinton “was a great deal about his grandchildren. It was primarily social and about our travels; he mentioned golf he played in Phoenix.”

Lynch also noted that the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s inquiry into Clinton’s private email server at the State Department is being conducted by career agents.

But her answers haven’t quieted criticism. Donald Trump pointed to it as evidence of a “rigged system,” and this Sun Belt runway equivalent of the much-maligned Georgetown cocktail party plays easily into the hands of anti-establishment critics.

Even some Democratic lawmakers have said the meeting “doesn’t send the right signal,” as Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) put it in a television interview Thursday.

While Earnest wouldn’t “second-guess” the investigation or pass judgment on Lynch’s meeting, he did acknowledge that it deserved scrutiny – and that she did need to offer the public some reassurance.

Uh huh.

I think that I may have a clue as to what Loretta and Bubba talked about on that jet.

The Daily Caller reports that

Department of Justice officials filed a motion in federal court late Wednesday seeking a 27-month delay in producing correspondence between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s four top aides and officials with the Clinton Foundation and Teneo Holdings, a closely allied public relations firm that Bill Clinton helped launch.


If the court permits the delay, the public won’t be able to read the communications until October 2018, about 22 months into her prospective first term as President. The four senior Clinton aides involved were Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Michael Fuchs, Ambassador-At-Large Melanne Verveer, Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills, and Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin.


Convenient, huh?

The meeting occurred just hours before the Department of Justice asked for the delay.

Now, why would someone as smart as Bill Clinton, the former president of United States of America comma and attorney general Loretta Lynch, have a meeting that has such an appearance of impropriety?

There are several possibilities.

The first possibility it’s obvious. But I met with the attorney general in order to plead with her to let Hillary off the hook and to not invite her for her treasonous behavior in her email scandal.

The Clintons have always thought they were above the law. Hillary has left a trail of bodies between Arkansas and Washington DC, and nothing has ever happened to her. But comma even for the clintons, such a blatant move would be inherently stupid. And, it would not help her presidential campaign one bit.

Or, perhaps it was Loretta Lynch’s camp that leaked the information of the clandestine meeting to the local news station in order to recuse herself from the matter. This could be possible because it is well known that the FBI Director is a very honest man and a straight-up guy who will indict Hillary Clinton if the evidence is there to do so.

And, it is.

The last possible Theory as to why Bubba and Miss Loretta had the clandestine meeting on that jet is that he was trying to leverage her by offering her a possible position on the Supreme Court if Hillary gets elected President the United States of America. Again, the clintons have always considered themselves to be above the law and they’re not beyond political chicanery such as that.

The bottom line is, whatever the purpose of that meeting on the tarmac was, nothing will happen. Simply because, boys and girls, Democrat Politicians areabove the rules that apply to you and me. It does not matter if there is an appearance of impropriety comma nor does it matter if actual political chicanery,including bribery, happened onboard that plane.

Up on Capitol Hill, nothing will happen.

However, out here in Flyover Country, things are already happening as Rasmussen Reports posted a national poll yesterday showing that Donald J. Trump has taken a four-point lead and popularity over Hillary Clinton.

In my opinion, this is a lead that will continue to grow as low-information voters wake up to the fact that Hillary Clinton is in this race for herself, and not for them.

Between the information that Donald Trump and his Campaign Staff are sharing about her and the revelations being made about her reprehensible Behavior as First Lady and the information being shared by a Former Secret Service Agent who witnessed it firsthand, the American people are watching Hillary Clinton’s mask drop.

And, it is not a very pretty sight to behold.

Because, as the old saying goes,

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

Election 2016: Little White Lies, Bald-faced Lies, and National Polls

June 29, 2016

The latest Quinnipiac University Poll is out and it is sure to start a National Buzz.

Democrat Hillary Clinton has 42 percent to Republican Donald Trump’s 40 percent – too close to call – as American voters say neither candidate would be a good president and that the campaign has increased hatred and prejudice in the nation, according to a Quinnipiac University National poll released today.

This compares to results of a June 1 national poll by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN- uh-pe-ack) University, showing Clinton edging Trump 45 – 41 percent.

When third party candidates are added to today’s survey, Clinton gets 39 percent with Trump at 37 percent. Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson gets 8 percent and Green Party candidate Jill Stein gets 4 percent.

“The 2016 election has increased the level of hatred and prejudice in the U.S.,” 61 percent of American voters say. Another 34 percent say it has had no impact. Of that 61 percent, 67 percent blame the Trump campaign and 16 percent blame the Clinton campaign.

“It would be difficult to imagine a less flattering from-the-gut reaction to Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

“This is where we are. Voters find themselves in the middle of a mean-spirited, scorched earth campaign between two candidates they don’t like. And they don’t think either candidate would be a good president.”

American voters are deeply divided along gender, racial, age and party lines. Women back Clinton 50 – 33 percent while men back Trump 47 – 34 percent.

White voters back Trump 47 – 34 percent. Black voters back Clinton 91 – 1 percent and Hispanic voters back her 50 – 33 percent. Voters 18 to 34 years old go Democratic 48 – 23 percent, while voters over 65 years old go Republican 51 – 35 percent.

Democrats go to Clinton 89 – 3 percent, as Republicans go to Trump 84 – 6 percent. Independent voters are divided with 36 percent for Trump and 34 percent for Clinton.

Both top candidates get negative favorability ratings, 34 – 57 percent for Trump and 37 – 57 percent for Clinton.

Trump will not be a good president, American voters say 58 – 35 percent.

Clinton will not be a good president, voters say 53 – 43 percent.

American voters say 58 – 33 percent that Clinton is better prepared to be president than Trump; 53 – 33 percent that she is more intelligent and 46 – 37 percent that she has higher moral standards. But voters say 45 – 37 percent that Trump is more honest and trustworthy and 49 – 43 percent that he is a stronger leader.

Interesting, huh?

What is even more interesting is the fact that this poll is weighted against him.

If you are like me, you grew up hearing that there are 3 types of lies in this world. Hence the title of today’s blog.

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.

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.

And, boys and girls, that is why National Polls are always weighted in favor of the Democratic Party.

So, there you have it. 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.

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.

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.

Trump Secures Needed Delegates. Pundits Call For “Moderation”. Should He? H@!! no.

May 27, 2016

Fliped-Off-600-LAAs you undoubtedly know by now, yesterday, American Businessman and Entrepreneur Donald J. Trump secured 1,238 Delegates, securing the Republican Party’s Nomination as their Presidential Candidate.

Of course, now will come the cries from all of the “Political Pundits”, both professional and self-proclaimed, insisting that Trump “tone it down” and “move to the middle”.

Rush Limbaugh offered the following advice in his opening monologue on his radio show yesterday:

There are people who tell Trump, “You’ve gotta change, now. You have won the nomination.  It’s not the primaries.  It’s the general.  You have to change.”  And what that means is: “You have to tone it down! You have to dial it back.  You have to become more presidential.”  Whatever the advice is, it will consist of people thinking that Trump now has to grow in stature, in office, and drop whatever it is that worked during the primaries because they’re over now, and we’re on to the general, and it’s not a whole slate of opponents. It’s one opponent, and there’s all kinds of money involved now.

And the biggest mistake Trump could make would be to take any of that advice.  The biggest mistake Trump could make would be to listen to anybody who tells him it’s time to change.  Now, some of the advice is intended to sabotage, even people supposedly in your own circle.  Folks, there’s envy and there’s jealousy within every organization, and in something like Trump’s — which is red hot. It is the focus of attention in the modern world today, and everybody involved wants the light to shine on them, too.  It’s human nature.

… Everybody who is a powerful personality, who is generating a lot of heat, who is winning at what he’s doing and Trump’s doing all of that by a multiple factor of 10, Trump just owns it right now. And there are people that don’t like that. There are people that want to be part of it. There are people who want you to think they are responsible for it. There are all kinds of people surrounding Trump right now, and I’m guarantee you that he’s being advised by… I don’t know who they are, but I will guarantee you he’s being advised to change.

He’s being advised… He’s being told by some people, “You can’t do it this way! You can’t keep doing it the way you’re doing it. You’ve got to change. You’ve got to become more president. You’ve got to do,” whatever. He’s got people on his staff telling him to ignore that, too. Don’t… He’s got all kinds there. The point is, he ought not listen to anybody except the people he goes to to ask questions. But if somebody comes in and starts giving him advice, let it go in one ear and out the other.

Depending on who the person is, be respectful. But Trump’s instincts are just fine, and he had better continue to trust them. He had better not start doubting them. He’d better not let other people make him doubt them.

I agree with Rush.

Trump does not need to change who he is.

As his rising Popularity Polls show, Trump is striking 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”.

To put it in simple terms, Americans are angry.

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

That anger, a result of Obama’s 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 the Conservative Voting Base, 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 94 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.

It makes you want to give up…daily.

But, I digress…

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.

Trump is building a Coalition.

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.

Paul Ryan and the Vichy Republicans, as I dubbed the Republican Establishment a while back, until recently, have hung onto a slim hope that they could, perhaps, somehow derail “The Trump Train”, through the “power” of Republican Moderation, a “power” which has turned out to be as big a gross overestimation as the one regarding the invincibility of the RMS Titanic.

Average Americans will no longer tolerate a Republican Party who would rather be enablers of those who wish to “radically change” America, than be seen as opposing them.

The meteoric political success of Trump’s is partially a matter of timing.

Also, Trump is not afraid of hard work, as shown by his successful business career.

Trump has demonstrated at the past, as Rush mentioned, that he has great instincts.

These instincts have served him well in his Presidential Campaign.

Trump was in the right place at the right time with the right message.

Donald J. Trump is unabashedly American and an advocate for American Exceptionalism.

Trump speaks of “possibilities” and is offering a view from outside of the Washington Beltway.

The reason Trump is winning so many votes, including those of Democrats?

He is offering the possibility of a brand new “Morning in America”.

And. voters are desperate to wake up from this Long National Nightmare.

New Poll Shows That Trump is More Popular Than Hillary (Well, Duuuh!)

May 19, 2016

Hills-Are-Alive-600-nrd-1To paraphrase Obama’s “Former” Pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright,

Hillary Clinton’s chickeeens…are comin’ home…to roost!

According to Foxnews.com,

American voters dislike Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

A record 61 percent have a negative view of the likely Democratic nominee, according to a Fox News poll released Wednesday.  That’s up from 58 percent in March.

Fifty-six percent have an unfavorable view of Trump — though that’s actually good news for Donald.  Because it was 65 percent two months ago (that was a record high).

Thirty-seven percent have a favorable opinion of Clinton, down two points from 39 percent in March, establishing a new low.  The likely Republican nominee’s favorable jumped over the same time period: 41 percent view Trump positively, up from 31 percent in March.

“The standard for unpopular presidential candidates has been Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan in 1980, but we have two new champions,” says Republican pollster Daron Shaw, who conducts the Fox News Poll with Democratic pollster Chris Anderson.  “Clinton and Trump rate lower than disastrous candidates like Mondale or Dole”

Among women, one in three views Trump positively (33 percent), while nearly twice as many view him negatively (63 percent).  That’s little changed — even going back to last fall.  He was underwater by more than 30 points among women in September: 31-62 percent.

It’s a different story among self-identified Republican women.  The poll finds they are almost twice as likely to have a positive opinion of Trump.  And it keeps improving.  Currently, 65 percent of GOP women view him favorably, up from 55 percent in March — and 49 percent in September.  Thirty-one percent view him negatively today.

For comparison, Trump’s net -30 rating among women is better than Clinton’s net -44 rating among men (27 favorable vs. 71 unfavorable).  She even has a net negative rating among women:  46 favorable vs. 53 unfavorable.

Did you catch in the article where it stated that the standard for unpopular candidates were Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan?

In the case of both those candidates, their unpopularity was a direct result of their perceived character andy personalities as formed in the minds of the public by the Main Stream Media.

Carter was perceived by African-Americans as being vacillating and weak. Reagan was perceived, as portrayed by Liberals, on both sides of the Political Aisle, as being too old to be President of the United States and not that bright.

Of course, the first assessment was spot-on. The second assessment prove to be their greatest underestimating of a Presidential Candidate since the Rail-Splitter from Illinois.

As we move toward this summer’s Democrat and Republican Conventions, the American Public, as shown by this latest poll, is beginning to focus on the two Presumptive Presidential Candidates.

If you really consider the results of the poll, they are not that surprising at all.

Hillary Clinton, as shown by the Democrat West Virginia Primary, views herself as smarter than average Americans.

She comes off in public as being snotty, cold, and insincere…because she is

This is nothing new.

In the Spring of 1974, Hillary 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.

Witness her behavior during the entire investigation regarding the events of that horrific night of September 11, 2012, on the grounds of the U.S. Embassy Compound in Benghazi, Libya.

We learned on October 26, 2012, that there were two drones circling overhead, as four brave Americans were being slaughtered. Obama and his Administration knew exactly what was happening, yet, for the sake of political expediency, chose to do nothing about it.

What Hillary’s  appearance before the Benghazi Hearings showed, was a pathological predilection for dishonesty, insincerity, and inappropriateness, not only on the part of Former Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton,  but the whole Obama Administration, as well, from the top on down.

They all knew that the cause of the attacks was not some stupid Youtube Video, but a full-blown Muslim Terrorist Attack.

However, for the sake of Political Expediency…and the re-election of President Barack Hussein Obama and the legacy of his rapidly-failing Foreign Policy, known as Smart Power!, they had to quickly come up with an excuse for their liability in the deaths of those four brave Americans.

And now, Hillary Rodham Clinton, with her Oscar-worthy Performance in front of the House Committee, which including circuitous answers to Yes or No Questions and inappropriate smirks, accompanied by cackling laughter, echoes across the years, proving completely true and accurate as to what I and my fellow Conservative Americans have said about her all along:

She is a sociopath, who envisions herself to be smarter than everybody else, above the law, and White House-bound, because, “it’s her turn”.

On the other hand, 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 is steadily gaining popularity about 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, have backfired in spectacular fashion.

Foxnews.com reports on the latest example…

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump used the word “rape” Wednesday evening to describe alleged sexual misconduct by former President Bill Clinton. 

Trump made the comment during an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity. The real estate mogul was answering questions about an unflattering story published this past weekend by The New York Times involving his relationships with women when he turned his attention to Bill Clinton.

“By the way, you know, it’s not like the worst things, OK,” Trump said. “You look at what Clinton’s gone through with all of the problems and all of the things that he’s done.”

Hannity went on to question whether the newspaper would interview women including Juanita Broaddrick, Paula Jones and Kathleen Willey. All three have accused Bill Clinton of sexual misconduct.

“In one case, it’s about exposure. In another case, it’s about groping and fondling and touching against a woman’s will,” Hannity said.

“And rape,” Trump responded.

Ouch. That’s going to leave a mark.

Even in the face of polls like the one above. every day, on Political Websites and Facebook Political Pages, Conservatives and Liberals, alike, are arguing from dust to dawn, whether Trump can actually win the presidency.

One of the oft-repeated arguments that they present is a modern version of the final argument that Mark Green made in a recent article:

Why should Liberals vote for Trump, when they can vote for Clinton or Sanders?

The answer to that is as obvious as Kim Kardashian’s brunette roots (if you actually noticed them in the two “nekkid [that is when you are sans clothes and you’re up to something] selfies” that she released a while back).

The Democrat Candidates STINK ON ICE.

Would you vote for them?

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.

Trump is building a Coalition.

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.

While I would never equate Trump with Ronaldus Magnus, who was mentioned in the poll that I posted earlier, they do have this much in common: Like Reagan, Trump is unabashedly America and an advocate for American Exceptionalism.

Trump speaks of “possibilities” and is offering a view from outside of the Washington Beltway.

The reason Trump is winning so many votes, including those of Democrats?

He is offering the possibility of a brand new “Morning in America”.

And. voters are desperate to wake up from this Long National Nightmare.

Group of “Conservatives” to Seek Third-Party Candidate to Challenge Trump. Salvation or Sabotage?

May 7, 2016

H. Ross Perot is an very successful, outspoken American Businessman, who has played the part of “spoiler” in two unsuccessful campaigns for the Presidency of the United States of America.

Biography.com offers the following summary:


Always politically outspoken, Perot decided to step off the sidelines and get into the action in the spring of 1992. He was disappointed in President George Bush and didn’t like any of the potential Democratic candidates. Positioning himself as a political outsider, Perot wrote about his ideas for rebuilding a troubled America in United We Stand: How We Can Take Back Our Country. He also broadcasted his political views in infomercials, using his substantial wealth to buy air time across the country. Perot had a down-home style and a habit for speaking in snappy sound-bites, which appealed to many members of the voting public. As journalist Paul Burka wrote in Texas Monthly, “Perot is the candidate of the disaffected, the disenchanted, the fed up: the people whose contempt for politics has passed beyond cynicism to despair.”


His campaign seemed to gather momentum as the political race heated up. Perot promoted himself as a reformer, building on his success with the Texas Public Education system in the 1980s. But, in July, he dropped out of the race, later claiming that the Republican Party had plans to embarrass his daughter Carolyn before her wedding. According to The New York Times, Perot believed that the Bush campaign was going to start a rumor about his daughter’s sexuality.


Perot returned to the race in October with only weeks left before the election. Despite this setback, he managed to garner nearly 19 percent of the popular vote. Perot was the first independent candidate since Teddy Roosevelt in 1912 to receive this large of a share of the popular vote. Still the lion’s share of voters chose Democrat Bill Clinton. Perot faced off against Clinton again in 1996, but his campaign failed to win over much public support.

The following report may be found under the category of “Those Who Ignore History…”.

Businessinsider.com reports that

Now that Donald Trump is the last man standing in the Republican presidential race, his critics in the party are intensifying their search for a candidate they could back as a serious third-party alternative.

Political operatives are courting donors, calling potential candidates and developing legal contingency plans for overcoming onerous ballot-qualification laws.

“This is as much as anything a battle for the future of American party politics,” said Republican strategist Joel Searby, who is working with conservative writer Bill Kristol, among others, to identify a third-party candidate for the November 8 presidential election.

The group Conservatives Against Trump, which includes blogger Erick Erickson, has been holding calls and meetings to discuss third-party candidates as well as other options to stop the New York billionaire from winning the White House.

The hurdles for a third-party candidacy are high. No independent candidate has ever won a presidential election, though some have played spoilers. But the efforts by the Republican groups underscore the unusual divisiveness of Trump’s candidacy within Republican ranks ahead of a likely general-election fight with Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton.

Trump’s opposition to free trade is at odds with the views of many Republicans, especially in the party’s business wing. Many of Trump’s critics also find his rhetoric offensive, including his call to temporarily bar Muslims from entering the country and his comment describing some Mexican immigrants to the US as rapists and drug dealers.

Some Republicans say they worry that any third-party candidate would only siphon votes away from Trump and help Clinton win the election.

Ralph Nader’s run as the Green Party candidate in the 2000 presidential election has been blamed by some Democrats for the razor-thin loss of Democratic nominee Al Gore to George W. Bush. Ross Perot’s independent candidacy in 1992 was seen by some Republicans as contributing to President George H.W. Bush’s loss to Democrat Bill Clinton.

One outcome, though rare, may be that no candidate crosses the necessary threshold of 270 votes in the US Electoral College. In that case, the vote for the next president would pass to the US House of Representatives, currently controlled by Republicans.

Deborah DeMoss Fonseca, who recruited donors for former Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush and is working with Conservatives Against Trump, said her group was trying to find a candidate who would be high-profile enough to compete with Trump and Clinton.

As a Christian American Conservative,
I can understand some Conservatives’ reluctance to support Donald J.Trump.

That being said, at this late stage, the unrealistic expectation of finding a viable Third-Party Candidate, by which, somehow, to steal the Republican Presidential Nomination from Trump or the victory in the General Election from Trump, simply because the Primary Elections, due to the will of the American people, has not gone the way that you envisioned it, amounts to nothing more than a willful act of sabotage, which could enable the loathsome Hillary Clinton to become President.

The failure of Senator Ted Cruz’s campaign to become the Republican nominee, is attributable to no one except his Campaign Advisors and the Senator, himself.

Instead of attempting to form a coalition, as Trump has been able to do, the Cruz Campaign, along with the unsolicited help of Radio Talk Show Host and Real-Life Elmer Gantry , Glenn Beck, positioned themselves, whether accidentally or on purpose, to resemble an old fashioned Tent Revival, at times, reminiscent of the old Neil Diamond song, “Brother Love’s Traveling Salvation Show”.

While I am also extremely concerned about the social issues which face this country and the slippery slope that we seem to be traveling on, at this time, that is not what is foremost on the minds of the American Voting public.

Americans are living paycheck-to-paycheck, while more and more of us, through no fault of our own, are being expunged from the American Workforce, with that number now being well over 94, 400, 000.

Meanwhile, up on Capitol Hill, those whom we have voted into office to represent us, are more intent on reaching across the aisle, fulfilling the interests of a small minority of Americans, who would radically change this nation into something unrecognizable, turning The Shining City Upon the Hill into the World’s Piggy Bank and Doormat.

Hillary Clinton must not be given the chance to continue the failed policies of Barack Hussein Obama, facilitating an accelerated Ascent of America into an abyss that we may never be able to climb out of.

Certain members of the Republican establishment have already announced that they will not support Trump, even if he is the Republican Nominee.

It would be the height of irony and a disservice to American Conservatives who have gone before, if this current attempt by this group of “Conservatives”, to launch a third-party candidate, undos all the hard work of those who have tried to prevent this country’s destruction by an out-of-control Federal Government which panders to Special Interest Groups, instead of the American voters, while inadvertently aligning themselves with these Establishment Republicans.

Now is not the time for temper tantrums, now is the time for maturity.

It is time to begin the process of taking America back.

Until He Comes,

KJ
