The real scandal of the Clinton Foundation. It is the money laundering.

Forget the contributors.  Just look at the return on investment.  According to the Federalist, the foundation only spends 15% on charity, the rest must be “overhead.”

Between 2009 and 2012, the Clinton Foundation raised over $500 million dollars according to a review of IRS documents by The Federalist (2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008). A measly 15 percent of that, or $75 million, went towards programmatic grants. More than $25 million went to fund travel expenses. Nearly $110 million went toward employee salaries and benefits. And a whopping $290 million during that period — nearly 60 percent of all money raised — was classified merely as “other expenses.” Official IRS forms do not list cigar or dry-cleaning expenses as a specific line item. The Clinton Foundation may well be saving lives, but it seems odd that the costs of so many life-saving activities would be classified by the organization itself as just random, miscellaneous expenses.

How much money goes to just jetting Hill and Bill around, paying for the dry cleaning, employing Chelsea, and basically letting the Clintons live off the money given to their foundation.

P.S.- The cost is 50 million.  That’s right 50,000,000! for flying the gang around.  And you know that’s light compared to the free rides they get from their rich buddies and private jets.

“How you doin’?” Have you seen my little friend? Want to?”

 

Sweet gig if you can get it!

Which is why the Obamas and Valerie want it.

The Clinton/Obama war starts. And Hillary will be exposed as who she is. No matter how hard they try.

The new book is out.  As Drudge puts it, “It begins.”

There are two parts here.

First, as we know, there is a civil war going on inside the Democrat party.  The MSM is trying to deflect away from it by talking about all the battles within the primary of the Republican party, but that is just healthy debate, reflecting a time long ago.

This, THIS is big time war. And not only over ideology- that is a good part of it in the trenches- but over who is going to run, and profit from, being the titular head of the party.

Up to now, “the Clintons” have been the brand name.  That has made them multi, MULTI millionaires.  It created the Clinton foundation, which is a huge money laundering scheme that would make any organized crime boss simply weep in jealousy!   Which is why Obama and his crew (Jarrett and the rest), all being from the “connected Chicago way” want to hijack the foundation concept so badly.  It is pure gold. Hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars worth of pure gold!

This is why the NYTimes and others are being allowed to write bad things about Hillary.  The “new order” is being put in place.

Estate planners have been seizing on the concept for the mega-rich for awhile.  The reasons are obvious.–

A Private Family Foundation (PFF) is a separate entity, privately funded by you. It is created with the specific purpose of contributing to various charitable causes.

As a distinct, legal entity, The Private Family Foundation:

1. Contributes to a charitable cause and takes a tax deduction, while relinquishing personal control over your gift.

2. Minimizes your estate tax liability.

3. Avoids capital gains tax on the sale of appreciated property contributed to the charity of your choice.

4. Provides continuing employment and activity for your family members.

5. Identifies and preserves your family name for years to come.

What the Clintons did was use it to not only protect wealth, but to CREATE wealth and influence- right in front of everyone, including their friends in the media.  Great plan.  If no one complains, the average Joe will never figure out how screwed they are, and if someone does complain, show them a couple of half complete foundation “projects” in a third world hellhole and call the critics racists!

Take Haiti for example.

The Clinton Foundation is facing protests due to its mismanagement of resources for the post-earthquake recovery efforts of Haiti.

Five years after a disastrous earthquake ripped through the small island nation, disturbing reports of a lack of progress in the country’s recovery have angered many Haitian Americans.

The country is still in ruin. Only 900 homes have been built in the last five years even though over $10 billion was donated from the international community to help rebuild Haiti.

The Clinton Foundation, which led fundraising efforts for the recovery, has been the focus of many protests.

One protester from Harlem said, “These people – they are still living in very difficult conditions, living in tents, while Bill Clinton and his cronies are wasting this money.”

NYTimes put out a good article from 2013 and the British Telegraph sums up the problem for critics in a few lines.

Is the New York Times being guest edited by Rush Limbaugh? Today it runs with a fascinating takedown of the Clinton Foundation – that vast vanity project that conservatives are wary of criticising for being seen to attack a body that tries to do good. But the liberal NYT has no such scruples. The killer quote is this:

For all of its successes, the Clinton Foundation had become a sprawling concern, supervised by a rotating board of old Clinton hands, vulnerable to distraction and threatened by conflicts of interest. It ran multimillion-dollar deficits for several years, despite vast amounts of money flowing in.

Over a year ago Bill Clinton met with some aides and lawyers to review the Foundation’s progress and concluded that it was a mess. Well, many political start-ups can be, especially when their sole selling point is the big name of their founder (the queues are short at the Dan Quayle Vice Presidential Learning Center). But what complicated this review – what made its findings more politically devastating – is that the Clinton Foundation has become about more than just Bill. Now both daughter Chelsea and wife, and likely presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton have taken on major roles and, in the words of the NYT “efforts to insulate the foundation from potential conflicts have highlighted just how difficult it can be to disentangle the Clintons’ charity work from Mr Clinton’s moneymaking ventures and Mrs Clinton’s political future.” Oh, they’re entangled alright.

The NYT runs the scoop in its usual balanced, inoffensive way – but the problem jumps right off the page. The Clintons have never been able to separate the impulses to help others and to help themselves, turning noble philanthropic ventures into glitzy, costly promos for some future campaign (can you remember a time in human history when a Clinton wasn’t running for office?). And their “Ain’t I Great?!” ethos attracts the rich and powerful with such naked abandon that it ends up compromising whatever moral crusade they happen to have endorsed that month. That the Clinton Global Initiative is alleged to have bought Natalie Portman a first-class ticket for her and her dog to attend an event in 2009 is the tip of the iceberg. More troubling is that businessmen have been able to expand the profile of their companies by working generously alongside the Clinton Foundation.

(Of course, the real investigation would cover how much money is contributed to the foundation and how much actually comes out the other end as projects.  I’m thinking the overheard is quite steep, being it flies Bill, and now Hill, all over the world, where they ask for more money.  Apparently, someone did try to look into the foundation’s books and came away confused.)

However, during the time  Bill Clinton was making money from foreign governments, Hillary Clinton was wheeling and dealing with those same governments as Sec of State.  That’s a whoops. If a Republicans were doing this, at the same level, the NYTimes would be leading with the scandal every day.  But it is the Clintons after all.

What is the big deal?  The new book is out now, just as Hillary runs, that explains in great detail apparently just this is a huge deal.

“Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich,” by Peter Schweizer — a 186-page investigation of donations made to the Clinton Foundation by foreign entities — is proving the most anticipated and feared book of a presidential cycle still in its infancy.

The book, a copy of which was obtained by The New York Times, asserts that foreign entities who made payments to the Clinton Foundation and to Mr. Clinton through high speaking fees received favors from Mrs. Clinton’s State Department in return.

“We will see a pattern of financial transactions involving the Clintons that occurred contemporaneous with favorable U.S. policy decisions benefiting those providing the funds,” Mr. Schweizer writes.

His examples include a free-trade agreement in Colombia that benefited a major foundation donor’s natural resource investments in the South American nation, development projects in the aftermath of the Haitian earthquake in 2010, and more than $1 million in payments to Mr. Clinton by a Canadian bank and major shareholder in the Keystone XL oil pipeline around the time the project was being debated in the State Department.

Does Obama care about the corruption undermining his State Department?  Of course not!  He’s pissed he’s not in on it!

Which brings me to the next part of this civil war.  Obama wants it.  He wants that cash cow. And Obama, being the spoiled man-child, who has been handed a good deal of what he wants over the years, expects someone is going to give it to him. And that is going to be a huge fight, because you know and I know Bill and Hill won’t give it up without one!

Which means sooner or later we are going to see this!

Obama and Bill. It won’t be hard! Obama is far more popular

Washington, Feb 8 : Adolescents watching professional wrestling on ...

And then there will be the gals!

So why is Hillary running?  Because Hillary is nuts.  Not that crazy tin foil wearing nuts, but that nuts that comes from being entitled so long and waiting for generations for HER chance, that she can’t stop the train without derailing it.  Think more a cunning, intelligent “Norma Desmond” from Carol Burnett, without the humor.

 

 

 

 

Gingrich's wife's eyes are just fuckin' weird:

You can see where I’m going with this..

Also, by running, she is going to guarantee that the money keeps rolling in.  For years we’ve heard the Clintons “can’t get enough money.”  I believe that.  A hundred million is not enough, they will want two hundred, then three, then a billion.  Now remember, they aren’t financial wizards or inventors of the PC, they are just a couple of talented hicks from Arkansas who know how to parlay with the financial wizards and billionaire inventors.  Not because they are brilliant, but because they have worked hard to be the only game in town for the political Left.

Until Obama came along.

Right now, Hillary is the slightly underqualified, entitled, spoiled woman without any real talents except to ability to take abuse from the men in her life. She’s not stupid, far from it, she is very intelligent, and cunning. You don’t get from here to there without both.

But intelligence is a poor substitute for the mental ability to see what is right and wrong, ethical, just or unjust,  and having the fortitude to sacrifice yourself to do the right thing.

I’ll take one good guy or gal with a good soul and ethics by my side rather than a hundred intellectuals who are more interested in their own self-promotion, as will most decent Americans.  Even Hillary knows this about herself, which is why she- and her handlers- are trying to control the image. The meeting in Iowa was fake for example. The eating at Chipotle was just a disaster.  Let’s be honest, when do you think was the last time Clinton, any Clinton, paid for a meal?

All handpicked democratic operatives. That were told what to say, and their devices were taken!

“And then I do what with this bag? Take it? But I have ‘people’ for that!”

 

Will it work?  Americans are pretty dull nowadays when it comes to politics, so maybe. What it will AVOID is having someone walk up and say,

“Mrs Clinton, remember when that career, BLACK, state department employee testified that he witnessed your “fixer” Cheryl Mills going through all the emails subpoenaed by Congress, picking out the ones that might be damaging to you?  He was lambasted and his career damaged.  Now we find out those emails were actually on a private server, and again you admit to going through them and removing the ones you think don’t apply.  How can  you square that with you being so “Transparent?”

raymond-maxwell

Raymond Maxwell

Or,

How can your foundation (which employs your daughter and husband) take money from countries and millionaires your State department is dealing with and usually finds itself suddenly agreeing with them!  How do you square that circle?

Hillary can’t and won’t be able to answer, because she is guilty.

She is literally Nixon ON STEROIDS before she is even elected!  Think through that for a second.  We went from a time in the seventies where a President got caught trying to cover up a cheap political burglary and was run from office, to a period in time where politicians openly steal, make corrupt deals, lie to everyone- with everyone knowing it- and they STILL get elected to office.

Folks, that is only forty years.

However, it is the forty years where anarchists from the sixties, those damned hippies, have been able to infiltrate and corrupt about every institution in America.  They are a hard working bunch.  Actually, like Hillary, they are an intelligent cunning bunch, who, while we worked hard trying to keep the nation afloat, crept in and took advantage of our good nature.

And now, they are running a woman (because she is a woman they say) for President, the ONLY candidate on their side, who is so lost, so corrupt, so damaged, that she may very well implode at some point.  Which is why the handlers are keeping her from the public. This is a coronation, not a campaign.  Allow the serfs to get to close and they may spy cracks in her makeup, catch a glimpse of  the bulging eyes of paranoia, and smell the whiff of insanity as she passes.

And all the time, Obama and his crew are doing their level best to upset that royal carriage and spill the royal queen onto the street, right on her ass in front of every one.

Like I said, this is going to be fun.

Democrats and their own version of the Civil War. Obamas vs the Clintons.

Isn’t it strange when Hillary did the roll out there seemed to be somewhat of a cooler reception?  There are two reasons for it in my opinion.

First, Hillary sucks.  There is no other way to put it.  She is a horrible, corrupt, manipulating, politically heartless person, who lost her soul and her way a long time ago.  She is, sadly, the end result of decades of trying to ride someone coattails, and making Faustian bargains with anyone in order to maintain power and control.  Don’t get me wrong, she’s smart.  She just sold whatever ethical core she had a long time ago and everyone who isn’t in on that same bargain knows it to be true.  You can see she’s not genuine anymore, long ago loosing her personality to the manufactured persona of “Hillary Clinton the master of all things.” Truth is she’s just a human like the rest of us, and frankly less talented than many.

For years in the nineties (jeez a long time ago) I followed the stories of the Clintons in the White House.  The lies, the coverups, the affairs.  Dealing with Bill (first coattails) had to be a full time job for Hillary.  Lately, some of the old rumors are being told again in a couple of books. The  Washington Times has one article on them.

Just as Hillary Rodham Clinton is preparing to launch her presidential campaign, a new behind-the-scenes book about life at the White House is providing a fresh look at her bitter fights with husband-President Bill Clinton over the Monica Lewinsky affair, including a bloody clash in the first couple’s bedroom.

“There was blood all over the president and first lady’s bed,” writes former White House reporter Kate Anderson Brower. “A member of the residence staff got a frantic call from the maid who found the mess. Someone needed to come quickly and inspect the damage. The blood was Bill Clinton‘s. The president had to get several stitches to his head.”

“The Residence: Inside the Private World of The White House,” is due out Tuesday from publisher Harper, but excerpts began making the rounds Monday. Ms. Brower is a former reporter for Bloomberg News.

Stories circulated after the 1998 fight in the White House that Mrs. Clinton had brained her husband with a lamp in a fury over the revelations of his sexual affair with Miss Lewinsky, a White House intern. But according to the book, White House staff surmised that Mrs. Clinton hit her husband with one of the dozens of books that she kept on her bedside table.

Mr. Clinton “insisted that he’d hurt himself running into the bathroom door in the middle of the night,” Ms. Brower writes. “But not everyone was convinced. ‘We’re pretty sure she clocked him with a book,’ one worker said. … The incident came shortly after the president’s affair with a White House intern became public knowledge … And there were at least twenty books on the bedside table … including the Bible.”

I believe this to be true.  Hillary’s temper and frustration with everybody is famed. Covered up by the MSM, but still famed.  You can Google some of the comments she’s made to the Secret Service, her staff, the world in general. This is not a happy woman. This is a conniving, manipulating woman dead set on running over anyone who gets in her way, except Bill- who will work to get her elected as he promised forty years ago.

Second, the Clintons have something the Obamas want (and you can include Valerie Jarrett in that want), and that is the Clinton Foundation’s money laundering scheme. Obama is new, Clintons are really, really old, and they have made their money. At least that is what Obama believes and he wants in on the deal, just like the “Chicago way” taught him!  The only way this happens if the Clintons fade. The only way they fade is if Hillary fails in her bid for the Presidency. Thus, the back channel undermining of Hillary by the Obama’s through the MSM,which is causing the civil war.

And that is the seed that started this Civil War between the Clintons and the Obamas.  If Bill were running I’d give the Clintons the advantage.  He’s loved by many, Obama not so much.  But Hillary is running and she pales to many, including Obama.  Frankly, she is just hard to listen to or look at.  It’s like she is a automaton ready at almost any time to start shaking and rattling from the stress with part flying off and her eye popping from her skull and whipping back and forth on a spring!

Here is the most famous photo of Hillary. The day she became angry that the deaths of for Americans under her command may derail her run for the Presidency.  Not a hint of remorse or responsibility or the ability to emotionally relate to the tragedy.  Nothing, just a calculated response and a rare glimpse into a person who has lost her soul.

hillary angry

“At this point, what difference does it make?”

Well a ton, if you are really interested in finding out what really happened and how far down that particular road did you travel. But then again, I’m not running for President, as though it was my birthright.

Twitchy does  a better job with the comments.’

Rumor has it Valerie Jarret has five or six investigations into Hillary’s activities during her State Department tenure.  If so, we’ll get more and more articles from Obama supporting lefties about her misdeeds.

Hillary should have seen this coming.  They are both from Chicago after all.

And did people with common sense think it would end any differently? No females made it through Marine IOC.

Social engineering within the military is like to liberals like shooting fish in a barrel. They hate he-men. They hate the military for teaching the f-ed up liberal educated kids that there are things like good guys and bad guys and duty and sacrifice and honor.  They hate it.

One of the ways the Left tries to undermine it is by changing the he-man elements within the military into something “softer” by forcing women into them.  I’m not saying women can’t do certain things as good or better than a man, but combat is not one of them.  First, as some people have pointed out, combat is ugly and why in the world do we want to expose our sisters, mothers, daughters to something ugly?  What does it gain us as a civilization to make them see what men from time to time in history have to see?

 The two-and-a-half year period in which the Marine Corps’ Infantry Officer Course became gender-integrated for research will end without a single female graduate.

The final iteration of IOC to accept female Marines on a volunteer basis began April 2 with two female participants. One was a volunteer and one was a member of the newly integrated ground intelligence track.

Both were dropped that same day during the grueling initial Combat Endurance Test, said Capt. Maureen Krebs, a spokeswoman for Headquarters Marine Corps. Nine of the 90 men who began the course were also cut.

IOC, held quarterly at Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia, began accepting female officers fresh out of training in September 2012 as part of a larger research effort into the feasibility of opening ground combat jobs to women. Lieutenants who made it through the legendarily tough 86-day course would not receive an infantry military occupational specialty or career advancement; they did it only for the challenge and the hope of being part of a historical Marine Corps achievement.

But as the research continued, few volunteers took advantage of the opportunity. By July 2014, only 20 female officers had attempted the course. Only one made it through the Combat Endurance Test, and none made it to the end.

There are other issues outside just ability that make it harder to deal with women.  Simple things like hygiene, bathroom issues, menstrual cycles and other women only problems that being in combat IN THE FIELD make difficult and maybe dangerous.  One story of combat talked about how men would be on patrol and one of them had to defecate. So he stopped, dropped his drawers and shit right there in line, in front of everyone.  The teller of the story pointed out that if he wanted privacy he had to trade his security to do it.  Wandering off to get behind a bush or  tree could get him killed or captured.  Same with urinating.  What do the guys do when the girls have to drop and squat?  We are talking men and women in their twenties and thirties. Why put them through that.  Not to mention the mental aspect of the training for and the execution of missions.

The Special Forces elements are against it.  They fear the standards will be lowered to accommodate the females, which will get good men and women killed.  They are right.  Imagine how the story of Marcus Lutrell’s team would have gone if some 125lb female would have been part of that unit.   They fought for a long time, ended up all getting wounded.  Had a female fallen, like one of their men had, they would have stood and fought to protect her, even more than they did their brothers.  At some point, the guys know they had to be left behind, and the guy leaving him knows he has to go.  That’s something men have trouble doing with women.  Ten thousand years of genetic imprinting prevents it.

Men fear their women being raped, tortured and killed by other men.  It is the way it is, and Diane Feinstein and her ilk can wish it away all they want, but it won’t change. Thank God for that!  It is what makes us civilized.  The concept of protecting our wives, daughters and sisters shouldn’t be mocked, it should be commended.

And this is not that they can’t fight.  Unlike the Kurds or the Israelis, we have the ability and resources to choose to keep our women out of the fight.  If they want to fly, drop bombs, do medical evacs and other things, that is about as close to the shooting as I want them to get.  And many I’m sure do a great job.  They don’t lack courage or commitment, but there is a huge difference between dropping a bomb at ten thousand feet or flying into a zone that is somewhat pacified to pick up injured, and sticking a knife in some jihadi’s chest or cutting his throat after sneaking up behind him.

Stop trying to say different.

Seriously how many people, not even mentioning women, can tote this up and down mountains or through jungles?

The boring “Old Media” and they tired attacks meet Rand Paul, and Paul wins. Good for the new talent pool of Republicans.

Rand Paul is a smart guy. His only failing is his father.  It really is that simple. The MSM will hang Ron around Rand’s neck like a stone weight.  However, it doesn’t change the fact that he and his competitors in the run for the Presidency are the far brightest, articulate and prepared group since I can remember.

And the democrats have….Hillary…and nothing after that.

So the media will bring out the old, tired saw of Abortion “rights” and when is a baby a baby, and the issue of entitlements, and the environment and will begin to beat on the Republicans over the same old, tired issues.

However, THIS time the guys and gals in the party are from a new age.  There are no more Romneys or McCains or Bob Doles.  The closest to that mess is Jeb Bush.  Who is not going to make it unless money does really talk in the end.  But the rest of the gang are bright, ready, smart, and can hand back to the old talking heads their standard crap, spun completely around on them.  Something Romney could not do.

For example, Rand Paul- a surgeon- is being attacked on his position on abortion.  He announces, the old media attacks with this silliness.  This time Rand bounces it on the head of two MSM types and they just do not know what to do.  Even Kurtz, a veteran in the arena, cannot quite get out of his own history.  People see reality from the comfort zone, which is their combined experiences.  When things change quickly most people cannot follow suit.

Obama knows this and used the new tech to change the way campaigns were waged.  Hillary is hiring a Google exec as a communications expert. (Wait for you Google queries to change!)

Here, in the venue of ideas we have a ton of talent, far better than Hillary or Jeb, that have new ideas and are very articulate.  The media is a mile wide but an inch deep, like thin ice. They will crack and modify if they are the ones subjected to the types of beatings Rand put on them this week.

You want something to change, then you need to be the one to change it. You find you gain respect and fans.

Harry Reid and the “exercise band” beating.

When he first told the story, I was doubtful.  Something happened to Reid, but it wasn’t an exercise accident.  That is unless he suffered the worst accident I’ve seen.  As time passes, more and more people are wondering if something else happened to Reid.  What I do know is he isn’t talking.  He’s from Vegas and shows all the markings of a man who didn’t pay up on a debt.

“Sources familiar with the incident said Reid was exercising in his bathroom, with the exercise band attached to the shower door,” Politico reported that same day.

Resistance bands, or “exercise bands” as “sources familiar with the incident” described them to Politico, or “rubber bands” as Reid referred to them, are inexpensive exercise devices that consist of a length of cord made of stretchable material, usually some form of rubber or latex, that sell for between $10 and $40.

From the moment the story broke, many have been highly skeptical of Reid’s claim his injuries came from a home exercise accident. Most of this skepticism–based mostly on speculation and the gruesome nature of the injuries—led some to offer a version of an alternate theory that somebody beat up Senator Reid.

“It’s pretty obvious from the photographs that somebody beat the bejesus out of the soon-to-be former senator from Nevada. And yet the national media has uncritically swallowed the cover story that ‘exercise equipment’ was to blame for the loss of sight in the former majority leader’s right eye. Baloney,” Michael Walsh wrote at PJ Media.

Breitbart takes the trouble to actually investigate the accident story.

A Breitbart News investigation of Reid’s home exercise accident has uncovered facts that appear to discredit Reid’s version of the home exercise accident for three very specific reasons:

1. The shower door in his master bathroom, as well as two of the other three sides of the shower itself, consists of a glass panel that extends from floor to ceiling and is not sturdy enough to be used as the anchor for an exercise band.

2. The distance from the shower door to the cabinets in the bathroom is at best a mere 3 feet, an insufficient width to conduct the type of resistance band exercises Reid says he was performing when one of the bands broke and he hit his head on the cabinet.

3. Even if Reid had attempted to conduct his exercises in this very narrow 3 feet passage, the force of the exercise would not have been sufficient to “spin him around” and crash him into the cabinets of the master bathroom, as he claims.

According to the Las Vegas Review Journal, Reid and his wife moved into their newly purchased “Cantata Model” home in the Anthem Country Club gated community of Henderson, Nevada, in the summer of 2014.

Breitbart News has confirmed through publicly available documents at the Clark County Assessor’s Office and publicly available documents from the real estate agent who handled the transaction that Senator Reid and his wife purchased a 3,571 square foot house built on the Cantata model floor plan in the Anthem Country Club gated community in Henderson, Nevada for $769,000 on July 11, 2014.

Breitbart News has obtained a copyrighted digital image of the Cantata model floor plan of the sort used to construct the house Senator Reid and his wife purchased in July, as well as copyrighted photographs taken of the house’s interior and exterior that were used as part of the sales promotion for that residence. Breitbart News has requested permission from the Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors (GLVAR), which has copyrighted the images, to display them in this story, but has not yet received a response. Given the importance of this story, Breitbart News has included these images in this article, as a matter of public interest.

A quick look at the layout over at BB and you can see his story sucks.  Now did he fall and hurt himself? Sure, but not the way he tells the story. Sometimes a small lie will cover up a bigger lie IF nobody asks questions. Common in police investigations.

So did he fall? Maybe, and maybe his fall is covered up by the “exercise accident.”  He could be sick and is hiding it.  He bruised awful easy.

Or he could have been told his time is past, argued the point, and was reminded he had no choice.

Either way, Reid is a liar, and his excuse for being beat up is not a rubber band breaking.

Ah, no on the band excuse deal. Who tuned you up?

Update:  It may have been a family matter.

On Monday I got a phone call from a man named Easton Elliott. We talked briefly on Monday, and have had additional telephone conversations since then. Elliott* is a businessman who lives in the Las Vegas area, and he thinks he knows what really happened to Harry Reid. This is the story as he related it to me:

Elliott spent a portion of last New Year’s Eve at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting in Henderson, Nevada. His AA group has meetings every hour on New Year’s Eve, along with a pot luck supper. There were approximately 20 people present at the meeting during the events described below.

Some time between 10:00 and 11:30 p.m., a man entered the meeting. His appearance was striking: there was blood on his clothing, beginning around his midsection. His left hand was swollen. He appeared to be somewhat intoxicated and was visibly agitated. He introduced himself as “Larry.”

In a group discussion that was heard by a number of people, Larry said that he had just had a fight with a family member. Larry said he had been at a family get-together, and he didn’t remember much about the fight because he had blacked out. When he came to, he was rolling on the ground, fighting with a family member, and his clothes were bloody. Now, he said, he was frightened that the Secret Service would come after him.

This last reference was not taken seriously by the group, although it was obvious that Larry had indeed been in a fight. Larry stayed for the rest of the meeting, and for a while afterward. There is a front room where coffee is served, and he remained there for a while. At some point during that time, he asked whether anyone could give him a ride to Searchlight.

Is this a coverup of a coverup? With Harry and now the Capital Police (remember, they’re the guys who shot up a confused black woman in a car- because she bumped a barricade in D.C.- and got a standing ovation from Congress ) are stuck. Did they know the truth and hide it at the behest of the senator?  If Harry says Larry did it, it is a federal offense at the worst and a felony at the least. So Larry could end up in prison for the rest of his life. Not to mention the front page stories.  I actually get why Harry would lie.  If this were his only lie, I’d look the other way, just as the Capital Police did.

But after his stellar career in screwing people WITH the lie, I’m thinking it’s Karma time.

American Thinker does a great summation.

Why Apple products do not occupy my home and the battlefield of gay “rights.”

In Indiana they passed a law saying in effect their are protections for religious liberty in the railings against them by the “gay mafia.”  Jonah Goldberg puts it best.  “After achieving, essentially, total victory, going across the battlefield shooting the wounded.”

He’s right.  This is a total war AND A WARNING about how you cannot deal honestly with the Left.  They will not tolerate any behavior or beliefs outside their ideology.  We’ve seen this before, we’ll see it again.  Strident ideologues always end up killing or maiming or harming someone “in the name of the cause.”

Why pick on America when there is so much bad happening to gays across the globe? The easy answer is we are low hanging fruit. It is easy to force us to change and cower. Not so much for nations like Saudi Arabia or Iran.  What drives me crazy though is people and companies like Tim Cook at Apple don’t even try!  In fact, they will do business with nations that abuse gays religiously (no pun intended!).

But back to Cook, who offers this clarion call.

Our message, to people around the country and around the world, is this: Apple is open. Open to everyone, regardless of where they come from, what they look like, how they worship or who they love. Regardless of what the law might allow in Indiana or Arkansas, we will never tolerate discrimination.

Super. Now we know that Cook’s ignorance applies, not just to state and federal laws in the U.S., but to laws in the other countries where Apple does business. As Allahpundit pointed out on Twitter:

Four of the 10 countries that punish homosexuality with death appear on this Apple page http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/worldviews/wp/2014/02/24/here-are-the-10-countries-where-homosexuality-may-be-punished-by-death/  https://www.apple.com/choose-your-country/ 

October 2014: Apple in talks to sell iPhone in Iran http://www.wsj.com/articles/apple-in-talks-to-sell-iphone-in-iran-1414604199 

December 2014: Saudi retailer announces opening of first Apple stores http://www.arabianbusiness.com/saudi-retailer-announces-opening-of-first-apple-stores-575777.html 

So Tim…what up wit’ that?

So until I see Apple pull their product from nations who BEHEAD gays and hang them in public, I’m going to continue my self imposed Apple boycott.

And you should too.

No more PC.

A five second lesson on spoiled doper kids and racism. The Taraji P. Henson story.

I like the actress and her portrayal of a NYPD detective in Person of Interest. However, that is done.  What a person plays and what a person is can be revealed when put under stress.  In her case, she’s just another race offense hunting fool.  Her son, a kid with some obvious problems, was pulled over by the police.  Instead of getting popped for the weed, amphetamines and paraphernalia, he got cut loose, after almost running over a pedestrian to boot.

AND SHE SEES RACISM because the cop was white! Nothing else matters. Nothing rings that bell, like her son is a doper and a liar.  (You can be sure what he told her and what happened were two different stories.)  In this case, thank goodness for the dashcam. Too bad you can’t sue people who run their mouths and lie about the cops.  Would certainly clear up some cheap shots like this one.

Earlier last week she claimed in a media interview with Uptown Magazine her son was racially profiled by police and abused.

Ms. Henson stated her son was not safe at any college that was not black and she would be sending him to Howard University because it wasn’t safe for a young black man around non-black college campus police officers.

…..“My child has been racially profiled. He was in Glendale, California and did exactly everything the cops told him to do, including letting them illegally search his car. It was bogus because they didn’t give him the ticket for what he was pulled over for.” […] “I’m not paying $50K so I can’t sleep at night wondering is this the night my son is getting racially profiled on campus.”  (link)

However, it appears Ms. Henson and her son are just another couple of race baiting liars.  BIG LIARS.   Thankfully the police had dash camera footage:

You just gotta watch this footage, because her son was pulled over by the nicest darned police officer I’ve ever witnessed on tape.  This cop is EXACTLY the 180° opposite of what she and her son are claiming.

Years ago, my partner and I stopped a black car with a tag hanging loose off the back bumper. The driver and passenger were black.  We couldn’t tell that because it was night and the windows were tinted.  When I approached the passenger he said, “Well I guess you got your quota tonight.”  I knew what he meant.  I had him get out and walk back and pointed to the tag.  I told him this is why we stopped him, not because he was black.

This was years before the BGI industry cranked up with Obama, but it shows just how many times it is assumed by the blacks that police are after them.  The truth is, because of their subculture of criminal and thug problems they simply will not address, there is some validity to that. We aren’t “after them” as a race.  We are after that element of within their culture and within all other cultures- the criminals- who prey on society.  In the black culture they are just more of a problem per capita.

And sometimes the idiot kids dress  and act like the criminals.  I rest my case.

This is how he is. Just another young black dope smoking, pill popping dumbass.

Sobriety test: Marcel Henson, 20, told the officer he had smoked marijuana two hours before driving, and the officer asks him to get out of the car to see if he is under the influence, but determines he isn't

This is how she sees him and presents him to us.

However in this case, Ms. Henson needs to address another issue. That her son is a doper.  If she were to pay attention to it, rather than blindly defend his lying ass, he might survive. She should remember the names of the kids of Hollywood stars who die from drug abuse.  There are far too many, and most were because the parents indulged them.

If he were my kid, he’d be driving the public bus for a year.   He wants to smoke dope and ride, then that’s his decision. HOW he rides is mine.

Quick note on the Clintons. Nothing new to see here.

I followed the Clintons since 1992.  I was a great fan of the American Spectator.  It covered Whitewater, the Rose law firm records, Vince Foster in great detail.  The simple takeaway from that period, as well as Clinton’s two terms, is this.  Bill Clinton likes money and power and being loved by people.  He has no moral center, but his intent is never really evil.  He is that buddy who is a used car salesman who only wants to be loved and have fun.  You would hang out with him, but you would never let him date your sister!

Hillary is bad.  She wants it all and will do whatever she feels she wants to do and can get away with (by hiding behind the popular husband) that will allow her to reach her goals.  The Rose law firm billing records hid in her bedroom for years is an example (and a prelude to her current email scandal.)

She is truly a Alinsky acolyte, who decided to corrupt from within. But not for the goal of destroying America but to gain power OVER America.  Think Obama, without the charm.  Hillary has always been strident in her beliefs and has that personality which demands adherence to her way. I met a family who knew the Clintons just after they were elected.  The family was from Arkansas. In a conversation with them, they said this “You have no idea what you have done!”  They said Hillary ran the government while Bill just kinda hung out making friends.  That has never really changed.

So, to the issue of her emails/hiding data from the government and from the people.  Of course she did!  It is her way! Her team also realizes that asking forgiveness is far more effective if you are a Clinton than asking permission.

However, things are different now.  Hillary and Bill have a new enemy- Obama and Jarrett.  And frankly, I think Jarrett is better than the Clinton “cleaner” Cheryl Mills.  Old school vs new age.  It is Jarrett that released the email scandal.  Obama claims that his administration is the most transparent, which is a lie.  He hates the idea that Hillary brings up his bad acts, so he’s pissed.  As a It is rumored that Jarrett has prompted six investigations into Hillary.  That would be unbelievable if it were not for the fact that Jarrett fears Hillary would undermine Obama’s legacy and her agenda for Iran.  Which she would.

Obama adviser behind leak of Hillary Clinton’s email scandal

New vs old.

 

So, Jarrett is wanting another far left progressive to take over Obama’s mission.  Think for a minute that there is a farther left candidate out there than Hillary.  Yikes!   They want a weak leader that will influenced by Jarrett and Obama after they leave office.  Also, don’t forget, Jarrett is Iranian (Shia) and Hillary’s chief of staff is Muslim Brotherhood (Sunni).  I know, who would have thought that would even be part of any American political equation!!

Point is, Republicans need only to pop popcorn, get a cold drink and sit down while this works out.  Throw in a few subpoenas and watch the new age, left wing cat fight.

Booom! Done!

Ferguson, DOJ and the outcome of reverse racism.

In a nutshell.  Holder is a racist. Obama is a racist.  Michelle is a racist.  It just is.  They hate the way America is handling with they consider a racist problem- black crime.  The problem they have is America is trying to hold blacks accountable for their crimes and failures, just like it does everybody else.  However, those three represent a group of blacks who do not want to address the real issues within the black community and instead want to make the rest of the nation bend to the failures of that certain element of the black community.  Sadly, the end result will be the good people within the black community will suffer the most.

Right now, Obama and Holder want to nationalize the way the police handle black criminals and miscreants.  They want us to be more sensitive to the bad behavior of blacks in general and look the other way when they commit crimes everybody should be arrested for.  That my friends is racism in its purest form. If an Asian kid does what Trayvon Martin did, nobody blinks.  Worse, if an Asian kid does what Martin did PRIOR to his death- committing a burglary and being found in possession of stolen property- the Asian kid would be arrested and prosecuted.  But as the American Thinker reminds us, that did not happen to Martin as he was caught up in the effort by the Miami police chief to play with the statistics and not the reality of black crime in the schools.

As evidence of those outcomes, the report cites information in the DOJ’s Orwellian 2014 “Dear Colleague Letter.” This letter was a follow up to a July 2012 executive order warning school districts to avoid “methods that result in disparate use of disciplinary tools.” The White House headlined the press release announcing this dubious stroke of reverse racism, “President Obama Signs New Initiative to Improve Educational Outcomes for African Americans.”

One model school district in the eyes of the DOJ was the Miami-Dade County Public Schools, one of the few districts with its own police department. The late Trayvon Martin had the seeming good fortune of pursuing his education therein.

Appearances deceive. The Miami-Dade Schools Police Department (M-DSPD) had problems unique to its peculiar mission. The exposure of the department’s practices began inadvertently with the Miami Herald story on Martin’s multiple suspensions. The article prompted M-DSPD Chief Charles Hurley to launch a major Internal Affairs (IA) investigation into the possible leak of this information to the Herald.

As the investigation began, the officers realized immediately that they had a problem on their hands. “Oh, God, oh, my God, oh, God,” one major reportedly said when first looking at Martin’s data.

He could see that Martin had been suspended twice already that school year for offenses that should have gotten him arrested. In each case, however, the case file on Martin was fudged to make the crime less serious than it was.

To their credit, the officers, when questioned, told the truth about Martin and about the policies that kept him out of the justice system. From their statements, made under oath, it appears that Hurley instructed his officers to divert offending juveniles away from the criminal justice system and back to their respective schools for discipline.

Hurley did this subtly. As one detective told IA, the arrest statistics coming out of Martin’s school, Dr. Michael M. Krop Senior High School, had been “quite high,” and the detectives “needed to find some way to lower the stats.” This directive allegedly came from Hurley.

At least a few officers confirmed that Hurley was particularly concerned with the arrest rates of black males. In a letter obtained by NBC 6 of South Florida, a senior detective wrote, “[Hurley] asked that I reduce the number of arrests I affect of all black juveniles. I told him regardless of the race of an individual; if probable cause existed for an arrest that individual would be arrested. He was not happy with my response to his request.”

“Chief Hurley, for the past year, has been telling his command staff to lower the arrest rates,” volunteered another high-ranking detective. When asked by IA whether the M-DSPD was avoiding making arrests, that detective replied, “What Chief Hurley said on the record is that he commends the officer for using his discretion. What Chief Hurley really meant is that he’s commended the officer for falsifying a police report.”

The IA interrogators seemed stunned by what they were hearing. They asked one female detective incredulously if she were actually ordered to “falsify reports.” She answered, “Pretty much, yes.”

This is Obama’s world.  Do not address the root reasons why blacks offend at a greater level than any other culture in America, but instead cover it up.  Why is beyond me, because we can simply go to Youtube and watch example after example of self-posted videos of blacks attacking and robbing randomly.  Unlike Obama and Holder, it appears they are proud of their criminal efforts and have no problem sharing with the rest of America and the world. (The second video links to Worldstar, which holds a ton of these types of videos.)

Now remember, Martin was given outs over and over from both his Hip-Hop dad and mom, and the police and the schools.  These three elements make up pretty much all of his world. Throw in friends and music and movies and he is convinced that being a bad ass is the way to go.  Not to study, or be responsible, or do the right thing.  Nope, be a thug because that is where the fun is!  Until you run into an armed citizen and get whacked.

Because of Obama and the fact it was a presidential election cycle, Zimmerman (who is now completely off the rails due to the damage caused by Florida and the DOJ) was villified and destroyed- for votes.

Darren Wilson and Ferguson was done for the same reason- the 2014 midterm.  I know that, you know that, they know that.  Now, the DOJ after all that work and effort is stuck with Ferguson and a good shoot by a good cop over a bad guy acting bad- ala Trayvon. So what to do?  Keep the blame going and drive Ferguson, and other agencies, into a federal way, a HOLDER/OBAMA APPROVED WAY, of dealing with blacks and their crimes.

After releasing a report that completely exonerated Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson of any wrongdoing in the death of an 18-year-old strong arm robbery suspect, Attorney General Eric Holder claimed that he was still “prepared” to dismantle the department, because racism was to blame for high rates of black violence and criminality.

Speaking to the press at Andrews Air Force Base on Friday, Holder claimed that he was “shocked” at what his investigators found in a review of the Ferguson, Missouri police department.

Holder said that Ferguson was “a community where this harm frequently appears to stem, at least in part, from racial bias — both implicit and explicit.”

He went on to vow that the federal government would fix the problem of racial disparities in violent crime in Missouri.

“We are prepared to use all the powers that we have to ensure that the situation changes there. That means everything from working with them to coming up with an entirely new structure,” Holder said. He went on to say that having the federal government rip apart and dismantle the department was also an option. “If that’s what’s necessary, we’re prepared to do that,” he said.

“The notion that you would use a law enforcement agency or law enforcement generally to generate revenue, and then the callous way in which that was done and the impact that it had on the lives of the ordinary citizens of that municipality, was just appalling. Appalling. And that is not something that we’re going to tolerate,” Holder continued.

Now Holder is right in one area, and using that to conflate into another.  Should police departments be expected to “tax” citizens with fines and tickets in order to fund cities? Man, is that an argument for another time! But, ask yourself this- Holder and Obama work for a government, and USE that government to fine and tax people, frivolously, in order to gain revenue.  But if Ferguson does it- that’s bad.   I know, Obama and Holder being hypocrites, who saw that coming!

But should police departments be looked at as revenue sourcing?  And how does that translate into offending blacks?  I will say this.  The best way to avoid offending blacks, many who cannot pay fines and end up on silly warrant lists, is to limit policing to what it was intended to be- keeping the peace.   That way everybody of all colors is happy.

But instead of addressing the big issue- that governments at all levels expect their law enforcement arm to partially fund itself by “enforcing laws”- Obama wants to put up blacks as victims and make them the poster children, and that is a mistake.

Why? Because if the DOJ manages to make it a rule that everybody is held accountable for crime EXCEPT for the black people, more black people will act out, and the usual victims of that acting out are…BLACK PEOPLE!

So what’s the point here? In Ferguson it is about the money for some.  Brown’s family attorney, Crump, will use this report to sue Ferguson.  Wilson’s life is over.  He didn’t do anything wrong but respond to a report of a crime and survive getting beaten by two black criminals.  That was his job!  Holder wants to make sure the police can’t do that job anymore!

In the end, it won’t matter. Because of Holder’s “FTP” effort, black across America are more willing to fight the police.  And because of that, more blacks and more police are going to get killed. Sadly, when black policeman is killed by two black robbers, there are no protests of blacks claiming “black lives matter”.

A police officer who went to a video game store to buy a present for his son ended up in a fierce gun battle with two would-be robbers, fighting to the end of his life to protect patrons and employees, a police captain said Friday.

Officer Robert Wilson III, 30, was at the counter of the GameStop store late Thursday afternoon when two brothers armed with semi-automatic weapons entered, the officer turned, and “the gunfight was on,” police homicide Capt. James Clark said.

“The officer was a hero and a warrior,” Clark said. “He fought to the very, very end, firing at both of them. Unfortunately, he lost his life.”

The brothers were identified Friday as Ramone Williams, 24, and Carlton Hipps, 29. Both had prior arrests, and police said Hipps had gotten out of prison in 2009. Both were charged with murder, attempted murder, robbery and related offenses.

Williams was in jail, and Hipps was hospitalized Friday and wearing Wilson’s handcuffs, authorities said. It was unclear if either man had an attorney who could comment on the charges.

Clark said Williams gave a statement to police, saying he and his brother did not see Wilson’s cruiser outside the store and did not know an officer was inside.

The men hid behind signs in the store as Wilson exchanged volleys with them. Clark credited the officer with saving lives by stepping away from other people in the store. He kept firing even after he was hit and “redefined what hero is all about,” Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey said.

This guy died trying to protect society and the people inside that store.  This guy is a hero.

These guys are dumbasses.

And because of those two, the officer is dead.  And truthfully, so is the kid in Madison who attacked the police, rather than go to jail quietly.  Of course, the media wants to say white cop killed unarmed black kid, but the truth is far more enlightening.

Tony Robinson was a 19-year-old street thug (Dindu Nuffin’ clan) who was previously involved in an armed robbery (April 2014) and pled guilty in October 2014 (case details).

Robinson pleaded guilty to armed robbery in October [2014] and was sentenced to six months in jail but a judge stayed the execution of the custodial term. He began serving a three-year probation period in December (link)

Ironically if the judge had carried out the sentencing term, Tony Robinson would be alive today.  Ultimately he was sentenced to three years probation, and can be seen in this picture above wearing his ankle monitor.  Robinson’s Twitter Account is HERE

At the age of 17 Robinson became a father and was sued for child support in 2014.   As a member of the Dindu Nuffins’ his family is customarily well versed in making excuses for his behavior and claiming the angelic felon was planning on attending college.

In addition more background on events are now surfacing including this witness statement from the neighborhood:

…This so called “gentle giant” was high on suspected hallucinagenics, and in a violent, volitile rage, walking down the streets of madison battering citizens, whom were frantically calling 911 for police assistance.

This out of control, violent man, high on acid hallucinagenic drugs, which not only gave him super human strength but made him impervious to pain, than battered a peace officer. Yes a peace officer who’s job that night was to protect the citizens screaming for help, and to protect the community from further harm from this man.

Again a man who made the choice to consume quantities of drugs, that made him a mad man, who was on a mission to critically harm others in his path”…. (link)

Sometimes it is just a street thug that gets killed, not a black kid or a white kid or an Asian kid or a Hispanic kid.  It is a thug, and thugs are colorblind.

Remember, the police were CALLED to the scene by his friends.  He was on drugs and attacking people.  Stopping that behavior IS THE JOB of the police and they cannot turn away, nor are they obligated to be hurt or killed by the suspect just because the suspect is one of Holder’s protected class. You can hear the audio of the call. His friends called on him, during which two more calls of assaults came in on the same suspect. The officer responded and within a few seconds was calling shots fired, which means he was jumped immediately.

So what does Holder want us to excuse? Gang affiliations?

Tony robinson 4 ankle monitor

Drug use?

Random acts of violence? Like this video?

Or this

Or this?

Attacking the police officer who was trying to stop him?

What exactly does Obama and Holder want from the rest of America?  Because if they think allowing random violent drug fueled crimes is a good idea, then they are bigger dumbasses than even I thought.
