And federal judges don’t see the problem, or see and don’t care, is worse.
State regulators crack down on free political speech.
Call President Barack Obama a communist in Nebraska and you could pay a hefty price.
Just ask Robert Bennie Jr., a successful financial adviser and former leader of the tea party in the state capital of Lincoln.
Bennie and the employer that eventually fired him were hounded and harassed by the Nebraska Department of Banking and Finance for months, in large part due to Bennie’s political views, according to his attorneys.
And while a U.S. appeals court agreed with a lower court that the regulators “targeted Bennie partly in retaliation for his constitutionally protected political speech,” the agency’s harassing activities did not rise to a First Amendment violation — to “deter someone of ordinary firmness from continuing to speak.”
“Our First Amendment rights can be cancelled out if government can punish people for exercising those rights,” said PLF attorney Wen Fa. “That is what happened to Bob Bennie — he was the victim of a vendetta campaign by bureaucrats because they were offended by his political views.”
‘Hang him high’
In 2010, Bennie was working for Boston-based LPL Financial, which bills itself as “the nation’s leading independent broker-dealer.”
Court records show things got bad for Bennie not long after he was quoted in a Feb. 1, 2010, Lincoln Journal Starstory about his political views and his leadership in the tea party.
The problem, apparently: Bennie called Obama a “communist” and said the president is “dishonest,” an “evil man.”
He said much more, much of which has been said by many, many other Americans concerned about the growth of government.
“The ultra-liberals are taking us from a freedom-loving capitalist economy to a socialist/communist country. Socialism is just a nice word for communism,” he told the newspaper. “In the 1700s, the citizens of this country finally had enough of oppressive government and they threw tea bags into Boston Harbor. What we have now is another freedom revolution. People versus the government.”
The Nebraska government, at least the folks at the Department of Banking and Finance, didn’t care for that kind of talk. And they were going to do something about it.
In late 2009, Rodney Griess, compliance supervisor at the time, took aim at a promotional CD Bennie had sent to clients. There was nothing illegal about the CD. Bennie actually had sent it out several years before under different disclosure rules, “but no one in the department knew that,” according to court documents.
Griess forwarded what he believed to be a disclosure violation to Jack Herstein, an assistant director of the department. Herstein responded, “Bob [Bennie] always is seen wearing a cowboy hat lately, so I say ‘Hang Him High.’”
Now to me the problem is not only do the bureaucrats still have a job, that should have been taken immediately. (You want to clean this up, make them pay- literally- out of their own wallets.) But the judges saw harm, just not a big enough harm! What the hell does that mean??!
In the same issue, Ben Stein puts it another way by telling a story about an idiot 29yr old male. We are losing America.
Lunch with my pal, T., a man my age from South Carolina. He was with his son, a young man of 29, whose occupation is extremely unclear. I picked them up at the Beverly Hills Hotel after my 12 Step meeting. The son was obviously in some kind of funk and said barely a word as he slid into my ancient Cadillac. I had suggested La Scala, a formerly superb Italian restaurant in Beverly Hills. It has some outdoor seating and the day was fine, so it seemed like a good choice.
I parked my jalopy in a huge underground lot and we went to the sidewalk and walked towards the restaurant. As we three sidled along, a simply beautiful woman in a short skirt and a T shirt walked by on the other side of the street.
“That is a gorgeous girl,” said my friend, the 71-year-old retiree as he looked appreciatively at the woman, some fifty feet away, or so.
The son looked at his father in alarm, almost in shock. “Shhhh!,” he commanded. “You can’t talk like that. You can get us all in trouble.”
“What are you talking about?” I asked him. I was laughing, on the assumption that he was leading into some kind of joke.
“You can’t talk about women’s looks,” the son said sharply. “Haven’t you seen what happened to Trump? Besides, what are you going to do next? Use the n-word?”
The father looked as if he had been forced to put up with this nonsense for years but was still upset about it.
“Look,” I pointed out to the young man. “We’re the only people on this side of the block. There’s not one person on our side of the street. Not a single one. No one heard your father.”
“I heard him,” said the son.
“Is this some kind of gag?” I asked him. “Is it illegal now to say a woman is beautiful? And in what possible way is it like calling someone a degrading racial slur? What is the possible point of similarity?”
“There could be someone with a security camera you don’t see,” the son muttered.
“So f–king what?” I demanded. “What’s wrong with calling a woman beautiful? When did that become shameful?”
“It’s beauty discrimination,” he insisted with the earnestness of idiotic youth.
This was one of the hanging curves Trump missed in the debate. Hillary complained guns killed 33,000 people- some toddlers (not that she phrased it that way). So guns have to be regulated. But ANY abortion, even a partial birth abortion of a healthy child is a right and should be allowed to happened unfettered by any regulations. (Something Trump did not challenge, beyond the greater “how bad it was pulling out babies and killing them” line. He is really that unskilled..)
I would have said, “Let me get this straight. You support doctors pulling a healthy baby out of the mother’s womb,even on the last day of pregnancy and having that doctor shove scissors in that child’s skull to kill it and suck out it’s brains? Without any restrictions in order to protect Roe v Wade? Do you know how many abortions have been performed on American unborn children since this started? Fifty-four million! And you worry about 33,000 people being killed by guns? Hillary it seems you are far more dangerous to any toddler or potential toddler than any gun ever invented!”
Hey, it’s nobody’s fault but their own! Trump is a movement. One they created. Not a necessarily focused one, or a good one, depending on what perspective you take. But a damaging one? Absolutely. He is the Tea Party’s next step toward total revolt. HRC getting in then driving us nuts with her authoritarian manner will be step three. Some people on the Left get it. They are bigoted and biased in their view, but they get it.
How many languages can he translate “Screw you!” into?
First of all there is a rumor Trump will mimic Beck and create his own TV network. Good…for…him! What is the upside? He will ravage those he thinks are doing the wrong thing. The bad side? It will harm Republicans (and through that conservatives) far more than democrats (where all the really bad guys live).
Time thinks it is the end of the world.
Donald Trump will probably lose this election, which is good news. Here’s the bad news: that loss may be just the beginning of Trump’s toxic presence in American political life. Nightmare scenarios are floating through Republican circles. The best cases posit a bitter and continuing Republican civil war between the Trump and “Establishment” factions of the party. The worst cases involve a clean break, a new right-wing populist party, anchored by a Trump-Breitbart-Ailes media empire. The mud generated by this new faction, fed by WikiLeaks and the Russians, could splash across the political spectrum, creating a perpetual fever swamp of conspiracy theories and calls for special prosecutors, crippling a Hillary Clinton presidency. Goth politics may be the new normal.
Well, Ed, screw you and everybody who didn’t tamp down OWS, or the WTO anarchists, or the cop killing BLMs or the “it’s just normal politics” reaction to Hillary trading American power for cash. SCREW YOU!!
This is the natural outcome of the elitist madness pushed down on free willed and free thinking Americans. We aren’t frigging French, moron, A hundred years ago we settled disagreements with a street showdown and six shooters! (In Chicago they still do, but use Glocks.)
So pushing on Americans and trying to take away their natural rights to be replaced by Hillary/Obama led government giveaway of manufactured rights isn’t going down well! You f*#*@* inside the beltway idiot! And wait until HRC, if she wins, starts yapping about taking guns away to save toddlers.
Nobody believes her, nobody trusts her. Hell, if she says something three things will come to the minds of eighty percent of the nation; 1. She’s lying. 2. She’s screwing somebody- probably us. 3. She’s making money doing it.
And that’s going INTO office!! Seriously, as Trump says why is she allowed to run?
That is the gift Wikileaks and Donald Trump have given Americans. The whole election is a sham and now everybody knows it. The question is will people be willing to take the red pill or the blue pill? (Love the Matrix reference, but now we know it is true.)The media is lying, your leaders are lying, your Hollywood heroes are lying. Your own people are lying. Heck the FBI/DIA/NSA/CIA/et al. have been compromised and are lying. They say the Russians hacked Podesta’s emails. I say I’ll take that with a grain of salt. I mean, is the FBI/DOJ competent to talk about hacked emails and who did it after the HRC server scandal?
That said, here’s the second problem. Not all Republicans are bad guys and not all Republicans can survive if they were to follow the Trump mantra. Some are in purple states or even blue states and this war is all about numbers. We need to keep the Congress in order to have ANY influence, especially conservative influence. Trump can only affect the Republican ticket right now. He can, and probably will, end up a king maker in that party. Which is not a bad thing, but only if he learns that his way isn’t the ONLY way. I am not sure he can.
People like McConnell are dying off. Literally if you take a look at him. He reminds me of Ned Beatty’s character in the movie “Shooter”. Arrogant, dismissive in a slimy way, he just oozes the corruption anyone gets when they are in D.C. too long.
This is really a good scene because it describes exactly their mindset. They get rich bringing “stability” to a region by killing innocent people to save, in their minds, a larger group of innocent people. But again, at a profit. Think about that for a second. Imagine that applied to a city in America. We allow the police to go in and burn down an entire block that contains gang members in order to save the people INSIDE that block and the surrounding blocks from the violence caused by those same gang members. Would we stand still for that? Sadly, if the situation was formed in a certain way by a compromised media, the answer is probably yes.
I read an article written by a friend of a freshman congressmen. It told of an encounter with Lindsey Graham at lunch in the Capital. The author was eating with his friend, the new congressman, and talking about change. Graham walks up and says basically yes we are for change, but not until we make him rich first!
Saying that out loud in front of witnesses shows the arrogance the D.C. insiders have. They no longer care because they are confident the federal bureaucracy will protect them. In that, they are right as the latest FBI releases show senior career State department official, Patrick Kennedy, trying to cover for himself, and through that, HRC in the email/server fiasco- by attempting to bribe the FBI. The fact the FBI agents felt it proper to disclose this shows more than a few agents inside that particular cesspool are still trying to fight the good fight. But Kennedy will go to work tomorrow, still employed, still getting a great benefit package when he retires, so why should he care if he’s caught?
Now if Trump actually wins…
Over at Claremont Institute, they offer a rather bleak outlook about conservatism that strikes to the heart of the problem. The bottom line? Things are changing and it may not matter if we go out kicking and screaming about freedom and the Constitution, we are still going out. It is long and it is depressing. But it does point out the war was largely lost because we ALLOWED bad people with bad ideas inside government, media and education. All created people now living inside our nation (immigrants and poorly educated citizens) who do no realize they are being abused.
2016 is the Flight 93 election: charge the cockpit or you die. You may die anyway. You—or the leader of your party—may make it into the cockpit and not know how to fly or land the plane. There are no guarantees.
Except one: if you don’t try, death is certain. To compound the metaphor: a Hillary Clinton presidency is Russian Roulette with a semi-auto. With Trump, at least you can spin the cylinder and take your chances.
To ordinary conservative ears, this sounds histrionic. The stakes can’t be that high because they are never that high—except perhaps in the pages of Gibbon. Conservative intellectuals will insist that there has been no “end of history” and that all human outcomes are still possible. They will even—as Charles Kesler does—admit that America is in “crisis.” But how great is the crisis? Can things really be so bad if eight years of Obama can be followed by eight more of Hillary, and yet Constitutionalist conservatives can still reasonably hope for a restoration of our cherished ideals? Cruz in 2024!
Not to pick (too much) on Kesler, who is less unwarrantedly optimistic than most conservatives. And who, at least, poses the right question: Trump or Hillary? Though his answer—“even if [Trump] had chosen his policies at random, they would be sounder than Hillary’s”—is unwarrantedly ungenerous. The truth is that Trump articulated, if incompletely and inconsistently, the right stances on the right issues—immigration, trade, and war—right from the beginning.
But let us back up. One of the paradoxes—there are so many—of conservative thought over the last decade at least is the unwillingness even to entertain the possibility that America and the West are on a trajectory toward something very bad. On the one hand, conservatives routinely present a litany of ills plaguing the body politic. Illegitimacy. Crime. Massive, expensive, intrusive, out-of-control government. Politically correct McCarthyism. Ever-higher taxes and ever-deteriorating services and infrastructure. Inability to win wars against tribal, sub-Third-World foes. A disastrously awful educational system that churns out kids who don’t know anything and, at the primary and secondary levels, can’t (or won’t) discipline disruptive punks, and at the higher levels saddles students with six figure debts for the privilege. And so on and drearily on. Like that portion of the mass where the priest asks for your private intentions, fill in any dismal fact about American decline that you want and I’ll stipulate it.
Conservatives spend at least several hundred million dollars a year on think-tanks, magazines, conferences, fellowships, and such, complaining about this, that, the other, and everything. And yet these same conservatives are, at root, keepers of the status quo. Oh, sure, they want some things to change. They want their pet ideas adopted—tax deductions for having more babies and the like. Many of them are even good ideas. But are any of them truly fundamental? Do they get to the heart of our problems?
If conservatives are right about the importance of virtue, morality, religious faith, stability, character and so on in the individual; if they are right about sexual morality or what came to be termed “family values”; if they are right about the importance of education to inculcate good character and to teach the fundamentals that have defined knowledge in the West for millennia; if they are right about societal norms and public order; if they are right about the centrality of initiative, enterprise, industry, and thrift to a sound economy and a healthy society; if they are right about the soul-sapping effects of paternalistic Big Government and its cannibalization of civil society and religious institutions; if they are right about the necessity of a strong defense and prudent statesmanship in the international sphere—if they are right about the importance of all this to national health and even survival, then they must believe—mustn’t they?—that we are headed off a cliff.
And we are.
Once the money starts to run out people are going to lose their collective shit! You think things were dicey in Ferguson in 2014, you have no clue how bad things can get if the money quits flowing. And not just to lower income people, but to average Joes of all stripes and character. Old people, young people, white people, black or Hispanic people, gay or straight, the lines will be drawn between those who have something or create something and those others who live to take it from them. The billionaire Soros is a taker. The guy who repairs engines and fixes brakes so you can keep your car on the road is a maker. The nurse who keeps you alive in the hospital is a maker. The politicians who tax her almost to death and force her to buy outrageously expensive health insurance are takers. For that matter ALL politicians and their supporting bureaucrats are takers.
Hillary Clinton is the human manifestation of that unquenchable greed. People over the years commented on just how money and power hungry she is. There is never enough. The Moroccan bribe of twelve million is a perfect example. And even with that straight up example of her greed, the Left still wants to excuse it, because they “want theirs” too. Watch the FOX news video, one of the few places you’ll see this story, and note the issue isn’t getting the money, it is getting CAUGHT taking the money and screwing up her launch for the Presidency! A position where the access to money and power would be unlimited! The ultimate “want your cake and eat it too” moment! Never a thought that it might be wrong!
Why? Because Hillary Clinton and many of her supporters are functioning sociopaths. The democrat party draws that personality to it. There are far more out there than you realize, and much like the debris left at the bottom of the sink, those personalities tend to congregate around the drain of Leftism. That is because they are drawn to the amoral, unethical, unaccountable promise authoritarianism offers. No conscience? No problem. No moral clarity? No problem. No guilt over your actions harming others? No problem! Come on in, the water is fine and the money is everywhere.
Also, it should be noted that when I Googled this OBVIOUS example of corruption there was no major media site in the results, only the hated “alt-right” sites out there telling this story and warning people about Hillary’s bad character. Which points to this article and the comments Obama made about bad news being put on the Web and how that should be controlled (and it will- all part of the sell off of the Internet).
Why are the rules of journalism being rewritten this election year?
My local newspaper, the Sonoma County Press-Democrat, is so clearly in the tank for Hillary Clinton that I no longer take pleasure in my morning read. Trump’s acceptance speech, for example, was covered on the front page with two stories: on the left a straight, albeit somewhat judgmental, account of the speech, and on the right a “fact check” that disputed every point made by the GOP nominee. Clinton’s speech was covered with three front page stories, with headlines describing her nomination as “historic,” “inspiring” and “trailblazing.” A relatively mild fact-checking piece was relegated to the back pages.
This transparent bias is a national phenomenon, infecting both print and television media to such an extent that it has become almost impossible to separate coverage of the Trump campaign from attempts to tear it down. The media has long been accused of having a liberal slant, but in this cycle journalists seem to have cast themselves as defenders of the republic against what they see as a major threat, and in playing this role they’ve lost the ability to assess events rationally.
To take a recent example: Trump said at a news conference that he hoped the Russians — who are accused of hacking the Democratic National Committee’s computers — would release the 30,000 emails previously erased by Clinton’s staff. The DNC went ballistic, claiming that Trump had asked the Russians to commit “espionage” against the United States. Aside from the fact that Trump was obviously joking, Clinton claims those emails, which were on her unauthorized server during her tenure as secretary of State, were about her yoga lessons and personal notes to her husband — so how would revealing them endanger “national security”? Yet the media reported this accusation uncritically. A New York Times piece by Maggie Haberman and Ashley Parker, ostensibly reporting Trump’s contention that he spoke in jest, nonetheless averred that “the Republican nominee basically urged Russia, an adversary, to conduct cyber-espionage against a former secretary of state.” Would it be a stretch to conclude from this description that the New York Times is a Trump adversary?
The DNC emails, published by Wikileaks, reveal a stunning level of collaboration between important media outlets and the Democrats. Former DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz sought to silence NBC’s Mika Brzezinski, who had found fault with the DNC’s role in the primaries. The emails have headings like “This must stop.” Incredibly, NBC’s Chuck Todd agreed to act as a go-between, even arranging a call between Wasserman Schultz and Brzezinski. Which raises the question: Why was a major media figure taking his marching orders from the Democratic party chair — and how did this affect his network’s coverage of the Trump campaign?
The media is corrupt. The media HATES Americans who are not like them. The media loves the access and the pats on their collective heads the elites give them. And they like the money they get covering up for their pals. Just ask Katie Couric and her new Hampton house. Because of this, they are NOT TO BE BELIEVED. If Chuck Todd or the anchor at CBS tells you the sky is blue- go outside and see for yourself!
So now where do people go for input they feel is accurate. Here is where Trump is onto something. He has captured the social media moment from using the Internet to tweeting his positions and his opinions- endlessly it seems at times. This helps cut through the absolute blackout now being executed by the MSM. He doesn’t help himself, being so undisciplined, but apparently even when he isn’t, he’s blacked out.
Will it work? I have no idea. But it is different and driving the HRC/Media cabal nuts! (Which is why they are running an independent candidate in Utah to steal ONE state from Trump. He if loses Utah he can’t win.)
The threat is even though they are trying to silence him outright now, all illusions of being unbiased just out the door, but they still can’t control everything. He may screw around and win, unless the Left figures out a way to steal the close states. Either way, he will be at the forefront of some kind of king making, opinion driving effort that will harass the elites on both sides for a long time. (which may have been his goal all along) Trump is tapped into the modern way of communication and mixing politics with entertainment. Which is a pretty smart way to communicate with people, who would rather watch a popular TV show than mess around with politics. One key is to keep the message simple- it is all rigged to screw you over.
As for Hillary? Well, she might win, and will be hated by more than half the nation on the day she puts her and on the fake bible. (She puts it on the real one, she might burst into flames…just saying… . )
I mean seriously. As bad as Trump is, at least he didn’t get this posted all over L.A.
Regardless of anything else, my advise is to pay attention. This is a historic time in our nation’s life. Wikileaks has stripped the lid off the inner sanctum of the “machine” that many have suspected existed at some level for generations.
When faced with my conspiracy friends yelling it’s all rigged I always took the position that it was an accumulation of like minded people with a like minded mindset in key positions- not rally a coordinated, daily contact, type of thing. That would be too hard to keep in line, right? Right??
Yet, the MSM and the people behind this conspiracy continue to ignore, well, the conspiracy! It’s right there in front of everyone and they still refuse to admit they were complicit in a long range effort to keep the truth from the people in order to make the people- as one insider termed- “compliant.”
Note the link I had to use is NOT from any major news source. That’s because when I Google it, the first page results have no major media hit. No mention…doesn’t exist…didn’t happen. This sort of thing is really, REALLY close to Mao’s world. My buddy, who is a MENSA bright guy, who loves history, pointed me toward Mao when I was trying to pigeonhole Obama, Clinton, et. al. I read a great book about his last ten years and how he manipulated the media and really the reality of his nation. Nothing that went wrong- like the deaths of seventy-five million of his people through Communist mismanagement EVER stuck to Mao. He just blamed others and people accepted it.
Here, we have the same type of media process. Obama/Clinton, et. al. say it didn’t happen, then it didn’t happen. They say someone else did it, then it is reported that they other guy did it. Even though the reporter KNOWS it is a lie! Amazing. And dangerous.
What is worse is the revelation of the lies isn’t dealt with by some kind of contrition or apology. Instead, those involved shut down the leak.
Ecuador has confirmed that it has temporarily cut off internet access in its embassy in London to Julian Assange, the founder of the whistleblowing site WikiLeaks, over fears that he was using it to interfere in the US presidential election.
The move followed the publication of leaked emails by WikiLeaks, including some from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) released just before the party’s convention in July, and more recently a cache of emails from the account of Hillary Clinton campaign adviser John Podesta.
On Tuesday, officials released a statement saying that the government of Ecuador “respects the principle of non-intervention in the internal affairs of other states” and had cut off the internet access available to Assange because “in recent weeks, WikiLeaks has published a wealth of documents, impacting on the US election campaign”.
Yes, a wealth of TRUTHFUL information that is affecting- as it SHOULD- our perception of our true reality. There’s nothing wrong with that. I will point out the Left has a long history of discovering and revealing embarrassing information, from the Pentagon papers to Watergate. Imagine if those had been dismissed and shut down successfully. Would the Left and the media say good idea? No, they didn’t.
Again, selective outrage.
What is wrong is the level of arrogance and dismissive nature they have toward the unwashed masses. One wonders if the leaks were about Trump or the Republicans, would there be such an outrage by anyone on the Left. The libels/elites have been proven to be selective in their outrage when it comes to certain things- such as abusing women.
In an email, uncovered in the latest WikiLeaks hack, Amitabh Desai, the Clinton Foundation’s director of foreign policy, writes to senior Clinton Foundation officials explaining the “summary of key points” from his meetings with the “Ambassadors from Qatar, Brazil, Peru, Malawi, and Rwanda, in Washington, DC.”
On his meeting with the Ambassador of Qatar, Desai wrote, “Would like to see WJC [William Jefferson Clinton] ‘for five minutes’ in NYC, to present $1 million check that Qatar promised for WJC’s birthday in 2011.”
“Qatar would welcome our suggestions for investments in Haiti – particularly on education and health,” Desai wrote in the email. “They have allocated most of their $20 million but are happy to consider projects we suggest. I’m collecting input from CF Haiti team.”
The Clinton Foundation’s shady business dealings in Haiti have received intense criticism in recent days, after emails revealed how senior Clinton Foundation staffers coordinated with top Hillary Clinton State Department officials to give special treatment to people identified as “FOB” (friends of Bill Clinton) or “WJC VIPs” (William Jefferson Clinton VIPs) in the wake of the deadly 2010 earthquake in Haiti.
Qatar has donated $1,000,000 to $5,000,000 to the Clintons, with many of those high-dollar donations flooding in while Hillary Clinton was serving as Secretary of State.
The oil rich Arab nation’s horrid human rights record is no secret.
Seems a million dollars is the threshold that limits their moral standards. (Then again, this is all about the trillions of dollars worldwide the elites are siphoning off isn’t it.)
The MSM is opened by large corporations all vying for favors. Those favors are granted by large governments run by left leaning and elitist individuals. Okay, I get the game. What I don’t get is the attitude that the average Joe has no say in this. We are a democratic Republic and in that have the right to say “enough”. Which is where the DNC/Clinton “TRUMP PLAN” went sideways.
It is my opinion had no Wikileaks occurred, the Dems would have dispatched Trump easily. He was, after all, the perfect Trojan Horse. He didn’t even realize he was a plant and fell for all that free attention by the MSM, thinking “They love me, they really LOVE ME!” When the truth is they were setting him up for the fall all along. That is just freaking mean, and corrupt, and dangerous.
The truth is he is a horrible, egotistical, stubborn, intellectually lazy candidate. I warned the Trumpsters in my circle when it started this was a set up, and one website even banned me from commenting because I kept hitting the same note- he’s a plant!
I even thought he was in on it at first, but then figured that changed when he realized he might actually win. Sadly, the truth is he got played, and Trumpsters got played too. But even being an unwitting Trojan Horse didn’t make him wrong, and it sure didn’t make the people who support him happy that they were being attacked by a machine intent on using their frustrations against them.
Bill Clinton is a genius, but this time, his plan went sideways big time. His problem was he was trying to polish a turd. (more crap references later!) Hillary is the single worst candidate ever. Her personality is more suited for Stalin’s Russia than modern times. She really is a money grubbing, hating all others outside her tight circle, paranoid, authoritarian who is dismissive of the “little people” she seeks to rule. And she has no problem eliminating opposition, as long as someone else does it for her. We know now through the FBI files that nobody likes her, NOBODY! Not even her bodyguards who begged off the detail. Why? She’s “that woman” that everybody knows and nobody likes, that happens to be more than a little nuts than most.
Nobody in the MSM will admit to just how bad this is. In fact, CNN is the worst and recently wrote an article worthy of the NYTimes’ Duranty, who during Stalin’s purges where twenty-five million people were murdered, claimed Communism was the best thing ever! Read the linked CNN article. Nothing about the Trump Trojan horse plan, or the complaint about Catholics, or the criminal collusion between her campaign and PACs. Nope, nothing to see here. (I’ve been watching their website for months now. If you read ONLY CNN you would have no idea what the truth was. That is scary.)
Thank goodness for the Internet…at least for now.
The Left has been trying to find a way to corral the Tea Party part of America. Obama used the IRS to harass them, the media to lie about them, and the Left did its level best to keep the lid on. The new plan was apparently to give them a Judas goat in the name of Trump and have him lead them into the wilderness, while the establishment candidates on both sides kept up their collective abuse of citizens rights and stealing our money.
However, that didn’t work out at all. Just like the threegenerations of French kings back in the glory days of France, the elites stopped really paying attention to the masses, assuming they would be loyal, and those who weren’t would be taxed and harassed into silence. That abuse continued until the last king- Louis the Sixteenth and his wife ran out of time and money. You see, each generation of kings had borne offspring just a little more corrupt and dismissive than the prior. A history lesson often repeated throughout all empires. By the time the third generation came into power, the abuses were too much for the population to bear.
Hillary is Louie the Sixteenth. She is starting out of the box in a nation filled with angry and distrustful people from all walks of life. She is arrogant, dismissive and I really do believe doesn’t grasp just how much she’s hated. From day one, she will not have the loyalty of anyone outside her small group of elites. If she speaks, most of America will either dismiss her or outright believe she’s lying. There was an old joke from the nineties that said, “Do you know when a Clinton is lying? Their lips are moving!” Twenty years later, nothing has changed. She lies when she could tell the truth. She is a bitter, angry, shrewish woman. In her defense, she has put up with abuses no spouse should be forced to bear, but she did it knowingly in order to get here; right here, right now- running for President. That kind of drive is frankly a little scary. Imagine if she wants to motive our nation to do something. The first thing she will have to overcome is the fact we assume; 1. She’s lying. 2. She’s making money off of it. 3. And if we complain we’ll be targeted for destruction.
I can’t tell if our time with her as President will be this-
“The substance was housed in a bottle thrown through one of the building’s front windows.” “The flammable substance appears to have ignited inside the building, burned some furniture and damaged the building’s interior before going out,” police told local CBS affiliate, WNCN.
“Whether the bomb was meant to kill, destroy property, or intimidate voters, everyone in this country should be free to express their political viewpoints without fear for their own safety. We will be requesting additional security at all Republican Party offices and events between now and Election Day to ensure the safety of our activists, volunteers, and supporters,” Dallas Woodhouse, executive director of the North Carolina Republican Party, said according to WNCN.
His brother was more cautious saying it could be a fake attack.
Or maybe some BLM rioter, whose leader has already threatened to burn down cities if Trump wins, got a head start.
We’ll see, but this is just the latest attack on Trumpsters. Something I don’t think they’ll forget soon. If Trump gets in, I hope he gets his people to fix things like this.
There will be more burnings, just elite playhouses next time.
When a person gets up in the morning they make a conscious decision how they are going to conduct their day. Do the right thing, the wrong thing, the smart thing, the stupid thing, or maybe just the corrupt thing.
CNN’s Chris Cuomo told viewers it is illegal for them to possess emails leaked by the website WikiLeaks, and as a result they could not read them and had to rely entirely on the media to learn about their content.
Cuomo’s comments were made early Wednesday morning, but they attracted no attention until a clip was uploaded to YouTube Sunday morning.
Nothing about the possession of someone’s private IRS returns illegally gotten by someone and exposed by the NYTimes.
Hmmm…. good little commie. Stalin would be happy with you.
Over at NewsBusters, Bozell, a long time inside Washington media circle expert admits he got it wrong. He always thought the coordination of liberal left wingers in the media and in the government was more one of osmosis and upbringing than a ongoing collaboration with an evil goal.
We once scoffed at the suggestion there was some form of a liberal media conspiracy against conservatives. Do liberals meet for breakfast and plan attacks on their ideological foes? Of course not, we’d answer. It’s not a conspiracy. It’s a mindset wherein what is liberal is good, and what is conservative is in opposition to what is good.
No, apparently it was a conspiracy after all. The latest e-mails emerging from WikiLeaks have brought in the evidence. There is an unquestionable collusion between “objective” journalists and the Clinton campaign. Leaked e-mails show her operatives discuss which reporters were the most pliant recyclers of their narratives (they picked Maggie Haberman of The New York Times), but reporter Mark Leibovich – also from the Times – gave Hillary’s communications director Jen Palmieri veto power over what quotes were included in a Hillary profile in July.
It’s not just WikiLeaks which has provided numerous other examples documenting the inseparable nature of the Clinton-media relationship. What TMZ has reported on the Trump tape with the shameless sex banter is far more telling. “Multiple sources connected with NBC tell us … top network execs knew about the video long before they publicly said they did, but wanted to hold it because it was too early in the election. The sources say many NBC execs have open disdain for Trump and their plan was to roll out the tape 48 hours before the debate so it would dominate the news cycle leading up to the face-off.”
In this election, it’s now documented fact that “news gathering” was not the goal of the architects of our top newspapers and newscasts. It was victory for the Democrats.
This is not a revelation to those in America who saw the conspiracy. I was with Bozell, thinking that this was more culture than conspiracy. But now we know through Wikileaks the coordination was literally real time and very focused. It’s like assuming a herd of cattle aren’t really working together, just following the lead steer. The cow in the back doesn’t know where the leader is going, she’s just watching the rear of the cow in front of her. But, it seems apparently now ALL of the herd knows what’s going on– in detail- and is working as a unit. Here is a partial list!
But working towards what? The conspiracy theorist say One World Government. At this point, I have no right to say they are crazy. In fact, with the international flavor of the elements aligned against Trump there may be some validity to that. More likely, it is a desire of a few to gain access to power and through that power over the masses. So THEY can control incomes, profits, land, governments and the people’s will. What? Okay, I concede, its sounds like the same thing!
Surprised? No. But disappointed. From now on, she should be introduced as “being on the list.”
Don’t believe me? Read this Wikileak post to Podesta. (Whom by the way is the linchpin here. He is the head of a liberal PAC supporting HRC, funded by Soros and a parking spot for all like thinking liberals. And he is the head of her campaign and a long time loyalist. So you cannot find a better intersecting point!) Gatewaypundit has a nice starting list of interesting emails.
Still don’t believe they are all in on it? Google it, no MSM media hit on the query. Take a look at the Washington Post front page- NOT A MENTION of the Wikileak documents. Only Trump flailing around over women accusing him of mistreatment. (A anticipated move by anyone who followed Trump for decades, and a smart move by the Dems.)
On that note, we now know that Trump was a Trojan Horse. He just didn’t know it. The Dems convinced the media to cover Trump for free and knock out all real competition Hillary could NOT take out- like Cruz, Rubio, Paul and Carly. And it worked, and silly Trump bit like the egotist he is! A normal person would have felt something was amiss, but I give Bill Clinton credit, he read the political landscape and Trump’s weaknesses.
In June 2015, Donald Trump announced his presidential campaign.
According to an email from Marissa Astor, Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook’s assistant, to Clinton campaign chair John Podesta, the campaign knew Trump was going to run, and pushed his legitimacy as a candidate. WikiLeaks’ release shows that it was seen as in Clinton’s best interest to run against Trump in the general election. The memo, sent to the Democratic National Committee (DNC) also reveals the DNC and Clinton campaign were strategizing on behalf of their candidate at the very beginning of the primaries. “We think our goals mirror those of the DNC,” stated the memo, attached to the email under the title “muddying the waters.”
The memo named Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz, and Ben Carson as wanted candidates. “We need to be elevating the Pied Piper candidates so that they are leaders of the pack and tell the press to them seriously,” the memo noted.
Clinton was widely presumed to be the Democratic presidential nominee long before the primaries began. This assumption was held by the mainstream media and the Democratic Party leadership. Expecting Clinton to be the nominee, the DNC and Clinton campaign developed strategies for the general election.
I don’t think they saw Wikileaks coming. But they are successfully blocking it from the narrative outside Trump’s main supporters. We know, they know, the mushy middle is more worried about the groping Trump’s done and if their Samsung Note 7 is going to blow up!
What do the elites want? I think stability with them on top making money. Trump challenges that stability. Brexit challenges it. Why they are destroying Europe with Muslim immigration if stability is their goal? That is a good question I can’t answer. But I fear there are reasons we don’t get yet. Islam in in opposition to the type of stability the elites want. Having Europe go native, so to speak, can’t be a good thing. And yet…
The truth is, well that there is no truth. Only lies spun to benefit those inside the special herd. Nobody is going to believe anyone anymore. With their now overt and bullish effort, the elites, who have used indoctrination to destroy our ability to think for ourselves, now find themselves faced with a large and angry group of people who don’t trust them anymore. And that group seems to have one goal- burn their playhouses to the ground.
And as for HRC…well if elected, she will go into office the most hated and distrusted human ever seen in the history of our nation. Usually we put them in thinking they are good guys and then watch as they become liars and corrupted. This time we are starting out with a corrupt, paranoid, liar, who truly hates us.
It doesn’t take a conspiratorial mind to see how that’s going to work out.
You have to understand something here. The fix was in. No pissed off FBI agent is going to change that. Now we hear they are mad because HRC was let off. Hell, EVERYBODY was going to be let off for the obvious reasons- everybody in government is now corrupted. Comey did the only thing he could do- shine a light on it.
What was the first hint? No grand jury. The DOJ attorneys inside the investigation never let it leak there was no grand jury? I thought there was one for a while, then realized something was up. Where is that resignation??!
Truth is the average federal employee is part of the great Leviathan that is the government. They get a great income, benefits and a great retirement- even if they are bad guys. Just ask Lois Lerner who is enjoying a package over 200,000 a year! They aren’t going to give that up over something as insignificant as the truth.
The decision to let Hillary Clinton off the hook for mishandling classified information has roiled the FBI and Department of Justice, with one person closely involved in the year-long probe telling FoxNews.com that career agents and attorneys on the case unanimously believed the Democratic presidential nominee should have been charged.
The source, who spoke to FoxNews.com on the condition of anonymity, said FBI Director James Comey’s dramatic July 5 announcement that he would not recommend to the Attorney General’s office that the former secretary of state be charged left members of the investigative team dismayed and disgusted. More than 100 FBI agents and analysts worked around the clock with six attorneys from the DOJ’s National Security Division, Counter Espionage Section, to investigate the case.
“No trial level attorney agreed, no agent working the case agreed, with the decision not to prosecute — it was a top-down decision,” said the source, whose identity and role in the case has been verified by FoxNews.com.
Comey lied when he said it was unanimous. He lied because the truth would only obscure what he was doing. The Congress has never asked to talk with the DOJ attorney inside the investigation to my knowledge. Why? Because either they can’t come in or won’t. So where’s the outrage?
There is a theory Comey wants to stay on as the FBI head. That won’t happen. He’s toast.
He ruined any trust over half of America would have had for HRC if she is elected. She will be the most hated and illegitimate President in the HISTORY of this nation. Nothing she says or does will be supported by half the nation. And the fact she earned that reputation by being a pathological liar and a paranoid totalitarian doesn’t help. If he stays, any reputation he has is forever gone. I can’t see that happening, but then again 200,000 a years forever is big money!
I want to see the unknown FBI agent come out, hold press conference, release his notes and throw his badge down.
The dam has broken. My Trumpster supporters are now mad as heck that someone dared release a video of Trump, well being Trump. Me, I was shocked it took so long and makes you wonder if the MSM/Dem/Bill Clinton machine had this planned all along. Hillary couldn’t beat a half drunk dog catcher- so they had to create something worse. (Update: turns out I was right. )
The e-mails also revealed that back in 2015, the Clinton campaign strategized about ways to elevate Donald Trump and other “extreme” Republicans — as “Pied Piper” candidates who would ultimately be so “unpalatable,” they’d help her win.
These “Pied Piper” candidates also included Ted Cruz and Ben Carson, according to the e-mail, sent to the Democratic National Committee on April 7, 2015.
The e-mail goes on to advise the DNC to “Force all Republican candidates to lock themselves into extreme conservative positions that will hurt them in the general election.”
Trump is a bullying, big mouthed, want to please daddy, hard working, hard charging New Yorker. In a sense he’s that blue collar guy with a lot of psychological baggage (daddy issues) who wants to just be the guy everybody admires and envies, to the point where he goes too far. The audio should be no shock to anyone! He’s been like that for decades! I followed his career since the eighties and he is just “that guy”. Like Bill Clinton is a womanizing cad, Trump is a blustering bully. Now he loves America, and he loves his New York blue collar roots. But…does that make him presidential material?
You see, being president isn’t being a CEO. It is being a public representative of three hundred twenty million diverse people. You have to be that guy who has a sense of a greater moral good and an understanding that you no longer represent just yourself and your own opinions but the nation and the people’s opinions. Long ago many politicians – including Presidents- forgot that rule. They only serve themselves and their own personal agendas and think they “deserve” their seats.
Which brings me to Hillary. She is a crazy mad woman. Paranoid, conniving, dangerous. She thinks after forty years of putting up with Bill’s crap she “deserves” the White House. Of course she doesn’t. In fact, after eight years of Obama, she will be the tipping point we all fear.
Think of America as the drunk at the end of the bar. He is pounding back one last drink and then freezes and slowly, ever so slowly, he begins to slide off. Now there is a time where you could reach over and grab him, to stop the leaning. But you don’t and as he goes over in slow motion suddenly gravity grabs him and he tumbles to the ground, landing hard on his head. That’s America today. We are in the “slippery slope” and heading for that rapid tipping point. One more inch and “BOOM” to the floor we go.
Hillary is that one more inch.
And she has done a thousand bad things to get the opportunity. Including this one.
Back in the nineties, when Bill was being a cad like Trump, Hillary covered for him. She also covered for him criminally- by hiding evidence for two years in her bedroom only to be “discovered” after the case was pretty much over. (sound familiar?) The evidence proved she was a money hungry corrupt person way back then. You know, spots and leopards.
Of course, all the people commenting on this and the politicians are running away. Because as one pointed out- you can be a cad…or a politician. (Applying to Republicans only of course. The democrats have no morals). Over at Powerline, the “genius of Trump”, as his supporters call his blundering errors, is wearing thin.
Through the primary season and the early stages of the general election, Donald Trump made any number of apparently boneheaded moves. His supporters, though, were always quick to tell us that Trump couldn’t be judged by ordinary standards. What seemed to be blunders were really acts of unique Trumpian genius! We heard this over and over.
Well, we are now a month out from the election, and newspapers are headlining Trump’s refusal to drop out of the race. We’ve got ’em right where we want ’em, right, fellas?
When this fiasco is over, I think we should go easy on those who thought Donald Trump was the GOP’s optimal nominee. A soft, Lincolnian peace, in other words. At a minimum, however, all Republicans should resolve never, ever again to nominate an amateur to run for president.
I may disagree with him in this way. An amateur can run, because all politicians are amateurs at one time, except the Kennedy clan and the Bushes. However, that amateur has to be of a certain character to defend against the attacks that surely will come. Trump does not have that character or history or nimbleness.
I got a lot of Twitter traffic today (@stevenfhayward if you don’t already follow)—maybe the most ever—for recounting Ronald Reagan’s reaction to the news of Gary Hart’s sexual peccadillos in 1987: “Boys will be boys—but boys will not be president.” While Hart was doomed, five years later we got more than a randy boy in the White House: we got full on sexual predator Bill Clinton, whose enabler wife is now on the ballot. A lot of respondents noted this fact, as though it should mean Trump should be held to the same standard, if not thought of more favorably, since Trump merely talked about grabbing women’s genitals while Bill Clinton actually did it.
But if conservatives stand for anything, it is to hold their own to a higher standard than liberals. It is a huge concession to what Pat Moynihan called “defining deviancy down” if we appeal to the Bill Clinton standard and the tendentious arguments liberals used in the 1990s to excuse his despicable behavior.
Beyond this, I’m wondering whether I can watch the debate this evening, or more to the point, let my kids watch it. The Clintons richly deserve to have their mendacity exploded in front of a huge audience. On the other hand, I can think of some rather effective Hillary retorts, and I imagine she’s got several in the can. Trump has already proven that he’s not very facile in a head-to-head debate with Hillary. Moreover, I’ve seen some press reports that there are polling and focus group results suggesting that a majority of Americans really don’t want to have Bill Clinton’s bad behavior from 20 years ago brought up. It’s not right; it’s not fair. But it is the world we live in.
I’m thinking the Clinton campaign is behind the release of this recording, and have run every angle on how it plays out. Everything seems in suspended animation right now. The next 24 to 48 hours may be the most extraordinary of any presidential campaign in our history.
At this point, the challenge for Trump is to embrace the battle he’s in and accept the trash filled dumpster that is now our general society. Hillary wants to roll around in the ditch, then swerve into that ditch at a hundred miles and hour and flip the car! Heck, half the population doesn’t vote or care. The other half watch reality shows and tweet like addicts, sharing mostly unintelligent comments. Maybe in this weird new world Trump fits in better than Hillary! If most young people think Jon Stewart is a news source and it’s not real unless it is re-tweeted, maybe Trump is onto something.
As I said to my friends, if I were Trump I would do the following. Invite Juanita and Paula and the gang to sit around Bill in the audience and give them a shout out at some point.
But in the beginning, I would open with this statement:
“I am not a professional politician, I’m a blue collar guy who is rough around the edges. Not politically correct or even someone of you would approve of. But blue collar guys build homes, grow towns, fight and win wars, keep your borders secure and work a lifetime making your lives easier and safer.
She, on the other hand, has lied to you- ALL of you- taken money from those who want to ruin our nation, and is willing to destroy the sovereignty of your country..for a fee.
So the choice really comes down to this; when you go to sleep at night do you trust a rough man to stand ready to defend your lives, or a person you fear will betray you for a handful a silver?”
Whatever the topic comes up, I would push it back onto Hillary and her “public/private” opinions. “Hillary is this what you are saying to us, or what you really believe? Because we know you have at least two opinions, one to the people who pay you, and one to the people you are trying to lie to.” Or maybe “That’s a nice position to take, how much did you get paid to take it?”
See? Easy…for a politician, which means Trump may not be able to pull it off. Regardless, his people realize that most of this is all about who is a democrat and who is a Republican. The double standard has always been infuriating. But that is the rule played in politics.
Eleven years ago Donald Trump was taped using vulgarity and boasting, like many playboys and locker room machos, about his prowess with women. Disgusting? Sure…but spare me the high dudgeon elicited by strategic release of those tapes, just as Wikileaks revealed more chicanery by Clinton.
Even some conservatives have joined the caterwauling declaring that this is proof positive that Trump is not “presidential.” Presidential??? That bar was lowered decades ago.
Was it presidential when John Kennedy invited Mafia molls to the White House for a roll in the hay? Was it presidential when he and his brother Triborough Fitzgerald Kennedy shared the sexual favors of a pathetic movie star?
Was it presidential when his successor, Lyndon Johnson- purveyor of the ruinous entitlement scam known as “The Great Society” showed his class in conducting press conferences from the toilet?
Was it presidential when Bill Clinton used government employees to find him sex partners? Or how about his encouragement of a besotted intern to become his er….private server…in the oval office?
Ted Kennedy had the gall to attempt a run for the White House and did anyone question whether it was presidential to back off a bridge into water and permit his passenger to drown while he swam away and tried to convince his cousin to take the rap? And Kennedy’s friend Chris Dodd also tried to get into the race for the White House even after he and Kennedy squeezed a waitress between them and fondled her in a sordid incident that begat the name “the Dodd-Kennedy sandwich. Did anyone say that Dodd was not presidential?
And finally, is it presidential for Obama to invite rappers to the White House who extol the murder of policemen and call women bitches and Blacks “niggas?” One was named “Common” and his poem includes : “They watching me, I’m watching them”Them dick boys got a lock of c*** in them.” The most recent presidential invite was in January 2016 when Kendrick Lamar met with President Obama in the Oval Office on Monday. Lamar’s “To Pimp A Butterfly” album shows a group of Black men in front of the White House holding champagne bottles and hundred-dollar bills on top of the dead body of a white judge. Obama has said the rapper’s “How Much a Dollar Cost” which is on that album was his favorite song of 2015. That’s presidential?
Not that I care, outside the fact that if she is lying, then you’ll see their family start their spiral into the ash heap of history.
It’s been reported her husband, the rapper/I’m a expert in everything but fail a lot, Kayne West is going broke. Probably. You can’t keep up the expense and the speed of their lifestyle and not struggle at some point.
Keeping Up With Kardashians is getting harder and harder for Kanye West. The self proclaimed genius is going broke trying to keep up with Kim Kardashian’s luxurious lifestyle. Read on for all the EXCLUSIVE details.
Help! Kanye West, 38, is hemorrhaging money. TheLife Of Pablo artist is struggling to keep up with the lifestyle of wifey Kim Kardashian, 35, and fears that one day he just might go broke, HollywoodLife.com is EXCLUSIVELY reporting.
Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. On the track “Saint Pablo,” Kanye raps about being not having enough money to last him a lifetime. And close buddies of his tell HollywoodLife.com there’s truth in his words. “Kanye’s been living the good life for way too long and the true is, he’s scared it won’t last. He doesn’t believe his lifestyle, the trips, clothes, houses, cars, jewelry and all the wealth he’s accumulated will last,” the source reveals. “Kanye only began to be flashy and ostentatious when he met Kim. He could deal with keeping up with the Jones.’ But keeping up with the Kardashians and constantly being image conscience, that’s a whole new ballgame,” the source continues. “Part of him does believe he will be broke because of the luxurious and cavalier lifestyle he and Kim live. Either that, or he will be working from the grave to keep her and their image alive.
So when you are famous but cash poor what do you do? In Kayne’s case you put on a fashion show, screw it up, then fire everybody including the fainting models- and then blame everyone but yourself.
An insider told us that the Yeezy staff seriously felt West’s wrath after his September fashion flop.
“He had his agent fire all 30 of his staff after the fashion show and got rid of his phone so people can only contact him via email,” an insider said. “He had a nervous breakdown after the show, and that’s what triggered it all.”
Reviews for the show — where the models looked totally miserable — ranged from the uncomfortable “hot mess” to the downright horrible, “abomination.” But another source close to the situation insisted that while Kanye wasn’t happy, “He didn’t have a ‘nervous breakdown.’ Some people got let go, and there was a reorganization of others who he moved back to the music side of things. He’s a grownup. He was reflective and disappointed in how things went . . . He took stock in what people were saying and he was disappointed. But he’s more determined than ever to get that stuff right. And as far as throwing away his cellphone? If he did, then it’s not the first time. He always does that.”
Two things come to mind here. 1- Why in the hell is his behavior excused so quickly? 2- what is driving that behavior? The first question is answered by our general decline in society. The second may be the pressure of keeping up with Kim and the gang. Seriously, that would be a lot of work.
At what point is it acceptable to doubt a Kardashian?
As celebrity peers took to Twitter to criticize anyone who made light of the situation, conflicting details continued to emerge about Kim Kardashian’s reported robbery in Paris.
First, Kim had been asleep, alone, in a posh, super-secret, no-address building favored by celebrities. Then her stylist was in the unit, but not on the same floor. Two armed men broke in. Within hours, it was five.
The robbers spoke English until they only spoke French. Her stylist called 911, except in Paris there is no 911 — you dial 112. But she may have just texted her bodyguard because cell service was bad.
The intruders gagged and bound Kim and tossed her in a marble tub while they robbed her of $11 million worth of jewelry and escaped on bicycles, which she may or may not have seen from her balcony, where she ran screaming after freeing herself in an ordeal lasting six minutes.
Skepticism spread online.
My biggest questions surround the actual robbery; the access and egress by the robbers, and the fact her security team was missing. You wear millions of dollars of diamonds, SOMEBODY is around keeping an eye on things! Or you are just stupid beyond belief. Which with Kim is a possibility.
Further questions, how many were on the security team belonging to her? Where were they? If the robbers tied up an employee downstairs, how did they know they wouldn’t run into someone else? What was the layout? Witnesses saw people on bicycles riding away. Bicycles? You rob someone of ten million dollars and you can’t find a car?
I may be wrong, but if I were the lead investigator my first reaction to the robbery would be “riiighht…”
