Star Warz Rogue hu?

What in the friggen world is Hollywood thinking? Must they go out of their way to be "edgy", to "interweave a larger narrative into the prevailing context", to take a dump on anything that is considered traditional?

Apparently Hollywood did not learn their lesson with the flop that was the Ghost Busters remake. Nope. They want to try again with a new slant on Star Wars.

What? Like isn't that the entire point of Star Wars? You have the good guys (the light side of the Force) and the bad guys (the dark side of the force). Heck, the bad guys even call it "the dark side"! They blow up entire planets to make a point. You literally CAN'T get any more clear cut than that.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is different. The first film of the Star Wars Anthology Series, hitting theaters Dec. 16, sidesteps this Jedi Manichaeism almost entirely.

Um, isn't like the main point of the entire Star Wars franchise that you have this "stuff" called "the Force" and some use it for good and some use it for bad and that those that use it for good are called Jedi? So you have created a Star Wars movie that does not focus on those at the center of the Star Wars franchise? Isn't that like having a zombie movie but making it all about cats and not have any actual zombies in it?

But I think a more modern, realistic viewpoint is that no one's good, no one's evil, and the only real way we're going to stop wars is to understand each other better, come together and empathize with them.

That quote is from the film's director, Gareth Edwards. WOW. That is some nuclear grade stupid right there. Sorry to burst your lefty safe-space but there really is actual "good" and actual "evil" in this world. There is gray too but the fact that gray exists does not mean white and black don't also exist. As an example, it is never OK to strap a explosive vest on a kid and send him into a crowd to blow everyone up. It is never OK to stone a rape victim to death. It is never OK to toss a gay man off of a roof. It is never OK to fly a plane full of innocent people into tall buildings. There is NO possibility of mutual understanding in those cases unless the folks doing those things truly come to fully understand how very wrong they are AND stop. You don't compromise with evil. The best you can do is show it the error of its ways in whatever way it takes.

Neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and men's rights activists plan to boycott Rogue One on the grounds that the Empire is another casualty of the "liberal media."

I am sure that all 12 remaining Neo-Nazis and all 8 of the official white supremacists (I believe that figure includes David Duke) left in America  plan to boycott the film. I am also sure that a whole lot of "normal" Star Wars fans will also boycott this film because they might be a little tired of their "stuff" being messed with by some self-important, new-age, preachy liberal director that thinks he "has an important" message to share with the world versus telling a good story within the existing franchise framework that has been supported by the fans all these many years.

The reviewer (Lili Loofbourow) is also one very "special ray of sunshine, open-mindedness, and tolerance". You can tell when she gives us this little peek behind her mental curtain:

One can certainly see why: White supremacists — or the "alt-right," as it prefers to call itself these days — would prefer a return to the status quo.

So, conservatives, those that want a smaller Federal government ARE not only the "storm troopers" in the latest Star Wars film but are also white supremacists! Also, the "alt-right", who might be more accurately defined as a slightly more militant version of the older Tea Party movement are JUST LIKE white supremacists! Just like. No difference! So they must be Nazis too since we learned earlier that White supremacists and Nazis are the same so if the alt-right is the same, they must be Nazis too.

Not happy calling half the country white supremacists (a.k.a. Nazis), she goes on to completely get her main premise wrong by claiming:

"darkest, most nuanced Star Wars movie — the one that expressly aims to humanize the Empire even more radically than The Force Awakens, which makes John Boyega's character Finn, a former stormtrooper, a sympathetic figure - is being boycotted for not catering enough to neo-Nazis."

So this Mensa member thinks "white supremacists" don't want to see the new "darkest, most nuanced Star Wars movie" because the Neo-Nazis think the film goes too soft on the Nazi stand-in figures (the Empire) by making them too empathetic?


So who is Lili? Let us check her bio...

Lili Loofbourow is the culture critic at TheWeek.com. She's also a special correspondent for the Los Angeles Review of Books and an editor for Beyond Criticism, a Bloomsbury Academic series dedicated to formally experimental criticism. Her writing has appeared in a variety of venues including The Guardian, Salon, The New York Times Magazine, The New Republic, and Slate.

A special correspondent for the Los Angeles Review of Books. What does that even mean? What is a "special correspondent" for book reviews? She is also editor for a series dedicated to formally experimental criticism. Do these people just string words together? What does that even mean? I tried googling that as I am not familiar with that phraseology. The only thing I could turn up is its use in an interview that hints that it has something to do with nonfiction. I gave up searching after reviewing three pages of results. Lili apparently writes for such literary greats as The Guardian, Salon, NYT, and Slate.

If her condescending article is in anyway representative of the attitude of the movie, I fully expect another critically acclaimed box office flop. Folks are getting fed up with being preached at by the ignorant elite. People are starting to push back. You are paid to entertain us, not preach or shove your politics down our throats. Not sorry if that means you get your feelz hurt.

Dual realities

It seems that more and more we are living in a twilight zone episode where half of the country lives in one reality and the other half lives in another, all the while being able to see and interact with each other.

Exhibit A: Make no mistake, Trump’s cabinet appointees embody the most rabid possible opposition to policies and positions of President Obama and Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. A unifier Mr. Trump is not.

In this reality, President Obama was and is the savior of the country (and the planet) and Hillary was his expected proper and correct successor to carry on that great legacy. In this reality Obamacare is not a disaster. ISIS is a JV team on the run, the Government did not attack the producer of a video and throw him in jail to help cover up the Government's culpability in the deaths of four Americans at a US embassy by terrorists. The DOE did not throw higher education into complete disarray over a bogus statistic that 1 in 4 women in college get raped. The EPA did not pollute the drinking water of dozens of communities by releasing mine toxic run-off into a river. Nor did the Government attack and alienate half of the population of the United States by calling them racist, homophobic, misogynistic, and Islamophobic.

Nope. In this reality (dare I say a community based reality) all is good. The unemployment rate is under 4% and not the 10+% that the rest of us see. The economy is BOOMING and is not the stagflation that the rest of us see. Needless black lives are lost at the hands of a racist police versus police related fatalities being not only at their lowest levels in dozens of years but that (in actuality) more whites are shot by police than blacks as is shown by actual FBI and Government crime statistics.

In this community based reality, Trump is a homophobic racist and all of his supporters are a "bag of deplorable". They also cling to their guns and religion, or so I was told by the worlds greatest orator. In this view of reality, Obama was NEVER a divider, the Democrats in Congress never rammed through the largest overhaul of healthcare using procedural shenanigans and on a pure party line vote. When half the country supports the Democrats and they win, the Republicans are the dividers. When half the country supports the Republicans and they win, the Republicans are the dividers. See how that works?. The left is all about protecting everyone from hate speech and they never use divisive rhetoric, all is unicorns and cupcakes.

Exhibit B: 6 Reasons Why Hillary Clinton Is The Best Presidential Candidate Ever

There are actually a LOT of people that see this as reality. That Hillary Clinton was not only eminently qualified to be President but was the absolutely BEST qualified EVER! Mandatory CAPS and exclamation point. To disagree is to prove one's self a misogynist of the highest order. In this alternate reality the 30+ years of scandals just does not exist. Hillary did not webonize the IRS to go after her opponents. She never covered for Bill's various bimbo eruptions, because there were none. The White House was not looted of US treasure by Hillary and Bill. Hillary never used the FBI to investigate her enemies. She never firing everyone in the White House travel office as political payback to donors. Hillary absolutely never ever kept a private, unsecured email server on which she conducted Government business for the proposes of soliciting and collecting bribes for her foundation from foreign governments and individual.

Exhibit C: Man made global warming is not only very real but is also a very imminent threat to the world

Let us ignore for a moment that the entire global warming "issue" has been completely called into question by the release of the Mann emails that show there was a concerted and deliberate effort to silence and discredit dissenters as well as "massage" the data to get the outcome they wanted. Let us ignore for a moment that the climate models used to "show" how bad things will be in a dozen years can't even accurately and reliably predict what the weather will be in 60 or even 30 days. Let us simply look at those that are pushing man made global warming the most, say Al Gore. Does this "champion" of AGW live a pious life or does he instead live in a massive and energy hungry McMansion? If you answered B, you would be right! Though he has made some changes to improve the home's efficiency, he also recently purchased another home, a $8.875 million ocean view villa in Montecito, Calif. with a less than stellar energy record of its own. If the "greatest living protector of the planet" does not care enough about global warming to live in a energy efficient, 1600 square foot home, give up flying private jets all over the world, and get a Prius, why should anyone take it seriously?

I could go on but I think you can see where I am going with this. It indeed seems at times that we as a country are living in two distinct but overlapping realities, one of which looks to be drifting away from actual reality at a faster and faster pace. This will not end well...

Philosophy 101, question #4

If you are all for banning this:
But think this is "free speech":

Life is hard, it is harder when you are stupid

A number of the "special snowflakes" from Washington State are beginning to realizing that actions have consequences. Consequences a number of them apparently did not fully think through.

Thanks to Washington voters, folks making minimum wage will soon be getting more money, but will some see that money evaporate as child care costs skyrocket?

Wait, what?

Parents that bring their children to Advent Lutheran Child Center here in Spokane Valley received quite the shock this week when they were told that the pay increase to the workers will be coming out of their pockets.

You mean the wage increase we approved will, like cost me, the consumer, money? How can that be? We thought that approving a mandatory minimum wage increase would mean that businesses (those evil rich folks) would be forced to pay their workers more. We never thought or meant that the money to pay for this would come from us!

Perry spoke with one parent who voted in favor of the initiative not realizing that it would affect child care.

Like really? The costs of the services I use will go up?

The increase is a direct result of the passing of Initiative 1433, increasing statewide minimum wage to $13.50 by 2020.

Ellis continued, "I understand that they need to capture their difference and make that money back, but then so does everybody else.”

Exactly! Maybe the light-bulb is starting to glow. If you artificially increase the costs of running a business by artificially inflating employee costs beyond the market rate (or that actual value of that labor) only one of two things can happen. Either some folks get fired (which has also been happening) to contain employee costs to within the allowable budget or the costs of services increases to account for the additional expenses. A number of businesses have had to shut their doors due to this increase as well as a number of low skill workers losing their jobs.

We reached out to several other daycares in the area, one says they haven't even addressed this yet and another said the tuition increase is inevitable.

Oh, and it is "cute" how some of the staff react.

"I feel the state needs to be helping a little more,” said Larson, “it would be nice if parents didn't have to spend a majority of their paychecks for childcare.”

Right! Other people that don't have children in childcare should be taxed even more to allow these parents to get some relief from reality. OUTSTANDING idea! You must be a Mensa member!

Sorry but you get zero sympathy from me. You voted for this. You got it approved. You now get to live with the consequences. Reality does not care one iota about your "feelz".

And so it begins...

Trump transition team announces five-year lobbying ban for appointees

Appointees to President-elect Donald Trump's administration will be asked to sign a form barring them from being a registered lobbyist for five years after they leave government service, officials announced Wednesday -- following up on the D.C. outsider's pledge to "drain the swamp."

It is a start! Let us hope he keeps to it.

President Elect Trump, starting off on the right foot

You have GOT to love this!

As Trump Leaves Press Behind for Steak Dinner, Incoming Admin Already Showing Lack of Transparency


In a highly unusual move, President-elect Donald Trump on Tuesday night left his Manhattan residence without notifying the reporters covering him or giving any indication of where he was going.

The maneuver seemed to deliberately limit access to the media.

So, the media that treated him first like a side-show and then when it looked like he actually had a chance, like a pariah, is distraught that he is not kissing their asses? Really? LOL!

With his Tuesday night actions, the Trump Administration is shaping up to be the least accessible to the public and the press in modern history.

It only feels that way to the press because they have been wearing blinders for the past 7 years. They have not cared what the Obama Administration has been doing. They have been too blinded by the halo they put on his head. They are singularly incurious when Democrats are involved.

A week after the election, Trump hasn't yet held a press conference, the longest any recent president has waited to speak to the press. That continues a weeks-long drought that's been going on since mid-summer, when Trump last answered questions from the press.

Funny, I don't recall this same level of angst when Hillary was not holding press conferences for dozens of weeks.

Trump has also refused to travel with the press corps since the election, a continuation of his campaign practice of flying in a separate plane from the media that covered him.

Again, good for him. He is not a Democrat President Elect. He won't get the fawning, fan-boy treatment so why should he subject himself to that? No sane person would.

The media covering the president-elect have also not yet been offered briefings on his transition efforts, which was a typical practice for past presidents that allowed the public to keep apprised of the details of the new government.

Again, why should he? So that the press can start attacking his every decision and highlight every mis-step (or just make them up when they can't find them)? The press has shown that he will not be treated fairly. Why should he go out of his way to help them?

The press have and are going out of their way to call this the "most divisive" election and a "contentious" election. The left is rioting in the streets. The left is beating up people. The left is burning down buildings and blocking traffic. THAT is what is making this divisive and contentious. Funny how when Obama won (twice!) despite how racist this country was reported to be, there were no riots, no burned down buildings, no blocked highways. You don't think that conservatives "felt bad" that the other guys won? The only difference then versus now is that then the media's (and left) guy won and now the media's (and left) gal lost. Trump is not the problem, Racism is not the problem. The left and the media are the problem.

Of cars and ditches...

As the world's greatest orator famously said: “After they drove the car into the ditch, made it as difficult as possible for us to pull it back, now they want the keys back,” Obama said of the GOP. “No! You can’t drive. We don’t want to have to go back into the ditch. We just got the car out.” Well no, no you didn't. You not only didn't get that car out of the ditch, Mr. President Three-putt. Out of spite [because as you also famously said "I won!"] you and your's slashed the tires, broke all the windows, shoved a crow-bar into the radiator and then set the entire thing on fire.

Not happy with that, you and yours then attempted to nuke the car from orbit by nominating Hillary for POTUS. Again, let that sink in. Hillary. The single largest example of a failed politician in the last 40 years. The only reason anyone knows her name is because she was married to a guy that got into politics and eventually became President. Granted, she had more experience than you when you ran but even you didn't have as poor a public record as she does. You even threw her a bone and let her be SOS [of which she was also lousy at] but she even managed to screw that up AND start a number of scandals in the process. But enough about her. She is and was just a symptom of a larger problem.

You had a phone and a pen (as you also said) and you along with your entire administration did not care at all for America (meaning the entire country). You only cared for your friends. For almost 8 years you have acted like spoiled children who had the house to themselves while mom and dad were away for the week-end. Just like spoiled children, you threw a party and trashed the place.

We are now saddled with a worse healthcare system than we had, much higher debt, more civil unrest, worse racial tensions, an economy on life-support, involvement in more wars, an increase in ISIS, a fed that prints money like it grows on trees, and a crushing increase in regulations. You needlessly threw good money at shaky alternate energy companies, screwed over the middle class, denigrated the police, and needlessly stuck your nose into local affairs (Beer summit anyone? If I had a kid, he would look like...).

The majority of the country has decided that adults need to be in charge for a while. These might not be the best adults but they are all we have. If one is honest, it has to be said that they could [COULD not WOULD] do worse. They would be hard pressed but it is not impossible. The Republicans have shown that they do have the capacity to play Russian roulette with a fully loaded gun but with a complete and total outsider in the driver's seat, odds are he will manage to keep them from pulling the trigger.

Well I guess this is goodbye. I believe that you wanted to be President more than you wanted to do President. You struck me as someone more infatuated with the though of being President than of someone that understood that it would be actual work and wanted to do it. Again, like a kid that LOVES the idea of having a pony but does not want the responsibility of actually taking care of one. Well you will soon not have that worry any more. I can only hope that you are so relieved to not have to pretend any longer that you go quietly into the lecture circuit and leave the new administration alone. In that sense, be a Bush and not a Carter. Go quietly into that good night. Avoid the temptation to play arm-chair quarterback with the new administration. You will have ample opportunities as the media will make you their "second guessing" go-to guy but don't. Show the new administration the same courtesy you were shown by the one you replaced. There will be plenty of people that will push you to do otherwise but resist them. Be a bigger man in retirement than you were as President. You really can afford to. The lecture circuit can be quite profitable, ask Bill.

At least one liberal gets it...

Trigger Warning: This video contains a LOT of truth and profanity...

Thursday, November 10, 2016

After glow...

Color me shocked! I really, honestly believed that Team Hillary had this thing stolen weeks ago. I did not dare hold out any hope that the most corrupt, dishonest, treacherous women to ever attempt to gain the Office of the President could be stopped.

America did it.

Let that sink in for a moment.

American did it. The country managed to stop the Clinton juggernaut from obtaining the brass ring.

This is a "very good thing". For many reasons, some of them and my thoughts are:

  1. Hillary has been denied the title of POTUS. Blow the horns, pop the Champlain, and throw a party! Sadly this may be the only "justice" she ever faces for the multitude of crimes she has committed, not the least of which was/is treason against this country with her criminal handling of classified information.
  2. The American press received a well deserved smack-down. They were SO wrong! I also hope that Donald Trump keeps them in their place. They played fast and loose with the truth and conspired to deceive the entire country about both the Obama administration and candidate Hillary. We will not forget and we will take a long time (if ever) to forgive. They need you a lot more than you need them Mr. Trump. Don't take any crap from them.
  3. The American press will suddenly rediscover the ability to perform some of their journalistic duties such as serve as a check on government power. Don't expect it to be anything close to fair or balanced but at least it won't be a slobbering, adolescent LOVE fest like we have had to suffer through for the last 7 years.
  4. The Republicans have kept control of Congress and now control the Executive. DON'T F*** IT UP! You got it despite NOT deserving it because Hillary was and is so awful. Support Trump and DO good with the majority you were given. There is MUCH to fix from the last 7 years. Get going.
  5. The political elites received a well deserved smack-down. Good. We the People still have a little muscle left and it was refreshing to see it flexed. Learn and remember, you folks all work for us the citizens, not the other way around. Do your jobs or you're fired! Mid-terms are right around the corner and don't forget, we are not happy right now. Satisfied maybe, happy NO. You stand in the way and you will be replaced and then you will have to get a real job.
  6. The SJW crybabies are having a melt-down. Good. As a group, you are squandering your birthright and country for your "feelz"instead of taking the time to learn what Burnie and your St. Hillary had actually done while in public service. If you knew what she actually was, you would have worked harder to have a viable candidate. Instead you had a tired old socialist and a tired old criminal. Nether was a good strategy. Instead of a worthy candidate, you wanted to "make a difference". Did not the last 7 years teach you anything about wanting to be part of something historic? Well you were. Happy now?
  7. Lastly, this is good because I actually believe that Trump cares for and loves this country and will do what he can to "make America great again". That he will try to "drain the swamp" and clean up DC. It sure as heck needs it.
Good luck President Elect Trump. We wish you the best and God bless.

An't that the truth!

The Democrat culture of corruption

You can expect more of the same under President Hillary.

Federal Election Commissioner Ann Ravel wished to step down until she met with President Barack Obama in early 2016, who persuaded her to stay on board through the November election in return for two favors, a senior federal government official has told The Daily Caller.

Obama told Ravel she could move back and do most of her work from California and that she would be supported in her effort to replace California Attorney General Kamala Harris as Attorney General if Harris were to win her Senate election.

“I believe it is improper for an FEC commissioner to be having a discussion and making deals with a sitting President, who is in essence the leader of the Democratic Party,” Hans von Spakovsky, a former FEC commissioner under President George W. Bush and currently a senior legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation, told TheDC. “Given the fact that the FEC commissioner everyday is dealing with cases that directly and indirectly effect that same political party.”

Von Spakosky added, “In my time as a commissioner I never had a single meeting with the president in the White House, and I would consider it wrong to do so because of the fact we handle so many matters involving his political party.”

Less than a month after her meeting with President Obama, Ravel voted to dismiss an enforcement action against Obama and the Democratic National Committee for allegedly taking foreign money at a fundraiser.

Nothing new here. You may remember that President Obama's donation web site was inadvertently "broken" in that it illegally allowed foreign donations to be accepted (they disabled some address verification code/checks). I don't recall ever hearing that they got in trouble for that crime nor do I recall hearing that they gave back the illegally obtained money. Funny that, eh?

If you want any sort of accountability from your government, your only choice is to vote for Trump. Sad but true. The press will NOT go against Hillary. The Democrats in the Federal Government will NOT go against Hillary (think DOJ, FEC, IRS, etc.). The Democrats in Congress will NOT go against Hillary. The Republicans in Congress are weak sauce as well. If however, Trump becomes President, they all will be falling all over themselves to hold him accountable. That is reality.

Trump is the absolute worst Presidential candidate we have had in decades, except for Hillary. It is sad that we have come to this place where the best reason to vote for Trump is that he is not Hillary. Hillary is so completely awful that just about anyone else you could pick would be better. It is a sad commentary on this country and on its citizens and media that she has a very real (one could say likely) chance to become President. She should not only not be running but should actually be in jail. I can not even imagine what is going through the minds of those that support her. Do they not care about justice? Do they just not believe their lying eyes? Is it just too important to elect a woman that any woman will do, even Hillary? Do they believe that it is her turn and she has earned it? What? She and her husband have been slopping out of the public trough for 30ish years and have made themselves multi-millionaires. They have also managed to soil the office of the Presidency, bring shame upon the country, sell out her interests, and reveal her secrets out of both stupidity and for profit. What sort of insanity has gripped this country that she could even run? Unbelievable, just unbelievable.

Dem hypocrisy on Comey...

How things change in just a week...

So last week when Comey let Hillary off the hook for being criminally careless (at a minimum) with classified information, Comey was FANTASTIC! This week because an additional 600K plus emails were uncovered (some could be duplicates of what they already have) and as a result Comey is reopening/continuing the investigation, he is a pariah.

If liberals/Democrats didn't have double-standards, they would have no standards at all.

For an extra good laugh, watch this video clip of Carville (Democrat hatchet-man) literally loose it all over this latest turn of events.

Sorry but this is down right hysterical, to watch him loose it like this. He has gone full blown nutter. Could not happen to a nicer guy. He has been carrying water (slime) for the Clintons for years and years. He has been involved in so many dirty tricks and con-jobs for the Democrats and Clintons. He has gone on TV and defended the undefinable. He then continued to cover for them when he got his news gig. This is at least a small measure of justice to watch him melt down.

More revelations about Hillary "what ever it takes" Clinton

Here are some "interesting" tidbits. These come from a meeting Hillary had back in 2006 when she was running for re-election in New York, audio at the link.

“I do not think we should have pushed for an election in the Palestinian territories. I think that was a big mistake,” said Sen. Clinton. “And if we were going to push for an election, then we should have made sure that we did something to determine who was going to win.”

This certainly adds weight to the opinion [or fact] (reveled earlier though the Podesta email leaks) that Hillary, the DNC, and liberals have no qualms about "fixing" elections for the last 40 or so years, here or abroad.

Hillary is also all about the "moral equivalence" in that Hamas is just like Israel via this gem:

“And then, when, you know, Hamas, you know, sent the terrorists, you know, through the tunnel into Israel that killed and captured, you know, kidnapped the young Israeli soldier, you know, there’s a sense of like, one-upsmanship, and in these cultures of, you know, well, if they captured a soldier, we’ve got to capture a soldier.”

Yep. No difference between these two "cultures". One that is the most free and democratic in the entire ME and the other that sees nothing wrong with strapping bomb-vests onto women and children to kill innocent civilians, shows cartoons about killing Jews to their kids, and encourages kids to attack Jews with knives and rocks. They are exactly equivalent!

This woman should be in jail, not on the campaign trail.

P.S. Don't you think she looks tired?

"Listen the Bushes would never do this"

Clinton sleaze on MSNBC Morning Joe, Morning Joe! Do you understand how bad this has to be for Morning Joe to spend 17 minutes on this? Morning friggen Joe!

Either it is so bad that even MSNBC feels that they have to react and take notice to try and salvage any small part of their remaining honesty (LOL) or they believe that Hillary is not going to win and are trying to tack back to center (haha) to hold on to some (any?) of their audience.

I love the line "Listen the Bushes would never do this" and she not only gets no argument, she gets affirmation from someone else on the panel. No one can even imagine anyone but the Clintons doing this and all of the rest of the things they have been doing over the last 30 years and somehow they continue to get away with it all. Talk about your "teflon don", Here is a pair that can teach the mob a thing or two. In spite of this and much more, Hillary has a very, very good chance of being the next POTUS. Let that sink in. President Hillary Clinton. It is almost enough to cause one to wish for SMOD...

Obamacare, working as designed

How is this for "hope and change"? Also, don't forget "if you like your plan, you can keep your plan". "If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor."

That is just a sample of what is going on. There are increases everywhere. There is network tightning everywhere. There are health insurers fleeing markets everywhere. Here is another side-splitter, “Obama claims families will save $2,500 under the ACA (i.e. Obamacare)".

Remember when "we" said that this would happen, that this was "designed" to happen?

So much for the "truth team". And least you forget:

This was "as designed". Review the history. Obamacare (i.e. the ACA) was a stop-gap plan to force feed Americans government run "single-payer". Ask any Veteran that makes use of the VA network how that is working out. Rest assured, our political class will not have to worry about the healthcare system they are forcing the rest of us into. They will always have their "Cadillac plans". You and I? Not so much.

Oh, remember what a good time all of the Democrats and the press (but I repeat myself) had laughing at those stupid Republicans with all of their "death panel" talk? Well read this: Terminally ill mom denied treatment coverage— but gets suicide drug approved. Yep, Republicans were the stupid ones...

Clinton video showing her lecture State Dept. staff on cybersecurity in 2010

You read that right! Miss "you mean wipe like with a rag?" Clinton. Miss "did not attend one single cyber-security training class while at State" Clinton. Miss "send classified information to/from her private, illegal email server" Clinton.

So she clearly knew that cyber-security was important. She clearly knew the address/URL of the State Department was a ".gov" site. She clearly knew where to go to get "proper" security information.

SO she clearly knew she was doing something wrong, out of the ordinary, not proper, not approved, not secure, not something anyone else would or could do.

What did she promise to the Director of the FBI or what did President Obama say to the Director of the FBI to keep him from recommending charges against her? Any one of us would go to jail for a mere fraction of the security failures she has been documented doing.

Weapons grade stupid...

Watch this video clip...

That is some serious weapons grade stupid right there. Democrats passed Obamacare along party lines with ZERO Republican votes and it never had a majority of citizen support. Republicans tried to be involved but Democrats wanted NO changes to it. Democrats used tricks and shenanigans to get it passed and were all in everyone's faces when it did passed. Remember "we have to pass it to see what is in it"? Remember the all of the Suck it, we won. All the high-fives and all the laughing and partying when it was signed? They OWN it 100%, lock, stock, and barrel!

Now that it is crashing down around their heads (like it was always meant to) out come the lap-dogs to tell everyone why it is the Republicans that are to blame for this catastrophe. Those BAD, EVIL Republicans tried to repeal it (like 60 times) instead of trying to fix it. "They should have worked with us to fix it." There was NEVER any fixing this P.O.S. as it was never designed to work. Read back through the post-passage data dumps resulting from the FOIA lawsuits. Obama, Democrats in Congress, the insurance companies, and their (haha) economic talking heads LIED. It was NEVER going to be sustainable. It was always a gateway to Government run, single payer insurance. It was designed to crash and burn. The only thing they are upset about is that it is crashing and burning NOW (before the election) instead of in 6 to 8 months after Hillary is safely in office.

Well too bad toots. You own this. Every Democrat owns this. Obama owns this. Hillary owns this.

Why is she not in prison (part 4)...

OK, check this out.

So, can we safely assume that one of the reasons that the F.B.I. did not find Hillary culpable is that they were also trying to save Obama from repercussions?

That sounds like crazy talk but what else can you surmise from this email message thread?

Donald Trump: A moment of reckoning

When he tries, he can give a good speech. He just doesn't seem to try all that much.

No such thing as voter fraud? Think again...

Operatives for the DNC admit that not only IS there voter fraud but that they have been doing it for at  least 50 years!

Follow the link, watch the video, and read the article. It is a "must see"!

Rigging the Election

So, Donald could be right when he says that if he looses, it is because it is rigged...

In a related note:

Woman Backtracks on Assault Claim After O’Keefe Video. “A woman who accused a Donald Trump supporter of punching her outside a Trump rally in North Carolina is backtracking after James O’Keefe and Project Veritas released video showing Democrat operatives claiming she was a trained activist. 69-year-old Shirley Teter of Asheville now says it is possible that 73-year-old Richard L. Campbell merely touched her accidentally, as his attorney had claimed all along.” Hat tip to Instapundit...

A foreshadow of a Clinton Presidency?

Authorities are investigating whether a Democratic Party campaign bus illegally dumped raw sewage in Gwinnett County Tuesday morning.

According to the police report, authorities were called to the O’Reilly Auto Parts on Grayson Highway after reports that an RV was dumping its sewage into a storm drain.

A store employee told police that he watched an RV affiliated with the Democratic National Committee stop in the turn lane of Grayson Highway in front of the store.

The employee says he watched someone get out of the RV and open the sewage drain. Raw sewage then spilled onto the roadway and into the storm drain.

The Clinton bus takes a dump on Georgia just like a President Hillary will take a dump on America.

Seems like SOP for Democrat politicians and the Clinton group especially; "Do as we say, not as we do." Environmental laws like security laws, ethics laws, local laws, and federal laws are for the little people. Not her highness...

Trump Talk

So the elites, the MSM, the Democrats, the liberals, the Republicans, etc,, etc., etc. are all in a tizzy over some crude talk by Trump about women from about a decade ago, while he was still "just a citizen". This is apparently "over the line" and now Trump really, really "must go" in order to save the Republic. Really?

"Everyone" is apparently more upset over some crud comments about women by Trump from a decade ago than they are about actual crud actions against women by Bill and Hillary that have been going on FOR decades.

Hillary jokes about getting a child rapist off. Bill has a decades long history of physically abusing and raping women. Hillary has a decades long history of running interference for Bill by helping to cover it up and/or trash the women accusers.

Bill more recently was in the news for taking multiple junkets to "Lolita island" with some rich palls in order to engage in some under-age action. Again, Hillary runs interference.

Apparently to the gatekeepers, Trumps old words are more bothersome than Bill and Hillary's long term actions as it relates to women. Hypocrites one and all.

Trump is no prize and he is probably the last person I would consider voting for to be President but I will vote for him eagerly if that keeps Hillary and Bill out of the White House, because despite what one would hope for, the reality is we only have option A or B. You have to pick one and don't fool yourself by thinking that if you do ANYTHING but vote for Trump (stay home, vote third-party, etc.) that you are not in reality de facto voting for Hillary. Sad but true. Anything but a vote for Trump is a vote for a lying, conniving, cheating, woman abusing, woman raping, state secret exposing, sex in the Oval Office with interns, favor selling, influence peddling, pair of grifters.

Weigh that against a guy that trash talked about women and tell me which is more demeaning to the office of the President.

P.S. Here are some of the Lady Hillary's quotables...

Voter fraud example #27

State Police raid Indy office in growing voter fraud case

Indiana State Police investigators on Tuesday searched a voter registration agency on Indianapolis' north side as they look into a voter fraud case that spans nine counties.

The organization at the center of the investigation is the Indiana Voter Registration Project. Patriot Majority, a liberal nonprofit funded the registration project.

The possible fraudulent information is a combination of fake names, addresses and dates of birth with real information.

In light of the investigation, police are urging voters to visit indianavoters.in.gov to confirm that they are properly registered.

If voters discover inaccurate information that indicates they could be a victim, they should contact their local voter registration office and the 24-hour Indiana State Police Voter Registration Application Fraud tip line at (888) 603-3147.

But, but, but there is NO such thing as voter fraud, Democrats are constantly telling us!

Hillary Clinton hardest hit...

Why is she not in prison (part 3)?

This post is a continuation of the previous (part 1 & part 2 posts)...

According to individuals "in the know" (Abedin, Cooper and REDACTED), Hillary had "personally-owned computer equipment in the SCIF at her residences in Whiteheaven and Chappaqua. Clinton stated to the FBI that she did not have a computer of any kind computer in the SCIFs in her residences. (pg 13)

According to Abedin and Clinton, Clinton did not use a computer, and she primarily used her BlackBerry or iPad for checking e-mails.

Investigation determined a limited number of individuals maintained direct e-mail contact with Clinton through her personal clintonemail.com e-mail account during her tenure at State. thirteen individuals, consisting of State senior level employees, work-related advisers, and State executive administrative staff, maintained direct e-mail contact with Clinton and individually e-mailed her between 100 and 1,000 times during her tenure. Abedin, Mills, and Sullivan, were most frequently in e-mail contact with Clinton and accounted for 68 percent of the e-mails sent directly to Clinton. In addition to sending Clinton messages they wrote, Abenin, Mills, and Sullivan reviewed e-mails they received from other State employees, USG contacts, and foreign government contacts, and if deemed appropriate they then forwarded the information to Clinton. Multiple State employees advised they considered e-mailing Abedin, Mills, and Sullivan the equivalent of e-mailing Clinton. (pg 13/14)

So all of these people knew she was using her own private e-mail account and server and said NOTHING. What is not stated here (and should have been) is that of the "limited number of individuals", recent news reports indicate that we can include in this "circle of friends" the one and only President Obama and that is why this became a "nothing burger". The FBI did not want to or was told to make this go away to shield the President from being implicated.

The FBI's investigation confirmed that Clinton's immediate staff used their personal e-mail accounts in combination with their State-provided OpenNet e-mail accounts for official State business. (pg 14)

So why were none of them charged as well?

FBI investigation and the State OIG report determined that State issued regular notices to staff during Clinton's tenure highlighting cybersecurity threats and advising that mobile devices must be configured to State security guidelines.

Clinton had direct e-mail contact with an e-mail address for President Barack Obama. If the REDACTED e-mails between Clinton and President Obama, REDACTED were sent and received REDACTED. None of these REDACTED e-mails were determined to contain classified information. Clinton told the FBI that she received no particular guidance as to how she should use President Obama's e-mail address, and the e-mails sent while Clinton was REDACTED.

So, the FBI does get to it and has proof that Clinton used President Obama's email address from her UNSECURE devices. Clinton also says that she was not given any guidance as to how/when to use his e-mail address. The woman is too stupid to be a dog-catcher let alone hold high office. After 8 years as first lady, time as a congressman and time as SOS she still claims to have no clue as to how to manage/handle security related / sensitive material? WTF!

To date, the FBI has recovered from additional data sources and reviewed approximately 17,448 unique work-related and personal e-mails from Clinton's tenure containing Clinton's hdr22@clintonemail.com e-mail address that were not provided by Williams & Connolly as part of Clinton's production to the FBI, including e-mails from January 23, 2009 through March 18, 2009. (pg 18/19)

The FBI identified three e-mail chains, encompassing eight individual e-mail exchanges to or from Clinton's personal e-mail accounts, which contained at least one paragraph marked "(C)," a marking ostensibly indicating the presence of information classified at the CONFIDENTIAL level. (pg 20)

How did these get onto Clinton's private email server? Who "moved" them over the air-gap?

When asked about the e-mail chain containing "(C)" portion markings that State determined to currently contain CONFIDENTIAL information, Clinton stated she did not know what the "(C)" meant at the beginning of the paragraphs and speculated it was referencing paragraphs marked in alphabetical order. (pg 20)


FBI and USIC classification reviews identified 81 e-mail chains containing approximately 193 individual e-mail exchanges that were classified from the CONFIDENTIAL to TOP SECRET levels at the time the e-mails were drafted on UNCLASSIFIED systems and sent to or from Clinton's personal server. (pg 20)

Done and done. There is more and it gets even worst but to this point, this is more than enough to send you or I to the Federal pen many times over. Why is she NOT in jail?

FYI: A Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF; pronounced "skiff") in United States military, security and intelligence parlance, is an enclosed area within a building that is used to process Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI) types of classified information.

Access to SCIFs is normally limited to those with clearance.[1] Non-cleared personnel in SCIF must be under constant oversight to prevent unauthorized access to classified material;[2] as part of this process, non-cleared personnel are typically required to surrender recording and other electronic devices.[3] All of the activity and conversation inside is presumed restricted from public disclosure.

Voter fraud example #26

He fought in World War II. He died in 2014. And he just registered to vote in Va.

The FBI and local police are investigating how at least 19 dead Virginians were recently re-registered to vote in this critical swing state.

The FBI and local police MUST BE LYING cause we are told repeatedly that voter fraud is a myth! We NEED to support same day registration, IDless voting, 30 day voting, "motor voter laws", honor system voting, etc. cause RACISM!

All of the forms had been submitted by a private group that was working to register voters on the campus of James Madison University, according to the Harrisonburg registrar’s office. The group was not identified. No charges have been filed.

Why was the "private group" not identified? Why have no charges been filed? Could it be that Democrats approve of and support this type of activity?

House Minority Leader David J. Toscano (D-Charlottesville) said the case was not proof of voter fraud because no one had actually managed to cast a vote in the names of the dead.

“First of all, there was no voter fraud — they caught him,” Toscano said. “Nobody cast a vote. . . . There’s still no evidence of that going on in the state. But there is evidence every time you turn around that the Republicans are trying to make it more difficult for citizens to vote in elections.”

They caught him? Him who? The dead guy?

So by dumb luck these 19 dead citizens were found out. That [in Toscano's mind] indicates that there is no voter fraud and no problem.

19 more dead people removed from voter rolls, Hillary Clinton hardest hit...

Logic bomb #2

a) Leonardo DiCaprio cares so much for the environment and believes that climate change "is real, it is happening right now".

b) Al Gore cares greatly about the environment. He has even said: "The warnings about global warming have been extremely clear for a long time. We are facing a global climate crisis. It is deepening. We are entering a period of consequences."

c) At least 190 nations care so much for climate change that representatives from those countries traveled to Paris, France in 2015 for a climate summit and UN talks.

If climate change is such a pressing problem that something "must be done RIGHT NOW regardless of the costs", why do all of these dignitaries and famous people travel all over the world promoting their cause? Have they not heard of Skype or Facetime?

If they care so much for the climate, why don't they act like they do?

One could almost be forgiven for thinking that maybe all of these climate folks care more about seeming to care about the climate than actually caring, no? This could be the case so as to enable them to get invited to all the right parties, enable them to feel sufficiently smug about themselves (cause they care you know), and / or (in the case of the former VP) make tons and tons of money off of other gullible folks and governments. It sure seems that those that cry loudest about the climate actually behave like it is no big deal. Or am I being too cynical?

Update (via Instapundit):

CHASER: Hillary Clinton Vows To Prosecute All Climate Change Deniers.

I’m sure even as we speak, Hillary is planning to dispatch an eco-SWAT team arrest her own daughter. But in the meantime, as Glenn likes to say, I’ll believe global warming is a crisis when the people who tell me it’s a crisis start to act like it’s a crisis themselves.

Earlier: As Americans Tire of Eco-Panic, Hillary Quietly Drops ‘Climate Change’ Rhetoric.

I’m sure it will resume being an even bigger crisis than terrorism come January though.

Voter fraud example #25

Washington Mall Terrorist Cetin Wasn’t U.S. Citizen, Still Voted Three Times

...Cetin was not a U.S. citizen, meaning legally he cannot vote. However, state records show Cetin registered to vote in 2014 and participated in three election cycles, including the May presidential primary.

Impossible! Democrats and liberals tell us constantly that voter fraud DOES NOT HAPPEN, PERIOD.

The Government's voting records MUST BE LYING!

...Washington state doesn’t require proof of citizenship. Therefore elections officials say the state’s elections system operates, more or less, under an honor system.

Another fraudulent voter stopped, Hillary Clinton hardest hit...

CBS4 Investigation Finds Dead Voters Casting Ballots In Colorado

How can this be? We are repeatedly told that voter fraud DOES NOT HAPPEN and anyone wishing to improve the integrity of the voting system is racist. Who would have thought that CBS4 in Colorado was so racist!

Following the CBS4 investigation, the Colorado Secretary of State’s office reviewed the CBS4 findings and confirmed at least 78 dead voters remained eligible to vote. Lynn Bartels, a spokesperson for the Secretary of State’s office, said county clerks were notified and told to immediately remove those 78 names from voter rolls. Bartels said “It’s not clear why” those dead citizens were still being listed as eligible voters.

More dead people removed from voter rolls in Colorado ensuring they will no longer be able to vote, Hillary Clinton hardest hit...

MacGyver reboot

So the "media" has decided that they are all out of decent original show ideas, all out of crappy original show ideas, all out of reasonable relaunches/reboots of old successful shows and have started picking at the corpses of old, bad show ideas.

In this case, they are planning a relaunch of MacGyver. I will admit that I used to watch MacGyver in the late 80s and found it enjoyable, until it wasn't. It was [generally] about a fellow that used his imagination and innovative skills to "make do" with whatever was laying round, to fix stuff, break stuff, solve problems, save lives, etc.

Maybe I was naive about the show's under-currents either due to my youth or my "innocence". At the time it never struck me as overly political. I stopped watching the series before it ended and I stopped watching rather abruptly. I still remember "the" episode that caused me to stop. As was typical for each episode in that MacGyver found himself and a couple of others "in harms way" and having to protect themselves from "bad guys".

One of the key elements of that show, for me, at the time was how he used the "stuff" he found in efficient ways to accomplish goals. Use the best tools you have to do the best you can and think outside of the box.

Well in this particular episode, MacGyver, some man and [I believe] a woman were being chased by bad guys with guns. The three or four "bad guys" had automatic weapons. They were in an industrial area. MacGyver confronts one of the "thugs" and manages to subdue him. The other two or three are "right around the corner" and closing fast. So what does the savvy and skilled MacGyer do? He picks up the unconscious thug's fully functional and loaded automatic weapon which is good and expected. Does MaGyver then take up a defensive position with his associates in order to engage the on-coming attackers? No. Does he try to make a controlled escape using suppressive fire? No. MacGyver, the MacGyver of "make efficient use of your tools" fame takes a perfectly fine, perfectly functional self-defense weapon and uses it as a fire-hydrant wench in order to pressurize a fire hose with which to attach two or three heavily armed assailants.

Are you FRIGGEN KIDDING ME! I actually yelled something similar to that at the television when he did that.

Pause for a moment...

Let us explore the feasibility of this action, shall we? I do not recall the make/model of the weapons that the thugs were using but they were smallish automatic weapons. AK-47s or Uzis or some such. Typical Hollywood automatic-weapons. With all the general knowledge that MacGyver demonstrated in every episode, he should have been familiar with the operation and characteristics [in general] of automatic weapons, even if only from a theoretical perspective. He should have known that the receiver of an automatic weapon is not so much of a high strength area such that the receiver could actually be used as a hydrant wrench. The main purpose of the receiver is to serve as control surfaces for and containment of the carrier/bolt group. The pressure from firing bullets is absorbed by the bolt face and the breach of the barrel. The bolt face has some number of "lugs" that lock into the breach face creating a high pressure container with only one [forward] exit. As a round is fired, hot gases propel the bullet down the barrel where some of the gas is vented rearward through a gas tube, providing thrust used to push the bolt rearward, causing the bolt-face to unlock from the breach, travel rearward, pull out the empty brass shell, and eject it, pick up a new round [if available], load it into the breach, and lock-up the bolt face into the breach so that the next round can be fired. Truth be told not all automatic weapons work this exact way but the general process is the same. The bolt face takes the brunt of the rearward pressure of fired rounds and the receiver helps hold it all together. Point being the receiver is a hollow metal box with at least one opening on the side (for spent shells to exit). It is generally not very thick or heavy. Not made of the "best" materials and it is laughable that an AK-47 or Usi or any other generally available automatic weapon receiver could be used as a hydrant wrench. To even suggest doing such a thing to anyone that is at all familiar with these items would result in ridicule. Typical wrenches are solid metal claws that securely fit the nuts they are sized for. Hydrant nuts are big, solid items that snugly fit on top of hydrants and are used to control valves for releasing high pressure water.

For a moment, let us ignore all of that and assume that these are "special" automatic weapons with especially strong and hard receivers that could, in a pinch be used as a hydrant wrench. To do that to a fully functional weapon as the first option, no hesitation, is simply ludicrous. As a fall-back option, after all of the bullets have been used, maybe. As your initial go to? Insane.

As expected, the misuse of the automatic weapon worked out for MacGyver and the fire hose subdued the remaining thugs. He "saved the day" and lost another viewer permanently due to his blatant political pandering.

I suspect that the reboot will be even more anti-gun with a great big extra helping of global warming clap-trap thrown in for good measure. I make this assessment based on the evolution of Hollywood since the late 80s to today. Thank you but no. I think I will pass...

P.S. As one of the commentators here at this actual (sort of) review of one of the initial episodes, mentions another show called Burn Notice, I really, really liked that show. For an industry that can produce Burn Notice or Elementary or even FireFly, why or why do you end those shows and produce crap like this?

Bad network show ideas, #1

Here is a bad network show idea, a Courtship of Eddie's Father reboot/relaunch except in this version Eddie's father is gay and as a result every episode is Eddie trying to setup his father with an available guy. Hijinks and hilarity ensue, cue laugh-track.

An alternate (for the more modern age) would have Eddie's father actually be his mother and [of course] she is gay. Same premise as above. Working title "Eddie's mom needs a wife".

Hillary campaign steals from "poor little old ladies"

Wells Fargo fraud department inundated with calls from low-income Clinton supporters reporting repeated unauthorized charge

Hillary Clinton’s campaign is stealing from her poorest supporters by purposefully and repeatedly overcharging them after they make what’s supposed to be a one-time small donation through her official campaign website, multiple sources tell the Observer.
One elderly Clinton donor, who has been a victim of this fraud scheme, has filed a complaint with her state’s attorney general and a representative from the office told her that they had forwarded her case to the Federal Election Commission.
“We don’t investigate fraudulent charges unless they are over $100,” the fraud specialist explained. “The Clinton campaign knows this, that’s why we don’t see any charges over the $100 amount, they’ll stop the charges just below $100. We’ll see her campaign overcharge donors by $20, $40 or $60 but never more than $100.”
The source said he’s apolitical but noted that the bank’s fraud department is yet to receive one call from a Donald Trump supporter claiming to have been overcharged by Trump’s campaign. “I’m only talking to you because what Hillary’s doing is so messed up, she’s stealing from her poorest supporters.”
Carol Mahre, an 81-year-old grandmother of seven from Minnesota, is one of the victims of Clinton’s campaign donor fraud scandal. In March, Mahre said she made a one-time $25 donation via Clinton’s official campaign website. However, when she received her U.S. Bank card statement, she noticed multiple $25 charges were made.

Apparently this is not a new "trick" for Hillary...

The New York Times reported in 2007 that Clinton’s first presidential campaign had to refund and subtract hundreds of thousands of dollars from its first-quarter total often because donors’ credit cards were charged twice. Additionally, it was reported that Clinton had to refund a stunning $2.8 million in donations, three times more than the $900K President Barack Obama’s campaign refunded.
A Clinton campaign worker named Kathy Callahan, who worked on Clinton’s presidential campaign in 2008, claimed in a blog post that Clinton fraudulently overcharged her by several thousand dollars. She wrote that she voluntarily left the campaign’s finance committee after she discovered $3,000 in unauthorized charges made by Clinton’s campaign to her Visa card. Callahan said the unauthorized charges caused $400 in overdraft and bank charges and put Callahan over the legal donor limit. Callahan said that after a month of “begging and pleading,” she wasn’t able to get her money back until she threatened to go to authorities. However, when she was finally refunded her money the Clinton campaign refused to compensate her for the $400 in overdraft and bank charges.

And it is not just campaign money...

In 2001, the Clintons were accused of attempting to steal items donated to the White House during Bill’s presidency as he exited office. There was $190,000 worth of gifts in question that the Clintons shipped to their then new estate in Chappaqua, New York. Multiple donors said that they had understood that the items they had donated during Clinton’s presidency were to stay in the White House as part of the 1993 White House redecoration project. Initially, the Clintons claimed that the items in question were given to them prior to President Clinton taking office; however, government records proved otherwise. Facing strong criticism, the Clintons decided to return several items including $28,500 in furnishings and they paid $86,000 for other gifts.

This is the person that President Three-Putt said was the most qualified person ever to be President. "There has never been a man or woman, not me, not Bill, nobody more qualified than Hillary Clinton to serve as President of the United States of America,"  He said "Hillary was in the room" when global crisis occur". What was she doing? Stealing pens?

I would not hold my breath to see any of this on the nightly MSM, would you?

DNC has ID-10-T problem

DNC finds out / realizes that their email server was hacked and has been penetrated so they change the access password (good) and email it to everyone using the very email system that was hacked (very bad).

You can't make up stuff like this. If you tried, you would be told it was too absurd to be true.

Hillary: over 47% of Trump supporters are "Basket of deplorables"

The other day, Hillary made the mistake of actually being honest...

you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? [Laughter/applause]. The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic — you name it.

If Hillary is forced to drop out of the race either before she takes office or just after (due to health or scandal) and Tim Kaine (her VP pick) takes over, it would not be much better:

Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) said Saturday his running mate Hillary Clinton doesn’t need to apologize for her “basket of deplorables” comment about supporters of Donald Trump.


"Hillary Clinton’s campaign defended the Democratic presidential nominee on Monday, following criticism of her comment that half of Donald Trump’s supporters are in a “basket of deplorables.”

So, that is what Hillary, Tim, and the DNC think of 25% of the country.

Because you are worried about taxes and the economy, unlike Hillary who became a multi-millionaire while working in civil service drawing a salary of just a couple hundred thousand a year, that means you need to "check your privilege".

Because you are worried about gangs and crime and don't have the luxury of an armed escort and guards with guns everywhere you go, you are racist.

Because you think that it would be a mistake to bring in thousands and thousands of foreigners that don't believe in the American values of freedom and our bill of rights, want to impose Shari law on the land, and can't be properly vetted to ensure that they are not terrorists, you are Islamophobic.

Because you feel that only women (i.e. no male genitalia) should be allowed in women's locker rooms and bathrooms, you are sexist.

Though I am still not a fan of Trump, his reply to Hillary was spot on and he should build the rest of his campaign on it:

I was . . . deeply shocked and alarmed this Friday to hear my opponent attack, slander, smear and demean these wonderful, amazing people who are supporting our campaign.

Our support comes from every part of America, and every walk of life. We have the support of cops and soldiers, carpenters and welders, the young and the old, and millions of working class families who just want a better future.

These were the people Hillary Clinton so viciously demonized. These were among the countless Americans that Hillary Clinton called deplorable, irredeemable and un-American. She called these patriotic men and women every vile name in the book – she called them racist, sexist, xenophobic, and Islamaphobic.

She called them a “basket of deplorables” in both a speech and an interview. She divides people into baskets as though they were objects, not human beings.


While Hillary Clinton lives a sequestered life behind gates and walls and guards, she mocks and demeans hardworking Americans who only want their own families to enjoy a fraction of the security enjoyed by our politicians.


To this day, she still won’t take accountability for her role in unleashing ISIS across the Middle East – or for putting Iran on the path to a nuclear weapon.

Hillary Clinton believes she is above the law, that she is above accountability, and that she is above each and every one of you.

Read the whole thing. This ad is a good start, he needs to continue.

I don't feel that there is a "great" option for President this year (and have felt that way for a good number of recent elections) and the argument could be made that Trump is not the "right man at the right time" but for all of his faults and flaws, he has one really great thing going for him, he is NOT Hillary Clinton and we already know what she has done to this country as First Lady and as SOS. I am not sure if we can afford to see what she would do as POTUS.

Why the news sucks, example #60183

Seriously, what sort of moron do news agencies hire these days that can manage to do their jobs so poorly but still hold on to their job? Is the pool of applicants so shallow that anyone will do?

This example comes from USAToday. The headline is: Teen who impregnates teacher gets $6M from district

The story is credited to Micheal Harthorne, Newser Staff. I believe that after reading this story (what there is of it) you will agree that the headline and initial paragraph are a "miscarriage of justice".

If you don't have time to read it, the gist is "a former student who impregnated a California high-school teacher received a $6 million settlement from the school district". The male student was 17 at the time that he was raped by his teacher and she wound up getting pregnant.  A more appropriate heading might have been "Known child rapist get pregnant by latest victim, school district settles with victim for $6M".

Why is it in these types of stories (female teacher/student sex) the news tries to mitigate what the teacher has done? Does anyone think that they would be so "understanding" if the sexes of those involved were reversed?

Though they did not draw attention to it, at least they include enough information for the reader to understand that this teacher is a repeat offender. Story doesn't say if she will lose her teaching license.

Won't you please just leave her alone?

Why oh why won't the DNC and Pres. Bill Clinton leave Hillary alone? Why must they continue to push her into running this long, exhausting campaign for the presidency? It has been clear to anyone that looks at the situation objectively that this is all become too much for Hillary.

Between trying to answer/address historic issues (emails, email server, Benghazi, the foundation, etc.) and trying to maintain a hectic campaign schedule, Hillary is simply exhausted. She is even too tired to hold regular press conferences.

She is still overcoming recent health issues; the concussion / brain injury she suffered a couple of years ago, that recent coughing incident while she was on stage, her passing out at the 9/11 ceremony and having to be carried into her van, and now we hear she might even have pneumonia.

It is all just too much. Hillary is clearly trying to be a real trooper here and not let the DNC or her family down but at some point, you have giving all you can and those around her should understand that she just doesn't have any more to give.

Can't we as a nation agree to just let her retire in peace?

And lets be honest, don't you think she looks tired?

Benghazi hearing emails

So, those worthless, no-story-here, move along Benghazi hearing were actually pre-arranged/coordinated some between Hillary's people and the Democratic chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to give that impression.

"We wired it that Menendez would provide an opportunity to address two topics we needed to debunk (her actions/whereabouts on 9/11 and these emails from Chris Stevens about moving locations)," Reines wrote on the email, which was obtained by Citizens United.

The new email is significant because Clinton repeatedly pointed to previous congressional inquiries into Benghazi — including the foreign relations committee hearing — in her attempts to delegitimize the House Select Committee on Benghazi's findings earlier this year.

So, like nearly everything Clinton, the fix was in before it even got started.

I guess for some that have no care for the rule of law, as a famous politician once said: "What difference, at this point, does it make?"

P.S. Don't you think she looks tired?

Why is she not in prison (part 2)?

This post is a continuation of the previous (part 1 post)...

A May 25, 2016 report issued by the State Office of Inspector general (OIG) stated that, during Clinton's tenure as Secretary of State, the State Foreign Affairs Manual (FAM) required day-to-day operations at State be conducted using an authorized information system. The OIG stated it found "no evidence" that Clinton sought approval to conduct State business via her personal e-mail account or private servers, despite her obligation to do so. (page 10)

So, it was "in writing" that Hillary needed to obtain approval to use her make-shift system which she did not do but [we are told] it was "just like" what Powell did. BS!

Investigation determined Clinton did not have a computer in her state office, which was located in a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) on the seventh floor of State headquarters, in an area often referred to as "Mahogany Row". State Diplomatic Security Service (DS) instructed Clinton that because her office was in a SCIF, the use of mobile devices in her office was prohibited. Interviews of three former DS agents revealed Clinton stored her personal BlackBerry in a desk drawer in DS "Post 1", which was located within the SCIF. According to Abedin, Clinton primarily used her personal blackberry or personal iPad for checking e-mails, and she left the SCIF to do so, often visiting State's eighth floor balcony. (page 12)

So Hillary took her personal devices (with an 'S' but she had to use her own BlackBerry cause she could not figure out how to use more than one device) into a secure area, didn't have a computer in her office, and would go out onto the balcony to check her email cause it was on a private server that she accessed using her private BlackBerry.

Clinton stated to the FBI that she requested a secure BlackBerry while at State after hearing President Obama had one, but she could not recall the reasons why State was unable to fulfill this request. (page 12-13)

I can answer that one! It was not fulfilled because State would not hook it up to Hillary's private e-mail server! And sorry but I really doubt she requested one because that would have also meant that she would have had to use the State email system instead of her private e-mail server.

The rest of that section discussed issues she was having because she could not check her e-mail from within SCIF and alternates were discussed but none were ever implemented. This also shows she knew she was operating outside of the lines. If the SCIF won't let her access her e-mail but everyone else can access theirs, she (Hillary) must have realized she was not the norm. If she didn't realize she was not doing e-mail in the normal way after all of that, she is too stupid to be President. If she did know then she is too crooked. Which is it? Dumb or criminal?

Investigation determined Clinton had access to a number of State-authorized secure means of telephonic communications in her residence and in her office at State. At the start of Clinton's tenure, State installed a SCIF and secure communications equipment, {redacted} in her residences in Washington, D.C. (Whitehaven residence) and Chappaqua. (page 13)

Again, State went through all of the trouble to provide her with proper equipment but she preferred to use her own devices and e-mail system [I think] to avoid FOIA exposure.

In addition to sending Clinton messages they wrote, Abedin, Mills, and Sullivan reviewed e-mails they received from other State employees, USG contacts, and foreign government contacts, and if deemed appropriate they then forwarded the information to Clinton. (page 13/14)

Still reading but this might be part of the answer to a question that has been bothering me about this entire thing. The State system is supposed to be "air gapped" such that you can't get there from here. If so, how did Clinton send and receive sensitive e-mails? Who moved them from the secure State network to the internet to send to Clinton? Was it these three? If so, why are they not in jail?

Why is Hillary not in jail?

More coming...

Why is she not in prison (part 1)?

In response to FBI requests for classification determinations in support of this investigation, US Intelligence Community (USIC) agencies determined that 81 e-mail chains, which FBI investigation determined were transmitted and stored on Clinton's UNCLASSIFIED personal server systems, contained classified information ranging from the CONFIDENTIAL to TOP SECRET/SPECIAL ACCESS PROGRAM levels at the time they were sent between 2009-2013.

USIC agencies determined that 68 of these e-mail chains remain classified.

In addition, the classification determination process administered by the US Department of State (State) in connection with Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) litigation identified approximately 2,000 additional e-mails currently classified CONFIDENTIAL and 1 e-mail classified SECRET, which FBI investigation determined were transmitted and stored on at least two of Clinton's personal server systems.

From page 2 of the just released FBI report.

So, not only did Hillary Clinton have confidential through top secret/special access program information on her PRIVATE, unsecured email system but that system was made up of at least three different servers over time.

Additionally, because the FBI was not given (granted?) access to all of the mobile devices and computer components associated with Clinton's personal e-mail system, the FBI can not say whether or not those systems were hacked.

There is this (also from page 2):

The FBI did find that hostile foreign actors successfully gained access to the personal e-mail accounts of individuals with whom Clinton was in regular contact and, in doing so, obtained e-mails sent to or received by Clinton on her personal account.

Also, it appears that Hillary used at least three different systems (over time) as her "e-mail server".

Apparently the last of the servers used was not encrypted to make it easier to trouble-shoot.

Out of the 8 (yes 8, not one as she said) different mobile devices that Clinton used during her tenure as Secretary of State, she and her lawyers were unable to locate ANY of them to turn over to the FBI per their request (pages 8 and 9 of the report). My guess is that (like the Whitewater billing records) they will turn up shortly after the statute of limitations.

I am just getting into this report so there are likely more "gems" to be found. Based on the above information, why is Hillary not in jail?
