HOW THE PROGRESSIVE SOCIALIST DEMOCRATS ARE DESTROYING AMERICA

There is no doubt in my mind that one of the primary agenda items of the progressive socialist democrats is to destroy that which makes America great – citizens who place being an American over being a hyphenated American. Whether by dilution with illegal aliens who adhere to their own language, customs, foods, and dilution with foreign immigrants who have radically different beliefs – including religious-based intolerance of anything other than their religion, the progressives are balkanizing America. Destroying America from within by creating competing constituencies that look to the progressive socialist democrats to redress their so-called grievances.

The progressives are attacking America from within by destroying our faith in all that is America …

DESTROY-CULTURE

Where are the politicians like Barack Obama and his cadre of socialists and communists with the guts to stand up and call bullshit when something is obviously wrong? And, what about the mainstream media that has bought in to this false and malicious narrative?

Remember the riots, looting, and burning in Charlotte, North Carolina over the story that racist police officers executed an unarmed black man? Did the media immediately point out that it was a black officer who shot the suspect? Did the media mention that the Police Chief is black? Did anyone condemn the rhetoric switch when the agitators and activists changed the story to ALL police, not just the officer pulling the trigger?

Look at the facts. While attempting to serve a warrant on an unrelated individual, officers noticed an individual sitting in his car, smoking what they believe to be marijuana and in possession of a handgun in plain sight. The man is ordered out of his vehicle and he exits with the handgun. Commanded loudly several times to drop the weapon, the man does something that makes the officers fearful and one shoots and kills the suspect. All, while a family member is recording the scene in a rather curious manner and shouting at the officers. The story put forth by family members was that the suspect had a book, not a gun … in fact didn’t even own a gun.  A handgun was recovered at the scene and the suspect had an ankle holster. The agitators and activists exploited their opportunity to cause chaos, confusion, and racial discord -- and Charlotte burned.

Where was Barack Obama when he should have been urging calm and to wait until the facts were developed by the investigation? Where were the majority of the black community leaders – almost progressive socialist democrats?

Then the facts start trickling out …

The suspect was not a peaceful family man as portrayed, but a violent felon in possession of a handgun. The family that insisted that the suspect did not have a gun and did not own a gun had a grievous lack of memory because last year the suspect’s wife took out a restraining order on the suspect. Part of the complaint alleged that “He hit my 8 year old in the head a total of three times with is [sic] fist….He kicked me and threaten [sic] to kill us last night with his gun. He said he is a ‘killer’ and we should know that.”  In the section of the complaint dealing with law enforcement, “Is there any reason that a law enforcement officer should consider the defendant a potential threat? (i.e., carries concealed weapons while drinking alcohol, has threatened officer, etc.)” the wife checked yes and wrote “He carries a 9mm black.” This was only one of multiple restraining orders. <Source>

The truth is that a violent convicted felon who beats children and carries a gun was not the narrative of the night by agitators, politicians, and the mainstream media who delighted in the coverage and audience ratings bump.

Here is United States Attorney General Loretta Lynch, the highest law enforcement officer in the nation and President Barack Obama’s surrogate …

[My comments in bracketed blue italics.]

Good afternoon, everyone.  Before we turn to today’s event, let me address the recent events in Charlotte, North Carolina. 

The recent death of Keith Lamont Scott in Charlotte is currently under local investigation. 

We are aware of the tragic events that resulted in his death, and the Department of Justice and FBI are currently monitoring the situation

[Why would the United States Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation monitor the situation unless they are operating under the presumption of racism or a civil rights violation. A tragedy would be if the officer was shot by a violent felon in possession of a handgun or if an innocent individual was accidently shot. You can bet that they were not looking for socialist and communist agitators and out-of-state provocateurs who appear to be aligned with the progressive socialist democrats.]

For the second day in a row, protests in response to the death of Keith Lamont Scott took place in Charlotte last night.  And for the second day in a row, the protests were marred by violence – this time leaving one person on life support and several injured – an awful reminder that violence only begets violence.

[There was no violence, only an appropriate action by duly authorized law enforcement. It was the outside agitators that provoked or instigated violence, thuggery, burglary, arson, assault, and mayhem.] 

The details of what happened last night are still under review by local authorities.  Today, the Department of Justice is sending four members of our Community Relations Service to Charlotte.  Our Office of Community Oriented Policing Services has offered technical assistance and support for crowd mediation to local police.  And the local FBI field office stands ready to assist local law enforcement as well.

[There is no reason to send members of a controversial team that always appears to find institutional racism and under the threat of a massive federal lawsuit coerces local law enforcement into joint policy-making regarding law enforcement agencies.]

To the people of the great state, the beautiful state, my home state of North Carolina: I know these are difficult times.  I know that the events of recent days are painfully unclear and call out for answers.  But I also know that the answer will not be found in the violence of recent days.  Let us all seek a peaceful way forward. 

I know that most of the demonstrators gathered to exercise their constitutional right to peaceful protest in order to raise issues and create change.  We need your voice.  We need your passion.  We need your commitment.  But I urge those responsible for the violence to stop.  You are drowning out the voices of commitment and change and ushering in more tragedy and grief in our communities.

[Lynch, the DOJ, and the FBI all know who the radical agitators are and could prosecute them because their actions occurred across state lines. But this is the last thing they want as they need to mobilize the black base of the progressive socialist democrats for the upcoming election.] 

The tragic incidents in Charlotte and in Tulsa, Oklahoma, earlier this week once again underscored the divisions that persist between law enforcement officers and communities of color. 

[Nothing like subtly encouraging the meme that law enforcement officers are targeting communities of color when these very same communities produce a disproportionate amount of crime, violence, and gun-related death and injury. And it is the progressive socialist democrats who want to give minorities a pass on their criminal activities and refuse to seriously apply the gun laws already on the books.]

One of my top priorities as Attorney General has been to do everything in my power to help heal those divides, and the Department of Justice will continue working tirelessly to protect the rights of all Americans; to give law enforcement the resources they need to do their jobs safely and fairly; to open dialogue and promote reconciliation; and to reduce violence of all kind in this country.

[And, you can keep your doctor, period! Another one of those lies from the Obama Administration. These are the people exacerbating and widening the racial divide for political purposes.]

But as we have seen in recent months, despite these efforts – and the efforts of many others across the country – we have come together with thoughts and prayers too many times for a victim of violence – civilians and law enforcement officers alike.  And too many times we have been pulled down the easy path of blame and accusation, rather than the harder path of empathy and understanding.  Let us choose that path.  Let us work together to ensure that all Americans have both a voice and value in this great country of ours.  I want to reaffirm my full commitment – and the full commitment of the Department of Justice – to advancing that effort.  To those exercising that most fundamental of our freedoms, we hear your voices and feel your pain.  To all of the law enforcement officers who continue to risk their lives day in and day out to keep us safe and protect those essential freedoms, I extend my deepest thanks.  

And finally, I urge all Americans to ask themselves what they can do to contribute to the more peaceful, the more perfect and the more just union that is our shared heritage, our mutual responsibility and our common goal. <Source>

Bottom line …

Black thugs are being lionized as martyrs when they are simply black thugs who have decided, for whatever reason, to violently threaten, challenge, or disobey law enforcement officers. Yes, there have been some tragic mistakes and the lack of training makes these mistakes more tragic. But to insist that the nation’s aw enforcement officers are institutional racists and are targeting the black community – the very community that requires protection from black thugs and criminals – is ludicrous.  

Perhaps the government agencies should consider watching the growing strength of black Muslim organizations and their paramilitary-like organization. Perhaps the government agencies should consider looking at socialist and communist agitators posing as community organizers. And, perhaps the government should stay out of local and state law enforcement without an active request by a governor or a clear case of wrongdoing after a full and complete investigation. And not one of those never-ending FBI-style investigations that amount to little more than obstruction of justice for government perpetrators.

I do know one important thing. THIS IS WHAT LIFE UNDER A HILLARY CLINTON ADMINISTRATION WILL LOOK LIKE – AND WE NEED TO STOP HILLARY CLINTON AT ALL COSTS.

We are so screwed.

HOLLYWOOD GOES HILLARY IN WILL & GRACE GAY-THEMED SPECIAL "FAUX" EPISODE

If you want to see how Hollywood uses its professional talent and great production values to influence both the culture and the elections, you need go no further than this faux “episode” of Will and Grace – filled with snarky gay humor and over-the-top stereotypes. Of course, it is all about urging a vote for Hillary Clinton to preserve gay rights for the nation. 

If the video is missing in the email version of this post, click here to access the video.

 

Ten years after the finale of "Will & Grace", the cast reunites for the first time ever to take on the 2016 Presidential Election in their own inimitable way.

Just another example of the subtle cultural indoctrination into the progressive socialist democrat worldview and further desensitization of issues that would have been thought unthinkable a few years ago -- like explaining to a small child how they can choose to be a little boy or girl or neither and have adults in the school system abide by those immature and unformed concepts.

Bottom line …

Disguised as humor, it is amazing to see that the Hollywood progressive socialist democrats totally and completely ignore the fact that Hillary Clinton , a corrupt, lying, cronyist, Marxist is totally unfit to assume the role of the President of the United States and Commander-in-Chief. But, then again, Hollywood typifies that type of greed, corruption, lying, perversion, and politics. Including, but not limited, to rewarding major failures with upward promotions.

Many a truth is said in jest, and what this obvious appeal to the “hip” crowd actually says is that these people are not what America looks like, nor does Hollywood represent the values of the working folks. Think about it – the days of patriotism, loving your country, John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart, Gary Cooper, and others have given way to freakish displays of the worst aspects of our country and culture.

We are so screwed if we allow Hillary Clinton to select the next Supreme Court Justices. America, as we know it, will become Soros-land – a third-rate European Socialist nation with the politics and practices of a banana republic.

Is this what you want?

WHAT CHANNELS WILL CARRY THE SECOND PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE BETWEEN DONALD TRUMP AND HILLARY CLINTON ON SUNDAY OCTOBER 9, 2016

wudx

The second Presidential debate will be broadcast live ON October 9, 2016 at 9:00 p.m. – 10:30 p.m. EDT (6:00 – 7:30 PDT) on C-SPAN, ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC, as well as all cable news channels including CNN, Fox News and MSNBC among others. The debate will be co-moderated by ABC News’ Chief Global Affairs Correspondent Martha Raddatz and CNN's Anderson Cooper, anchor of Anderson Cooper 360°.

Because NBC’s Lester Holt created a fair amount of controversy in his choice of questions and the lack of follow-up questions to a single candidate, Hillary Clinton, the Commission on Presidential Debates has created a new website PresidentialOpenQuestions.com where the public can submit questions. Both ABC and CNN have agreed to “consider” the top 30 questions for this town-hall style debate along with questions to be taken from the audience.

od-hdr

The broad topics, provided by co-moderators will be revealed on October 2, 2016.  Of course, the co-moderators reserves the right and privilege of altering the topics to fit current news of interest.

Audience participants will be uncommitted voters, selected by the Gallup Organization.

Commission on Presidential Debates Announces Format for 2016 General Election Debates

The nonpartisan, nonprofit Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) today announced the formats for the three presidential and one vice presidential general election debates it will sponsor this fall.

The formats for the 90-minute debates are designed to facilitate in-depth discussion of the leading issues facing the nation.

Second presidential debate (October 9, 2016, Washington University in St. Louis, St. Louis, MO)

The second presidential debate will take the form of a town meeting, in which half of the questions will be posed directly by citizen participants and the other half will be posed by the moderator based on topics of broad public interest as reflected in social media and other sources. The candidates will have two minutes to respond and there will be an additional minute for the moderator to facilitate further discussion. The town meeting participants will be uncommitted voters selected by the Gallup Organization.

All debates will be moderated by a single individual and will run from 9:00-10:30 p.m. Eastern Time without commercial breaks. As always, the moderators alone will select the questions to be asked, which are not known to the CPD or to the candidates. The moderators will have the ability both to extend the segments and to ensure that the candidates have equal speaking time. While the focus will properly be on the candidates, the moderator will regulate the conversation so that thoughtful and substantive exchanges occur. The CPD is in discussion with technology and civic groups that will provide data to the moderators to assist them in identifying the subjects that are most important to the public.

<Source>

Bottom line …

Essentially, this debate is between a Marxist policy wonk who is mired in scandal, lies with impunity, and who has sold out her office for personal gain – and a celebrity billionaire bully boy whose personal affairs are about as transparent as those of Hillary Clinton.  As they say, look for lies, damned lies, and statistics.

We are so screwed.

THE LOS ANGELES POLICE COMMISSION DOES NOT REPRESENT THE PEOPLE: IT REPRESENTS A PROGRESSIVE POLITICAL AGENDA …

Who are the Los Angeles Police Commissioners …

  • Matthew M. Johnson, President – Wealthy attorney and managing partner of Ziffren Brittenham LLP.

  • Steve Soboroff, Vice President – Wealthy real estate developer and one of the “downtown boys” who run Los Angeles politics. One of his “deleted” tweets illustrating a degree of progressivism, elitism, and racism.

soboroff_2

  • Sandra Figueroa-Villa, Commissioner – Radical community “social justice” activist

  • Kathleen Kim, Commissioner – Attorney/Educator specializing in immigration, workplace rights, and civil rights

  • Robert M. Saltzman, Commissioner – Attorney/Educator specializing in legal and professional ethics

All progressives, all politically connected, and representing an elite governing constituency that is more about the maintenance of political power than commonsense solutions that might find disfavor with their own political constituency.

It is almost unbelievable that the Los Angeles Police Commission, a politically appointed group, would not side with officers facing an existential threat and responding with an appropriate level of deadly force …

L.A. Police Commission Finds 3 Officers Out of Policy in Fatal Shootings

 

 

 

 

 

Three officers with the Los Angeles Police Department were found to have violated department policy in the shooting deaths of two people in 2015, the Los Angeles Police Commission concluded Tuesday afternoon. The commission, which is made up of civilians who oversee the LAPD, found that the officers acted out of department policy in the fatal shootings of James Byrd and Norma Guzman, KABC TV reports. Byrd, 46, was shot and killed on Oct. 3, 2015, after police said he threw a bottle at a police cruiser in Van Nuys, shattering the back window. Guzman, 37, was shot and killed by officers in South Los Angeles the morning of Sept. 27, 2015. LAPD stated Guzman was armed with an 8-inch serrated knife and refused to follow orders to drop it.  Source: L.A.

Police Commission tells officers to run away, or else

Run away. If a police officer is confronted by a suspect with a weapon, those entrusted to set policies for the Police Department believe officers should run away. That’s the recent finding from the Los Angeles Police Commission which has turned Monday morning quarterbacking into a weekly agenda item at the three-ring circus they preside over every Tuesday morning.

In the Commission’s most recent decision on an officer-involved shooting, in which a suspect charged at two officers swinging an 8 to 9-inch knife, they faulted the officer for not “redeploying” to “create distance.” In plain English: the officer didn’t run away.

The key facts in this case are not in dispute. A female suspect, armed with an 8 to 9-inch knife, charged at officers, repeatedly ignored commands to stop, and was recorded yelling “shoot me” as she swung her knife from side to side.

The armed suspect quickly closed the gap between her knife and the police officers from 70 feet to less than 5 feet in under 10 seconds. That is when the first officer discharged his service weapon. The second officer involved had only three seconds to respond to the imminent threat. Even the Commission stated that “It was reasonable for Officer C to believe, in the moment when the use of force occurred, that the subject would imminently assault him with the knife.”

So where’s the beef?

The officers didn’t run away. The Commission, armed with video and their own political agenda broke down the footage frame by frame to determine that in the course of seconds, the first officer whose “position initially provided Officer C with a position of tactical advantage” lost the advantage as the suspect charged him. They wrote, “this advantage rapidly diminished as the Subject continued her advance, leaving him with neither distance nor effective cover as the Subject approached the space between two parked vehicles by which Officer C was located.”

Suspect charging from the front. Vehicles on either side. Where do you “redeploy?” Run backwards. This is absurd and it’s dangerous. What happens if the officer loses his footing with a charging suspect? What happens if the suspect runs into a nearby home or store and confronts its occupants with her weapon? What if the suspect also had a concealed gun? What is created when an officer turns tail and runs away is a large target. It’s called a back. The officer would put their lives in further jeopardy by running away if the suspect had a gun. At this close range, running away would create a self-caused danger to the officers and the public.

Chief Beck, who has absolutely no problem finding fault with officers, agreed with these officers’ actions. The Commission, with a grand total of zero years of experience in law enforcement, overruled the Chief’s decision. ‘'

The Commissioners created an alternative set of facts that acknowledged that the officer was right to believe his life was in jeopardy but found fault with the officer shooting the knife-wielding suspect because the officer should have run away. Pathetic.

It sure must be easy to talk about “redeploying” an officer’s position while sipping a Diet Coke or bottled water while sitting in a police-guarded, air-conditioned room, in a cushy office chair, watching the events unfold in slow motion on a big-screen TV.

But that’s not reality. The Commission is becoming nothing more than a politically motivated rubber stamp for the warped worldview of a handful of activists that they pander to. In this instance, only Commissioner Steve Soboroff was willing to let facts and reason prevail.

The message the Los Angeles Police Commission is sending to officers confronted with a violent and dangerous suspect is clear: You can save your life or save your job, but you cannot do both. You choose.

Source: LAPPL - Los Angeles Police Protective League: Police Commission tells officers to run away, or else

Bottom line …

Yes, these people are citizens and have a right to express their opinion. But, when such an opinion is driven by political accommodations and lacks commonsense, these people become activists who do not deserve a place on the police commission or any other citizen’s panel.

This is why things are screwed up. The politicians appoint the special interests that fund and support them and the people be damned.

We are so screwed.

DEVELOPING YOUR OWN "AIRPLANE MODE"

 After watching yesterday's presidential debates, I pondered the idea of developing my own "airplane mode" to shut down all electronic devices to a period of time ...

Airplane mode is a setting available on many smartphones, portable computers, and other electronic devices that, when activated, suspends radio-frequency signal transmission by the device, thereby disabling Bluetooth, GPS, telephony, and WiFi.

Considering the performances of both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, it seems like a great idea.

WHO WON THE FIRST PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE: HILLARY CLINTON OR DONALD TRUMP? SEPTEMBER 26, 2016

No matter what anyone says about the debate, including the expectations expressed by the media pundits and partisan organizations, it was pretty much Trump being Trump, interrupting, challenging, and dissembling; and Clinton being Clinton using progressive rhetoric, jabbing where appropriate, and using fact and figures to demonstrate her knowledge.

Did anyone learn anything new? No! Did anything change? No!

  • Hillary demonstrated physical stamina – but so did the great actor Yul Brenner in his last performance of the “King and I,” and immediately offstage was given oxygen and led away in a wheelchair. Hillary Clinton’s health issues still remain unexplored. Donald Trump continuously drank water during the debate whereas Hillary Clinton avoided any appearance of weakness.
  • The greatest stalemate was Trump being challenged about his tax returns, and responded by challenging Clinton to produced her deleted emails.
  • Funny, Trump attacked Hillary on her temperament while clearly demonstrating an aggressive demeanor.
  • Hillary Clinton ended the debate with a sexist attack on Trump and Trump did not fire back with anything about her husband being a sexual predator and protecting him by attacking women viciously.
  • Donald Trump was visibly unprepared for tonight's debate and it showed in terms of missed opportunities to attack Clinton as well as being unable to artfully sidestep issue landmines which Clinton threw in his path. Typical Trump -- believing he is "smart enough" to simply "wing it." 
  • Some of the missed opportunities: Benghazi, Clinton Foundation, Pay-for-Play, Cybersecurity and securing her own email server, and Muslim immigration.

Nobody won the debate, but Americans lost – having to put up with these two seriously flawed candidates. Both spent more time talking about themselves and defending their actions rather than presenting a vision for America. Also, Trump was the ONLY one who walked through the "spin room" and spoke with reporters rather than simply putting surrogates out to tell your story.

Where Trump failed: Trump did not counter the birther charges by asking why President Obama's team spent millions in legal fees fending off any challenge that would have allowed a court-appointed grandmaster to examine the original documents and report back to the court. Including documents related to foreign travel and possible foreign scholarships. Likewise, he did not mention that Hillary Clinton had a history of personal and political scandals and apparently has been given a pass by law enforcement and the mainstream media. 

Where Hillary failed: Clinton could have asked Trump if he would release his tax returns if the IRS granted him immunity.

Moderator Lester Holt did not appear to be unbiased in his selection of questions or follow-ups. But he did not lose control of the debate.

 

HDR

What I am looking for in this debate is not snarky “gotcha” comments, but for the candidates to express a clear vision on how they are going to protect America and ALL Americans from both foreign and domestic threats, improve the overall economy and increase the number of available jobs.

I am looking for more than a simple vision statement, but some clue to a candidate’s ability to actually do what they say they are going to do. It would also be nice to learn that the government will be getting smaller, onerous rules and regulations will be eliminated, and spending will be curtailed.

There is little or no doubt that Hillary Clinton is a policy wonk with an intimate knowledge of governmental affairs, both foreign and domestic as well as the political debate skills learned over decades in politics. On the other hand, she is a corrupt liar, mired in cronyism and scandal; and this makes her vulnerable. It is a shame that she can not be drug tested at this point in time to determine what stimulants are being used to keep her stronger than she is in reality.

Donald Trump, on the other hand, is a master con artist whose bluffing skills and lack of concern for political correctness are well known.

While Hillary Clinton must render an unprecedented performance, Trump need merely look “presidential” while highlighting her numerous character flaws and abominable performance in compromising America’s safety and security; not to mention the destruction of the Middle East which has lead to the deaths and destructions of hundreds of thousands of innocents who wanted only to live in peace.

Against this background, we will judge the performance of both actors.

Bottom line …

More and more, the mainstream media is treating serious political issues in America as a spectator sport, a vehicle for entertainment that generates significant ratings and advertising profits for the media . As if our liberty and freedom were a spectator sport, complete with teams and broadcasts with color commentary rather than insightful analysis. Investing thousands of audience hours on the truly meaningless – as if the two candidates were reality show stars (ok – one candidate is a legitimate reality star) and the issues of our days were of absolutely no significance. Whether or not you are on “Team Clinton” or “Team Trump,” you better get aboard “Team America” before you finds yourself living in a corrupt plutocracy (government by the wealthy) in third-world conditions.

I am urging a vote for Donald Trump because the level of corruption, lying, and socialist destruction under a Hillary Clinton would simply be one more move toward the abyss of European-style socialism and the further decline of our nation. Put aside a politics, hold your nose if you must, but do the right thing – vote for Team America – and not for Hillary Clinton.

This debate was akin to throwing a grenade in a septic tank. We are so screwed.

MITCH McCONNELL: THE PROGRESSIVE ENEMY WITHIN THE SENATE

Amazingly, there is a powerful progressive ghost lurking in the corridors and crannies of the United States Senate. A ghost that claims to be either conservative or centrist as the issue may demand. A man who is openly reviled as being an obstructionist by the opposition – but supports those opposition positions more often than not. That man is Mitch McConnell from Kentucky. And, from all appearances, a RINO – Republican In Name Only.

mm

Have you ever wondered why government spending is out of control and always faced with last-minute budget crises and “must pass bills?” 

Not only did Mitch McConnell allow the Senate to vote on a bill that did not exist as part of their “artificially complex” rules …

Washington at Its Worst: Senate Passes Nonexistent Bill

On Tuesday night, the Senate voted to proceed to the continuing resolution, a bill that will allegedly fund the government until Dec. 9. The only problem is that there isn’t actually a bill yet. There is no text. There is no agreement between Democrats and Republicans on what the bill will fund—Planned Parenthood, the Export-Import Bank, control of the internet—all of it remains a mystery. Yet the Senate voted 89-7 to proceed to this nonexistent bill. <Source>

McConnell sold out conservative spending principles and set up a “dangerous” lame duck session of Congress where outgoing Senators are not responsible to their respective constituents …

Provisions of this horrible piece of legislature:

  • Funds the government for ONLY 69 days at the profligate and unchecked spending level set by former Speaker of the House John Boehner.
  • Produces another congressional crisis that results in a “must pass” spending bill or risk shutting down the government – although most of the government stays open and only thing that annoy citizens are shut down for political rather than operational purposes.
  • Enlarges the government by giving already well-funded agencies even more funding and permits the outgoing administration to hire more embedded bureaucrats to pursue a radical progressive socialist democrat agenda during the next administration. These are the entrenched opposition bureaucrats that administratively thwart, sabotage, or slow-walk the new administration’s reforms of a already broken and corrupt political system. Ever wonder why obvious wrongdoing by a previous administration is not investigated and punished – ask the embedded opposition in the regulatory agencies.
  • Does not address the internet turnover to a so-called “multi-stakeholder” community that includes sworn enemies of the United States.
  • Does nothing to stop the funding of Planned Parenthood or giving the nation’s largest provider of abortions new funding to deal with the Zika virus outbreak.

How they are selling this outrage …

Agreement Maintains Government Operations through Dec. 9, Provides Funding for Veterans, Zika Virus Fight, Disaster Recovery

WASHINGTON, D.C – The Senate Appropriations Committee today released a short-term continuing appropriations measure to maintain government operations through Dec. 9, 2016.

[Why is the leadership not being held accountable for the piss-poor planning that requires a “must pass” bill to fund ONLY 69 DAYS of government operations at am artificially high spending level? This is occurring repeatedly.]

The short-term continuing resolution (CR) package includes the FY2017 Military Construction and Veterans Affairs (MilCon-VA) Appropriations Bill and also provides $1.1 billion in supplemental funding to combat the Zika virus.  The bill also makes $500 million available to address immediate disaster recovery needs in Louisiana and other states.

[Here is $1.6 BILLION in non-urgent funds that should be left to the next Congress.]

“This continuing resolution will maintain government operations while we work toward completing the FY2017 appropriations process.  It will ensure stability for our men and women in uniform, continue important security and law enforcement programs, and respond to pressing issues such as Zika and disaster recovery.  I encourage its adoption,” said Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Thad Cochran (R-Miss.).

[This is bullpucky – all military, health, and emergency services continue to operate during a government shutdown and this is simply a procedural act.]

The CR maintains discretionary funding at a rate of $1.067 trillion and Overseas Contingency Operations funding at a rate of $74.096 billion.

The FY2017 MilCon-VA Appropriations Act will fund the Department of Veterans Affairs, military construction, and family housing priorities through the end of FY2017.  Enactment of this bill, which provides record funding for veterans, would mark the first time since 2009 that a regular appropriations bill has been signed into law before the end of the fiscal year.

The $1.1 billion in supplemental emergency funding will allow the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, U.S. Department of State, and the U.S. Agency for International Development to combat the Zika virus domestically and internationally.  This is the same amount approved by the Senate in May, and included in the conference report repeatedly filibustered by Senate Democrats.  The funding in the Zika supplemental is subject to Hyde Amendment restrictions.  The agreement does not include a provision that would have suspended duplicative EPA permitting requirements for mosquito control.

[How much of this money will be abused by the United Nations and other corrupt health organizations like Planned Parenthood?]

The package also provides $500 million in supplemental funding in response to severe flooding in Louisiana and other states.  These Community Development Block Grant funds will be available to meet immediate recovery needs.  The agreement to include disaster relief assistance for Louisiana was aided by the work of U.S. Senator Dr. Bill Cassidy, the only Louisiana delegation member serving on an appropriations committee.

[FEMA already has $12 BILLION so why are they getting another half-BILLION?]

The CR would also provide a higher rate of operations for the Department of Justice and the Department of Health and Human Services to begin implementation of the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA), and directs the Department of Veterans Affairs to implement that Act using FY2017 funds.

[This is the bill designed to fight opioid abuse by evildoers and will most likely result in opioid prescription costs going through the roof and people suffering from real pain being denied adequate medication to control their horrendous condition. It remains to be seen how much of this money will be funneled to progressive socialist democrat organizations for little more than “outreach” and educational activities – a potential reward for their dual-function of voter engagement on behalf of a single political party.]

A limited number of “anomalies,” which are programmatic or funding changes related to unique situations arising during the duration of the CR, are incorporated in the legislation.  Among them are additional funding and authorities related to the transition and inauguration of the incoming Presidential administration.

The legislation rescinds $400 million in funding and returns that funding to the federal treasury.

[These are bookkeeping entries and no real money is being transferred into the Treasury as it will be immediately re-purposed and sent elsewhere.]

Bottom line …

Once again, Mitch McConnell sells out his party and his nation on behalf of the progressive socialist democrats. And, no matter how much money is spent by this current administration, it will be peanuts if Hillary Clinton is elected to office and allowed to continue the dangerous foreign and domestic policies of Barack Obama. Perhaps “We the people” should just give her a few billion to stay home. It will be cheaper and safer in the long run.

DO NOT VOTE FOR HILLARY CLINTON, A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER TO AMERICA AND ALL AMERICANS.

SOMETHING STINKS AT THE FBI ...

comey-clouseau

First, we saw an inappropriate meeting between Bill Clinton, a potential co-conspirator involving the Clinton Foundation and the Department of State and the Attorney General of the United States, Loretta Lynch. With Lynch suddenly recusing herself from making a decision on whether or not to prosecute Hillary Clinton for a number of activities that appear to be felonies.

Second, we saw an impossible-to-believe brief FBI interview with Hillary Clinton, that was not recorded, and which appears to be filled with nonsensical or evasive answers. Some of which were different from her previous statements.

Third, we saw the Director of the FBI, James Comey, refuse to recommend the prosecution of Hillary Clinton, inserting the element of “intent” into the law, where no such element exists or has been used in past prosecutions.

Fourth, we say Hillary Clinton’s top aide, and possibly the architect of the cover-up, herself a potential co-conspirator, allowed unprecedented participation in Hillary Clinton’s FBI interview as a legal representative.

And now we find that this very potential co-conspirator, Cheryl Mills, was granted immunity along with other key players. Something stinks at the Department of Justice and the FBI.

Top Clinton aide Cheryl Mills gets immunity in FBI investigation of email server

Hillary Clinton’s former chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, and two other staff members were granted immunity deals in exchange for their cooperation in the now-closed FBI investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server as secretary of state, says a Republican congressman.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, told the Associated Press on Friday that Mills gave federal investigators access to her laptop on the condition that findings couldn’t be used against her. Chaffetz said he was “absolutely stunned” that the FBI would cut a deal with someone as close to the investigation as Mills. “No wonder they couldn’t prosecute a case,” Chaffetz said. “They were handing out immunity deals like candy.”

The FBI had already said it granted immunity to Bryan Pagliano, a tech expert who set up Clinton’s email server, as well as Paul Combetta, a computer specialist.

Chaffetz said in addition to Mills, others granted immunity include John Bentel, then-director of the State Department’s Office of Information Resources Management, and Clinton aide Heather Samuelson.

Unbelievable!

How is it possible for the FBI and the Department of Justice to investigate others in the future when it appears that Hillary Clinton and her crew have been given unprecedented liberties to engage in an “official” cover-up right in front of the FBI and an FBI Director who was thought by most people to be a straight shooter and immune to partisan politics?

Why is it that the FBI can swoop in and confiscate the computers of other wrongdoers with a court subpoena and then have to negotiate with Cheryl Mills for her computer. Especially when Mills has apparently claimed false attorney-client privileges where none appear to exist as she was a government employee when Hillary was at the State Department and was precluded from acting as an attorney on the behalf of Clinton in examining those matters and the subsequent destruction of documents when Clinton left office? Why was the claim that Cheryl Mills may have participated in the destruction or removal of official government documents prior to an investigation on Benghazi which would be a  event demonstrating her unsuitability for immunity.

Even worse …

In another story by the Washington Times, we are finding that Hillary Clinton’s statement that she turned over all work-related documents to the Department of State is materially false and misleading. And, that the government is trying to keep these documents out of the public view prior to a presidential election – which may be akin to interfering with a presidential election.

State Department reveals FBI uncovered 2,800 emails Clinton never turned over

The State Department said Friday it likely has more than 2,800 new emails former Secretary Hillary Clinton never turned over but were recovered by the FBI, and will begin releasing them in batches beginning next month. But only a small percentage will be processed before the election, the department said in court, arguing its resources are stretched too thin to get them done.

If some of these recovered were emails obtained from Cheryl Mill’s computer, under a grant of immunity, doesn’t this “prove” that Cheryl Mills, Hillary Clinton, and others at the Department of States are guilty of knowingly violating a court-issued subpoena and various subpoenas that may have been issued by Congressional oversight committees? If Hillary Clinton becomes the next President of the United States, will this produce a constitutional crisis in which a criminal has been elected to the highest office in the land and can administratively thwart justice at will?

Bottom line …

Unless FBI Director James Comey can adequately explain how this “slam dunk” investigation spun out of control before a Congressional oversight committee, perhaps he should resign his office or face an investigation that he was part of a conspiracy to obstruct justice in the Hillary Clinton cover-up. Can it be that Cheryl Mills is a better lawyer than all of the career lawyers in the Department of Justice and the FBI? Unlikely. But, it does appear that the “fix was in.”

It is likely that this entire crew might receive presidential pardons from President Obama on his way out of office.

How can Hillary Clinton be elected to the Presidency of the United States by Americans who can see what occurred right in front of their eyes? The only hope for America appears to be the unpalatable choice of electing Donald Trump who apparently is running like an old-time progressive democrat rather than a republican.

We are so screwed.

FOLLOW THE MONEY: OBAMA VETOES SAUDI ARABIA 9/11 RECOVERY BILL...

There is little doubt in my mind that the Bushes, the Clintons, and now President Obama have a strong connection to the Saudi Royal family which appears to manifest itself in donations to presidential libraries and foundations …

obsk-VETO

An interesting tale …

As President Obama prepares to veto legislation giving the families of 9/11 victims the right to sue Saudi Arabia for its complicity in the terror attacks, a prominent and devoted Clinton loyalist, Joe Conason, reveals in his new book that Bill Clinton worked to rehab the Saudi's damaged image several years after the attack.

The Saudis and Clinton were no strangers. The Kingdom originally donated between $10-25 million to the Clinton Foundation. And, over the years, the ruling family and leading Saudi billionaires added another $24-40 million.  So, the total is a staggering $34-65 million. And another $1.2 million paid to Clinton personally for speeches. 

It was in early 2004 that Bill Clinton quietly agreed to help the Saudi Arabian ruling family in their revolting attempts to rehab the Kingdom's besmirched image. Once considered a strong American ally, Saudi Arabia was widely condemned after shocking revelations about the role of Saudi nationals -- and perhaps the Saudi government, too -- in implementing and financing the 9/11 terror attack. The kingdom needed a new look, a new brand, a diversion from the 9/11 issues.  Read more here.

Bottom line …

There is no way America should allow Hillary Clinton to sell out the Presidency of the United States as she has apparently done with her position as Secretary of State. Hillary represents a clear and present danger to America with her lying, corruption, cronyism, and Marxism.

IT IS TIME TO REVOKE THE MILITANT BLACK RACE CARD PLAYED BY HILLARY CLINTON AND THE PROGRESSIVE SOCIALIST DEMOCRATS

fire1images

If you look closely enough, the progressive socialist democrat party is overtly and covertly colluding with socialist, communist, and anarchist agitators when they fail to enforce the very laws that form the basis of a civil society.

The idea that Blacks have some special privilege to engage in criminal activities such as rioting, assault, looting, arson, and the destruction of public and private property as a means of protest should be abhorrent to any decent law-abiding citizen of any class, color, race, ethnicity, or national origin.

And, yet the progressive socialist democrats are trying to disarm law-abiding Americans while ignoring the slaughter of thousands of blacks in the inner cities governed by those very same progressive socialist democrats.

It is time we held members of the Black community responsible for their actions just as it is time we held our elected representatives responsible for their actions. Especially the corrupt and racist Congressional Black Caucus whose Marxist members openly profit from deteriorating race relations in America to preserve their political power, profits, perks, and privileges.

Look at the facts …

In Ferguson, Missouri – a black thug, fresh from committing a criminal act, decided to viciously attack a police officer and was shot while wrestling the officer for his duty weapon while the officer was seated in his patrol vehicle. Disengaging, the thug move a short distance and then decided to, once again, attack the police officer, this time resulting in his death. The so-called co-conspirator in the previous crime was never charged and put forth a false narrative that the thug was shot will surrendering with his hands up. Thus began the false meme “hands up, don’t shoot” from militant Marxist agitators and activists. The police were ordered to stand down when thugs started rioting, looting, and burning the city.

In Baltimore, Ohio – a man died of injuries while in police custody. A racist prosecutor charged the police with unsubstantiated crimes and the city burned. City officials told the police to stand down and let the thugs have a safe place to rampage, loot, burn, and destroy public and private property.

In Charlotte, North Carolina – a man exits a vehicle with a handgun, fails to obey police commands, and is shot. The city burns over the false narrative that the police executed an innocent family man. It was a black officer, working for a black police chief, who shot the black “family man.”

So who is this friendly North Carolina family man who was so stupid as to exit his vehicle with a handgun in the presence of the police?

Previous charges -- 43-year Keith Lamont Scott

A public records search shows that Scott was convicted in April 2004 of a misdemeanor assault with a deadly weapon charge in Mecklenburg County. Other charges stemming from that date were dismissed: felony assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, and misdemeanors assault on a child under 12, assault on a female and communicating threats.

In April 2015 in Gaston County Court, Scott was found guilty of driving while intoxicated.

In 1992, Scott was charged in Charleston County, S.C., with ​several different crimes on different dates, including carrying ​a concealed weapon​ (not a gun), simple assault and contributing to ​the delinquency of a minor. ​He pleaded guilty to ​all charges.

Scott also was charged with aggravated assault in 1992​ and assault with intent to kill in 1995. Both charges were reduced, but the disposition of the case​s​ is unclear.

According to Bexar County, Texas, records, Scott was sentenced in March 2005 to 15 months in a state jail for evading arrest. In July of that year, records show, he was sentenced to seven years in prison on a conviction of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. A Texas Department of Criminal Justice spokesman said Scott completed his sentence and was released from prison in 2011.  Source: Charlotte police protests: Governor declares state of emergency as violence erupts for second night | The Charlotte Observer

And, why are the police openly allowing black thugs and others to run amok, causing death, injury, property damage, and setting a pattern for the next civil insurrection. These are not peaceful protesters interested in the civil society and the rule of law. Many are mindless thugs whipped into a frenzy by outside agitators and activists who are trying to mobilize the black political base for the upcoming election.

A few words from a true conservative ...

"We must reject the idea that every time a law is broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions." -- Ronald Reagan

Bottom line …

Who among you refuses to obey the lawful orders of a police officer? Who among you will openly display a handgun or make furtive movements when confronted by an officer of the law? Who among you decided that they would rather run from a police officer than submit to lawful authority and then engage the law with an attorney present? This is not to say that there are not badge-heavy bullying officers or that some officers are not racist – but it is relatively uncommon and not nearly the situation portrayed by the progressive socialist democrats and their media shills.

President Obama and his cadre of socialists and communists have set race relations back decades with his attempts to racially inflame Americans and secure political power. And, it appears that Hillary Clinton will also pursue this very same “divide and conquer” strategy to gain the black vote. But look at the facts. Thousands of blacks have been killed by other blacks in the inner cities governed by progressive socialist democrats with little or no response by the governing class. Blacks are only useful when it comes to votes and justifying ever-larger entitlement spending. Why are these people not rioting over the slum-conditions caused by the diversion of public funds into the pockets of the special interests? Why are these people not rioting when their schools are cesspools and producing yet another class of functional illiterates – all while under the supervision of the progressive socialist democrat unions? Where is all that educational money going, certainly not into the classroom, but the pockets of those who manage the larger pensions and healthcare systems.

We cannot afford to allow a corrupt, lying, crook like Hillary Clinton to assume the presidency where she will replicate the failed socialist policies of a dead and dying Europe. And, blacks cannot continue to vote for the very party that is overseeing their destruction – first by democrat policies of slavery, segregation, Jim Crow, and then by inner cities deaths and continued disease, poverty, crime, and illiteracy.

You must vote for Donald Trump – not because he is the best man for the job – but because it is the only way to stop the destruction of our country under Hillary Clinton.

\We are so screwed.
