Marine Spends 214 Days In Mexican Prison… Then Gets Paper With Donald Trump’s Signature On It

Remember Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, the former Mexican prison inmate who spent 214 days in custody after accidentally crossing the border into Mexico with several legal firearms in his possession?

Though President Barack Obama made zero efforts to aid Tahmooressi, who eventually earned his release due in large part to the work of several noted congressional members, the same cannot be said about current GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump.

According to Fox News, only days after Tahmooressi finally made it back home in November of 2014, billionaire candidate Donald Trump decided to bless the beleaguered Marine with a $25,000 check.
“I really want this money to go to him, not his lawyers,” he said at the time.
The front-runner reportedly felt inspired to take action after he observed Tahmooressi speaking with Fox News host Greta Van Susteren about all that he had endured as a captive of the Mexican government — and about how hopeless he had sometimes felt.
“I kept on thinking it’s going to be this month,” he said. “It’s going to be really soon. It’s going to come really soon. I kept on getting my hopes up, you know, and it just kept on dragging on and dragging on.”

That Trump forked over some of his own money to help Tahmooressi rebuild his life spoke volumes about his kind heart and charitable spirit.

It also inadvertently highlighted one of the fundamental differences between him and our current president: Unlike Obama, Trump actually cares about our military. Instead of just giving lip service to his support, he put his money where his mouth is and demonstrated via his actions that the concern he feels is real.
A lot of people talk a big game, but Trump did an awful lot more than that for Sgt. Tahmooressi.

If Trump Can Turn Black Voters, the Democrats Are Finished

Trump Stops Ford in its Tracks.

For months, Donald Trump has called out American companies moving across the U.S.-Mexico border and taking American jobs with him.

When the Ford Motor Co. decided to move jobs south to Mexico so that it could pay its workers less, billionaire businessman Donald Trump was furious. He made trade inequalities and Ford’s betrayal of American workers a central issue of his campaign.

And, without his even being in the Oval Office, it worked.

In an interview with CNBC, Ford CEO Mark Fields said that the automaker would be “here to stay.” He also said he had outlined his company’s plans in a letter to Trump.
While he didn’t offer specifics about whether Ford would be rolling back it’s $2.5 billion expansion of the company’s operations in Mexico, it was clear that Fields was committed to addressing Trump’s complaints directly.

“Ford Motor Co. is here to stay in the United States,” Fields said.

“We’re very proud as a company of what we do in terms of contributing to economic development here in the U.S.,” he added.
“We invested over $10 billion since 2011 at our facilities. We hired 25,000 people with plans to hire another 8,500 folks. It’s important for us to be successful in our home market and we love what we do for the economy.”
Ford’s expansion in Mexico had infuriated Trump, who had said he would call Fields and give him a message.

“Let me give you the bad news,” Trump said of his hypothetical conversation with Fields. “Every car, and every truck and every part manufactured in this plant that comes across the border, we’re going to charge you a 35 percent tax. OK? And that tax is going to be paid simultaneously with the transaction, and that’s it.”
Trump was also critical of another company that was moving jobs across the border, air conditioner manufacturer Carrier.

Trump’s rebuke — along with a viral video showing the reaction of Carrier employees in Indianapolis reacting to the news of the U.S. plant closures — helped make Carrier one of the most reviled faces of outsourcing.
However, thanks to Trump, at least one CEO is on the defensive and backing off somewhat. Just imagine how hard they’d be backpedaling were Trump actually the president.

American Pravda and New York’s Sixth Crime Family

In America today most people choose only the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media based on the charisma of the news reader, and do not tune into other news options.  Do they think they look or sound like authoritative?  Are they better looking?  Do they have a more pleasing voice?  Are they a Male?  Are they a female? Are they Gay? Are we not sure?  Whatever the reason, it isn’t because they say anything different.  It often sounds like they all have the same writers and story selectors.  The content is no different. It is perhaps the line-up of the stories and that is about it.

Do you want to hear the story about how the Republican Elite is trying to figure out some way to dump Trump before you hear the story about how the Donald is not fit for the highest office in the land or after?  Do you want to learn about the latest polls that show the race is already over before or after you hear how much better Hillary’s economic plan is than the insane proposals of the racist homophobe misogynist Trump?

When I have a chance encounter and what passes for conversation with so many Kool-Aid drinking low information voters i.e progressive induhviduals the conversation usually goes like this:

Me: What do you think about _______ (fill in the blank)?

Progressive Induhvidual: Repeat what ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today, Chicago Tribune, etc. has said recently.

Or if they are a Conservative Induhvidual: Repeat what Fox, the Wall Street Journal, the Weekly Standard, National Review, etc. has recently said.

It is almost impossible to find anyone who has actually read any books on topics of importance such as economics, politics, sociology, or the History that ties them all together.

Several times a year I attend meetings that are filled with nothing but PhDs, professors, and university administrators.  All content experts in these very subjects as well as many others.  The results are basically the same.  The death of critical thinking has led us to a deafening silence in the area of actual personal opinion, a dearth of dialogue, and a collapse of conversation.  The American people, who at the time of the Founding saw blacksmiths discussing with candle makers the pros and cons of constitutions and the meaning of liberty or carpenters debating with plumbers the need for a free economy versus the need for public works.  Just read the Federalist and the Anti-Federalist Papers, look at the level of thought and speech and ask yourself, “How does the public debate, and the newspaper articles of contemporary America match up?”  Today the public debate takes place at about a 3rd grade level compared to the graduate school of those earlier days.

What happened?  Back then there weren’t public schools.  Churches and families educated their own.  Today after generations of highly funded and severely structured public education we have successfully dumbed ourselves down to the lowest common denominator.

Looking at the Bernie Sanders revolt which was contained by the elite in the Democrat Party and the Trump Revolution which over whelmed the elite in the Republican Party it is obvious that we tax paying entities that inhabit flyover country have had enough of the bi-coastal elite that is driving us over the cliff into the third world.  Obviously the elite controlled media has dropped their camouflage of objectivity and is all in to make sure their empty pantsuit carries the day so she can carry the water for the donor class all the way to the bank.

At least there has been one pseudo surprise in the Hollywood scripted replay of Primary Colors the Distaff Edition, all of the frothing at the mouth Bernie supporters who were so brave to boo or turn their backs at the recent Democrat Party Spectacle in Philadelphia are falling into line and surprise surprise they are planning to vote for Hillary.  Just as evidence surfaces that yes, the entire primary exercise was rigged from the beginning they are going to stand in line to cast their rationally considered and highly principled vote for the very person who engineered the fix, takes her money and marching orders from the crony capitalists, and is arguably the most corrupt person to ever run for the presidency.  Who could have seen this coming except a blind man in a dark room with no media access?

The pre-programmed electorate combined with the usual fraud, imported voters and all the dead people who never leave the voting rolls of the corrupt Democrat City fiefdoms, will march in lockstep to the polls to hand America lock-stock-and-barrel to the Clinton Crime Family.  Our only hope is that enough people have swallowed the red pill and are willing to at least take a shot at shaking things up before we are swept away by the unregulated immigration invasion and state sponsored outsourcing.

An old saying goes, “There are only two things that are certain in this life, death and taxes.”  We have all been programmed to accept this as an inevitable truism.  Death to be sure is natural and inevitable.  If you were born you will die.  Taxes however are not a natural thing.  They are in actuality the forced expropriation of funds from the productive taken through the use of the state’s monopoly on the use of coercive force.  And so though they are not natural and they are not inevitable like death or gravity they may in realistic terms given the overwhelming preponderance of government power be unavoidable.

If our country follows the dictates of the elite controlled media America becomes the turf of the Sleazy Donna from Chappaqua whose word parsing motto should be the Bart Simpson anthem, “I didn’t do it! Nobody saw me do it! There’s no way. You can’t prove anything.”  If the White House once again becomes Bill’s love nest and the George Soros puppet in heels moves into the Oval Office with her rolodex of contributors both foreign and domestic let’s hope we don’t find something else becoming inevitable. Such as critics of the regime joining the ever growing list of questionable deaths that follows New York’s Sixth Crime Family around like a bad odor.

Don’t just opt out because the system is obviously going to hell in a handbasket, vote for a change or shall we say, “See you in the camps”?

America First!

I was raised by people who believed in “My country right or wrong.”  I was taught that America never started a war and never lost a war.  Reading Burry My Heart at Wounded Knee and an honest appraisal of the War of 1812 disabused me of those two notions.  While the jingoist attitude of blind acceptance and unreflective loyalty and unquestioning support for a sacred homeland are not descriptive of my life I am devoted to the enlightenment ideas enshrined in the Constitution.

I am a vocal proponent of the nation founded on the proposition that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.  I am a proud supporter of the federal republic founded in order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.

I am an avowed non-interventionist capitalist who believes passionately in individual liberty, personal freedom, and economic opportunity.  I was a Republican all my life, working my first campaign ringing door bells for Nixon in 1960, supporting Goldwater, Reagan for Governor and then for president in 1976, 1980, and 84.

George H.W. Bush with his compassionate conservatism and new world order turned me off.  Bob “It’s my Turn” Dole discouraged me and after the Contract with America Congress veered off the rails and started pushing bigger government and crony capitalism I quit the party and became an independent.  George the Second pushed me over the edge.  I could no longer consider myself a Conservative because there was nothing left to conserve, so I began to style myself as a radical who believes in a return to limited government, individual liberty, personal freedom, and economic opportunity.

The Clinton interlude between the Bush bookends and the Obamanation I have viewed as akin to the Vichy regime in France during WW II.  They were and are mere figureheads for the multinational corporations and international organizations to which they surrendered our independence doing their best to institutionalize the Corporate State.

I have long believed and advocated for the following policies.

Moratoriums on all immigration until those who are already here are assimilated.   Initiate policies which will induce those who are here illegally to self-deport.  These policies would include a cut off of public assistance and an E-verify law with teeth meaning significant fines for people who employ illegals and incarceration for those who have multiple offenses.   In foreign policy, resigning as the policeman of the world by ending our far-flung system of bases in more than a hundred countries, leaving Europe and Korea to defend themselves, bringing our troops home, securing the border and our defenses with the strongest military in the world and stop intervening in places that are not in our national interest.

Yes, I know that these proposals will be called racist, xenophobic and anti-American by the open borders clique; however, to quote Ronaldus Magnus, “A nation that cannot control its borders is not a nation.”  They will also be opposed by the neo-con hawks as isolationist.  I stand with Ron Paul when he says, “The Founders and all the early presidents argued the case for non-intervention overseas, with the precise goals of avoiding entangling alliances and not involving our people in foreign wars unrelated to our security.”

Yes, I know tariffs will make prices rise for many goods.  However, I also know that we need to rebuild our industrial base if we are to remain an independent nation capable of providing jobs for our people that support a middleclass lifestyle and a nation that can provide for its own defense.

Yes, I know that a non-interventionist resignation from being the policeman of the world is portrayed as a retreat and as abdicating our leadership of the world.  I call it jettisoning the empire to save the republic.

These positions have been heretical within the globalist interventionist neo-con Republican Party of Bush, McCain, Krauthammer, and the National Review.  However, today is a new day and perhaps there is a chance to right the Ship of State and resurrect the greatest experiment in human freedom in History before we plunge into the dustbin of History as another centralized collectivist utopia that will inevitably end up a dystopian nightmare.

Now we face a choice of historic proportions.  Do we want Hillary “The Nail in Our Coffin” Clinton to complete the transfer of American sovereignty to international globalist cabals such as the WTO and the UN?  Or are we willing to vote for the first candidate since Reagan with the courage to even say, “America First”?

I am still an independent.  I will not rejoin the Republican Party unless and until it has been purged of its globalist leadership.  However, I have waited my entire life to hear a politician say what The Donald said in his speech of June 28, 2016 “Declaring America’s Economic Independence.”  In this speech he outlines a program I can endorse 100%.

Mr. Trump said in that speech,

This wave of globalization has wiped out our middle class.

It doesn’t have to be this way. We can turn it all around – and we can turn it around fast.

But if we’re going to deliver real change, we’re going to have to reject the campaign of fear and intimidation being pushed by powerful corporations, media elites, and political dynasties.

The people who rigged the system for their benefit will do anything – and say anything – to keep things exactly as they are.

The people who rigged the system are supporting Hillary Clinton because they know as long as she is in charge nothing will ever change.

The inner cities will remain poor.

The factories will remain closed.

The borders will remain open.

The special interests will remain firmly in control.

Hillary Clinton and her friends in global finance want to scare America into thinking small – and they want to scare the American people out of voting for a better future.

My campaign has the opposite message.

I want you to imagine how much better your life can be if we start believing in America again.

I want you to imagine how much better our future can be if we declare independence from the elites who’ve led us to one financial and foreign policy disaster one after another.

This is the message I have been waiting for all my life.  This message is clear and direct.  Trump often speaks off the top of his head.  He speaks his mind and often says things which offend the politically correct media and by extension those who slavishly believe and follow the Progressive’s multi-mouthed Pravda.  However this speech was scripted.  He used a teleprompter to deliver it and its text has been released as an official campaign document.

I know that in the divided America of the 21st century many who have followed the History of the Future for years will be angry with what I have to say next. Some may be surprised and some may be disappointed.  However I have to do what I believe is the best for my country.  Therefore, I have decided to endorse and support Donald Trump.  Some may say you can’t believe what he says.  A man I greatly respect says, “All politicians lie.  The good ones do it convincingly.”  That may be true.

Just as Eve did not sin because she believed the serpent and just as if you donate to a charity that you honestly believe will do good and they waste the money that is not your responsibility that is on them.  I believe Donald Trump.  I believe he honestly wants to make America great again, and I am 100% for that.

While I encourage everyone to read the entire speech or listen to it on YouTube and it is too long to include verbatim in this article I want to end by sharing his trade program for rebuilding America.

A Trump Administration will change our failed trade policy – quickly

Here are 7 steps I would pursue right away to bring back our jobs.

One: I am going to withdraw the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which has not yet been ratified.

Two: I’m going to appoint the toughest and smartest trade negotiators to fight on behalf of American workers.

Three: I’m going to direct the Secretary of Commerce to identify every violation of trade agreements a foreign country is currently using to harm our workers. I will then direct all appropriate agencies to use every tool under American and international law to end these abuses.

Four: I’m going tell our NAFTA partners that I intend to immediately renegotiate the terms of that agreement to get a better deal for our workers. And I don’t mean just a little bit better, I mean a lot better. If they do not agree to a renegotiation, then I will submit notice under Article 2205 of the NAFTA agreement that America intends to withdraw from the deal.

Five: I am going to instruct my Treasury Secretary to label China a currency manipulator. Any country that devalues their currency in order to take advantage of the United States will be met with sharply

Six: I am going to instruct the U.S. Trade Representative to bring trade cases against China, both in this country and at the WTO. China’s unfair subsidy behavior is prohibited by the terms of its entrance to the WTO, and I intend to enforce those rules.

Seven: If China does not stop its illegal activities, including its theft of American trade secrets, I will use every lawful presidential power to remedy trade disputes, including the application of tariffs consistent with Section 201 and 301 of the Trade Act of 1974 and Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962.

President Reagan deployed similar trade measures when motorcycle and semiconductor imports threatened U.S. industry. His tariff on Japanese motorcycles was 45% and his tariff to shield America’s semiconductor industry was 100%.

Hillary Clinton, and her campaign of fear, will try to spread the lie that these actions will start a trade war. She has it completely backwards.

Hillary Clinton unleashed a trade war against the American worker when she supported one terrible trade deal after another – from NAFTA to China to South Korea.

A Trump Administration will end that war by getting a fair deal for the American people.

The era of economic surrender will finally be over.

A new era of prosperity will finally begin.

America will be independent once more.

Under a Trump Presidency, the American worker will finally have a President who will protect them and fight for them.

We will stand up to trade cheating anywhere and everywhere it threatens an American job.

We will make America the best place in the world to start a business, hire workers, and open a factory.

This includes massive tax reform to lift the crushing burdens on American workers and businesses.

We will also get rid of wasteful rules and regulations which are destroying our job creation capacity.

Many people think that these regulations are an even greater impediment than the fact that we are one of the highest taxed nations in the world.

We are also going to fully capture America’s tremendous energy capacity. This will create vast profits for our workers and begin reducing our deficit. Hillary Clinton wants to shut down energy production and shut down the mines.

A Trump Administration will also ensure that we start using American steel for American infrastructure.

Just like the American steel from Pennsylvania that built the Empire State building.

It will be American steel that will fortify American’s crumbling bridges.

It will be American steel that sends our skyscrapers soaring into the sky.

It will be American steel that rebuilds our inner cities.

It will be American hands that remake this country, and it will be American energy – mined from American resources – that powers this country.

It will be American workers who are hired to do the job.

We are going to put American-produced steel back into the backbone of our country. This alone will create massive numbers of jobs.

On trade, on immigration, on foreign policy, we are going to put America First again.

We are going to make America wealthy again.

We are going to reject Hillary Clinton’s politics of fear, futility, and incompetence.

We are going to embrace the possibilities of change.

It is time to believe in the future.

It is time to believe in each other.

It is time to Believe In America.

This Is How We Are Going To Make America Great Again – For All Americans.

We Are Going To Make America Great Again For Everyone – Greater Than Ever Before.

I don’t know about anyone else but that is a program I can believe in and one that I believe will lead to a rebirth of the American economy.

Hopefully I won’t end up living out the words spoken by a character in a book I wrote many years ago who when asked why he supported a disreputable candidate running for president who was a plain-speaking non-politician and the richest man in the world said, “I know he’s a liar but I like what he says.”

So far I like what he says.

Bitter Clingers Hang On

Trump Makes Sense on Energy

From the mouth of The Donald comes wisdom on America’s climate dissonance.
by Holman W. Jenkins, JR June 1st Wall Street Journal
BN-OG230_bw0601_J_20160531101557
From the mouth of The Donald comes wisdom on America’s climate dissonance.
After delivering an energy-policy speech in Bismarck, N.D.,

Political markets are weird: They cry out for something and yet politicians, with their enslavement to conventional wisdom and careerist caution, are unwilling to supply it.

Then along comes Donald Trump.
Mr. Trump, in his set-piece energy speech on Thursday, did something that might outlast his presidential hopes. In his anti-intellectual way, he made an intellectual contribution. For decades, poorly justified scientific fears of future warming have hovered as an incubus over U.S. energy development. These fears, you’ll notice, have not actually blocked much of anything: Fracking happened. The U.S. continues to export coal to China. But these fears fill America’s leadership class with guilt and cognitive dissonance.

Give Mr. Trump credit for trying to break the spell.

In a speech the media has done its best to ignore or debunk, he said, “From an environmental standpoint, my priorities are very simple: clean air and clean water.” With these words, he relegated back to the land of abstraction the abstraction known as climate change.

His was a model political speech, one that Hillary Clinton might learn from. It set an agenda, with a minimum of windy rationalization, that voters can assess. Mr. Trump, as all politicians do, offered a prayer to the false deity of energy independence but he also offered a perfectly serviceable vision of Americans freely competing in global energy markets based on our own natural and (note) renewable resources and technology.

Mr. Trump hit the climate moment squarely.

By now, it should be obvious that a succession of “fraudulent” (to borrow a word used by out-of-school climate activist James Hansen) agreements like Kyoto, Copenhagen and Paris are not paving the way for a non-fraudulent agreement to impose costly climate actions the public would never support.

The climate policy that actually gets enacted by now has a track record: It consists of ludicrous gestures and policies of cost-without-benefit like Tesla subsidies, whose driving force is the desire of influential pre-Trumpian elites for handouts.

As for the $100 billion spent on climate research, it has yielded one certainty: A human impact is hard to disentangle from a welter of natural variables.

What’s more, science can’t deny its nature forever. New information, based on actually measuring and understanding things like temperatures, emissions and cloud formation, is increasingly rewriting our hazy understanding of atmospheric processes. This data suggests our computer models have overstated the warming risk.

Also ripe to be revisited are the “business as usual” scenarios presumed by the climate alarmists, in which patterns of energy production and consumption don’t change in the absence of heroic government central planning efforts.

The emergence of fracking, which has played the major role in upending the U.S. coal industry, was not the product of climate policy.

The rise of the lithium-ion battery and explosion of battery-powered devices in our lives, of which even Tesla is but a flamboyant and overrated derivative, was not the product of climate policy.

Climate movement types, meanwhile, have increasingly turned to vilifying nonbelievers as a substitute for dealing sensibly with a possible human impact on climate. A minority movement is on its way to becoming a cult, increasingly anti-science. Know them by their talk of “saving” the planet: Even under the worst scenarios, global warming does not endanger the planet. It poses an inconvenience to human communities that have become accustomed to stacking their wealth at the water’s edge.

Perhaps it took Donald Trump fully to exploit the fish-in-a-barrel vulnerability of Democrats on climate. Democrats love citing a pending climate catastrophe but want to live in the land of the real politically, never taking ownership of policies actually commensurate with the alleged crisis. Al Gore, when he was running for president in 2000, wanted Bill Clinton to open the strategic reserve to keep gas prices low.

In his speech, Mr. Trump tweaked Hillary Clinton for promoting U.S fracking technology to China as secretary of state, then proposing to regulate fracking out of existence at home. He tweaked President Obama for seeking to block Canada’s energy exports by killing the Keystone pipeline even while enabling Iran to open its spigots.

Mr. Obama, proving again that he makes a better representative of the countries he visits than the one he comes from, said from Japan on Thursday that foreign leaders are “rattled” by the rise of Donald Trump.

Good grief. What endorsement could carry less weight with the American people? These are the same foreign leaders who’ve been marching America’s major allies into permanent decline, not least with massive renewable-energy subsidies that have produced no benefit for their societies. If anything survives as a monument to the great Trump boom of 2016, let’s hope it’s a turn toward realism on energy and climate.

Trump Tames Billary

Back in the days of the peace dividend, “Read my lips,” and “It’s the economy stupid” we were told we got two for the price of one.  And we sure did. One president to chase skirts in the Oval Office and one harridan to persecute his victims: Billary, the corrupt couple from Whitewater. Remember back in the Sleazy Nineties when the Clinton interlewed between George I and George II lowered the standards for what was acceptable public conduct. Remember all the fun we had with these two madcap political savants: Chinagate, Travelgate, Whitewater, Vince Foster, Filegate, the Cattle Futures Miracle, Lootergate, Drug Dealer Donor Scandal, Ponzi Scheme, and the Political Favor Scandal.

Then in 2000 AlGore their trusty assistant failed in his bid to continue their legacy of lunacy.  After two terms of Bushness the female side of Billary was in the Senate not passing legislation just screeching enough to keep her name in the headlines, approving wars she would later repudiate, and condemning Bush for believing phony intelligence she believed before she doubted.  In the meantime Bubba was flying off on the Lotlia Express to Orgy Island for a little RR with underage sex slaves.

Along comes 2008 and she and her con-conspirator Bill lined up for a re-run of the bimbo eruption express.  A funny thing happened on the way to her coronation.  Barack Hussein Obama erupted from who knows where, and reminiscent of the sainted JFK who defeated Tricky Dick he vanquished the Duality of Deception and just as JFK’s media facilitators built Camelot he built Chicago-on-the-Potomac.  This is a wondrous place where America gets fundamentally transformed from the Unipolar Hegemon of the World into a banana republic whose Tin Pot rules by decree, the borders are erased, the New Normal says .05% growth is the best we can do, and our Dear Leader bows to foreign despots and apologizes for who we were.

All that was just a bump in the road.

Along comes 2012 and after four years as a figurehead Secretary of State handing out re-set buttons that didn’t work, presiding over the massacre in Benghazi, and setting up an illegal private server so Bubba could solicit pre-election bribes she is ready to ride the backs of a complicit media back into the White House.  A funny thing happened on her way to her second coronation.  Crazy Bernie after years of being a Socialist back bencher became a Democratic Socialist and started winning primaries.  His brand of “From each according to their ability to each according to their need” Marxism appealed to the everyone-gets-a-trophy-for-showing-up generation and Billery started taking on water.

As the BOGO candidate failed to put away the crazy guy on the left they traded promises to give everyone everything, to punish business, and humble, humiliate, and cripple America even more than BHO.  Just because she is universally known to be an inveterate liar people seemed to believe the crazy one more than the sleazy one.

Crazy Bernie’s crowds filled stadiums and she was lucky to fill gymnasiums.  In an honest contest crazy would have beaten sleazy but it wasn’t anywhere near a fair fight.  The media carries water for the Duality of Debauchery and the super delegates in the Democrat system make the voters merely cover for smoke-filled rooms.

In the old days Bill would bite his lip and tell us, “I did not have sex with that woman,” or Hillary would remind us she is a woman and that would settle the matter.  Just like prosecutors believe they can indict a ham sandwich the media believed they could foist any type of incompetent dishonest lecher and his less than better half on the great unwashed. Then along came Trump.

The Donald upended the calculations of the Perpetually Reelected- Mainstream Media-Crony Capitalist Cartel.  The political hacks are confounded not knowing how to counter his counter punches.  The Media can’t help themselves. They have to cover everything he says since he pushes their ratings which have been taking a beating from alternative online sources.  They may spend more time trying to destroy him than anything else, but it turns out there is no such thing as bad press and they do spell his name right.  And the Crony Capitalists?  He’s one of their own, so if they haven’t already jumped on the Trump Train they will, because they know which side of their bread is buttered and they always end up on the winning side.

There are still many interesting things to look forward to in this unusual election cycle.

Billary will go over the top even if she loses California, but Crazy Bernie won’t go away.  He’s like the goofy old uncle who always shows up.  Sometimes you aren’t even sure how he is related to you, but he always shows up.

Then we have the 2016 Republican National Convention which will be held in Cleveland, Ohio at the Quicken Loans Arena July 18-21, 2016.  It will be the GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH complete with all-star entertainment, suspense and drama.  This will break records for ratings and launch Trump the Magnificent onto the world stage as the anointed leader of the millionaires and billionaires who are going to save the forgotten man.

Next comes the 2016 Democratic Convention that will be held at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia July 25th-28th, 2016.  That will either be a snoozefest or Chicago 1968 on steroids.  After this gathering of give-away artists have done all they can to whip their disparate interest groups into line, bribe the covetous, and fool the rest, after more than a year of preliminaries we finally will arrive at the actual election campaign.

Ah, the 2016 election this should be a show worth watching.  Billary will try everything.  Bill will bite his lip and Hillary will remind everyone she’s a woman.  The Media will do their best to paint her as a St. Hillary of Arch riding in to save us from the Trump monster.

This should be Kabuki of the highest order.  Billary will flail around using the same Democrat playbook as always and hurl baseless charges through their media megaphone like they did with Romney, “He hasn’t paid taxes in years” or “He gave someone a wedgie back in seventh grade.”  Bill will bite his lip and Hillary will still be a woman.

Mr. Trump will counterpunch so effectively Bill will be calling her Crooked Hillary before he’s done.  They won’t know what hit them.  They are busy building up the Clinton Library and Message Parlor with bribes, I mean donations, from the misogynistic oil slicks and anyone else who wants to get on the waiting list to rent the Lincoln Bedroom or get a pardon.  Having made millions giving 20 minute speeches about nothing Billary has no conception of what a person who really builds things and is a mover and shaker based on their achievements not their connections can move and shake.  They’ll have PTSD by the time the election results add their name to Goldwater and McGovern in the list of also rans.

Trump Earthquake Causes Democrat Tsunami

It is not often that we get to witness a true phenomenon.

The Reagan Revolution was exciting but it was not a phenomenon.  It was a carefully planned, long fought, and hard won battle between the Conservative wing and the Progressive wing of the Republican Party.

The Reagan Revolution began with The Speech by Ronaldos Maximus in support of Barry Goldwater delivered on a television program, Rendezvous with Destiny.  It blossomed during his two successful terms as Governor of California, and sputtered a little in 1976 when he lost the nomination for President to Gerald Ford in the last contested convention in American History.  Then after four years of hard grass roots work Reagan’s followers, this author included in their ranks, captured the party from precinct captain to national chairman.  The next eight years led to many successes, compromises, and a failure culminating in the party being handed over as a prize to George the First and the rest is History.  The Bush dynasty ran the brand into the ground.

Enter The Donald.  Now here is a phenomenon.  The last time a non-politician came from nowhere to capture the nomination of one of the major parties was in 1940 when the so-called Miracle in Philadelphia brought about the surprise nomination of a life-long Democrat who mirrored FDR’s positions on most important issues. He came in as a dark horse and through clever manipulation and behind the scenes machinations whisked the nomination out of the hands of the three top contenders: Senator Robert Taft of Ohio (the son of President William H. Taft), Senator Arthur Vandenberg of Michigan, and Manhattan District Attorney Thomas Dewey.  Of course this was back in the day when there really were smoke filled backrooms and party bosses and long before primaries and State caucuses.

Here we are a life-time later and the ideological descendants of the Wilkie wonks after turning the Party of Reagan into Democrat Lite were planning on foisting another Bush on their unwilling base.  Trump trumped them all.  He knocked off one establishment straw man after another as well as the closest thing we will see to Reagan to stand unchallenged for the nomination.  No grass roots organization, no army of K-Street consultants, hardly any advertising, just Trump.  His triumph over everyone else who should have won is a true political phenomenon.

Now comes the general election at least once the Democrats stop the charade of Hillary losing her way to the nomination and hold their coronation of the Queen of Hearts.

Even relying on the yellow-dog Democrats, the dead Democrats who continue to vote, and the undocumented Democrats Hillary is going to face an uphill battle.  When you consider she may be ethically challenged, personally cold, under threat of indictment, and bringing Slick Willy along  her campaign strategy consists of convincing people that her opponent is worse. You can see she may not be the certainty the liberal media make her out to be.

Just look at her record.  Everything she has accomplished has been because she said “I do” to Bubba.  While he was playing hound dog and doing some government jobs on the side she was busy covering up his serial abuse of women and smoothing out the wrinkles from his frequent bimbo eruptions.  Then after they left the White House, looting it on the way out the door, she ran for the Senate in a state where the Democrats own the vote.  She spends a term and a half accomplishing nothing and is appointed as Secretary of State.  The judgement of her tenure as America’s leading diplomat has yet to be adjudicated.  She is a poor campaigner at best.  And she’s bringing Bill back to the scene of his crimes.  This is not the recipe for the Clinton Crime Family to recapture the capitol.

If that isn’t enough we do have Hillary’s top scandals as reported in World Net Daily(this is an abbreviated version):

  1. Benghazi: Four American lives lost: On Sept. 11, 2012, while Hillary was secretary of state, Islamic militants attacked a U.S. special mission in Benghazi, Libya, and murdered U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and U.S. Foreign Service Information Management officer Sean Smith. Two CIA contractors, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, were also killed. In the months leading up to the attack, Hillary’s State Department cut security in Libya.  Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., accused Hillary of “dereliction of duty” that led to the deaths of the four Americans.  “The State Department not only failed to honor repeated requests for additional security, but instead actually reduced security in Libya,” Johnson wrote in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “Although no one can say with certainty, I firmly believe a relatively small contingent of armed military guards would have prevented the attack, and those four lives would not have been lost.”  As WND reported, a security decision finalized personally by Hillary may have unwittingly doomed the Americans in Benghazi. Hillary herself signed waivers that allowed the facility to be legally occupied, since it did not meet the minimum official security standards set by the State Department. The waiver legally allowed the CIA annex to be housed in a location about one mile from the U.S. special mission.  According to accounts from Benghazi survivors, the delayed response time by those at the CIA annex may have cost the lives of Stevens and the three other Americans killed at the special mission. If the CIA annex had been co-located with the U.S. special mission, a rapid response team would have been on site during the initial assault in which Stevens was killed. Clinton’s waiver allowed the CIA annex to be housed at the separate location.  As WND also reported, State Department emails show Clinton knew while the attack was under way that it was being carried out by terrorists.  Judicial Watch has obtained previously classified documents from the U.S. Department of Defense and the Department of State revealing that DOD almost immediately reported that the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was planned and carried out by al-Qaida and Muslim Brotherhood-linked terrorists. A federal court ordered the government hand over more than 100 pages of previously secret documents that showed then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and other senior Obama officials were given reports within hours of the Sept. 11, 2012, attack. In those memos, the DOD described details of a plan 10 days in advance “to kill as many Americans as possible.”  Nonetheless, Hillary falsely blamed it on “rage and violence over an awful Internet video” when she spoke at a ceremony at Andrews Air Force Base on Sept. 14, 2012, as the remains of the four Americans were returned to the U.S.

 

  1. Clintons turn IRS into ‘gestapo’: Individuals singled out for audits during the administration included Clinton paramours Gennifer Flowers and Liz Ward Gracen, sexual assault accusers Paula Jones and Juanita Broaddrick, fired White House Travel Office Director Billy Dale and attorney Kent Masterson Brown. Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly, an outspoken critic of both Bill and Hillary Clinton, said he was audited three times during the Clinton presidency. A 1996 survey by the Washington Times could not identify a single liberal public policy organization that had been audited during the entire Clinton administration.

 

  1. Filegate: FBI files on GOP enemies: The Clinton duo was involved in a scandal known as “Filegate” in which they illegally obtained FBI files on perceived adversaries, most of whom served in previous Republican administrations.  The scandal was first detected by the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee, which investigated the Clintons’ Travelgate caper. The committee found that the FBI files had been improperly accessed by Craig Livingstone, a former bar bouncer Hillary had hired to work in the White House Counsel’s Office. However, Hillary called the whole affair a “completely honest bureaucratic snafu.”

 

  1. Travelgate: The staff of the White House travel office was fired to make way for Clinton cronies, including Bill’s 25-year-old cousin, who was reportedly promised the position of office director.  Hillary allegedly fired seven employees and gave the positions to her Arkansas friends. According to the Washington Post, there was an effort to award a White House airline contract to a Clinton friend.  Also, Hillary reportedly had the FBI investigate the former head of the travel office, Billy Dale, who was fired without notice and removed from the White House grounds. Dale was charged with embezzlement but found not guilty of the crime in 1995. He was later audited by the IRS.

 

  1. Landing under sniper fire’ in Bosnia:  In her March 17, 2008, foreign-policy speech on Iraq, then-Sen. Hillary Clinton recalled a trip she made to Tuzla, Bosnia, in 1996.  “I remember landing under sniper fire,” Hillary said of her visit while she was first lady. “There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.”  But news footage of her visit revealed her “sniper fire” claim wasn’t just exaggerated. It was completely false. And Hillary had repeated the claim several times, including during her time on the presidential campaign trail in 2007. Rather, Hillary landed on a tarmac and greeted a crowd, including an 8-year-old child who gave her a poem, under no duress. According to the Washington Post, a review of more than 100 news articles revealed no security threats to Hillary at the time.

 

  1. Hillary’s ‘missing’ law firm billing records: In 1994, federal investigators subpoenaed Hillary’s billing records from her days as a partner in the Rose Law firm during the Watergate scandal. The White House said it didn’t have the 115 pages of files. While Hillary claimed she had a minor role in the affair, the Washington Examiner reported that “when the records mysteriously turned up in the White House in 1996, they showed she met repeatedly with key figures in the scandal.”

 

  1. Pardongate: Hillary Senate contributions: Before Bill Clinton left the White House in 2001, he granted numerous controversial pardons – including to convicted tax evader Marc Rich, whose wife made significant contributions to Hillary’s 2000 Senate campaign and the Clinton presidential library. The Associated Press reported that Rich had been “indicted by a U.S. federal grand jury on more than 50 counts of fraud, racketeering, trading with Iran during the U.S. Embassy hostage crisis and evading more than $48 million in income taxes – crimes that could have earned him more than 300 years in prison.” Rich fled to Switzerland in 1983 after his indictment and remained on the FBI’s Most Wanted List until President Clinton pardoned him.  Also, Hillary’s brothers, Tony and Hugh Rodham, reportedly received large amounts of money from people who were pardoned by Bill Clinton. Hillary said she and Bill were unaware of the scheme.  Accuracy in Media reported, “Hugh Rodham, Hillary’s brother, was taking money and promising access to help get pardons. Two such high profile cases were those of drug kingpin Carlos Vignali and convicted swindler Glenn Braswell. Rodham received hundreds of thousands of dollars from each, and they were both granted pardons. Rodham was quoted as telling a top White House aide that the pardon for Vignali was ‘very important’ to Hillary.”

 

  1. Hillary’s cash cows and 9,987 percent profit: In March 1994, it was revealed Hillary – with no previous experience – had made massive profits from cattle futures trading between 1978 and 1979, when Bill Clinton’s salary as Arkansas attorney general had been modest. She reportedly made $99,537 in profit on a $1,000 investment (a 9,987 percent profit) in just nine months because of a highly placed connection at Tyson Foods, which was the largest employer in Arkansas and a big Clinton donor.  The New York Times reported: “During Mr. Clinton’s tenure as Governor, Tyson benefited from several state decisions, including favorable environmental rulings, $9 million in state loans, and the placement of company executives on important state boards. … The commodities trades were the most successful investment the Clintons ever made. The nearly $100,000 profit enabled them to buy a house, invest in securities and real estate and provide a nest egg for their daughter, Chelsea.”

 

  1. Clinton body count: ‘You find dead people’ “The Clinton body count,” first published in WND and later circulated by Linda Tripp to Monica Lewinsky, is a collection of names of people associated with Clinton administration scandals who have died mysterious and often violent deaths. Reporter David Bresnahan broke the story of the list during the summer of 1997 while researching his book, “Cover Up: The Art and Science of Political Deception.”  “I started looking into all the various deaths of people that were involved in various Clinton scandals,” Bresnahan “I started to investigate the entire picture instead of just one focused event. Nobody out there was putting it all together,” he said. “If you look at one scandal, you’ll find one dead guy. When you investigate all Clinton scandals, you find similarities, you find common tactics, you find common actions and you find dead people.”  The list was not just a source of terror among sworn enemies of the administration. It was an even greater terror for those close to Clinton – for those closest, it appeared, died younger and more inexplicably than those on the outside looking in.  In his research, Bresnahan came up with more than one list. “Not only did I find a list of dead people, but I also found that there are over 100 people who have refused to testify,” he said at the time. “There is also a list of people who have gone to jail. There are 45 people who have gone to jail, some of them White House staff, Cabinet members as well as people from the Justice Department. So many of those (lists) developed when I started to pursue the big picture.”

 

  1. Watergate: Fired for being a ‘liar’ Hillary actually played a role in the Watergate saga, and her actions as a young attorney may have set the tone for her career.  The 27-year-old Clinton was fired from the staff of the House Judiciary committee investigating the Watergate scandal in 1974. She was fired by her supervisor, lifelong Democrat Jerry Zeifman, who called her a liar and much worse.  “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer,” he said. “She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.” Zeifman also refused to give Clinton a letter of recommendation, making her one of only three employees he snubbed during his 17-year career.

Who knows maybe she will get indicted before the coronation and save the democrats all this baggage.  Then they could parachute in Biden and Warren to save the day.  Or maybe they will nominate the man who is winning so many of their primaries and instead of a red queen go for a red king.

Believe it or not Bernie’s their best chance and he’s a Socialist.  I know his useful idiots repeat the party line, “He’s not a Socialist.  He’s a Democratic Socialist.”  This is like Hitler reassuring the Germans with, “I’m not a Fascist I’m a National Socialist.”  A statist is a statist, central planning is central planning, and collectivism is collectivism.  To put it in terms the philosophical among Bernie’s supporters might understand Capitalism is the thesis, Socialism is the anti-thesis, and Progressivism is the synthesis.

At least he would bring the enthusiasm for anything but the status quo to the support of the Democrat ticket.  If they nominate anyone else a large percentage of that vote may well end up crossing over from the dark side and support Trump.

However, try as they may, the Democrats are on the wrong side of History in this election cycle.  Their rule-by-decree culture of corruption coupled with the Neo-Conns and their nation-building wars for peace have brought us to the precipice.  The political class ensconced in their gated communities and safe behind the beltway moat may not know it or they may not care, but the once secure middle-class in the rustbelt flyover country know it and Trump has managed to convincingly play the marshal for this parade.  He has ridden the wave of discontent into the nomination and the phenomenon that is the Trump earthquake is about to cause a tsunami for the Democrats.

I just pray that everyone remembers that while a rising tide may lift all boats a crashing tidal wave submerges the whole coast and anything less than freedom isn’t freedom.

Keep the faith.  Keep the peace.  We shall overcome.

TRUMP LAYS OUT FOREIGN POLICY VISION

An America-First diplomacy.

trump176
Donald Trump vowed to undo the many foreign policy and national security failures of President Obama, along with the persistent sense of American impotence in the face of international challenges, in an important, muscular speech yesterday, outlining what a Trump administration would do in office.

A one-man wrecking crew who has been demolishing politically-correct pieties since he launched his campaign last year with a call to arms against illegal immigration, Trump announced that the foreign policy administered by Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and John Kerry that has emboldened Islamic terror has been catastrophic not just for America but for the whole world.

In an address to the Center for the National Interest founded by the late President Richard Nixon, Trump promised to put America first and make it strong again. He slammed the Obama administration for strengthening our enemies, belittling our allies, and diminishing respect around the world for the United States. One of the most prominent themes Trump advanced was Obama’s projection of pathetic weakness, including his downsizing of the military, which has led to the rise of Islamic State and fueled Middle East chaos. As Trump put it, “If President Obama’s goal had been to weaken America, he could not have done a better job.”

Weakening the country, of course, has long been the goal of the Radical-in-Chief now occupying the Oval Office. Obama and his radical pals Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, Rashid Khalidi, Valerie Jarrett, Frank Marshall Davis, and a huge chorus of America-haters have spent their lives fostering American weakness. Weakness leads to losing, but Trump stated that he wants America to start winning again. This will happen not only by refocusing our foreign policy on strictly serving American interests, but also by vocally defending America’s international role and American ideals on the global stage. “I will view as president the world through the clear lens of American interests,” Trump affirmed. “I will be America’s greatest defender and most loyal champion. We will not apologize for becoming successful again, but will instead embrace the unique heritage that makes us who we are.”

Central in Trump’s speech was criticizing what has become the modus operandi of the Obama foreign policy era: extending aid and comfort to our enemies while treating our friends with enmity. As a result, America’s enemies don’t fear us and our allies don’t trust us.

“Our friends are beginning to think they can’t depend on us,” Trump said. “We’ve had a president who dislikes our friends and bows to our enemies, something that we’ve never seen before in the history of our country.”

For example, Obama has allowed Communist China “to steal government secrets with cyber attacks and engage in industrial espionage against the United States and its companies.”

Most notably, Obama has treated Iran “with tender love and care” that has made it “a great power … in just a very short period of time,” while at the same time snubbing and criticizing Israel, “our great friend and the one true democracy in the Middle East.”

Obama “negotiated a disastrous deal with Iran, and then we watched them ignore its terms even before the ink was dry.” As president, Trump stated that he would “never, ever” allow Iran to possess a nuclear weapon. The Iranian threat will be the defining threat of this generation thanks primarily to Obama’s appeasement-at-any-price outreach to the Iranian mullahs, which has set the stage for military confrontation. The next administration will have to contend with this as the foremost threat to America and our allies, and Trump made clear that his eyes are open on the severity of this coming conflict.

Trump also targeted Hillary Clinton. Like Obama, the former Secretary of State, now the Democratic Party’s frontrunner, can’t bring herself to name America’s foremost enemy — radical Islam — even as she “pushes for a massive increase in refugees coming into our country,” Trump said. “Unless you name the enemy, you will never ever solve the problem,” he affirmed a speech in that compared the nation’s fight against Islamic Jihad to the struggle against communism during the Cold War.

Radical Islam must be fought abroad as well as inside America, Trump declared.

“There are scores of recent migrants inside our borders charged with terrorism. For every case known to the public, there are dozens and dozens more. We must stop importing extremism through senseless immigration policies. We have no idea where these people are coming from. There’s no documentation, There’s no paperwork. There’s nothing. We have to be smart. We have to be vigilant.”

Trump also had a simple message for the Islamic State, stressing the importance of deception against the enemy in conflict, a tactic clearly missing in Obama’s foreign policy:

“Their days are numbered. I won’t tell them where and I won’t tell them how. We must as a nation be more unpredictable. We are totally predictable. We tell everything. We’re sending troops. We tell them. We’re sending something else. We have a news conference. We have to be unpredictable. And we have to be unpredictable starting now. But they’re going to be gone. ISIS will be gone if I’m elected president. And they’ll be gone quickly.”

Trump also slammed Clinton for her “failed intervention in Libya, [after which] Islamic terrorists in Benghazi took down our consulate and killed our ambassador and three brave Americans. Then, instead of taking charge that night, Hillary Clinton decided to go home and sleep.” To make matter worse, Clinton blamed “it all on a video, an excuse that was a total lie, proven to be absolutely a total lie.”

The Republican presidential frontrunner continued by stressing the positives of America. The U.S., in his view, is:

“a humanitarian nation, but the legacy of the Obama-Clinton interventions will be weakness, confusion, and disarray. A mess. We’ve made the Middle East more unstable and chaotic than ever before. We left Christians subject to intense persecution and even genocide. We have done nothing to help the Christians, nothing, and we should always be ashamed for that, for that lack of action.”

Trump also criticized the “dangerous” neo-conservative effort to democratize the world, and argued for a kind of old-fashioned conservatism, seemingly for modest foreign policy goals and stability. “We are getting out of the nation-building business, and instead focusing on creating stability in the world,” he said.

The reassuring clarifications that Trump offered about his foreign policy views should be a step towards satisfying some of his conservative critics. The speech was a strong beginning in that direction but it also contained some statements that would definitely concern a portion of the conservative camp. Trump, for instance, suggested that the U.S. should be prepared to exit NATO, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. Many conservatives wouldn’t see a problem with pointing out NATO’s problems and how America is being taken advantage of by member nations that aren’t paying their fair share, but they would certainly question how threatening the end of NATO complements Trump’s objective of making America a strong military presence in the world. NATO has been a key element of global security and it is usually isolationists and leftists, not conservatives, who want to abolish NATO.

Trump also continued to preach the gospel of economic nationalism, with its tariffs and trade wars that many conservatives would argue benefit entrenched interests while soaking American consumers and generating economic depressions and recessions. He spoke of “the theft of American jobs” and characterized NAFTA, the North American Free Trade Agreement, as “a total disaster for the United States.” He also struck a familiar refrain complaining about the loss of manufacturing jobs in states like Pennsylvania and New York, which many conservatives would argue were lost not because some big, mean bully took them away, but because manufacturing tends not to be a cost-effective endeavor in the U.S.

Trump’s address comes after his big night Tuesday in which he decisively won Republican primaries in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island. He now has 987 of the 1,237 delegates he needs for a first-ballot victory at this summer’s GOP nominating convention in Cleveland, according to Real Clear Politics (at time of this writing). His rivals are far behind with Ted Cruz at 562, John Kasich at 153, and Marco Rubio, who suspended his campaign, at 171 delegates.

And Trump’s support among many Republican voters appears to be solidifying. According to the NBC News/Survey Monkey weekly tracking poll unveiled Tuesday, Trump now enjoys 50 percent support among Republicans and Republican-leaners nationally for the first time since the poll was launched in December. Cruz and Kasich are both well behind the New York businessman with 26 percent and 17 percent, respectively.

Time will tell if Donald Trump succeeds in his present ambition and will, eventually, stand the test of implementing the foreign policy he has proposed for America.
