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”?

The Back Alley Becomes Main Street

Abortion mills are not required to meet health standards as high as veterinary clinics yet when Texas passes a law requiring them to meet minimum standards for any health establishment the Supreme Corruption rules this is too much.

It is the opinion of the Legalist Illuminati that we have progressed past anything as quaint as constitutional rights, such as the right to life without which the right to liberty and the pursuit of happiness doesn’t have any meaning.  Then again according to the Apex of the Esquire Class the Constitution always and only means what the Supremes say it means.

According to Richard A. Posner who is a judge, U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit, and a senior lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School “I see absolutely no value to a judge of spending decades, years, months, weeks, day, hours, minutes, or seconds studying the Constitution, the history of its enactment, its amendments, and its implementation (across the centuries—well, just a little more than two centuries, and of course less for many of the amendments). Eighteenth-century guys, however smart, could not foresee the culture, technology, etc., of the 21st century. Which means that the original Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the post–Civil War amendments (including the 14th), do not speak to today. David Strauss is right: The Supreme Court treats the Constitution like it is authorizing the court to create a common law of constitutional law, based on current concerns, not what those 18th-century guys were worrying about.  In short, let’s not let the dead bury the living.”

The Legion of Doom that makes up the modern woman’s movement has put all its eggs in the abortion basket.  This is their litmus test.  This is their un-holy grail filled with the blood of the martyrs.  Refuse to drink and you shall be cast outside the pail of the liberal establishment, its media propaganda machine, and its crony capitalist K-Street funding cabal.  All Progressive politicos are required to kiss the ring and bow before the Rider of the Pale Horse.

What was so onerous about the Texas law?  What undue burden did it use to oppress women and deny them of their rights? The rules required doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals and forced clinics to meet hospital-like standards for outpatient surgery.  All this disguised as concern for women’s health.  Why anyone can see that requiring more of abortionists than was once required of their back alley ancestors was obviously a stratagem designed to subjugate women and deprive them of their constitutionally protected right to undergo a serious medical procedure with no clinical or sanitary requirements whatsoever.

Other blatant violations of women’s rights imposed by the right wing hate mongers include limits on when in a pregnancy abortions may be performed and the use of drugs that induce abortions without surgical intervention.  After our Supreme Court of Last Resort invoked their arbitrary power to void the laws of Texas and numerous other states Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said the law “was an effort to improve minimum safety standards and ensure capable care for Texas women. It’s exceedingly unfortunate that the court has taken the ability to protect women’s health out of the hands of Texas citizens and their duly elected representatives.”

Some of the Black Robed Rulers of our land made statements concerning this case.

Justice Ginsburg, the former lead attorney for Planned Parenthood the nation’s largest chain of abortion mills, wrote a short opinion noting that laws like Texas’ “that do little or nothing for health, but rather strew impediments to abortion, cannot survive judicial inspection” under the court’s earlier abortion-rights decisions. She pointed specifically to Roe v. Wade in 1973 and Planned Parenthood v. Casey in 1992.

Justice Thomas wrote that the decision “Exemplifies the court’s troubling tendency to bend the rules when any effort to limit abortion, or even to speak in opposition to abortion, is at issue.”

Justice Alito, reading a summary of his dissent in court, said “The clinics should have lost on technical, procedural grounds.” Alito also said “The court was adopting a rule of, if at first you don’t succeed, sue, sue and sue again.”

Abortion providers said the rules would have cut the number of abortion clinics in Texas to fewer than 10 if they had been allowed to take full effect.  In other words less than 10 were willing to have doctors who met the standards for having admitting privileges at local hospitals or to meet hospital-like standards for outpatient surgery.

Nancy Northup, president of the Center for Reproductive Rights, which represented the clinics, said, “The Supreme Court sent a loud and clear message that politicians cannot use deceptive means to shut down abortion clinics.”

President Barack Obama praised the decision, saying, “We remain strongly committed to the protection of women’s health, including protecting a woman’s access to safe, affordable health care and her right to determine her own future.”

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton called the outcome “A victory for women in Texas and across America.”

The only losers anyone can see are the women who are lulled into thinking they are undergoing a safe procedure in a sanitary medical environment. When in fact they are the subjects of unregulated abortionists in uninspected and often unsanitary abortion mills where millions of children die and millions of dollars are made for the industry of death that has decimated entire generations of Americans.  Not only do all the babies die but so do some of the women.  Of course you will never hear that from the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media because today the back alley has become Main Street, and we can’t allow these right wing conspiracy nuts to interfere with the right to kill babies.  That would violate the Constitution. Maybe it is a suicide pact after all.

Bitter Clingers Hang On

Stand and Deliver - Paul’s Message to Peter

What we learn before we turn eighteen becomes the common sense of our later life.  Just as the vast majority of people after careful consideration of all the candidates and the issues end up voting for the same party as their parents so too most people can never break free of the paradigm impressed upon them as they grew up.

Many people repeat the time worn phrase, “Those who don’t learn from History are doomed to repeat it.”  As a person who has read and studied History on a daily basis for more than fifty years one of the major lessons I have learned is that the general public never learn from History, mainly because they don’t read or study it.  Perhaps they were spoon-fed a few classes as they meandered through the American education factory but they never tried to do more than memorize enough to regurgitate at the proper time to move on.  What was presented was based upon biased agenda of whoever picked the texts and prepared the lessons.  The only way to get a broader view is to read and study.

Note how many people can give you statistics ad infinitum concerning their preferred sports team but are unable to tell you the most basic facts concerning American History such as why there were battles at Lexington and Concord, or what was the gun trade and how it impacted the History of colonial America.   Americans are woefully ignorant of History; therefore they have no context for the History of the future which is current events.  The news of the day is text floating in a vacuum.  Remember a text without a context is a pretext.  And all the many happenings of the day all become pretexts for the furtherance of the Progressive corporate state.

History forms the seedbed of the future.  If we can’t connect yesterday with tomorrow the study of History today is a wasted journey into futility.  We might as well read fiction as it is usually better written and more imaginative.

Here is a lesson from History: Socialism doesn’t work.  Look at the most spectacular crash of an empire in our lives: the sudden Christmas present to the world of the unexpected evaporation of that great prison house of nations the USSR.  Look at the rolling blackouts of Venezuela.  Look at the pathetic pictures of a once prosperous Havana now a slum frozen in time.  Socialism provides example after example, it just doesn’t work.

Winston Churchill said, “Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.” Margret Thatcher told us that the problem with Socialism is that sooner or later you run out of other people’s money. Ronald Reagan said, “Socialism only works in two places: Heaven where they don’t need it and hell where they already have it.”  The way I see it, once it becomes obvious that robbing Peter to pay Paul is the foundational policy of the State everyone will change their name to Paul.

A basic truism of economics is that if you subsidize something you get more of it and if you penalize something you get less.  Using this as a lens, let us look at American society today.

We subsidize businesses that fail.  Look at President Obama’s green energy boondoggles. Thirty-four companies that have received taxpayer money are showing us why we end up paying Six hundred dollars for a hammer.  These white elephants have either gone bankrupt, they are laying off workers, or they are swirling around the bankruptcy drain.

The complete list of faltering or bankrupt green-energy companies:

  1. Evergreen Solar ($25 million)*
  2. SpectraWatt ($500,000)*
  3. Solyndra ($535 million)*
  4. Beacon Power ($43 million)*
  5. Nevada Geothermal ($98.5 million)
  6. SunPower ($1.2 billion)
  7. First Solar ($1.46 billion)
  8. Babcock and Brown ($178 million)
  9. EnerDel’s subsidiary Ener1 ($118.5 million)*
  10. Amonix ($5.9 million)
  11. Fisker Automotive ($529 million)
  12. Abound Solar ($400 million)*
  13. A123 Systems ($279 million)*
  14. Willard and Kelsey Solar Group ($700,981)*
  15. Johnson Controls ($299 million)
  16. Brightsource ($1.6 billion)
  17. ECOtality ($126.2 million)
  18. Raser Technologies ($33 million)*
  19. Energy Conversion Devices ($13.3 million)*
  20. Mountain Plaza, Inc. ($2 million)*
  21. Olsen’s Crop Service and Olsen’s Mills Acquisition Company ($10 million)*
  22. Range Fuels ($80 million)*
  23. Thompson River Power ($6.5 million)*
  24. Stirling Energy Systems ($7 million)*
  25. Azure Dynamics ($5.4 million)*
  26. GreenVolts ($500,000)
  27. Vestas ($50 million)
  28. LG Chem’s subsidiary Compact Power ($151 million)
  29. Nordic Windpower ($16 million)*
  30. Navistar ($39 million)
  31. Satcon ($3 million)*
  32. Konarka Technologies Inc. ($20 million)*
  33. Mascoma ($100 million)

*Denotes companies that have filed for bankruptcy.  As listed in the Daily Signal.

We penalize success.  Our corporate tax rate is the third highest in the world.  Because of this many of our most successful corporations are seeking to relocate to other countries with lower tax rates in a practice known as Corporate Inversion.  Some stock holders might call that due diligence.  Our wanabe Big Brothers call it treason.  Our Dear Leader followed his habit of ruling by decree and declared the procedure to be illegal. Afterwards he renewed calls on Congress to pass a law to prohibit the practice putting the cart before the horse constitutionally speaking.  We can’t build a fence to keep intruders out, but we can build a legal fence to keep earners in to pay for the very system that is penalizing them for succeeding.

The evidence that Socialism doesn’t work is all around us.  The cratered hulks of socialist failure abound.  Yet in America today we are told that the majority of Millennials have given up on Capitalism and embrace Socialism.  This shouldn’t be surprising.  If you receive a trophy for showing up it should not be surprising if you expect a trophy for showing up.

And then we have the phenomenon of Bernie Sanders.  An avowed Socialist who has never had a private sector job, never had a steady paycheck until he was in his forties when he was elected to public office, and was even thrown out of a Hippie commune because he refused to work.

Here is this near-do-well who has never created a job, run anything productive, or even held a real job who wants to penalize everyone who works to support everyone who doesn’t, and millions of Americans say yes with their votes and their donations.  If you need a visual for passing the tipping point Obama with his fundamental transformation of America, Hillary with her it’s my turn I’m a woman vote for me entitlement attitude and Goldman Sachs paychecks isn’t enough just take a look at Red Bernie and his fellow travelers.

How did it ever come to this?  We allowed our educational system to be captured by Progressives who indoctrinated generations of America hating, entitlement grabbing, special interest supporting citizens who have voted for getting more and more and more and willing to contribute less and less and less.

If socialism works, why don’t we just vote ourselves $100,000 a year, free medical, guaranteed retirement at 40, and a home in the Hamptons while we’re at it?  Just charge it to Peter, if you can find him.

One final question might frame the discussion nicely, “Who is John Galt?”

Bart Simpson For President

That ultimate symbol of mischievous scamp Bart Simpson in Season One of the longest running show in TV history when caught red-handed offered up one of his signature phrases, “I didn’t do it, nobody saw me do it, there’s no way you can prove anything.”

This came to mind when I was thinking about Hillary “They’ll Never Indict Me” Clinton and her morally challenged obviously corrupt character.   Donald Trump has said, “I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose any voters.”  Hillary could say, “I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t get indicted.”

Everyone in the country knows that if any of us common people did one hundredth of what she has done in the email scandal alone we would have already been indicted along with the ten year Navy Vet indicted for taking a selfie on a submarine.  The Obama Justice Department is not going to indict Mrs. Clinton no matter what the FBI recommends.  She is above the law and she knows it or as she infamously said in the Benghazi hearing with regard to our four dead heroes, “What does it matter now?”

As a person who has been involved with and has closely followed the American political scene for more than fifty years this is the first time in my personal memory or Historical knowledge that a potential candidate for one party has promised to prosecute a potential candidate of the other party if elected.

As Secretary of State, Hillary’s accomplishments include the failed reset with Russia and of course her debacle in Libya.  As a United State Senator what did she accomplish?  In eight years she only sponsored three inconsequential laws:

S.3145, which designated a portion of U.S. Route 20A, located in Orchard Park, N.Y., as the “Timothy J. Russert Highway,” after the former “Meet the Press” host.

  1. 3613, which renamed the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 2951 New York Highway 43 in Averill Park, New York, as the “Major George Quamo Post Office Building.”
  2. 1241 which made the brick house of 19th century female union leader Kate Mullany a national historic site.

Her major accomplishment is that she married a man who became the most ethically challenged president in American History.  As the wife of Bill Clnton she was deeply involved in smothering the serial bimbo eruptions which grew out of his long history of having affairs, sexually harassing women who worked for him, and assaulting others.   This is the person who portrays herself as an advocate of women’s rights.

To highlight just one of her hypocritical faux stances for women’s rights look at her advocacy for equal pay.  The Clinton Foundation pays women executives 38% less than their male counterparts.  During her time in the Senate she paid women 72 cents for every dollar she paid men.  According to public records her current campaign pays women staffers less than she pays men. So much for putting your money where your mouth is!

Looking back once more to the email scandal that Hillary so nonchalantly dismisses if as she maintains she never received nor sent any classified material during her entire term as our Secretary of State my question is, what was she doing besides traveling the world at our expense?  Was she out of the loop and merely Secretary of State in name only?   It is inconceivable that anyone could be the Secretary of State and not send or receive any classified material.  That is beyond belief and a lie so transparent it shows total contempt for those it is meant to fool.

In the current election the Great Impresario likes to label people.  In many ways it is an effective form of political shorthand.  It sums up the thoughts, accusations, and beliefs about a person and brings them crashing in whenever they hear the catcall.  Lyin Ted and Little Marco have taken their toll picked up and repeated by the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media and their pet FOX.  Now we have Crooked Hillary.  The others were just effective.  This one seems appropriate.

If Hillary wins the presidency it will be a watershed just as the election and then re-election of her husband was.  As his marked the end of public morality hers will mean the end of the rule of law.  It will become evident to anyone observant enough to note the sunrise that enforcement of the bewildering lattice of laws and regulations are only aimed at the common folk not at our masters.

If such a legally challenged individual can fool enough of the people all the time to sit in the oval office it reminds me of what Bart said to Homer after it was revealed he had cheated on an important test, “I cheated on the intelligence test. I’m sorry. But I just want to say that the past few weeks have been great. Me and you have done stuff together. You’ve helped me out with things and we’re closer than we’ve ever been. I love you, Dad. And I think if something can bring us that close it can’t possibly be bad.”

Doing bad things for good purposes is the operational rational of Progressive Liberalism.  The ends justify the means was the operational rational of all the megalomaniac dictators of world History.  Please explain the difference.

How Strange Can It Get?

six-degrees-of-separation

Some people believe in the Six Degrees of Separation Theory: the idea that everyone in the world is separated from everyone else by six links. 
Some people believe all of us are in this thing together, and that diversity is our strength and I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together.

Even if we are all connected in ways we cannot know I believe the world is filled with strangers.  Take a ride and as you pass through country, town, and city you are constantly presented with the faces of people you will never know, and all of whom have lives and families that will never know you or your life or your family.  Every day we see people we have never seen before and will never see again.  They rise out of the mist beyond the pale of our personal knowledge and immediately are submerged again never to rise again.  Our only connection will forever be that one fleeting moment when we moved through a single frame of the separate sagas which are our lives.

Unlike Cain I do believe we are our brother’s keeper, and unlike Scrooge I believe we should help our brothers in need instead of seeing them boiled with their own pudding and buried with a stake of holly through their hearts.  However, unlike the rhetoric of Marx, Lenin, President Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Bernie Sanders I do not believe that life should operate on the basis of from each according to their ability to each according to their need, or as we say in America today, spreading the wealth around.  In other words, I am not a socialist.  I believe in personal liberty, individual freedom, and economic opportunity.  Sadly I find myself out of phase with the Progressive Clique which has successfully maneuvered its way to power using the education system, the media, government handouts, and uninformed, uninvolved, and emotional voters.

Out of phase or not, I believe in the equality of opportunity which gives everyone a shot at success as opposed to the equality of outcome which our Dear Leader and his fellow-travelers wish to foist upon us, and which gives everyone the assurance of mediocrity.   No matter the consequence, no matter the sacrifice we must stand up for what we believe or we will stand by while our nation is transformed into what we won’t be able to believe is still called the United States of America.

Day by day the bean counting pencil pushers who make up the nameless faceless bureaucracy grind out rule after rule and regulation after regulation with the force of law.  President Obama’s signature piece of legislation, Obamacare, churns out thousands upon thousands of pages of federal requirements all meant to fill in the blanks in a 2600 page bill that we had to pass to find out what was in it.

Hope and change has become bait and switch. In the last presidential election Mr. Obama wasn’t even trying to win votes from those who disagree with him.  He wasn’t trying to change minds. He was blatantly buying votes.  He was betting that generations of entitlements had finally birthed the lumpen proletariat that his theories of government proclaim must exist for History to reach its summit.  He bet his second term on the belief that there were enough people dependent upon the government that they would vote for a handout instead of voting for a hand up.  He bet that America had been dumbed down enough and bribed enough to trade our heritage of freedom for the yoke of a guaranteed something instead of the opportunity for everything.

Class warfare, penalizing success, dividing America into interest groups and voter blocks this was the strategy Mr. Obama thought would win as he worked to build a coalition of leftist intellectuals and those convinced they were disenfranchised.  Looking at the polls it appeared he had the solid core of 40+% who will vote for a Democrat even if he is the devil himself.  The question was would the unengaged and uninformed voters when combined with the illegals and the dead who at least get to vote in Chicago be enough for him to win?  In the end it didn’t matter when Romney decided to take the last month of the campaign off after throwing the last few debates.

Can you imagine what a third Obama term (or as some call it Hillary’s first term) will look like won on the basis of her promise to double down on social democracy, a complete disregard for the balance of power, and a desire to totally transform America?  What will be left of the America we have known?  How would we ever get back to where we came from?  No entitlement once enacted has ever been repealed.  The size of government never shrinks.  The power it usurps from the people and the States is never surrendered and the check and balance of the Supreme Court will be frozen into a Progressive rubber stamp.

A world filled with strangers keeps getting stranger all the time.  No matter how many degrees of separation we should never be as divided as our Progressive Leaders try to portray us.  We are Americans, and we can do better than this.  Reject the siren song of free entitlements which are never free, and embrace the liberty our forefathers won for us.  Let us renew our great experiment in human freedom and strive to see our nation rise again to be the last best hope of man that it is meant to be.  The shining city on a hill that can light the way to a future worthy of free men and women held together by unity.  Not a falling empire of competing special interests cobbled together as a ruling coalition led by an elitist clique who promotes separation and hyphenated Americans.

Even if it takes more than six degrees of separation to connect to others what does it matter how connected we are to people around the world if we are in terminal disagreement with our fellow Americans?  As a nation we are divided between those who want to strive to achieve and those who thrive because they receive.  The Progressives have bred generations of passive takers who believe they are entitled to the fruit of others’ labor.  They pay no taxes so they don’t care how high taxes go.  They have no conception of paying for what they have, so they don’t care about the national debt.  They see America as a vending machine, so they don’t believe in our unique place in History.  They desire a shabby world of bread and circuses based on equality of outcome, so they don’t long to be all they can be.

Those of us who want America to be what America has been and what it should be, the home of the brave and the land of the free can’t let divisions divide us anymore!  We must unite to save liberty or we will stand alone at the end of the day.  We may be strangers to one another.  We may not know each other but if we are fellow believers in the personal liberty, individual freedom, and economic opportunity we must unite over what connects us to save what has always made us E PLURIBUS UNUM.

Either that or we admit we are merely strangers in a strange land looking around at the social and cultural turmoil of today wondering how strange can it get.

This 95-Second Video Could Cost Hillary Clinton The Race…

I’d say that Hillary Clinton had a bad week, except for the fact that bad weeks have become pretty much par for the course for the former first lady and 2016 presidential hopeful.

First and foremost, there’s the investigation into her private email server. The number of emails containing classified information is now up to a whopping 305, and the odds are it won’t stop there. There’s also the matter of her failing poll numbers. The latest surveys show self-described socialist and genial nutcase Bernie Sanders within striking distance of Hillary, whose numbers have dipped under 50 percent for the first time — all without a long-rumored Joe Biden run.

Now comes an ad from the conservative America Rising PAC which devastates the Hillary myth in a little over a minute and a half:


As you can see, the ad clearly contradicts everything that Clinton has been lying about.

For instance, take that subpoena, which she claimed she never received. And yet, there’s the subpoena, pictured in black and white.
Then there’s the matter of classified information being handled on Clinton’s personal email server.

First she claimed there were never any classified documents on there. Then investigators found some. That’s when she doubled down and said, yet again, there were no classified emails on the server. Then investigators found “Top Secret” emails.

To her sort-of credit, Clinton has just kept on persevering with her lies in the face of all reliable evidence. At this point, she’s essentially asking America, “Who’re you going to believe — me, or those lying emails?”

Unsurprisingly, America tends to believe the latter.

The White House is Covering for Hillary Clinton and the FBI is “Super Pissed-Off”!

The FBI has been investigating the scandal surrounding Hillary Clinton’s lawless use of a private email server during her time as Secretary of State. Sadly, much of their work has been roundly abused by the Obama administration and the Democrat Party. Unjustly so. The FBI is not at fault for pursuing an investigation into obviously criminal behavior, but if their investigation uncovers proof of Mrs. Clinton’s malfeasance, then the Democrat Party could lose many of the gains they’ve made during the Obama era. This is something that the President seems dead-set against allowing.

How sold-out is the Obama team to discrediting the investigation against Clinton? They are prepared to sacrifice the sanctity of our system of justice to defend the law-breaking Clinton.

When asked during a recent press conference whether or not Clinton would be indicted, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest had this to say, “That will be a decision made by the Department of Justice and prosecutors over there. What I know that some officials over there have said is that she is not a target of the investigation. So that does not seem to be the direction that it’s trending. But I’m certainly not going to weigh in on a decision or in that process in any way. That is a decision to be made solely by independent prosecutors but again, based on what we know from the Department of Justice, it does not seem to be headed in that direction.”

Anyone who understands the way the justice system in America works knows that this type of statement from the White House is completely out of place, as it undercuts the investigators and the way an investigation must be handled. Fox News’s Catherine Herridge explains. “That statement by Josh Earnest has got the back up of our contacts at the FBI and Justice Department for two reasons… They are SUPER PISSED OFF to use a technical term. Number one, Josh Earnest has absolutely no clearance or visibility in the FBI investigation. Number two, they say it really seems part of a troubling pattern from the White House because the president earlier said he did not see any national security implications to the Clinton emails and then we found out he had never been briefed.”

Make no mistake, fellow citizens. The media has already uncovered more than 1500 different occasions where classified material passed across Hillary Clinton’s private (and unsecure) servers. Based simply on this FACT, she is guilty and disqualified from serving in any elected position (especially President) ever again.

243 emails released Friday were classified at some level, bringing the overall number of classified Clinton emails to 1,583. The State Department also announced Friday that it is withholding in full and into perpetuity 22 emails that contain “Top Secret” information — the highest classification category.

However, none of these facts will deter President Obama or the Democrat Party for fighting tooth and nail to stop justice from taking its course. Why? Because the Democrat Party doesn’t care about justice. The Democrat Party doesn’t care about truth. No, the only thing the Democrat Party cares about, as evidenced by the life and career of Hillary Rodham Clinton, is POWER.

Hillary Clinton vs. the Freedom Of Information Act

If Hillary Clinton loses this election, it won’t be because of Bernie Sanders. It won’t be because of Marco Rubio or Jeb Bush or Carly Fiorina. It will be because of a 1966 statute.

The Clintons are street fighters, and over their scandal-plagued years they have mastered outwitting the press, Congress, the Justice Department, even special prosecutors. But the reason Mrs. Clinton isn’t winning her latest scandal is because she faces a new opponent—one she can’t beat: the Freedom of Information Act.

Of all the Clinton email revelations this week, none compared with a filing by the State Department in federal Judge Emmet Sullivan’s court in Washington on Monday. The filing was a response to a FOIA lawsuit brought in March by conservative organization Citizens United. The group demanded documents from Mrs. Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state related to the Clinton Foundation and to the 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya. What the State Department revealed was a testament to the power of FOIA.

Congressional investigators can subpoena documents, but even if after long delays they get them, the investigators must trust that the agency handed over everything. The agency usually doesn’t. Under FOIA, by contrast, the agency is required by law to provide plaintiffs with a complete inventory and broad description of every document it has that pertains to the request—but is withholding. This is known as a Vaughn index. The State Department on Monday handed over its Vaughn index to Citizens United and, boy, are these email descriptions revealing.

We find that the State Department has—but is not releasing—an email chain between then-Clinton Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills and a Clinton Foundation board member about the secretary of state’s planned trip to Africa. We find that the State Department has—but is not releasing—emails between Ms. Mills and foundation staff discussing “invitations to foreign business executives to attend the annual meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative.” We find many undisclosed email chains in which State Department officials talk with Clinton Foundation officials about Bill Clinton speeches and Bill Clinton travel, including to events in North Korea and Congo.

Huma Abedin, a longtime confidante of Mrs. Clinton’s, was somehow allowed to work, simultaneously, at the State Department, the Clinton Foundation and as a consultant to Teneo—a consulting firm run by Clinton loyalist Doug Band. All three of Ms. Abedin’s hats come into play in an undisclosed email exchange regarding a 2012 dinner in Ireland. As the Washington Examiner reported in May, Mrs. Clinton received an award at the dinner from a Clinton Foundation donor. The ceremony was promoted by Teneo. Mrs. Clinton attended in her official capacity as secretary of state. Sort through that.

We already know that the Clinton Foundation continued to take foreign money even while Mrs. Clinton was secretary of state. We now know this was only the start of the entwining. These email summaries show that the Clinton Foundation was the State Department and the State Department was the Clinton Foundation. All one, big, seamless, Clinton-promoting entity. We would know far more if State released the full emails. It is citing personal privacy as one reason not to make some public. In others, it claims the emails “shed no light on the conduct of U.S. Government business.”

Separately, we learn that the State Department is withholding from Citizens United and congressional investigators 14 separate exchanges between department employees regarding Benghazi. Most of these involve discussions of the State Department’s statement about the attack, or its responses to congressional inquiries about the attack. In short, those documents go directly to the focus of Congress’s probe: whether the administration covered up what it knew about the attack or the risks to the four American diplomats who were killed. The State Department is claiming attorney-client privilege for its withholding, since most of the exchanges involve Ms. Mills—who we now find also served as an attorney at the department. The Clintons think of everything.

All told, there are at least 35 FOIA lawsuits pending for Clinton-related email. Nearly everything important we’ve learned has come from those suits. They are why the State Department is releasing emails; why we know they contained classified information; why we know Mrs. Clinton’s aides also used unsanctioned email accounts; why we know that the State Department is covering for Mrs. Clinton.

Which explains why the Justice Department wants the judiciary to “consolidate” the lawsuits, claiming that the State Department is overwhelmed. The real goal is to shut down the process. Consolidation will slow discovery, and the chances of stopping the information flow is better if all the suits come before one judge, who might be friendly, rather than six unpredictable ones. But each organization bringing a suit deserves a separate hearing. It isn’t these groups’ fault that the State Department allowed Mrs. Clinton to go email rogue and now has a mess.

What Democrats are only beginning to understand is that 35 FOIA lawsuits is a guarantee of weekly Clinton email-news bombs. This isn’t ending. The polls keep measuring Mrs. Clinton in theoretical matchups. The only matchup that matters is this one: Clinton vs. FOIA. And FOIA is crushing it.

CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS Hillary Clinton Paid $300,000 for a Speech Lecturing the Middle Class on How They Can Make Ends Meet

Hillary-Clinton2lady Clinton the poorHopefully, her instructions reveal how I can make six figures a speech, which would certainly come in handy.

Can you imagine the hubris of this woman — who has largely disappeared from public view as her “Smart Power” diplomacy initiatives have left the Middle East a boiling cauldron of death, torture, and pain — to dare lecture middle class Americans on making ends meet?

During a speech in Silicon Valley, Clinton, the presumed Democratic presidential nominee in 2016, highlighted the displacement many workers have suffered as new technology has made many jobs obsolete. “The old jobs and careers are either gone or unrecognizable,” Clinton said, according to the Los Angeles Times. “The old rules just don’t seem to apply, and, frankly, the new rules just aren’t that clear. “[If] we want to find our balance again, we have to figure out how to make this new economy work for everyone.”

Clinton also addressed Silicon Valley’s male-centric culture, one factor responsible for a notable gender pay gap in the tech industry and a shortage of women in the field. “We’re going backward in a field that is supposed to be all about moving forward,” the former senator and secretary of state said. Clinton herself is a counterexample: She earned a reported $300,000 for her speech, comparable to what she usually gets and more than all but a few highly prized male speakers (including her husband).

In virtually every way — and as documented by the very agencies he controls — the policies of the current Democrat President have laid waste to “the middle class”.

And that is precisely what Obama and Hillary were taught to do by their ideological mentor, Saul Alinsky.
