HILLARY

Bitter Clingers Hang On

America is suffering through a leadership crisis that threatens to swamp the Ship of State in the shoals of collectivism, cronyism, and corruption.  Our leaders dither around acting as if they use Dilbert as a leadership manual destroying the present for a utopian future that will never come to pass.  They never seem to realize that their progressive collectivist diktats cause the symptoms they are implemented to cure.

Just as the massive collectivization of America under Hoover and FDR made the Depression great so BHO’s stimuli and strangulation regulation has once again proven that you cannot spend your way to prosperity and that taking $10 out of your right hand pocket siphoning off 50% for handling and depositing $5 in your left pocket doesn’t make you any richer.  In other words government doesn’t have anything to give anyone that it doesn’t take from someone else.

We are surrounded by monuments of failed and farcical leadership.

Our Dear Leader who will not utter the term “Radical Islamic Terrorism” tells us with a straight face that more people die in bathtub accidents than in terrorist attacks.  This may be true however, using the analogy when asked about terrorism was obviously devised to make light of a threat that is real and at least worthy of being named and treated as the death dealing attack upon our nation that it is.

One presidential candidate is a pathological liar grasping for power to do what?  Generate even bigger donations from crony capitalists and foreign powers for the Clinton Global Crime Initiative and bigger speaking fees for Bubba.

Speaking of which, what is the difference between Bill Cosby and Bill Clinton?  This isn’t the set up for a joke it is a legitimate question concerning the comparison between a lecherous former president and a lecherous former TV star. Here’s the punchline.  Bill Cosby is being tried by a crusading progressive judge for crimes in the past and Bill Clinton is lionized by crusading progressives in the media as our beloved ex-president who was smart enough to take credit for the laws forced upon him by the Gingrich Congress.  Bill Cosby gets booked and Bill Clinton books another speaking tour.  That’s the difference.

We have another presidential candidate who is selling hope and change under the banner of making America great again.  Having bought a few pigs in a poke in my life I have an uncanny ability to smell a pig when it walks into my living room.  It reminds me of a time when I wanted to refinance a house.  I decided to try one of the big online lenders who dominate a large portion of the click-for-cash market.  I spend a few days filling out forms and speaking with a friendly customer service person.  Then the papers arrived for me to sign and the interest rate was quite a bit higher than we had agreed on.  When I called the friendly customer service person they were still really friendly as they advised, “Oh, that’s just a typo.  Go ahead and sign the papers any way and we’ll change the interest rate later.”  Suddenly a strong pungent odor wafted into my living room and I declined the generous offer to hold the bag.  I will recall this story and smell the wind as I vote this November.

The largest 3rd party and the only one that is going to be on the ballot in all fifty states has a candidate who makes boring feel exciting, people stripping naked at their national convention, promotes open borders, free trade and doesn’t have a prayer.

The best the political elites have to offer is launching a cypher as an independent candidate that they hope will force the election into the House where their golden boy Paul Ryan could engineer a pyric victory of the status quo.

What’s a patriot who believes in limited government, individual freedom, and economic opportunity to do?

Back in April of 2008 before our dear Leader was immaculated he addressed the reaction of the great unwashed in fly-over country by saying, “You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

What was meant as a slur has become a badge of pride to many who proclaim, “I am a bitter clinger.”  Rejecting the racist projection that anyone who does not embrace the globalist gelding of America we Bitter Clingers may cling to our guns (2nd Amendment) and our religion (1st Amendment). We don’t have any antipathy towards those who don’t look like us because to even say that we do is assuming that we all look alike and we don’t.  We’re Americans and as such we look like everyone because we and our ancestors came from everywhere.  To say we’re anti-immigrant is to say you can judge our hearts.  We are actually pro-American and believe we should control our borders, decide who we want to join us as citizens, select the best and brightest and move forward.  And to say we are anti-trade is like saying we don’t shop at Wal-Mart.  We are anti-giveaway trade where we get cheap products at the cost of gutting our industrial base and out-sourcing our jobs.  We want equitable trade, fair trade not we open our borders to the world and we still have to pay tariffs and fees to sell in other countries’ trade.

Trump has uttered the politically-incorrect phrase we bitter clingers believe in America First.  At least he has said it and perhaps now we can come in out of the shadows where the PC police have tried to marginalize us.  The Silent Majority is silent no more.  We want America First.  We want leaders who will restore the Constitution.  We want our country back!

So what do we do?

It is time for the bitter clingers to hang on because we are in for a bumpy ride.  In the next few years we will either step on the yellow brick road that leads to a return to the greatness Americans once took for granted or we will continue our slide down the shoot into the shabby collectivist hellhole the progressives call utopia.

Keep the Faith.  Keep the peace.  We shall overcome.

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.

DNC Chair Squirms When Asked This About the FBI

300x200_debbie-wasserman-schultz
No matter how bad your day may be, at least you don’t have to answer whether your presumptive presidential nominee should cooperate with the FBI’s criminal probe of her.

So be glad you’re not Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who found herself caught on national television between Hillary Clinton and federal law enforcement.

The Washington Examiner reports:

“Those are questions you’d have to ask each of Hillary Clinton and anyone associated with Hillary Clinton,” Schultz said when asked about the possibility on Fox Business. “I’m doing my job as a member of Congress, first and foremost, representing my district, and making sure we can get ready while this primary is unfolding, to make sure we can launch our nominee from Philadelphia,” she said, referencing the site of the upcoming Democratic national convention.

Schultz conveniently neglected to mention she is also Chair of the Democratic National Committee, and is the person in charge of coordinating a billion-dollar nationwide effort to elect Hillary Clinton president. – See more at: http://americanactionnews.com/articles/dnc-chair-squirms-when-asked-this-about-the-fbi#sthash.yap5cCab.dpuf

PROGRESSIVE BROWNSHIRTS

Leftist protesters are making violence and intimidation a regular feature of the American public discourse.

635933233808251557-trump-chicago
Ferguson. Baltimore. Chicago. Everywhere Leftist protesters occupy the streets, those whose opinions are deemed insufficiently progressive are abused, mocked, ridiculed, brutalized and physically menaced. This lawlessness is rapidly becoming the norm; the Obama administration, as well as leading media and cultural figures, need to decry that normalization and act strongly against these thugs now – before the American public square is transformed beyond recognition, and ceases to be an arena for free discourse.

Although this violence and brutalization of political opponents is a new phenomenon in American politics, it has a historical antecedent: the Nazi Brownshirts. In The Coming of the Third Reich, historian Richard J. Evans explains how, in the early days of National Socialist Germany, Stormtroopers (Brownshirts) “organized campaigns against unwanted professors in the local newspapers [and] staged mass disruptions of their lectures.”

To express dissent from Nazi positions became a matter of taking one’s life into one’s hands. The idea of people of opposing viewpoints airing their disagreements in a civil and mutually respectful manner was gone. One was a Nazi, or one was silent (and fearful).

That is just the kind of public arena that the Left has been trying to bring to the United States for years. For decades, they have told us that their political and ideological opponents are not just wrong, but malevolent. In college in the early 1980s, I was taken aback by the obscene, relentless, vicious hatred that the Left directed toward Ronald Reagan – I was at that time entirely sympathetic with their disdain for him, but the frenzy with which they expressed it, their wild furious contempt, shocked me.

And that was nothing compared to what they had in store for George W. Bush. Years ago, the Democratic Party as a whole, along with the entire Leftist establishment, adopted the Alinskyite tactic of ridiculing, mocking and smearing their foes instead of engaging them on the level of ideas. Leftists today routinely portray their opponents as simultaneously stupid and evil, idiotic but crafty; it’s practically a reflex.

The shutdown of Trump’s rally in Chicago, however, takes this one step farther. Trump supporters leaving the arena in Chicago after the Left-fascists had forced cancellation of the Trump rally last Friday experienced that firsthand. AP reported that “the protesters closed in on the building, obstructing most of the exits just as Trump supporters began filing out. The Trump supporters had little choice but to push through the anti-Trump crowds that parted only slightly, yelling, ‘Racists go home!’…Trump supporter Bill Vail said he walked through a gauntlet of protesters who cursed at him as he pushed through holding his 9-year-old daughter’s hand. She cried, he said.”

Commented Vail: “They scream about tolerance, but are being intolerant themselves. That doesn’t make sense.” Yes, it does. Clearly the authoritarian, America-hating Left has decided that the Brownshirts had a good idea: those whose dare to oppose their political views will henceforth be greeted with truncheon and fist. Soon the dissenters will learn their lesson, and accept the Left’s agenda with docility.

Cruz, Rubio and Kasich are already learning to do this, as they demonstrated when they had the audacity, or craven opportunism, to claim that Trump’s rhetoric was at least partially responsible for the shutdown of the Chicago rally. Do they think they will be spared? Do they realize that by charging that Trump bears partial responsibility for the thugs’ actions, they have tacitly validated those actions, implying that under some circumstances, the forcible shutdown of one’s political opponents was acceptable – if, say, that political opponent was prone to saying “outrageous” things?

They don’t realize that once that premise has been accepted, it can be turned on them. And it will be. Now that they’ve apparently agreed that violent thugs can be justified in forcibly silencing those they hate, what will they possibly say when the thugs decide that they, too, have strayed beyond the bounds of what one is allowed to say?

Cruz, Rubio, and Kasich – to say nothing of Clinton, Sanders, and Obama – should have forcefully and unequivocally condemned the Chicago thugs, called for their arrest, and declared their unshakeable support for civility in the public discourse and respect for one’s ideological opponents. Instead, they all contributed to the erosion of that civility and respect, and took the U.S. just a bit closer to becoming a tyranny in which the goons who shut down politically unacceptable rallies work for the state.

Hitler and Himmler and Goebbels, if they’re able to look on from their fiery graves, may be feeling a sense of having, at long last, triumphed.

THIS IS A CRIMINAL EVENT

Hillary emails so secret senior lawmakers can’t read them

by Douglas Ernst

Emails on Hillary Clinton’s “home-brew” email server were so sensitive that senior lawmakers with the highest levels of security clearance must sign additional nondisclosure agreements before viewing them.

Senior members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and other key lawmakers do not have authorization to view intelligence known as “special access programs,” or SAP, on Clinton’s server, a source told Fox News on Thursday.

The former secretary of state has been dogged with new questions on her handling of classified documents since news of the SAP intelligence was reported Tuesday. A Jan. 14 letter from Intelligence Community Inspector General I. Charles McCullough III to lawmakers and officials confirmed SAP intelligence passed through Clinton’s server. The letter was exclusively obtained by Fox.

“To date, I have received two sworn declarations from one [intelligence community] element. These declarations cover several dozen emails containing classified information determined by the IC element to be at the confidential, secret, and top secret/sap levels,” said the IG letter. “According to the declarant, these documents contain information derived from classified IC element sources.”

The Democrat front-runner’s campaign spokesman Brian Fallon responded Wednesday by alleging McCullough, an appointee of President Obama, was part of a “coordinated leak” with Republicans.

“Two months ago, there was a Politico report that directly challenged the finding of this inspector general, and I don’t think he liked that very much,” Fallon told CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota, WND reported. “So I think that he put two Republican senators up to sending him a letter so that he would have an excuse to resurface the same allegations he made back in the summer that have been discredited.”

Clinton told NPR on Thursday that McCullough’s letter was just “another leak” meant to hurt her campaign.

“I’m just going to leave it up to the professionals at the Justice Department because nothing that this says changes the fact that I never sent or received material marked classified,” Clinton said.

Fox chief intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge said Clinton’s comment was a giant red herring.

“It is the content that is classified – not the format it is in,” Herridge said Thursday. “To suggest to people that there is somehow a big rubber stamp with ‘classified’ that’s smacked on every document is completely misleading and that something you only see in the movies. Mrs. Clinton knows better because she had to have special training as secretary of state because she has classification authority.”

Herridge said the State Department final release of Clinton’s emails next week will not include the SAP emails because everything but the date, time-stamp, and subject line would need to be redacted.

Thomas Dupree, a former Justice Department official, told the network that warnings from State Department IT employees and others that Clinton should use an official government account will further complicate her defense.

“If you have a situation where someone was knowingly violating the law and that they knew that what they were doing was prohibited by federal law because other people were saying, ‘You’re violating the law, knock it off,’ and they disregarded that advice and they went ahead, that’s a very difficult case to defend,” Dupree said Thursday.

Approximately 100 FBI special agents are assigned to an investigation that will determine if the former secretary of state violated a subsection of the Espionage Act related to “gross negligence” in handling government documents. That investigation also has a second track, which is to determine whether co-mingling of the Clinton Foundation and State Department business violated public corruption laws.

Followers Of A Mysterious Turkish Islamic Cleric Have Donated Heavily To Hillary’s Campaign And Family Charity

2014-04-29T102625Z_1_CBREA3S0T0600_RTROPTP_4_TURKEY-ERDOGAN-GULEN-e1448226991458
Members of a secretive Turkish Islamic movement that is at the center of a congressional ethics committee investigation have donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and to her family’s charity, a Daily Caller investigation has found.

The largest donation from a leader of the Gulen movement, which is operated from Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains by a moderate Muslim cleric named Fethullah Gulen, came from Recep Ozkan.

A former president of the Gulen-linked Turkish Cultural Center, Ozkan gave between $500,001 and $1,000,000 to the Clinton Foundation in recent months, the charity’s website shows. He also served as a national finance co-chair last year for a pro-Clinton political action committee called Ready PAC.

According to Portland State University political science professor Birol Yesilada, who has studied the Gulen movement for more than 25 years, Ozkan is the New York liaison for the 74-year-old Gulen, who has lived in the Poconos since 1999 when he went into exile after he was accused of attempting to undermine Turkey’s secular regime in order to institute an Islamic state.

Gulen also recently ran afoul of Turkey’s president, Recip Tayyip Erdogan. Erdogan accused Gulenists of operating a “parallel state,” and he reportedly lobbied President Obama last month to extradite Gulen back to Turkey.

By most accounts, the Gulen movement, or Hizmet as it is known to some, is not a radical Islamic movement. Yesilada, who serves as the contemporary Turkish Studies endowed chair at Portland State University, told TheDC in an interview that he has found no evidence of Gulenist ties to any terrorist groups.

But with an estimated 8 million followers and $50 billion in assets, Gulenists do hope to influence both the U.S. and Turkish political system through a worldwide network of businesses, nonprofit organizations, media companies and charter schools, Yesilada and others familiar with the group have claimed.

To help support its diverse interests, Gulen movement supporters in the U.S. have in recent years begun to donate heavily to numerous political campaigns. Gulenists have also paid for hundreds of Turkish “cultural” trips for members of Congress from both sides of the political aisle.

Gulenists’ contributions to congressional campaigns have been known for some time, as Buzzfeed reported last year. Texas Reps. Sheila Jackson-Lee 
13%
and Henry Cuellar 
20%
, both Democrats, are among the biggest benefactors of Gulen contributions.

USA Today reported last month that the House ethics committee has investigated more than 200 trips taken by members of Congress since 2008 that were secretly funded by Gulen groups.

While the ethics committee found that none of the members of Congress who went on the trips violated federal regulations, investigators found evidence suggesting that the Gulenists “may have affirmatively lied to and/or withheld information” about the junkets and falsified disclosures provided to Congress.

The matter has since been referred to the Department of Justice. The FBI has also reportedly investigated whether the Gulen movement’s charter schools — of which there are more than 130 — have taken advantage of the H1-B visa system by hiring Turkish teachers who are kicking back some of their government-paid salaries to the Gulen movement.

Some of the Gulenist campaign donations may have been illegal as well, USA Today reported on Friday. The newspaper reported that New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte 
40%
, a Republican, returned $43,100 in donations she received from 19 Turkish donors with ties to Gulen that she received on April 30, 2014.

Many of those donors who gave to Ayotte could not be located, USA Today reported. Others gave donations that comprised a suspiciously large percentage of their incomes.

In giving back the donations, Ayotte called on other politicians, including Clinton, to return Gulen money. The Clinton campaign did not respond to an email from TheDC asking whether the Democrat would return the contributions.

Clinton has been the biggest recipient of Gulenist donations of any presidential candidate this cycle, federal election records show.

Besides his massive Clinton Foundation donation, Recep Ozkan, who is listed on various campaign finance disclosures as an executive at JIG Corp., Everglobe Partners, and Baharu Inc., gave $25,000 to the pro-Clinton Ready PAC in 2014. He contributed an additional $5,400 to her campaign this year.

As president of the Turkish Cultural Center, Ozkan hosted Clinton at Ramadan celebration dinners in 2006 and 2007 when she was in the Senate.

A photo taken during Clinton’s 2006 appearance shows her posing with Ozkan in front of a banner listing a number of Gulen-affiliated organizations, such as Zaman International Newspaper, the Interfaith Dialogue Center, and two New York-based Gulen charter schools, Brooklyn Amity School and Long Island Amity School.
