“How is this not classified?”

This is a quote from Huma Abedin Weiner. She said it when she learned that Clinton’s e-mail system was getting mail from President Obama using a fake name or pseudonym.

Hillary Clinton has maintained that she did not send or receive classified documents via her personal, unsecured, server. The fact that she was getting stuff from the President puts the lie to that.

humahillary2

President Barack Obama used a pseudonym in email communications with Hillary Clinton and others, according to FBI records made public Friday.

The disclosure came as the FBI released its second batch of documents from its investigation into Clinton’s private email server during her tenure as secretary of state.

The 189 pages the bureau released includes interviews with some of Clinton’s closest aides, such as Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills; senior State Department officials; and even Marcel Lazar, better known as the Romanian hacker “Guccifer.”

In an April 5, 2016 interview with the FBI, Abedin was shown an email exchange between Clinton and Obama, but the longtime Clinton aide did not recognize the name of the sender.

“Once informed that the sender’s name is believed to be pseudonym used by the president, Abedin exclaimed: ‘How is this not classified?'” the report says.”

Why Isn’t He Being Charged With Terrorism?

And what about the bombs? He’s being charged with attempted murder for shooting at police but not for setting and detonating bombs? Luckily no one was killed but at least twenty-nine were injured. Isn’t that attempted murder as well? Where the hell is BATFE? The E in BATFE stands foe explosives.

Is this lizard being protected by the oval office?

Ahmad Khan Rahami, an Afghan immigrant, was arrested in Linden, N.J., after law enforcement officials discovered him sleeping in a bar doorway. He is being held on a $5.2 million bail and remains hospitalized for injuries sustained during the shootout with police, which left two cops wounded.

The Justice Department has not indicated if it will file charges against Rahami.”

Why Do Democrats Officially Support The ‘Black Lives Matter’ Movement?

obama-blm

Really, why do they do it? What’s in it for the national party to support a violent movement that is based on lies?

Hillary Clinton meets with BLM activists

Hillary Clinton meets with BLM activists

Certainly, Democrats have never shied away from telling untruths but the whole movement was started with the, “Hands Up – Don’t Shoot”, meme after Michael Brown shooting in Missouri. Brown never put his hands up and said, “Don’t Shoot”. Instead he tried to use his superior size and strength to take a police officer’s pistol away from him. He went so far as to corner the cop in his car while trying to disarm him. That stupid move cost him his life. In a struggle like that there is no way to know who will be the victor. In this case the police man was able to reach his gun and shoot his attacker.

Another falsehood that supports the ‘Black Lives Matter’ cause is the belief that cops are racist and systematically hunting down black men and killing them. While there have been instances in the past where an individual law man did commit murder the notion that the problem is rampant and common is false.

blm-am-i-next

One of the results of this affirmation of a bunch of untruths some black people have become violent. They are taking the false narrative as a reason to attack white people.

12-white-bodies

Is this what Democrats want? Are they engineering violent responses from the black community?

Yes.

Progressives desire a central world government. That can only happen if the existing United States is destroyed. They have control of education, the bureaucracy, much of finance, and are keeping millions of Americans idle and dependent with payments from the central treasury. Those idle, dependent Americans are the ‘Civilian Force’ that Barack Obama called for during his 2008 campaign.

His words and actions have given them strength and his supporters are giving them money. The whole movement is based on lies and emotions. What does Black Lives Matter bring to Democrats?

Bomber To 911 Operator: “There Will Be More”…

… And sure enough there are. The police were using a robot to try to disarm the device when it went off. It’s a good thing they no longer make men put on padding to do it.

Don’t expect this to be the last, either.

The first Presidential candidate to come out with a plan to reduce these attacks will pull away into a strong lead, even if the plan is incomplete. Americans worry about the possibility of terror attacks. We worry about our safety and the safety of others – even those we don’t know.

Improvised explosive devices are a cowardly but effective method to induce fear into the populace.

President Obama and his alter-ego Hillary Clinton will take no effective stance. These attacks are done by members of the Islamic cult. They won’t say so. Instead they want to tell people it’s home-grown terror from Tea-Party types. That has never happened and will not but they have said it long enough that many on the left, including media types, believe it. The first candidate to say out loud what Americans know to be true – that it’s radical, hateful Muslims, and come up with the germ of an idea to address it will win in November. Americans are not stupid. Except for the few left-wing haters we all know who is doing this and why.

“Bomb Explodes At New Jersey Train Station As Police Discover Five Explosive Devices”

One day after an IED exploded in a busy midtown Manhattan sidewalk, an explosion took place at a train station in Elizabeth, New Jersey, after a suspicious backpack was found. The detonation was “not controlled”, the city’s mayor said. Meanwhile, the FBI has questioned five people in connection with Saturday’s Manhattan blast. Elizabeth’s mayor, Christian Bollwage, said the blast occurred when authorities were trying to “disarm” the backpack, and that the explosion was not controlled.”

For example, consider the case of Department of Homeland Security czar Jeh Johnson. Johnson is a career public servant. Yet he was able to come up with over half a million dollars in cash to donate to the DNC — and then “feigned disbelief” when he got the job of leading the Homeland Security agency.”

And it looks like he has connections to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Obama’s ‘Sternly Worded Message’ To Pyong Yang

C’mon, now. If I were worried about North Dakota would I send a couple bombers to fly over South Dakota? And how many times have US planes, including bombers, flown over South Korea? According to Military Bases.com there are at least twelve US military bases in South Korea.

C’mon, paper tiger. This is not a threat, even if you say it is.

“US flies bombers over South Korea in show of force against North”

b1-bomber-escorts

OSAN AIR BASE, South Korea – The United States on Tuesday sent nuclear-capable supersonic bombers streaking over ally South Korea in a show of force meant to cow North Korea after its recent nuclear test and also to settle rattled nerves in the South.

The B-1B bombers, escorted by U.S. and South Korean jets, were seen by an Associated Press photographer as they flew over Osan Air Base, which is 75 miles from the border with North Korea, the world’s most heavily armed. The bombers were likely to return to Andersen Air Force Base in Guam, without landing in South Korea.”

“Religious freedom’ is just a code word for intolerance”

This outrageous statement came from the Chairman of the United States Civil Rights Commission, Martin Castro. He is showing himself to be a good little progressive, spouting the anti-American, religion hating language one would expect from the man who appointed him, Barack Obama.

This is the kind of rhetoric that is designed to divide Americans into separate groups that hate each other, much the same way that Obama has dealt with the racial divide.

Martin Castro

Martin Castro

Apparently, “religious freedom” and “religious liberty” are no longer constitutional rights guaranteed by the First Amendment, but “code words” for intolerance. Or so says the chairman of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights.

The idea that the First Amendment is about intolerance helps explain Democrats’ recent efforts to weaken it in Congress. He said the concept of religious freedom is really about “Christian supremacy” and should be governed by anti-discrimination laws.

Chairman Martin Castro’s remarks were included in a report released Thursday titled: “Peaceful Coexistence: Reconciling Nondiscrimination Principles with Civil Liberties.” A link to the actual report on the USCCR’s website is currently broken.”

The House of Representatives passed a bill allowing families of 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia.

The Senate drafted legislation in April. Saudi Arabia threatened economic retaliation if the U.S. passed this bill and the Obama Administration pressured both parties not to proceed with the bill, even though families and victims from 9/11 voiced their approval for the legislation.”

Are We Sending Iran Completed Nuclear Weapons Next?

It is mind-boggling that our leaders have done something like this. But it is not surprising from the President who promised the most transparent administration ever – and then hid the details of everything. This is not just enabling the third world war. He has been facilitating it.

Nuclear weapons in the hands of Iran’s Mullahs will bring nuclear war.

“Iran May Have Received as Much as $33.6 Billion in Cash, Gold Payments From U.S.”

zarif-kerry-1

Iran may have received an additional $33.6 billion in secret cash and gold payments facilitated by the Obama administration between 2014 and 2016, according to testimony provided before Congress by an expert on last summer’s nuclear agreement with Iran.

Between January 2014 and July 2015, when the Obama administration was hammering out the final details of the nuclear accord, Iran was paid $700 million every month from funds that had previously been frozen by U.S. sanctions.”

Ron Paul, Crazy Old Man Or Does He Raise Legitimate Concerns?

I vote for legitimate. If this is true it has been so for some time but has become stronger and more insidious in the last seven or eight years. There is no doubt that the various departments of our government have assumed powers under Barack Obama that they never enjoyed before.

It makes no difference who is put into the White House. The bureaucracy is tainted and will not be changed.

“Ron Paul: Vote All You Want, The Secret Government Won’t Change”

ron paul
In a recent episode of his web show, the Liberty Report, Ron Paul discussed the Department of Homeland Security’s decision last month to take a more active role in U.S. elections. Secretary Jeh Johnson said he was “considering whether elections should be classified as ‘critical infrastructure,’ affording them the same kinds of enhanced protections that the banking system and the electrical grid receive,” POLITICO reported.

Jeh Johnson

Jeh Johnson

The elections don’t matter. This is a ritual that we go through,” Paul observed last week. Instead, he referenced a seemingly omnipotent power much more influential than the ‘will of the people.’

“My belief is that the control is the Deep State, and people have to realize that,” he said.

Michael Lofgren, a former Republican congressional aide, has written extensively on the Deep State and describes it as “a hybrid entity of public and private institutions ruling the country according to consistent patterns in season and out, connected to, but only intermittently controlled by, the visible state whose leaders we choose.”

Lofgren continues:

The Deep State does not consist of the entire government. It is a hybrid of national security and law enforcement agencies: the Department of Defense, the Department of State, the Department of Homeland Security, the Central Intelligence Agency and the Justice Department.”

Should The United States Interfere In Syria?

The force that calls itself Islamic State is terrorizing the people. There are mass graves and the young women are being sold and traded as sex dolls. IS has gotten stronger because the United States has pulled out, leaving enough arms, vehicles, and ammunition to wage a good-sized war.

We know the Islamic State is being supported by Iran and the US President is giving them billions of dollars in cash. At this time we are not interfering. We are helping the IS. Should we interfere as Mr. Trumps says we should? How do we keep the IS out of the United States? Or can we?

Obama Wants Iran To Have Nukes

If he didn’t why would he do this?

“U.S. Transferred $1.3 Billion More in Cash to Iran After Initial Payment”

pallet-omoney

First $400 million coincided with Iran’s release of American prisoners and was used as leverage, officials have acknowledged.

The Obama administration followed up a planeload of $400 million in cash sent to Iran in January with two more such shipments in the next 19 days, totaling another $1.3 billion, according to congressional officials briefed by the U.S. State, Treasury and Justice departments.”

From the Wall Street Journal

As a result the State Department says it was okay. “State Dept: We Have ‘Nothing to Be Ashamed About’ After Iran Cash Payment”

State Department spokesman Mark Toner said Wednesday that there is nothing for the Obama administration to be ashamed about after it paid Iran $1.7 billion in cash.

Fox News’ James Rosen asked Toner how the payment was revealed publicly and the criticism the State Department and Obama administration have received since then. Toner answered by boasting about the agreements the United States has made with Iran, including the nuclear deal, the release of American hostages, and the $1.7 billion payment to the Iranian government.”

Jonathan Hoenig: “Why Hillary Has My Vote”

Jonathan Hoenig at Capitalist Pig writes an argument how a free market capitalist can support Hillary over Trump:

I start with the premise that the only thing that can save the country is capitalism.

Yet sixty-three percent of Democrats and 49 percent of Republicans view Wall Street as detrimental to the economy, as reported by Daily Wire. Barely half view global free trade positively, according to Pew. The majority of young people now reject capitalism outright.

Reversing the trend will require decades of education. For Americans, capitalism remains the unknown ideal.
In this context, Donald Trump’s business credentials are exactly what makes him so dangerous. In the minds of voters, Trump represents capitalism. But as was pointed out in this space five years ago, Donald Trump is explicitly anti-capitalist on issues ranging from taxes to anti-trust to trade.

Consider that the most catastrophic financial collapse in U.S. history came under President Herbert Hoover, the Republican businessman who enacted trade restrictions to “bring back jobs.”

What followed wasn’t just economic misery, but the subsequent election of Franklin D. Roosevelt and the institutionalized welfare that hasn’t stopped metastasizing since.

In effect, what worries me most isn’t Trump, but what comes after Trump. “We tried free markets under Donald Trump,” they’ll say. “Look how it failed!”

I respect Jonathan Hoenig and his steadfast free market positions. He’s on FoxBusiness frequently and he always takes positions that align almost perfectly with Revo editorial positions on economics. And while I personally think that my arm would self-amputate before it would allow me to pull the handle for Hillary, his broad point about how Clinton really could be better for this country’s future than Trump, is not crazy talk.

Hillary is not friendly to capitalism. This must be made clear. But that’s precisely the point. She is not a capitalist figurehead. Whatever bullshit she might do in her 4-8 years, she won’t be seen as a capitalist representative, and capitalism won’t be seen to have failed as much as it is Hillary and her policies failing.

On the surface, Trump is “A Capitalist Tycoon.” He is the Monopoly Guy. He owns a show where he hires people on the basis of business acumen and talent, and brutally fires people that don’t make the cut, to the delight of the crowd. He makes no apologies for being rich from his business dealings, and in fact revels in it. He should be, by all rights, the poster boy for Capitalism. And he will be.

But make no mistake that this is all a thin veneer over Trump’s actual instincts. He is wearing Capitalism like a skin-suit.

Trump carries with him a host of positions–both current and past–that praise economic protectionism, high tariffs, economic isolationism, utilizing lawfare rather than voluntary financial persuasion, etc. And the fear is that despite his outward appearance of a capitalist, he would actually implement many non-capitalist policies that would be harmful. And when those policies bring the pain, people will look for a scapegoat.

That scapegoat will almost certainly be Capitalism (and those out there that the public views as Capitalists). This is despite the fact that the things that brought ruin weren’t capitalist policies or capitalists in the first place. But in the heat of the moment, the public won’t care about such details. They’re not going to wonk out to analyze the details. They’re going to use their reptilian brain and not much more.

Ultimately, I cannot vote for Hillary because she’s an abominable human, and I cannot place my stamp of approval upon a person I believe to be so. If only for my own conscience. But I believe it is important to see the non-crazy argument for a capitalist to support Hillary over Trump.

What If There Were No Presidential Election?

“A Candidate’s Death Could Delay or Eliminate the Presidential Election”

American democracy would break new ground if Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump left a presidential ticket vacancy before the Nov. 8 general election. GETTY IMAGES

American democracy would break new ground if Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump left a presidential ticket vacancy before the Nov. 8 general election. GETTY IMAGES

The presidential election could be delayed or scrapped altogether if conspiracy theories become predictive and a candidate dies or drops out before Nov. 8. The perhaps equally startling alternative, if there’s enough time: Small groups of people hand-picking a replacement pursuant to obscure party rules.

The scenarios have been seriously considered by few outside of the legal community and likely are too morbid for polite discussion in politically mixed company. But prominent law professors have pondered the effects and possible ways to address a late-date vacancy.”

To which we get cries from some quarters of, “Four more years!’

The Real Revo May Come To An End

The internet has worked because there is little or no censorship. Opposing views as well as friendly ones are available here. That’s because it is controlled by the freest country in the world. If control is turned over to a multi-national group like this it will become less free, more complex, and more expensive. Access will require a payment of some kind in order to pay for the managers.

“America to hand off Internet in under two months”

internet

The Department of Commerce is set to hand off the final vestiges of American control over the Internet to international authorities in less than two months, officials have confirmed.

[…]

The move means the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority, which is responsible for interpreting numerical addresses on the Web to a readable language, will move from U.S. control to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, a multistakeholder body based in Los Angeles that includes countries such as China and Russia.”

As Surely As Night Follows Day – Here Come The Calls For Socialized Medicine

The entire Obamacare bill was designed to do this. It required health insurers to cover pre-existing medical conditions, limited what they could get for premiums, allowed people to sign up for insurance after they were sick, and thus ensured that insurance companies would stop offering healthcare coverage. When that happened there would be no option but single-payer socialized medicine. It was brilliant and the insurance companies fell for it.

Now that the small man has called for single payer expect Hillary Clinton to do so as well.

“Aetna Shows Why We Need a Single Payer”

Bill Clinton, Robert Reich

Bill Clinton, Robert Reich

The best argument for a single-payer health plan is the recent decision by giant health insurer Aetna to bail out next year from 11 of the 15 states where it sells Obamacare plans.

Aetna’s decision follows similar moves by UnitedHealth Group, the nation’s largest insurer, and Humana, one of the other giants.

All claim they’re not making enough money because too many people with serious health problems are using the Obamacare exchanges, and not enough healthy people are signing up.

The problem isn’t Obamacare per se. It’s in the structure of private markets for health insurance – which creates powerful incentives to avoid sick people and attract healthy ones. Obamacare is just making the structural problem more obvious.”

Hard To Imagine Protesting This

“Black incarceration hasn’t been this low in a generation”

Empty Prison Cell

Empty Prison Cell

A 23 percent decline in the black male imprisonment rate and a 49 percent decline in the black female imprisonment rate would seem to warrant some serious attention. But if you point out to the average person or even a seasoned criminologist that the United States is at a more than 20-year low in the black incarceration rate, you are likely to be met with stunned silence. Why?”

incarcerated black men

The big question is, given these data, why do Black Lives Matter, President Obama, and most black leaders contend that black men are being imprisoned at a greater rate than ever before? As the Washington Post writer shows us that is a lie. The lie is being used to enrage people and turn them to violence.

Treason?

CENTCOM stands for the United States Central Command.

“Treason! CENTCOM’s Manipulated Data Was Ordered by the White House Itself”

This-Seat-is-Taken-Jarrett

CENTCOM manipulated and deleted data to present a positive picture of the battle against Isis and al Qaeda according to a report by the House released on Thursday. Does anyone believe it wasn’t ordered by the president and that he was kept in the dark? A general now says that it came from the president himself.

Retired Brigadier General Tony Tata appeared on Fox News with host former Governor Mike Huckabee this evening and revealed that his well-placed sources told him someone from the Office of National Intelligence who meets regularly with the president commanded a senior official in CENTCOM to quit producing products of record that showed negative intelligence that didn’t fit the narrative of the Obama administration.

The administration ordered the cooking of the books, the General said. The president wants the JV tale out in the public domain.

The General also said people are being punished for doing their job.

General Tata said it goes all the way to Barack Obama, not simply White House officials.”

“What Do You Think?”

From Wirecutter:

cropped-Ken-III-Wolverine2

I had to take my vehicle to the mechanic the other day for service. The Service Manager, Pete, gave me a ride home and on the way he told me his theory about the upcoming election and the next four years of U.S. government.

At first I thought it a bit far fetched. But as I listened to him it began to make sense, scary sense…
“I believe that Hillary Clinton will win the election in November,” Pete began. “Then, sometime between November and January, Hillary will be indicted. The IRS is now investigating the Clinton Foundation and the whole e-mail thing isn’t over yet.”

“Once under indictment she won’t be able to assume the Office of the President in January. Tim Kaine, who will not actually be the Vice President because neither he nor Hillary have been inaugurated, cannot assume the Presidency.”
“The Speaker of the House can’t move up to it because there is already a sitting President and Vice President. So President Obama, in an Executive Order citing “emergency situation,” gives himself another four years in office is the only way possible.”

Pete believes Obama has been planning this for a while now, knowing he has enough on Hillary to indict her. Had the Attorney General indicted her based on evidence from the FBI this plan wouldn’t have worked because the DNC would have quickly come up with another candidate.”

I’ve Been Asking Myself This, Too

“If Obama cancels the presidential election, who will stop him?”

“I’m being forced out.”

From Lloyd Marcus at American Thinker:

Many of you have heard the conspiracy theory that Black Lives Matter and other paid thug protest groups will cause so much chaos in the streets that Obama will use it as an excuse to cancel the presidential election and remain president. I do not think that will happen.

However, I asked my wife Mary a rhetorical question: “If Obama did cancel the election, who would stop him?” Folks, the terrifying answer which we all know is “no one.” For eight years, even after we gave Republicans control of the House and Senate, the GOP has allowed Obama to break the law and ignore the Constitution at will. Congress has ignored their power of the purse and funded everything Obama has decreed. Senate majority leader Republican Mitch McConnell said that no matter what Obama does, impeachment is off the table.”
