The Word Of The Week In Campaign: ‘Bigotry’

Hillary Clinton says Donald Trump has spewed bigoted language throughout the campaign. Trump is calling her a bigot. Never in my memory have Presidential candidates descended into this kind of name calling.

But there may be something to the charge against Clinton. As we noted earlier, she is a Democrat. They have, historically been the party of racism.

But wait, there’s more. Mrs. Clinton reveres one of the most vile racists in the history of American politics, the eugenicist Margaret Sanger.

sanger-clinton

Sanger believed in killing inferior people. She considered blacks to be inferior.

Back in April the Ku Klux Klan claimed to have donated $20,000 to Clinton, saying,

For the KKK, Clinton is our choice,” Will Quigg, a Grand Dragon in a California branch of the KKK, said in April.

“She is friends with the Klan,” Quigg said. “A lot of people don’t realize that. She’s friends with Senator Byrd. He’s been an Exulted Cyclops in the Klan. He’s been King Kleagle.”

Additionally, Breitbart has a list of ten examples of her racism.

Yes, there is evidence that the charges against Clinton have some merit.

“CNN Cancels Dr. Drew’s Show One Week After He Voiced “Grave Concern” For Hillary’s Health”

Listen for yourself. Everything the doctor says makes sense.

CNN has been a strong supporter of Hillary Clinton. By silencing him this way they not only quiet him but they send a strong warning to other CNN employees.

One week ago, board-certified medicine specialist, TV personality and CNN employee Dr. Drew Pinsky broke the mold of conformity, when he said that he is “gravely concerned” about presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s health, pointing out that treatment she is receiving could be the result of her bizarre behaviors.

[…]

Just as stunning as Pinsky’s assessment which promptly went viral and led to the immediate takedown of the original interview webpage by KABC-AM radio, was that it came from an employee of HLN, which is part of the pro-Clinton CNN network.

As such it is probably not surprising that earlier today, just one week later, CNN executive vice president Ken Jautz announced Thursday that “Dr. Drew and I have mutually agreed to air the final episode of his show on September 22.”

How To Prevent Yourself From Raping Someone

This helpful advertisement was placed by the University of Colorado – Denver’s Dean of Students Office. Surprisingly it doesn’t give much advice to women about how to avoid being raped. Taking a different tack they address would-be rapists who they believe are unable to control their rape urges.

It’s Because It Won’t Provide Anti-Gun Propaganda

Also to play down Muslim violence.

“Media silent on surge in Islam-inspired knife attacks”

"Now That's A Knife"

“Now That’s A Knife”

The latest attack on American soil came over the weekend in Roanoke, Virginia, by a 20-year-old man who used a 10-inch butcher knife to attack residents of the Pines apartment complex while shouting, “Allahu Akbar!”

It happened again Monday in Australia, where a 21-year-old British woman, Mia Ayliffe-chung, was hacked to death and two others injured by a Muslim man chanting “Allahu Akbar!” as 30 other tourists looked on in horror.

In Europe the attacks has been an almost weekly occurrence since the influx of 1.5 million Muslim migrants over the last year.

Most of these attacks receive scant coverage in the establishment media, and when they are covered they are glazed over with an obvious attempt to paint them as anything but Islamic in nature.”

Pro-Clinton Pollster Busted For Fiddling Poll Data

I wonder how much of this is going on nationally.

“Monmouth University Pollster Patrick Murray Busted Manipulating Poll Data, then Lying About It…”

patrick-murray-1

Today, Monmouth via Patrick Murray presents a presidential poll of Ohio voters. The actual raw data (pdf available here – see pg, 6 and 7) showed Donald Trump with a lead in the result; however, Murray changed the data through weighting to show Hillary Clinton with a lead.

[…]

Monmouth just announced that Clinton leads Trump 43-39 in Ohio. But Pollster Patrick actually laid out what he did on pages 6 and 7 of the PDF.

He sampled 402 voters. In the unweighted sample, the split was 33.3R/29.3D/35.6I. With that split, Trump leads Clinton 41-39 in Ohio. But Pollster Patrick re-weighted it to a 29R/33D/37I split. Nothing else was re-weighted.”

Mom Leaves Her Kids Home While She Goes To The Store, Gets Arrested

When Susan Terillion decided to go to the market she had two choices, either take her two kids, ages 8 and 9 along or leave them at her Maryland home. She chose to leave them. A busybody found out the kids had been alone for 45 minutes and called the cops. They hauled her in. Who watched them while she was in the slammer?

“Maryland Mom Arrested for Leaving Her 8- and 9-Year-Olds Alone to Go Get Food”

I know that look.  It means, "What kind of stupid crap is this?"

A stranger discovered her children were home alone when the family dogs ran in front of his car and he got out to help the kids secure the pets. The witness called the police to report the incident, stating that the kids had been left alone for 45 minutes. Neither the children or dogs were injured, and the mother was later released on $500 bail.”

“Bernie Sanders Refuses to Make Campaign Finance Information Public”

It’s money from the little people.

Monday, socialist icon Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said that now that he’s no longer running for president, there’s no need for him to reveal his campaign financial information. “It doesn’t make any sense,” he said. Completing such a filing, he continued, would be a “waste of time.” He was supposed to file his current financial information on May 15, but was granted an extension.”

He’s Probably Right

“Trump Slams Clinton Foundation As “Most Corrupt Enterprise In Political History” After Latest Donor Revelations”

Mao Tse Hillary

Mao Tse Hillary

Yesterday Ben Shapiro noted that more than half of her meetings at the State Department were with Clinton Foundation donors. From Zero Hedge there is this Trump Quote:

It is now clear that the Clinton Foundation is the most corrupt enterprise in political history,” Trump said in a statement, reiterating a claim he made earlier in the week. “We’ve now learned that a majority of the non-government people she met with as secretary of state gave money to the corrupt Clinton Foundation. … It was wrong then, and it is wrong now — and the foundation must be shut down immediately.”

Over at Vox Populi they make the observation that Hillary is running as the American Angela Merkel. That sounds about right.

Related: “Clinton asks Romney’s allies for cash to stop Trump”,

“Hillary Clinton’s team is on the market for more millionaires. This time, Mitt Romney’s millionaires.”

After all, it’s still money. It all spends the same, doesn’t it?

PuffHo: “Stop Blue Lives Matter”

This hateful screed was written by a woman named Dr. G.S. Potter. She describes herself as a ‘Community Educator’. She also claims to be the founder of the Strategic Institute for Intersectional Policy. A quick google search finds nothing on her so she may be a fake doctor.

Huffington Post piece is fairly long but it has these gems:

She opposes the proposed Congressional action titled the ‘Blue Lives Matter Act’ with arguments like,

“Police are not people.”

And, “Police union contracts and Law Enforcement Officer’s Bill Of Rights are allowing killer cops to walk free.”

Sheesh.

Janet Yellin

In a Fed Staff working paper released over the weekend titled “Gauging the Ability of the FOMC to Respond to Future Recessions” and penned by deputy director of the division of research and statistics at the Fed, the author concludes that “simulations of the FRB/US model of a severe recession suggest that large-scale asset purchases and forward guidance about the future path of the federal funds rate should be able to provide enough additional accommodation to fully compensate for a more limited [ability] to cut short-term interest rates in most, but probably not all, circumstances.”

Artificial Libertarian Is Actually A Progressive

“Gary Johnson Backs CO2 ‘Fee’ To Fight Global Warming”

gary-johnson-

DailyCaller: Libertarian Party presidential nominee and former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson said he’s no skeptic of man-made global warming and endorsed a “fee” on carbon dioxide emissions.

It’s all part of his “free market” approach to global warming, Johnson told the Juneau Empire in an article published Sunday.

“I do believe that climate change is occurring,” Johnson said. “I do believe that it is man-caused” and “that there can be and is a free-market approach to climate change.”

Johnson’s “free market” approach to global warming includes “a fee — not a tax, he said — placed on carbon” to make those who emit the greenhouse gas pay the supposed cost of their actions, according to the Juneau Empire.”

Germans Get Into Prepping

Even if you don’t live in Germany this is a darned good idea. But only there does the government mandate it.

“Germans Told to Stockpile Food and Water in Case of Attack or Catastrophe”

Angela-Merkel

As Germany’s Angela Merkel faces increasing pressure regarding her nation’s security, the German government has issued a civil defense report addressing the role the German people are to play.

Reuters reports:

For the first time since the end of the Cold War, the German government plans to tell citizens to stockpile food and water in case of an attack or catastrophe, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung newspaper reported on Sunday.

Germany is currently on high alert after two Islamist attacks and a shooting rampage by a mentally unstable teenager last month. Berlin announced measures earlier this month to spend considerably more on its police and security forces and to create a special unit to counter cyber crime and terrorism.

“The population will be obliged to hold an individual supply of food for ten days,” the newspaper quoted the government’s “Concept for Civil Defence” – which has been prepared by the Interior Ministry – as saying.”

It’s The Money, Stupid

A few people in the media are beginning to notice that the major news outlets are biased. They must be dim-witted or otherwise slow. The average reader or viewer has seen it for years. Here is an article in the New York Post. The writer tells us that he has noticed the bias – finally.

Wealthy progressives are paying for stories favorable to their pet candidates. The media people are taking the money and giving them what they want.

“American journalism is collapsing before our eyes”

hillary-soros

The largest broadcast networks — CBS, NBC and ABC — and major newspapers like The New York Times and Washington Post have jettisoned all pretense of fair play. Their fierce determination to keep Trump out of the Oval Office has no precedent.

Indeed, no foreign enemy, no terror group, no native criminal gang, suffers the daily beating that Trump does. The mad mullahs of Iran, who call America the Great Satan and vow to wipe Israel off the map, are treated gently by comparison.”

There must be something about living in New York City or Washington DC that insulates writers from the reality the rest of Americans see. When they finally see it they are shocked – shocked, I say.

Another One Of Your Betters Wants To Tell You How To Live

A writer named Karen Heller tries the ‘Holier than thou’ position on for size but fails. “We don’t live with air conditioning. (Don’t pay any attention to the window air conditioner in the bedroom.)” I mean, if you’re going to try to come off as a martyr maybe you should actually die or something.

“I don’t need air conditioning, and neither do you”

My family lives without air con­ditioning, except for one antique, ­semi-comatose window unit that “cools” the bedroom to approximately the same temperature as Dallas at dusk.

[…]

There are people among you, friends even, who live without artificial cooling during what are affectionately known as the dog days of summer. One-third of American households don’t have air conditioning, according to the Energy Department. Many of those, of course, can’t afford it, but people don’t like AC for a variety of reasons beyond cost: environmental, aesthetic, nostalgic, social and cultural.

And, yes, to humble-brag, which I may be doing right now, about our greater tolerance, lower carbon footprint and puny electric bills, which are half the temperature outside.”

Humble-brag? Now there’s an invented term. Also, of course there are people who live without AC. Some people don’t live in the south.

Sims and Dacus

On Thursday, police charged 18-year-old Thomas Sims with capital murder in the case, meaning that he could potentially receive the death penalty. He is being held on no bond, according to AL.com. It is unclear if he has a lawyer or if he has entered a plea.

Birmingham Police Lt. Sean Edwards told AL.com that it appears Dacus and Sims got into an argument, before the teenage doused him with gasoline and lit him on fire.

“It’s disheartening to see someone this young go to this level of violence,” Edwards said. “To me, what he did to that elderly gentleman is evil at its finest.”

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”

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.”

I’m Surprised Maduro Waited This Long

This is so typical of socialists. They are wrong on every count and they are wrong on guns. Disarming the law-abiding public, in effect making the entire city of Caracas a gun-free zone will not make citizens safer. It will make the gangs stronger. As the article says, they are getting the guns and ammunition from corrupt police. That will not stop.

Corrupt cops can be gang members, too, especially now that victims can’t defend themselves.

“Venezuela crushes 2,000 guns in public, plans registry of bullets”

Venezuela Guns 2_0

(Reuters) – Venezuelan police crushed and chopped up nearly 2,000 shotguns and pistols in a Caracas city square on Wednesday, as the new interior minister relaunched a long-stalled gun control campaign in one of the world’s most crime-ridden countries.

Interior Minister Nestor Reverol said the event marked the renewal of efforts to disarm Venezuelans, through a combination of seizures and a voluntary program to swap guns for electrical goods.

Venezuela has the world’s second highest murder rate and the street gangs that plague its poor neighborhoods have become increasingly heavily armed in recent years, at a time when a deep recession has reduced resources available to police.

Gangs often get weapons from the police, either by stealing them or buying them from corrupt officers, experts say.”

Venezuela has the second-highest murder rate but Caracas has the worst.

“It’s Snowden Junior”

“Former NSA Employees Say NSA Hack Is The Work Of A “Rogue Insider””

1471462802266505

In an interview with Motherboard, titled “Former NSA Staffers: Rogue Insider Could Be Behind NSA Data Dump” an anonymous insider has said that the chances of a hacker remotely breaking into the National Security Agency’s systems are very unlikely. Despite accusations that the leak is Russia’s meddling, the data dropped online under the name “the Shadow Brokers” would have required someone with the ability to access the NSA’s server, the former NSA employee told the news outlet.

As Motherboard puts it, an insider could have stolen the NSA hacking tools from the NSA, in a similar fashion to how former NSA contractor Edward Snowden stole an untold number of the spy agency’s top secret documents. This theory is being pushed by someone who claims to be, himself, a former NSA insider.”

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.”

From Robert Reich
