Of Course She Did

She knows her limitations. Or, at least her handlers do. Hillary Rodham Clinton doesn’t even give a prepared speech well. She is completely unprepared to deal with challenges from either Bernie or the moderators. Her team would not have control over either one so she can not risk it.

Clinton knows what she does poorly and what she does best. She will not allow herself to be placed in a position where she must deal with actual Questions.

Bernie Sanders Shows His Vindictive Side

Not saying he doesn’t have a right to do this. It just shows what his opponents can expect.

In reality, this is not unexpected. The Democrat National Committee is headed by Lil’ Debbie. The DNC has chosen Hillary Clinton as their Presidential nominee and nothing, not even voter preference, is going to stop them from achieving that goal. Bernie and his supporters don’t like it. They say it’s, “Unfair”. He has decided to do something about it. This is actually a pretty good tactic.

Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign has begun raising money for Democratic National Committee chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s primary opponent, threatening to further divide Democrats even as Party leaders hope to unite the Party behind Hillary Clinton.

Sanders spoke out against Wasserman Schultz in an interview that aired Sunday on CNN, during which he said he “clearly” favored her opponent, Tim Canova. Now, he’s wading in with an active role against her.”

‘Imagine’ – The Dream Of Utopia

John Lennon wrote the song. In it he put all his dreams of a perfect world. He dreamed of a life without God or Satan, a world without violence or killing, a world without hunger or possessions. He dreamed of a perfect world without competition.

He was wrong – or stoned. His dream forgot the human emotions of lust, greed, and avarice. He thought people could become perfect, but we can’t.

How many of you know the words to his song? All of them?

“Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man”

It has become an anthem for socialists and other layabouts. But every time, without exception, his method has been tried it has resulted in hunger and death. In some cases the death toll was in the millions. In every case some strong man has co-opted the dream and turned it into a nightmare under his control.

communist_genocide

Today we are seeing the beginning of another nightmare in Venezuela.

emptyShelvesVenezuela

The people there have begun eating street animals and some are stealing from others. As a result, gangs of vigilantes are dispatching hard justice on the thieves. The people are angry. Soon the state will move to stop the people. Then the killing will start in earnest. Mr. Maduro has failed but he doesn’t want to release his control.

Again, every single time Lennon’s dream has been tried it has failed. But some people still ‘Imagine’. They are fools.

“Ted Cruz just crushed Donald Trump in Washington State election of GOP delegates”

A little early but it looks like it’s official.

GettyImages-530277196

Washington State holds its Republican primary on Tuesday, and with one candidate left in the race, there’s not too much drama about the outcome. But in a twist — and what would the 2016 race be without a twist? — 40 of Washington’s 41 delegates selected Saturday to attend the Republican National Convention in July are Ted Cruz partisans. Cruz supporters outnumbered Donald Trump supporters at the state GOP convention in Pasco, and they were better organized, pushing through the Cruz slate of delegates over occasional protests from Trump backers, who noted repeatedly that Cruz is no longer in the race.”

I Can’t Understand Why People Like These Talk To Washington Post Reporters

They should know that the ‘Reporter’ will consider them the enemy.

From the Washington Post:

“Primed To Fight The Government”

Kalley Soper, 4, watches sister Courtney, 16, shoot under the supervision of their father, B.J. Soper, founder of the Central Oregon Constitutional Guard.

REDMOND, Ore. — B.J. Soper took aim with his AR-15 semiautomatic rifle and fired a dozen shots at a human silhouette target. Soper’s wife and their 16-year-old daughter practiced drawing pistols. Then Soper helped his 4-year-old daughter, in pink sneakers and a ponytail, work on her marksmanship with a .22-caliber rifle.

Deep in the heart of a vast U.S. military training ground, surrounded by spent shotgun shells and juniper trees blasted to shreds, the Central Oregon Constitutional Guard was conducting its weekly firearms training.

“The intent is to be able to work together and defend ourselves if we need to,” said Soper, 40, a building contractor who is an emerging leader in a growing national movement rooted in distrust of the federal government, one that increasingly finds itself in armed conflicts with authorities.”

“Ten Arabic Words: Bracken’s Challenge to National Security Professionals”

Oh, my. Bracken hits the nail on the head. The gauntlet has been thrown.

“Ten Arabic Words: A challenge to national security professionals engaged in the Global War On Terror”

constitutionshahada

If you are a politically-correct bliss-ninny with a coexist bumper sticker slapped on the back of your Subaru, and you don’t have the slightest clue what the following ten words mean, then this essay is not meant for you. You are excused.

dawah, dhimmi, hijra, jizya, kafir, shaheed, shariah, takfir, taqiyya, ummah

But if you are a national security professional, senior military officer or political leader involved in any aspect of the “Global War On Terror,” AKA “Countering Violent Extremism,” these are ten words that should already be a part of your working vocabulary. If you can’t readily discuss their meaning, significance, and relationships, then you are worse than a fool, you are disgrace to your office and a danger to your country.

[…]

If you don’t know how to determine when a Muslim suicide bomber is a shaheed and when he is a terrorist according to the shariah, then you are as dangerous to our national safety as a North Atlantic ship captain who believes that icebergs are a fairy tale concocted by conspiracy theorists. Full speed ahead, Captain Smith!”

This is quite a rant. You can read it in its entirety at Gates of Vienna.

Another Good Reason To Avoid Target Stores

There is an active movement to boycott Target for political reasons. Even if you don’t support boycotts you might consider staying away from Target because of stuff like this.

It’s no wonder the store chain is suffering greatly reduced sales, causing their share price to plummet.

Target Suing Man Who Saved Teen Girl From Stabbing In Store”

Target-ap-640x480

When she was sixteen, Allison Meadows was shopping in an East Liberty, Pennsylvania, Target store when Leon Walls rushed into the outlet and stabbed her.

With the assistance of surveillance video, Walls was convicted of attempted homicide for his attack on the girl.

The only reason the girl did not suffer more injuries is because Michael Turner interceded and, along with several other men, confronted Walls. Turner himself chased Walls out the store with a baseball bat.

[…]

According to the company’s filing, Target says Turner and several others chased the suspect toward the store’s entrance after the attack on the girl. The store insists Turner put other shoppers at risk with his actions.”

Oh, I’ll Bet Hillary Is Yelling Now

The poor little entitled girl is unhappy. A third-rate, seventy-something year old socialist from Vermont is making things hard for her. Harrrrd. He actually thinks he has a chance at the nomination. He’s actually going for it instead of dropping out and turning over his pitiful bundle of delegates to the Queen In Waiting.

Bernie doesn’t know what he’s doing. He doesn’t know who he’s messing with. He better watch his back.

“Clinton fury with Sanders grows”

hillary pissed

In public, Hillary Clinton’s aides and allies have kept their anger checked, decrying the rowdy outbursts at Nevada’s state convention last weekend but saying they believe Sanders will ultimately do the right thing by helping to unite the Democratic Party.

Behind the scenes, however, they are seething that statements by the Vermont senator are just making matters worse by further alienating his supporters from Clinton, the front-runner for the party’s presidential nomination.

The continued combat on the left is also complicating Clinton’s efforts to fully turn her attention to presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump, who is reveling in the Democratic feuding.

“This is the worst-case scenario and the one people feared the most,” said one Clinton ally and former Clinton aide.

“Unfortunately, he’s choosing the path of burning down the house,” the ally said. “He continues with character attacks against Hillary. He continues with calling the Democratic Party corrupt, and he not only risks damaging Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party but he’s currently doing it.”

“Clinton Promises to Attack Gun Owners on Her “Very First Day” in Office”

When trying to decide whether Hollary Clinton or Donald Trump would be worse for the country, factor in the differences in their positions on gun control. And remember, gun control is not about guns. It’s about control of the people.

“I really support everything President Obama said he would do through regulation on guns but we’re going to start the very first day and tackle the gun lobby to try to reduce the outrageous number of people who are dying from gun violence in our country.”

Hillary-Clinton

Later, the candidate spoke of her party’s chances of taking control of the Senate, stating,

The Democrats have decided they will be led by Chuck Schumer and Chuck Schumer has been one of the most effective legislators in taking on the gun lobby. He and I worked together to get the Brady bill passed way back in my husband’s administration. So I think that it’s the kind of issue you have to start early, you have to work on it every day and we need to make it a voting issue.”

‘Crazy Scenario’

“The Crazy Scenario Were Ted Cruz Is The GOP Nominee”

cruz

Since announcing his candidacy, the media and most pundits have been waiting for Trump to get wrapped up in a scandal or meltdown right before our eyes. It didn’t happen, at least not in a way that could hurt Trump. For Cruz to get the nomination, something bad will have to be revealed about Trump. A serious scandal, complete public meltdown, hidden camera recording of him saying or doing something really bad… sadly there are plenty of options that would fulfill this. We’re not talking about the feeble attack piece the NY Times posted over the weekend. We’re talking about something yuge. Whatever it is, it needs to happen right before the Republican National Convention.

One might wonder why it has to happen right before the convention. The reason is RNC rule 40b and the meddling of the GOP Establishment. Under rule 40b, a candidate can only be on the ballot if they have a majority of delegates in eight or more states. Only Cruz and Trump qualify. If the disqualifying/scandalous Trump event happens before the rules are modified, the RNC will almost certainly shift the rules to allow for more candidates on the ballot. We would see Marco Rubio and John Kasich almost certainly making a play on the floor if they’re on the ballot. We might even see someone else make a move. The Establishment will do whatever they can to prevent Cruz from getting the nod. That’s why this must transpire after the rules are finalized the week before the convention.”

Louie Gohmert Says FBI Won’t Indict Hillary Clinton

He may be right. For a bureaucrat like Comey it would be really difficult to actually pursue an indictment against Hillary. It would take a very strong man who is willing to sacrifice his job, his good name, and the safety of his family to do so. That is not a good description of most people who choose to work for government.

This scenario is so logical that it just sounds right. Comey will be getting pressure from the Clintons, Attorney General Lynch, and the White House.

[FBI] Director [James] Comey is a pretty straight up guy, and I don’t think he’ll pull any punches,” Rep. Louie Gohmert, a Texas Republican, told the Washington Examiner on Tuesday. “But I could also see him avoiding a controversy by just saying, here’s all the evidence, it’s not our job to indict, that’s up to the attorney general. And so we’re just laying out the evidence.”

WaPo Does A Hit Job On Hillary Clinton

“Did Clinton laugh about a rapist’s light sentence and attack sexual harassment victims?”

Probably not the best image to use.  How many young people will not get the connection to the movie '1984'?

Probably not the best image to use. How many young people will not get the connection to the movie ‘1984’?

Democrat Senate candidates need to ask themselves: Can they really support Hillary Clinton? She’s a living history of scandal, lies and spin. Defended an accused child rapist, then laughed about his lenient sentence. Whitewater. Travelgate. Chinagate. Filegate. She politically attacked sexual harassment victims, pretended she landed under sniper fire. Benghazi. The Clinton Foundation. FBI investigation. Ruthless. Fake accents, fake concerns, and fake laughs. Hillary Clinton. She’s the living embodiment of everything that people hate about politics. Democratic Senate candidates—she is your burden to bear.”

Actually this is a brief from Yahoo of a Washington Post story by their fact checker, Glenn Kessler. He is rating an ad from the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

In spite of the fact that they did get their facts right, Kessler didn’t like it so he gave it three Pinocchios.

It is interesting that Yahoo took the article and reprinted it out of context, thereby reversing the intent. How many more people will read the Yahoo brief than will read the WaPo story?

“Trump Preparing Plan to Dismantle Obama’s Wall Street Reform Law”

This actually sounds like a pretty good place to start. Dismantle Dodd-Frank.

“Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said on Tuesday that sweeping financial reforms put in place under President Barack Obama were harming the economy and he would dismantle nearly all of them.”

Trump-Opulence-featured

Trump told Reuters in an interview that he would release a plan in about two weeks for overhauling the 2010 financial regulatory law known as Dodd-Frank.

“Dodd-Frank has made it impossible for bankers to function,” the presumptive Republican nominee said. “It makes it very hard for bankers to loan money for people to create jobs, for people with businesses to create jobs. And that has to stop.”

Black Lives Matter 101

““Blackness” Matters”

blm310

Rachelle Peterson writes this in the publication of the National Association Of Scholars. It is a result of her attending a five day course in April at what is called ‘The New Black School’.

597baa_6a79ddb46e314715881447d0fbbe5e0b

The raised, clenched fist indicates that the course is somehow connected to socialism or communism. Ms. Peterson outlines the goals of the Black Lives Matter movement.

What does the Black Lives Matter movement want? After all the “demands” on all the campuses; all the protests on all the city streets; and all the coverage in the national media, you might think the answer is obvious. Perhaps it is. Black Lives Matter activists want attention and they want political power.”

No surprise there. But there seems to be some disconnect about their message. But within the movement, things are more complicated.

Some participants fiercely argue that America needs to change by embracing “diversity.” Others just as fiercely argue that what is needed is a cohesive form of Black Nationalism that shuns white society. According to this second view, the only way to convince people that “black lives matter” is to reaffirm the importance of “blackness” itself. What is blackness? The advocates find that rather hard to say. And to make matters even more confusing, some of the participants in Black Lives Matter enunciate both views at once. They want to be “included” in mainstream society while at the same time expressing contemptuous rejection of that society.”

Sounds rather childish to me.

‘Splain This, Bernie

Bernie Sanders continues to support socialism even though there are thousands, perhaps millions, of excellent arguments that it always ends in failure. Today the New York Times has a piece on the failure of socialized medicine in Venezuela.

“Dying Infants and No Medicine: Inside Venezuela’s Failing Hospitals”

Just one of the horrific images at the Times

Just one of the horrific images at the Times

By morning, three newborns were already dead.

The day had begun with the usual hazards: chronic shortages of antibiotics, intravenous solutions, even food. Then a blackout swept over the city, shutting down the respirators in the maternity ward.

Doctors kept ailing infants alive by pumping air into their lungs by hand for hours. By nightfall, four more newborns had died.

“The death of a baby is our daily bread,” said Dr. Osleidy Camejo, a surgeon in the nation’s capital, Caracas, referring to the toll from Venezuela’s collapsing hospitals.

The economic crisis in this country has exploded into a public health emergency, claiming the lives of untold numbers of Venezuelans. It is just part of a larger unraveling here that has become so severe it has prompted President Nicolás Maduro to impose a state of emergency and has raised fears of a government collapse.”

Unfortunately, not once in the news report is blame laid where it rightly belongs, with socialism.

So, It Appears That Bill Clinton Has The Epstein Virus

Named after Jeffery Epstein who owns the ‘Lolita Express’.

This morning there are a couple of articles about Bill’s sexual appetites. First is the story in Front Page Mag about him having made 26 trips on Jeffery Epstein’s ‘Lolita Express’ jet.

**Exclusive** Jeffrey Epstein leaves his New York Mansion with an attractive unidentified brunette girl before flying out of New York together on his private jet.

Former President Bill Clinton was a much more frequent flyer on a registered sex offender’s infamous jet than previously reported, with flight logs showing the former president taking at least 26 trips aboard the “Lolita Express” — even apparently ditching his Secret Service detail for at least five of the flights, according to records obtained by FoxNews.com.”

The second story is from Breitbar>t. It quotes a Texas attorney named Dolly Kyle who claims she had a long-running affair with Bill Clinton. She calls Hillary a ‘Terrorist’ because she ‘Terrorizes’ the women who have bedded Bill.

Dolly Kyle

Dolly Kyle

In an interview, Kyle claimed that “Billy” Clinton, as she called him, once boasted to her that he had had sex with about 2,000 women. She described Clinton as a “sex addict” who has some “sick, sick need” to “control women.”

[…]

If he had sex with 2,000 women or even 200 women, but probably 2,000 is closer, and Hillary was married to him. If she didn’t know what he was doing than what’s wrong with her brain?

Certainly she’s an enabler, but worse than that. She’s a co-conspirator. … Hillary had to know what was going on and she latched on to his coattails to get herself to the White House, which is the plan that they are following.”

Salon: “This is one weak nominee”

They are correct. Hillary is a weak candidate. She is unlikable and frightening – even to leftists. Everyone knows she is prone to violent fits of anger, she is vindictive, and she has no center. Bernie Sanders is a weak candidate. He’s a lousy public speaker and he has no record of accomplishments. Still, he is causing Hillary trouble.

If Donald Trump is the GOP Nominee he will destroy Clinton in the polls.

“Hillary Clinton’s problem isn’t Bernie Sanders. It’s Hillary Clinton”

Clinton speaks at the Eagle Academy Foundationís annual fundraising breakfast in New York

No matter what you think about Hillary Clinton as the presidential primaries wind down, there is one undeniable fact that lingers in the background. Despite having had enormous advantages from the start of the campaign—no serious competition from within the party, solid support from national party leaders, a massive war chest and a nationwide grassroots network built over the course of decades in national politics—Clinton has struggled to put away a 74-year-old Jewish socialist who has had almost no establishment support.”
