“Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton Debate: Who Hates America More?”

Interesting question from Robert Stacy McCain. He goes through a litany of the ways both Democrat candidates have promised to harm our country. Since we are debating who hates America most perhaps we should include Barack Obama in the question.

Sanders_Clinton_Debate_Wisconsin_February_2016

It was a strange thing to watch Thursday’s debate between the insurgent socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders and the increasingly frantic former frontrunner Hillary Clinton, where the key issue seemed to be which one of them was more capable of destroying whatever fragments of American civilization might still be intact after Barack Obama concludes his eight-year effort to wreck the country.
Bernie’s plan has the virtue of simplicity:
1. Loot the banks;
2. Plunder the rich;
and
3. Free stuff for everybody!

[…]

The Democrat Party is the world’s most successful hate group. It attracts poor people who hate rich people, black people who hate white people, gay people who hate straight people, feminists who hate men, environmentalists who hate the internal combustion engine, and a lot of bratty college kids who hate their parents. However, the real secret of the party’s success is that it attracts the support of journalists who hate Republicans, and who therefore work tirelessly to convince the rest of us that we should vote for Democrats.”

That’s really pretty astute. Democrats always accuse Republicans of being haters even though it’s not true. It’s projection. Democrats hate many things with a searing, fire like zeal. So naturally they expect those on the other side to do the same. Take a look at the video below wherein Ben Shapiro talks about race violence. He is not angry. Rather, he is trying to make sense out of nonsense. The other two people appear to be confused that anyone would even consider questioning the motives of the left.

Interesting. Democrats as a hate group. It sounds, somehow, just right.

“My One Big Regret From My Time In The Secret Service”

This rather whiny screed was written by former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino.

Bongino

Bongino

He says he regrets being on Hillary Clinton’s protection detail. He took an oath to do his job. Clinton was a part of that job. Now he’s writing about it as though he should have violated his oath.

He does say some unpleasant things about Clinton, so there is that.

Hillary Clinton is a reprehensible human being. There, I said it. And for the sake of our wonderful country, so should you. After watching, and re-watching, the footage of her disgraceful and incredibly dishonest debate performance wherein, when questioned about classified information on her private email server, she replied, “We’ve got this absurd situation of retroactive classification,” I thought, “Is this a sick joke?” But tragically this joke isn’t funny; it has the very real potential to get someone killed and to put us all in danger.

Cosmopolitan Magazine Editors Want Women To Be Lonely – Or Lesbians

I’ll tell ya, this is the kind of thing that explains why so few young people are in meaningful relationships. With hundreds of millions of guns in the country the odds of finding a man who doesn’t own one are small.

I am not in the dating scene but if I were I would never find the woman below to be attractive. Hateful, sneering women – or men – are ugly.

“Cosmopolitan Magazine to Partner with Bloomberg Group to Promote Gun Control”

The magazine will run a propaganda piece in the March issue called “Singled Out,” warning single women they may be dating a man who is a firearms owner. And he may become “disgruntled.”

“EPA Goes After Low-Income Farmers In Land Grab”

shutterstock_311285612-998x667

The Supreme Court says the Clean Water Act is not a grant of federal control over every stream and depression in the nation. The Environmental Protection Agency says otherwise.

Pendleton County, West Virginia, is home to 540 farms. The average farm in the county has a net income of around $45,000 a year. On either coast, that’s not an impressive income, but those farms are important to Pendleton County, where the median household income is $30,429.

[…]

At least some of those EPA employees have been thinking about farms in Pendleton County. The county is in the Chesapeake Bay watershed and, consequently, in the crosshairs of a massive and detailed EPA blueprint to alter the waters of the bay. The plan, an outgrowth of an executive order President Obama signed shortly after taking office, divides the Chesapeake watershed into thousands of small areas and prescribes pollution abatement goals for each of those areas.

These goals, or total maximum daily loads (TMDL), will give EPA total control over land use throughout the six states and the District of Columbia that make up the Chesapeake Watershed. For farmers in Pendleton County, the effects will be immediate and drastic. Or, to quote from a brief the county and several other nearby counties filed in the Third Circuit Court: “It is anticipated that a significant amount of Pendleton county farmland will have to be removed from production due to its proximity to waterways and the resulting impact of the Bay TMDL on local land use.”

Diversity At Rutgers Means Silencing Anyone Who Disagrees With You

“Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos’ tour of U.S. university campuses has started off with a bang. His first event, at Rutgers University in New Jersey, was disrupted by feminists and Black Lives Matter protesters, who chanted slogans and smeared fake blood on their faces before storming out of the auditorium.”

milo-protesters-rutgers-youtube-640x480

unnamed-2 (1)

Yiannopoulos had been invited by the Young Americans For Liberty at Rutgers to speak on “How the Progressive Left Is Destroying Education.” The event drew a huge crowd, with the line of students waiting to enter the venue stretching around campus. It’s the first stage of Yiannopoulos “Dangerous Faggot Tour,” a series of speeches by the Breitbart Tech editor on U.S campuses, which have become hotbeds of regressive-left radicalism in recent months.

Midway through his speech, Yiannopoulos faced disruption from a number of progressive activists on campus, who smeared fake blood on their faces and chanted “Black Lives Matter.”

It’s hard to understand what the moonbats were trying to accomplish. They interrupted the speech but did not stop it. They made a hella mess in the process. One thing is sure, though, they didn’t like Yiannopoulos’ message.

After the screeching stopped he continued his speech and was well received.

After the protesters left the auditorium, the event continued with Yiannopoulos taking questions from the audience, who later queued up for autographs and photos with the Breitbart Tech editor. In contrast to the activists, Yiannopoulos’ supporters conducted themselves peacefully for the rest of the evening.”

Apparently the staff at Rutgers University allows students to damage the school’s property. That red paint wound up everywhere.

“Special Ops Commander Demands Pentagon Stop Exposing Operations”

President Obama’s nominee to head U.S. Central Command recently penned a memo to Defense Secretary Ash Carter demanding that the Pentagon stop discussing the operations of elite American troops.

Foreign Policy, which obtained an excerpt of the memo, reported that Gen. Joseph Votel, currently the chief of U.S. Special Operations Command, wrote the December 8 memo to express concern about the Obama administration’s exposure of special operations forces’ activities.

“I am concerned with increased public exposure of SOF activities and operations, and I assess that it is time to get our forces back into the shadows,” Votel wrote to Carter.”

Reuters: “N.J. Governor Christie to end White House bid”

U.S. Republican presidential candidate and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie addresses the crowd at a primary election night party Nashua,

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is expected to end his bid for the Republican presidential nomination on Wednesday, U.S. media reported, but a Christie spokesman said the candidate had not made up his mind.

“No decision has been made,” spokeswoman Sam Smith said in an email to Reuters.

Politico, citing an unidentified source, said Christie, who placed a disappointing sixth in the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday, would suspend his campaign on Wednesday.

Fox Business Network, in a post on Twitter, earlier reported that Christie was dropping out but did not cite any sources. Separately, CBS reported the governor could take as long as 24 hours before deciding, citing sources.”

Monica Crowley writes in the Washington Times:

At her initial press conference on the matter that month, Mrs. Clinton said the server that housed her emails while she was secretary was set up for Mr. Clinton.

“The system we used was set up for President Clinton’s office,” she said.

She added, “It was on property guarded by the Secret Service. So, I think that the use of that server, which started with my husband, certainly proved to be effective and secure.”

“Obama’s budget proposal includes billions for gun control”

This is in Obama’s ‘Wish list’ budget that he sent to the Congress. It isn’t likely to go anywhere but it does show where his priorities are.

PrepareGunControl

The ATF budget request is $1.3 billion, of which more than $35 million will be spent hiring 200 additional agents to reduce gun violence. The FBI is also requesting more money to hire an additional 230 employees to speed up the process to background checks on gun sales.

The budget request also includes more funding for mental healthcare and gun safety technology, among other things.

These are all priorities Obama mentioned last month when he announced his executive action on gun control.”

With Hillary On The Ropes Look For A Third Geezer To Jump In: Bloomberg

From the Christian Science Monitor:

“Bloomberg for president? Why an independent run might work”

He's a real sweetheart

He’s a real sweetheart

Former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg confirmed yesterday that he is considering entering the 2016 presidential race as a third-party candidate.

This confirms rumors sparked last month after it was revealed Mr. Bloomberg had retained a political consultant and conducted preliminary polls to determine his electability.

The New York billionaire says he wants to raise the standard of political dialogue and champion political moderates.”

Moderates? He wants to micromanage the people. He doesn’t want you to drink soda or own a gun. CNN Says about him:

Aren’t we tired of billionaires who think that just because they have a lot more money in their pockets than we do they deserve to run for president?

I’m not thinking so much about Donald Trump as Michael Bloomberg, the former Mayor of New York City, who has once again been floating the idea that he might run, possibly as a Third Party candidate. Yes, it’s ludicrous.”

I’d say ‘Dangerous’ instead of ‘Ludicrous’, but that’s just me.

They’re Calling This A Horrendous Gaffe. But Is It?

marco_rubio

Marco Rubio said this several times during the ‘Debate’. Chris Christie pointed it out and lambasted Rubio for saying it.

Let’s dispel once and for all with this fiction that Barack Obama doesn’t know what he’s doing. He knows exactly what he’s doing. Barack Obama is undertaking a systematic effort to change this country, to make America more like the rest of the world.”

Christie called it a, “Thirty second, memorized, speech”. It may well be but the furor in the media over what Rubio said is out of line.

The fact is that what he said is true and needs to be said and repeated. He and Ted Cruz are saying things like this about President Obama – and there lies the rub.

The media and the progressive candidates like Christie are shocked that anyone would speak the truth about Barack Obama. They can’t get Cruz and Rubio to stop saying it so they are deflecting attention away from the substance of the comment by trying to destroy those who are saying it. It’s beginning to work, too. Even conservative writer Ben Shapiro has jumped on the ‘Gaffe’ bandwagon.

Truth be known, every candidate has pre-prepared comments that they trot out repeatedly to answer questions from reporters and others. Christie does it. All of them do it. Possibly the worst one is Hillary Clinton. She has only a few things that she can and will comment on. The rest are off limits.

Rubio needs to learn from Donald J. Trump. He needs to use that line in every one of his speeches. It does need to be repeated often.

$21,667,000.00 – A Tidy Sum

That’s how much Hillary Clinton got in speaking fees from many sources, not just Goldman Sachs. A quarter million – or more – for a speech is quite a fee. As you can see, many of her speeches netted much more than that. It’s hard to imagine how this would be portrayed if she were a Republican.

Actually, no it’s not.

WSJ: “Cruz Opposes Women in Selective Service”

Finally, someone takes the sane approach. The whole ‘Allow women to do any job in the military’ movement will weaken our armed services. Physical standards will be lowered to the point of unit ineffectiveness. Senator Cruz is right. It’s all about political correctness and that is stupid.

“Texas senator: Requiring women to register for the draft is senseless political correctness”

Ted Cruz speaks at a town hall-style campaign event on Sunday in Peterborough, N.H. PHOTO: ASSOCIATED PRESS

PETERBOROUGH, N.H. –Ted Cruz said Sunday a proposal to include women in the Selective Service registration was a product of out of control political correctness and warned against putting a woman soldier near a dangerous “psychopath” in a combat situation.

Mr. Cruz’s remark sets him in opposition to rivals Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush and Chris Christie, all of whom in Saturday night’s debate announced support for registering women in the Selective Service system in case a military draft is ever reinstated.”

More Evidence Of Fraud In Iowa Democrat Caucus

“Iowans claim instances when Sanders was shorted delegates”

This is the kind of changes that they say matters.

Keane Schwarz is certain he knows the outcome of the vote in his precinct: He was the lone caucusgoer in Woodbury County No. 43.

But the Iowa Democratic Party’s final results state that Hillary Clinton won one county delegate and Bernie Sanders received zero.

“I voted for Bernie,” Schwarz, 36, of Oto, told The Des Moines Register. “It was really suspicious … I’m actually pretty irate about it.”

Some complaints that Iowa Democrats have shared with the Register about discrepancies in caucus results appear to be valid.”

“Hacker Plans to Dump Alleged Details of 20,000 FBI, 9,000 DHS Employees”

Nothing is safe any more in the United States. The President has created a climate of lazy unconcern for secrets, laws, and sworn oaths. We see examples every day. This is just another.

From there, he tried logging into a DoJ web portal, but when that didn’t work, he phoned up the relevant department.

“So I called up, told them I was new and I didn’t understand how to get past [the portal],” the hacker told Motherboard. “They asked if I had a token code, I said no, they said that’s fine—just use our one.”

The hacker says he then logged in, clicked on a link to a personal computer which took him to an online virtual machine, and entered in the credentials of the already hacked email account. After this, the hacker was presented with the option of three different computers to access, he claimed, and one was the work machine of the person behind the originally hacked email account.

Maybe You Didn’t Notice But That’s Just How He Operates.

This is from the New York Times’ Politics Page:

“Obama’s Lofty Plans on Gun Violence Amount to Little Action”

WASHINGTON — The centerpiece of a plan for stemming gun violence that President Obama announced to great fanfare last month largely amounts to this: an updated web page and 10,000 pamphlets that federal agents plan to give out at gun shows.

In a tearful display of anger and sadness in the East Room of the White House, Mr. Obama ordered a series of steps intended to limit gun violence and vowed to clamp down on what he called widespread evasion of a federal law requiring gun dealers to obtain licenses.

But few concrete actions have been put in motion by law enforcement agencies to aggressively carry out the gun dealer initiative, despite the lofty expectations that Mr. Obama and top aides set.

Obama administration officials said they have no specific plans to boost investigations, arrests or prosecutions of gun sellers who do not comply with the law. No task forces have been assembled. No agents or prosecutors have been specifically reassigned to such cases. And no funding has been reallocated to accelerate gun sale- investigations in Washington or at the offices of the 93 United States attorneys.”

Saints be praised. This President has, over and over again, shown himself to be shallow and uncommitted. What matters most to him is that he can Say he has taken action. It is not important that action actually occurs. Look at the nuclear agreement he signed with Iran. He gave them every thing they wanted, got nothing in return. He actually didn’t even Ask for anything. He could have suggested the release of the Americans Iran is hold in but he didn’t.

Now he can say he has taken action toward gun control because his eyes leaked when he talked about it. As the NYT notes there are no actions behind his ‘Promise’. It’s unfortunate that their editorial board is unable to see the big picture with Barack Obama. They can not see past his marvelous skin tone.

It’s not unlike the reason they support Hillary Clinton. It’s entirely because of her supposed genitalia.
