All the News That's Fit to be Tied

I have an axe to grind, but unlike the New York Times, I freely admit it.

The Russians Are Coming

There can't be a single non-partisan observer that couldn't see this coming. The Democrats laid the plan for the Putin Card (You remember, The Democrat's Dirty Trick deck (see below)) last Spring. All through the Primary campaign and the summer Hillary Clinton, her campaign staff and her lapdog press corps continually connected Donald Trump to Putin. She went as far as to call Trump a Putin puppet in a Presidential Debate. In August the Obama Administration announced the report signed off on by our 17 intelligence agencies that indicated the possibility of Russia trying to effect America's election process. On August 28th I tweeted "The Obama Administration is already preparing for a Trump victory by saying Russians have hacked into some state election systems." On September 15th,  I said "I predicted the Russian/DNC hack connection to Trump by Hilary two weeks ago. Even before the election the Democrats were playing the Putin Card."  On Oct 11th,  I tweeted  "Democrats now consistently playing the Trump-Putin conspiracy gambit because they can't beat @real Donald Trump on the issues."  On October 16th,  I tweeted "Trump will win in 2016 - Democrats will contest based on the Russian fiction created by Obama and Democrats." The point is, as I said earlier, this was entirely predictable.  Another Tweet: "With two weeks to go Obama is already preparing to contest the results if Trump wins by blaming the Russians." So here we are; The Electoral College has confirmed the result of the 2016 Presidential Election and Trump will become President on Jan 20th. But still the Democrat establishment, which includes Obama's Executive Branch agencies including the CIA and FBI, The Democrat party apparatus, and a compliant mainstream media, continues to play the Putin Card in the hope of eroding confidence in Trump and destroying his Presidency before it starts. Let me make another prediction: Time and investigation will show WikiLeaks and the Podesta emails and Hillary herself are what really destroyed her chances in the 2016 Election. The hacking of the Democrat National Committee was done by an insider who gave the emails to WikiLeaks. Podesta gave up his own emails through a "phishing" email that requested he change his password-he fell for it. In the same way Saddam Hussein was said to have nuclear weapons, Putin is said to be the hacker-in-chief who hacked our election system to engineer a Trump victory. An investigation will prove Putin and the Russians had nothing to do with Podesta's emails or the DNC hack, What those emails showed would destroy any candidacy.  I would point out that until Hillary lost the election even Obama said our system couldn't be hacked enough to alter the results since most of our polling places aren't even online or connected to the internet. So there you have it. The Russian Gambit, The Putin Card; call it what you want. One more prediction: Despite their gargantuan effort to destroy the Trump Presidency it will fail.

The Trump Card In The Democrat Deck

You have to admire these Democrats. To paraphrase President Trump in his last debate with Hilary Clinton: They never give up. They used every card in the deck to defeat Trump and even with a compliant media that admitted its intention to help Hilary and the Democrats defeat him, they failed. They tried the "rich" card, it failed. They tried the "race" card, it failed. They tried the "white supremacy" card, and it failed too.  But they still weren't done. They tried the "Hitler" card and then in August they took their first shot in the Russian Gambit. For almost a year the Democrats and the Hilary Campaign played up the idea that Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin were great friends and Russia was a great threat to the United States; something Obama ridiculed Mitt Romney for in the 2012 election. In late August before the election Barack Obama told the press there are indicators that the Russians may be trying to interfere with our election process. This was in the midst of the WikiLeaks release of Clinton Campaign Director John Podesta emails which showed the really ugly underbelly of the Clinton Campaign. Hilary's contempt for ordinary people was exposed, as was the collusion between the press and the Hilary campaign and the underhanded tactics used by the Clinton Campaign to gain an edge. As far as WikiLeaks is concerned there is no evidence that the Russians had anything to do with helping Julian Assange get that info, Podesta foolishly did it all himself. It is almost clear that the hacking of the Democratic Committee was an inside job. (True and efficient hacking is done with stolen or purchased passwords, not algorithms)  In October President Obama dismissed voter fraud by saying that our election process was too decentralized to be effectively hacked and that even if it were possible, noting that much of the voting system isn't even on the internet, you couldn't have enough fraud to effect the outcome. "So Donald Trump should stop whining and go out and get the votes," he said.  Now however Obama is singing a different tune. The Obama Administration has released a year old report that purports, but does not prove, there nay have been Russian involvement. The new Congress, will be busy trying to investigate this stuff so let me move on to the last card before the inauguration. (Opps-I  forgot the "recount" card; that failed too) The "electoral college" card, which be played on Monday Dec 19th, when the state electors meet to certify the Electoral College totals. .It is the final step before Donald Trump's victory is official.  Nine Democrats and one Republican hope to derail the hopes of the American people by preventing Trump from getting the votes required to become the 45th President. They will fail. He will be sworn in on January 20th and then the Democrats will play the rest of their cards: The "filibuster card" to slow the appointments of Cabinet Secretary's and Judges. The "sand in the gears" card to slow down the Legislative process. The "legal action" card to curtail Trump's overturning of executive orders and the implementation of new ones. The "media" card to slander and spread gossip about Trump, his staff and the Republicans in Congress. And finally at some point they will try the "impeachment" card. There are many cards in the Democrat deck of dirty tricks, but they will fail because there is no higher card in the deck than the Trump card.

Democrat Group Think; The Weapon of Choice

What is it with liberals? Whenever conservatives make a legitimate observation about a problem Democrats turn it into a group think argument about race, religion, gender or immgration just to name a few. For example take the latest furor over Islam and Islamic refugees from North Africa. Donald Trump suggested we halt immigration of Muslim refugees until we get a handle on the situation. Democrats, and Republicans who polish their apples, turned this into an insult to all Muslims thereby implying that Trump's statement was one of being anti-Muslim rather than being pro-security. This is  the Democrat playbook. It applies to race, religion, gender and immigration: So I wanted to provide Democrats with a little guide to understanding conservative criticism:
A- Criticizing Muslim terrorist's is not a criticism of all Muslims only those who practice terror.
B- Criticizing a minority group for its action is not a criticism of all minorities, only those that practice illegal action.
C- Critcizing a women for her action is not a criticism of all women, only the one specified.
D- Critcizing illegal immigrants is not a criticism of all immigrants, only those that are here illegally whether they entered illegally, over-stayed their visa or committed fraud to enter the country.

Understanding this is extremely important especially if you are an immigrant or a minority. Democrats have used this group think psychology for 50 years to keep immigrants in the shadows, minorities locked in little isolated communities with poor schools, no jobs and a future dependent on Democrat handouts. Democrats have rigged this system the same way they rigged the Primary so that Hilary can't lose. They want to secure the future of their political power at the expense people's lives and the future of their children. If you think that's a lie look at any Democratically-controlled city. Things in common include Sanctuary City status, impoverished neighborhoods, poor schools, high crime and no jobs. If you understand Democrat group think you can escape and vote in your own interest, which is to vote Republican. Wise up and be free, independent and better off.

Is the New Left Becoming the People They Loathe?

Donald Trump has awakened the savage beast of progressive politics. His candidacy is so frightening to them,  they are willing to put their supposed values of non-violence, equity and fairness on the chopping block to prevent Trump from putting out his message. Last week in Chicago, student protestors planned for two weeks and, with help from Black Lives Matter, La Raza and,  made Trump's event so dangerous he had to cancel it. The very next day a man jumped the barricades and tried to attack Trump while he was speaking. CNN then spent two days trying to make the bearded thug a hero rather than expose him for the sniveling little coward he is. To compound its obvious bias against Trump a CNN commentator suggested no Republican in his right mind would try to speak at the University of Chicago. Why is that? Are progressives so afraid to hear other opinions they are willing to sacrifice the freedom of expression and freedom of speech of those they disagree with? Apparently so. The words said about Trump by his detractors are far worse than anything Trump has said about the protestors who have tried to ruin his events. So far one Trump supporter elbowed a protestor who gave him the finger. That's it. Meanwhile, Trump opponents have gotten into his events and deliberately started trouble in an effort to shut it down. They were not peaceful, they were not friendly; in a word they were thugs trying to deny Trump supporters their right to hear Trump speak. And, once again the Chicago event speaks for itself. My words will not get through to Black Lives Matter, La Raza or, but maybe, just maybe, they may get through to you. The political left, which includes the Democrats, their candidates, the groups previously mentioned, as well as their influence peddlers in America's colleges and universities and media have targeted Trump because he scares them. His message is one that has attracted people from all groups despite the image being created. It is the race-baiters that cry racism. It is the most sexist that cry sexism. It is the supposed protectors of free speech that are acting to suppress it. I started by asking if the progressive left is becoming like those they profess to loathe. The answer is yes, they have.

Why Trump Is The Right Man For The Job

There is a great fear in the Nation among those who wish to preserve the racist, sexist, homophobic, class-driven society run by a  bi-partisan demagogic Congress whose only wish is the preserve the Status Quo. That is the reason for the amazing all out assault on Donald Trump. The powers that be are driving the fear of Trump because they fear Trump. It is because he is the right man for the job. Consider that most of the issues that are discussed on the debates are issues that require the consent of Congress and the President to be changed. Immigration, the national debt, cutting spending, closing departments and funding all require Executive and Congressional agreement.  However the single thing that a President Trump can do is clean up the Executive Branch, which includes the all the departments in the Cabinet: Justice, Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, Environmental Protection, Education, Defense, Interior and Agriculture. Trump can make them work for us, instead of US working for them. While his own Empire is dwarfed by the size of the Federal Bureaucracy he is the only one that understands large departments enough to take them apart and change the culture so they work for and not against American interests. For example. most people don't realize that ObamaCare is a regulatory scheme and not a law. It can be changed to fit whatever ideas the Secretary of HHS has. By replacing the current Secretary with one who has free market ideas, the regulations that control ObamaCare can be changed to create a a more market driven model. The same is true for the EPA, IRS and Homeland Security. Obama has successfully created a bureaucracy that legislates, so a President Trump has the ability to undo much of it and return the power to the Congress or change the regulations to be more favorable to the American people. None of the other candidates, both Republican and Democrat, have the experience and insight to clean up the Bureaucracy and that is what the country really needs; and that is why Trump is the right man for the job.

Thirteen Hours and Why the Truth Has Not Been Told

The opening of Thirteen Hours, a story of the Benghazi attack from the point of view of three CIA contract soldiers, is a compelling film that raises many questions about what happened and the State Department's  failure to send help when the Annex was under attack. Was it a spontaneous demonstration caused by a video? Apparently not. Secretary Clinton knew it was an attack and said so the next day to the Prime Minister of Egypt and her daughter Chelsea. From the night of the attack the Obama Administration, including The President, Secretary Clinton, Susan Rice and others continued to insist it was a spontaneous demonstration caused by a video. They even said it to the families of the men killed when their bodies were returned to the U.S. Obama even repeated it in his UN Speech almost two months later.

After several Congressional investigations, hundreds, even thousands of hours of testimony, we know the facts: It was a planned attack, everyone involved knew it and tried to keep it hidden and some Americans died unnecessarily. But all of this never gets to the WHY? And the why is the reason for all the confusion, deception and deflection. It may take years to come out but in the end it will be said Benghazi, was not about Obama's re-election, it was a weapons deal gone bad. America was secretly selling weapons to what they thought was a group of "moderate Syrian rebels." Ambassador Stevens and his team discovered that the buyers they thought were Syrian Rebels, were in fact Taliban. The Ambassador attempted to cancel the deal and he was killed, as were all those who failed to get out of the Annex. The Annex was allowed to burn and the men inside were allowed to die to make sure this would not be discovered. I will leave the bickering of what people did say and didn't say about Benghazi but the circumstantial evidence for a weapons deal is pretty strong. 

Less than two weeks before the attack a Turkish freighter loaded with weapons reportedly headed for Gaza to arm Palestinians was conveniently diverted to Libya. Just a coincidence? The Administration was heavily involved in trying to arm Syrian Rebels in Obama's effort to depose Bashar Assad. Unable to organize the opposition in Syria he did the next best thing he could think of. Contact was made with a group in Libya claiming to be Syrian Rebels. Obama was anxious to take out Assad as he had done to Hosni Mubarak of Egypt and Muammar Gaddafi. It just so happens that Ambassador Stevens was a friend of Hilary Clinton and she knew he could be depended on to negotiate the deal quietly. However, when the Ambassador learned they were Taliban and tried to call it off he was captured and killed, along with his team. The annex was burned to ground and left unguarded so the evidence that remained could be contaminated or stolen by locals. It was completely vandalized before FBI investigators arrived weeks later.. 

The plan to provide arms to this group was done with the approval of the White House, the State Department, The Defense Department and the Intelligence Directorate, which also means some members of Congress knew about it as well. The investigation into exposing the truth was compromised from the start. Benghazi demonstrates a level of corruption and obstruction by an administration and a go-along, get-along Congress, whose reckless foreign policy set the Middle East on fire starting with Arab Spring, the isolation of Israel, the overthrow of Gaddafi and finally the deal with Iran. Benghazi is the lynchpin in this whole mess. The truth will not come out until well after Obama leaves office.because the corruption involves the Executive Branch, The Congress, The Military and Intelligence.
