Conservative Revenge

The mainstream media and Democratic Party are so hopelessly disconnected from Middle America to the point that the only possible explanation is that we must be racist and bigoted, though they can’t back any of that up.  Van Jones on CNN even called the election a “whitelash.”  Umm, so please tell me how we are using divisive rhetoric!  Oh it must have been white racists, or we’re just uneducated rednecks.  We didn’t get a PhD in African-American Lesbian Dance Theory from Yale, therefore we’re somehow too stupid to elect a President.

Tuesday night should not be a surprise.

So evidently there are many people in complete and utter disbelief that Donald Trump was elected President, but really they shouldn’t be so surprised.  Why are the news networks, academics, and Washington insiders so surprised?  Because they live in echo chambers – they are primarily surrounded by people whose opinions mirror their own. Continue reading “Tuesday night should not be a surprise.”

Liberals just can’t handle reality

I really didn’t want to gloat.  Yes I was happy about Donald Trump’s election and there was nothing that I wanted more than to reach out a hand and work with those on the left, to show that we are all one nation and need to strive for unity.  Then I read a piece by humorist Garrison Keillor, of whom I used to be a big fan:

Soak the rich? Or, How to Run the Country on $10 billion per day

I wrote this a while ago regarding Bernie Sanders, but it still applies to Crooked Hillary.
———–
Ok I’m seeing a lot of back and forth on this commentary, and I myself have been a bit reactionary with my comments as well.  Although I’m vehemently against Sen. Sanders’s economic policies, I can see why he has the appeal that he does.  I agree he’s a charismatic Washington outsider, he’s probably the most honest person in the race right now (though next to Clinton and Trump that’s not saying much).  I believe his heart is in the right place.  That said, it’s important to understand why his plans cannot possibly work.  The numbers just don’t add up.
Unfunded liabilities are the difference between the net present value of expected future government spending and the net present value of projected future tax revenue, particularly those associated with Social Security and Medicare.  At usdebtclock.org, federal unfunded liabilities are estimated at near $127 trillion, which is roughly $1.1 million per taxpayer and nearly double 2012’s total world output.  The United States Gross Domestic Product or GDP, is the measure of national income and output for a given country’s economy. In other words. The gross domestic product (GDP) is equal to the total expenditures for all final goods and services produced within the country in a stipulated period of time.  The US in 2016 has a GDP of about $16.77 trillion which according to the Congressional Budget Office will increase to about $28 trillion in this same 10 year period.  So the unfunded liabilities all by themselves are almost eight times the combined wealth for every person and business in the entire country.  To put another way, suppose your annual income is, say, $40,000 per year.  You have $320,000 of credit cards that are maxed out and you’re now out of work.  What do you think a bank will say when you go for another credit card or loan?  That is the exact situation we have.  You can talk about what’s “fair” or pull the heartstrings all you want, but the numbers don’t lie.  On top of all that, we have a $19 trillion dollar deficit to individuals and foreign nations, and Bernie Sanders is planning at least $18 trillion in new spending over a decade, according to a tally by The Wall Street Journal.  including $15 trillion for Health care, $1.2 trillion for Social Security, and $750 billion for “college affordability.” (Source: Gerald Friedman, UMass Amherst, Sanders Campaign, Social Security Administration):
The common refrain is “just make the rich pay their fair share.”  First, it’s morally not up to anyone to define what “rich” is, or dictate how much money people should be able to make or keep.  But even if we ignore that, it won’t work in the first place.  There are 3.8 million households in 2010 making $250,000 per year or more (roughly top 3-4%).  Suppose we were just to take every penny of their wealth above $250,000.  I don’t just mean a higher tax, I mean cap earnings at $250,000, everything else is forfeited to the government.  So what would happen if we tried to do that?  The mean salary of people in the top 3 percent is $402,476, so if we let them keep $250K, we’ll collect on average (402K-250K)=$152,000.  Multiply by 3.8 million households and we get $578 Billion.  Sounds impressive, but our budget in 2011 was $3.561 TRILLION!  So soaking everyone in the top 3% would generate about SIXTEEN PERCENT of ONE year’s budget, and that’s not even touching the federal deficit or the unfunded liabilities.
An Internet blogger named “Iowahawk” ran the numbers, and though this data is about five years old, the problem has if anything gotten worse.  If we took every cent of profit from each of the Fortune 500 companies, every cent of ad money spent on all 45 Super Bowls, the combined salaries of all players in the NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, 100% of every penny earned over $250,000, end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, kill off all billionaires and near billionaires and take all their money, and end all foreign aid, it would net us (in 2010) $3.561 Trillion.  Sounds impressive, but the 2011 Federal budget was $3.603 trillion, and even the total tax revenue was “only” $2.303 trillion.  That’s barely one quarter of our national debt.  Of course once we’ve done this, we’ve killed nearly every cent of capital in the U.S., destroyed all jobs and since people can’t keep anything above $250,000, nobody has any incentive anymore to star businesses, invent, or innovate.
I’ll make this real simple:  How do you expect any of this to actually work?
  1. Raise taxes on the rich.
  2. ???????
  3. We create more jobs and growth.
Anyone feel like filling in #2?  Seriously, the blindly devoted Bernie supporters out there talking about how Sanders is “obviously” the best person for the job.  Maybe in many ways he’s better than Clinton or Trump, but it’s easy to talk about new spending and social programs and spreading the wealth, if it’s someone else’s wealth you’re spreading around.
And on top of that, Sanders wants to add MORE social programs. EVEN IF YOU WERE TO LIQUIDATE OUR ENTIRE ECONOMY AND THE GOVERNMENT WERE TO SEIZE EVERY CENT FROM EVERYONE, that would not even pay for what we have now! What part of that do people not understand? You can talk about “fair” and “inequality” all you want, but fairness doesn’t put money in our banks, only private industry does that.

Clinton Gave Uranium to Putin. And Trump’s the puppet?

Clinton Gave Uranium to Putin. And Trump’s the puppet?

AP090306017956

“As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation,” The Times reports.

Here’s the high-level summary. There are more details below.

Canadian company Uranium One owned uranium mines in the US and Kazakhstan.  Uranium One’s mines account for 20% of the uranium mined in the US. Uranium is used for nuclear weapons, and it’s considered a strategic asset to the US.  Russia’s state-owned atomic agency, Rosatom, bought a 17% stake in Uranium One in June 2009.  The Russian atomic agency decided it wanted to own 51% of Uranium One in June 2010. To take a majority stake in Uranium One, it needed approval from a special committee that included the State Department, which Hillary Clinton led at the time.  Investors in Uranium One gave money to the Clinton Foundation starting in 2005 and through 2011. On June 29, 2010, Bill Clinton was paid $500,000 to speak in Russia by an investment bank with ties to Russia’s government that had a buy rating on Uranium One’s stock.  In January 2013, despite assurances to the contrary, a subsidiary of Rosatom took over 100% of the company and delisted it from the Toronto Stock Exchange.  Clinton was required to disclose all of her foundation’s contributors before she became secretary of state, but the Clintons did not disclose millions of dollars donated by the chairman of Uranium One while the review of the deal was ongoing.  “Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million,” The Times reports. “Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations as well.” 

Here are some key points from the Times report:

According to The Times, Uranium One’s involvement with the Clintons stretches back to 2005, when former President Bill Clinton accompanied Canadian mining financier Frank Giustra to Kazakhstan, where they met with authoritarian president Nursultan Nazarbayev. Going against American foreign policy at the time, Bill Clinton expressed support for Nazarbayev’s bid to lead an international elections monitoring group.  Soon after, Giustra’s company, UrAsia Energy (the predecessor to Uranium One) won stakes in three uranium mines controlled by Kazakhstan’s state-run uranium agency. Months after the deal, Giustra reportedly donated $31.3 million to Clinton’s foundation.  Clinton traveled to the ex-Soviet Central Asian state to sign an agreement with the government, admitting Kazakhstan into the Clinton Foundation HIV/AIDS Initiative Procurement Consortium.   In June 2009 ARMZ, a subsidiary of Russia’s atomic energy agency Rosatom, finalized a deal for a 17% stake in Uranium One. In June 2010, the Russian government sought a 51% controlling stake in the company that would have to be approved by the American government.
Final say over the deal rested with the foreign investment committee, “including Mrs. Clinton — whose husband was collecting millions of dollars in donations from people associated with Uranium One,” The Times notes.      After the deal was approved in October 2010, Rosatom’s chief executive, Sergei Kiriyenko, said in an interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin: “Few could have imagined in the past that we would own 20% of US reserves.”

A source with knowledge of the Clintons’ fundraising pointed out to The Times that people donate because they hope that money will buy influence. The source said: “Why do you think they are doing it — because they love them?”  “Whether the donations played any role in the approval of the uranium deal is unknown,” The Times concluded. “But the episode underscores the special ethical challenges presented by the Clinton Foundation, headed by a former president who relied heavily on foreign cash to accumulate $250 million in assets even as his wife helped steer American foreign policy as secretary of state, presiding over decisions with the potential to benefit the foundation’s donors.”

So who exactly is running a campaign of hate?

Ok, so evidently Donald Trump is some Nazi-esque racist, misogynist, bicyclist… first, I challenge anyone to find anything he said in those categories where he was directly insulting an entire racial group.  Meanwhile, from the supposedly tolerant Clinton campaign…

Wikileaks:

Catholics insulted by Hillary Clinton campaign:

Trump’s supporters a basket of deplorables

“Needy Latinos”

Sorting VP candidates into “racial food groups” (at 19:00)

And as a bonus… Operatives working for the Clinton campaign are deliberately planting people to disrupt Trump rallies and foment violence.

Five things about Clinton & Trump

FIVE THINGS THAT SCARE ME ABOUT HILLARY CLINTON
Selling out the White House and government favors to the highest bidder, as she has a history of doing with the Clinton Foundation as Secretary of State.  The collusion between the Democrats and the mainstream media, exposed through the Wikileaks emails, the fact that the mainstream media jumps on Trump at every indiscretion, yet defends and deflects from Clinton’s crimes.

Her history of complete corruption, including her email server.  She has been proven to be grossly negligent with national security data for her own personal convenience, and to avoid having her emails visible by government agencies.  There’s ample reason to believe that some of this information could have been hacked, and that foreign and hostile governments have blackmail information on the President of the United States.  There is evidence of collusion between Hillary and the Justice Department.  Her actions reveal her attitude that she is above the law and not subject to the same rules as the rest of society. 

The thought that Hillary will appoint 3 or 4 justices to the Supreme Court who will rule based on political ideology and try to legislate from the bench instead of following the Constitution.  Will our First and Second Amendment rights (which Clinton has a record of opposing) be at the whim of liberal justices who feel that they have the ability to rewrite, and/or shred our Constitutional liberties?

Her insatiable desire for more taxing and more spending will blow up our national debt.  We have, between national debt and unfunded liabilities, $150 to $200 TRILLION, and Clinton wants MORE taxes and more spending.  This is unsustainable and we are approaching a point of no return where our economy will collapse, because Clinton and many other Democrats believe that they can classify every single voter whim as a “right” to be provided at taxpayer expense.

She would completely throw open our borders and erase the meaning of national soveriegnty.  Foreign nationals could come and go at will, settling in our country at our taxpayer expense.  Clinton herself admitted these refugees cannot be vetted, and ISIS has claimed publically that they plan to infiltrate the refugee program with militant terrorists.  Donald Trump is absolutely 100% about his wall policy.  Of course not all Mexicans are rapists and murderers (nor did he say that), but we DO have people who are crossing over who mean harm to us, we can’t possibly vet all of them. And Obama & Clinton seem completely dismissive of that issue.  We are selling out our national security in the name of political correctness.  The increasing wave of terrorist attacks should frighten anyone and give an accurate glimpse of a Hillary Clinton Presidency.

==================
FIVE THINGS THAT MAKE ME SLIGHTLY NERVOUS ABOUT DONALD TRUMP

Trump may not have the temperament.  His insistence on doing things his own way not be conducive to the Executive Branch where you need to take the advice of others.

Trump has shown to have some lewd views towards women.  While I can’t condone any of things, one has to wonder what these have to do with running the country.  We can vote for people without agreeing with everything they’ve done.  I agree these are some pretty nasty words on tape, but really people?  Lewd behavior 10 years ago vs. decades of criminal behavior, corruption, and collusion?  Is there really a choice?

I do criticize his campaign strategy, focusing too much on unimportant negative issues and not highlighting his vision for America and Hillary’s endless flaws.

I do not agree that the best way to handle our trade deficits and job losses overseas is through more tariffs and higher taxes.

I agree that he wants too much spending as well, but I temper that by saying that at least his policies will get free enterprise running again and will provide us a stronger tax base to pay down that debt, while Hillary’s policies will drive wealth and jobs out of the country.  Combine that with her insatiable appetite for spending, and the country will be bankrupt in a decade.

A “Brief” Case Against Hillary Clinton Part 2

SOURCE: http://www.breitbart.com/2016-presidential-race/2016/05/25/clinton-releases-plan-dissolve-us-border-within-100-days/

Hillary Clinton’s position on open borders
(1) Expanding Unconstitutional Executive Amnesty  Perhaps one of the most radical aspects Clinton’s open borders platform is that she is openly campaigning on defending and even expanding President Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesties.   Clinton’s campaign website states that, as President, she will “defend President Obama’s executive actions to provide deportation relief for DREAMers and parents of Americans and lawful residents.” Meaning, Clinton will allow millions of illegal immigrants to remain in the United States, receive work permits to legally fill American jobs, and get access to federal benefits paid for by U.S. taxpayers.
(2) Amnesty Within 100 Days  Clinton has pledged to enact amnesty within her first 100 days in office. As NBC recently reported: “If elected, the former secretary of state has promised to build on President Obama’s executive actions and introduce comprehensive immigration reform during her first 100 days in office.”  Clinton’s website has explained that by “comprehensive immigration reform,” Clinton means full citizenship for illegal immigrants, which would give them welfare access, voting privileges, and the ability to bring over their family members through chain migration.
(3) Freezing deportations
Clinton has said that, as President, that she will essentially freeze deportations.  Clinton’s vision erases entirely the protections that U.S. immigration laws are supposed to afford American citizens: such as protecting Americans from losing a job to an illegal immigrant, preventing the sapping of school and hospital resources, as well as defending the voting privileges and enfranchisement of U.S. citizens (giving citizenship to illegal immigrants allows them to cancel out the votes of native-born American citizens).  The implication of Clinton’s platform– i.e. that illegal entry is not in and of itself a deport-able offense–represents a central pillar of the open borders credo: namely, that millions of people can illegally come to the country, take jobs, attend U.S. schools, receive affirmative action, apply for federal benefits, and give birth to children who receive birthright citizenship.
(4) There’s no need to secure the border because it’s already “the most secure border we’ve ever had”
Even as tens of thousands of migrants continue to pour across our southern border, Clinton has declared that the border is “the most secure border we’ve ever had”– suggesting that she does not feel it is necessary to take additional actions to secure it. Clinton argues that since the border is already secure, it is time to give amnesty to the millions of migrants who have entered illegally.
(5) Closing Detention Centers
On her website, Clinton pledges to “end family detention and close private immigrant detention centers”.  This again represents a radical step in further dismantling what little immigration enforcement is now in place. Clinton is essentially saying that she will not detain new incoming illegal immigrants, but will instead release them into the interior of the United States.
(6) Obamacare for illegal aliens
Clinton has repeatedly said that she supports giving Obamacare to illegal immigrants. Clinton’s website says that Clinton wants to “Expand access to affordable health care to all families… She believes we should let families—regardless of immigration status—buy into the Affordable Care Act exchanges.”
(7) Full path to citizenship
Clinton has pledged to use federal resources to ensure that millions of more foreign migrants are able to vote in U.S. elections:
There are millions of people in America who could be naturalized, but for one reason or another, they’re not. So let’s help more of our neighbors claim their rights… I want to take down the barriers that are holding people back. So here’s a few things I will do: I will work to expand fee waivers, so more people seeking naturalization can get a break on the costs. I will increase access to language programs to help people boost their English proficiency. I will enhance outreach and education so more people know their options and are engaged in the process. I don’t want anyone who could be a citizen to miss out on that opportunity.
A 2011 Pew survey found that Hispanics have a more negative view of capitalism (55%) than do supporters of Occupy Wall Street (47%). A 2012 Pew Hispanic Center survey found that 75% of Hispanics prefer bigger governments that provide more services as opposed to smaller governments that provide fewer services.
(8) Expanded refugee resettlement
Hillary Clinton has called for a massive expansion in Middle East migration… last year Clinton called for admitting 65,000 Syrian refugees—on top of the roughly 30,000 refugees and asylees the U.S. already admits from the Middle East each year. Adding in refugees from across the Muslim world, this means that under Clinton’s plan, the U.S. would admit at least 105,000 thousand refugees from the Muslim world annually.
So Hillary Clinton wants open immigration with no background checks (she admitted herself in a leaked speech that refugees cannot all be vetted), coming into our country at will, sending their children to our schools and hospitals, and getting free health benefits – AT OUR EXPENSE!  THey’re doing it for the votes and to pander to international groups.  No regard to national security, no protection from terrorists, a spit in the face to all the hard-working immigrants who came here legally, and they get to sponge off our country at taxpayer expense.  Contrary to popular belief, no foreigner has the right to enter our country, legally or otherwise.  We have the right to exclude anyone we want to for any reason or no reason.  Those are just the facts.  Yes there are problems out there, but they’re not our cross to bear.  We have failing infrastructure and electrical grids, veterans dying waiting in line for health care, and Democrats are placing a higher priority on foreigners than their own citizens!  I don’t know about you but that pisses me off to no end.  A nation without borders is not a nation – this will be the end of America as we know it.  This is NOT xenophobia or racism – we welcome people from all over the world but we simply ask that immigrants come in legally, contribute to and assimilate into our culture, and don’t want to kill us.  You lock your doors at night because you don’t want strangers coming into your home and stealing your stuff.  Under Hillary’s plan, you would be forced to let anyone who comes into your home to come in whenever they want, they’ll have a right to eat your food, sleep in your bed, bring their friends in with them, and there won’t be a damn thing you can do about it!  That is not an America I want to live in, and it should scare the living shit out of anyone.

Project Veritas: Organizations tied to the DNC and the Clinton campaign were reportedly deliberately fomenting unrest and instigating protests at Trump & Pence events.

Notes from an interview with an unnamed FBI official reveal the State Department Undersecretary for Management Patrick Kennedy tried to horse-trade with the FBI, offering additional slots for the bureau overseas if they would de-classify a particular email marked “SECRET.”  According to the documents, an unnamed individual said he was “pressured” to “change the classified email to unclassified.”  “[Redacted] indicated he had been contacted by PATRICK KENNEDY, Undersecretary of State, who had asked his assistance in altering the email’s classification in exchange for a ‘quid pro quo,’” the 302 states. “[Redacted] advised that in exchange for marking the email unclassified, STATE would reciprocate by allowing the FBI to place more Agents in countries where they are presently forbidden.”

Campaign in touch with justice department regarding timetable of investigation.  There is evidence that Brian Fallon, press secretary for Hillary Clinton, colluded with the Department of Justice (DOJ) during the Clinton email investigation.  Brian Fallon wrote an email to Clinton 2016 staff where he warns that the: “DOJ just filed a briefing saying the gov’t proposes releasing HRC’s cache of work-related emails in January 2016.”  While the staff schedules an emergency damage control meeting, Fallon sends an email that shows he, a chief member of Hillary’s campaign, is colluding with the DOJ during the email investigation.  “DOJ folks inform me there is a status hearing in this case this morning, so we could have a window into the judge’s thinking about this proposed production schedule as quickly as today,” Fallon writes. Fallon even sends a follow up email to staff with further information he received from the Justice Department, saying that he found out the DOJ will be “proposing a revised schedule for producing the emails — this time on a rolling basis, in accordance with the judge’s order.”

A “Brief” Case Against Hillary Clinton

Well I know this post isn’t brief, but when you’re trying to describe a 69-year old woman who has dedicated her entire life to crime, corruption, and civil unrest, I think this didn’t turn out that bad.  I mean entire books could be filled with the full case (and many have).  In this post, I will methodically lay out all the reasons to vote for Donald Trump rather than Hillary Clinton.  Yes I have come out previously in support of Gary Johnson.  I am a Libertarian, I just don’t think, upon closer inspection, that Mr. Johnson is.  I may expand on that in a later entry.  
Be that as it may, Donald Trump is being slammed 24-7 by not only the Clinton campaign, but members of his own party, the so-called news media, even the debate moderators are arguing with him.  To listen to them, you’d think Donald Trump is some kind of monster.  He’s no boy scout and it took me a while to warm up to him.  But to me when you compare with Hillary Clinton, it’s not even a decision.  I lay out my case as follows.  I tried to keep each point as brief as possible, so if you disagree with my statements or want clarification, I’m glad to do it in a calm rational manner. 
TRIGGER WARNING:  The following post contains the hard truth, some cold hard inconvenient facts, and may be seen as controversial.  If you are highly sensitive or easily triggered, please click here now.  If you continue to read below this line, you agree to not hold the author responsible for any psychological damage.
 

One more thing… I’m open to rational discussion, but if you’re going to call me every “-ist” in the book for daring to disagree with the liberal media, then I have no time for you.  Let me also preface by saying that if your “evidence” why Trump is unqualified person is some video, or speech where he insulted someone or used a rude word, don’t even bother.  Yes I will concede that he says stupid things (so does he), he says insensitive things, things that I wish he wouldn’t say, and yes I’d rather he focus more on issues and specific plans.  But even the worst possible scenario for Trump can’t even hold a candle to what we already know we can expect from Hillary Clinton.  I don’t care what he might have said about some beauty queen, or some judge.  Yes, he’s no Boy Scout.  Who among us has NEVER said ANYTHING we wish we hadn’t??  But when you consider the alternative…
Pro-Trump arguments
  1. Returning the country to law & order.  We’ve seen a disregard for law in this country.  Secretaries of State getting away with espionage and treason, and an administration that fuels race riots and unrest by blaming the cops and insinuating that Americans have implicit bias.  We also are not enforcing our border laws.  We have tens of millions of illegals in our country living off of our social services, bringing dangerous drugs and weapons across our borders, and threating national security.  Now Obama and Clinton want to deliberately bring in more Syrian refugees despite the inability to screen them.  Meanwhile our veterans are dying waiting in long lines for treatment.
  2. He speaks the truth – say what you want about his political incorrectness and no-holds-barred language, but that’s PRECISELY what attracts his supporters to him!  Despite all the gaffes and the relentless personal attacks from Democrats and mainstream media, he remains in this race BECAUSE of his rhetoric, NOT in-spite of it.  Americans are tired of the polite, politically correct empty suits (on both sides) pandering for their vote and not delivering.  Trump is saying things that ordinary Americans, the silent majority, have been thinking all along but are afraid to say for the risk of being called the latest “ist.”  We’re sick and tired of endless government waste and spending, watching their tax money go to waste while their jobs disappear.  Tired of criminal aliens flaunting our porous borders, tired of political correctness and social justice getting in the way of solving our problems.  Tired of the disrespect for the law and for our police and military.  We’re sick of a government wanting to give free healthcare and college to illegal aliens while our own brave veterans are dying waiting in line for medical treatment from a broken VA system that Clinton barely talks about (oh but we got 10,000 refugees into our country ahead of schedule).  We’re sick of giving millions in foreign aid to other countries while our own infrastructure falls apart.  We’re sick of Presidents who go around the world spending more time apologizing for and lecturing to his own country, than standing up and defending us against Islamic terrorism.  We’re sick of government-as-usual from BOTH parties.  Trump is not a politician, he’s an outsider with the message that we live in a rigged system – AND HE’S RIGHT!  And ordinary Americans who have felt left behind by Washington, D.C. for decades are waking up and saying they’ve had enough.  That message resonates with people and the only reason that Trump isn’t blowing Clinton out in the polls is because unfortunately he doesn’t stick to that message enough.  But regardless of what happens on November 8, the Populist Nationalist Movement is here to stay, and questions that have lain dormant for decades are now coming into the open.
  3. Lowering taxes and easing regulations that stifle business.  Clinton’s plan involves just using government spending to solve everything, despite the fact it’s making things worse.  Reagan’s tax cuts brought in MORE tax revenue.  The number one reason that jobs are leaving the country is that they can’t put up with the increasing onerous taxes and regulations.  Somehow Democrats feel that taxing big corporations more will cause companies to stay – it will have the opposite effect.  The reason that smaller businesses aren’t hiring is because regulations like Obamacare are stifling their growth.
  4. Returning education to local control.  Hillary is on board with teachers’ unions who want to stifle school choice and bureaucrats who favor the one-size-fits-all Common Core standards which operate under the guise that the Federal government knows better than parents and teachers.
  5. Ending Obamacare which has broken all its promises, caused premiums to skyrocket, coverage to fall, and insurance companies to flee.
Anti-Clinton arguments (Part 1 of 1,876)

    I. Running up national defecit.  Democrats seem to believe there’s some magic money tree and that the solution to all problems is “making the rich pay their fair share.”  First, most of her donation money comes from big corporations.  Second, define “rich” and “fair.”  How is it the government’s business to decide how much of people’s hard-earned money they’re allowed to keep.  They cannot realize that higher taxes will simply drive away businesses and cause them to freeze hiring because of the higher expenses.
     
    II. Criminal and serial liar.  Whether it’s lying about not having secure emails on her server, or lying to the mothers of Benghazi victims that the attack was caused by video tapes when really it was her own incompetence at defending the compound, Hillary takes political truth-stretching and puts it on steroids.  But then again, what difference at this point, does it make?

    III. Race baiting & anti-police – Just like her boss, she feels that the answer to race riots isn’t law & order, or fixing the inner cities.  No, it’s the police force and the only solution is “national police standards.”  The Feds should  now be telling local cops how to do their job?  Dangerous.    

      IV. History of corruption.  

        A. Chinagate – selling Chinese political influence in exchange for illegal foreign campaign contributions 
        B. Pay to play: Half of the people granted appointments with Secretary Clinton were donors to the Clinton Foundation.  Selling political favors for campaign cash.
        C. The Russian Uranium One Deal: (Source: Breitbart.com and Peter Schweitzer’s “Clinton Cash”): “Uranium One was originally a Canadian company, bought out by Russia’s state atomic energy agency, Rosatom. Uranium One’s big shots were very, very generous donors to the Clinton Foundation, the “charity” through which so much foreign money flowed to Bill and Hillary ClintonThe New York Times reported in April 2015 about how those donations spiked as the deal for Rosatom to secure Uranium One and its holdings in the United States was brought to a successful conclusion, along with one of Bill Clinton’s biggest paydays ever: As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation.  Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million. Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations as well.  And shortly after the Russians announced their intention to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One, Mr. Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock... The Russian bank in question, Renaissance Capital, was so pleased with Bill Clinton’s performance at that $500k Q&A that Vladimir Putin, who was prime minister at the time, personally called Clinton to thank him.”
        D. The Clinton foundation took in hundreds of millions in donations to build a hospital in Haiti after a major earthquake, then the money disappeared and the hospital was never built.

        V. Hypocrisy.  Hillary Clinton accepts donations from Saudi Arabia – a country that treats women like property, doesn’t allow them to drive, work, or attend school without permission of their husbands.  A country that punishes homosexuality with death.  Then she turns around and pretends to stand for women and the LGBT community?  She talks about woman vote and glass ceilings and clutches her pearls when Donald Trump makes a sexist comment, yet she attacks her husband’s sexual victims, defends a man guilty of raping a 12-year old girl and laughs about it afterward?  Maybe those incidents have nothing to do with her candidacy.  But Trump’s don’t either.  The hypocrisy and double-standard is mind-boggling.

         Clinton’s email server scandal

        By the way, to those who think that Clinton’s email server scandal was “no big deal” or “just a mistake”, or “well nothing happened“, or “wasn’t really a crime,” here’s at least a partial list of the crimes she committed on the emails alone:

        • Flouting federal laws governing record-keeping requirements
        • Failing to preserve emails sent or received from her personal accounts, as required by law
        • Circumventing the Freedom of Information Act
        • Violating the “gross negligence clause” of the Espionage Act: 18-USC-793(f) : “Whoever, being entrusted with or having lawful possession or control of any document, … or information, relating to the national defense, (1) through gross negligence permits the same to be removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of his trust, or to be lost, stolen, abstracted, or destroyed, or (2) having knowledge that the same has been illegally removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of its trust, or lost, or stolen, abstracted, or destroyed, and fails to make prompt report of such loss, theft, abstraction, or destruction to his superior officer—Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both.”
        • 2009 Federal Records Act:  “Agencies that allow employees to send and receive official electronic mail messages using a system not operated by the agency must ensure that Federal records sent or received on such systems are preserved in the appropriate agency record keeping system.” By using a private email system, Secretary Clinton violated the Federal Records Act and the State Department’s Foreign Affairs Manual regarding records management, and worse, could have left classified and top secret documents vulnerable to cyber attack,’ Cause of Action Executive Director Dan Epstein said in an email to reporters. ‘This is an egregious violation of the law, and if it were anyone else, they could be facing fines and criminal prosecution.
        • Pretending to know that Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI) was classified
        • Transferring classified material orgininating at CIA, NSA, and other intelligence sources, through her unsecured network
        • Authoring hundreds of emails with classified information to people who did not have security clearance
        • Inducing aids to commit perjury
        • Lying to the FBI
        This woman doesn’t belong in the White House. Frankly, she belongs in an electric chair!  If you ask me, Trump was TOO nice to her in the first two debates.  These acts just by themselves disqualify Clinton from the White House, and many people have done serious jail time for far less!  Some may say that the email scandal is “just a mistake” and “but nothing happened.”  First, we don’t know that, especially with all the Wikileaks documents coming out.  Second, it doesn’t matter, it’s still illegal and cause for distrust.  If I were to drink a 6-pack of beer, get into a car and drive with a  BAC of .20, and a cop pulls me over.  Suppose I then say, “But officer, nothing happened.”  Do you think he’ll say, “Yeah you’re right, have a nice day?”  These actions show that there’s no favor that Clinton won’t sell, no one that she won’t sell herself, her office, and our national security to.  Even ONE item on this list would send anyone else to prison for a long time.  Say what you want about Trump and his bad language.  NOTHING even comes close to this!  You think Trump having the nuclear codes is scary?  Here’s something that scares me:  Some foreign powers hacked into her emails (which is entirely possible given what’s coming out of Wikileaks, and James Comey even stated this), and now they have blackmail information on the President of the United States.  Clinton has demonstrated a willingness to sell political favors for money, how half of the people who got an appointment with her at the State Department were Clinton Foundation contributers.  
        A small sampling of the Wikileaks revelations
        1. Campaign colluded with media, possibly even getting debate questions in advance
        2. Caught on tape saying that open borders are good – Hillary Clinton wants an open-borders society, where the world has a right to live at U.S. taxpayer expense, a right to cross our borders unchecked, and our national security means nothing.  Wikilkeaks documents catch her red-handed saying this! She even admitted that we can not possibly vet refugees.  We will effectively have no control of who’s entering our country, whether or not they mean us harm, and forever corroding respoect for national borders and the laws of our nation.
        3. Smearing and conspiring against Sanders.
        Whether it’s Bill’s sex scandals, Tyson Foods, Whitewater, Travelgate, Chinagate, the email server, Benghazi – FORTY YEARS of lies, deceit, and corruption with our nation on the line.  This woman did not just make a few mistakes – she is as much of a career criminal as a career politician – corrupt to the core.  She wants to treat the nation and the world as her personal bank account.  Opening up borders, devaluing our currency through massive spending, tax us into oblivion, selling our nation out to the highest bidder.  This is a DANGEROUS HUMAN BEING with no regard for anything but herself and her cronies.  And she does this under the guise of being on the side of the working class.  Yet in spite of all this, these self-righteous liberals want to clutch their pearls over a couple of video tapes of Trump saying nasty things?  REALLY???!!  Here’s the bottom line.  If I have a choice between a President with a long proven history of untrustworthiness and corruption, who wants to tax and spend us into oblivion into our national debt explodes, sells out her political influence to the highest bidder, accepts donations from foreign powers, is reckless with national security out of political expedience, botches security in Libya causing servicemen to be killed, and then lies about it, lies about her email scandal and deletes messages after receiving a subpoena, bleach-bits emails from her personal email server to hide them from investigation, takes 6-figure speaking fees from big corporations for private speeches, attacks rape victims and laughs about them, demeans and threatens her husband’s mistresses and rape victims, vs. someone who puts his foot in his mouth every now and then, it’s not even a decision!

        But Trump…
        1. is racist / anti-Mexican?  First, Mexican is not a race.  Second, he is against ILLEGAL immigration, not all immigration.  What is it about the leftist brain that fails to grasp this difference?  It happens that most of the illegals are coming from Mexico, and it’s true that it’s not the cream of the crop coming over.  Not ALL Mexicans are rapists and drug dealers.  But if even a tiny number of the ones sneaking across are, we’ve got a major crime and national security issue.  We lock our doors at night to protect our house, and that’s all the people calling for a wall want to do.  This has NOTHING to do with race.
        2. Hates women?  That’s why he promotes lots of women to executive positions in his corporations?  Why is it that when he says a few comments about SOME women, that liberals translate that into insulting all women?  If a tape gets leaked with Trump saying that all women are whores, then I’ll listen.  Until then, please put away the fake moralism and pearl-clutching.
        3. Doesn’t have temperament?  Ok here’s something that concerns me too.  But again when you compare his words to Hillary’s actions, it’s no competition.  Do you want to give the nuclear codes to a woman who would sell out our country to the highest bidder?  I don’t.  The same woman who complains about Trump’s temperament, calls half of his supporters a basket of deplorables, and is famous for insulting and abusive treatment of her staff, including Secret Service officers.  If that’s not the pot calling the kettle black, I don’t know what is.
        4. Doesn’t pay taxes?  When was the last time anyone filled out their taxes and wondered, “Gee I wonder how I might be able to pay more.”  Donald Trump did everything within the law, there’s nothing illegal.  If you lose money, it’s a tax write-off.  If you don’t like the tax laws then change them, but don’t blame Trump for using the EXACT same laws that Hillary Clinton and many of her supporters use too.
        5. Says some bad things? When I was in school, our teachers used to say to us “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt.”  I don’t care what Trump called a beauty pageant contestant 20 years ago.  His tape from the bus that came out before the debate.  Yes the talk was disgusting but really, has no one ever heard that language before?  If we put a rap beat to that tape, it would win a grammy award and everyone would call him an artist.  This pretend moral outrage is almost as bad as the comments themselves.  They’re just words people, and when you compare them to Clinton’s ACTIONS (both past and future), it’s not even a close call.  No one gives a flying flip what Donald Trump MIGHT have called Ms. Venezuela 20 years ago, or whether or not he thinks Barack Obama is American born.  NO ONE FUCKING CARES!!  Words hurt too? Fine, go run to your safe space with your unicorns and puppy dogs and pretend that nothing bad ever happens.  Come back and re-join the rest of us when you grow a spine.
        6. We are electing a President, someone who needs to be tough, tell us the truth, and stand up to world leaders.  We’re not electing a BFF, a Sunday School teacher, or a boy scout headmaster.  So for all of you on your moralistic high horse who get offended at every last thing, grow up and ask yourself what type of country you want to live in.  A safe country with secure borders, lower taxes, a booming economy and educational choice, where the leader says some bad things sometimes, or a socialist utopia with insecure borders, civil unrest, terrorism, massive taxes & inflation, and a depleted disrespected military, whose President DOES bad things ALL the time.  Why are we even having this discussion?  Say what you want, Donald Trump never put national security in jeopardy, he never sold military secrets for campaign contributions, and never defended a child rapist while publicly smearing the victim.
        FINAL THOUGHTS:
        * Conservatives make policy based on facts and logic.  Liberals make it based on virtue signaling, feelings and emotions.
        * When Trump makes a mistake, people get hurt feelings; when Hillary makes a mistake, people get killed!
