CHARLOTTE vs. OKLAHOMA

Saw an interesting bit by Rush Limbaugh today which makes perfect sense for why there is rioting and unrest in Charlotte and not in Oklahoma.  Remember that in Charlotte it was a black individual shot by a black police officer, whereas in Oklahoma is was a black individual shot by a white female officer who has been charged with manslaughter.  Yet there has been no rioting in Oklahoma while in Charlotte they have been calling for boycotting all white owned businesses in addition to rioting.  Sure it makes sense to boycott white business because a black shot a black?

What Rush pointed out  —  and it makes perfect sense  —  is that Oklahoma is solidly behind Trump while North Carolina is still an important battleground state where Trump has a small lead.  Soros and his thugs want to create division in order to potentially get a large black turnout to up Hillary’s chances in NC.  This also explains why over 70% of those arrested in Charlotte are from other states.  It’s just another day in the Soros/Alinski storm trooper offensive.  Sad that there are enough myopic idiots that it might work.  Hopefully Fox will pick up on this although my guess is that tonight’s debate will dominate all news for several days.

STUDENT DEBT CRISIS

There is a very simple way to solve the student debt crisis.  Make student debt dischargeable in bankruptcy!  When the last overhaul was done on the bankruptcy system, one part that was changed as I recall was to make sure student loans could not be discharged in bankruptcy.  Thus the political elite protected their friends and donors in the banking community at the expense of everyone else.  These are the same bunch of self-serving crooks who bailed out the banks from the inevitable result of their greed in making mortgage loans they knew were never going to be paid.

And now it appears that they may be headed that way again and looking for another bailout.  By the way although my tax dollars went to bail them out I don’t recall any reduction in MY mortgage balance!!

But back to the subject at hand, if banks knew that student loans could be discharged in bankruptcy, they would be much more cautious in their lending decisions which would necessarily cause universities to be much more restrained in raising their tuition and fees since there would be no pot of gold to pay them.  They might even think about offering real education and not Lady Gaga studies and the like which literally dominate university offerings with no real chance of being worth a damn in the job market.

The political elites and their financial donors have in effect created a whole new class of indentured servants  —  graduates burdened by significant undischargeable debt in a disastrous job market caused by the same political elites.

We bailed out the banks once.  Now it’s time to let students bail themselves out through bankruptcy if necessary, and if the banks have to eat it then so be it.  And by the way, in closing this rant, free college is a stupid idea, and obviously it’s not free.  Someone, namely us taxpayers are going to have to pay for it and it will just lead to a lot more people who really have no business going to college to go and study more and more useless course offerings.

HILLARY’S CAMPAIGN DEFRAUDS DONORS

This got scarce coverage last week.  I don’t think that I saw anything on the tube or an article on it other than the one cited below.

“Hillary for America processed a total of $94 in unauthorized charges to Carol Mahre’s US Bank account. This follows a pattern in which unwitting donors are charged multiple times, but always for a total of less than $100, which is a key trigger point for banks’ internal action systems.

Hillary Clinton’s campaign is stealing from her poorest supporters by purposefully and repeatedly overcharging them after they make what’s supposed to be a one-time small donation through her official campaign website, multiple sources tell the Observer.

The overcharges are occurring so often that the fraud department at one of the nation’s biggest banks receives up to 100 phone calls a day from Clinton’s small donors asking for refunds for unauthorized charges to their bankcards made by Clinton’s campaign. One elderly Clinton donor, who has been a victim of this fraud scheme, has filed a complaint with her state’s attorney general and a representative from the office told her that they had forwarded her case to the Federal Election Commission.

“We get up to a hundred calls a day from Hillary’s low-income supporters complaining about multiple unauthorized charges,” a source, who asked to remain anonymous for fear of job security, from the Wells Fargo fraud department told the Observer. The source claims that the Clinton campaign has been pulling this stunt since Spring of this year. The Hillary for America campaign will overcharge small donors by repeatedly charging small amounts such as $20 to the bankcards of donors who made a one-time donation. However, the Clinton campaign strategically doesn’t overcharge these donors $100 or more because the bank would then be obligated to investigate the fraud.

“We don’t investigate fraudulent charges unless they are over $100,” the fraud specialist explained. “The Clinton campaign knows this, that’s why we don’t see any charges over the $100 amount, they’ll stop the charges just below $100. We’ll see her campaign overcharge donors by $20, $40 or $60 but never more than $100.” The source, who has worked for Wells Fargo for over 10 years, said that the total amount they refund customers on a daily basis who have been overcharged by Clinton’s campaign “varies” but the bank usually issues refunds that total between $700 and $1,200 per day.”

Exclusive: Hillary Clinton Campaign Systematically Overcharging Poorest Donors

by Liz Crokin

The woman has no shame and will steal from anyone.  As I said a long time ago, the Clinton’s believe in income redistribution, but unlike Obama, their definition is take from wherever you can get it and keep it!!

Tomorrow I will solve the student debt crisis.

OBAMA AND NATIONAL SOVEREIGNTY

You will recall that a few weeks ago I published a link to speech in which Obama said that we were too stupid to govern ourselves and the best system would be to yield our rights to an overarching government.  Some people questioned whether he could be so stupid as to make such an outrageous statement.  He’s in the final inning of his disastrous presidency and no longer pretends to be anything but a fan for a worldwide socialist government controlled by non-elected elites.  He even said this country has too much capitalism.

“Obama also reminded the assembled nations that a central part of this wonderful new globalized world is surrendering national sovereignty. “Powerful nations, like my own, [must] accept constraints,” Obama said.

“I am convinced in the long run, giving up some freedom of action — not giving up our ability to protect ourselves or pursue our core interests, but binding ourselves to the international rules over the long term — enhances our security,” he said.”

IRS SCAM

Just in case you don’t know, the IRS will not call you on the phone and tell you that they are going to file a lawsuit against you unless you immediately call them back and pay money.  This is a scam apparently being perpetrated against senior citizens.  I get several calls every few weeks.  It’s a scam. Just ignore it.  The IRS is never going to call you to head off a lawsuit.  The IRS will contact you by mail if they have questions and if they are going to file a lawsuit against you, you will know when ahead of time.  This is a public service announcement!

EPIPEN VS VIVITROL

Now to get back to a subject that is near and dear to me  —  VIVITROL.  The recent uproar over the increase in the cost of Epipens from $100 to $600 caught my attention. That’s ridiculous but nothing compared to the cost of Vivitrol.  The cost for the Epipens is a yearly cost and there are effective alternatives which aren’t as well known do to the effective marketing of Epipens.

The cost of  Vivitrol is $1400/month.  And there is no alternative that I know of other than the daily pills which are effective but not the same as a monthly shot for reasons I have previously noted.  There is no other monthly shot.  Now you may say that Epipens are life savers, but if you read my earlier rants on the subject you would know that Vivitrol is also a lifesaver and in fact might save your life if it prevents someone from driving while drunk.

Instead of regulating the size of your sodas and other nonsense, the government would do well to make sure that lifesaving drugs can be obtained at reasonable prices.  This is particularly true in the case of Vivitrol since as I indicated previously, the federal government was involved in the development of naltrexone the pill form of Vivitrol.

HILLARY REDUX

Just a quick comment on the recently released FBI notes on Queen Hillary’s interview.   You will recall that a few weeks ago when Comey first came out and said Hillary was guilty but incompetent, I stated that she was running basically on her supposed competence and her lack of a penis and she was basically agreeing with Comey that she was incompetent which left her running on only her lack of a penis.  Now that the highly redacted notes have been released it becomes all the more apparent that she’s down to lack of a penis.  Over three dozen times she plead ignorance of anything and everything to do with classified information and her servers and their set up and briefings she was given.

As Secretary of State, she had the highest level of classification authority, meaning she and people she delegated authority to could classify documents up to and including top secret and special access programs.  In her earlier book as I previously noted she bragged about all the sensitive classified information she handled, but now she doesn’t know anything about how documents are classified or marked or what constitutes the type of information that can and must be classified.

Lack of a penis is not a sufficient stand alone qualification to be president!!

THE NUKE CODES

I didn’t think I’d need to address this, but it came to my attention over the weekend that a person in this neighborhood has said he won’t vote for Trump because he doesn’t trust him with the nuke codes.  This is a person who I considered to be quite bright on most things, so this really surprised me.

Folks, Clinton is well known as an established dyed in the wool hawk.  She is much more likely to get us in a war than Trump.  She caused the mess in Libya and then let four Americans die and lied about it to cover her ass.  Under Hillary we will no doubt end up in a ground war in the Middle East.  And if the idiot in chief gets his way, he wants to establish official US policy as we will NEVER use nukes first — only in retaliation if someone with nukes launches them at us first.  An exceedingly stupid position that will undoubtedly lead to major armed conflicts around the world.

China, Russia and North Korea have huge standing armies that they won’t hesitate to use to control their neighbors if they know we’re never going to use nuclear weapons.

On the other  hand, I like the fact that some people think Trump is crazy.  He’s not but I like the fact that he scares some foreign nations.  It’s about time we stop being the world’s patsy under this feckless president.  And lest you forget, Reagan was also considered to be crazy and unable to be in charge of the nuke codes.  In fact, for those of you old enough to remember, at one point during the race, Reagan said he would use nukes against I think Poland.  At any rate during one of the debates Carter brought up the statement and Reagan gave him one of his “there you go agains” and denied making such an absurd statement.  The next week Carter’s camp put out a tv add showing Reagan deny making such a statement in the debate followed by the video of Reagan making the statement during a speech.  So I don’t think Trump will be any crazier than Reagan.

TPP

All you need to know about the TPP is that it’s over 5000 pages long, which means no one knows what’s in it.  Remember Obamacare was only 2000 pages and no one still knows all the hidden time bombs in that disaster!  Also Hillary called it the gold standard in trade deals, and you know she is the queen of globalization.  Yeah, she says she’s against it now because Bernie pushed her so hard on it, but I guarantee you that if she’s elected she’ll put a bandaid on it and declare it once again the gold standard.  There are few people more integrated into globalism than the Clintons and their slush fund pay to play foundation.

Here is the real problem with the TPP.  It sets up an international group that can make binding rules for the US economy even, according to senator Sessions, including on immigration.  These dictates would supersede US laws and court decisions.  It is precisely the same bullshit that led to Brexit.  We need to reassert our sovereignty and only Trump will do it.
