I’m not one for getting further involved in Middle East crap, but it’s time to call Iran’s bluff. Next time they send motor boats to “threaten” a US destroyer in international waters, blow one of them out of the water and quit being chickenshit! Grow some balls!
Just a quick note. Obama has shown his true colors in dealing with the flooding in Louisiana. He’s not running anymore for office so screw the proletariat, let them eat cake I’m golfing. He has never given a damn about anyone but himself. See previous rant on Kate Steinle.
And I apologize for not posting more recently but for the most part everything going on just confirms what I have said previously and I didn’t want to waste your time saying I told you so, but I told you so! See all my rants on Clinton slush fund, Clinton emails, world leaders unrest with a potential president who would put America first and expect others to pay their own way, and Trump finally pointing out that Democrats are the ones holding blacks down as a permanent underclass for votes.
Quickie. Did you see where Kamau Bell, a black activist comedian tried to start an online stampede to get Michael Phelps to not carry the US flag in the opening ceremonies for the Olympics and give that honor to our female Muslim fencer. He is best known for finding pretty much everything racist.
Yeah let’s get behind that. The most decorated Olympian of all time should give the honor of carrying our flag to a first time Olympian because she wears a Muslim head scarf under her fencing mask. This is the ultimate in identity politics.
Another quickie, but while watching the Five today, once again Dana Perino and others don’t seem to understand the constitution. People, no one outside this country has any right to immigrate to this country –NO ONE! We could block all immigration or block all Jews or Muslims or Asians and it would be constutional. The Bill of Rights applies to US citizens and those legally in the country. Outsiders have NO rights period — end of this ridiculous debate.
Just another quickie, but did you see that a self proclaimed group of radical feminists, the Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF) has filed a federal lawsuit against DOJ and the Department of reEducation alleging that it’s transgender bathroom and locker room rules violate civil rights laws by re-defining the meaning of “sex” to include whatever gender you identify as. They also allege on behalf of the two women they are representing that the new requirements put their clients at risk of physical and emotional harm by having to undress in locker rooms with naked males.
It will be interesting to see how the mainstream media will cover this. They were positively apoplectic about HB2 calling the Republicans who passed it homophobic and bigoted. How will they react to this development. They probably won’t cover it because it doesn’t fit their preferred narrative. Hypocrites!
Just another quickie here on this nonsense of political correctness and micro-aggression. There is no such thing and for support of this proposition I’m citing no less a light than Obama. He made that pronouncement in a speech a couple of days ago, and if the divider-in-chief calls this nonsense then I think it’s case closed. Really, does anyone with a brain seriously think you own whatever you call your “culture “. The history of progress in the world is a history of cross pollination of cultures.
If you want to put ketchup on your egg roll, knock yourself out. If I can’t wear a sombrero, then you can’t wear Levi’s or use your cell phone or computer. Get real, every culture incorporates elements from other cultures and only a racial or ethnic provocateur would maintain otherwise. When the leader of the grievance industry calls BS, it’s time to put this baby to sleep once and for all.
Is it just me or is it true that USA athletes are being routinely booed and/or dissed at the games. It seems to me that wasn’t the way things were at previous games. I don’t know why this is the case but it may be that the last 12 years of feckless foreign policy have not been good for our standing in the world.
Just a couple of things worth your time in viewing. The first is a video of Obama speaking in Germany in 2014 telling the truth about his views of us and his desire as I’ve indicated previously to set up a worldwide socialist government. It’s only 19 seconds. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YfRtbIQ1kTw&feature=youtu.be
The second is an article by Dinesh D’Souza explaining the dark history of the Democratic party. A history of promoting slavery, setting up the KKK and Jim Crow laws. That party takes credit for the civil rights legislation, when the truth is that more Democrats opposed it and it wouldn’t have passed without significant Republican support. Things all got ass backwards because the narrative now is that the South was evil and now Republicans are strong there. However, when all the bad stuff was going on, the South was controlled by the Democrats. It’s not long and it will be quite educational as well. http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2016/07/22/dinesh-dsouza-secret-history-democratic-party.html
He also has out a movie about this which opened last week called Hillary’s America: The secret History of the Democratic Party.
And one last thing I couldn’t pass up. Isn’t interesting that when Trump suggested that Russia post Hillary’s 30,000 deleted emails, her campaign came out and said that was treasonous to suggest a foreign power hack our state secrets. Remember folks, these are emails that Hillary said she deleted because they were entirely personal stuff — like plans for Chelsea’s wedding and yoga moves and the like. That can’t treasonous! Or did she delete state secrets and pay to play Clinton Foundation stuff? Can’t have it both ways Crooked Hillary!
And to reiterate a point I have previously made, in all likelihood Russia, China, Iran and others already have all those emails and the one thing we don’t need is a president who will be subject to blackmail by our enemies.
Just was watching Special Report and George Will continued his nonsensical support of Hillary. He needs to get back on his meds! He made the incredible statement that it was determined that Hillary violated regulations but not laws. BULLSHIT!!! As indicated in my last rant she violated several statutes, including the one involving perjury. George get your shit together because everyone is laughing behind your self important back. I’m starting to question why I ever thought you had a brain. He is just another self important empty suit.
I am going to be starting a series of rants on how this country lost its way, dealing with multiculturalism vs assimilation and the nonsense of cultural appropriation, micro aggressions etc. it will undoubtedly take up a lot of space and so I will try to keep it broken up into short posts so it won’t be to overwhelming.
I thought that now all the bloviating politicians and pundits have finished talking at cross purposes, I would do a wrap up rant on the email scandal.
Hillary should be in jail and Comey should be fired. Comey laid out an ironclad case for misuse and mishandling of classified information and then decided that he was not only the investigator but also the prosecutor and declared no reasonable prosecutor would take the case and therefore he recommended against an indictment. It is not his job to determine what to prosecute and what not to prosecute. His job is to find the evidence and then let the people paid to prosecute cases decide if they want to do so. He clearly took the fall to prevent Lynch from having to make a decision after her tete-a-tete will Bill Clinton — which a commenter on this blog noted couldn’t have occurred by happenstance. In fact, it was reported early on that Bill delayed his scheduled departure by 30 minutes so that he would still be on the tarmac when Lynch got there. Not a chance meeting but a planned meeting.
Let’s look at the facts. The applicable standard is gross negligence, and anyone who has been following the story knows that the legal definition of gross negligence is extreme carelessness — exactly what Comey said Hillary was guilty of. Thus, there is no question she committed multiple felonies under the applicable statute. And I GUARANTEE you that an awful lot of prosecutors would take that case in a heartbeat.
But Comey then went on to declare that Hillary didn’t intend to violate the law and so all is well in Hillaryland. [I suggest if you get picked up on a DUI charge that you tell the judge that you didn’t intend to drive drunk and see how far that gets you.] However, let’s take a serious look at that conclusion. The illegal private servers didn’t just magically fall from the sky and she stumbled across them and was forced to use them. Folks, she set out from the get go to hide her actions as Secretary of State from us, no doubt to keep us from seeing just how bad a job she was doing and keep her presidential aspirations alive, but more importantly to keep the pay for play between her influence peddling and the Clinton Foundation (slush fund) from public scrutiny.
[By the way, if you read my earlier rants on the slush fund I indicated that only about 8% of the money given to the foundation went to charity. It was reported this week that according to the foundation’s own filings the number is 10%. I suppose with the democratic and Clinton spin machine working the story will be that the foundation has increased its charitable activities by 25%. This scam charity should be called out as just that and contributions to it should not be tax deductible and all the rest of the money used for private jet travel etc. should be treated as taxable income to the Clintons.]
Back to the subject at hand, so intent on Hillary’s part is evident as I indicated some time ago, one of the emails involved Hillary telling a staffer to take off the classified markings on a document and then send it to her unsecured server. Intent couldn’t be clearer.
Additionally, she violated the Federal Records Act and the Freedom of Information Act intentionally. She removed federal records and destroyed them and in another example of her violation of the national security statutes, Comey said that in the thousands of emails she thought she destroyed as “personal”, several contained classified information which is clearly covered under the prohibition from removing and destroying classified information. Removal and destruction of non-classified agency documents is covered under the Federal Records Act.
Anyway you look at it, Hillary knowingly and willingly set out to hide her official activities from the Congress and the public and to transmit and receive classified information on an unsecure system subject to being and in all likelihood having been hacked by Russia, China, Iran and pretty much any other sophisticated nation or hacker. And remember that Comey stated that there were several documents that she transmitted and/or received over her illegal server that in fact had classified markings on them.
People, including Bill O’Reilly have sought to contrast Clinton’s activities from those of General Petraeus on the grounds that the general intentionally gave the documents to his girlfriend. Hillary gave all her documents to her attorney who Comey said didn’t have a security clearance. This thing with the attorney’s security clearance has been going back and forth for awhile. As indicated in an earlier rant, it was reported on the Five that he didn’t have a clearance. Then State reported that he did — which I suspect was backdated to cover Hillary’s backside. Thus Comey reported what he found and then the next day it was put out again the he did have a Top Secret clearance. People it makes no difference from a legal perspective. Petraeus’s sweety had a Top Secret clearance and they still charged him!!
Furthermore, there are numerous other people who Hillary effectively gave access to her documents. The server guy and the folks at the server farm in I seem to think it was Colorado or Pennsylvania that backed up and serviced her homegrown illegal server. These were all national security violations!!
REMEMBER AS I INITIALLY REPORTED HERE AND AS FAR AS I CAN TELL NO ONE ELSE HAS STATED THE FOLLOWING: For access to classified information you need to meet two criteria. First you have to have a security clearance at or above the classified level of the information sought. Second and equally as important, you need to have a federally determined NEED TO KNOW the information you are seeking. Thus the fact that the general’s sweety had a Top Secret clearance didn’t matter because she didn’t have an official need to know that information.
And as I stated in earlier rants, either Hillary intentionally transmitted classified information over an unsecure, illegal server or she’s too damn stupid to be the president. Comey chose too damn stupid and Hillary is apparently jumping on that bandwagon — which is pretty interesting since she’s essentially running on her lack of a penis and her demonstrated competency. I guess she’s down to just lack of a penis.
What should be interesting to watch now is how the FBI and DOJ are going to handle the fact that as Comey clearly set out, Hillary committed perjury when she lied under oath to the Congressional panel investigating Benghazi. There were several bald faced lies and you can bet the administration doesn’t want anyone to pursue this because the only get out of jail free card on this issue is a presidential pardon!
Well folks anyone supporting Hillary is either voting for a moron or an intentional felon. Tough choice.
And lastly, lest you forget, foreign adversaries NO DOUBT HAVE all of Hillary’s emails, especially the ones she sought to destroy. Do we really need a president subject to blackmail by our adversaries? Can we trust that in negotiating with foreign powers she would get the best deal or would she sell us down the river to keep her corrupt and most likely criminal activities a secret? Not a choice we should have to make!
