Prosecute

The day after the election this past November I remarked that if Trump truly intended to drain the swamp he would have to prosecute people, including elected politicians.

I stand by that statement today. If these politicians are as corrupt as is continually claimed, prosecute them. Same goes for the banks and corporations and bureaucrats and those who receive Federal money or privilege via corruption. If they engage in corruption – prosecute. Prosecute. Prosecute all of them.

At the end of the day there will be no other path to draining that swamp.

Perhaps Sessions and the DoJ are working on that and we are unaware. I hope that is the case. To date there has been little indication of any legal activity focused on these people.

Americans think that the government is corrupt. Americans think that Wall Street banks are corrupt. Americans think that who you are and how much money you have to a large degree determines Federal legislation, policy and regulation. Either the critical mass is very wrong (which would seem highly unlikely in this case) or prosecution is the appropriate path.

Either prosecute or present evidence to disabuse us of this notion that government is corrupt.

The sad truth is – if Trump cannot or will not prosecute then the corruption is and will continue to be a permanent feature of our lives.

Prosecute.

Hillary In Her Own Words

Here is what Hillary Clinton had to say earlier this week:

“I take responsibility for every decision I made, but that’s not why I lost.”

“It’s important that Americans…understand that Putin wants to bring us down. He was an old KGB agent.”

“We saw evidence of [Russian involvement] and we could track it. But they were shooed away.”

“The Russians are increasingly..launching cyber attacks. A lot of the information they’ve stolen they use for internal purposes. So this was different because they went public.”

“That was the conclusion. I think it’s fair to ask how did that actually influence the campaign and how did they know what messages to deliver. Who told them? Who were they coordinating with or colluding

with?  I’m leaning Trump.”

“Within one hour of the Access Hollywood tapes being leaked, the Russians or say Wikileaks — same thing — dumped the John Podesta emails.”

“The Russians in my opinion could not have known how best to weaponize that information unless they had been guided by Americans.”

“My email account was turned into the biggest scandal since Lord knows when.  And, you know, in the book I’m just using everything that anybody else said about it besides me to basically say this was the biggest nothing-burger ever. It was a mistake. I’ve said it was a mistake, and obviously if I could turn the clock back I wouldn’t have done it in the first place. But the way that it was used was very damaging.”

“They were run of the mill emails.  Stuff that were so common. Within one hour they dumped them and then began to weaponize them. They had their allies like Infowars say the most outlandish, absurd lies you could imagine. They had to be ready for that.”

“That really influenced the information people were relying on. If you look at Facebook the vast majority of the news items posted were fake. They were connected to, as we now know, the 1000 Russian agents… They were connected to the bots. It was such a new experience. I understand why people on Facebook would think ‘oh Hillary Clinton did that. I did not know that.'”

“Fake news…lies that’s a good word too.  The other side was using content that was just flat out false and delivering it in a very personalized way. Above the radar screen and below.”

“We know it hurt us, as I explain in my book, the Comey letter which was now we know partly based on a false memo from the Russians. It was a classic piece of Russian disinformation. So for whatever reason, he dumps that on me on October 28 and I immediately start falling.”

“Well if you went all the way back, doing things that others have done before was no longer acceptable. I didn’t break any rule nobody said don’t do this. I was very responsible and not at all careless. You end up with a situation that was exploited.”

“Here’s a really telling statistic that has been validated. I had this old fashioned idea that it would matter what I would do as president. We had a great tech program and a really good set of policies. In 2008 which as the last time you had a contested election, the policies put forth by President Obama, Senator McCain got 222 minutes of airtime. In 2016 despite my best efforts, we got 32 minutes, total, over 18 months.”

“Media forces on the Republican side are entrenched and very effective.  They’re beginning to call the shots on those local stations. Local TV is still incredibly powerful.”

“I have been on many speaking platforms with many men who are in office or running for office.And the crowd gets you going and I watch my male counterparts and they beat the podium and they yell and the crowd loves it. I have tried that and it’s been less than successful.”

“Men got paid for the speeches they made…I got paid for the speeches I made.”

“I have to say, Walt I never thought someone would throw out my entire career…because I made a couple of speeches.”

I believe there is little to add to this other than that this entire conversation explains exactly why Hillary lost the election – two points bring that into focus:

1) That the accuracy and legitimacy of the emails were never denied is damning. The emails speak for themself in how the Clinton team behaved, viewed the world, viewed the American people, so on and so forth.

2) The operative sentence in this conversation has to be “I didn’t break any rule nobody said don’t do this.” Nobody said, “Don’t do this” – so that makes it okay to do? That is the logic we desire in a President? Okay to use the media to acquire debate questions beforehand? Okay to use your position as Secretary of State to acquire donations to your foundation? Okay to work United States government deals with the Russians where your husband also happened to get paid? That in Hillary’s mind it was okay as long as “nobody said don’t do this” is exactly why Hillary Clinton is not President.

The American public figured that out. That Hillary has yet to figure that out is disturbing.

Donald Trump may be morally deficient but Hillary is clearly clueless that by relying on other people to say “don’t do this” in order to know right from wrong demonstrates someone who is void of morals and she continues to reaffirm that void each time she speaks.

A Full-Fledged Assault On Truth And Reason

“And here’s what that means to you, the class of 2017. You are graduating at a time when there is a full-fledged assault on truth and reason.” – Hillary Clinton this past week

At election time this last November 67% of voters did not think Hillary was “honest and trustworthy.” 62% did not think Trump was “honest and trustworthy.” Hillary was considered less trustworthy and honest than Trump! You do grasp how difficult an achievement it is to be considered less honest and trustworthy than Donald Trump don’t you? The Washington Post of all publications actually said, “Today, it is the American people who have been burned, time and again, by Hillary Clinton’s dreadful lies.”

When you are the Democrat candidate for President and the Washington Post calls you a dreadful liar – it is unimaginably bad.

My point in this is not that Hillary is a habitual liar – that is well known and beyond dispute. Trump lies all the time too. My point to this is the obtuseness required for someone such as Hillary to make a commencement speech claiming “You are graduating at a time when there is a full-fledged assault on truth and reason” after having spent thirty plus years building a career and fortune by lying and assaulting reason. As I said here and here – the Democrats simply do not get this. The lies, the disingenuousness, the fraud, the hypocrisy has hit a level where even Donald Trump appears to be a desirable alternative.

Democrat Party: “Who can we get in front of a camera to call Trump a liar and untrustworthy? I know, let us get quite possibly the only person in the country considered less honest and trustworthy than Trump! That is the trick, that will do it!”

Obtuseness has become the primary character trait of the Left. The Left exist in something akin to ‘Opposite World.’

“We oppose enriching the 1% so we are going to adopt and support policies that transfer trillions of dollars from the poor and middle class to the 1%.”

“We oppose the bombing and killing of innocent people in the middle east so we will bomb and kill innocent people in the middle east each and every day that Obama is in office and Hillary and Bernie will promise to continue that!”

“We oppose the evil corporations so we will pass laws requiring you to purchase the products of the corporations that we hate and fine you if you do not purchase those products and guarantee the corporations a profit made on the backs of the poor and middle class! That is how much we hate those evil corporations!”

Hillary Clinton saying, “there is a full-fledged assault on truth and reason” simply adds exclamation points to the hypocrisy.

It is very much as Kunstler said, “Sometime societies just collectively go insane.” I am unaware of any other viable explanation for the phenomena. To add to the insanity – the Democrat Party has essentially adopted a campaign motif proclaiming “Trump lies more than we do!” as though the voters will somehow find that a compelling argument to cast votes for Democrats.

According to Webster’s Dictionary:

Ob`tuse´

1.Not pointed or acute; blunt; – applied esp. to angles greater than a right angle, or containing more than ninety degrees.

2.Not having acute sensibility or perceptions; not alert, especially to the feelings of others; dull; stupid; as, obtuse senses.

3.Dull; deadened; as, obtuse sound.

The rational people in Democrat Party are without doubt searching high and low in order to discover someone, somewhere who can carry the water for them who is also not a known crook and liar – and they are failing miserably at finding that person. Due to the entire Democrat Party platform being premised on the right to steal from the poor and middle class and give to the wealthy it is entirely possible that they will never find that person. The entire political argument in the United States has come down to if you support the Democrat Party transferring wealth to the 1% or if you oppose it. This is why you have a President Trump and if you do not yet grasp this is the reason you have a President Trump then you will continue to occupy a fictional universe.

Let’s see how long it takes them to figure that out…

Trump Exposed. The Shocking Revelation That Ensures Impeachment. A Tribe Exclusive.

Been thinking. The Trump collusion story finally makes perfect sense. The New York real estate mogul was sure the DNC and Podesta had compromising dirt on their computers. So what did he do? Did he talk to a guy who knows a guy and hire a hack job here local for a couple million? (Put American hackers back to Work Again!) NO!
 
He let loose his campaign to negotiate with Russia over global cables that everyone knows are spied on by all the cool agencies from every nation and villain in the Bond movies.
 
“Hey, Vlad, the New York Times is being pretty rough on me. Do you think you could dig up some dirt on Hillary and could you see if you can, ya know, change the narrative? That would be yuge if you could counter her billion dollar campaign machine, and neutralize the full weight of America’s media and give me the presidency.
 
“If you could do that for me, you have no idea the things I’ll do for you! I’ll increase US energy production to torpedo your major global asset. I’ll increase US defense spending. I’ll badger NATO to increase its own defense spending. I’ll blow up your toy dictator’s planes in Syria. I’ll bash you at the UN. This is a deal you can’t refuse!
 
Vlad calls back on the red Bat Phone, assured of total confidentiality. “This sound good, Donald. I’ll give you election. I’ll take off shirt and flex pecks. Ladies go crazy. I’ll…
“Wait. No, not necessary. I got American voters under little finger. They do what I want. I’ll just leak few Podesta emails to show what weasel is Hillary. Then you win. Then you do all you promise. Da?”
 
“Wait, Donald…offer only include weasels DNC and Podesta. I’m not sharing stuff I got from bathroom server. That stuff too potent and sensitive.”

The Big News About Obama ABC NBC CBS and CNN Aren’t Telling You.

The National Security Agency under former President Barack Obama routinely violated American privacy protections while intercepting and analyzing internet communications. Circa news has obtained a previously classified order by the Foreign Service Intelligence Court which concludes that about 5% or 1 of every 20 intercepts violated Americans’ civil rights, and further, that the NSA failed to disclose the scope of violations to the FISC.

 

In other words, the worst suspicions of administration critics are confirmed. The Obama administration routinely conducted electronic surveillance of Americans. And not just any Americans. Other recent disclosures of CIA coordination with foreign intelligence agencies confirm how much of this stolen information was used: to try to damage the Trump campaign and swing the 2016 election. The administration did do exactly what it is alleging the Trump campaign did: hack and collude and try to steal the election.
 
In a sane world, this story would be massive. In a world with a serious media—that wasn’t the attack arm of the Democrat Party–this story would lead the news casts for days. In a society with better informed citizens, this story would be the subject of anger and concern even if the networks are trying to black it out.
 
We don’t live in that world. Since the news broke a few days ago, a Google search for “Obama National Security Administration surveillance” shows intense interest and alarm by conservative outlets, from Fox News to specialty websites, but not a single mention from any other national network or publication.
 
There are obvious reasons the national media would prefer to keep this story invisible. To say it makes the Obama administration look bad is an understatement. It reveals intelligence officials as partisan agents. It bolsters Trump’s allegations that Obama spied on him. It detracts from the fabricated frenzy against Trump and collusion with Russia. It raises the obvious question how an unheard of source like CIRCA broke the news of a major Obama scandal while the networks were too busy protecting the administration to cover it.
 
This story will stay out there. It will get legs. Some reporter who, through guilt or ambition wants to pretend to do real reporting, will ask Obama or former NSA head James Clapper or CIA Director John Brennan to comment or to deny the story. This could explode yet.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

 
 

The Despair Of The Democrat Party

Republican Greg Gianforte defeated Democratic opponent Rob Quist to win the Montana special election a day after Gianforte was charged with assault. Let that sink in. Gianforte allegedly body slammed a reporter – and he still defeated the Democrat handily.

 

I cannot imagine the depth of despair in the Democrat Party at the moment. To sum it up – even if the Republican is committing violent felonies people will still prefer the Republican to the Democrat.

 

Why on earth is this?

 

Here is a symptom of the ‘why’ this is: “In this new world that we live in we can’t isolate ourselves, we can’t hide behind a wall.” – Barack Obama said this on Thursday while standing behind a wall. Can’t make this stuff up.

 

The Democrats have become so accustomed to having the major media and Saturday Night Live and Jon Stewart and Colbert and such cover their tracks, their hypocrisies, their corruption – they assume they can be as flagrantly disingenuous as they wish and no one will notice.

 

That is not the case anymore. For the eight years of Obama we suffered through the greatest wealth transfer in all of history – transferring wealth from the poor and middle class to the very wealthy. Most people understand this. They may not be able to explain why or what the mechanism was – but they know this happened. They know they got poorer while the very wealthy became much much wealthier under Obama. They also know that those who got much much wealthier support Democrats. Most people understand that the traditional claim of the Democrat Party that they want to help the poor and middle class is unadulterated bullshit. Furthermore most people know that the Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders wings of the Democrat Party will only accelerate this wealth transfer to the 1%. The Democrat Party has become synonymous with closing options and opportunities for regular people to work their way up, with the crony mega-deals they make that cost you wealth and opportunity, with trillions and trillions of dollars they transfer to their buddies while throwing you crumbs. This is what the Democrat Party has become and no amount of Saturday Night Live and Jon Stewart and Colbert and Washington Posts and New York Times and Los Angeles Times and CNN and MSNBC can hide that reality any longer.

 

The Obama’s and Clinton’s and Warren’s and such all want you to believe they are on your side while their friends get unimaginably wealthy from the policies and legislation the Democrats push – and your life gets more difficult week after week after week. In the meantime Democrats keep giving speeches about evil walls while standing behind a wall.

 

The word ‘obtuse’ does not even begin to address the issue.

 

This is why a Republican who commits violent felonies will still beat the Democrat for a congressional seat. This is why a Republican President who is a full time ass and part-time lunatic is preferred to any Democrat. Earlier this week I posted how the Democrats cannot bring an end to the wealth transfers without also bringing an end to the welfare state they have sponsored. It is the same story the world over – the welfare state is not the solution to wealth inequality – it is the cause. The Democrat Party has a Chavista vision and they simply cannot confront the reality that this vision is the source of the wealth inequality because confronting that reality will result in the ideological decimation of the party. In other words – in order to fix their problem the Democrat Party has to say something akin to, “We are sorry, we were wrong.”

 

We all know they would rather keep losing seats to asses, felons and lunatics than have to say that.

 

Get the popcorn ready… extra butter this time.
