The fix is in: First Obama endorses Hillary before her name clears a criminal investigation. Now, Loretta Lynch had a private meeting with Bill Clinton.

How does it feel to know the next Administration will be as crooked and self-serving as Hussein's?

Update:  Loretta Lynch met with Bill Clinton several days ago,  in a 30 minute,  private, closed door meeting  . . .  as many of you already know.  Understand that Bill "Horn Dog" Clinton is part of the investigation into Hillary, a potential witness,  and one who plays a key role in the Bill and Hillary Foundation.  It is preposterous that we are even having a discussion about this.  

In recent day,  Lynch and her DOJ won an injunction against revealing Hillary's emails with concern to her foundation,  another proof that the "fix is in."  

Lynch is just another slut for the Progressive cause.

After two freaking years of saying "no" to similar airstrickes, Obama finally did something that matters.

Trump up 43 -39 in national poll. He has been trending up for three weeks.

Thursday, June 30, 2016
The tables have turned in this week’s White House Watch. After trailing Hillary Clinton by five points for the prior two weeks, Donald Trump has now taken a four-point lead.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey of Likely U.S. Voters finds Trump with 43% of the vote, while Clinton earns 39%. Twelve percent (12%) still like another candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Obama - as I write - is speaking of an integrated North American alliance.

Obama - as I write - is speaking of an integrated North American alliance as he references "integrated borders."    Obviously,  he believes that Trump cannot win the coming election,  so here comes his version of the European Union and a borderless North American Continent (what do you think "integrated borders" actually mean?).  

More on this later this evening  . . . .   just wanted to be the first to let you know that he is not finished with the US and intends to suck all the air out of the room where Hillary is concerned. 

Read this article published yesterday (Jun 28):

EU-style "North American Union" would kill U.S. national sovereignty ... Nieto is attending a North American leaders summit in Ottawa on ...

The 14 questions Barack, our resident Islamic sympathizer, refuses to answer:

In his June 7 letter to Obama’s counsel, Gowdy disclosed what questions he wanted answered.

1.The White House issued a readout of your meeting with senior
administration officials on September 10, 2012, indicating
“specific measures” had been taken to “prevent 9/11 related
attacks.” What were these specific measures, and how did these
specific measures differ from specific measures taken on prior
anniversaries of September 11?
2. When did you first learn a U.S. facility in Benghazi, Libya, had
been attacked? What were you told, and by whom? Were you
informed Sean Smith had been killed during the initial attack?
3. What orders or direction, if any, did you give to Secretary of
Defense Leon Panetta upon learning of the initial attack? Did
you or anyone at your direction ever modify, withdraw, alter, or
amplify the initial orders or direction you gave to Secretary
4. What were you told about Department of Defense assets in the
region that could respond specifically to Benghazi? Did you ask
for or receive a list of military or paramilitary assets in the region
that could respond to Benghazi during the pendency of the
5. Were you subsequently kept informed about the initial attack,
subsequent attacks, and/or efforts to either send military
assistance or evacuate U.S. personnel? By whom?
6. When did you learn Ambassador Christopher Stevens was
missing, and who informed you? Were you kept informed on
efforts to locate Ambassador Stevens, and if so, by whom? When
did you learn Ambassador Stevens was dead, and who informed
7. [Classified]
8. Were you aware that prior to any military asset moving to
respond to the attacks the State Department expressed concerns
to the White House about the number of military assets going
into Libya?
9. When did you learn of a mortar attack that killed Tyrone Woods
and Glen Doherty? Who informed you?
10. Were you aware of any efforts by White House and Department
of Defense officials during the evening of September 11, 2012,
and into the early morning hours of September 12, 2012, to reach
out to YouTube and Terry Jones regarding an anti-Muslim
video? What specifically connected the attacks in Benghazi to
this anti-Muslim [sic] video, and why weren’t these efforts made
after the protests in Cairo, Egypt?
11. When did you learn individuals associated with terrorist
organizations participated in the attack on the U.S. facilities in
Benghazi, Libya?
12. Did you receive the President’s Daily Brief (PDB) on September
12, 2012 and September 13, 2012? If so, who provided you with
the PDB
13. Have you ever viewed surveillance footage from the cameras (or
other sources) located at the U.S. facilities in Benghazi depicting
the attacks? Will you declassify this footage so the American
people can see for themselves what transpired?
14. Did you authorize a covert action or covert operation to provide
lethal assistance to Libyan rebels?

Trumps jobs speech; its a good one, folks.

It is great to be here. I'd like to thank Alumisource and all the amazing workers here for hosting us.
Today, I am going to talk about how to Make America Wealthy Again.
We are thirty miles from Steel City. Pittsburgh played a central role in building our nation.
The legacy of Pennsylvania steelworkers lives in the bridges, railways and skyscrapers that make up our great American landscape.
But our workers' loyalty was repaid with betrayal.
Our politicians have aggressively pursued a policy of globalization - moving our jobs, our wealth and our factories to Mexico and overseas.
Globalization has made the financial elite who donate to politicians very wealthy. But it has left millions of our workers with nothing but poverty and heartache.
When subsidized foreign steel is dumped into our markets, threatening our factories, the politicians do nothing.
For years, they watched on the sidelines as our jobs vanished and our communities were plunged into depression-level unemployment.
Many of these areas have still never recovered.
Our politicians took away from the people their means of making a living and supporting their families.
Skilled craftsmen and tradespeople and factory workers have seen the jobs they loved shipped thousands of miles away.
Many Pennsylvania towns once thriving and humming are now in a state despair.
This wave of globalization has wiped out our middle class.
It doesn't have to be this way. We can turn it all around - and we can turn it around fast.
But if we're going to deliver real change, we're going to have to reject the campaign of fear and intimidation being pushed by powerful corporations, media elites, and political dynasties.
The people who rigged the system for their benefit will do anything - and say anything - to keep things exactly as they are.
The people who rigged the system are supporting Hillary Clinton because they know as long as she is in charge nothing will ever change.
The inner cities will remain poor.
The factories will remain closed.
The borders will remain open.
The special interests will remain firmly in control.
Hillary Clinton and her friends in global finance want to scare America into thinking small - and they want to scare the American people out of voting for a better future.
My campaign has the opposite message.
I want you to imagine how much better your life can be if we start believing in America again.
I want you to imagine how much better our future can be if we declare independence from the elites who've led us to one financial and foreign policy disaster after another.
Our friends in Britain recently voted to take back control of their economy, politics and borders.
I was on the right side of that issue - with the people - while Hillary, as always, stood with the elites, and both she and president Obama predicted that one wrong.
Now it's time for the American people to take back their future.
That's the choice we face. We can either give in to Hillary Clinton's campaign of fear, or we can choose to Believe In America.
We lost our way when we stopped believing in our country.
America became the world's dominant economy by becoming the world's dominant producer.
The wealth this created was shared broadly, creating the biggest middle class the world had ever known.
But then America changed its policy from promoting development in America, to promoting development in other nations.
We allowed foreign countries to subsidize their goods, devalue their currencies, violate their agreements, and cheat in every way imaginable.
Trillions of our dollars and millions of our jobs flowed overseas as a result.
I have visited cities and towns across this country where a third or even half of manufacturing jobs have been wiped out in the last 20 years.
Today, we import nearly $800 billion more in goods than we export.
This is not some natural disaster. It is politician-made disaster.
It is the consequence of a leadership class that worships globalism over Americanism.
This is a direct affront to our Founding Fathers, who wanted America to be strong, independent and free.
Our Founding Fathers Understood Trade
George Washington said that "the promotion of domestic manufactur[ing] will be among the first consequences to flow from an energetic government.”
Alexander Hamilton spoke frequently of the "expediency of encouraging manufactur[ing] in the United States." The first Republican President, Abraham Lincoln, warned that: "The abandonment of the protective policy by the American government… must produce want and ruin among our people."
Our original Constitution did not even have an income tax. Instead, it had tariffs - emphasizing taxation of foreign, not domestic, production.
Yet today, 240 years after the Revolution, we have turned things completely upside-down.
We tax and regulate and restrict our companies to death, then we allow foreign countries that cheat to export their goods to us tax-free.
As a result, we have become more dependent on foreign countries than ever before.
Ladies and Gentlemen, it’s time to declare our economic independence once again.
That means reversing two of the worst legacies of the Clinton years.
America has lost nearly one-third of its manufacturing jobs since 1997 - even as the country has increased its population by 50 million people.
At the center of this catastrophe are two trade deals pushed by Bill and Hillary Clinton.
First, the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA. Second, China's entry into the World Trade Organization.
NAFTA was the worst trade deal in history, and China's entrance into the World Trade Organization has enabled the greatest jobs theft in history.
It was Bill Clinton who signed NAFTA in 1993, and Hillary Clinton who supported it.
It was also Bill Clinton who lobbied for China's disastrous entry into the World Trade Organization, and Hillary Clinton who backed that terrible agreement.
Then, as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton stood by idly while China cheated on its currency, added another trillion dollars to our trade deficits, and stole hundreds of billions of dollars in our intellectual property.
The city of Pittsburgh, and the State of Pennsylvania, have lost one-third of their manufacturing jobs since the Clintons put China into the WTO.
Fifty thousand factories across America have shut their doors in that time.
Almost half of our entire manufacturing trade deficit in goods with the world is the result of trade with China.
It was also Hillary Clinton, as Secretary of State, who shoved us into a job-killing deal with South Korea in 2012.
As reported by the Economic Policy Institute in May, this deal doubled our trade deficit with South Korea and destroyed nearly 100,000 American jobs.
As Bernie Sanders said, Hillary Clinton "Voted for virtually every trade agreement that has cost the workers of this country millions of jobs.”
Trade reform, and the negotiation of great trade deals, is the quickest way to bring our jobs back.
To understand why trade reform creates jobs, we need to understand how all nations grow and prosper.
Massive trade deficits subtract directly from our Gross Domestic Product.
From 1947 to 2001 - a span of over five decades - our inflation-adjusted gross domestic product grew at a rate of 3.5%.
However, since 2002 - the year after we fully opened our markets to Chinese imports - that GDP growth rate has been cut almost in half.
What does this mean for Americans? For every one percent of GDP growth we fail to generate in any given year, we also fail to create over one million jobs.
America's "job creation deficit" due to slower growth since 2002 is well over 20 million jobs - and that's just about the number of jobs our country needs right now to put America back to work at decent wages.
The Transpacific-Partnership is the greatest danger yet.
The TPP would be the death blow for American manufacturing.
It would give up all of our economic leverage to an international commission that would put the interests of foreign countries above our own.
It would further open our markets to aggressive currency cheaters. It would make it easier for our trading competitors to ship cheap subsidized goods into U.S. markets - while allowing foreign countries to continue putting barriers in front of our exports.
The TPP would lower tariffs on foreign cars, while leaving in place the foreign practices that keep American cars from being sold overseas. The TPP even created a backdoor for China to supply car parts for automobiles made in Mexico.
The agreement would also force American workers to compete directly against workers from Vietnam, one of the lowest wage countries on Earth.
Not only will the TPP undermine our economy, but it will undermine our independence.
The TPP creates a new international commission that makes decisions the American people can't veto.
These commissions are great Hillary Clinton’s Wall Street funders who can spend vast amounts of money to influence the outcomes.
It should be no surprise then that Hillary Clinton, according to Bloomberg, took a “leading part in drafting the Trans-Pacific Partnership”.
She praised or pushed the TPP on 45 separate occasions, and even called it the “gold standard”.
Hillary Clinton was totally for the TPP just a short while ago, but when she saw my stance, which is totally against, she was shamed into saying she would be against it too – but have no doubt, she will immediately approve it if it is put before her, guaranteed.
She will do this just as she has betrayed American workers for Wall Street throughout her career.
Here’s how it would go: she would make a small token change, declare the pact fixed, and ram it through.
That’s why Hillary is now only saying she has problems with the TPP “in its current form,” – ensuring that she can rush to embrace it again at her earliest opportunity.
If the media doesn’t believe me, I have a challenge for you. Ask Hillary Clinton if she is willing to withdraw from the TPP her first day in office and unconditionally rule out its passage in any form.
There is no way to “fix” the TPP. We need bilateral trade deals. We do not need to enter into another massive international agreement that ties us up and binds us down.
A Trump Administration will change our failed trade policy - quickly
Here are 7 steps I would pursue right away to bring back our jobs.
One: I am going to withdraw the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which has not yet been ratified.
Two: I'm going to appoint the toughest and smartest trade negotiators to fight on behalf of American workers.
Three: I'm going to direct the Secretary of Commerce to identify every violation of trade agreements a foreign country is currently using to harm our workers. I will then direct all appropriate agencies to use every tool under American and international law to end these abuses.
Four: I'm going tell our NAFTA partners that I intend to immediately renegotiate the terms of that agreement to get a better deal for our workers. And I don't mean just a little bit better, I mean a lot better. If they do not agree to a renegotiation, then I will submit notice under Article 2205 of the NAFTA agreement that America intends to withdraw from the deal.
Five: I am going to instruct my Treasury Secretary to label China a currency manipulator. Any country that devalues their currency in order to take advantage of the United States will be met with sharply
Six: I am going to instruct the U.S. Trade Representative to bring trade cases against China, both in this country and at the WTO. China's unfair subsidy behavior is prohibited by the terms of its entrance to the WTO, and I intend to enforce those rules.
Seven: If China does not stop its illegal activities, including its theft of American trade secrets, I will use every lawful presidential power to remedy trade disputes, including the application of tariffs consistent with Section 201 and 301 of the Trade Act of 1974 and Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962.
President Reagan deployed similar trade measures when motorcycle and semiconductor imports threatened U.S. industry. His tariff on Japanese motorcycles was 45% and his tariff to shield America’s semiconductor industry was 100%.
Hillary Clinton, and her campaign of fear, will try to spread the lie that these actions will start a trade war. She has it completely backwards.
Hillary Clinton unleashed a trade war against the American worker when she supported one terrible trade deal after another – from NAFTA to China to South Korea.
A Trump Administration will end that war by getting a fair deal for the American people.
The era of economic surrender will finally be over.
A new era of prosperity will finally begin.
America will be independent once more.
Under a Trump Presidency, the American worker will finally have a President who will protect them and fight for them.
We will stand up to trade cheating anywhere and everywhere it threatens an American job.
We will make America the best place in the world to start a business, hire workers, and open a factory.
This includes massive tax reform to lift the crushing burdens on American workers and businesses.
We will also get rid of wasteful rules and regulations which are destroying our job creation capacity.
Many people think that these regulations are an even greater impediment than the fact that we are one of the highest taxed nations in the world.
We are also going to fully capture America’s tremendous energy capacity. This will create vast profits for our workers and begin reducing our deficit. Hillary Clinton wants to shut down energy production and shut down the mines.
A Trump Administration will also ensure that we start using American steel for American infrastructure.
Just like the American steel from Pennsylvania that built the Empire State building.
It will be American steel that will fortify American's crumbling bridges.
It will be American steel that sends our skyscrapers soaring into the sky.
It will be American steel that rebuilds our inner cities.
It will be American hands that remake this country, and it will be American energy - mined from American resources - that powers this country.
It will be American workers who are hired to do the job.
We are going to put American-produced steel back into the backbone of our country. This alone will create massive numbers of jobs.
On trade, on immigration, on foreign policy, we are going to put America First again.
We are going to make America wealthy again.
We are going to reject Hillary Clinton's politics of fear, futility, and incompetence.
We are going to embrace the possibilities of change.
It is time to believe in the future.
It is time to believe in each other.
It is time to Believe In America.
This Is How We Are Going To Make America Great Again – For All Americans.
We Are Going To Make America Great Again For Everyone – Greater Than Ever Before.
Thank you.

What we learn from the 800 page House Report on Benghazi:

The following facts are among the many new revelations in Part II:
  • Five of the 10 action items from the 7:30 PM White House meeting referenced the video, but no direct link or solid evidence existed connecting the attacks in Benghazi and the video at the time the meeting took place. The State Department senior officials at the meeting had access to eyewitness accounts to the attack in real time. The Diplomatic Security Command Center was in direct contact with the Diplomatic Security Agents on the ground in Benghazi and sent out multiple updates about the situation, including a “Terrorism Event Notification.” The State Department Watch Center had also notified Jake Sullivan and Cheryl Mills that it had set up a direct telephone line to Tripoli. There was no mention of the video from the agents on the ground. Greg Hicks—one of the last people to talk to Chris Stevens before he died—said there was virtually no discussion about the video in Libya leading up to the attacks. [pg. 28]
  • The morning after the attacks, the National Security Council’s Deputy Spokesperson sent an email to nearly two dozen people from the White House, Defense Department, State Department, and intelligence community, stating: “Both the President and Secretary Clinton released statements this morning. … Please refer to those for any comments for the time being. To ensure we are all in sync on messaging for the rest of the day, Ben Rhodes will host a conference call for USG communicators on this chain at 9:15 ET today.” [pg. 39]
  • Minutes before the President delivered his speech in the Rose Garden, Jake Sullivan wrote in an email to Ben Rhodes and others: “There was not really much violence in Egypt. And we are not saying that the violence in Libya erupted ‘over inflammatory videos.’” [pg. 44]
  • According to Susan Rice, both Ben Rhodes and David Plouffe prepared her for her appearances on the Sunday morning talk shows following the attacks. Nobody from the FBI, Department of Defense, or CIA participated in her prep call. While Rhodes testified Plouffe would “normally” appear on the Sunday show prep calls, Rice testified she did not recall Plouffe being on prior calls and did not understand why he was on the call in this instance. [pg.98]
  • On the Sunday shows, Susan Rice stated the FBI had “already begun looking at all sorts of evidence” and “FBI has a lead in this investigation.” But on Monday, the Deputy Director, Office of Maghreb Affairs sent an email stating: “McDonough apparently told the SVTS [Secure Video Teleconference] group today that everyone was required to ‘shut their pieholes’ about the Benghazi attack in light of the FBI investigation, due to start tomorrow.” [pg. 135]
  • After Susan Rice’s Sunday show appearances, Jake Sullivan assured the Secretary of the State that Rice “wasn’t asked about whether we had any intel. But she did make clear our view that this started spontaneously and then evolved.” [pg. 128]
  • Susan Rice’s comments on the Sunday talk shows were met with shock and disbelief by State Department employees in Washington. The Senior Libya Desk Officer, Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs, State Department, wrote: “I think Rice was off the reservation on this one.” The Deputy Director, Office of Press and Public Diplomacy, Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs, State Department, responded: “Off the reservation on five networks!” The Senior Advisor for Strategic Communications, Bureau of Near East Affairs, State Department, wrote: “WH [White House] very worried about the politics. This was all their doing.” [pg. 132]
  • The CIA’s September 13, 2012, intelligence assessment was rife with errors. On the first page, there is a single mention of “the early stages of the protest” buried in one of the bullet points. The article cited to support the mention of a protest in this instance was actually from September 4. In other words, the analysts used an article from a full week before the attacks to support the premise that a protest had occurred just prior to the attack on September 11. [pg. 47]
  • A headline on the following page of the CIA’s September 13 intelligence assessment stated “Extremists Capitalized on Benghazi Protests,” but nothing in the actual text box supports that title. As it turns out, the title of the text box was supposed to be “Extremists Capitalized on Cairo Protests.” That small but vital difference—from Cairo to Benghazi—had major implications in how people in the administration were able to message the attacks. [pg. 52]

Notes about the Wa/Post - NBC poll with Hillary up 12 points on Trump:

Should Trump be worried about the WaPost/NBC poll that has him losing to Hillary 51 to 39 percent?  


Here is why:  for starters,  the poll interviewed 12% more Democrats than Republicans,  and (2) it claims that she is polling "even" with men    . . . . .    when,  in fact, she is down 16% to 25% with men.  

Lessons learned?  These early partisan polls are for the purpose of raising money.  Three/four weeks before the election,  the serious polls will rise to the top of the food chain.  

Brexit: "The bleeding has stopped, at least for the moment" so stop with the "Sky is falling, the sky is falling."

Early morning Market reports after Brexit:

German Market up 218 points.
United Kingdom up 160 points.
Italy up 512 points.
India up 122 points.

US Markets up 183 points. 

Gold is down 12 points from its three day high; oil is up . . . . both indicating

Morning trading (before the Market opens):   Gold is down 12 points from its three day high;  oil is up $1.21   . . . .   both indicating a return to normalcy and a move away from Left Wing fear tactics.  

All of this is good news and evidence that Brexit has little to do without our economy.  

Pat Summit dies at 64. Salute to one of the greatest coaches in sports history.

She began coaching at age 22 (U. of Tennessee) making $8,900,  two years after Title IX and several years before woman's basketball became a NCAA sanctioned sport.  In her career as head coach,  she was 112 -23,  with 18 Final Four appearances and 8 National Championships.  She never had a losing season,  and since 1982,  every girl coming into her program made it to the Final Four at least once. 

American futures are up 202 points at 6:30 am e.t. The panic is over proving . . . . .

American futures are up 202 points at 6:30 am e.t.  The panic is over proving that all this doom and gloom coming from the crisis specialists on the Marxist Left is nothing but scare tactics used in an effort to real back the move away from so-called "globalism." 

As far as this editor can tell,  "globalism" may effect commercial trade,  but,  at a loss to personal liberties  . . . . .   and that last consideration is without debate.  

Keep in mind that if the European Union went up in smoke,  the effect of trade can be easily quantified:  it simply means that future trade agreement will be on a one-to-one basis   . . . . .   something we used to do back in the good old days   . . . . . .   something that continues to have value and use in these present times.  There is absolutely no reason to believe that this is a step "backwards" except to believe that Brexit was a step back from the edge of the abyss.  

In the end, and not too far into the future,  we will see that the the sky is not falling.  

Now,  I hasten to add that many analysts believe a recession is on the horizon for the end of this year or in 2017,  a recession that has little to do with Brexit.  Anyone want to bet that the know-nothing economists on the Left will use Brexit as cover for their long term failing economic schemes.  

Look at their domestic record:  A real GDP seven year average of 1.2% marking this time as the slowest "recovery" in American history.  One simply cannot ignore the fact that this pathetic GDP average is due to 20 consecutive months of declining consumer goods orders,  four quarters of declining earnings (dividends) and five quarters of declining revenues.  The result of this fact  (the GDP average) is a doubling of the food stamps population since 2009, 10 million Americans gone from the workforce - a 40 year record low, a 30% increase in the poverty rate,  and more small businesses failings than successes for the first time in American history.  

For the Left to argue for a strong economy is nothing short of a lie   . . . . .   time for a change,  time to stop with invented crisis and globalism that promises nothing to the individual citizen that is not possible without this One World nonsense.  

Thousands of Americans have been placed on ISIS hit lists. So, why does Barack say, "ISIS is not an existential threat to America." Does he even know the meaning of "existential?"

Islamic State has begun distributing increasingly long “kill lists” of ordinary Americans purportedly encouraging its followers to target those individuals, vexing authorities who are at odds over whether the lists pose an actual threat or are merely scare tactics.

A list distributed late last month contained the names of more than 2,000 New Yorkers, while another listed about 1,500 Texans. None of the people had known connections to government or to issues that the terror group cares about, according to counterterrorism officials.
That development is sparking a debate among counterterrorism officials about whether the government should keep notifying all the individuals identified. While ISIS has distributed kill lists for more than a year—typically over Twitter and other social-media platforms—officials say such lists are increasing greatly in size and have moved from targeting dozens of military or government officials at a time to thousands of ordinary citizens.

No one should be allowed to speak at the RNC next month, who refuses to endorse, or, at least, vote for Donald Trump.

Look,  I am not a Trump fan.  My choices included Marco Rubio and Carly Fiorino, but this comment is undeniably true:  

Cruz and Kasich are still campaigning for themselves, and bribing delegates. They would hinder the process to pick the one that beat them all out fairly. Sore losers. They should have no part in the convention since they went back on their signed agreement to back the candidate that won.

Listen to this 13 minute confrontation between Hillary and Trey Gowdy and you will wonder why she brags about standing up against the GOP for 11 hours.

In short,  she got her butt kicked in this segment  . . . .    period. 

Update:  BTW,  she has made it appear that she took questions for 11 straight hours and defeated the GOP in that effort.  The reader should count how many times she claims to be in the dark,  when asked question after question   . . .    far more "I don't know,  I don't remember" than "here is your answer."  And we are talking about 13 minutes,  not 11 hours.  

18.7 Million Immigrants Exempt From Oath of Allegiance...

'Nough said.

The UK rejected Barack and the President of France refused to stop using the term "radical Islamic terror," so Barack ran to Merkel for validation.

Hollande, President of France,  refused to stop using the term "radical Islamic terror,"  so Obama politely turned his back on the man, but,  before Hollande,  Barack returned the bust of Churchill in an obvious slap in the fact to Britian.  When Hollande decided to act as if he owed nothing to Barack Obama, Obama returned to England and David Cameron.  Now that Britain has rejected Obama's pleas for continued globalism and a One World government,  there is nowhere to go but into the arms of Chancellery Merkel for validation as a leader on the world's stage.  So much for leading from behind   . . . .   a rather infantile concept from its beginning. 

And his 61 member Mid-East Alliance,  designed to destroy ISIS, was only a figment of his feckless imagination.   That's why ISIS has spread to more than 100 countries,  has a fighting force of 25,000 in Norther Iraq and Syria,  5,000 in Somalia and 8,000 in Libya  and has spread terror to Europe and the United States of America. 

After two terrible weeks, Trumps "fall from grace" has been slightly exaggerated.

After two terrible weeks,  Trumps "fall from grace" has been slightly exaggerated in the battle ground states.  Oh,  he is running behind,  but it certainly is not hopeless   . . . . . .    and his campaign has not yet begun. 

This is why Midknight Review pays no attention to national polls:



George Will proves his ability for logic and reasoned debate to be an illusion of monumental proportions . . . . . in other words, a sham.

WASHINGTON – Conservative columnist George Will told PJM he has officially left the Republican Party and urged conservatives not to support presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump even if it leads to a Democratic victory in the 2016 presidential election.
Will, who writes for the Washington Post, acknowledged it is a “little too late” for the Republican Party to find a replacement for Trump but had a message for Republican voters.
“Make sure he loses. Grit their teeth for four years and win the White House,” Will said during an interview after his speech at a Federalist Society luncheon.
Will said he changed his voter registration this month from Republican to “unaffiliated” in the state of Maryland.
“This is not my party,” Will said during his speech at the event.
Source:  PJMedia, here.  

Editor's notes:   Not named in the above,  Will mentions a number of disappointing "conservative " GOP nominees to the Bench.  Will's reasoning as to Supreme Court justices and the GOP's past performances aside, the fact remains that all of those he names were reasonably conservative prior to their appointment to the High Court.   Hillary has already made it clear that here appointments will far more liberal than anything the GOP has ever considered. My disappointment with "conservatism" is found in the fact that many of my conservative heros have proven to be major disappointments. Mark Levin went running to Trump before Trump went after the Slick Mr. Cruz. Ditto Sarah Palin. Hannity has always been a moron when it comes to party loyalties, kissing the behinds of Schwarzenegger, Michael Bloomberg, and now, Trump. The list of "defectors" is rather profound, including the Evangelical Movement and, now,  Gorge Will, a man I deeply respected until yesterday. At the same time, I understand what Hillary will do to this nation, if elected. Obviously, George Will and Mitt Romney (who I enthusiastically supported), simply do not give a damn. Positioning yourself for the next battle, as Will and Romney claim they are doing, is rather pointless after you have surrounded to the enemy.

I am an "independent." George Will is a defector. Big difference.

New citizens, under Hussein Obama, no longer have to pledge to defend the United States of America. Anyone still believe this man is an "American" president?

Obama Invites 18.7 Million Immigrants to Avoid Oath of Allegiance, Pledge to Defend America 

It’s not only illegal aliens who are escaping enforcement of the nation’s immigration laws.

Under the Obama administration’s expansive interpretation of executive authority,  legal immigrants seeking citizenship through the nation’s Naturalization process are now exempt from a key part of the Oath of Allegiance.
Immigrants seeking to become citizens no longer have to pledge to “bear arms on behalf of the United States.” They can opt out of that part of the Oath. Nor do they have to cite any specific religious belief that forbids them to perform military service.  
According to the Naturalization Fact Sheet on the US Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) website, In the fiscal year ending June 30, 2015, the nation welcomed 729,995 Legal Permanent Residents into full citizenship.
  • Over the past decade 6.6 million have been naturalized through a process that ends with the Oath of Allegiance.
  • In the decade 1980-1990, the average number completing Naturalization was only 220,000 annually, but from 1990 to 2000 that number jumped to over 500,000  annually.
  • 1,050,399  new citizens were welcomed in the year 2008.
  • 18.7 million immigrants are eligible to eventually become citizens, and 8.8 million already meet the 5-year residency requirement.
The pledge to help defend America was good enough for the 6.6 million immigrants naturalized since 2005 and good enough for the over 15 million naturalized since 1980, but Obama’s appointees at the USCIS think that is too much to ask of the 18.7 million estimated legal immigrants eligible today for eventual naturalization or the 750,000 who will be naturalized in the coming year.

This radical change was announced a year ago, in July of 2015. Congress did not enact the change in new legislation. There was no congressional debate, no filibuster in the US Senate, and no sit-in in the House to demand that a bill to repeal the USCIS action be brought to a vote.

No, this radical change was implemented while Congress slept.

I am an Independent. George Will is an antagonist with no political soul except his own damn "principles."

Patrick Howley / Breitbart:
George Will Leaves GOP, Tells Republicans to Make Sure Donald Trump Loses 

Editor's notes:  I am an Independent.  George Will is an antagonist with no political soul except his own damn "principles."  He could not care less if Hillary transforms this nation via her High Court appointments.  He does not care if Hillary takes us into a One World governance.  He only cares about "conservative purity,"  to hell with winning. 
And what good are your principles when you are a loser? 

I do not care if he goes "independent,"  but when he leaves behind instruction to sabotage the Trump campaign,  he is not an "independent."  And if you can't figure out the difference,  you really need to sit this out or quit the Democrat Party.  

Some do not mind Hillary's ties to Wall Street; They just hate that she pretends other wise.

McClatchy News:   Television cameras rolled when Hillary Clinton appeared on the central balcony of the New York Stock Exchange to ring the opening bell — just minutes after she attended a private breakfast in September 2009 with influential Wall Street and business leaders.
But the identities of her breakfast guests would be left off of her official State Department calendar — omissions that are among scores of names and events missing from Clinton’s historical record of her daily activities as secretary of state, an Associated Press review found.

Now the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, Clinton met that morning with a dozen chief executives, most of whose firms had lobbied the government and donated to her family’s global charity, the Clinton Foundation. The event was closed to the press and merited only a brief mention in her official calendar, which omitted the names of all her guests — among them Blackstone Group Chairman Steven Schwarzman, PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi and then-New York Bank of Mellon CEO Robert Kelly.

A Conservative pens thoughts about how he would deal with a gay child. Maybe we should all think about this.

If I had a child who “went gay,”  what would I do?

  1. I would re-examine my biblical view on that subject and encourage my gay child to do the same. 
  2. I would ask my child to respect my views, and not push his/her issue when hanging out with her dad.  Look,  if my daughter, Julie and her main squeeze, Mark,  came over to the house and staged major “make-out” cessions,  I would tell them to knock it off   . . .    so its not an anti-gay bias,  in and of itself. 
  3. I would recognize that “gay” is more than an intellectual decision.  That does not make it right or “acceptable,” but it does make it “complicated.”  
  4. I would never be a part of a gay’s primary complaint, i.e. “My parents hate me.”
  5. I would never argue for the acceptance of a lifestyle I believed to be wrong, while,  at the same time,  teaching 24/7 that God’s grace gives us all the time in this world to get things right in our lives.
  6. I would insist that my child continue to be one of my best friends.
  7. I would work to create a “church” climate that would allow my son or daughter to attend services and feel he/she had a place to worship.
  8. I would admit that the second I push my child away because of “gayness”  (or any other single issue),  I have taken myself out of his/her life,  in terms of influence and advice in all other areas of life. 
Have you ever heard a kid argue that “God wants me to be a drug addict,”  or, “God wants me to argue with and beat my wife,”  “God wants me to be lazy,”  ????   Just saying,  as a parent,  you may be the only one left in this world to talk to your kid about these other things,  things they KNOW are wrong.  Can’t do it if you have ordered them out of the house.

  1. I would give some thought as to why I might treat others differently than how I would hope treat my own kids.  By the way,  this works in reverse.  Kids need to stop being “hurt” because their parents don’t agree with them. 

Hundreds of millions of taxpayer money has been spent on fraudulent "scienctific climate reseach." Its been going on since 1994.

Nearly two decades and $108 million worth of “disturbing” data manipulation with “serious and far ranging” effects forced a federal lab to close, a congressman revealed Thursday.
The inorganic section of the U.S. Geological Survey’s (USGS) Energy Geochemistry Laboratory in Lakewood, Colo. manipulated data on a variety of topics – including many related to the environment – from 1996 to 2014. The manipulation was caught in 2008, but continued another six years.

Editor: BTW,  this first paragraph is highly misleading.  It implies the 108 million dollars were spent since 1996,  when,  in fact,  it was spent since 2008.  

“It’s astounding that we spend $108 million on manipulated research and then the far-reaching effects that that would have,” Rep. Bruce Westerman said at a House Natural Resources subcommittee hearing. “We know how research multiples and affects different parts of our society and our economy and … if you’re working off of flawed data it definitely could be in a bad way.”

 Westerman cited a recent Department of the Interior Inspector General (IG) report that said impacts from the data manipulation “are not yet known but, nevertheless, they will be serious and far ranging. The affected projects represented about $108 million in taxpayer funding from fiscal year 2008 through 2014.”

Kennedy versus the Globalist regime of Barack Obama . . . . you all must be proud.

How the Left in Congress looks at the Brexit vote (hint: they are all One World Globalist and anti-sovereignty activists, now).

 Just to be clear,  the rest of the world  (there are 200 nations outside the E.U.) that have not surrendered their borders, entered into partnerships that demand they surrender their sovereignty, nor encourage their constituents to abandon their own national culture in favor of incoming cultures from other parts of the world.

That story about the Orlando Muslim killer being gay is false per the FBI.

The gay revenge narrative of Omar Mateen’s terrorist attack in Orlando has effectively obscured his several explicit pledges to ISIS laced throughout the rampage in several calls to 911.
The only trouble is the narrative is likely a complete fiction, according to the FBI’s official investigation.

Following the slaughter of 49 innocent people at a gay nightclub in Orlando, news broke that Omar Mateen allegedly had multiple gay lovers, used gay dating apps, and frequented the same club he shot up. Clearly the news trumped Mateen’s sworn allegiances to ISIS, because the wider media opted instead to cast Mateen as a conflicted, complicated and highly nuanced psychopath.

Perhaps inconveniently, the LA Times ran a story Thursday that revealed the FBI could find “no evidence” or reliable witness testimony to support that Mateen was gay or had gay lovers. In fact, his only affairs appear to have been with women.

Bernie supports Hillary but continues to be a pain in her backside . . . . and 22% of his supporters will vote for Donald.

A Bloomberg article published Wednesday warns that “nearly half of Sanders supporters won’t support Clinton.” It cites a June 14 Bloomberg poll of likely general-election voters, reporting that “barely half of those who favored Sanders—55 percent—plan to vote for Clinton.” The story adds, “22 percent say they’ll vote for Trump, while 18 percent favor Libertarian Gary Johnson.” The report indicates widespread resistance to a Clinton presidency among Sanders supporters, a dynamic that could help the senator as he negotiates the terms of his surrender.

How does Europe see the Brexit vote? In addition to "Exit," they see Brexit as a rejection of Obama's trade threats and feel good radical socialism. See the headline from the UK's Daily Mail:

Progressive/Socialists strategy to oppose change? Preach fear and "disaster." They tried it in the Unitied Kingdom. Didn't work. And they are trying it with Trump.

Progressive/Socialists strategy to oppose change?  Preach fear and "disaster." They tried it in the United Kingdom. Didn't work.  And they are trying it with Trump.

Understand that "Trump" for most Americans,  is not about Trump,  but about a pronounced nationalism that closes our borders,  preaches the exceptional nature of our brand of freedom for all,  and shares in a growing sense of globalism as a sovereign nation.  

We should not believe the Socialist crap coming out of our
White House; rhetoric that argues for a borderless world and a government centered in the U.N. or Brussels,  as the only way of going forward.  

Make note of this developing outcome:  our Market began the day at minus 500.  Within an hour,  this morning, the Dow is down [just] 330 points and trending back to normal .  

In the face of this mornings developments,  Hillary,  with her second pronouncement,  cautions against what is happening in Europe as she preaches more fear (loss of jobs,  a coming recession, and the end of the economic world).  This is what Marxist Liberals always do.  If they can capitalize on a crisis,  they invent one and go from there.  

Hillary's morning response to Brexit:  "Our first task has to be to make sure that the economic uncertainty created by these events does not hurt working families"  . . . . .    

as if "working families" have benefited from the European brand of socialism she and Barack and Elizabeth Warren and John Kerry and Chuckie Schumer and the others,  push forward.    A 1.3% GDP average for eight years does not allow these libs to preach "job growth."  A growing population trapped in poverty during the past eight years and beyond,  defeats the Socialist arguments for their nonsense.  Don't forget the doubling of our food stamps population under Obama.  Finally, remember that 10 million Americans have walked away from the workforce since Obama and Hillary took over - a clear rejection of European Socialism in this country.   Why?  Because there is no job growth at 1.3% GDP; because poverty does not increase within a working society;  because food stamp populations are not needed when folks return to the workforce; because a 10 million increase in joblessness (i.e. the workforce participation rate) is an undeniable argument against all that Obama/Hillary was trying to do.     

Don't get me wrong.  There will be some pain as a result of the Brexit vote.  But its not going to be the end of the world that some on the far and radicalized Left are predicting.
