Election aftermath . . .

Well, US Election 2016 is over.

As you probably remember, my wife is a librarian who works in a university library.  The vast majority of university faculty in the US are, it would seem, liberals.  So, when my wife got up to prepare for work this morning, I pulled her leg just a bit.

Specifically, I asked her if the library has any procedures in place to deal with any of her co-workers spontaneously combusting.  She wanted to know what I meant, and choosing my words very carefully, I said, “President-Elect Trump is going to have a much better day today than most of your colleagues.”

It took a few seconds for that to sink in – but in her defense she had just awakened.

I hope you have a great day today, whatever outcome you hoped for yesterday.

Hillary or Donald . . .

Ok, I’ve tried very hard to stay out of politics this year, but the whole scene is getting so ridiculous that someone has to wade into the sewage and try to make sense out of it.

I’m going to try to boil this down to the most fundamental aspects of the two major choices facing US voters next month.

On the one hand we have Hillary Clinton, a professional lawyer by training.

On the other hand we have Donald Trump, a professional salesman by training.

And right there, in two sentences, I’ve summed up the real difference between the candidates.  As a professional salesman, Trump has made a career out of acknowledging that everyone he faces has a choice, and that his job was to do everything in his power to get them to make the choice he preferred, knowing that he wouldn’t ever have a 100% close rate.  As a professional defense lawyer, Hillary learned to lie, manipulate facts and (though she was fired for doing so at the Watergate hearings) manufacture false evidence to get the outcome she preferred.

Which person would you rather have running the country – one who believes you have a choice, or one who believes that her viewpoint is the only valid one?  The clock is ticking.

vote for trumpI still say that the one thing the United States of America needs to change, from a legal standpoint, is the exemption politicians enjoy from being sued for libel or slander, or even having to worry about getting the facts straight.  This one change, by itself, would completely change the face of American politics.

Trump can’t shake the racist accusation — NoneOfTheAbove — Arlin Report

By Patrick Colliano In a tweet dated May 16, 2016, Paul Joseph Watson of InfoWars shared this meme on Twitter. I wouldn’t describe Paul Joseph Watson as a ‘shoot first; ask questions later’ type. He is more of a ‘shoot first; don’t ask questions at all’ type. Even a simple Google search would have exposed […] […]

Donald and Hillary are in a bar . . . (joke)

My friend Anita sent this to me, and my jaw dropped at the reminder of just how many scandals Hillary has weathered.  Any one of them would have been enough to end someone else’s career, but she has such a huge umbrella of protection that she’s survived them all – so far, at least.  Anyhow, here is the joke:

Trump: “THAT’S IT! I almost forgot about that one”.

When Does Hillary Realize She’s In Trouble?

I don’t particularly care for Fiorina, but that would be a funny turn of events for H.

Desert Musings

Hillary Clinton has to be either one of the greatest actresses in American history, or one of the blindest when it comes to viewing her potential demise in the Democrat party. It’s amazing that this woman can go out day after day, in the glaring spotlight of media attention, with scandal surrounding her on all sides, and poll numbers dropping faster than Jerrod losing weight on Subway sandwiches, and not seem to notice she’s a failure at this too.

Do me a favor, and go to the following link:

It was taken on Thursday night during Hillary’s three-day, emergency stop in New Hampshire where she continues to trail Bernie Sanders by 10 points. It’s a shot of her rally at the University of New Hampshire, in what looks…

Thinking about candidates . . .

Since I’ve only refused to support any announced candidate only once in over 30 years of voting, I really don’t want to sit out another election.  Not yet, anyhow.  So, I’m looking around to see who’s running, and what they represent.  Keeping that in mind, a friend sent me an email about Donald Trump’s candidacy.  I’m putting the text below, with the caveat that I’m not endorsing or supporting him (or anyone else) at this time.  Scott Walker is also of interest, but we have a ways to go yet.

Interesting Perspective about Donald Trump’s running for president!  Nothing more to say just read it! Then! Think for your self!  
 
     This is not an endorsement of the Donald.    Explains one view as to why he is shaking things up. 
  
 
Here’s why Obama and Hillary must stop Donald Trump at all costs.
Hi. I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. Some people are getting very nervous: Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett, Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton and Jon Corzine, to name just a few. And I know why. 
I wrote a book titled “The Murder of the Middle Class” about the unholy conspiracy between big government, big business and big media. They all benefit by the billions of dollars from this partnership, and it’s in all of their interests to protect one another. It’s one for all and all for one. 
It’s a heck of a filthy relationship that makes everyone filthy rich — everyone except the American people. We get ripped off. We’re the patsies. 
But for once, the powerful socialist cabal and the corrupt crony capitalists are scared. I’ve never seen them this outraged, this vicious, this motivated or this coordinated. Never in all my years in politics have I seen anything like the way the mad dogs of hell have been unleashed on Donald Trump. 
When white supremacist David Dukes ran for governor of Louisiana, even he wasn’t treated with this kind of outrage, vitriol and disrespect. When a known fraud, scam artist and tax cheat like Al Sharpton ran for president, I never saw anything remotely close to this. The over-the-top reaction to Trump by politicians of both parties, the media and the biggest corporations of America has been so swift and insanely angry that it suggests they are all threatened and frightened like never before. 
Why? Duke was never going to win. Sharpton was never going to win. Ron Paul was never going to win. Ross Perot was never going to win as a third-party candidate. Those candidates either didn’t have or couldn’t spare the billion dollars it takes to win the presidency. But Donald Trump can self-fund that amount tomorrow and still have another billion left over to pour into the last two-week stretch run before Election Day. 
No matter how much they say to the contrary, the media, business and political elite understand that Trump is no joke. He could actually win and upset their nice cozy apple cart. 
It’s no coincidence that everyone has gotten together to destroy The Donald. No, this is a coordinated conspiracy led by President Barack Obama himself. Obama himself is making the phone calls and giving the orders; he’s the ultimate intimidator who plays by the rules of Chicago thug politics. 
Why is this so important to Obama? It’s because most of the other politicians are part of the “old boys club.” They talk big, but in the end they won’t change a thing. Why? They are all beholden to big-money donors. They are all owned by lobbyists, unions, lawyers, gigantic environmental organizations and multinational corporations like Big Pharma or Big Oil. Or they are owned lock, stock and barrel by foreigners like George Soros owns Obama or foreign governments own Hillary with their Clinton Foundation donations. 
These run-of-the-mill establishment politicians are all puppets owned by big money. But there’s one man — and only one man — who isn’t beholden to anyone. There’s one man who doesn’t need foreigners, or foreign governments, or George Soros, or the United Auto Workers, or the teachers union, or the Service Employees International Union, or the bar association to fund his campaign. 
Billionaire tycoon and maverick Donald Trump doesn’t need anyone’s help. 
That means he doesn’t care what the media says. He doesn’t care what the corporate elites think. That makes him very dangerous to the entrenched interests. That makes Trump a huge threat. Trump can ruin everything for the bribed politicians and their spoiled slave masters. 
Don’t you ever wonder why the GOP has never tried to impeach Obama? Don’t you wonder why John Boehner and Mitch McConnell talk a big game, but never actually try to stop Obama? Don’t you wonder why Congress holds the purse strings, yet has never tried to defund Obamacare or Obama’s clearly illegal executive action on amnesty for illegal aliens? Bizarre, right? It defies logic, right? 
Well, first, I’d guess many key Republicans are being bribed. Secondly, I believe many key Republicans are being blackmailed. Whether they are having affairs, or secretly gay, or stealing taxpayer money, the National Security Agency knows everything. 
Ask former House Speaker Dennis Hastert about that. The government even knew he was withdrawing large sums of his own money from his own bank account. Trust me: The NSA, the SEC, the IRS and all the other three-letter government agencies are watching every Republican political leader. They know everything. 
Thirdly, many Republicans are petrified of being called “racists.” So they are scared to ever criticize Obama or call out his crimes, let alone demand his impeachment. 
Fourth, why rock the boat? After defeat or retirement, if you’re a “good boy,” you’ve got a $5 million-per-year lobbying job waiting. 
The big-money interests have the system gamed. Win or lose, they win. 
But Trump doesn’t play by any of these rules. Trump breaks up this nice, cozy relationship between big government, big media and big business. All the rules are out the window if Trump wins the presidency. The other politicians will protect Obama and his aides — but not Trump. 
Remember: Trump is the guy who publicly questioned Obama’s birth certificate. He questioned Obama’s college records and how a mediocre student got into an Ivy League university. 
Now, he’s doing something no Republican has the chutzpah to do. He’s questioning our relationship with Mexico; questioning why the border is wide open; questioning why no wall has been built across the border; questioning if allowing millions of illegal aliens into America is in our best interests; questioning why so many illegal aliens commit violent crimes yet are not deported; and questioning why our trade dealswith Mexico, Russia and China are so bad. 
Trump has the audacity to ask out loud why American workers always get the short end of the stick. Good question. 
I’m certain Trump will question what happened to the almost billion dollars given in a rigged no-bid contract to college friends of Michelle Obama at foreign companies to build the defective Obamacare website. 
By the way, that tab is now up to $5 billion. 
Trump will ask if Obamacare’s architects can be charged with fraud for selling it by lying. He will ask if Obama himself committed fraud when he said, “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it.” 
Trump will investigate Obama’s widespread IRS conspiracy, not to mention Obama’s college records. 
Trump will prosecute Clinton and Obama for fraud committed to cover up Benghazi before the election. 
How about the fraud committed by employees of the Labor Department when they made up dramatic job numbers in the last jobs report before the 2012 election? 
Obama, the multinational corporations and the media need to stop this. They recognize this could get out of control. If left unchecked telling the raw truth and asking questions everyone else is afraid to ask, Trump could wake a sleeping giant. 
Trump’s election would be a nightmare. Obama has committed many crimes. No one else but Trump would dare to prosecute. He will not hesitate. Once Trump gets in and gets a look at “the cooked books” and Obama’s records, the game is over. The gig is up. The goose is cooked. 
Holder could wind up in prison. Jarrett could wind up in prison. Obama bundler Corzine could wind up in prison for losing $1.5 billion of customer money. 
Clinton could wind up in jail for deleting 32,000 emails, or for accepting bribes from foreign governments while secretary of state, or for “misplacing” $6 billion as the head of the State Department, or for lying about Benghazi. 
The entire upper level management of the IRS could wind up in prison. Obamacare will be defunded and dismantled. The Obama crime family will be prosecuted for crimes against the American people. And Obama himself could wind up ruined, his legacy in tatters. 
Trump will investigate. Trump will prosecute. Trump will go after everyone involved — just for fun. That will all happen on Trump’s first day in the White House. 
Who knows what Trump will do on Day 2? 
That’s why the dogs of hell have been unleashed on Donald Trump. I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. See you next week. God bless America.
