?We’ve been watching the coverage of the revelations coming out about the fix being in amongst the Democrats for Hillary Clinton. Wow that kind of occurrence is not a surprise amongst the Democrats, on what basis does anybody believe that the fix was not in for Donald Trump, particularly given what went on on the floor of the convention?
I would suggest that the only difference between them at this point is the GOP does a little bit better job at hacker proofing their servers.

Little Finger, b/k/a Donald Trump has just poked is little finger in the eye of Big Thigh’s, b/k/a Mrs. William Clinton,  paid political operative, a/k/a the main stream media, from Mollie Hemmingway, Federalist:

In his press conference, during which he spoke at length with the media, he said, “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing. I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.”

Immediately the press responded with outrage, saying he had “called on Russia to hack into Hillary Clinton’s email, in an unprecedented request for a rival power to influence a presidential election though cyber attacks.”

It must be hell to have to listen to an entire speech by Little Donny. Little Finger does not speak with the precision of a lawyer. Rather he speaks like what he is, a circus barker.

For one, Mrs. Clinton emails can not be hacked. They are off-line and in possession of the FBI. Moreover, it not a matter of will the Russians, or the Chicoms or the Norks hack Mrs. Clinton’s email. They already have. The question is when, and to whom, will the Russians reveal the contents of Mrs Clinton’s thirty thousand emails.

To the Clinton campaign, if the emails were indeed truly private with such boring stuff as funeral arrangements and yoga routines, the Russians would have deleted their copies after they read them. Nobody would be afraid of revealing yoga routine email. So what bullets are Mrs. Clinton sweating.

?So, Debbie Wasserman Schultz had to resign because of dirty tricks played against Bernie Sanders.
That kind of nonsense is par for the course in the Democrat Party these days anyway. 
But….Perhaps we ought to ask the question at what point are we going to see resignations at the RNC for the dirty tricks played against Ted Cruz.
And think about it. The reason that you’re not seeing the press all worried about that like they are with the Democrats is the Ted Cruz doesn’t tilt left like they do

Clinton_Hillary(old)Big Thigh, b/k/a Mrs. William Clinton, from ABC News:

Hillary Clinton said Republicans have created a “Hillary standard” that has contributed to the negative impression many people have of her, giving her first joint interview with her newly announced running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine.

“I often feel like there’s the Hillary standard and then there’s the standard for everybody else,” the presumptive Democratic nominee said in the interview on CBS News’ “60 Minutes.”

Clinton explained that there has been a “concerted effort” by Republicans to portray her in a negative light, and described the double standard she believes is set for her as “unfounded, inaccurate, mean-spirited attacks with no basis in truth, reality, which take on a life of their own.”

Mrs. Clinton was not indited for her chronic mishandling of classified information because in the words of FBI Director James Comey, she was too stupid to under her legal obligations.

The Clinton Criminal Clan had Debbie Wasserman Schultz running the DNC as integral arm of Clinton campaign, from Red State:

If there were over 19,000 leaked emails from the RNC, including questionable interactions with the press, possible collusion, cover-ups, fake protesters, fake craigslist ads, temper tantrums from top officials, and a literal attempt to undermine a primary candidate over and over in favor of the chosen one, the coverage on the cable news networks would be wall to wall. I wouldn’t even be surprised if the news came by way of breaking into prime time on a broadcast network. But these are Democrats so it’s being soft-shoed.

So Wasserman Schultz get throw out of DNC into the waiting arms Clinton Criminal Clan campaign, more from Red State:

Hillary to Schultz: You’re Fired. You’re Hired. Within about no time at all, Debbie Wasserman Schultz went from embarassed, to losing a speaking slot, to “resigning”, to … brand new top Clinton campaign official. Sorry again, Bernie fans. But she’s not sorry.

So Senator Sanders, can you feel the Bern?

Mike Pence would be wise indeed to consider the plight of Sarah Palin.
Regardless what is thought of her now, at the time she was far more presidential. And certainly for more conservative. And correctly so in my way of thinking, because John McCain should never have been considered for the position. As he has proven many times since, he is no conservative.

Pence  more conservative then Donell Trump, but then again who isn’t? Certainly, Pence was brought on board to ththroa sop at the wing of the party that Donald Trump has almost exclusively been centered on alienating.
Add to that  idea that Mike Pence has just signed on for at least a year and possibly five years of apologizing for the utterances of Donald Trump. I don’t know if that’s a job I’d wish on anybody.
And finally consider the idea that when the buyer’s remorse over Donald Trump gets to full volume which win or lose it will do, Mike Pence will have at that point ended any political aspirations whatsoever.
Personally, if I were in his position I’d be backing out right now.

As you try to analyze what’s going on in this election season, try to remember that those with actual principles are not slaves to the tyranny of the immediate.

Eric Florack on July 20th, 2016

?There’s an old joke that still gets circulated once in awhile. It theorises that since cats always land on their feet and toast always lands butter side down, that if you were to fasten a piece of buttered toast to a cat and throw the combination the two would spin endlessly never hitting the floor  and becoming a perpetual energy machine.

With that as a basis we move on to the all-important presidential election.
Look, does anybody seriously consider that 99% of the public doesn’t know how crooked Hillary Clinton is?
There is no doubt in my mind that everybody knows. So we are left with only one category of voter that is still supporting Hillary Clinton… What few that are left know, but they consider Donald Trump to be the larger evil. 
And of course, the reverse is true of the Donald Trump voter. What scant few there are. But notice please that none of them have a reason for electing Donald Trump that doesn’t directly involve Hillary Clinton.

The trouble of course is, they’re both right…. so far as they go, anyway, and if we could duct tape the two of them together, we could solve the energy crisis. There would be massive pollution of course, but anything for progress.

Now, you will notice that I’ve suggested neither one of them has a great deal in the way of support among the General Public. I say that, because nobody’s voting anymore. Last midterm the reports I saw suggested that only one-third of eligible voters actually voted. The reason as I have speculated in the spaces before is because they think there is nobody to vote for.
The phrase “vote for” is not idly chosen. What each of the candidates would have you do is vote against the opposite side. Far as I’m concerned, that’s not sufficient reason to vote for anybody. And apparently, the vast majority of Americans agree that the choice between the liberal and liberal lite is in fact a Hobson’s choice and they’ve long since decided to stop participating in it.

Would Donald Trump be marginally better than Hillary Clinton? Probably. But marginally is the operative phrase. And it’s certainly nothing to get excited about.

If you think there’s a snowball’s chance down under of Donald Trump appointing any seriously conservative Supreme Court Justice for example I’ve got a few gallons of Florida that I’d like to talk to you about.

Similarly, getting government out of the healthcare picture? Not a chance. He stated flatly several times in this campaign that he likes the idea of single-payer. Remember, friends, this is been the Democrats wet dream for 40 years and longer. And Trump has come out for it. In fact, is there any evidence anywhere that Donald Trump will actually reduce the size and scope and power of government? Can he in fact sign on to Reagan’s Axiom that government isn’t the solution, government is the problem? If there’s any evidence of it I’ve not seen it. Despite many attempts by Trump supporters.

 You know the people that are really excited? The GOP establishment. I can think of no better example of the excitement of the extended lesson with Donald Trump then watching Mitch McConnell celebrating his State delegates helping install the orange man as the Republican nominee. It seems clear the reason that McConnell is celebrating his because he thinks he’s side stepped the conservatives once again.

Remember, the one thing that the GOP establishment is more fearful of than anything else is actually being conservative. They pulled the same garbage on Reagan back in the 76 campaign. I was there. I saw it.

McConnell is among those whose out there making a show of party Unity. That’s supposedly what this orchestration over in Cleveland is all about. But I can tell you about another little get-together that bears a striking resemblance to this one, and it too dripped with party Unity.

Wikipedia suggests that only 7% of the German population ever was a member of the Nazi party. And yet look at what the 7% did.

If you think that comparison is a little over-the-top, I don’t. Look closely at what the establishment did to stop votes from getting to the floor of the convention… not once, but several times.

The result of all of these Shenanigans of course is a less representative government.

If we take the report that only 1/3rd ofeligible Americans are voting anymore, and given recent polling data where the candidates are essentially tied 50/50 that down the middle that means we are dependent for our future on the whims of 15% of the population. All of which makes the unwarranted assumption and that the voter participation rate isn’t going to go down still further in this cycle.

I am sufficiently unimpressed with Donald Trump to suggest that he’s not going to overcome that along with a great many other things.

From Rick Moran, American Thinker:

The Turkish government has arrested 6,000 military and non-military individuals in connection with the failed coup against President Erdogan.

Of those detained, more than 2700 are judges and prosecutors who have opposed Erdogan’s constitutional power grab. An unknown number of journalists, lawyers, and other regime opponents have also been arrested. Erdogan is taking full advantage of the crisis to “clean up” the military and the judiciary where most of the opposition to his rule is based.

This was no coup.  Over two thousand judges and prosecutors arrested as part of some imaginary coup.   If Erdogan is to be taken at his word, it would have been a failed rebellion.   Rather what we have is a Joseph Stalin style purge.

Islamic mass murder in France.

Details, here.

Reax, here.

Need I remind you, Fox News expert Jennifer Barringer would say all you need to convert an ordinary lorry to a deadly assault lorry to to attach a scope. available at any French Krogers.

As for Dim Won, he will likely use the terrorist attack in France to call for more gun control in the United States.

As for me, I ask do we need less guns or less un-assimilated   Muslims?

Does anybody, well anybody smarter than Mrs. Clinton, believe that a candlelight vigil has ever saved a single life?   I certainly do not.   If an actor is intent on killing his fellow human being, no candlelight vigil will convince him otherwise.  No candlelight vigil turned Senator Oldsmobile, nee Kennedy, sober.

The only good news about these fools in Baltimore is that nobody apparently has died.   So they will be spared from having to stage yet another vigil, from CBS News:

BALTIMORE — Police say five people attending a candlelight vigil in for a man killed in west Baltimore were shot when a gunman opened fire on the crowd.

Detective Donny Moses said in a phone interview that about 25 people had gathered about 6:30 p.m. Monday at Fulton and North avenues, where 24-year-old Jermaine Schofield was shot and killed early Sunday.

Maybe it is time to ban and confiscate high powered assault candles?

As far as I’m concerned there’s no better indication of how non-conservative Donald Trump is and then the non reaction of Chuckles the Clown Schumer.
As we’ve indicated he repeatedly, there is no more dangerous place to be than between Charles Schumer and a microphone. Yet, where Donald Trump is concerned, Chuckles has had little if anything to say.
Have a look, see for yourself.

The first step in solving a problem is to admit that there is a problem.   Mrs. Clinton is still in denial over her grossly negligent national security practices, from Dan Spencer, Red State:

Even after the damning findings announced by F.B.I. Director Comey during his July 5, 2015 press conference, and Comey’s equally damaging testimony before the House oversight committee, Hillary Clinton continues to lie about her emails. In a series of interviews Friday afternoon, Hillary pushed back against The F.B.I. director’s finding that Hillary and her colleagues were “extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.”

Hillary had the temerity to tell ABC News’ David Muir that she still stands by her statements. She said that even though most of her statements disproved disproved by the F.B.I. In her CNN interview, Hillary floated an obviously very carefully crafted new email story to take the place of all those previously shown to be prevarications.

If Mrs. Clinton is either too stupid or too stubborn to admit that she is a national security disaster, there no reason to expect the second Clinton regime would protect our national security secrets. It would irresponsible to grant Mrs. Clinton any access to classified information.

?On many of the political groups that I follow, they Trump supporters are going absolutely spastic because they have begun to realize the poor choice that they have made. They begin to realize that it’s a very close election indeed.

Think about it now. In Hillary Clinton we have someone who is unquestionably the worst candidate for the office of President of the United States in American history. Absolutely the worst. And yet can’t seem to get any traction against her. The reason is simple enough… they are equals. Trump, far from being opposition, funded and endorsed Hillary Clinton for years.
I have yet to see a reasonable answer to the question “do you have any reasons whatsoever to vote for Donald Trump that do not involve Hillary Clinton?”
See, telling me how evil Hillary Clinton is is preaching to the choir. All Americans know this. Even most Democrats know this. That’s not a reason to vote for Donald Trump. Especially since he supported her endorsed her  etc. For years.
No of course I will be told that he did so to keep his business is alive. So what you’re telling me is that you want to elect a corrupt businessman to end Hillary Clinton’s corruption? Isn’t trying to buy influence among politicians corruption?
Sorry does not compute.
The  GOP told us all about how they could win without conservative support. Donald Trump gave us the laughable assertion that the reason that Mitt Romney lost his run for office was because he was too conservative. I’ve already demonstrated several times that he wasn’t even close to conservative. 
One can only draw the conclusion that one will not be able to fit water between a Donald Trump Administration and a Hillary Clinton administration. The party of Ronald Reagan has now become indistinguishable from the party of Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton.
And in any event, even assuming that my voting for Donald Trump would remove the corruption you rightly complain about with Hillary Clinton, and that’s a stretch to say the least, it’s not my responsibility to remove the consequences of your poor choices.
  If you want to blame somebody for Hillary Clinton attending the White House when she does, (and she will if Donald Trump takes the nomination… ) …look in the mirror Trump supporters. Look in the mirror. And put the responsibility for Hillary Clinton winning the White House precisely where it belongs.
Here’s a thought. Next time, assuming God grants us a next time, you listen to the conservatives. What do you say?
