They told me if Donald Trump was elected…

Because he was such a belligerent buffoon, he was almost certain to start WW3. Then again, news like this, coming from the Nobel Peace Prize winner’s administration, where then SecState Clinton showed her awesome diplomatic skills and “reset” the frayed relations evil warmongering Boosh so damaged with the Russians. shit, I remember the current Community Organizer in Chief and the wanna-be crime syndicate kingpin that wants to get the job mocking those that warned the reset had failed and in fact had caused relations to really sour. I guess this sort of stuff makes sense if you have the ability to see the nuance in things. At least that’s what the collectivist crime syndicate tells us rubes when we try to point out their dissonance and discorded bullshit.

I am going what I have seen from Obama. He promised to stop all the strife, heal the world, and stop the rising oceans, only to start even more wars than war mongering Boosh. Shit, he even managed to un-win both of those wars Boosh started and had all but wound down, despite the treasonous attempts by the left to make them fail. Now the Middle East is a disaster, Iraq and Afghanistan are firmly in the loose column, with Egypt (Arab spring baby!), Libya (where they went to war so a Clinton partner-in-crime could make money on oil), and Syria all turned into disastrous war zones. Iran is getting a nuke, Saudi Arabia is fighting the Iranians in Yemen, Turkey clearly is heading down the path to an Islamic dictatorship after what now looks like a clearly staged coup attempt that allowed Edrogan to purge his political enemies, and Israel is waiting for Obama to screw them one last time on the way out.

Things are not better elsewhere either. North Korea is still a huge problem. The Philippines is shifting towards China, Japan and South Korea are thinking they may need their own nukes because the US can’t be trusted (and they are right), Russia as shown above is causing trouble, and there are scores of other hot spots across the globe where a military forced to keep a ridiculously high tempo and is wearing down the people and gear it has are being told to do more with less. In fact, the world is probably in a more precarious and dangerous situation – due to lack of leadership from someone I will leave unmentioned – than it was since the Cold War. And maybe it is even worse than that. not that things are very good here at home either. Rigged primaries, rigged campaigns, cheating and lying, abuse of power and blatant banana republic legal challenges, all hidden by a complicit group of propagandists claiming to be objective.

What you didn’t know any of that? Maybe that was because of the DNC operatives with bylines now finding no reason to complain about the US being belligerent. After all, these are not really war-wars, and this strife can’t be blamed on the inept foreign policy of th last 8 years, right? Obama, and by definition both his previous and future SecStates, are doing it for peace! Not to steal oil, or avenge daddy, or whatever other stupid trope the left fed people back when. Hillary, having such a long and distinguished resume of great achievements, will fix it all!

No matter who wins this election, Americans lose. I guess the choice is between which one will do the least damage, and I that those of you thinking that will be Clinton need to lay off whatever controlled substance you are abusing.

Janet Reno Gone

Janet Reno, one of the longest serving Attorneys General in American history, has died.

Janet Reno, who rose from a rustic life on the edge of the Everglades to become attorney general of the United States — the first woman to hold the job — and whose eight years in that office placed her in the middle of some of the most divisive episodes of the Clinton presidency, died on Monday at age 78.

She died at her home in Miami-Dade County, Fla., from complications of Parkinson’s disease, according to her sister, Margaret Hurchalla. The disease was diagnosed in November 1995, while she was still in office.

Ms. Reno’s tenure as attorney general was bracketed by two explosive events: a deadly federal raid on the compound of a religious cult in Waco, Tex., in 1993, and the seizing in 2000 by federal agents of Elián González, a young Cuban refugee who was at the center of an international custody battle and a political tug of war.

In those moments, and others in between, Ms. Reno was applauded for a straightforward integrity and a willingness to accept responsibility, but she was also fiercely criticized. Republicans accused her of protecting President Bill Clinton and Vice President Al Gore when, in 1997, she refused to allow an independent counsel to investigate allegations of fund-raising improprieties in the White House.

My opinion on Reno’s tenure is definitely mixed. On the one hand, she presided over the prosecutions of the terrorists responsible for the first WTC attack and Oklahoma City. She bucked Clinton a number of times by handing investigations over to the Independent Prosecutor that he wanted squashed, such as the Lewinsky matter.

On the other hand, she supported garbage lawsuits against the tobacco industry and Microsoft. She authorized the Elian Gonzales raid and the Branch Davidian raid (although she took responsibility for the Waco disaster). She wrecked Richard Jewell’s life and, as Dade County State Attorney, helped create the Miami Method that results in numerous bogus convictions of innocent people on child molestation charges.

When I look over her career though, the thing that stands out is that she was her own person. She made decisions based on what she felt was right, alternatively angering people within the Clinton Administration and in Congress when she didn’t agree with them. She has a sense of humor about herself and took responsibility for her decisions. For that, at least, I’ll wish her to RIP.

Some Thoughts on The Polls

There’s a nerd fight going on between Nate Silver and several other analysts about how to interpret the Presidential election polls. Silver is projecting Clinton as having about a 65% chance of winning. HuffPo and Princeton are projecting her at 98%. I have some thoughts over at my personal blog:

Put aside everything you know about the candidates, the election and the polls. If someone offered you a 50-to-1 or a 100-to-1 bet on any major party candidate winning the election, would you take it? I certainly would. I would have bet $10 on Mondale in 1984 if it was a potential $1000 payoff. And he lost by 20 points.

It seems a huge stretch to give 98 or 99% odds to Clinton, considering:

  • Clinton has never touched 50% in the poll aggregates.
  • There are still large numbers of undecideds and third party supporters who will doubtless vote for one of the two candidates (and Trump’s recent surge has come from fleeing Johnson voters).
  • We have fewer live interview polls now than we did in 2012.
  • As Nate Silver noted, the average difference between final polls and the election has been about two points.

Basically, I think Wang and HuffPo are not accounting enough for the possibility that the polls are significantly off. In the last 40 years, we’ve had one Presidential election (1980) where the polls were off by a whopping seven points. That’s enough for Trump to win easily (or for Clinton to win in a landslide).

HuffPo’s analysis seems kind of bizarre to me, actually. They currently have Clinton up 5 points in the polls. There is not a single national poll that as Clinton up by that much right now. The average polls advantage for Clinton is two points. Silver estimates that corresponds to a real advantage of three. If he’s right, Clinton has an advantage but any outcome is possible.

Now, If Her First Name Was Hillary……….

One of the top candidates for social media villain of the year was a Playboy model who did a really really stupid thing;

Los Angeles prosecutors have charged a Playboy model who took a photo of a naked woman in a gym locker room and posted it to social media with insulting comments about the woman’s body.

The city attorney’s office said Friday that Dani Mathers faces a misdemeanor count of invasion of privacy. She is scheduled to be arraigned Nov. 28. It wasn’t immediately known if Mathers has an attorney.

It is in my nature that when everyone zigs, I zag. Yes, I was hoping charges would be brought against her, mostly for the harm she did to one particular woman. But ever since this broke, the only question these twitter/facebook vultures had was whether Mathers should be boiled in oil or buried up to her neck in a red ant hole. None of these folks ever made a mistake in their lives, even a really atrocious one like this.

Hopefully, she will make a deal, no jail time and a $10,000 fine, with that money going straight to the woman in the photo.

Somehow methinks that if this was an average looking woman, the hate and vitriol would be much less. But when a nice looking (but so immature) women does this, feed her to wild dogs.

Wither the FBI

What?

Suddenly renewed activity on an FBI Twitter account publicizing Freedom of Information Act releases has prompted an internal bureau review of the propriety of such activity so close to the Nov. 8 election, according to a source involved in the matter.

In emails obtained by Government Executive sent to an ex-investigative reporter who filed complaints, the deputy at the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility on Tuesday revealed that the complaint about possible political favoritism in tweeting has been referred to the FBI’s Inspection Division.

Here’s the story. Last week, the FBI’s FOIA account, which had been silent for over a year, started tweeting out documents relating to investigations of Donald Trump’s father, the Clinton Foundation and Clinton’s pardons. I admit that I was a bit bumfuzzled by why they would suddenly do this. And a lot of people felt, especially in the wake of the Comey letter, that the FBI was trying to influence the election by dishing dirt on Clinton.

In fact, the FBI has become a focal point of controversy over the last week, with wild and frequently anonymous claims that the FBI is massively pro-Trump, is trying to tip the election and despises Clinton along with counter-claims that the FBI is favoring Clinton by not recommending charges, holding back on critical documents that implicate her and dragging its heels on the e-mail investigation. My impression — and this is just me spitballing — is that there are politicized factions within the FBI right now, vying to craft a narrative. And journalists, eager for access, are lapping up whatever they’re saying.

This would be not be the first time the FBI has played politics. Under Hoover, the COINTELPRO program infiltrated and disrupted political groups they didn’t like. This culminating in spying on MLK, discovering he was cheating on his wife and sending him a letter urging him to kill himself. They’ve also played politics on a smaller scale, famously tarring Richard Jewell as a terrorist so that people wouldn’t be afraid of further attacks at the ’96 games (an accusation that almost certainly contributed to his death at a young age).

But this is the first time I’ve seen both side making credible accusations that the Bureau is trying to influence an election. This is … not good. This indicates Comey is either doing this on purpose or has lost control of his own bureau. I would say there should be an investigation, but, given the time constraint, that would mean either Clinton or Trump doing it, neither of whom can be trusted. Probably the best thing would be for Obama to appoint a bipartisan investigation team (comprised of former FBI officials or, better yet, former officials from another federal law enforcement agency) to figure out what’s going on here. Because the FBI should not be playing politics. They should be doing their damned job.

Is There A Floor On American Stupidity?

Another day, another Hillary scandal, lately rapid fire but as predictable as another truly vapid comment from…….oh hell, you know who you are. Like the sun rising and setting, and far beyond the point of ,”Water is wet and fire is hot, anything else?”. Almost identical in this category is the level/number/intensity of morons walking our streets. Not only do these morons vote, but it seems that they all use twitter.

I saw this yesterday, why is it that the dumbest always have the thinnest skin?

Some Twitterers Thought There Was a KKK Sign at the World Series

Notice how the writer had to explain to his audience that K in baseball stands for a strikeout. Some could dismiss this by attributing these dopey comments as written by women, with the neanderthal follow up of ,”What do they know about baseball”, but many were men. Never miss an opportunity to feel aggrieved even if you haven’t a clue as to what you are looking at.

Products of the public school system, so many folks got short changed in their critical thinking education.

Whole segments of entertainment are designed around asking average folks questions, having them embarrass themselves, then having the audience laugh at them. Waters World on The Factor, Jay-walking with Jay Leno, youtube is filled with them.

One regular youtuber, having his own channel for his videos, is Mark Dice. Here is one of his latest;

Yes, it is allowed for all you other Americans to realize these videos are always made on the sandy beaches of California, thus proving that even in the land of dopes, we rule supreme.

Desperation?

When I first saw this piece, I thought it’s title was “Hillary eats souls to boost lagging black turnout”, which is actually more accurate to me, considering the type of person she is. Alas, the story was about Hillary pandering to try and pretend she cares. Not that I think even video of Hillary eating souls would make her fans turn their backs on her. It’s not as if they don’t know she is a scary thing already, but just don’t care because they actually are crazy enough to think she cares about them.

Ask yourself why they would do something like this..

And by “this” I mean why would a law firm risk their reputation and engage in clear shady criminal behavior to donate to democrats in general, and the Clintons, in particular. From the article:

Hillary Clinton’s campaign is returning thousands of dollars in donations linked to what may be one of the largest straw-donor schemes ever uncovered.

A small law firm that has given money to Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Harry Reid, President Obama and many others is accused of improperly funneling millions of dollars into Democratic Party coffers. The program was exposed by the Center for Responsive Politics and the same team of Boston Globe investigative reporters featured in the movie “Spotlight.”

The Thornton Law Firm has just 10 partners, but dollar for dollar, it’s one of the nation’s biggest political donors, reports CBS News correspondent Tony Dokoupil.

But according to the firm’s own documents – leaked by a whistleblower — days or even hours after making these donations, partners received bonuses matching the amount they gave.

“Once the law firm knew that we had these records, they didn’t deny that this was the case,” said Scott Allen, Boston Globe’s Spotlight editor.

“If you give a donation and then somebody else reimburses you for that contribution, that is a clear violation of the spirit and the letter of the law at the state and federal levels,” Allen added.

First I want to mention that for every one of these cases of malfeasance we uncover there are, like in the case of roaches or other pests, hundreds if not thousands of others we never hear about. The democratic party is a corrupt influence peddling monopoly. I think we have so much evidence today that if you need the power of government to help you make money, from something that will be economically destructive and produces no value, you buy favors from a democrat, that this assertion is indisputable.

The democratic party may pretend that they are the party of the little people and that it is the others that are in bed with the evil oligarchy of the rich, but the facts bear out differently. When you need favors, you buy it from democrats. This reality is by design, and has enriched a ton of the worlds most corrupt people. And Clintons are not just the pinnacle of that corruption, but have positioned themselves in such a way that they are the gatekeepers of that influence peddling monopoly as well as above the law.

It is also not a coincidence that the legal profession is so predominantly skewed towards the left. sure they would like you to believe it is because they share the empathy shown on the left, but the reality, as more and more instances like this show, the legal profession depends heavily on government over regulation to make big money. And who sells better favors for them to make big money than the democrats?

Before you idiotically try to defend the Clintons, note that these Clintons have been caught repeatedly violating these laws. When it was exposed that they took foreign donations, recently revealed details show Clinton’s reaction wasn’t to shut that practice down, but to try and make sure they could keep doing it.

Think hard about the fact that the Clintons, and democrats in general, react when caught by basically counting on the DNC operatives with bylines to defend them and to keep doing more of the same. Can you imagine the level of corruption these people would reach if they were rewarded with the WH?

Have you heard about this from the DNC operatives with bylines yet?

You would certainly think that Attorney General Loretta Lynch facing a federal lawsuit to give details of a secret meeting she had with Bill Clinton on a plane on June 27 would be top news. But the only place I found this was in the foreign press. I am certain the reason that the DNC operatives with bylines are not reporting it is because it would be yet another nail in the coffer of the corrupt Clinton and democratic party apparatus. It is a scandalous thing that when this occurred the DNC operatives with bylines chose to attack those pointing out this smelled of something downright dirty and corrupt. It is even more disturbing that they are ignoring the story and just more proof that they are completely in the bag for these criminals. The sad truth is that we have been turned into a banana republic by these crooks.
