This who follow this blog regularly already know that she was using her position for financial gain. Like the marxist she is.
That the media is only now just discovering the Hillary email/using Sec-State position for securing funding for her husband’s Clinton Foundation, tells me that they want the openly marxist Bernie Sanders for president.
This latest revelation confirms what we have suspected all along: that Hillary, through the guise of the Clinton Foundation, has indeed been trading influence within our government for donations. Doesn’t get much more corrupt than that.
It’s easy to become numb to all of the scandals surrounding presumptive Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton — even for those who are wide awake to the dishonest, self-serving fraud that she is.
So when a new revelation is enough to jolt even the mainstream media awake, you know it’s big. A newly-released batch of Hillary’s State Department emails reveal the new bombshell that the former secretary of state rewarded one of her large donors with a position on a sensitive government intelligence board — yeah, one involving tactical nuclear weapons and on other crucial arms control issues — despite having no relevant experience. Nepotism — not to mention compromising our nation’s intelligence and security — at its finest.
NOTE: This is the only scenario in which Donald Trump, or a can of orange juice wins for the republicans in November. Too bad it wasn’t true conservative, Reaganite, Ted Cruz.
Sanders is a classic Marxist self hating Jew……but that won’t matter to the Jew haters.
It’s the sole reason why a Ted Cruz or someone similarly minded was needed to run in this election against the anti-American Democrats, in order to take the fight to the Marxists and as well as help kick-start the Reagan Revolution. Trump, a NYC progressive populist can’t do that.
Dershowitz: Not Surprising ‘Ignoramus’ Bernie Sanders Tapped ‘Professional Israel-Hater’ for Democratic Policy Committee (INTERVIEW)
The Palestinian activist appointed by presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders to the Democratic Platform Drafting Committee is a “professional Israel-hater,” internationally acclaimed legal mind Alan Dershowitz told The Algemeiner on Tuesday.
Dershowitz, a fierce defender of Israel and avowed supporter of the Democratic Party, was referring to Arab American Institute (AAI) President James Zogby, whom Sanders tapped on Monday to help draft party policy.
Dershowitz, who said he’s debated Zogby on numerous occasions, explained why he is “not surprised” that the senator from Vermont contending for the Democratic nomination picked him to fill such an influential position. “Bernie Sanders is an ignoramus when it comes to the Middle East, and he is very strongly biased against Israel. He gets his information from hard-Left, anti-Israel sources, and he doesn’t think for himself,” he said.
Regarding another of Sanders’ anti-Israel appointees to the committee — philosopher Cornel West, a BDS proponent who wrote that the crimes of Hamas “pale in the face of the US-supported Israeli slaughter of innocent civilians,” and accused President Obama of being “most comfortable with upper middle-class white and Jewish men who consider themselves very smart, very savvy and very effective in getting what they want”– Dershowitz said, “Putting two Israel-bashers on the committee risks dividing the Democratic Party over an issue on which they’ve always been united.”
I am very disgusted/revolted with the choices that we have this year, especially when we had a chance to nominate, then elect, a real constitutional (Reaganite) conservative, Ted Cruz.
Trump is a disaster.
The very fact that we are left with such desperate options is not only a rebuke to the professional politicians, but also a painful revelation about the voting public.
Immediately after electing a president with virtually no track record, on the basis of rhetoric and symbolism, and seeing disaster after disaster during his administration, many are now prepared to do the same thing all over again.
More than two centuries ago, Thomas Jefferson said, “Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.” If so, can people who cannot be bothered to look up from their electronic devices expect to remain a free people?

We must frankly face the fact that the front runners in both political parties represent a new low, at a time of domestic polarization and unprecedented nuclear dangers internationally. This year’s general election will offer a choice between a thoroughly corrupt liar and an utterly irresponsible egomaniac.
The Republican establishment, whose serial betrayals of their supporters created the setting for a Donald Trump to arise, must now decide how best to deal with the apparent inevitability of his candidacy.
I’m voting Tree Stump, the only sensible choice, no one else has, or can, earn my vote, Tree Stump will not disappoint me.
This tree stump should run third-party. Stoic. Strong. Silent. Really brings the wood. Would win 32% of the vote. pic.twitter.com/hyPx6Nertb

Thanks Ted for keep the race classy, and only till the end, when the worst of the worst was unleashed by Trump against your father, did you eviscerate the scum ball.
#NeverTrump, #NeverHillary….all for Stump.
I’ve dropped off from reading Bret Stephens awhile ago, it was just a personal choice. I’ve always liked and admired his writing style, especially when he was writing about Arab Muslims’ conflict with the Jewish state of Israel, and other ME issues, but ever since he’s been at the ivory towers of the Wall Street Journal, he’s become a very distant voice for me.
His latest piece in the WSJ is symptomatic of why most conservatives refuse to get their news from the WSJ, let alone its editorial pages. He still doesn’t get it. The GOP is to blame for the rise of Trump, the complete fecklessness of GOP elected officials who caved to Obama’s agenda time and time again gave rise to the anger of its base support.
The only ones who became respected by the base were the one who took up their cause, the people’s cause as their own (Trump was noticeably absent during all of the Tea Party functions/rallies, he was still too busy with insider, cozy relationships with establishment figures), Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, (now) Governor Pence, Scott Walker, Rand Paul, Allen West and on down the line.
Bret Stephens in his WSJ piece The GOP Gets What it Deserves:
In 2014, the “Republican establishment,” as it is now derisively known, succeeded in securing its largest ever majority in the House since 1928. It won nine seats in the Senate and regained the majority for the first time in eight years. The GOP also took control of 31 governorships, with historic gains in state legislatures.
These were significant political achievements, which only awaited a reasonably serious presidential candidate to lead to a sweeping Republican restoration.
Instead, Mr. Cruz used the moment to attempt a party coup by treating every tactical or parliamentary difference of opinion as a test of ideological purity. The party turned on its own leaders, like the much-vilified Mr. Boehner. Then it turned on its (classically) liberal ideas, like free trade and sensible immigration policy.
And now it’s America First time again—the inevitable outcome of the GOP’s descent into populism.
There is fact an establishment, that class of elitists who holds the reigns of power and refuse to allow the people to have a voice in determining how their government is to rule. Bret obviously mingles very well within their clique.
Contrary to Stephen’s implication, the only reason why the GOP won was due to promises made that his clique reneged on, time and again. Mind you, this is the same clique establishment that waved the white flag early on after Obama’s initial win in 2008, declaring themselves now to be a ”regional party”, and now forced to live within that reality.
The Tea Party, which rose to life during the latter Bush years was in direct response to his bailout of corporate America (I have to “abandon the free market in order to “save” it”) conservatives were rightly repulsed by the move and his sentiments. It’s telling that Stephens takes Tea Party successes and makes it the GOP’s, when the establishment had next to nothing to do with it. Within a few months they were busy corralling new reps in the house into doing ”business as usual”.
Ted Cruz and Mike Lee along with sporadic help from Rand Paul and Jeff Sessions helped to place the establishment’s feet to the fire, something that Stephens considers ”as a test for ideological purity”.
Wrong Mr.Stephens, it wasn’t out of ideological purity that these men bucked the system, but out of philosophical principles, something that you can’t even differentiate, the former being based upon an utopian mindset, the latter upon the US constitution, a document crafted with human experience and enlightenment philosophy as a backdrop. That the government and its elected officials serve the people, not the other way around.
The Trump phenomenon consists of people much like in the conservative Cruz movement who want a return of the rule of law, a representational republic, secure borders, reversing the trend in accumulated debt, the welfare state etc.etc., the difference being the vehicle that brings that into the White House. I have big problems with Trump supporters who look between their fingers at everything Donald Trump has said and done during his business and political career, but I have even more problems with those who look down their noses from their ivory towers (of the establishment) and dare lecture us.
John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, Reince Preibus and the entire rotting lot of the establishment, has sold this country down the drain for self aggrandizement. The party hat counters and their acolytes have no room to wag a finger, they are the sole reason why the Left has been so successful in ruining the country, not us who rise up in protest and in political action to reverse their disasters.

Trump’s Political Hitman Flip-Flops; Suggests Donald The ‘Candidate’ Will Not ‘Evolve’ But ‘Campaign’ Will
Rather than explaining his campaign’s inconsistencies, Manafort opted to attack GOP rival Ted Cruz instead. “There’s the liar, not Trump. I mean, he’s got to change the narrative,” Manafort barked. “He’s losing”
Unlike his main competition………
The choice is a clear one, a dem in drag (Trump) a full throated marxist (Hillary or Bernie) or a Reaganite conservative constitutionalist (Ted Cruz).
NOTE: Dear Melanie, there is no such thing as someone being ”ultra” for adhering to the republic’s founding document, anymore than a banker is in stipulating the language of your mortgage contract.
Those of a secular bent don’t want to hear this, but the West will only save itself if it restores its cultural strength by promoting a muscular Christianity. It will only do that in turn if Christianity reconnects to its Jewish heritage. Without its base in Judaism, as Cruz and other (but by no means all) Christians understand, Christianity is nothing.
As I see it: Mussolini vs Lucrezia Borgia? There is an alternative
American Jews are horrified by the choice they think will face them at November’s presidential election. If they adjust their perspective, however, there is another option.
Travelling in the US last week I found Jews, like many others, in a state of extreme agitation.
The Trump phenomenon, they raged, was beyond belief. How could America be doing this to itself, possibly nominating as a presidential candidate a man who was a crude and unstable know-nothing, a bigoted authoritarian and potential despot, a threat to America’s future and the entire world? They might have no option, said Republican Jews in despair, but to vote for Hillary.
No! cried others who were equally despairing.
How could you even think of voting for Hillary, what with the email scandal, with her past support for the PLO and the bullying way she treated Israel while she was secretary of state, with the Muslim Brotherhood types and other Israel-bashers in her close circle? Yes, granted, said the first group, but at least she’s an experienced politician, at least she’s kinda done the job already, at least she knows how to behave in government. What, came the response, after Benghazi? After the murder there of the ambassador and three others on her watch, the attempt to sanitize the atrocity and then the cover-up of that attempt, after her “What difference does it make” outburst at the congressional hearing? So it went on back and forth with voices raised: Trump vs Hillary, the unspeakable versus the uneatable, Mussolini versus Lucrezia Borgia. There was, it seemed, no alternative. None.
Um, what about, I asked in a very small voice, Ted Cruz? Wouldn’t he be an acceptable alternative? Both sides looked at me in horror. On this they were agreed. Ted Cruz was totally, but totally, unacceptable. Why? Because he was an ultra-conservative, evangelical Christian.
There is, however, another factor about Cruz which is more important but which eludes those Americans who recoil at his name.
Recently, Cruz spoke at a meeting of a group called In Defense of Christians. Some Palestinian Christian supporters of Syria’s President Assad and also Hezbollah were present, and Cruz was booed off the stage.
He told them: “Those who hate Israel hate America. Those who hate Jews hate Christians…
And the very same people who persecute and murder Christians right now, who crucify Christians, who behead children, are the very same people who target Jews for their faith, for the same reason.”
Unlike other politicians, Cruz puts Jews and Christians, Israel and the West, together.
He joins up the dots because he sees the wider picture: that radical Islamism is waging war against the West as a Judeo-Christian civilization.
Very few Western leaders get this. Even fewer are prepared to make a stand specifically in defense of Christianity and the Jewish values which underpin it.
No, Trump should be ashamed of himself for whining like a sore loser over his own mistakes in trying to secure delegates.
The process is a part of federalism, each state has the right to choose their own delegates in the way they see fit. If he didnät know this, then that’s on him, not the process. Impugning the process is one of the most damaging, detrimental things a candidate could do and that’s unforgivable.
NOTE: Trump has received 22% more in delegates over the number of votes received, to Ted Cruz’s 14%. It favors the front runner, and the dolt is complaining.
Trump Blasts RNC Chairman: ‘Reince Priebus Should Be Ashamed of Himself’
Donald Trump ripped into Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus Tuesday over gripes the GOP’s process for selecting delegates is “rigged” and unfair.
“It’s a disgrace for the party. And Reince Priebus should be ashamed of himself,” Trump told The Hill. “He should be ashamed of himself because he knows what’s going on.”
The brash billionaire’s complaints came after he lost all of Colorado’s 34 delegates to rival Ted Cruz. Trump and his campaign aides have called the state’s process “corrupt” and have said complaints will be filed against the Colorado Republican Party.
“The delegate situation is a very unjust way of doing things,” Trump told The Hill.
No they’re not, they’re illegal aliens allowed to stay by the gross disregard of US law by both parties. The people have not sanctioned this whatsoever.
This is the same BS from Finnish state TV YLE producer and correspondent in a twitter exchange with the TT yesterday.
DHS chief sad over deportations: ‘Is it pleasant? Absolutely not.’
Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson addresses an audience during a forum at John F. Kennedy School of Government on the campus of Harvard University, in Cambridge, Mass. (AP Photo/Steven Senne)
The nation’s top immigration officer said that the “11 million” undocumented aliens in the United States are “not going away,” are “in effect” citizens, and added that deporting the few the administration wants out is unpleasant.
Jeh Johnson, secretary of Homeland Security, told Harvard University students this week that the administration is focused on its plan to integrate illegals into America, despite the policy being tied up in court.
What’s even more depressing is that Trump was even considered a republican let alone a conservative in the first place, he’s nothing but a Dem-in-drag.
very well might lead to this…..
Over at PJ Media today I discuss how the potential Commander-in-Chief is dangerously divorced from reality.
It’s a nightmare that could all too easily come true: the Republican Party denies Donald Trump the nomination, he bolts, and Hillary Clinton, unindicted by a sympathetic Obama Justice Department, becomes president. If she does, it is virtually certain that the Obama administration’s lackadaisical and fantasy-based response to the jihad threat would continue.
Hillary made that clear Tuesday morning in her response to the latest jihad terror attacks in Brussels, in which at least 28 people were killed.
The mass murders were “deeply distressing,” she said, but the “dream of a whole, free Europe … should not be walked away from,” and “we’ve got to work this through consistent with our values.” Her implication was clear: any response to what is rapidly becoming a state of war in Europe must not reject the multiculturalist fantasies that created the state of war in the first place. The Muslim migrants, including any number of jihadis, must continue to stream into Europe, for to stop them would end the “dream of a whole, free Europe” and not be “consistent with our values.”
Her lockstep establishment response was no surprise. In November 2015, Hillary tweeted: “Let’s be clear: Islam is not our adversary. Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism.” Did even she believe these words as she wrote them? She may indeed subscribe to the mainstream Leftist view that Muslims have nothing to do with terrorism, and that any Muslim who does get involved with terrorism ceases at that very moment to be a Muslim. But she has never bothered to explain how she proposes to deal with those troublesome people who identify themselves as Muslims and not only commit acts of terrorism, but justify those actions and find recruits among peaceful Muslims by pointing to Islamic teachings.
He’s an idiot pandering to anti-Semites for their vote with screwing Israel as a sop.
This is basically what Manfred Gerstenfeld talked about in a piece I posted a few days ago, about blaming Jews for anti-Semitism. Quoting the late Elan Steinberg, senior advisor to the World Jewish Congress:
“Let’s understand things clearly: Anti-Semitism is not caused by Jews; it’s caused by anti-Semites. One can certainly be critical of Bush’s policy or Sharon’s policy, but any deviation from the understanding of the real cause of anti-Semitism is not merely a disservice, but a historic lie.”6
Middle-East violence over the past 6 decades is caused by Muslims themselves, with one faction rising up against the other for a multitude of different reasons. Israel has nothing to do with that, only with what touches its own borders. The moronic marxist is a clueless baboon, or cold hearted panderer.
Sanders To Dearborn Muslims: Israel’s Existence To Blame For Mideast ‘Hatred And Warfare’
“For decades now, there has been hatred and warfare in the Middle East,” Sander said. “All I can tell you is I will make every single effort to bring rational people on both sides [of the Israel/Arab conflict] together, so that hopefully we can have through a level playing field – the United States treating everybody in that region equally – hopefully, and I know that there are people of goodwill in Israel and the Arab communities,”

I picked this up from National Review, but added one more, Rubio……
But this picture scares the living hell out of me, seen it before in the last two presidential elections with cult worshipping Obamabots…….
I for one will never hero worship a politician no matter who it is. This pic tells it all about the many falling for this guy. It sickens me to see this happening with republicans.
Marco has a lot of ‘splaining’ to do…..
Conservative icon and grassroots heroine Phyllis Schlafly has released a new report extensively detailing Sen. Marco Rubio’s (R-FL) 79% efforts to deceive the American people in his determined pursuit to open the nation’s borders.
Schlafly’s 15-page report on Rubio’s “betrayal” provides hyperlinked sources to document Rubio’s “big con.”
Schlafly’s memo warns the American people that Rubio’s push to deliver globalist immigration policies for his donors is not finished. “There is likely no person in the United States of America in a better position to enact mass immigration legislation than a President Rubio — no one who could deliver more votes in both parties for open borders immigration,” the memo states. “Senator Rubio is not Main Street’s Obama, he is Wall Street’s Obama: President Obama was a hardcore leftist running as a centrist; Senator Rubio is a Wall Street globalist running as a tea party conservative.”
The report is broken up into more than a dozen subsections, including “LYING TO CONSERVATIVE MEDIA,” in which Schlafly details how Rubio made countless false promises to Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, National Review, and others. “Rubio traded shamelessly on the affection and trust conservatives had placed in him,” the memo states. “His deceptions about his immigration bill rivaled and exceeded Obama’s claims about disastrous Obamacare.”
Although in recent months, many of National Review’s writers have sought to boost Rubio’s candidacy, the memo later notes that “National Review has never received an apology for being repeatedly lied to by Rubio.” The memo reports, “To this day, Rubio has not only never retracted one of his false statements — never admitted any wrongdoing — but never even apologized to those he deceived, and their millions of listeners. Instead, he is raising more money and telling the same lies all over again, as he continues his push for mass amnesty and mass immigration.”
Another subsection of the memo entitled “AMERICAN WORKERS CAN’T CUT IT”states:
In a for-attribution interview with Ryan Lizza, two senior Rubio staffers expressed frustration that they couldn’t get even more foreign workers crammed into the bill for their boss. They explained:
‘There are American workers who, for lack of a better term, can’t cut it.’
Rubio’s spokesman — now his campaign spokesman — also compared opponents of amnesty to slaveholders. More on that here.
The memo also documents the back-room deals involved in the bill. A subsection entitled,“IMMIGRATION-FOR-PROFIT” reports that “Rubio’s lawyer, who wrote the bill, also enriched his clients through it.”
True conservative? eh ….no, vote Ted Instead!
Following Rick Santorum’s inability to name a single achievement of Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 79% , the media sought to answer the question for themselves. Yet many reporters appear to have come up empty handed.
As The Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza writes, a “major part of the problem is that Rubio doesn’t have all that many accomplishments in the Senate.”
“When Rubio is asked to name his single greatest achievement in the Senate, do you hear crickets?” tweeted the National Journal’s Ron Fournier.
Though Rick Santorum was unable to name the accomplishments of the man he just endorsed, there are indeed several accomplishments that are quite noteworthy. Below are a few of Sen. Rubio’s achievements that Rick Santorum could have identified on MSNBC this morning:
(1) The Rubio-Schumer Gang of Eight Bill
The Washington Examiner’s Byron York has described the 2013 Rubio-Schumer bill as Rubio’s “signature accomplishment.” Although Santorum seemed reluctant to mention it, Rubio’s immigration bill is probably the first accomplishment that comes to mind when anyone thinks of Rubio’s very brief career in the U.S. Senate.
Rubio’s immigration bill would have tripled the issuances of green cards, doubled the dispensation of foreign worker visas, and granted citizenship — and, thereby, welfare access and voting privileges — to illegal immigrants.
Reports ranging from the The National Review, to the Tampa Bay Times, to the Washington Post, to the New Yorker have all suggested that the Gang of Eight bill would have likely not passed the Senate if not for Sen. Rubio’s tireless efforts. Indeed, Rubio was the key salesman of the Obama-backed immigration agenda. As Ryan Lizza of The New Yorker reported at the time, Rubio served as “the Gang’s official ambassador to the right,” and was able to convince prominent conservatives to promote the open borders legislation.
Lizza wrote: “[Democratic Senator Bob] Menendez told me that Rubio’s role was to ‘work over the conservative universe, particularly the conservative opinion-maker universe,’ in order to ‘neutralize them’ and, in some cases, ‘proselytize them.’ Schumer said, ‘He’s the real deal.’”
Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin told Lizza, “[Rubio] has been invaluable… He’s willing to go on the most conservative talk shows, television and radio, Rush Limbaugh and the rest.”
Moreover, Rubio was also able to successfully strike down all conservative amendments to the Gang of Eight’s proposal. As Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 94% pointed out, ““Marco and Schumer basically had a secret deal to block all amendments.” Indeed, Rubio joined Chuck Schumer in voting down an amendment offered by Sen. Thune, which would have required the completion of a double-layer border fence. He also successfully defeated an amendment offered by Sen. Vitter, which would require the implementation of an exit-entry tracking system in order to prevent foreign nationals from illegally overstaying their visas.
Sen. Rubio cast the 60th and deciding vote to fast-track the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement. By giving President Obama fast-track powers, Rubio essentially helped to ensure the passage of not only the TPP, but all subsequent trade pacts, which are now liberated from Senate filibuster, amendment process, and constitutional treaty vote.
This represents a significant legislative victory for the young Senator, who previously endorsed TPP and described Obama’s trade deal as the “second pillar” of a President Rubio’s three-pillar foreign policy strategy.
Moreover, Rubio was also successful in promoting foreign currency manipulation by helping to vote down a provision to crack down on the illicit practice that had been proposed by Ohio Republican Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) 50%.
