Obama Administration Is Lost & Confused On Terrorism

I wanted to discover the depth of the Obama Administration’s culpability in the Orlando Massacre, because something teed off both Sen McCain and President Obama this week. McCain when he accused Obama for being directly responsible for the events in Orlando, and Obama when he showed his thin skin over Trumps challenge to call the act one of Radical Islamic Terror.

Both got me to thinking, there must be something there for such practiced Pols to lose their cools publicly like that.

But let’s begin with some myth busting and expose Orlando for what it was – an act very much in line with Islam and Sharia law. So says quite a few Imams in Australia:

Imam Yusuf Peer, the chairman of the Council of Imams Queensland, who is a member of the national peak body, told The Weekend Australian yesterday that it was “not permissible” to be gay and Muslim.

When asked if sharia ­required death, Imam Peer said: “Yes.”

Imam Peer said because a “proper process” involving “committees” applied, it prevented the “random bashing and killing” of homosexuals: “Nobody can implement Islam­ic sharia on their own. There is a procedure, there is arbitration, there is a committee.”

So the method Omar Mateen used was wrong, but the result maybe not so much??

Sheik Alsuleiman has previously quoted Islamic law on the punishment for zina — sex outside marriage — in which he asked his followers to “remember” sharia calls for the death of those who commit adultery.

Extremist Islamic group Hizb ut-Tahrir’s spokesman Uthman Badar said on Facebook yesterday that Mr Turnbull was condemning the “normative Islam­ic position on homosex­uality” and criticised fellow Muslims for listening to a lecture on “how they should take liberalism instead of Islam as reference point” in their lives.

OK – so we get the picture. And given how LGBTs have become more and more tolerated by the Great Satan America, it is not a huge leap of logic to see a connection.

So what has the Obama administration done to protect LGBT Americans? The answer is sad. Step 1 was to stop checking people from certain countries as they entered the US (a program not too different from what Trump has discussed at times):

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced on April 28 [AJStrata: 2011] that it would terminate the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System (NSEERS) …

Individuals seeking admission to the United States and who were required to participate in the program were subject to a specialized entry process at U.S. ports of entry, including having their fingerprints and photograph taken. Participating visitors were also [sic] be required to “check-in” with immigration officials 30 days after being admitted to the United States and again at the end of one year, in order for immigration officials to verify that they were complying with the terms of their visas.

Additionally, the Department of Justice (DOJ) required certain individuals from the designated countries who were already in the United States to also participate in NSEERS.

Geez, seems reasonable.  The countries on the “Can’t Just Walk In” list were:

Afghanistan, Algeria, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Egypt, Eritrea, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, North Korea, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, and Yemen.

So we paid special attention to people from these countries with known radicals bent on destroying western civilization. At least until 2011.

According to DHS, between September 2002 and the end of September 2003 (nearly the full course of the special registration component of the NSEERS program), 83,519 individuals participated in special registration interviews at immigration offices nationwide. As a result of these interviews, 13,799 individuals were placed in removal proceedings.

Emphasis mine.  Can we speculate that this means 13,799 possible deadly attacks were foiled? I mean, to be an individual of such threatening stature to warrant being expelled, I would think so?

Of the remainder of the 83,519 individuals monitored in NSEERS, how many decided not to perform a terrorist act once they realized they were exposed? Would any sleeper cell want them??

But Step 2 was the worse action taken by the Obama Administration. Instead of focusing on people from areas of the world known for their hatred of all things American, Obama’s DHS was out training law enforcement to watch Evangelicals, Mormons, Jews and Christians.

Yes, you read that right. In fact, Evangelicals were at the top of the threat list (now we know why we don’t want to use secret lists to curb constitutional rights).

Written on Monday, April 8, 2013

Todd Starnes, writing for Fox News, reports that during a U.S. Army training event, an Army instructor cited Evangelical Christianity and Catholicism as examples of religious extremism—along with Al Qaeda and Hamas.

Not only was it implied that Evangelical Christianity is as dangerous as a terrorist organization, but it was at the top of the list of threats. And, here is that list:
Evangelical Christianity
Muslim Brotherhood
Ultra-Orthodox Jews
Christian Identity
Al Qaeda
Hamas
Abu Sayyam
Ku Klux Klan
Sri Ram Sene
Catholicism
Kamane Movement / Kach
Army of God
Sunni Muslims
Nation of Islam
Jewish Defense League
Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints
Hutaree

Islamophobia” was also listed as a form of religious extremism.

“We find this offensive to have Evangelical Christians and the Catholic Church to be listed among known terrorist groups,” Ron Crews, executive director of the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty, said. “It is dishonorable for any U.S. military entity to allow this type of wrongheaded characterization.”

Red emphasis mine, black emphasis from original. Talk about confused! I do not recall Evangelicals, Jews, Mormons, Catholics or Christians killing mass numbers of people in the name of god since 9/11

At least not American ones. The cause of Team Obama’s confusion seems to be a bigotry towards religion in general:

“There was a pervasive attitude in the presentation that anything associated with religion is an extremist.”

A report issued by the Department of Justice in 2011 relating to “National Security Division Statistics on Unsealed International Terrorism and Terrorism – Related Convictions 9/11/01 – 3/ 18/10? identified, after analysis, more than 80% of all such convictions tied to international terrorist groups and homegrown terrorism involved defendants driven by a radical Islamist agenda.

Wow.  No wonder Obama is angry at being called out and McCain accused him of creating the mother of all FUBARs. He really is going to avoid facing Islamic threats at any cost, isn’t he? Maybe Obama does need the qualifier “Islamic” so he can distinguish an Evangelical from an Islamists.

The left completely exposed America to violence and death under Team Obama, and Hillary wants more of the same, but faster!

Just Wow.

Terrorism Is No Excuse To Tear Up Our Constitution

I am very disturbed by the train of thought percolating through the Political Industrial Complex the last day or two.

[Political Industrial Complex = Career politicians, their career staff, the sea of political consultants, the crony donors and their lobbyists, the career lead bureaucrats, and of course the pliant “news” media. Basically, the political insiders who like to believe they are “elite”]

The reaction to the Orlando Radical Islamic Terror massacre has emphasized how misguided and distracted the Political Industrial Complex is.  It has emphasized how distant and unconnected from reality these people have become in their limos and gated communities. It has emphasized why they need to be fired.

Apparently, due to the Orlando massacre, it is time to suspend our constitutional rights!

Imagine if the federal government suspended your right to your faith, your right to assemble and your right to speak your mind based on your inclusion on a secret list of American citizens with no prior due process and no open explanation of how you got on that list or how you can get off of it.

Absurd, right? So, why is it absurd to apply that scenario to your 1st amendment rights, but it’s “common sense” when it comes to your 2nd amendment rights?

I listened to Larry O’Connor – author of this great piece – debate his “conservative” side kick on WMAL Radio. It was disgusting.  His side kick asked the dumb question “if they cannot fly, why can they buy a gun?”

Because [insert your favorite insult to intellect here] flying is not a constitutional right! But even worse – this idea WOULD NOT have stopped the Orlando massacre. So why even tie this dumb idea to an event if it wouldn’t solve the risk??

Why? Because the PIC does not care about the victims, it cares about its agenda, its power base, its echo chambers.

O’Connor points out this is all a shell game, because the “no fly” list is not what Congress is proposing,  it is a falsehood for the “too dumb” masses:

But the aide said Feinstein has sometimes referred to the no-fly database rather than the broader one her legislation actually covers for this reason: “That’s more relatable to the average person — people have heard of the no-fly list, not necessarily [ones like] the National Counterterrorism Center’s TIDE database.

… clearly, the Democrats aren’t looking to actually get anything done. They are looking for a fund-raising issue and a divisive wedge issue to polarize Republicans and those of us who crave our liberty over pretty much everything else.

The larger secret list contains around a millions names. But even if it contained 10 names, trading our rights away is not the answer.

Omar Mateen was on the FBI’s radar.  They were even informed of his attempts to buy bullets and body armor:

Abell said that Mateen asked for level 3 body armor, but the store doesn’t sell it. He also said Mateen made a phone call and spoke Arabic before asking for bulk ammunition.

The employees did not sell him any ammunition and Abell stated that “we contacted FBI direct” after Mateen left the store, but they were “not as attentive as we would have hoped.”

So even when notified, the FBI (and the administration overall) seems to be very hesitant to pursue  threats when the threat is from a Muslim. Hesitant to the point of paralyzed it seems.  Which is not a surprise, since the administration bans the words that best describe Radical Islamic Terrorism. Hell, they even want to ban the phrase “Illegal Alien”!

Here are my proposals:

  • The “no-fly” list and other well maintained lists should be tied to all gun background checks – if they aren’t already.
  • The gun sale cannot be stopped in some cases where the persons rights are still intact, but it can be suspended briefly. During the suspension law enforcement then contacts the individual and explains clearly to them they are deemed a threat. This could divert some from a rash act, but probably not someone like Omar Mateen. At a minimum though, this interview would allow law enforcement to decide whether to implement constant surveillance in case the person is not to be diverted. If Mateen had been under surveillance, then the attack in Orlando might have been stopped before it started. Yeah, this is more work – but many have died for our Constitution so buck up.
  • It should also be illegal for any non-citizen to purchase any gun until they have been in the US 12 months and they have legal documents. This is just common sense. If caught with a gun illegally they are immediately deported. This would basically put a ban on gun purchases to all those who have crossed our borders in the last year under Obama’s foolish actions.

These three basic things could make a huge difference. Much more of a difference than banning gun sales to people who have not yet been proven guilty of any crimes.

We should not let terrorists or deluded political “elites” rip up our constitution, and we must think of ways to make another Orlando massacre very difficult to pull off. In my humble opinion these steps would do that.

Update: Idea number 4 – allow clubs to hire people with military or police experience (and I would restrict this to only former military and police given their training) to be armed security for large clubs, etc.  A lone wolf will not take on an armed fortress.

Update 2: More details on the gun store that informed the FBI of Mateen’s interest in body armor – and a possible co-conspirator (or more likely handler)

You heard right. When denied the purchase of body armor, “Lone Wolf” Omar Mateen got on the phone, had a conversation in a foreign language and then started asking about purchasing large quantities of ammunition.

He had a handler for sure. When the body armor was not available he asked for guidance on what to do.  He was directed to ask for “bulk ammo”.

Obama Administration Erased Terrorist “Dots”

Most people probably believe that to perform national security against terrorist attacks on US soil, it would entail some form of “connecting the dots”. Another way of saying this is: one would need to pull together independent pieces of information to build a picture that could be a warning of a threat that could be acted upon to save lives.

But first you have to have the dots that make up the picture of the threat. Finding the right dots to identify a threat is hard enough.  It is like looking for a light gray dot in a sea of slightly gray dots. And the the picture takes time to put together, so the dots don’t connect all at once but over time.

You would think that.

But the Obama administration tends to fly in the face of common sense, and it spent a lot of its energy erasing dots before they could be connected. From Feb of this year:

Amid the chaos of the 2009 holiday travel season, jihadists planned to slaughter 290 innocent travelers on a Christmas Day flight from the Netherlands to Detroit, Michigan. Twenty-three-year old Nigerian Muslim Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab intended to detonate Northwest Airlines Flight 253, but the explosives in his underwear malfunctioned and brave passengers subdued him until he could be arrested. The graphic and traumatic defeat they planned for the United States failed, that time.

Following the attempted attack, President Obama threw the intelligence community under the bus for its failure to “connect the dots.” He said, “this was not a failure to collect intelligence, it was a failure to integrate and understand the intelligence that we already had.”

President Obama is a slick deflector of responsibility, because at the time he was saying this his orders to erase “the dots” was being carried out:

Just before that Christmas Day attack, in early November 2009, I was ordered by my superiors at the Department of Homeland Security to delete or modify several hundred records of individuals tied to designated Islamist terror groups like Hamas from the important federal database, the Treasury Enforcement Communications System (TECS). These types of records are the basis for any ability to “connect dots.”  Every day, DHS Customs and Border Protection officers watch entering and exiting many individuals associated with known terrorist affiliations, then look for patterns. Enforcing a political scrubbing of records of Muslims greatly affected our ability to do that. Even worse, going forward, my colleagues and I were prohibited from entering pertinent information into the database.

Emphasis mine.

Now apparently this was all done based on the individual’s religion!

So let me get this straight. Donald Trump’s proposal to temporarily block immigration from certain hotbeds of Radical Islam (which is no different from banning immigration of Radical Koreans – from North Korea) is unethical and biased.

But Obama’s order to delete terror threat data based on religion is not biased?

Only in DC could this sound sane! Only in America would the news media be so clueless. Of course, a modern news media career relies on access to people in power. So the people in power ensure the media is clueless – or buys their “dots” only from official channels so as ensure the brain-washed masses don’t connect dots on their own.

On a separate note: How about we ban gun sales to Muslims – wouldn’t that make a few liberal heads implode? How could Hillary talk herself out of that logic-bomb?

Hillary’s State Department Might Have Avoided Pulse Killings

Published by under All General Discussions

What if?

That is a really dangerous – and many times pointless – question. The answers can range from disturbing to silly.

What if Hitler had been assassinated in the July 1944 attempt on his life at his Wolf’s Lair? How many people would have lived instead of dying in the bloody invasion of Fortress Europe?

What if President Lincoln’s assassin had missed and Lincoln had never died?

What if the Titanic had missed that lone iceberg?

What if Bill Clinton was a good and faithful husband?

It is a question that sometimes needs to be asked. And this seems to be one of those times.

What if Hillary Clinton and her State Department HAD NOT blocked a Homeland Security inquiry into Omar Mateen’s mosque, and instead had disrupted the flow of events leading to the bloody massacre at the Pulse?

Hillary Clinton’s State Dept. shut down an investigation into the mosque Orlando killer Omar Mir Siddique Mateen attended because it “unfairly singled out Muslims.”

The Fort Pierce Islamic Center, where Mateen worshipped several times a week, was under investigation by both the FBI and DHS as early as 2011 for ties to a worldwide Islamic movement known as Tablighi Jamaal which was linked to several terrorist organizations.

But the investigation was shut down under pressure from the Clinton-ran State Dept. and DHS’s Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Office out of fear of offending Muslims, according to recently retired DHS agent Philip Haney.

Un – be – lievable. [emphasis in original]

Let me get this straight. We may offend some Muslims, so we instead clear a path for a national disaster to take place? An epic bloodbath of innocent people out for a night of fun? This is leadership?

Is this Beirut? Is this Jerusalem? Is this Afghanistan?

When the police pull over a drunk driver, should they be worried that they may “offend” the driver? Or should they protect all the other innocent people on our public roads?

How is this even a question? Who was so Politically Correct they locked down all their IQ points to come up with this nonsense?

The world of Obama/Clinton has now brutally exposed itself to America. But don’t expect the dullards in the Political Industrial Complex to wake up and smell the carnage.  The real world is some theoretical, other-dimension to the political elites.

    synonyms: talk nonsense, talk rubbish, babble, ramble, gibber, blather, prattle, gabble, waffle

    “you always drivel on

President Obama has just demonstrated what a confused and unprepared leader he remains – even after 7 years trying to lead this great nation. You have to be completely out to lunch to make a statement like this after the worse massacre of innocent life in US history:

So determined is the president to avoid the subject of Islamist, ISIS-inspired or ISIS-directed terrorism that he concluded his remarks with an astonishing insistence that “we need the strength and courage to change” our attitudes toward the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community.

That’s just disgusting. There’s no other word for it.

America’s national attitude toward LGBT people didn’t shoot up the Pulse nightclub.

If Obama wanted to strengthen Donald Trump’s anti-terrorist platform and sink former Secretary of State Clinton’s chance at election – he sure did it today. He has riddled this country with undocumented illegal aliens, any one of which could coordinate other attacks with people like Omar Mateen (an anchor baby – which is another perk this nation needs to roll back). We have lost control of our borders and now we sit and wait to see who is and is not going to kill us.

Brilliant.

The only way to “change” America’s current path towards gays, lesbians, etc would be to reverse gears 180 degrees and embrace Islamic law, followed by state-sponsored progroms to eradicate the individuals who are insulting Islamo Fascists. Is that what Obama means?

Or is this more of “blame the victim”?? Who knows what this latest drivel was meant to convey – outside his legendary incompetence.

Update: Before Obama’s drivel even hit the floor is nuanced stance just got completely upended:

Orlando Jihadist Omar Matten was radicalized by New Back Panther Party Member, Marcus Dwayne Robertson (below left), who is a known advocate of radical Islam in Florida and was formerly famous for being a bodyguard for the Blind Sheik.

The gunman who murdered at least 50 people in a Florida nightclub early Sunday morning was a follower of a controversial gang leader-turned-bank robber who was released from prison last year despite warnings from prosecutors that he would recruit people to carry out violent acts, sources told FoxNews.com.

More here:

US District Judge Greg Presnell, a Clinton appointee, ignored warnings from the government lawyers that Robertson was incredibly good at recruiting other people to do things and carry out acts that he didn’t participate in.

Sunday morning in Orlando probably was one of those.

Double whammy.  Can’t wait to see Obama/Clinton try and explain this away.

Trump Increases(??) Hispanic Support

Update: Some good observations from Sean Trende, with AllahPundit lamenting stubborn Trump voters end update

What if America’s Political Industrial Complex (PIC) was so isolated, so insulated, so distant from  “everyday America” that they had no clue how misguided and off track they are? What if the bubble that surrounds them and blocks their view of Main Street has become so dense that the denizens of the PIC are completely blind to what is happening outside their bubble?

If this was the case, and a broad voter backlash was rising up in the populace representing the right-to-center swath of America, you would see reports like this:

It is evident that Donald Trump has rewritten the rules of political campaigning, leaving the so- called experts, analysts, journalists and even the GOP itself puzzled by the power and effectiveness of his approach.

Latino advocacy groups and some celebrities have launched powerful videos, protests and campaigns against Trump. Recognized conservative voices like Marco Rubio, Susana Martinez, the Bush family, and even Pope Francis himself have made their discontent clear with the candidate, but could it be possible he is actually gaining support among Hispanics?

Well, before we get to the juicy stuff lets recall why there is an impression Trump is being rejected by America’s Hispanics.  This theory is all based on political theater and something called “astroturfing”:

In political science, it is defined as the process of seeking electoral victory or legislative relief for grievances by helping political actors find and mobilize a sympathetic public, and is designed to create the image of public consensus where there is none.[1][2] Astroturfing is the use of fake grassroots efforts that primarily focus on influencing public opinion and typically are funded by corporations and governmental entities to form opinions.

Emphasis mine.  By definition the political act of astroturing is to create a false impression in the public’s (or PIC’s) mind. From the theory of astroturfing, we go to the facts of astroturfing:

False flag operations have long been common in politics, but these riots are poisonous to the electorate, intentionally designed to turn violent and stifle free speech.

This free speech-busting goon squad operation is directed by supporters of Hillary Clinton. It is paid for mostly by George Soros and MoveOn.org and pushed by David Brock at Media Matters for America.

A march and demonstration against Trump at Trump Tower essentially fizzled Saturday when only 500 “protesters” of the promised 5000 showed up. Infiltrating the crowd, I learned most were from MoveOn or the Occupy movement. Soap was definitely in short supply in this crowd. Several admitted answering a Craig’s list ad paying $16.00 an hour for protesters.

OK, with the full context of what has been going on this primary season, let’s get back to reality and whether Trump is really hemorrhaging Hispanic support:

Clearly, conventional political research is in question, but what if big data analysis reveals Trump’s rise is real, based on a sample size of over 1 million Hispanics?

Based on big data analysis over the last 30 days as of June 1st, Trump reports 37 percent of Hispanic positive sentiment versus 41 percent for Clinton.

Woah!

Hold up here! Trump is basically tied with Clinton on Hispanic support?

The hilarity of all this is that what we probably have here is the boomerang effect. The Political Industrial Complex astroturfing  Trump with regards to Hispanics has fooled themselves into this mindset!

I mean, if the PIC (which encompasses all the career politicians, their handlers and consultants, their crony donors and lobbyists, and the ever pliant “news”media) want to pretend Donald Trump is not going to do well with Hispanics – fine with me!

They can delude themselves all they want. It will be all the more sweet when Trump wins come November and they realize the PIC is going to get a major overhaul – thanks to some very frustrated and fed up voters.

Even When She Is Winning, Hillary Is Losing

So we have finally ended the primary season for 2016 – thank goodness! We can all go back to our daily lives now at least until the conventions, maybe even until November rolls around.

So what have we learned from the primary season?  Given Trump’s ‘unexpected’ rise to become the GOP’s presumptive presidential candidate, we can safely assume this is an anti-establishment election.  Plus, with the defections of so many ‘conservative’ elites from the GOP tent because of Trump, it is clear the ‘establishment’ is ignorant of the low esteem the voters hold them in. Or they are perfect examples of those “nose-in-the-air” elites who created the voter backlash that Trump embodies (and to some extent Sanders).

So, is this a close race between the establishment elites represented by ” the Queen of the Establishment” Hillary Clinton, and the fed-up voters represented by the trash talking Donald?

I don’t think so.  The energy has been on the anti-elite side from day one. It has only continued to tip towards them as we end the primary phase of this election cycle.

I present two data points to support my claim.  Data Point 1 – Trump’s historic voter turnout and vote total:

Trump received 13,406,108 votes to date in the elections according to www.thegreenpapers.com.

As a result Trump has more votes than any candidate in Republican history.

Trump shattered the previous record by 1.4 million votes — and that was with 17 candidates in the race

The Republican Party also set a party record this year in pre-convention state election turnout with over 28 million votes to date, which is 139% of the record high voter turnout in 2008. This increase in votes can be attributed to Donald Trump.

Clearly Trump had some serious momentum even to the end, as his voters kept turning out well after he locked up the GOP nomination.

So how is Hillary doing? She struggled down to the wire to vanquish Sanders in an intense battle, so you would think she too is seeing serious momentum.

You would think, Data Point 2:

Hillary Clinton’s base of support appears to have hit its high watermark eight years ago.

With 94.4% of precincts reporting, Clinton won 1,841,285 votes in California on Tuesday, compared to Bernie Sanders’s 1,416,742, Politico reports.

That’s nearly a 30% drop in total support from 2008

Is Media Crafting An Excuse For Hillary Losses Today?

Yesterday the political news media pulled the wind out of the last primaries of the season, including in California. By prematurely claiming Clinton had enough delegates, the news media just told Hillary supporters in these last primaries to “stay home”.

Why do this?

Bernie may not be able to win the nomination outright, but the last thing Clinton needs is to limp over the finish line with a string of losses in the final states, particularly the huge contest in California. And the thinner her margin of victory in the pledged delegate count, the fewer superdelegates it would take to swing things at the convention if they decide to change sides after some startling FBI news. The last polls in California showed the Democrats in a neck and neck, inside the margin of error battle. Bernie is still out there whipping his supporters into a frenzy over the rigged primary and pushing for every last vote. If Hillary’s supporters are complacent with the AP news that their gal has already won the race, it wouldn’t take too many of them staying home to tip it in Bernie’s favor.

I have a theory – it was clear Hillary was going to lose anyway. So how can the news media and democrats “frame” this loss as no big deal?

By giving a whole different reason for her abysmal showing.  Now, if Bernie wins, team Clinton can point to the allies in the media and blame them for her poor showing.

Politics is now all theater – theater of the absurd! And Sanders supporters are fed up:

Supporters of Bernie Sanders expressed outrage in the hours leading up to Tuesday’s primary elections, upset that The Associated Press and several television networks had already declared rival Hillary Clinton the party’s presumptive nominee.

Update: Everyone sees this news media move for what it is – the Political Industrial Complex wants Clinton over Sanders. Even the liberals get it now:

This is the perfect symbolic ending to the Democratic Party primary: The nomination is consecrated by a media organization, on a day when nobody voted, based on secret discussions with anonymous establishment insiders and donors whose identities the media organization — incredibly — conceals. The decisive edifice of superdelegates is itself anti-democratic and inherently corrupt: designed to prevent actual voters from making choices that the party establishment dislikes. But for a party run by insiders and funded by corporate interests, it’s only fitting that its nomination process ends with such an ignominious, awkward, and undemocratic sputter.

Could not have said it better myself

Bursting The Politically Correct BS!

Published by under All General Discussions

You know what Main Street America probably hates most about the Political Industrial Complex in America?

Political Correctness.

That nagging, overly sensitive, “can’t call BS on government BS”, muzzling of legitimate thoughts, concerns and OBJECTIONS!

Political Correctness is the shield the denizens of the Political Industrial Complex use to deflect  well-earned blow back by the voters.  Just look at how Donald Trump  this week has offended just about every corner of the Political Industrial Complex (or PIC, which encompasses the career politicians, their staff, the sea of paid consultants and advisors who manage their public image, crony donors and lobbyists and the pliant news media).

It is downright laughable at the reactions! For example:

You know you’re in trouble when you’re being lectured on sensitivity by Newt Gingrich. The former House speaker, a frequent Trump defender, emailed The Post’s Dan Balz to say that Trump’s claim that a federal judge had a conflict of interest because the Indiana-born jurist is “Mexican” was “completely unacceptable.” (He softened his criticism of Trump on Monday.)

Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) concurred that Trump’s attack on the judge and his claim that a Muslim on the bench also couldn’t judge him fairly was “absolutely unacceptable.”

Really? You cannot have a concern that someone’s background has tainted their objectivity? What is more human than having personal biases based on heritage, family or religion? This is WHY we have counter balances and cross checks built into government. Everyone has some biases – doh!

This is good reporting in my opinion:

To defend real estate mogul Donald Trump‘s claim that a federal judge is biased against him because of his “Mexican heritage,” his campaign spokeswoman argued on Monday that it also would be acceptable to accuse a female judge of bias on the basis of gender.

“Well, it would depend on her past and decisions she made as a judge,” Trump’s national spokeswoman Katrina Pierson said.

Noting that Trump’s sister is also a federal judge, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer asked Pierson if it would be “awful” to accuse her of bias “in regard to some case because she’s a woman.”

But Pierson would not rule it out, adding that “there is no question that there are activist judges in this country.”

“CNN gives a platform to Black Lives Matter, and that entire premise is injustice in the system due to race,” she said.

So Trump has doubled down and stated people of Mexican heritage could be biased.  People of the Muslim religion could be biased.  Women could be biased.

Where is the shock factor here? Most of the outrage is about someone finally telling the PC crowd they are so full of BS!

What Trump is doing is brilliant. He has all these clowns jumping up and down proving his point – as far as the PIC is concerned no one dares challenge the elites! No one.

Especially uppity voters who support a candidate like Donald Trump.

Has there ever been a better case for Trump than how he plays the PIC? He is nuking Political Correctness so Main Street can finally air their grievances.

The Left Continues To Push Trump Towards An Election Win

For people who are supposed to be the “intellectually elite” over the rest of us average Americans, the left side of the Political Industrial Complex (PIC) seems to throttled at full “self-destruct” this year.

The PIC is that isolated and insulated element of American society that includes the career politicians, their extensive staff, their sea of paid political consultants, the lobbyists and crony donors, and of course the pliant news media who live off the PIC’s orchestrated leaks/propaganda. This extensive element of American society lives and works in a different world than the rest of us. The PIC love to talk about their roots on Main Street, or their latest discussion they had with a denizen of that place far, far away. But they do not understand average day Americans.  They simply exploit us.

This year the election is a battle between the PIC (Hillary) and Main Street (Trump). While Trump himself lives a rarefied life in Trump Towers, he speaks to the issues and concerns of Main Street.

For example, Obama’s rampant wave of illegal immigrants which most average Americans oppose because illegal immigrants consume limited government resources and cheap entry-level jobs. Heck, most don’t pay their taxes or welfare share.

Hillary in 2016 is for more of the same – much, much more:

Clinton has pledged to enact amnesty within her first 100 days in office. As NBC recently reported: “If elected, the former secretary of state has promised to build on President Obama’s executive actions and introduce comprehensive immigration reform during her first 100 days in office.”

Clinton’s website has explained that by “comprehensive immigration reform,” Clinton means full citizenship for illegal immigrants, which would give them welfare access, voting privileges, and the ability to bring over their family members through chain migration.

We really need to stop the flow and absorb or deal with the immigrants who came in under Obama. I doubt there will be mass deportations, but there can be drastic changes.  There can be the rounding up violent criminals and – after some time in US prison – terminal deportation. Violence will be met with extreme justice.

There can be fines and back taxes paid if illegals wish to stay, or else they are free to leave.  I pay my taxes, and I have paid penalties for back taxes. If there is going to be a tax amnesty – it should go to US citizens first.

Hillary’s pandering to non-voters and their minority of voting allies will backfire this election cycle. This election is about average Americans and what they deserve.

And now the “Greens” have proposed another brilliantly stupid idea:

There is another alternative — which I’ll call Plan A — that would avoid the considerable litigation risks of the Clean Power Plan and achieve more quickly and with greater certainty a reduction in emissions at least equal to those of the Clean Power initiative. Under Plan A, the federal government would buy or, if necessary, seize under eminent domain all existing U.S. coal plants and close them over 10 years.

Emphasis from the linked commentary.

When the federal government tries to seize privately or state owned assets, it is time to dismantle said federal government. How putting more Americans out of work is going to build America’s future is beyond me.  I truly hope the Democrats run on this plank in their platform.

The overreach and arrogance of the left since Obama took office is fueling Trump’s Presidential campaign. He is a PIC outsider, one rich enough to fight off the leeches who make up the PIC and feed off the taxes (therefore the sweat, toil and sacrifices) of Main Street USA. If this continues, Trump will win in a landslide – which will be a mandate to begin to role back government.
