Extemporaneous Events in Life

Extemporaneous events in life are those impromptu, improvised, done, performed events that we let go, albeit, without preparation. Seeing how the usage came into being from Latin — ex tempore (out of time) joined the English language sometime during the mid 17th century.

As for me the clearest understanding of the word is hillary-trueself1also in the definition. Key to understanding extemporaneous would be to think of having no, as in zero, preparation time for a speech, campaign stop or a ceremonious occasion; however listed in the definition the dregs I call them is, made for the occasion, as a shelter.

Pursuant to Hillary Rodham Clinton’s untimed physical pneumonic illness it is unfortunate for her insofar as there has been much newer and loftier news about her emailing expertise and who may have been involved.

It is right here and right now that I make my claim — If there is anyone left in the world that does not think that this woman was given just enough rope to the resident’s of the White House to hang herself or better still, don’t believe in the person who says, “I’ve got your back.”

However, in H.R.C.’s case more and more information is being disclosed than even tmpZWr3oc-mdly-photoPresident Barack Hussein Obama wants or cares to deal with. The emailesqe black hole is broadening now that former secretary of state and former Chairman or the Joint Chiefs of Staff is beginning to retort some of Clinton’s information.

“I would rather not have to vote for her, although she is a friend I respect,” he writes in the email dated July 26, 2014. “A 70-year-old person with a long track record, unbridled ambition, greedy, not transformational, with a husband still dicking bimbos at home (according to the NYP).”

Former President Clinton has been dogged by allegations of adultery for years, and his affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky culminated in impeachment proceedings.

It’s the latest controversial email stemming from the leak — other conversations show Powell sharing concerns about Clinton’s health with Leeds.

Powell could not be reached to comment on the specific email, but spokeswoman Peggy Cifrino told The Washington Post Wednesday that “the general has been hacked and that these are his emails.”

1500px-DesertStormMap_v2_svgAnd as far as Mrs. Clinton’s medical health recovery we still must deal with this news: Hillary Clinton allowed her staff to mistakenly think that she had a pulled muscle rather than tell them she had a blood clot in 1998.

The Democratic Presidential candidate, who was First Lady at the time, did not correct White House staffers when they assumed the problem with her right leg was due to over exercising.

According to Clinton’s doctor at the time, Connie Mariano, ‘very few’ people knew the truth and her boss refused to take time of the campaign trail for her husband’s re-election.

Instead, a nurse came with her to check on her condition and administer drugs if needed but nobody outside of her Secret Service detail was told who she was.

The incident shows that Clinton’s habit of choosing secrecy over coming clean has a long history.  Hillary clint

It would not be until 2003, five years after the blood clot and two years after her husband left office, that Clinton would even disclose it had happened in a single paragraph in her memoir, according to The Daily Mail.uk.com.

It looks very much as though Clinton’s trustworthy rating by the public is indeed not unfair. She avoids the truth and lies for a living yet she has extemporaneous matters to deal with. Unfortunate.

What is Representative-Democracy?

What is Representative-Democracy?

attorney'sSimply put, a representative democracy is a system of government in which all eligible citizens vote on representatives to pass laws for them. A perfect example is the U.S., where we elect a president and members of the Congress. We also elect local and state officials. All of these elected officials supposedly listen to the populace and do what’s best for the nation, state or jurisdiction as a whole.

For a representative democracy to work, there are several conditions that have to be met. First, there has to be an opportunity for genuine competition in the selection of leadership (if people think that elections are rigged, or predetermined, there can be no meaningfully honest competition).

Second, there has to be free communication, both among the people and in the press. Third, voters have to believe that a meaningful choice exists between candidates and that differences in policy are honestly reflected in each. The degree to which these three factors are present goes a long way to determining the effectiveness of a representative democracy.

We need to be essential to this definition. Therefore, let’s have a solid look at it: First, there has to be an opportunity for genuine competition in the selection of leadership. The notion as far as I am concerned holds true. Even though the candidates are not the ones we may have wanted, nonetheless, the GOP started with 19 and the Dems although very satisfied with one, members of that party made it exceptional to watch the primary process in action.

Now for the real examination of First condition. Are we all supposed to sit and think that this forthcoming election may or may not be rigged or predetermined?

It is so very important to recall or remember activities since 2012 when Florida, Oregon, Minnesota and several other states were trying to update their own states voters rolls when the federal government along with its watchdog agency, the Justice department decided to intervene and threatened to sue the individual states.

06comeytranscript-master768Furthermore having individuals investigated by the FBI with the House Oversight Committee interviewing as well — and knowing the misrepresentations told to the American people vis-a-vis video tapes, failing health, dodging bullets and the like cannot be viewed as true and/or fair.

Ask yourselves now has there been fair communication between the people and the press. No. For our third example, you be the judge.

Winston Churchill once said democracy ‘is the worst form of government in the world, except all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.’

Many human societies have practiced some form of democracy over the millennia, the most important (for the American version, at any rate) example originated in ancient Greece. The world’s first working democracy, as far as we can tell, was established by Cleisthenes in the Greek city-state of Athens, around 508 BCE.

Obama Spends Another $10 Mil to Register New Immigrant Voters

Obama Spends Another $10 Mil to Register New Immigrant Voters

Uncle SamThe possibility of a rigged election has been much in the news lately. What the media haven’t reported as eagerly is the Obama administration’s persistent efforts, using your tax dollars, to corruptly influence the election.

Judicial Watch’s Corruption Chronicles blog has the story. 

Months after the Obama administration spent $19 million to register new immigrant voters that will likely support Democrats in November, it’s dedicating an additional $10 million in a final push as the presidential election approaches. The money is distributed by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the Homeland Security agency that oversees lawful immigration, to organizations that help enhance pathways to naturalization by offering immigrants free citizenship instruction, English, U.S. history and civics courses. Officially, they’re known as “citizenship integration grants.”

Since 2009 USCIS has doled out $63 million in these grants to prepare more than 156,000 resident immigrants in dozens of states for U.S. citizenship, according to the agency’s figures. Besides the free classes, Uncle Sam also offers immigrants free “naturalization legal services,” the latest USCIS grant announcement states. “Recipient organizations serve both traditional immigrant destinations and new immigrant getaway cities in 21 states,” the USCIS document reads.

It is hoped that every reader here now and prospective readers to come, we hope that by given the descriptions in the above paragraphs these are identified as special interest groups that will lobby the government representatives and literally pay whomever (yes, Obama counts). So wonder if you will about how someone who has a pre-election net worth of 100,000 then when they leave office, in most cases their net worth is normal $8 to 10 million dollars.

To carry out this important mission Obama created a special Task Force on New Americans chaired by his Domestic Policy Director, Cecilia Muñoz, the former vice president of the powerful open borders group National Council of La Raza (NCLR).

HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON

What can a civil, morals driven person like me to say and/or write about this tramp goddess? Oh, she’s just hacking them out!! And now it is pneumonia! Here we go again! I writing we have explained to Mrs. Clinton that once one lie is told, the liar is going to come up with an additional 25 or more lies just to cover the one she just told. This just so happens to be the case pursuant to this past weekend’s celebratory events that lousy and insufficient data was told to the world.

kgucxcnt_biggerA big hat tip to Jennifer Griffin at Fox news.com at the Pentagon in Washington D.C. Jennifer noticed an unusual splice in reporting when she read yesterday’s article that appeared on CNN.com. But not me! The entire cover-up truth about Clinton’s prolonged coughing bout stated that Clinton’s evaluation of pneumonia was diagnosed on Sunday morning September 11, 2016, when she had felt “overheated” then staggered out of the facility to her black anything but a car to go to Chelsea’s apartment for about two hours when160911123833-hillary-clinton-leaves-9-11-event-early-rs-00005305-large-169 she came out on return and gladly espoused that she was feeling “great!”
However, someone of the hundreds of personnel she has working for her should have said something, insofar as it was the first issue I went looking for today. Here it is from my Hillary file:

“Secretary Clinton has been experiencing a cough related to allergies. On Friday, during follow-up evaluation of her prolonged cough, she was diagnosed with pneumonia. She was put on antibiotics, and advised to rest and modify her schedule. While at this morning’s event, she became overheated and dehydrated. I have just examined her and she is now rehydrated and recovering nicely,” said Clinton’s physician, Dr. Lisa Bardack, in a written statement on Sunday evening.(/blockquote)
Why else would Hillary Clinton personally send out lies about Benghazi within hours, and then keep on pushing these lies until the truth could no longer be ignored? The truth about an attack by an al Qaeda group that killed our ambassador and three other brave Americans in the days before Obama’s reelection would not only have put Obama at risk of losing, but also would have potentially dashed the hopes of his successor-in-waiting, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Founding Fathers Quotes Friday

Founding Fathers Quotes Friday

DeclarIndep180x180Being a bit on the on the tawdry side today, especially insofar as how the New Mainstream Media has been reporting all of, or most of the news lately, especially about our wannabe president who is off again – somewhere.

Therefore today after critical reflection I have decided to write on some issues that were once the founding backbone of this nation that seems now to be someone’s best or last joke spoke at the party.

There appears to be some deep level misunderstanding going on within the nation these days and contrary to some folks in the news I really must disagree with them. I make mention of Ms. Melissa Francis who has a variety of positions at Fox News.com. During her particular show “Outnumbered” today she made a reference as to how she did not think that the nation was changing.

Well after years of writing for this site I am sure that those readers who are acquainted with my writing style could readily feel how my blood pressure was rising with Melissa’s every word.

In the myriad of ways our nation has changed can easily be detected in the amount ofalex-hamilton-1 political correctness we must spill on a daily basis. However, more than spewing political correctness all day long, I for one, believe that there are two, maybe three issues that draw my concern more.

One of these issues is how distorted our sense of morality has become. Interestingly enough, through a bit of research, there does to me exude the coexistence between morality and religion.

The American war is over, but this far from being the case with the American revolution. On the contrary, nothing but the first act of the drama is closed. It remains yet to establish and perfect our new forms of government, and to prepare the principles, morals, and manners of our citizens for these forms of government after they are established and brought to perfection.— Benjamin Rush letter to Price — 1786

In such a performance you may lay the foundation of national happiness only in religion, not by leaving it doubtful “whether morals can exist without it,” but by asserting that without religion morals are the effects of causes as purely physical as pleasant breezes and fruitful seasons.Benjamin Rush, in letter to John Adams 1811

us constitution a readerBenjamin Rush has for a considerable period been one of my favorite Founding Fathers. Actually, he was a practicing physician (doctor) when he wasn’t trying to mold his views on to other people. Nonetheless, it is through his persistence on matters of extreme importance that lure me every time.

From the two quotes above it is easy to see how committed he is to principals, morals, and manners as well as to religion and how it seems that morality comes from there originally. What does he say about education?

[T]he only foundation for a useful education in a republic is to be laid in religion. Without this, there can be no virtue, and without virtue, there can be no liberty, and liberty is the object and life of all republican governments. Benjamin Rush, On the Mode of Education Proper in a Republic — 1806

What most Americans or all people do not know is the importance of religion, education, and morals, principals, and manners tie together.

Most people do not know that eight out of nine of the first universities established in the USA all had a religious affiliation with which they chose bragging rights. Let’s for the sake of convenience look at the oldest schools, ironically located in The Ivy League: Let’s start with Columbia, Church of England, while a Congregational minister from Columbia, Connecticut was behind Dartmouth College. Now for America’s number one 1636 institution of higher learning describes itself as nonconforming Protestants, Puritans, Separatists, Independents, English religious groups coming out of the English Civil War, and other English dissenters not satisfied with the degree to which the Church of England had been reformed came Harvard.

Benjamin Franklin, Penn’s founder, advocated an educational program that focused ascolonial times much on practical education for commerce and public service as on the classics and theology. The university coat of arms features a dolphin on the red chief, adopted directly from the Franklin family’s own coat of arms.

In 1740, a group of Philadelphians joined together to erect a great preaching hall for the traveling evangelist George Whitefield, who toured the American colonies delivering open air sermons. The building was designed and built by Edmund Woolley and was the largest building in the city at the time, drawing thousands of people the first time it was preached in. It was initially planned to serve as a charity school as well; however, a lack of funds forced plans for the chapel and school to be suspended. According to Franklin’s autobiography, it was in 1743 when he first had the idea to establish an academy, “thinking the Rev. Richard Peters a fit person to superintend such an institution.” arden B

An example of rotten journalism

CcmKujIWEAAScEQPlease let’s make no mistake about what was said. This morning of September 8, 2016 most newscasters that I watch — selectively and of my own cognition — did not make too much of an uproar over Donald Trump’s statement during last night’s joint albeit, not together or on the same stage, sponsored by NBC and the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of American forum.

Trump’s statement:”Saying America’s generals have been “reduced to rubble” under Obama.” It is severely bad journalism to report any other meaning than what the statement says. If one thinks about a building being “reduced to rubble” is it not drawing an image of as the building falls to the ground or the sound it makes? When I think of reduced to rubble I think of the World Trade Center and older Las Vegas.

For those who have been too busy or unconcerned, they should read the List Of Military Elite Purged And Fired Under Obama  as succinctly compiled by General Paul Vallely.

Since Barack Obama has been in the White House, high-ranking military officers have been removed from their positions at a rate that is absolutely unprecedented. Things have gotten so bad that a number of retired generals are publicly speaking out about the ‘purge’ of the U.S. military that they believe is taking place. As you will see below, dozens of highly decorated military leaders have been dismissed from their positions over the past few years.

So why is this happening? What is going on right now is absolutely crazy especially during a time of peace. Is there a deliberate attempt to reshape the military and remove those who don’t adhere to the proper ‘viewpoints’ ? Does someone out there feel a need to get officers that won’t cooperate out of the way?

Throughout world history, whatever comes next after a military purge is never good. If this continues, what is the U.S. military going to look like in a few years?

Retired Navy Captain Joseph John: I believe there are more than 137 officers who have been forced out or given bad evaluation reports so they will never make Flag (officer), because of their failure to comply to certain views.

A Pentagon official who asked to remain nameless because they were not authorized to speak on the matter said even young officers, down through the ranks have been told not to talk about Obama or the politics of the White House. They are purging everyone and if you want to keep your job just keep your mouth shut. Now this trend appears to be accelerating.

This News Absolutely Sickens Me… puke

This News Absolutely Sickens Me  puke  puke

obama-leather-jacketMonths after the Obama administration spent $19 million to register new immigrant voters that will likely support Democrats in November, Obama is dedicating an additional $10 million in a final push as the presidential election approaches.

The money is distributed by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the Homeland Security agency that oversees lawful immigration, to organizations that help enhance pathways to naturalization by offering immigrants free citizenship instruction, English, U.S. history and civics courses. Officially, they’re known as “citizenship integration grants.”

Besides the free classes, Uncle Sam also offers immigrants free “naturalization legal services,” the latest USCIS grant announcement states.

Is Obama Spending Tax Payer Money To Rig Election?

“Recipient organizations serve both traditional immigrant destinations and new immigrant getaway cities in 21 states,” the USCIS document reads.

The latest $10 million investment will prepare approximately 25,000 residents from more than 50 countries, according to the agency. More than a dozen states—including California, New York, Florida, Washington and Ohio—with large resident immigrant populations are being targeted as well as cities with huge immigrant populations such as Miami, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco and Washington D.C.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has been aggressive in promoting its citizen integration grant program this year, offering large sums to recruit new groups that can offer immigrants the services they need to become citizens.

Clearly, the ultimate goal is qualifying as many immigrants as possible to vote since they tend to cast ballots for Democrats. “We intend to award about $1 million to first-time recipients in the Citizenship and Integration Grant Program for the fiscal year 2016,” the agency’s grant announcement states.

This is part of a broader, government-wide initiative launched by the president to “strengthen federal immigrant and refugee integration infrastructure.” The mission is to facilitate life in the U.S. for immigrants and refugees by enhancing pathways to naturalization, building welcoming communities and providing “mobile immigration services in underserved communities.”

To carry out this important mission Obama created a special Task Force on New Americans chaired by his Domestic Policy Director, Cecilia Muñoz, the former vice president of the powerful open borders group National Council of La Raza (NCLR). Millions of taxpayer dollars have funded the task force’s various enterprises, including multilingual media campaigns promoting immigrant rights.

Practically every federal agency is participating in the effort by contributing resources and creating programs to help immigrants. We are under the impression that the federal government was not allowed to participate.

For example, the Department of Labor (DOL) is implementing “new workforce programs” for the “new Americans” and the Department of Education is promoting “funding opportunities” to assure that the immigrants “are provided the tools they need to succeed.” The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is collaborating with other agencies to release a career and credentialing toolkit on “immigrant-focused career-pathways programs.”

The Department of Justice (DOJ) and USCIS are making sure the new Americans have worker rights and protections and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) are launching a two-year pilot to assure that non-English speakers have “meaningful access to housing programs” subsidized by American taxpayers.

Greta Van Susteren abruptly leaves Fox News

10298882_850707911610737_4409057117008776885_n (1)

Greta van Susteren

I have no permanent or concrete leads as to what’s happening over at Fox News.com; consequently, all I do know is that several people are not making the money they’ve earned and there are several questions relating to sexual abuse charges that do, I believe, carry extraordinary merit.

Please don’t get me wrong here, I still am not a fan of the Clinton News Network (CNN) however, with the solid amount of excellence recently lost, I do believe there is a quantum problem at Fox News.com.

Longtime Fox News host Greta Van Susteren is leaving the channel after 14 years, Fox News announced on Tuesday.

Senior political analyst Brit Hume will take over for Van Susteren’s 7 p.m. show “On the Record” starting immediately, and running through the election. It isn’t clear what will happen to the timeslot after the election.

“We are grateful for Greta’s many contributions over the years and wish her continued success,” Fox co-presidents Jack Abernethy and Bill Shine said in a statement.

No reasons were given in the Fox News announcement for Van Susteren’s departure, and she did not immediately respond to a direct message seeking comment.

A source close to the situation said it was a financial disagreement that led to Van gretaSusteren’s departure, and Fox News’ Howie Kurtz reported Van Susteren tried to renegotiate her contract when Ailes left. Van Susteren, who had a clause in her contract that allowed her out if Ailes left, decided to leave last week when those negotiations “deadlocked.”

“On Thursday night, I made my decision and informed Fox News of my decision that I was leaving Fox News Channel per my contract,” Van Susteren wrote on her Facebook page Tuesday. “Fox has not felt like home to me for a few years and I took advantage of the clause in my contract which allows me to leave now. The clause had a time limitation, meaning I could not wait.”

In July, Van Susteren told The Daily Beast in a piece defending former Fox News Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes that she had a long-term contract but would be happy returning to teaching or law if she loses that contract.

“My contract is with the corporation,” she said at the time. “I’m not trying to get a new one.”

Hume is a Fox and ABC News veteran. He spent 10 years as anchor of “Special Report” and also served as Washington managing editor.

“I am happy to take on this assignment for the balance of this extraordinary election. My Fox News colleagues have set a high standard for political coverage which I’ll do my best to uphold. I’m honored to be asked,” Hume said in a statement.

Think about this little breach…

There is so much to write about these days — inasmuch as one considers the warring factions within just about every nation, the refugee and asylum-seekers primarily coming out of the Middle East, however; what clearly has my attention these days is a number of earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, I guess I call it the severely extreme planet iUS-Constitution-Burning-300x150n orbit.

Yet today doing so much research for the next best-seller I hope to have which focuses on people of unethical morals, values, and ethics. Today reading I happened upon a Report made by the House Committee on Government Ethics and Reform whereby it certainly lists and describes the rule of law.

8 U.S.C.A. § 707(a) provides:

‘No person, except as hereinafter provided in this chapter, shall be naturalized unless such petitioner, (1) immediately preceding the date of filing petition for naturalization has resided continuously within the United States for at least five years and within the State in which the petitioner resided at the time of filing the petition for at least six months, (2) has resided continuously within the United States from the date of the petition up to the time of admission to citizenship, and (3) during all the periods referred to in this subsection has been and still is a person of good moral character, attached to the principles of the Constitution of the United States, and well disposed to the good order and happiness of the United States.’

 

8 U.S.C.A. § 707(a) is now covered by 8 USCS § 1427(a) through (c). Of note, the language, especially, pertaining to moral character remains, in the present statute, exactly as written in the older Statute.

How far we have come. A court of law may forbid citizenship to a person who lies to a federal officer on the ground our Country does not deem such a person worthy of our Country’s grace, for that person is, both by law and by nature, an immoral person.

Yet, this Country now raises the specter of nominating, to the highest Office in the Land, an incorrigible liar—a person who lied to FBI. She then unabashedly compounds the lies told to the FBI by telling the American people she never lied to the FBI.

We have in Hillary Rodham Clinton a person capable of turning veritable lies into inviolate truths and when pressed, will claim she simply made a “mistake.”

Those“mistakes”translate into devastation and horror. Those “mistakes” have weakened this Country and its system of laws, led directly or indirectly to the deaths of thousands of Americans, allowed for the rise and strengthening of numerous radical Islamic groups, created political instability throughout the world, promoted civil unrest, but created hundreds of millions of dollars for the Clintons as they have placed, and will undoubtedly continue to place, our Country’s assets, its traditions, its values, it’s very Constitution and Sovereignty—all of it—on the auction block. Nothing is sacred or “off the table” for Bill and Hillary Clinton where their insatiable greed, lust for power, and capacity for unremorseful criminal misconduct are concerned. See the documentary, “Clinton Cash.”

Under present and past naturalization Statutes and under U.S. Court law decisions—decisions going back to the 19th Century—Hillary Rodham Clinton would have been denied citizenship given her penchant for lying to federal officials. Such a person is beyond redemption. No one ought to be surprised, then, at Hillary Clinton’s audacity, as a citizen of the United States, to claim the Office of U.S. Presidency for herself, as her God-given right—and as the God-given right of her offspring in years to come.

Is this the right thing to do?

1472743533042Georgetown University will give preference in admissions to the descendants of slaves owned by the Maryland Jesuits as part of its effort to atone for profiting from the sale of enslaved people, the president of the prominent Jesuit university in Washington announced Thursday.

The announcement from President John DeGioia came as Georgetown released a report calling on its leaders to offer a formal apology for the university’s participation in the slave trade.

In 1838, two priests who served as president of the university orchestrated the sale of 272 men, women, and children for $115,000, or roughly $3.3 million in today’s dollars, to pay off debts at the school. The slaves were sent from Jesuit plantations in Maryland to Louisiana, “where they labored under dreadful conditions,” and families were broken up, according to the report.

“We will give descendants the same consideration we give members of the Georgetown community in the admissions process,” he wrote in a letter to the university community.

Respectfully submitted one wonders if this is not some means of discriminatory tactics utilized by Georgetown University. This is certainly not the only advantage that is granted to black students.

In addition to the apology, the report outlined several other steps.

The university had already committed to renaming two buildings that had been named for the priests who orchestrated the sale.

On Thursday, DiGioia announced that those buildings will be named after Isaac, the enslaved man whose name is the first mentioned in documents of the sale, and Anne Marie Becraft, a free African-American woman who founded a school for black girls in the Georgetown neighborhood in 1827.

Georgetown also will create a memorial to the slaves whose sale benefited the university, and it will establish an Institute for the Study of Slavery and its Legacies to support continued research into the history of slavery and engagement with descendants.

The news of the 1838 slave sale — first reported by The New York Times — shocked many at Georgetown, which had one of the first African-American university presidents in the U.S.

Patrick Francis Healy, Georgetown’s president from 1874 to 1882, was born a slave. His name graces Healy Hall – the school’s flagship building on the main campus. Born into slavery in Georgia in 1830, Healy’s father was an Irish-American plantation owner who fell in love with his African-American slave, Mary Eliza. The couple’s third son, Patrick — who passed as white — would go on to become the university’s president after the Civil War.

Someone, Anyone, Please Tell me What it is?

Someone, Anyone, Please Tell me What it is?

Seriously, Nah not too much seriously. However, what I would love to know from anyone who uses critical thought including reflection is what is so “desperate” so “not leadership abilities” or “wrong immigration policy” that the Republican nominee hopeful Donald Trump is taking a beating from something other than erstwhile media in the USA?

Clinton-Email-ScandalHillary Clinton on Wednesday hammered Donald Trump over his immigration rhetoric and criticized his leadership abilities, launching a barrage of attacks on the Republican presidential nominee as he traveled to Mexico — an invitation extended to both Trump and Clinton.

There is an expression for this type of cock-mouth rhetorical speaking: Ever hear of “Those who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.” In the previous paragraph, it is mentioned that the invitation was extended to both Trump and Clinton. He went — she did not.

Albeit, even more, interesting to me is the notion that Donald Trump is crisscrossing this nation sometimes as many as three states per day to hold news conferences, while his competitor-in-chief has literally been hiding for 291 days now. So why is Hillary Clinton hiding from the press that works for the mainstream media?

As for me, it’s as if it is just another election in typical USA style: One candidate clearly in trouble and saying anything now for recourse – then a good one; I really would love to write this one out for everyone reading but somehow I have got to sleep tonight.

What was President John F. Kennedy’s and President Barack Hussein Obama’s collective ordeal when they ran for office? Well for one it wasn’t like the radial Rebar that Obama is doing. Games up: They both came in as Junior Senators, still very wet behind the ears.CcmKujIWEAAScEQ

Okay, ok for all of those Hillary, guilty as hell in Benghazi, far worse guilty as the Secretary of State, lousy as a Senator, but by far she started off in the White House and I’d cringe whenever she was in public.

Now then Barack-Barry Hussein Obama has not done one legacy type action whilst serving as President. In less in case, he gets full unabated for his former US Attorney General Eric Holder indicted for contempt of Congress or perhaps for the wanton orders of Operation Fast & Furious. Now do you see Trump drawing Any line in the sand against anyone saying that if they pass over it well then they’ll just have to die?

Obama campaigns on immigration policy — yet without DACA and DAPA and the rest of his excessive orders nothing will happen. It is just going through the repeal process hopefully when Trump assumes office.

I have source documents for this so I’m talking trash here, nope, I am trying almost in vain that Trump will get his chance. So anyone allows me to know what is wrong with accepting your invitation to Mexico? Nothing whatsoever, it is polite. Now on for the other one, Hillary Rodham Clinton: Q: Do you think that your husband’s selling secrets to the Chinese will have some reflection on you? How is it now the DCCC have evidence of

Benghazi against you supplied to them by the Russians? Your endless tiring around like during the Benghazi hearings makes people think you’re a spritely bag of bones? Face it Hillary Rodham Clinton, it’s time to go down for all of those insider bets, Wall Street Bux, as well as your cattle futures contract where you invested $1000 got your word and sold for $400,000.00 dollars. Now then an easy one: Q: What law or apparition would give you the right to set up a private server in your home?
