Jerks! Republicans Not Voting For Trump

Food For Thought and this is Very Crucial:  The Supreme Court

If you are a Republican that won’t vote for Trump, think about this:

  • If Trump wins and he turns out to be a jerk as President, he’ll be tossed out in 4 years.  Do you think he’ll be as bad a President as Obama?  The guy has done pretty well managing a very large business so at least he’s got some credentials and is not a community organizer like Obama.
  • If Hillary wins, because ‘you’ didn’t feel dignified enough to vote for Trump, you, your children, and grand children will live under Hillary’s designated Supreme Court justices and their liberal rulings for many years to come (even if she’s a terrible President).

Even after Hillary is gone AND even if she is followed by a Republican President after 4 years that you do like, its most likely SHE will have CONTROL over future Supreme Court decisions.

Food For Thought and this is Very Crucial:  The Supreme Court

Some people have brought up the fact that they won’t vote for Trump for whatever reason. I just want to put something in perspective:

Justice Scalia’s seat is vacant, and Ginsberg is 82 years old, Kennedy is 79, Breyer is 77, Thomas is 67.

Nowadays, the data shows that the average age of a Supreme Court retirement or death occurs after 75.

These are 5 vacancies that will likely come up over the next 4-8 years. The next President will have the power to potentially create a 7-2 Supreme Court skewed in their ideology.

Think about that… 7-2 rulings…for LIBERAL policies!!

If the next President appoints the next 5 justices, it will guarantee control of the Supreme Court for an entire generation … and 7-2 decisions will hold up much more over time than any 5-4 decisions which are viewed as lacking in mandate.

Hillary to go after Second Amendment!

Hillary has made it clear she will use the Supreme Court to go after the 2nd Amendment. She has literally said that the Supreme Court was wrong in its Heller decision stating that the Court should overturn and remove the individual right to keep and bear arms. Period.

A “No” vote for Trump ‘is’ a vote for Hillary !

Hear this! If Hillary Clinton wins and gets to make these appointments, you likely will never see another conservative victory at the Supreme Court level for the rest of your life. Ever.

Remember Romney? Three million conservatives who had voted for McCain did not cast a vote for Romney (for whatever reason) and the result was four an additional 4 years of B.H.O.

If you are not convinced yet, I’ll leave with one final thought:
Hillary is already on the record as saying that her buddy, B.H.O. (Yep, that’s Barack Obama) “would make a great Supreme Court Justice.”

DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT THIS MEANS?

If elected President, Hillary will make Obama a Supreme Court Justice!  He and she will continue to destroy our country taking away all of our rights including the Second Amendment!

New Book, ‘Clinton Cash,’ Questions Foreign Donations to Foundation

New Book, ‘Clinton Cash,’ Questions Foreign Donations to Foundation

The book does not hit shelves until May 5, but already the Republican Rand Paul has called its findings “big news” that will “shock people” and make voters “question” the candidacy of Hillary Rodham Clinton.

“Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich,” by Peter Schweizer — a 186-page investigation of donations made to the Clinton Foundation by foreign entities — is proving the most anticipated and feared book of a presidential cycle still in its infancy.

The book, a copy of which was obtained by The New York Times, asserts that foreign entities who made payments to the Clinton Foundation and to Mr. Clinton through high speaking fees received favors from Mrs. Clinton’s State Department in return.

“We will see a pattern of financial transactions involving the Clintons that occurred contemporaneous with favorable U.S. policy decisions benefiting those providing the funds,” Mr. Schweizer writes.

His examples include a free-trade agreement in Colombia that benefited a major foundation donor’s natural resource investments in the South American nation, development projects in the aftermath of the Haitian earthquake in 2010, and more than $1 million in payments to Mr. Clinton by a Canadian bank and major shareholder in the Keystone XL oil pipeline around the time the project was being debated in the State Department.

In the long lead up to Mrs. Clinton’s campaign announcement, aides proved adept in swatting down critical books as conservative propaganda, including Edward Klein’s “Blood Feud,” about tensions between the Clintons and the Obamas, and Daniel Halper’s “Clinton Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.”

But “Clinton Cash” is potentially more unsettling, both because of its focused reporting and because major news organizations including The Times, The Washington Post and Fox News have exclusive agreements with the author  to pursue the story lines found in the book.

Members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, which includes Mr. Paul and Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, have been briefed on the book’s findings, and its contents have already made their way into several of the Republican presidential candidates’ campaigns.

Conservative “super PACs” plan to seize on “Clinton Cash,” and a pro-Democrat super PAC has already assembled a dossier on Mr. Schweizer, a speechwriting consultant to former President George W. Bush and a fellow at the conservative Hoover Institution who has contributed to the conservative website Breitbart.com, to make the case that he has a bias against Mrs. Clinton.

And the newly assembled Clinton campaign team is planning a full-court press to diminish the book as yet another conservative hit job.

A campaign spokesman, Brian Fallon, called the book part of the Republicans’ coordinated attack strategy on Mrs. Clinton “twisting previously known facts into absurd conspiracy theories,” and he said “it will not be the first work of partisan-fueled fiction about the Clintons’ record, and we know it will not be the last.”

Mr. Schweizer and a spokeswoman for HarperCollins, which is owned by News Corporation and is publishing the book, declined to comment.

The timing is problematic for Mrs. Clinton as she begins a campaign to position herself as a “champion for everyday Americans.”

From 2001 to 2012, the Clintons’ income was at least $136.5 million, Mr. Schweizer writes, using a figure previously reported in The Post. “During Hillary’s years of public service, the Clintons have conducted or facilitated hundreds of large transactions” with foreign governments and individuals, he writes. “Some of these transactions have put millions in their own pockets.”

The Clinton Foundation has come under scrutiny for accepting foreign donations while Mrs. Clinton served as secretary of state. Last week, the foundation revised its policy to allow donations from countries like Germany, Canada, the Netherlands and Britain but prohibit giving by other nations in the Middle East.

Mr. Schweizer’s book will be released the same day former President Bill Clinton and the Clintons’ daughter, Chelsea, will host the Clinton Global Initiative gathering with donors in Morocco, the culmination of a foundation trip to several African nations. (A chapter in the book is titled “Warlord Economics: The Clintons Do Africa.”)

There is a robust market for books critical of the Clintons. The thinly sourced “Blood Feud,” by Mr. Klein, at one point overtook Mrs. Clinton’s memoir “Hard Choices” on the best-seller list.

But whether Mr. Schweizer’s book can deliver the same sales is not clear. He writes mainly in the voice of a neutral journalist and meticulously documents his sources, including tax records and government documents, while leaving little doubt about his view of the Clintons.

His reporting largely focuses on payments made to Mr. Clinton for speeches, which increased while his wife served as secretary of state, writing that “of the 13 Clinton speeches that fetched $500,000 or more, only two occurred during the years his wife was not secretary of state.”

In 2011, Mr. Clinton made $13.3 million in speaking fees for 54 speeches, the majority of which were made overseas, the author writes.

Hillary and Snowden Broke Same Laws

Hillary and Snowden Broke Same Laws

Hillary Clinton Benghazi attack

When it comes to classified information, some leaks are more equal than others. If you are a whistleblower like Edward Snowden, who tells the press about illegal, immoral or embarrassing government actions, you will face jail time. But it’s often another story for US government officials leaking information for their own political benefit.

Two stories this week perfectly illustrate this hypocrisy and how, despite their unprecedented crackdown on sources and whistleblowers, the Obama administration – like every administration before it – loves to use leaks, if and when it suits them.

Consider a government leak that ran in the New York Times on Monday. The article was about 300 of Hillary Clinton’s now notorious State Department emails, which had been hidden away on her private server for years and were turned over to Congress as part of the never-ending Benghazi investigation.

“Four senior government officials” described the content of her emails to New York Times journalists in minute detail “on the condition of anonymity because they did not want to jeopardize their access to secret information”.

Surely the Obama administration will promptly root out and prosecute those leakers, right? After all, the emails haven’t gone through a security review and the chances of them discussing classified information are extremely high. (Even if they don’t, the Espionage Act doesn’t require the information to be classified anyways, only that information leaked be “related to national defense”.) But those emails supposedly clear Clinton of any wrongdoing in the Benghazi affair, which likely makes the leak in the administration’s interest.

But that disclosure was nothing compared to what appeared in the Wall Street Journal a day later, in the wake of Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s underhanded attempts to derail a nuclear deal with Iran. The Journal reported on Tuesday that not only did Israel spy on Americans negotiating with Iran, but they gave that information to Republicans in Congress, in an attempt to scuttle the deal.

How does the US know this? Well, according to the Journal and its government sources, the US itself intercepted communications between Israeli officials that discussed information that could have only come from the US-Iran talks. The disclosure of this fact sounds exactly like the vaunted “sources and methods” – i.e. how the US conducts surveillance and gets intelligence – that the government continually claims is the most sensitive information they have.

It’s why they claim Edward Snowden belongs in jail for decades. So while it’s apparently unacceptable to leak details about surveillance that affects ordinary citizens’ privacy, its OK for officials to do so for their own political benefit – and no one raises an eyebrow.

We can be quite certain that no one will be prosecuted for the leaks given that they benefitted the administration’s powerful former Secretary of State, and bolsters its position in its public dust-up with Israel.

When it comes to leaks, the powerful play by different rules than everyone else – despite the fact that they’ve violated the same law they’ve accused so many other leakers of breaking. That’s why David Petraeus was given a sweetheart plea deal with no jail time after leaking highly classified information to his biographer and lover. (He’s apparently already back advising the White House, despite leaking and then lying to the FBI about the identities of countless covert officers).

It’s also the same reason why investigations into a leak suspected to have involved General Cartwright, once known as “Obama’s favorite general”, have stalled. As the Washington Post reported: the defense “might try to put the White House’s relationship with reporters and the use of authorized leaks on display, creating a potentially embarrassing distraction for the administration”.

Former CIA officer Jeffrey Sterling faces sentencing next month after being found guilty of leaking information to New York Times reporter James Risen. Sterling’s problem is that he leaked information showing a spectacular and embarrassing failure on the CIA’s part – which did not help a powerful politician score points. He is also not a general.

As a result, he faces decades in jail.

Ben Carson 2016 Presidential Candidate? Surgeon To Air 40 Minute Docu-Ad

Ben Carson 2016 Presidential Candidate? Surgeon To Air 40 Minute Docu-Ad


by

WASHINGTON, Nov. 7 (UPI) — Ben Carson is officially a Republican again, and he’s unofficially running for president.

The conservative physician switched his political affiliation back from independent to the GOP on Election Day, and made no effort to hide the reason why.

“It’s truly a pragmatic move because I have to run in one party or another. If you run as an independent, you only risk splitting the electorate,” Carson told The Washington Times Tuesday, after making the change. “I clearly would not be welcome in the Democratic Party, and so that only leaves one party. Fortunately, the fit is pretty good.”

Carson, the Johns Hopkins surgeon known for his work separating conjoined twins, made waves at the 2013 National Prayer breakfast with a speech criticizing President Obama while the president sat just feet away.

He grew up a Democrat, but was inspired by President Reagan to join the Republican Party. By the time the GOP Congress impeached President Clinton, he said, he was left with a “sour taste” and left the Republicans too.

Carson, 63, has made no secret of his presidential ambitions, although in September, he said he wasn’t planning on making a formal announcement one way or the other until May.

For now, he’ll concentrate on introducing himself to the country. Sometime this weekend, a 40-minute advertisement will air in 22 states and Washington, D.C., detailing his biography and personal life, from a childhood in Detroit to his four decades at Hopkins.

“A Breath of Fresh Air: A New Prescription for America” was filmed and paid for by the production company run by conservative commentator Armstrong Williams, who is also paying for airtime, and aide told ABC. Williams is Carson’s business manager.

18 Year Old Teen Girl Youngest Elected Lawmaker: Liberals Not Happy

18 Year Old Teen Girl Youngest Elected Lawmaker: Liberals Not Happy

View image on Twitter

Saira Blair made history on Tuesday by becoming the youngest elected lawmaker in history, being just 18-years-old and winning a seat in West Virginia’s state legislature, and apparently, liberals aren’t too happy about it.

On Wednesday, liberal trolls and other whiney progressives lashed out on Twitter to express their discontent with her remarkable accomplishment. Twitchy posted some of their comments, and they’re enough to make you sick to your stomach.

Talk about no class whatsoever, and these people wonder why Democrats are becoming a dying breed in politics. Don’t forget, the Democrats also received a historic ass-kicking on Tuesday.

Fortunately, she received plenty of support from conservatives, who saw her achievement as something to be celebrated.

We feel the same way. What an awesome thing to have done, and I’m sure she’ll work hard to do a good job in her new position. Unfortunately, the criticism from our nearly brain-dead counterparts probably won’t go away anytime soon, but it doesn’t seem like that’s going to bother her all that much.

After all, she’s now an elected official.

What do you think of the vile comments from these idiot liberals? Sound off in the comments!

If Republicans Had Embraced Tea Party, Elections Wouldn’t Even Be A Contest

If Republicans Had Embraced Tea Party, Elections Wouldn’t Even Be A Contest

The outcomes wouldn’t even have been close

Rush: If Republicans had embraced the tea party, midterm results wouldn’t even be a contest
by JOE SAUNDERS | BIZPAC REVIEW

With just about every poll and pundit predicting Republican success in Tuesday’s elections, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh told listeners the outcomes wouldn’t even have been close if the GOP paid more attention to its tea party base.

Limbaugh was reacting to a Politico piece posted Monday, “Mainstream GOP Sees Tipping Point vs. Insurgent Candidates,” that aimed to explain Republicans expected successes Tuesday as a victory for the party’s “establishment,” structure.

National Republicans managed this year to snuff out every bomb-throwing insurgent who tried to wrest a Senate nod away from one of their favored candidates ….

The confrontational approach — by both party committees and outside super PACs — represented a sharp departure from the GOP’s cautious strategy in the 2010 and 2012 cycles, when cartoonishly inept nominees aligned with the tea party lost the party as many as five Senate seats.

So it was the Republican national party turning its back on the tea party that set the table for victory on Tuesday?

Wrong, Limbaugh said.

It was the tea party – vast and unorganized but deeply committed — that kept the conservative cause alive and thriving long before the rest of the country or the GOP establishment got a handle on the results of Barack Obama’s 2008 victory and liberal Democrats control of the House, Senate and White House.

And if Republicans win the midterm electoral victories that are being predicted, it will be in spite of the national party’s efforts to distance itself from the base that kept it alive in the first place. Had the national party been even open to what Politico describes as “insurgents” in the GOP ranks, it would have been seeing even more success, Limbaugh said.

And if the Republican Party had embraced the most amazing political event of our lifetime, and that’s the rise of the Tea Party … — ah, you might want to say the fall of the Berlin Wall, but that also had foreign policy connotations. But out of nowhere this massive political movement rises. Out of nowhere in 2010 it arises precisely because of its opposition to the Democrat president, the Democrat Party, and what they are doing to the country, and to this day the Republican Party has refused to embrace it. In fact, it’s the opposite.

They’ve attempted to diminish and impugn the Tea Party to the point now we’ve got a Politico story, which says that the real thing the Republicans are gonna celebrate if they take the Senate is not taking the Senate but vanquishing the idea that the Tea Party is needed for Republicans to win.
As usual, Rush is right.

Of course there were primary fights between Republicans – that’s what primaries are for. But none of the Republicans in competitive races Tuesday had the luxury of turning their backs on the tea party movement.

Nor should they, even if election politics were different this year. The goal, after all, is not winning intra-Republican disputes. And it’s not winning elections just for the sake of winning elections in 2016. The goal is repairing some of the damage wrought over the past six years by the victory of “hope and change” illusions in 2008.

And that’s going to mean the tea party movement is more important even than it was before – no matter what GOP sources might be telling lefty news website reporters inside the Beltway.

“It’s not about stopping the tea party, for crying out loud!” Limbaugh said. “It’s about stopping Obama.”

It has been since Day One. And the tea party knew it long before the “mainstream” GOP did.

Second Amendment Crushes Gun Control Candidates in Elections

Second Amendment Crushes Gun Control Candidates in Elections

Shall not be infringed gun rights second amendment

As the election returns came in on November 4 one thing was evident—the Second Amendment crushed gun control candidates in Senate and gubernatorial races around the country.

In so doing, the Second Amendment annihilated the left’s relentless claim that 90 percent of Americans support more gun control.

On the gubernatorial level, in Arizona, pro-Second Amendment candidate Doug Ducey (R) beat gun control candidate Fred DuVaul (D). And in Florida, pro-Second Amendment incumbent Rick Scott (R) beat gun control candidate Charlie Crist. These victories were enhanced by the fact that Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly endorsed DuVal and Giffords’ gun control PAC gave $100,000 to Crist’s campaign.

The Second Amendment trumped their endorsement and their money.

  • In Texas, NRA-endorsed gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott (R) won.
  • In Maryland, NRA-endorsed gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan (R) won.
  • In Alabama, NRA-endorsed Governor Robert J. Bentley (R) won.
  • In Wisconsin, NRA-endorsed Governor Scott Walker (R) won.
  • In Michigan, NRA-endorsed Governor Rick Snyder (R) won.
  • In Nevada, NRA-endorsed Governor Brian Sandval (R) won.
  • In Ohio, NRA-endorsed Governor John R. Kasich (R) won.
  • In Oklahoma, NRA-endorsed Governor Mary Fallin (R) won.
  • In Wyoming, NRA-endorsed Governor Matt Mead (R) won.
  • In Idaho, NRA-endorsed Governor Bruce Otter (R) won.
  • In Kansas, NRA-endorsed Governor Sam Brownback (R) won.
  • And in Maine, NRA-endorsed Governor Paul R. LePage (R) won against gun control candidate Michael Michaud (D). (On August 8, Breitbart News reported that Michaud was supported by Gabby Giffords.)

In Senate races, gun control Senator Mark Udall (D-CO) was defeated by NRA-endorsed Cory Gardner (R) and gun control Senator Kay Hagan (D-NC) was defeated by NRA-endorsed Thom Tillis (R). In Kansas, NRA-endorsed Senator Pat Roberts (R) won. In Georgia, NRA-endorsed Senatorial candidate Bill Perdue (R) won. In Arkansas, NRA-endorsed Tom Cotton (R) won. And in West Virginia, NRA-endorsed Shelly Moore Capito (R) won, marking the first time that state has sent a Republican Senator to Washington DC in over five decades.

The spotlight was also on the race between NRA-endorsed Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and pro-gun control challenger Alison Grimes (D). McConnell won handily.

NRA-endorsed Senatorial candidate Joni Ernst (R-IA) also won.

On November 3—the day before the elections took place—Breitbart News reminded red state and pro-Second Amendment voters to vote like their guns depended on it. They did. And as result, the Second Amendment won the day, Republicans won the Senate, and gun control took a beating.

Mail carrier investigated after Republican fliers dumped in trash

NEENAH, Wis. — Postmaster Brian Smoot said Monday that an investigation is underway into whether a city mail carrier dumped hundreds of pieces of Republican campaign fliers into a recycling bin.

The post office recovered nearly 880 pieces of political mailings Thursday from a dumpster at a Neenah apartment complex, said Bob Rukes, special agent for the U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General.

“We have an ongoing investigation on this here,” Rukes said. “If it’s determined that there is wrongdoing by a postal employee, the end result can be all the way up to removal and/or criminal prosecution.”

Smoot would not comment on the employment status of the mail carrier under investigation.

Most of the campaign fliers were “Get Out the Vote” direct mailings from Republican Mike Rohrkaste, who reported the incident to the post office Thursday after a resident e-mailed him about the mail.

“It’s unfortunate somebody made a choice that shouldn’t have ever happened because nobody should have their mail disrupted,” Rohrkaste said. “My main concern was getting my message out to the voters of the 55th District.”

Rohrkaste, a former human services manager, is running against Democrat Mark Westphal for the 55th state Assembly District seat. The winner replaces Dean Kaufert, who didn’t seek re-election after being elected Neenah mayor.

Westphal said he had no knowledge of the incident until he was called for comment.

“I just think it’s unfortunate that it happened and will let the investigation take its course. I trust what the post office can do with their investigation, but certainly don’t condone those type of activities,” Westphal said.

The found mail also included direct mail from Republican State Sen. Glenn Grothman, who is running for the 6th Congressional District seat, and messages from a third party in support of Republican Roger Roth, who is vying for the 19th state Senate District seat, Rohrkaste said.

The Grothman campaign was told about the incident and is waiting to hear the results of the investigation, said Andy Post, spokesman for the campaign.

“We’re disappointed that Republican mail pieces were trashed before reaching voters, but we’re not completely shocked,” Post said. “Shenanigans happen in election years and we hope the investigation finds the person responsible for depriving voters of fair information about Glenn Grothman.”

Agents don’t think this incident was politically motivated.

“So far the investigation has determine that it was just a bad decision involving a postal employee, but nothing that indicates that it was targeted to a specific candidate or political party,” Rukes said.

Once the investigation is complete, agents will present their findings to the post office. Investigators can also present a report to a U.S. Attorney or the local district attorney for criminal prosecution, Rukes said.

The standard mail fliers were inventoried and delivered to recipients on Friday, Rukes said. Rohrkaste praised Smoot and a postal supervisor for their quick response.

Chicago Way: Voting Machines Changing Republican Votes to Democrat Blamed on a ‘Calibration Error’

Chicago Way: Voting Machines Changing Republican Votes to Democrat Blamed on a ‘Calibration Error’

By

Rahm.Emanuel.Obama
Cook County, Illinois and Obama’s political home of Chicago are famous for dirty politics, political greed and voter fraud and this year’s early voting shows that not much has changed.

Chicago has always been a breeding ground and hotbed of political corruption and still is the home of the Communist Party USA, and was the home of Communist radical Saul Alinsky who taught that the “ends justifies the means.”

When Republican state representative candidate Jim Moynihan went to vote on Monday at the Schaumburg Public Library, his vote, which was naturally cast for himself, was changed by the voting machine to that of his Democrat opponent, reports  Watchdog.org:

“I tried to cast a vote for myself and instead it cast the vote for my opponent,” Moynihan said. “You could imagine my surprise as the same thing happened with a number of races when I tried to vote for a Republican and the machine registered a vote for a Democrat.”

Whenever Moynihan attempted to vote for a Republican, the voting machine registered the vote for the Democrat instead.

Cook County Board of Elections Deputy Communications Director Jim Scalzitti, told the Illinois Watchdog, that, “It was a calibration error of the touch-screen on the machine.”

Of course, it’s interesting that the so-called calibration error, was always in favor of switching the vote from Republican to Democrat, and not the other way around. Chicago politics have been dominated by the Democrat Party for decades.

Is this part of what is known as a “Chicago Way?”
