Yes world…She is a Sherman Tank. She is tough. A bulldog of a woman. Don’t believe me? Look at that face. Loretta Lynch, it going to prove that woman can be bad-ass.
Our new Attorney General is going to go after the criminals, not here in the United States but—
…in World Soccer.
Nobody Wonders why she isn’t going after the criminals in the IRS, our veterans administration, our state department, or the White House? And…how about the Clintons?
No…world soccer. THAT’s where the corruption is most dangerous.
By the way…when did the Attorney General’s job become policing the rest of the world?
Loretta…let it be known that international soccer, that subject of corruption that has been on EVERY American’s hearts, minds, and lips, had to be cleaned up. To the Obama administration this is MUCH more important. After all, he really can’t go after ISIS so the next best thing is…soccer.
May 27, 2015 Loretta Lynch’s Justice Department unsealed a 47-count indictment Wednesday morning laden with racketeering, corruption, and conspiracy charges against 14 defendants associated with FIFA, the world soccer association, and international soccer organizations.
“Many of the individuals and organizations we will describe today were entrusted with keeping soccer open and accessible to all,” she said. “They were expected to uphold the rules that keep soccer honest and to protect the integrity of the game. Instead they corrupted the business of worldwide soccer to serve their interests and to enrich themselves.”
“The indictment alleges corruption that is rampant, systemic, and deep-rooted both abroad and here in the United States,” Lynch said in a statement. “It spans at least two generations of soccer officials who, as alleged, have abused their positions of trust to acquire millions of dollars in bribes and kickbacks. And it has profoundly harmed a multitude of victims, from the youth leagues and developing countries that should benefit from the revenue generated by the commercial rights these organizations hold, to the fans at home and throughout the world whose support for the game makes those rights valuable.”
“corruption that is rampart, systemic, and deep rooted.”
Okay, You can’t make this up. Our new Attorney General is outraged that the youth soccer leagues all over the world have been hurt.
Can I get a vowel here? Are pigs flying in the streets of Pennsylvania Ave? Is April fool’s day now been moved onto our daily calendar? Have predatory worms started talking to Joe Biden?
Did someone find a fish sucking bananas in Lincoln’s bedroom? Is the sun still yellow?
Is it me? Is the suggested fact that soccer children are suffering around the world not quite the same as a veteran dying in the parking lot of a veterans hospital in our own country because nobody would come out and pick him up? Our veterans are dying because the VA is so corrupt, and yet nothing, MS Lynch?
Not to mention, did any of those boys on Wall Street go to jail?
How about prosecuting some of them?
Loretta is concerned that youth international soccer…is in danger. It’s right up there with climate change.
The indictment alleges that marketing executives paid out $150 million in kickbacks and bribes in order to secure rights to major soccer tournaments.
Yes, and HOW many millions in kickbacks did the Clinton’s get just this year alone?
To prove she means business, our new Attorney General told everyone that some of these peoples used his various position in international soccer for “personal gain.”
Is that bacon fat in the kitchen smoking yet?
And just when you think that Al Gore might have real competition in the Ozone Wonderland of Black Rabbit holes, another one of our leaders, FBI Director, James Comey, said, and I quote”
“You will be held accountable for that corruption. Nobody is above or beyond the law.”
Since WHEN does anybody in our government hold anybody accountable for corruption? You CANNOT make this stuff up.
CHRIS MATTHEWS: Why didn’t Eric Holder grab this before he left? This is good stuff. I mean, if you want to get points with the American public, be a tough gangbuster. Go after the bad guys, go after foreign bad guys. Go after Middle Eastern bad guys. Go after Swiss bad guys. This would have made Holder a popular guy. And now Loretta, this is a bouquet he gave her.
She comes in and she gets a great case to break.
A great case? How much are we paying this lady?
So, what’s in this for Obama and his Lynch? Some of that “international” money bag? Are they joining the Clinton way of bribes and extortion?
Nobody Wins, when the United States President and his Attorney General are more concerned about kids little league foreign soccer camps, than the be-headings of Christians.
Ms Alice Lynch has fallen down the rabbit hole of absurdity. It’s the same old “Keep your eye over here, while the REAL corruption is happening right in front of you.”
Loretta Lynch—paving the way for the safe use of …a safe soccer ball world.
Yes, I’m sure of it. Pigs are flying. Ever since Congress impeached Bill Clinton for grouping an intern instead of the more serious crime of giving North Korea plutonium, we have all been on a travel log to never, never, never, never, land of insanity.
Soccer. Who knew we were in so much danger?
Hillary said today that the deck is stacked in favor of the top. A CEO in America, she said, makes 300 times more than his employees.
She wants to “reshuffle” that deck. This is an impossible task.
First, you have to HAVE a deck to shuffle. We don’t have many left.
Judge Napolitano, in his book It Is Dangerous to be Right When the Government Is Wrong, explains why…why America lost all her decks—It’s because of government regulations.
All regulations violate property rights in some way or another. Tariffs, excise taxes, duties, and sales taxes violate the property rights of the sellers of the goods because the price for their goods is raised, making them less competitive and less profitable: as well the buyers of these goods are forced into paying higher prices for goods, thus paring with more money than would have been the case had these regulation not been in place.
The government decides one day that it is going to charge you a widget licensing fee of one hundred thousand dollars per year for the privilege of being allowed to use your land how you wanted to, this not only decreases the value of your factory since there is a hefty cost imposed on anyone who wishes to use it, but it also is a taking of one hundred thousand dollars of your property every year.
Let’s say then the government says you have to hire union workers. Now to make widgets you must give workers higher wages, bigger benefit packages, longer vacation times, shorter working hours and better pension for retirement. And if they demand you deal with a certain union giving the union greater power for bargaining in the future. And you are forced to guarantee that you will never use improved machinery or roots that could produce widgets faster and more efficiently tan any of the current union workers because then they would be out of a job.
To make matters worse, your main widget producing competitor for Asia has an unregulated widget factory comprised of only robots that are producing the cheapens and highest quality widget in the world. Now your business is regulated to bankruptcy. And this is precisely when the government will swoop in to bail out your creditors., kick you out of the management office, purchase your business and factory for pennies on the dollar, and transfer ownership of it to your union workers– the UAW. I mean the UWW.
Nobody Wonders what percentage of wages Hillary makes compared to her hairdresser. I bet it’s more than 300 times. And Hillary is a BIG fan of government regulations.
Keeping people poor can get you BIG government money. Follow the money, as the old saying goes, and you will find the real reason for most everything.
The city of Baltimore received over $1.8 billion from President Barack Obama’s stimulus law, including $467.1 million to invest in education and $26.5 million for crime prevention.
President Obama claimed last Tuesday that if the Republican-controlled Congress would implement his policies to make “massive investments in urban communities,” they could “make a difference right now” in the city, currently in upheaval following the death of Freddie Gray.
And let’s not leave out the big money everybody is getting in Ferguson, including the lawyers…
Ferguson, Missouri, is paying an attorney $1,335 an hour to help the St. Louis suburb negotiate and possibly litigated reforms pressed by the Justice Department since Michael Brown’s shooting death by a police officer there last summer, according to a newspaper report.
The Ferguson City Council unanimously decided behind closed doors in March to hire Dan K. Webb of suburban Chicago at an hourly rate that Missouri Lawyers Weekly, a legal publication, said is nearly double Missouri’s highest attorney billing rate last year, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. That tab doesn’t include the expenses and fees of any lawyers or paralegals in Webb’s firm who may work on the case.
Really? Over a thousand an hour? Even astronauts don’t make that kind of money.
When politicians can grant big wades of taxpayers money to people in dire “need” then the more poor people in need we have, the more money the politicians can hand out to their friends. If that isn’t a big incentive to keep everybody poor, I don’t know what is.
Race baiting is BIG business now.
Is it any wonder Jesse Jackson has visited Obama in the White House more than any other person?
Come on. Come on. COME on!
I don’t get it. Today it was revealed by the New York Times no less, that the Clinton’s had received big piles of money for basically selling U.S. uranium to Russia, giving RUSSIA control of the world uranium market, which Putin has always wanted.
That explains the red button.
The Clinton’s didn’t report that money, but somebody has finally gotten proof:
From the New York Times:
Beyond mines in Kazakhstan that are among the most lucrative in the world, (Which Bill Clinton helped broker) the sale gave the Russians control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States. Since uranium is considered a strategic asset, with implications for national security, the deal had to be approved by a committee composed of representatives from a number of United States government agencies. Among the agencies that eventually signed off was the State Department, then headed by Mr. Clinton’s wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton.
As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million. Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clinton’s, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations as well.
Why is anyone surprised? For a long time I’ve been claiming, that although there is no proof that Presidents are receiving millions from foreign governments (and that would also include the Bushes) unless you have “proof” you can never accuse.
But when Bill Clinton did the very same thing, nobody but a few at Newsmax covered it.
Remember, Bill Clinton gave China the ability to be able to launch nukes at us, AND helped North Korea nuke up. He should have been impeached for that and put in a jail cell with Monica’s blue dress to hug.
From Year of the Rat:
In return, the Clinton-Gore team signed waivers allowing these companies to transfer our most sensitive satellite (i.e., missile launching) technology to Red China, obliterating the safety margin and technological edge we previously had on our sworn and potential enemies. (China then transferred sensitive U.S. technology to Pakistan, Iran, and North Korea.)
Nobody Thinks, that the Clintons have been selling U.S. assets for YEARS…and everybody just let them get by with it, because we do live in a oligarchy. And while us nobodies think the NSA is all about spying on us, think what dirt it gives to the powerful for the purpose of blackmail and extortion of their enemies?
Somebody very powerful doesn’t want Hillary to be President.
And the nobodies of the world…just sit back…and wonder.—-What are they selling off next? Air Force One?
Is that why they are making five more of them.?
Today was tax day, April 15. I don’t know about you, but if you know the facts about how rigged the tax system is, what Hillary Clinton says is true: The super rich really don’t have to pay taxes. Hillary has no plans to stop this great wealth of billionaires that are covering the globe, because she is one of them, but she knows that just to say it, will get a lot of head shakes, and votes.
Because it’s true. The rich hide their assets in offshore accounts and pay no taxes, and you can be sure that includes Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Or, they merge their assets like Bill Gates and Warren Buffet in a ‘foundation’ where no government can touch it. They pay no income tax because all their money is from dividends.
The World’s Richest Hide $31 Trillion Dollars to Avoid Taxes
Is it any wonder they own islands?
As corporate earnings season begins in earnest, the advocacy group Citizens for Tax Justice has released a report detailing 15 Fortune 500 companies that don’t pay any taxes.
The list includes CBS, General Electric, Interpublic Group, JetBlue Airways, Mattel, Owens Corning, PG&E, Pepco Holdings, Priceline.com, Prudential Financial, Qualcomm, Ryder System, Time Warner, Weyerhaeuser and Xerox.
As a whole, the 15 companies paid no federal income tax on $23 billion in profits in 2014, and they paid almost no federal income tax on $107 billion in profits during the past five years. All but two received federal tax rebates in 2014, and almost all paid exceedingly low rates over five years.
Last year Obama collected more money from the sinking middle class than has ever been collected in history. So why not take Air Force One out every day?
It’s known now to most everybody that it’s the people who are NOT billionaires are paying for the very rich.
On average, every filer who fills out a 1040 individual income tax form would need to pay an additional $1,259 in taxes to make up for the revenue lost.
And it’s not just the billionaires that are ripping us all off, it’s the IRS who is handing out tax refunds like candy to illegal’s who get it by fraud.
A report by the Inspector General found that some 2 million illegal immigrants have been receiving large tax refunds by pretending that numerous dependents live with them … when, in fact, most of the dependents live in Mexico and have never lived in the United States.
The ‘left’ wants the rich to pay more…but the “rich” is not them and their brilliance friends, oh noooooo it’s the guy who makes $52,000. You’re the rich one. The average Joe.
And yet, the upcoming candidates will run on changing the tax code.
Think: Do you REALLY think that is going to happen in our lifetimes?
Remember when we found out that Obama’s Secret Service had been partying with prostitutes in South America? Obama was…Hey, how did that happen, huh?
This morning, Congress put on a good show of being appalled that the head of the DEA, Michelle Leonhart, was not as appalled as they were on the report that DEA agents have been partying with prostitutes on the taxpayers dime down in Columbia….for it seems, many many years.
That report said 10 agents – an assistant regional director and nine special agents – had alleged sex parties on government-leased property and used taxpayer money to pay for the prostitutes. After investigation, seven of the agents admitted attending the parties and were suspended for between two and 10 days, the earlier report said.
What was even more surprising is that Michelle, the head of the DEA, cannot fire any of those guys. You see, she said, that was the responsibility of two guys below her. But..she DID send out a memo saying that hiring prostitutes was not a good thing, and please don’t do it. But she can’t fire anyone. A few of them got a ten-day suspension with pay. She couldn’t even tell Congress IF they should be fired.
It seems SHE has been giving money to the Colombian National police, who in turn bought prostitutes for the DEA agents. But wait! It gets better.
The drug cartels were giving the police money too, to pay for prostitutes. Somebody is double dipping, and no, no nobody knows how young these girls were.
The Congressmen then realized that you could be fired for saying something “sexist” in your office, but not for hiring prostitutes with taxpayer money and partying with drug cartels.
Good to know.
What should the Congress do? Well, it’s obvious to us, Michelle Leonhart should be fired immediately.
They can’t do that.
“In many of these cases, recommended punishments were reduced without explanation,” the report states. “The internal report does not discuss punishments for DEA supervisors who may have known about these allegations and failed to report them.”
She can’t be fired by anyone….unless it’s done by Obama. (All roads lead back to the same source, have you notice a pattern here?)
I don’t know about you. but I want my money back. If we are going to pay for prostitutes for the DEA, it might as well go to American prostitutes.
What kind of country is this?
“If tyranny and oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy” …James Madison.
This week, I have been reading a chapter in Judge Napolitano’s book, “It Is Dangerous to Be Right When The Government Is Wrong”
The chapter is called, “War…War…What is it good for?”
According to the Judge, most of our wars were started by falsehoods from our Presidents. FDR wanted a way to get into the war with Hilter …but he had promised the American people before his election, that he would stay out of it.
“I have said this before, but I shall say it again and again,. Your boys are not going to be sent to any foreign wars.”
His plan? Provoke the Japanese navy into killing American sailors. On September 27th 1940, Japan, Germany, and Italy entered into a mutual assistance treaty called the Tripartite Pact. The Pact required the thee nations to come to each other’s aid and protection if one of the others in the Pat was attacked. Germany would then come to Japans assistance.
Voila! We are in.
FDR responded to Churchill’s please to enter the war,
FDR wanted to provoke Japan, and when Admiral James O. Richardson commander in chief of the U.S. Fleet voiced objection, FDR fired him.
“I don’t mind losing one or two cruisers, (Said FDR) but do not take a chance on losing five or six.”
Keep in mind, two lost cruisers equal the deaths of 1,800 men.
Remember that before Pearl Harbor, the U.S. government began marshalling its resources in preparation for a full scale war, including the purchase of $3.5 billion worth of military supplies from automobile plants alone.
FDR’s lie to enter World War II was not the first time a president lied to rally support for war, nor will it be the last.
To garner American support for the ‘impending” Spanish American War, President William McKinley touted the sinking of the USS Maine. McKinley claimed a Spanish mine caused the ships destruction, when in reality the ship’s American captain determined that a coal bin explosion was the cause of the Maine’s sinking.
And how can we forget the WMD’s that weren’t in Iraq?
The truth is, that the ultimate crisis, that war, is a dear friend of the state. In fact, the government uses war as the ultimate means to expand its own power, size and scope. It pounces on the political opportunity to make a grab of power and to do things it does not have the constitutional power to do.
General Smedley Darlington Butler, one of the most lauded marines in U.S. history, said: War is a Racket:
In the World War a mere handful garnered the profits of the conflict. At least 21,00 mew millionaires and billionaires were made in he United States during ht World war. And what is this bill? This bell renders a horrible accounting. Newly place gravestones. Mangled bodies. Shattered minds. Broken heart and homes. Economic instability. Depression and all its attending miseries. Backbreaking taxation for generations and generations.
And if you go by history, than Obama is gearing the whole world up for World War III…all the time acting as if he is preventing it.
If you buy Obama’s claim on this day, that he is making the world more peaceful today by giving the Iranians the power to keep their nuclear reactors, than I have a castle that John Kerry used to live in that you can have for one hundred dollars.
War…it’s coming. And Obama has been preparing for his ultimate power grab…
Right here at home for the last six years.
At least–that’s what will happen if history is repeated. The New Deal, is just the same as the old deal.
NOTE: This was my afternoon post, and RIGHT after Hillary’s speech, when I was about to press the publish button, the server went down…not just mine, everybody’s. Unlike Hillary, I don’t have my own.
So…here it is, although late, remember—I started it before her speech…
Hillary is making us wait…the whole world must wait…to hear her say how she is turning over her emails to the world…but wait. She is very busy at the United Nations…she is THE most important woman in the world…so we must…WAIT.
In the meantime she made sure that everyone knew her theme song: I am woman, hear me roar! Or bark. Or demand. Or do whatever I want. Chelsea wrote a real fluff piece on Huffington Post about women’s issues, and so the black race card will be dropped and the women’s abuse card will be used in its place.
And Hillary launched her Presidency today…at the U.N. She just didn’t announce it, because she doesn’t have to.
Like I said, Hillary was making the world wait for her press conference—-we got camera shots of her listening to other women and nodding her head, as IF it was more important to listen to women, then be where she promised to be: At her staged press conference. …until Judge Napolitano came on FOX and said her crime was a felony. She instantly got up and starting walking…I wonder….who whispered in her little ear.
Okay…I’m waiting…I’m waiting…we are waiting…we are waiting…WAIT…BREAKING NEWS: it’s going to cost the taxpayers millions to just see her emails! HA!
Why didn’t the FBI just go into her house, grab that server, and tell her to stand down?
Update: Here she comes…looking like …Queen Mao in that grey Mao looking suit. What the heck is she wearing? Wait..she is trying desperately to control WHO gets to ask her questions…so what did she say? Let’s listen:
1. You know, I didn’t want to be bothered having to carry around two phones. (She could have taken a minute and set up two difference email accounts…on her ONE phone. Duh.) It was just so simple for me to have just one.
- Whoever I emailed in the government has a copy, so what’s your beef?
- I’m not as good as lying as Obama because I can’t look at the camera with my eyes wide open and lie. I am just going to stare at this guy’s shoes in front of me…and lie, and lie, and then pucker up with a big planted fake smile! Seeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
- I broke no laws, and you can see my emails that I’ve put out there—- having paid a number of people to clean them up for me and make me look really smart and you can see them.
- Hey, it was my husband’s private email server, so god KNOWS you will not be getting that server any time soon. And you CAN’T take a President’s server! It’s guarded night and day by the Secret Service! He just lets me use it.
- You can all %*%& off, I am Mao-Mao. Madame Mao-Mao. Don’t forget it. So I broke the law…what are YOU going to do about it?
And so the questions come: What emails did she already delete? Those discussions about Benghazi with the President? The money passed on to you by foreign leaders? Bill’s many girlfriends under the age of 12? What Obama was REALLY doing the night of Benghazi. Those emails are gone
And can she be more obnoxiously arrogant in her Madame Mao-Mao pants suit?
One more thing: Isn’t is a BIG coincidence that Jeb Bush’s first act when coming out as a contender for the Presidency was…He released all his emails. Nobody, NOBODY, had asked for them. We all went…HUH? What’s THAT all about?
Now we know. Jeb knew what was going to happen very soon…to Hillary.
Leave it to Sarah Palin to get the last word in, bless her heart:
“As Secretary of State under Obama, Hillary Clinton used private email accounts on a privately maintained server 100 percent of the time for 100 percent government business,” Palin noted. “That’s unethical, no doubt illegal, and flies in the face of all claims of transparency. Hillary Clinton and her staff weren’t trying to be in compliance with the law; they were skirting it altogether. ” That’s all she wrote: Guilty as charged.
I think Congress should exempt Snowden, bring him back home to America, and give him Hillary’s server.
After all..I’m SURE we paid for it.
ONE LAST NOTE: It’s now 10 pm. and Mark Levine on the radio just said it was her Mao suit. :) Great minds think alike.
Internet censorship has already begun at my house.
Fox news, yesterday AND today, are just blanked on my cable TV. I can get all other 100 channels, but FOX news is blanked out completely. It happens only during certain subjects are being discussed.
For five to ten minutes at a time. The ads come on, and it’s being blanked out when the subject is Obama or Israel.
Is this happening to anyone else? They didn’t blank out Netanyahu’s speech though. I would say it was a technical problem but WHY are all the other stations not effected?
It’s can’t hurt your brand when one of the richest men in the world basically gives their endorsement to you with a smile. Of course, If Hillary becomes President, then the Keystone pipeline will remain just a republican dream, and Buffets trains, will keep the money flowing.
In the meantime, he wants us all to believe that he lives on Coke and ice cream…so we will all run out and buy Coke and Dairy Queen.
AND, if you, like many Americans, watched the 13 episodes of this year’s season of House of Cards, you will see the perfect timing for Hillary to announce her candidacy.
Next year, going down to the wire, the next season of House of Cards will have Clare Underwood going after the office of the Presidency, in which she will lift woman’s wages, get all American jobs, give gays more rights, and become the format for which all Americans will run to the voting booths and vote for Hillary!
This didn’t get much notice in the national news, but I found this VERY hard to believe…
Missouri Auditor Tom Schweich, who had recently launched a Republican campaign for governor, fatally shot himself in what police described as an apparent suicide, minutes after inviting reporters to his suburban St. Louis home for an interview.
Schweich’s death Thursday stunned many of Missouri’s top elected officials, who described him as a brilliant and devoted public servant with an unblemished record in office. Just 13 minutes before police received an emergency call from his home, Schweich spoke with The Associated Press about his plans to go public that afternoon with allegations that the head of the Missouri Republican Party had made anti-Semitic comments about him.
Think about it: He calls an interview and 13 minutes later he kills himself? Sure. Right. That’s how suicidal people do it. Especially the really intelligent ones.
Last year, during the mid-term elections, out of all the politicians that had their faces on TV, THIS man seemed the most promising. He was straight forward, almost what you would call a tea party man for the people. He was passionate, and a fighter. He promised to go after all the corruption in Missouri…
He was going to run for Governor, and he would have beat Nixon hands down.
It’s important for the democrats AND the Rino’s to keep their people in the leader positions, so there is a big sigh in the “Missouri will go our way” camp of upcoming Presidential elections.
Was this man….killed by orders from above?
Or was he deeply depressed?
How stupid are we?
Yes, and they found Lois Lerner’s emails, and ah…they can’t read them…again.
I was looking forward to voting for him.
And yes, I can say that It’s my Nobody’s Opinion that he was “taken” out, because when it comes to power, we have seen it all…there’s only so many coincidences that can happen in the space and time continuum, and the ledger on coincidences are way out of whack.
In the meantime, they have already I’m sure, working on the wife’s story.
Because that’s what happened. America has been watching reruns of Homer Simpson…not paying much attention to the wars overseas in Iraq, or the fact that our Congress doesn’t declare war anymore, and the fact that almost ALL of our Constitutional rights have been thrown out the proverbial dustbin window, with tons of political pundits exclamation of —“Constitution? What? That old thing?”
When Obama gave himself the right to kill, capture, or jail a citizen without due process, we all just turned the channel to “Whose winning the game?”
So much of that legal nonsense was kept off our TVs, along with the Iraq war. and then, there he was: The slickest marketing program ever run in a Presidential campaign all wrapped up in a big flashy white smile promising the WONDERS of all wonders: Change.
YES! IN JUST FIVE DAYS WE WILL FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGE AMERICA!
Who knew he was talking about making himself Napoleon?
Nobody checked to see if he was eligible. (Actually the Clinton’s knew, but shut up about it.)
A black President, who talked white. He came out of nowhere, and NOBODY asked where he got the money to buy the Presidency. Yes, I said buy.
Somebody was coaching the brilliant marketing of this strange man, who came off as the God of Gods. The perfect candidate. Next to Obama, both Hillary and Mitt Romney, couldn’t with all their money beat that big flashy smile
America LOVES a success story. And a good-looking man. And there he was.
But this time, around, neither Jeb NOR Hillary have that star power, and so, Hillary is not going to take any chances this time…because the internet has been active. She’s hired the BEST marketing people who money can buy. From Coke.
The people of America, have taken a while to wake up. After opening up their disappearing paychecks they went—- “What’s going on here?” And there it was…information, on all the rights they are supposed to have–hey, they don’t? We are being $&$^%#D they all said,— And being a nation of Homer Simpsons, we didn’t know that our whole country had been high jacked, and wow. this is a long introduction to bring me to the subject of today’s piece.
Who high jacked our country?
Let’s ask the judge: First, let me say I ADORE Judge Andrew P. Napolitano, a man who knows just about as much about our rights and laws as any man alive, STILL..
I have to agree with the socialist (okay…I hate them, I really do, but…cringe here) Bernie Sanders, AND even the Indian wacko Elizabeth Warren: Corporations are NOT people. How CAN they claim, that corporations are people? The judge disagrees.
“Take, for example, the publicly condemned holding in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission(2010) The Supreme Court invalidated a sixty-two year old statute prohibiting corporations and labor unions from utilizing general treasury funds to support or defeat a candidate in the sixty days preceding an election. The majority opinion, written by Justice Anthony M. Kennedy held that the First Amendment does not allow for the government to distinguish between speakers in order to determine who can voice tier support for political candidates. As Justice Kennedy wrote, the First Amendment “has it fullest and most urgent application to speech uttered during a campaign for political office. Moreover the fact that one speaker may have more wealth than another does not necessitate a ban on speech.” Bill Gates most likely has more money than you and I combined, but a ban on his speech simply on account of his wealth would be patently unconstitutional.
He goes on:
Opponents of the decision claim that will be corruption in the electoral process, as individuals opinions will be overshadowed by corporate prerogatives, and the holding will lead to a future in which the President is chosen by the Board of Directors of General Motors.
However while these dire predictions might be worth debating it is the corporation and unions constitution right to endorse the candidates of the choosing. After all our founders did not seek to found the most convenient or efficient form of government but the government which would best guarantee our fundamental liberties. Critics of Citizen Unite err in their failure to recognize this point.
Okay. I want to know, how letting unions, and billionaires, and in Bill and Hillary’s case, money from foreign governments— BEST guarantee the vast majority of citizens fundamental liberties? IF the corporations have the most money, then we become a ..government ruled by oligarchy, or just as bad, a democracy if you like.
IF we lived in a time when politicians could never be bought, that might make sense, but we don’t. And the Judge knows that.
For example, the teachers union have supported democrats forever. The people IN the union do not have a say what party the union leaders gives to. And look what it’s done to our kids.
Our schools are the WORST, and it matters not. The unions keep the leaders they want in power, and the money stays at the top.
Sure, Bill Gates should be allowed to give as much money of his personal wealth as he wants to, but when it comes to corporations and CEO’s who want to buy influence—–our political system is just about as corrupt as any.
I do not believe for one minute our Founders thought that rich men, “buying” an election was a fundamental right..especially if it hurts the vast majority. And look around: it has.
And how do we know that Obama isn’t doing what he is doing as a quid-pro-quo for the many governments around the world that HE received money from while campaigning? Does Joe Blow get a ride on Air Force One when Obama goes to China to make trade deals? No, he couldn’t afford it.
Saudi money funded Obama’s college education. And I don’t know about you, but when Obama leaned over to Medvedev to whisper that he’d be able to do more once he was elected, it was said just like a man who had been paid a huge sum of money, and was expected to deliver.
Is that why he lets Putin go unchecked?
So I have to admit, I’m a simple Nobody. but these huge corporations and banks were bailed out by a Presidents, who FORCED the American people to pay for their criminal mistakes. Mistakes, caused by Presidents making certain decision affecting millions of people but putting billions into the pockets of those who continue to steal from us all.
I would love the Judge to explain this to me, because…I just don’t get it. Judge? I’m all ears. Either your WRONG…or I’m just too stupid to get it.
Anybody that has had a kid in Little Leagues knows the scenario of cheating all too well. So, I’m sorry. The all black team that won the Little League highest honor last year, and they won it by stacking the deck with kids that were not suppose to be on that team…should lose those trophies.
Unfair you say? The adults did it? Mmmm………
According to my brother, the decision by the little league officials was right: You won the game boys…you have that honor, but you don’t get the title.
My brother has raised his son through the league, and he and I were both raised in a different America. The coaches played by the rules. But not today. I don’t know how many times I’ve heard my brother talk about five-year olds playing against kids twice their sizes by 100 pounds. Or teams with sixteen-year olds playing against 13-year olds. The kids try, but they can’t compete.
Guess what? The coaches have been doing this all over America. They go and get the best talent to make it to the top. Little league has become VERY competitive.
It’s a shame. The kids know they can’t beat the stacked team. And don’t be fooled, ALL the parents are aware of what’s going on too. The team that won the little league trophy was from Chicago.
That should tell you all you need to know.
But today, I did not hear ONE person anywhere say that the kids should forfeit the little league trophy.
The reason? It’s not the kids fault. Okay, It’s not, I agree. BUT…..
Let’s assume that the kids didn’t know that some of the kids on the team were NOT from the same place. That the coach had handpicked winners from around the area, and broke the rules.
The very fact is, rules were broken. It doesn’t matter if it’s not their fault, if everyone forgives the kids because their black or they’re just kids, than the message is:
You CAN cheat. Adults can cheat. If they get caught, nothing happens to them.
Jesse Jackson has called anyone a racist who thinks that rules were broken.
Please. How about playing another card…like the joker.
The team that lost, should receive that trophy, with an apology from the coach.
And then the kids on that team would learn a lesson about cheating. They would never forget it, and it would make better citizens of them all. They will see what happens when “leaders” who cheat hurt the people they are supposed to be leading, and they hurt the citizen…by cheating.
You either have rules, or you don’t.
IN America, cheating is not only allowed, it’s admired. Obama cheats every single day. He stacks the deck. And America has suffered dearly for it.
Anyway, let’s hope the officials at Little League stick to their decision.
(Thanks to my brother for his excellent take on it, and for making me see all sides.)
Every year, I go to my annual checkup appointment, and every year my doctor insists on looking at my blood. So I go to my local lab that has all black nurses in it. Ferguson has left a bitter scar between blacks and whites around here, but since I’ve always treated people the same, no matter what ‘color’ they are, I don’t stop going to the “black” places because I’m white. If they get upset, it’s their problem.
Unless of course it’s suicidal. I stay away from Ferguson, downtown St. Louis, and places where the, “Do not come here if you have white skin” …but, here in the city of burned-out gas stations, I find that any black person who has a job, is not out to “hate honky.” They are paying the bills, and seeing the injustices like all the white people.
People are people. Some are smart, some…not so much. It’s 50/50. Some of them are nice, some of them are..not. It’s the same in most every country I imagine. It is what it is.
But, I’m getting away from the point. The black nurse with the red hair, was taking my blood, and started talking right away to me:
“You have a co-payment of $70 dollars, want to pay now?”
“No..it started out as $10, went to $40, then $60, now it’s $70? ” That’s all she needed. This hard-working black lady had a long list of complaints, and it was all about the economy.
She didn’t understand this new medical stuff. She now has to work two jobs to make ends meet. And she knows so many people who can’t afford Obamacare. Everyone’s deductible has gone sky-high. She had two daughters, and one was going to nursing school, and the other one lived in Chicago and could barely afford her tiny apartment. Food was so expensive. She had to go to two or three grocery stores just to buy what she needed to find the deals.
We both shook our heads and agreed…the country is going to hell, and what the HELL happened? I knew, and SHE knew, that Obama had screwed us all.
But, we didn’t say it. We both were afraid to say it. Who knows where the camera’s are?
But we are nobodies, so it was refreshing this week, to see the CEO of Gallup, Jim Clifton, expressed concern that he might not make it home for DARING to report that Obama’s jobs numbers are just plain…misleading. In other words, it’s a scam.

Okay, you get the drift. Our government lies to us daily.
Will it ever end?
If we ever needed a new blood transfusion. It’s now.
God help us.
