Look Who’s Talking About Obstruction Of Justice

Hillary.jpeg

One of those are you kidding me moments…

Hillary is talking about other people’s obstruction of justice


Wasn’t it her husband, Bill, who had a little talk with then U.S. Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, on the tarmac–with cameras and mics turned off–when the FBI was investigating her!


During the election, the crowds chanted “Lock her up!”


This isn’t about Democrat or Republican. 


Wherever you look, the politics seems so dirty and the corruption so deep. 


What happened to the soul of America and what we really stood for as a people and a nation?

Getting Past The Political Blame Game

Cup and Bowl.jpeg.jpg

Really liked this Japanese bowl and cup set–so cute. 


The head is the bowl, and the cup which holds all the water and has the handle is the body. 

The head is much bigger than the body, like people’s egos are bigger than their sense of responsibility. 


Today, I read again about some leaders blaming others for the world problems:


“Obama said Trump’s election and the U.K.’s vote to leave the EU were spawned by world leaders’ mishandling of globalization.”


Note, he blames these unspecified “world leaders,” with no attribution or responsibility to himself


To be clear, he is resolute that his policies and way of governing had no impact on the rise of President-elect Trump, his diametric opposite!


This is similar to Hillary Clinton blaming her election loss on the FBI Director investigating her, and not taking responsibility for her own lengthy history of scandals.


Again on Sunday, the New York Times blamed the gender-based, glass ceiling on Hillary’s defeat, rather than acknowledging the impact of the “corruption ceiling” that may have prevented her winning. 


And there is a long pattern of this blaming in politics whether for gridlock, the deficit, healthcare, divisiveness, violence in inner cities, terrorism, improprieties, distrust of government, and more. 


In the extreme, some leaders even blamed the U.S. people themselves for the suffering caused by radical Islamic terrorism!


Even in the recent election, some blamed their own constituents for insulting and ruining their legacy if they don’t go out and vote for his DNC hand-picked successor. 


Yet despite the endless blame game, Obama attacked Trump for whining and blaming rigged elections, saying that this demonstrated a lack of leadership or toughness to be president. 


But at the same time, he takes credit for everything good that happens: for ending Iraq war, for killing Bin Laden, for saving the world economy, for reforming our schools, for “stamping out” Ebola, for $2 gas, and even for the success of Fox news!


How wonderful (NOT) is this philosophy and practice of leadership:


If something good happens, you take the credit; If something bad happens, you blame someone else. 


That’s a very big head on top of that very narrow body. 😉

Mean WORDS Over Crooked DEEDS

Mean.jpeg

Nicholas Kristof wrote in the New York Times Sunday Review that “Donald Trump is Making America Meaner.”


And yes, anything that a Presidential candidate does that is bigoted or racist is wrong and should be utterly condemned. 


But what is concerning about Kristof and the liberal media’s coverage of the election has been it’s wholly one-sided nature and what that means in terms of election rigging. 


In fact, CNN recently admitted on the air that “We [CNN] could not help her [Hillary] any more than we have…we’re the biggest ones promoting her campaign”


Similarly, in this case, Kristof hammers Trump’s “harsh rhetoric” for things like wanting to build a border wall for Homeland Security, having a big loose mouth (too often), and not distancing himself from toxic advisers or followers. 


But interestingly enough, Kristof is silent about Clinton’s numerous acts of (alleged) debauchery, corruption, and scandal and what that means in terms of that candidate’s meanness! 


Some examples:


– Getting child rapists off the hook and laughing about it is not mean. 


– Protecting husband Bill in the face of 17 allegations of rape and affairs is not mean. 


– Endangering national security with secret email servers and the habitual lies to cover it up with a rating of “Four Pinocchios” is not mean.


– (Soft) Intimidation of the Attorney General and telling the Director of the FBI that he is full of “bull” is not mean. 


– DNC Collusion to rig the election against Bernie Sanders is not mean. 


– Money laundering, “pay to play” and cronyism through the Clinton Foundation is not mean. 


– Enabling racial divisiveness in America and the killing of civilians and police officers is not mean. 


– Not protecting those Americans murdered in Benghazi and making up a phony story about it being because of a video that is not mean. 


– 47 people associated with the Clintons involved in murder-suicides that is not mean. 


– Allowing Chemical Weapons use against civilians in Syria and not enforcing the “red line” is not mean.


– Making dangerous nuke deals with Axis of Evil, Iran, the #1 state sponsor of terrorism and human rights abuses is not mean. 


– Sowing terrorism, war, refugees, and crises around the globe that is not mean. 


I suppose what is most amazing is that while Trump has sharp words with and for people, Hillary stands accused of actually doing many absolutely horrible (“mean”) deeds affecting all of America and much of the world. 


Interestingly, someone posted on Facebook yesterday the following:

“I’m voting for the candidate who got people killed, covered sexual assaults, and threatened national security, because the other one said mean things.”


Yes the liberal media are themselves so biased and mean by not holding wrongdoers like the Clintons accountable and not treating the candidates equally and the election in a fair and balanced manner…we should all be very concerned by this mind-numbing brainwashing and absolute treachery by those that are supposed to be looking out for us. 


Maybe Kristof and others in the liberal media need to look at themselves in the mirror at what meanness and corruption they are creating and how dangerous that is to America. 😉

Targeting The Opposition

Targeting The Opposition

As I would imagine most of you felt this week, I was really surprised by news that individuals in the IRS targeted certain political opposition groups.

I thought to myself what country are we living in?

I couldn’t help wondering about disturbing stories from Russia, Iran, and others where political dissidents have been known to be jailed, shot, or otherwise disposed of.

Are we getting to the point (hopefully not) where our government institutions could likewise be used to unfair political advantage?

In the Watergate scandal in 1972, the Republicans broke into the National Democratic Headquarters to install microphones and copy documents unfairly and illegally.

Forty years later–is this an IRSgate 2012?

Both Democrats and Republicans have their political opinions–and everyone is entitled to believe what they do and feel an affinity to and vote for who they want–or if you don’t like either, vote for a 3rd party Independent–this is what makes America great.

We have freedom to believe what we will, to vote as we will, and to do so without interference or undue influence by either side or anyone.

If we cross the line into intimidation or oppression of those who peacefully choose a different position, then we have lost the best of our national identity and the human rights that we so justly uphold. 😉
