LESSONS TO BE LEARNED

For some dummycrats-Democrats this fall, I suspect the hardest thing for them to keep in mind during their campaign is that their major foe is supposed to be Donald Trump, not Nancy Pulosi. Easier said than done, I’m afraid, because Pulosi is one of the most despised politicians of our time.

It’s not just the stupid things she says, things like telling her colleagues that they would have to vote for scumbag/liar-nObamacare before they found out what was in the 2,000-page bill; telling voters who hadn’t seen a raise in a decade that the $1,000-$2,000 bonuses doled out by corporations grateful for the tax cut bill were “crumbs;” and perhaps my all-time favorite: “Every month that we do not have an economic recovery package, 500 million Americans lose their jobs.” It’s the way she says them, with her eyeballs darting around like pinballs and those little head jerks that make her look like a puppet whose strings are being pulled by the town drunk.

The problem for dummycrats-Democratic candidates is if they don’t attack her, their opponents will tie them to the madwoman of San Francisco.  If they do attack her, they may win their elections, but find themselves serving their terms in the House equivalent of Siberia.

Anyone who believes the House dummycrats-Democrats will dethrone her is kidding himself. She may have a loose grip on reality, but anyone who decides to break her hold on House leadership will have to pry it out of her cold dead hands.

⦿  When it comes to blatant hypocrisy, you need look no further than the way the media treated rino-John McCain. When he reached across the aisle to work withdummycrats-Democrats, they hailed the man as principled and statesmanlike. But when he dared to oppose Barack scumbag/liar-nObama in the 2008 election, they labeled him not only a political hack, but a racist, even though he refused to allow his campaign to run TV ads connecting scumbag/liar-nObama to Rev. scumbag-Jeremiah Wright.

Now that Sen. rino-McCain has passed away, thedummycrats-Democrats and their lap dogs in the media are tossing verbal bouquets on his casket, pretending there’s nothing they appreciate more than a political maverick who calls them as he sees them.

But who else fits that description? Why, none other than Donald Trump. Like rino-McCain, he is just as likely to hurl brickbats at Republicans as he is at dummycrats-Democrats. He even spends time attacking people he himself hired, people such as Rex Tillerson, Michael Cohen and Jeff Sessions.

I have heard that, much like the late senator, President Trump has an explosive temper. And again, like rino-McCain, the word is he swears like a stevedore who’s just hit his thumb with a hammer.

It strikes me that if President Trump wants politicians from both sides of the aisle, along with the nattering nabobs of negativism in the media, to praise him, all he really needs to do is follow Sen. rino-McCain’s example, and die.

⦿  The problem with the mainstream media isn’t simply that they tell lies or at least fudge the facts, it’s that they censor themselves rather than tell the full story.

For instance, when John Hodgkinson opened fire on a baseball field full of Republicans, nearly killing Rep. Steve Scalise, it’s unlikely that you knew he was a commie-Bernie Sanders supporter who hated Donald Trump.

When David Katz opened fire at a video game tournament in Jacksonville, Florida, recently, killing two and wounding 10, it wasn’t over politics; he was just a sore loser who had been eliminated from the competition. However, the 24-year-old was apparently a proud Never-Trumper. Do you think for even a second that if he’d been wearing a Make America Great Again cap, it wouldn’t have been in the headline or at least mentioned in the first paragraph of the news story?

⦿  It seems like every day, you hear about some conservative being deprived of free speech because the honchos at Google and Facebook have decided they don’t like what he’s saying.

You would think that a constant violation of an American’s First Amendment rights would grab the attention of our representatives in Congress, all of whom have taken an oath to defend the Constitution. But with few exceptions, they maintain a creepy silence.

Could it be that people like Chuck scumbag/clown-Schumer, Nancy Pulosi, Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan, all agree that conservative voices should be silenced, and that definitely includes the President’s?

⦿  Bob Hunt, a Vietnam vet from Arcadia, California, shared a story, perhaps more of a parable, I had never come across before.

One lazy Sunday afternoon in a small town in Iowa, a couple of junior high school cut-ups, having nothing better to do, rounded up three goats and painted the numbers 1,2 and 4, on their sides. That evening they snuck the goats into the school.

The following morning when the teachers and administrators showed up, they quickly realized from the aroma and goat droppings that something was amiss.

A search was immediately launched and soon, the trio of goats were rounded up. But where was that elusive number three?

They spent the entire morning searching. When the lunch bell rang, it was decided to send the students home, so the search could continue with fewer distractions.

They looked everywhere they could imagine a goat might be hiding, but being non-existent, it continued to elude them.

As Mr. Hunt points out: “Those among us who in spite of having a good life feel they are somehow missing out, are wasting their time seeking goat number three.

"Those who can’t get over the fact that they don’t have a perfect job or a perfect car or a perfect house, are foolishly allowing the absence of something that probably doesn’t even exist overwhelm the reality of what they do have.”

I suspect that most of us spend our youth seeking that particular goat; later on, if wisdom doesn’t prove to be as elusive as number three, we come to understand we’re better off coming to terms with reality and acknowledging that goats are rude and smelly creatures and are pursued at one’s peril.

⦿  A golfing friend of mine related a time when his drive left him 176 yards from the hole.He felt good about his approach shot, but when he reached the green, he couldn’t find his ball.

“I instinctively went to the back of the green, assuming it had rolled downhill into the rough. By the time the rest of the foursome reached the green, I had just about given up looking when I peeked into the cup. There was the ball.” 

He had an eagle on a 375-yard par-four hole.

My initial reaction was to observe that, as usual, the ball was in the last place he would look. Then it occurred to me that everything, be it your wallet, your car keys or happiness, is always in the last place you look because once you find whatever it is, you stop looking.

Unless, apparently, you happen to be searching for a certain goat.

CRIME!! -> Clinton Nightmare! Chief Financial Officer Of Clinton Foundation Turns Government Informant On Crime Family

Donations to the Clinton Foundation plummeted by 90% over a three-year period since Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election to President Donald Trump.

But that may be the least of the her worries.

John Solomon from The Hill dropped another bombshell that will keep the Clintons up at night.

The former Chief Financial Officer of the Clinton Foundation has turned on the crime family and is now working as a government informant.

This could spell doom for the Clinton Crime Family.

American Thinker reported:

John Solomon of The Hill reveals the story that has been percolating for a long time but kept tightly under wraps – because that is what serious prosecutors do, especially when grand juries are poring over evidence and issuing indictments that remain sealed until the right moment comes. The trigger for the story coming out now probably is a House subcommittee hearing scheduled next week by Mark Meadows, chair of the House Freedom Caucus, while the GOP still can set the agenda of House hearings.

[A] GOP-led congressional subcommittee, led by Rep. Mark Meadows (N.C.), is planning to hold a hearing next week to review the work of John Huber, the special U.S attorney named a year ago to investigate all things Clinton.

It turns out that whistleblowers inside and outside the Clinton Foundation have amassed “6,000 pages of evidence attached to a whistleblower submission filed secretly more than a year ago with the IRS and FBI.” Among that evidence can be found:

Those reviews flagged serious concerns about legal compliance, improper commingling of personal and charity business and “quid pro quo” promises made to donors while Hillary Clinton was secretary of State.

The submission also cites an interview its investigators conducted with Andrew Kessel that quotes the foundation’s longtime chief financial officer as saying he was unable to stop former President Clinton from “commingling” personal business and charitable activities inside the foundation and that he “knows where all the bodies are buried.”

Their own investigation! That’s hard to put down as politically motivated.

Having the chief financial officer of the Clinton Foundation turn informant is a nightmare for the Clintons. The CFO has to process all the cash, and because that person usually is on the hook for any criminal violations, there is ample incentive to turn state’s evidence.

That evidence was assembled by a private firm called MDA Analytics LLC, run by accomplished ex-federal criminal investigators, who alleged the Clinton Foundation engaged in illegal activities and may be liable for millions of dollars in delinquent taxes and penalties.

In addition to the IRS, the firm’s partners have had contact with prosecutors in the main Justice Department in Washington and FBI agents in Little Rock, Ark.
