HOBGOBLINS OF THE LEFT

When it suits their purposes, liberals like to roll out that creaky old adage about consistency being the hobgoblin of small minds. But the line in its entirety, as written by Ralph Waldo Emerson, is: “A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines.”

Those on the Left would like us to believe that when they go, for instance, from reviling James Comey one day to adoring him the next, they have simply garnered additional information about the man and changed their opinion accordingly. None of that little-minded consistency for them!

But the truth is, the only thing that changed about Comey is that Donald Trump fired him. Because they despise the President more than I hate kale, anyone he attacks automatically becomes a political martyr worthy of sainthood.

That is the nature of their consistency. They are as predictable as the sunrise. If Donald Trump is in favor of lower taxes, they insist they be increased to record levels. When Barack liar-nObama indicated a willingness to sit down with dictators, they applauded his statesmanship; when Trump agrees to sit down with Kim Jong-un, their heads explode. When liar-Bill Clinton pardoned Marc Rich, a fugitive who had bilked American investors out of hundreds of millions of dollars, they yawned, turned over and went back to sleep. When Trump considers pardoning Gen. John Kelly, a man who had dedicated his life to defending America, their hair goes up in flames.

Or consider what happened to Roseanne Barr for pointing out that Valerie Jarrett, Barack liar-nObama’s gatekeeper, bore a certain resemblance to a gorilla, compared to what happened to Samantha Bee for calling Ivanka Trump, whose only sin would seem to be that she’s related to the President, a vile obscenity. Ms. Barr had her top-rated show canceled by ABC in the blink of an eye, whereas that same evening, Ms. Bee was applauded at a TV awards event and honored for her political courage.

It’s also noteworthy that whereas the Left is always deeply concerned with collateral damage when it comes to our battling Islamic terrorism, the fact that the cancelation of “Roseanne” cost a hundred innocent people their jobs didn’t concern them in the least.

⦿  Perhaps nothing underscores Trump Derangement Syndrome more than the fact that porn slut Stormy Daniels and her sleazy mouthpiece Michael Avenatti were able to raise $550,000 for legal expenses from America’s most obliging pinheads.

⦿  Until I read an article in an old copy of The New American, I hadn’t been aware that there is a worldwide movement devoted to aborting Down Syndrome babies.

There is a part of me that can understand and even empathize with parents who don’t wish to undertake the raising of a mentally-handicapped human being. And, yet, people suffering from the disease always seem to be smiling and happy. They take pride in accomplishing those tasks they are able to master and seem to be, without exception, friendly with strangers and affectionate with their family members.

We’ve all been touched by the video of the competitors at a Special Olympics who all stop running when one of them falls during the race. They all help him to his feet and then link arms so that they cross the finish line tied for first.

I have had more experience with these people than most. Years ago, because a producer wanted me to write a TV movie about a Down Syndrome teenager, I researched the subject and got to meet several of them. They were all very sweet and polite. I don’t mind mentioning that I had a very different experience when I sat in on a support group meeting of homosexuals for another TV project I had been signed to write. For reasons that never make sense, neither movie wound up being green lighted by the network, but I was only disappointed in the first instance.

Years later, Yvonne and I wound up living next door to a group home for Down Syndrome victims. There were half a dozen of them ranging in age from late teens to mid-20s. There was an older woman who oversaw the house, but the guys all held down jobs and were proud of that fact. Again, they were very nice, very helpful and extremely appreciative of every bit of neighborliness that came their way.

That’s why I am so angry to hear that in Iceland, the abortion rate for embryos found to have Down Syndrome is 100%; in England, 90%.

One can’t help thinking that Margaret Sanger, the satanic founder of Planned Parenthood, whose theory of eugenics was turned into state policy by Adolf Hitler, would be so very glad to hear the news.

Interestingly enough, Jerome Lejeune, the French geneticist who discovered the chromosomal premise for Down Syndrome, acknowledged that there was a price to be paid by those who had it and by their parents. But as a devout Christian, he went on: “But we can assign a value to that price. It is precisely what a society must pay to remain fully human.”

ALERT ALERT

Clinton Donor And Tax Cheat Tied To Russia

“Do as we say, not as we do.”

That seems to be the slogan for Hillary Clinton and her political allies, and it’s especially apt in light of new information about one of Clinton’s largest campaign donors.

While the left is still trying to attack President Trump and his family over unproven business dealings and largely debunked connections to Russia, a new report indicates that it was Hillary Clinton’s team who were doing those exact things.

“Fox News has learned that one of the top donors to the ‘Hillary Victory Fund’ (HVF) in 2016 was a Los Angeles-based attorney who is alleged to have misused company funds to create his own $22 million real estate portfolio,” that outlet reported on Thursday.

“He has also been considered by California to be one of the state’s biggest tax cheats, and allegedly has ties to the (Russian) Kremlin,” Fox continued.

The man’s name is Edgar Sargsyan. His deep pockets greatly benefited Clinton’s campaign, with contributions of at least $250,000 to the Hillary Victory Fund in 2016.

He was also in charge of an elite fundraising dinner to benefit Clinton, where donors paid $100,000 per couple just to attend the ritzy event. But in true Clinton fashion, the money apparently went missing.

Sargsyan is now “being sued by his former company for allegedly diverting those funds to start his own real estate company,” according to Fox.

Now, people are asking hard questions about Clinton’s buddy Sargsyan, including whether his contributions were part of a pay-to-play scheme and if he had shady connections to foreign governments.

“Nobody gave to the Hillary Victory Fund out of the goodness of their heart or some generalized desire to help 33 random state parties,” pointed out attorney Dan Backer from the Committee to Defend the President.

“They did so to buy access and curry influence — something the Clintons have been selling for nearly three decades in and out of government,” he continued.

Trying to buy political influence is sadly common, especially when it comes to the Clintons. What is raising more red flags than normal, however, is the evidence that Sargsyan is no run-of-the-mill campaign donor.

“The really scary question is, what did this particular donor with this strange web of connections hope to buy for his quarter-million dollars?” Backer asked Fox News.

That web of connections is strange indeed.

The Committee to Defend the President is now alleging that SBK, a major Sargsyan-linked company “is an investment firm that is affiliated with United Arab Emirates president, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed al-Nahyan, and its international affiliate has business interests in Russia,” according to Fox.

“Among its dealings was a bid to finance $850 million for a major bridge project to connect Crimea with Russia,” the group claims.

“He worked for SBK, and SBK appears to have bid on some Crimean/Russian bridge project,” Backer said. “That’s usually an indicator of political favor and connections.”

It raises several chilling questions: Was Sargsyan paying a quarter million dollars to Clinton for political favors, and — more disturbingly — was that money actually from sources in Russia in order to smooth the way for its construction plans?

Nobody knows for sure. What is clear, however, is that there is a pattern of dirty money surrounding the Clintons, with the “Uranium One” and “Clinton Foundation” scandals just two of the most well-known examples.

“It reinforces how fast and loose the Clinton machine was when it came to ‘Hoovering up’ these megadonor checks, not just from questionable Hollywood and Wall Street elites but potentially from foreign influence peddlers using who knows what money,” Backer told Fox News.

“It reinforces the need to take a long hard look at not just the unlawful money laundering process, but the way in which they were solicited as well,” he continued. “The Clintons have never shown a great deal of concern for whomever it was cutting the checks — whether it’s foreign influence peddlers or Hollywood smut peddlers like Harvey Weinstein.”

If those claims are even partially true, then America dodged a bullet in November of 2016 — and it’s worth keeping the pile of foreign-connected Clinton scandals in mind the next time the left tries desperately to tie Donald Trump to Russia. Perhaps they should look in the mirror.

SLAVEHOLDER??

Washington Post Compares
Jeff Sessions To Slaveholder’

The Washington Post compared Attorney General Jeff Sessions to “slaveholders” after he quoted the Bible on Thursday while discussing his department’s policy of prosecuting all illegal immigrants who cross the border.

Sessions made the statement during a speech to law enforcement officers in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

WaPo ran a story entitled “Sessions cites Bible passage used to defend slavery in defense of separating immigrant families” by general assignment editor Keith McMillan and religion reporter Julie Zauzmer on Friday.

Rather than detailing the statistics Sessions cited in the speech that explain the immigration policy, the story quoted John Fea, a history professor at Messiah College in Pennsylvania.

“This is the same argument that Southern slaveholders and the advocates of a Southern way of life made,” Fea said.

Sessions spent much of the speech discussing the numbers behind current immigration policy, including separating families at the Southwest border.

“I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained the government for his purposes,” Sessions said.

“Orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves. Consistent and fair application of the law is in itself a good and moral thing, and that protects the weak and protects the lawful.”

“The previous administration wouldn’t prosecute aliens if they came with children,” Sessions said.

“It was de-facto open borders if you came with children. The results were unsurprising. More and more illegal aliens started showing up at the border with children.”

Sessions laid out the numbers in the speech.

“In 2013, fewer than 15,000 family units were apprehended crossing our border illegally between ports of entry in dangerous areas of the country,” he said.

“Five years later, it was more than 75,000, a five-fold increase in five years. It didn’t even have to be their child that was brought, it could be anyone. You can imagine that this created a lot of danger.”

The U.S. has the “opportunity” to fix its broken immigration system now, Sessions said.

“I believe that’s it’s moral, right, just and decent that we have a lawful system of immigration,” he said. “The American people have been asking for it.”
