Hillary Clinton’s email scandal: media bias and the fall of a candidate

March 30, 2016, 2:33 pm

UPDATE: “Federal prosecutors investigating the possible mishandling of classified materials on Hillary Clinton’s private email server have begun the process of setting up formal interviews with some of her longtime and closest aides … Prosecutors also are expected to seek an interview with Clinton herself …”

“… the [Washington] Post summation makes clear that the mainstream press had almost nothing to do with uncovering the truth or advancing the story [of Hillary's email scandal]. …

So says Investor’s Business Daily (IBD) in an erudite op-ed headline story entitled “Clinton Email Scandal: How A Biased Press Tried To Ignore It.” Is it acceptable — even surprising — for many mainstream media titans to have willfully attempted to manipulate the outcome of a U.S. presidential election? Obviously, it is not acceptable — and I see more bias in “journalism” now than I ever have in my life. If Hillary Clinton were an average American, i.e., not a member of powerful dynastic family nor a former holder of high office, she would have already been indicted for damaging national security — at least have been forced to withdraw her candidacy for the U.S. presidency. (Our current two-party system has created many obstacles to prevent “little” or “average” people from getting anywhere near a position in high public office.) IBD editors paint a detailed, sordid, and well-documented portrait of America’s news media blatantly clearing a path for Hillary, whom they knew was and is most likely a felon, to become President of the United States:

… No one reading the [Washington] Post’s 5,000-word account can come away thinking that the Clinton email scandal is unimportant.

The FBI now has 147 agents chasing down leads. A key person involved in the scandal has been granted immunity. Hillary Clinton — who has already been caught in several lies — might be questioned by federal agents. There are fairly obvious violations of the law, even if it’s just those governing record-keeping. And there were, and continue to be, concerns that national security secrets were compromised, or at least casually disregarded. …

IBD does rightfully credit the Washington Post for reporting so thoroughly on Clinton’s flagrant flaunting of national security protocols. IBD itself appears 5th in a list of the “Top 5 U.S. Daily Newspapers with Paywalls” and 11th in a list of the “Top 25 U.S. Daily Newspaper Digital Editions.” We do thankfully still have at least some semblance of a free press. It is ironic that most media bias is driven by a philosophical/political agenda or plain greed, and is generally not a result of government coercion.

Hillary’s ability to, at least so far, walk on water is a symptom of the sad state of affairs in American politics: 1) too many citizens have disengaged from voting and grassroots activism, willfully or passively shirking their civic duty to protect democracy; and, 2) because citizens have disengaged, the U.S. has developed a professional political elite class, beholden mostly to the lobbyists with the fattest wallets and seeking to stay in office forever. George Orwell concluded his brilliant treatise Animal Farm with these words (you can read the whole book here):

… All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others. … Twelve voices were shouting in anger, and they were all alike. No question, now, what had happened to the faces of the pigs. The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.

As a nation, we’ve allowed some citizens to be more equal than others. We’ve allowed certain power-hungry individuals to obtain much more control over fellow citizens than our Founders intended (“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal…”). Letting another Clinton walk upon water would be an enormous mistake and would set a very undemocratic precedent. But there still may be hope.

Our national government still has some checks and balances. When Hillary and then-Senator Barack Obama were vying against each other for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008, the two candidates and campaigns often traded vitriolic and acrimonious barbs. These solar system-sized egos bruise easily. Hillary has often distanced herself from Obama during the current 2016 race. The FBI is currently conducting a large-scale investigation of Clinton. As headlines continually announce new revelations of Hillary’s alleged crimes, the pressure will mount on the White House to steer clear of meddling with the FBI’s investigation:

A former U.S. attorney predicted this week that Hillary Clinton “will not make it to the finish line” in 2016 because she will soon be facing a criminal indictment from the FBI. During an appearance on Laura Ingraham’s radio show Tuesday, famed attorney Joseph DiGenova said that the FBI has “reached a critical mass in their investigation of the secretary and all of her senior staff” and predicted that it would come to a head “in the next 60 days.”

DiGenova, who rose to national prominence during the Clinton scandals of the ’90s, told Ingraham that if Attorney General Loretta Lynch refuses to indict Clinton, there will be a “massive revolt inside the FBI, which she will not be able to survive as an Attorney General.”

FBI Director James Comey has not indicated when his agents will wrap up their months-long probe into Clinton’s possibly illegal “homebrew” email server, but during a Senate hearing last month, he said the FBI doesn’t “give a rip about politics” and that President Obama has not been briefed on the investigation.

DiGenova said that the FBI already “has so much information about criminal conduct by her and her staff that there is no way that they walk away from this.” …

Hillary’s “Emailgate” is ethically too big to sweep under the carpet. Will it be too big politically to sweep under the rug?

The Associated Press: A history of collaboration with dictator-murderers (Nazis)

March 30, 2016, 10:55 am

Is it any surprise that “Since 2007, the majority of Americans have had little or no trust in the mass media?” We regularly see the Associated Press (AP), media icon and household name, smearing Israel and sanitizing Islamist terror, and recently learned of the AP’s collaboration with North Korea. Now we discover that this is no modern-day phenomena; this is the history of the AP:

The Associated Press news agency entered a formal cooperation with the Hitler regime in the 1930s, supplying American newspapers with material directly produced and selected by the Nazi propaganda ministry, archive material unearthed by a German historian has revealed. …

AP also allowed the Nazi regime to use its photo archives for its virulently antisemitic propaganda literature. Publications illustrated with AP photographs include the bestselling SS brochure “Der Untermensch” (“The Sub-Human”) and the booklet “The Jews in the USA”, which aimed to demonstrate the decadence of Jewish Americans with a picture of New York mayor Fiorello LaGuardia eating from a buffet with his hands. …

AP helped produce Nazi Der Untermensch (The Sub-Human)

It seems that the AP’s most recent best-buddy dictator-murderer is North Korean leader Kim Jong-un:

… In 2014, Washington-based website NK News alleged that top executives at AP had in 2011 “agreed to distribute state-produced North Korean propaganda through the AP name” in order to gain access to the highly profitable market of distributing picture material out of the totalitarian state. The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea comes second from bottom in the current World Press Freedom Index.

A leaked draft agreement showed that AP was apparently willing to let the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) handpick one text and one photo journalist from its agitation and propaganda unit to work in its bureau. AP told the Guardian that “it would be presumptuous to assume ‘the draft’ has any significance”, but declined to disclose further information on the final agreement. …

While we find ourselves often ascribing media bias to motives like philosophical or political agendas, it is most likely avarice — cold, hard cash — that motivates this unethical behavior.

California public schools teaching “There is no god but Allah?”

March 19, 2016, 12:36 pm

It seems that public school curriculum is to be cleansed of all religious content — except in the case of Islam. In the “progressive” or “liberal” zeal to enforce multiculturalism, Islam has been made more equal and exceptional than other religions. (One has to wonder if the progressives’ are panicking in a fear-driven effort to appease the world’s angry and violent Islamists.)

Some parents in Manhattan Beach, California are rightfully concerned about their community’s public school system trying to brainwash their child. “They say they recently discovered their son’s homework assignments on Islam were more about actually learning the faith than the history. One question asked him to right down teachings on the Quran.” The reporter’s cameraman documented homework assignment questions like, “What are some of the teachings of the Quran?” The father found that his son had written down answers like “the one true god Allah” and “all people must submit to Allah.” Another question captured on the video was “What are the Five Pillars [of Islam]?” The first pillar listed was Shahada, which means “There is no god but Allah; Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.”

Yes, many Americans are plain stupid about sharia law

March 19, 2016, 10:06 am

“Sure, why not?” So happily blurt several California WOMEN about the possibility that Hillary Clinton would allow the imposition of (Stone Age) Muslim “law” in the U.S. I’ve watched the video shown below several times… None (none) of these people even know what Islamic sharia law means (misogyny, hatred, violence, intolerance). The interviewees feel an intense need to show that they are “progressive.” They don’t want to admit that they don’t know what they’re talking about (except for one, but she caved eventually). Too many people have succumbed to complacent ignorance, group-think, and/or the constant deluge of misinformation produced by the mainstream media, academia, the elite political class, social institutions… It’s really scary to see such blatant foolishness — especially watching WOMEN mindlessly accepting sharia, a belief system much of which is dedicated to misogyny. Note: According Pew Research (2015), Americans “know little or nothing about Islam.” Ignorance is not bliss. Sharia law is antithetical to all liberties that sane, common-sense Americans hold dear.

The (Ugly, Distorted, Hateful, Violent) Truth About the Palestinians

March 18, 2016, 10:32 pm

The Israeli-American Council (IAC) has produced a polished and concise audio-visual summary of “Palestinian” “history” — about a fabricated, supposed ethnic group with a phony and badly-manufactured history (shown below). Indeed, the Arabs whom the Israelis have been forced to manage don’t even call themselves “Arabs.” The word “Palestinian” refers to peoples of Aegean or Anatolian origins — literally, the biblical Philistines — who invaded Israel and harassed the indigenous Jews. It was the despicable Roman Emperor Hadrian who murdered 600,000 Jews and then “renamed” the Jewish homeland as “Syria Palaestina.” Hadrian sought to permanently punish Jews by renaming their sacred homeland after the traditional enemies of the Jewish people, the Philistines. Sane people know that Jews have CONTINUOUSLY lived in Israel for AT LEAST 3,000 years. You can hardly take a step in Israel without turning over some Jewish archaeological evidence. Arabs, Mohammad’s ruffians, didn’t conquer Israel until the 7th century AD. Most “Palestinians” immigrated to Israel during the 19th and 20th centuries. The UNITED NATIONS mandated the birth of “modern” Israel. Finally, for Pete’s sake — as in Saint Peter — Jesus was a Jew, not a Philistine. He was called Rabbi, Amen, Messiah, Christ, and Mar. PLEASE WATCH:

PLEASE SHARE THIS AND HELP FIGHT THE CONSTANT ATTEMPTS BY “PROGRESSIVES” AND THEIR ALLIES TO DE-LEGITIMIZE ISRAEL.

Mizzou Professor Click fired: First Amendment win and a call to action

February 28, 2016, 4:11 pm

The University of Missouri is firing professor Melissa Click. She was caught on video (Figure 1 below) trying to stop a student journalist from exercising his First Amendment right to report on a public event. In the video, Click called for “muscle” — threatening to physically assault the journalist — to stop him from reporting. What was she so afraid of? The truth? Then she was again documented on video cursing at police officers just doing their jobs. This is the sad state of affairs in American “academia.” BUT THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI BOARD VOTED TO FIRE THIS CRAZY BULLY, stating:

… “The circumstances surrounding Dr. Click’s behavior, both at a protest in October when she tried to interfere with police officers who were carrying out their duties, and at a rally in November, when she interfered with members of the media and students who were exercising their rights in a public space and called for intimidation against one of our students, we believe demands serious action.” …

CALL TO ACTION: DO NOT LET CLICK GET AWAY WITH THIS DISTURBING BEHAVIOR: Please email/call/fax the University of Missouri Board of Curators and encourage them to stand firm on their decision to fire “Professor” Click and to reject any attempts she makes to appeal her firing. Contact the board via email at boardofcurators@umsystem.edu, via phone at (573) 882-2388, and via fax at (573) 882-0010.

Sign Petition: Block President Obama’s Nominee for the Supreme Court

February 23, 2016, 7:49 pm

ONE-CLICK: ACT NOW TO Block President Obama’s Nominee for the Supreme Court. Fill in your name, email, zip, and let Heritage send this message to your senators. This country is so out of balance, the last thing we need is a Supreme Court hell-bent on “progressive” judicial activism. We need a balance of powers.

The Constitution just says that the President, “by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint … Judges of the supreme Court…” Note that regarding the Constitution, “There’s no timeline nor guideline for how to hold confirmation proceedings. The Constitution doesn’t even say how big the court needs to be…” Now let’s refute all the Democratic Party’s bullying (nonsense) as to why Republicans must obey “King” Obama.

How about “Flashback: Senate Democrats in 1960 pass resolution against election-year Supreme Court recess appointments” … or … “Democrats’ behavior in 1987-88 — when they engaged in shameful character assassination against Robert Bork … one of the most consequential triumphs of Senate obstructionism in our lifetimes”? How about “Joe Biden in 1992: No nominations to the Supreme Court in an election year” … and finally, “FLASHBACK: In 2007, Schumer Called For Blocking All Bush Supreme Court Nominations”?

Murder of innocents: ‘Muslims kill dogs and puppies with acid injections’

January 22, 2016, 9:22 pm

By Andrew L. Jaffee

Islamic traditions from the Hadith prohibit Islamists from owning or engaging with dogs, with certain exceptions. Not only are dogs abhorred but they are brutally killed.

It is important to understand that no PETA, Human Society, SPCA, animal rights or rescue groups exist in Islamic countries.

No legal protections against animal cruelty exist in Islamic countries where the common practice is killing dogs and puppies with acid injections. Acid chemically burns and destroys internal organs and tissues while also causing extreme metabolic disturbance (acidosis) and brutally, painfully kills the animal. …

Thanks to Bethany Blankley of Constitution.com for educating us on the historical/cultural practice of animal cruelty routinely inflicted by Islamists. She found contemporary audio-visual evidence of Muslims perpetrating — and reveling in — whole-scale, premeditated torture of animals. Blankley documented Islamic jurisprudence from the Hadith “justifying” cruelty against animals, and of course cruelty against non-Muslims (or Muslims who don’t fit certain “rules” of orthodoxy).

Oh, what horror of horrors — unadulterated evil — committed against the purest of innocents, little sweet mutts and puppies, by Muslims. Many Americans have come to know what unspeakable ultra-violence comes from the Muslim world on a daily basis, but when they see the video in this post, they will be shocked beyond belief. Yes, this video is incredibly disturbing, but civilized people must know the truth — especially with a foolish U.S. president and congress allowing “nearly 300,000 Muslim migrants [into the U.S.] in the next 12 months alone, including roughly 170,000 who will be permanently resettled within the country.”

“WARNING: animal cruelty and torture of dogs is seen and heard on this video.”

On Islamic rationalization of terror against living beings:

… In Sahih Al-Bukhari Volume 7, Book 77, Hadith 843, Islamists are warned, “Angels will not enter a house that contains a dog …”

From Sahih Muslim, Book 10, Hadith 3813, Jabir bin Abdullah explains:

“Allah’s Messenger … ordered us to kill dogs, and we carried out this order so much so that we also killed a dog coming with a woman from the desert. Then Allah’s Apostle … forbade their killing. He [the Holy Prophet further] said: ‘It is [however] your duty to kill the jet-black [dog] having two spots [on the eyes], for it is a devil.’” …

However, the fact remains that “moderate Muslims” and Shari’a law provide no protections for dogs from being tortured and killed from acid injections. And the same is true for people.

Several Islamic countries enforce a hijab dress code only for women, and violators are punished with “acid attacks.”

Extra-judicial enforcement of hijab rules includes what human rights activists call “Vigilante Violence,” or acid attacks. Numerous incidents have been reported of unidentified men “flinging acid into the faces of women with whom they had no history of personal grudges.” Assailants claim they were defending hijab.

If not killed, those leaving Islam and/or have converted to Christianity are also attacked with acid.

Introspection on how ‘Trump Could Win It All’

January 16, 2016, 3:40 am

By Andrew L. Jaffee

Editor’s note: This is not an endorsement or a denouncement of Donald Trump. The author is seeking insight into the popularity and success of Trump as a political candidate.

Donald Trump’s ability to draw a crowd has flabbergasted even one of left-leaning MSNBC’s talk-show hosts, Joe Scarborough, who took to national airwaves to say the billionaire is beating all records — that his ability to pack a room with eager listeners exceeds anything even much-loved Ronald Reagan could do. …

“I saw Reagan come to Pensacola twice in 1980. I saw the crowds. I never saw anything like that in my hometown before. …”

Earlier this week, Trump attracted “a capacity crowd of nearly 12,000 at the Pensacola Bay Center on Florida’s panhandle.” Pensacola has a population of about 53,000 souls. Many, many Americans are fed up with, angry at, and/or disillusioned with Washington. It was not surprising to see a U.S. News & World Report story stating that “Trump Could Win It All: A new survey shows a sizable number of Democrats ready to defect from Hillary Clinton to Donald Trump.” Another recent study found that “Polls may actually underestimate Trump’s support” among Republican voters, showing that 40% may back The Donald. Whether people like Trump or not, agree with him or disagree, he has been willing to highlight some of this country’s most vexing — and to some, “controversial” — problems, like immigration and terrorism. He has proposed some controversial solutions to this nation’s predicaments. The vocabulary Trump has used in speaking about America’s dilemmas has been, prima facie and at times offensive, vague, and inaccurate. The terminology Trump has used when elucidating his proposals for resolving this country’s crises — and the logic behind his proposals — have also been, at times and prima facie irrational, offensive, vague, and inaccurate. Putting politically correct disclaimers aside, Trump’s rhetoric and platform are likely resonating harmonically with many Americans’ very well-founded concerns about the existential threats to this great republic.

Therein lies the rub: many Americans (71%) are tired of political correctness being shoved down their throats; tired of a narcissistic congress working for lobbyists and ignoring constituents; tired of a megalomaniac president; tired of watching an entitlement-seeking mob drag down a once-great republic; and tired of a mainstream media pumping out propaganda and morally bankrupt “entertainment.” Yes, Virginia, there is a “silent majority” and they don’t want to be betrayed again by some Washington insider(s). They are interested in listening to someone like Trump who isn’t owned by anybody and doesn’t need anyone else’s money. These are qualities that appeal to decent American folks — qualities now abhorrent to many of America’s power-brokers (they have to own their peons).

GOP leadership has different immigration stories — one in English and one in Spanish

January 14, 2016, 7:52 pm

In their response(s) to President Obama’s State of the Union address, GOP leadership had one story on immigration in English and another in Spanish. In the English version, we heard about “stopping illegal immigration.” In the Spanish version, Republicans seem to be hinting at amnesty (“offer a permanent and human solution to those who live in the shadows”), again betraying conservative principles. From the Miami Herald:

The Republican Party’s immigration split was reflected Tuesday in the two responses hand-picked party members gave — one in English, one in Spanish — to President Obama‘s final State of the Union address. …

Here’s what South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley said in English:

No one who is willing to work hard, abide by our laws, and love our traditions should ever feel unwelcome in this country.

At the same time, that does not mean we just flat out open our borders. We can’t do that. We cannot continue to allow immigrants to come here illegally. And in this age of terrorism, we must not let in refugees whose intentions cannot be determined.

We must fix our broken immigration system. That means stopping illegal immigration. And it means welcoming properly vetted legal immigrants, regardless of their race or religion. Just like we have for centuries.

I have no doubt that if we act with proper focus, we can protect our borders, our sovereignty and our citizens, all while remaining true to America’s noblest legacies.

Here’s what Miami Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart said in Spanish (translation is ours):

No one who is willing to work hard, abide by our laws, and love the United States should ever feel unwelcome in this country. It’s not who we are.

At the same time, it’s obvious that our immigration system needs to be reformed. The current system puts our national security at risk and is an obstacle for our economy.

It’s essential that we find a legislative solution to protect our nation, defend our borders, offer a permanent and human solution to those who live in the shadows, respect the rule of law, modernize the visa system and push the economy forward.

I have no doubt that if we work together, we can achieve this and continue to be faithful to the noblest legacies of the United States. …

Islamic terrorist incidents in the U.S. and Obama says we’re “safe”

January 9, 2016, 2:46 pm

By Andrew L. Jaffee

President Obama’s claim that the “U.S. is safe from a Paris-style attack from ISIS and that American law enforcement is well equipped to protect the nation” is foolish, obviously inaccurate, and downright misleading. Obama “repeatedly claims we’re safer than ever.” It seems unlikely that Americans are buying Obama’s obfuscations. Just today, a man was charged with attempting to kill a Philadelphia police officer “in the name of Islam.” The Islamic terrorist suspect, shown in the video below taken Friday, “had pledged his allegiance to ISIS.” Also today, we learned of the “arrest of two Iraq-born refugees on terror-related charges” which has rightfully “recharged Capitol Hill calls for the Obama administration to pull back on plans to welcome thousands more refugees from Middle East warzones.”

Even unabashed supporters of the president — like CNN — are reporting the obvious regarding his false assurances:

… [Obama's] comments came amid reports that the FBI is investigating ISIS sympathizers across the nation and a new study shows support for the terrorist group has reached unprecedented levels domestically. …

“A man ambushed a Philadelphia police officer, pumping bullets at point blank range.”

After being attacked by an Islamist thug yesterday, a badly wounded Philadelphia police officer, Jesse Hartnett, bravely took care of the terrorist. He should be commended for his courage. Note that Hartnett fought back with a gun. Note that “Officials also say the gun used in the crime, a 9mm Glock 17, had been stolen from a police officer’s home in 2013…,” reminding us that President Obama’s unconstitutional executive orders regarding “gun control” would have done nothing to stop the Philadelphia perpetrator. All of the president’s “gun control” efforts, and the efforts of his “gun control” allies, will solely make it harder for law-abiding citizens to purchase firearms.

Today’s events serve as a stark reminder to all citizens who cherish freedom: Our liberties are being attacked from within our borders and from without. We’re not “safe” from Islamic terrorism, contrary to President Obama’s meaningless assurances. To literally add insult to injury, the president is attacking our ability to protect ourselves, to protect our loved ones, and to protect this nation.

Iran pushes world towards Armageddon; Obama appeases and cowers

January 7, 2016, 7:05 pm

By Andrew L. Jaffee

Iran’s Islamist mullahs are, to say the least, violent, dangerous, insane, and certainly not trustworthy — as we’ve known for years and as the Iranian regime keeps proving every day. These thugs threaten not only the Middle East but the whole world. President Obama, obsessed with his “legacy,” has nonetheless signed a nuclear agreement with Iran which “commits Tehran to cutting back over more than a decade on nuclear technologies that could be used for weapons-making. In exchange, Iran will have access to about $100 billion in previously frozen assets and fully return to the oil market.” The mullahs have very publicly exclaimed, and most importantly acted, in ways that prove they have absolutely no intention of living up to the terms in Obama’s treaty. They intend to literally profit from this foolish treaty — and they certainly won’t stop pursuing the development of nuclear weapons. Recent events have emphasized that Iran has no intention of abiding by its obligations under Obama’s treaty. Even Democrats who supported the president’s agreement with Iran are “steaming.”

Let’s pause to review just a few of the reasons why any sane leader (i.e., not including President Obama) would refuse to sign a treaty with Iran’s mullahs. On multiple occasions, Iranian leadership has publicly stated its desire to “wipe Israel off the map” (and we know the only way they could try would be with atomic weapons). The mullahs are obsessed with the Islamic concept of the “mahdaviat,” which refers to “the restorer of religion and justice who will rule before the end of the world.” Just over a week ago, U.S. Central Command spokesman Commander Kyle Raines “said in a statement that Iranian Revolutionary Guard naval vessels fired ‘several unguided rockets’ about 1,500 yards from the USS Harry S. Truman aircraft carrier.” In February of last year, Iran held a “large-scale naval and air defense drill” in the Strait of Hormuz which involved blowing up “a replica U.S. aircraft carrier,” an act meant to send “a clear message to [Iran's] ‘extraterritorial enemies’ in Washington.” How many times have we heard Iranian officials making statements like “Jihad Will Continue Until America is No More?” Other Muslim countries are at near-warlike odds with Iran: “American Decline: With the Iran nuclear deal, the U.S. has moved closer to the world’s foremost terror state. Our Arab allies and friends just moved further away.”

Despite all this insanity, the Obama administration is ready to capitulate to Iranian terror, meekly proclaiming today that:

Iran may be “days away” from complying with last summer’s nuclear deal, US secretary of state John Kerry has said, a step that would compel the US and other western nations to immediately suspend many sanctions on the Islamic republic.

We heard perhaps a glimmer of hope today that “The GOP-led House Foreign Affairs Committee on Thursday approved legislation that would give Congress greater oversight of the landmark nuclear deal with Iran,” but will Republicans really follow through?

Are we now in a situation in which the Western World (which includes Israel) will only stop Iran if it does something incredibly evil and on an utterly massive scale? I’ll leave you with several depressing thoughts which at least provide some insight into this foreign relations nightmare…

Juanita Broaddrick ‘revisiting her rape allegations against Bill Clinton;’ Hillary covering for Bill?

January 6, 2016, 8:07 pm

Breaking news from Breitbart on Bill and Hillary Clinton:

A defiant Juanita Broaddrick told Breitbart on Wednesday that she is revisiting her rape allegations against Bill Clinton in hopes of educating a generation of young Americans on the former president’s sordid history with women.

She also slammed Hillary as “disgusting” for allegedly attempting to silence Broaddrick years ago while the Democratic frontrunner insisted in a recent campaign ad that women have a right to be believed if they accuse men of sexual assault.

“I thought, that’s the most disgusting thing,” Broaddrick told Breitbart of Hillary’s ad. “She tried to silence me.”

“I’m 73 years old, Aaron. Why would I want to bring this on myself other than to do right? So many people don’t really know. They weren’t around then. I think now they are waking up. When they see a woman abused and is coming forward I think it’s going to mean a lot.”

… the notoriously media-shy Broaddrick accused Clinton of complacency in covering up her husband’s alleged sexual crimes and indiscretions.

“I think she has always known everything about him. I think they have this evil compact between the two of them that they each know what the other does and overlook it. And go right on. And cover one for the other,” she said.

She recalled a personal meeting with Hillary in 1978, in which, Broaddrick believes, the future First Lady strongly implied the alleged rape victim must stay silent about her traumatic experience. …

More on GOP establishment’s betrayal of conservatives

January 5, 2016, 12:17 pm

President Obama and his Democratic cadre have been working towards the destruction of American values as enshrined in the U.S. Constitution. Most, though not all, Republicans, have given Obama everything he wants — to the absolute delight of the Democratic faithful. Concerned citizens, many of whom consider themselves conservatives, have tried to use the ballot box to constrain Obama and friends’ agenda by voting for a Republican opposition — and working assiduously to organize grassroots lobbying to remind the Republicans they’ve elected to oppose the grand “liberal” dream of destroying a good thing: the United States of America.

We recently discussed Sarah Palin very eloquently expressing dismay over the current GOP congressional delegation, aptly comparing them to “abusers” and extending the metaphor to place voters as Republicans’ “battered wife.” Now Daniel Horowitz of the Conservative Review paints in more of the picture — with a historical context — regarding the uselessness of having a congress in which Republicans control both houses (“Top 10 GOP Betrayals in 2015″). Please read his entire commentary as he summarizes the most important battles of our time against an out-of-control Democratic machine — battles we must continue to fight and win for the sake of this republic. Here’s a teaser from Horowitz’s full article:

2015 will likely be remembered as the year the GOP base finally rebelled against the party leadership, taking the half-century long schism within the party to the point of no return. The betrayal by the party establishment was so profound and blatant that GOP voters everywhere discovered what many of us have known for years — the party establishment does not share our values. …

This ain’t your grandfather’s Democrat Party; nor is this the party of Tip O’Neill or even Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer of the early ’90s who supported border security and religious freedom respectively. This is the party of transgenders, illegal aliens, and the Muslim Brotherhood. This is the party of licentiousness, totalitarianism, and post-Americanism. So yes, the consequences of remaining silent and even tacitly supporting this agenda are more deleterious than the ineptitude of former GOP House Minority Leader Bob Michael in fighting Democrats of yesteryear.

Last November, Americans went out and voted for a GOP Congress. Out popped Democrat policies, much like the rigged ballot machines in Maryland that would render Republican votes as Democratic ones. As Chuck Schumer jubilantly declared following the omnibus bill, “the bills we’re passing reflect Democratic values.” He boasted that “even though we’re in the minority, we are passing a program that we have been for all along.” …

Let’s take stock of the top 10 betrayals of this year that have precipitated the final divorce of the GOP elites and its party base:

1. Reelecting John Boehner

2. Funding the Entire Amnesty Program

3. Corker-Cardin Iran Deal

4. Social Issues, Religious Liberty, and Judicial Tyranny

5. Funding of Planned Parenthood

6. Criminal Justice Deform

7. The Great Fiscal Betrayal

8. Obamatrade

9. Islamic Refugees from the Middle East and Africa

10. Surrendering the Power of the Purse …

The good news? You can’t fool all the people all the time. This year voters will respond to these betrayals, and if the polls are any indication, it appears the establishment is in for a rough 2016.

Sarah Palin on the GOP’s betrayal of American conservatives

December 20, 2015, 11:23 am

Many Republicans have betrayed American voters — especially conservative voters. On November 4, 2014, citizens gave the GOP a strong mandate to oppose the policies of President Obama and his fellow Democrats. Republicans strengthened their hold on state legislatures, governorships, and the U.S. House and Senate, but almost immediately starting giving Obama everything he wanted. Obama’s goal is nothing less than the destruction of American values as enshrined in the U.S. Constitution, yet Republicans — as evidenced by their actions, certainly not their words — have gone happily along with the president. Yesterday, Sarah Palin very eloquently expressed dismay over the GOP congressional delegation, aptly comparing them to “abusers” and extending the metaphor to place voters as Republicans’ “battered wife:”

… For the last seven years, grassroots conservatives rallied to action under the belief that change starts at the ballot box. As I’ve said many times: there is nothing wrong with this country that a good old-fashioned election can’t fix.

People put their own lives on hold to send these Republicans to Congress to take back control of the House and Senate, to get a handle on our bankrupt federal government, and put America on the right track. I think of all the cross-country redeye flights I took away from my young son in order to campaign for Republican candidates, so full of promises, over the years. Others gave up a lot more than I did to elect a “conservative” majority.

Together, we grassroots conservatives gave the GOP historic electoral victories because they promised us they would stop Obama’s “fundamental transformation of America.”

Instead, they abetted it. They are Obama’s accomplices.

With this omnibus bill, they broke every promise they made to us. Every single one. They’ve reached a level of brazen duplicity previously known only to Democrats.

Obamacare? It’s fully funded.

Planned Parenthood, which was caught red-handed haggling over the sale of dead babies? It’s funded too.

Obama’s illegal executive amnesty? Funded.

Illegal alien sanctuary cities? Funded.

Visas for un-vetted Muslim migrants (“refugees”) to resettle in America? Funded.

Obama’s green energy crony capitalism? Funded.

Tax credits for illegal aliens? Funded.

H-2B visas to replace American workers with cheap unskilled foreign workers? Yep, that’s in there too.

What about funds for the fence that we so desperately need on our southern border? Nope, sorry, they couldn’t find any money for that.

Basically, everything commonsense conservatives despise — and Republicans promised to put an end to if elected — was funded by this omnibus.

They weren’t worried about the promises they made to us. This omnibus was written by lobbyists for lobbyists and passed by corrupted politicians fulfilling promises to these cronies with deep pockets. They campaigned one way, then governed another way.

This is why people hate politics and politicians. This is why they tune out and stay home. Reading through chunks of this bloated spending bill that drives us further into bankruptcy I steamed, “That’s it. They can’t be trusted. I’m outta here because they do not stand on the planks of the GOP platform, not one iota.”

But you know what, my fellow conservatives — that’s what the GOP establishment wants us to do!

They want us to leave the Party or just sit out elections.

Without us around, their handpicked puppets can be elected in gerrymandered districts without any pesky conservative primary challengers.

The Congressional GOP establishment doesn’t care about winning national elections. As far as they’re concerned, Hillary can have the White House — just so long as they can keep their cushy jobs on Capitol Hill.

In fact, having a Democrat in the White House is probably good for business. They don’t want to have to lead on anything — they’ve had ample opportunity to do so! — and a Democrat president is a nice foil for them. They can enjoy the status quo, enjoy all the crony capital cash, enjoy the perks of office, and as the country continues to crash and burn, they can tell the folks back home it’s all President Hillary’s fault.

Thankfully, not everyone with an “R” after their name is happy with the corrupt status quo. And there are a lot more good guys in Congress now thanks to the Tea Party.

So, no, it’s not time to leave the GOP. We’re going to make our abusers leave.

We’re not going to let them hit us again. …
