Dustup about Trump PAC ad and Clinton’s India donor raises questions about outsourcing

PAC ad Mrs. Clinton outsourcing

Snip from India Today video, 2005, featured in the Rebuilding America Now PAC ad targeting Mrs. Clinton.

Hillary Clinton’s campaign is understandably upset about a pro-Trump PAC ad related to India politico Amar Singh. According to media, the dustup isn’t over whether Singh did give Mrs. Clinton’s family foundation $5 million. The dustup is over the year it occurred in.

The PAC claims it occurred in 2008. The subject matter involves outsourcing US jobs.  Continue reading

President Barack Obama could sell holes to a donut maker, and when he responded to questions from friendly media outlet NBC Nightly News, his salesmanship was on full display.

Obama weighed in on who was responsible for hacking Democrats’ National Committee files as controversial emails about Jews, Hispanics, and Bernie Sanders surfaced via WikiLeaks. Is Russia behind the hack?  Continue reading

A claim began to make its way around the blogosphere after Democrats’ convention got off to a rocky start in Philadelphia. Numerous conservatives and other opponents of the status quo claimed Democrats didn’t mention ISIS a single time during opening night speeches.

I didn’t retweet it because I wasn’t sure if it was accurate.  Continue reading

DNC in Philly: Don’t wait for media to share Warren’s Constitution-busting legacy

No politico has been as eager-beaver as Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) when it comes to going after GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump. Some days it seems all Warren does is post anti-Trump Tweets.

Media portray Warren as a champion of the people. Poppycock. Warren’s real legacy is a Constitution-busting insult.  Continue reading

Omar Mateen, the dead ISIS sympathizer who killed 49 people at an Orlando nightclub in June, has fallen off the news cycle. So has his wife.

There’s news about Mateen, however, that went unnoticed as political parties approached the opening of their national conventions. It appears the St. Lucie County sheriff pegged Mateen well ahead of the massacre in June, 2016.

There’s also a need for media to ask questions about Mateen’s wife.

WikiLeaks freaks out leftist social media as users find ways to get around blocks

Shultz snark Priebus

Schultz snarked at GOP chair Reince Priebus, but her words came back to haunt her.

Once the latest WikiLeaks release hit media, outlets sympathetic to Republicans and libertarians had a field day. On Sunday, July 24, my Twitter timeline was filled with leaks about collusion at the Democrats’ National Committee on behalf of Hillary Clinton.

Although hacked DNC email releases dominated news all weekend, there was a scarcity of hashtags in ‘Trending’ and many users claimed Twitter was deliberately burying the issue. Meanwhile, similar shenanigans were alleged on Facebook.

Despite leftist social media running interference for the Clinton campaign, there are ways to get around it.  Continue reading

Told you so: WikiLeaks busts out DNC documents suggesting primary rigged

Hillary "lying" from Michael Armstrong video

How many times have you heard GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump say the system is “rigged”?

That may well be the case for the Democrats’ primary process. WikiLeaks has published emails hacked from the Democrat National Committee, and media are digesting those emails with far more sympathy for the DNC than they would ever display towards the GOP.

I have a loved one who must be hearing me say “I told you so” right now.  Continue reading
