If you’re wondering why the Democratic National Convention has their shorts in a wad over Donald Trump, it can be explained very easily. With his single 1-hour press conference yesterday morning, he totally hijacked their convention news cycle, drawing focus back to Hillary Clinton’s “extremely careless”email setup during her tenure as Sec. of State.
He began the press conference pointing out the slavishness of the reporters for the Democrat nominee. How is it that she has not had a press conference in 235 days and no one here seems to mind? It’s obvious. She can’t handle a press conference without pre-screened questions. And she is ready to be our president?
Listen to what Donald Trump said about Russia and emails, and the context it was said. Then recall what Leon Panetta said to millions of people watching the Democratic National Convention, and what other Democrats, and their Media, have said that he said.
Former Sec of Defense Leon Panetta:
Donald Trump, who wants to be president of the United States, is asking one of our adversaries to engage in hacking or intelligence efforts against the United States of America to affect an election.”
That these people will lie to advance an agenda, or to win The White House, is nothing new. To quote Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, as Americans, “that’s not who we are.” But it is who they are.
As for the New York Times and their soul brothers in mainstream media, and the Left in general, they have no sense of humor. Not until the last line of this article do they admit it.
Consider what the political Left, beholden to Big Labor, tell you about raising the minimum wage, then piling on ‘living wage’ on top of that. Then look at this video.
All you need to know from me is, it’s Big Labor who wants the minimum wage to go up. And for their own selfish reasons.
For labor contracts tied to the minimum wage, those workers will get an automatic raise. On top of their already over $45/hr in wages and benefits they are getting. (Non-union is just over $32/hr)
Democrats advocate it to complete the money laundering scheme. That would be the campaign contributions, the ground support, and the Astroturf protestors that supporting Big Labor affords them for supporting Big Labor. And for advocating to increase labor union membership. The latter of which is no business of the federal or state government.
Obama and Hillary like to talk about the wage gap. They aren’t looking at the wage gap, that is getting wider, between union employees and non-union employees.
Their sales pitch to you sounds so compassionate. But, to say that by forcing employers to pay an artificially high wage will act as an economic stimulus is just not based in economic experience. The laws of economics, like the laws of gravity, can not be changed. They are what they are.
The consequence of a $15/hr minimum wage will increase unemployment and, put those entering the workforce at a disadvantage. Neither of these consequences will help the demographic (the voters) that these politicians say will be helped. Black youths are hit the hardest. The only demographic that will be helped is Big Labor, and the DNC.
Michelle Obama once said “I want a better future for my children.” Now nobody else can say that? Melania Trump said she was proud of America and, to be an American, BEFORE her husband was nominated. She didn’t say “For the first time in my adult lifetime I am proud of my country,” AFTER her husband was nominated.
That portions of the speech was plagiarized is not as significant to me as what was said. It is the definition of the American Dream. Anyone have a copyright on that? Come to think of it, from that perspective, everyone owns that copyright.
My point here is, Melania has lived it. The significant difference between Michelle Obama and Melania Trump is, one didn’t believe what she was saying, said it for political purposes to appeal to middle America, and the other actually believed what she said.
Hillary’s polling numbers improve when she’s not speaking in public, not in the news. Where the media is concerned, any distraction that takes the focus off of Hillary Clinton is a worthy cause. Call it a campaign contribution.
A U.N. (Useless Nations) tribunal has ruled in favor of the Philippines in a case against Chinese claims to rights in the South China Sea. The Permanent Court of Arbitration said there was no evidence that China had historically exercised exclusive control over the waters or resources. And, true to form, China called the ruling “ill-founded” and says it will not be bound by it. See that middle finger?
As foreign relations and global security goes, where is President Obama on the stealing of the South China Sea by China? It’s a rhetorical question. He’s at the same place he was when Russia stole Crimea from Ukraine.
Looking back, the U.N. Permanent Court of Arbitration ruling from The Hague against China may become the most discernible symbol of the failure of President Barack Obama’s foreign policy. The U.N. ruled. China ignored. It is a pattern that leads to a weaker America, which is a feature, not a bug, of Obama’s foreign policy.
Because this move by China will have a major impact on the entire region, trade routes, air space, and common defense, this should be big news. China is claiming all the surface and air space as their own, including lands owned by other countries in and around the South China Sea. And hardly a peep out of the media about it.
The shootings in Dallas and elsewhere consume all the media. To the exclusion of that, and to the exclusion of Hillary Clinton’s illegal activities surrounding her email handling. How lucky for them is that?
