Hillary’s Email? It Ain’t Over

No. It’s not over for Hillary and her email handling. And that’s a good thing.

In a new legal development on the controversy over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails, an appeals court on Tuesday reversed a lower court ruling and said two U.S. government agencies should have done more to recover the emails.

Sooner or later, she needs to put her hand on the bible and speak under oath. The same as would happen for anyone else who mishandled national security details.

Equal justice under the law is what this country is all about. Letting one go while prosecuting others?  “That’s not who we are.”  Right Hillary?

Trump Nukes Media

The way the media is reacting to Pres-elect Trump’s reaction of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s stated goal for the coming year is something that could qualify for the M.R.I.O.T.D. award. Putin said he wants to make it a chief military objective to strengthen Russia’s nuclear capabilities.

So when Trump Tweets . . .

. . . he is basically stating his peace through strength agenda and rebuilding of the military that he’s been talking about for the last year and a half.

The media doesn’t know how to deal with someone who pretty much is his own media and speaks directly to the people, by-passing them and their bias. This has the media and jumping up and down with accusing Trump of causing “a sharp shift in U.S. national security policy. President Barack Obama has made nuclear nonproliferation a centerpiece of his agenda.” There’s the award-winning statement. Most ridiculous because it was President Obama who sanctioned real nuclear proliferation. Not only that, but for the world’s biggest State sponsor of terrorism, Iran. Not to mention the nutjob in North Korea who is already threatening to lob a nuke our way.

To the media, nuclear nonproliferation doesn’t mean not spawning nuclear capabilities to other countries. To them, and Obama, it means what we should let our own capabilities rot on the vine. There’s no outrage for the handing nuclear capabilities to Iran, with Russia’s support by the way. There’s no outrage at Putin’s goal to strengthen their nuclear capabilities, including developing a way to get past defensive shields.

What Trump did was call out Putin in terms of, you really don’t want to go there. But if you do, we’ll beat you just like the last time. The last time is when President Reagan hastened the end of the Soviet Union when they couldn’t keep up with the U.S. nuclear and defense posture. It drove them to bankruptcy. Russia’s economy is not in any shape to compete with what we could do if we wanted to.  It is all predicated on nuclear powers coming to their senses, “until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes.”

The political Left simply can not deal with the notion of peace through strength. The reason to have the best is so we won’t have to use them. The strength is the deterrence. But in their world, they believe that the world would be safer if we were weaker. The media still doesn’t understand why Trump won.

North Carolina Affirms Normal

The hoopla surrounding North Carolina’s HB2 (House Bill 2) legislation couldn’t be more confusing to decipher. And as usual, that is by design.

When you hear the way the mainstream media and opponents describe it, you would think that people are being denied ‘rights.’

North Carolina’s Republican-controlled legislature on Wednesday rejected a bid to repeal a state law restricting bathroom access for transgender people, which has drawn months of protests and boycotts by opponents decrying the measure as discriminatory.

The bill basically says that you use the bathroom based on what is between your legs, not what is between your ears. There are no transgender-bathroom1-1024x751“rights” of transgender people (less than 1% of society) to interfere with the rights of “normal” people to expect both privacy and security when using facilities like bathrooms, locker rooms, and common showers. When they were born, they had the same rights as everyone else. And still do.

What we have is a political movement to lower the bar of what is moral and right. There is nothing added for transgender or gender-confused people for them to deal with that they didn’t have 10, 50 or 100 years ago. And there’s no reason to change bathrooms for, or on, the 99% of the rest of society.

To that .3 % of society trying to bully the rest, get therapy or deal with it. And remember, diversity includes everyone.

Dept of Energy Embeds

One of the things people don’t like about Washington, and the Obama administration, is the way that political operatives are embedded into every agency of the Executive Branch.  So much so that the phrase “drain the swamp,” made popular by candidate Trump, now Pres.-elect Trump, was widely accepted by voters in November.

The politicization of the Dept. of Energy is in the news now. The Dept. of Justice is another, but that’s for another time.

Lately, the Obama administration fired a top scientist and intimidated staff at the Department of Energy in order to further its climate change agenda.

A top DoE scientist who liaised with Congress on the matter was fired by the Obama administration for being too forthright with lawmakers, according to the report, which provides an in-depth look at the White House’s efforts to ensure senior staffers toe the administration’s line.

So it’s no surprise that the Obama administration stiffed the incoming transition team’s request for names in the DoE who have been working in the area of Climate Change. Not only that, but Democrats are pushing back for them even wanting to know. The epitome of politicization of an agency. They claim it is over-reaching. I think it is important to know who is involved so the new administration can learn what it is they have to say on the subject. Regardless, it won’t take long for the new administration to find out who they are and what they know. Sooner or later, the swamp will be drained of the political embeds poised to fight against the administration.

Like Obama once said. Elections have consequences.

3 yr Old Shot, What’s Missing?

Since this road rage shooting Saturday night, the reporting about what or who to look for has been sketchy. First, we were told to be on the lookout for a black Chevrolet. There was no description of a human. The impression being left that either the car did the shooting or the shooter shot from inside the car and couldn’t be identified.

Well, this tweet was flashed on the TV screen tonight for a split second, in ABC’s evening news broadcast at the end of the 1 1/2 minute story. I went online to see the video to see what it was that I couldn’t read.  The video was there, but the tweet was not.

A scan of the Little Rock Police department’s Twitter feed produced the tweet that was flashed on the broadcast, and omitted from the archive copy. The reporter also omitted information about who the police are looking for. Here’s the subject tweet. Can you tell the detail that was omitted?

There is a reward, recently increased to $40,000.

What could possibly be the reason to omit the fact that a Black male was suspected of being the shooter?

Dishonest media.

It’s Official, Trump Won, Again

Final electors tally, Trump 304, Clinton 227.

Contrary to the wishes and expectations of the wacko Left and their media, Clinton had more defectors than Trump. Trump lost 2, Hillary lost 5.

That makes Hillary a confirmed three-time loser.
  1. Jun. 2008
  2. Nov. 2016
  3. and Dec 2016
The biggest not-published news story today, and since the election Nov 8, is the voter intimidation and death threats perpetrated by the Clinton campaign and her supporters directed at the electors of the Electoral College. Not one statement by Hillary to accept the results and to stop tearing at the constitutional electoral process. You know, like she said two months ago when she was speaking about Donald Trump.
