My thoughts…mine alone. Not meant to interfere. No money was distributed, no attempt is being made to infiltrate the US to undermine any campaign (as compared to what the Obama administration did during the last Israeli elections).
I’m smart enough to know that if we were stupid enough to attempt this, America…or what is left of it…would respond to us as we responded to Obama (A Message to America).
So, I offer my thoughts…and mine alone…on the choice between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton:
I am more amazed by the endless need to attack the other person that typifies almost all Facebook posts. And the only posts I’ve seen the have been positive about either candidate are usually lies. The best single post I’ve seen is quite simple “We’re Screwed, 2016.”
I have been accused of being interested in only one aspect of the US elections – how the candidate relates to Israel. I can’t totally deny this because while I believe which candidate you choose will impact on your future economic situation and perhaps some personal freedoms, I don’t think the very lives of most Americans hangs on the balance of how the next election goes.
Potentially every Israeli life, including and especially the soldiers of Israel, could be on the line. I am proud of my country, Israel, for taking the necessary steps and cultivating other relationships outside the one with the US. This will be needed if Clinton is elected.
But I will also tell you that again and again, I see that what happens to Israel first, spreads to the rest of the world. We lived through terrible days of suicide bombing attacks, now they are very rare in Israel (thank God and the IDF). While terrorism is still a reality in Israel, far more attacks are averted or mitigated by our strong and constant attempts to fight it. We watch as horrible things happen in Brussels, Orlando, London, San Bernadino, Paris, Nice, and now Munich. Left unchecked, terror will spread and spread. And who the US chooses in this election, will likely have a direct impact on how the US fights terror (or even if it fights terror), in the coming years.
What boggles the mind is how many of you now agree Obama was a disaster, just as we here in Israel said he would be, but are prepared to go with Clinton when we say the same thing about her and the policies she will implement, the people she will empower. Fool us once, shame on him…and Obama did. Fool us twice even, shame on him…and Obama did. Fool you three times, and Clinton will, shame on you.
At some point, however, you can’t fight stupid. Do what you gotta do, America. The world is watching. Your society is imploding. It is horrible to watch from outside. Those of us who live in Israel by choice still care deeply for the US and it is very painful to sit here and watch you choose between two such horrendous options. Worse, to watch as you pick the worst of the worse.
Clinton has now picked a Vice President who has a clear anti-Israel position. Oh yeah, he’ll mouth the words about supporting our backs…just like Obama did. But like Obama and Clinton, they despise the Israeli government, and the vibrant Israeli democracy that brought it to power.
I firmly believe that in four years, if you elect Clinton, America will be weaker and more isolated, thousands more will have died in terror attacks. As for Israel, you may not believe this next statement, but I do…we here in Israel will be fine. We are strong. We love this land and will defend it.
Four years ago, when Obama was re-elected, I wanted Israel to send the US a message, “God bless you and keep you safe…see you in four years.”
Well, it’s four years later. If Clinton is elected, I hope we’ll send that message because there will be no reason to attempt a closer relationship. Israel gets financial aid…yeah, we do…and we paid for that aid right back in many ways. It is not at all clear that Israel needs the US more than the US needs Israel – ask your military…or what is left of it after Obama has systematically worked to destroy it.
Look at the innovation coming out of Israel. I’ll tell you a secret…ready? What you see is nothing compared to what is happening here. You’ve seen pieces of it – Iron Dome – that WE developed, to meet and knock missiles out of the sky to protect our people, and now a Tunnel Discovery technology that is finding and destroying Hamas tunnels.
What else is there? Don’t worry – there’s more. We’ll deal with what we have to, no matter who you elect. With great disgust and sadness, I hope it will be Donald Trump.
I hope it will be Donald Trump, because I’d rather stand with the United States before the Russians, the Germans, Asians and Africans.
I hope it will be Donald Trump, because a united stand against Iran is the only way out of the dangers ahead that would (and will) be presented by a nuclear Iran. My country will fly alone if it has to but it would be better for the west if it wasn’t Israel alone.
I hope it will be Donald Trump, because I don’t think the US military can survive another years of Obama under a new name.
I hope it will be Donald Trump, because he is a Washington outsider and it’s time to bring in someone from the outside to change the corruption that has robbed America of so much of its greatness.
I hope it will be Donald Trump, because Israel is an important ally and deserves better treatment than it got from Obama or will get from Clinton and Caine, who supported Obama’s ongoing attempts to humiliate and insult Israel’s leaders.
I hope it will be Donald Trump, because the alternative is so much worse and because the next few years will force America to deal with very similar problems that Europe is struggling with right now…in places like Paris, Nice, Brussels, London, and Munich.
I hope it will be Donald Trump…
I hope it won’t be Hillary Clinton. I hope it won’t be Tim Kaine.
Whatever you think of either candidate running for president, Chris Christie definitely put on quite a performance yesterday at the RNC.
Below are Christie’s full remarks, as prepared for delivery and provided by convention officials.
I am here tonight not only as the Governor of New Jersey, but also as Donald Trump’s friend for the last fourteen years.
We are about to be led by not only a strong leader but by a caring, genuine and decent person.
I am proud to say that the voice of the people of our nation is being heard in this hall and those voices want Donald Trump to be the next President of the United States. But this election is not just about Donald Trump.
It is also about his Democratic opponent, Hillary Rodham Clinton.
In the past few weeks we have seen this Justice Department refuse to prosecute her.
Over the last eight years, we have seen this Administration refuse to hold her accountable for her dismal record as Secretary of State.
Well, tonight, as a former federal prosecutor, I welcome the opportunity to hold her accountable for her performance and her character.
We must present those facts to you, a jury of her peers, both in this hall and in living rooms around our nation.
Since the Justice Department refuses to allow you to render a verdict, let’s present the case now, on the facts, against Hillary Clinton. She was America’s chief diplomat. Look around at the violence and danger in our world today every region of the world has been infected with her flawed judgment.
But let me be specific so you can render your verdict. In North Africa, she was the chief engineer of our disastrous overthrow of Qaddafi in Libya.
Libya today after Hillary Clinton’s grand strategy? Libya’s economy in ruins, death and violence in the streets and ISIS now dominating the country.
Hillary Clinton, as a failure for ruining Libya and creating a nest for terrorist activity by ISIS guilty or not guilty? In Nigeria, Hillary Clinton amazingly fought for two years to keep an Al-Qaeda affiliate off the terrorist watch list.
What happened because of this reckless action by the candidate who is the self-proclaimed champion of women around the world? These terrorists abducted hundreds of innocent young girls two years ago.
These schoolgirls are still missing today.
What was the solution from the Obama/Clinton team? A hashtag campaign! Hillary Clinton, as an apologist for an Al-Qaeda affiliate in Nigeria resulting in the capture of innocent young women guilty or not guilty? She fights for the wrong people.
She doesn’t fight for us. She doesn’t get the real threats America faces. In China, Hillary Clinton praised the Chinese government for buying our debt to finance President Obama’s bloated stimulus plan.
So desperate for Chinese cash, she promised to oppose the Buy American provision in the stimulus bill in exchange for the cash to finance his huge expansion of government spending.
Hillary Clinton, putting big government spending financed by the Chinese ahead of jobs for middle class Americans guilty or not guilty? In Syria, she called President Assad a “reformer” and a “different kind of leader.”
With 400,000 now dead…think about that.
At the hands of the man Hillary defended.
We must ask this question: Hillary Clinton, as an awful judge of the character of a dictator-butcher in the Middle East guilty or not guilty? In Iran, she led the negotiations that brought about the worst nuclear deal in history.
Let me be clear: America and the world are measurably less safe and less respected because of the Iran deal Hillary helped cut.
Period. After she launched those negotiations, she became the biggest cheerleader for it at the end.
A deal that will lead to a nuclear Iran, an Israel that will be less safe and secure and much more dangerous Middle East.
Hillary Clinton, as an inept negotiator of the worst nuclear arms deal in American history guilty or not guilty? In Russia, she went to the Kremlin on her very first visit and gave them the symbolic reset button.
The button should have read, “delete” she is very good at that because she deleted in four years what it took 40 years to build. The next year, she said our goal was to strengthen Russia.
Strengthen an adversary led by a dictator who dreams of reassembling the old Soviet empire? What a dangerous lack of judgment.
Once again, as a flawed evaluator of dictators and failed strategist who has permitted Russia back in as a major player in the Middle East is Hillary Clinton guilty or not guilty? In Cuba, Hillary Clinton supported concessions to the Castro brothers and got almost nothing in return for ending the embargo.
She supported a deal that didn’t even require this murderous regime to return a cop killer, JoAnne Chesimard, to face justice.
Chesimard murdered a New Jersey State Trooper in cold blood, fled to Cuba and lives there to this very day.
How do you live with your own conscience when you reward a domestic terrorist with continued safety and betray the family of fallen police officer waiting for decades for justice for his murder? Hillary Clinton as coddler of the brutal Castro brothers and betrayer of the family of fallen Trooper Werner Foerster guilty or not guilty?
Finally, here at home, in one of her first decisions as Secretary of State, she set up a private e-mail server in her basement in violation of our national security.
Let’s face it: Hillary Clinton cared more about protecting her own secrets than she did about protecting America’s secrets.
Then she lied about it over and over again.
She said there was no marked classified information on her server.
The FBI Director said that was untrue.
She said that she did not email any classified information. The FBI Director said that was untrue.
She said all work related emails were sent back to the State Department.
The FBI Director said that was untrue.
As to Hillary Clinton, putting herself ahead of America guilty or not guilty? Hillary Clinton, lying to the American people about her selfish, awful judgment guilty or not guilty? Time after time the facts, and just the facts, lead you to the same verdict both around the world and at home.
In Libya and Nigeria guilty.
In China and Syria guilty.
In Iran and Russia and Cuba guilty.
And here at home on risking America’s secrets to keep her own and lying to cover it all upguilty.
Her focus group tested persona, with no genuineness to be found, is a sham meant to obscure all the facts and leave you able to vote for her. We cannot promote someone to Commander-in-
Chief who has made the world a more violent and dangerous place with every bad judgment she has made.
We cannot make the Chief Law Enforcement Officer of the United States someone who has risked America’s secrets and lied about this to Congress and the American people.
We didn’t disqualify Hillary Clinton to be President of the United States the facts of her life and career disqualifies her. We in this hall agree with all of this.
But I want to talk to all of you at home, in your living rooms. You are the ones who will decide this election. We have an alternative.
We have a man who is unafraid.
We have a man who wants to lead us.
We have a man who understands the frustrations and the aspirations of our fellow citizens.
We have a man who judges people based on their performance regardless of your gender, race, ethnic or religious background. We do not need to settle for less.
We cannot reward incompetence and deceit. We need to demand more than what Hillary Clinton offers for America.
We know exactly what four years of Hillary Clinton will bring: all the failures of the Obama years, but with less charm and more lies. It is our obligation to stop Hillary Clinton now and never let her within 10 miles of the White House again.
It is time to come together and make sure that Donald Trump is our next President.
Well, it’s beginning to happen. It seems that my unwelcome (even by me) prediction that Donald Trump will be the next President of the United States is not as remote as many people believe.
Conventional wisdom has long ago ‘left the building.’ The idea that a self-centered, erratic, megalomaniac like Trump would have even the remotest chance of being nominated by a major political party for President of the United States is now the reality of our time.
His comments on a whole host of issues are so repugnant that at any other time in history he would have been laughed out of contention in very short order. The media and just about every political pundit has been relentless. He has been ridiculed extensively by comedians on late night TV. He has been condemned by prominent politicians in his own party. He managed to alienate past Presidents and Presidential candidates of his own political party. Many of whom will be boycotting the Republican National Convention. And even those that have reluctantly endorsed him have vehemently disagreed and even condemned many of his statements and proposed policies. Including Mike Pence, the man he has ostensibly chosen as his running mate.
I do not recall anything like this even remotely happening in my lifetime. And yet the latest poll shows Donald Trump in a dead heat with Hillary Clinton in the general election with 40% of the electorate saying they will vote for Trump and 40% saying they will vote for Clinton. With Trump leading among independents!
When I made this prediction I said then that it didn’t seem to matter what Trump said or did. Republican voters voted for him anyway… as if he never said or did anything wrong. This is the mood of the country, or at least a majority of it.
The counter to that was along the lines that it is only unenlightened Neanderthal Republicans that voted for Trump. The general election will include a much smarter electorate that will overcome that voting element.
Well, that is not what is happening. Trump started out well below Clinton in initial polls just after his nomination was assured. But now that Clinton has been proven to be a careless and sloppy liar she is deemed less trustworthy the Trump. Which I believe is the reason for Trump’s recent bump in the polls.
Now many people will say that this bump is temporary. Perhaps. But I wouldn’t bet the farm on it. Sure, Trump will continue to be his unpredictable boorish self. But as I have been saying, that doesn’t seem to matter in this strange political year. What does matter is the impact of radical Islam on the world. And what happened yesterday helps Trump. He does not speak softly and carry a big stick. He roars! His ideas may not be realistic. But this is what a lot of people want to hear right now. They want to hear tougher talk about terrorism – and its Islamic source. A lot tougher than what has been coming out of the administration and the Democratic candidate.
Yesterday in what seems to have become a weekly affair, over 80 people were killed in Nice, France while they were celebrating Bastille Day (France’s equivalent of our Independence Day). Mohmaed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, a Muslim citizen of France drove a huge truck at high speed into a crowd watching fireworks at a beach. The truck mowed people down in its path. He then exited the truck and started firing a gun at people until he was shot and killed by the police.
Islamic terrorists have managed to murder masses of innocent people in Nice, Paris, Belgium, San Bernardino, Pakistan, Orlando, and Netanya. All in a relatively short span of time.
The response of the administration and Mrs. Clinton is to ignore the ideology and combat the terrorists. As though terrorism is the problem and killing terrorists is the goal. But terrorism is not the problem. It is the means of a radical religious ideology that wants to take over the world by any means necessary. You don’t fight an ideology by killing their adherents that commit these attacks. You have to devise a way to fight the ideology. And the first order of doing business is to identify the source of that ideology. You have to identify the enemy, not only the means they use.
Clearly Islam is what motivates them, even as it is being called a perversion of Islam by many Islamic clerics. It is not a perversion. It is a version. An ancient version that is militant in pursuit of its goals. And more than a few Muslims believe in it. It has been resurrected in our time by radical Muslim clerics. These are religious ideologues that are willing to die for what they believe is a ‘Kiddush HaShem’ screaming Alahu Achbar! They are not perverted lone wolves but a theological movement where terror is a legitimate tool in seeking a world Islamic Caliphate. Which is the ideology of ISIS, Al Qaida, and every other Islamic Jihadist group.
This is why people like hearing things like banning all Muslims. Even-though most Muslims are not terrorists and in many cases themselves victims of Islamic terror. And even though it is racist and unconstitutional to ban people because of their religion… the American electorate sees Muslim religious fanatics perpetrating violence all over the world inspired by an ideology being promoted worldwide via the web. And they like hearing what Trump is saying – even if they will not publicly say so.
Among the collateral damage from terrorist attacks like this is the boost in Trump’s poll numbers. There is little doubt in my mind that Trump is seen as tougher on terror than Clinton, whose policies are more or less the same as Obama’s. Which is not surprising since she was his Secretary of State.
People want change. The more terrorist attacks we have like this in the world… the more impotence the world seems to have. This then makes Trump – with all of his flaws – very attractive. What about all that erratic shoot from the hip behavior? What about his diarrhea of the brain? I don’t think the majority of the electorate cares about that anymore. They simply want change and Trump is unquestionably change. An unprecedented one.
Which is why the selection of a Vice Presidential running mate is so important. Because in Trump’s case, he knows deep down that he has no clue about how to govern. He is going to rely more on his VP than George W. Bush did on his VP, Dick Cheney. Which makes his choice of Governor Mike Pence an important one. As a religious Evangelical Christian Pence will solidify the support from the social conservative base of the Republican Party. He also was known as a consensus builder when he was a member of the House of Representatives. He was well liked among his peers and has an even keeled temperament, which is something that Trump doesn’t know the meaning of.
My prediction is that in the next poll, Trump will take the lead. Especially if he can shut up for five minutes! Which he needs to do. He’s already established his bonafides as an attack dog who does not care where the chips may fall. Now it’s time to win over the more level headed voter that is turned off by such disgusting rhetoric. Maybe the soft spoken Pence can accomplish that.
Clinton on the other hand does not have all of Bernie Sanders supporters on board yet. All the enthusiasm he generated during the primaries has dissipated. I’m not sure all the support Bernie got will now accrue to Clinton. She may get most of it. But she needs all of it – and the enthusiasm that goes along with it. I don’t think she will get it. And her negatives are higher than Trump’s!
As far as I am concerned, I will still hold my nose and vote for Hillary. I prefer a continuation of the status quo – as bad as it is – over the uncertainty and possible chaos that will ensue from a Trump Presidency. Either way, God help us all.
The congressional testimony of FBI Director James Comey regarding the Hillary Clinton e-mail investigation gave us the uncomfortable feeling that that we’d seen this movie before. Indeed, the Watergate scandal that resulted in President Nixon’s resignation featured questions similar to those that that have arisen in the course of the Clinton e-mail saga.
But there is at least one stark contrast. It took a no-nonsense judge and a relentless congressional investigation to get the facts revealed about Watergate, while in the current mess the facts are already largely in plain sight. What rankles is the refusal of top governmental officials to act on those facts.
President Obama has summarily assured us that whatever it may look like, Mrs. Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server while serving as secretary of state did not in fact compromise national security. Cue up the newsreel of President Nixon assuring the public that he was “not a crook” while he was knee-deep in the cover-up of the Watergate break-in and indeed had authorized the use of the FBI and other government agencies to stymie investigators.
Last October, right at the outset of the FBI investigation of the Clinton e-mails, Mr. Obama went on national TV and flatly told the nation – and, of course, his underlings at the Department of Justice and the FBI – that “I can tell you this is not a situation in which America’s national security was endangered.”
And this past April, the president, in a televised interview, was asked whether – given the revelations that Mrs. Clinton’s e-mails contained classified information, including 22 with “top secret” information –he could “still say flatly that she did not jeopardize America’s secrets.”
Mr. Obama answered, in part, as follows:
I’ve got to be careful because, as you know, there have been investigations, there are hearings, Congress is looking at this. And I haven’t been sorting through each and every aspect of this. Here’s what I know: Hillary Clinton was an outstanding secretary of state. She would never intentionally put America in any kind of jeopardy.…
I continue to believe that she has not jeopardized America’s national security….What I also know, because I handle a lot of classified information, is that there are – there’s classified, and then there’s classified…. There’s stuff that is really top secret, top secret, and there’s stuff that is being presented to the president or the secretary of state that you might not want on the transom, or going out over the wire, but is basically stuff that you could get in open source.
So the president had no real information here but was essentially giving Mrs. Clinton a pass. We would have expected a more rigorous concern on the president’s part for the integrity of the classified secrets process, especially since Jonathan Pollard and others convicted of mishandling classified documents received no such benefits of the doubt.
But the president’s message was clear and it is not surprising that the FBI director recommended against going any further in pursuing Mrs. Clinton’s use of a private server even though much damning evidence had been uncovered: In addition to e-mails containing classified information –something Mrs. Clinton said didn’t exist – there were thousands of State Department-related e-mails that she didn’t produce as investigators had requested, even though she said she produced them all.
Mr. Comey also noted that Mrs. Clinton’s use of a personal e-mail account was well known and she used it extensively outside the United States, to the extent that “we assess it is possible that hostile actors gained access to Secretary Clinton’s personal account.”
Indeed, experts consulted by the New York Times said it is not just possible but probable the account was hacked.
In other words, “hostile actors” likely had access to the information contained in the secretary of state’s e-mails – and the FBI has no interest in pursuing the matter.
Further, Mr. Comey, although he spoke in somewhat caustic terms about Mrs. Clinton’s use of a personal e-mail system, seems to have been less than serious about the investigation. Thus, though the investigation took approximately a year and involved such personal credibility issues as her inaccurate claim that no classified material was carried on her e-mail system, her counterfactual claim that she used one communication device, her specious claim that she returned all work-related material to the State Department, her fallacious claim that neither she nor anyone else deleted work-related material from her account, and her untrue claim that her lawyers had read all of her e-mails to determine which ones had to be turned over to investigators, she herself was not questioned until three days before the final report was released.
Nor was she questioned under oath. Nor was a transcript of the questioning made.
What also gnaws about the missing e-mails is not just that they may contain relevant information about Mrs. Clinton’s use of her personal account for official business, although that is, of course, proper cause for concern. It is that the missing e-mails could shed light on Mrs. Clinton’s possible conflicts of interest in her actions as secretary of state that favored large contributors to the Clinton Foundation.
Of particular note, this past April there were reports of a business deal involving Canadian mining investors who had made contributions to the foundation and were in the process of selling their uranium company to a Russian state-owned energy company. The deal required approval by the State Department among other government agencies and the deal was ultimately approved. The New York Times headlined a news report on the matter “Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation Amid Russian Uranium Deal.”
Now, there may or may not be something there, but we can only wonder if any of those disappeared e-mails would have shed some light on the situation. Shades of those missing 18-and-a-half minutes of Richard Nixon’s Watergate tapes.
On Tuesday morning, at a rally in Portsmouth, NH, Bernie Sanders officially endorsed Hillary Clinton for president. It was their first joint appearance, just two weeks before the Democratic National Convention.
“Today, I am so honored that Senator Sanders is joining me on the campaign trail and is ready to take on Trump and the GOP,” Clinton said in an email Tuesday, asking supporters to “stand with Senator Sanders and me.” So many showed up to see the deed getting done already.
“Secretary Clinton has won the Democratic nominating process, and I congratulate her for that. She will be the Democratic nominee for president and I intend to do everything I can to make certain she will be the next president of the United States,” Sanders said, adding, “I have come here to make it as clear as possible why I am endorsing Hillary Clinton and why she must become our next president.”
Sanders said Clinton is “far and away the best candidate” to care for “the needs of the American people … [and] the very serious crises that we face.” He called presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump a step in the wrong direction for America.
At the rally, Clinton said, “With your help, we’re joining forces to defeat Donald Trump, win in November, and build a future we can all believe in,” Mrs. Clinton said. “Thank you, thank you Bernie for your endorsement, but more than that, thank you for your lifetime of fighting injustice. I am proud to be fighting alongside you because, my friends, this is a time for all of us to stand together.”
I rarely write about American politics. Here in Israel, existential national threats prevent me from dwelling on America’s problems. In Israel, Arabs butcher our thirteen-year-old daughters in their bedrooms and gun down our brothers and fathers, and the impotent leadership responds in typical fashion— with powerful speeches to comfort the bereaved. So naturally the demise of America cannot take up much of my time.
But that doesn’t mean I’m disinterested. I am concerned with America’s welfare. As a Jew with a sense of history, I appreciate the haven America provided us throughout the last few centuries, when most countries offered nothing but death and despair. And I feel the need to occasionally opine when I see criminal politicians in America destroying a moral country that treated Jews far better than any other country in history. Furthermore, short of a nation of gentiles following the “7 Laws of Noah” (ideally), no nation in history has ever created a system of government so humane to her citizens. And shame on the Jew who forgets that.
Europe deserves her fate, since Europe is the world’s largest Jewish graveyard. They hated their loyal Jews. So let the Europeans live and die with their ever growing hordes of Islamic migrants. There is justice in that. America deserves better. And with the astounding revelation by the FBI that despite the overwhelming evidence of gross misconduct in handling her emails, Hillary Clinton will not be indicted for endangering national security, the message is clear. The land of the free is bleeding. Tyranny is knocking down the door.
Hillary Clinton vs. Donald Trump: What’s the Question?
The impending American elections are a portrait of insanity. When was the last time the nominated presidential candidate was the subject of a criminal investigation involving the FBI? How naked is the double standard when the Clintons get to skate from the most egregious of scandals for which the common man would be incarcerated for life? Lunacy aside, the ultimate battle will boil down to Donald Trump versus Hillary Clinton, as shameful as that is, since the latter deserves a ball and chain.
This is an easy choice, if not an ideal one, for anyone with a sense of decency. I don’t know about you, but if I must choose between a nasty crippling cold and a flesh-eating virus, I choose the former 10 times out of 10. There are indeed degrees of bad, and my decision to choose the lesser “bad” in no way indicates my approval. Those simpletons who choose to equate a flawed Donald Trump with Hillary Clinton, and throw their hands in the air with their own version of “what difference does it make?” commit a grave error. Those who see Trump as the more odious candidate are deranged, and more than a few disgruntled ‘RINOS’ are actually looking her way, as astounding as this seems. And those who dismiss, ignore, or lie about Hillary’s crooked behavior and vicious nature betray themselves.
Trump is indeed flawed, and hardly an ideal candidate for the already un-principled Republican Party, but to equate him with Hillary Clinton is the height of insanity. Hillary is a malevolent personality who will destroy America. Open borders, amnesty for all illegals, the continued march of the death cult of liberalism. This can only mean one thing: the eventual death of the Republic. No country that murders the innocent in the womb, marries homosexuals, and releases murderers can survive very long. Hillary will continue Obama’s ravaging of everything decent in America, and continue the downward spiral. There will be no recovery. America will be changed forever.
Hillary the Radical Leftist
Since her youth, Hillary was a liberal menace. As a young activist, Hillary Clinton assisted and aided Black Panthers on trial for torture and murder. Let’s be clear: this racist terrorist organization from the late 1960’s and 70’s was responsible for the murder of police officers. While a new revitalized Black Panther Party and the Black Klan of the Black Lives Matter movement is sowing violence and racial hatred in Obama’s America, we should remind ourselves that many years ago, Hillary was involved with the original incarnation of these thugs. Additionally, over the years, in her capacity as a lawyer, Hillary defended some of the most repugnant criminals who preyed upon the innocent, including a child rapist she knew to be guilty.
Hillary the Jew-Hater
Several years back, former Arkansas State troopers alleged that on several occasions Hillary called people “f***ing Jew bastards.” Not hard to imagine, since she has a reputation for being foul mouthed and she is notorious for losing her temper at the drop of a hat. And those who remember when Hillary kissed Suha Arafat, moments after the latter woman gave a public speech accusing Israel of poisoning Arab children, can surely believe the claims of Jew hatred. After all, blood libels are the domain of anti-Semites.
During Bill Clinton’s two terms, Hillary helped her husband twist Israel’s arm, even as Arab terror increased and Arafat openly encouraged Jihad against Israel. Hillary frequently invited Arab terrorist front groups to the White House for dinners and celebrations. And who can forget when the crafty Hillary took one thousand dollars from the American Muslim Council and fifty thousand dollars from the American Muslim Alliance during her Senate campaign in 2000? Both groups openly support terror against Israel and praised Hamas. She was forced to return the money when word got out, despite her attempt to hide the donation by writing down the “American Museum Council” on the donor report.
Some notable Hillary moments as Secretary of State include:
• Raising money for Gaza- which went straight to Hamas.
• Demanding that Israel open up the Gaza borders, despite Hamas’s continued smuggling of weapons into the country.
• Calling Israel’s destruction of Arab homes built without permits “unhelpful and not in keeping with the obligations entered into under the roadmap.” (The Arab’s consistent violation of the Oslo sham never bothers Jew haters.)
• Relentless efforts to strengthen Fatah and create a “Palestinian State.”
And then we have the never-ending scandals of cover-ups, betrayals, and general dishonesty relating to her tenure as Secretary of State. The notorious Benghazi cover-up where her actions led to the murder of Americans. The more recent investigation into her personal server boggles the mind when one considers how much she endangered American security. And yet the recent FBI decision not to indict her despite mountains of evidence shows the degree of corruption rooted in Obama’s Department of Justice and the FBI. And the financial scandals documented in the recent book “Clinton Cash” and upcoming movie prove that the Clinton’s are a veritable mafia.
Hillary is a clever chameleon, but at the core she’s a vindictive, nasty, shrill, Jew-hating bigot, a peripatetic predator from Illinois, Arkansas, a carpetbagger Senator from NY, and Washington D.C. A racist liberal who exploits the easily exploited for political gain. A ruthless shark who will do anything to obtain power, flout the law with haughty disregard to retain it, and continue to wreak havoc on American society.
President Hillary Clinton would be the death rattle for the United States of America it does not deserve. It is a moral nation in a world of evil. And yet, the desire to keep her from obtaining the presidency is not enough, since an unfettered Hillary is a disgrace to every decent standard of justice. Just like Obama, Hillary deserves nothing less than a prison jumpsuit. This should be the ultimate goal: disgraced and incarcerated for life, at the very least. The Founding Fathers would surely have had another suggestion for justice. Political correctness be damned. If ever someone in high office deserved such a fate…
My ultimate interest is for the survival of Israel, as a strong, independent, G-d-fearing nation based upon Torah principles. Yet every Jew who lived in America with a sense of hakarat hatov, should wish the best for a country that offered millions of Jews something no other nation in history gave them: a rare reprieve from death and government legislated anti-Semitism. Had the Founding Fathers been not made of such fine character, America could have easily replicated the European model of anti-Semitism. And this is not to ignore or minimize American anti-Semitism past and present. It existed and continues to exist. In government the State Department remains one of the most Jew hating branches. Yet the country as it was established allowed for the accommodation of Jews. This is not to present the notion that America should remain a homeland for Jews. History has taught the Jew that things can change, and that change will eventually happen. But we should be appreciative….
We Jews will survive. Israel will survive, because of the Divine promise. America may not. Righteous gentiles deserve to survive and thrive in America, if they stand up for what’s right and face the G-dless threats in their midst. America’s leadership has set the country upon the path of Sodom and Gomorrah. America must choose the best of the worst, because the worst is a veritable virus. America must support Israel if it desires the Divine promise, rather than the curses of those who curse us.
A warning to sane Americans who want to see their country recover from eight years of Obama’s destruction: Obama will leave America hemorrhaging on all fronts. A Clinton presidency will see America irrevocably changed, economically, socially, and militarily. Israel too will suffer, because Hillary hates Jews and Israel. The fact that she can always trot out the familiar cadre of Jewish faces to support her, even Orthodox ones with rabbinical ordination, does nothing to change this fact. (And Heaven Forbid if she is elected, it is very likely that the same Orthodox rabbi who accepted Obama’s invite, will attend her swearing in ceremony at the National Church.) This is the age that we live in. Yet, Hillary’s true legacy should alarm sensible Jews and gentiles, who appreciate that most of contemporary liberalism’s basic tenets are anathema to decency.
A call to all American gentiles who have a cognizance of a Creator:
America’s descent into the cesspool of deviance, deprivations, and immorality will not be stifled by the continued worship of a pagan Man-G-d. Only The Almighty, the One True G-d will save a once great nation from destruction. Will Bible believers finally wake up and use their intellect to return to the true worship of G-d?
It is time for American gentiles to evolve and abandon higher paganism. G-d fearing gentiles need to embrace the “7 Laws of Noah” as an ever-growing number of righteous gentiles’ world-wide have. This represents the only antidote for the rampant secularization which leads to societal depravities legislated by government, and the ironic growth and appeasement of savage Islam. By doing so, America will merit The Almighty’s blessings as promised to Abraham. If Americans fail to heed the call, the country will ultimately fall prey to the monotheistic murderers who worship a blood deity. Jesus will not save anyone.
Donald Trump is a necessary Band-Aid for the time being, since man does not rely on miracles. But recognize the import of this historical moment. Populism will not stop the bleeding nor will it make America “great again,” nor will Christian solutions. Three may be better than thirty, but true monotheism eludes most Americans, and this is anathema to G-d’s Will. The true bible precludes the possibility of replacement. The Master of All remains the ultimate solution, for Jew and gentile alike.
To all gentiles, who may not want to hear this last point, I say these words with respect and concern for decent gentiles, and out of a sense of Jewish duty. As Jews we have a mandate to spread a message to the world, but it’s not to advocate for “woman’s rights” (abortion on demand) or act as shameless surrogates for liberal politicians. This is what happens when Judaism is turned on its head. We have a mission to bring the knowledge of G-d to the world. It started with the patriarch Abraham, who epitomized intelligent man’s true quest for G-d.
In the meantime, Hillary Clinton looms like a monsoon on the horizon. Corruption personified. A cruel person with the blood of so many on her negligent, incompetent hands. May we see her downfall.
On Monday America celebrated the 240th anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence, which condemned King George III for “(obstructing) the Administration of Justice.” On Tuesday the American left celebrated as the federal government obstructed the administration of justice on behalf of one of its ruling families, the Clintons.
Last week the attorney general of the United States met with former President Bill Clinton, whose wife and foundation were under FBI investigation. They both insisted nothing untoward happened. Days later The New York Times reported that Hillary Clinton might offer Lynch a position in her administration.
Over the holiday weekend the Obama administration announced that President Obama would fly to North Carolina with Clinton aboard Air Force One in order to campaign with her. Americans would, in part, foot the bill for the travel.
On Tuesday FBI Director James Comey called a supposedly impromptu press conference to announce his findings in the investigation of Clinton’s private email server. He began by announcing that nobody knew what he was about to say, which seems implausible given that Obama was preparing to go onstage with Clinton at the time. Is it even within the realm of imagination that Obama would stand next to Clinton hours after Comey announced the intent to prosecute her? Of course not.
Then, Comey proceeded to lay out all the reasons why Clinton should have been indicted: She set up multiple private email servers, all of which were vulnerable to hack; she did not set them up in order to use one mobile device, as she has so often stated; she transmitted and received highly classified material; her team deleted emails that could have contained relevant and classified information; she knew that classified information was crossing her server. He concluded that Clinton’s team was “extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.”
This was all criminal activity.
But Clinton is a member of the Royal Family. Thus, said Comey, she was innocent. Comey tried to say he wouldn’t recommend prosecution because she didn’t have the requisite intent, but the law doesn’t require intent; it requires merely “gross negligence” under 18 U.S.C. 793. In fact, even the level of intent required to charge under statutes like 18 U.S.C. 1924 and 18 U.S.C. 798 was clearly met: the intent to place classified information in a non-approved, non-classified place.
Nonetheless, Clinton would be allowed to roam free — and become president. “To be clear,” Comey intoned, “this is not to suggest that in similar circumstances, a person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences. To the contrary, those individuals are often subject to security or administrative sanctions. But that is not what we are deciding now.”
One rule for the peons, one for the potentates.
This is the Wilsonian legacy, finally achieved after a century of waiting: the Big Man (or Woman), unanswerable to the law, approved by the population without regard to equality under the law. We now elect our dictators. And they are unanswerable to us — except, presumably, once every four years. The commonfolk, on the other hand, find themselves on the wrong side of the government gun every day.
Tyranny doesn’t start with jackboots. It begins with the notion that a different law applies to the powerful than to the powerless. Under Barack Obama tyranny has become a way of life. Ronald Reagan always said that freedom was one generation away from extinction. It looks like we’ve finally found that generation.
