The media keep telling anyone who will listen that Trumps’ “Deplorables” are uneducated blue collar types, disgruntled homophobes, bigots, Islamophobic, degenerates filled with paranoia.. Never has the media or the Democrat Party been more unaware of reality. Let’s face the one fact the media doesn’t want to report, the people being called deplorable are fed up with candidates who want to maintain the status quo. They are fed up with being treated as if they are disposable, their jobs taken from them through government regulations and the callous attitude of the elite politicians who never listen to the voters who have put them into their offices in the first place. They are fed up with crony capitalism, Congressional insider trading (which should be against the law but, is exempted) and the “we know better so just shut up crowd” on the Hill. They are fed up with being called names like “racist” when the policies of a black President doesn’t include them and makes their lives less pleasant (Obamacare) or accused of being sexist if they refuse to vote for a female (Clinton) because her policies go too far to the left (open borders and amnesty). They are fed up with the middle class being sucked dry by taxes and inflation caused by over regulation (energy sector) and soaring food prices (EPA and Dept. of Interior)and losing their jobs to H-1b workers. By attacking the voters, both Obama (you blacks better vote for Hillary to seal his legacy) and Hillary stepped way over the line. They both play a dangerous game with our lives by using victimhood as a reason to vote for Hillary making divisive statements and pandering.
We are definitely in need of major immigration reform starting with the H-1b visa program. Middle class losing their employment to too many foreign workers. It needs to be reined in and quickly.
She hates us. We are deplorable. We are irredeemable. And so neither she nor her loyal minions have any self-imposed moral limits on what they may do to us to ensure that we are utterly crushed. Take away our rights? Strip away our livelihoods? Prevent our participation in our own governance? It’s open season on us, all because she hates us.
Except real Americans don’t react well to being told to shut up and slink away while the elite decides how things are going to be.
We’ve seen the mess Clinton and Obama have made of the ME and some African states (Libya) and that great Russian reset. We know the lies coming out concerning the Iran nuclear deal. We know what abject failures their policies have been all over the world. We know Clinton wants open borders and has said Obama’s executive edicts haven’t gone far enough. We know she’s for tax hikes and, it won’t be the rich who get soaked. Four years of Clinton in the White House will be nothing more than a psychodrama which we will all be dragged into whether we like it or not.
Update: Clinton calls herself the “Senator of Punjab” too. Says “Americans are unemployable”
Can’t admit to any of their failed foreign policies. White House holds up bi-partisan bill to sanction Assad. Dems crater even though the bill was introduced by one of them, Rep Engle of NY
She finally did it, Good ol’ Hillary stepped over the line. The rapist enabler, misogynistic, minority hating, destroyer of countries (along with Obama), Islamic terrorist enabler (causing so much grief in the EU) has attacked millions of American voters. Her simpering, smug, better than thou entitled attitude has always been distasteful but, now she is just plain trashy and has crossed a line. You don’t trash millions of Americans and expect to get my vote. Not going to happen. She may really “regret” using the words “basket of deplorables”, which really isn’t any kind of apology, in the upcoming election. What kind of self proclaimed uniter says that in a live broadcast?
As for the lily white upstanding FBI Director: Via Breitbart……all is not what it seems. You can decide this one.
Everyone on the left, media especially, keeps saying Hillary’s health should not be questioned. We should question any candidates health. What happened at the Memorial on Sunday, 9/11? What caused her to almost collapse and have to be whisked away by her handlers? From what can be gleaned, she was stepping off a curb and almost went to her knees. Her handlers grabbed her up, put her in her SUV, and off they went. This from an eyewitness standing about 15 feet away and reported by FOX. Poor thing even lost a shoe in all the hubbub. Questioning her health is not un-American, it’s imperative we do so. For this to happen in a very public commemoration ceremony with thousands of people present isn’t something her aides and supporters in the media can hide from the public. Maybe she needs to triple up on those antihistamines if her “allergies” are that bad, non? Her campaign will probably come up with a grand statement to cover this medical episode. My favorite one will be how she became so overwhelmed with emotion by the suffering of the 9/11 victims of Islamic terrorism and the statements of their families at the service. Whatever they tell you will be a lie. Bet on it.
Don’t forget Benghazi Islamic terror attack also happened on 9/11. Read more here
Last month, I retired from the State Department after 25 years of public service as a Foreign Service officer. As the Deputy Chief of Mission for Libya, I was the last person in Tripoli to speak with Ambassador Chris Stevens before he was murdered in the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on our Benghazi post. On this, the fourth anniversary of the Benghazi tragedy, I would like to offer a different explanation for Benghazi’s relevance to the presidential election than is usually found in the press.
This unforgivable act of betrayal by Clinton and Patrick Kennedy is more evidence of why Hillary has a poor concept of responsibility when it comes to security. It’s possible she was so busy meeting with all the special people who donated to the Clinton Corruption Enterprise, better known as the Clinton Foundation, she didn’t have the time to fulfill her duties as SoS. It pains me to know she will never be held accountable or prosecuted for the enormous harm she has caused to this country. Yes indeed, she is the sole person responsible for the expansion of Islamic terrorism in Libya. She definitely has a lot of blood on her hands in Libya.
Remember them: via Instapundit
Forgetfulness occurs when those who have been long inured to civilized order can no longer remember a time in which they had to wonder whether their crops would grow to maturity without being stolen or their children sold into slavery by a victorious foe.
They forget that in time of danger, in the face of the Enemy, they must trust and confide in each other, or perish.
They forget, in short, that there has ever been a category of human experience called the Enemy. And that, before 9/11, was what had happened to us. The very concept of the Enemy had been banished from our moral and political vocabulary. An enemy was just a friend we hadn’t done enough for — yet. Or perhaps there had been a misunderstanding, or an oversight on our part — something that we could correct. And this means that that our first task is that we must try to grasp what the concept of the Enemy really means.
The Enemy is someone who is willing to die in order to kill you. And while it is true that the Enemy always hates us for a reason — it is his reason, and not ours
What a shame, Trump has made it impossible for “Her” to go to Mexico. She has had to reject the invite due to the “diplomatic incident” Trump has caused. Since Pina Nieto gave a contradictory statement to that of Trump, the greatest diplomat known to mankind refuses to even speak to or, with him. With all her experience as a brilliant statesman why not go and smooth things over? After all, she is the most competent person to be President that the world has ever seen in the history of the US, according to Obama. she stated Trump didn’t know how to communicate diplomatically with Nieto. So, that’s “Her” excuse to not communicate at all? Where’s all that “fight for you” talk now? If she can’t deal with a small incident like that one how will she deal with Putin or Xi Jiang or Khameini? Give me a break! She was out of her league as Secretary of State and she is way out of her league as a potential President of the US. It all sounds like another excuse to cover for her health issues or, maybe she needs a safe space to hide from all those micro aggressions from Trump.
An interesting fact no one in the media thinks is very interesting. Hot Air has the rest. Now you know why unemployment rate is touted as being so low.
Government employees in the United States outnumber manufacturing employees by 9,932,000, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Federal, state and local government employed 22,213,000 people in August, while the manufacturing sector employed 12,281,000.
The BLS has published seasonally-adjusted month-by-month employment data for both government and manufacturing going back to 1939. For half a century—from January 1939 through July 1989—manufacturing employment always exceeded government employment in the United States, according to these numbers.
More slimy connections with the Corruptocrat Clintons:
Funny how all the coincidental happenings bring the Clintons boatloads of cash. Tell me Hillary Clinton isn’t devious as they come. Don’t you love the “Donald Trump is worse than I am” meme she has going? Trump built a multi-million dollar business by actually working for it, Clintons built a multi-million dollar pay to play foundation by using political influence for their millions.
Love me some Diamond and Silk
Why would the reticent Clinton want to hold a press conference? She probably doesn’t remember all the lies she has already come up with to cover up the other lies she has told to cover up her corrupt and unethical maneuverings. So what does she do? She sticks like glue to her friends in high places to avoid questions from the press and, to collect boatloads of cash. Many on the right call Clinton incompetent but she is just being devious as well as an obvious liar. That whole “I don’t remember” is a ploy to cover up her deviousness and the lies upon lies she has told, It’s Been a Very Bad Week for Hillary, and the avoidance issue with the press, Hillary Clinton, rarely seen, rarely heard.
In the meantime Obama has decided his executive powers are enough to sign the new and improved climate deal at the G20 without benefit of Congress to ratify. To keep from having to go to Congress for ratification the agreement is being called a pact instead of a treaty. Read more at American Thinker
The White House argument for why Obama doesn’t need to get Senate approval is that the climate deal requires “an executive decision” rather than advice and consent of the Senate. If this is true, why did the Chinese president get his parliament’s approval for ratification? Why are most nations requiring a vote from their legislative bodies?
The Clintons have come up with another great idea and this one is absolutely “crazy”, as Trump has said. Bill thinks it would be just grand if Syrian immigrants were used to rebuild and rehab 10,000 homes in Detroit. What about giving those jobs to American workers who are already living there and need decent jobs? Every consideration should be taken to making sure Americans come first in any and all job markets in the US. As Dr. Carson said “we need to take care of our own people first”. We sure can’t take care of the whole world, no matter what Bill and Hillary think. It isn’t racist or anti-immigrant, as Hillary has suggested, to put Americans first in their own country.

Showing Hillary the love. Compare and contrast
Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild, a backer of Democrats and a friend of the Clintons’, made sure attendees did not grill Mrs. Clinton at the $100,000-per-couple lamb dinner Mrs. Forester de Rothschild hosted under a tent on the lawn of her oceanfront Martha’s Vineyard mansion.
“I said, ‘Let’s make it a nice night for her and show her our love,’” Mrs. Forester de Rothschild said.
The True Believers in the LSM are shocked to find out the truth about Clinton. The destruction of emails meant to be turned over to the State Dept., the 13 Blackberries and five laptops destroyed and lost never turned over to the State Dept. which contained classified information. Then there are the emails concerning Benghazi that you and I will never know about because of their classification. That is not incompetence, it’s a crime committed by devious Clinton and her aides and lawyers. Check out the video at Gateway Pundit
We had a huge medical scare a couple of months ago. My DH (Darling Husband) had a heart attack. Mild though it was, it has been a never ending round of doctor visits and tests. Needless to say it has been very stressful on all of us. Happily everything is looking up and we have him on the right track now (except for the broken foot, which is another story) and things are getting back to almost normal. Yay!
Speaking of scary things, listening to Clinton and her speech about the “alt-right” had to be the most paranoid “right wing conspiracy” she has yet to come up with to date. It all came down to everyone not agreeing with her, or voting for her, being a racist, misogynistic, bigot. Sort of hypocritical don’t you think? After all, who was the person who gave her best to destroy the lives of the women Bubba took advantage of, even rape was on his agenda. Who was the racist that started the birther meme and felt Obama should “know his place”? And, last but not least who is the bigot that shows so much intolerance for those who do not share her opinions. Clinton is the most unethical, power hungry, shallow individual that has ever run for the Presidency. Denying more security at the Benghazi post because of the “aesthetics” was one of the most unethical and egregious acts I can think of to date. Any Democrat voting for Clinton has really set the bar very low. Oh yeah, that stupid slogan “I’m With Her” just makes me cringe. It really should be “If You Like Your Job, You Can Keep Your Job”. Except if you happen to be a coal industry worker she plans on putting out of work or a small business she wants to wreck by taxing and regulating it to death. What a piece of work!
For more information on the Clinton way of employing their high ethical standards read Clarice Feldman at the American Thinker if you haven’t. A very interesting read.
Mob rule is winning. No one in the BLM movement waits for an investigation to be completed before they take to the streets in protest. The MSM foments racial hatred by assuming every black person shot by a police officer was due to race hate and reports it that way graphically. We have a President and, an Attorney General, who constantly tell us that we’re racist homophobic haters because of the color of our skin. We commit microaggressions by our very existence. Our own government has made us the enemy. In reality the real enemy to all of us has their asses parked in DC. Those who are favored by the political elite get a pass while the rest of us in the herd will never be treated as “special”. Shame on all of them. They are abhorrent and inspire loathing and disgust.
Read an interesting bit in the Mirror. They have a screen shot of a posting on Facebook before it was taken down.
‘Black Power group’ claims responsibility for police killings and warns of more assassinations to come
Don’t you just love all that “racial healing” Obama has brought about since he was elected?
Reading comments on different sites one would think the left (Bernie and Clinton) would demand their followers tone it down a bit. One commenter in particular said protesters should burn the city of Cleveland down for hosting the RNC. Since when is a business arrangement between the city and a private organization a reason for such a hate filled comment.
The ACLU went to court due to the 3.5 mile security circumference surrounding the venue. The city and the ACLU came to an agreement giving the protesters another 100 yards closer to vent. The protesters wanted to disrupt the whole downtown area and the lives of everyone working there. Not going to happen. Their rights end where everyone else’s begin.
Protesters have been told they cannot camp out at Edgewater Beach and will be arrested for trespass if they try to stay there after 11:00 PM. They say they will do it anyway, the law be damned. Since there are plenty of campgrounds in the surrounding areas, there really is no reason for any of them to trash our beaches. They can exercise their First Amendment rights but, have to follow the same laws the residents do.
The media hysteria on the left over the “Brexit” is so over the top it’s laughable. the doom and gloom crowd has decided prematurely what is going to happen before anything does.
From the Examiner
“Okay, xenophobic exclusionary nationalism. You won a few fights today. But you will lose in the long run,” said CNN contributor Sally Kohn.
An Esquire headline declared, “Some of the oldest, whitest people on Earth voted against monsters in their heads.”
“Brexit is a an [sic] incredibly sad victory for racists and bigots and much that is vile in the world,” said CBS News foreign correspondent Debora Patta.
Vox.com’s Zack Beauchamp added in a note of his own, “Congratulations to the U.K. for screwing over millions of people.”
He later penned an article titled, “Brexit isn’t about economics. It’s about xenophobia.”
Well, we’ve gone from the cries of “racism” to the new cries of “xenophobia”. The left is progressing but, not in a good way. Calling 52% of the voting public xenophobic is not a winning position to take. Besides, it’s really none of their business what UK voters prefer. We do know the losers want a do over, maybe they will win next time. The idea of voting until the people get it right and succumb to the elite has always been popular….with the elite. The media sure has a lot to say about everything, even when they get it so wrong so often. It seems the middle class is just fed up and not going to take it anymore. Looks as if it’s becoming a movement across the US and the EU. Calling names is not going to change anything. The left has used it so often as a mantra, we’ve become immune.
Due Process? What’s that? Via Weasel Zippers
UPDATE: The petition to vote again on Brexit is a prank. Brought to you by the kids of 4Chan. Via Gateway Pundit
The BBC, The Mirror, France 24, The Telegraph, Manchester Evening News, The Guardian… all reported on the bogus petition.
But they got punked. The poll was manufactured by 4Chan and Anonymous hackers who loaded up the signatures with fake names from The Vatican, Ghana, North Korea and elsewhere.
4Chan users were bragging about their prank online.
Rep Keith Ellison went on a familiar tirade saying Donald Trump and his vicious rhetoric was the cause of the Orlando shootings. He really is having a lot of difficulty facing the fact one of his co-religionists has committed a heinous and deplorable act of carnage. Rep Ellison, you can’t defend the indefensible.
Clinton at it again. Deny anyone on the FBI watch list their Constitutional rights.
If something horrifying happens, we must ignore due process and deny Americans their rights. To be safe. This was basically the argument many conservatives (and Democrats) made post-9/11 to help pass the Patriot Act, and it’s exactly the argument most liberals are making when they push gun bans to people on terror watch lists.
“If the FBI is watching you for suspected terrorist links,” Hillary Clinton said today in her supposedly apolitical speech, “you shouldn’t be able to just go buy a gun.”
Investigation of Orlando shooter called off by FBI. They assumed his co-workers were just being racists. Catherine Herridge explains
He admitted to the FBI he made the statements that he was accused of but, explained he only did this because he felt he was being “marginalized” and “teased” because of his religion. Obama’s PC purging of all references to Islam from training manuals has made the FBI blind and illiterate when it comes to Radical Islam and sharia.
Ernst says we should “have great confidence” in Obama and how well he has protected us. Then, went on to blame the R-words for the Orlando jihadi attack.
My question would be, Why, if they are so great at vetting, did they allow the Orlando shooter’s father into our country? After all, he is a vocal supporter for the Taliban and obviously a complete nutter himself.
Saudi Prince Salaam (sp?) has told the media they are funding 20% of Clinton’s campaign. Instapundit hits her on Twitter for her comment on FBI watch list. Shouldn’t she step down from her campaign? She’s under “criminal investigation” for undermining State security with her home brew server.
UPDATE: Listened to Obama speaking today. Boy is he mad at us. Not one ounce of empathy displayed for victims. A lot of anger on display for the “intolerance” of the American people (mostly Republicans) for stating the obvious Islam connection. The same old “this is not who we are” meme. He sounds so defensive, blame the guns, blame the internet, blame everything but the shooter and his perverted ideology. We don’t blame all Muslims for terrorism, but we do know the political religious ideology of the fundamentalists are causing world wide mayhem. What a pathetic small man to even suggest a political speech or words like “radical Islam” is going to change their belief or reality. It’s very simple, they hate the West and believe we all need to die, they hate religious minorities and Christians and are persecuting them mercilessly. If any refugees need our help it’s those who are being persecuted but, we don’t let them in as refugees. Obama the narcissistic moralist doesn’t seem to want them, just Muslims. He is the one discriminating against people for their religious beliefs, not us. When a politically based group wants to wipe out a whole group of people, be they Jews or Yazidis or Christians, that is the very definition of genocide. Where is Obama’s values and morality when it comes to genocide?
It isn’t the American people who are too intolerant for words, it is Islam as practiced by jihadists. It is the Imam preaching in the mosques who spouts it is compassionate to murder LGBT people. It is the hard core Muslims who hate everything we stand for that feel it is their duty to murder all those who neither agree with their ideology or live by their standards that are to blame. Obama refuses to acknowledge fundamentalist Islam is a huge problem for the West. He has told us, in the not too distant past, we can sustain another 911. Tell that to the parents and loved ones of the 103 dead and injured in the latest attack on American soil. I’m sure they will be happy to note that their loved ones were just collateral damage we can sustain.
John Podhoretz of the NYPOST:
Here again, and horribly, we have an unmistakable indication that Obama finds it astonishingly easy to divorce himself from a reality he doesn’t like — the reality of the Islamist terror war against the United States and how it is moving to our shores in the form of lone-wolf attacks.
The first thing everyone seems to concern themselves with is some sort of backlash to those who practice Islam. Tell me, how many mosques have been blown up and/or Muslims who have been gunned down due to “Islamophobia”?
So determined is the president to avoid the subject of Islamist, ISIS-inspired or ISIS-directed terrorism that he concluded his remarks with an astonishing insistence that “we need the strength and courage to change” our attitudes toward the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community.
Facts don’t seem to matter to Obama. He can’t seem to figure out the “motivation” behind the attack even when it’s obvious to almost everyone else. Being intentionally dishonest about this latest attack doesn’t change the facts.
