WikiLeaks Release Reveals Hillary Clinton's Connection to Wall Street

By Douglas V. Gibbs
Author, Speaker, Instructor, Radio Host

Hillary Clinton claims she is against big corporations and the greed of Wall Street.  However, it turns out that she not only does not have a problem with them, she's a part of the big corporation/Wall Street mess of corruption. . . and she always has been.  She's a liar and her connections to Wall Street are complex.  And, it turns out, her connections are more than political fundraising and paid public speaking appearances.  Her Clinton Foundation and her son-in-law’s hedge fund are also intertwined into Wall Street.

She got $21 million for her 2008 presidential campaign from Wall Street giants, and securities and investment workers were her third largest source of campaign donations behind lawyers and retirees. Citigroup employees donated $765,192.  Goldman Sachs employees donated $682,990. DLA Piper, Morgan Stanley, and JPMorgan Chase & Co also put in plenty of money.

Wall Street has also played a role in helping the Clintons rebuild their personal finances. While the Clintons at one time claimed to be broke, from 2000 to 2008 the Clinton pair jointly earned $109 million, much of it in the form of speaking fees, where many of the payers were Wall Street firms.

Barclays Capital, Citi Foundation and Fidelity Charitable Gift Fund have all given the Clinton's foundation between $1 million and $5 million. Bank of America Foundation, Barclays PLC, Citigroup Inc., McKinsey & Company and UBS Wealth Management USA have given between $500,000 and $1 million. Meanwhile, Deutsche Bank AG, Deutsche Bank Americas, Goldman Sachs Philanthropy Fund and Morgan Stanley Smith Barney Global Impact Funding Trust Inc. have all given between $251,000 and $500,000.

Chelsea Clinton’s husband, Goldman Sachs alum Marc Mezvinsky, is a founding partner in Eaglevale Partners LP, a $400 million hedge fund launched in 2011. A New York Times report found that “tens of millions of dollars raised by Eaglevale can be attributed to investors with some relationship or link to the Clintons.”

Among those investors are hedge fund managers Marc Lasry and James Leitner; an overseas money management firm connected to the Rothschild family; and Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd C. Blankfein. Rock Creek Group, a Washington-based investment advisory firm that briefly sublet office space to Mrs. Clinton after she stepped down as Secretary of State, placed $13 million from the California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS) and another public pension fund with Eaglevale in late 2011 and early 2012, according to the Times. The pension funds have subsequently withdrawn their investments; CalPERS left as it moved money away from hedge funds.

WiliLeaks' latest release reveals the Clintons were doing whatever they could to hide Hillary's Wall Street connections. . . you know, since she claims to have a problem with the wealthy corporate Wall Street enemies of the little guy.

Wikileaks Creates Havoc in Democrat Party

By Douglas V. Gibbs
Author, Speaker, Instructor, Radio Host

The fix has always been in.  The corruption of the Democrat Party is deeper than anyone was willing to admit.  Wikileaks has revealed the truth. . . or at least the tip of the iceberg of the truth.

Chaos.

Wikileaks has released nearly 20,000 emails it says are from the accounts of Democratic National Committee officials, right before the launch date of the Democrat Party convention in Philadelphia next week.  The leak of emails is emerging right after the FBI said Hillary Clinton is innocent of criminal wrong doing regarding her private server, and right before Queen Hillary is supposed to be crowned the Democrat Party nomination for President of the United States, 2016.

The hackers have not revealed the secret to their magic tricks, but the fact is they have the emails, and they have released them to the wild.

Part One of the series of the releases is called "Hillary Leaks."

The emails come from the accounts of seven DNC officials: communications director Luis Miranda, national finance director Jordon Kaplan, finance chief of staff Scott Comer, finance director of data and strategic initiatives Daniel Parrish, finance director Allen Zachary, senior advisor Andrew Wright and Northern California Finance Director and the finance director for northern California, Robert Stowe.

The emails range in date from Jan. 2015 to May 25 of this year.

To conservatives, the information in the leaked emails are no surprise.

When the protests erupted against Trump in Chicago, forcing him to cancel his speech, I knew that the protests were planned, organized, and orchestrated by the Democrat Party.  I have said on my radio program that the way to stop it would be to infiltrate the protests, and then start talking about to each other how many hundreds of dollars we were getting paid to be there.  The $50-$100 protesters who were shipped in would be angry, and throw down their signs.

It is amazing how conservative people can be when it comes to their own wallets.

The WikiLeaks email release show that yes, indeed, the Democrats planned, organized, and orchestrated the protests against Donald Trump.  The whole anti-Trump movement was created by the Democrats because the billionaire dared to run against them, and all of the NeverTrump folks out there are simply sheep following the lead put before them by the leaders of the Democrat Party.

Mindless sheep doing the bidding of the Liberal Left Democrats.

Intern involvement with protests is mentioned twice in the leaked emails. DNC communications director Luis Miranda bemoaned photos of an empty anti-Trump protest in Washington, D.C. in one email chain.

Miranda said, “Going forward, when our allies screw up and don’t deliver bodies in time, we either send all our interns out there or we stay away from it.. we don’t want to own a bad picture.”

DNC officials Brad Marshall, a chief financial officer, and Alan Reed, a compliance officer, also signed off on the use of Black Lives Matter organizer Deray McKesson as a surrogate for Hillary Clinton.

McKesson rose to prominence after being active in protests in Ferguson, MO and Baltimore, MD. He has yet to endorse a candidate and said protests are likely to happen at the upcoming Democratic Party convention.

Among the early casualties of the WikiLeaks release is Debbie Wasserman Schultz.  She has already announced that she will be stepping down as chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee at the end of the party's convention.  The resignation has been given because of pressure from top Democrats.  In the WikiLeaks release the emails show DNC staffers favoring Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders in the party's 2016 nominating contest - and launching an attack against Bernie Sanders that questions his religion.

The fix was always in.

A Democratic operative said Hispanic leaders close to Clinton and her high command were discussing Housing Secretary Julian Castro as a possible successor to Wasserman Schultz at the DNC helm.  Is this a way to scrub clean Julian's crimes from him, as Hillary's has been scrubbed from her?  After all, many Democrat Party insiders see Julian as the next great messiah of the liberal left agenda.

The DNC Rules Committee has named Rep. Marcia Fudge, D-Ohio, as permanent chair of the convention, according to a DNC source. She will gavel each session to order and will gavel each session closed.

"She's been quarantined," another top Democrat said of Wasserman Schultz, following a meeting Saturday night.
Democrat leaders are scrambling to keep the party united.

California Fires Claim Lives

By Douglas V. Gibbs
Author,SpeakerInstructorRadio Host

Drought conditions in California has left the countryside covered with drier than normal vegetation.

Sand Fire:  So named because it is believed to have started near Sand Canyon Road in Santa Clarita.  The Sand Fire has burned 32 square miles.  1,500 residents have been evacuated.  1 death has been reported, burned to death inside his own house.  The smoke from the fire has flowed into the Los Angeles area, as well as has falling ash.

Big Sur: At the Garrapata State Park near Big Sur a fire has caused the evacuation of 1,000 homes in Palo Colorado.

Erskine Fire: The Erskine Fire is in Kern County near Bakersfield, north of the Sand Fire.  It has burned 43,460 acres and 250 homes.  Two people were confirmed to have died in the fire.  The blaze forced hundreds of evacuations while damaging 75 other homes.  About 2,500 structures have been threatened by the blaze.  A total of 2,079 firefighters have battled the fire and three suffered smoke inhalation.

Already hot conditions are accompanying the blazes.

Brown Signs California Ghost Gun Bill

By Douglas V. Gibbs
Author,Speaker, Instructor, Radio Host

In California, homemade guns, or pieced-together guns, will now not only need to be registered, but you have to register it before you build it.  California Governor Jerry Brown signed the bill into law Friday.  You can build it, after you obtain a serial number for the weapon and submit to a background check.

The right to keep and bear arms is not a right, according to California lawmakers.  The author of the bill, Democrat California Assemblyman Jim Cooper, hopes the law will end the production of home-made, untraceable firearms, which have come to be called "ghost guns."

Hillary V.P. - Old White Guy Establishment Tim Kaine

By Douglas V. Gibbs
AuthorSpeakerInstructorRadio Host

The 2016 Presidential Campaign is practically a tie between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. . . so to make sure Trump takes the lead, Clinton chose Tim Kaine as her running mate.

The choice reveals Hillary Clinton's arrogance about her confidence in this presidential race.  Tim Kaine is a "safe" pick, but not a pick that Clinton will pick up any voters with.  She's not concerned, so why would she make an exciting pick?  About the only benefit in picking Kaine for Hillary's running-mate is that it might help her pick up the swing-State, Virginia.

Kaine is a white, male Democrat political insider who is a bit to the right on a handful of issues.  He served as the Chairman of the Democratic National Committee from 2009 until 2011, in addition to stints as Governor and Lieutenant Governor of Virginia after beginning his political career as the Mayor of Richmond.

Was Hillary thinking picking Kaine may get her the conservative Democrats who were considering running to Trump?  It sure wasn't a good pick to grab a hold of any of the Bernie supporters.

We are in an anti-establishment environment.  Brexit was an example of that.  Trump winning the GOP ticket is an example of that.  Bernie Sanders' popularity is an example of that.  Bernie is a far-left anti-establishment candidate, and for her V.P. pick, Hillary picked a not-so-left, considerably moderate (compared to her) establishment guy.  It was almost like she was trying to poke Bernie supporters in the eye.

Trump, during his acceptance speech, made a play for those disenchanted Bernie voters. . . pointing out that like Sanders, he's the anti-establishment guy.

The question is, how many Bernie Sanders' sheep are so angry at the establishment, and Hillary, that they are willing to go for Trump?  A third of them?  I am willing to bet a third will still be willing to vote for Hillary, too.  As for that last third, they will either stay home, or go independent.

In other words, when it comes to Bernie fans, in the end it really doesn't matter.

What is working in Trump's favor is that his message is pretty conservative.  Whether or not he completely believes his language is another matter.  But, I believe over 60% of this country is conservative, whether they know it or not, and those folks are attracted to that message.  So, in pure numbers, electorally, Trump is the winner. . . the question is: will it be enough votes to overcome the election fraud the Democrat Party will engage in (as they do every election)?

Next Target Should be Corruption of Clinton Foundation

By Douglas V. Gibbs

According to the Observer, the corruption of the Clinton Foundation should be the next thing investigated by the FBI:

North Florida-based Congresswoman Corinne Brown is the latest Clinton superdelegate to receive an indictment for corruption and ethics violations. Brown allegedly received $800,000 from an organization called One Door For Education under false pretenses that the funds would be used for charitable purposes. One Door For Education touts itself as a nonprofit, but is not legally registered as such.

Brown is just one of several Clinton superdelegates to recently be exposed for fraudulent activity. Late last month, Congressman Chaka Fattah was convicted on charges of racketeering, corruption and stealing charitable funds. Sen. Bob Menendez, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Gov. Dannel Malloy and the former Virginia governor who served as Clinton’s 2008 campaign chair, Terry McAuliffe, are also in the midst of corruption probes.

It would appear that only Hillary and Bill truly seem to understand how to launder funds for political favors, with the Clinton Foundation front and center for aspiring pupils of white-collar crime.

Hillary’s deputy chief of staff, Huma Abedin, received money from the Clinton Foundation (while employed by the State Department) and from Teneo Consulting—a firm owned by a close Clinton associate, Declan Kelly. Kelly built his network while working at the State Department under Hillary Clinton. In April, Politicoreported that Kelly’s relationship with Clinton’s State Department, “represents a fresh illustration of the blurring of the lines between Hillary Clinton’s political network and her State Department that critics have long noted.”

In 2011, ABC News revealed Rajiv Fernando, a Clinton Foundation donor, was appointed to an Intelligence Board at the State Department by Clinton despite having no background or qualifications for the role. Shortly after ABC began asking questions, Fernando quietly resigned.

The Clinton Foundation also paid Sidney Blumenthal $200,000 a month to adviseHillary Clinton on State Department matters. According to The Hill, the FBI has yet to rule out the Clinton Foundation‘s influence on Hillary Clinton‘s State Department, as there have been multiple conflicts of interest between the two.

An investigation by Vox revealed at least 181 Clinton Foundation donors lobbied the State Department while Hillary Clinton served as secretary of state. UBS, for example, paid Bill Clinton $1.5 million in speaking fees shortly after Hillary Clintonhelped the Swiss bank settle a lawsuit with the IRS—for a fraction of what the IRS initially sought.

Clinton Foundation donations have also been linked to State Department favors for weapons manufacturers and foreign governments. Peter Schweitzer’s book, Clinton Cash, cites four trustees of the Clinton Foundation charged with or convicted of financial crimes. Aside from the security risks her private email server posed, evidence suggests Clinton’s intent was not convenience, but rather to circumvent FOIA laws.

International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde On Trial for Finance and Political Corruption

By Douglas V. Gibbs
Author, Speaker, Instructor, Radio Host

The arrogance of liberal leftists are a worldwide phenomenon.

Like pretty much every liberal leftist statist socialist collectivist puke, European lefties are a bunch of criminals, too.  It seems like corruption and statism go hand in hand.  In the case of International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde, France's high court has ruled that she must stand for a 2008 arbitration ruling that handed 400 million euros to a politically-connected business magnate.

Lagarde, at the time, was the French finance minister.  Her crime, which she has denied committing, of course, involves corruption with tycoon Bernard Tapie.

She is accused of negligence in a case regarding Tapie.

Last December a special court ruled Lagarde should stand trial, but she appealed.  This week the appeal was rejected.

The accusations arose about the time Lagarde was grabbing the reins of the IMF. . . after her predecessor was accused of sexual misconduct. . . another leftist norm.

The penalty, should she be found to have been negligent in the case as a person invested with public authority, could be up to a year in prison and a 15,000 euro ($16,500) fine.

The case is part of a larger legal saga centering on Tapie, a flamboyant magnate and TV star who had sued French bank Credit Lyonnais for its handling of the sale of his majority stake in sportswear company Adidas in the mid-1990s. With Lagarde's approval, a private arbitration panel ruled that he should get 400 million euros in compensation, including interest.

The deal was seen by critics as a sign of a too-close relationship between magnates and the French political elite. Tapie was close to then-President Nicolas Sarkozy, Lagarde's boss.

In a separate part of the case, Tapie has been ordered to pay back the entire 400 million euros. An appeals decision is pending. He could also face a criminal trial on fraud charges, which would be separate from the Lagarde trial.

If Lagarde has the tendrils of corruption that are dug in as deep as Hillary Clinton's, she'll likely be accused of wrong-doing, found to have committed wrong-doing, but there won't be enough evidence to prosecute her to the full extent of the law, and she'll get a little tap on the wrist - and then will be given a step up in authority.

The Fall of Julian Castro

By Douglas V. Gibbs
Author, Speaker, Instructor, Radio Host

Over the last few years I predicted that Julian Castro was the next rising star in the Democrat Party.  He's very Obamaesque.  A young, good looking Latino, Julian as Mayor of San Antonio had made a blockbuster speech at the DNC in 2012, and was ready to go federal.  Then, when he was appointed Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, I was sure that was the move the Democrats felt was necessary to move Castro closer to the White House.  Early on in Hillary Clinton's campaign, Julian Castro was among the favorites to be chosen as her running mate.

Then, Castro got caught acting like a Democrat.

For Democrats, criminal behavior is not a big deal.  And, as Hillary has reminded us, getting caught is usually no big deal, either.  But, in Julian's case, it might be a bigger deal than he may believe.

The U.S. Office of Special Counsel (OSC) released a report which found that Julian Castro violated the Hatch Act and broke federal law when he voiced his support for Hillary Clinton during an interview back in April.

Castro was speaking to Yahoo News when he was asked about Clinton’s likely bid for the presidency. Castro responded by praising Clinton and then criticizing all of her likely opponents in the Republican Party.

As explained in the accompanying report, OSC concluded that Secretary Castro violated the Hatch Act by advocating for and against Presidential candidates while giving a media interview in his official capacity on April 4, 2016. Secretary Castro’s statements during the interview impermissibly mixed his personal political views with official agency business despite his efforts to clarify that some answers were being given in his personal capacity.

As if that is new behavior by Democrats. . .

The Hatch Act prohibits federal employees from using their official authority or influence to affect the outcome of an election. While federal employees are permitted to make partisan remarks when speaking in their personal capacity, the Hatch Act restricts employees from doing so when using an official title or when speaking about agency business.

In response to being informed that he had violated the Hatch Act, Castro refused to apologize and instead chose to promise that in the future the government would provide better training on the issue.

He refused to apologize because like most Democrats he (a) views himself as being above the law, and (b) when it comes to forwarding the leftist agenda there are no rules.  He's probably surprised anyone even cares that he broke the law.

“In responding to a journalist’s question about the 2016 election, I offered my opinion to the interviewer after making it clear that I was articulating my personal view and not an official position. At the time, I believed that this disclaimer was what was required by the Hatch Act. However, your analysis provides that it was not sufficient.”

Interestingly, he blamed a lack of education about the Hatch Act as being the problem.  His speech to the DNC in 2012 that essentially launched him into the limelight was about how important it is to be educated.

Likely, this will set Julian back a little.  He won't likely get Hillary's offer to be her running-mate in the 2016 presidential election (although I won't completely count out the possibility), and he may have to wait a while to continue his climb up the Democrat Party ladder.  Voters forget, and corruption always finds a way to reward criminals like Julian Castro.

You know, like it has been for Hillary.

Munich, Germany Shopping Center Shooting

By Douglas V. Gibbs
Author, Speaker, Instructor, Radio Host

At the Munich Olympia Shopping Center in Germany a mass shooting has led to multiple deaths.  At this point, the exact number of dead is not available.  Police are estimating a large number of casualties.  The second attack in Germany in a matter of days, the first an ax attack on a train, this shooting reminds us how even in a country with very strict gun control laws the bad guys have access to guns.

Update: Police believe there may be three shooters.  Growing panic as shooters remain on the loose, and on the run.

Update: At Least Six People Reported as Killed.

Update: One shooter used handgun on the street outside McDonald's at a Shopping Mall in Munich.  Another used a handgun from top of parking structure.

Update: Gunmen are still on the loose.

Update: Police say terror attack is suspected, may be connected to refugees coming into the country.

Update: Unconfirmed reports of further violence at City Center, as well.

Update: At least nine people were killed.  21 hurt.  Police searched for attackers, thinking there might be three, and found a man who had killed himself on a side street near Olympia shopping mall. Based on surveillance video and witness statements, police concluded he was the sole gunman.  Attacker was determined to be an 18-year-old Iranian immigrant in Munich for at least two years.  Children are among the dead.  16 people remain hospitalized.

The Unlikely President

By Douglas V. Gibbs
Author, Speaker, Instructor, Radio Host
I missed Donald Trump's acceptance speech last night.  I was speaking to a Tea Party group about the Constitution, and the strategies those who oppose the Constitution are waging against our American System.  So, this morning I got up and found Mr. Trump's speech online.  As I viewed and read the transcript of Donald Trump's speech to accept the nomination as the Republican Candidate in the 2016 Presidential Election this morning, I got to thinking about how early in this campaign season just about everybody was saying a Trump nomination was very unlikely.  Politico said there was no doubt it would be Hillary versus Jeb Bush.  Across the pond they assured us that Donald Trump would not win the nomination.  CNN carefully explained that an analysis found that Trump only had a 1% chance to win the nomination.

It turns out the experts were grossly wrong.

These are the same experts, by the way, who are also saying that Trump can't beat Hillary Clinton in the General Election . . . yet, Trump's numbers keep climbing.

Early on I was a Scott Walker supporter.  Walker is a strong conservative who carries a huge amount of testicular fortitude that few Republican politicians in this day and age seem to be able to muster.  Walker took on the labor unions in Wisconsin, and won.  He took on the hordes of Democrats trying to force him out of office with a recall vote, and won.  And he did all this while articulating, and applying, conservative principles. . . in a blue State.  Walker was out of the race for the White House early.  Now, I'd love to see Scott Walker as the Labor Secretary.

As the candidates were fighting tooth and nail, and the early dropouts rolled out of the picture, the experts said a Trump nomination was very unlikely.  I have to admit, I was not necessarily a Trump fan.  Of the original 17, he was number 15 on my list. . . barely ahead of Kasich and Christie.  Yet, here he is.  Donald Trump, last night, not only accepted the nomination as the Republican nominee for President of the United States, but he achieved it in record fashion - with more votes than any candidate for the GOP in history, shattering the record by 1.4 million votes.

The Democrats are lashing out, calling Trump and his running mate Mike Pence, "Small, insecure, weak men."  They have to call their opponents nasty little names because the Democrats are incapable of winning an argument if they focus on policy and ideas.  The Democrats are waging a Marxist revolution, and they do not want you to notice.

During Mr. Trump's speech, I did not hear insecurity or weakness.  Trump is a strong figure.  That is part of the reason he is leading the GOP into the November election.  He's willing to say the things the wimps of the Republican Party are too fearful to say.

I just hope that Trump is being honest, and that he surrounds himself with people who knows the authorities of the federal government.

That said, Mr. Trump is not the perfect candidate.  He has a good deal of flaws that may become problematic during his presidency, should he win in November.  But, first of all it's our job to make sure he stays on track, it is important that Congress acts as it should as the check against the President, and lastly, even with all of his flaws, Mr. Trump is not the Marxist who hates the America System we know as Hillary Clinton.  I will take Mr. Trump.  Flaws and all.

I truly believe that Mr. Trump loves America.  I believe he wants to make America Great Again.  I also agree he is a man with a huge ego as his opposition claims. . . but isn't that kind of confidence in oneself necessary to take on such a huge job such as President of the United States?

Let's not confuse Mr. Trump's confidence with Obama's arrogance, by the way.

Obama does for himself, Mr. Trump wants to do for America.  In many way, Mr. Trump is also a humble man.  I think he realizes the monumental task ahead of him, and that he can't do it all by himself.  So far, beginning with Pence, Mr. Trump is doing as most successful businessmen do. . . he is surrounding himself with a good team.

Henry Ford was once asked about his success, and how he got where he was, and Ford responded, "I surrounded myself with people smarter than me, and did what they told me to do."

I hope Trump is of the same mindset.

By the way, if Mr. Trump needs an adviser regarding the United States Constitution, I am available.

MSNBC Seeks to Protect Democrat Snowflakes

By Douglas V. Gibbs
Author, Speaker, Instructor, Radio Host

Normally, warnings about harsh images are given because there may be violence, blood, or nudity. MSNBC's Rachel Maddow felt the delicate sensibilities of the Democrats who watches her television program also needed to be protected from something even more harsh. . . buttons that dare to criticize the Democrat Queen, Hillary Clinton.

“You may find it uncomfortable. And so, you may not want to look at this stuff. But these are some of the pins that are being sold at the venue,” said Maddow, probably horrified, herself.

Then, she showed images of buttons including ones that read “Hillary for prison” and “Vote no to Monica’s ex-boyfriend’s wife in 2016.”

The Horror!

I carried a "Hillary for Prison, 2016" sign at an Independence Day Parade, and two liberal left Democrats approached me afterward, horrified I would do such a thing.  One said I "crossed the line," and the other said it was "inappropriate."  I wonder if they had a problem with the anti-Bush crap a decade ago that was popping up all over the place, that were more nasty than my sign?

According to Maddow, the accursed buttons she showed were seen at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, and the horrifying reality that there are actually those who see through the lies and realize Hillary Clinton is a collectivist who stands against the U.S. Constitution out there who will actually vote for Trump was too horrifying to dump on MSNBC viewers without a warning.

The hateful propaganda and images of nooses around Bush's neck a decade ago, however, was just fine.

Maddow's treehouse of horrors continued, as she told her audience how people on the floor at the RNC were "calling Hillary Clinton a bitch," and "referring to her breasts and thighs and left-wing and all of those other things. That's part of the merchandise of the RNC.”

I'm not one to use such language, and ad hominem attacks are never recommended, but while I was watching Bill Maher, the language and ad hominem attacks against Republicans, and more specifically Trump and his family, made Maddow's observations seem tame.

Ah, but I guess in their double-standard world, that was just fine.

The history of MSNBC's rhetoric against Bush is even worse that what Maher dishes out.

But, that's fine, too. After all, they are superior, and the ends justifies the means, right?

What amazes me is that the Democrat voters are that easily offended?  How about those delicate little snowflakes suck it up, realize politics is a nasty game, and be willing to hear what the other side says.  Hey, they might even grow a pair. . . but, then again, that would make them Republicans.

Bill Maher: "The A**holes Cheered the Police"

By Douglas V. Gibbs
Author, Speaker, Instructor, Radio Host

HBO was on the television in the hotel room.  I am not a fan of Bill Maher, and I usually avoid his hateful and uninformed rhetoric.  But, the channel was set, my wife was asleep, and she had the remote nuzzled up against her body, somewhere.  I was writing as I enjoyed the ocean view from my hotel room window. . . so, I left it on Maher's program.

I am not going to regurgitate the transcript.  It was all a load of crap.  He had guests, one of which was Michael Moore, and they chuckled with him as he launched into his profanity and hateful tone.

The topic, of course, was the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, and the rhetoric was more based on liberal left propaganda than truth.

I know the liberal left is warped.  I know they believe the criminals lies before they believe the testimony of the men in blue, and in the State of Virginia the liberal left democrat governor is actually working to restore voting rights to felons.  In the case of Freddie Gray in Baltimore, the Democrats have spun all of the evidence to scream that poor Freddie was attacked and killed by the police, yet the evidence says otherwise.  As a result of the evidence, so far four police officers have been acquitted.  As we see leftists out there targeting and killing police, when we receive encouraging news regarding the police, it should be cheered.  At the Republican National Convention, the acquittal of the innocent police officers in Baltimore was cheered. . . and the Democrats can't stand it.

Bill Maher said of it, "The A**holes cheered the police," referring to the Baltimore acquittals.

Is Bill Maher so bloodthirsty that he is willing to jump on the "violence against police" bandwagon begun by Obama and Hillary?  Is his hate for police so bad that he supports the targeting of the police for trying to do their job?  Do the liberal left nutcases like Bill Maher truly believe that cops are purposely targeting blacks and deserved to be killed for it?

I knew before the program began that Maher was a worthless piece of human flesh.  On last night's program, he confirmed it for me.

Ted Cruz at the RNC

By Douglas V. Gibbs
Author, Speaker, Instructor, Radio Host

I think Scott Walker said it best: "A vote for anyone other than Trump is a vote for Hillary."

I admit it.  In the beginning, of the original 17, Trump was my number 15.  Scott Walker was my number one, and Rand Paul was second.  I liked Cruz, but I could not get past the fact that he is not eligible to be President of the United States.  Natural Born Citizen requires both parents at the time of birth to have been citizens of the country.

Cruz's speech at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland was answered by a mixture of cheers and boos.  He refused to abide by the agreement to support whoever wins the nomination, and he made a spectacle of himself.  Cruz was speaking like he was preparing for 2020.  After his antics in Cleveland, he'll be lucky if he remains in the U.S. Senate after his term is up.

I am not a fan of Trump, but Hillary is something worse.  I wish Cruz, and the "NeverTrump" crowd, could see that.

Bots Rock the Vote

By Douglas V. Gibbs
Author, Speaker, Instructor, Radio Host

Technology during election season has been the Democrat Party's strong suit.  The liberal left has an incredible email campaign, and their use of bots is not only phenomenal, but most people don't even realize it when they are dealing with bots.

When trying to figure out how to vote, most people seem to think other people are more informed, so they make their research a social endeavor.  Being politically informed, for most people, is too difficult a task.  They would rather be told how to vote.

Enter, stage left, software robots specifically designed to deceive them.

What is even worse, the bots have gotten so advanced that most folks don't even know they are communicating with something that isn't even human.

Twitter, for example, two years ago, had more than 23 million of its active user accounts being run by “bots”.  The bots advised of news and world events, and even interacted with human users.

The bots were so effective that they actually swayed public opinion - not just in the United States, but in other regions as well.  In fact, the leftists have been influencing elections through social media bots for over a decade.

In Britain's Brexit vote, evidence is emerging that there was significant bot activity ahead of Britain’s vote to leave the European Union.

In the U.S. bots are currently being used by both sides in the 2016 presidential race for the White House.  Bots of various kinds operate 24 hours a day, and account for about 50 percent of all activity on the web.

According to the Central American hacker, SepĂșlveda, peoples’ opinions tend to be swayed more by views they see as coming spontaneously from real people than by views expressed on television or in newspapers.

Oxford Professor Philip Howard, who led the research on Brexit, and Samuel Woolley of the University of Washington suggest that the first step towards a solution is to make it easier for everyone to recognize bots.

People need to know with whom or what they are interacting on the internet.  Surely, a free market incentive exists to give folks a way to tell.

Government won't help.  The bots work in their favor when it comes to the grand deception.

Violent Overthrow of Herr Fuhrer Trump

By Douglas V. Gibbs
Author, Speaker, Instructor, Radio Host

The amazing thing about the propaganda against Donald Trump is that all of it is founded on absolutely no evidence.  Did you notice that Trump was never considered a racist until he was willing to put an "R" after his name, and run against Democrats?  The most amazing part of it all is how far the liberal left democrats are willing to take the rhetoric.  It's almost as if they believe their own bullshit.

A case in point is an article in the Los Angeles Times by Jamie Kirchick where the writer's hate for Donald Trump, and fear that he may be the next Adolf Hitler, is so fierce that Mr. Kirchick suggests there should be a military coup staged against future President Donald Trump.  In fact, Mr. Kirchick does not only suggest that a military coup should be considered, but he argues in his article that one would be absolutely necessary.

In his explanation why a military coup against a Trump presidency would be necessary, Mr. Kirchick cites the example of the recent failed coup in Turkey as a source of inspiration.

During the recent Independence Day Parade in Temecula, I marched holding up a "Hillary for Prison 2016" sign, and a couple liberal lefties approached me afterward accusing me of being "inappropriate," and one even suggested that my actions teetered on "sedition."  Yet, suggesting that a violent overthrow of President Trump isn't?

Patriotism is love of country, not love of government. . . or at least love of government when your regime is in place.

The Hitleric references regarding Mr. Trump are also made up with absolutely no evidence.  In fact, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama more closely resemble Hitler than Trump ever could.  Remember, Hitler's policies were government controlled health care, gun control, and more government control over local issues.

Kirchick argues that Trump is an authoritarian type of character.  The media has been doubling down by calling him a "nationalist" candidate in an attempt to tie him to "Nazism," which is National Socialism (nationalism).

The LA Times writer is figuring that being rough on terrorists using methods to save lives that the Democrats consider to be torture should be reasonably ignored by military personnel, and that it would lead to resistance by force.

I wonder if Mr. Kirchick believes a President Hillary Clinton could be trusted with the military. . . you know, considering her stellar history with classified national security information in emails.

Kirchick suggests that if the voters somehow find a way to vote Mr. Trump into the White House, that a violent military coup may be the only solution to save our country from catastrophe.  “Trump is not only patently unfit to be president, but a danger to America and the world. Voters must stop him before the military has to.”

Could you imagine if a conservative writer or host on Fox News, One America News, The Blaze, or NewsMax said that there should be a military coup to overthrow Obama, or Hillary Clinton if she were to somehow win the 2016 presidential election?  They'd be thrown into the gulag, or at least a Democrat Party version of the gulag.
