Here we go again. The FBI is investigating the Clinton Foundation to determine if “donations” were used to influence then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by lining the Clintons’ pockets through “speaking fees,” among other crimes. This time, things are going to be different.
First, the brief background:
The FBI has launched a fresh investigation into the activities of the Clinton Foundation, particularly during the time when Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State. They want to know if she was influenced by contributions made to her charitable fund in a way that allowed donors to manipulate policy influenced by the State Department or other spheres of influence.
Little Rock’s FBI agents are leading the investigation. The Clinton Foundation was started in Little Rock in 1997.
Teflon-coated may be the best way to describe the Clintons who have allegedly participated in multiple major criminal activities for decades, yet nothing has ever stuck. That leads us to the first of three reasons the DOJ is going to convict someone at the Clinton Foundation based upon this investigation…
Something has to stick eventually
When you’ve been engaged in criminal activities for as long as the Clintons have allegedly been, you learn to sidestep most of the landmines. Most. As they demonstrated with the email server debacle, they aren’t flawless.
The other thing successful criminal activities breeds is complacency. When you keep getting away with things, you get comfortable. They’ve maintained their discipline through the decades, but the Clinton Foundation is not the Arkansas or U.S. government. There are paper trails with many people involved. Trying to keep it airtight is a futile effort. Their best hope was for either someone like James Comey to run cover for them indefinitely. Their second best hope was the spin machine the DNC and mainstream media offers. Comey is gone and the DOJ is now under a Republican President, which means they can now offer…
Fodder for the masses
Many, particularly Clinton-hating Republicans, have grown antsy over the years. They’ve been promised over and over again that the Clintons would eventually get what’s coming to them, but eventually is seeming like never as the Clintons are now in their 70s.
This is just the ticket to quench their appetite. It won’t make it all the way up to the top; Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea are safe. However, there will be more corruption exposed that will lead to an outcry for justice. While Clinton-haters won’t be given the big prize, they’ll get the consolation prize of seeing one or more people high up in the Clinton organization arrested, tried, and convicted. The small amount of time that person or those persons end up serving in jail is likely going to infuriate people, but at least there was a conviction, right?
They are almost certainly guilty
Let’s not bypass the obvious. Based upon what’s publicly known about the way the Clinton Foundation operated, one could make a very strong case. Add to that whatever they discover in the investigation and we’ll have someone to make that strong case against.
Even the Clintons cannot get away with the perception of favors being sold out of the State Department, particularly with Uranium One having such a strong footprint all over the Clinton Foundation’s books.
Will we see any of the Clintons in jail any time soon? Probably not. Will someone close to them get thrown to the wolves? For once, it’s finally likely. Justice may not get fully served, but at least we’ll get to taste the appetizers and maybe even a salad.
Forget lowering unemployment, Bernie Sanders will eliminate it!
During his 2016 Democrat primary campaign, Bernie Sanders was “absolutely sympathetic” to the idea of a universal basic income; however, he felt that his plans for a $15/hr. minimum wage, expanding Social Security to pay for guaranteed healthcare, and providing free college would do more than creating just another government handout.
But now Bernie has apparently found a way to accomplish his goals as well as the goals of the universal basic income crowd.
Yesterday, we learned that the self-proclaimed Democratic-Socialist is ready to announce a plan that will guarantee every American “who wants or needs one” a lifetime government job paying at least $15/hr. and proving paid family and medical leave plus retirement, health, and vacation benefits.
While the details are still being worked on, Bernie has admitted that he currently has no idea exactly how much his plan will cost or where the money to pay for it will come from. However, if his 2016 campaign is any indication, the cost will be irrelevant, and the money to pay for it will come from “the billionaires and oligarchs” he refers to as the “top one percent of income earners.”
While it would be tempting to shrug off Bernie’s plan as the rantings of a socialist loon living to the left of the left-wing, we should remember how his Marxist beliefs concerning income inequality caught fire with a generation of Constitutionally ignorant voters raised on the socialist ideology taught in today’s
public schools indoctrination centers.
And a poll conducted during the 2016 primary season showed that a majority of millennials rejected capitalism.
Democrats would see a huge voter advantage by creating a new state-run workforce dependent upon them for their jobs. And politicians from both parties would have a new voter-bloc to advance their ideological and political agendas.
Bernie’s plan is being called a guaranteed-jobs program, but the only guarantee it gives us is the destruction of capitalism and Constitutional America.

The Collective Irony of the Left.
While the nation’s Socialist Left deviously pretends to be ‘Liberal’ or ‘Democratic’ it actually functions undemocratically against Liberty.
For all of their pretence about being ‘Liberal’ or ‘for the people’, the Left is extremely oligarchical. Examine the Left’s Socialist national agenda, taking note many of its beliefs that are handed down from a select few that are to be accepted by the rank and file without question. Also, consider what happens to those who stray from Leftist orthodoxy.
Contrast this authoritarianism of the nation’s Left with the free-thinking albeit chaotic nature of the Pro-Liberty, Conservatarian-Right. While the Left will all parrot the same talking points for the outrage of the week. It’s extremely difficult to convince those on the Right to use the proper word in describing the opposition. [ Leftist in place of Liberal to be exact ]
Leftists ‘Independently’ marching to the exact same music.
Look at the protest marches sponsored by the usual suspects of the oligarchical Left, events from around the nation will feature the same talking points emblazoned on the signs, the same slogans, down to the very same headwear.
Then look at what happens to those who may stray from the Left’s authoritarian plantation. Hollywood is supposedly all-inclusive of every viewpoint, except those who espouse Conservatarian, Pro-Liberty ideals.
This is the larger point inspired by a column by Dennis Prager in The Daily Wire were he first makes the point recurring point that it’s leftism — not liberalism – that is the problem here. He goes on to talk about Whatever The Left Touches It Ruins. This is endemic to cases of a small cadre of Leftists deciding what is artistic or how the country’s history should be taught.
The only way to save Western civilization is to convince more people that leftism — not liberalism — is a nihilistic force. Quite literally, whatever the left touches it ruins.
So, here is a partial listing of the damage done by the left and the Democratic Party:
The most obvious — and, therefore, the one more and Americans can resonate with — is the near destruction of most American universities as places of learning.
When you attend an American university, you are taught to have contempt for America and its founders, to prefer socialism to capitalism, to divide human beings by race and ethnicity. You are taught to shut down those who differ with you, to not debate them. And you are taught to place feelings over reason — which is a guaranteed route to eventual evil.
So, too, one cannot watch late-night television if one desires to simply be entertained before drifting off to sleep. Jimmy Kimmel, Stephen Colbert and other hosts have changed late-night TV into left-night TV. Why merely be funny when you can use your monologues to advance your left-wing views?
If you treasure American and Western civilization, fighting the left — something all liberals and conservatives need to do — is the greatest good you can engage in at this time.
This is what happens when an ever-shrinking band of authoritarian Leftists decide that art should be scatological instead of uplifting. Or the example of small groups of ‘Comedians’ deciding that we have to be made to care about their ‘progressive’ agenda. Then there is the case of the corporate leadership of Citibank or Bank of America arbitrarily deciding the limitations of our basic human Liberty of self-preservation. [Note that Wells Fargo is bucking the trend standing up for Liberty] These are all examples of a Leftist ‘elite’ making decisions from their virtual mount Olympus for everyone else to follow.
The Take Away
While the Left likes to keep up the pretence of being ‘Democratic’ or ‘Liberal’ for that matter, they are neither. This is why we must do everything we can to expose the Left’s deceptions whenever possible.
Political warfare: Here’s why Trump should NOT fire Mueller, Rosenstein
Whether you like it or not, Americans are in the midst of a civil war, a war between incompatible, opposing ideologies; each side vying for political power to wield over the entire country.
Unfortunately, when it comes to political war, Constitution-loving Americans have one tragic commonality: tactical naiveté.
This should come as no surprise. After all, we are comprised of those who appreciate law and order, of those who play by the rules, revere fair and just referees, and prize good sportsmanship. To a fault, we aim to play fair, projecting our own values upon the millions of our fellow countrymen.
It’s time to get real…
A PARASITIC ARMY:
The highly-motivated and heavily-funded Regressives – those who have secured political power on the left and who now pull the Democratic Party’s strings – are exceedingly organized, are remarkably skilled in the art of anticipatory synchronization of mass action, are adept at behavioral manipulation tactics, and are equipped with a fleet of public relations power players.
Like leaches, the Regressives have strategically acquired positions of power within their host animal – the American bureaucratic, governmental machine – and act only in their own ideological and political interests, even if that means the death of their weakened, unsuspecting host.
The Regressives play to win, fight dirty, and are not bound by scruples or honor codes. Their singular goal is to win at all costs.
Every action by these subversive schemers is carefully choreographed and implemented in service of their unholy cause. Case in point: the Mueller team’s recent raids of President Trump’s personal lawyer’s office, home, and hotel room.
THE DEVIL’S FIDDLE:
Like many on our side of America’s political civil war, I am alarmed by Special Counsel Mueller’s ever-expanding, “Russia probe,” especially the FBI raid upon the President’s personal lawyer.
Understandably, I’ve observed the chorus of calls for President Trump to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller, as well as the DOJ’s Rosenstein. An ever-growing number of people on our side has begun to put pressure on the President to take actions toward these ends.
This is a mistake: the Regressives are playing us like a violin.
For months and months, our political opponents have been engaged in organized, subversive, provocative efforts in hopes of goading the President into firing Robert Mueller and/or Rosenstein. If President Trump were to in fact proceed in doing so, it would be a dream come true for the devious Democrats.
MoveOn.org has even been promoting a “Mueller Firing Pledge,” in cunningly strategic and proactive, yet sleazy anticipation.
Make no mistake. The raids on the President’s longtime, personal lawyer was a strategic move, judiciously designed to evoke a reactionary decision from the President.
Political war is war.
Deploying a Malevolent Militia:
Months ago, Democratic operatives established organizations, websites, and campaigns for precisely this occasion… should President Trump proceed in firing Robert Mueller. Thanks to their awe-worthy, disciplined efforts at recruitment, the Regressives have successfully enlisted an estimable 200,000 “troops.” All are on notice and battle-ready, prepared mass assembly within a matter of moments.
Their battle plan is simple and has been proven effective: utilize large numbers and pure showmanship to transform America’s streets into a stomping ground for the dissemination of propaganda.
Their slogan: “Nobody is above the law.”
Their battle: the “March for Truth.”
Back in December of 2017, after the President made an off the cuff remark about Robert Mueller, Newsweek published an article entitled, “If Trump Fires Mueller, More Than 170,000 Plan to Protest.” The Regressive enlistees were eagerly awaiting their call to arms, anxiously hoping that our President would fire Mueller: finally, this single act would validate their increasingly unhinged ideations of an America entrapped by a justice-obstructing, dictatorial villain.
The Newsweek article spoke of the well-organized, heroic plans and grandeur plans of the Regressives should Trump fire Robert Muller:
The plan to respond to a potential Mueller firing builds off previous protests since Trump took office, such as the Women’s March and the demonstrations at airports after the proposed travel ban. But the recent attacks on Mueller—including tweets by Trump as well as efforts by Republicans to investigate the FBI’s supposed anti-Trump bias—have added urgency to the “Nobody Is Above the Law” effort.
… dozens of protests are planned to address what organizers at groups including MoveOn, March For Truth and Indivisible call “a constitutional crisis for our country.”
Ever since the Cohen raids, the frivolous fleet of public relations orks has been eagerly spreading the word…
To. Be. Clear.
If Rosenstein is fired, https://t.co/AtXznAaBsH protests will be activated.
Over 800 cities. Over 300,000 people have signed up.
And we will do our job, and VOTE YOU OUT! pic.twitter.com/fjR5nCuNHc

🚨🚨 If Trump fires Rosenstein or Mueller 🚨🚨
Grab a to go bag, a friend, and head to your nearest protest location.
HIT THE STREETS!!!

Thus, at this very moment, hordes of anti-Social inJustice Warriors, tweaking for their next crisis-induced dopamine fix, impatiently yearn for the psychological high that ideological validation brings.
Awaken! This is war.
Our opponents don’t play nice, and they don’t play by our rules. There is no fair play. Every move is plotted with delicate, sinister, unscrupulous care. We live in a dog eat dog world. The winner takes all.
The monsters lie in wait for their feast… just as a perched spider patiently anticipates an unsuspecting fly to become entrapped in her sticky, silk web.
President Trump must resist the Regressives’ carefully laid trap.
We must not feed the beasts.
