Now that a Republican will soon be in the White House, liberals can go back to PRETENDING that they are against war
Although the U.S. still has 5,000 troops in Iraq during the last year of Obama’s presidency, the protestors who demanded that we “bring the troops home” when Bush was president haven’t made the same demand on Obama.
On the contrary, the Democrats tried to elect a candidate who wants to start World War III.
Here’s a nice satire of these “anti-war” hypocrites.
Thank goodness for the electoral college, which prevented Hillary Clinton from starting World War III
Hillary Clinton admitted in 2013 that a no-fly zone would “kill a lot of Syrians” — but still wants one
A no-fly zone in Syria could lead to a U.S. war with Russia — but Hillary Clinton keeps on calling for one
October 21, 2016
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton continues to call for a no-fly zone in Syria, insisting it would save lives. Yet, just three years ago, she acknowledged in a private paid speech to Goldman Sachs that a no-fly zone would “kill a lot of Syrians” and lead to “American and NATO involvement where you take a lot of civilians.”
In numerous presidential debates, Clinton has proposed creating a no-fly zone or so-called safe zones in Syria, areas in which planes piloted by the Syrian government or by its Russian allies could not operate. If planes were to fly in these zones, they would be shot down.
Clinton repeated her call for a no-fly zone in the final presidential debate on Wednesday night. “I’m going to continue to push for a no-fly zone and safe havens within Syria,” she said, adding that it would be “not only to help protect the Syrians and prevent the constant outflow of refugees, but to, frankly, gain some leverage on both the Syrian government and the Russians.”
What Clinton did not acknowledge is that a no-fly zone would likely lead to war with Russia — the world’s largest nuclear power.
Chris Wallace, the moderator for the debate, alluded to this in a follow-up question. He noted that, while Clinton has called for no-fly zones in multiple debates, Gen. Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, has warned that imposing a no-fly zone could potentially kick off a war with Russia.
Moreover, “President Obama has refused to do that because he fears it’s going to draw us closer or deeper into the conflict,” Wallace added. “How do you respond to their concerns?” he asked. “If you impose a no-fly zone and a Russian plane violates that, does President Clinton shoot that plane down?”
Clinton conceded that she is “well aware of the really legitimate concerns that you have expressed from both the president and the general,” yet avoided directly answering the question, doubling down on her policy. Instead of identifying a no-fly zone as a military strategy, she spoke of it as a diplomatic one, claiming, “I think a no-fly zone could save lives and could hasten the end of the conflict.”
This argument, however, is undermined by what Clinton herself privately acknowledged just three years ago. An excerpt of a June 2013 paid speech Clinton delivered to Goldman Sachs, recently released by the WikiLeaks, shows that Clinton is well aware of how dangerous a no-fly zone could be.
“To have a no-fly zone you have to take out all of the air defense, many of which are located in populated areas,” the former secretary of state explained in the 2013 speech. “So our missiles, even if they are standoff missiles so we’re not putting our pilots at risk — you’re going to kill a lot of Syrians.”
“So all of a sudden this intervention that people talk about so glibly becomes an American and NATO involvement where you take a lot of civilians,” she added.
Clinton also noted that Syria had “the fourth-biggest army in the world,” along with “very sophisticated air defense systems” that had gotten even more sophisticated because of Russian imports.
The quotes from this speech were included in a list of excerpts of Clinton’s paid speeches to Wall Street, which was attached to a January 2016 email to John Podesta, a close Clinton ally who now serves as the chair for Clinton’s presidential campaign. WikiLeaks has published thousands of emails to and from Podesta.
In the same 2013 Goldman Sachs speech included in this document, Clinton pointed out that a no-fly zone in Syria would be different from the no-fly zone that was imposed in Libya in 2011, which ultimately led to the violent overthrow of the government.
“The air defenses were not that sophisticated” in Libya, she said. Clinton also noted that there would be many more civilian casualties in Syria than there had been in Libya.
“And then you add on to it [that] a lot of the air defenses are not only in civilian population centers but near some of their chemical stockpiles,” Clinton added, referencing Syria. “You do not want a missile hitting a chemical stockpile.”
The no-fly zone imposed in Libya paved the way for the toppling, and brutal killing, of former leader Muammar Qadhafi. The U.N. Security Council first established the zone ostensibly to protect civilians, yet it quickly led to a NATO bombing campaign.
In fact, every time a no-fly zone has been imposed, it has led to regime change.
Micah Zenko, a fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, used NATO’s own materials to show that, despite the humanitarian rhetoric behind the call for a no-fly zone in Libya, Western governments planned to pursue regime change in the oil-rich North African country from the very beginning.
A September 2016 report by the U.K. House of Commons’ Foreign Affairs Committee also detailed how the war in Libya was based on an array of lies.
Final newspaper endorsement count: Clinton 57, Trump 2
November 6, 2016
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has received fewer endorsements from the editorial boards of the nation’s largest newspapers than any major-party presidential candidate in history.
Among the top 100 largest newspapers in America, just two — the Las Vegas Review-Journal and the Florida Times-Union in Jacksonville — endorsed Trump. The Review-Journal is owned by Sheldon Adelson, the casino magnate who has spent millions trying to elect Trump.
“Donald Trump, despite all of his faults, is best suited to blow up the inbred corruption of the Washington-New York elites,” the Times-Union wrote in a Sunday editorial.
Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has received endorsements from 57 newspaper editorial boards across the country, including papers such as the Dallas Morning News, the Arizona Republic and the San Diego Union-Tribune, conservative bastions that have almost always backed Republicans.
Four newspapers have taken the unusual step of explicitly advising readers to vote against Trump, even if they cannot bring themselves to recommend Clinton.
Trump’s “reckless ignorance is more informed by disturbing Internet conspiracy theories than evidence, wisdom or reason,” the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel wrote this weekend. Clinton “suffers from an inflated sense of entitlement and a well-earned lack of trust.”
But, the paper concluded: “Job One: Reject Trump.”
USA Today, the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram and Salt Lake City’s Deseret News all advised votes against the Republican presidential nominee.
The rejection of Trump is even more lopsided than the 1972 presidential contest, when the vast majority of papers backed Richard Nixon’s reelection bid. Only 7 percent of papers that endorsed that year picked George McGovern, the Democratic nominee. This year, only 3 percent of papers are backing Trump.
Even Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson has had more success with editorial boards than Trump. This weekend, the Charleston Post & Courier became the fourth paper to back Johnson.
“No, Mr. Johnson won’t win the White House Tuesday. But if he gains a substantial vote total, that could help spark the liberation of our politics from the two-party monopoly now failing Americans,” the paper wrote.
Update: The “Defcon Warning System” mentioned in this article is NOT the official DEFCON system that we are all familiar with. Instead, it is a completely DIFFERENT organization which deliberately tries to trick people. And I fell for it. My error. I apologize.
Defcon nuclear threat REDUCED to safest level following Donald Trump victory
America’s Defcon warning level has been reduced to its safest threat level possible following Donald Trump’s shock presidential election win
November 15, 2016
The Defcon Warning System, a private organisation which monitors world events and estimates the nuclear threat against America, is now at Level 5 – its lowest possible state.
Just weeks ago the warning was accelerated to Level 3 following increased tensions between US and Russia, with insiders fearing the West was creeping closer to nuclear war.
Level 3 means US troops could be mobilised in as little as 15 minutes.
But the group, made up of experts claiming to have contacts within the US security industry, have seen Donald Trump’s election win as a pacifier for Russian relations.
The group wrote on its website: “The United States took a tentative step toward a more isolationist policy with its recent presidential election.
“While it will take several months to see how the US reforms its foreign policy, already some world leaders have expressed hope that relations could improve, including Russia and Syria.
“If the new US President keeps to his previous statements, look for the United States to withdraw somewhat from military confrontations in the Middle East and possibly European theatre, though it is highly unlikely it will abandon NATO commitments, and the Ukraine will likely pop up again in the near future.
“Russia, however, will probably wait to see what the new President does, as well as now being hampered by the coming winter.”
Donald Trump’s election as president of America was welcomed by Vladimir Putin, leader of the US’ biggest rival Russia.
He said he hoped the pair would be able to work well together towards a more friendly relationship between the two superstates.
The group did warn, however, about some remaining threats to US and world security.
It said: “China and North Korea … continue to either cast a wary eye or are outright belligerent. Israel … will become more of a focal point again.
“Meanwhile, more troops are to be sent to Europe in 2017 to bolster defences against Russian movements and NATO continues building up forces in Poland and surrounding areas to protect against a potential Russian assault.”
While the US government also uses the Defcon system, it is private and not available to the public, so public records are estimates.
Level 5 means the US Department of Defence should be at its lowest state of readiness for nuclear war.
Hillary supporter Jonathan Pie gives a brilliant explanation for why she lost the election (six minute video)
Video shows Hillary supporters praising her actions in Benghazi, her plan to repeal the Bill of Rights, and her plan to adopt Sharia law in the U.S., as well as criticizing people who hunt endangered Triceratops
Hillary sending John Podesta to speak for her at 2 a.m. on election night reinforces my belief that she has Parkinson’s
At 2 a.m. on election night, Hillary stayed home, and sent John Podesta to speak in her place.
Has any other major party presidential candidate in modern times ever done something like this?
The medication that Hillary takes to prevent her Parkinson’s tremors only lasts for a short period of time, which is why her campaign appearances were so limited.
What other reason could there possibly be for her absence?
This video explains why her recent public appearances have always been so limited:
This guy is a Bernie Sanders supporter who voted for Jill Stein. In this awesome video, he explains why Hillary is worse than Trump:
This article from Reuters shows that Wall St. loves Hillary, not Trump. It says:
Employees of the 17 largest bank holding companies and their subsidiaries have been sending her $10 for every $1 they contributed to Trump, according to a Reuters analysis.
In addition, Goldman Sachs paid Hillary a combined total of $675,000 for three speeches.
Also, While Senator, Hillary voted for the $700 billion TARP Wall St. corporate welfare bank bailout bill.
And finally, as last night’s election results came in, Salon published this article, which is called “Global markets plunge as prospect of Trump winning the presidency becomes more plausible.”
I really don’t see how anyone who voted for Hillary can honestly say they support the Occupy Wall St. movement.
Before the election, Newsweek sent bookstores advance printed copies of its magazine declaring Hillary the winner, but no such advance printed copies declaring Trump the winner
With major sporting events, like the World Series or the Super Bowl, companies that manufacture t-shirts will manufacture separate shirts delcaring both teams as the winner before the event takes place. As soon as the winner is declared, they immediately start selling the shirts with the winner, and put the shirts with the loser into the trash.
Before yesterday’s election, Newsweek printed up advance paper copies declaring the winner and sent them to bookstores. But they only printed and sent to bookstores advance paper copies declaring Hillary the winner. They did not print and send to bookstores any advance paper copies declaring Trump the winner.
Here is a photograph of an advance paper copy declaring Hillary the winner, which was photographed by a bookstore employee before the election. I got this photograph from this source:
Newsweek tried to defend itself by showing this other image, which it claims proves that it had advance covers for both Trump and Hillary. However, these covers are just computer images, not printed paper copies. I got these computer images from this source:
Newsweek even admitted that it only printed and sent to bookstores advance paper copies declaring Hillary as the winner, and not Trump, before the election.
1) In January 2001, Clinton stole $28,500 of furniture from the White House.
2) In 1980, Clinton cheated on her taxes by not reporting $6,498 in income from commodities trading.
3) In 2010, 2011, and 2012, Clinton lied to the IRS by falsely saying that her foundation did not get any money from foreign governments.
4) It is illegal for cabinet members to accept gifts from foreign governments. However, when Clinton was Secretary of State, she accepted first class flights that were paid for by foreign governments.
5) Clinton illegally stored classified spy satellite data on North Korean nukes on her private email server.
6) In August 2015, Clinton signed a sworn statement, under penalty of perjury, saying that she had turned over all of her work related emails. The statement was later revealed to be false.
7) In October 2015, Clinton admitted that she had broken U.S. law in Benghazi.
8) Clinton illegally gave classified material to people who not been cleared to have it in their possession.
9) Clinton illegally ignored 237 of the 240 Freedom of Information Act requests that she had received when she was Secretary of State.
10) Clinton illegally withheld Benghazi related emails from the State Department.
11) Clinton illegally continued to keep and email classified information after she quit her job as Secretary of State.
12) After Clinton received a subpoena ordering her to turn over her work related emails, she illegally ignored the subpoena and used BleachBit software to delete those emails.
Title of Reuters article says Hillary is an “enemy” of Wall St, but the actual article says “Employees of the 17 largest bank holding companies and their subsidiaries have been sending her $10 for every $1 they contributed to Trump”
This article from Reuters is called
“Hillary Clinton: Wall Street’s favorite enemy”
However, the actual text of the article says
“Employees of the 17 largest bank holding companies and their subsidiaries have been sending her $10 for every $1 they contributed to Trump, according to a Reuters analysis.”
Here’s a video that shows Hillary Clinton agreeing with Donald Trump’s position on illegal immigration
Update: the original video that I had posted has been removed. Here’s a different one with some (but not all) of the same footage:
CNN cuts ties with Donna Brazile after hacked emails suggest she gave Clinton campaign debate questions
October 31, 2016
CNN quietly cut ties with Donna Brazile, acting Democratic National Committee chair and a longtime contributor on the cable news network, after hacked emails published by WikiLeaks revealed that she had provided the Hillary Clinton campaign with questions in advance of Democratic primary debates hosted by CNN.
According to a spokeswoman for the network, CNN accepted Brazile’s resignation on Oct. 14.
The emails showed that Brazile — whose role as a CNN contributor was suspended in July after she took over for departing DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz — shared with the Clinton campaign a question that would be posed to Clinton before the CNN Democratic Debate in Flint, Mich., in March, and another before a CNN town hall Columbus, Ohio, a week later.
The network vehemently denied giving Brazile access to debate questions in advance.
“CNN never gave Brazile access to any questions, prep material, attendee list, background information or meetings in advance of a town hall or debate,” the spokeswoman, Lauren Pratapas, said in a statement. “We are completely uncomfortable with what we have learned about her interactions with the Clinton campaign while she was a CNN contributor.”
Brazile has appeared as a guest on Yahoo News’ live coverage of campaign events, including the recent presidential debates, but was not paid for any of those appearances.
Brazile did not respond to a request for comment.
On Twitter, she referred media to her previous statement the emails exposed by WikiLeaks (“This is exactly what the Russians intended to do,” Brazile said on Oct. 11, “and they’re doing it”), thanked CNN and wished her former colleagues well.
When it comes to taking time off from campaigning, CNN reporter Dana Bash holds a very different standard for Trump than she does for Clinton
Here’s another great example of media bias at its finest:
Trump Shuts Down CNN Crank for Questioning Him on “Taking Time Off” to Attend Hotel Opening
Donald Trump SHUTS DOWN liberal CNN host Dana Bash after ridiculous biased question.
October 26, 2016
Dana Bash: For people who say you’re taking time out of swing states to go do this, you say?
Donald Trump: I say the following. You have been covering me for the last, long time. I did yesterday 8 stops and 3 major speeches. And I’ve been doing this for weeks straight. I left for here for an hour-and-a-half. I’m leaving here and going to North Carolina, then I’m going to Florida, then I’m going up to New Hampshire. For you to ask me that question is actually very insulting because Hillary Clinton does one stop and then goes home and sleeps. And yet you ask me that question. I think it’s a very rude question.

Hillary Has Abnormal Eye Movements, Say Majority of Doctors Surveyed, Reports AAPS
October 25, 2016
TUCSON, Ariz. — Concerns about Hillary Clinton’s health have been subdued after her three debate performances. She presented her ability to survive 4-and-a-half hours on a stage with Donald Trump as proof of sufficient stamina to serve as commander-in-chief.
“She evidently intended this as a joke, although I suspect our combat veterans would not be amused,” states AAPS executive director Jane Orient, M.D.
Videos are, however, circulating on the internet, from her rather brief and rare appearances in public, which are purported to show pathological eye movements.
“These are quick, episodic, and inconsistent,” states Dr. Orient, who is an internist. “So we decided to ask doctors on our email list to have a look at one of the videos.
Nearly two-thirds of respondents said they saw abnormal movements. Only 15% did not, and 21% were unsure. There are long segments in which the eye movements appear normal.
About 60% of those who saw abnormal movements thought “the cause could be a potentially disabling neurological condition,” and none of them were willing to say that it isn’t.
Such movements signify an abnormality in portions of the brain that coordinate the eye muscles. There is a long differential diagnosis. Possibilities the respondents suggested include increased intracranial pressure (she is at risk for that because of her history of head trauma and a transverse sinus clot); a drug effect; or a chronic degenerative neurological condition. Parkinson’s disease is mentioned—with drug treatment concealing most manifestations but causing the eye signs.
Doctors were asked which tests would be helpful, and 37 responded. The most common one was a full neurological examination by unbiased specialists, including a neuro-ophthalmologist.
“A neuro-ophthalmologist could do a structured examination, but it might be normal at a moment in time. The video clips need to be explained,” stated Dr. Orient. “A cardiologist might do an electrocardiogram that is perfectly normal—but he will also look at a 24-hour monitor that may show a transient life-threatening rhythm disturbance.”
A collection of additional clips in slow motion has been posted.
“As Hillary revealed to the public, perhaps illegally, the President may have only four minutes to respond to a nuclear threat,” said Dr. Orient. “The public needs to know whether she is concealing a serious, progressive illness that may impair memory, reasoning, alertness, or ability to think quickly at a critical time.”
The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) is a national organization representing physicians in virtually all specialties and every state. Founded in 1943, AAPS has the motto “omnia pro aegroto,” which means “all for the patient.”
