op ed review 9/11



THIS WEEK’S NEWS
Hillary unhinged:  Hillary Clinton said Friday that 50 percent of Donald Trump supporters are nothing more than a “basket of deplorables……irredeemable…..Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, you name it…..not America..”
Hillary claims ISIS is praying for a Trump victory. 

Bill Clinton says Donald Trump’s “Make America great again” slogan is racist: “  “If you’re a white southerner, you know exactly what it means,” He indicated that Trump’s campaign slogan signaled that he would make white people more culturally [dominant] over other races in the country.
But Clinton must have forgotten that he used the same phrase in the past. He used it repeatedly while running for president in 1991 and 1992, declaring at one Little Rock, Ark., event, "Together, we can make America great again."

“What is it about traveling abroad that seems to encourage President Obama to unload all manner of grievances on the United States? For whatever reason, traveling abroad appears to help crystallize everything wrong he sees in America. During his recent trip to Cuba and  Argentina, for example, we counted 18 separate times he talked down his employer, the United States of America.  Here’s the list.

Conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly passed away one day before her the release of her last book, “The Conservative Case for Trump.” Schlafly, who was 92 years old when she died on Monday afternoon, founded the Eagle Forum in 1972.
Schlafly:  “Voters finally have the opportunity to choose a president who will make America first by securing our border and ending one-sided trade deals that favor foreign workers rather than our own. Trump’s strong stance in his meeting with the Mexican president demonstrates that Donald Trump is the “choice, not an echo.””

Hillary apparently gets stealth coaching using a wireless earpiece?
Flashback:  Eight years ago the media was outraged that former President George W. Bush allegedly wore a listening device during a 2004 debate with John Kerry.

88 retired U.S. generals and admirals, including four 4-star and fourteen 3-star flag officers, signed an open letter endorsing Donald Trump for president.
Donald Trump leads Hillary Clinton by 19 points among voters who are currently serving or have previously served in the U.S. military, according to the latest NBC News

Trump rips media for mocking Christians

Pew Research Center:  57 million Hispanics now in U.S., 17% of population, 54% of total population growth. “….a huge change that is sure to shift electoral politics and government programs.”
Donald Trump notes that if he doesn't win in November, Republicans will never win another election because Hillary Clinton will make sure illegal immigrants get citizenship.
Months after the Obama administration spent $19 million to register new immigrant voters that will likely support Democrats in November, it’s dedicating an additional $10 million in a final push as the presidential election approaches.

An illegal alien and convicted child rapist was able to shoot two California corrections officers on Saturday because Hillary Clinton’s State Department refused to enforce the law and take actions that would have forced his home country to repatriate him.

The numbers are in and after seven years of Obamanomics the economic climate in America is “worse than the depression.”  One in six working age males has no job.

COLUMN OF THE WEEK
Deroy Murdock  9/10   National Review

Democrats will stop at nothing to slime the Republican nominee. Donald J. Trump’s campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again,” is racist. What seemed like an inclusive, inspiring call to national renewal really is a cry for Caucasian power. How do we know this? Bill Clinton said so.

“If you’re a white Southerner, you know exactly what it means, don’t you?” Clinton told voters in Orlando, Fla., on Wednesday. “What it means is, ‘I’ll give you the economy you had 50 years ago, and I’ll move you back up on the social totem pole, and other people down.”

But wait. On Friday morning, Fox & Friends excavated several examples of when this divisive, cruel, ugly motto was deployed to whip up white hate by none other than . . . William Jefferson Clinton. “I believe that, together, we can make America great again,” Bill Clinton said in Little Rock, Ark., in 1991. Standing before a flapping American flag, with his appropriately white shirt sleeves rolled up, Bill Clinton addressed voters in 1992. He promised “to secure a better future for your children and your grandchildren and to make America great again.” Clinton also looked straight into a camera that year and said, “I want to attack these problems and make America great again.” “It’s time for another comeback,” Bill Clinton said in a radio ad for his wife’s 2008 U.S. Senate campaign. “Time to make America great again.”

Now that my Fox News Channel colleagues have hog-tied Bill Clinton with archived video and audio tape, perhaps he will dump his utterly absurd and disgusting charge that there is anything even microscopically racist, biased, or even snooty about the words “Make America Great Again.” This phrase is perfectly innocuous, and Trump is just the latest of many candidates to use it. While Clinton, his wife, and their Democratic surrogates may drop this one foolish argument, they most assuredly will not stop trying to split the country with grotesque ethnic appeals and ludicrous “updates” on how Trump and the GOP are itching to advance white supremacy, if not reinstate segregation. The Democrats play the race card, again and again, since it’s the last one left in their deck.

The Democrats cannot run on the Obama-Clinton economy, which is growing at an annual rate of 0.95 percent. The Democratic recovery is the weakest in 67 years. That is, since 1949.

The Democrats cannot run on Obamacare, which Hillary Clinton calls “one of the greatest accomplishments of President Obama, of the Democratic party, and of our country.” Premiums have soared 26.4 percent, on average, in the 14 states that have approved next year’s prices. Among 23 state-level Obamacare co-ops, 16 have collapsed, from Oregon to South Carolina. Health insurers are stampeding out of Obama’s vaunted exchanges, leaving Obamacare consumers with a choice of exactly one carrier in 31 percent of U.S. counties. Miles from its stated destination, the Obamacare jalopy is careening into a ravine.

The Democrats cannot run on peace and stability while the Middle East is in flames. Early Friday morning, North Korea tested its brawniest atomic bomb yet, unleashing a 5.3-magnitude earthquake in the process. Iran’s ayatollahs count the $1.7 billion in Swiss francs and other currencies in cold, hard cash that Obama laundered and then delivered to them by jet. Tehran returned the favor by deploying naval vessels to menace U.S. warships in the Persian Gulf. American prestige is so in tatters, thanks to the Obama-Clinton “Lead from Behind” doctrine, that the president of the Philippines this week publicly called the president of the United States “a son of a wh***.”….

The Democrats cannot run on competence as veterans literally drop dead waiting for medical treatment in the heartless VA system. Also, federal bureaucrats literally have been caught watching pornography on their computers. They kept their jobs, as did Drug Enforcement Agency staffers who cavorted with prostitutes in Colombia — paid for by the drug cartels. Such abuses and unaccountability reflect the same contempt for the taxpayers that Obama has shown since he took office. As Hillary Clinton cheered, Obama turbocharged the national debt from $10.6 trillion to $19.5 trillion — up 84 percent.

And the Democrats cannot run on honesty and transparency as Hillary Clinton now faces investigations for perjury and obstruction of justice, thanks to her abuse of state secrets through her outlaw, unsecure, private e-mail server. The Democrats’ bandwagon now runs on just one cylinder. So, rather than bring Americans together, expect the party that launched the Ku Klux Klan to scream “Racism!” non-stop between now and Election Day.

FROM OTHER COLUMNS
 “Many, perhaps most people who vote Republican don’t do so because of tax rates or trade agreements or Kelo or Ex-Im or even abortion or guns. Rather, it is nationalism — understood as the political expression of the emotion of patriotism — that’s the substructure of support for the Right, the policy specifics about taxes and the rest being the superstructure. Voters who don’t particularly care about the three-legged stool of conservatism voted Republican anyway because they were one-nation patriots and the Democrats had become the party of post-Americanism and balkanization. This is the real source of the revulsion at Obama — it’s not his father’s race and it’s not really even Obamacare and the other outrages of this administration, outrageous as they are. It’s his post-Americanism, which combines his citizen-of-the-world pretensions with an aggressive campaign of deconstructing the American people.”
                  -Mark Krikorian

“For months Americans wondered whether the FBI, led by Director James Comey, would take down the most corrupt woman in the history of American politics, Hillary Clinton. As it turns out, Hillary Clinton took down the FBI.”

GLOBALONEY
John Hindraker “Is the debate over catastrophic anthropogenic global warming over? In one sense, it is. One thing we know for sure is that the models that are the sole support for alarmism are wrong. The substantial heating they projected has failed to materialize. Having been falsified by observation, we know that they are no good. The alarmists will have to come up with something better than these discredited models if they want to convince the rest of us. Meanwhile, any comprehensive understanding of the Earth’s climate is very far off.”

ARTICLES
Phyllis Schlafly’s last column

Dick and Liz Cheney, WSJ, “Dangers Rise as America Retreats:  Fifteen years after 9/11, the next president will face greater risks and a weaker military to combat them.”

Jed Babbin:  “It’s a matter or record. Americans now populate the largest, wealthiest and most powerful banana republic in the world. The differences between Obama’s America and Maduro’s Venezuela are defined only by degree.”

It’s clear now the FBI conducted a sweetheart investigation into Hillary Clinton’s e-mail shenanigans that appears to have been fixed from the start to go nowhere. Far from exonerating Clinton, the nearly 60 pages of documents expose both the systematic destruction of subpoenaed evidence by Clinton’s aides and the curious lack of interest by investigators in recovering it. Agents also failed to resolve unanswered questions, reconcile contradictory testimony or sweat uncooperative witnesses.
