op ed review 11/4



THIS WEEK’S NEWS
Trump up by 4 in LA Times poll.

According to former Jimmy Carter pollster Pat Caddell, Hillary Clinton is hemorrhaging support as a result of the FBI announcement and we could see a repeat of the 1980 election when anti-establishment candidate Ronald Reagan won in a landslide.
Clinton´s leads in a number of critical battleground states have collapsed or evaporated entirely. The election could come down to one state with four electoral college votes that flips from Clinton to Trump.

FBI agents ´wanted to investigate the Clinton foundation but were barred by their bosses at the Justice Department

COLUMN OF THE WEEK
Tammy Bruce
There have been enough twists and turns during these last two weeks before the general election to give Space Mountain at Disneyland a run for its money. A roller coaster ride is fabulous, but one of the main reasons you can let go and enjoy it is because you know how it’s going to end.

Not so much with this election. One thing is for sure — no matter who wins on Nov. 8, the citizen upheaval borne of government betrayal will survive the season. The 2016 election is but a battle in the war for reformation of a government that has prioritized itself over the well-being of the country itself.

One does get the impression that politicians like House Speaker Paul D. Ryan and Senate Leader Mitch McConnell expect business as usual once the dust settles. They couldn’t be more wrong.

For eight years now, the Republican bureaucracy in Washington, D.C., not only (willfully?) underestimated President Obama and the sheer destructive and corrupt willfulness of the Democratic Party, they also looked away from rage in the cities, suburbs, along rural routes and in dying towns. We are drowning in the ambivalence and incompetence of a self-obsessed federal government.

The political class still mistakes the absence of tea party rallies as a sign of its death. The bureaucracy, however, still does not understand how the tea party wasn’t the seed of a rebellion looking for life, it was the result of a revolution that had already occurred in the homes and hearts of the abandoned middle class of this nation. It is a reformation that is still spurred on by the economy and being taxed enough already and now has simply added the mottos “Make American great again” and “Drain the swamp.”

The emergence of the tea party of 2009 was never a movement per se, it was a collection of the usually silent middle-class stakeholders in the American future who realized something very bad was afoot; it was less sentimental panic and much more the instinctive realization that the “hope and change” newly elected that Mr. Obama had sold us was looking suspiciously like the leftist economic tripe that had destroyed a multitude of nations in the 20th century.

And Republicans looked like they had no intention of interfering.

The concern of those quiet, middle-class Americans about the economy and a government too enamored with itself was viewed with hostility not just by Democrats but by Republicans as well. The Republican Party adopted tea party concerns rhetorically, promising for the 2010 and 2014 midterms that stopping the Obama agenda and defunding Obamacare would be their top priorities. We believed them and gave them the House in 2010 and the Senate in 2014. Then they facilitated the Obama agenda and kept Obamacare fully funded.

Instead of seeing the tea party movement as a warning, as an opportunity to adapt to the concerns of an increasingly worried American populace, the bureaucracy instead cast arguments against the Obama-Clinton domestic and international agenda as racist, sexist or ignorant.

For eight years now the American people first thought they were being betrayed, then were pretty sure they were, and then became convinced of it. The Republican-led Congress made a career of having hearing after hearing about Obamacare or Benghazi — lots of theater and no action. House Speaker John Boehner eventually resigned, and Mr. Ryan was elevated to the speakership only to continue to fully fund Mr. Obama’s Syrian migrant and immigration schemes. Obamacare, in the meantime, was allowed by Republicans to become a funded monster, virtually eliminating the ability for the average American to afford both health insurance and health care.

Just this week, one week before the election, Mr. Ryan spoke on “Fox & Friends” and once again insisted Obamacare would be dropped if Republicans win: “Obamacare is collapsing under its own weight. We can and will replace it if we win this election.” When asked by host Steve Doocy about how that “lines up with Donald Trump and his plan,” Mr. Ryan said, “They’re virtually one and the same. We’ve talked with Donald all year long on these things, same with tax reform … same with moving people from welfare to work, same with rebuilding national security, securing the border. …”

Republicans in Congress have been saying that for eight years and have never delivered. After so many years, it’s reasonable to believe that they’ve never had success because they prefer the status quo.
If Mr. Trump wins, establishment Republicans will fight him like they’ve never fought Mr. Obama. If Mrs. Clinton wins, then they will excuse their lack of opposition and fight because she’s the “first woman president.”

The people have been warning them for years that we’ve had enough, giving them opportunity after opportunity to adapt and fight for us, only to find ourselves the target of vitriol, ridicule and the Internal Revenue Service.

Make no mistake: Mr. Trump is no one-off flash in the pan— he’s the symbol and the action of an American citizenry that is being betrayed and used. No matter what happens on Tuesday, be ready because the fight is only beginning



‘What Trump represents isn’t crazy and it’s not going away.’ Billionaire tech investor Peter Thiel defends support for Donald Trump.  ”……a Washington outsider in the White House would recalibrate lawmakers who have lost touch with the struggles of most Americans. Thiel said it was “both insane and somehow inevitable” that political leaders would expect this presidential election to be a contest between “political dynasties” that have shepherded the country into two major financial crises: the tech bubble burst in the early 2000s, and the housing crisis and economic recession later that decade.”

FROM OTHER COLUMNS
“This is why you have security protocols — to protect classified information. [Hillary Clinton] exposed it to our enemies, and now … our adversaries have this very sensitive information that not only jeopardizes her and national security at home, but the men and women serving overseas. In my opinion, quite frankly, it’s treason.”
               -Rep. Michael McCaul, Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee

“There is no question that a qualified woman can and would very effectively do the job. And it is probably realistic to assume that one day we will have a woman president. But why can’t we wait for a woman to run who would honor rather than debase the position?”
                      -Walter Bussey

Hilarious, slightly risque, Mark Steyn:   “Occam’s Weiner”

Who´s Huma? The Mystery of Our Times

I was a federal agent for over a decade. During that time, I was the lead investigator in a number of federal criminal-investigations. In my experience, I have never seen or heard about a criminal case handled like the Hillary Clinton email investigation. Here are just a few of the puzzling anomalies that should leave you scratching your head:”

“Mrs. Clinton appears to have converted the office of secretary of state into a racketeering enterprise. This would be a violation of the RICO law — the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act of 1971 (codified in the U.S. penal code at sections 1961 et seq.). Hillary and her husband, former president Bill Clinton, operated the Clinton Foundation. Ostensibly a charity, the foundation was a de facto fraud scheme to monetize Hillary’s power as secretary of state (among other aspects of the Clintons’ political influence). The scheme involved (a) the exchange of political favors, access, and influence for millions of dollars in donations; (b) the circumvention of campaign-finance laws that prohibit political donations by foreign sources; (c) a vehicle for Mrs. Clinton to shield her State Department e-mail communications from public and congressional scrutiny while she and her husband exploited the fundraising potential of her position; and (d) a means for Clinton insiders to receive private-sector compensation and explore lucrative employment opportunities while drawing taxpayer-funded government salaries.
