Clinton’s house of cards continues to tumble

Hillary Clinton greets supporters following her town hall meeting with families on Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2016 in Haverford, Pa. (Tom Gralish/Philadelphia Inquirer/TNS)With new email revelations and a renewed FBI investigation into her actions, Hillary Clinton’s campaign is unraveling in the final stretch.

Emails released by WikiLeaks Monday revealed that CNN contributor Donna Brazile leaked debate questions to Clinton, lending credence to criticisms about the Clinton machine’s relationship to the press and forcing the network to distance itself from its former employee.

The email revealed that Brazile contacted Clinton campaign leaders ahead of the debate in Flint, Mich., in early March with some pretty specific information.

“One of the questions directed to HRC tomorrow is from a woman with a rash,” Brazile wrote.  “Her family has lead poison and she will ask what, if anything, will Hillary do as president to help the ppl of Flint.”

In another email to the Clinton team, Brazile said: “From time to time I get the questions in advance.”

After the information went public Brazile, who is now interim head of the Democratic National Committee, denied having helped the Clinton campaign.

“As a longtime political activist with deep ties to our party, I supported all of our candidates for president. I often shared my thoughts with each and every campaign, and any suggestions that indicate otherwise are simply untrue. As it pertains to the CNN Debates, I never had access to questions and would never have shared them with the candidates if I did,” she said in a statement.

CNN, meanwhile, claims it is “completely uncomfortable” with the situation.

“On October 14th, CNN accepted Donna Brazile’s resignation as a CNN contributor,” the network said in a statement.

“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 statement continued.  “We are completely uncomfortable with what we have learned about her interactions with the Clinton campaign while she was a CNN contributor.”

With WikiLeaks continuing to leak heavily-damaging information about Clinton and her allies, some Americans are suggesting that the Democratic Party should ask her to step aside.

That’s a view shared by longtime Chicago columnist John Kass, who contends Clinton’s growing list of scandals will render her unable to lead the nation if elected.

He wrote in a Saturday column:

What if she is elected? Think of a nation suffering a bad economy and continuing chaos in the Middle East, and now also facing a criminal investigation of a president. Add to that congressional investigations and a public vision of Clinton as a Nixonian figure wandering the halls, wringing her hands.

The best thing would be for Democrats to ask her to step down now. It would be the most responsible thing to do, if the nation were more important to them than power. And the American news media — fairly or not firmly identified in the public mind as Mrs. Clinton’s political action committee — should begin demanding it.

And an increasing number of Americans appear to agree.

Polls out Monday reveal that nearly half of Americans believe Clinton’s email scandal is worse than the Watergate affair that crippled the Nixon administration.

In recent years, Americans have witnessed an uptick in random acts of violence carried out by urban youths spurred by racial hatred and the prospect of internet infamy. The most recent occurrences illustrate that anyone could become the victim of wanton and potentially fatal attacks in public places.

According to a recent report out from NBC Philadelphia, innocent people were attacked by roving gangs of miscreants on north Philadelphia campus of Temple University Friday.

The mobs, ranging in size from 20 to 100 violent and unruly criminals, wreaked havoc on the campus for more than two hours, punching and kicking multiple students and even assaulting a uniformed police officer before dissipating.

The mob attacks were reportedly orchestrated via social media.

While the news out of Philadelphia may be shocking to those who believe America to be a largely civilized society, this sort of unprovoked violence is becoming commonplace on the streets of American cities.

Back in 2013, a new trend called the “knock out game” emerged wherein urban youths attacked unwitting pedestrians with sucker punches to the head and posted videos of the senseless assaults online.

As I reported at the time:

In New York, authorities report that there is a growing trend of young blacks attacking white, usually Jewish, victims at random in the streets. So, sadly, that random, racially motivated acts of violence are being carried out by youths on the streets of American cities is not fiction. And that the perpetrators of such acts consider the assault and potential murder of a random, unsuspecting victim to be part of a game, called the “Knockout Game,” is a reality carried out, so far, with little media fanfare.

The game is nothing new and is not isolated to New York, but was once relegated to black gang culture in the Nation’s harsher urban environments, according to law enforcement. Besides Jews, Asians and other non-blacks in general have been the targets of attack.

Authorities in St. Louis report that these attacks have been rampant in recent years. And similar attacks have occurred in Missouri, Wisconsin and a handful of other States. In Illinois, notably, the game is referred to interchangeably as the “Knockout Game” or “polar-bear hunting” by its enthusiasts.

Attempts by politicians to irritate the nation’s racial divide have only made the problem worse, with anti-police riots in urban areas throughout the country in recent months sometimes turning into whitey hunting excursions.

As was the case in Milwaukee this summer.

And then there’s this recent footage out of Charlotte, North Carolina where a  white man was beaten by an angry black mob:

I could link to hundreds of other examples.

Racial problems and those of senseless acts of violence aren’t going to end anytime soon in the United States thanks to divisiveness peddled by Washington politicians, a worsening economy and an overall sense of despair in many parts of the country.

And as the nation’s growing class of victims becomes increasingly violent and unreasonable, your chances of an unfortunate encounter will continue to increase.

Stay vigilant, arm yourself and learn proper self-defense techniques.

88 US Generals Stand Together Against Hillary Clinton

88 US Generals Stand Together Against Hillary Clinton In One Massive Act Of Defiance

 

By now, it should come as no surprise that the liberal and mainstream media try to represent Donald Trump as an inherently evil person and portray Hillary as the prototypical leader. But, a lot of influential figures have recognized Trump’s presidential capacities and are starting to massively support him.

VIA USA Newsflash 

According to recent reports, 88 retired U.S. Generals and Admirals wrote an open letter, claiming they support Trump and his “commitment to rebuild our military, to secure our borders, to defeat our Islamic supremacist adversaries and restore law and order domestically.”

“As retired senior leaders of America’s military, we believe that such a change can only be made by someone who has not been deeply involved with, and substantially responsible for, the hollowing out of our military and the burgeoning threats facing our country around the world,” the letter reads.

“For this reason, we support Donald Trump’s candidacy to be our next Commander-in-Chief.”

Trump was quick to respond to the glowing endorsement. From the beginning, he has thrown his support behind our men and women in uniform.

“It is a great honor to have such amazing support from so many distinguished retired military leaders,” Trump commented. “I thank each of them for their service and their confidence in me to serve as commander-in-chief.”

We can only Make America Great Again if we ensure our military remains the finest fighting force in the world, and that’s exactly what I will do as president,” Trump concluded.

The letter was reportedly organized by Major General Sidney Shachnow, the only survivor of the Holocaust that went on to become a U.S. General. He partnered with Rear Admiral Charles Williams, who received the Legion of Merit.

In his statement, Williams suggested the letter demonstrates that military leaders belive “Donald Trump is more trusted to be commander-in-chief than Hillary Clinton.”

“Hillary Clinton has made clear she is running as a staunch defender of the status quo when it comes to the issues facing our military, and she has shown through her foreign policy decisions and her mishandling of classified information that she lacks the judgment to do the job,” Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn added in the press release.

“Mr.Trump’s deep and growing support in the military community and his thoughtful proposals show he’s the right person to lead our men and women in uniform.”

This sort of endorsement will surely give the Republican candidate a huge boost for the upcoming election and the two remaining debates.

Be sure to let us know what you think of these generals’ actions in the comment section below. Do you agree with them?

EXECUTIVE ORDER EQUIPS ILLINOISANS TO TAKE ON RED TAPE

Illinois Policy 10/27/2016

Gov. Bruce Rauner has ordered executive agencies to review all their regulations for necessity, clarity and statutory authority and to mark for repeal or revision rules that don’t meet those criteria.

Small businesses and would-be entrepreneurs have a tough time getting started in Illinois, largely due to the state’s heavy regulatory burden. But an executive order issued by Gov. Bruce Rauner Oct. 17 directs agencies to identify excessive regulations – and encourages Illinoisans to flag red tape that should be cut.

The new executive order mandates that Illinois’ executive bodies review all regulations for clarity, necessity and statutory authority as part of the governor’s Cutting the Red Tape Initiative. The governor has also urged all other state agencies to conduct a similar review.

The order introduces seven guidelines to ensure regulatory necessity, consistency and clarity, and to minimize needlessly burdensome requirements and prevent the processing delays that often accompany government regulations. The agencies have until May 1, 2017, to complete their comprehensive reviews, and current or proposed regulations that fail to meet the new criteria will be subject to revision or repeal at that time. The order also creates the Illinois Competitiveness Council, which will oversee the review process, establish cost-savings estimates, and solicit public feedback on existing regulations. An online conduit, the newly created Red Tape Reduction Portal, will allow Illinoisans to weigh in on the state’s regulations. Agencies will also have to post submitted regulations on this same site.

Overregulation and anti-jobs policies have made Illinois one of just four states with no private-sector jobs growth in the 21st century. And a survey from Chief Executive Magazine rated Illinois the worst state in the Midwest and fifth-worst in the nation in terms of taxes and regulation.

Burdensome and expensive regulation suppresses entrepreneurship and especially harms small businesses, which often cannot keep up with changing regulatory requirements or the cost of compliance. As opposed to serving the public interest, regulations often complicate business for entrepreneurs, increase consumer costs, and deter innovation and the creation of new enterprises – which means fewer jobs for Illinois.

As Illinois’ manufacturing sector continues to decline and the state’s workforce shrinks, lawmakers must stop regulating businesses out of existence and driving them out of state. Illinoisans cannot prosper while they’re tangled in red tape.

Illinois residents and businesses should take advantage of the Red Tape Reduction Portal to interact with policymakers and help trim the state’s excess regulations.
