Hillary Milhous Nixon or Richard Rodham Clinton?

A Simpler, Happier Time

In the course of investigating a burglary of the Democratic headquarters in Washington, DC, Congress discovered that Richard Nixon had a surreptitious system recording all White House conversations. This was not new. FDR and Ike had such systems, as did Johnson and Kennedy. I have no doubt that every president since has had one. I’ll allow for a smart president who may not have wanted one for fear of taping himself saying something embarrassing.

But in those days it was considered bad form for gentlemen to collect information on others in this fashion. (Yes, there was a time when such things actually meant something.) So it was incumbent upon congress to feign shock and appear to do something. Most historians of the era correctly conclude it was the discovery of the covert tapes that caused momentum to shift against Nixon in front of Sam Irvin’s Watergate committee. A subpoena was issued for the White House audiotapes. The purpose was to see what could be gleaned about the Watergate cover up operation.

To that point, investigators only had hard evidence of a break-in – no one was disputing it at this point – and rumors that Nixon found out about the break-in and tried to cover it up. BUT… the ace kicker that sent the White House into a death spiral was an 18-minute gap in the taped evidence.

To this day, it is not known what was in the missing 18 minutes. It could have been something about the cover up. It could have been something unrelated which was so sensitive that someone decided better to dump it and risk further legal damage than to risk it being played in open committee. Maybe it was something really juicy about Nixon or someone on the White House staff. No one knows. But it could also be that the person transcribing the tapes actually did hit the wrong button, letting the system run before discovering the error, thus taping over conversation. That was the official line at the time.

The general consensus was Nixon tampered with evidence. Few people could be convinced otherwise. At that point Nixon’s impeachment and ultimate conviction in the well of the Senate was considered inevitable. That’s because as corrupt and divided as we saw our government at the time, there was still at least some sense of duty among statesmen. A huge number of politicians in both parties decided to do the right thing. No one circled the wagons and redefined the English language to create a 100% false narrative to protect a party or an individual; not even the President of the United States!

Nixon X 30,000 Documents = Clinton

Flash forward to two years ago. We discovered we had a Secretary of State who was actually the tip of the spear in a criminal conspiracy to breach national security, break several federal records laws and break several sensitive information laws. A short history can be found here.

Later we found out she destroyed federal documents by the thousands. (This could have been avoided if the FBI hadn’t been reduced to a pack of political goons and had followed protocol upon discovering the existence of an illegal server being used to transmit official State communications.) Any single one of these acts was far more insidious than anything Nixon ever dreamed of doing. None of them were a prideful or misguided act to protect underlings. All were cynical, illegal acts performed by the principal suspect to protect herself from mandatory oversight and hide shady, pay-for-play scams with cronies and foreign governments.

And at no point did anyone actually do anything effective to thwart or punish the crimes. Oh sure, Jason Chaffetz and Trey Gowdey have made just enough hay to keep their names in the news, but even they have dragged their feet. The entire Democratic Party apparatus inside the beltway has chosen to embrace seedy corruption over honorable service to their country in allowing Hillary Clinton to walk in the face of SO MANY blatant crimes. The Department of Justice and the IRS have been reduced to thugs covering up the crimes of their betters rather than serving the country.

And this week we hear not only did Clinton destroy documentary evidence, she commissioned a civilian company – which was not cleared to hold the documents to begin with – to destroy their backups almost a full month AFTER subpoenas had been served and preservation orders had been issued for that very evidence.

We’re Not Just Mucking About Here!

The complaints listed here against Hillary Clinton are not vague law school theory. Crimes, serious crime, have been committed. The chief perpetrator is running for president, unmolested. Her co-conspirators still work for her and work for her slush fund. If you were suspected of the same crimes, you’d be jailed without bond pending trial. If you were a similar risk to national security and had the Clintons’ track record for corruption, no judge would let you walk the street after arraignment. Your house would have been torn apart within hours of the server being discovered. You would not have had the months Clinton had to purchase software designed to cover up crime and carefully use it to permanently erase evidence.

This is handcuffs and prison shit, folks. Every day Clinton walks free and is not tossed in the back of a police car is another victory for the political criminals who are wrecking this republic.

How did we ever end up here? At what point did the Democratic Party completely sellout to slime? The Clintons are like the Peanuts character, Pigpen. Everywhere they have gone, for the last 35 years, they have moved in a cloud of blatant corruption. There has always been a stench about them. And yet there is no shortage of people willing to debase themselves by following in their fetid wake.

There is no legitimate media in this country anymore. It is one thing to have an editorial line and spin commentary in favor of one candidate of another. It is something else entirely to ignore rampant crime and corruption and willfully further lies and obfuscation in order to see a candidate win office.


Serious Americans Need To Read This!

Are you one of the 60% who disapprove of the two “major” candidates?  Would you like to take control back from the ruling class.  Are you a Democrat sickened by the prospect of voting for Hillary?  Are you a Republican who realizes “the Donald” is a clown and a fraud?  Would you like to do something about it? Let’s see some guts!


What Will It Take?

Trump once said that if he stood on 5th avenue and shot someone, he wouldn’t loose his following. Does anyone remember the reaction the left had to that remark? So what would it take for them to pull the plug on Hillary and go with Biden or Kaine? Clearly, harming our military and our security doesn’t count for anything.

One needn’t be a naïve boy scout to be disgusted with it all. It isn’t puritanical to be sickened by the prospect of this nation being represented by an arrogant, self-serving felon. You don’t have to be a fanatical patriot to understand the disdain the military holds at the very idea of serving under such a person. Here, I am not speaking of the post-Vietnam “yes” men who populate the high offices of the Pentagon. I am talking about the professional soldiers in the field, officers and enlisted, who still have a sense of honor about them.

It appears doubtful that a very large number of voters share this sense of honor and dignity. If polls are accurate, about 45% of the people still think Hillary Clinton deserves their vote. Is it ignorance of the facts or a lack of fortitude?

Trump Was Actually Right On This!

If this guy gets it, what’s your problem?

I am still waiting for Trump to demonstrate even a rudimentary understanding of the office he pursues. To date, we must wait for the completely disassociated translations of his rants to hear what he meant on ANY subject. So when he gets something right, I celebrate!

The loyalty of the left-wing media to BJ Bill and his ethically bankrupt wife defies belief. I have always said there is no creature more pig-headed and obedient than the modern “progressive”. I have to giggle when I use that word because there has not been a clear-minded liberal in real leadership in this country since JFK. He would find “progressives” as narrow-minded and non-progressive as I do.

Since Bill Clinton decided to sexually harass his intern and other women, and then lie about it all under oath, as a sitting president, the media have tripped over themselves to abandon their supposed principles and cover for him.

Before I go any further, let me clarify something. What two consenting adults do in private is none of my business. I am the last person in the world who would call some one out for any type of consensual sex.  Sex, in my book, is never a bad word. It’s awesome!

But that is simply part of my world view. As a matter of law, I am obliged to accept the limitations placed upon us all to live up to a certain level of decorum. For example, when a president has sex with someone, it is only sex. It is none of our business. But when a President breaks the law and has an affair with an intern; when a sitting Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces intentionally pursues an affair his subordinates are routinely punished for; when the primary executive charged with protecting the constitution lies, in court, about sex with said subordinate; when that President exposes himself to blackmail by political opponents and our enemies; then even the most obtuse commentator is obliged, by reason alone, to call that president a criminal.

But not in our media. The policy of most of the American media is to meekly submit to their political betters and carry water for them. And that sick relationship between the press and the Clintons has continued uninterrupted since Bubba announced his candidacy for the Oval Office.

I mention this because the dandies in most media outlets have picked up the talking point assigned to them and declared BJ Bill’s crooked little schledium to be off-limits in this election. We are told Donald Trump crossed “the line” when he brought it up.

The real Hillary

Here’s why Trump was absolutely, undeniably right to call out Mrs. Bill Clinton over her husband’s behavior: She was the enabler who repeatedly allowed for Bill’s low treatment of women over decades. She was the architect of the character assassinations of anyone who spoke the truth about Bubba’s adolescent sexual pursuits. She was the person who attacked women who made rape allegations, thus enabling BJ Bill to go on to abuse more women. Since she lies about all that to this day, she is that same vicious unethical person today as she always was. Hillary Clinton is of a character both undeserving and too dangerously self-absorbed to serve as our representative to the world.

So in calling out the Clintons on Bill’s past, and in some cases, very recent past, Trump is nailing a character issue that is more clearly universal and real than any raised in a campaign in modern times (with the exception of the illegal server). In fact this may be the only thing that will stand between Mrs. BJ and the White House. It is near certain the FBI Director, James Comey has offered the FBI to the Clintons for use as a tool. So the illegal server, for which she should be doing time, isn’t going to stop her.

So perhaps Hillary’s proactive support and encouragement of Bill’s abuses will.

Another Love Letter to the Left.

Update: Watching the polls, I have to give proper respect to a growing number of Democrats who are showing real character and are no longer supporting Hillary just because they were ordered to do so by the thought police. Well done to all. I mean that sincerely.

When I was a kid, my mother worked for the Democrats. My parents were FDR fans who once had the opportunity to drive his son to our hometown from the airport – big stuff for a small-town couple.

A man named Joe Burleson would come by the house a lot during election seasons. He organized the distribution of leaflets and saw to providing poll monitors (a job my mother did every election, in all weather). I’m sure Mr. Burleson did more, but I don’t recall the details. He was a nice man.

I do remember that as I got older, I started to ask him questions about politics. I asked the difference in the parties, how hard it was to get elected to an office and so on. I also remember him being different from other Democrats as I understood them to be. The party was multi-faceted in those days. Everybody from local business people to early hippies to hard-nosed blue-collar types were a part of the mix and discussion was lively.

It’s not that way anymore. The only “business” people on the left nowadays are looking to the government to protect them from competition. They don’t really give a hoot in hell about issues. They just want to purchase a politician or two. The free-spirited hippies are now the thought Nazis running the party and everyone else is expected to fall into line lest they be labeled a hater, a liar, a scab or worse. It’s a pretty lock-step affair.

And the standard-bearer is someone without scruples, who will sign on to any idea, use anyone and throw anyone under the bus in order to garner more personal power. Does she care about the “war on women”? Not on your life. But it sounds good.

I started to believe that there was nothing, and possibly no one, in Democrat politics left to respect. Then, almost out of nowhere comes Bernie Sanders. He is a brash, sometimes cranky, unapologetic Socialist. I am fairly confident that he doesn’t understand how his ideology is in itself a corrupting influence. That, in a weird way, makes him more appealing to someone like me.

If Sanders were elected President, I (libertarian, fiscal conservative) would be disappointed, but would count myself as the loyal, if strident, opposition.

His chief opponent, HRC, is a complete contrivance of party and press. Real excitement for her candidacy exists only in the minds of Clinton doctrinaires, the press (often the same creature) and her staff. If you see her interviewed, you’d think the nation was on fire to see her elected and this illusion has been pushing the poles lately. Yet she still has a hard time filling even the smallest venues. That’s because many already think they have to hold their noses and vote for her. More on why in a minute, but that is the reason I am most bewildered by the modern lefty.

Who the hell says you must be so damned obedient? Look at Sanders again. Look at the folks who have ventured out to listen to him – by the thousands. Observe how steadfast he is to his principles. Can you say that about Hillary?

No, of course not. The fact is she hasn’t carried out a single post in government honorably or effectively. And that is not me talking. Every aspect of her political life has resulted in the need to lie, obfuscate, apologize or rationalize in order to justify her pending coronation.

I’ll give you one example among hundreds. I have watched with amusement as this woman’s campaign trotted out the misogynist-in-chief to stump for her. I hear pundits ominously warn the right not to go after Bill for his rapes and dalliances because he is so popular, being the first black president and all.[1. An interesting take on the term, discussing the woman who coined it] But the key to this discussion is not Bill. It’s Hillary. While Bill was mindlessly slapping his meat on tables across the country from California to Arkansas and DC, Hillary took it upon herself to be the lead character assassin, directing low-life operatives to destroy the character and sometimes the lives of those Bill used or abused. [2. Details here from Hitchens, no wide-eyed conservative, he.] In the present argument, Hillary is the problem and is most deserving of scorn. This can’t be spun.

In order to get past this, real liberals, honest Democrats must pretend it never happened so they can justify falling into line with the rest of the cattle and voting for this wretched political creature.

Look, Sanders is a Socialist. When she is not street-walking for big money donors, so is Hillary. While I see such politics as utterly wrong-headed, I still can’t understand why so many on the left would still give their loyalty, much less their vote to someone so undeserving as Clinton.

I hope many on the other side of the political divide consider this soon. I hope so as fervently as I hope Donald Trump proves he is not just a fly in the ointment before Iowa. What are the chances of either, would you say?
