Sanders & Wife Facing Fraud Charges

Remember Jane Sanders? She’s the smiling wife of Bernie Sanders who stood by his side as the socialist turned Democrat wannabe tried to run for president against Hillary Clinton, who had already had the fix in on the nomination. Well, it appears that Jane isn’t smiling these days. She’s hoping she doesn’t go to jail.

Mrs. Sanders was the president of a little school called Burlington College back in the early 2010’s, and she applied for a bank loan of $10 million to purchase 33 acres of land so the college could expand. However, on the application, she over-stated the fundraising of the school, stating that they had raised $2.6 million in 2010, when in fact over a four year period between 2010 and 2014 they only raised a little more than $600,000. Oops. When you sign your name to something like that, it’s called fraud.

It was the fact that the school only raised $676,000 over four years that they went bankrupt in 2016… and Jane joined Bernie full time on the campaign trail with nothing better to do.

Well, both Bernie and Jane have now lawyered up, and are facing fraud charges. It’s kind of funny that both Democrats trying for the White House may end up (or at the very least SHOULD end up) in jail for fraud, isn’t it? And this gets to the heart of the matter.

I cannot recall a time in my life when the Dems were so bankrupt. Morally, ethically, physically, financially, they just seem to be leaderless, rudderless, floating adrift with no direction, no message, no morals. And that worries me a great deal. Democrats out of power, as we have seen in the past six months, are utterly out of control. They make wild accusations, they say and do almost anything to get back in power, and it doesn’t have anything to do with the truth as we are witnessing with all of the false accusations about “Russia and Trump”. The longer they are out of power, the more desperate they become to do anything, say anything, be anybody that will get them elected, and get them back to where they feel they have a natural right to be.

Now, I will state emphatically that is not ALL Democrats. I know quite a few that believe in the principles of the left, are fervent about it, but wouldn’t cross the line. And I really believe that MOST Dems are like that, just as most Republicans are like that. But the ones leading the party aren’t. They are the crazies that do the off-the-wall stuff like Hillary has done, or that Jane Sanders has done, or that this idiot that’s running the DNC now is doing. They just go crazy…I mean, listen to what Chuck Schumer says about the Republican effort to replace and repeal Obamacare. He and Nancy Pelosi are beside themselves, yet they won’t admit to anybody that Obamacare is bankrupt and is taking the country with it. Why not? Because it would hurt their chances of getting back in power. That is their religion, and that is the only thing that matters to them.

No, Jane and Bernie Sanders may be in trouble, but they will kick and scream loud and long enough, and pay a fine in the end without going to jail. It is after all, the Democrat way, isn’t it?

CNN Admits “Fake News” Over The Weekend

In a very bizarre turn of events, CNN, which some had called the “Clinton News Network” during the election because of their politically left-leaning bias, has come out and admitted basically that they have put out “fake news” on Donald Trump.

It didn’t happen on the TV network, it happened on their website. They posted a story that said there were ties from a Russian investment firm to the Trump campaign during the election, and that the possibility was more than likely that the Russians donated money (that’s illegal as we learned during Bill Clinton’s re-election bid in 1996). The story was up for a very short period of time, and then was taken down because “The story did not meet CNN’s editorial standards and has been retracted. Links to the story have been disabled”. That was the “editor’s note” that replaced the story.

Of course, as is the case with most scandals anywhere, it’s not the crime that is the big problem, it’s the cover-up, and CNN is trying it’s best to cover up the whole incident. Their PR department isn’t explaining anything to anyone, even to CNN reporters that are covering the fake news story. In fairness, people like Donald Trump Jr., Sean Hannity, and Anthony Scaramucci all wrote about the fake news story, and all accepted CNN’s apology and said, “Let’s move on”. However, the CNN reporters aren’t about ready to do that just yet.

They are calling on CNN top dog Jeff Zucker to publicly address how such a credibility zapping event occurred in the first place, and what’s being done to make sure that it doesn’t happen again. Don’t forget, CNN has been tagged several times for airing untrue and totally fictitious stories about Donald Trump, both during the campaign, and since.

What is happening here is historical in nature. It’s extremely rare that a news network, or a network news program would admit publicly that their story was fake news. Oh, it’s happened before. Remember Dateline’s admission that the Ford trucks were actually set on fire several years ago to illustrate faulty gas tanks? Remember Dan Rather’s admission that he was off-base on several news stories he ran with? And what about Brian Williams, stretching the truth about his adventures in the Middle East? But these are all isolated incidents that hurt the networks they were on for a while, and then the public, with its MTV mentality gets past it. I can’t remember a time when a network that specializes in news, like CNN, has gotten away unscathed with not one or two, but handfuls of stories that have been shown to have been false from the start. When news organizations start making up news to enhance their political viewpoints (on either side of the fence), it dooms them.

Well, it has doomed CNN. Silence is the real killer here. People that were responsible need to be fired, and the CEO needs to resign. Only when fines are issued in the tune of tens of millions of dollars per episode, and the people responsible are never allowed to work in the industry again (like the Wall Street crowd faces) will they regain their credibility (if ever).

Whole “Russia Thing” A Dem Creation?

Well, it appears that way. There is a group known as “Fusion GPS” which says it was founded as a research group by three former Wall Street Journal investigative reporters, and it appears that this company is the source behind all of the Russian Dossier stuff involving the Trump campaign.

If you dig a little deeper, and yes, it doesn’t take an investigative reporter to do it, you can find out that the “three former Wall Street Journal investigative reporters”, never worked for WSJ, in fact, they are hacks for the Democrats. The whole company apparently was set up as a Pro-Hillary/Anti-Trump company and their entire mission was to do harm to Trump’s chances to being elected (so how did that work out for them?).

And, the Senate Judiciary Committee investigating this Russian thing has threatened to subpoena the company and its founders to get to the bottom of the situation. Want some more interesting facts? Remember how Hillary claimed that the guy that was behind the whole Brexit vote in Great Britain was also trying to smear her? Remember how she said there was an American working in cahoots with this person and that was where all of this started, and this Brit had ties to the Russian government? Well, it turns out that it wasn’t someone from England that was trying to smear Hillary. Actually, it was someone from England that was hired by Fusion GPS to dig up dirt on Donald Trump. The same person also was hired four years ago to dig up dirt on Mitt Romney.

Need more proof? Well, just head on over to The New York Post’s website. They have it all for you!

Now, IF this is true, and it’s looking more and more like it is, the whole Democrats’ playbook is about to be unveiled and blown to smithereens. IF this is true, what is really happening here isn’t dirty tricks being played on Hillary…it’s a large-scale operation that was funded by the Democrats and their large donors to do everything and anything to get Clinton elected president…and of course, none of it worked. And IF this is true, it should go a LONG way toward the actual dismantling of the Democrat party, because there are higher ups in Congress and in the party itself that are being accused of being involved.

And finally, IF this is true, Hillary Clinton, all of her staff and support structure that knew about this Fusion GPS group, as well as everyone that contributed money to the group to operate, AND the group and its employees itself, should be thrown in jail for a VERY, VERY long time.

Resist? Methinks that it is becoming time for the Democrats to take a very long, very hard look at their party, their ethics, their politics, and decide whether the “win at all cost” mentality that they’ve been displaying over the last 20 years really is worth it. You want to know who’s behind all the shenanigans going on in the elections in this country? Start with the Democrats.

SC Hands Trump Couple of Victories

Go ahead. Tell me Neil Gorsuch doesn’t make a difference. Actually, he didn’t in one of the biggest Trump victories of the year. In a decision that was “per curiam”, meaning “as a whole”, the court gave Donald Trump a victory in allowing him to temporarily go forth with his travel ban against six Middle Eastern countries.

The victory wasn’t complete however. There are still a couple of ways for people from the six banned countries to enter the US legally. If they are a college student coming to school here, they can still enter, and if they have been recruited by a US business, they can accept the position, and move to the US legally. The ban itself is only good for 120 days, though the high court will hear the case in its entirety the first part of October when the new court session begins. That means that probably for two or three months, the ban will not be in place when the Supreme Court is negotiating the final results of the ban.

Overall, it’s a victory for Trump, but not so much on a political level. It was a victory for Trump on a policy level. There is law already on the books that Trump was following that gives the president the power to determine immigration priorities and to enforce them. That was exactly what Trump had done. It was the idiotic ramblings of both the 4th and 9th Circuit Court of Appeals (the 9th is the most highly over-turned appellate court in the country) that made it political.

And so, what we are seeing is the beginning of a new era in Supreme Court decisions. With the 9th Circus pretty much out of the picture now, they aren’t going to be able to do more than slow down conservative agendas…with the Supreme Court standing by to slap them down on every count. Once again, it is the left’s version of trying to legislate from the bench that is going to be curtailed from here on out. And that is a good thing, regardless what side you are on. The courts in this country are not supposed to legislate, they are supposed to interpret laws. In this particular decision, both the 9th and 4th Circuits legislated from the bench, re-writing existing laws to fit their political agendas. That is a very dangerous situation and I’m very happy for one, to see it stopped dead in its tracks.

In another decision, the Trinity Lutheran Church won its case against the State of Missouri. If you missed this one it was a little weird. Trinity Lutheran had a pea gravel playground and wanted to take part in the State of Missouri’s Scrap Tire Program, whereby they use recycled tires to create a poured-in surface, making it much easier and safer for the children playing on the equipment. The State of Missouri had denied the request, citing Trinity Lutheran was a church and went with the old “separation of church and state” argument. The Supreme Court knocked that one down as well on a 7-2 vote with Ginsburg and Sotomayor dissenting.

It’s GOT To Stop!

Yeah, lately I’ve been on sort of a rant about the media, and the left and their vitriolic rhetoric and hate speech. Today, we shift gears. Today we talk about Donald Trump. See, it’s not just the left’s fault. Oh, trust me, a LOT of it is, but it’s also the fault of some (not all) of those on the right. And Donald J. Trump heads that list.

This guy loves to tweet because he says it gives him direct access to the public without having to go through a very liberal, very biased media. That is certainly true. But the thing Trump doesn’t understand is that sometimes…no, a LOT of the time, he needs a filter. He needs to have someone read his tweets before he hits the “send” button. I know that’s the unadulterated way on how he feels, but it’s not the way a president should be talking. It’s partly because of that you get idiots like Pelosi and Schumer spouting off their brand of hate-speech, which granted is 100 times worse than what Trump is saying, truth or not.

Basically, if Washington is going to cure this country’s problem of division, you aren’t going to do it by being on “Team Scalise” as Pelosi said at the charity baseball game the other night. You’re only going to do it by coming together and stop the in-fighting. Now, that’s going to be toughest for the Dems because that is really their only weapon, at least until next election. Trump has to, in his own mind, fight the Russian investigation, the obstruction of justice investigation, the media that’s out to get him, and the left in order to get his message out. But there are better ways. Every other president has used the “Bully Pulpit” and gone directly to the American public with TV speeches. Trump could certainly do an Oval Office speech telling everyone that he is going to stop using Twitter and start being “normal”. That would be a big first step in this. And he needs to do it sooner rather than later.

The media isn’t going to change until they are forced to. The only thing they understand are ratings, and unless we all stop watching news channels and the networks, they are going to get wilder and wilder and push the envelope as Megyn Kelly has shown. That is the only thing they listen to. Stop watching and listening to them, and watch how they change.

But it’s got to start somewhere, and I think if Trump were to quit Twitter and say that he’s doing it because that’s HIS part in all of this, it would be a big first step. Then the pressure goes to the snowflakes to change their behavior, and if they don’t, you bring out the finger pointing every time they spew their hate. You point at them and call them snowflakes, and tell them what ugly people they are and you do it in front of the TV cameras. You go on the talk shows and tell the hosts how biased they are. They’ll get the message soon enough. And of course, what I said the other day about slapping a $10,000,000 fine on any cable channel or network or newspaper that is spewing fake news, and banning the reporter from ever working in the industry again, would be a good second step.

Dems Argument On Health Care Doesn’t Hold Water

The word of the day for snowflakes everywhere is “mean”. The new Republican Healthcare bill making its way through the Senate is “mean”. The Republican House bill that was passed a while back is “mean”. The reason? Dems are worried that the GOP is going to tank their healthcare bill…which they don’t seem to think is mean. Let me respond to that.

The Democrats lied and cheated in order to get their healthcare bill through congress seven years ago. Do you remember all the cater walling and cajoling they did with their own members just to get their vote? If you were a member of either body of congress, and you wanted something…ANYTHING…all you had to do is say you weren’t going to vote for Obamacare until you got it, and VOILA! You got it.

Do you remember the president of the United States telling everybody repeatedly that “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor”? and “If you like your healthcare plan you can keep your healthcare plan”? Did he lie when he told you that? Of course he did. He knew damn well that you were going to lose your healthcare plan AND your doctor.

Did the Democrats know back then that there would come a time when insurance companies would pull out leaving states with one or in a lot of cases no insurance options? Did they know back then when they passed this monstrosity that the healthcare bill they were passing would go bankrupt in just seven years? Yes…they did.

So why did they do it in the first place?

Because Obamacare was a placeholder. Much like the Republican plan is a placeholder today. The GOP can’t repeal Obamacare because they don’t have 60 votes in the Senate. And there is no way any Democrat in the world is going to vote for the GOP plan. They would be committing political suicide. The Dems wanted Obamacare to fail so they could switch over to a single payer healthcare system (it’s called Socialized Medicine), and finish the job. Much like what the GOP is trying to do with the current bill. Pass something that gets rid of the bad parts of Obamacare, which is most, and then win eight seats in the Senate next year to be able to finish the job.

The other thing that bothers me is the language the snowflakes use. Obama himself calls the whole thing “mean” because if you plan on getting old, sick, or infirmed, you’re going to be out of luck. He isn’t taking any of the blame for HIS plan that is dying on the vine because no one wants it, insurance companies are bailing on it, and it’s going broke faster than my Uncle Luke in Vegas. That, in a nutshell is partisan, is a lie, and isn’t responsible. The Dems passed what we have and it’s dying. They need to stand up and take credit for their terrible judgement, and level with the American people.

I’m not saying the Republicans have the answer. Actually the answer is to get government out of the picture, and go back to what we had. We don’t need to have some behemoth governmental giant trying to tell us what we can and can’t get fixed with our health. That’s the problem the VA has right now…how’s that working out for the veterans in this country? But the deal is, when business has a handle on things, you let business fix what’s wrong with it, or people will stop doing business with them. If you let government handle something business should be handling you ALWAYS end up with something that costs way too much, delivers way too little, and is a terrible idea. It happens that way every single time it’s tried…and that’s just another reason liberalism doesn’t work!

California Universal Care Update

Here’s a quick update extra for you…remember I blogged a while back about how California was going to go above and beyond Obamacare and institute what they said was “Universal Care”? It was going to insure every citizen and non-citizen in the state with free medical care. Of course, the downside to that was it was going to cost twice as much as every other program the state pays for…tripling the size of the state’s budget and throwing it into immediate bankruptcy.

Well, it’s not going to happen. Assembly speaking Anthony Rendon has said that he’s going to put the brakes on the proposal because it’s “woefully inadequate”, and so he’s not going to pursue it this year at least.

That statement created a collective sigh from Californians who were going to see their taxes triple with the stroke of a pen. So much for “free” healthcare!
