This Is Your Victory – Brexit Passes!

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Vote

Brexit passed! My friends in Britain are celebrating and it is a very good day indeed. The spirits of Winnie Churchill and “Iron” Lady Thatcher smile down on Britain today.

Despite all odds, Britain has voted to leave the European Union for better or worse. They voted for freedom and survival. Well done lads. David Cameron has announced his resignation as Prime Minister. Numerous countries are now lining up to leave the EU as well. The pound went through the floor last night and stock markets are tanking all over the world. The Yen is soaring and I would bet gold is through the roof. Oil has fallen below $48 a barrel as well. Good times folks – this is going to be one hell of a ride. Hold on to your butts.

“It’s scary, and I’ve never seen anything like it,” said James Butterfill, 41, head of research and investments at ETF Securities in London. “A lot of people were caught out, and many investors will lose a lot of money.”

From Bloomberg:

Sterling slid by the most on record and European stocks headed for the biggest drop since 2008 as trading soared. The yen strengthened past 100 per dollar for the first time since 2013, gold rose the most in more than seven years and benchmark Treasury yields had their biggest drop since 2009.

The victory for the “Leave” campaign prompted Prime Minister David Cameron to resign. The outcome stunned many investors who’d put wagers on riskier assets over the past week as bookmakers’ odds suggested the chance of a so-called Brexit was less than one in four.

The final tally, announced just after 7 a.m. London time, showed voters had backed “Leave” by 52 percent to 48 percent. JPMorgan Chase & Co. and HSBC Holdings Plc said the result may prompt them to move thousands of jobs out of London. S&P Global Ratings said the U.K. will lose its AAA credit rating.

The price of freedom won’t be cheap here and if you think this isn’t going to affect America, you are a fool.

These are among the most notable moves in global financial markets:

  • British pound falls as much as 11 percent to $1.3229, weakest since 1985
  • Yen jumps 3.2 percent to 102.85 per dollar, after reaching 99.02
  • FTSE 100 Index slides as much as 8.7 percent, most since 2008
  • S&P 500 Index futures slump as much as 5.1 percent, triggering a trading curb
  • Yield on 10-year Treasuries drops 29 basis points to 1.46 percent
  • Gold surges as much as 8.1 percent to $1,358.54 an ounce
  • New York crude oil retreats 3.8 percent to $48.20 a barrel, poised for biggest loss since April
  • Poland’s zloty, South Africa’s rand drop more than 4 percent per dollar, lead emerging-market currencies lower

It will take Britain two years to exit. There will be financial rangling and regulation amendments during this time. George Soros says this is the end of the EU… let it be so. It should never have happened in the first place. No one says it better than my friend Denise Simon: “Populism and Elitism finally lost… the people have spoken and the battle for independence is long and hard but ultimately sweet. Citizens are disgusted with being ruled by Belgium.” May the same come to America.

I will leave you for now with David Cameron’s resignation speech – it made my day:

“Good morning everyone, the country has just taken part in a giant democratic exercise, perhaps the biggest in our history.

Over 33 million people from England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Gibraltar have all had their say.

We should be proud of the fact that in these islands we trust the people for these big decisions.

We not only have a parliamentary democracy, but on questions about the arrangements for how we’ve governed there are times when it is right to ask the people themselves and that is what we have done.

The British people have voted to leave the European Union and their will must be respected.

I want to thank everyone who took part in the campaign on my side of the argument, including all those who put aside party differences to speak in what they believe was the national interest and let me congratulate all those who took part in the Leave campaign for the spirited and passionate case that they made.

The will of the British people is an instruction that must be delivered.

It was not a decision that was taken lightly, not least because so many things were said by so many different organisations about the significance of this decision.

So there can be no doubt about the result.

Across the world people have been watching the choice that Britain has made.

I would reassure those markets and investors that Britain’s economy is fundamentally strong and I would also reassure Britons living in European countries and European citizens living here there will be no immediate changes in your circumstances.

There will be no initial change in the way our people can travel, in the way our goods can move or the way our services can be sold.

We must now prepare for a negotiation with the European Union.

This will need to involve the full engagement of the Scottish, Welsh and Northern Ireland governments to ensure that the interests of all parts of our United Kingdom are protected and advanced.

But above all this will require strong, determined and committed leadership.

I’m very proud and very honoured to have been Prime Minister of this country for six years.

I believe we’ve made great steps, with more people in work than ever before in our history, with reforms to welfare and education, increasing people’s life chances, building a bigger and stronger society, keeping our promises to the poorest people in the world and enabling those who love each other to get married whatever their sexuality, but above all restoring Britain’s economic strength.

And I’m grateful to everyone who’s helped to make that happen.

I have also always believed that we have to confront big decisions, not duck them.

That is why we delivered the first coalition government in 70 years, to bring our economy back from the brink.

It’s why we delivered a fair, legal and decisive referendum in Scotland.

And it’s why I made the pledge to renegotiate Britain’s position in the European Union and to hold the referendum on our membership and have carried those things out.

I fought this campaign in the only way I know how, which is to say directly and passionately what I think and feel – head, heart and soul.

I held nothing back, I was absolutely clear about my belief that Britain is stronger, safer and better off inside the European Union and I made clear the referendum was about this and this alone – not the future of any single politician including myself.

But the British people have made a very clear decision to take a different path and as such I think the country requires fresh leadership to take it in this direction.

I will do everything I can as Prime Minister to steady the ship over the coming weeks and months but I do not think it would be right for me to try to be the captain that steers our country to its next destination.

This is not a decision I’ve taken lightly but I do believe it’s in the national interest to have a period of stability and then the new leadership required.

There is no need for a precise timetable today but in my view we should aim to have a new prime minister in place by the start of the Conservative Party conference in October.

Delivering stability will be important and I will continue in post as Prime Minister with my Cabinet for the next three months.

The Cabinet will meet on Monday, the Governor of the Bank of England is making a statement about the steps that the Bank and the Treasury are taking to reassure financial markets.

We will also continue taking forward the important legislation that we set before Parliament in the Queen’s Speech.

And I have spoken to Her Majesty the Queen this morning to advise her of the steps that I am taking.

A negotiation with the European Union will need to begin under a new prime minister and I think it’s right that this new prime minister takes the decision about when to trigger Article 50 and start the formal and legal process of leaving the EU.

I will attend the European Council next week to explain the decision the British people have taken and my own decision.

The British people have made a choice, that not only needs to be respected but those on the losing side of the argument – myself included – should help to make it work.

Britain is a special country – we have so many great advantages – a parliamentary democracy where we resolve great issues about our future through peaceful debate, a great trading nation with our science and arts, our engineering and our creativity, respected the world over.

And while we are not perfect I do believe we can be a model for the multi-racial, multi-faith democracy, that people can come and make a contribution and rise to the very highest that their talent allows.

Although leaving Europe was not the path I recommended, I am the first to praise our incredible strengths.

I said before that Britain can survive outside the European Union and indeed that we could find a way.

Now the decision has been made to leave, we need to find the best way and I will do everything I can to help.

I love this country and I feel honoured to have served it and I will do everything I can in future to help this great country succeed. Thank you very much.”

Louie Gohmert Unleases on House Democrats During Sit-In on Gun Violence

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Good for Louie Gohmert! What a bunch of fascist pansies the Democrats are. It’s obvious to all of America that a radical Jihadist killed 49 people in Orlando… it was not a gun issue. Gohmert was having none of this insanity and went down to the floor to unload on the Marxists. It was epic. He physically got into it with Corrine Brown and they had to be pulled apart. Say it with me now… Islamic terrorism.

Louie Gohmert

From The Hill:

Tensions between Democrats and Republicans reached a boiling point late Wednesday night, with one GOP lawmaker getting into a shouting match over a sit-in aimed at forcing votes on gun control measures.

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) shouted at Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) and other Democrats, yelling, “Radical Islam killed these people,” pointing to posters with photos of gun violence victims.

He was drowned out by chants from Democrats calling for “No bill, no break.”

According to reports from the scene, Gohmert got into a particularly heated exchange with Rep. Corrine Brown (D-Fla.), whose district includes the site of the massacre in Orlando last weekend. Other lawmakers had to separate the two.

The spat followed a tense vote on a measure unrelated to gun control, in which Speaker Paul Ryan attempted to take back control of the floor, causing an eruption of chants from Democrats who had been holding the floor for more than 12 hours.

Gohmert was totally bad ass and did exactly what is called for here. I’m surprised they didn’t beat Louie half to death for standing up to these commies. Gohmert was a constitutional warrior against the Star Wars bar scene in Congress. These people are acting like they are five… pitching a tantrum in Congress and throwing a fit because they don’t get their way on gun control and eviscerating the 2nd Amendment. Only these children are violent and evil. Gohmert at least has a set and says something. Things are coming apart in America fast and are about to get very bad. Where was everyone else on this? Do we only have a couple of guys with the stones to stand up to these fascists? Utterly corrupt and so very pathetic.

Trump is the end of the Christian right…

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton
Hat Tip: The New Americana

Baal

From Michael Farris on Facebook:

I attended the very first meeting of the Moral Majority held in Indianapolis in February of 1980. I was the Washington state director of the MM and have been a leader of the “Christian right” ever since.

Today an estimated 1000 evangelical leaders are making a pilgrimage to Trump Tower to “listen” to Donald Trump.

The organizer of this meeting came to my office to tell me in person why I wasn’t being invited. I had been too vocal in my antiTrump views.

I appreciated his courtesy in coming to me and he agreed that the obvious implication of the meeting was to rally support for Trump.

While I don’t question the motives of those who are trekking to the Tower, I strongly dissent from the wisdom of their chosen path.

This meeting marks the end of the Christian Right. The premise of the meeting in 1980 was that only candidates that reflected a biblical worldview and good character would gain our support.

Today, a candidate whose worldview is greed and whose god is his appetites (Philippians 3) is being tacitly endorsed by this throng.

They are saying we are Republicans no matter what the candidate believes and no matter how vile and unrepentant his character.

They are not a phalanx of God’s prophets confronting a wicked leader, this is a parade of elephants.

In 1980 I believed that Christians could dramatically influence politics. Today, we see politics fully influencing a thousand Christian leaders.

This is a day of mourning.

I agree 1000%. This is prophetic to me. 1000 evangelical leaders kneeling before Donald Trump at Trump Tower is the height of blasphemy. It reminds me of those who worship before Baal. The Christian Right is no more.

Outside of a framework of prophecy, it isn’t the business of politics to dictate to moral leaders… politicians are not moral leaders… when moral leaders go to politicians for advice on how to persuade their constituents, their flocks, their congregations, then we have an inversion of moral and ethical principle. We have the people who should be guided by moral leadership, instead dictating to moral leadership. This means instead of power being guided by enlightenment, enlightenment is being alloyed, coerced and “persuaded” by power. Historically, the most recent and starkest example of this is the visage of Hitler replacing the crucifix at the alters of so many churches in early 20th century Germany and as we all remember, morality was one of the first casualties of that power structure.

Trump’s Latest… The Art of Losing

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton
Hat Tip: The New Americana

Trump1

Either Donald Trump is the most incompetent politician I have ever seen, or he is throwing this election. Yesterday started off badly for the Trump campaign and got progressively worse.

Trump’s strategy and tactics during this election have made absolutely no sense. In the primaries, as he swept from state to state winning, he let his people go. He left virtually no one on the ground to fight in the main showdown between Trump and Clinton. He used people to win delegates and then discarded them. His campaign staff is down to approximately 30 people and several of those are family members – those family members are all Democrats and have heavily supported Dems in previous elections. He has 1/10th the staff that Clinton has. Compare that to Clinton who has around 400 staff members working for her. He has just over $1 million in the bank, compared to Hillary Clinton, who currently has over $43 million to use and her accounts are growing. Trump does not have staffed teams working on communications, data, rapid response or his ground game.

Trump6

Hillary Clinton and her allies have reserved roughly $117 million in ad time between now and Election Day, including more than $20 million in key swing states over the next few weeks alone. The Trump figure for that same period is $0. In fact, Trump has announced he will not go after Clinton until after the convention is held. A pro-Trump super PAC announced a $700,000 buy, but not only is that a drop in the bucket, it isn’t directly from Trump. Self-funding? Any funding would be an improvement.

Until yesterday, we didn’t know how much Trump had raised. But yesterday was an FEC filing deadline. Hillary Clinton raised $28 million in May. Trump raised $3 million and loaned his campaign another $2 million, ending the month with a little over $1 million in the bank. This is not how you run a campaign for the presidency. He can’t possibly pull off a win this way and I believe he knows it. Did you know that Ben Carson’s campaign has more cash on hand than Trump’s right now? I’m not kidding. Ted Cruz has six times more cash on hand right now than Donald Trump and Cruz dropped out at the beginning of May. We are less than five months from election day and Trump hasn’t even approached the starting line, much less started running. Hillary is already picking out drapes for the White House.

Trump2

Aside from the lack of money, the turmoil within the Trump campaign is a full fledged dumpster fire. Last month, Donald Trump fired his national political director of just a few weeks. Today, less than a month before the Republican convention kicks off, he cut loose campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. Then he gets rid of another top aid for putting out a tweet later in the day. Word has it that bedlam reigns in the Trump camp. Lewandowski should have been fired long ago, but others on Trump’s team are just about as bad. Rumor has it those that were loyal to Corey are on the chopping block. Pretty soon there won’t be anyone left.

My favorite tweet out there on this comes from Michelle Fields:

Trump3

And Ben Shapiro nailed it:

Trump4

Here’s a chart that is truly sobering:

Trump5

Trump is losing ground, not gaining out there. All the propaganda and conned masses in the world can’t change the fact that everywhere you look, Trump is despised and not wanted as president.

Pro-Clinton Priorities USA just released their best fundraising month numbers yet. They collected more than $12 million. So far, they have collected $88.7 million, with another $45 million in pledges. “The organized and well-funded push for Clinton contrasts sharply with the chaos that surrounds the groups supporting Trump,” reports Matea Gold. “At least five super PACs are in the mix, creating confusion among donors unsure where to put their money.” There is little data available from most of the groups, but “one of the first groups on the scene, Great America PAC, has raised just $3.5 million since forming in February.

“The super PAC rolled out a new ad Monday spotlighting the massacre in Orlando and featuring a former Navy SEAL who touts Trump as ‘willing to make tough choices to protect America.’ The spot is part of a $700,000 TV campaign set to air nationally and in key states over the next several weeks.”

Here’s the ad:

It’s an impressive ad, but the majority of the military does not support Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. In fact, Trump has at least twice made statements about military members stealing money from Iraq and his fundraising for vets has not released all the funds for them yet. I personally don’t consider him a friend of military personnel and I know many who feel the same way.

Not only is Trump running a flailing, losing campaign… he has his kids handling it and he is also not taking direction or advice from anyone.

Trump has been a Democrat most of his life. Suddenly, he donned Republican garb and went out among the sheep who flocked to his propaganda and lies. He must laugh himself silly that people are sooo very gullible. They are actually desperate… people will do anything to keep Hillary out of office and after losing so long under the incompetent Republican powers-that-be, they just want to win again. But what if the pied piper that says he will lead them to victory is just Hillary in drag? Or worse yet, a plant to ensure that Hillary Clinton becomes president? If that were the case, would Trump be doing anything different than he is now?

Look at who is currently helping him. Ivanka Trump is a Democrat as is her husband Jared Kushner. Jared is Jewish and Ivanka has converted to Judaism. Trump has used him as a prop to win over the Jewish community. But remember, Trump talks of a two-state solution and withdrawing support for Israel. It’s all sleight of hand and pandering.

Kushner contributed more than $100,000 to Democratic campaigns and committees over two decades. Considering his fortune, that’s not so much, but he is a supporter of liberal, Democratic candidates. And he is the man running Trump’s campaign now. His father is also a wealthy real estate tycoon who was sent to prison for witness tampering… by Chris Christie. Dear old dad was known for mafia-like tactics, so he has a lot in common with Trump.

It is widely believed that Jared and Ivanka were the ones behind the abrupt firing of Lewandowski. From what I hear, Trump didn’t even go see the guy… he called him and then he was led out of Trump Tower by a couple of security guards. It’s pretty clear who is calling the shots now and it’s all in the family.

Both Jared and Ivanka were supporters of Barack Obama and his policies, with a special emphasis on President Obama’s executive actions on immigration reform. Tell me how that jives with Trump’s stance on the issue? It is one more indicator to me that he will not keep his word on that subject. He’ll negotiate and shift.

Kushner contributed $2,000 to Hillary Clinton’s 2000 campaign for U.S. Senate in New York and later contributed $4,000 to the committee supporting then-Sen. Clinton in 2003. Recipients of Kushner’s contributions also include Sens. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Robert Menendez (D-NJ), both of whom were members of the so-called Gang of Eight pushing for congressional legislation on immigration reform in 2013.

Kushner has also contributed to the campaigns of Democratic lawmakers who cheered Obama for granting temporary legal status to millions of illegal immigrants. He has donated to Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-NJ), both of whom celebrated the controversial executive order as encouraging, productive and necessary.

The lone Republican recipient of Kushner’s money was former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani. Kushner contributed $1,000 to an exploratory committee for Giuliani’s U.S. Senate bid in 1999, FEC records show.

Trump has himself contributed to Democratic committees in the past, including committees associated with Clinton, Menendez, Schumer and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV). Trump also donated to the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation, which he has said drew the Clintons to his 2005 wedding. The business mogul only ramped up his donations to Republican groups and candidates in the last five years, while he was preparing to run on the Republican ticket and hoodwink the entire party.

Kushner made the contributions under a number of different companies that are associated with Kushner Companies, where Jared works as chief executive. The real estate and development company was started by Charles Kushner, Jared’s father, who is a multimillionaire Democratic donor. Charles Kushner was sentenced in New Jersey federal court to two years in prison for tax evasion, witness tampering and making illegal campaign donations in 2005. The FEC also fined Kushner over $500,000 for making the illegal campaign donations. He’s out now and is being low-profile, but his son is very prominent… especially now in the Trump campaign.

Ivanka has also contributed significantly to Democrats:

Ivanka contributed $16,500 to Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in the 2006 midterms when then-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was fighting Republicans. She contributed $7,500 to Harry Reid’s Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee that same midterm election year. Ivanka also gave $8,000 to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in 2008 during a presidential election year.

She has also contributed $4,000 to California’s far-left Attorney General Kamala Harris; $17,500 New York’s Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo; the Democrats’ National Leadership PAC in 2006 and 2008 – an organization associated with the “Act Blue” 527 organization during years that Democrats were fighting against Republicans; and $7,700 to far-left Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, a pro-abortion feminist who supports protecting LGBT community members from illegal immigration deportations.

Other Democrats that Ivanka Trump contributed to are: Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand ($2,000); Hillary Clinton for U.S. Senate and president ($3,400); the Democrats’ scandalous Eliot Spitzer for governor ($3,000); liberal Congressman Charlie Rangel; California’s liberal Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom ($500); democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer ($4,500) in 2014; and Democrat Sen. Cory Booker as recently as 2014 ($20,400).

It appears that out of more than 30 campaign contributions, Ivanka only contributed to three Republican campaigns – John McCain, Mitt Romney/Paul Ryan for president ($75,000) and Carly Fiorina. Her contributions to Republicans represents less than 10 percent of her contributions – the rest have been to Democrats.

So, we have a candidate with a Democratic history and his children who are ostensibly running his campaign and have a Democratic history. We have a team that is imploding and what few that are on staff are being fired. Trump has spent the past few weeks doing almost everything you would do if you were trying to throw an election, from attacking a federal judge over his Mexican heritage to not building a serious ground game or actively raising the money necessary to wage a credible campaign for the presidency. He’s not savaging Clinton as you would expect him to and he is not making nice with the GOP or the delegates.

Instead, he has masterfully used propaganda through Fox News, the Drudge Report, Breitbart, Gateway Pundit and others to get his message out. Whenever things die down a bit, he creates a new emergency so he can be in the headlines again. He aims his messages and speeches at his audience depending on the crowd he speaks in front of and how they feel that day.

Trump is already blaming people for stealing the convention from him:

Trump7

Trump says if offered $5 billion to drop out, “I guess we’d have to think about it.” And while he keeps all that up, a delegate revolt is indeed brewing at the convention. The GOP may just decide in the end to risk a revolt and go with someone else more stable and presidential. Someone more ‘Republican’. 48% of Republicans now want a different nominee.

Trump is also quickly becoming a massive joke:

For all the world it looks to me as if Trump is looking for an exit or is simply going to ‘lose’ to Hillary and then blame others for it, while enriching himself once again and maybe getting a news network or something out of the deal. Clinton is leading Trump even with all her scandals and the fact that everyone hates her to pieces. Trump should write a new book: The Art of Losing. It would be a best seller after this fiasco.

Terror In Orlando – War Comes To America

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Pic

Yesterday, I wrote at length on the Orlando massacre here and here. Despite Obama, Clinton and Sanders seizing on the gun issue, this was an act of war by ISIS. It was radical Islam at play. It cost us scores of lives and is the deadliest attack since 9/11.

Terror has struck in Orlando, Florida at the city’s trendiest gay party spot, the Pulse nightclub. A shooter with Islamic leanings came into the club just as they were closing at 2 a.m. We are now in the month of Ramadan. He had a suicide vest, a rifle and a handgun. Hostages were taken and at least 50 were slaughtered. Approximately 53 others were injured. One officer was shot and his Kevlar helmet saved him. The shooter was killed by police. This is being called a mass casualty situation and it is now labeled domestic terrorism. According to WESH-TV, the casualties were so numerous that many of the injured had to be transported to the hospital in unmarked pick-up trucks instead of ambulances. A bomb squad and a crisis negotiator were called to the scene, the station reported. A mother outside said her son had texted her: “He’s rounded us up and he’s going to kill us.”

We now know the shooter was a warrior for ISIS and the Caliphate. Orlando Police Chief John Mina said officers were called to Pulse Orlando, a popular gay nightclub, at around 2 a.m. after reports of a shooting. He said officers were engaged in a gun battle outside the club before the suspect went back into the building where more shots were fired. It was reported that the gunman then took several hostages. About three hours later, Mina said officials made the decision to rescue the hostages in the club. They blew a hole in a wall to rescue approximately 30 of the 100 hostages taken. He said SWAT officers exchanged fire with the gunman and killed him. Pulse Orlando posted on its own Facebook page around 2 a.m.: “Everyone get out of pulse and keep running.” Just before 6 a.m., the club posted an update: “As soon as we have any information we will update everyone. Please keep everyone in your prayers as we work through this tragic event. Thank you for your thoughts and love.” Mina Justice was outside the club early Sunday trying to contact her 30 year-old son Eddie, who texted her when the shooting happened and asked her to call the police. He told her he ran into a bathroom with other club patrons to hide. He then texted her: “He’s coming.” The next text said: “He has us, and he’s in here with us,” she said. That was the last conversation. What a horrific tragedy.

We now know that the shooter was Omar Mir Seddique Mateen who is from Port St. Lucie, Florida. He is of Afghani descent and authorities are saying he has ties to radical Islam. We also know he yelled Allah-hu-Akbar as he mowed people down. He pledged his allegiance to ISIS in a 911 call while the event was taking place.

From Heavy.com:

Omar Mir Seddique Mateen has been named as the gunman who killed 50 people and wounded 53 others at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, CBS News reports.

He was later killed by police after taking hostages at the LGBT club.

Mateen, 29, is a U.S. citizen of Afghani descent from Port St. Lucie, Florida, according to CBS News. He has ties to radical Islamic ideology, CBS reports. His name was confirmed by U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson at a press conference.

PicA

1. Who is the shooter?: Omar Mir Seddique Mateen is a 29 year-old man from Port St. Lucie, Florida. He is an Afghani American and was on a person of interest list connected to terrorism. Police have not yet said why Mateen attacked the nightclub. His father told MSNBC that the shooting was not about his son’s religion, but that his son became very angry after seeing two men kissing in Miami months ago. He said “we are apologizing for the whole incident.” Mateen drove to Orlando to commit the terrorist attack. He had no criminal history. The gunman who killed at least 50 people at an Orlando nightclub early Sunday was a licensed security officer who claimed more than once that he had connections to Islamic terror groups. He had extensive weapons training.

2. How many were killed and injured?: At least 50 are now dead and approximately 53 are injured. Many critically, so the death toll is thought to rise. This is the worst death toll from terrorism on American soil since 9/11. There were 320 people in the club at the time of the shooting.

3. When and where did this happen?: The attack began around 2 a.m. in Orlando. Mateen exchanged gunfire with police before going into the Pulse nightclub to take hostages. He held approximately 100 hostages for several hours before killing en masse within the club. “The officer engaged in a gun battle with that suspect. The suspect at some point went back inside the club and more shots were fired. This did turn into a hostage situation,” Orlando Police Chief John Mina said at a press conference. They now believe there was a bomb that he did not get a chance to detonate. He had a rifle and a handgun as well.

4. How was the attacker killed?: The gunman was killed by SWAT during the hostage crisis. They were attempting to rescue the hostages, who were being executed. This happened around 5 a.m. An officer was wounded during the shootout, but was saved by his Kevlar helmet. More than 30 hostages were rescued from the club. At the time, it was believed only 20 had died in the horrific killing spree.

5. Ties to radical Islam: Local FBI Assistant Special Agent-in-Charge Ron Hopper said at the press conference that there are “suggestions” the gunman “may have leanings” toward Jihadist ideology. Hopper had been asked about whether the shooter was connected to radical Islamic terrorism. Hopper said they can’t say definitively whether the gunmen is connected to that ideology. He said we’re looking into all angles right now.” ISIS has posted messages on Twitter cheering the killing spree. Indonesian Islamic radicals also praised the slaughter. Per Fox News, Senator Bill Nelson of Florida is now saying they have information that the attack is connected to ISIS.

6. Was this pre-planned?: The attack was well-organized and planned for. Police are now searching his home and trying to determine if there were others involved in this. We are now in the Islamic holy month of Ramadan and ISIS has commanded their followers to kill Americans everywhere they can. In an Arabic message released online, purportedly from ISIS spokesman Abu Mohammed al-Adnani, further attacks were urged against the West during Ramadan.

PicB

Three days ago, ISIS Muslim terrorists released a statement on their plan to attack Florida and even put out a list with the names of people in Florida that they plan on killing.

Pulse2

7. What is the shooter’s background?: Both of Mateen’s parents are originally from Afghanistan. He was born in New York and was 29 years-old. He was married in 2009, public records show. It is not clear if he was still married at the time of the attack, but he does have a little girl. Mateen is a registered Democrat who has also lived in Fort Pierce, Florida.

And there’s more… Mateen worked for a security company that visited federal buildings and transported illegal aliens. He also worked as security at a juvenile facility. He was interviewed by the FBI three separate times. His co-workers warned that he claimed he had terrorist ties. He was unstable and beat his wife. And the list goes on and on.

Omar Mateen’s father was an activist for the Taliban. Note the radio network that gave him airtime, Payem e Afghan, a radio show in California called Durand Jirga. So, when the father claims this had nothing to do with religion, that was an outright lie. The same lie that came from ISNA and CAIR yesterday on Fox News.

ISIS was quick to take credit for the atrocity. We are at war and we had better start acting like it. If we don’t stop blaming guns and Christians and anything BUT Islamists for this, we are going to lose thousands, if not millions, of Americans to these monsters. We need real, concrete solutions and a leader who is willing to fight our enemies without apology and aggressively. War has come to America… will we fight or stay on our knees?

Reagan’s “A Time For Choosing” – History Is Repeating Itself

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Ronald Reagan

I have just recently watched Ronald Reagan’s 1964 speech: “A Time For Choosing” again. It strikes me that exactly what he was putting forth in that speech is as relevant today as it was then. Perhaps even more so. A copy of the full transcript will follow the video at the end of this post, so you can see and hear for yourself the Great Communicator and what he had to say all those years ago. The speech was given during the Barry Goldwater campaign and in effect, launched Ronald Reagan’s political career. His prescient words never cease to affect and move me.

As Reagan pointed out then, the issues confronting us now cross party lines. We no longer are seeing two separate distinct parties. We see Progressives on both sides working towards a political agenda that is Marxist in nature and two potential candidates that once the makeup and reality TV personas are removed, are strikingly similar. Now as then, the Democrats are pushing the ‘peace and prosperity’ line and that we have never had it so good. In fact, Obama has been saying that now for weeks, despite the reality that Americans are living and seeing with their own eyes.

Today, we see an actual unemployment rate north of 30%. That’s not the propagandic lie the masses are told… the laughably low number of 4.7% is sheer horrific revisionism. These are numbers not seen since the Great Depression. Bread lines are hidden using EBT cards… joblessness is white washed with benefits and massaged statistics… debt is simply ignored. Under Obama, we now owe well over $19 Trillion in debt and that doesn’t even begin to cover the unfunded liabilities hanging out there. A nation, even the strongest in the world, cannot long exist under such debt. I also believe our gold vaults are empty. And it is only a matter of time now until the dollar is absolutely worthless on the world market. Our enemies are sure to come calling at that point in time.

As for peace, there is no peace at hand. Thanks to the Progressive policies implemented before and after 9-11, we now live in a new world that is far more dangerous than it ever was before, where Islamic terrorists are running rampant across the planet. We are also actively funding our biggest enemies and the largest purveyors of terrorism on the planet… the Iranians. Obama has granted nuclear weapons to insane theocratic mass murderers and that will not end well.

State Department Basically Claims Hillary’s Emails Will Never Be Released

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Hillary

The State Department, who has been known for telling whoppers, lobbed a doozy last week. State Department lawyers now say that it will take about 75 years to release all of Hillary Clinton’s emails. Let me translate that for you… those emails implicate a whole bunch of people in corruption along with Clinton and we won’t release them until (a) all of you are long dead and (b) until the Democrats are in the clear. This, my friends, is political two-step bull crap.

The court filing took place last Wednesday. In that filing, it was noted that the records requested in two lawsuits by the Republican National Committee (which are about 450,000 pages worth), included communications from Clinton’s aides Cheryl Mills and Jacob Sullivan. They also included emails from State Department official Patrick Kennedy.

“Given the Department’s current [Freedom of Information Act] (FOIA) workload and the complexity of these documents, it can process about 500 pages a month, meaning it would take approximately 16-and-2/3 years to complete the review of the Mills documents, 33-and-1/3 years to finish the review of the Sullivan documents, and 25 years to wrap up the review of the Kennedy documents – or 75 years in total,” the lawyers wrote.

Now, that’s a whole new level of blatant hubris that even shocks me. And I’m politically jaded. The State Department is whining that FOIA requests have tripled since 2008. Gee, I wonder why? “In fiscal year 2015 alone we received approximately 22,000 FOIA requests,” State Department spokeswoman Elizabeth Trudeau said.

“The requests are also frequently more complex and seek larger volumes of documents, requiring significantly more time, resources, and interagency coordination. While we have increased staffing for our FOIA office, our available resources are still nonetheless constrained.”

Oh, freaking boo hoo! That’s your job and it doesn’t take anywhere nearly that long to release those documents. This is the DC shuffle and everyone knows it. They have absolutely made transparency a joke and corruption mainstream. That’s Hillary Clinton for you.

Hillary Clinton vs. the Second Amendment

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton
Hat Tip: The New Americana

Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton just outright refused to say during an interview yesterday that owning a gun was a constitutionally protected right. I’m not surprised in the least, but she is certainly getting more and more brazen about it.

George Stephanopoulos asked her point blank concerning the issue: “Do you believe that an individual’s right to bear arms is a constitutional right, that it’s not linked to service in a militia?” She gave a very weaselly answer: “I think that for most of our history, there was a nuanced reading of the Second Amendment until the decision by the late Justice [Antonin] Scalia, and there was no argument until then that localities and states and the federal government had a right, as we do with every amendment, to impose reasonable regulations,” Clinton responded. That is a flat out lie. The federal government does not have a right period in regards to constitutional amendments to impose regulations. That has never been true. The rights are granted to the people, not the government. Not only did she sidestep the question, she gave an even worse answer here. She is basing an outrageous answer on the fact that the federal government has gotten away with overreach forever and since they have, she feels that it is now the ‘right’ of the government to keep doing so. No… it is not. The government is granted certain powers that the people giveth and the people can taketh from them.

She added, “So I believe we can have common-sense gun safety measures consistent with the Second Amendment.” Not the way she means it and not mandated by the government. Common sense measures are those such as: don’t point the gun at things you don’t mean to shoot; keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot; be absolutely sure of your target and what’s behind it… and then there is Rule #1… all guns are always loaded.

Clinton’s lapdog Stephanopoulos wasn’t done though: “But that’s not what I asked,” Stephanopoulos interjected. “I said, do you believe that their conclusion that an individual’s right to bear arms is a constitutional right?” She didn’t answer once again, but notice the use of ‘if’: “If it is a constitutional right, then it, like every other constitutional right, is subject to reasonable regulations, and what people have done with that decision is to take it as far as they possibly can and reject what has been our history from the very beginning of the republic, where some of the earliest laws that were passed were about firearms.” It is a constitutional right and it is not automatically subject to regulations. It does not say that in the Constitution. The Constitution restrains the government, it does not give them carte blanche to control our rights. Per the Constitution, the government is supposed to keep its damned hands to itself. Constitutionalists interpret the Second Amendment the way it was written and intended… not redefined to fit the agendas of politicians and the federal government. That’s called tyranny.

Clinton

Hillary Clinton did suggest that gun owners do have a right, but then she claimed “the rest of the American public has a right to require certain kinds of regulatory, responsible actions to protect everyone else.” Again, no… they do not. There is no constitutional provision that says that. Clinton simply wants to do away with the Second Amendment altogether, or at the very least, redefine it progressively, so she can disarm America. It’s just that simple.

The Second Amendment states: “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” Hillary’s deflections aside, she chooses not to interpret the meaning of this amendment in the spirit it was meant because it does not fit her political views.

Here’s the full exchange between Clinton and Stephanopoulos:

STEPHANOPOULOS: Let’s talk about the Second Amendment. As you know, Donald Trump has also been out on the stump talking about the Second Amendment and saying you want to abolish the Second Amendment. I know you reject that. But I want to ask you a specific question: Do you believe that an individual’s right to bear arms is a constitutional right – that it’s not linked to service in a militia?

CLINTON: I think that for most of our history there was a nuanced reading of the Second Amendment until the decision by the late Justice (Antonin) Scalia. And there was no argument until then that localities and states and the federal government had a right – as we do with every amendment – to impose reasonable regulations. So I believe we can have common-sense gun safety measures consistent with the Second Amendment. And, in fact, what I have proposed is supported by 90 percent of the American people and more than 75 percent of responsible gun owners. So that is exactly what I think is constitutionally permissible and, once again, you have Donald Trump just making outright fabrications, accusing me of something that is absolutely untrue. But I’m going to continue to speak out for comprehensive background checks; closing the gun show loophole; closing the online loophole; closing the so-called Charleston loophole; reversing the bill that Sen. (Bernie) Sanders voted for and I voted against, giving immunity from liability to gun makers and sellers. I think all of that can and should be done, and it is, in my view, consistent with the Constitution.

STEPHANOPOULOS: And, and the Heller decision also says there can be some restrictions. But that’s not what I asked. I said, do you believe their conclusion that the right to bear arms is a constitutional right?

CLINTON: If it is a constitutional right, then it – like every other constitutional right – is subject to reasonable regulations. And what people have done with that decision is to take it as far as they possible can and reject what has been our history from the very beginning of the republic, where some of the earliest laws that were passed were about firearms. So I think it’s important to recognize that reasonable people can say, as I do, responsible gun owners have a right. I have no objection to that. But the rest of the American public has a right to require certain kinds of regulatory, responsible actions to protect everyone else.

Clinton also defended the idea of a gun tax, but stopped short of endorsing a proposal she first embraced in 1993. Stephanopoulos pressed her on the issue and she demure yet again: “I’m not going to commit to any specific proposal,” she deferred. “That was in the context of health care. When you have mass shootings, you not only have the terrible deaths, you have people who are injured.” Clinton claims the issue came up during a weekend meeting with survivors of the December 2015 terrorist massacre in San Bernardino, CA. “What they talked to me about was, where do they get the financial support to deal with both the physical and the emotional trauma?” she said. “There are real costs that people incur because of the terrible gun violence epidemic. And we have to deal with it. And I’m going to be looking for ways to deal with it.” “I’m not committed to anything other than what I’ve said in this campaign,” she added, “but I do want people to ask themselves, can’t we do better than to have 33,000 people killed every year by guns and many thousands more injured? And I think we can.” Translation… yes, she is all for a gun tax. A massive and crippling one – 25% to be specific.

Via Twitchy:

Hillary’s stance on guns has never changed. She has always been against them.

From Americans for Tax Reform:

In passionate Senate testimony on Sept. 30, 1993, Clinton endorsed a new national 25 percent retail sales tax on guns. Americans for Tax Reform has released footage of Clinton’s visceral facial expressions which shows her nodding fiercely as she endorses the gun tax and as gun owners and dealers are described as “purveyors of violence.”

Clinton’s gun tax endorsement came in response to a question from then-Senator Bill Bradley (D-N.J.), who lamented the “accessibility that guns have in the country today.” He said to Hillary:

There are 276,000 gun dealers in America. There are more gun dealers in America than there are gas stations. That, to me, is a remarkable number and I think it is directly related to the accessibility that guns have in the country today. And if we simply put a 25 percent sales tax on the sale of a gun and raise the dealer’s fees from $30-$75 to $2,500, we would raise $600 million. That would be a tax directly on the purveyors of violence in terms of the sales of the means of violence.

Clinton gave her strong endorsement of the tax, saying, “I am all for that.” She concluded by saying, “I am speaking personally, but I feel very strongly about that.”

Hillary Clinton is one of the most anti-constitutional politicians that has ever disgraced America. Her own words and actions prove it. You should probably listen to more of what she doesn’t say, than what she does say and pay attention to how she nuances her answers. Words matter… the Constitution matters more. The Founding Fathers would have despised Hillary Clinton and would have considered her an enemy of the Republic.

#NeverDrunkUncleOrRobotGrandma – Shapiro’s Truth Hits Fox News Anchor’s Funny Bone

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton
Hat Tip: The New Americana

Funny

Ben Shapiro is wickedly smart and incredibly funny. Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro had Fox News host Leland Vittert laughing so hard he couldn’t remember what question he wanted to ask. It was epic. The whole conversation revolved around foreign policy and how Donald Trump would approach it vs. Hillary Clinton. Hilarity ensued.

Vittert asked Shapiro, “Who wins this fight?”:

Well, America loses. To call this election cycle a dumpster fire is far too cruel to dumpster fires, which at least destroy garbage rather than making them president. The problem here is that every attack that Hillary leverages against Trump on his lack of foreign policy knowledge, experience and basic common sense can be doubly true of her. He can basically reverse everything; she attacked him in that speech on his Russian policy; this is a lady who handed a reset button to the Russians and helped define a policy that handed Syrian control over to the Russians as well as Ukraine over to the Russians.

Every time she attacks Trump, with regard to, for example, his policy in the Middle East on ISIS, she helped create ISIS with her Iraq and Syria policy. When she says that he can’t be trusted with the nuclear button, first of all, her own husband apparently lost the nuclear football when he was President of the United States, according to Buzz Patterson. This is the same lady who set up a private server that made America’s national security secrets vulnerable, specifically for her own personal self-aggrandizement. The problem is that only Hillary can make Trump look like a legit candidate, and only Trump can make Hillary look like a legit candidate.

Then came the question that left them rolling in the aisles laughing… Vittert asked innocently, “Ben, I guess we can all keep dreaming that we are going to apply some substance and some real depth and probity to this discussion but it seems like it’s just not there; we have, to your point, a dumpster fire.”

Shapiro nailed it:

I think that what you’re looking at right now is Donald Trump is running to Hillary’s left on half of her foreign policy and she is in an uncomfortable position because the truth is that she was actually in some areas very hawkish and in some areas very dovish when she was Secretary of State. And now she is having to run to Trump’s right in a time when Bernie Sanders is running hard to her left. It puts her in a very difficult position on foreign policy, and he, no one expects him to even be mildly coherent on foreign policy; he’s so wildly all over the place; he’s throwing the kitchen sink at her.

As far as personality types, when you say there are two different types of personality, I think that’s kind to both of them; I think that Donald Trump has the personality of the drunk uncle who doesn’t drink and Hillary Clinton is more robotic than anybody in the history of presidential politics. You can almost hear the “beeps” and the boops” emanating from her mouth every time she talks.

Enjoy the video:

Sadly, in the end the lack of foreign policy competency isn’t funny and America loses. But Shapiro has an incredible wit and calls it like he sees it. Foreign policy may not dominate this election, but it should. It’s that serious and that deadly an issue.

Trump Will ‘Negotiate’ With The New Axis Of Evil – Has No Clue Concerning National Security

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Enemies

Donald Trump is simply terrifying when it comes to our enemies and national security. What we need is a leader who will deal from a position of strength, not negotiate from a meeting room. Trump may be a businessman, but when dealing with the New Axis of Evil, we need a warrior, not a deal maker. We’ve had enough of that with Barack Obama.

Trump’s positions on our adversaries goes well beyond clueless and naive… I believe he wants the presidency because he’s on a power kick and it will enrich him immeasurably, while bailing him out of financial difficulties. It’s the ultimate get-rich scheme and so many have fallen for it. Hillary Clinton would be a deadly disaster on the national security front as she would carry forth what Obama has started… reducing our military might even more, while taking kick-backs from the likes of China, Russia and Middle Eastern players. Trump may be just as bad. He claims he will rebuild the military, but he is aligning himself with strongman Vladimir Putin. That is a recipe for war. Either Putin will play Trump for a fool, or Trump would throw in with him on global expansionism and dictatorial mandates. Either way draws the US into a war, one that we probably cannot win in our weakened state.

You can see indicators all over the place concerning what lies ahead with our enemies under a Trump presidency. It doesn’t take a Cassandra to tell you what is coming.

Enemies1

North Korea’s DPRK Today has endorsed Donald Trump as a “far-sighted” and a “wise politician.” “The president that US citizens must vote for is not that dull Hillary but Trump, who spoke of holding direct conversation with North Korea,” the editorial said. This propaganda outlet is a mouthpiece for Kim Jong-un, the insane tyrannical leader of the Hermit Kingdom.

The article, first reported by the website nknews.org, went on to praise the April foreign policy speech that Trump gave in Washington, DC, where he threatened to withdraw US forces from South Korea if the government didn’t pay the United States for defense. That’s protection money and something that the mafia would do, not the US. Trump has also said he would meet directly with Kim Jong-un.

“Who knew that the slogan ‘Yankee Go Home’ would come true like this?” the editorial quipped. The NoKos are thrilled at the prospect of Donald Trump being president. What does that tell you? They are a front for the Chinese. Under a Trump presidency, South Korea would be weakened tremendously, leaving them open to conquest by the North Koreans. The NoKos would also gain access to international markets and go mainstream, regardless of their record of human rights violations and terrorism. As National Review put it: “From the mouth of the man who may be America’s next president, North Korea has reason to believe that Trump offers something that 60 years of war-footing preparation and hundreds of billions of dollars could not: A dynastic throne for the Kim family in perpetual dominion over the Korean peninsula.”

Enemies3

Regardless of Trump saying he will get tough with the Chinese, in the end he would negotiate with them and give them pretty much everything they want. All the while, they will keep building their military up in the South China Sea; they will keep stealing our military secrets; they will keep deluging us with 10,000 cyber attacks a day; and they will keep preparing for war… a war that will wipe us out and take down the US given half a chance.

Enemies4

Then there’s Russia. Trump earned high praise in December from Russian President Vladimir Putin, who called the GOP front-runner “talented” and “very colorful.” Putin had said he believed Trump wanted to “move to a more solid, deeper level of relations” between the United States and Russia. “How can Russia not welcome that? We welcome that,” Putin told ABC News in December. Trump responded, saying he believed he would “get along fine” with Putin if elected.

From a press conference with Vladimir Putin:

Russian President Vladimir Putin had kind words for his “stablemate” Donald Trump during an annual end-of-the-year Q&A session in Moscow.

“[Donald Trump is] a really brilliant and talented person, without any doubt,” [Vladimir] Putin told reporters, according to a translation by Interfax. “It’s not our job to judge his qualities, that’s a job for American voters, but he’s the absolute leader in the presidential race.”

The GOP frontrunner has been blunt about his plans for defrosting U.S. relations with Russia should he be elected president.

[…]

“He says he wants to move on to a new, more substantial relationship, a deeper relationship with Russia, how can we not welcome that?” he said. “Of course we welcome that.”

Trump constantly states his admiration for Vladimir Putin and vice versa. It’s an ongoing bromance that should give Americans nightmares. Trump respects the way Putin controls the media there with an iron fist. I know he would love to do the same here. Putin’s strongman power is very alluring to Trump… he dreams of standing on a balcony somewhere with his arms spread wide and with adoring masses at his feet. These are the daydreams of aspiring emperors, tyrants, czars… that is the fantasy of Donald Trump. But with that type of power always comes subjugation. Leaders such as Putin and Trump lure the masses in with promises of nationalism, strength, prosperity and revenge. In the end, what they deliver is repression, poverty, slavery and death.

More from Tom Rogan at The National Review:

Russia’s president, Vladimir Putin, is equally fond of Mr. Trump. In part, that’s because Trump frequently states his admiration of the Russian leader. And while some might say there is an almost sexual quality to Trump’s praise, it’s clear also that Donald is enamored by Vladimir. Again, it’s not hard to see why, for Putin represents Trump’s ideal of a leader. While Trump is infuriated by our free press, he sees Putin turn critics into corpses, then use them to deter future scrutiny. While Trump is disgusted by claims he’s an idiot, he sees Putin respond to similar descriptions by humiliating the West. While Trump wants to build a wall, he sees Putin building a half-mercantilist/half–Iron Curtain system of Russian imperialism. While Trump is astounded by those who reject his personality cult, he sees Putin broadcast global messages from his own mind’s eye.

Trump thinks the weak are losers. He’s willing to negotiate away what he considers weak, small and insignificant allies in favor of an alliance with a strong leader such as Putin. Trump is the very definition of a useful idiot and the communists would never let that go to waste. Through the arrogance and narcissism of Trump, Putin looks to control the US for his purposes and plans globally. If you thought Barack Obama was flexible, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

Enemies2

Iran, who is in league with both China and Russia, is also negotiable according to Trump.

From CBS News:

“If we have to wait until the next president is sworn in to revisit this nuclear weapons agreement, then the next president better be someone who knows how to negotiate,” Trump wrote in an editorial published on the USA Today website.

“When I am elected president, I will renegotiate with Iran — right after I enable the immediate release of our American prisoners and ask Congress to impose new sanctions that stop Iran from having the ability to sponsor terrorism around the world,” the GOP frontrunner continued. “In fact, if I am elected, I am sure the prisoners will be released before my taking office.”

Notice how Trump says ‘negotiate’ and does not address negating the Iran deal. He intends to honor it. Negotiating with those who intend to use and destroy you does not work. They will lie and say whatever as they ready their military to take you out. What we need is a leader like Reagan, who built up the military and then spoke with our enemies, making it clear that if they stepped out of bounds, not only were we prepared to take them on, we would actually do it. Trump has no clue what the military or war entails.

Under a Trump presidency, those such as Pakistan and Middle Eastern countries would feel they have a free pass on terrorism and could ‘negotiate’ just about anything with Trump. Money would flow and lies would be told. Trump talks tough on ISIS, but he has no idea how to go about a conflict with them and how to win it. He claims he will have the most brilliant military minds around him, but so far, there are very few. In fact, the most knowledgeable in the military don’t want anything to do with Trump because they see the catastrophe that is looming. He has no concrete plans or policies. They simply don’t know what he will do and they find that even more worrisome than knowing what Hillary would do.

I believe that Trump will win the presidency. If he does, we are electing a megalomaniac and a pathological liar. We are ushering in a man who has been embroiled in 3500 lawsuits over the last 30 years. He’s a man who could not pass a security background check if his life depended on it – not that he would ever allow it. He has flip-flopped and changed his stance on virtually every issue countless times. Now he calls it ‘moderation’. He is a man who is a womanizer, a thug and akin to South American dictators. He is a man who doesn’t understand the Constitution or our military in the least. What he does understand is power, wealth and control. He excels at propaganda and reality politics. We are in a new cold war with the New Axis of Evil – Russia, China and Iran and Trump doesn’t understand the threat we face at all. Trump will negotiate us right into a world wide conflict… one in which he has no clue how to fight, much less win. It’s the Donald Trump show and I fear we are all about to get fired.
