Donald Trump's decision to run for president excited me at first,
because his rhetoric appeared to reflect my sentiments, but it has
become just rhetoric without substance, revealing a crass little
man of small character and immaturity.
Like a child, when things seem to go against him, he threatens to
sue, or break his pledge not to run as a third party candidate,
because his opponents are mean to him.
This blackmailing tactic shows he is his own man and neither a
republican nor conservative, using these designations only to
further his ambitions.
His money guarantees quid pro quos to use any means to get his
way, like eminent domain at the expense of others. His privileged
up bringing turned him into a spoiled brat.
If the last ones standing in either party are Donald Trump and
Hillary Clinton, I will trip the lever for Trump. It will not be a vote
for him, but a vote against Hillary!
So, "grow up Donald and take your thumb out of your mouth
because you are getting some of the same of what you've been
dishing out!" "We all know how wonderful you are, because you
told us so many, many times!"

This Video is a great animated short explaining how socialism sounds great in theory, but always fails in practice.
“Socialism requires the intervention and control of the marketplace by an overwhelmingly powerful centralized government. It penalizes high achievers, rewards laziness, and stifles choice”.
In addition, Sir Winston Churchill chimed in with his definition, it went like this:
“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery”.
Do those definitions ring true when trying to explain the candidacies of Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders?

IF Obama gives Hillary a pass . . . .
Can you just imagine if Obama & his administration full of anti-Israel, anti-American, anti-Christian, anti-Jewish radical Muslim insurgents; Constitution-hating DOJ & Attorney General, bound & gagged CIA, DHS, NSA & FBI were to give the corrupt-lying-incompetent Hillary a pass ?
And, can you imagine the She-Clinton with her adviser/Svengali, Huma Mahmood Abedin, always whispering into her ear plus Huma’s vile & disgusting hubby Anthony Weiner hanging out in the White House plus, her family full of Muslim Brotherhood & Muslim Sisterhood leaders who are dedicated to establishing Shariah law to replace our most Sacred Constitution, while working all the angles toward the total domination of radical Islam to replace our form of government that was inspired by G-D and created by the Founding Fathers? Can you just imagine that entire bunch hanging out in the White House, 24/7 ? The thought is revolting.
What chance would this nation, the free-enterprise system, our Liberty or our individual freedoms have of surviving six months? Are you ready for that? C’mon now, what part of ‘nada’ don’t you understand?
Of course if HagHill loses the Democrat nomination, we’ll have the antique Marxist, the LooneyTunes Socialist-Communist Bernie Sanders to assure us a third term of enjoying the many benefits of Obama-nation.
Can you think of any better reasons to vote Republican?

For the past 25 years, Hillary Clinton (and her husband Bill) have avoided being held accountable for the various “crimes” that they have committed, in their blatant attempts at gaining wealth and power, because it seemed that they have been coated with “Teflon”. Most everything was hushed up, mainly by the media and flunky's in the Democrat Party, as they went merrily on their way to amassing power and wealth along the way.
But, it seems like the “chickens are coming home to roost” now. Remember when we were kids and reading comic books, and came across one about “Superman”? Well, we all knew that he was indestructible except when he was confronted by a piece of “Kryptonite”, held by an adversary which rendered him a mortal person. So it might be with Hillary Clinton. All the parsing of words and obfuscation over the years, by the Clinton's, and getting a pass, might finally have caught up with Hillary in the form of that unauthorized private e-mail server that she used as Secretary of State, which many, in the know, have claimed that she might have compromised our national security by her use of that unauthorized e-mail server.
At present, there is a full-scale FBI investigation (contrary to what Obama spokesman Josh Earnest has to say) of the use of that private e-mail server that she used during the 4 years that she served as Secretary of State. Even though she has stated, on numerous occasions, that she did nothing wrong, she violated the protocols of the State Department by not using a government authorized e-mail server instead of a private account located in her basement in Chappaqua and in some closet in Colorado.
In addition, the FBI is also looking into her actions and activities, as Secretary of State, into her decisions that she made with countries and foreign individuals who were big donors to the Clinton Foundation. They want to see if there was any “quid pro quo's” as a result of those decisions for the benefit of the Clinton Foundation. The word on the street is that the FBI has ample evidence to recommend that the Justice Department bring the evidence that they have gathered (by over 100 FBI agents) before a federal grand jury for possible prosecution. It is expected that this investigation will be wrapped up within a month or two or sooner.
The big obstacle to bringing her to justice is the person residing in the White House, Barack Hussein Obama, and the Democrat Party itself. President Obama oversees the Justice Department, and with his appointments over the past 7 years, he has been accused of politicizing the Justice Department like no other administration in recent memory. If Obama does not give the go-ahead to prosecute to his Attorney-General, Loretta Lynch, I predict that all hell will break loose and mass resignations within the FBI will take place. Stay tuned to see what happens. It would be a miscarriage of justice to have prosecuted Gen. David Petraeus for doing less than half of what Hillary has done, and not to prosecute Hillary. There should not be two sets of rules, one for the Clinton's and one for the rest of us schlumps.
Yes, those Hillary e-mails might just be her “Kryptonite”, finally.

If I was to rate Barack Obama's presidency, I will say he has been
one of the most successful presidents our country has ever had,
because he is achieving almost everything he set out to do.
His ideological theme was to create parity between all Americans.
There are signs his efforts are working because, instead of the needy
rising to a higher level, the successful are being brought down to
their level. That's quite an equalizer, isn't it? Also, his PC policies to
suppress white supremacy has given rise to black racism to counter
Anticipating he would do something to lower American exceptionalism,
thus easing the conscience of the world's lackadaisical socialistic ways
that have created chaos and strife, the Nobel Prize committee gave him
a medal for peace, because he promised to turn the war around in the
middle east into diplomacy and bring our troops back home, to put a
feather in his legacy, not anticipating it will leave the area more chaotic
and vulnerable for the tyrants, who he and the United Nation refuses to
identify as terrorists.
His work for peace continues by inaction and meager lip service in
support for those involved in opposing and fighting ISIS and other
belligerent violators of the sovereignty of other nations.
Although his manipulative agendas have been successful with much of
media's support, his governance has been wrong more times than any
other president in our country's history.
This honored man of peace and his demagoguery who is responsible for
the death and displacement of hundreds of thousands of innocent people
and separated families, is sheltered from this truth by dishonest journalism.
His disproportionate sympathy toward Islam and leftist parental influential
upbringing, as evidenced in his youth, has been at the expense of
Judeo-Christian tenet. The foundation of our Constitution.
There have been many successful leaders in the past, that when scrutinized,
are now scorned today for their accomplishment. The glory for their country
diminished forever. Let us hope it is not too late to reverse the damage this
incompetent individual is creating.

We all know that Bernie Sanders is an avowed Socialist, but what about Hillary Clinton and Martin O,Malley? Both Hillary and Martin say they are “Progressives” thereby trying to sanitize what they really are, “Socialists”.
First off, all three of the Democrat candidates are in favor of “income redistribution”, which is right out of the Karl Marx playbook. They all are in favor of government control of our health care, of increasing the government bureaucracy, and increasing government regulation of business and our personal lives - all tenets of the Marxist/Socialist philosophy. In fact, over 70 members of Congress (including Bernie Sanders) are members of the organization called the “Democratic Socialists of America”. Most all the members of the Congressional Black Caucus are members of the DSA (Google up Democratic Socialists of America to see for yourself).
Besides the principle of “wealth distribution”, the Democrat candidates promote the idea that what is yours is not yours, it belongs to the government. According to President Obama, if you own a business “you didn't build that”, and all the Democrat candidates buy into Obama's statement. As an example, Hillary on June/29/2004, made the statement, “We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good”. Both Bernie Sanders and Martin O'Malley have made similar statements. That's Marxism/Socialism in practice.
Remember when, a few years ago, when Hillary said that it “takes a village” to raise a child, she was using that Marxist/Socialist principle of government intervention in the lives of its citizens, whether they wanted that interference or not. In a similar statement, Bernie Sanders said in 1969, “The revolution comes when.... a commune is started and people begin to trust each other”.
All three Democrat candidates are great enthusiasts for the “welfare state” by proposing expanding governments handouts to many of its citizens (mainly in hopes that those receiving the “freebies” will cast their votes for the Democrats). This all sounds benevolent and magnanimous, but by expanding the “nanny state” and spending trillions of dollars since 1965 on the “War on Poverty”, we have not put a sizable dent in poverty or of government subsistence. Today, almost 50% of the population receives some sort of government largesse. In fact, it has had the opposite effect of moving away from economic empowerment (a good thing) to economic enslavement and dependency (a bad thing). That is why some have designated the Democrat Party as the “fee stuff” party, and with good reason.
As stated before, the Democrats are running away from the term “socialist” (except of course, Bernie Sanders) because it has negative connotations in the minds of the public (the Democrats also seem to be trying to avoid the term liberal for similar reasons). Both Hillary Clinton and Martin O'Malley are calling themselves “Progressives”, which they feel is a much more positive term than Socialist. This is just a continuation of Obama's slogan of “Hope and Change, but for the American people, there is “no hope” and you're left with just change in your pocket. Winston Churchill once gave a definition of Socialism, he said, “Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery”. Leave it to Winston to put the truth into a wise and pithy statement.
We did not become the preeminent country of the world by espousing socialist principles, we became #1 by our founders giving us a democratic republic on a foundation of free enterprise capitalism, and it has served us well for over 225 years.
Don't let these Democrat “snake oil” Democrat salesmen (candidates) try to convince you that transforming our system into the United States of Europe, is the right thing to do, in fact, you could say that there isn't a “Dimes worth of difference” between any of the Democrat candidates. They do not deserve your vote.

Hillary Robbem Clinton
No more unfit misfit has ever run for the Office of the President of the United States, than Hillary Robbem Clinton.
We’ve had a few more than our share of unfit misfits that have actually been seated in the Oval Office, thanks to a majority of misguided voters. Woodrow Wilson, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama jump to mind, immediately. (*Pause to recover*)
I see that Madelyn NotSo Bright and Dick Durbin are supporting Hag Hillary’s ill-conceived run for the candidacy of the Delusional Dumbshit Democraps. That’s sufficient information for me to prove my point.
Any one of the stage-full of Republican candidates who are currently trying to tear themselves to shreds, would be quantum leaps better than Hillary. Try and try again as they might, to portray ‘Hag Hill’ as possessing a rich record of accomplishment in public service, her loyal slugs have been unable to unearth and document even one genuine, positive, legitimate accomplishment, Pretty sad, huh?
What manner of fools who proudly tag themselves as ‘Progessives’, does it take to rally ‘round a proven, untrustworthy liar who hasn’t a clue how to conduct herself in an interview, much less in public office? The only box she can check is that she thinks she is deserving because she’s been around Washington, D.C. for so long. If that’s a legitimate qualifier, then the Old Post Office building on Pennsylvania Avenue is equally, if not more deserving as a presidential candidate.MORT KUFF © 2-7-2016
Pardon my bragging a bit, however . . . .
. . . it isn’t every day that I can point to the cover of a national publication and say, “Hey, look at my stuff.”
“ALLEGRO” is the monthly publication for members of AFM Local 802 NYC Musicians Union. The Feb1016 edition is dedicated to African-American History Month and my drawing of Duke Ellington graces the cover. Inside, there is a 2-page spread of several more of my drawings and my article recounting my recollections of seeing & listening to the ‘Duke’, in person.
To access this on the internet, here’s the website address:

Whatever candidate you are supporting, the main thrust of that support should be - will that candidate support nominees for the Supreme Court who will interpret the law (as written in the Constitution), and not make the law?
Coming up during the next administration will be 3 or possibly 4 openings to fill vacancies on the Supreme Court. If you elect, as president, someone who will appoint activist judges, who will tend to have a “progressive” interpretation of the Constitution, then you can expect to see a wholesale change to our society as we know it.
The Supreme Court, as it is currently made up, is broken into two groups - half liberal and half conservative, with Justice Anthony Kennedy being the swing vote. Although, from recent decisions of the Supreme Court, some supposedly “conservative” judges like Chief Justice John Roberts, have voted for policies that tended to fall on the radical left (ex: Obamacare decision calling “fees” a tax). Chief Justice Roberts was a George W. Bush appointee who was considered a conservative nominee when confirmed, but seemed to have strayed from that designation when he ruled on the Obamacare question. That decision went against the prevailing opinion of legal constitutional scholars and the citizens at large.
If the Democrats retain the White House, you can expect potential nominees to make decisions, if confirmed, who will promote the far-left agenda as personified by the four liberal judges now sitting on the Supreme Court (i.e. Kagan, Breyer, Sotomayor, and Ginsberg). That will give them the majority on the court.
Most all Republican candidates have promised that they will appoint and support Supreme Court nominees who will interpret the Constitution and who will not try to circumvent it by “legislating” from the bench. That must be taken into consideration when determining who you will vote for in November 2016. It is that cut and dry.
So, forget all the petty attacks by the candidates on each other, and try to visualize what our country will become if we have more (a majority) progressive (a/k/a liberal, Democrat) judges confirmed to the Supreme Court? Our society will be turned on its head, and not for the better.
This admonition goes for those who said they will not vote if their candidate does not get the Republican Party nomination. Doing that would be like cutting off your nose to spite your face. If that mind set prevails, and a Democrat is elected, you, who will sit out the election, will have no one to blame but yourselves if the prevailing opinion of the Supreme Court becomes a majority liberal court.
Elections do have consequences, so make it your mind to support who the Republicans, through the democratic process, choose as their nominee. Our country is at stake, so don't blow it by harboring petty differences and not getting out to vote.
