The Lovely Sue and I just returned from a little road trip, 2252 miles not counting the occasional detour. She has family in Kansas, so we headed that way first, then over to Colorado, and down to New Mexico. We were half way through on election day. It was an excellent reminder that no matter who won, the world would go on spinning. And what a beautiful world it is! Just look at a few of the photos we took along the way…
There are just too many Wikileaks emails. Because the volume is overwhelming, many of us have chosen to ignore them. And because the corrupt news media is directly implicated by so many of the emails, you won’t see much coverage on television or in the papers. Fortunately, over on Reddit they’ve been working hard to organize the emails released by Wikileaks into format we can internalize pretty easily. Now someone who calls himself (or herself) “LegendaryAmerican” has published the top 100 most damning emails so you can read them for yourself and see for yourself what we’re dealing with. If you’re an American, and you believe no one should be above the law, you owe it to yourself and to your country to click here and do some reading before you vote.
If you don’t have time for that, here are just 25 of the topics discussed by Clinton staffers, and you can read their emails for yourself at that link above:
- Hillary Clinton dreams of completely “open borders”
- Hillary Clinton received money from and supported nations that she KNEW funded ISIS and terrorists
- Admitting they pay people to incite violence and unrest at Trump rallies
- Hillary’s campaign wants “unaware” and “compliant” citizens
- Top Hillary aides mock Catholics for their faith
- Hillary deleted her incriminating emails. State covered it up. Asked about using White House executive privilege to hide from Congress.
- Bribery: King of Morocco gave Clinton Foundation $12 million for a meeting with Hillary, 6 months later Morocco gets weapons
- State Department tried to bribe FBI to un-classify Clinton emails (FBI docs)
- Hillary caught on tape talking about rigging the Palestine election (audio)
- Latinos are “needy”. Latino outreach is “taco bowl engagement”
- Clinton campaign was in direct communication with DOJ regarding Hillary’s investigation
- Bill Clinton receives $1 million “birthday gift” from ISIS-funding Qatar while Hillary was SoS, Qatar receives arms flow increases of 1,482%
- Hillary campaign wishes shooters in news stories were white
- Rigging the primaries against Bernie Sanders (DNC favored Hillary)
- Clinton Foundation schemed with Big Pharma: keep the price of AIDS drugs high in America and NO to cheaper generic versions
- Democrats created fake Trump “grope under the meeting table” Craigslist employment ad in May 2016
- Hillary’s camp excited about a black teen’s murder (to help her agenda)
- Rigging media polls through oversampling
- “Bill Clinton Inc.” How millions of dollars were raised for the Clintons. Blurred lines between personal and Foundation money
- Admitting terrorists will infiltrate the Syrian refugee program
- List of reporters that Hillary wined and dined, including biggest journalists and pundits of CNN, ABC, NBC, MSNBC, NY Times, and a lot more. Off the record.
- Democrats using American lobbyists to money launder foreign donations illegally
- Racist remarks about Blacks and Muslims
- Hillary’s poor health (collapsing, memory loss, drug research)
- Hillary’s staff admitting she is “tainted” and “really vulnerable” on corruption and bribery
Yesterday I voted for Donald Trump.
I understand and agree with many of the arguments against him, and people who vote for Clinton will get no argument from me. Frankly, there’s not much to argue about. Certainly not Trump’s positions on the issues, which had very little to do with my choice because I don’t trust him to keep his promises any more than I trust Clinton. Which is to say, not at all. But after lots of thought, this was a surprisingly easy decision.
Here are five reasons why:
- When your choice is between two corrupt candidates, choose the one the media hates most. The mainstream media actively supports Clinton, but does their best to keep Trump under a microscope at all times. That means he’s much less likely to get away with anything, whereas she would have carte blanche to screw things up without a peep from anyone.
- Trump deserves to be on the ballot; Clinton doesn’t. The people nominated Trump fair and square. Clinton’s pals at the DNC stole her nomination from Sanders with dirty tricks.
- We must stop doing the same things over and over and expecting different results. Clinton represents more of the same, which isn’t working (to say the least). At least Trump is all about trying something new even if some of his ideas are whacky.
- America is not a monarchy. It felt wrong when the second Bush was nominated, as if the Washington elites had crowned his family as royalty and rammed him down our throats. It feels like that with this second Clinton, too.
- No one should be above the law. When Bill Clinton had that private chat on the jet with the US Attorney General followed quickly by the Department of Justice and the FBI deciding not to prosecute, Clinton lost me forever. If any other government employee had kept those emails on a server in a bathroom linen closet, they would be facing prison time. But Clinton does it and gets elected President? Not if I can help it.
All the way home from the pooling place I kept thinking it would have been nice to vote for someone I believe will be a good President. But who knows, maybe Trump will surprise me by governing well. Miracles do happen. But unless the Lord God Almighty intervenes, all I know is my hopes and expectations will be very low on November 9, no matter who’s elected.
Look at this photo of young Arek Trenholm. Confined to a wheelchair because he has spina bifida, Arek is using his arms to “stand” at a parade while the honor guard passes by with the American flag.
In the comments at his uncle’s Facebook page some people call him a patriot.
I say he’s just a young man who has been taught by heavy trials (and probably by good parents) to appreciate his blessings and to say so with a heartfelt “thank you.”
Way to go, Arek.
At 16 years of age, you’re already wiser and more mature than several famous adults I could mention.
UPDATE (11/11/2016): A veteran who works for a company that builds “standing wheelchairs” saw this story and donated one of the company’s chairs to Arek. To see a video of Arek using his new chair for the first time, click here.
