OH MY GOODNESS…TRUMP SAID P*SSY ELEVEN YEARS AGO! “Such a man is not fit to be president.” Bernie Marcus, founder of Home Depot, articulated the perfect response: “Let’s grow up! What does that have to do with what’s happening today?” And what about all of the horrible things Hillary Clinton has said over the years? WELL ACTUALLY THAT DOESN’T COUNT because we have reached the point where Democratic candidates get a free pass.
I am beginning to feel that we live in a pre-1990 communist dictatorship where there is only one political party and the press is owned by the government. Unless you happened to tune into Fox News, you would never know that Donald Trump destroyed Clinton in Sunday’s debate. A number of media outlets described Secretary Clinton as “poised” and “in control.” That is not the Clinton I observed on Sunday. Her rambling dialogue and sardonic smile suggested that she was completely overwhelmed by Donald’s onslaught. When Clinton is put on the spot, she disintegrates into a babbling stream of doubletalk that in this case—for some inexplicable reason—included Abraham Lincoln. Honest Abe must be turning over in his grave.
CLINTON CANNOT WIN ON THE ISSUES. Her only strategy is to smear Trump in any way she can. Her stand on three issues in particular—the economy, national security, and political ideology—should convince us that she is unfit for public office.
Clinton wants to continue the anti-business economic policies of the Obama administration that have brought the country to its knees. More regulations and increased government control over the private sector. Plus she wants to raise taxes in order to pay for all the free stuff that we can’t afford. “Make the rich pay their fair share,” she screams. Just like Obama, she fails to understand that business, not government, creates jobs and brings prosperity. The “rich” people she demonizes are the ones who create jobs and economic growth.
For national security policy, she wants to open the borders, offer amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, and admit untold thousands of Stone Age refugees from the Middle East, most of whom accept neither our laws nor our values. In other words, she wants to be the Angela Merkel of the USA. Even Merkel has repudiated her own open border decision that, as we speak, is tearing Germany apart. The same thing can happen here. Add to that Clinton’s obvious disdain for classified information and you have a security disaster.
But the worst part of Clinton’s platform is her ideology, stemming directly from Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals,” that will perpetuate Obama’s assault on the Constitution. By appointing progressive justices to the Supreme Court, Clinton will guarantee the dissolution of the First and Second Amendments. With total disregard for freedom of speech and with unrestricted immigration, we can say goodbye to the two-party system and welcome totalitarian rule.
Oh, but wait a minute. None of that counts because Trump made some off-color remarks eleven years ago when he thought the microphones were turned off. HAVE WE LOST OUR MINDS?
