POOR SPOILED ELITISTS ENRAGED!

My friend Ron Jenkins shared this message with Campaign glass pictures I deleted to not enrage these poor mistreated merchants of manufactured news. Poor babies have to suffer the pain of flying first class on the airlines as Tillerson has decided to save the tax payers some money. What a refreshing new approach to Washington’s waste filled life of the “Rich and Famous”. If you feel sorry for these VIP’s don’t waste my time telling me.

The Story

A Reuters filing en route to Asia showcases the bitterness, anger and seething rage of U.S. journalists who have been forced to fly First-Class Commercial to cover Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s Asia trip.

State Department correspondents are used to the exclusive wide-body private charters of the U.S. federal government’s airline fleet.  Previous heads of the Department of State have flown aboard Air Force 3.  Normally a Boeing 757.  At the very worst Air Force 3 would be a C17 Globemaster.

However, T-Rex is taking a smaller jet to Asia and only one journalist accompanies him.  To make matters exponentially worse, T-Rex did not select a journalist from the corporate stable of the refined and pedigreed media elites.

We can only imagine how Andrea Mitchell must be seething at having to take simple first-class commercial flight accommodations with ordinary people.  The scope of the almost unimaginable horror she has to face will soon pour from her pursed and vengeful lips.  We can predict a retaliatory report soon from the wrath of the ignored elitist within NBC.  This shall be, as they say, epic.

Secretary Tillerson has rebuked customs and norms.  The traveling correspondents will have to pass through customs and passport checks as if they are ordinary travelers.  There is a very real possibility no-one will recognize them or care diligently for their very individual and specific needs.

Can you imagine Mrs. Alan Greenspan flying all the way to Asia from the Eastern Seaboard and having to do that on a commercial flight?  My God, have we really dropped our standards of decency that far…

Air Force 3 – Not being used by T-Rex

Oh yeah, the pontificating journalist elites are pi**ed off.   After traveling with every possible indulgence aboard exclusive State Department accommodations with Secretary Clinton and Secretary Kerry, you cannot even fathom how angry they are right now without private dining, DoS chefs, shaved chocolates and Cristal mimosas.

None of this is me joking.  This bunch of snobs having to fly commercial is unheard of.

They are ready to tear into Secretary Tillerson in every single filed report.  Just watch what you see on TV:

(Reuters) U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is traveling to Asia this week accompanied by only one reporter, a White House correspondent from the Independent Journal Review (IJR), a digital news outlet founded in 2012 by former Republican political operatives.

The IJR said in a statement late Tuesday the State Department last week offered one of its reporters, Erin McPike, a place aboard the Secretary’s aircraft on his trip this week to Asia.

The State Department had previously told reporters covering Tillerson’s trip to South Korea, Japan, and China that he would not be taking reporters on his plane and that they would have to fly commercially, breaking with decades of precedent stretching back to Henry Kissinger.

Major news organizations complained, among them the BBC, CNN, New York Times, Washington Post and Reuters.

The State Department Correspondents Association, which represents reporters who cover U.S. diplomacy, said in a statement that it was “disappointed” Tillerson chose to travel to Asia without a full contingent of media “or even a pool reporter”.

“After saying it was unable to accommodate press on the Secretary’s plane to Asia due to space and budget constraints, the State Department offered a unilateral seat to one reporter,” the statement said.

“Several of our members have traveled commercially to meet Secretary Tillerson on the ground in Asia. We expect that the diplomatic press corps will be afforded access to Secretary Tillerson equal to that given to the reporter on the plane.”

A spokesman for IJR, Matt Manda, did not immediately respond to a request for comment on whether McPike would file pool reports to colleagues, or whether IJR had any comment on the SDCA’s statement.

For decades, secretaries of state have nearly always invited media to travel with them. In rare cases, particularly late in a secretary’s tenure, some outlets have declined the invitations, such as for former Secretary John Kerry’s December 2016 trip to Saudi Arabia.

Republican secretaries of state Alexander Haig, George Shultz, James Baker, and Condoleezza Rice routinely took 10 or more journalists on their overseas trips, even to conflict zones such as Lebanon and Central America.

Up through Tuesday, just hours before Tillerson was scheduled to leave, the State Department declined to confirm whether there would be any reporters on Tillerson’s plane.

Acting State Department spokesman Mark Toner said in a phone briefing with reporters on Tuesday that the agency was considering “having a seat available” on his plane.

“We’ve been very clear, frankly, that this is a smaller footprint all around, and this is the Secretary’s decision, to travel with a smaller footprint,” Toner said. “To some degree, it’s a cost-saving measure.”  (read more)

The rest of the article is Reuters tearing into IJR for having the audacity to accept a seat on the flight with T-Rex.   This is like High School mean girls taken to exponential levels of vitriol and hatred.

This is going to be ugly.  Very, very ugly.   ANON

OBAMA – FACT OR FICTION?

An example of government decision making.

Once upon a time there was a President who wanted to go play golf.

He called in his Weather Czar, VP Joe Biden, and asked when would be the next day he could be sure there would be no rain.

Biden assured him that there was absolutely no chance of rain for tomorrow. So the President and Reverend Al Sharpton departed early the next morning for a round of golf.

After they teed off they were riding and when they stopped before the next shot a farmer who was plowing with his mule, John K, in the adjacent field hollered and said, Mr. President you need to return immediately to the White house as we will shortly be having a torrential rain storm.

Obama responded in his usual caustic way, My VP and Weather Czar Joe Biden is the best forecaster in the world. He is extremely experienced, well-educated and paid a very high salary to give me advice. He gave me a very different forecast. I trust him so we will finish our round of golf

Before they finished the second hole the bottom fell out as torrential rain fell from the sky and Obama and Sharpton were totally soaked.

Their entire entourage, including the Secret Service, chuckled upon seeing them in such a drenched condition. Furious, Obama returned to the White House and fired Biden as his Weather Czar and told him to go hide out of his sight!

Then Obama summoned the farmer & offered him the prestigious & high paying role of his new Weather Czar.

The farmer said, “Mr. President, I do not know anything about weather forecasting. I obtain my information from my donkey, John K. If I see his ears drooping, it means, with 100% certainty that it will rain.”

So Obama hired John K, the donkey.

And thus began the practice of hiring asses to work in the Obama government & occupy its highest & most influential advisory positions. Now John K is Secretary of State and negotiating a treaty with Iran.

WASHINGTON WITCHCRAFT- PART TWO

How man people listened to Hillary Clinton dance around the fact that she violated federal law by using a personal E Mail account all the time she served as Secretary of State representing the United States of America. Remember she is the likely Democratic candidate for election in 2016 to be President of the United States. She is a lawyer, wife of William Jefferson Clinton who served eight years as President of the United States.

I have followed the history of her activity and politics from the time her esteemed husband served as Governor of the great State of Arkansas. Her short-lived position with the Department of Justice made great credits for he resume when she was fired.

What really blew me away in her interview was her response that she had no second thoughts because others had done this in the past. Now analyze that simple revelation, “others have done it.”

Looking at history “others” have committed fraud, others have lied, others have evaded income taxes, others have accepted unlawful foreign money, others have been dis-barred and lost their law license, others have pardoned convicted felons, others have been impeached by Congress, others have committed adultery, others have committed voter fraud and I feel sure this list could involve more illegal activities.  One of those others, Richard Nixon, actually resigned from office when he was caught red-handed stealing and hiding opponents records.

We all know that her husband should have resigned but Democrats can escape punishment in America. When you look at what the others have done, Bill Clinton has actually done most of the actions. In fact Hillary has already committed several of these “other”actions all by herself.

If anyone who believes one word the Clinton’s utter will be anything that helps anyone other than themselves they are morons.They perfected the art of lying to a level unprecedented until Obama elevated lying to a new plateau well beyond their comprehension.

The really sad statement she made while running for President against Obama was her specific statement that the Bush administration violated the same laws she violated later. If there was a picture next to the definition of the word “Hypocrite” in the dictionary it would be a picture of Bill and Hillary Clinton.

If Hillary is nominated by the Democrats they have scrapped the bottom of the barrel searching for a “leader”. The only Democratic Presidents in recent history that might be worse leaders than the Clinton’s would be Lyndon Johnson and Obama. They all make Nixon look like a saint. At least he had the gonads to resign.   

Politicians are no longer expected to obey the laws and far too many Americans really don’t care.  I do!

WASHINGTON WITCHCRAFT?

It amazes me how our current President, his entire horde of Czars, his communist advisers, the mainstream media and the entire Democratic Party believe that the majority of Americans are stupid. I will agree that those who voted for them are stupid but I can’t believe they are the majority of American voters. They have lied, covered up snafus, hidden written documents, misused their lawful power and are regulating us into bankruptcy with little or no resistance.

Well the “Wicked Witch of the West”, Hillary Clinton, has been caught with her panties in a knot for actually ignoring a federal law and committing a federal crime. Now we face several months of lies, smoke screens as she prepares to succeed our “Liar-in-Chief” as President.

Prepare yourself for a performance that will be so filled with drama it would win an Academy Award. If she is elected the Hollywood loons will probable give her that award after serving her eight years as President? All she has to do is keep the women’s vote and the abortion zealots in the Republican Party will make sure to help her.

I have spent the day listening to and reading articles related to Hillary’s use of a private E mail service to conduct even top secret correspondence while she was Secretary of State. That alone is a revelation of how our government has become a secret society within itself.

The most ridiculous event in the news today was that the White House counsel’s office was not aware at the time Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State that she relied solely on personal email to correspond. They admitted it was the congressional investigation into the Benghazi attack that alerted them of the crime. If that is true, why did the White House and Eric Holder’s Justice Department ignore the crime that was exposed over a year ago? Even the stupid and women know the answer, “Politics as Usual.”

Another bothersome action I read was that the State Department turned over some of her messages in connection with the Benghazi probe after she left office. They knew a year ago she had ignored federal law when the White House counsel’s office asked the State department to ensure that her email records were properly archived, according to the article I read.

Clinton announced in a late-night tweet yesterday that she wants her emails released. She asked the State Department to vet the 55,000-plus pages she handed over, leaving the diplomatic agency with the intensely politicized task of determining which can be made public. Why can’t they be released to Congress committees who have security clearance? The answer, “Politics as Usual.”

John Kerry told reporters today during a trip to Saudi Arabia that the State Department will move immediately to review the emails but cautioned it will take time. “We will undertake this task as rapidly as possible in order to make sure that we are dealing with the sheer volume in a responsible way,” Kerry said. The reason for any delay is “Politics as Usual.”

Even though they suspected something was being hidden, the committee, chaired by Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., announced Wednesday that it has issued a subpoena to Clinton directly for all of her communications relating to Libya, including emails from her personal server, texts, attachments and pictures. If there is nothing confidential in her E mails why do they have to be screened by Kerry and why can’t Hillary give them direct access?

I just read in the Federalist that Hillary Clinton and her allies may be claiming that her private e-mail system is no big deal. “Hillary’s State Department actually forced the 2012 resignation of the U.S. ambassador to Kenya in part for setting up an unsanctioned private e-mail system. According to a 2012 report from the State Department’s inspector general, former U.S. ambassador to Kenya Scott Gration set up a private e-mail system for his office in 2011”. “Politics as Usual?”

Watching what happens will be interesting. Look for excuses that will put tears in the eyes of every American female voter both dead and alive. They have enough time to make it look like discrimination against women. We have women who are more than qualified than our last several Presidents and are capable of leading America back on a Constitutional path. It is time to give a woman a chance to prove me right but not Hillary Clinton. At least find a woman who is truthful, honest, ethical, and loves America as much as I do from either political party.

The Clintons have so many skeletons buried from the Ozark’s to the Adirondack Mountains that it will be a field day to watch NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN and PBS manipulate the facts to get Hillary elected in 2016.

Honesty, truth, ethics and true love for America are no longer a requirement for the media or politicians. 

“WASHINGTON WITCHCRAFT IS POLITICS AS USUAL.”

ALL POLITICIANS = ELECTED WELFARE!

Politics over my 84 years has digressed from watching the United States lead the world into the technological era to watching all political actions today looking like a Three Stooges comedy. We have a President who believes he is the second coming of Mohammad. We have an Attorney General who believes we still have slavery. We have a Secretary of State who is a traitor. We have a departing Senate Majority Leader who is so possessed with power he is a multi-millionaire and never held a real job in his life. We have Democrats that are afraid to call themselves Socialists and the only objectives they have is to get re-elected by the poor people that they covertly manage to keep poor.

Moving to the Republicans, we find another leaderless abyss in a political party that is its own worst enemy. They are on the threshold of increased power in 2015 but they will screw it up and lose the Presidential election again in 2016. The current House of Representatives, with Republican power but leaderless, has let President Obama make them look like the “House of Fools” for two years. They are so afraid of the President they can’t even agree with each other.

The next two years will be the same old routine, Obama will do whatever he desires and Boehner will lick his boots and the new Republican Senate leadership will fold like a deck of cards. The only positive Senate action will be to hopefully stop the appointment of liberal political hack lawyers to the Federal Judgeships and possibly the Supreme Court. I use the word “hopefully” as Obama is a “Master of Political Skull Drudgery’. It would not surprise me to see him overturn the law that limits Presidents to two terms of office and watch the Republicans run and hide in the closet. Losing the power of the Senate will slow down Obama’s real objective of making the United States a Socialists Democracy rather than a Republic. He needs a third term and control of both halves of Congress to complete his mission.

I understand the poor people who have lived off of the government all of their lives and support of the Democrats who designed their welfare trap. Without jobs people get hungry and after being able to survive without working who would want a job. If they want more just take it away from those who want to work. Recent news is a perfect example, just protest, rob, loot and destroy as the government suggested and Obama and Holder will not prosecute.

I also understand that if Obama and the Democrats can’t get immunity for the Hispanics to work and pay taxes they will eventually run out of welfare money. When they have completed their mission to take all of the savings from those who worked for a living another dilemma will occur. The life-long lazy and those faking disabilities will have to go back to work to eat. If that happens they will never vote for a Democrat again. What they have overlooked is more and more Hispanics have been getting educated and now have some leaders who will lead them into power and conservative principles.

Eric Holder believes that African-Americans deserve to live off of Caucasians because they  bought them as slaves over 150 years ago. He and others ignore the fact that other Africans sold them to Americans. Inciting any American to steal, threat or kill another American should get Obama, Holder, Jackson and Sharpton in prison but it will never happen. Good old Al Sharpton owes the IRS millions in back taxes that would get you and me in prison. All it gets him is on MSNBC every day and continued invitations to sit and hate whites with Obama in the White House.

Let me end this chapter of my Conservative Views returning to my headline, “All Politicians = Elected Welfare. Once elected they are guaranteed a pension ten times greater than the average American. The longer they can suck off the Government teat the more they can receive in benefits. They don’t have to deal with Obamacare. They are immune from IRS scrutiny. They work less than half the time we have to work. Vacations and useless trips are made first class, not in the back of the bus or plane. Some have done better like Harry Reid who lives in splendor in a $4,000 a week massive hotel suite.

One major difference is their welfare checks and privileges are far more comfortable than yours or mine. When you vote next time remember who you are enriching with wealth and power. I hope and pray that a real leader stands up soon to steer the United States back on a conservative path and unite instead of dividing Americans.

This old veteran loves this country and my eyes still get wet when I see our flag and hear the Star Spangled Banner. We can improve our lives again if enough of us want to.

Do you want to? I do.           C Brewer

PRESINDENTIAL UNFAIRNESS.

I received this message from my great friend Ron Jenkins who is as deeply concerned about America as I am. I asked his permission to post this unedited and Ron agreed. I hope you share this with your friends if you are as concerned as Ron and myself.  Today is a double header with two postings.    C Brewer

Clyde,

There are so many issues that our elected leader has failed to act on or has acted in contravention of the best interests of the American people.  His actions seem totally selfish and for the benefit of his family or himself, rather than the millions of legal American citizens and that’s not fair!

He has appointed a second ineffective Secretary of State, Mr. Kerry, following the debacle of Mrs. Clinton.

On International Issues President Obama has been ineffective in confronting the Russian Premier, Mr. Putin, over the latter’s illegal incursion into the Ukraine and the shooting down of a Malaysian airliner.

Neither the president nor Mr. Kerry have been able to garner international support for further sanctions on Iran and their nuclear energy development program. 

He is so obsessed with “Green Energy” initiatives that he has given “carte blanche” to the commercial juggernaut of the Chinese economy, to progress, without any concern for the damage their industrial activity is doing to the environment. 

He has failed to keep sufficient residual forces, in both Iraq and Afghanistan, to backstop their cowardly military.

There are more disgusting failures relating to his domestic policies.  First and foremost is his failure to lead. 

Failure to provide the leadership to the US Senate Majority Leader, Mr. Harry Reid, to stop blocking debate and the passage of legislation necessary for the furtherance of US governmental operations.

Failure to replace the US Attorney General, Mr. Eric Holder, for his recalcitrance and refusal to comply with US Congressional requests, regarding the “gun running” fiasco characterized as the “fast and furious” scandal, failure to prosecute Black Panther members for voter intimidation during the 2008 federal election, failure to prosecute IRS managers for illegally targeting political action groups and using the power of a governmental agency to coerce and intimidate the American public. 

Failure to promote job creation projects like the “Keystone Pipeline Project” in favor of criminal enterprises or crony capitalization projects such as Solyndra energy. 

Failure to react in a timely manner in such instances as the Osama Bin Laden assassination, the Captain Philips hostage situation, and the murder of our Ambassador in Benghazi. 

Failure to enforce US Immigration Law, and release of thousands of illegal aliens from prison without advising local law enforcement of the action.

Failure to remain impartial in legal cases of national interest, i.e., Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown.

Failure to recognize and publicize the causes of social unrest especially in minority communities due to the breakdown of the family unit. Children born out of wedlock, through the unrestrained impregnation of young black women by irresponsible black men.  

Failure to hold responsible the incompetent managers he has appointed to his administration. 

Barack Hussein Obama is the most incompetent Chief Executive to ever hold the office of POTUS and that is unfair to me.

OBAMA – LOOKING FOR A BUS TO THROW HILLARY UNDER!

I would bet the Clinton’s are Furious. This will prove he is a racist as he saved his “Black” Communist Attorney General several times already. It would be nice to see what promises are made to Hillary. A seat on the Supreme Court is the likely reward for self destruction. If she did run for  President in 2016 it could be remembered by too many people, even Democrats. They know they can buy enough Senate votes to confirm her as they only need 51 votes. Although if Obama is re-elected the Democrats will have proven they can buy enough votes to get anyone elected in the future. Performance is measured on how much they can steal from the public to buy votes like the way they took General Motors away from the shareholders and divided up the loot between the Treasury and the unions. They have 100% of the union,votes, 99% of the African American votes, 80% of the alien voters, over 50% of the Catholic and Jewish votes, 75% of the womens votes and 100% of those on welfare and the dead voters. 

It sounds like Obama is ready to let Secretary of State Clinton take the fall for the failure in security in Benghazi. During the vice-presidential debate Biden made it clear what the Obama agenda had planned.

Obviously the sad incident is part of the Secretary of State’s responsibility. The State Department’s website reports: The Secretary of State, and by extension, the Chief of Mission (COM) are responsible for developing and implementing security policies and programs that provide for the protection of all U.S. Government personnel (including accompanying dependents) on official duty abroad. This mission is executed through the Bureau of Diplomatic Security (DS). Personal and facility protection are the most critical elements of the DS mission abroad as they directly impact upon the Department’s ability to carry out its foreign policy. With terrorist organizations and coalitions operating across international borders, the threat of terrorism against U.S. interests remains great. Therefore, any U.S. mission overseas can be a target even if identified as being in a low-threat environment.

As a result, DS is more dedicated than ever to its mission of providing a secure living and working environment for our Foreign Service colleagues as they implement foreign policy and promote U.S. interests around the world. Nearly 800 DS special agents serve in regional security offices at over 250 posts worldwide. The DS special agents, also called regional security officers (RSOs) when serving abroad, manage security programs and also provide the first line of defense for our personnel, their families, U.S. diplomatic missions, and national security information. RSOs serve as the primary advisor to the COM on all security matters by developing and implementing security programs that shield U.S. missions and residences overseas from physical and technical attack.

It is obvious that there is a legitimate reason for the Obama administration to throw Clinton under the bus on this disaster. The majority on Obama’s team seems destined to sacrifice Hillary to save Obama’s re-election chances, including Vice President Joe Biden.

Vice President Jose Biden says he speaks only for himself and President Barack Obama, when he stated that neither of them was aware that U.S. officials in Libya had asked the State Department for more security before the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi. This was later repeated by a top White House official. Anyone who believes this please come ask me about buying my goose that lays golden eggs.

The State Department security officials who testified before House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa’s panel last week never said they had made their requests to the president, Rhodes pointed out. That would be natural because the State Department is responsible for diplomatic security, not the White House, he said. Rhodes also pointed out that the officials were requesting more security in Tripoli, not Benghazi.

Do you think that Hillary Clinton will take the fall without a fight? Former President Bill Clinton has already stepped in to give his wife some aid in the matter.

Ed Klein at the Daily Caller reported; “My sources tell me that Clinton is working on a strategy that will allow Hillary to avoid having Benghazi become a stain on her political fortunes should she decide to run for president in 2016.

Bill Clinton has even gone so far as to seek legal advice about Hillary’s liability in terms of cables and memos that might be subpoenaed by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which this week launched an investigation into the deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. The committee will also examine the apparent Obama administration cover-up that followed the Benghazi attack.

Finally, I’m told that Bill is playing with various doomsday scenarios, up to and including the idea that Hillary should consider resigning over the issue if the Obama team tries to use her as a scapegoat. That seems unlikely to happen. But if relations between Obama’s White House and Hillary’s State Department rupture publicly over the growing Benghazi scandal, that could damage the Democratic ticket and dim Obama’s chances for re-election.

Barack Obama has taken some initiative to protect his Attorney General Eric Holder, though it is possibly because of his own involvement in Operation Fast and Furious. It’s quite possible that Clinton is the one who not only knew of the need for extra security for the Libyan ambassador, but that she made the decision to not provide it”. 

I would appreciate your comments regarding this tragic incident. Listening to the mother of one of the slain Americans on the news made me ill, when she explained how she was treated by the administration long after the slaughter.
