Update: Argument Fail: Women’s History with the Clinton’s vs. Trump

Written by Juliana Simone

Editor: Tuesday, November 1st, Hillary reaction to Florida protester calling out Bill Clinton is a rapist. Linkhttp://www.theamericanmirror.com/shock-video-unhinged-hillary-explodes-bill-rapist-protester/

Hillary Clinton continues to avoid addressing the issues or discussing her many scandals in her decade’s long career. Instead, she goes low and uses sensational journalism tactics when addressing the voters who do appear at her events.

In an appearance today in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, the Democrat nominee had this to say before news broke that the FBI was reopening their investigation into the Hillary Clinton email scandal:

“Throughout this campaign, actually throughout his life, Donald Trump has demeaned and insulted women,” Clinton said.

She went on to refer to the allegations of sexual assault that have been leveled against Trump — and his denials, in which he suggested some women weren’t attractive enough to be assaulted. She referenced statements in which Trump said he went into beauty pageant dressing rooms to “inspect” the contestants, including teenagers. Such an overt stretch. You want to go there? Let’s talk about the alleged account many have reported on here:

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-05-29/bill-clinton-was-here-elite-one-percent%E2%80%99s-orgy-island-exposed

Inspecting the contestants is part of the job, and any woman who has been a model, actress or beauty pageant contestant knows you can’t show up for the audition or appearance, and not be up to what is expected as the person cast in this role or title. It is also common for heads of the agency or broadcast to make a pass at someone they find attractive. Many are flattered. This is small potatoes as to Mrs. Clinton’s husband’s past with women.

This is an amazing charge, considering who the former President of the United States, William J. Clinton is and his notorious account of philandering. Mrs. Clinton knows full well the long history of assault on women her husband owns.

Note to Hillary and her speech writers, if there is any actual evidence provided of “assault” by Mr. Trump, from this motley crew of women who have come forth for either a piece of the potential financial rewards pie, or for fifteen minutes of fame, “groping” or reviewing the moves he made on a woman in a locker room while unaware he was being recorded, pales in comparison with Bill Clinton’s lengthy record of assault on women.

 

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

Impeached President Clinton, corrupted a young White House intern while holding office, Monica Lewinsky, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monica_Lewinsky which led to the general public having to hear many vulgar details about their physical activities.

The former President also had a long record of unwanted intimacies with women while he was the Governor and Attorney General of Arkansas, including an allegation of rape by Juanita Broaddrick.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juanita_Broaddrick

The list is long, as Hillary’s wayward husband also allegedly had a long term affair with Gennifer Flowers, who was considered his mistress for years. Other serious charges were brought by Kathleen Wiley and Paula Jones.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kathleen_Willey

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paula_Jones

Bottom line is a good looking multimillionaire, is a magnet for many opportunistic women.

If Donald Trump, as someone not serving in public office, actually did any of the things Clinton’s campaign is harping about while avoiding the imperative issues that will affect our nation, it is miniscule in comparison to what William J. Clinton did as an elected official, from his days in Arkansas as Attorney General and Governor, to his two terms in Washington, D.C. as President of the United States.

Her accusations about Trump are a pathetic current stump speech from Hillary, who played a large part as the damage control chief in getting rid of Bill’s women, and ensuring their ruin as for any future professional or personal lives. The current candidate who claims to be ‘for women,’ aside from destroying the women who made their encounters with the former President, Governor and Attorney General public, also fails to pay women on her campaign staff equal pay, another false talking point she’s used over the past year.

With the breaking news of the FBI reopening their investigation into the Hillary Clinton email scandal today, Clinton’s staff may have to quickly write a whole new script for her to read in her upcoming appearances. The lesser sexual aspersions however legit towards Trump from the Democrat Party, vs. President Bill Clinton’s, will have to take a back seat to something Hillary and her highly paid staff can’t put on Donald… Mr. Trump has no background in selling access to him as a potential future President of the United States in a pay to play scheme like Hillary, nor does he have any record of choosing to use a private server as Secretary of State, which allowed classified information to be hacked by enemies.

Written by Juliana Simone

“Conservative Chat” – a half-hour political interview show brought to the public from the Barkhamsted Republican Town Committee for twelve years, and has been hosted by Juliana Simone for eleven, airs in six local district towns, Thursdays at 7PM, on Charter cable channel 191, and is uplinked online the following week of the original broadcast, at http://www.ctv13.net

This new episode features U.S. Senate candidate Dan Carter (R-CT) who is challenging former Attorney General and one-term Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) this November. Carter has also served three terms as a State Representative in the CT General Assembly for the 2nd district.

Representative Carter and Simone discuss his democrat opponent Senator Richard Blumenthal and his campaign’s latest ad that shows him as pro-defense, his voting record during his first term, his voting yes to the Iran deal, his joining Connecticut’s federal democrat delegation on stricter gun laws, his tendency to stretch the truth, his independence in the D.C. Assembly which focuses more on trivial things than important issues, and the upcoming debate Dick will have with Dan on “Face the State” at this time, on Sunday, October 23rd.

Carter also discusses his goals if elected, his military record as a Major in the Air Force, and what committees he would like to serve on with his well-rounded background which would make him an effective U.S. Senator on day one.

 

VP Debate: Pence vs. Kaine – the Professional vs. the Abysmal

inmyvuetimkainemikepencefoxnewsscreenshot
(l) Senator Tom Kaine (D-VA) (r) Governor Mike Pence (R-IN)

Written by Juliana Simone

Much has been said about this ninety minute broadcast that took place in Farmville, VA, since yesterday evening in terms of analysis and campaign talking points from both sides, but I want to weigh in for my followers who maybe missed this event and only heard a thirty second AP, Reuters or other mainstream media summary over their radio or television this morning.

It was shocking to hear how the liberals spliced words and soundbites this morning to make it sound like somehow, Vice President Nominee for Hillary Clinton’s Presidential bid, U.S. Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA) won this discussion. Or conversation. Or however it was nebulously framed by the left, as a debate would be too technical and constraining.

A national television broadcasting network who owns a radio station here, surmised the debate by editing into their soundbite a repeated campaign slogan Kaine used last night, with words Donald Trump has used to describe women over the past. This was followed up when the only thing Governor Pence (R-IN) did in this time period, again in view of liberal mainstream media talking points,  was apologize for Trump’s not being a polished politician. (edit out Pence’s saying like Clinton and Kaine)

How amusing, since anyone familiar with Hillary Clinton’s fierce actions on the many women who were involved with her husband, former President of the United States, William J. Clinton, willingly or unwillingly, knows she used much worse names to call women than Trump is being cited for now. Hillary? A friend to women? Not.

For the ladies who allegedly were assaulted by her husband, or those like Monica Lewinsky, who told the public the relationship with Mr. Clinton was consensual, Hillary chose to go after them and ruin their lives for her own husband’s depravities. A complete hypocrite who claims to be for women’s rights, and equal pay for women, currently pays the men on her own campaign staff more money than her female workers.

Trump, on the other hand, has a multitude of women in leadership positions within all of his companies.

Not without fault in terms of his own past, in terms of unsuccessful marriage, like the Clinton’s, who have not lived together for at least fifteen years, and did not even stay in the same hotel during the 2016 Democrat Convention, when Hillary was nominated to run for her party as their presidential candidate.

Trump’s women, two ex-wives and his current wife for over a decade, Melania, daughters and employees, all stand behind him.

The best the Clinton campaign could do after more than a year of digging was find one ex-Miss Universe, who obviously wanted money, a renewed momentary exposure, or both, to drag out of the woods and say how badly Trump treated her. The real story was that Trump did everything to help her when while still wearing the crown, she did many things that would have cancelled her contract and taken the title from her, despite advice from others involved who told him to drop her.

But, that said, this was the morning news sound bite from the liberal media who support Kaine, and now had to somehow make his horrible performance seem like a winning one: the negative words Trump used to describe women, and Pence’s one sentence the editors could find that sounded weak without the other 89 minutes, for most people who did not tune in to watch the debate last night.

This is how the mainstream media wants the general public to believe this is how the dual turned out among these two nominees. Quite a reach. An amazing job of making the complete opposite of what was true look accurate.

As someone who doesn’t usually tweet, or use my twitter account, I and many others who couldn’t believe the theatrics of this newscast, were tweeting every two minutes. No one was short of words. On my Facebook account, I wrote when it finished: That VP debate was completely bizarre. Maybe Hillary picked Kaine to make her look more stable and less unhinged. Quite a challenge.

It was the most absurd display between two Vice President Candidates anyone had ever seen.

Democrat Kaine, in any other venue, would be considered someone psychologically unsound. Totally unprofessional. Rude, crass and clearly on a mission to deliver whatever talking points he was instructed to do, he came across as a person never to be considered next in line as Commander in Chief of the United States of America. If Clinton is somehow elected and whose failing health has been observed by many professionals, despite denial from her doctor and campaign, Kaine showed viewers last night he is not capable of assuming our country’s highest office.

For fact checkers, please look up the many false remarks he made last night, some totally out of left field. Since the moderator was clearly out of her league, and there to assist Kaine and deflect Pence, the broadcast in itself was almost on the verge of reality TV.

It was revealed today Governor Pence was interrupted 72 times, a record breaking number, while the moderator said nothing except to admonish Pence once or twice to please give Kaine his allowed minutes. Kaine stared desperately at the moderator to break it up whenever Pence trounced him with truth, in a soft spoken voice with knowledge and patience.

Republican Pence, appeared as a comprehensive leader. Completely proficient. Polite, gentlemanly and solely there to represent the candidate who made him his under ticket, with shared policy and party agenda. The former popular Congressman who served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 2003 to 2013, exhibited himself as a man who could assume the Oval Office with ease. If Trump is elected, Pence has what it takes in terms of temperament and experience, to assume the position of the President of the United States, or run for this office after Trump.

Updated: U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) – Announces His Vote for Donald Trump: The Right Choice

September 23, 2016

Written by Juliana Simone

Texas U.S. Senator and 2016 presidential candidate, Ted Cruz, made the correct choice this Friday, in announcing he will be voting for Republican Nominee Donald J. Trump to be our country’s next President of the United States.

Cruz cited the two main reasons based on six vital issues in his statement as to why he’ll be voting for Trump on November 8th, is because, one, he wanted to keep his promise that he made  during the original debate with his colleagues over a year ago, that he will support whoever is the nominee, and two, because Trump will sign legislation from Congress, if Republicans still hold the majority, to get rid of Obamacare, the Affordable Health Care Act that has affected millions of Americans negatively.

The other four issues Cruz felt could not be managed without harm to our country, were energy, immigration, national security and the freedom of the Internet. He also stressed the importance of the Supreme Court and the importance of appointing Judges who will uphold the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

The mainstream media’s talking points are choosing the go to print headline word, “stunning,” in terms of his decision.

Not so, in that it is the right decision, both as a Republican who truly supports his Party and the forthcoming agenda, as well as the many voters from all across the country, who want to “make America great again,” as Trump’s campaign slogan declares. Cruz, is an impressive man and U.S. Senator who should not be left on the sidelines, if Trump takes the White House this November.

Cruz, well known for his educational achievements, earned two Ivy League college degrees.  With a major in public policy, he graduated cum laude from Princeton University, and went on to earn a degree from Harvard Law School. Renowned for his debating skills, where he excelled at Princeton and Harvard on a national level, he is both admired and loathed for being too smart for the room among his Senate colleagues today.

As a child born to an American mother and Cuban father, he was raised for a few years in Canada before moving to Texas. He attended private schools before going on to higher education. After earning his juris doctor degree from Harvard, he went on to serve as a law clerk, notably for Chief Justice of the United States, William Rehnquist. Cruz then worked for a law firm that dealt with the NRA (National Rifle Association) and in preparing testimony needed for democrat President William J. Clinton’s impeachment.

Perceivably, a difficult thing for Ted Cruz today, in stating he would be voting for his party nominee on Election Day, Donald J. Trump, other than the well-known barbs exchanged between the two competing candidates since debates began in latter 2015, must be the fact he worked on George W. Bush’s Presidential campaign in 1999. The majority of the Bush family have publicly declared they will not be supporting Trump on Election Day, and will be voting for Democrat Hillary Clinton, who many perceive as the worst Presidential candidate and nominee in our country’s history. {Editor’s note: more on this later}

The pressure from the Bush family must have been applied to Cruz, to not say anything publicly positive all the way until Election Day about his rival, who he came second to after the primaries by a large margin.

The Bush’s own namesake, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who also was a candidate for the presidential nomination this election year, dropped out early with only a handful of delegates, despite having the largest purse on hand in terms of fundraising, due to his family’s influence.

For Ted Cruz to make this proclamation today that he would be supporting Donald Trump and casting his vote for him on November 8th, shows he is many things.

A true Republican, who puts his Party before bitter losses or business-as-usual safety; a true Patriot, who as an incredibly intelligent man, sees the future of our country and how badly it would fail, and continue to fail, with a Clinton and former Obama administration, economically, domestically and internationally; A true gentleman, who perhaps acknowledges today however hard fought, and with whatever choices of words were used to win the nomination, positive or negative, Trump won with many odds against him; and a true visionary, who understands his place in politics is very needed.

Under a Trump administration, Senator Cruz can be appointed to many things where he will continue his long career as a valiant statesman, that defines his importance and career even more.

Trump’s Vice Presidential nominee, Indiana’s Governor Mike Pence, played a role in Cruz announcing his support for Trump.  Pence and Cruz exchanged multiple messages, spoke at length over the phone and then again in person, when Pence visited Capitol Hill a few weeks ago, a source close to Pence said.

Donald Trump had this to say about his fellow Republican’s support:

“I am greatly honored by the endorsement of Senator Cruz,” Trump said in a statement obtained by CNN. “We have fought the battle and he was a tough and brilliant opponent. I look forward to working with him for many years to come in order to make America great again.”

This latest episode features First Congressional Republican candidate, Matthew Corey, as he challenges the entrenched democrat opponent, who has been in Washington since 1999.

Mr. Larson, is still perceived by some voters as a moderate democrat, but he left that group far behind many terms ago. A higher up in his caucus leadership, he has been in lockstep with liberal, Nancy Pelosi (CA-12 ),  both when she had the title of House Majority Leader and now House Minority Leader.

In this latest program, Corey and Simone talk about the many issues the democrat’s under President Obama’s two terms, that have harmed our country, our military, our values and overall view of America across the world – from both our allies and enemies.

Candidate Matthew Corey, a hard working small business owner who has invested in Hartford, owns both a skyscraper window cleaning business and a tavern. Clear on policy, he makes many comments in this show that cover everything from the failed program of Obamacare, the immense national debt the Connecticut federal democrat incumbents never address, the excessive taxation the democrats have also burdened our citizens with on whatever income level, and Donald Trump, and what in his view, are his best policy plans if elected.

Archives: Mike Huckabee: Former AR Governor and Candidate for the President of the United States in New Hampshire 2015

Written by Juliana Simone

April 18, 2015

mikehuckabeenhsummit2015

Nashua, NH – Mike Huckabee first came to my attention when his intention to run for the office of the President of the United States was published on the cover of Newsmax Magazine. As a subscriber, he was new to me, as probably most people outside of Arkansas during this time. The feature gave him a glowing review, and listed the many positives about this man they realized most people knew nothing about, as the Governor of Arkansas. It was an impressive story.

Coming in second to party nominee U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) in 2008, Huckabee went on to host a Fox News program that had the highest weekend ratings for six years. The many fans of the former Governor asked him to run in 2012, but he declined, stating he had other things in his life right now that were more important to him. He did not feel this was the time for him to engage in a second campaign. This author believed that was the right decision for him when hearing the announcement.

Moving forward to the 2016 Presidential race, Huckabee has informed the press, the Republican Party and his base, that he will be making an announcement on May 5th. Assuming he will declare his intention to run once again for the highest elected office, this is the right time. For those readers who do not remember Mike Huckabee, never saw his program on Fox News, or perhaps only recognize him through the mainstream media’s anti-conservative perception in brief blurbs, this video is a good introduction of the man, his story, his experience and his message.

Addressing the recent New Hampshire Republican Leadership Summit, his speech to the group gathered at the Crowne Plaza Hotel was that of a true seasoned professional, who is still fresh with patriotism and vision and knows how to speak to people from every walk of life. Like Reagan, he is also very good at sprinkling his delivery with partisan humor. Many try to do this but fail. Huckabee excels. Watching this video reminded me of the Newsmax article published years ago that saw the same fire.

His opening comments alone presented an argument no other Republican Presidential candidate could make: his previous years of fighting directly with Bill and Hillary Clinton during his political campaigns in their home state of Arkansas. If Hillary Clinton, the presumed Democrat Party nominee at the time of this post, is the one to beat come November 2016, no other candidate has this first-hand experience except Huckabee. After an introduction from New Hampshire’s, Jennifer Horn, who pointed out he had been dealing and fighting with the Clinton’s and their political machine long before the public ever met them, she asked for a warm hand for the “real hope from Arkansas.”

Noting that Bill Clinton assumed his first year in office as the President when he was running for Lt. Governor of Arkansas, former Governor Huckabee had this to say at the summit in regards to his past experience on this subject:

“Every time I ever ran for public office, I ran against the Clinton’s. I ran against their political machine, I ran against their money, I ran against them…virtually every election both Bill and Hillary Clinton would come back and campaign for every opponent I ever had…if someone wants to know what it’s like to run against their operation – apparatus, come see me – I’ll be happy to tell you. I’ll show you some scars. I have quite a few.”

Huckabee went on to explain that Arkansas wasn’t a reliably red state then and that he won his seat as Lieutenant Governor in a special election. He explains he was the fourth Republican elected to a state wide office in 150 years. His story as the newly elected Republican LG under a Democrat Governor bests the majority of Hollywood scripts today. In his words:

“They were so happy to see me, when I got there, they were so excited to me, that my door was nailed shut from the inside.” (laughs) He said the Wall Street Journal flew reporter John Fund down to Little Rock to see was it so; and Fund reported back that there were physical nails literally in the door. Huckabee continues that it wasn’t just nailed shut, “it remained nailed shut for my first 59 days as the Lieutenant Governor of Arkansas. When the door was finally opened, I went into the office that was designated for the Lieutenant Governor. It had been stripped of all the office furniture, the budget had been zeroed out, and that was my welcome to the political machinery of the state of Arkansas.” (groans from the audience)

Continuing his political story, the former Governor tells the room he was re-elected the next year with the largest vote for a Republican in the history of the state, and that in large measure it was because people were tired of the political machine that they had seen chew them up and spit them out.

After being elected to a four-year term as LG, Mike tells the group, “I was down the end of the hall, minding my own business, when the Democrat Governor {Jim Guy Tucker} was convicted of Whitewater related felonies and was forced to resign – that put me in the office of Governor.”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whitewater_controversy

“It was the first of a long string of Democrat officials who were busted for various forms of corruption. We used to say the five most feared words of an Arkansas politician were these: Will the defendant please rise?” (laughs) When a person said, “You were Governor? How many years?” We’d say, “Office or prison?” (laughs)

“It was a tough environment,” Huckabee recalled. He told his fellow Republicans that when he became Governor in 1996, the Arkansas legislature consisted of 89 democrats and 11 republicans in the House, and 31 democrats and 4 republicans in the senate. Huckabee observed that to New Hampshire residents, they probably believed MA was the most lopsided partisan state in America – or maybe VT, ME, OR or CA – but, no, at this time it was Arkansas.

“But you know what that did for me? I learned how to govern,” he reflected. “When you go into the Capitol every day and people really don’t like you and really don’t want you to succeed, but you’re still able to get 90% of your legislature packages passed, it’s because you learned how to govern.”

Some people say, “We’re going to have to have someone who knows how to fight. I’ll tell you what, if you battled the political machine that I battled, you know how to fight; but we need someone who knows how to win the fight not just start it…and folks, one of the challenges we face is not just to fight the fight but to fix what the has been about.”

Huckabee says the next election is very important because it will determine if our nation is going to be free, safe and whether people and every young American can live out the American dream.

He pronounces on May 5th he will be making an announcement from his home town of Hope, AR, where Bill Clinton was also from, but then moved away at the age of five. Huckabee says he graduated from High School there, and that he was the first male who ever graduated high school let alone attend college in his family. He remembers his father lifted heavy things and worked very hard. When Mike was eight years old, his father took him to hear the Governor talk, because in his words father to son, he wanted him to hear a Governor, because he may live his whole life and never meet a Governor in person.

“No one would have ever believed his boy could become one,” the 44th Governor of Arkansas observed.

Huckabee mentioned he was in office for ten and a half years serving his state in the top office, the third longest in Arkansas history. He adds he was proud to campaign in 37 states last year to help win the U.S. Senate majority back and that Harry Reid was planning on moving back to Nevada. (applause)

“I want the Republican Party to start acting like the Republican Party,” Huckabee declares after scolding the Senate and Congress for not standing up to current President who is unconstitutional in his actions. (applause)

In regards to repairing our Republic, the 2008 Presidential candidate says, “public service should not be a permanent lifetime career. When do we have term limits in this country and say when you go to Congress, this is not the proverbial roach motel you go in but you never come out? We should say when you go in, and after a reasonable amount of time, you come out, go home, and find out what it’s like to live under the laws you for passed for the rest of us?”

He says he believes term limits should be for the Judicial Branch of our Federal Government, as well as the Legislative.

In terms of foreign policies, Huckabee articulates, “we need true leadership not apologies” and that making a deal with the Iranians is nonsense since they never keep a deal they make. He goes into an analogy about snakes and sums it up with “What we are dealing with in the Middle East is nothing short of a viper- that will bite us unless we can end its threat before it becomes an imminent threat to our own children and grandchildren.”

Returning to trouble at home, Mike Huckabee addresses the IRS. He believes the solution is to enact the Fair Tax and repeal the sixteenth amendment.

“I am a fair tax supporter because it will change our economy.” He explains the Fair Tax ends all taxes that produces something (income, savings, investment, capital gain, inheritance) and taxes would be paid at the point of consumption – or when we buy something. He feels the Fair tax is an incentive for those at the bottom, not a punishment as some would say, because it will make them want to move up the ladder rather than stay on the bottom rung.

He reflects on a visit to New Hampshire eight years earlier which taught him this lesson, and how on a tour in a machine shop, a man told him he had a daughter he wanted to have opportunities he didn’t have, so he was paying fifty thousand a year for her to go to Cornell University grad school. To do this, he decided he would work sixteen hours a day and double his time so that the second shift could go to his daughter’s future. When he went to collect his first paycheck, it was almost the same as working his one eight hour shift. He went to the office thinking there must be a mistake as he was expecting twice as much. The accountant said no, the problem is at sixteen hours a day, you’re in a new tax bracket.

Huckabee surmises to the Republican leadership summit attendees, that he learned the second shift he was working so it could go to his daughter and her schooling, was instead going to the government, so they could take it out of his pocket. “Why are we punishing someone who’s trying to move ahead?” he asked. “With a Fair Tax, if a person works twice as hard, they make twice as much money. The government doesn’t put them in a system that keeps them from ever being able to reach the next rung on the ladder.”

Mike continues to talk about the IRS, and their loss of emails and invasions of people’s privacy and says, “I think most Americans would agree the IRS has become a criminal enterprise and we need to get rid of it.”

Returning to the upcoming 2016 election, Huckabee repeats how President Obama has held this office with audacity and breaking the constitution for his own agenda. “We’re a nation of laws – not a nation of personalities and brute political power.” He suggests if Republicans want four or eight more years of this kind of rule, we can have another big Republican fight and do the Democrat’s dirty work for them with all the Republican’s jumping in, having a free for all and demolition derby, with the result of making the Democrat’s work easy for them.

“Here’s how I look at the Presidential sweepstakes,” the potential 2016 Presidential candidate declared.

“Every Republican that is or is potentially going to run, wants to be the Quarterback of the team. But the best way to earn the job of Quarterback, is to play the best game – to prove on the practice field that we actually can lead – and we have a history of doing it.

Our country is going through some storms and we’re headed for some tougher ones. I think most of you if you get on an airplane, and you look up there in the cockpit knowing you’re about to fly through some storms, you look up there and who’s sitting in the left seat? You want it to be somebody who’s flown through a lot of thunderstorms, not someone who just got out of flight school.”

He reminds the group that they will make the decision, but he hopes it will be based upon who can play the best game not who can savage the other people who want the job.

Bookending back to his opening remarks, Huckabee recaps, “As I said in the beginning. I know the Clinton’s all too well. They play to win. And they play and do anything necessary to win. I faced them time and time again. I lived to win. I lived to even tell about it. That in itself is remarkable.” (Laughs) “Now we have to unite and do something extraordinary for this great country.”

The ordained minister, and former Republican Presidential Candidate who hosted a Fox News program as a political commentator for six years which began in the fall of 2008, then told his audience about a recent trip to Los Angeles and appearance on liberal Bill Mars television show, where he met a driver going to the studio.  The driver was originally from the old Soviet Union, and he told Mike how he made a successful life for himself and his daughter after coming to America. Huckabee said he would tell his story for him and how some people came here to escape tyranny and find liberty.

Choosing to give ten minutes of his time to a question and answer period, the former Governor was asked about our other important ally in the Middle East, India. Mike Huckabee in this answer says America needs three things to remain free: to be able to feed ourselves, fuel ourselves, and fight for ourselves by manufacturing our own weapons of self-defense. His broad yet detailed response to this question makes his leadership skills clear. Governor Huckabee was also asked about climate change and his position on Israel and a Palestinian state.

 

{Editor’s note: Somewhere between nine and ten minutes of Mike Huckabee’s speech, Connecticut’s own veteran RNC member Pat Longo can be seen listening to the former Governor in an audience pan shot, as well as CT State Central member Catherine Marx.)

Update with video link: Hillary Clinton MSM/Campaign Spins on Early Departure from 9/11 Ceremony

September 11, 2016

Hillary Clinton being helped into campaign vehicle after medical episode at 9/11 ceremony

Written by Juliana Simone

The continuing saga of Democrat Presidential Nominee, Hillary Clinton’s health continued today, after a failed appearance in New York at the 9/11 fifteenth anniversary at Ground Zero. Ninety minutes into the memorial she had to leave. Reports written and with video, are showing the Democrat President Nominee, had to be taken out of the event by security aides, who lifted her into a black van after she visibly lost her balance and a shoe, as she was helped into the vehicle.

Whoever determined the language for the mainstream media as to how to describe this occurrence, have noted two different stories.

One, the heat was too much for her. For those not in this part of the country, it was a temperate day here in the northeast. Upper seventies at most. Windy. Low humidity.

Two, now diagnosed with pneumonia according to her doctor, Dr. Lisa Bardack, she was simply dehydrated in addition to being overwhelmed by the heat. Perhaps it’s the heavy wardrobe that makes a perfect day for everyone else unbearable. If one is dressed for January temperatures, yes, it is plausible one can be overcome by temperatures over fifty degrees.

With campaign operatives bringing her to daughter Chelsea Clinton’s nearby home after her exit, she emerged after whatever had to be administered to her to still look like a bankable candidate, espousing “I’m feeling great.”

The mainstream media will color this story in a way that shows the former Secretary of State, in its usual narrative…nothing to see here…move on. Amusingly, they chose to focus on her Republican opponent’s age. Donald Trump is seventy years old. Clinton will be sixty-nine in a little more than a month.

This age difference is so minuscule, numbers are irrelevant in this argument. Actions are a better example. Trump, with the energy of someone if not twenty, thirty years younger than himself, makes two campaign appearances a day on average. Clinton, makes two a week. Failing to make any press conferences over two hundred days, Clinton’s campaign came up with the idea to get her a new plane, where devoted press can fly around with her as she sits and pontificates without any physical distress and direct one-on-one diatribe to her minions.

In terms of policy, Trump has made one exceptional speech after the next, in terms of what he will do if elected to America’s highest office. Clinton has struggled with her speeches, and often has to resort to hate mongering against her opponent, which in terms of brass tacks, describes herself. This is a common Democrat tactic when campaigning, however.

Returning to the Democrat Party nominee for President 2016 and her health issues, the cause for concern does not subside. Her recent coughing episode in Cleveland, Ohio, that outlasted all the earlier ones, went on for multiple minutes. This is now being tied into her pneumonia diagnosis that was earlier dismissed by her doctor as something due to allergies.

The former N.Y. U.S. Senator, who though born and raised in Illinois, quickly bought a home in Chappaqua, N.Y. to be able to run for this seat, has had other health issues of concern.

In December of 2012, Clinton reportedly fainted and suffered from a concussion, two months before she was to retire as Secretary of State. The diagnosis was that she had been hospitalized for a blood clot, between her brain and her skull, somewhere behind her right ear, and was being treated for it.

What is available to the public, is she has also suffered from stomach viruses. A physician who called into a leading national radio talk show the other week, said in his view, the chronic cough suggests she has Parkinson’s disease.

Other’s have commented on this possibility, as well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zr1IDQ2V1eM

Whatever the case may be, voters need to ask about any candidate’s state of health, especially for the highest office in the United States of America. With this in mind, shouldn’t the VP pick for Mrs. Clinton have been more serious? Would voters even consider someone who very few recognized, Virginia U.S. Senator Tim Kaine, a plausible future President of the United States?

Clearly, this choice was superficial. It was a simple campaign move to boost up votes in a current swing state that formerly ran Republican. Pundits still wonder if the former First Lady, married to the former impeached President William J. Clinton, is going to make it to the finish line.

If the answer is yes, who in this country that longs to see its betterment lose all eight years of President Obama’s agenda, legislation and executive orders, would like to see this continue? If the answer is no, then good health is wished for Hillary Clinton, but her medical conditions, among her innumerable scandals that occurred during all of her titles and responsibilities that went with them, should clearly prove why she should not even be a contender in this most important race.

November’s election not only includes the future of America, but the many issues the country faces today. Whether its serious needed improvement of national security, jobs and economy, immigration, oversized government, or the preservation of The Constitution of the United States, voters need to recognize why Clinton, or any Democrat last minute substitute if need be, is not the answer.

 

 

 

 

Update: David Bossie: The New Trump Deputy Campaign Manager

Why He’s A Great Choice

Republican nominee for the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, along with his advisors, made a smart decision the other day. They hired Citizen’s United President, producer of the documentary, “Hillary The Movie,” among many others featuring conservative political voices, and contributing author to Breitbart, their new Deputy Campaign Manager. He currently is also the Chairman of the Super PAC Defeat Crooked Hillary.

To the chagrin of most liberal publications, and the talking heads of the mainstream media, this is not good news. Bossie has a long association as an anti-Clinton advocate. Material in this chosen subject is rich, so his choice was an easy one which started back in the early-nineties when first investigating then Arkansas Governor/Democrat POTUS nominee, Bill Clinton.

In researching this update, and reading numerous posts on the news of Bossie as the new DCM for Donald Trump, the spin on Bossie from the left was priceless. Describing him as dogged in his investigation of Clinton’s sex scandals (Bill’s), Whitewater, more currently the record of Mrs. Clinton, as the former Secretary of State, and the Clinton Foundation, a reader/listener would think there was no reason to look into any of these things…why, the Clinton’s are as pure as snow…just ignore the mountains of evidence.

One of the first articles I archived on In My Vue, was the piece I wrote about David Bossie from CPAC 2013, which was posted in April of this year. Impressive then and now, he is a formidable addition to the Trump campaign, who brings a treasure trove of information about the Clinton’s long history to the forefront for voters today.

CPAC 2013: David Bossie

March 15, 2013

National Harbor, MD – United Citizen’s long-time President David Bossie took the stage on Friday to tell the Conservative Political Action Conference participants that as CPAC was celebrating its fortieth anniversary this year, United Citizen was proudly celebrating its twenty-fifth anniversary. He told the group in one of the strongest speeches of the day that “conservatives really need to think of new and innovative ways to deliver our message…and film is one of them.” [Under Bossie’s tenure Citizen United produced five feature film documentaries including “Hillary: The Movie” in 2008 which was not allowed to be shown due to established unlawful electioneering communication; Citizens United sued on First Amendment grounds, but initially lost until in 2010 the Supreme Court found in their favor in a landmark decision that now allows profit and non-profit groups to air political material without limits on spending or timing of release.]

Discussing the Republican Party, Mr. Bossie observed to CPAC members “unfortunately, some in the Republican establishment are trying to divide us.” He explained conservatives want to win every election but RINO’s (Republican in Name Only) want us to sell out our values just to win; if we sell out our principles, then the conservative movement is a ship without a rudder.

The author and activist brought up well-known political strategist for the GOP, Karl Rove, who is under some controversy lately for believing the tea party costs Republicans elections. Rove and the establishments “Conservative Victory Project” believes this groups candidates need to be replaced with party insiders who have more moderate agendas and appeal.

Bossie asked the audience, “Why does Karl Rove think he’s the only one who wants to win? Did some conservatives lose their elections? Sure, but establishment candidates lost more.” He continued by saying he likes Rove, and he’s a smart guy – the Architect.  “He and Bush were architects of policy disasters,” he quipped.

Moving his observations to President Obama he said, “Obama all but declared war against conservatives in his second inaugural address.” He noted that Obama’s soaring rhetoric from his keynote address at the Democrat convention was replaced by his clear agenda where he used the expression “collective action,” words that Castro or Khrushchev would use in a speech to their starving people.

Remembering Obama’s promises to clean up Washington, Bossie mused “the only thing Obama cleaned was our Treasury.” Bossie affirmed the mainstream media is in his (Obama’s) pocket covering all of his mishaps, the latest of which is Benghazi. The former Washington investigator reminded the audience that not since (President) Jimmy Carter, for thirty years, have we had one of our ambassadors killed overseas. He cited a House Bill that was a transparency bill for families with loved ones killed overseas.

In regards to the second amendment, Mr. Bossie suggested Washington look into Hollywood on-screen violence before taking our guns away.

On immigration, Bossie stressed we should finish building the fence and enforce existing laws on immigration before discussing immigration reform. On “Obamacare” (the Affordable Care Act) he told CPAC listeners he was pleased to see (U.S. Rep.) Ryan defund Obamacare in his budget plan and that this should be every conservative’s priority – to defund Obamacare and his socialism.

He repeated President Ronald Reagan’s ideology and plan for our country that included free enterprise, strong national defense and pro-family social policies as things that would make America sound again. In his final words he appealed to conservatives, “the grassroots of our movements must not sit on the sidelines…double your efforts.”

Trump Rally in Connecticut: Huge and Electric

August 13, 2016

Fairfield, CT – Even in what is considered a blue state, actions (massive crowds attending Trump events) speak louder than words (Mainstream media coverage of Trump events and all things Republican). Saturday evening’s rally in the William H. Pitt Center at Sacred Heart University was another illustration of this phenomena. With notices to potential attendees that there was a capacity limit of 4,500 people in this room required by the fire marshal, the response was huge. Doors opened at 4:30 in the afternoon to assure seats to the general public who wanted to see the Republican nominee live, even though he wasn’t scheduled to appear until 7:30PM. Like all Trump appearances, the bold candidate met the limit easily and left many outside who could not enter, but were able to hear his address outside.

Taking the stage a half hour past his designated time, the crowd was still revved up to hear Mr. Trump even with temperatures above one hundred degrees in the designated space. A few devotees, who must have been there for hours, had to be taken out with help from the uniformed officers on hand, due to heat exhaustion. That said, as someone who has covered national, state and municipal events for years, there was an amazing myriad of combined supporters who came to see Donald J. Trump speak.

Few groups were unrepresented. All understood how vital this election in November is and what it means in terms of the future of our country and its success…

Businessman Donald Trump, couldn’t have looked more perfect – like a million dollars – no pun intended. Suit – perfect. Hair – perfect. Confidence – perfect. Message – perfect. Delivery – perfect. Though he primarily stayed on issue, he did deviate to remind his audience how horrible our Governor and state of affairs in Connecticut were, with our long standing statistics of being first in the highest taxes in the union, last in job/business growth, etc. He even remarked how Connecticut residents were all trapped here, since our houses can’t be sold as no one wants to move here, or houses were foreclosing due to lack of employment, or if willing to sell one’s house for much less than it was worth, one could leave at a loss.

He mused over Governor Malloy trolling for a job in D.C. if Hillary Clinton somehow, unimaginably, gets elected, despite all of her corruption, scandals, lies and crimes. Connecticut democrats met on Friday for a press conference to stipulate why Trump was so wrong for the state of Connecticut, when everything the state believed in was the opposite.

The democrat public appearance was amusing in that it made many residents say, Yes! Exactly! This is why we want to vote for Donald Trump! He is the opposite of the democrat majority in the Connecticut General Assembly and everything this party has instilled upon its residents.

Republican President Nominee Donald Trump spoke for around an hour and fifteen minutes. He recited most of his campaign policies which were met with cheers and chants from the audience whenever he hit a nerve. Immigration? Crowd: “Build the wall!” Hillary? “Lock her up!” Nationalism? “USA!”

Holding up a printed sign of how much his democrat opponent, Clinton, had received in campaign contributions from hedge funders vs. himself, with Clinton at over 48 million dollars, and Trump at 19 thousand dollars, he remarked how he could have chosen to use an unflattering photo of Hillary in this promotional piece, as his campaign preferred, but chose to take the higher road, and use an attractive picture of his opponent. He added Hillary’s campaign used horrible photos of him all the time, but it was more important for him to show the facts.

Trump also made it clear how much he disliked the press, and who largely are in the pocket for Hillary Clinton, despite how horrible a candidate she is. He noted whenever the cameras went on or off from the press, they were turned off when he had a rousing positive response, they did not record the size of the crowd, and they went on if one of maybe three protesters failed miserably in their duty, but made a noise before being escorted out.

He deduced that the New York Times was basically just short of going out of business and how in their constant attacks about Trump, their sources were always anonymous – in his view, not even real. He did give some credit to the Washington Post, another arm for the left, for being a little nicer to him these days.

He gave a shout out to the Connecticut Republican Party’s biggest and most consistent donator, WWE’s Linda McMahon, to former GE executive John H. Myers, who he cited as an example of someone whose company had to leave the state like so many other businesses due to exorbitant taxes, to our state chair and to all attendees as to why they needed to vote for him if they wanted jobs and business to return to Connecticut.

A true gentleman, he stayed an extra fifteen or twenty minutes after concluding his speech to shake hands or sign autographs with his fans. He promised to return to Connecticut again before Election Day.

Lightning was fierce for attendees leaving the event. Officials requested that the crowd stay indoors until the storm passed but many chose to leave after stifling hours of heat. Donald Trump clearly brought real electricity this evening.
