What Have We Learned From The 2016 Presidential Election?

by Jack

As this presidential election comes to a close, what have we learned? Speaking only for myself now, but I’ve learned that the American voter is  disgusted and frustrated with Washington. It would be safe to say, the great middle of democrats, independents, greens, libertarians and republicans feel that Washington is corrupt and incompetent and serves themselves before us.

deplorables-mugIn the beginning many of us wanted to take a chance on a wild card candidate like Trump, than elect one more career politician.  We hoped it would send a message to the rest of them, that being, “Most Americans would sooner trust a used car salesman over a Congressman.”

Another thing I’ve learned in this election is, there’s no bar too low for Hillary’s democrat operatives.  They will lie, cheat and break the law in order to reach their goal.  nothing they do would surprise me now.

The evidence is out here now,  thanks to leaked emails and Project Veritas.  Democratic operatives paid people to start fights at the scene of Trump’s speeches and then use those incident to blame Trump’s rhetoric.   Clever,  except this is voter intimidation!  It undermines our democracy and it’s absolutely wrong – wonder why these democrats couldn’t see this?

These same operators now help register illegal Hispanics to vote for Hillary.   There’s millions of them here – so the temptation was too great to resist for these ethically challenged people.  Their sales line is, voting for Hillary will help them stay in America and get citizenship.  Meanwhile, they are calling Trump an evil racists who would throw illegals in jail and deport them, even if it meant leaving their children behind.

I’ve learned only recently why it was absolutely necessary for Hillary to have a private email server, something the FBI was unable to do after thousands of hours of tedious investigation!   This is a complicated story, but I’ll try to give you enough to make some sense of it.   Hillary needed a private server to do her dirty deals outside the government system that she was violating.

Why couldn’t the FBI figure this out? Well, they probably did, but because most of the evidence was destroyed right after Congress issued a non-destruct order to preserve it they didn’t have enough to prove their theory.  But, now we’re getting the leaded emails and they tell it all and even implicate the FBI is one deal with Hillary operative, Patrick Kennedy.

The Clinton team didn’t know is their server was hacked by the Russians and they had copies of everything, even the missing 32,000 emails!  So, they were unprepared for the revelations of guilt!

Of course Russia couldn’t come forward and admit to this cyber crime, so they had to use a third party to reveal it, Wiki-leaks.   Those leaked emails show that Hillary used her position in the State Dept., to sell access and sometimes to sell favors, while also using the Clinton Charitable Foundation.   Thus, the Clinton foundation received millions of dollars from unfriendly sources in quid pro quo deals.   lies54

The Clinton’s personally profited in ways most of us couldn’t understand because their accounting is tricky, complex and devious, but the short explanation is money equals power, power equals money and they received both in boat loads.  Hillary and Bill have accrued over 100 million dollars since he left the White House, and after claiming he and Hillary  were basically broke.  Yes, Hillary leveraged off her Secretary of State position to garner the maximum dollars and power that she could.  I came in  campaign donations, in-kind contributions, speaker fees or directly to Clinton’s non-profit charity contributions.  Her fingerprints are all over the money.  This dirty money and usurped power has filtered back into her bid for the Presidency and she is ready to become our next president.

In the race to the White House Hillary and Bill coerced the Attorney General of the United States into giving Hillary a pass on lying to congress, destroying evidence, corruption in office, and extortion.

Somehow the Clinton’s managed to manipulate the Director of the FBI, James Comey too. He took a dive when he failed to request a complaint against Hillary, and this was after he admitted to the American public that Hillary had indeed lied about her handling of classified emails, lied about the destruction of evidence and lied the email server and Hillary-Clinton-Dem-Debate-4-14-2016-e1461277091393multiple cell phones she used in her diabolical plan to skirt the government’s secure system.    However, we were never told why Director Comey would not seek a complaint, he just didn’t. There seems no fathomable reason why and that makes me think bribery or extortion.  This was especially suspicious in the wake of the Petraeus conviction for a single count of mishandling classified material just a year earlier.

I could write a few more pages detailing more of Hillary’s transgressions, but if you don’t get it by now, chances are you will never get it.

Donald Trump was no Saint either. But, Trump has been his own worst enemy  in this race.  I know he’s not going to be president.  Sadly, any of the GOP primary candidates could have beaten Hillary by this point.   So, what’s the point of beating up Donald? There is no point.  But, at least what you see is what you get. As flawed as he may be that much he has going for him.   He speaks exactly what is on his mind, even if it gave ammunition to the Clinton campaign and it sure did.  I’ve never seen a race like this one, the Donald made so many blunders it would have been comical if it were not so sad for America.

The Donald said the media was conspiring against him and many of us laughed at him. But, in a peer poll it was found the out of 450 news anchors, all but 50 were democrats and most had given to the Clinton campaign.   Still laughing?   Read on:  “The New York Times’ media columnist, Jim Rutenberg, penned a recent piece suggesting that biased news coverage of Donald Trump, at the Times and among other mainstream media, is justified and rarely observed in the context of other partisan or ideological issues.

Rutenberg’s claim is that because Trump says things that are rude, politically incorrect, or debatable, and “conducting his campaign in ways we’ve not normally seen,” there is no need for news reporters to treat him to objective reporting.”

Is this absolute proof the mainstream media was against Trump? Nah, but I’ve witnessed how they reported.  Trump got the worst of it and Hillary’s corruption often got a pass.  So no need to convince me the media was biased.  You may feel otherwise, but that’s how I saw it.

This has been in many ways the worst election of a president in modern history.   It’s been divisive, it’s been racially charged, filled with lies and dirty tricks.  If we thought America was in trouble before, there is no doubt anymore.  We’re in serious trouble.  To make it worse, the Republican Party has virtually no spine left.  They have capitulated to the Democrats on every important issue.   They have let down their voter base once too often and they have destroyed the GOP because of their own timidity and ineptness.

This is what I have learned… how about you?

  1. Deplorable J Soden says:

    Well said, Jack!
    The Establishment Ruling Class of BOTH parties needs an energetic BOOT!

  2. Tommy says:

    The Patreaus case was totally different. Patreaus deliberately gave classified intel to someone without the clearance to have it. Clinton never did that. No one has ever been tried for doing what Clinton did.

    “They tell them this will help them stay in America and get citizenship, while calling Trump an evil racists who would throw them in jail and deport them, even if it meant leaving their children behind.”

    Well, isn’t that exactly what Trump says he will do?

    If you know Trump isn’t going to be president, do the moral thing and vote third party. Clinton’s going to win; that’s inevitable. But nothing is forcing you to live with the stain of Grabby-Hands Trump on your conscience for the rest of your life.

    • Tina says:

      Tommy (Chris?), the Petraeus case was much less egregious!

      Clinton regularly communicated with many people, including Sidney Blumenthal, a man that has never held high office or had a security clearance. His emails to Hillary contained “23 Classified Memos”:

      Sending nearly two dozen sensitive emails makes Blumenthal, a former journalist and aide in the Bill Clinton White House, one of Clinton’s most prolific sharers of classified information. The Democratic presidential candidate herself sent 104 emails containing classified information, The Washington Post found. (see link to WaPo article)

      Some of Clinton’s State Department aides, such as chief of staff Cheryl Mills and deputy chief of staff Huma Abedin, sent dozens of emails which contain now-classified information. Jake Sullivan, Clinton’s top foreign policy adviser, sent 215 now-classified messages.

      But the Blumenthal memos are especially intriguing because the longtime Clinton ally did not work for the government. Instead, during the period that he sent Clinton memos, he was working for the Clinton Foundation as well as for several non-profit organizations with close ties to the Clintons. He also worked during some of that period as an editor for The Daily Beast.

      an excuse Comey has for not recommending indictment is that he made sure his investigation was very narrow so it wouldn’t capture the egregious crimes of Hillary Clinton.

      As Andrew McCarthy points out in National Review, this goes beyond record keeping or classified documents…it’s about national defense:

      Mrs. Clinton stressed [at her March press conference] that she never stored classified documents on her private e-mail system. To the uninitiated, this sounded like the strongest point in her defense. Mostly, however, it is a red herring, exploiting the public’s unfamiliarity with how classified information works — and fueling no small amount of irresponsible speculation over the last few days about how the nature of her responsibilities meant classified material must have been stored on her private system. In the government, classified documents are maintained on separate, super-highly secured systems. Yes, if security gets lax or you have a determined Ed Snowden type with sufficient expertise, the protections can be defeated. But in general, Mrs. Clinton would not have been able to access classified documents even from a “.gov” account, much less from her private account — she’d need to use the classified system. In fact, many government officials with security clearances read “hard copies” of classified documents in facilities designed for that purpose rather than accessing them on computers. [Such a facility is often called a “SCIF” — sensitive compartmentalized information facility.] That said, there are two pertinent caveats. First, since we’re dealing with Clintonian parsing here, we must consider the distinction between classified documents and classified information — the latter being what is laid out in the former. It is not enough for a government official with a top-secret clearance to refrain from storing classified documents on private e-mail; the official is also forbidden to discuss the information contained in those documents. The fact that Mrs. Clinton says she did not store classified documents on her private server, which is very likely true, does not discount the distinct possibility that she discussed classified matters in private e-mails. We would not be able to judge that absent reviewing the e-mails. [Note: Now that the e-mails have been reviewed, what seemed a “distinct possibility” in March is now an indisputable fact.]

      He also pointed out the culpability of the President:

      “As a matter of political accountability, however, the president is responsible for all acts committed by executive branch officials, and Justice Department officials are responsible to investigate serious potential law violations that come to their attention, particularly those involving government officials.”

      “If they do not perform their duties, it does not necessarily mean they can be prosecuted, but it raises a profound question about their fitness for those duties,” said McCarthy, zeroing in on what he saw as the heart of the matter.

      We have since found out that Obama also sent emails to Hillary on her private server.

      Also, a case has been documented for espionage charges:

      Judge Andrew Napolitano says, “The case for prosecuting Mrs. Clinton for espionage is well-known, well-documented, and publicly revealed already.”

      In an interview with Fox Business Network’s Stuart Varney on Monday, Napolitano said the question that Clinton does not want to hear her IT guy Bryan Pagliano answer is: “How did you migrate secure state secrets into a non-secure venue? Did Mrs. Clinton give you her password?”

      Napolitano said that if “The answer is yes, then she’s committed another crime.”

      The most important thing for voters to know now is that the entire administration has shown itself to be corrupt and in collusion to protect Hillary Clinton.

      In America the law is blind. No government official is any different than any other citizen…none are above the law. UNLESS that government is totally corrupt. Hillary Clinton should never be president, in fact, she most likely belongs in jail and no one else now serving in the various departments of government that are involved deserves to keep his job!

      Trump has said many things about people who have come here illegally. He has said the most about those who commit criminal acts.

      Hillary has also said many things about the illegal population. In 2003 she said:

      ‘I am, you know, adamantly against illegal immigrants,’ Clinton told the John Gambling Radio Show in February 2003, when she was in her third year as a U.S. senator.

      ‘Certainly we’ve got to do more at our borders,’ she added. ‘And people have to stop employing illegal immigrants.’

      On Tuesday in Las Vegas, however, Hillary told a room full of high school-age illegal immigrants that if she becomes America’s next president, ‘I will fight for comprehensive immigration reform and a path to citizenship.’

      She also talked about putting up barriers along the border.

      Ben Carson recalled Bill Cliton’s remarks in a state of the union address:

      Speaking to “Fox News Sunday,” Carson recalled Clinton’s 1995 State of the Union speech in which the commander-in-chief said Americans are “rightly disturbed” by “the large numbers of illegal aliens” and pledged a crackdown on deportations and border security.

      “[Clinton] said illegal aliens are creating big problems for us and we’re going to put a lot more Border Patrol people on and secure our border and we’re not going to have people able to work who come in illegally,” Carson said Sunday. “We’re going to cut off their welfare benefits and we’re going to deport people in record numbers. You know, he says basically the same thing, but when he says it, wow, great, standing ovation, this is a great president. But when Trump says it, it’s hate speech. What hypocrisy. What incredible hypocrisy.”

      Hillary and Bill are phony and untrustworthy and so are the people they have around them.

      You would know all of this if the media wasn’t also totally corrupted.

      No one knows who will be elected unless the election is truly rigged. I wouldn’t put it past the Alinsky/mafia inspired Clinton, Obama, Soros, cabal! Which makes voting third party a really stupid choice. But your suggestion goes straight to Rules for Radicals rule 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” Since you are aware that morality means a lot to people on the right you hope to shame us into making a stupid decision. This time it would be even more immoral to cast a vote that would help Hillary into the White House.

      Nice try…no banana! We also take note that in rule #4 we are referred to as “the enemy.” You on the left have no respect for your fellow citizens or for the process. Despicable!

  3. Libby says:

    “Hillary needed a private server to do her dirty deals outside the government system that she was violating. Why couldn’t the FBI figure this out?”

    Probably because the only place anything criminal ever happened was in your head. Influence peddling is damnably irritating, but only an ignoramus thinks it’s a practice confined to the Democratic Party, or, as a matter of phone calls, introductions and access, illegal. Some clown, whose name I forget, does pro bono work for Hillary’s Foundation and uses the contacts made thereby to foster his own business. As I said, it’s annoying, irritating, but not illegal. And no about of hyperbolic carryings on by you will make it so.

    We’re not really going to have to listen to this blather for four years, are we? It’s already a bore.

  4. Soaps says:

    It is true that the FBI investigation was compromised. But I knew and worked with many FBI Special Agents, and I cannot believe that they would be part of a cover-up. They are the most honest and most ethical of all law enforcement officers. They have to take a polygraph periodically, often once per year, and every time after an important investigation. I suppose Comey is exempt. But I wish one of those Congressmen at the hearings would ask him when was his last poly and what were the results. Yes, I have lost confidence in the FBI as an institution, but I think many of the working level FBI agents, who were known as “brick agents,” are still honest and most likely very ashamed.

    • Tina says:

      I don’t believe it’s the brick agents either, Soaps. If they hadn’t been required to sign special non-disclosure agreements we’d be hearing more from them today. Some are bound to talk anonymously. People’s Pundit Daily claims as much:

      ources at the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) say Director James Comey prevented agents from properly investigating former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over her improper use of a private email server to transmit classified intelligence.

      Director James Comey protected Hillary Clinton from agents investigating the mishandling of classified information. Two agents claimed that Director James Comey prevented them from properly investigating former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over her improper use of a private email server to transmit classified intelligence.

      According to an interview transcript given to The Daily Caller, which was provided by an intermediary who spoke to two federal agents with the Bureau last Friday, Director Comey “stood in the way” of the investigation and a subsequent recommendation to the Justice Department by the FBI to prosecute Mrs. Clinton. The agents, which may or may not be the same sources for a separate report being developed by People’s Pundit Daily, are furious Director Comey has led the Bureau into an era of politicization.

      Director Comey said during his press conference and again during his testimony to the Oversight Committee in the House of Representatives that the decision was unanimous. But sources tell People’s Pundit Daily, and apparently The Daily Caller, as well, the decision not to prosecute was far from unanimous.

      “This is a textbook case where a grand jury should have convened but was not. That is appalling,” said one FBI special agent, who has public corruption and criminal cases under their belt. “We talk about it in the office and don’t know how Comey can keep going.”

      Agents had also suspected from the unprecedented set of “do and do not” rules given to them during the probe that the fix was in and began leaking details to People’s Pundit Daily (among others) during the summer.

      “All the trained investigators agree that there is a lot to be prosecuted but he stood in the way,” the agent said, adding that he left out standard procedures that are never ignored by federal investigators conducting such a probe.

      Also, three days ago, FOX, Judge Napolitano: “…newly-released FBI documents show evidence of a bribe being offered by a senior State Department official to FBI agents.

      Patrick F. Kennedy, the undersecretary of state for management, is reported to have pressured FBI agents to change the classification on sensitive documents found on Hillary Clinton’s private email server.

      The new revelations were contained in just-released FBI interview summaries from the Clinton email investigation.

      History will expose it all eventually. Too bad our media isn’t willing to do the job they did during the Watergate years. If they were willing this thing would be busted wide open.

    • Dewster says:

      It’s not that they do not want to.It is orders from higher than the White house. The fact is the house of cards is very very big and affects many people in high places in the world. if you served can reach out and find the info. My source has been silent for now.

      Comey has a long history with the Clinton’s.

      connect the dots all these people have a revolving door. they intertwine in parties. remember Comey is a Republican.

      The corrupt game is huge. the emails are just evidence. Not the game.

      Time for people to stop this my side and your side crap. It is that to which they use to keep corruption going.

      Ya have never thought they would send leaks themselves bouncing off Moscow? LOL it accomplishes 2 things. They leak info to get her and create a false flag.

      All countries hack. All countries create false flags.

      Citizens of the world are left to figure it out. Media is no more than State Propaganda here and in Russia.

      I Blame everything on Americans who allow this by playing the Red and Blue Game.

  5. Tina says:

    As I read through the comment above in which I quoted Andrew McCarthy I noticed something. Here’s the part of the quote that’s relevant:

    How the he77 did Sidney Blumenthal get posetion of classified information much less send it to Hillary on the private server??

  6. Dewster says:

    They used the private Server to avoid the FOIA act. plain and Simple.

    The Elite are special. They get away with Murder.
