2016 ELECTION

Hillary Clinton alleged to have armed Islamist rebels in Syria as Secretary of State – While much of my attention in recent times has been on the disgraceful antics of Donald J. Trump, let it not be said that I – and others like me in the #NeverTrump camp – have lost sight of the treason and treachery of the next president. That Mrs. Clinton will likely never face criminal charges for her actions is a source of frustration, but nonetheless she has been exposed and will be unable to govern effectively once in office.  A one-termer in the making, if she even makes it through the whole term …

Trump steps up attacks on gold star parents Khizr and Ghazala Khan, as well as on GOP leaders who criticized him over it – Rule number one of campaigning: When you’re in a hole, stop digging. Neither candidate does themselves a favor by attacking gold star parents. But whereas Mrs. Clinton issued a subtle dig at Patricia Smith, insinuating the woman was lying about their meeting, and let it go at that, Trump has to go and make a big show of attacking the Khans.

Reports state the Obama administration paid $400 million ransom to the Iranians to free American prisoners – Grateful these four Americans are free, but what kind of precedent does it set when any hostile nation looking for desperately needed cash can just kidnap a few of our citizens and our government will simply pay up?

Venezuela to force its citizens into forced labor – slavery – in a vain attempt to address its economic catastrophe – One better believe that when the shit hits the fan in America, either Trump or Clinton will do the same as Maduro is doing to his people. Maintaining absolute power ‘trumps’ (pun intended) all else for tyrants …
