Open Borders is a very controversial subject but all one has to do is look at the enormous problems that Open Borders has caused in Europe,   If a nation does not control its borders, it cannot control its sovereignty.   Nancy

Leaked Hillary Clinton Speech to Foreign Bank: ‘My Dream Is a Hemispheric Common Market with Open Trade and Open Borders’

by JULIA HAHN7 Oct 2016Washington D.C.
EXCERPT FROM  THIS ARTICLE: 

  • The Center for Immigration Studies’ Steve Camarota has projected that, based on the minimal figures Clinton has put forth thus far, Clinton could add 10 million new immigrants to the U.S. during her first term alone – in addition to the 11 million illegal immigrants Clinton has said she plans to amnesty within her first 100 days in office.
  In closed-door remarks delivered to a foreign bank, Hillary Clinton declared that her “dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders.”

This statement from one of Clinton’s private paid speeches was discovered in leaked emails of Clinton’s campaign chair, John Podesta, which were made public by WikiLeaks.

One email, which provided partial transcripts of some of Clinton’s speeches, reads in part:

*Hillary Clinton Said Her Dream Is A Hemispheric Common Market, With Open Trade And Open Markets. *

JAMES COMEY, FBI DIRECTOR – CLINTON FOUNDATION CONNECTION

Friday, October 7th, 2016

 

Exposed: FBI Director James Comey’s Clinton Foundation Connection

 PATRICK HOWLEY10 Sep 2016
WASHINGTON, D.C. — A review of FBI Director James Comey’s professional history and relationships shows that the Obama cabinet leader — now under fire for his handling of the investigation of Hillary Clinton — is deeply entrenched in the big-money cronyism culture of Washington, D.C. His personal and professional relationships — all undisclosed as he announced the Bureau would not prosecute Clinton — reinforce bipartisan concerns that he may have politicized the criminal probe.

These concerns focus on millions of dollars that Comey accepted from a Clinton Foundation defense contractor, Comey’s former membership on a Clinton Foundation corporate partner’s board, and his surprising financial relationship with his brother Peter Comey, who works at the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes.

Lockheed Martin

When President Obama nominated Comey to become FBI director in 2013, Comey promised the United States Senate that he would recuse himself on all cases involving former employers.

But Comey earned $6 million in one year alone from Lockheed Martin. Lockheed Martin became a Clinton Foundation donor that very year.

Comey served as deputy attorney general under John Ashcroft for two years of the Bush administration. When he left the Bush administration, he went directly to Lockheed Martin and became vice president, acting as a general counsel.

How much money did James Comey make from Lockheed Martin in his last year with the company, which he left in 2010? More than $6 million in compensation.

Lockheed Martin is a Clinton Foundation donorThe company admitted to becoming a Clinton Global Initiative member in 2010.

6 INSANE Things Hillary Said In Last Night’s Debate

BY: BEN SHAPIRO    SEPTEMBER 27, 2016

Thanks to all of the pyrotechnics at the first presidential debate on Monday night – and thanks to Donald Trump’s Chernobyl-style meltdown over his IRS records, his business history, his Iraq war position, and the like – it was easy to overlook the insane proposals put forward by Hillary Clinton.

We shouldn’t.

Video: Fmr. Bush official Carlos Gutierrez endorses Clinton

Hillary openly advocated some of the most radical propositions in American history. Here are six of them.

1. “Profit-Sharing.” Clinton advocated making “the economy fairer.” In promoting that stupid notion – stupid, because mutually consensual exchange is by nature “fair” from any objective point of view – she pushed raising the national minimum wage (throwing thousands out of work) and “equal pay for women’s work” (read: unequal pay for the same work for men). But her truly insane line came next: “I also want to see more companies do profit-sharing. If you help create the profits, you should be able to share in them, not just the executives at the top.” Now, many companies already have so-called “profit sharing” – employees who own stock benefits. On a broad level, all companies have “profit sharing” – you have continued employment because your company earns a profit. You don’t have a share of every dollar of profit earned because you don’t get dinged for every loss. But Hillary seems to be advocating for a full-scale governmental intervention into every business in America – letting the feds decide how much employees should make in every industry. This is, as Dennis Prager pointed out today, economic fascism.

THE DIVERSITY POLICE RAID THE BOARDROOM

Friday, August 19th, 2016

 

The Far Left’s agenda to weaken our country is now poised to strike our corporate boardrooms.  Assuring  lackluster  performance of our corporations would be the result if  more emphasis is put on gender, race and ethnicity  of corporate board members rather  than their expertise and success  in their particular  fields.  You have got to give the Far Left credit, they are diabolically clever at what they are pushing for !  I suspect Trump will put a stop to their agenda  !!!   Nancy  
THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

The Diversity Police Raid the Boardroom

Forcing firms to disclose the race and gender of their directors is a step toward de facto quotas.

EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE: 

Activists such as Aaron Dhir, a professor at York University’s Osgood Hall Law School in Toronto, have urged that companies be compelled to consider “the socio-demographic composition of their boards”—that is, directors’ sex and ethnicities, not their diversity of experience. At the very least, firms could be forced to explain why they refuse to enforce quotas in the boardroom. These aren’t only the ideas of an obscure professor. Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D., N.Y.) has been pressuring the SEC to force companies to identify “each board nominee’s gender, race, and ethnicity.”……..The professor’s radical views are matched at the highest levels of the Obama administration. The White House’s relentless drive to redefine America as a kaleidoscope of groups, rather than one united nation, is about to invade the corporate board room. Warren Buffett, call your office. Or, better yet, try your friends in the Oval Office.

OBAMACARE SICKER SHOCK

ObamaCare Sicker Shock

Why average premiums are soaring 18% to 23% across the country.

August 12, 2016

Hillary Clinton admits she’s running to extend the Obama legacy, and so far she’s had a free ride in defending it. She hasn’t even had to explain the increasingly obvious failures of ObamaCare to deliver the affordable insurance that Democrats promised.

The Affordable Care Act is now rolling into its fourth year, and even liberals are starting to concede that the insurance exchanges are in distress and Congress may have to reopen the law. Premiums are high and soaring; insurers have booked multimillion-dollar losses and are terminating plans; and the customer pool is smaller, older and less healthy than the official projections.

The natural result is another round of rate shock for 2017. Insurers in 49 states have submitted their premium requests to regulators, and the average “enrollment-weighted” rate increase, which accounts for market share, is in the range of 18% to 23%. The Congressional Budget Office projected 8%.

THE GREEN WAR AGAINST THE WORKING CLASS

Thursday, April 28th, 2016

 

The Green War Against the Working Class

Stephen Moore /  /  COMMENTARY BY

The latest evidence came last week when another coal giant in America, Peabody Energy Corp., declared bankruptcy. This is the same fate suffered by Arch Coal Inc., Alpha Natural Resources Inc., and other coal producers that have filed for Chapter 11 protection from creditors.

Peabody has stated that the lower cost of natural gas may have been a factor in their decline, and I am all for market competition, but this isn’t a result of free market creative destruction. This was largely a policy strategy by the White House and green groups.

They wanted this to happen. This was what Clean Power Plant rules from the Environmental Protection Agency were all about.

The EPA set standards by design that were impossible to meet and even flouted the law that says the regulations should be “commercially achievable.” This was a key component of the climate change fanaticism that pervades this White House.

OBAMA’S NEW RULINGS AND PFIZER’S RESPONSE TO NEW RULING

Monday, April 11th, 2016

 

The first article   gives an in-depth look at more new regulations coming out of the Obama Administration.  The Obama Administration has till Mid May to issue new regulations  (If Republicans win the White House and maintain control of Congress, any rule issued by Mr. Obama within 60 legislative days of the end of his term could be overturned. That is because a Democratic president wouldn’t be there to veto a congressional vote to block the regulation).
 The second article by the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Pfizer explains how the U.S. pharmaceutical industry will be impacted by this week’s U.S. Treasury’s new ruling which will affect their competitiveness against foreign companies .      Nancy 
THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

Obama Readies Flurry of Regulations

Burst of rule-making comes in an election season that has already been tough on corporate interests

Planned moves—across labor, health, finance and the environment—range from overtime pay for white-collar workers to more obscure matters such as requiring food makers to disclose added sugar on cartons of flavored milk.
The expected burst of regulation follows an intense few weeks in which the administration has targeted corporate tax inversions, imposed new rules on brokers and advanced restrictions on company relations with union organizers.

The could’ve-been Pfizer-Allergan mega-merger was scuttled by new Obama administration regulations on corporate inversions and something called “Earnings Stripping.” How could these clampdowns be costly to companies with interests overseas? Jason Bellini has #TheShortAnswer. Photo: AP
The moves have drawn sharp reactions from business groups. After the tax rules, a top U.S. Chamber of Commerce official lamented “politicians bullying America’s job creators.” The head of the Business Roundtable, which represents big-company CEOs, criticized “unilateral action” by the administration.
The rush reflects President Barack Obama’s aim to use his final months in office to cement a progressive domestic-policy legacy using executive powers despite fierce opposition from a Republican-controlled Congress.
