HILLARY’S CAMPAIGN – HERE’S WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

Here’s What Really Happened to Hillary

Voters found her unappealing, and they rejected Bernie’s ideology too.

By Kimberley Strassel   September 15, 2017

Republicans have issues, but Democrats have them too. Witness the two individuals who dominated this week’s news—and who conveniently represent the left’s most crippling problems.

Hillary Clinton is again everywhere, touting her new memoir and adding to the list of who and what are to blame for her loss: Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Barack Obama, James Comey, Jill Stein, Vladimir Putin, Julian Assange, Anthony Weiner, sexism, misogyny, the New York Times , lazy women, liberal activists and the “godforsaken Electoral College.” All she’s missing is climate change.

Hillary’s take on “What Happened” has unsurprisingly unleashed another round of analysis about her mistakes—Wisconsin, deplorables, email. These sorts of detailed postmortems of failed campaigns are popular, but they tend to obscure the bigger reasons for failure. In this case: The Democratic Party saddled itself with an ethically compromised and joyless candidate, because it had nobody else.

Hillary spent eight years planning her first presidential bid, and the next eight warning Democrats not to get in the way of her second. The Clinton Foundation was erected to serve as bank and Rolodex, and to enable the Clintons to retain their grip over the party. And that party was committed to a Clinton coronation, right up to Mr. Sanders’s cheeky assault.

Mr. Obama aided Mrs. Clinton’s ambitions by decimating his party. By the time Barack Obama finished his eight years in office, his party held 65 fewer House seats, 14 fewer governorships and controlled 30 fewer state legislatures. It had turned a once-filibuster-proof Senate majority into minority status. The big-tent Democratic coalition shriveled to a coastal, progressive minority, wiping out a generation of Democratic politicians and most of the party’s political diversity.

THE LEFT TRIED TO REWRITE HISTORY IN THE HOLOCAUST MUSEUM RE OBAMA’S ROLE IN SYRIA

THE WEEKLY STANDARD

Whitewash Interrupted

EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE:  And the report was anything but disinterested. The museum’s memorial council includes at least five former Obama National Security Council staffers, among them Ben Rhodes, arguably more responsible for the administration’s Syria policy than anyone except the man he worked for.

The truth is Obama did not merely do nothing while Assad put the people of his country through a meat grinder and gassed children. He stepped aside out of respect for what he called Iran’s “equities” in Syria. Assad was Tehran’s man, and Obama didn’t want to interfere lest his coveted deal with Iran’s leaders come undone. Worse, as part of that deal, he approved filling the Iranian regime’s war chest with billions of dollars in sanctions relief and repatriated funds that had been frozen in the United States ever since Ruhollah Khomeini’s revolution. It’s no exaggeration to say that the misbegotten Iran deal helped fund Assad’s murderous campaign.

Whitewashing Obama’s role and their own in a genocide, his aides sought to etch their perverse draft of history in stone—in the stone halls of a museum whose stated mission is to inspire “citizens and leaders to confront hatred, prevent genocide, and promote human dignity.”

Last week the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., removed from its website a study absolving the Obama administration of any blame for its inaction in the face of the Syrian genocide. The study had been scheduled for release amid much hoopla at a September 11 event hosted by the U.S. Institute of Peace.

BOOK REVIEW – DAVID HOROWITZ’S ‘BIG AGENDA’

Friday, September 15th, 2017

 

THE DAILY CALLER

David Horowitz’s “Big Agenda” Matters — Book Review

Lloyd Billingsley is a policy fellow at the Independent Institute, and is the author ofBarack ‘em Up: A Literary Investigation, and Bill of Writes: Dispatches from the Political Correctness Battlefield.

“Conservatives were justifiably worried that America’s decline was reaching a point of no return,” writes David Horowitz. After the recent election, many breathed a sign of relief, but as the author of Big Agenda sees it, “one battle is over, but there are many more to come.” To prevail, the combatants must want to win, but that has not always been the case with Republicans.

In 2012 Mitt Romney possessed strategic intelligence on his opponent yet failed to deploy it and duly lost the election. In 2016, Romney blasted fellow Republican Donald Trump as “a phony, a fraud,” a charge Clinton gleefully used in attack ads. Veterans of the Bush White House announced that they would vote for Clinton. In the six years they controlled both houses of Congress, Republicans failed to investigate into the Clinton Foundation.

Horowitz wonders what Republicans failed to understand about the perils of the nation, and “the destructive agendas of the left that threaten its future.” Here the author draws from his vast experience on the left.

The progressive movement operates on “almost religious convictions,” which is why members move in lockstep, and demonize anyone outside their ranks. The movement divides society into “oppressor” groups such as whites, males, Christians and heterosexuals and victim or “oppressed” groups such as “people of color” and the LGBT squads. For Horowitz this is “the old Marxist wine in new bottles.”

FOX EXCLUSIVE: BENGHAZI – SECURITY CONTRACTORS SPEAK OUT

THE CRUELTY OF BARACK OBAMA

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017

 

The Cruelty of Barack Obama

On immigration, the ex-president isn’t what he says he is.

Throughout his political life, Barack Obama has been hustling America on immigration, pretending to be one thing while doing another.

Now he’s at it again. Mr. Obama calls it “cruel” of Donald Trump both to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program that protected hundreds of thousands of people who came to the U.S. as children illegally—and to ask Congress to fix it. The former president further moans that the immigration bill he asked Congress to send him “never came,” with the result that 800,000 young people now find themselves in limbo.

Certainly there are conservatives and Republicans who oppose and fight efforts by Congress to open this country’s doors, as well as to legalize the many millions who crossed into the U.S. unlawfully but have been working peacefully and productively. These immigration opponents get plenty of attention.

  What gets almost zero press attention is the sneakier folks, Mr. Obama included. Truth is, no man has done more to poison the possibilities for fixing America’s broken immigration system than our 44th president.

The DeVos Guidance Speech

The Education Secretary takes on Obama’s assault on campus due process.

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos speaks at George Mason University in Arlington, Va., Sept. 7,.2017

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos on Thursday gave one of the most important and defining speeches to emerge from the Trump Administration. It deserves to be read in full.

Her subject, long anticipated in the academic community, was the Obama Education Department’s 2011 “guidance letter” to all institutions of higher learning on conducting investigations of sexual abuse under the federal education law known as Title IX. As expected, Mrs. DeVos and the head of her civil-rights office, Candice Jackson, intend to replace the current Title IX guidance after a period of public comment. The DeVos speech, however, was about much more than a bureaucratic revision.

Interior Secretary Zinke Connects With Local Communities in Protected Lands

ASHLAND, Ore.—On a dirt road high on a mountain near here, the secretary of Interior unfolded his 6-foot-2-inch frame out of a dusty black Suburban one morning recently and started shaking hands with a group of ranchers in cowboy hats.

“The president has made it clear—I work for you,” Ryan Zinke told the ranchers, who had gathered to tell him their grazing operations would be hurt by a recent expansion of Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument.

The appearance by a top federal official was well received. “No one has come out here before,” said rancher Jeremy Kennedy. “We finally have a voice.”

TRUMP RESTORES WORK REQUIREMENTS FOR WELFARE

Tuesday, September 5th, 2017

 

 
Trump moves to restore
work requirements for receiving welfare

 – The Washington Times – Wednesday, August 30, 2017′


The Trump administration moved Wednesday to reimpose work requirements for Americans on welfare, revoking an Obama-era policy that had urged states to apply for waivers exempting the poor from having to show they were either getting job training or looking for work.
Requiring work was a key part of the 1996 welfare reform law enacted by a GOP-led Congress and signed by then-President Bill Clinton, and Mr. Trump’s move restores the law as written.
“The waiver option offered by the Obama administration is being replaced today by an expectation that work should always be encouraged as a condition for receiving welfare,” said Steven Wagner, the Health and Human Services Department’s acting assistant secretary for children and families.
