We need a Change...

Considering "Hope and Change have failed, we need to find our next President from those running against Mr Obama. Even liberal commentators, such as Maureen Dowd are turning against the President as they recognize his lack of ability...

A majority of Americans disapprove of the FBI's recommendation not to charge Hillary Clinton with a crime over her handling of email while secretary of state, and a similar number in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll say the issue leaves them worried about how she would handle her responsibilities as president if elected.

Most also say the email controversy won't (but should) affect their vote in the presidential election. But 28 percent say it leaves them less likely to support her.

Reactions to the decision are highly political, with partisanship factoring heavily in people's views. Yet Democrats don't back Clinton up on the issue nearly as much as Republicans criticize her, and independents side more with Republicans.

6/30/16: Clinton appears to have emerged relatively unscathed from the release this week of the House Select Committee on Benghazi’s report on her actions as secretary of State in connection with the murder of the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans by Islamic terrorists in September 2012. Why?

Rasmussen Reports will be releasing new numbers on Clinton and Benghazi at 10:30 a.m. Eastern today.

Trump made a major speech on jobs & trade on Tuesday that even the NY Times characterized as “perhaps the most forceful case he has made for the crux of his candidacy …. that the days of globalism have passed and that a new approach is necessary.” Some also speculate that last week’s vote in Great Britain to leave the European Union signals a rise of economic nationalism that is good for Trump. Despite the media panic and market swings that have resulted, Americans are not particularly worried that the “Brexit” will hurt them in the pocketbook.

The tables have turned in this week’s White House Watch. After trailing Hillary Clinton by five points for the prior two weeks, Donald Trump has now taken a four-point lead.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey of Likely U.S. Voters finds Trump with 43% of the vote, while Clinton earns 39%. Twelve percent (12%) still like another candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided.

Last week at this time, it was Clinton 44%, Trump 39%. This is Trump’s highest level of support in Rasmussen Reports’ matchups with Clinton since last October. His support has been hovering around the 40% mark since April, but it remains to be seen whether he’s just having a good week or this actually represents a real move forward among voters.

The political arm of United Mine Workers of America, a union of coal miners, has endorsed Sen. Rob Portman (R., Ohio) for reelection, dealing a blow to Democratic challenger Ted Strickland.

The move represents a departure for the union, which has a history of endorsing Strickland, a former governor, and fellow Democrats. Strickland has come under fire in recent months for his ties to anti-coal organizations. Portman’s campaign announced the endorsement from the union’s National Council of Coal Miners Political Action Committee (COMPAC) in a statement Thursday.

“We very much appreciate the support you have given both active and retired coal miners and their families, especially in such difficult times as the coal industry is experiencing today,” COMPAC International President Cecil Roberts and International Secretary-Treasurer Daniel Kane wrote in a letter to Portman.

The leaders said that COMPAC will “be actively working to elect you."

Former Washington Post reporter Carl Bernstein, who helped break open the Watergate scandal in the 1970s, told CNN: Hillary Clinton did not want her e-mails subjected to the Freedom of Information Act or subpoenas from Congress, and that’s why she set up a home-brew server. I think we all know that. People around her will tell you that in private if you really get them behind a closed door. I spoke to a number of top Democratic officials, and they’re terrified, including people at the White House, that her campaign is in freefall because of this distrust factor. And, indeed, Trump has a similar problem. But she’s the one whose numbers are going south.

Please...we need a change!

I wonder at what point do good law abiding voters realize Hillary Clinton should never be President?

When asked about releasing the transcripts of the speeches that Wall Street companies paid her big fat checks to come deliver privately, Hillary Clinton used every one of Patches O’Houlihans’s five d’s of dodgeball: dodge, duck, dip, dive and dodge!

When this first started coming up we thought, eh. When Bernie Sanders kept pressing it, we thought, eh. But this is the hardest we’ve ever seen Hillary Clinton work on anything. She really wants to keep those transcripts out of our hands. Which means we really, really want to see them.

Plus, sowing discontent among democrats is just good clean fun. Come on, release them, Hillary!!

White House press secretary Josh Earnest was asked Wednesday why the Obama administration opposed Republican senators applying the “Biden rule” to the most recent Supreme Court nomination.

“They say that’s the same case,” host Bret Baier said after playing a 1992 clip of then-Sen. Joe Biden arguing against nominating a justice during an election year.

The press secretary argued that Biden “also indicated” in the speech that if the president put forth a “consensus pick”, one that the democrats would completely agree with, he would “give that person a fair hearing in an up or down vote.”

“That’s precisely what President Obama has done this time,” Earnest said.

How could you fall for that?

This search for a conspiracy will take Mrs. Clinton down the road to perdition — to the end of her hopes. Along that road are instructions to a subordinate to divert all her government emails through her private server. On the side of that road are emails instructing her aides to remove "secret" markings from documents & resend the documents to her via a non-secure fax machine.

On that road are emails revealing the names of secret undercover intelligence assets, the locations of North Korean nuclear facilities, the transcripts of telephone conversations among foreign intelligence agents, & the travel plans of then-U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens in the days before he was murdered.

Democrats who indulge in Clinton's false hopes will do so at their peril. Don't they want to know of her potential status as a criminal defendant before they complete their nominating process? Or do they, like her, think that they can just hope that all this will go away?

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Wednesday appeared sharply and perhaps evenly divided in its first major abortion case in almost a decade, one that has the potential to revise constitutional standards and to affect millions of women.

Several justices seemed frustrated by gaps in the factual record presented to them. The three more conservative justices said there was little evidence that clinics have closed or would close because of the law.

Justice Antonin Scalia’s death last month may have muted the prospect of truly bold action, but even a 4-to-4 tie would have enormous consequences because it would leave in place an appeals court decision that could drive down the number of abortion clinics in Texas to about 10, from roughly 40.

Aren't you ready for a change?

Gratuitous. Nasty. Petty. Spiteful. Insulting. Just plain rude. When the rhetoric of a major party’s leading presidential candidate falls to this level, we should be scornful.

So, how is it OK when it isn’t just a presidential candidate, but a president, who does it?

Donald Trump’s policy of demeaning and snarking his political opponents has been a favorite habit of President Obama for the last eight years. Obama is perhaps the first president who believes that leading the country and playing to the beliefs of the extremists in his own party amount to the same thing, and like Trump fans, Obama fans are motivated in large degree by sheer hatred.

They love to hear their idol channel their rage by bashing people they don’t like.

Ratings plummeted into the toilet for TLC’s show, All-American Muslims. The show, supported by the terrorism-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) & other pro-Islam organizations, was used to portray active Muslim families, who are strict followers of their faith, as a peaceful community. Yet, Americans don’t want to watch such nonsense.

With such low ratings, Lowe’s decided to DROP them as a sponsor!

Lowe’s is being attacked by the left for dropping the show, including newly elected Congressman Ted Lieu (D-CA), who called Lowe’s “bigoted, shameful, & un-American.” Apparently, in his mind, Lowe’s doesn’t have the right to decide where their ad dollars should end up, even if the show’s ratings were horrible. CAIR is furious about the decision, & called for a national boycott of the hardware giant.

Christian organizations, such as the Family Florida Association, have now offered Lowe’s their support...You?

If President Obama wanted a collegial relationship with the Republican Senate, he should have thought of that long ago, and if didn’t want to lose the Senate, he should have moderated his stances. What he did was cause hate and division. Now, he will pronounce himself shocked and saddened that Congress doesn’t want to hold his coat while he tries to remake the high court. The Senate should hold firm, and let Elizabeth Warren and her colleagues rend their garments and gnash their teeth.

Rather than simply focusing on Mrs. Clinton’s actions as secretary of state, the FBI investigation may be proceeding along two tracks: his & hers. So far, two areas of focus have been mentioned.

One is the possible abuse of highly sensitive information by Mrs. Clinton through her use of a private, unsecured server. The other involves possible violations of public corruption law: whether she & Mr. Clinton used her position as secretary of state to further the interests of the Clinton Foundation. When these two apparently separate tracks are looked at conjointly, two major questions arise concerning Mr. Clinton.

First, did Mr. Clinton, in fact, own, pay for & house on his property the server used by Hillary while she was secretary of state? And second, did Bill touch, read, see and/or use any of the classified documents that appeared on that server, & if so, did he have the appropriate clearances and approval?

Are you angry? Do you believe we need a change?

Wednesday, January 20, 2016

Presidential frontrunner Donald Trump recently responded to critics of his abrasive campaign rhetoric by saying he would “gladly accept the mantle of anger” because the government is being run by “incompetent people.” Voters, especially Republicans, share that sentiment.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that two-out-of-three Likely U.S. Voters (67%) are angry at the current policies of the federal government, including 38% who are Very Angry. Thirty percent (30%) say they are not angry at these policies, but that includes just nine percent (9%) who are Not At All Angry.

Pessimistic on the economy. Scared on security. And scared people get angry and defensive.

Our politics are stuck like Flick’s tongue to the school flagpole. Democrats defend Obama. Republicans loathe him. No one listens to anyone but shouts at everyone and generally, all stay surly. One of the most shocking stats: America’s mood on race now stands at a 20 year low, positive views on race relations plummeting 43% since Obama’s election. This is a stunning collapse under our first African-American president, an extraordinary tearing asunder of the conscience of our country on the watch of a man once perceived to have such great gifts to heal.

People have given up. Seven of 10 Americans believe the country is off on the wrong track. 73% of voters think the next president should take a different approach from Obama. Which explains, in part, the current state of the race for President.

So, who will bring in the change we need...because we need to change!

From CNN...

"Obama’s Legacy"

"In what was one of the most political “non-political” speeches ever given, last night President Obama attempted to define his legacy.

As usual, he chose to define himself more by what he is not than by defining what he is. He remains a political specter in many ways. He is not Clinton. He is not Bush. He is not “the Republican Party”. He is not Romney. And now, last night, he is not Trump or Cruz.

The problem with his strategy is he is exiting the office as not much of a president in the eyes of millions of Americans. Whatever he actually is, voters have had enough of it."

And enough of the progressive/liberal agenda! We need a change!!!

“Refugees should stay where the*****they are,” said Jerry Lewis bluntly. “Hey, no one has worked harder for the human condition than I have, but they’re not part of the human condition. If 11 guys in the group of 10,000 are ISIS—how can I take that chance?”

Lewis is not alone in this feeling; as of last month at least 31 governors rejected President Obama’s push to accept Syrian refugees into their states. Reports of ISIS now having access to a machine that makes American passports and recent revelations of the holes in our vetting system, borne out in the horrific San Bernardino terror attack, are just a couple of the factors legitimizing such pushback from the American people.

Lewis then said that President Obama was “never prepared” for ISIS and suggested that he was not a real leader…

“I think he’s great,” said Lewis of Trump. “He’s a showman and we’ve never had a showman in the president’s chair"

At least he's a leader...
