How Biased and Dishonest Is Lester Holt? Watch These Two Videos and Find Out | Mark Simone | WOR 710

After being outed as a registered Republican, Lester Holt had a lot to prove to the Left at last night’s debate. He posed questions to Trump right out of Hillary’s playbook, brought up the allegedly racist “birther” controversy, while ignoring Benghazi, the private server, the war in Libya, the nuke deal with Iran, etc., etc. He asked Hillary no follow-up questions, while hectoring Trump with questions about the Iraq war, his tax records, and whether he thinks Hillary looks presidential.

But Lester Holt has some history of campaigning for Hillary.

A Liar is a Liar

https://i1.wp.com/static6.businessinsider.com/image/56e065f291058422008b53b4-480/cokie-roberts-donald-trump.png

It must be plain to everyone –even Cokie Roberts — by now that our president is a liar.  Those with an open mind have known for years that the president is a liar, but others, such as Cokie Roberts, have steadfastly maintained that those who call the president a liar are racists.  They contend that statements such as “if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor”  were mere miscalculations, unforeseeable by our allegedly scary-smart president.

But in light of the fact that Mr. Obama communicated with his then- Secretary of State Hillary Clinton through her private email server using a  pseudonym –even though he claimed to have found out about her private email server by hearing about it on the news –there can be no doubt about whether or not the president is a liar. The President is a liar.

So why pick on Cokie Roberts, when every Democrat that breathes (probably still) maintains that the president is not a liar?

Well, it’s just that when Donald Trump made his conciliatory statement that “Barack Obama was born in the United States. Period”, Cokie Roberts called the idea that Obama might not have been born in the United States “racist”.  And the people that questioned whether or not Obama was born in the United States “racist” and “morally tainted.” This on the basis that Obama is the only African-American president, and the only president whose citizenship was questioned.

But the reason Obama is the only president whose citizenship was questioned is that the other candidates whose citizenship was questioned  –most recently Republican  senator and presidential primary candidate Ted Cruz, and before that Republican senator and presidential candidate John McCain –never became president. To claim that questioning Obama’s citizenship is racist on the basis of his being the only president whose “natural-born citizen” -ship has been questioned is therefore disingenuous at best. Given that Cokie Roberts is no dummy, she surely must know this.

And rumor has it –and had it at the time — that Chester A. Arthur was born in Canada.

Which made me wonder why Cokie Roberts –and the many others like her — is so touchy about Mr. Obama’s past, takes such strong personal umbrage, stamps her foot and excoriates those who disagree with her, even to the point of, surely, “protest[ing] too much.”

Cokie Roberts is a Mayflower descendant, whose family, the Boggs, later settled in New Orleans. Both of her parents were Democrat  members of the House of Representatives. Her father served in the House beginning in 1941, followed by a stint in the Navy during WWII.

Roberts grew up in pre-Civil Rights movement New Orleans, a place where racial segregation and Jim Crow laws were still the order of the day. The prevailing order was enforced by the Democrat Party, which had effectively banished the Republican Party from the state by 1890, through disenfranchising Black voters who were the Republican party’s main supporters. The Plessy v. Ferguson Supreme Court decision establishing “separate but equal” facilities for each race upheld a Louisiana law.

Two years after the Plessy decision, Louisiana passed one of the first laws officially stripping blacks of the right to register to vote. In essence, everything that could be segregated in Louisiana was. Public facilities for adults, including restaurants, hotels, night clubs, and cemeteries, were strictly segregated, as were public facilities for children such as amusement parks, playgrounds, and schools. By 1900, the line separating whites and blacks had become deeply entrenched in Louisiana’s culture. After 1902, New Orleans streetcars were segregated. A 1908 state law prohibited cohabitation (in marriage or domestic situations) between whites and blacks. Racial segregation in jails was required in 1920. Even in New Orleans, tolerant (if not friendly) interactions between whites and African Americans all but disappeared. The Catholic Church established a segregated parish in downtown New Orleans, the Congregation of Corpus Christi.

In Cokie Roberts’ home state, the unchallenged Democrat party was gradually forced by the courts to concede to African-Americans the rights they had had under Republican rule way back during Reconstruction, particularly in the Republican stronghold of New Orleans. So it is no surprise that the daughter of a New Orleans Democrat political family resents Republicans, and insists that she is on the side of the angels. She no doubt feels guilty about the way African-Americans were treated in her well-to-do and well-connected family’s home state. And she also no doubt grew up believing herself the moral superior of many white people she knew. Of course she sees segregationists and racists everywhere, even in those who just think a proven track record of lying increases the likelihood that what one says today is a lie. No wonder she so casually slanders those who think a liar lies, whatever his race. Or country of birth.

 

 

Federal Immigration Officials Working OT to Swear In As Many ‘Citizen Voters’ as Possible

An internal Obama administration email shows immigration officials are hustling overtime to get new “citizen voters” sworn in before the presidential election. As reported by Fox News, the email, from a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services field office chief in Houston, urges the unnamed recipient to swear in as many citizens as possible “due to the election year.”

She Lies! She Cheats! She Steals From Her Own Supporters!

The Observer reports that Hillary Clinton’s campaign has engaged in a pattern of stealing campaign contributions from her smallest contributors. In allegations confirmed by others, a Wells Fargo employee has revealed that Hillary Clinton’s campaign workers submitted multiple charges from the accounts of small contributors who intending to make a one-time contribution.

“We get up to a hundred calls a day from Hillary’s low-income supporters complaining about multiple unauthorized charges,” a source, who asked to remain anonymous for fear of job security, from the Wells Fargo fraud department told the Observer. The source claims that the Clinton campaign has been pulling this stunt since Spring of this year. The Hillary for America campaign will overcharge small donors by repeatedly charging small amounts such as $20 to the bankcards of donors who made a one-time donation. However, the Clinton campaign strategically doesn’t overcharge these donors $100 or more because the bank would then be obligated to investigate the fraud. 

“We don’t investigate fraudulent charges unless they are over $100,” the fraud specialist explained. “The Clinton campaign knows this, that’s why we don’t see any charges over the $100 amount, they’ll stop the charges just below $100. We’ll see her campaign overcharge donors by $20, $40 or $60 but never more than $100.” The source, who has worked for Wells Fargo for over 10 years, said that the total amount they refund customers on a daily basis who have been overcharged by Clinton’s campaign “varies” but the bank usually issues refunds that total between $700 and $1,200 per day.

After they contact the Clinton campaign without resolution, the source said, many victims will then contact the bank, which simply refunds the fraudulent charges.

The source also notes that the dozens of phone calls his department receives daily are from people who notice the fraudulent charges on their statements. “The people who call us are just the ones who catch the fraudulent charges. I can’t imagine how many more people are getting overcharged by Hillary’s campaign and they have no idea.”

The source said he’s apolitical but noted that the bank’s fraud department is yet to receive one call from a Donald Trump supporter claiming to have been overcharged by Trump’s campaign. “I’m only talking to you because what Hillary’s doing is so messed up, she’s stealing from her poorest supporters.”

Other victims have reported the incidents to their states’ Attorneys General, and one, whose son is an attorney, had to contact the Federal Elections Commission before the fraud was stopped. Based in Minnesota, this Clinton victim had her account at U.S. Bank charged multiple times after she made a $25 contribution, which was “all [she] could afford.” Her son Roger Mahre said:

If you and I did this, we’d be thrown in jail. This is theft, fraud or wire fraud—it’s a federal crime!”

But for Hillary Clinton, federal crime is just another fundraising strategy.

 

 

Death to America

Congressional hearings have revealed that that the Obama administration may have given Iran over $33 billion in cash and gold. Over the period Jan. 2014 to July 2015, Iran was paid $700 million every month from funds “previously frozen by US sanctions,” though it remains obscure how such payments did not violate the sanctions regime.

In testimony before the House Financial Services Committee last week, Mark Dubowitz, executive director at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, questioned the total amount of the payments made by the administration to an enemy country.

In total, “Iran may have received as much as $33.6 billion in cash or in gold and other precious metals,” Dubowitz disclosed.

New questions about these payments are emerging following confirmation from top Obama administration officials on Thursday that it was forced to pay Iran $1.7 billion in cash prior to the release of several U.S. hostages earlier this year. The administration insisted that cash had to be used for this payment.

Top administration officials were adamant that the cash payments were the best way to ensure that Iran got immediate access to this money due to its ongoing difficulty accessing international funds still sanctioned by the West.

No doubt. But why would “ensur[ing] that Iran got immediate access to this money” be in the interest of the United States? The State Department has since January 1984 designated Iran a State Sponser of Terrorism, which is therefore subject to restrictions on foreign aid,  a ban on military exports and sales, controls over exports of “dual use” items, and financial restrictions.  Sending pallets of cash and gold is not some clever way to circumvent the sanctions. It is a violation of the sactions.

According to former Pentagon official Michael Rubin:

There’s no reason it needed to be paid now. After all, successive administrations, both Democratic and Republican, have delayed payments so as to avoid funding Iranian terrorism,” Rubin said. “Likewise, if the United States freezes accounts linked to al Qaeda or Hamas, releasing it and saying, ‘It’s their money anyway,’ would not be a tenable explanation. Cash payments are highly irregular.

Monthly cash payments to Iran may have been part of the “confidence-building” measures agreed to by Iranian-born Advisor to the president, Valerie Jarrett. As reported at the time, Jarrett began quietly lifting sanctions against the terrorist state almost immediately after Obama’s re-election,  with the eventual aim of a nuclear Iran. According to a 2013 Daily Beast article by Eli Lake:

The Obama administration began softening sanctions on Iran after the election of Iran’s new president in June [2013], months before the current round of nuclear talks in Geneva or the historic phone call between the two leaders in September.

While those negotiations now appear on the verge of a breakthrough the key condition for Iran—relief from crippling sanctions—began quietly and modestly five months ago.

A review of Treasury Department notices reveals that the U.S. government has all but stopped the financial blacklisting of entities and people that help Iran evade international sanctions since the election of its president, Hassan Rouhani, in June.

No accomodation is too dangerous to the US and its allies, no payoff too costly, no deception too treasonous for this president.

 

 

“Generalistic” -ly Speaking, It’s a “Basket of Deplorables”

Maybe she was drunk. Or maybe she just had a little to drink, but shouldn’t be drinking at all with her medications.

What else could make her reveal – right out loud in public – her utter contempt for American citizens like she did Friday at yet another shindig addressing people she expects to vote for her without quibble or demur? That was our aspiring first female prez talking to an LGBT for Hillary gala in New York, and letting us all know that the people who support her opponent are, well – sniff –  just not our kind of people.

You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right?

The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic — you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that.

And unfortunately for Hillary, one of the most notorious was Sen. Robert Byrd (Democrat), whom Hillary identified as her “mentor.”  Sen. Byrd’s  membership in the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) was excused by Hillary’s alleged rapist husband Bill Clinton as just one of those things you do if you want to go into politics.

Talk about deplorable . . .

Hillary has also won the endorsement of Will Quigg. Quigg, as you’ll remember from all the media coverage, is a grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK)  in California. If Hillary has “disavowed” his endorsement, I didn’t hear about it.

Nor have I heard of her disavowing the endorsement of hip-hop artist Bobby Shmurda, currently in jail awaiting trial for murder.

And how very sad it is that Hillary – who wants to fill our country with people whose idea of LGBT rights is limited to the right to be thrown off a tall building, and then beaten to death should you survive the fall – expects the unquestioning support of gay Americans.

But no one should expect anything else from a greedhead who is a wholly owned subsidiary of countries whose hostility to gay rights is matched only by their expectations of official consideration from the  White House. They weren’t throwing all that money at the Clinton Tax Shelter and Slush Fund for nothing!

They Won’t Even Miss It

According to listosaur.com, Mexico received $757.7 million in aid from the United States in fy 2011. The total aid is currently lower, following cuts due to Mexican human rights violations, and the arrest of a US Marine who unintentionally entered the country with firearms.

But even so, there is still a more than sufficient annual sum to cover the cost of a border wall between our country and Mexico. So in effect, Mexico can certainly be made to pay for the wall, all Mexican avowals to the contrary notwithstanding.
