Brian Williams was suspended from the Network! YET he has been the ONLY JOURNALIST to ask ‘WHAT DOES TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK” MEAN? “WHO ARE WE TAKING IT BACK FROM”? Now we need someone to ASK! “WHAT DOES MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN” MEAN? IF IT’S NOT GREAT NOW, WHEN WAS IT?
I recently watched Smerconish on CNN. He brings on Michael Muskasey , former U.S. Attorney General. Now the discussion was on the never-ending emails of Sec. Clinton. That day the State Dept. says 22 of the emails will not be released because they have been deemed “TOP SECRET”! So among other things, Muskasey says, “well since the emails were not released at all, it’s apparent someone must have removed the classification in order to get them on the Secretaries server. That’s a Federal offense!”
I must admit that upon hearing it I thought about the relationship between Vampires and Radishes. A guy sees a farmer planting radishes and asks if he has been hurt with his crop of radishes like so many other farmers. The farmer says, oh these are not for market; it’s to keep the Vampires away. The guy says Vampires? There are NO Vampires! The farmer says, yeah these radishes really work! “
This email thing is just another Republican attempt to injure Secretary Clinton. She sat thru 11 hours before a house committee on her emails. The umpteenth investigation. And the only reason it was televised is because she INSISTED on it being televised. The committee wanted it to be closed-door. That way they could continue with baseless accusations and innuendo. But this way the American people saw EXACTLY what it was about. NOTHING!
I know we are in the so-called “Silly Season” of the political process. But it’s getting serious now. The press is SELECTING the Presidential Nominees. CNN talks about Donald Trump 24/7. Fox has an ongoing Reality Show with Donald Trump and is too stupid to know that’s the ONLY THING he knows! He is going to win and we lose. By the way I watched the last Republican Debate and as a Democrat, to me it was the ONLY substantive one they’ve had. Of course I didn’t agree with the answers but I did the questions. At least they touched on issues rather than, “did you hear what Trump said about your mama”?
The networks are picking the nominees AND THAT IS WRONG! And I’m a Democrat and should be ecstatic because the selection on Donald J. Trump all but guarantees a Democratic WIN! But it’s deeper than that. Donald Trump says “I’m going to deport 11 million undocumented people and they will have to come back thru this “beautiful wall” which I will build and I will get Mexico to pay for it”!
Now, I’ve already said I’m NOT a Conservative BUT! I thought one of the major tenants of Conservatism is “SMALLER GOVERNMENT”! If I’m right then WHY has NOT ONE so-called “Journalist” PUSHED Trump to explain at least one of his plans. How would that work WITHOUT increasing the size of Government? How much will the “BEAUTIFUL “wall cost? And HOW and WHY would Mexico pay for it? Not to mention the ex President of Mexico, says “that’s silly! Why would Mexico pay for some %^&% Wall?”
He wants to stop allowing Muslims from coming into the country? AT WHAT COST? Any fool knows WITHOUT them, defeating ISIS or DASH is perhaps impossible. So are WE going back in, because no matter what you think of Muslims they aren’t STUPID! Asking them to form a coalition BEHIND you since they ALL want to LEAD, and then tell them they are NOT WELCOME in our country? HOW EXACTLY does that work? He wants to “bomb the hell out of ISIS and take the oil”; does he understand that Iraq is a sovereign Country? How to you intend to TAKE the oil?
And EXACTLY WHEN was America GREAT since it no longer is? Was it before Political Correctness? Perhaps when John Wayne was kicking Santa Ana’s Ass at the ALAMO? EXACTLY WHEN?
And why would a war be a better strategy than the Deal the President made? Or the way our sailors were released. One candidate said it was a shame to see our sailors “stripped of dignity” with their hands over their heads. Why didn’t you ask “What would you have done?” Better yet, WHAT should they have done? Fight it out? And you do know that we were NOT the only country involved in this deal. And do you know what would happen if your first day in office you back out of the deal? So many questions, so few Journalists! ASK THE DAMN QUESTION ALREADY!
And when you had two CUBAN Senators, arguing over immigration has NOT ONE journalist brought up the “WET FOOT DRY FOOT doctrine! For those that may not know. You see if you are CUBAN none of this “crap” applies. All you have to do is reach “shore” hence “dry foot” and you are good to go and be eligible for FULL CITIZENSHIP IN ONE YEAR”. Government subsidies etc. Why do you think you don’t hear Florida Cubans exerting their formidable political influence into this argument? IT DOES NOT APPLY TO THEM. In other words they don’t have no skin in the game! “Wet foot” means if you are caught at sea you will be returned to Cuba. Yeah Right! Wink, Wink! Yet these two argue over “Dreamers” and a path to citizenship?
Aljazeera America filed Bankruptcy and will stop broadcasting in April! And it’s a damn shame!
Now we have to get our News from Screen Actors Guild (SAG) members! Actors!
We should insist they stay in a Holiday Inn AT LEAST once a year!
