Ted Cruz or Donald Trump? Let Jimmy Carter be your guide!

A lot of good people, including many friends of mine signed up to support Donald Trump for POTUS. That was understandable when Trump was saying great things about illegal immigration and the media was telling us Ted Cruz couldn’t win.

Hillary Clinton’s Email Problems: Growing Crisis Or Nothing To See?
February 7, 2016 – 7:25 am EST | No Comment

By: Roger Aronoff | Accuracy in Media

The media’s double standard has been on full display with a number of softball interviews and a staged CNN town hall held for the Democratic presidential candidates. The left-wing mainstream media are waiting to crown Hillary Clinton, even before the votes are in. MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, in particular, recently interviewed Hillary Clinton about her close victory in the recent Iowa caucuses.

At the very least you would have to say that the thrill up his leg that Matthews used to get for President Obama is now firmly in place for Mrs. Clinton. Matthews’ performance was no journalistic interview. Instead, it was a mutual love-in with Hillary, and the Democratic Party in general. It was as if Matthews was unaware of any of the developments in EmailGate or the Benghazi scandal, both of which have been very public. Yet Matthews uttered nary a word on his sycophantic network, MSNBC, about the substance of any of Hillary’s scandals.

Instead, he showered Mrs. Clinton with praise. “You know I think everybody should’ve been impressed, maybe I wasn’t impressed as I should have been—but everybody should have been about the way you handled New Hampshire last time around,” said Matthews to Mrs. Clinton.

Despite the fact that Matthews, and the rest of the mainstream media, would prefer to ignore the latest revelations in EmailGate, the drip, drip, drip of scandal continues. The day after Matthews’ interview with Mrs. Clinton, Fox News’ Martha MacCallum interviewed Republican Congressman Chris Stewart (R-UT) about Mrs. Clinton’s email controversy.

Stewart, a former Air Force B1 bomber pilot, is now a member of the House Intelligence Committee. He has seen the latest batch of Hillary’s emails marked Top Secret, and pointed out that there were more than just the 22 emails reported earlier. The total now comes to 29 emails that the State Department will not release.

Stewart was shocked at what he saw when he reviewed these emails.

“[These emails] do reveal classified methods, they do reveal classified sources, and they do reveal human assets,” said Congressman Stewart on Fox News. “I can’t imagine how anyone could be familiar with these emails, whether they’re sending them or receiving them, and not realize that these are highly classified.”

“Did Hillary Clinton demonstrate the judgment and the respect for protocol that would allow her to protect national security?” asked Rep. Stewart. “And when I read these emails and when I see how she has exposed some of the most sensitive information or potentially exposed that, I don’t know how we can say that she has demonstrated that judgment.”

Stuart condemned claims that the controversy over Mrs. Clinton’s private email server is a “right-wing conspiracy.”

“For heaven’s sakes, this is where Obama administration officials who have told us that these emails were so classified they can’t be released,” he said. “This wasn’t something that’s coming from the right; it’s coming from this current administration,” Congressman Stewart added. “So her argument isn’t with me, it’s with the President and with his administration regarding that.”

It was the Obama-appointed Inspector General who stated that some of Mrs. Clinton’s emails were Top Secret, and an Obama administration State Department that has concurred. As we reported, some of these emails contained material so highly classified that even the Inspector General’s team wasn’t originally cleared to see them.

But apparently few reporters in the mainstream media saw Rep. Stewart’s interview, or had any interest in hearing his perspective. You see, it’s only Fox News that cares about such trivial nonsense.

The Washington Post’s Fact Checker Glenn Kessler did note Stewart’s interview, but did so only in order to contradict his assertions. “Other sources who have viewed the emails do not describe the emails as strongly [as Congressman Stewart], though one official said Clinton’s aides might have put their security clearances at risk,” writes Kessler.

Kessler’s piece gave only two Pinocchios out of a possible four to Mrs. Clinton for her claims about how she handled classified materials on her private server. In the same Fact Checker column, Kessler cited a George Stephanopoulos interview with Mrs. Clinton. And while we’ve criticized Stephanopoulos in the past for his failure to note his conflicts of interest when it comes to the Clintons—including his obvious partisanship on her behalf by failing to ask her the tough questions—he does deserve some credit for a question he raised on his ABC show last Sunday. He talked about a non-disclosure agreement that Mrs. Clinton signed as secretary of state. This made it clear that whether or not the material is “marked classified” is “not that relevant,” since she has been “trained to treat all of that sensitively and should know the difference.”

Mrs. Clinton gave a nonsensical answer, stating at first that “Well of course and that’s exactly what I did. I take classified information very seriously.” And then in the same answer she reverted to her tired defense: “And when you receive information, of course, there has to be some markings, some indication that someone down the chain thought that this was classified, and that was not the case.” She’s trying to have it both ways.

I have reported extensively on the Hillary Clinton email scandal. And, yes, Mrs. Clinton did apologize—sort of. She apologized for using one device for her emails instead of two while she served for four years as secretary of state.

“As I look back at it now, even though it was allowed, I should have used two accounts. That was a mistake. I’m sorry about that. I take responsibility,” said Clinton in an ABC News interview last September. At a recent January town hallstaged by CNN, Mrs. Clinton insisted that she wasn’t “willing to say it was an error in judgment because what—nothing that I did was wrong. It was not—it was not in any way prohibited.”

In Thursday night’s debate on MSNBC, Chuck Todd asked about the emails, but not in any substantive way. He asked her, “So can you reassure these Democrats that somehow the email issue isn’t going to blow up your candidacy if you’re the nominee?” She said, “Absolutely I can. You know, before it was emails, it was Benghazi, and the Republicans were stirring up so much controversy about that.”

He then asked, “Are you 100 percent confident that nothing is going to come of this FBI investigation?” She replied, “I am 100 percent confident.” What does Mrs. Clinton know that the rest of us don’t? Has she been assured by the Obama administration that no indictment will be forthcoming? After all, President Obama emailed directly to her private email address on a number of occasions, and could get caught up in the scandal as well. Plus, indicting Hillary would create a civil war in the Democratic Party, perhaps opening the door to a Biden run, or a massive defeat in November.

Where is the apology for failing to turn over her emails in a timely fashion when she left office, or for doing business on an unsecured “home brew” server unprotected from Chinese, Iranian and Russian hackers? Robert Gates, the former secretary of defense under both President George W. Bush and Barack Obama, said that “the odds are pretty high” that Mrs. Clinton’s home brew server was compromised by China, Russia and Iran.

Instead, Mrs. Clinton has absurdly claimed that her server was secure becauseSecret Service agents were guarding the property.

Mrs. Clinton was also caught lying about whether she had turned over all her work-related emails when Sidney Blumenthal’s testimony before the House Select Committee on Benghazi revealed additional business-related emails that she had not sent to the State Department.

The drip, drip, drip of scandal has only gotten worse over time. We have now learned that there were more than 1,300 emails containing classified information that were either sent to or from her email server, classified as Top Secret, and some were classified as the even more secret Special Access Programs.

“You were out there on that arena, I remember you standing in I think it was a fieldhouse,” said Matthews during his softball interview with Clinton. “And you went on and on and on, it went on for five hours. It was incredible, it was a marathon, answering every single question of everyone in that room… Are you going to try to match that performance this time?”

No doubt Mrs. Clinton will be more than happy to answer further questions from the mainstream media. If Matthews’ interview and Chuck Todd’s debate questions are any indication, she knows that pertinent questions about her worst scandals won’t even be mentioned.

Article at TheWeek blatantly lies about Ted Cruz
February 6, 2016 – 6:06 pm EST | One Comment

Carter on Cruz

An “article” posted Thursday by Jeva Lange at TheWeek blatantly lies about Ted Cruz. And it is not the first time Lange has mischaracterized Cruz’s words.

The post, titled “Ted Cruz mistakenly claims Jimmy Carter endorsed Donald Trump,” gives the reader the false impression that Ted Cruz said former President Jimmy Carter would vote for Donald Trump. 

Lange writes:

Speaking to an audience in New Hampshire, Cruz told the crowd that former President Jimmy Carter had ‘endorsed’ Donald Trump in the 2016 race. ‘I am not making that up,’ Cruz assured them. Only, he kind of was.

Actually, he kind of wasn’t.

Ted Cruz was very clear that Jimmy Carter would choose Trump as the Republican candidate, if the choice was between Ted Cruz and Donald Trump.

Here is what Ted Cruz said in part:

“Jimmy Carter endorsed Donald Trump. I am not making that up. That is real. Jimmy Carter said yesterday – he said that between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz I would support Donald Trump.”

Watch:

Jeva Lange continued to say that Carter’s words were “hardly a glowing endorsement,” implying again that Cruz misrepresented his words, which is a blatant lie.

Lange continued,

“To endorse something is to declare one’s public approval or support of that person or idea, which was not what Carter, a Democrat, had done.”

And that is not what Cruz said Carter did.

But why bother with actual news stories when one can bash Cruz? Anyone who actually clicked on the video provided in the post would see that Lange was misrepresenting Cruz, but that did not stop the fake article to be posted all over Twitter.

Former President Jimmy Carter said in part:

“Trump has proven already that he’s completely malleable. I don’t think he has any fixed opinions that he would really go to the White House and fight for.”

On Senator Ted Cruz, Carter lamented that Ted Cruz has strong convictions in which he would pursue “aggressively.”

In an article published Wednesday at the UK-based Mirror, one of the captions on a photo of Trump standing with Cruz proclaimed:

“…[P]undits say unlike Donald Trump, Ted Cruz believes what he’s saying.”

Jeva Lange did not mention this part.

The bottom line is that Ted Cruz would stand for his beliefs, but the Socialists Democrats can at least work with Donald Trump. Jimmy Carter has reason to believe that Donald Trump would be “malleable.” Last month, Trump assured a crowd that he would make deals with the establishment.

Trump said:

“You know what? There’s a point at which: Let’s get to be a little establishment…We’ve got to get things done folks, OK? Believe me, don’t worry. We’re going to make such great deals.”

“Malleable.”

Jimmy Carter was also correct to say:

“On the other hand Ted Cruz is not malleable. He has far right-wing politics, in my opinion, that would be pursued aggressively if he wins.”

Consider the quote at TedCruz.org, where he explains that he is interested in drastically reducing the size of government (and explains what he will seek to cut with the help of Congress):

“We should shrink the size and power of the federal government by every and any means possible. What does that mean? That means eliminating unnecessary or unconstitutional agencies.” – Ted Cruz

This is evidently not the first time that Jeva Lange misrepresented one of Ted Cruz’s positions. An even more egregious falsehood was from an August article titledIn 2011, Ted Cruz told Republicans not to focus on birthright citizenship. Now he’s ‘absolutely’ against it,” Lange quotes Cruz as saying:

“As much as someone may dislike the policy of birthright citizenship, it’s in the U.S. Constitution,’ Cruz stressed. He went on to say that he believes it’s ‘a mistake for conservatives to be focusing on trying to fight what the Constitution says on birthright citizenship.'”

The actual quote, however, did not dismiss birthright citizenship as an important issue as implied by Lange. Rather, Cruz was making the case that  birthright citizenship “wouldn’t be an issue if we didn’t have people coming in illegally.”

Lange missed that part.

Here is the rest of his quote:

“I think we are far better off focusing on securing the border, because birthright citizenship wouldn’t be an issue if we didn’t have people coming in illegally. The way to prevent that is to secure the border now so that people are not coming in contrary to law.”

A Twitter user pointed out a link from anti-illegal immigration think tank Numbers USA from 2012 which illustrates that Ted Cruz was not a proponent of “birthright citizenship,” as Lange implies.

In fact, Ted Cruz is regarded as a “True Reformer” in opposition of illegal immigration:

Here is what Jimmy Carter said, which is REALLY what people should be discussing:

WATCH: Ted Cruz confronted by angry ethanol farmer; responds like a President (video)
February 6, 2016 – 2:08 am EST | 8 Comments
Ted Cruz confronted by farmer

Ted Cruz confronted by farmer in Iowa

Republican Presidential candidate Ted Cruz was confronted by a farmer in Iowa who accused him of planning to take away his ethanol subsidies while funding “big oil.” Cruz responded with a clear grasp of the facts surrounding the ethanol market and explained that he did not want any industries “across the board” to be dependent on the government.

Ted Cruz’s position on ethanol has been misrepresented over and over and over, but here it is in his OWN words.

As observed at IJ Review:

What was remarkable, however, is how Ted Cruz — through a calm demeanor and a deep knowledge of the subject manner — manages to win the farmer over…

“I hope the farmers vote for you,” the farmer ultimately said.

Whether or not the farmer will vote for Cruz, there is no doubt that he respected Cruz’s honesty.

It is not a stretch to believe that the “culture of kindness and courage” described within the Cruz campaign headquarters is a tribute to Cruz’s genuine dedication to the principles of morality found in Christianity.

Cruz being brave enough to stand against subsidies for ethanol also shows his dedication to the principles of limited government as envisioned by the founding fathers.

Watch the exchange:

The Council has spoken, the votes have been cast and the results are in for this week’s Watcher’s Council match-up.

Treason doth never prosper, what’s the reason? For if it prosper, none dare call it Treason. – John Harrington

Those who believe, and adopt exile, and fight for the Faith, in the cause of Allah as well as those who give (them) asylum and aid, – these are (all) in very truth the Believers: for them is the forgiveness of sins and a provision most generous. – Qu’ran, Surah Al-Anfal, 74

The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam. – President Barack Hussein Obama

This week’s winning essay, The Noisy Room’s Why Is Small Town America Being Inundated With Muslim Immigrants?, is her incisive look at yet another way President Obama is changing America… by flooding heartland America with Muslims from countries where the vast majority of the inhabitants have values and a culture totally inimical to our Constitution as well as our notions of freedom, tolerance and human liberty. Here’s a slice:

Looks like my old stomping grounds in Montana are heating up. People there are not taking Obama’s plan to force refugees on them lying down. There was a protest in Missoula, Montana at 10 a.m. this morning over that very issue. It is just one of many battles brewing out there in small town America.

Small towns in the sparsely populated parts of America are the perfect place to relocate these refugees. Especially, if your agenda includes politically terraforming the country. The West is historically conservative in their politics. Many are Republicans and Libertarians. Even the Democrats hearken back to an earlier time when they were more conservative in nature. Obama and the Democrats can’t have that. They need to have an entire country willing to submit to Marxist diktats. They need areas seeded with those who will vote Democrat and ensure that they stay in power no matter what.

And it’s not just voting demographics that are pushing this move either. I personally believe that there is a warped logic to all of this. That if Islam can be made the predominant religion in America, people will be more easily controlled. That’s insane of course and won’t work, but there you have it. Instead, Shariah law will be implemented and you will see the same atrocities occurring in Europe happen here. The big difference being, that at least for now, Americans are armed and will use those weapons to protect their neighbors, loved ones and country.

Bringing in the refugees also moves forward the Cloward and Piven strategy to overwhelm the system so it will collapse and cause chaos in the streets. These people want to tear the system apart, so they can replace it with something truly heinous. The Obama administration will never admit that this is the plan, but can you honestly look at what is going on today and tell me it isn’t? Our borders are wide open. We are not vetting anyone to speak of and security here in the US is worse than before 9/11.

Refugees1

Communities in states such as Idaho, Montana, North Dakota and Kansas are being infused with Muslim refugees even though they are not wanted by the residents or the local law enforcement. The feds and their leaders are not giving them a choice. Wyoming is the only state currently not participating in the program, but even the governor there wants to jump in it. Living in large cities would be too costly for the refugees and more can be accomplished with seeding them across the plains. In a small town, they can turn everything to their advantage in short order. Since many of our larger cities are already flooded with immigrants from south of the border and from Muslim nations, in many respects they have at least partially fallen to the ploy already. This is the fundamental transformation of America in play. South Carolina, Idaho, Minnesota, North Dakota and Michigan are vigorously fighting against this program and Obama’s ‘change’.

The same entitlements, jobs, lodging and freebies will be given to these refugees in small town America. But that will mean taking more and more away from locals in these same communities. These immigrants bring crime and disease with them. As crime rises, people will leave which will hasten the take over of these towns. At least that is what Obama and his friends hope for. I pray that people dig in and decide to stay and fight if they can.

Which brings me back to Missoula where they had a protest this morning in front of the county courthouse. Refugees are being brought into Helena and Missoula and the people there don’t want them. We’re talking about hundreds of Muslims. Other rallies in Twin Falls, Idaho and Fargo, North Dakota are planned as well. I have friends in Idaho that just won’t stand for this invasion.

It’s the same old story here. NGOs with lots of money and a pro-immigrant agenda are seeking out politicians who can be bought basically, or that can be forced into compliance one way or the other. These individuals, such as Sand Point, Idaho, Mayor Shelby Rognstad, conspire against their constituency until they are forced by the people to back down. The politicians in Missoula seem to have sold out to this movement. Oh, what I wouldn’t give to find out what each of them was offered in exchange for their support in resettling large number of Islamic refugees in their areas.

More at the link.

In our non-Council category, the winner was Tucker Carlson in Politico Magazine with Donald Trump Is Shocking, Vulgar and Right, submitted by The Noisy Room.

Donald Trump has his detractors, but no one can deny that he has struck a chord among many Americans. Tucker Carlson does a wonderful job of exploring why that is, attracting the deranged hatred of some of Politico’s rabid leftists.

Hillary Clinton endorsed by New York Times & Communist Party USA
February 5, 2016 – 12:52 am EST | No Comment
LAS VEGAS, NV - OCTOBER 13: Democratic presidential candidates Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) (L) and Hillary Clinton take part in a presidential debate sponsored by CNN and Facebook at Wynn Las Vegas on October 13, 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Five Democratic presidential candidates are participating in the party's first presidential debate. (Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images)

LAS VEGAS, NV – OCTOBER 13: Democratic presidential candidates Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) (L) and Hillary Clinton take part in a presidential debate sponsored by CNN. (Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images)

  • Hillary Clinton “…repair[ed] relations around the world that had been completely trashed by the previous administration.” (NYT)
  • Hillary Clinton “…will build on the achievements of Obama’s presidency.” (CPUSA)
  • Hillary Clinton “…led the fight in ensuring that poor women get federal funds to pay for their abortions.” (NYT)
  • Hillary Clinton will “defend the integrity of democratic structures, governance, and traditions [big government].” (CPUSA)

The very first sentence of the New York Times editorial endorsing Hillary Clinton trashes Republican presidential candidates as being the purveyors of “empty propaganda slogans.” While in comparison, Democratic primary voters who seek a “substantive debate over real issues,” the authors gush, “have the chance to nominate one of the most broadly and deeply qualified presidential candidates in modern history.”

As the ideological lines become increasingly blurred, perhaps an endorsement from Communist Party USA (CPUSA) is a positive step in the right direction for the progressively-indoctrinated youth vote. And clearly, the watchdogs are turning a blind eye.

Sam Webb, former national chairperson for CPUSA who currently serves as CPUSA’s public spokesperson says that although Hillary Clinton is not Bernie Sanders, she “will build on the achievements of Obama’s presidency. In other words, her White House will press for economic, social, and political reforms on a range of issues, including existentially necessary action on climate change.”

Webb, not the sharpest tool, warns ominously:

If the Republicans win the presidency, that firewall against far-right extremism that the Obama administration represented will disappear and the barbarians will be no longer at the gate, but likely in charge of the whole castle.

The NYT astonishingly praises Hillary Clinton’s efforts as Secretary of State, claiming that along with Obama and their shared vision, Clinton “allowed the United States to repair relations around the world that had been completely trashed by the previous administration.”

Hillary Clinton, according to the Old Grey Lady (who is most certainly not a lady) deals with the most “substantive” of issues like her support of gun control, regulating the “business establishment” and “the wage gap for women, especially for women of color.” Clinton also led the fight in ensuring that poor women get federal funds to pay for their abortions.

For his part, Sam Webb of CPUSA continues to say that Hillary,

“will fight for the full range of democratic rights – collective bargaining rights, wage rights, job rights, women’s rights, civil rights, gay rights, voting rights, immigrant rights, and, not least, health rights – as well as defend the integrity of democratic structures, governance, and traditions [code for big government].’

As an aside, the NYT also condescendingly trashes Republican candidates for having experience outside of Washington. One can almost feel the sneer:

“…it would be comical to watch any of the Republican candidates try to make that case [regulations for Wall Street and banks], given that they are all virtually tied to, or actually part of, the business establishment.”

On Clinton’s use of the military, the New York Times explains:

“…we have no doubt that Mrs. Clinton would use American military power effectively and with infinitely more care and wisdom than any of the leading Republican contenders.”

Webb laments that if a Republican wins the White House, he or she will “ramp up militarism, [engage in] climate change obstructionism, and the wholesale shrinkage of the public sector.”

Webb continues:

To make matters worse, this concentration of state power in the hands of the extreme right at the federal level is matched and augmented by its control of thirty state governments, ubiquitous voice in the major media, network of well-funded think tanks, pastors in the pulpits, energetic grassroots constituency, and nearly bottomless war chest – thanks to the Koch brothers and other right wing billionaires.

Which brings me back to the slogan ‘Bernie or Bust.’ If too many interpret it to mean Bernie or no one, least of all Hillary, it becomes an action (or inaction) that could well cede the country to right wing extremists.

Explain to this author what the difference is between the Democrats, the socialists and the Communists again?

Neither of the articles mentioned the Constitution.
