Hillary took millions from the Middle East

Hillary Clinton OVERBITEAnd somehow that’s not massive news?

And somehow that’s not plastered across every newspaper above the fold for days and days all across the nation?

Can you say: the American Media Maggots “in the tank” for the Clintons and a Demorat presidential candidate?

From the DailyCaller.com:

EXCLUSIVE: Persian Gulf Sheikhs Gave Bill & Hillary $100 Million

by Richard Pollock

A Daily Caller News Foundation investigation reveals that Bill and Hillary Clinton received at least $100 million from autocratic Persian Gulf states and their leaders, potentially undermining Democratic presidential candidate Hillary’s claim she can carry out independent Middle East policies.

As a presidential candidate, the amount of foreign cash the Clintons have amassed from the Persian Gulf states is “simply unprecedented,” says national security analyst Patrick Poole.

To wit: over $100 million dollars.

The Middle East states are buying the Clintons.  And the Clintons don’t mind being bought.

“These regimes are buying access. You’ve got the Saudis. You’ve got the Kuwaitis, Oman, Qatar and the UAE. There are massive conflicts of interest. It’s beyond comprehension,” Poole told TheDCNF in an interview.

$100 million dollars paid to the Clinton Foundation from Muslim states in the Middle East — they aren’t doing this because of altruism.  Mother Teresa was altruistic.  And Catholic.  These gulf states are not.  They expect favors for cash.  Quid pro quo.

But wait; there’s more:

The FBI has reportedly launched a second investigation of the former secretary in addition to its probe of her private email server.  This investigation is looking into “political corruption” and is seeking evidence where former Secretary Clinton may have offered official government favors to foundation donors.

Most troubling for Hillary, however, could be Bill’s personal, five-year business partnership with Dubai’s authoritarian ruler, Sheikh Mohammed bin-Rashid al-Maktoum and his overall friendship with the rulers of the United Arab Emirates — a confederation of states that includes Dubai.

Again I ask: these headlines splashed across the top of newspapers across the country?

You know the answer to that.  The American Media Maggots, complicit in corruption — participating in it instead of investigating and revealing it.

The only hope for any amount of truthnfulness lies with the FBI and Director James Comey.

Driving

Time to leave a little bit-0-paradise down in San Diego, where if anyone is daft enough to ask the question “what’s the temperature today?” you get looked at like you’re a moron.  70 degrees, you gibbering mouth-breather.  Heh.

It’s a driving day back to the Sierras, all 604 miles of it.

Sanders wants Denmark socialism in the US

Demorat Free Candy & CheeseSocialist Bernie Sanders said, during the Tuesday Demorat debate:

You see every other major country saying to moms that when you have a baby, we’re not going to separate you from your newborn baby because we are going to have — we are going to have medical and family paid leave like every other country on earth. Those are some of the principles that I believe in, and I think we should look to countries like Denmark, like Sweden and Norway and learn from what they have accomplished for their working people.

What would that mean for the United States?  How well does Socialism work?  Let’s check with someone who lives in Denmark.

A man named Lief, from Denmark, wrote an email to Tom Sullivan, who hosts a syndicated radio show from New York, and used to be on my local AM radio station KFBK in Sacramento — where I happened to work in the 70s.

Lief wrote to Tom Sullivan:

Tom,

 I’m a naturalized US citizen from Denmark. Our socialism is not what everyone over here thinks it is. They tax everything that stands still or starts to move. When we visited in 2000 my wife and daughters went shopping and were pleased that there was no sales tax. My aunt tapped me on the shoulder and said it’s included in the price. 22%. Today it is 26%. When you buy a “new” car in Denmark the tax is 100% of the sales price, I kid you not. My cousin called me one Xmas 4 years ago, he had just bought a new S class. Price out the door, $226,000. His wife visited here for vacation this past July. She said my uncle just bought a new Chevy Cruz, $89,000 out the door. She said their income tax in 56.6%. add the social security/pension tax 8% = 64.6%. and that’s the minimum. The past prime minister hired a new minister of agriculture, (my cousin is a large farmer), she said with all the new regulation 1,400 farmers have gon branrupt and closed their business in the past 4 years. AZnd that is in a small county of only 5.8 mil people. Smaller than the Bay Area. Their healthcare is atrocious. My aunt needed a hip replacement. From the day the doctor signed the “papers” she waited 22 months for her new hip. My cousin that bought the “S” class had gone to the Dr. 5 times in 18 mos. complaining of stomach trouble. Finally he convinced the Dr. to order an endoscopy. He waited 6 mos, they found stomach cancer and they took out his  entire stomach. He needed follow up chemo treatment. They live on the mainland and the only place in Denmark that treats stomach cancer is Copenhagen. He flew there 3 times a week for 4 months. He died of starvation 2 years ago. He always told me, nothing in this life is free, let alone socialism…..how true

He later added … 

By the way,

I forgot to mention in 2000 when my cousin and I stopped for gasoline. I was having a hard time converting Kroner to Dollars and liters to gallons and asked him how much was a gallon of gas. He said $11.85…..Also, my younger cousin last month took their newborn to the hospital after 5:00 on a Friday. They told him the baby needed a blood test but the lab was closed after 5pm and doesn’t open up till 8 am Monday….OMG. My cousin that visited this last July said the baby is fine now but yes. You had better not get sick from 5pm Friday till Monday morning….Socialism at its best…

You may add the above to your post if you like.

As I’ve said before because it happens to be true: everyone thinks they can “do” Socialism better than the last guy.  Sanders, Obama, the Demorats, Progressives, the SEIU, Leftists, all think they can “do” Socialism in America.  And yes, better than anyone else.

As it is, the US runs out of cash in 19 days, on November 3rd.  The proverbial “debt ceiling.”  Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said that this ceiling will hit two days before it was anticipated.

Where, just where, is all of this cash going to come from?

NFL films, John Facenda and “The Autumn Wind”

The Autumn Wind is what we officially have now.  It’s football season.

Which reminds me.

Steve & Ed Sabol - A

Steve and Ed Sabol, recipients of an astounding 87 Emmy awards.  Does Steve, at this age, remind anyone besides me of Mark Wahlberg?

Persons of a certain age, myself mostly included, remember the great celluloid created by NFL Films, the brainchild of Ed Sabol and later helmed by his son, Steve Sabol.

Ed recently passed away in February of 2015 at age 98, and his son Steve in 2012 of brain cancer, at age 69.

But most closely associated with NFL Films was “The Voice of God,” that of John Facenda, who passed away in 1984 at the age of 71.

Facenda was associated as narrator of NFL Films as Don LaFontaine was to movie trailers — both voiceover men of extreme talent.

Here, as a memory of days gone by, is The Autumn Wind, written by Steve Sabol in tribute to the football season — and picked up and embraced by the Oakland Raiders as their unofficial team anthem, beloved by Al Davis.  This tribute was produced in 1974.

There will never be another John Facenda or the ground-breaking creativity of NFL Films.

P.S.

For more memories, let’s try The Power and the Glory by NFL Films and narrated by John Facenda.  Sure to bring back a flood of them.
