The “Empress” Has No Clothes!

Hillary Clinton has been exposed as being out of touch with the electorate, especially young women, by turning far left in her views in order to get the votes of the left-wing of the Democrats, which seems to control the party today. She is trying to “Out Bernie” Bernie (the avowed Socialist) in her rhetoric directed to the Democrat base. Do the people believe her or do they just judge her as being an opportunist who will say and do anything just to get votes? Most Democrats in New Hampshire by a margin of 9 to 1 think that Hillary Clinton is untrustworthy as compared to her opponent Bernie Sanders, according to exit polls.

I'm sure the Democrats are ruing the day that they prematurely anointed Hillary as their standard bearer for president for the 2016 election. With all the scandals surrounding her (Benghazi, private e-mails, and the Clinton Foundation), unless the Republicans commit electoral suicide, she will be toast in the general election, even if she survives the F.B.I. Investigation.

A recent Quinnipiac poll asked people to mention the first word that comes into their mind when a name is presented to them. The three top answers when the name Hillary Clinton was posed was #1 – Liar, #2 - Dishonest, and #3 – Untrustworthy. These answers were verified by the Democrat voters in New Hampshire by voting for Bernie Sanders in a landslide. Quite an indictment of her and her candidacy.

If she didn't carry the name Clinton, she most likely would have been relegated to the scrap heap of history from the beginning. She feels that she is entitled to the Office of President and the Democrat establishment was blinded to her invincibility as the rightful heir to continue the policies of the eight years of Obama. I'm sure the powers-to-be in the Democrat Party are now having “buyers remorse”, in that they put all their eggs in one basket in the person of Hillary Clinton. Ironically, the Bernie Sanders candidacy, in which he was supposed to be a “stalking horse” for Hillary to make believe that she was not to be coronated by the Democrat establishment, has backfired. Alas, as what is happening, Bernie has struck a chord with many Democrat voters who are looking for an alternative for an ethically wounded and challenged candidate, Hillary Clinton.

If, after the over 100 F.B.I. Agents come back with evidence that crimes were committed by Hillary, she will have to drop out and an alternative candidate (I don't believe it will be Bernie) will have to be called out of the bullpen to carry the Democrat torch in the November election.

Whether or not Attorney General Loretta Lynch proceeds with a request by the F.B.I. to indict Hillary (word is that Obama will direct her not to proceed with an indictment) the leaks that will seep out and will be enough to kill her candidacy for president. She will then be exposed as the “Empress with no clothes”.

If Hillary prevails in her quest for president, the words of columnist Doug Giles seems to be prescient. He said, “The lazy barbarians with their gargantuan entitlement mentalities, are at the gate and they sure as heck don't want to be weened anytime soon from the government teat of mediocrity”.

Square Peg in the Oval Office

How many times have you bought into something that
has failed to perform as stated in the advertisement?
In this election cycle, extreme caution must be taken
to determine who you want to be the leader of our
country, requiring effort to inform yourself about the
candidate, rather than rely on emotional hysteria to lead
you into your decision.

People cheered when Fidel Castro seized power away
from notorious dictator Fulgencio Batista, dubbing him
champion of the people; but in truth, he was a wolf
dressed in sheep's clothing, who decimated the middle

President Barack Obama may not be a wolf in sheep's
clothing, but the end result is similar. The decline of the
middle class, due to demagoguery and putting a square
peg in an oval office.

I cheer Donald Trump for shunning political correctness,
but wary of the costume he is wearing, or whether he
will be another square peg in the oval office. Un-fit!

Black Votes Matter!

We've all heard the misguided phrase, by the black radicals, that “Black Lives Matter”, but after listening to the Democrat candidates for president, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, that phrase should be changed to “Black Votes Matter”. Both of them seem to be pandering to the black community in order to get them out to vote for them, come election time.

These two “Progressives” (a/k/a Socialists) not only seem to try to “out pander” each other about who is most able to meet the needs of the black community, but to all minorities in general. Of course, all their complaints are directed at the “evil” Republicans, who, they claim, are keeping the minorities down, and therefore, they would be the one's who will stop the assault on the minority communities. How absurd that a major political party (the Republicans) would purposely “throw any citizen under the bus” thereby alienating a large group of potential voters?

Those minorities have been mostly voting for Democrats, in fact, the black voters vote 90% or more for Democrats, and the Hispanic community votes around 75% for Democrats. I dare say, that these minority groups have been voting against their own best interests for lo these many years. What has the Democrat Party actually done for them for their undying support? Has the Democrat Party really lifted them up, or has the Democrat Party just been interested in getting their votes? The answer is obvious.

The passage of the “War on Poverty”, under Pres. Lyndon Johnson and the Democrats in 1965, was supposed to lift the minorities and poor people out of the“grasps of poverty”, but it seems that these “meaning well” pieces of legislation have caused many more problems for the minority/poor population over the past 51 years.

Some people have said that the breakup of the black family can be directly traced to the passage of the “War on Poverty”, whereby today, over 70% of black births are to unmarried black women with no father in the home, who then have rely on the government for subsistence (ex: housing, food stamps, pre-school and other welfare benefits). Most all of this legislation was pushed forward to fruition by the Democrats, mainly thinking that were helping the poor minorities and others. But, this legislation and government policies, have kept the blacks on the government “plantation”, thereby controlling their actions by controlling their lives. Generations have been hooked on the government “freebies” given out to the minorities/poor under the guise of helping them.

A major conundrum that has occurred is that the minorities and poor continue to support and elect political candidates who have kept them down ( the Democrats) over the years, thereby keeping them in poverty. You could say that the Republicans have been derelict in their duty of not being able to educate these people to see the benefits of the economic policies of the Republican Party, which will help them in their pursuit of living the good life, separate and apart from government handouts.

Yes, the pandering Democrat candidates are using that “something for nothing” appeal by twisting the meaning of “Black Lives Matter” to spin it to “Black Votes Matter”. Shame on them.

MORT’s meanderings

How lucky can Israel be to have such support from U.S. leaders?
Both the President of the United States and the Secretary of State have declared it out loud, time and time again:
                       “Israel has every right to defend itself”

Golly gee.  What more staunch allies or what greater proof of full support could the State of Israel ask than such righteous rhetoric being stated and frequently repeated by these two great statesmen and very honorable gentlemen, the tough-but-fair President Barack Hussein Obama and that super-wise diplomat, the erstwhile Secretary of State, John F. Kerry ?

Forget the oft-repeated personal insults aimed directly at Israel’s Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu by our Narcissistic, infantile president.  Forget the direct actions taken by this anti-Semitic, anti-Israel, anti-American POTUS to withhold military aid & support from Israel, America’s only true ally in the Middle East. Forget the bumbling John Kerry’s idiotic attempts to force a peace between the blood-thirsty lunatics calling themselves Palestinians and the rightful occupants of the original homeland of Jews for more than 5,000 years, when that land was bequeathed to the Hebrews by the Creator. Care to question the Creator on that point?  Forget all that.  The Jew-hating, Islam-loving Commander-in-Chief of our Armed Forces knows best.  His motto:  ‘Screw Israel 24/7 – 365’.

Count your blessings Israel. It don’t & won’t not get no better than this.

Who are the Real Fascists?

The word “Fascist” (a/k/a Nazi) is being thrown around willy-nelly today in describing Donald Trump. Is destroying the candidacy of Donald Trump worth all this scathing criticism and vile denigration of his person who has professed his love and loyalty for America?

Yes, sometimes the rhetoric of Donald Trump is over the top, and some of his views are not to your liking, but he's an American and he has the right to say what he feels about America and its policies and its leaders as do all of us. By expressing his views, as is his right, should that call for others to try to shut him down by calling him a Fascist, Nazi, or a Mussolini or Hitler?

Trump holds a rally for his supporters, and in the course of giving his speech, he gets interrupted by some groups of organized radical loons who want to shut him down, thereby violating his free speech rights. Trump sometimes responds in an inarticulate manner in condemning their disrupting actions, and then the Democrats and some sore loser Republicans proclaim that Trump is the cause of these disruptions. Oh yeah ! Here's the post on Facebook by that far-left progressive organization Move On. Org that lays out in detail what they planned to do at the Trump rally in Chicago. This post tells you who is responsible for these assaults on Trumps “Free Speech”. And I quote:

“Stand with Immigrants, Muslims, and People of Color ! Shut down White Supremacy ! Spread the word, organize everyone and get them to this very important protest. Everywhere Trump goes he and his racist mob must be shut down by the people”.

In addition to Move On. Org, other radical organizations and persons who complimented them in the disruption were LaRaza, Black Lives Matter, George Soros, Bill Ayers (former Weather Underground terrorist), and other Immigrant Rights groups. So much for spontaneity on the part of the protesters.

Have you noticed that most all this chaos is coming from the left-side of the political spectrum (mostly all Democrats) and not from the right side (mostly all Republicans)? This is a continuation over the past decade or so where conservative speakers have been shouted down or have been outright barred from speaking at many of the universities around the country. This academic radicalism has spilled over to the general public and has continued up till today at the Donald Trump rallies.

Of course, everyone has a right to free speech, but everyone's free speech rights doesn't apply when they deprive others of their free speech rights. That's a phenomenon of the liberals (a/k/a Progressives and Far-left groups) who use that precious right (handed down by our founders) guaranteeing us all of free speech as enumerated in the 1st Amendment of our Constitution.

I have recently attended a Trump rally and have seen these anarchists in action, and when they started acting up to disrupt, the local police and Secret Service, acted post haste in removing them to a safe place away from the rally, without incident or violence. Most likely, this will be repeated at future events as long as these fringe groups continue to announce their intentions of creating havoc in trying to shut or shout down Trump's speeches.

These radical groups have no place in a free country like ours. These disrupters are patently anti-American and a cancer on our society. They are the real fascists and not Donald Trump and his followers.

Math is a precise science in logic

Help me here 'cause I can't get a handle on Progressive Liberal logic.
For argument sake, there is the outrage over a dead lion and the predictable
celebrity protesters against using lab rats and other animals in experiments
to find cures and benefits for improving the quality of human life. Yet for
them it is permissible to terminate the life of a human fetus, to harvest its
organs for monetary profit for the same purpose. A termination that might
have given us another Einstein, Gandhi, Mozart or Martin Luther King, Jr.
Just to throw it in for another argument, doesn't a black fetus life matter?
Another bone of contention is the illegal criminal alien intruders they refer
 to as undocumented Americans, sheltered in sanctuary cities, mainly run
by Democrats.

I can't believe in four years, a Secretary of State never had classified material
in their communications, yet Hillary Clinton claims that all of her emails,
sent exclusively through her private serve, never contained classified items.
How can that be? I'm sure there must have been some transmitted by her
unsecured computer, or how else could they have gotten from point A to
Point B? Was Ambassador J. Christopher Steven's assassination caused
 by this?

Was her staff separating her private correspondence from government
emails cleared to handle top secret documents? I'm sure she didn't go
through thousands of emails herself, taking the time away from being Hillary.
The latest release of delinquent emails included a personal medical account
that she was physically fit to be president. There was no psychiatric evaluation
of her mental state to be president.

Math is a precise science in logic and the way her followers calculate her
qualities and ability to become president just doesn't add up.

No matter where you look or what you see or hear, some people are trying to make things seem better or different than what they really are. That is the tactic of putting “symbolism” over “substance”.

We see it used everyday, especially in the area of politics. A good example is the announcement that President Obama is going to cut $18 billion from the budget. On the surface, that seems like a very substantial amount of savings (I’m not against cutting waste, in fact, I favor it), but this amount is but ½ of 1% of the total budget he has proposed, which numbers over a trillion dollars of spending. He has hailed it as a major happening, implying that he is on top of extravagant, wasteful government spending. If you believe that, than I have a bridge in Brooklyn I’d like to sell you! That’s symbolism over substance, pure and simple.

Another example of using symbolism over substance, is in the area of climate change or environmental ecology. Some sanctimonious “Greens” and “Earth Firster's” etc., proclaim that they are cutting back on emitting carbon dioxide by driving a hybrid car, and then driving it back home to their multi-million dollar mansions that consumes electric at 20 times the rate of the average homeowner. Al Gore, the global warming guru, fits into this category of using symbolism over substance. He claims that since the icecaps are melting it will cause massive flooding along the coasts , but within the past few years he has built a large house near the Pacific ocean. I guess he should heed his own warning. But alas, he seems to be part of the fraternity of those that say, “Do as I say, not as I do”. Some might label that as hypocrisy at its worst. And it is! He should have gotten the Nobel Prize for duplicity.

Symbolism is used by both political parties to further their agendas, but the substance of what they propose is vague and sometimes non-existent. The “pandering” politicians will tell the citizens what they think the people want to hear, in hopes that the words will move them to vote for him/her on election day. Unfortunately, it must work, otherwise they wouldn’t indulge in the practice

Take the euphemistic acronym EFCA – “Employee Free Choice Act” – which implies that workers at a company will be getting a “free choice” to choose or not to choose their collective bargaining representative. There’s nothing “free” about it. If passed by the Congress and signed by the President, it will deprive the worker of his right to choose his bargaining representative by “secret ballot”, which is one of the foundations of our representative republic. The proponents of this bill, the unions and the legislators who are beholden to the unions, never tell you that. That’s symbolism over substance, and deceitful to boot.

The whole debacle over Obamacare was a good example of how politicians can manipulate the citizenry into believing something that wasn't true. Obama and his minions told us you could keep your health plan, you could keep your doctor, and that a family of four would save $2,500 a year on insurance premiums. All LIES, and a good example of symbolism over substance.

Don’t be fooled by the “snake oil” charlatans who think we are all deaf and dumb fools - let’s reverse it and put substance over symbolism - that’s the American way, or the way it should be. Don’t you agree?

MORT’s meanderings

Cloak & Suiters:  There was a time . . .
when a majority of the Jewish emigres from Europe, considered themselves fortunate to find employment in New York’s Garment district . . . sometimes called, ‘The Needle Trade’.  Often, the garment workers themselves, were referred to as, “Cloak & Suiters’.
Today, some 4 to 5 generations later, the descendants of those hardy people who earned their daily bread as ‘bushel-men’, hand-stitchers or by working 14 hr. days seated at a sewing machine, are no longer obliged to slave away under sweat-shop conditions.  
Today’s Jewish Americans have moved beyond the Garment Trade, having earned college degrees and secured employment in every aspect of today’s American economy, becoming doctors, lawyers and accountants or, entering into the fields of technology and business.
Some, have taken advantage of their success in professional careers and have chosen to run for elected office, seeking to serve as representatives of their neighbors and constituents.  Public service is a noble objective however, it is a totally different kind of occupation, unlike  any other type of endeavor. It requires strict adherence to the principles set forth in our most sacred document, the Constitution.  This document contains the guide-lines for governing our nation, at all levels.  Most oaths taken by public servants include the phrase, ‘ – to protect, preserve & defend the Constitution of the United States of America’.  It requires a very strong sense of patriotism, an unshakeable dedication to personal ethics and to the principles and tenets contained in that document.  Plus, one other critically important trait - that is, a deep and abiding sense of Faith in the Creator, from whom all our rights are derived.
This nation was founded upon the principle of citizens being elected by their peers, to serve all  the people for whom this government was founded.  Over the course of our two and a quarter centuries of existence, this experiment has undergone some significant changes.  That is to be expected however, the concept and the original intent has remained the same.
One of the not-so-good changes has been the notion that citizens serving in elected office have forgotten to serve a term or two and then, return to their civilian lives.  That idea has evolved into lengthy careers with some Legislators becoming permanent fixtures in the halls of the U. S. Congress.  The two party system and the vagaries of self-interest have also affected the concept of individual service and have instead, succeeded in diverting far too many public servants into becoming party hacks who put political party above patriotism and their sworn duty.  Hence, where we once had a majority of Jewish Cloak & Suiters, we now have way too many  Jewish TurnCoats & Unsuitables.  Sadly, the majority of these delusionals answer not to their constituents but, to the Democrat leadership in the Congress.  Barf, and barf, again!

George W. Bush Made Me Do It!

Bernie Sanders has been verbally hitting Hillary Clinton about her vote in the Senate giving Pres. George W. Bush authority to go to war in Iraq. She has claimed that, in hindsight and in trying to appease the left-wing of the Democrat Party, that she made a mistake and blamed, as usual, Pres. Bush for spreading false information. One problem with that explanation was that she had the same information that the Administration had and that Congress had. And on October 10, 2002, she made the following statement on the Senate floor.

“ In the 4 years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports
show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his
chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery
capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid,
comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda
members. It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam
Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage
biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to
develop nuclear weapons”.

She echoed the sentiments of her fellow Democrats such as
Bill Clinton, Jay Rockefeller, Madeleine Albright, Nancy
Pelosi, John Kerry, Sandy Berger, Joe Biden, Carl Levin,
Tom Daschle, Bob Graham, Al Gore, and Robert Byrd etc.
Were all those Democrats, along with Hillary Clinton,
taken in by George W. Bush?

The old expression of “You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time” certainly applies to Hillary and her fellow Democrats who supported regime change in the run-up to the invasion of Iraq in March, 2003.

Her disingenuous remarks about her support for the Iraq War shows why, in a recent poll, when people were asked what was the first word that came to your mind when the name was Hillary Clinton was offered, the first three responses were liar, dishonest, and untrustworthy. She has earned everyone of those adjectives. This was not a new phenomenon for Hillary to be depicted like that. Back in 1996, the late N.Y. Times columnist, William Safire, said the following about Hillary Clinton.

“American's of all political persuasions are coming to the sad realization that our 1st lady (Hillary) – a talented woman of undoubted talent who was a role model for many in her generation – is a “congenital liar”. “Drip by drip, like whitewater torture, the case is being made that she is compelled to mislead, and ensnare her subordinates and friends in a web of deceit”.

So her attempt at blaming George W. Bush for the actions that she took as a U.S. Senator, was just another “nail in the coffin” of her reputation of being a dishonest person.

We must not let her return to the White House as President of the United States. We can't afford another 4 years of the deceitful Obama Administration by electing Hillary who has championed the failed policies of Obama. Enough is enough.
