Huffington Post Columnist to Podesta: ‘Humiliatingly Inadequate and Inept Response to ISIS’

In the new WikiLeaks emails released today, a chummy relationship between liberal media operatives and Hillary campaign officials / the Obama administration continues to raise questions. Brent Budowsky, liberal columnist from the uber liberal Huffington Post, apparently attempts to direct foreign policy decisions through a direct line of communication with Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta.

Brent seems oddly chummy with Podesta, and even contacts him from what appears to be his personal email address, and directly from his iPad. In the email, Budowsky calls the U.S. effort against ISIS, “humiliatingly inadequate and inept.” Budowsky also mentions that he has contacted a number of other high ranking U.S. government officials on the matter. For someone so liberal, it’s surprising to see such frustration boil over regarding Hillary Clinton’s failed strategy against ISIS. But perhaps more shocking is the fact that a member of the liberal news media is attempting to direct foreign policy by contacting a number of high level officials, including Mr. Podesta.

Other documents show the campaign was working with “friendly reporters” at The New York Times and Politico who were willing to publish planted stories essentially worded entirely by the campaign. Sick stuff.

Republicans were looking for an October surprise, and they got one. We will have more on this and future releases as they become available. Today’s email trove is said to be the first of many in the coming weeks.

If You Tell Me You Supported Hillary, I Already Know Seven Things About You

UPDATE: THIS ARTICLE IS IMPORTANT TO READ ESPECIALLY AFTER TRUMP’S VICTORY, PLEASE SHARE

This article is being posted in response to a similar Daily Kos piece I read prior to the election attacking Donald Trump’s supporters. Considering the author thinks Donald Trump’s supporters are all racist, classless, misogynist, unethical, un-American and un-Christian, I’ll reserve the childish bigotry and pure hatred for those lesser publications. Since Trump’s election, we’ve heard the masses of liberals call Trump supporters these terms time and time again, and the mainstream media has gone on a non-stop “Fake-News” frenzy while accusing everyone else of being “Fake News.” Instead of participating in their crap, I’ll stick to the traits which I can pinpoint with some degree of accuracy, and avoid branding all of her supporters with such a broad brush.

For your enjoyment, here are the seven things I (probably) know about you based on your (now previous) support for Hillary Clinton (if you supported Hillary, go ahead and close your browser now – you definitely can’t handle reading this whole thing because you’re an ostrich and because she lost):

1. You don’t understand basic economics.

This one is perhaps the biggest giveaway, and I would venture to say a vast majority of Hillary’s supporters don’t have even a rudimentary knowledge of economics. For example, a higher minimum wage hurts the poor and raises unemployment, and higher taxes on corporations and on the rich (or anyone) hurts the economy and hurts the poor the most. Additionally, regulations stifle economic growth, and our debt is reaching unsustainable levels. We are also already in a depression which is being masked by low interest rates. We are one bad bank decision away from a global Great Depression that everyone will suffer from. Your excuse is to simply say “trickle-down economics doesn’t work,” but the sad truth is, you have no idea what you’re talking about. Trickle-down isn’t even a real policy, it’s a word Democrats made up. Oh, and by the way, if you’re an economist and you somehow don’t agree – you’re a Keynesian, and you’re about to lose your job. If you still don’t believe me, you’re probably a Hillary supporter, and you need to look these things up (use Google, or read any basic book on economics that wasn’t written by Karl Marx, try Thomas Sowell instead) – I won’t do your homework for you. Oh yeah, and despite all the media’s fear-mongering, the market is soaring after Donald Trump’s election – legitimate or not – you have to pay attention. If Hillary’s supporters knew anything about basic economics, they wouldn’t be Hillary supporters – period.

2. You are an insider, a statist, a corporatist, a fascist, a socialist, a corrupt financier, a communist, or just creepy.

At least to some degree, you have to be one of the above to support Hillary Clinton. It’s highly unlikely you could be anything else. Considering Hillary herself fits the bill on most of these titles, I would say it’s hard to imagine someone supporting her who doesn’t as well. Even her rival in the primary was a self-proclaimed, devout socialist. WikiLeaks has proven Hillary to be a massively corrupt liar who apparently associates with child molesters (at least we know of one for sure, Anthony Weiner) and people who perform disgusting rituals that I can’t even print here. Don’t believe me? That’s because CNN didn’t report it. Search Google for “spirit cooking” right now, and then ask yourself if this is normal. If you’re not creepy (and I don’t mean just sui generis), then you’re one of the other things in this list – I don’t know which is worse honestly.

3. You have trouble seeing the forest for the trees.

You see the words “higher minimum wage,” and you get excited without doing the research into the ramifications. Same goes for “free universal healthcare,” “free tuition,” and “higher taxes on the rich and big business.” You are unable to objectively analyze consequences of actions, and instead prefer to support what “looks good,” or “feels right” with no real thought process behind it. This makes you an ignorant do-gooder who contributes to the decline of our society. You also cannot see how biased the media is, because you are unable to discern truth from fiction. You can only absorb small bits of information at any one time, and your solution to the complexity of the world is to bury your head in the proverbial sand. You don’t see the corruption in the DOJ. You don’t see the corruption in the intelligence community. You don’t see the corruption in the White House. You don’t see the corruption with Hillary, Bill, and the Clinton Foundation.

4. You are a bigot, you just don’t know it yet.

Now that Trump has won, you’re calling everyone associated with him a racist. You know it – don’t hide it. You’ve slandered people on the right, and you’ve oppressed people who did not agree with you. You’ve dehumanized friends, family members and even colleagues by calling them racists, misogynists, homophobes, idiots, nazis and xenophobes. You did this, you know you did this, and you know it’s bigotry, you just won’t admit it yet. In fact, you will comment on this article by calling me an idiot, or a moron, or something similar – but you’ll provide exactly zero evidence to contradict anything contained herein. Meanwhile, you’re totally clueless about the bigoted, racist emails from Hillary’s camp in the WikiLeaks releases. Apparently they hate Latinos, blacks, Catholics, evangelicals, southerners, young people, and of course, Trump supporters. You think Donald Trump and his supporters are all these terrible things, but you’re a hypocrite, and so is Hillary. You call Donald a misogynist even though Hillary attacked, silenced and ridiculed her husband’s rape-victims, and even though she takes millions of dollars from men who abuse and murder women in the middle east, and even though Hillary defended a child rapist and laughed about it when she was an attorney. You call him a racist even though Hillary says we need to “bring blacks to heel.” You call him a xenophobe and a nazi even though more Americans in Israel voted for Trump than Hillary. You call him a homophobe even though Trump wants to stop Islamic extremists from murdering members of the LGBTQ community, and even though he supports gay marriage, unlike Hillary. You call him corrupt when Hillary is easily the most corrupt person to ever run for President of the United States. You call him a liar while Trump represents the first bastion of truth we’ve had in American politics in decades. You say his university is a fraud, while tens of thousands of students claim they “loved it” and only a couple who disliked it were touted by a partisan law firm with ties to Hillary. You say he’s had bankruptcies, meanwhile he has run numerous successful businesses, and bankruptcies do happen in business – Trump’s failures are spectacularly rare. You don’t know this, because you are an employee, not a business owner. Meanwhile, Hillary ran only one business, Whitewater Development Corporation. It was a complete fraud and a huge scandal, went bankrupt and brought down a bank with it. Hillary and Bill were investigated and many people were convicted of a deluge of crimes. Oh yeah, and she got away with insider trading, and possibly even murder – yup, the m-word, and she’s running for president. Being a bigot should be the least of your concerns.

5. You think blacks and Hispanics are inferior, and you support mass genocide.

Essentially, you’re the real racists, and you’re only one small step away from overtly supporting mass oppression and mass genocide. You dehumanize blacks and Hispanics, and assume they would be helpless without you. You call them things like “super-predators” behind closed doors (Hillary actually did this before she said we need to “bring them to heel”), but pretend to champion their causes at all other times. Meanwhile, you only care about your own image, and care little if anything for the minorities you indirectly denigrate. Democrats of old passed laws to designate blacks as “not-human,” while democrats of today pass laws to designate the unborn as “not-human.” By supporting Hillary you directly or indirectly support partial-birth late-term abortion (aka forcefully removing a viable baby and then murdering it out of the womb). You already support mass genocide and mass oppression, you just don’t know it yet. If you’re black, then you don’t know that blacks are significantly worse off under Barack Obama – and that Hillary’s campaign staff “joked” about smoking crack cocaine in order to research a speech for black people at the NAACP. If you’re Hispanic, you obviously don’t know Hillary’s campaign considers you to be “mindlessly loyal consumers” and “needy latinos.”

6. You are woefully ignorant of how business and taxes work.

It’s easy to get you riled up about Trump’s taxes, because you don’t know anything about taxes. You think when the government sends you a refund check it’s a gift from the Feds. You’re also completely ignorant about business, how it works, why it exists, and what it has done for our society. You are business illiterate, and you probably have a degree in communications, anthropology, sociology, or some other obscure liberal art (and you never branched out). You’re not upset about the fraud at Hillary’s foundation because CNN didn’t report it. Regardless, you don’t even know the difference between a charity and a for-profit business. You have no idea what “profit” even means.

7. You think the media is unbiased (except Fox News), and you think academics know everything.

Your ignorance of the bias which exists in the media and within academia is stunning. You think journalists and academics are inviolable, and you practically salivate when you read/watch a piece or read a study which you already agree with. You are very susceptible to the halo effect, and you value credentials over results. You have very little ability to think critically or rationally, and your success in life and in your career have suffered as a result of your poor judgement. You are voting for Hillary or you voted for her already without reading a single release from WikiLeaks. You don’t know that CNN is a fraudulent news organization, working hand-in-hand with the DNC and Hillary (the proof is in the WikiLeaks you didn’t read). You are brilliantly ignorant, and supremely egotistical with nothing to show for it. You are what I like to call, an intellectual with no judgement, or a thinker with no mind. You are sad and angry about this, because your lack of understanding of the world and how it works leaves you feeling frustrated and depressed. As a result, you attack and demoralize others who do not agree with your simplistic, naive ideals.

If you tell me you supported Hillary Clinton, I probably already know everything about you.

Oh, and Donald Trump won the election… get over it.

And good day, sir.

Me if Hillary Gets Elected and 10 Reasons Why She’s Bad for America

10 Reasons Why Hillary Clinton is Bad for America:

1. She’s definitely a serial liar.

Let’s face it – Hillary lies about basically everything. Her emails, Benghazi, her affairs, possibly her sexuality, Bill’s affairs, Bill’s alleged history of sexual assault (see: rape), her accomplishments, basic facts about her life, her foundation, her intentions, her personality, her positions, her accents, her smiles, her favorite food, and of course, her involvement in multiple possible murders. Which bring us to number 2:

2. She’s probably a serial killer.

They don’t call her Killery for nothing. The body count possibly attributed to Hillary and Bill is massive, and we’re not talking about war, we’re talking straight up premeditated murder – with big motives. If there was only one name or two we could give her the benefit of the doubt, but there are literally dozens and dozens.

3. She created ISIS.

Enough said.

4. She ruins everything she touches.

Libya, Syria, Egypt, Qatar, Turkey, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Ukraine, Russia. The list goes on and on, and now she wants to ruin our country too.

5. She is Keynesian.

Enough said.

6. She is a regressive, oppressive, statist, authoritarian, fascist, war mongering leftist.

Enough said.

7. She’s in bed with and funded by Wall Street and big business.

And she actively encourages corporatism while simultaneously criticizing capitalism (just like Hitler). Not cool.

8. She’s in bed with and funded by oppressive foreign governments.

Meanwhile she pretends to champion women’s causes while taking big checks from dictators and regimes who oppress women.

9. She’s a fake.

She represents nothing. She says she is for women, but she ignores and then attacks and buries her husband’s rape victims to further her own interests. She says she will crack down on Wall Street, but Wall Street pays her a fortune and funds her campaign. She wants to raise the minimum wage to get elected, but she knows it will hurt the economy. She pretends to know everything about foreign affairs, but she is leaving her post and the world in shambles.

10. She will ruin the economy.

Our fragile bubble economy is already on the verge of collapse. Hillary will continue the reckless monetary and fiscal policies of Obama, Yellen and their predecessors and throw our country into a deep, almost insurmountable depression. She will destroy millions of jobs and probably our currency, and she will bankrupt a huge swath of our citizens while enriching those very few at the top. Of course, she will blame capitalism for all this, and not her failed policies, shifting us further towards Socialism.

Imagining a President Donald Trump

Update: This is coming true… Donald won. This article was written back in May.

It’s 11:55am EST on Friday, January 20th, 2017, and Donald John Trump is being sworn in as the 45th President of the United States of America.

8567813820_32b8aa4810_b

After a bitter rivalry with Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump won the 2016 election in a landslide. Many blamed Hillary’s use of a private email server while serving as Secretary of State, others blamed her failure in Benghazi, still others blamed the onslaught of bad press she received after her biggest scandals were revealed. Not surprisingly, many former Bernie Sanders voters opted to vote for Trump, primarily out of spite towards the establishment in their own party. Regardless, the election is over, and Donald Trump is now our President.

Donald’s first day in office begins with a “make-friends” tour. A look at his cabinet reveals names like Chris Christie, Dr. Ben Carson, Rudy Giuliani, Carl Icahn and other well-known executives and politicians. He starts by contacting China, Russia, the UK and Mexico. Trump’s plan: rebuild our relationships, and blame the inaccurate press for his poor image around the world. His communications are a resounding success.

Unfortunately for Trump, the stock market collapsed and the U.S. and global economy entered a severe recession shortly before his inauguration. That said, his second task is to calm financial markets. Trump begins by contacting Fed Chair Janet Yellen – a difficult task considering he intends to “fire” her when her term is up. Trump asks Yellen to direct all efforts toward long-term stability of the markets, and to disregard short-term market movements. Yellen listens with trepidation, but ultimately agrees with his assessment. Trump’s orders are: no bailouts, no negative rates and no more QE.

The markets, now significantly lower, crumble even further upon hearing the Fed’s new plans. However, they ultimately rebound when Trump makes a speech on the economy. He starts with a basic, “I told you so,” but ends with an uplifting promise of real economic recovery and growth. His plan is to bring money and jobs back to the United States. He plans to create incentives for companies to repatriate their offshore assets, and proposes long-term sweeping regulatory reforms and tax cuts for businesses of all sizes. He also proposes abolishing the federal minimum wage in order to spur job growth.

In the months following, the markets endure extreme stress, but ultimately settle. Financial institutions of all kinds collapse, and technology companies with no assets and very little revenue see their sky-high valuations evaporate. Gold prices skyrocket, and real estate markets plummet.

Trump sets his sights on the ballooning U.S debt, and prepares a number of proposals for reducing the size of government on a massive scale – eliminating entire departments in the process. Trump assigns a “fraud and abuse czar,” and tasks him with the job of removing fraud and abuse across all federal agencies – starting immediately. Trump’s good friend, Carl Icahn, provides him with sage economic advice.

With their party defeated in the House, Senate and now the Presidency, many Democrats capitulate to Trump’s plan, willing to try something new. Trump is able to execute on sweeping changes, including a full repeal of Obamacare – a not-so-difficult task now that ballooning premiums and health care costs have become mainstream news. His plan to replace it: government assistance for those who are uninsured, but with pro-market policy changes aimed at dramatically lowering health care costs and health insurance premiums for all Americans.

To address the influx of Islamic terrorists and avert another 9/11  terrorist attack, Donald Trump issues a temporary ban on non-citizens from Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and other “high-risk” countries from entering the U.S. President Trump also begins the location and deportation process for millions of undocumented illegal aliens around the country.

After speaking with President Enrique Peña Nieto, Mexico has agreed to effectively “pay for the wall,” through a more favorable trade deal with the United States. Construction of the border wall with Mexico begins.

Before the end of his first year in office, President Trump asks the American people for their trust, “Stand with me through these difficult times, and you will see America great again – I promise.” The American people decide to take the plunge, and go all-in on President Trump.

Donald Trump Will Be Our Next President

5440002785_f802ecea99_o (1)Update: We were right. This article was originally published back in February!

It’s official, Donald J. Trump will be President of the United States in 2017.

With his commanding win in Nevada tonight, Trump has proven everyone wrong. The pundits said he couldn’t win. The GOP establishment said he would falter. His opponents called him names, and the media tried to set him up at every turn. Even Fox News tried to derail his candidacy at one point or another.

The reality is, Trump is the real candidate for change. The democrats had a candidate for change. His name was Bernie Sanders. Unfortunately for Bernie, the democrats don’t run an honest primary, and Hillary Clinton is being handed the nomination in a process that is anything but democratic.

Now that the democrats have foolishly eliminated their only chance of winning in 2016, they’ve also simultaneously handed the presidency to Donald. J. Trump.

Personally, I couldn’t be happier. This country cannot handle eight more years of incompetent big-government progressive entitlement-first policy. The democrats, and even some republicans have nearly put this country into bankruptcy. Donald Trump is right-it’s time to take our country back.

Trump is the anti-Obama. He’s anti-government. He’s anti-politically correct. He’s anti-media, and yet somehow, the media still loves him. From here on out, Trump is essentially guaranteed victory in 2016. Let’s hope he has only the best intentions in mind, and that he follows through with his promises. End the fed. Cut taxes. Reduce the debt. Save our economy. Stop the class and race warfare. Secure the border. Fix healthcare. Fix education. Let’s win again. Let’s make America great again.
