Here’s The Perfect Solution for Hillary’s Lying Problem

HillaryClinton-barksOriginally posted at CLASH Daily

By sharing the following story in Reno, Nevada, Hillary set herself up to reap what she’s attempting to sow in the worst possible way. Here’s what she said:

One of my favorite political ads of all time was a radio ad in rural Arkansas where the announcer said, “Wouldn’t it be great if somebody running for office said something, we could have an immediate reaction to whether it was true or not. Well, we have trained this dog. Well, the dog, if it is not true, he is going to bark. And the dog was barking on the radio and so people were barking at each other for days after that.”
I want to figure out how we can do that with Republicans. We need to get that dog and follow them around and every time they say these things like, “Oh, the Great Recession was caused by too much regulation, ‘Arh, arh, arh, arh!’”

“I think,” Clinton said, “we could cut right through a lot of their claims.”

First of all, isn’t it “Arf, arf, arf, arf?” Not only that, but she wants to cut through “…a lot of their claims” [emphasis added] with a truth-sniffing dog? How about we use that idea and cut through a lot of Hillary’s claims? After all, when it comes to mendaciousness Hillary Clinton has quite a long resume and is very proficient.

Take for example some of her better-known lies like being shot at by snipers in Bosnia, her email server, everything she’s ever said about Benghazi, and all things concerning Bill.

Now, Hillary is desperately clawing her way to the Democrat nomination. That’s why, the woman who claimed she and Bill left the White House totally broke, has felt it necessary to kick up the practice of prevarication to new heights.

Lately, while out on the stump, Hillary has been claiming that in America black kids are “harassed and humiliated” even shot because of the color of their skin and that in America in fear of being ushered back across the border from whence they’ve come, illegal immigrant families lie awake dreading a middle of the night knocks on door.

Also, without one shred of evidence, Hillary is claiming that LGBT people are fired from their jobs because of “who they are or who they love,” and women, who Hillary herself pays 72 cents to every dollar she pays her male staff, are victims of unequal pay in places other than her employ.

So, let’s just forget about the time Mrs. Clinton said that Chelsea was jogging around the Big Apple during the 9-11 attack, and instead, apply to Hillary’s more recent fits of fibbing her recipe to deal with Republican falsehoods.

Here is how it would go: Republicans get a dog and follow Sir Edmund Hillary’s namesake around and every time she says things like, “90 to 95 percent of my emails were in the State system.” The dog can let loose on a crazy Hillary barking spree.

Hillary claims that no classified information was in her private emails – the trained dog very publicly replies with a raucous Hillary-inspired “Arh, arh, arh, arh!”

Hillary reiterates that she thought the Benghazi attacks really did have something to do with a Youtube video, and the truth detectors issue forth with a stirring “Arh, arh, arh, arh!”

If Hillary Clinton wants to accuse others of lying, and believes she should have the power to set the rules about how those lies should be handled, Americans should accommodate that desire and bark like she taught us every time she speaks.

Isn’t it Time Republicans Linked the VA Scandal to ObamaCare?

If liberals deserve kudos for anything, it’s for consistently and successfully politicizing crises, perverting truth, and demonizing political opponents.

Thanks to Rahm Emanuel, America knows that the liberal mindset is to ‘never let a serious crisis to go to waste.’ Democrats are well-practiced at responding to disasters with political campaigns, because as Rahm attested, every calamity is another “opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”

A perfect example of the left’s penchant for exploiting misfortune is their obsession with gun control. 

A madman shoots up a movie theatre, school, or supermarket parking lot, and instantly the liberals attempt to influence public opinion by redefining a mentally ill person with evil intent as a need for the Second Amendment to be dismantled. 

And it works!

Democrats have done the same thing with immigration reform. In order to ‘do things they didn’t think they could do before,’ which is to widen their voting base by granting amnesty to anywhere from 11- to 30 million unlawful aliens, the left has taken an illegal incursion and turned it into an American racism problem. 

Disagree with amnesty and you’re branded a xenophobe.

On the other hand, feckless elected Republicans consistently fail to recognize the repeated God-given opportunities they’ve been given to shed light on the truth the left distorts for political gain. 

Liberals politicize disasters to advance an ideological position, and conservatives squander opportunities to rescue from exploitation policies that are detrimental to the future and wellbeing of the American people.

A glaring example of Republican failure to recognize a perfect opening to remedy a negative situation concerns the VA scandal and how it relates to the foreseeable fiasco of Obamacare.  

The VA scandal, without question, exposes the federal government’s incompetence to manage anything, most especially healthcare

In the midst of the implementation of ObamaCare, which is highly unpopular and doomed to failure, without the assistance of Republicans in Congress an argument for repeal is being made on the public stage via a VA-orchestrated debacle.

Yet, for some unknown reason, probably out of fear of politicizing a scandal involving America’s vets, Republican representatives have chosen not to link this healthcare scandal to ObamaCare with the same fervor exhibited by the left when tethering mental illness to gun control, illegal immigration to racism, and extortion to fairness. 

Let’s remember that it was Nancy Pelosi who did not hesitate to tie GOP refusal to fund ObamaCare abortion coverage to ‘women dying on the floor.’

With that in mind, why haven’t the Republicans in Washington inquired as to why liberals who claim they don’t like it when guns kill people seem fine when socialized medicine does the killing?

Rest assured, if the shoddy medical care that America’s veterans received from the Veteran’s Administration had been disclosed as the result of an official pilot study to test the feasibility and logistics of a large-scale government-run healthcare system, ObamaCare would never have seen the light of day.

Moreover, if it were Democrats who were looking to advance a policy initiative, based on the deficiencies that came to light as a result of the preventable deaths of 40 veterans in a Phoenix VA hospital, the VA scandal would have become the liberals’ number one tool of accusation and exploitation.

Still, Americans deserve an answer as to why, based on the findings of that unofficial VA ‘pilot’ study, the GOP refuses to use that specific example of bureaucratic failure to demand that ObamaCare be irrevocably repealed.

But despite the obvious ‘teachable moment’ presenting itself that exposes the weaknesses intrinsic to government-run healthcare, Republicans, appalled as they say they are, choose to keep separate two issues that are really one and the same.

At this critical juncture, how easy would it be to reaffirm the left’s exploitation of 30 million Americans without health insurance merely to justify the weak argument that the American healthcare system needs socializing, which the VA has proven doesn’t work? 

And why not hammer home the point that the microcosm of the system Barack Obama touts as the answer to 300 million Americans’ healthcare woes has proven to be incapable of caring for at minimum 40 dead veterans who suffered and died needlessly while waiting for months on a secret list?

Instead, rather than point out what is powerfully evident and use the VA scandal as a platform to demand the repeal of ObamaCare, the right says and does nothing.

If this were a perfect world, regardless of party affiliation, honest politicians would lay bare the lies and tricks associated with any occurrence that the left uses to further their cause and demonize their opposition.  Then, rather than remain silent, they would actively focus on what the left has perverted and expose the truth of each individual issue. 

That’s why, if the fortuitously-timed death of poet Maya Angelou fails to provide the week-long cry fest Barack Obama has been praying for, the right should waste no time attaching the small-scale VA scandal to the impending large-scale catastrophe that is sure to accompany the full implementation of ObamaCare. 

But they won’t.

Unfortunately, what’s more likely to happen instead is that, to the detriment of the American people, while capitulating to every liberal demand, John ‘we’ve let them die’ Boehner and his passively complicit posse of pseudo-conservatives will continue throwing their hands up in resignation that ObamaCare will never be repealed.

A Plague on Two Political Houses

APTOPIX Mexico ProtestOriginally posted at American Thinker

In Shakespeare’s iconic love story Romeo and Juliet, Romeo’s friend Mercutio died after becoming an innocent victim of the feud between the Montague and Capulet families. Dying from a fatal wound, Mercutio declared, “I am hurt. A plague o’ both your houses!”

After enduring five years of Barack Obama and after watching and waiting in vain for the Republican Party to save America from ending up like Mercutio, “A plague o’ both your houses!” is an increasingly common sentiment for the two warring political parties presently holding the rest of America captive.

As Democrats offer up the nation as ransom in order to establish a lasting political power base and Republicans clumsily fumble around attempting to be all things to all people, the nation is being invaded by DREAMers whose vision for America is quite different from the one that Americans had hoped to pass on to future generations.

And as Eric Cantor, John Boehner, and Marco Rubio pass Barack Obama the bullets he needs to load the illegal immigration gun he’s got pressed to America’s temple, a 13-year-old girl was being gang-raped by a band of illegal aliens in Texas.  That’s right, 10 or more illegal aliens — part of the millions of illegals Obama and a battalion of immigration reformers want to make citizens of this once-great nation — cheered each other on while filming a little girl being repeatedly raped by a gang of criminals who had no right to be in this country in the first place.

According to police, the girl ran away from a group home and was picked up by three Latino men and driven to an apartment complex in Austin, Texas, where for hours she was raped by brutes who applauded themselves and each other while taking turns violating her and filming the offense for posterity using cell phones, possibly even “Obama phones.”

Two of the beasts that participated in the further psychological destruction of an already disturbed youngster, Juan Lozano Ortega, 25, and Edgar Gerardo Guzman Perez, 26, were picked up and have been charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child.

There is a simple lesson here:  When standards for criminality are relaxed for one reason or another, the fear of recrimination for other criminal acts is further decreased, putting everyone in danger.  The problem is that there are 11-30 million illegals in this country, and we don’t really know for sure who these people are, what they are capable of, or what type of unacceptable behavior they believe to be acceptable.

Ortega and Perez are both currently being held in the Travis County Jail on immigration detainers, which are defined as “a tool used by ICE and other Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials to identify potentially deportable individuals who are housed in jails or prisons nationwide.”

The fact all illegal aliens, including the millions deemed harmless and hardworking, are considered merely “potentially deportable” is precisely the reason this young girl was ravaged by this roving pack of fiends.

Not to worry, though — thus far the other rapists are probably somewhere in Texas peacefully DREAM-acting, occupying limited seating in an Emergency Room, or busily doing all those jobs Americans won’t do.

As Barack Obama refuses to take no-to-amnesty for an answer, on one end of the illegal immigration spectrum food stamp recipients are sending groceries to family in foreign countries.  On the other end, children are being gang-raped and American citizens murdered.  Meanwhile, Republicans are talking about extending “basic fairness” to individuals who are in this country illegally.

America is also being transported to an unrecognizable place, and the nation is being pillaged by a band of politicians who, in a quest for power, are participating in a gang-rape of America for their own selfish gratification.

In the process, amnesty-obsessed Democrats will continue to force 30 million illegals down America’s throat, some of whom, in addition to raping the system, are more than comfortable raping our daughters.  Meanwhile, the anemic Republican Party’s calls for compassion and promises of “common sense solutions” deliver neither compassion nor solutions to citizens being victimized by politicians who are basically aiding and abetting a massive invasion.

In Austin, in the early morning hours after the little girl was abused and used up by a posse of hoodlums who satiated themselves at her expense, she was driven by men (perhaps without driver’s licenses?) to a nearby neighborhood and told to “find somewhere to go.”  Isn’t that ironic, trespassers who shouldn’t be in this country, let alone this girl’s neighborhood, after raping her told her to “find somewhere to go?”

Subsequently she made her way to a nearby hospital and submitted to an examination which, based on her injuries, corroborated her story. As politicians in Washington were busy advancing America’s desecration, scarred and traumatized with her life changed forever, the girl ultimately made it home.

Sadly, when America attempts to crawl home there will be no recognizable home to return to.  The harsh truth is that if the Republicans and Democrats have their way, America, just like the tragic Mercutio who said, “Ask for me tomorrow, and you shall find me a grave man,” will be relegated to history’s graveyard.  So a dying Shakespearean character’s final words, “[a] plague o’ both your houses!” is a fitting wish to be visited on the two political houses cheering each other on during the ongoing rape of America.

Republican Revivification – American Thinker – February 19, 2010

Originally posted at American Thinker

A Colombian woman declared dead moved one of her arms just as an undertaker was about to introduce formaldehyde into the femoral artery of her leg.

After suffering a heart attack Noelia Serna was rushed to Cali University Hospital in Bogota Colombia.  Surviving on life support Serna suffered what some thought was a fatal second attack and was then declared officially dead. Transported to a local funeral home Noelia was just about to be embalmed when a funeral home employee noticed the woman moving her right arm.  Mortuary technician Jaime Aullon, put the embalming fluid down and stopped the procedure.

A hospital official said, “On rare occasions, a person’s heart rate and breathing can drop to undetectable levels, leading doctors to erroneously declare a patient dead.”   Juan Mendoza Vega member of the Colombian National Medical Ethics Board said, “It can happen.  But it’s not a matter of coming back to life because the person was never dead.”

As it is in life, so it is in politics.  Just one year ago, the Republican Party was one-step from being lowered in to a six-foot grave and having dirt shoveled onto its face. For the greater part of a year a distressed political party barely survived on life support. In an article entitled, Republicans in Distress: Is the Party Over? Time magazine, hyperventilating with anticipatory excitement, asked the morbid question, “So are the Republicans going extinct? And can the death march be stopped?”

Republicans suffered damage from George W. Bush’s war effort, a lagging economy, a collapsing housing bubble and an unrelenting media’s diligent campaign to remove food and hydration prematurely and disconnect the ventilator from a patient struggling to stay alive.  The initial blow was followed up by the historic election of Barack Obama, which equaled a massive myocardial infarction destroying all the remaining heart muscle necessary to pump the Party’s lifeblood.

Losing the White House, Congress and Senate to Democrat control meant, for all intents and purposes, Republican vital signs were no longer conducive to sustain life. While a weak pulse could still be detected, fifty-eight percent of those polled in an online survey agreed it was time to plan the funeral.

So as Barack Hussein Obama was sworn in with his hand on Lincoln’s tattered Bible, a snide group of political nurse’s aids wrapped Conservativism in a white sheet and lifted the lifeless corpse into a body bag for a trip to the mortuary.

For twelve long months, Barack Obama swaggered around Washington DC destroying the economy, raising the national debt and jeopardizing national security, while a prone Conservatism occupied the back of a political hearse. Barry apologized for America on the world stage, made nice with dictators and ate Wagyu beef after asking Americans to sacrifice for the common good – and did so while the Republican Party was being prepped for embalming on a cold stainless steel table by political ghouls anxious to lay to rest the party of Reagan.

Conservative radio host and one-time Republican John Batchelor declared the Republican Party a corpse. “The GOP is a mummy-wrapped skeleton sitting in its own chilly mausoleum of bilious resentments and creepy sentimentality.”

But a flicker of life remained.

Cal Thomas said in USA Today, “I guess if you were a funeral director… you’d be sizing up the coffin for the demise and ultimate burial of the GOP… like the reported death of Mark Twain, stories of the Republican Party’s expiration and extinction are premature and exaggerated.”

Like Ms. Serna, right before being injected with chemical fluid, something stirred in a Party about to have the lid closed on its decomposing ideology.  Instead, much to the shock and dismay of liberal funeral directors the “right arm” of the Party moved indicating vivacity in what was thought to be beyond revival.

What was dismissed, as a post mortem reflex, now appears to have the makings of full-blown Republican resurgence.  Inexplicably, “when the body was buried and molding, along came the Virginia and New Jersey gubernatorial elections, followed by the Massachusetts Senate miracle. It’s a Republican resurrection, some would say.” New Jersey, Virginia and then Massachusetts, one breath after another, one heart beat after another a political patient destined for a cold crypt slowly gained strength and vigor.

What happened? Who used the defibrillator on a waning party quarantined to the confines of political hospice?  In an Op-ed column entitled, Why the GOP Should Give Obama a Prize, conservative columnist Rich Lowry said, “In nine months, [Barack Obama] has breathed life into the Republican Party, boosted pro-lifers, tarnished the reputation of regulation, bolstered traditional values, increased the public’s desire for immigration restriction and shifted independent voters rightward.”

A snickering left got comfortable anticipating the reading of the will, ready to greedily collect all the proceeds of the political estate, but Republicans resuscitated by Obama’s leftwing, liberal policies spoiled the wake. Not the god Barack Obama devotees fancy him to be, “No, Obama hasn’t turned back the oceans. But revivifying conservatism almost before books announcing its death could be published qualifies as a feat almost as miraculous,” and on par with rolling away the stone and raising Lazarus from the dead.

A Reflective Indictment

obama mirror

The Bible says in Proverbs 27:19 “As water reflects a face, so a man’s heart reflects the man.” Not so with President Obama who fails to recognize his image in those he condemns and whose reflection reveals the high and mighty heart of a self-affected politician.

Take for example the President campaigning for health care reform by claiming, “Spiraling health care costs could bankrupt the American economy.” Now, as the bill in the Senate is on the cusp of being enacted, Republicans informing the public about details in the legislation are being accused by the harbinger of doom and gloom, Barack Obama, of dissuading public support by “frightening the American people.”  Obama’s perpetual fear mongering makes his reprimand of the GOP analogous to Freddy Krueger, admonishing Tinkerbell for terrifying children.

Every time the President steps up to the podium to address the nation about anything from health care to the economy, Americans involuntarily flinch anticipating the same reaction they get when subjected to a civil defense emergency siren.  And Obama thinks Republicans terrify people?

President Obama began his term by warning America that failing to act swiftly on the economy would guarantee a crisis “unlike any we have seen in our lifetime.” Furthermore, it was Obama who cautioned that a “recession could linger for years” along with double-digit unemployment rates.  To avoid impending calamity, a futile $787 billion bill was passed, resulting in a lingering recession and the double-digit unemployment numbers stimulus promised to avert.

Obama was the one who sounded the alarm on “dire and long-lasting consequences” if government failed to pump billions of dollars into the national economy.  According to Barack, the nation was a fiscal Titanic and fear strategy was at work when he said, “I don’t believe it’s too late to change course, but it will be if we don’t take dramatic action as soon as possible.” Since then, Obama has steered the stimulus ship right into an economic iceberg submerging America in an ocean of economic ruin.

Dire warnings, cataclysmic cautions and urgent emergencies are what propelled an inexperienced three-term Senator from Illinois into the White House. Commencing with the inauguration, misfortune and crisis replaced hope and change. Freshly sworn in, and standing on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, the President segwayed from heartening Americans to forewarning of the rough road that lay ahead by saying, “In the course of our history only a handful of generations have been asked to confront challenges as serious as the ones we face right now.”

Obama also warned that, “…urgent dangers to our national and economic security are compounded by the long-term threat of climate change, which if left unchecked, could result in violent conflict, terrible storms, shrinking coastlines, and irreversible catastrophe.”  Ever vigilant, Obama stressed stabilizing the climate, “throughout the campaign and several times in his inaugural speech…in the same breath as preventing nuclear conflict.” The President’s ominous predictions left Americans wondering whether they should board up windows or build a subterranean bomb shelter.

Reserving the right to tamp down panic in the American community and in anticipation of imminent tragedy and wide spread epidemics, a President who accuses political opponents of using “scare tactics” declared a National Emergency for H1N1. Obama quelled fear by reassuring the country that, “As a nation, we have prepared at all levels of government, and as individuals and communities, taking unprecedented steps to counter the emerging pandemic.”  When Obama speaks, Americans visualize facemasks, quarantines, and life support yet, to date,  predicted pandemics fail to materialize.

Obama even played the death card in an effort to urge skeptical legislators to save people destined to expire without health care reform. The President cultivated visions of dead bodies whose blood would be on the hands of Congress by saying, “…more Americans would die if it did not act now on health care.” Yet, Obama continues to chide political opposition for being doomsayers in one breath, while in the next Obama warns America that without health care in a short time the richest, most powerful nation in the world, will go bankrupt.

Accusing Republicans of using “scare tactics” to trick Americans into rejecting his health care proposal, did not curtail Obama from venting ire toward chairman of the Judiciary Committee, John Conyers Jr.  Obama, a master of disparagement, admonished Conyers for what the President defined as “demeaning” statements that openly disagreed with administration policy on US involvement in Afghanistan and Iraq as well as controversy surrounding the single-payer system option in the health care debate.

In the whiny world Obama lives in even a modicum of political unease is considered hostility personally directed toward the Oval Office.  What John Conyers fails to comprehend is Obama alone reserves the right to humiliate adversaries, while demanding exemption from criticism himself. If there is belittling to be done, Barry single-handedly drives the process.  And why not, as Leader of the free world, the Nobel Peace Prize winner has had two years experience attempting to mortify G.W. Bush in every possible venue on the global stage.

Obama’s imperious mind appears firmly convinced that humiliating other politicians equals truth telling and exploiting anxiety to strong-arm policy remains solely an Executive right to exercise.  Scare tactics and degrading accusations are clearly reflected in Washington DC.  However, the guilty parties are neither Republicans, nor Democratic lawmakers who oppose the Leader of the Pack.  The fear based politics and demeaning character assassinations are evident in a President who condemns others, while failing to identify his own image in those he censures.
