Well the first debate between our two primary presidential candidates is now in the can. And as far as I’m concerned it more closely resembled playing a poker game where only one player was aware the deck was marked. And as the debate progressed it didn’t take long for one to notice on whose side old Lester Holt was operating from. And while I don’t think Trump suffered any significant harm, being the political rookie that he is, there were plenty of missed opportunities that he could have used to blunt Holt’s effort to allow Hitlery to escape completely unscathed.
Holt had own his “Candy Crowley” moment, likely more than one if we’re being honest, at this the first debate of the 2016 presidential election on Monday night. And it was more than a little obvious that he bowed under the pressure from Hitlery’s campaign and the liberal media by “fact-checking” Trump on the question of his support for the Iraq War. Holt lived up to the expectations of his peers. But he lived down to the worst expectations of conservatives, who routinely see Republican candidates treated unfairly by these leftist debate moderators. When will we learn?
Again and again, Holt, the supposed unbiased journalist, asked Trump questions that were obviously taken straight from Hitlery’s campaign talking points, and which were obvious set-ups for Hitlery to attack (and for fact-checkers to pounce on whatever Trump asserted in his own defense). In addition, the audience repeatedly interjected — almost always in Hitlery’s favor — and Holt didn’t bother to stop them, though it was against the rules. He only stopped the audience when there were cheers for Trump calling for Hitlery’s emails. Take another bow, Lester. You did your job well.
Here are Lester’s five worst examples:
Tax returns. Holt never asked Hitlery about her e-mail scandal, about Benghazi, or about the Clinton Foundation and all of its rather dubious dealings. But he did ask Trump about his tax returns, arguing — not asking — that there might be questionable information in them that the American public deserved to hear.
Birther conspiracy theory. Holt never asked Hitlery about her past record of racist statements, including her “super-predator” remarks as First Lady, or her explicit appeal to “white Americans” in her 2008 primary campaign against Barry. Yet he asked Trump about the Birther conspiracy theory and cast it as racist.
Stop-and-frisk. After an exchange between the candidates over the policy of “stop-and-frisk,” Holt interjected to bolster Hitlery’s point by stating, erroneously, that stop-and-frisk had ended in New York because it had been declared unconstitutional by a court. Trump countered, correctly, that the new mayor had canceled the policy before the litigation was over.
“A presidential look.” Towards the end of the debate, Holt asked Trump about what he meant by saying Hitlery did not have “a presidential look.” He did so after noting that Hitlery had become “the first woman” to be nominated for president by a major political party, thus setting Trump up as a sexist. As Trump answered, Holt interrupted him, then gave Hitlery a chance to respond with her talking points about Trump’s past comments on women.
Iraq War. The question of whether Trump supported the Iraq War or not has been widely debated. What is beyond doubt is that Hitlery voted for it. Holt only represented one side of the debate about Trump, and never asked Hitlery about her own vote.
I’ll admit my expectations regarding Trump’s debate performance were pretty low. There isn’t much call for debates in his current line of work. And, I can honestly say I’ve never voted for someone based on their performance in a debate. I’ve made my mind up well before that. I look at the fact that Trump is able to fill stadiums of 15,000 quite easily all the time while Hitlery struggles to fill a gymnasium with 200 people. Trump could have let it rip on so many different issues, but he chose not to. Perhaps he’ll bring up Bengazi, and so much more, next time.
And despite what we hear from the state-controlled media, Hitlery is far from being as pure as the wind driven snow. She is without a doubt the most evil person I've ever seen in politics. The Clinton Crime Machine is very much alive and well. Come this November 8 the choice should be very clear, we will either choose Liberty or we will choose Communism. It could not be clearer if you have watched what has happened to this country over the course of the last eight years. You will get to decide how it is that you and your family will be able to live out the rest of your lives.
Those able to recognize the fact that our country is in big trouble must also recognize that at least with Trump as president we would have a chance to make things better, whereas with Hitlery we’d have absolutely no chance whatsoever. Slick and Hitlery are two of the most corrupt people to have ever occupied the White House. There is absolutely nothing positive to say about either one of them. These two are nothing more than a couple of grifters. Hitlery has worked to shred our constitution and done all that she can to jeopardize our sovereignty as well as our national security.
And does anyone remember the Community Re-Investment Act (CRA)? That Jimmy Carter nightmare made even worse by ‘Slick’?. It was the Democrat scheme that forced banks to provide home loans to people they knew couldn't afford them. Bush tried shut it down but the Democrats wouldn't allow it. It was giving loans to people that couldn't afford them that created the bubble that inevitably burst. Our government backed those crappy loans and ORDERED banks to make them or be penalized. Would you ever loan money to someone you knew couldn't pay it back?
I think most sane people in this country, or anyone not a Democrat, are able to recognize the fact that we are rapidly approaching a very crucial of election. And the issue to be decided is one that could determine what sort of future we create for generations yet to come: Will the American people decide that socialism is no longer something we wish to experiment with? Or will they determine that it is working so well for us that we wish to take it even further? It’s at this point in time that my confidence in the American people to make the right decision is pretty low.
But that said, here are but a few facts to ponder as you consider who it is that you think would be the best person to be our next president.
1 - When Barry “Almighty” entered the White House, the U.S. government was $10.6 Trillion in debt. Today, the U.S. government is $19.5 Trillion in debt, and Barry still has several months to go until the end of his second term. That means that on average more than $1.1 Trillion will have been added to the national debt every year during his presidency. Think about the tremendous amount of wealth that we are stealing from future generations and for what? To make our economy appear much, much better than it would otherwise appear by systematically destroying our future in the process.
2 - As Barry prepares to leave office, the rate at which we are adding to the national debt is actually increasing. During the fiscal year that is just ending, the U.S. government has added another $1.36 Trillion to the national debt.
3 - Barry “Almighty” is on track to be the only president in all of U.S. history to never have a single year when the U.S. economy grew by at least 3 percent.
4 - The percentage of Americans with a full-time job has been sitting at about 48 percent since 2010. You have to go back to 1983 to find a time when full-time employment in this country was so low.
5 - The labor force participation rate peaked back in 1997 and has been steadily falling ever since. Today 95 Million Americans are out of the workforce.
6 - The “inactivity rate” for men in their prime working years is actually higher today than it was during the last recession.
7 - The United States has lost more than five million manufacturing jobs since the year 2000 even though our population has become much larger over that timeframe.
8 - If you can believe it, the total number of government employees now outnumbers the total number of manufacturing employees in the United States by almost 10 million.
9 - One study found that median incomes have fallen in more than 80 percent of the major metropolitan areas in this country since the year 2000.
10 - According to the Social Security Administration, 51 percent of all American workers make less than $30,000 a year.
11 - The rate of homeownership in the U.S. has fallen every single year that Barry “Almighty” has been in the White House.
12 - Approximately one out of every five young adults are currently living with their parents.
13 - In 1971, 61 percent of all Americans were considered to be “middle class”, but now middle class Americans have actually become a minority in this nation.
14 - One recent survey discovered that 62 percent of all Americans have less than $1,000 in savings.
15 - According to the Federal Reserve, 47 percent of all Americans could not even pay an unexpected $400 emergency room bill without borrowing the money from somewhere or selling something.
So there you have it. And while it all seems pretty much cut and dried to me, oddly enough it would seem that far too many Americans can’t quite seem to figure things out. Which, to tell you the truth, is more than a little scary. If you are able to look around you and not be able to see just how bad things have gotten, and how much worse things would get if we were actually to elect Hitlery, then I’m afraid there’s simply no hope for you. Think what you will of the man, but the only hope we have of being able to regain control of our country is to elect Donald Trump.
