U.S. Elections – July 26th, 2016

U.S. Election 2016: Emphasis added – five items in total…

“On the second night of the convention, a group called LGBTrump held an event featuring gay provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, during which a number of speakers – including Dutch MP Geert Wilders – charged that the left is focusing on “distraction” issues like wedding cakes and transgender washrooms while Trump is tackling the real threat to gays – radical Islam.” – Andrew Lawton, “Trump support more diverse than media admits” – Toronto Sun, July 26th, 2016.

“Furthermore, Trump might even ask for Congressional authority to make it easier to fire regular public servants over concerns that a lame duck Obama administration might shift political appointees who can be replaced by a Republican president into civil service government roles which are more difficult to uproot… ‘It’s called burrowing,’ Reuters cites Christie as saying. ‘You take them from the political appointee side into the civil service side.’…’One of the things I have suggested to Donald is that we have to immediately ask the Republican Congress to change the civil service laws, he continued. ‘Because if they do, it will make it a lot easier to fire those people’.” – Sy Mukherjee, “{President} Trump might seek new laws to fire Obama appointees” – Fortune, July 20th, 2016.

“One of Donald Trump’s political skills is giving widely condemned speeches… His post-Orlando jeremiad fit the pattern, but the speech was a little like Wagner’s music as described in the famous Mark Twain line: Not as bad as it sounds. There is something so inherently inflammatory in Trump’s delivery that he could read the Gettysburg Address and some listeners would wonder how he could possibly say such a thing.” – Rich Lowry, “Trump’s warning on immigration and terror is actually sound”, Jewish World Review, June 17th, 2016.

“If these progressives want to know what actual treason looks like, they should consult liberal lion Ted Kennedy, who not only allegedly sent secret messages to the Soviets in the midst of the cold war, he also begged them to intervene in a U.S. presidential election in order to unseat President Ronald Reagan… Kennedy’s message was simple. He proposed an unabashed quid pro quo. Kennedy would lend Andropov a hand in dealing with President Reagan. In return, the Soviet leader would lend the Democratic Party a hand in challenging Reagan in the 1984 presidential election. ‘The only real potential threats to Reagan are problems of war and peace and Soviet-American relations,’ the memorandum stated. ‘These issues, according to the senator, will without a doubt become the most important of the election campaign’.” – Sean Davis, “Ted Kennedy secretly asked the Soviets to intervene in the 1984 elections” – The Federalist, March 10th, 2016.

“Congress – as an urgent national security high priority – needs immediate access to Hillary’s 30,000 emails and should conduct an investigation on what she disclosed, when she disclosed it, and whether the information could have any relevance to, for example: Russia annexing Crimea, destabilizing Ukraine, threatening NATO, and cheating on the Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces Treaty… China committing acts of cyber warfare against the U.S. government, militarizing and attempting to annex the Western Pacific, and cheating on sanctions against North Korea and Iran… North Korea developing nuclear weapons and long-range missiles, making repeated nuclear threats and cyber attacks against the United States… Iran supporting terrorism, destabilizing U.S. allies, and developing long-range missiles, all in flagrant violation of the new relationship’ that was supposed to result from President Obama’s nuclear deal… ISIS launching increasingly destructive terror operations worldwide, including in Europe and the United States… If the bad guys know from Secretary of State Clinton’s emails that she and the Obama Administration are ‘weak sisters’ who will not respond to the above, and other provocations, it could explain much about the failure of deterrence, and the rising tide of tyranny and chaos in the world.” – Dr. Peter Vincent Pry, “Did Hillary reveal ultra-secrets?” – Family Security Matters, July 8th, 2016.
