As we come within one month of election day, I thought it would be appropriate to make another plea to the American electorate. I did a post earlier this year about why I support Donald Trump. I consider this a sister post, only in this post I am making the case against Hillary Clinton. It is for the good of the Republic that Hillary Clinton loses this election. She has a history of corruption that dates back to her time as first lady of the United States. Clinton is the confluence of all of the worst aspects of the status quo: a corrupt party establishment, media bias, shady financing and a long history of immoral behavior.
The corruption in the Democratic National Convention was put on full display thanks to Wikileaks. In a leak of 20,000 DNC emails, it was found that the DNC worked against Bernie Sanders in order to ensure Clinton received the nomination. The Observer article notes that “the party’s rules, including the use of super delegates—who disproportionately endorsed Clinton before the primaries began—are intended to provide the Democratic Party leverage over the election process. Throughout the primaries, decisions were made by DNC officials to help Clinton build and maintain a lead over Sanders.” Clinton used the Democratic establishment to her advantage in order to drown out the voices of disenfranchised voters, who were hopeful of a Sanders candidacy. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the former chair of the DNC, was hired by Clinton after resigning in light of the subterfuge. It is worth mentioning that Clinton’s running mate, Tim Kaine, was the former chair of the DNC before Wasserman Schultz. When Donald Trump confronted Clinton in the second presidential debate on “not winning fair in square” in the primaries, he was speaking the truth. In spite of this, Clinton was vindictively smiling as Trump attacked her. She was smiling because she knows that she does not have to care. The whole world knowing that she was the beneficiary of a conspiracy within her own party will not affect her campaign. It is clear that Clinton has the Democratic establishment in the palm of her hands and is willing to unethically use its power and influence to her own personal benefit. Should she become president, one can only imagine what she would do with the IRS and the Department of Justice at her disposal.
With regards to media bias, it is clear that her associations with the media are more than just cordial. She is very chummy with reporters. Only look at how she welcomes reporters on her private plane to see how sycophantic the media is to her. She treats them like house guests, not journalists who have come for information. The press are embedded in Clinton’s campaign, given treats and goodies on board of her private plane. How can we expect the press to be objective in this environment?
Wikileaks also revealed that the Washington Post and the DNC actually hosted a fundraising event for Hillary Clinton. The Washington Post was having a party, and the DNC took the opportunity to see tickets to the event to donors. It would be illegal for them to hold a joint event, so they did not publish ticket prices as to avoid leaving a paper trail. Clinton has both the DNC and a major news outlet colluding to support her, yet another sad example of corruption in the media.
Bill O’Reilly of Fox News also claimed that news organizations have pressured their employees not to support Trump. Media organizations have threatened to terminate employees who support Trump. I don’t see why O’Reilly would fabricate that, given how bizarrely specific it is. It is not surprising given that Trump threatens the status quo and the interests of major news outlets.
Furthermore, there is evidence to suggest that Google has been subverting search results to favor Hillary Clinton. Google’s Eric Schmidt has publicly backed Hillary Clinton, and the bias in the search engine itself is obvious. Roger Epstein found that the search engine’s autocomplete function was showing positive results for Clinton while at the same time displaying negative terms for Trump and Sanders. For example, when the words “Hillary Clinton is…” are put in the search bar, the only results Google shows are “Hillary Clinton is winning” and “Hillary Clinton is awesome,” even though they were not the most popular searches for Clinton. Bing and Yahoo showed much more derogatory suggestions. Google claimed that its policy filtered not negative suggestions, but autocomplete showed “Donald Trump is dead” when the words “Donald Trump is…” was entered on the search bar. This tactic was also used to cover up Clinton’s recent health problems. Epstein says showing negative search results for one candidate and only positive results for another, you can direct people’s searches and alter their views on candidates. This is a subtle way that Clinton is using her allies to influence the way the electorate perceives her.
James O’Keefe’s recent video documents violence at Trump rallies that is traced to the Clinton campaign and the DNC through a process called birddogging. Birddogging refers to creating a sense of “anarchy” around Donald Trump that would undermine his political support. Scott Foval, the National Field Director at Americans United for Change said that “it doesn’t matter what the friggin’ legal and ethics people say, we need to win this motherfucker.” Foval and Clinton are certainly a match made in heaven. Or hell. Foval claims that he was participating in “conflict engagement” and that he is “starting anarchy here.” By “conflict engagement,” he means that he “pays mentally ill people to do shit. Make no mistake.” However, it is more efficient for him to call his union friends, because “they do whatever you want.” Foval said that “if you’re there and you’re protesting and you do these actions, you will be attacked at Trump rallies. That’s what we want.” Foval hired thugs to disrupt Trump rallies and provoke violence. The media would then play its part by branding Trump and his supporters as violent, saying that they needlessly provoked hostilities with their hateful rhetoric. “The media will cover it, no matter what happens,” Foval said. He gives the agitators “a script of engagement” in the hopes that “the crazies bite.” He said that there is a “central agitator training” which prepares the volunteers to start confrontations. He then sends them to wherever Donald Trump and Mike Pence have events.
In addition to this, Foval said that he was contracted to both the DNC and the Clinton campaign. He openly admitted to a conspiracy between the Clinton campaign and the DNC to incite violence at Trump rallies. Foval gave away the whole chain of command, “the campaign (Hillary Clinton) pays DNC, DNC pays Democracy Partners, Democracy Partners pays the Foval Group (Foval’s company), the Foval Group goes and executes the shit on the ground.” Foval is acting with the approval of the Clinton campaign. He also admitted to being an intermediary between the Clinton campaign and the DNC. Campaign laws do not allow for those two entities to interact with each other. Foval said that it is important to have a “double blind between the actual campaign and the actual DNC” so that “they can plausibly deny that they knew anything about it.”
At the Trump rally in Chicago, which was cancelled due to security concerns, the DNC clandestinely organized violent protests outside the event. Aaron Black, the DNC rapid response coordinator, said that “the Chicago protest where they shut all that, that was us.” A DNC operative has admitted on camera that the violent protests in Chicago were his doing. “None of this is supposed to come back to us…we don’t want it to come from the party,” added Black, whose actual name is Aaron Minter. It is unfortunate that the mainstream media won’t cover this story. James O’Keefe’s video is a smoking gun revealing how the Clinton campaign conspired with the DNC to rig the election by fomenting violence at Trump’s events. This was intended to give good footage to reporters in the media who favor Clinton. I find this unbelievably reprehensible and everyone who plans to vote should learn about this.
In addition to these despicable acts, Hillary Clinton’s financial backing reveals the degree to which she is in bed with special interests, particularly the large banks. Hillary and Bill Clinton made $153 million in speaking engagement between 2001 and 2015. The two made 729 speeches for an average payday of $210,795. The two also made at least $7.7 million for at least 39 speeches to big banks, including Goldman Sachs and UBS, Morgan Stanley, Bank of America/Merill Lynch, Deutsche Bank and Citigroup. Hillary Clinton, the Democratic 2016 front-runner, collected at least $1.8 million for at least eight speeches to big banks. Moreover, she refused to release the transcripts of her speeches. Wikileaks obtained excerpts of her speeches from John Podesta’s compromised email account.
When Clinton was asked about having “public and private positions” in the second presidential debate, she used Abraham Lincoln as an excuse for her dishonesty. An example of her being two-faced are her public and private positions on the Syrian refugees. She said in a speech to the Jewish United Fund of Metropolitan Chicago Vanguard Luncheon on October 28th, 2013, that Jordan “has hundreds of thousands of refugees and they can’t possibly vet all of those refugees, so they don’t know if, you know, jihadists are coming in along with legitimate refugees.” This is the same woman who wants a 550% increase in the number of Syrian refugees brought to the United States. Another example of her deception is with regards to her position on changing the tax code. She said in a speech to ECGR Grand Rapids on June 17th, 2013 that “we can become same money and become more competitive with a simpler tax code” and that the corporate tax code is “kind of a dinosaur waiting to be changed.” It seems that paying Hillary Clinton a quarter of a million dollars for a speech is enough to make her adopt Donald Trump’s position on an issue. She did not mention making the rich “pay their fair share” when speaking to special interests in private. I guess that is just her “public” position. This is why Trump confronted Clinton on not doing away with the carried interest provision in the tax code in spite of being a Senator for decades. “The reason you didn’t is because your friends take the same advantage that I do,” said Trump. It was her “private” position to keep the provision in place. Based on the excerpts from her speeches, Clinton will certainly take care of her donors when elected.
In addition to her speaking engagements, 59% of her campaign contributions are large individual contributions. If you do not make a large contribution to her campaign, she does not care what you have to say. Not listening to you will not cost her money. However, not listening to the big banks will cost her. Donald Trump does not have this albatross on his shoulder.
Hillary Clinton’s unethical behavior could use its own post. However, I will boil down the most important instances in recent memory.
The email scandal revealed Clinton’s criminal arrogance and the contempt with which she holds the rule of law. U.S. Code Title 18, Part I, Chapter 101, Section 2071 states the following:
The Podesta emails also revealed that Clinton campaign knew that the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia are funding ISIS. The reason why they do not say or do anything about this is because both of those government have donated to the Clinton Foundation. The Saudi Arabian government has donated between $10 and $25 million to the Clinton Foundation through June 2016. The State of Qatar donated between $1 and $5 million to the Clinton Foundation. How can we believe that she will fight ISIS when her foundation receives donations from their benefactors?
To conclude, a vote for Hillary Clinton would be a vote for the current system of cronyism, false promises, an inordinately powerful party establishment and a corrupt media. The reason the media in particular has gone all in for Clinton is because Donald Trump is going against all of parties that have a vested interest in maintaining the status quo. The lobbyists, corporations, big banks and media have created the current system to benefit themselves at the expense of the American people at large. If you really want to see the current system destroyed, then you would have to vote for Donald Trump. Trump was not a politician before this election cycle. He never made promises to constituents that turned out to be false, unlike Hillary. Trump will not be beholden to special interests when he is in office. He is largely self-funding his campaign and has not received millions from Wall Street, also unlike Hillary. Regardless of what you think of Trump, he is not a crook. If Clinton is elected, it will be the end of the rule of law in America. If she can get away with all of her crimes and become President of the United States, we cannot reasonably convict anyone else of the crime in our country. Furthermore, Hillary Clinton has threatened to start a war with Russia. The Russian government has started placing missiles near Alaska and has also asked that Russians living in America should fly back home. Donald Trump is the peace candidate, and hopes to make a deal with Putin. Trump has never taken part in destroying a country. He never conducted air strikes in the Middle East. He also never giggled about killing Muammar Gaddafi. I think these reasons are enough to inspire any American who loves his or her country to come out and vote to save the Republic.
