Setting The Record Straight

No one having listened to Trump over the past year can ever say Trump has the silver tongue of a politician. That said, whether I agree with him totally or not.  Whether he acts like a street tough at times or not.  Most of his comments and allegations have been spot on and the general populace has responded to his message.  The reasons are many and varied according to who is speaking.  I do wish the man would stop jumping into the hot vat of oil. Hillary and her zombies are doing enough to try to bring him down without him adding more fodder to the fire.

However, that said it irritates me beyond measure when I see media and the RINOS jumping through hoops to grab the Clinton ring on her merry-go-round.  Especially when she is a career criminal that every time her mouth opens issues forth a lie.  Obama does as well but much more polished and smoothly delivered. (when the teleprompter is employed)    

It plain out angers me when we hear that Clinton is surging ahead in the “polls”.  What unbiased polls are out there that really are non-partisan or not pandering to the Clinton narrative of her ladyship from hades? Ignore the damn things and go on slamming the truth up the DNC “umm collective cave”.

The media is being signed, sealed, and delivered to skew every possible sentence to tear down Trump and constantly ram into public consciousness the narrative that two of the most blatantly anti-American, ideologically socialistic, and dangerous people who every held office want told.  If RINOS want to harp on the same, then THEY are also part of the narrative.

Setting The Record Straight on Obama’s Denigration of Trump

Obama has done his best to denigrate Trump in speeches this past week.  His comments have been blatant warnings standing as threats or calls of actions by his tools to make sure that the narrative on Trump is clear with no need for a written “executive order”.  

Let’s consider, the man known as Obama.  He held only a smattering of jobs after graduating and in the case of his community activist role, few mentioned any success on his part.  His voting and bill sponsoring history in Congress was abysmal for the brief time he was actually there.  His collegiate activities have been so shrouded in mystery that no one can find a single praiseworthy notation or article which shows that he was well liked, intelligent, and active.  

He has  demonstrated time after time his disdain for US laws.  Wonder if he remembers the following information from his time in Congress?

{House Ethics Committee:
General Prohibition Against Using Official Resources for Campaign or Political Purposes
Official resources of the House must, as a general rule, be used for the performance of official business of the House, and hence those resources may not be used for campaign or political purposes.  The laws and rules referenced in this section reflect “the basic principle that government funds should not be spent to help incumbents gain reelection.”

What are the “official resources” to which this basic rule applies? Certainly the funds appropriated for Member, committee, and other House offices are official resources, as are the goods and services purchased with those funds. Accordingly, among the resources that generally may not be used for campaign or political purposes are congressional office equipment (including the computers, telephones, and fax machines), office supplies (including official stationery and envelopes), and congressional staff time.

Among the specific activities that clearly may not be undertaken in a congressional office or using House resources (including official staff time) are the solicitation of contributions; the drafting of campaign speeches, statements, press releases or literature; the completion of FEC reports; the creation or issuance of a campaign mailing; and the holding of a meeting on campaign business. The same prohibition applies to any activity that is funded to any extent with campaign funds, even if the activity is not overtly political in nature.

The misuse of the funds and other resources that the House of Representatives entrusts to Members for the conduct of official House business is a very serious matter. Depending on the circumstances, such conduct may result in not only disciplinary action by the House, but also criminal prosecution.

“There’s a process that is used to allocate the costs between the DNC or the relevant campaign and the government,” Painter told ABC News. “The cost of the Secret Service is paid for the taxpayer.”  I don’t think this is controversial,” Painter said. “A president that won’t campaign for his own party isn’t the leader of his own party. If someone claimed that President Bush was abusing taxpayer money to campaign, we would have laughed at that.” In the case of political figures flying aboard Air Force One, as was the case today with Hillary Clinton and several of her campaign aides who also traveled with her, Painter said they did not get a free ride.

 Ummhmm right. So you are saying that congressional members are to be held to a higher standard than the President of  The United States? When in fact several in the last few years have been raked over the coals, investigated, and had to account for their activities under similar circumstances?  

So prove publicly that the Clinton campaign has reimbursed the taxpayers for the use of funds.  

More importantly explain how having the podium with the OFFICIAL seal is not blatant misuse.  On official business Obama has used the Presidential Podium around the world.  He stood in front of the DNC without the seal podium which is only right since it was a political event. Yet Hillary and Obama stood in front of her campaign group with the podium.  That was a blatant disregard for official business as well as clearly manipulation.

 

TRUMP SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT ON KHIZR KHAN

FULL ANSWER TRANSCRIPT:
STEPHANOPOULOS:
I don’t know if you saw this speech, but there was a man named Khizr Khan speaking at the Democratic Convention last night. His son, Captain Humayun Khan, was killed serving in Iraq. And he had some very tough questions for you. He said you wouldn’t have even let his son in America.
TRUMP:
He doesn’t know. He doesn’t know that. I saw him. He was, you know, very emotional and probably looked like a nice guy to me. His wife, if you look at his wife, she was standing there. She had nothing to say. She probably, maybe she wasn’t allowed to have anything to say. You tell me. But plenty of people have written that. She was extremely quiet. And it looked like she had nothing to say. A lot of people have said that. And personally, I watched him. I wish him the best of luck.
STEPHANOPOULOS:
What would you say to that father?
TRUMP:
Well, I’d say we’ve had a lot of problems with radical Islamic terrorism. That’s what I’d say. We have a lot of problems, where you look at San Bernardino. You look at Orlando. You look at the World Trade Center. You look at so many different things.
You look at what happened to the priest over the weekend in Paris, where his throat was cut, 85-year-old, beloved Catholic priest. You look at what happened in Nice, France, a couple of weeks ago. I’d say you’ve got to take a look at that, because something is going on. And it’s not good.
STEPHANOPOULOS:
He said you have sacrificed nothing and no one.
TRUMP:
Well, that sounds – who wrote that? Did Hillary’s scriptwriters write it? Because everybody that went out there, we also had John Allen who failed with ISIS. I mean, he was a general, Allen, General Allen. He went out. And he was ranting and raving. And then I read a report. He was in there for a number of months. And he failed with ISIS.
STEPHANOPOULOS:
You saw Hillary say last night, you don’t know more than the generals.
TRUMP:
Well, I’ll tell you, the generals aren’t doing so well right now. Now, I have a feeling it may be Obama’s fault. But if you look at ISIS…General McArthur and General Patton, they’re spinning in their graves. The generals certainly aren’t doing very well right now. And General Allen, after I saw he was on ranting and raving about me, who he never met, I checked up. Guess what. They weren’t so happy with him. He didn’t beat ISIS. He didn’t beat ISIS. He didn’t do even well with ISIS.
STEPHANOPOULOS:
How would you answer that father? What sacrifice have you made for your country?
TRUMP:
I think I’ve made a lot of sacrifices. I work very, very hard. I’ve created thousands and thousands of jobs, tens of thousands of jobs, built great structures. I’ve done, I’ve had tremendous success. I think I’ve done a lot.
STEPHANOPOULOS:
Those are sacrifices?
TRUMP:
Oh, sure. I think they’re sacrifices. I think when I can employ thousands and thousands of people, take care of their education, take care of so many things, even in military. I mean, I was very responsible, along with a group of people, for getting the Vietnam Memorial built in downtown Manhattan, which to this day people thank me for.
I raised, and I have raised, millions of dollars for the vets. I’m helping the vets a lot. I think my popularity with the vets is through the roof, far greater than hers. She’s done nothing. All she’s done is tell everybody that the vets are in good shape. They’re fine. And they’re not fine. People are waiting on line for seven days to see a doctor. She thinks it’s fine.

    Obama’s remarks, like all politicians is scripted. Trump’s are not. In all cases, Obama’s statements or pronouncements are 100% opposite of his intent and ultimately the net result. Trump does what he says he will do based on his record, and he does have a pretty good record despite some failures.

    Trump has warts. We all know it. At least he is truthful and that cannot be said about 99% in DC.

    Hillary couldn’t tell the truth if her life depended on it. The words Truth and Hillary don’t belong in the same sentence.

    I’m supporting the honest man in this fight who occasionally steps on his tongue and so are the majority of Americans.

  2. Uriel says:

    Exactly Hardnox. Whatever Trump has done as far as I know didn’t leave a trail of dead bodies or prison visitors in his wake. He didn’t encourage, provide our enemies with weapons, kill political adversaries, or start wars from his political maneuvering. He didn’t horde billions in gratis bribery payments or deprive millions of poor of needed help. He didn’t blithely send our family members off to war hamstrung by regulations and blatant corruption then strip them of funds and ruin their families for those who did return home.

  3. I.R. Wayright says:

    Trump has to quit stepping on his own dick. He can not compare the sacrifices of a military veteran, especially war veterans, with his business career. He should have said that he honored the sacrifices of our service members by contributing to causes that honored or helped them. Did he ever sleep in the dirt, mud or sand, not have a shower or clean clothes for weeks all while worrying about being shot, rocketed or mortared or being blown to bits just driving down a road? No. All he worried about was where his next super model was coming from.
    So many are counting on Trump to defeat Hillary but he is not inspiring a lot of confidence lately.
    What a ******* mess.

    • Uriel says:

      Agreed. He either learns to keep his responses polite and modicum of decorum or he is going to throw the election to Hillary. Unless that the was the plan all along, he needs to stop acting like a street thug and weigh his words.

    • Terry says:

      No, Trump didn’t make those “sacrifices”. But neither did Khan. His son did.
      The only sacrifice Khan made was to sacrifice his web page that showed his past connections to Clinton.
      Clinton and the Khans should be deeply ashamed for politicizing the son’s death.
