Politically Speaking – August 2, 2016
Last week’s column focus was the Republican National Convention (RNC), this week it’s the Democratic National Convention (DNC). What a difference. Yet that depends on who you listen to or believe. If you listen to the liberal media — CNN, MSNBC, ABC and NBC, etc. — coverage, the less than fair and balanced networks, “the spin machines” said the DNC Convention was wonderful, and what you heard of the coverage was positive and enthusiastic and the RNC Convention was negative!
In my opinion, in watching both conventions and in listening to the wrap ups, it was just the opposite. Below is what I saw and heard:
Starting with the first night, the evening speeches were given with not one American flag present. But fear not, I saw at least one Palestinian flag in the audience. At the same time there were reports of protesters spitting on and burning the American flag outside
Other highlights included retired General John Allen. While he spoke endorsing Hillary Clinton, DNC participants heckled him in anti war protests. That happened and the liberal media tried to sweep it under the rug.
Of course, let’s not forget the woman who spoke on abortion, and the parading of the child that belonged to illegal immigrants. Another one of the DNC highlights was the appearance of Michael Brown’s mother. Remember Michael Brown? A real upstanding citizen! To glorify this individual was a slap in the face to real heroes, our men and women in blue.
But pushing ahead, let’s not forget the other highlights, like the speech by Billy Clinton on the romantic courtship and marriage of Hillary and himself. (In my opinion, they are partners in crime.) Seriously, Bill Clinton used the White House as a romper room for his sexual escapades, but Hillary stood by her man.
And of course, let’s not forget, the endorsement of Barack Obama for Hillary Clinton was one of the top highlights. At least according to what I saw of him, during his speech he mentioned himself well over 100 times, and in the end alluded to voting for Hillary to keep his do-nothing last term going. And trust, she will if elected.
Of course, there was no mention of Benghazi and the lies she told the families of the victims. The last emails that disappeared — that probably put our national security at risk, among the other corruption and lies that Bill and Hillary have been wrapped in for 25 plus years — never came up.
It was a four day event full of attacks on Donald Trump because that’s all they have. They certainly can’t go on their record, either one of them. But let’s face it, conventions are all about showmanship. But in my opinion, there was no comparison between the DNC and RCN conventions. And by far the RNC Convention was above board, patriotic and full of worthwhile speakers, and yes, there were some things I disagreed with.
Not so the DNC, which I found unpatriotic, deceitful, dishonest and certainly un-Christian. In most cases it reached the bottom of the barrel, with a few exceptions like Mr. and Mrs. Kahn who lost their brave son.
But to top the whole four day event off, it was reported that right after the convention was over Wall Street Hedge Fund donors met with the Hillary Clinton Camp, and at this point they have donated $48.5 million to her campaign, compared to Donald Trump’s $19,000.
You want to tell me again who’s in the back pocket of Wall Street! And no, the liberal media won’t give you that. Hillary said they were following the money, and trust, they are.
There is a big difference in the two candidates. Donald Trump does Donald Trump, and Hillary Clinton does and says anything for a vote.
In the meantime, take time to go see Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party. It’s a documentary that would even keep Bill Clinton awake.
Until next week.
