THAT MANY? Only 27 Percent of Voters Think Hillary Clinton is Honest

CBS News Hosts The Democratic Presidential Primary Debate At Drake University

Chuck Todd reported today that a mere 27% of voters see Hillary Clinton as honest and straightforward. That’s not a recipe for success in a presidential election.

The Washington Free Beacon reported:

NBC anchor Chuck Todd said on Sunday that only 27 percent of voters think Hillary Clinton is honest or straightforward.

“Just 27 percent of all voters and 52 percent of Democratic primary voters give Clinton a good rating on being honest and straightforward,” Todd said on Meet the Press.

Clinton has justified her use of a private email server when she was Secretary of State, saying that government officials knew she used a personal account.

“It was fully above board. The people in the government knew that I was using a personal account,” Clinton said.

Obama administration officials have contradicted Clinton’s claim. In a 60 Minutes interview, President Obama said he didn’t know that Clinton used a private server to conduct government business. Former Obama White House senior adviser David Axelrod also said he didn’t know that Clinton used a private server.

Many of Clinton’s statements about her private email scandal have been proven false.

Here’s the video report:

She’s lucky that anyone still finds her trustworthy.

Former London Mayor: Al Qaeda Suicide Bombers GAVE THEIR LIVES IN PROTEST

london

Liberals keep perpetuating the idea that we ought to have ’empathy’ for terrorists because somehow they’re victims of their environment. Earlier today on the BBC, that’s exactly what a former London mayor (Labour Party) said.

The Daily Caller reports:

Ken Livingstone, former mayor of London and member of Britain’s Labour Party, excused the terrorists who were part of the 2005 London terrorist attacks and instead blamed then-British Prime Minister Tony Blair.

Appearing on BBC Thursday, Livingstone, who was mayor of London at the time of the attacks, said of the suicide bombers, “Go and look what they put on their website. They did those killings because of our invasion of Iraq. They gave their lives, they said what they believed, they took Londoners’ lives in protest against our invasion of Iraq.”

He added, “and we were lied to by Tony Blair about Iraq, there were no weapons of mass destruction.”

Can you say ‘ISIS sympathizer?’

VA Spends More Promoting Obamacare Than CUTTING WAIT TIME FOR VETS

American Vets

This story is a perfect illustration of progressivism. The left is spending more money to advance their agenda than they are on people who actually deserve benefits.

The Washington Examiner reported:

VA spends millions promoting Obamacare, little cutting wait times

Officials with the Department of Veterans Affairs spent millions of taxpayer dollars promoting the Affordable Care Act to veterans who didn’t even need the coverage, but have dedicated relatively few resources to helping veterans on the agency’s long waiting list get access to their benefits, internal documents show.

The VA spent $6.125 million on brochures, letters and posters in an outreach campaign for Obamacare that ended last year, according to internal reports obtained by the Washington Examiner.

Scott Davis, a program specialist at the Atlanta VA enrollment center, said the VA likely spent much more than that on the Obamacare promotion campaign, given that the Atlanta enrollment center hired at least 40 additional staffers to push the health care legislation.

Records indicate the VA also spent money on Google advertisements, Spanish-language promotional materials and videos in an effort to spread the word about Obamacare.

The saddest part is that this isn’t surprising.

Hillary May Be Covering Legal Expenses For Company That Handled Her Email Server

hillary clinton

With the ever-growing list of things that Hillary Clinton has lied about, Republican Senators are now questioning if she is covering legal expenses for the tech company she hired to handle her email server.

The Daily Caller reports:

Republican Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley , the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, is questioning whether Hillary Clinton paid legal and public relations expenses for a former State Department aide and a tech company that worked on her private email system.

“As you are aware, such arrangements can pose conflict-of-interest issues,” Grassley wrote in a letter he sent on Tuesday to attorneys representing Clinton and several of her State Department aides, including Bryan Pagliano, the IT staffer who managed Clinton’s email system while she was secretary of state.

Grassley appears concerned that Clinton’s former aides and the tech companies she has hired to manage her mysterious email system would continue to work on her behalf rather than provide information on the email arrangement to investigators.

If this turns out to be true, it’ll be more bad news for Hillary and the Democrats in 2016.

Michigan Letter To The Editor: Progressives Are RUINING THE COUNTRY

Letter To The Editor

People all over America are starting to realize that the progressive vision for America may not be the best way to go. The letter excerpted below is from a newspaper in Holland, MI.

Take a look:

Letter: Progressives ruining this country

Our founders added the bill of rights to the Constitution to protect the people from the possibility of an overzealous government.

Progressives believe more government is the answer to almost every problem and they really do not trust the people.
This can be seen in progressives’ criticism of the court’s ruling in “Citizens United.” It is very clear that when our founders spoke of freedom of speech they primarily had political speech in mind. Yet in 2014, 54 Democratic senators voted to allow Congress and the states to restrict political speech. Why? Because they believe the common people are ignorant and will vote for whoever spends the most money in campaigns. Thus the all-knowing government should save the people from their own poor decisions.

Fifty years ago, the chant on college campuses was “free speech.” Today our progressive-run universities are awash in speech codes — can’t say something that may challenge someone’s preconceived idea of the truth. So much for the First Amendment — and “higher” education.

Being a good progressive, Marcia Meoli now wants to repeal the Second Amendment. Just how does she propose to confiscate guns from the many criminals who already have guns illegally? Let me guess, repeal the Fourth Amendment?

Read the rest here.

Wouldn’t it be great to see more letters to newspapers like this one?

Debbie Wasserman Schultz Agrees With Trump That She’s CRAZY TERRIBLE AND NEUROTIC

The Pro-Choice Caucus Discusses Implications Of Supreme Court Case Challenging Affordable Health Care Act

It’s not everyday that Debbie Wasserman Schultz agrees with a Republican, or with Donald Trump for that matter. But after Trump called Debbie “crazy, terrible and neurotic,” she said that she agrees with him.

Newsmax reports:

After Donald Trump blasted Debbie Wasserman Schultz as “crazy,” terrible,” and “neurotic,” the chair of the DNC confirmed that she is “proudly all of those things.”

In a fundraising email, Wasserman Schultz decried past comments Trump made Nov. 2 on Breitbart News’ new SiriusXM satellite radio show.

“This is a woman that is a terrible person,” he said at the time. “You have this crazy Wasserman Schultz — Deborah Wasserman Schultz — who is in there, a highly neurotic woman.”

In response, the DNC chair said, “In true Trump form, he failed to provide any explanation for this string of insults. But that’s ok. I’m going to provide my own interpretations.”

She then went on to interpret what were clearly insults as happy rays of sunshine — all in an effort to fundraise.
“Crazy,” she said, was in her mind, “Someone who unapologetically calls Republicans out when they prioritize the radical ideologies of the Tea Party ahead of the American people.”

“A Terrible Person” was “Someone who won’t stand for attacks on women’s health care, hard working middle class families, or programs that serve the elderly and economically disadvantaged.”

And finally, “A Highly Neurotic Woman” meant to her, “A woman who cares and works tirelessly and effectively at her job.”

It’s good to hear Debbie finally admitting it to herself.

OF COURSE: Obama Pushes Gun Control After Colorado Shooting

Obama Angry

In what has become routine after an act of gun violence, Obama is using the Colorado shooting to push for greater gun control.

Politico reports:

Obama on gun violence: ‘Enough is enough’

President Barack Obama on Saturday said that “enough is enough” in a statement released in the wake of the mass shooting at a Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic.

“The last thing Americans should have to do, over the holidays or any day, is comfort the families of people killed by gun violence — people who woke up in the morning and bid their loved ones goodbye with no idea it would be for the last time. And yet, two days after Thanksgiving, that’s what we are forced to do again.”…

“This is not normal. We can’t let it become normal. If we truly care about this — if we’re going to offer up our thoughts and prayers again, for God knows how many times, with a truly clean conscience — then we have to do something about the easy accessibility of weapons of war on our streets to people who have no business wielding them. Period. Enough is enough.”

Never let a crisis go to waste.

New Federal Rules Require Trans Homeless To Be Sheltered BASED ON GENDER IDENTITY

homeless

The transgender movement is now impacting homeless people.

CNS News reports:

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced a new proposed rule Friday that amends its Equal Access Rule to require homeless shelter operators to place transgender people based on the gender with which they identify.

“A person seeking shelter is already in a very vulnerable situation, and they deserve to be treated with dignity when they request our assistance,” said HUD Secretary Julián Castro in a statement. “This rule takes us one step closer to full acceptance of transgender men and women, and will ensure they receive the proper services that respect their identity.”

“Today, on International Transgender Day of Remembrance, we applaud the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for continuing its work to ensure the safety and well-being of transgender people and their equal access to emergency shelter housing,” National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR) Executive Director Kate Kendell said in a statement.

This is insanity.

NOT FUNNY: New Host of The Daily Show Gets TRASHED BY LIBERALS

Jon Stewart’s political value was huge for the left and they’re feeling his absence. Unfortunately for them, the new guy isn’t quite as good.

Inquisitr reports:

Trevor Noah has experienced a rough time since starting his hosting gig at The Daily Show. Everybody knew he would be ripped apart by the right wing media — that was a given. However, the left wing has ripped him apart as well. Salon now has become the latest left-wing site to declare that, perhaps, Trevor Noah just isn’t funny.

“Yeah, the new ‘Daily Show’ is so deadly that I have to do what I can to punch up the jokes. I’m not the only one who senses that something is lacking. Since Noah’s takeover, ‘The Daily Show’s’ ratings have fallen like a drunk heckler slipping on watermelon guts at a Gallagher show. Nielsen stats show a 37 percent drop overall.”

Salon adds that not everything is doom-and-gloom. The 18-24 demo has increased by 20 percent and on-demand streaming has increased by 44 percent. The writer, Sarah Burris, thinks that Trevor is having a rough time because his comedy isn’t the type of comedy The Daily Show is used to. Burris believes that Jon Stewart’s comedy was like Saturday Night Live, whereas Trevor Noah’s comedy is more Mad TV. However, some people in the comments section after the article have defended Trevor Noah.

It’s fun to watch the left devour themselves, isn’t it?

By the way, does anyone believe someone who works for Salon could do any better?
