clinton conventionFormer President Bill Clinton, is feeling pretty upset these days. Obviously, he hoped to get back to the White House as Hillary’s “First Dude.” What a spectacle it would have been for Bill to be unleashed on another set of White House interns, but this time unsupervised and unencumbered with any real responsibilities. During the presidency, he caused enough trouble with his shenanigans, culminating in his impeachment. This all occurred when he had a country to run, but as “First Dude,” he would have been free to cause total havoc and embarrassment for his wife and the country. 

 

Thank God, the country has been spared the disaster of Hillary’s liberal policies and Bill’s liberal morality in the White House. Unfortunately, Bill is very bitter about his wife’s loss and complained in an impromptu interview at a bookstore in Pleasantville, New York that “James Comey cost her the election.” Clinton maintained that his wife had a seven-point lead in the polls that evaporated when Comey made the announcement that the email probe would be reopened. Of course, he did not mention that Comey helped his wife tremendously by refusing to recommend an indictment of Clinton despite her “extremely careless” handling of a personal email system that contained classified and top secret communications. 

In his bookstore remarks with customers, Clinton also excoriated Donald Trump and claimed that he “doesn’t know much,” except how to “get angry, white men to vote for him.” This charge is similar to what members of the media have been saying about Trump from the beginning of his campaign. He has been underestimated and ridiculed countless times from smug liberals who were certain that he would fail. Instead, the political novice beat 16 GOP veterans to win the Republican presidential nomination and then defeated an extremely experienced opponent to win the presidency.

Regarding the familiar refrain that Trump only won because of his appeal to racial anger, it overlooks the serious and real challenges that all voters face in many Rust Belt states. Trump addressed those concerns in a better way than Clinton.

Americans in many depressed areas of the country are right to be angry at the direction of this nation. Obviously, they voted not due to race, but because Trump was the only candidate to offer real change. In addition, the Trump coalition did not only include “angry white men,” but, also a greater percentage of Hispanic and African Americans supporters than previous GOP presidential candidates, such as Mitt Romney or Senator John McCain (R-AZ), received. 

In typical Trump fashion, he responded to Clinton’s comments in a tweet. He posted that Clinton “doesn’t know much…especially how to get people, even with an unlimited budget, out to vote in vital swing states (and more). They focused on wrong states.” 

Trump is right, Hillary Clinton raised about $1.2 billion, almost double the $646 million raised by Trump. 

Hillary never visited Wisconsin after the national conventions and spent little on media and canvassing efforts in Michigan and other battleground states. In the final analysis, she was clearly out worked by Trump. According to NBC News, in the final 100 days, Trump made 133 visits to the six key battleground states of Florida, North Carolina, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Ohio, whereas Clinton only visited them 87 times.   

Trump’s message and his personal visits to battleground states helped his campaign achieve victory and defeat a formidable Clinton machine. Clearly, Bill Clinton “doesn’t know much” if he can’t grasp this fact. Sadly, it seems he is just an angry white man who can’t accept the election results.

  • A July 4th Fact of Facts: America is Land of Immigrants
  • Poll: Trump strong on jobs, weak on tweets, viewed as reckless, thin-skinned, sexist
  • President Trump, It doesn't feel like Independence Day
  • YIPPIE! The naked truth about free speech, cherished especially on Independence Day

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
