A Time For Choosing

A Time For Choosing

In November we go to the polls and the time for debate is over.  It now becomes a time of choosing but what will our choices be built upon?

We’ve all talked about the Supreme Court Nominations as a critical part of this election and that is certainly important in deciding how you will vote in November but perhaps we should look at some other aspects in considering how we will vote.  The Supreme Court appointments are not the only appointments made by a President.  The President oversees a myriad of positions through the well-entrenched bureaucracies  that are under the Executive Branch including agencies and departments that oversee the environment, Food and Drugs, Foreign Affairs, Education, Agriculture, Parks and name it and the United States has a federal Department or agency that has regulatory authority over it.

What type of people would Hillary seek to fill these positions?

Recently we learned about the attempts to rig the election by the DNC. James O’Keefe’s video led to the termination of two operatives who boasted of using intimidation tactics and inciting violence.

The first to go was Scott Foval. He admitted to using plants, including mentally ill people, to start violence at or near Trump events. He also bragged about bussing, his word, in illegal voters to Wisconsin. He was affiliated with what was, at least according to his description of its activities, a criminal enterprise called Americans United for Change.

Next to go was Robert Creamer, founder and partner of Democracy Partners, the group behind the organized violence at Trump rallies, as shown in the video by James O’Keefe and Project Veritas. He is no ordinary agitator. Creamer, a convicted felon, is arguably the spiritual godfather of ObamaCare and much of the current progressive left agenda.

Creamer, a political consultant who is intimately connected with Obama’s inner political circle, pleaded guilty in 2005 to tax violations and bank fraud. He served time in a federal prison and was under house arrest. After finishing his sentence, Creamer worked for Obama’s presidential campaign, training organizers.

In both cases these two individuals were willing to use tactics of threat and intimidations as well as commit actions of voter fraud by destroying voter registration for Republicans.  They bestowed upon themselves the authority to determine that some voters in America need to be silenced.

The Project Veritas videos showed other operatives within the DNC who claim to have destroyed voter registrations.  Aggressive campaign activity leads to open doors in high paying government jobs, sometimes that happens when the aggressive campaign work involves illegal activity.  

One player in the videos is a guy named Cesar Vargas. Vargas is an illegal immigrant who studied as a lawyer but was refused bar admission because of his citizenship status. Last year, a five-judge panel unanimously ruled in favor of Vargas granting his admission as a lawyer who can practice law in America. Vargas is also an immigrant-rights activist and recipient of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. He came to America from Mexico at the age of 5 and never became a citizen. Cases he tries will set precedence for law regarding U.S. Citizens.

Another aspect of this was the creation of PACS which enables much of this to take place while making it very hard for others to follow the money trails while they hide unethical and outright illegal activities.

The Project Veritas videos show a guy named Aaron Black.  Black's real name is Aaron Minter.   Aaron Minter (Aaron Black), 41, facilitated Occupy events, such as the bus trip to protest the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa. These events are sponsored by organizations like the SEIU, ones who publicly back Barack Obama, and who work to get Democrats elected. This fact is kept hidden from most people, but certain sympathetic individuals in the Occupy community know what’s going on.

Aaron was arrested on April 5, 2012, for vandalizing more than 20 subway stations throughout New York City, plastering subway seats with stickers that read “priority seating for the 1 percent.” (link) He also chained open gates at the stations, including the Steinway Street station in Queens, and passed out flyers reading, “Free Entry” that mimicked MTA service announcement flyers.

Police spotted him in a March 4 NY1 segment: Aaron had invited the news media to follow him along and film his stunt. After cops saw the NY1 video, they found Aaron hanging around other protesters in Union Square at around 11:15 p.m., a day after the act. He was charged with criminal mischief (a felony) as well as making graffiti, and possession of graffiti instruments, both misdemeanors. Aaron was sentenced to 10 days at Rikers Island jail.  (link)

Aaron Minter, has a history of arrests for menacing, and one for burglary the day after 9/11, at a closed store two blocks from Ground Zero. He also uses a fictitious last name, perhaps to throw off any curious individuals looking into his past. 

Before all this was Debbie Wasserman Schultz who was forced to resign after Wikileaks unloaded thousands of e-mails including some that proved top DNC staff plotted to sabotage Sanders' presidential hopes. Instead of being prosecuted for her actions Schultz resigned to find a position as honorary chair of HIllary Clinton's 50-state program to help elect Democrats around the country.  She also happens to be a Congresswoman representing the 23rd Congressional District in Florida.  That title makes her a 'super delegate" in the Democrat Party.  

Schultz was replaced by Donna Brazile who was, some would say, a strange choice since in 1988 Brazile, while working for the Michael Dukakis presidential effort was forced to resign after she spread lies about George H.W. Bush. 

Brazile has referred to her time on Jesse Jackson’s campaign as the best time of her political career referring to him as her mentor. Jackson, during that time referred to Jewish people as “Hymie’s” living in Hymietown (New York City). Most recently her ethics has been called in to question for passing a town hall question that she got from a reporter on to Hillary prior to a debate demonstrating a collusion between the news media and the Clinton campaign that is highly unethical.  

We now know that the short list of Hillary’s VP picks before selecting Kaine included Ursula Burns and Elizabeth Warren. Burns was a former CEO of Xerox where her tenure included bad management decisions  putting the Fortune 500 company at risk which contributed to the layoff of around 500 employees while she drew in her cool $13 million dollar averaged annual salary. She later resigned as CEO but was still with company in management in a separate division of the Company.

Elizabeth Warren exploited Native Americans for political gain as she claimed to be Cherokee even after exhaustive research proved otherwise as reported by MSNBC’s Adam Howard.

There was also Tom Vilsack, former governor of Iowa and President Barack Obama’s current secretary of agriculture. Vilsack was caught up in a 2004 scandal that resulted in emails being destroyed.  As Secretary of Agriculture, Vilsack used a secret, nonpublic email account to communicate with the secret email account of former EPA administrator Lisa Jackson which used the fake name Richard Windsor.  Vilsack was also involved in passing a regulation as Secretary of Agriculture that forbid some municipalities from allowing the sale and planting of non-genetically modified seeds.

Another of her choices was Tom Perez. Perez’s tenure as labor secretary have been rife with controversy.  He was the one responsible for dropping the voter intimidation action against Black Panthers at the polls in Philadelphia.  Perez told investigators that "white people" are not protected by the voter's right acts and  that he believed the act only applied to specific, historic minorities, not all citizens.  The House Oversight Committee found that Perez engaged in a quid pro quo that cost taxpayers $200 million in order to prevent a discrimination case from reaching the Supreme Court. Rep. Darrell Issa (R., Calif.), the committee chairman, said the deal was “arranged to ensure an ideological pet policy of the Obama Administration would avoid Supreme Court scrutiny.” 

Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R., Calif.) said it appears Perez used his personal email account almost 1,200 times since 2009 to conduct official department business, including communicating with organizations such as Planned Parenthood, the New York Times, and Talking Points Memo …Perez has yet to fully comply with the subpoena, Issa wrote. Oversight officials were only given the opportunity to review 34 emails from Perez’ personal account.  

Using personal email servers to conduct official business is not just a Clinton problem, it's happening at all levels of government.

Her eventual pick of Kaine was not without controversy, one largely ignored by mainstream media. In 2007, when Kaine was governor of Virginia, he appointed Muslim American Society President Esam Omeish to the state’s Immigration Commission. The MAS is an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood, as documented in a 2008 court filing in Dallas, Texas, during the Holy Land Foundation trial. The foundation was a conduit for sending money to Hamas, a Palestinian terror group dedicated to the destruction of the state of Israel.

That should come as no shock to us since Hillary’s closest confidant throughout has been Abedin Huma, former assistant editor of the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs working under her mother, who remains editor-in-chief. At the time she was also working in the White House as an intern for then-first lady Clinton. Huma’s family also has strong ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Abedin’s mother was the Muslim World League’s delegate to the UN conference. Their publishing franchise included a 1999 book, edited by Huma’s mother, that justifies the barbaric practice of female genital mutilation under Islamic law, while claiming “man-made laws have in fact enslaved women.”

And in 2010, Huma Abedin arranged for then-Secretary of State Clinton to speak alongside Abedin’s hijab-wearing mother at an all-girls college in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. According to a transcript of the speech, Clinton said Americans have to do a better job of getting past “the stereotypes and the mischaracterizations” of the oppressed Saudi woman.

At no point in her long visit there, which included a question-and-answer session, did this so-called champion of women’s rights protest the human rights violations Saudi women suffer under the Shariah laws that Abedin’s mother actively promotes. Nothing about the laws barring women from driving or traveling anywhere without male “guardians.” Nor did she question the country’s treatment of gays even though Clinton is viewed as a champion of LGBT causes.

The Clinton Foundation employed a high ranking member and operative of the Muslim Brotherhood for many years and has received tens of millions of dollars from Qatar and Iranian regime front and the most oppressive government on Earth—Saudi Arabia. Between the years, 2007 and 2012, Gehad el-Haddad was the director of the Clinton Foundation’s Egypt chapter. His father, Essam el-Haddad, is a ranking member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Guidance Bureau. During his tenure working under the Clintons, El-Haddad started working as a senior advisor for the political wing of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt- ironically named the Freedom and Justice Party. It would appear that the Clinton Foundation took no issue with his choice of side-job, and allowed his employment with them to continue.

In brief, the Clinton Foundation’s biggest Egyptian liaison is a big hitter in an organization that has openly declared war on America and the West in general.

The latest Wikileaks emails to go public reveal a series of communications involving Hillary Clinton’s Campaign Chairman John Podesta and the campaign’s Director of Communications Jennifer Palmieri in which Catholics are described as “severely backwards” and guilty of the “bastardization” of faith in general. The email author goes so far as to accuse Catholics of being “totally unaware of Christian democracy.”

Clinton spokeswoman Palmieri did not pushback at Halpin’s attacks on Catholics. In fact, Palmieri suggested that these conversions to Catholicism were not authentic, but motivated by social pressure because “their rich friends wouldn’t understand if they became evangelicals.” Halpin said this was an “excellent point” and that these Catholics like to “sound sophisticated” but “no one knows what the hell they are talking about.”

Of course these people are all working for a Presidential candidate who referred to Trump Supporters who she classified as being not only deplorable but also irredeemable and not Americans.

Looking at the Clinton Campaign operatives affords us a window into what her appointments will look like in the myriads of bureaucracies she would oversee as President of the United States. These Departments, Agencies and Commissions that make up those bureaucracies will have regulatory authority over all of us.

These people are the first to scream racist, xenophobe, or whatever “phobe” is convenient at the time to levy accusations against others but at the core of it all we see a general disdain for the working people of the United State, those whom Hillary herself has called the deplorably irredeemable; people who, by her own words she doesn’t even classify as being American while choosing to align herself with radical advocates of terrorism who have called for the destruction of Western Civilization.

In HIllary's advocacy for planned Parenthood and her firm belief that women should have the right to destroy the life in a child in their womb has led to the destruction of more than 884 thousand lives in the United States this year, 59 million since 1973's Roe vs Wade, her war against women and America's moral center is evident.   A society that betrays the protection of the rights of the most vulnerable is a society that would embrace the destruction of all human rights.  I can find nothing noble or honorable in her support of infanticide.  That she extends that sentiment to a radical element of society who throws gays to their death from buildings; beheads infidels who will not align themselves to this ideology, has conducted efforts of mass genocide; confines women to servitude with public stonings, beheadings and genital mutilation is not that far a leap.

The number of people killed in Nazi Death Camps is estimated to be between 3,115,000–3,215,000 between 1940 and 1945.  Auschwitz being the longest running of these camps was responsible for the deaths of 1 million over those five years, slightly more than the babies lives we've taken in the US this year alone.  

There were 11,774 terrorist attacks in 92 countries last year that took the lives of 28,328 people according to The U.S. State Department's annual Country Reports on Terrorism 2015.  That reports tells us that since 2006 terrorist attacks have claimed the lives of 190,198 people.  That reports also admits that the numbers are an underestimation.  The last two years account for almost 62 thousand of those deaths or nearly 1/3 of the 9 years totals.  2014 accounted for 32, 763 of those deaths; more than 10 thousand more of any previous year (22,719 being the previous high in 2007).Again this only accounts for deaths related to acts of Terrorism not for all deaths committed by the most radical elements of this religion of peace.  

Just one century ago the radical jihadists were responsible for the 1.5 million  Armenians killed in and attempted genocide; hundreds of thousands of Greeks and Assyrians each were also systematically slaughtered.  The Armenian holocaust is ignored today but it was also ignored at the time.  In 1939, on the eve of World WWII, Hitler rationalized his genocidal plans against the Jews, when he reportedly asked: “Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?”

 A century later, Christian minorities are still being systematically decapitated, crucified, tortured, raped, and enslaved — also under the pretext of war. In every Arab nation the U.S. has helped oust (secular) autocrats — Iraq, Libya, Syria — indigenous Christian minorities have been massacred by the jihadi elements that were once contained by Saddam Hussein, Muammar Gaddafi, and Bashar Assad.  

This is not limited to the Arab world. In Muslim-majority northern Nigeria, Muslims, spearheaded by the Islamic organization Boko Haram, are waging a savage jihad on the Christian minorities in their midst. Boko Haram’s stated goal is to cleanse northern Nigeria of all Christians.  I'm sorry Mrs. Clinton, that isn't Islamaphobia, those are cold hard facts.

In Ronald Reagan’s now classic “A Time For Choosing" speech he declared

“Well, let us set one thing straight, there is no argument with regard to peace and war. It is cheap demagoguery to suggest that anyone would want to send other people’s sons to war. The only argument is with regard to the best way to avoid war. There is only one sure way—surrender. Appeasement or Courage? The spectre our well-meaning liberal friends refuse to face is that their policy of accommodation is appeasement, and appeasement does not give you a choice between peace and war, only between fight and surrender. We are told that the problem is too complex for a simple answer. They are wrong. There is no easy answer, but there is a simple answer. We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right, and this policy of accommodation asks us to accept the greatest possible immorality. We are being asked to buy our safety from the threat of “the bomb” by selling into permanent slavery our fellow human beings enslaved behind the Iron Curtain, to tell them to give up their hope of freedom because we are ready to make a deal with their slave masters”

Apply that to the appeasement efforts of the Obama’s and the Clinton’s who have placed radical elements within our own government who are influencing policy and directives and you have a recipe for disaster but a recipe that explains their opposition of reasonable immigration laws.

While the Supreme Court appointments she would make are important, her other appointments are also important. If her campaign and political allies are any indication, America will go further down this divisive path established over the last 8 years through the Obama Administrations paving the way for the hostilities in America to escalate and allow to happen in America the violent hostilities we see in Europe.

We have watched the over-reach of the Federal Government into our lives in ways that have total disregard for a Constitutional Rule of Law and looking at these examples, we see a candidate who would continue down a path she has been on: Constitutional usurpation of powers aided by appointees who are all to willing to do the same even if it means breaking the law.

We talk about elections in terms of the personalities and the focus on elections is usually framed around the eccentricities of the individuals involved. The elections are about policy and positions on issues and to best view that we also have to look at who they are willing to hire to get that job done and what those people have done in violation of our rights and liberties to advance those agendas. In Hillary Clinton’s case it should be obvious that there are no lengths to which she will go nor does she care about the ethical conduct of those she chooses to help advance her agenda. From Abortion on demand to Climate Change extremism Clinton and her appointees will oversee the regulations of healthcare and food production in America; She will oversee the regulations on energy production; She will oversee foreign affairs with the same disdain for transparency that she and her choices to head these administrations have displayed; In the administration of those foreign relations she will continue to use cold war rhetoric in dialogue about Russia including repeating unproven statements as facts like the repeated claim that Russia is behind the Wikileaks; She will oversee race relations in America where her own staff and appointees have been using race-baiting rhetoric and tactics to agitate violence while condoning violent protests that result in the destruction of personal property.

Yes, her Supreme Court appointments are important but so are her choices for who will head the massive administration of the Cabinets, Departments and Agencies under the executive branch.

It is a time for choosing.  That choice involves the future of America.  Will we choose a candidate who has a history of actual scandals rife with disregard for the rule of law and human life  who has surrounded herself with others of the same persuasions?
