Here’s what Foreign Policy Magazine Situation Report said this morning about the new Republican National Convention.
“Amid arena-wide chants calling for the jailing of Hillary Clinton and full-throated — if vague — criticisms of Obama-era foreign policy, the Republican National Convention kicked off in Cleveland on Monday night. The opening night featured a roster of disparate speakers ranging from minor 80s sitcom stars to former Navy SEALs, all making the same point: America is teetering on the precipice of chaos and a rapid slide into irrelevancy, and Hillary Clinton is to blame.”
Has the GOP morphed into a vigilante mob? What happened to innocent until proven guilty? What happened to sanity?
The Republicans have chaired many investigations trying to pin something on Bill and/or Hillary and they have failed every time. For Benghazi alone, the GOP chaired several investigations and spent millions and couldn’t prove that Clinton was responsible for what happened. If you don’t believe this, then check the Benghazi Research Center (BRC).
Then there was Whitewater, a failed real—estate investment Bill and Hillary made in 1978. Although no inquiry has ever produced evidence of wronging, these investigations ultimately led to President Bill Clinton’s impeachment for perjury and obstruction of justice. The only thing the GOP could pin on President Bill Clinton was an alleged sexual affair with Monica Lewinsky, but she was a consenting adult and how was this anyone else’s business?
I guess sane people with open minds already know the answers to these questions.
The Atlantic reported, “Since the Clintons have a long history of controversies, there are any number of past scandals that continue to float around, especially in conservative media: Whitewater. Troopergate. Paula Jones. Monica Lewinsky. Travelgate. Vince Foster’s suicide. Juanita Broaddrick.”
Then there is Donald Trump, and the Daily News reports that ‘Art of the Deal’, co-author Tony Schwartz calls Trump a ‘sociopath’ in scathing tell-all: ‘I put lipstick on a pig’, he says.
If you want to learn more about Donald Trump, I suggest reading A Psychologist Analyzes Donald Trump’s Personality, A neuroscientist explains: Trump has a mental disorder that makes him a dangerous world leader, and The Personality of Donald Trump.
If that isn’t enough to convince you that Donald Trump isn’t fit to be president of the United States, then there is A Brief History of Donald Trump’s Get-Rich Schemes, A Brief History of Donald Trump’s Love Affair With Saddam Hussein, and there is this video revealing The Real Story Behind Donald Trump’s Wealth even though Trump has repeatedly lied that he has never failed at anything.
Please people, can we get rid of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton and start over again without them running for president or any elected office ever?
Donald Trump is 70 and Hillary Clinton is 68. Let’s send these two to an isolated, remote, uninhabited island without electricity somewhere in the Arctic/Antarctic and force them to live together in one, one-room cabin without running water for one full year. Their one luxury will be an outhouse one hundred yards from the 100 square foot cabin that has one pot-bellied cast iron stove for warmth — the stove can be in the outhouse or the cabin, their choice. For sleep, there will be one bunk bed like we see in prisons with an upper and lower bunk. It would be interesting to watch when they decide who gets the upper bunk. They also get 1 chess set, no books and no links of any kind to the outside world.
Donald and Hillary will be supplied with enough oatmeal, spam and toilet paper to survive the entire year without any resupply missions or contact with the outside world. Too bad we end up with a choice between two shady characters with bad reputations. Who is responsible for this choice — let’s hang them without a trial?
