Who is Moscow’s Candidate for U.S. President?

To find out, what does Hillary Clinton have to say about campaign finance reform?

She says, “Our democracy should work for everyone, not just the wealthy and well-connected.”

Should we only trust what she says on her campaign site?  Of course not, so how did she vote as a United States Senator regarding this issue. Regardless of Trump and his campaign’s deliberate lies and misinformation that Hillary did nothing as a Senator, she did sponsor and co-sponsor and vote yes or no on hundreds of bills.  Anyone with an open mind can easily find and Google Vote Smart on Hillary Clinton (or click this link) for an entire fact-based record of her achievement, successes and failures as a U.S. Senator — nothing but the facts with absolutely no bias.

For instance, Hillary co-sponsored the Campaign Finance Reform Act of 2001, and the bill passed in the Senate and then in the House.

What happened to this bill that passed both the Senate and the House? GOP Senator Mitch (obviously crooked and paid for) McConnell challenged the bill as unconstitutional and when it reached the Supreme Court in 2003, the Bill survived, but not for long.

A few years later, the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in Citizen United struck down campaign financing laws related to corporations and unions. The ruling did not, as commonly thought, change the amount of money corporations and unions can contribute to campaigns. The minority argued that the court erred in allowing unlimited corporate spending, arguing that corporate spending posed a particular threat to democratic self-government.

As for Donald Trump, it’s not easy to know where he stands because like the Iraq War he’s been for campaign finance reform and against it like the changing weather from winter to summer, and we have no voting record to look at.  But we have a history of serial lies and losing other people’s money while making money using the money the banks, investors, and workers lost when they weren’t paid, and there are the contributions made to the fraudulent Trump FoundationHow Donald Trump retooled his charity to spend other people’s money.

In fact, Trump recently refused to pay almost $1 million owed to a polling service for his campaign, and Newsweek revealed that Donald Trump’s Companies Destroyed Emails in Defiance of Court Orders dating back to the 1970s in many court cases.

Then there is this about Donald Trump, the alleged Moscow Candidate: “A Veteran (U.S.) Spy Has Given the FBI Information Alleging a Russian Operation to Cultivate Donald Trump

The 1962 film, the “Manchurian Candidate“, got it all wrong. It’s time for a remake, but the remake should be called “Putin’s Candidate” or “The Moscow Candidate”, and Alec Baldwin should play Donald Trump.

Trump boasts he will make America Safe from Terrorists by doing what Israel does

Mother Jones reports Donald Trump’s response to the recent New York, New Jersey Bombings, and the miracle cure is racial profiling on a mass scale. Trump says, “You know, in Israel they profile. They’ve done an unbelievable job, as good as you can do.”

I took a closer look at Donald Trump’s claim that Israel does a job “as good as you can do.”

The Jewish Virtual Library posts a comprehensive listing of fatalities linked to terrorism against Israel. So far in 2016, there have been ten listings that added up to 14 dead.

In 2015 there were twenty-two listings for 35 dead.

In 2014 there were 15 listings for 39 dead.

The list goes back to 1993. For Israel to be “as good as can you can do”, then the death toll from terrorism in Israel has to be lower than the U.S. death toll from terrorism on U.S. soil.

I found this list from wnd.com for Muslim terror attacks in the U.S. since 911.

In 2015, there were two listings in the U.S. One was in Garland, Texas where the two terrorists were shot and killed by a security guard, who was wounded. No one else died but the two terrorists.

The other incident in 2015 killed four U.S. Marines who were shot dead by a lone Islamic gunman. There were five totals deaths in 2015 in the United States to acts of alleged Isliam terrorism and one of the five was the gunman.

Therefore in 2015, four Americans died at the hands of alleged Islamic terrorists on U.S. soil compared to 35 Israelis killed in Israel where Trump says racial profiling does “an unbelievable job, as good as you can do.”

What about 2014?  In 2014, wnd.com listed three incidents in the U.S. with four deaths versus 39 killed in Israel.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t think Israel’s methods to prevent terrorist attacks are “as good as you can do”.

A vote for Trump is a vote for a manipulating, psycho, narcissistic, bully, and serial liar. Discover more about the real Donald Trump here: Will the Real Donald Trump Please Stand and Keep His Mouth Shut.
