It has become de rigueur in democrat circles to paint the Republican Presidential candidate as a racist every four years, despite all evidence to the contrary.

"Let’s get this straight. Calling Hillary Clinton a “bigot” has reporters asking every Republican in sight if Donald Trump has gone too far. But the Clinton campaign releases a video saying Mr. Trump is the candidate of the Ku Klux Klan and it’s all okey-dokey?

Then again, Mr. Trump has already been likened to Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin. Small wonder there’s a collective ho-hum when Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine says Mr. Trump is peddling “KKK values.”

This is what Democrats do."

Indeed. Mr. McGurn offers us examples of classic democrat tactics:

• In 2000, for example, an NAACP ad recreated the gruesome murder of James Byrd to imply that then-Gov. Bush was sympathetic to lynching black men. Over footage of a chain being dragged by a pickup truck, Mr. Byrd’s daughter says, “So when Gov. George W. Bush refused to support hate-crimes legislation, it was like my father was killed all over again.”

• When John McCain ran in 2008, Barack Obama warned that Republicans would scare people by saying, “You know, he doesn’t look like all those other presidents on those dollar bills.” The McCain campaign fired back, accusing Mr. Obama of playing the race card from the “bottom of the deck.” Funny thing: All those reporters always hearing “dog whistles” from Republicans somehow didn’t hear this one.

• In 2012, when Mitt Romney went to the NAACP and told them face-to-face about his opposition to ObamaCare, the stories were all about how he was really just trolling for the racist vote. Vice President Joe Biden put it more explicitly, telling a largely African-American audience that if Mr. Romney were to win, he’d “put ya’ll back in chains.”

There is great irony in this. Historically, democrats have kept blacks in chains- not Republicans. Democrats created the Ku Klux Klan. They resisted the 13th Amendment:

"Fact: The Republican Party was founded primarily to oppose slavery, and Republicans eventually abolished slavery. The Democratic Party fought them and tried to maintain and expand slavery. The 13th Amendment, abolishing slavery, passed in 1865 with 100% Republican support but only 23% Democrat support in congress."

democrats continued to resist equal rights for blacks through the 50’s:

“The people who cast the votes don’t decide an election, the people who count the votes do.”

– Joseph Stalin

What could go wrong?

Paul Bedard:

"Even before the FBI identified new cyber attacks on two separate state election boards, the Department of Homeland Security began considering declaring the election a “critical infrastructure,” giving it the same control over security it has over Wall Street and and the electric power grid.

The latest admissions of attacks could speed up that effort possibly including the upcoming presidential election, according to officials.

“We should carefully consider whether our election system, our election process, is critical infrastructure like the financial sector, like the power grid,” Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said.

“There’s a vital national interest in our election process, so I do think we need to consider whether it should be considered by my department and others critical infrastructure,” he said at media conference earlier this month hosted by the Christian Science Monitor."

The justification?

DHS describes it this way on their website: “There are 16 critical infrastructure sectors whose assets, systems, and networks, whether physical or virtual, are considered so vital to the United States that their incapacitation or destruction would have a debilitating effect on security, national economic security, national public health or safety, or any combination thereof.”

This is fabulous. The regime that brought you Fast and Furious, IRS targeting of conservatives, that depended on the stupidity of grubers, that lied about obamacare and lied about the Iran deal now seeks to control the 2016 Presidential election. This reminds me of obama wanting to put all medical records online. That assures they can be hacked. It’s the same for electronic voting machines. They and their databases can be hacked. Stealing the 2016 election has been described as “child’s play.” Thi administration has claimed that the Russian have at least twice hacked voter databases.

Colin Kaepernick is certainly an articulate young man. That was obvious from his interaction with the press in the locker room where he faced a phalanx of reporters asking him about his decision to sit through the national anthem to bring attention to the “oppression” of black men. Given that this is the first year he has sat through the national anthem he was asked how his position has evolved over the years. He answered:

“It’s something that I’ve seen, I’ve felt, wasn’t quite sure how to deal with originally. And it is something that’s evolved. It’s something that as I’ve gained more knowledge about, what’s gone in this country in the past, what’s going on currently. These aren’t new situations. This isn’t new ground. There are things that have gone on in this country for years and years and have never been addressed, and they need to be.”

And when asked what needed to change he answered:

"There’s a lot of things that need to change. One specifically? Police brutality. There’s people being murdered unjustly and not being held accountable. People are being given paid leave for killing people. That’s not right. That’s not right by anyone’s standards."

Kaepernick may indeed be articulate, but alas, he’s a fool. Abraham Lincoln had it right: “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.”

What makes Kaepernick a fool? The fact that he parrots the Black Lives Matter lies that black men in America are oppressed and are unable to provide for their families and escape poverty because of police brutality.

Black men may indeed be oppressed by the government, but it’s not in the way Kaepernick suggests. It’s by government welfare programs that destroy families and make unwed motherhood a viable choice. It’s by the education bureaucracy that walks in lockstep with teacher’s unions and keeps inner city children from getting a decent education. It’s the myriad labor regulations that make it inefficient for businesses to hire young black men with little experience and give them an entry into the working world. And the consequence of all of these government programs is that young black men do indeed have a difficult time escaping poverty and all too often are ending up dead… but it’s mostly not at the hands of police, but rather at the hands of other young black men.

Zubaydah, characterized as “the poster child” and “guinea pig” for the CIA Interrogation Program, made his first public appearance on Tuesday before a GITMO parole board:

"The hearing is part of the Periodic Review Board, which the Department of Defense describes as “an interagency process designed to review whether continued detention of Guantanamo detainees is necessary to protect against a continuing significant threat to the security of the United States.”

“He has come to believe that he might have a chance to leave Guantanamo through this process,” a representative for Zubaydah said at the hearing.

~~~

Zubaydah did not speak during the public portion of the review board, but his representative said, “He has no desire or intent to harm the United States or any other country, and he has repeatedly said that the Islamic State is out of control and has gone too far.”"

ABC News is typical of most media accounts:

"Mistakenly believed to have been one of the top officials in al-Qaeda, Zubaydah, 45, whose real name is Zayn al-Ibidin Muhammed Husay, was waterboarded 83 times and endured several other enhanced interrogation techniques used by the CIA in its secret detention program. It was later determined that U.S. intelligence overstated Zubaydah’s role in al-Qaeda.
Zubaydah, who thanked his interrogators for it, was not waterboarded 83 times. Yet this distorted claim to this day, is parroted throughout media."

And so it goes. One media report after another, perpetuating the idea that Zubaydah was waterboarded 83 times; that he was either anywhere from a low-level operative to not a terrorist at all; but another GITMO innocent whose supposed Constitutional rights we’ve been violating by not charging him and giving him a trial. Or dismissing him altogether because he was “mistakenly” characterized at one point as a “number 3 man” in al Qaeda; or that since he was not “officially” al Qaeda, we wrongfully captured, rendered, and interrogated him. (Note: KSM was also not “officially” al Qaeda at the time of the 9/11 attacks, which he masterminded. He did not swear bayat until after he felt assured that the plots would be carried out. And according to Seth Jones’ Hunting in the Shadows, Zubaydah made an initial request to join al Qaeda in 1993; and was rejected).

The same people who want you to believe that man-caused global warming is real want you to believe Hillary Clinton has done nothing wrong. It’s called suspension of disbelief. At the moment Clinton is attempting to bury Donald Trump in negative ads. It is a typical Clinton tactic – a smokescreen meant to cloud the truth about the degree of Clinton corruption which is so baldly evident. Nothing epitomizes that corruption as this article:

"Emails Show Clinton Foundation Donor Reached Out To Hillary Clinton Before Arms Export Boost

Emails just released by the State Department appear to show Clinton Foundation officials brokering a meeting between then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and a top military leader of Bahrain — a Middle Eastern country that is a major foundation donor. Soon after the correspondence about a meeting, Clinton’s State Department significantly increased arms export authorizations to the country’s autocratic government, even as that nation moved to crush pro-democracy protests."

Keeping an eye on weapons sales to countries is a specific responsibility of the office of Secretary of State

"A 2015 International Business Times investigative series examined how, in that role, Clinton ran an agency that is responsible for regulating U.S. arms exports, and how those State Department exports approvals substantially increased to governments that donated to the Clinton Foundation. Federal law explicitly designates the secretary of state as “responsible for the continuous supervision and general direction of sales” of arms, and early in her term, the State Department called one arms deal a “top priority” for Clinton."

All you needed to do to procure weapons to suppress democracy is buy off Hillary Clinton
The same people who want you to believe that man-caused global warming is real want you to believe Hillary Clinton has done nothing wrong. It's ca
