Trump Is Right Again!!

trump smilingHave you noticed every time the left criticizes Trump they always end up agreeing with him or doing what he says? Critics on both sides of the aisle all  laughed  at him when he first ran for President saying he would never get past the primaries. He did just that. He beat out 16 of the top contenders in government and now he’s beating Hillary in some polls. http://americanlookout.com/unstoppable-new-video-highlights-all-the-people-who-were-wrong-about-trump/

He criticized Obama and others for not saying radical Islam and now they are saying it. He criticized them for not having Amercan flags on the stage at the convention so they went out and got them. He was the first one to talk about how bad the VA system was and raised five million dollars for them. Now Hillary is talking about helping the vets, but I don’t see her donating a dime from the two billion dollars in their Clinton Foundation, instead she spends it on her and Bill’s life, and helping their candidates and influencing people.

After the Democrat Convention trump held a press conference and said how they really “hit me” at the convention. He then sarcastically added, “Now watch them accuse me of wanting to hit my critics when I meant verbally not physically.”Sure enough the next day one website had a big headline that said “TRUMP WANTS TO HIT CRITICS!”

I recently read an interesting opinion from a pastor that said, “ I have always liked Winston Churchill. He is seen as one of the greatest national leaders in the 20th century. Last year, I had the privilege of going through the War Museum in London. Winston is a key feature. His life is controversial. He was not always celebrated as a great leader. He was a bombastic, cigar smoking, at times crude, even misogynistic leader. (SOUND  FAMILIAR?)
There are many websites that discuss the outlandish comments and activities of this great world leader. He had exactly what was needed to stop Hitler at the Channel, to rouse a nation to never give up and to partner with America to find final victory in Europe. You wouldn’t want him as your pastor, maybe not even your father, but he was the right leader for that moment in England’s history. (Sound familiar?) Such a brazen man that would go up to the roof of his quarters in central London and smoke cigars as Hitler’s air force bombed all around him. I’m not sure I would have voted for him …. but he was the right man.” I too think Trump is the right man for the  right  time.

Now former Education Secretary and PH.d under Reagan Bill Bennett  who I admire immensely recently said it perfectly why both sides are after Trump: But Trump doesn’t play by any of these rules.  Trump breaks up this nice, cozy relationship between big government, big media, and big business.  All the rules are out the window if Trump wins the Presidency.  The other politicians will protect Obama and his aides but not Trump.  Remember:  Trump is the guy who publicly questioned Obama’s birth certificate.  He questioned Obama’s college records and how a mediocre student got into an Ivy League university.  Now, he’s doing something no Republican has the chutzpah to do.  He’s questioning our relationship with Mexico; he’s questioning why the border is wide open; he’s questioning why no wall has been built across the border; he’s questioning if allowing millions of illegal aliens into America is in our best interests; he’s questioning why so many illegal aliens commit violent crimes, yet are not deported; and he’s questioning why our trade deals with Mexico, Russia and China are so bad.

 Trump has the audacity to ask out loud why American workers always get the short end of the stick.  Good question!  I’m certain Trump will question what happened to the almost billion dollars given in a rigged no-bid contract to college friends of Michelle Obama at foreign companies to build the defective Obamacare website.  By the way, that tab is now up to $5 billion.  Trump will ask if Obamacare’s architects can be charged with fraud for selling it by lying.  Trump will investigate Obama’s widespread IRS conspiracy, not to mention Obama’s college records.  Trump will prosecute Clinton and Obama for fraud committed to cover up Benghazi before the election.  How about the fraud committed by employees of the Labor Department when they made up dramatic job numbers in the last jobs report before the 2012 election?

 Obama, the multinational corporations and the media need to stop Trump.  They recognize this could get out of control.  If left unchecked, telling the raw truth and asking questions everyone else is afraid to ask, Trump could wake a sleeping giant.  Trump’s election would be a nightmare.  Obama has committed many crimes.  No one else but Trump would dare to prosecute.  He will not hesitate.  Once Trump gets in and gets a look at the cooked books and Obama’s records, the game is over.  The goose is cooked.  Holder could wind up in prison.  Jarrett could wind up in prison.  Obama bundler Corzine could wind up in prison for losing $1.5 billion of customer money.  Clinton could wind up in jail for deleting 32,000 emails or for accepting bribes from foreign governments while Secretary of State, or for misplacing $6 billion as the head of the State Department, or for lying about Benghazi.  The entire upper level management of the IRS could wind up in prison.

 Obamacare will be de-funded and dismantled.  Obama himself could wind up ruined, his legacy in tatters.  Trump will investigate.  Trump will prosecute.  Trump will go after everyone involved.  That’s why the dogs of hell have been unleashed on Donald Trump.

 Yes Bill Bennett  is right on the money with his statements here. One of Donald’s biggest complaint  is or trade deals with countries like China and Mexico and the deficits they are causing. Now all of a sudden in her campaign speech Hilary is talking about our trade deals with Mexico, China and other countries. Trump talked about bringing companies back to the U.S. and creating jobs here. Now Hillary is talking about bringing companies back here when she had 8 years to do all these things.

 These leftists criticize Trump over his statement about putting a “temporary” halt on Muslim immigration. The left has taken this so out of proportion and is so misguided on it saying he wants to ban all muslims. Not true. He just wants a temporary halt so we can find out who is coming in here since these Islamic countries want to destroy us and make us an Islamic state. Jimmy Carter did that with the Iranians for four years. These people have so misconstrued what he said.  To get an idea of what is happening in the world and why Trump is right check out his video on Muslim demographics. Muslim Demographics – YouTube

At the Democratic Convention they got the father of a Muslim Captain who was killed in Iraq fighting for us to criticize Trump for wanting to ban Muslims..

 In an interview with Maureen Down of the New York Times, and again with former Clinton adviser George Stephanopoulos of ABC News, Trump was asked to respond to the speech, which Captain Khan’s father gave while his mother stood silently. He told Dowd, “I’d like to hear his wife say something,” referring to the subordinate status of women in Islam.

Trump said the same to Stephanopoulos, adding that Khan’s father, Khizr Khan, “looked like a nice guy to me,” and defending his own “sacrifices”* for America. He suggested that the Clinton campaign had scripted Khan’s remarks — a charge the family later denied on MSNBC — and returned to his basic policy argument: “We’ve had a lot of problems with radical Islamic terrorism, that’s what I’d say.”

 In response, the usual freak out. Ezra Klein of Vox.com, for example, wrote an articleheadlined: “Donald Trump’s slander of Captain Humayun Khan’s family is horrifying, even for Trump.”

But when bereaved Benghazi mother Patricia Smith spoke at the Republican convention the week before, one Vox.com writer called it an example of “a longstanding Republican tendency of extreme overreach.”

Update: Making the circuit of the Sunday morning shows, Khan’s father said terror has “nothing to do with Islam.”

Meanwhile, Trump has issued the following statements, via Twitter and his campaign website:“Captain Humayun Khan was a hero to our country and we should honor all who have made the ultimate sacrifice to keep our country safe. The real problem here are the radical Islamic terrorists who killed him, and the efforts of these radicals to enter our country to do us further harm. Given the state of the world today, we have to know everything about those looking to enter our country, and given the state of chaos in some of these countries, that is impossible. While I feel deeply for the loss of his son, Mr. Khan who has never met me, has no right to stand in front of millions of people and claim I have never read the Constitution, (which is false) and say many other inaccurate things. If I become President, I will make America safe again.

“Further, Hillary Clinton should be held accountable for her central role in destabilizing the Middle East. She voted to send the United States to war against Iraq, helped lead the disastrous withdrawal of American troops years later that created the vacuum allowing the rise of ISIS, and has never met a regime change she didn’t like (which have all been disasters) – not to mention her invasion of Libya and her abandonment of American personnel in Benghazi. The loss of these lives in Libya is directly traceable to Clinton, but their families’ testimonials were rejected by the media.

Clinton’s actions have been reckless and have directly led to the loss of American lives. And her extreme immigration policies, as also laid out by American victims in Cleveland, will cause the preventable deaths of countless more — while putting all residents, from all places, at greater risk of terrorism.

As Bernie Sanders said on numerous occasions, Hillary Clinton suffers from “bad judgement.” She is not qualified to serve as Commander in Chief.” http://www.breitbart.com/california/2016/07/30/hillary-called-benghazi-mother-liar-media-freaks-trump-response-muslim-parents/

In Germany and throughout Europe where Muslim migration is taking place, people are being attacked and killed by Muslim immigrants and the same is starting to happen here and Hillary wants to increase that, migration here by 550%. As writer and Islamic researcher Pamela Gellar says on her website, ’It’s not Islamaphobia when the they are trying to kill you.”

Please heed this important warning by this  young 16 year old German girl on what is happening in her country with Islamic immigration. The video is her speaking in German, but the translation which I have excerpted here, is beneath it.  The life of Germany has changed because these people cannot integrate. We give them so much help. We support them financially and they do not have to work. But they only want more babies and more welfare and more money. Men of Germany, please, patrol the streets and protect us. Do this for your women and your children. If you do that, I believe that we will have a chance.

This sort of action would be wonderful. We would be so grateful and thankful. So many thanks, if steadily, more men would come to protect us. We are so scared.

I am so upset about what Merkel has done.

Thank you, Angela Merkel, for killing Germany! I have no more respect for you, Merkel. I do not think you know what you have done. You do not see how our lives have changed. Open your eyes! Is this normal? Should I, a 16-year old who is almost 17, be so scared to walk outside my house? No, it is not normal. You have killed Germany!http://truthuncensored.net/german-girl-warns-americans-refugees-not-intigrate-fear-for-our-lives-video/

Yes Trump is the right man for the right time!!!

Wheel Of Plagiarism!!

wheelofFortuneAlright everybody let’s step up and play the new game show ‘Wheel Of Plagiarism.’

The first contestant was Melania Trump. She spun the wheel and was accused by the DNC of plagiarizing parts of Michelle Obama’s speech when Melania spoke at the Republican Convention.

The Republicans and talk radio hosts responded saying Obama and Biden have plagiarized entire speeches in the past.

Next was Donald Trump jr. He spun the wheel and discovered that Obama had plagiarized his speech from the Republican Convention when Obama spoke at the the Democratic Convention. It was such a good speech that Obama decided to pilfer a line or two from it. I’m honored that POTUS would plagiarize a line from my speech last week. Where’s the outrage?” Don Trump jr. said on twitter.  http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2016/07/donald-trump-jr-im-honored-obama-plagiarized-line-speech-wheres-outrage-video/

 Next was Hillary Clinton. She spun the wheel and it came up that she plagiarized her husband Bill’s speech from 1994 who took it off of Alexis de Tocqueville back in 1835  except  Bill quoted him.  Hillary said, “There is no other Donald Trump…This is it. And in the end, it comes down to what Donald Trump doesn’t get: that America is great — because America is good.”

 Back in 1994 Bill said in a speech, “Don’t forget that Alexis de Tocqueville said a long time ago that America is great because America is good; and if America ever ceases to be good, she will no longer be great.”http://about2day.com/breaking-hillary-busted-plagiarizing-dnc-speech-media-refuses-to-report/

However, let’s face facts — this proves that the whole “plagiarism” story during the convention season was a predictable plot to try and direct attention away from Donald Trump’s nomination and it seemed to have back fired on them. Liberals are great for accusing others of doing the same things they do to divert attention. Sneaky, sneaky.

The fact is, both parties use speeches cribbed from a lot of other sources. And, for that matter, Melania Trump isn’t a candidate. Hillary Clinton is.

Democrat Convention:Final Night

Hilaryatconvention

When I was growing up my mother always embedded in me to “be anything, but don’t  be a liar.” I can imagine what she would think of today’s politicians on both sides. Upon watching the democrat convention alI I see is lie after lie after lie. It’s not that I disagree with them which would be one  thing, it’s the fact that I can tell a bold face lie when I see one a mile away.

Joe Biden said when it comes to the middle class and government Donald Trump does not have a clue and gets the minions on the floor yelling “no clue, no clue”. Well neither does Obama. Obama recently said the world is less violent now.  Really?  The whole world is up in flames and he says it’s less violent?  Talk about having no clue. Bill told this fantastic romance story about him and Hillary that sounded like a Harlequin romance novel when they had one of the worst marriages in history. It has been speculated that it was just a marriage of convience   anyway. He cheated on her with hundreds of women. She berated him and the staff constantly throwing tantrums and throwing ashtrays and vases at him. Now he jets off to Epstein’s pedophile Island 20 times. Doesn’t sound like a romantic marriage to me.

Howard Dean said 90% of the people are on Obamacare and Trump will take 20 million off of it. That’s a lie too as Obamcare is failing because it is too expensive and the deductibles are too high.

Obama gives a talk about how wonderful our democracy is when he has been ruling with his pen and phone by-passing congress.

Which brings  us to the final night.  In all the four nights almost every speaker attacked Donald Trump unmercifully. In fact they attacked Trump and republicans more than Trump and republicans attacked Hillary which shows the republicans are on a higher level in my book. They accuse him of fostering hate, but their vicious attacks on him amount to hate speech whether they know it or not. When I see some of these speakers sounding like preachers and rebel rousers and the people cheering wildly it tells me how easily these people are manipulated.

When I first started watching tonight Nancy Pelosi was on. I noticed she copied Trump by saying we must be smart and strong in combating ISIS. She also said if you are on the no fly list you should be on the no buy list. I seem to remember Trump saying that one time. Her speech was fairly tame and conservative sounding and I can deal with that kind of speech while disagreeing with it. Up until now no democrat speaker has mentioned ISIS. Trump and Sean Hannity criticized them for not mentioning ISIS so now they are mentioning it.

After Nancy, married  actors Ted  Danson and Nancy Steenburgen came out who had been friends with Hillary since 1978.They told how she fought for children and is tough and gets right back again after being knocked down. They introduced six young people who are having a tough time making ends meet and advocated for a $15 an hour minimum working wage.

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf talked about how Trump stiffed his employees and said he runs his businesses to enrich himself. He said Hillary will see that companies share their profits with their employees. Hey Tom I hate to tell you this, but most companies do that today with 401K plans. I know because that’s what I am living off of now.

Doug Elmets, a former Reagan speech writer copied Lloyd Benson’s speech with Dan Quayle that time saying “Donald I knew Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump you’re no Ronald Reagan.”  He was probably thinking no one would remember that  or else they were too young and not born at that time so I’m exposing him here. He said the republican convention was anti-white, anti-woman and anti-gay which was a big fat lie since women, blacks and gays spoke at the convention.

A young girl named Jennifer Perotti said she was a republican and voted republican all her life but felt republicans have abandoned their principles so she’s voting for Hillary. She said Trump’s comments about women were too crass to repeat here. Hey Jennifer never mind that Hillary does the same thing calling the women her husband raped and assaulted  “bimbos.”

A nice respectful part of the convention was when Dallas County Sheriff Lupe Valdez came out and gave a nice talk about respecting the police and asked for a moment of silence for fallen police officers. She then presented  members of families of fallen police officers.

Former NBA  baskeball player kareem Abdul Jabbar made an appearance on behalf of muslims and criticized Trump for wanting to register Muslims and prevent them from coming into the country. Hey Kareem Trump just wants a temporary ban on Muslims like Jimmy Carter did with  the  Irananians.  So far in the last ten years 3000 people have been killed by Muslims around the world not counting here on 9/11  and there have been five major attacks on our soil all by Muslims and it is reported that ISIS is in all fifty states now. A Muslim family who lost their son in Afghanistan in the army also criticized Trump for banning Muslims.

Retired General John Allen came out with a bunch of former veterans from previous wars. He gave a resounding speech that sounded like a cross between a college football coach pepping up his team in the locker room and a general psyching up the troops before going into battle. He said Hlllary is a strong leader who will protect us and defeat ISIS. He said our military is the strongest in the world and our allies will respect us. Does he realize that Obama has down sized us to pre -WW11 levels and we have to get spare parts for planes from airplane graveyards?

Finally the time came for Hillary. Introduced by her daughter who came out in a red dress telling stories about growing up with her mother and father, Hillary entered to thunderous applause and flags waving wearing a white pantsuit.

She spoke for an hour bashing Trump while pushing  her own qualifications, “I’ve been to 112 countries and we’re not weak,” she said. She criticized Trump on ISIS saying, “Don’t  believe  anyone who says I can fix it alone.” Trump shouldn’t have said that even though I know what he meant.

She said she’ll be a president of all Americans, Democrats, Republicans and Independents. She went into all the things that need fixing and said Wall Street, the rich and top 1% will pay their fair share. That’s where she fits is so I hope she chips in with all the millions she has in her Clinton Foundation.  

She bashed   Trump saying you can’t trust a man with nuclear weapons who tweets all the time. And said Trump does not offer real change. She also told the need to appoint supreme court justices. This is another reason this election is so important. Her judges will be far left judges.

I thought her speech was good, but very hypocritical in parts. I agree with Britt Hume who said her speech was very good , but her tone makes you feel like a high school kid being brought into the principal’s office to  have the riot act read to you. I can just imagine what it’s like around her like people who know her have said.

Hillary is all power and greed and will say and do anything to attain and keep that power and greed. So all you Hillary supporters don’t come crying and say’ Hillary what happened’ when she betrays you and she will betray you. All politicians do.

The Democratic Convention Day 2;The Fantasy World of Bill and Hillary!!

dem convention2

Comedian Tim Allen once said, “The Clintons are like herpes. As soon as you think they are gone they come back again.” On the second day of the Democratic Convention speakers concentrated on Hillary’s work with children and making sure people got good health care. All the speakers ended their speech with Hillary’s campaign slogan “I’m with her,” that got a little repetitive after a while. They also concentrated on racism in America and how Hilary cared about people who were the victims of gun violence.

The first half concentrated on Hillary’s work with Children in the past and her role with the Children’s Defense Fund.  Hillary Clinton, after completing law school, initially worked there as a staff attorney and eventually went on to serve as board chair.

After several speakers the theme switched to law enforcement and former attorney general Eric Holder came out and said that Black Lives truly matters.  The BLM people in the audience waved their signs and shouted “Black Lives Matter.” These are the same people who in the streets of New York were yelling “What do we want? Dead  cops.  When do we want them? Now” and “Pigs in a blanket. Fry ‘em like bacon.” Holder said we need someone who will protect the cops while they are alive and keep them safe. He stated that violent crime has come down since Obama took office. Really ??  Since Obama took office 3,470 blacks have been killed by other blacks in Chicago alone.

The convention then brought on the mothers of the movement which were mothers of Treyvon Martin, Jordan Davis, Michael Brown and Eric Garner who were all criminals killed by cops or guns .I feel sorry that they lost their sons but if their sons had obeyed the law they would be alive today. What would have been nice is if the dems had invited the mothers of the cops who were slain to join these mothers, but that’s not what this party is about. SHOCK: Look Who Democrats Just Invited to Speak At Convention… Police Horrif

Two actresses Lena Dunham and America Ferrara came out and attacked Trump saying he wants to make America hate again and showed a film claiming he called women derogatory names like fat pigs and bimbos, etc. They then praised Hillary to the highest. Well if we’re going to go down that path, Hillary called the women her husband raped and assaulted bimbos too and enabled her husband by sending out detectives to silence the women he assaulted. It was  called  “The Bimbo Eruption Unit” by her.

Howard Dean spoke and claimed that under Obama 90% of the citizens are covered by Obamacare and that Hillary will lower the cost of prescription drugs. He attacked Trump saying he will take 20 million people off healthcare plans in doing away with Obamacare and doesn’t have anything to replace it. Again these libs are not listening to him. Trump has said one option would be healthcare savings accounts and he would look into other options too.

In the end Bill Clinton came out. He looked better than I have seen him in the past and better than the way he looked in the film they showed so he must have been heavily made up for his appearance. He gave a very endearing, heart -warming speech about when he met Hilary and their whole life story, how he fell in love with her ,brought a house for her, had Chelsea and all the way up to her being first lady, sec. of state and urged everyone to vote for her. I just wondered how much of it was true or if it was all fantasy. I noticed his hands were shaking a lot which is why he probably kept them down below the podium. Maybe the rumors about him having parkinson’s  disease is true.  BILL CLINTON EXHIBITS SYMPTOMS OF PARKINSON’S DISEASE DURING IOWA RALLY SPEECH

In his speech which lasted 50 minutes Bill said Hillary is a change maker and every spot you drop her in she makes it better. Oh yeah?? Just look at Syria, Libya, Benghazi, Egypt and Iran. Everything she touches turns into a disaster. Overall it was a good speech though and better than all the others so far.

Bill Clinton delivered a lengthy stemwinder at the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday night, fondly recounting the story of his 41-year marriage to Hillary Clinton

But he largely skipped over the late 1990s — the most tumultuous period of his White House tenure and a time that put his relationship with his wife to the test. 

He recalled 1997, when his daughter, Chelsea, went off to college. And he spoke about how his wife worked with Republican leaders in Congress to pass a child healthcare proposal. 

But he did not mention his affair with then-White House intern Monica Lewinsky and his subsequent impeachment, which made headlines in 1998 and 1999. 

The ex-president’s decision to gloss over those years could have been an effort to place the focus on his wife instead of his own presidency. 

After all, dredging up the darkest time of their marriage could have humiliated Hillary Clinton on the same day she became the first woman to become a major party presidential nominee. Bill Clinton glosses over the ‘90s | TheHill

Dick Morris, former advisor to Bill Clinton before he turned republican had this to say about Hillary recently: Bill says: “Hillary was an excellent Senator who kept fighting for children’s and women’s issues.

She served on the board of the Arkansas Children’s Hospital.”

The facts are: Yes she did. But her main board activity, not mentioned by Bill, was to sit on the Wal-mart board of directors, for a substantial fee. She was silent about their labor and health care practices.

Hillary was the face of America all over the world.”

The facts are: Her visits were part of a program to get her out of town so that Bill would not appear weak by feeding stories that Hillary was running the White House. Her visits abroad were entirely touristic and symbolic and there was no substantive diplomacy on any of them.

I don’t mind a woman president, but not this woman. I want someone with good morals and character who  isn’t corrupt and is trustworthy and capable of making smart decisions.  Hillary is  very corrupt and will be corrupt as president. She’s willing to gamble with people’s lives by inviting a million refugees in here which ISIS will infiltrate and attack here. They already sent out notices saying Britain and the United States are next. Yes these are perilous times we are living in and Obama says the world is less violent. Give me a break!!!!

The Democrat Convention;Not Very Democratic!!

dem convention

The Democratic convention in Philadelphia got off to a rocky start between dissention,chaos and collusion Monday night.  Dissention because of all the Bernie Sanders supporters and collusion revealed in the hacked e-mails between the media, various groups opposing Sanders and  the DNC all out to get Sanders. The entire night’s speeches were typical liberal in that they were all emotional attacks on Trump devoid of fact which liberals feed on.

The first few speakers attacked Trump for being against gays and saying Hillary supports all people of all races and backgrounds while Trump does not. That in itself was a lie as he does support and hires gays. They also repeated that Hillary will support a woman’s right to choose and she has always fought or equal pay for equal work. If that were true then why does she pay her male workers $30,000 more than her female workers.  Trump pays his women employees more than his male employees and hires more women than men. In fact a woman built Trump Towers.

If Hillary  is so much for gays and the LBGT community then why doesn’t she give the money back to all the countries that assassinate  gays and treat women like trash that she accepted millions of dollars from in the first place?

Jesse Lipsen, Corporate head of Cloud Services said Trump and Pence will take rights away from you and will use fear tactics. He said Hillary will fight or you and not discriminate. I guess he never heard Hillary say  “ We’re going to take things away from you for the common good.”

 Some speakers said “We build bridges of love not walls of hate.” Another  typical liberal emotional slogan that is not immersed in reality. At that point singer Paul Simon came out and sang the hit song by him and Art Garfunkle “Bridge Over Troubled Waters” off key to a band that was equally off key and walked off as soon as he was done without saying a word. The RNC band was ten times better.

I thought the phoniest part of the evening was when Senator Al Franken and comedienne Sarah Silverman appeared. He said he was a Hillary supporter and she said she was a Bernie supporter. It was so scripted.  This was probably done to bring the two factions together.  When the camera from behind focused on them I could see a teleprompter   stored discreetly inside the top of the podium facing them. Their routine reminded me of something you’d see at these award shows that was so rehearsed, scripted and elitist and in the end she supported Hillary. Chants of “Bernie, Bernie, Bernie” shouted throughout the audience and Silverman appeared shocked. She then told the delegates they were being ridiculous and the chants continued. It was all so phony. Sarah Silverman Calls Bernie Sanders Supporters “Ridiculous” At DNC | Deadline

Corey Booker, the Senator from my state of New Jersey and former mayor of Newark gave a rousing speech that started out good with saying how America was founded on the Declaration of Independence that said all men are created equal and gave a good history lesson along those lines until he started trashing Trump calling Trump bigoted and discriminatory against gays, Hispanics and Muslims. Corey got louder and louder sounding like some preacher and you could see him sweating on his bald head.

Following Corey Michelle Obama spoke. Michelle talked about raising her two daughters  in the white house which was a new experience for them and in a slight dig at Trump and republicans she said she taught her daughters to ignore what they say about their father’s birth certificate and faith. She said America is the greatest place on earth and is already great and we should continue to make it great and don’t have to make it great again. I guess she considers  a country where 93 million people are out of the workforce, 50 million on welfare and 45 million on food stamps as great. Michelle said Hillary always fought for women and children and all people and that she never quits on anything. She also said her famous statement about “waking up every morning in a house built by slaves” meaning the white house. I never knew it was built by slaves.

Following Michelle Senator Elizabeth Warren came out and proceeded to tell lie after lie about Trump saying he was going to lower the minimum wage and raise everyone’s taxes and just give tax breaks to his millionaire buddies. She went into a whole litany of attacks on Trump saying he was going to get rid of Obamacare which has helped so many people. If five million people losing their healthcare is helping them then I don’t know what is. She said how Trump is dividing everyone and pitting people against each other. Hmm that’s funny since that’s what democrats have always done. She accused Trump of being an Oligarchy when Obama has been just that with just using his pen and phone bypassing congress. She went on about how Trump doesn’t have any plan for anything and didn’t say what he intended to do in his speech which was untrue. He laid out specifics in his speech. Warren also said nothing has trickled down to the people and  it’s all tax breaks for the rich. Well the democrats had eight years to take care of that and nothing changed.  I’ve noticed that democrats are always guilty of doing the same thing they accuse republicans of doing.

Finally at the end the big moment came with Bernie Sanders appearing on stage. He had a roaring   reception lasting about three minutes. His speech was powerful and direct and sounding more like Trump saying how the system was rigged and how we need a revolution to transform America for economic equality. Sanders said he was very disappointed in the nominating system with him and how it was rigged. His speech lasted one half hour and towards the end he endorsed Hillary and said how she must become the next  president . He stuck by his proposal of a $15 an hour minimum wage. He said Hillary understands how to create hundreds jobs and that Trump’s supreme court justices would threaten our rights and a woman’s right to choose. He also talked about the need for climate change and universal healthcare.

Bernie-Sanders

This endorsing Hillary turned a lot of his supporters off and he would have done much better if he laid out his ideas without endorsing her and walking off.

Meanwhile hundreds of his supporters demonstrated outside the convention and things seemed more chaotic than the republican   convention. I see shades of the 1968 democrat convention forming when riots occurred when Hubert Humphrey ran against Nixon.

Trump’s response on Sean Hannity’s show afterwards was that he thinks Bernie is tired and exhausted and is giving up.

Star Trek Beyond

Star-Trek-Beyond

Star Trek Beyond is the thirteenth movie in the franchise and the third one with the new young cast who look and act remarkably like the original ones would look like at that  young age.

Chris Pine who has the bluest of blue eyes and a good looking guy plays Captain Kirk and certain mannerisms and expressions are similar to William  Shatner’s Kirk only he’s more serious and doesn’t overact like Shatner did.. Zachary Quinto is the quintessential Spock looking like Leonard Nimoy and Karl Urban is Dr.“Bones” McCoy not only looks like a young McCoy but has his expressions and comments down pat. Wikepedia describes the basic plot this way: 

Three years into its five-year voyage, the USS Enterprise arrives at Starbase Yorktown to replenish dwindling supplies while the crew takes shore leave. Struggling to find continued meaning in their mission, Captain James Kirk has applied for a promotion to Vice Admiral of Yorktown. Meanwhile,Hikaru Sulu reunites with his partner and daughter, Spock and Nyota Uhura have amicably ended their relationship, and Montgomery Scott works to keep the ship operational. Spock also receives word that Ambassador Spock has died.

An escape pod drifts out of a nearby nebula. The survivor, Kalara, claims her ship is stranded on a planet in the nebula and the Enterprise is dispatched on a rescue mission. The rescue turns into an ambush when the Enterprise is overwhelmed by a massive swarm of ships and is badly damaged. The swarm’s alien commander, Krall, boards the ship searching for an alien artifact that Kirk had obtained on a recent mission. The swarm rips apart the Enterprise and the saucer section crashes to the planet as the crew abandons ship in escape pods.

On the planet’s surface, Sulu, Uhura and other surviving crew are captured by Krall. Kirk and Chekov, accompanied by Kalara, find the crashed saucer section. Kalara is discovered to be Krall’s ally when she attempts to retrieve the artifact for him. To escape Krall’s crew, Kirk activates the still-functional boosters, causing the saucer to lurch forward and crush Kalara. Meanwhile, a seriously wounded Spock and Leonard McCoy search for the other survivors. Spock tells McCoy that he intends to leave Starfleet to continue Ambassador Spock’s work on New Vulcan. Meanwhile, Scotty is rescued by Jaylah, a scavenger who previously escaped Krall’s encampment. She takes him to her makeshift home, the wreck of the USS Franklin, an early-generation Starfleet vessel that went missing over a hundred years ago. With Scotty’s help, the ship is repaired, and Scotty, Kirk and Chekov, and McCoy and Spock, reunite using the ship as a base. The group plans to raid Krall’s camp to rescue the crew and transport them to the Franklin then escape the planet. Meanwhile, Krall coerces a member of Kirk’s crew to hand over the artifact that she had kept hidden for Kirk. Krall reveals the artifact is the missing half of an ancient bioweapon that can disintegrate a humanoid lifeform in seconds. With the device now complete, Krall intends to attack Yorktown and kill its inhabitants, and, using its advanced technology, go on to attack the Federation.

Barely half an hour has passed in “Star Trek Beyond,” and the USS Enterprise is already getting blown to smithereens. First of all, its main thrusters are sheared off, which must spell trouble for the warp drive, and then the tubular body drops away, leaving only the central saucer. In short, everybody’s favorite spacecraft has just turned into one big galactic Frisbee. There’s a wonderful shot of Captain James T. Kirk (Chris Pine), safe in his ejection pod, gazing through the windshield at the flaming corpse of his beloved ship, which plunges down toward the crags of an unwelcoming planet.

The main crew escapes the explosions in pairs and arrive on the new planet and get separated. Spock and Dr. McCoy are together and their friendly adversarial banter is a hoot to hear. When Spock tells McCoy he is thinking of leaving the federation and hasn’t had the time to tell Kirk yet, Bones replies, “Boy he’s going to love hearing that. He can’t live without you. I on the other hand would throw a party” 😀 Another time when Bones attempts to remove a metal shard stuck in Spock he says, “Let’s see your heart is where most people have their livers which explains a lot about you.” 😀

Simon Pegg plays Montgomery Scott (Scotty) the ship’s engineer. He is rescued by a very interesting alien woman named Kaylah who is a tough warrior while being very attractive in a weird alien way with a pure white face with decorative tattoo like black lines going down it and a long flowing blonde pony tail. When she confronts Scotty he says “I’m an engineer. I fix things.” She replies “I know what an engineer is. I’ll help you find your friends if you’ll fix my house,” and takes him to her make-shift home which is an old early generation Starfleet ship.

My least favorite character was Chekov played by Anton Yelchin. I preferred the original Chekov much better as his accent seemed more realistic while this one seemed very forced and unnatural. Sadly Anton Yeltsin died right after finishing the film when his car came between him and a wall on his property. They dedicate the film to him and Leonard Nimoy in the end.

An interesting comment I thought was when the crew is at trying to take off in the old federation ship Scotty says,’ “Captain these old ships were built in space and not to take off in the atmosphere. That’s why they call them starships.”

There is also a hint of a relationship between Lt. Uhura and Spock more on her side than his.

Much controversy was made about the Sulu character being gay. That part is so miniscule that if you blinked you would miss it. They show Sulu saying good-by to his partner and their daughter in a distance and among a crowd   scene and that’s it. No words or actions or anything. It lasts about a second. Big deal!!! The hoopla over it was greater than the scene

The action is non-stop and well worth checking out. So far in opening week-end it has grossed 60 million dollars. Check out these great trailers.

Thunder of the Trump Train!!!

                     trump atconvention

After a rather slow beginning that was less energetic than the previous nights the final day of the RNC convention picked up steam leading to the introduction of Donald Trump.

Former NFL legendary quarterback Fran Tarkington started out by saying he looks at America and says “What the hell is going on here? We’re stuck in high taxes and regulation.” Fran said he had a small business once and a leader is one who gets things done. He said he’s known Donald Trump for 48 years and he gets stuff done.”

Tarkington  was followed by motivational speaker Brock Mealer, Representative Marsha Blackburn from Tennessee and Governor Mary Fallin of Oklahoma.

Republican head Reince  Priebus gave a speech saying America is  fed up with the way the country is going and said “We do not apologize for America, we celebrate it.”Preibus pointed out how Hillary and Obama gave Iran back 120 billion dollars with tax payer money and how she lied to the American people about Benghazi and Libya and how she lied and jeopardized our national security, “We have had enough and help is on the way,” Priebus said, “Donald Trump is the right man for the right job.”

A big surprise was when pay pal co-founder Peter Theil came out as gay saying,”  I am proud to be gay. I’m proud to be a Republican. And, I’m proud to be an American. The republican crowd gave him a standing ovation and started chanting USA! USA! USA! This was a good  thing to do because the DNC keeps pushing the myth that gays are not wanted in the republican party which is not true. Another lie they like to push. RNC GIVES GAY REPUBLICAN STANDING OVATIO

Finally Trump’s beautiful daughter Ivanka took the stage to introduce her dad. Dressed in a simple one piece pink summer dress Ivanka said how she is neither a republican or democrat, but votes on the person. She said her dad is a real fighter and her father sees potential in others before they see it in themselves and told of several incidents where her father saw people down on their luck in the papers, contacted them and had his assistants bring them up to his office and gave them a job. Ivanka emphasized her father’s empathy towards others and said he is colorblind and gender neutral. She also stated that her father employs more female employees than male employees and women are supported and paid more.

This was a good dig at Hilary since she pays her male executives at the Clinton Foundation $30,000 more than her female employees.

“He’s a fighter and a doer and ready to see it through,” She said before introducing Donald. IVANKA STANDS FOR DAD, COUNTRY.

Donald came out to a rousing cheers and standing ovation. He accepted the Republican nomination for president Thursday, promising anxious Americans that they will be safer and richer if he is elected in November.

Trump painted a dire state of affairs in the United States and the world — instability abroad and crumbling infrastructure at home — and blamed those problems on President Barack Obama and his former secretary of state, presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

“Under Hillary Clinton her bad judgments are the cause of all the disasters today. ISIS is spread across the world, Iraq is in chaos and so is Libya. Everything is worse than before. This is the legacy of Hillary Clinton,” he said.  “Death, destruction, terrorism and weakness. Our plan puts America first, safe borders and law and order.”

Trump said if he is elected we will be a country of generosity and growth and also law and order.”I am the law and order president,” Trump said giving off a list of recent cop killings and murders around the country, “ On Jan. 17th safety will be restored,” Trump said to thunderous applause. Trump says US will be safer, richer if he is president

Several times during the night the cameras scanned the whole arena to show the size of the crowd. I’ve seen all of Trump’s rallies  and he always asks the cameras to show the enormous crowds and they never did. Hear they did .

In a speech that lasted an hour and 15 minutes Trump gave off a whole litany of things that needed to be done to fix this country saying he could do it. They are all important things that need to be done and I don’t know if they can all be accomplished in four years, but he is known for accomplishing things under schedule and under cost. I would just be happy if he defeated ISIS, lowered the debt, balanced the budget and brought jobs back.

Trump mentioned that we must suspend immigration from any country that harbors terrorists until we can set up a proper vetting system. He mentioned that Hillary wants a 550% increase in Syrian immigrants on top of the ones already coming in here and there is no way to screen them. The refugees coming in here who are mostly Sunni refugees and those are the ones that form ISIS.

Trump ended his speech saying “It’s time to take America back ,bigger, better and stronger than ever before.”
