EU Corruption – It’s Not the Law, It’s Who You Know

eu commission

Today the unelected bureaucrats at the European Union (EU)came out with their tax judgement regarding multinational Apple –

Apple Inc. was ordered to repay a record 13 billion euros ($14.5 billion) plus interest after the European Commission said Ireland illegally slashed the iPhone maker’s tax bill.

The world’s richest company benefited from a “selective tax treatment” in Ireland that gave it a “significant advantage over other businesses,” the European Union regulator said Tuesday. It’s the largest tax penalty in a three-year crackdown on sweetheart fiscal deals granted by EU nations.

What the EU doesn’t mention is that the EU Chief has ignored helping his native Luxemburg become a tax haven for companies like Pepsi and Ikea –

The appearance of Jean–Claude Juncker before MEPs yesterday over the ‘LuxLeaks’ tax scandal was branded a ‘farce’, after the European Commission president spent little more than an hour answering questions before leaving early.

Mr Juncker, who was installed in his role at the top of the EU without being elected by taxpayers, dismissed suggestions he had been involved in helping major international companies such as Pepsi and Ikea set up favourable tax deals in his native country.

This is despite him serving as prime minister of Europe’s eighth least-populous state for more than 18 years.

The ridiculous treatment of taxing and penalizing some companies like Apple over other companies like Pepsi because Apple used Irish tax benefits over Luxemburg’s which were used by Pepsi is confusing. The ruling today makes no sense.

The people in the EU are beginning to put the pieces together and Brexit was just the beginning. For example, more than 77,000 Europeans signed a petition calling for “exemplary measures” against former European Commission Chief Jose Manuel Barroso for joining Goldman Sachs.

Barroso served as president of the European Commission for 10 years up to 2014. He joined Goldman Sachs as an advisor and non-executive chairman last month.

The Change.org petition was started by a “spontaneous group of employees of the European Institutions,” and is open until the end of the month.

Goldman Sachs is singled out as being “one of the banks most implicated in the subprime crisis that led to the financial crisis of 2007-2008 – the worst since the Great Depression – as well as one of the banks most involved in the Greek debt crisis, having helped Greece dissimulate its deficit before speculating in 2009-2010 against it in full knowledge of the unsustainability of its debt.”

Barroso’s new job has attracted criticism, especially from France. When his move was announced, the leader of France’s far-right, Marine Le Pen, said it was not surprising as because “the EU serves big finance, not the people.”

It looks like the people of the world are beginning to see the elitists for what they are – dishonest and greedy non-elected bureaucrats.

 

After Starting 2 Hours Late, Having Someone Yell ‘Pepe’, Having only 400 Show Up and Receiving 17,000 YouTube Dislikes – Hillary’s Exhausted With No More Campaign Rallies Scheduled

hillary kkk

Hillary Clinton’s campaign speech in Reno on Thursday is her last campaign event scheduled on her calendar. She does have the presidential debates scheduled but there are no more Clinton campaign rallies scheduled anytime in the future.

It is really no wonder. Hillary’s ‘Racist Pepe’ speech in Reno was horrible for all involved. For starters, it almost didn’t start – it was actually 2 hours late in starting. It is unknown if Hillary was ill or whether she was waiting for more people to show up. Finally, someone had the courage to tell her that the show must go on. Fortunately, the local union had a few members show or the numbers would have been worse.

Eventually her speech started and to the horror of most all in the audience it was full of racist name calling and angry contempt. To Hillary’s surprise not all in the meager gathering were on her side. One gentleman had had enough and when Hillary paused after a rant about the ‘Alt Right’ (a new term that no one to this day knows who or what it is) he screamed ‘Pepe’ (another term that is unknown to many to this day).

The man who screamed ‘Pepe’ was escorted out and the number of participants dropped to less than 400. Finally, after 31 minutes, the Presidential candidate who once called a KKK member her mentor, who has accepted $20k from the KKK this year and who is the candidate of choice for a current KKK Grand Dragon, was done.

The speech will go down in history as one of the most racist name calling speeches of all time. The live stream of the speech was hijacked by Trump supporters. To date it has received 4,000 ‘likes’ on YouTube but more than 17,000 ‘dislikes’.  The 17,000 is more than the number of campaign goers at Hillary events this month.  It was nasty.

Hillary Reno Speech

Overall, Clinton has held only 11 campaign events in the entire month of August and the turnout at these events was abysmal. It’s estimated that she only had a little over 10,000 people total at these events. This is less than 1,000 people showing up at each event and an average of less than 400 people per day that Clinton spoke to at her events during the month.

Donald Trump on the other hand has held 30 campaign events in August (counting this Saturday’s Roast in Iowa). He has campaigned in front of more than 170,000 people at these events and averages nearly 6,000 per event and averages seeing over 6,000 people per day in August.

It’s really no wonder that Hillary currently has no more campaign events scheduled. She must be sick or exhausted but her measly following must be grateful for no more delays and nasty speeches.

 

 

 

BIGGEST WIKILEAKS EMAIL FIND YET (Attached) – Hillary Claims Responsibility for Libya Coup which Led to Thousands of Deaths and Eventual ISIS Takeover

assange fox and friends

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange joined FOX and Friends on Friday to discuss the leaked Hillary Clinton emails.

Assange said the “most interesting and serious” information on Hillary Clinton is yet to be released. However, when pressed as to what is the most damaging email to date, Assange noted a stream of emails related to Hillary Clinton’s involvement in Libya. Assange stated that 1,700 emails were released related to Hillary’s involvement in Libya but perhaps none more damaging than the ‘Libya Tick Tock’ email or Hillary’s “internal brag sheet of how she was the person behind the Libyan catastrophe”.

After perusing WikiLeaks this email was located and as Assange warned it is extremely damaging for Hillary! In the email the Clinton team lists all the actions that Hillary took credit for as the architect of the US involvement in Libya.

Libya Tick Tock by Jim Hoft on Scribd

Hillary’s team gives Clinton credit for many actions that led to Qadhafi’s toppling in Libya including, but not limited to: suspending the operations of the Libyan embassy in Washington; evacuating US embassy personnel in Tripoli and closing the embassy there; obtaining sanctions against Qadhafi and his family; working to suspend Libya from the Human Rights Council; appointing Special Envoy Chris Stevens to be the U.S. representative to Benghazi; engaging with UAE, Qatar, and Jordan to seek their participation in coalition operations; holding meetings with House Democrats and Senate Republicans to persuade them not to de-fund the Libya operation; an lastly, it was noted that Hillary worked to construct a $1.5 billion assets package to the TNC.

Hillary saw this email sent to her from Cheryl Mills because as noted at WikiLeaks she asked for it to be printed in a subsequent email to a colleague.

This email proves that Clinton takes credit for being the architect behind the overthrow of Qadhafi in Libya and the subsequent horror as a result. It is now known that the TNC in Libya are no longer in charge but it is unknown what happened to the $1.5 billion Hillary pushed to provide to this group.

Hillary’s actions in Libya resulted in the eventual death of four Americans in Benghazi, including Chris Stevens. These Americans died due to Hillary’s and Obama’s inaction when they called for help when under attack in 2012 as was famously portrayed in the movie 13 Hours.

Clinton is also responsible for the thousands of violent Libyan deaths since her efforts to over throw Qadhafi. She is also responsible for the numerous atrocities in Libya over the past eight years. Today Libya is a quagmire and ISIS’s strongest branch outside the Middle East.

While Trump Holds Rallies #WheresHillary Crafts Announcements

Kissimmee Trump crowd

As the month quickly comes to a close, Donald Trump continues to build upon his big lead in campaign events and participants. Through August 25th, Trump has held 29 campaign events in August with an estimated 168,000 participants.  Clinton on the other hand has held only 11 campaign events attended by an estimated paltry 10,000.  Trump averages getting in front of more than 6,400 people per day in August at events while Clinton averages getting in front of only 400.

Overall, month to date Trump has nearly 3 times the number of events than that of Hillary and 16 times the number of participants. Clinton has held 5 of her 11 events in high school gyms which in many cases were half empty while Trump has held his events in arenas and other large facilities with at least 7 of his events (Columbus, Harrisburg, Ashburn, Wilmington, Abingdon, West Bend, and Akron) having reported overflow crowds.

 Trump vs Hillary Attendance 8-26

While the Trump campaign is busy holding rallies and other events throughout the day to promote their candidate, the Clinton campaign has a different approach. On the many days where Hillary has not held a campaign event, the Hillary campaign produces statements and announcements from the campaign on various topics to make themselves feel busy.

On August 6th the Hillary Campaign released a statement on the 51st anniversary of the Voting Rights Act.  On the 9th the Hillary campaign announced a response to Trump’s comments and on the 13th the campaign re-released their announcement from 2015 on Hillary’s medical records.  On the 14th they provided a statement on the Social Security Act Anniversary and on the 21st they announced Hillary had penned an essay for Teen Vogue.  It is unknown if anyone has read any of these announcements let alone all of them.  Odds are that it is highly unlikely that Clinton herself has read any of these announcements as well.

Hillary Clinton

In a surprise yesterday, the Hillary campaign held an event in Reno which was attended by only around 400 people (many of them union members) where Clinton accused Donald Trump and his fellow Republicans of being racist.  The surprise was not that a Democrat used race baiting as a political tactic but rather that Clinton held an event, since it had been more than a week since her last rally.

The results of the brilliant Clinton campaign strategy are that the Trump Campaign has taken a 2% lead in the polls.  #WheresHillary is now the #1 trending Twitter hashtag worldwide!

Clinton has spent $257m on her campaign to date to Trump’s $87m. In June it was reported that Clinton spent $23m on ads in swing states to Trump’s $0.  By mid-August Clinton had spent more than $75 million on advertising in 10 swing states to Trump’s $0. Trump has since invested a $5m in swing state advertising.  In spite of spending millions in negative advertising against Trump in highly competitive states like Pennsylvania, Hillary is falling behind in the polls.

Clinton’s Health is Now an Issue after a video of her having some sort of seizure was released that went viral.  She is getting destroyed on social media and there are expectations that WikiLeaks or the Russians may release more damaging Hillary emails before the election.

Based on all the above it is probably time for the Clinton campaign to release another announcement about what, who knows. No one will read it anyways.

Coulter on Hannity Discusses New Book – “In Trump We Trust”

Ann Coulter was on Hannity last night and covered many topics while promoting her new book –

ann coulter in trump we trust

In Trump We Trust – E Pluribus Awesome!

Coulter said the following when discussing the mainstream medias attacks against Breitbart

It’s because Breitbart put out Clinton Cash, which has been watched by more than 3 million people online.  I mean it’s been acknowledged by Washington Post, New York Times as absolutely devastating because it very clearly lays out the whole pay for play Clinton Foundation scam.  Where, they take money, Hillary does a favor as Secretary of State and then weirdly Bill Clinton gets hired to give a speech for $600,000. I mean it’s just so utterly obviously corrupt like everything else she does.

When discussing Hillary and Trump, Coulter said –

The Democrats and Hillary Clinton see African Americans only as voters. They don’t care about, the Democrats don’t care about your lives or your jobs.  Immigration and a border wall is the great unifier.  Trump promises to put Americans first, to protect their neighborhoods, but most of all to bring jobs back [and] to end these job killing trade deals.  He’s the first person to ever come along and say maybe we should care about just emptying out the manufacturing base of America and to stop dumping low wage workers on the country.  I mean that is the big issue he has.

Clinton Doctor Uses ‘Clinton Talk’ – Does She State Hillary is OK?

hillary parade dying

Hillary Clinton’s doctor released a statement in 2015 where she claims that Hillary is in “excellent” health and “fit to serve” as president. This was in spite of reporting that Clinton had fallen in December 2012 and as a result Hillary had a concussion and double vision and wore special glasses for two months. Hillary also received anticoagulation therapy to dissolve a blood clot in her brain at that time and still today receives daily anticoagulation treatment.

Clinton’s health is still in the news. A video of Clinton having some sort of seizure was released that went viral.

Then she had a similar response at the Democratic convention. A black man spotted repeatedly by Clinton’s side appears to be a doctor or medical professional. Many are speculating that her poor health is why she is not partaking in campaign events. She has only had 10 campaign rallies to date in the month of August compared to Trump’s 28.

Liberal media pundits around the world have come to Hillary’s defense making irresponsible claims about Clinton’s health to no avail. As a result Clinton’s doctor has come out with another statement regarding Clinton’s health. But in typical ‘Clinton Speak’ the doctor said,

As Secretary Clinton’s long time physician, I released a medical statement during the campaign indicating that she is in excellent health.

I have recently been made aware of allegedly ‘leaked’ medical documents regarding Secretary Clinton with my name on them. These documents are false, were not written by me and are not based on any medical facts.

To reiterate what I said in my previous statement, Secretary Clinton is in excellent health and fit to serve as President of the United States.

It is not clear whether the doctor states Clinton is in excellent health or if she ‘reiterates’ what she said in her previous statement.

Bill Clinton was famous for wordsmithing stating under oath in a sexual harassment trial against himself, “It depends what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is.”

Hillary’s doctor now reminds us why Bill Clinton was one of only two American Presidents to be impeached. With Bill and Hillary and now Hillary’s doctor the English language takes on a whole new meaning.

Clinton Anti-Poverty Plan (with No New Jobs and More Government Handouts) Falsely Claims to Help Republicans more than Democrats

Hillary Clinton

An anti-poverty plan promoted by Hillary Clinton provides government handouts to certain poverty stricken areas above others.  The plan is the brain child of Democrat Black Caucus member Jim Clyburn from South Carolina.  He believes it will work because billions of dollars will flow into the neediest areas.

Clinton stated that this “program would target a lot of places in America, not only inner city poverty but rural poverty, Indian country poverty, coal country poverty.” Rather than bring these areas jobs which have been lost due to Democratic policies like those that have recently destroyed coal companies, Democrats believe that by giving more tax payer dollars to these areas the situation will be solved. This unbelievable non-sense is why Democratic policies have destroyed these communities in the first place. The Congressional Black Caucus limits it membership to Black, Democrat Congressmen and women.  Clyburn, a member of the group, uses 2009 Congressional District data for his assertion that Republican counties will be helped more than Democratic counties with his government money give away.  However in 2009, when Obama was first inaugurated, the House of Representatives was made up of 257 Democrats and 178 Republicans.  This number has drastically changed.  By 2012 the House was made up of 234 Republicans and 201 Democrats which is very similar to the proportion today.

In our previously reported study of 2013 Congressional districts, 36 of the poorest 39 districts in the US are Democrat districts while working class districts in the US are represented by Republicans by a two-to-one ratio. The only household income categories that correlated with Democratic led districts were those with incomes less than $10,000, incomes between $10,000 and $14,999, incomes between $150,000 and $199,999, and incomes greater than $200,000.  Data proves that Democrats represent the very poor and super rich.

Clyburn and Clinton must know that Clyburn’s plan is another self-serving Democratic program that doesn’t address the root cause to poverty (i.e. no jobs) but rather is a money drop to Black Caucus and other Democratic Congressional Districts.

An article reported in Politico stated that Clyburn’s program was supported by Hillary Clinton and House Speaker Paul Ryan. The headline of the post “Clinton, Ryan team up on anti-poverty planclaims that Ryan is behind the plan but the article provides little to support this. In the article, Politico claims that Ryan “… has been largely mum on the plan in public, despite having given his tacit approval.”  The article goes on to note that a Ryan spokesperson said that Ryan is focused on the House’s Better Way agenda which includes the poverty plank but this is in no way an endorsement from Ryan.

(Politico is the same news organization whose top tier reporter sent his story about the Clinton fund raising machine to the DNC for approval before providing to his editors as was uncovered by the WikiLeaks email dump right before the Democratic convention.)

Some things never change – Democrats continue to pad their pockets and those of their constituents with tax payer money and the poor in America continue to remain in poverty.

G’day Mate – Even Aussies are Beginning to See Liberal Media Bias – #WheresHillary Trending #1 Globally

Hillary - Where's HillaryAfter months of media bashing the Trump Campaign has taken a 2% lead in the polls and it’s even worse for the Clinton campaign.  The media blitz against Trump has not only failed but there are signs that it is beginning to break.

This week even Aussie website news.com.au shared, “Donald Trump accuses Hillary Clinton of ‘sleeping’ as #WheresHillary goes viral.” #WheresHillary is now trending #1 worldwide and even the Aussies notice!

Hillary - Where's HIllary 2

The more the media bashes Trump, the more Trump gains in the polls. Average Americans are beginning to see how incredibly biased the media is.  It appears that the dike has cracked and from this point forward the media campaign to bash Trump only hurts Clinton and her biased media allies.

Hillary - Where's Hillary 3

Americans and now people around the world are becoming aware of the liberal media bias while the polls which are designed to put Hillary ahead are now showing her behind.  Trump campaign event attendees have been heard cheering – “Do Your Job!” to the media.  It now is clear that the media cannot be partial and Americans are seeing right through it as well as the world.

By the Numbers – Clinton’s Campaign is Imploding!

When looking at the numbers things could not be going any worse for the Hillary Clinton campaign.

hillary angry

She’s Behind in the Polls

After months of media bashing the Trump Campaign has taken a 2% lead in the polls. The media blitz against Trump has not only failed but there are signs that it is beginning to move in Trump’s favor. The more the media bashes Trump, the more Trump gains in the polls. Average Americans are beginning to see how incredibly biased the media is.

From this point forward the media campaign to bash Trump only hurts Clinton. It puts the media in the same camp as ‘Corrupt’ Hillary and therefore helps Trump. Americans are tired of the media bias and the polls which are designed to put Hillary ahead are now showing her behind. The Trump campaign event attendees have been heard cheering – “Do Your Job!” to the media. It now is clear that the media cannot be partial and Americans are seeing right through it.

She Blew Through $75m in Advertising and Went Down in the Polls

Clinton has spent $257m on her campaign to date to Trump’s $87m. In June it was reported that Clinton spent $23m on ads in swing states to Trump’s $0. By mid-August Clinton had spent more than $75 million on advertising in 10 swing states to Trump’s $0. Trump has since invested a $5m in swing state advertising.

Clinton’s campaign ads are not working. In spite of spending millions in negative advertising against Trump in highly competitive states like Pennsylvania, Hillary is falling behind in the polls. The fact that biased media attacks and negative advertising don’t seem to impact the race and only help Trump puts Clinton in a quandary. These were her only tools to beat Trump in the election. Now she seemingly has nothing.

No One is Showing Up at Her Events

Hillary Clinton has only one Clinton campaign event scheduled (on Thursday in Las Vegas) in the foreseeable future. No other campaign rallies are currently scheduled! Trump on the other hand continues to materially outpace Hillary Clinton in rallies and in attendance at campaign events. Through the first three weeks of August Trump has more than doubled the number of events that Clinton has. Month to date through Sunday August 21st Trump has held 24 campaign events to Clinton’s 10. He also has events scheduled daily through Thursday, August 25th. (Note that this list only includes individual campaign speaking engagements and not fundraisers or visits with government and corporate leaders which Trump appears to be materially outpacing Clinton as well.)

Due in part to the number of events held, Trump continues to significantly outpace the number of event goers that Clinton has month to date. Trump has accumulated more than 135,000 people at his rallies while Clinton has accumulated only a little more than 10,000. As a result Trump has 13 times more attendees at his events than does Hillary.

Trump vs Hillary Attendance 8-21

While Trump continues to smash Clinton in attendance at events, Clinton continues to take time off. Clinton has only held campaign rallies ten of the first 21 days in the month and as noted above she has no campaign event scheduled till Thursday. Clinton is now holding campaign events less than 50% of the time. Either the Clinton campaign does not want to show that no one is coming to her events or she is sick or both.

Her Health is Now an Issue

A couple recent events bring to light Clinton’s health. A video of her having some sort of seizure was released that went viral.

Then she had a similar response at the Democratic convention. A black man spotted repeatedly by Clinton’s side appears to be a doctor or medical professional. Although there is no word from the Clinton campaign regarding health issues, if she is sick then she risks getting sicker if she holds more campaign events. Also, the more time she spends in public the greater the chance of her having another episode that is recorded. This may be why she is not partaking in campaign events.

She is Getting Destroyed in Social Media

Trump is crushing Clinton in basically every conceivable numerical measure on social media. He has double the Facebook ‘likes’ (10m to 5m), a 5 to 4 ratio (11m to 8m) in Twitter followers, averages 30,000 livestream viewers on YouTube to Hillary’s 500, and ‘Hillary for Prison’ has more Reddit subscribers (55,000) than Hillary subscribers (24,000) while Trump has nearly 200,000 Reddit subscribers.

These numbers are simply staggering.

More Emails are Coming

Right before the Democratic convention, WikiLeaks released 20,000 damaging emails hacked from the Democratic party. Now there are expectations that WikiLeaks or the Russians may release more damaging Hillary emails before the election. How many more is currently unknown but the result will be like an unseen kick to the head.

Based on all the above numbers it is clear that the Clinton campaign is in major trouble and it is unlikely that her campaign will ever recover.

Another Clinton Conspiracy – TWA 800

A photograph of the right side of the large three-dimensional reconstruction, with the support scaffolding visible. (Figure 29)

Investigative journalist and author Jack Cashill earlier this month shared at the American Thinker website his concerns with the direction the Cato Institute was taking during with this election.  He was dismayed with the receipt of a mailer from this organization that is “dedicated to the principles of individual liberty, limited government, free markets and peace.”  The mailer was a fundraising letter from conservative comic writer P.J. O’Rourke who is a Hillary Clinton endorser. Cashill asked which of these principles, would a Hillary presidency ensure?  The answer, of course, is none.

Cashill states that Hillary will appoint a judiciary fully indifferent, if not hostile, to the Constitution Cato claims to cherish.  “More than five million copies in print,” the Cato website boasts of its pocket-sized Constitution, “this edition’s influence has been observed far and wide.” Unfortunately the Cato Institute which has written some good conservative pieces in the past is now derailed and we can only pray they come to their senses before the election. Cashill also has a new book out that discusses yet another incident involving the Clinton’s where a crime was committed, the American public were duped with the help of the mainstream media and then the Clinton’s took numerous activities to cover up the whole incident.  Cashill’s book, TWA 800: The Crash, the Cover-Up, The Conspiracy, was published last month on the twentieth anniversary of the disaster.

When TWA 800 flight crashed off the coast of the FBI after interviewing 144 witnesses concluded there was a “high probability” that a surface-to-air missile destroyed the 747. Cashill establishes that enough information supported this probability and the Clinton’s tried to cover it up to protect themselves from yet another embarrassing public situation with legal consequences.

Cashill provides yet another example of why Americans, all of us, including the Cato Institute cannot afford another corrupt Clinton presidency.
