December, 2018, Part 1, Political Class Insanity: Genital Mutilation Okay, The Clintons Bomb, and Obama's Never Resolved Scandals

It is another month which means it is again time to review the latest political class insanity from Washington and around the world. Political class insanity takes many forms including the wasting of taxpayer wealth, criminal fraud within government programs, inane and stupid political quotes and actions, the inability to create and implement effective and efficient government programs, stupid and ill performing economic policies and strategies, and other forms of insanity that continue to evolve and surprise and shock us.

Let’s get started:

1) The Minnesota state legislature is currently working on legislation that would ban the genital mutilation of young girls, a barbaric practice of the Muslim religion. One would think that everyone would want to ban this crude and painful process and that how could anyone support such terror practiced on young girls.

One would think that but one would be wrong, according to a recent Liberty Planet website article:
  • Ilhan Omar, the first Muslim woman elected to Congress, says not so fast when it comes to banning female genital mutilation in the state.
  • She is opposed to the bill “that is designed to impose harsh penalties to parents who force their girls to have this procedure.”
  • She has stated that the bill is too harsh for offenders, i.e. those that commit genital mutilation against young girls, a stand that I personally find repulsive.
  • The current proposed legislation would make the act a felony, would allow parents to lose custody of their kids for allowing such a process on their own daughters, and possibly prison terms.
  • Only four members of the Minnesota House voted against the bill.
So now Ms. Omar will bring this position to Congress and the national stage. I cannot imagine what the reaction of liberals and Democrats would have been if a Republican or conservative came out and said that the mutilation of young girls is a good thing. And yet, in this country and age of female equality, a member of Congress dares to have this barbaric position. Insanity.

2) While we find most politicians to be useless, self serving, and never knowing when to just go away, the Clintons seem to have taken these traits to a new level. They are currently on a joint, Trump bashing speaking tour around the world, never missing an opportunity to make some big bucks off of their notoriety. But maybe, just maybe their run at doing anything to make a buck is finally coming to an end, according to an article on the Zero Hedge website by Tyler Durden:
  • Only 3,300 tickets were sold to hear the Clintons up at the Scotiabank arena in Toronto, an arena that holds almost 20,000 people.
  • As you can see, a lot of people showed up to hear them disguised as empty seats:

  • This comes out to roughly an 83% vacancy rate.

  • Hopefully the rest of the tour goes as badly and these folks will finally just go away, we do not need them going around the country and the world and bad mouthing the current, legally elected and so far, very successful President.
But another aspect that was interesting was the return of Hillary’s coughing fits. As you may recall, there were many times when she coughed so much in public that she could not speak. That trait returned again in Toronto, again causing speculation that she is not a healthy woman. Another reason for her to just go away, a two time, hateful lying politician that is possibly not healthy enough to stand up to the rigors of being President. To see her coughing fit, go to:

3) While it looks like Hillary Clinton is bombing in the present, much like she did in 2016, The Horn News website recently reminded us of five Obama scandal fails that were never resolved. Remember when Obama once claimed that his administration was scandal free? In fact, Matt Margolis, author of the book, “The Scandalous Presidency of Barack Obama” says that, “Many of Obama’s scandals covered in my book make Watergate look like a high school prank gone wrong by comparison.” His writing documents 29 major Obama scandals!

We have discussed the reality of how out of touch that claim is but let’s look back at five of his biggest scandals that were never fully resolved and its culprits brought to justice:

1-Obama was so desperate to sign a nuclear arms treaty with Iran that he actually short circuited a major anti-drug effort by the Federal government. According to reporting to left leaning Politico, Iran’s terrorist proxies, Hezbollah, were working with South American drug cartels to sell cocaine in the U.S. to fund their terror activities. They also used used car dealerships in the U.S. to launder their drug money.

The Feds were close to shutting down the terror/drug connection via their Project Cassandra. But Iran threatened to not sign Obama’s nuclear agreement if this drug operation was shut down. Obama, desperate for some type, any type of legacy folded immediately. As a result he signed a ridiculously lousy agreement and allowed terrorists to continue to addict American kids and fund their terror efforts.

2- He promised to close the terrorist prison at Guantanamo Bay but a) failed at that effort and b) he ended up freeing hundreds of terrorists from Guantanamo Bay but many (224) ended up returning to terrorism, endangering American soldiers and citizens around the world. When asked, “Is there a possibility of some of them trying to return to activities that are detrimental to us?” he replied “Absolutely.” He just didn’t care.

3- Obama actually had the gall to spy on Congress, a clear violation of the Constitution and the separations of power as envisioned by the Founders. He did so to try and identify and punish whistleblowers who were telling the world and Congress how corrupt the Obama administration was. According to Senator Chuck Grassley: “The CIA under the Obama administration was reading congressional staff’s e-mails.” 

4- We have often discussed how Obama attacked companies that dared to not support him (see Gibson guitars) or used taxpayer money to favor his political supporters (see Solyndra). But consider this extensive abuse of government power to support his friends: “Obama hated businesses — but he only tried to ruin companies if it would make his friends big bucks.

Two of his buddies, Marty Nesbitt and Harreld Kirkpatrick III, formed an investment firm called Vistria right about the time Obama got re-elected. Obama spent his second term attacking companies — payday lenders, coal mines, for-profit colleges — that they wanted to buy…and driving down their stock prices. “A curious pattern began to emerge,” wrote researcher Peter Schweizer in his book Secret Empires: How Our Politicians Hide Corruption and Enrich Their Families and Friends. “Obama and his administration would attack industries with government power, which led to substantially lower valuations for these companies. Nesbitt and Vistria, or others close to Obama, could then acquire those assets for pennies on the dollar.” It pays to have friends in high places!”

5- Obama not only spied on just about every American’s electronic communications and on Congress, but he also apparently spied on Trump’s election campaign. Mr. Margolis thinks this is Obama’s worst scandal: “There are many serious scandals, and therefore it’s hard to say which is the biggest scandal but I believe Obama’s spying on the Trump campaign, which is starting to be fully unraveled now, will likely prove to be one of the biggest.”

Obama’s extensive scandals, Hillary’s flop in Canada, and Obama exacerbating Americans’ drug addictions for a personal, shallow political legacy. More insanity to follow.
