WATCH: If Every American Saw This 3 Minute Video, Hillary Clinton Wouldn’t Stand A Chance

National Review just released a video compiling in less than three minutes some of the main reasons Hillary Clinton is not a trustworthy choice for the highest office in the land.

The video, which is entitled Who is Hillary Clinton?, opens with various high profile Democrats offering their reasons why Clinton is the best choice. She is the “most qualified,” they all appear to mimic.

“And by the way, thoroughly vetted,” one notes.

The video then delves into several recent revelations (covered by National Review), including:

1) Her use of a personal email server while secretary of state

2) Her wiping that server clean of all those emails, while purporting to turn over hard copies of all the work-related emails to the State Department (which is required by the Public Records Act)

3) The conflicts of interests in play as she served as secretary of state–her husband earned millions of dollars in speaking fees, and the Clinton Foundation took in tens of millions in foreign donations (the most egregious example perhaps being the Uranium One deal with Russia).

4) Her failure to turn over all work-related emails to the State Department, as previously claimed

5) The revelation in some of those emails that Sidney Blumenthal provided solicited, not unsolicited, counsel to Clinton on Libya and other matters, contrary to what she previously claimed. All this occurred while Blumenthal was employed at the Clinton Foundation and had personal business interests in Libya.

Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee asks one important, overarching question concerning her effectiveness as secretary of state (while all the above was going on): “Name one country on this planet, which we have a better relationship than we have in January, 2009?”

As reported by Western Journalism, former President Jimmy Carter asked the same question last week.

A clip of Clinton’s own campaign video brings NRO’s to a close. “Let the conversation begin, I think it’s going to be very interesting,” the candidate says.

WJ Exclusive: Sacramento Resident Says State Blatantly Violating Its Own Water Restrictions

According to Sacramento, Calif., resident David Powell, his state is dealing with an ongoing drought by forcing citizens to pare down water use to a bare minimum while allowing government entities – specifically the State Capitol – to ignore such restrictions.

He shared his experience in a recent interview with Western Journalism, explaining that he and other Californians are permitted to water their residential lawns just two days per week. The Capitol lawn, however, reportedly gets doused by sprinklers every evening.

“Every day I drive by there between 9 and 11 p.m.,” he said, “and it’s going.”

Powell, an outspoken conservative activist, has documented his claims in a series of YouTube videos, the latest of which he uploaded June 16.

He has also chronicled his observations on Facebook, sparking some heated criticism of Gov. Jerry Brown and the apparently hypocritical enforcement of his statewide regulations.

In the recent interview, he explained that previous complaints to the city were met with a diplomatic response but no observable results. Western Journalism contacted one utilities department employee who confirmed that two complaints were filed on the same day earlier this month, both alleging that the Capitol lawn was being watered in violation of existing restrictions.

Both complaints were filed anonymously, the source confirmed, noting a supervisor would need to review the report in order to provide any further details. That manager had not responded to Western Journalism’s request for comment as of this writing.

Powell, a veteran of the U.S. Air Force, began looking into the Capitol’s water use after noticing that much of the surrounding lawn was in immaculate condition – with the notable exception of a veteran’s memorial on the grounds.

He said the memorial “looked like a complete disgrace,” noting that even though there are few trees shading the area around the monument, “there’s hundreds of other spots on the Capitol where no trees are that are constantly watered.”

Should California’s government be forced to abide by the same restrictions it places on citizens? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.

2016 Election – It’s The Corruption, Stupid

There is a potential winning coalition in America, one including Democrats and Republicans, men and women, and all racial and ethnic groups, who believe in one simple proposition – honest, representative government.

We do not have either.

What we do have is a political-media system representing the interests of an oligarchy, a form of government in which all power is vested in a dominant class. It is composed of financiers and their political and media whores, who finance their avarice by using the tax revenues squeezed from hard-working Americans as a personal hedge fund.

The present American political system is a “totalitarian democracy“, one in which “lawfully” elected representatives rule a nation-state whose citizens, although granted the right to vote, have little or no participation in the decision-making process of government, nor whose views are ever seriously considered except when they parallel the interests of the oligarchy.

The United States may have traveled too far down the road to perdition to be saved; but if there is to be salvation, the American people must recognize and directly address the single, most important issue facing the country: the hopeless corruption of our political-media culture.

American politicians, collectively, both Democrat and Republican, do not believe in representative government and care nothing about the Constitution or the rule of law, but in the pursuit of personal power and profit through the use of unconstitutional executive power, a warped legislative process, and a constant stream of guaranteed taxpayer revenues. Both parties use campaign deception, practice political expediency, engage in crony capitalism, and, when necessary, promote voter fraud to sustain the corrupt status quo.

The media support the oligarchy by preserving the illusion of democracy, enabling tyranny by misinforming or manipulating Americans and, thereby, facilitating the very corruption the people’s “watchdog” was meant to prevent.

We have developed into something akin to what Sheldon S. Wolin called a “managed democracy,” where a governmental cartel stages elections every few years to obtain voter acquiescence in a “country where citizens are politically uninterested and submissive–and where elites are eager to keep them that way.”

In Commentaries on the Constitution (1833), Joseph Story wrote:

“Let the American youth never forget, that they possess a noble inheritance, bought by the toils, and sufferings, and blood of their ancestors; and capacity, if wisely improved, and faithfully guarded, of transmitting to their latest posterity all the substantial blessings of life, the peaceful enjoyment of liberty, property, religion, and independence.”

To paraphrase Christopher Hitchens, the vacant servitude to an oligarchy requires a society to lose any sense of its own history and traditions. Subjected to media deception and leftist historical revisionism, the low-information voter will submit to tyranny through a combination of governmental coercion and the hedonist nihilism of the painless, amusement-sodden, and stress-free consensus managed by the all-intrusive nanny-state.

The administration of Barack Obama has stripped away any pretense regarding the depth of government corruption, the extent of media complicity, or the willingness of Republicans to defend the vested interests of the oligarchy.

Obama’s extreme leftist beliefs and his love for, if not strict adherence to, Islam lead him to embrace policies not in the best interest of the United States, while his arrogance and narcissism prevent him from admitting failure and changing course.

Nevertheless, the Republican Party has consistently joined Obama and the Democrats to pass legislation and enact policies opposed by a majority of Americans.

I would like to think that it was all just incompetence, a befuddled political leadership offering unworkable solutions for misunderstood problems executed by ignoramuses.

Unfortunately, it is far more sinister. We have met the enemy, and he is government.

The Real Threat To America Does Not Come From Those Wearing Turbans On Their Heads Yelling, “Allahu Akbar.”

“No matter how paranoid or conspiracy-minded you are, what the government is actually doing is worse than you imagine.” ― William Blum United States Department of State

America, I have a question for you. Who is the government? The government in this country is the people. So, when you hear people make reference to “they” as the government, you need to understand that “they” is you! “We the people” really does mean something, according to the United States Constitution.

Now that we have got that straight…

Recently, I was watching a video in which a woman was exposing some serious corruption within the system of American government. As she gave details to the high crimes of those who “derived their powers from the consent of the governed” (The Declaration of Independence), she pointed out that many people, who were on the inside, were a part of what she was exposing. They were willing to come forward if others were willing to do the same, but many were just too scared to stop the crimes that they are committing on behalf of their employer.

Our veterans fought, bled, and died to give these scared employees the freedom with which they now live (John 15:13). However, they don’t consider our veterans.

Those who serve “We the people,” in whatever capacity, whether it be the president of the United States, a representative, or a soldier in the military, all take an oath before God to “faithfully discharge the duties” of their offices.

After I had started to ponder what this woman from the video was saying, I started to recollect what took place at the Nuremberg trials after Hitler’s Third Reich was toppled.

In May 1945, President Harry Truman said at the beginning of the court proceedings: “The Laws of God and of man have been violated, and the guilty must not go unpunished” (1 Timothy 1:7).

I watched those who were guilty of doing Hitler’s killing for him try to excuse themselves from the guilt by claiming they were just following orders.

In their minds, it was Hitler’s fault. They were attempting to point the finger at him to rid themselves of guilt for the crimes they committed.

Hitler could never have done what he did if it were not for those who subjected themselves to his tyrannical rule and did his bidding. Remember, these men had taken an oath to protect Germany. I wonder if they were the same kind of people who were just too afraid to resist the order to kill the innocent. In the end, they were just as guilty as the devil they complained about.

So, what is the difference between Hitler and his murderers? Absolutely nothing! Were they to take orders from the devil and disobey God? No, but that is exactly what they did.

This is exactly what is happening in America today, and The Church is guilty of teaching just that. Yet, you cannot find anything in Scripture that can sustain their wicked imaginations (Micah 3:5).

Remember Peter and the other apostles who told the authorities of the day that “We ought to obey God rather than men” (Acts 5:29).

Instead of bringing their crimes to light, there are those who remain silent, in service to the corrupt, and watch the corruption spread (Psalm 94:16; Amos 5:15).

They are just too afraid to resist and confront those who are giving orders contrary to the oath of their office they swore to uphold. This includes the President of the United States, who works for the people.

The real threat to you and your freedoms in America does not come from those wearing turbans on their heads yelling, “Allahu akbar.” The real threat comes from Americans who promise to do one thing, namely upholding and magnifying the law of our constitutional republic (Article 4 section 4) against foreign and domestic enemies, but do the bidding of those who are attempting to tear down our republic and re-create it in their own image. It is these people who tolerate crime which will be used to bring America to its destruction.

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

An American Duty to our Nation:

Watch: One Of Hillary’s Key Claims About Her Emails Just Got Obliterated…By Bill Himself

A whistleblower has come out with startling allegations pertaining to Hillary Clinton’s personal email server. Supposedly key sections of an Inspector General’s report were allegedly removed in order to protect Hillary Clinton politically before she stepped down from her position as secretary of state.

The unnamed whistleblower claims there was corruption at the State Department while Hillary was in charge. The source also claims that sections of the report disappeared just days before it went public, coincidentally around the same time that Clinton stepped down from her position.

Republican lawmakers have requested that the former secretary of state surrender her personal server for examination; in response, she has said she will not. She firmly asserts that her private server contains personal information, including communication between her and her husband.

Bill Clinton has repeatedly said that he does not send emails. He claims to have only sent two his entire life, neither of them to his wife. One was to U.S. troops serving in the Adriatic; the second was to astronaut John Glenn. He explained: “I found people said embarrassing things on emails. I didn’t want to be one of them.” This information directly contradicts what Hillary Clinton said about her server containing personal correspondence between the couple.

Republican lawmakers are concerned about the contents of Clinton’s private server, and there are allegations by the whistleblower that the deleted sections of the IG report contain information directly related to a cover-up of misconduct by her security team.

One of the sections that has allegedly been edited out of the report states: “…a senior ‘7th floor’ department official ordered (diplomatic security) to stop the investigation of an ambassador accused of pedophilia and another such senior official had (diplomatic security) stop an investigation of an ambassador-designate.”

The State Department said that “a review found no evidence of undue influence on diplomatic service investigations”; and “they did a separate review of all these allegations, bringing in some Department of Defense investigators to try to get some independent eyes on it.”
