Hillarious: Commander in Thief and So Charitable. Donald and The Press - He Cannot Control His Appetite To Get Bitten. Milwaukee and RIO!

Wedding pictures from our grandson's recent wedding in Nashville.

A new way to define charitableness - Hillarious. (See 1 and 1a below.)
Liberals love to attack veterans running for office. That is how my friend, Lt. Col. Allen West, lost
his seat.  Allen was too conservative for his Politically Correct district and also, he was a decorated veteran and Liberals have a problem with  those who serve our country, protect their freedom and allow them to engage in free speech, often hateful.  Sad indeed.  (See 2 and 2a  below.)

To allow Sean Hannity to direct your campaign demonstrated Trump's shallowness.
The press and media have totally stacked the deck against Trump and nothing he says will be allowed to stand unrebuked. The distorted parade is being led by The New York Times which has now reached the low level of allowing reporters to become op ed opinion writers on the front page.  Tragic how a once great newspaper became a trashy yellow journal.

But it does not stop with Trump is also spills over in The New York Times bias against Israel! (See 3 below.)


Donald Trump’s declaration this week at a campaign rally that President Obama and Hillary Clinton “founded” ISIS drew outrage from establishment media, and the Republican nominee now insists he was being sarcastic, but a Defense Intelligence Agency document declassified last year shows the Obama administration was warned in 2012 that if it continued its policies, a radical Islamic regime could form in Eastern Syria.
"Tolerance is the last virtue of a fallen society."      Aristotle
I was just thinking - not long ago GM was building cars in Flint, Michigan and you couldn't drink the water in Mexico.

After seven and a half years of President Obama, GM now builds cars in Mexico and you can't drink the water in Flint, Michigan.

Hope and Change delivered as Milwaukee turns into RIO!   (See 4 below.)

1)  SHOCK: 96% Of Hillary’s Charitable Donations Went To 1 “Charity”

Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and her campaign on Friday released her 2015 tax return, which showed that she and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, donated roughly 9 percent of that year’s income to charity, around $1.1 million.

While that may sound generous to some, it was pointed out by Mediae that about 96 percent of that total went to one particular “charity,” where of course the donation was written off by the Clinton's on their personal income tax return.
The charity in question? None other than the Clinton’s own Clinton Foundation, a tax-exempt charity that has been alleged to be little more than a money-laundering slush fund to be used for the enrichment of the Clinton's and their friends and allies.

Though some of the money donated to and raised by the foundation does go toward actual charitable work, there have been numerous reports detailing the rather extensive and exorbitant overhead costs and salaries of the foundation’s employees.

In fact, some charity raters and watchdog groups have struggled to give a clear picture of the foundation’s actual charity work or give it a proper rating because the foundation has an atypical business model far different than the vast majority of other charitable organizations.
This on top of countless allegations of major donations from foreign businesses and leaders, who are alleged to have received favors in return from the Clinton’s and the U.S. government during her tenure as secretary of state in what strongly resembles a “pay-to-play” scheme.

So, in summation, the Clinton's donated $1 million to their own tax-exempt charity, which was written off of their personal taxes and which wasn’t taxed as part of the foundation, which was then used to pay for their own travel expenses and the bloated salaries of their friends.

Seems all a bit clever, but what do we lowly peons know about the struggles of the elite, their taxes and their “charitable donations” from one pocket to the other

1a) Who knew Hillary Clinton is a bit of a philanthropist?

To pressure her GOP rival Donald Trump into releasing his tax returns, the Democrat nominee for president has just released hers. Among the highlights: Hillary and Bill earned $10,745,378 last year, and wrote off $1,042,000 in charitable contributions.

But what’s most interesting is which charities benefited from the Clinton’s “charity.”

A $42,000 contribution was made to Desert Classic Charities. And the remaining million? That went from one pocket into another, as Hillary and her husband donated it to their very own Clinton Foundation.

The Clinton Foundation gives about as much to legitimate charities as Hillary Clinton. The Foundation spends a mere 10 percent of its revenue on charitable grants, while an equal 10 percent is spent on travel, 33 percent on salaries/benefits, and 47 percent on all other expenses (rent, supplies, IT). By contrast, charities like the American Red Cross and Doctors Without Borders spend 92 and 90 percent, respectively, of the revenue they raise on the charitable causes for which they exist.

It should come as little surprise then that after the FBI finished investigating Hillary Clinton, they began investigating her Foundation. The Daily Caller reported yesterday that “Multiple FBI investigations are underway involving potential corruption charges against the Clinton Foundation, according to a former senior law enforcement official.”

How will it turn out? If their previous investigative work is any predictor, we’ll learn that the Clinton Foundation broke the law repeatedly, but there’s nothing they can (or will) do about it.++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++2)Brian Mast, wounded veteran running for Congress in Florida, and Ryan Zinke, Navy SEAL running in Montana, are leaders America needs in Washington D.C. They will Defend Freedom, Security and the Constitution. They need your support to fight back against attacks by the left! 


Brian Mast lost both his legs while protecting American soldiers from IEDs in Afghanistan. He is running for Congress in Florida's 18th district, a tossup seat once held by conservative hero Col. Allen West. Mast has vowed to continue his public service in Congress with the same leadership he showed in the military.

He will uphold conservative values, fight big government and will always stand up for our men and women in uniform.

Mast has the courage to speak out against Obama and Hillary's reckless policies against the Constitution, against veterans, the military and law enforcement. He will not back down in the face of political attacks.

Ryan Zinke is a 23 year veteran of the Navy SEALS and a new leader in Congress who needs support to win re-election in Montana. Zinke spoke at the RNC a few weeks ago and made a stirring speech in support of veterans who have been treated horribly under the Obama administration.

He told Obama and Clinton it's time "Veterans are put in front of the line, rather than dying while waiting in line."

Ryan Zinke knows politics is a tough game, but nothing compared to what our heroes in uniform deal with every day. It is time we have real leaders who will actually work for veterans rather than just talk about them. 

For too long our country has been led by men like Obama and women like Hillary Clinton who use our soldiers and veterans as pawns in order to win votes and further their political careers.

We know men like Brian Mast and Ryan Zinke will not play games with our veterans or military and will always step up when they are attacked by politicians. If we truly want new leadership and change in Washington D.C. it is time we elect real leaders and not politicians who will say and do anything to get elected. 

Just last week President Obama warned of even more danger to the homeland from ISIS terrorists who are already in America. Obama lied to Americans about his deal with Iran and the ransom payment paid for hostages held by Iran.

The President has become an apologist and a key fundraiser for Iran, the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism. He and Clinton continue to lie about the Islamic nature of ISIS and terrorism all over the West.

Brian Mast and Ryan Zinke will speak the truth and hold those in power accountable. 


Trump’s Self-Reckoning

The GOP nominee and his supporters face a moment of truth.

Donald Trump lashed out at the media on Sunday after more stories describing dysfunction inside his presidential campaign. “If the disgusting and corrupt media covered me honestly and didn’t put false meaning into the words I say, I would be beating Hillary by 20%,” Mr. Trump averred on Twitter.

Mr. Trump is right that most of the media want him to lose, but then that was also true of George W. Bush, George H.W. Bush and Ronald Reagan. It’s true of every Republican presidential nominee. The difference is that Mr. Trump has made it so easy for the media and his opponents.

The latest stories comport with what we also hear from sources close to the Trump campaign. Mr. Trump’s advisers and his family want the candidate to deliver a consistent message making the case for change. They’d like him to be disciplined. They want him to focus on growing the economy and raising incomes and fighting terrorism.

They think he should make the election a referendum on Hillary Clinton, not on himself. And they’d like him to spend a little time each day—a half hour even—studying the issues he’ll need to understand if he becomes President.

Is that so hard? Apparently so. Mr. Trump prefers to watch the cable shows rather than read a briefing paper. He thinks the same shoot-from-the-lip style that won over a plurality of GOP primary voters can persuade other Republicans and independents who worry if he has the temperament to be Commander in Chief.

He also thinks the crowds at his campaign rallies are a substitute for the lack of a field organization and digital turnout strategy. And he thinks that Twitter and social media can make up for being outspent $100 million to zero in battleground states.

By now it should be obvious that none of this is working. It’s obvious to many of his advisers, who are the sources for the news stories about dysfunction. They may be covering for themselves, but this is what happens in failing campaigns. The difference is that the recriminations typically start in October, not mid-August.
These stories are appearing now because the polls show that Mr. Trump is on the path to losing a winnable race. He is now losing in every key battleground state, some like New Hampshire by double digits. The Midwest industrial states he claimed he would put into play—Wisconsin, Pennsylvania—have turned sharply toward Mrs. Clinton.

More ominously, states won by John McCain and Mitt Romney are much closer than they should be. If Mr. Trump is fighting to hold Georgia, Arizona and even Utah by September, a landslide defeat becomes all too possible.

The tragedy is that this is happening in a year when Republicans should win. The political scientist Alan Abramowitz has spent years developing his “time for a change” forecasting model. The model looks at the rate of GDP growth in the second quarter of an election year (1.2% this year), the incumbent President’s approval rating, and the electorate’s desire for change after one party has held the White House for eight years.
No model is perfect, but Mr. Abramowitz’s has predicted the winner of the major-party popular vote in every presidential election since 1988. His model predicts that Mr. Trump should win a narrow victory with 51.4%. A mainstream GOP candidate who runs a reasonably competent campaign would have about a 66% chance of victory.

Mr. Trump has alienated his party and he isn’t running a competent campaign. Mrs. Clinton is the second most unpopular presidential nominee in history—after Mr. Trump. But rather than reassure voters and try to repair his image, the New Yorker has spent the last three weeks giving his critics more ammunition.

Even with more than 80 days left, Mr. Trump’s window for a turnaround is closing. The “Trump pivot” always seemed implausible given his lifelong instincts and habits, but Mr. Trump promised Republicans. “At some point I’ll be so presidential that you people will be so bored, and I’ll come back as a presidential person, and instead of 10,000 people I’ll have about 150 people and they’ll say, boy, he really looks presidential,” he said in April.
Those who sold Mr. Trump to GOP voters as the man who could defeat Hillary Clinton now face a moment of truth. Chris ChristieNewt GingrichRudy Giuliani, Paul Manafort and the talk-radio right told Republicans their man could rise to the occasion.

If they can’t get Mr. Trump to change his act by Labor Day, the GOP will have no choice but to write off the nominee as hopeless and focus on salvaging the Senate and House and other down-ballot races. As for Mr. Trump, he needs to stop blaming everyone else and decide if he wants to behave like someone who wants to be President—or turn the nomination over to Mike Pence.
3) New York Times Olympics Story, Though Incomplete, Highlights Israel's Difficulties

By  Richard Friedman, BJF Executive Director 

Sometimes all it takes to better understand what Israel and Jews are up against is reading the news. 

There was an important story in the headlines Friday afternoon on the refusal of an Egyptian Olympian to shake hands with an Israeli Olympian after the Egyptian lost a judo match at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics. It's worth putting the incident under the microscope to study its implications.

The New York Times, which often is biased in its reporting about Israel mainly because it fails to provide full and accurate context for breaking new stories as well as feature stories, did do a story on the Judo incident, noting how unusual it was that the Egyptian would not shake the Israeli's hand. It noted that the Egyptian was then jeered by the crowd and the story added, "To decline a handshake is extraordinarily unusual and a serious breech of judo etiquette."

The Times quoted the American coach, Jimmy Pedro, as saying, "That is extremely rare in judo....It is especially disrespectful considering it was a clean throw and a fair match. It was completely dishonorable and totally unsportsmanlike on the part of the Egyptian."

Unfortunately, though, the Times story, once again, was incomplete.  It noted that instances reflecting Arab countries' rejection of Israelis and Jews are not all that uncommon at the Olympics, using as examples events during these current Olympics involving Lebanese and Saudi Arabian athletes. What the Times fails to point out is that neither Lebanon nor Saudi Arabia have diplomatic relations with Israel while Egypt does. This is an important omission. The fact that the two countries have diplomatic relations makes the snub even worse. 

Moreover, to help construct its narrative, the Times story also suggests that these incidents occurred as a protest against Israel's alleged oppression of the Palestinians, never pointing out the extreme lengths Israel has gone to make overtures to the Palestinian leadership to resolve the conflict.

More than 35 years ago, Israel made enormous, one-sided sacrifices to achieve peace with Egypt, giving up vast amounts of territory that it had captured in the 1967 War.  One of the reasons Israel did this was to achieve normalcy with Egypt and open the door to positive and mutually beneficial relations between the Egyptian and Israeli people. 

Thus, the fact that the Egyptian judo Olympian who refused to shake hands with his Israeli counterpart was from a country that has a peace treaty with Israel is especially discouraging.

As I said at the beginning of this Update article, sometimes all it takes to understand what Israel and the Jewish people are up against is reading the news.
4)  Obama’s Race War Arrives: Whites Hunted on Streets of Milwaukee, Beaten Bloody During Riots 

Obama and Democrats have been feeding this bear for years ever since Obama came into office.

They stoked the fire of racial hatred in Ferguson.

And rioters burned down the business district.

As a reward, Obama invited the protest leaders to the White House – several times.

Last night in Milwaukee black rioters hunted down whites like dogs.
So this is what “Hope and Change” was all about?

At least four businesses were torched to the ground.

Rioters targeted whites last night in Milwaukee.

You can’t stoke racial hatred and envy for years and not expect something like this to happen.
Infowars reported:

The clip shows angry rioters chanting “black power!” before asking “is they white?” as cars slowly drive past.

“Yeah they white!” states someone else, prompting the mob to run towards the vehicle.

“Yeah they white, get their ass!” screams another.

“Hey they beatin’ up every white person!” exclaims another rioter.

“He white – beat his head – bitch!” he adds.

The footage appears to show the mob attacking cars and trying to drag out the drivers.

The footage then cuts to an upper floor window before the person shooting the video states, “I think they 
just beat some white bitch ass for no reason – they bust open the window.”
Imagine if mobs of rioting whites attacked black people. National outrage. DOJ investigation. In #Milwaukee, nothing
