When did it become hateful to insist on living by your own values?

To The Daily Sun,

Loretta Lynch was supposed to have more integrity than Eric Holder, the previous Department of Justice ringleader. Of course that would not take much, but saying that we may never know the motivation of Omar Mateen stretches credulity, does it not.

Yes I know, the DOJ, at the likely behest of President Obama, redacted out all Islamist references from the 9-1-1 calls he made during his horrific slaughter at the Pulse club. The outrage was so intense that they had to do a 180 and show the transcript intact. But she is still saying it, for goodness sake.

Palestinian-loving socialist Bernie Sanders also asserts that we may never know. Steve Earle wants to know why the left continues to give cover for radical Islam and so do I. This is a perfect example of why the left's good intentions get people killed, again and again.

So good is the mainstream media in promoting leftist ideals and ignoring the truth, that conservative/independent family and friends of mine were not talking about yet one more radical Islamist terrorist attack inside this country. Their comment was, "I don't see why people need to have assault rifles?"

The Orlando slaughter is not about gun control, for goodness sake. Well, except for the fact that the club was a gun-free zone, or should I say, a free-fire zone. Terrorists are inside the gates and the left wants to make it more difficult to obtain assault weapons.

I'm never sure what constitutes an assault weapon and I will bet most on the left don't have a clue either. In any event, that will do nothing to stop these Islamist terrorists who are streaming in through our open borders and "diversity" culture. With a President Clinton in charge, these massacres will almost assuredly increase in the future.

Read about "America's Jihad Playground in Florida" by Michelle Malkin. It will shake you to your core to see all the names of those radicalized just in the one state of Florida. She names names and lots of them.

Ken Gorrell had a great column in this week's Weirs Times where he talked about "The Immigration Joke." He mentioned that we are in the fourth peak period of immigration, which is much different from the first three periods. Ken explained how the economic factors are much different now. He went on to say, "The other big differences are that there was no welfare state during the first three periods, and the security threats came mostly from foreign militaries, not a global network of terrorist organizations."

"In the lofty circles of those who see themselves as citizens of the world, it is considered unworthy, if not hateful, to insist on living according to your own Western values or to resist importing people who increase your chances of being killed," reported Thomas Sowell this week. He goes on to say, "some people demand American citizenship, as if it is an entitlement, while burning the American flag and waving the flag of Mexico. And the apostles of "diversity" and "multiculturalism" watch in silence. That includes the president of the United States."

Now even Great Britain has awakened to the two-headed monster that is threatening their country. Citizens have decided that the left, that is the European Union, by and large, is big, centralized government tethered to Brussels and is not in their best interests. Lou Dobbs believes that British citizens have decided that they still prefer the concept of sovereignty where citizens still feel connected to the powers that govern them. What a concept. I wonder where they got that idea from?

K.T. McFarland declares that we should hope for a 1980s renewal of Reagan/Thatcher proportions in order to get our economies booming again and together take on radical Islam once and for all. Yes indeed, Great Britain voted for freedom, economic prosperity and national security, all diminished under the European Union.

Perhaps President Donald Trump can reinvigorate our relationship with the British folks and restore power to the people, which is why he congratulated our neighbors for their courage. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama were against the move, even knowing that the EU was yet another example of an unaccountable power forcing rules and regulations on countries where its people have no say. Ah, but it's the way of the left where good intentions trump costly and often deadly results.

What would President Hillary Clinton do for our economy, freedom and national security? isn't it crystal clear?

Pat Buchanan- Has Trump found formula for beating Hillary?

Stripped of its excesses, Donald Trump's Wednesday speech contains all the ingredients of a campaign that can defeat Hillary Clinton this fall. Indeed, after the speech ended Clinton was suddenly defending the Clinton Foundation against the charge that it is a front for a racket for her family's enrichment.

The specific charges in Trump's indictment of Clinton: She is mendacious, corrupt, incompetent and a hypocrite. "Hillary Clinton ... is a world-class liar," said Trump. She faked a story about being under fire at a Bosnia airport, the kind of claim for which TV anchors get fired. She has lied repeatedly about her email server. She lied to the families of victims of the Benghazi massacre by implying the atrocity was a spontaneous reaction to an anti-Islamic video, not the premeditated act of Islamist terror she knew it to be.

Drop "world-class" and Trump's case is open and shut.

His second charge: "Hillary has perfected the politics of personal profit and theft" and "may be the most corrupt person ever to seek the presidency."


Bill Clinton got $750,000 for a speech from a telecom company facing State Department sanctions for providing technology to Iran. The Clintons got the cash; the telecom company got no sanctions. "Hillary Clinton's State Department approved the transfer of 20 percent of America's uranium holdings to Russia, while nine investors in the deal funneled $145 million to the Clinton Foundation." Trump added, "She ran the State Department like her own personal hedge fund — doing favors for oppressive regimes ... for cash." Together, she and Bill have raked in $153 million since 2001 in speaking fees from "lobbyists, CEOs and foreign governments."

These figures are almost beyond belief.

Sherman Adams had to resign as Ike's chief of staff for accepting a vicuna coat from Bernard Goldfine, who had problems with federal regulators.

When ex-President Reagan, after brain surgery, visited Japan to receive that nation's highest honor, The Grand Cordon of the Supreme Order of the Chrysanthemum, and got a $2 million fee from the media company that hosted his nine-day visit, our liberal editorial pages vomited out their revulsion and disgust.

Where are those media watchdogs today?

Rather than condemning the Clintons' greed, their conflicts of interest and their egregious exploitation of their offices, the media are covering for Hillary and digging for dirt on Trump.

To substantiate his charge of incompetence, Trump notes that Clinton as Senator voted for arguably the greatest strategic blunder in U.S. history, the invasion of Iraq.

She pushed the attack that ousted Col. Gadhafi and unleashed terrorists who took over much of Libya and murdered our ambassador.

She played a leading role in launching the insurrection against Bashar Assad that has left hundreds of thousands dead, uprooted half of Syria and sent millions of refugees to seek asylum in Europe.

Primary beneficiary: ISIS, with its capital in Raqqa.

And the hypocrisy charge?

Though Hillary and Bill Clinton profess to be the fighting champions of women's equality and gay rights, they have banked millions in speaking feels and tens of millions in contributions to the Clinton Foundation from Islamic regimes under whose rule women are treated as chattel and homosexuals are flogged, beheaded and stoned to death.

Why do major media let them get away with such hypocrisy? Because, ideologically, politically, socially, morally and culturally, the major media are with them.

While making the case for the indictment of Hillary Clinton, Trump also outlined an agenda with appeal not only to nationalists, populists and conservatives but working-class and minority Democrats.

If Trump is elected, an economic system "rigged" to enable big corporations to leave and take factories and jobs abroad, and bring their goods back free of charge to kill companies that stay in America, will end. "Globalism" will be replaced by "Americanism."

Trade and tax policies will be rewritten to provide incentives for companies to bring jobs and factories here. Was this not also Bernie Sanders' message? He stood against NAFTA in the 1990s when the Clintons colluded with Bush Republicans to impose it.

In his peroration, Trump spoke of what we Americans had done, how we had lost our way, but how we could, together, make her great again. His finale was surprisingly aspirational, hopeful, inclusive.

In the political year just ended, several unmistakable messages have been delivered. First, the record turnout for Trump and remarkable turnout for Ted Cruz represented a repudiation of Beltway Republicanism. Second, the amazing success of 74-year-old Socialist Bernie Sanders in keeping Clinton embattled until California, showed that the Democratic young have had enough of Clintonism.

A majority of the nation said loud and clear: We want change.

Hillary Clinton's vulnerability is that Americans distrust her; no one believes she represents change; and she has no agenda and no vision. Her campaign for president is all about her. As Trump noted, even her slogan is, "I'm with her."

Rough and raw as it was in parts, Donald Trump's speech on Wednesday contains the elements of a campaign that can win.
