A Hillary Clinton Presidency in One Simple Illustration

Donald Trump Meets With Those Other Guys

Donald Trump traveled to meet with Republican members of the House and Senate in Washington today. The House meeting went just great, according to Speaker Paul Ryan in describing his caucus’s reception of the presumptive nominee.  But not all the House members fell to their knees in praise of Trump, either. Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger described his remarks to the House meeting as “a lot of stream of consciousness,” somewhat similar to his patter at rallies but “less cheery.”

The Senate meeting involved less tongue and more teeth, according to “two Republican officials with direct knowledge of the exchanges” who gave the inside dope to the Washington Post: 
"Trump’s most tense exchange was with Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), who has been vocal in his concerns about the business mogul’s candidacy, especially his rhetoric and policies on immigration that the senator argues alienate many Latino voters and others in Arizona.
When Flake stood up and introduced himself, Trump told him, “You’ve been very critical of me.” 
“Yes, I’m the other senator from Arizona — the one who didn’t get captured — and I want to talk to you about statements like that,” Flake responded......"
Flake assured Trump that he wasn’t part of the “Never Trump” movement, but also said he wasn’t entirely ready to give his unqualified backing.
"Trump said at the meeting that he has yet to attack Flake hard but threatened to begin doing so. Flake stood up to Trump by urging him to stop attacking Mexicans. Trump predicted that Flake would lose his reelection, at which point Flake informed Trump that he was not on the ballot this year......
Mr. Trump also reportedly aired his grievances about Illinois Sen. Mark Kirk, who wasn’t even at the meeting, but Trump apparently felt he needed to let Republican senators know who’s gonna be the boss. Trump was very, very disappointed with Kirk for unendorsing him.
"Characterizing Kirk as a loser, Trump vowed that he would carry Illinois in the general election even though the state traditionally has been solidly Democratic in presidential contests."
Trump also was said to have claimed that he had inside intelligence about Hillary Clinton’s vetting process for Supreme Court vacancies and that he knew the names of two people the Democratic nominee is considering nominating, two Republican officials said. But Trump did not reveal those names. He did not specify whether his source was both of the Two Corinthians, or just one.

According to Roll Call, all in all it was a very productive meeting. As they emerged from the meeting, some GOP members said they were happy with what they heard from their party’s likely nominee. New York Rep. Peter T. King, who has been critical of Trump in the past, said the gathering was “Donald Trump at his best.”

A Rare Moment of Lucidity

"Rarely have 30 minutes of television so perfectly encapsulated the decline and fall of the rule of law and the extraordinary privileges enjoyed by America's liberal elite. After listing abuse after abuse -- and detailing lie after lie -- Comey declared that 'no reasonable prosecutor' would prosecute Hillary for her obvious and manifest crimes. It's good to be a Clinton. ...Rules and standards are for the little people. 
The FBI demolished every Clinton excuse and blew apart every Clinton lie, but soon she might well walk into rooms serenaded to the sweet sounds of 'Hail to the Chief.' To paraphrase the words of Benjamin Franklin, we've got a banana republic, if Hillary can keep it." - NRO

Snoop Dogg to Pimp for Hillary and the DNC

Famed Social Scientist and Entertainer Rapper, Calvin Broadus, Jr. 
In an attempt to get the ghetto rats interested in the election and back on the reservation for Hillary, Calvin Broadus , aka Snoop Dogg's latest act will be to bring together the Democratic Party.  The rapper is set to headline a "unity party" following the last night of the Democratic National Convention on July 28 in Philadelphia co-hosted by the super PACs Priorities USA, the Senate Majority PAC and the House Majority PAC, the groups announced Tuesday.
Mr. Dogg announced that he would be supporting Hillary Clinton less than a month after she declared her candidacy in May 2015. 
"You know I like to be politically correct, but sometimes I’m politically incorrect. Watch What Happens Live. But I’ll say that I would love to see bitches a woman in office because I feel like we’re at that stage in life to where we need a perspective other than the male’s train of thought. And just to have bitches a woman speaking from a global perspective as far as representing America, I’d love to see that. So I’ll be voting for da bitch Ms. Clinton." 
The groups also announced that the Grammy-winning group Los Lobos will perform.  And I would imagine a heavy presence of Police and Emergency Medical personal will also be in attendance.


So Much For The Rule of Law

The National Archives Display the Original Unused Draft of The Declaration of Independence

 Ben, John, Sam and Tom walk into a Tavern….....

NOTE: In 1770, the average per capita intake of distilled spirits (whiskey, rum, gin and brandy) was 40 gallons; by 1820, the per capita intake exceeded 50 .

After some thought, the framers of the original 
document put down the Ale mugs and all
agreed to a rewrite, and to be a little more diplomatically
thorough in telling King George to kiss their asses. 

Along with the U.S. Constitution, the rewritten Declaration 
has pretty much been ignored in modern times.
