Politics – Hillary Clinton claims to be the people’s choice and called Senator Robert Byrd, the former Ku Klux Klan Exalted Cyclops, her “mentor” and accepted the 2009 Margaret Sanger Award, named for someone who promoted racial eugenics as a tool to kill off lower races.

Politics – It is against the law for charities to act in the interests of private businesses or individuals, yet the Clinton Foundation secured lucrative deals for people with family ties.

Politics - Bill Clinton has cynically promised to stop accepting Clinton Foundation bribes once Hillary is elected, but opening up a fire sale last chance to “legally” buy influence!

Politics – Left wing agent provocateurs have been unleashed against Donald Trump at his campaign events to intimidate, frighten, and physically attack people attempting to exercise their right to free speech.

Media – Mainstream media polls are the main, centralized, not-too-secret sauce that lets the media and academic institutions cheer-lead their candidates onto undeserved victory.

Media - The MSM Rule of Inverse Electoral Correlation is “The closer the presidential race gets, the louder the MSM declares (wishes) that it’s over.

Media – Donald Trump has harnessed social media to spread his agenda and policies then instead of responding to old media attacks, he tweets another thought-provoking response.

Crime - “Multiple murders by an atheist is neither hate crime nor terrorism, but a rarely committed murder by a Christian must be both.”

Economy – The economy never recovered from the December 2007 recession and has been propped up ever since by financial tricks, so a recession contraction may be long overdue.

Economy – The Obama administration has undermined the economy: doubling the national debt, deferring any action on the unsustainable bankrupt entitlement programs, deferring any action on the pension unfunded liabilities, and hiding the impact with zero interest rate.

Economy – Britain’s Brexit was predicted to be disastrous but never occurred because predictions were never about economics but instead about European sovereignty.

Elections – Eighty percent of Americans, white and nonwhite across party lines, support photo ID laws for voter verification to ensure election integrity.

Healthcare – ObamaCare was unpopular when proposed, underachieved as implemented and is still rejected by most Americans because it is not a good deal for them personally.

Healthcare – Adult stem cells are being used in several thousand FDA-approved clinical trials, are treating tens of thousands of patients each year, and over 1.5 million to date.

Environment - It’s tragic that gullible Americans who have desire to be parents avoid having kids because of a quasi-religious belief in apocalyptic climate change and overpopulation.
