7 Things The Foreign Donor Scandal Reveals About Hillary


Updated August 22, 2016

The Clintons have announced they will no longer accept foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation if Hillary becomes president. If they have done nothing wrong, why stop doing it? We don't know because Hillary won't take any questions about this and the main stream media is not pressing the subject.

Updated July 19, 2016

Now that Hillary Clinton has dodged an indictment it is important to remember the whole reason she was controlling access to her emails. Without a doubt her email server contained questionable emails from contributors to the Clinton Foundation that would show evidence of pay to play. Deleting evidence was crucial to keeping even worse information from getting out. If you haven't read it yet, put Clinton Cash on your reading list.  Here is what you will learn.

Peter Schweizer's sobering book Clinton Cash is a devastating revelation of Hillary Clinton's lack of qualifications for the presidency. With 55 pages of small print endnotes, Schweizer's book passes all credibility tests (The New York Times fact checked the correctness of his finding).

Disturbingly, much of the contents of this book are only public knowledge due to leaked information that was meant to stay secret. Read this book and you will receive confirmation of the following:
  1. The Clintons Shamelessly Transact Business with Criminals. In chapter after chapter Schweizer names dozens of criminals who have donated money to the Clintons.
  2. The Clintons Associate with Human Rights Abusers. Despots from countries like Kazakhstan, Ethiopia and the Democratic Republic of Congo get government favors from the United States thanks to the intervention of Bill and Hillary. In return the Clinton Foundation rakes in big money and Bill gets six figure payments for making speeches.
  3. The Clintons Will Abandon Core Believes for a Big Payoff. The Clinton's were against nuclear proliferation until they were for it. What changed? Agents acting on behalf of Indian interests donated big dollars to the Clinton Foundation and speaking fees to Bill. Hillary made sure the State Department approved India's increased access to nuclear resources. In Columbia, Hillary got approval for a Clinton Foundation donor to run a lumber operation in an area which had previously banned such activities. So much for being environmentally friendly. Also in Columbia, Hillary flipped from opposing to supporting a free trade agreement when the Clintons got millions from Columbian donors.
  4. The Clintons Will Siphon Away Money Needed in Third World Countries. Both the Clinton Foundation and its donors have benefited from money pulled out of poor countries to line the pockets of the Clintons and their rich friends. Aren't there enough rich people to solicit for donations? Why the need to extract millions from countries lacking the funds to make needed structural improvements?
  5. Secretary Hillary Would Approve Questionable Deals And Bill Would Rack In Related Big Speaking Fees. A Canadian firm needed State Department approval to keep the Keystone XL pipeline project moving forward. Hillary made the approval. Bill earned more than a million dollars from this firm for a series of speeches. In another example, Hillary approved a Swedish firm to sell banned products to Iran. The firm then paid Bill $750,000 for a speech.
  6. The Rules Don't Apply to The Clinton. The Obama administration required that Hillary report any potential conflicts of interest from Clinton Foundation donation and her State Department actions. On multiple occasions the Clintons decided to not report conflicts.
  7. The Clintons Are Incompetent Managers. The Clintons took the lead role in managing the Haitian relief efforts after the 2010 earthquake. Hillary arranged for the relief funds to run through the State Department. Then instead of hiring experienced emergency relief experts, she funneled the money through the Clinton Foundation who assigned contracts to Clinton cronies (including Hillary's brother) with no construction competence. Instead of building much needed housing for an economical price, the relief money lined the pockets of Clinton donors.
The saddest part about the revelations in this book is that they did not end the career of Hillary Clinton. She has destroyed evidence that would provide more information about these questionable actions. The mainstream media refuses to demand she explain her unethical behavior. Incredibly she is the front runner to become the next president.

What a travesty.

Kennedy Borks America


In the aftermath of the Supreme Court's monumental decision to legalize gay marriage, many are asking how a country that once overwhelmingly supported traditional marriage could come to this.

We can largely give the credit/blame to one man - Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy who was appointed to the Supreme Court by Ronald Reagan in 1987. Kennedy was not Reagan's first choice. Reagan first nominated Robert Bork, a brilliant conservative legal mind who scared the liberal Democrats then in control of the US Senate. Bork's nomination was defeated by a 58-42 votes. Six Republicans voted against him. Reagan then nominated Douglas Gingsburg, who in a less 'enlightened' age had to withdrawal after admitting to marijuana use as a young professor.

So Anthony Kennedy was Reagan's third choice. The fact that he was approved by a vote of 97-0 in the Senate should be a clue that liberals knew he was not going to judge like a conservative.

The number of important Supreme Court decisions where Kennedy was the decisive vote has changed America in a direction that would cause Reagan to turn in his grave.

  • In 1992 Kennedy provided the needed vote to reaffirm the right to abortion.
  • In 2003 Kennedy struck down Texas sodomy laws.
  • In 2013 Kennedy struck down the Defense of Marriage act.
  • In 2015 Kennedy now rules that same sex marriages must be allowed nationwide.
Had Robert Bork made it to the Supreme Court he would not have voted the same as Kennedy. (Bork died in 2012).

Bork has the dubious honor of having his named turned into a verb. To be 'borked' means to receive a judicial decision with no justification in the law. Kennedy has been criticized as a judicial activists who overlooks the constitutional based opinions of his conservative court colleagues.

In the current same sex marriage case, Kennedy borked America.

In the 1960's America used the legislative process to bring about the civil rights laws. Kennedy's ruling denies America the opportunity to take the same path to resolve the same sex marriage controversy by the voice of the people. Instead, Kennedy provided the vote needed to irrationally deny thousands of years of tradition and redefine marriage to the detriment of society.

Gay activists are not going to stop with this victory. Look for pro-gay lifestyle actions in public schools and the public beliefs of Christians regarding the sin of homosexuality treated as a hate crime.

Tubman on $20 - 10 Women to Leave off of the $10



UPDATED April 20, 2016

As I hoped, Harriet Tubman is going to be on the $20. Replacing a pro-slavery Democrat with a black Republican woman is a win-win.  Let's make it happen.

UPDATED September 17, 2015

The Republican presidential candidates were asked in the CNN debate who they would like to see on the $10 bill.

They were asked because the Treasury Department has announced that it will update the $10 bill with the picture of a woman in 2020 to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of women getting the vote. To be considered the woman needs to be dead, so favorites like Hillary Clinton, Kim Kardashian, and Caitlyn Jenner are not eligible.

Here are 10 women who should NOT be given this honor:
  1. Eleanor Roosevelt. This famous first lady is a heavy front runner, like Hillary currently is in her presidential bid. Hillary used to talk to Eleanor's spirit while Mrs. Clinton was first lady. If Hillary becomes president, Roosevelt will be a shoe in. However, Roosevelt should be disqualified for her actions that protected a Soviet mole in the Roosevelt administration from being discovered (See here for that story). 
  2. Susan B. Anthony. Already had a turn on the unpopular dollar coin. Stand aside and make room for someone else.
  3. Sacagawea. Already had a turn on another unpopular dollar coin. Go stand with Susan B.
  4. Ayn Rand. Seriously? Ayn Rand would roll over in her grave if she knew her picture was going to be printed on paper money. Now if it was a real gold coin, that would be a different story.
  5. Wilma Mankiller. This 1980's Cherokee Nations leader would be a better replacement for Indian fighter and slavery defender Andrew Jackson, but he is the only true Democrat with his face on U.S. currency so he gets protected by the left.
  6. Alice Paul. This prominent suffragette went on to co-author the original version of the Equal Rights Amendment - a non-started for conservatives.
  7. Margaret Sanger. This darling of the left and founder of Planned Parenthood was a racist and advocate of eugenics. This candidate's chance is aborted.
  8. Betty Friedan. Founder of modern feminism, Friedan's negative views of  traditional families does not make for a good choice.
  9. Sally Ride. Astronaut Sally Ride was outed as a lesbian after her death and all of a sudden has become a LGBT icon. To be recognized for something she wanted to remain private is not a good recommendation for this honor.
  10. Christine Jorgensen. Jorgensen was the 1950's Caitlyn Jenner. Since biologically, Jorgensen remained a man after his surgery, this choice would mean we still have no woman on U.S. currency.
Some conservatives are critical of plans to take Alexander Hamilton off of the $10 bill. I am not one of them. Hamilton was a womanizing big government federalist. I don't think he would join the modern Tea Party. He'd be more comfortable hanging around with the Wall Street establishment.

My vote is for Republican Civil War hero Harriet Tubman.

Fiddlin' - Dolezal Sings MJ's 'Black Not White'


In the current culture, men want to be women and whites want to be black and it is accepted as perfectly normal. Twenty years ago people thought something was wrong with Michael Jackson changing from black to white. Michael's not with us anymore, but his songs are and this song is once again topical, with a few changes to the lyrics.

Black Not White

sing to the tune Black or White by Michael Jackson


[Rachel Dolezal]
I took my country,
On a dubious claim.
Hey, is that black girl you?
Yes we're one and the same.

Now I believe in miracles,
And a miracle
Has happened, all right.

But, if
You're thinkin' about my pigment,
It don't matter if I’m,
Black not white.

They print my message,
In the ‘Washington Post'.
I had to tell them,
I’m a whitey who toasts.

And I told about ethnicity,
An' it's true,
I can be wrong,
And be right.

But, if,
You're thinkin' about my pigment,
It don't matter if I’m,
Black not white.

Don't depend.

I am tired of my Swedness.
I am tired of crackers.
I am tired of this whiteness.
Goin' where I’m going to blacker.
I ain't scared of your brother.
I ain't scared of the Man.
I ain't scare of nobody,
Girl, when this girl gets tan.

Projection,
For gangs, clubs and nations,
Cause deceit in human relations.
It's a race war on a global scale.
I'd rather be piceous and not pale.
See, it's all about races, black faces, faces.

Where your blood comes from,
Ain’t where your space is.
I've seen my skin once paler,
I'm now going to spend,
My life being a color.

Don't say you disapprove of me,
When you saw me,
Spray my skin with some dye.

But, if,
You're thinkin' about my pigment,
It don't matter if I’m,
Black not white.

I said if,
You're thinkin' about my pigment,
It don't matter if I’m,
Black not white.

I said if,
You're thinkin' about my pigment,
It don't matter if I’m,
Black not white.

No, no, alright,
Alright.
Yeah, yeah, yeah now,
Alright, alright.
Jump on, don't,
Yeah, yeah, yeah now,
Alright.

I’m black, not white.
It's tough for me to get by.
I’m black, not white.
I’m black, not white.
It's tough for me to get by.
I’m black, not white.

Fiddlin' - Beatles Song "Yesterday" Lampoons Scandalous Politician


Yesterday by the Beatles is 50 years old this week. It deserves a parody song in honor of this milestone anniversary. Former Speaker of the House Denny Hastert is in the news lately because he was caught making hush payments to cover up a high school student sex abuse scandal from when he was a high school wrestling coach.


Sing to the tune of Yesterday by the Beatles:

Hastert, D., all your troubles seemed so far away.
Now it looks as though they're here to stay.
Oh, I’m aggrieved by Hastert, D.

Suddenly, you’re not quite the man you act to be.
There's a shadow hanging over thee.
Oh, Hasert, D. you’re sodomly.

Now, you’ll have to go,
Don’t you know, you cannot stay.
You did something wrong,
It’s so long to Hastert, D.

Hastert, D., love was such a sleazy game you played.
Now you need a place to hide away.
Oh, I’m aggrieved by Hastert, D.

Now you’ll have to go,
Don't you know, you cannot stay.
You did something wrong,
It’s so long to Hastert, D.

Hastert, D., love was such a sleazy game you played.
Now you need a place to hide away.
Oh, I’m aggrieved by Hastert, D.


On a serious note, child abuse is a tragic action that should be condemned at all times and steps taken to make sure it happens less and less. Unfortunately, one of the communities that should be a leading voice in fighting child abuse is curiously silent. Even though same-sex child abuse is ten times higher than opposite sex child abuse as a proportion of the LGBT community, there is no high profile LGBT campaign to reduce this crime. Given that LGBT's are victims of child abuse at rates three to five times higher than the normal population, you would think they would make this an important issue like HIV. It hasn't happened, and in fact part of the diversity embraced by the LGBT community are groups that advocate intimate relations between youth and adults. Just another reason why LGBT values are bad for society.

Fiddlin' - I'm an Olympian and I'm Okay



The Olympian Song
sing to the tune of The Lumberjack Song by Monty Python.

[Jenner]
I'm a Olympian and I'm okay.
I sleep all night and I work all day.

[Chorus]
He's an Olympian and he's okay.
He sleeps all night and he works all day.

[Jenner]
I throw discus, and I long jump.
I toss out a javelin.
On Wednesdays I go running, the high hurdles race to win.

[Chorus]
He throws discus, and he long jumps
He’ll toss out a javelin.
On Wednesdays he goes running, the high hurdles race to win.

He's an Olympian and he's okay.
He sleeps all night and he works all day.

[Jenner]
I throw shot put, I leap and jump.
I like to paint my toes.
I put on women's clothing and strike a fetching pose.

[Chorus]
He throws shot put, he leaps and jumps.
He likes to paint his toes.
He puts on women's clothing and strikes a fetching pose.

He's an Olympian and he's okay.
He sleeps all night and he works all day.

[Jenner]
I throw shot put, I wear high heels,
Suspendies and a bra.
I wish I'd been a girlie, just like my step girl Kim.

[Chorus]
He throws shot put, he wears high heels?
Suspendies... and a bra?

... He's an Olympian and he's OK
He sleeps all night and he works all day.

[Chorus / Jenner]
... He's/I'm a Olympian and he's/I'm OK
He/I sleep all night and he/I work all day.

Join A Read Like Ben Carson Summer


Many people are excited that a man of great character like Ben Carson is running for president. People that know Doctor Carson can easily observe that we elected the wrong first black president.

Carson's American success story is all the more amazing when you learn that he was raised by an illiterate single mom in poverty. From such humble beginnings he became the first doctor able to separate twin babies joined at the head.  He also made news when he successfully removed half the brain of a young patient who was debilitated by epilepsy.

Carson credits the beginning of the road to his success with an plan his mother put into place while he was attending elementary school in Detroit. Carson noticed that he always did worse than any of the other students in his classes. He was the class dummy. One day his mom told her two boys that they were no longer going to watch TV all day after school. Apart from one or two shows per week, the TV was going to be turned off. Instead, the Carson boys were required to read two books per week and submit a written book report to their mother.

The reading plan worked. Ben Carson went from being the dumbest kid in school to one of the best. He was able to attend Yale University and become one of the most accomplished surgeons in the world.

This summer, for the second year, I have challenged my kids to read like Ben Carson.  They will each be reading two books a week and giving me book reports. They may not become world famous brain surgeons, but by September they will have completed a journey of adventure, growth, learning, and accomplishment.

I encourage all parents and grandparents to challenge their own children and grandchildren to read like Ben Carson this summer. The results should be amazing.


For any home schoolers out there you may be interested in a young adult novel I wrote with my wife. Home School Adventurers: The Lost Da Vincis tells the humorous adventure of four home school siblings who lose their parents in a science experiment gone wrong. They work together to get them back before anyone finds out they are missing. The book is also available on Nook and ITunes. Reader reviews are always welcome.

Fiddlin' - Hillary's Foreign Donor Song (Sorry Meghan Trainor!)


The nationwide bestseller Clinton Cash is raising concerns over the unusual foreign donations accepted by the Clinton Foundation. The pattern was (1) foreign entity wanted a favor, (2) foreign entity makes huge donation to Clinton Foundation, (3) Hillary's State Department grants favor to foreign entity, and (4) Bill Clinton makes big dollar speech paid by foreign entity.

Time to put this action to music. Take it away Hillary!

Dear Foreign Donor
Sing to the tune of Meghan Trainor's Dear Future Husband.

[Hillary]
Dear foreign donor,
Here's a few things,
You'll need to know if you wanna have,
Some special access to my life.

(Ahhhhh)
Money on the plate.
I deserve it, babe.
And don't forget the speeches paid to Bill, my dear hubby.
'Cause if you'll treat Bill right,
I'll let you in my sight.
Buy access to me.
Buy-buying what you need.

You got influence to ply,
And baby, so do I.
So don't be thinking I'll be home and baking apple pies.
I never learned to cook.
Why cook when you’re a crook?
Send money to me.
Send-send money to me. (hey)

You gotta know how to treat me like a lady.
Even when I'm acting crazy,
Tell me everything's alright.

(Ahhhhhh)
Dear foreign donor,
Here's a few things,
You'll need to know if you wanna have,
Some special access to my life.
Dear foreign donor,
If you wanna get that special lovin',
Your money's beautiful each and every night.

If it isn’t right,
Just apologize.
After all, what difference does it make, dear donor, right?
Even if I was wrong,
[Laugh] You know I'm never wrong.
Why disagree?
Forget Benghazi!

You gotta know how to treat me like a lady.
Even when I'm acting crazy,
Tell me everything's alright.

(Ahhhhhh)
Dear foreign donor,
Here's a few things,
You'll need to know if you wanna have,
Some special access to my life. (hey, baby)
Dear future donor,
Make time for me.
Don't leave me lonely,
And know you'll never see your money when it’s mine.

See Bill speaking, raking in all sorts of bread. (hey)
Write a check to him and you might get some -- kisses!
Don't have a dirty mind,
Bill’s just a classy guy.
Buy access to me.
Buy-buying what you need. (babe)

You gotta know how to treat me like a lady.
Even when I'm acting crazy,
Tell me everything's alright.

Dear foreign donor,
Here's a few things,
You'll need to know if you wanna have,
Some special access to my life.
Dear foreign donor,
If you wanna get that special lovin’,
Your money's beautiful each and every night.

(That's right!)

Oh-woah

Foreign donor, better love me right.
