About Me

In writing the "About Me" portion of this blog I thought about the purpose of the blog - namely, preventing the growth of Socialism & stopping the Death Of Democracy in the American Republic & returning her to the "liberty to abundance" stage of our history. One word descriptions of people's philosophies or purposes are quite often inadequate. I feel that I am "liberal" meaning that I am broad minded, independent, generous, hospitable, & magnanimous. Under these terms "liberal" is a perfectly good word that has been corrupted over the years to mean the person is a left-winger or as Mark Levin more accurately wrote in his book "Liberty & Tyranny" a "statist" - someone looking for government or state control of society. I am certainly not that & have dedicated the blog to fighting this. I believe that I find what I am when I consider whether or not I am a "conservative" & specifically when I ask what is it that I am trying to conserve? It is the libertarian principles that America was founded upon & originally followed. That is the Return To Excellence that this blog is named for & is all about.

Hillary Clinton's Three Strikes

This post highlights three strikes against Hillary Clinton becoming president – two strikes revealed in the past ten days & the other over the entire time she has been a national figure - summarized as follows: 1) her health is questionable, 2) her contempt for the American people is much greater than just half of Trump's supporters, & 3) her bad judgment & lack of accomplishments show no qualifications to lead the country.
Strike #1 – Questionable health
During the past several weeks I have received more than my fair share of messages alerting me to just about every unhealthy condition that Hillary Clinton could possibly have –e.g., spot on her tongue, growth in her ear, being steadied by Secret Service men while going up steps (this one was actually in SC in February – she slipped on steps), coughing, etc.
I responded privately to these messages with comments like: 1) I tend to not believe the story.  If it was true it would be all over the place with scores of reporters watching her every move everyday; 2) I don't put a lot of stock in that report.  She is watched like a hawk & most of what is said in the video is spinning some idiosyncrasies into the theory she is not fit; 3) You would have to hear it from a more reliable source than this video before I would believe it; & 4) I tend to not believe she is in terrible health.  If it was true it would be all over the place with scores of reporters watching her every move every day.
Well, when scores of reporters watched Hillary forced to leave the 9/11 memorial service early @ ground zero last Sunday, & then not under her own power, things changed about whether or not @ least some of the accounts postulated about her poor health were true – i.e., something was wrong with her.  Hillary was video taped being stood against a post like a sack of potatoes before she collapsed into a car that took her to her daughter's apartment not far away. 
Ninety minutes after collapsing Hillary emerged from Chelsea's apartment building & responded when asked how she felt – "I'm feeling great."  And then as a distraction to change the subject added "It's a beautiful day in New York." 
Here is a classical example of the lying that goes on with this woman – she is not fine or feeling fine.  She was supposedly diagnosed with pneumonia two days before - if you can believe that after the initial claims of being overheated & dehydrated on a pleasant day.  This incident not only questions Hillary's health but also provides an excellent example of why she is not trustworthy – there was no forthrightness in this health issue which follows the pattern of many other issues like her private e-mail server & handling of classified e-mails.
This health matter is further complicated because after Hillary left Chelsea's apartment building she called a young girl over for a photo op in which she hugged the girl.  Unusual behavior for someone who proclaimed to be affected by a disease-causing organism.
Peggy Noonan describes what she calls "the Clinton Scandal Ritual: lie, deny, revise, claim not to remember specifics, stall for time.  When it passes, call the story 'old news' full of questions that have already been answered.  'As I've repeatedly said before . . .'"  Some of these steps are still being played out in some Clinton scandals.
Click here for a version of this health incident that shows some metal pieces falling out of her right pant leg as Hillary is dragged off the curb to her car.  Neither the metal pieces or the whereabouts of her husband during this health incident have been properly explained – Bill supposedly was in Chappaqua waiting those three to four hours for Hillary to come home.  Believe that one too?
Although Hillary was obviously exhausted trying to keep up with the rigors of the presidential campaign we all know her medical history which includes fainting, falling - resulting in a concussion, suffering from double vision & dizziness, & being treated for a blood clot in her head.  Hillary still takes the blood thinner Coumadin to prevent blood clots.
Now medical records have been released.  The problem with medical records is that anyone can find a doctor who will testify to anything for a price.  So that leaves us to draw our own conclusions about such documents & our own observations.
Strike #2 – The contempt for the American people
On Friday September 9, speaking in NYC @ a fund raiser targeting LGBTs, headlined by homosexual icon Barbra Streisand, Hillary said "You know, to be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables.  Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic – you name it.  And unfortunately there are people like that.  And he has lifted them up."
First – there is no such word as "deplorables" – but we all know what & who she meant – namely us.
Click here to hear Tucker Carlson explain Hillary's contempt applies to virtually all Americans.  Mr. Carlson's video was made in June, over two months before Hillary's deplorable (that is a word) comment.  Like Mr. Carlson, look for yourself @ Hillary's body language & voice tone – whether she is telling people in Iowa, Florida, or California that she loves being with them you can see she does not mean it.  She is just going through the motions that are hateful to her & her contempt shows clearly to those of us who are even the least bit discerning.
Do we want a president who not so secretly harbors such feelings toward the people she hopes to lead? 
Strike #3 – Bad judgment & no qualifications
On Hillary's watch as Secretary of State there is a long list of negatives & not one positive that either Hillary or I can think of.  See below.
First & foremost there was the murder of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya on the night of September 11, 2012 – right in the middle of the home stretch of the 2012 presidential election campaign.  Hillary's defense of her inaction follows the steps of the above Clinton Scandal Ritual.
On March 6, 2009 Hillary presented Sergei Lavrov, Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs, with a red button with the English word "reset" & a Russian word she thought meant "reset."  Mr. Lavrov explained that she used the wrong word which meant "overcharge."  They pushed the button anyway & despite her best intentions the relationship with Russia is terrible.
In addition, Hillary was a leading proponent for American intervention in Libya under the UN, NATO, & Arab League bypassing the Congress, there was the unraveling of Iraq, constant clashes with Hamid Karzai in Afghanistan, her identifying Bashar Assad as a reformer, her inability to identify Islamic fascists (e.g., Orlando night club), & the poor judgment involving the Clinton Foundation – see first referenced post below for details.  Hillary supports the Iran nuclear deal & so does her VP selection.
During Hillary's ABC (Anti-American Broadcasting Company) interview with Diane Sawyer in 2014 Sawyer asked the seemingly softball question - What significant things did she accomplish during her four years as Secretary of State?  Forbes reported that Hillary didn't even try to answer the question but just changed the subject. 
The Washington Post (WP) reported – "When Sawyer asked Clinton to detail a marquee accomplishment or signature doctrine as secretary, she gave no answer — an exchange her Republican critics immediately highlighted."

The New York Times (NYT) had previously reported on Hillary's response to the same question – "It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women's forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered."


But click here to hear for yourself what Hillary listed as her accomplishments when she was Secretary of State.  Judge for yourself whether or not the above reports from the WP & NYT were accurate.


In summary, Hillary is a person driven way beyond the normal high energy person who succeeds in life.  Can you imagine Hillary being a sports fan following a baseball or basketball team?  Or someone with a hobby that provides meaningful use of time?  Or a person who could find fun & rejuvenation during a family vacation?  I can't.  Hillary can only find satisfaction, she thinks, by becoming the President of the United States & she will do or say anything to accomplish that goal as described above.

The Constitutional Case Against A Hillary Clinton Presidency


Hillary & George Washington University Students Have Much In Common Listing Her Accomplishments



  1. I think the metal comment is her shoe falling off looking like it came from the pant leg.

    1. Snopes gives about 20 things it could be. Looks like it fell from her pant leg to me though.

    2. Saw that view also - am pretty sure it is the shoe that has a metallic look. I could not see the other shoe what it was like.

  2. Very clear picture to us deplorables, and well stated but to Hillary followers, I'm sure, they would be rejected or excused in some way. Doug, you certainly are erudite.

  3. A lifetime of lies, scandals, and corruption are bound to negatively impact anyone's health. Do the right thing always and praying to your Creator every day are actions to keep one's mental,emotional, spiritual, and physical health as optimal as possible. I pity Hilary. I wonder how Jim Comey's health will progress as he enabled #CrookedHillary to proceed to the Presidency (and he knows better).

  4. Hit the nail right on the head as usual, superb article!! I assume by now you have heard BO's latest speech, using the race card to the limit, He is so out of control. A totally despicable, ignorant speech by an existing president to scream at the top of his lungs that his own legacy is being insulted, his own legacy being black. The man should be taking opioids in an attempt to calm himself down, but even that would not make him normal. He should be working on solving some of the country's budget problems instead of flying around and campaigning for his clone. His narcissistic opinion of himself will continue to push him on the path of total insanity.
