“Democrats legislate. Republicans investigate.”
– Lyndon B. Johnson –
Hello, everyone. Those words from former Democratic President Lyndon B. Johnson ring more true than ever these days. It’s the start of a new week, and today begins the 2016 Democratic Party National Convention in the city of brotherly love called Philadelphia. Barring some very unforeseen development, the nomination for President of our first woman by a major political party is almost a certainty. Yes, Hillary Clinton and her handpicked running mate, former VA. governor Tim Kaine, should receive the Democratic nomination for President and Vice President, respectively. It is this blogger’s hope that they will go on to defeat the Trump-Pence ticket in this November’s general election. While I would have preferred a more progressive pair, I will accept, campaign, and vote for these Democratic nominees, as I believe voting for the alternative, fearmongering Republican candidates would be not only hideous, but catastrophic as well.
It is no secret that Hillary Clinton is rabidly hated by most of the Tea Party-infested, reactionary Republicans. They and their new standard bearer, the bombastic bully Donald Trump, will do all that they can to further smear and tarnish her name. Their hatred is unfounded and beyond all rationality. They demonize her at the slightest provocation and go way outside of the bounds of common decency in their constant attempts to heap piles and piles of abuse on her.Though an exhaustive 11 hour long congressional hearing found her innocent of wrongdoing for the horrible deaths at Benghazi, she is still found to be at fault, and, in the blind and vicious eyes of many of these hateful partisans, is believed to be criminally liable – no matter what. That is why we heard Trump opportunistically call her “crooked Hillary” so often during the primaries, and other equally deluded extremist reactionaries yelling out “lock her up!” numerous times during the recently concluded Republican convention. Their elected Republican counterparts have wasted not only time, but millions of taxpayer dollars on repeated congressional hearings aimed at discrediting her in any way. They have failed miserably in these attempts, and have proven the accuracy of LBJ’s statement.
In today’s offering, podcaster extraordinaire BURR DEMING examines a number of the ridiculous trumped-up “scandals” which have arisen over the years around Hillary Clinton, dating back even as far as her days as First Lady. He shows just how ludicrous these repeated and failed Republican attempts have been.
Burr says, “If Hillary Clinton is innocent of wrongdoing, you have to wonder why there is so much scandal. Well, gather round.”
