Fake Intelligence
"Hillary, how are those falsified Intelligence memos coming along?"

The latest report from the New York Post has revealed that a “secretive Washington firm” which is apparently staunchly liberal and anti-Trump was behind the production and promotion of “Trump Dossier,” an unverified, so-called intelligence report on President Trump.

Fusion GPS, the firm behind the creation of the Trump dossier is now being investigated by the Senate Judiciary Committee. According to the New York Post’s report, the firm has so far refused to answer the Senate Judiciary Committee’s questions, and the committee has now threatened to subpoena the firm to get some answers.

According to Fusion GPS’ Wikipedia page, it is a “commercial research and strategic intelligence” organization. However, people have many reasons to believe that Fusion in fact operates as an opposition research firm. Sources have also told the Post that the firm is actually a supporter of Hillary Clinton.

“These guys had a vested personal and ideological interest in smearing Trump and boosting Hillary’s chances of winning the White House,” an unnamed source told the Post.

An excerpt from the Post’s report reads:

“Fusion GPS was on the payroll of an unidentified Democratic ally of Clinton when it hired a long-retired British spy to dig up dirt on Trump. In 2012, Democrats hired Fusion GPS to uncover dirt on GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. And in 2015, Democrat ally Planned Parenthood retained Fusion GPS to investigate pro-life activists protesting the abortion group.

More, federal records show a key co-founder and partner in the firm was a Hillary Clinton donor and supporter of her presidential campaign.”

It was just recently discovered that Fusion GPS’ partner and co-founder, Peter Fritsch, donated at least $1000 to Hillary Clinton’s foundation as well as campaign. All of this was happening as the firm readied the Trump dossier.

However, many attribute the creation of the Trump dossier to Fusion’s long history of supporting progressive agenda and protection of those interests. Fusion was hired by the Democrats, in the 2012 presidential elections to allegedly do some opposition research against Republican candidate Mitt Romney.

Later in 2015, Fusion was contracted by Planned Parenthood to distract and attack pro-life advocates following the discovery of several videos which showed Planned Parenthood’s leadership talking about illegally selling fetal tissues that had been aborted.

The Post also reported that the Senate committee is looking into how much the FBI used the allegedly faulty dossier to support their investigation into the Trump campaign.

Wise Choice
Man, I wish I would have been there - I'll be sure to be at his 2020 Inauguration!

In 1789, Thomas Jefferson wrote that, “Wherever the people are well informed they can be trusted with their own government.”

Abused by the media nearly as much as President Trump himself, Trump’s supporters have withstood constant attacks on their character, patriotism, intelligence, and more. The message from the media elite is clear, “If you don’t think and vote the exact way we demand, you are not informed.” However, what does informed mean here in this context? And does informed mean the same as Thomas Jefferson meant it in 1789?

The  difference between Jefferson’s use of the word informed and the media’s is the difference between fact and opinion. Regardless of how popular certain political opinions are in Hollywood,  knowledge of how our democratic republic works to deliver self-government is the most important foundation of being civically informed. Certainly, there are degrees to which political ideas can be right or wrong, but these are fiercely debated, and very rarely concrete or clear.

For example, while the medial elite can (and do) argue that socialism is working for Venezuela, or that tax-and-spend policies are working for Zimbabwe, knowledge of the specific structure of our U.S. government is unambiguous and clear. Voters that know how government works are informed in the most important and foundational way that citizens must be. For example – a fact: On November 8th, Americans didn’t just vote for President, they also voted to elect a Representative – their elected official in the House of Representatives in Washington, DC. This is done every two years.

Survey Findings

A recent poll by Haven Insights shows that Trump voters have a distinct and consistent edge in civic knowledge over their Hillary supporting and 3rd party supporting counterparts. In stark contrast to the media narrative, Trump supporters are not only more informed than the general public, but also more than their political rivals.

  • Trump voters were more likely to know the name of their U.S. Representative than Hillary supporters (45% to 38%).
  • While 66% of the public know that their U.S. Representative is up for election 2 years, slightly more (68%) of Trump voters knew this simple fact. However, as embarrassing as it is, Hillary supporters performed the worst in this simple question (65%)!
  • A shocking 23% of the public voted for their U.S. representative without even knowing their Representative’s name. However, Trump voters – educated and civically responsible –were the most likely to walk into the voting booth informed and knowing the name of their elected representatives. Hillary supporters performed the worst.
  • Embarrassingly, nearly a third of liberals (30%) went to the voting booth having no clue who their U.S. Representative was – while only 21% of conservatives had a similar struggle in the voting booth.

Trump voters consistently had the edge over both the general population, and their political opponents in basic civic knowledge – who their Representative was, what party they belonged to, and if they were even on the ballot.

The Trump Edge

It isn’t enough to just go out and go through the motions of voting – voters have to have a baseline understanding of who and what exactly they are voting for. Trump supporters systematically outperformed everyone in knowledge of their Representative.

The real-world result of this knowledge edge was that Trump supporters and conservatives succeeded in specifically delivering their support to conservatives and Republicans in key narrow races across the nation. One example is in Maine, where Rep. Bruce Poliquin, soundly beat his opponent – a well funded disciple of Nancy Pelosi named Emily Cain.

As Tea Party Leader, Matt Kibbe, famously declared, “Government goes to those who show up.” Trump supporters simply know more about their government than any other slice of the electorate. This allowed them to make their opinions heard, even over and above the scorn and abuse heaped upon them by the media.

Tim Kaine

Tim Kaine is running with Hillary towards the White House, but that doesn’t change the fact that he said this about Bill…

The former governor of Virginia and vice presidential candidate for Hillary Clinton said that Bill Clinton should have resigned over the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch recorded Tim’s statement in a 2002 article, but what has changed his mind?

Tim once thought that cheating politicians should resign, but now he has joined them.

Reports still come in that Bill is as promiscuous as ever, and crooked Hillary is known for a different kind of cheating.

Now, “America’s Number One Dad” is changing his tune and supporting the Clintons.

Tim Kaine has avoided scandals in his time in politics and he his is a good father and husband.

Tim is a respectable guy, but he doesn’t add enough credibility to the Clinton campaign to bring them back into the light.

What do you think about Tim Kaine?

Hillary Clinton claims to be the biggest advocate for women’s rights and probably thinks that she is a sure shot to be the first female President of the United States. Getting down to facts, however, Hillary Clinton is infinitely more an enemy to women than a champion. Her scandal- ridden past and present leaves something to be desired.

How can any woman look to her and be proud that she claims to represent all women? Will young girls really learn history and not feel ashamed that the first female President of the United States was a callous, negligent, greedy, egomaniac?

Here are just a few of many reasons why Hillary Clinton is a terrible choice for women in 2016.
