So the Air Vent has been radio silent for a long time. This blog was born during the first Obama election. My very first article was to point out the Russian reaction to missile defense in Poland had nothing to do with the actual missiles but rather the range of the insanely powerful radar system on their border. I was proven right over time.
I spent most of the blogs formative years on climate change. Climate Audit, WUWT and the Blackboard blogs were key drivers in my writings. I am extremely grateful for those blog owners direction and trust. This blog grew steadily for years until Climategate broke in 2009 with the Air Vent at ground zero. I was at about 5000 views per day and when that hit, it jumped to 35,000. Probably a normal day at WUWT but it dwarfed my hometown newspapers views at the time.
Today we are faced with a new election and I have to say, an easier choice has never been possible. We have one candidate who is inarticulate, a billionaire, no criminal history, no known acceptance of foreign money for political favors, no driving record problems, a non-drinker, didn’t want the Iraq war, and is not part of the political class. We have a second candidate who is known to take money from foreign countries for undisclosed reasons, who has dealt in classified information on unsecured computer systems, who is known to have attempted quid-pro-quo negotiations with the FBI to change classification of emails, who has attacked the women her husband has been involved with, while vigorously prosecuting her husband’s victims, who has disallowed help to Americans in life ENDING situations ” ‘what at this point does it matter’ “, who has taken millions in speech money from every world-class business, who has been protected by a compliant media, who was fed debate questions from CNN, who was given a pass from the FBI through obviously corrupt governmental agencies for uniquely poor handling of government documents-which was being done for the reasons of HIDING THE OPERATIONS of HER TAX FREE fake “non-profit” organization which happens to be set up in a manner in which the FOREIGN donors are not disclosed to the US tax payers.
See, the scam is easy, you set up a non-profit in Canada which at this point has not been required to disclose its donors to public, and then you set up a non-profit in the US who is required to show its donors – who are the Clinton group. What is she going to ‘give’ for the money. Why are these also rich people, willing to cough up millions? The answer is as obvious as the response, the Clinton foundation stated that they will stop taking foreign money AFTER she is elected. In other words, if you want access—– Pay now!
I can’t wright enough to cover her sins. My fingers will fall off. She is as guilty as Mann. She makes hide-the-decline look like girl scout cookie price inflation!!
None of these people are perfect, none of them are my choice. I liked Fiorina and Carson, yes I am an evil Conservative — because I do understand business and those of you who aren’t…. don’t. It’s not my fault that you haven’t handled US taxes. When you wonder where manufacturing went, I told you already so it is your fault for thinking you understand it better than me.
Other countries citizens are exempt from my critique because you cannot understand what we face. For the rest of you, if you were paying those taxes, you would likely understand the damage to our economy and likely change your mind.
Especially the readers of this blog.
Trump is inarticulate, which doesn’t work well for conservatives. Bush was quite articulate, despite his gaffes, in case you don’t recall. He was easy to tease for the left media but much sharper than he was ever given credit for – by the left. I doubt any of my normal readers could handle the rigors of the daily microphone as well as he. I couldn’t. I was one of the few conservatives in my circle who didn’t like the 2nd Iraq war. I din’t want it, but as is often the case, Nobody asked me. — I don’t feel sorry for them though. War is evil, but so is extreme Muslim. Yup, it is – sorry Brandon. But that lack of quality Trumpian prose is an easy to slam problem.
So today, we have an incredibly successful businessman, being played by the media as an apparent accidental idiot billionaire. He speaks of lower taxes, reduced regulation, proper energy production, WINNING DEALS with other countries, directing, controlling and TEACHING the world what it means to be free. It sounds like cheer-leading, but I’m not there. Fiorina is much better, but Trump will win the stupid deals because with the right leader, we hold the cards. Unfortunately, he is in competition with a blatantly corrupt politician being bought out at every possible corner. Even the RINO’s like her over the un-buyable Trump. Money from every country for her campaign. Even Iran. Even UAE. Muslim Brotherhood. Hell the communist party of the united states has endorsed the monster over their own.
Ask yourself why Iraq, Azerbaijan, Egypt, Libya, the United Arab Emirates or Libya would pay money to the Clinton campaign? Why would any foreign government be allowed whatsoever. What do they want in return. It USED to be a crime. Apparently it is all good when you are a liberal. Imagine the uproar if roles were reversed.
You will vote as you do no matter what I write. I know that. We don’t get the choice for what we actually want in a candidate, but I have to say that this is literally the easiest election decision I’ve ever made.
