The Enemy of My Enemy

The only way to keep Hitlery Roddamn Clinton out of the white house is to get the Bernie Sanders supporters to vote against the woman who they should despise more than anyone. Sanders campaigned against everything Clinton stands for. If his supporters genuinely believe his message it is imperative that they vote for Trump in November, as Trump is the only one left who can defeat Clinton, and by extension, defeat Wall Street banks and corrupt political insiders.

From Armageddon: How Trump Can Beat Hillary, by Dick Morris and Elieen McGann, pages 10-13:

But we need to battle with our left hook, too, to enlist our friends who supported Bernie Sanders in a common struggle to hold Wall Street accountable, end crony capitalism and corporate welfare, revise and junk one-sided trade deals that throw workers out of their jobs, and limit intrusive government surveillance of honest, good people. Most of the Sanders vote shares more than just ideology in common. They detest Hillary. These voters distrust her and see her as an essentially dishonest and as an opportunistic liar who will say anything to get elected and then do as she pleases. And Donald Trump will repeatedly reiterate the reasons for the rampant distrust of Hillary that she cannot conceivably overcome.

In an April 6, 2016, McClatchy/Marist survey, one-quarter of the respondents said they would never vote for Hillary in November. That's a lot of potential voters to join our cause. Throughout the campaign, Donald Trump offered a critique of the multiple trade agreements that Hillary has supported that fits perfectly into Sanders's criticism of income inequality. It is these deals, the Left and the Right know, that are driving down the middle class. We can unite with the Left in explaining how trade agreements that benefit the business establishments of both parties simultaneously impoverish American workers.

We also need to appeal to workers to split with their party dogma in favor of amnesty for illegal immigrants. In the elite Manhattan living rooms, the wealthy and those who Peggy Noonan calls the "protected" can talk about how we are a nation of immigrants, but the blue-collar mechanic who struggles with stagnant wages knows that it is competition from illegal immigrants who are willing to work for almost nothing that binds him to a third-world level of compensation.

Those establishment liberals who dwell in the "bicoastal" global economy may rail against the old "trickle down" theory, but the insurgents of the Left and the Right grasp that quantitative easing (QE), flooding Wall Street banks with cash, is the ultimate in trickle-down economics. The Trump and Sanders voters all realized that when the Federal Reserve showered Wall Street banks with $3.7 trillion in cash, they were simply paying off their friends and feathering the nests to which they would flock when their government service ends. There was never a real chance that the money would filter down to small businesses struggling to stay afloat.

The Left insurgents also know that there are only two candidates who rejected Wall Street money because they did not want to be beholden to them: Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump. Sanders will be gone, but his message about Hillary Clinton remains: Hillary is the darling of Wall Street, and those huge contributions come with a very long string attached. Donald Trump will continue that line of attack, pounding the message every day. And it will work. Because voters know that the candidate who has received the most direct campaign contributions from Wall Street folks is Hillary Clinton – in addition to more than $15 million they gave to her PACs. They get it that these donations were on top of the $3 million in Wall Street speaking fees in the first two years since she left office. And then there's Bill's $8 million from the big Wall Street banks. So there's lots of room for common ground. Let's find it and make it work to our advantage.

It's important to remember that Hillary Clinton is a deeply flawed candidate. And no one recognizes that like Donald Trump. Scandal follows her everywhere because she is corrupt and dishonest, and she believes, understandably, that she can get away with anything. After all, up until now, she has done just that. Like political acrobats, Hillary and Bill have successfully dodged scandal after scandal ever since they entered public life. Not because they were innocent, but because a variety of circumstances made it impossible to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that they were guilty. After all, sometimes guilt or innocence hangs on what the definition of "is" is.

But we forget that almost every single scandal in the Bill Clinton White House was caused by Hillary: Travelgate, Whitewater, Filegate, her amazing windfall in the commodities futures market, the Health Care Task Force's illegal secrecy, the household furniture and gifts taken from the White House to Chappaqua, Vince Foster's suicide, Webb Hubbell's disgrace – all Hillary scandals. Even many of the problems with Bill's women were seriously exacerbated by Hillary. When Paula Jones, who accused him of making sexual overtures, offered to settle her suit for no money, no apology, and no admission by Bill, Hillary wouldn't let him take the deal. Why not? Because Paula wanted Bill to say that he sent a trooper to invite her to his room. Even though the invitation could have been innocuous, Hillary was determined not to give credibility to an article in the right-wing Spectator Magazine that accused Bill of using troopers to arrange his illicit dates.

Bill, cowed, followed Hillary dictates, and the Jones suit went on and on. Ultimately, it led to his perjury, the revelation of the Lewinsky affair, his impeachment, his criminal misdemeanor conviction, his debarment, and his disgrace. It also cost the Clintons almost $1 million. But Hillary was spared the embarrassment of an implication that Bill had cheated on her. The Clinton White House pardon scandal was largely Bill's doing, but Hillary played a roll there too. The FALN, a Puerto Rican terrorist group that bombed the capital and Fraunces Tavern, killing four civilians, never even asked for a pardon of any sort and suddenly saw their sentences commuted.

Why? Because Hillary needed the Latino support for her New York senate race. Likewise, a Hasidic group successfully lobbied Hillary to get her husband to pardon key leaders in their community. He did – after she arranged a meeting with President Clinton for their supporters. And then, of course, her brothers were paid huge sums of money to lobby the president to pardon their jailed clients, including one of the biggest crack dealers in the country. Again, Bill bowed to Hillary's wishes. Just as once all roads led to Rome, so all scandals lead to Hillary. And after the White House years, the scandals continued. Hillary's and Bill's speaking fees, the Benghazi cover-up, and her use of a private e-mail server all riveted our attention.

For decades, people have wondered about the Clinton marriage. Dick believes that it was a real romance that gradually became a marriage of convenience by two business partners. But who knew that it would become a RICO, a virtual racketeering organization? Bill ran around like a bag man collecting a staggering $221,139,516 in speaking and consulting fees that he deposited into his joint bank account with Hillary, while his wife, the secretary of state, reciprocated by doing favors for foreign governments. Do the Russians want to own 20% of the US uranium supply? Does the dictator of Kazakhstan want international approval? Does Dubai want to attract foreign investment? No problem. Just invite Bill to give a speech and, presto, you have Hillary's State Department working 24/7 for you – and even organizing an event at the State Department for the top 100 CEOs in America to meet the business community in the U.A.E.
