The media's attack on Ben Carson is disgusting

Politico and other news outlets reported a flat out lie about GOP Presidential candidate Ben Carson.  They did this because he is a black conservative and leading in the polls.  They want to take him down.  Such behavior is disgusting and it's no wonder people distrust the mainstream media.

Some sample questions for the upcoming Democrat debate

Moderator:   ‘Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Let's start the first question with you Mrs. Clinton:    Leaving aside the fact that you’re under FBI investigation, currently………’

"When you left the White House after your husbands last term as president, why did you steal $200,000.00 worth of furniture, china, and artwork that you were forced to return?

and Mrs. Clinton, when you were Secretary of State, why did you solicit contributions from foreign governments for the Clinton foundation, after you promised President Obama you would not?

Mrs. Clinton, why do you and your husband  claim to contribute millions of dollars to charity for a tax write off when it goes to your family foundation that gives out less than 15% of the funds you collect and you use the balance to support yourself tax free?

 Mrs. Clinton, why are you unable to account for 6 billion dollars of State department  funds that seem to have disappeared while you were Secretary of State?

Mrs. Clinton why did you say you were broke when you left the White House, but you purchased a 2 million home, built an addition for the secret service, and charged the tax payers of the Untied States rent in an amount to  the entire mortgage?

Mrs. Clinton why did you lie to the American people about the terrorist attack in Benghazi but managed to tell the truth to your daughter the same night it happened?

Mrs Clinton why did you lose your law license?

Why did your husband lose his?  Mrs Clinton, what Really happened to Ron Brown when he was about to testify against you and your husband? Mrs. Clinton what really happened to Vince Foster ?

You have 2 minutes to respond Mrs. Clinton.

More often than not, a government solution is not the best solution

Iowa Democrats are screaming to implement more government programs, add more expenses to the budget and increase taxes.  There's never any talk about how efficient (or not) these government programs are or of private alternatives.  Government isn't the only way to fix things.

Raising the wages of private businesses is none of county government's business

Look at the guidelines for the Johnson County Board of Supervisors, there's nothing listed there about having the authority to falsely inflate the wages of private businesses.  Their mission is to provide oversight on county government business, they've exceeded their authority.

Liberal Des Moines and Iowa City papers are propaganda sheets for Hillary Clinton

Lowering standards, ignoring the craven actions of someone like Hillary Rodham Clinton is, at the least embarrassing, even for the most loony and angry lefties.

But, that hasn’t slowed the left-wing hacks at the DEM Moines Register and the Iowa City Press-Corruption.  They’re still the propaganda sheets for Hillary, whose scandals and lies, continue to burgeon.   Remember, she is under FBI investigation, as we speak.

Although, ‘there was nothing new’ at the Benghazi hearings, (according to the secular lefties), even a few Democrats admitted that Rodham stood over the caskets of the fallen Ambassador as well as 3 other brave Americans and told the Bold-faced lie about the ‘video’ that was her choice narrative of that day.   Why?   Why did she choose to lie to the American people in such a disgusting manner?  All to keep her political life alive and that of her boss, whose election hung in the balance on September 14th, 2012.   Pretty despicable stuff.

Oh, how pathetic it must be to claim you are a Democrat and that’s the best you got.   So pathetic and vile.
