because of 3 G's:guns, gays, God
If you missed the controversy, Trump said: "Russia, if you are listening, I hope you are able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing. I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by the press."
As he explained this morning, Trump was being sarcastic. But as we know, the left and their media allies will twist anything to smear conservatives.
Clinton campaign spokesman Jake Sullivan accused Trump of encouraging "a foreign power to conduct espionage against his political opponent," adding, "This has gone from being a matter of curiosity . . . to being a national security issue."
Why are they so upset? According to Hillary, there's nothing in those 30,000 deleted emails other than her thoughts on wedding plans and yoga routines.
Columnist Charles Krauthammer praised Trump's comment as "extremely clever," adding:
"These are the [emails] that were supposedly not work-related. . . So, if that's what really is in the 30,000 deleted emails, then there's no national security to be involved at all. So, the Clinton campaign ends up admitting that perhaps there really is work-related, if not classified stuff, on the emails which she deleted."
Some Democrats actually accused Donald Trump of. . . treason! Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) told MSNBC, "He is inviting an aggressive country that we are really worried about to invade us. This is ridiculous, and, frankly, it borders on treasonous."
Rep. Steve Israel (D-NY) said, "Well, that borders on treason. . . It's one thing to be unfit for command, but today he's proved he's dangerously unfit for command."
Really? Whether it was her bungled reset with Russia, her lying about Benghazi or the "extremely careless" manner in which she handled national security secrets, Hillary Clinton has repeatedly demonstrated that she is unfit for command.
And for all the outrage about the Russians now, remember when Barack Obama was caught on an open mic whispering to a Putin confidant, "Tell Vladimir I'll have a lot more flexibility after the election."
Do Democrats really want to have a discussion about treason?
Perhaps Mr. Sullivan could fill us in on his secret talks with the Ayatollah about legitimizing the Islamic Republic's nuclear program.
That terrible deal poses an existential threat to Israel, empowers the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism and undermines America's national security. And Obama, Clinton, Kaine and the Democrats forced it through by circumventing the Constitution's treaty provisions!
San Francisco Values - Every once in a while, in unguarded moments, a left-wing politician accidentally speaks the truth. Yesterday, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco) dropped her mask when she was asked why Hillary was struggling with working class voters, and white men in particular.
Trying to explain Hillary's gender gap, Pelosi blamed it on the "three G's," saying they voted Republican "because of guns, because of gays, and because of God. . . God being the woman's right to choose."
Perhaps that sounds familiar. During a 2008 fundraiser in San Francisco, Barack Obama was asked why he was struggling with voters in rural Pennsylvania. He said these voters were "bitter" and they "cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment."
In other words, he dismissed them as a bunch of intolerant bigots.
These remarks by Pelosi and Obama prove the exact opposite -- it's left-wing elites who are intolerant bigots.
They just can't comprehend why any American would think it is wrong to destroy unborn children or think marriage should be between a man and a woman. They just can't understand why anyone would believe the Second Amendment is an important right worth protecting.
It is incomprehensible to them that blue-collar workers would be upset that Obama and Hillary keep allowing millions of illegal immigrants into the country to compete for their jobs or force them to compete against the low wages of foreign workers.
The left claims to be for the little guy, but it must be talking about short professors or journalists because it is ignoring large numbers of Middle Americans.
But if Pelosi is admitting that most working class people believe in God, is she also admitting that the left is against God? Some of the delegates at the 2012 convention certainly seemed to be when they booed the inclusion of God in the party's platform. The Obama Administration has demonstrated its hostility to Christianity on multiple occasions.
Obama's Anger - Barack Obama delivered the keynote address at the Democratic National Convention last night. It was vintage Obama.
Once again, the man who talks so much about hope could not stop himself from demeaning his opponents and dividing the American people. Obama alternated his remarks from praising Hillary Clinton to ripping into Donald Trump.
At one point, he said this: " That's why anyone who threatens our values, whether fascists or communists or jihadists or homegrown demagogues, will always fail in the end."
The reference to "homegrown demagogues" was a clear jab at Trump. But, as he has done time and time again, Obama lumped his political opponents in with our enemies -- fascists, communists and jihadists.
I suppose I should be glad he actually uttered the word "jihadists," but he almost never displayed this kind of passion after jihadists killed Americans at Fort Hood, in San Bernardino or Orlando. Obama seems to reserve his vitriol not for ISIS, but for conservatives.
While mocking Trump, Obama also said: "Our power doesn't come from some self-declared savior promising that he alone can restore order. We don't look to be ruled."
For a moment I thought he was talking about himself! It certainly is a perfect description of the man who promised to slow the rising seas and who resorted to extra-constitutional actions whenever he wanted to bypass Congress to get his way.
Obama and left-wing elites seemingly get up in the morning not thinking about how they can make America safe from radical Islam, but how they can make America safe from conservatives. I suspect blue-collar workers are finally beginning to get that.
