1st Debate Analysis...

Hallerin Hilton Hill, I did my homework yesterday...I watched the entire debate, took notes, knelt and prayed when over, here is my synopsis. I have no kids, so I only failed on that expectation of yours.

First off...I graded the participants...I gave Lester Holt a "B". I thought he was quite fair, rarely let a candidate filibuster a certain point, although he allowed 15-30 extra seconds for both on certain points. He was inaccurate on incomes rising over the past 8 years (that's only happening for the investors and hedge-fund managers that Hillary hates) and not the middle-class citizen. He also asked 6 follow-up questions of Trump, 0 of Clinton.

I gave Donald a B+ based on his positions and his presentation. Taking more money from the corporations and successful businesspersons is *NOT* the way to inspire them to hire more people. Hillary's explanation of "trickledown economics" fails on it's face...the budget deal and welfare reform negotiated by Newt Gingrich and signed into Law by Bill Clinton were what kept the Reagan recovery alive...the surplus that Democrats claim as their success alone. External trade deals are also a large negative on our economy...making it cheaper to do business elsewhere does NOT help us!

I also gave Donald Trump a B+...for not attacking Hillary stronger on Benghazi and the E-mail server...2 segments of the debate focused entirely on those 2 aspects of cybersecurity! He gets a high score for his focus on the economy...who can dispute that a billionaire businessman is best to run the largest economy in the world? He also pointed out Sidney Blumenthal's influence on Hillary's decisions as SecState even though Barack Hussein Obama refused to accept him in the State Department.

Hillary Clinton gets a "D" on my scorecard...the only reason Hillary did not get an "F" was becaue she lasted the entire 90 minutes without collapsing or launching into a coughing fit. She went with the old CLASS WARFARE argument that hard workers must pay more taxes than slackers...her despite of the success of Reagan's "Trickledown Economics" during the 80's...Bill Clinton's greatest success was not screwing it up THEN...he waited until 8 years later when the Community Reinvestment Act caused the FannieMae/FreddieMac housing crash which he blamed on evil bankers and George W Bush...who was the victim of the legislation signed into law by Clinton.
As well as the "enhanced" crack laws where crack cocaine crimes are charged stronger than powdered cocaine...I personally don't approve of either, but the market determines
the demand...targeted against the lower-income community because the Prison-Industrial complex needs more participants to survive.

Donald Trump was right to ask "Is it Barack Obama's Fault?" Hillary merely deflected from the obvious answer...

Hmmm..."Surprise Meeting"?

The “unscripted and unscheduled” meeting at Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix between former President Bill Clinton and sitting Attorney General Loretta Lynch…First thought? MY BIG OL HAIRY BUTT!!!

Nothing political happens by coincidence. Especially a meeting between a former President whose wife is under FBI investigation by a Dudley Do-Right FBI Chief James Comey under the umbrella of the DOJ. Especially a meeting in a private jet on the tarmac that neither party to the meeting had rented, but just happened to have the APU running and the AC on (hey, it was 110 degrees after all).

If it weren’t for a local news crew who just HAPPENED to be at the airport, even though nothing special requiring network coverage was happening, we’d know NOTHING of the meeting. Loretta Lynch’s visit was scheduled, as she had a meeting with the Phoenix Chief Of Police regarding the DOJ’s “guidance” (read Federal takeover) of local Police Departments.

Here’s how the scenario reverse-engineers itself in my conspiratorial mind…which is derived from intelligence guided by experience.

(Scenario #1) The FBI (not necessarily Director Comey), leaks to the DOJ that there is no way he cannot recommend indictment of Secretary Clinton for the E-mail server fiasco, lest his troops revolt. The DOJ acknowledges the presumptive recommendation for indictment and schedules a visit to the Phoenix PD, and notifies the local news media of the scheduled meeting. The DOJ also notifies the Clinton campaign of the scheduled visit, who notifies Bill Clinton, who subsequently schedules a “golf outing” to Phoenix for the weekend.
A soon-to-be 70-year old man with heart problems playing a round of golf in 100+ degree temps is suspicious to begin with…but I can live with that assumption…hell I love golf too!
So, AG Lynch’s plane lands, and Bill’s is scheduled for takeoff…he delays it, and enters the passenger compartment of a 3rd jet (privately owned, tail number as yet unrevealed). AG Lynch leaves her government jet and enters the 3rd-party jet as well. A local news crew, who just “happened” to be covering nothing at the airport captures the “unscheduled” meeting on camera.
A 30-minute conversation ensues, no microphones of course, since the 3rd party jet is privately owned…according to AG Lynch, the conversation was cordial and revolved around the Clinton grandchildren (as she has had no kids of her own), their mutual travel schedules, and the extremely hot, but dry, temperature native to Phoenix.
Gee, nothing to see here…the wife of the former President who is seeking to be the NEXT President meets with the Attorney General heading the investigation in the wannabe-next President.

Scenario #2 – Bill Clinton arranged for this meeting to casually “remind” AG Lynch who appointed her to the Federal bench in the first place on June 2, 1999…”Hey, I put you on the National Stage, I can take you out…forget the E-mail thingy, nothing to see there”. Quite believable, because Slick Willie has been a low-level thug his entire career. But that hypothesis fails in the end, because Democrats NEVER, EVER turn on their own…they circle the wagons, offering protection via deflection and excuses (remember the “vast right-wing conspiracy” during the bimbo eruption?

Scenario #1 is much more likely, due to the news crew just “happening” to be at the airport to capture the “unscheduled” meeting. They were tipped off for one reason, and one reason only…to give AG Lynch the ultimate “out” from having to indict…self-recusal due to conflict of interest.

If the Republican leadership demands AG Lynch, recuse herself...that's proof that the "fix" is in....wait for it.
