The California state election watchdogs are looking into allegations that money was funneled from oil companies through the state’s Democratic coffers and into Governor Jerry Brown’s pockets, as well as to the campaign coffers of other prominent California politicians. Contributions from Chevron, Pacific Gas & Electric Co. and Occidental Petroleum Corp. appear to have been given to the state’s Democratic Party around the same time the party gave Brown’s campaign donations of similar amounts. A few weeks after receiving large campaign donations, Brown came out against a new oil tax that would have benefited the state with billions of dollars in tax revenues.
The whole damned party must be corrupt. Don’t you wonder why the Feds aren’t snooping around over this?
TODAY’S QUERIES & ANSWERS:
Q. Why is the media covering up the fact that the Burlington, Washington mall shooter was a Muslim? (Denver ~ Renton, WA)
A. Because it was on the eve of the debates and Obama and his goons didn’t want the fact to become part of the debate dialogue. And once again, if you sweep it under the prayer rug, it doesn’t exist.
Q. I’m really concerned about voter fraud, particularly with Obama bringing in all of these illegal aliens. Should I worry? (Lucifer ~ Nampa, ID)
A. Absolutely. Take Virginia, for instance; so far, they’ve found 550 non-citizens registered to vote and they’re still counting. Remember how close the Bush-Gore election was? They’ve also found people who have been dead for years have been voting in Colorado. For some reason, all of these illegal votes seem to be cast by Democrats.
Q. Do you believe in subsidies for American industries? (Myron ~ Palmdale, CA)
A. In some cases, yes. I’m all for the farming subsidies and for renewable energy subsidies. We need food and we need cheap, non-fossil energy. I do not believe in oil subsidies; oil companies are making obnoxious profits, just as are pharmaceutical companies. .
“Subsidies and mandates are just two of the privileges that government can bestow on politically connected friends. Others include grants, loans, tax credits, favorable regulations, bailouts, loan guarantees, targeted tax breaks and no-bid contracts.” ~ Charles Koch

There are growing calls for F.B.I. Director James Comey to resign amidst revelations that he not only let Hillary Clinton off the hook when she should have been prosecuted, but he also granted immunity to every single person in the Clinton email scandal who might be compelled to testify in the matter.
The stakes are much higher than you might imagine. Suppose Mills, Abedin, Pagliano or Platte River executives were to testify that they knew what Hillary was doing was illegal, but they did it because someone in the White House told them to? Suppose they were able to confirm that the whole scheme was set up to enable Clinton to have secret conversations with various people who were seeking to gain influence over or obtain favors from Hillary in return for contributions to the Clinton Foundation? Suppose one of them were to testify that money was being siphoned from the Foundation to offshore accounts in which “someone” in the White House held an interest? It is possible, in fact I think probable, that such a scenario occurred, but we may never know because of Comey’s actions. I believe that beyond a reasonable doubt, Comey is guilty of dereliction of duty to the extent of being an intimate part of an ugly conspiracy, and a traitor to his country.
TODAY’S QUERIES & ANSWERS:
Q. Do you feel that Obama is betraying America by giving up control of the Internet? (Sue ~ La Canada, CA)
A. Absolutely. We know that America is as free as it gets when it comes to free speech, which means that any other country or organization is going to clamp down to some extent on what we can post or say on the Internet. Obama tried during his term to censor political speech on the Internet and he failed. By giving up control, he’s opening the door to such censorship and we will not be able to do anything about it.
Q. I’m getting a whole lot of advertisements for porn on my emails lately. I’m afraid to click on the “unsubscribe” link for fear of being attacked by malware or ransomware. What should I do? (Paul ~ Salt Lake City, UT)
A. Report it to the FCC. You should also deactivate that email account and use another one. You are correct in being cautious about clicking on any link on any email coming from anybody you do not know, and you should be advised there are many, many emails being sent by the bad guys which look like the real things from real businesses and which contain all kinds of computer problems just waiting to attack your system. Be extremely careful, and by all means… avoid those Russian and Asian girls.
Q. Why has Ted Cruz come out at this late point to say he’ll vote for Trump? (Charlotte ~ Knoxville, TN)
A. Because he has finally come to understand that by his own actions, his political career is now over and he’s making a desperate, last ditch effort to salvage it.

The day after Trey Gowdy announced in 2014 that he was going after Hillary’s emails, Paul Combetta, a computer specialist with Platte River Networks who worked with Clinton’s staff during her time as secretary of state, contacted Reddit to see if Email addresses could be stripped in bulk from saved Emails. It is also being reported that the F.B.I. knew of this information when it said Hillary had “no intent” and could not be charged.
In other words, the Clinton camp knew it was in trouble and was pulling out all of the stops in an effort to save Hillary’s skin. And Comey’s F.B.I. participated in the cover-up by letting her off the hook.
TODAY’S QUERIES & ANSWERS:
Q. If the Clinton Foundation is only giving out 6% of its enormous income as charitable donations, where is the other 94% going? (Lucinda ~ Fresno, CA)
A. Marketing, management expenses and travel, probably all of which got laundered and ended up in an offshore account in Bill's and Hillary’s names, with some of it also probably earmarked for Barack.
Q. I see that at least 40% of the jobs Hillary and her State Department got for people in government went to those who made big donations to the Clinton Foundation. What do you think about that? (Tuner ~ Red Bluff, CA)
A. That must just be a coincidence. I’m sure that Hillary has not been involved in “pay for play,” aren’t you? Wink, wink! LOL!
Q. Bryan Pagliano has been charged with contempt of Congress and the full House will vote on that within the next few days. Can he be sent to jail? (Owen ~ Provo, UT)
A. He could get a $1,000 fine and up to 12 months in the pokey. His next legal move would be to challenge Congressional authority in the matter, which would send it into the courts until well-after the inauguration. Or, Hussein in the White House could grant him Executive Privilege. So, we all know what Hillary did was illegal, but we can’t do anything about it.

Riots have broken out in Charlotte, North Carolina over the police shooting of Keith Scott.
From what we know as of post time [yesterday], there appears to be some justification for this shooting. I respect with and agree with their right to demonstrate in protest, but riots are never justified. That’s just pure gang mentality, a bunch of thugs looking for an excuse to rape, pillage and plunder. In Tulsa, there appears to me to be no justification at all for the shooting there and yet, there are no riots. In Chicago, where there is every reason in the world for the residents to be raising holy hell, shootings and murders continue on, unabated. Go figure.
TODAY’S QUERIES & ANSWERS:
Q. Do you agree with Gloria Steinem who says forced birth causes global warming? She’s advocating for abortion rights. (Lindsey ~ Bend, OR)
A. With the exception of race and probably incest, no one is forcing the female to get pregnant in the first place. I’m also willing to bet that she’s 100% against the death penalty. How do you equate with that? You refuse to punish a murderer, but don't mind butchering an innocent child?
Q. I see Anthony Weiner has been involved with a 15-year-old girl. He should be charged and imprisoned. (Hai ~ South San Francisco, CA)
A. I agree. He was only sexting her, but the logical next step would be bedding her. He’s got psychiatric problems and does need to be institutionalized. As we say out west, he’s not a real man; he's a real weeeener.
Q. I understand that Bill Clinton is taking umbrage at those who are exposing the Clinton Foundation for its “pay and play” deals while Hillary while she was Secretary of State. He’s claiming we are tarnishing the reputation of his “life’s work.”
“The limitations of riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it. Hence, rioting is not revolutionary, but reactionary because it invites defeat. It involves an emotional catharsis, but it must be followed by a sense of futility.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

In the wake of the apparently unjustified shooting and killing of a black father of four in Tulsa, Terence Crutcher, Hillary Clinton has said that if elected, she’ll start talking to the white folks and put a stop to this rampant racism.
The shooting appears to me, solely based on the video I’ve seen, to be totally unjustified. Yet, I’m not able to say that it was a racially motivated shooting. All we know is that the officer is white and the victim is black and, I understand, a model citizen. But, as of this writing, none of us know what was going through the cop’s mind when he pulled the trigger. We do understand that Crutcher was down on the ground after being hit with a taser. We’re told the officer thought Crutcher was going for a gun. But, we don’t know what the officer actually saw, we don’t know if he has a history of racial statements, we know nothing about his training or his background in law enforcement and we yet have no basis for saying that it was a racially motivated shooting. Once again, Hillary is letting her mouth overload her asshole. That having been said, if it turns it Hillary is correct, she damned-well better not be scolding me until she is held accountable for her own criminal actions.
TODAY’S QUERIES & ANSWERS:
Q. Any reaction to the news that George H.W. Bush is going to vote for Hillary? (Milo ~ Anchorage, AK)
A. All of the real progressives of both political parties are coming out and showing themselves for who they really are. As far as I am concerned, the Bush family is done… finished in American politics. And, I might add… good riddance.
Q. Why do you suppose Hillary abruptly canceled her scheduled appearance at a North Carolina fundraiser without explanation? (Nerina ~ Des Plaines, IL)
A. Maybe she needs the time to polish up her lies before the coming debate? Maybe her meds aren’t acting just right? Maybe she’s getting afraid to show her face in public? Who knows?
Q. The other day, Trump packed 8,000 into a Florida arena and Clinton barely managed to get 200 to show up at Temple University. How can she really be “neck and neck” with Trump in the polls? (Alexio ~ Burlingame, CA)
A. The polls are whatever the pollsters want them to turn out to be; it’s just a matter of who you ask and how you ask it. As for the light turnout, I think Americans are becoming less and less inclined to get into bed with a snake.
“I think it’s been hard for people to understand how Islam can be a good religion, and yet the Islamists are evil. Those of us who have had experience with Islam understand this, just as we understand the difference between snake handlers and people going to church on Sunday morning.” ~ P.J. O’Rourke
