This will conclude the series where I’m outlining where Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump stand on the issues affecting this nation. Taken from the website, diffen.com.

Trans-Pacific Partnership

Donald Trump: Trump has lambasted all trade deals, including the TPP, saying they weren’t negotiated well and the terms should have been made more favorable to the United States.

Hillary Clinton: Clinton was more measured in her public response to the TPP. When she was Secretary of State, Clinton and her staff worked to finalize and pass the TPP trade agreement.

The Death Penalty

Donald Trump: Supports the death penalty, and advocates mandatory death sentences for those who kill police officers.

Hillary Clinton: Clinton supports the death penalty, but believes it has a place in a very limited number of federal cases.

Syria and ISIS

Donald Trump: Would prefer not to have boots on the ground, and would rather eliminate ISIS main funding by destroying their oil wells, refineries, etc.

Hillary Clinton: Clinton supports a no-fly zone, as well as training Syrian rebels. She is for strong U.S. involvement in fighting ISIS, short of deploying boots on the ground.

Position on Iran

Donald Trump: Trump has said he would reject the Iran nuclear deal and renegotiate it.

Hillary Clinton: In favor of Iran agreement. As Secretary of State, laid the groundwork for sanctions on Iran and negotiations on the agreement.

Position on Afghanistan

Donald Trump: The Afghanistan War was necessary. Maintaining a presence there is necessary because of proximity to nuclear-armed Pakistan. Maintain troop strength to about 5,000 soldiers.

Hillary Clinton: Clinton has said she’d be open to maintaining some troops in Afghanistan as necessary.

Position on TARP

Donald Trump: Trump supported the Wall Street bailout. “Nobody really knows what impact it’s going to have. Maybe it works, and maybe it doesn’t. But certainly it is worth a shot.”

Hillary Clinton: Clinton supported the TARP bailout of financial institutions on Wall Street.

This concludes my three part series on where the Democrat and Republican candidates for President of the United States stand on various issues. I hope you will read and decide which candidate falls within your boundaries. And I hope you have boundaries.



Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump, began his acceptance speech stating that we’ll lead our country back to prosperity and peace and that we would be a country of law and order. He further indicated that the Republican convention occurred at a time of crisis for the nation with attacks on police, terrorism in our cities, violence in our streets, and chaos in our communities. Our way of life has been threatened. The above certainly indicates that our country is not a peaceful one.


In order to address the above issues, candidate Trump indicated that we needed a straightforward assessment of the state of our nation, and in doing this, we can’t afford to be smothered by political correctness.

Decades of progress made in lowering crime rates have now been reversed by this administration’s rollback of criminal enforcement. Last year homicides increased by 17% in America’s fifty largest cities, the largest increase in 25 years. In Washington D.C. killings have arisen by 50% and are up nearly 70% in Baltimore. In Obama’s hometown of Chicago, more than 2000 have been the victims of shootings this year alone, while more than 3,600 have been killed in the Chicago area since Obama became president.

The number of police officers killed in the line of duty has risen by almost 50%, compared to last year. Nearly 180,000 illegal immigrants with criminal records, ordered deported from this country are roaming free. The number of new illegal immigrant families who have crossed the border so far this year already exceeds the entire total from 2015.

Of course, presidential nomineeHillary Clinton mentioned nothing about the above in her speech except for a small blurb indicating that she wanted to reform our criminal justice system from end to end, and rebuild trust between law enforcement and the communities they serve. She wants to reform our criminal justice system, but the current system is the criminal justice system of soon to be ex-President Barak Obama. She’s pledged to continue the policies of Barak Obama and I would assume includes the criminal justice system, which is obviously corrupt, almost always excluding facts if a particular case involves a minority against someone white or a criminal against a law enforcement officer. That’s what liberals advocate. They don’t care about facts or evidence.

Other statistics quoted by Republican presidential nominee Trump include that nearly four in ten African American children are living in poverty while 58% of African American youth are not employed. Two million more Latinos are in poverty today than when Obama took office. Another 14 million Americans have left the workforce entirely. Household incomes are down more than $4000 since the year, 2000. Our manufacturing trade deficit has reached an all-time high. Obama has doubled our national debt to more than 19 million and we have nothing to show for it. Roads and bridges are falling apart. Airports are in third-world condition, and forty-three million Americans are on food stamps. To increase revenue to the federal government, Donald Trump plans to repeal Obamacare and replace it with something less costly and where the quality of healthcare will be higher. He also plans to lower taxes, not only on the middle class, but to cut the corporate tax rate so companies will have less of an incentive to take their operations out of the country.

Hillary states that she and those who are a part of her administration are going to build an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top. Isn’t that what Barak Obama was going to do, but his policies failed miserably in that regard? She also states that the economy is so much stronger than when Barak Obama first took office. Obama took office following the crash of 2008. Up until then the economy was doing well. Granted the price of gas had risen. And we all know that if the price of gas rises during a Republican administration, it’s the fault of the Republican president, but if the price of gas rises during a Democrat administration, the president doesn’t have anything to do with gas prices. While yes, the crash occurred under George W. Bush’s watch, the root cause was the social engineering done during the Clinton administration where banks were forced to make high risk loans, so that people who couldn’t afford houses, could now purchase houses. See Wing Nut Gal: Democrat Lies about George W. Bush, Part Three.

There is no economy that will work for everyone. Due to her history and her writings, she favors socialism over our current capitalistic economic system. Capitalism doesn’t work for everyone, but it works for most and produces overall prosperity. Socialism works for no one except for the extreme lower income segment and then produces conditions only slightly above the poverty level for all except the very rich. To achieve her economy which “works for everyone,” she’s going to tax corporations and the super-rich. First of all, define super-rich for us? I believe the way Obama defined it would have a couple, a firefighter and a school teacher in New York City, defined as super-rich. And of course, let’s increase taxes on those evil corporations, corporations who hire people, give people raises, and provide healthcare for those people. Let’s have more and more people losing their jobs so that we can have more and more people on food stamps. In other words, more and more people on the government dole.

Hillary states that Democrats are the party of the working people. NOT TRUE! http://wingnutgal.com/ideology/another-reason-the-democrat-party-is-anti-middle-class/.

Trump went on to indicate that internationally, our citizens have lived through one humiliation after another, such as our sailors being forced to their knees by the Iranian captors at gunpoint, just prior to the signing of Obama’s nuclear deal, which gave back to Iran, $150 billion and gave us nothing resulting in one of the worst deals ever made by the American government. Another humiliation occurred when Obama drew a red line in Syria and the whole world know it meant nothing. In Libya, our consulate was brought down in flames. Trump concluded, like most of us, the world is far less stable since Obama made the decision to put Hillary Clinton in charge of America’s foreign policy.

In 2009, before Hillary, ISIS was not on the map. Libya was cooperating. Egypt was peaceful, and Iraq was seeing a reduction in violence. Iran was being choked by sanctions, Syria was under control. After four years of Hillary Clinton, ISIS has spread across the region and the world. Libya is in ruins, Ambassador Chris Stevens and his staff were left helpless to die at the hands of savage killers. Egypt was turned over to the radical Muslim brotherhood, forcing the military to retake control. Iraq is in chaos. Iran is on the path to nuclear weapons. Syria is engulfed in a civil war. The refugee crisis now threatens the west. The legacy of Hillary Clinton is death, destruction, and weakness.

According to Democrat presidential nominee, Hillary, She’s proud that we have put a lid on Iran’s nuclear program. Ugh! How clueless can you be? She did mention ISIS and her strategy for defeating ISIS will be to strike their sanctuaries from the air, and support local forces taking them out on the ground. We will increase the quality of our intelligence so that we will detect and prevent attacks before they happen. We will disrupt their efforts online to reach and radicalize young people in our country.

No mention of Syria and the refugee crisis, of Libya, and of the four dead in Benghazi, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. Not even a mention of the Muslim brotherhood in Egypt and the chaos in Iraq. If she’s elected, it looks like we will have more of the same with Hillary that we had with Obama, the failure to utter the words, “Islamic Terrorism,” the continuous lecturing to the American people to not judge Islam by the actions of a few, and the failure to take the threat of ISIS and other Islamic terrorist groups seriously. Instead, will we continue to blame Islamic terrorist attacks that take place on gun violence and call for more gun control laws?

Candidate Trump indicates that he plans to put America first, not globalism. He wants to make our neighborhoods safe, secure our borders, and protect us from terrorism. He will also outline reform to add millions of new jobs and trillions in wealth than can be used to rebuild America. While he doesn’t say how he’s going to do this, I have ascertained that he will increase revenues by decreasing taxes, thus allowing increases in wealth and higher tax revenues to the federal government. When more people have jobs and are prospering, more revenue to the government results.

Whenever Islamic terrorists pull off an attack on American soil, she will lecture us not to judge Muslims on the actions of a few. Subsequently, she will pontificate about gun violence in America and the need for more gun control. I also surmise than conservatives and Christians will somehow be blamed, even if the evidence clearly points to Islamic terrorism.

Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump, stated that decades of record immigration have produced lower wages and higher unemployment rates for our citizens, especially for African-American and Latino workers. Thus, he is proposing an immigration system that works for the American people. He has indicated that he will build a wall on the Mexican border to stop illegal immigration and to stop the gangs, violence, and drugs from pouring into our communities. He has further indicated that we will stop, catch, and release on the border and will enforce rules for those who overstay their visas.

Hillary is proposing mass amnesty, mass immigration, and mass lawlessness. Her plan will overwhelm our schools and our hospitals.

Trump went on to indicate in his acceptance speech that he had made billions of dollars in business deals and now he wants to make the country rich again. America has lost nearly one-third of its manufacturing jobs since 1997, following the enactments of NAFTA, signed into law by then President Bill Clinton, and one of the worst economic deals ever made by our country.

Donald also indicated that he wouldn’t let companies move to other countries, firing their employees along the way, without consequences. But, if there’s no incentive for them to stay here, why shouldn’t they move. If he will follow through on his promise to lower the corporate tax rate and make this country a more corporation friendly nation, the migration to foreign safe havens will decrease.

Hillary supported NAFTA and China’s entrance into the World Trade Organization, another mistake. She also supported the job killing trade deal with South Korea and the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

Donald indicated that he would not sign any trade agreement that hurts our workers or diminishes our freedom and independence.

While Hillary Clinton has proposed a massive tax increase, Donald Trump has proposed the largest tax reduction of any candidate who has declared for the presidential race this year. Middle America will get tax relief and taxes will be simplified for everyone. America is one of the highest taxed nations in the world.

Hillary’s simplistic solution is to tax the super-rich and the evil corporation. Guess she doesn’t care how many Americans lose their jobs, don’t get raises, or have their benefits either reduced or eliminated altogether.

Excessive regulation is one of the greatest job killers according to Donald Trump, costing our country as much as $2 trillion a year. Donald has indicated that he will lift the restrictions on the production energy.

Hillary wants to put coal miners and steel workers out of work, but Donald Trump has so indicated that won’t happen. She’s said this time and time again, even before accepting the Democrat party’s nomination for president. She said in her speech that the Democrat party is for working Americans. To this, I’ve always said BS and will continue to say BS!

Hillary spent much time during her acceptance speech trying to humanize herself, talking about her marriage to Bill, her role as a parent, and her role as a grandmother. She also discussed this nation’s founding fathers, as did Barak Obama in his speech to the Democrat convention delegates and attendees. What gives? I didn’t think we could talk about the founding fathers because they owned slaves. Furthermore, didn’t Obama once say that there were so many things that he would like to impose upon this country and its citizens were it not for the constitution?

She also spent time ripping Donald Trump to shreds. She accused him of calling women pigs. The only time I heard him refer to women as pigs was when he was talking about Rosie O’Donnell. Well, if the shoe fits?

I’ve said this over and over again, “Donald Trump was not my first choice for Republican nominee for president of the United States.” The truth is, however, that we can’t afford another four years or eight years of Barak Obama policies. The current president has almost destroyed the United States of America. With four to eight years of Hillary Clinton, this once great nation will be history. We can’t let that happen. We must take back our country, take it back from those who seek to destroy it. We must create prosperity. This will not happen if we continue to punish those who have made this country great, the private sector job creators and the folks who fill those jobs and work their fingers to the bone in order to succeed and provide good lives for themselves and their families.

While mentioning this country’s founding fathers in their convention speeches, Barak Obama and Hillary Clinton have failed to grasp the principles on which this country was founded, less government intrusion into our lives, and the freedom to succeed according to our goals and desires.

Donald Trump and his campaign has taken a lot of heat from liberals because, according to them, he gave a negative speech, and indicated that he wanted to make this country great again. Yes, he did point to areas where this president has made things worse, and that’s in just about every area of the federal government. Whereas, Hillary’s speech was all rosy with puppies and unicorns. Plus, she listed all the freebies she’s going to give out; such as free, single payer healthcare, college tuition, the guarantee of a good paying job for everyone. Socialist utopia? Isn’t that par for the course? The opposition party points out negatives and how he or she will make things better; whereas, the party in power points out the positives of the administration.

If we elect Hillary Clinton to the presidency, we can kiss the freedoms we once enjoyed as Americans good-bye. With Donald Trump, I see a vision of making American great again. Yes, the United States of America is still the greatest country on earth, but our way of life has taken tremendous hits under the administration of Barak Obama. This must change. Voting for Hillary Clinton or one of the minor candidates, or even staying at home on Election Day is a vote for the demise of the United States of America. Is this what you want?

On August 24, liberal publication, Mother Jones, ran an article outlining things that the current president has done after January 2015 when he officially became a lame duck president. Of course, liberals think these things are great. The following is a discussion of the remainder of these items.

Got fast-track authority for the Trans-Pacific Partnership and seems poised to pass it: I wrote a series of articles on the Trans-Pacific Partnership. http://wingnutgal.com/while-we-were-arguing/. The TPP diminishes our sovereignty and gives the current president even more potentially dictatorial powers.

Signed a nuclear deal with Iran and appears on track to get it passed: We all know about the Iran nuclear deal and what a disaster it is. It guarantees that Iran will one day have nuclear weapons. The deal also ignores the nature of the Iranian Regime. According to nationalreview.com, Iran’s political strategy is not focused on respect. It instead focuses on the expansion of its forces throughout the Middle East. Of course, Iran will spend much of the extra cash it receives when sanctions are lifted on supporting Bashar al-Assad as he continues to gas, barrel-bomb, and starve hundreds of thousands of innocent men, women, and children. Furthermore, the language in the deal with regard to inspections is flawed. Iran fought hard to ensure that it can maximize the bureaucratic facing the inspectors from the IAEA, and the president has admitted such. Allowing Iran to be able to conduct inspections on itself has to be the dumbest thing I have ever heard in my life. Iran is likely, very likely to continue its covert weaponization research. When the IAEA requests an inspection, Iran will delay as long as possible, hiding its activities. When the inspection does take place, Russia and China will say that Iran is living up to its agreement and sanctions will not need to be put back in place. The deal is toxic and anyone who believes otherwise obviously blindly worships at the altar of this president.

Won yet another Supreme Court case keeping Obamacare intact: Just the fact that his bill that was passed in 2010 is still tied up in the courts, only indicates what I’ve said about it all along; that it is worst thing that has ever been wrought on the American people.

Issued new rules that increase the number of “managers” who qualify for overtime pay: First of all, this wasn’t for managers only. This was for lower-tiered professional employees who are not currently eligible for overtime. This will totally and completely wreck the American workplace as we know it and further expedite the transforming of the United States of American into a socialist totalitarian state. I wrote a series of articles on the evils of this order. http://wingnutgal.com/obamas-executive-order-to-extend-overtime-part-1/.

Presided over the birth of twin giant panda babies at the National Zoo in Washington, D.C.: Is this for real? Actually, I wish it was. Then maybe I could have something good to say about the president.

On Wednesday, the current president got enough voters to prevent an override of his veto of Congress’s vote of NO on the Iranian nuclear deal. Therefore, allowing the president to pursue this deal. We were told that this agreement would prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. Not we that not only is that not true, but it all but guarantees that Iran will have such weapons and will also have long range missiles capable of delivering those weapons to our shores.

While our country is falling apart at the seams, the current president finds that he has the time to rename a mountain in Alaska while continuing to push his deliberate lies about global warming/climate change or whatever the Democrats/liberals/progressives want to call it these days.

This president has done so much damage to the United States of America that I wonder, even if we can elect a republican president and maintain majorities in the House and Senate, will we ever be unable to undo the damage he has done?



The last couple of weeks have been good ones for the Democrats and the current President. In its rulings, the Supreme Court upheld Obamacare and same sex marriages. I have democrat/liberal friends and most are good people who sincerely think that Obamacare is a good thing and that allowing gays to marry will end oppression for them. How could anybody not want everyone to have access to affordable health care and how could good person not want equality for all?

With Obamacare, everyone I know who has to purchase their health insurance independently has seen a substantial increase in their monthly premiums. In addition, deductibles and co-pays have increased. In order to qualify for subsidies, a single individual must have approximately $12,000 in taxable income that is verifiable. However, if you estimate incorrectly, you could owe the feds at tax time.

For example, you begun the year doing odd jobs after being laid off from your high paying job. You are then able to get subsidies. Later in the year, you get a high paying job with health insurance as a benefit. You’re thus off Obamacare, but because your income for the year is much higher than you estimated earlier, you may owe the feds part or all of the subsidies you received earlier in the year.

There are so many strings attached to the subsidies that you wonder if it’s even worth trying to qualify for subsidies. Tax time next year is sure to be interesting.

Before Obamacare, 85% of Americans had health insurance and were reasonable satisfied with their health insurance. That leaves 15% who were uninsured for various reasons. If it was the desire of this administration that everyone have health insurance, why didn’t they leave the 85% along and concentrate only on the 15%? The answer: it was not the administration’s desire that everyone have health insurance, it was their desire to control one-sixth of the nation’s economy; and in controlling the health insurance industry, the government controls you.

With regard to the ruling on same sex marriages, the Supreme Court has ignored the rule of the people in 31 states and ordered that all states recognize marriages where the partners are of the same sex. With this, there has been talk of ministers being jailed and churches being fined for refusing to perform same sex marriages. Instead of seeking another bakery or photographer for services at the wedding, same sex couples are suing with intent to destroy the business and those folks who are associated with the business. Now, how Christian is that? Wait, I’m not supposed to invoke Christianity, am I? Wouldn’t it just be easier to find another photographer or caterer? But, what do I know, I’m just an unenlightened oaf. This college graduate/former software engineer is not able to grasp liberal thought.

What’s my point, you ask? The current administration doesn’t care about the Americans citizens having access to quality healthcare. If they did, we wouldn’t have the abomination that is Obamacare. Also, as much as I hate to be the bearer of bad news, the current administration doesn’t care about equal rights for Americans who adhere to an alternative lifestyle. This is nothing but a war on Christianity.

Then there’s the confederate flag controversy. I just read an article where CNN was so shocked that the majority of Americans, not just southern Americans feel that the confederate flag is a symbol of pride and not a symbol of racism. But that doesn’t stop the “tolerant left” from labeling all those who take pride in the confederate flag as racists. In other words, they refuse to accept differing points of view and that makes them bigots. What else is new, we already knew that.

What’s so sad, though, is that the Trans Pacific Partnership is being implemented behind our backs. The TPP will put an end to American sovereignty, make us subservient to other countries, some with totalitarian regimes, and take us several giant steps forward to one world government. When the flak over same sex marriage, Obamacare, and the confederate flag dissipate, we’re going to find that the current President has kept his campaign promise to fundamentally transform the United States of America.

Things are looking mighty grim. The Republicans we sent to Congress have not stood up to this administration. I don’t know what they’re thinking. Are they scared of getting blamed for a government shutdown? Are they afraid of the current President? Are they afraid of the liberal media?

Our Republican led Congress is doing nothing to stop the abominable acts of the current administration. And if they are not going to stop the destruction of the United States of America, who is? It may have to be “We, the People.” Am I willing to travel to Washington and demonstrate? I’m ready to go. I don’t want to do it alone. I’d be unsuccessful. Am I willing to stand outside the White House with a sign? Yes, I am. Am I willing to engage in unruly behavior? I’m not.

What do I want to do? I would be willing to travel with a group to Washington to meet with the likes of Joe Biden, Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell, Nancy Pelosi, John Boehner, and perhaps the current President and present them with facts and grievances. Would the above consider meeting with a group of concerned citizens? I doubt it.

There has to be a way, though, to take our country back. I sincerely believe that there will be some sort of uprising soon. In case you didn’t know, I’m a huge Alabama football fan. Most of the time my team wins and wins convincingly. But the few times that they have stumbled, they’ve always turned around and “made a run for it.” Alabama doesn’t go down easily. I think the good people of the United States of America will do the same. Things may not be bad enough yet that people are ready to fight, but I hope and pray that at a certain point, the strong will stand their ground and not let the United States of America go down in flames. How much further do we have to go and how much worse do things have to get before that happens?



I watched the video of the current president’s eulogy of Reverend Clementa Pickney, one of the nine killed in the Charleston, S.C. shooting. Liberals, as usual, were swooning like they do every time this president opens his mouth. Some conservatives were indicating that the speech was about race and gun violence. It was also indicated that the president tried to fake a southern accent and talk “black.” Remember he’s only half black.

The first eight or nine minutes of the eulogy was good. The president said some very nice things about Reverend Pickney and I’m sure they were all true. He did try to speak at times with a southern accent and that was a joke. People should be themselves and talk like they normally talk.

After those first eight or nine minutes, things went to hell in a hand basket. He began deliberating on gun violence and how we needed more gun control in the country. He also spent time talking about race relations in the country and how the confederate battle flag was being taken down from various southern state capitols.

He did speak about God’s grace and it sounded like he was trying to be a minister, which, of course, he’s not. One thing had changed, though. Until the eulogy, the current president seemed to be uncomfortable talking about God, the Bible, and Christianity. On the tenth anniversary of 9/11, he was reading scripture at ground zero and seemed very uncomfortable. It was like he had never read the Bible out loud in his life. Most of us who have been reading scripture out loud since we were children know how God’s word ebbs and flows. The president was having trouble, though.

He seemed comfortable in the pulpit and I don’t quite know what to think about that. Even though the first eight or nine minutes were good and the current president sounded like he cares about people, I have to believe that he was faking it. He doesn’t care about anyone but himself and while, I may take some flak for this, I don’t believe he cares about the shooting victims and their families. I believe he just wants to continue to push his radical agenda of eliminating the ownership of firearms for private citizens and doing as much damage as he can to the southern states because we didn’t vote for him.

I clicked off the video as he was beginning to sing “Amazing Grace” at the end of the eulogy. I just couldn’t take it.

While we’re still discussing the merits of the confederate flag with the liberals calling anyone who connects with it a racist, things are happening to further destroying the United States of America as we knew it seven years ago. The Trans Pacific Partnership is going to end American sovereignty. It bothers me that very few people are talking about it. It’s boring and complicated; not near as sexy as arguing about the confederate flag and why the Civil War was fought.

Americans, wake up! We’re losing our country. We’re losing our free speech. We’re losing our freedom to practice our religion. Christianity is under attack. It has been suggested that ministers should be jailed for refusing to perform same sex weddings. I’m really back in the dark ages because I think private businesses should have the right to choose with whom they do business. That’s apparently gone out the window and I would be considered a twentieth century fossil for even suggesting such a thing.

In addition to ignoring the evils of TPP, we’re continuing to ignore the spread of ISIS in the Middle East. Plus we’re continuing to ignore a struggling economy. The national debt is approaching 20 trillion. Everything is overwhelming, and as I’ve stated many times, I no longer know the United States of America. What can we do to make things right?

There are several Bibles scattered in various places in my house. When we pray, God hears us and he answers us. Are all the bad things that are happening now signs that the end is near? We don’t know. Only God knows that. Should we quit worrying ourselves about the insidious things taking place that will surely erode the comfort level in which so many of us have existed our entire lives? Is it our turn to be uncomfortable about the United States being attacked by radical Islam? Is it our turn to be concerned about being able to worship the one true God freely? Is it our turn to worry about the degradation of our health care system, the degradation of the values we were taught in Sunday school?

We don’t know what’s ahead of us and I feel so helpless at times. As I said above, though, there are numerous Bibles scattered throughout my house. I need to pick up one right now. I need to read it and I need to pray. You should, also. That’s where it starts. Then God will surely show us the way.
