From 6-22-16 episode of The Rob Zicari Show LIVE 10-1pm M-F
There was a lot going on yesterday. Donald Trump gave an epic speech where he annihilated Hillary Clinton. House Democrats also staged an attention-grabbing sit-in protest on the House floor to demand votes on gun bills. Was it a coincidence that this sit-in occurred on the same day that Trump destroyed Hillary?
The protest was led by John Lewis, who famously was attacked during the Selma march in 1965. The sit-in was meant to invoke the feelings of the civil rights era. Now it’s just a bunch of rich people sitting down and pouting because nobody will do what they want them to do, which is trample the Second Amendment and violate due process.
It’s amazing what Democrats are able to get away with. They talk about taking guns away from Americans, but nobody wants to address the real problem, which is radical Islam. It’s like treating prostate cancer with aspirin.
Democrats get away with it because they control the media. Nobody ever questions their goofy, bizarre logic. We get hit by terrorists and they call it workplace violence or a hate crime. The Fort Hood shooting wasn’t called terrorism. Because of this, the families of the victims weren’t allowed to get benefits. They had to file a lawsuit, which still hasn’t been settled. Nidal Hasan killing 13 people and injuring more than 30 others at the Foot Hood military base in 2009 because he was inspired by Anwar al-Awlaki is still classified as workplace violence. Unbelievable.
So while the media is focused on John Lewis and the House Democrat temper tantrum, let’s break down the speech that Trump delivered in New York yesterday.
Just about every scandalous thing that Hillary has been involved with was in the speech. Things that someone in the media might ask her about if she ever allowed them to speak to her unscripted. Do you think it’s a coincidence that Hillary never holds press conferences? They can control Wolf Blitzer or George Stephanopoloulos, but they can’t control some rogue reporter trying to make a name for himself and get to the big time. The Hillary campaign knows this, so they keep the press at arms length.
Besides the Hillary scandals, Trump focused on the effect Democratic policies have on Hispanics and African-Americans. I’ve said it before, Republicans could get the black vote if they pointed out how Democrats don’t care about them. Look at the violence in Chicago, a city controlled by a Democrat. Republicans have long courted the Latino vote, but have left the huge potential of getting the African-American vote untapped. I don’t know why.
Of course, Republicans should try to appeal to everybody, but as far as I’m concerned, black people should be the easiest to get on their side. If you point out what Democrats have done in the inner cities to keep black folks down, they will understand. They will get it, and will come over to the GOP in droves. If you point out who their mayor is, who their state representatives are, and you break down what they stand for, how long they’ve been serving and you show what they’ve done for them, it won’t be that hard to convince African-American voters that Democrats don’t give a crap about black people.
From the speech:
Hillary Clinton has put forward the most radical immigration platform in the history of the United States.
She has pledged to grant mass amnesty and in her first 100 days, end virtually all immigration enforcement, and thus create totally open borders in the United States.
The first victims of her radical policies will be poor African-American and Hispanic workers who need jobs. They are the ones she will hurt the most.
Let me share with you a letter our campaign received from Mary Ann Mendoza.
She lost her amazing son, Police Sergeant Brandon Mendoza, after he was killed by an illegal immigrant because of the open borders policies supported by Hillary Clinton.
Sadly, the Mendoza family is just one of thousands who have suffered the same fate.
Here is an excerpt from Mrs. Mendoza’s letter:
“Hillary Clinton, who already has the blood of so many on her hands, is now announcing that she is willing to put each and every one of our lives in harms’ way – an open door policy to criminals and terrorists to enter our country. Hillary is not concerned about you or I, she is only concerned about the power the presidency would bring to her. She needs to go to prison to pay for the crimes she has already committed against this country.”
Hillary also wants to spend hundreds of billions to resettle Middle Eastern refugees in the United States, on top of the current record level of immigration.
For the amount of money Hillary Clinton would like to spend on refugees, we could rebuild every inner city in America.
Trump’s message has always been America first. Giving all Americans the opportunity to succeed. That’s a powerful message, man. It really is.
Trump also brought up the Bosnia story, where Hillary claimed to be under sniper fire when she landed in Bosnia, when in fact she was greeted at the airport by young girls handing her flowers. It’s funny, because he brought up Brian Williams, saying his “career was destroyed for saying far less.” I wonder what Bri-Wi thought of that one. It’ll be interesting to see MSNBC’s take on it. Remember, Brian Williams lost one of the most prestigious jobs a newscaster can have, anchoring the nightly news on a network. He lost his job and his reputation was ruined because he said his helicopter was under attack. Hillary says the same thing and is the Democratic nominee for president.
Hillary Clinton has perfected the politics of personal profit and theft.
She ran the State Department like her own personal hedge fund – doing favors for oppressive regimes, and many others, in exchange for cash.
This is 100% true. Will CNN or MSNBC investigate that? Nope.
Then, when she left, she made $21.6 million giving speeches to Wall Street banks and other special interests – in less than 2 years – secret speeches that she does not want to reveal to the public.
Together, she and Bill made $153 million giving speeches to lobbyists, CEOs, and foreign governments in the years since 2001.
They totally own her, and that will never change.
Let me explain how spin works in the media. They’ve made people believe that she does what every other former president has done, which is to get large sums of money for making speeches. But she’s not a former president. Doing what she did while serving as Secretary of State was a huge conflict of interest. The media has maneuvered people into thinking that she’s merely done what other presidents have done, so it’s no big deal.
Hillary Clinton has also been the biggest promoter of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which will ship millions more of our jobs overseas – and give up Congressional power to an international foreign commission.
Now, because I have pointed out why it would be such a disastrous deal, she is pretending that she is against it. She has even deleted this record of total support from her book – deletion is something she is very good at — (at least 30,000 emails are missing.)
But this latest Clinton cover-up doesn’t change anything: if she is elected president, she will adopt the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and we will lose millions of jobs and our economic independence for good. She will do this, just as she has betrayed the American worker on trade at every single stage of her career – and it will be even worse than the Clintons’ NAFTA deal.
Trump brings up a point that I think would be a total slam dunk for Wolf Blitzer or Jake Tapper, asking Hillary “why did you delete those passages from your book?” This is why Hillary is not going to do press conferences, and the media is not going to push her to have press conferences. Can you imagine if Trump stopped having his famous press conferences? They would talk about it every day. “What is he hiding? Why no press conferences? He’s afraid of questions. You can’t be commander in chief and be scared of questions.” It would be all we heard.
Trump also brought up some of the revelations from the book Clinton Cash, and her failure to disclose over 1,000 foreign donations while at the State Department:
A foreign telecom giant faced possible State Department sanctions for providing technology to Iran, and other oppressive regimes. So what did this company do? For the first time ever, they decided to pay Bill Clinton $750,000 for a single speech. The Clintons got their cash, the telecom company escaped sanctions.
Hillary Clinton’s State Department approved the transfer of 20% of America’s uranium holdings to Russia, while 9 investors in the deal funneled $145 million to the Clinton Foundation.
Why won’t Hillary have press conferences? This is why. Wolf Blitzer’s not going to ask her about it. Neither is Jake Tapper. Rachel Maddow’s too busy hugging Hillary to ask her about it. It’s astonishing that none of this has been flushed out. You would think this would be something the media would talk about for weeks. But no, they’re talking about Judge Curiel and Trump talking about boobs on the Howard Stern show 20 years ago. A girl in a bathing suit. A fight with Rosie O’Donnell.
Trump goes on:
Hillary Clinton appointed a top donor to a national security board with top secret access – even though he had no national security credentials.
Hillary Clinton accepted $58,000 in jewelry from the government of Brunei when she was Secretary of State – plus millions more for her foundation. The Sultan of Brunei has pushed oppressive Sharia law, including the punishment of death by stoning for being gay. The government of Brunei also stands to be one of the biggest beneficiaries of Hillary’s Trans-Pacific Partnership, which she would absolutely approve if given the chance.
Hillary Clinton took up to $25 million from Saudi Arabia, where being gay is also punishable by death.
Hillary took millions from Kuwait, Qatar, Oman and many other countries that horribly abuse women and LGBT citizens.
These are facts, and the media ignores them. My sister, who is super gay, told me she doesn’t care what happens in other countries, she only cares what happens here. She’s a low information gay voter.
To cover-up her corrupt dealings, Hillary Clinton illegally stashed her State Department emails on a private server.
Her server was easily hacked by foreign governments – perhaps even by her financial backers in Communist China – putting all of America in danger.
Then there are the 33,000 emails she deleted.
While we may not know what is in those deleted emails, our enemies probably do.
So they probably now have a blackmail file over someone who wants to be President of the United States.
This fact alone disqualifies her from the Presidency.
We can’t hand over our government to someone whose deepest, darkest secrets may be in the hands of our enemies.
National security is also immigration security –
and Hillary wants neither.
This is legit. About a year ago, there was a story about the Pentagon servers being hacked, and Pentagon employees had their personal information stolen. There was concern that terrorists could get this information and find them and kill them.
This is the Pentagon. Our government. Are you going to tell me that Hillary Clinton’s server next to the toilet in her Chappaqua, New York home was secure? Come on, man. The Inspector General’s report even said there were suspected hacks. The server at the DNC was recently hacked, and the media hasn’t talked about it yet. Celebrity’s nude pictures are hacked from their cell phones. These aren’t experienced professionals doing this. If a novice hacker can get into a celebrity’s iPhone, are you going to tell me a seasoned pro couldn’t hack Hillary’s server? Give me a break.
This list goes on and on of the shady things the Clintons do. When she says she did what every other person in the State Department has done, she’s lying. And the media never calls her out on it. Again, this is why she will not do press conferences.
Think about the rationale of a media that will call out Trump for everything he says about Mexicans or Muslims or women, but Hillary does favors for countries that kill gays and oppress women and nobody says a thing. What Trump says is so horrible and evil that he gets boycotted, but what is worse than a country who mutilates a woman’s genitals or chops off a person’s head if they are gay?
Donald Trump said he wants to build a wall on the Southern border because some of the people who are crossing over are rapists, murderers and drug dealers. He wants to deport illegal immigrants. He wants to enforce the law. I still don’t see how this is worse than taking a gay man and throwing him off a building, chopping his head off or hanging him from a crane.
Trump is compared to Hitler because he wants to enforce the law. Really? Enforcing the law is on the same level as gassing six million Jews?
Hillary Clinton has no problem coddling repressive regimes that murder gays and oppress and mutilate women, but she says Donald Trump is evil. OK.
This is all legitimate stuff. When Trump talks about Vince Foster being murdered, I’ll roll my eyes. But when he brings up uranium deals, when he talks about repressive regimes and Bill Clinton taking huge sums of money from telecom giants, this is all real. These are legitimate claims that should be investigated.
Do you want to know the real reason Hillary got a private server? Because Obama told her he didn’t want her to bring any heat on his administration with her shady deals. It’s like that scene in Goodfellas where Paulie tells Henry to stop selling junk because he doesn’t want to die in prison like Gribbs. Obama told her he didn’t care what she did before she became Secretary of State, but don’t do any questionable business on State Department computers. So she went home and told Bill and they set up a private server, because they didn’t want to interrupt that money flow. Then Hillary got together with her girlfriend Huma Abedin and worked out what they would say if she got caught.
That’s why she had a secret server. Obama knew what was going on, but as long as he didn’t see it, he could pretend he didn’t know anything about it.
You won’t hear the press talk about this at all. This is why Hillary will not hold a press conference.
The opening of Trump’s speech kind of sums it all up:
People have asked me why I am running for President.
I have built an amazing business that I love and I get to work side-by-side with my children every day.
We come to work together and turn visions into reality.
We think big, and then we make it happen.
I love what I do, and I am grateful beyond words to the nation that has allowed me to do it.
So when people ask me why I am running, I quickly answer: I am running to give back to this country which has been so good to me.
When I see the crumbling roads and bridges, or the dilapidated airports, or the factories moving overseas to Mexico, or to other countries, I know these problems can all be fixed, but not by Hillary Clinton – only by me.
The fact is, we can come back bigger and better and stronger than ever before –Jobs, jobs, jobs!
Everywhere I look, I see the possibilities of what our country could be. But we can’t solve any of these problems by relying on the politicians who created them.
We will never be able to fix a rigged system by counting on the same people who rigged it in the first place.
The insiders wrote the rules of the game to keep themselves in power and in the money.
That’s why we’re asking Bernie Sanders’ voters to join our movement: so together we can fix the system for ALL Americans. Importantly, this includes fixing all of our many disastrous trade deals.
Because it’s not just the political system that’s rigged. It’s the whole economy.
It’s rigged by big donors who want to keep down wages.
It’s rigged by big businesses who want to leave our country, fire our workers, and sell their products back into the U.S. with absolutely no consequences for them.
It’s rigged by bureaucrats who are trapping kids in failing schools.
It’s rigged against you, the American people.
Hillary Clinton who, as most people know, is a world class liar.
Truer words were never spoken.
