It’s one of the great mysteries of the current election season. On one hand we have Donald Trump, who last week delivered substantive, well-received policy speeches on defeating radical Islam, rescuing America’s disintegrating economy and quelling the growing epidemic of urban racial violence by finally addressing core issues. He even publicly expressed regret over ill-considered comments he has made during the campaign that have “caused personal pain.” On the other hand we have Hillary Clinton, who, despite being protected at every turn by an outrageously biased news media, is the focus of ever-cascading scandals and is now seen by more people than ever as a lying criminal. If elected president, she says she would continue and enlarge Obama’s policies – the same disastrous policies that have destroyed America’s economy, increased terrorism in the homeland, popularized outright socialism, divided the nation into angry warring factions, and maintained a constant flood into the American homeland of unassimilable Muslim immigrants from the most radical places on earth. Up against Hillary Clinton’s radical-left, third-Obama-term agenda, Trump’s agenda is overwhelmingly conservative – pro-life on abortion, pro-Second Amendment, pro-energy independence, pro-rebuilding our military, pro-enforcement of our immigration laws, securing our borders, reducing business-crushing taxes and regulations, and so on. By any sane standard, Trump’s plans would make America a better, safer and more prosperous place than would Hillary’s. Why, then, we may rightly wonder, do so many supposedly good people – including many Christians, conservatives, Republicans, even GOP leaders – refuse to support their party’s presidential nominee who, during the primaries, proved to be Republican voters’ overwhelming choice, garnering more votes than any GOP primary candidate in history? To understand what’s going on, let’s zoom out to 35,000 feet and get a quick panoramic view of “the lay of the land.”

The lid of the 1-ton tank at the sprawling Tesoro refinery “blew off” about 1 p.m., said Inspector Gustavo Medina of the Los Angeles County Fire Department. The sulfur in the tank dissipated, but insulation material caught fire, sending a plume of smoke over the facility, Medina said. No injuries were reported, but sheriff’s officials ordered anyone within a quarter of a mile of the refinery to shelter in place as a precaution.

Of course, she forgot to mention she took $20,000 from the Ku Klux Klan this year. The Washington Times reported: Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign has received more than $20,000 in donations contributed by members of the Ku Klux Klan, a prominent member of the hate group said Monday. “For the KKK, Clinton is our choice,” said Will Quigg, California Grand Dragon for the Loyal White Knights, Vocativ reported. Mr. Quigg, the leader of the Klan’s California chapter, announced last month that he had abandoned supporting Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump in lieu of backing his likely Democratic opponent. The Klansman claims that members have raised more than $20,000 for Mrs. Clinton and have donated it anonymously to her campaign. “She is friends with the Klan,” Mr. Quigg told Vocativ. “A lot of people don’t realize that.”

DONALD TRUMP FULL INTERVIEW WITH ANDERSON COOPER CNN (8/25/2016)
The member told the paper that the open Bible on Lewis’ desk gives the impression that Christianity is the favored religion on the base. The Independent added that dozens of military members contacted the MRFF to report the Bible after it was brought up in a survey last year but not removed. Feltman told the Independent that the investigation will be conducted quickly: ”If a person has a Koran display or book of Satan, they’re free to have that on display and read it as long as they’re not proselytizing, trying to entice someone to their particular viewpoint.” After Feltman told Weinstein an investigation was underway, the MRFF founder issued the following statement to the Independent:
The 310th “Space” Wing is NOT called the 310th “Space For My Personal Proselytizing Christian Bible Shrine” Wing for a damn good reason. Major Steve Lewis has created an around-the-clock Christian Bible Shrine on his official USAF workstation desk that has been in prominent static display for YEARS. The pages in his open bible on his USAF desk never change, ever. Thus, it is obviously there as a religious display to promote to others his Christian faith. This sectarian display is a disastrous travesty which completely serves all too well as an absolute textbook violation of Air Force Instruction
