Hillary Clinton is this country’s nightmare that never goes away. Ever. This time she is giving her blessing and endorsement to an 11-year-old girl who decided to kneel for the Pledge of Allegiance. I personally consider that disgraceful and unpatriotic behavior. Shame on her parents for allowing such a move. But Clinton praising the child is just opportunistic and offensive. Mariana Taylor is the sixth-grader who just made headlines for kneeling during the Pledge of Allegiance. I bet she never dreamed that Hillary Clinton would step in to give her endorsement of her actions the way she did. I suspect that Clinton was just waiting for the right incident to get her mug back in the media again.
Clinton tweeted in response to a NowThis report on Mariana’s actions which mimic the form of protest by NFL players. “It takes courage to exercise your right to protest injustice, especially when you’re 11! Keep up the good work Mariana,” Clinton tweeted. It was in response to a video post about Taylor who said she was disciplined by her teacher at Catsonville Middle School in Baltimore County, Maryland after she chose to take a knee in protest during the pledge. She claimed it was her right to take a knee. Clinton just told her to keep disrespecting the Pledge of Allegiance and her country. That’s disgraceful.
“It is in my rights to be allowed to kneel … students are allowed to take stands as long as it’s not disruptive to the classroom, and I feel that my confrontation was more disruptive than kneeling itself,” Mariana said. “And we need this policy change so other kids don’t go what I went through.”

This isn’t Taylor first stunt either. Back in May, Taylor, who is a student at Catonsville Middle School, made the headlines in the Washington Post for being a “sixth-grader with strong beliefs about racial injustice, sexism, gay rights and President Trump’s proposed wall at the Mexico border.” Talk about grasping at political straws. WaPo is so desperate that they used a sixth-grader to prove they are right on things that they are abysmally wrong on.
“I kind of wanted to show people that what’s going on is not okay,” Mariana told The Washington Post. Earlier in the school year, when assigned to write a paper about someone she admired, she chose former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who started a national debate and a massive mess with his decision to kneel during the National Anthem to protest police brutality and racial inequality.
During testimony to the Baltimore County School Board, Mariana said her teacher told her that she was “disrespecting the country” and brought up family members serving overseas. “I left the classroom in tears,” said Mariana, whose experience also drew the attention of the American Civil Liberties Union.
“We know of no [Baltimore County Public Schools] student who has been reprimanded or punished for nonparticipation in patriotic observances,” the school said in a statement. “We fully support students’ rights and encourage student voice as articulated in board policy. Their support however for the Pledge of Allegiance and their patriotism is very much in doubt.
Hillary Clinton, with her tweet, has now politicized this even further. She has made it far more than a local school dispute, which was her intention probably.
Taking a stand for those that kneel takes a political stab at President Trump, who has waged a war of words against football players who kneel during the National Anthem. Trump feels as most Americans do that these type of actions are unpatriotic and show disrespect to our country, our military, our police, our first responders and all that we stand for as a nation. None of that apparently bothers Clinton.
Clinton has done this type of nonsense before. She did it last year when promoting her book appropriately entitled: “What Happened.” “Actually, kneeling is a reverent position,” she claimed at the time. “It was to demonstrate in a peaceful way against racism and injustice in our criminal system.”
Clinton is using a misguided child’s actions to benefit herself politically. Why am I not surprised by this? The left seems to only embrace the First Amendment when it benefits them as propaganda or as a weapon. They try to claim First Amendment rights at one turn and shred them at the next. It’s very confusing and disingenuous.
#RespectAmerica– @JudgeJeanine: It is very damaging for Cuomo & Hillary to not respect our flag or anthem. It’s a despicable move toward the Left, to socialism.

Judge Jeanine Pirro slammed Hillary for praising the girl for protesting the Pledge of Allegiance. “It’s despicable,” Judge Pirro said speaking to Lou Dobbs Wednesday evening. I have to agree with that sentiment and I think most Americans do as well.
Lou Dobbs tweeted, “It is very damaging for Cuomo & Hillary to not respect our flag or anthem. It’s a despicable move toward the Left, to socialism. Keep moving ladies & gentlemen because you’re going to move right off the political spectrum.” They already are Lou. They have lurched entirely to the left and the mask is off. Cuomo says that America never was great… that it hasn’t reached greatness yet and I believe that Clinton believes the same thing. So does the Democratic Party for that matter.
All I can say is thank the heavens above that Hillary Clinton did not become president and Trump did. Americans want and deserve a leader who loves their country and those that serve it. Not one who scores cheap political points at every opportunity like this.

You will stand at attention and honor the anthem and our flag. Countless men and women have fought for our nation defending freedom and you will respect and honor the Fallen and our nation and the flag. There is no debate nor is there any discussion.

Major Staff Upheaval Underway NOW At White House – Trump’s Had It!
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by: Reuters
Another round of upheaval engulfed President Donald Trump’s White House on Tuesday, with the future of several senior aides in doubt just a week after U.S. congressional elections.
Three Trump cabinet members – Chief of Staff John Kelly, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke – could soon be gone, said sources familiar with internal discussions in the Republican administration.
Turnover among White House personnel paused during the run-up to last week’s elections after senior Republicans asked Trump to refrain from firing staff, hoping to minimize perceptions of disorder.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions was forced out by Trump last week just hours after the results came in from the Nov. 6 elections, which handed majority control of the House of Representatives to Democrats.
Trump’s first 22 months in office have seen frequent shakeups. A study this year by the Brookings Institution, a think tank, found Trump’s White House has had the highest turnover of senior-level staff of the past five presidents.
In an unusual move, sources said, Trump was also ready to dismiss Mira Ricardel, deputy national security advisor, at the request of his wife, Melania Trump, after a clash between the two over the first lady’s recent trip to Africa.
Melania Trump’s office acknowledged the acrimony.
Trump was expected to remove Nielsen, a source close to the White House said. Nielsen took the job after Trump made Kelly his chief of staff. But now the president is considering getting rid of both them, the source said.
Zinke has been under investigation for several ethics controversies including travel and a business deal in his home state of Montana, casting doubt on how long he would remain at the helm of the agency.
A final decision on his future could be postponed beyond this week. He is scheduled to travel to California on Wednesday and Thursday to visit communities hit by deadly wildfires, the Interior Department said on Tuesday.
Trump last week said Zinke was doing an “excellent job” but left open the possibility of replacing him. “We’re looking at that, and I do want to study whatever is being said,” Trump told reporters last week.
Adding to the sense of upheaval at the White House, Special Counsel Robert Mueller was planning to file more indictments in his 18-month investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion between Moscow and the Trump campaign, sources said.

Florida Dems Blindsided By Attorney General – She Demands Criminal Investigation
In an effort that promises to go on at least until December to recount votes in Florida’s races for U.S. Senate, governor, and the state agriculture commissioner. Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi has now called for criminal investigations into ”irregularities” in the vote counting and the handling of ballots in two South Florida counties by Broward County’s Brenda Snipes who as is being reported now also was lucky enough to “find ballots” in 2012.
Here is more via Breitbart:
“Broward County, Florida election official Brenda Snipes — who is continuing to find new ballots in the recent statewide midterm elections for Governor and the U.S. Senate — was previously accused of finding ballots after an election in 2012.
Government Accountability Insititute (GAI) research director Eric Eggers exclusively told SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Tonight‘s Senior Editor-at-Large Rebecca Mansour that Snipes allegedly “found ballots” following an election in 2012.

She’s also been accused of illegally opening ballots. The Florida GOP sued her for this and when they brought her to court, they said ‘Hey, your office is opening ballots outside the presence of the canvassing board … what’s your explanation?’ And again, the woman in charge of elections in Florida’s second most populous county argued she thought it was okay because her office didn’t understand the meaning of the word ‘canvassing.’ [Emphasis added]
This is also not the first time that her office has just found ballots. There was actually a canvassing official back in 2012 that complained that heading into a weekend, they were told there were about 150 votes left to be counted and then Monday morning, well actually there are about 950 votes still to go. [Emphasis added]
Eggers said there is “clearly an organized effort to manipulate and alter outcomes,” noting that in Miami-Dade County, about 108 provisional ballots were eliminated in the midterm election because they were from individuals who had voted twice.
In a recent piece for Breitbart News, Eggers reviewed Snipes’ history of allowing illegal aliens and felons to vote in elections in Broward County, along with her destroying of ballots.”
The Florida Election should be called in favor of Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis in that large numbers of new ballots showed up out of nowhere, and many ballots are missing or forged. An honest vote count is no longer possible-ballots massively infected. Must go with Election Night!

And here is even more on Snipes via Breitbart:
“On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox Business Network’s “Evening Edit,” Florida Lieutenant Governor Carlos Lopez-Cantera (R) stated that nothing will be ruled out as a potential consequence for Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes (D) for her handling of the 2018 elections.
Lopez-Cantera said, “I’ll tell you going forward, nothing is going to be ruled out, as far as consequences for these horrible, horrible elections that she’s done here in Broward this year. Leading into the election, there were no indications, for the 2018 general election that there were going to be any problems. But, you know, she has shown herself to be clearly incompetent, and like I said, nothing will be taken off the table going forward.”
As of Tuesday Bondi had sent two separate letters to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Rick Swearingen and Secretary of State Ken Detzner where she expressed concern about FDLE’s comments Friday that it is working with Detzner’s office and will investigate reports of cases of voter fraud but had not received any reports as of Friday.
In a statement FDLE said an investigation had not been opened at this time.
“I am deeply troubled by your announcement that you will not pursue any investigation or inquiry into clearly documented irregularities of election officials in Broward and Palm Beach counties,” Bondi wrote Swearingen.
