Well, now we know. How many people were surprised by Sunday's announcement that Hillary Clinton will seek the nomination of the Democratic Party for the president of the United States? One thing we do know, the number is close to zero. Except for the low information voters.

With almost no sincerity, Hillary came out with her vision for America. Instead of attacking her would-be opponents, she decided it should all be about Hillary. Clinton is going to be the champion of the middle class. She's going to be about income equality. She's going to be about equal pay for equal work. Were I heard that before? Perhaps you Obama administration?

The issues of the 20 16th campaign are going to be the same as they were in 2012. In 2008. In 2000. In 1992. In 1972. There are no new ideas. There are no new issues. Every four years we elect a president who campaigned on solving certain issues. But the next election cycle, they're the same.

Hillary driving around the country in a van named Scooby is just ridiculous. How long does she think she can maintain the façade that shields above the fray and not the backstabbing muck rake her character assassin we have all grown to know over the past two decades. I'm sure the media will be helping her touting her as the real Hillary. Hillary will be Hillary. The real deal. But for anybody who is familiar with the Democrat rhetoric, you know that what is being said is about the opposite of what is actually being done.

Hillary and the Democrats believe Americans are so dumb all we have to do is lie to them enough and we will start to believe it as the truth. America is headed in the wrong direction. It's time to change course.

The Best Democrat

We are within a few short weeks of having our next president announced her candidacy. Yes, I'm talking about our president in waiting: Hillary Clinton.

Democrats have been falling all over themselves half believing that this decision is still up in the air. They're even trying to get other Democrats in the race in a halfhearted attempt to believe that the coronation of the president in waiting is going to be competitive. That there will be actual serious candidates willing to debate the president in waiting and having been defeated will have to bow out and turn their support to Mrs. Clinton.

Will the media be in her corner as much as they were for then candidate Barack Obama in 2008? Americans should be looking for some answers to some very specific questions. First, what happened in Benghazi? It's time to get some real answers and not just dismiss it because it was so long ago. Second, how about some answers about this e-mail server?

Anybody who remembers the first Clinton administration knows that the term, God forbid another happens, was filled with cover ups, scandals, and lies. Why would we think this time is going to be any different? As we have seen evidenced, the e-mail server is preparation for getting rid of evidence that may be incriminating or revealing. Sure it was done for convenience-convenient to get rid of what actually happened not only in Benghazi, but also what other foreign dignitaries and countries have been solicited for political favors by making up contribution to the Clinton foundation? But stop kidding ourselves America, the Clintons leave they are entitled to special treatment, better favors, and less scrutiny than anybody else.

For generations, Democrats have pointed out that Republicans have been the party of old white people and their presidential nominees have traditionally waited their turn. Nothing better describes the Democratic Party for 2016. Is it Hillary's turn? Will there be a coronation for our president in waiting? And more importantly, can't the Democrats come up with a better candidate? Is Hillary the best they can do?

Don't Mention That Word

This week, the White House rolled out their best solution for how Americans can defeat ISIS -or  ISIL. According to the administration, we've been too mean to them and haven't provided enough opportunities for them. ISIS has been denied so many opportunities that it has let them down the road to violence and atrocities according to the State Department.

The president refuses to call it Islamic terrorism. Apparently word grouping too many people into that category and having several omissions. It's a labeling thing. The administration has no problem labeling people as obstructionists, bigots, or Republicans. But when it comes to the nation of Islam, we have to tiptoe around that. There's never been a problem with poking fun at religions such as Catholic or Jewish, telling jokes and drawing offensive cartoons has never been beyond the pale. It's been a celebration of the First Amendment. And that's just great. But if we do the same, draw any cartoon that can be construed as being the prophet Mohammed, that's basis or jail time.

Marie Hart, spokesman for the State Department, tried to convince us that poverty in these countries that are supplying us with terrorists and Islamic terrorists just need better jobs. Perhaps an increase in the minimum wage in Syria will put a lot of this to rest. This would actually be funny if we did not have to take it serious. Every time I see Marie speak, I can't stop thinking that all she needs is a mustache. She's got the nose and the glasses already.

The world is changing and we are not going to adapt by turning our back or not identifying what the real problem is. America must move forward and identify this problem and create a real plan for how to defend this country. It will not be resolved using tactics of community organizers. Unfortunately, will have to wait two more years at least until we get a new president. A president who will be able to address foreign-policy issues and not just try to transform America internally.

Running Out of Gas

Gasoline is always been a controversial subject. Where it comes from, the pollution, global warming, taxes etc. the price spikes, we try to conserve and blame high prices on everything else and connected to the price of gasoline. The price dips, government agencies see what they can do to increase the taxes and keep the price level of gasoline where it is. After all, were used to paying that price.

Not a Prayer

Just a few years ago, the annual prayer breakfast was an annual ceremony that had to be attended by the President of the United States. There was not much fanfare about this event that the president always attended and there was never much ado about it. Then, several years ago there were some remarks made by a neurologist and brain surgeon Doctor Ben Carson. After that, things changed.

Doctor Carson was expected to make some flattering comments about President Obama and his health care plan. But instead of falling in lockstep with what liberals in the media were expecting, Doctor Carson spoke the truth. His comments were critical of the affordable care act which shocked the liberal media and now the annual prayer breakfast is a high-profile event.

This year, President Obama took the opportunity to use this photo op and be critical of the American people. We all know that when the president speaks of Americanism and the American way, he demonstrates his disdain for this country. He views it as unfair or, immoral, and unjust. He believes it is his duty to use his presidency to correct all of these wrongs.

Americans are supposed to be ashamed of themselves according to this president. Look at what we've done. We founded this country and Christian values knowing full well that the Crusades had taken place hundreds of years earlier. We founded this country without first outlawing indentured servitude. Was that ever corrected? Those two events alone take us to today. For we are intolerant of extremist extremism or something like that. Too many Americans want to call upon the First Amendment and use the word Islamic terrorism. Shame on us Americans.

According to the president, there may be several packs of lone wolves with bad attitudes that are spoiling it for the rest of the Muslim world. According to the president all religions should lay down their arms and walk all over the world and hug everyone that we see. This is the only way to bring world peace. Perhaps we should re-indoctrinate the children of all ages.

Well, that's what I got out of his speech. Critics including those in the liberal media have called that speech the worst of his presidency. He nudged out his second worst speech; the state of the union address of 2015.
