Breaking News from the New Hillary Clinton Investigation, Shocking New Allegations Prove Donald Trump is Right.

Instruction of Justice Provocateur Donald Trump just struck gold as his repeated demands for never ending Investigations into Hillary "Snowball" Clinton's activities have revealed Bill Clinton secretly contacted North Korea about Hacking into the Republican National Committee prior to the 2016 Presidential Election with the hope of finding "dirt" on Donald Trump and the RNC.

Clearly this new found allegation trump's anything that has been leveled at the Trump's about their alleged seeking of dirt on Hillary Clinton prior to the 2016 Presidential Elections. This new found allegation is easily 10 times worse, if not a 100 times worse than any alleged pursuit or recruitment of Russian Hackers that has been leveled at the Trump's.

This article will be updated as new information becomes available.

Trumps Shi__ole comment not necessarily racist, and is the wrong issue to focus on, here's why.

As DailyPUMA has mentioned in the past, Donald Trump is definitely economically racist but not necessarily racially racist. In DailyPUMA's opinion, any race that Trump can profit from in a business venture is a race that Trump will like, it's really that simple.

Norway has been propping up several Stock Markets by reinvesting their oil profits in them. Then those Stock Markets invest in additional Stock Markets. It appears that Norway, and DP is guessing Germany may be the other, are the two countries stabilizing the World's Stock Markets. What Trump won't acknowledge is these two "white" counties radically believe in renewable energy and are extremely concerned about Global Warming, or, possibly the more accurate term would be Climate Change. 

Climate Change could mean the earth is not necessarily warming that quickly, rather hotter hots and colder colds can be just as devastating. Could the World Survive 100 degrees during the day and 30 degrees at night, probably not, yet that type of temperature differential could be just as lethal as actual global warming while not necessarily producing an alarming increase in the earth's average temperature.

Recently Trump mocked Global Warming because of a huge snowstorm in the East and very very cold temperatures elsewhere. Yet Climate Change fits the very very cold temperatures in some parts of the world while other parts experience hotter climates, perfectly. Kind of like the way a Microwave works. Quickly warm up food, then the food dries out quicker as well. Global Microwaving or Climate Change is probably going on all over the world as Trump attempts to quash the term Global Warming because of colder than normal weather events.

DP does not approve of Trump's Shi__ole comment, but what gets lost if we focus on his comment is that Trump keeps cherry picking from the top of the muffin when he refers to the countries he idolizes. Trump reveres Norway and Germany, yet refuses to acknowledge that both countries desire to increase their renewable energy footprint while also believing in Climate Change, two things that Trump is obtuse about, to say the least. 

Trump once again diverts the media's attention from the real issue, which is rather than focus on the countries he loathes for not being economically viable, why not ask why Trump doesn't follow Norway and Germany's lead when it comes to Renewable Energy AND their Climate Change concerns and leave the shi__ole comment for another day? The constant running around like scurrying mouses at every sewer based comment Trump makes misses the bigger picture, and that is that Trump continues to cherry pick every issue and the media lets him get away with it.

DailyPUMA upcoming Articles

The delicate balance of computer time and real life and real things to do is no easy task. DailyPUMA has literally not logged on for several days. As a result DP is making a list of several upcoming articles before they escape DP's memory banks.
  • The Circle of Life and Hillary Clinton and what happened in 1999 that changed things between Russia and the U.S. and how the FBI and 60 Minutes was involved.
  • Oprah explains What Happened and Hollywood is blown away as if she was the one who actually caused What Happened, to happen.
  • Diane Feinstein provides additional proof that the FBI was investigating Donald Trump prior to the 2016 Presidential Election, yet said nothing.
  • Donald Trump's Secret, not so Secret War against the NFL is nothing more than a 3 decade temper tantrum.
  • Kim Jong Un explains that his Nuclear Weapons are only pointed at the U.S., therefore Russia and China have nothing to worry about, seriously?

The Election Math that never Added up for Hillary Clinton.

One of the strangest Mathematical twists in the 2016 presidential election results was Barack and Michelle Obama magnificently hitting it out of the park on behalf of Hillary Clinton when it came time to get out the Progressive Vote, yet their help may have actually caused Hillary Clinton a net negative because of the Moderate Voters who switched from her to Donald Trump.

Hillary Clinton lost some of her Moderate base to Donald Trump by keeping silent about the Obama Administration's Mortgage relief program that failed to protect many struggling homeowners.

So every Moderate vote that switched from Hillary Clinton to Donald Trump is equivalent to a double vote for Donald Trump. One less Clinton Moderate is a loss of one vote for Hillary Clinton, when that Moderate then switches to Donald Trump, then it becomes a gain of one vote for Donald Trump, so a minus one plus a plus one equals a two vote switch every time a moderate vote switched from Hillary Clinton to Donald Trump. 

Lets assume Barack and Michelle Obama helped Hillary Clinton gain an additional 10 million Progressive Votes. When Hillary Clinton kept silent against Bernie Sanders ridiculous accusations against her (at Barack Obama's request for the good of party unity) and when she also keept silent about Barack Obama's poor home mortgage relief program, Hillary Clinton may have lost 7 million Moderate Voters to Donald Trump. 

The net result would be 10 million votes gained from Barack and Michelle Obama's support minus 7 million former Hillary Clinton Moderate Supporters going over to Donald Trump, which has to be multiplied by 2 for a net gain of 14 million. 10 million Progressive votes for Hillary Clinton minus 14 million against equals a net gain of 4 million votes for Donald Trump!

But what about Conservative Voters who were embarrassed and disgusted by Donald Trump's behavior throughout the 2016 campaign? Many Conservatives who were considering switching over to Hillary Clinton or simply not voting changed their minds when they were encouraged by Conservative Religious leaders all over the U.S. to vote for Donald Trump because Donald Trump would be picking the next Supreme Court Justice.

If you doubt the Conservatives voted for Trump because of Judicial issues, then look no further than Alabama, where a whopping 72% of the White Males and 63% of the White Females recently voted for Roy Moore even after overwhelming evidence was submitted that he had routinely pursued teenage girls half his age three and four decades ago.

The actual loss of votes to the opposing political party that Hillary Clinton might have been victim of helps explain why Al Gore did not seek Bill Clinton's support after Bill Clinton's two terms in office. However, at that time Bill Clinton was the ONLY President in the past 60 years to leave office more popular then when he was elected, so in Gore's case it might not have been the right call.

The silence on the negative's of Obama's record by Hillary Clinton opened the door for Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump to have a field day at the expense of Hillary Clinton and her Moderate Base.

One of the lasting negative effects of 2016 which could very well hurt the Democrats in 2020 was Hillary Clinton's silence in regards to Barack Obama's glaring mortgage mistakes that hurt the Rust Belt States and her silence against Donald Trump's incoherent, repetitive and rambling attacks against Hillary Clinton, and Bernie Sander's needlessly suctioning many union groups away from Hillary Clinton when everyone knew Hillary Clinton was pro-Union.

Democrat Moderates and Progressives still won't acknowledge the one or two really big mistakes made by the Barack Obama administration. By not owning up to what went wrong during Obama's Administration, and DailyPUMA places the home mortgage modification program at the top of the list, Democrats have inadvertently distanced themselves from the Rust Belt States that they once handily owned.

Making Fun of Hillary Clinton, by Vanity Fair.

Please note the visual cues in this unfunny one minute video tribute to Hillary Clinton from the hopefully soon to be jobless Vanity UnFair Editors. 

The meaning behind the champagne glass being held by each member of the editorial staff of Vanity UnFair is possibly making fun of Hillary Clinton for GIVING UP and settling for possibly imbibing when she should be striving to improve, for possibly not striving to fix that which she can fix, which was being a huge proponent of healthcare while not being cardio fit nor seeming to give a rats arse about being cardio fit.

Wake up Hillary Clinton. Get in Cardio Shape and be ready for 2020 or earlier, just in case, that is the real message behind the unfunny Vanity Unfair Video Missive.

TV Show Madam Secretary either mocks or mirrors DailyPUMAs May 31, 2017 Article by showing Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord on an Elliptical while talking to Daisy.

Hillary Clinton's tragic flaw has been mentioned by DailyPUMA on SEVERAL occasions, she's not physically / cardio fit.  

DailyPUMA has SPECIFICALLY mentioned that Hillary Clinton could have overcome ALL of the BS that was thrown in her way prior to the 2016 Presidential Election if she had done some interviews while working out on an elliptical.

Click here to view this topic on Facebook.

The doubt created around her physical fitness was something Hillary Clinton chose to conceal rather than fight through. Even Trump suggested Hillary Clinton was less fit than himself and Hillary Clinton had no comeback, no proof to counter the accusation. Trump even dared Hillary Clinton to a drug test to see who was "cleaner". Trump attacked, Hillary Clinton chose to win the debates, while losing the mano a mano challenges, the schoolyard brawls.

It's really a tragic flaw that Hillary Clinton just did not see and still does not see the need to be cardio fit. The TV Show Madam Secretary just created and Broadcast a storyline involving Te'a Leoni's Secretary of State character Elizabeth McCord being encouraged to run for president.  In one scene McCord is shown ON AN ELLIPTICAL talking to Daisy as Daisy asks for a day off.

DailyPUMA was accused of many things for making the lack of cardio fitness claim against Hillary Clinton. For the doubters, please explain away the Madam Secretary episode that just ran on TV last Sunday, December 17 2017 which features McCord on her Elliptical, the episode is called "Women Transform the World".

A really big life lesson is to never expect to control when you are needed, or when your country may need you, but, instead to just be ready, just in case. 

While many laugh it up when Hillary Clinton is shown on Steven Colbert's show with two wine glasses between them (she actually only had one sip), I see it as a set up against her one final chance to become president. 

I am not convinced that Trump will make it through his first term because of his prior behavior, and if Hillary Clinton were to appear to have had a cardio make over, I believe she could run as an independent or be the overwhelming democrat choice for a 2020 run, or sooner if it is revealed the 2016 election was rigged by James Comey when he refused to publicize the ongoing FBI investigations against Donald Trump while twice publicizing his investigation against Hillary Clinton.

Meanwhile, as the U.S. burns, is Hillary Clinton fiddling, or at the very least getting in cardio shape, just in case.

Republicans should Rework Trump's Income Tax Bill, here's why.

Donald Trump's Income Tax Reduction plan is simple, healthy cuts for the wealthy so they can keep pumping up the Stock Market. Nothing thrills Trump more than an ever increasing Stock Market and the simplest approach to keeping the Stock Market rallying is to roll back many environmental restrictions while giving hefty income tax savings to the wealthy.

Many Stock run ups are pumped by the wealthy who are able to pump the Stock Market until eventually the average citizen feels like they are missing out. The Average Citizen jumps in, and suddenly the rug is pulled out, or, Lucy pulls the football away just as Charlie Brown is going to kick it.

Trump's income tax bill could allow the stock market to FALSELY and PREMATURELY reach record levels up and until after the 2020 re–election. If Republicans don't see the benefit in eight years of Trump, then Republicans need to step in and truly whittle the Income Tax bill so that it helps the middle class, and gives a slight benefit to the wealthy as well.

The Corporate Tax Rate should be reduced somewhere to the range of 30% to 27.5%. No double taxation in which taxpayers pay State Income Taxes and Home Property Taxes, and then can't deduct all of it on their Federal Income Tax. Hospital expenses need to be deducted as well. Interest rate charges need to be deductible as well. 

Most importantly, in the quixotic quest to originally reduce the number of income index levels, no discussion, none at all, was directed towards CAPPING any of the rates once income reached half a million, or one million dollars, that is where the real scamming is going on. Not only will the richest of the rich get to keep more of their income, they then get much higher dividends from Corporate profits, AND, the super wealthy can then invest and if they lose, can also deduct their losses, the tax cut is literally an endless feedback loop of rollover riches.

However, perhaps the number one issue that was completely ignored was what to do about the coming robot and drone revolution. The Robot and the Drone Industry will create many excellent paying jobs, while dismantling perhaps 3 to 10 times as many physical labor jobs previously done by humans. Did the Republican dominated Congress just give additional wealth to the very people who will try and accelerate the use of robotics and drones to further maximize profits? 

Trump now wants to focus on infrastructure. DailyPUMA sees the brutal irony in focusing on infrastructure just as vehicle automation takes hold. Will infrastructure money go to those who are heavily investing in robotics and drone innovation, in essence using taxpayer money to deprive taxpayers of the benefit of the money they pay into the system?

The Aggressive Tone and Nature of Donald Trump in practically everything he does should be ratcheted down by Republican Legislators if Republicans hope to do ok in 2018 and 2020 elections. 

Whenever Trump brashly wants something, it's because either he himself, his family, those he is indebted to, or his donors will benefit the most. Republican Politicians need to have figured this out by now and need to come together to do MODERATE income tax changes rather than the radical changes that Donald Trump wants for selfish purposes.  

(After this article was written it is rumored that Donald Trump confided to his closest donors that they were going to make out like bandits because of the new tax bill.)

How do Bible Trumpers and Roy Moore Supporters Reconcile The Meek Shall Inherit the Earth with the Ends Justify the Means?

How do Roy Moore Supporters Reconcile "The Meek Shall Inherit the Earth" with "The Ends Justify the Means"? The two sayings propose wildly different social philosphies, about as different as is possible. Roy Moore supporters, please answer in the comments section. 

Please don't answer that if the Roy Moore accusations were true, why did they take so long to come out, because the answer is social media (which has only been dominant for the past 7 to 8 years) is the driver, and Trumps constant lying was the catalyst. And lets not forget that Hollywood got lambasted BEFORE Moore. You Conservatives liked it when Hollywood got their comeuppance, but the moment it was an alleged Conservative Christian named Roy Moore who walked on the wrong side, suddenly it was a conspiracy. 

Sure, the media lied about Barack Obama and his racist Dodd / Frank Bill that cut and burned millions of dedicated and honest Rust Belt homeowners and yes the Media even hid the Obama blessed, racist practice of Parallel Foreclosure, but now Trump is lying his ass off on a myriad of issues which probably helped start the Hollywood whirlwind of accusations BEFORE ROY MOORE and also why OLDER people now have said enough is enough in regards to Roy Moore's behavior from 30 to 40 years ago.

How do you, as a Roy Moore supporter and Bible Trumper, feel about TWO Democrat Congressman stepping down while alleged child dominator Mr. Moore rides in to save the day for Lying Donald Trump? 

Neo Conservatives have already crossed the line with the "Who cares about Trump's behavior as long as he picks the right Supreme Court Justice" swagger that got Trump elected, that was the day you became a Bible  Trumper.

Supporters for Roy Moore sure seem to like the Religion by Convenience fit Bible Trumper's have placed their faith in. I guess it will be up to the Liberal Democrats to tow the Moral Line while you Bible Trumper's cross it and luxuriate in Trumps Devil Swamp in which the Ends always Justify the Means. Meek no More, Enjoy your Ends justifying the Means as only a Swamp Dwelling Bible Trumper can do.

What if the Clintons made a short video being showered with dollar bills because of all the Money the Trump Tax Plan will Save them?

What if the Clintons made a short video being showered with dollar bills because of all the Money the Trump Tax Plan will Save them?  What if the Obama's made a short video being showered with dollar bills because of all the Money the Trump Tax Plan will Save them? Would Trump still be in a rush to Pass his Income Tax Plan?

How do we allow someone who hid his income taxes the right to push through a ridiculous income tax bill that is about giving back to his donors? Answer, unrepentant Religious fascists who feel the ends justify the means. Wow.

North Korea just won the Nuclear Arms War as the U.S. just Watched.

The U.S. should have shot down the last North Korea Nuclear Test Missile flight because it went so high into the atmosphere that if it had had a warhead on it and it had detonated at its apex, it could have destroyed untold satellite networks on which our ENTIRE ECONOMY and the WORLD'S ECONOMY runs on.

A North Korea nuclear weapon does not have to reach the U.S. mainland to possibly annihilate millions of people, it just has to wreak havoc amongst the satellites way up high.

The U.S. simply cannot shoot down incoming missiles with 100% accuracy, yet North Korea does even have to reach the U.S. mainland to devastate the U.S. and the World. It's just a matter of time before North Korea destroys the World's economy because they are being deprived of their own economy via ongoing sanctions.

The North Korea situation is basically a repeat of the DeepWater Horizon catastrophe in which an underwater drill bit malfunctioned in the Gulf and because the malfunction was so deep underwater, humans could not reach the site to do relatively simple repairs as petroleum spilled out into the ocean.

If a nuclear weapon detonates at its apex many satellites are likely to be destroyed and virtually nothing will work correctly on the planet below, possibly creating an instant economic death spiral that instantly shuts down all forms of energy and resource control and transportation, meaning people literally will die from lack of electricity, water, and lack of modes of transportation. Digital structure will be lost and there won't be an analog back-up.

Could North Korea be stopped? DailyPUMA has already explained it several times, the answer is yes.  MNNA stands for Major Non Nato Ally and by designating North Korea as an MNNA, Kim Jong Un can declare victory as he shuts down his nuclear weapon program.

Lets not forget that Kim Jong Un has suffered personally embarrassing public events such as the disappearance of his wife (most likely by his own hand), being shut out of the 2017 Winter Olympics in which even South Korea is hosting some of the games.

Jong may not have much to live for beyond making nuclear weapons, aka, Jong needs a public victory to compensate for the loss of his wife and being excluded from the 2017 Winter Olympics. Kim Jong Un either achieves victory by eventually detonating a nuclear missile, or he is granted some type of economic payback in exchange for dismantling his Nuclear Program. 

Until Jong's "Nuclear Weapon or bust" paradigm is corrected via a MNNA status, the World may soon cease to exist as we know it.

Thanksgiving Day Talking Points for Clinton Supporters and Moderate Democrats.

DailyPUMA has had the unnerving experience interacting with three or four acquaintances who have CDS, "Clinton Derangement Syndrome", as they gave epic tirades about the Clintons. What is interesting is how upon reflection I can call bullshit on the most vapid and idiotic CDS rants on issues ranging from Benghazi, Uranium One, and Monica Lewinsky.

Here are your Thanksgiving Day Clinton Talking Points, please use sparingly and wisely and don't keep engaging those with C.D.S. as they can't be helped unless they want to be helped. Some people are happy being angry and that is just their way. As a Democrat Moderate, it is your job to avoid the crazies but if possible, gently respond to them  in a public setting when possible and, if you feel you can safely respond without being physically attacked...

#1 Hillary Clinton and Benghazi.  
Hillary Clinton was blamed for Benghazi AFTER Barack Obama was re-elected. Prior to Barack Obama's election, it was Barack Obama and Secretary of DEFENSE Leon Panetta who were blamed for Benghazi for over seven weeks. The Benghazi blame game shifted to Hillary Clinton only after Obama was elected to his second term as president because Obama could no longer lose an upcoming election. The Conservative Benghazi battle cry truly borders on conspiracy and treason because the goal was to target whomever was the next Presidential Democrat in line and after Barack Obama was elected the Benghazi blame shifted to Hillary Clinton. Benghazi was a Secretary of DEFENSE issue, not Secretary of State.

When Hillary Clinton claimed a video caused the Benghazi attack, Republicans would not accept the DUAL REALITY that while its possible the false meme was done to deflect attention away from Barack Obama so close to re-election, IT WAS ALSO PLAUSIBLE that not giving credit to terrorists is one of the most effective ways to deter and demoralize terrorism. Republicans demanding that Obama publicly announce and credit a terrorist act is loopy at best, treasonous at worst. Obama got a 2 for 1, Demoralize the Terrorists while also deflecting attention away from alleged mistakes made during the Benghazi attack.

Republicans demanded the president publicize every terrorism event because even though publicly crediting a terrorist just grows terrorism. Donald Trump has had two absolutely embarrassing tragedies involving his naval fleet being damaged by slow moving frigates. Nobody is accusing the incidents of being terrorist related, but even if they were, Democrats would trust that the sitting president would know when to publicize such an event as terrorism, and when to keep quiet about it and move on.

While Republicans continued to focus on Benghazi for the past five years, 10 to 20 U.S. veterans were committing suicide on a daily basis. Over the five year tirade against Hillary Clinton and the four Benghazi deaths, Republicans have basically assisted in the preventable suicides of 10,000 to 20,000 U.S. veterans because of Republican Clinton Derangement Syndrome over four deaths in Benghazi. 

#2  Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky. 

Monica Lewinsky initiated the Consensual Affair with Bill Clinton and Bill Clinton rightly denied the affair while under oath because a legal, consensual act can NEVER be used to prove a non consensual act may have occurred at another time and place. If DailyPUMA was accused of a bank robbery, evidence that DP bank's at a different bank cannot be introduced to prove that DP robbed the bank in question. 

In the case of Bill Clinton, The most the prosecutor should have done was simply ask, "Have you ever engaged in nonconsensual sex with Monica Lewinsky?" Bill Clinton states no, end of discussion. Clinton lied under oath because he knew he should not have been forced to testify under oath over a consensual act and that was his way of calling bullshit. Bill Clinton's defiance under oath was justifiable in this very particular instance. Forcing a president to testify under oath regarding their own personal, consensual activities  when the activities were legal and did not interfere with their presidential duties actually undermines and weakens the position of the presidency in a treasonous sort of way.

The real abusers of Monica Lewinsky were the FBI! The FBI treated Monica Lewinsky brutally during their 10 hour, 10th floor sequestration of her. Lewinsky was not allowed to mae any phone calls, not even to her parents or to an attorney. Lewinsky considered jumping through a 10 floor window to her death to avoid the FBI evil doers in the room. 

Lewinsky's deleted, private thoughts on her computer were resurrected by the FBI Thought Police and then released to the world to Lewinsky's utter humiliation and shame. The ongoing meme that Clinton abused Lewinsky actually is an affront to all woman since it was Lewinsky who initiated the encounter, Bill Clinton was Monica Lewinsky's trophy. It's a sign of disrespect to all woman to treat Lewinsky like she was the victim when she was actually the instigator and at the very least, the equivalent. It's further an affront to all women that Monica Lewinsky never received an apology or reparations from the FBI.

#3. Uranium One. 
Cannonfire and Shepard Smith of Fox News have ridiculed the "Uranium One" story as a ridiculous stunt by Conservatives not worthy of further discussion.

#4. Believe Women Attacks Against Bill Clinton.         CannonFire calls into question the most recent attacks against Bill Clinton, claiming most if not all of the Clinton era victims were either compensated or forced to admit something happened by Kenneth Starr, even if it meant lying, and all changed their stories as time went on.
