Down in the mud…

Trump has decided to double-down on his primary scorched earth strategy – guess, he feels he can dominate the mainstream media, as they collude with the Clinton/Obama/Democratic Party machines, to steamroll Trump into the dirt.

The problem the media has is so few Americans trust them to be an honest-broker and tell the truth.  They were trying to cover-up and carry water for Hillary’ health issues.  In fact, when Hillary collapsed on September 11th, if that civilian person hadn’t posted his video of Hillary collapsing on Twitter, the media would have covered it up completely and denied there was any problem. We would have been sold the she was just “dehydrated” story.

Andrea Mitchell is a complete Hillary cheerleader, Chuck Todd was exchanging emails with Debbie Wasserman Schultz, to do in Sanders in the primary, this Washington Post reporter, David Fahrenthold, gleefully reports every bit of dirt he can dig up about the Trump Foundation, but he sure isn’t interested in looking into the Clinton Foundation or David Brock’s non-profit irregularities.  This media collusion, to help Hillary, permeates the mainstream media and it might end up helping Trump.

While Trump may dig himself to defeat, by going too far into the mud, at the same time, he is going to drag the Clintons and the media right down there with him.  The corrupt media collusion is how Bill Clinton master-minded the “GOP Insurgency” and set-up his perfect triangulation strategy in the primary.  In March, I wrote:

Trump’s mass media saturation for months on end last year, where the media gave him millions of dollars of free air time and where he relentlessly repeated his litany of buzz words and hollow phrases, came loaded down, not with policy, but with some of the most vicious sleaze was, in plain English,  CHEATING – it was cheating and fraud on a massive scale.  From many sources:

And here’s the most elucidative account of the cheating:  “Les Moonves Exposes the Trump Media Game” 

So, now we are at Phase Two, the general election steamroller effort to destroy Trump.

Many crazy conspiracy theories keep cropping up about Hillary and the media corruption, but oddly enough, some are true, and these feed the perception that the media is rigging the system for Hillary.   Her “dehydrated” story was total bs, but many in the media dutifully sell Clinton talking points and their obvious one-sided reporting is totally out in the open in this election.

Trump whined about his mic not working during the debate.  Hillary mocked him.  Today it was reported that Trump’s mic really wasn’t working properly during the debate:

“The Commission on Presidential Debates admitted Friday there were indeed issues with Donald Trump’s audio at Monday’s debate – four days after the Republican nominee complained about sound issues inside the venue and was mocked for it by Hillary Clinton.

“Regarding the first debate, there were issues regarding Donald Trump’s audio that affected the sound level in the debate hall,” the CPD said in a short statement Friday afternoon.

While Trump already has taken a drubbing from political analysts for aspects of his performance Monday, the unusual — and belated — statement from the commission boosts his claim that he was having microphone problems.

“I was a little bit upset that the microphone in the room wasn’t working,” Trump told reporters Monday night.

The next day, he continued to bring up the sound issues.

“My microphone in the room, they couldn’t hear me,” Trump said on Fox and Friends. “I wonder if it was set up that way,” he added. “It was terrible.””

McClatchyDC has an article up on the year-long Democratic effort to groom Alicia Machado,  as the Hispanic woman mistreated by Donald Trump:

Millions of Americans heard the name Alicia Machado for the first time this week in the final minutes of the most-watched presidential debate in history.

But there were actually a year’s worth of twists and turns, largely behind the scenes, that ledHillary Clinton to utter the name of the Latina beauty queen, turning Machado into a major figure in the final weeks of the presidential race.

American Bridge, an opposition research group, learned about the 1996 Miss Universe’s story last year. It sold the information directly to the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee and passed it on to Correct the Record, a super political action committee, which also sold it to Clinton’s campaign, according to three people familiar with the transactions who were not authorized to speak publicly.

At this point, I can’t even predict where this Election 2016 race will go, but I do know where it will end up – NO MATTER WHAT .

Hillary is going to win, even if the Clinton/Obama/Democratic corrupt political machines have to write and sell an entire false narrative about the election results to the American people. The massive level of Obama administration corruption, makes it imperative that the Dems keep control of the White House.  If they could make her email server scandal disappear, lying to the American people about the election results will be just a small step further, with their Wholesale Public Corruption.<

The mainstream media will happily sell that, even it is a lie.

Social Media….the wild frontier

JK sent me an email today about my Machado blog post.  I did send him a response and I’m going to post it right here (typos and all).  I am doing my own redacting, of the names of my husband’s platoon sergeant wife, who contacted me on Thanksgiving Day in 2014, after not hearing from her since Desert Storm.  JK was mentioning “social media”, which he avoids completely.  I’ve been exploring social media since 1998, when I first posted comments on the Excite politics message boards.  I wrote about what happened to me in the Messages of mhere posts, listed on the top of my home page.  Can’t prove any of it, so feel free to dismiss me as a lunatic.  Here’s my email to JK:

So many strange things have happened to me with “social media” – starting with that crap back in ’98 on the Excite message boards.  I’ve explored SM over the years, looking for a way to expose thatwitch2016, but fat lot of good any of that has done.  When I decided to write my story on my blog in 2013, I sent an email to Gladius and asked his opinion.  He recommended pseudonyms, so that’s what I did.  Then I became curious about Elizabeth O’Bagy and well, you know all that.

I had a facebook account under my real name – with less than a hundred “friends” – family and people I actually know.  I decided to set-up a facebook page for my blog, although I rarely even go to that facebook page.  I opened it under the name Holly Asbury (it’s mine and Tom’s middle names).

National Review switched to facebook comments a couple months ago, so some of the moderators set-up a Qwiket comment page and many of the National Review regulars commenters gravitated to this new Qwiket site.  This is common in social media – I tried politics chat rooms years ago (looking for a way to implement my plan to expose that witch – THAT has been my goal for 17 years).  Anyways, chat comes and goes fast – your comments disappear into the ether, but you get to know the regulars and I made friends there, even some of the hardcore Dems liked me.  Those chat rooms were dumped by the company, but some of the regulars located a new format (just like this NR Qwiket migration) and most of the regulars moved there.  Now, even though Disqus comments come and go, all my comments (from wherever I post a comment that uses the Disqus comments) are in my Disqus profile history.   Twitter works the same way – your tweet history is open.  Disqus does allow you to keep your comment history private though.

Now, in my NR Disqus commenting, something strange happened after people there got to know me arguing about Trump/Hillary.  A man, who posted sounding like a Rubio-supporter, friended me on my Holly Asbury facebook account.  I recognized is name when I got the friend request, so I accepted it, before even checking out his facebook page.  And then another man, who sounded like a retired military officer on Disqus comments, friended me too.  So, I have 2 friends on the Holly Asbury facebook.

The Rubio-supporter guy uses the name, Victor Laszlo Boros, and all his comments sounded like he was in the CA area.  Here’s his bio on his facebook:


The other guy goes by the name, Bill Dean and his bio says:

Retired USAF Colonel

I have no idea who these people really are or why that Boros guy friended me.

I often feel like I’m being set-up.

I had some guy try to shut me up at NR back when Trump was on his “committing war crimes ISIS plan” and that guy wrote:

LincolnAppleyard susanholly • 3 days ago
SURRENDER NOW Sue! It’s the only possible outcome…

That comment followed my comment about how everyone has to follow the law and I was talking about George Washington’s Farewell Address.  That guy’s name and that comment were removed.  Suspect he closed the account.  Around the time of that SURRENDER NOW Sue! comment, my computer kept freezing constantly and crashing.  I was using Mozilla Firefox  and that crashed and then one day, my computer died.  

ALL of these social media formats are designed to create mindless repetition, lazy cut and paste mentality and a sort of brainwashing/herd mentality.  As soon as Wikipedia started, I warned my kids that this is dangerous and will be exploited to undermine fact-checking and a reverence for integrity for academic rigor in research.  That the major search engines set up their algorithms to make Wikipedia dominant shows this is a concerted effort to create a “post-reality” world.

I told you about my Pinterest account – that’s under my real name.  Back on Thanksgiving in 2014 – two guys Tom served with in Desert Storm called – out of the blue.  We hadn’t heard from the HHHHHHHHHs since Desert Storm. YYY was one of Tom’s platoon sergeants during Desert Storm and he’s a small town police chief in Kansas.  XXXX talked to me for over an hour, but I found  the call strange.  She mentioned facebook, so I sent her a friend request while we were talking on the phone on Thanksgiving.  I don’t post much on facebook, although I do link stuff from my Pinterest to my facebook (recipes and craft stuff).  By May 2015  I saw she followed me on Pinterest and I know I told you her profile makes no sense – she has over 200 followers – most of them male names – many with ZERO pins on their profiles and they’re such a diversity 16-bean soup that I don’t believe  these are not people XXXX knows from her facebook or small town Kansas.  Her Pinterest account doesn’t change – she’s not actually using it.  Pinterest is such a female thing – especially XXXX and my Pinterest accounts.  She quilts and does a lot of counted cross stitch – that’s what her pins are – so all these male followers made no sense.  When she started following me on Pinterest, I sent her a private facebook message and told her that I saw she followed me, so I followed her Pinterest too and I told her I have two blogs and I gave her the links.  No response, although the day I sent her that message – my LB blog stats went crazy and I can’t see XXXX being that enthused reading politics stuff.  I have suspected all along that thatwitch2016 or her minions have that asshole, americanrommel, keeping tabs on me through other soldiers, from (redacted my husband’s unit in Desert Storm).  Sounds paranoid and strange, but something was wrong with that phone call from XXXX.


With this election, so many strange things have happened – like as soon as Trump got in the race, there were these gang-up attacks in Disqus – I noticed that at the American Thinker and National Review, it would be 6-8 of the Trump horde would show-up and start name-calling and attacking if I posted anything negative about Trump.  They did this to anyone, who posted anything negative about Trump.  it wasn’t just calling me a stupid liberal – it was stuff like calling me a cunt and that sort of stuff.   At the American Thinker comments threads – most of the Trump horde had this same follower, LuisF, in their profiles.  LuisF’s profile was bizarre – following over 90,000 people, only 22 comments, none of them having to do with politics – a website listed for a web design business, but that website was crappy as hell…  Red flags that something was off with that and his name showing up as following all of them had to mean something.  I don’t understand the techno stuff to understand how they run fake bots or trolls.  Then there were the swarming attacks on National Review by alt-right thugs – the mods said that some of the alt-right websites advertised the attacks on National Review and posted pointers for how to evade the moderators and how to assume the names of the moderators during these attacks.  It was very odd to see conservatives posting vile, racist stuff during these attacks, but when you checked the profile, you could see these were “new” commenters with only a few posts in their comment history.

As to my post on Machado and now McCain/O’Bagy – I suspect hostile foreign intelligence at work.  Trump’s entire campaign is bungling, disorganized reactionaries – that was planned.  Newt and Giuliani are as stupid about spin and modern media efforts as Trump is.  Kellyanne spends all her time trying to rein in Trump and clean up his media messes – no time for her to actually manage a messaging campaign.  That Mexican president invitation made no political sense for the Mexican president – it damaged him domestically and he already is very unpopular.  Trump blew that too, but that was an opportunity “someone” orchestrated to help him “look” presidential.  With this Machado, who had been living in Mexico, Hillary’s camp had carefully packaged all these lib media stories about Machado to launch,  after she delivered her parting salvo at the debate.  That Wikipedia  hit about Machado was some savvy operator working to counter-attack Hillary’s PR blitz.  Here again, Trump is a moron – all those stupid memes in the primary were fed to him.  Everyone in his campaign has to wait for Trump decrees before speaking and whenever they answer questions – there’s no coordinated message control.   Trump and his bungling campaign were broadsided by that Machado attack, so I doubt they put the negative stuff in Machado’s Wikipedia bio. I have also  been very suspicious of The Last Refuge blog for a long time – suspect it’s a foreign agitprop front.

Truthfully, I am weary of all this crap – I hate Twitter, I hate Disqus comments, I hate facebook, but most of all I hate living like this, feeling like I can’t trust anyone.  This has been a hell of a lot of bullshit, all over speaking my mind online.    Sorry for going all boohooey there – I am fine.  Planning on writing more non-political stuff soon and I have enough craft and sewing stuff to keep me busy for the rest of my life😉

Take care and stay safe,


My two blogs are this one and, another WordPress blog, where I occasionally post recipes and craft stuff. I post on Disqus under the name: susanholly, although several years ago on National Review, I used the name: mhere.  On Twitter, I use: libertybelle.

Nothing James Comey Says About Hillary Clinton Makes Any Sense

James Comey testified in front of two congressional committees this week. And his story about the Hillary Clinton email investigation still makes no sense.

Where do you report a suspicious Tweet?

This might be a serious national security issue – in fact, I feel very strongly someone in our counter-intelligence should be investigating this matter!

Today on Twitter I retweeted a tweet, just so I would have it and because it’s about something that has been bothering me since 2013:  Elizabeth O’Bagy.  I strongly suspect John McCain is being targeted by a hostile foreign intelligence service, to make him look bad.  I strongly suspect he was set-up in 2013.

Here’s the Tweet from the afternoon (9/28)  and I don’t know if this has been Photoshopped or not – BUT it is VERY peculiar.

libertybelleTweet text

I sure suspect that Alicia Machado Wikipedia exposure was a savvy foreign intelligence agency at work, but this crap is even worse.  A person commented, “FYI Nikolaki is censored in France”.

A few years back, I was exploring “crowd-sourcing” and a “conservative” blog, The Last Refuge Blog”, which has gained a good deal of attention in this 2016 election.  They had a “crowd-sourcing” format, that covered, among other topics, the black grievance industry, of black political leaders/activists sensationalizing police/black issues.  To make a long story short, I was fascinated with the amount of information they churned out, but I wondered about the fact-checking process and I wondered why they allowed overtly racist comments.  I posted some comments on Islamic history from the Islamic Golden Age (YES, there really was an Islamic Golden Age).  My comments were blocked and I ended up being banned.

When Trump entered the race, something bizarre happened with The Last Refuge blog – it became the Trump Polling Update Center, with constant streams of “Trump winning in all the polls” propaganda and campaign insider information.    Considering the Trump campaign has been a disorganized hot mess, I found it amazing that this blog had up-to-the-minute insider campaign news, videos, and PILES of polling information.

Sure, my questioning nature makes me consider “conspiracy theories”, but the TRUTH is sophisticated intelligence agencies around the world, run long-term programs targeting their adversaries (these are by nature “conspiracies” – in that these secret activities are meant to undermine or harm their adversaries).  So, it’s no big deal to me, to be dismissed as a “conspiracy nut”, because I just keep digging for information.

The Russians are reported to be engaged in a high-level of interference in our election.

Back in the Fall of 2013, I became curious about the push by the Institute for the Study of War (ISW) to urge President Obama to get engaged in the Syrian civil war.  The argument was we needed to stop ISIS and arm the  “moderate Syrian rebels”.   Why on earth we would jump into a civil war, with Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya in chaos, Egypt trying to regain stability after the Hillary/Obama backing of the “mostly-secular” Muslim Brotherhood, eluded me.  Then there was the basic question: what is the end game plan if ISIS and Assad are defeated?  The truth is Syrian rebels were varying shades of Islamists – none actually “moderate” and all of them, even though they fight each other, when push comes to shove, they will work together against Americans.

A young woman emerged from the ISW, as the subject matter expert on Syria, Elizabeth O’Bagy.  Everyone from Jonh Kerry, to John McCain, to the media bought into O’Bagy, because the ISW put her forth as The Expert on Syria.   O’Bagy, did not have a doctorate degree, she was the political director of a lobbying group called the Syrian Emergency Task Force (SETF).  She wrote a paper on Syria, in 2012,  for the ISW and in her bio, she listed her thesis topic as “female militancy”.  Since the ISW never even vetted her educational credentials,  I doubt they looked closely at her background.  She was exposed as having lied about her educational credentials and was fired by the ISW.  Senator John McCain, turned right around and hired her, as a legislative assistant.

O’Bagy and her SETF lobbying group escorted John McCain to Syria, in the Spring of 2013, on a “secret” fact-finding trip.  A photo of John McCain started floating about the internet, from his trip to Syria, with allegations that he was posed with Palestinian/ISIS terrorists, in fact, the president of the SETF, was reported to have ties to Palestinian terrorists.  McCain’s staff dismissed this claim.  BUT John McCain turned right around and hired this woman, who had just been exposed as having lied about her educational credentials.  I’ve written extensively about O’Bagy, starting on September 3, 2013:

And plenty more,,,

I and many other journalists (google Bryan Preston and Patrick Poole at PJ Media)  have written extensively about O’Bagy, the Syrian moderate mirage, and the reliance of top government officials on this woman’s “information” over VETTED US intelligence information:

“At another hearing that week, Kerry responded to a lawmaker’s skepticism about the existence of moderate rebels by saying that only a fraction of the fighters were “al Qaida and the bad guys.” Maybe 15 to 25 percent, he estimated.

“There is a real moderate opposition that exists,” Kerry said.

If the skeptical lawmaker was reassured, professional Syria watchers were not. Many were aghast at what sounded to them like either dangerous naivete or an outright lie, given that the U.S. government’s own internal assessments had found from very early in the conflict that al Qaida-style extremists were playing an outsized role in the rebel fight.”

I have no idea who to contact, but someone should be checking out this tweet – it was posted to Evan McMullin and Meghan McCain.

Vile “fat-shaming”?

As regular readers know, I am #NeverTrump&NeverHillary.  These two are both morally bankrupt and the top-tier deplorables in America.  Watching them try to outsleaze each other is exactly like many of us expected it would be – scorched earth all the way.  Most of the  mainstream media are busy dissecting Trump completely, while busily carrying water, aiding and abetting, and even doctoring photos for hard news to boost Hillary.  They are corrupt.  They were corrupt in the GOP primary too – giving Trump, a NY liberal, BILLIONS in free media to run is GOP Insurgency and sitting on negative Trump stories.  They were helping Hillary, because Trump looked to be the easiest candidate to beat.  He is as corrupt as the Clintons  and in a fitting bit of irony, he has mastered the Clinton scorched earth too.

Hillary used this Hispanic beauty queen as her narrative on Trump being a deplorable misogynist.  Do I believe Trump is a vile jerk, who says beyond the pale things?  Absolutely!  However, if you want to present someone as the paragon of offended feminist virtue and assert that Trump “fat-shamed” this beauty queen, well, he gets a chance to defend himself.  Ed O’Keefe, at Washington Post Politics,  posted the above,  CNN video, on Twitter from 1997.

You can’t make up this stuff …

Hillary brought up beauty queen, Alicia Machado, at the debate last night, whom she claimed Donald Trump fat-shamed.  In case this former Miss Universe’s, Wikipedia entry is changed, I need to post this mess that’s there now.  Apparently, the Hillary and media fact checkers didn’t bother.  Here’s the entry on her personal life:

Accusation of accessory to attempted murder[edit]

In January 1998, Machado was accused in court of aiding in an attempted murder in Venezuela, in a shooting for which her boyfriend at the time was indicted. According to the Associated Press, Machado was accused in court documents in Caracas of driving the get-away car for her boyfriend from the scene of the shooting. She was not indicted due to insufficient evidence, although her boyfriend was indicted and the judge stated that there were no alibi witnesses for Machado.[3][4] According to Reuters, the judge presiding over the case subsequently accused Alicia Machado of threatening to have him killed: “she [said] she would make sure, using her friendship with the president (Rafael Caldera), that my career as judge is ruined and then she would kill me.”[5]


In 2005, Machado was engaged to baseball star Bobby Abreu. During their engagement she was on the Spanish reality show La Granja, where she was filmed on camera during the show having sex with another member of the show, Spanish driver Fernando Acaso. She was expelled from the show and shortly after the video surfaced Abreu ended their engagement.[6][7]

On June 25, 2008, Machado gave birth to a daughter, and said that the father was her best friend Mexican businessman Rafael Hernandez Linares. Mexican news sources, quoting the Attorney General of Mexico, reported that the real father of her child was Gerardo Alvarez-Vazquez, the Mexican drug lord, of the paramilitary drug-cartel Los Negros.[8] The christening of her child was subsequently attended by the chief members of the Beltran drug cartel (the Beltrán-Leyva Cartel), including the cartel’s “boss of bossesArturo Beltrán Leyva, his brother Héctor Beltrán Leyva and the drug-lord Edgar Valdez Villarreal, “La Barbie”.[9]

Political views[edit]

On November 24, 2010, BBC Mundo confirmed that Machado had to close her Twitter account after writing a tweet that called for “peace between the Chinas”, referring to North and South Korea.[10] Her gaffe unleashed a rush of insulting posts, prompting her to go offline. “I now have a lot of psychopaths on the account and it’s best I start another one, kisses,” she signed off, according to Venezuelan media.[11]

In 2016, she has been a strong supporter of the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign.[12]

In May 2016, Machado became a U.S. citizen.[13] She has spoken out many times against Donald Trump, who, during her year as Miss Universe, she claims called her “Mrs. Piggy” because she gained weight and “Mrs. Housekeeping” because of her Hispanic background (according to the Clinton campaign).[1] Trump said: “She was impossible” and that “[s]he was the winner and you know, she gained a massive amount of weight and it was a real problem. We had a real problem. Not only that, her attitude, and we had a real problem with her.”[14]

I added the bold-type.   One can only wonder if she was properly vetted, since she just became a proud US citizen..   She might be the perfect Trump poster girl (pin-up?) for his immigration plan, LOL.
