Will Donald Trump Get My Vote In 2020 and Retain My Admiration And Deep Respect ?

On November, 2016, I felt deeply honored to cast my vote for Donald Trump for President.  This was the first time in 44 years that I voted for a major party candidate for president.  I voted in every presidential election in the past since I turned 21 years of age, but in the past eleven presidential elections, I voted for third party candidates since I thought that the main party candidates were worthless.  I believe that history has shown that my decision was correct.

It is now time for President Trump to display powerful leadership and accomplish a very unpleasant task.  President Trump must move forward with the difficult task of directing his Attorney General to name an unbiased prosecutor from the AG’s office to thoroughly investigate the many alleged criminal activities of Bill and Hillary Clinton and all of their alleged associates.

As a law abiding American, I do not wish nor expect President Trump to allow an individual to conduct a witch hunt or a smear campaign.  The prosecutor must be totally unbiased, fair, and just in every aspect of his/her investigation.

It strongly appears that any sane and sensible American would conclude that the very top levels of the FBI and the U.S. Justice Department under the direction of President Obama have been deeply involved with numerous criminal activities directed by the Clinton Family and the Clinton Foundation and their associates.  These alleged criminal actions strike at the heart of the American People and the U.S. Constitution.

I strongly believe that justice delayed is justice denied.  Therefore, if there is not a special justice department investigative team working to legally gather evidence regarding the Clinton Family, the Clinton Foundation, and the Clinton Associates on or before January 30, 2018, I must conclude that President Donald Trump is unable to execute the powers of the President and Chief of the Executive Branch of the U.S. Government.

R. Van Conoley ( Editor’s Note: I understand that this is a difficult task for President Trump. Also, high level officials must be placed under oath.  Some of those that should be placed under oath include: Loretta Lynch, James Comey, Huma Abedin, Sally Quillian Yates, Adam Schiff, Andrew McCabe, Jill McCabe, and many others associated with Secretary of State Clinton who aided and abetted in the destruction of evidence. )

Pearl Harbor – The 76th. Anniversary

On December 7, 1941, the Imperial Forces of Japan attacked U.S. Military forces at Pearl Harbor.  Congress declared War against Japan and the U.S. entered World War II.  On December 7, 2017, the U.S. will have been an occupying force in Japan for almost 72  years.  While I believe that the U.S. has shown great compassion and given great assistance to Japan, it is far past the time for the U.S. to leave Japan.

One simple example should suffice to convince all sane and sensible Americans that the U.S. military forces should have left Japan more than 36 years ago.  The Dictator of North Korea, Kim Jung-un, now has a nuclear capacity and sophisticated rockets to deliver their atomic bombs.  Had Japan been allowed and encouraged to defend their own country, I feel 99.999% certain that Japan would have nuclear weapons that exceed the quality of the North Korean weapons.  North Korea would not be so bold if they had to deal with a militarized Japan.

However, the dim witted bureaucrats in the U.S. could not comprehend this sane and sensible logic. Therefore, the U.S. is in a situation where the U.S. is bound by outdated treaties to stand in opposition to North Korea.  This is a serious error and could cause a nuclear exchange in Asia that could and should have been avoided.

As an American, I can not fully express my everlasting appreciation to the men who fought and died in World War II to keep America safe and free.  Hopefully President Donald Trump will develop a wise policy toward the Pacific Asian region that will support all U.S. interests and allow Japan to determine their own defense policies.

Rats Desert The Sinking Clinton Ship

William D. Campbell is a former FBI informant and lobbyist who will testify before Congress about Hillary Clinton’s and Barack Obama’s involvement in the sale of Uranium One.  Uranium One was a Canadian company that owned uranium mines in the U.S. Uranium One was sold to Rosatom, a Russian Company that acted as a front for the Russian Government.

Bill and Hillary Clinton have apparently created an ongoing criminal enterprise that has brought millions and millions of dollars into their personal bank accounts and the bank account of the Clinton Foundation.  Many other corrupt individuals have politically attached themselves to the Clinton Klan for their own political and financial Machiavellian interests.

Now, with the William D. Campbell testimony looming large, many former Clinton supporters and cronies are abandoning the Clintons like rats abandoning a sinking ship. Donna Brazile, a former Clinton supporter, is employing a “James Comey” style strategy of doublespeak to disavow the Clintons.  Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York has stated in effect that she now disavows the Clintons. This is noteworthy because she was in the past glad to use the power and the money that Clinton influence brought.

R. Van Conoley  (Editor’s Note: Hopefully Mr. Campbell will remain in good health and be able to testify before the U.S. Congress. It would be sad if he suffered an untimely death before he could testify. Remember that Sam Giancana died unexpectedly of gunshot wounds on June 19, 1975, just before his expected testimony before congress.)

( Editor’s Note 2: If ever in the history of our Republic a Special Prosecutor was called for, the time is now.  A Special Prosecutor is desperately needed to investigate the Clinton Foundation and the multiple sources of foreign money that were given to this foundation by foreign governments.  There is a labyrinthine, rhizmorphous, and arcane trail of financial interactions that need tom be totally examined.  Also, former federal elected officials must not be allowed to abuse their power and influence at the expense of the American People.  A Special Prosecutor is needed to exonerate Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and the DNC of all charges or prosecute any and all mentioned above of U.S. Law violations.  A very thorough and very open and fair investigation is needed if America is to survive. America can not survive without a resolution to this allegation.)

Michael T. Flynn

Michael T. Flynn is a Lt. General who served in the U.S. Military for 33 years.  General Michael T. Flynn was appointed as the 18th. Director of the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency by President Barack Obama.  He served as DIA Director from July, 2012 to August, 2014, under President Obama.  Flynn, a democrat, was nominated by President Obama and his nomination was confirmed by the U.S. Senate.

Candidate for President Donald Trump utilized Flynn as a consultant in his 2016 Presidential campaign.  President Donald Trump appointed General Flynn to serve as his National Security Advisor after his election.  Flynn served in that position for 24 days from January 20, 2017 until February 13, 2017.

The Anti-Trump activists wanted to use Flynn to attempt to imply a connection between Trump and the Russian Government.  Flynn has stated that he will testify before Congress, under oath, if he is given total immunity.

WWW.Sanityandsense.com strongly believes that General Flynn should be given blanket (total) immunity and should be required to testify before congress.  His testimony should be in open session and his testimony should include his two years of service under President Obama and his 24 days of service under President Trump.

Flynn’s testimony regarding his 24 days of service under President Trump should at best prove to be trivial and of no importance.  However, Flynn’s testimony regarding his two years of service under President Obama would clearly demonstrate the misfeasance, malfeasance, and nonfeasance of a corrupt Obama Administration.  Flynn’s testimony would clearly demonstrate that President Obama violated U.S. Laws and issued directives that were not in the best interests of the American People.

The Democrat Congressional crooks were all for compelling Flynn to testify until they realized that his testimony would seriously damage Obama.  Both the Democrat Congressional crooks and the Republican Congressional crooks are not interested in the truth nor in serving the American People.  The Congressional Crooks are only interested in slandering the opposition party and in promoting their own Machiavellian self interests.  A majority of the American People know this and that is why the American People elected Donald Trump as President.

The Politicalization and Criminalization of the FBI

This website was created with the intent of serving as a watchdog for the American People.  This website was not designed to support any political party nor any religion nor any special interest groups.

This website believes that it is not in the best interests of American Justice or in the best interests of the American People for former FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III to remain as a Special Counsel assigned to investigate the 2016 election.  This website believes that former Directors of the FBI were politicized and criminalized by former presidents and former Attorney Generals of the U.S. before the election of Donald Trump in 2016.

This website believes that Robert S. Mueller should immediately resign as Special Counsel.  Sanityandsense.com believes that any and all allegations made against Donald Trump should be thoroughly investigated even though there is no credible evidence presently available.  Additionally this website believes that all of the political activities of Hillary Clinton and all activities of the Clinton Foundation should be investigated thoroughly.  Also, this website believes that the activities of the FBI should be investigated thoroughly.  These investigations must be led by a non biased Special Counsel.

As a former Director of the FBI, Robert Mueller is clearly not able to act as Special Counsel. Mr. Mueller, himself, should be required to testify before a non biased Special Counsel.  Both Mueller and James Comey should testify under oath regarding the very questionable actions of the FBI.  The politicalization and possible criminalization of the FBI is an extremely serious matter for all Americans.  A non biased Special Counsel is required immediately.

Hollywood Hypocrisy and Harvey Weinstein

Harvey Weinstein was expelled by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.  Weinstein’s vile and reprehensible behavior was public knowledge for decades.  It should give all law abiding and ethical American Citizens pause to consider that there were thousands of Hollywood insiders who protected Weinstein by their silence.  Individuals in Hollywood would rather remain silent about criminal behavior rather than risk being shunned by the Hollywood hypocrites. Some people are willing to lie, cheat, and steal and violate every ethical value in order to remain associated with a cultural or a political group.

One former child star made the following statement: ” I can tell you that the number one problem in Hollywood was and is and always will be pedophilia.”

If there is anything in this world that caused the creation of this website, Sanityandsense.com , it was the failure of the federal government and many state governments to prosecute child sexual abuse by Roman Catholic Priests.  The Catholic Church was such a powerful entity that prosecutors on both the state level and the federal level failed in their moral duty to prosecute priests that were child sexual abusers. Type the word:” Vatican” into the search box at the top of the home page and a series of articles will be displayed for interested readers.  Just as the Hollywood hypocrites covered up for the totally immoral behavior of their Hollywood friends, the higher levels of the Catholic Church covered up for pedophile priests for many years.

I find it extraordinarily interesting that the Hollywood hypocrites continually slandered Donald Trump and I would also note that when Donald Trump was a candidate for President, the Pope hurled several verbal slanders at candidate Donald Trump.  Of course Americans should clearly be able to see how the far left media in the U.S. has abused Donald Trump with their slanderous rhetoric.

It is no wonder that Donald Trump is so strongly disliked by the Hollywood hypocrites, the Pope, and the left wing media in the U.S.  Donald Trump does not smoke, drink alcohol, or abuse drugs. No wonder that Donald Trump has this sleazy alliance as his main opposition.  With enemies like these, it is absolute proof that Donald Trump is a good man and a loyal American.  The more these sleaze balls slander him, the more I admire and deeply respect Donald Trump as a courageous and straight talking American.

R. Van Conoley  ( Editor’s Note: This website was not designed to support any political party or any religion or any special interest group.  This website was designed to present facts whenever it appeared that state governments or the powerful federal government were not being truthful with the American People. )

Editor’s Note 2: ( This website sincerely believes that Weinstein violated both state and federal laws. Additionally, this website hopes that Weinstein’s criminal conviction(s) happen in state court(s). State prisons are harder than the country club atmosphere of some federal prisons. After a fair trial, it would be appropriate for Weinstein to serve time in a state prison so he can learn how many of his victims felt. )
