Quotes of the Week:
“They are often connected to big drug cartels, they are not just gangs of kids anymore. They are often the kinds of kids that are called super predators – no conscience, no empathy. We can talk about why they ended up that way, but first, we have to bring them to heel.”

Editor’s Note: This is the last edition of the Watchdog before Election Day next Tuesday. It’s almost over! Now, you need to do two things: One, make sure you’re fully informed and ready to vote (if you haven’t already). Two, go out and vote!
Here’s where you can find your polling location and sample ballot:
In This Issue:
Here we are, loyal readers. The bitter end. Either you have already voted or you are quietly biding your time until Election Day.
We close out the cycle with some final thoughts regarding one of the most vexing, frustrating, and bizarre presidential campaigns we’ve ever seen.
The first observation is that Bill and Hillary Clinton are most corrupt political figures in perhaps the history of this country.
These people make Richard M. Nixon look like a pick pocket. Hell, they make the Soprano Family look like a bunch of pikers.
These two predators have been running a criminal enterprise for 30 years, dating back to the Arkansas days.
Where to start? Where to end?
We all know about Bill the rapist, Bill the liar, Bill the pedophile.
We all remember cattle gate, the Rose Law Firm, Monica, etc.
That all looks small time in the face of the Clinton Foundation pay-for-play scheme that netted the Clintons over $100 million. No wonder FBI sources are saying that indictments are likely.
And then there’s the email server. What seems to be lost in the email story is the rationale for having a home brew server in the first place.
Hint: It wasn’t about convenience. She had a personal server installed in order to hide communications from Freedom of Information Act requests as well as hide communications from anyone she chose to hide them from.
The email server was, in other words, a device used solely to evade the law, conceal communications, and otherwise avoid the very laws under which the rest of us must live.
In that sense, the email server stands as a potent symbol of the Clinton’s above-the-law modus operandi.
The server stands as a reminder that the Clinton’s unmitigated arrogance, insatiable greed, and nihilistic world view.
Put another way, they’re really scummy human beings.
Moreover, Captain Obvious has now arrived on the scene in the form of FBI sources stating that it’s a “99% probability” that foreign governments hacked the email server.
Thus, Hillary Clinton put the safety of Americans directly at risk with her concealment scheme.
This will no doubt become all the truer in coming days and weeks when we learn that there was more classified information on her server than what is now known.
Whether that information comes from WikiLeaks or an examination of pedophile/pervert Anthony Weiner’s lap top, we don’t know.
Little did we know that “Carlos Danger” was a danger to more than teenage girls.
As practiced liars and scam artists, the Clintons have successfully avoided being held accountable for their crimes over the years.
Has their luck run out?
We don’t know. What we do know is that Bill and Hillary Clinton utterly lack integrity, honesty, and basic human decency.
The other observation is that we now know that there is indeed an Establishment in this country that controls outcomes to favor a small elite at the expense of everyone else.
Exhibit “A” is the mainstream media, which has been caught red-handed assisting the Clinton campaign while working to trash anyone who dares get in the way.
Donna Brazile at CNN passes on debate questions to the Clinton team.
Other journalists offer stories and quotes to the Clinton camp before publishing, giving the campaign veto authority.
No wonder 75% of respondents in a recent USA Today poll said the media was biased in favor if Clinton.
We can only wonder what the other 25% are smoking.
Even 74% of self-identified Clinton supporters believe the media favors her.
Even more ironic are the numbers in the same poll that show that 45% of respondents believe that news media is the primary threat to our election.
By comparison, only 10% say that about “foreign interests.”
No matter who prevails on election day, the mainstream media has finally been exposed and has perhaps irreparably destroyed any remaining shred of objectivity remaining.
The media in this country will never be trusted again.
But it’s not just Trump and the biased coverage of him.
Look at the way FBI Director Comey has been attacked. He was a darling of the Establishment when he ruled for them.
Now that the evidence has taken him and the Bureau another way, his very integrity is under assault.
How typical of the Clintons that people who dare get in the way are savaged. Whether it’s the FBI Director or one of Bill’s sexual assault victims, the attacks are brutal and sustained.
Other institutions like the Department of Justice have been similarly compromised.
Attorney General Lynch meets with Bill Clinton while Hillary is under investigation.
A political appointee at Justice tips of the Clinton campaign to committee hearing activities.
Third, given what we know, it is now time for GOP candidates to put their DFL opponents on the hot seat.
Every DFL candidate should be put on the record responding to the following question:
Does Hillary Clinton possess the integrity and character to serve as president of the United States?
Of course, Republicans must ask this question because the media won’t ask it of Democrats (see above).
It would quite interesting to watch Rick Nolan, Angie Craig, and a bevy of legislative candidates answer this question while standing in front of a microphone.
It has become clear that a vote for anyone other than Donald Trump is a vote to give Bill and Hillary Clinton the keys to the Oval Office.
To do so would reward the Clintons for years of criminal behavior and knowingly entrust the presidency to a person lacking in the character and integrity needed to effectively lead a great nation.
While some would find it easy to vote for Trump and others not so easy, it is imperative to deny the White House the Clintons.
Their reclaiming of the White House will only mean an even more diminished America, as a President Clinton would surely be weakened, dealing not only with criminal justice issues, but also likely issues of blackmail.
Who knows what kind of dirt foreign governments, friend and foe alike, may have acquired from the home brew server?
Clearly, the Clintons view government service merely as a means to acquire power and wealth.
They have no reservations whatsoever about leveraging our governmental institutions to self-deal, grift, defraud, and otherwise run nothing short of a criminal enterprise.
Thank God for the RICO statute.
See you all on the high ground November 9th!
