Jed Babbin makes the case-

All the Lies: They’ve Turned Us Into a Rotting Banana Republic

“The defining characteristics of banana republics are a matter of history. First, the law is not enforced against a chosen class in a banana republic, usually the allies of the autocrat in charge. Second, foreign policy is always performed in the autocrat’s interests and often in disregard of the nation’s actual interests. This describes how America functions in the era of President Obama.”

    Anger alone does not cause revolution but combined with actual physical hunger, it is more likely. Look at Venezuela. The people have known of the corruption for decades but now that they cannot feed their children all bets are off. Americans are well fed and are increasingly free of historical wisdom. What could possibly go wrong?

    This is insulting to Banana Republics.

    Looks like RC doesn’t need a Banana Republic to be shaking.

    The lies will only get worse if the Hildabeast gets elected. Here’s a reminder from 1996 of what she is really like.

    The Banana Republic buck ends here:

    “2016 is the Flight 93 election: charge the cockpit or you die. You may die anyway. You—or the leader of your party—may make it into the cockpit and not know how to fly or land the plane. There are no guarantees.

    Except one: if you don’t try, death is certain. To compound the metaphor: a Hillary Clinton presidency is Russian Roulette with a semi-auto. With Trump, at least you can spin the cylinder and take your chances.”

    Speaking of banana republics, how long before NZ has a crime called “Insufficient grovelling to gestapo”?
    ‘Couple shaken by Dunedin police treatment after mid-flight incident
    A woman says she was left shaking by the “over-the-top” response from Dunedin police after she and her partner were rebuked for opening a drink mid-flight.
    The Melbourne couple, who declined to be named, were each issued $600 fines by police on their arrival in Dunedin on an Air New Zealand flight from Wellington on Tuesday night, for being intoxicated on the flight.
    They said they were not intoxicated and the two police officers who met them repeatedly declined their requests to be breath-tested.
    One lashed out when the woman asked for their contact details.
    “He screamed in my face and told me to shut up otherwise ‘I will pull you in and arrest you’.
    Good at bullying, not so good at basic policing:

    “Obama’s greatest achievement”

    Well, of course it is. He has given Jarrett and his backers just what they wanted.

  8. mawm says:

    “… is a case study in international charity fraud, of mammoth proportions.”

    Well, of course it is. Its sole purpose has been to enrich the Clintons and to reward their lackeys.

    …is that the Clinton Foundation entities are part of a network that has defrauded donors and created illegal private gains of approximately $100 billion in combined magnitude, and possibly more,…

    ” … . .. and that not all people who menstruate are women .. … … ”

    I hope the idiot who came up with that one isn’t studying anatomy.

    How do I define a banana republic? When everything of value has been sold, all you have is a few banana trees to make a living. Everything else is owned by somebody else. This means you aren’t in charge, someone else is and they make all the rules. And that would describe the Clinton Cash scandal.
